MAN PASSES AWAY.
T. G. Northwall. president of the
T. G. Northwall company, died of
pneumonia Saturday morning at bis
home, 3715 Lincoln boulevard. He was
born in Illinois, February 23, 1863, and
came to Omaha in 1886, when he
started a small jobbing implement
business, which has grown to the
present big establishment
Mr. Northwall was president of the
Swedish relief tornado committee
three years ago. He was always an
active church member. He was trus
tee and treasurer of the Zion Luth
eran church for the last six years.
He is survived by a widow and three
sons, Maurice, Virgil and Merrill.
Wild Horse Case
For U. S. to Pay,
Justice came high in the celebrated
Arizona "wild horse" case, which
came to a close Thursday afternoon.
ft cost the government approximately
$20,000 to prove that the nine defend
ants found guilty conspired to use the
mails to detraud. 1 his would make
the expenditure of a little better than
$2,000 for each of the defendants
The greatest item of expense was
the mileage paid to the many wit
nesses the government subpoenaed
from all parts of the country. Uncle
Sam allows each witness 10 cents per
mile one way to the trial.
The $20,000 does not include the
salaries of government attorneys or
of the work of any of ,the govern

Balk at Law to Stop
Race for Business
Nebraska lawyers Friday refused
to give their O. K. to a bill for a law
that would put in force, with heavy
penalties, the code of ethics of the
American Bar association.
A committee oa legislation, headed
by T. W. Blackburn, reported such a
bill, but without recommendation, and
then the author, W. M. lain of Fre
mont, brought it before the state asso
ciation on his own motion.
The bill was drastic, providing with
penally of heavy fine and disbarment
that it shall he "unlawful for any at
torney to solicit business either di
rectly or indirectly." It also pro
vided a heavy jail sentence for em
ploying or acting as "ambulanre
chaser" for a lawyer. A warm dis
cussion followed, but only a third of
the membership voted favorably.
A bill, introduced two years ago
before the legislature, will be reintro
duced, providing for the supreme
court to appoint a commission of
i three members .o investigate the con
duct of practicing lawyers and pro
viding that on their recommendation
the attorney general must start dis

Price of Bottles for Milk
Will Be Increased Soon
Milk dealers of the city have re
ceived quite a jolt in a notice that
the price of milk bottles would be
greatly increased after the first of
the year and with no assurance of
delivery. The dealers arc somewhat
alarmed over the announcement as
the cost of bottles has a direct bearing
on the price of milk. It will, for this
reason, be to the interest of everyone
to keep down the high cost of milk
by co-operating with thei dealers by
returning all bottles as fast as they

present prices the loss of bottles
must be stopped. The housewives can
materially assist by stopping the
use of milk bottles for glue, pre
serves, allowing the children to play
with them and allowing them to ac
cumulate around the house. Many
people when they move leave scores
of bottles in basements and other
places so that hundreds of them find
their way to ash pits and into the
hands of peddlers.
"No matter where people get our
bottles, whether from some other
milk man or from their grocer, the
bottles arc always ours even if a
deposit has been left with the grocer
on them. State laws make it unlaw
ful to buy or sell our branded bot
tles. Since the supply of chemicals
for making bottles is almost ex
hausted and more cannot be ob
tained we certainly hope the public
will help the dealers keep down the
cost of milk by promptly returning
Community Center Work in
Schools is to Continue
City Commissioner Hummel was
assured by members of the Board of
Education, in session as committee
of the whole, that the matter of
abandoning the community centers in
schools has not been suggested to the
board. On the contrary the school
directors arc pleased with the work
being done at these centers under the
supervision of the Board of Public
When making up the recreation
budget for 1917 Mr. Hummel will in
clude an amount to cover the ex
penses of the school centers.

E. W. Blaucett, believed to have mur
dered C. D. Armour of Sioux City,
la., near Wagon Mound, N. M.. while
both were enroute to Fresno, Cat., in
an automobile. Rlaucett also is be
lieved to have taken Armour's name
after the supposed murder, and by
the use of it to have obtained large
slims of money.
Armour accompanied by his mother
and sister, started from Sioux City
for Fresno September 19. At Clarke's
Neb., the sister was taken sick, so
the mother and girl proceeded to the
coast by rail. Armour went on alone
and from Denver he wrote that he
had been joined by an agreeable
young fellow he had met at the Young
Men's Christian association. Armour
was last heard from at Santa Fe, N.
M.. although a man who answered
Blaucett's description disposed of an
Oldsmobile car in Wagon Mound.
Spens Suggests Freight
Embargo by Burlington
That the Burlington would not be
making any mistake if it, too, should
declare an embargo on competitive
freight as the Union Pacific did the
first of the week, is the opinion of
Conrad E. Spens, assistant freight
traffic manager of the Burlington in
Chicago, who is in Omaha to spend
"The Burlington is moving its
freight," says Mr. Spens. "but the
volume is so great and the car short
age so acute that it is indeed a dif
ficult matter. An embargo probably
would relieve the congestion and help
a great deal,"
THE B. F. GOODRICH COMPANY announces
that owing to the advanced cost of all mate
rials entering into the construction of its tires,
especially fabric, it has readjusted its prices both
to the Consumer and the Trade as of January
In making this price revision it has considered
carefully the respective difference between its
products having fabric construction and where it
is absent. Instead of advancing BOTH cases and
inner tubes, it has given the Consumer and the,
Trade the advantage wherever it existed, based on
individual cost of each size, instead of a line ad
vance irrespective of the factor of individual cost.

The forcjroinpr comparative figures show satisfactory progress
during the year 1916. For the past six months the Association's
earnings have been ample for the regular dividend rate of 6 per cent
per annum, which has been credited to the shareholders' accounts.
Should like favorable conditions continue during 1917, the regular
dividend rate will be maintained. There is a great abundance of
money seeking safe investment and competition for good loans is be
coming keener and tending toward lower rates of interest.
The Directors hope to keep the Association's money employed at
the current rate, but should competitive conditions force a reduction
of the interest rate to borrowing members a reduction in the divi
dend rate will become a future necessity.
