During the past month TUB HBE has de voted considerable space in its columns to a discussion of the city hall matter. The set tlement of the vexed question is ono of vital importance to the people of Omaha , and every effort has been nut forth by the paper to secure accurate information covering every point brought out by beta sides. The legal complications certain to arise have been carefully inquired Into , the heavy taxpayers have been consulted , the business men have been interviewed , and the desires of those harm ; occasion to frequently visit both the city and county buildings have been secured. U'ho preponderance of argument is emphat ically in favor of the present sito. There Is on almost unanimous sentiment in favor of completing thu city hall on the foundation already laid. The most important point in favor of a re fusal to relocate is the certainty of INTKKMINAlll.U J.1TIOATION. Iii the issue of Wednesday , January 2.1 , Tin : HKC called attention editorially to ir regularity In the proposition submitted the electors on the question of relocation. The city council has Ignored the city hall injunction granted by Judges Doano and Wnkoloy. In that Injunction the court plainly spocillud thu manner of suT ( inlttlng the question of relocation to the elec tors. The ordinance submitting the question docs not comply with those instructions , and gives the opponents of the proposed change an opportunity of defeating the JolTorson square advocates , should the electors decide in their favor , by carrying the ease into the courts , The city catered into a contract with the board of education , the conditions of which were that if the board would boar one- eighth of the cost of the construction of a city hall on Kightocnth and Farnam streets tlio city would permit the board to occupy rooms in the city hall building for the trans action of the hoard's business. The board , la consideration , advanced to the city nearly ( ' > , (00 , wh'ch was expended in thu founda tion. The terms of the contract between the city and bourd contain n positive and binding reservation on the part of the board , that if thu city fulls to construct a city hall on the lots on the corner of Eighteenth and Far nam streets the city shall roturu to thu board the $ J5.000 advanced. In the proposition for relocation , no provision U made for thu re turn of the monny should thu vote result in favor of Jefferson square. As thu board Is a party to a contract with tlio city , should the city fall to complete thu building as specified , the' ' board will have Just cause for instituting suit against thu city restraining It from erect ing the city hull in any place other than that spcdllcd In tlie contract. The board has n good case and the mentors are determined to assert its rights. Intho Issuoof TniHiKof : January US ono of the oldest and most eminent members of the Omaha bar questions the right of the city to divert Jefferson square from any other use. than that of a public park. Upon this point authorities differ. Koine hold the city can erect n publlu building on the square , whlla others equally as learned In In-v hold that it must bo kept as n "public square and park forever , " In the event of a vote lu favor of relocation those who hold this hitter view will contest the right of the city to erect : city hall there. The city hall having once boon located or Eighteenth and Farnam streets by a vote ol the people , and the fact that the county court housn was nlreay erected directly across the street , was the means of inducing heavy property investments and iinprovomonts by citizens of Omaha and nonresident dent capitalists. The proximity ol the two public buildings made the adjacent property valuable for the erection of line structures , desirablu for olllces for a profes sional class of tenants. The separation ol the two buildings will oopreciato the value of these investments. It is the opinion ot legal talent that these investors have a peed case against the city , either in the line ol contesting the right to remove or'ln the col lection of damages if removal is successful. A municipal corporation has no right to make a promise oa the strength of which vast sums of money are expended without recompens ing the investors for the resulting damage. In four different instances were vast sums ol money invested on the strength of this prom ise. An attempt to relocate will certainly result in litigation on the part of these in vestors. WOUKINOMEN'S IX raiCSTS. Omaha Is a city in which public improve ments arc the order of the day. Her popula tion is composed to a great extent of those who depend on the building trades for an ox- istenco. A sensible , conservative and honest city government is the means of promoting confidence among capitalists in , the safety of investments within her limits. The present and past at tempts to defeat tlio will of the people otico expressed is certain to weaken her standing and drive capital away. It is to the interest of the laboring classes to see tlmt confluence In Omaha's stability Is retained. The erec tion of a number of magnillcont structures in the neighborhood of the court aouso has been deferred Heading an acquiescence on tlio part of the obstruction element to the will of the pcoplo in thn city hall matter , and if they arc successful in their nefarious attempts the contemplated imuiovemuats will bo abandoned entirely. It is tlicrnforo to the Interest of the working classes to vote against any change from the iircsont loca tion , ns the litigation above referred to will certainly defer tlio erection of the city hall for many years to come. If the working classes vote to retain the city hall on the present site the building trades will havu more than they can do during thu coming and future summers , with the erection of busi ness blocks that will bo immediately com menced , the now postolllcc and the city building. OMAHA Nnnns IUIIKS. It would bo unwise and injudicious to use Jefferson square for any other purpose than a down-town park. Omaha needs it moro for that purpose than us a city hull site , The present legislature will undoubtedly make provisions enabling the city council to establish a system of parks for the people ple , to bo cared for after the manner adopted in the leading cities of the country. Indeed , as before stated , It is doubtful whether the square can bo legally utilised for any other purpose. i-iioxiMiTV or rfiii.ia IIUII.DI.VOS. It has been shown in the atticlo detailing the relations existing between the city and count. ) treasurers how essential It Is for tlio economical management of the city treas ury to have the county treasury within a few steps distance. Tliat the facts related are positively true , is evidenced by the asser tion of treasurer that "tho un ex-city state ments made cover the case thoroughly and are not colored or overdrawn. " The interview with City Attorney Web ster bbows the difllcultics that will ensue in city business connected with municipal litigation If the court house and city hall are removed half a mile , such as the nccessitv of summoning city ofHcinls with their record books as witnesses , frequent trips from court house to city hall ami vice versa to se cure needed Information , cio. The fact of having the court house and city hall in close proximity wilt prove of incalcul able benelit to the masses of the people In the saving of tlnis when business calls them there. Every property owner must call or send once a year at least and pay both his city and county taxes. If the present site Is retained no time will bo wasted in trips In volving half a inilo before the business ) is completed. It will only involve a trip across the street and the work is done. The point of proximity was overwhelm ingly sustained in interviews had with over one hundred attorneys , less than twenty of them favoring Jefferson square. The legal fraternity realize more than any other class the folly of removal. They have profession ally to visit both buildings every day , and they are outspoken in opposition to the relo cation scheme , not only in their own interest , but in the interests of their clients. Interviews with the heaviest taxpayers of the city and members of the board of trade developed a strong preference for the pres ent site , on account of its close proximity to the court houso. ACt'cssimurv. Considerable stress has been laid oa the superior facilities for reaching Jefferson squuro by street railway lines us against the Farnam street sito. The citizens of Omaha arc fully aware of tlio fact that the street railway lines of the city with one exception ( the Thirteenth street route ) , center at Fif teenth and Farnaui streets , three blocks from the present location. The Hartley street cable cars pass within ono block on the south and two blocks oa the west. The Dodge and Twentieth street cable cars pass witain two blocks on the north , giving the residents both north and south ample con veniences for reaching the corner of Eigh teenth and Farnam streets. The future growth of the city will warrant the future construction of transit lines , all of which will of necessity aim to land passengers near tlie actual business center of the city , Fifteenth and Faniam streets. Objection is made to the present location on account of its close proximity to Tin : Uui : building. The claim is nuulo that the latter structure will hldo the city hall from view. Tlio claim is ridiculous. A structure such us is contemplated , can bo seen from all parts of the city. The court house , the Now York Life Insurance building and HII : building are plaiiuy visi ble from this residence district south of the trucks , in the neighborhood of Hunsuom park , from cnpltol hill , and the sivetch of country dotted with residences extending to the northern limits of the city. If these build ings can bo seen from these points , certainly the city hall will not bo overlooked , If erected on Jefferson square the structure cannot bo seen unless the sightseer actually places himself on ono of the four corners of the Intersecting streets. No eminence is afforded , and the objection obtains there oa all of the four streets and from every available point that can only bo advanced against the present site whoa looking up Farnam street ; and there a posi tive advantage is gained over the square , inasmuch us the Eighteenth street lots are on a sightly location , towering uwiiy ubovo thu business structures on the level below Fifteenth street. TKKOTUAL llUSIXnsS CBSTKIi. The advocates of relocation set up the ridiculous claim that Jefferson square is in the present and prospective business center of the city. Investigutlmi demonstrated the absurdity of the claim. About $2,000.000 is invested in business north as against | is)00- ( 000 invested In business south of Dodge street. Of the streets devoted to business , not counting Dodge , Douglas , Farnam , liar- noy and Howard , North Onuhu has throe while South Omaha has six. Seven years ago Thirteenth street south of Howard con tained but two brick buildings , and every semblance of business expired when you nassed Jackson street. At the saino time Sixteenth street contained business houses as fur north us Cumlng. To-day Thirteenth street is a stretch of business houses as far south as Williams street. That thoroughfare - faro has made , comparatively , moro rapid strides than any North Omaha thoroughfare. Sixteenth street Is a business street , but not "business" to the extent of justifying the claim that the growth of business is posi tively north as against south , NEAll TUB IAII.UOAI > T1UCKB.

It is the opinion of those belt able to judge of thu future that all the ground duo east of the square will some day be condemned for railroad purposes. As the city grows the great tralllc companies that will enter Omaha will want track room , and the luvel plateau on which the square is situated is the most available and most desirable ground to secure. A study of any city map will convince tno unprejudiced mind of the dangers in erecting n public building in such un uncertain locality. h.txi v son , or Tin : riATiAtr. : It is asserted and backed up by experi ence in erecting heavy buildings in the vicin ity , that the soil in the neighborhood of Jef- furson square is not suitable for the erection of structures of the weight and character the city hall should bs. In sinking wells the residents of thu neighborhood have struck water at a depth of twelve feet. The imme diate vicinity has never boon tested in so far as the erection of a heavy lire-proof struc ture is concerned. Against this is indisput able evidence of the solidity of the soil of Uio present site. The Now York Life building is now practically coincided and mother earth resists the ponderous and sightly structure so well tlmt not a break or crack is visible in its solid walls. The county court house , perched on a splendid eminence , stone and iron throughout , is as safe and sound ns on the night of its gala opening. Tun liii : building , lire-proof from cellar to seventh story , n network of ponderous iron beams and granite and marble pillars , bids fair to retain its present perfection so lur as solid and uncraclced walls are concerned for a century to come. The IMxton bu'lding ' and chamber of commerce are m safe and sound as the day they wore completed. As between the two sites Farnam street presents a tried and tested foundation , as solid almo3t as the rocks of Gibraltar , against thu watery , sandy and non-resisting soil of Jefferson square. Till : FOUNDATION. The advocates of removal assert that the foundation already in plncu on the present site is unsafe and inadequate to support thu structure contemplatedby the Mayors' plan. It is a statement maliciously inadu without a sniglo competent builders' opinion to back it , On the contrary John F. Coots , who con structed the Douglas county court house , Uiclumi Withnoll , one of Omaha's most suc cessful contractors , and other competent ox- purts , positively assart that the foundation is stromr enough to sustain u six-story struc ture. This foundation Is an item of expense thinking taxpayers should carefully consider before casting their vote next Tuesday. If the city hall is removed the $13.000 already invested will bo literal wasted , and to it must bo added the cost of putting in a foun dation on u new sltq equally us good , making the total cost to tho'city at least $ sOOOi ) . If the city hall Is erected on Jefferson square , with its sandy soil , the amount invested in foundations will reach at luast ? 100,000 , Hy completing the city hall on the present site at least $100,000 will'bo saved ; by erecting one on another site the same amount will be wasted. It U certainly an item of public expense - penso to consider in an already heavily taxed city. Tlin QL'CSTIO Or ItOOM , It Is assorted that the lots at Eighteenth and Farauin streets fall to afford adequate room on which to erect a building large enough to meet the requirements of a grow ing city like Omaha. In an Interview with Herman ICouutzo. president of the First Na tional bank , in which that gentleman took a very conservative position , ho asserted the belief that the city hall of Now York city contained little , If any , more available space for olllccs than the city hall to bo erected in Omaha , if the wishes of the people once ex pressed are carried out. The city hall and court house la Chicago occupy Jointly a single block of ground-in the business center of the city , Chicago is a city of half a mil lion of pcoplo and constantly growing ; Omaha is a city of 100,003 people , one-fifth as largo as Chicago , and growing in pronortion. If ono-half of a block of ground is largo enough for Chicago's city .hall , one-fourth of a block is certainly largo enough for Omaha.

I'AITII WITH INVESTORS. Omaha has a bright future before her if she continues to follow the path of progress she has been traveling for thu past live years. Her credit is good m the east and her bonds Had ready purchasers. Private capital has boon sent huro for investment and in every instance it has brought satisfactory return. "The name of Omaha is as familiar in Lon don us it is in Chicago , " writes an English capitalist to his Omaha agent. Heretofore the city's word has been as good as its bon it it is os good yet and will bo in the future if the voters act intelligently on Tuesday next. A vote to relocate thu city hall means a de sire to repudiate the oiry's promises. On the strength of the vote locating the city hall on Eighteenth and Fariium streets the Now York Life lusur.inco company in vested § )0,000 in Omaha. The same vote was a factor In determining the Commercial National bank to purchase the lot on Sixteenth and l arnain streets and arranging for the erection of a banking house on it the coming summer. Ex-Governor Suundors is authority for the 'tutemont that his linn sold the Hur ley loton Seventeenth and Farnum streets to Missouri capitalists on the strength of the proximity of tlio two public biiilding.s.and it is stilted by parties who know of their plans that they arc ready to improve it by the erec tion of a line building il the citizens willonco and forever settle the question of city hall location on the site llrst selected. Tlio Hco liuilding company has invested f 100,000 in its building on Seventeenth and Knrnam , which , when completed , will bo ono of the largest and most perfectly appointed newspaper ofll- ccs in America. Other investment ? have been made in the vicinity on the strength of tlio same vote.

TAXI'AVnils' rnilFHKENTES The heavy taxpayers and business men are almost unanimously opposed to relocation , Interviews with many of them already pub lished speak for themselves. The preten sions and desires of a gang of schemers Ibid little favor with them , and tliq silly objec tions advanced against the present site will fail to swerve them from voting for the city's best interests.

" They Know what repudiation moans and they are opposed to it la every shape. * AVoil to Worklnuincii , Workingmen who tire interested in getting steady employment during the coming business season should not allow themselves to bo duped into voting for the Joirorson square proposition next Tuesday. In the llrst place there is no prospect -that Jim Crcighton , Tom Swift , Joe Redman , or any of the par ties who own lots adjacent to the square will erect any buildings worth speaking of or looking at. They will probably hold their lots for speculation , as they have done heretofore. And there is no pros pect that parties would oroot any great ind costly building within three blocks of the Union 1'aclllo shops , and within two blocks of the lumber yards.

The ablest lawyers in Omaha agree that Jefferson square cannot be used foi a public bu ilding because it was dedi cated to the public for n , park and baa been used for a park more than twenty years.

Douglas and Karnain streets in the coining spring. It is notorious that eastern capitalists and citizens of Omaha , who had their pinna all made for constructing largo and costly blocks of buildings in the neighborhood of the court house last year were discouraged by the light in the council over the city hall , and abandoned their enterprises altogether , thus depriving hundreds of workingmen mon of steady employment all this winter. The projected million dollar hotel was fairly under way last spring , and sixtylive"thousand dollars of u bonus li.vl already boon subscribed , when tlio lighten the city hull knocked the project in the head , because eastern capitalists were not disposed to risk sev eral hundred thousand dollars so long as there was any uncertainty about the public buildings which are to form tlio center of the Omaha of the future. These are stubborn facts which work- ingmcn should ponder over. Moving the City Mall. From Ilic Oiiitthti H'ruM , V'iM/n//.i/ ( / / 30 , l R1 , ' The city hull will be erected upon the present site. No one knows this belter than the members of the council who are busily spreading the idea that there is u possibility of abandoning the corner chosen for some other which is demanded by tlio interests of the gang. In thus engaging in false pretenses , they are neglecting their duties as pub lic olllcials. and stamping themselves as unlit to manage the alfairri of the city. ' 'There is no denial of tlio fact that the people have u right to abandon thu basement , if they want to do so. They have a right to cart the stone to the river , dump it in , and Hood tlio hole for aflsh-pond. They will not do this , how ever. Neither will they waste their money by tearing out what work lias already boon done and beginning over again. There would bo no object in the extravagant foolish ness. It would simply gratify pri marily n lot of sharks who would rather fleece the city than not , and u respectable minority who live at u dis tance towards the suburbs , and would like to have the neuter of altuira moved out to them. "There is no good reason why an election should be called to settle u matter already settled once. Why would a second Battlement bo more ef fective than the flrst ? Tlio people have no assurance that their action would bo final.
