Gilbert authorised the statement that Dm friends of the bill would undertake to amend the revenue bill so as to embody the provisions of, H. R. 330. It is given out that a persistent, light will be waged to, accomplish this -end. The suggestion has been made that unless the Omaha char ter bill passed' fills' 'could not be done, as the present Omaha charter exempts rail road terminals from local taxation In the manner prescribed in this bill, but Mr., Gilbert takes issue with this view. He saj's that in that event. If the revenue bill was pasaed .lt would naturally amend the charter and eecure to the people of Omaha, as' well as to other municipalities ot the stitei this coveted right.

Wilson of Pawnee concurred In these re marks, saying he was sura every member of the bouse was thoroughly determined as to his attitude on this bill.

(Special Telegram ) E. Roaewater, who came down from Oiaaha. (hlsafternoon, was invited to ap pear before ithe, Douglas county delegation tonight to discuss the Omaha charter bill. H. R, 320. Mr. Roaewater aald his Idea of a charter for a metropolitan city would be one , on ft broad gauge, that would meet present and future conditions. In this re spect he thought the present charter of Omaha was deficient. Mr. , Rosewater fa vored a general policy of expansion rather than contraction. He thought the , city should have from twelve to sixteen warda rather than nine. He believed It would be wise to elect one councilman for every 1,200 or 1,500 voter. Varied Interests re quired this. It the city could not legislate a higher atandard of qualification and mor ality in its council it could Increase the number. Mr. Rosewater argued against a reduction of salaries for fear of inducing a cheaper set of .men. He did not want extravagance, but thought,, as compared with other cities ot similar size, Omaha waa paying ft low scale of salaries. In the matter ot the police scale ot salaries as proposed by tbe new charter bill he thought, however, the scale should start at about $50 far probationers, a little lower than the bill 'proposed, then advance gradually. He objected to the proposed plan of subjecting the names of all street and other minor city employes to the action of the council. He said If the public works officers who hired these nTen were not re sponsible discharge them.' ' "I believe In responsibility and centralization," said Mr, Rosewater, and In this connection he ob jected to the comptroller being made -ft member of the'Board of Public Works.

Their determination ot take this step was deliberately reached as their person ally written signatures will attest.

Following Is the veto communication in full: I return herewith without my approval ordinance No. i'M entitled "An ordinance granting to Andrew Rosewater. his suc cessors and ajalansT or any other person or corporation who may accept the term tin conditions of said ordinance, their buc- esKors and AsslKns the. right In. upon. over, under and along the streets, boule vards, alleys and public grounds of the lty of Omaha, to erect wires, poles, con duits, etc., for conducting and distributing ertrlo currents and. energy for power. lighting and heating purposes, etc.," for he reason that 1 consider the said ordi nance will not accomplish the purpose for which It purports to be intended. The serious objection to this ordinance is, that while on its face It would seem to be granting to Andrew Rosewater, his suc cessors and assigns, the rights and .privi leges set forth In the ordinance, as a mat ter of fact, it does not grant to him or to nis successors ana assigns any rignts or privileges that can be made available here after. Fanlt of h Ordli In addition to Andrew Rosewater. his successors and assigns, the ordinance ex tends the rights and privileges to any other person or corporation whjo may accept the terms and conditions of said ordinance, it peclfylng any other person or corporation who might accept the provisions of this ordinance would make more certain tne futjnLching of cheap power to the city of Omaha, 1 certainly would favor this fea ture of the ordinance, but I do not believe extending the terms and provisions of said ordinance to any other person or corpora tion wno mtgnt accept tne same, otner than Mr. Rosewater and his successors and assigns, will accomplish this result. In fact, I feel quite certain that. It will have the opposite result. It Is well known that an enterprise of the extent and character contempated by this ordinance cannot be undertaken or completed without the large Investment or eastern money, it is also well known that capital Is timid and If other persons and corporations other than Mr. Rosewater and his successsors,- by merely -accepting the terms and provisions of thla ordinance, would be placed In po sition to Immediately undertake or start a similar enterprise It would be utterly Im possible Tor Mr. Rosewater to induce cap italists to take hold of the venture with him. I believe that "every tub should stand on Its own bottom." and that In this case Mr. Rosewater should be permitted to undertake the great enterprise which 'is contemplated without being loaded down and hampered with provisions that would render the grant to him of no use or value.

The least the mayor and council can do is to permit the legal voters -of the city at, the next city election to vote on thla question not in ft blanket form, aa It Is now presented, but In the form of a direct frant to Mr. Rosewater and his successors, n the event that this is done. eVen though Mr. Rosewater and ms successors snouia fall to- accomplish results, the situation, so far aa the city Is conoerned, will be bo worse than Jt .ls now. and no worse than It would be If no r-ich ordinance were nuMPil.

In addition. It la hut due the oeoble. when voting on a proposition of this nature, to know definitely In advance to whom the rights and privllegea are granted.
