"We are coming tot realise," she say,

The proposition for the establishment of a
headquarters of the railway mail service in
Omaha continues to Impress Itself on the
minds of Omaha men a one that carries
only good for the city, state and tributary
territory, and one that can be adopted with
most excellent results to the general gov
ernment and the particular service of rail
Speaking of the proposition, ex-Congress
man J. I Kennedy said:
"This Is the most sensible move which 1
have heard proposed and those responslbra
for It are certainly to be commended.
"For year th I'ostofflce department has
been bound by so much red tape that It
would be Impossible to get the department
Itself to start such a movement. The de
partment does not and will not recognize
the growth rnd development In the west.
As a bureau it goes on doing things Just
as It did twenty years afeo, when, X under
stand, the last adjustment of th railway
mail service divisions was made.
'We are still running a buckboard be
tween Omaha and Benson because the gov
ernment department does not know and
don't want to know the necessity for im
provement. The pressure must be brought
to bear on the outside and I know the mail
service needs readjustment. The business
of the Chicago office is enormous. It
would almOBt be a division of Itself."
Bee Hit nll on Head.
Commenting on the result of the Investiga
tion published In The Bee of Tuesday, F. K
Kellar, chief clerk of the railway mall
service at Omaha, said:
"1 think The Bee told the truth. Th
facts as stated are correct a to the mile
age and number of clerks In the big Sixth
district. It is very large and the talk of
making a new division seems sensible."
Mr. Kellar said that at present his office
has the direct supervision of 230 mall clerks.
The office has charge of clerks on the
Union Pacific as far as Cheyenne, all the
lines of the Northwestern west of the Mis
souri river, the Missouri Paclflo line- by
way of Weeping Water, the Rock Island
lines Into Kansas, while the clerks on the
Burlington are under the chief clerk at
Lincoln. The Omaha office recently took
over the work of the Sioux City office on
the Black Hills line of the Northwestern,
relieving that office of the work of caring
for some twenty-seven clerks. The present
operation of the chief clerk's office In
Omaha shows plainly that Omaha Is the
logical point for headquarters of a new
Senator Millard Is for It.
"Omaha should have been the headquar
ters for a division of the railroad mall
service many years ago." aa'.d ex-Senator
J. H. Millard. "My only wonder is that
the department has farmed out so much
of the territory which should be handled
from Omaha and given It to another city.
"Not enough Importance Is given to the
fact that the federal bulldlne; at Omaha,
which was erected by the expenditure of
a great Sum of niones-, has ample room
for the headquarters of a postal division.
This should be an argument which would
Carry much weight with the department In
selecting a city in which the headquarters
for the district west of the Missouri should
be located. The vacant space In the fed
eral building, all ready for occupancy.
When brought to the attention of the de
partment and congress, should overbalance
claims of any other eity, regardless of the
fact that Omaha Is the logical point from
which to handle the mail business on the
"I am for the dividing of the 'big sixth
district,' with the understanding that the
headquarters shall be located at Omaha,
and I am hoping that western senators
and representatives will succeed in the ef
fort to do so at the present session of congress."
That onr American forests ahonn4 fn

medicinal virtues Is abundantly attested
by scores 'of the most eminent medical

SMALLEST CRIMINAL DOCKET
I. cast am Iter of Cases Ever Mated for
Trial In Dosclsa Connty
The Douglas county criminal docket Is
the lightest it ha been for years accord
ing to figures compiled by Gnorge Seay
of the district clerk's office. The docket
now contalna but seventy-three cases, and
twenty-eight of theee are appeala from the
police court, leaving only forty-five state
It is believed this Is the smallest crim
inal docket this county has had In ten
years. It is not unusual for the clerk to
transfer S00 cases In making up the crlm-
. - ,14 oi court, one
reason ror the decrease Is the policy in-
augurated by City Prosecutor Daniel of
calling to trial or forfeiting bonds of
persons who appeal their cases from police
court to tne district court. Heretofore th
docket ha been encumbered with scores
of appenl rases that were outlawed but
never wiped from the docket. The county
attorney nas also dismissed a number of
case in which there wa lack of evidence
sufficient to convict.

City man said. 'If St. Louis gets the fourteen-foot
waterway from the lakes and
we fall at that time to have the Missouri
river navigable and navigated from Kansas
City to St. Louis, St. Louis will put Kansas
City out of business In the whole south
and southwest.' Now. If the river Is navi
gated to Kansas City and not to Omaha
at that time, where la Omaha commercially
as compared with Kansas CltyT"
This was the question which B. J. Mc
Vann, secretary of the Omaha Oraln ex
change, put to the real estate dealers of
Omaha and their guests at the "Missouri
river navigation rally" held Wednesday
noon, when Ihe real estate men met to
complete arrangements for the trip to Sioux
City next Wednesday, where they will at
tend the first annual convention of the
Missouri River Navigation congress.
Mr. McVann displayed a map of the
central United States showing the great
waterways. He said: "If Chicago had a
proposition before congress to build at gov
ernment expense a four track railroad from
Lake Michigan to the Gulf of Mexico,
maintain It In good repair at government
expense and allow anyone to run cars
over It who would furnish the cars and
motive power free of cost, how long
would Omaha keep still?
"Then what if Kanff City wanted to
build a double track railroad at the ex
pense of the government, connectlngwlth
the four track line from Chicago?
Conld Not Last lx Months.
"Omaha could not be a marKet city six
months with such competition. All the
grain of the Vest would be funmMed
through Kansas City, and all the merchan
dise for the country west of the Missouri
river, or a large proportion of It, would
come through or from Kansas City.
"The water rate regulates the land rate.
When the rate on wheat from Pt. louls
to New Orleans by river was 30.6 cents per
bushel, it whs 70.2 cents per bushel by rail
from St. Louis to New York. When the
river rate fell from 30.6 cents to 4.25 cents
per bushel to New Orleans, the rate by
rail to New York followed It down from
70.2 cents to 11.6 per bushel."
Mr. McVann quoted from many high
authorities on river transportation, among
them the St. Louis and Kansas City men
who have made a study of the effect whfch
river transportation would have on railroad
rates. One authority quoted said. "These
river rates also affect the rail rates erst
and west as well as north and south. Take
grain, for Instance, from the Missouri river
trade center, Kansas City to New Tork:
The rate.jjiat would npply on such traffic
would have to approximate the rates from
Kansas City to St. Iouls plus the low

river has been controlled as we have been
controlled, and as our state legislatures
have been controlled, by the great cor
