OMAHA, March 8,-To the Editor of The
Beei With 'regard to the proposed Ineln-
erator bonds. It aeems to me that the issue
as put to the voters In its present form is
most Indefinite and uncertain, to say the
least Whenever a large business house
contemplates tho erection of say afactory.
It Is usually customary to draw up some
kind ot plana or at least a rough sketch
of the proposed erection, and then to de
cide whether the expenditure would bo
warranted and feasible.
A short time ago, while I was in JM-
rope, I noticed In The Bee I was re
ceiving from home, that Omaha waa ex
periencing some .difficulty with the dis
posal of garbage. Thinking the city gov
ernment might be Interested In how tther
cities had solved the question, I Octet-
mined to Investigate and see If the ex
perience of Europe oould not Im put t
use In Omaha. Through my noiltlon nf
American vice and deputy consul nt Bar
men, CA'tirany, and the courtesy of City
Building Inspector Fried, I waa person
ntly conducted through the Inclnerailnc
plant at Barmen and given a full tx-
ptaiiutlcn of the while garbage disposal
Barmen numbers 172,000 Inhabitants and
Its Incinerator Is considered the most sat
lafactory In all Germany. It was built
only after experts had Investigated ell the
systems In use on the continent and
England, and cost the city (130.000, with
out the land, the latter already belonging
to the municipality. The Barmen plant la
extremely economical, the garbage being
Its oVn and only fuel, and being forced
to burn by a powerful and unique blast
system. From the burned garbage and
refuse an excellent quality of building

electricity during the year, which Is sold
to the municipal electric light works at

estimates as to the cost of the plant Its
maintenance, and the revenue gathered

ot one of the board members whether thla
