GARBAGE AT THE CAPITAL
Object Lesson Worthy of Study by
Our Municipal Administrators.
FIGURES THAT ABE SURPRISING
t-:lon of Contract Trlth Public
Control ns ARaJnst the Cllr Do
ing (he Work Itself for
(Tenth orticlo of scries.)
The city of Washington, D. C, boasts
that It produces more and "sweller swill"
than any other city of equal slrt any
where. Its record Is .14 of a ton pur
capita. Being a city largely of hotels
and apartment houses, this may be ac
counted for. .
And Washington has all its garbage
delivered to one contractor, Insisting that
It thus gets the best and cheapest service
for the money. It pays for all collection
nnd reduction 168,000 a year for Its popu
lation of about 350,000. whereas Chicago,
for Instance, pays out of the city treasury
J37S.0O0 to more than 700 team owners,
while 100 private contractors are said to
collect probably $1,000,000 from private In
dividuals. Ana Chicago is totally dis
pleased with its system.
There the publlo garbage haulers only
take their waste' from private houses
and apartments of less than four flats.
All others must look out for themselves.
And very , naturally Chicago Is agltatlnr
the matter ot placing the whole garbage
situation under municipal control
Back to Washington: The contractor
collects garbage dally at hotels, restaur
ants, markets and other designated places
and dally for five months In tho year
from other buildings and tor the rest of
tho year two and three times a week.
Not AVhoIlr Satisfactory.
In spite of some excellent features In
Washington's contract system, as a whole
It is not pueaslng to the officers of tho
corps ot engineers. United States of
America, In charge of It as wilt appear
from observations tn the last annual re
port ot Lieutenant Colonel Judson, en
gineer commissioner ot the district:
The contracts for the collection and
disposal of city refuse are all five-year
contracts which expire June SO, IMS. With
a view to obtaining less objectionable,
more efficient, and more economical ser
vices than are rendered by the contrac
tors, the commissioners recommended to
congress last year, und have also recom
mended In their estimates for the fiscal
year 1914, that an appropriation of 110,000
be made for the purpose ot Investigating
and reporting on the collection and dis
posal of city waste, Including the con
struction of disposal plants.
It o estimated htat tho contractors for
the disposal of city wastes havo Invested
In collecting equipment and disposal
plants sevoral hundred thousand dollars
which will practically have been paid for
during the periods for which they have
had contracts with the district, so that
the district has probably been paying to
the contractors, In addition to the actual
cost of the work and the contractors'
profits, the cost of these dlspotal plants
and collection equipment It the plants
wero ownca Dy tne aistnct they would
probably havo a lifo of from forty to
fifty years and could be economically
operated, whether by utilising the ser
vices of prisoners In the disposal of ref
use or by letting a contract on the basis
of the contractor's biasing the disposal
plants from the District of Columbia.
IXImntrs Mnfte tor fVnsfalnsrton.
If Omaha Is to consider tno building of
a municipal reducing plant or Incinerator,
It will be of Interest to note some of the
estimates, and observations made by men
who havo studied ho situation for Wash
ington. It Is pointed out that a city
could well afford to put a liberal sum of
money Into such a plant, for It will
make a good, permanent Investment.
' Washington produces 60,000 tons ot gar
bage a year and It Is figured that the
cost of the plant for the reduction of
this volume would bo about S32X.O00, that
Is the Initial cost of construction and
equipment This is not considered larne.
especially in comparison with tho cost of
the present method. Tho cost of collect
ing the garbage under tho proposed mu
nicipal system is estimated at $120,000 a
year and the coat of disposal about $110,
000. Then an annual Income from the plant
Is reckoned at about $200,000 say $150,000
from grease and fats and thp remainder
from fertiliser. So that It Is believed a
municipal plant would cut the net ex
pense to the city from $C8,CO0, as at pres
ent, to $30,000 nnd that for that $30,000 tho
city would be getting far better service
than It now gets for double that amount.
But some cities that have been winking
at all sorts of delinquencies on the part
of their privately-paid garbage collector
might regard the present system In
Washington as very rigid and alr-tlght.
If not altogether satisfactory. For ex.
ample, It Imposes a fine of $2 every time
tho contractor falls to collect garbage
according to the rules and In addition to
tins tno commission Is empowered under
tho contract to confiscate and operate
tho system whenever the prlvato con
tractor falls to run It as specified.
uaroago is collected and hauled In
tightly covered Iron boxes, which vh,n
filled, are transported to the transfer
station and lifted bodily by machinery
onto the railroad cars, which whisk the
garbage at least thirty-two miles beyond
the city's confines.
It will bo remembered that The Ben

Just such a detail as this In a possible
change of Omaha's nystem.
PIATTI HAS TRIED CASES
BEFORE MAYOR GAYN0R
Louts J. Plattl, Omaha attorney, tried
cases before Mayor Qaynor of New York,
who died Thursday, twenty-eight years
ago. Mr. Qaynor then was county judge
of King's county or Brooklyn.
Judging from recent pictures of the
late mayor Mr. Plattl thinks that he has
changed tn appearance very slightly In
the last quarter century, except that his
hair and beard have turned gray. He
remembers Mr. Qaynor as very courteous
In manner and very efficient In his work.

Number of Honors
Charles It. Sherman Is the happiest and
proudest man In Omaha at the present
time. Thursday night the Retailers' as
sociation rested an honor on his brow by
electing him to the office of vice presi
dent of the association. And he Is stilt
carrying In his pocket the prize his ad
vertisements won for him at the eleventh
annual convention of the Rexall repre
sentatives at Boston,
Mr . Sherman clipped promiscuously
several advertisements of the Sherman
& McConnell company that have ap
peared In The Bee and entered tho $S00
advertising contest of the Rexall stores.
The Sherman & McConnell ads received
sixth place In tho prize money for stores
In cities ranging from 00,000 to 200,000 popu
lation. There were about 4,000 advertise
ments submitted for the prise money, so
sixth prise is a greater honor than would
appear on the face of It
"Believe me," said Mr. Sherman, "that
was a considerable convention. Thirty
two hundred delegates attended, and they
certainly made things hum In sleepy, old
Boston. Wo had a big banquet and a
big smoker, and I never had a better
time. Wo had a vaudeville performance
that was better than anything I ever
saw In Omaha. Chlng Ling Foo, tho
famous Chinese magician, gave his com
plete act; Travato played the violin and
John Bunny gave character representa
tions. But of course, the best part of
It was the prise we received for our ad
vertising." And Mr. Bherman jingled the
coins In his pocket and grinned amiably

Speaking of the charges filed against

pawnshop detectives located the watch

business, and la moreover an, honest man.
He bought tho watch, believing it to bo

Spectacular Affair for the
Clnb Member and Thtr
As the sun recedes In the western sky
on the eve of September 20, COO troops
will begin to move. Innumerable battle
ships will stealthily get up steam and
scores of army transports will begin
their' trip across the waters, for a com
bined attack on Bulcretrac, themetropolli
of Awol Bay. But tho garrison of Bul
crotrao will be vigilant and they will de
tect the approach of the enemy In suf
ficient tlmo to save the women and
children and their happy homes. All this
will happen within a few short rods ot
Omaha and the firing of the guns and
cannot will be plainly heard from
Omaha's streets and the shower of flame
that will arise front1 an .exploding battle
shiy can be seen from tho higher points.
Is it a battle? Are the Japa attacking
the United States? Are the Mexicans' car
rying their revolution Into Nebraska?
Nol It Is the big sham battle the Cartel
Lake club will hold on the lake In
front of their club house. This Is the
big affair of the year for the club and
they are going' to do things right
United States army troops. United States
sailors and marines, the National guard
of Nebraska, Including the governor and
hla staff, and Qua Rense will partlclate,
Renze is Important because he Is to de
sign the battleships and the mtnea which
will blow them up. It will be a big af
fair and will rival the work of any pro
fessional fireworks concern.
The battle of Awol bay Is something ot
a mystery. Where Is tho bay? And
where Is Bulcretrac, tho metropolis? This
Is an open question school teachers are
asking their scholars. And the lad or
lassie giving a correct location of Bul
cretrac and Awol bay will receive a prize
from the club.
All In Military Style.
Every thing In the entertainment will
be accurate. The troops that act as re
inforcements for Bulcretrao will bivouac
tn true style and guard mount and tho
posting of sentries will be done In mili
tary fashion. Taps will blow and every
soldier, with tho exception of the sen
tries, will turn In for the night But out
of the shadows cast over the lake Is
seen the outline of the hulk of a hostile
battleship creeping stealthily Into the
peaceful harbor. But a watchful sentry
perceives the battleship and he gives the
alarm. Bugles sound the ''call to arms"
and the troops rush to the .shore to
repel the landing of the enemy. Instantly
Blgnals and wireless messages are sent
to the navy calling for assistance. The
big gunboats and battleships arrive, at
tack the enemy, a mine explodes under
the hostile battle ship and the enemy la
annihilated, Bulcretrac Is saved' and the
band plays tho Star Spangled Banner.
During the action of the battle, Frank
Weaver, president of tho club, guaran
tees that a sufficient quantity ot fire
works will be exploded to satisfy the
cravings of the excitement seeking small
boy and and Renze asserts that the mines
and battleships will be regular ones and
defies anybody to point out any defects
In their construction. A vaudeville en
tertainment will be given Just before the
battle. Six numbers have been provided.
After the battle dancing will be in order
In the cluh house and the dead soldiers
will bo revived In order that they may
lose none of the pleasures.
The officers who will command the
movement of the troops are' Major Carl
Hartmann, Lieutenants W. A. Alfonte, c.
R. Mayo of the army; IJeutenant W. W.

There is often all the difference in the world between
a cut that shows up well In the engraver's proof and one
that shows up well when It Is printed. Cuts made for a
newspaper have to ba made so that they will give good
results under the most adverse conditions. For that rea
son, a newspaper engraving plant produces cuts that thi
ordinary printer can use and get good results.
If you have some engraving to be done, send us the
work and compare both the results and the prices with that
