It Will Almost Encircle thd Oity of
Omaha ,
The Line Will ho Constructed to
Make .Moncjnnd nttho Snnio
Tune to Develop tlio
"J sec , young man , " said a director of
llio cable line yesterday to a HKK re-
porler , "that you uro not satisfied with
tin ; outline of the cubic route ns given
you yesterdny. "
The rcpoitcr intimated tlmt so fur as ho
was concerned , lie had nothing to do
with the matter , but foil that the public
had coino to l'io ' conclusion the cable
line was not doing the square tiling with
them. "From a journalistic standpoint , "
Bald the reporter , "you certainly have
led the newspaper men a merry dance.
You liavo kept them running to your
ollices and residences at all hours of the
day and night , when , it you had not some
scllish motive , you might have easily told
them where you were going to run your
curs sl\ months ago. "
"Sou here , my young friend. " said the
director , "you are pretty correct. You
have followed us cloM'ly. and I don't
earo who knows It. I'll tell you some
thing in confidence. "
.Newspaper men ahvavs receive things
in confidence. They never disclose them
to anybody. They simply print them in
their papers , bat , ns everybody Knows , is not disclosing a secret , the Bin :
reporter has no desire to conceal the al
leged confidential talk with this pillar of
the grip.
The latter looked cautiously around ,
lowered his voice to a whisper and then
said : "Now yon mark my word. You
have come nearer than anybody to
guessing our ideas Wo once thought to
encourage you to remain silent , but ns
wo afterwards found out that that
wouldn't do , we concluded to remain
silent. Hut that limn has passed. We
am now ready to speak , and to tell boldly
and without mental reservation wheru
the cablu cars will hereafter run. They
will not run on Tenth sticot , they will
not run on llarney htreet , they will not
run on Twentieth , but they will run on
Twelfth to Davenport , thence to Jell'er-
ROII , thence to Hamilton , thence west
ward to Lowe road , up which they will
proceed to the vicinity of the deaf and
dumb institute where thuy will bisect I ho
tract of land owned by Creighton , Me-
Shune and Hitchcock. "
"Yon don't mean to bay "
"Just one moment ; I haven't ' finished.
The cars will not go back by the same
route. They will return .south by way of
Lowe avenue running along the beauti
ful ridge on the city limits , going as far
south as Leavenworth street. They will
then turn cast on that street which , as
you know , is going to bo beautifully
graded , running thcncu to the blurting
point. "
The leportcr gave expression to a
doubt ns to the aeeuracv of the gentle
man's knowledge , but the latter assured
linn that what ho had said would bo cor
roborated by any of his associates. The
cubic-company liadscluclcd the route men
tioned because it promised lo bo the most
quickly settled in any part of the city.
Already houses wore springing up u'll
along the line , and residences ot the
richest citi/.ciis were beginning to em
ploy in their erection a whole army of
workmen. Why , " ho continued fer
vently , "take Orchard Hill for instance ,
the prospect of that phico is remarkable.
One year ago it was beyond civili/.alion.
now itis tueming with active purchasers
and happy homes.
"Isn't G. E. luyne interested in your
"So far as my knowledge knows
Mayno has done his level best to Inarn
what I have told you , but thus fur ho is
just about as muen in the dark ns you
were. Ho watched us pretty
closely , and several times , when
ho thought ho know where
wo were going to build , by means of se
cret agents secured acres of property.
But we never thought for inoro than an
instant of building because ho had
bought. If yon search the transfer
record you will find that ho has been as
much in the dark as you have been. It
is trun that in running west on Hamilton
street wo pass Orchard Hill , but
plaut JMayne had purchased at an oxpcndi-
turo of $103,000 before we commenced to
ngitalc the cable business. The fact of
our going puht Orchard Hill is not because
wo love other places less , but because
wo love ourselves more.Ve arc
going to run the cable line for money ,
not for glory. It wo should run for the
latter wo could stretch our tracks along
the Missouri up toCalhouu. Itutwo don't
do it. There is not a foot of the country
wo pass over that will not , be thickly
populated in six mouths. This is an us-
surcd fact , because the property is in
every way beautiful and the prices are
low , while the terms are phenomenally
reasonable. "
"You mean to toll mo that C. B. May no
has not been mixed up in this some
way ? "
> rOnly us I tell you , oxcnjit that
I know ho Inu" guaranteed us
an excellent sum if wo should dcoido to
puss Orchard Hill. Hut wo arc doing
more than that.Yo arc running north
ward to it , and will eventually enter the
points beyond , some of which are the
most bcautitul in the city , lint wo don't
vtuntMayno's bous , anymore than wo
want yours. Good tiny. "
"Just a moment" suggested the repor
ter. "Has Muyno any property on Lowe
"I don't know. Sco horc , young man ,
I don't like your scepticism "
"Well. 1 can't help that"said the re
porter. "Hut what do you expect to gain
by going on to Louvonworlh ? "
"Don'tyon know that that thoroughfare
is the only load to the country on the
wost. Don't yon know that it loads to
West End depot of tlio Missouri Paul lie
road ? Don't ' you know that more houses
have gene up In that vicinity because of
this fuel than in almost any other part of
the city ? If you don't , then lake a drive
out there and bo convinced. The grad
ing of that thoroughtaro will enable us
to establish u pormuncut ( rack. And
then , right immcdiutluy west of Park uvo-

There is a forluno in it for the owner , be

"That'K ( ho same piece. Muyuo made

Stray I.cnvcM From n llcportcr'n
The truth of the old axiom , "Never
inakc u bargain until you know what
you nro going to get , " Is illustrated in
a most ludicrous manner by n little story
told on the gcnllcmc.n of the Belt Line
The genllcmen of that corporation cnst
their en vlous ejes on a lot on Sixteenth
and Nicholas streets , which they thought
they must have. It was owned by a Mrs.
Carroll who was willing enough to part
\yltli it for llm proper money considcru-
lion. But there was n tenant , tin old ,
dried-up Irishman , who lived on Iho
properly in question , having a thrco-
year's lease thereon. The hind , of course
could not be sold until his claim was dis
posed of. lln was approached by a rep-
rcsentnlivc of llio Belt Line , who
proposed lo him llmt the company would
give him HO.1) ) and move his house off the
lot to any place thai ho might designate.
1'ho old Irishman cheerfully accepted
the offer. The money was paid over ,
and the Irishman was asked where he
desired his house moved. "To Oirclund ,
bejubbcrs. " he replied.
The Belt Line ofliclnls took this us n
huge joke and laughed hearty. Their
merriment was turned to something else
when they discovered that the Irishman
was terribly in earnest and proposed to
hold them to the letter of their contract.
At lust accounts , the old man still had
his if00 ! ! , and Iho company hud not se
cured the lot. How the dilllcully will bo
bridged over Etill remains to be scon.
"There Is a Inmo eagle in ono of llio
cages at Hunscom Park , " said a doctor
the other duy to the "Odds und Ends"
man. "Ono of his legs Is broken , nud ho
must be constantly in grout pain. L sug
gest that the services of u physician bo
secured , ami that the leg be set or ampu
tated. "
Eastern follies and fashions gradually
lind their way westward. Tlio lutost im-
portulion from "Now Yuwk" is the
"chestnut bull. " This , us mav bo appar
ent from its name , is a small bell for the
purpose of calling attention fo u joke or
story which some fiend may bo in the act
of perpetrating. Instead of cull
ing out "chestnut , " the bore is
extinguished by u few sharp rings of Iho
bell which is attached to the vest
and operated by u smull gold cl'uin.
There arc quite a number of these "chest
nut bells" in Omaha. A Farnam street
Siweler is makinir u large expensive gong
ell , to bo worn just us u ehuteluine
watch is , for a prominent societv lady of
this city.
"Tho sport in Holland known as 'ccl
baiting , ' which was the cause of the re
cent riots in Amsterdam , reminds mo of
what I saw in Mexico , " remarked a trav
' In some parts of old Mexico the com
mon people have u game which Ihoy cull
'el gallo. ' A fine cock is selected ,
usually the best among the fowls and is
tied by the feet to a pole or tree some dis
tance from the ground. The players nro
all mounted upon swift horses , and ride
forward at a break-neck puce , each
striving to curry away the prize. As the
cock is securely tied to the pole , the unfortunate -
fortunate bird is usually torn in pieces bv
the eager riders , who value each piece as
an emblem of valor , worthy ot being laid
at the feet of some dark eyed maiden.
The Icmalc portion of the spectators en
joy the spectacle even more than the men ,
qiving expression to exclamations of de
light us they sec a brother or lover over
turn an adversary , in llie race , and se
cure a piece of the coveted prize. In
Holland they substitute an ccl for the
cock and boats in place of horses. "
The sale of the two lots on Juckson
street between Seventh andEighlh , which
are to bo used as the site of tlio now
freight depot to bo creeled by the Union
Pacific property , revives someinlcresting
reminiscences. These lots have been long
known as the "old Davis properly , " being
originally owned by Thos. Davis , fnlhcrof
Fred Davis , of the First National bank.
In 1851 was built thereon the first saw
mill ever operated in Nebraska. The es
tablishment was regarded ns a wonder
at first , being large and linoly equipped ,
according to the standard of those early
times. It had plenty to do in sawing out
timber for the residences and business
buildings which were then springing tip
all over the young territorial city. Part
of the time , it being the only mill in the
state , it run night and day to meet the
heavy demands pressed upon it.
An engine in the mill linally exploded
in 1857 or 1858 , blowing the building to
atoms. Mr. Davis happened to be aliout
the miil nt the time and wus blown
skyhigh. He received injuries which it
wus feared would prove tutul But ho
recovered , contrary to general expecta
tion. That wus the lust of the old saw

Productive Words of Wisdom
How to liny Itcftl Kstatc.
Yesterday morning a couple of BII : :
men In search of a site in which to in
vest u little of their earnings , called upon
A. R. Soucr , of the firm of Bedford &
Souer , real eslato brokers , 2l5 ! South
Fourteenth street. They intended before
making a purchase , to thoroughly can
vass the real estate situation , and the
substance of the first question propounded
to Mr. Souer ; wus
"Do yon really think the prospects of
Omaha are ns bright as they were a year
ago ? "
Yon really nsk mo a very strange
question foranOmuhan/'saidMr. Souur ,
but I must tell you candidly lhat 1 con
sider the prospects of Omaha us bright ,
if indued , they arc not brighter than they
were ono year ago. So much so , that I
consider investment in Omaha property
on n proper basis of value , bear In mind ,
as Iho best kind of an investment Wo
have not had u boom. I think it much
better that wo have not liutl one. Ono or
two of our local real e tale dealers liavo at-
templed lo .steal one , Lut they have
failed in the nttumpl , "
"What do you think about the packing
interests of the city ? "
"The stock yards and packing interests
arc bound to be a great tuctor in the
building up of this city. They will un
doubtedly do more than any other ono
interest to make Omuhu a great city.
These interests depend upon the west ,
and our growth in the fuluro will belike
like that of the past , It will depend upon
the west by which the stock interests arc
sustained. While Nebraska continues to
increase nud develop there is no doubt
about it that Omaha will share in tlio
increase and prosperity. And yet , I
must say that while the slock- yard inter
ests are of advantage to us , they arc , nt
the sumo time a great injury to some of
our most valuable residence property. "
"How is that ? "
"Well , you tuko lhat property lying
between the High School and Hunscomo
park. That is certainly among the most
desirable and most valuable for
residence property in town. Thut
will sutler in llio iicur future
from the smells which are sure to come
from the stock yards as they increase in
size , and from the packing and slaughter
ing and rendering houses which arc sure
to surround them. All of these arc
stcnch-crcaling industries , and the odors
from them arc bound in bo wafted in the
direction of the property I have men
tioned , making it largely undesirable for
Iho purposes for winch , both accident and
nature qualified it , aud in live yours
cuusc , it t < > sell for less money than it docs
at the present timo. While this is taking
place , other purls of Omaha not readied
lv thuso stenches will increase in value
many limes. "
"In which part of the city , then , liavo
you the greatest confidence ? "
l'\\ ell , I will say this , that the west and
north parts of the city will increase most
rapidly. By the west side , 1 mean that
part north of Farnam. By the north ,
1 jncludo the whole of the
city in that direction of the compass , ex
cepting no part of it' ' 1'ho Kount/o tract
up there will , no doubtan.a-fow ; vuara bo
a line residence trupt , although at pres
cut it is not in the market. The south
easterly part will also build up rapidly
because it has some of thd beautiful hills
and views imaginable , just such us u man
would desire on which to locate a homo
for both his lifetime and posterity. All
these parts uro fur removed from the
evil of stench to which I hnvc referred.
Besides , the viaduct on Eleventh street
will make it readily accessible and safe to
reach. These fuels and its nearness to
town will make it especially desirable for
llie retired homes of active business
men. "
"How is Bedford Place doing ? "
"It is selling us rapidly ns we could
wish. Over ono-hnlf of it has already
boon disposed of during the past
three months. If wo had boomed
nnd pushed it ns other additions have
been boomed and pushed , it would Jong
since have been sold. But wo liuvo not
been anxious to sell it. because every day
it increases in value and is inoro in de
mand. The Bolt line is now running to
Bedford place , und the lurgo machine
shops and foundry are in operation , giv
ing employment to a largo force of hon
est , industrious nnd successful mechan
ics. A number of houses nro now being
built there , und just us fust as they are
completed . , they arc eagerly occupied by
thrifty people. If a hundred new houses
should bo built there , there would not bo
a vacant ono there for u day. "
"Why do you not advertise it and your
selves more ? "
"Woll , 1 must say that wo liuvo not
been advertising very much. \ \ hilo wo
fully appreciate the value of printers' ink ,
wo have felt lhat it was impossible lo
compote in that line with some of the
loud advertisers of this city , and still
keep with the requirements of thn truth.
For Instance , wo have certain property
which is just ono and a quarter miles
from the postollico. Other local dealers
have property also in tlio same direction
but about a mile farther from the post-
ollico On reading their advertisements ,
wo find that their Jots uro located only
ono mile from Iho center of the city , and
sometimes they ulnim it to bo oven less.
Now it isdilllcult for us to satisfactorily
locuto our property in an advertisement
unless wo wish to stulo thut it is located
beyond property so far distant from ours.
If wo wore to state that it was so much
nearer than Iho oilier properly advertised
we would liavo to locate it within
llio postofllco. Now , wo consider
this all wrong. Omaha is a wonderful
city and is gelling belter every week ,
und if wo properly udvortiso the city nnd
our business , showing tilings as they
really exist , wo can all do sumciont busi
ness. "
"What do think of
you acre prop
erty i"
"I think some of tint aero property ,
distant from the court house four or live
miles , is a poor investment. In fact , wo
refuse to handle it. All property within
the present city limits and that immedi
ately adjacent is a paying investment at
tlio present prices , But lots which nro
being sold ut the southwest imrt of the
county , nwuy beyond tlio Catno'ic ' como-
tury , needs more than the ordinary
growth of Omaha to make it good prop
erty. In fact , it needs something mirac
ulous to bring it up towhat is claimed
for it. If you wanted to make
money by property in Omaha or ns ncnr
to Omnliu as your money wijl permit.
But don't go too far in the country.
Omaha is bound to bo n great city , but
she can't cover the whole earth , young
men. No city will over grow large
enough to do thut. "
Edward Hamilton has brought suit in

A Sketch of It.
John A4 1'reyliau , the enterprising

houses and various places in llio city
where it is used. All waste from the
bottling department is carried olV by
moans of pipes connected with the sewer

in the rear part of the floor is the
cigar vault , which is almost surrounded
by the mammoth lee house , which begins -
gins on this floor and extends

As a general thing the. avant couners
d'hote , or in plain Anglo Saxon , the
hotclrunncrs arc muchubused individuals.
Their worth to the. community is not
properly , appreciated , and instead of
roses they generally receive thorns from
both travelers and pcrmauents. Omaha
is particularly proud of its hotel runners.
They are a cosmopolitan crowd , and rep
resent nearly every nation the sun shines
on. Above all , they arc musical , and it
is fun to watch the green eyed man from
Cincinnati gnash his teeth when the
swcut sounding notes of the hotel run-
ncr's choir greet the arrivals on the in
coming trains. There they stand , a de
mure looking group , along the iron rail-
ins , with only the presence of a fair con
tralto and soprano to present a. living pic
ture of the old Sabbath singers of the lit
tle cross-road church in eastern _ child
hood hours. So natural indeed is the
similarity , that one can even sec the de
sire lor'scrmontimo depicted on the
countenances of the singers when qn ad
journment outside can bo indulged in.
"Can field , " vocalizes the falsetto ,
and the passing throng are all attention.
The in-coming base ball player thinks at
once that ho is in u city whore his profes
sion is recognized , and immediately he
feels at homo.
"Pux-ton" is then sounded in contra
puntal style and every cleric within the
range of the baritone's voice imagines
ho is greeted with ft welcome of peace.
"Mil-lard" sweetly sings the tenor , and
no titled foreigner entering the city's
gates fails to recogni/.o the salutation ,
and is glad to be in a city where "mi
lord" is appreciated.
So it is with nil the difl'urcnt voices.
Each bus its special attraction for some
of the many , who come and go through
the depot. It remains for the Scnagain-
bian basso profnndo to take the cake.
Ho sings the great attractions of the
Windsor , and wlion his luryux is lubri
cated with two or three beers , ho can
easily bo heard in Council BluHs , if the
air is rarificd. In lact , ho has a stand
ing call now to the protc-sorMiin of vocal
music in the deaf anil dumb asylum.
Still there are people with savage cars
who do not appreciate this imprisurio.
The other day ho was grossly insulted ,
just like his friend of the Co/.zins was
the day before
Didn't ' hoar about the latfcr ? No ?
Strange , passing strange. Why. there
wasa rural couple coming up the platform
walk with no other puopl.s in
eight. In fact , all the members
ot the choir had not yet reported. "Co/-
/ins" very politely said tlio representa
tive of that hostelry. The man looked
daggers at tlio .singer , and with rasping
voice said "I don't know as it's any of
your business whether wo are are cousins
or not. Wo'ro going to got married , any
way , as soon us u hfiuiro can bo found. "
But lo return to the basso. It was Sat
urday evening. Travelers from the east
were coming in throngs through the do-
iot , The choir opened its vocal batteries.
High above- the surrounding voices
sounded the basso. It was pay day , and
10 hud some extra lubrication. "Wind
ser , " struck the fading twilight air. and
traveled dead-head on the air ( Cobles
the light , far oil in the balmy pre
cincts of llio I'olluwuuuo bottoms.
"Wind-sor. " "Wimi-sor" cumo in regu
lar succcb'ion , but alas the oven , harmo
nious tenor of the lullaby was broken in
the rudest manner imaginable. There
was u Hibernian from Iowa on the mov
ing audience. The words of the singer
htruck him struck him so forcibly that
ho had to sling in a discord of words :
"Wind-sor ! Wind ! is it ? 1'uix you
nuden't bo tollin' us. Wo know yon
liuvo wind , and plenty of it. "
The basso forgot himself under this
villainous attack , and throwing aside his
dignity ho descended from the private
lolc of musical superiority to tho-lifth-
tiur-buok-oMho-front pit row of common
"G'ull'from hoah , Irish ! " said ho rc-
The shamrock echo was , "Ho an , yon

harmony invay , but the music of the day
was ended , and the btar KUigcrs , llko

the operalio ttajro , took beer when they
could not get bouquets. Oh yes , the
thrushes , the linnets , and the canaries of
