acted a big amount of routine business , In
which there were also mixed a variety ol
matters of moro or less general In tor cot.
I'csalbly the action that will Interest the
public of the city most was the decision
to allow the school year to remain nine and
one-halt months Instead of extending It to
ten months. The resolution favoring the
extension , which was Introduced at the last
meeting and referred to a committee , was
unfavorably reported back , In view of the
fact that even with the present length of the
school year there will be an Increased dcfl.

Church In Slieele.v ( IMMI.
The Easter mass that was being celcbratci !
In St , Wcuccslaus' Bohemian church
at 1412 South Fourteenth street , was
disturbed and almost broken up by a
tumult that did not fall far short ot a free-
for-all tight.
The Individual who proved to be the dis
turbing clement was Jan Slansky , a joung
Bohemian ot pleasing appearance. Slausky
has studied for the prlcathood and has also
been a student at the State university at
Lincoln. Ho came to the city last Satur
day evening and was the guest of Join
Roslcky. He arrived late , but decided
nevertheless to take In the mass that waste
to be celebrated at St. Wenceslaus' church
When the > oung man reached the churcl
ho found that the congregation filled It to
the doors. Therefore he went aroun I to
the sacristy doors to obtain admittance. He
felt that his priestly studies entitled him
to admittance In this way. Father Vratiek
who was In the sacristy , thought othcr-
w Ise.
"You have no right In here , " stated that
reverend minister , and he pushed the young
man roughly toward the door.
"I have a right , " replied Slansky , whose
temper rose nt the Interference.
Ho did not feel like standing the resist
ance , and some of the spectators say thai
ho took a poke ut the reverend father , but
did not land.
The fact that the priest was not struck was
not considered. The blow aimed at the
lev eiend man fired the joung acolytes who
attended him In ecrvlco. They turned upoi
JOUDK Slan ky and assaulted him. He was
beaten In the face repeatedly and the blooi
( towed from his wounds In goodly streams
Ho finally made his escape and then left the
church without attending mass.
The news of the affray soon spread among
the members of the congregation and Fathc
Vranek had considerable dllllculty In holding
their attention to the holy work la hand
After the services were concluded , the mem
hers of the congregation gathered about the
doors of the church and talked about the
affair for some time. It would have gone
lather hard with Slansky If they could have
placed their hands on him at that time.
Slansky was In police couit jcsterday
to sec If lie- could get back In a legal wa ;
at some of his assailants. He bore upon his
face full end conclusive evidence that he
had been the victim of an assault. He was
however , utablc to furnish the names of anj
of his assailants , and therefore did not sue
cecd In seeurlng a warrant for the arrest o
any one.
"The priest Informed the congregation
against me , " said Slansky. "The people
were like teirlble wild beasts , without civ 111
zatlon. Thcj struck mo across the face am
made mo. bleed : "
Later In the day Slansky appearcc'
with an addition to his story , which was will
difficulty understood , as ho talked very pee
English. The gUt of It was" that ho was the
victim of an assault In Shceleytovvn
Sunday afternoon shortly after 4 o'clock. Ho
was trying to argue with a small audience
upon the "bad people" In the world when
somebody struck him in the face. He hat
trouble In getting away. He believes tha
the assault was committed by some ono o
the congregation of the St. Wcnceslaus
church.
Slansky alleges that he will be able to
Identify the man who hit him and a police
man accompanied him to Sheeleytown In an
effort to locate the Individual.

TRAIN ROBBER BOUND OVER
Postofiko Officials Produce Evidence Against

Jnmcs True , ono of the two men who BO
boldly held Up and robbed the mall cnrg on
( ha Union 1'acinc's "Past Mail" train neat
Ulntah elation , Utah , last October , lias been
examined before a United States commis
sioner at Sacramento , Cal. , and on the
strength of the evidence there developed lm
been bound over to the next term of the
United States district court. Information tc
this effect was recalled by Chler William T ,
Canada of the Union Pacific's special sen Ice
department yesterday.
Thomas Hobbs , the other suspect who was
arrested by government detectives last week ,
was discharged by the commissioner because
of lack of convincing evidence. The licarlns
waj held at Sacramento last Saturday after
noon. The next term of the federal court
thcro will be In September , at which time It
Is thought by ths postolllco and railway
officials that True will be given a lengthy
sentence In a federal psnltentlary. The cane
hoa been conducted principally by the olll-
ccrs of the I'oslnnice department , as tha
robbery of the registered mall sacks W.TS a
crime committed against the government.
The government detectives have , however
been greatly assisted by the Union Pacific
detectives.
The hearing developed the fact that Tru 'a
description corresponded almost exactly to
that given by the train hands and the ex
press messengers of the man by whom they
were Intimidated. Inspector Watcrbury ol
the I'ostolllce department located True at
Nevada City , Cal. , tome time ago , and ho
has been under surveillance ever since ,
though not arrested until last w ° ek. Tes
timony was offered proving that he had been
spending money very freely In Sacramento ,
San Francisco and other California points
soon after the robbery ft was proven that
ho was an ex-switchman of the Union Pa
cine , with whom the road had had trouble
before. J
Letters were Introduced to prove that Mrs
True , the wife , had endeavored to estab-
Huh an alibi for her husband on the night
of the robbery. She wrote to Mr. and Airs.
Wadman asking them to swear that the }
were at her house playing cards on that
night and that True was there This the }
refused to do. The wife swore that she had
bold her carpets In order to raise $8 foi
True's transportation , but the commls&Ioner
did not think this statement harmonized
with the fact that True had been spending
money lavishly as soon as he reached the
Golden Gate. The attempts to establish an
alibi failed completely , and much damaging
evidence regarding True's actions and gen
eral talk after the night of the robbery
was Introduced by the government.

Preparations for the Inauguration cere
monies of the Transmlsslsslppl Exposition arc
nearly completed and there Is every Indica
tion that the affair will be ono of the greatest
demonstrations ever wen In this city. He *
HpoiiEes continue to be lecctvcd from various
organizations , giving notice that they will
take part In the parade The latest notice of
this kind was that received from the Mer
chants' and Manufacturers' association of
Council DlufTs , slating that that organization
would bo In line with a large representation
atU would probably be accompanied by a
band. It Is estimated that there will bo
about 10.000 men In the parade.
The work of laying the foundation of the
\ich of the States , the cornerstone of which
will bo laid on Arbor day , np\t Thursday ,
was commenced } estonlay It Is the de
sire of the exposition manHgement to make
this aich a permanent Btructure. and with
this Idea in view , Architect Klmball has
been in cur-re t.ondetice with various mami-
factuicrs of brick and with owners of ston
quarries with a view to having them con
struct the arch. One plan suggested Is to
build the ntch of cream colored brick It
haa been urged that this would form a beau
tiful contrast with the decorated frieze and
result in a landmark which would be a thing
of beauty The plan of the urch. an agreed
upon contemplates having the frlczo dec-
oratoil will the coats of arms of the Males
of the1 union , done In colors , the transmlbsls-
slppl states being represented on the north
and Houth Pices , the thirteen original statwi

Auh ot the States It will span Twentieth
street nt the south entrance to what will
bo known aftei the exposition as Kountze
park , and will form n most ttrlklng land
mark , vlslblr In every direction. The design
for this stricture thows an arch on thi >
order of the famous triumphal arches of
European countries It Is massive and Im
posing In appearance and in u most pleasing
architectural conception Eastern papers
have commented c\tt > nt > lvcl } and favorably
on this arch , bomo of them printing sketches
of It.
The cornerstone of this arch vslll bo laid
Arbor day by Grand Master Pheljw of the
Free Mccons of Nebraska , assisted by the
ofllcers of the grand lodge. The ceremony
will take place after the parade has reached
the exposition grounds.
Van Court & Wlnn , the contractors who
will do tile grading of the lakes and lagoons
on the exposition grounds , have commenced
moving their grading outfit to the grounds
and expect to commence work the first of
next week.

The nlishlp that has been infesting these
and neighboring parts Is a nightly visitor
at 1'ortal vvhenevei the weather Is line.
The- residents of that little place- , which Is
but a few miles from this city , would be
unablu to sleep If the- airy inonstc-r dlil not
put In .1 regulai uppeaiaiice. So h.ijs Mrs.
John McCarthy , who llvis then * and who
has friends In this city. The ship appears
on every night when it Is flour. It hccms
to come Invailably from the direction of
Seymour pailc. It .slgyngs across the heav
ens and shoots up or down with equal
facility. According to the- people who lmvt
viewed it through glasses It is long and
oblong , and Is p-ovliled with huge wings
Lights are hung front and aft.
Science has invented a
nou-fiinkablc life boat : Fill
it with water and it actually
bails itself out in less than
a minute. Science finds a
way to save lives that seem
beyond savins' . When the
good ship of Health is
stranded on the k-e shore
of Consumption , science
comes to the rescue with
Dr. Pierce's ' Golden Med
ical Discovery. It is the
non-sinlcable lifeboat of
medical science.
It makes red , rich
blood that drives im
purities out of the
circulation , stops un
healthy deposits in
the throat and lungs ;
. heals up the tissues
jand restores vital en-
\cry \ ) and solid flesh.
Its nutritive proper
ties are far superior to any malt extracts or
cod liver oil emulsions , as it does not make
soft flabby fat , but genuine muscular power
and nerve force. It cures all diseases that
result from impoverished blood and all
weak run-down conditions.
J. W. Jordan , Hsq , of Corbln , Whitley Co , Ky. ,
writes : " About two and n half years ana when
I was nt Pint I.lck , Ky. , I was taken with severe
pains In chest , after which I began to spit up
blood and vvns also troubled with night-sweats.
I was so short vvladed that I could hardly walk
half a mile at once , and if I got the least bit
ncnried I would have an attack of phthisic ( as
thma ) and almost die for about twoor three days
I concluded to try Dr. R V. Pierce , anil I related
my case to him. He wrote me that I should taVe
his 'Golden Medical Discovery , ' I began using
it and used nbout six bottles. I brgan to see that
it was helping me. So I concluded to continue
the 'Golden Medical Discovery. ' I did so
and I have improved both In strength and in
weight. I have not had the phthisic , nor spit up
any blood since last spring. "
Dr. Pierce'a Common Sense Medical Ad
viser is the most popular medical work
in the English language. It contains a
thousand and eight-pages , and over three
hundred illustrations. It is a great store
house of valuable information , A copy
