ON RECORD AGAINST THE PARCELS POST
Thlrtr-FIre Firms la WhoUult
urwerr Trd Represented at
Mertlu Held la the
Thlrty-flve firma holdlna; membership In
the- Iowa and Nebraska Wholesale Grocers'
association, were represented at the called
meeting -held yesterday In this city at the
Grand hotel. The wholesalers are a close
corporation and as usual the meeting- was
held behind closed doors and little of what
'transpired was made public. "Business In
which the Jobbers are mutually Interested,"
It was stated, demanded the attention of
the association, hence the -meeting. f
Among; the questions of "mutual Inter
est" discussed was that of the recent order
of the fourth assistant postmaster general
requiring ,that all mall boxes on rural free
delivery routes be numbered.: The con
sensu of opinion was that the numbering
of ' tfrk boxes would, a (Tort the catalogue
houses' undue . advantage's, and would re
sult In the rural routes being flooded with
the ; circulars and catalogues of such
homes. The opportunity thus afforded the
catalogue bouses to circulate their price
lists would, It was contended, militate
against the retailer and In turn the Jobber.
It-fcas stated that the order had. for the
present been ' suspended .pending Investi
gation ' and Secretary- Melhop . was In-
stracted to file In the name of the asso
ciation, a protest; against Its enforcement.
In . connection ..with the .mall order and
catalogue houses - the . association adopted
the following resolution:
Recognizing that there Is a mutuality of
Interest 1 between the manufacturers, .Job
bers and retailers. and that tneir co
operation Is nweasary in order- to Insure
':the tHTpetnatien1 of the present established
system of -trad? distribution, we endorse
conditions that ori business opportunities
for the greatest number of Individuals, and
distribute trariii'' over the widest ponslble
area, thus avl$lrt centralisation of trade
and Its attendants Of evil.
' We believe that-the future prosperity of
farm and factory Is best swrved by en
couraging this policy and shaping of our
united efforts, to this end.
'- " Opposes Parcels Post.
. The a30clatlon declared Itself opposed to
the proposed parcels post and denned Its
position In fhls matter In the following
We believe a parcels post system Is not
demanded by a sufficient number of clllsens
to render It advisable for the government
ti Incorporate It In the postal service.
We believe It would be Impracticably and
enormously expnlve. We therefore recom
mend that this association use Its Influence
to prevent the inauguration, of any such
measure . . ,
That l-cent letter postage meets with the
approval of the association la shown by the
following resolution adopted :
We 'recommend that the various trade
bodies and commercial organisations
throughout the ' country make strenuous
efforts to Induce congress to enact a law
providing for 1-cent letter postage.
From unofficial sourbee It waa stated that
the decline In the price ol sugar ana me
condition of the baking powder, trade were
among the subjects discussed. .

FIFTH WARD REPUBLICANS
Cluh Holds a Rousing Meeting to
l.lstea to Kennedy and
Enthusiasm was rampant last evening
at Toung's hall, Sixteenth and Corby
streeta. where the Fifth Ward Republican
club held a rousing meeting. Congr-nsman
John L. Kennedy and Gurdon W. Wattles
were the principal speakers of the even
ing, while various republican candidates
addressed the voters. W. B. Christie, pres
ident Of the club, was In the chair. The
hall was filled to overflowing, quite a num
ber from other clubs being present. Mr.
Christie evoked a storm of applause when
he said between speeches: "One of the
grandest things In the. world Is to be a
republican, and the grandest party In the
world Is the republican party."
Congressman Kennedy was In a particu
larly happy vein last evening. "Principles
that are correct never die; that Is why
the republican party lives and grows.
Where are the democratlo speakers who
will atand up for the principles of that
party?" asked Mr. Kennedy. The speaker
eulogised the president and referred to the
direct primary law. It Is Congressman
Kennedy's opinion that the new law will
have the effect of wiping out party faction
alism. "I cannot recall In my twenty-three
years' residence In Omaha that the repub
lican party has presented a stronger ticket
to the voters than the one offered this
fall," said Mr. Kennedy. Then he went
down the ticket from first to last and
strengthened his statement with evidence.
In his opening remarks Mr. Wattles ex
plained that he Is not In quest of public
office, but rather the good opinion of his
fellow citizens. "It Is the duty of every
clttsen to try to better the conditions' of
his fellow men. I could not be other than
a republican. " Republicans are optimists,
while democrats are pessimists. It was
only a few mornings ago that I rode down
town on a street car and was talking to
a democrat. I remarked to him that it
was a fine day. He admitted It was, but
thought It would rain the next day and
looked for hard times 1 few years hence,
which Is Just like the democrats always
looking on the dark side of things. Re
publicans have been doing things end have
always pushed ahead. I have looked Into
the character of the men nominated this
fall on the republican ticket and can say
the ticket Is dhe all republicans should feel
proud of. It Is a ticket deserving the sup
port of the rank and file of all voters."
Quite a number of candidates made short
talks. The next meeting of the club will
be next Wednesday evening.
