AFFAIRS AT SOUTH OMAHA
Water Board Present, Bui that
Would Abrogate Contract.
CITY CLERK ON THE ttUI VIVE
Ulsitorers Illicit In Time ftnd TnUen
Action that Will Preseut Pay
ment, to City Council for
What was probably a carefully planned
coup, of the Omnha Water board to have
the city of South Omaha abrogate tho
old agroenent between It and, tho Omaha
Water company waa tiereatea yesmroay
by City Clerk Perry Wheeler's keen eye
for tho Interests of the tax payers. The
board presented a bill for hydrant
rental aggregating sotno 18,000. A Uttlo
figuring on the part of- the city
clerk and his deputy, Charles Kads,
brought out that the board was charging
for SIS hydrants, which Included the forty-
one annuity hydrants claimed by tho
tlty under the old franchise with the
Investigation of the Item showed that
hn Water board had Intentionally Ig
nored tho provision of tho old contract,
Ahlch allowed the city certain hydrants
rteo under the annuity clause of tho
contract. The exact amount of royalty
ald to tho city by tho old company
amounted to $3,M, that Is forty-one
jydrants, calculating that each hydrant
fented for $60. Under tho old contract
with tho water company the royalty paid
(he city for the franchise was taken out
m rtntal for th,e said forty-pne hydrants.
, However since the taking over of the
water company's affairs by the Omaha
Water board there has been a dispute
as to tho relation existing between the
board and the Maglo, City. The board
has held that tho city must come under
.the domination of tho Water board with
out any reference to the old franchise
granted by the city of South Omaha to
the water company. The city has main
tained that the Water board stands In
the same relation to It as did the defunct
water company, whose assets and -lia
bilities It accoptcd at the time of the
transfer of the property.
Olit Bnrirnln. llnonil.
in order to bind the bargain under
the old contrnct. Mayor lloctor some
months ago under the provisions ot the
old contrnct paid some US on this year's
account to the Water board. The sum
was accepted by the board without any
ado at the time. It was In fact an over
sight on their part. At any rate, when
Mayor lloctor and the council demanded
that the Water board live up to its con
tract and Install water mains and hy
drants as provided by the contract with
the city the board through Commissioner
n. D. Howell, sought to evade the ques
tion tinder various pretexts. Each pre
text, however, was successfully mat and
overcome and finally the board declared
that It could not do the work In the
Now comes the apparently bnrmltaa pre
sentation of the Water board's bll( for
hydrant rental, with the rental calculated
on US hydrants Instead of TIL Added to
thts Is the deduction of the IC3 paid re
cently on account by the city. It was a
neat Uttlo coup, but Clerk Wheeler did
some quick thinking and then used the
tejephon. Tho representative of the
Water board admitted that the hydrant
rental was calculated on 315 hydrants,
that is, all the hydrants ot the city, with
out any deduction for the royalty owed
the city on the franchise granted to the
defunct water company, predecessor to
the Water board.
"And tlto $421 paid on account under
the old contract and accepted as such by
the Water boardT" queried Clerk Wheeler.
"Oh, of course, that was just paid on
the whole annual account ot this year
without any reference to the old con
tract," was tho reply.
llut City Clark Wheeler directed that
the bill be not authorised. It will now be
up to the council and the city treasurer.
City Clerk Wheeler says he will hold the
bill up and will not issue the warrant,
wtUoh leaves the Water board Just where
It was before having the necessity of
going into court to show that It can ac
cept the bonus of the Omaha Water com
on Wall Street
pany without tho attendant onus as tho
Magic City holds.
In tho mcantimo tho city attorney will
bring suit to mandamus the Water board
to Install thn now hydrants and water
mains as prvulded In tho old contract and
ordered by tho city council some weeks

PROPOSE FOUR BUILDINGS
Forty .Ueiubera of the? Association
Conduct Meeting: Yesterday mid
Dlscnse Pinna for Proposed
An appropriation of $173,000 will bo usked
of the legislature for four new buildings
for tho Deaf Institute at Omaha by the
Nebraska Parents' Association for the
Promotion of Oral Instruction of the
Forty mombers of tho association, rep
resenting parties from all over tho state,
the parents of deaf pupils of the instituto,
met at the school yesterday afternoon
and canvassed the matter. Tho four build,
ings to bo asked for ore: A primary
building. 100,000; an advanced boys' build
ing, tSO.OOO; a power plant, $35,000; an In
dustrial building, 130,000.
State Architect Hurd Miller had beet
asked by tho association to make esti
mates on what tho various buildings
would cost, and these aro the figures as
he reported them to the association at
The parents are anxious to have the
primary building in order that It may
afford segregation to some extent for thje
new pupils coming In. This they contend
Is necessary in order to got the orat sys
tem Nitltfactorily established In ,the
school as provided by the last legisla
ture. Bo long as the new pupils are not
segregated from the older ones they ab
orb the sign language from the older
ones inoro rapidly than they do the oral
training from tho teachers, and this con
stitutes a drawback throughout their en
tiro course of Instruction, the parents nnd
The advanced boys' building Is desired
to take tho pliico of the present advanced
boys' cottage, or dormitory, which Is old
and which was cheaply built in the first
place. It is feared also that the old
building Is no longer sanitary.
Tho n$w power houso Is to take the
place ot the old one, which It Is claimed
Is Inadequate to the present needs. The
old ono olsd stands In what should natu
rally be the frorlt yard of the school,
facing Forty-fifth street. The new power
plant, It one is obtained, is desired In the
back yard, whero it normally belongs.
A new Industrial building, the parent
hold, Is absolutely necessary, aa the pres.
cut ono is not nearly sufficient to accom
modate the number of pupils who should
by all means havo an Industrial training,
in tho opinion ot the association.
