A lively dispute , which threatens to lend to a wnr among local musicians , has arisen between Kalian Fr ko imil Julius Meyer , respectively managers of the Philharmonic and Musical Union orchestras. The trouble was occasioned by the fact that both gentlemen are anxious to furnish the music for the Elks ball , which comes ofT on February 7. 'It was the intention of the committee at first to lot Franko have the con tract. However , ho asked $50 for twelve musicians , while Julius Meyer agreed to furnish the same number for $25. Ac cordingly tlio agreement was made with Manager Meyer. This lunclo Manager Franko wrathy , very wrathy. lie was met by n reporter for the UKB yesterday , to whom ho declared that Julius was trying to cut down the price of good music , and that ho would never , no never , reduce his price one cent from $50. "Its an outrage that ho should make such a cut. I can't ' aflbrtl to do it , and \you't,1 " ho added. Mr. Franko evidently changed his mind later on. foryesterdayaftoruoon ho wont , to Mr. Miner and ollered toplayfor noth ing. When told that the Musical Union liud already boon engaged , ho asked that 'his ' orchestra bo allowed to play every alternate dance number. This would furnish the Klks twenty-1 I ' four musicians for the prlco which has hitherto been commanded by an orchestra of six men. The committee will meet at once to consider Mr. J'ranko's proposition , which it is thought will bo accepted. Mnnngcr l-ranko is determined to push his new organisation to the front , while Manager Meyer is equally determined that the Musical Union shall not bo crowded out of first place. As already intimated , it is probable that these feel ings of ioalous rivalry will cause a lively war and a drop in the price of orchestral imislo. A UEI'OUTOUlAIj JIAOI3.

It is going out ot style , " said a barber to a reporter the other day , as ho was clipping the scribe's silken tresses , "hike other fashions , " ho continued , "it has had its run , and now must take a back seat. It will prob ably bo revived in the future , because it is undoubtedly a cleanly , comfortable and good-loouing method of dressing the hair. " "What is to bo the popular method of cutting the hair ? " "Cut fairly short , parted very near the middle , and banged. That is , that is the eastern stvlo. Whether it will bo adopted extensively in the west , I don't know. Very few young mon in Omaha will wear their hair that way. They think it's too clleminatc. And they are right. Hut it's style. Tlio pompadour will doubtless bo worn a good deal by young men who cannot wear their hair any other way. or who do not care for stylo. Yes , that is the most dilllcult style of hair-cut to execute prop erly. Few barbers can thoroughly mas ter it. " _ Conkllni ; Place , On Lcavenwortn street. A NEW niSl'AKTURE.
