Kawtown Tries to Fool
qn Its Butter Quotations
Shame on Kansas City. The Omaha bit
ter men say that the naughty Kawtown
dealers are trying to delude the poor but
opulent farmer Into celling his dairy
product to them at a low price by sending
out incorrect quotations.
Kansas City, lor Instance, remarks in
public quotations that the price to retailers
Is M cents a pound. Now, this is very
wrong. Indeed, so say the Omaha dealers.
For on private advlcea they learn that the
real price is A rents for creamery butter,
Incidentally the same as the Omaha quo
tation for butter In pound prints and car
tons delivered lo the retailers.
"Just a bear movement, we don't pay any
attention to the Kansas City market." said
an Omaha butter man. "If we aell them
any butler ll ii at Elgin rates, that's all."

A. L. Moliler, vice president and general
manager of the Union Pacific, that the
road is to soon issue a call for bids to build
a new car shop and planing mill plant,
which will cost approximately S400.000. This
will mean that the Union Pacific will ex
pend about S3.000.000 during the coming year
on improvements in Omaha.
Referring to the proposed extension to the
f i eight houne. which has been discussed
for some time, Mr. Mohler said, "We are
going to let the public build that for us.
They can build It without expending a
cent, but It would cost us more money
than we can afford to lay out at this time.
We will be busy for a year or two erecting
our new office building and the new car
shops and planing plant, which will neces
sitate an outlay of about 12,000,000. We are
soon to call for bids for the new car build
ing and planing mill, which will cost ap
proximately S4O0.O00, with the machinery in
