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.

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. Steamships Arrivals. Kobe. April J.

King Ak of the glorious realm of Ak Sar-lieu is out to corral his ulc jects in one of the biggest roundups of his reicn. lie will start gunning for members 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 bers. Lineup Decided on. The lineuD of zones and majors is as follows: Zone No. 1. major, W. B. Hosford; captains, L. B. Clough and Harry Weller; No. 2, major, J. E. Davidson: captains.

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 be the most popular of my reign," 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. Liquor of New York Shipbuilder Unable to Evade Arm of Law New York. April 9. Afloat or ashore, liquor owned by James She wan, Brooklyn shipbuilder, seems unable to evade the clutches of the law. Three tunes at Monterey, Cal.; Miami, Fla.. and in the port of New York Mr. Shewan's steam yacht Patricia, has been seized because it carried liquor. Upon each occasion Mr, Shewan convinced authorities that the liquor was' his personal prop erty and obtained its release. 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. With a population of 250.000 in habitants, Liberia is the most back ward of alt the nations in adopting the automobile. There are only eight cars in the country. on Use of U. S.

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, who for several years have been 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: Rustle of Spring. Binding, and recorded by Tina Lerne: Minuet in O'. Padereweki, recorded by Paderewskl and played by Karl 1..

A "rather pronounced" earthquake shock was registered on the seismograph at Georgetown university, the dis tance being estimated at 3,400 miles from Washington, probably to the south. Belief was expressed that the disturbance may have occurred in Mexico.

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 Nolan. 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 luring as "Petit Pierrot" in the open ing ballet Others who appeared in the program were Frances Cunningham, lima Bigelow, Margery Arnstein, Wary Vogel, Harriet Rosenfeld. Margery Hiller, Janle Lehn hoff, Louise Smith, "Margaret Donahue, Mary Alice Mlthen. Jean Brownlee.

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.

Announcement was made at the state attorney s of- iice that Henry J. bnnth, a juror in the trial of Simon O'Donnell, labor chief and his aides for extortion, had confessed he was paid $1,000 to hold out for the acquittal of the defend ants. This acquittal led to an immediate investigation. Smith named as the men who paid him the bribe, Michael Stack and Joseph Sweeney. They were arrested and indictments have been voted against them, charging conspiracy. ' ' This evidence, considered the most important so far obtained, will lead to apprehension of "men farther up," according to the attorneys for the state. - More than $1,000,000,000 will be expended to build new highways and repair old ones in the United States this year.

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 British. English courts ruled that because both countries had laws against slave importation, the man was guilty of breaking international laws. Guess was fined $500.

"Ihe inrreaing traffic in the Northern Pacific has made this question prcs for an early solution," Capt. F. B. Hasett. hydrographer of the navy and head of the hydro, graphic office, said. "Accordingly in September, lJl, the bydrograplf ic office wrote to a number of the best known mariners trading in the Pacific between Seattle and Van couver and the Japanese islands. It has received responses from most of these mariners giving their ac tual experience, w inch in some cases covers JO years of sea-going in those waters. "In all cases the mariners report that it is very desirable to establish such lanes due to the increasing traf fic and to the prevalanre of fog on the route which introduces grave danger of collision between opposite bound vessels. 'A summary of all reports receiv ed has indicated that the double steaming corridor proposed should lie well to the north of the Great Circle route from San Franrisco to Yokohama, orient-bound craft keep ing to tile northern lane and home bound ships to the southern path way. The arrangement was said to provide the best probable weather conditions as well as the aid of fa voring currents."

Everything was spread on tables of marble or stone to attract the eye. To one entering the new Bond's clothes shop, the 14th of a chain of similar stores throughout the coun try, the huge display of snappy styles in men's clothes strikes the eye. The lighting arrangement, up-to-date equipment, concealed dressing rooms, and welcome greeting all lend a spirit of wonder to the place. The tallest electric sign in the city attracts the populace to the clothes shop. The display .windows are modeled after new designs in the east. Charles A. Bond, head of the chain of Bond's clothes shops, was in the city the past week to open the store. Thefirst floor is devoted to suits; the second floor to dress suits and gabardines. J. F.
