ft'ithin the next six weeks large parties
of South Omaha laboring men will leave
' for the harvest fields of Kansas, Mis
iourl and Nebraska where it is reported
there is a call for 20.000 hands. The exodus
of the local laboring men will relieve
conditions resulting from slack work in
the packing houses, where many of the
men have already been laid off.
The labor conditions in South Omaha
have been more or less acute fir some
time notwithstanding in. .(.tempts of
the packing houses to relieve the situ
ation. Cattle shortage and the high prices
of meat have both contributed to a short
market and for some time past the la
boring men" of the packing houses havo
been making broken time at wages fre
quently as low as 17V4 cents per hour.
Two weeks ago General Manager R. C.
Howe endeavored to even matters up
by cutting down the force of employes
ana giving the men of family more time.
The same policy has been adopted by the
other houses. General Manager Howe also
Increased the wage per hour to 19 cents.
The result of the new policy, while it
has assisted some of the men it has de
prived others of any employment and the
call of the harvest fields is looked upon
as the salvation of the many now out of
" Every year there is a certain number
of meat have both contributed to a short
of men who leave town for the harvest
states. This year the harvesters ill be
greater and it is expected that ther re
turn will . find the local industries in
better shape as far as the laboring man
The wage paid harvest men is said to
be as high as $3.60 per day with board,
which although for only a sort time,
means much to the man who has a family
and children depending upon him.
Pearee Going Camping;.
. Del Pearce, whose recent pamphlet on
the "Philosophy of Piscatorial Meander
ings" haB attracted the notice of the
disciples of Iz&ak Walton throughout the
country, will leave this afternoon with
a large company of enthusiastic fisher
men for Dewey lake in Cherry county,
In the company are such well known
sportsmen as Del Pearce, P. J. Martin,
John Ames, V. V. Foltik and Dana Mor
rill. The men expect to build a camp and
' practice the principle laid down by Pearee
in his work on fishing. The company
will be gone about ten days.
Live Stock Market Grows.
To those'not closely conversant with the
progress made by the local market within
the last year its great advance in hogs
comes as a surprise. The surprise is not
so much the fact of the success of the
market as it is the place now held by
South Omaha among the five great mar
kets of Chicago, St Louis, Kansas City
and Sioux City. .
Figures show that in the last year
the Omaha maiket has gained compara
tively more than all the other market 3
together. Omaha, for a ;eriod extending
over the last . year shows a net gain
of 445,951 hogs ever the corresponding
time a yetr prior. " ' The other- markets
together show that their net gain over the
year previous to this one amounts to
As opposed to Kansas City, which has
held to the second place among the hog
markets figures show that for a term
extending over the present year to 'late
Kansas City received 1,337,024 head of
hogs as against 1,707,338 head received
at Omaha, giving Omaha a substantial
lead of 370,314 head of hogs to date. The
report gives great encouragement to. he
local hog men who have for a long .time
striven to place the Omaha market second
in the list of great live stock markets of
the country. Several times during the
, last year the local hog market has won
the coveted place, but only for a trans
itory period. It is now hoped that the
lead maintained to date will help Omaha
tokeep the second place.
Protecting the Sewers.
City Engineer Herman Beal and his
office force have arranged for the cover
ing of iU-smelling manholes with catch
basins and sanitary protections and will
begin to install the same within a few
days. The first trial of the lew Dasins
will be made on Railroad avenue where
gas fumes and unhealthy' and disagree
able odors have emanates from the
sewer until property owners and resi
dents of the section appealed for help to
the city council! It is said that a
number of children contracted infect'ous
diseases last' year from the malodorous
miasma rising from the sewois in 'lanroad
avenue. The new basins . are of two
kinds, one purchased on trial and another
devised by the office of the city engineer.

member-at-large for the woman suf
frage party of the city of New York,
who will give an address on woman suf
frage at the Country club tomorrow after
noon at 3 o'clock under the auspices of
the Equal Franchise society. Those who
have met Mrs. Potter say that she is
as pretty and womanly as if she had
spent her time at pink teas and other
purely feminine diversions, Instead of
in so-called "serious" pursuits.
In giving an enumeration of Mrs. Pot
ter's accomplishments it is easier to name
them in chronological order, starting in
at the beginning with the literary work
and putting suffrage Interests last al
though they are by no mrmns least.
Mrs. Potter took two degrees from El
mira college, the oldest woman's college
in the world; an A. M- degree from the
University of Minnesota, after which she
did research work on Milton in Cam
bridge university, England. She was for
eight years a members of the faculty of
Minnesota university, rising from an In
structorship in Anglo-Saxon ' to a full
professorship in English literature.
She Is the author of "The Ballingtons,"
a novel -handling the economic depend
ence of women. She did the introduction
for the Houghton & Mifflin "Alhambra
Tales," arranged by Josephine Brower; 's
director of the research and study de

magazine, department editor of Life and

Women's Clubs and of the committee on

extension committee of the general fed
eration. During this time the federation
has done much in forwarding the national
movement for the study of th Bible

year secretary for the National American
Woman Suffrage association and resigned

The delegation also adopted an address
In support of the candidacy of Mr. Taft
and of the principles outlined by the
Rochester convention, which was pre
sented by Dr. Nicholas Murray Butler
"The delegates from the state of New
York, in conformance -with the expressed
wish of the republican state convention
it Rochester,-wish to impress i-non their
fellow delegates the supreme importance
of the Issue of principle that now con
fronts the party.
"That issue we believe to be whether
or not the republican party shall enter
upon -a campaign pledged to reform
abuses, remove evils, and to effect needed
reforms, without at the same time de
stroying the essential stable and perma
nent popular government.
"We therefore earnestly support the
candidacy of William H. Tai't. wh: up
holds and represents the prlii'lpl's in
which we belike, and we oppose the
candidacy of Theodore Roosi 'til, who by
his own utterances is com.nitt.ed to 'he
overthrow of tnese principles."
There Is no record vote on the adop
tion of this dei'iration, bu. several nega
tives were heard on the viva voce bal
lot. In presenting it Dr. Butler urged
action on the ground that the convention
should be guided by prlnojple rather than
personality In choosing a candidate.
