Wlint tlio Cittzons' Visit Accom
plished Thn KnlchtB Action.
Judge Savage , W. V. Morse , II. W. Yntcs ,
C. W , llnnillton and other prominent citi
zens who went to Lincoln to consult with the
Douglas county delegation relative to tlio now
clmrtcr , returned yesterday morning. They
nro all exceedingly well pleased with their trip
not only on account of their courteous recept
ion by the legislative representatives , but be
cause of tlio understanding arrived at
which Insures the passage of the clmrtcr.
JudEO Savage stated to n repoitor tor the
BEE that the Lincoln journey and consulta
tion witli the Douglas county delegates \\ero
latlstactory in evrry way. A joint meeting
rras hold Tuesday night , nt which were pros-
snt the mcinbcis of the legislature , the
Dmnha citizens referred to and sev
eral gentlemen representing other Inter-
st3 nllectod by the charter. Tim railroad
taxation section seemed to ho the real ques
tion on which an Important difference of
opinion c.xibted. When tlio Judtre was called
upon to Interpret its real meaning ho said ho
Felt certain that fully one-half of tlio delega
tion did not understand Its full meaning.
When it was shown that no attempt was
being made to tax tlio railroad right of way
but only property belonging to tlio companies
Mljolnlng tlio right of way , or owned and
Used by them tor other than railroad pur
poses , nil dlillculty In the minds of tlio dele
gates seemed removed. The bcctlon of the
proposed charter relative to viaduct approaches
preaches was lelt as It came originally from
the committee of tittecn. There was some
llttio discussion on other matters , such as
minting , the S200 tax exemption clause , etc. ,
but tlio delegation had evidently decided on
nil other points and agreed to the charter as
originally hottlcd upon by tlio committee of
tiftcen with only slight chances , making
clearer the meaning ot the raihoad and via
"Yes , " continued .Judge Savage , "there
was agenoial agreement for the passage oX
the charter when the sections alluded to worn
properly undci stood. The gentlemen who
accompanied mo signed n resolution thankIng -
Ing the delegation for their reception and ex
pressing tlio Mitisfaction that the charter
would pass. Them Is no objectionable fea
tures of importance In it that will Interfere
With the glowth and prosperity of Omaha ,
whatever. Ol couit > e , it Is Idle to talk of a
clmrtcr or of a constitution that In every
minute particular will suit everybody. On
tlio whole , the charter asdiafted by tlio com
mittee , with tlio slight changes alluded to , Is
a good ono and should p.m. in tact , I am
ceitaln It will. "
"How do you think the members from
other paitsoi the state will net In , the mat-
"Well , as far as Iran see. they are nil in
fayor of giving Omaha such municipal
legislation ns its citl/ens dcsiro when
it In no way Inteiloios witli their respective
localities or interests. In fact , they think
that the charter should have been disposed of
befoio this : that too much time has been
taken up with U already , which in n manner
has delayed legislation affecting other portions
tions of the state. "
"Will the charter bo taken up at once1
"Yes. The understaiuilngarrlve.il at TUPS
rlny iiMitas that thoclmrter should p.isthe
tcuato as orlginally.introdiiccdto-day. When
t leaches the house the Blight cnanges al
luded to will bo made and there will remain
only the work ot thu committee of confer
ence , and 1 think tlio new charter will bo n
law u'ly soon. In laet , It would bo a great
damage to Omaha did it not. The amend
ments , if Introduced In tlio senate , would of
couiso necessitate a reference to committee
and cause delay. Hence you see. that tlio
niembcis me anxious to have tlio bill pasted
ns soon as possible. The Douulas county
delegation means to do what is right null
proper tor Omaha , I think. "

Henry W. Yates said : "Wo had a very
satisfactory visit to Lincoln and wcro re
ceived with tlio greatest considciation by the
Douglas county delegation. There Is no
doubt but these gentlemen wish to do every
thing they can for the intoiests of Omaha ,
especially in the passage of a charter that
will be of benefit to tlio city.Vo had a
mooting Tuesday night , pleasing In every re-
snoct , 1 think , to all concerned. There
seemed to bo a general feeling to arrive at a
conclusion that would bo ot bciictit to
"Do yon think the charter will pass ? "
" 1 think It will and it certainly bliould. "
"Will there bo any changes of impor
tance' . " '
" .No , sir ! Not from the proposed charter
asaciocd upon by the original committee of
fifteen. The section refuiring to railroad
taxation seemed to bo the one on which the
members of the legislature were not exactly
satisfied. As it now stands the charter aa
originally drafted Is acceptable to the delega
tion , with the change relative to railroad tax
ation , which Is that railroads shall pay taxes
on all propci ty owned by them whether on
their right of way or not , which Is notstilctly
used in the line of their legitimate business
as railroads. "
"The Douglas county delegation seems to
bo working tiard to get the charter passed ,
" Yes , and I think ono and all are doing the
best they can to satisfy Omaha and their
constituency , and of course the statoai large ,
for Omaha's welfare is Nebraska's welfaie. "
Action of the KnlKlits of Imlior.
A regular mcetingof tlio Knights of Labor
was held In Clark's hall Tuesday evening , and
after the transaction of regular business the
doors were thrown open to the public for a
general discussion of the new charter. Every
assembly of the Knights of Labor In the city
was represented , bosldeo many prominent
tiadcs union men and honest woikcrs In the
cause of labor , making In all an audience of
fully 600 cltl/cns. Several staring speeches
wore made , and the proposed charter was in
telligently and earotully discussed up to 11
o'clock , the hour of adjournment. The great
majority of hontlment was in'favor of the
passage of tlio charter In Its original shape.
Theio was very llttio opposition manifested
and that was seemingly mom for the pur
pose of drawing out the best explanation of
the different sections than through any de
sire to defeat tlio passage of the chuiter. A
resolution was unanimously passed to the
oiled that it was the desire of the Knights of
Labor ot Omaha to have the Douglas county
delegation In the Icglslatuio use all honora
ble means to secure the passaso of the now
chatter as Intioduced In the senate , and that
said resolution bo telegraphed to the Douglas
county delegation to-day.
