Hay to Be Cheaper
This Year Than Last
"I don't look for the price of hay to be
as high this year as It was lost winter."
said W, K, Conlln of the hay country In
the vicinity of O'Nell. In Holt .county,
when In Omaha, at tho Merchant. "We
raised lots of hay a sain thU year, and.
In fact, much more than last winter, I
believe this was the case In most of
the best hay sections of the state. Not
only this, but I don't believe the demand
for hay will bo as great during- the com
ln winter as It was last winter. There
will be fewer cattle fed and fewer stock
cattle wintered. The price of feeders Is
so hlih that 1 believe fewer will be fed
and the aToater part of the market for
hay will come from the cities."

Public to Vote on
Near and Far Side
Street Oar Stops
Whether street cars shall stop on the
near aldo or far side of street Intersec
tions probabty will be put to a vote of
the patrons of the car company,
The municipal affairs e6mmtttee of the
Commercial club, after hearing from the
manager of the car company at the reg
ular mooting yesterday still maintains Its
stand for having cars stop on the near
side and that recommendation will be re
ferred to the executive committee of the
club at Its meeting Tuesday.
As members of the executive commit
tee of tho club already havo announced
their favor of the municipal affairs com
mittee decision, it probably will recom
mend that the matter be put to a vote of
the ear patrons and their choice will be
acted upon by the city council through
tho passage of an ordinance which shall
make the wish of the car patrons a fact.
President Wattles Informed the com
mittee that the street car company
would make any change that the patrons
desired. He announced that moro cars
will soon bo put into service and the
people muy decide on which side of the
