School Board Finds
Fault With Its Coal;
Is the school district of Omaha (differing
a heavy loss from unnecessary waste of
fuel? The buildings and grounds com
mittee of the Uoard of Kducatlon thinks
so and has Instructed the attorney to find
out whether the fault can he remedied by
revoking the present contract and read
vertlslng for bids on coal. If this can
not be done the commltteo will Investi
gate the system of firing used by the
Architect John Latenser first called at
tention to tho fact that 000 tons ot roal
have been burned at the Omaha High
school this year, and that tho heat pro
duced was not sufficient to justify the
amount of fuel burned. He is also under
the Impression that a lot of the smoke
from school buildings U duo to the coal
or to Improper firing,
A short time ago the buildings and
grounds committee advertised for steam
coal to supply the buildings now U:lug
furnished under contract with Illinois nut.
The bids wero received and In tho came
mail came a note of warning from the
Hull company saying they had tho con
tract and would resent any Interference
with their rights. The bids on steam
coal were not satisfactory anyway, said
some of the members of the committee,
and It was doubtful If steam coal could
be used at all, so tho bids were filed and
no new contract was made.
COUNTY WILL NOT PAY FOR
PRISONER'S CLOTHES RUINED
The Union depot postofflce stntlon has
proved a very popular place for tho
mailing of purcels post matter, accordlmr
to officluls at the Omaha postofflce. Thm
is due to tho fact that that station is
easily accessible from the lUrgo whole
sale district of Omaha. Friday afternoon
parcels were brought to the' station in
small wagonloads from somo of the
vvnolesale' districts and malted under the
parcels post system.
A horso and wagon delivery of parcels
post matter was made In Omaha Satur
day. Tho first day's dollverlts were mado
with an automobile, the driver of which
volunteered the Fcrvlces of the car with
out remuneration. The next day vhe
Omaha carriers delivered the parcels
afoot. If tho horse und wafc'on method
proves successful this will bo continued
for a time. The postmaster is authorized
by tho department to employ horso and
wagon If necessary. After the parcem
post has been tried out for a few month
the department expects to be able to
make some regulations for the handling
of the deliveries.
Pncknsren lo He Counted.
Kvery parcel of parcels poat matter
mailed In Omaha and every parcel deliv
ered in Omaha for the first fifteen days
of January will' he counted. A report
will be made from this and nil other post
offices In the I'nlted States as to the
amount of business handled during that
time. Shortly after January 10, when the
report will be made, tho general commis
sion which made the regulations will
again be called Into session at Washing
ton to go over the reports of tho volume
of business and make some recommenda
tions as to the appropriations that In Its
Judgment wl" likely be needed to carry
on the business.
The mailing of parcels In Omaha Is still
heavy. At noon and shortly after that
tlmo the mailing Is usually the heaviest
of tho day. At that time as many ia
thirty persons are often In line awaltlnir
their turn at the stamp windows.
Hefore tho parcels lOHt went into effect
Superintendent Stlce of the fourteenth
division of the railway mall service es
timated that tho increase of the railway
mall business would be about 16 per cent
In consequence of tho Inauguration of tho
parcels post In the fourteenth division.
So far lie says he has no reason to change
his estimate. Ho has reports from some
branches estimating Unit the Increase In
the quantity of mall has been from 2 to
S per cent or more. As yet the system
has not gotten completely under way.
"Wo can handlo an Increase of 25 per
cent In the mails without discommoding
us to any great extent." said Superin
tendent Stlce, "but I do not now, and
never have, anticipated an Increase nf
over 15 per cent. We can handle u U
the gas company will be discussed. It
tho agreement Is ratified the people will
be given an opportunity to vote on an"
extension of franchise, tower raUs aro

the franchise is extended.
Plan Now to Unite
County of Douglas
With Sarpy County
Proposed changing of county boundary
lines to place South Omaha In Sarpy
county, the county scat then to be moved
from Papllllon to South Omaha, will bo
countered In tho state legislature by a bill
to annex Sarpy county to Douglaa county.
Announcement to this effect waa made
by State Heprcsentatlve-eloot Sam O.
Hoff and Kmest Simon. The bill now In
Fearing annexation of South Omaha to
Omaha and consequent ruin of them
selves, the political bosses ot South
Omaha have doslsed tho Sarpy county
South Omahn alliance scheme. They
plan a fight In tho legislature for chang
ing tho boundary lines so as to put South
Omaha In Karpy county. This done, it ts
believed thoy would have no trouble in a
special election In removing tho county
seat to South Omaha. Tills would ef-
fectually thwart nny efforts of Omaha
and the cltlxenshlp ot South Omaha to
merge the two cities.
Messrs. Hoff and Simon believe If there
Is to he a merger and change of boundary
line at all It will be oa well to con
solidate the two counties In their entirety
and let Omaha be tho county Beat
