D, Brandeis by Will Thomas, at direction of other executives of the Brandeis stores. Thomas Quinlan, assistant general manager of the store, said the one aim of Arthur Brandeis was to make Omaha a "bigger" city.

He believed in the future of Omaha and he exerted all his energies towara pulling new ue , nu schemes into effect to better thesity,? said Mr. Quinlan, and dded: . ." "In losing Arthur Brandeis, Omaha loses one of its most potent construc tive factors. Anything that looked toward logical development needed no second urging to obtain his backing. Superintendent Singer said Mr. Brandeis was more like a big brother to his employes than'a "boss." "He was interested in every tit of store gossip concerning the welfare of his people, and when one was in trouble, if it was possible, he seldom failed to personally inquire if he 'could do anything. , Head of Many Concerns.

Henry Allen, Kansas progressive leader, here as a newspaper . correspondent reporting the democratic convention, who has announced his support of Mr. Hughes, today expressed belief that Colonel Roosevelt will also take an active part in the Hughes campaign. Mr. Allen said former Representative Victor Murdock, chairman of the pro gressive national committee, was most prominently suggested to suc ceed Colonel Roosevelt as the pro gressive standard bearer if Colonel Roosevelt finally refused the nomina tion. I think the hour is too important for any man to worry about the name of the party he is going to support," said Mr. Allen. "It Colonel Roose velt accepts the spelndid statement of Mr. Huehes as meeting the condi tions which he laid down to the pro gressive convention, a majority of the progressives in the central and north ern states will support Mr. rtugnes.

L. T. St. Louis, June 12. (Special Tele gram.) The Globe-Democrat means welly but is in error, in saying that I am here "to make you laugh." I'm here for self-improvement. The boss made that clear when he suggested the pilgrimage. "There will be noth ing talked but politics for the next few months," he said in part, "and it will freshen you up to see at close range the men who will talk and be talked about from now until Novem ber," So you see it is for my benefit, not for yours, that I am attending the convention. A sort of vacation. A species of rest cure. A process of reinvigorating. ;. ' In order to freshen up this morn ing, after indifferent slumbers, I had a close-range look at Senator Stone, and I began to feel as fresh as the dew upon a hilltop daisy. A glance at Roger Sullivan was like a dash of cold water on the wrists when you are picking through the brush of the windless forests of the north. The proximity of Josephus Daniels was as the revivifying exhalations of a pulmotor. It is now late in the aft ernoon and ray new store of vitality is ebbing, so I think I will go down stairs and have a look at Governor Major, the political Wine of Cardul. This convention could do all it has to do in a day, hut to keep faith with the hotels and saloons it is obliged to maintain an air of activity until Saturday.
