CUT OFF SUPPLY
OF GOAL FROM
Schools, Churches and Thea
ters Will Receive No
More Fuel After
An order cutting off the supply of
coal from schools, churches, non-essential
industries, and places of
amusement was issued yesterday by
W. M. Jeffers, chairman of the
terminal coal committee. The order
goes into effect Friday at 7 a. m,
"While the city is not entirely
without coal, there is no sign of
relief in the near future," said Mr.
Jeffers. "and the order was im
perative. Some schools may have
sufficient coal to remain open for
a short time, and the order will be
retracted at the moment we have
assurances that it is safe."
Burn Domestic Coal.
That the situation has become
very acute in the city is indicated by
the fact that many steam plants,
heating large buildings, are burning
domestic coal. This, in itself,
necessitates drastic action, accord
ing to members of the coal com
mittee. . Buckingham, general manager
ot the Union Stock Yards Co., said
yesterday that he was experiencing
some difficulty in securing coal to
run switch engines in the yards. If
switching should be stopped the en
tire packing industry on the South
Side would be at a standstill, it is
Trains on the Rock Island and
Santa Fe lines are burning nothing
but coal which has been stored for
many months, and as a result trains
on these lines are running behind
schedules, for firemen must shovel
double the amount of stored coal to
secure the same heat as is secured
by fresh coal.
Curtailed to Minimum.
In explanation to the order issued
yesterday cutting off coal from
schools and churches Chairman Jef
"The rapid depletion of the coal
supply makes it absolutely necessary
for distribution of coal to the retail
dealers, as well as industries, to be
curtailed to the minimum to avoid
entirely running out of coal and
thereby producing actual suffering
in the homes, hospitals, hotels, of
fice buildings and other public in
stitutions. "Public utilities must also be pro
vided witli coal. It has become nec
essary to stop the delivery of coal
to schools, churches, places of
amusement and non-essential indus
tries. Statement to Dealers.
To properly supervise the dis
tribution of coal the following in
structions were issued by Chairman
Jeffers to all coal dealers in Greater
Omaha and Council Bluffs: ,
"Effective 7 a. m., November 21,
bituminous and lignite coal may be
delivered by dealers in Greater
Omaha and Council Bluffs only
upon written application in each in
stance by the purchaser to a dealer
and approved by this office.
"Forms of application may be had
upon request at this office. These
applications are of two kinds, viz:
'Application for Commercial Coal,'
and 'Application for Domestic Coal.'
"These applications are to be
made out in detail in duplicate, and
orieinal and duplicate must be filed
together. If approved, the original
will be retained and the duplicate
w;th written approval thereon will
be returned to dealer as authority
for specific delivery.
Signed W. M. JEFFERS '
"Chairman, Sub-coal Committee."
Situation In Schools.
W T. Bourke, secretary of the
board of education, stated that
tlre is an average supply of coal
to last two weeks in the public
"I am now sending a request to
all ianitors to report coal on hand
Friday of this week," said Mr.
Bourke. "Some schools may have
more than two weeks' supply and
some may have less, but I would
say that the average would be two

STREET CAR MEN
FOR AN INCREASE
Directors Predict Amicable Set

Representatives of the street car
men's union yeiterday presented de
mands for a wage increase of 5 cents
an hour to officials of the Omaha
and Council Bluffs Street Railway
company. The union men, headed
by Ben Short, president, were in
conference with R. A. Leussler, gen
eral manager, and W. A- Smith, act
ing president of the company, for
almost an hour.
"We have nothing to say on the
situation at the present time," de
clared Short, at the close cf the con
ference. "We asked the company
for an increase in wages and they
have promised to consider it."
The present controversy is the
result of an agreement made by the
company with the men in August,
when the union demanded a wage
increase. They were granted a 10
cent raise at that time, after a 7
cent fare had been secured, and re
turned to work on the condition that
the matter of further wage increases
should lie taken up in 90 days.
Directors Meet Friday.
Acting President Smith will call
a meeting of the board of directors
next Friday, he said, to consider the
requests of the men. He would not
comment on the situation.
R. A. Leussler said the men -had
merely inquired whether the com
pany was able 0 pay more money.
They made no written demands, he
declared, but asked for an increase
up to 5 cents an hour.
The men assumed a reasonable
attitude, he said, and did not de
mand a flat S-cent increase, but
whatever increase the company
could give up to 5 cents."
"Taking Sensible View."
"We will have the auditor make
a report on the matter at the Fri
day meeting of the board of di
rectors," he said. "Until then I
can't say what the company will be
able to do."

HOW TO JUDGE A WOMAN
BY HER HAIR
There is real common sense in just
noticing whether the hair is well
kept to judge of a woman's neat
ness, or good taste. If you are one
of the few who try to make the most
of your hair, remember that it is
not advisable to wash the hair with
any c ' anser made for all purposes,
but alu ays use some good shampoo.
You can enjoy the very best by get
ting some canthrox from your drug

of hot water. This makes a full cup
of shampoo liquid, enough so it is
easy to apply it to all the hair in
stead of just the top of th head.
Dandruff, excess oil, and dirt are
dissolved and entirely disappear.
Your hair will be so fluffy tnat it
will look much heavier than it is.
Its luster and softness will also de
