Howard Corner Sixteenth Street
George Thomas, a New York freight broker,
on - the charge of, conspiracy -uln rebating
railroad rates. The Omaha Jobbers are said
to have received rebates from the Burling
ton road through Thomas.
F. P. Kirkendall, the Omaha wholesale
shoe manufacturer, was on the witness
stsnd Wednesday, the substance of his
testimony being thst he had paid Thomaa
$500 a year to look after his freight ship
ments, and that several times he had re
ceived money from Thomas. He returned
to Omaha Thursday morning.
"I waa lucky in getting away after one
day," said Mr. Kirkendall. They knew I
would not be of much value, since all the
contracts I had with Thomas have been de
stroyed, and no record was kept of any
transactlona with him. For that reason
they allowed me to go on the stand early
and get away.
"I employed Thomaa for three or four
yeara to handle my freight business because
he was a freight expert and could save
money for me by his knowledge of railroad
affairs. Several time he gave me money,
but I do not know where It came from.
"It Is my opinion that no case can be
made out against the Jobbers. Thomas
handled the business of all of them to the
best advantage, and if the money he gave
back to them was In the nature of rebates
from the railroads, they do not know it.
Whether It was remains for the court to-
flnd out from Thomas and the railroads,
and whatever trrelr finding may be, I do
not anticipate that the jobbers can be held
responsible. ' '
"If 1 want a man In any line of business
I naturally seek a man who know the
business, and I have a light to hire the one
who I think can make me the most money.
Her la a man with an Intimate knowledge
of freight traffic who comes and promises
for a certain consideration to ao place my
freight that he will save me money on ship
ments. Haven't I a right to engage him
just as I would a specialist In any other

tillers generally wooifl tske advantage of
the opportunity to manufacture denatured
alcohol as provided for by the bill.
Senator Hale aareed with other senators
that there Is liable to 'be ' disappointment
over the effect of the. bill, but expressed
