At thu recent inuutlnir of ttto council thnt
body ordered pnid and plncvd In the ticncnv
npiroiriatiou ) ] ordinance ! the hill of the f a
com puny nmountlni , ' to Mr > , Fife.rj7. ( Tim hll
was objected to by several members of the
council , who held Unit If the gut coinii.in }
was entitled to more than $ ; i',000 the muttei
should bo decided In the couits. H | > e.ikitit
with a representative of the gun cotnp.iii.v
ycstcrdiiy a Hn : reporter asceitulned thtii
the romiMtiy did not expect to p-t jiaid rltjlii
nwuy. They felt that the major would veti
the ordinance because there was no money litho
the ircnunil fund with whioli to p.iy tin
amount above mentioned. The K.IS nun
also said that the amount even did
not express the Indebtedness of tHe city it
the roinjMiiy. In KUIIII ; ' < vrr the bonks it Inn
been discovered , he said , that Otimha o\\e-i
the company ti.'IT.l" nioic , making the tola
tin.Q-in 74. He explained this new develop
ment by stilting that the city was entitled
liecauso of certain umle.'istnmllnir , tonic
bate in n number of features , which made u )
the minor portion of thu bill and that rebate ,
ntmiunlliiK to * TH7 17as allowed. The
council committee was aware of the rebitf
nnd without closely examining Into the mat
tcr deducted the same amount. The i esult !
that the sum was taken out of the
bill twice. As soon as the pis company as >
rertairied this they set at woi k to tack on the
one of the ? 7t7 ! 17 , which will again bo the
RUbjctt of some explanation ut the council to
Jn looking into the matter , a Hr.n reortcr |
discovered another important mistake whie.1 :
will have to be icmedied at the same or pos
sibly later , perhaps when the mayor s-ends in
his message or when Comptroller Goodrich
forwaids to the s.une body his report whicli
Is said to comprise about forty | > ntcs of loyal
cap. When tliu pis bill , us before refened
to , was dlrcussed in the council , Mr. Good *
rieli's repoit showed th.it the city owed the
company only &U,000. It has since
been ellscovered that this was erroneous ,
This was because of no defect on the pait ol
the comptroller and his clerks but because ol
the peculiar action of the pas committee ol
thr council. At the end of last \ ear , the lat
ter were furnished by the pis company witli
bills for ! Sb7. among others bciiii ? ono for Ibl
gas lamps which had been erected during the
year. Knch of these lamps cost S2J and the
total amount w.is ( . ' 1,511 ! , which Added to thr
compti oiler's llguies would have made hi'
showing Kfi.M'J Hut HIM bill was not pie
Rented to the latter oftlcer until a couple ol
days ago , though the lommittee had h.ul it n
their possession since the tlrst of January
To this matter the comptmller will icfer ii
liis proposed irKJitto | the council.
It has been fnither Iraincd that as be
' tween the books of the coniptioiler and those
of the gas company , tip to the point coverei :
by each , theie isu dirfeieiicc ot something
over ? 100 , caused , it is piesunied , hi a ill Her
cncc of understanding in the accountants n
the latter In making their lepoits Tin
compti oiler was seen and said that some o
the gas people had seen him and agreed t <
throw off the excels to sti ike a balance.
It is reported that the affairs of the pa1
company heretofore have been kept in a mis
crablo manner and the wonder is that the dis
I cicpaney has not been greater.

is AN EXAHMXo ACT xin n ?
the Old haw Granting
Gremnil to the Government.
The bill introduced by Senator Manderson
as also Kepicsentativo McShaae in congress
for thu erection of u government building
hoio provides for the condemnation of
propei ty for a site of the same. Since the
bill has been considered ui the committee of
thu house , thu latter seems to think that
$ T)00OOUis all that should be appropriated
this year instead of $ lr > ( K,000 ) , because , before
moro than the meio sck-ction of the site
could bo done , an enabling act of the statu tr
ceulc the propei ty to the United States would
ho required ; and as thu legislatuio of thi
state which alone could pass
the act will not meet until
ISSK , it would be inadvisable to appropriate
moro than the smaller sum mentioned , leav
ing another cougi ess to pass the money i e-
quiicd to complete the proposed structure.
Chairman Halcombc , of the board of public
woi ks , hui unearthed the act of the state
h'gislatuie in IblO , b.hlch . the site of the
piesent postofllco building was e-cded to the
government. It is found in Hartlett's com
piled statutes , and reads as follows :
"That the lonsent of the state of Nebraskc
is hereby given to the purchase ) or release bj
the United States of such lands In Oinaua ,
not exceeding two ncies in extent , as inaj
have been or may hereafter bu selected b
the United States us u situ for a postofllce
and court house. "
Mr Halcombo a > s that the present site i <
less than u quai tor of an acre in extent am
that theie still remains an acio and three
quaitcis which the goveinment is at libert :
to select without ntf other act of the legislat
me. He has submitted the question to lega
authoi ity. If his opinion should be sustained
congiess would have no necessity to post
pone the appropriation of $ lT.omKK ) ( ) for tin
Omaha public building on the graiind of lucl
of another e'liablim ; act , which it seems nov
s the only excuse.

SPRING STYLES I
Although it is a little early to talk about spring goods , yet in some
departments new goods are already in demand. Our Hat department
has for the past few days been quite active , and our spring trade in
this line promises to be the biggest we ever had. We have made am
ple preparations for it , have enlarged this department considerably ,
and have put in a stock of hats unequalled for variety and styles. We
propose to make this department a leading feature of our business.1
Those who bought hats of us last season know that we sold them for
about one half the prices other houses charge. We intend to do still
better this season. We do not carry any cotton or so-called wool hats.
We only keet > good qualities of fur hats such as we can warrant will
give entire satisfaction to the wearer , with every hat sold in our es
tablishment goes a guarantee , and our guarantee means that if any
imperfection or damage is found in a hat , we take it back and give
either a new hat or return the money.
As our opening bargain for the season we have placed on sale all
elegant line of cassimere hats , made in the latest shapes , at one dollar.
These hats cannot be duplicated elsewhere for less than $2.50. At the
price of one dollar they are the most astounding bargain ever offered in
this or any other city. Finer grades of cassimere hats at $1.40 , $1.75
and $2-25. Our very finest hats at $3.25 are equal to the best makes
in this country or imported.
We have added this season a large line of soft hats , and also a fine
assortment for boys.
All goods marked in plain figures and at strictly one price.
