submission of tho question of adopting the commis

forefront showing how unwarranted this proposed
hold-up would bo, how Omaha would be paying moro
for milk than any other nearby city. The milk deal
ers and dairymen saw the handwriting on the wall,
and ono by one withdrew from tho price agreement
and the raise never took place. Tho Hee'n fight saved
Omaha milk consumers a great deal of money.
Omahn Is assured of a new

in tllH enterprise, and more
a positive factor in tim enterprise, an
than that, is, wo believe, to be credited with focusing
public opinion on Omaha 8 need of n hotel, without
which the city would doubtless have had to wait much
longer for the responso to inaternllzo. At every staga
