to say that they are members of a coal

had in any way secreted their records is
denied by th local secretary. J. A. Hall

representative for the express purpose of
misleading him. He said the books were
lying before him at the very time. He
said he waa ready to produce them when
ever they should be demanded by the
proper authorities. He said th objects of
the exchange did not contemplate or per
mit of a dictation of prices which should
b charged aad thus destroy competition.
They did aim. however, to make better
terms where possible with railroads In th
matter of switching and other accommo
dations. They took up the question - of

Louis Burdorf, hostler for the J. S. Cooper
company at the Union stock yards, was
seriously kicked yesterday by a mule. The
hoof of the animal struck him on the side
of the Jaw and caused- a- fracture of the
Jaw bone and possibly a fracture at the
base of the brain. He waa carried to th
South Omaha hospital In an unconscious
condition, where his wound was dressed.
He partially revived under the reduction
of the fracture and kicked so on the operat,
Ing table that the combined force of the
hospital waa needed to keep him from
throwing himself to the floor. The fracture
was wired temporarily, but a later opera
tion will likely be necessary. Since the
operation he haa remained In a semi-conscious
state. Unless there is a fracture at
the baae of the brntn the fractured ' Jaw
wilt not be fatal. Burdorf resldea at Oil

City Attorney H. B. Fleharty atated last
night that since Injunction appeared to be
the only way to accomplish anything In
South Omaha, he brfd a mind to try his
hand at It a little for the public beaeitt.
Th cause of his remarks Is the reported
Invasion of the city by : the -Interurban
railroad. It is said that th Interurbaa
has begun grading within the city limits
at Forty-fourth In the vicinity of T street.
It has no franchise at .present- The or
dinance submitted last winter was never
passed. It was the proposal of the Inter
urban company- The promoter agreed te
remodel the ordinance to meet the desires
of the council, but they have neglected to
return the ordinance. The main objection
to the nrst ordinance was the fact that
the Interurban did not, in the Judgment
of the councilman, accommodate the busi
ness section of tha city and they wished
the road to come farther, to ward the ecu
ter before granting the franchise.

; WOMAI W CLUB AND CHARITT '
Th Omaha Woman's club held its first
meeting of the fall Monday afternoon and
the -lecture room of the First Congrega
tional church was filled with club women
enthusiastic over the prospects of the year.
Although the - meeting did not convene
until 2:39 o'clock, the room was comfortably
filled a half hour before opening time and
bussed with recitals of the summer and
discussion of plans for the: winter.
Mrs.' Draper Smith, first vice president
of the club, presided- in the absence of

proposed, to be acted upon in four weeks.
The committee' on place of meeting post

haa long been an objection to the present
quarters and the club will make an effort

several weeks to give - time for Insertion
of names of new members that will come
In this month. Printed slips announcing
the departments and their time of meet

of the club. A proposition to reinstate old
members upon the payment of the year's
