In the Chlneso hen her American sister
has a most active and dangerous com
pctltor In the opinion of n good many of
the Omaha produce commission men. The
Chinese egg has arrived In Omaha and
while not on 'the market. It is here nnd
the prices that rome along with It are
said to Indlcato that the product of the
Chlneso hen can bo sold at prices that
vrlll mako those of the home product look
George Clark, one of the leading oper
ators on the produce commission row Is
In receipts of a cafe of Chinese cjtgs thit
came direct from China, having been en
route only about one month. Thoy were
sent to him, not to sell, but more as a
curlouslty to show ttie kind of an egg
the Chlnerc lien lays. In color, the eggs
are dark and rcscmblo -those of the
Plymouth Rock, but they are small -small
enough to that if offered for sale
on this market they would have to bo
graded as seconds.
Owing to their small size, the Chinese
esa received by Mr. Clark are not at
tractive, but the price that he says could
be attached makes up for what they
lack In looks. Mr. Clark says theso eggs
could pay the freight across the ocean to
Han Francisco, the rail charge to Omaha,
all the commission charges and bo placed
In the homes of the consumers at 18 to 20
cents per dozen.
IiOrnl f.aut Are Srcnu'its,
Commission men nay that the majority
of eggs bought by the majority of con
sumers are seconds and that now Uiey
are retailing at St to 28 cents per dozen,
-whereas flrsla fclch as a rule S cents
more per dozen. This gives the Chinese
eggs an advantage of around. 6 cents per
dozen In the evmt they were placed In
competition with the American eggs of
the second grade.
Mr. Clark is of the opinion that even
with the tariff off eggs. It will be a long
time before the Chinese eggs will be on
the Omaha market, but they are going
to be tho eggs of tho Pacific coast. This,
he thinks, will result In destroying the
market thoro for tho eggs from the cen
tral west and, as tho suppllod
is curtailed, prices consequently will go
lower than at tho present time.
American llrn Threatened.
On the Atlantic, as well as on the Pa
cific coast. Mr. Clark believes the su
premacy of tho American hen Is being
menaced. New York commission men In
form him that slneo tho tariff has been
removed from ess Now York, no-ton
nnd all Atlantic coast cities are receiving
largo quantities of eggs from Russia, nnd
that on the markets thero they are being
sold at about the same prices as are the
Chinese eggs In Paclflo coast cities.
Tho methods employed by the Chlneso
are not up to tho standards of tho Ameri
cans when it cotnes to packing their
eggs. Thoto sent hero are In crude cases
and the cardboard packing lacks the stylo
seen In cases here. Then, too, large and
small eggs are packed In the same case,
as aro those of dlffcient shades of color.
C. E. Spens, assistant freight traffic
director of the Ilurllngtpn, la In tho city
from Chicago, having como over to look
after nom railroad matters before the
Btato Itnllway commission
"While the freight business on the Bur
lington is not booming, Mr. Hpena says
a decided improvement Is noted since the
first of the year Ho Is of the opinion
that sv turn toward better times has come,
yet ho doea not anticipate great movo
mcnt of business until another crop has
been harvested.

Oiitnlrte Investor.
Only one bid, and It was below par, was
received by tho council for tho M65,000
ower, Intersection and street Improve
ment 1 Kinds advertised for sale. The coun
cil, walling for other bidders, took a
recess until tho afternoon. The bid was
fO cents. Kountze Bros, of Now York, the
city's fiscal agents, refused to bid, saying
the law passed by the recent legislature
making Lincoln instead of New York tho
fiscal agency was unfair, In that more
exchango would have to be paid.
Dan II. Duller, city commissioner of
finance nnd accounts, and Treasurer V.
O. Ure discussed tho situation. Butler
said In Ills opinion several things con
spired to hold back the bidders. Among
other things the 9165,000 street Improve
ment bonds, which aro not guaranteed by
the faith and credit of tho entire city, but
by tho soparnto Improvement districts,
did not meet with tho whole approval of
bond purchasers.
'We have money to purchase tS5.00O of
these Improvement bonds." said Butler,
"and all bond buyers ought to know that
they nro good. They always havo been
and always will bo good. The bonds of
the city are good and there Is no reason
why bids should bo submitted below
Under tho law tho city commission
cannot sell city bonds below pur, But
ler bollevoa Omaha films, knowing tho
low condition of the bond market now,
should tdko up these bonds.
As an indication of tho condition of the
bond market tho Water board has ar
ranged to buy back IP0,0il0 of its bonds
below par. It is tho belief of some of
tho city commissioners that the fact that
theso bonds can now be purchased for
P9 has led bond buyers to tho conclusion
that Omitlm olty bonds nre worth no
more, as water district bonds nro guar
anteed by the faith of Ihe entire city,
vcn as the sower and intersection bonds
are. ,
The street Improvement bonds, al
though acting as a deterrent to bidders,
luivo always been Included with tho
other bonds for the roabon that It Is
more difficult to d'sposo of them, as
property In the Improvement districts Is
held as guarantee, being assessod In tep
oyunl assessrarntH to retire tho bonds.

At the afternoon meeting tho council re

took a recess until Thursday morning at

Dr. Von Liobig, one of the world's, greatest
chemists, classified it so when he said, "Beer
and bread are the natural food for the work
ingman". Hard working people need whole
some and nutritious food, that rebuilds used up
tissues. Beer, therefore, was regarded a3 such
by this eminent scientist.
