Neber Can Move
Appeal ii Taken and Long: Drawn Out
Contest ia Due for a Bound
in the Court.
After receiving evidence and listening to
argument by attorney at sitting cover
ing nearly three months, tha Board of
Fire and Police Commissioners Monday
night voted to grant Charle Neber the
right to tranafer hi license for tha sale
of Intoxicating liquor from IIS South Fif
teenth street to Twenty-third and Leaven
worth atreet. Attorney fof the Protestants
gave notice of an appeal and the tranafer
will be withheld until this Is adjudicated.
Church Interests objected to the tranafer
of tha license and the opening of a third
saloon In tha vicinity and oonelderabJe evi
dence wa submitted on both aides and
much Interest ha been taken In the caee.
When the vote waa taken Commissioners
Oilier and Karbach voted for the transfer.
Commissioner Pag against and Commis
sioner Floodman, the new member of the
board and therefore not conversant with
the conditions, declined to vote. Mr. Page
explained hla negative vote by reason of
his belief that the majority of the resi
dents of the vicinity ought to know better
what waa wanted In their vicinity than
tha board. Thla stand was taken by Mayor
Dahlman, but aa ex-offlclo member of tha
board he Is not entitled to a vote only
In cases of a tie and therefore he waa
not recorded on either ide.
Next Monday night was set for examina
tion of applicanta for positions on the fir
and police departments.
Albert Ddholm, the jeweler, sent tha
board a check for IM out of tha 1600 re

"I hope the day will coma when the peo
ple of Omaha will realise that they are all
stockholders In the biggest enrporttion In
the state and that It la their duty to take
a tittles Interest in the management of the
affairs of that corporation." said Harry B.
Zlmman. republican candidate for mayor,
who waa invited to address the Druid Hill
Improvement club Monday evening at the
Diet Athletic association park on the sub
ject of "Occupation Tax."
"The people of Omaha should keep In
touch with what la going on at the city
hall. It la not generally known even by
the taxpayera that outalde the school fund
we annually levy a tax of tl.OBO.000 appor
tioned to the various funds. Of this
amount $250,000 Is used to pay Interest on
our Indebtedness, $140,000 ror the fire fund,
$160,000 for the police fund, 170.000 for light
ing. 171,000 for parks, 160,000 for street clean
ing, 1110,000 for public work and 1100.000 for
general purposes. Thla la entirely Inade
quate for the needa of the city of Omaha.
We roust hava mora money. We must add
1300,000 a year mora to thla. The bonded
Indebtedneaa of tha city, and especially for
sewers, must be Increased $1,000,000. We
ow $100,000 a year for water rent and hava
owed It for flv years. The present legisla
ture allows us to levy $100,000 more a year
for fire and police and atreet cleaning. We
have $:,600,000 Invested In sewers and apend
less than $15,000 a year to maintain these.
We have Idle engine houses and no money
to buy equipment to fill them or to hire
men to man them. We must have Increased
How Money Can Be Raised.
"When such a condition confronts us
soma one must pay. I believe the small
ownera and anjall taxpayera already pay
enough for the beneflta they receive. What
I wish to maintain Is that we can meet thla
ituatlon by an occupation tax on the pub
lic aervlce corporations of Omaha, on the
corporatlona which enjoy special privilege
"The corporations of Omaha are vitally
Intereated in city affairs and In having
a mayor and city council which will give
them what they want. The people should
rather select men who will represent them,
for If they are fair to the people they
will be fair to the corporation.
"Senator Howell tried to take the power
to levy an occupation tax from the city
council, but the people rose In their might
and induced the legislature to abandon
"Tha occupation tax ! x tax to take
the place of a royalty or franchise tax,
which ahould hava been levied when the
franchise waa granted. We propose to
levy a tax of S per cent on tha gross re
ceipt of the public utility corporation
which use the streets of Omaha. Thla
ahould bring $XO,000 Into the treasury the
first year and relieve the financial dilemma
of the city. We propose to us the money
in auch a way as will benefit the taxpayer.
It may be best to lay the money aside
aa a bonded Indebtedness fund and wipe
out that indebtedness of the city In twenty
year. Or perhaps It might be best to
use It to meet the current expenses of the
"There i no doubt but what these cor
porations csn sfford to pay an occupation
tax. The new-telephone company. In com
petition with one of the strongest corpora
tion in the oountry, can afford It."
Mr. Zlmman read the report of the
atreet railway company, filed with
the State Railway commission, to show
that the company could efford It. He as
serted that the Omaha Gas company waa
getting $28 a light from the city tor atreet
Ughta which would yield a profit at $14
a light. He asserted that the Omaha
Water company and the Nebraska Tele
phone company paid nothing for the use
of the streeta.

Sharp, owner of a transfer line. Is thinking
about, and what the Commercial club of

This will gtve those who do not have

With a taxicab the Indicator would al

The movement means training of a num

RIGDT WAY TO GET REFORMS
Addreuei Delivered Before Men'i
Club of Freibyterian Church.
LOCAL SITUATION ANALYZED
Power ef Pel lee Retard aad of tk
Yarloaa low Officer Saaday Base
Ball and Other Amusements
Taaea I ),
"The night Way to Oo About Heel Re
form, With Particular Reference to Omaha
Conditions." was tha theme discussed by
John L Kennedy at a meeting of the Men'
club of the Flrt Presbyterian church. In
brief, the speaker declared that tha right
way la to go to the proper officials In the
Mr. Kennedy' address Included state
ments that two-thirds of a vote taken to
day would be In favor of Sunday base ball,
the grand Jurtea who have fault to find can
properly apeak only by Indictment and not
by criticising officials; that the belief that
the quickest way to get rid of an unpop
ular law Is to enforce It la largely a beau
tiful theory which does not work out In
Beginning with the statement that no
country In the world haa aa many unwise
statute on the book a the United States,
Mr. Kennedy passed to a discussion of local
conditions, and flrat made It clear that the
responsibility for enforcement of laws and
ordinance rests with tha county and city
prosecutors. The erroneous Idea that the
Board of Fire and Police Commissioners
hss this power, he dispelled by reading the
statutes on the point. Later In his ad
dress he explained how an Idea to the con
trary had grown and why.
"It la because," said he, "the board haa,
In the past stretched Its powers and done
things It was never Intended to do." In
Instance he quoted the order to the chief
of police to "eelie the slot machines of
the city and throw them In the garbage
pile. When the attorneys for the machine
owners, realising the situation, sought an
Injunction In district court. I appeared with
the assistant city attorney and said: 'This
man stands here a self-confessed law
breaker. He asks the power of this court
to aid him In continuing to break the law.'
I knew that no court of equity would ex
ercise Its power for such a purpose."
Sunday Base Ball.
With regard to Sunday base ball. Mr.
Kennedy aald: "I, myself, would not at
tend a ball game) on Sunday nor play golf
that day, but we must remember that the
beat organised church in thl city sanctions
this and another of the leading churches
acquiesces at least. We must remember too
that all men arc not so fortunate a wa
are and are cooped up to a greater extent
through the week. This much I do say,
that no game should be permitted which
disturbs a community or a church.
"When a ccmmlttee of the Ministerial
union waited on the Firo and Police board
and asked them to arrest the ball players
they cited the action of the board with
regard to slot machines. I should think they
might recognise the difference between an
Inanimate gambling device and live clti
ena fully as respectable as ourselves.
"If a vote were taken In Omaha tomorrow
two-thirds would favor Sunday base ball."
Mr. Kennedy dwelt chiefly upon the situ
ation as It exists by law with reference to
enforcement by executive officers, the
mayor and the prosecutors. He showed that
the chief function of the board Is In mat
ters of discipline of members of the two de
partments, but he referred to progress of
cltlsenshlp In general and declared that a
government will never rise above the
standard of a community and that reform
must be planned with this in mind. He
was asked If he favored an appointive cr
elective board and declared that the latter
would be best In the long run although for
