Convict Labor on 1
Roads is Success,
Says Gov. Carlson
"The5 convict labor-on the roads In
Colorado is a success from the stand
point of tha convict, and also from the
standpoint of the road building of 'the
state," said Governor George A. Carlson
of Colorado In an 'address to the Com
mercial club at noon.
JSovernor Carlson touched only briefly
on the road situation, devoting a part of
his talk to the famous "strike situation
that existed in Colorado some time ago,
and the Ludlow battle between militia
men and foreign miners.
"The truth about that Ludlow affair
has never been given wldo pubflclty," he
said. "The reports that went out were
largely erroneous. It was not a matter
of militia murdering miners, but It was
a matter of tha militia of the state de
fending Itself against the attack of these
foreign anarchists, who had entrenched
themselves for battle and attempted to
murder the mllltla."

Guy Liggett Makes , a Few
Comments : on the Devel
opment of the Dry Clean
ing Business -During' His
Eighteen Years ' Connec
tion With The Pantorium.
Eighteen years ago today-I came to
Omaha and began work at, The Pan
torlum, whlth ' had', been started tha
proceeding August' as a pressing' con
cern for the care of men's clothes. .
At that time the cleaning of clothes
In gasoline was practically an ( un
known business. Our first attempts
at Dry Cleaning consisted "of soaHIhe
the garments In a tub of gasoline,
then brushing 'on "a table, "after "h"!cfi '
they were r'nsed In another, tub and
hung In the air to dry. A very waste
ful, dangerous and 'often unsatisfac
tory method, but the' best and 'only
one we knew of at -the time. 1
We didn't even havo soap that was
soluble In gasoline; and such things
as Washers, Extractors, Stills, Clarl
flcrs. Glove Machines and Under
ground Storage had never s been
thought of. " ' ' .' '
As t: e Cleaning and Dyflnp business
developed The Pantorlum was 'always
first to dlsrsrd ' the Old and adopt
the New. We've always set the Pace
as well as the Price for Quality Cleans
ing In Omaha, and I feel we have a
good right to call ourselves - the
"Dnddy" of Dry Cleaning In this part
of tho country., , - 1 ' - '
There are hundreds of leading citi
zens In Omaha and vicinity who have
been our customers from the Very
start, which speaks well for '.the' qual
ity of our work, as well ss for our
method of doing business. ' .' 'i
Today we have" one-of the "largest
and best equipped plants In the United
States, and In addition to- cleaning
and Dyeing both Mun's and 'Women's
garments we do Carpets, ttJga,. Drap
eries. Curtains, Comforts, Pillows,
Furs, Feathers, etc. ; In fact," anything
that requires Care and klli;in hand
ling. ' -
We have a large patronage from
out of town customers, -and since -the
Postal Authorities increased - the
weight limit we-have, paid carrying'
charges one way, on SlPaut of town
orders. - . ' - . .
In looking back over my past Eigh
teen years' experience I realize we
have made great advancement In the
business, but I confidently telieve the
next eighteen years will 'thow 'Just. as
great an advanco, and, as In the past,
