The live commercial club of
Omaha , consisting of the princes
of that commercial center , vis

Mayor Barrett add a large
number of the business men met
them at the station with hacks
and carriages and escorted the
visitors up town.
Arriving upon Main street ,
each business representative
sought the retail merchant in
their line , and proceeded to
make himself known. It is not
the intention or aim of the club
to solicit orders on their Trade
Boosters' excursions , but merely
to extend acquaintances and
make new friends , and these
trips have been quite successful
in the matter of extending the
acquaintance of the wholesale
merchants of Omaha and ce
menting their business ties with
the retail merchant. Such a
spirit of interest is one of the
most commendable features of

were distributed with a lavish
hand by the visitors , the re

indeed. To remember all would
tax our brain a trille too heuv-

so good that we cannot refrain
from mentioning them. Among
the first to whom we received
an introduction , was J. C. Dahl-
man , mayor of Omaha , one of
the most thoroughly honest ,
conscientious men it has ever
been our pleasure to meet.

McCullough , managing editor
of the Omaha Bee. This publi

his ability in managing impor
