You can talk about "knowing Omalla"
till you get dark around the gills, but
here is some Information about one of
our Industries that keeps working night
and day, eyery. day In the week, every
week In the mouth, every month In tho
year. No calamity that ever visited
Omaha has once Interferred with the
regularity of the greatest day of all
pay day. There may have been times
when the "ghost" was detained, but the
pay day never.
In the new year editions of the dally
papers they told of the wonderful suc
cess of Omaha during 1912; of the new
industries that, came. Into our city; of
the big buildings erected; of the oceans
of money passing through the banks, etc.,
but they did not say anything about the
newspaper Industry.
Kor Instance, when peklng of the
Omaha Bee no one considers It an In
dustry. It Is a 1 cejit store. Its "duty"
la to hurrah about other people's Indus
trie". There may be other Industries In
Omaha that can make a better showjng
than the "Bee' industry-b,ut you will
have to show me. Now listen.
The total number of employes on The
llee payroll, exclusive of carriers and
correspondents, is 206.
Here Is the part of The Bee payroll
few Industries of Omaha, IT any. can
touch; Number of employes receiving" J4
per day or better, 99.
Fifty-one of The Bee people own their
own homes, I think that is a good show
ing for the newspaper Industry, when yoq
consider that twenty-five years ago not
to exceed six of tho fifty-one meptlond
owned their homus. For fear some might
ronslder this statement hot air, here Is a
list of Bee people who own their homes:
