"The hearing of rival computing scale
manufacturers before Mayor D&hlmun
started at 11 o'clock Friday morning In his
office and at 12:30 an adjournment was
taken until the afternoon, - there having
been no actual demonstrations of the
weighing habits of aii;. scales up to that
The afternoon was taken up by Mr. Theo
bold In demonstrations ' and arguments to
show that the Dayton scale errs iri comput
ing fractions of a pound. The other side
will take Its case up Saturday morning and
It looks as though the hearing may laat
' The session Is the result of charges pre
ferrtd by the Toledo Cotnputlng Scale ooin
pany against types .of. .weighing .devices
manufactured by the Computing Scale coin
pany of rayton, U., and Is part of a
national fight between the two concerns
which has bora In progress several -years
with the Toledo people as aggressors.
Following the condemnation by John
Grant Prgg, local Inspector of weights and
, measures, , of several Dayton, or Money
weight scales. In a downtown butcher shop.
General Manager 'Henry Theobold of the
Toledo house sent a letter to Mayor
Pahlmsn. charging specifically that the
Tfeytontfnade apparatus was dishonest and
manufactured and sold with Intent to de
ceive the purchaser and rob him of a cent
or two ram- every ' purchase. Manager
E. WS Ray of the Dttyton company canto
to Omaha and endeavored to prove that his
scales were all right.- The mayor spent
, a day with him making the rounds of meat
- markets in h effort to satisfy himself of
the)' truth. Theobold offered to demonstrate
the. crookedness of the Dayton scale and
.'the toiayor decided to give him a chance
, to ie It.
Lawyers aaeV Aareats Preaeat.
, ' Both sides had lawyers and various rep
raseatailves present, besides the general
maaagers. Attorney T. J. Nolan handling
the Vagal end of the Toledo company's af
. fairs and Attorney' M. K Learned those of
the ether concern. At the outset Mr. Bay
' m4e ebargee against the Toledo scale to
the effect that it la set. to weigh from one
to three ounces .less than a pound, but. at
the request of Mayor Dahlman, declined to
put the chargea In writing.
Dayton scale, bearing the seal of the
city ot 106, waa produced and Manager
. Theobold talked for aa hour about the con-
teat brought against the scale, which he
' characterised as a thieving device. Besides
ctrealars issued by Its sellers to the effect
that It would save the retailer I cents nut
of every dollar Iq handling meat at cost

tion hook for agents together and then sep
arately and impressed upon the prospective

He said he expected a libel suit In Omaha
following those in other cities where he
had attacked the rival scale.
Msyor Dahlman assured both side they
would receive a fair deal and that which-,
ever waa proven wrong deserved to be
driven out of Omaha. If tho Dayton scales
were proven dishonest, he said he In
tended to do all in his power to accomplish
this end. They are extensively used here.
Manager Ray gave notice 'that he pro
posed to ask permission to demonstrate

It was pointed out that the computing
scale, which sells by value and not by
weight, is a comparatively new device and
that municipal and state laws generally do
not guard against it.
