Tostovln Talks About Capacity and
Sewer Oas.
Doings In the District Court Work of
the Pavers Hllvcr Wedding
Other Doings In the City
Broadway Hewer All night.
Since the injunction on the Pacific
house was grunted to prevent the open
ing of the old bower , there lion been con
siderable curiosity expressed to know
whether the Broadway sewer is capable
of doing its work or whether it is too
small , us claimed by Rome interested
parties , also whether it bus a good and
sullicicnt outlet. Yesterday afternoon
City Engineer Tostcrin was approached
by a UKK representative , who briefly
stated the cube and solicited his opinion
concerning it. "Well , " said ho , "you
don't need to n k mo in regard to it.
Just go down to the Indian creek bridge
on Broadway where the bower empties
and see for yourself whether it is filled
to its full capacity. Why , that bower
has never had ono twentieth of the
work it is capable of doing. It only has
Glen und Park avenues nnd part of
Broadway to carry , whereas it was
built to lake all of upper Broadway and
the northeastern part of the city. This
part has never been raised to grade , BO
it can't be concerted. I don't claim
that the sewer is well built , as there are
home sinks in it that will always
have , say six or eight inches
of a deposit. There is one ut the man
hole ut the corner of Main street. "
"But what about the bower gas , that
some parties cliiim , prevents them from
using the sewer ? "
"Why , if they want to live off of sewer
gas , of courbo they can do it. * If they
don't have a trap and a ventilator , how
can they expect anything else ? There
snomuc ' a Iran iu.Jhp. ! ! "EjjyyU
ventilator running up the outside ot the
building from below the trap. Fixed in
tliut way there can bo no trouble from
gas. The city jail is now fitted in that
manner , and there is no trouble. The
sewer isn't at fault. It ought to bo
flushed every week , and the council
pushed a resolution last night to that
cITect. The lire department don't like
the job and have tried to avoid it , but it
will have to bo done hereafter. It is
something that shouldn't bo put off for
longer than a week at a time. Give it
a fair show and there will be no trouble.
I tell you , some folks arc better politic
ians than sewer builders. "

details of the larceny bo rapidly that
the judge could hardly stop him long
enough to caution him about tolling too
much , until the price of the coat was
known. Ho informed the court , that if
the coat was not worth $20 , ho would
plead guilty of petit larceny , but if
worth moro than that , ho was not
guilty and didn't know anything about
the case. Ho was told that his board
was paid for thirty days. Lon Berry
and Andrew Todd , two black dinmonds ,
were the other victims , and they wore

The time for opening the now bridge for
wagons and pedestrians is very uncertain.
In all probability it will bo closed until next
spring. It was the Intention of the Union
Pacific ofllcinls to have had it in full opera
tion bcforo this time , but n delay has been
decided Upon from the fact that the approaches
preaches are not of sufllcicnt durability on
the Iowa sldo , and the company is dissatis-

Vice President Potter , In speaking of lt _
estcrday , said : "Tho bridge was turned'
vcr to our chief engineer last Thursday as
ompleto. We had intended to throw it
pen to the public at once , but an cxamlna-
hcs showed that It would be folly so to do.
There is a dirt road constructed across the
lottom on the Iowa side , and in rainy
veathcr a team could never cross It. A great
cal of money must be expended there before
i good road can be had. On tuts side
here must bo moro legislation to provide for
ho opening of more streets to the bridge.
Vo cannot go ahead until these two things
are attended to. "

Review of the Week' * Ilufilness.
Notwithstanding the fact that nearly every
business has been crippled during the past
week by the excitement which always nt-
tends elections , the investments In real estate
have been greatly Increased and shows that
the predictions of the BEE of thrco weeks
ngo nro being verified. It was then stated
that there was every evidence mnnlfest that
the realty market would rapidly improve.
Last week the deals In real csta were
nearly 130,000 in excess of the previous week.
This week's deals , although there wore only
five dnys In which deeds could be filed , shows
nn Increase of $85,348. This Is most gratify
ing and shows that the confidence ) in Oinaha
dirt is on the increase. Several investments
were made by eastern parties during the
week nnd it is rumored that n $200,000 deal Is
almost completed with one of them. The
projected munufuctortcs mentioned last week

The addition of Sa % per cent is made to

nt least 40 per cent should bo nddcd to the
values given by the nnplicants for permits.
Thirty-three and a third per cent , however.
s In the opinion of u largo majority of
: ho architects a fair estimate. Thus it will
30 seen that the value of buildings erected
nnd in the course of construction In the city
of Omnha for the past ten months , is over
P7,500,000. By the end of the { year there is
the best of reasons to supposo'thatit ' will ap
proximate $ .9,000,000. This Is an unprece
dented increase in the history of i American
cities. These figures will show conclusively
to the world that Omaha Is fust taking the
lead over nil her competitors and ere long she
will outrank them ull as to population ,
wealth , manufacturers and general business.
These figures do not include the operations
In South Omahn. The vast packing houses
and hundreds of business blocks and private
residences built there during the present
year will run up Into the millions , but as no

time before a correct statement can bo made.

Borrowers Have Less Difficulty in Get
ting Money From Banks.
CHICAGO , Nov. 12. [ Special Telegram to
the Bnn. ] There were no important changes
to note In local financial affairs during the
past week. Bankers are apparently In a
comfortable condition and well supplied with
loanable funds. No particular urgency has
prevailed for loans , nnd the market , In a gen
eral way , may be regarded as easier. Bor
rowers , when able to present undoubted se
curity , experienced no particular difficulty In
obtaining all the money required. Bank of
ficials generally insist on wide and safe mar
gins ; sufficiently largo to guard against nuy
serious loss in case of sudden changes
in the market. Applications from spec
ulators in grain and provisions for accom
modations were light , as the volume
of business is not so largo
but what it can bo protected by
private means. The demand from the pack
ing interest for financial assistance has not
developed ns stocks nnd provisions were
light at the opening of the packing season
and they hnvo been enabled to dispose of
their manufacture readily up to date , so that
no accumulation has tnken placo. It Is un
derstood that considerable money is being
forwarded to the interior for the purpose of
buying and storing small grain and for crib
bing corn , but these funds nro largely from
private parties. Wholesale merchants still
present considerable paper for discount ,
mainly duo to slow collections In some sec
tions of the west. Rates of interest are reported
ported steady at C@7 per cent for call nnd OX
@ 8 per cent for time loans , with the bulk of
the paper accepted nt G > @ 7 per ceut. Out
side paper bccuvcd by undoubted collaterals
commands 7@8 per cent. Some money is
offered on the street at a slight premium on
bank rates.
Money in eastern financial centers Is not
ns close as reported some time ago , nnd bor
rowers succeed In obtaining bank favors
readily , with rates of Interest ranging at 5@
7 per cent. Advices from abroad also indi
cate an easier feeling In that quarter , with
no change to note in discount rates. The
balances of the leading banks show increased
deposits. |
New York exchange was inclined to quiet
ness during the past week. Offerings were
not very largo , and the demands were com
paratively light. Sales were made at 2. > ( iJ40o
discount per ( 1,000 between banks , und the
market closed steady nt 25il3te ( ( ,
Foreign exchange was In only moderate re
quest and the offerings were fair. There was
no particular change to note in rates. Ship
pers' blxty-dny documentary bills on London
sold at fi.80@4.80U and closed quiet at
- .
The New York stock markct.cxliiblted con
siderable activity , and fluctuations In prices
were confined within a narrower range than
during the week previous. Earnings of the
leading railroads continue to she wan Increase
over last year's returns and th ? o Is appar
ently less disposition to sell stocks , and nt
tne same time there Is not much inclination to
purchase the bulk of the trading being
credited to "room traders , " on small losses or
profits. It Is claimed that the "short" In
terest Is moderately large , and that the dally
purchases to cover contracts were sufficient
to maintain prices. Wall street operators
were n little more disposed to sell at the
recent advance. Prices on the whole range
have exhibited little t-hango some special
ties showing slight advances and others ruling
Outside of the corn and provision markets
there has been no particular activity in the
produce markets. Trading In these articles
was stimulated somewhat by some local nnd
outsldo features , but there was apparently no
Inducements offered to speculators to enlarge
their o | > cratlons In other articles. The re
ceipts of grain were moderately largo , while
the shipments were liberal , being encouraged
to some extent by the reduction In lake
frclghti ) . Advices from foreign markets
were a little moro encouraging to sellers.
Still the changes In prices were not marked.

good business and no complaints were made
in that quarter. Prices were slightly ad
vanced on all the leading articles , and the
market closed rather firm. The export
movement was moderate and trade with do
mestic markets was fairly active. Stocks of
grain are gradually enlarging , with the ex
ception of corn and barley , and the supplies of
provisions are not very large , and accumulat
ing slowly. Packing in the west is progres
sing very favorably , and the returns , so far
this season , show an Increase over those of
lust season.
Carlisle's Contested Scat.
WASHINGTON , Nov. 12. [ Special Telegram
to the BEE.J General J. Gale Sypher , at
torney for George H. Tuoebo , contestant
against ex-Speaker Carlisle , says , referring
to the statement made by Carlisle that ho
had heard that Randall was assisting Tlioebe
in his contest : "If Carlisle made such an
assertion I don't believe ho bus any informa
tion warranting him In making it. Neither
Thoebo nor any of his friends have had any
communication with Randall on the subject.
1 am prepared to show how , where and by
whom the legal result of the election In the
district was falsified and a fraudulent major
ity returned for Carlisle. I invited him to
meet mo in the district for the purpose of
confuting these proofs in a legal form , but ho
declined. Carlisle knows that ho was not
legally elected member of the Fiftieth con
gress , and a large number of reputable gen
tlemen in his district also know the fact and
are willing to testify to It. "
Lord "Warrlck ChnrKcn n Sliilllns fern
n View of His Castle.
Now York World : Warwick castle ,
which is ono of the great feudal castles
of England , afford n very handsome rev
enue to its present occupant , the Earl
of Warwick , through shilling admis
sions being charged to view all except
the private living apartments. Up to
within a few years ago there was no ad
mission fee. Then the butler and the
housekeeper were permitted to show
people through certain hours of the
day , and they wore permitted to pocket
the fees paid them. The result was
that these two people accumulated a
fortune during their twenty years' ser
vice , and have now setup as magnates
of county kitchen circles. To quote the
language of ono of their rural ndmtrora ,
they have "an 'ouso of theirn hewn
nearly as big as the cahrslo , and moro
'orses nnd carriages as the h'earl Mm-
self. " The present earl now takes this
revenue to himself.
At the porter's lodge you arc told
that tickets can bo bought at the" little
humble house in the feudal row , under
the lofty battlements in the most aristo
cratic abode of ono of the greatest
peers of the realm. You visit this house
and there your money is taken through
a little wicket , and In exchange you are
given n ticket which entitles you to bo
shown through the castlo. Commis
sioners nro on fluty there and they dis
play the treasures and beauties of the
place with the same bubjncfcs-liko
method and manner of people in charge
of any of the show places in London.
The money deposited by the visitor
finds its way to n bank to the carl's
credit , affording him at the present
time a clear net income of fully $15,000 a
