linn , nnd although there Is ns yet very little
now export business to report , It Is probably
true that foreign holders nro oven moro te
nacious believers In better prices thnn hold
ers on ( his sldo They know their supplies
are small and they nro unyielding In their
demands Consumers hnvo not taken alarm
so far und bopo to ultimately tire Ut the
owners nnd producers and force nn era ot

an ineroaso nf about 1,500,000 bushels ,
but calculations tuny bo nil upset by a

figures News from the northwest seems to
bo shnplng towards n change The receipts
at Minneapolis nnd Duluth hold up well and
the total receipts nt all points cast and west

placed upon the Informntlon that sifts
throuch sources usually considered very

dence fioni tliu Uakotus tends to show thnt
fnrmors' supplies nro down close to the point

got wheat well out ot first hands

35,000 bushels of contract corn In
store olTcied to sell nt 5Uc , but
could find no buyers until it
had been offered down to 50c. Ono or two
5,000 bushel lots were sold at the latter Ilg
uro and then the buyer : , of carloads began
gathering up the cash offerings and selling
them in the speculative market , nnd kept
doing so until the price had deolinod to 32o.
In the meantime , before the dcclino rofcrrod

summated , December shorts hud started to
cover their contracts , but seeing the danger
they ran , with so small a quantity of No 2
corn held in store , and from 31y@31JXo
early the price advanced to 3JKc- Then , as
November weakened It sold down to 31Jic ,

prices ot the lowest grades
Oats did not depart far from the narrow
tango of the previous two days , with only
moderate interest displayed in the regular
market Early the tone wusof mild strength ,
with May touching 23J c , but there was a
subsequent lack of support nnd fair speeuUi-
tivo offerings caused u down turn of X@Hc ,
with trade confined to Mav and December
November attracted no interest , the month
closing nominal at about 20c , with that paid
for car lots otNo 2 to go to Btoro
The provision trade scarcely commanded
ordinary attention In the cash movement
there was considerable restriction as com
pared with the former days of the week ,
while In a speculative way a slow fooling
held control Outside future orders were
limited nnd on local account trading had no
special significance In the product today the
monotonous condition was relieved near the
close by quick sales of November short ribs
An early sale of the desired article was mndo 1

forced to bid the price up to f0.00 , which

There nro but few of the iicoplo who have

nny Idea of the iuimcnsoalmost insurmount
nblo dlnicultlos that were mot by the men
who wcru nctlvo In brlnclng"about tills desir
able eomlitioii of nfTnirs Thcro Is no city on
the contlnout In which moro radical changes
of grndo hnvo been mndo thnn in Omaha
Nowcomcrs 111 Omaha will find It dlnlcult to
ballovo that six years ago Jones street was
the centre of a big stagnant pond of * wnter
nil the year round , nnd that Slxtcentlf street
north of Dodge was without curb lines or
sidewalks ; was filled with trees , nnd was
Impassable the greater part of the year , Yet
such Is the case , nnd the history o f Iho tnd-
leal changes that have been made In the city
is nn interesting ono It Bhowsmoro thnn
anything else the ofToit of good streets
upon thu value of real estate ,
'iho Hist attempt nt 11 radical change in
gr.ido of an Omaha street was mndo by Sir
A. Hanscom In 1871 , und ho inndo himself
the most cordially hated mini in Oinulia
when honttoinpted to make u big cut 111 the
grade of St Mary's avenue past the convent
property Ho was fairly smothered with
injunction suits and was finally compelled to
nccept a compromlso grndo that has never
been changed much since und St Mary's
uvcnlio is the quietest , dullest thorouchfarc
Within thrco miles of the poitolllco today
The work of establishing radical grndos
throughout the city was fairly commenced
In lS l , when Mr Audrew Kosowater was
city engineer Jones street was then the
bed of a crook and was filled over twenty
foot at the point where the Humor hotel
now stands All of the wholesale houses
now 011 that street uro un ground that * was
then purchased at $20 a front foot It is
now worth at least $500 u front
foot Heavy changes were made at
that time in the grades of Thirteenth , Four
teenth and Fifteenthstrcots south fioni t'nr-
num to Jones At the same linio the final
heavy cut was mndo nn Furnnm street
Previous to lSfd there had been n cut of ton
foot from the origiual surface of the ground
Another ton-foot cut wns mndo in 1878 , and
this crndo was maintained until 1883 , when
Mr Kosowater recommended and the coun
cil adopted a further cut or tncnty-livo feet
nt the corner of Seventeenth street The
order sot the peoplu wild , from Twentieth
to Twenty-fourth street on b'arnnm , to meet
this grade a fill of over twenty feet was re
quired To mark this the city engineer had
to use telegraph poles Peoplocnmo out in
swarms , especially on Sunday , to giuo at
these poles und romarlt what an outrageously
mean thing it was for Engineer Hosewater
to do Ho was abused in nil manner * of
ways , and had a hard light to keep the
council from going buck on their
uctlon In supporting him E.
L. Emory owned nbout S100 worth
of property on Farnnm near Twenty-second.
Ho fought the change and tried to stop the
work by injunction proceedings Ho was
overruled nnd was made rich in spite uf him
self , the property being today worth at least
$ JO,000. Some of thu loading men in the city
opposed the change Dr Millerof the Herald
voiced the sentiment of a very respectable
following in protesting ngnmst cuttingdown
the high grounds , which , ho maintained ,
should bo kept exclusively for residence
streets Ho argued thut business would never
extend west , but would cover the low
c/rounds / east of the bluffs Dr Miller also
opposed thu filling up of the creeks that
crossed Omaha in various sections at that
tlmo Ho has lived , however , to see the
error of his ways The cut on Furnanl was
made , however , and the benefits that have
been derived are manlfsst on every hand
Tno grade ot the street where The
15rh building now stands is now
fuily fortv-flvo feet lower than
the original Burfaco of the street at that
point , whllo the other oxtrcmo Is reached bo ]
tween Twentieth and and Twenty-fourth
streets on Farnnm , where asewor which was
laid In 1878 Is now nearly forty-eight feet boI I
low the surfneo of the strcot
In 1873 the grade of Dodge street , west of • '
Twoatleth , was established aud a fill of
twelve feet made at the southwest corner of
the high school grounds Later , when the
proposition to make n radical change of the
grade , making n cut of liftcon foot at Nine
teenth street , came up beforn the counciltlio
property owners from ono end of the street
to the other protested against the proposed
change as nn extraordinary imposition , but
the council stood by the engineer , and the
property owners nro now onlv sorry that the
grndo was not even moro radical !
The heaviest cut ever made in a street
grndo in Omnhawas four yoara ago , when
Eleventh street , nt its Intersection with
l'lorce , was cut down sixty feet , and a fill ot
fortv-flvo foot made further south It was
• the making of the property , however
The property occupied by the B. & M.
freight depot has been reclaimed from n
swamp and was filled from ton to llfteon feet
Seventh and Eighth streets were cut down
nbout twenty-Ore foot and nro making two
of the host business streets in the southern
part of the city , streets that until two years
ngo were impassable
It was a hard light that made Thirteenth
street a decent thoroughfare There were a
number of 30 foot cuts thnt were made by
• degrees nnd were not secured until after 11 vo
years work In the council
Elghtcouth street is ono of the nrottlcst
thoroughfares In the city , but no longer than
four years ago thcro was a big fight before
the city could Induce the property owners to
nllow n big ridge along Clark street to bo
cut and a branch of the old creek south of
( Jharles street filled They fought it bard
then but none of thom will now admit that
they were opposed to the change
Some of the now comers 011 Cuming street
will bo surprised to know thnt in 1674 a strip
of ground u mlle long nnd (5(1 ( ( feet wldo on
Cuming street from Twenty-fifth to the city
limits on the west was condemned for 11
county ! road nnd wns sold for thQ magnificent
sum ot * 2MX > . The road wns In foar/ul
shape , nnd had to bo graded nt nn enormous
cost 1 Property along the street wm then
worth nbout * - ' X > nn acre It is worth nt least
$5,000 I nn aero now ,
Onoof the most bitter fights resulting from
the 1 oponlng of the street was that made
ngalnst 1 Hon W. J , Cotinoll , when ho made
his light throe years ago for the grading ot
Lonvcnworth j stroct from Sixteenth west to
the city limits The strcot wns cut In mun.v
places twenty foct and more , and the re
inonstrnnccs in many Instances came in the
form j of porsonnl obuso of Mr Connell The
council ' stood by him , however , nnd against
the wishes of many or the wealthiest prop
erty , owners , gave thom one of the bcit
streets 1i 1 of the city In every respect Datango
suits i were stnrlod by the doou , but the
benefits ] derived from the radical change of
grade j were so great nnd so soon shown that
none of the cases over c.uno to trial Mr O.
W. Hamilton , or the United States bank ,
who was among the most bitter opponents
of ' the radical change , said recently : "If wo
dent ' look out that blanked Connell
Will make us all ilch m spite ot ourselves "
Hut the gicntcsttlmo wo had , " said Mr ,
Andrew Ko.iovvator , from whom the nbovo
facts were secured , was when wo rescued
Sixteenth street rrom a muddy country lauu
and mndo a stroct ot It That wns only six
years ngo , in I3S3. At that tlmo T. C. lim
ner ran a little grocery store nt the corner of
Sixteenth and Capitol avenue nud ho bus
probably soon moro toatris mired down thnn
nny ' mun nhvo The strcot wns a regular
mudholc There wasn't a curb north of
Capital uvenue T ho sidewalks were uuoven
nnd none ot them moro than six feet wide
Shndo trcos filled the street nnd fences in
front of the houses frcqontly took up 11 third
of ' the ftroni All attempts to get the
street In shnpo were violently opposed
Property owners claimed wo could not col
lect sldownlk tnx or unv levy for street Im
provements Finally Jim Urolghton , who
wns chairman of the board ot publiu wonts ,
decided to adopt hereto measures , Wo wont
In there with men nnd , before they could
stop us by injunctions , hud the shada trees
( ' .ut down , curbing laid nnd were putting
'
down ' sidewalks 'Wocouvlneedklckors thnt
the city had a right to curry on Improve
ments nnd they themselves were too well
plensed with the results to carry on their
lights It has been the same ever since
Uudicnl grades hnvo been opposed wherever
made , but the bonollts have ulways boon so
great 1 that all opposition has been silenced "
