three month. Contractor will confine their
work to the construction which It, already
well under way, Many building which
should have been rompinwi before thli
time have been hampered and delayed both
by 'the ahortag of men and the lack of
material. The demand for men haa been

hard! to get, and often week behind the
orders. The foundation for the city hall
and the Jail are now practically laid and
the. walls of the building proper are going

postofnoe building, has the foundation

South Omaha hospital hopes to occupy the
new building by Christmas, but It may be
later. Bwlfe and Company are progressing
quite rapMly In ths construction of their
new beef house. The casings for the
foundations, walls and pillars are about
finished. Ths task of laying these concrete
casings was a great one. Many of the
excavations for the foundations of the
pillars were from forty-fivs to sixty feet
deep. The reason of the great depth was
to secure firm soil upon whic h to begin the
const ruction. Ths weight of the concrete
walls of the beef house, all stories high
and r re proof, will be enormous. Work
will be continued except In ths moat sever

For Greater Omaha.
SOUTH OMAHA, Deo. 14. To the Editor
of The Bee: My attention has been failed
to a meeting to .discuss the uniting of the
cities of Omaha and South Omaha, and
your report of the same. No reason for
opposition to that union was given, aave
the sentimental one of the mayor of the
smaller city. But on the other hand, there
ate very Important reasons why these two
cities should be united, and why aucb a
union would redound to the advantage of
both. I own property in both cltlea, but my
financial intercuts are mainly in the smaller
of the two, but 1 am sure that a union
would enhance the value of both. Our Lord
said. "What God hath Joined together, let
not man put asunder." God has Joined
hiese cltlea and it la better to recognise
this fact and put our strongest sanction
upon the union. The cities are one In
geographical relations. The division be
tween the two is but an Imaginary Hue,
and no one of us know exactly whan we
pass from one to th other. The difference
le less marked than that between two city
blocks. But what U more, their Interests
are Identical, end that which advances the
good of either, will .also be an advantag
to the other. , Many -of those engaged in
business or employed In one city live In
the other. The interest of these allies are
mutual and reciprocal and this fact should
always be recognised.-
Wnlle South Omaha has some great ad
vantages, yet it Is to be kept in mind that
South Omaha owes Its existence to Omaha. '
But for Omaha, the railways that converge
In that city, and Its consequent advantages
as a commercial center, South Omaha had
never existed save aa a farm. The rela
tione of the latter to the former are those
of i child to Its parent, and It seems like
filial Ingratitude for South Omaha to figure
closely as to a temporary pecuniary ad
vantage, apparent In taxes or expenses. Jt
seems like a son, already enriched by his
father's estate and influence, begrudging
the little the old man eats. We never re
sist the natural relations of two such cities,
that we do not retard) the progress of both.
And we advance th Interests of both when
we do all possible to promote harmonious
relations and reciprocal advantages In the
recognition of the natural and Inevitable
It was my privilege to be a cltlsen of
Chicago, close upon the border of the city
proper, when the union that occurred In
the year l.vs9 waa consummated. The same
arguments that are now presented here
were used with far more ardor there, at
that time. Never In the city has there been
the discussion, privately and publicly that
prevailed at that time. Many predicted
disaster beyond (stlmate It the adjacent
territory were annexed to the city. Laku
View, with a population of about 100,000 at
the north; Cicero, nearly aa large, upon
the west; the Town of Lake, embracing the
stock yards, and Englewood, southwest.
and Hyde Park, with a larger population
upon the south were all Interested In the
proposed absorption. Many of the citizen!)
or moss suourDS were violent In their op
position. But ths union, while promoting
the Interests of Chicago, was of far greiter
relative advantage to the annexed por
Hons. While annexation was secured by
email majorltlfs In the Interested suburbs
not one In ten In either of them would now
vote for a dissolution of the bends con
summated at that time. The great advan
tages of this union are universally recog
nised and admitted. To same waa true
In th annexing of much of the surrounding
tarrttory of New York. The same results
are now apparent. God has united Omaha
and South Omaha and this union should
b Teeognlsed st the faiH-t polbl mo

MUSC AND MUSICIANS.
The Ernest Gamble concert party pre
sented a very good program Saturday to
a falr-slsed audience, which seemed very
appreciative of the work of this trio of
talented and conscientious musicians. Mr.
Lemberson gave for his opening number
"Le Bal Walta," by Rubinstein. His tech
nique Is good and hla manner very pleas
ing, but the rhythm and dash accessary for
this brilliant composition ror the dance
seemed to be utterly lacking. His Dvorak
number, "Humoresque," and "En Courant,"
by Godard, were played In much better
style. His concluding number. List's
"Polonaise No.- I" waa very interesting,
In that it showed more thought as to the
motif of the composition. Mr. Lam
berson's accompar.'mente were vary good.
Miss Verna Leona Page lo a Very sweet,
unassuming little woman, who plays her
violin in good style. Her tones wern a lit
tle off. color a few times, but her work
waa very good In "Henri Vleuxtempa Air
Varie, Opus 22, No. I." Later, on the
program, she gave a trio of very acceptable
numbers & "Cousonetta" of Oodard's, a
delicious little "Abendlled" of Schumann's,
and Bohm's "Moto Perpetuo." Her last
number waa Fabian Rehfeld'a "Spanish
Mr. Gamble, the vocalist of the party,
ha been 111 all day and was really unfit
to be out, but gave his part of the pro
gram In full. He has a beautiful voice,
well trained and well placed. He gave
several well-known numbers In very good
manner. The "Song of Hybrlas the
Cretan" la a rather thankless composition,
but was given very well. The aria, "Honor
and Arms," from "Samson," was the flret
of a trio that was given next by Mr. Gam
ble, In which It waa plainly to be seen that
he was in too poor health to do It Justice.
Much better was Clay's "The Sands of
Dee." Thla little ballad waa by far the
best one of th vocal numbers of the pro
gram. Almost equally as good was Lohr's
"The Little Irish Girl." In these two songs
Mr. Gamble made one feel as though bal
lads were his best selections. Ills last two
numbers, "La Pas d'Armea Du Rol Jean,"
by Saint Saens, and Korby'a "Shepherd,
See Thy Horse's Foaming Mane," closed
a very good program. In the Korbay num.
ber Mr. Gamble did some very dramatic
singing. It Is to be hoped that the next
