Omaha Made an Immediate Port of

An Immediate Port.
Two years ago Senator Mnntlcrson en
deavored to have Omnlmmndowliat Is known
In the commercial world ni an Imtnedtnto
transinrtntloh ) ciistntim port. This Is n privi
lege which New York , Chicago , nnd other
lartra cities now enjoy. Ho secured the pass-
ngo of a bill to this effect , but it was Illt-d by
Uio veto ol the president.
The present session ho nfrnln brought the
matter up , and yesterday was notified by
the treasury department that Omaha had
been created a port of the kind mentioned
nbovo. This action justitlcd the senator in
the bollof that the president had no Jurisdic
tion in the mutter la which ho had issued his
veto.Tho result of the action of the treasury de
partment will ctmblo all the Roods imported
to this country by Omaha merchants to como
to this city Immediately , without breaking of
bulk or delay of four or llvo weeks or more ,
Btich ns has been the case hereto fore , lie-
sides , It will prevent the breaking nnd
loss of goods which has frequently been
sustained. The goods will bo inspected hereupon
upon arrival. This will require a corps of
Inspectors , jwsslbly four or live in number. It
will also enable goods to bo kept
In bond until they are required , tints doing
nwav with the necessity of paying the duty
on all at the same time , and enabling mer
chants to pay it only when they tuko their
goods out of bond.
One firm hero has paid on an nvcrago
120,000 for custom duties and this year ex
pects to pay at least $ I0,000 ! , while Importing
11 rins hero Irnvo run the grand amount up
much higher.
Mr. Frost Was Misquoted.
The Unu published an Interview with Mr.
Leo Frost yesterday , the subject of which
was the demands of the bricklayers ns to
wages for the coming season. Mr. Frost was
not only misunderstood and misquoted , but a
typographical error was added , making him
the apparent authority of a statement
_ wholly wrong. It was said that Mr. Frost
stated that the bricklayers only wanted $1.00
per day of eight hours. It should have been
stated that they wanted $4.50 for eight hours'
work , ns per their written demands. The
error was n most unfortunate ono inasmuch
ns it docs Mr. Frost a great injustice.
In conversation with a boss brick-mason this
morning it wus learned tnat If Mr. Frost had
made any such statement ho would bo cen
sured by his fellow craftsmen. The gcntlo-
man further stated that ho was sure Unit Mr.
Frost had bccn , misquoted , us lie was always
n prominent and conscientious worker for the
union. It is hoped that this correction will
BCttlo all differences.
, On next Wednesday afternoon thcro will
bo a meeting.of the Urick Contractors' asso-
elation at : ) p. in. In the evening tliero will
be a meeting of the Urick Manufacturers' as
sociation. Both of thcso meetings will take
place in room 43 ! ) , Paxton buildiutr , when It is
expected Mr. Armstrong's report will bo rend
nnd possibly an ultimatum bo reached as re
gards the stand that will 'bo taken by the
The master plumbers hnvo decided to here
after accept no contracts , in largo jobs , cx-
, copt from the actual owners of the buildings
In which the work is to bo done. The reason
assigned for this move is that they hnvo heretofore
toforo been compelled to accept contracts
from carpenters and bricklayers who have
given bids upon an entire structure. So'mo-
times these bldsv especially for plumbing
when made by inexperienced people , have
juecn inadequate for the work , anil as
n consequence the plumber < i ccpting
the contract , has frequently done
so at his cost. The stand now
taken by the plumbers , that of dealing only
with the owners of the Job , it is thought will
remedy this defect.
A boss painter told a BEE reporter yester
day that the members of his craft were
now discussing the same move , and would
probably arrive at the same conclusion that
the boss plumbers had , ns mentioned nbovo.
The United State * Court.
A bill for foreclosure of a mortgage wns

represented to plaintiff that ho could secure
for him the south half of lot i ) , and the north
hallpf lot W-ln said block. To induce plain-
. < --iti f to purchase said property , pretended to
show liiniJUo same , but instead , with intent
to * cheat and defraud plaintiff , pointed out

the ono plaintiff was looking
ut. Plaintiff charges thnt defendant
knowingly nnd willfully pointed out the
wrong property in order to induce plalntifl
to purchase the property originally described ,
Plaintiff , relying upon representations ol
dofcndent , closed the deal nnd did not ills-
cover that ho had been cheated until borne

ence nnd ono from the Third

will bo between 4300 and $30 ! ) .

Although it is a little early to talk about spring goods , yet in some
departments new goods are already in demand. Our Hat department
bias for the past few days been quite active , and our spring trade in
this line promises tobethe biggest we ever had. We have made am
ple preparations for it , have enlarged this department considerably ,
and have put in a stock of hats unequalled for variety and styles. We
propose to make this department a leading feature of our business.1
Those who bought hats of us last season know that we sold them for
ibout one half the prices other houses charge. We intend to do still
better this season. We do not carry any cotton or so-called wool hats.
We only keer > good qualities of fur hats such as we can warrant will
give entire satisfaction to the wearer , with every hat sold in our es
tablishment goes a guarantee , and our guarantee means that if any
imperfection or damage is found in a hat , we take it back and give
either a new hat or return the money.
As our opening bargain for the seaspn we have placed on sale ail
elegant line of cassimere hats , made in the latest shapes , at one dollar.
These hats cannot be duplicated elsewhere for less than $2.50. At the
price of one dollar they are the most astounding bargain ever offered in
this or any other city. Finer grades of cassimere hats at $1.40 , $1.75
and $2-25. Our very finest hats at $3.25 are equal to the best makes
in this country or imported.
We have added this season a large line of soft hats , and also a
assortment for boys.
All goods marked in plain figures and at strictly one price.
