. Story of the Zlurliairton.
While these statements are mada by
those opposed to the movement, officials 6f
the Burlington tell a different story. They
say that the Turlington is only one road
out of five whloh have entered the combi
nation to raise the rates, and that no more
blame should be attached to tholr line than
to the others In tfco .fisal. Eut the E-rlicjr-ton
will be the greatest gslmir by the trans
action. It Is estimated that It hauls 80 pr
cent of the soft coal from the fields affected
Into Omaha a. id Lincoln. The Wabash and
Missouri Pacific, are next on the list and
the three lines mentioned bring In 85 par
cent of the coal which come from these
fields. - i -.- '
Strong measures are being taken by the
Omaha Commercial club to fight the move
ment. The matter was JUst ta&en up by
the club with Mr. Crane, who refused to
recede from Tils position. After It was
found that arguments iwere vain with him
a letter -was prepared by the executive com
mittee of the club and addressed to Darius
Miller, first vice presidont and traffic man.
ager of the Burlington. This letter was
to have been ronlSed to Mi. Miller Tuesday,
but It has been withheld because the South
Omaha packers failed, to. sign It It sets
forth all the details of die argument on the
side of Omaha and asks that tho ordor ad
vancing the rates be rescinded. .
Consumer fr Crane la Wrong;.
The cause, for .this action Is said to be
that the coal consumers of Omaha who
have had the matter up are fully convinced
that Mr. Crane Is In the wronar. and' that
It has been ascertained that traflio offlelala
of tho Interested lines know that he Is

There are whispers In railroad and coal
circles that some of the dealers In this city
are lukewarm In fighting tha advance, for
the reason that they have been securing
certain concessions from some of the rail
roads, and they figure that the higher the
rates the greater the concessions. On the
other hand, oth,er dealers nreflfrhjing tha
advance tooth and nail 'for tha reason that
no concessions have been comlngr their, way.
This argument ! taken as reasonable by
some, who cannot . see why coal dealers
should otherwise fight the advance, for in
case the rate Is advanced tho addition will
simply be" tacked onto tbe price to the con
sumer. What the Advance i On.
' The advance ranges from 8 ctmta per ton
on lump emit from a few points to from
""i H to 28 cents per ton on steam, nut and
iTwlne run coal, from a great many points
and districts. The principal advance bolng
on steam and mine riin coal, the blow fells
hardest upon the manufacturers and own
ers of large buildings, who are forced to
use this, coal for power and heating pur.
poses. For domestlo use the consumer does
not suffer much, except In tho one Instance
where the classification of nut coaL from
the Missouri mines has- been changed to
thst cf lump, thus' taking the lump coal
rate under the new tariffs Instead of the
stam coal rate, as is now the case. This
change was made in the Missouri classifica
tion in ordor to make conditions In Mis
souri conform to those In JCansaa'and Iowa,
from which states jiut cool carries tlie
lubip coul rates Instead of the steam col
rates, es has been the case from the Mis
souri mines.- -''
By -the change I classification the rates
on nut coal from the mines In Missouri
have been advanced cn an average about
30 cents a ton. A large quantity of this
claS of fuel Is consumed for domestics use
In Omaha sod Lincoln, but Just how much

11.30 per ton II. i per ton of 1 rents.
This Is ths Ksnsns district from which the
grent bulk of coal originating In that state
comes to Omaha. The new rate of $1.44
per ton Is against a rate of 80 cents per
ton to Kansas City, or a difference of 64
cnts In favor of the city nn the Ksw.
From tbe Mlnfourl district the rates on
slack, and mine run has been changed from
$1.01 per ton to $1.15 per ton to Omaha,
ftt-nlnst a rate of M cents to Kansas' City.
This advance Includes Hut coal which has
been advanced In the classification from
the slack rates to the lump coel rate. From
Iowa, Where the larger percentage of the
coal consumed In this city originates, tha
rates have undergone even more of a dis
criminating advance than from Missouri
and KnnsDS. For Instance, from Albla on
the Burlington, the rate on slack and mine
run to Omaha has been made $115 Instead
of $1.024. as against a rata of 75 cents to
In the latter case the two points, Omaha
and Bt Joseph, ere almost equl-dlstant
from Albla and the other points cm the
Burlington system where coat Is mined, and
why Omaha should -pay so much higher a
rate than Its neighbor teems to be beyond
comprehension to most persons. The theory
Is advanced, however, that the rate to Bt.
Joseph has to be kept down on account of
the hot competition offered by the Missouri
mines, which are located much nearer Bt.
Joseph than Omaha.
Discrimination More Celdent.
There are cases where the discrimination
!n favor of Bt. Joseph and against Omaha
Is much broader than from Albla, From
Cleveland, la., the rate under the new
tariff has been advanced from 89 cents to
$1.15 to Omaha, while the rate to Bt
JoBoph Is left ths same as from Albla, 75
cbtits. This makes a difference In favor of
Bt. Joseph of 40 cents per ton, In a case
where the two points tro very nearly the
Siime distance from the mines. Of course,
the difference In rates from the two points
as compared with Bt Joseph are the same
ondT the new tariff, but under the old
the rate from Cleveland to Omaha as com
pared with that of St Joseph only dis
criminated agRlnst this point to the amount
Of 11 cents per ton, while that froir, Albla
to UUs city discriminated to the extent of
X! cents per ton. 'Thus It will be seen
that in the case of Cleveland the rate has
been advanced to the extent of 40 cents
over the t Joseph rate, while from Albla
It has only been advanced 27V4 cents. This
Is an arbitrary discrimination In the Cleve
land rate of 12 cents "per ton which rail
road ofQclals are unable to offer any excuse
for, , . s
Owing to the fact that the Burlington
practically controls tho situation through
furnishing $0 per cent of the soft coal sup
ply, there seems to be but little hope of
securing relief from any other road If any
were disponed to grant relief. All dealers
and railroad men alike are unanimous In
the opinion that all the other roads com
bined could not supply this city with a
sufficient quantity of coal to keep the fac
tories and furnaces running. . -
What It Will Coat.
Ko one seems to have tabulated figures
which will show Just how much this city in
to pay annually In excess of what it has
paid on account of the advance. There has
been but one guess, so far as can be as
cprtaliied, .advanced, and this Is that ths
additional cost for fuel will be about $150,000
per yer. Some coal dealers are Inclined to
think thesa figures are slightly high, whll
others express the belief that they are not
neaily high enough. It Is pointed out that
the, packing houses 'In South Omaha use
about 800.009 tons of steam coal annually.
The smelter usct approximately seventy
five to ino tons per day. The distillery uses
about forty tons per day, and the street
railway company 120 tons per . day. The
water works are. said to consume sixty
tons or more each day. To these amounts
consumed '(b'jr the heavier uses must be
added the amounts consumed by thousands
of other persons for running small facto
ries, heating large buildings, etc. Far the
largest part of the soft coal coming to this
city will pay the advance In rates. It will
be seen t'rt' by figuring an 'average ad
vance of 20 cents per ton on the coal used
by the packing houses alone the amount of
additional freight paid In a year under the
new tariff will be $60,000 by that one in
dustry. It la estimated that one-third of
the nut coal used In Omaha comes from
"Missouri, and will consequently be subject
to tha advance rate in rates under the new
In addition to all this it must be re
membered that at the present time the
tariffs quote the highest rates from Iowa,
Missouri and Kansas mines which have
been In effect for years. Gradually the In
terested roads have been tacking on a
little until the rates have now been ad
vanced to a point where dealers have been
clamoring- for a reduction, and In ""ace of
this comes another advance which the
heaviest Jobbers declare will be the last
straw to break the camel's back.
What, Crana Promises.
It Is said that Mr. Crane has given his
pledge that the St Joseph and Kansas City
rates w'U be advanced, but Just how much
he has failed to state. This would afford
some relief to Omaha usts of coal, but
would not of course, afford that relltf
which would come from a reduction in the
Omaha rates to put this city on a. parity
with Its neighbors. The advance to the
two cities to the south will not be effective
August 1, but remains to be taken up In
the dim and distant future and figured out;
Just how remains to be seen.
An official of the Northwestern hat said
that, his line would not have been a party
to the advance In the Omaha rates, had It
not been for the fact that an advance has
been promised for St Joseph and Kansas
City, The Northwentern Is not so directly
Interested In- the two cities to the south as
it Is In Omaha, and some relief Is hoped
for from iht quntier, as by refuxing to
enter the agreement. It Is Relieved that
there is a poewibiUty of starting a rato
war which m'srht result In an ultimate re
duction, but this chance is acknowledged
to be siin by those who are supposed to
know. As one man expressed It:
"If some other line would refuse to be a
party to tho raise It would only reault In
Intensifying the feeling ri il-.st the Bifr!
tngton, end might In this way have some
efte-t In the end, but no line which mljjht
stand out could deliver the necessary goods
to keep Omaha factories op.a,"

C. J". Palm, contractor for the erection
of the nsw building of the Scandinavian
Young Women's Christian association at
Twenty-sixth street and Capitol avenue,
and L E. Burdick, architect for the same
building, take rank exception to an article
appearing Tuesday In an evening paper to
tho effect that the city building ordinances
are not being complied with In the plans
and construction of this building.
The article wat one printed In connection
with the statement that Building In
spector Wlthnell considered his office force
Inadequate and would ask for an extra
assistant Withnell was quoted as saying
that he and Assistant Falconer were unable
to look after all the building now in
process, mentioning that "muoh Inferior
work Is being burled by dishonest con
tractora," because the building Inspector
could not get around to inspect their work.
The Scandinavian Toung Women's Chris
tian association building was slrjled out
as showing an example of noncompliance
with thi city ordinance.
"The building Inspector found that the
foundation piers of the new home are too
light and must be replaced," tal4 this ar
ticle. Contractor Falm and Architect Burdick
were greatly surprised at this statement
attributed to tbe building Inspector, in
view of the fact that the plans for the
building were accepted by him, and also
that Instead of Us uaving "found that the
foundation piers were entirely too light''
he had never been near the building since
the work began until yesteTday. Said
Mr. Palm: -
Pacts la the Case.
"Mr. Withnell nor bis' deputy, neither,
had Inspected this work up to the time
this article wat printed. They both were
at tha building yesterday, but had never
been there before. So far as the piers
being too light are concerned, they are
extra heavy and larger than Withnell ex
pected them to be. . Our specifications,
drawn by Mr, Burdick, called for twenty-four-inch
piers, and we hare put in thirty-six-Inch
piers. Withnell accepted the speci
fications at twenty-four-inch, so where in
the world could he have any excuse to
complain at us giving more than he ankodt
At a matter of fact, ha didn't know until
this mornlag what sized piers we were
putting in( except what he knew from our
specifications. It would have been a fine
thing- for the paper printing this absurd
and impossible thing to have made, some
Investigation, for It has come , far . from
hitting the mark and hat cast an unjust
criticism upon us,' '
Achltect Burdick corroborated what Mr.
Palm said of the plans, piers and irspeo
tlon. i ' . '
"I "wan o add Just a word," said Mr.
Palm. "I am a member of the building
committee and the advisory board of the
association that Is having thlt home
erected. Doee it stand to reason that I
would be Interested in putting up" an in
ferior building, therefore?"

Major Church Howe, United 8tate con
sul at Antwerp, came In yesterday from the
east on his way to his old home hear
Auburn. Major Howe it on leave and In
this country not only to keep In touch With
the officials of the Stats department, but
also to pay a vacation visit to his family
and friends. He has had notice that he
will be waited on here by a delegation from
Nemaha county, who will today . escort
him to his destination.
Major Howe is looking remarkably well.
In fact, no one would know that he had
gono through a serious Illness since his
last trip to this country. In the Interval,
too,"-he has been promoted In the diplo
matic service by transfer from Sheffield
to Antwerp a promotion that cam to him
solely-In recognition of efficient service and
without even an application or endorse
ment for the position.
"I like Antwerp very much," said Major
Howe, "although, I will confess I had
formed many attachments In Sheffield
which I was reluctant to leave. I have
been very cordially received In Antwerp
and find living there more than agreeable.
Tou 'Would be surprised at the number of
people In Antwerp who sp?ak English
with more or less fluency. When I first ar
rived I was tenUttred a reoeption and out
of the sixty guests present fifty-eight peo
ple spoke English. That, of course was
exceptional, but wben entertaining they
manage to bring those who speak Knglish
together In a pleasing manner. Antwerp,
too, Is a delightful place, with many at
tractions in the way of art, architecture
and hlstorlo quaintnesa.
'"Of course I am constantly Interested In
the course of politics In the United States
and especially In Nebraska, but I have no
Inclination to re-enter politics In person
and have so told .friends who have re
peatedly urged me to come back, with as
surances that I can have this or have
that. I am willing to let the younger men

Coancll Makes Low Levy.
By close figuring the city council ha
succeeded lu getting the annual tax levy
down to 8.75 mills. This Is the lowest levy
In the history of ths city. According to
the figures compiled by the finance com
mittee of the council this levy will bring
Into the city treasury $163,!). This sum Is
considered ample to meet the running ex
penses of the city for the oomlr.g flsoal
year. On account of there being money In
every fund it was possible for the council
to cut down the levy. City officials declare
that unless something unforeseen happens
there will be no necessity for there being
an overlap in any fund at the close of the
fiscal year July SI, 1906. Back taxes .are
coming In at such a rate that by the time
the delinquents are all collected there will
be plenty of money on hand. Never was
the city In better financial condition than
at the present time.
City Will Repair ravemeat, ,
The offer of E. D. Van Court of Omaha
to repair the pavement on Twenty-fourth
street with concrete will be declined by the
mayor and council. Some years ago the
city tried filling the holes with concrete,
and while the concrete did not wear out,
the asphalt around It did, and soon the
street was in worse shape than It wat be
fore an attempt to repair It had been made.
It wii decided yesterday to purchase
broken stone and fill the holes temporarily.
Mayor Koutsky still hopes to find some
way to have the pavement repaired, as
wa planned some time ago. At the first
plan was illegal, some other way la to be
devised. One thing Is certain, and that
Is the property owners on Twenty-fourth
street will not sign a petition to pave tlie
Street and there does not seem to be any
way of compelling them to do so. An at
tempt ia to, be made this winter to amend
the charter 'so that provision may be made
for just such cases. ., -..
