The protest against the application for
liquor license to Fritz Blocmer , 1601 Leaven-
worth street , was heard before the license
board jestOrday" afternoon , The question
mainly considered was that Of the applicant's
good faith In publishing his liquor notice In
the World-Herald ( without exercising due
diligence , as required by law , In ascertain
ing which paper had the largest circulation
In the county. The protestants , The Uee
Publishing company , submitted the evidence
of James II. Davis , who testified that he had
called the attention of IJlocmer to proof that
the circulation of The lleo was the largest
In the county and that his words had not
liceu given consideration. D. Roaowatcr
gave the evidence that Illoemcr had said In
J'ls hearing that It would be preferable to
gho ? 1.000 to the World-Herald rather than
$10 to The Dee. Other testimony was heard
tending to show that iBlocmer had been Im
pelled by other motives In publishing his
notice than a deslro to comply ivith the
The applicant himself tool : the stand and
Bald that he had made an honest endeavor
to ascertain the relative circulations of the
newspapers of the county. Ho admitted ,
however , that ho had not applied to their
bcvcral ofllccs for proof of circulation , but
had based his knowledge upon the opinion
of a neighboring saloon keeper and upon a
resolution rendered by the board. G. iM.
Hitchcock was heard In regard to the con
tents of the morning and evening news
papers published by the World Pub
lishing company. Ho asserted that the
editions were delivered to different sets of
subscribers , but admitted that the substance
matter In them mas not the same. IHe
acknowledged that telegraphic and market
reports In the evening paper wore entirely
now to that edition and similarly to the
morning newspaper. The decision In the
case was deferred.
Tlio following application * for liquor
licenses were issued , there being'no protests

next summer tlm people will seek such pleas

to got nn opportunity to study the resources
of the wcat close at home. The attendance
at the exposition will be nearly as large , If
not fully as large , as that of the World'j

propriations for the ptirposo of making cicd-
Hablo dlsplajs of their resources. The last
legislature refused to make an appropriation
for this purpose , but a vice coresident for
Washington Ins boon appointed.
'Tho largest and best building In the ex
position will be devoted to the mining In

Her mines arc in their Infancy , but aie
destined to bo ono of the most Inportant of
the state's resources.
"Tho east should be Informed of the wealth
of this state through n largo display. Two
cost would not bo large and the returns
would bo Immense. The Chamber of Commerce -
merco should advocate this matter , and the
money necessary to defray the expenses
should bo raised by popular subscription.
The other resources of Washington hbould
also bo given a place , but I consider the
mines of the most Importance. "

A highwayman got a llttlo too close to the
fire last night In attempting to rob Mrs. Ada
Oarley , within a block of the police station.
IIo was captured , owing largely to the prompt
work of Mrs. Carley , and the stolen prcpertj
Tlie attempt was made at S'30 o'clock , just
as the woman was passing the alley on
Fourteenth , between Howard and Jackson
streets. Mrs Carley had been visiting a
friend and was on her way home , which is
at Fourteenth and Howard streets. She ea > s
that the cobber came out of the alley and
without warning threw his hand across her
mouth and with the other tried to wrest
a pocketbook fiom her hand. Mrs. Carley
tried to scream , but was unable to make a
sound , and the street wan deserted. S5io
clung to the oocketbook , however , and the
robber , who Is a powerful man , was obliged
to hurl her to the ground before he obtained
It. He then ran west through the alley and
Mrs. Carley hurried to the pollco station and
gave the alarm. Detectives Sullivan and
Hudson took up the rtiase and searched the
buildings and outhouses across the street
from the station. Their arrival upon the
flccno was so protrpt that the highwayman
was obliged to hunt cover and to k up lodg
ing In a srcall outhouse adjoining tbo alley.
Ho was discovered here by Detective Hudson
rmd made no struggle. Ho assorted his Innocence -
nocenco and said he- had just stopped In on
his way down town. Mrs. Carley was able
to Identify him positively , however , and other
circumstances were conclusive of tils guilt.
The outhouse was searched and the pocketbook -
book was found. The contents , $1.50 In silver
cmd a souvenir ot Cuban liberty , had been
taken out and thrown away separately , but
the whole was finally recovered.
The hlRhv.aymati proved to be a fairly well
dressed joung man about 20 years old. He
gave the name of James Bolyn , and talj he
lived near Thirty-sixth and Davenport streets.
In his pocket was a membership card of
Horseshocrs' union No. 4 of Chicago , 111. ,
made out lii the name ot Michael Lander.i ,
There were also the business cards of sev
eral horseshoeing firms In Chicago. Bolyn
has a smooth , bojlsh face , with well formed
features , and Is evidently an athlete. The
woman ho attempted to rob is a clalrvojant

Active preparations were commenced yes
terday for the erertlcci of the Ice ra'.aco on
the exposition grounds. Manager Svvobo and
the contractor who will construct the palace
have decided upon the main points and the
active work of construction will bo com
menced at onco.
The palace will bo located on the Island In
the center of the lagowi , covering the full
width of the Island and about two-thirds of
the length , The whole structuio
will bo made of Ice of crystal
clearness , which will bo secured from the la
goon Itself. The principal dlulculty the man
agement will have to contend with will bo
the heat of the sun's rays during the middle
of the day , but the Ice palace will be pro
tected from this disintegrating force by
means of a covering which will bo placed
over It during the middle of the day. An
extensive s > stem of electric lighting for tlio
Ice palace and lagoon has been arranged for
and colored Incandescent lights will Illumi
nate the scene.
The attractions nt the lagoon for the after

To the Hdltor of The IJco : In your Issue
of January S "Inquirer" nsks the following
questions : " 1. Does the nineteenth century
end on December 31 , 1000 ? 2. Does the twen
tieth century begin on Jnnuniy 1. 1001 ? 3.
II.ivo 'we alicaily used the year ISflS , or has
It lust begun'/ "
Tiio questions nro very opportune , because
It la vciy Incomprehensible to some folks
hew so much doubt exists in the. minds of
inanv relative to the subject. To my mind
"InqulrorV three questions are met by the
following simple ntutoment : The nineteenth
century will end nnd the twentieth century
\vlll begin nt midnight between December
31 , 1000 , nnd January 1 , 1S01. The year 1'JOO
will bo the last yenr of the present century.
The reason for thin la clear ; It l' beftuso
them la no year 0. The llrst centurv. there
fore began with the year 1 , A. 13. , and ,
consequently. Included the yc.ir 100 A. D.
The nineteenth century accordingly Includes
the whole of the year 1000 A. D. Respect

turned yesterday from a five weeks' trip
through the cast. He spent moat ot the
tlmo In Philadelphia , Now York and Bos
ton. To a Dee reporter ho said : "Through
out the cast ono observes unmistakable
signs of returned prcsperlty. In the cities
along the Atlantic seaboard I met a nunv
her of furniture manufacturers and furni
ture dealers and they all declared that It
had been a long tlmo since business was * so
good with them. I also heard many In
quiries about the Tranemlsslsslppl Exposi
tion , H has now become a well known In
stitution among the people of the cast and
they really talk about It quite familiarly.
In Now York ono scarcely picks up a news
paper without seeing some reference to the
exposition , cither lit the dispatches from
Washington or from the west. The decision
of the postal department to Issue a series
of postage stamps for the exposition Is re
garded as a big boom for the show by the
people ot the cost.
"While In Now York , I signed a contract
for the occupancy of the Ames building , Six.
tcenth and Farnam streets , and the People's
Furniture and Carpet company will move
In there on February 20. It is not generally
understood how extensive the work of re
modeling the two big1 fronts ot the building

This certainly speaks well for the city , the
superintendent of schools and the teachers.
At the present time the enrollment is 2,800
and sixty-one , teachers nro emplo > ed. South
Omaha ranks third In the schools of the
state. Omaha of rourso comes first with 305
teachers , Lincoln next with 140 teachers
while South Omaha Is third , Fremont fourth
Ueatrlco tilth and Nebraska City sixth.
The growth of the South Omaha schoo's Is
shown by the enrollment for the last four
jcais. In 1S94 the enrollment was 2,200 ; In
1895 It was 2,512. In 1S9C , 2.CI5 and at the
cloee of the jcar 1S97 It was 2,802. With the
opening of the spring term on April 1 at
least 100 more pupils are expected. Super
Intendcnt Munro seems to think that this
number of childrenwtio / have never attended
the public schools before will start in and ho
estimates that by the close of the present
jear1 the enrollment will be nt least 3,000
The schools. Superintendent Munro eajs ,
are now suffering for lack of sufficient
high school acconunodatlors and he asserts
that It the city grows as much during tbo

more school rooms will bo needed , or In other
words , accommodations for 300 pupils. This
is In addition to the needs of the High
Those who are Interested in the school
sjstein here assert that for $35,000 a high
school building largo enough to last for fif
teen joara can bo erected. By doing this the
graded schools would be relieved , as the
High school takes up the room of 200 pupils.
All of the members of the Hoard of Educa
tion admit the necessity for better school
accommodations , but It seems a hard matter
to Induce the people to vote bonda for a new
building. There Is no Indebtedness ngalnst
the school district here , no bondo having
over been , voted for the support of the schools
or for the erection of buildings. It la thought
that an effort will bo made to bring the
proposition to vote $30,000 in bonds before
the people before long in order to relieve the
crowded condition of some of the schools.
There Ins been a decided Improvement In
the health of the public school pupils during
the last few weeks. Illness preventedmanj
from attending during November and De

City .Attorney Montgomery Is just now en
gaged > ln looking up the legal side of the
question of releasing a portion of the guaran
tee of the California Asphalt and [ Petroleum
company. At the time the contiact for pav
ing Twenty-fourth fc'ircet from A to Q street
was entered Into with this company it wan
stipulated that the city should retain 15 per
cent of the con'.iuct pi Ice , or ? 1G,500 , as a
guarantee that the company would keep the
pavement In good repair for five jears from
the completion of the work. Owing to legal
complications with which the company had
nothing 'to ' do the pavement was completed
in section. ' , the northern portion having been
completed some months before the southcin
end was finished. The paving company was
willing to allow the guarantee to commence
from the final completion , of the work , and
ot course 'this ' was satisfactory to the city.
In arranging for the guarantee the paving
company deposited with the city treasurer
bonds of the paving district. A poitim of
these bonds , amounting to ? 7DO ) , matured
c October 1 last , and the city facnt the
money to New York to redeem tiiom. As
the bonds were being held on the guaianteo
the fiscal agency could not release them ,
and neither the city or the paving company
is deriving any interest from this amount of

for hunJreds of dollars by means of damage

up In court It was found that the city led
no defense , all record of the case having
been lost , mislaid or something of the sort.
Only recently Major Ensor took itcps to
prevent any moro Iccsea of this kind , and
now when a person flies a claim for d images

a defective sidewalk , street crossing or onmo-

was filed the mayor employed two physicians
to make on examination and return a written

when the case cornea up In court the icpoit
