Board of Trade to
Be Down Within the
Next Three Weeks
Within three and one-half weeks the
old Board of Trade building at Sixteenth
and Farnam streets will likely be gone.
This Is the time that the J. C. Mardts
Wrecking company now calculates to
consume In tearing down tho remainder
of tb,e building. Work has been progress
ing steadily for something over a week.
The Board ot Trade Building company
Is getting some- rough sketches made of
a proposed new building for the site, but
has not definitely arranged Its architec
tural plans. "It will take a lot of time,"
said E. M. Morsiaan, director of the
Building company. "There is really noth
ing new In the movement."
Meantime the suit Is pending in .district
court In which certain of the former ten
ants' of the old building are seeking to
get Judgment for alleged wrongful evic
tion after the fire that gutted the build
ing something over a month ago. Somo
of the tenants held that the building was
.till habitable after the fire and that their
leases should hove been good.
The salvage ot the old building la being
hauled to a large vacant tract of ground
at Nineteenth and Leavenworth, where
the brick and lumber are being carefully
piled to be disposed of later.
River Rises Over
Night, but a Flood
Stage is Far Away
A' rise of eight-tenths of a foot In less
than twenty-four hours occurred in the
Missouri river at Omaha Tuesday and
'Wednesday. Residents along the liver
bottoms experienced renewed fears of a
possible flood here this spring, but those
who Inquired at the weather bureau were
"Although the rise over night puts the
ilver gauge at a height of A.3 feet above
the loweat recorded level of eighteen feet
depth In the channel, the stage of the
river now la really normal for this time
tf year." said Forecaster L. A. Welsh.
"Exactly one year ago the river guage
read seven feet and then roae two and
threa-tenths feet tn twenty-four hours,
making the reading just what It la now.
and that was really below the average
for the latter part of March.
The fart that the heavy anowa are
melting away ao nicely here and south
of Omaha, leads me to tint that no signs
of flood will be experienced this year.
Th only danger Is from a sudden thaw
north of here, which would make eondl
tiona bad. Tha rlvr here nu la to ir.

FEDERAL OFFICERS ARE BUSY

. . ' . , , . ....
the second effort of the kind within
a few days discovered by Jailer Henry
Schroeder, has turned the attention
of Omaha authorities to an alleged
conspiracy to import and sell opium

reason of the fact that It Is more eas

t arried hy Mesaenacr.
Two pairs of old shoes were brought to
the jail by Glenn Gibson, a messenger
boy, who said they had been entrusted
to him by m-groea who directed him to
take them to the jail.
Federal authorities were notified of the
discovery by Jailer Bchroeder and have
started an Investigation In Omaha along
the same line as oue already under way
in Lincoln, which has resulted in arrest
of several negroes there, charged with
Illegally having opium in their possession.
The opium traffic, said to have been
conducted on a considerable scale in
Lincoln by negroes. Is believed by the
local authorities to explain tho exodus of
Omaha "dope fiends" to Lincoln follow
ing their recent release from the county
fmnKglrd Aitoii Border.
Federal agents declared a number of
negroes and' Chinamen In Omaha are
known to have dealt In opium. It is
brought from Minneapolis aud St. . Paul,
after having been smuggled across the
Canadian border, they said. It la known
that large quantities of It are made In
India and Persia and the prohibition of
Its ssle In China hag reduced Its price.
The use of opium, which Is chewed or
smoked, leavea no evidence. It Is han
dled in the form of a gum and I sold on
small cards. No bottles or containers
are required to nold It and It Is not In
jected Into the body to leave a tell-tale
scar. These facta are said partially to
explain tho problem of how dope fiends
are relieving their sufferings for drugs
since the new federal law became ef
fective. It la also known, however, that
considerable amounts of other drugs are
still being "peddled."
