The brick making Industry in Omaha will
be limited and no more brick yards will
be allowed within the city limits provid
ing the council concurs In the report of
the committee of the whole and passes
an ordinance prohibiting extending this
Industry. The committee yesterday after
noon recommended the ordinance for pass
age. Councilman Bridge voicing the only
J. Herman Krittcnbrlnk, a South Omaha
manufacturer of brick, applied for a iwrmlt
to establish a yard at Thirty-sixth and
Wright streets. Omaha, but he was met
with the objection of about 2X property
owner, who sent a petition to the council
protesting, against the proposed yard,
which, they declared, would be a nuisance.
This protest was received, but Instead of
refusing a permit to establish a brlck
ysrd st Thirty-sixth and Wright street or
the Immediate vicinity, the council de
cided to prohibit them anywhere In the city.
There I no ex-post facto provision in the
ordinance, and those kilns now established
will be allowed to operate.
Councilman Bridges exerted himself tre
mendously In behalf of the brick manufac
turer and made a strenuous speech In the
council chamber, but all for naught.
Baalaeaa sne Aroaaed.
"Her we are trying to build up a greater
Omaha, but whenever anyone come along
and attempt to spend his money In es
tablishing a new enterprise which would
give employment to core and scores of
men, we shut ttie door of the city In his
face and tell him to clear out," said the
councilman. "How In the name of Caeaar
are we going to build up a city with tac-.
tics of this sort? Brick Is shipped to
Omaha every day from Kansas and Mis
souri. If we had more kilns in this city
so that the supply could meet the demand,
we would not need to send our money out
of the city and it would stay in Omaha
and go Into the pockets of Omaha work
men." Citizens, some of whom lived a mile from
the proposed brick yard, objected on ac
count of the smoke which would Issue from
the plant, but Mr. Bridges declared the
smoke would not be half as dangerous as
the gas tank which the council refused to
move. "And gaa tanks blow up every little
while and kill scores of people, but no one
ever heard of a. brick klin blowing up,"
said the councilman.
9145,000 for Engine Houses.
The committee of the whole also recom
mended for passage the ordinance submit
ting to a vote of the people tha proposition
of Issuing bonds In the sum of $146,0 0 to
buy tc and erect fire engine houses.
This cams up in the council last week, but
Councilman Zimman succeeded In getting
It referred to, the committee of the whole
for further Investigation. Thi he did In
the hope that the council would agree to
a saving of $15,000 and erect house No. 2
on ths Isnd adjacent to the city Jail and
owned by the city. Mr. Zmmjn Is out of
the city and Mr. Bridges attempted to
fight the battle alone yeste.day, but lost.
The committee failed to coincide with the
view of Mr. Bridges, backed by plans, that
a fire eng'ne house could be erected on the
vacant city property, adjacent to the Jail
and decided to buy a new site. Mr. Bridges
then endeavored to have the bonds read:
"For the purchase of sites and the erection
and equipment of fire engine houses," In
stead of Just for Bites and the houses. If
the word "equipment" was Included any
balance could be used in buying apparatus,
otherwise it must go Into the sinking fund,
where It cannot be used. But the council
squelched htm again.
The third proposition of the councilman
was to Ivsue two set of bonds, one tr
purchase of sites and erection of house and
another for equipment, the two li-sues to
equal a total of $150,000. This, too, met
The limit that can ba voted Is $150,000, but
the council will ask for but $140,000. The
fir chief told Ihe councllnien' that ths
other $5,0(0 could be used to advantage and
that It I needed, but the council refused
to ask for the full amount.
