Into n Larr.
Twelve men are working today In the
Omaha postoffice who have been In the
postal service for thirty years or more,
the average length of their service In
that department being nearly thirty
seven years each, and though some of the
nn are reaching tho age of four score
years, none of them has' even a prospect
X retiring on a pension, unless a bill
now pending before congress Is passed.
Many of tho larger corporations havo
mado n. provision for tho automatic re
tirement of their older employes. All In
stitutions have been urged to do so by
various social welfare boards, at well as
by the employes themselves, yet the gov
ernment usually progressive In pther di
rections, has so far failed to recognise
any right of rctlrcmeht In Its own em
ployes In the civil service.
Many of theso men nre hardly ablo to
perform the easier duties which are as
signed to them, yet the department under
the civil ser.vlce law holds these men In
the service until they voluntarily retire,
or die. The service must retain them,
and younger men, anxious for promotion,
ready to fill their places and capablo of
doing the work are held back by the
act that no provision has over been made
for tho retirement of the veterans of the
postal department, who hold their posi
tions under tho. civil service law.

To Investigate the
Status .of Omaha
as Supply Depot
Omaha business men are anxious to
learn definitely what Is to be the future
status of Omaha as a location for the
United States army supply station. W.
F. Baxter who leaves Sunday on a busl
ness trip to New York is to make a
side trip to Washington while east to
oiscuss tne, jnatter of Omaha's supply
depot with the War department. An or
der signed some time ago stated that
Forts Itiley, Leavenworth, Des Moines
and Rock Island arsenal were not, to bo
supplied rrom Omaha, beginning next
summer. It stated that the two former
are to be supplied from St. Louis and the
two latter from Chicago.
Omaha business men were surprised at
the order at the time and Informed their
senators so. Later the Commercial club
received word from Senator Hitchcock
that ho had secured the temporary sus
pension of the order In so far as It ap
plied to Forts Itiley and Leavenworth, at
least temporarily until a further lnves

so that teams can pass on its floor.
