Sheriff McAvoy and Chief Brlggs raided
the premises of Alexander Bombs, colored,
living at Eleventh street on the county line.
The raid was made about o'clock last
night. It had been learned by the Sarpy
county sheriff that the women, notably
Irene Combs, had been selling liquor with
out a county license. The officers found
several cases of beer and some other liquor,
which they confiscated and carried to the
Bouth Omaha city Jail. The family claimed
to have a government license, but this was
not satisfactory to the officers. Tho family
is thought to have kept the liquor for sale
on account of the at r let Sunday closing reg
ulations In force In Bouth Omaha.

"You do not find any one wearing- over
coats In Alaska, even In the winter," sa'd
Major F. M. M. Beall of Baltimore, who re
cently returned from that territory.
"The prlnclpiil thing to be careful aboat
Is keeping the head, hands and feet warm.
In that part of Alaska where 1 have been
the only land transportation Is by dog sleds,
and to follow them one hits to drop Into a
dog trot beside the sled.
"in ordinary suit Is plenty thick enough
S keep you warm, and an overcoat Is dan
gerous In that temperature. Trotting along
side a sled wearing an overcoat would
make you perspire, and the bitter cold
would freeze the perspiration.
"The men there wear a fur cap that ci.v
ers every part of the head and face except
the eyes, and there Is only a little peep hole
for them. Wool-llnd mitts are worn on the
hands, and moccasins, with woolen stock
ings, on tho feet."
Major Beall has ,been three years In
Alaska, commanding Fort Oibbon, the gar
rison consisting of twd companies of ihe
Third United States Infantry.
"Fort Gibbon Is 900 miles up the Yuiton
river and seventy-five miles south of tho
Arctic circle," he said, "and the river Is
frczen up most of the year, in that tune
dog sleds are used, but when the river
opens steamers come up frequently. Some
times the rough characters trave.lng
around the country take possesion of a
l iver staamer, and It's part of our work to
restore order and recapture the steamer.
"Tho chief work of the soldiers at Fort
Uibbon Is to keep the telegraph lines go
ing. Since laying the cable from Seattle
the United States government has had
all the mining camps connected by tele
graph, and it is our work to maintain
them. We keep order la the country
nnd protect the people agnlnst stealing
by traveling roughs.
VWhenever we send any of our men out
we always have men experienced in me
ways of the country go along. We are
careful with our men and none of them
get frozen. Another danger that has to
be guarded against is breaking through
tho ice, for the zero weather will freozo
a man quickly when tie has become wet.

these shirt-waist dresses. The tucks of the
waist form two slot-seam effects at each
aide In front and two In the back. The
skirt la a four-piece one, with tucks at
front, back and aides to resemble inverted
plaits. The cut la a practical one, as well
as being up to data In line and outline.
Any of the light-weight worsteds or cloths
may develop the dress, while silk Is always
pretty. For the medium sls t yards of

Omaha, Neb, ,
At an adjourned meeting of the city couts
ell held Saturday night three Omaha public
service corporations were brought Into the
councllmanic spot light. The three In ques
tion were the street car, gas and electric
Councilman Bridges offered an Innocent
looking little resolution which he explained
was a reminder for the Omaha & Council
Bluffs Street Railway company that on De
cember 11 the city council cussed a "uni
versal" transfer ordinance, and that on
January 10 It will be expected that the
street car company carry out the provis
ions of such ordinance. Councllmen Davis
and Brucker thought the resolution was
premature. Inasmuch as January 10 was
some days hence.
As a matter of fact the resolution was
offered for the purpose of getting some
light on an amendment which has been pre
pared to that ordinance after a. consulta
tion by street car company representatives
and the railway committee of the council.
Councilman Zlmman declared that the
street car company can and should carry
out the provisions of the ordinance, and he
objected to such meetings as the one held
during the week at the office of Attorney
John l. Webster, who represented the
street car company. An expression of the
present temper of the council was obtained
by the vote which followed, the vote to
table the resolution being 7 against and 5
for and the vote to adopt the resolution be
ing 8 to 4 In favor of such action. All of
which would suggest the fate of the amend
ment when It Is brought up for considera
tion In the council chamber.
More for Municipal Electric Plant.
Councilman McGovern led the charge
agalnBt the electric light company. Mr. Mc
Oovern Introduced an ordinance to author
ize the mayor to Issue a proclamation for a
special city election November 5, 1S07, to al
low the electors to vote on the matter of
issuing $500,000 In bonds for the establish
ment of a municipal electric light plant. The
bonds are to be of $1,000 each, of twenty
years' life and to draw 4 per cent Interest.
That ordinance was read a first and second
time and referred in the usual manner to
the lighting committee. Mr. McOovern said
he was In dead earnest about the matter
and believed It would be a boon to the citi
zens to vote for such a proposition.
Then Councilman Davis offered a con
current resolution that 2.1 cents per hour
per arc lamp be deducted from the electric
light company s bill against tne cny ror
all "outage" of arc lamps, instead of 2
cents as Is now the case. Mr. Davis said
he had figured It down carefully and nr.
rived at 2.1 cents as 4 correct figure, while
City Electrician Mlchuelsen showed that
2.05 would be the figure, according to his
reckoning. The Davis resolution was unani
mously adopted. During his remarks on
'outage" of arc lamps Mr. Davis said
many arc lamps are out some time before
they aro reported and that some are never
reported at all, In some Instances tne fail
ure being due to lack of patrolmen, who
are required to make reports of arc lamps
Gas Compsnr Conies Kext. .
Councilman Funkhouser's ordinances on
the gas commissioner matter were reaa
first and second times and referred to a
committee. One ordinance provides for the
duties, term of office, manner of appoint
ment and other details of the office of gas
commissioner, while the second goes into
detail as to the quality of gas that must
be furnlBhed In Omaha and how the com
missioner shall proceed to make tests. Both
ordinances have already been explained In
Mr. Funkhouser also had an ordinance
providing . that the city electrician shall
have control of all gas and electric city
lights and of all electric meters In the city.
In addition the electrician shall have under
his supervision meters by which he may
determine what current the city Is receiv
ing under Us contract with the electric
light company. This ordinance was referred
to the lighting committee.
Tho city clTk was directed by resolution
to advertise for bids for apparatus needed
by the gas commissioner for tests of gas
and meters and for the city electrician In
the matter of keeping a check on currents
to the arc lamps.
An ordinance appropriating $3,500 for the
maintenance of a hospital for contagious
diseases was passed on final reading. In
connection with that ordinance a concur
rent resolution was adopted to authorise
the mayor to enter Into a contract with the
Visiting Nurses' association, which organi
sation will have charge of the hospital, the
health commissioner, however, to be In
real authority. T e contract will be for a
year, the city reserving the right to term
inate It at any time.
Contract for City Hall Repairs.
It was resolved that the bid of Ruther
ford & Jenson for the repairs of the city
hall be uccepted and a contract prepared.
Tho consideration Is $2, 18, which was the
lowe.-t of six bids.
