Train for Omaha to Attend
! tfce National Merlin.
A dosen or mora prominent railroad
men arc preparing to make their prea
nee felt at the annual convention of the
Wyoming Wool Growers' asscc!t;lon In
Cheyenne next Monday. They will leave
trre Sunday.
The Burlington will b represented by
Assistant General Freight Afcnt Mont
morency and John Pet, general live
lock agent, and all of the local live
tock agents who cover westorn No
biaaka and Wyoming. Among the North,
western men will be General Freight
nd Passenger Agent Miller; J. Lever,
freight and passenger agent of the Wy
oming llnea, and V. V. Cutler, general etock agent. While the Union Pa
cific will not send any men from the
general offices, nil of the live stock
agents who work western Nebraska.
Wyoming and Colorado, will be In at
tendance. Here the Union Pacific freight men
will resolve themselves Into a reception
committee to assist In entertaining the
delegates to tUo national convention of
the Wool Growers' aoeoclatlon that con
venes In Omaha Thursday,
't The Omaha men who to to the Chey
enne meeting expect to remain until the
' close ol the convention, accompanying
the delegates to this city. Of those who
attend the convention at Cheyenne it Is
expected that fully fW will come to
Omaha for the national meeting. They
will probably arrive 0:1 a special train
over the Union Pacific some time
Wednesday night or Thursday morning.
They Arc Enthusiastic.
Omaha railroad men are all enthusiastic
, over both the Cheyenne and Omaha meet,
ings. They anticipate a large attendance
at both places ad two very Important
and Interesting meetings. The say that
the wool growing Industry of Wyoming
and the states tributary to Omaha trade
on the west has grown to such an extent
during the last five years that at this
time It completely overshadows the Im
portance of cattle raising.- They point to
the fact that all over the west cattle are
etill raised, but Instead of the size of
the herds having Increased they have
constantly and gradually diminished. On
the other hand, both the slxe and the
number of the fiocka of sheep have In
creased many fold.
Up In the Medicine Bow country, 100
miles or mora north of the main line of
the Union Pacific in Wyoming, where a
few years ago all of the ranchmen were
ongaged in raising cattle, most of them
liave since turned their attentl n to sheep.
At the present time In this section there
are hundreds of thousands of sheep, most
of which are eventually boumt to come
to the Omaha market. Similar conditions
exist along the line of the Northwestern
from Casper all the way through to Lan
der and along the Burlington from the
Nebraska state line to the Big Horn
Omaha Finances
Will Balance at
End of the Year
City Comptroller Cosgrovo will report
to the city council within a week the fact
that the city finances, for the first time
In several years, will balance at the
end of the year, with a small surplus In
several funds and a deficiency In none.
"This Is the first time this condition
lias existed for several years," said Mr.
Cosgroye. "Usually funds are overdrawn
at the end of the year, but strict econ
omy and by a hewing of expenditures In
some Instances there will be no overlap
of expenditures this year."
In order to keep the expenditures within
the appropriations heads of aome depart
ments of the city government have prac
ticed stringent economy toward the close

of the year, the number of assistants
being decreased to the minimum and the
expenses curtailed as much as efflolency
would possibly permit.
J. Grant Pegg Wants
Colored Assistant
John Grant Pcgg. city Inspector of
weights and measures, has directed a
communication to the city council object
ing to the appointment of a white man as
assistant Inspector. He also objects to
the appointment of two assistants, believ
ing one other man will be all the help he
will need.
Mr. Pegg says: "As your appointee, at
the head of the department of weights
and measures, please allow me to make
the following suggestions:
''It Is not necessary to appoint more
than one assistant Inspector of weights
and measures. I have consulted with
Principal Dyett, Itev. John A. Williams,
W. F. Botts and some of the leading
negro business men In the city and they
are of the same opinion.
'We think that the assistant should be
a negro In order to Insure harmorty and
diligent effort to pafform the duties of
the office. We believe It Is a Job that
rightfully belongs to a negro, at least
until my term expires."
This letter Is brought forth In objection
to the appointment of Ralph Richardson,
while, with II. T. AtmBtoad, colored, to
nsslat Mr. Pegg, and to sfrve at a salary
of ITS per month. The appointments were
made by the mayor,' but have not been
confirmed by the council.
City-Attorney John A. nine will leave
