BYERS REVIVES OLD QUERY
Iowa Attorney General Eeopem Quei
tion of Street Kailway Franchise!.
WHICH ONE IS NOW OPERATIVE I
Sellsrraans' Attorneys Den? Claim of
Perpetual Grant and Attack la
Looked For JOIT, Wk
Oao FraackUe ft ana Oat. '
The opinion by Attorney General Byera
of Iowa that the only general franchise of
the Omaha & Council Bluffs Street Rail
way company In Council Bluffs expires In
two years has caused a renewal of discus
sion as to what franchise the company Is
operating under In Omaha.
Various opinions have been expressed by
attorneys on the subject, aome asserting
the franchise rights expire In 1917, others
In IMS, and It Is understood the company
arserts Its rights are perpetual under the
enabling act passed In 1889 authorising the
consolidation of the Independent lines then
oprratlng In the city.
Whichever one of these opinions is cor
rect,' It is tfell understood that before 1917,
when several of the old Independent fran
chises expire, a big legal battle will be
started to determine Just what the rights
of the company ajv. The situation from a
legal standpoint Is complicated by the fact
that many franchises havo been granted at
different times and that most of the com.
panles receiving these are represented dl
roily or indirectly In the merger under the
act of 18. '
l""wyera Bay Not Perpetaal.
A legal opinion In writing, which la suf
ficient authority to eommand weight, was
rendered by Attorneys ttheenan and Collin
of New York, who made an examination of
the subject for the Bellgmans, the New
York bankers. The attorney In . their
opinion say that the counsel for the com
pany olaim m perpetual franchise under the
act of 1SS9, . but they express the opinion
that (the company Is operating under a
franchise" granted In 1W8 for forty years.
This would make It expire In 1928.
The grants -of rights for street railway
purposes In Omaha date back to territorial
days. The first one recorded Is In 1?
urder ordinance No. 160 runnlns for fifty'
years, with- m reversionary elause, by the
terms of which the city becomes the owner
of the property at the end of he period.
This, In the opinion of lawyers, la not in
force now. as the rights under It have
probably been- abandoned.
In 1884 the Cable; Tramway company was
ti anted a franchise for a cable line under
ordinance No. 818 coveting certain streets.
In June, 1887. the Metropolitan Cable Rail
way company under ordinance No. 1336,
was given a thirty-year franchise over cer
The Introduction. of electricity as a mo
tive power led to a new franchise for
ihe Northwesttrn Street Railway company
under ordinance 1433, passed July 2, 18S7,
extended over a period of thirty years.
This was the flrst'franchlse under which
electrically driven cars could operate.
The following year. May, 1SS8, ordinance
No. 1731, which he Seligman lawyers refer
to as the one under which the company Is
operating, was passed. It grants for forty
years the right to operate cars moved by
cable, compressed air, electricity or steam
motor over the streets. Prior tj this an
ordinance wt.s passed granting tho right to
operate on the city viaducts.
Several Are Organised.
Several companies were organised under
these various franchises and two or three
were operating in 18N), when what Is known
as the enabling act was passed by the
legislature. The purpose of this was to
permit the companies to consolidate into
the old Omaha 'Street Railway company,
which later became the present Omaha &
Council Bluffs Street .Railway company,
after the consolidation with the Council
Bluffs lines. Under the terms of this act
all franchise and reversionary rights of the
various companies were preserved, but iu
the grant of powers Is one to "hold In
perpetuity all the property, rights, powers
and franchises conferred upon said consti
Under this act It la claimed the company
has perpetual rights to the atreeta, of the
city. .-- r
Under the conditions it is not probable
tbat any legal action to, test the franchises
can be started' much before 1917, when the
flist of the franchises expire. It Is cer
tain, however, that when this time comes
a test in court will be made and will be
fought probably to the supreme oourt of
the United States.
Two Real Estate
Men Have Fight
Harry B.-Wolf and C. B. Denny Mix
and Former Says He Triumphed.
A corridor In the Pas ton block was trans
formed Into a ring and two Omaha real
estate men were the principals in an en
counter, when Harry B. Wolf and C. B.

The fray was near the elevator on the
fourth floor of the building and while it

"I left Denny looking like -Ketchel after
Johnson got through r with him," said Mr.
At Mr. Denny's office inquiry revealed
he would be In in about five minutes.
It is said the cause was of long standing.

fell In the outskirts of Aclreale, but only
one person was killed. The victim was a
yeterlnary surgeon who refused to- abandon
his house. It was among those thrown
down by the later and heavier shocks and
he was burled In the wreckage. The walls
Of many houses were cracked. The whole

about 5,000 miles from here.

I'rlntlng company have returned from Chi
cago, where they attended a meeting of
job printers, at which a movement was

One hundred and eighty-five delegates

vise a system of figuring the cost of

now Is many shops are run In an unbusi

Campaign Managers Busy
With Election Day Near
NEW YORK. Oct. U. With New
York's municipal election only twelve days
distant, the campaign today reached the
stage of hopeful forecast and optlmletlo
estimates. Here are the "probabilities"
estimated by campaign managers for the
three candidates for mayor:
Bannard (republican-fusion), by 40.000.
Oaynor (democrat), by 75,000.
Hearst (Independent), by M.000.
The confidence expressed by all the
campaign managers was pointed out by
many ' observers tonight as a further In
dication of the nonpartisan character of
the support upon which the candidates
depend and ef the breaking down to a
great extent of party lines in the con
sideration of New York's municipal prob
lems. There were more than 100 minor meet
ings In various parts of New York to
night, with a plethora of cart-tail oratory
on almost every important street corner
In the congested residence districts.
Justice Gaynor toured the, East Side "7
automobile, repeating his previous attuA
on Hearst and Bannard and emphasising
particularly his plea for more "personal
liberty" and for a, liberal construction of
Bannard was heard tonight in Btaten
Island. "I am a business man," he told '
his hearers. "I was never a candidate for
office and have no political ambition: If
elected I shall do nothing else but work
faithfully at my new Job and try to leave
a good name when the four years art
over."' ' '
William M.'Ivlns, the former republican
candidate foY mayor, who Is now advo
cating the election of Hearst, spoke to
night in a dosen small meetings. .He told
bis hearers that he waa entirely satisfied
with the progress of the campaign and
continued with a repetition of ht former
attacks on Justice Oaynor. - .,,
