The city council flnally got together last
night and passed the ordinance levying a
tax on all real anti personal property in the
city for the purpose of paying the expenses
of the municipal government for the fiscal
year commencing August h. A levy of 16
mills has been made to meet the current
expenses , figured on a valuation of $1,733,000 ,
which as the valuation as returned by the
assessors , This levy of S6 mills will bring
into thc city treasury the net sum of $88,700 ,
According to the ordinance the levy is
divided as follows : General fund , 10 mills ;
Interest fund , 12 mills ; police fund , 5 mills ;
Ore fund , 3 mills ; public light fund , I
mills ; judgment fund , 16 ½ mills ; park fund ,
one-halt of 1 mill ; water , 5 mills ,
The reeauo is to be apportioned as follows -
lows : Interest , $ i8S39 ; police , $7,850 ; fire ,
4,700 ; inblto light , $7,065 : judgment , $25-
tQ4 ; park , $785 ; water , $7,850 ; salary , $5,317 ;
engincer , $1,117 $ ; street repair , $4,317 ; general -
oral , 3,1413 , In the levy ordinance the salary -
ary , engineer , street repair and general
funds are bunched under the henri of general -
oral , but the 10 uiiiiis for this fund are apportioned -
portioned as mentioned. The amounts given
in the above apportionment represent the
gross sums , from which must be deducted
time usual 15 per cent reserve.
This Is the highest levy ever made since
the city was organized. but it is asserted
that amid : a course was necessary in order
to pay oft some pressing jtitlgments. It was
the orlgimmni Intention to make a levy of
emily 3 % mimihis for judgment purposes , but on
account of the pressing demands of time
Omaha Water company It was deemed best
to increase this fund to 16 % mills. A letter
frail : the water works company's attorney
ivas read stating that. unless steps were
taken to pa" tue water bill , which now
amounts to $21,000 $ , the council would be corn-
polled by mnandnunus to sit and make a ape-
cml 1ev ) ' for the liurpose. This rather
changed the plans of the council nod as a
result 10 mills had to be added to time levy.
Protests were read fromu property owners
in Brown park against the removal of the
arc light from Twenty-first and S streets.
It was stated that seven stores and twenty-
five residences are located near this light
and great inconvenience would be caused by
Its removal. Time communication was filed.
City Attorney Montgomery was instructed
to take legal steps to have the railroads
maintain lights at certain crossings ,
l'roperty owners on the south side of Q
street presented a remonstrance against time
passage of the ort1innnc creating a permit-
neat sidewalk district on Q street from
Twenty-seventh to Thirty-third street. It
was represented that the property could not
stand this additional expense at this time.
Engineer Beal sent in a report estimating
tIme cost of painting and repairing the two
viaducts. It is figured that the I. . street
bridee will cost $ l.875 while the 0 street
ivill amoummt to about $1,135. Twentieth
street between S anti U was ordered placed
ill fl iassalile condition. Four new ilers
vlli be Idaced under the west end of the Ij
street to replace th piles which have iottctl
off , The sidewalk on the south lde of Q
street from : : Thirty-third to Thirty-ninth
streets will be repaired by time street coin-
iild. for laying the wooden sidewalks foi'
the mmext tweivm months were opened and
the contract was awarded to Thomas Geary.
Dan ilannon was awarded the contract for
grading It street between Twentieth and
Twenty-first streets. Adjourned until next

Tue records in the register of deeds 0111cc
show that four-sixths of the east twenty
acres of the Ryan estate , which is located
west and south of Swift and Company's '
plant , has been transferred to James Ware
of Blair , the consideration being $8,400.
Mary and Catherine Garvey , Annie lint-
lenmiY ) and Thomas 3. Ryan are the four
heirs of the Ryan estate whose signatures
are attached to the deeds. TIle tract dis-
posed of consists of eighteen and one-half
acres. Eight auth omue-imIf acres adjoins the
Swift llaflt on the southwest while tile bal-
nnee is mamlo imp of blocics 1 , 2 and 4 of Val-
Icy Grove addition , Yesterday a statement
of time city taxes on this land was made up
by the city treasurer amid the amount , $640 ,
vas imald. This step vmts pilot to tile slgna-
ture of the deeds.
While rumors of this big purchase have
been floating around for several days no
definite information was gained until yesterday -
terday wlieii the transfer was actually made.
James Ware , to whom the property was
deeded , is tl'e same person who purchased
the land where the Aromur plant is now
located. anti for this reason considerable
interest has been manifest in the trausac-
tion. It was reported a few days ago that
thin laud was being bought for Nels Morris ,
the Chicago packer , but this could not be
verified and It is now knowmi to be a delu-
sion. The Iloctor-Jolinston company of this
city conducted the negotiations anti brought
about the sale , Neither Mr. hioctor nor Ed
Johnson would talk about the transfer.
They both profess ignorance as to the
tity of the real purchasers of the prop-
It was. however , learned that time property -
orty was purchased by Armour & Company
of Chicago and it is understood that it Is
for the use of the stock yards company.
Maiager : Kenyon of time stock yards corn-
IanY and Traitle Mammager McShaoe were
both questioned about the purchase yeatcr-
day afternoon , but declined to throw any
light oum the subject. From other sources ,
equally as reliable. it was learned that
while a draft signed by Armour & Co. paid
for time land it a-as to be held for tIme use
of the stock yards company. Acre property
in the packimig house distrIct Is getting very
scarce. amid within a short time the price
of lots iii the neiglmborlmood of tim packing
houses will be greatly advanced , ThIs re-
remIt iiurchiose will miot. it is stated , be im-
iirovetl at time vresent tune , bit will b
held by either Armour or time stock yards
company for future developments , In this
connection it ; mnigiit be mnentioned that the
report cmirrent. to time effect that the land
was being bought by Nels Morris was
spread for time purpose of drawing attention -
tion away from the real purchasers. Lunti
in this vicinity is worth about $500 an acre.
