In connection with the rumor of sale It
was hinted that Nye-Schneider-Fowler had

George Powell of Chicago was chosen
chief grain Inspector of the Omaha Grain
exchange at a meeting of the board of
directors held Monday. Tuesday morning
Secretary K. J. McVann received a tele
gram from Mr. Powell accepting the po
sition. Since the resignation of W. F. Heyl,
several weeks ago, the board has been
casting about for a competent successor.

acting chief inspector.
Mr. Powell has been for six years chief
clerk in the office of. Mr. Smiley, super
Using grain inspector for the city of Chi
cago, and for fifteen years prior to that
was Inspector and chief inspector for the
Peoria Board of Trade. His acceptance of
the position here carries with it the prom
ise to begin his new duties July 1.
"The Importance of th selection to die
Omaha Grain exchange and to the grain
trade of the state cannot- be overesti
mated," said Secretary McVann. "He is a
man of wide experience and ope of the
best to be found. For six years he has
been training under one of the strictest
supervisors in the country, whose inspec
tion and weight certificates have been
good everywhere. He will thoroughly re
oiganize the inspection and weighing de
partment and rut It on a basis which will
make our inspection and weight certifi
cates above suspicion in any market of
the world. It is one of the really import
ant steps since the organization of the ex
change." Though the officers of the exchange are
unwilling to admit It, there has been con
siderable complaint in other markets of
