City Health Commissioner Man
ning, after 4 conference with a rep
resentative of the State Board of
Health, made the following inter
pretation of the state-wide closing
order for the control of the Spanish
influenza epidemic, the regulations
being specifically made for , the
guidance of Omaha people:
All public gatherings, Dotn in
doors and outdoors, are prohibited
until at least November 2. A pub
lic Catherine: is interpreted to in
clude any assembly over 12. This
includes picture shows, theaters,
churches, lodges, schools, both pub
lic and private, commercial, dental
and medical colleges. Attendance
at funerals must be limited to the
relatives, with no church services.
All political meetings, both in
doors and outdoors, are also pro
"Crowds on street cars must be
limited, so far as possible. To ac
complish this it is urged that per
sons who can use the cars at other
than rush hours, do so, thereby dis
tributing the traffic over a longer
period. It is further advised that
downtown stores agree upon a clos
ing hour, possibly 4 or 4:30 o clock,
which will enable their employes to
use the cars betore tne general
rush begins at 5 o'clock.
Keep Windows Open.
"VViiiflrwiro -in strppr rars must be
pkept open regardless of the weather.
Street car conductors will be re
quired to enforce this rule.
1 "No matter if the weather gets
quite cold it is of extreme impor
tance that the street car windows be
kept open," said Dr. Manning.
"People dressed warmly enough for
the street can sit in a street car with
the windows open for a few minutes
without discomfort. It is better to
do that than to catch the influenza.
"Stores must keep windows open
and do everything to keep air cir
culating. People who do not have
to travel on the street cars should
stay at home. When they go any
where they should walk if possible.
If the stores can arrange an earlier
closing hour so that their employes
and shoppers will get home before
the office and factory rush starts, it
will help much."
Dr. Manning has received numer
ous letters congratulating him on
his initiative in ordering Omaha
closed up before the epidemic gained
much start. One of the letters is
an enthusiastic one from Manager
Johnson of the Gayety theater.
iTwenty-six deaths from Spanish
influenza were reported to tlie health
department in the 24 hours ending
luesday morning and there were
three others from pneumonia.
About 100 new cases were report
ed during the day.
Urges Citizens of Swedish
Origin to Support Man Who
Will Support President
as Patriotic Duty.
Speaking of the congressional sit
uation in this district, Alfred Bloom,
president of The Alfred Bloom com
pany, said to The Bjt reporter:
"It is my firm belief that every
American citizen of Swedish birth
or Swedish origin owes a patriotic
duty to this country to vote for
Albert W. Jefferis for congress. We
do not by any means perform our
full duty when we subscribe for
Liberty bonds or contribute to the
various war funds.
"We are equally performing an
obligation of patriotism when we
select men of ability to represent us
in our great national legislature,
which not only spends the money
that we subscribe and contribute,
but which assists the president in
the conduct of the war, and which
will also assist him in solving the
great problems that will come with
the reconstruction period following
the war. In my judgment, we have
never had a more able man han
Albert W. Jefferis running for con
gress from this district, and if we
full justice to ourselves and to
our common country, he will be
elected without any real contest.
Those few unthinking persons
who talk about returning our pres
ent congressman because he is a
democrat and because he will sup
port the president, should remember
that he voted against the president
on the McLemore resolution, for
which the president ordered several
so them democrats to stay at home.
They should also remember that the
210 republican members of the lower.
house of congress have been abso
lutely and at all times loyal to the
president; and if that is not suffi
cient, they should also remember
that General John J. Pershing, com
mander of the two million Ameri
can troops in France, is a republi
can, and that he is standing by the
war to the utmost limit, and that
he is standing by the president, and
that his loyalty can not possibly be
exceeded even by that of the presi
dent himself. The president has had
to complain of many democratic
congressmen, but up to the present
time he has had no reason to com
plain 'of any republican congress

school at Lincoln who were suffer

twelve room farm home open to
them as a hospital, and saw to it
that th boys had both proper care
and food. About x20 of the men,
mostly from Omaha, at the school
were ill with the disease when she
had them brought in for care. She
was unable to get help and tele
phoned to her daughter, Mrs. C. F.
Alger of Omaha and asked if she
would not come down and do the
cooking for the boys. Mrs. Alger
did not need the second invitation.
She went immediately and passed
nearly two weeks with her mother
nursing these boys back to health.
All have now recovered from the
disease and are able to be about
again, so that at this time there is
no "flu" at the wireless school.
Needless to say that the boys can
not say enough in praise of the

home to them and nursed them, and
to her daughter who saw to it that
they had good wholesome food.
