THE OMAHA SUNDAY BEE: NOVEMBER 11, 1917.
J. J. Cameron, Local Secretary,
Advocates Licensing of
Shops; Action Would Re-
duce Price of Food.
Revolutionary changes in the
supervision of grocery stores in Oma
ha are predicted within a short time
by J. J. Cameron, secretary of the
Omaha Retail Grocers' and Retail
The reduction of the number of
Krocery stores in Omaha from its
present number of 560 to a minimum
of 300 is one of the reforms pre
dicted and ured by Secretary Carfl
eron, the measure assuring the con
sumers of Omaha at least a 5 per
cent reduction in foodstuffs.
"We do not advocate putting any
Rroceryman out of business," declared
Mr. Cameron, "but merely to prevent
others, who know absolutely nothing
about the stock they handle, from
opening corner stores which of
necessity must be an expensive ex
periment to the neighbors. From fif
teen to twenty grocery stores are
changing hands monthly in Omaha,
and by licensing each grocer $100 we
could cut down these fly-by-night

"The average number of customers
for each Omaha grocery store is 81.
lie cannot sell as cheap as a store
with 300 customers." before wc un
derstood an up-to-date credit system,
grocery men of Omaha worked on a
25Nper cent basis, because of the
tremendous credit they carried. That
has been sharply reduced, and now
the majority work on a 20 per cent
Mr. Cameron believes that eventu
ally there will be means of limiting
the number of grocery stores oper
ated in the different cities according
to the population of each. 'This will
require all grocers to make the same
price for each article sold, in that rase
a standard service being established
that all grocers must maintain in or
. der to handle their trade on a regu
Ccst of Business Same.
The cost of doing business in all
stores will thus be made practically
the same. Efficiency will be the only
competition in the grocery line, de
If the general plan of Secretary
Cameron goes through clerks will be
required to show their certificates as
thoroughly experienced, efficient and
i first-class salesmen in making appli
cations for position and parties wish
ing to engage in the business must
have a permit showing their qualifica
tions, ability and financial standing.
Another requirement would be a san
itary, clean and spotless store and
itandardized from cellar to roof in
ivery detail. Delivery service will be
cut down to one , day and be re
ttricted to certain blocks within a
liven limit of each store.

administration slonz the lines of the

Taken From Police.
They were fined $100 each and com
mitted to jail. The police arrested six
others who had appeared as witnesses
itt the trial of the original 11 and who
had admtted on the stand that they
belonged to the Industrial Workers
of the World. After a conference of
police court officials it was decided to
take the entire party to their head
quarters and exact from them a prom
ise to leave the city before morning, in
which event their fines would be sus
pended. As the motor cars neared Industrial
Workers of the World hall a num
ber of the "Knights of Liberty"
jumped from behind a pile of bricks
and with levelled rifles and revolvers
ordered the drivers to stop. None of the
policemen had a chance to reach for
his gun, as they were surrounded by
The Industrial Workers of the

hands tied and the drivers ordered to

Tarred in Circle of Light.
The automobiles in the party were
placed in a circle with their lights
shining on an oak tree. The seven
teen Industrial Workers of the
World were made to strip to the
waist. The knights stood guard with
guns pointed at each man. One by
one the ropes were taken from their
wrists and they were tied to a big
tree. One of the party stepped for
ward with a lash and applied it until
the blood ran. Then another stepped
up with a whitewash brush and a pot
of boiling tar. This was applied over
the back deliberately. Several hand
fuls of feathers were then thrown
into the tar.
The Industrial Workers of the
World talked but little during the
ceremony. Several of them boldly
proclaimed their allegiance to the In
Industrial Workers of the World.
An old man pleaded for mercy. "1
have lived here for 18 years," he said,
"and have raised a large family. I
am not an Industrial Worker of

The frightened and half naked men
ran in their bare feet through the
brush as members of tho "Knights"
fired volley after volley into the air.
The captured officers stated tonight
there were fully 50 men in the party
that participated in the whipping.
