, 1 0. I. Dickeson Moves Up Fat in the
Bailroad World When Once He
Makes a Start.
O. I Dlckeson, who was recently ap
pointed vice president of the White Pads &
Yukon railroad, at the age of 34, occupies
the unique position of being the youngest
railroad vies president connected with
American systems. Dickeson's rise, un
usual as it is, is nothing more than a
story of well-directed energy. He was an
ambitious youngster with some Idea of
the place to which he wished to make his
Dtaaeson was born In Ottumwa, la., m
1S77. He attended publlo school until he
was IS. Then he decided Ottumwa didn't
give hlra quite enough room to stretch, so
be went to Chicago with a few dollars
and much hope. He entered a business
oolleg in the Windy City and managed, by
doing odd jobs In spare time, to exist
until he received a diploma as an amanuen
sis. This diploma was his sole possession
when he plunged Into the big struggle of
the city. There was no money for rainy
flays; action was Imperative. He burled
his nose m the newspapers, smelted out
opportunity in the name of "stenographer"

Chicago, Burlington Qulncy railroad, ap
plied for the Job, and got It
Two years later he ceased taking dicta
tion and turned dictator, assuming the
position of superintendent of the depart
ment. He was still cramped for room,
and in 1905 became superintendent of the
Burlington's freight and passenger lines
weat of the Missouri river, with headquar
ters at Omaha, Neb.
Dlckeson could not remain long on one
lot. His personality and work had at
tracted the attention of Daniel Wlllard.
now president of the Baltimore dt Ohio
railroad, then vice president In charge of
the operation of the Burlington. Wlllard
brought him back to Chicago and made
htm Inspector of transportation.
Dlckeson worked at Wlllard's side, and
when Wlllard resigned practically assumed
the tatter's work. For the title he cared
nothing. He was absorbing power every
day, becoming known throughout railroad
circles, and finally cams his last appoint
ment, which marks a new record In rail
roading; a vice president at M.

Assessment and Sale Valne.
The Board of Review cited In several
property owners In the neighborhood of
the stock yards fo show cause why their
respective parcels of land should not be
assessed at sums ranging from 12.600 to
33.000, instead of the present valuations of
$700 and $300.
The case hinges on the alleged attempt
of the Union Stock Yards company to pur
chase the land In order to erect their new
1100,000 horse barn. At the time the owners
of the property are said to have demanded
sums that tn the opinion of the would-be
purchasers were exorbitant. It Is claimed
that the lots are assessed and valued at
about 3700 to 3800 and that the advance
of prices was -only an attempt to hold
up the stock yards company. Tha owners,
tn defense, claimed that the land was
worth more than the present valuation
and accordingly the Board of Review will
take them at their word unless they can
put up a very good argument to the con
trary. Among those said to have been cited In
are several Independent packers, including
Steve Vail and Hlgglns Bros. The
expansion of the Union Stock Yards com
pany Is tn the direction of the smaller
competitors of the large packing com
panies. Besides the above mentioned individuals
the Jetter Brewing company Is likewise
said to have experienced a raise In their
assessments from $12,500 on personal prop
erty to $23,000, and from $31,000 on real
estate to $60,000.
Steals Clersrrman's Collar.
John Bkrdls, a disciple of Karl Marx,
appropriated a Roman collar belonging to
Rev. Father Johannls, pastor of the Lithu
anian church, yesterday afternoon. A few
hours later, arrayed In the clerical garb,
Bkrdls essayed a pastoral visit to some of
the packing houses. Despite his distinctive
garb of the clergy the general bearing of
Bkrdls did not produce the desired Impres
sion upon the rough sons of toll. His
preaching, far from inspiring the result ex
pected, roused the ire of Constable George
Collins, who took tha peeudo clergyman In
Deposited In the penitential retreat pre
sided over by Captain Hank Elsfelder,

to play, dancing on the finest pavilion in
the west, music that would set the blood
of a mummy athrlll these are some of the
Inducements held out to the guests of the
Fair women with the pink cheeks and
the soft-eyed sheen of Erin's merry

ferent booths. Between the benedicts and
the unsnared bachelors of the club there

Wisner Man in iDesperate Eight-Hour
Search While Yonth Patiently
Waits for Him.
Leaving his 10-year-old boy behind a
signboard at Fifteenth street and Capitol
avenue while he went to the postofflce at
4:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon, N. F.
Thorman, a farmer of Wisner, forgot be
hind what signboard ho had left the young
After making a canvass of almost every
billboard In the city he came upon the
lad in his rounds at 12:90 o'clock this morn
ing standing unperturbed, like a certain
fabled youth on a certain biasing deck, In
the very same spot he had left htm.
At 10:80 o'clock, after walking five or
six miles on his hunt Thorman, extremely
excited, went to the police station to
ask for help In his search. The entire force
was notified and the officers were kept
busy looking about the vicinities of each
billboard on their respective beats, but
were unable to locate a certain tall weed
which Thorman described as near the
When he finally found the youth, Thor
man took him to the police station and
called off the officers from the hunt.
George, the boy, red-haired and freckled,
took the matter as a huge Joke on his
father. He said he knew the way from
where his parent had hidden him to the
Belmont hotel, where they were staying,
but preferred obeying his parent to doing
such a praiseworthy thing.
"I knew he'd come," , he grinned, dis
playing a much broken row of front teeth.
Thorman explained that he had left the
lad behind the signboard because he wanted
to protect the boy's eyes from the after
noon sun. He had Just taken little George
from St Joseph's hospital, where the boy
had been for two weeks, undergoing treat

Former Mayor Bemis
Renews His Fealty
Says Infected with Booster Spirit All
His Life and Cannot Get Away
from it Now.
Former Mayor George P. Bemls has writ
ten the following letter to Samson:
"OMAHA. July 29, 1911.-Samson: Reply,
lng to your very urgent Invitation to be
come Inoculated with the Ak-Sar-Ben germ
by becoming a knight of the Omaha
boosters for the promotion of the pros
perity of the city, allow me to say that I
have been Infected with that spirit all my
life, having been born with It In my system.
"To these latter-day boosters It may be
of Interest to know that my cousin, the
late George Francis Train, was the original
Omaha booster and pioneer promoter of the
welfare of Omaha; that In conjunction with
that live wire genius, whom It must be
admitted was without a peer In his day
in promulgating truths and promoting pros
perity, the writer was Instrumental In In
ducing the captains of Industry na-ly
fifty years ago In building the Union Pa
cific railroad across the plains and moun
tains from Omaha to the west.
"This project was, like many others con
ceived by Mr. Train, regarded as vision
ary, but with the true booster spirit and
an indefatigable will and determination
Mr. Train lived to see the first shovel
of earth heaved and the road completed
and operated during his lifetime.

pletely obscuring roe and smy efforts. A
careful perusal of all the facts as prlrted
In the newspapers of the time will sup
port my contention that I have always
labored for Omaha. I am an optimist not
only as to the future of Omaha, but as to
myself and my fellow men. I believe
that the organization and vital forces of a
city like that of man are capable of Im
provement andvpreservation and that the
life and duration of activity may be ex
tended by strict adherence to the laws of
nature, trade and common sense together
with the abandonment of luxurious ways
of living. I flatter myself that with my
new thought Ideas I may avoid the weak
ness of sensibility and old age and the
decline of the vital forces e.nd live to be
even more than a centenarian. ln con

Water Bond Election
Wednesday, August 2th, 1911. Polls Open To 8 A. M. to 6 P. M. You Can Vote If You
Registered Last Year.
OFFICIAL STATEMENT AND RESOLUTION
Adopted by the
OMAHA WATER BOARD
TO THE CITIZENS OF OMAHA:
The water board, in the performance of what it believed
to be its duty in protecting the interests of the city, called
the recent water bond election for the purpose of providing
for the taking over of the water plant and making necessary
extensions and improvements hereto. It transpired in that
election that eleven wards of the city carried the bonds by
a very large majority and that the necessary two-thirds vote
would have been secured had it not been for an adverse ma
jority in a locality where, there is great reason to believe,
the votes of non-taxpayers were influenced by some motive
or reason other than that of the city's welfare.
SINCE Tins FACT BECAME KNOWN IT HAS
BEEN INSISTENTLY DEMANDED THAT TirE BONDS
BE IMMEDIATELY RE-SUBMITTED. THE WATER
BOARD IN RECOGNITION AND APPRECIATION OF
THIS DEMAND, AND, AT THE SAME TIME, IN THE
PERFORMANCE OF WHAT IT BELIEVED TO BE ITS
DUTY IN PROTECTING THE INTERESTS OF TIffi
CITY, HAS AGAIN CALLED A SPECIAL ELECTION
TO BE HELD BETWEEN THE HOURS OF 8 A. AL AND
6 P. M. WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 2D, 1911, AT WHICH
WTLL BE AGAIN SUBMITTED A PROPOSITION TO
ISSUE $8,250,000 OF WATER WORKS BONDS, PAY
ABLE IN 30 YEARS AND BEARING INTEREST NOT
TO EXCEED 4V2 PER CENT PER ANNUM.
In 1903 the mayor and council elected to purchase the
water plant at a value to be ascertained by three engineers.
This appraisement resulted in a valuation of $6,263,259.49
and the water company immediately brought suit to compel
the city to take the plant at that price. The supreme court
of the United States has ruled that the city is required to
take over the property at this valuation. That question is
THE WATER PLANT MUST BE PAID FOR, AND
THERE IS NO IMMEDIATE METHOD OF MAKING
PAYMENT OR POSSIBILITY OF SECURING POSSES
SION OF THE PLANT EXCEPT BY THE AUTHORIZA
TION AND SALE OF BONDS. MOREOVER, IF THE
CITY HAD POSSESSION OF THE WATER PLANT, EX
TENSIONS AND IMPROVEMENTS OF THE PLANT
WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE WITHOUT THE AUTHOR
IZATION AND SALE OF BONDS.
If the bonds are voted the water board will take steps
to secure possession of the water plant aa soon as possible,
