Deposits in the postal savings banks

amounts for investment in Liberty

that deposits have decreased material

in the deposits in all the postal sav

drawals. may amount to as much as
M per flent.
"When the people can get -3'A per
cent on Liberty bonds, tney would
be foolish to leave it in the postal
savines bank at 2 per cent," said one
officer. "The Liberty bonds are just
as safe as the postal savings bank
and the interest is nearly twice as

(From a Staff CorrpondTit.)
Lincoln, Neb., June 13. (Special
Telegram.) Orders have been re
ceived by T. S. Allen, United States
district attorney, to proceed to
Omaha and investigate tht strike
situation there, especial stress being
laid on the matter of ascertaining
if interstate commerce has been in
terfered with. Hs will look sfter
the matter early next week.
Attorney General Willis Reed is in
Omaha investigating the status of the
strike situation here. He is calling
on a number of people to gain what
information he can in order to de
termine whether there is any condi
tion here which will call for action
by the state authorities. "I am sim

"and have not decided what I shall
Building material was delivered to
the building jobs yesterday for the
first time in over three weeks, since
the strike of the Teamsters' union
was followed by a shutting off of de
liveries from these yards.
Material men say the reopening is
not the result of any direct agree
ment with the strikers and that no
concessions hive beeen made.
Wagons Start to Move.
There is no recognition of the
unions. Nonunion and union team
sters are employed to make the de
liveries. Union pickets are still out,
and a few disturbances occurred when
the wagons began to move.
The Guiou & Ledwich Lumber
company. Nineteenth and Izard
streets, sent out two loads of lum
ber early in the morning, with a union
driver on one and a nonunion driver
on the other. The loads got only a
few blocks from the yards when a
squad of union pickets stopped them
and held a tonference, which resulted
in both teamsters hauling their loads
back .into the yards.
Police assistance was called for a
driver at Twentieth and Webster
streets, but it is understood the dis
turbance wis slight.
The Shafer Printing company job
at Seventeenth and Webster streets
is to go ahead with construction work
at once if material can be had. The
contractor was expecting material
during the forenoon and was said to
have a force of workmen ready to
begin building operations as soon as
Building material was eagerly
awaited also by the contractors on the
iob of building the Fitzgerald garage
at Sixteenth and Leavenworth.
To Waive Closed Shop.
Several representatives ""of the
unions told Governor Neville at Lin
coln Tuesday that they would waive
the closed shop demand in order to
effect a settlement of the controversy
in Omaha. The Business Men's asso
ciation of Omaha and the contractors
are still standing for an open shop.
and the work of making deliveries of
material and attempting to start the
building activities was begun on the
open shop basis. This was illustrated
by the fact that a union and a non
union man were sent out together
with two loads of material by the
Guiou & Ledwith company1.
Electrical contractors generally say
they are willing to pay electricians 60
cents per hour, while they have been
jeetting 575 cents. They made a de
ma7m for 68)4 cents, however, when
they strudfcjome months ago. At that
time the contractors offered to give
the 60 cents, but refused to go as high
as 68)4 cents.
Do Not Expect Trouble.
Most of the material men in the
city say they anticipate no serious
trouble now that deliveries have be
gun. They do not look for the drivers
to be molested to any great extent,
and they say that the nonunion drivers
had little or no apprehension in start
ing out on aeiivcrics in uic morning.
One situation which has been
cleared ud bv the three weeks' tieup in
the brick shortage situation, Omaha
was nracttcallv brickless when the tie

to make a supply and catch up. the
