OMAHA, Jan. H.-To the Editor of Thi
Bee: Homo bald heads have been tellln
us that within 50 years the population
within a radius of 200 miles of Omahn
will be more than M.OOO.MW, nnd that
shortly from one-halt to two-thirds of
these millions will be In cities. If so
we may expect Omaha to be a city nt
U.000.000 to 20,000,000 (only at matter of '
Now we as citizens of Omaha ought to
lay our plans big enough and broad
enough so we might be able to facilitate
and nccommodatc the millions yet to
come. We should not waste our time in
dealing with trifles such as making a
Krent fuss about a few wiggle boned
Burlington clerks going to Chicago. ,i
half of them are bachelors and would
not ralso a family If they we're paid.
Neither should we consider the Audi
torium in connection with a now union
depot. Then we would bo better off
with the present buffalo head-like union
station with Its Jl.oO clock on Its fore
hand. Nay. the Commercial club ought
to cease using their club on the railroad
corporations trying to make them build
a new union depot up In the retail dis
trict of the city.
If you want anything out of corpora
tions you must put out some substantial
bait In tho shape of a few million dollar
bonds, also give them all tho streets and
alleys they want. In that way you muy
get a new depot the size you want nnd
where you want It. .Mlow me to suggest
a site for such a depot. Property laying
between Sixteenth and Twentieth slrrt?t
and between Capitol avenue and Cumlnc
street there we could have your J33.000.000
depot). West of tho dopot to Twentieth
street would be spnee enough for twenty
tn twenty-five tracks. Trains coming
over the new railroad bridge at Dodge
street would cattycorner over to Capitol
avenue anil Eighteenth street, then west
of the depot, making a clrclo or curve
north of Cuming street, coming back to
about Klghth and Dodgo streets; there
circle around to a point connecting with
the tracks of the Union Pacific and Bur
lington going west. Trains coming in
over the old Union Pacific bridge, over a
viaduct from the west approach of said
bridge to a point about Klghth and Dodge
streets; then circle around tho depot;
then back to the old tracks going west.
Trains coming over tho Kast Omaha
bridge could dp likewise they could en
ter on viaducts beginning north nnd west
of the Union Pacific shops to tho tracks
at Klghth and Dodge streets make It's
circle around the depot, then go on west,
etc. Trains froh tho north, south or west
could make the same circle and then go
Locating , the depot west of Sixteenth
street would necessitate the tunneling1
of Sixteenth street from about Dodge
street to a point north of Cunlng street.
Don't say a word: There have been
worse things dono In smaller towns, llko
New York City, hardly one-fourth the
also of our future 15.000,000 or 20,000,000

this arrangement, as parcel post could bo

After all these things are set In mo

would adopt a loop system, for .Instance,
como up Capitol avenue, turn south on
Eighteenth street, tunnel Eighteenth
street from about Dodge street to 8t
Mary's avenue, and then circle around
the center of town and connect with
ever' other line, etc. In the tunnel thero
should bo a station at every block, where
passengers could enter and be elevated
up into the million-dollar hotels and
opera houses and office buildings, yes.
even Into the new half-million dollar

Last, but not least, shoppers could

Benefit of Consolidation.
SOUTH OMAHA. Jan. 15. To the Edi
tor of The Bee: As regards this question
of consolidation or annexation, It seems
that the paramount question that con
fronts our perpetual officeholders, their
confereres and the unthinking citizen Is
as to how nutters will be so arranged
as not to disturb the power and prestige
of our political custodians dictators who
hnvo watched carefully over us for the
last quarter of a century without Inter
ruption. This is an era of odvanced ideas
nnd the progressive spirit of tho times
prompts people to iuvestlgato and ask
questions. Whllo I bellevo there Is nona
of the city officials of Omaha llko
Caesar's wife, however, Is not Omaha's
administration progressive In compari
son to south Omaha? The firemen have
n double shift, likewise the police havo
shorter hours. Education Is tho bulwark
of the nation and I desire to call atten
tion aa to how South Omaha's reform
School board raised the teachers' pay 12
cents per day. Formerly their pay was
Jl.U per day. Their pay now, after the
benevolent and generous raise, is at the
rat of $1.23 per day, figuring twelve
months to the year. Perhaps Miss
O'Reilly may visit South Omaha, and if
so, she will have an opportunity to make
somo revelations as regards wages In
"high and low places. I might add that
the school teachers, firemen and police
men in Omaha can retire on half pay
ntter a certain number of year.
It Mr Norris accepts a cabinet position
