The protest against the application for liquor license to Fritz Blocmer , 1601 Leaven- worth street , was heard before the license board jestOrday" afternoon , The question mainly considered was that Of the applicant's good faith In publishing his liquor notice In the World-Herald ( without exercising due diligence , as required by law , In ascertain ing which paper had the largest circulation In the county. The protestants , The Uee Publishing company , submitted the evidence of James II. Davis , who testified that he had called the attention of IJlocmer to proof that the circulation of The lleo was the largest In the county and that his words had not liceu given consideration. D. Roaowatcr gave the evidence that Illoemcr had said In J'ls hearing that It would be preferable to gho ? 1.000 to the World-Herald rather than $10 to The Dee. Other testimony was heard tending to show that iBlocmer had been Im pelled by other motives In publishing his notice than a deslro to comply ivith the 3 aw. The applicant himself tool : the stand and Bald that he had made an honest endeavor to ascertain the relative circulations of the newspapers of the county. Ho admitted , however , that ho had not applied to their bcvcral ofllccs for proof of circulation , but had based his knowledge upon the opinion of a neighboring saloon keeper and upon a resolution rendered by the board. G. iM. Hitchcock was heard In regard to the con tents of the morning and evening news papers published by the World Pub lishing company. Ho asserted that the editions were delivered to different sets of subscribers , but admitted that the substance matter In them mas not the same. IHe acknowledged that telegraphic and market reports In the evening paper wore entirely now to that edition and similarly to the morning newspaper. The decision In the case was deferred. Tlio following application * for liquor licenses were issued , there being'no protests and the law having been complied with : Fritz Mullcr. 1724 Vlnton ; D. W.

The fair will bo attended by thou- Eancls. Dullness Is better everywhere , and next summer tlm people will seek such pleas ures. Those of the cast will bo anxious to got nn opportunity to study the resources of the wcat close at home. The attendance at the exposition will be nearly as large , If not fully as large , as that of the World'j falf. Other western states ha\o made ap propriations for the ptirposo of making cicd- Hablo dlsplajs of their resources. The last legislature refused to make an appropriation for this purpose , but a vice coresident for Washington Ins boon appointed. 'Tho largest and best building In the ex position will be devoted to the mining In terests and this state should have a display Her mines arc in their Infancy , but aie destined to bo ono of the most Inportant of the state's resources. "Tho east should be Informed of the wealth of this state through n largo display. Two cost would not bo large and the returns would bo Immense. The Chamber of Commerce - merco should advocate this matter , and the money necessary to defray the expenses should bo raised by popular subscription. The other resources of Washington hbould also bo given a place , but I consider the mines of the most Importance. " IHdM nil AViilkM anil Driven.

A highwayman got a llttlo too close to the fire last night In attempting to rob Mrs. Ada Oarley , within a block of the police station. IIo was captured , owing largely to the prompt work of Mrs. Carley , and the stolen prcpertj was recovered. Tlie attempt was made at S'30 o'clock , just as the woman was passing the alley on Fourteenth , between Howard and Jackson streets. Mrs Carley had been visiting a friend and was on her way home , which is at Fourteenth and Howard streets. She ea > s that the cobber came out of the alley and without warning threw his hand across her mouth and with the other tried to wrest a pocketbook fiom her hand. Mrs. Carley tried to scream , but was unable to make a sound , and the street wan deserted. S5io clung to the oocketbook , however , and the robber , who Is a powerful man , was obliged to hurl her to the ground before he obtained It. He then ran west through the alley and Mrs. Carley hurried to the pollco station and gave the alarm. Detectives Sullivan and Hudson took up the rtiase and searched the buildings and outhouses across the street from the station. Their arrival upon the flccno was so protrpt that the highwayman was obliged to hunt cover and to k up lodg ing In a srcall outhouse adjoining tbo alley. Ho was discovered here by Detective Hudson rmd made no struggle. Ho assorted his Innocence - nocenco and said he- had just stopped In on his way down town. Mrs. Carley was able to Identify him positively , however , and other circumstances were conclusive of tils guilt. The outhouse was searched and the pocketbook - book was found. The contents , $1.50 In silver cmd a souvenir ot Cuban liberty , had been taken out and thrown away separately , but the whole was finally recovered. The hlRhv.aymati proved to be a fairly well dressed joung man about 20 years old. He gave the name of James Bolyn , and talj he lived near Thirty-sixth and Davenport streets. In his pocket was a membership card of Horseshocrs' union No. 4 of Chicago , 111. , made out lii the name ot Michael Lander.i , There were also the business cards of sev eral horseshoeing firms In Chicago. Bolyn has a smooth , bojlsh face , with well formed features , and Is evidently an athlete. The woman ho attempted to rob is a clalrvojant Her face Is palnhilly bruised from hcc fall.

"While In Now York , I signed a contract for the occupancy of the Ames building , Six. tcenth and Farnam streets , and the People's Furniture and Carpet company will move In there on February 20.

AB fans been the custom , all pupils whoso rating Is up to the standard will bo promoted. This rating la now madeup principally from the dally work In the classes , very little attention being paid at the present time to examinations. In DISCO where the work1 of a pupil Is not en tirely sat'afactory and the dally averages fall below a certain per cent an examination U required before promotion Is made. It Is claimed by Superintendent Munro that stu dents do better work under the Bjstom now In vogue than under the old plan ot examlna. tlons at stated periods. In the first place 1 prevents cramming and the student exercises moro care In h' ' deportment and dally work Pupils whoso dally average la up to the. standard throughout the term nro exempt from examinations. This plan Is now being used In all the principal educational Institu tions of the cotcitry and so far has proved much more satisfactory than the eli method. ! An examination ot the records shows that a large majority ot the pupils who have at' ' tended the public schools regularly during the flret half of this term will .be . promoted t the opening of the sccslon on Monday This certainly speaks well for the city , the superintendent of schools and the teachers. At the present time the enrollment is 2,800 and sixty-one , teachers nro emplo > ed. South Omaha ranks third In the schools of the state. Omaha of rourso comes first with 305 teachers , Lincoln next with 140 teachers while South Omaha Is third , Fremont fourth Ueatrlco tilth and Nebraska City sixth. The growth of the South Omaha schoo's Is shown by the enrollment for the last four jcais. In 1S94 the enrollment was 2,200 ; In 1895 It was 2,512. In 1S9C , 2.CI5 and at the cloee of the jcar 1S97 It was 2,802. With the opening of the spring term on April 1 at least 100 more pupils are expected. Super Intendcnt Munro seems to think that this number of childrenwtio / have never attended the public schools before will start in and ho estimates that by the close of the present jear1 the enrollment will be nt least 3,000 The schools. Superintendent Munro eajs , are now suffering for lack of sufficient high school acconunodatlors and he asserts that It the city grows as much during tbo prcsenl jcar as It did last > car at least sis more school rooms will bo needed , or In other words , accommodations for 300 pupils. This is In addition to the needs of the High school. Those who are Interested in the school sjstein here assert that for $35,000 a high school building largo enough to last for fif teen joara can bo erected. By doing this the graded schools would be relieved , as the High school takes up the room of 200 pupils. All of the members of the Hoard of Educa tion admit the necessity for better school accommodations , but It seems a hard matter to Induce the people to vote bonda for a new building. There Is no Indebtedness ngalnst the school district here , no bondo having over been , voted for the support of the schools or for the erection of buildings. It la thought that an effort will bo made to bring the proposition to vote $30,000 in bonds before the people before long in order to relieve the crowded condition of some of the schools. There Ins been a decided Improvement In the health of the public school pupils during the last few weeks. Illness preventedmanj from attending during November and De cember , but now all classes are well at tended , very few being absent ra account of ( sickness. PuAliiK COIHIMIIIJ'H < : n n run too. City .Attorney Montgomery Is just now en gaged > ln looking up the legal side of the question of releasing a portion of the guaran tee of the California Asphalt and [ Petroleum company. At the time the contiact for pav ing Twenty-fourth fc'ircet from A to Q street was entered Into with this company it wan stipulated that the city should retain 15 per cent of the con'.iuct pi Ice , or ? 1G,500 , as a guarantee that the company would keep the pavement In good repair for five jears from the completion of the work. Owing to legal complications with which the company had nothing 'to ' do the pavement was completed in section. ' , the northern portion having been completed some months before the southcin end was finished. The paving company was willing to allow the guarantee to commence from the final completion , of the work , and ot course 'this ' was satisfactory to the city. In arranging for the guarantee the paving company deposited with the city treasurer bonds of the paving district. A poitim of these bonds , amounting to ? 7DO ) , matured c October 1 last , and the city facnt the money to New York to redeem tiiom. As the bonds were being held on the guaianteo the fiscal agency could not release them , and neither the city or the paving company is deriving any interest from this amount of money. The company desires that these matured bonds bo lelcased by the city In oiJcr that It may have the use of tie money. Jtcpro- sentatlves ot 'the company ussoit tiiat the remaining $ 'J,000 is ample guarantee- for the nine months which the gununtco holds gocd. Some members of the council appear to bo In favor of granting the request or t'ie ' pav ing people , but It was deemed best no to take any acticn until a wrlt'y.1 opinion Lad been received from the attorney. Jir. Mont gomery Is now at work on the opinion , which will bo presented to ' ( ho count.ll next Mon day night. KiiiU-nec for the City. fa years gene by the city has been bled for hunJreds of dollars by means of damage suits. In many cases when such ( suits came up In court It was found that the city led no defense , all record of the case having been lost , mislaid or something of the sort. Only recently Major Ensor took itcps to prevent any moro Iccsea of this kind , and now when a person flies a claim for d images alleged to have been received by falling on a defective sidewalk , street crossing or onmo- thlng of the kind theio is an Immediate In vestigation. In a recent case where a claim was filed the mayor employed two physicians to make on examination and return a written report. The city has- declined to settle , and when the case cornea up In court the icpoit of 'these two doctors will bo produced from the flies In the clerk's office and Introduce ! as evidence. In this way the mayor Inp to save the city considerable money. At the last meeting of the council the mayor wuu authorized to employ 'two ' phjalclano to ex amine the alleged itijuiles of Alex Si.nlegcl , who claims to have been Injured by falling Into the gas trenches on N street. In ttddl- tlcti to this evidence the mayor has the en at of police and city attorney collect what cvl- dcnco is deemed necssEary , and th s U clso filed away to bo used when the tlma ccmro , Those who are Interested In the welfare o ( the city think It better to spend a 'ew i1 ' trs In compiling evidence than to run the chinus of having judgments for largo amounto rc- coidcd against the city.
