After a careful examination of the
house records and senate file pertaining
to the amendments added to the city
charter by the last legislature, the office
of the city attorney will probably render
a favorable decision as to their validity
at the regular meeting of the city coun
cil next Monday night.
This waa the statement given out last
night by the legal department after th
return of Assistant City Attorney Sam
Winters from Lincoln, where he had
gone to Investigate thoroughly the history
of the passage of senate file No. 83, as
contained In the original records at the

office will have a wide effect upon the
plans of the prevent municipal adminis
tration, which for some time has been
marking time awaiting some definite set
tlement of the question raised as to the
validity of the amendments.
According to Assistant City Attorney
8am Winters, who. together with E. E. E.
Rldgeway, spent yesterday In Lincoln go
ing over the records, there is no doubt
to the legal passage of senate tils
No. K, which has for some time been In
dispute. It was urged that the housj
bill as returned to the senate was an
amended copy of senate tile No. at.
which never received the approval of th
senate after its amendment by the house,
This, according to Winters, Is clearly
controverted by a marginal note made by
the senate clerk upon the amended docu.
ment In which the concurrence of the
senate Is recorded. A misunderstanding,
possibly due to a clerical or typographical
', made the record to reed that sen'
ate file No. tl, aa amended, had been
passed by the senate Instead of senate
file No. M. Both files were Introduced,
hut senate Ole No. M. It Is understood,
wss returned from the house unamended
by that body. The record, however, can
not be quoted against the legal passage
at the file, according to attorneys, ex
cept where It shows affirmatively that
sach a file or bill has not been passed,
That the opinion of the legal depart'
ment will be received with acclamation
by the administration and by the con
tractors and those Interested In projected
publlo developments Is admitted on all
sides. Owing to the doubt cast upon the
validity of the amendments public work
has been threatened and It was said that
approximately $250,000 of work has been
at a sundstill. How the Isbor clause will
be remedied finally can only be surmised.
but It Is said that this will not now pre
vent the further progress of street grad-
ing and paving.
Among the city employes the favorable
finding of the city attorney's office will
be especially welcome because of the
additional pay that wss Involved In the
question. Had the file been found Invalid
the recurrence of the old charter law
would have meant a loss of psy to many
Twenty More Llreaeee.
Continuing their strenuous work the
Fire and Police board yesterday allowed
twenty lkiuor licenses additional to the
thirty-five granted on the day previous,
This makes In all fifty-five licenses Issued
for the current year. There are still
about thirty applicants awaiting the per
mission of the board to reopen their sa
loons. Of this last number, It la said
some have given up hops of providing
proper bond and will ask for ths return
of their license fee.
Members of the board hsve stated that
nearly all the applicants to whom licenses
bars been Issued hava provided surety
bonds. In some cases, however, personal
bonds hava been accepted. The board
says that the personal bonds accepted
are lncontestlbly good.
A ray of hope was waved yesterday
before the hopeless gase of those who
have been unable to procure a proper
security bond when the rumor of a new
local bonding company was circulated.
Investigation of the rumor revealed a

Tinners on Strike
For Wage Increase
Eighty union tinners are out on strike
in Omaha because the master craftsmen
refused to treat with them In their de
mand for an advance from 40 to i cents
an hour. The walkout dates from the
first of the month.
More than thirty days ago the Brother
hood of Sheet Metal Workers' local No. 1
msde a demand on their employers for
an Increase In pay and a half-day off on
Saturdays throughout the entire year.
Under the old working schedule a half
holiday was granted at week-ends during
eight months of the year.
The masters consented to make the
half-holiday concession, but refused to
listen to the demand for an Increase In
pay. The Journeymen gave them until
Msy 1 to consider the matter, but they
did not give In and the workmen packed
up their tools. Only two members of the
entire local brotherhood refused to go
'We have not made an unreasonable
demand upon the masters." declared
Secretary L. A. Kofroa at the sheet metal
workers' headquarters In the Washing
ton block. "Ours la the only union In
the city that la getting lees than M cents
an hour, and with the cost of living In
creasing all the time we are entitled to
"We notified the masters early enough
for them to figure an Increased wage in
their spring bids on contracts, and they
would not hava bean out anything it they
had given ua an advance of Vi cents an
hour. The only condition on which they
would make the halt-holiday concession
was that we sign a contract to work for
the preeent wage of 40 cents for two
years. This waa turned down promptly,
for there is no tailing how high ths cost
of living will go within that time."
