DIRECT THONEON CREDITS
Fifteen Stores to Be Connected with
Credit Bureau of Betailers.
THOMPSON NAMES COMMITTEES
Hustlrrs for the Anaoclntrtl Iletnll
ers Are Named by the Prestilrnt
for the Yeni SprcUl
By November 1. direct telephone lines
from the credit departments of fifteen
stores In Omaha to the credit bureau of
the Associated Ketailern of umahs. In
the City National bank building are to
be established. This . was decided at a
meeting of tho retailers Thursday night.
The Idea Is that the retailers want quicker
service on the wire between their credit
departments and the- credit bureau, In ol
der that they may not have to wait for
Connections, by central "and for busy
wires, when they are In a hurry to get
information from tho credit department.
Bo far as thn association know3 there
Is .but one city In the United States that
has such service now. That Is Indiana
polls. While there will be but fifteen
such lines established at once, J. W. Met
calfe, secretary of the association, be
lieves It will eventually mean the estab
lishment of thirty-five or forty private
lines. The proposition was recommended
by Charles R. Courtney of the credit
bureau. The proposition and figures of
the telephone company for this work
"were considered and accepted.
President H. A. Thompson of the re
tailors appointed his committees for the
year as follows:

HEARING IS HAD ON,
DISTANCE TARIFF RATES
Omaha railroad freight men who were
at Lincoln before the Railway commis
sion listening to testimony given for and
against the proposition of putting a dis
tance tariff Into effect are of tie opinion
that the opponents of the plan made .a
Jobbers from all of the cities of the
state, say the railroad men, gave testi
mony, showing that while the distance
tariff would not bring about a radical
reduction of freight rates In favor of
any particular point. It would result In
destroying all of the Jobbing centers
ultimately brtngjjig' about small wholesale
establishments In all of the towns of th
state, each with a limited territory.
Drives Wall of Well
Down as the Bottom
of Soil is Dug Away
An Innovation In the form of well dig
ging has been introduced to Omaha by
John Rlcketts, who Is sinking a well for
the Evans Model Steam laundry. Instead
of digging the well and then building the
wall Rlcketts Is building tho wall first
and then allowing It to sink Into the
Tho wotl Is being dug to furnish the
laundry with water with which to clean
the clothes. It will sink about seventy
feet Into the ground to bed rock, when It
will be Impossible to go dry. The first
thirty feet of the wall will be thirteen
Inches and the remaining forty feet will
be eight Inches. About fifty-five feet
have been dug already, but the hardest
part will be In digging the other fifteen
The wall Is constructed on a circular
steel shoe, that Is built like a wedge. Guide
posts arc run down the sldo to keep tho
well straight and the wedges of the shoe
cut about a foot wider than the wall In
order to prevent sticking. However, sev
eral times the wall sticks when water
surges to tho surface, and It Is necessary
to keep a thirty-horse power stx-foot
cylinder pump going all tho tlnio. Even
then the mud which surges up with the
water clogs tho pump and makes it
necessary to tako the cylinder apart nnd
clean It of the mud. It Is a tedious proc
ess to clean tho pump and thus delays
the work considerably.
Water was struck at twenty feet, and
ever since tho digging has been a very
slow process. The well Is stuck at pres
ent and Rlcketts Is using Jacks to force
tho wall down. According to Manager
Segrist of tho laundry the wall will bo
forced to bedrock if they aro compelled
to lift tho building with tho Jockscrews.
When the well Is Installed water can
be pumped Into tho laundry for 'about 3
or 4 cents per 1,000 gallons. The expense
will be less, however, as the steam that
drives the pump will be uwd to drv the
clothes. The water Is more preferable to
city water, as It Is clear and cleanVfter
sitting through the 200 or 300 feet of
quicksand that lies between the level of
the water and bedrock.
