R. B. Howell, general manager of

paying for coal, coke and oil. Mr.
Butler replied that his figures were
based on last year s operation.
Mr. HoSvell produced figures to

cent higher. ' V

Present Other Side in
Grain . Price Situation
the federal land bank has been tied
up m the courts it has been harder
to get money, and interest rates
have gone up."
It is pointed out that very lanre
crops have been-raised on the cheap
lands iri western Nebraska, western
Kansas and- Colorado. Even at
$1.50 a bushel some farmers would
receive as ,high as $45 an acre for
their wheat In some cases in
western counties this is as much as
their land is selling for. These men
are shipping their wheat as fast as
they can get cars, and will probably
continue to do so."
At the Omaha fcrain exchange the
prevalent idea is that the ultimate
price of grain will depend on the
ige of grai
ifity of the
railroads to furnish the
cars when the farmers are ready to
ship. Some claim that if the bulk
of the grain is held off, prices will
ys even lower next fall. If- the
armers ship some of their ,frain
now, what they have left over prob
ably will brinsr more next year, ac-;
cording to this explanation.
Argentine Crop Coming.
Countries needing to import grain
are hard up, and if the prices should
be forced too high, in various way
they would contrive to Bret alone
without purchasing a great deal, ac
cording to export dealers. Much
grain for export has already been
bought and arranged for.
Another factor that will influence
the price of American grain is the
Argentine ,narvest, which comes
January. Should this crop be large,
the price of American grain might
go off in spite of all efforts to keep
In spite of the movement to hold
the crop for a set price, wheat would
now be coming to market in larger
quantities jf the railroads could sup
ply the cars, according to J. W.
Shorthill, former secretary of the
Nebraska .Farmers Grain Dealers'
"There are two sentiments among
the farmers," said Mr. Shorthill to
day. "One is the belief that it is
wrong to dump grain oh the market
in great quantities and that the time
is past when farmers in Nebraska
would market 75 per cent of their
wheat in 90 days. The other is to
withhold the grain from the market
and setting an arbitrary price below
which it will not be sold.
"I don't hesitate to say that this
policy of setting an arbitrary price
and hold in ir until it is obtained
wuld probably jiot be successful. A J
movement of that kind mignt woric
against the farmer, for the chances
are two to one that he would miss
his guess and have to sell at a lower
price." - '-- -

Over Cinder Bill
Roy N. Towl Cites , This City
Hail "Ball Up" as Argu
ment for Managerial
Roy N. Towl, city commissioner in
charge of the department of public
improvements, says, that there is an
abundance of arguments, in favor of
the city manager plan of city gov
ernment which has been indorsed
by The Bee. . .
"I am for this plan of municipal
government for Omaha because of
the experience I have- had during
my service as city commissioner,
said Mr. lowl, who then detailed a
recent incident in point
"The placing of 1wo "carloads of
cinders on Eighteenth street, Doug
las street to Capitol avenue, for a
temporary street surface during the
Ak-Sar-Ben season, offers a striking
illustration of the inadequacy of the
commission form of" city govern
ment to function expeditiously," Mr.
It's All a Mess.
i lit cyiauicu uiai iiic idling ui
these cinders involved the mayor's
office and the department of street
maintenance, parks and boulevards,
accounts and finance and public im
provements, -and it is not yet deter
mined out of which fund the expense
of $270 shall be paid. r
In the first instance the mayor
took the initiative by asking, the
Union Pacific to furnish the cinders,
which was not done. Then Mr. Towl
arranged with a contractor to haul
the tinders from a trackage location,
the bill for this service being $270.
The improvement being in1 the nature
of street maintenance, ,Mr. Towl
thought that Commissioner Butler's
department would bear at least half
of the expense, but Mr. Butler could
not see.it that way. Commissioner
Falconer of the park department fur
nished a roller to level the cinders.
Commissioner Ure of the finance de
partment .objected to the payment of
the expense out of the general fund.
';V' Everybody "Passes Buck." v
"I am not criticizing any commis
sioner for his position in this mat
ter, but I am offering this case as an
instance of how as comparatively
small matter is passed back and forth
from one department to the other.
There are many other instances of a
similar nature, i There is too much
temptation to 'pass theMuck' under
the commission form of government
as it now "operates.

department is directed to do a cer
tain thing, it would be attended to at
once and a definite respdnsibility

; Van Wert, O , Oct. 14. A new
line of attack upon former President
Taft's position on the league of na
tions was made here today by Gov
ernor Cox n opening a three days'
campaign in his-home state.
, Referring to Judge Taft's state
ment, even in event r of Governor
Cox's election' there -would remain
enough republican senators to de
feat the treaty, the democratic pres
idential candidate here today de
clared this indicated a plan to dis
regard a decision in the "league ref
erendum.' "This can mean ,bnly one thing,"
said Governor Cox, "that when I am
elected cm a straightforward plat
form favoring the league it is the
purpose ot the brazen conspirators
in the senate to treat the mandate
of the people with contempt and
turn their backs on the expressed
will of the electorate. This, in the
first place, is unthinkable, and in the
second place, will not be permitted,
for, after all, this is a democracy
and tne will of the people is tri
, On the other hand, the gover
nor; continued, "if the candidate of
the senatorial oligarchy were to be
elected because he favors staying out
of the league and then after his as
sumption of office were to turn about
face and propose entering the league,
what about the popular mandate and
the referendum then? What would
Borah and Johnson say, and what
would the . voters of the country
think about such repudiation of their
will? iThe time is now for us to re
mind ourselves . and. think seriously
of the fact that the government of
the United States is a government

may be willing to scrap the league,
but the American -people, are not

The police are working on the the
ory that a number of murders and
shooting cases which occurred in tbe
vicinity of the "market" resulted
from competition among the "brok

stances men had been cajled out of
saloons and "speak easies" and at

Although there was ,a noticeable
absence of activity last night on the
tour corners where the leaders of
the bootleggers' ring operated the
contraband market, the automobile
truck lines were as long as ever.
All of the vehicles were occupied
by young men, for the most part
Italians. They showed every evi
dence of prosperity, diamonds
sparkling on their fingers and in
their cravats, They carried ' on
whispered conversations in Italian
with acquaintances in the street.
Persons claiming to be familiar
with the operations of ": the "curb

not cause leaders to terminate their
activities. '' , V
The market, however, was not in
