Make Formal Request for
FRANCHISE EXPIRES SOON
The city council adopted a resolu
tion, prepared by Corporation Coun
sel Lambent, claiming ownership of
most of the tracks 'and property of
the Omaha and Council Bluffs Street
Railway company, on February 19 of
This claim is based on in act of
the legislature of February 18, 1867,
when a fifty-year grant was given to
the Omaha Horse Railway company,
with this stiplation:
"Provided, That at the end of fifty
years the said jad, depots and other
equipment shall revert to the city of
What City Claims.
The corporation counsel admits his
inability to define exactly just what
property of the present system' would
rightfully and legally come within
the city's claim of reversion, but in
the resolution adopted by the council
the following lines are claimed as rep
resenting today the outgrowth of the
horse car system at the time of its
consolidation with the Cable Tram

became known as the Omaha Street

To Make Formal Demand.
The effect of this resolution is that
the city wilt make a formal demand
upon the company to "surrender its
interests, rights and property by vir
tue of and to the extent of the direc
tion and requirements of the pro
visions of the territorial act."
Failure of the company to accede
to the demands of the city will result
in a penalty of $300 a day for each
day on and after February 19. .
The corporation counsel outlined to
the council the difficulties 'which lie
in the way of the city defining just
what is meant by a "real and substan
tial interest in and to all parts of the
street railway system, depots, equip
ment and rolling stock of the Omaha
and Council Bluffs Street Railway

Says Franchise Expires.
Thf council took the further posi
tion that the franchise of the Omaha
Horse Railway company expired on
Mondav of this week: that by reason
of the consolidation the present com
pany has been operating most of its
lines and making many extensions
upon the rights conterrea Dy tne om

In connection with the inability of
the city at this time to "lay its hand"
upon its own property, as claimed, by
the city legal department, the corpor
ation counsel, in his recent extensive
report on the situation, offered this
"It strikes me as quite manifest
that there has been a studied purpose
by the companies to shuffle the cards
in the various deals so as to lose com
pletely such interest as the city may
have had under this provision for re
version. Since the consolidation there
is little or no trace available in the
various acts of the company to indi
cate any claim on its part to any of
the privileges or powers granted ty
the territorial legislative act. Asso
ciation with this act seems to have
been shunned as far as possible."
Courts to Determine.
The corporation counsel will not
recommend any summary action by
the city. The resolution passed by
the council will be transmitted to the
street railway company by the city
clerk as a formal demand and if the
company should refuse to comply,
then the city will proceed with a
court action in the form of a plead
ing, asking the court to determine the
rights of the city upon the law and
facts as presented by the city legal
