Councilman Ale.v.uiiler Exprns *
Himself 'on tlie Oiniilm Olinrt.or.
A V lien abkcd what legislation In thoug
desirable in city affairs , Cou'icilman Ale
under said : "You newspaper men 'jump
man so that It becomes dllHcult for mo to g
you my ideas in comprehensive form upon
the spur of the moment. 1 have , however ,
thought some over the miestlou of now legis
lation lu city matters , and I will say there Is
grout need of material changes in the present
charter changes that must be made before
much that has been done In other metropol
itan cities , and that should be done horc , can
be accomplished.
"For instance , take the question of our
public parks. 1 don't care to bo considered us
ovor-anxious in the matter , but I firmly be-
Ilcvo that the development of u line system
of public parks und parkways would do more
to enhance" property values and to make us
proud of our city than any other scheme that
can bo suggested. This would encourage in
dividual effort and result in the beautifying
of private us well as public grounds , lief ore
any steps can bo tukun , however , in that
direction the charter must bo so amended ns
to glvo ample authority nnd facilities for
currying on the work.Vo have a commission
appointed , but no provision has been made
for any expenditure in the way of levies ,
etc.
"Our methods of assessment are very do
fnctivo. I have not yet arrived at a very de
cided opinion upon this matter , 1 mean so ae-
to advance n perfected plan as to how Jit
should bo worked , but my council experience
has shown mo the miserable and unsatisfac
tory operation of our present system. It
amounts to nothing more or loss than n per
fect farce. Take Minneapolis , for instance.
There they have a city assessor uppoiuted ,
und ho in turn appoints such deputies us may
bo needed , subject 10 the approval of the
council. Ills own appointment is for three
years , but iho deputies only such time as
they nro actually at work ; probably not
moro than two months in oiuh : yoar. They
arc paid a stated salary. Percentages or fees
are not recognized.
"I don't think there will bo any tampering
with the police commission. Our people are
too well satisfied with the present condition
of things to permit any change in that par
ticular.
"Tliero are a good many minor points in
the present charter whicli can bo straigh
tened out a little , und doubtless a good many
new ones added. Movements tire already on
foot In this direction. I certainly hope that
[ ilouty of time will bo takou to make the
amended charter us nearly perfect as pos
sible. With a good , broad and liberal char
ter , and on Intelligent and buslncs < j-llko
council , the imurovcnionts In Omaha will be
simply magnificent during the next few
years , "

Mr. Mulionoy figures upon n Inrgo Increase

throe hundred or moro licnus of families ro-

figures by four. This will give a largo urmy

Speaking upon the subject of misplaced

The Soldiers licpwtllntc Chaplain
Nnvo'B KOVtrlB In Their nolialf.
With rofercnSc'ltfaiic'library at the post
the following frnitfuritaitlou has been re
celvcd from ap'rlv/M / fa the fort who sign
hlnwolf F. A. Us , u „
In the Issue of November 10 there wa
published n roqn'fcy 8 for n donation of books
to the Fort Omalin-jiosl library , which con
tnlncd some statcnioJits which I wish to cor
reel or modify , qis'iftell as to express the sen
tlments and cotjjplrtlons of the enlisted moi
of this plnco oiPft rnaUcrso closely comicctct
with their Intotyjsfcj'jind welfare.
The general tonp-of tlio chaplain's letter
might create the impression in the public
mind that soldiers , as a class , are unprlnol *
plod men of a very low order ot intellect ,
destitute of morals , and governed by vicious
habits. Now , any one who will take the
pains to Inquire Into the matter nnd become
personally aciiuuititcd with soldiers in general
oral , can find among thepi men of education
morals , nnd intellectual ability , and men o :
as sound principle nnd superior Intelligence
as ho can in any other walk in lifo.
The lifo and calling of n soldier practical ! }
remove him from rfiflned society. It is to
this fact nlono that a largo share of the Im
morality ot the rank and Illo of the army Is
duo. Why this Is no1 , involves a point in
social and moral ethics which I have nol
space to discuss , Again , nny class of men
whoso calling debars them from the society
of rclined and noble women must necessar
ily degenerate In morals. And this Is nol
less true of soldiers If there is any book ,
or sot of books , that will wield the same in-
tluouco over a man nnd unhunco nnd olcvnto
his moral character as much as social inter
course with women of rotlncd and cultured
tastes , I have never heard of them.
Wo have a post library that contains a
largo number of choice works by the best
authors , which includes history , ancient and
modern , biographies of great men , travels
anil explorations , philosophy , poetry nnd va
rious sciences , besides numerous eucyclo-
dcdlus , essays , sermons nnd books of a relig
ions character. I dare say tlmt two-thirds of
the enlisted men of tlio garrison have never
read half of them. There is also a reading
room in connection with the library , whcro
nil the leading daily and weekly newpapcrs
nnd popular monthlies and periodicals nro
kept on Illo.
There is a provision in the army regula
tions for it post fund at all the military posts ,
and a part of this fund is to bo used for sup
plying and maintaining n post library nnd
ruading-room , und all enlisted men of the
pout have free ncooHs to It , Hcsidcs , if wo
wanted moro books thiih could bo furnished
us by post fund , wo could nmko up a collec
tion among ourselves and purchase them.
Wo often do this to purchase table ware for
ou.r moss halls , nnd other things not furnished
to us by the government. Hut In this ciso :
we have not been asked by the post chaplain ,
or nny ono else to give nnythlng towards re
plenishing the library. I think that any of
Us who patronize the library would rather
give 25 per cent , or more if necessary , of his
noxtmonth'8 pay , toward a library fund than
be dependent on charity for our reading mat-
tor.
tor.I think that the Second United States In
fantry is omnil in Intelligence to nny other
regiment in the Unitod'States army , nnd that
tlio American army , as a whole is equal , if
not superior , in'intelligence to nny other
army In the world. ,
I niu personally aciVualntcd with several
enlisted mon in tjo ( post who received u col
legiate education , , and"1 who take a deep ( in
terest In , and lurni intulligeiit views on the
great political nod social issues of the day.
There aroother\vlioVero denied thoadvant-
sago of nn early CAluc tion that nro making
the most of their inoigro : opportunities , and
spend the greater pjirp of their spare time
reading and stndVln'g .educational books and
literature. Quito A'nnniber arc pursuing reg
ular courses of study and reading , with a lit
erary or scientUlc object in view. These
men ( of whom live writer is ono ) , and others
of similar tastes , nro abundantly able to pur
chase their own books.as good books may bo
had very choau uofV-a-iJays , und a small per
centage of a sold'iorjs uumthly pay will buy
nlm'ull the books'Iuiat hollas , tpoo' to1 read
carefully , thougfrwu'lly , and with pront to
' * '
blmsolf.
Our chaplain is a very worthy man , and
wo have no doubt but thatlio is interested in
Improving the moral tone of the enlisted men
and placing the means of acquiring knowl
edge before them. And \vhile wo appreeiato
the motive that induced him to make a re-
( jtiost for a donation of books , yet wo can but
fuel that he lias made a mistake and placed us
In a compromising condition. Wo are neither
beggars nor paupers , dependent on public or
| > rlvato charity for mental food , or for the
means of self-culture and intellectual ad
vancement. Any soldier of literary tastes ,
or who has n desire to advance himself in
any branch of learning , or to improve his
moral nature , has plenty of mono-to pur
chase such books , and as many of them as
his tastes may require ; while those who
squander their pay at the saloon or gaming
table would not read nny books that might
bo placed in their reach. If the chaplain
wishes to improve the morals and intellect of
the enlisted men of the army ho should strike
at the root of the evil and not bo trying to
iruno a few of its brunches. He should use
its inllucnco towards securing an amend
ment or a modification of existing regulations
governing the enlistment of young men , so as
> .rofulre ) them to pass a thorough examina
tion in the ordinary branches of education
and furnish satisfactory evidence of a well
established moral character.
From the foregoing I .think the public will
clearly see that any donation of books would
lot only humble us In their eyes , but that no
soldier with any feeling of independent uiun-
lood , self-respect , or manly pride would road

Charles Kammorer In Trouhle Tor
Soiling it.
Charles Kammcrer , who was convicted in
, ho police court for selling liquor on election
day , will take an appeal of his case. The
ostimony which convicted him was that of a
man who swore that ho had bought a half
ilnt of liquor from ICammeror before S a.
n. , on election day. Kammcrer claims that
this was not in violation of the mayor's do-
crec , which ordered the saloons closed from
from S a. m. to 0 p. m. Judge Herkn , how
ever , looked at It differently. Ho ruled that
, he statutes prohibited entirely the sale of
iquor on election day , with
out regard to hours , nnd the
statues he maintained were superior to the
edict of the mayor. As Kammerer had brok
en tlie state law , he would have to suffer the
icnalty $100 line.
Chief Seavoy has written a communication
.o the licensing board culling their attention
n the fact that ICammeror has been found
guilty of breaking tlio state law , and asks
'or the revocation of his license. The chief
says tlmt an appeal of ICuuimurer's case will
do no good as ho had detectives In the saloon
a number of times during tlio day who saw
Kammcrvr dealing out liquor. Other places

The Science of Temperlnc Steel.
Jowclors1 Rovlow : In the whole rnncc
of tlio nu'Chnnlcnl nrtsllwonldboncurlj
Impossible to llml another nrocess notice
otico so simple , und so common in priii1
ciplo , nnd yet go I i tile understood it
theory , us the linrdoninp nnd tompcrinp
steel. It wns probably this fiu-t whicli
some j-o.irs n o led the .Institute ol
Mci'lmnicul .Engineers of Hn lum ! ti
plnco this subject umoiiR thosa to be
specially invcstlgntcu by u committee ol
ils own members , who reported npon it
in duo time , To illustrate the fuels ol
lumlcnin und tempering u cold
chisel , \vhioh is usually done
ut ono operation , may bo
briefly described. After heat-
inp the point it Is dipped In cold wutor
nnd thus the tool ia hardened. After
cooling , the smith lifts the btool from
the water nnd wntchos it closely us the
hunt romuining in the body of lliomotul
rtitTuses Itself through the hardened
nortion. As the heut spreads the color
pus-sos from u white lustre to u palo yellow -
low , to Htruw color , to u brownish or-
mifjo. Then the point is dropped into
water ufftvin , in the full confidence thul ,
utter cooling1 , the temper will bo that
desired. If the smith dulnycd the brown
would become dappled with purple , und
would then iiass sticcossivoly into full
purple , light blue , full blue , dark blue ;
und each temper would give its own
temper upon cooling , as bright blue
for swords and watch springs ,
dark blue for saws , etc. These
tire the well known facls , and yet
their "how" and " "
"why" bus always
boon equally n mystery to the artist and
the Bciontist , although upon the correct
solution of the problem depends so Im
portant n matter as knowledge of how
best to roach that judicious compromise
which woulu blond the maximum of
hardness and toughness. Now , oillior
can bo procured ut pleasure , us the
colder the butli the harder the steel.
und the Blower ( as in oil ) the tougher ;
but extreme hardness is produced ut
the strength of tenacity , and vice versa.
The committee's conclusion \vis : Htig-
gostod by LMison's experiments upon
wlro , which ho made public in 1S7 ! > .
Those experiments showed that inciiii-
descent platinum wire became covered
with minute lissuros , duo to tlio ospini-
tion of the occluded gusos under the ac
tion of heat , und that when the wire
was cooled in n vacuum the llssurcs
closud. Hy u succession of huntings und
coolings iho gases were entirely expelled -
polled , und the platinum became miioh
harder and donsor. As the committee
suggests , it may bo that the Ilrst uni
extreme heat dries out the gases oc
cluded ut ordinary touiporhtiiro , thus
producing the dtiis.oness of hard sleol-
Whoa the mulul is slightly hcutod
'
us in tempering , rcnbsorp'tion bc-
gliiH , nnd the characteristic colors arc
duo to the changes in the sur
face , the gradual opening of iniuuto
llssurcSj which uro produced by this rc-
ubsoriition. In connection with this
latest theory may bo mentioned one or
two earlier onus. Ono is that when
steel 3 is heated the carbon become
amorphous and the stcol is soft , while
if cooled quickly the carbon crystallizes ,
talcing tlio properties of diamond , and
the stool becomes as it wore , diamond
sot in iron. This theory of Julien's
is , porhtips. the most striking ono. but
while accounting for hiirdnoss.it docs
not explain the temper of stcol , to say
nothing1 of objections to the postulated
liquefaction of carbons.

in the army und navy circle Mrs.
Drum , tlio wife of Adjutant Gonorul
Drum , wus u firm friend of Mrs. Hur-
risen , nnd the ladies und their young
duughlcrs , who tire both matrons now ,
were often together.
No mutter wlmt her political belief or

Just pride und noble satisfuetlou fill
the soul of u wife when u grcut nation
uccopts the man she delights to honor
for what she bus known him to bo since
the day they begun the world together. -
Oloaii 'hand's , clour brains , honest um-

each other have helped the young
couple of thirty years ago up life's
mountain of work and endeavor to the
proudest pinnacle of success known to
the American people.
