Building Inspector Wlthnell has returned
from Llnooln, where be presented to Dep
uty Labor Commissioner Bush facts con
cerning the absence of fire escapes on
thlrty-fve Omaha buildings of three and
four stories. Mr. Bush went over Omaha
Wednesday afternoon with the building in
spector to look at these buildings.
Mr. Wlthnell said he had been ' handi
capped on account of the limitations of the
law regarding Are escapes. Of the thirty
flve buildings referred to twenty are owned
by nonresidents and, aooordlng to one case '
tested In the courts, a notice served on
the local agents to place fire escapes Is
The building Inspector Intends to urge
on the labor commissioner to have the law
modified to cover exigencies.
It was suggested to Mr. Wlthnell Wednes
day afternoon that In a case where an
apartment house or flat has no fire escape
according to law (there are twenty such)
he order the place closed until the law la
compiled with. Mr. Wlthnell Is looking
up the legal phase of this proposition and

JUST A TRICK OF Trll TRADE
Boot Estate Moo Tells Bow Two Mea
' Sold too Sane Res
taaraot. Real estate men observe many sharp
tricks In business. Barry Jordan of the
Byron Reed company likes to tell of one
which came under his observation.
A certain man, whom Mr. Jordan calls
Smith, for the sake of convenience, was
attempting to sell his restaurant to an out-of-town
man. whom Mr. Jordan calls Jones.
Smith's restaurant was a small one and he
had a ruinously light trade. Having
learned from Jones that the latter was t3
come to Omaha to look Into the restaurant
proposition on a certain day. Smith went
to about twenty-five friends and gave them
to cents each, asking them to drop In for
dinner at a certain hour and supper at a
certain hour. They came In as agreed,
and. of course,, Mr. Smith had Jones there
at the same time. When Jones saw the
rushing business done by the restaurant
ho couldn't buy It fast enough.
"And would you believe that Jones could
be mean enough?" asked Mr. Jordaa. as
he tells the story. "Jones sold that restau
rant to Black a few month later, and he
worked the same game that he bit on."
