Itas also concluded to hear the evidence against Officers Arnold , Ilrady , Bower and Clark , who were reported as hav ing been drinking with the' Thurston UlfleH on the occasion of their flag presentation on the night of May 28. Sergeant Sheep admitted disobeying the orders of the chief because he thought It necessary to leave several policemen at the Coliseum , although the chief had In structed him to send the officers to their beats when , the exercises of the cvpnlng at the Coliseum were over. Ho had been asked to leave the officers by Captain Scharff of the Rifles and said to Captain Mostyn when ho returned to the station at 3 o'clock that the guards were having a pretty good time out there. Mr. K. C. Hunt , reporter for The Bee , tes tified that ho was ut the Coliseum In the early morning when the disorder Is alleged to have occurred , and that ho believed all the officers had been drinking , while Brady and another whom ho did not know were drunk. Several of the guards were also In this condition and some of them told Hunt that they were having a good time drinking beer and eating Ice cream. Mr. Hunt said that Senator Lobuck and Mr. Neazy of the First National bank had told him that their families were greatly disturbed lute at night by shooting and the firing of guns In the Coliseum. Leo Forby , corporal In the Rifles , said the beer was there , but he saw none of the policemen drinking , but the guards drank freely.

( ratifying Itcports .Made nt Their Monthly Alrotlii ) ; Yostorduy Afloiiioon. The Woman's Christian association held Its last monthly meeting for the summer yesterday afternoon at the Commercial club rooms , The treasurer read the monthly report. The receipts aggregated $710.20 and the ex penditures $451.74 , leaving n balance of $2C4.4C. This Is exclusive ot the receipts from the concert by Blind Tom. This con cert netted $50.75 , and It was decided to use this sum to furnish the Young Women's home. The committee for the Young Women's homo reported that $212.10 had been the re ceipts for the month , leaving a balance of $55 over the expenditures , against a deficit last month. The homo Is still $90 behind. The report showed a decrease In the num ber of lodgers , but this was caused by cir cumstances beyond the control of the com mittee. Some of the girls left town and others left to find better rooms. The com mittee considered this no reflection on the home , as Itx purpose Is to furnish cheap boarding and lodging for girls whoso means do not permit them to get better places. The committee on tlio lodging house handed In a report which showed that the lieu"1 * was In a flourishing condition. The matron visits the depots at train time to meet any girls or women who are strangers In the city and who need assistance am ] ad vice. Much good ttork has been done dur ing the past month. Eighty-six lodgers have been received , and twenty-one applications for work , twelve of which have been sup plied. A large number of donations ha\e been received in cash , furniture and supplies. The matron will wear a uniform next month. The committee on the Burt .street home reported that the home shelters at present' eight old ladles , all of whom are In good health. Quite an amount of provisions and furniture had been received during the month. The receipts in cash were $37.50 , with a balance of $4.31. Mrs. Joseph Mlllard had been especially active In donating and t > ho was voted the thanks of the association. Miss Street offered the use of a building opposite the Hickory school for an Industrial educational school. This Is In the midst of the Bohemian and German settlement. She suggested that the charitable nature of the school be masked and that a .nominal sum be charged per lesson , 3 or 5 cents. She thought It would be advisable to start \\lth sewing only as an experiment , and If It should bo successful other brunches could be started. The following committee was ap pointed to Investigate : Mrs. Crelsli , Mrs. Tracy and Mrs. Haner. Mrs. Tllden then brought before the meet ing a new scheme to swell the treasury of the association. It Is proposed to hold at the Charles Street ball park a "Fairies' Carnival" on Juno 19 , 20 and 21 In conjunc tion with the Young Women's Christian as sociation. One thousand children from 5 to 1C years of age will take part. Committees were appointed to push the. scheme. Twelve ladles will bo In charge of the children dur ing the performance. Lemonade will be ser\ed during the play. A' ' vote of thanks wna given to the trustees and young ladles of the Flrjst Congregational church for the rooms and services during the Blind Tom concert. CropBunml Tree .Silver. Melville D. Landon ( Ell Perkins ) passed through Omaha from California yesterday. When asked about the prosperity of the Pacific slope ho said : "They have had a great drouth In Cal ifornia until lately. The wheat crop Is a half failure all over the state. The late rains have ruined the dried grass. Wool is low , meat Is cheap , and fruit Is a drug In the market. Fruit raising has been over done In California. . " "How about beet sugar ? " was asked. "That has been Increased , and the beets nro looking splendidly. California is the home of the beet. The winters are warm and the sugar manufacturer has no trouble from frost. In fact , ho has the whole fall and winter to gather the beets and manufac ture the sugar. " "Speaking of free silver , " said he , "I have not found a bank president In Arizona , New Mexico , California or Colorado who Is for free silver. I find editors at Boise City and Helena who are for free coinage , but no thoughtful bankers. I found free coinage In Mexico that is , I found silver with no gold under It , but the Mexican dollar was worth 49 cents. Mexico , like China and India , has lost half Its wealth. " "Do prices change In China and India I with the price of silver ? " "No ; strange to say , silks In China \\hlch cost a Mexican dollar n yard live years ago can now bo bought for the same piece of silver worth 48 cents. The Indian and Chinaman Is the loser by free coinage. This Is why Tom Reed would put an extra tariff on these very cheap manufactured goods made In the Orient. Their low wages have dropped one-half , and their phenomenally low wages begin to pull down our wngeh. This is why Reed would put a discriminat ing tariff against 1,200.000,000 halt civilian ! Africans , Indians , and Chinamen , whoso silver Is worth one-half as much as ours , and whose wages have gone down u halt. " "Ho\v Is California politically ? " "It Is solid against Cleveland , and sp are Arizona , New Mexico , Idaho , Nevada and Wyoming. The other night In San Fran cisco theater they threw pictures tiqm a magic lantern onto the skirt dancer. When Cleveland's face appeared It was hissed all over the theater , while Harrison's face was cheered. McKlnley's face tot the people crazy , and amid a bedlam of joy , they called It back again.
