K CDDAUY IS BRANCHING OUT Ficking Majtats Eecnret CsU:ol of Ke-tras'it-loa Creamery Company. ONE OF LARGEST CONCERNS OF ITS KIND Indications That It Is the Intention t to Compete with Armonr and Swift In Tula Field Alan, The report, which haa been current among business men during the past few days to the effect that the Cudahy Pack ing company baa acquired ownership of the Kcbraxka-Iowa Creamery company, seema to be true. Joseph Blum has bfn placed In control of the buslners, with an asslstsnt, aa manager for the Cudahy peo ple. Since the assumption of the manage ment by Mr. Blum, a few days ago. R. A. Stewart, who under the old management was treaaurer, haa taken but little Interest in the affair of the concern, although his name at 1 11 stands on the stationery In thd aame capacity. Aa Edward A. Cudahy was absent from the city last night, and none of hla employes teemed to be familiar with the transaction whereby he secured con trol of the business, none of the particu lars of the purchase could be learned. The Nebraska-Iowa Creamery company waa first organized by J. J. King at Weal Point, Neb. Several years ago the head quarters wero removed to this city, where they have been since. From a small be ginning the business has grown to large proportions. The output at the present time amounts to about $2,DiK per day aver age. Fifty people are employed, and up wards of twenty milk stations are In ope ration. Ten route wagons are run in this city. When the company moved into the quarters ' which it occupies at th present time, at 601 to Su7 South Tenth street, the officers were J. J. King, president; R. A. Btewart, treasurer, and F. N. Stevenson, secretary and manuger. Mr. BtevencOn disposed of his Interest in the concern on June 1, and was succeeded In his duties by C. It. Porter. Mr. King still retains his title aa president of tho company, but It la understood that his resignation will soon be handed in. The new building which the company oc cupies, and which was erected especially for It about one year ago. Is one of the finest of Its kind in the country. It was built especially for the purpose, under the upervlsion of Mr. Stevenson, who ot the time held the- position of secretary., It Is generally believed by those who are most familiar with the creamery and cold storage business that the acquisition o 'Mrs. Anderson.

"Deab Mrs. Pinkoa:: There are but few wives and mothers who have not at times endured agonies and such pain as only women know. I wish, uch women knew the value of L,ydia Im Pinkham's Vegetable Cum pound, It is a remarkable medicine, different in action from any I ever knew and thoroughly reliable. "I have - seen many cases where women doctored for years without per manent benefit, who were cured In less than three months after taking your Vegetable Compound, while others who were chronio and incurable camo out cured, happy, and in perfect health after a thorough treatment with this medicine. ' I have never used it myself without gaining great benefit. A few doses restores my strength and appe tite, and tones up the entire system.

TELLS OF THE PEKING SIEGE Dr. Frank (ismenell Delivers later-retina- l.crtare at Ktontae Memorial. Secretary Willis of the Toung Men's Christian association presented John F. Ooucher, president of the Women's Col lege of Ualtlmore, who, after a few re marks regarding the history of the man. Introduced Dr. Frank D. Gamewell at Kountte Memorial church Sunday after noon. Dr. Oamewell was acting as mis sionary In Peking at the time of the siege of the foreign legations In that city by the Boxers in 1900, and he delivered a very Interesting addresa upon the subject of the siege, relating many Incidents which trans pired during the fifty-six days that the little body of Christians waa surrounded by a howling mob whose only thought was to ut them to death. Dr. Oamewell said "That the storm did not come without warning. There had been indications of approaching trouble all dur ing the spring of 1900, and some mission aries came a distance of 400 miles to find shelter, during the outbreak, with their friends in Peking. A trip of this distance In China," said Dr. Oamewell, "la not to be as lightly considered as one of the same distance In America, for It haa to be made In a Chinese cart and not in a Pullman slejper." The speaker told of the letter which was received by Minister Conger from the Chinese foreign' office which instructed all foreigners to leave the country within twenty-four hours, and how no attention was paid to the communication. lie then entered Into an Interesting description of tho breaking of the storm and the flight of the Christians from their missions to the Knglish legation, of the nights and days spent In erecting fortifications about the legations for self-protection. The for tifications were almost entirely constructed under the fire of the enemy. The speaker said "That It waa the general supposition In this country that the Boxers possessed no better weapons than bows and' arrows, or flintlock muskets, but this supposition was wrong," and In proof of his assertion he exhibited a case of Mauser cartridges which he secured from one of the enemy during the siege. "This waa not all," lie stated. "There were 2,800 Krupp' shells fired Into and over the fortifications during the outbreak." Dr. Oamewell described the death of Baron von Kettler, and the fight which occurred at the time he was killed. He said "that all the Christians believed during the siege that the enemy would soon exhaust their supply of am munition, but after the arrival of relief a large number of cases of Mauser cart ridges were captured, although the firing had been almost Incessant during the fifty six days which the siege continued." He told of the feelings of hone wjilch filled the breasts of the besieged when re ports of relief came, and of how through the tension of imagination these reports were frequent. In one instance the English ambassador came down from a roof to re port that he had seen the headlight of the English ship Terrible, which had evi dently been taken from the ship by a re lief expedition to assist In finding the way at night, but It was several weeks after this report was circulated before the ex pedltlon did actually arrive. The speaker saia that , the sweetest sound which ever greeted human ears was when the String of the relief party was heard In the dis tance, and they knew that help was at hand. He painted a graphic picture of the entry of the soldiers Into the legation, and did not forget to mention that a man in the American uniform was the first to set foot Inside the enclosure.

MUCH OF THIEVERY CHARGED UP TO THEM Chief Annoanrrs That All of .This Class Mast Leave the City or Spend Their Time la the Jail. Within the last day or two the city has been filling up with vagrants and suspi cious characters. Fourteen arrests were made yesterday by the police, every one being charged as a suspicious character or a vagrant. The cause of this raid was the burglary at the grocery store of Philip Krause in Albright early Sunday morning. Until an Invoice Is taken Mr. Krause does not know Just how much he lost, but there was but little cash In the till when he closed up. Most of ths goods taken con sisted of tobacco, cigars and canned goods. The robbery Is considered a daring one, as there is supposed to be a policeman In Albright day and night. Chief Brlggs was considerably put out about the affair, and started In to round up every suspicious character he could find. He said that he would make every vagrant leave the city or else get a county Jail sentence. For a time the city Jail was empty, and the of ficers had nothing to do. Within the last few days the city seems to be full of petty thieves, whom the police say are working their way south and east. Ths small num ber of police officers on duty does not per mit of a thorough patrolling of the city, as most of the night police congregate in the business district. Chief Briggs is greatly In favor of a pa trol box system, and If this Is Installed by the city council he says that he Will aee to it that the patrolmen are compelled to remain on their beats during working hours and report to police headquarters at stated intervals. By this .system the chief says that a great deal of petty thiev ing In all parts of the city can be stopped. No Additional Parkins; Houses. A . prominent South Omaha packer said to a Bee reporter last night that there was no probability of any additional packing houses being opened here for some time, As for the report that an Independent com pany was going to start a small plant near Thirtieth and L streets, this packer said that there was absolutely no foundation for such a rumor. In the first place, there Is ho sanitary sewer at Thirtieth and Ii streets, and, furthermore, there Is no way In which connection with any sewer could be made. Another packer said: "It's all Idle talk. There Is nothing In' the rumor." Still another packer, who Is In a position to know, said that all talk of opening ths Hammond plant at this time was foolish ness, as nothing of the sort Is contem plated. The Hammond plant has been stripped of most of Its machinery, and will need Improvements costing thousands ot dollars before It can be placed In service, With the falling off In stock receipts at this time of the year the packing bouses are not making any special Improvements and are not branching out any. Connell Meeting; Tonight. The city council will meet tonight but there is nothing of Importance on the slip so far. The ordinance extending the fran chise of the Omaha Water company can not be reported on until It has been pub lished two weeks. As the ordinance has not been published the requisite length of tlmo ths judiciary committee will not make a report tonight. A few old bills may be allowed tonight on the overlap money. If these go through this evening the overlap will be paid and the city will be placed on a cash basis for ths fiscal year which ends August I, 190. - ' Looking, for a Decision. Those Interested In the vacating ordi nances are looking for a decision from Judge Dickinson today. A decision was ex pected on Saturday but the court failed to hand down one. Many of the business men In the city are In favor of vacating the streets asked for as they will never be opened to traffic and might aa well be used for railroad tracks as to stand, as they are, thirty feet above-the traveled roadway. It haa been stated that with a decision from the court the council will hold apeclal sessions and pass the vacating ordinance as soon aa ths law will permit It to do ao. t Dance Committees Karaed.
