ONE OF LARGEST CONCERNS OF ITS KIND
Indications That It Is the Intention
to Compete with Armonr and
Swift In Tula Field
The report, which haa been current
among business men during the past few
days to the effect that the Cudahy Pack
ing company baa acquired ownership of
the Kcbraxka-Iowa Creamery company,
seema to be true. Joseph Blum has bfn
placed In control of the buslners, with an
asslstsnt, aa manager for the Cudahy peo
ple. Since the assumption of the manage
ment by Mr. Blum, a few days ago. R. A.
Stewart, who under the old management
was treaaurer, haa taken but little Interest
in the affair of the concern, although his
name at 1 11 stands on the stationery In thd
aame capacity. Aa Edward A. Cudahy was
absent from the city last night, and none
of hla employes teemed to be familiar with
the transaction whereby he secured con
trol of the business, none of the particu
lars of the purchase could be learned.
The Nebraska-Iowa Creamery company
waa first organized by J. J. King at Weal
Point, Neb. Several years ago the head
quarters wero removed to this city, where
they have been since. From a small be
ginning the business has grown to large
proportions. The output at the present
time amounts to about $2,DiK per day aver
age. Fifty people are employed, and up
wards of twenty milk stations are In ope
ration. Ten route wagons are run in this
city. When the company moved into the
quarters ' which it occupies at th present
time, at 601 to Su7 South Tenth street, the
officers were J. J. King, president; R. A.
Btewart, treasurer, and F. N. Stevenson,
secretary and manuger. Mr. BtevencOn
disposed of his Interest in the concern on
June 1, and was succeeded In his duties
by C. It. Porter. Mr. King still retains his
title aa president of tho company, but It
la understood that his resignation will soon
be handed in.
The new building which the company oc
cupies, and which was erected especially
for It about one year ago. Is one of the
finest of Its kind in the country. It was
built especially for the purpose, under the
upervlsion of Mr. Stevenson, who ot the
time held the- position of secretary.,
It Is generally believed by those who are
most familiar with the creamery and cold
storage business that the acquisition o

TELLS OF THE PEKING SIEGE
Dr. Frank (ismenell Delivers later-retina-
l.crtare at Ktontae
Secretary Willis of the Toung Men's
Christian association presented John F.
Ooucher, president of the Women's Col
lege of Ualtlmore, who, after a few re
marks regarding the history of the man.
Introduced Dr. Frank D. Gamewell at
Kountte Memorial church Sunday after
noon. Dr. Oamewell was acting as mis
sionary In Peking at the time of the siege
of the foreign legations In that city by the
Boxers in 1900, and he delivered a very
Interesting addresa upon the subject of the
siege, relating many Incidents which trans
pired during the fifty-six days that the
little body of Christians waa surrounded
by a howling mob whose only thought was
to ut them to death.
Dr. Oamewell said "That the storm did
not come without warning. There had been
indications of approaching trouble all dur
ing the spring of 1900, and some mission
aries came a distance of 400 miles to find
shelter, during the outbreak, with their
friends in Peking. A trip of this distance
In China," said Dr. Oamewell, "la not to
be as lightly considered as one of the same
distance In America, for It haa to be made
In a Chinese cart and not in a Pullman
The speaker told of the letter which
was received by Minister Conger from the
Chinese foreign' office which instructed all
foreigners to leave the country within
twenty-four hours, and how no attention
was paid to the communication. lie then
entered Into an Interesting description of
tho breaking of the storm and the flight
of the Christians from their missions to
the Knglish legation, of the nights and
days spent In erecting fortifications about
the legations for self-protection. The for
tifications were almost entirely constructed
under the fire of the enemy. The speaker
said "That It waa the general supposition
In this country that the Boxers possessed
no better weapons than bows and' arrows,
or flintlock muskets, but this supposition
was wrong," and In proof of his assertion
he exhibited a case of Mauser cartridges
which he secured from one of the enemy
during the siege. "This waa not all," lie
stated. "There were 2,800 Krupp' shells
fired Into and over the fortifications during
the outbreak." Dr. Oamewell described
the death of Baron von Kettler, and the
fight which occurred at the time he was
killed. He said "that all the Christians
believed during the siege that the enemy
would soon exhaust their supply of am
munition, but after the arrival of relief a
large number of cases of Mauser cart
ridges were captured, although the firing
had been almost Incessant during the fifty
six days which the siege continued."
He told of the feelings of hone wjilch
filled the breasts of the besieged when re
ports of relief came, and of how through
the tension of imagination these reports
were frequent. In one instance the English
ambassador came down from a roof to re
port that he had seen the headlight of
the English ship Terrible, which had evi
dently been taken from the ship by a re
lief expedition to assist In finding the way
at night, but It was several weeks after
this report was circulated before the ex
pedltlon did actually arrive. The speaker
saia that , the sweetest sound which ever
greeted human ears was when the String
of the relief party was heard In the dis
tance, and they knew that help was at
hand. He painted a graphic picture of the
entry of the soldiers Into the legation, and
did not forget to mention that a man in
the American uniform was the first to set
foot Inside the enclosure.

AFFAIRS AT SOUTH OMAHA

TagraiU in the O.tj.
MUCH OF THIEVERY CHARGED UP TO THEM
Chief Annoanrrs That All of .This
Class Mast Leave the City or
Spend Their Time la
Within the last day or two the city has
been filling up with vagrants and suspi
cious characters. Fourteen arrests were
made yesterday by the police, every one
being charged as a suspicious character
or a vagrant. The cause of this raid was
the burglary at the grocery store of Philip
Krause in Albright early Sunday morning.
Until an Invoice Is taken Mr. Krause does
not know Just how much he lost, but there
was but little cash In the till when he
closed up. Most of ths goods taken con
sisted of tobacco, cigars and canned goods.
The robbery Is considered a daring one,
as there is supposed to be a policeman In
Albright day and night. Chief Brlggs was
considerably put out about the affair, and
started In to round up every suspicious
character he could find. He said that he
would make every vagrant leave the city
or else get a county Jail sentence. For a
time the city Jail was empty, and the of
ficers had nothing to do. Within the last
few days the city seems to be full of petty
thieves, whom the police say are working
their way south and east. Ths small num
ber of police officers on duty does not per
mit of a thorough patrolling of the city,
as most of the night police congregate in
the business district.
Chief Briggs is greatly In favor of a pa
trol box system, and If this Is Installed by
the city council he says that he Will aee
to it that the patrolmen are compelled to
remain on their beats during working
hours and report to police headquarters
at stated intervals. By this .system the
chief says that a great deal of petty thiev
ing In all parts of the city can be stopped.
No Additional Parkins; Houses.
A . prominent South Omaha packer said
to a Bee reporter last night that there was
no probability of any additional packing
houses being opened here for some time,
As for the report that an Independent com
pany was going to start a small plant near
Thirtieth and L streets, this packer said
that there was absolutely no foundation
for such a rumor. In the first place, there
Is ho sanitary sewer at Thirtieth and Ii
streets, and, furthermore, there Is no way
In which connection with any sewer could
be made. Another packer said: "It's all
Idle talk. There Is nothing In' the rumor."
Still another packer, who Is In a position
to know, said that all talk of opening ths
Hammond plant at this time was foolish
ness, as nothing of the sort Is contem
plated. The Hammond plant has been
stripped of most of Its machinery, and will
need Improvements costing thousands ot
dollars before It can be placed In service,
With the falling off In stock receipts at
this time of the year the packing bouses
are not making any special Improvements
and are not branching out any.
Connell Meeting; Tonight.
The city council will meet tonight but
there is nothing of Importance on the slip
so far. The ordinance extending the fran
chise of the Omaha Water company can
not be reported on until It has been pub
lished two weeks. As the ordinance has
not been published the requisite length of
tlmo ths judiciary committee will not make
a report tonight. A few old bills may be
allowed tonight on the overlap money. If
these go through this evening the overlap
will be paid and the city will be placed
on a cash basis for ths fiscal year which
ends August I, 190. - '
Looking, for a Decision.
Those Interested In the vacating ordi
nances are looking for a decision from
Judge Dickinson today. A decision was ex
pected on Saturday but the court failed to
hand down one. Many of the business men
In the city are In favor of vacating the
streets asked for as they will never be
opened to traffic and might aa well be
used for railroad tracks as to stand, as
they are, thirty feet above-the traveled
roadway. It haa been stated that with a
decision from the court the council will
hold apeclal sessions and pass the vacating
ordinance as soon aa ths law will permit
It to do ao. t
