The wholesale houses iu Omaha
are the busiest places in thr city this
week. The Merchants' Market week
crowds froqi all over a half dozen
states are the.e buying their spring
goods. No !esj than 500 merchants
from the various states are now in
the city selecting their stocks, ac
cording to the most conservative esti
mates. The Commercial club dining room
i as a busy place at noon, for out-'
of-town merchants, making use of
the club privileges during their stay
in the city, had crowded ihe dining
room for the lunch hour.
llioueh the weather was not thr
best, the trains nevertheless brought
their quota of merchants. The very
iact tnat tne morning was snowy and
ugly made the wholesale establish
ments all the more busy, for to just
the extent that it was unpleasant to
wain the streets to that extent did the
merchants and their wives remain in
the jobbing establishments inspecting
the latest in every line carried and
giving orders right and left. The
local wholesalers feel elated over the
number of orders being received.'
At 6:15 last evening the visitors
and the local wholesalers were assem
bled at the Hotel Rome for a dinner.
The wholesalers were hosts to the vis
iting merchants. During the dinner
theater tickets for the Orpheum were
distributed and immediatc'v after
the dinner the crowd hustled to the
theater, where they had the best seats
in the house. Alter this they returned
to the Hotel Rome where they
danced as late as the orchestra could
hold out.

Calvin T. Lambert, 33 years old,
owner of a fleet of taxicabs, is on
trial in Judge Sears' court on a
charge of manslaughter. A car which
he was driving on August 15, 1916,
struck down William Gorhnian. 9
years old, at Twenty-fifth and Famam
streets, the lad dying a few hours
later at the Wise Memorial hospital.
Several witnesses were called to
testify in Lambert's behalf. Henrv
M. Binder, who was at the wheel of I
a machine directly in front of Lam-1
bert's car when the accident occurred,
gave his version of how he believed
the tragedy happened. The boy ran
into the street, closely followed bv a
little girl, and Lambert was power
less to avoid striking him, Binder tes
tified. 1
V. E. Van Cott.'driver of another
car which was passing at the time of
the accident, told the court that Lam
bert stopped his machine almost in
stantly as the front wheels of the
taxicab struck the lad. Other wit
nesses testified that the taxicab man
was driving at a speed of about five
miles an hour.
On the same day that Lambert went
on trial the father of the boy, Ira O.
Gorhman, filed suit in district court
for $10,000 damages against him for
his son's death.
Lambert was a farmer, living near
Palmer, Neb., before coming to
Omaha to engage in the taxicab business.
