Exceeds That Flcsre.
For a llttlo New Year's present. Council
Bluff will give Omaha another Implement
house, which will add more than IJOU.ono to
tha Imploment and machinery business ot
thS city annually.
O. JE. Glnm-van, manager of the Peru
Flew and Implement company, which has
maintained a hmisd In Council ltluffi for
number of years, announced Wednesday
that ths company will move Its business
to Omaha and orx-ri an office and sample
rooms in "Implement Row." The company
now bandies the line of the Peru Plow and
TV' heal company of Peru, III., and In ad
dltlon to this, vehicles and ' Implements of
When the company moves to Omaha tha
"agency" business will be discontinued and
only.tbs products of the Peru Plow and
Wheel company carried. These consist of
plows and trvck wagons.
Tha capital stock of the Peru company
Is 1300,000, bat Mr. Olnnevan cxprcts to
do a kulsness of more than .0O,iX) annually
The coming; of this company adds another
to ths Increasing list of Implement houaea
In Omaha and fives rite to the prediction
of ths Commercial club that Omaha Is
gradually becoming the Implement market
of ths west. The business done by lmple
anent bouses this year In the city Is consid
erably In excess of 19,500,000, though It
was 12,010.000 more last year.
Larger Baslness In lOOO.
That ths coming season will see tliu
Omaha Implement and vehicle houses do a
business of close to tl5.000.oco is said by
Implement men to be almost a certainty.
They have reduced stock, assisted retailers
to "clean up" old lines until It Is Bull
that scarcely a retailer In the state Is now
carrying a car load of wugons. The buying
will begin soon after the first of tha New
Tsar., and Omaha looks forward to a
record year in the Implement business.
Houses In Omaha havu practically no
boundaries on their "trade empire." In the
Big Horn Basin of Wyoming, In the pjtatj
fields of Colorado; up the Yellowstone
river' Where the government reclamation
service is at work, around Billings and In
the sugar beet fields. Implements "bought
in Omaha" may be seen on many farms,
and 'they run from humane horse collars
to harvesting machinery and wagons.
Montana Is demanding Implements from
Omaha that lomo of the exorbitant frelg.it
charges may he eliminated. To get a
lumber wagon from Illinois common points
coats as high as $30 In freight charges at
points in Montana, and the farmers there
are looking for a "near market" such as

Mayor Jim and his political organisation

C. H. Wltbnell, building Inspector, and
L. B. Johnson, president of the council,
announced Tuesday that they would not

'he received 1,400 more votes for building
inspector than did Mr. Dahlman for mayor.
It does not follow that he would get as
many votes for the chief position. He
has pot made up his mind whether to run
for building Inspector again or not, but
ha says he will not be a candidate for
mayor under any circumstances.
