Union Pacific is

Of the articles of Incorporation of the
Hastings & Northwestern is taken to
mean that Hastings Is to be put on the
Union Pacific map within a very short
time if the business men and ethers of
that Nebraska city get busy.
, The Hastings & Northwestern, as it
now exists, la an auxiliary company of
the Union Pacific organised solely by
Union Pacific men and officered by them.
Its financing will be taken care of by the
Union Pacific, and when the line Is com
pleted between the two points and ready
lor operation, will be turned over.
Surveys for the Hastings & North'
western were completed about five years
ago, and the road would have been built
Immediately thereafter, but at that time
there was a tendency to a belief that the
Union Pacific had to get into Hastings
and the citizens of the town were not
disposed to want any concessions, or
even help to secure the terminal facili
ties. Now, it is understood, that an
agreement between the town people and
those . of the railroad has practically
been reached and that work Is soon to
Asked when work would begin on the
new line. President Mohler of the Union
Pacific refused to make any . statement,
merely remarking, "Watch and you may
see the dirt fly."
At Hastings the proposed road will con
nect with the St. Joseph A Grand Island.
The survey runs in almost "a straight
line northwest and. through a fine agri
cultural country, striking the main line
of the Union Pacific at the little town of
Gibbon, thirteen miles east of Kearney.
The building of the gap between Hast
ings and Gibbon will give the Union Pa
cific a direct connection between its Ne
braska and Kansas main lines, something
that it does not have at this time, except
in a roundabout way. '

Weather Man Has No Chance
There's one Omaha man who's always
ready for a rainy day. Stanhope Flem
inghe's the one. He always carries an
umbrella. You'll never catch him without
it He carries it morning, noon and
night; in hot weather and cold; in sun
and snow and rain. If the elements war
rant, the rain protector's open; If not
it's shut Anyway donner and blltsen or
not Stanhope's ready and the" weather
man is yet to be found who can put It
over on him. . '
Some of his cronies say that Stanhope
carries his umbrella to be ready as much
for the' holdup man as for the weather
man; others, that he inherits the um
brella habit from his Uncle Si down Po
dunk way. But these are unwary indi
viduals who have been caught in the rain.

REASON FOR CHANGE NOT GIVEN
Wallace la Sought la Chicago to Give
Testimony Here In the Elec

M. Wallace, known to the police as
"Red Mike". Wallace, has been appointed
deputy sheriff to succeed J. R. Mahoney,
resigned, by Sheriff Felix J. McShane,
jr. Notice of the change In the personnel
of the sheriff's staff was filed with Henry
E. Ostrom,. clerk of the county board, but
the reason could not be learned.
Sheriff . McShane could not be located
by reporters. Chief Deputy Foster re
fused to discuss the subject further than
to say he knew nothing about it except
that Mahoney had resigned and Wallace
had been appointed, and he supposed Ma
honey quit because he ,got tired of thu
Wallace is one of the men visited in
Chicago by Sheriff McShane, Charles &
Fanning and Johnny Scheff last spring
when seeking men to testify before the
grand Jury about alleged election frauds.
Wallace was requested to return to
Omaha, his former home, and testify, but
instead he gave his signature to an af
fidavit which was read to the grand Jury.
Has Police Court Record.
Avter the indictment or several Judges
and clerks of election on charges of elec
tion frauds Wallace returned. Wallace
has a police court record.
Mahoney' s experience as a deputy sher
iff was not altogether pleasant. On one
occasion as a participant in a street fight
both he and the other combatant were
arrested, ind overindulgence in liquor
was one excuse.
Superintendent Carson recently ad
dressed to Sheriff McShane a letter in
which reference was made to alleged im
proper conduct of the sheriff's deputies,
but no names were mentioned. According
to Carson the deputies were in Concordia
park drinking beer with women who were
not their wives.

Peg? Demonstrates to Council How
Housewives Are Cheated.
HONEST MEN WANT ORDINANCE
Sealer of WeVrhta and Measures Has
Little Tilt When Matter Is
Brought for Dlscnsalon
Before City Council. 1
John Orant Pegg, city sealer of weights
and measures, carried a wagon load ot
measures and scales into the council
chamber and demonstrated how a crooked
peddler could cheat a housekeeper who
hadn't been raised on the farm.
J. M. Macfarland, an attorney for the
peddlers who are objecting to the pas
sage of the weights ordinance now
pending before the council, said it would
drive the peddlers out of business to
pass the ordinance. .
Asks for the Names.
Pegg answered "Give me the list of
twenty-five or thirty peddlers who raised
$100 to got you to fight this ordinance
and I'll name the peddlers I've arrested
for selling short weights."!
Pegg declared he didn't represent any
body but the people who were cheated.
Joe Becker, secretary of the Grocer's as-
saciation, which is advocating the or
dinance, said his association had been
swamped with requests to get the ordin
With the use of some of the measures
Pegg had confiscated the city sealer re
vealed the tricks of the peddlers' trade.

ten bushels of potatoes to sell, will give

erty, on which Mr. Savidge expects to
erect an invalids' home. The property,
consisting of about two acres, beautifully
located, was bought some time ago by
Rev. Savidge, and there was a balance

price ever paid in the history of the
South Omaha trade yesterday morning. A

Each steer in the shipment averaged
1.413 pounds, the returns amounting to
$136.50 per head.
The highest price previously nald on
the South Omaha market was recorded
at $9.50 only two or three weeks asm.
leaving today's top an absolute claim on
first honors. Old timers at the yards do
not expect to see much higher, most ot
them asserting that the demand tor beef
at war-time figures is too narrow and
uncertain to warrant further advances.
Western Cattle lunnn.
One ot the remarkable features about
the $9.65 cattle appeared In the fact that
they were all branded westerns of the
Hereford and Shorthorn strains. A few
years ago stock of western origin was
generally nothing to brag about most
rangers having long horns and poor con
formation. Lately, however, consider

Leaves Union Pacific
William Whittaker, assistant attorney
for the Union Paclflo and for twenty
five years connected with the company's
legal department at headquarters, has
resigned to engage In private practice.
He will probably open offices In the city,
and with his wide and extensive acquaint
ance his friends believe that he wilt do a
large business right from the start.
When little more than a boy and shortly
after his graduation from law school Mr.
Whittaker associated himself with the
Union Pacific legal department, entering
the company employ as a law clerk. By
close application to business his rise was
rapid, subsequently becoming chief clerk,
then special attorney and later having
charge of the legal matters connect'ed
with claims, having -a large number of
clerks under him. In connection with the
settling and disposition of claims, to a
great extent he looked after the com
pany's local legal business.
During, his years of service with thj
Union Paclflo legal department Mr. Whit
taker had his legal training under such
distinguished lawyers as John M. Thurs
ton, W. R. Kelly, John N. Baldwin and
the present general solicitor of the Union
Pacific, N. H. Loomls.
