Waterways Meeting
To Be Held in Court
House, Present Plan
It is believed that the hearings on
the Great Lakes-St.Lawrence tide
water plan in Omaha on June 1 will
he held in the council room of the
county commissioners in the court
house, J. M. Gillan, manager of the
industrial bureau of. the Omaha
Chamber of Commerce, said yes
terday. Mr. Gillan had taken the matter up
with Commissioner O'Connor, cus
todian of the court house, who verb
ally agreed to allow the interna
tional commission on the waterway
project to use the room for their
That there will be an enthusiastic
delegation from several nearby cities
at the hearings was assured yester
day by John L. McCague, chairman
of the waterways and pipe line com
mittee of the chamber who is also
a member of the executive commit
tee. Sioux City representatives will
be present to advocate the deep water
route from the lakes to the Atlan
tic, he promised. A St. Joseph party
will also attend. Both will submit
briefs of their contentions for the
scheme and substantiate and elabo
rate them with oral arguments be
for the commission.
Street Flushing is
Discussed by C. of C.
Executive Committee
Street flushing was discussed by
the executive committee of the
Chamber of Commerce again yester
day and held for further considera
tion before again taking the prob
lem of day or night flushing of
downtown streets up with the city
It has developed, members of the
committee said, that there is a
division of opinion among business
men as to the desirable time to
wash the pavement. Automobile
dealers and drivers alike prefer to
have the flushing done after mid
night, when there are very few cars
on the streets. It minimizes acci
dent chances, they said, and does
away with the splashing of cars
parked in the path of the water
wagon. .
A number of retail merchants
favor the night flushing, and several
others like the present system of
washing downtown streets during
the day. Not a few favor both.
The advantage to day cleaning,
those favoring it put forth, is that
it means clean streets for shoppers
and tends to cool the atmosphere
during the day.

Police Chief Sets Detectives at
"Work on Accident Which
. Caused Mrs. Ensor's
. Death.
Chief of Police Eberstein has
ordered a thorough investigation
into the cause of the fatal lutoo
bile accident at Fifty-second and
Dodge streets last Friday night in
which Mrs. Inez Ensor. 3308 North
Fifty-third street, lost her life. Au
tomobiles driven by County Com
missioner A. D. Compton and Har
ry Montgomery of Council Bluffs
crashed into each other.
Failure of a coroner's jury to de
termine the blame has incited the
chief and Assistant City Attorney
T. B. Murray to action, they de
clare. Two detectives have been as
signed to the case.
, Murray Investigates.
Following exoneration of County
Commissioner Compton and JJarry
Montgomery at the inquest Mr.
Murray conducted a personal inves
tigation into the cause of the acci
dent. "I have witnesses to prove that
the county commissioner s car was
traveling 50 miles an hour when the
accident occurred," Mr. Murray de
clared. i Yesterday he stated he would rec
ommend that the city take further
action in connection with the case.
Chief Eberstein manifested inter
est in the faqt that the same coro
ner's jurymen who ordered three po
lice officers held tothe district court
two weeks ago for less serious af
fairs sat on the Ensor case.
According to information concern
ing the accident as obtained by
Mr. Murray, County Commissioner
Compton's car landed ISO feet in a
vacant lot after it had crashed into
the Montgomery car. The police re
port states that Montgomery's car
was steered into the vacant lot.
Claim High Speed.
Witnesses who were not called by
the coroner in the investigation de
clared after the inquest that Comp
ton's car was "flying through space."
Referring further to the accident,
Mr. Murray declared following hi
"It is becoming lawless when a
coroner's jury will order city police
man held for manslaughter when the
patrol or police motorcycles chance
to strike pedestrians and then com
pletely exonerate a speeding motor
ist who has no such emergency right
to the use of the streets."
When told of Murray's statement
County Attorney Shotwell declared
he did not believe that a car going
beyond a reasonable speed could
strike another without greater dam
age to the bodies than apparent on
either Compton's or Montgomery's
machines. Compton testified his
speed was "reasonable."
"I expect to go further into this
matter," the county attorney said.
Fred Blackwell, negro janitor at
the Glenarlo apartments, Fifty-first
street and Capitol, avenue, an eye
witness to the crash, said yesterday
that the Compton car was going "50
miles an hour if one." He said he
remarked to Mr. and Mrs. Jensen,
who were with h:m, that the car
was "hitting too fast to pass Fifty
second street."
Jensen, chauffeur for Victor Jeep,
102 North Fifty-third street, cor
roborated Blackwell's story.
Commercial Flyers
Must Pay for Use of
Omaha Landing field
The aerial transportation commit
tee of the Omaha Chamber of Com
merce was instructed by the execu
tive committee of the chamber to de
vise a charge schedule to be levied
against commercial aviators using
the Ak-Sar-Ben landing field at
Sixty-second and Center streets.
This step, members of the execu
tive committee explained, is similar
to action taken at all cities where
commercial flyers use air mail fields
in their own interests. The purpose
is not to drive away the civilian fly
ers, but to require them to pay their
share for the upkeep of the field. In
no case will the fee charged be ex
cessive, it is understood. Members
of the executive committee pointed
out that passenger flights each week
end were netting the aviators several
hundred dollars a day. Either a flat
charge or a percentage of their re
ceipts will be asked.
No charge will be made of tour
ist flyers, the executive committee
announced. Cross-country flyers are
urged to make stops at Omaha and
are welcome to use the field for
landing. , Harley Conant is chair
man of the transportation com'
mittee. ' He will confer with Field
superintendent Votaw of the air
mail service and with commercial
flyers in regard to establishing a rate

Meat Cutters and
Butcher Workmen
Request Wage Raise
Amalgamated Meat Cutters and
Butcher workmen organizations of
all the big western packing houses'
have requested a raise of $1 a day.
The men blame the cost of living
for asking the increase. The ad
vance is based on an eight-hour day
but the request does not stipulate

12 cents an hour. If the raise is
denied, the proposition will go be

Chicago and the men believe it
will probably take a month before
any .decision is handed down.
