losjee of the M. C. Peters Mill company
by the firs which destroyed the alfalfa
meal mill two weeks ago have all been ad
Justed and the company Is turning its at
tention to the problems of reconstruction.
Though President Peters is not ready as
yet to make a definite announcement of his
plans, stockholders in the company say the
mill will be rebuilt in Omaha on the old
site as soon aa possible, as the company
la losing a great deal of money because of
the Inability to fill orders.
The stock Is owned by Mr. Peters and
many business men, all of whom are vi
tally Interested in Omaha and Its future
aa a commercial and manufacturing center.
The demand for the alfalfa meal has made
the industry an Important one and stock
holders say there Is no doubt as to the
mill being erected In the city.
Some trouble tras been experienced when
the mill waa In operation In securing suf
ficient alfalfa to keep It running. Many
times Mr. Peters said he could secure but
one or two cars of the raw material when
he wanted from ten to twenty. Arrange
ments have been gradually made with
growers to cure the hay as It should be
cured to make a sweet and high class
meal and when the new mill is opened
it is said the trouble of securing raw ma
terial will be largely overcome.

CHURCH PROTESTS LICENSE
BEFORE DISTRICT COURT
Rev. W. E. Todd and Home of His
Members Oppose the Neber
An effort is being made, in district court
before Judge Troup to get thrown out the
license granted Charles Neber toconduct a
saloon at 2229-31 Leavenworth street.
The license was allowed by the Board of
Fire and Police commissioners Maroh IS
following a protest by property owners.
Prominent among these protestants was
the pastor. Rev. W. E. Todd, and members
of the Third Presbyterian church.
When the board came to vote on the
question two members sidestepped, two
voted In the affirmative and one In the
negative. A. W. Jefferls and W. W. 81a
baugh, attorneys for the opponents of the
license, assert that a license granted by
only two affirmative votes will not stand.
J. P. Breen represented Neber, the sa
loon keeper, before the board and la still

The caae of the little Robinson boy Is
peculiar. Up to a short time ago his eyes
showed no symptoms of weakness. Grad

fellow is now totally blind. But that has
not dampened his ambition. He Is deter

blindness and says he will be a newspaper
man or writer some day. Though but 10
years of age he has written some com
positions which would be a credit to a
much older boy and better than most
people ever write.
"The school has been run too econom
ically," said Dr. Robinson. "The state of
Nebraska appropriates money for these
Institutions Intending that it shall be used
to give out unfortunate, children training

ELEVEN CARLOADS- OF WOOL
that Much Has Reached Omaha Since
Saturday, More Coming.
PRICES ABE ON THE UP SCALE
Growers "hipping to Local Pleat Are
Golaa- to Hold Oat for Twenty
Flva or Twentr-SIs Cents
Eleven carloads of Wyoming wool have
arrived at the plant of the Omaha Wool
and Storage company since Saturday morn
ing and more has been shipped. The prices
of wool have a decided tendency to ad
vance and there every Indication th.it
those who store In Omsha for a few months
will reap Urge profits'
Growers shipping to Omsha are going to
hold out for 16 or 2i cents.
The wsrehouse In Chicago Is not com
pleted snd Is for stockholders only, which
leaves the average wool growers out in
the dark. Omaha bankers sre msking the
ssme terms as lsst yesr, which were "all
the money you need with wsrehouse cer
tificates ss collateral at market rates."
Arrangements have been made by the
managers of the Omaha wsrehouse to In
sure the wool placed In storsge; the rates
for warehouse facilities are lower than
elsewhere, snd It coats growers 2 cents per
hundred less to ship to Omaha and then
forward to the east when the clip Is sold
than it does to send the wool to Chicago
for storsge and forward it from there.
Wool dealers and manufacturers are look
ing for the top of the wool boom. It does
not appear that the high price has yet been
reached. The growers who contracted at
15 and 18 cents early In the season are now
delivering for that price, while dealers In
Boston are selling the wools In advance of
their arrival for 21 to 26 rents per pound.
Chance at Million Pounds.
The Omaha company has received in
formation that two of the largest individual
clips in Montana aggregating some 1.000,000
pounds each, could have been bought for
22 cents per pound. This week 23 cents
per pound wss offered by wire snd refused.
As 24 cents per pound wss paid last week
for the Hervio clip In Montana It Is thought
that little if any more good wool will be
secured for less than 24 cents. From 14
to 24 cents are the ruling prices at both
Casper and Rawlins.
One authority estimates that the landed
scoured prlcer lnr Boston of wools bought
In Wyoming, Montana and Idano will reach'
70 to 75 cents and that buyers will have to
get 80 cents per pound when selling the
scoured product to get out with a profit.
The wool growers are going to make
money this year and those who store In
Omaha are going to make mors money.
Building Inspector Sayi if Council
Will Not Finance Him His
Hands Are Tied.
Dilapidated and unsafe structures In
Omaha will be allowed to stand and con
tinue a menace to occupants or passersby
and remain eyesores unless the council will
give City Building Inspector Withnell sn
appropriation enabling him to tear them
The council neglected to appropriate at
the beginning of the year any money for
this purpose and tne building Inspector's
hands are tied. He says there are many
old shacks in the city that ought to be
raxed immediately, but he cannot order
them demolished because he hss no money
with which to do the work In case the
owners refuse to do it themselves. In
other years he has had an appropriation
to work with and wherf the owner of a
condemned building refused to raze It, the '
building inspector has stepped In and
"This department cannot be run on
wind," said Mr. Withnell, "and the first
thing- the new council will be asked to do
will be to vote us an appropriation. 1 am
going to ask for S3,00, and this will en
able us to get rid of about lnO buildings
which are In a dangerous condition. The
cost of razing dilapidated buildings is taxed
against the realty and eventually the
money will all be returned to the city."
