City Not Liable
For the Negligent
Acts of Officers
The city Is not responsible for negli
gent acts of officers or employes engaged
In police duly.
This Is the opinion of City Attorney
John A. lllnc, given last night to the
Bourd of Fire and 1'ollcie Commissioner.
It was pecasioned by the claim against
the city for SuO damages alleged to have
boon sustained by Jacob Pas, commis
sioner of Harpy county, when ho was
struck by tho police emergency automo
bllo In front of tho Huir.ntt'.on Cepot the
night of Iecember S.
The city attorney contends that em
ployes and officers of the police depart
ment aro engaged In Kovernmental duty
and the city cannot legally be held re
sponsible for thulr shortcomings.
The pollcm board asked the city coun
cil to re-advertise for bids for thirty tar
paulins to be used by the new salvage
corps of the Omaha tire department. On
tha endorsement of the Kansas City fir
department officials, tarpaulin fourteen
fet fy fourteen, feet are the most serv
iceable and the board made the same
specifications for the new salvage corps.
Fifteen thousand dollars of the police
fund Is to be taken from Omaha building
and loan companies and Invested In pav
ing bonds. Uesotntlona to that effect
passed by the I'oilce Relief and Protec
tive association were concurred In by the
police board. The bond pay 4 1-10 per
cent, puyable efery six months, and
are due ;'n 193.1.
The commissioners appointed William
II. Jaaobson, who ha been on probation
at hose company No. 11, a member of
tha fire department. Frank W. Baker
was fined S3 for smoking cigarettes in
company quarters ami F. W. Morrow
was reprimanded for tardiness.
The board adjourned to meet this aft
ernoon when the protest of J. J. Ma
haney.agaiiist he renewal of slho, license,
pf Wick A Moore's saloon Will b heaed.
They Prefer Charges
and Prosecute Seives
With that Mint wistful look that can
be Imagined as on the face , of Oeorg
Washington when ho said "he did It with
his llttlo hatchet." Captains John Ertck-
son and I'atrtck Jiempsey appeared be-
lor th Hoard of Fir and J'olice Com
m.ssUmers last night ' as detenJiiiils
against their own charges.
Captain Krlckson of Hook and Ladder
company No. 1, charged himself with be-
Ins eight minutes lata December SI
against the rule and regulation of th
oniaha fire department."
He asked himself why he was late and
than told himself and tlie commissioners
tifat It was bevauao of a sick aiarm clock.
'Was It tho- first tlm you were late,"
he demandud of himself.
Yes," lie answered. "I have been on
th fit department fourteen years aud
this I my first offense."
Then followed the most relentless grill
ing and cross-examination a prosecutor
ever gav himself, but despite It all the
board dismissed hi charges.
Captain IVmpsey of Hoes company No,
14 admitted to himself that he had been
ill tho service of the Omaha fir depart
ment twcnty-flv yiars. II explained to
himself and the commissioners that It
was because of the street car service
that he was late for duty.
lie also was treed without a reprimand.

Early Viaduct Work
A delegation of cltlsens from south of
tho Klsvenlh street vladuot appeared be
fore th uommltte of The whole yester
day afternoon and requested action on
the, matter of allowing the railroads to
repair the viaduct ' . for " unrestricted
travel. The committee, consisting of
James P. Connolly, John O. brant. H. F.
Williams and I. D. Foster, reported that
a mass meeting had been held and the
cltlsens were unanimous In demanding
an early repair of th viaduct. Action
waa postponed until a report could be
secured from the city engineer.
Attorney Whlttaker for tha Union I'a
ctflo and Knglneer W. I llrayton were
present and a discussion of the advis
ability of repairing the viaduct waa held.
Mr. Williams advised the council to be
careful In whatever action was taken so
that the Interests of property holders
would b safeguarded. "A pot of paint,"
he said, "may be construed by th rail
road to mean repaira." Assistant City
Knglneer Campen explained what the
railroad had promised to du, which would
mean a reoonetructlon of the viaduc t on
more substantial principles, but would
still leave It Inadequate for unrestricted
travel several year hence.

to the verdict of the coroner's jury,
which yesterday afternoon exonerated
F.dward Francis McOratti, 610 Houth

scuffle that followed Stepsay dropped
dead. Th verdict came after a few
minutes' deliberation. McOrath. whom
the police had held pending the jury's
action, was released on recommendation
of the jury.

Notwithstanding tho renewal Issue of
IllO.SSO bonds was recently awarded to
flpoer & Co. 'of Chicago at a 4"
rata of Interest there Is considerable un
easiness among the city officials whether
the Chicago company will sign tho con
tract which was conditional upon tha ap
proval of the bond company's attorneys.
Sunday and part of Monday City Clerk
Frank Oood and his deputj, John Fennell,
worked like beavers In an attempt to
get out the transcript of the bond his
tory. The first draft was completed and
forwarded to the Chicago firm Monday
and word Is Impatiently expected whether
the transcripts were approved or not.
City officials who have talked with the
Chicago people echo the warnings of
disappointed bidders on the Issue and as
sert that Speer 4c Co. will not now accept
the bonds at 4li per cent.
In event of Hpeer s failure to accept the
banks of South Omaha will be called to
the fore to make good their verbal as
surance that they would at al! events
stand to protect the credit of the city.
The assurance of the local banks was
without doubt honest and sincere, but
legal lights and bankers begin to express
doubt as to tha legality of nuch ac
tion when taken by national banks. -
In an effort to clear the atmosphere of
doubt city, officials yesterday sent tele
