STARTS OUT FINE
Littb Difficulty Is Anticipated
in Organizing New Regi

iFrom a Surf Correspondent.)
Lincoln, June 10. (Special.) Work
of the organization of the new Sixth
Nebraska regiment is starting in fine
shape and it is expected there will be
little trouble in gathering sufficient
men to give it its full war strength
in a short time.
With the organization of the new
regiment Nebraska will have sufficient
men to form a brigade composed
wholly of Nebraska men and for this
reason it is expected the work wil
bo on ranidlv. The sooner the rrgi
ment is completed the quicker will
the boys from Nebraska get the
chance to go to I-ranee.
Four Companies in Omaha.
It is the intention to form a battal
ion in Omaha if possible for the new
regiment. That city already has one
battalion belonging to the fourth
regiment, and it is expected that there
will be little difficulty in getting men
there for the four companies needed
for the same.
It is also hoped to have Lincoln
represented in the new regiment, al
though the capital city has one com
pany in the Fifth, a hospital company,
ana a Dana in tne same regiment
Attorney General Rules
Who May Buy Alcohol
(From a Staff Corrwpnnrint.
Lincoln, June 10. (Special.) It
was not the intention of the legisla
ture to deprive science of any advan
tage which it has attained when it
enacted the prohibition law, is the
opinion of Attorney Oeneral Keed,
given in answer to an inquiry by Ed
on Rich, solicitor of the Union Pa
cific, to liabilty of that road in

licensed to practice as a physician and
lurgeon, liquors required by him in
his practice of medicine.
"The retailer cannot sell directly
to the physician, neither ii it sold to
him upon the theory alone that he is
physician," replies the attorney gen

represented to the court that they
had no intention at that time of taking
any action to prevent the state officers
from enforcing the law.

State Banks Investing
Heavily in the Bonds
(From a Fluff Corraapondant.)
Lincoln, Neb.. June 10. (Special.)
State banks are investing heavily in
Liberty bonds, according to reports
coming to Secretary J. J. Tooley of
the State Banking board. This is in
dicated by the number of inquiries
coming to the office of the secretary
as to tne amount the banks may legal
ly carry and the manner the amounts
may be carried on the books. To all
such inquiries the department, has re
plied advising that the amount of
bonds should be determined by the
banker himself, exercising the usual
prudence governing suet) investments.
The bonds are to be carried under the
head of Bonds and Securities and
while they can not, under the law, be
classed as a cart of the bank's legal
reserve, they will serve the purpose
of a good secondary reserve.
J he department is encouraged to
believe the next report called for will
show that practically every bank in
the state is carrying a Liberty bond.
even though the amount may in some
cases be small.

WATTLES ON STAND

Head of Omaha Street Railway
System Relates Omaha's Ex

Board at Linooln.
(From a Staff Corraapondant.)
Hastings, Neb., June 10. (Special
Lincoln, June 10. (Special.) Sat
urday was the last day of the hearing
before the State Railway commission
of the complaint of the striking street
car employes against the Lincoln
Traction company in an effort to have
the commission declare that the com
pany must recognize the union of
street car employes snd reinstate the
President G. W. Wattles of the
Omaha & Council Bluffs Street Rail
way company today on the stand told
the experience of the Omaha com
pany at the time of the strike a few
years ago in that city.
Mr. Wattles prefaced his testimony
by saying tie had no objection to an
organization among the employes of
the Omaha company which would
promote good feeling among them,
but his company's relations with the
union, he said, had been the cause of
much friction among the employes
because there were two factions, those
who belonged to the union and those
who did not.
Majority Remained Out,
The maioritv of the mm umrkino
for the Omaha company had never
joined the union, he said, being satis
fied with the treatment they were re
ceiving at the hands of the company,
but a representative of the national
association had before the organiza
tion of the union been successful in
creating some sentiment favorable to
organization and one had been
formed. At the time of the trik
about one-half of the men belonged
iw inc union.
Before the strike the union had ri.
manded recognition and wanted the
company to discharge all men who did
not Deiong. une ot the requirements
of the union was that each member
should pay $1 month into the na
tional treasury. The company re
fused to recognize the union.
When asked by Commissioner Wil.
son why the company had refused to
recognize the union, Mr. Wattles said
he was not against union organiza
tion in many instances, but thought
it no piace tor one where the em
ployes are working for a public serv
ice corporation, for the reason that
whenever a difficulty arises the public
is always ine innocent sunerer.
Appealed for Protection.
In the case of the Omaha strike
employes of the company who did not
belong to the union appealed to the
company for protection and the com
pany had done the best it could to
protect them and the interests of the
My office has alwavs been onen
and employes welcome to come with
any complaint they might have," said
Mr. Wattles and uo to the time of
the strike we had had little or no com
plaint. National leaders of the union
had come to Omaha about two weeks
before the annual Ak-Sar-Ben festivi
ties and called a strike. A meeting
had been called a day before the strike
lor conferences with the Commercial
club, but while the conference was on
the strike had been called. The loss
to the company directly and indirectly
was f500,000. The national organizer
had made the boast that he would
stop the wheels of business in Omaha
it the street car company did not
recognize the union."
Had Paid Good Wages. '
Mr. Wattles said the Omaha &
Council Bluffs Street Railway com
pany had made it a practice of paying
as good wages as it could to its em
ployes and even during the panic,
when so many public service corpora
tions had gone to the wall, and the
Omaha company was on the verge of
bankruptcy, it had not decreased the
wages. In January, 1910, it made a
raise of a cent an hour, the same in
1912 and the same in 1914,, For the
first time in his remembrance this
year about a week or so ago the men
had sent a petition to the company
asking for a raise because of the high
cost of living, the raise to go into ef
fect July 1. The company held a
meeting and voted a 6 per cent bonus
to employes on all wages earned for
the first six months of the year and
last Tuesday raised wages 2 cents
per hour. ,
Commissioner Wilson asked Mr.
Wattles if he thought a commission
practicable that could take over such
controversies as the Omaha and Lin
coln companies had had with their
employes. Mr Wattles said he did
not believe it would, for the reasons
he had already given, that the local
unions were compelled to obey orders
of national officers who were not in
touch with the local situations.

There is nothing startling in GMC design. The
lines of the radiator and back of the radiator do not
involve anything freakish. Its makeup excludes
"saucy slants" and "beautiful curves." Moreover,
you would hesitate to call it homely.
The outstanding thing you remember about these
trucks is their solidness and their continual running.
And, after all, disregarding the first cost, aren't those
two things (coupled with operating economy) what
you are looking for?
A motor truck in modern business has to stand an awful
lot of gaff and abuse. So, in the course of trucking events,
GMC trucks are being built to stand up under the hardest
and longest service, to run night and day without interrup
tion if necessary.

lies great Strength" but the beauty in GMCs, as the
