tdr. Paddock Knows of No Propo
sition to Buy the Lines ,
AN OPPRESSIVE ORDINANCE.
Dr. Mercer's Statement Concerning
tlccont Humors Li. n. WIHIixins
Becomes Director of the "Con-
Pndilook'f ) Dcnlnl.
Sonntor Paddock was questioned ns to the
reliability of the story that ho limt brought
from Messrs. Amos and Dillon , ot Now
York , an offer to purchase the Omaha street
and motor railways , and answered :
"I positively brought no such offer , have
no knowledge that any proposition of the
kind has been made , and don't hollovo the
Btroot railway company wants to soil out. "
"It Is charged by the opposition company
that the Omaha street railway company Is
building with a vtcnv to selling out , " SUL--
Rcstcd the reporter. But this ( ailed to bring
out an expression ns to whether the allega
tion was true or false.
The senator was also aiked why his com
pany had sought its frunuhlio under the
name of the cublo company In South Omuhn.
"O , " said ho , "tho names remain as they
nlways wore. The cable company has a per
fect right to do us it pleases In that mutter. "
"How soon do } ou expect to commence
building down there ) "
"At once. "
An Inturvlow With Moroer.
"This talk about the consolidation of our
line with the other consolidated lines , " said
Dr. Mercer , of the motor company , yes
terday , "Is all nonsense. Wo huvo no da-
slro to consolidate , and no doslro to sell , it
would bo folly for us to do so now , at a tlmo
when the road will begin to earn a little
something. IJulldlng street railways in
Omaha Just now Is a burden , lot mo toll you.
Take the ordinance recently passed by the
council ; Its oppressive. A certain city cru
cial who had an axe to grind suggested to
Councilman Wheeler that it would bo a good
thing to maku the street riillwnys pay for
paving on streets over which their lines run ,
nnd Whcolor , thinking it would bo a smart
thing for him to do , railroaded it through
the council. The ordinance is oppressive
nnd will prevent the construction of at lu.w
fifteen miles of street railway in the city this
year. It will require un outlay of $40,000 on
our part , and to keep faith with the people
wo must pay that sum , butat the sumo time
wo know that the city is too binall to justify
the outlaj. Many councilman voted for the
oratnauco without : i thorough knowledge of
its provisions. It was never referred to n
committee , but wits rushed through without
critical examination , We think the other
ltdc , also would be pcrfccUliiir willing to
concede any regulating ordinance , but wo
object to the one now existiong which prnc-
tically amounts to the conllscatlon of prop
erty for live years.
"No city can be builtupundersucb circum
stances. We shall sue the city to recover
the amount wo have paid into the treasury
in this way. " _
There Is now n great deal of harmony in
the Omaha Sticot Hallway company , and it
is said it is likely to continue until the ques
tion of selling the plant to Dillon and Ames
is considered. The contest in the court ,
which L. 13. Williams threatens , has been
averted by that gentleman being placed on
the board of directors.
It will bo romombcrcd that when the Cable
Tramway company consolidated with the
Omaha Horse Hallway company , a now
board of directors was elected. Mr. Wil
liams was not included in the membership ,
although he had been a member of the cable
tramway board , and held something like
$ 10,000 in stock in the concern.
This omission incensed him greatly , espe
cially because others who hold less stock
than ho dul hud been placed upon the boaru.
Ho promised to bring the matter into the
At the last meeting of the company , 13. F.
Smith of Boston , resigned us a director , to
maintain harmony , and L. 13. Williams was
elected in his stead. The board now com
prises the following gentlemen : Frank

tor I'nddock , Captain Ilustln , W. V. Morce ,

Will Not Consolidate.
"Tho rumors of an impending consolida
tion between the Omaha Street Hallway com
pany and the Omaha Electric Motor company
are entirely unfounded , " said a largo stock
holder of the street railway company yes
terday. "So far as our people have any
information uo ona of our directors has pro-
contcd a proposition from Mr. Amos , Mr.
Dillon , or any other capitalist , looking to u
union of these interests. As a matter of fact
the Omaha Street Hallway company is going
ahead in thofucoof all obstacles , legal and
otherwise , which the motor company has
thrown In its way , and is preparing to give
tlo ) citizens of this city the best united coble ,
electric and horse railway system that exists
anywhere in the United States. Had it not
been for the persistent and vicious attacks of
the electric motor company upon our system ,
the solo object of which seems to have been
to force us to take them into the fold nt their
own figures , wo should long before * this have
built two miles of additional cable
railway. The only result of the
opposition has been to stir up
n publlo opinion In favor of
additional electric railways , uo mutter
whether the rights of ho public were in
vaded , as we still bellovo they are , by thn
erection of overhead poles and u mid-street
trolley. Uoforo the creation of this unjust ,
and to souio extent adverse public sentiment ,
our company was earnestly studying the
storage battery s > stem. Four of our direc
tors spent three weeks In New York in in
vestigating the Fouith avenue line , which is
controlled by the Vandcrbllts , and upon
which the storage buttery system Is
now to a limited extent In opera
tion. When they loft Now York every
indication pointed to the adoption within six
months of the stoiago battery system upon
the Fourth avenue Hue. When it is con
sidered that such a system will bo operated
' under the control of the Vnndorbilts , con-
/ scrvatlvo and shrewd business men , It can
bo HCCII what we , as well as the people of
Oiijulm , have probably lost by being forced
to compete with the poles and overhead wires
of the electric motor company.
"So far us wo are ublo to ascertain , the
only object of thosn attacks upon our com-
jinny by the motor corporation is in the in
terest of Mr. Ames and Mr. Dillon , and has
for its aim the discrediting of our securities
and the depressing of our stocks by tout ,
norary wilts which will not xvin In the end ,
nnd in order that wo may bo forced at some
future t'uio olthor to consolidate with the
motor company or sell our Investment at do-
prcclutnd Jlguics to Amos , Dillon & Co. You
can bo uaaurod that this scliemu will not
win. The Omaha Street Hallway company
huvo forty-live mlloii of track now In opeia-
tlon. nnd will BOOH add live moro of olcctrla
road , and propose to show the people of
Omaha which of the wairing corporations is
honestly iiltemuting to carry out its pledges
of the bcsl facilities and ample service to the
citizens of Omaha. "
To Extend Its lilno ,
The Qtnana street railway company has
applied for a permit to extend its line from
Park avenue aud Pacific street , west to

Coinminsioiicrs ClmrKo Myers With
lliimhiicuin ; ; Them A ulii.
Architect Mjors , of the new county hospi
tal , sent the board of county commissioners ,
yesterday afternoon , a communication in
reply to the recommendations of John F.
Soots , superintendent of construction of the
liospital , on the proposed changes , relative to
putting in four or more one-inch rods across
the extreme ends of the noith and south corridors
riders , as recommended by the superintend
ent , the architect says ho fullv approves of
the plan , for the reason that the arches have
been so built and the centers removed be
fore the cement has had time to become eufll-
cicntly hard , that the walls have spread , and
to remedy the evil these rods become an act
ual necessity. The architect says that had the
arches beou properly built aud sufficient
time allowed for the cement to become
thoroughly sot , there uovor would have been
any necessity for the rods. Mr. Rivers also
recommended the placing of boilers in the
room Intended for fuel , setting the rear of
the boilers about tiireo feet from the rear
wall , so as to allow access to the return
pipes , and that the boilers bo sel four feet
deeper. This will require the sio.im supply
pipes to bo run directly under the arches.
Ho asked that the cast Iron cover over the
pipes that arc laid below the basement lloor
bo omitted , and that the cost thereof bo de
ducted from the steam contractors' proposal.
In the examination of the specifications on
the brick work , Mr. Myers asked that It
bo ascertained if the spccitlcations had
been fully complied with. The n/tchltect
also suggested that all the iloor.s of the corridors
riders and rooms bo furnished as follows :
That 2x4 pieces bo placed sixteen inches be
tween their centres , cut to fit the biiek
arches and tilled up between the timbers and
oven with cement moi tor. After the lloor is
laid , aud after nil work is completed in any
room or corridor , the surface is to bo
smoothed off and then to receive two coats
of linseed oil.
The communication was not exactly what
the board wanted. Mr. Coots made several
recommendations that the architect , It is
said , evaded entirely. The board sent him
several papers to RICH in concurrence with
the proposed changes , and ho returned , by
way of reply , the communication. *
Speaking to Chairman Mount , when the
communication was icad , Mr. O'Kcoflo
stated that the board ha < l been humbugged
uL'uiu by Myers.
"Ho thinks wo arc n lot of fools , nnd ho is
playing us ns such , " said Mr. O'Keoffo.
"That communication is not what wo asked
for. Wo either wauled a favorable or an un
favorable opinion on bupurintondent Coots' '
recommendations , which were sent to Myers .
the early part of the month.
'I he communication will bo rmid for action
at Saturday afternoon's meeting of the
The Western Art AnHoolation ,
There was a large attendance- the art ex

ON rnoitlUlTION. ,
lit * linn Very lilttlo to SAJT on the filch
A largo nudleiico filled Y. M. C. A. hall
last night to hoar Sam Small lecture on prohi
bition. About iilnc-tcntti.s of the audience
were disappointed , occauso they had antici
pated hearing something new on the subject ,
though It must bo saldthoy were entertained.
Mr. Small Is something of ncomcdlnn , fairly
successful In the art of imitation , and'well
up as n bully-rapgcr. Much of his address
was devoted to attempts at smart sayings In
derision of certain ministers nnd church
members who were so unfortunate M to have
views of tbolr own on the prohibition nuos-
It was expected that Mr. Small would
sail into high license , but the only critical
reference ho made to that kind of a law was
. "It ts n great high lie without any sense-
simply n machlno patct.tcd by the devil for
politicians to c.irvo out buzzard dollars , to
place on the eye of dcatl consciences and
make the corpse look respectable. "
Further than u statement that the prohibi
tion amendment had been submitted In this
Btto ! } In obedience to a largo publlo demand ,
ns ho put it , and that , in his opinion , thu
republican party hero would bo damned If
that amendment Is defeated , Mr. Small's
uddress was general , mid virtually a repeti
tion of the stereotyped tcmpornuco lee-
turo. Ho railed at saloons , ubuscd
every man who opposed prohibition , and
gave illustrations of his own experience.
The substance of his arcutnunt wus that the
wnvo had started and would eventually
sweep this country. The1 defeat in Massa
chusetts , the bluckoyo from Michigan , and
the sure set back to bo given by Pennsyl
vania soon , ho a.ild , will only increase the
determination uf men like himself to push on.
Quito an admission was made by the
speaker in agreeing with these who urguo
the inoftlciency of state laws , such ns Iowa
and Kansas have. As an answer to people
who ask why so mnuy government licenses
arc sold to dealers in Iowa , ho said it is be
cause they fear the government , but have
neither respect nor fear of the state law.
A PECUIilAU ACCIDENT.
A Mnn Probably Finally Injured By
n Klower Pot.
A peculiar accident happened on Fifteenth
street In front of the Barker block yesterday
afternoon , that will probably result fatally
to Svnn Johnson , a Dane , who lived on South
Sixteenth street. Johnson was passing
along the street , about 4 o'clock , when a
( lower pot fell from the fifth story of the
building , striking him on the head aud crush
ing his skull. The Injured man was carried
to Dr. Leo's ofllco and given medic. ) 1 atten
tion , after which ho was removed to St.
Joseph's hospital. His Injury was of a very
dangerous character , mid his recovery is
hardly possible. The flower pot was the
property ot Miss Mai tin , a stenographer for
the Jo-He Medicine company , nnd was
accidentally knocked from its place in .the
wlndoxv by the younp lady. Miss Martin ,
although In no way to blame for the mishap ,
was nearly crazed over the accident.
