"I never saw a more absolutely rotten

Mr. Ryder was much pleased with the
tonditions of the majority of the ln
lependent slaughter houses. With Dr.

ahich he expected to find unsanitary
:onditlons. Instead he found one of the
leanest, most careful houses In the dis

efiised to keep the building in repair
tnd that he had purchased 'land nearby

Be Built at Once
Missouri Pacific and Union Pacific
railroads and the Union Stock Tards
company won thair F street viaduct fight
against the city of South Omaha before
Judge A. C. Troup in the equity division
of the district court, the city practically
agreeing to a compromise on a basis pro
posed by the roads and the Stock Tards
company. Judge Troup issued a per
emptory writ of mandamus commanding
the defendants to build the viaduct and
the defendants Indicated they will pro
ceed without further contest.
An alternative writ commanding the
construction of the viaduct over F
street at Twenty-eighth street was issued
in 1910, but the roads and the Stock
Yards company refused and the court
proceedings stopped while negotiations
for compromise were in progress. The
defendants were willing to build a via
duct strong enough for ordinary traffic
and the 5,000-ton roller test,, but were
unwill'ng to build a structure strong
enough for street car traffic, .which the
city contended might be necessary at
soma future time.

structure for street car traffic.

MANY COMPLAINTS HEARD
More Than Five Hundred Filed Be
fore Board of Equalization.
COURT HOUSE UPKEEP TfiORE
No Complaints ot Large Banlneaja
Concerns Have Vet Been Filed
Before the Board Few
More than 500 complaints of alleged ex
cessive valuation of property lor tax as
sessment purposes were filed -with the
County Board of Equalization, but the
board manifested but little tendency to
treat the complaints with favor. An
anticipated increase of $26,000 a year in
the cost of maintenance of the county
building when the county moves Into the
new building is the principal reason for
the disposition of the board to "stand
pat" on the county assessor's valuations
in most cases.
Twenty-five cases were taken up by the
board and with the exception of a few
Instances reductions were refused. No
complains of large business concerns yet
have been filed.
Operation of five elevators, employment
of more Janitors and use of more lights
are among tha Items which will mean In
creased cost when the, county occupies
its new building.
