DAVENPORT GETS A SCHOOL Rotroaclniiflnt Ideas Get a Backset in the Board of Education , DEPARTMENT OF MUSIC REINSTATED J.tmt HPIIVCH n Slcli Over ( lie Almiiiliiii- jupnt of Hctrciiuliliivni Iilciix tlctllnw llncU to the ( Mil "I don't tee wlmt Is becoming of nil our retrenchment Ideas , " nlghcd Member Lunt ot the Hoard of Rdncatlnn toward the end of last night R meeting of thr board. As he KOVO vent to the expression he wore a \\carled look , for the tlda wna against him. The first cause of Lunt'fi sorrow wns found In thu election of Miss Fumilo Arnold as supervisor ot music , tor the was nt last elected. The motion that "wo proceed to elect n supervisor of music" uns been up'be- fore every board meeting since last June. It has always been voted down. Last night It carried. The jcas were : Akin , Anderson , Ilandlmucr , Davidson , Glllcspic , Lowe , Tu- Itcy , Itlinndc.v S. The nays were : Kdwards , Oration , Johnson and Lunt I. Limt's was the only voice raised against the motion. Ho said that he was opposed to nny fads , In vlow of the present condi tion of the fchool fund , and furthermore that he did not believe In reinstating any of the departments that had brcn ruled out In a previous scheme of retrenchment adopted by the board. At once after the election of Miss Arnold her salary was fixed at $ t,100 a year , $100 less than she has been receiving heretofore. The difference was neutralized , however , by the addition of the amount to thu salary of the Biipcrvlsor ot drawing , Miss llltt , which was also placed at $1,100. Lunt groaned again when Davidson arose with a motion to reopen a room In the Davenport school near Thirty-eighth and Davenport streets , which the board had al ready decided to close during the coming year. Davidson stated that the westerners wanted as much school as the people In the vicinity of the Ambler and Druid Hill schools , which the board had also decided to close , but one or two rooms of which they deter mined at the last meeting to open. David son's motion stated that there was a "crying need" for the school. Then Lowtr wanted n room opened also at the Fort Omaha school , the fourth and lost school the board decided to close. He de termined , however , to make no motion to that cited , but In place did move that a committee bo Instructed to consider the ad visability of opening the school or provid ing means for transporting the school chil dren to the nearest school In the vicinity of the fort. In explanation ho stated that jioople In the neighborhood of the fort were Iclcklng because their children had to walk too far to school. DAVENPOHT SCHOOL REOPENED. Upon a vote it was decided to open a room In the Davenport school. As It wns discovered that the lease of the ground on which the building stood had been cancelled l > y the board a committee was Instructed to re-lease the ground or to lease some other grounds In the Immediate vicinity. Miss Jlyra Laltuo was elected principal of the school and Mrs , Zelgler the janltress. Mrs. Mary Uarth and Miss Muttle Arnold were elected Janltrcsses respectively of the Am bler and Druid Hill schools , both ot which were reopened at the last meeting ot the lioard. Lunt's visage bore another pained expres sion when the board authorized the purchase of any number , up to 2,500 copies , of "Se lections from the Bible. " n compilation of biblical selections by W. II. Onahan , J. II. Harrows and C. C. Bouncy , at a cost of 25 cents each. The resolution authorizing the purchase was Introduced by Colonel Akin as chairman of a committee. It further pro vided that the "same be read In the schools of Omaha , subject to rules hereafter to be adopted. " Various expressions were given vent to after the Introduction ot the resolution , Lowe did not believe the children needed the book. Edwards wanted the whole bible In troduced Into the schools if any biblical Instruction was to bo given. Colonel Akin thought the Idea a good one because It en abled tha pupils to become acquainted with biblical quotations. Glllcsplo thought the book would do great good and saw no objec tion from a sectarian point ot view , because It was compiled by an orthodox Catholic , nn orthodox Presbyterian and an orthodox He brew. The resolution was adopted and the books authorized to bo purchased by a vote of 7 to 5. Akin , Anderson , Davidson , Glllcsple , Johnson , Lunt and Tukey voted In the affirmative and Edwards , Gratton , Jordan , Lowe and Rhoadcs In the negative. It IB proposed that the books shall be usctl In the grammar grades. It Is calculate * ! that 2M)0 ) will furnish every two children with a book , a sufficient number In the opin ion of the board. The cost will bo $625. ANTI-TOBACCO PfjTSDGE. Shortly afterward Gratton Introduced a resolution by which an "anti-tobacco pledge' was to bo put In force lu the schools. The pledge reads as follows : I hereby promise not to nso cigarettes or tobacco In any form during my school life If I wish to bo released from this pledge I will consult the principal of this school "What arc wo trying to do ? Run a Sunday school ? " growled Lowe. When the resolution came up a viva voce vote failed to pass It. On a roll call however , It was adopted by a vote ot 9 to 3 only Lowe , Lunt and Rhoadcs casting votes against it. The pledge was ordered prlntci and a sufficient number la to bo obtalnci for distribution In all the schools. Treasurer Edwards reported that out standing school warrants , nn which Inter est has ceased , amount to $19,250.37 , whllo $33,078.21 worth of outstanding warrants ore drawing 7 per cent Intercut. The Iml once in thu treasury Is $25C5S.GO. In a report Superintendent of Buildings II , J. Banker informed the board that between tween 350 and 400 window lights were broken in the Central , Park , Saratoga Lothrop , Lulio , Kellom , Long annex , Cuss Dodge and High schools by last Saturday's Btorm. The damage Is being repaired. The superintendent of Instruction am the superintendent of buildings were author ized to arrange for an exhibit at the state fair at n cost of not more than $40. Elizabeth Shirley was elected to the prln- clpalshtp of Ambler school , which has been vacant , owing to the declination of Clara n. Mason , who bad been elected , trat pre ferred a position as teacher. Mrs. Mary L. Kldrtcr was elected prin cipal of Druid Mill school. Secretary John Laughland asked permis sion to use 20 chairs belonging to the hoard n the Associated Charities dining hall at ho state fair. The board was reminded hat by grunting the request It would help n caring for the poor during the winter. Supplies of the value of $100 were ordered or the manual training department , The High school committee , superintend ent of instructions and principal ot High ichool were Instructed to wait upon Gen- er.il Copplngcr and Colonel Casey , com- naiidanl nt Fort Crook , with regard to se curing the services ot a military otnccr to Instruct the High school cadets. E. U. Page , Dr. W , F. Mllroy and TUIss Anna Fooa were elected as the examining committee for the ensuing year. Owing to the fact that the next regular ncetlng of the board , three weeks from list night , wilt fall on the evening Imme diately preceding the day on which the schools open , adjournment was taken for only two weeks. CITY oFi'MciAi.s"mmmx IIOMK. Hi-port HiivliiK 11 ml Mo t l i\our * I on.

Taylor and Beech Higby extolled the many benefits to bo de rived from the exposition located In Omaha and wore greeted on each occasion by largo audiences. A quantity of Transmlsslsslppl literature was distributed along the route and will undoubtedly be productive of good results.

Ex-City Clerk ilaly will be called upon to attend and tell what ho knows about the missing water works contract , and ex-Mayor Ed-Johnston has promised to be present and make a talk In support ot his statement that there never was a contract , H was learned yester day that the finance committee would report favorably on the payment ot the Drls- cell claim. Mrs. Drlscoll died several weeks ago and the administrator of her estate has not yet made any demand for the amount of the judgment she obtained. It was reported In municipal circles yes terday afternoon that live of the councilmen - men would vote for the payment of the claim. The Jetter fence matter Is also expected to come up as a report from the special committee Is looked for. Jetter wants the city to pay him $857 before he removes the fence which he has built across Thirtieth street. Some of the members of the council are In favor of settling the claim In order that the street may be opened without delay , while others fall back on the statutes governing the refunding of taxes and say they do not see how the city can refund the money without violating the law. The annual report of the city treas urer , which shows the condition of the city's nuances , will be read and discussed. Coinllllo f I'VciTT-r MiirlCft. The demand for feeder cattle still exceeds the supply at this market. Receipts ot range cattle have been light nearly all ot this month , but this Is accounted for from the fact that sonic time ago prices dropped way down and a great number of ranchmen let their herds return to the range. In Wyoming along the Burlington road water was scarce during the summer and the grass dried out , leaving the stock thin. Rains have since fallen up there and the grass has freshened up considerable. As soon as the cattle put on a little additional flesh ship ments will begin to come In at a lively rate. In spite of the small receipts South Omaha has held Its own In the feeder market. Dur ing the first fifteen days of this month there were shipped from the yards here G.6-16 cars of feeders divided among the states ns follows : Nebraska , 1,921 cars ; Illinois , 517 cars ; Iowa , 2,834 cars ; Kansas , 394 cars , and Missouri , 90 cars. This makes a total of 168,150 head ot feeders sold at this market In half a month , and still the demand is greater than the supply , The majority of the feeders sold nt this point will bo returned to this market. All of those fattened in Nebraska will be mar keted here , n largo portion of those sent to Iowa will come back here and quite a number from Kansas and Missouri. Last week 102 cars of feeders , 2,801 head were shipped out , mostly to Nebraska points. Money Is a little easier and farmers de siring to purchase feeders to fatten are not having any difficulty at the present time In obtaining the money necessary. ' 1'roiililr Over Onrlm o. For some tlmo trouble has been brewing betwen th occupants of the block at the northwest corner ot Twenty-fourth and N streets and the saloon keepers on Twenty- fourth street whoso places of business are nearby. The occupants of the block ob jected to the men who congregated In the rear ot these saloons and drank beer out of cans. In order to put a stop to this the owners of the property built a hlg board fence around the rear of the block , thus shutting oft access to the rear of the saloons. This plan worked all right until yesterday , when the saloon keepers commenced to burn n quantity of garbage which had accumulated on ac count of it being Impossible for the garbage wagon to get to the rear of the liquor bouses. The odor of the burning garbage was more than the nostrils of those In the block could stand and the matter was re ported to the mayor. In company with the agent of the property where the saloons arc located the mayor looked over the surrouud- Ings and at once ordered the fence torn down , or at least a portion of It , so as to allow the passage of a wagon , The garbage master then hauled all of the refuse away and the saloonkeepers were ordered not to allow garbage ot any kind to accumulate , but to have It moved every day or twice a day If necessary. It is thought that the trouble , which has been on for some 5fme , Is now ended. ClllllIinlfTIl IlllttOIl HllMllK'HH. A representative of nn eastern campaign button factory was In the city for a few hours yesterday. He said that his flrm wns doing an Immense business In ev ry state In the union. When asked which he sold the most of , gold or silver buttons , he said tn.it up to the present tlmo orders had been coming in for four dozen McKinley buttons to two dozen Bryan buttons. In Ihls state he said that ho sold two McKinley buttons to one Bryan button. While this genial representative ot the campaign but ton factory said that ho was not a politician ho thought It would be safe toplck the win ner from the way the buttons were selling. He exhibited an order just received through the mall from a Colorado city for 100 dozen goldbug buttons and forty dozen Bryan buttons. This goes to show that all of the voters In Colorado are not advocates of free silver. Mnxlr City GiiNxlii. E. P. Meyers of Ogalalla Is registered at one of the hotels.

A simple , everyday succession of events and a scries ot pictures ot New York life make up the Ingredients employed by Ada Leo Dascom In her play , "A Uowery Girl. " Yet there is so much that Is realistic and genuine , so much that takes hold of the rc- nlltles of lite In a great city , that it appeals to every one. What country boy has not heard of New York , the metropolis ot Amer ica , and who has not pictured In his mind the famous Uowery ot that city , probably the best known street In any city of the world , where all classes and characters con gregate ? The play alms at once to be re alistic and mclo-dramatlc , with a mixture of comedy. It Is built around characters who represent the old region of what Is Identified with the history ot New York City. Last season "A tlovvery Girl" was a great success In New York , Boston" , Chicago , Phil adelphia and * U the largo cities , and will undoubtedly continue to prove one of the best attractions as a nielo-drama for many years to come. "A Uowery Girl , " with all Its scenic and mechanical effects and the en tire metropolitan company , headed by the clever comedienne , Florrle West , will be produced at Hoyd's theater on Sunday , Mon day aud Tuesday evenings next.
