who caused to be Introduced in congress a
bill for the pensioning of ex-slaves , had in
contemplation a movement to place a colored
presidential ttcUet In the Held next fall with
Mr. Douglass at its bead , boa created consid
erable talk among tno colored people in this
city. In connection with tbo proposition Mr.
Thomas Fortune , one of the loading public
spirits among the colored race , when inter
viewed on the subject today , said :
"As far as Mr. Voughan's proposition is

Claim Tlmt the Council Must Siiperlntuml
Kxpeiullturos for tliu Library Itullillng.
Tuesday night the council passed a resolu
tion authorizing the library board to proceed
witn tbo construction of the new library
building and approving tno action of tbo
board In Inviting competitive designs for
the building.
This action was opposed by Councilman
Elsastor. Munro aud Bruner on tbo ground
tbat tbo charter made it clearly tbo duty of
the council to perform the work which it has
by resolution delegated to the library board.
Section Ml of tbo charter reads : ' The mayor
and council shall have power to establish and
maintain public Ubtarioj , reading rooms , art
galleries and museums , and lo provide the
nocestary grounds and buildings therefor" ,
* * * It is bold by the opponents of the
council resolution that this being a charter
provislou , tliu council has no authority to
violatn it cither by ordinancs or resolution ;
that if the library bonrrl astumos the Unties
of tbo council In thU matter It can In no wlso
bo legally bold rciDonslbU- the citv or to
tbo taxpayers for any act done or loft un
It is argued further that every councilman
voting for this resolution will bo hold liable
under his Individual bond for any monies
misappropriated. Section 133 of the charter
plainly provides "that no liability shall bo
Incurred , debt created , or contract involving
tbo expenditure of money appropriated by
tbo council , except by n majority of the entire -
tire counpll upon nil tbo yean and nays nnd
the record of tliu council proreodlngs
hall show how each member voted. " This
section alto makes each councilman liable
under bis baud In cato ho votes away the
city's money la excem of loal limitations ,
' The council was wrong la adopting tbat
resolution , " said Councilman Elsasior. 1
opposed the measure , as I know that
the council could not confer any such
authority on the library board. It la
the business of the council tooxoonil that
$100,0iu anil to superintend ana let tno con-
true * far tliu Construction of the library build-
inp. Whv thn council adopted such a resolu
tion I can't understand. According to the
law Iu the matuir the council cannot give
anybody or uny board the right to construct
the building. How would toe public know
anything about wnat tbo library board
did In connection with letting contracts and
superintending such u structure ! Nobody
ovoratumds the mooting * of the library
board , ana It cannot bo given authority to
expand tliu city's monoy. However , I don't
think tbo resolution will ntund , as It will
bavo to go to the mayor , and when It roachnt
that dignitary U will probibly bo vetoed. I.
would roijuiro u yotoof twelve to pass it over
tha vote , und I ihlnk lout night only eleven
YJtcd for the measure. "

oil undoubtedly has tbo ncht if it wishes to
exercise it of controlling nil tno library work

unless they woujdrconsont to the payment of
excessive tolls. No one company would
undertake tbo construction of the bridge
alone , buta local syndicate had since been
irganizod and It ww proposed to construct
the bridge aud let nil roods cross their trains
on nfalr and equitable basis. Thfl Union
Paclllo company had defeated the project and
had secured contracts with some of the Iowa '
roads. This left matters In a shape where
the local syndlcatq was compelled
lo abandon the scheme , or alone
build the brldgo without anr
assurances that contracts for Its use conld
bo mado. Tbo money market was also in n
bad condition to insure the advancement of
many now enterprises.
As soon as the project of tbo local yndl-
cato was out of the way the Union Paclllo
wont back on nil of its oRrooraonts , botu as
to bridge tolls nnd switching charges , nnd
the city was loft nt the mercy of that com
pany , Tbo brldgo was not built , nnd consequently
quently the subsidy that was voted was
uovcr called for.
What II Will Dn for Onmlm.
In spoaklng of the benefits that Omaha
would derive from tbo construction of tbo
bridge , Mr. Dumont stated that the eastern
roads were anxious to got into Omaha , to
the Union stock yards nnd into the country
In tbo Interior of the state. At- least
$ 1.500,000 would bo expanded In the city
within the next two yeas. This would In
clude money paid out in tno construction of
tbo bridge , sldlngi , buildings and tunnelling
through the bills west of Twenty-fourth
street. Besides this , it would give Omaha
eastern connections with the Delaware.
Lacltawanna & Western , which was now at
Osage , la. ; it would give a route to Chicago
which would bo twonty-slr miles shorter
than the Burlington ; it would place Omaha
In direct communication with the lumber
districts of the north : it would open n mar
ket for Iowa hogs nnd catttoand in nil proba
bilities It would result In bringlug the Balti
more & Ohio railroad inlo the city. With
those roads hero Omnba would bo connected
with tbo great lakns , and wheat could bo
shipped to Chicago or ether lake ports nt u
rate of 7K cents per hundred weight. With
the eastern roads reaching Omaha , those
from the southeast would come and with
them would come the llvo ate < ; K that now
goes to Kansas City.
Willing to I'llIts Share.
Mr. Dumont said that tno achomofor securing -
curing the funds to build tbo brldgo and a
line of road into Iowa was feasible und that
Douglas county was not asiumloir any great
risk. Hli company was willing to spend Its
money in dom * this work for Omaha nnd bo
wanted to see If the voters of Douclas county
would stand by the proposition to beuelit
both city and county.
In reaard to tbo expenses attending the
election Mr. Dumont stated tbat his com
pany would pay oao-tbird and the two-
thirds ho thought should bo berne equally by
the city and the county.
If the brldgo was bulltbe proposed to mauo
a 10 cent passcnqor rate against a 135 ceut
rate charged by the Union Pacitln. A charge
of $2.50 per car would DO made on freight and
whoa the earnings of tbo.brldgo exceeded
7 per cent the excess would bo divided
amouif the roads paying bridge tolls.
Ho was auxious to have the commissioners
take seine action , as It was a matter of im
portance and delays' were dangerous , at
other cities were attempting to secure roads
that would come to Omaha if brldgo ratoj
and depot facilities could bo secured.
Iu regular session the board transacted
