FIGHT ON ELECTRIC WIRES,
Street Eailway and Electric Light Com
pany Likely to Lock Horns.
FORMER WANTS MORE TIME TO BURY WIRES
(.tty Electrician Mlchaelsen Alio
Oppose the Estenalon Because it
Will Retard Redaction of
A sharp light In the council is Indicated
over the ordinance introduced Tuesday
l ight by Councilman. Ev ins which seeks to
ixtend the time when electric light, heat
nd power wires in the downtown districts
iiav to b placed underground to October
Councilman Evans said the measure was
put in at the request of the street railway
company, which has wires supplying elec
tric current for light and power and cannot
conveniently put its wires In conduits until
i.ext year. As the proposition came with
out warning it was simply referred to a
lommittee, without debate.
The electric light peoplo regard the move
r. one designated principally to give the
itreet railway company additional grounds
f r assuming that its right to sell electric
current for light and power purposes Is
good because undisturbed by the city and
sanctioned on the "vested rights" theory.
The street railway company has no fran
chise authorising carrying on such a busi
ness; but for several years it has supplied
current to Hayden Bros., the Klopp &
, Partlett Printing company, the Byrne
l.'animer company and other large Arms.
The wires are run overhead and are af
fected by the general ordinances requiring
t'-e burying of all electric light wlrws.
For a long time the electric fight lnter
osts have been promising a war on the
rtreet railway company, but the fight has
rot been brought to a crisis. The Evans
ordinance Is expected to "bring this up,
because it Is regarded in the nature of
in assent by the city to the street rail
way company's rights In the premises. The
' subject is an old and very tender spot be
tween the two companies and Intimations
-e given that the fight In the council
ill be to a finish.
Mlcliaelaen Oppose Ordinance.
City Electrician Mlchaelsen ays that he
sill .oppose the ordinance. "Other and
nore Important matters sre involved thun

nd the electrlo light company," said he.
The Insurance companies promised this

I lys if the street railway ilght and power

BARGAIN DAY FOR CUPID
Saturday Economical Man Can Get

Down Two Cents.
Attaches of the office of the county Judge
are watching for the appearance Saturday
of a man who wants a bargain counter
marriage ceremony. The man. who is
thought to be an Ak-Sar-Ben visitor, called
up the county Judge's office Friday morn
ing and, Martin Bugarman answered the
'pt one. s-
"Is this where they sell marriage
licenses?" asked the man.
"What are they worth?
"How much do you charge for marrying
"Three dollars. That will make (5 cover
all the expense."
"Three dollars! that's too much. I'm
asking for a friend of mine and he doesn't
want to spend 16 for getting married. Can't
you cut a little on the ceremony price?"
"Well, we can't cut prices on Friday,"
sweetly replied Stigarman, "but tomorrow,
you know, is bargain day. You can get
the whole business done for 14.98."
"Thank you, sir, thank you; we will be
around In the morning."
And the man rang off. He talked so

OUR LETTER BOX.
III Defense of School Teachers.
OMAHA, Sept. 28. To the Kdltor of
The Bee: Please let me thank Mr. James
Richardson for his letter In The Bee de
fending our public school teachers. I do
not know the particulars of the case in
question and cannot express any views
thereon, but I was very much pained an-1
surprised when 1 saw such estimable men
as my honored old friends. Dr. Miller and
Mr. Samuel Burns rush Into print censvr
ing our Omaha public school teachers for
punishing a child without first thoroughly
Inquiring Into the facts which prompted
the punishment.. In the more than a quar
ter century I have been In Omaha I have
had six of my own children In our
public schools and I never once found
the teacher do an Injustice or a
wrong to any child. As for my part I
think we should be proud of our public
schools, the great bulwark of our country.
and that It Is every citizen's, and particu
larly tho parents,' solemn duty to stand
by the teachers. If we all do that there
will be no trouble with "corporal punish
ments," simply because no child would
need It. E. A. FOQELSTBOM.

Sugar and Coffee as Kan
Omaha has been put on an equal footing
with Kansas City for railroad rates on
toffee as well as sugar, or rather will be
after October 7. The wholesalers of Omaha
have made a fight to have. the same rate
given them on sugar and coffee from the
gulf as Is enjoyed by Kansas City, and a
recent circular says these rates are effective
after October 7. The rate on coffee per
hundred In carload lota has been 35 cents
from New Orleans to Kansas City and 38
cents to Omaha. After October 7 the rates
will be 35 rents to all Missouri river points,
including Sioux City. '

AFFAIRS AT SOUTH OMAHA
Mioh Interest Being Dinplsysi ii the
Sewer Bond Proposition.
SENTIMENT IS NOT YET CRYSTALIZED
All Admit Seed of Sewers, bnt Some
Inclined Balk on Addlna- Any
thing to Already Large
Property owners In particular and voters
generally appeal to be taking quite an In
terest In the sewer bond proposition. For
the last two or three days dosens of prop
erty owners have called at the office of
the city clerk for the purpose of looking
at the sewer map. This Is done by many
to ascertain Just how close the proposed
sewers come to their property. There
seems to be a I'ecling that the enlaige-
ment of the sewer system Is a necessity.
Positive opinions on the proposition am
not being expressed to any great extent.
The question Is to be given a thorough
canvass, as It Is the Intention to have the
matter discussed at public meetings dur
ing the campaign. Just at the present
time there seems to be more Interest In
the sewer bond than In many of the can
didates to be voted on in November.
Those advocating the sewers call atten
tion to the cases In the federal court to
compel the abatement of the Mud creek
nuisance. It was with the understanding
that the voters of South Omaha would soon
consider the sewer question that Guy C.
Barton and others agreed to let the pres
ent suits rest for the time being. From
those who did not take kindly to the
amount to be voted for sewers comes the
statement that the bonded debt of the
city Is now high enough and that interest
on $250,000 sewer bonds will amount to
nearly $12,000 each year.
The question of handling the count for
sewer bonds on the voting machines is still
unsettled. It has been suggested that In
case there Is no other way the tally can
be taken off the machines when the voting
closes at 6 p. m. and then lock the ma
chines and permit the voting of sewer
bonds to continue until 7 o'clock. Some
method will be devised for the voting on
the sewer bond proposition to continue un
til 7 p. m. on the day of election, but no
definite plan has been decided upon yet.
Vagrants Fare Juda-e Kins.
The South Omaha police are arresting all
suspicious characters and vagrants and aro
keeping them In a nice cool place during
the Omaha carnival. Of the dozen or more
before Judge King Friday nearly all drew
either a Jail sentence or a half dozen days
on the rock pile. The heads of the police
department here declare there Is llttla
thieving going on at the present time and
they only hope that the police Judge will
keep up the good work of sentencing va
grants and suspicious characters to the
rock pile. Some of the Idle class ordered
to leave Omaha are drifting down this
way, but the cars are watched closely and
often arrests are made as soon as a land
ing Is made here.
Celestial, Pay Taxes.
John Lung Chang, a Chinaman, formerly
of Chicago, but now a resident of Omaha,
called at the city treasurer's office Friday
afternoon and paid back taxes amounting
to $11!). Cl-ang owns lot 7. in block 92. which
he purchase! so;i!t? years ago for $4,600. The
valuation on this lot Is now $2,400. Chang
has only recently returned from China,
where he spent two years. He speaks good
English and was dressed In fashionable
clothes. ' "
Dr. Mcfrann TTas Runaway.
Friday afternoon Pr. W. J. McCrann was
driving along Q street near Forty-first
street, when his horse became frightened
at an automobile and started to run away.
There was a small-sized wreck before the
horse was stopped. Dr. McCrann was not
Injured. The buggy was partially de
molished and portions of the harness
broken. This Is about the nineteenth run
away accident that Dr. McCrann has been
mixed up In, but his usual luck stayed with
him and he was not Injured.

MUNGER ALLOWS THE APPEAL
Federal Conrt Grants Order for Heir,

Judge Munger signed the order Thurs
day afternoon allowing the appeal in the
case of the United States, against the
county of Thurston, Neb., In the Indian
heirship funds tax matter.
Judge Munger recently decided that the

The appeal is made on behalf of the

A YEAR'S JUNGLE KILLINGS
AppalllnsT Record of Haman Victims
of Wild Beasts In British
Tesr hy year records are published of the
destruction of human and cattle life by the
wild beasts and snakes of British India.
I.at year 24.578 human beings and 9G.??ft
cattle were killed, and of the people a.S27
deaths were attributed to snakes, while of
the cattle S0.00O were killed by wild beasts,
panthers being charged with SO.OoO of this
total; snakes accounted for 16.000. And this
Is but trifling percentage of the actual
annual mortality, as It excludes the feuda
tory states, with their 700.000 square miles
and 00.000,000 inhabitants, where no records
Last year 1.2R5 tigers, 4.S70 panthers and
leopards, 2,000 bears and 1,086 wolves were
killed; of snakes the real scourge of India
no record is possible, and , unfortunately
comparatively few nre destroyed.
The descent upon promising crops by deer
and pigs and monkeys, would be even more
serious to India and more expensive to the
natives were It not for the tiger, ranther
and leopard. This formidable trio of the cat
family practically police agricultural India
where It pushes Into the Jungle and makes
It possible for the poor native to exist
through cultivation of his fields.
Undoubtedly the depredations of the tiger
are overestimated, because It Is so feared
that wherever It prowls Invariable panic
spreads widely to its discredit.
Pnnthers are bolder In attack, more active
and more generally vicious than tigers; yet
they Inspire nothing like such awe among
the natives. Indeed, I have seen natives
rally to the defense of a dog, of which
leopards are particularly fond, when had
the Intruder been a tiger they would have
been paralyzed Into Inaction by very fear.
