OMAHA , Oct. 2. To the Editor of THE BEE :
The honorable city council recently re i-
quested n mass meeting of the voters io
consider the report of its special committee
on the contemplated Platte river canal
project. A largo and respectable number of
voters attended the meeting , listened to the
report , anil with' slight amendment passed
n resolution fnvorlmr the submission of a
l > end proposition under the terms of the ro-
port , that was adopted bv the council. jd
The printed report of the ordinance passed
for the submission of $1,500,000 , city bonds to
bo designated "electric light and waterworKs -
worKs bonds" boars but llttlo resemblance
to thu council's rotioit considered at the
mass meeting. In fact that report hns boon
Ignored and an apparent new schoino is [
presented. There Is nothing specific pro-
son loci in the ordinance now in the hands of
the mayor except n proposition that the
voters shall authorize the issue of $1,600-
000 bonds for eluctiio light and water >
plant purK | > ses. No provision Is
made for a commission contemplated
In the previous report. No manner is pro
vided for securing snld plantswhether by con
struction or purchase of existing plants. No
regulations for the investment of the funds.
No time is specified when sucn utidortnklncs
shall bo commenced or finished. No pro
vision that thu bonds shall bo void It Bf Bo
used within a given time. In fact , the propo
sition Is go general that it may bo construed
or the proceeds bo used In almost any man-
tier tlio present or any future council may de
termine by ordinance , without regard to the
interests of the voters and without protec
tion to thcui should u council to will It.
It , would seem from the terms of the
proposition pendlutr that tha canal project
had gone idlromorlng or was only Intended
for electioneering purposes.
This may do for the present , but the In
terests of the taxpayers and the enterprise
itself should not bo Jeopardized In any >
vague or uncertain way , B. H , Ronisox.

the election of delegates to the county con

passed off harmoniously , save in the First

and W. K. Wilson , who was his challenger.
Oliver , of course , is an administration man

Mr. Wilson Is a warm friend of Mr. Bryan.
The administration carried the city by a
strong majority. Hon. John Thomson was
loft out in the cola , being badly defeated in
his own ward , where ho is very popular
probably because ho is an admirer of the
"silver-tongued representative. "

to talk about passing the bill in Its present
This is what Senator Mandoison said to
TUB BEE correspondent this afternoon re
ferring to the outlook of * thn hill to uncon
ditionally repeal the silver purchasing act.
Senator Mnndcrson occupies a position on
the silver question which , taken in connec
tion with his experience and close personal
relations with senators upon both sides of
thu subject , enables him to express an
opinion especially valuable.
'It is not true , " said Senator Mandorson ,
'Hint , na has been announced In the Now
YorK newspapers , 1 have been busying my
self on the republican side of the senate to
secure a compromise.If there Is to bo u
compromise it must lirst meet the approval
of President Cleveland and then bo sub
mitted on the democratic side of the house.
What I have said about compromise was to
Muni Ho .Muna-jml by Democrats.
' 'It will bo In especially bad tnato for re
publicans to sock u compromise. Congress
wus called together In extraordinary session
by n democratic president to unconditionally
repeal the silver law , and ho has at his back
u decisive minority In both branches of the
national legislature. The conduct of this
bill is by democrats , and whatever Its fate
may bo it will bo duo to domocratio manage
ment. Therefore , any compromise must be
presented to the semite on the democratic
side of the chamber. Individually , I favor a
compromise. \\ould provide for the adop
tion ot n bill repealing the purclmslng clause
ot the Sherman net and tit the same tlmo
creating a law which would enable the sec
retary of the treasury , at his discretion , to
sell bonds for the purpose of replenishing or
increasing tlio gold reserve. The bill would
nlso provldo for the coinage of 50,000,000
or 00,000,000 ounces of silver solgnorage in
the treasury into subsidiary money. The
bill would nlso provldo for the purchase of
200,000,000 or 00 , < KM ) , < H)0 ) ounces more of silver
bullion as n commercial commodity nnd to be
represented by the issuance of certificates.
But there should be a definite tlmo llxed ,
and that not very far olsuuit , when the pur-
clmso ot , silver by the government , for any
purpose whatever , would stop. "
This' proposition of Senator Mandorson's
meets with much favor.
Omaha' * IVntofllco.
Senator Mnndcrson nnd Representative
Mercer called today upon Secretary
Carlisle atd ( a conference ensued in
which a final determination of the
Omaha federal building question was
reached. .Both , of the Nebraska representa
tives stated to the secretary that
they desired granite used iu tlio
superstructure and the contract to be
awarded at the earliest possible day.
Secretary Carlisle said ho had como to the
conclusion , after consulting with Supervis
ing Architect O'Kourko. that it xvould bo
better , even though the appropriation would
not r.dmltof dressing nnd carvimr the gruti-
ito , to do that work after the mater
ial was - t.put' in the wall and
to use it in the rough. This agreed upon ,
the secretary said howould see Architect
O'Kourko , and that the contract would bo
awarded this week. The contract , ho said ,
would i'o lo Drexel & Son of Omaha , whoso
bid on granito' was the lowest. Colorado
pink granite will bo used instead of Minnesota
seta granite , as the Colorado product is
the lighter in color and handsomer.
Smith Dakota's fish Hatchery.
Senator Pottigrcw today made inquiry nt
the headquarters of the fish commission
about the anticipated report which is to be
made upon the Investigation into the feasi
bility of establishing a fish hatchery in the
region of Hot Springs or Spearflsh , S. D.
The senator secured an appropriation of
$1,000 , in Iho last congress for the purpose of
makine an investigation with the view to
hatching lish In southwestern South Dakota
and supplying the streams thereabouts and
the investigation was completed some time
ago.Ho was informed today that the attache
of the commission who made the investiga
tion -was now In Tennessee and would not
return fo the city under some weeks. Ho
also learned that the report upon the South
Dakota investigation will bo. made to con
gress some tlmo this winter , together with
the , result of other kindred investigations.
Senator Pottigrow is confident that the fish
commission will recommend the establish
ment of 'a fish hatcticry either at Hot
Springs or Spoarilsh , where the conditions
are favorable , and when the report is made
to congress ho intends to make an effort to
secure an appropriation for the work.
The senator hits taken a keen interest in
the question of supplying the rivers und
lakes of the great northwest with fish , and
ho sees no reason why South Dakota streams
and lakes should not also be supplied by the
government , and with this object the estab
lishment of n fish hatchery iu thuBlackiliills
will bo u great convenience and saving of
tlmo and oxponses. The question is ono < of
great interest to northern Nebraska , as that
section would have Its water.courses sup
plied with fish from the South Dakota hatch-
