In connection with the formation of the Missouri River Improvement association Thursday, Park Commissioner Cornish ex ploited a. scheme for preventing floods In the East Omaha district, lying In the vicin ity of Florence and Cut-Off lakes. He asserts that the expenditure of $119,600 for a dike will result In the added value of nearly $6,000,000 to 7,600 acres of land, situ ated partly In Iowa and partly In Nebraska, Further, that It will remove the sole ob jection to a magnificent public park con tiguous to Cut-Off lake. At the north olty limits of Omaha, the Missouri strikes oft In an almost easterly direction, flowing thence In a wide semi circle, and resuming the course directly southward near the foot of Burt street. The lahd enclosed In the seml-clrcle thus made Is called the East Omaha district. Part of It was laid out for a manufacturing suburb by the old East Omaha Land com pany, pavements constructed and a num . ber of factories are now- established there, j To the northward are scattered homes, truck gardens and a dense growm oi irees and underbrush. In times of high water nearly the whole section Is Inundated. The water comes pouring In from the concave bend of the river opposite Florence and north of Flor ence lake until stopped by the pavements erected at high water level In the south part of the tract Keeps Value of Laai Dow a. "Because of this fact," says Park Com missioner Cornish, "the land Is cheap and much of Jt has no value at all. Borne of It rents for $4 an acre annually. The ever constant danger of floods makes the building of factories or homes, or the ex tensive cultivation of the soli haiardous. I have had plans drawn for an embank men along th. south shore of the river north of Florence lake, and the estimate of the engineering department Is' that a dike 100 feet wide Would cost $156,400, while one seventy-five feet wide, which would suffice, would cost $119,699. It would af ford absolute protection, not only against floods, but against the destruction of land. I have figured it out that the added value to the 7,600 acres Involved would not be far short of $5,000,000. The last ground of ob Jcctlon to the Cut-Oft lake park, which I have long advocated, would be obviated. You would see the East Omaha district covered by factories, small farms and dwellings, and the result could not fall to pay many times for the expenditure." It is in this district that the river has destroyed scores of acres of rich farm lands during th. present year. " ' Th. Improvement association heard Mr Cornish, but took no action on his pro ject, as it had not arrived at the point of dealing with the local necessities. How ever, It was recognized that the condition gives Omaha a special Interest in the move' ment, and for that reason It bas been made the headquarters of the new associa tion. . . th. ages of 16 to li. but to enlist they must Obtain th. consent of their parents or guar dians.

NINE MEN AFTER THE PLACE Candidate! for Postmaiteu Jp Are at Fam Heat of Anxiaty. APPOINTMENT COMES IN DECEMBER Senator Millard, who Will Make Roe entmendatloa, Declines to Com mit Himself as to the Probable Winner. The fight for the postmastershlp of Omaha la rapidly coming to a focua and th. rivalry and anxiety of the contestants, of whom there are nine, ar. reaching fever heat Th. appointment Is to be made about December to and thus far Senator Millard, upon whom devolves th. power of deter mining who shall get this rich plum, has not made a decision. The senator is non committal and says h. will not make up his mind on the matter until after he gets back to Washington, and he will not start for the capital until next Friday. The nine republicans who are supposed to be striving for th. postmastershlp are: Th. present Incumbent, Postmaater Crow, Assistant Postmaster James I. Wooilard, Mel Uhl, Robert Cowell, II. E. Palmer, Clement Chase, Daniel H. Wheeler, Frank Hsnloa and T. W. Blackburn. "I decline to say who the nine men are," asserted Senator Millard when asked for a statement. "I presume It is pretty well known that both Mr. Crow and Mr. Wood ard are out for the place," he added. "I am violating no confidence, I think, when I say that eacji one of these gentlemen would feel hard If he was not recommended by me for the place. I will not any at present who I think will be the choice or who seems to stand the best show. I will not give any Intimation, for I have not made up my mind for my own satisfaction and will not until I get back to Washing ton. .The place will be filled by December tO. It Is a good office, pays $1,200 a year in salary and will pay $5,000 in a couple o years more if the receipts continue to 1 crease as they have been dilng. It's a Important office, too, for It employ. & large number of men and women directly an.l pays out a large amount of money. In fact all Its receipt, since the establishment of th. rural free delivery service." Crow Gives tp Hope. It Is pretty generally understood on in side circles ' that Postmaster Crow has about abandoned hope of getting the posi tion again. He declined to make any contribution to the last campaign fund, saying that he expected to retire to private life." However, he would not turn down th. Job If It was again tendered him. Woodard I. depending on hi. record as assistant postmaster, in $vhlch capacity he has been awaiting promotion for some time. Mel Uhl, business manager of the Dally News, was a member of the legis lature that made Mr. Millard senator, and that I. th. wire which he is pulling to land him the office. Robert Cowell ha. been the chairman of republican commit tees, and as such managed two successful republican campaigns, the cfty and county, and I. depending upon his good record and allegiance to the party for reward. Han Ion 1. somewhat of a dark horse, whose personal friendship of Senator Millard is his strong card. As for Tom Blackburn he Is hoping on the basis of discredited promises ' mads him in th. prospect of Mercers re-election last fall. , Blackburn la not regarded at a formidable candidate. - Ml Dressed Man YOUR CREDIT IS GOOD HERE, Any man or boy can be well d reused without expending all tholr ready cash.
