Enforce tho "Scirenger" Law
QUESTION BETWEEN THETWOTREASUREKS
lleaalos Uelleves It Possible to Get
Record In shape lor Action
ThU Vear, but ElMMer
, Think Dincrcntly.
When the Ponrd of County Commlsslon
r meets this morning It will have
present a considerable delegation, which
will urgo an attempt to enforce the pro
vision" of the "scavenger" bill. More prop
erly the measure hns ceased to be a bill
and become an enactment by the provisions
of which the county treasurer may accom
plish the collection of delinquent taxes of
Douglas county by foreclosing on the prop
erty and selling the Judgments obtained to
the highest bidders.
Last week the matter was referred by
the commissioners to their committee of
the whole after the board had received
from County Attorney English a written
opinion In which he said that the provisions
as to dates of completing certain records
Beed not be strictly observed but that the
ults must be begun by July 1 If begun at
all this year. This chronological limitation
Is the point on which controversy now
rises. City Treasurer Hennlngs believes
' possible to have the records In shspe to
fcegln action July 1. Out County Treasurer
Elsasser thinks differently. The fmrner be
lieves that he can have his part of the
work completed about June 1 and then
pare half his force to the county treasurer
to assist In accomplishing the larger task
there. Mr. Elsasser replies that he cannot
use more men than he already has to any
material advantage, as they will be In each
other's way In Ms office.
Elsasser Anxious bot rtonbtfol.
Mr. Elsasser says he Is as anxious ss Is
anyone for the collection of delinquent
taxes, both city and county, but that he,
does not believe It possible to have his
compilations so nearly completed as to
make possible the filing of suits In district
court July 1, the date fixed by law.
The act was approved some time ago by
a Joint committee of fifteen, representing
the Commercial club, th Real Estate ex
change and cltisens, and to these various
Interests letters have beer sent notifying
them of the board's meeting this
morning and of the condition -which exist.
Each will have representation todny
and the matter will be quite fully discussed
iWore the board.
C'ty Treasurer Hennlngs says that the
act "provides an effective means for the1
collection of delinquent taxes, city, county
and state," and that "Its enforcement at
this time Is of the utmost Importance to all
Omaha taxpayers who pay their taxes, be
.Ciuse If the act be properly enforced taxa
tion In Omaha will next year be several
tlundred thousand dollars less than It will
te If matters are allowed to remain as af
F.eedlly admitting the truth of this as
rrtlon, others are still constrained to be
lieve that enforcement of the law which
enforcement Is optional with the county
board this year Is impracticable because
of the limited time, and today's meet
Ink promises to be one In which the condi
tion of the county's taxes, as well aa the
ondltlon of the county's books, will be
quite thoroughly aired.

iimittntiti of the Theaters,
The regular vaudeville season will be
brought to a close with matinee and night
performance at the Orpheum today, and
the ' advance sale indicates two big au
diences to climax the most successful sea
son the popular playhouse has ever had.
The bill la an exceptionally strong one and
was timely selected to leave a good and
lasting impression. To single out any one
aot for praise would be hardly in good
taste, for the good ones are numerous and
a large number of the "stunts" are espe
cially well calculated for the women and
children, who will attend In the afternoon.
This afternoon and tonight the last two
performances of "A Young Wife" at the
Boyd, one of the best things the Ferris
company has ever done here, will be given.
Sunday opens the new bill for the first
