PUBLIC MARKET HOUSE SITE
Defease af Capital Aveaae Lea4lea
Aaalast CrMlelnane ef
OMAHA. Neb.. March 7-To the Editor
of The Bee?, in the report given of the
alleged action and disposition on ths part
of the grocers', association In conjunction
with some commission house Interests with
reference to the market house question as
given In ths Issue of The Bee on the Ith
Inst., 1 desire to say that Inasmuch as
there Is a seeming lack of public spirit, of
loyalty to public Interest and much that
Is misleading . in the reputed statements
made by the Opponents of the proposed city
market house and market place as decided
upon by the city council; in view of these
fscts, although at thla Juncture It may not
be necessary to discuss this matter, yet. It
Is proper to understand correctly ail sides
of a question which Is te affect the Interests
of the entire city. I naturally feel the
ssme Interest that hundreds of other tax
payers feel In the ultimate success of what
Is looked upon aa a tax-saving proposition.
Many ardent Supporters of the Csptlol
avenue site have no personal Interest In
the location. . In fact the Indifference 0f
Capitol avenue property owner, as a rule,
has been very apparent in this matter, as
I learn, so to Impugn the motives of the
many supporters and taxpayers of this city
In their Interest shown In the market house
question by calling It a "scheme of private
speculation" Is unjust, dlsloyel and dis
courteous. Ths reasons for the seemingly
unlverssl interest In, end appreciation of,
the Capitol avenue site, as I understand.
Is first, from the fact that the location ap
peals to people as being convenient of ac
cess for all the psople from all parts of
the city. Then again, Omaha hss wanted
a market house for more than thirty years.
If it wss not a good thing. the people would
not went It, and they are glad now to take
It off the list of wants In so satisfactory a
The building ae contemplated would be a
credit to any city.-' This City council will'
go Into history as. having accomplished
something which, many councils have failed
to do in the last thirty years, and it is be
lieved that they will meet the approval of
all taxpayers in this act, from the fsct
tbst with a natural support the' msrket
house will afford a rich-revenue for the
city and will be appreciated by the people.
.When It Is stated that the grocers will
never patronize the Capitei avenue market
house, I will say that some of the leading
grocers have stated that' they-would be
purohaaere of stalls In the market house
when completed. Instead of casting re
flections upon the location and upon the
proposed building as being deficient In
architectural grandeur and design, why do
not the opponents say that they are op
posed to any city market house and show
their position without equivocation? The
opponents to the market house and" to Its
location argue the' Inconvenience to their
business. Why did they wish to get rid of
the market some time ago? It seemed to
be too near to them then. Why is tho
room on Capitol avenue insufficient when
Arty-nine places are said to have been sold
two years ago and eighty-three places a
year ago? Some folks teem hard to please.
The people bordering npon the old market
place who have previously petitioned for
Its removal seem not to be considered by
the opponents te the Capitol avenue arte.
There seems to be lack of harmony in the
old camp. If, as has bean stated, the mar
ket gardeners across tho river are too
"nosey" and conspicuous In their efforts to
thwart the will of the city council and of
the people, then they had better stay at
home and "go way back and tit down;" We
can do without them. " "
With some there' eeems to he a vague
Idea as to what comprises a city market.'
One would think from the strife and ef
fort made by the opponents that Cabbage,
beets and turnips constituted a market and
that the success of their business depended
upon a location dictated by them. The
fact is. It Is th same old story. I fall to
recall to memory any matter Intended for
publlo an 4 mutual good that has ever "been
presented and acted upon harmoniously; ex
cept the Transmlstlsslppt exposition. '
In other cities where market houses are
being operated- merchants In the commis
sion and grocery line of business- flourish
and prosper 'just aa they would here. The
disposition to antagonise on account of a
fear of personal disturbance and Injury and
through a desire to control for 'personal
benefit blocks the wheels of publlo enter
prise and progress, L. V, MORSE.

John Grant and his daughter; Mrs. Edna

laughs at the sensational stories that were
printed In the eastern papers concerning
the alleged elopement of his daughter,
"The only basis for the story." says Mr.
Orant. "Is that my daughter and her hus
band were married without saying anything
to myself. or Mr. Cornell's parents about
their Intention. They left home -to attend
a theater together and on the way stopped
at the home of aa Episcopal minister and
were married. When' Edna and I left New
Tork and were crossing the river to Jersey
City she told me what she had done. He
told his relatives at the same time.
'X have no objections te Mr. Cornell as a
son-in-law. If I had been consulted I might
have advised the young folks to wait a year
or two, not because I opposed their mar

Urge number of voters who had neglected
to register or vote last fall were sworn In

order to handle the crowd. No count was
kept of the number of votes sworn In, but
It was 'not less than 200.

A call for a special meeting of the Tax
payers' league has been sent out by A. H.
Morrill, for a meeting of the members
tonight at Kelt's hall. It Is stated In the
call that Important business Is to be trans
acted and every member Is urged to attend.
While no special mention la made In the
call of the Importance of the meeting, It
has been reported that steps ars to be tsken
to prevent the council. If such a thing Is
possible, from renewing the twenty-year
bonds now outstanding at the same rste of
Interest. It is possible that a restraining
order may be asked for from obe of the
judges of the district court. The plan of
the council ' to renew these bonds, which
have nearly fifteen years to run, does not
seem to meet with fsvor among - people
who are paying heavy taxes.

The South Omaha cavalry was mustered
into the state service last night by Captain

At the conclusion -of the muster. Captain
Hodglns addressed ' the troop, and gave
some advice, which will come handy later
on. Captain Holland also made a few re
