Cannot Fire Bad Policemen
, Police Commissioner Ringer
spoke before the church Federation

on the force who try to enforce the

not to enforce them," he said. "The
bad ones have been appointed in
years past,, by the powers which
worked for the harm of the city.
And now they cannot be discharged
except by a majority vote of the
city council, no matter how ineffi
cient or worthless they may be."
Speaking of the hospital for wo
men suffering with social disease,
he declared it is'one of the greatest
reforms ever inaugurated in Omaha.
"And we expect soon to reach the

ing to be a very decided readjust
ment of pur grain markets because
of war time restrictions, and those
restrictions must be removed, and
we must in some way get back to
normal business basis of market
ing grain. Another thing to be con
sidered is the readjustment or the
transportation proposition." Mr.
Shorthill said he diduiot refer to
government control of Jhe railroads
particularly, but to price conditions
confronting the 'middle western
markets who are subjected to the
long rail haul, in competition with
the South American producers, for
European business, and 'who employ
nearly entirely water transportation.
A program has been arranged to
cover the three days' period. Tues

enza cases are reported, some plain
truancv cases, many cold, for which
the children are sent home; a few
