Art Director Orimtlu notified the ex
position management jcstcrday that ho
lias now secured possession of the famous
painting , "The Fall of Babylon , " for which
ho has been negotiating for the last two
This painting Is by Georges Rochcgrosse , a
contemporary artist of the French school of
Vcrtallles. Ho was a pupil of Jules Lcfcbrc
and Boulangcr. He took his first medal In
1882 , and , In the succeeding year , the Grand
Prix Salon. "The Fall of Babylon , " after
taking n prlzo , was purchased by a syndi
cate In Qhlcaga for exhibition purposes
throughout the country. It was subsequently
sold to n New York syndicate. The picture
is a large one. fully forty feet long and
twenty feet high. The figures arc life size ,
nnd among them nrc a score of nuJo wo
men , the choice companions of a uleasure-
lovlng prince. It Is owing to this fact not
less than to the marvelous skill of the artist
that the celebrity of the picture Is due , for
an Interesting part of the long battle over
the nude In art has been fought over this
very painting.
Twenty years ngo Mr. Griffiths secured It
for an exhibition in Toronto. One of the di
rectors of the coclcty under whoso auspices
the exhibition was given objected so strcngly
to the plcturo that he resigned his position
when overborne by his colleagues. It was
duo to the prudish sentiment of those op
posed to the nude In art tint Rochugroaso
was Induced to Introduce a wreath of roses
upon the central figure. As originally ex
hibited tlic painting was minus this wreath.
H Is almost unnecessary to add that the
wreath added to the suggestlyeness.
The sto.'y which the picture tells Is morn
ing In Babylon after a bacchanalian de
bauch. Many of the Inhabitants are asleep ,
but a fe\v restless ones awake to find that
the Macedonians arc battling ut the gate.
It has never been reproduced as a whole.
Several fragments have been reproduced , but
none of them do Justice to Rochcgrosse's
, w ork ,
Mr. Griffiths states in his letter to the
Department of Exhibits that he Intends to
uhow the painting In some of the eastern
cities to assist In defraying the expense
necessary In securing It for Omaha. Ho
will forward to Omaha at once.

Architect Clas of Milwaukee , who Is a
member of the Wisconsin Exposition com
mission , will visit Omaha some time next
week for the purpose of looking over the
exposition grounds with a view of selecting
a site for the handsome building which Wis
consin Intends to erect on the grounds. In
this connection .Mr. Clas has expressed his
views In the Milwaukee Sentinel regarding
the character of the building which ho will
suggest to his associates of the commission.
Mr. Clas has offe-red to dceiate a plan for a
Btato building , and his suggestions In that
line will probably be adopted. In his InterView -
View In the Sentinel he says :
"I shall prepare a rough pencil sketch
of n Wisconsin building , according to my
own Ideas , ti bo submitted to my associates
upon the committee. The building I have
in my mind will bo without referancc to all
ideas of the conventional club house. I
would have a building of the classical order ,
with a wide frieze , upon which would be a
series of historic pictures In has relief showIng -
Ing the development of the state. In short ,
I would connect the building at Omaha with
our semi-centennial , which will be cele
brated at the same time In this state. The
building could have a glass roof , and bo
provided with a fish pcnd and cases con
taining fish from the state hatchery , which
are the fines ! In the country , and would be
a feature of the exposition. I would have
the space a'nnut the pond filled In with
palms and flowers and trailing vines , nnd
out of the midst of them i-hould come belling -
ing up the famous spring waters of our
Badger state. At the four corners of the
structure I would have large statues of com
merce. Industry , education and agriculture ,
end upon the pedestals oa which they are
placed , In hr ef outline , I would have the
history of their development In the state.
Let the whole thing take upon Itself the
appearance of a winter garden. What would
it cost ? Not a great deal. It would be a
mere shell covered with staff say $8,000 or
$10,000 for the buildings , and $5,000 more
for the statuary and furnishings. I till nit
I could get the four figures of education ,
industry , commerce and agriculture for
about JJOO eich. "

Proposition Orilcrril llruivii
for ( In- Voting or ? itOII,00
IloiulN at tlio Coining
( ( nrriil iioctlnii.
Neither President Lunt nor Vice President
Pen told wct\j present at the regular meeting
of the Hoard of Education last night , and
Phil E. Winter was elected president pro
tern. There was comparatively llttlo business
to bo transacted , and the bulk of the evening
was occupied by the discussion of the report
of the special committee on the qucstlu.ii of
submitting at the coming election a prtyosl-
tlon to vote bonds I'or the erection of a new
high school. The matter was brought up In
committee of the whole , and Anderson sub
mitted the report wlilch detailed the existing
conditions at some length. The committee
suggested that It was not necessary to build
an entirely new building at this time. It
favored the erection of an addition , which
would eventually become a pait of the now
building , and which would provide quarters
to : the manual training dcar > mcnt , the scien
tific laboratories , several clap.i rooms and an
assembly locm. Such a building could bo
constructed fcr from $73,000 to $100,000 , and
the committee recommended that a proposi
tion be submitted to vote bonds In that
Hess and Dennis declared themselves In
favor of building an entirely new building ,
and Superintendent Danker stated that a
modern stnictu.c would cost about $5OOU a
room , and that If the plans could bo ready
by tlio ( list of the year the entire building
could bo completed without Infringing move
than one month on the regular school work.
Principal Levlstou declared that It would
rcqulie at least sixty rooms to properly ac
commodate 'the school. He detailed sonic of
the Inconveniences arising from the present
crowded condition , and Sears offered a reso
lution which provided that a committee of
the fehould be appointed to draw UN a prop
osition contemplating un issue of $250,000 In
Dr. Mooto also declared himself opposed
to "piecemeal" building and he emphasized
the Importance of a comparatively low struc
ture on account of the serious Injury to the
health of pupils resulting from climbing
long ( lights of etalrs.
Tuc lucaa of the members enlarged as the
debate continued. Hess moved t.mt the
amount bo Increased to $300,000 , the addi
tional $30.000 to be used to furtvish the build
ing , and Van Gilder contended that $300,000
ihould be expended on the building regard
less of the fuinlshlng.
Amlctboti suggested that while It was all
very well to become enthusiastic over a new
high school , If a proposition to vote $300,000
was placed before the people It would be
defeated. There were many people who con
sidered the high school a good deal of a
luxurj , anyway , and wnile ho would like to
see a new high school iU3 well as any one
be believed that It would be Impossible to
secure enough mor.sy to erect the whole
building at once ,
Johnson thought the bond proposition was
premature at this time. While the new
building was Ladly needed , there was no
gro.it public sentiment In Us favor and there
was not sulllclent time before election In
which to properly agitate the matter. He
was not in favor of submit 'ing the proposi
tion until the time was ripe for Its endorse
ment. He moved as a substitute that ( leal
action be postponed to a special meeting to
bo held later In the week , hut this was lost
in the parliamentary shulilc ai..l the com-
mltteo voted to report In favor of a $300,000
In regular session the report of the com
mittee of the whole was adopted and the
judiciary committee with the president of
the board , superintendent of schools , super
intendent of buildings and attorney , was In
structed to draft the proposition and sub
mit it to the board at a special meeting
Wednesday night.
G. R. Hathbun , Instructor In the commer-
clal department at the High school , asked
the board to select a committee of three
oxp&r s to examine him In regard to h's
qualifications In order that ho might not
lie accused of being employed on account of
a "political pull. " Hess moved that the re
quest be granted , but the minority objected
to the expense of a special examination
at this time and suggested that the matter
he allowed to lie over until the regular holi
day exam'natlons. ' This view prevailed.
The recommendation of the committee on
boundaries that the petition for an addi
tional room at the Davenport school be
placed on tile , was referred back for further
investigation. It developed that there were
only two persons whose names were on the
petition who had children who would bo
affected by the change demanded.
Appllcatlcns for positions as teachers from
Isabclle Graham , Springfield , 111. ; Saida

OMAHA , Oct. IS. To the Editor of The
Bee : The Nebraska Independent of October
14 sajs :
"In our Issue of September SO wo said-
'The man who will stay away from the polls
on election day nnd pick 'corn Is not much of
a patdot. Ho Is of llttlo value to his party
or his country. Ho Is the sort of man that
It Is necessary to draft In lime of war. ' To
this Mr. A. A. Perry of Omaha , cue of the
chief lieutenants of Vandervoort , takes ex
ceptions. "
I desire to deny the statement that I am
or ever have hee-n a lieutenant under Mr.
Vandcivoort. I left the republican party in
1S72. 1 never held any communication with
Mr. Vandervoort directly or indirectly on the
subject of politics since the St. Louis con
vention that nominated Mr. Bryan. Mr. Van
dervoort , as I umlerbtand It , opposed the elec
tion of Mr. Bryan. I worked day and night
fo.- the success of the Hryan ticket , and on
election day In November , 1S90 , voted the
national and state ticket from top to bottom.
Mr. Vandervoort would hartlly own me for
one of his lieutenants with such a record.
"He ( Perry ) wrote a letter to The Omaha
Bee In which ho frankly admitted that he
cared so llttlo for the privileges of the ballot
and the eove'elgn right of an American citi
zen that It was hls < Intention to pick corn on
election day. "
Perry wrote a letter to Thei Omaha Bee.
> So much and no morc-of the above sentence
Is true , That statement was made , as the
Independent well knows , because I refuse to
be a party to electing a nun to an Important
ofllce. whatever his party , that had no sym
pathy 'with the party to which I had been a
member from the hour of Its blitn.
"Ho beasts of having served In the civil
war. " That's another one. 1 slated the fact
as proof that the "man who picked corn on
election day , " was not "the aort of man that
It is necessary to draft in time of war. "
"For his services In the civil war we give
him honor and c"edlt , but In all sincerity we
ask him if It Is not better for a nation < o
settle Its dllllcultles by ballots rather than by
bullets ? "
You do not "give me honor or credit. "
You Insult me by a slander In the first place ,
and by a little cheap taffy later. As to set
tlement by ballots rather than by bullets.
Yes , a thousand times yes ; and just here
comes In the Nh.une of the Independent and
the generals whom he serves as lieutenant.
To have worked for twenty-live years to help
financial reform nnd then see a set of hungry
demagogues force a man upon the party who
has not so much as one foot in the party ,
gives no encouragement that we can "settle
by the ballot. "
Certainly one can find no reasonable excuse
for helping to build up a party that resisted
the issue of government money and has been
on the wrong side of every great question for
forty years , and Is now on g ound untenable
on the financial question. They claim to
want all dollars made equal , and then demand
the redemptlcn of paper In coin. 1Mb ! I
have been many democrats driven to the
necessity of admitting that money was made
by law , but never one hnnett enough to ad
mit that settled the whole question nnd made
"sweeping dollars" a cheat and a fraud. I
have scon the Independent advocate the pee
ple's party platform month after month , and
then favor the election of men opposed to
every line of the platform.
I have seen he o In Douglas county demo
crats all smiles nnd honey to populists and
then turn them down on election day. I
have seen democrats In Doug'as county elected
to the legislature and then deny their own
platform. For nit > clf , I refuse to tniht them ,
believing a day spent "picking corn" much
more profitable to the people's party , and
much more likely to settle difficulties without
bullets , than It would bo voting a democratic
The people's Independent party nominated
a man for tlio office of supreme Judge at Lin
coln. That \oto has never been reconsidered ,
and If I am to vote. It would be for him , and
not for a man nominated In another conven
tion."It Is a duty , almost a sacred duty , Im
posed upon each and every citizen of a free
republic to study the principles of government
and go to the polls on election day and cast
his ballot for the prnservatlon of his home ,
his country nnd the welfare of future genera
tions , "
It Is a duty , and a eacred duty , for men
who have been honoiod by the people of a
state , or a man editing a paper , or In other
manner assuming tile ofllce of teacher , lode
do his work hone&tly and for the good of all ,
lather than for the iboncs and fishes. It
Is the duty of the pqoplo to be governed by a
majority In a republic ; rather than by a few
picked men to settle In conference , by a
smaller number , what/ the action of a greav
party shall bo. It ls.u crime when n majority
shall bo defeated fiy demagogues end by
wire puller * . It IS'ftj ' crime when men shall
ho denied the p'lvllrde of casting their bal
lots for men who 'IH' do their bidding. It
Is a crime for the inlllor of the Independent
to distort a letter und make the writer wiy
what he never did say.
Open charges are made that men professing
to bo populists , traveled over the state on
[ kisses to pack the convention held In Lincoln.
It IE a fact appareatly , that the lall'oads
would as seer < have Sullivan as Post for
supreme judge.

The Idea of the Ice carnival Is "catching
on" and the society circles are already
planning many features for the festive win
ter season and the enjoyable fete that It will
bring at the exposition grounds. The man
agers of the enterprise , Messrs. Norrls &
Love , are having the plans and sketches pre
pared as rapidly as possible , to be presented
In the columns of The Dee In a few days.
The Indications are that the coming winter
will bo a cold and steady one , and it tills
proves a fact the season to come will never
bo forgotten by the participants , as nsbur-
ances are now given that Omaha will have
features at its winter carnival even sur
passing tho-30 held at St. Paul and Montreal.
The uniformed clubs will iti themselves bo
one of the principal attractions , and It Is
hopeJ they will number Into the thousands
of members , the more the merrier. The club
unllorm is worthy of more than a pa&blng
notice. Tnc suit itself U made from an or
dinary \\oolen bed blanket of such color ns
nny best suit the fancy of the club that
adopts , It. While- light In weight , from four
to live pounds complete , the warmth de
rived from 'Its adoption for the winter's
\\t\uing apparel Is far more healthful nnd
ccmfoi table than can bo obtained Irom the
orthodox dress. It has also the merit of
being jaunty and attractive. The Doe will
outline the uniforms for club members of
botn sexes , and will alto give full informa
tion an to material aivl cost of the dress
complete , Including toque , sash , hose and
footwear. It Is so simple that anj woman
who can run a sewing machine can make
ono at a moderate outlay. The ordinary all-
wool blanket , costing from $4 to $ ri , will
make as picturesque a costume as ono costIng -
Ing $25 or upward , the main difference
being In the color and design of the stripes
In the blanket , which are used as thu trim
Carnival headquarters will be established
In a few daya , after which all Information
drt'lred upon the different features of the
carnival , the organization and uniforming
of clubs , the assignment of committees to
act In concert with the carnival managers ,
the appointment of reception , entertainment ,
decoration and other committees , will be
made and everything nccest-ary ( o the suc
cess of the carnival given Its proper place ,
EO that there may bo no hitch in the arrange
It. next Sunday's Ilec the first coupon
votes for the queen of the carnival will
bo published , together with full particulars
nf the manner of casting the ballots and
counting the same. Watch for It. Cut out
the coupon and place your favorite's name
In the blank tpacc and cast your vote at the
