Yost , president - dent of the Nebraska Telephone company , has been making an effort to secure cheaper service for his patrons , alhough the Omaha service at time present rate 18 sold to be less than that of Minneapolis and Chicago. Mr Yost did no receive much encourage- lent from the o cllls or the Del company at Boston , although his local patrons heartily concurred In time suggestion , and urged him to make a determined effort to Immortalze himself as a big hearted benefactor of the . dear public. Mr. Yost went east about ten . days ago and returned yesterday with the Intelligence that ho was successful , and that talk would bo cheap on telephone wires on and after April 1 'fho reduction will be permanent , Time rate In South Omaha was reduced recent ) ' , and will remain the same. Hereafter the rates In Omah will be $18 per year for any tellhune In residences wihin time city limIts . The llresent system nets as high as $84 per year In some Instances - stances for this senlce.

The first of the suits which were promise upon the filing of the will of the late Emily B. lespeler about a week ago was commenced - menced yesterday In the distrIct court by the filing of a petition by Mrs. Regina Morrow , a sister of the deceased , asking to be awarded $4,000 out of the estate As was state In The Boo al the time the will was filed , that Instrument Ignored all of time bled relatives of the deceased , and made Colonel George Hespeler , a stepson the sole heir and administrator of the estate without bonds. Time existence of the will up to the morning of its arrival wa not even suspected , for a careful search of Mr Hespeler's trunks and erects was made by her relatives soon after iber death. The will , however , lad ben deposited In Canada by time deceased before she left her home there , and Its appearance was a cause of dismay to the relatives here. No end of suits were talked of , and Mrs. Regina Marrow - row set time bal roiling yesterday. I In her petition Mrs. Morrow alleges that on January 29 , 1894 , she commenced a suit for personal damages against Mrs. Hepeler and recovered a verdict of $ ,000. Mrs He- peler's attorney time very next day flied a motion for a new trIal , wihout , however , having notified either Mrs. Morrow or her attorney , and on the day folowIng argued the motion , and assured the court that time opposing attorneys had been notified , but that they did not care to contest time case : further. The verdict was set aside. Mrs. Morrow alleges that for a period of one year she believed thal time court had set aside the verdict In the exercise of Its judicial discre- ton , but then learned that such acton was . taken solely by reason of the fraud perpe- trated upon the court by Mrs. Hespeler and her attorney. Wherefore , she wants $ ,000 worth of Mrs. hlespeler's estate. Olsen , lm..1 8100. The suit against Max Meyer on account of time failing walls of his building on Eeventh and Farnam Itre2ts , which was destroyed by fire In 1889 , has at last ben terminated by the Jurors In Judge Hopewell's court , before whom It was trIed , they brInging In a verdict - diet against Meyer for $ . The suit was brought by Charles H. Olsen . administrator of time estate of Edward Olsen , deceased I was claimed by the plaintiff that Edward Olsen , who kept a gents' furnishing goods store next to the burned building , had a stock valued at $2.000 , which was totally destroyed by the falng of the walls of the I building : also that the good will of the busi- ness which Olsen was compelled to dlscon- tnuo WM worth $3,000. The acton was , therefore , for $15,000. The defense contended that It was an'act of God which caused the wall , otherwise perfectly safe , to fall , or In other words , that an unusual and vIolent wind storm had caused the disaster , and Meyer could not justly be held responsible. Time case was tried twice before , but the jury In each instance disagreed WhIle the verdict Is not by any means Eatsraetory to Meyer , ho' will satisfy the judgment to rid himself of the annoyance of any further trIals. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ ills TnrlUI"8 ( ' eSt 111 10101 , Since the commencement of the trial of I Dathas Jeter , who Is under Indictment for selling liquors without a license at Fifty- fourth and Dodge streets , his attorneys have been In hot watel over the eccentricites of the South Oimimm.ma brewer They have not ben able to Impresl upon Ils mind time 1m- porwnce of the case In hanll , or the neees. sly of conforming to the etquet of the court room.

John flush addressed limo gathering , selecting for his subject , "Recollections of Early School Days In Ommiaimn " In recounting time recollection - lecton of early days Mr. flush said : Soon after the passage of the "Kansas and Nebraska bill" the territories Involved attracted the attention of' Immigrants from foreIgn countries , as wel as from the At- lantc seaboard , so that In the spring' ' of 1851 t , when 1 treaty had been agreed ullon between the lnilans and the government , qulo 1 number of setters from time older states crossed the MissourI , determine to make Nebraska their future hem . During limo summer and fall of that year they coil- tnuel to pour In , and h fore winter Omaha assumed time character and Importunco or a busy and ambitious town. Many of the pIoneers lived In "dugouts" during the winter of 1814 nml 1855 , and the next year witnessed the comemncement of time epoch of house buiding In this cIty , which has contnued ever sin co. In the formaton or' new states and terrItories - tories a very wise and liberal provision has been made for the malntenenco of time corn- mon schools. For Instance , In Nebraska two sections , or square mies , In every township of six mle9 square arc set apart for this purpose. In Douglas county there are about 193,000 acres of land , i and as two-thlrty.slxths of each township , or one-eighteenth , Is school land , It follows that In Douglas county alone the state held about 10,600 acres for popular educatiomi. or course much of this land Is now sold , as well 'as a great portion of the school land of other counties-sold In many cases at too low a price , I think , and the proceeds constitute : what Is known as the "permanent school fund , " This fund has now reached several millions , , amid Is , I undarstand , invested In bonds and ethel approved securi- ties. So long ns this money Is In the hands of honest , emclent omcers It Is al right , but its very existence Is a temptation , and I would b better to own time land , which In many cases has doubled and quadrupl In \'aluo since sold by time state THE FIST SCHOOL. During the fut four or five years of Omaha's history there were no public scimools because there were no funds to maintain them. But just as soon as the new settlers had provIde homes for themselves their next thought was the education of their children. In the fall of 18&5 u select school , : as , . opened on Jackson stre.t , In proximity to or on Lime sle of time present aGreau cracker factory. Time teacher was a Mrs. Doyle. lIen hus- band was an Irlshmnn , but she was either Scotch or of Scotchdescent ( After her Miss Kate Creighton taught. This lady was the sister of our esteemed fellow citizen , Mr. James Creighton , and we are told that thc school was a very crcdlnble one as the lady possessed time attributes and refnement of a successful teacher. After Miss Creighton , Miss Adelade Good'el taught a very satisfactory - factory school In the old State honse , which was located directly opposite , and west of time Herendon house , subsequently the Union Pacific headquarters. In those primitve and prImary institutions of learning were chidren many of whom have since bccomo' distnguished citizens of bbr city , and state Miss Elizabeth Davis , afterward the charlablo amid . llversaly respected - spected Mrs. Herman Kountze Miss Esta- brook ; now Mrs. .Colonel Cowry ; Ralph E.

The first teacher employed - ployed was Howard D. Kennedy. The examiner . Iner was George Y. Gilbert , and the board of directors consisted of John H. Kelom , Dr. Monel and Mr. Gilbert.
