Some Things You Want to Know-
state Department Index.
The most complete Index to diplomatic
trar.ractlona In the world Is now being
made at the State department in Washing
ton. It will represent the most thorough
application of modern methods to the trans
action of governmental bulne that Is
to be found. It has kept pace with current
events since It was started In IMS, and
giadually all of the archives of the-.depsrt-ment
bark of that year will be classified
and Indexed In the same way. so that
when the whole work Is completed, the
entire diplomatic history of the world, as It
has affected the I'nlted Statea, will be
placed at the finger tips of him who has
accesa to the cards.
Roughly Breaking, the matters ulth which
the State department has to do are of two
kinds those which are of permanent im
portance and those which are ephemeral.
The latter probably cease to be of value
after a year or so, yet under the law may
not be destroyed. But a greater proportion
of the correspondence and information of
the Slate department is of permanent value
than in the case of any other department.
The smartest Item of today may affect the,
diplomacy if the world a dozen ycara hen-e.
It Is important that these thlns be filed
sway, snd equally important that they may
be readily accessible when they are needed.
They would be needles In the haystack cf
voluminous record were It not for the card
That the volume of correspondence of the
department is large Is shown by the fact
that It has required nearly 500. Ono cards to
Index the accumulated matter of less than
four years. That It covers a wide range
Is shown by the fact that It may relate to
an International situation affecting all the
powers, or to the registration of the mar
riage of John Smith and Susie Brown In
Paris, with the American consul as wit
ness. Its services are In requisition In
hundreds of ways. Its consular service
gathers business Information, general and
specific, from all parts of the world, thus
bringing foreign commercial opportunity
within reach of American enterprise.
The negotiations that kd to the execu
tion of the Argent'n ship contract, whereby
American ship builders have secured Judg
ments which will give employment to
thoi sands of laborer, is but ono of the
hundreds of cases where the consular
itrvlce has been the American lookout on
the walchtowera of International trade. So
complete has this eervlce been made that
Its principal features have been copied by
all the other commercial nations. If the
American manufacturer does not receive
fe great benefit from It ss tho German
manufacturer receives from the German
service It is simply because he overlooks
his trade opportunities. The German and
Englishman eagerly enter every door of
foreign trado opportunity opened by their
cot niar representatives.
All matters pertaining to the American
ena of International conferences and con
gresses are arranged through the State
department. Various Institutions, including
missionary societies, have their protection
assured through Its labors, as In the cose
of the establishment of schools, hospitals
and the like. It maintains a record of the
marriage, of all American cltlsens abroad,
when performed In the presence of Ameii
car consuls and certified by them, and of
American children born abroad. It also
maintains a register of all Americans resid
ing In foreign lands, according to consular
districts. Inquiries arc . made relative to
the whereabouts or fate of American cltl
irr. who drop out of sight. For Instance,
an electrical engineer goes to' Ecuador, and
his friends lose track of him. The depart
ment endeavors to locato hliri.
When .American are deprived of their
lieaty rights abroad or those of aliens In
fringed In the United States the department
conducts the resulting International corre
rpondence. It collects Information for con
gress, as in the case of postal savings
banks and Inland waterways abroad, In
formation about treaties, gives Information
to foreign governments concerning mar
riage and divorce laws In the states, and
many other matters, looks after the United
States courts in extra-territorial regions,
and Issues letters rogatory In court cases
which aro tried in one country while testi
mony is desired from another country. It
looks after all treaties, matters of extradi
tion, foreign and International tariff rela
tions and all similar subjects.
In addition to this it keeps a record of
all diplomatic notables of the world a sjrt
cf "who's who" of the nations. For In
stance, when any other power appoints one
of Its citizens on a board or court of arbi
tration It is very desirable for tho United
States to know the antecedents of that
person. And when country sends a

Thcae and a multitude ()f varying details
cover the work of the department, and
only the most scientific Indexlrg will make

Under the State department method all
files on related matters are now crouped
together In a logical mnnntr. When rny
bureau wants to refer to i mnttr that
has been filed away and Indexed, a cnid
la sent to the Index bureau asking for that
particular file. It Is hunld along anl
roturned to Its appropriate piaci- es soon
as possible. In this wsy all lost motion
Is eliminated and the beat results obtain
able under modern Indexing methods are
There are about thirty employes engaged
In the work of classification, filing and In
dexing. Recent economies of administra
tion will enable the department to utilize
the energies of about one-third of these
In the task of applying to the matters In
the arrhieves prior to 190; the same meth
ods of Indexing as are employed In current
work. There are some 2.000 letters received
Under the old rules of the department
ths bulk of Its correspondence was carried
on by the diplomatic and consular bureaus.
Under later rules geographical divisions
have been made. A far eastern bureau
was established, and all political matters
relating to the far east were handled by
It, whether of diplomatic or of consular
origin. So successful was the experiment
that a bureau dealing with I.atlu-Amcrt-can
subjects, another concerning western
European subjects, and still another deal
ing with near eastern matters hsve been
established. These give opportunity for
highly specialized work. The same method
Is employed in the classification of the
files and in the Index work. One set of
employes has charge of the flies of Latin
American matters, another set of workers
handle far eastern subjects, and so on.
There are two principal divisions of the
filing system. One part Is known ss the
major file and the other as the minor file.
To the major file are referred all matters
of first Importance the things which come
up frequently In the course of the transac
tion of publlo business. Each transaction
is given a serial number and a following
number for example, 792-3. The TH2 Is the
number of Identification, while the S sig
nifies that It is the third communication In
the correspondence under that serial num
ber. One of the rules of the department
says that every paper received or sent by
the department shall be Indexed, "excepting
acknowledgments, crank letters, popular
communications on such subjects as Niag
ara Falls, The Congo, etc." As there are
hundreds of crank letters received every
week It Is well for the public treasury that
no arrangement has been made for index
Home people complain about the lack of
application of modern business methods to
the various departments of the government.
It is true that Uncle Sam Is slow in adopt
ing new ideas, but there Is a good reason
for not being hasty In such matters. The
records of the governmental offices are so
voluminous that to rush forward and adopt
every new and unproved innovation would
be suicidal. The, government printing of
fice tiled It with the audit system, thereby
sinking hundreds of Thousands of dollars
and precipitating a scandal. Any system
of record keeping that can be adopted
safely must be far bej,otul the experimental
stage. When It Is adopted, however, no
where else Is It made more thorough than
by the government.
The excellent results that have been se
cured from the State department card In
dex system are well known to the members
of the cabinet. It Is expected to serve as
a model for the various departments in the
introduction of business methods In the
government service. Many of the branches
of the government have card index sys
tems of greater or less extent, but It Is
plain that with letters and other matters
which must be Indexed coming In by the
ten of thousands, changes must be made
gradually and carefully. It Is probable that
within the next few years the card Index
system will be In vogue In every depart
ment of the government, and that the older
system of record-keeping will be banished.
As a labor-saver and efficiency promoter,
the business world has no device superior
to the card Index, and In the State depart
ment it has reached Its highest note of use

Tlfty years Michael Walsh remained es
tranged from his brothers and sister and
for a half century, too. thry did not even
know his whereabouts. In comparatively
recent time he died, leaving a fortune of
more than 1100.000, and this money will In
all likelihood go to th brothers and sister
who had not heard of him In all this time.
Michael Walsh had a quarrel In the fam
ily home In Ireland when he waa Just a
broth of a boy and he ran away to Amer
ica In the year 1861. He went west, stopped
in Omaha a little while and thn set out
for the western part of the state. Most of
his life lie-pased In Aurora, He got Into
the cattle business, made money and
bought land. He prospered In business all
his life and when he died In May. 1907. he
left land worth at least $100,009.

Walsh had not married. He had no
known relatives and he left no will. The
state was put Into the hands of an admin
istrator and It Is there today. News of the
unclaimed fortune spread over the country
and some second cousins In Ireland applied
for the property.
Since then a New York attorney. E. M.
Tunnlcllffe, has located two men, Luke
and John Walsh, who are said to be half
brothers of Michael Walsh. They are resi
dents of New York and their sister, Mrs.
Catherine Walsh Flaherty, lives In Ireland
in behslf of these three heirs the law
firm of Baxter Van Duser. has filed a
petition which will be called up for hearing
at Aurora Mrch 28. If the evidences of
relationship are well established and there
is :'ald to be plenty of such evidence, the
second cousin claimants will lose entirely.

Mrs. Mary Hike of South Omaha, whose
husband got drunk on whisky bought at
the saloon of H. H. King of that city, and.
while under the Influence of this same
whisky, commltteed an act of burglary,
which landed him In the penitentiary for
two years, has obtained a verdict for dam
ages In the sum of $1,500 against King.
The case was tried in district court be
fore Judge Kennedy. The Jury reached a
verdict Saturday night at 9:30, and It was
read the first thing Monday morning.
Mrs. Hike has sued for $10,000. The fact
that she won at all Is unusual In the light
of other such cases In the district court
of Douglas county.
While deliberating, the Jury sent word In
to Judge Kennedy, asking if It could find
a verdict for money to be held In trust for
the children of Mr. and Mrs. Hike, but th
court declined to answer the remarkable

their demands upon the manufacturers for

WITHNELL FOR FIRE ZONE
City Building Inspector Outlines an
Extension of Limits.
WOULD ESTABLISH VARIOUS LINES
Reanlatlons for Bnlldln; la Princi
pal Pnrt of City Should Be Kept
More Strict Than In the
Inquiry brings out 'the fact that extension
of th fire limits of Omaha has been given
some consideration by City Building In
spector Wlthnell, but the city councllmen
now serving have never had the matter
up, except where some citizen desired to
secure exemption from the requirements of
the existing ordinance,
Mr. Wlthnell thinks the fire limits as
they exist at present could be wisely ex
tended, but not with the tame requirements
to the outer limits of any extension that
may be made.
"In a good many cities they have zones,"
said Mr. Wlthnell. "Within the fire limits
proper, say as now established In this city,
or possibly somewhat enlarged, the require
ments should remain as stringent as they
are now. or possibly call for all fire-proof
construction. Beyond this we should have
another xone, within which the require
ments might be modified to a certain de
gree, and still work a great improvement
In the character of . the buildings to be
"Then the outlying sections that are
being so rapidly built up might be Included
In a third sone, with sufficient safeguards
provided so ss to call for safe and eanlUrv
construction In every case where a permit
Is Issued. This scheme seems to me most
desirable for Omaha at this time, and
some such plan cannot be worked out and
adopted any too soon."
Councllmen Berka and Davis both ex
pressed themselves as favoring any plan
that may be presented which will assist
In making a better condition In the new
construction now going on and promised,
and It Is believed they express the views
of practically all their colleagues.
M'GOVERN HAS BILL TO MAKE
RAILROADS CLEAN STREETS
Ordinance Contemplates Forctna;
Companies to Remove Dirt for
Use of Thoroughfares.
Councilman McQovern probably will In
troduce an ordinance at the meeting of the
city council Tuesday evening to compel
railroad companies enjoying privileges In
the streets to keep clean the parts of thor
oughfares on which they have tracks.
If the ordinance can legally be mad to
cover the parts of streets and alleys on
which tracks already have been placed It
will be drawn that way. If this cannot be
done, the new measure will be made to
apply to all part of the public property
on which track may hereafter be laid.
Street Commissioner Flynn has been com
plaining for a long time that the loading
and unloading of cars on service tracks In
the streets and alley creates a filthy con
dition, especially In th spring and fall.
"Right now you will find places wheie
tracks occupy the streets that are covered
with dirt from the cars and loading wag
ons to ths depth of a foot or more. It
accumulates a little at a time and event
ually piles up so that It requires a special
crew to clean the stuff away. Surely If
the city gives the companies and their
customers the right to us publlo streets
and alleys for their own convenience, the
people thus favored should engage to keep
clean the sections thny use. An ordinance
to compel them to do so is badly needed.
