METHODS IN VOoU. IN LARGE CITIES
T Available Mi-thoiti of Disposal
Compared Preference for City
Work, Over Private Con
tract. The finance committee of the city coun
cil of Chicago has under consideration the
collection and disposition of city garbage.
Several bide for a flvc-yrar contract for
the work were received, the price ranging
from IfiOO.ono to l,tMi.0 for the first year
'jt the five with varying reductions for
each of the succeeding four years. To as
sist the committee in reaching a conclusion.
Commissioner Patterson compiled the re
sults of Investigation of methods In vogue
in other cities, and the facts thus gathered
are of great value to all communities. Mr.
"Those who have Interested themselves In
the problem of garbage disposal in Chicago
re agreed on this proposition: The dumps
must go. Dumps poison the air for miles
around; and if ground made by dumping is
dug up years afterwards It Is found still
putrid. Dumping Is a barbarous anachron
ism for a twentieth century city.
"There Is also general agreement that
garbage must be collected dally from all
houses Inthe city. For, while swill under
twenty-four hours' old is comparatively In
offensive and harmless, stain swill which
has been left to decay for two or more days
becomes unpleasant and dangerous to
health. Especially Is this true In hot
Methods of Disposal.
"Shall garbage collected be disposed of
by reduction or Incineration? Reduction
cortHlsts In squeezing the liquid out of the
garbage, skimming the grease from this
liquid, and converting the dry residue into
fertilizer. About 3 per cent of the liquid
can be saved for grease, the remainder run
ning off Into soiiio lan?e body of water.
But this liquid Is erfectlv sanitary and
:omparatlvely odorless because it has been
cooked at a temperature of 313 degrees
Fahrenheit for twelve hours.
"Incineration Is simply burning. The ad
vantage of this method is that such waste
material as paper, wood, etc., is disposed
of at the same time, while under reduction
It requires separate treatment.
"Garbage, however, is difficult to burn,
tince over SO per cent of It is water. So
nuch coal Is used that the process Is ex
pensive while there are no by-products
which being sold can reduce the cost of
eduction. Garbage can probably not be
turned for under 12 a ton, while it can ba
endered for considerably under $1 a ton,
nee the rendering plant Is built.
"Boston. Philadelphia, New York, Baltl
nore, Pittsburg and Cleveland render their
garbage, while- the Instances of success In
economical Incineration are rare and not
"On the whole, therefore, until the case
'or Incineration is better established Sit this
sountry It would seem that Chicago would
lo wiser to try reduction.
"Shall the rendering be done by the mu
ilclpallty or a private corporation? There
ire many trade secrets In the rendering
process of which the city is not yet master,
rbe business la an exceedingly Intricate
one In its present stage of development. I,
therefore, strongly advise that for the
present the rendering be done by private
"But, In the specifications for garbage
disposal Lately drawn up by the finance
committee, It was provided that the col
lection of garbage also be done by private
contract. This. In my judgment, would be
a great mistake.
Wart ot Two Cities Contrasted.
"New York collects its garbage and turns
It over to the rendering concern. Phila
delphia lets out both collection and reduc
tion to a private concern.
"Now, the requisite for success In ren
dering is proper separation. The ewlll
proper (kitchen refuse) must be in a dif
ferent receptacle from the ashes and rub
bish (paper, wood, cloth, cans, etc.)
shes and rubbish ruin the rendering ma
"In New York, try its contract, the oty
contracts to deliver to the rendering firm
a'i per cent pure garbage. The city uses
Its police to compel householders to sep
arate their refuse. Police cause more Im
pression en householders than employes of
a garbage firm. So, as a matter of fact.
New York delivers garbage to the render
ing firm which contains less than t per cent
of foreign matter. Collections are mad. i
1 .. "-"'- '
da ly, with mathematical accuracy. There
, . , . . .
Is never a complaint on this score. Under
th present New York government there Is
no politics In garbage collection nor in
"In Philadelphia, on the other hand,Kbe
cause the machinery of the city govern
ment is not used to enforce separation,
separation is far less perfect Frequently
there is as much as from 30 to 25 per cent
ef foreign material In Philadelphia gar
bage. "The city has tried to enforce dally col
lection In the following way: Whenever a

and the firm puts the li against the driver.
"In the old Philadelphia days this ar
rangement was unquestionably a fruitful
Hi-Id. Fines were imposed when drivers
had not been derelict. They hud no re
course. This method was used to discip
line them when delinquent at the primaries.
One of the high officials and chief stock
holders In the Philadelphia concern In
formed me that shortly after lie hal
moved Into a new house one of his drivers
was fined on complaint of a householder.
Investigation showed that the city's books
showed a complaint of non-collection had
been made by the holder of the house into
which the tendering company official had
moved. Of coursn, the complaint was not
bona fide. The driver probably was be
hind In his dues to the ward club.
"Even the briefest retlectlon must con
vince the experienced that politics might
be played more rigorously under such a
system than would be possible under our
civil service law at its present state of effl
lit) Mast Do the Work.
"There is this further consideration. The
city must either roll- it the garbage itself or
supervise its colli ctlon. if the city is un
able to collect Its garbage properly it is
also tumble to supervise its collection by
'Contractors are In It for the money. They
will, if they do their own collecting, spend
much of their energy in preventing other
collectors from getting the 'richest' gar
bage (that coming from hotels and restaur
ants). This is the case in Philadelphia
and Pittsburg. By the same token they
will, if they conveniently can, omit the
collection of the 'poor' garbage, which
Is not rich in grease. And especially will
they try to evade making too many long
hutils too often, which wear out horse
flesh and eat up wanes fur the amount
of refuse collected. It pays the garbage,
company not to collect from outlying dis
tricts oftener than possible.
"With the city collecting, on Hie other
hand, this motive would not enter. The city
would not be in the business lor protlt, and
would not, therefore, center. Its attention
on the profitable short hauls of 'rich' gar
bage, but would treat all alike.
"Again, if the city lets out garbage col
lection by contract, there will remain for
disposition ashes, rubbish, and street dirt.
Should the city abdicate these municipal
functions also? If not, it must go into the
teaming business for Itself, buy land where
necessary, build stables In various part
Of the city, buy horses, and hire drivers.
"The past system of hiring leaky wagons
and wornout, half dead horses from po
litical favorites at the rate of $4.30 a day
has been a Joke and an expensive one to
the city. It must bo said In fairness, how
ever, that no team owner would sond a
good horse into the dump, where a cut
from a piece of old glass or can will allow
the poison from the decayed swill to enter
the blood of the horse and kill him."

Electioa Officers Deny neglect of

William Telford. Cornelius O'Brien and
Patrick Broderlck appeared before Judge

of not guilty of neglecting their duties as
election officers. At the primary election
hell September 19, these men were con

precinct of the Fifth ward of South
Omaha. After the balloting they did not
make proper returns and it was reported
to the county authorities they had in
dulged too freely in liquot. and had utterly
failed to attend to the business for which
they were appointed.
Telford asserts he became disgusted with
the way In which the voting was being
conducted and quit. The other two make
a general denial. All three were released

The announcement of M. E. Smith
Co. that Mrs. Nash will build for them
a mammoth wholesale dry goods house
and factory on Ninth street, between
Farnam and Douglas, marks the beginning
of the northwird advance of the Omaha
wholesale district. It Is considered only
a matter of a few years until this growth,
gradually attracted to the vicinity of Far
nam and Douglas streets by the opening
of tracks on Ninth street, will encroach
on the red light district of-the Third ward
until its residents are forced to find other
As lung as the fnion and Burlington
stations are at their present locations, It
will be Impossible to build tracks across
Tenth street. Since practically all the
ground available for wholesale purposes
west of Tenth which can be reached by
trackage under the viaduct Is already In
use, it Is only reasonable to suppose that
future growth will be largely to the north
of the Burlington and Union Pacific head
quarters. Then, no doubt, the better
trackage facilities afforded on Ninth street
will cause the removal to that vicinity
of some of the Jobbers already located
M. E. Smith A Co. are the first to enter
the new field. They will build on the west
side of Ninth street, between Farnam
and Douglas, two eight-story buildings,
132x132 feet, one a warehouse and the
other a factory. It will be the largest
wholesale establishment in the city.
Another firm to select a location east
of Tenth street is the Byrne 4 Hammer
company, for which J. A. Crelghton has
broken ground for an eight-story building,
i:xl,12 feet, at the northwest coiner of
Ninth and Douglas streets.
Retail Center Widening; Out.
The most rapid development shown in
the retail district this year has been along
South Sixteenth street. The Hoagland
block, one of the finest retail buildings In
the west, has been erected at Sixteenth
and Howard streets, and is now occupied
by two largo firms. Just across the street
John R. Webster and J. A. Sunderland
arc erecting a retail building which will
cost about 1250,000. Bennett's big store Is
at the southwest corner of Sixteenth and
Harney street and just across the street
east of it is a desirable location for another
large building. When Peter E. Her erects
his $SuO,O00 hotel at Sixteenth and Howard
streets, that section of the town will be
a city of itself.
Building permits already taken out this
year at the city building inspector's offlcb
reach the enormous total of more than
H.000,000, which is greater than for any
single year since 1899. Last year's permits
amounted to $2,061,000.
Of the buildings erected this year, and
of those for which ground has been broken,
eight cost upward of $100,000. These are:
The Brandels Btore, eight stories. Six
teenth, Seventeenth and Douglas, 1750,000.
Hoagland block, six stories, Sixteenth and
Webster & Sunderland building, six
stories, Sixteenth and Howard, 1X9,000.
Byrne & Hammer building, eight stories.
Ninth and Howard. 1200,000.
Y. M. C. A. building. Seventeenth and
Parlin, Orendorff & Martin warehouse,
eight stories. Tenth and Jones, $100,000.
Hayden Bros, store, six stories, Seven
teenth and Douglas, 1100,000.
Allen Bros, warehouse, six stories, Tenth
and Farnam, $100,000.
Beside the M. E. Smith buildings, which
will cost $400,000, there are proposed a Ma
sonic temple at Twentieth and Douglas, to
coet $150,000; a new Her Grand hotel at Six
teenth and Harney, to cost $800,000; a ware- i
house for Paxton & Gallapher at Tenth
and Jones, to cost $100,000, and a Young
Women's Christian association building at
Seventeenth and St. Mary's avenue, to cost
$125,000, to say nothing of numerous smaller
buildings to cost from 120,000 upward to
M.000 or 175.000.
Numerous Elevators Erected,
The year has been one of elevator build-
trig. also. Six elevators have been built or
are now In the course of erection and thev
j represent, together with the cost of the
.sites, an outlay of more than 11,000,000.
1 They are the Independent elevator, with a
I . ,
of 1,000,000 bushels; the Updike
with a capacity of 500,000 bushclB:
the Crowell Grain and Lumber company's
elevator, with a capacity of 150,000 bushels;
the new Mcrrlam & Holmqulst elevator,
with a capacity of 125,000 bushels; the
Trans-Mlsslsbtppl elevator at Council Bluffs,
with a capacity of 500,000; the Coo per-Von
Dorn elevator at Council Bluffs, with a
capacity of 50,000 bushels. The elevator of
the Iowa-Nebraska Grain company at Gib
son, built late last year, has a capacity of
136,000 bushels. The new Merriam & Holm
qulst elevator on Sherman avenue will be
enlarged next summer with storage tanks
for 350,000 bushels.

the advent of cold weather. This has
brought out a few offerings of cheap to
matoes, so that sales have recently been
made at 5c below the high market. In
no section of the west, however, lire Job
bers able to learn of any nfierings below
$1. This, with the freight rate of 2-V to 3iC
would make the goods cost from $1.07' fu
tl.U'Vs, laid in. Jobbers do not look for any
material reduction in tomatoes; in fact,
they are inclined to think that the market
will hold firm and possibly be advanced
Fruits Are Firmly Held.
Anything In the way of canned fruits,
either eastern or California, Is firmly held.
Gallon apples continue to advance and gal
lon small fruits of all kinds are very hard
to find of satisfactory quality.
The market continues very firm on both
apricots and peaches and slight advances
have been made In apples and prunes dur
ing the last week. Peaches are so well
cleaned up, as are also apricots, that an
advancing market Is anticipated frqm this
time on; In fact, some of the best posted
operators predict extreme prices on both
of these lines. There Is no change to re
port In raisins, except that the outsiders
are pretty well sold up, and up to the
present time the Raisin association has not
done a great amount of business.
A few California walnuts have been re
ceived In the market, but the quality has
not been satisfactory. The trade has finally
made up Its mind to use Imported walnuts,
and these are now moving very freely.
Further advances have taken place In
both Japan and head rices. The rainy
wenther in the south has served to give
added strength to the situation, as what
goods are now In the stack will be more
or less damaged by the rain.
The tone of. the herring market In the
etst is a lltdn easier temporarily, but
prices at Omhhi rule the same as last
week. Dutch herring Is pressing the mar
ket, hut supnlles of Scotch are not heavy.
Codfish Is firm under moderate stocks.
Other fish are firm at ruling figures.
Cl caring Sale of Dry Goods.
The trade of dry ijoods Jobbers has been
very good for the last few weeks and the
leading houses have announced clearing
sales for next week, when they will make
a reduction of prices and close out surplus
lots of seasonable fall goods. Many large
retailers have already signified their inten
tion of coniing to the market.
Lonsdale cambrics have advanced to lie
In the Inst week and other bleached cam
brics and all bleached cottons are equally
strong, due In part to large consumption,
as well as to the strong market for raw
cotton. Unbleached cotton denims and
ticks also are scarce and advancing.
! Amoskeag A. C. A. ticks and competing
larger than at any former corresiMindlug
time and extend to all lines or goous.
Shoes nt Omaha's Market.
An advance for tne week Is quoted on
all grades of lenther, both upper and sole.
While Omaha Jobbers have not made any
advances for some time they say the feel
ing in shoes is stronger, and they are cer
tain thet they will have to Increase the
i rlce before long. A retail merchant was
In a few davs ago who protested the hlsh
price charged him for shoes. When the
lobber asked him to compare the present
price of hides with that of former years 1
he said: "Well, I do remember that I I
bought hides a year ago at fie a pound.
I an(j nnw am paying 12 and 18c." Retail
ers are buvtng very freely tor spring, as
thev realire that shoes will he yet higher.
There is always a good business on a rising
market In the shoe trade.
Heavy Trade In Hardware.
Hardware wholesalers are swamped with
shipping. One day last week a salesman
for one company sent in an order for nine
teen carloads of goods, and all others of
the same firm did an enormous business.
Galvanized and black siieetlron were steady
and there is an especially big di maud in
this line. There has been no change in
prices for the week. The steel market Is
steady for the time being, but the Jobbers
say there is eveiy indication that It will be
higher soon. Omaha dealers have bought
ahead for their needs as far as May, In
anticipation of higher prices.
