pany yesterday awning, returning tha
seme to tha council with hi objection.
Theea were that Hugh Murphy had tha
lowest bid, that ha waa a responsible bid

tha last. Tha mayor dcacanted on tha pol
icy of encouraging competition in con
tracts for city improvements to insure tha
work being done for reasonable figures.
Ha asserted he believed that it was illegal
to let the contract aa proposed. In sup
port of' his report on the tests made, he
submitted the figures of Andrew Rose
water, ' the city engineer of Omaha, who
personally conducted the test. This report
showed, the Purington block was the poorer
brick, having lost 17.05 per cent In the tum
bler while th Coffeyvllle brick lost only
14 per cent.
Tha council also had a communication
from the Oood Government league ask
ing that tha contract with the National

Ante Driver "Arrested.
Bedrtck Cramer, an automobile driver,
with J. C. Root in the vehicle, was arrested
In South Omaha last night for exceeding
the speed limit. The machine went south
on Twenty-fourth street psst Chief Brigg's
at a high rste of speed. When the ma
chine returned the chief was Waiting with
a revolver In his hand, and commanded the
driver to atop and submit to arrest. Brtggs
sfterward said he fully intended to shoot
up the machine, if his order had not been
obeyed. His aim would have been at a tire
and thus cripple the machine. It Is under
stood by the patrolmen that this method of
stopping vohicles will be excusable when It
becomes the last resort. The automobiles
from Omaha often come. through ths city
of South Omaha so fast that only good
fortune has prevented many accidents.
After the arrest of theee men the driver
was released on. the recognizance of Mr.
Root. The driver will 'appear at police

TWO DRAINAGE DISTRICTS
Such it Result of Conference of
County Bepresentatiyei.
LAND 0WNXES ASSESSED FOR COST
Dae fossly Men Ofcjert to I. Inking
Their Interests ie. One, o Tot
' Divisions Are to Be
Creeted.
Douglas county commissioners, sfter a
conference at the board rooms Tuesday
morning, with a delegation interested in
drainage, adopted a resolution to form a
district taking In a large section of Doug
las county, and a portion of, Sarpy.
An election of throe directors to have
charge of the work contemplated will be
held at the office of County Clerk Haverly
on. Tuesday. March I. These directors will
give bond in the sum of $3,0f0 each. All
property owners to be assessed for the
ditches will be eligible to participate and
to vote, according to their holdings; for
instance, a man owning a quarter section
will cast 180 votes.
The proposed district will take In all of
the Elkhorn valley In Douglas county, from
the Piatt river to the bluff, and south to
the county line, and all of Sarpy county
east of the river. This meins that, In
stead of one large drainage district, tak
ing in Dodge, Washington, Douglaa and
Sarpy, there will be two districts, with
Douglas and Sarpy pulling together and
Dodge and Washington coupled up. The
Dodge county drainage advocates were
apparently unwilling to link their county
in a general scheme with the others, de
spite the fact that In such an event the
national government would have made the
surveys and had a sort of general super
vision of the work,
Attorney Courtright of Fremont opened
the discussion by an elaborate explanation
of the law, also outlining the feeling of
his home people as indicated above. J. C.
Robinson of Waterloo nnd others were
also heard In advocacy of the scheme as
now agreed on, and the general sentiment
of a large delegation present was shown
to be favorable on a standing vote. One
man owning land In the district protested
because of the Inclusion of a certain tract
of land near the Junction of the Rawhide
with the Elkhorn, but he was nlone in his
protest.

Mink's Sheet Bill.
HASTINGS. Neb.. Jan. SO.-To the Editor
of The Bee: In your' morning issue of
January 29 under the heading, Hotel Man
lias Nightmare" you take another shot at
the Sink bill for sanitary measures regu
lating hotels. The Bee has not treated this
measure with the fairness It deserves. The
bill does not specify nine-foot sheets, but
does specify that the top sheet shall be
three feet longer than tho bottom sheet and
fold back over the top clothes. There have
been many inquiries as to why this provi
sion waa asked for, and here is the reason:
At this time of year the hotels provide an
extra comforter, which the guest usually
finds rolled up on the foot of the bed. L'pon
unrolling It he finds that all four of (ho
edges are rotten filthy. He must either
sleep with this filthy coverlet under his
nose and mouth or sleep cold. Tho long
top sheet folds back over this, thus keeping
the dirty comforter from coming in con
tact with the face.
We have many laws to protect the health
of our people and why this one -should an
tagonize anyone is beyond our ken. Public
sentiment was enough to put long top
sheets on Pullman cars, but it requires a
law to protect the poor devil whose home
from five to seven days a week is the hotel
"catering to commercial trade."
In the Sink hotel measure the 4,000 trav
eling men of Nebraska axe asking for noth
ing beyond the bounds of reason, and in
the asking deserve to be treated with fair
ness and not with ridicule.
H. A. MOSS,
Chairman Legislative Committee Nebraska
Division Travelers' Protective Association.
HASTINGS, Neb., Jan. 80,-To the Editor
of The Bee: In your paper of January 29
you ridicule Mr. John Slnk'a bill. Now this
bill was gotten up by the traveling men of
Nebraska and la not the drummer's dream.
In the first place the bill does not call for
a nine-foot sheet, but calls for the bottom
sheet to be of sufficient length to cover
the mattress, the top sheet to cover the
bed and turn back three fft. Now here Is
where the hotel man gets off: The three
feet extra sheeting covers the bedding so
that the top bedding will last three times
as long and Insure the person who sleeps
in the bed that his face is not coming in
contact with the bedding used by everybody.
The traveling salesmen are In great de
mand about election time, but when they
want a little legislation for their own bene
fit or comfort the press of the state take
It up and ridicule the salesman who Intro
duces our bill.
Very few of the hotel men are kicking on
the bill, as they say it will save them
money In the long run.
It a few of the editors in the state would
get out on the road for one week and go
up against what we do year after year the
preas would all be for us.

President Nebraska Travelers' Protective
Association.

Cleb Considers Child Labor.
It was child labor day with the Woman's
club at Monday afternoon's open meeting,
the program being provided by the social
science department. J. J. Ryder, ex-deputy
state labor commissioner and secretary of
the Nebraska Child Labor committee; Rev.
Jamea Wise, chairman of the State Board
of Inspectors and E. D. Gepson, attendance
officer of the city achooia, all of whom rep
resented Nebraska at the recent conference
of the National Child Labor committee at
Chicago, reported that conference, while
Rev. A. W. Clark of the Child Saving lnstl
tue told of the reoent conference called at
the While House by President Roosevelt in
the Interest of dependent chlldrn.
Mr. Ryder, while recognising the full
value of the conference, made the criti
cism that there was not time for dlacussion
of the practical work; that there waa too
many papers instead cf time for discussion
of the problems that havs been met and
overcome by aonse and that othera atill
have to meet, and regarding which they
need Information. Recognising this defect
Owen Lovejoy, chairman of the National
committee, has promised that there shall
be time for sectional conferences of work
ers In ths future. Mr. Ryder also advo
cated that these conferences in future be
held In smaller cities where there will be
fewer things to distrac t ths deli gates.
lie spoke of the evidence that public
sentiment has been aroused against child
labor and that the public will stay awake,
being now willing to fight against the evil.
The Nebraska child labor law he esteems
above the average and from experience aa
state labor commissioner he said that Ne
braska employers of children fully recog
nize that It would be futile to try to over
turn this law or attempt to make more
than minor amendments to it.
Nebraska Law Net Severe.
Mr. Wise took Issue with Mr. Ryder that
the Nebraska law ia In no danger and held
that only through the recognition of Indi
vidual responsibility In Its enforcement will
It be retained safe and efficient. He spoke
of the necessity of some feasible legislation
prohibiting child labor In occupations un
safe to the life and limbs of children, citing
the atatistlcs of one state where serious
accidents to children were 400 per cent
greater than to adults, and another state
where they were 1,100 per cent greater. He
urged the need of a chlldren'a bureau auch
as congress is now being asked to provide,
where official statistica may be gotten re
garding working children. He also urged
Industrial training In the achools and the
acholarshlp system, whereby children
whose Income is absolutely necessary to
the maintenance of a famly may be al
lowed to go to school and the atate or
county pay the family the equivalent of
what their earnings would be if they were
employed.
Mr. Gepson emphasized the need of co
operation among all workers along these
lines that their efforts might supplement
rather than duplicate.
Mr. Clark aald he was especially Im
pressed with President Roosevelt's evident
intimate knowledge of the conditions snd
needs of dependent children and his direct
and practical Ideas for the alleviation of
these conditions.
During the business hour of tha meeting
the club voted to Invite Governor and Mrs.
Shallenberger to be its guests at the next
open meeting, February IS, the governor to
be the principal speaker of the afternoon.
A luncheon will be given In their honor
at 12:30 at Hanson's cafe, which all mem
bers of the club will be privileged to at
tend. A resolution waa passed condemning the
Indiscriminate cartooning of public men,
officials and things, aa demoralizing and
conducive to disrespect.
