Ileen nn Exception.
Postal receipts for the month of July,
IflJ, eclipse those of any corresponding
month In the history ot the Omaht post
office and show an' increase over July,
IflJ, ot 17 per cent. The gross receipts
for the month Just closed were IIIM.KS.I,
as compared with 189.7O0.M for the same
month last year.
The actual Increase In receipts for
July, 1913, over tho corresponding month
In 1912 is $15,331,1$.
Ordinarily July Is one of the lightest.
If not the lightest, month ot postal re
ceipts In Omaha. However, no lull seems
to have been In evidence during the last
month. Parcel post continues to hold
the receipts Up considerably, but besides
the receipts for this class of rcattcr the
increase Is unusual.

of the street 'car system through that

expression regarding the early possibility
of service to that locality.
Mr. Wattles referred to the unsettled
situation regarding the seven-for-a-quar-

laid the blame for holding up new street
railway construction. Until that was defi
nitely a closed issue he saw little en

SATURN REM TO LEAYE
Boat's Trips from Omaha Dock Said
to Be Over,
Another quiet time on water
InUtnntlnn Conic iron. Ownrn of
Vraael that" Titer Intend to Drop
Down the Hirer nt an l'.nrlj-Dnte,
'Oh Take Me. to That Dear Old Buslines
Hhore," was tho tltlo of one of the rag-
lime selections-played Imt nlKht y the
orchestra on the steamboat Baturn.
Late.' last night. It was unofficially an
nounced that the boat, stands a mighty
fine show of see'.nic- "that old Huannee
shore," and that In a short while. It
was said' that the Saturn niado the
last excursion trip out of th port 'f
Omaha last nleht, and that today or to
morrow the craft will drop down the
Missouri to Kansas City.
Whether the Baturn will ensago In
the excursion business there and operate
as in former days could not be learned,
as neither of the proprietors could be lo
cated last night.
The trip up the river was a quiet one.
Less than three score persons paid their
quarters to make the ride and these spent
the evening- danalng or watching the
water from the top deck.
When the boat landeo, the scene of the
night before was repeated. Not a dis
pute or disorder of any kind occurred,
and the squad of police sent to 'Eighth
and , Douglas streets at the time the
boat' landed found themselves utterly use
less. Bheriff McShano had two deputies on
duty on board the boat last night, for
the first time since the Baturn has
been docking here.
