The Magnificent New Hotel
Thrown Open For
A Description of tuo Prottiott
Structure in Omnlin.
No event of greater local impor
tance haa occurred in Omaha for four
years than that which took place on
Thursday last , when the doors of the
new and magnificent Millard hotel
were thrown open to the public. Since
the fire of September f , 1878 , Omaha
haa not once known what it wns to
have sufliciont hotel accommodations
for visitors , and it lias been a draw
back to the city and a source of untold
annoyance to travelers generally.
The opening of the beautiful nnd
commodious structure on the north-
oast'corner of Douglna and Thirteenth
streets changes all thia , imd although
unattended with nny flourish of trum
pets , it is as great a step toward met
ropolitan rank and importance aa the
opening of the Opera II > uao or the
acqisitioii ot a now railroad.
A YKAR'S WORK.
The undertaking , thus practically
accomplished , waa begun August 15th ,
1881 , and pushed with skill , energy
nndjdotornnnation , aided by the un
usually favorable winter weather to
timlly and appropriate completion.
While the ring of the hammer is still
heoifd it ia but the addition of the
lulling touchfs to one of the finest
and ? boat arranged hotela in the coun
