Shares of all descriptions, particu

hit, suspension of the dividend on Peo

Declines in rails, amany of which
touched lowest quotations of the year
and not a ew for many years, excited
widespread comment, inasmuch as the
movement included shares of high in
trinsic value. Steady offerings of
these stocks occajioned much con
jecture respecting future dividends.
Employes' Demands Complicate Rails,
Numerous additional statements of
railroad earnings compiled by the In
terstate Commerce commission ac
companied the revival of agitation for
increased freight rates. The demand
of the railway employes east ot Chi
caeo and north of Potomac for more
pay add,ed to the complicated condi-

On the whole seasoned industrials

within easy approach of its low quo

Time and call money loans were
decidedly lower, but funds were not
available for stock market purposes.
Rates to some of the neutral Euro

Vessels at Allies' Service
Paris, Oct. 12. Maurice Long,
minister of provisions, was asked in
the Chamber of Deputies- yesterday
whether he believed the sequestration
of German shipping in Brazil could
be raised. The minister replied that
he not only hoped so but be believed
that he could assure the house that
this tonnage was at the disposal of
the allies for use in carrying food.
Brazil severed diplomatic relations
with Germany on April 11, 1917, and
seized forty-six German merchant
ships aggregating 240,779 tons, laid
up in Brazilian harbors. On Sep
tember 5 the Brazilian minister of
marine announced that his govern
ment would not lease the German
ships to the entente allies.
Four More Suspects Are
Indicted in Ship Bomb Case
New York, Oct 12. Indictments
charging a conspiracy to "plant" in
cendiary bombs aboard ships carrying
munitions of war from this port to
the entente allies in 1915 were re
turned by a federal grand jury here
today against Eugene Reister, Joseph
Zeffert, Walter Uhde and Bonford

into custody last night by the police
"bomb squad" and the fourth today.

PHOTO TAKEN ON STAGE OF BRANDEIS THEATER SHOWS MRS. BRANDEIS (ON RIGHT) AND HER SISTER, MISS A1LEEN
FRANK (ON LEFT), TEACHING THE KIDDIES THEIR STEPS FOR THE PUBLIC PERFORMANCE.
Cinderella, Cupid, and a tiny Rus
sian ballet, made up of eleven little
dancers between the ages of 6 and 11,
will appear on the second floor of the
Brandeis stores, this morning at
10, then at 11 o'clock, and in the after
noon at 3 o'clock. Mrs. E. John Bran
deis, a talented dancer and a student
of Vestoff and other celebated dancing
masters, has been training the little
terpsichoreans almost since her arrival
in Omaha as a bride. Her sister, Miss
Aileen Frank, of San Francisco, who
has been visiting Mrs. Brandeis for
several weeks, assisted the little
Omaha woman in getting the ballet
ready for the public performance. Miss
Frank helped design the costumes of
the children also.
Mrs. Brandeis originally planned the
called anti-war pamphlets which were
printed in Chicago at his direction

committee of the socialist organization.

involved in any anti-draft conspiracy.
The government has charged that
the pamphlet sent out contained dis
loyal utterances. Germer declared
that he did not consider the pamphlet
disloyal and testified that it was not
sent out for the purpose of inducing
young men to oppose the selective
ballet to be given for a Red Cross
benefit and had trained the little
dancers especially for this purpose. So
many Red 'Cross affairs have been
given, however, that it was deemed
wisest by local authorities not to make
any more demafids for funds in the
name of the Red Cross.
"The children were so disappointed.
They had looked forward to their 'de
but' so eagerly, we decided to give the
performance rh the Brandeis stores,"
said Mrs. Brandeis.
Besides the flance in honor of Cin
derella, there will be interpretive danc
ing with much pantomine work. The
children will appear in several dif
ferent costumes, besides the Rus
sian. The photograph of the little danc-
ers, with Mrs. Brandeis and her sister,
