Magic riy Gossip.
From the talk on the aire eta yeaterday It
It predicted that the mass meeting called
for this afternoon at the council chamber
to protest against the supposed annexation
bill pending In the legislature-will be Well
attended. Sentiment Is divided In regard
to the matter and If a aeeting Is held there
la likely to be some lively talk on both
aides. Rome of the heavy taxpayers appear
to favor annexation now, as they consider
that It will come before Ions anyway. On
the other hand a certain clique of politic
lana are opposed to the measure.
In speaking of this matter last night a
well known democrat said that the city
would be better off lf.lt waa annexed to
Omaha than It Is now. The money, be said,
now paid to city officials could be used for
Improvement! and the rate of taxation de
creased. ' This decrease In taxee Is what
those who favor annexation want. As it la
now the city has no money to pay Its atreet
lighting bills, neither haa It money to pay
for the extension of water main. With
annexation It Is asserted that the city will
be well taken care of In thla respect and
at the aame time the amount of taxes will
be reduced. Some who are Interested seem
to think that the council chamber win pot
be large enough to hold the crowd and last
Bight there was talk of securing other quar
ters. Should a change in the arrangements
be made notice will be given In the papers
Friends Solicit Aid.

Before things took a turn for the better
the outlook was anything but cheerful on
John Bird's farm at Oakdale, la. Thrrs
was a mortgage on the place, there had been
slcknets and death. In the family and Mrs.
Bird waa run down-from worry and work.
But In apite of her rheumatism, which made
It agony for her to . move her right arm,
she kept at work to help raise money to
lift the mortgage.
"I never expected It," says Mrs. Bird,
"but Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Tale
People cured me of my rheumatism and
gave me a new lease of life and strength.
The disease had lodged In my right shoul
der find t pained me so much tbat I
could not sleep on that side. I could not
get my right ha'nd behind my back and.
In fact, had to use the other one for nearly
all my work. I was nervous, my heart was
weak and my atomach gave me a great deal
of trouble. Nothing that I took did me
any good. t ......
"Then I read of some ' wonderful cures
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills had made in cases
like mine and I determined to try them my
self. My rheumatism had. become chronic,
but these pills soon helped me and after
using them for a time was cured."
The real cause of rheumatism Is the pres
ences of acid In the'blood, which Irritates
the senlstlve tissues that unite the Joints
and cover the muscles, thus causing those
Indlscrlbable tortures which rheumatic suf
ferers endure. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
for Pale People go directly to the seat of
the trouble, exerting a powerful Influence
In purifying and enriching tlie blood by
eliminating polaonous elements and re
newing health-giving force, thus making a
potent remedy for curing this disease.
Dr. Wllliama' Pink Pills for Pale People
are an unfailing specific for all diseases
arising from Impoverished blood or shat
tered nerves. They cure not only rheuma
tism, but locomotor ataxia, partial paraly
sis, St. Vitus dance, aciatlca, neuralgia,
nervous headache,, after effects of grip, of
fevers, and of other acute diseases, palpi
tation of the heart, anaemia, pale and sal

BOTTINETT, N. D.. March 6. William
Ross was hanged here today for the mur
der of Thomas Walsh, in July, 1902. Rosa
walked to the scaffold bravely, bade good
bye and expressed sorrow for his crime.
Ross was asked before the trap waa
sprung who killed Leamy and answered
firmly "Cart Hanson."
The murder' of Napoleon Lea my In this
city laat year la attll a mystery, and it was
suspected that Ross at least knew who
"If the prevailing conditions continue,
you may look out for 60-cent corn," re
marked Messrs. Boyd ft Merrill, grain and
commission men In the New York Life
building, last evening Just at the clcee of
business. "Corn was 48'b cents at Mil
waukee at the close of the market."
Other commission men are of a similar
opinion, and W. E. Ward, manager of the
Weare Commission company, reflects the
general consensus of opinion among grain
men of this city when he says: "The con
ditions are bad enough throughout this sec
tion. The bad weather la causing the corn
to heat In the elevators and cribs. It Is
next to Impossible to get cars to haul tho
com out. The elevators are full and tho
cribs are full, and there Is no epparenti re
lief that we can build on. Another bad
feature about the corn through this section
Is that It has not been greded up, and, in
fact, Nebraska corn will not even average
No. 3, and most of It will go No. 4 and
lower. The crop has been a disappoint
ment, and to cite you an Illustration: A
farmer over near Nebraska City who was In
here today had confidently expected to real
ize 35,000 bushels of corn last year, but had
to content himself with only about 8,000
bushels of grade corn. In some sections ot
the state the elevators art full and refuse
to accept any more corn. In some instances
the elevator men are compelled to build
addlt'onal bins to their elevators to admit
of shifting the corn to prevent its heat
ing." Reserve and Condition.
From other commission men infoimatlon
is derived similar to that quoted, and thn
general aummary is that the corn of last
year Is naturally poor because of the wet
season, as It came from the fields, and
that the meager facilities for grading It
will reduce the quantity of No. 2 corn to a
relatively small figure. It Is expecteu that
the forthcoming government report, March
10, Will show a large reserve of corn In the
hands of the farmers. This Is evident In
yesterday's receipts of corn at Chicago, 255
cars, but of that number not one car graded
No. 2. This la going on day after day'Jlke
a continued story.
The price of corn 1b very likely to rise
In Chicago because of the small percentage
of corn In the houses there. This will con.
tinue until the car situation In the west la
relieved, and but little relief can be looked
for until the opening of lake navigation In
April. There was some encouragement in
the messages from Illinois last evening,
which state that tho car situation has been
very materially relieved there and that the
general movement of grain has b?gun from
the Illinois elevators. The best grtdea of
corn to be found In the corn belt are In
Illinois, the southern section of Iowa,
southern Nebraska, northern Kansas and
Missouri generally. There is no corn at all
In the northern part of Nebraska that can
be considered as a commercial or market
able commodity. The same rule will apply
in northern Iowa.
Anent this subject, the following estimate
based on over one thousand replies received
from over the'eprn belt from reliable cor
reapondenta of the George H. Phillips Grain
company of Ch'cago, will be read with interest:

Edward Roses ater for dinner St the Ovh
club during the few hours tbey apent In the
OMAHA, March 6. To the Editor of The
Bee: Mr. William Sprague's contribution
to the agitation of real and fancied weak
ness as a commercial town contains no new
note in the chorus of self-defamation. It
is the same old refrain to which I have
been compelled to listen for more than
thirty years. Railroads, like banks, and
other people, preserve their own Interests,
and In doing this they make and unmake
commercial towns and cities by a power
that cannot be controlled by any other law
than that ot business in the long run.
Omaha owes Its existence, and all its vast
and varied interests, as it will chiefly owe
Its future strength and advancement, to
railroads. The people know this, and those
of Omaha aro vociferous for more of them.
Abuses in rate discrimination, In rebates
and in some of the rates of freight have
existed everywhere from the beginning.
Open wars have been made by railroads on
great towns and cities. The "Peoria cut
off" and the Milwaukee rivalry were golntf
to destroy the future greatest city In tho
world on Lake Michigan In years gone.
Omaha survived the Burlington diversion
at Plattsmouth, and the once perfect block
ade against its South Platte trade, didn't
tt? And how about the North Platte
Northwestern war of diversion, for lo, these
many years, and which still continues?
I am sorry to hear so much agalrjst this
powerful, prosperous and growing young
city. It would, I suppose, be both ungra
cious and vain for mo to protest against
the noisy - and groundless assaults upon
Itself. I would substitute words of confi
dence and cheer for those of' discourage
ment if I could again be heard and heeded
in the old way In the affairs of Omaha.
I venture the suggestion of three things
for the absolutely sure solution of the
problem which excites so many people at
this particular time, as follows:
1. Instead ot now purchasing the water
works at from 84,000,000 to 88,000,000, I
would renew the contract for ten years on
a scale of reduction of rates that would be
fair to the company and the people.
2. I would vote a subsidy of $500,000 to
any responsible company who would de
velop the Platte river water power on a
basis of schedule for power and lighting
for all purposes aa cheap, plus cost of
transportation, as St. Anthony's Falls gives
power to its world-renowned flouring mills.
8. I would vote subsidies to the amount
of $2,000,000, If necessary and practicable,
to induce the Omaha S'reet Railway com
pany or sny other company or companies,
to build Immediately three interurban lines
of railroad in co-operation with the Burt
and Washlnton county lines to Decatur and
Sioux City, which is already a live project;
one from South Omaha to Millard, Fre
mont, Columbus, Orand Island and Kear
ney, and one to Lincoln.

In the Bee Building
We have two offices that we can offer
at a very low rental considering ths
fact that the price of $10 per month in
cludes light, heat and janitor service.
These offices have both bien newly dec
orated and are attractive and comforta
b'e both in wlntjr and summer. There
are not many offices lik: this in the
building and they never stay vacant long
Better call at on.
