THE BEE: OMAHA. WEDNESDAY. APRIL 11, 1917.
WAR BREAKS OUT IN CODNCILGHAMBER Butler and Dahlman Fire a Few Verbal Shots, but Small Loss Reported. DAHLMAN WINS TEX DAY Desultory firing between Mayor Dahlman and City Commissioner Butler broke into a sharp engagement at the morning's council meeting when these officials exchanged a with ering fire of rhetorical bombs. The Board of Public Welfare was the casus belli. Butler led the op position to granting the board an ap propriation for a separate annual re port for 1916. "Unless you do it nothing can be done right," was the first projectile hurled by the mayor. "I think the Welfare board is a joke," was the retort discourteous. "The members of the board are equal in ability tto any branch of the city government and they are equal to the city commissioners. This board was created by the legislature and is efficient," rejoined the mayor with much heat. Votes as He Wants To. "Well, you can't scare or bulldoze anybody. I am going to vote as 1 see fit," retorted Butler. "It is you who are trying to bull doze," replied his honor. "You just play your own game and I'll play mine," was the next But lcrism. On the first vote the mayor had only Withnell with him, but after he made his strong appeal Parks and Kugel changed their votes, leaving Hummel and Jardine with Butler. The Welfare board will have its own annual report. After the meeting some discerning citizen remarked that evidently the mayor and Commissioner Butler do not love each other with any degree of fervor. Work On State Hospital Is Delayed by the Strike Work on the completion of the Nebraska State hospital on the campus of the University of Ne braska College of Medicine, is some what delayed on account of the paint ers' strike. Although officials of the painters' union announced a few days ago that most of the men are getting the demanded scale, a majority of the union painters are still out. Contractors say it is not so much the increased wage painters are asking as some of the other demands they are making which are holding up a settlement. The painters are asking that their business agents shall have access to the books of the master painters to check up and see what the master is paying the painters. Railroads May Refuse To Transport Beer Chicago, April 10. Among several decisions handed down today by the United States court of appeals was one finding that the receiver of the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific rail way was justified in refusing ship ments of beer for delivery to individ uals for their private use in the dry territory of Iowa. The decision re versed the lower court, which held that the receiver should accept the shipments. The suit to compel the receiver to carry business of this sort was prosecuted by a number of brew eries. All Wireless Stations Must Be Dismantled The order sent out by the govern ment, providing for the dismantling of public and private wireless sta tions, refers to those of the listening as well as to those of the sending and receiving kind. Here there was but one sending station, that on the Union Pacific building, and it was disman tled several weeks ago. In and around the city there are something like thirty listening and receiving stations, but they are all of the amateur kind. It is expected that they will come down at once and the apparatus be packed away.

Best Medicine for Constioation. Mrs. Charles Crim, Charleston, 111., states that Chamberlain's Tablets are the best medicine that she has ever used. There are hundreds of others who are of the same opinion. These tablets are easy to take and most agreeable in ettect Advertisement. The Busy Recruiting Officer M. 0, Peters Gives His Services and Use of Plant to US. M. C. Peters, president ot the mill company bearing his name, sent to the adjutant general at Washington a letter offering his personal services to the government in any capacity he could efficiently fill; also the output of the M. C. Peters Mill company s plant without profit. Mr. Peters is 53 years of age and the plant has a daily capacity of fifty carloads. "I believe that the older men who are successful in business should in spire the younger men by offering their services at this time. The young men can not de it all," said Mr. Peters. According to his physical and men tal abilities, he is willing to answer his country's call and will do what ever may be assigned to him. "I want to show my loyalty to my country and do not want any public ity or advertising advantage out oi this. I have offered the government to nut the dant at its disposal, to fur nish feed for animals or other ma terials quickly and as near to actual cost as it is possible to figure it," he added. Patriotic Organizations To Do War Relief Work Two patriotic women's organiza tions exnectine to do war relief work have affiliated with the National League for Woman Service. They are Garfield circle, Ladies of the Grand Army of the Republic, headed by Mrs. F. Carmony, and Daughters of Civil War Veterans, headed by Mrs. Robert Stoddard. In the first circle, which includes eighty women, are many older women who have seen three wars. The second is composed of daughters and granddaughters of civil war vet erans. Co-ordination of all the war relief circles in the city is one of the first aims of the League for Woman Service. Registration of women will con tinue at headquarters in the First National Bank building until Satur day, when a meeting to arrange for a big rally next week, probably at the Boyd theater, will be held. The chairman, Mrs. William Archibald Smith; Mrs. Clement Chase and Mrs. C. M. Wilhehn are arranging the details. Both men and women are awaiting the Red Cross chapter charter before engaging more deeply into this work. Gould Dietr will head the local chap ter and William G. Urt will be sec retary. The executive committee is made up and will be announced us soon as the charter is received. Cattle Sell for $13.05 and Hog Top Price is $16.20 A "wild" market pervaded the live stock exchange for the third time this year this morning. At 11 o'clock pre vious records in lioirs and cattle went flickering, the former establishing a new high mark of $16.20 and the lat ter a high mark of $13.05. Receipts in these two divisions were heavv, there being better than 10,000 head of hogs and 4,000 head of cattle in dock. The Interstate Com mission company sold the top cattle. The consignment was of twenty head and came from Mindcn, la., John Simon, farmer, being the shipper. The beeves averaged 1.499 pounds. The same commission firm sold one of the five loads of top hogs. There were sixty-four head in the consignment averaging 324 pounds. Byers Bros, were also in on high swine, selling a load from Ed Scow of Shelby, Neb., at $16.20. Local Contractors Kick On Athletic Club Bidding Local building contractors are somewhat peeved because the Ath letic club is to give them only a week to figure the plans for the $400, 000 Alhletic club buildir.g and offer a bid on it. The Athletic club plans are now out, ready for distribution to the con tractors, and the club has said the bids must be in by 2 o'clock the after noon of April 17. Local contractors say this announcement catches many of them with a half dozen jobs ahead of them which must be figured, and that the addition of this one which must be figured within a week is abso lutely unreasonable. Another Old Flag Found Right Here in Omaha Mrs. Adeline Miller, 2424 Bristol street, has a large eight-foot silk flag with thirty-five stars, which was first unfurled to the breeze at the funeral of Abraham Lincoln. Mrs. Miller also has a letter which was written by Mr. Lincoln in 1861 to her father, who was a delegate to the first republican convention and was also a delegate to the convention which nominated Lincoln. GRAIN PRICES GET QUITEABUMPING Cash Wheat is Off Four to Six Cents, While Option Regis ters 13 -Cent Decline. CORN AND OATS FALL, TOO High prices got something of a black eye on the Omaha Grain ex change when cash wheat sold off 4 to 6; corn, l; i to 4, and oats, 1 to i cents per bushel. Apparently there was no cause for the decline, other than the opinion that prices in the past had been too high. On the Omaha market wheat sold at $J.15(d;2.20; corn, $1.31 VigUS, and oals, b7(t68 cents per bushel. Re ceipts were: Yhent, 15; corn, 20, and oats, 16 carloads. The option market was weaker than the cash, wheat selling down 13 cents below the high of Monday, and corn close to 12 cents. However, there was a recovery of 5 to 7 cents before the end of the session and the market closed reasonably strong. So far as Omaha men were con cerned, it is asserted that few, if any, lost on the break. Most of them were sellers Monday and during the early hours of Tuesday's market continued selling, as both wheat and corn kept on going down. Grain men generally are of the opinion that while prices have been too high they are going still higher, but they are not inclined to the be lief that they will remain there. They assert that before the nett harvest, if the crop gives promise of being rea sonably good, there will be a heavy slump following the advance. Reduces Fine of Speeder Who Was On Way to Church On his way to church Easter morn- .'n,- tn dfet tint in ten var Cornelius M. Rice, 3924 Florence boulevard, was so anxious to be on time for services, that he put a little extra "gas" into his automobile. As Ml oj o,.t,,.b ...... .n ... j Officer Hiatt of the police motorcycle squad clocked mm ana louna inai ir. Rice was doing things to Nebraska speed laws. "Judge, I didn't realize that I was going so fast," pleaded Rice before Police Magistrate Madden. "I was on my way to church for the first time in ten years." The judge said that Rice's church going intentions were an extenuating circumstance in his case and fined him $2.50 and costs, just one-half the levy imposed upon two other speed ers. Parks Refuses to Remove Cans Boy Scouts Pick Up City Commissioner Parks, super intendent of the street cleaning de partment, declares he will not remove tin cans which the Boy Scout officials propose to have dragged to the Strand theater as a spectacular feature of the cleanup on April 20 and 21. "A statement that I would haul these cans away was entirely without authority. I will not move the cans, because I do not approve the idea. If the boys will place the cans in alleys and help load them into our wagons, they will do some practical service for the welfare of the city," said Mr. Parks. The proposition announced last week was to have Boy Scouts drag tin cans through the streets on strings and place them in large heaps at Eighteenth and Douglas streets. Rev. T. J. Mackay Reported Considerably Improved Rev. T. J. Mackay, rector of All Saints' church, who was taken ill dur ing the Easter morning service at his church, is considerably improved, al though his physicians say that he must remain in bed for some time and take a complete rest.

Farmers Planning to Utilize Every Acre Farmers and other citizens of Box Butte county, out in the northwestern part of Nebraska, are takin,. steps looking to solving the high cost of living during the next year. They are holding public meetings in all of the towns and are urgini, that as many Bell-ans Absolutely Removes Indigestion. One package proves it 25c at all druggists acres as possible be cropped this sea son.

This Simple Laxative A Household Necessity Dr. Caldwtll'i Sprup Peptin Should Have a Place in Every Home Constipation, or inaction of the bow els, a condition that nearly everyone experiences with more or less fre- 2uency, is the direct cause of much isease. When the bowels become clogged with refuse from the atom- ach, toul gases and poisons are gener ated, and unless the congestion is quickly relieved the system becomes weakened and most susceptible to at tack. Various remedies to relieve consti pation are prescribed, but many of these contain cathartic or purgative agents that are harsh and violent in their action and shock the system. The most effective remedy is the com bination of simple laxative herbs with pepsin that ii sold in drug stores un der the name of Dr. Caldwell'a Syrup Pepsin. The Hon. John D. Kelster of Bran dywine, W. Va., who hai represented his district in the State Legislature for six years, writes that he uses Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin and finds it a splendid laxative, easy to take and mild, yet positive, in its action, and that it should be in every household for use when needed. Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin is sold by druggists in alt parts of the United States and costs only fifty cents a bot tle. It contains no opiate or narcotic drug, does not gripe, and is recom- mended as a family laxative, mild enough for the tiniest babe, yet suf ficiently powerful to act easily on the strongest constitution. To avoid imitations and ineffective substitutes be sure to get Dr. Cald well's Syrup Pepsin. See that a fac simile of Dr. Caldwell's signature and his portrait appear on the yellow car ton in which the bottle ia packed. A trial bottle, free of charge, can be ob tained by writing to Dr. W. B. Cald well, 455 Washington St., Montlcello, Illinois. Dining Room Furniture News Perfectly! harmless! Pleasant o totatte & Acts like Magle r nTi iMEisi Ifbi-s-aSSr"!
