Fiscal Center Stumbling Block.
AFFECTS BUYERS OF BONDS
Hnstrrn Pnrchnser Object in the
Chsime nml Tlirer-I)ny Delay
Knrti inhered by Trnnsfer
from Xrw A'orU City.
Becnuso tho last legislature passed a
law making Lincoln the fiscal agency for
Omaha, thereby incurring a delay of
thre days and the loss of Interest and
exchange. Now York bond buyers do not
bid as they onco did for Omaha bonds,
according to a statement issued by City
Commissioner Dan B. Butler of the de
portment of finances and accounts, who
objects to the fiscal agency being trans
ferred from New York to Lincoln.
Further, tho city commissioner objects
to tho lato legislature's law giving tho
county clerk of this county 10 cents for
each bond registered and 25 cents for each
"This law. pawed to pad the fees of the
county clerk, has forced us to pay out
as high as $900 in fees tn tho county clerk
In one batch,'' SRld Butler. "We will ask
tho leglslaturn to repeat this law and to
nlso repeal tho law making Lincoln the
fiscal agency of this city."
Commissioner Butler will also petition
the next legislature to pass a law exempt
ing from taxation Omaha bonds held In
this state. This, ho says. Ib to encourage
Investments In home city bonds.
Tho commissioner will nlso ask that
tho plan of assessment be changed so
that tho result will show "a fair cash
valuo Instead of one-fifth."
lteninK for I'hnnitrs.
Reasons why these chnnges are neces
sary are set forth by Commissioner But
ler In a statement as follows:
Bonded Indebtedness included In 5 per
cent statute limitation:
Paving (Intersection) $ 249,000
Renewal paving 573,000
Rcnowal sower 770.000
Total $ 3.S15.000
Bonded indebtedness ex
cluded from 5 per cent statute
Funding $ 500,000
Enplno house 230,000
City hnll renewal 125,000
Funding renewal 95,000
Fire engine houso re
Public library renewal.. 100,000
Park renewal .' 400,000
Special assessment re
newal 1,210.000- 10,416,000
Grand total $13,770,000
"As tho abovo tabulation shows, the
city bonded debt, covered by 5 per cent
statute limitation, nmounted to $3,355,000.
"Actual city property valuation for 1914
tax levy, $181,993,015; d per cent, $9,099,050.75.
Limit Not Reached.
"The above figures show that tho limit
of bonded indebtedness of the city of
Omaha over-reaches tho present debt by
$5,754, C50.75. Consequently we have a long
way to go before reaching tho limit, which
limit wo aro satisfied wo shall never
reach. In order to prove our statement,
we quoto a portion of tho Nebraska
statutes covering Omaha's bonded debt:
"Chapter 46 Artlclo 4383, Section 2S1.
'Limitation of Bond Issue. The bonded
Indebtedness of the city exclusive of dis
trict grading bonds, district improvement
bonds, public library bonds, renewal
bonds, bonds Issued for the purposo of
funding or taking up and making pay
ments of tho floating indebtedness nnd
liabilities of the city, or bonds for the
erection or purchase of a city hall, audi
torium or fire engine houses, or the con
struction or purchase, or for the con
struction and maintenance of subways
nnd conduits, or for park purposes, or
for tho purchase, construction or appro
priation of gas works, water works, elec
tric light plants or power plants, shall
not at any time exceed in the aggrcgato
5 per cent of the actual value of the tax
able property within the corporate limits
of the city, such actual value "to bo de
termined by reference to the assessment
of property In such city."
"The above statement speaks for itself
nnd further explanation is unnecessary.
Wo admit that the present system could
be modified to our advantage, but rules
laid down by the last legislature have
tied our hands to such an extent that
bonds offered for sale now find very few
prospective buyers, for the following rea
sons: "First, fiscal agency having been trans
ferred from New York to Lincoln, Neb.
"Bond houses which havo heretoforo
bid and purchased our loans (at a pre
mtum) now stato that the fact of tho
principal and Interest being payable at a
place which would entail a loss of three
days' interest and exchange, makes It
hard for them to find a ready market.
VNo fund In existence for the redemp
tion of the principal of general bonds.
"Another feature is that our bonds aro
"An analysis of our bonded debt dis
closes the fact that about 62 per cent Is
composed of renewals.
Objections to Small Bonds.
"As to making our bonds In smaller de
nominations and offering at popular sub
scription, the following objections could

2. Under-subscrlptlon might result In
leaving a broken lot on hand and which
might not be readily disposed of.

Further, an opinion as to thn leirni Ki

by the city at a cost of from $500 to $1,000,

Wolf Has Lease
On Midland Hotel
Persistent rumor, neither affirmed nor
denied by the Interested parties. Is to
the effect that a syndicate of Omaha real
estate men are negotiating for a long
time lease on the Myers-Dillon corner at
Sixteenth and Farnam streets.
Coming on the heels of numerous other
important real estate deals, Including the
sale of the new gTaln exchange slto, the
leaao for ninety-nine years of the S. S.
Curtis corner at Eighteenth and Harney
streets to Harry A. Wolf for a family
hotel, and the lease of the Midland hotel
building to Mr. Wolf for twenty years,
the lease of Sixteenth and Douglas
streets to J. L. Kennedy, the proposed
leaoe of the Myers-Dillon corner Indi
cates a gratifying situation among local
real estate men In regard to the future
of downtown property.
Mr. Wolf's two leases were recorded
Friday, tho Midland hotel lease not hav
ing been made public before that time.
He Is a one-fourth owner of the hotel
building, and secured a lease of the other

Fonrteen, With a cast Including fifty-four of Its
members, lif an elaborate staging and
costuming, the class of 1911 of the
Omaha High school will make an am
bitious effort In presenting Hester's dram
atization of Majors' popular novel, "When
Knighthood Waa in Flowor," Friday
evening, at the Brandeia theater.
Since the first senior class play, pre
sented four years ago, the custom has
grown In favor both with tho general
public and with the graduating class.
H Is not only an expression of class
spirit, but also a means of raising money
by which a class memorial may bo loft
to tho school. Tablets and pictures have
thus been added to the valuable collec
tion of tho high school.
The ronlantlo charm of "When Knight
hood Was In Flower," the enterprise of
the class presenting the play, the talent
of the leading performers point to an
amateur performance of unusual promise.
Sceno In ICiikIIsU Court.
The scene Is laid at tho English court
In the time of Henry VIII, and later at
the French court. Tho plot centers about
the love affair between Brandon, captain
of the Royal Guard nnd favorite of Henry
VIII, and Princess Mary, tho very beau

Disobedient to her brother's command
to wed Louis, the old French king, Mary
