Onion NKW YORK. da THE MILLARD. An Important Event in tliu History of the Date 01 y , The Magnificent New Hotel Thrown Open For Guests. 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.
