of th cominc lKlslature nvt and organ-
lied last n!ht. Justlr of th Pear P.
'. CaJdarll tu elected chairman and M.
McCartr s?rrtry. After organization
everal members offered suggestions a to
the work of the committee. J. B. Watktn
thought the city should g"t poaer and
have authority to raise all the funds neces
sary for Its needs. Ha also wan of opinion
that the e-retary of tne school board
should be elected by the people at large
and that the member of that hoard as
well as all thn city officials should have
longer terms of office than at present.
"They hae." said Mr. Watklns. "scarcely
time to get acquainted with their duties
hen there Is another t!"tlon."
C E. Starr was of the view that no
matter bow the charter was revised the
law should be enforced. They wanted all
the fire protection they could get. "The
funds should be Increased." he said, "to
give us mors policemen and firemen, but
care should be exercised In selecting the
Rudolph Techout. president of the school
board, agreed Kith the suggestion that the
secretary of that body should be elected
at large and Tax Commissioner Fitzgerald
said that the growing nds of the city
required a largT assessment roll. This
view was also taken by City Clerk Good.
Secretary MeCarty thought that the park
board shoi.ld have sole control of the
rorks and boulevards and have control of
the expenditure of Its funds.
It having been decided that the chair
man should appoint an executive com
mittee of five, the committee adjourned.

Water Company's Ordlnaare.
City Attorney Murphy das handed out
Ms opinion on the application for an
amended ordinance sought by the South
Omaha Water company which acquired the
erdlnanoe originally granted John McShane
for the purposb of supplying the stock
arda and -adjacent district with water.
The legal department states that the rights
to be granted under the ordinance would
In effect -be franchise rights and that,
therefore, the ordinance and the procedure
relative to Its pasKage ought to conform
to the charter provisions relative to the
granting of a franchise.
The city attorney further advises that an
ordinance of this character, granting as It
docs valuable rights and privileges to In
dividuals, should contain proper limitations
and restrictions and definite provision
tcUWJvw t ULCrlghu effected thereby. .
"This department"" continues the opin
ion "at this time Is unaware, nor has It
l cen provided with information aa to who
constitute the PoMhr Omaha Water com
pany, and It suggests that such Interested
persons requesting such privileges might
consult wtlh your legal department relative
to these suggestions, and it might be that
some of theso objections could be obviated.
and the project placed upon such a proper
basis that your nonoraoie ooay wvuia oe

The city attorney explains that under the
city charter a franchise cannot be granted
for a longer period than ten years and that
It hi aeventeen years since the ordinance
was granted to Mr. McHhane,
One of Ihose Interested In the proposition
seen yesterday afternoon pointed out that
the water company did not desire right
to supply the city generally t;n water.
All they wanted waa the opportunity of
Living pipes from the river to the stock
ards district, where, a reaervolr, or reser

stock yards and the packing houses, if they

JANUARY 18 TO 28, 1911.
Nearly four years ago the United States Department of Agriculture introduced
a small amount of black winter Emmer into this country to be divided among
the leading agricultural scientists of the United States.
Among others a small amount was received by Prof. B. C . Buffum of AVorland, Wyoming.
Prof. Buffum Added Millions to the Vealth of the West
by using the small fraction given him to produce a new grain which is the heaviest yielding small grain now
grown, and the most valuable of this class of crops for stock feeding purposes.
It is better than oats for horses and ranks with corn for fattening sheep or cattle.
It will produce more feed per acre than corn and can be grown at much less cost.
Come, Hear Prof. Buffum Tell About His Vonderful Creation
He will lecture at the Land Show every day it is in existence and his story will
be of great interest to every one interested in the welfare of the west,
