Central Truck Loading Station
: Location to Be Chosen by
1 Committee Named on
At the regular weekly meeting
Thursday of the executive commit
tee of the return loads bureau of the
Chamber of Commerce, which is
stimulating the use of auto trucks in
delivering merchandise to nearby
towns, three problems were taken
up and will be "pushed to the limit."
The first thing necessary at this
time to make this form of delivery
more successful is to have the coun
try merchant wherever and- when
ever possible order his goods deliv
ered by the trucks. .
1 The other two-problems facing
this bureau is to have men on the
various lines deliver regularly and
to have a central loading station in
Omaha. The latter proposition will
be attended to immediately and a
committee appointed to make the
selection of the location will report
A committee composed of C. E.
Stallard, W. Saunders and W. W.
Killer was also appointed to perfect
the classification and rate system,
which will be similar to the railroad
system. At present the same rate is
charged on all merchandise, whether
it is nails or delicate millinery,

Claims Preferred by
Negotiations for the settlement
of claims preferred against the Lion

former employes, who once formed
the suborganization of "The Lion's
Heads," and who are now known as
"The Lion's Tails," are still in prog
ress. President Volpp, of Scribner, is in
the city, presumably looking the
situation over. He had an earnest
conference with Arthur Mullen at

a member of "The Lion's Tails,"
and who stated in an interview with
a Bee reporter that he had severed
his connection with the company in
February of the present year, is al
leged to have been carried on the
payroll of the concern for a number
of month at a salary of $200 per
His position, it is said, was
manager of the accident department
but the duties of the place, it is said

time he was given his new position.
