Which Is of direct Importance to all electric
light Interests. Tito causes which led to It
have boon developing ( or many months. Tlio
electric light Industry , so f.ir as arc lights aru
concerned , depends directly upon carbons.
The consumption of these c.irbons by the
various companies Is at present In the neigh
borhood of 00,000,000 per year. The mnrket
hn.s been supplied by two llrms In 1'lttsbnre ,
thrco or four In Cleveland and two in St ,
Iiouls. These companies two months ago
formed a coinhlnntlon , and the combination
took charge of all the factories. The prlco of
carbons w < w suddenly nnd without warning
put up from StO ana 813 per 1,000 to S20 and
$2.'i. It-was known that only one raw mate
rial was of much account In making electric
Hi-tit carbons. This Is the coke from polio-
leiim uttitha. The manufacturing , conso-
mtontly , of the petroleum COKO pro
duct was flceu to be the key to HIP
situation. The electric light men irot
together and talked the matter over. The
proposition was to tnko thn entire product of
coke of the Standard Oil company and man
ufacture carbons for theiusulU'S. Everybody
was found to be In favor of the movement.
One company subscribed for 1,000.000 carbons
bens per month. The others subscribed for
from ViO.uoo to 600,000. The subscriptions
wcroMl upon the basis of the old rates , the
cost of the larger size not to nxctx'd $15 and
the smaller In proportion. Thou a commit
tee was appointed to confer with the Stand
ard Oil company and the conference was
held yesterday. Tlio company's tlgtiro lor
Us entire coke product , 20,000 tons per year ,
was bet at 88 per ton or 8100,000 per annum.
The olectrlc light sjndlcate consider the
oiler and will accept It as soon as the various
parties Interested in their syndicate can lu-
nlfy tholr assent. This will eflectualljr de
stroy the business of the western companies.
It will cut elf tholr supply of raw material
nnd leave them no way out of tholt dilemma ,
Binco , while lha electric Unlit carbon amil -
cato will prob.ibly use not mom than half
of the coke product , they will still control It
all. The new carbon factory is to bo In this

The High School Commcnccmont ,
The opera house curtain rose last even
ing upon a high school raduntlui ; class
of twonty-nino young ladles anU gontlo-
men. It wasthu largest chisa which lias ,
under similar circumstances , ever assem
bled in Omuhn. In appearance it w.ai
certainly not inferior to any that hiw ap
peared in roootit years , and it may well
bo doubted if in intellectual strength and
varied accomplishments it may not favor
ably bo compared with any of these
which have gone before it. Nine of the
members were young gentlemen , the re
mainder yoiinp ladies , the namus being

Tim stage was set with the beautiful
palace arch , backed with the consurva-
tory. It wits ft peculiarly appropriate
letting , the members of the class appear-
ng to excellent atlvauttigo. The young
allies were nHire.it in muslin , lace , silk
and satin , nnd in tlio traditional white
each looking like the veritable tiugel the
average female graduate is supposed to
bo on the night she leaves nor books ho-
hind her. In the midst of these borulllcd
and bewitching creatures , the nine young
gentlemen sat. the envied of every youth
n the auditorium.
Miss lown Hall was the first essayist ,
: ier subject being "Charles and Mary
Lmnib as brother nnd sister.1' This essay
lisphiyed a deep appreciation of the
genial writer , the echo of whoso laughter ,
or rather that which he created , still
rings in mntiy hearts. It told of the
early life of the two , the mutual love
which existed between them , their long
walks , their visit to the grave yard , the
condition of the parents in their old age
and of the dreadful tragedy which made
tlio sister a matricide. This was followed
by n reference to his later life , and the
lavish eneoniums which great men had
passed upon him. notably that of Words
worth who said that Lamb "was good if
o'er a good man lived. "
This essay is chielly remarkable for its
warmth of admiration nnd the Christian
eeling which actuated both brother mid
sister , nnd an appreciation of the literary
work of the poot. It was appreciated ,
nnd the following little maidens , Ida
Newman , Emma Moor. Edna Robinson ,
Ada Waiigli , Ella Hreekonridgo and May
Maynard , deposited ( lowers in profusion
at the feet of the essayist.
Augustus K. Uetweiler discoursed upon
the "Genus Homo. " Starting out with
the assertion that every endeavor to
comprehend the animal kingdom from a
scientific point of view makes modern
geology the basis of its conclusions , he
held that scientific study must aocopt the
phenomenon of adaptability ; that the
versatility of the organs of plants meets
the variability of their external circum
stances and accommodates them to
changes that are always taking place. He
then briefly traced from the era in which
was the simplest expression of human
life that of the protozoan , then the
vertebrate type which swarmed the seas-
he hold it was not impossible that oven
man may have aupeared here , surviving
nil the changes which had taken place
since the Mosozoiccra. When the earth
was ready for man , the latter appeared
upon the scene , and just as man now
guides the development of animal nnd
vegetable forms , so from the highest
brute forms , guided by a Superior Intelli
gence , man himself has developed in a
( lotiuito direction and for a special pur
pose. He then traced mans progress
from a crude state , and detailed the
soul's outward expression in works of art
and l v the study of tncsn works for
both use and beauty. For the an
imal , evolution was perhaps complete ,
but for the man , it has yet muchto _ ac
complish. Ho closed a referoace to
mau" ' aspirations to place himself in
harmony with his environments , and by
making reason and the will of God to
prevail , becoming himself the arbiter of
his own destiny. Man harmonized with
nature , with God. the human became di
vine and the cycle was complete.
As may bo inferred , the subject was a
heavy one. It was well treated by the
young gentleman , whoso delivery was
inclined to the forcible and effective rather
than of the ornate stylo.
Ven Wells recited "Jimmy Brown's
Santa Glaus" in n manner which enter
tained the audience.
Nella Mover played "Lo Gazelle" as a
piano solo quite acceptably and was lib
erally rewarded with flowers.
Carrie E. Howcli essayed "A Study of
Ralph Waldo Emerson. " This was a
fervid eulogy of the celebrated divine. It
detailed his early life , his poverty , strug
gles , studies , ordination , and the sympa
thetic and magnetic influences which ho
created by his preaching. Ho was not
an imitator of Carlisle , but a leader in
many ways. He exerted an influence
most potent and grateful. Ho was a
n loyal American and a thorough Now
Euglunder , and as patriotic a citizen as
The delivery was r.ipid , but the compo
sition was very good.
Victor llosowator essayed on "Recent
Explorations. " There was a force inherent -
horont in man which urges him on to
discover now things. The impulses which
spurred the Phonoolan explorers now in
cites those of our times. The rewards to
bo put forward to induce men to endure
the hardships of discovery wore commer
cial advantages , gains to science , glory
and louown. At the beginning of the
century low parts of the earth remained
unexplored. Nothing was loft but the
dark African continent , in the south , nnd
the icy Arctic laud in the north one
clothed in luxuriant vegetation , the latter
half devoid nf Ufa or means of subsist
ence. Worthy was the commander who
lia/tirdcd his life in such realms. The
name of Stanley would always be con
nected with the foundation of the Congo
Free State , and Grecly and Lockwood
would be remembered as having in a great
way cleared the route to the north pole.
The Immense wealth of the Congo basin
was being opened to the w6rhl. Human
beings have actually trodden within six
degrees of the north pole. The profits of
theio enterprises nru distributed to all
persons. Was it not an honor to our na
tion that : it has aided in those undortak-
ingsf The ftunu of tho.so discoverers ia
ours , and the adventurous spirits of fu
ture times should remember that the ro-
uown of those lias been obtained only by
great labor , illustrating "Heights charm
us ; the paths which load to them do not. "
The delivery was earnest , manly and
graceful , and was wujmlv appreciated.
Miss Sudia Sohleningcr's absence ct.uscd

Mary Ludlngton read an intarcjiUnK
and moral dedaotio eway on "Ttta Holy
Grail , " She characterized the middle
ages as the wonderland which divide * the
ancient clvlll/atlon from the modern ,
that long , dark interval whoso silence
nnd mysterious doom are only such as
herald the coming of the dawn , She
then spoke of tlioso of that period who
sot out in quest af the Holy Grail , at the
same time repenting tlio legend of the
cup , which was supposed to have been
that used by the Savior nt the last supper.
One of the modern Ideas ot the signifi
cance of the quest of the grail is that it is
the search after truth. To Una this it
was not required to go , like the knights
of old , on a perilous quest , nor to immure
ourselves in convents , for the gr.iil is
within our homes , within our overy-day

and very acceptably rendered. The

Uecie Johnston as wcro indeed , all the
speakers of the evening , in whom greater
individual excellence was noticed than
in any similar previous class.
Mabel Balcombo delivered an essay
upon the "Italian Influence on English
Poetry. " It was a flowery consideration
of a poetic idea , the warmth of which
seemed to have been received from the
same influence which she claimed bright
ened , colored and vivilicd not only the
writers in England from Chanecr to Dryden -
den , but oven created n halo which still
hovered over the rich lines of Byron and
others of oven more recent date.
Toward the close , Miss Halcombo's de
livery was in keeping with the nature of
her subject. She retained the attention
of her audience , but a faulty intonation
at the close rather destroyed the charm
of her earlier work.
Miss Anna McCasruc played "Uouto-en-
Taine" as a piano solo , and was liberally
Miss Nina Bausorinan recited "Old
Margaret1' with a great deal of success.
J. W. Broach orated on "Tho Amer
ican Army. " The peace of America ha <
been unbroken by the excitement of a
great war. Our means of defense
have been neglected , our mili
tary stations hare fallen into
decay , and a nation once mighty
in war has almost forgotten the glorious
traditions of former pi owess. Ho spoke
about the danger to bo apprehended from
sirch a state ot attaint , and said tlint it
had boiiu suggested that Britain might
unset the acts ot 1812 and 1817. Tlio
bloody battles in the streets of Pittsburg ,
Cincinnati , Chicago and other cities
warn us that at our liresides lurk the ele
ments of danger to the republic. It
would be madness to oppose raw militia
against trained soldiers. The regular
army had been decreased in 11 shameful
manner. Now was the time to honor
that arm which in time would
rank with the legions of Homo , the bat-
tallions of Napoleon and the phalanxes

"Tho History of Chemistry as Told by
the Elemental Genii , " was the subject of
Miss Emily Dorn's csjay. In it she per
sonified the elements , and told of the an
noyance they experienced when they
found man was encroaching upon them ,
the cloud of mystery in which they envel
oped themselves , and finally how each
one of them in turn was led from his
native seclusion a slave at the car of hu
man civilization. The idea was happily
conceived , consistently carried out , and
the effort was delivered with the interest
of a lady devoted to the chemical analysis
of the a < rents to whom she had given cor
poral habitation and a uamo.
The effort was a pronounced success.
The graduates were then given their
President Points made a few remarks
and the audience retired.
Prof. Franko's orchestra rendered sev

St. Catherine's Academy.
The commencement exorcises and tenth
annual distribution of prizes took place
yesterday afternoon , at St. Catherine's
academy , on Eighteenth street. This
school is exclusively under the charge of
the Sisters of Mercy , and is conducted by
Sister Mary Bechmans ns principal , and
eight teachers. Very Rev. Father Shatlel
presided in the absence of the bishop ,
who was unable to attend. A largo
number of reverend gentlemen were
present , Previous to the distributiou of
prizes a programme consisting of vocal
and instrumental music and salutatory
addresses of welcome was executed in an
admirable manner by the young ladies
of the academy. Whilst the several por-
foimances evidenced a high order of tal
on t , the Marcho Brilliantc piano duet , by
Misses E. Creighton and M. Perkins , was
especially worthy of mention , The salu
tatory addresses to the bishop nnd clergy ,
read by Miss M. McGavock , was delivered
in a most effective manner. In one of
the rooms an exhibition of fancy work.-
consisting of embroidery and'crocheting ,
work , was tastefully displayed , and a
goodly number of water color paintings ;
uud crayon drawings decorated tftewolu. "
All these bore testimony to the skill of
the pupils , as well as to the eflleiency of
the teachers. The church veslmonts.

Tlio 1'nclllc School.
The Pacific school is one of the oldest
school buildings in the city. Beginning
with a small strticiuro , it lias from time
to time been added to until at present it
is quite a formidable looking building ,
Notwithstanding tlioso additions it is
still inadequate for the growing district
in which it is situated , and it lias been
found necessary to rent three rooms in
the vicinity to provide for the defect. The
school lias the disadvantage of being
located on a very low site
and from a sanitary point of view the
situation is anything but a healthy one.
There lias boon some talk recently of sell
ing the property and building on a higher
site , but no definite aetiou has yet been
taKcn in the matter. Miss Margaret Mc
Carthy is the principal of the school.

The Loavcnworthjifhool is one of the
finest educational buildings in this city.
The rooms are wolf lighted , aud the ven
tilation scorns to be Satisfactory to those
who are most dlre ctly interested in it.
This , however , refeft only to the lirst and
second lloors. The" Basement is not in
cluded. In the lattc fit.tco there are now
two classes , Fonnjprjy there were four.
Two of thorn , now tjjujjht by Miss Brown
and Miss Johnston , ro located in a frame
building adjoining/ part of thn latter
structure originallywarved in conneotion
with old Brownelli 'hall. ' It fell Into
disuse when that inSJtfution bloomed into
au edifice of strength and beauty on
Tenth street hill , and was purchased by
the board of education , moved to its
present site , an addition built to it ,
and was then occupied by the classes men
tioned. They had been sought in their
subterranean retreat by the dampness of
the earth and the rain storm , and com
pelled to take flight to preserve their
health. As a consequence of this hcglra ,
before other quarters could bo provided
for them , an interregnum took place in
which the children lot three weeks' of
school. The basement rooms now in use ,
it is claimed are not so objcctianablo as
wore the others , but are biiuicieutly dis
agreeable to create a du&iro on the part
( if the principals and others , to h&vo
them related to their original uses &s

J. Wood , Informed the visitor , enrolled
0')3 ' ) scholars this year. The attendance at
present la about COO , while the average
attendance during tlio year lias been
about 530. Miss Wood sajs that the at
tendance this year. Is noticeable for the
number of native Omahans and Nebras-
kniis. in proof of tins she referred to a
long list of names which substantiated
what ehij " had said. There
are twelve teachers in 'the
two buildings referred to. Miss
Greonlco has charge of the seventh A
and B with forty-two children. The lead-
lug members of this class are Elmer Carl
son , Julia DavN , Ixnns Frcitschkc. Her-
ber Morse , Charles 1'niuk mid George
The classes of the sixth and seventh A
taught by Miss M. H. Lucas consists of
thirty-eight boys and girls , though , in the
winter they numbered nbotit forty-live.
They have done the work of two classes in
the. time ordinarily assigned to one.
This claos is specially commended for the
excellence In rondlnjr of a largo number
of its members. The most prominent
scholars are Eva Burns , Ada Stone ,
Emma Levi , Charles Croinbto and Henry
Miss Ida L. Huniington's classes arc
tlioso of liftli B ami sixth A , which have
an average attendance of about foity-
hovun. In the estimation of the teacher ,
nearly all of the scholars rank equally
well nnd have done excellent work
throughout. In proof of this she refencd
to tlio fact that they had made three
classes instead of two during the year.
The leaders designated were ; Lyman
Chaflee , Emma Valion , Ella Savngo ,
Edith Schwnrt/ , Fred Knickerbocker ,
May Lawrence , Marion Sehibsby , I'unnlo

less than the attendance during the win
ter , having boon reduced by a number of
her able-bodied scholars "going to
work. " The le.u'ous uro Marie Kennedy ,
Frank Teola , Jennie Hempel , Frank
Behin and Edith Burns.
Miss Abbio C. Leighton is in charge of
the fourth A class , which now consists of
forty-six members. It formerly com
prised about sixty names , though many
have sineo been transferred to other
schools. Miss Loighton's opinion of her
cherubs , even if not of the most modest
degree , seems ; certainly not unmerited
by them. Several of them have not been
absent from class during the year ,
and all of them piescnt an
inviting and intelligent appearance.
The leaders are David Whiting. Sadie
Leisetirmg , Lloyd Billman , Alabel Full-
riede , Elsie Schwartz , Alex , bwanson
and Othalia Karbach.
Miss McDonald , of the second B , was
referred to as the arti.st of the school ,
and the walls of the room bore evidence
of her handiwork. The thirty members
of the class were engaged in language
work , telling on their slates the etory of
Moses in tlio bullrushos , a colored pic
ture of which hung upon the board , and
from which the little ones drew their in
spiration. The BIE : representative was
strontrly tempted to publish a coupjo ot
the stories , because they were nicely
composed , and the penmanship was
really excellent. The more prominent
children were Mary HasmiiBson , Hey
Penfold , Dollie Speneor , Bonnie Jones ,
and \Villio McElroy.
Miss Johnson's class is the third B. It
is located in the fragment of Brownoll
hall above referred to. In it are forty-
four children , two of whom are colored ,
and one of these is among the brightest
in the room. Sometime ago he contested
in arithmetic with a white lad , and came
offvictorious. . The leaders are Joseph
McKinney , Birdie B.ilach , Lester Lowe ,
Richard Goetty , and Kichard Welty.
Miss S. E. Brown is ono of thu refu
gees from the damp basement. She has
sin vivod malaria and other ills , and now
feels perfectly contented in the shanty
provided , although improvement might
be made in both light and ventilation.
The loaders are Florence Brown , Mamio
aud Annie Coslello , Willie Vaughn and
DMiss Maggie Read is another of the base
ment victims. She has charge of the first
A class , which was at recess when the
man called. In this room there are
forty-ulna children , who , to judge by
their samples of kindergarten work , are
bright , industrious and a credit to their
instructress. Miss Rend is spoken of as
a most capable teacher. She is a gradu
ate of the Peru normal school , in tills
state. Her leading children are Ole Ole-
son , Ethel Bums , Milton Rend , Tillie
Liebler and Floyd Bourn. °
In the basement also , are the classes
of first nnd second A , taught by Miss
Olive Hubbard , consisting of thirty-six
children. The most advanced scholars
are Christian Hanson , George Read ,

with sporting rabbits , demure male und
female human urc.Uurew , flower * nnd
borders. There are forty children in atten
dance , though there have been as many
as sixty-five present at one time during
the year. Just as the BEE man entered ,
