Two Trains from
The North Still Are
Lost in the Snow
Instead of arriving Tuesday night,
as expected, two St Paul and Minne
apolis trains, over the Omaha road,
that has been blocked by snow ever
since last Thursday, did not arrive,
nor were they heard from. It is
now figured that the trains are com
pletely lost and there is no telling
when they will come.
Reports from up the Omaha line in
the vicinity of Heron lake, Minnesota,
there are cuts twenty to thirty feet
deep and one-half to a mile long, that
are completely filled with snow. The
snow is packed so nara mat it cannot
be moved with a snow plow and will
have to be dug out.
England Wants to Know
About Bertschy's Process
A. J. P. Bertschy received the fol
lowing cablegram Tuesday from Sir
Robert Hatfield, president of Hat
field's, Ltd, Sheffield, England:
"If you have agent in this coun
try who could supply sample I should
be clad to eive it a test in our works."
Mr. Bertschy, who is president of
the Bertschy Engineering company,
Twentieth and Harney streets, last
month discovered a new process for
making tool steel at a cost of less
than 1 cent a pound.
Last week an official of the Amer
ican Steel and Wire company was
here to see the process and declared
it was of tremendous importance.
Hatfield's, Ltd., is the firm that
secured a big contract a few weeks
ago for shells for the United States

Secretary Urges Legal Depart
ment and Traffic Bureau in
His Annual Report.
UEGE MORE USE OF LUMBER
A legal department and a traffic
bureau for the Lumber Dealers' as
sociation are among the innovations
suggested by Secretary E. E. Hall in
his annual report made at the opening
session of the annual convention at
the Hotel Rome this afternoon. j
These departments might, I think.
be organized at a minimum expanse,"
he said, "and add direct value to
membership in the association, and 1
would suggest that a committee be
appointed to look into the advisability
of adding these service helps, if it
can be done, and with the authority
to establish these departments if in
vestigation should show that they
Follow Other Organizations.
Regarding what other state associa
tions have already done in this re
spect Secretary Hall said:
"Many of our neighboring associa
tions have organized traffic bureaus
through which the members may
make claims and adjustments for
overcharges, and through which all
expense bills may be checked as to
rate and amount, and cars may be
traced in transit and speeded up.
This service is given to members
only and these dealers who make
use of this bureau find that it pays
them in many instances many times
the amount of their dues.
'Another feature of association
work is a legal department to which
each member is permitted to present
such erral problems as may con
front him in his business, and this
legal advice alone is in many cases
more than equivalent to several years'
Campaign for Members.
President S. W. Lightner of St
Edward, in his opening address, urged
a stronger campaign for membership
in the association. "There have been
so many of the dealers throughout the
state who have been getting the bene
fit of the association s work without
paying their dues and becoming ac
tual members," he said, "that we feel
it is time for them all to come in and
co-operate with us."
He called attention to tne tact that
a special membership committee is
to work hard during this year to in
crease the membership very ma
frcsident Lightner pointed out to
the members that lumber has not
kept pace with other commodities and
especially not with other building ma
terials in the advance in prices in
years past. He declared that lrunber
has made no appreciable advance in
price ,in twenty years, and that even
during the last year when everything
else was rising, lumber increased a
mere 10 per cent This is looked upon
by the lumber dealers as a good talk
ing point for a wider use of lumber in
construction work, since other build
ing materials have advanced so radi
cally. President Lightner congratu
lated the dealers on a prosperous year
of business just closed, and on pros
pects for another prosperous year

Omaha to Pieces
Unless Senator Hitchcock, Con

and opulent democrats come to bat
with an instant and lusty protest, Col
lector McCune's well known Port of
Omaha is likely to lose its only means
of resisting naval attack, and the min

will be able to lay our fair city as low
as they did Antwerp, only in about
half the time.
For the Navy department has
called for a complete accounting of
all ordnance of the Omaha navy re
cruiting station with a view to taking
said ordnance away.
The local recruiting office has
among its implements of war one
navy defense mine, one thirty-seven
millimeter rapid-fire gun, two six
inch shells, one five-inch shell and
one cartridge case. Thus is the Port
of Omaha fortified against the attack
of the enemy.

take these, our only means of protec.

may be able to send one ot his If.
