HIE BEE: OMAHA, "WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 1913. GARBAGE INJIG HEW YORK Tat Picking in the Past for Various Favored Contractors. NEW DEAL TO SAVE A BIO SUM Colossal Scale of ttarlns;e Collec tion nnd Dlsposnl la Ilcqnlrrel to Copt Trlth Condition of Metropolis. lie proclamation calling on ths house holders to do their own separating. Evidently even our astute garbage con tractor have not known air there was to know About the business, even from their own selfish standpoint (Eleventh Artlclo of Series) The garbage problem perplexes all cttla alike, fiom big New York down. There In the metropolis, second city in the world, It stands forth as one of the most difficult of solution. Tet there, as else where, in Omaha no less than any, the matter of garbage collection and disposal lies at tho very root of scientific and sanitary Civic management. Why, then, has ao.vltil a factor been so long and woefully neglected 1 In sotno cases politics Is the answer, In other the horsher term graft, may be used; In all, Incompetency or Indltfereticu or both. ' And now, New York, like Omaha, seeks I improvement In Its garbage system. Just now it has a plan. in mind by which It i proposes to effect a saving to the city of 1 11,117.0)0 In five years. The Board of Katlmates has approved an agreement for that length of time by which a private Individual will pay the city HS7.0C0 for the privilege of removing the garbage.-, In five years under the present plan, Omaha would 'pay, Instead of feet paid, approximately $160,000 to have Its' garbage hauled, to say nothing of other incidental expenses mounting well up into th j thousands of dollars. This Is a good thing to keep in mind while' catting about for ' tho best method and 'wondering whether " we have It now or not. I Fnt Prptlt (or Contractor. , In New fork, as here. In the past the )cty has paid to have Its garbage hauled, j It has enabled politico)' contractors to imake as high as $200,000 a -year out of the graft But when Mayor Gaynor's administration came. Into office, this i graft, it seems, was cut off and garbage men were quick to seek the privilege of I hauling the garbage for nethlng and some jof them are said to have tnado as high I as $500,000 a year out, of the business even I on that far and square basis. Hut the garbage haulers sought to pick out their districts, knowing that frpm the more remote and inaccessible It would not pay to haul, so the city had to attend to that at a cost of about $200,000 additionally a' year, dumping the stuff In the sea or filling ud lowlands near the cltv. I .All these facts are of value as showing how utterly Indifferent great clUes have (been to the science of this urgently lm 'portent problem. Mo city can honestly 1 lay claim to well ordered sanitation that I neglects Its garbage disposal, and" yet j many are dishonestly making the claim right along. -When we come to meet this matter face to face, let us not be par Jslmonlous if we find it costs a llttlo to 'provide the right sort of system, for it costs more not to provide It ( Rentterlnsr l'lnnt Is Preferred. The plan New York contemplates is a sewerage disposal plant, which it wilt I have as soon as a suitable location can I be selected. Options have been obtained en a little Island In Jamaica Bay, near the city, and, while nearby residents i COmBlAin at the nrnsrrt nf i ovt ni lgai ba ataat or ground within smelling I distance, city offlolala in char nt ti.. situation say that the plant will be both sanitary and odorless and in no way of fenelve. In New York It Is said that fortunes nave oeen made by garbago collectors separating nnd sorting the matter they get and disposing of the various Ingredi ents. Tin cans, glass, rubber of varlbus kinds, old papers, rags, stones, hrlnka ,and other things come with the garbAg and everything Is sorted out to Itself. I The brick, stone, broken china, glass and .ashes are pulverised and made Into build ing ana paving; blocks at a big profit Hags and paper are ground Into pulp, nd so on, and big money Is made out of all these thlngr. Here in Omaha. It will be remembered, I we have had. great trouble at times bo cause householders would not separate 'garbage from other matter. The .private contractors, though getting the waste free of cost, did not discover that for tunes could be made put of separating It themselves, as was done lii New York. The fact If, that one reason for the fal ure of the original McDonald contract the dispute over this matter of separation, and the first McPtwmnn rrn. tract was menaced for the same reason. 'Health Commissioner Connell moro than jofc.ee ha to come to the rescue with pub- Statute Provide Storage Eggs Must Be Labeled as Such Good eggs aro very hard to get at the grocery stores at present. Moat of the product has .a decidedly stnrge taste and while some grocers Admitted weeks ago that storage eggs are already on the market, very few ore representing any of thir stock as such. Many house wives are making bitter complaints to their grocers and tho reply they get Is, "Well, those were strictly fresh country csgs." In spite of the new law which went Into effect some weeks ago IA the state providing a penalty for- representing storage goods ' as fresh goods, little ot no change con be seen In the grocery stores. No signs nre to be seen on the egg cases reading, "These Are Storage Eggs." The new law, senate file No. 64, is very speclflo on the point. Section 9 ot that law reads: "It thall be unlawful to tell or to offer or expose for sale, ar ticles of food which have been held In rtoragc, without notifying persons pur chasing or Intending to purchase the tame that they have been so kept, and It shall be unlawful to represent or ad vertise as fresh good which have been held In cold storage." Tho law also provides a ponalty. Kor the first offense the fine shall not ex ceed $100 and for tke second offense not over 11,000, or Imprisonment for not more than six months, or both. Thus far, no arrests have been made In Omaha and In the state even though man) customers have complalnva. Borne grocers assert that the handling of eggs at the commlstlon Rouses gives inem me storage lane, nnu tnat tno strong, dltagreeabje taste does not prove that the eggs ore storage eggs. The fact, however, remains that storage eggs are on the market, yet there ui no signs that represent them as such. CHAUFFEUR TO BE TRIED FOR RECKLESS DRIVING Joseph Fell, chauffeur, residing at the Albany hotel, collided with O. A. Hodges at K'fteenth and Douglas Monday even ing, knocking tho latter to the pavement Hodges was' attended by Police Burgeon Kochtman, who asserts his Injuries were slight. Fell will be given a hearing In police court Wednesday morning, where he Is charged by Hodges with reckless driving. - DRINKING MEN NOT WANTED Thoro !s no placo In tho business world for tho man who drinks.
