President A. P. Ruokney of tne Chicago
Great Western railwny received tlie com
pliment of the liirgost attendance of the
year at the Frcial ninetlng Friday In the
Commercial club of the Kenl Kwtate ex
change, about sixty being present. In In
troducing the speaktr President Harrison
of the exrhaiiRe Bald that he thought he
voiced the sentiments of nil In saying that
they felt highly honored nt the presence
of the dlHtlngulnhed guest, who had al
ready perhaps done more to silr up the
people of Omaha than mnny citizens who
had llvrd here all their lives. Mr. Harrison
felt that even Mr. Sttckney, who had been
accustomed to success always, must feel
gratified at having put such life Into the
Mr. Stlckney, after saying that he felt
inored at the Invitation to uddress tho
exchange end that the Chicago Great
Western was as much Interested In the
Increase of Omaha prosperity us any cltl
en, having put Its capital here, brought
out the following IdcaH In a straight
forward talk, which Ideas, he thought,
would lead toward prosperity:
"The only way good can be done for
Omaha la for the people of Omaha to go
head and do It themselves. It seems a
elf-evldent proposition that If every In
dividual does all he can to Increase bis
own business he Increases the aggregate
The speaker had been told that there
was a scarcity of houses here -residences
and wholesale quarters. This was legiti
mate business for real estate men. They
had not usually the capital to erect large
buildings, nor bad the business men whoso
business grew faster than their capital.
It waa the business of real estate men to
find capital w.ilch wanted Interest Invest
ments to build these warehouses. There
were plenty such In this section and In
the eaat and the time was ripe.
Mast fttand tp for City.
"People can't build up a city get men
to build factories, etc., by publishing the
fact that railways coming here are dis
criminating against the city," said Mr.
Stlckney. "Any man wishing to locate
would be frightened away. It Is true 'the
ratea as they exist are not conducive to a
grain market here, but this is no more ao
than the cattle rates were before the be
ginning of stock yards. If a start were
made, without doubt the rates would be
conceded. Freight agents allowed rates to
get out of line, but when there In business
to fight for, then Is the time. There le a
difference between fighting and scolding.
No man In Omaha ought to admit that the
city has not the best rates. Chicago
grossly discriminated against never lets It
bo known. I feel that a grain market Is
no doubt possible here, but It must be care
fully worked up. It is not now necessary
for the Commercial club and Real Estate
exchange to have committees, but later
might exert beneficial Influence If this had
Hot been worn out beforehand."
Taking Bt Paul (because he was familiar
with It) he said that in that city there had
been absolutely no demand for real estate
for speculative purposes since 1878 and va
cant land could not be sold. In the last
two year had come a demand for dwelling
houses of from 12,500 to 3,500 cost. One
firm had built fifty such houses last year
and fifty more this year with the Intention
f selling them. They took, say, $1,000 In
cash down, then mortgaged property for
about what It would sell for, say $1,800.
Then took second mortgage, say $1,000, from
ocoupant, to be paid for In Installments of
about the proportion of rentals. In this
way they bad got money out of lands and
kept It In circulation.
On motion of H. T. Clarke, sr.. the ex
change thanked President Stlckney for his
remarks. P, B. Her, D. C. Patterson and
1. IL Mercer endorsed the Ideas of the
