Attorney J. P. Breen Saturday afternoon
.will hare ready for delivery to Representa
tive Mlko Lee n draft of the Omater Omaha
bill to bo Introduced In th legislature.
Accompanying this bill will be several
amendment and change on th city char,
ter, theao auggestlon being what are
thought necessary for Omaha regardlei
of any consolidation proposition.
J Tba charter change have to do mainly
' with th funds, there being a provision
th that th city council and mayor shall hav
power to Increase th total fund to tl.2oO,-
W la pine of U.uuo.vMt an cow LL case,
thus making th charter of sufficient elas- I
tlclty to meet any contingency in the event
of consolidation before th next legislature
Th Real Estate exchange and Commer
cial club hav been .active In figuring out
th present needs In th way of increased
appropriations for fire, police, .park and
engineering department of Omaha. Th
proposed plan Is to hav n charter provision
taat th maximum amount to b set sslde
for th engineering department shall be
tlSZ.Ouo, which sum shall cover not only the
engineering department as It 1 now ope
rated, but include all present operations of
th street commissioner' office, making the
two department virtually one. Fund used
by the two . department during ISO
amounted to 1170,40, and apportionment
set asida for this year for th same depart
ment aggregate SltS.SoO, th difference In
those sum being due to Mayor Dahlman'
cut of IS0.0U0. Th proposed $191,000 total
for th two department is about 3,0u0
more than wan allowed In lKM.
Division at Fnnd.
Just how th 1182.000 should be divided
among the various department of th en
gineer office la n matter which la left for
th council to decide on Just as they have
beta apportioning tba general tuaA of
UtSS.OOO through the ; various department.
It la proposed to make the police and fir
funds I1M.0O each, th charter at present
allowing th former 1115.000 and th latter
1176,009. No change ha been suggested In
th lighting fund, which 1 now specified in
th charter at $70,000. Th park fund, ac
cording to th proposed change, should
be raised from $30,000 to a minimum of
$75,000 and maximum of $100,000, although
it 1 believed those figure will be changed
to $60,000 and $75,000, respectively, before
th amendment are offered for coiuadera.
Uon at Lincoln.
No Changs 1 contemplated In th library
fund, which now stands at $22,000.
With th addition mentioned to engi
neering, police, firs and park fund (con
sidering the Inst at $60. OOO). there would be
added to present running expense of the
city $132,000. Th proposition is to add
$150,000, adding th difference of $13,000 to
what la known as the general fund. ' The
charter now authorise the city to raise
by taxation n gross sum of $750.u00 for gen
eral purpose and $20,000 for linking fund.
Th addition mentioned would Increase
th total amount to be raised to $1,150,000,
or $Ai0,ud0 more than Mayor Dahlman ex
pert to run th city on this year.
, Tt Cftatcc Oiuafra Ull, an already
drafted, provide that whenever n city of
th first class shall adjoin th boundary lln
of a metropolitan city for the aggregate
distance of a mile th city of th first class
shall become part of the such metropolitan
city upon the filing with the governor of a
certiiicate by the county surveyor stating
that the boundary lines adjoin In the
manner stipulated. Omaha and South
Omaha boundary lines adjoin for over two
miles. The bill mentioned contemplates
consolidation by legislative enactment in a
manner similar to that which ha been ac
complished in many part of the country,
Kansa City being an Instance.
The bill provide that the governor shall
Issue a proclamation, and if that Is issued
four months or more before th date of
the regular tat and county election
within th year then the city council of
th metropolitan city shall have power and
It shall be Its duty to divide th consoli
dated territory Into twelve wards, and at
the next election, as provided for In the
act, an election shall be held throughout
th consolidated territory.
Should an election be held next Novem
ber under this bill the South Omaha offi
cials would only be cut off of four month

Assistant Attorney General Bar
Psblle Is Intra of that
by Now.
8peclat Assistant Attorney General M. C.
Burch of Washington la In Omaha enroute
to the west on business connected with the
investigation of land matter. Mr. Burch
visited District Attorney Ooss and Special
Assistant District Attorney Rush at the
federal building Friday morning for a brief
"There is no significance In my visit
here," said Mr. Burch. "I merely stopped
over for a short visit and will proceed
west this afternoon. I Just learned of th
acquittal of th Modlsett this morning
while on th train. Mr. Rush nnd Mr.
Ooss hav made an excellent fight, but It
is hardly to b expected that tbey should
win all of them. The trial ha shown on
very Important thing, and that 1 that the
government I in deadly earnest In the
prosecution of alt violation of th land
law, and I venture th observation that
the parties will not take any more
chance to obtain control of publlo lands.
"Ja Uio east lh pubjlo aud ogrporaUraf
are beginning to realize that when th
government get after any violation of th
law that it mean buslnet, and th ten

Closely a possible to the law in every de
partment of Industrial and commercial
Commissioner Hesitate Before l'sur
on Bid of lv Trast ssd
Let th taxpayers of th county drop
thetr load of dull car at the threatening
prospect of being taxed usurlously by th
Ice trust for supplier of the congealed sum
mer comfort to th county Institutions this
summer. Th commissioner hav not yet
let th contract. Th Ice trust wants $6
cent n hundred for Ic delivered to the
court house and county JulL Thl is $7 a
ton. Coal Is almost as cheap and doesn't
melt a fast while the delivery man la car
rying it from th wagon to th nous.
Those who are In n position to know
wink th eye and those who hav observed
th campaign of economy now being con
ductal t th commissioner Siid tag county
auditor, shrewdly guess that the Ice man
ha another bid coming. The trust ad
mitted that in making this bid It was al
lowing for all th vicissitudes of weather
and the chances of a short crop. In other
words, the trust wasn't taking any chance
and was letting th county take them all.
If there should be a small crop of Ice th
trust would still have a fair profit from th
county, and if th Ice crop should prov to
be normal the profit would be very grati
fying indeed to the company.
It is likely the commissioners will hold
up the Ice bids for a month or two until It
1 known what kind of an lc harvest ther
will be.
In th matter of printing, alio, th county
I going to save a wad of money. It Is
said th printer of th city "got together
last year and th county paid about thre
price for it printing. Tills year new spe
cifications were prepared and there Is an
amazing reduction on th price. Lai it year
the plain record cost 115. this year It I
$6 23. The four appearance docket last
year cost $1U, this year the price I $4SL
Tax receipt for back years cost $&2 last
year and the same number this year coat
$j00. Th ao.ono sheet of typewriting paper
