Traellng men may put up J10 less for
t..elr mileage books east of the Missouri
nver after Jajiuary 1 than they have here-
t.ifore. The recommendation to reduce the
price of western 2,000-mile tickets from
to r0, with a refund of $9.50, and to reduce
i lie 4.(i(X-mile credential to a VXio-mllg cra
ilcntlal has been Individually adopted by all
the lines Interested tast of the river and
will be made effective January i.
These two decisions on tha part of the
western lines mean a great deal to the
traveling men, as the first compels them
to put up- 10 lew for their mileage book
and the second requires them to ride 1,000
miles less (efore taking; advantage of the
benefits of the credential system.
Travellrg men all over the country hava
been making an active crusade against the
railroads for demanding additional money
for mileage books and some business firms
with a large number of traveling men on
the road have large suma on deposit
through mean of the mileage book at all
times. A demand was made that the roads
sell the book at straight t cents per mils.
The claim la made by passenger men that
If a mileage book was sold at a flat rate of
2 cents a mile, which would require no re
fund or extra expenditure on the part of the
purchaser. It would result In wholesale
scalping of these books, and few persons
would purchase regular tickets, even for
short Journeys, because of the comparative
eiuw with which they could get mileage
books from scalpers.
There Is, however, a growing movement
ot revolt on the part of the traveling men
to this form of mileage book, and In all
states the railroads ate beginning to hoar
complaints. One of the results of this
agitation Is a, demand for legislation for a
straight 2-ccnt mileage, without reservation
and on all tickets, which has taken definite
form In several of the states, and Is spread
ing throughout the middle west and the
east. The railroad and warehouse com
mission of Illinois has promised to take up
the matter within a few months, when a
full hearing upon the subject will be had.
New Vnlon Parllle Branch.
Right-of-way Is being bought by agents
of the Union Pacific for the construction
of a cut-off In Wyoming from a point near
Curr station, on the Denver-Cheyenne
branch, to Borle, on the muin line, ten
miles west of Cheyenne. The new lint
will be twenty miles In length.
The Athol hill section of the Union Pa
cific, lying directly south of Cheyenne, tins
long been a stumbling block In the speedy
handling of traffic between Denver and
Cheyenne and the trip of 100 miles between
the two cities now requires about four
hours to make, when a two and a half-hour
schedule should be maintained. As a result
the passenger service is and has always
been abominable. This objectionable pleco
of track will be eliminated by the construc
tion of the new cut-off, while not any
shorter than the prescut route, will avo.Ti
the sharp curves and heavy gradients
which now have to be negotiated.
A email trimeter station will be estab
lished at Borle to avoid shipping Kansas
City freight back to Cheyenne to be trans
ferred. Contracts for grading will be let
In a couple of weeks.
Erery Kniploe lts Raise.
Kvery employe of the Union Pacific win
receive a raise In pay January 1. While
this raise Is not very large, the aggregate
amounts to considerable. The ralfe Is not
permanent, but only for one month, and It
la brought about because there is now
more money In the hospital fund than Is
needed, tto the regular CO cents which Is
taken from the pay check of each em
ploye for the month of December will not
be deducted this month. An Impression
prevails that the Union Pacific will grant
a rdi.xa of some sort to Its employes gen
erally that will be permanent.
Car Tracing" Chanac.
The change made at the Burlington head
quarters In transferring the tracing of car
load freight from the office of the general
freight agent to the assistant superinten
dent of transportation la larger In scope
than was first anticipated, It also trans
fer considerable cf the work now being
done at the general offices In Chicago to
Omaha. Three new men will be put on this
work exclusively In Mr. IMckeson'a office
and by this change the shipper will get
much better and more expeditious service.

The property formerly belonged to Wren's
father. Thadeus J. Wren. sr. He died May
I. lWfl, about a month before the birth of
the plaintiff In the suit. By the will the
property wag left to the widow, Patty C.
Wren, no mention being made of the pos
thumous aon. Mrs. Wren mortgaged the
land and during the hard times It was sold
to pay the mortgage. Blnce then It has
been transferred- several times. Last fall
It wag bought with the adjoining lota by
Count Crelghton and given to the university.
Mr. Wren contends that as he was born
after the will was made his right to a
share In the property could not be affected
by the will or the administration of the
estite under It. The retltlo'n was filed by
J. W. Eller, who says there Is no dispute
among the claimants as to his client's
rights, the suit being necessary to fulfill
certain legal requirements to hold the
former owners, who have given warranty
deeds for the property. Under the law the
half lot will have to be sold and a fifth of
the money awarded to the plaintiff.

the Omaha McKlnley club annual banquet
January 29. Word was received to this
effect Monday morning. Members of the.
committee arranging for the banquet are
elated over the prospects of securing Mayor

Mayor Becker Is 30 years of age and the
youngest mayor of any metropolitan city

In addition to the present storage rapa
city of 6,10,000 bushels It Is certain that a
number of large railway elevators must be
built in Omaha In the near future, if the
decision of the Interstate Commerce com
misalnn In the Peavey case should be such
as to make It Impossible for the railroads
to continue paying elevation and loading
cut allowances to the private elevato.s.
The traffic managers of a number of the
large railways testified before the com
mission in the Peavey case that they had
recommended to the management of their
companies the building of such elevators at
Close study of the conditions of grain
production shows clearly that, while tho
territory tributary to Omaha does not rank
first In production of grain, it comeg very
near ranking first in surplus production,
and this latter fact Is most significant when

Territory Will Be Enlarged.
The territory tributary to Omaha as a
grain market will be very largely increased
In the next decade. Facilities are being:
rapidly created for the storage and utlllra- I
Hon of the watte waters In western Ne.
braska and eastern Colorado and Wyoming.
The Campbell system of dry farming Is
being utilized for the growing of grains In a
vast stretch of territory which has here
tofore been considered arid land. South
Dakota west of the Missouri river, western
Nebraska and all of Wyoming are being
covered with new railroad lines and the
result will be the breaking up of large
tracts of land and the production of grain
In. a very large territory used hitherto
solely for grazing. All of this territory Is
directly tributary to Omaha and Its growth
will develop the Omaha market.
If Omaha is to have the full advantage
to which It Is entitled, based on Its posi
tion with reference to grain production, we
must havo fair treatment from the rail
roads that serve us. After one of the worst
grain rate wars that the country has ever
seen, Omaha obtained a fair adjustment
of some Nebraska rates as against the
Mississippi river and Chicago. We have
been negotiating for many months for fair
rates for the rest of Nebraska and from
South Dakota points, but have not yet suc
ceeded In convincing the railroads of the
Justice of our demands. We will, therefore.
although very regretrully, bo compelled to
seek lor a proper adjustment of tnese flg
ures through legal channels. 8hould w
succeed In getting a fair adjustment as
against Minneapolis and Chicago from the
north, and as against Kansas City from
the south and southwest, we are confident
that the natural advantages of our position
will raise the receipts of the Omaha grain
market to a point second only to the re
ceipts at Chicago.
Distributing: Facilities Necessary.
No matter how well Omaha may be sit
uated with reference to receipts of grain.
It will avail It little if it has not dis
tributing facilities equally as good. In
this respect we are very fortunate and we
feel that our future Is assured. We have
at Omaha the western and northern ter
mini o( five great railway systems. This
assures us free outlets to Minneapolis and
Duluth on the north; to Chicago. Milwau
kee and Peoria on the east; to Kansas City,
New Orleans and Oalteston on the south;
to St. I-ouls. Memphis and all the south
east. Through these lines we are able to
reach, upon favorable terms, not only every
market that can be reached by any com
petitor, but every market that can be
reached by every competitor, and there Is
not another primary market In the United
States, receiving an thing like the volume
of business that la being received ut
Omaha, which can truthfully make the
same boast.
For the period ending September 80
Omaha shipped out &.331.4O0 bushels of
grain. Only five cities In the United States
exceeded this. During the same period
Kansas City Flipped o.ily 31,000,000 bushels;
Duluth, about the same amount; Minne
apolis. M.CM'.yuO bushels; Pt. IyOuls. 46.0C0.00V
bushels. When this market, after having
been in existence only three years, has at
tained sixth place us a shipping point and
fifth place as . a receiving point, we can
nuraiy ne uiamea ror reeling very op
timistic as to the position that we will
have when our tributary territory has had
the bejietit of the development It mutt get
duiluic the next ten years und when we
have cured the discriminations In rates
that bar us from reaping the full advantage
of the development of that territory.

Omaha Leads Others of Class In Per
centage of Increase In
While the total amount of money repre
sented by building operations In Omaha In
1906 Is not as large as In several other
cities of similar size, yet the percentage
of Increase In the last few years has
been greatest In Omaha. So says C. F.
Harrison, who has secured data from the
offices of the building Inspector of the va
rious cities.
To date this year, permits aggregating
considerably above $4,000,000 and represent
ing 1.070 structures, have been taken out
In Omaha, while In 1903 permits for less
than half that many buildings aggregated
$1.0S'!,867. Omnha's building operations
doubled In 1904, and again In 1906, while
this year will equal. If It does not ex

Bluffs 8treet Railway company at Its an
nual meeting.
This announcement was made by C. W.
Wattles, vice president of the company,
upon his return from New York Monday
morning. In company with General Man
ager Smith, W. V. Morse, Frank Hamilton
and Mr. Tyler, Mr. Wattle went to New
York last week to meet with tho eastern
directors of tho street railway company
At this meeting tliu directors decided to
lay aside enough money for the content
plated work, Which will also Include $260,000
for the Increase In the power plant and the
building of the four substations, one hi
Benson one at Florence, one at Hellevu
and a portable one at Lake Mauawa.
"The matter of deciding these routes Is
left to a committee of the local directors
who, with engineers, will go to work Tuesa
day morning and go over the ground, afttr
which a meeting will be held and a decision
reached ag to where these extensions will
be built.", said Mr. Watllaa.
"We are going Into the Interurban busi
ness and will build lines out from Omaha
wherever we think the business will pay
the Interest on the money invested. The
directors In the east agreed with us that
the time had come to build out of Omaha
and during the next two years we will build
all the lines we can secure rails and ma
terial for. The money has been set aside
and work will begin at once. The Omaha
extensions also will be pushed as fast as
Enough Money Is Set Aside.
While Mr. Wattlea did not state the exact
amount which had been set aside, he said:
'It Is not because the amount Is nig
gardly that I do not care to state It, for I
will say that a sufficient amount has been
appropriated to do all the work which can
be done for the next two years.
"We also will enlarge our car shops so
that wo will In time be able to build all
our cars, but we expect to expand so fast
during the next two years that we will not
try to rely on the output of our shops ex
cept as auxiliary to the cars we buy.
'When the Omaha contingent was able
to go to New York and assure the eastern
directors that no unreasonable hindrances
was expected from the city council or the
people we had no difficulty In getting the
money necessary to make the extensions."
'The pass on the street railways of
Omaha Is a thing of the past and after the
first of the year every person who rides
must pay. Since the passage of the ElklnB
law there Is a great feeling against the
Issuance of passes and because of the In
terstate nature of our Council Bluffs line
we will discontinue passes."
Mr. Wattles did not say where the six to
ten extensions of the Omaha lines would be
made, but he said the engineer and the
committee would go over the routes and
these would be soon announced.
