Have you noticed that the World-Herald and the other Heim advocates do not say one word about
P the value of the franchise you are asked to give away?
Also, that they do not even mention the mandatory direction to go into the
market and sell this franchise as soon as it is granted.

If the voters of Omaha are to give away two franchises worth half a million dol
lars why not give it to Omaha 'people? Why should you give it to Mr. Heim, the rich
If the so-called "independent" franchises for conduit system as well as a telephone system will
be a good thing for Mr. Heim, the millionaire Missouri Brewer, why wouldn't it be a much bet
ter thing for Omaha if this double franchises were given to Omaha men?
Local capitalists asked for these franchises, but the Council refused to gjve the voters a chance to
confer them on Omaha people. Why? Is it because Mr. Heim is already a very rich man?

Wllh regard to a published statement
that a complaint was about to be lodged
before the South Omaha Mould of Fire and
Police Commissioners against Chief Itrlggs
by George Braoeeu, the chief made an
emphatic denial that he ever called on
Bradeen to advance any money to pay the
expense of a trip to Sioux City. He also
staled that he had never authorized Hls
felder to ask such a sum from Bradeen or
any one else. J la did give Klsfelder 15 out

pense of the trip until he might be reim

asserts, he paid the money to Klsfelder,

concerned in the matter at all.

BOOSTER FOR THE STORK

tleal Steps to Make Home
It appear that the two storks recently
received in Washington from Hamburg.
Gern'any, which were supposed to be in
tended for the While House, are simply
being acclimated at the national capital,
and will soon be sent to Alton,- III.
Mayor Beall of the latter city is the im
porter of the birds. Two pairs of storks
which were previously ordered by him died
before reaching Alton because they were
subjected too suddenly to the Influence of
the prairie atmosphere. After being de
tained for a time In the District of Colum

Imported can be removed to their we-ii-m
home with safety.
These facts are brought to the atieiiii.m

serve to illustrate the systematic, the al
most scientific, manner in which Mayor
Beall of Alton proceeds ia dealing whl

expects that the arrival of the atorks wilt
give the movement a fresh Impetus. He
has sold sll his chickens and Is trans
forming his chicken coops Into a pleasant

contemplation of the beautiful birds by
young married couples, or by young couples
about to marry, or even by couples who
hnve been married for some time and who
are not at present eligible to the Beall flats,
he believes, wll do a great deal of good.
