NEBRASKA CITY-The Board of Educa
tion rather took the people by surprise
last evening when the secretary was in
structed to consult with Omaha architects
as to the plans and specifications of a high

of $78,000. The board haa long realised that
there was not sufficient school room and
that some provision had to be made soon,
or turn away pupils. It Is proposed to dis

ing the city purchasing the water plant

hind. Mayor Stelnhart has Just returned
from' the east, where he made an ex
haustive study of water plants, and
gave his figures to the council last
night. The total of his report was that
the plant had never been a paying Institu
tion and that there was a floating debt of
some $18,000 and outstanding bonds to the
amount of over $300,000. His report put a
quietus on those who were so anxious to
purchase the plant.

Waats Mora Mosey,
Dr. Connell's communication states:
I deelre to call your attention to the In
adequate appropriation made for running
the health department. It la utterly Im
possible to maintain anything of a sanitary
condition in the city with the amount of
money appropriated. To show how ridicu
lously small the appropriation that has been
given this department la, compared with
even thirteen years ago, for instance, in
IRifl there waa expended for aanitary in
spection alone $4,iM). The total expended
for sanitary inspection In 1906 was less than
$1,200. So the city spent In 1906 for main
taining the aanitary condition over $6,700
leas than it did thirteen years ago, when
the city was nowhere near the site it
It Is absolutely necessary that you In
vestigate the needs of the health office and
see that there Is a proper appropriation
made for It the coming year. If-1 attempt
to bring the city ud to anvthlna- like a
sanitary condition the funds allotted to me
ror tne year 1W7 will be exhausted by Sep
tember. The total amount appropriated for the
neaun aepanment ror laos waa $9,000, with
$376 added from miscellaneous sources in
the shape of bakers' license mnnev and
money received for disinfecting, etc The
iuuhi amount expenaea in 19US was $9,372.87,
which I aive In an Itemised atatmn l.
where In my report, leaving a balance of
$2.13 in the health department.
The total amount appropriated n the

The amount exDended wri iimjii hih
In an Itemised statement, is riven elsewhere

The weed nuisance la under the health
department and Is very Important In many
ways; they are not only detrimental to
health, but an eye-sore to the Inhabitants,
and show a dilapidated condition of the
town and often are the means of keeping
outside capital from Investing In the city.
Four years previous to 19u the city spent
$2.o0 each year in cutting weeds. In lVKi,
with an expenditure of only $490 by the
city, there were more weeds cut in the
city of Omsha than there had been In the
last five preceding years combined. The
citlsens, as a whole, are enthusiastic over
having this nuisance removed and some ar
rangements must be made -very soon by
your honorable body to abate this nuisance
the coming summer.
I would suggest that you make a news
paper publication a legal notice, instead
of having to serve individual notices, as
this would make a legal notice on owners
of property who live out of town to have
the nuisance abated, aa wall as those resid
ing In the city. If there Is a fund set
aside known as, the weed fund, then all
weeds that were not cut by the time speci
fied, the city could cut and pay the expense
out of the weed fund and tax It up to the
property; as those taxes were paid they
could be put Into the weed -fund and It
would therefore not be necessary to make
an appropriation for this fund more than
