SPECIAL WORK FOR FLEMING
City Attorney Finds Job to Fill the Tax
TO REPRESENT CITY AT SCAVENGER SALE
Firming- Thinks Conflict In I.vr May
Yet Require Him to Make An
other City AiaeHiuent,
Tax Commissioner, Fleming will probably
bo designated by the city council as the
official representative at the scavenger tax
dales after May 1. The legal department
hug suggested that it will be economy on
the part of the city to have the tax com
missioner perform this duty, as under the
consolidation section of the charter his
active work on city usewsment rolls ceases
when he has completed and sent to the city
treasurer the rolls for the 1906 taxes. The
charter provides that the commissioner
shall onntlnu drawing the pay of his of
fice until v his terra expires, In May, 1906,
but he Phull do such work as the council
may direct. Mr. Fleming has announced
that he will discharge his office force as
soon as the rolls are sent down, with the
exception of one -assistant, probably R. D.
Wallace, who will remain in the office to
receive complaints regarding assessments.
It is necessary that the city have a rep

a little to the success of the sales, and
the amount of property acquired by the
city In this way has been comparatively
small. Harry Q. Counsman of the city
treasurer's office has been performing the
work for the city, but he has now re
signed and entered other business. De
partmental heads say iney can't spare any
employes, so the legal department has at
tempted to solve the difficulty without ad
ditional cost by suggesting that the tax
commissioner accept the post. A resolu
tion to this effect will be Introduced at
the council meeting Tuesday night.
Mr. Fleming's Position.
Tax Commissioner Fleming says: "Of
course I shall do whatever the council
orders, and If I am given Instructions to
attend the scavenger tax sales I shall do so.
I do not admit that the way to the aboli
tion of the city tax department this year Is
clear and that the county assessment which
the county assessor Is now making will
suffice for . the 1906 levy by the county com
missioners. I do not say that It will not,
but I maintain that the laws conflict and
that the matter Is anyhlng but clear. In
view of a possibility that the city may,
after all, have to make an assessment this
year, I shall do all I can toward shaping
up the usual summer work with respect to
real estate values. Of course. If my time
Is taken up at the scavenger sale and by
other work, I may not be able to do a
great dea4 of It, but I shall endeavor, so
far as possible, to be prepared for such an
emergency. The making of the city as
sessment does not begin officially until
September 15, so even if the courts do not
get a chance to and do decide the merger
proposition until that time we can still go
ahead and make the assessment. I am very
much afraid that the deal, so far as It
affects the assessing, is defective and can
not be made to work out properly so as not
to cause great inconvenience and confusion,
aside from the possibility of an Illegal as
sessment upon which nothing can be levied
or collected. I think it would be well If
some steps are taken so the courts can de
cide the question before September 15."

WOU N IN CLUB AND CHARITY.
Some excitement marked yesterday aft
ernoon's meeting of the Woman a club;
some traditions were upset, some pre
cedents established nnd Incidentally me
lub accomplished cne of those feats that
have earned for the sex of Its members
the reputation of being Incomprehensible,
unbusinesslike and a few other undesirable
things. After several weeks of prepara
tion for a union civil service reform pro
gram that should be Its rnrt In the great
woman's movement to educate the public
to the Importance of civil service reform.
the club restricted the mttendance at that
program to its members and Invited guests
and so defeated one of Its prime objections
In withholding Its benefits from many to
whom and through whom It might have
proven most profitable.
As to Automobile.
OMAH., Ap;ll 17, I905.-To the Editor of
Tho Bee: In your Sunday edition, in a
general discussion of the 19C5 automobile
season for Omaha and vicinity, you quote
Mr. W. Clarke Powell as follows: "The
one-cylinder engine is fast becoming obso
lete. The two, three and four cylinders are
the kind wanted nowaday. By having
more cylinders the Jar is lessened, and then
if one of the cylinders should happen to
give out tho -driver has the others to fall
back on to get him home."
In Justice to the line that I am hundllng,
viz: the Cadillac, which Is a single cylinder
car, and upon which I expect to depend
largely for my 1905 sales, I should like to
state that at the present time the Cadlllao
factory Is turning out forty-two single
cylinder cars per day, which Is more than
four times the quantity manufactured by
any factory he represents, and also that
nearly one-half of alj the machines that
will be sold In the United States during
1905, irrespective of make, will be single
cylinder cars. Furthermore, with the ma
chine brought up to its present standard, I
defy anybody to detect from the. amount
of vibration whether It Is a single or double
cylinder car, and we also challenge Mr.
Powell to drive any machine he may sell,
Irrespective of price, any place with a
load that we cannot drive our $750 runabout
containing two passengera. I trust that
you will, in Justice to the writer, publish
this reply. H. E. FREDRICKSON.
Several weeks ngo the club decided to
Invite the club of Smith Omaha and Omnha
to Join It In a union civil service meeting
April 24 and appoint a committee to pre
pare a program. Becaure the club treas
ury Is low, it was also decided to hold the
meeting the day of the club's twelfth an
niversary, the progrnm to he followed by
the reception. At yesterday's meeting the
chairman of the program committee, Mrs.
F. H. Cole, announced the following pro
gram: "Civil Service Rerorm in (lermany
and Oreat Britain," Hon. Edward Rose-
water; "Civil Service Reform In the
United States," Dr. George L Miller;
Institutional Work." Superintendent Bte-
wart of the State School for the Deaf and
Dumb; "Civil Service In the Public
Schools," Superintendent James McLean
of the South Omaha schools, and
Superintendent W. M. 'Davidson of
the Omaha schools. There will also be
music. At the conclusion of the report
there was a recommendation that the an
niversary celebration be limited to mem
bers and their out-of-town guests. Atten
tion was called to the fact that such re
striction might seem a discourtesy to the
guests for the program, and another mem
ber suggested that if It was impossible
to entertain all at the reeeprton arrange
ment might be made so that those wishing
to attend the program might be admitted
and dismissed through a separate door
At this Mrs. Andrews, the club's presi
dent, ruled that, according to the club's
constitution, outsiders are not eligible to at
tend the program, and when a member
stated that the program was not a regular
meeting and so not governed by the club
constitution, Mrs. Andrews announced
with some emphasis that the doors of the
club had been altogether too wide open
Another member appealed from the de
cision of the chair and though
one of the recognised parliament
arlans of the club pointed out
that, being an extra meeting, there was
nothing In the constitution to debar
guests, Mrs. Andrews still Insisted upon
her ruling and called upon the house to
sustain her. She further asked that the
women not only sustain her ruling, but
that they adhere to their constitution and
uphold the dignity of the club. The first
time the question was put there was silence,
The second time there were so few votes
on either side that a rising vote was called
for and upon count there were slxty-fou
votes to sustain and fifteen against the
decision of the chair. Many of tho mem
bers did not vote at all and it developed
later that many others had not under
stood for what they were voting, thinking
that an affirmative vote would make the

"For the excellent character of the designs; the execution of
