'tUILD HOG CHUTES
'i IN RECORD TIME
Complaint of Shipper on River Boat
i Stir Commercial Club Hen
' , Into Action-
SOUTH . SIDE H5 ASSIST
; ! The boasted military efficiency of
isomc of the European powers has
nothing on the river navigation com
mittee o the Commercial club,
'i Word was received yesterday
'that the Julius F. Silber was again on
i:the way down from Florence with a
load of bogs, and that the owner of
:the hogs was anxious that better, un
loading facilities . be provided , in
Omaha. '. . ' ..-.,. "
! J. Stewart White of the committee,
, and several of the live stock commis
sion men from the South Side arrang
ed a meeting. They hurried in auto
mobiles and on street cars and in a
( few minutes they were holding an
i ; early morning conference at the foot
i-of Howard street,-contemplating the
' ; advisability ; of building some hog
'chute there at the river bank. -"
: Finished in "Nick of Tun."'
j. Soon lumber was delivered. Saws.
i began to rasp, hammers began to
ring on the head of spikes, and at
,1:30 o'clock this afternoon, when the
steamboat swung around ' the big
bend, the last spike was being driven.
The boat swung up to the chute, and
there the hogs were driven down the
chute Tight into the door of a waiting
: stock-car and hustled to the South
i Side yards.
i James Conneally of Decatur, who
.shipped some $3,000 worth of hogs
, down a week ago, claims to have lost
two of them when they were driven
through the squatter settlement from
' the river on the. way to the yards, and
; he insisted that while he liked the
! boat service to get his hogs to Oma
i ha, he must have some better un
i loading facilities and better facilities
i for getting his stock from the boat
i to the yards. The new chute was
the result,, and henceforth, when stock
I comes down the river, it can be trans
! ferred from the boat to the stock
: cars in a Htw 'moments.

given by a coroner s jury as the
cause of the suicide of Viola B. Hol

Life of the Cub Mail Clerk is All
One Downy Bed of Red Roses
These are hard days for the ten
new mail clerks appointed to the local
postoffice. They are undergoing the
initiatory period of their service and
all sorts of jokes are played on
One of them, whose name is mer
cifully suppressed by a tender-hearted
reporter, spent much time the other
day in looking for a "sack stretcher."
He went first to "Scissor-Bill"
Francis. : r . -.- ;-, .,
it was here a minute atro." said
Francis, "but 'Jim' Novacek came and
got it. .
lo Novacek, the weighing boss, the
cub went then, ,
You Eot that sack stretcher here?"
NoDe. I was usins it iust now. but
Lee Utt come and got it."
Off hurried the embryo clerk to
Lee Utt, known as the "cvclone dis
tributor," not because he distributes
cyclones, but because he distributes
letters in such a awift and cyclonic
Utt, disturbed at bavins: his sixtv-
a-minute speed interfered with, put
the youth wise" and he retired, amid
the laughter of the office, to his job
of hustling 100-pound sacks of second
Another of the ten was told that
"Pat" McGovernl is immensely weal
thy and "whenever you want to bor
row any mone) just go to him. He
just works here for the fun of it.1'
The cub approached "Pat" the
very next day for a light "touch" for
$5. , .
"Did you ever borrow money from
me before?" asked "Pat." ' .
"No, sir, never," replied the youth.
"Well, I never loan money to peo-
file that haven't borrowed money
rom me before," said "Pat.'.'
The young man is now trying to
figure out how to get the first loan,
so that he'll be eligible to borrow
from "Pat" regularly.
Wife Won't Come,
He Wants' Divorce
Because he is now a "dyed-in-the-wool"
American, and because his wife
is not, Julius Suhajda is asking dis
trict court for a divorce. His wife
and child are now at Tisza Polgi,
Hungary, where he left them to come
to America to win his fortune.
He has done this and has repeatedly
asked thcin to come to this country
and join him. She steadfastly refuses,
he says, and now he wants, a divorce.

Heavy Downpour Over Practically

MACHINE CLOSES FOR GOOD ! AND THEN WEATHER CLEARS
The .east elevator in the city hall
fell from the second floor, the only
occupant being Norman Haverly, con
ductor, who suffered a shaking up,
but was not injured.
- The impact of the. car on the bot
tom of the shaft aroused employes,
who rushed to the balcony railings
of the various floors, expecting some
thing serious had happened.
, This elevator has been closed and
will not be used again. The council
is about to advertise for bids for re
modeling the city hall, the plans in
cluding new elevators- which have
been needed for some time.
.The condition of the city halt ele
vators has been a matter of concern
for a year. The cars have dropped
on several occasions,' but this was
the first time that one of them
drqpped without being checked. If
this east car had dropped from any
floor above the second the conse
quences. may easily beimagined.
The new elevators will be extended
to the basement and .will cost $7,500.

more than its share of rain Thursday

On the railroads there were no bad
