TODAY'S SPECIAL ELECTION
Omaha voters are called on to register their verdict in a special
election tomorrow on four propositions. Unfortunately, little of the
discussion has been on the merits, so that a decision looking exclu
sively to the city's welfare and free from "personal grievances and
grudges" is almost despaired of.
The first proposition contemplates the issue of bonds to build an
inoinerator plant for garbage disposal. Possibly the details should
have been worked out first, although the bonds need not be issued
even if voted unless an acceptable plan is devised. Defeat -of the
bonds will leave the city just where it is paying out over $30,000
a year to collect garbage for free delivery to a favored hog-feeding
concern that formerly paid the expense of collection itself.
The second proposition calls for $250,000 bonds to acquire the
Auditorium, for which a price of $200,000 is fixed, the remainder to
be used for completing and improving the building. This is th
simple question whether Omaha wishes to have a big convention hall
suitable for publio purposes at it command. If these bonds are de
feated no one will have any right to protest against the conversion of
the Audit&ium to private uses.
.The third proposition involves ratification of the home rule char
ter. Adoption will vest complete control of. every branch of the city
government in the people of Omaha, while rejection will continue
us under the present made-in-Lincoln charter and subject of period
ical long distance legislative charter tinkering.
The fourth proposition is an initiative ordinance requiring the
street railway company to sell seven tickets for a quarter, i. e., to
carry passengers at a fraction over three and one-half cents per
ride, notwithstanding the company's Bhowing that it costs more than
four and one-half cents per passenger for labor, operating expenses
and fixed charges exclusive of any return to stockholders. It . is
agreed by both advocates and opponents that, adoption would be
equivalent to buying a law suit of doubtful outcome.
