resident BUckney of tha Chicago Oreat
Western says that everything In now tn
readiness to build up one of the greatest
grain markets in the country In Omaha.
When seen at the Iler Orand yesterday
Mr. Stlckney was asked what he
thought of the present outlook In the grain
market situation and replied:
"The talking Is all done now. Everything
so far as I can see is on a satisfactory
feotlng. Let's go to work with our sleeves
rolled up ,and make .Omaha a grain mar
ket. In . short, let's do business. The
world tn general has no time for the pessi
mist, for the man who says It wllL not win.
What the world is look Ink for is the man
who says It will win and makes it win.
Cities are like men. and If we show the
world that Omaha can make it win, why.
this is the city that tha world will be look
ing for. Personally, I have great faith in
the future of this city as a grain market.
You have everything here to make a mar
ket and all that remains Is to use the miv
terlala at hand and make It. When the
railroads running Into this city dud that
there Is grain here to haul to the east they
will all become Interested In securing the
business and there will be sharp competl
tton for It, and that is what we want; that
Is what will assist in making the market a
surot-ss. The profit in the grain business
Is not lu sending It In here and selling It
on the sidetrack for shipment to some other
point. It is In cleaning it and milling It
and selling the cleaned grain or Its product
in the highest market of the world. The
cleaning and milling makes work, and work
makes business, and business when rightly
conducted mskes money. Why., look at the
grain men of Minneapolis; they are all
rich. You can't tin J u puor one among
them, and that is what we want In
Follow i:ample Mere,
"In speaking of the cleaning of grain. I
remember when I aus younger that farm
ers ued to sell their butter In the toan
market, end It was full of dirt mid hair,
1'rtiirtally hulr. Borne one concluded It
would be a good plan to clean the hair
out. so that people would not have to
consume It ulong with the butter, and. do
you know, that fellow went to buying
that butter esl hutr, and he cleaned it up
and sold the pure product at a much

When ssked regarding the iini.rovements
to be made In the nature of terminal
facilities by his company, Mr. Stlckney
said that work would be begun as soon
as the frost would permit the ground to
be broken. Bald he:
"I want to get everything ready, so that
the work of building can be closed up
early In the spring. I do not expect that
the' work can possibly be completed this
winter, but If everything Is at hand, so wa
can push matters as soon as the frost Is
out ef the ground, we can soon conclude
the work In the spring. I spent most of
the forenoon with some contractors on the J
ground," and they will submit figures for
the building at an early date. The ma
terial will be gathered and everything will
be In readiness. All of the buildings will
be of brick and of a substantial nature.
We expect to use them a long time and
don't want to have to replaoe them. When
asked how much he expected to expend in
terminal facilities and buildings Mr. Stlck
ney stated that of course that was some
what problematical, but he thought the
completion of the first work would cost
upwards of flOil.000, and might reach

Information has been received In Omaha
that Walter Craig, who was famous In Ne
braska thirty years ago as the owner of the
largest ranch-farm in the world, has died
at Troy. O., aged 86 years. Once a man of
unlimited wealth, he passed away a pau
per in the tumbled-down cabin of a former
housekeper. A thirst for speculation and a
fondness for horses wrecked his fortunes
and for ten years previous to his death he
lived a poverty-stricken, cheerless, life ag
gravated by broken health and the Infirmi
ties of age.
Upon hearing of Craig's death yesterday
City Engineer Andrew Kueewater took
an old scrap book from a locked drawer. In
faded Ink he found an agreement dated
July 1. 1874. signed by Craig and' his part
ner, Ephraira Clark, authorising Mr. Rose
water and I. N. Taylor, a deceased Omaha
real estate man, to dispose of nearly all
the township In Stanton county that Craig
owned. It was specified that at least $124,
000 must be received, and as an inducement
Craig proposed to build a brick school
house. He stipulated that the town site of
Craig, Neb., should remain for the purpose
"We 'attempted to sell the vast tract,
which was six miles square and contained
21,000 acres of some of the finest farm land
in the state," said Mr. Rosewater. "It
was Just after the famous grasshopper
plague, however, and there was no demand
for Nebraska land. Eventually Craig dis
posed of the property through other chan
nels. It Is worth at least $1,000,000 now.
Knew Craig Well.
"I knew the man quite well and often
hunted on his place. He bought the town
ship in 1871 or 1872. I believe, and besides
farming, raised cattle on a large scale. He
built the largest barn In the west and col
lected an army of employes about him.
These he gathered In a small town. He
built a fair grounds and a race track, but
they did not prove successful. Eventually
he became tired of the project and became
Interested in Mexican muies."
Craig discovered tome silver mines in the
Sierra Madirs near Chihuahua and organ
ised a eompany lu the states to work them
The Investment paid well and Crald lived
like a king in a magnificent villa near Chi
huahua jnill the death of his third wife
He then returned to the it-.it.j and con
celved the Idea of making a natlun uf horse
lovers out of the Mexicar.a. -gainst the
advice of friends he collected ,ouo horses
in Texas, employed a troop of herders and
set out overland for Chihuahua, 3 miles
distant. The trail was marked with dead
bodies and less than half the horses reached
Mexico. H) learned that the Mexicans had
, no use for the horse as a work animal and
tha venture was a total failure and tha be
ginning of his financial decline. His silver
mines ceased to be productive and he lost
heavily by the failure of a San Francisco

Craig's youth was eventful. He left home
when 12 years old and, after engaging in
various kinds of work and enterprises,
caught the' gold fever in '49. While on
Its way to California his company was
beset by Indians and all but five. Including
Craig, were assassinated. The young man
escaped on a horse and returned to Ohio.
In 1870 he went west again and found a
gold mine in California that he sold for
$300,000. It was not long after this that
he came to Nebraska, worth at least
$500,000, and bought the then largest farm
in the world. He was in Omaha often and
some of the old-timers about town re
member him well.

other lines were holding back the Issuance
of new tariffs to see the outoome of the

probable that so long as nothing was done
there that all lines which are competitors

FIRST CASE UNDER NEW LAW
Test of Kennedy Aet Relating to
Homo Desertion Made In Dis
For the first time in the history of Doug
las county he new and peculiar law en
acted by the last legislature relating to
the desertion of the home by the father or
the mother became operative yesterday.
In the case of the State of Nebraska
against Carl William Ecklund the defend
ant pleaded guilty to the charge of deser
tion. By the provisions of a new law which
was adopted by the last legislature, and
of which J. A. C. Kennedy is the author, It
Is provided that the court, before entering
a sentence in a case like this, msy admit
the offender to ball in other words, he
may "suspend" eentenoe before he has
named a sentence providing the party
agrees to go back home and be good and
provide his wife and children with food,
shelter and clothing.
These things Ecklund has agreed to do
and his sentence, which, strange to say.
has never been pronounoed by the court,
la nevertheless "suspended."

Depaty Marshal Homan Returns from
Rock County with Lone
Witness for PostofBce
A new move Is reported lo be incubating
In the Dietiich poatofnee cases, end that
Is to have the trials of these cases l.eld at
Lincoln during the federal term of court to
be held there, beginning the third Monday
in January, on the pretense that the petit
Jury In ths present terra of the federal
court here In Omaha might not be able to
give the cases a fair and impartial trial
because of more or less familiarity with
the cases as being Investigated by the
grand Jury through constant contact with
the witnesses and grand Jurors aliout the
federal building. It is understood that this
move Is fostered by the Summers element.
The January term of the federal court
will begin at Lincoln January 17, 1904, and
a new petit Jury will be drawn for that
Deputy United States Marshal Homan
returned Thursday night from Rock county,
where he had been summoning witnesses In
the land-fencing cases now before the
grand Jury. Only one witness. J. A. Ma
comber, accompanied the marshal, be vers I
of the other witnesses could not be found.
One witness had recently got Into a quarrel
and was so badly "beaten up and sustaining
other injuries by falling from a wsgun,
was unable to come to Omaha. His assail
ants are to be Investigated by the grand
Tlontestraders Aro Anxious.
The land Investigations in that vicinity
have created considerable anxiety sinong
the homesteaders In tha cattle country and
many of them are extremely loth to testify
against the cattle barons.
