Representatives of South Omaha pack
ing houses and the Mock yards district
net with the Water board yesterday aft
ernoon to protest ag-alnst the increase In
water rates from 4 to t cents per 1,000
gallons, which three consulting engineers
hired by the Water board say la Justi
fiable. The packers said ttay would be willing
to pay ( cents snd believed that was all
the service Was worth to them. R. C.
Cole, representing Armour, said the pack
ers could build a plant and pump their
own water for 4 rents.
President E. Buckingham of the stock
yards, H. 0. Edward of Swift and Com
pany, H. 8. Culver of Morris A- Co., W. I
Selby, with Swift snd Company and also
representing Morris A Co., and Amos
Henely, representing Cudahy, attended
the meeting snd protested against the
Prof. O. V. P. Stout of the University
of Nebraska. M. L. Hoi man of St. Louis
arid Wynkoop Kleretead of Kmrnm City,
the Water board's consulting engineers,
were unanimous In the report they sub
mitted that to furnish water to the stock
yards and packing housa at less than
t cents per l.OuQ gallons Would be for less
than cost, ., ' , '
President Buckingham and the packing
house representatives said they would be
willing to pay the cost -of "pumping the
water the twelve miles from Florence to
South OnuUia, including the depredation,
the cost of maintenance and the office
expense for that section of the main
Watsr , Commissioner ' Hows-ll declared
such a scheme was not feasible because
It would ultimately reduce the board to a
position where It Would have to have a
board of experts to compute th cost of
delivering water; to each Individual con
sumer, and make a charge based on up
that. ' V
John L Webster, the board's attorney,
laid President Woodbury of the old water
company Intended to Increase the price of
water furnished the packers as soon as
the contract made fourteen years ago
Engineer Hoi man said that Is what
ought to have been done as th old com
pany was, In his opinion, furnishing water
to South Omaha at less than cost, the
extra' amount being paid by Omaha consumers.
As the stock yards and packing houses
consume about 7.000.000 gallons of water
dally, which Is nearly a third- Of , the
amount pumped by the Florence statics
the water board and the representatives
of the South Omaha Interests agreed that
some' sort of a sliding scale could be ar
ranged and the case settled without
resort to the courts.
On remedv of the situation suggested
was the construction of a reservoir in
Hnuth Omaha that would hold enough
water to supply ths stock ysrds district
during the day, the reservoir being filled
at night when the pressure Is high, owing
to ths decreased consumption.
Mr. Howe said that It was costing
about a year to "such the water out
of the mains" after It had been pumped
to South Omaha, The pressure Is so low.

COLON, Panama, Aug. 30.-A force of
787 United States marines arrived at
Cristobal today on the transport Prairie.
They lmmedlaiely entrained for Panama
where the will embark on the cruiser
California for Corlnto.
WASHINGTON. Tug. M.-The 750
marines who sailed from the Philadelphia
navy yard last week tor Nicaragua are
due at Colon tomorrow. They were
transported across the isthmus of Panama
on a special train and embarked on the
big armored cruiser California, due at
Panama tonight or tomorrow morning.
The CaUfornia is to leave Panama Im
mediately, perhaps touching at San Juan
Del Sur, to reinforce a small marine con
tingent left at that place by the cruiser
Denver, to make sure that the Important
cable station is not closed by the rebels.
All messages from the American legation
at Managua and the American naval
commanders at Corlnto must come to
San Juan Del Sur In order to reach ths
Th California should reach Corlnto
Monday night If it covers the 630 miles at
top speed. Rear Admiral Sutherland has
already announced his purpose of send
ing to Managua at least 500 of the
marines It carries, and the remainder
probably, will be used to patrol the seventy-two
miles of railroad connecting the
capital with the sea. These reinforcements-
will bring , the total American
strength in. Nicaragua up to more than
2,000 men ashore and; about 1,000 blue
jackets on ships' In the coaital waters on
both sides 'of the country. The naval
commanders are satisfied that this force
will meet present needs, but should the
rebels offer more formidable resistance
than Is expected to th execution of the
policy of protection to American lives
and property, then the Tenth Infantry,
held in light marching order on the Isth
mus since President Taft revoked the
order sending It to 'Nicaragua, probably
will be moved after all.
It Is believed that the rebels will at
tempt to stop the movement of American
forces along, the wrecked railroad. The
greatest obstruction Is expected to be
at Leon, which seems to .be th seat of
th rebel operations. The difficulties ex
pected to be encountered there probably
will be relieved by an American fores
from Managua, working Its way down
the railroad tracks toward Leon. This
wlU place the rebel headquarters between
two American forces.
One cause of concern to the Stste de
partment Is the condition of about 125
Americans at Matagalpa In the interior
of the republic. Communication to that
section Is extremely difficult, The last
heard from them told of critical condi
tions. The only way or communicauuu
ith the American planters is by courier.

Parcels Post to Be
Ready First of Year
WASHINGTON, Aug. 30. Announce
ment was made by Postmaster General
Hitchcock tonight that the Postoffice de
partment would be In readiness on Janu
ary 1, 1913, to put Into general operation
th recently authorised parcels post sys
The postal express business, which
must be organised within th next four
months, . will extend over . more than
1000,000 miles of rural delivery and star
routes and will cover, in its various
ramifications, all systems ot transporta
tion of parcels now utilized by private
express companies. .
Tbe details of the parcels post system
will be worked out by a series of com
mittes composed of officers and experts
of the . department under the personal
direction of Mr. Hitchcock.
"First of all," said Mr. Hitchcock to
night, "must be prepared a classification
et ths articles that can be accepted for
transportation by parcels post. The law
admits to the mails practically ail kinds
of merchandise that can be transported
safely, Including products ot the farm and
garden as well as factory products, pro
viding such articles do not weigh mora
than eleven pounds nor exceed seventy
two inches In combined length and girth.
Tbe present equipment ot the mall serv
ice Is not adapted to the carriage of such
merchandise, and therefore new equip
ment must be provided. It is likely we
shall employ extensively hampers similar
to those used la foreign countries in han
dling parcels poet maU."
Other problems Include the printing of
new stamps and a plan of Identification
