RUSH TO REGISTER SHOWS INTEREST IN OMAHA IN
ELECTION This photograph was snapped at the Douglas
county courthouse on Saturday night, when business tor the
day was closed in the office of Election Commissioner Har
ley C Moorbead. It shows the crowd of unregistered voters,
still waiting to get their names on the voters' list. The con
gestion is caused by -the fact that registration is held at the
central office alone and not at the various polling precincts,
as was" the case' before the new law was passed. Commis
sioner Moorhead has not yet made a tabulation of the new
registrations, nor of the total number who will be entitled

Toledo, O., Oct. 23. Three bodies

"Steamer Merida, were brought into
port early today on the freight steami

Captain Cunningham recoiled that
the bodies were picked up in the mid
dle of Lake Erie between Port Stan
ley, Ontario, by the Cleveland. Thev
were taken from the water at 1 o'clock
Sunday afternoon. A fourth body was
sighted, bur on account of high seas
the crew was unable to recover it.
Captain Cunningham said that
shortly before the bodies were found
the Matthews passed the steamer
Charlotte Breitung and that its cau-
tain megaphoned nim that the Brei
tung had picked ud four bodies, three
bearing life preservers stamped "Mer

Clevelaad, O., Oct. 23. Local man
agers of the steamer Merida, owned
by the Valley Camp Shipping com
pany of Midland, Ontario, conceded
today that the ship was lost in Fri
day night's gale on Lake Erie. The
admission came after seven bodies ol
the crew had been picked up in mid-la'-e
by two other ships. So far as
known not a man of the crew of

whom it does not provide, but also on
the part of those to whom ' it ex
pressly refers." ,
It is apparent from the statement
if the circular sent out by Mr. Stone
ind his colleagues that they are be
ginning' to do some thinking about
che Adamson law which Mr. Hughes
mggested that they do in his Newark
ipeetih. And they are finding that
the law la not so clear as it might
be. They are beginning to pay one
of the penalties for haste.
But there is one man who affects
to know just what the Adamson law
means, and inasmuch as it ' was his
surrender to the threat of a strike b
the brotherhoods that drove the bill
through congress, he certainly ought
to know all about it and especially
what it means. He is President Wil
son. , Time and again since he signed
the bill with four gold pens, and gave
one to each brotherhod chief as a
sacred souvenir, he has proclaimed in
Eublic his satisfaction with this "eight
our law," as he always describes it,
ts an accomplishment .of service to
labor and to humanity.
Since Mr. Stone and his colleagues
are in such doubt as to the meaning
and application of this lawi why don't
they apply to Mr, Wilson for real in
formation? ts there anything in their
experience with him which has caused
mem to begin to doubt his om
niscience? ' Perhaps there is.
Other speakers who are contribut
ing to the Dublio discussion of thin
law are wondering how it is that rail
road men such as Lovett of the Union
Pacific and Underwood of the Erie
are so enthusiastic in their support of
rrcsiueni vvuson ior re-eiection.
"Is it because they are so disoleased
with the Adamson act?" asks Henry
. nnen, ine wen Known Kansan. Is
labor to be the goat? Was this bill
I gun loaded bv labor or for lahnr?
This wage increase did not enm nut
of Wilson's pocket, or out of the
pocket of the administration. No
eight-hour day with ten-hour pay for
the railway postal clerks or other
postal employes. No. That raise
would show in the Wilson adminis

PAYMENT OF THELOSS
In the death of anyone who earns
more than he consumes there is a
direct money loss. How shall this loss
be met; It may be met In one of two
ways; First: By a lire insurance
company if the deceased has been
thoughtful enough to have taken in
surance on his life. Second: By his
family if there was no insurance. If
met by his family, often times it is
(1) through a lower standard of liv
ing; or (2) through denial of educa
tional advantages to the children; or
At .1 1. T J . . ,
oi iiiruuirn increased ton dv tne
widow and daughters; or (4) possibly
through charity. ..
Is it not much better ta miwt th
loss through Insurance?
