Th < ; exposition management Is somewhat
exercised over the notlco received from In-
curnnco Inspector Martman to the effect that
the erection of a frame planing mill Just out-
lido of the main court at the northeast corner ,
end about twenty-five feet back of the Ma
chinery nnd Hlcctrlclty building will Incrclso
th , , Insurance rate which must be paid on the
buildings on the main court and on the con
tend * of all thCio buildings.
Thin planing mill was erected recently by
iVogcl brothers , the building permit being
taken out In the name of the TrntmnUMsslppl
} ' { anlng Mill company. These people had u
contract wtl | ) the Department of Httlldlngs
and nroumlfl to occupy the brick building on
( fie bluff tract , but the executive committee
rrfuhcd to approve the contract for the reason
that It would he discriminating against home
'In'Mllutlotis which had subscribed to exposi
tion stock.
When this plan failed tbo planing mill
people secured a lease of a lot which IH
nt the northeast corner of the main court ,
enclosed 'on the eat by ft portion of the
crounds which tuns up to Manderson stre- ,
and on'this they erected a .frame building ,
which Uncovered with tar paper. This build
" ' '
ing" U almo'x't In direct contact with the
fence surrounding the main court and Is
within a few feet of where the Machinery and
Klcctrlclty building will stand. To facilitate
access to the mill from the exposition
crounds a gate has been cut through thn
fence , directly back of the mill.
After the notice was tccclvcd from In-
epector Hartiuan , Secretary Wakofleld visited
the ofllce of the city building Inspector and
remonstrated with Dulldlng Inspector Duller
Tor Issuing a permit for snrh a structure In
tuch close proximity to the exposition bulM-
ings. .Mr. Duller said he hod no knowledge
of just who o the nnln buildings would be
located and had flmply Issued the permit
without tiny reference to those buildings.
The permit being Issued , IIP said the matter
had gene beyond lib power.
Inspector Hartman suggested that the fire
risk might bo reduced by erecting a'brick
wall between the planing mill and the ex
position grounds , but Chief Itedell of the
lire department said this would not lessen
the danger from lire , as the chips and shav-
lims from the mill would blow all over that
part of town anl the danger to the build
ings would ho very great.
N'o olllolal action on the matter- has yet
been taken b > the executive committee.

The Transmlsslsslppl Exposition manage
ment has received another airship proposi
tion. The Inventor of the machine Is from
Jlltsourl. HP accordingly accompanies his
proposition with a cabinet photograph showIng -
Ing a small model of the machine with which
ho proposes to overcome the attraction of
giavlty to some extent and soar heavenward
as with the wings ot a hint.
A photograph shows two rectangular
frames which Intersect one another at
right angles. A small platform rents on the
point where the lower sides Intersect , and
on this Is placed the motive power , coii-
elsllng'of a small molor which'the Inventor
says may be opcraled hy'conipresscd air or
electricity. , At the extreme. outer
ends of the upper sides of the
frames arc placed wheels resembling turbine
water wheels. There are four of these and
they are constructed of steel tubing , covered
with cloth. The wheels are twenty-five feet
In diameter and aru operated by means of
shafting. Running up above the engine Is
a rod having a universal joint at Us upper
end and to this Is attached another wheel
which may b-i used as a propeller or a rud
der. This constitutes the machine , and the
Inventor says that the model from which
the photograph Is taken works successfully.
lie says that when the machine Is in mid
air and the rotation of the wheels Is stopped
they act as parachutes , and the machine
descends slowly to the earth. lie says that
the completed machine will weigh about 500
pounds.
The Inventor is 0. G. Newton of Trenton ,
Mo. , and he asks the exposition people to
advance him $300 for the construction of
tho. machine , which ho proposes to.build on
the exposition grounds.

Dutcher Staples , whb ban a fhop , at Six
teenth acid Dorcas streets , thought a whole
lot of unutterable thing ! ) yesterday when
a policeman dropped Into his place nnd
wanted to know whether ho had been robbed
Wednesday. Hutcher Staples , not recalling
.ho proverb that all great bodies move
slowly , fondly Imagined that after he had
reported to the police Wednesday the ex-
pcrtmco ho had had with robbers , at least
n few of tne officers would be looking for
the crook * . It was no wonder , therefore ,
that the butcher's thoughts assumed a de
cidedly variegated hue when the policeman
Interviewed him yesterday. Inasmuch as the
otllcer stated that nothing bad yet been done
lo apprehend the robbers.
Hutcher Staples was sitting In a rear
room behind his shop Wednesday , when a
man entered the establishment. Staples
hecrd some one at the money drawer and ho
hastily wont Into the shop to Investigate.
He got there just In tlmo to see a man run
out of the front door and leap Into a buggy ,
In which was seated another man. The two
hurrldly drove away.
The butcher stopped only long enough to
( list-over that a $10 bill had bc3n taken out
of the drawer. Then ho rushed out of his
lop and ho noticed the buggy going at a
igh rate of speed north on Sixteenth street ,
he butcher proved that ho was something
1 a sprinter , hut he could not keep up : vltli
rapidly driven horro. Ho kept the rig In
ght. however , and was filled with hopes
mt the robbers would he caught , as he
otlcsd that they nnd a policeman were
ipldly coming together at the end of the
Ixtccnth street viaduct.
The policeman saw the rig. AH It was
olng fast , he hailed the drivers and wanted
o know whcit ! they wcro going in such a
itirry. They answered that It was none of
ils business. Then the men drove on and
le pallccmnn plodded on his way until
ulllng Hutcher Staples met him.
The butcher Info'med the officer of the
aw that the two men had robbed him. Ily
its time , however , the rig was out of sight
cross the viaduct nnd there was no chance
f getting the men. The butcher thereupon
ctalled all the circumstances of the case
nil went home In the firm belief that before
lornlng the robbers would be In Jail. When
policeman visited his shop and wanted
o know If he had been robbed Wednesday
lutchcr Staples was mad.

CHICAGO. Sept. 1. The Iowa crop report
ertomber 1 says : There Is a wide rang1 In the
stlmates as to the condition of the corn
rep , compared with the average of past
oars. The average condition of corn for
lie state at largo was estimated nt 74 per
out of n normal crop. Of the three south-
rn districts the average was 70 per cent
nd for the central northern districts 70 per
out. The extreme heat and the prevalence
f hot and dry wind slnco September 1 have
frosted the normal development of the corn
rep and materially reduced the possible
leld. Judging by personal observations and
ate reporls from all sections the director
oes not hesitate to say that tne condition
f corn at this date , September 10 , Us not
bove GO per cent of the normal , and that the
leld of sound , merchantable corn will not
xeeed twenty bushels per aero , or a tolal of
abnul lfiO.000,000 bushels. There will be In
cxecsa of Ihls n considerable amount of Ini-
naturc corn of variable condition and value
is forage for stock.
ST. JOSEPH. Mo. , Sept. n.-Late corn In
his section has been seriously Injured by the
irolouged drouth and the crop will bo much
ihortor than expected. Early corn Is said to
> e out of danger , but many fields of la to corn
vill be- good only for fodder. The hot , dry
veatlier bus also Injured the fruit crop and
lasturcs are burning up , with stock water
very scarce. The drouth U the most severe
or many years.
HURON , S. D. , Sept. 9. ( Spcclal.-The )
mlletlu from the government bureau here
says :
The warm -weather - of the past week was
' .ivorable for maturing tlm earlier corn , but
ho hot winds adversely affected some of the
nte In localities , In drying the foliage and
slirlnkins the kernel.
Considerable of the early corn Is now out
of danger from frost and the later Is mntur-
HK rapidly. The matured corn Is a line
ioi > and .well cured. Krom a week to ten
lays more of Immunity from heavy frost
will piob.ibly see the bulk of the corn crop
safe.
The hot winds wcro unfavorable to upland

VICTORY FOR THE RECEIVERS
Important Case to Pirmnolnl Coinpanio3
Dismissed by the Court of Appeals ,
END OF GUNNISON RAILWAY LITIGATION
Court llitldn ( lint Union I'nt'lHc Of-
HclnlN AnXot l.lnlilo for
ICrrnr Mmlr by I.nun
Ciniipaii ) ,
General Solicitor Wllllnm II. Kelly of the
Union 1'aclflc railway has Just returned from
St. 1'aul , where ho won one of the most
Important lcgr.1 victories that has come to
the Union Pacific In recent years , and
thereby terminated u cnsa that hail been In
litigation for over two years. As a result
of the decision of the circuit court of ap
peals , United States court , Judges Tliayer
and Ulner sitting , a suit of the American
Loan and Trust company of New York ,
trustees of the mortgage of the Denver ,
Lcndvillo & Ounnlson railway , against S.
II. II. Clark 'and ' the other receivers of the
Union I'acinc railway , Involving $240,001) ) ,
has been decided In favor of the receivers
of the Union Pacific.
Th5 Denver , Leatlvlllo & Gunnlson rail
way Is a part of the Union 1'aclflc , Denver
& Gulf railway .lystom. All belonged to
the Union Pacific system prior to the
receivership of the Union Pacific. The re
ceivers of the Union Pacific ofisrated the
Denver , Leadvlllo & Gunnlson railway from
October 13 , 1SS3 , to August 7 , 1S94. Tno
xpcnses of tie ! operation of the Gunnlson
allway during that period were greater than
lie receipts by ? la2,000. At the time of
ic surrender of the property to the re-
elvers there was on hand $48,000 worth of
allway material. This was turned over to the
ecolvcrs. On the settlement of the account
he court charged the Gunnlson property
vlth these two amounts , aggregating $240-
00 , as a prior lien over thu mortgages.
From this judgment the trustee ( the Amerl-
an Loan and Trust company of New York )
appealed. The trustee , however , appealed
against the receivers alone and not against
lie Denver , Leadvlllo & Gunnlson railway.
The court hold that the railway company
vas a necessary party to the appeal , but
as It had not been made a party , the court
uled that It could not Investigate the mat
er , and therefore dismissed the case.
The case was argued in St. Paul before
ludges Thayer and llltier. The American
-oin and Trust company was represented by
Utorney Sheldon and the Union Pacific by
General Solicitor Kelly. It Is mot yet known
whether the plaintiff will now take an ap
peal to the United States supreme court or
lot. The case has attracted much attention
n railway and financial circles during the
ast two years , and the decision of the court
dismissing the appeal of the trustees ! s re
garded as a notable victory for thu railway
company.

Thcro were two new developments In the
coal rate war In local railway circles yes
terday. The announcement in yesterday's
Issue of The Hoc that the reduced rate of
? 2 would go Into effect on Saturday of this
week , September 11 , Instead of on September
20 , was incredulously received In a number of
freight olilccs , only to be later verified. The
moving up of the date for the operation of
the new tariff by nine days caused all the
lines to hustle , and before the morning was
"ttdl along September 11 had been quite gen
erally announced as the date for the com
mencement of the $2 rate.
The roads west of the Missouri river fell
into line yesterday. The Union Pacific
jumped out ahead of Its competitors and an
nounced that on account of the reduction ol
coal rates between Chicago and Missouri river
points It would make a horizontal reduction
of $1 In its coal rates from Omaha to. all
points In Nebraska.
Asked If a corresponding reduction would be
made In other states In which the Union Pa
cific operates. Assistant General Freight
Agent Wood of that railway said : "We have
not yet decided what we shall do In Kansas ,
or any other state , except Nebraska. We have
just dccldrd to make a horizontal cut of $1
[ rom our coal rate now In effect from the Mis
souri river to all points In Nebraska. "
"When will the cut In coal rates on your
line become effective ? "
"Just as soon as we can put It In. The
law requires a five days' notice on any
reduction and a ten days' notice on any In
crease In rates. The reduction west of the
Missouri river cannot become operative as
soon as that made by the lines cast of tUr
river , where It will be effective on Septem
ber 11 , because of the necessity of giving
five days' notice. The reduction will proba
bly be effective In Nebraska on September
13 , ticxt Monday. "

Speaking of the movement of freight 01
the Klkhorn , General Supcrlntcndcn
Hughes said yesterday : "Our frelgh
business Is remarkably good. There Is a big
movement of Block. New wheat Is now be
ginning to move and there Is plenty of eli
corn being shipped out of the state. There
is somn corn of the crop of 1895 being movec
now and a great deal of last year's crop
The farmers held their corn last seasoi
wherever they could. Only those who were
pressed for money sold their corn , but now
they are letting go of It all along the line
The result Is a bigger freight business than
wo have handled for a long time , compelling
us to run about as many extra freight trains
as wo can conveniently handle. "

Hullway company to provide band music for
the parks since Its receipts are enormously

any entertainment of the excursionists

Garbagcmastcr MacDanald will gel no more
protection of his garbage hauling monopoly
from the police court. City Prosecutor Miller
yesterday announced that he would not file
any more Informations In police court against
parties on the charge of hauling without a
pormlt or dumping In the city limits In viola ,
tlou of MacDonald's contract until the garbage
muddle wa fettled by the council. He de
cided up on this became Police Judge Gordon
will not convict In the cases.
In the now batch of cases started by Mac-
Donald. In which the charge Is hauling with
out a pormlt. Judge- Gordon takes the same
position as heretofore. He holds that the city
charter does not authorize any department of
the city government to Issue permits for haul-
Ing. Ho docs not look upon MacDonatd as a
city official and will not recognize that ho has
power to Issue permits. Since there Is no
ono from whom permits can bo obtained ,
Judge Gordon holds therefore that a charge
of hauling without a permit cannot hold good.
The police Judge Ins objections against the
charge of dumping In the city limits.
Thu city charter provides that no garbage
or refuse shall bo deposited at any point
within thrco miles of the city limits. Hut
If the police judge should convict the men
brought before him for violating this
ordinance ho says ho would be holding the
city guilty of doing exactly the same thing.
Ho asserts that the city engineer and other
city authorities have authorized haulers to
dump hundreds of loads of refuse matter In
washouts and holes within the city limits
and consequently docs not see how he could
punish any one for something that the city
authorities Instruct him to do.
The point was raised In the case of James
llooncy , who was arrested Wednesday by
MacDonald's spcclil officers for dumping a
load of rubbish In a washout nt Thirty-fourth
street and Poppletoii avenuo. When Ilooney
was arraigned , ho showed a permit from
Street Commissioner Heverly. authorizing
him to dump a number of loads In the place
Indicated.
Judge Gordon Intends to make this a test
case of the ordinance . He refused to dis
miss the case , and Insisted that the street
commissioner should be subpoenaed to testify
regarding the authority he had to Issue
such permits. The trial will occur next
Saturday afternoon.

college and took a walk with her. During
the walk they did not quarrel , hilt she said
something to him which she says might
have depressed him , but she had no Idea
that he had any Intention of killing him
self. Members of the Shultz family also
say that the man was In a very cheerful
frame of mind when they saw him.
Wednesday morning when the Marohns
arose at their home at Leigh they found
three letters from Gustavo , in all of which
ho intimated that ho Intended to do away
with himself on account of some great grief.
His relatives at once supposed that he had

County ClerK Mel Redflcld , who proposes
to run independent for the same ofllco this
fall , recently began his campaign by under
taking to get back Into the Union Vet
erans' Republican club , from which he was
expelled last spring. The manner In which
this attempt was sat down upon was only
equaled by his last spring's experience with
the club.
Redfleld was dropped from the rolls be
cause he bolted the Republican ticket last
spring. About a week ago ho put In an np-
ollcatlon for reinstatement. This application
was rejected with practical unanimity , for
the votes cast In favor of the reinstatement
numbered not more than half a dozen.
The Union Veterans' Republican club Is

Almost any shoe store will sell you School Shoes that
are good. You can also get the kinds that arc cheap.
It isn't so caRy to find those that are good and cheap
at the same time. There isn't much profit in selling a
good , honest , all leather School Shoe for a dollar but
we arc doing it forced to do it. Mothers who know
us to be low on Suits wouldn't allow us to be high on
Shoes. We don't want to be high. All we want is to
accommodate folks who buy Suits from us and to pro
tect them from Shoes that are made of inferior stuffs
poor leather old harness shavings paper machc.
Shoes of that kind are dear at any price because they
won't wear. Our prices for good Shoes are $1-00 ,
$1.25 , $1.50. Those at a dollar are as good as you get
elsewhere for a dollar and a half , Good , honest up
pers. Good , honest counters. Good , honest soles.
These are a guarantee of good , hoasst wear. If you
are tired of paying high prices or getting poor Shoes ,

There Is eomc tilk among members of the
Board of Education of establishing more
rigid regulations to govern the attendance of
non-resident pupils In the Omaha schools.
The present rules provide that the annual
feu from non-resident pupils shall be $35 for
attendance at tbo High tcliool , $15 in tlio
grammar grades and $10 In the primary
grades. In nine cases out of ten the rule IB
evaded and the total receipts of tuition fees
do not average $100 a year. This Is not be-
caiue there are no non-resident pupils In the
schools , but In nearly every case the pupil
from out of town discovers that he or she has
a relative In Omaha and application Is made
for admission as a resident pupil on the
ground that ho or she is living with the
Omaha relative. As a matter of fact this Is a
mere subterfuge , as the pupil returns homo
during vacations and leaves Iho city for good
as soon as the desired cducitlonal advantage.1 :
are acquired ,
In view of the fact that the Ilonul of Educa
tion U confronted by n never ending deficit In
HH funds , It-Is urged that It Is about time that
pupils who como hero from other points are
made to pay their share of the expense of sup
porting the Echools.
In Kansas City the recolptn from nonresident
dent pupils amounted to $2,000 last year ami
It Is believed that If the rules were strictly
enforced In Omaha something approximating
that amount would bo raised here. The board
has usually granted special permits to pupllH
who live In Douglas county , outsldo the city
limits and It Is also suggested that while
tills Is a very pleasant courtciy , so far as the
country precincts are concerned , there Is no
equitable reason why people who do not pay
city taxes should bo allowed to enjoy the
benefits free of cost.
