It is flattering to know that the
bond buyers consider the obligations
of Omaha to be gilt edged. The
total outstanding is $22,294,288, with
$2,500,000 worth soon to be sold for

Omaha may have set the pace for
Lincoln and the rest of the com
munities of Nebraska, for most of
them are in the same race. Many
county seats look with pride at an
ornate new courthouse, but most of
these marble balls have not been
paid for. In some instances, as in
Clay county, the oconle have oaid
by taxation as they built. In others,
as in Colfax and in I'lattc, after at
tempting to pay as they went. he
citiiens finally resorted to bonding.
