Gurdon W. Wattles, president of tlio
street railway company, told the execu
tive committee of the Commercial club
yesterday noon that tho automobile deal'
x and owners of the city are back
of the mote, to get the cars stopped on
the near Bide of tho street and that
the street car company would hesitate
In being- dictated to by them.
Mr, Wattlea said that the communica
tions of the Commercial club, which con
tained approbation of the move to stop
cars on the near aide by the Automobile
Auto Motor club, the city officials and
others had not reached him until re
cently, when he returned from the west
and that ho had not had time to con
sider the proposition as to It was thus
put up to him. He cited examples of
other cities, where cars stop on the far
side and declared that tho Omaha street
railway company did not want to stop

the confusion such a change would cause.
Ho said that It would take at least
five years for the company employes
and tho people of Omaha to get used
to tho change and the Inconvenience and
confusion consequent of that wpuld make
It unworthy of the change.
Debate Wnxeii AVnrni.
While the meeting of the Btreet car
company officials and the executive com
mittee members was entirely affable, Mr.
Wattles and John L. McCugue, -who
represented the Commercial club munici
pal affairs committee and the public util
ities committee in the propostlon of
changing tho stopping points of cars,
placed considerable emphasis on their re
spective points In the argument.
Mr. McCague named over a list of
about forty-five cities with which the
club has communicated and cited five
out of the number where the street cars
are stopped on tho far side of tho street.
Ho also had statistics on accidents, which
lie brought n to emphasize his stand.
Because of the fact that communica
tions had been sent to Mr. Wattles' office,
while he was absent from the city, the
executive committee of the Commercial
club referred the proposition of chang
ing street car stopping points back to
tho munclpal affairs and public utilities
committees, without action upon It. The
latter committees will be allowed to take
.whatever steps are found necessary for
the chango or against It, together with
the question of owl car service In Omaha.

Starts Wednesday, Nov. 15 at This Store
Each season we accumulate a considerable number of broken
lots. These we offer at reduced prices in January or July. This
season's business has been very brisk, owing, no doubt, to a great
.improvement in our buying methods, a far better selected stock
than heretofore, which have made the small lots accumu
late much faster than usual. We have decided to throw pre
cedent to the winds and offer these to the buying public now
when the season is at its height and the need is most apparent.
We now offer several thousand of
our famous Quality Suits and Over
coats at ridiculously low prices.
In considering the merits of this sale, yon should
consider the class of garments this store handles and
not lose sight of the fact that wo never sell "shoddy"
clothing that theso aro not specially purchased gnr
ments marked at fictitious prices and thou reduced
for special salo (?) purposes. Also remember that
wo handle no "job lots" or "seconds," that the gar
ments arc all this year's models, and that the most
careful dresser can come here and procure a strictly
stylish suit or ovorcoajt of standard quality at a price
far below that usually asked for the commonest
kind of clothing.
F. S . KING , THE
Lead to an Inquiry
GRAND ISLAND, Neb., Nov. -(Spe
cial. ) Tho police department Is mysti
fied over tho actions of a stranger who
was In tho city tho latter part of lust
week, and In connection therewith tho
reports appearing In an AHoona, Pa.,
paper of last Friday. The Btranger. who
gavo the name of Gill, "assistant supei
vlsor," telegraphed to Altoona parties
relating to the death of Jacob J. Kelnz,
as tho result-of falling from a Pullman
palace car. No one fell from a palaco
car In this vicinity and no death of any
one else, by accident has happened here.
The police officials of Altoopa have wired
here and the local police have answered
that thero was no foundation for the
story. The Altoona paper further quotes
local parties as having telegraphed the
fact of tho death whereas such local par
ties absolutely know nothing about It.
The man filing the telegram here was so
nervous at the time that the telegraph
oporator was compelled to write tho
message 'for him, but Insisted on the man
signing It. Further Information Is being
awaited at Altoona and tho local officers
are Inclined to the belief that an attempt
may be on foot grossly to deceive some
one or possibly to defraud.

0'MALLEY WINS CONTEST IN
GRAND ISLAND, Neb., Nov. 2. (Spe
cial.) A net change of 100 votes In favor
of O'Malley was the result of the re
count on the Stusser-O'MalJey vote for
representative. In gross figures errors
running to 228 were found In twenty-one
precincts. The recount settles the tie.
but rather acutely unsettles the public
mind as to the accuracy of the count.
The gains made by O'Malley on the re
count are largely but not wholly attributed
to the failure of the election boards to
count all of the socialist vote fur O'Mal
ley, Mr. Slussed will not contest. There
are no other vo'tcs for county office close
