Lincoln, Neb., Oct. 7. William J. Bryan urges President Roosevelt to call an extra session of congress to deal with the coal miners' strike, and sufriarests five measures which he should recommend for passage. They are: First A law establishing a national board of arbitration consisting of three or live members, to consider and report on all controvetsies between corporations en gaged in interstate commerce and their employes. The law should ' compel the board to act whenever either party to the controversy demanded it. Second A law abolishing government by Injunction. Third A law that will discriminate be tween the natural man created by the Al mighty and the corporate giant created by legislation. Fourth A law taking the tariff off of coal. It has been generally supposed that anthracite coal was on the free list, but most of the anthracite, which comes into competition with our anthracl-.e is of so low a grade that it is taxed under our tariff laws. Fifth A law which will prevent rail roads engacred in interstate commerce from operating coal mines, except for the purpose of supplying fuel for their own engines. ' Mr. Bryan says that the president un derstands that his political future depends largely upon the stand he takes in this great contest between greed and human rights, but if he is a brave man he will take the people's side and risk the hos tility of organized wealth. He conmenels the president for taking the initiative in the White House conference, and says he cannot stop now. If the present laws are not sufficient he declares he must call congress together and enact new laws. M ARRIES 101'KG GIRL. Greenwood County Doctor 'Takes Hia Bride from School. Eureka, Kan., Oct. 7.

Discussing Signor Boni's work in connection with the recon struction of monuments in Venice, a dis patch to the Times from that city by way of London, says the Church of St. Mark, the Doges Palace, the Procuratie V ecchie, the Zeeca and the churches of Santa Maria Gioriosa. Die Frari and St. Giovan naje Paolo need prompt attention If catas trophies are to be averted. In St-. Mark's there is a crack on the great arch of Apocalypse and the arch sags downward almost a foot. It Is ex pected that it will be necessary to remove all the mosaics of the arch and that the brick wall behind them' will have to be more solidly constructed. In the Doos Palace diagonal lesions are visible and it looks as though the brick work were tumbling outward. In the Preocuratie Vecchle there are serious cracks caused ' probably by the wholesale demolition Of Internal Walls and the stacking of heavy goods In the rooms above the collonade. Regarding the general subsidence of Venetian soil, Signor Boni believes that the land has sunk at the rate of about three and one-half inches a century. The zecca is in a rickety condition from top to bottom. FIRST WINDOW GLASS. Work Has Begun at the New Plant at Cofleyville. ' Coffeyvllle, Kas., Oct. 7. The first window glass ever blown in Kansas was blown here Monday in the plant of the Kansas Glass company, just completed. The plant, which consists of tweleve pots, was built in record breaking time. Work commenced on the building July 2. The officers and workmen are all from Elwood, Ind., and the plant is a co-operative institution, nearly all the skilled workmen being stockholders in the concern. The failure of the nat ural gas in the Indiana field has com pelled the factories in that locality to seek new locations. The plant employs about seventy skilled workmen, whose wages equal those of five times the number of men employed in other lines here. The Commercial club and gas company are figuring on the location of several new factories within the next few weeks. HEARST'S PLATFORM. New York Editor Formally Accepts Nomination for Congress.

Williams Status to Be Decided Soon. . : THE BASEMENT CLOSED Unsanitary Rooms In. Grant School Won't Be Used. Problem of Crowded Schools Is Growing More Serious. The board of education, or rather part of it, met last night. The meeting was late in cominsr to order. It was nearly 9 o'clock before the jokers of the square table had assembled a quorum. E. E. Roudebush was engineering a political meeting; at the First Christian church and J. Willis Gleed was , to speak there. They were possible recruits. By il o'clock their nresence was a. Teality. F. E. Mallory was offlciatlngr at a wed ding and he was therefore quite impos sible. Various other members had. var ious other things to -demand - their at tention. Each thought the rest could get along without him. It was some thing like a late minstrel Derformance at the theater. It was almost 9 o'clock when P. I. Bonebrake began the tradi tionary ceremonies by readinjr the bills to be allowed. This is a mere matter of form, which on account of having been established as a precendent, has to be carried out. Mr. Bonebrake read over the bills as fast as he could. No one interruDted him or paid any atten tion to him until he read something about J. Albert Davis having in a bill for tuning' pianos and removing the wheeze from an orsan. "Whose that?" queried Rodgers. "Davis, J.. Albert," replied Bonebrake. 'Ought to change his name in the mid dle, hadn't he?" 'What's he charse? -- - 'He charges $3 for tuning- an organ and $1.50 for tuning a D'ano." 'Better change the organ to a' piano. hadn't we?" said Rodgers. Mr. Bonebrake then proceeded to read a bill for $1,310.15' but no one seemed to know or care what it was for. Superintendent Davidson made his re port. He announced that all the edu cational machinery of the city was run ning along smoothly except at . Grant school, in North Topeka. where three basement rooms are in use. Ke said that City Physician Judd had Just no tified him bv telephone that the board of health had ordered the basement rooms vacated until the rooms were dry and healthful. The board accepted the order at once and the basement rooms will be closed until the blue mould dis appears from the walls of the basement rooms, or a new building is erected in North Torieka. ... Superintendent Davidson has been urging the board to provide' more room in North Topeka for the past two years. He has oDposed the use of basement rooms. The board will be unable to provide school rooms for the children in the three basement rooms at Grant un less a new building is erected. The pro position for a new. 12 room building in North Toneka. will be submitted at the November election. Dr. A. S. Embree, chairman of the teachers' committee, reported the list of available teachers quite small, and he recommended that it be made up of ex perienced teachers instead of graduates from the city schools. W. H. Wilson, chairman of the buiia- mg committee, reported among other things that the cupalo of Van Buren school is a roosting place for pigeons. The effect of this announcement was startling. The board immediately de cided to dispense witn tne cupaio. J. E. Stewart, the clerk of the boara. then began the trouble by announcing that he had investigated the charge that W. G. Williams, the colored member of the board, lives outside the city. Stew art described the meets and bounds of Williams' residence. The question re earding Williams was, was he in or out. The. board neara the evidence, it was found that Washington school. which is in ' the city limits. Is east of Williams' residence at 1007 Washington street. 'Thev told me I was in the city lim its," said Williams. "I was told that the city limits were zo reel from my nouse and that across that line I could keep hogs." ......... I move that we build a hog-tignc fence to keep the members of the board in the city limits, ' said Mr. Gleed. 'Where do you' live? askea ur. Embree. "In the city, I think." replied Gleed. The motion was made by Mr. Gleed that the serious matter of residence be referred back to the committee and that Wilder and Bonebrake be added, and that the committee be instructed to take legal advice.. It was decided in the wunams case, unofficially, for the time being, that he was out and would have to come in. Then the . matter was forgotten for awhile until Mr. Gleed called it up again. Mr. Williams made a lengthy speech, and wound up by saying: "I would like to know where I am at. That will be decided at the next meet-ins- ., : .-'.""'.'.: Give Coal Importers Benefit of Doubt.

The Gazette says: Mr. L.

Abrahms and his partner have been in Emporia for some time doing an extensive business in selling Call- iornia on stocKs. Yesterday Abrahms returned from Manhattan where on Saturday he had taken in considerable money from the sale of oil shares and was about to go west last night. He got on the train and when it had gone as far as West street he discovered that his pocketbook, which he carried in his inside coat pocket, was missing. There was nothing for him to do but to get off, as the pocketbook contained his railroad tickets. The train stopped and he returned to the depot dead broke. Mr. Abrahms remembers that just be fore he got on the train two rather rough looking men in the crowd jostled him, and it is now evident to Mr. Abrahms that one of them "touched" him.

COMING DRAMATIC EVENTS Exciting incidents follow each other fast in Joseph Arthur's pastoral melodrama "Lost River," which had a run of six months in New York to financial and art istic returns that placed the play in the front rank of its class. Lost River. Ind.. is the place of action. The characters are fashionable visitors to the famous health resort near by and the uncultivated na tives of that remote region. The scenery depicting Lost river valley is good. The panoramic effect shown in the bicycle ride for life, as well as the view of the Baden toll road with its massive toll gate, are scenes in which two of the most thrilling episodes of the play take place and which aroused the utmost enthusiasm from New York audiences and critics. "Lost River" Will be at the New Crawford tonight. The comedy drama, "A Millionaire Tramp." comes to the New Crawford on Wednesday night. The third act shows not alone the exterior of a country thea ter, but the interior as weli. witn audience seated, curtain up and performance in progress and the effect has seldom been accomplished heretofore.

Mrs. Hayes, of Boston, Mass., in the following letter tells how she was cured, after everything else failed, by Lydia E Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, Mrs. Hayes First Letter Appealing: to Mrs. Pinkham for Help : "Deak Mrs. Pinkham: I have been under Boston doctors' treat ment for a long time without any relief. They tell me I have a fibroid tumor. I cannot sit down without great pain, and the soreness extends up my spine. I have bearing-down pains both back and front. My ab domen is swollen, and I have had flowing spells for three years. My ap petite is not good. I cannot walk or be on my feet for any length of time. "The symptoms of Fibroid Tumor given hi your little book ac curately describe my case, so I write to you for advice." (Signed) Mrs. E. F. Hates, 252 Dudley St., (Itoxbury) Boston, Mass. Note the result of Mrs. Pinkham's advice al though she advised Mrs. Hayes, of Boston, to take her medicine which she knew would help her her letter contained a mass of additional instruc tions as to treatment, all of which helped to bring about the happy result. "Dear Mrs. Pinkham: Sometime ago I wrote to you describ ing my symptoms and asked your advice. You replied, and I followed all your directions carefully, and to-day I am a well woman. " The use of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound entirely expelled the tumor and strengthened my whole system. I can walk miles now. " Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound is worth five dol lars a drop. I advise all women who are afflicted with tumors or female trouble of any kind to give it a faithful trial." (Signed) Mes. E. F. IIates, 252 Dudley St., (Roxbury) Boston, Mass. Mountains of gold could not purchase such testimony or take the place of the health and happiness which Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound brought to Mrs. Hayes. Such testimony should be accepted by all women as convincing evidence that Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound stands without a peer as a remedy for all the distressing ills of women ; ail ovarian troubles ; tumors ; inflammations ; ulceration, falling and dis placements of the womb; backache; irregular, suppressed or painful menstruation. Surely the volume and character of the testimonial let ters we are daily printing in the newspapers can leave no room for doubt. Mrs. Hayes at her above puJss will gladly answer rny letters which sick women may write for ruiler information about her illness Her gratitude to Mrs. Pinkham and Lydia E. Pinkham's Vogetabl. Compound is so genuine and heartfelt that she thinks no trouble is to great for her to take in return for her health and happiness. Truly i3 it said that it is Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com pound that is curing so many women, and no other medicine : don't for get this when some druggist wants $5000 FORFEIT If w cannot forthwith produce the original letter! and nignatorei ol above testimonials, which will prove their absolute genuineness.
