pointed by the School Hoard.
A special mooting of the school board was
held last evening with all the members pres
ent excepting Stacy. Chairman Waite of the
committee on buildings and grounds
reported that the removal of the partitions in
the High school , as proposed , would onlail
considerable cxpenso upon the district , and
ho wanted the opinions of the other mem
bers. Superintendent Sawyer reported that
ho oxpecteu forty or more now scholars
In tho" High school at the beginning of
next term and this would increase the total
attendance to such an extent that something
must bo dona to Increase the capacity of the
room. The chairman of the committee on
supplies was Dually instructed to plnco forty
new seats in the assembly room instead of
cnlargine the room as proposed. Chairman
Will to also reported that ho had placed $3,000
lusuranco on the Harrison street school.

an Investigation of the alleged Irregularities
In connection with ttio coal matter , made a
report , the substance of which was as fol
lows :

Shubert protested ncalnst that part of the
report which was calculated to cast a reflec
tion upon his integrity in weighing Iho coal.
Ho said that most of the weighing was done
by n clerk , and that ho had the cleric's
statement in his pocket. Hunter moved that
the report bo adopted nnd iho bill
paid as recommended. The motion was car
ried unanimously. Superintendent Sawyer
reported the enroll neat for the past month

nishing the coal supply for the remainder
of the year , Wallace giving a fl.OOO
bond for ttio faithful oerfornmnco
of his sbaro of the same. Wallace also
agreed to toke back all coal found lo be noi

Prof. W. M. ( Jroan of Shenandoah has been
in the city for the past da } ' or two looking
over Ibo locations whirh have been pointed
out by the representatives of the Board of

one of the highest ambitions of the board to
secure for Council DltilTs. The silo which Is
now looked upon wtlh the greatest favor Is
Manawit. An elTort Will be mndo to gel pos
session of the town itself and do away with
the pleasure resort feature of It , the expenses
necessary for the purchaseof iho ground
and the erection of the buildings to ho paid
bv the ciluens of the IJlulTs , Tnu cost of
this Is estimated at about f 10,000 , and the
task of raising nils sum will probably bo as
sumed by the Hoard of Tiado.
It Is Killed lhat a dllliciilty has arise' ) be
tween Prof. Groan and the citi/.ons of Shenandoah
andoah whl.'h is likely to cause the former
homo trouuln in making his iniended de

Problems tliat the General Mnnngci *
Will be AHko'l to Solve.
S. H. II. Clark , ecneral manager of the
tjnion Pacific and Missouri Pacific railways ,
is in the city , and is overwhelmed with busi
ness needing his attention , the result of an
accumulation of matters during the past two
mouths.
Ainong these are the dUputo between the
Missouri Pacific and the Burlington nbout
the use of the bridge across the
Missouri at Platlsmouth. It is expected that
this controversy and its dependent questions
will bo definitely settled In a conference with
General Manager Holdrego of the H. & M.
In Missouri Paciilc circles it is believed that
nothing will- come from this conference ex
cept to clinch the existing situation , and
uontlcnien who nro within earshot of thn
Llirone express the opinion that it will un
doubtedly result in the building of
another bridge for the Missouri Pacific.
The Board of Trade committee will also
call on Mr. Clark to urge n potilion lor a re-
duclion of the bridge loll on oast-bound ship
ments of merchandise from Omaha in order to
enable the Iowa roads to glvo the joobers of
this city as low a rate as Council Bluffs en- ,
loys. _

Mr. C. M. Kathbun of Atohisou , nsuporin-
iondcnt of the Missouri Pacific , wus in Oma-
: ia today and will go back homo with n lively
recollection of the esteem In whlctt hois held
ijy fellow employes at tnls nolnl. Ho was
called into the olllco of J. O. Pull-
.ippl yesterday morning , and as that
fcntloman arose with a preliminary "ahem"
: ho working force of the ofllco gathered
about In attentive attitude.
Mr. Pbillippi made a neat presentation
speech full of such stock terms as "friend
ship" and "ostoom , " and handed Mr. Uath-
uun a package as "a Christmas momenta of
; hu commercial department , appreciative of
the superintendent's cordial co-oporatlon. "
Mr. Hathbun begun to return thanks , but
when the wrapper of the package flow open
10 wilted. There was a lurid necktie that
would answer for a danger signal , and In it
was u pin calculated to fill Alvin Joslin with
envy. In the center of the pin blaicd a chunk
of glass as big as a Ivohinour , nnd it wus en
closed < u a circle of.smaller brilliants of Iho
same sort.

The Union Pacific's east bound passenger
train No. U loft the rails at Grand Island
vosterday afternoon and ran several hun-
Ited feet ou the ties bjforoconnng to a stand-
still.
Fortunately none of the coaches wore over
turned , and the principal damage waste
to the trucks and platform steps.
Mono of the passengers wcro Injured beyond
a shaking up , and they were Irunsforred lo
other cars for Iho Journnv to Omaha.
There seems to bo some mystery nbout.what
caused the train to leave the rails , but the
supposition is that there was something
wrong about a switch.
