Brief and to the point. The whole story is told
when we say half price. Select your suit from
among 500, pay the man half the price it is marked
and the suit is yours. You have saved 100 per cent
on the deal. That's fair enough and bear in mind,
we haven't an ancient suit in the house. Every suit
is fairly bristling with good style and is a marvel
of tailoring exactness.

The killing of Harry Drefi has brought
forth renewed protests against speeding of
automobiles In Omaha. Even more feeling
lias bet-n aroused than by the two previous
accidents within the last nronth.
E. II. prague, president of the Omaha
Automobile club announced that his or
ganization will make renewed efforts to
"We shall set our own watch and at once
expel all offenders from the club ranks,"
said Mr. Sprague. "It la necessary for
drivers to use extra caution with respect
to children. Older people can be educated
to use ordinary care In crossing streets and
this Is all that fair drivers expect of
pedestrians. Children will run all sorts of
risks, running across the middle of the
rtrett without looking to right or left and
even tt a car Is Just creeping along the Ufa
of children la often endangered.
"For iNs reason, with respect to children,
drivers most keep a constant match. It Is
the only thing that ran be done aa long aa
children are allowed to play In the streets.
Kverycne knows that they cannot be kept
rff and since the automobile Is here to stay,
extra precaution la the only available
means of preventing more distressing ac
cidents.' WasU ' More Meiorejeles.
Mayor rahlman says tie deplores the fact
that lack of funda prevents putUng out
luoie policemen on motor bicycles to watch
for sptedlng autca. "We have only two."
said the mayor, "aud we ought to have six
or eight. The police department Is to be
tven renewed orders to arrest every motor
car speeder and to exercise every ounce of
diligence to pevent speeding.
"The death of the little Drefs boy is most
distressing. It la the third fatality within
a month aud It brings a shook to everyone
that a 6-year-old boy should be thus sud
denly killed. A serious sense of responsi
bility must be Inculcated in the driver of
every car and offenders must be punished
as severely as possible. The slaughter of
children in the streets must stop."
County Attorney English Bald that "at
the present rate prosecution of men for kill
ing people through automobiles bids fair
to become much the greatest part of our
work. It Is Just a month since William
Krug's Ufa was snuffed out.
"Prosecutions will go on vigorously, but
this Is certainly a matter where prevention
of accidents is more desirable than regrets

Judge Estelle of the district court says
he thinks the ordinary fine imposed on
reckless drivers Is not a sufficiently heavy

Another case of base ingratitude has
come to light in the distribution of a cir

MORE RAIN HELPS THE CROPS
Falls la Greart quantity Over the
Easter Portloa of the
Rain fell In considerable quantity all over
Nebraska Thursday night, but the showers
were scattering and some of the portions
seeding It worjt were not touched. On all
the ra'lroad lines showers were reported In
the eastern section, with fairly Ijeavy rain
from Omaha to Uncolu. In aouineasurn
Nebraska the rain was geneial, but not
heavy and all along the South Platte valley
showers were felt. Crete, Mlnden, Mc
Cook, Lincoln and Long Pine w-'e centers
of rain, but west of those points very
little rain fe'l except on the Burlington line
between Alliance and Edgemont.
Crops are reported to be progressing and
In most sections, especially along the Rock
Island en average crop is expected. Corn
will be larger than the usual amount It the
weather does not ret too hot from now on,
but the wheat will not be quite up to the
average yield. Wheat Is weighing sixty-one
pounds to the bushel and averaging sixteen
to eighteen bushels to the acre.

treat by the Union Paclfio Railroad and the
McKeen Motor Power compunV on July 30.
On that day both shops will be thrown open
to the Inspection of the people from 9 In
the morning until 4 p. in. Capable men
will be In each part of the buildings ready
to explain to the onlookers the purpose
arfd manner of working of each piece of
the great machine shops.
' When the plan of letting the shops be
open for an afternoon was first thought
of, It was thought that perhapa only the
employes and their families would be per
mitted to pass through, but A. L. Mohler,
vice-president and general manager, haa
decided that this should be made an op
portunity for everyone wishing to view
the famous shops to do so.
SIcKrra Shops Also.
President McKeen offered to open the Mc
Keen works on the same day to the public
as they are in the same lnclosure with the
Union Pacific works, and were formerly
connected with them. Several motors
are now In course of construction and as
many people, of this city have nevor seen
the new cars, the chance to see them
will be accepted with pleasure, It Is ex
pected. "Omaha scarcely realises the vastness
of the works nor the great number of men
that are employed at these shops," re
marked T. M. Urr, assistant general mana
ger. In speaking of the coming day. "Of
course we reculve many requests from In
dividuals and different societies and clubs
to allow them to pass through our shops
while In operation, but this Is somewhat
dangerous and one of our chief reasons In
setting this day is to allow everyone to
see them who wishes to."

Following the explosion of dynamite un
der a derrick at the new power house ol
the Omaha & Council Bluffs Street Railway
company, Fifth and Pacific streets shortly
after midnight, Friday morning, Assistant
Manager LeuBler give out an interview
declaring his belief an Incendiary had per
petrated the damage.
"From the manner in which the explosive
was evidently placed, from the threats
that have come Indirectly to our ears and
from previous violence which has teen en
acted upon the contractors, 1 believe the
explosion was a malicious piece of work,"
Mr. Eeusjler estimated the damage at
$1,UU) and detectives Maloney and Vau
Uusen give it as their belief as amounting
to not more than M.
"The Wisconsin bridge and Iron com
pany, which la doing the construction
work," said Mr. L.eussler, has suffered from
a number of dynamite crimes In the last
sevcrul years. The company had trouble
with structural Iron woikmen's unions and
lias been employing only nonunion rnau
since. It is believed dissatisfied workmen
for this reas n have been doing the dyna
miting." I.rUBsler then explained that the dyna
mite charge at the powr house had been
placed under the shou of the derrick boom.
Intended probably to throw the huge boom
agulnst a wall and destroy both. That this
did not occur as completely as expected,
he said, probably was an accident
Mr. Leussler announced the street rail,
way company had offered a reward of MM
for the conviction of the perpetrators of
the deed and the construction company
offered a like rewaid.
