W. J, Connell Says Street Railway
Franchise Is Not Perpetual One
former Attorney for the Com
pany States His Views Be-
fore the Southwest
Improvement Club.
" President Fred Scliamel and Sec
retary F. ,V. Fitch invited Attorney
W. J. Connell to come before the
Southwest Improvement- club last
night to explain the status' of the
franchise of the Omaha & Council
Bluffs Street Railway company. The
club has been fighting "perpetual"
franchises for municipal corporations
and has now turned its attention to
the street railway company.
"As most of you know, for many
years I was attorney for the street
railway ' As you also know, my
resignation as such attorney was ten
dered and accepted about the first of
the present year. I am now a 'free
lance.' and 1 propose, during the
last decade of my legal career, to
represent the interests of the public
and to battle on the side of the in
jured ahd the oppressed in place of
fighting for the street railway. com
pany. "Had the knowledge I possess re
garding the franchise rights of the
street railway been acquired in con
nection with my services as at
torney for the company, I would re
frain from saying anything about
them. But; what I know regarding
these rights is entirely from or
dinances and other records and from
legal proceedings prior to the time
I entered the service of the street
railway. s
"In the early days of street rail
way litigation, I represented the old
Cable company, known as the 'two
streaks of rust," and with John D.
Howe made a successful fight agaipst
the present company and its claim
to the exclusive use of the streets of
Omaha.- I might also correctly add
that I am the original pioneer in the
prosecution of damage suits against
the street railway. And, it is a some
what interesting fact, that the first
personal injury suit I ever had against
the company, cuts quite a figure in the
franchise rights t of the company. I
refer to the suit of Mrs. Doolittle
against the old Omaha Horse -Car
Railroad company, reported in the
Seventh Nebraska reports, at page
481. Mrs. Doolittle was quite badly
injured by being thrown from a car
as she was in the act of alighting.
I commenced suit for her to recover
$5,000. i well remember the nature
and extent of her injuries by reason
of the account her husband gave of
them while a witness on the stand.
Mr. Doolittle was a machinist in the
Union Pacific shops. After asking
him his name and in what business
he was engaged, I asked him if he
saw his wife and made an examina
tion of her upon hiseturn home from
the machine shops on the day of her
injury, to which he replied that he
did. I then asked, 'what did you find
as the result of your examination?'
and he .answered, 'I found she had
two- ribs broken and one badly
sprung.' The result was, the jury
allowed $2,000 for each of the broken
ribs, and $1,000 far the 'sprung rib,'
thus giving her. the full sum we claim
ed of $5,000, and judicially establish
ing the value of fractured ribs at
$2,000 each and sprung ribs at $1,000.
After obtaining this verdict the next
thing was to collect it. . For the pur
pose of defeating Mrs. Doolittle in
the collection of her judgment and to
avoid other liabilities, the Omaha
Horse Railway company went out of
business and turned its entire as
sets over to a new corporation known
as the Omaha Street Railway com
pany. It is the franchise of the old
Horse Railroad company that the
present company now claims to hold
and also claims that such franchise
is a perpetual franchise. To secure
and hold this franchise the new com
pany was obliged to pay the judgment
of Mrs. Doolittle, amounting at the
time of payment to over $10,000."
No Foundation for Claim.
Mr. Connell contended that "the
claim of the street railway company
that it has an exclusive right to the
streets of Omaha or that. its franchise
is 'perpetual, is a claim utterly un
founded in fact or in law." .
: He quoted from the act which' was
passed by the legislature in 1867
granting to the Omaha Horse Rail
way company a fifty-year franchise.
."As will be observed," he continued,
"the term of the franchise is for fifty
years, from the first day of January,
1867. with the express provision that
at the end of fifty: years, to-wit:
January 1, 1917, the road andNjthcr
equipments should revert' to the city
of Omaha. Under this law and in
pursuance of its provisions the city
of Omaha, by its mayor and city
council, on the 28th day of October,
1868, passed an ordinance known as
Ordinance No. 166, granting to the
Omaha Horse Railway company the
right to construct and operate its
street railway tracks over and along
such streets in the city of Omaha as
the company might thereafter select
for that purpose. Under this ordin
ance and the legislative enactment re
ferred to, the Omaha llorse Railway
company proceeded to, construct its
tracks and to operate the same so
continued until about the year 1880
when for the purpose of evading Mrs.
Doolittle' s judgment and other just
liabilities, -its stockholders organized
a new company, known as the Oma
ha Street Railway company.
Again Reorganized,
- "Later on, it was again reorganized
under the name of the Omaha &
Council Bluffs Street Railway com
pany, but before this organization
could be perfected, it became appar
ent that to give it any right to the
.streets, of Omaha it. would have to
obtain an assignment of the old fran
chise rights of the Omaha Horse
Railway company. This assignment
it secured and in order, to make the
assignment of any value and secure
the benefits of the old Horse Rail
way company franchise, it was
obliged to pay the debts of the old
company, including the judgment of
Mrs. Doolittle. The new company
was then secure in the saddle with its
right to occupy the streets of Oma
ha until 1917.r'
; Speaking of the assignment of
other franchises to the new company
he said: "I know all about them and
I assert most positively they are noth
ing but a rope of sand, which will
give way at the very first test that
is made."
As to the so-called "Street Railway
Consolidation act" of 1899, permitting
two or more street railway companies
to pool their stock with "power to
hold in perpetuity the prop
erty, rights, powers and fran
chises converted upon said con
stituent companies," by which it is
claimed by the street railway com
pany that the time fixed as the ex
piration of its franchise is extended so
as to make its franchise a perpetual
one, he called the claim "absolutely
absurd.' The' real purpose of this
claim and other like contentions,"
said he, "is to secure, with the aid
of a club, an extension of its ex
isting franchise, which by its terms
expires on the first day of next Janu
ary. . :
' , To Lay Foundation.
It is to lav the foundation for a
plea of estoppel. It is to get indi-
recuy ana wiinoui mc- rcai purpuac
being known or understood rights and
extensions which it would be impossi
ble to secure directly. "
; "It is now only a matter of a tew
months when the city will have the
absolute right to the street railway
and to operate it as it should be oper
ated. Nevor ' did the city trave a
greater opportunity. Never could a
greater service be rendered to better
their condition. The one great thing
at the present time is not to lose the
rights -we have and a little later take
such action as will enforce and secure
these rights." - t - -..
Among other business,of the even
ing the Southwest club approved that
delegates to the Federation of Im
provement clubs introduce a resolu
tion in the federation requesting the
city coune'l-to call a meeting of all
civic bodies to pass upon futurejjond
issues. . ; .,

Why City Commissioner Hummel
Likes to Bask in Soft Moonlight
It may be all right to. know how
many windows there are in the court
house, or the color of Postmaster
Fanning'a eyes, or whether Chief
Salter has an open-faced watch;. that
may be 'all right but the question
is, what is the color or tlie moon these
nights, and what kind of a moon
shines at night time just now? Are
you observing? Do you notice the
moon? If not, why not?
Go to City Commissioner Hum
mel and learn of the moon, thou my
opic one. . Mr. .Hummel is a moon
worshipper. Ever since he was a
small boy he has believed in lunar
influence and has found surcease in
stealing a while away in the even
tide, to watch the moon as it sheds
its flow of mellow light upon the
stilly earth. -
The park commissioner visited Car
ter lake Wednesday evening and
feasted his eyes upon the harvest
moon which shed a lane of soft light
across the lake. In this lane gently
moved a motor boat, "a perfect pic

said..; .-' . " ' ' '

high in the heavens bathing the
earth with a blanket of beautiful yel
