This tlon wail taken by the Western

to Ita attention that many worthy em

aharka to an ext.nl that In aome caaea
amounted to hardship, one rase In particu
lar waa railed t' the attention ot the
Omaha of f. e. More than a year ago an
employe boriowcd i.O of t loan shark. He
paid Interrat in the loan at the rata of
12 a month until he 1 ad paid . Tha loan

Loans from Bmrt Off Ice a.
Such loans are being made by all of the
branch offices of the company. Each loan
la handled by the city office. No delay Is
necessary and action on the application la
gotten at once. The necessity of the loan
la considered with the worthiness of the
employe and an Immediate derision given.
Turing the three months this plan has
been operative in the Omaha office twenty
four applications for loans have been made
by the 20 employe. For many reasons it
waa neiry t refuse a small number
of these, t'eath, sickness, fire and many
other thin s may enter In making a loan
a necessity. In the case of one of the of
fice girls, who applied for a loan to buy
an Easter outfil, a loan waa refused.
No fund Is set aside for the making of
these loans, but the money la taken out
of the fund of each office.

to Invite a certain number of officers from

that the chances are slim, unless hostilities

SOLDIERS ALL ON THE MOVE
Recruiting Station is Ordered to Get
Busy at Once.
LIEUT. SMITH AIDE TO FATHER
Railroads Are Dolns; Their Beat ta
Haatle the Troops to the Front
Army Poata Are Prac
Additional color to war talk came Thurs
day In an order received by Lieutenant N.
W. Poet. I". B. N.. in charge of the Omaha
naval recruiting station, to redouble ef
forts to enlist men In the service. Similar
orders have been sent to every Important
naval recruiting station in the country.
Lieutenant Post is one of a number of
naval and army officers here who have
from the outset looked upon the general
movement of troops to the Mexican border
as something more serious than a mere
"President Dlas of Mexico Is on his last
legs, and just the moment he gives up the
battle of life there is bound to be a general
guerilla warfare In that country. Ameri
can and other interests In Mexico will
therefore be endangered, and I think It is
a wise move on the part of the United
States to send an army in the field to be
prepared In case anything serious hap
pens." thus Lieutenant Post sums up the
Though he does not have any official In
formation, he is firmly of the belief that
the order for more naval recruits comes as
a direct result of the disembarkation of
about &0 marines at the United States
naval atatlon in Guantanamo, Cuba Six
teen ships have already put their marines
ashore there, making more room for re
cruits. "1 think the marines have been put off
at Guantanamo, becauae of lta cloae prox
imity to Mexico," explains the lieutenant.
"From that point they can be readily
transported to Mexico.
Soldiers oa the Way.
In the meantime practically every army
trooper of the 30.000 ordered to the border
has been entrained and Is en route south.
Troops A and D, Fourth cavalry, left
Fort Meade. S. D, Wednesday evening
on two trains, one at :10 and the other
at 40. At Gordon the two trains were
merged Into one. At t o'clock the same
night the train had reached Lone Pine, a
distance of 4 miles from the starting
point. This Is considered remarkably fast
time by the officers of the Department of
Northwestern officials inform the de
partment that the cavalrymen. Including
headquarters, band and machine gun pla
toon, besides the two troops, are expected
to arrive in Omaha between and 7 o'clock
Thursday evening. At this point they will
be transferred without delay to the Rock
Island and proceed to tl I'aso. Colonel
Eteever is In command, accompanied by
Major Kder of the Medical corps.
Word has been received from Washing
ton appointing Lieutenant Raymond
Smith as aide on the staff of his father,
General Frederick A. Smith, who Is on his
way south to take command of a brigade.
Lieutenant Smith left Omaha Thursday
The movements of troops from the De
partment of the Missouri has left Forts
Meade. Mackenxle and Russell practically
abandoned. Ot.ly a few men and officers
remain to guard property, and these are
soon to be relieved by civilian caretakers.
At Fort Russell, the Sevond battalion of
engineers will take charge, now being en
route from Fort Ajs;nlbine.
