COUNCIL IGNORES CHARTER
Vacates Streets, Although City Law
Doei Not Warrant It.
LEGAL 0. K. IS WITHHELD
Barnam Fraakly days Mis Demo
cratic Partisans Have Ignored
the Charter Despite Ills Ad
vice t atop.
Despite repested opinions and warnings
from the city legal dpHrtment. the demo
cratic city council has persisted In going
contrsry to the city charter and has
vacated street sfter street.
City Attorney Rurnant and his two as
sistants have always refused to draw up
ordinances vacating streets, and each time
the question has come up they have told
the courjcllmen that they were going con
trary to law and that they had no right
to close a street. The democrats reftised
to heed this advice, however, and have
drawn tip their own ordinances, passed
them, sent them to the mayor for ap
proval and they have all by him been ap
proved. Tha new city charter, which was sp
proved and became effective April 3. 1D0S,
does not irlve to the council or any branch
of the city government the right to close
a street. Mayor Dahlman, Thomas Mc
Govern and the other ten democratic coun
cllinen went Into office on May 21. 190,
after the new charter went Into effect.
Since that time they have vacated ten
streets in the city of Omaha.
As chairman of the committee oru street
Improvements, Thomas McOoverh, council
man from the Ninth ward and the man who
was scared into action a few day ago by
the grand 1ury camping on t.la trail, has
taken the lead In the vacation of streets.
These vacatlona have Invariably been ap
proved by the whole committee, consisting
of Mr. McGovern, Peter Elsasser snd Lee
Bridges. Recommended by the committee,
the democratic council has approved the
vacation and no vetoes have been handed
down by his excellency, Mayor James
Charles Dahlman, "Bryan's closest per
sonal and political friend." ,
BtEm at the First.
Beginning their arbitrary practices soon
after taking their seats and being sworn
to uphold the laws, these democrats have
continued in violating the charter and va
cated a street as late as August
17 of this year. This is Fifth
street, between Pierce street and
Poppleton avenue. June 19 of this
year they vacated another street, Ninth
street, north of Castellar street.
Three streets were vacated by the demo
crats to accommodate the Her Tile works,
all of them In tha summer and fall of
1908, the first year they were In office.
Part of Pine atreet, between Third and
Fourth streets, was vacated August 31, 106,
ard on September 21 following the rest of
the street In this block was vacated.
Fourth street, between Pine and Paclflo
streets, was vacated September 13, 1906, and
September 22, 1906, Third atreet at Pine
was vacated. All of these streets were va
cated in favor of the Her. Tile worka and
are occupied by that firm without the
payment of any rent.
Among other streets vacated by the
democrats since the new charter became
effective are the following: Twelfth street.
between Marcy and Mason streets, vacated
October 26, 1906; Maple street, between
Twenty-seventh and Twenty-eighth streets,

In a letter Just received by one of the.
civilian employes at army headquarteia
from Cuba, where the recipient of the let
ter was stationed for a year or more, the
writer of the letter takes emphatic ex
ception to reports sent out by Interested
parties regarding any rerious disturbances
during the late elections on that Island.
He contradicts the story and attributes
Its origin to luterested parties. "The dis
turbances were wholly local and Insignifi
cant." the letter states, "and had the same
character of disturbances occurred In New
Tork or any other city no notice would have
been taken of them. It Is also a mistake
to assume that any considerable number of
Cubans are anxious for annexation to the
United States, now or at any other time."

The fight over the administrator Is only
a part of the legal battle that will Involve
tho estate, however, for it is also announced
James H. Hill, Lew Hill's brother, and the
three children of Mary Wilson, his sister,
are preparing to make a fight on that part
of the will which provides that the estate
shall not be divided for five years.
County Judge Leslie in appointing John
W. Hill, jr., as administrator held that he
was following the testator's wishes. Mr.
Hill had been practically manager of the
estate for a number of years and was
named as trustee for five years in the will.
The heirs representing two-thirds of the
estate objected and asked that John W.
Daughejty or somo other competent per
son be appointed. They objected to Hill
on the grounds that he owes the estate
J50.000 and if he waa both trustee and ad
ministrator he would report as adminis
trator to himself as trustee. Judge Leslie,
however, held the question of his indebted
ness to the estate could bo settled easily
without prejudicing the estate.
James II. Hill, the brother, is over 70
years old and if he dies before the five'
years his heirs would lose their share in
the estate In case he does not acquire title
to his share before his death.
