Wo have known for some time , however , that they wore dissatis fied with the existing stuto of affairs , because the whites who had settled on their reserva tion were allowed to remain , nnd there was evidence that the settlers would bo given patents to the land on which tboy had set tled.

Messrs. Flynn , Moyniunn and Hunt wore appointed a committee to confer with the business men. Mr. Brlgham urged that some means oughi to bo used to Induce South Omaha poocle tc do their trading In their city instead of golnp to Otnahn. Thu bulk of the money received as salaries here ho Insisted was being .sponl in Omaha. Ilo believed that if the resident ! of the Magic Cltv would patronize homo la- dustry they would not only help the town , but such a course would eventually bo a sav ing to the pcrsjn so doing of at least 5 poi cent. cent.Mr. . Moyulhnn thought some ordinance mlgut bo passed making the Omaha mer chants sccjro some permit before they could do nny business in the city. This was de clared imnraeticnblo , however , as It was in sisted that n man could solicit on foot nnd deliver by wagon , and further that no hindrance could bo interposed when a man wished to go to Omaha to trade and have the goods delivered horo. The matter of imposing an occupation tax on the business nnd professional men of the city to help out the ilnnncosjof the municipal ity was tnken up. On motion Messrs. How- land and Flynn were appointed a committee to circulate n petition to gather the opinions of tlio business and professional men as to having nn occupation tax of from So to S'JQ ' with the exception that 'Saloonkeepers pay $100 or upwards. Mr. Carroll made a most omphatlc kick about Imposing the duties ot street com missioner on the chief of police. Ho declared that , it was poor economy for'tho city to do so , as the chief had enough other work to look after. Ho told how , near his house , three workmen consumed two days in putting in a cross wain which ho and another man , ho was sure , could construct In ono day. Money would bo saved , ho insisted , by the city employing a competent street commissioner. Mr. Mc Millan cited an example similar to that re lated bj-Mr. Carroll. The latter contlomau then scored the council for pasc extrava gances. On motion the name , of ' 'Business Men's association" was chosen as the title of the club. Thn association adjourned to meet with the Board of Trade in an open mooting next Tuesday night if agreeable to that body. Soutli Oniiihn'B Miin.nccs. "It makes mo tired1 says Councilman Conloy , "to hear this blowing about South Omaha being almost financially bankrupt. South Omaha is today the best , business city in the state. Money circulates moro freely hero , nnd there is less complaint about hard times than there is anywhere else In Ne braska. Yet a lot of condemned croakers would ruin the city if they could by mak ing the world believe that both as individuals and as n city wo nro bankrupt. Suppose our city is in debt what of ill Wo will bo able to pay every cent wo owe. The money spent has gone into public improve ments that is , it was voted for that purpose nnd what was actually expended for the development of our city was surely well spent. It could not have been put to a better use oven If wo did go in debt. Why , I lived in the town of Lake , the South Omaha of Chicago , when it went into debt for $1,000,000 for pub lic Improvements. The town like South Omaha had great packing industries , but her prospects for nnymg wore no bolter than these of South Oinuhn for the same amount today. Yet the money was all paid and South Omaha will pay her debts and don't you forgot It. "Just think for n moment tbo amount of money paid out here dally in the packing houses. It aggregates 87,400 each day , or J44,400 per week. I don't believe that the payrolls of all the Industries of Omaha will compare with it. If wo wore twenty miles from Omaha wo could build up 11 snlcndld city , but fully GO per cent of our earnings go to the Omaha merchants. Still , with the re maining 40 per cent wo are able to hold our own. " JDIIOH and tlio ( hiini CIul ) . Joseph I * . Wcoth is of the opinion that Oscar P.
