campaign has acutally amounted to, what
amount of space It has consumed, and
the general class of promoting It ac
complished. To reprint nil The Hoc has
done In this line In practicatly threo
months It required a ten-page section.
This has been mailed broadcast to the
real estate men of the city.
This campaign has only begun. That
Its force has already been felt Is apparent
to studious real estate advertisers. That
a continuation of It along the same lines
will gather In cumulative power every
year Is beyond question.
Tho Bee has been trying to Imbue the
readers with a desire to own real estato.
The real estate men to get results must
hammer away at the same crowd. Tho
advertising which the realty men Insert
In The Bee Is an essential part of the plan,
because, while The Bee creates the general
Interest In real estate, It Is tip to the real
estate men to get tho readers Interested
In particular piece of property.
By Its promotion ads the paper Is doing
much to help thV real estato by incus.
The part of the real estate man Is to help
make an active market by keeping up
his own advertising.
The movement for the consolidation of
county and city government In Omaha
and Douglas county so as to eliminate
the city hall and do away with a lot of
expense of running two governments
with headquarters within a block of one
another. Is beginning to take definite
shape In Omaha.
August 6 Is set for a big delegated
meeting In the council chamber In tho
city hall, at which the matter Is to bo
discussed. The delegates to thla meet
ing have been appointed by various civic
bodies In the cities, towns and tlio county,
and commercial clubs of all the oltles
and villages ln the county, as well on
city and county boards.
W. II. Green Is tho man who started
the agitation again In Omaha. He
brought It before tho Baal KataU JCx
chango some weeks ago. That body
asked that all civic and commercial
bodies co-opernto In a movement to bring
this about. The co -operation has been
assured, so Green says, and the various
bodies have . appointed delegates to at
tend the big meeting August 6.
The plan Is at this meeting to perfect
an organisation to be known as a league.
hlch Is to conduct the campaign of
education along tho lino of consolida
tion. John I Webstar, John P. Breen
and J. W. Wood rough have been aaked
to speak on the legal phones of such a
consolidation. They arc to point out the
step necessary to bring It about and are
to point out the advantages of such a
Mr. Green has circulated freely among
some of leading men, of tho city and haa
announced to them that It la their duty
to give some of their time to tho move
ment, as It is always their duty as lead
ing men to give some of their time to
the solution of the big publlo problems
of the community.
Mr. Green says the farmers in the
county are absolutely with him on the
matter- We says he has their word and
their consent to "Go as far as you like
on the consolidation," for they are for
anything that will reduce the publlo ex
penditure and thus reduce the burdons

CTnCAGO, July 3x Thero Is no founda
tion for much of the agitation about busi
ness conditions in the United States,
George M. Reynolds, president of tho Con
tinental and Commerctat National bunk,
and John Shedd, president of Marshall
Field and company, asserted in their iestl
mony today before the federal commission
on Industrial relations,
Tho witnesses said much of the pes
simism expressed could be traced to pol
itics. "Unrest exists, but thero Is a great ex
aggeraUon of present conditions," Mr.
Reynolds said. "The prosperity of our
own people compared to that of peoplo of
any other land Is such that so much
discussion and criticism is not warranted.
A great deal of our troubles are only
mental ones, after all."
"Unrest In Industry Is worldwide,"
said Mr. Shedd, "and Is caused by a de
sire for better food, hotter housing, bet
tor clothing and more leisure. A largo
element Is In tho prevailing agitation for
purely political purposes and by Irde
sponslbles for purposes of notoriety.
Another element Is the rapidly Increasing
complexity of Industrial conditions.
"Unrest Is a sign of progress, not neces
sarily an evil."
