OND ISSUE UP TO PEOPLE
toVote $10O,COO Bonds for New Fire
' Houses and Police Station.
ASKS TOICIPAI WOSKEOUSE
frart of Money to Be tTsed, if Ay Is
JUeft, to Eree Workfcos,
i -Walck Ryder Say W1U
. The first step toward carrying out the
plans of Commissioners Ryder and With
oell head of the police and fire depart
ments, was taken by the council yester
day mornlnf, when an ordinance author
Wng, the submission of a (VXm bond
Issue to a vote of the people was unani
tf this bond proposition carries at the
November election Commissioner Wlthnell
will be enabled to build two new fine
engine houses and make improvements
In other houses which he says Is very
aecessary. -: '
' With portion of the money Police
Commissioner Ryder intends, if possible,
to erect a new central police station and
arrange for a municipal workhouse where
prisoners could be profitably employed
nd turned loose at the expiration of their
lentences with money in their pockets.
Mr. Ryder has investigated municipal
workhouses in several cities and found
them self-supporting. He believes an
Institution he-re could be made to yield
Segregate Yoaic Offenders.
.'His plan Is to segregate the younger
sffenders from the old criminals, give all
irc-rk at which they could earn a small
sum above the expense of their keep and
let them out of jail with enough money
and clothes to save them from the pos
ilblllty of arrest for vagrancy.
Mr. Wlthnell says the bond Issue Is
necessary because the city is now paying
rent for one fire house alone that would
more than pay the interest on the bonds.
This Is the building at Eighteenth and
Harney streets, which is .costing the
municipality a large sum annually al
though It Is In poor repair.
Houses la Bad Repair ;
- Many firs houses, according to the-com-missioner
of fire protection and water
supply, oould stand several thousand
nollari worth of repairs. With the money
from the sale of these bonds the effi
ciency of the fire department would per
haps also be increased by the appoint
ment of more firemen and the purchase
tf additional fire-fighting apparatus.
i Prohibiting Signs
Over the Sidewalks
. An ordinance prohibiting erection of
very large electric- and other signs over
the sidewalks was passed by the city
council at an adjourned session yesterday
morning. This measure t makes It an of
fense punishable by heavy fine' to erect
unstable or unsightly signs on any build
inf. Police Commissioner Ryder had the or
dinance drafted. It is similar to the ordi
nance row in effect, but City Attorney
Rine said there was some doubt as to
whether the ordinance now in effect was
legally passed. a ,.
Thls new ordinance also regulates the
display of merchandise In cases othe
sidewalk, making it a misdemeanor to
obstruct business streets In such manner.
PUBLIC DRINKING CUP
:? IS IN FOR BANISHMENT
Another crusade against the public
Srinklng cup In Omaha Is to bo waged,
this time by the Red Cross committee of
the Nebraska Association of Graduate
Nurses, aided by the Omaha Visiting
Nurse association. A subcommittee com
posed of Miss Lillian Stuff of Omaha and
Mrs. E. C. Gillespie will Investigate all
publio schools to find out which have not
unitary bubbling fountains, and will re
port these to the health department, to
gether with a recommendation that foun
tains be Installed. The crusade was
planned at the meeting of the committee
at the Visiting Nurse dispensary.
'f 'nve were surprised to learn ' that the
sew wing of the high school has the old,
unsanitary tin cups," said Hiss Stuff.
. Four cases recovered from tuberculosa
were reported by Miss Lillian Stuff, head
of the Visiting Nurse dispensary, , Miss
Bluffs report covered the month from th
middle of August to the middle of Sep
Sixty-three people with Infectious an1
contagious diseases reported at the dis
pensary, ten were sent to hospitals, four,
teen are being cared for in their homes.
There ar fifty-one cases now reporting
, regularly at the dispensary, fifteen of
whom are children.

girls from 1 to years of age, accom
panied by six nurses, arrived from New
York over the Burlington Wednesday

city, gathered up by the Society for the
Friendless, which Is . annually sending
many children west It is a Catholic In
ututton that has been engaged in this
