Discrimination by Railroads.
"We are friendly to the Omaha market,
but I should say tho railroad are not
friendly to this market In that they have
persistently made a discrimination against
Omaha In the matter . of freight rates. It
btiM always been this way la Omaha.
"Because of railway discrimination all ter
ritory tributary to Omaha don not ahip
here. The g.-aln men urn. not in a position
to bring the grain to Omaha because of thi
mllroad discrimination. This la particularly
true, ftt - northern mut"Yuthro Nebraska
and of that territory along the Una of the
St. Joseph & Grand Island railroad and In
8-'uih Jmliola points. We have given up
any hope of being able, to receive or ship
fnim St. Joneph V Grand Inland points.
The switching; charges are .generally re
funded to the operators by the roads taking
the grain out. This in a universal rule
with the railroads, I believe. . . .
"I would like to ask that the eomnilwRlon

LONDON. Oct. 24. Ten women suffra

ptencta In the House of Commons were
arraigned in police court today and bound
over to keep the peace for six months.
Such a commonplace outcome of the affair
did not meet the views of the suffragists,
who apparently desired to assume the role

The shrieking women continued to make

until Mrs. Psnkhurst, who took a prom

April, was again arrested.
Borne of the women who had been tem

PARIS. Oct. 24. The Clemenceau cabi

gram, and the indications are that it will
be very broad and that possibly some sur
prises are in More. In well-informed cir
cles the Impression prevails that the plana

plete carrying out of the law providing for
the separation of church and state, legisla
tion establishing workmen pensions, the
state purchase of the western and some of
the southern railroads and the creation of a
state monopoly ot petroleum and alcohol.
The draft of the budget, as presented by
the budget commission under the Surrlen

President ' f National Association
Says Thera Is Daager of Too
Many Repressive Laws. ,
NEWARK. N. J.. Oct. M.-At todays
session of the National Liquor league's
convention President Hugh Dolan made his
report. He urged that the organization
strengthen Its means of defense. Ho said
lit this connection:
So much haa been accomplished by the
Antl-Sa-on league that it would seem
unnecessary to all attention to the great
danger that confronts us, but the fact re
mains that there are those engaged in the
business who appreciate the gravity of the
situation only when It Is too late to pre.
vent the passage of repressive laws.
Secretary Robert J. Halle submitted a re
port on the condition of the. liquor traffic
throughout the country and on legisla
tion affecting the traffic. He thought a
bill should be passed by congress pro
hibiting the issuance of government cer
tificates In instances where applicants had
not compiled with the state laws.

matters connected with his office In Can

position he found many things needed tor
his office and the State department, realis
ing the demands of Mr. Howe were Just,
asked him to come to Washington and pre
sent in person his requirements.. Church
Howe has made a distinguished success In
the consular positions which ho has held
and he is regarded by the State depart
ment aa one of the most efficient men in
the consular service. As election Is com
ing oo In Nebraska and as he has not had a
leave of absence for two years, Mr. Howe
has been granted sixty days' leave and he
begins his leave by taking up with the
State department matters In which our
country Is concerned with Montreal. He
expects to complete his work with the
State department In the next day or two
and then leave for his homo In Auburn.
Major Howe has nothing . but pleasant
words to say of the treatment he has re
ceived at the hands of the people of Mon
treal. He was especially distinguished the
other evening by the Board of Trade of
that city giving a banquet in his honor,
a courtesy never accorded an American
consul previous to Mr. Howe's appoint
ment. While Major Hwe was entirely
satisfied with his position tn Antwerp his
transfer to Montreal waa looked upon as
a promotion and as It brought him nearer
home he accepted the transfer with quiet
satisfaction. Major Howe believes the fu
ture of Canada is exceedingly bright and
he said tonight that if he were a young
man he would Join forces with tho men
who are building up the great empire to
the north of the United States.

ell In the special convention her today
accused the dissenters of an effort to dis
rupt the union.
The denouncement was precipitated when
Delegate T. C. Llewellyn t. Linton spok
of the top question. Llewellyn criticised
the decision of the national officers ot the j
miners' union In ths top coal quesiion and
by Inference declared that the national
officers. Including President Mitchell, were
not above suspicion. Ths words wero
hardly spokea when President Mitchell'
lnm n III Un I . . . .1 hum all. . '
was on his feot. He had been silting at
one ride of the hall as a spectator of the
events of the convention.
President Mitchell said that Llewellyn
had been the recipient Of credentials for
the Industrial Workers of the World and i
possessed them at this time. Mr. Mitchell j
said that Llewellyn was allied with the j
Western Federation of Miners, snd ss its .
ally was doing all In his power to break
the supremacy, of the united mine workers
In the Indiana field.
The denunciation of President Mitchell
eated s. sensation. When he finished he
was cheered to the echo.
Speaker Says Farmers Are Oaly Pro
ducers Who Do Not Fix Prices
oa Their Prodncts.
EAST ST, LOUIS. HI., Oct. 14 The fea
ture of today's session of ths first annuaV
convention of the American Society of
Equity, which la composed of fanners, wss
the address of M. F. ' Sharp of Narrows,
Ky. H strongly urged the farmers to
perfect an organization. ,
"The trusts and combines, which are th
agencies of the infernal regions, . call us
jays, hayseeds, rubes and mossbacks, and
I say that even If we-do organise, we won't
J stick," he said. "I tell you that when
organisation raises the prtce of products
I It l the lies stirkins i.lMjiter tn- tli. wnrlil
I know the .farmers will stick. Equity
means a fair deal. All manufacturing lu
duatriea fix the price ot their products
and know whst prtce thoy are going to get
for them. ' The farmer, the backbone of
the Vatiun and the world's greatest pro
ducer, has been going on the theory that
j he will taka whatever he can get for his
I products. Equity intends that the farmer
I shall take his place with the world's mo-
J ducers and fig a profitable price for his
products. That can. only be dope by a plan
of marketing products to control and regu-
late the market prices."
j Today's stsslon was devoted principally
to addresses along the line of forming an
jaaikulturtBts organisation to fix and maln-
tain prices on farm products.

made it looked like the defendant. As the

Around the tanbnrk ring society gathered
last night for the third time this week
and the evening was. If possible, more bril
liant than tho previous ones. Some new
faces were there, with most of the old,
and new comers and Horse Show habitues
seemed to enjoy themselves alike. It Is a
thing that grow on one, this pleasure of
the show, and each succeeding night and
each succeeding show seems mors charm
ing than the last.
The attendance was the best ao far this
season, the boxes and the seats of ths lower
floor being filled, as usual, while scarcely
a place in the balcony was left vacant.
For popular priced seats there was a gen
eral demand, aqch demand that if . a few
more people come tonight the "standing
room only" sign will of necessity lie hung
"at (he "'en trance. " . . - .'. ''
By far-he'' most, gfatlfylng rusdit. of the
three nights of the show was ths capture
by a Nebraska animal of the blue ribbon
In the homing class. The luclcy mare was
Gaiety Girl of Arbor lodge, Nebraska City,
and her proud owner Is Joseph Cudahy of
Omaha, who rode her. She won In com
petition with somo of the beet hunters of
th world, -among them Pearl,, the cham
pion jumper, owned by Weatherbes of New
Praise from Judavea.
The excellence; of the show, the good at
tendance and the evident Interest and en
thusiasm were frequently the subject of
private remark among the Judges. "You
have here," said one of them to a member
of the Horse Show association, "what I
call -a real Madison Square Garden show.
And that crowd of eager spectators there
tells me you have a real town, as fur ss
love of the tanbark Is ooncerned.", The
man to whom these remarks were ad
dressed, having seen the New York ex
hibition many times Itself, emphatically ex
pressed his sgreement.
It was Council Bluffs night and to say
that maoy citizens of that city were pres
ent would not be doing them justice. Many
Is an Indefinite term. A walk around the
promenade . and a glance here and there
st the boxes showed so many faces from
' across the river that no doubt was po-
slble It was Council Bluffs night. Mayor
across the river that no doubt was pos-
Oonald Macrae was among the many.
i KnthuMaam at tho how grows with the
i Wetk. Monday, while the spectator
showed the warmth of Interest along ty-
j warJ tn, ast yt.t . the early part cf the
evening many deserving entries wer given
a chilly reception, simply bemause the real
splr't of tho show had not been born. That
spirit Is now a lusty one. Last' night so-
Lciety lost no chance to applaud its favorite
whips whenever they appeared, and When
a new horse of merit mado its debut In tho
ring society was not slow to accord It th
recognition It deserved.
Woman was queen In the ring sn well as
In tho boxes. Tho right of a haiidsoma
woman managing a spirited animal la in
spiring, and the f nilnlne whips - always
brought an expression of the warmest en
thusiasm from boxes and balcony alike.
One Award I'apepular.
Only one. of tho musciillue drivers elicited
r,ulDI,, "ue lnu Plaudits th.! women
! brouint forth. That was the Irrepressible,
j Murray of Toronto who has a latge number
cf rlep and whose affable manner an.i
Inexhaustible, fund of good humor has cap-'
j ,urd the hearts of the Omaha ehow-gouig
' Public. H la always the unexpected that
i Murray does, and his sallies Intenselv
amuses. Ho never cares when the Jurtg
"call him down." Just smiles at ths lxes
and drives on with a characterlntio
shrug of his shoulders. Lust ulglit th
judges gave him the blue ribbon in the
heavy harness class to tho Junes team, an
unmatched pair, and the disapproval shown
