The second effort at a school board meet ing was made yesterday at 4 p. m., and re sulted in a degree of success just exactly equal to the former effort. Howard failed to put in an appearance. Some of the members are a littte suspicious of Mr. Howard. According to the present count the board is composed of twelve members, but there are two vacancies, leaving ten in active service. Three of these are reported to bo out looking after some heat for the coming year for the new school buildings. This leaves "seven are we" an exact quorum, includ ing Mr. Howard. All the efforts to get a meeting since the trip started by the build ing committee have failed, owing to the absence of Mr. Howard. Some of those who have given the mat ter enough attention to be on hand for business, assert that the building commit tee must have had an understanding with Mr. Howard to keep shy while they were absence, so no business of any kind could be transacted. Each time a meeting has been called a special mes senger has been sent to notify Mr. Howard always failed to succeed in getting him to attend. It is considered the committee before leaving concluded the board might jump at a conclusion and decide what sort of heating system should be adopted be fore they had the matter fixed so no quorum could be found at any time and hence they would not bo out-generaled. The plan or the scheme as estimated ha3 caused some of the members to become quite impatient. They claim there are many things that should be attended to. A change of grade for third ward building is tiecessary; a change in foundation raisin it about one foot. The First ward build ing as claimed needs to be put down a few inches according to report and much work needs attention. Work is being done on five of the new buildings and the Burton four-room building is being plastered and some of the members say not one of the building committee has been up to see how the work has been done. The build ing is thought will be ready for use in a few days which by the way is legarded as quite fortunate for considerable incon venience has been reported from that sec tion owing to the faulty building being used. The board, it is said, may attempt an other meeting this afternoon and insist on Member Howard being present. Some suggest an officer ho sent after him and see if it is possible to have a meeting. It is not known when the absent members will return. The last heard from them they were going down toward Point Comfort, Virginia, where they expected to remain some days looking over the relics of the campaign . It is suggested that in the event no meeting is held until their return the fellows who have been compelled to dance will have a change and some one else will be invited to engage in the exercises. ' STKLU7T KAIMVAY INJUNCTION. The hearing of the Wichita Straet Rail way injunction was continued yesterday afternoon before Judge Reed. Mr. Harris concluded the argument for the plaintiffs at four o'clock, when the court took the case uuder advisement for several days. Mr. Harris in his argument went over the history of the street railway trouble nun iedly and briefly reviewed tho argu ments that had already been presented. After this he held the case up in several new aspects allowing the light to shine uninterruptedly tin ouch its many compli cations. He contended, that the same principles which would allow the injunction to be dissolved would allow an other road not only to parallel but actu ally coincide with every line at present laid in the city. In fighting for the rights of his company against infringment of this nature ho was also fighting for tho Riverside company against infringment by some new company. It seemed to him that if the Riverside company had any legal rights down that street it might have waited until its franchise had been pub lished and then gone to work in the day time. Although the defense claimed that it was an unimportant matter, presumably to themselves it was a matter of vital importance to his company. At the close of the argument Judge Reed stated that according to the practice of the court the case would naturally bo rested, but that considering its importance he would be pleased to listen to anything the attorneys might wish to say. The plaintiffs said they were satisfied to rest the case as it stood. Upon being asked by tho court Judge Sluss said that Mr. Harris has cited cases and authorities which it would be impossible for him to answer without giving them some study. Judge Keed then waited a few minutes longer, and as no one availed themselves of tho opportunity, said that his mind was about made up, but considering the im portance of the case would with-hold his decision for several days in order to verity his opinion by istl ctiou. IN 31KMOHIAM.

Resolved, That we extend our sympathy to her bereaved husbaud ami child, antl commend them to the tender care of the Great Shepherd of Israel whose ej'o never slumbers or sleeps, remembering that in a few fleeting years we shall all, one by one, be called to pass through tho dark valley aud shadow of death to meet the loved ones who hae only gone before to that clime where sickness and sorrows of earth are unknown, and the reunion will be pure, perfect, satisfying and eternal.

Downing opened last night at the Crawford Grand in "Virgiiiius" to good business, "lgnomar" will be given at matinee today and the "White Pilgrim" tonight. It may be comforting for some of the readers to know that Mr. Downing was once an amateur, occasionally taking part in amateur performances in Washington. His friends did not tell him he was 'rocky" however, or threaten to throw vegetables at nim, but they recognized in hiiri the genius that has since developed itself and ranks him already, although but little past thirty, among the foremost tragedians on the stage. Mr. Downing in au interview made him self responsible for the bare fact only that he began as amateur. Ou the advice of friends he took to the stage as a business fourteen years ago, and made his first en gagement with John Ford of Baltimore. After working very hard for four years he began playing leads and afterwards sup ported Mary Anderson for four years. Starting out for himself his first venture was "Tally Ho," but soon realized that the legitimate tragedy offered a better field and began with Sparticus. He said: "I think a great deal of 'Virginius' and do not think there is a nobler or grander character on the stage.'" Considering the hard contest for pre eminence in Mr. Downing'? profession his success has been phenominal and he is a young man to command such a large share of fame. "STARL1GUT." At Crawford Grand Monday Nov. 23. It is useless to inveigh against ''Star light" which has already won nopular favor in two seasons. Moreover, "Star light" pretends to be little more than a comedy show with the brilliant Jarbenu coruscating as the central star. And, verily, Jarbeau does coruscate. There is a flash, a glitter, a sparkle 111 her rapid, dashing, spirited action that is like the successive gleams of an agitated jewel. She is all vivacity, irrepressibly lively, working hard at all times as though animated by an electric charge, and her heels are as nimble as they aro impudent when she surrenders them to the license of dances peculiarly characteristic of Jar beauj Exchange. GILMORE BAND. This great combination ot musical forces which is considered the finest of its kind in existence, will be heard at Gilmore's festival at Crawford's opera house, Tues pay, Nov. 20, afternoon and evening. "Mr. Whitney, of course, was 'splendid,' and sang as no other basso in the world can sing. The rule against recalls scarcely restrained the audience from demanding repetitions of his arias." Ex. BURLEIGH COMBINATION, The Burleigh combination, A. R. Wit hers new attraction, will play their return engagement at the Crawford Grand on Thursday November 2S, for three nights and a graud Thanksgiving matinee, pre senting Thursday night the great comedy drama "The Planters Wife," Friday night "The Black Spider," Saturday night T. II. Glenny's dramatization of Hugh Con ways famous novel, "Called Back."

Louise "Yes, Agnes, I have caught a beau With these blond tresses fair; Because I cleanse them oft, you know,"" With Ivory Soap, as pure as snow, The soap without compare." A WORD OF WARNING. There are many white soaps, each represented to be';just as good as the Mvory1 ;' they ARE NOT, but like all counterfeits, lack the peculiar and remarkable qualities of the genuine.

Time was when about the only chance a man had to get a suit of clothing -without paying four prices would be to haggle for an hour, and finaby a spirit of compromise or ratigue would induce the contending parties to agree. Differ ent nere, and it is our proud honor to state, we were the pioneers in this system of one price. We have gone ahead or any of our compbttltors, and mark all our goods In PLAIN FIGURES. True, there are some of the "How-much-wlll-you-give" class of clotniers,those relics of "barbaric clothing days," but their days are numbered, and ere many moons have come and gone, they will be laid away and have joined the silent majority.
