Western Railroads Are Ready to Restore

Passenger rates between Omaha and Chicago
cage and between Omaha nnd the northern
Pacific coast points are to bo advanced
within the next two weeks. The advance Is
the result expected from the settlement of
the rate war between the American trans
continental lines , on the one hand , and the
Canadian Pacific on the other.
A meeting has been called for Thursday
of this week In Now York City. The details
of the restoration of the pasesngcr rates
will bo fixed upon at this meeting. ID has
been decided already , however , to advance
the rate between Omaha and
Chicago , in each direction , on
Wednesday , September 21. The cut
rate of $9.23 , which has been In effect for
Kovcral weeks , will bo withdrawn , and the
regular rate of $12.75 substituted. No notice
of the withdrawal of the cut rate of $7.75 in
effect from Kansas City to Chicago has been
given out as yet.
The standard rate of $11.CO between Chicago
cage and St. Paul will on the sarao date dis
place the cut rate of $ S now offered by the
railroads. The rate situation between these
two cities is worse than anywhere else In
the west. Tickets are sold In the brokers'
offices for $2.60 , and a very small percentage
of them are believed to bo purchased from
travelers. How the competing lines hope to
restore regular rates Is a matter not given
out for publication. A secret meeting of the
Chlcago-St. Paul lines was held last week ,
nnd it Is currently reported that a physical
pool of the passenger business between the
two cities was agreed upon and will bo at
tempted definite the Sherman anti-trust
law and Its provisions ngalnst such pooling.
The rates between Omaha and the north
west will bo restored to tariff on Sunday ,
September 25. The first-class rate from hereto
to Seattle , Snokano and Portland will bo
raised from $20 to $50 , and the second-class
rate will bo pushed up from $10 to $10.
Thcso low rates have been in effect for over
n year , nnd wcro put In on account of the
rush to Klondike that was longed for but
never came. They have had the effect of
homewhat increasing travel between the
Missouri river and the northwest , but not
to an extent where the revenue obtained
equals that from ordinary travel at regular
CHICAGO , Scot. 12.A11 the western
roads today agreed to a restoration of pas
senger rates to go into effect September 21.
This agreement will not Interfere with the
special reduction acrced to by different
roads on account ot the Omaha Exposition.
A nromlncnt passenger man on being
ehown the nbovo dispatch said to The Bee :
"I doubt very much whether the T9.25 rate
between hero and Chicago will be disturbed
on September 21 , or until after the exposi
tion. Two of the lines have said they would
rcstoro the $12.75 rate on that date , but
it's another thine to do It. It's not prac
ticable to restore the rate when a man can
go to St. Joe and buy a ticket to Chicago ,
his whole trip costing him less than the
regular rate from hero to Chicago. "

Cluy Engineer Kosownter has made up his
mind in a general way as to what the new
Sixteenth street viaduct is to bo like , anil
this morning ho set the draughtsmen In his
office at work upon the preliminary plant
of the structure. Ho wants to get these
plans and specifications In such shape as tc
malto a report to the city council as soon
as possible. No rlmo will , therefore , bo losl
In drawing them up.
Whllo the viaduct has not yet been
planned in detail , three points are decided
upon. Ono is that It Is to bo of a perma
nent character , constructed of steer , iror
and concrete. There will not bo a bit ol
woodwork nbouB It , except whcro piling maj
bo ncccBsary. In the second place , the
structure will be bullu upon n straight line
Thuro will bo no such dip as the presenl
flftcen-foot decline to the center of the
present viaduct. There is a third point
settled upon and that Is that the viaduct
shall bo strong enough to hold the hcavlesl
sort of traffic to bo carried across at any
sort of a gait. There will ba no signs of
"teams cannot cross the viaduct at a gait
faster than a walk" at cither end of the
The viaduct will probably be fifty-two feet
in width over all. The present structure
has n width of thirty-two feet. The roadway
will be Just double the width of the present
one , forty feet. The sidewalks along cither
sldo will be six feet In width , as they are
at present. The pavements and sidewalks
will bo of asphalt or some similar durable
In many ways the new viaduct will look
llko the old one. There will bo a big truss
where the present ones nro located , but
underneath there will probably be only two
stone or concrete piers in place of three.
This change will be rnailo because the rail
roads do not wish any piers to ho located
on their right of way. All the other sup
ports of the viaduct will bo of steel or
Iron or a combination of these materials and
As yet City Engineer Uosewater Is not
prepared to glvo a definite idea of the cost
of the structure , but it will probably be In
the neighborhood of $150,000.

Wo don't sell school suits for loss than a dollar
but wo could The woods are full of ilimsy
offerings made up for bargain counters , made
up to Pi'll , made up for poor judges , made up to
deceive. There's one thing about the Nebraska's
ollerings we know 'em. Everything wo sell
is made up for vu made up to give good honest
service , made up to please customers and to
bring 'em back. Last year we sold the finest
$2.50 suits that over were sold in America. This
year they are just as good. They are well made ,
well sewed , well woven well cut , they look well
and will wear well. Wo have other suits at
$2.25 , 82.00 , $1.90 , $1.75 , $1.50 , $1.25 and
$1,00 for knee pant suits. Our long pant suits
commence at three dollars for one that is all
wool and handsome , and they run by halves and
quarters up as high as nine dollars and a half.
One thing is positively certain , you can't buy a
poor school suit at The Nebraska , because wo
haven't got a poor one , and another thing is
equally certain , you wont have to worry whether
'tis going to wear after you buy it. We look
out for that.
