for the Xmas Rush
Postmaster Wharton has decided to
avoid a Christmas Jam In tha Omaha
poeto fries this year. Ha says there Is
no sense In having Chrlstmaa packagss
and Chrlstmaa cards delayed three or
four days, as they usually are,
"We will work the postoffloo clerks
from twelve to fourteen hours a iy all
next week," ha aald, "Instead of their
usual eight. I have arranged for the
automobile delivery trucks used In the
parcel post service to work till 10 o'clock
every night Instead of qMlttlng at 4 p. m.
as they do now.
"However," concluded the postmaster,
"we shall not work on Sunday. I think
everything will be light up to time so
that clerks and carriers can be free that
day to attend divine services."
Tha extra work Is welcomed by practi
cally all tha workers, because it means
a substantial bit of extra Christinas
money In their pay envelope.
"The Christmas mall this year Is
much heavier already than at this time
last year," said Mr. Wharton, "though
there la a marked falling off in foreign
mall,, Tha great Increase In the parcel
post 'business mora than .offsets the loss
In tha foreign mail." '
In this connection it is noteworthy that,
while parcel post packages are not taken
at parcel poat rates to Oermany, Aus
tria, Hungary,- Turkey, Belgium and
northern Franoe, pack sees rsn be sent
to all these countries at lotter ratea
cents for tha first ounce and t cents
for each additional ounce.
Omaha is soon to have a real bay
The Commercial club has definitely
thrown its support to such a move
ment, and has decided to appoint a
committee to work out the details
of starting such an institution.
This is to mean a system of track
age where bay can be bandied in
Omaha. It is to mean a traffic de
partment that will look after the
interests of the hay people In the
matter of freight rates, claims, and
many other details of this kind.
It la to mean further, tha establishment
of a system of regular Inspection and
grading of hay that comes In. Thua hay
will be sold aa No. 1, t. i. 4 and so on.
according to the way It survives tha In
pectlon and grading.
In short, the hay market la to hold the
aamo relation to tha hay industry of the
state as the grain exchange holds to the
grain business of this state and this
agricultural section. ,
renter of Hay Territory.
Millions of tons of hay are raised In
the trade territory or territory tributary
to Omaha, yet ridiculously little of that
hay la sold directly on tha Omaha mar
ket. This is because there has never
been an organised hay market here where
producers could expect to get tha kind of
treatment they are entitled to in a big
Tha result Is that hundreds of thous
snds of tons of hay Is annually shipped
right through Omaha to Kansas City and
Chicago, while Omaha consumers of hay
have to go to one of these markets for
their hay. "
Thua, for example, tha Stock Tarda
company buys much, of Its hay from
the Kansas (jltjr ruajat for consumption
In tha yards in Omaha. The abaurdlty of
paying this extra freight for the haul
to Kansas City and back, and paying
the extra middleman for the extra num
ber of tlmea the hay Is handled through
this bunglesome system Is apparent.
