showed comparatively little change. At
first the trade was a little backward In
opening, but when once under way - there
was a fair movement; so far as desirable
kinds of cattle were concerned at prices no
more than a shade lower. Inferior and
trashy kinds are never very free sellers.
Cows and heifers moved off quite freely
and salesmen as a general thing were quot

The bulk of the offerings changed hands In
good season In the forenoon.
The better grades of feeders were In de
mand and were free sellers at stead
prices. The supply was mail and what few
cattle there were of that description
changed hands in good season. Inferior
kinds, as a matter of course, did not move
so readily, but still the market as a whole
was In very satisfactory condition.

HO'lS Supplies were by no means liberal
this momli.g. about 3 00 In ail but In spite
of the rather moderate run. both packers
snd shippers openly derl ired at the start
that they were out ot the market at yes
terday's figures. Outshln Bdvtees were ex
tremely bearish and early bids at this
point were about a dime lower than yester
day's best time or eislly a nickel' lower
thsn the close. In fact. It was generally
a 7 6fi market so far as bulk of bids wns
concerned, but very few sales were made
early to accurately reflect the actual ait
untinn. The movement was naturally very sl-tw
and It was well along In the morning before
salesmen and buyers finally agreed upon
a trading basis.

SHEKP V 1th only a limited proportion
of reaily good killing stock included In this
morning's run, packers made no attempt
to follow up yesteidity's bearish groows
and bought freely trom the opening t
prices that were strong to a dime higner,
and. In spots of advance, was possibly
even greater. Total receipts today were
fully normal for a Tuesday at this, t.me
of the year, about 16.UW head being re
ported In, but the charscter of the offer
ings was none too good and plainly in
dicated that the short season of range,
"clean-ups " Is at hand.
It will be remembered that the fat stock
market was dull and draggy yesterday, with
prices decidedly weak. Closing rounds
found most sales quotable at weak to right
around a dime lower, so that today's ad
vance has restored quotations to last Fri
day's level and put the general trade on a
good strong basis. Movement was active
this morning and anything at all desirable
Feeder buyers were plentiful, aa usual,
this morning, nnd the demand for suitable
thin and half-fat classes was fully pro
portionate to receipts. There was little
change of consequence as far as prices
were concerned, most strings realizing not
far from steady money. It might he we.l
to mention in this connection, that, while
the demand for feeding stock has been
brisk on all days lately, the poorer grades
are somewhat neglected and occasional dull
spots In the market do not Indicate that the
outlet Is narrowing, but that rural talent Is
not kindly disposed toward common and
trashy kinds. This feature Is perhaps more
evident at present since rangemen are
dumping Into the market hopper the sea
son's "clean-up" of odds and ends.

A swirling bluckness and void swallowed
U. J. Fahey. Mighty potency, liquor, was
the only Impression that fleeted through
his consciousness when the all-obliterating
crash came. There wus a swish In Inter
stellar space, a shower of the constella
tions, and then swift oblivion.
The night's long . silence wus broken to
the wondering Fahey when he heard the
crisp voice of the police judge:
"One dollar and costs."
Fahey, Imbued with an exceedingly effi
cient Inebriation, had fallen from the via
duct at Cnlon station, and tumbled softly
on the pavement thirty feet below with
out a scratch.

JUDGE WAKELEY'S TRIBUTE
TO MRS. JOSEPH BARKER
Woman of Marked Individuality and
wronxtt Mark Good for
Judge E. Wakeley, one of the pioneer cltl
xens of Omaha and Nebraska, pays this
tribute to the memory and deeds of Mrs.
Joseph Barker, who died Sunday lind was
The death of Mrs. Joseph Barker, after
a lingering Illness, has removed from us a
member of one of the pioneer families who
came to Omaha In its early uncertain years
to abide Its fortunes and Its future to the
She was a daughter of Colonel John rat
rick of Unlontown, Pa., whose three sons
and two daughters came from there In

death. The sons, J. N. H., M. T. and A.
S. Tatrlck the only survivors of the family
identified themselves permanently and suc
cessfully with the business life and Inter

Eliza E., the elder sister, married Joseph
Barker, also of a pioneer family, and who
continued to take an active and Influen

Omaha until his death, a few years since.
Mrs. lSarker wus a woman of marked in

Some Things You Want to Know
The Thirtwnth Census
On the 15th day of next April. 65.009 men
will start out to gather the Information
upon which tha Thirteenth Census will be
based. Never before ha such careful
preparation been road to secure honest,
accurate, and complete returns. Ths direc
tor of census realises the dlffloulty of secur
ing good, competent and faithful enumera
tor, because the period Is too short to
justify employed men to leave their regular
work, and the pay 1 too small to attract
the best men. It will take fifteen days
to make the city enumerations and thirty
days for the country districts. The pay
will amount lo about $3 a day In the
country and a trifle more In the cities.
It was suggested that the position of
enumerator be made one of honor, and that
the men serve without pay. as Is done In
some European countries, a medal of honor
being given to those who serve well and
faithfully. Director Purand thinks that
such an arrangement might be mad at
some future time, but that It would not be
expedient under present conditions. He does
hope, however, to get many men who will
serve more because of Interest In the work
than for the compensation Involved. He ex
pects to make use of many of the crop
reports correspondents of the Department
of Agriculture, many of the students of
colleges and universities, and as many
school teachers as he can get.
The population schedule will be carried
by every one of the 66.000 people who will
constitute the army of enumeration, but
only 45,000 of them will carry tha agricul
tural schedules. The statistics of mines and
quarries and manufactures will be taken
by a corps of chief and assistant special
agents, 2,000 strung- They will be the
cavalry of the census army and their work
may continue for fifteen months.
It Is realised that aside from the actual
enumeration of the population the most
Important Inquiry appertains to the farm.
With all the progress America has made
as a manufacturing nation, the fixed capi
tal In manufacturing Industries Is less than
half as much as that Invested in agricul
ture. A special effort Is to be made to
secure accuracy In farm returns. To that
end the director has caused to be Issued
a long- statement, which he hopes will
reach every farmer In the country, Im
pressing upon the farmer the Importance
of keeping an accurate record of all his
farm operations, sales, etc., for the cal
endar year 1909, that he may be ready for
the enumerator. The director point out
that while the Department of Agriculture
has a wonderfully efficient corps of crop
estimators and reporters, the Industry Is
so vast and many of Its elements and con
ditions so intangible to superficial obser
vation, that nil its figures would become
practically valueless were they r.ot regu
larly revised in the light of actual census
returns. In the statement sent out to the
farmers Is an outline of the agricultural
schedule, and each farmer ts requested to
make a note of each particular bit of in
formation called for an soon aa he gets It.

This Is an innovation which augurs well for

There probably will be some womef enu

It Is hardly probable, however, that the

to as much as one per cent of the whole.
In tha Oklahoma census a few women
were employed, and they made a good rec

Gathering the Data
he will be asked to explain. His final re
port must balance exactly with the sum
of hi dally reports.
T'p to the census of 1880 It was required
that all the returns of population he posted
at some conspicuous place In the enumer
ation district o that every person Inter
ested could make sure that thers was no
padding of lists and no omissions. Since
that time the dally report system ha been
in vogue, and has largely served the same
purpose, at the same time greatly reducing
the expense of the work.
In the past there have been many at
tempts at padding the lists. In one census
a Misslssissippl enumerator, a negro, made
the returns for ad the farm In his district,
and then duplicated these returns for every
member of the family on each farm. This
padding was for ths sole purpose of in
creasing his pay. T,'ually padding has
been mora marked in the cities, and ha"
been done more for the purpose of "boost
ing" population totals than anything else.
In the 1SS0 census two cities In a north cen
tral state undertook to pad their popula
tion returns. Each was watching ths other.
The one went at it In a coare, crude way,
and wa soon caught In the act. The
other handled the situation with a finer
hand, and might have escaped detection
but for the watchfulness of the rival city.
In one city there war' several hundred
people returned aa permanent dwellers In
the union station. A prominent newspaper
building was reported to hava sixty-five
permanent residents. When the census
bureau decided upon a re-enumeretlon, a
committee was sent to Washington to pro
test against It. Among the members ot the
committee was the owner of tha big news
paper building. When he had spoken at
soma length supporting ths accuracy of Uie
first returns, the record for his own build
ing was produced. Hs was forced to Join
in the laugh that followed at his owa ex
panse. It remained for a man under tha very
shadow of the dome of the national capl
tol to discover tha most unique way of
padding his returns at the last census, lie
was a Maryland enumerator, and ha
visited the cemeteries In his district and
returned the names .an . ths tombstones.
But he was not able to cover up his tracks
and was very soon overtaken by the lynx
eyed census office detectives.
Hitter disappointment la In store for many
cities next "year. . For. Instance, Los
Angeles and Seattle are each determined
to be written down by the thirteenth
census as the second city on the Parclflc
coast, and they have been booming them
selves for all they are worth. Their race
la only one of doxens that are now going
on. Buffalo is working hard In advance,
and Houston and San Antonio are having
a great race for primacy In Texas. It Is
the common experience of census au
thorities that when the showdown comes
very few cities are able to live up to their
claims of population. Some of them, ..how
ever, recognising the danger of exaggerated
claims, have stopped setting their figures
above the census mark.
It Is estimated that -the actual cost of
enumeration or gathering the data will be
In the neighborhood of, $4,000,000. At the
last census the average pay for each
enumerators was about $60. It ts expected
that fully 90 per cent of this will be paid
out within three months of the date of be
ginning the enumeration. As stated be
fore the returns of manufacturing, .mining
and quarrying will be secured by special
agents. These men will be appointed be
cause of their especial fitness for the work
and there will be several assistants under
each chief special agent. It Is hoped that
a highly competent corps of agents equip--ped
with simplified schedules will make
this census of manufactures a notable one.
If the country continues to grow In the:
next twenty years as It has grown In the
last double decade, the.f IfteenK 'census
will require an army of men aa large as

perts think that the census will soon be

over of It own weight. ;'but the majority
