Cattle Tho run of cattle was rather lib
eral for a Friday. 4,200 head, and the five
days' supply, 31,000 head, has been fully
7,500 heavier than a wreck ago. Trade was
rather slow and while desirable beeves of
all weights sold about the same as on
Thursday the market was 10c lower, and in
some cases more on the medium and com
mon steers. The same was true as to cows
and heifers. In other words, the week's
25&50c advance has been well sustained on
the desirable killing stock and prices have
shaded off a little on the common light
and medium weight steers that have been
selling so well recently. Business In stock
ers mid feeders was active and prices Strong,
fully 25Cf40o higher for the week.

R0TARIAN "SHANGHAIED" FOR
D. C. Buell Commissioned Lieutenant for
Supervision of Special War Machinery
SERVICE IN UNCLE SAM'S NAVY
"Papa's a policeman," delightfully
shouted the children of D. C. Buell
of the Railway Educational bureau,
1203 Farnam street, when he came
home attired in a natty blue uniform.
The elevat-r boy in the National Fi
delity and Casualty company build
ing when he entered immediately
asked, "Where is the band going to
Employes of the bureau guessed
nearer the truth, however, and all
were lined up in orderly line at his
approach and, saluting, shouted in uni
son, "Good morning, admiral." Their
chief immediately disallusioned them
with the information that he was only
a senior lieutenant, notwithstanding
the mass of gold braid with which his
uniform was decorated.
"I was shanghaied," was the only
explanation that Lieutenant Buell
would give as to his sudden appear
ance in Omaha as an officer in Uncle
Sam's navy. Employes who have al
ready ordered a special service flag
proved more communicative and be
tween salutes as their chief passed
confided the purpose of the uniform.
In civilian life Mr. Duel' has beeri
pressed into various activities to as

was called to Chicago to confer with
PACKERS CITE SALOON
AS THE CAUSE OF POVERTY
Government Economist Says Employes Working Long
Hours Need Stimulant of Liquor; Drinking
Will Cease Only With Coming of
(By Associated Press.)
" Chicago, Feb. 22. Attention of Judge Alschuler, arbi
trator in the stockyards wage dispute, was directed today to the
saloon as an important element in the controversy.
In questioning Bertha M. Nienberg, associate economist of
the bureau of applied economics of Washington, D. C, At
torney G. Condon, representing the packers, stated that resi
dents of the district "back of the yards" contributed more than
$1,000,000 a year in support of 300 saloons in 150 square
SmPTTR FiPiNV MONEY O
Miss Nienberg had submitted in
evidence a budget showing that in
1S17 it cost $1,177.95 to support a
family of five in the stockyards dis
.."Do you think it would take as
much for a saloon keeper to support
a family of five as it would take a
stockyards employe?" asked Attorney
The witness said she believed it
"Well there are 300 saloons in ISO
square blocks of the yards and each
saloon pays $1,000 a year license,
has his rent to pay and hire a bar
tender as well as support his fam
ily," said the attorney.
"This means that it takes more
than $1,000,000 a year to keep these
saloons going and that the money
comes from the residents of the dis
trict who are largely stock yards em
ployes. Don't you think if the men
spent less in these saloons they
might have more to contribute to the
support and comfort of their fam
ilies?" "My answer to that question is that
there will never be less drinking
back of the stock yards until the men
work shorter hours and are not so
worn out at the end of the day that
they are forced to seek relief by us
ing alcoholic stimulants and until
they receive higher wages," replied
"You think then that the more
money men earn the less they drink?"
inquired the lawyer.
"Investigations made by sociologi
cal workers bear out this theory,"
said Miss Nienberg.
Attorney Condon attempted to
show that in coal and iron minitiR
centers and in steel mills districts
where men received the highest
wages drunkenness was more pre
valent than in sections where work
men received lower pay but the wit
ness declined to admit the truth l
The witness explained that the fig
ures of her model budget were lowet
than the bare existence standard al
lowed in budgets of other cities. She
said the cost of living in New York
was 8 per cent higher.
The average of this lowest budget
outside of Chicago was, she said,
$1,434.64. The next budget discussed
was described as the minimum
health budget and called for the an
nual expenditure of $1,506 in the
maintenance of a family of five. The
next was called the minimum health
and comfort or ideal budget and to
taled $1,611.13 for the year.
These various budgets, she ex
plained, had been prepared by ex
perts and approved by arbitrators in
several important labor disputes. The
$1,506 budget, she said had recently
been accepted by the labor dispute
commissio.i of the United Stales
shipping bureau in fixing wages of
shipbuilders in the Philadelphia dis
trict. Testimony already heard at the
stockyards wage case showed that
the present average pay received by
unskilled laborers is $800 a year.
Attorneys for the packers vig
orously attacked the family budgets
ground that they were excessive
and that a survey recently made in
Chicago for the government board
appointed to fix wages of railroad
employes showed a family of five
could live in Chicago for $758 a year.
Counsel for the employes expect
to close their direct case tomorrow.
The packers will take four or five
days to present their case.
