The wonderful growth of Omaha is at-
racting attention all over the country ,

milt in all parts of the city , the miles ol
new street rail ways , the immense amount
) f paving going forward , they wonder
low it is possible for any ono to think
hat Omaha's real estate boom is at an
end. Now is tlio time to make pur
chases. Sixty days from now , when him-
I re els of thousands of dollars of eastern
capital has been invested in Omaha prop

ways full , so much so that frequently
walking lias to bu resorted to to roach

people whowish to take an airing be

If South Omaha was a little further
away from Omaha she 'would be our
rival , but as it is it forms a part ot our
great city and nil the improvements and
buildings in South Omaha adds to our
own prosperity and enhances the value of
every piece of property m Omaha. Our
citizens cannot realize t the immense
amount of work going on in South
Omaha ; go down there and see packinz
houses , storage warehouses , stores , dwel
lings , etc. , being built on every hand
over 1.000 men and 200 teams are cm-
ployed grading streets. It'will pay any
one that has not visited the "packing

and take a look , try it nnd when you
see what a city South Omaha
is to-day , imagin if you can , what it will
bo two years hence. Then get a plat
showing the unsold lots with prices , and
compare with the prices of lots in any

Dr. II. E. Palmer from Litchlield ,
Conn. , has been in.tho city several weeks ,
and has decided to locate here. Ho
flunks Omaha is the best city of its size
in the United States. Ho says he had
heard a great deal about Omaha and ex
pected to see a lively city , but ho was
amazed to find such an immense amount
of building , and other improvements
going forward , when all the eastern
cities have been comparatively quiet the
past season. Ho thinks Omaha will have
a population of 500,000 in ten years.

The Council Mnkes a Sweep of tha
City Hall Contract.
The city council held n special session
last night , and , forming itself into a com
mittee of the whole , decided to recom
mend to the council , at its regular session
next Tuesday night , the rojuetion of all
bids for the erection of the new city hall.
The commktcc proceeded to business
with Alderman Lowry in the chair , and
before the committee had been in session-
fifteen minutes the meeting developed1
into a "go-as-you-please" talking match
between Contractor Ed Bronnan and Mr.
Balcombe , of the board of public works ,
and City Engineer Tillson. The ontiro'
trouble grow out of. the fact that Mr.
Brennan is using limestone in the super
structure when the contract called for
Colorado .sandstone. After the objection
able material had been put in place En
gineer Tillson and Mr. Balcombo went
out oa a tour of inspection , and , seeing ;
the limestone in the foundation , de
sired to know from Mr. Brennan
where lie got ills authority ,
to substitute that stone for Colorado sand
stono. Mr. Brennan euvo Mr. Meyers ,
the architect of the building , as his au
thority , and stated that the council had
been apprised of the fact. This was de
nied by * several of the councilmen , and
the matter brought to tlui attention of
the committee on public buildings and
property. As the matter stands now ,
it is claimed by the city engineer , it
would bo dangerous to place a building
erected after the plans of Mr. Meyers , on
the sub-structure now being erected by
Mr. Brennan.
Things were growing amusing last
night wlion President Bechel moved that
the committee rise and report to the
council as stated above. This will ne
cessitate the advertising for new bids
for the main structure and Contractor
Brennan in all probability will take the
matter into court.
