MUCH BUILDING PLANNED FOR NEXT YEAR It All Prmt Propoaltlane Were Caurrteal Oat Foar Steee WotU Be Interarbsm, OoBaaeted y Metor Linea. According to the records of Incorporation network of interurban etectrlo lines will soon be branching out front Omaha or reaching toward tfila place from other points, and Omaha will become a center of eleotrlo communication. Some of the roads which have bean In corporated probably will never be built. Ifor the average investor looks with con- 'terable doubt on Interurban traction as f ; n experiment in tma state and In Iowa, which he would rather see other people work out to an assurance of success. But there is one road, the Omaha, Lincoln at Beatrice Electric railway, which has al ready secured a large part Of Ita right-of- way and quite probably will begin grrtlng this fall. Another Una. tha Bloux City, Homer Southern, has already consldera- Ha grading dona and tlea and rails laid for Short dlatancea. Tha other roads which are being financed have not yet reached thla stage. . - v . The first of these aoea not come to Omaha, but haa its terminal at South Omaha, from where it goea . to Papllllon past a summer resort lake, and then through Ashland to Lincoln by tha short est route. The headquarters of tha com (any are in Lincoln. "Tha managing engineer, C. M. Kurd, with offices In Lincoln, represents aoma par tlea of atrong responsibility In Akron, O.." said Dr. O. L. ItTlller in speaking of the road; "men of solid character and large mcana. A large portion of tha right-of-way has been secured by purchase, perhaps 70 or to per cent, and the rest la held In op tions, tha whole being practically obtained a far aa Lincoln. I do not know about the Una south of Lincoln. Tha company has had men busy for nearly two yeara in making surveys, getting right-of-way and ether preliminary work, and has spent so fur about $20,000. t understand tha Lincoln terminus has been secured and the strong Support ot tha people there, under very aatlafyliMj conditions to tha company.

"There la a atrong Intention to begin grading thla fall at the Lincoln end or at South Omaha, but I have no aaaurancaa that thla mill ba dona, and hava no war rant to apeak of the poslbllitlea, aa I hava been simply In touch with tha gentlemen bark of it for aoma . time, and hava re ceived ray Information front the engineer. I hava my own opinion aa to ' what tha people ahould do for tha investors, who have built similar llnea In tha east. Thay Should give them their confidence and so snan should queatton tha Intentions of men af their character to carry out their obliga tions to the consmuottlea through which this Una propoaea to paaa. especially when flier hava given a pledge in time, labor and eoualderable auma of money spent" f To Papllllon business men Mr. Hurd Stated aoma time ago that contracts sra already being let for grading and that the 1 ltniywlll ba In operation within one year. yna Weatlngboaae company la to furnish tha machinery and equipment and cob- iiuis iut ten nine nave airaaoy Deea k.L Steel rails were te be onierad at the ujrfmTf jvbl We colored. first of tha year when the price would be lower. Captain R. A. Talbot ot South Bloux City, who has charge of the construction work of the Sioux City, Homer at Southern and Is tha principal promoter, was in Omaha this week. He aald that the fine weather was being taken advantage of and that he was hiring all the grading teams he could for the 'work. The grade haa been completed for eight miles from Sioux City to Dakota City and twenty-five teams are now at work below that point. Four miles have been laid with ties and the rails are In position for one mile. The trafflo arrangement over the bridge which, under Its charter from the War depart ment, is open te all roads, was made some time ago, and the road will use the present rails, but build Its own approaches. This Interurban Una haa a right-of-way to the northern -boundary of the Winnebago reservation, which Is four miles south of Homer. It taps a pocket of very good territory without competition south of South Stoux City and Dakota City. There Is a low, level plateau of twenty-five miles without grades snd needing" only one small bridge, cut off on the eaat by the river and on the west by the steep bluffs, and having a considerable population. It is the ultimate Intention to build south to Tekamah, where the Minneapolis at Omaha Una returns to the river, but there Is no likelihood of this being done for some time. Mattera ef Local Interest. Tha circumstance which adds local Inter eat to this Una is tha preaent financing of tha Omaha, Decatur & ' Northern elec trie road, which, when planned, was to have covered the territory between Omaha and Bloux City, but which will now, If built. In all probability connect with the new Sioux City line at Homer. This paper road owes Its existence to tha long con tinued agitation of the Decatur people for some meana of communication with the outer world. Thla ia one of the oldest villa gas In the state, but has never known better uorvica than the stage coach. The Decatur people have put a considerable sum of money into tha erheme and tha survey has been made between their town snd Tekamah, but they are now tied up over aoma Bloux City capital. An agent haa been in Blair for months, but haa aentatlves, says that the line will be built, done Uttle in raising money there. H. H. Bowes of Bowes at Hodder, local repre- lt Is proposed to run south from Homer through the Winnebago and Omaha agen cies to Decatur, straight across to Teka mah, along the bottoms to Herman and along the bluffs to Blair, from where the course la rather Indefinitely laid through Irvlngton and Bennington to Benson, from where tracka are to lead Into Omaha and to South Omaha. The Council Bluffs. Tabor at Southern la another road which seems In a fair way to become steel and graded dirt, and which. If satisfactory trafflo arrangements can be made over the Douglas street bridge, will enter this city and probably become a con tlnuatlon of the Omaha-Bloux City lines Negotiations hava been entered Into with tha Omaha street railway and local repre aentatlves of tha proposed Una up th river, Tha Council Bluff, Tabor at Southern Is to run down through Qlenwood snd Tabor to BU Jueeph and eventually. It Is planned, to Kansas city. Cowglll at Craig of this city have made tha aurvey south to tha Missouri line and part of the right-of-way has been obtained. The propoaltion has been financed. It Is said, by men living In Cres toa, Tabor and elaewhere. ' Te Believe Next Yeajr. The Omaha at Council Bluffs Street Rail way company, according; to General Man ager Smith, wUl probably build to Bellevue during th eornlng year. Early in tha pres ent year It reincorporated ao that It ceuld bulla any road which eeeaaea profitable.

However, this satisfies ths company. Mr. Smith is not In favor of interurban lines In general, because he holda that the country Is not sufficiently settled to produce paying busi ness. The Bellevue Una, If built, wUl reach the town, the college and Fort Crook. No Una has been decided en, but It Is probable, according to Mr. Smith, that a southern course wUl be taken down tha valley from Albright The topography of Bellevue makes it somewhat of a problem to reach both the town and the government reserva tion, but If the Une Is built It must draw the trafflo from both sources. Another eleotrlo Une between South Omaha and Papllllon is on ths tapis, and Lyman Waterman has been actively en gaged In Its promotion. This line as pro posed will run from the stock yards through Sarpy Mills, past Jetter's brewery and on to Papllllon. According to Mr. Waterman he has a contract to carry the stock yards refuse, amounting to several cars a day, and another contract for In and out carrying for the brewery. It Is pro posed to make a summer resort at the Sarpy MlUs lake and put In amusement at tractions In addition to a half-mile track which, according to Mr. Waterman, Is being graded. The right-of-way has, it is aald, been secured, and grading will, begin in the spring. Report has It that next year Omaha win be connected with Des Moines by an inter, urban Jlne running through Dallas Center, Panora. Guthrie Center, Audubon and Har lan. This Is on the authority of President Harry Polk of .the Dea Moines Interurban company. Another line Is being built through' Winterset and Indlanola iron lea Molnea and other electric road are planned, making a total of $00 miles at an estimated cost of $T.l'W,UUU.

Mo., through the towns of north. western Missouri to St. Joseph. rom thence It will be extended to Council Bluffs and Omaha if it pays. The stock is said to be half secured, the right-of-way prac tically secured, and. It la whispered, tha scheme la backed by the Burlington to Injure competing roada In that territory.

BRILLIANT LEADERS AND ABLE PREACHERS Great Minds of the Chairch Who Shed Their Llsjrht from Omaha Pelplta Darin th Month of May. laoa. Th meeting ef the Methodist Missionary board, which Is to be held in Omaha, be ginning November 11 snd lasting about a week, will bring to this city many of tha foremost men of thla great and progresalva denomination and will undoubtedly attract large numbers of people from the surrbund Ing country. Among the more distinguished men who wUl attend are Bishops Merrill of Chicago, Andrews of New York, Fuss of Philadelphia, Walden of Cincinnati, MallaUeu of Auburndale, Mass., Fitzgerald of St. Louis, Joyce of Minneapolis, Good sell of Chattanooga, McCabe of Omaha, Cranston of Portland and Hamilton of San Francisco. Other prominent men ef the body will be Dr. A. B. Leonard snd Dr. H. K. Carroll of New York. Dr. Homer Eaton of New York, Dr. H. C. Jennlng of Cincinnati, Dr. Robert Forbes of Duluth, Dr. J. B. Trimble of Sioux City, snd In all probability Dr. J. M. Buckley of New York. The very mention of some of these names brings forcibly to mind tha great gather ing of Methodists held In thla city In U92, tha general conference of that year. In many respects that was the greatest re ligious convention ever held in Omaha The conference lasted during the entire month of May and the average attendance waa about $.500, and on several occasions was more than double that number. Many Able Sermeas Preached. Among the many eloquent and Impres sive sermons preached during .the confer ence there were at least three which de serve special mention. First, ths sermon preached by Bishop Foster . one Sunday morning at the First Methodist church It was what was known as his "Astro nomical" Sermon, the text being taken from Psalms vlii. lli-iv, which reads as follows: When I consider Thy heavens the work of Thy fllngers," eta. Auyone who heard that sermon could never forget It. When the bishop came into the pulpit he looked weak and worn and some feared he would not be able to preach. But the sermon had not progressed far until tha Area of youth seemed to rekindle within him. Aa he be gan to picture tha immensity of space through which tha planeta revolve and tha amaslng beauty and grandeur of the handi work of tha Creator he seemed to fairly Uft tha audience out of their aeats and carry them with him in his flight through celestial realms. Tears streamed from the eyes of hundreds of his hearers and one man In tha audience aald when the bishop closed: "What a pity that man cannot live a hundred yeara longer." The second great effort waa that by Bishop Fowlar, ona Sunday afternoon at the old axpoaitlon building, on Capitol ave nue, where the sessions of the conference were held. The theme was the final tri umph of Christianity over the wk-kedneaa of tha world. Thoae who went to tha meet ing with gloomy views of tha work of the Christian church were lifted out of the slough of despond In a surprising manner.

Furniture of every description in this Great NoTember Clearing Sill . audience became electrified by his elo quence. The "ametu became so frequent at times that It looked as though the audi ence would break out and sing right In the midst of the sermon. The third notable sermon was preached by the late Bishop Nlnde, then of Topeka, Kan. It was a purely gospel sermon, fash ioned after the plain and simple words of the Master, but for soma mysterloua rea son the speaker seemed to be possessed of wonderful spirituality, and his words touched the hearts of the audience in a marvelous manner. To those of a very de vout inclination this was beyond doubt the moat Impressive sermon of the conference, and for many minutes after the sermon was over the people presaed around Bishop Nlnde to clasp his hand and tell him how much they were helped by his matchless gospel sermon. It was a Dwlght L. Moody effort In style snd effect, and Is undoubt edly remembered to this day by hundreda who heard it. Reporters at the Conference. Upon the floor in debate there were some very clever passages at repartee, hut all In good humor. In the center of the oratorical arena Dr. J. M. Buckley waa aver to be found. He waa then and is today one of the ableat debaters In the country. He would have become distinguished in the house or senate of the United States had he planned his life differently and gained a seat in congress. He can both take and give a thrust with infinite grace and seat. On ona occasion Dr. Buckley had been trying to gain possession of the floor in a debate upon some important question, but many others were demanding recognition of the presiding bishop, who happened to be Bishop Fowler on that day. Dr. Buckley 1 had spoken on the question once and Bishop Fowler was determined that all who desired to speak should be heard before j Dr. Buckley should again take possession of the floor. But Dr. Buckley was very ' anxious and continued to bob up at the close of each short speech,, demanding recognition. Again and sgaln Bishop Fowler granted the floor to someone else until the entire audience became greatly amused at Dr. Buckley's expense. Finally there came an opening when Dr. Buckley felt confident he should have recognition, and taking a position In the middle of the hall he made one more determined effort to gain the floor. "Have all the delegates spoken who de sire to speak to the question before tha house?" asked Bishop Fowler, paying no attention to Dr. Buckley. Suddenly a man arose In tha back part of tha ball and said he would like to say a word. "You have the floor," said Bishop Fowler, and the audience laughed heartily again at Dr. Buckley'a discomfiture. But Dr. Buckley was not to be silenced so easily. "I fcave one consolation, Mr. President," he said, looking the bishop full In ths facs and still standing. "What is your particular consolation at this hour, my brother?" asked the bishop, with a merry twinkle In bis eys. "I read In the scriptures," aald Buckley, "that we ahall finally be delivered from tha snara of the fowler." A roar of laughter and applause fol lowed, and for the moment Dr. Buckley had the bishop in a corner. But quick as a flash, and yet as calm and bland as a summer day, Bishop Fowler turned the tide of amuaement on Dr. Buckley by aaylng: "And we read in the same passage, my brother, that we ahall also ba delivered from the noisome pestilence." For several minutes the audience was convulsed with laughter, and Dr. Buckley seemed to enjoy ths Joke as much as anyone. After a few mlnutea tha bishop granted Dr. Buckley the floor, and he made ona of the moat power ful speecbea of tha conference. J. M. OILLAN.
