OMAHA. July 10 To the Editor of
The Bee: There has been considerable
controversy of late, brought about by tha
enormous gas tsnk which the gas mm
pah.' Intend to erect si the turner of
Twentieth tnd Center streets. A word
from the property holders in the vicinity
may not be smls.: These property hold
ers were here fur jesrs before the tanks
and factory were erected snd would never
have permitted the erection of the same
had they re.iltred what sort of menace to
life and health and property such a
plant Is. .We object to thie tanks prin
cipally for the following reasons:
First They constitute a 'menace to life
and health.
Second They cause a depredation of
the value of our property.
Third They are a general nuisance.
That such gas plant and as holders
are a mefince 16 life and h'-slth Is arhply
attested by the fact thst such tsnks have
frequently exploded before In New York,
in Chicago and In other places, where con
siderable loss of life- and property oc
curred; also, here In Omaha, where sev
eial such explosions have taken place.
Once' In particular. January 19. 104, one
of Hie tanks exploded, bursting a. large
hole In Its sldf from Which Issued such
volumes of gas that the gas company Im
mediately ordered the people in the vicin
ity' to" put out their fires and lcaye their
homes without offering them any shelter
or sssistanco whatever, not even aiding
In any way a lady .In delicate circum
stances, whom ' they ordered from her
home, simply leaving all to the tender
mercies of the mid-winter breezes and the
snow-dad streets. These explosions can
and will occur again. What If a fire
should take place In a house now standing
not twenty feet from one of tanks?
What If one of them should be struck
by lightning? Only lately an automobile
exploded on West Farnam street and
pieces were hurled for three blocks and
windows broken one block away. - What If
a gas holder, 130 feet In diameter and
fifty fect higher than the New York Life
building, should explode? A school at
tended by over 400 pupils stands within
the 1,000 feet radius of the gas holder:,
also a church, often visited by over 1,000
people at one time. What If such an
explosion should occur during church
services or school hours? The panic alone,
which would almost surely result, might
cost many lives.
The gas tanks depreciate our property.
Real estate men refuse to make loans on
our property for the sole reason of its
nearness to the gas plant. The rents of
our houses have decreased; Insurance
rates have been raised.
The icas company sarys It ha Invested
many thousands ot dollars. Have the
homes of all of us no value? Have ur
live no value. Is our good health of no
value? .
These tanks must not necessarily be here;
they need not be within the city limits
anywhere;-only th- gas ompany does not
wish to be put to the expense of moving
Its plant or of building a new tank else
where, becwus'e It Considers Its dollars of
greater Value than the' lives snd health
and property ot the residents of the vi
cinity. -
The 'tanks are a nuisance. Lt any
one who wishes to Inform himself on this
question pay a visit to the corner of Twen
tieth and Center streets and smell the ever
present odor of gas which, can frequently
be :smeUed Tor several blocks around; let
him see the clouds of smoke and the sheets
of "flame which' Issue every few. minutes
day and ilght7rom the works; let him hear
the -thundeT which reverberates as often
through the air, loud enough to make the
uninitiated look about for an Approaching
storm; let him live here a. while In constant
dread of .an ever likely explosion which
may sweep himself and all he loves and
own Into eternity then he will appreciate
why It Is that we are fighting the erection
of more gas holders, and why we want the
whole works removed ' outside the city
limits. Then he will see why It Is that
the gas company has been driven from
or haa been prohibited from, locating In
other locations throughout the city.
Every one expects thst South Omaha will
soon be part of our. city; In that event the
gas works in the very heart of our
metropolis; certainly no ornament, but a
disfigurement calculated to make life and
property unsafe for blocks around. The
water works plant Is" located' at Florence
and pumps water all through the city.
Now, water requires much power to be
moved over 'a great distance; gas travels
anywhere In the direction of . least re
sistance, and therefore could be distrib
uted as cheaply .from outside the city
limits as from the present location.
The above facts were very well presented,
and the legality of the city ordinance now
In force prohibiting the erection of a new
gas holder without the consent of the
propertyholders within a radius of 1,000 feet
most ably defended by the city legal de
partment against the gas company recently.
Although Mr. Pritchett, for the gas com
pany, argued that any one who could not
see how unreasonable and absurd the pres
ent ordinance Is, must have no more brains
than a monkey, nevertheless Judge Day
decided in all Justice against him. Where
upon the gas company la again "trying to
overthrow the ordinance upon a techni
cality. This1 rnstter concerns not only the people
near .the present gas plant, but' every
cltlsen of Omaha. For, if the present or
dinance falls the gas company, has a tight
to erect a holder or plant anywhere In the
city. . For this reason all Improvement
clubs ars supporting our cause, and we are
surs of victory. (Signed)

All order of business were side-tracked
at lat night a council meeting that the
council might take up tha bids m the j
sewer system. A fair crowd was in the
hall. Among the contractors there were
many firms represented. It was found,
however, that only four firms had offered
bids and not all these had hid on all
branches of the system. The firms were
Dan Hannon, George I'arka, James Jensen
snd the Denver Building and Construction
company. As a rule the bidding was high
and In nearly every case too high to be
considered, as they overreached the engi
neer's estimates. The bid of the Denver
company was. howver, within the estimates
all the way through and covered every
branch of the- sewer except the north
branch of the N street gulch sewer. The
bid of this company therefore injures the
construction of the sewer, which Is a source
of great relief to the city engineer.
After the adjournment E. M. Rohrbough
expressed himself In effect as follows; ."I
am satisfied that there ran be but one bid
considered for the reason thnt It 4 the
only one whlrh lies within the estimates.
That Is the bid of the Denver company.
Their hid Is very good. Where they got
their data for the hid I do not know. They
have never visited the office to my knowl
edge." On one section of the Mud creek sewer
George Parks had the lowest bid. hut his
bid on the rest of the sewer was high. The
engineer Is of the opinion that on hla esti
mates there Is a margin of at lesst 110.000
to guarantee a contractor. Some of the
contractors thought thl too smalt for the
chance taken.
I'pon the reading of the bids the mayor
refen-ed them to the committee on viaducts,
streets and alleys for tabulation. They
will be reported on at the next meeting
of the council.
Bids on Sidewalks.
Aside from the bids on the sewer there
were bids opened for the construction of
permanent sidewalk of brick. Gus Hamel
and P. J. O'Connor were found to be the
low htdders. O'Connor's bid was from 1
cent to half a cent lower. These bids were
also referred to committees for sction. Tho
bid of Dan Hannon on S street grading
from Eighteenth to Twenty-fifth was also
received without competition.
After this a communication from Spltxer
ft Co., stating that the Fourth National
bank of New Tork had refused to become
a repository for the . $160,(VlO In municipal
securities which was to have been de
posited with them as additional security
Insuring the faithful performance of the
contract of Spltxer Co. with the City- of
South Omaha. The company therefore
asked that the Mercantile National bank
be named, which bank would be- willing
to transact the business renulred of the
Fourth National. This by resolution the
council agreed to do. Adjournment wn
then taken until Wednesday evening,
when the committees will be ready to
make their reports.

It romrs as good news, especially to those
members of the press who have covered a
biennial, that there Is movement on foot
among some of the prominent women of the
General Federation of Women's Clubs to
aliollsh the foolish and unnecessary secrecy
that has In the past been maintained re
garding the result of the sitting of the
nominating committee previous to the bi
ennial election of officers. At several of
the biennials this result has been re
garded with a diligence that exceeded pre
caution to the extent of flagrant discour
tesy to press correspondents and for no
better reason than a tradition that the
result should be withheld from the press
until announced to the convention. The
useleesnesa of such secrecy has long been
evident to many of the women and they
have protested sgnlnst the members of th
committee pledging themselves In this way.
This was the case at the St. Paul meeting
last June. . -
Mrs. Walter Stokes Irons of Rhode
Island, chairman of the nominating com
mittee, urged the members not to vote for
secrecy, but she was disregarded and In
consequence, as haa always been the case,
while the press had the report of the com
mittee next morning, It had to secure It
at the expense of broken pledges on the
part or members,' Mrs. Irons, with others
who realise the Injustice of this old plan
to the committee members a well as to
the press. Is agitating the adoption of a
new rule at the next biennial and they
have received the hearty co-operation of
officers of a number of states that promises
betteT things In future.
The child labor law prohibiting the em
ployment In sny manufacturing establish
ment of the state of Georgia of any chl'd
under 12 years or of any child under 14
at night seems almost assnredM as the
upper house of the Georgia legislature con
firmed without a dissenting vote. July 30,
this measure, which passed the lower
house July IS by a vote of 125 to 2. Pub
lic sentiment Is so generally In fnvor of
the law that there Is little danger of Its
veto by the governor unless some flaw can
be found In It, which Is scarcely probable.
Tbe law will not become operative until
January 1, 1908. The repeated failure of the
club women to secure such legislation In
the past had almost discouraged them, and
It had been practically decided It this
year's effort failed to Work from another
side next time and urge compulsory edu
cation law. It Is probable that they will
do this anyhow, as the new law only ac
complishes part of the much-needed legis
lation for tho protection of the children
now and ne future cltlxens. The legisla
tive work of women in the south has en
countered bitter opposition not only from
those whose financial. Interests were at
stake, but from those conservative ones
who. resent the extension of women's In
terests. Miss Charlotte Templeton, secretary of
the State Traveling Library Commission,
was In Omaha recently and is enthusiastic
over her new work, she having succeeded
Miss Edna Bullock last spring. Miss Tem
pleton. Is working tip several plans tha?
will strengthen the library work of the
state and that should shd will receive the
hearty co-operation of club women. SIfe Is
greatly tn sympathy .with the efforts of
the club women and anxious to work with
them. . '

llowance at Omaha as at Kansas City and
he elimination of the Kansas City-Mem
phis rate. The announcement of the Rock
Island that it would abrogate the payment
of elevation allowances at Kansaa City
does not meet either one of these demands,
says Secretary McVann of the Grain ex
change, and even If It did the boycott would
till be on until the other point was yielded
That the RocV Island has not msde even
a semblance of peace with the commercial
interests of Omaha Is made clear In this
statement made by Secretary McVann Mon
It is extremely unfortunate that, the ae
Hon Of the Rock Island road depriving the
Kansas City dealers of the elevation allow
nee of 1M cents should have been heralded
as a victory for the Omaha commercial In
terests. (
In the first place, Omaha never asked
that Kansas City be deprived of this ad-
antage, but only that It should be. given
to Omsha, which Is an entirely different
In th second plsce, the real controversy
between Omaha and the Rock Island sys
tem has been chiefly over the Kansas Clty-
Memphle 'equalisation' plan, which was un
der discussion t the time th elevation al
lowance discrimination wa sprung. W
had notified the Rock Island people In plain
language that we would not stand for the
Memphis 'equalisation' plan, and that If
Vice President Blddle persisted In putting
It In effect It would make trouble for the
Rock Island rosd in Omaha, because we
could not be on friendly relations with one
member of a family, another member of
which was breaking into our back yard and
stealing our grain.
Attltnd Is Not Changed.
We want every business msn In Omaha
to know that the position of the Commer
cial club and the Grain exchange toward
the Rock Island system haa not been
changed one whit by reason of the can
cellation of the Kansas City elevation al
lowance. As a matter of fact, when Mr.
Gower, freight traffic manager of the Rock
Island road. - was here he and Mr. Utt,
their geneial agent, called on me and made
a tentative proposition for settlement of
our difference with that road, based on
the elimination of the elevation discrim
ination. . I absolutely declined to conaldor
any proposition from them which would
not Include the cancellation of the Kansas
Clty-Memphls 'equalisation' tariff.
'I did not consider It worth while to
give out any particulars regarding my
conference with ' Mr. Gower, except that
It failed of results, but th Rock Island
people knew well that they could not set
tle their differences with Omaha by can
celling the Kansas City elevation allow
ance or even by giving It to us without
also adjusting the Memphis situation.
"I have this morning a long letter from
Mr. W. B. Blddle, who Is vie president,
In charge of traffic of both the Rock
Island and 'Frisco system, in which he
uttempt to defend the position of the
'Frisco system with regard to th Memphis
'equalisation.' I will reply to this letter
todsy and In my reply I will make It very
clear to Mr. Blddle that the Kansas Clty-
Memphls 'equalisation' basis must be can
celled before the difference between the
Rock Island road and the commercial In
terests of Omsha can be adjusted.

bungling Job their representative at Greeley
made of th thing. That it wa a part ot
th general house cteaning proces engaged
In by railroads generally as a result of th
popular movement and legislation against
a continuation of th rebate system la hot
denied. The officials simply say nothing,
assuming an air of mysterious Ignorano of
th whole matter, lit which, of course,
they arc thorqughly veraed, but of which
they dare not spesk.
