SHIPPERS GET BETTER SPEED
Remit of Conference it a Marked Im
prorement in Handling Freight
RAILROADS WANT TO KNOW
flay tbat Tkr Are Ansloaa te Haatla
Frelaht Aloa It Thr
Fin Some War .
An a result of the recent mating be
tween the special commlttoo of the Com
mercial chib, representing the Jobber and
shippers f Omaha, and tha officials of the
various railroads doing business In thin
vicinity, a marked Improvement la noticed
In the apeed with which freight Is handled.
"vfhat the shippers want to do to get
results," said one freight official, "la to
work" with the railroads. When freight Is
delayed or not delivered promptly, they
should get the details from their traveling
men and let the particular road over which
the goods were shipped know Just when
the stuff was shipped and when it was de
livered. It must be taken as an assured
fact that the railroads are as anxious to
give good service as the shippers are to
"Taking this as a basis to work upon,
it must be seen that the railroads must be
acquainted with conditions before they can
make improvements. The traveling man
can easily find out the details of shipments
from their customers, and they will confer
a favor upon the roads by telling what
they know. The railroads will generally
admit, I think, that the service has not
been .what It should be, but at the same
time they are anxious for Improvement,
jobbers, on the other hand, often expect
too much. If they would get their freight
at the depots early in the morning It would
facilitate matters wonderfully and Insure
"The latest hour at which goods can be
taken for shipment is about 4:30 In the
afternoon, and Jt really seems as though
many Jobbers wait until the last minute
before bringing their freight to the depots
for shipment. There are always a number
of wagons about the place, freight Is
piling up so fast that It la almost Impos
sible to handle It and often delays are oc
casioned. "If the greater part of the goods were
at the station early In the morning the
freight could be listed and prepared for
shipment without much difficulty. Several
of the roads are preparing to en.arge their
freight stations . an are doing their best
to handle the business, which has grown
eo rapidly during ,the past few years, but
co-operation with the shippers is neces
sary. There is room for improvement on
both sides, and If the Jobbers will follow
my advice they will be surprised at the
change they -will bring about."

Frank Leonard is Arrested in San
Franciioo for Robbery Committed
Here Five Years Ago.
The mills of the gods in their slowness
seemed to have ground quite fine enough
to suit Frank Leonard, "stick-up man"
and Jallbreaker ,.
Frank Leonard is a prisoner in San Fran
cisco, according to . the Information from
police, there, who are holding him for
. requisition to Nebraska.
Leonard Is the man, who five years ago
Jarred the feelings . of. a number , of well
known Omaha men by holding them lip In
a, drug store at Twenty-fourth and Seward.
The victims included Frank Bandle, county
recorder of deeds; V. H. Dorrance, James
Hammon, Guv Fleojijg and John Solomon,
all of whom' were relieved of their cash
assets and Jewelry.
After being held ua the party set out
and captured the bandit, marching him In
triumph to Ja'L ; .
Durante Vila was distasteful to Leonard
and ho made his escape not long there
after. Since ' then he has been hunted
from one part of the country to another,
but detectives, never quite managed to
catch up with him.
Recently a man was arrested in San
Francisco on a minor charge. He came
under thu eye of a police sergeant with a
memory, for face of thugs including their
pictures who never, forgets a- single one,
and this officer Identified the man as
Leonard. . . A description of the prisoner
has been sent on here and It tallies exactly
with local records.
