Robert Alter, chief actor in an old,
old drama of real life, pleaded guilty
to a charge of embezzlement before
Judge Estelle, sitting in criminal
court, and was sentenced to from one
to seven years jn the penitentiary.
The youth, for he is only 25 years
old, was a clerk. He wanted the finer
things of life, but could not get them
on his moderate salary, so he decided
on a forbidden adventure a step as
old as civilization; he "borrowed" the
company's money and made plans to
be a. "millionaire for a day."
As clerk in the office of the Franz
Premier Distributing company he had
access to the firm s funds. Alter ap
propriated $625 in -cash and fled. He
went to Chicago, then to New York,
leaving a trail of gold behind him. It
was by this trail the Omaha authori
ties were able to trace him.

traditional "Great White Way," Alter

Alter said nothing as he stood be

he was wearing. Immediately after

PRICES OF COAL
FAIL TO DECLINE
Out of One to Two Dollars at
Mines, But Has Not' Been
Given to Omaha
Though the coal mines have al
ready cut from $1 to $1.40 per ton
off the price of coal f.o.b. at the
mines, and have to announced to the
retailers of Omaha in their circulars
in accordance with President Wil
son's order, the local retailer! are
standing pat, and making no reduc
tion in the retail prices to their con
sumers. 1 -
September days are here, and the
first blast that sweeps from the north
will make some coal necessary m
every home. Meanwhile the consum
ers are patiently waiting1 for the local
retailers to announce their reduction
in accordance with the reduction at
the mines, but it does not come forth.
The retailers are still claiming that
in order to avoid going bankrupt
they must sell high the coal which
they bought on the higher market,
before they fan start giving their
customers the benefit of the reduction,
forced at the mines by the administra-
ti0"- . . , ,
A few weeks ago the coal dealers
locally declared people must rush to
buy coal that the dealers might empty
their bins and get in more coal. They
held at that time, that there was only
supply enough in the retailers' bins
here to lasj the city a short time.
That was when they were urging
people to buy early.
However, as soon as the govern
ment anttcht to reduce the price $1
or more per ton, and the retailers
were asked to make this cut, they in
sisted that their bins are stocked with
high priced coal, stocked with a sup
ply that could not be exhausted be
fore the first of the year. .
-Which is the correct story is a
mystery, whether there is a two
weeks' supply in Omaha, or a four
months supply? i
