-Discussing the high School
. l'roposlUon
The members or the School bonrll went
slipping around Welnulay nigh until they
arrIved at the ofco 01 W. H. Thomas where ,
they proceeded to have a star chamber ses- :
sion a la city council. An effort was made
at frt 10 make It appear that It vas simply
a meeting of the commIttee or the whole but
before the evenIng was over this hal been
lost sight or , and some or the entries In the
clerk's minutes show that some thIngs were
done which could not have been done at a
meeting or that sort.
The question or building a new school
house on the Fifteenth street school grounds I
came up for IICUBslon. anll It was decided
that this was necessary. I was decided to
submit to the voters or the school district
the proposition of Issuing $12,000 In bonds to
raise the money to carry out the project and
to submit another preposition to ISBU3 bonds
In the sum or $8.000 or r to be used In
grading 10wn the high school grounds ac
cordIng to the plans already set forth In
The lice . Mr. Thomas opposed the Ilea 01
grading ( lawn the High school grounds , on
the ground that the expanse would be as
much ! as , It not moro than , enough to huy
a new location ; If n new building should bo
built there the one now standing woull
have to be torn down and practically lost
whereas Ir a new location for the lush
school should ba selected the present building -
Ing could be Used as a grated school for sev
eral years by redistricting the city.
The sUbmlslon or a Proposition to erect
a Hhh school Is not contemplated this year ,
but If I the grading Is ordered by the voters
the new buIlding will be located , when buIlt ,
In the rear or the present HIgh school building -
ing which can then be used until the new
building Is rely for occupancy.
The president and secretary made their re-
port to the board on the subject or preparing
a register of the voters. Dy the last general
assembly a law was passed giving the women -
men the right to vote on all mater munIcIpal -
Ipal and relating to the school distrIct In
which the Issuance or bonds Is concerned. A
petition was preeented front n. N. Whit-
tesey asking that the board engage him to
make up a list or tie registered voters. The
president and secretary to whom the mater
hat been referred at a previous meeting ,
stated that although the state superintendent
or Instruction did not seem to be able to de-
cide the point from what they could learn
from other sources they dill not think that
the board had any authority to appoint a
board or registration . but must make up Its
registratIon list from that prepared for the
city election.
Inasmuch as at both city and school elec-
tons there art propositIons to be voted upon
with reference to Issuing bonds , It now ap-
pears that the board or registration will have
to regIster the names of women as well as
of men. Whenever anyone comes up to vote
wIth a dress on the election beard will ' consider -
sider the dress prima fade evIdence of fem-
Inl , and the vote cast will be put Into a
separate box In order that no woman may
vote for any candidate , a thIng which the law
gives her no right to do. EIther the regis-
tration lists will have to be made up In this
way or else a special dispensation vl have
to be made whereby women may vote wIthout -
. such favoritism
out registering. Why any avorltsm
should be shown the ladles , however has
not been explained , and there Is not much
probability of the special dispensation being
The registration scheme however will be
attended with some diiflcultles. Ever lady
presenting herself to the bard will have to
tel her age , which , of course , will ' be as
embarrassing for the lady as for the mem-
bers ofthe . board who have to ask about It.

The Oldest Inhabitant enjoyed himself

to get out of the cold. Twenty.slx degrees ,
Was the lowest temperature that was noted
and even that record was surrounded by a
haziness that detracted very much from its
reliability. John Co'le , who lives down nCr
Manawa como all the way up frosts the
cypress groves and banal plantations that
surround his home to tel about how his
thermometer registered 24 degrees below zero
when he got up. At the Terminal company's
brIdge the record was 20 below , and at the
Omaha and Council Bluffs company's ofce
It was the same. At 7 o'ocloek at the power
house of the Council Bluffs Water Works
company on Broadvay near the river . the
temperature was 18 degns. The thermometer -
eter at the School for the Def has In the
past ben considered , one of the liveliest
hustlers for cold weather In the vest . but
yesterday I displayed a most remarkable
lack of enterprise , and the lowest mark It
reached was 18 below.

MINNEAPOLIS , Feb. 7.-The first witness
In the Hayward murder trial this morning
was lions Darlow. Uarlow hal been pres-
ent In the basement of the Ozark flats when
Ulxt cut the T rail In two for larry Hay-
ward. lIe was put on by the state to corroborate -
roborate Bhixt's story or that transaction and
did 50 without contradicting Dlxt In any Important -
portant reature. - lIe hall helped Dlxt cut
the rail in two and heard hayward scold
Dlxt for cutting It Instead of simply' bendIng -
Ing . It. On cross-examination an admission
was drawn front hIm that ho had served a
term In the workhouse.
Claus Dlxt was agaIn put on the stand
and Mr. Erwin , after long questioning as to
detals"or his story sprang a sensation. lie
oslel Dlxt If he had not upon November 2
gone to the Arnold hotel on Central avenue
with two other men and rented some rooips.
"That's the biggest lie 1 ever heard , " exclaimed -
claimed Bhlxt .
Mr. Erwin questioned him closely but
Dlxt professed Ignorance about the alleged
occurrence The hotel register was Intro-
ducell In evidence and Erwin asked Dlxt I
the signature or "Arne W. Teller . Wally
City " was not written by hm. : Dlxt denied
utterly that he had ever seen the regIster.
These questions point to a theory of the defense -
tense that the murder was the work or a
gang of green goods men and that Hayward
had nothing to do with It.
The sensational episode or the day came
after court had adjourned this morning.
County Attorney Nye approached Smith and
made his sensational declaration. lie asserted -
sensatonal declaraton.
serted pint blank that the entre story was a
fabrication and that he knew all about how
It had been put up.
"Do you know anything about It , Nye ? "
asked Smith "For I do deny that I had any-
thing to do with it. "
"ow , mark you John Day Smith . " and
the counsel for the state shook his finger
threatenngly ! In the race of the attorney . "I
know you and I believe you to ha a man or
honest intent but Just a sure as you live
this thIng Is going to be exposed. I will
drive every pin In this thing right straight
to the' bottom to show Just how this thing
was done , and you can depend upon It. "
Nye's taco was as white as the wall , and it , ,
was patent that he had been enraged by the
tactics of the detense. The county attorney
asserted strongly that the story beng : put In
to show collusion on Bhixt's part with green
goods people was an inventIon and a disgraceful -
graceful attempt to defeat justice .
Hayward was jubilant over the turn or a-
talrs. "I am glad to see " said he , "that the
truth Is beginning to' come .out. "
There was an episode In the court room ,
, thIs afternoon when ' Harry Hayward for the
first time since his arrest saw his brother
Adry , who bad conressed. I was a strange
sight Harry looked rul In Adry's face , wIth
a smile , and as I In obedience to the sum-
moos , Adry rose hair reluctantly . and the
hands of the two brothers . pitted agaInst
each other In the struggle for I life met In
a clasp. That was all . Harry took his seat ,
apparently unmoved Adry sat down again
and spoke to the - deputy. A moment later the
trial commenced again. Mr. Erwin concluded
his cross examination thlsafternoon. , He out-
lined tim deensC In the questons : asked
Blixt . which showed that the defense will
try and fasten the crime on a gang of green
gOQds dealers who wanted Miss Olng out
of the way because she knew too mucb.

" 1 the clahn set up by the Drltsh : Is
correct there Is a prospect that Juneau will
come withIn the limits or the territory
claimed by them In their description of the
boundary. This description says that In absence - I
sence or a mountain range the boundary line i
shall be wIthin ten marine leagues or the ;
coast line . Tie American Idea Is that the
line shall follow the meandering of the bays
and Inlets.
"Tho Idea Is , from what I can learn from
William Oglh'y , who has charge or the Cana-
dan : surveying part , and who was one or the
Pioneer surveyors or the Canadian movement
engaged In making a report on ! he Yukon
and Its resources some ten years ago , that
time . Dominion government Is now anxious to
find out the mineral wealth or Yukon vale ) '
In order to construct a good wagon road 01 a
narrow gauge road rrom' time . sal water coast
to the heal waters or the Yukon river Last
September Oglvy with a surveying party 01
nine CanadIans started from Juneau for the
head of the Taku Inlet to make a prelmlnary :
survey and a topographical report 01 the
Taku route for the constrbctlon of a road to
the head waters or the Yukon river
"Among all classes of people In Alaska I
Is universally the opinion that I England
succeeds In getting this strip or territory
from the United States government It will be
a steal pure and simple and another victory
for the aggressive policy pursued by the
Drltsh. : "
Mr. Carpenter also says the American
boundary survey parties were negligent In
their work , not sending parties Into the Interior -
tenor but merely making observations from
field glasses from the decks or their steamer ,
while the Canadian surveyors scaled the high
coast ranges to the yery summit of the
mountains In many cafes subjecting the
men to Imminent danget or life and limb In
order to secure exat data which would
naturally mallo and 1ark.a boundary hue.
Mr. Carpenter says this sending of Oglivy's
party In midwInter Info lie most dangerous
part of Alaska to report nnthe , Taku route Is
significant. Ogl\y will l ! return , by the mid-
die or March to mae a I hasty report to
Ottawa . and then return to finish tie boundary
survey. I' ! ,

Saturday , Independent or the acton of the
house this afternoon on the Springer bill. The
net result or the negotiations , whIch have
been In IJrogress during the last two or three
weeks , Is sId to be n practical agreement
among the London . and New York bankers
and the president for an Isue or $100,000.00
4 per cent bonds on an Interest basis or at
least 3A ! per cent Ir not greattr . or late
the Lndcn bankers have expressed n lllln-
clination to handle any part of the Issue unless -
less the New York bankers took part or It.
They do not seem to share the confidence ot
our own pep ' e that there was no question
but the bonds would be redeemed In gold Ir
the stpulaton ; was that they were redeemable -
able In coin , as they now Insist that the New
Yorkers should have n dIrect mil personal
Interest In the redemptIon or the bond In gold .
and very recently they informed Messrs. ! -
mont and Moran that under tlO other condi-
tons wi they accept any hart or the Issue.
This condition . It Is s . has been accepted
by the New York bankers amid I now seems
almost certain that OOOO.OOO wi be offered
for sale to our own people , and the other
$ & 0.000.00 solll In London.
