Wsata Found Dead la Room.
Mrs. Ora Cunningham was found dead
in her room at 608 North Twenty-fourth
street at an early hour Saturday morning.
Mrs. Cunningham lias been subject to
fainting spells for some time past and it
la thought she rose from her bed and was
seised by one. Apparently she fell forward
on her face, for the Aesli was bruised In
several places, the cheek, nose and chin
bowing contusions. Either she died of
heart failure at once or the flowing blood
from the wound of her nose smothered her
before she regained consciousness, is the
belief of the coroner and those who ex
amined the body as It lay. As soon as
the body was discovered Dr. Koenlg was
called and made the Arst examination. He
waa unable to be of any assistance, as life
waa entirely gone before his arrival.
lira. Cunningham was a pioneer of the
city. She was a member of the Maccabees
and this lodge will have charge of the
funeral arrangements. The services will
be held Monday at 8:30 a. m. from St.
Agnes' church. The interment will be in
St. Mary's cemetery. All of the members
of the order of which Mrs. Cunningham
was a member are notified to be ready to
offer the solemn rites of the order in honor
of their sister on that date. Coroner
Brailey will hold an Inquest Tuesday at
I.eaT Brokea la Hanaway.
C. C. Kennlson received a broken leg
last evening as the result of a runaway
accident at Twenty-second street on the

was riding with his brother, with whom he
lives at 211 North Twenty-third street,
when the horse took fright at the sally of
a dog and ran away. Both brothers were
thrown out of the rig but only the one
was seriously hurt. The leg waa broken
Just above the ankle. The time of the ac
cident was shortly after 5 p. m. The Brewer
ambulant was called and Mr. Kennisoa

concerts that were given by the Royal

public favor at the park last season, and
their re-engagement will be the source of
gratification to many friends. The ban. I

popular direction of Bandmaster John M.

at the opening concerts, the evening audi

The strict rules, ensuring good order,

Local Grain Eiohantre Men Favorably
Impress All at Iowa Meeting.
LARGEST AND MOST ACTIYE DELEGATION
Secretary MeVana Replies thl
cago'a Speeches, hoilna Advan
tages to Iowa to Patronise
Omaha's Grain exchange created an Im
pression among the grain dealers across
the Missouri river, when it sent nineteen
representatives to the annual convention
of the Iowa Grain Dealers' association last
week. Though there were in attendance
delegations from Chicago, Minneapolis,
Peoria, Kansas City and St. Louis, Omaha
sent the largest delegation of them all.
The men who went returned with the be
lief that their visit eventually would re
sult In much good for the local exchange.
The Interesting featua? of the meeting, to
the Omaha men, was the rivalry between
J. J. Stream of the Chicago Board of
Trade and E. J. McVann, secretary of the
Omaha Grain exchange, in presenting the
claims of their respective markets. Mr.
Smart delivered an address at the banquet
and Mr. MoVann replied to him in a speech
the next day, and when it was over his
friends declared he had the better of It.
A part of Mr. McVann's speech follows:
I was particularly Interested In the paper
read by Mr. Stream of Chicago at your
banquet last evening. Mr. Mieam had
something to say about Chicago being the
natural gateway for your farm ptoduets
and ulso had something to say about the
artificial diversion of business by reason
of unlalr rates made by certain railroads.
I want to say to the members of the Iowa
Grain Dealers' association that 1 believe
Mr. Stream's use of these words, natural
and aitUlclal, arises from a wrong concep
tion of the situation. Through the fact
that all the great railroads which cross
the state of Iowa have their termini in
Chicago, a very largo proportion of your
farm products lias been marketed In C'hl
csko. This has been the case for so many
years that Chicago people have come to
believe that they have some right to the
handling of your products regardless of
circumstances. In claiming this right they
overlooked the fundamental fact in regard
to transpo rtatlon that was so well staled
by Jame s J. Hill, when lie said, some years
ago, that you could give a kick to a bar
rel of Hour at Minneapolis and it would
roll to -i v Orleans without any further
effort." 'i l ie is a profoundly philosophical
statement n.i.l fully Illustrates the propo
sition thai commerce always seeks the line
of least resistance. When the Omaha grain
market was established two years ago, and
as a result the G.OW.if'O bushels of storage
capacity which we now have, was created,
the railroads leading from Omuha to the
Gulf of Mexico, which have no partlculur
interest in the Chicago market, availed
themselves of the opportunity thus afforded
by making what they considered to be fair
rates for the transportation of Nebraska
and Iowa grain to Galveston and New
Proof of Same Old Thins
The Chicago people regarded these rates
as artificial ; ihey regarded the condition
arising from the making of them as arti
ficial, but It was onlv another evidence
of the strength of t lie proposition that
commerce always seeks the line of least
resistance. The distance from Omaha to
New Orleans Is no greater than from Chi
cago to New Orleans, and the distance
from omaha to Galveston Is less than
from Chicago to Galveston. The rate from
Omaha to New Orleans and Galveston.'
plus the vessel carrying charges from New
Orleans and Galveston to the ports of the
old world compared favorably with the
rates to Chicago plus the carrying charges
from Chicago lo those same ports, and the
result was the grain moved direct from
Omaha through New Orleans to Galveston.
The Chicago people have had h great
deal to say about the magnlticient facilities
that their market affords for taking care
of your grain: they have mentioned their
great storage capacity; they have exploited
the perfection of their weighing system and
they have praised their whole system of
doing business as they see it. We have no
quarrel with these claims, but I want to
say to you, gentlemen, that the Chicago
people have neglected to mention one thing
which Is the greatest barriers .to their
growth as a grain market and aa a com
petitor of the Omaha grain market for
the business of the stale of Iowa, and
that is the narrow policy of the traffic
executives of the great trunk line roads
leading eastward from Chicago, which rail
roads have refused to consent to reduce
or shrink their revenue to any considerable
extent to meet the condition created by the
action of the Omaha gulf railroads in re
ducing their former paper rates on grain to
a fair and Just basis. The time waa when
Chicago enjoyed the advantage of its great
stretch of water transportation on grain
shipments, but now these same trunk line
railioads have purchased practically all of
the grain carrying line boats on the Great
Lakes, and have greatly narrowed the
margin between the cost of all-rail trans
portation and rail and lake transportation
These two facts, vis: The willingness of
the lines leading from Omaha direct to the
gulf to accept a fair rate for th
transportation of your grain anil the un.
willingness or me lines leading esatward
from Chicago to reduce their charges ac
cordinglythese two factors, I say, have
had (treat Influence in diverting business
for the "na'.ura " Chlrago gateway, through
the "artificial" gateway of Omaha.
