These are fhe principal advances to af
fect Omaha, To offset them local Insurance
men say they expect an equalisation that
will reduce premiums on substantial seml
flre proof buildings and. what are known
as "flint class risks." No reduction Is
promised for residences or contents because
It Is alleged these are as low as can be
written. The union, which is the supreme
arblt.er of rates. Is still busy figuring on
advances ot decreases on certain classes to
be announced soon.
nesalt of Heavy Losses.
A prominent Omaha Insurance man, who
did not want his name used, said:
"The new rates are the result of analyses
of losses over the Western Union Juris
diction for the last five .veurs. It has been
found that In some classes the losses are
disproportionate to the rates charged and,
based on actual facts, should be advanced.
On the other hand other classes have been
found rated too high and to be bearing the
btirdons of the poorer risks. The Hayden
Bros, tire was a good example with a tre
mendous loss n the stock by water and
1100 worth of damage to the building.
Pncking houses have always been written
l a flg'iire that made them almost profit
less. V , "
,"We will not be able to tell In Omaha
whether the: readjustment means more or
less money to the people of Omaha. Un
spectors are now going over the buildings
and stock, blink by block, and as rapidly
as a. block Is finished the new rates will
be promulgated for It."
Eighteen states Affected.
The action taken by the Western Union
nffects eighteen states west of the Alle
gheny mountains and east of rb.e Rockies,
?xcept five lcrge cities that !iave ltfcal
ooards of fire underwriters. Omaha Is not
jne of them. j s
It la' said the advances Are calculated, to
.LL OVER BODY
cover expenses of operation rising from
40 per cent and yield a per cent
profit on the business done In each clsss.
Thirty-seven other classes are declared
to lie "unprofitable" at present rates. .and
a committee of the union Is now working
on these. One of these classes Is hotels,
restaurants and saloons, which are de
clared to bo especially bad risks. Saloons j
may be put In a class by themselves. Cheap
theaters are esld to have been very bad
proro-itlons from the Insurnnne view point.
The committer s still collecting data on
these and other classes.
Campaalea See the Money.
Chairman Oeorge W. I,iw of the West
ern Union Is quoted as saying the condi
tion of th companies that bore heavy
losses In the Ran Francisco fire made a
higher rate absolutely necessary If the
concerns were to be kept Intact. He also
said that it had been decided that bad
risks must be forced Into the profit-yielding

NO ICE FAMINE IN NEBRASKA
Threr-Foartha of Towns Are Amply
applied aad "care Storlea
About three-fourtha of the towns In the
state have enough Ice to last through the
Such a conclusion may be derived from
the recent investigation of A. M. Longwell,
Omaha manager for Booth & Co. Mr.
Ixingwell, Interested Irrf extending the fish
trade, wrote the agents of the express com
panies In 158- towns in Nebraska and east
ern Wyoming, asking them among other
questions whether or not the supply of ice
was sufficient for the summer. About
76 per cent answered in the affirmative,
the remaining 25 per cent in the negative.
"So you see," said Mr. Longwell, "the
dangers of Ice famine have been over
estimated. It would be useless for me to
say that Ice Is plentiful, or that It is not
higher priced than usual, but I do think
the state will get along very well. My ob
servations Indicate that prices are ex
orbitant only In towns where one company
has a cinch on the business. Of course the
scarcity makes this possible. In towns
where there la competition, prices are
higher than last year, but not unreason
able." Recently an Omaha paper published a
cock-and-bull atory on Its front page under
an Illuminated head about the Impending
ice famine In Omaha and when the man
ager of the ice company mentioned In the
story was asked about the facts, he smiled
and sAld: "That was a paid ad."
But so far as local commercial men know
the ice famine prices will not be abolished.

I procured another supply of the Cut

until the cure was complete. It is now
five years since the last attack, and

ave taken about three bottles of the
Cuticura Resolvent, and do not know
how much of the Soap or. Ointment, as
I always keep them with me; probably
one half doxen of each.- "
" I decided to give the Cuticura Rem

of their treatment ot ecsema on an
infant belonging to one of . our neigh

no good. So tbey procured the Cutioura

every day whom 1 do not usher. It
surely looked good to me to meet home

the home talent very much. Mr. Rose

the colonel while the family and party en.
Joyed the performance. They were all In
a great hurry and had to leave before the
performance was over, as Mr. Rosewater
was to meet William Jennlnss Brvan anrt
others. The party looked final and seemed
to D enjoying the continental tour, at

was waiting for her. as one of my friends,

case to compel the county clerk to put the

state convention on the ballot according
to the rotation scheme will render their
decision In the case at noon today. The
case was submitted after an all-day session
of court, at which eignt or ten lawyers
addresred the court.
The hearing was taken up Friday morning,
with a crowd ot auditors present to listen
to the oratory. - The forenoon session was
taken up with the arguments of John P.
Breen and W. J. Connell, and at th. con
clusion of Mr. Council's address an ad
journment was taken until after dinner.
H. C. Brom., Edgar Bcott. T. W. Black

of the belligerent Fontanelles were
present to assist John P. Breen
and W. -H. Herdman; who nominally

Mr. Breen made an amusing attempt at
reconciling his attitude now on this ques
tion and his attitude when city attorney,
they being diametrically opposite. lie said
he may not hav. known when he was city
attorney and advised against the system
he now urges for a fee.

In the afternoon H. C F.rome. John C.
Wharton, Edgar Soott. H. IC BaMrign and
T. W. Blackburn addressed the court and

Mr. Baldrlge called attention to the fact
that under the law no voter is allowed to

Mr. Breen opened the attack by quoting
rom several works to show that delegates
to conventions were really of more Im
portance than th. candidates they nomi

th. direct primary system. He contended
delegates to th. state convention were
officials within th. mesnlng of the primary
law and consequently their names should
be rotated under section I ot th. law,

W. J. Connell, who followed, contended
that th. last primary law did not stand
alone but should b. ronstrued in th. light
of th former law which was .till in
