This statement is on the authority of

Work already laid out Is of a nature
which shows that Omaha Is becoming a

an eye to Immediate use. Now the men

being particularly noticeable In lumber.

more than two-thirds of the brick put Into

Neither a scarcity nor an oversupply of

ant conditions in the building world, the
dove of peace with a sprig of laurel In Its
bill hovers over capital and labor. A die
position Is noted on the part of contractors
to be liberal In considering of what hire the
laborer Is worthy.
Wages paid to men In the building trades
In Omaha now are as follows: Masons,
6J'4 cents; carpenters, 30 to 46 cents, ae
cordlng to ability; Iron setters, 4TS cents;
plasterers. K24 cents; lathers, 43 cents;
tile setters, SO cents; plumbers and steam

SO cents; painters, 46 cents; sheet metal
workers, 40 to 50 cents; electricians, 40 cents;
laborers and hodcarrlers, 3 to 30 cents.
These prices are all for an eight hour day.
Much building of suburban residence
will be done during the summer, particu
