Whetea. The remarkable (roth and the
fraternal activity of thla order entltlea It to
the consider tlon and repe-t of all bellav
era in liberty, truth. Justice and equality;
Now, ttieiefore, I. Thomas Hoctor, mayor
of Booth Omaha, do hereby deais;iiate Mon
day. June '. as Kaalea' day -It will be ap
propriate that on that day our citizena dec
orate their home and places of buRlnesa In
the color of the order, red, white and blue.
In honor tif our coasts, and make their wel
come to our city In keepin; with ttie broth
erly aplrit and purpose of the organisation.
The second proclamation, regarding the
observance of the Fourtn of July a the
day of independence, la more In the nature
of an executive command concerning the
uae of fireworks, and as such Is timely. It
Is as follows:
Whereas, July 4 has ieen net aside a a
leeal holiday in commemoration of the In
dependence of these I'nltad Statea; and,
Whereae,. It la not only appropriate but
commendable that our cltlrena obaerv that
day In a aplrlt of patriotism; and.
Whereas. It is customary and in harmony
with the occasion to celebrate this anni
versary by the use of fireworks;
Now. therefore. I. Thomas Hoctor. mayor
of the city of SouJJi Omaha, hereby pro
claim and declare said 4th of July a legal
holiday and call upon our cltlr.ena in ob
serving the apirlt of this occasion to refrain
rrom the use of fireworks within the city
limits, on the streets and alley of this
city, before the 4th day of July, and to re
frain at all times from discharging In or
upon any street or alley In this city any
tlrecracker known and designated as ayna-
mlte or giant erackera. and no cannon
cracker exceeding four Inches in length.
Water Company Proteata.
The Board of Review spent all of yes
terday forenoon discussing the valuation
of the properly of the wster company.
This company I making a strenuoua effort
to have lta valuation rut down to S33,000.
Its representative made the declaration
that the company had been losing millions
of dollars In Omaha snd South Omaha
tindr the present operatlona. They aaid
with regard to the assessment of laat
year that they were prevented from mak
ing a fight then for the reason that they
were engaged in a controveray in Omaha
which took all of their attention. The
board did not agree tn reduce the assess
ment, and if the w-ishe of W. H. Queenan
are carried out they will not be lowered.
None of . the packer were before the
board yesterdny. Tt la believed that they
will not aerlously object to the raise.
At the clerk' office yesterday th at
tention of the mayor waa directed to the
manner provided by the charter which the
tax commissioner should follow In placing
the assessment on the street railway. ,It
wa Intimated by the clerk and deputy
that if this charter provision were strictly
adhered to the assessment of the company
would be above $1 .ono.ox). It was apparent
that the street railway waa entirely sat
isfied with the assessment of 4SO.O0O on Its
New Tarn la Bond Deal,
Another turn of affair has apparently
unsettled again the program of tho city
council regarding the Issue nf sewer bonds.
The last published arrangement was that
Spitzer A Co. were to become a, depository
of the South Omaha funds and that the
whole issue was to be taken up at once
with the payment of the much mooted Item
of accrued Interest. The first intimation
which came to the clerk's office, which had
been carrying out It end of the program
In accordance with the instruction of the
council, came yesterday afternoon when
the mayor voiced the remark: "I'm afraid
we made a mistake." Further than this
he aald nothing except that the matter
would come before the council Monday
night. He said: "I was opposed to the
whole business, but s Unwed myself to be
convinced that it was all right, and If It
were done as proposed I believe we would
actually save the city over $1,000. Put If
It should ,turn out differently and tliere
were a legal fault we would never hear
the last of the matter."
C. A. Melcher also declared that there
wa a hitch in the procedure, but a-ild he
had promised the mayor not to revoul its
natur bsfore It could be laid before the
council. The reading of the charter ap
parently does not exclude the treasurer
from making Spitser A Co. a depoaitoiy.
but the treasurer said tliere were ofton
buslnesa considerations outside of technical
legality to h considered.

or falling to upply all patrons. Should
there he a run of very hot weather, how
ever, they fear that the supply will not

prices again and Incur further public odium
and abuse some of them eay they would
prefer to let their stock run out at the
present figure and have the whole business
ended. In this contingency they flgurs, too,
on the possibility of a new Ice company
capturing large amounts of the business
next year, because of a feeling on the
part of patrons that they hav been the
subject of extortion.
A week ago the companies that control
the local situation and furnish -the bulk of
Ice made a flat residence coupon book rale
of 50 cents per )0 pounds. T'p to that time
35 cent had been charged for 100-pound de-
liverie. 40 cents for fifty-pound consign

By making the 50-cent flat rale, the dealer

from outside. The local crop last winter,
owing to the mildness of the season, is
