Cattle Receipts of cattla wers fair for
Thursday, about 1,700 head, but th. four
days supply has been nearly MOO smaller
than s, week ago. Quality was hardly as
good as on Wednesday but the market was
of the earns general character, both pack era
and shippers paying steady to stronger
prices for the good to choice cattle of all
weights, while the fair to common cattle
were stow sate and unevenly lower. Another
newJhlgh mark was mads today when soma
1.659-pound beeves landed at $11.70. Com
pared with a week ago the choice cattls are
selling at somewhat atronger prlcea and
medium and common cattls anywhere roan
10 to 26o lower.
In cows and halfers there was Terr little
activity. Buyers took hold of the cornfed
stackers In pretty good shape and paid
ateady prices, but neglected the grassy and
half fat stuff, and It was slow sals and
decidedly lower. Veal calves, bulls, stsgs,
etc.. were In very limited supply and just
4 Business In Blocker! and feeders waa
very quiet, with no great change In price
one way or the other. "Very little good
Blockers srs coming at this ttms and com
nioner kinds of stockers ar showing a de
elded ly lower tendency.

Becomes Property of
Will Be Managed by R. W. Johnston, well-known
Hotel Man of Iowa and Nebraska. Standard Serv
ice of Nebraska Hotel Co. Chain to be Inaugurated
N June the 10th, a notable transfer of hotel prop
erty was made when the Nebraska Hotel Com
pany of Lincoln, Nebraska, took control of the
Evans Hotel at Columbus, Nebraska, For the
past three years the hotel, which, by the way,
is olie of the finest hotels to be found in the state, outside
of Omaha, has been under management of Mr. George A.
Scott, who is retiring from the hotel business.
The Evans Hotel is a beautiful brick and stone structure,
built about three years ago, containing 76 guest -rooms,
24 of which contain private bath and the others with bath
connepting. The entire equipment of the hotel is beauti
ful in its simplicity. The lobby is trimmed with white
Colorado Yule marble, and the floor is art tile. The stair-
way also is Colorado Yule marble. It is furnished ele
gantly in leather and lighted with the latest system of in
direct illumination. The rooms are all outside rooms,
With extra large one-light windows, and are furnished
with the best furniture that money can buy. Every room
has a telephone, and hot and cold running water. The
hotel building is equipped with "Baker" refrigerating
machines, and vacuum cleaning system.
The Evans Hotel is one of a chain of hotels, to be owned
and operated by the Nebraska Hotel Company. - This
company, whose officers are alive to the opportunity that
Nebraska offers to the promoters and builders of new
modern hotels, are at the present time building at several
good points where the hotel accommodations are prac
tically none, or at the best, very old fashioned.
The hotel business throughout the state, especially in the
smaller towns has been neglected in the past and it is
rather hard to understand the cause of this neglect when
: one takes into consideration the large profits to be made
in the hotel business when-the building and equipment
are owned by a company and operated on a chain system.
The chain system of operating hotels has proven, without
' a doubt, that it is the only way to Operate hotels, especially
in the smaller towns, as a company like the Nebraska
Hotel Company has an enormous buying power which in
these days of high prices makes a world of difference in
the net profits that a hotel earns.
The Nebraska Hotel Company has in use practically the
same system of checking and auditing as the "Harvey
System" which has been a huge success,-vand which
assures them the maximum of profits with a minimum of 1
loss. Another excellent feature jpf the chain manage
ment of hotels, is that the service is standard, which means
to the Nebraska Hotel Company, the same thing as Pull-i
man service means to the Pullman Company. When
stock in this company, which pays 7 dividends, was first
offered to the public, the response was instant and grati
fying.' For not only did the officers of this company re
, alize the great future in the hotel business, but the invest
ing people realized the same thing, and one thing alone
that assures the company of absolute success is the hearty
support and co-operation given them in towns when they
build much-needed hotels.
,The Nebraska Hotel Company is to be congratulated in
procuring the services of Mr JR. W. Johnston, who, by the
way, is one of the most widely known hotel men in the
middle west. Until recently he operated one of Lincoln's
leading hotels, and previous to his coming to Lincoln, he
operated the Waukonsa at Fort Dodge, the Ellis at Water
loo, Iowa, and many other first class hotels in the middle
west Mr.-Johnston is the past president of the North
western Hotel Men's Association, arid a man of great en
ergy and purpose. He is npt only an employe of this com
pany, but one of the promoters and directors as well,
which means that every detail pf the business win come
under his experienced eye. In a word Mr. Johnston's
interests and the company's are one, and that fact assures
the stockholders that this company has efficient manage
ment and the largest returns possible from this class of x
"Thebusiness and financial affaire of the company are un
der personal management of Mr. Frank E. Schaaf, who
. is president and general manager of the company, Mr.
Johnston's duties are the actual operating and supervis
ing of hotels owned and controlled by the company.
