MAYOR PULLS FOR HOME RULE ;
ALLIANCE OFFICERS MEETSBE
Douglas County Delegates
Should Work for It.
AGAINST THE NEW WATER BILL
XVy-drr Jnjn City Cnmrnlnaton Shotilii
JInvc Povrcr In lmnc Orllfl
cnlca of Inrlelitrdncoa for
Mayor Dahlman hns Issued a chnlleflke
fa the Douglas county delegation In tlio
state legislature. It they do not work for
repeal or pnssnco of laws that will iur
ther home rule he will personally take
the stump against them at the next elec
tion and "help send a new delegation
"Such laws as the one proposed by the
ratr commissioner, enlarging the waltr
district and giving the Water board al
Mtrary power to fix rates, the Hlooumli,
the Sackctt and the Albert lnws should
Tocelve no support from Douglas county "
ha said, "and the water district bill
should be killed forthwith and the other
laws should be repealed.
' If home rule tneBns anything to us. '
said the mayor to the city commissioners,
"it means that the Douglas county rep
resentatives should not Interfere by pass
ing slate laws that will violate the pollcv
of home rule and render the constitutional
amendment granting cities of over M)
the right to govern themselves void.
"And lot me say here that the DougUa
eountr representatives who oppose home
rule will bo opposed by me when they
eome up for election again and a new
delegate will take the place of each mem
ber of the delegation wbo Is now Inimical
to home rule."
City commissioners discussed some of
the needs of the city which ought to be
written Into the new charter when the
charter committee meets.
Police Commissioners ltyder said he
luul a bill giving the city commission
power to Issue certificates of indebted
ness. He said tho funds committee of the
Commercial club had announced that they
would oppose such a bill.
TVe ought to have that power,"
Mr. ltyder. "All cities now under com
mission government do have It Wo can
not build a pollen station or a workhouse
without on election unless we havo the
power to issue bonds."
To ft limited degree this authority Is
now pogsessfd by the commission, as they
may Issue sewer and street Improvement
bonds, although bonds for park Improve
ments must go before the people. Mayor
Dahlman said he believed when' the new
charter was written that such questions
oould be satisfactorily settled.

"If there was a profit In the water
