Mellon Orders
Check of Stock in
. . Printing Bureau
All Work on Stamp and Rank
Notfi Suspended Pending
Inventory Millions of
Dollar Inolfd.
Washington, Aprd 9 Tart of the
bureau e( engraving and printing
rforganiied last week under an
execulitf order by rrfiideiit Hard
ing, removing James ! Wilmrth,
II director, nj other high of
ficials, was ordered closfd Ly i
Secretary Mellon for an imcii
lory of the fork valued at many
million! of dollar.
Mr. Mellon' order applied only
to the divisions of the bureau which
handle the paper ucd in nuking
bank note, stamps and govcrnmci.t
securities, it being explained that a
quicker and more accurate check of
the paper stork could be made by a
temporary halting of all paper work.
About l,$ft employe of the bureau
force of 6,000 Mould ordinarily bs
affected by the order, officials a!d,
but about f"0 will be used at count
er and all others having annual
leave to their credit will be given the
' benefit of it.
According to Aitant Secretary
of the Treasury Wadsworth. in
charge of the bureau, the inventory
is to be taken a a check of the
Mock on hand in the plant against
the book in inin-h the same fashion
that stock it taken by a manufac
turer for the vear.
Check of the bureau' store of
bank note, stamp, government e
rurities, paper, nlates and other sup
plies, which officials said total an
enormous amount in value, will he
begun tomorrow bv a committee ap
pointed by Mr. Mellon, represent
ing all the departments, such as the
Treasury, federal Reserve hoard
and the Totoffire department,
which have work done at the plant
and a staff of Justice ' department
agents aligned to Louis A.' Hill,
the new director, bv Attorney Gen
eral Daugherty. Mr. . Wadsworth
said he expected the count to' be
completed within a week at the out
side. Whether the result of the inven
tory will he made public, a i cus
tomary when the cash in the treas
ury is counted, has not yet been
considered, according to treasury of
ficials. The report of the Justice
department agents who arc exper
ienced in bank examining' work, it
was said at the department, will be
submitted to Director Burns of the
bureau of investigation who, in turn,
will transmit it to Mr. Daugherty,
from whom it is expected to go to
President Harding.
Farmers Buying,
Delco Firm Finds
Charles E. Wagner, Inc., Ex
ceeds March Business Quota
Named by Factory.
During the month of February
Charles . E.. Wagner, Inc., exceeded
' the quota, established by the Delco
. lighfr factory. manufacturers of
Delco lighting farm equipment,
making a record of 104 per cent.
This was considered rather impos
sible in view of the fact that all of
this equipment was sold to farm
ers and a great many salesmen
throughout this territory had con
sidered the farmer an impossible
prospect'for merchandise other than
actual necessities of life. How
ever, Mr. Wagner made the state
ment, ' at that time, that fanners
were actually in the market for a
great many Commodities and that
they were ready to buy. Mr. Wag
ner also made the assertion that his
March business would exceed the
quota by at least 40 per cent.
Figure Bear Out Prophecy.
The March figures for"the state of
Nebraska have just been returned
to Mr. Wagner from the Delco
factory and bear muie testimony
to the fact that his conclusions were
correct. During the month of March
Mr. Wagner's organization sold 150
per cent of the quota established for
Nebraska by the factory.
This according to Mr. Wagner, is
.conclusive proof that the condition
of the Nebraska farmer is materially
improved and that he is again in a
position to take up his important
.part in, the buying scheme of the
state. As an indication that money is
much freer, Mr. Wagner calls at
tention to six plants which were sold
on the time payment plan. When
these shipments arrived at their des
tination they were paid for in full
and the time payment plan was not
necessary. In each case the amount
of the purchase exceeded $600. This
indicates quite clearly that the
farmers either had the money in the
bank or were in a position to borrow
money from their bankers.
Mental Attitude Wrong.
In discussing this matter further
Mr. Wagfler declares that in a grea
majority of cases the. failure on the
part of salesmen to sell the farmer
is due to their own mental attitude
rather than to the financial condition
of the farmer.
Charles E. Wagner, Russell E.
Wagner and 10 territory salesmen
are leaving Omaha Sunday night for
Dayton, 0., to attend the annual
Delco light sales conference.

April 17 with an objective of no les
than 6.0(H). As the good king gazed
over his land from his throne of
beauty in the courthouse yesterday,
be braved a sigh of hope for a record
roundup, then from his desk took out
a scroll, lie examined it studiously.
Upon it was an outline of the city
of Omaha. With a compass and
pencil King Ak divided the realm
into 12 zones, in each of which he
has appointed a major to assist him
in the roundup.
Majors Are Responsible.
"And upon each of these majors,"
spake jolly King Ak, "I will place
the responsibility of collecting $10
from as many subjects as they can
enroll as members of Ak-Sar-Bcn."
Each major is to have two cap
tains and each captain a team of six
men. King Ak explained. And for
services rendered in the roundup, the
king will be host at the spring races
at Ak-Sar-Ben field to the team that
records the largest number of mem

A resume of Ak-Sar-Ben activities
of the past few years shows that
more men living in South Omaha
were members of the organization
than in any other district in the city.
So go to it, boys, round up my
subjects for 1922 that this year may

is King Ak's order.
ilitary Campaign on
Rum Runners Planned
New York, April 9. (By A. P.)
A military campaign against rum
smugglers along the Canadian bor
der, in which armored motor cars
equipped with machine guns will be
used to combat violators of the law,
is planned by Ralph A. Day, federal
prohibition director for the state,
who made public a letter from J.
Leslie Kincaid, state adjutant gen
eral, pledging his co-operation.
The plan prepared by the adjutant
scneral provides for 37 observation
posts, one on each highway entering
New York Jrom Canada. He otter
ed to supply a machine gun for each
post, which he guaranteed would
"stop anything short of an armored
motor car." The state also would
furnish, he said, armored motor cats
for use of the prohibition forces.

Three tunes at Monterey, Cal.;

Mr, Shewan convinced authorities
that the liquor was' his personal prop

Today one of Mr. Shewan's auto
mobiles driven by William Mayer
was caught in "a traffic jam near
Grand Central station and stopped
behind a tall traffic cop.
Inside the cop saw two bulging
burlap bags. He took the chauffeur
and the car to a station house. In
Y'orkville police court where he was
arraigned on a charge of illegally
transporting liquor, Mayer furnished
bond and was released pending ex
amination Monday. The bags con
tained 60 quarts of champagne and
a quantity of Cuban rum.

Chairman Hull
Launches 1922
Political Drive
Democratic Leader Opens
Campaign in Speech Be
fore Jane- Jeffenon
Chili of Denver.
Denver. April 9. Cordcll Hull of
Chattanooga, Ttnn., chairman of the
democratic national commit
tee, launched the 1922 democrat!;
caninaicn in Colorado in a speech
at the Jefferson day banquet of the
Jane Jefferson club last night, lie
flayed the Harding administration,
charged the republicans with failure
to make good on conipaign pledges
and predicted a democratic victory
next November in every state and
in national politics in 1924.
Republican expenditures and taxa
tion were keys upon which Mr. Hull
plaved repeatedly.
"The country is badly out of joint
politically. economically, socially
and morally." he said.
Co-Operation Essential.
Volutins out that the war left th:
public mind confused and bewilder
ed. Mr. Hull said that in order to
brine the nation back to normal con
ditions it was all-important that each
political rarty co-operate unselfishly
in the task of restoring an euucaiei
and sound public opinion.
"Far from pursuing tins course,
he said, "but taking the direct oppo
site, reactionary republican leaders
in their selfish greed for power, as
early as 1918 formed a conspiracy to
further demoralize public tnougnt
and debauch the public mind as the
only means of discrediting the dem
ocratic administration and regaining
control of government.
Scores Leaders.
"The orcscnt-dav republican pat
ty bears no resemblance to the re
oublican party, of Lincoln, Grant
and Garfield," Mr. Hull asserted.
and besides is bankrupt in leaders,
in principles and in morals. Since
the November election of 1920. the
American people have suffered in
dustrial nanie and losses of more
than $40,000,000 losses greater than
those of all other panics combined.
As witnesses I call the millions of
idle laborers, of impoverished farm
ers and of harassed business men
in every part of the country to offer
solemn testimony to these outstand
ing facts."
Mr. Hull said the republicans nave
failed to create adequate reconstruc
tion legislation and blamed them for
filbustering from March 4, 1919, to
1921 to defeat democratic adminis
tration bills and force an extra ses
sion of congress.
Mrs. Jones May Spend
90 Days in County Jail
Mrs. Rov Jones. 123 Fourth street,
may spend 90 days in the county jail
at Council Bluffs as a result of a plea
of .guilty which she entered
to a charge of maintaining a liquor
nuisance. She was arrested in a raid
upon her home last week by Sum
ner Knox, federal agent.
The woman was fined SoOu, with
an alternative of spending 90 days
in jail. Police are seeking her hus
band, wanted on a similar charge as
a result of the raid, but cannot find
him. Unless he turns up to face the
charge and pay his wife's fine, she
must stay in jail.
300 Music Lovers Enjoy
Second Synchrona Recital
Three hundred Omaha music
lovers attended the second "Syn
chrona recital held at the Schmollcr
& Mueller Piano Co., recital room
Thursday evening. The program
was made up of Omaha artists,

classed as leaders in their chosen
fields. The playing of Karl E. Tun
berg, pianist, was brilliant as were
the singing of Mrs. Lena Ellsworth
Dale and the violin solos by Mrs.,
Ernest A. Reese.'
The concerts have proved so pop
ular that others will be held each
month and local and national artists
will make up the programs, according-
to Mr. W. H. Schmoller, presi
dent of the company. The program
Thursday was as follows:

Youthful Dancers
Appear in Ballet
Pupils of Pleasant Holyokc
Show to Advantage in Re
cital at Brandeis.
In the dame recital Saturday eve
ning at the Brandeis in which her
pupils appeared, Pleasant Holyoke
presented a program .which covered
a wide raiiRC of subject and style,
but which was, on the whole, well
within the ability of her pupils to in
terpret. An especially happy choice
for young performers was the car
nival ballet, in which Jane Ellis. Vir
ginia Langfciner, Frances Cunning
ham and little lla Saltzgiver ap
peared. The light, playful spirit of
the ballet was perfectly carried out.
"The Egyptian Slaves" made a
striking and effective frieze, and
Saturnalia was carried out with
Creek simplicity. 'Most delightful
was the final number, "Rondo Cap
priccioso," which entirely lived up to
its effervescent name. The effects
produced by the scarves were both
original and beautiful, and the dra
peries we're cleverly handled by the
five dancers, lima Bigelow, Jane
Ellis, Frances Ellick, Janet Nolan
and Virginia Langfelner.
"Furlana," a lively peasant dance,
was given by Janet Nolan and
Martha Dox, prettily costumed in
black and white and red.
Of the solo dances, the most ap
plauded was the "Silver Hoop," an
exceptionally charming dance fan
taisy executed with spirit by Janet
If individual honors were bestowed
they would go to Virginia Langfel
ner, who appeared in several of the
proup numbers, with Jane Ellis in
the dainty "Wooing Hour," and in an
original and acrobatic solo dance
called "Policinelle,'' where even the
grotesquerie of her steps and costume
could not hide her slim grace.
Vodicka, in brown, made a grace
ful and appealing butterfly, as sht
flitted about the stage. Ila Saltz
giver, the little soloist, was most self
possessed in her presentation of
"Bubbles," but was even more al

Men Barred From Jury
Service May Carry
. Fight to High Court
Omaha Bee lased Wire.
",Fort Smith, Ark., April 9.
Twelve prominent business men of
this city, who have been "disbarred
forever" from jury service in the
Arkansas courts for acquitting an al
leged bootlegger, threaten to take
their grievance to the United, States
supreme court.
Because of the prominence of the
men, the case is attracting unusual
attention and party lines are being
closely drawn. Five of the "dis
franchised" men are presidents of
large corporations.
The acute situation has not been
helped by the rearrest of June Ma
han, the acquitted man, on charges
of drunkenness and disorderly con
duct. The police say that Mahan and
his friends staged a riotous drunken
orgy in celebration of his victory in
the court.
Charges that the presiding judge
had attempted to intimidate the jur
ors have been followed by the con
tinuance of all other liquor cases
set for this term of court. This was
done, the judge said, to show that
intimidation was not his purpose.

Slave Running Case
Cited as Precedent
in Ruling on Liquor
Hamilton, Ont., April 9. Trans
portation of liquor which was con
signed to an American buyer within
the border, was ruled a breach of
international law . by Magistrate
Jelfs, who cited a slave running case
of 1807 as precedent. He held that
because Ontario and the United
States both had laws prohibiting im
portation and sale of liquor, Her
bert G. Guess of Bridgeburg had
committed an act likely to endanger
the peace between the countries
when he arranged to ship 60 cases
of liquor to Bridgeburg for an Amer
ican buyer.
The Amedic slave case was the
basis for the verdict. In that case
an American slave runner, shipping
slaves to the United States, was
caught on the high 'seas by the
English courts ruled that because
both countries had laws against slave
importation, the man was guilty of
breaking international laws.
Guess was fined $500.
