:. ? and 22 of block S In Albright a Annex.
According to his statement the county road
passes through the three lota and tukes
tip three-fourths of the property, and yet
he' hs been paying taxes on three Iota
for seventeen years. During this time h
has built several fence and buildings,
which, if the present survey I correct,
stand on the space designated aa the alley.
Action baa been begun to cause Mr. Brun
fV.y to move his building. And on this he
makes the declaration that the alley take
from him tho other one-fourth of his three
Ims. Here he makes tho pertinent Inquiry
hs to where he la to borne In. He says the
buildings and fences have so stood for ee"
eral years without complaint. The county
id runs diagonally through tho property
and so trtkes up one-hBlf at the least, and
imsslnly the three-fourths. , If the line of
the alley is changed., very much where It
parses along tho north side of the lota
there " w ill not be much left. Mr. Brun
xky says" he has puld taxes on three full
lots for seventeen years and how It hap
liened that he received no compensation
when the road pusscd through his holdings
Is unexplained. It mny also be that even
If his buildings are found to be on the
alley they cannot be moved by the statute
recognising undisputed- iwssesslon. His
principal re'iurxt In the case, however. Is
that the city engineer make a new and
accurate survey of ' the street and the alley
which appear to encroach on his land.
The counc'l will make a canvass of the

tlon of the result of the same. It may
be thiif some of th preliminary steps will
be taken for the carrying out of the will

Charles II. lickens, secietary, treasurer
and general manager of the Paxton ft
Oallagher whuleaale grocery company, re
turned last week from a business trip to
New Tork City, bringing the report Ust
Nebraska and Omaha are being well and
favorably advertised throughout the east.
Mr. Pickens was surprised at the knowl
edge of the conditions out hre at the
command of the bankers, financiers and
business men whom he met. They all de
clared they were aware that big strides
forward have taken place during the last
few years and that the outlook Is brighter
than ever before for commercial pros
perity .and advancement.
Said Mr. Pickens:
"My trip necessarily was a hurried one
and I did not have as much opportunity
to else up the east from a western stand
point as I should have liked, but I met
quite a number of bankers, brokers and
others who keep more or less In touch
with things out here and they all dis
played the greatest interest In the west.
They were particularly ke, Inquiring
about the developments such as manifested
In railroad extensions and irrigation proj
ects. Without exception they had beard

think It quite in the course of natural
events coupled to a live and energetic

growth of the Grain exchange, the busi

figures for the amount of building con
struction and the gain over previous years.
I found a few who had not seen The
Bee's New Year's edition, so I took their
names and have arranged to send thein
copies. I considered that the best way of
driving home their good opinions and giv
ing them something more definite to con
sider and talk about.
'I had sent some of the piixe-wintiu.g
corn at the Ak-Snr-Bcn show to some finan
cial men In New York and I found they
had hung up the ears in the office. The
cobs had been nearly divested of kernels
by men amused at the sise of the ears

quiries as to where similar seed can bo

corn than they are used to in the east.

"We went via the coast line to 8an
Francisco and stopped at Ranta Harhara,
and Monterey. Ran Francisco has some
magnificent buildings and more are being
erected. The St. Francis struck me us
being a model hotel with all the rooms
facing the outside world, and I brought
home ground plans for Ideas for the build

"He Is very enthusiastic for the future of

parties of surveyors have been busy near

the state for some time. The building of
the Milwaukee road to the coast or to a

SILVER CREEK. Neb., Feb. 1.-To the
Editor of The Bee: Looking over an old
Impressions book, under date of February
I. 18. I find a letter to Oeneral Charles F.
Mandersou In which It said:
Remembering a conversation I had with
you some years ago In regard to the pass
question, which you will prolmbly not re
call, I write you ns one of the general offi
cers of the Burlington to offer a sugges
tion which, I trust, you will take under
serious consideration.
I am of the opinion that If the railroad
companies of Nebraska would unite on
two bills, the one prohibiting all free trans
portntlon of passengers and the other re
ducing fares to 3'i cents per mile, cause
them to be Introduced In the legislature
and In good faith try to secure their enact
ment Into law. It would be one of the most
popular things they ever did. put thetn on
better terms with the people and. In the
end. be to their miamia! advantnge
anti-pass bill should be sweeping and strln-
gent in its terms ami one inst rauroaa rx'O
ple themselves would feel bound to obey.
And they, better than others, would know
how to draft such a bill.
General Manderson didn't seem to take
kindly lo my proposition. But, In view of
subsequent development. I am satisfied
that my advice was timely and good. I
wish now to renew my suggestion with
this modification, that the passenger rate
be made 2 cents Instead of 2 cents. The
railroads would do well to make a virtue
of necessity and take the Initiative In this
matter. If they don't the next legislature
will be likely to do so. The people will be
demanding a ?-ccnt rate, and an nearly all
republicans have recently got pious on the
railroad U"itlMi, they will he only too

earning thoe hateful railroad papers

tor of The Bee: Whoever has attentively

Is now a spirit of investigation and Inquiry
among men Into the past and present char

which nothing can stop or even control.
Mr. Roosevelt recognises this spirit and is
contributing all In his power to check and
warn the courts and ti usts of the Impend

Reproach, obloquy, threats and precau
tions will be In vain. They may embitter
opposition and endanger violence, but thev

this research Into the practice and methods
of the lives of men In whom they have
been deceived, wronged and robbed, men
who have contributed nothing to the moral
or material welfare of society outside of
what they own unci control personally, and
only. To the thinking nnin there Is a silent
march of thought, which will detect all
hypocrisy, deceit and fraud, and it Is not
difficult to see will lie marked by Important
events all over the nation. Mankind were
never before In the slttintlon they now
