new jeir by start'iig on a trip of Inspectlcn
over the ninKi line and branch lines ot tlio
"Overland lUulc. "
It was jusi 8 30 o'clock this mottling when
a special tra.ii , conBlstlug of n locomotive
and thrco private ccrs , pulled out x > f the

WILL INSPECT IT THOROUGHLY
The president's party Is out for a thor
ough trip of Inspection of the entire Union
Pacific road. Most , 01 the inspecting will b
done by dalight , iho parts ol the ro..d being
covered at night Hint going vest being
scheduled to be gone over In dajllghl coming

line lhat will receive tli attention ot the
now president will be tli * Omaha & Repub
lican Valley branch , and that will be gone
over today. Aft'r that cath brunch will betaken
taken In the .order that it conns , On tlio
going trip It is not expected thni any
bursts of speed will be made , but most of
the men along the toad are looking for some
record-breaking runs uffr Iho pait } starts
ca t from Ogdcn Although this will be
Mr Hurt B first trip ever the Union Pacific
as its chief executive , he Is bald to btvco
fimillai with the "Oveiland Route" It is
well knov n that when he formerly lived In
Omaha , prloi to August. 1S9C , ho frciiuentlv
went o\ci the Union PaUHc from Omaha to
Cheyenne When ho went out to the Wo
mlng divisions of Ihe ElUhorn road , of which
ho was geneially maiiag r , he Invarlabl }
went from here to Cheyenne over the Union
Pacific , lu preference to using Iho Klkhorn ,
and Is , therefore , supposed to h ver } famil
lar with the properly ot which he Is about
to assume charge.
I3eforo the train pulled out a member of
the official part } In reply to a question paid
"To all Intents and purposes , Mr Durt Is
now nrEBldL'iit of the road , and is lust KOiiiK
out to get acquainted with the line. No one
knows when the receivership will be forimll }
tcimlnated , and the reeelveus discharged
Mr. Mink says thit ho thinks It will be
about February 1 , and thirty das Is pretty
close to the time1 that It will take lo finish
up Ihe worklucldeiilal lo Ihe Iransfei. No
ono knows an ) thing about the future
make-up of the official family , but It Is not
expected that there will be any Immcdlat"
changes In any of the departments. "

New Year's day was quietly celebrated
In local railway circles. The hcadquirtcrs
of the Union Pacific , the U. & M. and the
Kllchorn had their main entrances closed ,

throughout the morning 'to ' let a few of the

offices A few callers , mostly for the pur
pose of securing thcii transportation for the
joar 1SOS , were scan about the guieial man
agers' ofllces , but olicrvv'&o there was
scarcclj an ) activity.
The clt ) ticket olllccs were open between
the liouifi of < J a. m. and 12 m , though not
enough tickets , even at the previlllng re
duced rates , were sold to Justify the opsnlng
of the 'ticket ' cases. The few morning hours
llut they were In their ofllces save the

their monthly sales accounts , and In most
cases thcso made a satisfactory showing

the month of December has shown a gratlf-
Ing Increase over that of Dcemher 1890
During the first part of the month business
was very slack , but the Increase since De

The action of Postmaster General Gary In
deciding to Issue a series of special posugc
stamps In honor of the Transmlsfiissippl anl
Intcrnntlon.ll Exposition has raised an In
dignant protest from 80111 ? stamp collectors ,
who soIn this action of Ihe department
nothing but a prospective raid on their
pockctbooks They are formulating prolcsts
to the I'ostodice department , In which the1)
Insist that the Idea nlioulil b ? abandoned
These collectors all use the sime argument
against the Issue of tpeclal stamps by the
United Stales government. The following
copy of a letter SMI ! 'n the postmaster gen
eral by a Chicago dealer * In stamps shows the
argument used by them :
I'ostmnBlcr General Gary : Dear Sir I
wish to register u piotcsl njrnlnst Ihe 1'suo
of special commcmornllvo stamps for Die
Omnlm exposition , and respectfully urge
that the Idea or tlulr Issue be reconsidered
and abandoned. Since the Issue of the Co
lumbian set In 1S9J , or more sit Icily In Ihe
last few ye.us , iho citslom of emitting spe-
( lul stamps lo cclebrale occasions of vary
ing national Importance has bo > n abused ,
especially by minor countilcs that cons'der
such Issues primarily us u convcnlenl means
I'aroiigh which to replenish governmental
exchequers b > the silo of stamps to phila
telists , that tiia commemorative Issues have
lost all charm nnd novelty lo Ihe phllalellsl
CT stamp collector. Rather , the philatelist
now views speclil , unnecessary Issues with
dlsfav or and Impatience.
Hv ie ortlng to tlio hackneyed plan of
providing special stamps for ths Omaha ox-
poslllon , jou will unwillingly disquiet stamp
collectors , und. In conseauc'ticc exercise a
sinister effect on the stamp business.
The Department of Publicity and Promo
tion ot the expo-iiilon , through which the
special stamp Issue was secured , Manager
Kosovvater havlnu urged the matter with
i the nostmastor ceneral and \arloUs other
olllclals and congicEsmcn when In Washing
ton recently , Is not greatly alarmed about
Hie efforts being made by the ttamp col
lectors to ward oft what they regard as a
deep laid plot to get Into their pockotboolcs
Th's ' special stamp Issue Is regarded as ono
ot the ipost effective moves made by tno
federal government so far as the exposition Is
concerned It fixes moro dimly In the pub
lic mind the Importance of the exposition
ES a national an 1 International affair , and
the widespread effect on the exposition of
the action of the Postofllce department Is

The Ice carnival concession at the exposi

been sold by Morris & Love to Thomas
Srtobe of this city. The negotiations for this
doil have been in progress for several days
and were completed late yesterday afternoon
when the papers were signed and Mr Swobo
took formal possession at mldnlgnt.
"I saw that this concession was a big
thing , " said Mr. Swobe , this morning , in
speaking of his new business deal , "and 1
have been considering for some time howit
( ould be secured. The opportunity presented
Itself a few dajs ago and I took advantage
of It 1 have looked Into the details suf

left undone to make It a success In every
respect The arrangements made by Morris
& , I.OVP for the ice carnival , the curling and
toboggan clubs and all the other amusement
leaiures , win DO carried out and I am now
working on an elaborate plan which will
eclipse anthing which has been proposed in
tlio way of entertainment. The imttei is not
In shape to make public at this time but It
will be ready for full announcement in the
Sunday papers of January 9
The punlic can ie t as > sure3 , " continued
Mr. Swobe , "that the Ice carnival is gO'lg to

Omaha did not have the best kind o-t
weather during the jcar Just past. In fact ,
the vvather of 1S97 was of a particularly
iiaut } kind , since It tame In chunks and
In Iho first place It was a prcttj hot jear
The average normal temp rature during the
> ears In which the local weather office has
bnn In existence has been a little less thin
IP degrees. The mean temperature of IS'J ?
was more than a degree above this average ,
being about Bl degrees The most dlsagrfe-
ahle parl of the weather , however , was found
In the sudden changes of temperature. One
day It would ho way up In the hundreds
and thni again It would drop down twcnt }
and thirty degrees This continued through
the summer and fall. In the early months of
the fall , particularly , a man could hardly
keep cool in hU shirt sleeves on ono day and
on the next he would llml an overtoil com
The highest tempornlure was In July , the
mean tempeiaturc of which mcnth was 79
degrees The hottest davas July 31 , when
the mercury humped Itself up to 102 which ,
however , was four degrees less than the rec
ord , 100 degrees , In lSfl4. The coldest month
of the } car was January , which had an aver
age mean temperature of 21 degrees The
coldest Jay was Januar } 23 , when the mer
cury slumped to 13 degrees below , but this
again was far below the record The coldest
day on record occurred some jears back ,
when the mark of 3.2 degrees below ? ere was
reached. The range of temperature In 1S17
was , consqucnfl } 115 degrees Thlrt-tlght
d.is of the jear registered above 90 deg-t.cs.
'he jear all around however , was hotter
ban 1S1G for In that year there wcrr only
.ftcen . days when the mercur } went higher
lian ! )0 ) degrees and the highest mark touched
vas 96 degrees above zero. \
The } ear was a dry } ear , although It was
lol generally cxnstdcied such by the public
The precipitation was only 2139 Inches ,
vhlch la 1039 Inches below the average.
Most of tli's rain fell during the grain sen-
son , so that the crops were not affected by
ho deficiency. The greai cst rainfall In any
consecutive tw nt-foui hours occurred on
\prll 22 and 21 , when 1.-I7 Inches fell. The
} cor did Itself proud in the enow line , how
ever. In the twelve months 32 9 inches loll ,
which Is moro than double the fall In 1SOG |
ind the fall In 1893. The blggeht part ot
hts snowfall oame in December , when 170
m.hc.3 of It would have b-cn piled up hid
t fallen at the same time. Precipitation
n measurable quantities fell on 107 das
of the } eai. Thunderstorms occurred on
thirt-seven das. Dining the } cai there
were 141 clear das , 12D paitly cloudy das
and nlnct-five cloudy das
The highest wind velocity was reached on
July 9 , when a zephyr fiom the southwest
ravelled at the rate ot forty-three miles an
lour. The prevalllug direction ot the wind
luring the } ear was southeast.
The Weather bureau's local office Is now
cqu i pcd with all kinds of practicable weather
apparatus In existence There Is n self-
recording thermograih , which gives a con-
Inuous record of the temperature ; a self-
recording rain gauge , which registers the
rainfall and the rate every minute ; an clcc-
"ic self-recording Instrument which tells
: he w'tid ' velocity and the direction ; a ma-
: hine giving a continuous record of the
: arometric pressure , a photographic sunshine
machine and minor acoaratus.
