resolution In favor of tbe Kosewater tran
ihtf ordinance unanimously adopied.
The matter aas brought up It W. H.
Green, a bo said: "Th people should be
given an opportunity to vote on 'he fran
chise proposed by Andrew Rosea-ater.
Omaha mul have cheap power, but It will
never be secured unless some man u given
an opportunity to Interest the capital
needed. Other cities are making prorreas
alone these lines and Omaba mutt not be
left in the rear."
City Attorney Council told cf tbe
recent anion of tbe council in this matter,
ret-ulting in tbe death of tbe Hae;:all ordi
nance. Tbe only ordinance abicb can bow
be passed in time for tbe sprirg election
it tbe pending ordinance granting a fran
chise to Andrew Roeewater nd bis asso
ciates. R. W. I'Tball spoke in favor of tbe meal
waellsaaa Here's Position.
Fred Hoye said that be supported tbe
Hascail ordinance honestly, but if tbe
people of thii city are sure that the pend
ing ordinance ia tbe pending one he a ill
aupport it; that while he in the servant of
the people be muni use his own Judgment
in the matter.
In response to Mr. Hoye. Mr. Green aaid
that taik of other companies amounts to
nothing, or tht y are all In the air; that
BO expense is attached to tbe city under
tha Roeewater ordinance; that he would
oppose any bonus by tbe city; that the
mosey cannot be raised unless a franchise
la first secured.
This resolution, offered by M. J. Feenaa,
Resolved. That the Southwest Improve
ment club urgently requests the city coun
cil to permit the people of Omens "to vote
i:pon the question -of rrar.tina a fremhlse
for an elect rie power company a proposed
by Andrew Roacwater. hs this auesttor ran I
be voted upon this spring at no additional
eajxnse to the rity.
Fred Brhame reported that but seventy
eighl feet frontage is necessary to give a
majority of the property along Twenty
fourth street, between Liravenwortb and
Mayon streets, for tbe change in grade, and
thst there are two property owners who
will probably sign this week representing
146 feet. 0 that thr ebans.e in grade is con
sidered practically secured.
Fred Htye reported thst he had fulfilled
his promise of the week before and a reso
lution for additional electric lights is be
fore the council.
The members of tbe club from tbe Sev
en! h ward took occasion to 'roast" D. T.
Mount for failure to attend to the work of
his office, particularly in the way of secur
ing Improvements for the Seventi ward.
Mr. Hoe aaid that tbe erty cannot be
adequately lighted until the coencil is al
lowed more money is the lighting fund.
M. J. Fernan gave a short history of the
club. Baying that its success In securing
Improvements for that part of the city is
dne to the fart that it has never taken any
part in politics.
K. 1 Entry, a resident of Omaha for
forty-one years, was present and gave a
talk on city improvements, dwelling espe
cially on the necessity of making all im
provements permanent where possible, es
pecially in the matter of grades, as changes
are expensive and one great change is much
better than several small ones made at dif

not occurred to them that there are rem

for Its cures. It is a liniment and ia called

that Chamberlain's Iwin Balm will cure

afi or the best doctor in Monon had failed

Mr. Jos. W. Currena. tbe postmaster at

are constantly grew nig. For tbe mor.th of
February the stamp sales aniounteJ to
S,48f.ltH This shows an increase of shout
1400 over tbe same morth s year ago.
Month by month tbe buriness of tbe potit
ofUce here Increases. This increase is not
alone confined to stamp aales. but pertains
to the money order department as well.
Februery is generally confide red a dull
month, but ibe compa"lson shows thtt tbe
oSoe here etceeCod the expectations of tbe
postmaster. March If s good month and
heavy receipts rre looked for. With tbe
rapid Increase in buFiners there Jr a de
mand for more help and it is understood
that noon tbe pot mart c-r will ak for more
clerks and the chances are that there will
le need of one cr two additional carriers.
As it is now tbe carriers have sll tbey ran
do to cover their routes in tbe allotted
time. With eves one mere carrier the
service could be improved to a considerable
extent, although there is no complaint to
be made on the present delivery service.
Tb station at the Exchange buiidinr. has
taken away a portion of the busloest from

tbe live stork dealers, as the maile are

only a superintendent and s c Icrk. but

All over the city improvements in r.ide
walts are being made and the city officials
decltre that it is no more than right to
compel the Board of Education to lay good
walks arcund its property at Twenty-third
and K streets. The walks in front of the
school property on K street are in a very
bad condition, while on Twenty-third street
there is no wslk to speak of at all. A
notice Is to be sent to the board by the
council soon in relation to this matter of
repatrs and the customary thirty days'
notice will be given. In case repairs ore
not msdc within the time limit the city
aill do the work and then endesvor to col
lect the coFt from tbe school district.
M ore Cars Ordered.
Local packers have Just filed an order
for a large number of refrigerator cars.
There has been a scarcity of cars for the
carrying of packing bouse products for
some time and tbe shortage has caused an
order to be sent to St. Louis for the im
mediate construction of 1.000 cars. Cudaby
and Salft are the purchasers. At the
present time Armour has plenty of cars.
but the other packers are short. The cars
ordered are to be delivered as soon as
possible. Each car corts about tl.ftf and
pays for itself in three yeara. The life of
a refrigerator car is rated at seven years,
so that the earnings for four years are
clear profit to the oa ners.

The tendency of medical science is to
ward preventive measures. The best
thought of the world is being gives ta
the subject. It is raster and better to
prevent than to cure. It has been fully
demonstrated that pneumonia, one of the
most dangerous diseases that medical men
have to contend witsv-can be prevented Ity
the use of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy.
Pneumonia alasys results from a cold or
from an attack of infiuenza (grp), and it
has been observed that this remedy coun
teracts any tendency of these diseases
toward pDeumonia. This has been fully
proven in many thousands cf cases in
which this remedy has been -used during
tbe great prevalence of colds and grip
In recent years, and can be relied upon
with Implicit confident. Pneumonia often
results from a slight oold when no danger
is apprehended until it is suddenly dis
covered that there is fever snd difficulty
in bresthing and pains in the rhest, then
it is announced that the patient has pneu
monia. Be on tbe safe side and take
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy as soon as
the cold is contracted. It always cures.
