Omaha, Aug. 2. War hns not j et brok en out in Omaha as a result of tliu efforts of the A. P. A. to take charge of the fire and polioe departments, under a law which they claim went into effect yester day. Tronble, however, at noon was im minent. The commissioner of public lands and buildings and the attorney general met as an appointing board fit Lincoln. The governor refused to meet with them. They appointed Capt. Breaoh, Paul Vandervoort and Foster as police com missioners at Omaha. The three are A. P. A's., and well known political workers. The law by which they protend to secure authority deolares that the three strongest parties must have representa tion on the commission. The state law requires all commissions of thin character to be signed by the governor. The gov ernor refused to Bign them and the at torney general signed them. At 1:30 p. m., a special session of the oounoil will be held for the purpose of approving the polioe commissioners' bonds. As a majority of the council is A. P. A., this will no doubt be done. The commission will then begin business. All the members of the polioe and lire departments refuse to recognize the au thority of the new commission and an other force will be installed.

During the past week the wool market has witnessed a period of inactivity beyond that noted for some time. Although there have been numerous buyers in the market, the ag gregate and individual transactions have been of limited proportions. The reasons may be attributed to the fact that many manufacturers are sufficiently well sup plied to enable them to operate their machiuery for some little time. Values remain firm and those who were in need of more stock readily acquired it at the prices that ruled a week earlier. There are some, no donbt, who are holding off with the expectation that prices can not remain permanent. The sales in Boston, New York, Philadelphia and Chicago ag gregate 6,672,150 pounds, against 9,115,858 pounds a year ago. Items of Interest By The Wabash Sinn. Bulletin No. C.
