CHINA GRASPS YANKEE WAYS
Young- Men, Led by Y. II. C. A., Are
Adopting American Athletics.
WANT TO SEND MAN TO OLYMPICS
Prof. C. H. Robertson, On of the
American Workers at Tien
Tela, Tells of the Proa r ess
"Base ball and other American athletlo
sports are being; Introduced In China by
American representatives of the Young
Men's Christian association and it Is now
a question of how long It will be before
China will be able to send a winning- team
to the Olympic," said C. H. Robertson of
the Chlneso Young Men's Christian asso
ciation, who left this country seven years
ago to engage In that roost Interesting
work and Is now visiting local Young
Men's Christian association men. He left
a professorship In an American oollege to
work wtlh the Chines and It took him
two years and three months to get a work
ing knowledge of the language. '
"China Is changing more rapidly than
any "other nation on earth and the Chl
nete boys take up the American games
just as do the American youths. Omaha Is
now supporting a missionary who Is doing
an immense amount of good, W. W. Lock
wood, who was formerly a secretary In the
Young Men's Christian association In
Omaha, and la now general secretary at

Chinese engaging in their athletics and
they look typical, even to the American
megaphone. They are hurdling, throwing
the weights, racing, pole vaulting and
doing all sorts of stunts recognised as
"The. Young Men's Christian association
work In China is now localised, but we
ara trying to make its scope national.
Besides athletics we are working along
seven general lines and all are working
out well.. The second Is by welfare and
Things It Most Avoid.
"China needs to be warned against many
experiences -through which this country has
passed, including the patent medicine
fakirs, who have been run out of America
and have gone to China. The bubonic
plague can be eradicated, and they must
be taught that tuberculosis Is a preventable
disease. They are to be taught of Juve
nile court methods.
"The third line has been the securing
of instruments for lectures on science and
also popular lectures of a practical sort.
The fourth line has been the Introduction
of American teachers. Mr. and Mrs. M.
J. Brown, formerly of Omaha, are now
doing good work at Tien Tsln. Mrs Brown
has several schools she instructs In physi
cal training for women. She Is a daughter
of a. O. Wallace of Omaha.
"The fifth line Is to encourage and coach
Chinese students to come to America.
There are 400 here now and the government
is preparing to send many more. The
sixth line is evangelical work and Bible
study and personal work. The seventh line
Is securing scholarships for qualified young
men to coma to this country. The eighth
line Is to equip the national officers for
the administration of their Young Men's
Christian association activities."

WHY COAL PRICES ARE RISING
Local Coal lien Say Eastern Pro
ducers Are to Blame.
ANTHRACITE RISES IN SYMPATHY
Best It for Advance Seems to
Be that Demand Is Bis; and
Mine Owners Can Get
With coal producers threatening to put
up the pries of coal because of the heavy
demand the mines in the semi-anthracite
region of Arkansas have been forced to
close because of a lack of cars to carry
This information has been received by
coal men In Omaha and on top of this
comes word from the Illinois soft coal re
gion from which Omaha draws a large
part of its supply, that the price of soft
coal at the mine Is to go up 50 cents a ton
at the mine. The result, say the coal deal
ers, will be an advance here within a
month or so.
Just how serious the car shortage Is local
dealers do not know, but it Is certain
there Is a lack of cars over the west.
Dealers In building material are threat
ened with shortages because of the lack
of cars In the cement districts.
The cause of the shortage of cars, ac
cording to the railroads, is the fact that
the exodus of cattle from the range dis
tricts is delayed by the unusually good
range grass this fall and is coming at the
same time that farmers are trying to get
their grain to market. The Northwestern
laet week broke all previous records In
the hauling of cattle from the western Ne
biaoka and Wyoming range country.
One Her er Llsht.
There Is one ray of light in the situation
for the Omaha coal consumers, however.
Coal dealers assert there Is enough coal in
the local bins to supply the demand for
the next thirty days and that until that
time the price la not likely to be affected.
Orders for delivery as soon as the present
congested condition is over are stll! being
taken at the old prices. Dut higher prices,
if not a scarcity of coal, is coming surely,
"Tho advance isthe usual one that
comes whenever there 1b an unusual de
mand for coal," said R. E. Sunderland of
Sunderland Bros. "But it ought to be
clearly understood that it is not put on
by the local dealers, but by the producers
in the east. Their motive Is the same as
that of the man who demands increased
wages when labor la scarce. The local
demand Is such that we cannot supply
everyone at once and we have refused In
some cases to deliver large orders at once,
preferring to divide the orders and supply
the Immediate demands of as many peeople
as we can. All of our fifty teams are out
and other dealers are In the wameflx."
Dealers assert that they would be Jus
tified in raising the retail price of coal
without waiting for an advance in the
wholesale price. .
"We are paying 70 cents a ton now to
teamsters for delivery and wages at the
yards have been Increased from 11 cents
an hour to 22 and 23 cents, an Increase of
about 36 per cent."
