Glee Club to Sing Here
For Good Service
We Will Have Three Times the
Sales Force for This Event.
"The Chamber of Commerce is the
bunch we are after," declared Secre
tary John Gibb of the Building
Trades council yestreday just
after a committee of labor heads had
authorized mailing of a circular to
15,000 Omaha families friendly to
union labor, calling on them to boy
colt stores "unfriendly" to unionism.
"The Chamber of Commerce," de
clared Mr. Gibb, "has done all it can
to make Omaha an 'open shop city
and to abolish onions. It has even
advised members who own stores to
demand cash from all laboring men
Mho are now holding out against the
20 per cent wage reduction which
the contractors demand be put into
Credit Withdrawn.
"Already we are forced to buy
many things outside of the city be
cause ot the withdrawal of credit.
There will he no hardship in confin
ing our trade in groceries, hardware,
furniture, etc., to two certain stores,
because wc get 25 to 40 per cent dis
count on Mich things at those stores."
Mr, Gibb said the various unions
have $600,000 on deposit in Omaha
banks. This is to be withdrawn, he
."aid. The boycott will continue, he
declared, until the "big interests"
recognize the demands of union labor
and prevent the lowering of wages in
building trades.
. David Larson, commissioner of
the Chamber of Commerce, denied
that the chamber had taken any ac
tion in the way alleged by Mr. Gibb.
Plan Co-Operative Bank.
"The Chamber of Commerce has
carefully kept clear of any contro
versy with union men regarding
wages or making Omaha an 'open
shop' city," he said.
Labor unions of Omaha Friday
night took first steps looking to pos
sible establishment of a co-operative
bank as part of their contemplated
action to boycott all local banks.
This is a development of the pres
ent differences between the building
trades unions and the building con
tractors on the wage question.
The meeting of Central Labor
union also voted to boycott all local
grocery and dry goods stores with
the exception of two, Bradley, Mer-
riam & Smith and the Farmers Union
State exchange which recently
opened a retail department.
15,000 Affected.
Union men say this endorsement of
the boycott resolution by Central
Labor union means that between
10,000 and 15,000 men are under im
mediate obligations to cease buying
at the boycotted stores.
Regarding the proposed- bank
Secretary Gibb of the Building
Trades council, said that farm
bodies, particularly the Nonpartisan
league, will co-operate in establish
ment of such an institution.
farmer Declines Citation;
Fears Epithet "Stool Pigeon"
William II. Franssen of St. Libory,
Neb., appeared in the federal prohibi
tion officer at Omaha yesterday to
"let the world know" that he was not
one of those "jiggers they call a stool
Mr. Franssen had been cited in a
report to Washington for meritorious
work accorded federal prohibition
officers in assisting them to round up
alleged moonshiners.
"I helped them, but I didn't squeal
on any one," the healthy farmer de
clared. Mr. Franssen also denied that he
was the person who purchased
liquor from two bellboys at the
Hotel Paxton. .
Mr. Franssen also resents the re
port that he was a member of the
"flying .squadron" of federal sleuths
that operated in Omaha two months
Congregational Churches
' Condemn Censorship Veto
The Elkhorn Valley association,
composed of ministers and delegates
representing 30 Congregational
churches, condemned Governor Mc
Kelvie for vetoing the moving pic
ture censorship bill.
"He uses the same line of logic in
e'efending his action as was used in
defending the saloon," say the reso
lutions, "and says in effect that if
men don't want their wives, sisters
and children insulted they should
keep them away from places where
men of careless conscience roam un
restricted." State Sheriffs Car Stolen;
Recovered by Omaha Sleuths
Up from Lincoln late Friday came
terrible news.
Thieves had stolen Gus Hyers'
Gus is the state sheriff and the
Nemesis of bootleggers and other
evil doers.
Gus was mad. Nobody could blame
him. o 1
But, anyway, early yesterday Act
ing Chief of Detectives Pszanowski
got information and a short time
later Detectives Danbaum and Palm
tag found Gus' car abandoned at
Twenty-fourth and Pratt streets.
Committee Named to Plan
Nebraska Farmer Union
Following a conference of dele
gates from various Nebraska farm
organizations and co-operative socie
ties at the Castle hotel Friday after
noon, relative to forming a new or
ganization which will eliminate many
similar organizations in Nebraska,
Chairman John Fraser of the Mid
west Milk Producers' association ap
pointed a committee to work out a
plan of organization which will be
submitted to a mass meeting of
farmers to be held in Omaha soon.
Banquet to Be Held in

kins, commissioner-elect, will be
given by ex-service men and other
Hopkins workers at the Paxton ho

Hamburg Light Rates
Raised by Compromise
Hamburg, la., May 6. (Special.)
The law suit which the Hamburg
Electric company brought against
the city of Hamburg in an effort to
raise their rates was settled by com
promise. Some time ago the electric com
pany endeavored to raise their rates
from 15 cents a kilowatt to 18 cents,
but the city council refused as the
light plant's franchise fixed the rate
at 15 cents.
Hamburg's electric current will
cost 17 cents per kilowatt unless the
patrons wait until after the 10th of
the month to pay their bill, when it
will cost 18 cents.
The company also furnishes juice
for Riverton, and recently received
a raise in rates to 19 cents.
A typewriter has been invented
that sets up a line of type before it
is printed, the printing being done
with the type itself without the use
of a ribbon.
Price of Posies Hiked
For Mothers' Day Here
Weeping skies cannot dampen the
fervor with which Mothers' day will
be observed in Omaha today.
Florists were deluged with orders
from those who wish to "say it with
flowers" to mother.
The price of single white carna
tions or roses jumped to 25 cents
for the occasion. White sweet peas
arc $1 per bunch.
"Our supply of white flowers may
not hold out hjit we have plenty of
colored blooms," several florists re
ported. A white flower is worn for the
mother who is dead and a colored
bloom for the living mother.
"It is 'fathers' day' in our
family," said Mrs. A. D. Peters, 124
North Thirty-eighth avenue. "To
day is Mr. Peters' birthday." m

engine assemblers is a pneumatic

Willis G. Scars, juvenile judyc.
threatened to have pretty Miss Eva
Brown, University Place, Neb.,
thrown into the county jail unless
$hc made an instant apology for im
precations she had hurled at the
court, during yesterday's session.
Miss Brown came to Omaha
yesterday to defend her sister, Doro
thy Brown, 16, of 524 North Seven
teenth street, who was charged wit'i
associating with vicious and immoral
people. She was accompanied bv
her elderly father, W. T. Brown.
Judge Sears sentenced Dorothy to
the Geneva home tor girls.
Judge Beats Desk.
According to court attaches the
sentence brought forth loud abuse
from both the father and sister
against the court here and its work
Mrs. Alice Hopkins, wife of John
Hopkins, city commissioner-elect,
and Judge Scars, himself, drew
more than their share of the abuse,
it is said.
Judge Sears rushed from a prl
vate room where he had heard the
case into his main court room. He
was followed by ' the sister, now
sobbing, and the father. He seated
himself and struck his desk.
Three Thumps; No Word.
"I want an immediate apology for
that sort of talk." he declared
"Never again will I tolerate uch
language against the court.
Miss Brown continued to sob.
"I'll count three and if I don't
have an apology I'll have you put
in the county jail," the judge
threatened angrily.
He thumped the desk thrice,
loudlv. and still no apology.
"Officer take this girl to the coun
ty jail," he ordered.
A court officer advanced, took the
sobbing Miss Brown by the arm, and
was about to lead her away when
the father interceded.
Gasps Apology.
"We're sorry for what we said,"
he told the judge.
"I'm not asking you for an apol
ogy," retorted the judge. "Take her
on, officer no", give her one more
"I I'm sorry," gasped Miss
Brown between sobs.
She was released, and was led
from the court by her father.
