Into razor-edge creases, and regulation pa
rade smiles qn their faces, 100 officers and
men of the police department, under Chief

inspection Thursday1 afternoon.
Mayor Dahlman, and W. F. Wappich, W.
J. Hunter and Charles Karbach of the
Board of Fire and Police Commissioners,
reviewed tha men in front of the police
station at Eleventh and Dodge streets.
Aside from a few insignificant hitches,
tha maneuvers went off with precision. A
small, but decidedly active, colored boy al

camera just as he was snapping a bunch
of smiles on the faces of the men In lno;

Mayor Dahlman complimented the of
ficers and men for their drilling and on
the condition of the Jail building, police dis
pensary, auto patrol, motorcycles, patrol
wagon and horses, all of w.hlch were In
spected. He also praised the officers for
the creditable stand they had taken In le
gard to the aalary increase question.
"The legislature," he said, "waa highly
considerate of your value to tha com
munity, and so raised your salaries. But
It failed to attend to the most Important
thing, the 'appropriation which had to be
Increased to meet the salary increases. Tou
deserve great credit for agreeing to aerve
the city at the old scale of pay when by
law more Is due you."
Commissioners Wappich and Hunter and
Chief Donahue also made brief speeches to
the men. The officers of the department
who participated In the review and Inspec

Zuelow of Schuyler Tells Omaha How
His City Seals with Always
Mayor Otto Zuelow of Schuyler thinks
h has solved the tramp problem, which
In cities of Schuyler's slz Is a serious
His solution Is simple and may be spoiled
with Just four letters W-O-K-K.
"When a tramp comes along he Is taken
before our magistrate, fined $10 and as
sessed the costs, which amount to $4.50."
says Mayor Zuelow, who spent Thursday
In Omaha, "and then he Is permitted to
work out this fine at $1.60 a day. The
method has proved very successful and
Schuyler has one tramp today where It
had ten when I went Into office."
But the mayor Is a diligent man. He is
not content to leave the details of his
scheme entirely to others. He U also a
studious man. He goes Into the situation
personally, he studies the tramps, their
characteristics, tricks and turns, and gives
the closest attention to the application of
his principle. And he is 'learning a whole
lot about human nature, and tramp nature
In particular that he didn't know before
The other day," sal.1 the mayor, "one
traniD fainted right before my eyes. He
Just shut his eyes and keeled over. I
called the doctor. 'Take this man out,' I
told him, 'he's a sick man. Give him some
medicine and then give, him something- to
eat and let me know how much he eata.'
"I a-ot hold of the man. I told him he
was a very sick man and had better be
careful. After he had eaten the doctor told
me he had eaten like a horse. I went In
where he was lying. 'And how are vou
nowf I asked him. No answer. He lay
there with his eyes shut and pretended
not to hear or see me. I got him up. told
him he had eaten a big meal and would
have to go to work, and If he didn't work
well I'd make him stay longer, but If lie
did work well he could get away two or
three days sooner than he expected.
"You never saw a man work as he did.
I asked him when he got through If he
would come back to Schuyler, and he said,
I'd rather go to h II.'
"I consider we have solved the problem
when we can make tramps prefer to go
"This work which they do Is on our
ttreets and our streets are In better condi
tion today than they ever were. I war
rant you we won't have such a thing as a
tramp In our town In another six months
Schuyler will be well advertised as a good
place for tramps to pass up."

The season for grass-fed cattle has ar

week the first shipments arrived. From
this time on each day will show a large
percentage of gain In this class of stock.
Along with these grass-fed cattle will come
a few summer beeves on a long feed of
corn. Last year there were iew summer-
fed cattle for the reason that the panic of
1907 came at a time when feeders would
naturally have bought these cattle. The
only trouble this season has been the high
price of corn prevailing. However, the
stockmen are looking for a much larger
number of summer-fed cattle than last
year. The combination or me iwo classes
of cattle will probably keep up the steady

Beeves well fattened on graoa bring a

They are killed largely by the packers.

The South Omaha grades held most of

Night at Den
Discuss Recent Trade Trip and Pros
pective Visit to Throne of
Good fellowship ruled at the dinner given
by the trade excursion committee of the
Omaha Commercial club Thursday, the last
trade excursion was gone over remlnis
cently and plans were laid for boosters
night st the den next Monday night
Among the members of the trade excur
sion committee present were: D. B. Fuller,
chairman; J. Clarke Colt, T. B. Coleman,
Leroy Corliss, O. W. Dunn, G. J. Ingwer
son, C. E. Johannes, Joe Kelly, F. T. B.
Martin, D. J. O'Brien, W. B. Tagg, J. H.
Taylor, Will L. Tetter and Commissioner
J. M. Guild.
After the dinner at the Commercial club
the committee adjourned to Mr. Martin's
rooms to see the moving pictures mads of
the trip. These pictures will be shown at
the den next Monday night.
, "The success of this trip Is the culmina
tion of a change of sentiment in Omaha,"
said J. C. Colt. "A few years ago it was
a hard task to get out as many boosters
as this for any sort of an occasion, but
now it seems as though the whole popula
tion of Omaha were boosters. This ex
cursion is the first given by Omaha, for
which applications for reservations had to
be turned down. Heretofore tha com
mittee has had to hustle for representa
tives to accompany the trip, but It Was
some pleasure to turn down lata comers
W. B. Tagg of South Omaha used "an
nexation" as his text, although he said rm
did not like the word and preferred "con
solidation" or "co-operation."
"It sounds better to the smaller fellow,"
said Mr. Tagg. "The people of South Om
aha have found out that Omaha does not
want to be the dictator and are becoming
willing to consolidate."
"Omaha Is the top notch city In the trade
excursion business." said Will L. Yetter.
"We heard on all sides that the Omaha
boosters had more life than those of any
other city. When boosting for Omaha we
should always boost for Nebraska, for that
will help Omaha more than any other one
Dan Fuller claimed he went on the first
trade excursion which ever crossed Ne
braska, for he went on the first train the
Burlington ever ran in the state when he
rode on a freight train from Plattsmouth
to Lincoln In the 80 s. ,
Commissioner Guild thought ths wonder
ful reputation Omaha was enjoying all
over the country was due more to the
trde excursion committee than to any
other one factor. He said that if all the
committees would hustle as does the trade
extension ths influence of Omaha would
Increase most surprisingly.
