"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
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
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
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.
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.

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.

sion to use 20 chairs belonging to the hoard

E. U. Page , Dr. W , F. Mllroy and TUIss

committee for the ensuing year.
Owing to the fact that the next regular

diately preceding the day on which the
schools open , adjournment was taken for
only two weeks.

The entire party reports n most enjoyable
time during the run among the mountains
of the far western states , and , although the
Jaunt was taken principally for pleasure ,

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

results. The entire party was photographed

There will be ft meeting of the city council
this evening and considerable business ot
Importance will come up. 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.

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.

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

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

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

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

Ed Sutton , mayor of Shcoley , Is having
considerable trouble In becoming disen
tangled from the meshes of the law. Lnst
Saturday ho was released , after serving a
sixty-day sentence In the county Jail for an
assault. With In a few hours he was re-
arrostcd on the charge of larceny and yester
day morning was sent back to the county
jail for twenty days.
It seems that when his time expired
Sutton believed that Ills uttlro was not In
keeping with his dignity. Ho therefore
picked out the best coat and vest that ho
could find belonging to other prisoners lu
the Jail. AVIth these ho walked out. It hap
pened that the clothing belonged to George
Oliver , who Is something of a dude. Oliver
very speedily discovered his loss and at once
Sutton had very little defense , as the coat
was discovered on his back. Ho said that
lie obtained It from a friend , but neverthe
less pleaded guilt } ' to the charge against
\Vorkliiw to HiMioli Homo.

sires to return to her husband In Oklahoma ,
who cannot come for her because ho Is hold

because he has not the means.
