after a protracted debate IIDOII the soleii

called out by the sarcastic remark
Senator Meek thai the bill "might as wi

which were greeted by undlgniliud lau

After nearly three weeks' delay t

what the members of the committee ai

This result forms one of tlio gratult

There is a soiinel and substantial basi
for the continual lirmness in the real of
tate market in Omaha. That basis i
the rapid growth of the city in popuhi
tion and wealth , and the steaely incrcas
of the wage uarners. Tliero are few idl
workingmeii in Omaha. Tlio shops
milh , factories anel foundries , the rail
roads anel public Improvements are em
ploying more men this summer than eve
before , Steaely wagns for workingmoi
means a steaely growth for the city when
the workingmeii live.
It only needs a short elrivo aroune
Omaha outside of its contro to convince tin
mostsoeptical that the numerous transfer ,
of real estate are by no means principally
speculative. There are Iiunelredsof sinal
collages going up in every direction
most of wliieh are buili by owners of tin

more homes built by men of moelorate

arceteei for intending purchasers on tin

for renting. Tlio surest evidence of the
prosperous growth of tho1 city is Hie fac
that five hundred cottages could bo rontoi
