The fakir , Ilko the poor , Is alwaya with
us , but nl some tlmw ho Is more numerous
than nt other times. Ho la the forerunner
and the companion of fairs , expositions atxl
special happenings. A great many perrons
who never have and never will make an
hoiicflt living have as keen a sense of the
pleasure of attending these great occasions
as other people , but not having the money ,
they cast about for some scheme by the aid
of which they can fleece the nubile out of
their expenses whilst attending ihe e ex pail-
tlocs llcRgliig will not do , for they would
ho arrested ; highway robbery Is open lo the
eamc objection , but n living they must have.
The list of fake advertising schemes Is stud
ied and a scheme chosen , not on account
of its merllo. but because the parties think
they can work It , and clear up the most
boodle
LjiU star , through the efforts of the ad
vertising men , the newspapers and the mer
chants of Omaha , that king of all fake
fichcnics , the State Kalr Bulletin , got Its
quietus , arid ratny other equally nefarious
enterprises of this Ultvl were laid low and
abandoned for lack of support. lut ! this
> ear the ovcs of every fakir In the country
are turned on Omaha ns the harvest field.
Within a week the writer has received two
propositions to help push a fake which Its
protnotets declare Is a dead "cinch , " stating
that It will jleld a profit of $5,000 between
the 15th of March cad the 15th of April next.
These gentlemen from the wst cor.ldcntly
expect to have the merchants of Omaha
contribute- them for the privilege of plac
ing their advcrt'slng In a special directory
for the coming exposition , Just think of the
margin thc.ro must bo In this great fake ,
which would vlcld at the rate of 560,000 cold
cash lor Ita promoteis In cue. year. This is
better then Klondike gold inlying stock at
1 cent n share.
Parties are now at work In Omilm upon a
similar dlicctory of rooms and boaitllng
houses They offer to direct exposition visi
tors to thevw roons and lodging houses for
10 per cent of the gross revenue' from the
parties lucatcJ. Then the proprietor la to
take and pay for an advertisement In the
directory ; the amount charged for the space
varied according to the number ot looms
the advuitlser has for rent. For Instance ,
Mrs A. , with ten rooms , pays $23 for a half
page In the directory , whl'dt Mra. I ) . , with
live rooms , only paja ? 12 50 for the same
space In the director ) . The pajme tb for
thcso advertisements nro made f > o much
dovi and the balance when the dliectory
1 < dellveied. The real advantages of this
scheme to the schemer will appear when It
i.i remembered that most hotels are renteil
on the basis of 10 per cent of the grOv
lecslptb The bchemci .11 this ease not onlj
pets an evtortlonnto price for his space In
'ho proposed directory , but aclually collects
rent on the hotel or lodging house Into the
bargain. Ii i other woids the propiletor not
culy pa > s for his advertising , but pajs the
fakir a O3cond rent on his premises , for the
lulvllcge. A want ad In any ot the dally
pajcis would bring a tliousrndfoM greater
retuiijg at one-tenth the COM
Tnls is Just one ot a store of schemes
which an- being epm.g on private citizens
end merchants by fnltlu from outside ot
Omaha Thej offer no return for mosey paid
them Thej ciever have-anJ never will con-
tilbute a cunt to the support of our city or
Its cltbfiK' Good morpy l& being lost in
these worse than u&elecs schemes. The time
ji J patience of our nicichants are bein ?
ttcia out. and real opportunities for proflta
ble adveitlsing being lost ThU mattei of
advertising is a reco uU < Hl pait of modem
biiilncsii methods , and should r ° cclve care
ful consideration from every business men
\ merchant can 'o more afford to place his
announcement in a fake sheet directory or
riogram than he can afford to house his
buolnc. .s in a hen eoop cud then expect up-
to-date d'iscicet bujers to pationlze him
A medium to be of value miiit reach jour
clusj ot customers. It must reach a Mill !
eletjt number ot them nnd must have sulll-
clent prestige and the confidence of the
< i ople necettary to Influence them to heed
jour announcement. This no transient fake
scheme ean have. A score ° f busjue meii
und merchants have thanKed me for mj
former communlcatlccis In these columns on
the fake advertising schemer , and have
stated that not a dollar of their mcmey will
assist the fakir In the future. It Is doubtful
whether any newspaper would get less ad-
vcrtlsror If the woodh were ten times , fuller
of fal.e schemers than they are now. Thej
are not the ones who suffer It Is the mer-
ihant who pationUes the fake who paja the
fiddler mid dances to the tune which the
fakir plajs. It Is n sort of nlckle-ici-the-slot
game , In which the man with the nickel Is
never allowed to win.

During the last week a consldeiablc num
ber of country merchants from the territory
Including Iowa , north Missouri , South Da
kota , northern Kansas , Nebraska , Coloiado ,
Utah and Wyoming have been In the city
bujlng their spiing stocks of goods. Job-
bert , particularly those dealing In diy goods ,
have been busy In looking after these cus
tomers.
The merchants have been attracted by
special excursion rates of one and one-third
faro for the round trip from all points In
the tenltory mentioned which comes within
the Jurisdiction of the Western Passenger
association. There tickets were placed on
s lo from February 10 to 25 and are good
returning between February 2T and March
5 , both Inclusive. The excursion tales were
secured by the Merchants' 'butcau ' of the
Commercial club.
While a considerable number ot country
merchants were here , a greater numbci are
expected at the second meeting next month
between March 26 and April 1 , The same
i educed rates will then be In effect. The
dates named will bo pUccd between the
dates named , and will bo goo.l returning be
tween March 30 and April 9 A greatei
cioud l expected then because the present
tlmo Is considered a little top early for the
country merchant i to stock iip.

Wellington regarding the date , but has re
ceived an answer that It has not vet been
fUcd by the civil service commission. Ac-
cot ding to the recent Instructions sent out ,
however , the examinations will bo held some
tlmo between March 15 and April 25.
A considerable number of applications of
poisons who deslio to take the examinations
have been filed with Secretary Coflln. Not
very many more can be filed , slnco they
must all bo handed to the secretary by
next Tuesday , All applications that are
presented for filing after that day will be

The water mains on the exposition grounds
are now ccrnected with the mains of the
Omaha Water company and the buildings on
the grounds are protected against danger
from fire. The connection was made and
water turned CM shortly before midnight Fri
day night. A delay of over twenty-four hours
WOB caused by the conditions which were
found to exist when work was started , The
frost had penetrated the ground to n connld-
crablc depth , causing great difficulty In ex
cavating the trench , nnd It was found that
there was no val\c In the exposition mains
near where the connection was to be made ,
eo that It wns necessary to allow the water
to run Into the excavation and then pump
It out before the work could proceed. These
dimcultica wcro surmounted , however , and
the water was turned cii.
The next step will be to make connections
with the bluff tract. Tills portion of the
grounds linn been supplied through an Inch
pipe with water for construction purposes ,
but a complete sjstcm of large mains was
laid Borne time ago the full length of tVs
tract and connection will be made with this
sjstem at Sixteenth and Plnckney streets.
\Vork was started on this connection as soon
aa the water was turned Into the main
court , and there will be no cessation until
the connection Is completed. It Is expected
that this work will bo finished some time
Monday. The other connections w 111 be made
as fast as possible and by the end of the
coming week It Is thought the entire expo

President Wood to a Bee representative.
'At that celebration there were 17,000 flre
men In line In the parade , ami It is evident
: rom that that it Is no small affair. I bc-
IIovo If a tournament is held In Omaha and
T fair amount Is offered In prlcs that fully

The announcement in The Bee that Con
gressman Mwcer had succeeded In Inducing
Commissioner of Indian Affalni Jones to ad
vance the date of opening -the Indian supply
depot In this city from June 1 to May 1 If
existing conditions do not change was reud
with considerable satisfaction by the racm-
bets of the Commercial club. That bodj
has been especially vigorous in backing up
Congressman Metcer in the matter.
The club members , however , do not see
that thcie Is anything left for them to do
that has not already been done. The club
Is icady to furnish a suitable building an
eoon as the government Is ready to accept It
This building has been formally tendered
rent fieo by 'he city authorities. Nothing
remains to bo done except for the govecn-
ment to accept the offer , examine the build
ing to see If It Is suitable and occupy It.
Secretary Utt of the club says thai neither
ho nor the club could do anything In the
matter of selecting the' ' building. They
might rent one which the government offi
cials would not deem suitable for the pur
poses for which It Is to be used. Secretary
Utt has a half dozen bulld'nga on the string
and Is only waiting for the government to
examine them and oelect the most suitable
one In case Commissioner Jones himself
comes to the city to make the selection , as
is intimated In the dispatch. It is proposed
to send a committee to Chicago to meet him
aad escort htm to Omaha.
The club has made efforts to have bids for
Indian supplies opened In this city even before -
fore the opening of the depot , but Is not very
sanguine of success In this direction. It Is
not considered that the department on Indian
affairs would care to purchase goods In this
city before a place was obtained tor storln. ?
them. However , Secretaiy Utt hue written
to Congressman Mercer regarding thb and a
day or so ago received en answer to the
effect that the congressman would make an
effort to have bJs ! opened hero for the pur-
chahe of equipment and honacs for the Sioux
Indians.

United States District Attorney Sawyer
an3 Assistant Hush are determined to take
active steps In the prosecution of the suit
of the United States against the South
Omaha Live Stock exchange Just as soon
as the special term of the federal court
convenes I'l this city the middle of next
month.
A&a'stant ' Attorney Rush said yester
day that nn application would be made
verbally to Judge MUnger to Isaue the tern-
poiary Injunction against the further opera
tion of the exchange * on the grounds that It
exists in violation t > f the Shei man anti-trust
law. The evidence that wan given In be
half of the government before Kxamlncr-
In-Clmncery Hatltn Is deemed sufficient
basis for the application. This evidence Is
now transcribed ,
The live fitcck exchange did not have an
Innings before the master-ln-chancery and
Its attorneys will not say If they will ask
for such n hearing ; In fact the counsel
\\lll give no Intimation of the course they

The examination of the Elkhcrn Valley
house by the special jail committee of city
officials discloses the fact that It will coat
upwards of fIJOO to put the building In ehape
for occupancy. A number of the partitions
would have to bo moved , and the plumbing
would require a thorough overhauling. There
Is also e-nslderablo objection to the loca
tion on account of Its proximity to the Dodge
school. City Engineer Hosowatcr has re
ceived another proposal , the nature of which
he will not disclose until the committee hag
another meeting.
A permit has been Issued to the Krug

An entirely different eyntom of distrib

Inaugurated today. Formerly cny one
wanting mall on Sunday merely gave Ms
number In and this was called out , making
A great confusion as well as letting malt out
In A very haphazard way. From now on
persons desiring their mall will call at the
superintendent's office any tlmo after 11
o'clock Sunday morning and an order will bo
given them for their mall. These orders
will bo numbered and the holders of them
will bo waited on In order of their number
when the office opens at noon. When the
superintendent l&sucs an order he will take
the name and address of the person to whom
the order Is Issued and this slip Is taken to
the distributing room , where the person's
mall lo collected and labeled with his mini-
bercd slip. When the office opens all the
mall packages that have been ordered will
bo so arranged that they can bo handed
without delay when the order Is presented.
The pcatal authorities fllo all orders for
mall , so they have something to show for
mall that they let out. By this system ho
postmaster hopes to distribute the Sunday
mall In much loss time than formerly , as
well as with less confusion and risk.
