William A. Paxton , Thomas Swobc ,
Frank Murphy , diaries \V. Hamilton ,
Potcr Her , J. M. Woohvorlh and Milton
Itoffcrs , of the South Omalia Land Syiull-
ciito. The suit grows out of the recent
syndicate troubles which have already
been clearly otitliifed In tlioso columns.
IJosler seeks to enforce the transfer of the
South Omaha Syndicate land to him , as
per alleged agreement for $750,000. , In
support of his request he presents some
The petition gors on to recite the facts
about the purchitHo of the land several
years ago by the syndicate , the incorpor

ance of bonds. It thiiii recites that dls
pensions finally arose between the mem
bers of the syndicate , as well as anxiety
and doubt about the problem of meeting
the payment of the lirwt scrie& of
bonds which Were fast maturing This
dissatisfaction with the management of
uflhiragrew more and more pronounced ,
and llnally it was determined to sell the
land. On the ? th of May , 1835 , a
meeting of the directors wns had. A resolution
elution was passed authorizing Mr. Alex
Swan to bell the land to anv responsible
party , provided ho could get $750,000 for
it , tliesnlo to bo effected by thelirstof
August , 188(1. ( On the eighth of July ,
1830 , it ifl alleged , Mr. Swan
wns present at a meeting of the
syndicate directors , and told them that
lie would bo readv to ull'ect the sale at an
early day None of them dissented. On
the 23d of .July following the transfer of
the property to the plriintiir , lioslcr , was
named upon by Mr. Swan , for the sum
of $750,000. July 21 Hosier came to
Omaha , expecting to close up the details
of the sale , and found Hamilton , Murphy ,
unit Swobo working tooth and nail to de
feat the execution of the contract , and
1'lj'ing their associates with every argu

These three men , Hosier alleges , entered
into a grand conspiracy to accomplish
their cim of defeating the sale to Hosier.
According to his petition a scheme was
formed to inducc him ( Hosier ) to pay in
$250,001) ) on hie contract , and then to deposit
posit this amount in Frank Murphy's
bank , the Merchant's National , with all
the other available assets of the syndi
cate. This money oncesafo in the vaults
of the bank , it is charged , and suit would
bo commenced to enjoin the transfer of
the land to Hosier , which was to be
drawn out for years by all the
processes known to the acute legal
mind. After this wrangling had
ono on for a considerable
length of time , one of the conspirators
was to buy in the svndicato land , accord
ing to a plan to be forced upon the other
stockholders. These charges of fraud
arc bucked up by minute details.
The petition "states with reference to
the claims of Milton Rogers that he
purchased but.50,000 worth of bonds , on
which hp paid only $13,500 , For
bis share -of- the purchase money
oflcrcd by' Hosier , ho would have received
$26t800or 115 per cent on his investment ,
besides 7 per cent interest during the two
The document concludes by asking for
the appointment of a receiver for the
moneys of the syndicate , and also that
the directors be enforced to niako the
transfer to Hosier. Judge Dundy has
cited the defendants to appear before
him on the first day of court , and will
then lake action on Hosier's request.
In all probability Mr. Herman Kountzo
will bo appointed receiver. Yesterday af
ternoon a demand was madoby thn'plaln-
tiff's attorneys , Tliuivston and Hall , for
the possession of the property , and it was
believed that the defendants would turn

STILL IN THE RING ,
A Few Facts In Eegard to Omaha's Eoal
A SURE AND STEADY MARKET.
The Finest City and Aero Property
to bo Found on the
There is no business in the city ol
Omnha to-day tbat Is attracting so much
attention as the real estate business.
Every move in real cstato is closely
watched , and speculators and homo
seekers are alike Interested. Time and
hue again it has. been pronhcsicd that
the boom could not lust , nnd that it was
only a question of time when the market
would go to pieces. Notwithstanding all
hcso dlro predictions the real cstato
market was never before as strong and
icalthy as to-day. While Omaha is en
joying a real cstato boom it is a sure and
steady advance in prices. There have
been no scalcy speculations , no attempt ,
o bull the market , but the rapid and
substantial growth of the city Uas natur-
illy forced up the prices of real estate ,
jut not above a reasonable liguroforso
lourishing a city. There has been no
sales made at fabulous prices , but , on the
contrary , most of the property sold has
jcpn considered cheap at the purchase
i > riec.
Because of this healthy state of trade
.n real estate everybody is anxious to in
vest. The rich man and the poor man
juy city property , some for speculation ,
jut moro for the purpose of obtaininjr a

being rapidly picked up and prices are
daily advancing. There are , however ,
two very desirable additions in which
city lots can still bo had at most reason
able figures and on most reasonable
erms. Wo refer to "Mayno Place" aud
'Orchard Hill. " both of which are for
sale by C. E. Mayno , southwest coiner of
fifteenth and Farnam streets.
No place within the city can be found
such choice building Jots as in these two
additions. Seekers of homes fully real-
zo this fact and are daily making pur
chases in these additions. "Maync
'laco" has only been on the market ten
lays and many lots have been sold dnr-
ngthattime. "Orchard Hill , " has only

u regard to these things , but call at Mr.
Mayne's ollico and you will iind gentle-
nanly salesmen readv to drive you out to
see the property and no harm will be
lone whether you purchase or not. At
my rate it will be a good thing for you
to seethe property and may bo tlio means

Detrimental food which , by reason of

aiown , frequently acts iipon the moro
lelicato organs of the child to nroduco
lisordcrs of the most serious character.
The amount of laudanum vr other pol on
that would bo harmless to an adult will
cause the death of an infant. This great
lifibreuco between the vitality of ndults
and children is too generally overlooked
n the prcapralion of food. Because no
iiirm immediately pcreoptablo comes to
the adult by llio use of an article of food ,
10 thought is given the ofl'ect it may have
ipon the moro delicate organs of inferior
Children diet largely upon cake and

and composed of materials that are free
rom injurious substances , are easily di
gested , nutritious and wholesome. There
s a danger to our children , however ,
urklug in their bread and , cake which is
,00 often lost sight of. These articles are
low leavened largely by baking powders
aliii when pure and wholesome baking
) owdcrs are used they make not only the
nest palatable food , but one much more
vholesome and nutiitivo than if leav
ened witii ycnst or cream of tartar and
soda. The trouble arises from the fact
as shown by recent scientific tests by the
jovcrnmont chemists and by official
joards of health that all these baking
lowdors , with the single exception of the
loyal , contain cither lime , alum , phos-
) hates or acids of an injurious character.
Therefore when bread or cake is made
vith the use of these cheap baking pow-
lers t ieso ingredients ( winch are present
hrough the oflbrts of the manufacturers

he lood and are taken into the delicate
organs of childhood , where they are the
ourco of very much of the disease with
vhich our children are alllictcd.
Persons who have not strong constitu-
ions , growing girls , young children and
uirsing mothers , are particularly liable

luclion of the adulterants named as found

'rofessor Willard Parker , United States

L'horo should be as much care in the
ihoico of a baking powder as in obtain-
ng pure milk or in having a prcscrip-
ion compounded from pure drugs and
lot from poisons.
The matter is one of the greatest im-

Brief Interviews Gathered 'on the
A. TMaryott : "I thing Omaha ought
to take some steps to abolish , the same
as other cities , what has now become a
smoke nuisance. There arc days during
the year when certain parts of tbo centre
of the city look like Pittsburg. The coal
dust falls from thcso clouds thick enough
to destroy any place intended to be kept
clean , and , indeed , making necessary a
change of linen for the gentleman who
is engaged in genteel business. These
clouds of smoke are frequently so dense
that the windows of offices , and oven the
hotels , have to bo closed during the day
and night , because there are several
smoke-stacks bolchinir forth dense masses
after night sets in. Now , in other cities ,
this smoke business is declared a
nuisance , and the owners of buildings in
which engines are employed are com
pelled to use smoke consumers. This
ought to be done in Omaha , because she
is suffering relatively as much as Chicago
over did from this abomination.

against Street Commissioner Meany.
They are instigated by the democratic
enemies who know that ho is a useful

place might bo filled by a democrat. The
charges were trumped up by the same
