an dto hear an address by Stanley M.
Rosewater on "Bankruptcy Law and
the Credit Men." Mr. Rosewater ex
plained that while some improve
ments could be made by amendments
it would be a mistake to repeal the
federal hankruntcv law because it
would be replaced by as many, and
probably conflicting laws as there are
states in the union. Following Mr.

New Record is Set Up
For Grassfed Steer
The highest price ever' paid on the
Omaha market for grass fed cattle
was marked up today when a very
fancy grass steer selected from a
shipment of Colorado cattle Sold at
$11.25. The previous high mark was
$11.00, brought by some select Mon-
tana cattle a couple of weeks ago.
Two miles of brick paving will be
handed to property owners along
west Center s(reel between Fifty
fourth and the Northwestern tracks
as a Cristmas present if plans of the
county commissioners as outlined
Friday morning materialize. Bids
will be advertised for at once and the
work started after the expiration of
the required thirty days. In case
paving brick cannot be obtained the
concrete base will be used tempora
rily until spring.
Beseiged by a delegation of twenty
property owners, headed by H. E.
Ball, the commissioners gave assur
ance that the road, said to be in a
deplorable condition, will be improved
"Automobile owners will not sell
a car to a resident of the west Cen
ter district and guarantee it for one
year because of the condition of the
Center street road," said Mr. Ball in
his appeal to the commissioners. "We
must have immediate relief."
'I am opposed to spending money
needlessly for temporary road im
provement, but I favor the immediate
laying of brick paving on Center
street," said Commissioner Harte. "To
spend money for macadam is fool
ishness. The next legislature will
without doubt extend aid to the coun
ties in good roads work by levying a
tax on automobiles according to their
horsepower. This tax will probably
average $10 on each auto and will be
turned-into the road fund. We have
$23,700 available in the road fund and
will spend that on west Center street.
As fast as more money accumulates
from inheritance taxes arid other
sources we will extend the paving."
Plans were also made for the grad
ing and improvement of Spaulding
street from the city limits at Forty
eighth to Fifty-seaond. This worl
will complete the boulevard between
Fontenelle park and Krug park.
