Watchmen at Grade Orossiagi Get Some
Attention from Railroads,
COUNCIL BOUND TO HAVE PROTECTION
Ordinance to . fover Point Will Bo

Prar or Furor, Soy the
At the meeting of the city council on
bext Monday night an ordinance will be
introduced requiring the railroads passing
through South Omaha to maintain watch
men at grade crossings.
It la inserted by members of the council
that not long ago a request was mad of
the railroads to place watchmen at cross
ings In the business portion of the city.
The request was refused, the railroad offi
cials c'almlng that the city had no , right
to mako any such request. When this re
ply was received tho councllmen got their
heads together and looked over the oral
nance book. It was found that no ordt
nanoa was In existence regulating such
matters. Councilman Brodertclc has i
. cured the passage of a motion directing
the city attorney to prepare an ordinance
locating a watchman at every grade cross
Ing within the limits of Bouth Omaha. If
the ordinance is drawn as the motion di
recta and is passed the railroads will be
compelled to employ quite a number of
men to guard their grade crossings. No
particular crossings are mentioned, as the
motion directs the city attorney to Include
all grade crossings.
There Is another 'demand to come, and
that la the placing of electric lights at all
roarings. This matter la to be looked into
after the ordinance compelling the placing
Of watchmen Is passed and signed by the
mayor. Members of the council In the city
say that they propose to see that the ordi
nance governing watchmen at grade cross
ings is passed.
As soon as the material can be secured a
number of crosswalks will be laid In dif
ferent parts of the city and repairs will be
made to walks. At the last meeting of the
council the members of that body re
quested the laying of a large number of
crosswalks and Mayor KouUky stated that
he was in favor of having the street de
partment do this work Just as soon as pos
sible. It will be neceuaary first to ob

will be handed In next Monday night, and

President of Sheriffs Assoelntton
Sounds Alarm for Necessity
"Crime Is on the Increase," said President
Btelner of Dubuque, In his address at the
twelfth annual convention of the Interstate
Sheriffs' association, which he called to
order at 11 o'clock yesterday morning In
the criminal court room. In the ab
sence of Will L. Talbott of Pontlac, 111.,
J. W. Dreger of Minneapolis, Minn., was
appointed temporary secretary.
City Attorney Wright, on behalf of Mayor
Moores, who Is confined to his home by
illness, welcomed the delegates, saying that
the office is one of the oldest in Anglo
Saxon Jurisprudence and that as the oldest
representatives of law and order Omaha
Is glad to receive them; that association
la necessary today because the people look
to the sheriffs more than to any other to
enforce tha lawa.
R. B. Montgomery welcomed the dele
gatea on behalf of the county, acting In
the absence of County Attorney English.
He took occasion to Invite the delegates to
visit South Omaha before they leave the
President Btelner responded to the ad
dresses, saying in part:
"Our conventions differ very materially
from other conventions. The sheriffs and
their associates are unlike msny ' other
bodies, for j they have not the aame sub
jects for consideration. Our meetings are
not so much for the transaction of busi
ness as for the purpose of the members
becoming acquainted with each other. The
subjects discussed at our meetings are
usually those pertaining to the detention
of orlmlnals and their treatment; laws gov
erning sheriffs; salaries, duties, etc. -
"Crime is on tha Increase and this being
so makes., all tha mora necessary - tnorough
organsetloh of the officers who have to
do battle with the criminal, for aa you
are well aware, soma branches of tha
class are very thoroughly organised and
oan keep the officer guessing as to the best
way to bring the criminal to Justice. Aa
a matter of fact no officer has as much
to contend with as the sheriff and more is
expected from him than from any other
officer. It therefore behooves us to get to
gether, discuss matters pertaining to. our
official duties, exchange Ideas and thus
become better fit to meet the expectation
of our constituents."
The auditing committee approved the
accounts of the secretary treasurer and tha
report of that officer was received showing
a balance on hand of tl00.oo0.00.
