THE OMAHA DAILY BEE : TIIfUHDAV , JSOVEMBEll J ) , 18lft. !
CHAIN TRADE FOR' OMAHA Milllng-in-Transit Bate the Obstacle in Its Way at Present , OTHER CONDITIONS ARE ALL FAVORABLE Incrcnue In Wlicnt Production < ilvcn nine to the. Ilellcf that the Hun- IIIUHII Could , ISnnllx lie UN- talillnhcd Here. "What Omaha needs most to make It a great grain market Is a mllllng-ln-translt rate , " remarked Harry Miller , one of the local grain men. "Tho mllllng-ln-translt late will permit grain passing through here to bo unloaded and'placed In the elevatora , and then shipped on to the seaboard at [ I ' the same rate a la given n consignment ncnt to Chicago , New York or New Orleans. Until we secure this we can't hope to build up a great market hero. "Tho mllllng-ln-trauslt rate Is given to Minneapolis and Kansas City and as a re- Hiilt both have been built up Into good markets. At these places wheat may be taken from the original cars In which It Is started and stored In the warehouses and elevators and It not sold It can be shipped on at the original rate , which Is pro rated according to the distance which It came and which It Is to go. "Tho elevator capacity of Omaha Is greater than many have supposed. The Woodman elevator , now owned by Halnes & , Mcrrlman , experienced grain men , holds 650,000 bushels ; the Fowler elevator , 1,000- 000 bushels ; the old Hlmebaugh elevator , 630,000 bushels ; the elevator across the river 1,000,000 bushels and the new Peavcy ele vator about the same. Thus It can be seen that the city has an elevator capacity sum- | clcnt to do an enormous grain business whenever the grain comes here to be ban- tiled. "Could the mllllng-ln-translt rate bo se cured buyew would come hero and they would maku this a market. With a market other elevators would bo constructed and in les than a year employment would bo furnished to hundreds of men. In addition to wheat thcro would also bo enormous quantities of corn handled and this could bo made one of the greatest corn markets of the country Instead of being no market , as It Is at the present time. FrelKlit Hiitcw Are Low. "The railroads have treated the state fair In the way of shipping grain and all of the howl about exorbitant rates Is bosh and without any foundation. Kansas today Is the only stale that has a better grain rate nnd for this reason the farmers have no cause for complaint over the way they have been treated by tbo Nebraska railroads. It Is not generally known , but last year when prices on grain were forced up , rates In Nebraska were put down , thu i allowing the farmers to reap the benefits. "Nebraska Is rapidly becoming one of the ercat grain producing states of the union and farmers are getting back to wheat , at the same time doing more In the way of mining a variety of crops. This fall the acreage of winter wheat In the state will bo fully one-third more than/ / last and next spring moro spring wheat will be sown tnan in years. "During the last ten years farmers have planted nearly all of tholr land In corn , but now they begin to feel the folly of raising only ono kind of grain , nnd as a result , with u favorable season , we will raise more wheat next year than nt any time since the early days of the state , when every farmer put all of hlu land Into wheat. "If Omaha can secure the rate sothat Tvhoat In transit can bo'unloadcd and stored Lore , natural conditions will do the rest to make this a market forwheat / for speculation will come where tho' Kralu Is 'to bo found. Buyers want to see the actual grain before they buy. Atthis time sll1 of the big firms have their buyers In the small towns. The stult they pur- cliaao la scut right through Omaha , when 1f wo had the rates of which I have spoken the grain would come hero and hero would be the place whore tbo sales would be made.

' Vi-lo. Although the city , council at Its last scs Bleu decided to permit the Board of Educa tlon to purchase $1S,000 Interaction bonds that the city bus on market , It IH possible that the city has on thn market , It Is possl bio that thn law may bo railed In to prevent the transaction. Certain city oinclnls have been Riven Information thut legal proceedings will bo commenced to prevent the sale , on the grounds that Iho hlghCHt bid bus not been accepted. The bonds are tbo remainder of a batch that were voted a yt-ur ago , but they were not Issued until last April , as they were not needed. They havu been held until recently In order to HUVO the interest , but a short tlmu ago they were placed on the market and bids were called for. Three bidders rc > ppondcd. Spltzcr & Co. oilcrcd u premium of $378 , White & Co. a premium of $360 and the Hoard of Kducatlon n premium of $300 , A spirited tight for the bonds resulted All three of the bidders want them , as they are long tlmo bonds , running for twent } years , and are payable out of the genera fund. They are much more desirable than the special Improvement bonds the city has continually on the market. The councl finally decided to let the Board of Education have the bonds on the lowest bid , because tbo educational body Is extremely dcslrou of Investing In long time bonds the funds in a sinking fund which contains $20,000 an PIMPLES 'illjrvlfo had plmplr * on liprfuce.bu. she bus been Uklna CASUAUHTS and they have all disappeared.

At a meeting a week ngo the council p.isse.l the necessary resolution and this resolution was returned at the last meeting by the mayor without his approval. In an accompanying message ho stated that while he much preferred to see the Board of Ed ucation get the bonds rather than anyone else , yet for the sake of a precedent he In sisted that the bonds should go to the high est bidder. Ho also pointed out that Omaha's standing as a bond seller might be Impaired If It established a habit of dis posing of bonds to other than the highest bidder If the latter Is responsible. Finally , In the case In question , the mayor pointed ' out that some consideration ought to be given Spltzor & Co. , the highest bidder , In view of the fact that that firm recently bought the entlro batch of $300,000 renewal bonds lately Issued. The veto wan not sustained and School Treasurer Edwards will purchase the bonds this week unless the court Interferes , as had been predicted. PAY FtII THIS POMCU COMMISSION. Action of I In- City Council ItalHm n Peculiar ilnrntlon. The action of the council Tuesday night In deciding to award to the members of the old fire and police board salary for the actuaT tlmo they served In eplto of the fact that the report of the city attorney , which the body asked for , was to the effect that they were not legally entitled to It , Is consid ered somewhat peculiar. According to thin action the old board will bo paid for the entlro time It was in offlcc that Is , until and Including a portion of September. The new board made a demand for the office In February immediately after It was appointed. The council approved the sal aries of the old board , however , until June , when It was decided to discontinue doing so because It was not known which wan the egal board. Every month the two boards ut In claims for salary and each lime they vero turned down. Finally , when the su- rcmo court decision put the new board In lower , the old board had on flic claims for salaries for June , July , August and Scptem- cr , and the new board had similar bills or the month from February to September , n order to settle the matter the council asked the opinion of the city attorney. Attorney Connell stated that the new > oard was entitled to the salaries from the Ime they made a demand for the office , but hat it would have to look to the old boarder or the salaries paid the latter until June. Ml unpaid salaries remaining In 'the hands t the city , however , should go to the now > oard members. In spite of this opinion , hough , the council has decided to glvo the old board these salaries. Mayor Moores has not yet determined what action to take regarding the matter and will not determlno until after some con sideration. Conlcn the State Lair. The fire and police board ordinance which was passed by the city council is Intended only to put into the laws of ho city a provision of the man- ler of appointment and length of service of the board in accordance with a recent decision of the supreme court. In asmuch as the members of the board have been appointed In the past by the governor under state laws , no such city law has been required , but now that the supreme court decides that the mayor and council have the power of appointment It Is. necessary. The ordinance Is much like the state law. There are to bo four commissioners , whoso terms will expire on the first Monday in April of 1899 , 1901 , 1902 and 1903 , respcct- vely. On the last Tuesday In March of each year the mayor must appoint the suc cessor of tbo member whoso term empires , which appointment shall bo approved and confirmed by the council. IjcnvcN the Midway lit DarkncM * . City Electrician Schurlg and Electrician ilustln of the exposition have decided to avoid all danger of flro from electric wiring on the exposition grounds by cutting out the circuits. In accordance with this deter mination power for incandescent lights In all the buildings on the grounds has been shut off. Arc lights will be run In the main buildings to enable the exhibitors to pack up their goods by night , but the buildings on the Midways will bo In darkness and the concessionaires who are left will have to work In the daytime. A few arc lights will also be left on the grounds outside the build- lugs. Conference FnllM to Materlnllce. The meeting of the Joint committee of representatives of the East Omaha Bridge and Terminal company , property owners and the city , which was slated to take place yes terday for the purpose of considering the ordinance tbat gives the right of way to the terminal company to build railroad tracks from Fourteenth and Webster streets to Eighth and Capitol avenue , did not occur because no one was on hand. No further meeting of the committee Is to bo called , but any objections to the ordinance will bo heard at the committee of the whole meet ing of the city council next Monday after- neon.

Another Injunction has been Issued by Judge Scott , or rather , a restraining order anticipating an Injunction. The Oriental Exhibition company ( Streets of Cairo ) Is again the petitioner nnd the question of haulIng - Ing stuff away Is raised In a new form. Complaint was made by this concern yes terday afternoon against the exposition and a. B. Wadley and C. E. Llewellyn , re spectively the superintendent of concessions and the chief of the guards , alleging that ho Oriental Exhibition company Is denied access to the grounds and prevented from muling , or having hauled , any of Its prop- crty away.

Meanwhile the Streets of Cairo people can ahead under this order and take their entlro outfit from the grounds. A continuance was granted In the con tempt case of Judge Scott against the dlrec- ors of the exposition until Friday on a mo tion of General Counsel , Montgomery In the Streets of AH Nations-Streets of Cairo con- : rovcrsy. The directors appeared and were arraigned , each pleading not guilty. Mr. Montgomery said before the matter went tea a trial he would llko to have an opportunity of examining the Information. The suit of Receiver Thomas against thoj Midland State bank to recover the unpaid 50 per cent of stock came up before Judge Scott ind was decided , the Judge holding that tha stockholders nro liable for the delinquent stock. An Important point raised was that the stock -was transferred while the bank was solvent. The Judge ruled that this did not relieve the subscribers from the obliga tion for the full amount of the stock sub scribed. Mutters In Criminal Court.

From the story she told she was married when only 14 years old to McKano In May , 1880. Flvo children came of thla union. Her husband , she said , deserted her three years ago.

General Hallowes , the acting governor of Jamaica , started on a tour of the eastern parishes on Monday , for the purpose of personally Investigating the causts of disaffection In the recently disturbed districts. But the tremendously heavy rains which have fallen since Sunday converted the rivers Into tor rents , obliterated roads , rendered travel dangerous and altogether Isolated the so- called Maroon territory. The general , however - over , refused to postpone bis Journey and continued to force hit way Into the Interior. In so doing , ho experienced n thrilling es cape , being swept away by the Bamboo river yesterday. Ills determination to get In touch with the disaffected people Is ex pected to produce excellent results , espe cially under the nbovo conditions. 1'nKHcil flic Milrlu ' 1'crcnn , KINGSTON , Jamaica , Nov. 2.

ROUSING REPUBLICAN RALLY ( Continued from First Page. ) pointed to the $53,000.000 of bank deposits In this city. We pointed to Governor Fur- ncH * magnificent report. We pointed to the tremendous pouring In of people Into Omaha , i Then they said all this prosperity was due I to the Almighty. Well , I nm glad the re publican party has had the Almighty In . partnership with it. Did you ever hear of | the Almighty being In partnership with the other fellows since thu days of Buchanan ? ( Laughter and applause. ) Then they turned to figures. They said Mcecrve had saved $700,000 , to tbo state , but wo sent a smart young fellow up there to Lincoln to find out Just what the saving was. He was one of the able young men of The Bee , and ho discovered that about all of thla "saving" came from Joe Hartley. Another Item was knocked out when It was shown that wo had sent $250.000 out west to feed the populists and keep them alive. ' They crowed about the penitentiary saving. Allen had said It had required only $4,000 to keep It going. Our young representative of The Bee Investigated this claim and we learned that It took $37,000. We drove them step by I step until they abandoned figures and took I to slander and abuse. John V. Cornell , the ' fusion candidate for auditor , got out n card 1 paying ho had saved $99,000 to the state. j Wo said to him you could not have saved i that much. He then got another card repre senting that ho had made a direct saving to the taxpayers of $12,898. Think of such a drop as that , will you ? W. F. Porter , their candidate for secretary of state , bad a card y out also , pretending that ho had saved in the collection of fees $20,000. The Bee re porter told him that ho could not have saved anything because the treasurer collects the fees. He then came out with a statement to the effect that ho did not collect any fees. ( Laughter and cheers. ) Fall Ilauk on Hryan. Leaving their figures , they had to fall back upon , poor Bryan. It was Allen who put Bryan Into this campaign. They tried to make It appear that the administration Is trying to keep Bryan out of politics by hold ing him down In Florida. The fact of the matter Is thut Mr. Bryan picked upon the time for going Into the army when ho thought ho would go with Fltzhugh Lee and win unbounded glory. He got around In front of the Second regiment. Judge Baker has shown you how Mr. Bryan claims that legislation Is experimental. Well , he has learned that war ia devilishly experimental. ( Loud laughter and , applause. ) Ho flanked -1 around to the front , and now when the shoo i pinches and there Is no glory they Bet up. a whine and howl 'llko a sick calf. He put on his uniform and now let him take the same medicine wo had to take. ( Cheers and applause. ) A day or so ago a gentleman who carries the brains of the populist party of this state under his hat said to another senator : " \Vo expect to carry Nebraska , but we can not < ] o It bv talking the silver question. Wo will have to rely upon republican defalca tions. " So they tackled poor Bartley. They Imported George Fred Williams out here from Massachusetts. ; too. to slander the pres ident and say that.lho name of Mr. McKln- ley would go down In history 0,9 that of a "murderer. " And -they have been slander- Ing.the republlcans.'rlght and left , stopping at nothing. They , Uave lied about Mr. Mc- Klnley. about Algerivnbqut Melklejobu. They remind mo of , the Atory of the man In Ar- . kansas. A traveler'asked ; him If lie was not afraid tho'malaria , would kill off some of his numerous children. "Oh. yes , mebbc , " ho replied , "but wb always have plenty ahead. " So it Is With their lips they al ways have plenty ahead. ( Roars of laughter. ) They have Industriously circulated about mo the story that "I nm the B. & M. attor ney. I wish I was In place of Senator Mon- dcreon. The fact ' ( s I have not donp 10 cents worth of work for a railroad company In ten years. We are coming to the close of the campaign , and I say , Look out for lies , for they breed them on every bush. If you ore a loyal American , stand by the administration. 1 don't pretend to know what ought to be done for Cuba and the Philippines , but I am willing to risk my part of the settlement of that question with Major McKlnlcy. ( Applause. ) In our district we expect to send Burkctt to congress by 2.000 majority. Up here you can do as well , or better , with Dave Mercer. ( Cries of "You bet wo will. " ) I say let us nil rise above party and vote for the support of Mr. McKlnley. Do as you did last sum mer , when you sent your boys to the. . war , and let us help our president to bring about a fair and honorable peace. The applause which followed was deafen ing and the rally broke up with wild cheers. CALAMITY 1IOWM2HS AT WOIUC. Allen and Holconili Point Out Dl - trcvn ItepuhllcaiiH Will Ciuine. The fuslonlets of the Fifth ward were en tertained last night by Senator Allen , Governor - ornor Holcomb and Matt Gerlng , with the ) senator leading off and consuming an hour of .the time. Ho &ald that the principal Issue In the campaign Is whether or not a republican shall succeed him in the United States senate during the next six years. After this he explained the method of electIng - Ing senators and then declared himself a candidate for the place. Senator Allen dwelt at great length upon what he has accomplished for Omaha In tbo way of legislation. Ho claimed tbo credit for tbo passage of the bill appro priating money for the exposition , the bill for the establishment of tbo Indian sup ply depot and several other minor measures. When he goes back , he said , ho propose * to urge tbo passage of a bill for the es- taWiehment and maintenance of an Indian school upon the Fort Omaha military res- ervatlon and another giving to tbo city the Government building upon the exposition grounds , the same to be used for a mu- scum or some other public purpose. Ho smissed the financial questions by de claring that the republicans are the advo cates of dear money. He predicted dire calamity by telling his audience that the republicans In the senate Intend to pass a bill retiring all of the paper money and create another Issue , redeemable In gold. Governor Holcomb ventured the opinion that ho was among people who bad been converted to bis way of political thinking , after which he arraigned the entlro repub lican party. He advocated the election of G. M. Hitchcock to congress , giving as a reason that Mr. Hitchcock owns a newts- paper and was born In Nebraska. The governor - ernor admitted that a wave of prosperity has swept over the country elnce tbo elec tion of President McKlnley , but attributed thla to tbo good crops of the post year and the war with Spain , which took out of the country a couple of hundred thou sand of the worklngmen , thus allowing those who remain at homo to secure positions at good waged , Ho said that now the causes which brought better times have passed away and In closing predicted dire calamity It the republicans carry theelate. . He de voted much tlmu to telling what his ad ministration baa accomplished In the way of putting In and retaining honest men In ofllcc. Matt Gerlng devoted the greater part of his speech to a discussion of the legislative and congressional tickets. .11 r. Smyth lantern Denial. OMAHA , Nov. 2.
