for the first time In a number of years,
eftiany real estate dealers who hahl or
nMMTit the most desirable vacant prop
erty in Omaha .are taking the position that
Is to be made In holding
Omaha real estate than In selling; there Is
an Indifference as to whether buyers are
to be had or not and prices which have
remained stationary for years nave sua
denly Uken sharp advances.
' With transfers of 11,200,000 to 11.500,000 each I
month a large amount of Omha property
Is sellln and there Is every Indication that
more advances are to follow. "It is harder
to get a buyer and seller to agree than
it hu been for a long time." says J. H.
Dumont of J. H. Dumont ft Son, real estate i
riealera. "Property is advancing and when
price are marked up after becoming well j
Vnnwn it la some times difficult to make
sale." Harry Tukey, who haa made some
bl deals In i vacant property lately, says,
"Three Dleces of property which I have had
an opportunity to sell this week, have been
marked ud unUl It will be a nttle more
difficult to make the sales, if Indeed they
are closed at all. Almost every piece of
vacant property which we have on pur list j
haa advanced In price during the last
month and It is hard to buy the better lots
In the best residence districts."
Amur the Investments made by buyers
from out In the state during the week, was
the sale to F. O. Uaher of Fairmont of the
George A. Wilcox home, at 1111 Park
avenue, by J. H. Dumont & Son for 8,000.
Mr. TTsher Intends moving his family from
Fairmont to Omaha and will make this
city his future home. He is a retired
farmer and stock raiser whose children
re either In school or employed at the
Fairmont Creamery company, here.
J. J. Donahue, chief of police, Is off the
market, having bought a residence of
Jamie D. Stowe during the week for $6,500.
Mr. Donahue has been looking at several
pieces of property and finally selected this j
residence, on Thirty-fifth street, between i
Farnam and Douglas streets.
Dr. C 8. hepard, who has built and
old a large number of residences during
the last two years, aold the new double
frame residence at Twentieth and Bpencer
streets to ft. F. Frerlcha for $4,000. Mr.
Frerlohs Is a grocer at Sixteenth and
Locust streets. .
WilUam Paxton, Jr., has begun selling a
number of residences In the Prairie Park
addition, between Twenty-seventh and
i Twenty-eighth streets on Ames avenue. One
of the .sales made during the week was a
fine residence to E. R. Thresher, manager;
of the Armour Grain company. Mr. Paxton
haa greatly Improved the property since last
Payne Bostwlck will open this week
the "Baltimore Park" addition on Frederick
street. Just over the .dividing line between
Omaha and South Omaha. The property Is
among the desirable pieces of vacant resi

first and Lake streets, which have been In
a way retarded because of the brick kilns
near, can now proceed, if the smoke from
the yards In any way Interfered. The
Smith Brick company has secured addi
tional property and besides enlarging the
kilns will errect a smoke stack costing
$10,000. This will make the kilns aa amall

No part of the olty is making more at

changes than along Florence boulevard.
which has been quiet for a number of
years. T. F. Stroud ha just completed a
beautiful home and Is now landscaping the
grounds. His lots are 200 feet on the
boulevard and about 400 feet in depth, well
covered with natural forest trees. The
rroperty compares favorably with . the
Rome MUler home, which haa long been
the moat attractive on the boulevard.
Harry Tavender, who recently sold his
residence to W. H. Dllworth of the Bur- j
Ungton Hgal department, haa bought a lot
on the Florence boulevard north of Ames
avenue and will begin at once the erection
of a large bungalow. Mr. Tavender's lot
is a part of the large tract known as
"Klerstead's park." which Is one of the
breathing spots In the city, overlooking
the now Carter park and, the Miesouli
river. It will eventually become the site
of many beautiful homes.
Opposite the Rome Miller residence to
the west Harrison & Morton are erecting
a large modern residence on lota aeventv.
: eight feet Jn front with a depth varying
from 16 to 100 feet. It overlooks the
MUler private park.
Tb property owners on Florence boule
vard have shown a liberality in putting
down a cement sidewalk alx feet In width
Instead of the usual width of four or five
feet. It Is proposed to extend this walk
north past the Stroud home, and at least
a far as Fort street. This will make the
toouleard about as popular with those tak
ing walkt as it Is with the drivers of car
riages and automobiles.

HACKMEN HAVE THEIR SAY
Complain that Rlald Holes of Inloa
Urpot Company Restrict
Omaha hackmen say the stringent rules
of the Union Depot company are reaponai
ble for the email number of carriages being-
kept at t'nlon station. They say the men
are not allowed in the depots, nor are the
carriages permitted to stand In front of
the station or on the company's land north
of the station.
Charles Ware, superintendent of the Ne- '
braska division of the L'nlon Pacific, says
that only such rules are enforced aa are
necessary and that the men are not barred
from the station, but simply are not per
mitted to solicit in the depot.
"If we permitted theie men to leave thtlr
hacks standing in front of the atatlon, they
would be In the way of carriages driving
up to the station." said Mr. Ware. We
have passed no rules to shut these people
out. but, on the other hand, have done
what we could for them. We have a
switch with a red light which the red caps
use to call a carriage whenever anyone
