this state. 'They have the money and the
brains behind them to' successfully fight

have succeeded up to our city limits, pos
sessing franchises In many towna. are In
position to connect with many others and
own a franchise even In South Omah
Under our very nose. '
Mot st Speculation.
"The franchise they are asking for Is
not wanted to sell, but because they need
It In th extension of their business. Mr.
Helot nd Mr. O. J. Snyder, who Is as- i
seriated with him In Kansas City, have
a plant there not surpassed by any other
In the . cpuntry and exchanges In many
neighboring' cities. Entrance and estab
lishment; in prhabs, are necessary to round
out the system and make It complete. If
you will' grant them the privilege they
will build here a telephone system of tha
highest, best and most modern type and
they wiU do It Just as soon as men can
build ltl ' 1
"We agree to deposit a $25,000 cash
bond to be. forfaited If, the plant Is not
bum and tha terms of the ordinance com-
v plled'wlth. As opposed to the applica
tions, of two other Interests I would call
,your attention to the fact that Mr. Par
mele' and Mr. .Pollock own a franchise
In South Omaha and when the home com
pany promises Interchange of business
,'wlh that city It Is offering something It
'dpee not possess ' and may not be able
to obtain. I'wotlld reason that it will r
a difficult' matter for, anyone to obtain
a third franchise In South Omaha and
that is what this company would hava to
do. to give ypu a local service there.
''The Home company has copied our or
dinAnee In' form, but it has not been will
ing to meet bur ' figures on rates. With
11.000 telephones, the fates of the Home
company would mean (132,000 mors an
nually to tha subscribers than our rates.
It 'would require 21.000 instruments In Use
before we could charge the rates offered
by tha' Homo company for lesa than half
aa many. ,.

to tiu fact; that the franchise proposed

City C'onnrll Proceedings.
The denizens of Missouri avenue en
livened the affairs of last night's council
meeting by an outburst of Indignation al
most aa Spontaneous aa the Fourth of July
explosives. The cause was the long-standing,
miserable condition of the street, which
has been greatly Increased of late by heavy
rains. There are now many places of posl
tlve danger. These conditions were pre
sented to the council by Judge J. J. Breen,
who charged the council with murder,
should a fatal accident occur on the ave
nue. The judge -spent several minutes In
describing the conditions and stated that
although the council had permitted repairs
to other streets in the city, Missouri ave
nue had been untouched. At the close of
his remarks the mayor took exception to
soma of his pointed remarks and stated
that It waa not lack of willingness on the
part of the council, but the lack of funds
which had caused the delay. He promised,
however, that the more dangerous places
should be made passable, or at least be
fenced up so that they could not become
a source of danger.
In the regular course of business the
council confined Itself to routine. Among
the communications II. M. Hodge reported
thst his horse had fallen Into a hole be-
ween Twenty-fourth and Twenty-fifth on
F street. Just after a heavy rain and in get
ting the animal out he had ruined a good
harness. He wanted $25 damage for the
same. The city attorney reported adversely
to the claim of John Coatsworth, who re
ceived Injuries at Thirteenth and Missouri
avenue by a fall Into an excavation under a
sidewalk, caused by a washout. Coats-
worth wants $30,000 damage.
Report of Inspectors.
Reports from tho live stock Inspector
showed that he Jiad condemned eleven cat
tle, twelve hogs, eight sheep and seven
horses during the month of June. The
sanitary Inspector reported four cases of

being to allow warrants to be drawn on
theje funds to pay for tho engineering

porary sidewalks was also passed.
Hewer Plans Ready-
The city engineer reported that he had
perfected plana for the new aewer so far
that bids could be advertised for In the
near future. He suggested that July $0
would be the probable date of the opening
of the bida. They might have been opened
sooner except for the fact that several
other cities are advertising for like systems
and he did not care to place the opening
at a time which would prevent aome of the
big contractors from considering the bids.
3. R. Kaston was present, representing
Spitser A Co., and It was expected that
some proposition would be forthcoming re
garding the bond tsaue. He has presented
a proposition, but the council declined to
