Despondent over the waywardness of
her U-year-old son, Mr. Mary New
meyer. aged 53 years, wandered away
from her home at Twenty-rourth and Q
streets Saturday night armed with a
loaded revolver. Her relatives fear that
the woman's mind may have becomo un
balanced by worry over her son and that
she may have made away with herself.
Filled with anxiety over the continued
absence of her mother, a daughter ot
the missing woman called upon Chief of
Police John Brlggs last ntglit and sought
tli assistance of the police.
According to tho daughter Mrs. New
meyer has Worried over the disrespect
ful conduct of her sort; who Is hut 16
years of age. The police say he has
unbalanced his mother's mind by his way
wardness and defiance of parental author
ity. On Saturday the missing woman
seemed to have lost all hope of winning
back her son's obedience.

Denials and admissions on the part of
men conversant with the situation be
tween the hog speculators at the Union
Stock Tarda and the four packing com
panies, who are alleged to have entered
into a working agreement to drive the
speculators out of business, were brought
forth yesterday as a sequel to the story
published yesterday In the Omaha Bee ex
clusively. It Is admitted that publicity
of the conditions was the last thing ex
pected or desired at this time. One of the
speculators seen yesterdoy stated that
things had been going from bad to worse
for the "small fry" speculators. Others
insisted that the whole matter would be
amicably settled. Still another specula
tor persisted In his refusal to admit tho
existence of a boycott or to discuss the
matter In any way. It Is expected that
there will bo some development of tho
situation today as the speculators' are
said to be determined to fight the situa
tion. One of tho most prominent attor
neys In tho state has offered his services
to certain nf the spcculntors In case of a
court battle. It Is not expected, however,
that the matter will get beyond the reach
of an amicable agreement.

Naming the New Hotel
Would suggest ,-NewjTnha"'for our new
Douglas street hotel. Of course you un.
derMand that "Maha" Is the original
designation or rather Indian name ot the
Omaha tribe. ' D. B, ALLAN.
Would suggest as name for the new
hotel "La Francis," In honor ot the
mother of the three Brandels boys, her
name being Fanny. She raised and
trained these boys that have done so
much for Omaha, Why not? This name
sounds good, is dignified and is used by
mauy nationalities and Is easy to re.
member by all. MRS. W. R. DAVIS.
If I were buldlng the new hotel for my
self, I would put my own name on it, as
did Pax ton. Rome Miller and Her, but
when It comes to naming a hotel that Is
built b) a stock company it Is entirely
different, bo therefore let me suggest
an American name. The Hotel Omaha.
In naming the new hotel proposed for
Omaha, I herewith submit the name
"Hotel Kendels." This is a combination
of the two names ot the men who made
the hotel a possibility, public sentiment
being In favor ot honoring them In ths
