U LIGHTING CONTRACT IP
Will be Formally Introduced in
COUKCILMEfJ GO AHEAD SLOWLY
Ji.irbit Gathering and It Odorous
Peculiarities ftobjert of Debate
la toinrll (ommlltrf of
Councilman' Fheldon brought forward Uj?
proposed new lighting ordinance, carrying
contract with the Omtha F.lcctrlc I,lKhl
company for a period of five yars from
Iecember SI, at th meeting of the city
council committee of the whole Monday
afternoon. It was read at length, talked
over extensively, and then 'lied, to be
replaced by n ordinance of better verbiage.
This will be read for the first time Tues
day evening at council meeting after whloh
copies will be furnished the councilman
for careful examination.
Mr. fiheldnn explained the jrdlnnnco as
he read It. He said . It Is practically a
copy of the agreement about to expire,
except that lights will be furnished the
city In Its streets and public places for a
flat rate of $ a lamp.
This will be further reduced." he said
"to a net flgrure of ' M 20. because of th '
I per cent occupation tax. and that Is
cheaper than any city In the country gets
Its lights, with the possible exception of
Cleveland, O. We have letters from thirty
eight different cities and you may exam ne
a tabulated statement we have prepared of
their replies to our Inquiries."
The chairman of the :lglitlng committee
explained that the cost per lamp this year
Is $75, with a total rebate to the city of
a little better than $14.0X1. Under the new
contract there will be no rebate, since the
occupation tax hits the company In com
mon with other pub) la service corpora-
Concession on Incandescent.
Both Mr.' Sheldon and President Nash
,of the Electric Light company also dwelt
on the concession the company has made
to let the city have Its Incandescent lights
for cents per watt, instead of 8 cents, the
present rate. Councilman Funkhouser also
ctated his belief the new contract Is a
good thing for the city.
Mr. Nash claimed the electric light com
( pany has always treated Omaha with great
consideration In the matter of lighting
charges, making very little money on the
street lights, and losing a trifle on the
Incandeescents because of furnishing the
globes. He Insisted the tW flat rate could
not be given for less than a five-year con
tract. Councllmen McQovern, Johnson, Hummell
and Berka were in a questioning mood,
and asked many times for Information. The
replies they got bore the appearance of
frankness and good intentions, but they
reserved the right to shake their heads
doubtlngly until until they have gone care
fully over the new ordinance when It
Councilman Btrrmester voiced the thought
of some of his colleagues, after the meet
ing, when he said that he objects to mak
ing contracts that will run over the term
of the present council. "I don't like this
cary-over plan," he said.
Talkfeat on Garbs are.
s Os.-bage was the fare of the committee
' in a Jengthy language feast. It had been
long since the members had enjoyed a
chance to chew on the waste food, and
some of them sailed In with lltt.'e or no
caution. Others, like the two kids of the
council, Echroeder and Davis, and the old
fox of the bunch,, Hummell. laid off to
see the effect on their vehement mates.
The stuff is still undigested.
Health Commissioner Connell bit & piece
light out of the center when called Into
the game, and Councllmen Berka and
Brucker cut In with vim. McGovern took
a sly hand now and again, but to Berka
and Brucker was left the heavy end of
"You come on and show me where we
can do anything with this mess and I'll
glva In," quoth Judge Berka to the Judicial-fronted
Brucker. "We simply cannot
turn over this new consignment of gar
bage law without giving away our whole
hand," he continued, "and that we must
"The city attorney and his assistants
showed you the Inside of the whole box,"
retorted Brurker, "when they assured the
council the present garbage ordinance Is
In good standing, of approved odor, and
will l-nld the contractor If Its terms lire
enforced But at the same time the con
tractor does n-t wsnt the stale and un
profitable "eavings'nnly. If he cannot have
an exclusive chance at the whole spread
You do not protect him. the health com
missioner cannot protect him and the police
will not protect him, nor will the police
Juilga shoo off his rivals for the best
in the barrels."
Connell Sore on Whole Thlaa;.
"That Is true." admitted the health com
missioner, without any outward Indication
of hunicer for the aforesaid barrels. "I
know that butters-ln who hive no con
tract with the city gather the tidbits on
the gaibae routes, leave ony the sera
plmrs for Mr. Axtell and Mr. McTher
ron, and we have been unable to secure
convictions or punishments, beyond a total
of f2 In Ines. If the contract for the
garbage picking Is good, let us protect
the men who own the privilege and are
under bond to the city. If the contract is
no good, then we ought to adopt some
other plan, after the ltgal uepartmeht
has stuck Its finger In the potpourri. The
district system has been In operation in
Denver for fifteen years, and It might do
as well here."
After hearing the legal objsctlons of
Judge Berka to leaving any possiblo loop
hole for the present contractors to brtak
away, the committee passed on to other
items on the menu, leaving the garbaKe
feature and non-collection of garbage to
be tackled by Mr. Burnam and his as
sistants. A letter from Guy L. Axtell, the official
garbage gatherer, saying the garbage sit
uation is growing worse and worse ail the
time was read by Dr. Connell. The coun
cllmen were unanimous in agreeing with
the statement of Mr. Axtell.

Bids for paving contracts covering ten
different districts and Including an area of
nearly inri.fli) yards of paving occupied the
attention of the city council In last night's
session. The bids Included all classes of
material from paving brick to creosoted
wood block. The contracts were sought by
nine different firms.
The bidders were: The National Construc
tion company. The Barber Asphalt Paving
company, Offerman Plumbing, Heating and
Construction company, Dan Hannon, Hugo
Murphy, Charles Fanning. Mike Jensen and
the General Contracting company. The bids
were complicated and the low bidder in ono
class of materials was often Sigh In nn
other. It will require a complete tabula
tion of the bids before the lowest bidder in
each class of paving Is determined.
Each of the bidders was required to fur
nish a check as a guarantee of good, faith.
Several bids were conditional and will prob
ably be Ignored on that account. The Bar
ber Asphalt Paving company made a stipu
lation that over 25.000 yards of paving b
awarded before the propositions should be
binding. The Offerman Plumbing. Heating
and Construction company stipulated that
the designated kinds of paving block should
be used at the bidder's option and this will
probably Invalidate the contract.
The bids were referred to the committee
of the whole council and the city engineer
Connection for Fire Denied.
A notice, from the SeorasKa Telephone
company was received refusing to switch
calls from private telephones to the fire
halls for the purpose of giving alarms
unless the city pay at the same rate for
the telephone calls as for the automatic
fire box system. The company also de
sires a contract releasing the company
from liability for errors made in trans
mitting a call. The city council took no
action on this matter last night other than
to refer the matter to the council com
mittee for Investigation.
J. L. Duff gave notice of damages to a
house and lot near Twentieth and N
streets to the amount of 11,500 on account
of alleged poor sewer conditions, which
cause storm water to undermine the prop
erty. Three new paving ordinances were ad
vanced and put upon second reading. A
protest was received against the grade of
P street, from Twenty-second to Twenty
fourth streets and of Twenty-third street,
from O to Q.
The Savings Bank and Trust company
made a bid of par for a block of $1,000
worth of grading bonds for the grading
of M street. The company attached the
condition that the city pay (400 attorney
fees and enclosed no certified check." The
condition of the bid will probably cause It
to be rejected.

Snspeeted Burglar Arrested.
The Bouth Omaha police arrested James
Oreer, a colored man from Pueblo,' Colo.,

Mrs. Emily R. Dow Dead.
Mrs. Emily K. Dow, aged 82 years, died
last night at the home of her daughter at
2301 South Twenty-ninth street, Omaha.

Arthur Long, killed by Wesley McBrlde
Saturday, was not held this afternoon,
but was postponed until Wednesday, when
it will take place at the coroner's South
Omaha office, beginning at 2 p. m.
The McHride boy will, it Is said, have
to face a prosecution for murder in spite
of his youth. Insanity will be the likely
defense. There can be many witnesses
called to testify to queer, or at least un
usual behavior on the part of the boy, who
is 16 years of age.
The funeral of Harry Long will 4e held
this morning at o'clock from the resi
dence to St. Agnes church. The burial will
be at St. Mary's cemetery.
. Mrs. George McBrlde is seriously 111 as
a result of the shock of events which have
brought her son, Wesley McBrlde, to face
a charge of murder. Mrs. E. A. Ashbury
of Grafton, Neb., and M. W. Strater, her
brother and sister, are visiting her In her

LAWYER MAKES "CLEANING"
AT FLORENCE COCK FIGHT
Fremonter Overconfident tn Ills Bird
Old Southern Sport at
It has leaked out that Pries' lake,
within the city limits of Florence, was the
scene of some cock fighting recently
which resulted In a crowd of South Omaha
sports, one of them a prominent lawyer,
cleaning up a big sum of money, prin
cipally from a Fremont fancier, who came
down with what he Imagined was the
king-pin cock fighter in the country, but
which proved to be an "also ran" when
the birds produced by the South Omaha
delegation got after him.
As a result of the fights the South
Omaha men cleaned up at least SA, a big
portion of which caftie from the pockets of
the Fremonter. The first Inkling of the
haul made by those from South Omaha
waa when local night workers, taking an
owl car for home, discovered it to be a
special from Florence, carrying the South
Omahans homeward. They chuckled In
their glee and mada no secret of their suc
cess of "miking" the man from Fremont.
A quiet investigation conducted at Flor
ence has resulted in locating the man who
drove the South Omaha men from the
end of the car line to Pries' lake, a dis
tance of a half to three-quarters of a mile,
but the only man in the party identified
was the lawyer.

Boy is Killed ,
by Street Car
Arthur Gross Struck at Thirtieth and
Lalk Streets and Dies in
While out driving at 4 o'clock Monday
afternoon In his little cart, to which was
attached a pet pony, Arruur Gross, li-year-old
son of B. Gross, a retail grocer
at 3423 North Thirtieth street, was
thrown beneath the wheels of a construc
tion train on the street railway at Thir
tieth and Lalk streets and .sustained in
juries which resulted in his death two
hours later. Jut what caused the acci
dent may never be- known. The .belief Is,
however, that the little cart was over
turned by a big stone and that young
Gross was caught before he could save
himself or the train be brought to a stop.
The boy was badly mangled, his right
leg above the knee and his left arm above
the elbow being so badly shattered that
amputation was deemed necessary at once.
The youth was hurried to the Swedish
Mission hospital and several physicians at
once summoned to look after him.

Hearing has begun before Judge Leslie

The plaintiff is Dr. Andrew B. Somers,
acting for the Anti-Saloon league, which
wants Its four candidates seated in spite
of the fact that they got only
about 4.000 of the 16,000 votes cast.
The Incumbents, together with the demo
cratic candidates, are the defendants. The
petition, fll'-d shortly after the spring elec
tion, charges that the election was illegal
because the republicans and democratic
candidates went on the ballot In groups
under the party designations. The candi
dates of the Anti-Saloon league were not
allowed so to appear on the ballot.
What case the plaintiff has is generally
held to be a mystery, for the matter was
decided by district court before election.
