'" for City Like Omaha,
"When a special committee of the Heal
Estate exchange reported at last week's
meeting that there were not over S00
vacant houses in Omaha, even tha real
state men themselves were surprised.
It waa a gratifying report to the ma
jority, but there are a few who are In
clined 43 think that 8C6 vacant houses are
too few for a city as large as Omaha,
and fear that It would not be good policy
to let the fact be known abroad. A grow
ing city needs a certain percentage of
"slack" In the way of vucant houses, to
provide for new arrivals in the city, and
06 vacant houses Is only about 8V4 per
cent of the total cumber of homes in
the city. However, moat members of the
exchange are Inclined to the oplnlQn that

The verbatim report of the committee
The committee which you appointed for
the purpose of investigating the number
of vacant houses In Omaha, after having
made a very careful census and study cc
conditions, beg to report the following:
The committee finds that in Omaha
proper, not including East Omaha, Dun
dee or the other suburbs, the number of
vacant houses will not exceed 8'.. For
the purpose of getting a better Idea of
how the emDtv houses are situated, the
committee has divided the city into' seven
districts, naming that part of the city
north of Locust street as district No. L
The total number of houses In that dls.
trict are eighty-one or 10 per cent of all
the empty houses In. the city.
That district lying between Locust and
Cuming streets, from Sixteenth to Thir
tieth streets, which Is the most densely
settled district in tho city of Omaha,
some lots being improved by threo or
four houses, has a total of 2C6 empty
houses or about 26 per cent of the tolul
number of empty houses.
f rum iocust to Cumins streets, west or
Thirtieth, we call district No. 3. In this
district there are eighty-four houses or
11 per cent of the total number.
I- rom Cuming to Ieavenworth, from
Sixteenth to Thirtieth streets comprises
our rooming house district and business
and Investment propositions. There are
123 houses or 18 per cent of the total-l
number in this district.
The district No. 5 Is from Cuming to
Leavenworth, west of Thirtieth street,
which Is the btn ton district of Omaha.
ThlB has elghty-clght houses empty or
11' per cent of the total.
District No. 6, south of Leavenworth
from Twenty-eighth east to the river, is
the district comprising a mixture of all
nations. There are lut) houses here or 13
per cent of all.
District No. 7 Is from Leavenworth
south and from Twenty-eighth strwt
west. This is the smallest district and
has ninety-seven houses vacant or 12 per
cent of all the number.
On an average the committee thinks
that the empty houses are about evenly
distributed throughout the city. In di
viding the houses Into sizes we find tho
small houses of three and four rooms are
13 per cent; all five-room cottagca are M
per cent of the while; six and seven
room houses are 38 per cent and eight and
nine-mom houses are Zi per cent; ten
room houses are 6 per cent.
Dividing the houses Into the several
prices we find that the houses that rent
up to J15 per month are 29 per cent of
the whole; from $15 to 135 houses are 10
per cent; from 125 to 135 houses are 21 H
per rent and over 135 houses are ' per
The committee received only 4S1 an
swers as to the kind and condition of the
houses and out of the 4M answers 215, or
44 per cent are new and 206, or 56 per cent
are old, which would show that in com
parison between the new and old houses
In the city they are about evenly divided.
Out of the 400 houses which we could find,
as to the class of buildings, 266 were
detached frame houses and 136 were brick
flats and 154 frame flats.
On the whole the committee finds that
we have not too many empty houses In
the city of Omaha and that the rentals
In Omaha proper are In a wholesome con
dition. There tre approximately fifty
active real estate agencies which handle
a substantial rental business. That would
give Omaha an average of sixteen houses
There are approximately 25,000 families
in Omaha, which means that there are
only 3Vi per cent t the total number of
Considering that there Is an average
of 2"W removals each month, each pros

advancing age. Mr. Scovern has owned
the property, which is on the north side
of Farnam, between . Twenty-first and
Twenty-second, with a frontage of eighty
eight feet, for twenty-five years. It is
now occupied by a flat building, in good

Chief of Police John Brlgfts says that
the InvestlKation of the charges Incrim
inating police officers Id holdup raids will
be most searching and thorough as far
as he Is concerned. The chief declared
that he waa awaiting the return of At
torney Dean Ringer from Lincoln In order
to proceed with the investigation. He
said he had understood Ringer was pos.
sessed of Information that would lead to
the Identification of the guilty party.
"If ny Investigation develops tha fact
that one of the officers of this depart
ment was guilty of such action,", said
the chief, "X will Immediately suspend
him and file charges with the Fire and
Police board. It la an outrage that such
conduct should be credited to a police of
ficer. It blackens the whole department
and shames the decent, honest members.
If such a thing exists there ought to be
not only dismissal, but criminal prosecu
tion." There was a rumor yesterday that the
men making the charges had been
escorted about the city for the purpose of
Identifying the guilty officers. The out
come of the tour was not made publla.
In the camp of the annexationists the
charges are bulng pushed and efforts are
belr.g mude to have County Attorney
James KiigllBti take tho matter up,

Yesterday It was reported that Jetter
had swung his club and that employes of
the brewery had held an annexation
meeting Thursday night at the brewery.
Whether Jetter himself had taken charge
of the matter could only be conjectured,
but the report of his disaffection from
the ranks of the antls was not unex
pected. It was the understanding that when
Jetter recently offered a compromise to
the city on the Thirtieth street paving
matter, the offer was in the nature of an
ultimatum. Jetter, besides being a heavy
property owner and taxpayer, controls a
number of saloons and his aid will bring
new courage and confidence Into the
ranks of tha annexationists.
In the anti-camp there was a report
that the north end of town was not solid
for the annexationists while the west L.

towards the consolidation group.
