two tiustees furnished men and teams to
the road superintendent with which to
work the roads of the town.-lilp. There Is
a. statute which forbids them from being t
interested in any s-uch contracts, though
the statute falls to define such a crime
and falls to tlx any penalty. The two
trustees were Indicted by the Dallas county
grand Jury and their ntlorneys demurred
to the indictment on the ground that as
the legislature railed to define tlie offense
und lix a penalty it was not indictable and
Was not a crime against the state. In the
district court the decision was In favor of
the trustees and the slat- appealed iu or
der to get a ruling of the supreme court
on tin points of law. The supreme couit
today holds that since there is n general
statute which provides that all undefined
offenses for which no penalty has been
provided shall be considered misdemeanors
and punlshuble by not more than a year's
imprisonment or a fine or or both,
that the offense Is a misdemeanor and Is
indictable. The two men having been
cleared once cannot be tiled again and the
effect of the decision of the court Is only
to establish the principle of law that the
offense In indictable and punlsrlahlc by not
to exceed a year In the county Jail or a

The aboxe Is a fair sample of posters on
the walls of many of the employme-.-.t
ngencies of Omaha. Corn husking will be
come general in Nebraska and Iowa next
week and the agencies have orders to send
j all the men they can get to harvest the
crop. Some Imsking Is being done this
we.-k and a nuinler of men have .ulready
been sent out.
"At the figures offered a man can make
t-.hO a day and board husking corn." said
H I,-.. r. trtr . . t ...... , . I. . . . I ...... ....
" ,,. yn one ill nil- eiTitno;,,ie ill
agencies, -'h.ven at that I am sure that
the farmers cannot secure enough men. If
there Is any bad weather this fall to delay
the harvest they will undoubtedly have to j
pay 4 cents a huvhel tiefore the husking
enson Is over.
'"Why, they are paying as high as t'.'f)
a day for common labor right here In the j
city and (here are hundreds of men who
w-ould not go Into the country nt woik
as hard as corn husking-'is, for the added
consideration of board."
"All labor Is scarce and wages are
higher," said one of these agents when
asked as to the labor condition this rail.
"We have every day and will continue to
have more calls for both male and female
labor than we can supply." he added.
According to this. man unskilled labor In
Omaha Is paid all the way from Jl.r1 to
per day. The man who shovels dirt,
beats carpets or does other similar work,
which requires no Intelligence whatever
gets 11.50 or $1.75. while the man who Is
handy with a hammer and iw and can
set up stoves or lay carpets, gets as high
Domestics Man at Premium.
Conditions are the same with regard (o
domestic labor, cooks and house girls bcim?
at a premium. General house girls are
Offered all the way from $3 to $t a week,
according to the ability and the size nf the
house they ore to servei Recause of the
big demand these girls are go Independent
they refuse to do washing. Ironing nnd
scrubhing. Cooks are offered all the way
from $3 to $ a week. The majority abso
lutely refuse lo do anything but cook.
That Amerlcan-tiorn irlrls will not do
housework ir they Can find anything else
to do Is the universal observation of the
employment agents.- Even though house
work nets the uneducated nnd unskilled
working girl more money than anything
else, she prefers to do some other kind of
work. There Is a good demand for girls In
the factories, parking houses, laundries
and restaurants at $1 a day or more, and
most girls prefer this to $7 or IS a week,
board and room, at housework.
So far as the naked eye can discern the
man who holds a "position" Instead of a
"Job" where the term "salary" Is' applied
fo the contents of his envelope Instead of
the term "wages." is not so extensively In
demand, nor Is he put to the irksome neces
sity of hlt-Jng a dray to haul home his
weekly or monthly stipend. This man on
whom It .Is Incumbent to make a-"showing-"
so far as dress and living -are concerned,
gets about the same as he used to lots at
work, with the same pay. All business men
agree that while it may not be quite as
dignified or. high-rounding, Ihe term
"wages" Is far more profitable these days
of piping peace and plenty than the word
"salary." - - - .
SEAL POACHING WAS PLANNED
Account at Victoria Refutes All Stories
of Japanese Sailors Regarding-
VICTORIA. B. C, Oct. 16. Clear evidence
is forthcoming by advices received today
by the steamer Empress of Japan that the
raid on St. Paul island by Ja p ines" sealers
was premeditated and the statement that
the Japanese landed for water and were
treacherously fired upon, by the Americans,
as reported to the Japanese government by
directors of the raiding schooner, Is shown
to be untrue.
Hunters of the raiding schooner, Toys
No. 2, which appeared off St. Paul Island
two days before the raid, went to the cap
tain with the ultimatum that unless he
permitted them to go ashore and club seals
they would refuse to work and comoel him
to return. The master agned. Further
discussion took; place as to the division of
the prosiHH-tive spoils and knlv wire
drawn. About midnight boats were lowered
with oar locks muffled and Fnt in, Ihe
vessel being but a mile rrom the rookery
In the fog. Four other boats followed and
In two hours lM seals had been slaughtered
and brought on board' the hi hnotier. Had
the sealers been satisfied they cunld have
escaped, but another raid was decided upon,
the boats going in the second time at 4
a. m. At o'clock the fog lifted and those
on board the schooner sighted the guard
Warning vhots were fired, but the raider
were too busy skinning s.i1h io notice, and
only when the guards came close did they
sight the natives. Then they succeeded In
ire.tt:ng only one boat out. In which four
men sought to get to the vessel. Ope,
Meada, a seaman, was shot through tho
breast and two others were wounded, ''"ho
body of the dead man was taken in salt lo
Japan and landed without the knowledge
of the authorities.
