HousemaldH, domestics, kitchen serv

be known by, are becoming a luxury In
Omaha, both In the matter of tho diffi
culty of finding them and the high wages
they command. Want ads have recently
appeared In the columns of The Bee
In which persons have Inquired for serv

by The Uee Saturday revealed the fact
that these aro not rare enses, but that

Even in the cases where the highest
prices are paid for servant girls, the
girls are no longer required to do the
washing. Either the washing Is sent out
or the washerwoman comes to the bouse
once a week to do this work.
The servant girls now-a-days aro
largely foreign born girls. There are, of
course, some American girls, who still
go Into the kitchens as scrvaitts, but
these aro becoming fewer and fewer. Tho
foreign girl when she first arrives Is, of
course, not fit to earn the highest wages
as servant, but It she learns her work
readily she soqn commands good wages
The Bee's representative found one case
of an Irish girl, who landed In Omaha
some years ago. 8ho vera to work as
a house servant at $4 per week. She
worked hard and learned her duties well.
She saved her money and In a tew

Miss Marie Odlorne, secretary of the
employment bureau ot the Omaha Young:

by The Bee, whether the Blrls In de

getting less wages than the servant girls,
might not get the sama wages If they
cared to bare their arms and put their
fingers Into dish water.
"No," replied Miss oaiornc. "These

II. Brlley has applied for a pardon to
Governor Morehead, notwithstanding two
members of the Board of Pardons have
recommended that he receive no clem
ency at the hands of the governor.
Brlley was convicted In Sheridan county
of killing Robert Ferrln, January 30, 1911,
and was sentenced to twenty years In
tho penitentiary. Brlley hod been In
trouble In Iowa and had served a four
year sentenco for shooting a man. He
had a homestead In Cherry county at
the time of the murder of Ferrln and
one day In going to his house found
that Ferrln had been there, as he claimed,
and disturbed his belongings. A quar
rel ensued, which resulted In Brlley fir
ing threo shots at Ferrln, none of which
took effect. Later In the day the latter
came Into a store where the former was
and the quarrel again started resulting
In Brlley shooting Ferln dead.
Dr. Butler, of the pardon board, refuses
to recommend clemency In the case, be
lieving that Brlley Is a degenerate and
should be kept In prison. In this ho Is
joined by Mr. Maggl, another member ot
the board.
However, Mr, Ylcser, the third member
of the board, believes that Brlley was the
object of persecution on the part of
Ferrln and that fear of him caused him
to take the action he did,

Preliminary plans for the Fontcnelle

company at a meeting Saturday. Much

tails might Involve too great expense In
the matter of building, nnd theso were
referred back to tho architect for further
The sketch plans met with unanimous
favor, It being agreed that the drawing
promised a beautiful building In every
way, ono thnt will be a splendid feature
of the new Omahd. The Illustration from
Mr. Kimball's drawing shows the exte
rior of the hotel, viewed from the corner
of Eighteenth and Douglas streets. The
plan calls for a building sixteen stories
high, with a massive domo roof. The con
struction Is to be steel, red face brlok
and terra cotta. The building will oc
cupy a ground rpace 132 feet on Eight
eenth street and 154 feet on Douglas, al
though on tho west end on Douglas street
a scatlon twenty-two feet wide will rise
only four stories, this to Insure always
plenty of light and air for tho rooms on
the west side of the main building. It
will contain 320 rooms, singly and In

The main entrance will be on Douglas
street, but on Eighteenth street the en

most convenient for the business men
who may go there for luncheon.
Omaha contractors will be naked at
once to submit bids on tht, work, based
on plans and specifications to bo fur
nished by Architect Kimball, and these
bids will be considered at a meeting to

within the 3S00,0Q0 limit set by the board
for the skeleton construction work, the
contract will be let and work will be
started at once, as It desired to have
construction under way as soon as pos
sible. Under tho present plans, the main din
ing room wtl be on the third floor, thn
first story being given over to the grill
room, storage rooms and other purposes,
while the next floor, which will bo
reached from the street by tho two main
entrances, will contain the office, the
lounging and writing rooms, the bar and

for the guests. The arrangement of the
upper floors Include plans for additional
smaller dining rooms, banquet hall, con
