the committee on railways, telegraphs anu
telephones to bring his orulnance for
street railway concessions up for consider

duced In the council separate ordinances
demanding the sale of twenty-five ticke's
for tl and a universal transfer system.
The proposition to require only l-cent fares
from passengers having to stand was
President. Zlmtnan and Hoye fought to
have the ordinances laid over under the
rules so as to prevent them from going
to the committee, but were defeated by
Hack, Comstock. Uyball, Evans. Hunting
ton and Schroeder, receiving the support
only of O'Brien.
Bark endeavored to have Hoye's request
for a reading at length turned down, but
was not sustained by Temporary President
7.1 m man on the Ordinances.
President Zimman made a long speech
In favor of the ordinances. Bald he:
The committee of railways, telegraphs
and telephones has had the original ordi
nance In hand for over four weeks. Two
or three efforts have been made at com
mittee meetings to consider various fes.-
tures of it. but we were Informed by Chair
man Rvans that he wanted more time and
the members desired to get Information
from other cities. To date no Information
from other cities haa been submitted. I
have found a great deal of valuable in
formation along the lines In question in
the municipal Journals received by the
members of the council, and, a these pub
lications are disinterested. I believe, I have
no reason to doubt the trustworthiness of
what ! have found In them. I observe that
a largo number of cities receive royalties
from their street railway companies, rang
ing from J to 9 per cent on gross receipts;
that in many of these cities from five to
eight tickets are sold for a quarter; license
fees are paid for street ears and poles;
paving is required not only between the
rails, but from one to two feet outside
at the expense of the traction companies.
In Omaha we-recelve nothing for the fran
chises and have none of these things."
Back Blames the Charter.
It Is not our fault that the street rail
way does not pave outside the rails." said
Councilman Back. 'That Is fixed by the
City councils In other cities have un
dertaken to do what we are trying and
have succeeded," said Zlmman. "There Is
no question about the power of the city
council to regulate In the matter of eer?
vice and rates. That haa been upheld time
and again by the courts of various states.
In some of these cities I have In . mind

President Zlmman If the chairman will
promise to take the ordinance ur at the
committee meeting next week I have no
objection to Its being referred to his com
mittee. But I want to read some of the
figures I have at hand from a number of
Councilman Huntington Why not refer
that to the committee?
President Zlmman We have had the In
formation sometime and the committee has
not exhibited any desire to have it. It
has been open to all the members of the
council all along.
Zlmman then read an account of the
concessions obtaining In Nashville, Hart
ford, Los Angeles, Lancaster, Pa., Mil
waukee. Columbtia, O., Kansas City, De
troit, Indianapolis, Montreal, ' Cleveland,
Minneapolis and other cities.

concession was barred to children over
twelve yaars of ago, but Evans said th
age limit was fifteen years. He asked if
Zlmman thought by reducing fares It would
tend to lighten the paving burden of th
people by making the street cur people
more willing to shoulder it.
"It would enable a large saving to the
workingmen of th city." said Zlmman.
"It would result la benefit to their child

Old Ordlassv, Explained.
City Isaiglnuer Ruxewater, called upon by
Bach to define tho charter requirements re
garding the paving outside of the street
car tails, remarked that he had discovered
an old ordinance providing for a graduated
scale ot prices for repairs made by the
city to paving damaged by the traction
company. This ordinance, he said, ar
ranged that after paving had been down
ten years nothing could be collected, and
this affected practically all streets in a
square mile in th heart of the city. He
explained that the charter required th
property owners to pay for all paving out
side the rails and street intersections.
"The ordinance Mr. Rose water speaks of
never was enforced." said Mr. Zlmman.
"As for the charter requirement about
paving outside of th rails; that would
have been amended in the l"si charter,
but Vice President Wattles, i.f the street
railway company, telegraphed to several of
the members of the Douglas county dele,
