President Bush Takes
Look at Belt Line
Pfes:dent Bush of the Missouri Pacific
was in Omaha a few hours yesterday
accompanied by a number of the company
oficlals and General Superintendent
XyBenardL The officials are out on a tour
itf inspection of the lines and came in
from Colorado, arriving at 4 o'clock. At
I o'clock they went for an automobile ride
over the city, visiting a number of points
on the Belt Line, returning In time to
leave at 8:90 o'clock on their special train
for the south,
j " President Bush said that he la pleased
with the work being done on the Omaha
Belt line in the way of preparing It for
the double track. The trip now being
made, he said, would Include all of the
Missouri Pacific and most of the Iron
Mountain lines of the old Gould system.
Generally, he found crops good and the
company having plenty of business, both
freight and passenger.
.The run Into Omaha was made In tn
night in order that a daylight inspection
might be made of the line between Omaha
and Kansas City, which has been almost
entirely rebuilt during the last year
Its Eeport on the
Nebraska Corn Crop
The Burlington's 'crop report for last
week, in dealing with the com crop of
Nebraska puts a lower estimate upon the
condition than at the time of the previ
ous weekly report The figures for last
week and the week previous are:
Division. Last Week. Previous Week.
Omaha 85 ' 96
Lincoln U " 78
Wymore 79 90
McCook 67 62
The foregoing report was made prior to
the recent rains and it Is estimated that
the added moisture of the last few days
may raise the percentage' of the condi
tion slightly. The damage. Is la claimed
was done by the dry, hot weather of
two weeks ago. ;'
The potato crop in the eastern and cen
tral portions of the state is estimated as
being better than an average. The same
is true on the Sterling division, where
th ytald is placed at from eighty to 275
bushels per acre, "The estimate on- the
Sheridan division Is from eighty to 300
bushels per acre, but in many sections of
th Alliance division the crop is said to
b almost a . failure, i running around
twelve bushel per acre. At' other. points
on the division farmers who ; are digging
(heir potatoes ssy they are turning out
as high as sixty to 100 bushels per acre.
All over the system (the range is re
ported in good condition and the grass
maturing rapidly, thus assuring the best
kind of winter feed for animals that run
at large during the cold season.
Old Copty Building
Vincent P. Chiodo probably will be given
the contract for wrecking or the old
Douglas county court house at 15,000. The
Board of County Commissioners ha
heard the several bidders for th work
and tentatively agreed to let Chiodo have
the contract, he being the lowest bidder.
He agrees to have the building completely
removed by January 30 if he is given pos
session of it by October t. F. O. Johnson,
the next lowest bidder, offered to do the
work for ,
Collection of Tolls
'City Attorney Rlne has ruled that the
Water board cannot collect from the city
for water used in city parks. He says
the water plant belongs to (the city and
that $100,000 is appropriated annually to
meet expenditures that might otherwise
fc paid by the city for water. This de
cision forestalls the Water board from
coiliictlng several hundred dollars, bills
for which have been sent to the commis
sioner of parks.
Plans Completed for
Plans for a $26,000 Implement warehouse
to take the place of the building destroyed
by fire a year ago at Ninth and Jackson
streets, have Just been completed . by
Architect George B. Prins and the con
tract for erection will be awarded within
a few days.
F. H. Davis, vice president of the First
National bank will be the owner of the
Duiiamg. It will be three stories with a
basement and mad of brick, a. ftrnmnf
structure. . .
Most of the debris left by the 1150,000
fire has been removed and th lost nrac.

will be started Immediately after the
award of the contract It is expected tht
building will be ready for occupancy

Unit System Proves
to Be Successful
Judge Lovett, ' chairman of the execu.
Uv committee of the Harriman lines,
has issued an' order that completes the
dissolution of the long standing agree
ment between the Union Pacific, tht
8outh Pacific, the Oregon Short Line and
the Oregon, Washington Railroad and
..avlgatlon company, being satisfied as to
the successful operation of the unit sys
tem of operating on the four roads men
tioned. The unit system was established last
spring and was an experiment It is said
by railroad men that its successful
maintenance affords grounds to disclaim
any meager agreement in the event that
th pending appeal before the United
States supreme court In the government's
effort to declare th Union Pacifio and
Southern Paficto a combination In re
straint of trad should result In a rs
versa! t the circuit court of appealf
judgment which was in favor of tht
Should the appeal be made against the
railroads and ths case ordered back foi
another trial, th Harriman lines will
offer as evidence tending to disprove the
alleged merger, the fact that the road
are now operating their own mileage.
Chairman Lovett has ratified new agree
ments for an Interchange of traffic be
tween the four lines, which it Is claimed
are not so closely related as fonnerly
These disagreements, it Is said, resemble
the usual traffic-agreements between dif
ferently owned railroad corporations.
Surety Company .
To further urge Caldwell ft Drake, gen
eral contractors, to rush completion of
th new county building, William M. Mor
row, special agent for the Fidelity &
Deposit company of Maryland, bondsmen
for th contractors, has arrived in Omaha.
Mr. Morrow told the county commission
ers th surety company will do everything
in its power to have the work finished by
October 5, the date fixed by the commis
sioners. - t
