City hall official are generally-- ot the
"I Inion that the commission plan ot gov

and South Omaha by the Kettle River

panies In conjunction with C. E. Fan
ning. "However," taid Geotgo W. Craln,
city engineer, "The Bco Is right in ad
vocating a charter provision more favor

"The new commissioners will have, a
multitude of things to consider," said
one oflclal, "and while I think they will
be able to take care of them, we ought
to do noine of the work at hand In
stead of sioughlng It with the expecta

fallible. There has been a lot of smooth
woik here to connect with the public
works' fundi.
The $40,lKW creosote Wood block paving
job Is only one example of what can be

prevailed here for several years. City En

"I believe The Bee editorial offers the
best solution. We are looking forward to

so as to bring this about.
To Stop Combinations.
"The enactment of laws relating to all
kinds of combinations Is occupying the
minds of the best people In the country
today. It Keems that there are no laws to
e.fectuuliy regulate comolnatkns. The law
covering paving In Omaha should be so
constiucted that It would give the wid
est possible latitude In competition..
"on our three-iUths petition wheieln the
cha.acur of pavement is changed, I
would require bids to be received on all
known paving materials, thus allowing
the property holders an opportunity to

"Electricity la safest fot light and
power," satd Mr. lilchaelsen, "and Is
safest particularly In connection with dis
plays such as are used Jy merchants at
Christmas time. However, Buch is only
the case when electrical apparatus Is

tend to merchants of Omaha my usual
Christmas greetings with the proverbial
seven "don'ts:'
"Don't lasten anything by pins or other
wise to lamp cords.
"Don't allow lamps to touch anything
Inflammable.
"Don't permit tinsel of anyklnd (It all
conducts electricity) to come In 'contact
with lamps, sockets, wires or connections.
"Don't use drop cords In show win
dows. .. ..
"Don't let amateurs do electrical work.
"Don't foiget the danger of cotton bat
ten with or without electricity.
"Don't be afraid to call for inspection
of any display. No charge.
"The observance ot these 'don'ts' will
be conducive to a merry as well - as a
profitable Christmas, for destruction of
pioperty and probable loss of life will be
forestalled."

FRANK STIRLING,

61. Edward . Howell.
As to capdldates for city commissioner
it strikes me that Edward K. Howell
would fill the bill to the satisfactions of
the public. He has been a resident of
Omaha for over forty years, ever since
ha was a boy. He has always taken an
Interest In public affairs, and has capably
served the city as councilman. He knows
the city's needs and is capable of con
ducting any department.
ALFRED SORENSOX.
62. Edward Black.
Quite a number of names have been
mentioned as possibilities for service un
der the commission form, but here Is a
personality an honest reporter.
' Ed Black Is 33 years old, has a lot of
accounting experience and general busi
ness training. Has been on the Omaha
newspapers eight and one-halt years, In
four and one-half years of which he has
covered the city hall vlth satisfaction to
everyone. During that time he had at
tended as many counotl meetings as any
of the present city fathers and heard all
the pros and cons of every civic or other
proposition discussed. Again, for years,
It was his misHlon to take In the meet
ings of the Board of Education, where he
gained knowledge of all matters schol

Dh k O'Kane, the husband of the dying

tell, he Is under the control of Charles
Moore, who has refused to allow the
husband to see the wife. It was his re
