PAST-CHRISTMAS RUSH IS ON
Baalmasa Is Basilar la the Retail
tores and Big Jobbing;
Omaha business men caught their breath
Sunday after the Christmas rush and went
down to business with minds full of the
necessity of taking Inventory and figuring
tip profits. It Is doubtful, however. It
many made a real start at this, for In re
tall stores snd shops there were crowds
equal in sise to those of Christmas week,
Wholesalers found their mall full of orders
and. rxcept among the grain men, there
was a general hum and bustle. Same con
dltkr.a prevailed Saturday.
In a retail way, the svason of big clear
ing sals is at hand, while wholesalers and
factories will be rushed to get out spring
orders, which ar already far ahead o
last year, according to declarations of
many jobber and manufacturers.
It Is plainly evident that the big sales of
r -fa- i
Cleanses, preserves and
beautifies the teeth, and
Purifies the breath

James Doyle, who was assisting In the
decorations of Chambers' dancing acad-
my. at Twenty-fifth and Famam streets.
for a dance Monday evening, took a drink
from a bottle marked "Pure Rye but
which in fact, contained some antiseptic
He drank the liquid at 11 o'clock Monday
morning, but a doctor was not called until
1:15, when Dr. Fltzglbbon was summoned
nd ordered Mr. Doyle removed to the
Omaha General hospital.
The colored porters around the dance
hall told Doyle that he had taken somo
poison, but he said he thought they were
"kidding'' him and paid no attention to It
until he became violently sick. He died at
3 o'clock at the Omaha General hospital.
Prof. Chambers, owner of Chambers'
Dancing academy, said that the contents
of the bottle which Doyle drank and which
killed him was an antiseptic solution which
Is used In the toilet room. He said the
solution was bought by him In 'bulk and
that the janitors then took out what they
wanted for use In whatever bottle was
handy, and that this bottle was one
marked "pure rye."
Doyle was working around town for
quite a while and was helping out at the
Chambers academy during tha holiday

ROADS FIGHT FOR RATES
Ask Permanent Injunction Ag-ainst
Cutting: Dry Goods Tariffs.
C0UBT NAMES SPECIAL EXAMINER
J. L. Bennett of Chicago Will Take
Evidence la This Case, I a voir,
lag Mlssoarl Valley
The Missouri valley rate case In which
the dry goods jobbers' of the Missouri val
ley are trying to force a reduction of the
rates between the Mississippi river and the
Missouri- river of through shipments Is
again In the limelight with the railroads
still fighting. ' The Interstate Commerce
commission has ordered a reduction, but
the railroads still fight.
The United States circuit court of ap
peals has appointed J. I Bennett of Chi
cago as special examiner to take evidence
In the case in which the railroads are ask
ing for a permanent Injunction against a
reduction In rates. These rates are now
suspended by a temporary Injunction.
The court has also allowed all the Job
bers who were a party In the orlginat suit
to intervene In the suit between the rail
roads and the commission, so that the lub
bers are now lined up with the Interstate
commerce commission and the commlukin
does not have to fight the railroads single-
John L. Webster haa been hamllinar tha
case for the Missouri valley jobbers and
showed to the satisfaction of the Interstate
Commerce commission that the rates were
entirely too high to Omaha, Kansas City
and St. Joseph In comparison with the
rates to St. Louis and St. Paul. It was
shown that tha Jobbers at St. Paul and St.
Louis bad an advantage over the Missouri
valley jobbers In the very terrttorv .i.
Jacent to these Missouri valley towns.
