'I 111, OMAHA 8UI)A Bbh. MuMUWltt !), 191,1. 9-A S ) SHERIFF'S POSSE FACES MOB Governor of West Virginia Asked to Send Troops to Kanowha. AWAIT DETAILS OF SKIRMISH Striking Ttml Miners Are tn Anitrr Monti llrrnuir of Shntn Mrcd lnl Cnmp from I'iimch Iter Trnlm CHAIILKSTON, W. Va., Feb. S. -Governor Glasscock. Adjutant General D. D. Elliott nnd other state officers awaited with anxiety this morning Information from Mucklow concerning the fate of Sheriff Bonner Hill and twenty-five deputies of Kanawha county, who at an early hour, were reported to be facing an angry mob of striking miners In the little mountain village. With Sheriff Banner Hill and his men were Captain K Guy Levy and a small party of mine guards, and It was their belief that they could maintain their position for an In definite period. They are armed with modern rifles and a rapid fire gun. Sheriff 11111 asked the governor early today for troops, but at the executive office It was stated that no action would bo taken until the details of last night's rioting had been received here. Significance Is attached to the fact that two miles from the scene of last night's skirmish Is located one of the largest camps of striking miners In the Kanawha coal field. Shooting from the train, nttacked on the Chesapeake & Ohio railroad during the night, was In the direction of the camp, and It was feared if any of the women and children had been hurt the sheriff and his men would bo unable to restrain the angry men, as they outnumbered the posse ten to one and are said to be well armed. Martial law proclamation, under which troops were sent Into the coal fields last year, Is still In force. The legislature is lu session and It was rumored hero this morning that the governor would confer with some of the leaders before answer ing the call of Sheriff Hill for troops. At U o'clock today Sheriff Hill reported to the military authorities hero that he and his men had been unable to enter tho miners' camp, and up to that time had been unable to ascertain whether the firing last night had resulted In death or Injury to any of the campers. Tho miners and their sympathizers occupy strong positions, guarding all approaches to the camp. The Chesapeako & Ohio railroad sent a number of men to the scene to pro tect Us property. Governor Glasscock has not yet acted on the sheriffs request for troops. They Never Lcnrn. Draw poker is a flno game, full of skill and science, and the man who knows what to draw and when to do It is the fellow who gets tho money. Harry Dixon, the author, was explaining one day that every man who makes a practice of try ing to fill a four-card flush is doomed to bankruptcy. "Thero is no use talking,'' said Dixon. "Drawing to a four-flush Is bad busi ness. I knew an old man down In Mississippi who lost three plantations he lost by drawing and never filling the flush, and lie threw away the third by finally making the flush against a lull hoube."

It Is not the fine, light food to which we. Dro accustomed, but it is more nutritious, Is capable of being kept longer and can be transported with greater ease. "As bread had to be baked for the malo population In time of peace," says tho writer, "really there were no m-ire mouths to feed in time of war. Th males wero simply on the move.

MANY SHIPMENTS GO SOUTH Plantations Find Grains from This Locality Particularly Nourish ing ii nil Hend Here for Tlirlr Supplies. The grain business done in and out of Omaha during January has convinced officials and representatives of the Omaha-Chicago lines that if they are to remain In tho grain carrying game, they must form close traffic arrangements with the present gulf roads, or else the companies they represent, must build Into that section of the country, thus affording them outlets to the new south ern market. During January, according to the report of the Omaha Oraln exchange, a total of 6,304 cars of grain came to the Omaha market. This was divided up as follows: Wheat, 1,311 cars; corn, 3,030 .cars; oats, 86 cars; rye, 85 cars; barley, 33 cars. During the same period the shipments ag gregated 3.NS2 cars. There were 934 cars of wheat, 1,972 cars of corn, 1,008 cars of oats, nine enrs of rye and thirty cars of barley. Of ull the shipments during tho month, 80 per cent went south, the bal ance being divided ubout equally between Chicago and Minneapolis. What grieves the representatives of the Omaha-Chlcago-Mlnneapolls lines most. Is the iact that they get the short haul on the grain from the cast, and north and the southern lines get the long haul of 1.C00 to 1,W0 miles out. This condition has not only applied during the last month, but covers the whole of last year. Most Goes South, This loss of business on the long haul is where the roads figure on making their profits, especially where proportion ate rates maintain as they do tn most of the territory tributary to the Omaha market. In figuring up the grain busi ness of the Omaha roads, the records show that qne of the Omaha-Chicago lines during January brought to Omaha 2,001 cars of grain and was unable to get but forty-two put. Another road brought In an even 1,000 cars during the month, but was unable to secure only ten east and north bound. On the southern business thero was one road that brought In but one car of grain from the south, but having gulf connec LEO. A. HOFFMANN The Undertaker founder of the Modern Funeral Home Service on account Quality on account tions, It secured 311 out. Another lino operating Into tho south, brought thirty cars of grain Into Omaha and during the samo period. It handled 1,312 out, dis tributing all of It at points below St. Louis. Oninha Is Growing: Grain Market, When tho Omaha grain market was es tablished nine years ago, railroad men all laughed at tho Idea of grain from hero ever moving south. Chicago and Minneapolis were then tho logical mar kets to which shipments were sent. It went to Chicago for reconslgnment and export, and to Minneapolis for milling. Nothing went south until some three years later. Then the roods running tn that direction and having southern con nections commenced to build up the mar kot, which continued to grow rapidly, until now, when they aro taking about four-fifths of the Omaha shipments, which come here from Nebraska, Colo rado, Wyoming, South Dakota and Iowa. Both railroad nnd grain men contend that the southern market for tho fall wheat of this central went Is naturally to the south and that It Is bound to ex pand as the years pass. Want Omaha Wheat. Two months ago the wheat sent south was for export through gulf ports, but now the greater portion going thore Is for milling purposes and feed. The south has discovered that the wheat from the Omaha territory makes the best flour In tho world nnd they are bound to have It. With rcforonce to corn, rye nnd barley.
