Cotntrj. , PUSH THEIR CLAIMS FOR MORE SALARY Coitraian to B Invited Attcad Tktn Mtiaa aad Haa What . . tka Carriers Hdt ta Ofr, ' , The Rural Leter Carriers' ' association continues t push its claims for recocni tlon by the government. President F. H. Cunningham of the national association stated yesterday that the association would call a meeting- soon In each con gressional district where there Is a rural service, and Invite the congressman r pre senting the district to attend. This meet ing, Mr. Cunningham asserts, , will bt called during the holiday recess of con gress, in order to permit every congress man to attend, in case he desires to do so. , ; at these meetings, to be held all over the country, the rural carriers will en deavor to show the congressmen who at tend the necessity for the passage of a blU for more wy for the rural carriers. Continuing on this subject. President Cun ningham said: "I have now three bills which have al ready 'been introduced advocating more pay for the rural carriers. One bill calls for aa advance in salary of S10O a year. while another asks for an Increase of tSOO per annum. We have prepared our own bill asking .that .the maximum be plaoed GOLD MEDAL Po-America EbrpMlUoa.

Thia bill we will not present to congress untU after the holiday recess, I and the roeetlnea I have mentioned have been held. We sincerely hope that con gress will take some action on this mat ter, and that aa soon as possible, for the reason that tha l&K) salary now paid Is not sufficient for a carrier to furnish horses, wagons, etc., and devote all of his time to the work." In conclusion President Cunningham said that he had received advices from prominent people in Washington that the request of the rural carriers would be carefully considered by congress, and that there was a probability of an in crease in wages all along the line among this class of federal employes. Fever Water Ordinance. There is an amended water franchise or dinance now before the city council, but it cannot be passed until the publication of the same for two weeks. Officers of Improvement clubs all over the city would Ilka to see this ordinance go through, aa It would give the city the right to locate number of Are hydrants. There haa been a demand for several years for more hydrants in every ward In the city, and the Increased' number of buildings really demands better fire protection, as well as the extension of ' mains for domestic use. With the overlap an increase in the number of hydrants was impossible. Now that the overlap bonds- have been sold, and old accounts settled up, there is some hope oT more hydrants if this ordinance Is passed. The levy for water remains the same as last year, but should the or dinance now under consideration be passed the company will locate sixteen new hy drants this year and twenty additional hydrants next year, the company to be paid for these hydrants and the wattr used by the annuity promised In the orig inal franchise ordinance. People who have erected homes outside of the hydrant dls trlcts ssy that they dq not care whether an annuity is paid or uot what they want Is water therefore, they favor thl amended ordinance as the easiest way out of the difficulty. Lariat? Carved Ralls. A J;cr. cr rr.crs nn are gs?1 rw in laying heavy steel curve rails at Twenty. fourth and I streets for the Missouri av enue car line. When this track wss first laid the switches and rails were of light material for the reason that heavier ma terlal could not be secured at that time. Not very long ago a rumor was current that the street car company proponed to make a change in Its eastern line and run cars down N Instead of L street. This caused some little commotion among resi dents on tt street. The laying of tha heavy steel rails and the new switches as sures the people now that the L. street and the Missouri avenue line will stay. Miss Clerk Satlsaed. Superintendent McLean of the public schools received a letter yesterday from Miss Delia Clark, dated Moorcroft, Wyo., In whlcl. she states that ehe la delighted with her new position. Miss Clsrk is a graduate of the South Omaha High school and has many friends here.' When a re quest came from Wyoming for teachers, Miss Clark accepted the offer. She la paid $40 a month and her board furnished. 8hs says she has twenty-five pupils, but not snough books to go around. Miss Clark says she likes the people there and Is con tent to teach during the term of her con tract Adeerilslac Beads. A week or so sgo the city council author ised the mayor and city clerk to advertise In the Omaha Dally Bee for the aale of l-l.OiiO refunding bonds, running twenty years and tearing I per cent interest, the Interest to be paid semi-annually. The at teuiloa of the city officials was called yes urday by a bead buyer to the fact that two eastern bond buyers art. now advertis ing these bonds for sale in eastern financial papers. Not a single bid for these bonds has been reoelved, as the bids do not close until I p. m.,' November 23. City officials think an . effort Is being made to sell this issue In the east before making e bid for the bonds. These same tactics were em ployed by some eastern brokers about three years ago. . , Hedeelna? Street Force. Mayor Koutsky haa ordered the regular street repair force to be reduced to two men.' This was done yesterday. These two men are paid at the rate of 26 centa an hour and work eight hours each day. Their duty Just now is to look over aide walks, nail down loose planks and in places were planks are missing fill In dirt enough to make the walk even. 3y doing thia it Is thought a number of damage suits can be prevented. City Engineer Beat said last night that if the weather softened up a few more men would be put to work repairing sidewalks, but no more street Improve ments sre contemplated this year.

SPECTACULAR PROJECTS IN NORTHWEST s Suggestions for People Who Have Telephone Grlevence Vapor Eleetrle Lamp Grows in Pnbllo Favor. The spectacular Idea of developing elec tric power from the glaciers of the north west is nesting a practical stage. It. is proposed to harness the glaciers of Mount Rainier to furnish light and power for manufacturing purposes to a group of cities in the Puget Sound region. The power will be derived from the waters that drip from the Icy fields of the Rainier peak that rises in the southwest comer of tha state of Washington to a height of 16,000 feet. The sources of supply are practically unlimited, for tha sixteen great glaciers, covering more than 100 square miles of the surface of the mountain to a depth of 100 to 2,000 feet, are constantly replenished by heavy rainfalls from the Pacific. The excessive precipitation in the upper slopes of the mountains yields a eoploua water supply that the engineers are now taking steps to secure before u haa escaped fur down the mountain side. For the present, the development Is to be limited to 20,000 horse power. A dam is being erected on the Puyallup river, which drains five of the sixteen glaciers of the mountain. Below this point the river drops rapidly into a deep canyon. Above this gorge, on the bench of the mountain, a flume Is .being built capable of carrying 1,000,000 tons of eater a day for more than ten miles to a cupacloua reservoir that will stand nearly 900 feet above the river. From this reservoir the water will be led to a power house in the gorge In four steel tubes, each four feet In diameter at the top, and tapering to a five-inch nozxle at the bottom. Tha stream nom eav.lt ilt will turn a pair of huge impulse wheels. The water will rush through the nozzle at the terrlflo rate of nearly three miles a ir.'.s'jte, er1 will look like a bur of solid Ice. A heavy bar of Iron thrown against It would be hurled away with frightful force, and with the ring of a powerful blow on an anvil. Were a strong man to try to cut the solid stream with an axe, the handle would be twisted from his grasp with Irresistible force. From the power house the electricity generated will be transmitted to a transformer station, where it will be adapted to the uses of the cities of Seattle and Tacoma, respectively, twenty-five and forty miles distant. It is pro posed to eventually extend the service from Mount Rainier to many (owns along Puget sound. It is claimed that this is the first utilisation of uiacler outflows for the generation of power. While this is trus of this country. It Is a matter of fact that for the last fourteen or fifteen years, In Switzerland, a large number of railways and light and power 'plants have been actuated by power derived from streams produced by the melting glaciers, inclad Uig those of Mont Blano Itself.

In addition to the marvelous horse power utilized and sup plied by this company a largo amount of the Niagara current is employed in electro chemical and electro-metallurgical opera tions and In the extensive grain operations carried on at Buffalo, and at the Buffalo Dry Dock company, where forty motors of upwards of BOO horse power capacity are employed In the process of building some of the largest steel steamships that ply the great lakes. But It la to the far west that we must turn our attention to find the longest power transmission In the world up to the present time; that of San Francisco and several other coast cities, from the Sierras in eastern California and over a distance nearly ten times that at Niagara. Another wonderful feature of this work Is that whereas the Niagara is a power se cured from a fall of from 150 to 200 feet of a huge volume of water, the large enter prises In California depend upon the utiliza tion of relatively small bodies of water, but with fulls varying from 600 to 1,600 and 1,800 feet. This application of power has relieved the strained conditions In many of the mines, owing to a scarcity of fuel, I and a large amount of miscellaneous work throughout that state Is now tilhatary to these long-distance transmissions, which excel in daring, in number and In commer- ', clal success anything attained in any other I part of the world. I The transmission of the power of the ' North Cuba river, In the Sierras, to San Francisco, above referred to, stretches across sixteen count lee. Tha systems have two courses, one at Colgate, over 200 m.les from the Golden Gate, and the other at Electro, 160 miles distant, meeting on San Francisco bay, at Mission San Jose and at Oakland. The Colgate plant la located at the base of a 1.600-foot hill. Water la brought a distance of seven miles through a timber flume capable of delivering 2J, 000 cubic feet of water per minute. Cur rent is generated at 2,400 volts pressure an J la t ty trar.ef?rwrs to jrnr of 40,000 and 63,000 volte and aa high as 80,00) volts have been reached.

A telephone company that had been be sieged with a great number of complaints as to the faults of Its service sent out a no tice to Its subscribers that the result of whatever . additional effort It would be willing to make to Increase the efficiency of its plant and working staff would be greatly enhanced if its customers would fry to talk better over its lines. This Injunc tion was followed by Instructions as to how people should use the telephone. It wss insisted that the first requisite is the proper pose. The transmitter should be ss nesrly vertical as possible, with the hearing fun nel so adjusted thst It Is level with the Hi when the head Is in the ordinary posi tion for conversstion. The Hps should be held about one Inch from the funnel and di rectly opposite Its center. Instead of mak ing the common mistake of shouting Into the transmitter, the speaker should use a tone only slightly above the ordlnsry con versational pitch, speaking, in fact, as If the person addressed were on the other slds of the room. Above all, csre should be tsken to talk slowly and to articulate distinctly. The talker is further advised to take plsoty of tune and naka a alight pause at the end of every sentence. Thin Is a great assistance to the many people, and their number, so the telephone com panies say, is very much greater than the public has any idea of who are more or less deaf. In many cases. It Is a further help to comfort In telephone conversation to allow a little time for the mental re ception of the ideas conveyed, for It fre quently happens that persons are prevented by nervousness from being as quickly re ceptive when listening on the telephone as they are In ordinary conversation. Clear, deliberate nnd reposeful telephone talking Is worth cultivation, and by taking a little trouble to learn the art many who are now in .the habit of blaming the man at the ether end of the line for his denseness will come to realize that the fault has been with themselves. gets tired dot whole percesslon Is goiu' to march right over his prosirste form, wit' de band playln' 'Hall Columbia' Je' llko nothln' had happened.
