J. M. Hiecof , HuileyAUiirasCo.Tilnho ,
Interviewed by a reporter of this paper ,
says scarcely seven years ago there was
not a white habitation within seventy
miles of llailoy. In the short period of
time intervening the Indians have been
subdued and placed on reservations ; sil
ver , gold and lead mines have been dis
covered and developed with such aston
ishing rapidity that this year's yield in
Al turns county alonu will bo about
$0,000,000 , and but u small portion oi the
county has been prospected. Jt is reasonable
enable to conclude from the past devel
opments that in 1830 the output of ore
and bullion will reach $10,000,01)0. ) Other
portions of the territory are being pros
pected and worked with good results.
The placers of Snake river are rich and
extensive , some claims paying as high as
SiiU per day to the man , and in the near
future these mines will yield their mil
The completion of the Oregon Short
Line railroad along the Snake river has
done much to fucilituto the development
of these rich gravel bunks. The copper
mines of the Wciser district arc attract
ing capitalists ; a heavy syndicate has
formed in Portland , Oregon , to reduce
the ores from this section. Mining is not
he only attraction that is drawing people
ple to the territory. Millions of acres of
as line agricultural land us there is in
America are awaiting the emigration
that is vet to conic. This land is all sub
ject to liTmicstoud , preemption ami tim
ber entries , as the Oregon Short Line
railroad' only owns what its road-bed
"What elloct do you think this western
settlement will have on the future of
Omaha ? "
"Tho very best. The geographical
position of your city must soon command
the trade as far west as the western
boundary of Idaho , as goods from the
east can bo laid down hero cheaper by
your wholesale merchants than can be
done by the retailer and consumer , for
the simple reason that the lowest rates
are given to the largest shipper. This
will in the future give the imlk of the
trade as fur west as Oregon to your city.
At-present , much of- the trade of Idaho
is going from Sun Francisco and Port
land , but not entirely without a cause , as
before the completion of the Oregon
Short Line railroad they got about all of
it , and trade once centered at any given
point.is ditlicult to change. "
"Do you think that it would bo bettor
for the merchants of Idaho to trade in
the cast ? "
"Certainly , especially on all machinery
and manuiacturcd goods or any commo
dity that must be shipped from the cast.
Now they are shipped one thousand
juilcs west of us ; the extra cost of bring
ing them back coupled with the western
merchants' percentage and many other
expenses added , such u.s damage and
wharfage and interest , make the goods
come nitiqji btghCr4o.tbo consumer than
if purchased east. With the rapid settle
ment of the agricultural and mineral re-
hoiirccs lying west , yon should in ten
years swell your population to 100,000.
Of course much depends upon the en
terprise and energy of your present
THE HYNOIVS SESSION.
There was a largo attendance yester
day and last evening at the sessions of
the United Presbyterian synod now being
held in this city. Additional delegates
arrived during the day , and the interest
ing exorcises drew congregations which
completely lillcd the church. The morn
ing hours were devoted to routine busi
ness , receiving reports of committees ,
nominating additional standing commit
tees , etc. *
TH the afternoon an excellent and forci
ble discourse was delivered by Rev. Wil
liam Johnson on the subject ot "Practical
interpretation of the hand of God in pro
vidence. " 'The speaker was listened to
throughout with the closest attention.
iii thoovoning the session was opened
with devotional exercises , after which the
Jlov. W. G. M. Hayes addressed the con
gregation on "Thu Means of Grace and
the Christian's Obligations to Them. "
The speaker designated the Word , the
tiucrumont and prayer as the means of
grace laid down for the guidance of
Christians. The use of those means was
declared necessary , because every Chris
tian needs them in order to lead a eon-
bistont life , and the Lord has directed
them to bo used , But their use alone is
of no avail , for "faith without works is
dead , "
Hev. W. U , Shaw then read a paper on
"Tho Business Man in the Church. " Ho
filuled that there are large numbers of
congregations throughout the country
wbo have no business men , or else they
attend strictly to their private allairs and
neglect the Lord's business. The speak
er said there was great need for business
men in the church men who thought their
Creator had some demand on their busi
ness qualitlcatlons. There are other
things to be considered in this life bu-

QAt the conclusion of the paper , a peti
tion was received from the presbytery of
Pawnee asking that a new synod bo or
ganized , to bo composed of the presby
teries of Omaha and Pawnee and bo
known as the synod of Nebraska. The
petition was referred to the proper com-
Jiiitteo , to bo reported on at to-day's ' meet-
ing.An invitation was received from J. L ,
mid William L , McUaguo , asking the
members of the synod and their ladies to
take a two-hours' drive about the
city to-day. The kind invitation
was accepted , ami the hour
for the drive fixed from 1 to 2:30 : this af-
tcniuon. An invitation was also re
ceived from the ladles of the. Omaha
church for the synod to take dliinur at
the parfoiiago , which was also accented ,

The Missouri , Kansas and Nebraska
board of lire underwriters resumed their
session at Central ball jesterday at 1 (

was transacted and various committees
were appointed. Before the morn'

The increase in the number of bearing
orchards and viiieyaids in Nebraska ami
Iowa , especially in the immediate vicin
ity of Omaha , is very noticeable. The
oft repealed statement that fruit would
not grow in Ibis country to any advan
tage lias boon proven ful-c. The great
trouble with those who planted orchards
and vineyards was that they procured
nui-scry stock of fancy varieties which
were not vigorous enoujjrh for the ell-
mute. After expensive loc-ous , fruit
growers are beginning to learn what
varieties are best suited to the locality ,
and an increase in the amount of fruit 'is
the result. Four or live jours ago nil the
grapes grown in that part of Nebraska
and Iowa immediately tributary to
Omaha were sold out in a retail \\uy lo
gtocer- : and consumers. This year in
spite ot the fuel I hat the vines have little
more than half a crop , commission
men have bundled thousands of
pounds of home-grown grapes.
Small farmers and gardeners
continue to fnrni-h , to a large extent , the
retail dealerswhile commission men ship
largo quantities to other points. Con
cords appear lo bo the only variety that
has proven entirely satisfactory thus far.
The growing of apples bus also increased

A great extent , supplied from local or-
chuids. At present huge quantities of
apples are received from New York , Mis
souri and Michigan , which arc shipped
all over the state by the commission
houses. It is the opinion of the very best
informed that before many years Nebras
ka will be able to not only supply the
home demand , but oven puck apples for
Ilomo-grown watermelons arc not a
very grout success , but the nutmeg and
muskmelon grown in this vieinitv are
hard to beat in any stale. Small 'fruits
uro being introduced by gardeners and
are proving a grout success. Berries of
all kinds grow readily and are of very
line lluvor and quality.
All that is required to make fruitgrow
ing a success in this state is patience and
care in selecting and planting the orch
ards and vineyards.
THK PROPOSED WORK HOUSE.
"I sec thnt the special work house com-
millcc sent in a report lust night recom
mending that the petition of the county
commissioners regarding the erection of
a work house receive the hearty support
of the city council , " remarked Council-
mun Goodrich yesterday. "I don't ' think
that they should have done it yet ; I am a
member of the commitlco myself , and I
did not see a sign of the report. The
fact of the matter is that this county does
not need aworkhousp which will turnout
products to come in competition with
the products of honest labor. It will
simply bo bringing up unothcr phase of
the conviel labor question. Tlio city and
state are ajrcudy llooded with the arti
cles muiiut'ucturod under the convict la
bor syslepi of Lincoln. I am in favor of
having some place where llio cily and

would bo holler than to board those fol

Report was received at Union Pacific
hcadquarcr.s ( yesterday , that the car

jlammable mass , caught a fair headway
in moment , and it- was only through et-
lorts little short of miraculous that a , cou-
