Being Sung Abroad
The letter carriers who were enter
tained In their national convention by
Omaha were very well pleased with
Omaha hospitality, as witness the fol
lowing paragraph from an article by
Charles H. 8cogglns of Oakland, Cel.,
published In the Postal Record: -
Never In all of my experience as a na
tional convention microbe have I seen a
more whole-souled welcome tendered by
a city than that tendered the delegates
to the Omaha convention by the gover
nor, mayor and postmaster. Vest less,
with wilted collars and steaming facs.
red from the summer's heat, these men
stood before us in all the sincerity of
plain Informal manhood and gave ua a
welcome that one could not but feet
proud of, and the honesty snd sincerity
that shone from their eyes told us better
than words that they were glad to hare
ua with them. Well I know that many
an Omaha carrier's heart will beat in
sadness when their present blg-henrWd
postmaster must step aside.

CAR SHORTAGE IS
Receipts Four Hundred Can and All
Roads Have All They Can Pos
GRAIN IS FINDING READY SALE
The freight car shortage starts in
this week In a most acute form, with
every indication that it Is going to
keep on increasing. Qmataa grain re
ceipts yesterday were around 400
cars, with eqaully as great at the
other grain markets.
Railroad men figure that In hand
ling the cars In the most expeditious
manner it takes at least a week for a
freight car to make a round trip, and
as a rule the time Is about as long
attain. Thus it Is easy to be seen that
the Omaha market alone requires an
Immense number of cars to handle
the grain In its trade territory.
What Is true of Omaha Is equally true
of Chicago. Kansas City, St. Louts, Min
neapolis, Duluth, Wnlnipeg and the other
big grain markets, so that besides the
cars that are bringing the grain to the
markets, there Is an equal number tak
ing It to the sea ports and an equally
great number enroute back to the loading
Every road operating Into Omaha Is
making every possible effort to get cars
out mto the grain territory and at the
same time every road finds Itself short
Receipts Are Hravy,
Right now the bulk of the grain com
ing to Omaha passes through the ele
vators here. Is blended and then goes out
on the milling In transit rate, destined
for gulf ports. Receipts are about the
heaviest 1A the history of the ' market,
so far as wheat Is concerned, the grain

Diogenes to Find tho
volume of the grain business transacted.
Mlsaourl Pacific, Rock Island and Bur
lington officials representing the roads
that do the bulk of grain business to the
gulf ports assert that the export demand
Is the heaviest ever known, and that at
Galveston and New Orleans scores of ves
sels are lying at the docks or out In the
harbors watting to load out. At this time
the greater portion of the shipments are
goiisj,- to England and France, though
Germany Is able to now and then get
out a cargo.
American owners of the wheat and
other grains going abroad are not taking
any chances on losses. It Is asserted
that In every Instance as soon as a boat
ts loaded and before It welgha anchor the
cargo of grain la paid for and the owner
I has the money In his pocket.

in the tJnited States.
BIG INCREASE IN BUSINESS
The Omaha postofftce handles par
cel post packages at a lower cost than
any other city In the United States,
namely about one-fourth of a cent
This fact was established by the
semi-annual count of packages in the
fifty largest cities of the country.
The further fact was established
that there has been a tremendous In
crease In the volume of parcel post
business and, while the sice limit of
packages has been constantly in
creased, the cost of handling has at
the same time decreased.
The semi-annual count la made during
the first fifteen days of October.
The Increase in tho number of pack
ages handled at the local office is in
dicated by these figures made during the
first fifteen days of October each year
that the parcel post hns been in operation:

OTHER CITIES WANT HA USER
Arthur Mauser, alias Duck Weaver,
t.nder arrest in Indianapolis, .and be
lieved to be the ape-man wanted in
Omaha for numerous crimes, is
charged with killing W. II. Smith of
Cmaha, in an information prepared
ry County Attorney Magney and filed
in police court. The murder was
committed October 16 at Thirtieth
and Dodge streets.
The Information charges Ilauser
with first degree murder. The pen
r.'ty if conviction is secured will be
f'eath or life imprisonment, accord
ing to the decision of the Jury. The
fact that the crime was committed
during a robbery renders it necessary
for the state to prove only that
Ilauser was the man who held up
Smith and that he fired the shot
which killed him.
Ml" Mater Only Witness.
Mis Grace Plater, 21 years old, whom
Mr. Smith was acrompsnvlng to her
home, was the only witness of the murder
of Smith and upon her testimony the
state bases Its hope of conviction.
Although Ilauser Is wanted for many
Climes In numerous cities of the middle
west, local officials believe that the man
can be brought here for trial, since a
murder charge Is usually given precedence
over others of less serious nature.
Ilauser Is also wanted here for the rob.
bery of Mr. and Mrs. V. T. Ha use and
their guests. They and numerous other
victims of the ape-man will be able to
Identify Ilauser, It la believed, as the
holdup who committed a series of crimes
