Mayor Dahlman, City Engineer Craig
and Street Commissioner Flynn have
formed themselves Into a great triumvirate
and started out to clean up tba city ai
never before.
They are firmly resolved to maka con
tractors and business men walk turkey
and oome up to the scratch during the
next few days and there will be no let
up In the campaign either day or night,
workday or Sunday, until the business dis
trict presents a respectable appearance.
The mayor was the first to realise what
the city Is up against In the way of dirty
. streets and uncompleted improvements In
the downtown district at this inopportune
time when the city Is beginning to fill' up
with thousands of delegates to the Eagles
convention and visitors to King Ak-Sar-Ben's
carnival. He decided what ought to
be done and what must be done, and
then called in the engineer and street
commissioner and told them what was
what in so many words. The result is
that the three departments executive, en
gineering and cleaning will work together
in an effort to make things hum.
First Effort sixteenth Street.
. First efforts were put forth by the en
glneer on Sixteenth street, whera th en
tire pavement has been torn up for oVer
a week between Farnam and Douglas
streets preparatory to replacing old street
car rails with heavy steel and th aid

a long conference with the officials of the

In short order. Concrete mast set three
days before th asphalt U laid, but the
city engineer believes th ntlr work can
be out of th way before Thursday, the
day for th Eagle parade.
The work would hav been completed be
fore bad th craws not been hindered by
rain. It was also found necessary to put
a concrete baa under the heavy rails and
this took " mora time than waa planned.
All sidewalk repair orewa hav been or
dered by th engineer to get oat of the
way by Saturday night and the street
commissioner has ordered all thes crews
to remove all their material th same
night No more sidewalks will be repaired
until after th carnival.
Farnam Improvements frosa Rear.
Improvements being made on buildings
on the south side of Farnam street be
tween Fifteenth and Seventeenth streets
and on the north side of Farnam street
near Fourteenth street, opposite th Pax
ton hotel, where the Eagles mak head
quarters, Is preventing th cleaning' of this
principal street. Th street commissioner,
aided by the chief of polio, will endeavor
to get these builders to carry on their
work from the rear and to pll their,
material In the alleys.
Earth being hauled from three large
excavations In the downtown section the
court house, th City National bank and
the Brandels theater building is keeping
the streets dirty, but no method has as yet
been devised whereby this can be don
away with.

Men Said to Be Collecting Little

A large gang of sharpers operating In

loss to the police. He told the police he
had been buncoed out of $150 by three
men, who played cards and .attached his
roll, piece by piece, while be stood by
and staked one of the poker players with
funds to gamble In the game.
John W. Harvey, a horse trader Vnd In
dian Interpreter of Rosebud, 8. D., was
found In company with a suspect when
Officers Fleming and Thornton went to
the park from their beats.
"He told me there was something doing
In on of the ravines In the northeast cor
ner of th park, and he led me toward
the place," said Harvey of Davenport.
"But I mistrusted him and managed to
get to Park avenue, where he officers
met us and arrested Davenport."
Harvey had $250 on his person, the money
being . Intended to start him in the state
university this fall. He Is stopping -at the
Iter Grand while undergoing treatment in
Omaha for his eyes. His money was not
lost to th swindlers, as he suspected
something wrong and th police arrived on
th acena.

Conclusions of an Old Flalnamaa
Who Hears I.o Sins; Throagh
a Phonoaraph.
Not long ago an enterprising Omahan
corralod a real Indian from the Pine Ridge
agency and got him to sing several of the
Indian rhapsodies, sonnets, love songs,
symphonies and themes Into a phonograph.
Several friends of the enterprising Oma
han were Invited to his home a few days
ago to hear the reproduction of the In
dian music. The music was weird and
thrilling, If a little deficient In artistic
Among those present at the Indian musl
cale was an old plainsman who. after
hearing the collection of phonograpblo pro
ductions through, remarked:
"That is Indian singing, all right, and Is
good stuff. It has opened my eyes to a
thing I could never understand before, and
that is, where ths coyotes got the music
for their bowls? I see now, tat y got It
from an Indian concert. "
The Spirit of Nebraska
z Many writers have exhausted
themselves'in discussing the spirit
of .Nebraska. The hopefulness, the
courage, the enthusiasm of the Ne
braska citizens cannot be avoided.
His pride is boundless, his faith is
far reaching. His belief in the men,
his admiration for the women, and
his confidence in the institutions of
his locality, makes him'eloquent as
he espouses them. It is a fine spirit
and the right one. It will carry a
man far, and it will carry a com
munity farther if its men all join
in it.
It is sufficient to state here that a
tidal wave of progressdveness has
struck the county seats and small
cities of Nebraska. Opportunity has
knocked at their door, and they has
tened to undo the latch. If the city
and country towns are to hold their
own, in the present strenuous strug
gle for existence and advancement,
they must adapt measures to re-
move every possible cause of fric
tion in their machinery of trade.
Publicity is the key to the twenti
eth century business success. He
who has a business must get it be
fore the world, or the world will
pass him by. The general laws of
publicity, which apply to ordinary
business institutions apply with ad
ditional force to municipalities, to
communities and cities'. To settle
up a country you must attract emi
gration by exploiting its resources.
To build up a town or city you must
advertise to the world its industrial
and commercial possibilities. ,
For this purpose there has sprung
up in nearly every town and villiage
in Nebraska some kind of public or
ganization, working for the indus-
trial development of the community.
All these have one aim in view the
betterment of the town and the
email city, that it may be a more
pleasant place in which to live and
therefore more prosperous. These
associations are found in nearly
every live community. To these
bodies are intrusted the. unsched
uled and undefinable possessions of
the public. It is for them to mar
shal and exploit the resources of
their particular territory by adver
tising them as they would goods in
their own personal business.
The woking capital, or moro
strictly speaking, the stock in trade
of any municipality is the unoccu
pied territory. The industrial, raw
material, and the business oppor
tunities within its particular sphere
of influence. Every home town is a
center of industry, the throbbing,
dominating heart of its surronding
It is quite plain that the time has
arrived for a stirring up of the com
munity conscience to a realization
of the duty the individual owes to
his town. Every good citizen owes
allegiance first to his family; second
to the community in which he lives;
and third, to the nation. Selfish
ness, when home is an object, is al
most a virtue. .What is needed are
more and more who will appreciate
their obligation to organized com
munities. The country towns and
small cities in Nebraska that from
whatever cause fail to take advant
age of every trade wind that blows
to retain its legitimate local busi
ness, will lose out in the race. But
the town that organizes its forces
and makes an intelligent and sys
tematic fight for its own will win
out and prosper and wax strong.
The average Nebraska country
town is up-to-date on everything ex
cept the highways that lead to it.
The common highways bear the
same relation to the country town
that the railroads bear to the great
commercial center. They are gath
erers of business. The introduction
of the telephone, the rural free de
livery, the trolley line and the auto
mobile, instead of decreasing, has
enlarged the trade territory of the
country town. The Nebraska peo
ple are noted for their habit of get
ting together and talking things
over. This custom of interchanging
ideas among various classes of
workers, as the farmer, the manu
facturer, the artisan, the merchant,
the banker and the professional
man, is most strongly established
in these prairie counties where civ
ilization has made the greatest
strides. It has come to be natural
for him to accomplish by co-operation
what he cannot do alone. The
man who has pride in his home town
and who, if it does not meet his
ideas, works and strives to arouse
enthusiasm in others to make it
sjich, is the best citizen. Just as we
are considered a nation practically
sufficient unto ourselves, so the cit
izens of Nebraska are loyal to home
It is for these reasons that "The
Story of Nebraska" is being told in
The Omaha Sunday Bee. The inves
tigations are being made with care,
and the stories of the counties are
told conservatively. They are ac
complishing great good for Nebraska.
