Radical changes looking toward econ

mlssloners. Plans are being made, need
les of political machine consequence, to
abolish and consolidate offices, cut down
the number of men employed In depart
ments and Install a new dispensation that
will decrease the expense of the admin
istration without Impairing its efficiency.
It is probable the office of license in
spector will be abolished and the work
now under the license inspector's super
vision turned over to the ctty clerk, who
now collects many licenses. This would
tlo away with the Inspector as well as
Nurmruu.; applicants for tlie office of
building inspector may result in C H.
Witnnell, fire protection and water sup
ply commissioner, handling that work
himself for the remainder of the year.
The office of building inspector, the city
electrician's office and the office of
boiler Inspector will be consolidated and
put under the supervision of one com
missioner. Inspectors In the city engineer's office
will also feel the pinch of an econom
ics! administration. Intentions now are
to cut down the number to bare neces
sity. Other appointees In other depart
ments who have been serving principally
as a "cog" in the political machine, will

A change may be made In the health
department Prominent Omaha physicians
have signified a willingness to devote
a week of their services occasionally to
the city. The city emergency hospital
may be taken out of the Jurisdiction of
the health commissioner and placed la
charge of a competent man.
Emergency cases, In event of the change,
would b the only cases cared for at the
emergency hospital When a physician
was needed ha would be called and ar
rangements for quick response would be
made, so that service would be as effi
cient as It would be if a corps of doctors
was on the job all the time. The health
commissioner would devote bis entire time
to the general health of the city and the
routine of the office.
Commissioners have also derided to
strictly enforce the hours of labor rules.
Employes must be on the Job at a

Dr. O. R. Toung, city veterinarian, has

The first gusher In the band Creek oi:
producing section of Wyoming was struck
last Friday at a depth of a little less
than U0O feet. The well Is producing
LOO barrels of oil per day. While the
flow Is not under control the oil Is being
saved by being run oft Into a reservoir.
The gusher wsa struck by the Mldwrn
OH company and Is on a school section
leased from the state of Wyoming, forty
miles northwest of Casper. Being close
to the pipe line already constructed by
the Midwest company It will be plpei
dowa to Casper and to the refineries
there. Tbe flow of the new well Is steady
and shows no signs of falling of.

Inspired by the success that has -
oompairied the drilling during the last
few months and the bringing In of tli"
new well, the oil producers of central
Wyoming have called a convention of
oil men at Casper for May a and 3. at
which time ateps will be taken looking
to ths extension of the oil Industries.
Having- faith In the Wyoming oil for
fuel purposes the Northwestern road hns
equipped thirty-six of Its engines work
ing west of Norfolk with oil burners awl
completed the construction of s larc-r
quantity .of tsnkage there. It al.-o hi,
fifteen new tank cars, with a capacity
of W.O0S gallons of oil each, on the way
to go Into the service.
Of all of the fifty-seven engines ud
on the Northwestern west of Omaha not
one la burning coal shipped from east '
the Missouri river. Those that are
using oil are burning coal from the Wyo
ming fields. Plans are now being ma
tured for converting the engines east ot
Norfolk Into oil burners, snd probsulr
within ninety days every engine on in
line In Nebraska and Wyoming will be
using oil for fuel.
