How Petition for
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
Lincoln, July 25. (Special.) "A
petition for compensation under the
workmen's compensation act should
set out the injury in its extent and
character, and the judgment should
conform thereto, determining plainly
the extent and character of the in
jury, whether the disability is total
or partial, and whether temporary or
permanent; it should state definitely
the time for which periodical pay
ments must be made."
This is the ppinion of the Nebraska
supreme court in a suit for dam
ages brought by George L. Hanley
against the Union Stock Yards com

in the Lancaster county district court.
Later the defendant made application
to the court for an order relieving
it from the payment of any further
compensation to Hanley. The court

extensive damage to crops and build

(from a Staff Correspondent.)
Washington, July 25. (Special
Telegram.) ' How can a committee
do most to assist you in locating a
federal bank in Omaha?" was a ques
tion received by telegraph from Fred
D. Wead, chairman, addressed to
Congressman Lobeck today.
What ever answer the congressman
makes to the telegram may not tell
the situation exactly as it now exists
regarding the location of a land bank
in the Gate City.
before Senator Hitchcock left for
Nebraska he filed applications for a
federal laud bank or a "rural credit
bank" with Secretary McAdoo, from
both Lincoln and Omaha, incidentally
stating that in view of two cities
in his state being candidates for such
location he could do nothing more
than be neutral. So much for Mr.
What State Must Expect
The members of the house feel that
they cannot do more than Senator
Hitchcock has done, and while they
have pronounced views on the sub
ject, do not hesitate to say that if
the state has two candidates tor the
location of a farm loan bank, then the
state has no right to expect anything
but what it will undoubtedly get.
It was charged against Bryan that
his championship of Lincoln as a
branch of he federal reserve bank
against Omaha made the selection of
either one impossible.
Bryan does not appear in the farm
loan -bank equation, but the result
promises much the same.
If the judgment of the individual
members of the delegation in con
gress from Nebraska could decide the
location of the farm loan bank it
would be in favor of Omaha. Lin
coln has once more gummed the

were capital visitors today. Mr.
Houston said he had traveled as far
east as Montreal and had talked to

conversations believed that Hughes
would be the next president

No Water in Pool at
. Of Too Small Pipe
There were several hundred disap
pointed bathers, or rather, would-be
bathers, at Riverview park Monday
evening. Ihe evening was warm
and large numbers of Omahans
trekked out to the pool at Riverview
to take a dip in the reported cooling
waters there. But alas, there wasn't
enough water in the pool, and those
who had pinned their hopes on River
view as a refresher either visited
other bathing resorts or retreated to
the friendly bath tub.
The water had been ordered shut
off by Joe Hummel, park commis
sioner, following complaints from
consumers in" the neighborhood that
they were unable to get water while
the pool was being filled. There is
only a four-irich main in the district
in which the park is located, a fact
that results in the consumers, they
complained, being left "high and dry"
while the pool is getting its quota of
Residents Make Complaint
Residents in the neighborhood of
Twenty-second and Grace streets are
complaining that the sewers along
Twenty-second street have not been
flushed recently, a fact, they add, that
has resulted in much annoying dust.
The city engineer explained that dur
ing a dry spell the flushings of the
neighborhood ordinarily do not carry
away all the dust 'and accumulations.
The sewer inspector will be ordered
1 to investigate the complaints.

Federal Aid to
Prevent Spread of
NEW YORK, July 25. Efforts of
the federal health service to prevent,
if possible, the spreading of infantile
paralysis to cities, and towns outside
of New York, were strengthened to
day when an order was issued that
no child 16 years of age or under be
permitted to leave New York with
out a certificate from the federal sur
geon. To obtain federal certificates chil
dren first must get certificates from
the New York health department,
showing there have been no cases of
infantile paralysis in the house in
which they have lived during the last
six months. They also must pass an
examination by federal surgeons.
The number of deaths and new
J cases increased during the twenty-
tour hours ending at 111 o clock this
morning. During that time thirty
eight deaths and 150 new cases were
reported from the five boroughs of
To Fight for Lower
Lower fire insurance rates are due
in Omaha, thinks the executive com
mittee of the Commercial club. The
club bases its opinion on the fact that
the city's fire department has been
motorized. The committee was given
to understand that lower insurance
rates would be contingent upon the
motorization of the fire department.
"Now we are motorized," says the
club. "Now where arc the lower
rates?" The committee expects to
take the matter up with the National
Board of Undrewriters.

Rockies Rivals the
The altitudes are just as great, the views from the summit just
as inspiring, and the ascents present problems to test the most hardy
climber this is the testimony of Swiss mountain climbers, many of
whom visit Colorado every year for the purpose of studying these
peaks and their formations, together with the glaoiers and glacial
moraines so much in evidence in the "Switzerland of America."
The United States Department of the Interior states that nowhere
else in America can glaciers and their workings be studied to better
advantage than the Colorado Rockies.
In Rocky Mountain National Park and beautiful Estes Park there
are over sixty peaks rising above 12,000 feet and a number in the
neighborhood of 14,000 feet.
These are but one of the attractions in this section of Colorado.
Hotels and cottages located at the very feet of these highest peaks pro
