Around the railroad freight of fire and
the grain commission houses the report
la acaln curtent that Chlrngo Is alrout to
make dome kind of a move to regain Its
ItcmIbp as the Kreat grain market of
the country. What the move will be no
c ne seems to have nn Idea, though It la
thought that Chicago will go before the
Interstate Commerce commission and
charge that the rates, as compared with
Omaha, are not equitable.
The move upon the part of Chicago
comes about by reason of the fact that.
Omaha Is pressing It closely, for first
place as the grain market of the 1'nlted
Ftates. Thnt Omaha Is crowding up to
ard first place Is said to be proven by
the Increase In grain receipts and ship
ments last month, as compared with thi;
corresponding month of last year.
During November, 1911, Omaha handled
carloads of grain In, and I.7ST out
During November of this year the busl
r.ess almost doubled, the receipts reach
Ing 4.61 1. and tbe shipments 4,fi?l car
loads, a record reached but once or twice
during any month In the history of the
Omaha Ura,nd exchange.
Illaht Ann)' from Its Doors.
It Is said that what Is worrying Chi
cago the most Is the fact that Omnha Is
going right tip to Its doors and taking
the grain nway, bringing It to .this
market and then sending It on south to
Its untlmate destination.
During November, the Northwestern
brought grain Into Omaha from Mor
rison, III., 37 miles distant from this city
and but 121 miles west of Chicago. This
was the nearest to Chicago that Omaha
went to gel any grain, but from Clinton,
la, 13S mllen west of Chicago and 358
miles east of Omaha, there were large
and frequent shipments to this market.
The reason why Omaha Is able to go
Into Chicago territory and purchase grain
Is explained. It Is not becouse. the rail
roads have favored this market In any
particular, but by reason of the fact that
the combination of rales from central
Illinois to the. south by way of Omaha
makes a lower rate than to send the
grain Into Chicago, there, put It through
the elevators, and then send It Into tho
gulf states, that have come to be looked
upon a this market's territory.
During November but little grain from
this market went to Chicago, or the east.
The bulk of it went south, and grain
men predict that the movement In this
direction will contlnuo for some time
and perhaps permanently, as many of
thorn lean to the opinion that the opening
of tho Panama canal will give about all
the grain passing through the Omaha
market a southern outlet,
Jlves liootl Idpsj, .
The buslnrsg dono In and out of Omaha I
during November gives tho best idea oft
now tno grain has been moving.
During the month the Northwestern
brought Into Oiiiahu 2,170 carloads of
grain, but Old not Imul anything out.
Tho Hurllngton, that has n southern con
nectlon. haulod 100 carlouils in 'and took
1.4T out. The Missouri Pacific brought
but ten earn of grain Into Omaha, but out
and to the south It hauled 1,K9, Other
lines did n business as follows.
Illinois Ccntraf: In, 412; out, 7tl cars,
Itock Island: In, Ul; out, C27. Wabuss
In. S; out, VS. Union Pacific: In, ;
out, 103. Chicago Ureat Western: In,
111!., out, ISi. Milwaukee; In, 920: out,
Thus It will be seen that while, all the
roads centering here, during November.
loured grain Into Omaha's lap, only those
having lines to the south, or close south
ern connections, carried any out.

Trying to Collect
on Pool Hall Fire
in Easter Tornado
Whether or not claim tan be made for
fire losses In the Omaha tornado under
fire Insurance policies that have- no "'tor
nado" clause, when the flro broke out
before the building burned was blown en
tirely down, will bo .determined by the
verd(ct In a suit which was called for
trial In the court of District Judge Ie
H. Kstf.llc' Wednesday morning.
Prank Wilson, a colored preacher of
Topeka, Kan., who owned the wrecked
Idlewlld hall at Twenty-fourth and Kr
sklnn streets, In tho tornado district. Ir
suing tho Northwestern National Kite
Inwuranco company of Milwaukee for
Indemnity under a policy of tho com
pany. He alleges In his suit that fire
broke out In the building while It was
still standing, and that the total toss by
damage to the building Is therefore col
lectable under the fire Insurance policy,
although thopollcy had no tornado
clause In It.
The caso presents questions of both
fact and law, and upon the outcome hang
the prospects of many tornado siiffererr
to collect damages under their fire In
surance policies, If fire occurred on their
premises In connection with tho tornado

implication that members of the organ

Arnold, "'you must find the Rotary
Mub a great business help,' and I have
Invariably replied. 'Business be hanged!'
If I knew the club to be a business lia
bility to me rather than a business asset,
I should still want to belong to It. It Is
the fellowship that we enjoy here that
la the chief Inducement for becoming u
member. Here I, who have been In
Omaha only three years, find many who
lay aside formalities and call mo 'Duane,'
ust as they did In my former home, u
town of 8.0W, where every one knew every
ones first name. It Is this spirit of
Hail fellow well met" that appeals to
the stranger to Omaha, and on such spirit
has the Rotary club been founded."
Th Omaha Rotary club has lit mem
bers. each a representative of a different
line of business. The unique organization
was first conceived In Chicago about five
ear ago. Since then others have
prung up In the larger cities of the
