Her are few mor comments beard
on the treet:
John C. Wharton. PotmMter Omaha
la no way-station in any aen of th
word eicept in type and l of it pa
nenger stations. Omaha has attained
urn prominence in th commercial woild
u to be entitled to a union station com
mensurate with its progress and develop- J
ment Washington. Chicago. Kansas j
City and many other municipalities have
stations that cost many millions, while
Omaha's railway stations ar little. n
adequate affairs that cost a fw thou
sands. Th railroads cannot much longer
deny this city th terminal facilities to
which Its Importance entitle It Th new
ataton. In my opinion, should be located
in the neighborhood of Fifteenth and
Howard streets. That Is eentral and con
venient to everything.
' raroast Bay Time U Rle.
A. C. Pancoast, Attorney Th agitation
for a new union station is a good thing
for The Bee to keep up. W cannot
boost too much for this. Omaha Is Just
wher it Is coming to its own rapidly.
With th progress w hav now made In
the matter of hotel facilities, so long
much needed In Omaha, rtie time is rip
to turn our attention to a new union
dnot, a grand central union station, to
compare favorably with those of St.
Louis, Ksnsss City, Chicago and cities of
that type, for eventually that Is our class,
J. II, Dumont. Former President of th
Real Estate Exchange I want to see a
new union depot and more trackage fa
cilities. Of cours, w wsnt th Bur
lington In this time. Rrery time X see
that Burlington station I want to laugh.
Th plan If a Jok. There n that fin,
spacious room above, with no on using
It. Th service is aii below, wher every.
thing is crowded, and there Is no ac
commodation worth while.
W, H. Morrow, president of th Eco
nomic League Keep up th fight. Keep
th thing going. There Is only on s'd
to It W need a union station, of course.
That Union Pacific Station w hav at
present always reminds ms of the fains
front structures you see on th main
'Streets of a country village, with a high
front, mostly of painted tin just for ap
pearance sak. and than a low shed -f
a building hidden behind th fsls front.
W wsnt a union station this time with
the Burlington joining' In. so that a man
need not get off at th Burlington, and
then miss his train at th Union station
a block away, while h is trying to climb
up stairs, run over in viaduct, and 4o
a 'lot of silly checking of gripe.

Winning poem for tlUO prise offered by John D. Ha Well of Wake
Now laud the proud tree planter state,
Nebraska, free, enlightened, great;
Her royal place she has In song:
The noblest strains to her belong:
Her fame Is sure.
Then sing Nebraska through the years;
Extol her stalwart pioneers;
The days when, staunch and unafraid,
The state's foundation, well they laid, .
To long endure.
The land where Coronado trod.
And brave Marquette surveyed the sod;
Where Red Men long In council sat; 1
Where spreads the valley of the Platte
Far 'neath the sun.
The land, beside whose borders sweep
The big Missouri's waters, deep,
Whose course erratic, through Its sands.
From northland on, through many lands.
Does seaward run.
The foothills of the Rockies lie
Afar athwart her western sky:
Iter rolling prairie, like the sea,
Held long In virgin sanctity,
Her fertile loam.
Hor wild life roamed o'er treeless plains.
Till came the tolling wagon trains.
And settlers bold, far westward bound.
In board Nebraska's valleys found.
Their chosen home.
How o'er her realm and "neath her sky.
Her golden harvests richly He;
H corn more vast than Egypt yields;
Her grain unmatched In other fields;
Her cattle rare:
Alfalfa fields, by winding streams;
And sunsets, thrilling poets' dreams;
These all we sing, and know that tlm,
Has ne'er revealed a fairer clime,
Or gweetey air.
O nroud Nebraska, brave and free;
Thus sines thy populace to thee.
Thy virile strength, thy love of light;
Thy civic glory, joined with right,
Our hearts elate.
T'tv manly wisdom, firm to rule:
Thy womanhood In church and school;
Thy learning, culture, art. and peace,
Vo make thee strongs and ne'er shall cease
To keep thee great!
Should this song be chosen by the Judges, these stanzas could be
utilized on occasions, making them especially appropriate. In the original
composition, thes? two additional stanras have place between three and
Her heaving bluffs uplift their heads
Along her winding river beds,
And, pleasing far the traveler's view,
Well guard her Elkhorn and her Blue,
Encrowned with wood.
' A there, by landmark, ne'er to fall,
Upon the ancient westward trail;
O. graven stone, securely piacea,
Hy eye observant may be tracod
Where wigwam stood.
Her honored cities grow In wealth;
In thriving commerce, public health;
He first, the gateway of the west;
Her Omaha, that will not rest,
Nor take defeat.
Het capital of worthy fame,
That bears the mighty Lincoln's name,
And thousands of Nebraska youth
E'er summons to her fount of truth,
At learning's seat.
Student Raid on
Ames Theater Was
AMES, la., March It. (Special Telo
giam.) The story that went out from
Amea last night to th effect that th
militia had been called out In Ames, to
quell a riot of Iowa Stat college stu
dents, was a wild vagary which had llttl
or no foundation for Its proposition.
Th engineers of th college, who are
about 7V0 of the total of 8,000 students,
yesterday had their St. Patrick's day
wlebiatlon an annual feUval. They had
!lg festivities on the campus and In th
afternoon marched down town behind
tlnlr band. They rushed one theater
a cd then went to the Compsny C armory,
which a man had rented for a two-day
week-end production of the film, ,'Dnv
esed Goods." The guardsmen learned of
the Intended raid down town and there
wre three or four guardsmen on hand,
with baynneis fixed, to keep th students
out. Heputy Marshal Richard Canady
made a speech to the crowd. lie made
rsnrnicnts with the manager for a
free show." and the crowd went quietly
tu. In the first scramble to get in the
door a couple of studrnts stutk their
heads Into the bayonets and were
scratched. Nobody was injured and no
body was angered. Captain Moore of th
guardsmen gave orders to prevent dam
aging of th armory property.
