BIG ARMY CAMP'
MAY BE OPENED
IN OMAHA BY U.S.
President Brown of Commer
cial Club Says One of
Thirty-Two "Towns" May
Be Built Here.
Omaha probably will be chosen as
one of the thirty-two "army towns"
to house soldiers who will be mobi
lized within the next six months, in
the opinion of President Randall K.
Hrown of the Commercial club of
"We knew this building of camps
tc house the soldiers was coming
and we have been pressing Omaha's
advantages for some time," said
"We have had the question up with
the War department, and Senator
Hitchcock has made several triDs to
the department in our behalf. We
have placed all the available informa
tion as to Omaha's advantages befoie
the committee in charge.
"We have pointed out that Omaha
has excellent railway facilities, that
it already has two army posts here,
that it has great stock yards and pack
ing plants to furnish an abundant
meat supply; that it has great eleva
tors tor tne storing ot gram and a
great many other facilities important
Colonel Hunter Impressed.
"Colonel Hunter was here from
Washington about a month ago with
a committee of army men looking
over Omaha's facilities. He seemed
greatly impressed with Omaha's re
sources," Colonel Bingham of the quarter
master's department said: "I know
nothing about where these mobiliza
tion camps will be located. That is
till handled from Washington. The
locations have been under investiga
tion for some time."
Commissioner Manley of the Com
mercial club said:
"The War department sent officers
here some time ago to check up
Omaha's advantages. They obtained
maps of vacant plats of ground adja
cent to the city, taking account of the
street car service, the railway facili
ties, etc. They were in no position to
tell us what opinions they had formed.
Their report, as I understand it, was
made back to General Thomas Barrv
of Chicago, commander of the Central
Business Men Hopeful.
Omaha business men are of the
opinion that Omaha's chances of be
ing selected as one of the sites are
excellent, especially since the dis
patches say sue such mobihzat on
camps are to be opened in the Cen
tral department, which comprises only
tne nve states ot Nebraska, Minne
sota, the Dakotas and Iowa.

Beaten Habitually, Woman Swoons
As She Testifies Against Husband
A ninety-pound mother of two chil
dren testified against her husband Fri
day in police court and then collapsed.
She told how her husband, John
Ivron, employe at the smelter works,
beat her habitually. Wednesday, she
said, he locked her in their home at
4603 North Eighteenth street and
beat her with a strap until her body
was-black and blue.
Ivron, a big, powerful man, earns
$11 a week and refused to turn it
over to his wife for the support of
herself and the two children.
Mrs, Ivron says she often suffered
hunger without, complaining, but
when her babies, aged 18 months and
9 months, were without food she
complained to Mrs. Rose M. Ohaus,
head of the Welfare board domestic
During her testimony Mrs. Ivron
was afraid to look at her husband.
He scowled at her several times and
the little woman slunk down in her
chair. Once she bowed her head to
the back of her chair, and Mrs. Ohaus
brought her a drink of water.
"He said he would kill me if I told
the olice," Mrs. Ivron said.
At the request of Mrs. Ohaus, Judge
Madden sent Ivron to the work house
for forty-five days.
"I want to send this little woman
to the hospital' explained Mrs.
Ohaus, "to give her time to recuperate
from the beatings her husband gave
her. Her body is a mass of bruises."

Seven billion dollars! The "liberty
Do you realize, dear reader, how
many dollars that is? Probably not.
For when figures rise to those vast
proportions they exceed the compre
hension of these little brains of ours.
Well, let's try to comprehend. That
sum represents about $7 for every
minute, day and night, that has
elapsed from the birth of Christ to the
Take another example. Suppose vou
have 7,000,000,000 silver dollars in a
big bin, and you start to count them.
You count one dollar a second and
drop it into another bin. One dollar
every second you count and you work
eight hours a day and .IdS days a year,
except in leap vears, when you work
Suppose you are 20 years old now.
By the time vou arc 90 vou will have
counted just 7J5.OO0,0OO of those dol
lars. It would take you 605 years and
ten months to complete the task of
counting the $7,000,000,000.
Borrows the Dollar.
I hold in my hand, ladies and gen
tlemen, a silver dollar (borrowed for
the occasion from a wealthy itentlc-
man in the office). 1 ask Mr. A. F.d
win Long for the loan of a ruler. He
hasn t any. Mr. tred S. Hunter, our
sporting editor, who wears such
classy clothes, also foils me.
But Mr. Bertsch. who knows every
thing and has everything, produces a
ruler from the third drawer of his
desk and I proceed to measure the
silver dollar. As a result of my ma
thematical investigations I find that
the dollar is one and one-half inches
Now 1 do some lightning calculat
ing, i discover that eight silver dol
lars, laid edge to edee. will reach a
distance of one foot. Therefore 42,-
240 silver dollars will reach exactly
Dividing 7.000.000.000 bv 42.240 I
get 165,719. Seven billions dollars,
laid edge to edge would reach 165,719
miles, or six times around the earth
with 15,719 miles left over. If vou
could walk thirty miles a day and keep
walking every day along that line of
dollars you could reach the end of
tne line in a trine over sixteen years.
Put 'Em in Piles.
Taking again Mr. Bertsch's worn
but serviceable ruler and the silver
dollar borrowed from the wealthy gen
tleman, l hnd ny careful measure
ments that ten silver dollars, placed
one on top of the other will make a
pile one inch high.
With this fact established, I demon
strate by means of an elaborate esti
mation in trigonometry and differ
ential calculus that 7,000.000.000 silver
dollars will make a pile 700.000,000
iiuiies iiirii, which would be ,5.W,Jj.(
leet or 11,048 miles.
This is too high a pile to stand firm
ly.; So we will make our 7,000,000.001)
dollars into 1 1 .048 piles, each one mile
high. In still other words all these
dollars would make 20'),')2 piles, each
as high as the City National bank
Thoroughly exhausted with mv ma
thematical labors I pause here, hoping
vou realize how big a sum $7,000,000,
1 return the ruler to Mr. Bertsch
and. what's more, 1 return the dollar
to the wealthy individual. For I am
an honest man.
