SATURDAY A . SAILED FOR BOYS
STRONGEST CLOTHES VALUES IN THE UNIVERSE
An effort by the K.;riington to prevent
the Northwestc rn railroad from tapping the
r.ch Dig Horn basin field will. It li re
ported, come to a head within the next few
ilsys, n foon ns the result of the survey
ing party now tn the Nowood divide ran
make Its 'report to the officials of the Bur
lington. Upon tlni survey not only the en
trance of the North western Into the Big
Horn basin depend, but at least the im
mediate future of Thormopolis, as the adop
tion of the Nowood route would leave that
town without a railroad.
The Burlington surveying corps Is now
seeking a route down the south slope of
the Big Horn mountains, and If It can be
found the Thermopolls canyon route will
be given up. The surveyors have found a
practical and easy route up Klrby creek
to a point directly east of Thermopolls,
from where the survey follows east to No-
wood and following that stream to the top
of the divide. The difficulty Is In getting
a practical grade down onto Clear creek to
Badwater, which would afford clear sailing
from there on.
The tremendous cost of he Thermopolls
canyon route, together with the agreement
with the Northwestern to allow it to use
the canyon right-of-way, makes It advan
tageous to the Burlington to find another
way out If possible. Should the Nowo id
route be adopted It Is thought the North'
western would hesitate many years be
fore attempting to build a line alone
through more than twenty-five miles of
solid granite canyon and the Burlington
would thus have the Big Horn basin field to

lends color to the theory that this road ia

hausted every other resource.
Cheap nates to Black Hills.
Conrad E. Spens, general freight agent
of the Burlington, returned from Chiiago
Friday and brought the good news that tae
probabilities are for largely reduced rates
from the east to Black Hill, points, with
relatively reduced rates from the Missouri
When the western roads announced re
duced rates to Utah commen points there
was a general clamor for reduced rates to
other sections of the country and no
comes the Burlington In conjunction with
tho other Blacks Hills lines and gives the
Information that these rates will be most
Grain on the Move.
Grain Is starting to move In abundance on
the lines west of the river and the roads
wirl soon have all the business they can
handle and more, and all are g iln expect
ing a car shortage, for Nebraska has an
enormous crop to be moved. The most
noticeable movement at present Is from
Nebraska to Minnesota on wheat. This Is
taken by the railroads and dealers as a
"trong argument for mills at Omaha, for If
the Nebraska wheat Is good enough to be
used In the manufacture of the renowned
Minnenpolia flour It surely would be good
enough for Nebraska flour.

OMAHA. Dec. 6. To the Editor of The
Bee: Speaking from the floor of the old
senate chamber In 1838. Daniel Webster
said of the political dsmagogue of that
clay, as follows:
They excite the poor to make war upon
the rich. Thpy complain of oppression.
(peculation and the pernicious Influence of
acrumuiatea weaitn. iney cry out iuaiy
ra-nlnst banks and all corporations and all
the means by which small capitals become
united In order to produce Important and
beneficial results. They oarry on a mad
hostility aga not all established Institu
tions. They would choke up the fountains
of Indus. ry and dry all its streams.
The American Demosthenes was speaking
a year after the panic of 1837, when the
people were In the midst of dire distress In
their homes, as they were found In 1R96 by
the Bryan brand of demagogues, who did
their best to organize revolutionary discon
tent in our country- Webster's portrait of
them holds the mirror up to nature, as we
find them now, although every man of
Judgment knows that prosperity was never
greater In any nation than It Is tn our own.
The Brynns and the Hearsts "complain
of oppression, speculation and ths per
nicious influence of accumulated wealth,"
without which labor would famish and
The Bryans and the Hearsts "cry out
loudly against banks and all corporations
and all the means by which small capitals
become united In order to produce Im

The Bryans and the Hearsts "carry on a

tutions." The Bryans and the Hearsts "would

Water Power Possibilities.
NEW YORK, Nov. 28. To the Editor of
The Bee: A wideawake Omaha man, Mr.
J. B. McKlttrlck, writes ms that the power
canal la being revived. Everyone interested
in Omaha will have that much thanksgiv
ing with his tomorrow's turkey.
Ontario, Canada, recently passed a bill
making hydraulic elevator power companies
public service corporations, and a commis
sion called to regulate rates, so great the
development there. Besides U8.0UO horse
power at Niagara falls, from Atlantlo to
Pacific these plants are springing up like
Jonah gourds. Tha Shawlnigan Falls
Power company has 100,000 horse-power
eighty miles northeast of Montreal. Its
transmission lines deliver light, beat and
power In Montreal, eighty miles away, and
can deliver 100 miles up. It Is building
transmission lines to other cities. Large
manufacturing plants have already come to
ths power plant at ths falls aforesaid. A
Lac nine rapids company Is developing 35.000
horse-power and Is starting another plant
of ao.Cu) horse-power on the Soulangts ca
nal. The Hamilton Power company devel
ops up to 40,0u0 horse-power. Tbess are only
a few of tha Canadian examples of wise
financiering foresifht, all a success.
Schenectady, N. Y., was the deadest cem
etery In the United States before the power
plant. Now look at It go with a hump In
Its back to keep up with itself.
Maseena Springs, N. Y., a village of 1.000
people; but a few million dollars In power
plant worked a miracle and they are de
veloping more. They had to blast It out
of rock, while Omaha can cut It out Ilka
cheese. Plenty more facts like these to
prove that Omaha Is sleeping on a gold
mine, and If It docs not wake up soma en
terprising company will tap It with a trans
mission una from 100 miles away, then
good by to opportunity.
Ontario s bill empowers tha commission
to build transmission lines in aid of cities
desiring tf. foster manufactories and gives
It the power to appropriate the plants of
recalcitrant power companies. Oet a bill
more Iron than all England! More than
Russia and France' put together! Pitts
burg produces more commodities In ten
weeks than the London docks, the pride of
Great Britain, handle in a year, says the
December Munsey. What makes Pittsburg
alone a peer of nations? This is the magic
wand twenty-nine billion tons of power In
the coal of Its hills! Power to make
things, power to do things! What else
makes a matt, or a city? Pittsburg fac
tories have profits to make 130 millionaires
a year. Bays Munsey. Why It is wide
awake, working with its power Instead of
sleeping on it. Nobody In Omaha wants to
be a millionaire.
Read the "Romance of teel In America"
In December Munsey; then let every
Omaha cltlxen "kick himself" for murmur
ing at fortune when the power that makes
millionaires Is trembling at his snores!
Massena Springs invested millions In
power plant, then had to Induce factories
to get a market. Omaha has the market
for Its power greedily awaiting to get it.
That power plant will make a payroll of
factory hands that will fill your banks with
millions of deposits. Fill the merchants'
tills with millions of profits. Fill the hive
of every Industry with busy workers, build
ing up the real Omaha. Fill the corporate
llmMa with the homes of thousands at
tracted by a power that helps them to help
themselves. From New York City, with Its
marvelous development now amazing the
world, to the magic growth of Los Angeles,
Seattle, etc., all cities are having a great
upbuilding along the line. Omaha has the
power to do all that they have done. It
can double Us greatness with the power
of a giant enterprise. Instead of waiting the
slow accretion of years. Will it do It, or
wait till some legislative enabling act, like
Canada's, permits some rival to appropri
ate its power plant and Its greatness?

WATERLOO. Neb., Dec 6. To the Editor
of The Bee: Our friend tjulnn, the optician,
who writes from Fremont under date of
December 1 to deny having had anything
to do with the disappearance of Viola
Ayers, lays the blame for the report of his
supposed connection with the case to Cap
tain Hase of the sheriff's office; and to put
the gentleman light and relieve the cap
tain of the charge, I wish to say that at
the time of his visit here nothing was
known of the rumor about the optician
and that I alone am responsible for the
appearance of the rumor In The Bee.
It Is unfortunate, but inevitable, that In
a case of this kind some should be wrong
fully suspected, and our good friend should
not take the matter to heart, for he has
company In his supposed trouble. The
story was sent In without any thought or
purpose to harm Mr. Qulnn If he was not
guilty and In the hope that possibly It was
a clue worth following. I have personally
received a letter from Mr. Qulnn and take
this public means of saying that his alibi
appears to have the mark of genuineness
and doubtless Is O. K. Respectfully,

Officials Are Xov Negotiating for a

The Rock Island Plow company of Rock
Island, 111., Is negotiating (or a bu.lding
site In Omaha and probably will be ready
to announce the location of Its purchase
soon. It proposes to erect next year a
warehouse of five to eight stories and of
large ground dimensions.
At present the Rock Island company's
Omaha branch has a part of the Avery
Manufacturing company's building, across
the viaduct from Union station, but the
space at its disposal Is entirely too small
for the growing business. Months ago the
company realized the Immediate necessity
of larger quarters and all summer and fall
It has been looking about for a building,
preferring to lease rather than erect one.
But warehouse room Is veiy" scarce In
Omaha and tha search was unsuccessful.
Tha company has finally decided that It !
must build. One of Its officers has been
In Omaha several times In the last few
months looking at real estate and he Is
said now to have a deal under way.
This Is but another Instance of the
growth of Omaha's Implement Jobbing
trade. A few years ago the Rock Island
branch wag established on the Council
Bluffs aide of the river. Since It has moved
to Omaha Its business has developed un'll
It needs several times as much room as
It had In Council Bluffs. .

lias Just completed a building, which, with
the site, cost $150,000; the Raclne-Sattley
