Before the member of the Omaha Real
Estate exchange, numerous city officials,
member cf the Water board and repre
sentatives of the Omaha Water company,
H. H. Baldrige reviewed the hlptory of the
litigation between the city and water com
pany and declared some compromise should
be made at once, ax he saw Increased
taxes coming to every owner of real estate
tn a lump which looked tike a black cloud,
and If the W.orstftnn of bond are Issued to
buy the plant, he did not think Omaha
could sell 4Uj per cent bond for many
year to come.
"Looking at all the sides of the case and
the positions which the attorneys for the
Water board have taken, which I believe
are strong ones; and It look to mo Indi
vidually that the chance are againat the
city of Omaha In the eases and that the
supreme court will hold against the Water
Speaking of the hydrant rentals, which
now amount to HT7.0O1. with I59.6SI Interest
besides, Mr. Baldrige said:
"This sum must be paid sooner or later
and the unjust thing about It is) that It
must be paid, not br those who should
pey It, but by men who now own and will
own Omaha property In the future. Since
the amount has been accumulating there
have been changes and the real estate own
er who have anld property will thua ea
cape paying the hydrant rentals which give
protection to their property."
Aa a Owalsf Pleats.
Looking over the United States. Mr.
Baldrige aaid he found but nine eitlea of
over 150.000 population which did not own
their own water plants, yet he waa not
tn favor of Omaha buying the present
plant unless It could be secured at a rea
sonable figure and removed from politics,
that It might not be used as the foot ball
of contending political parties and to pay
There is enough patronage distributed
by the city offlciala now to make the
hlgheet office In the city only a place
where a man may reward his friend and
some civil service rules ahould be adopted
and rigidly enforced if the cKy buys the
water works." he declared.
"I don't charge any wrongdoing to the
Water board, but an error in Judgment
now and then has undoubtedly placed the
city of Omaha tn a very unfortunate posi
tion and piled up expenses, which are get
ting larger and If the supreme court deci
sion Is against us, we can see taxes In
crease, costs which will almost swamp a
city with only 130.000 population, assessed
valuation of (13X000.000 and a bonded Indebt

Mr. Baldrige offered no solution for the
problem. He said he had none, but did
think some compromise, ought to be made
and made at once, even If the franchise of
the' present company had to be extended
with certain provisions and for a short time
until some arrangement could be made to
atop the growing debt which the city must
sooner or later pay and which la expenaive
all the time.

A peculiar system of beating Uncle Bam
out of his proper postage duee has been
unearthed by the postoffice inspectors In
Milwaukee and Chicago. The plan waa of
a party who wished to engage in clan
destine correspondence to rent a postoffice
box and secure duplicate keys. He would
then place hla letter unstamped In the box
and the party having the duplicate key
could get the letter and reply in the same
way with a postageless letter. The system
has come to grief and the parties hiring
the box are liable to have soma serious

SAFETY DEVICE BEING TRIED
Street Railway Casaaaay Eealpa Oae
Car with New Style af Plat
Official of the Omaha A Council Bluff
Street Railway company and the general
public had an opportunity to inspect the
Meyer' safety guard appliance Wednes
day morning, when a public demonstra
tion was msde at the corner of Fifteenth
and Farnam streets.
The device consists of gate at the front
and rear platform which swing up inatesd
of opening out as do gates heretofore tried.
The gate for the rear steps is worked by
the conductor from the rear platform or
from any point within the car and the
gate on the front platform 1 manipulated
by the motorman.
A large percentage of street railway ac
cidents are caused by people getting on
and off the car while It is in motion, and
thla device puts a stop to.thls class of
accidents by making It lnffjss'ble for a
passenger to get on or off a moving car.
The gatea are light and easily handled and
yet strong enough to withstand the weight
of a person who ahould happen tn rush
The contrivance waa placed on one of
the regular car of the company, which
will be put in regular service to see If the
car can make schedule time while the gates
are in service.
The street railway company haa been
making a most active campaign during the
last two years for the prevention of ac
cidents and while this company haa no
I interest In the invention, it is encouraging
It by giving it a trial.
