Omaha enters upon the fifty-first year
of Its existence with a population of 135,
60S. Including that of Its suburb. South
Omaha, which, although separately Incor
porated, la essentially the same city.
. Within the area of thirty and one-half
square miles, embracing the territory cov
ered by Omaha and South Omaha, there
are 23,110 residences and dwelling houses;
1,428 stores and office buildings, ware
houses and factories; 65 hotels, 66 school
bouses and 109 church edifices, representing
aa Investment In Iron, brick and mortar
of more than 4100,000,000. The aggregate
value of all the lands and Improvements
within the limits of Omaha and South
Omaha approximates 2160,000,000.
The most impressive proof of - Omaha's
substantial growth may be found in Its
building'' record, which shows that during
the last year more than 1,000 dwelling
bouses, ranging from 21,000 to 250,000 in
value, and more than 60 factory buildings,
warehouses and store buildings, ranging
from 27,500 to CSOO.000, and approximating a
total valuation of 26,000,000, have been
erected within the year, or are In process
In addition to the building improvements
mads by private owners, more than half
a million dollars has been expended for
i paving, sewers, street grading, sidewalks,
etc., and more than 21,000,000 has been ex
pended by tho public utility corporations
In tho extension of street railways, sub
ways and conduits, and reconstruction of
. Tne magnitude of Omaha's commercial
operations la exhibited by its bank clear
ings, wholesale trade and Industrial
statistics, which challenge comparison with
any other city of equal population ln
America. The bank clearings of Omaha
hava nearly doubled within tho last do-
eado, aggregating for tho year 1905 tho
okjaaal figure of 2445,0CO,O0O, and tho de
posit ln tho banks have mounted within
tha same period from 218,000,000 to 245,000,
Nothing has contributed mors to tho
substantial and rapid growth of Omaha
than tha extensive stock yards and pack
ina houses. Located ln tho very center of
tha great American corn belt, Omaha was
oaaly recognized as possessing many
natural advantages for becoming a great
tlva stock market.
Aa tha third live stock and packing
houso oonter in Amer'ca, Omaha has ex
ported 46,000 car loads of dressed moat
products and by-products, aggregating in
Cttnaba'a phenomenal growth Is largely If
not wholly due to Its exceptionally favor-
abia pa anion as a great distributing cen
ten With twenty railroads converging at
thin paint from every direction Omaha Is
not only able to supply Its natural trade
territory but reaches clear across tho ooa'
Unent to market Its warea Within tho
past year tha Jobbing trade of Omaha has
reached high water mark, aggregating
a early 970,000.000, while tho products of Its
Industrial establishments exceed 217S.000.000
tn marknt value.
For many years Omaha had vainly en
deavored to establish a grain market, but
tho advent of tho Chicago Great Western
railway created a diversion, that
brought about tho erection of half a dozen
grain elevators, with a capacity of 6.000.000
bushels, and has firmly established Omaha
aa ooa of the leading grain markets of the
oountry. With the establishment of a grain
market, the erection of flouring and cereal
mills in tha future Is practically assured.
Manufacturing ln Omaha has assumed
very respectable proportions. The aggro
gate product of Omaha Industrial establish
menta during tha past year, exclusive of the
product of tho pecking houses, which
reached high-water mark with an output
Of rtO7.OIO.O0O. was pa.OOO.OCO. A conservative
estimate of the number of wageworkers em
ployed la Omaha's Industrial establish
ments. Including those employed In
tbe stock yards and packing houses,
pJaooa that number at 12.600. Tho
most encouraging featuro of Omaha's In
dustrial growth Is the gradual increase ln
tha. number and variety of small factories
fabricating articles in general demand In
this section of tho country. Uuder suofa
conditions tha prospects of Omaha's con
tinued progress is most encouraging.

the leading; flnanclal and money oenters of
the west. The old-established banking
houses In Omaha have acquired a wide rep
utatlon for stable and prudent management.
As one of the national reserve cities, Omaha
has extensive deposits from the banking
houses of the cities and towns In the In
terior of this and adjacent states. The
growth of Omaha's banking business Is
strikingly shown by comparison of the
clearing house record for the past decade
and by comparison of the aggregate de
posits In Omaha financial Institutions, with
their deposits in fanner years. In 1890 de
posits In Omaha and South Omaha banks
aggregated a fraction over 218,000,000 and the
clearings aggregated 2175.000,000. In 1903 the
deposits of Omaha and South Omaha banks
aggregated 215,000,000 and the clearings have
amounted up to 2446,000,000.

No financial institution in the city has
shown a larger percentage of growth each
year than J. L. Brandels & Sons' bank.
Beginning business ln September, 1902, the
bank has today nearly 6,000 depositors, with
total deposits of more than 2650,000. While
the bank has made substantial earnings,
there has been no disposition on the part
of the management to seek largo profits, a
strong preference having been shown for
bonds and other securities of the highest
class. Since Its organization the bank has
purchased Omaha city bonds freely, having
been successful during that period in ob
taining more Issues than any other bank.
Backed as it is by substantial and success
ful men, this bank begins tho new year
under most favorable conditions and is

enter business for himself, rather than
cling to the paternal enterprise. A compar
atively short time ago he opened a broker
age office for the handling of Investment
securities and has made it prosper. Inci

broker who placed the recent issue of Jap

Among the few companies in Omaha
that devote their attention almost exclu
sively to dealing in mortgage loans and
bonds Is 8tull Bros. They are the Nebraska
representative of a number of large eastern
corporations, whose money is placed
through them and most of the large mort
gage loans ln Omaha have, during the last
six years, been negotiated by this firm.
During said period they have placed over
21,250,000.00 on Omaha city property at low
rates of interest
Mr. William Stull, who Is the head of
the firm, was formerly a resident of Lin
coin, Neb., and is a man of twenty-five
years of experience In banking and in
dealing ln high grade investments. The
conservative, yet progreslve, management
of this firm has placed it among Omaha's
most solid institutions.
The Wholesale Trade
The location of Omaha at the gateway of
tha great transcontinental system of rail
ways has given It extraordinary advantages
as a jobbing center. The Omaha wholesale
trade has more than kept pace with the
growth of the city; its Jobbers have within
the past five years enlarged their range of
activity and their trafno has been extended
into territory heretofore tributary to Chi
cago, St. Louis, Kansas City and San Fran
The Paciflo coast, and especially the
country traversed by the Oregon Short Line
from Salt Lake to Puget Bound has become
a valuable field for Omaha Jobbers. South
Dakota, Iowa, Kansas and Missouri mer
chants are also making heavy purchases ln
Omaha of certain classes of goods.
There are now 161 firms ln Omaha doing
strictly wholesale business. The follow
