Prompted to precautionary action by the
recent hotel disaster In Chicago and the
enforced resignation of the building In
spector of that city. Building Inspector
Carter haa within the Inst few daya di
rected hla attention very closely to the
Are earape equipment of the hotels and
other large building of this city. Not by
any meana satisfied with conditions aa he
found them, Mr. Carter notified the man
agement of several of the hotels and one
or two business house that the number
of fire escapes on their buildings muet be
Increased before January 1 or he will ap
peal to the courts for enforcement of the
precautions which he considers necessary.
Discussing thin matter, Mr. Carter said:
"In compliance with the state law and
the ordinances of the city. C. E. Watson,
deputy atste labor commissioner, and I
made a thorough tour of this whole city
for the purpose of Inspecting fire escapes
on buildings where such protection la
neceeaary and recommending such Im
provements In that line as we might deem
to be necessary. We found many buildings
not sufficiently provided and recommended
a number of new fire escapee, not only on
hotels, but on flat buildings and business
Bouses, where there are large numbers of
Inspector Will Be Visitant.
"In reading of this Chicago disaster and
the consequences to the building Inspector
f that city I became convinced that I
could not be too vigilant In this branch of
the work and, although I knew our recom
mendations had been carried out In moat
Instances. I also feared that perhaps eome
of th buildings were not even yet properly
quipped. Yesterday I asked the chief of
the Are department to go with me and we
visited a number of the principal build
ings, Including the larger hotels and, whllo
wo found things generally In very satis
factory condition, there are some few In
stances where danger still exists. I And
that the flat buildings and practically all
of the business houses have been equipped
as directed. There Is one large firm whose
new building has not yet been furnished
with fire escapes, but they are to be put
on at once.
"I have named January 1 as the date
for the Improvements to be made, but In
ome cases It may be impossible to have
the work completed by that time. There
fore I shall not be captious about It and tf
I find that all diligence la being exercised
to comply with the requirements I shall
e satisfied. But if I should And that in
any cases the responsible persona are try
ing to evade what Is required of them by
law I shall take the matter directly to
the courts and prosecute to the fullest
Omaha Theaters Safe.
"I will say of our theaters that I believe
them to be as well equipped with means
of exit In case of Are as any In the coun
try. The managers of the houses now In
operation have cheerfully complied with
II suggestions and have fully equipped
their buildings with Are escapes and in
my scrutiny of the plans of the theater
bow being built that was one feature to
Which I gave particular atentlon."

legislature governing the rate of Interest

said: ,
"At the present time the school board
of the city of Omaha Is by law compelled
to psy 7 per cent Interest on the warrants
which are Issued and cannot be paid on
account of lack of funds. The average
amount of these warrants outstanding at
all times Is $100,000, which now according
to law represents an outlay of $7,000 per
year for Interest We have recently made
an arrangement with the banks of the
city by which they psy back to the school
board 2 per cent, making the net cost to
the board $5,000 per year. Under the pro
posed law this will be the amount which
the warrants will draw and no extra ar
rangement will be necessary to bring the

by the proper authorities of any county,

Thirty Hen Go Into the OrganisatiM at

Unionist Says Men Are Unwilling to
Sell Their Riant mm Cltlsens
for Tw and Half
Ceata avn Hoar, '
Thirty members were Initiated Into the
Street Railway Employes' union Wednes
day night, the largest number that has been
taken in at one time since the institution of
the union. According to the statement of
one of the employes and an active promoter
of the union, the large number Wednesday
was a demonstration against the action of
the officers of the company. He said: .
"Wednesday John Cahill, an employe of
the company, presented a paper to the non
union employes by which It was agreed
that in consideration of the fact that they
would not Join the union they would be
paid at the rate of 22 cents an hour.
while the rate of wages now in force Is
20 cents an hour. The petition was pre
sented on almost all of the line of the city
and was signed by six or eight of the non
union men. Cahill was told that If the
work was worth 22 H cents an hour that
rate should be paid, and If it were, not
worth that sum the mep would not sign
away their rights aa men for the addi
tional 2Vt cents an hour. Late in the even
ing Cahill reported to Superintendent
Tucker, saying that it was of no use to try
to disrupt the union, aa the men would
not sign, even for the consideration offered.
"The word was passed along among the
boys, with the result that we decided to
make the initiations Wednesday a record-
breaking affair. We were to a slight de
gree handicapped by the fact that a num
ber of the nonunion men had already
signed an agreement not to enter the union
when they were given employment. But
some had not signed the agreement and
others conveniently forgot the terms, so
that out of the thirty more than half ot
them were, possibly, men who had at one
time promised never to Join."
