formation that hla life was In peril. He
told the consul that a number of his ad
herents had been put In jail.
General Diaz was accompanied to the
consulate by Jose Sandoval and Ceclllo
Ocon, who also requested protection for
themselves.
The American consul at once took
steps to have the refugees transferred on
board the gunboat Wheellnr, which was
lylnr In the harbor. The three Mexican
fugitives and Alexander Williams, an
American newspaper man, wero taken
to a boat and hurried on board tho Amer
ican warship, where they were riven ac

The fact that General Diax and two of
his supporters, were refugees on board
the Wheellnr was not discovered by the

The fugitives hesitated for some time

stand In China's history in the same place
as the Boston tea. party stands in New

bank for the regional reserve bank plan
In the administration currency became
apparent today when tho committee be

ure. Discussion was confined to tho cen
tral reserve bank proposal and while no
cte was taken the debate disclosed six
senators for the government controlled
central bank and six for the admlnlstrn

The five republicans on the commit
tee, Senators Weeks, McLean, Nelson,

central bank. They were Joined by Sen

who has opposed the administration in
many of Its provisions. Senators Reed

swung Into line with the other democrats
for the administration plan.
The vote was delayed until tomorrow

the belief tonight that in view of tho op

Luckiest Winner

Albert Erickson, who was the luckiest
of all the Omaha people who tried for n,
home at Uncle Sam's drawing at North
Platte, was much luckier than 'ho ex
pected. Erickson drew No. 7, which will
give him a most valuable farm.
When notified by Tho Bee that he had
drawn No. 7 Erickson was more thsn
surprised. He had gone to North Platte
to register as a lark more than anything
else and because he worked for the
Union Pacific railroad and was' able to
ret free transportation. He is In the of
floe of auditor of freight account.
Erickson is a married man and ha
two children. He lives at 400C Grand.

tunlty which chance ha. thrown In hi.

Veterans Protest
Against Ruling of
the Pension Office
WASHINGTON, Oct. 2S. Iyd by
"Private" John M. Daltell, the Orahd
Army of the Republlo Is atsatling a re
cent order of the commissioner of pen
sions that civil war veterans seeking'
pensions must furnish proofs of their
family name, their employment for the
ten years preceding I860 'and produce a
Bible record of their family. The ob
ecters claim this virtually would annul
the benefits Intended for veterans under
the Sherwood law, which contemplated
Increased pensions under simpler pro
visions. Many deserving veterans would, suffer.
It was contended, by reason of the com
missioner's ruling, for many -would find
It Impossible to comply with the require
ments. This, it "was pointed out, was
especially true of the negro veterans,
many of whom were born In slavery.

Your Salary
Jn these days of the high coat
of living or the cost of high
living, however you may regard,
it, there 1b one central purposa
that guides you, if you are a.
normal, careful person. That
is the idea of economy, of mak
ing every dollar do its full stint
of work.
You may be sure of doing
your utmost along this line if
you will pay attention to the
many opportunities for advan
tageous buying announcer! in
our advertising columns. There
Ib practically nothing that you
buy that is not advertised. And
by studying the advertisements
you may inform yourself at all
times on the subject of what to
buy, where and at what price
to buy it.
The careless person rarely
buys the right thing and us
ually gets lees for his money
than one who goes about his
business with bis eyes open
and bis wits sharpened.
