After visiting the county Jail at meal

believed tho Judges were right and an
nounced that they will reject flll bids for

Individual applicants who had tried to

The Department of Justice has been In

of cortaln persons In connection with tha
obtaining of these leased from the Indian
council and has been asked to take such
action as the facts warrant.
The Indian council, three ot whose mem
bers were ordered out somo time ago, re
fused to obey Secretary Fisher's order In
regard to filling the vacancies, and this
was anothor cause which led to today's
action by the secretary.

oil lands, said to have been the most
favorable bid ever made for lease of In
dian lands, was turned down by tho tribal

"Tho Idea that beauty necessarily means
costly embellishment or decoration Is a
widespread mistake. Beauty Is simply
the certain result of using practical com

things City Engineer Craig talked for at
last Friday's meeting. An economically
operated, scrupulously clean, orderly,

"Tho question Is what is to be done
"Wo must realize that we don't know
much about It, and must learn. Our bad

"Our first effort must be made to get
light on the subject, to look Into what

thousands of dollars would have saved

Omaha has one great asset, and that Is
this opportunity to Invest a trifle in art
ounce ot prevention Instead of a fortune
In a pound of cure."
