All over the country, every community has known the Faker
who started with flourish of trumpet, indeed the brass band, for years was
a necessary adjunct. We had been taught to believe that men could not succeed who
built their business on falsehood and fraud, but we' have all seen that financial success at
least is possible. Perhaps has been possible is the better way to put it. We have faith to
believe that the public conscience has been aroused to such an extent that it will never
again be possible for men to succeed who are "void of all honor, avaricious, rash" nor
can "the daring tribe henceforth exploit their boasted trash," There are still a few left of
course that the head line fits but they are not getting very far the people are wiser now.
We are obliged to those who have commended and congratulated us on our stand for hon
est merchandising. One of those who wrote us recently hit the nail squarely on the head
when he said; "The faker and schemer must go, and his time is short." Thanks for your en
couragement brother. We are strong we mean to keep it up and we have already won.

The commotion occasioned, by her- out

she continued her tirade with unabated

"It would be a crime to give Bertha a

declared Chief of Detectives Mnloney,

Omaha's Garbage Problem;
What the City is Up Against
The Ferklstent and Judicious I uf
Newspaper Advertising Is the ltoad to
EtsineM Succtsi.
Whftn householders are asked to bunt'
their K&rbairo or otherwise dispose of It
during the month of December, because
nf lack of city money to pay for gather
ing and liuullng It during that month,
they should be told why.
Under the present plan the city council
annmnrtntftd IW.700 for partial collection
of garbage during the year 1315. From
the best Information avoliaoie. u appears
there are approximately 80,000 homes In
Omaha. This would allow I1.SS4 a year
per home, or a fraction over 2tt cents a
week. Under the old plan to have gar
bage hauled away cost an average for
t. to.iK. nf nt least 10 cents a week.
There are many more families than there
aro separate homes.
If we take the problem from another
angle-allowing that Omaha haa now 110,
000 people-the cost of removing and dis
posing of garbage In Omaha Is a fraction
over 21 cents per capita (.flS6) per year.
It has been stated above mat tne bp
nrooriatlon of K.7C0 is for only partial
collection of garbage. It could not be
otherwise, and every memoer oi me en
council was well informed to that effect.
The same amount did not work In IMS.
and a great many more people were iu i
served this year. Omaha is growing quite
rapidly. V
There was nd tlmo during the warm
weather when we did not havo numerous
complaints every day of accumulating
garbage. It was a case .of doing the best
we could with the money and means
available. The means of gathering and
method of disposal are antiquated. You
cannot hire the most efficient team for
this kind of work, unless me py
it.nllallv above the going rale, and this
is out of the question.
It must not be forgotten that, having no
other meins of disposing uf our garbage
at this time, the eily is In luck to have
the hog yard close at hand The govern
ment stopped tlx- ill from dumping In
the river several y.ius ago, and the city
las no way of getting t'.c stuff to the
farmers, as some cities d'-
The whole thing resales 'U to this.
Omaha has now reached the point where
soma proper and permanent plan must be
ndopted for collecting and disposing of
turbago and other refuse. Incinerators
garbage destructors have been adopted
as the solution of the problem by those
cities most forward In municipal effl
elenoy, Omaha wastes, perhaps, one
third of the total money spent for gar
bage collection because of "lost motion."
We sand wagons to every far corner of
the city to gather loads; then they slowly
wend their way to a distant destination,
the one plant where they can dispose of
theln,loads. Three small destructor plants
in different sections of the city or a largo
plant using the street and house ivfuse
for fuel would solvo a most vexatious
problem. The saving of money now
wasted would- pay for the destructors In
a few years, and we would abolish the
"dumps" that now are the cause of much
Justifiable protest, on ,the part of those
living In the Immediate neighborhood.
I have consulted with railroad men on
the question of loading garbage In tank
cars tb be hauled to a destructor plant.
They say this plan Is feasible. Then the
question arises. How shall we raise the
money to build the Incinerating plant
That question will be for the council to
decide at the beginning of the new year;
but public sentiment should be formed In
the meantime. The proper solution means
an lsnue of (100,000 of bonds, at least, for
a plant sufficient to. consume all the city
refuse and garbage, or the setting aside
of one-third of that amount to build a
mailer unit of the plant to prove Its ef
ficiency. There Is no odor and a very
small amount of smoke from such a
plant and a location can readily be found
for it where it could not be objected to.
I believe that Frof. Crowley, the city
chemist, can probably iioint out a way
to treat the elements left after burning,
so that a market can be found for them
