of downward awing In value, accelerated by
an authoritative denial of yesterday's ra-

HofsAnothar heavy hog supply was en
deck this morning, receipts ot 206 ears, or
13.600 head, being the largest In two weeks
with the exception of yesterday. Pour
days' total Is the largest In many week, the
supply footing up 47,720 head, as against
21,336 last week, 12,144 two weeks ago and
31,421 a year gao. .
Most of the other markets reported fresh
declines this morning and feeling among
locsl buyers was bearish. Shippers bought
1 near eeny nogs as ruuen as 100 lower, best
lights and butchers stopping at 11.40.
Packers also came out with fully lie lower
bids and succeeded In buying some hogs
that way. Most sellers refused to grant
the 10a concessions that were demanded,
pricing their droves steady, or nearly ao.
and packers, who evidently wanted the hogs
naniy enougn, soon raised their hands, buy
ing the bulk of the offerings at 60 lower
ngures, and toward the close paying prlcea
that were steady with yesterday. A few
late shipping orders helped out the close
materially, order buyers being In the trade
from start to nnish.
After first rounds movement waa active
and practically everything had' changed
hands before 1:10. Packer droves were
bought largely at a spread ot 11.1001.00,
and they paid above even money for some
of the better stuff, while outside buyers
gave aa high aa 11.40 for kinds that Just
suited them. General market was any
where from steady to a dime Inwes. or on
the average about 60 down. In tho last
four days values havs depreciated about
46c, niost of the hogs last Saturday having
soia at fi.sucf f.o, wita tops at 11.70.

Traffic Experts from Many
Cities to Confer at Com
mercial Club.
A conference of fi eight rate experts,
or traffic men from various Missouri
river cities, together with Fremont,
Lincoln, Grand Island and Hastings,
is to be held at the Commercial club
rooms at 10 o'clock this morning
The hearing is called by Manager E.
J." McVann of the traffic .bureau of
the Commercial club with regard to
the next move to be made in regard
to Nebraska freight rates since, the
Interstate Commerce commission has
ruled out the lower rates established
two years ago by the Nebraska state
railway commission.
The rates will have to be readjust
ed and this must be done quickly. The
advanced rates ordered bv the Inter
state Commerce commission must go
into effect September 25, according to
the order. That means that the rail
roads will have to publish their new
schedule and get it properly distrib-'
uted by August 25. This is a legal
requirement, and at the same time it
is held to be practically impossible.
Rate men from the following places
have accepted the invitation to attend
the conference: Kansas City, St. Jo
seph, Atchison, Council Bluffs, Sioux
City, Fremont, Lincoln, Grand Island
and Hastings.

Judge Day Fearful
For the Court House
Judge George Day of the district
court is not particular if some of the
lawyers in Omaha want to blow them
elves up with dynamite, but he wishes
them to spare the courthouse, be
cause it is a beautiful building.
Attorney Richard L. Horton
Wednesday wanted to throw a stick
of dynamite out of the window during
the process of a hearing in Judge
Dav's court.
"What for?" asked Judge Day.
"Just to" show that it won't ex
plode," replied the lawyer, who was
trying to prove the dynamite stored
by the Dupont Powder company in
a plant at rforence was not danger-'
ous. as alleged.
"Wait a minute," commanded the
judge. "Not that I am interested in
the future of certain of our lawyers,
but because I admire this beautiful
court house, I ask you to refrain..
Don't throw it."
The lawyer put the stick back in
his pocket.
The case was the one in which John
O'Rourke asked an injunction to pre
vent Grant L. Fox from storing dy
namite in the Florence plant of the
E. I. Dupont de Nemouis Powder
company. The judge overruled
S'Rourke's application because dyna
ite is a well-known commercial
product and not dangerous in the way
O'Rourke alleged.
So City Council Appropriates
All Money Needed to Re
model City Hall
Because no agreement could be
reached with the water board the city
council has appropriated an addi
tional $17,500 to be applied toward re
modeling the city halL
When the decision was first reached
to remodel the municipal building it
was planned to have the city and the
metropolitan water district share the
expense proportionately. Since then
the city dads have tried to come to an
agreement with the water board, but
without avail. A long session on the
matter was held Wednesday.
The commissioners, however, be
came weary of the delay and at a
council meeting decided to appropri
ate the additional $17,500 themselves.
As a result the water district will have
to accept such offices in the city hall
as the council designates. If the water
board shared, the expense it could se
lect its quarters. ,
Contracts for the remodeling- were
let at the council meeting. R. Butke
was awarded a contract of $40,000
for remodeling, the American Elec
trical works a contract for $1,245.11
on electrical work and T. F. Balfe a
contract of $11,299 on plumbing.
Shall they be determined by
Industrial Warfare or
Federal Inquiry?
To the American Public: ;
Do you believe in arbitration or indus
trial warfare? .'
The train employes on all the railroads
have voted whether they will give their leaders
authority to tie up the commerce of the
country to enforce their demands for a 100
million dollar wage increase.
The railroads are in the public service
.your service. This army of employes is in
the public service your service. :
You pay for rail transportation 3 billion
dollar a year, and 44 cents out of every
dollar from you goes to the employes,
On all the Western railroads in 1915, seventy-five per cent of the
train employes earned these wages (lowest, highest'and average
of all) at shown by the pay rolls .

A 100 million dollar wage increase for
men in freight and yard service (less than -one-fifth
of all employes) is equal to a 5 per
cent advance in all freight rates.
The managers of the railroads, as trustees
for the public, have no right to place this
burden on the cosfof transportation to you
without a clear mandate from a public tri
. bunal speaking for you.
The railroads have proposed the settle
ment of this controversy either under the .
existing national arbitration law, or by refer-
ence to the Interstate Commerce Commis
sion. This offer has been refused by the
employes' representatives.
Shall a nation-wide strike or an
investigation under the Gov
ernment determine this issue?
