"It would not be worth while to express
an opinion," responded Mr. Mead. "Tho
appraisers have worked on the case Just
aa often and aa rapidly as their other du
ties permitted. We feel we have made sub
stantial progress, but I don't know aa I
can estimate what proportion of the work
we have finished. . We are out here now at
the request of the Water board, eg' that
the latter may submit certain matters.
These Include an Inspection of the riprap

we will do remains to b Btrmlned at

When attention was called to the fact
that Engineers Cooley, Williams, Ritchie

the plant, the response was:
"The way the case was presented to us,"
replied Mr. Mead, "meant that a tremen
dous inuM of testimony, schedules, maps,
etc., was brought before us for considera
tion. Following out the method in which
the case was given to us, we have to take
Into consideration and determine the value
of every separate Item. This makes the task
very difficult and requiring minute care and
time. We have no desire to hold back the
report any longer than necessary, but wish
to make the appraisement In the most
painstaking manner possible."
"Do you know how the engineers who

A union meeting of the various council
of the Royal Arcanum order was held
inursaay night at Royal Arcanum hall.
Sixteenth and Harney streets, to listen to
an address by Special Deputy Supreme
Regent E. Lindsay Grler of Pittsburg on
the subject of the change in the Insurance
rates of the Royal Arcanum recently pub
lished. Mr. Qrler's address was explana
tory of the action of the supreme council
In raising the rates, attempting to show
that it was essential to the best Interests
of secure Insurance and that the members
were not assessed in excess of the ,.,i,ui
cost of the risk. The actual cost of Insur
ance at the minimum age now In the Ar
canum under the new rate was about W
per thousand, while that of the old-line
companies at the lowest figure was $11.
He held It was not the purpose of the
new ruling to drive out the old men of
the Arcanum, but simply to equalize the
rate, requiring them to iuv hut a ...,
portion of the burden, which had hitherto
been thrown largely uDon the vmm.
Mr. Grler has been vlsitin the .! a..
canum lodges throughout the state In the
interest of the increased rate and explain

RECENT COMPANY WILL STAY
choa Factory People Deny Intention of
Eemoring to Blair.
PRESIDENT WILLIAMS MAKES A STATEMENT
Willing; to Consider Offers from Any
Community, bnt Has Made Ko
Overtures and is SatlsBed
Blair Is very much stirred up over the
prospects for the removal of the Regent
Shoe company's factory from Omaha to
that city. The report reached here last
night that the Regent company had made
a proposition to the Blair Commercial club
for the location of the factory, nnd the
club hod appointed committees to investi
gate the company's standing In Omaha and
to canvass for subscriptions. The Blair
Pilot yesterday published an article re
garding the matter.
The truth of these reports are dented by
O. B. Williams, president of the Regent
company, who says the company has made
no proposition to the Blair Commercial
club. H. Q. Harte, vice president of the
company, makes the same statement.
Advices from Blair say the Omaha com
pany has proposed that If the people of
Blair will furnish 150,000 the company will
put In a like amount and build at Blair a
plant with a capacity of 600 pairs a day;
also that If Blair does not accept the
proposition the company will go to some
other town, as It wishes to get away from
the entanglements of union labor In Omaha.
Mas Made No Proposition.
"The company has made no proposition
to Blair." said Mr. Williams, "and we are
not considering the matter. I can easily
explain how the report got started. Two
weeks ago 1 was In Blair and members of
the Commercial club came to me and asked
me If the company would consider a propo
sition to remove to Blair. I told them that
any offer of theirs would receive considera
tion. Since then I have not heard from
"About a year ago, at the time of the
consolidation of the Richardson Shoe com
pany and the Williams Shoe company Into
the Regent Shoe company, Blair people
opened negotiations with us. but we were
unable to arrive at any satisfactory con
clusions with them.
"Union labor Is all right, and we are not
trying to get out of Omaha on that account.
We are not opening negotiations with any
town On the other hand, I will say that
we are always ready to consider the propo
sitions which any town may make. All
that has passed between me and Blair has
pansed unofficially and tho company has
neither made nor received an offer."
The Regent company's factory Is located
at 1 North Twenty-fourth street. It
has beeu running a lltU mora than a
year, since the Richardson company came
hero from Davenport, la., and Joined forces
With the Williams company, which was at
that time solely n Jobbing firm. The Rich
ardson people said they came to Omaha to
get Into a larger town and to get the ad
vantage of better freight rates.
SPOKANE SENDS0UT BOOMER
Representative of Chamber of Com
merce Cornea to Middle West
to Advert Ue City.
R. C. Rohrabacher, representing the
Chamber of Commerce of Spokane, Waali..
who is visiting the principal cities and
towns of the middle west for the purpose
of advertising the advantages of Spokane
as a point of Interest to tourists enrouto
to and from the Port lurid exposition, Is In
Omaha. He says:
"Hpokane is a city of 70,000 populntion'and
we -are the center of an area of about 150.
000 square miles, embracing parts of Wash
ington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana and Brit
ish Columbia, which is nearly one-half of
the original Oregon territory. This area Is
the only part of the United States acquired
by discovery. The resources tributary to
Spokane are as varied aa they are ex
tensive. Including agriculture, lumbering
and mining gold, lead, silver and copper.
There is certainly no Bectlon of tho coun
try where the farmers are In more pros
perous condition than they are In eastern
Washington, and all forms of Industry and
enterprise are thriving in an equal meas
ure. Spokane Is destined to become a great
manufacturing point, having a developed
water-power second In volume only to Ni
agara. It Is the greatest railway center
of the Pacific northwest at the present
time. The climate is not surpassed any
where In the west. Being east of the Cas
cade range, the excessive precipitation ex
perienced by the coast cities Is avoided,
and altitude and consequent rarity of the
atmosphere render the- summer tempera
ture less oppressive than the thermometer
"As a place of Interest to visitors, Spo
kane has no apologies to make to the pub
lic. The city has excellent hotels and
theaters; has the best restaurant west of
New York City, beautiful parks and drive
ways, Is surrounded by gems of mountain
lakes and rivers fairly teeming with trout
and bass, and Is within easy reach of big
game in the adjacent mountains.
"The people of Spokane are making a
particular effort to Induce visitors to the
Lewis and Clark exposition to stop off and
see their city and are spending thousands
of dollars without hope of any other return
than will be received In the Interest and
good will of all who accept their Invitation."
