FOR BETTER PUBLIC SERVICE
Maor Koore Suggest! 8eTaral Change b

THINKS INCREASE OF FUNDS NECESSARY

Speaking of necessary alteration In tb
tltjr charter. Mayor Moore (aid:
"The moat Important of the amend
ment, necessary for the practical opera
lion of the city roYernrornt refer to an
increair in the charter limitations to
he size of certain funda. At the prsa
nt time the fire fund la limited to 125,
900. Thl amount la not aufflclent to oper
ate the department and the limitation
should be increaaed to about $165,000. Thla
noe not mean that amount would be re
quired at all times, but It could be wisely
?ipendd tome years and It should be made
ivallafcle. At the present time the force
Inadequate for the beat results and one
or more companies should be added. The
t'ita now at the disposal of the city would
ao little more than pay the wife of the
men who ahould be emplored. to say noth
ln ' Incidental expenses. The city owns
11 but two of the bouses In which the
sompanles are now located, and these
housea should be repainted and repaired If
tbey are to ba maintained. The appli
ances of the department need many re
pairs, which cannot be made now for lack
of funda. These expenses might not come
every year, but when they do come there
fhould be provision to meet them.
"The limitation on the police fund should
be Increased. The force la not large
POnugh for the best service and more
men should be added when necessary.
"The lighting fund and the water fund
should both be Increased. There should
fee a large number of additional street
lamps In various parts of the town, while
there are sections of the city practically
without fire protection. In most Instance
the shortage of Are hydrants is In the
suburba where the houses are owned by
poor people, people who have thetr sav
ings Invested In the homes and because
of Insufficient protection are compelled to
pay high ratea of insurance.
SuKgeeta Slew Parlac Lawi,
"Another change which should be made
In the matter of paving the streets.
At the present time paving cannot be dona
except upon petition of property owners.
Some of yur best known citizens and
leavlest property owners will sign paving
petitions and the work will be hardly com
pleted before they are attempting to dis
cover some way In which to place the
;xptW of the work upon the city at large
and to nullify the special asaessmentii.
iV'rAt we ahould have Is a system whereby
ll1 city council and mayor can order the
',vlng of streets and the property owners
te given thirty days In which to file pro-
cats. If these protests are found to be sat
isfactory the resolution ordering the pav--ng
could be repealed. There la ao much
roperty owned by non-residents and those
.ho have little Interest In the streets
butting It that they will not move for
avlng, and the council should be In a
vsltlon to make them act. x -
"Then In the matter of salaries there
ithould b some changes. The police judge
' ' hould receive as much salary as a dla-
rjet Judge. The present police Judge
urns Into the city through Ones and cost
our Unas aa much aa his salary and -
''eta as much time to his work, aa asy of
.he judgs'ot 'the 'district' bene. ReTere
present charter waa enacted be re
vived $2,600 a year and there 1 no rea
ion why he should not get that much now.
t the police court the city prosecutor
i ecelves $t00 per year. This salary should
' e Increased to at least $1,00, ao a good
awycr can afford to give the work the at
ntlon It deserves.
a id the city comptroller should not re
vive as much Compensation aa the city
a.torney, the city engineer and a number
tif other officer. They devote their en
tire time to the work and $2,500 Is cer
tainly not too much to pay for the service.
"The fund at the disposal of the Board
of Health should be Increaaed, as the
health of the community depends upon
quick and sometimes very expensive work.
The par, board should also have the right
to expend mere moody.
"The railroads should pay higher taxea
thaa they have been doing and there are
sevaval other changes which might with
advantage be made, but they do not occur
to me Just at this time."

At Mora' Theater
Five acts of highly Intense melodrama
constitute "The Convlcfa Daughter," which
opened an engagement at Boyd's theater
yesterday afternoon, and the verdict of the
audience at that time was in favor of the
piece. The play Is by-4. A. Frazer, whose
achievement la neither a literary classic
or a strong composition In a dramatic
aense, but It possesses many of the eleV
ments of the successful melodrama.
The-central character of the play Is a
tramp, who Is naturally possessed of gen
erous and at time even noble impulses,
but I coerced by the man who knows the
secret of his escape from Elng Sing prison
Into various acta of villainy, until finally
hi manhood assert Itself and he rebels
In spit of the consequences. The ether
principal person of the play ar all. typi
cal of melodrama. x
Of the company as a whole it may be
said that tt la capable even beyond the de
gree of those usually to be seen In this
character of play. Miss Jewel DarreU is
a charming and convincing Edith, and In
the part of Weary Willie Mr. W. R. Ogden
earns the approval of hi audience.

According to the call Issued by Mayor
Koutsky, the charter revision committee
appointed by the council at Its laat meet
ing will meet In the council chamber at
7:30 o'clock tonight. The mayor said yes
terday that when the committee assembled
he would state the object of tbe meeting
and then would announce the election of a
president, vice president and secretary a
When the organization Is perfected It
Is expected that subcommittees will be ap
pointed tor te purpose of holding sessions
with the different beads of departments In
order that the needs of all of the depart
ments may be considered separately. The
plan la then to have the subcommittees
report to the entire committee and the
amendments to the charter read and dis
cussed. After this is done there will natur
ally be another revision before the pro
posed amendments are aubmltted to the
Douglas county delegation.
So' many features are to be brought out
that it will take the committee soma time
to do Its work If the proposed amended
bill Isxto be presented to the legislature
In the early part of the session.
A politician who happened Into the city
hall toward evening yesterday remarked
that It was noticeable that those most In
terested In framing the present charter had
not been appointed on the general com
mittee. This, he said, waa taken by many
as an indication that the charter as it now
stands was framed for the benefit of cer

Discredits Fabllshed Stories.
Within tbe last few days some Omaha
sheets have been publishing stories about
ths selling of diseased meats within the
city limits. When the attention of Mayor
Koutsky was called to this matter yester
day he said that. In his opinion, the stories
were circulated for the purpose of setting
public opinion against him because he bad
removed Clark Howard from the office of
city stock examiner. Tbe mayor said:
"Since these reports have come out I
have caused a thorough Investigation to be
made and I cannot find a single instance
where a butcher In South Omaha baa pur
chased a piece of diseased meat."
Joseph Koutsky, a brother of the mayor,
"It is a fact that at the request of my
brother, the mayor, I assisted In making a
thorough Investigation of the statements
made by certain Omaha papers, and some
local papers as well. I find the statement
untrue. In order to give the representa
tives trf those papers a chance to make
good and prove what they say, I will offer
a reward of $100 for the arrest and con
vlction of any individual who buy dis
eased animals in the city and slaughters
the same within tbe city limits. This
amount is now on deposit at the Packers'

Packers Getting: Coal.
Packers are still getting coal right along.
although there is no very large supply on
hand. Quite a large amount has been re
ceived during the last few days, during
tbe soft weather, and as the shipments
seem to come in with regularity It Is
thought here that the mine operators and
the railroads are making an effort to sup
ply the demand. None of the packers ap
pear now to fear a coal famine, unless ex
tremely cold weather should set in sud
denly. Such a condition. It is said, would
block traffic to some extent and thus delay
the delivery of coal already on track.
For local -coal dealers little If any coal
is coming In. Some bituminous oal Is
coming from the south, but there Is not
enough ' In the yards here now to last
through the winter ahould the supply be
shut off. As for anthracite, there is none
for sale In the city.

A report has been current on the streets
for a few days past to the effect that the
Burlington was going to build a depot at

old story which has been' going the rounds

that the Burlington would erect a depot
at Thirty-eighth and L streets and then
the street car line would bs extended out
