Henry Clews, in his regular weekly review sayB: "We are now in
the beginning of the third month of the year, for which I have ven
tured to predict an improvement in business, a distinct relief from
the effects of last year's panic, and a return of confidence on the
stock exchange. To close watchers, that process has been in var
ious ways observable since the opening of the year; but not until
now has the change reached a point of development at which all rec
ognize it. In trade at large, the improvement has now become a
commonly admitted fact. In many branches the demand for goods
is plainly ahead of the supply. The reduction of stocks, caused by
the interruption of manufacturing and the extraordinary falling off
in imports, begins to show its effects upon prices; and that proves an
important stimulus to buying and to confidence. Under these con
ditions and in view of the near approach to the final determination
of the new tariff duties, business -has gained a much more'stable
basis of confidence, and the country may be regarded as being fairly
on the way towards a steady return to a normal condition."
Two years ago there was a great deal of talk about the movement
of business eastward in this city, and it will be remembered that
property on East O street sustained a pronounced boom. In the last
year, and more particularly in the last six months there has been a
reactionary movement. Merchants have been moving their stores
further west. A few instances may be cited. The Interior Decora
tive company moved from O street near Fourteenth to South
Eleventh street; the Merchants bank from Fifteenth and 0 to Thir
teenth and O; the Pacific Express company from Twelfth to
Eleventh; the Northwestern ticket office from O near Twelfth to
Tenth; Ferguson's music store from O near Thirteenth to South
Twelfth; Fipgenbaum from Fourteenth and O to Thirteenth and O;
Harris Bros., from Fifteenth and O to Eleventh and N; the '-Famous''
from Twelfth and O to 1031 O. Frank Zehrung's drug store is about
to move five doors east, to the southwest corner of Twelth and O,
and Sanderson, Schureman it Davis will move severa 1 doors east,
taking the store now occupied by Zehrung.
It is pointed out that putting the most limited possible construc
tion upon its language, the seigniorage bill provides for the addition,
as speedily as it can be printed and issued, of 855,150,681 in silver
certificates to our already inflated mass of paper money, which con
sists of 3340,000,000 old greenbacks, 8153,000.000 treasury notes, $207,
000,000 national bank notes and 8338,000,000 silver certificates. The
whole of this money, together with 855,000,000 in coined silver dol
lars, making in all $1,099,000,000, has to be kept at par with gold by
a slock of the metal in the treasury of only 8100,000,000, and if but
855,150,081 is silver certificates, the least amount which the seignior
age bill proposes, is added to the mass, it will exceed $1,150,000,000.
Liberally interpreted, the bill allows ultimately the issuo of $55,000,
000 more of silver certificates, which would bring tho total of what
is substantially all paper money to over $1,200,000.00$.
A leading financier and land owner in Omaha advances tho theory
that this year will usher in a new era of emigration to Nebraska,
and complains of the fact that so little is dono to encourage prospec

tendency to remove from the country to the city, many farmers
renting or selling their land in order to engago in trade or seek em
ployment in the towns. This, of course, increased competition in
trade and much trouble was experienced in securing labor to harvest
