This Big Deal.
The biggest deal for residence property
in 20 years. It was not made to hold for
higher prices. Present . owners, compelled
to sell part of it at a close margin at once.
You have looked upon this beautiful tract
of ground with wistful eyes, now you may
have a home there. The prices will be.
within the reach of people of moderate
means and on easy payments.

,see this city pass the 125,000 mark and now prophe
sies nothing can stop its reaching 250,000. Omaha
is destined to.be a Great City.

PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 1. The credi
tor of the Real Ratals Trust company
which failed laat Tuesday, are still with
out any definite knowledge of the true
condition of , the Institution. ', Up to the
present the best Information they " can
obtain from the' receiver or the directors
Is that they Believe the depositors will

Tor the moment, Mr. Earle is giving:
considerable attention to the matter of re
sponsibility for the condition of the Trust
company. The depositors generally And
fault with the directors for their failure
to acquaint themselves with the bad con
dition of the company, and the directors,
In turn, want to know why William F.
North, the treasurer of the Trust com
pany, and Horace Hill, the auditor, should
not have discovered Mr. Hippie's irregu
lar transactions. -
The Dr. Rev. William Roberts, stated
Olerk of the Presbyterian general assem
bly, has made formal application to the'
reoolTer to examine the securities for
the trustees of ' the general assembly.
These were In the custody of President
Hippie and they amount to nearly $1,000,

their relatives withdrew their accounts
from the Trust company after they knew
It was Insolvent are denied by ' offloers
of the Institution. .
Prompted by the discoveries he ' has
made in the investigation thus far,
Oeorge H. Earle, receiver of the Real Ei
tate Trust company, has engaged Attor
ney John O. Johnson to render a legal
pinion as to the responsibility for the
collapse of the bank. Upon Mr. John
son's findings will depend the question
of suing the director.
"The deepen I probe Into the -affairs

and the loss will not be heavy to any of

ASKIXU TOO MICH. ,
Association of Doctors -Want Foarth
of July Abolished.
In the course of a year a good many
churches In the United States are struck
by lightning. During the, summer resort
season many people are drowned.. Numer
ous children have stomach ache as the re
sult of gustatory excesses at Sunday school
Yet we hardly believe that the American
Medical aaaoclatlon would favor the aboil
:lon of churches, summer resorts and Sun
day school picnics because of the mishaps
incident to those Institutions. There is
hardly anything connected with the life, of
humanity which has not some drawback
or disadvantage. .Only . In . heaven a.nd
perhaps not even there shall we find roses
without thorns. ... . , -y, .
The American Medical association. fol
lowing the. lead and accepting' the statis-j
tics of certain paeudo-Amerlcan newspa
pers which evidently design to destroy the
Fourth of July ss a national anniversary,
demands that everything possible shall be
done "in the way of legal restrictions of
Fourth of July celebrstlons." In other
words, the association wants to stop the
commemoration of Independence day.
The excuse for this demand Is ta be found
n the cssualtles reported by the newspa
pers from which the association takes its
cue. Because a certain number of people
a number never yet positively ascer
tained hurt themselvea on the Fourth of
July, therefore the celebration of that an
niversary must be abandoned. As we have
pointed out In the beginning, this reeson
Ing, If applied generally; would put an end
to religious worship, to , summer outings
and to other, forms of recreation.
It , would also stop railroad travel, be
cause people are killed on railroad trains;
It would mean stagnation for almost. sll
forms of amusement and Industry, since
some peril Is Incident to all of them.
We doubt whether the American Medical
issociatlsm would care to accept the log
os I resutts of Its own reasoning. . because
It would put tha medical profession out of
business. Many people die under the hands
of doctors; ergo, abolish doctors. The
conclusion Is as fair In this case as It Is
In the Fourth of July matter.
Rut the association probably did not In
vestigate the ease thoroughly before pro
nouncing judgment. It was deceived by
the Anglicised newspapers snd Instead of
confining Its recommendations to' the treat
ment of tetanus resulting from Fourth of
July wounds It undertook to condemn the
Fourth of July Itself.
Tills demonstrates the truth of the old
idage about the shoemaker and his last.
8a long as medical associations stick to
medical matters they are unon aafe
around; when they venture farther afield
hey are likely to make themselves ridiculous

, . .. Some Cbaaaca .la Frlces.
Nothing out of the ordinary happened In
Omaha Jobbing circles last weea, except
that the diy goods houses had the largest
house trade In their history. Grocery, drug
and hardware houses had a good business,
nd the shoe ' Jobbers report considerable
doing for the time of year. Collections are
reported fair by the .majority of Jobbers,
but the Implement houses tina money hard
to get. Tnis 'IS due to the fact that the
farmers ' are' not disposing ot their crops,
and consequently have not settled with Ute
retail dealers, borne Important changes are
reported iu the . price of hardware and
'inn ory goods trade, sey Omaha Jobbers,
waa very good last week, In fact, the houite
trade ot tne last two weeks has been the
largest .ever known in this market. Hales
of dress goods, closks, underwear, and in
iact, all defccriptlons of fall goods, have
been on a very free scale, and many large
western buyers who have not heretofore
depended on Omaha for their supplies, have
visited the local Jobbers, Cotton goods con
tinue strong and In short supply, though
there Is a noticeably lower tendency on raw
material. No quotable changes have been
made in the price of leading goods, but
manufacturers continue, well sold out, and
win maae no concession.
. Advaace ta Hardware Llae.
Several changes of Importance, mostly In
the line of advances, have been made in
hardware in the last week, devices went
up . fi a pound, and predictions are for
an increase on all similar lines of goods.
Owing to the scarcity of material, spade
and fork handles advanced about 10 per
cent. lick and mattocks have scored a
I per cent advance, and shovels and spadss
are expected to go higher. Indications
point to a heavy demana for poultry net
ting next spring, and the chances are an
advance will be made. All Iron, steel and
tin articles are enjoying a heavier demand
than ever before, and hence it la not
strange that prices should a-o hiaher than
they nave been. House trade has been
good, and salesmen are sending In a nice
Bugar Is practically In the same position
as laat week, with the exception of a little
firmer feeling on raws. The American
Bugar Refining company of New Orieans,
advanced the price early in the week 10c
on ail grades, but tne - other refiners
did not follow, and the price here Is un
changed. It is the general - Impression,
however, that prices will be higher next
week. There was no market Saturday and
will be none Monday In New York, on ae
on all grades, but the .other refiners
are still several, days behind on nlllna tnelr
orders, and trade will be heavy for four
ur nve weeas yet.
Cheeje Is a trifle easier, twins being
quoted Wo less than laat ' week. 1'lie

buyers ,holdlng off on aocount of present
high prices, thinking that lower prices may

tlon. Although they have reported there
ws av nonage in ins Alaina pacK,
and a very marked shortage in the pack of
Bockeyes. yet they hsve named a price
which Is lower than they have-named for
years, with the exception of the low prices
named last season. The price this year is
iuc nisner on re a yviasaa man ine low dhbis
of last season, sad pink salmon is so high
that It csnnot be sold st retail under l-'Vo.
The medium rtd is enly slightly lower
than the blood red. The consumption of
salmon is heavy and It looks as if the
red salmon would all be absorbed on the
basis of present prices or higher.
The past week seems to have shown no
better results In the tast with reference
to the pack of tomatoes. The feeling Is
very strong and many packers are buying
to cover their sales.' While weather con
ditions are slightly better they are not
ideal by: apy uteana. The result of the
pack la not at all promUliig and while a
fair pack may yet be nmde, It would aceiri
Impossible lo make auytnlng like a large
pack of tomatoes In- the , est. Reports
from nearby ton ato cannere indicate inm
the fruit has b?en sun Cooked, some
packers Indicating that their output will
only be about one-third of what they antic
ipated three or four weeks sgo.
There Is no chants In the situation on
canned corn, except that some of the
packers report that the late corn has not
Lied well aaa taajr Ui pauk about two-;
thirds of what they anticipated three
weeks ago. '
Deliveries ace being made on . canned
peas on future contracts and the quality
from Wisconsin shows up remarkably
good for an unfavorable season. The mar
ket is sustained at the ruling prices.-with
no appearance . of weakness from any
frices have riot yet been made on oysters
by- the packers, and it would seem as if
they rare unable to come to terms with
their, shuckers and laborers. Stocks aie
cleaning up rapidly and there wjll be very
few left In the hands of Jobbers when' new
goods are ready.
The situation Is strengthening on one
quarter oil sardines. New mustards are
Just beginning to move. The whole tone
of the situation is strong, Wltn nigner
prices still possible.
Evaporated apples for Immediate ship
ment are slightly lower. The quality Is
not of the best, and cannot be until fruit
Is evaporated from tbe late fall or winter
Dried Fralta Are Higher.
There has. been a movement on the Pa
cific coast of large proportions, which has
caused an advance'of 1 cent per pound un
this Item. - Packers have been holding off,
hoping to' depress .the market to a point
where- It was safe to buy. One of the
packers determined to take In all he could
get at the. price that was ruling about
two weeks ago, and this haa caused all
of the packers to set their buyers to work,
with the result above noted.
Standard and choice apricots hare aiso
advanced to cent per pound. Prunes
are. more nrmiy neia ana nuni new
goods for September shipment have been
marked up V4 .cent per pound by some of
the best snippers.
There Is very little Cheap rice left In
the hands of the mills. Hesd rice is also
cleaned up well and hew rices are be
ginning, to appear on the market. Infor
mation at hand would seem to Indicate a
fair crop of rice only, perhaps less than
was available last season.
No prices have yet been named on these
goods. There is a rumor that prices will be
named Monday. The situation so far a
shipments are concerned. Is so unsatis
factory on the coast that In all probability
imported walnuts will be depended upon
largely for the trade up to the first of
Boot aad Shoe Coadltioae.
Jobbers- report no change In the price of
leather, although they look for an ad
vance at a not far distant date, according
to reports from the prime markets. Road
salesmen are sending In good orders, notwithstanding-
the fact that most of the
merchants have ordered their fall and
winter goods and have the new stuff In
their stores. Balesmen will soon go on the
road with spring goods for 11)07. Collections
among shoe Jobbers have been very satisfactory-
during the past week.
Palate, Glass aad Oils.
The glass situation shows firmness. The
demand is good. The chilly weather of ths
past few days has stimulated dealers to
buy, and as a result business in the glass
line has been very brisk. Unseed oil re
mains aa quoted last week, boiled being
39 cent and raw J7 cents.- Turpentine Is
up a trine, being 60 cents. Liead rejnalnj
the same as last week. Carter's bein 714
centi. while Southern is 7H cents. Paint
business is very good, there being an
especially heavy run In the burn paint line.
ABOL1SH1NU SPECIAL, FAVORS.
Ohio Railroads Cat Oat Coareatlea
The Ohio legislature, at Its last session,
passed a law reducing the fare on railroads
to I cents a mile. Recently the executive
committee of the republican state commit
tee of Ohio asked the railroads to make a
special rate to the republican state con
vention. The railroads made reply that,
as the legislature had reduced the fare to
J cents, they could not reasonably be asked
further to deplete their revenues by con
ceding special reductions.
It Is gratifying to see ths railroads taks
this position. When everybody psys only
a reasonable price for transportation there
will be no excuse for special privileges to
any favored claas of travelers. In rhe long
run the railroads themselves will be bet
ter off If they collect only a fair charge
from 11 and carry none free. Tbe po
litical life of the, country will feel bene
ficial effects if that form of petty bribery
known as the pass shall be entirely eli
minated. Bo far as the enactment of the
J-cent fare law In Ohio has tended to re
duce the free transportation evil it haa
been productive of a benefit of great value
In addition to what was directly Intended
by ths champions of ths measure. The re
cant act of congress prohibiting the giving
ef sassa for InterstaU-travel to aoy but
emnloyes of railroads Is an Important step
In the right direction. It Is gratifying to
be assured that the railroads themselves
welcome this regulation and propose to en
force it strictly.
The railroads doubtless will make special
rates for special occasions, where the vol
ume of traffic warrants reductions. But
the lower rates In such cases should be
made on that basis, and not simply because
politicians desire to travel at a cheaper
price than is 'accorded to other patrons of
the transportation lines.
Abolition of special privileges Is a neces
sary preliminary to securing fair treatment
for the people as a whole.
