Spleta May Cuter Into Wheelojie Arrnnse- ment to Oire Omntiit Another Linn lietwecn This City sud Krm City. The heavy movement of grain from No braska and Iowa to the south during tho last few months has convinced the Great Western Railroad company of the neces sity or seourlng a gulf port outlet for tho business from Omaha and a traffic deal that Is likely to bo consummated within tho next few weeks Is being arranged. If the deal goes through the Great West ern will have a direct line between Omaha and Kansas City, using the Wabash tracks from Omaha to Concep tion, Mo., -where trains will get onto its own line. Tho new move of the Great Western will give Omaha another through con nection with Kansas City for both freight nnd passenger business. The Burlington's lino between Omaha and Kansas City Is 19C miles, the Missouri Pacific's 205 and the Great Western's will be 200 miles In length. Tho distance between hero and Conception by tho Wabash Is 100 miles and from there tn Kansas City 100 mllas. As outlined, tho proposed arrangement between the flrnat Wotrn nnrl tu.. Wabash provides for business on 'a whoolago basis. Tho new route will glvo the Great Western the shortest lino be tween St. Paul and Mlnnpnnnlln nml Kansas City and will enable the road to get Into the passenger hauling business. It Is proposed to make this tho mann lino between tho two points and route nil of tho business through Omaha, with the understanding, however, that the Great Western will not do a local buslnoss be- ween Council Bluffs and ConcepUon. With tho Kansas Cltv irnt.wuv nnn ... the Great Western this road figures that It will get Into tho southern business good ana Hani and will be ablo to get 1st share of tho thousands of cars going out of Omaha monthly and being taken to now Orleans and Galveston for export and to the cities and nlantatlnnn nf ih south for milling and feeding purposes. The trend of the movement of the grain of Nebraska and tho central weHt during tho last season has convinced the Great Western, poople thnt Minneapolis and Chicago are not be be considered the .future grain markets and If thev nr tn get into the game they must glvo the umana elevator men a southern outlet. At Kansas City the company is In nor. tlon to handle grain going south, having close trarric arrangements with the Kan sas City Southern to Port Arthur and Galveston and with one Una I Orleans.

MONEY IS NOW LONG OVERDUE Property Owners Object to Assess ments for Cost oi lnyinw vote Msilns rConnctl Does Not LtUe Tnslf. Who will pay the .contractors who have, working under contracts let by the Water board, laid private water mains? The contractors are asking the question and further they Inquire when will they be paid. If at all? Some of them have wnited sixty days for their warrants and the Indications are they will have to wait that much longer. "And If we have to wait sixty days longer for our warrants." said Mr. Katr of the Kats Construction company, 'i for one will refuse to accept a warrant that does not draw Interest from the tlmo it was due." It appears that about $15,000 Js due con tractors for completed work on private mains. The fwnter commissioner has held up their warrants until the city council should meet and as a jioard of equalization equalise the assessments on the property In these districts. Th'e'.coun cll is under the impression that ltVwlll not have to do this very disagreeable task and has referred the Water board's proposition to tho city legal department for settlement. GenernI Discontent. This Is but one phase of the general discontent with the slowness of the Wnter board to meet Its minor obliga tions. Even the office force has been compelled to wait for as many as fif teen days after the usual time for the payment of salaries. This system has mado It Impossible for the emplqyes of the board to promptly meet their bills and so the trouble has been extended to creditors 'of employes. Objections to tho assessments, to cover the cost of laying pipe In private water main Improvement districts are pouring in on the city commission and that august body Is writhing under the pos sibilities of trying to placate the prop erty owners aroused by the high assess ments against them. Councilman McGovern of the depart ment of public Improvements has written the city legal department for Information as to the legality of the Water board's action In assessing property. for private mains. He cites section 24S of chapter 13a of the statutes, which provides that the board may -demand $100,000 for th,e cost of operation, extension and maintenance of the plant. McGovern cites sections 13 to 18 of chap ter 14a, which provides that the con trolling authority shall not take advan tage of the CO oents per front foot pro vision until It has elected to proceed under Its provisions. McGovern then raises these points: "Tour advice Is requested as to whether or not the Water board, after demanding and receiving the $100,000, has a rignt to then proceed under the second method, or, In other words, If the Water boaid elects to proceed under the second method, does It not relieve the council from certifying tho levy of $100,000 as pro vided by section 248 as above mentioned? "If the sum .of $100,000 Is levied and raised by general taxation would not a special tax upon property within a cer tain district for the same purpose be double taxation?" GOULD DIETZ GETS LEAVE SOON AFTER HIS ELECTION Gould Diets was Installed chairman of the municipal affairs committee of the Commercial club at noon and Immediately asked for a six weeks' leavo of absence.
