HINDS, 150 West Street PORTLAND, MAINE Aiiiiouiicrmeitt In Millie that If the Water II 111 U I'uucil Suit Will lie Immeillntely nronght 4 to Question KlKlit. c Opposition to tho Charge bV tho Water hoard of 60 cents per front foot for the laying of water mains was strongly voiced nt the meeting of the Real Ks tato exchuuKo, and a vote of tho members turned down the recommendation of the public service committee that the section of the bill written by It. needier Howell, establishing tho SO cent charge, should be upheld by the exchange. Carl C. Wilson announced that If the water bill goes Into effect nnd the 60 cent chargo section remains In It a suit would bo Immediately filed by u prominent Omaha citizen to detormlno whether or not the city has tho right to the uso of' existing mains not paid for by the city. "It Is startling, how much money is expended by real estnto men for build ing city water mulns,'.' he said, "and as long ns the city gets tho revenue from these mains It Bhould Pay for them." C C. George' declared that the chnrge Is Inequitable and unjust; that the ma jority of mains In Omaha do not cost 60 cents a foot. Many six-Inch mains serv ing water to both sides of the street, he dtclared, do not cost over 78 conts a foot, and tjio Water board's price Is II cents moro than actual cost. In no case will theso mains cost more than 90 cents n foot and the Wuter board will charge consumers on both sides -of tho street 30 cents each a front foot. Fred Shotwoll said water hydrants only should bo taxed. They are of benefit to the city nnd should bo paid, for by the city. Ho said yio contention that the pro perty owners pay for water is untrue; that the consumers only were the- ones who paid the bills. Harry Tukey declared that It was a question whether the Water board oould eollect tho taxes unless the city council makes the levy. Tukey was chairman of the committee, the section of whose re port concerning tho charge for water, was opposed by the exchange, r K. Beecher Howell was In tne room early In the meeting, but left before the argument started. He said he was going to Uncoln In tho interest of his water bill. . OMAHA GIVEN GOOD BOOST IN DOMESTIC ENGINEERING An Interesting quotation In a recent Issue of Domestic Engineering gives Omaha's speed record In a business way, as seen by J. C. Blxby, president of the Nebraska Master Plumbers' association, Omaha: "Slnco you wish the speed record of business nffalrs lii Omaha and the state, I muBt remind you that 'Omaha' being the hub and center of the continent, could not reasonably be expected to show the velocity of cities and states located nearer the periphery. But notwithstanding the fact of its being the hub. with all that weight to turn, we still have power1 enough left to put up several $1,000,00) 'buildings In the lost year on the side while attending to our duties and amuse ments, which with the new 11.000,000 hotel subscribed for and with Omaha the larg est butter market In ' tho world, It Is eustly explained why there Is so much butter fat' rising to tho surfaco on a great many constructing contracts. When the homes on the farm are Installing from $1,000 to $5,000 heating nnd plumbing sys tems, and brooms are superseded by vacuum cleaners as well. It Is fair to as sume that the state Is In confortablo con dition, and the state clearances look well." t JUDGE E. K. LONG RESIGNS JUSTICE OF PEACE DUTIES The rtoard of County Commlsslonpis has received and accepted the resignation of Judge Ebcn K. Long from the official duties of justice of the peace. Judgo Long has been serving In that capacity for the last twenty-one years and gives Increasing deafness as his reason for re tirement. The board has not yet made sn appointment to fill the vacancy. Hotel Proprietor Unable to Carry Out His Contract Mabelle Woodj 1119 Douglas street, was nrested Tuesday night for oonductlng u disorderly house In four rooms of the Swan hotel. When given her hearing he eald that she had rented the rooms from the hotel proprietor, Peter Antokall, who, she says, had guaranteed her police pro tection. She was paying him $160 pop month rent and when tho arrest toik place was very much surprised to find that Antokall was. unable to deliver, his end of the contract. Upon the strength of her testimony Judge Foster released the woman an'l arrested Instead Peter Antokall, whoso hearing will take place Friday.
