city council last night. These ordinances
not only Include the vacating of portions
of street and alleys, but give to the Union

A communication from Secretary Berg-
iulst of the Fire and Police commission was
received relative to the defective Are alarm
system. The council wa requested to make
a contract with some reliable concern to
repair and maintain the fire alarm system.

The excavation for the freight depot
south of N street looks like a wreck.
Since the bursting of the water pipe there
no work has been done, except to brace
the walls of the excavation with heavy
timbers. Very heavy timbers have been
used to hold the west malls In order to
prevent the tracks from sliding into the
hole. An effort Is being made by the
Union Pacific officials to secure 'rom prop
erty owners on Railroad avenue lx feet
of the sidewalk space. So far this has
not been accomplished, and unless more
ground is secured the site of Oie proposed
freight depot will more than likely be
abandoned and another location chosen. In
this connection It Is rumored that the rail
road company would very much like to
secure possession of the triangle of ground
from N street south to O and from P.all
road avenue east to the alley. If this
ground could be secured at a reasonable
figure the freight depot problem would be
settled and there would be an abundance
of room for a good sired freight depot
besides a number of side tracks and
switches. The Delmonlco hotel, the Lister
block and a brick saloon anK.hotel build
ing stand on this property.
School Entertainment Toniakt.
This evening the pupil of the Hawthorne
school will give an entertainment st the
auditorium of the high school building.
A great deal of care has been exercised
In the preparation of the program, which
Is stated to be exceedingly Interesting. The
pupils who are to take part have been thor
oughly drilled, and judging from the num
ber of tickets sold the auditorium will be
crowded. A Mother Ooose cantata by the
little folks Will be one of the features of
th entertainment. The money derived
fromthls entertainment will be used in pur

H. F. Neher was arraigned In police court
Thursday on a charge of forgery. He
pleaded not guilty and waived a preliminary
examination. Judge King fixed the bona
at $1,000. As Neher was not able to se

to await trial. Several weeks ago Neher
passed a few worthless checks and drafts

has not made a stmt on the paving and
it is reported that he will not make any
effort to pave the avenue this year. The
street car company has not done anything
towards resetting Its tracks or putting
down heavier rails. Until this Is done the
paving cannot go forward. While the city
officials are anxious to have the paving
done this year It will more than likely go
over on account of the delay In getting
material for the new street car line,
Doing; Good Work.
Two doxen men are now working ten
hour each day on the street repair force.
Ungraded street are being rounded up,
washouts filled and wherever possible the
road machine 1 used to give the finishing
touches. New crosswalks are being laid
In many place where they are badly
needed and repairs are made to old cross
ings. Mayor Koutsky, who is giving this
work his personal attention, say that if
he ia given two week of good weather all
of the city' unpaved street will be In
good condition for the winter. In case the
ground freezes before any heavy rain fall
the roadway will be in condition so a to
be passable all winter. Where the road
machine cannot be worked to advantage
teams and scraner are used. The work
now being done Is mostly east of Twenty

LOBECK HAS A WORD TO SAY
Criticise Xaarer la Which Board of
Fire aad Police Haadled
Comptroller Lobeck has this to say of
the manner In which the Board of Fire
and Police Commissioners handled the po
lice fund deficit. Said he:
"I notified the commissioners In August
that there would be a shortage, but the
first action taken was considerably later,
when the department was cut nearly In
half on the plea of necessity. This act
caused it to be advertised to the world
that Omaha was prctlca::y without a po
lice force. I read It myself In a Chicago
paper. Naturally It Is fulr to suppose
criminals flocked In. In response to publlo
appeals we found a way to make tip the
deficit and did so promptly. The council
and other city officers understood dis
tinctly the money was to be used for pay
ing salaries and for no other purpose. In
stead of restoring the force at once the
commlFsloner proceeded to put It back
piecemeal, and the last bunch of men off
goes to work Monday. By reason of the
lay-offs It is announced money has been
saved sufficient to buy Hie patrol wagons.
This course Is hardly In good faith with
the council and men who dug up the
money. We feel we did right in endeavor
ing to keep the police on duty, but we
should not be put In the light of making
these efforts to buy new wagons, particu
larly when many policemen and the city
Councilman Huntington does not show
any sympathy with statements that the
present wagons are falling to pieces and
must be replaced at once. He thinks next
year will be time enough to buy the new
equipment, and if any money is left over
in the police fund it should be put back
where it belongs.
The matter has stirred up a brisk con
troversy at the city hall and the outcome
Is not In sight. Whether the city officers
have any further control over the money
transferred Is a question that a number of
persons would like answered. The comp
troller holds they have.
Another obstacle has presented itself In
the way of he Board of Fire and Police
Commissioners spending $1,500 or so for
new patrol wagons out of the money trans
ferred to the police fund to keep tip tho
force to the end of the year. Thl barrier
Is none other than John T. Cathera, who
has Informed the comptroller he will not
stand for the expenditure. Cathera wa
at the city hall Wednesday morning.

Omaha Land company for right-of-way for
the cut-off which Is to be built from Ox

It Is said practically all the right-of-way
has been acquired west to the city limits.
The company Is now dealing with the farm

a large number of laborers. The ten mile

of the Burlington freight depot have been
notified to move to make room for addi
tional trackage which is required. This
also gives rise to the rumor that the
freight depot might be enlarged. For ome
time there has been considerable complaint
concerning the facilities furnished by th
Burlington for the handling of freight, both
ingoing and outgoing. ' These complaint
were stopped a few weeks ago by the

The member of the Board of County
Commissioner will visit the county hos
pital in a body Friday morning. The spe
cial purpose of the visit Is to decide on
what steps can or may be taken to give
better quarters to the consumptive patient
at the hospital. The -commissioners realize
that when persons apply to the county for
admission to the hospital at the poor farm
they are generally so far advanced In the
disease that permanent relief cannot be
afforded. Still, the commissioners are will
ing' to make any arrangement possible to
give the medical fraternity an opportunity
to put into effect the newest and best de
velopments along the line of curtailing or
stamping out the white Prague.
A committee of the Omaha Medical so
ciety has made a proposition to the board
for the erection of tents, not only for the
county charge afflicted with tuberculosis,
but also for people similarly afflicted who
may be able to pay. In the latter case the
patient would erect their own tents and
pay for their own diet kitchen, the tents
and kitchen to be erected on a part of the
county farm set aside for the purpose.

the matter up with the two appropriation
