W. Llnlnger In Sunday's Bee of January
2T I beg to call your attention tp a mis
statement In that part referring to Solon
Borglum. The article states thtit Mr.
Llnlnger "discovered" and sent him to tlio
best schools of Europe. Mr. Llnlnger's
purchase of a large number of J. G. Horg
lum's paintings enabled the latter to go tp
Europe. Solon Borglum, the sculptor,
however, owes the rank he now occupies
In the world of art to himself alone, h
studies In Europe having been made pos
sible by his success at the Cincinnati Art

arships, the last being the "European

OMAHA, Jan. 29-To the Editor of The
Bee: No name waa more completely a
household word In Omaha forty years ago
and none has been more faithfully remem
bered since than that Of Webster Snyder,
superintendent of construction of the Union
Pacific under Durant. The Herald of thOBe
days used to call him the "Little Giant,"
and J. 8. Casement said to me at the, semi
centennial celebration of Omaha, what I
always knew, that he was one of the ablest
railroad men In the United States. I ask
The Bee to print a part of a letter received
from htm a day or two ago which shows
what manner of man he Is as well as any
thing else could. Mr. Snyder writes from

residence there. I quote his kind remem
brance and messages to his old Omaha
friends, as follows:

heart dally goes out to the friends In
Omaha with whom I spent so many pleas

youth, in my struggles to stand up for
After expressing his grief at "the I part
ing of the old friends of the '9s," Mr.
Snyder saya:
Omaha la mora loyal to its old set

I have ever been located. I did hope
to visit your city before either of us should

hopes of visiting Ossaha again. Mrs.
Snyder la still In good health, and always

three sons, all doing well, and three hearty

The promotion of W. H. Murray from
chief clerk to assistant general passenger
agent of the Union Pacific has stirred up
gossip as to other changes and promotions
to be made In-the passenger department
of that company. Ti.ese promotions, If
reports are to be accredited, wYtl be simply
along' the line of the Harrlman policy In
augurated in the management of the sys
tem of railroads and each road individu
ally, a policy that Is becoming general
with most railroads.
According to these reports E. L. Lomax,
now and for many years general passen
ger agent, will be made passenger traffic
manager; Gerrltt Fort now and for some
years assistant general passenger agent.
wiU be general passenger agent and W. H.
Murray, Just appointed assistant general
passenger agent will be assistant to Mr.
Fort.' Also rumor haa It that Alfred Dar
low, dean of advertising agents, will be
given a much broader field of operations;
that In addition to his present duties which
are comprehensive, he will be given au
thority and personal supervision over a
literary bureau to be created.
These reports cannot be verified, but they
are circulated In Omaha and In Chicago.
Mr. Lomax and Mr. Fort are both out of
the city just now.
Same Thin In Freight Offices.
A few yeara ago a similar change of this
sort waa made In the freight department of
the .Union Pacific. J. A. Munroe waa made
'freight traffic manager, E. II. Wood gen
eral freight agent, C. L. Lane first assist,
ant general freight agent and W. H. Gar
rett assistant general freight agent, and
this Is the system which prevails all along
the Harrlman management. So far aa Its
application to the passenger department la
concerned It is said to be resorted to at
this time to meet an exigency which can
not otherwise be met. The complicated
affairs of the office necessitate the absence
frcm local headquarters a great deal of
Messrs. Lomax and Fort, and owing to the
provisions of the new railroad rate law It
became necessary to have some official in
change of the passenger department higher
In rank than the chief clerk, ao that cer
tain pupera might be properly algned. Be
fore thut law waa enacted the, signature
of the chief clerk of the passenger depart
ment was sufficient, but the new law la
more particular about signatures. Mr.
Murray, aslstant general pasesnger agent,
will be In charge of the office when his
superiors are out of the city aad can, as
assistant general passenger agent, perform
the function required under the new law
which he could not perform aa chief clerk.
Who M ill Be Chief Clerk.
Who will be chief clerk to succeed Mur
ray la becoming quite a little question In
the headquarter clrclea. Four men are said
to be In line for the placePreston Davi
son, assistant chief clerk; Rate Clerk
Campbell, Charle 8. Myers and Caahler
Robert Smith. No action Is looked for un
til the return of Mr. Lomax or Mr. Fort.

Railroad and Orala Mea Watch It aa
the Proportional Rata
Will the Wabash refus to become a party
to the abolition of proportional ratea from
Omaha on grain originating east of the
Missouri river?
This question is a vital on to the grain
men of Omaha. They say the Wabash has
lot expressed Itself In the matter. Local
railroad men say no announcement from
the Wabash on the matter, haa reached
them and It la certain no tariff haa been
Issued. 11,1s said ths Wabash has blocked
the game of the Iowa roads on several
former occasions when they attempted to
abolish the proportionals and It Is hoped
this will be the case again. The Missouri
Pacific has usually stood with the Wabash,
which is not unnatural considering their
ownership, but this time It waa one of the
first to announce a new tariff.
This tariff will go Into effect March 1.
unless something happens to disarrange the
plans of the east and west roads. It will
turn Iowa grain to Chicago and StK Louis,
principally to the former place. Instead of
allowing It to come to Omaha.
Action la Knock on Omaha.
"It Is a rank action on the part of the
railroad," said A. B. Jaqulth of the Ex
change Grain company. "They are to
abolish proportionals under which we have
been working ever sines the Omaha Grain
exchange waa founded and under which
we had the advantage of Chicago on Iowa
garin. This advantage has been growing
with the development of the south aa a
consumptive corn . and oats' market and
with our active campaign for the business.
Gradually the Iowa shippers have been won
away from Chicago to Omaha,
"Chicago haa been hammering away to
get tht proportional ratea removed, and the
Burlington and Northwestern have always
been favorable to that city, as they are
after the long haul. Now they have ap
parently succeeded. The natural advan
tages we have In Iowa will amount to
nothing. The new tariffs will advance the
rates on Iowa grain through Omaha to
the south about ( cents a bushel and will
absolutely shut It out of Omaha. Only a
few stations near Council Bluffs will find
It profitable to ship to Omaha."
What will be done In case the Wabash
does not antagonize the plan la not known.
A meeting of the board of directors of
the Grain exchange will be called to con
sider the new tariffs within a tew days.

Mnyor Dahlman Wednesday morning re

days of patient waiting Mayor Jim haa
obtained a key with which henceforth he
will open the municipal portals when vis
itors knock for admittance. An old rusty

the gates closed, but hereafter when a
stranger 'waits without the gatea Mayor
Jim will proudly Walk down with his key
and awing Vide the gntes. It has not been
In keeping with municipal pride for the
mayor to Jerk off an old hoop when ad
mitting visitors. A new deal Is on. And
thereby hangs an incident?
At a Dahlman Democracy soiree laat
week a colored character of the city, known
as John Westbronk, showed the boys a
key he has carried alnoe war times. West
brook made the boast that hia key waa
the only one of Itg kind In existence and
that no one could .duplicate It. lie anld
the key waa uaed by Quantrell, the famoua
guerrilla, with whom Weatbrook traveled
when Quantrell's band committed auch
depredations aa the raid on Lawrence,
Kan. Weatbrook claimed the key waa
used to open the door of Quantrell's se
cluded quarters when at home and that he
(Weatbrook) was cuatodlan of that key.
Nick Dargacxewskl heard Westbrook's
remarks, took a careful- description of the
ke;-, but said nothing at the time.
Wednesday morning Dargacxewskl called
on the mayor and presented a clever du
plicate of the alleged Quantrell key. The
duplicate was cut Vfey hand out of a solid
piece of steel and Is a clever piece of
handiwork. Tha pattern of the key Is of
the old style, with a large eye on the
handle, and measures nearly .eight Inches
A lock Is to be made for the key and the

The Brucker gas tank ordinance waa
passed by the city council Tuesday night
by a vote of 7 to 6. This ordinance per
mits the construction of gas tanks and
other necessary Improvements by the
Omaha Gas company within the corporate
limits of the city In that section of ter
ritory bounded by Nineteenth, Twenty-second

tracks. Which section takes In the present
kite of the gas plant at Twentieth and
Center streets.
However, the motion to rescind the re
cent resolution of the council prohibiting
the granting of a permit to the gas com
pany to erect a new gas tank failed to
pass under a suspension of the rules,, upon
the objection of Mr. Zlmman, his objection
being based on the rule that it required a
two-thirds vote of the oounctl to suspend
the rules, the vote standing 7 to 6.
Bridges made an earnest appeal against
the passage of the ordinance, but to no
Seeks to Have Brldae Ordinance.
The report of the committee of the whole
recommending that the Bridges ordinance
do not pass was adopted. Zlmman sought
to have the report referred back to the
committee and then referred to Jhe light
committee, In view of the possibility of
the mayor vetoing the Brucker ordinance.
In which event the Bridges ordinance might
be passed later, and for the further reason
that the Brucker ordinance had not been
properly referred. Bedford moved the
adoption of the report of the committee
and opposed Zimman's motion on the
ground that he believed that Zlmman had
something up his sleeve. Zlmman denied
the aspersion, and stated that he would
not oppose the passage of the Brucker
ordinance. The roll call resulted In the
adoption of the report of the committee
as moved by Bedford.
