away with the payment of elevation
charge. The Missouri Paciflo announced
late yesterday that It would make the aame
cut of 14 centa, effective July 8, on all
grain and grain producta originating went
of Omaha and going aouth and south
east. The battle la waxing warm. On
Monday, the Burlington announced the
grain rate from Nebraska polnta to
Omaha would be reduced 14 centa as long
aa the Union Paciflo continued to pay ele
vation. At the aame time the payment of
elevation waa announced as discontinued
and the rate from the Missouri river to
the Mississippi and Chicago was reduced
the same ' amount.

that road Is going to take a further hand

one -thing to do If .the Burlington lowered
the rate and that waa to meet the cut.

Lincoln Displays Nerve.
A protracted meeting of the freight offl
clula of the Burlington, Rock Island and
Mlaaouri Pacific waa held In Omaha Tues
day to take up the question of Lincoln
' rates The Commercial club of Lincoln
hae been pounding the railroad officials on
the back to get them to put Lincoln on
the same basis as Omaha. Nothing definite
was decided upon.
"That proposition Is almost-- too foolish
to consider," said one railroad man," for
If Lincoln was put on the same basis as
Omaha, why not Beatrice and Hastings
and Kearney? Where would you atop?"
Another railroad man said:
"That would be the worst thing which
could happen to Omaha, for much of the
freight from the south cornea through Lin
coln. If Lincoln was put on the same
baais aa Omaha and eome legislature
should opme along and put in the mileage
basis that la In effect In Iowa, the Omaha
merchants might . as well close up shop
and move to Lincoln. The river Is the
proper basing point and towns inland
should not expect ' to get on Vh same
basis as the river cities."

That something will have In be done to
Induce the railroads to- inaugurate better
freight service between Omaha and the
towns of southwestern Nebraska waa the
decision reached by the transportation com
mittee of the Commercial club at lis meet

the recent trade excursion, on which the
jobbers were made to realize more thin

gives Ft. Joseph and Kansas City. The

NEBRASKA CROPS EXCELLENT
C'ondltloas Along the Burlington Are
Promising; of the Beat
The Burlington crop and soil report for
'he Nebraska district for the week end
ing June 30 shows the orops.of the state
to be .in excellent condition. The Lin
coln and Wymore dlvlaiona were vlalted
by aeveral good rains during the week
and the aoll Is everywhere In excellent
condition. -Soine rain fell on the McCook
division, but more Is nee.-'d. The re
Winter wheat Is being harvested on the
Lincoln division and Is everywhere a good
yield. It Is a little early to estimate the
yield per acre, but It la claimed to be up
to or In excess of the crop of 1U05. On
the Wymore division the winter wheat
harvest is progressing rapidly and a good
yield Is reported In evtry locality. In
some places the straw Is somewhat short,
but the heads are well Ailed. Harvesting
has commenced on the McCook dlvlBlon,
but the crop Is not In as good condition
In all places as on the two eastern di
visions on account of lack of moisture.
Corn In all parts of the district is in
excellent condition. The fields are clear
of weeds, and on the two eastern divisions
the rains and warm weather of the past
week have been very helpful. On the
McCook division, while corn Is not yet
suffering for moisture, a good rain would
be very beneficial.
The recent ruins have been a material
help to the oats crop, especially on the
northern part of the Wymore and on the
Lincoln divisions.' The straw is short,
but the heads are filling much better than
waa anticipated, and in -the localTtiea
above mentioned a half crop Is now x
peoted. Oats are nat -extensively .raiaed
on the McCook division, but about a half
crop la expected where grown. Other
siring grains In the district -will not
amount to much.
Potatoes are in good condition. On the
Lincoln division the early-planted ' pota
toes are ready for market ,and are of
Pastures on the Lincoln and Wymore
divisions are In good condition. Pastures
on the McCook division, while not yet
avfferlng for moisture, would be greatly
benefited by a good rain. The second
ciop of alfalfa Is everywhere In excellent
Sugar beets on. the Imperial line are
in good condition; also In the irrigation
district on the west end of the McCook
division. On other parts of the division,
where irrigation U not resorted io, th
sugar beet crop is not In good condition,
owing to lack of moisture. Prospects for
fruit continue good.

Young Woneen's Christian Association
OMAHA, July 3. -To the Editor of
The Bee: Permit me, through the
columns of your valuable paper, to call at
tention to some features of our local
Young Women's Christian association In
comparison with the work In other cities.
The annual statistical report of the asso
ciations of the United States has Just been
received and we aro pleased to note that in
point of membership our association Is
fourth. Loa Angeles la first, then Detroit,
Harlem and Omaha, The attendance In
the lunch room Is also fourth. Loa An
geles leads, then Detroit, Minneapolis and
Omaha. Nineteen associations have larger
educational departments and fully one-half
of the associations of the country have
larger gymnasium enrollment. Our relig
ious department Is fair, Bible study enroll
ment la eighth and attendance at religious
meetings tenth. Our classes In dressmak
ing and millinery are small. We have no
room In our present quarters to ac imrho
date such classes. We have no -school of
domestic science, very inadequate toilet and
rest accommodations; not sufficient office
room to make possible good employment
bureau and boarding house directory; no
publlo baths. The public may be Interested
to know that the Minneapolis aaaociatlon
gave 8,000 baths last year at 6 cents each.
We believe that public baths ior women
are one of the great needs of our city.
Socially the Omaha association ranks
among the first. The number of social oc-.
caslons and attendance Is large and the in
terest on the part of our members Is very
unusual. We are proud of the record made
by our girls in raising $26,000 toward our
It will be seen by these comparisons that
the Omaha Young Women's Christian as
sociation is really one of the largest in the
country, but' that It Is .not a symmetrical
work. - It haaf seme very decldadr weak
nesses; One of the greatest needs bf our
city la a school- of domestlo science, where
our young women may study all the essen
tials of good housekeeping cooking, buying,
sewing, laundry work and household econ
omy In all of Its phases. The Young
Women'a Christian association has planned
to have one entire floor of the new build
ing given to this department, also a model
laundry In the basement, where a proper
method of washing and Ironing may be
taught. Considerable space will be given to
publlo baths and lavatories, large and airy
rest rooms, wltk plenty of couches, will be
provided; also a room where tired mothers
may take their babies to rest a while, a
good gymnasium with proper showers, lock
ers, etc. The association hopes to meet all
the needs of women that are so apparent In
a city where there are 10,000 wage-earning
The need of a dye-story building for oar
work has been questioned by some of our
citizens who are not Informed Of the scope
of the wok. Statistics show our weak
nesses are on account of not having room
and equipment for all departments. One of
our national secretaries said she had never
seen space so well utilized, and yet we
have not a fourth of the room needed In
order to have the well-rounded organiza
tion for women, such as they have In De
troit and Harlem and Minneapolis and
other cities where .they have their own
buildings and everything suited to the
needs of so great a work. W are justly
proud of the results of our finance cam
paign last April and believe that If the
San Francisco disaster had not happened,
when we felt obliged to retire from the
field, we would now be In possession of the
necessary 125,O0O for our building and
equipment. As it Is we are happy In the
possession of pledges amounting to S2,0O0
and believe that the $43,000 still to be
raised will be forthcoming In the very near
future. Perhaps some good friend, or
friends, wilt send In gifts especially for our
school of domestic science or other depart
The association Is grateful lo the gen
erous public for the munificent gifts that
have made the building possible, and we
hope to dedicate the building free of debt
some great day not very far distant.
EMMA F. BYERS, General Secretary.
TWO ROUTES F0R TRADE TOUR
Black Illlla Territory with Western
Nebraska anal Seatheaat Una
with Northeast Missouri
The cholre of route for another trade ex
cursion will be left to a vote of the mem
bership of th Commercial club. Two
routes are suggested by the trade exten
sion committee, one through Black Hills
territory and In Nebraska west of Valen
tine and the other through southwestern
Iowa and northweatern Missouri. A circu
lar letter has been mailed to members of
the club asking fur their vote.
Soma members of the trade extension
committer are anxious to take the Clack
Hills trip. That section of the country is
and always has been regarded aa Oniaha a
territory, and there has been little to fear
from the Inroads of merchants of other
cities. Now that the Milwaukee Is build
lng a line into Rapid City It Is necessary
for Omaha merchants to get busy In order
to keep Sc. Paul and Minneapolis from
getting the business.
It is also Important that southwestern
Iowa receive some attention, for the mer
chants have not vlalied that part of- the
country lately and they feel the necessity
of making aa strong efforts as Kansas City
and St. Joseph to keep In the good grace
of the retailera.
No date haa been set for the excursion.
It probably will be in the latter part of

Preceded several hours by the splilt of the
day, the "Fourth of 1908" arrived last night,
lights burning, rockets flying, crackers and
torpedoes booming and balloons floating to
herald Its appearance. The reception given
by the people of Omaha waa all any day
could have desired. While it was not more
noisy and auspicious than other Fourths
have received. It was noteworthy In that no
Incidental casualties or serious accidents
Temporary street stands and other places
selling fireworks did a thriving business all
day and with the setting of the sun the
continuous roar of a grand salute to the
approaching anniversary day began In all
parts of the city. Noise-producing para
J phernalla of all sorts were put into use, but
the efforts of the police to suppress the use
of revolvers, large torpedoes and large fire
crackers made theae dangerous articles
hard to And.
The habit of. placing torpedoes on the
street car tracks Is particularly tabooed
this year, but although this waa given wide
publicity through the presa, there were
some who, through Ignorance or malicious
ness; paid no heed to the warning and as
a result many found themselves under ar
rest. Most of them were released on bond
to appear In police "court this morning-,1 but
all Were haodled "without gloves" by the
police, ai they believed Sufficient warning
was given as to the practice.
Persons who do hot wish to take a ride
In the patrol wagnrt today will do well to
remember that torpedoes are not to be
placed on street car tracks; that revolvers
must not bo used, even with blanks, and
that any explosive apt to be considered
too dangerous or too great a nuisance must
be let alone. No shooting should be done
In the vicinity of hospitals or houses con
taining sick persons. Policemen were placed
near some of the hospitals last night and
will be kept there today.
Amusements of the Day.
A card of sports and plher amusements
has been prepared and all the parks and re
sorts will be open. The program runs some
thing like this:
