Labor War Is Threatened.
AVe are threatened with a labor war of
huge dimensions, Involving possibly sev
eral millions of workers.
The trouble began In the shipbuilding
trade, where the employers, la retaliation
for soma sectional strikes, declared a
partial lockout, which affected 90,0i men.
The dispute has since been taken up by
the federation of employers In the metal
trades, who threaten to lock out SO per
rent of their workmen if the shipbuilding
trouble Is not Immediately settled. This
would affect an additional 400,000 men.
Finally, the workmen In the great elec
trical Industries have threatened to Join
lunula with the metal workers If the threat
ened lockout Is declared.

The policy of the government Is to main

."Novel Robbery In I'arla.
German policemen who are permitted
to laiiKh now and then are roaring when
off duty over a story which una of them
brought from Paris. It Is "one on" the
detectives In the French capital who rid
iculed the German police a few years ago
when the famous "Captain" Koepenig
held up soldiers and a burgomaster. The
story he brings as that of robbery In Paris
of the most audacious kind which In some
respects reminds us of the exploits of the
famous "Cuptaln" Koepenig. A Jeweler
named Seyper received the visit of a man
who told him that a M. Holland, living
In a hotel nearby, had commissioned him
to sell some valuable Jewelry worth 700
francs. Holland would show the properly
to any likely buyer. Not willing to In
vest In the Jewelry alone. Key per spoke of
the matter to a friend named Garaud, and
they agreed to find the money between
them and halve the profits. They called
on Holland and Inspected the goods. The
price was agreed upon, and Just as Seyuer
and Garaud were handing over the money
two men entered.
"We are detectives," they said "This Is
stolen property, and we arrest you In the
nam of the daw."
They grabbed both money and Jewels,
and took the three men to the Palols de
Justice. There the "prisoners" were told to
remain In the waiting room whilst the
"detectives" went to Interview the magis
trate on the matter. They returned pres
ently. "The magistrate will see you first,"
they told Holland, and away went the
three. To their stupefaction they learned
that nothing has been heard of the case.
A to the "detectives" the two men de
scribed were totally unknown. Then It
dawned upon them that they had been
cleverly led Into a cleverly-laid plot, and
now they are wondering If they will ever
see their 701) again. The French police are
not saying much about the affair.

John Purcell, superintendent of the Banta

The fire would have been more serious
had It not been for the work of the shop

fire district and the only method of com

Hike to Woods
Miss Anne Hutchins, Principal of
Franklin School, Takes Out
Miss Anne K. liutchlns, principal of
Franklin school, took the boys of her
school out for a scouting trip Saturday,
starting at 10 o'clock. A trip was made to
Klmwood park and the boys cooked their
own dinner In the woods.
This and other excursions have ben
planned by the teachers to further the na
tional and local "boy scout" movement
which Is becoming so absorbing an Interest
for small boys. Superintendent Davidson's
office Is continually besieged with Inquiries
concerning the movement, its scope, pur
pose and educational value and both par
ents and youths are trying to find out
whether or not It Is worth while.
One tendency developed by the organiza
tion has caused the Juvenile authorities
some trouble, and although they approve
of the training In woodcraft, they are try
ing to discourage a promlscuoua carrying
of firearms and sharp weapons. A small
boy was found by Probation Officer Bern
stein on Howard street with a sharp sword
that was as big as himself and he an
nounced proudly that his mother had given
him the money with which to buy It. The
sword was taken away from him and his
money returned to him. Both the parents
and dealers are responsible for the children
who get firearms and dangerous play
things. The boy acout movement proper.

LOS ANGELES ENGINEER
SEEKS FOR THE LIGHT
Comes to Omaha In Order to riss
What He Mar I. earn While
It. Hamlin, city engineer of Los Ansel
les, made Omaha a visit Saturday to look
over the methods of laying and arranging
street car trackage. He was taken about
the city by City Engineer Craig.
"The hills of Los Angeles are very simi
lar to what you have here," said Mr. Ham
lin." part of the city being level and part
of It very much broken. The steepest
grade we have, however, It 10 per cent,
and I am told here you have on Dodge
street a grade of 11 per cent.
"The street railway company In Los
Angeles finds It necessary Just as It does
here to run lighter cars on the hill tracks.
We are planning some Improvements' on
our system and I came to see how you
took care of similar situations."
Farmers Mot from One Section to
Another and Effort Will lie Mavde
to Keep Them In Territory
Tributary to Omaha.
How closely Omaha Is linked to the stute
to the westward was demonstrated at the
Commercial club In the addresses to the
Real Estate exchange, when concrete farts
were given by the speakers.
C. C. Rosewater told the real estate, men
that the biggest dry goods bouse In Omaha
bad shown him figures which proved that
3 per cent of Its whole bus.hess Is trans
acted annually In the state of Washington,
and another 3 per cent, or more In Cali
fornia. Nearly similar figures were quoted
on other states to the west, while Ne
braska Itself afforded 40 per cent.
On the same theme, W. O. Paisley told
the exchange of an anecdote related by
W. H. Buchols, who was In Los Angeles
recently. Mr. Buchols met a traveling
talesman for the M. 11 Smith company
there who ssld that he worked only In
California for the company, and who added:
"If the Commercial club has not re
versed Its action on the exposition, I
would have had to quit selling goods her
some days ago."
Respecting the attitude of the railroads,
Mr. Paisley gave one example In the re
ply of James J. Hill, who is Interested In
the Western ljnnd Products exhibit more
because of the Burlington than the Great
Northern. He said to Paisley this:
"Tell Mr. Rosewater that we shall do all
Kxpresslons and promises of like nature
were made bv pruct rnllv all the ro.td
which radiate from liniaiui westward.
Mr. Paisley also discussed one salient
feature of immigration In the I'nlted
"It always Is done In short Jumps." sa'd
he. "In one Colorado town we found all
the families of Pennsylvania orluln. and
all b'.tt one of these had come not direct
to Colorado, but had stopped, generally
in the previous generation, somewhere be
tween the Missouri river and the western
border of Nebraska. So If tome of our
people are now moving west, or north, of
south, others are st1U coming from Ohio,
Indiana or Iowa to take their places. What
we must do Is to deflect the emigration
from our part of the country, from Canada,
and the southwest to territory, which Is
tributary to Omaha and with which we a

Two men, In their rooms at different
hotels, were found at death's door from
the effects of escaping gas Saturday morn

farmer who had blown out the light In

the victim was overcoms when the wind
through the bedroom window extinguished
At the result of having blown out the
gas, Herbert C. Bartlett, a farmer of
Pocatallo, Idaho, was found unconscious

man was placed in the care of Dr. F. II.
Smith and It was said he would recover.
Harry Rockwell, a bell boy, d.soovered the

Twenty per cent i quite a lot of money on, tay, a hundred dollar purchase it's $20 saved. Yet, that's what you benefit by trading here, in South Omaha,
where our rent and operating expenses are even more than 20 per cent LOWER than the cost to the big Omaha furniture houses with their expensive down
town locations. Of course, you know, we make as much profit from each sale we make as the Omaha stores do in spite of the fact that we sell 20 per cent
cheaper. Seems strange, perhaps, but it's true there's just that great a difference in the cost of doing business down town in Omaha and out here in South
Omaha and just to get you to come here and trade we offer you all this saving worth while, isn't it? Well, then, simply request a transfer from any Oma
ha car to any South Omaha car and ride to 24th and L Sts, South Omaha, Every South Omaha car passes our door and the extra ride takes only a few minutes.
