PI AFFAIRS AT SOUTH OMAHA Bond lime to take Up Overlap Seemi to Be Unpopular. OCCUPATION TAX PROPOSED INSTEAD t'ltr Officials Eatlaaate that Raoaglt Caald Be Realised aa Saerlal Tax In Two Veara to Clear FloatlS Debt. There seems to be a feellne Imonc ihs DeoDle thst tbe city should not at this time csll a special election for the pur pose cf voting bonds for the taking up of tbe overlap which has been accumulat ing for years. One resson Is on account of the expense and the other is a plan for mulated by certain members of the pres ent admlnlstrstlon. It is now proposed to levy an occupation tax upon all classes of business, Including professions) men, banks, etc. One sugges tion is that each saloon be taxed 1200. This. If carried out, will bring In about $18,000 and the assessments on tbe other business men will be msde large enough to bring the total up to $25,000. This amount will pay off half of the overlap and the expectation Is thst the same tax will be levied next year, thus clearing the city of Its current debt and at the same time avoiding the Issuing of bonds. This plan of assessing an occupation tax has been tried here several times, but has never been really successful for the reason that business men would not pay, while the liquor dealers were forced to put Up. If the occupation tax, as proposed. Is not favored by the people the council proposes to endesvor to Induce the liquor dealers to get out and hustle for the bonds proposed to be Issued. It Is assarted that these bonds can be aold for $3,000 premium, pro viding that Interest at the rate ef 6 per cent is paid. Should the Issue go for a less amount buyers say that par will be paid. Mar Be Marder. Investigation made yesterday showed that there is a possibility of Edward Woods having been murdered. After tbe autopsy which was conducted by two physicians, had been completed and the report had been made to the county attorney of Sarpy county and the coroner. It was dis covered that prints of a boot heel were plainly discernsble on the left side of the face of the deceased. This caused an order to be Issued by Mr. Patrick, county attor ney for Sarpy county, for the Inspection of the clothing worn by Tom Joyce and Webb Clark, the men who were last seen with Woods. Dr. Curtis of South Omaha was directed to make tbe examination with a microscope and he found blood spots on the clothing of both of the men. When questioned about these spots yesterday aft ernoon the prisoners, who are held for fur ther examination, admitted, 1 la asserted, that they had a scuffle with Woods and that he was struck In the nose with such force as to bring about bleeding. As for the heel prints on tbe face they deny all knowl edge. This case may still bring about some In terestlng facts, but the fact that the county attorney and the coroner and the jury did not request the presence of the train crew which was supposed to have struck Woods looks In a measure rather peculiar. It may be that the county officials are holding back certain Information which they have secured In connection with the case. The remain of Woods wsre Interred at St. Mary's cemetery yesterday forenoon. Poatooa Brldaro Bale. Secretary Watklns of the Pontoon Bridge and Ferry company said yesterday that the announcement made In an uptown sheet about the sale of ths pontoons to T. C. Parmelee was rather premature. He admitted that negotiations were pending and that he hoped the deal would go through. The neglect of tbe city, said Colonel Watklns, to provide a suitable road to the river was tbe cause of disposing of the pontoons already constructed and the steamer Castalla. From the present out look there will be no ferry across the river at this point this summer, but Henrietta will be run as an excursion, steamer by those who have purchased the pontoon company's business on the Iowa side of the river. Faneral of Joseph Crawford. Funeral services over the remains of Jo seph Crawford, who died at his home, 2409 N street, on Arbor day, will be held this afternoon at tbe First Methodist Episcopal church.

Treasurer Howe stated that hs would try and make a call for city and school warrants on Msy 6. This call will use up about all of the monsy the city and the school district has on hand. Jaek Harley Reforaas. For the thirty-eighth time this year Jack Hurley, beter known as "Red Muxtle," sppesred bsfors Police; Judge King yester day to answsr to the old charge of being drunk and disturbing the peace. After a fatherly lecture delivered by the Judge Hurley agreed to take the pledge aad after he had beea sentenced to flvs dsys In ths county Jail In ordsr to give him a chance to sober up hs signed aa agree ment In which he promised to abstain from all Intoxicating liquors for seven months.

CALLS IT FIRST WORLD TRUST Vienna Paper Reflects Advert Corn meat of Aastrla on Morgan Shinning; Combine. ' VIENNA, April 24. The comment here la generally adverse to the Morgan steamship combine. Tbe Neues Welner Journal char acterises It as ths first world trust and ssys: "Tbe interests of tbe entire world are opposed to America monopolizing tbe whole shipping traffic of the world, or using Inter national navigation to develop its own ex port trade and aerve its own political ends. Tbe pressnt organization contains the root of a still closer combine, of which America will be the strongest member, notwith standing the tact that Germany is abls to bring into the pool a hundred times ths traffic of America, yet the auperlor organ ised financial power of the Morgan syndi cate will eventually give the United States supreme control. "From the standpoint of national Inter ests the trust Is the most dangerous con ceivable and It Is only natural that tbe states affected should wstch the develop, meat most closely and take every precau tion possible. It may be found necessary to extend the system of state ownership to the sphsre hitherto left exclusively for pri vate Initiative. Yet sti.ts ownership of ths commercial marine would greatly reduce its mobility and give fresh advantags to Amer ica, which has other means of defending and concentrating Its own interests.

Silver went down like a wet collar and didn't come to until the wagon had delivered blm back at the Jail, with a lump on his hesd ths slxe of a jockey's shirt stud.
