It cannot be said the shipments of grain
have Increased through the Omaha market
since the rate slashing was first brought
to the attention of the public. The re
ceipt and shipments during January are
slightly heavier than during the holidays,
as Christmas time Is always dull, but they
ore not heavier than the figures for De
cember. The following table ahows the re
ceipts and shipments since the trouble
port from Omaha to New York 18 cents,
from Omaha to Philadelphia 17 cents and
to Baltimore 17 cents. The southern roads
then made their tariffs open at 12 cents.
Tha people who will benefit by the fight are
those who had on hand grain bought with
the old rate in view and are in a position
to ship it out before peace Comes in.
Omaha elevator companies have consider
Dlreet Effect oa Shlpplaar.
Since the cutting of rates began some
cars of grain which were already loaded
have been held on the track until the rate
should go Into shippers. To hold these cars
a demurrage charge is made by the road
of $2 a day for each car. As the gulf rate
has been reduced It Is supposed 6 cents,
a saving over the old figures of about 30
a car can be made, so that the shippers
can afford to hold cars for Ave or six days.
The new rate is diverting some of the corn
to the eastward, but the greater part of It
continues to go south to New Orleans,
Galveston and Port Arthur.
The first Information most of the brokers
and grain men In Omaha had of the rate
outbteak was January 17, when the papers
announced It. ' Chicago started an outcry
and the Interstate Commerce commission
Investigated the matter. It was then
stated a midnight tariff bad been put in
for certain Kansas City houses to move
1.400 cars of corn, the reduction being from
18 to 14 cents. Tha eastern rate from Chi
cago at that time was 15 cents, so that
nothing could be carried to the Atlantic
seaboard. The former rata to European
points via Baltimore and New Orleans wera

NEW JUVENILE COURT LAW
CommiUsei Ooifer on Its Provisions and
Determine oi Changes.
GOES AFTER PARENTAL DELINQUENTS
Home Influence to Be Made Respon
sible for Chlldrea anal Probation
Officers for Omaha to Be
The joint committee representing the Real
Estate Exchange, the Woman's club, the
Woman's Christian Temperance union and
the Douglas county bar association met
yesterday afternoon In the city hall and
agreed on certain additional provisions for
the juvenile criminal court bill which they
hope will become a law during this sesalon
of the legislature. II. W. Pencock will go
down to Lincoln Monday morning to confer
with Senator Mockett for the Incorporation
of the ideas of Judge Llndsey of the Denver
child's court in the N&braaka bill. The
Lincoln and the Omaha people are united
In wishing to obtain a aw along the lines
of Mr. Llndsey's suggestion, and senate
file No. 6 which was Introduced by Mr.
Mockett Is now found not to contain at
least two of these ideas.
The principal thing to be Insisted on In
the new bill will be the responsibility of
parents and other persons who may have
been found to have contributed In any way
to the dellnquence of children. The bill
will provide for such upon conviction a
fine of not more than $1,000 or Imprison
ment for not more than a year or both.
These penalties may be conditioned and
finally waived upon the promise of proper
conduct on the part of the parent or other
person. The first bill did not provide for
any dellnquence on the part of parents.
Pay for Probation Officers.
'The second most Important addition will
be a salary for the probation officer. The
first bill provided for services without com
pensation but the new one following the
suggestions of Judga Llndsey provides for
a salary of )1,200 with un allowance of
expenses up to tuOO annually. This is for
counties having a population of 100.000.
There te to be a probation officer and an
asslntant (one a woman) and the pay of
the asaiHtant will be left to tha dlacretlon
of the authorities.
The amendments Include a broader defi
nition of n delinquent or neglected child.
Under this head will come any child undtr
1 yours who Is dependant on the public
for support, lii homeless, destitute and
abandonrd, hus not proper parental caro.
who begs,' frequents houses of 111 fame
or who through reason of neglect, cruelty
or depravity la la aa unfit eortroament
for a child, such as would Justify the
state In assuming guardianship. Children
who smoke, drink, wander the streets at
night without an errand, frequent sa
loons, houses ot 111 fame and gambling
houses are considered to be without proper
care. Any child who violates any
state or municipal law, is Incorrigible, as
sociates with thieves and immoral per
sons, goes to Improper places, trespasses
on railroad property, habitually uses ob
scene language, or la guilty of Immoral
conduct in a public place or school house,
la also considered to be delinquent.
Sections Not Seeded.
It Is proposed to strike out sections 14,
18 and 18 as Irrelevant to the law, they
forbidding the Incorporation of charitable
Institutions which have not been approved
by the State Board of Charities and Cor
rections and forbidding out-of-state In
stitutions placing children in the state
without certain guarantee.
The Judges of the district court are given
original Jurisdiction and In their absence
the county judge. The provisions of the
bill are made mandatory.
GARY RELEASED FROM JAIL
Mental Coadltloa of Federal Prlsoaer
Sura as to Warant His
Alfred L. Gary, who recently pleaded
guilty to an Indictment charging "him with
appropriating the contents of a letter ad
dressed to a person of somewhat similar
name In this city, has been released from
Jail upon the recommendation of United
States District Attorney Baxter because of
his mental condition. Gary was found to
be considerably off his mental balance by a
physician appointed to examine into his
mental condition, and that he was not
morally responsible for the crime of which
he pleaded guilty. He has now been In
Jaihfour months, and the court officials are
of the opinion that be has been sufficiently
as amenable for counterfeiting aa If he
had mnde It out pf lead."
In the coin In question the words "E
I'nura" are made of letters of
slse. The milling Is poor and
the head of the Goddess of Liberty Is In
distinct. The word "America" outside of
the olive wreath appears flattened and
larger than the rest of the sentence,

HORSE GETS LONG END OF KICK
Animal Suffering from Colic Lands
oa Negro's Head and
While ministering to his sick horse Archie
Harvey, colored, living at 106 North Tenth
street, was kicked on the head by the ani
mal and severely Injured. In delivering the
kick the animal misjudged the distance,
slipped and broke a leg. When seen at his
room Harvey facetiously remarked he
thought the resistance of his head caused
the damage to the horse's limb, but Police
Surgeon Wlgton, who attended Harvey,
thinks otherwise. Harvey was found In an
unconscious condition on the floor of his
stable at 6:30 a. m. It was known he went
to the barn to attend his horse that had
been suffering with colic.
