CORN LEADS ALL OTHER CEREALS Shipments Oat of Omaha Alao Are Mark Heavier Than la the Same Month for Last Year. Grain receipts on the Omaha market for the months of January just passed were 4,277,700 bushels an Increase of 1,730.300 bushels over the receipts of the same month last year when 2,647,400bushels arrived on the Omaha market during the month. The principal Increase Is shown In the receipts of corn, though 200,000 more bushels of wheat were sold here. Oats broke even. Shipments were much heavier, the els valors having vast amounts of wheat In storage unloaded a large amount during January and while the receipts of wheat were 1,022,400 bushels, 3.649,000 bushels were sold and shipped out of Omaha, Corn ship ments were so much smaller than the re ceipts that the report of the grain exchange for the month indicated that much corn had been stored. For the first time In many months, the barley shipments were heavier than the receipts. The consumption of barley by the Industries of Omaha has kept the ship ments low.

Miller, Stewart & Beaton 413-415-417 SOUTH SIXTEENTH STREET. J Resolved. Thst this company of represea tstlve cltisens of Omaha cordially endorses the project of establishing In our city a university for the promotion ofound learn ing and pract.cal training under such Christian auspices, as shall be free rrom ,iitiri rAtiirni while, at the same time, conducing to the highest and moat useful tvne o f oltlsenshlD. and that we hereby tender the project our encourage ment and sunoort. This resolution was unanimously aaopiea by a rising vote at the close of a banquet at the Rome hotel Monday night at which tha orolect of a new university for Omaha was discussed by the leading cltisens oi the city. About seventy of the most promt nent men of Omaha gathered to hear ei the project and to learn of what had been done looking toward the establishment of the university, which Involves the moving of Bellevue college to Omaha. That considerable rjroat ess toward the establishment of this university has already been made developed from statements made bv Dr. H. H. Maynard. financial scrs- tar'y of Bellevue college, and by Dr. D. E. Jenkins of the Omaha Theological seminary. These gentlemen made the statement that 1300.000 will be given to the unlverelty from the general educational fund of 143,0(10,000 given by J. D. Rockefeller, provided Omaha would give 1200.000. It was also stated that $28,000 of thla money had already been given, $6,000 of it having been given by one donor who was present, but whose name waa not given. General C. F. Manderson was toast master and enlivened the meeting Dy several byplays. At the close he told of the good such a university could do to the city and bewailed the antics of city or ficlala, high in office, who delighted to sot in a most undignified manner. Where the Trees Stanas. Another Interesting episode was called forth when General Manderson called upon Victor Rosewater to state what the atti. tude of the Omaha press would be toward supporting the new university. Mr. Rose water replied that The Bee always stood ready to support any proposition which was for the good of Omaha but aald h could not speak for the press of the other side, which had opposed the acceptance of Rockefeller's tainted money for the Uni versity of Nebraska. He suggested that as a representative of the World-Herald was present he might be permitted to state what the attitude of his paper would be in this case. General Manderson then called upon W. R. Wataon, managing editor of the World Herald, for his views. Mr. Watson side stepped from the former position of his paper that it was not right for an educa tional inatltutton to accept tainted money by stating that the World-Herald would not take a back seat for any one but would stand up tor anything that waa for the good of Omaha. "All big things of Omaha have had a small beginning," said General Manderson. "It was so with the Transmlasisslppl ex position, suggested by E. Rosewater. Live, vigorous men carried It forward to a great success and Omaha owes all these men a debt of" gratitude. Success has come to most things Omaha has undertaken. Tou are embarking in an enterprise of great Importance to Omaha but when the citizen ship of Omaha puts Its shoulder o the wheel' It Is sure to succeed." Judge Howard Kennedy told of the his tory of Bellevue college from its founda tion to the present time and told of the greater advanluges of such a college if it was located In Omaha. Great Field la Omaha. Rev. Edwin Hart Jenks, pastor of tha First Presbyterian church, told of the needs of Omaha for just such a university as is planned. "We should look forward to the days that are to come," said Dr. Jenka. "We are proud of our atate university, but we wsnt to form ours on a little different plan. A university helps to complete the fabric of a great city. This Is not to be a Fresbyterlan university we have one now-but we want a university on broad lines." "I know of no place in the country where there Is an open field for a great educa tional institution like Omaha," said Dr. H. H. Maynard, who Is in close touch with those who are giving Urge sums to educa tion. "Can it be done? That Is the ques tion, and I turn that question right back to you gentlemen. Societies have advertised it to the world that they are tn the field to help Institutions of this kind. The board now has $43,000,000 and I understand there is more to come. The income of this money Is to be given to Institutions which will meef the conditions, which vsry as the board thinks fit. When that board takss hold of an Institution it sticks by It. Andrew Carnegie has also gens Into the college business as he expressea It. if the conditions are right the money will be given to you. It all depends on Omaha. We want $300,000 from Omaha and we will engage to put up $300,000. That will not make a university, but It is tha first sten. That will give us a campus and a liberal arts building and considerable ever for a neat egg. I think I know of three people who will give a building apiece." H. H. Baldrlge spoke of the elvie side of the project snd gava It as his opinion that ma great universities should be In the centers of population. Edacater'a Vlewaolat. Dr. W. M, Davidson, superintendent ef the public schools, told cf the relation of the secondary schools to a university. He told of the advantages of having different centers of edeucatlon and aald that 40 per cent of the attendance at Harvard came within a radius of 100 miles of Bos ton snd that the same waa nearly true of IJncoln. Mr. Davidson advocated the establishment at the start of a school of applied aciences, saying that technical schools are coming to the fore most rap. idly in this country -and that thla was Omaha's opportunity. He said that anf U per cent of the graduates of the high scnooi at umana went to colleges or unl. versltles. but with tha establishment of university in Omaha that could be raised to SO per cent lu ten years. Dr. T. J. Mackay of All Saints' church said that the churches were not meeting nw uquirtratnn or giving boys and airla a Christian education nor does the Sunday scnooi meet me issue. He said the most prominent ruins of ancient cities were their amphitheaters and coliseums and said ne nopca tnat, Omaha might become rather noted for Its schools and hospitals. The university is no longer a place for leisure education," said Dr. Jenkins, "and the universities of today are being planted near the smokestacks. The city furnishes the problems of today, both bf civilisation and religion." J. A. Munroa. freight traffle manager of the Union Paclfie, said ha thought the time waa ripe for the establishing of a univer sity at Omaha, He said that Omaha was now ready to handle auch a proposition aut that as the west was growing (est it well lor Omaha to step la ( uU time aad make a reputation as a neat of learning j before otner western cities were ready to take up the task. Others who spoke were Henry W. Tstes, President Stookey of Bellevue, C. C. George, W. T. Graham and Very Rev, George A. Beet her, dean of Trinity cathe dral. Each guest was given n printed plan of the new campus and the proposed build ings. The grounds include the old Redlck homesteal, the present residence of O. C.

"Children in the schools do not often faint away, but visitors often lose their senses," said Member Lindsay in explain ing his resolution.

The expenditures for the month lust closed were I47.S71.83. and for January, 1$0$, they were $47,021.90.
