Omaha hss had thirteen maps lit tta bls-
tory and the aba and flow of tha move
IfiLnient In real estats especially auburbaa
YTealty is In a meaaura marked by tha
requoncy with which these mapa have
been changed. In tha beginning- of Omaha
the map ahowed rather what the promo
ters hoped than what what really existed,
and for this reason aome of the things
. which appear on tha earlier editions axe
f lust In the later ones.
The first map of Omaha, called tha A.
D. Jonea map, was made la 1KA. It In
cluded within Ita borders LI square mile.
It covered ground from what Is now Sixth
treat to Twentieth and tha atreeU In tha
Immediate vicinity of Farnam.
Tha aecond Jonas nap, made tha next
year, when tha tewnslte company had been
formed and tha members had joined lands
In a emmon holding, was an aspiring
showing ef five square antles, and with
this tract tha town waa formally ilnoor
po rated.
Tha third map la known as tha Poppleton
Byare map, made In U6T by tha lata A.
J. Poppleton and "W. N. Byare, later
founder of tha Rocky Mountain News at
Denver. This map ahowed about six square
miles and la roughly cave red by tha "orig
inal townslte" part af current maps.
The fourth map waa made by Poppleton
A Dyers In 1868 and waa similar to tha
earlier one, with the exception of tha ad
dition of Grandview. Orandvlew waa really
Omaha's Bret addition. Originally It waa
a townslte adjoining Omaha an tha south.
It waa laid out by Dr. A. B. Moore, and
the federal land laws of tha day ara said
to account for tha presence af two towns
' so closely In touch.
First to Show Growth.
The fifth map waa tha O. F. Davis map
of ISM, and, with the exception of Orand
vlew shows the first expansion of the city
proper. From the original lines Pierce,
Nicholas, First and Twenty-third streets
the corporation boundary had expanded to
Thirtieth on the west, the neighborhood of
lilnney street on the north and Wool
worth avenue on the south. Capitol addi
tion, platted by O. F. Davla for John H.
Kellum, appears for the first time on thla
map. Thla addition waa laid out In
"acreage property" and has been subdi
vided since so that of the original plat
little, remains. In preparing the plat Mr.
Davts made no survey, as the owners did
not consider the land worth the expendi
ture of tha money, and the acouracy of
the government survey was assumed,
which was all right for acreage, but since
the land has assumed a "front-foot" value
there has been much question as to some
lines, as tha first surveyor's figures do not
always prove correct. Armstrong's addt
snn. Nelson's addition and Millard Cald
well's addition are ahown on thla map.
The sixth map waa that by Byron Reed,
dated 1870. On this appears Credit Foncler
addiUon, platted In 1S67. .surveyed by Wil
liam Cleburn, who Is now .living In Ken
tucky, and West Omaha, platted the aame
year. ' Omaha's corporation lines expanded
between the date of tha Davla imap and
t:AU 'of the Reed, tha boundaries on tha
lifter being Pratt street on the north.
hlrty-slxth street -on the west to a point
uth of Center street, where tha line ran
ast to Twertty-fourth, thence south to
Xjoeurt and east to the river. This map
shows Kountze & Ruth's addition tor tha
nrst tlma, aouth of Howard street, west
af Sixteenth. This addition was surveyed
by N. J. Paul, now a banker at St. Paul,
Neb. .

Maps of (ha Boom Days.
Tha "Mayne" map of 1KS8, prepared by
Ilnsewater Chrysler In 1WR. Is the tenth
map af tba city. It shows tha anxiety of
people to buy Omaha real estate, even
though city taxes were not Included In
the deal, as the "additions" far exceed
the nrea ,f the corporation lines. This
waa corrected In 1HST and the Roaewater
Chrysler map of 1 exhibits Omaha
as having come Into Its own, the cor
poration lines having been placed In thetr
present position and Omaha Including
twenty-five square miles within Its bor
ders. The twelfth map was Issued by Mnlr ft
Oaylord In 1891 from drawings of Rose
water Jb Chrysler and the thirteenth map
by O. W. Craig In 1!X.
In a plat book, but no map, was
Tha first citizens of Omaha apparently
had mora Interest In making tha town
grow than In 'keeping a record ' af Its
growth, hence there was more or less neg
lect of efflolal records. Close record af
land selling by metes and sounds was not
deemed essential to the prosperity af tha
holder, and for this reason perhaps no
plat of tha original town was filed.
The first plat filed In the afflcee of tha
register of deeds was recorded March t,
1SS6. It shows the claim of tha Winter
Quarter or Florence Town company. The
first plat having t do with tha dtr of
Omaha was filed March 23, lffifi. It Is tha
Council Bluffs & Nebraska Ferry com
pany's addition to Omaha 'City and cov
ered a tract north ef We aster street, ana
and one-half blocks, 'lying between tha
lithographed plat of Omaha and tha plat
of Jeffries' addition to Omaha City, but
Mr. Jeffries evidently did not think his
addition was worth itha recorder's faa and
memery alone recalls It location.

moters were Impressed with the advan

later oocupled by a court house. Jefferson
square was spared that fate, but "tha

Omnha's first addition "with a park"
waa Hnnscom park, platted by A. J. Han
scoin and James Megeath about 1871. The
city was given the park on condition that
It be Improved and a horse car line car
ried "suburban residents" who desired to
live around the shady grove.
The first "parked" addition was Bemts
park, laid out in J889. For some reason
the park was forced, to await recognition
of Its advantages, but tha Idea finally be
came popular and In modified form has
been adopted by .others.
In Its expansion Omaha has absorbed
two towns, the first being Orandvlew and
the second one Saratoga. At the present
time It presses upon the borders of four
Bouth Omaha, Dundee, Benson and Florence.
Attempts to Stay tha Prosrreas

Although the fraud has been exposed
many times within ths last three yearsj
tha prayer chain Incorrectly attributed to
tha Protestant Episcopal bishop af Maasa.
chusetts Is still In being, frightening some
persons and bothering a good many. News
paper appeals, personal letters and every
other effort made by Bishop Lawrence to
stay Ita progress have proved ineffectual
The gullible and timorous religious publlo
la sufficiently large to keep the letters go

A somewhat similar, but far mora seri
ous chain, or, as tha English term it,
"snowball" leter, la causing great Injury
to the Barnardo Homes, one of the no
table charities of London. Soma tlma prior
to Dr. Barnardo's death. In 1905, a Miss
Robertson, betnsT sincerely Interested In
the welfare of tils phllanthroplo work, sent
out an appeal for aid without consulting
tha management of tha homes. Tba erlg
lnul letters contained tha usual request
that copies be mailed to friends of tha
recipients. In Its Orat form tha letter was
not entirely unobjectionable, but since Dr.
Barnardo's death tha phraseology has been
changed, and now. In the words of tha
managers at the homes, it Is "highly mis
leading and actually doing harm." One
of the allegatlona In tha letter now circu
lating Is that tha homes must close their
doors, which Is directly contrary to tha
80 serious has been tha effect of thla
chain letter that tha homes have been
obliged to advertise to counteract It Re
cently In the London Times tha council
of the charity declares Ita desire to put
the letter out of circulation entirely and
aays It "will take It aa a favor If all
readers of tha Times will aid In tha en
deavor." While the missive has had wide
circulation. Its results seem to have been
scant, for the council says, "support Is
urgently needed." Ths work of the homes
Is very great, 8.000 boys and girls being
cared for In them and tha dally food bill
alena being 11,209. ,
The Barnardo letter waa not Inspired by
malice or 111 will, but Ita originator hoped
to accomplish much good by this agency.
The prayer chain may have been the work
of a Joker er of a religious enthusiast. It
will be lntereatlng to watch tha progress
of tha English effort to end a nuisance.
Judging from the experience of Bishop
Lawrence, It Is likely to be a long time
before tha council of the' Barnardo Homes
hears ths laat of Miss Robertson's well
meant, but Ul advised attempt to fill tha
treasury. New York Bun,

In fine condition physically and mentally,
his aye bright, his mind clear, his con
viction sturdy. He deeply deplores tha ex
isting conditions and the socialistic ten
dencies of the country. Especially he de
piareo the conditions now .existing -In the
democratic party.
"Mr. Cleveland's pre-eminence Is attested
everywhere; his opinions are sought by
conservative men. While ha la reserved In
his expressions there Is no mistaking the
convictions faa holds regarding the existing
agitations. He believes in the cure of
evils and would go to tha root of them, but
I believe I correctly Interpret Mr. Cleve
land, when I say ha does not believe In
agitations misleading many In the direction
of dangerous policies for state and na
tional government.
"Ha talked particularly and without tha
slightest suggestion from me, about the
life and work of Edward Rosewater. He
asked also about his sons. All this Indi
cated, besides a marvelous memory, a broad
sympathy, a sympathy that Is not bounded
by political or mercenary lines. This great,
big-breasted, big-hearted man unconsciously
paid a fine tribute to his own character In
the many kind words he spoke about Mr.
Candidates for Preside-y.
Regarding tha outlook for p.esldentlal
Umber. Dr. Miller said:
"Hughes Is undoubtedly a prominent
figure and a promising man. I have not
given the situation sufficient thought to
endorse entirely the opinion of Henry
Watterson that Hughes will be the next
man nominated by the republicans. He Is
strong, though, for two reasorts; first, he
Is Independent, industrious and honest, and
second, he Is supported by the president of
the United States, both directly and indi
rectly, "But there ls Taft who looms up a bkg
figure polltloally as well as physically and
I hardly see how Roosevelt can divide his
time between the two. In many etales
Fairbanks has a powerful following.
"President Roosevelt now enjoys an al
most universal popularity because of bis
agitation against corporations. But I be
lieve there Is an undertone and an under
tow among conservative people and that
when the Issue is tried snd men speak their
sentiments there will be sheet-lightning all
around the sky."
Dr. Miller , doee not share the opinion ef
B. H. Harrlman'a critics, but holds, on the
other band, that hs has done more for the
middle west than any other man ever did.
"I care nothing for tha high rolling,
spectacular - finance of Wall street," said
Dr. Miller. "Mr, Harrlaian Is morally no
worse than the men whom he beats In the
battle there Is be? The man who wins In
the Tltanto struggles ef Wall street Is as
good as he who loses. But I know that no
man since the white race settled on the
western hemisphere has ever done even
one-half as much as B. H. Harriman has
dons In nine years for the material pros
perity and development of the transmlsais
slppl and Rooky mountain states. I stick
to that proposition because It la baaed on
Indisputable facts." ' "

asked a little boy at the door of a boarding
house on Twenty-fifth and Dodge streets
Saturday moraine The boy was accom
panied by two other boys, one of whom
was crying bitterly.
"Cbms In, boys," said the woman and the
trio "came lt" to wait until the money
should be forthcoming. But the woman
telephoned to Probation Officer Bernstein
and In a few moments he was on the spot.
Ths boys cried In real earnest when they
found they were In the hands of ths law.
They confessed that the dead baby sister
existed only In thSAr resourceful minds and
that the, money they were getting was
meant to be used in the purchase of bails,
bats and uniforms.
The boys had a large sum in nickels,
dimes and quartsra. Ths probation office
