THE OMAHA DAILY BEE: SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 16. 1005.
AFFAIRS AT SOUTH OMAHA
Fnblio Improvements Are Getting Much
Attention Jest Now.
BIG CAMPAIGN IS WELL UNDER WAY
I nrfrtdntr Exists Onlr Detail,
for the Work Mnst Bf Well
Carried Oat When
Public Inoprovrments fr.rme en Issus In
South Omilu at the present time. There
never was a time when so many hi Im
provements were In contemplation, and
to line the language of a prominent rlty
official, there never was a time when the
Improvements planned were so uncertain.
There are the newer bonds, the two blK
paving contracts and the city hall and
park Improvements so Ion discussed.
None of them seem absolutely certain at
the present time, although it Is considered
by those who profess to know, that at
least the pavlna; Jobs will be carried
through at an early date, or as Boon as the
work can be done.
The sewer bonds constitute a big propo
sition. The city Is facing a suit on ac
count of Mud creek, which the new sewer
system wll probably dispose of for good.
The finance committee of the city council
la still deliberating as to the amount of
money, required to bluld the proposed
sewer system, and It Is understood that
the amount will be no less thnn $240,0(10.
I'nder the new law this city con expend
but IJ60.000 for sewer purposes.
Readers of The Bee are quite familiar In
' a general way with the plans drawn by
City Engineer Rosewater of Omaha, at the
request of the city council here. The plans
. contemplate a complete sewer system, and
members of the council are Inclined to be-
Here that the plans ought to be adhered
to pretty generally when the system to be
voted for Is finally designated by the
council. It Is believed that such an under
taking should be deliberately undertaken,
when so much Is Involved, and when It Is
considered too, Ihat the system of sewers
" contemplated would, when constructed,
.. withstand the ravages of time long after
i the present generation Is gone.
Place Voting; Machines.
City Clerk Qillln Is placing a number
of the new voting machines In as many
places throughout the city to enable the
voters to learn the machines as well as
possible before the election. One machine
has been placed at the barber shop of
Frank Flttslmmons, Twentieth and L
. Itreets, another at the Arthur East build
ing on South Twenty-fourth, still another
on West L street and others will be placed
elsewhere. The authorities are well
(leased with the Interest manifested in the
machines and It Is believed that, with the
. learning the voters will acquire at the
' primaries, they will be enabled to use the
machines Intelligently on election day,
Rain Does Damage.
The recent rains have done a conslder
tble amount of damage In various ways to
louth Omaha. The electrical feature of
:he storm Is probably responsible for In
terference with the electric light plant,
which has been more or less bothered, and
In some Instances the telephone company
has had trouble. The washouts, already
bad were made much worse by the down-
pour of Friday evening, and the street
gang will find trouble In repairing the
worst places for several days to come.

WHY IVORY IS eYpENSIVE
Task Borers In This Country on the
Jump for Bargains Workers In
the Material Are Few.
It Is a curious fact that notwithstanding
the marked advance In the price of Ivory in
recent years the volume of sales has hot
diminished, but has actually Increased.
Tusks have been selling In the markets of
Iondon and Antwerp at an advance of
about 50 per ent over the prices charged a
few years ago.
The causes which have lead to this ad
vance In price are very Interesting. It Is
not due to any artificial manipulation of
the markets, In the great centers, nor Is It
due to Increased demand or scarcity of ele
phants. For the cause we must look to the
heart of Africa where a spirit of genuine
commercialism Is manifesting Itself among
the natives. Their wealth Is In Ivory', and
they have learned to value It as such. In
deed, the wealth of leading men among the
natives was once commonly counted in
They would say of a dusky capitalist of
this kind that he wae worth so many tusks.
Just as one In this country would say that
a man Is worth so many dollars Of course,
that was a natural phase In the develop
ment of a primitive people. The red man
estimated his riches In wamptim, and the
Laplander In furs. They often would part
with their possessions for a few beads or
trinkets. They did not know the value of
a dollar. Certainly It can no longer be said
of the natives of Africa that they do not
know the value of money. They have
learned. Thus It comes that the "heathen
In his blindness" Is not so blind as has been
Increased transportation facilities and
telegraphic communication have brought
Africa Into closer touch with the rest of
the world. It Is said that a native may be
working 1.000 miles In the Interior, and yet
he can quote you the cash value of tusks
In the Antwerp or London market.
Of course. It Is a far cry from Africa to
the United States, and yet there la a very
good market for Ivory in thla country. Alert
and enterprising buyers are always on the
lookout for opportunities to pick up good
tusks. If Bostock or Barnura & Bailey
ever chRnce to have an elephant die on their
hands In this country. H Is not a dead loss
to them by any means. It Is likely that
an energetic buyer of Ivory will be bidding
for It before the carcass is cold?
American manufacturers confine them-
selves mainly, though not exclusively, to
such workings of Ivory as are appropriate
for toilet goods. The process of manu
facture Is a delicate one, requiring consid
erable skill. A tusk weighing, say, from
seventy-five to 125 pounds, Is bolted to a
moving table, on which It Is sawed Into
plates. During this stage the tusk has to
be kept thoroughly wet down to prevent
burning, as Ivory Is very hard and a good
deal of heat Is generated by the friction.
From these plates or flat pieces various
rough shapes are sawed out, according to
the forms or designs which are to be per
fected later on. In sawing out these shapes
care has to be taken to avoid spots or blem
ishes In the Ivory, and at the same time
guard against wasting valuable material.
To be able to do thla good Judgment and
discrimination Is one test of a good work
man In Ivory, and the number of men who
are competent to do this kind of work Is
very limited. Indeed, Ivory working seems
to be a "select" sort of craft. Into which
but few are Initiated. Jewelers' Weekly.

ARTIST OF HIE SHELL GAME
Cy Warmen'e Becolleotiene of Soapy Smith,
Who Died Suddenly.
WORKED CREEOE WHEN CREEDE WAS HOT
Characteristics of. a Smooth sharp
Who Gravitated Over the Westera
Hemisphere Etching- of
Life In Creede.
Some of the most entertaining features
In the busy ilfe of "Soapy'' Smith were
overlooked by The Bee correspondent,
whose ruminations at the Skagway grave
side of the noted gamester appeared In
the last Issue of The Sunday Bee. Smith
was one of the pioneer sports of Creede,
Colo.. In 1892, and the way he worked the
game In that noted silver camp Is told by
Cy Warman, editor, historian and poet
of Creede. Listen to Cy's tale:trl
With a press franchise, a force of print
ers, a lead pencil and a power press, the
writer had gone to the booming camp to
establish a morning paper, with a telegraah
service, In a town that had been In ex
istence but three short moons and was
not yet definitely located on the maps.
It was March, 1892, and that means mid
winter In the mountains, 8,000 or 10,000 feet
above tidewater. The snow was blustering
down Windy Gulch and flecking the felt
hate that covered the heads of the motly
multitude that was buying lots from the
state land board that had come up from
Denver to sell the school lands upon which
the town had been built. Lots sold at
auction for $100, J1.000 and even 15,000, that
had been worth nothing the year liefore
and were worth little more than nothing
a year after the sale.
The water washing down the dumps
was bad, the whisky was worse and many
men were sick.
Having secured a lot by the side of the
little river that ran through the camp,
the first payment upon which was $100, we
turned, tired, cold, homesick and hungry,
to walk away.
In a little bushless spot by the roadside
was a board shanty upon the door of which
was tacked a tin beer sign. Inside half
a dozen worklngmen laborers or miners
they might be were sitting on the wooden
benches about the stove. They had been
In animated conversation, but hushed It
as they noted the entrance of a newcomer.
A Business Venture.
One small man with pale, lusterless
hair and cold trray eyes, was recognizable
as Tom, the shell man "Troublesome
Tom," they called him. I had seen a car
penter pause at Tom's three-legged stool
that day, watch the game for a moment,
then slowly slide his tool bag from his
shoulder to the ground, put $5 on the table
and pounce upon one of he shells. He lost
his $5 and $2 more, called the shell man a
thief and demanded his money back.
"Yes," said the man with his cold eyes
fixed upon the top of the mountain, "I
presume that's what you wanted with
my money to give It back."
Now the carpenter was pushed aside by
a man who could guess. This man was
able to win three times out of five.
Seeing Viat the game could be beaten a
merchant from 'Denver put down $10. tried
again and lost. Crumpling a $60 bill In
his left hand, the merchant watched the
two half shells for a moment and then
made a grab. "Turn It over, turn It over,"
he demanded excitedly, dropping the crum
pled bill. Tom turned it over, but there
was nothing In It nothing for the mer
chant. "Why didn't you turn it yo'sef?" said a
man with a southern accent and a full
black beard: "that fellow's a shark."
The merchant glanced at his questioner,
flashed another bill and watched the shells.
Suddenly he nailed one of them. "Take
yo' hooks off that shell," said the dark
man to Tom, "and let the gentleman turn
"I don't see any money," said Trouble
"There's my money," said the merchant,
dropping the bill.
"You fcet fifty?"
"I bet the bill," answered the merchant.
Now the shell man moved his hand from
the shell and allowed It to hover over the
The man turned the shell slowly, but the
pea was not there. Even as he turned It
Tom's velvet fingers closed on the $100 hill.
Now this same man with the Georgia
pronounclatlon came from behind the pine
bar and spoke to me. He had no whiskers,
but I"eould swear that this was the man
that had helped the merchant play oft tho
"Yo th' a'tlst that's goln' to staht the

"Yes," I answered, and as my eyes wan
dered over Ihe faces of the company my
mind went hack to Denver.
"flood bye," Colonel Arktns of the News
had said; "when you come back you'll be
wearing a wooden overcoat." There wns
something In the air of this place that re
called the colonel's prophecy.
"Ooln' to make wah on the gamblahs?"
asked the dark man.
"Not for gambling."
'What fo', then?"
"Pandbngs, six-shooters and masks," was
"Well, seh, If that's yo' gait we can gal

That Is the way we became acquainted,
goapy ae Friend and Funeral Director
Iter, when Bob Ford, the slayer of Jcsie
James, got gay and shot up the town, the
Chronicle roasted Ford. Ford said he
would go kill Taber. the local man, for crit
icising his conduct ; Hartlgan, the city ed
itor, for printing It, and the editor for run
ning such a paper.
Now came Soapy, of his own motion,
standing for the editor, who was unarmed,
and the desperado was awed Into quiet.
And that Is the way they became
Oamhler Joe Slmmens, one of Soapy's
"working men," died suddenly two days
before the first Issue of the Chronicle,
and Soapy gave him a big funeral. Stand
ing at the open grave, he opened cham
pagne, pouring some Into the grave and
drank some, saying as he did so: "Here's
to Jee's soul over there. If there Is any
over there," and passed the bottle to his
The description of that funeral which
Hartlgan wrote for the first Issue gave
the Chronicle a start and made It wel
come at the exchange table before It was
two days old.
It's a mistake to aasuma that gam
biers do no good. Joe Slmmens helped
make the Chronicle.
One day a man came over from Chalk
Creek to burn a lot of money that he
had Just received for a group of claims.
At dusk, when he entered the Chronicle
nffl.ee his trousers were stuffed like the
trousers of a foot ball player stuffed with
money. His face was flushed and his eyes
dancing. He was a miner by profession.

at the Albany for a midnight feed.
In the twilight of the following day he
oalled again. He was not nearly so frisky.
The stuffing was gone from his trousers
and the twinkle from his eye. Pulling a
chair up to the reporter's desk he began to
pour out the story of his undoing.
Hartigan, seeing a smile beginning to
play about the smooth face of the reporter,
went over to give Taber an assignment,
and Vaughn, the master mechanic (and
general manager In the editor's absence)
came In from the back room.
Half an hour later the man went out.
"Say," he called back from the door, "you
don't need to mention names, but I'll stand

Taber had written the heading for the ex
pose in the presence of the Chalk Creeker,
and he had cheered and applauded It.
When he picked up the paper on the fol

that It had not been changed or softened.
A few weeks later Soapy came In one
afternoon with two revolvers, a rifle and a

After consulting Vaughn, the foreman,

congressman passed into his yard he
glanced over the low fence, and saw hie
neighbor's boys sitting on the scant lawn,
each with a box of berries between his

"It seems strange tr me," said A. B.
Hunt, who Is one of a group of men seek
ing a telephone franchise for an Independ
ent company In Omaha, "that we should
be met at every step with such strong
opposition, without any good or sufficient
reason being offered why such- a franchise
should not be granted.
"This new company Is to be an Omaha
and Nebraska concern, backed by Ne

"Here are our business organlxatlons
spending large sums of money and much
valuable time to draw trade and attract
friendship to Omaha; now, when we offer
to put In operation a powerful Instru
mentality for that very purpose, we are
hindered and blocked In every possible way
by the monopoly which happens at present
to have control of the local field.
"We have made the most liberal offer
for a public franchise ever made in this
city. It Is In line with the best develop

ask simply that the people be given a
ohance to vote on the proposition. What
possible argument can councllmen present
against that proposition?
"For several years I have stood ready to
take such a franchise, and our first at
tempt to secure It resulted In a material
reduction In the rate charged for house

A MODEL LODGING HOUSE
Neve Yorlc Poor to Have an Abode
Ineqoalled for Comfort and
Poor men and women are to have a
lodging house which, In point of comfort
and healthfulness ,1s not equaled. Work on
the building will be started In about a
week, so that the house may be ready
for lodgers on January 1, 1906.
While providing every comfort and neces
sity, the charge to lodgers will simply be
that they abide by the rules and keep clean.
As a first Installment for the expense
of the new lodging house the city will pay
out $175,000 for Its construction. The site
selected for the building Is In the south
side of Twenty-fifth street. Just cist of
With a large dining room, where good
food will be served, many baths, comfort
able beds, a large court and a roof gar
den, those who go into the house will find
better accommodations than they receive
In any of the lodging houses In the city
where a charge Is made. While through
the medium of a fine, free lodging house,
the city Is attempting to Improve the con
dition of houses where a charge Is nade,
It Is also providing, through the lodging
house, to reduce the number of men In
the city who do not work.
In the new house there will be accom
modations for fiofl persons BOO men and
100 women. There will be two entrances
In Twenty-fifth street, one for men and
the other for women, who on entering the
building will be ushered Into separate re
ception rooms. From there the men will
go to the basement, where they will leave
their street garments, and pars under
warm shower baths Into a drying room,
where they will be given night clothes.
After that they . will, be taken back to the
first floor, Into a large dining room where
"" f healthy food will be served.

Before going to their baths all the men
will be examined and those suffering from
disease will be sent to separate baths and
after that a separate sleeping room.
On the second floor of the building are
the baths for women. Each of these Is
separated from the others by a partition.
After disrobing no man or woman will he

passed through a disinfecting room.
Although It will be extremely easy for
all persons to get Into the new lodging
house. It will be another matter for some
to get out. On passing out every person
must pass a window, where watchers will
