TIMELY REAL ESTATE GOSSIP
Omaha Dealers Lead in Urging State
Guarantee of Deposits.
K0VE AGAINST POSTAL, BANKS
Heal Kstnle Men Declare Prices of
Property Have IVot Declined
llurlnar No-Called Drvrrk
loa In Rnaiueas.
In Nebraska the Omaha Krai Estate ex
change is taking tha lead in urging soma
I'glnlutlon looking toward Iho stats guar
anteeing the deposits In flnancal Institu
tions chartered by the banking board. Next
to the outlook for spring and summer bus
iness, the question of the slate guarantee
ing tha deposits is the most alwnrhlng topic
with members of the exchange, and Gov
ernor Sheldon's visit t'p Kansas at the time
the bills were before the legislature of thnt
state for guaranteeing deposits Is thought
to he the result of the agitation of the
Onwha Real Kstute exchange.
Tim actual condition Is that some dealers,
feu Aug the postul savings bank bill In
congress will become a law and Injure the
savings and kau associations and the busi
ness of the state banks, seek to get state
las passed guaranteeing the deposits of
stateliisttutltns, which wlll put them
somewhere near on a par with the poxtal
having 1unks, should such Institutions be
established by congress. Another object
sought ts to lie able to use the state laws
guaranteeing bank deposits to defeat the
postal savings bank measures, by arguing
that the postal banks are unnecessary, as
the state stands behind the dcimstts of
state banks, which they propose to claim
Is "Just as good as" the federal govern
ment lslng behind the deposits, as It would
lie if postal banks were cMablishetl.
The Interest of real estate dealers In the
question centers about the fact that when
there Is no niortguge money In the state
banks and savings and loan associations
the buuinesa suffers, as a large per cent of
the city sales are made wholly on the con
dition that a loan can be secured and the
purchaser given an opportunity to pay out
on the installment plan. The real estate
dealers want the money in the state banks
and trust companies, where It can be. loaned
on the securities In which they deal. In
the nations) banks It la cumparatlvel-use-less
to the real estate world, and they be
hove the west nmst have millions of money
vhloh can be loaned on real estate as In
vestors In the west have realA-slate Instead
f bondu, which are held In tne east and
used with all bank.
The Kansas bill which proposes to give
a feeling of security to depositors In pan
icky tl.nua, by permitting the organisation
uf "bank deposit Insurance companies," la
ridiculed by Omaha real estate dealers.
A. P. Tufcey. who started the agitation In
Oaiaha, bvrillng tu Governor Sheldon
asking if fi ..la possible te call a special
atssion of the legislature to pass bank de
posit guarantee lawa. eald concerning the
Kuuaas deposit insurance bill: "That will

or at leaat no better. Tho resources of the
great states of tho union must be placed
behind our banks, which are considered
now semi-public Institutions."
Many of the real estate dealers who op
posed the endorsement of t lie postal sav
ings hank bill are urging the guarantee jf
deposits by the state. They explain that
the stu.tu guarantee laws are but stepping
stones to the postal savings bank system,
but they believe the state banks should
have the advantage of a state gunrantee
before tho government opens banks with
a guarantee behind deposits which would
not be equalled anywhere In the world.
Real estate dealers are on record as op
posed to the proposition before tho park
board to use any part of the fund created
In Douglas county from tho Inheritance
tax to Improve the parks. The fund Is to
be used for tho Improvement of country
roads, outside the city limits, and It is
believed that any attempt to secure per
mission from tho legislature to use the
fund for parks will be met with such op
position that tha Inheritance tax fund will
go to the state and be distributed equally
among the counties of Nebraska, aa rail
road taxes have been dlxlrlhuted regard
less of the value of rftllroad property In
the counties. The real estate dealers de
sire that the Inheritance tax fund, sure
to be larger In Douglas county than in any
other county of tho state, be kept at home
and used for the I m pro vemeht. of Douglas
county roads outside the limits of Omaha.
That Otnaha does not share the general
"depression" In the real estate world
throughout the lTnlted Plates ts the tes
timony of the leading dealers:
"Not a dollar'a worth of property has
been sold by our offico since November 1,
at a discount. We are getting even better
prices than last year. C. C. George of
George & company.
"I could not tell you how large our
buh'liioss has been during the month of
January, but it was ticlter than last year
and the values the same aa we asked be
fore t lie financial trouble." D. V. Bholcs.
"Just the same. Selling lots at the same
prices and Just as many of them." Uyron
llaHtins of Hastings A Heydeil.
"Don't see a dollar of loss In sight for
those who invested In -real estate, but
rather tendency to advance In prices."
H. U. Jordan of the Pyron Heed oompuny.
"The demand for city properly for In
vestment la evidence that the prices are
not on the decline." President W..T.' Gra
ham of the Omaha Real Estate exchange.
Such expressions and positive statements
have been motto In reports published In
eastern financial papers, giving the sum
mary of the real estate situation In the
country aa follows:
"Throughout the I'nlted Stales all classes
of real estate ,have suffered losses in value
as a result of ,lhtt existing buslntsa de
pression. These losses are as real and In
many casea as great as the losses recorded
In stocks and bonds listed on the New York
Stock exchange." s
The general situation in Omaha Is sum
mod up aa "entirely satisfactorily," by al
most every member of the, mal estate ex
change. A number of large tracts have
been thrown on the market and the prices
asktd for lots and acreage tracts would
not Indicate that anyone had lost money
as a result of Investing In Omaha real s-
lata. Other tracts may be opened laut

MANDAMUS TO TEST FEES
Mult Flleil by W. II. llerdiuan to Con
test Itlgbt of "District
A mandamus suit to test the right of the
clerk of the district court to refuse to file
court decrees without the payment of the
costs was filed In district court Saturday
morning by W. II. llerdman.
Several days ago Mr. llerdman presented
a decree of divorce for filing In the case of
Mollio Hoy against James W. Hoy.' Dja
trlct cferk Smith refused to file It unless
the filing fee was paid. As the costs under
the decree were assessed against Mr. Roy,
llerdman refused to. pay them. The case
will bo a test of tho-most Important of the
questions In controversy In relation to the
collection of fees in advance In the clerk's
of l Ice.
A test on another phase of the same, ques
tion will come up before Judye Redick
Wednesday morning. W. W. Slabaugh is
seeking an order of the court to compel
District Clerk Smith to file a motion for
the defendant In a case In which, the de
posit fee of $2.50 was not paid. The fee Is
anthorlxed by an order of the court, but
Judge Slabaugh contends .the c lerk cannot
charge more than the statutory filing fee
of 10 rents for each document filed.

An Omaha architect, who has designed
more flats and apartment houses for this
city than any other local architect, de
clares that the present year will see still
more building of houses of this type than
ever. He bases his prediction upon fuels
and figures, and alo upon the fad, which
he says ts true, that Oinului has now
reached that stage of growth where land
values have arisen to suih a figure that
big yards are expensive luxuries and people
demand homes reasonably near to the
business center at moderate rents. Tho
n suit is inevitably t lie apartment house,
that device ot modern civilization t.)
house people in small space and yet give
them t he conveniences and the luxuries de
manded by the people of the present day.
"The demand for this class of buildings
is steady and the present demand far ex
cel ds the supply," said the architect.
"This Is the iane In spite of the fait that
rrr.ts for d. nirahle flalH and apartment
houses are high. For the man who wants
an investment for his mom y there is noth
ing more attractive than a w.ll situated

house.' A building of this hind is never

A man has just completed a house on
North Twentieth street which is the result
of Bludy on the problems of how to have
a neat , house on an ordinary lot and still
have a place to keep chickens and enjoy
the fruits of a garden In the summer lime.
Tlie lot on which the house is built Is
thirty-seven feet wide. The house stands
back from the fctreet about twenty feet. It
is two stories high and about thlrly-flvr
feet In length, exclusive of the ten-foot
lean to. It has a largo (Kirch al the front
and part of one side as well as a rear
Iimtiad of tlie usual bare back yard found
in the average house the yard Is artistic
ally laid out. An arbor runs from the rear
door, back curving as it goes, thus cutting
off a view of the chicken yard and horse
shed on the extreme rear of the lot. The
arbor Is to be covered with a grape vine
when the vines have grown. Outside the
arbor trees are planted. They are not use
less shade trees, but trees which will he
useful as well as ornamental by bearing
fruit of various kinds. There is ample
space for a garden In the summer. A
seven-foot di iveway runs from front to the
rear along ore side of the lot.

the good things of the country nnd I'm In
