that was pretty good at the price we mentioned in the daily

had slipped into one of our big, long, graceful great coats,
with military collar, "There's some class to a coat like this.
That is certainly a swell shoulder and the fit of that' collar is
about the best I ever saw. I've had coats before, ready and
custom made, but never any thing equal to this one. Does
all your clothes fit that wayt If it does, it's a wonder to
me you don't sell all the clothing in Omaha for every other
place I have bought a suit or overcoat they have practically
made it all over, and then it was wrong. As long as you
have the garments that fit and look like these, it's me and
my friends for you."

-s y .V - ' -
to Well Up in Accounting as Any City
THINKS HIS TRIP PROFITABLE
Brlmsa Inforiuatloa He Believes Will
B Useful to Comptroller la Sub
. salttlagr Plan to the City
Deputy City Comptroller Cosgrove has re
turned from his trip of Investigation Into
municipal accounting of American cities.
Mr. Cosgrove has been In a doien states and
has met and conferred with the principal
accounting officers of about forty different
cities. II has gathered a mass of Informa
tion and a stack of blanks that he says
will prove of great value to the city offi
cials of Omaha In framing up the new
forms for the occupation tax collections
"Omaha la really as far ahead as any city
In Its essential accounting," said Mr. Cos
grove. "By that I mean our checks on the
cash box are as effective and accurate as
any I have seen. There are some methods
Of distribution, however, that are admlra
tie. For Instance, here we have four funds
-general, sinking, school and water board.
In many cities they have a much more ex
tended system of municipal division of
funds, by number or letter Index, and some
divide their moneys differently from our
plan. Thus, under the head ot public
safety, will be all the moneys for the fire
and police departments, and other divisions
1 are made along lines that suggest them
stives as sensible and feasible.
I believe, with the Information at hand
now, that Comptroller Lobeck ana myseu
will soon be- able to submit a plan or sug
gestion that will commend Itself to the
mayor and council. Perhaps we can do
this within ten days or two weeks.
That my trip waa worth while will be
Indicated by the fact that, on meeting the
tax commissioners of New York state at
Albany, I wao able to give them some In
formation they considered valuable, be
cause I was fresh from an Investigation In
several cities that are now dealing directly
with problems tlxat were puzzling the
New York officials.
'In Che matter of cost to Omaha, for
the Information gained, this city will fall
very much short of what similar work has
cost other cities. We get for a few hundred
dollars, through the uniform courtesy and
helpfulness of a large number of well
posted city . officials whom were Inter
viewed, what It coat Baltimore, for In
stance, 150.000 or more. Mayor Mahood
told me they paid experts $40,000 for a gen
eral outline of a system that would prevent
mishandling of city funds. To bring that
system down to details and make it work
able, another $10,000; and he expects It will
cost S10.000 to 115.000 more before they have
the plans all put In operation."
