"What Omaha needs most to make It a
great grain market Is a mllllng-ln-translt
rate , " remarked Harry Miller , one of the
local grain men. "Tho mllllng-ln-translt
late will permit grain passing through here
to bo unloaded and'placed In the elevatora ,
and then shipped on to the seaboard at [ I '
the same rate a la given n consignment
ncnt to Chicago , New York or New Orleans.
Until we secure this we can't hope to build
up a great market hero.
"Tho mllllng-ln-trauslt rate Is given to
Minneapolis and Kansas City and as a re-
Hiilt both have been built up Into good
markets. At these places wheat may be
taken from the original cars In which It
Is started and stored In the warehouses and
elevators and It not sold It can be shipped
on at the original rate , which Is pro rated
according to the distance which It came and
which It Is to go.
"Tho elevator capacity of Omaha Is
greater than many have supposed. The
Woodman elevator , now owned by Halnes & ,
Mcrrlman , experienced grain men , holds
650,000 bushels ; the Fowler elevator , 1,000-
000 bushels ; the old Hlmebaugh elevator ,
630,000 bushels ; the elevator across the river
1,000,000 bushels and the new Peavcy ele
vator about the same. Thus It can be seen
that the city has an elevator capacity sum- |
clcnt to do an enormous grain business
whenever the grain comes here to be ban-
"Could the mllllng-ln-translt rate bo se
cured buyew would come hero and they
would maku this a market. With a market
other elevators would bo constructed and
in les than a year employment would bo
furnished to hundreds of men. In addition
to wheat thcro would also bo enormous
quantities of corn handled and this could
bo made one of the greatest corn markets
of the country Instead of being no market ,
as It Is at the present time.
FrelKlit Hiitcw Are Low.
"The railroads have treated the state fair
In the way of shipping grain and all of the
howl about exorbitant rates Is bosh and
without any foundation. Kansas today Is
the only stale that has a better grain rate
nnd for this reason the farmers have no
cause for complaint over the way they have
been treated by tbo Nebraska railroads. It
Is not generally known , but last year when
prices on grain were forced up , rates In
Nebraska were put down , thu i allowing the
farmers to reap the benefits.
"Nebraska Is rapidly becoming one of the
ercat grain producing states of the union
and farmers are getting back to wheat , at
the same time doing more In the way of
mining a variety of crops. This fall the
acreage of winter wheat In the state will
bo fully one-third more than/ / last and next
spring moro spring wheat will be sown tnan
"During the last ten years farmers have
planted nearly all of tholr land In corn , but
now they begin to feel the folly of raising
only ono kind of grain , nnd as a result , with
u favorable season , we will raise more wheat
next year than nt any time since the early
days of the state , when every farmer put
all of hlu land Into wheat.
"If Omaha can secure the rate sothat
Tvhoat In transit can bo'unloadcd and stored

make this a market forwheat /

At a meeting a week ngo the council
p.isse.l the necessary resolution and this
resolution was returned at the last meeting
by the mayor without his approval. In an
accompanying message ho stated that while
he much preferred to see the Board of Ed
ucation get the bonds rather than anyone
else , yet for the sake of a precedent he In
sisted that the bonds should go to the high
est bidder. Ho also pointed out that
Omaha's standing as a bond seller might
be Impaired If It established a habit of dis
posing of bonds to other than the highest
bidder If the latter Is responsible. Finally ,
In the case In question , the mayor pointed
out that some consideration ought to be

view of the fact that that firm recently
bought the entlro batch of $300,000 renewal

Action of I In- City Council ItalHm n
The action of the council Tuesday night In
deciding to award to the members of the
old fire and police board salary for the actuaT
tlmo they served In eplto of the fact that
the report of the city attorney , which the
body asked for , was to the effect that they
were not legally entitled to It , Is consid
ered somewhat peculiar. According to thin
action the old board will bo paid for the
entlro time It was in offlcc that Is , until
and Including a portion of September.
The new board made a demand for the
office In February immediately after It was
appointed. The council approved the sal
aries of the old board , however , until June ,
when It was decided to discontinue doing so
because It was not known which wan the
egal board. Every month the two boards
ut In claims for salary and each lime they
vero turned down. Finally , when the su-
rcmo court decision put the new board In
lower , the old board had on flic claims for
salaries for June , July , August and Scptem-
cr , and the new board had similar bills
or the month from February to September ,
n order to settle the matter the council
asked the opinion of the city attorney.
Attorney Connell stated that the new
> oard was entitled to the salaries from the
Ime they made a demand for the office , but
hat it would have to look to the old boarder
or the salaries paid the latter until June.
Ml unpaid salaries remaining In 'the hands
t the city , however , should go to the now
> oard members. In spite of this opinion ,
hough , the council has decided to glvo the
old board these salaries.
Mayor Moores has not yet determined
what action to take regarding the matter
and will not determlno until after some con
Conlcn the State Lair.
The fire and police board ordinance which
was passed by the city council is Intended
only to put into the laws of
ho city a provision of the man-
ler of appointment and length of
service of the board in accordance with
a recent decision of the supreme court. In
asmuch as the members of the board have
been appointed In the past by the governor
under state laws , no such city law has been
required , but now that the supreme court
decides that the mayor and council have
the power of appointment It Is. necessary.
The ordinance Is much like the state law.
There are to bo four commissioners , whoso
terms will expire on the first Monday in
April of 1899 , 1901 , 1902 and 1903 , respcct-
vely. On the last Tuesday In March of
each year the mayor must appoint the suc
cessor of tbo member whoso term empires ,
which appointment shall bo approved and
confirmed by the council.

Then they turned to figures. They said
Mcecrve had saved $700,000 , to tbo state , but
wo sent a smart young fellow up there to
Lincoln to find out Just what the saving was.
He was one of the able young men of The
Bee , and ho discovered that about all of thla
"saving" came from Joe Hartley. Another
Item was knocked out when It was shown
that wo had sent $250.000 out west to feed
the populists and keep them alive. ' They
crowed about the penitentiary saving. Allen
had said It had required only $4,000 to keep
It going. Our young representative of The
Bee Investigated this claim and we learned
that It took $37,000. We drove them step by
I step until they abandoned figures and took
I to slander and abuse. John V. Cornell , the
' fusion candidate for auditor , got out n card
1 paying ho had saved $99,000 to the state.
j Wo said to him you could not have saved
i that much. He then got another card repre
senting that ho had made a direct saving to
the taxpayers of $12,898. Think of such a
drop as that , will you ? W. F. Porter , their
candidate for secretary of state , bad a card
y out also , pretending that ho had saved in
the collection of fees $20,000. The Bee re
porter told him that ho could not have saved
anything because the treasurer collects the
fees. He then came out with a statement
to the effect that ho did not collect any fees.

Leaving their figures , they had to fall
back upon , poor Bryan. It was Allen who
put Bryan Into this campaign. They tried
to make It appear that the administration Is

matter Is thut Mr. Bryan picked upon the

Allen and Holconili Point Out Dl -
trcvn ItepuhllcaiiH Will Ciuine.
The fuslonlets of the Fifth ward were en
tertained last night by Senator Allen , Governor -
ornor Holcomb and Matt Gerlng , with the
) senator leading off and consuming an hour
of .the time. Ho &ald that the principal
Issue In the campaign Is whether or not a
republican shall succeed him in the United
States senate during the next six years.
After this he explained the method of electIng -
Ing senators and then declared himself a
candidate for the place.
Senator Allen dwelt at great length upon
what he has accomplished for Omaha In
tbo way of legislation. Ho claimed tbo
credit for tbo passage of the bill appro
priating money for the exposition , the bill
for the establishment of tbo Indian sup
ply depot and several other minor measures.
When he goes back , he said , ho propose *
to urge tbo passage of a bill for the es-
taWiehment and maintenance of an Indian
school upon the Fort Omaha military res-
ervatlon and another giving to tbo city the
Government building upon the exposition
grounds , the same to be used for a mu-
scum or some other public purpose. Ho
smissed the financial questions by de
claring that the republicans are the advo
cates of dear money. He predicted dire
calamity by telling his audience that the
republicans In the senate Intend to pass a
bill retiring all of the paper money and
create another Issue , redeemable In gold.
Governor Holcomb ventured the opinion
that ho was among people who bad been
converted to bis way of political thinking ,
after which he arraigned the entlro repub
lican party. He advocated the election of
G. M. Hitchcock to congress , giving as a
reason that Mr. Hitchcock owns a newts-
paper and was born In Nebraska. The governor -
ernor admitted that a wave of prosperity
has swept over the country elnce tbo elec
tion of President McKlnley , but attributed
thla to tbo good crops of the post year
and the war with Spain , which took out
of the country a couple of hundred thou
sand of the worklngmen , thus allowing those
who remain at homo to secure positions at
good waged , Ho said that now the causes
which brought better times have passed
away and In closing predicted dire calamity
It the republicans carry theelate. . He de
voted much tlmu to telling what his ad
ministration baa accomplished In the way of

Matt Gerlng devoted the greater part of

produces more or less Irrltatlou , show-
liiK Itself In shortness of breath , pain in
the heart , or In boinc of the numerous
nerve centers of the chest and abdomen.
In most cases the pain Is not Is the
heart , but appears In the bowels , especi
ally In the left side , In the left shoulder
and down the left arm. In bad cases of
neuralgia of the heart the pain will
shoot Into the head , chest and both arms ,

and controls the heart action while it
purifies the blood , stimulates the diges

The following letter la from Mrs. H. W.
D11S3 , of Winchester , N. II. : "Three years
ago I suffered a severe attack of rheumatism
In my left side and shoulder which left my
heart In a very weak condition. Frequent
smothering spells , shortness of 'breath from
going up stairs or sweeping , together with
severe pains In my left sldo and between
my shoulders made mo unlit for my house
hold duties. At night nftcr retiring I ex-
perlenccd great difficulty In breathing , and
would frequently have to sit tip or walk the
floor to keep from smothering. Being un
able to obtain relief from other sources 1
was Induced by a friend to try Dr. Miles'
Now Heart Cure , and after taking four
bottles I was enabled to attend to my duties
about the- house without feeling the least
exhaustion. The pain In my side and the
smothering spells both disappeared ; my ap
petite Improved and my health was better
In every way. I have nothing but words
of praise for that wonderful medicine and
have recommended It to many of my
From an old soldier of the rebellion comes
the following : "J have had rheumatism of
the heart for years and have Buffered at
times very severely with pain at the lower
edge of my left shoulder blade and through
my heart : It would bo BO bad at times that
I could not sleep nt nlgbt and often pre
vented mo from attending to my work.
.After using almost every remedy that 1 over
bcnrd of I finally purchased a bottle of Dr.
Miles' New Heart Cure and a Restorative
Plaster. They were like oil on the troubfcd
waters , for I went to sleep and rested nicely
thu first night. I continued with thcs
remedies until I was fully cured and bavu
had no return of my old trouble since. "
