PROPOSAL TO RAISE RATES (Continued from First Page.) ket of the vuut numbers of cattle, hogs and sheep that our farmers turn of every year; and they mean ready money In substantial amounts for every load that Is sent to local markets or to terminal points, from whence, they are scattered throughout the land." Labor Commission Report. Labor Commissioner Ryder has Just fin ished writing the biennial report of his department, which he will endeavor to have In printed form for the legislature when it meots. He recommends a reorganization of the bureau, so that it wll have, besides the deputy, two factory Inspectors, who will also gather Industrial statistics, a statistician and a stenographer, who will also be librarian and mailing clerk; the bureau haa a somewhat extennslve library of books that Mr. Ryder believes can be made useful where It Is now useless, ex cept for merely office reference. "These new positions. If created," said Mr. Ryder, "will biing th. whole expense of the bureau up to 20,uu0 for two years. This Is a very modest amount, w'lien it Is kept In mind that w. are conducting what In other states surrounding us Is two separata departments of state government alabor bureau and an agricultural statis tics bureau. Because of existing conditions, the latter has been given moat serious at tention, and Is now In very serviceable condition. With two competent factory In spectors, a man and a woman, the deputy commissioner would be enabled to make a much needed showing of purely Industrial development, with an enlightening presen tation of statistics concerning workshop:, and factories, wages, sanitary conditions, safety apllances and kindred matters. These two Inspectors could also give at tention to enforcement of the fire escape law, the child labor law and the law gov erning employment of women and girls. Thus the deputy would be at liberty to give close attention to the whole field of effort covered by the many laws entrusted to the bureau for execution and the statisti cian and librarian could handle in good shape the growing work In the office." Pare Food Prosecutions. County Attorney J. P. Baldwin of Hebron has notified the food commissioners office tha.t Cramer liros. of Chester, against whom pnsecution waa brought for selling misbranded and short weight oornmiaJ puckdges have pleaded guilty and paid a fine. In this case Inspector Vogel reported that the cornmeal sacks found at the sio.e of Cramer Bros., had been put up by J. H. Fair of Hardy, Neb., that they were marked to contain nine and one-half pounds, but that they really contained nine and three-four. h ounces less than that. This shortage in weight which is 6 per cent, would amount to 1,800 pounds on a ai'.OOO-pound car lot shipment. This 1,8 OJ pounds shortage at the price paid by tho consumer would amount in monej to $40.50, or a p ollt thiough the short weight trick for somebody, either the miller or the lotal cea.er or perhaps both, a profit by short weight for meal that is paid for by the consumer but never delivered, a profit of v.M per car load. Among a number of other cases being prosecuted In Thayer county for short weight, mill stuffs Is a case of graham flour In small sacks maxked, to contain ten ro.imla per sack, but nine and one-half ouni.es short. This shortage would amount to a short weight cheat against the con sumer of Vii a car, computing the car load at 30,000 pounds and the retail price per small sack at 35 cents. iWthln the last two or three days the deputy food commissioner haa ccrtif.ed to county attorneys for prosecution the fol lowing cases: J. W. Heott. Broken Bow, short weight lorninral packages. J. H. Ivale, Broken Bow, misbranded "Hed Cross Puiiake Flour," "Red Cross V heat Flakes." Siieppard ic Burk.
