Probably the most Interesting piece of business at last night's meeting of the city councllmen was the Introduction by Council man Bechcl of an ordinance providing for the repavlng of Farnam street from Tenth to Eighteenth streets. Under this ordinance U Is proposed to tear up the present Btouo pavement and replace- with a smoother pavement probably asphalt. Two Improve ment districts , arc formed , ono extending from Tenth to Fifteenth and the other from Fifteenth to Eighteenth. The ordinance was read a first and second time and referred. Fully fifty ordinances wore Introduced , all but about halt a dozen of these being levy ordinances , levying the cost of paving and Improvements that have been made during months passed against the property ben efited. Other ordinances read a first and second time and referred to committees werq : To grade Marcy street from Thirtieth to Thirty- first streets ; to grade Thirtieth from Lcav- enworth to Mason ; to establish the grade of Twenty-seventh street from Ames avenue to Fowler ; to establish grade of Meredith avenue from Twenty-seventh to Thirtieth ; to establish the grade of Mason from Thir ty-third street to a point 450 feet west ; to narrow Capitol avenue between Seventeenth and Eighteenth streets ; to pave Nineteenth Btrcet from Dodge to Davenport , Instead of from Douglas to Davenport ; to require a license of peddlers ol produce. The ordinance to prevent swindling and overcharging by barbers , Including also the minimum scale of. prices , was passed. Ord inances to grade Thirty-third street liom Davenport to Chicago and permitting the laying of wooden sidewalks upon streets where the srado has not been established were also passed. The council took a hand In arranging for the coming of President McKlnloy by In structing the Board of Public Works to pul the streets about the Omaha club , where the president will he quartered during his stay In the city , In passable condition. The Btrccts are paved with blocks , which are In a rotten and almost Impassable condition. Such repairs will bo made that the president can rldo to the building on a smooth drive way. I.lttlc rrlenilly JiniKlo. The tiff of the meeting arose over a judi ciary commltteo report asking that the mat ter of referring the Initiative and referen dum to the people at the coming election b < recommitted. Councilman ' obeck seemed to think that this was Hlmily a scheme tc bury the matter , ns he Insisted that then Is not time to consider It in a. later council meeting In order to permit of the required publication. Ho also took occasion t ( charge that the chairman of the Judlclarj committee , Mercer , Is not attending to hli duties and falls to attend the Monday com mltteo of the whole meeting. Councilman Mercer stated that ho hat been present at Monday's commltteo meet ing , had brought up the referendum mattei and had been Instructed to ask for more time. Councilman Mount supported Mercer li this statement , saying that ho had hcare Mercer ask what was to be done In the mat ter. Councilman "stuht accused Mercer o being absent from meetings and neglcctlm his duties. . "If this referendum was brough up , whore was I ? " ho demanded. "You wore asleep , I guess , " answerer Mount. "I defy yon to say that I nm over nsleei In council or commltteo meeting , " excltedl ; retorted Stuht and ho pounded his desk The odds were against him , however , fo several other councllmen testified that thi matter had been up. Finally the repor was adopted and more time was given th committee. Later In the meeting Councilman Lobecl said that ho was persuaded by the testl mony that Mercer had brought the matte up and he apologized to the latter. Among the vetoes scntl In by the mayo waa one disapproving an Item of $687.50 1 ; favor of the Kfopp-Bartlott company fo the printing of the annual reports of th city officials. Ho did this for the reasoi that the size of 'the ' book Is limited , neces Bltating the cutting out of Important ! part of the reportB and resulting In a velum that would bo a discredit "to a village. ' The vet * ) , however , was not sustained an the Item was allowed because the councl had agreed , to keep down the size of th book. book.Mayor Moores pointed out that there ar some fifty points In the city where wale hydrants arc needed Immediately , accordln to a report from Flro Chief Itedoll. Th water pipes have been laid , but no hy drants have been attached. The mayor nil vised that some of the hydrants now locate but not needed bo transferred lo the point mentioned. .Snrolnl Improvement Kninl. Mayor Moores also Ecnt In a communlcc tlon , calling attention to the fact that dm Ing the rast year some $10,000 has bee transferred from the general fund to pa bonds and coupons In special Improvcmer districts that have matured. This Is matter that has already been before th council. The shortages In these special In provement funds result from the failure i the property owners to pay their assess mcnts. The mayor recommended that thei bonds i and coupons bo bought by the cit nnd renewal bonds bo Issued for them I order to cecuro the Interest on the genen fund money. About thirty First warders petitioned tin the council order water mains to be lal In their wurds. They stated that their ret rescntatlvo councilman , Stuht , had been ur able to secure the mains. Councilman Stul explained that these mains were the one that had been ordered by ordinance lui April and March , but that the council hr refused < o compel the water company I do the work. He said he was glad that tl Injured citizens were taking the matter Inl their hands.

All , with the -exception f Matt Garner , are now locked up at police icadquarters. The men In custody are : JV. lart. Will Dlxon. alias South ; Frank Jones nd Lowell Adalr. Garner , It Is expected , vlll ho captured In n short time. From rnong these men the police expect to sift he right one. Lowell Adalr , the last one brought 'n. Is ho man who was arrested as the acconiili | ° e f Roy Home , who was shot and killed v.hlle obblng the store of Druggist Farnsworth on Cumlng street some weeks ago. Adalr W.H icver punished for this crime , even though iorne on his deathbed confer e 1 he wad his iccompllce. Adnlr is noi thought to have icon directly connected with Monday iithl'u obbery , but it is bellove.l by the police that 10 knows something about It. Frank Jones Is strongly suspected of h.-.v- ng been Wardlow's companion. The police say that either he or his brother-in-law , Matt Garner , Is the guilty one. The rollre were inclined to think that William Dlxon , alias Wllllnm Smith , wns the man from de scription , but have now concluded that he Is not. When he was brought ln ho wns go ex cited that he gave a very unsatisfactory ac count of himself it tlin time of the robbery but after ho calmed down he convinced Cap- aln Haze that ho was all right. He was ar rested yesterday mom'ns ' by Detectives lavey nnd Cormack. He will be held , however - over , pending the conclusion of the Invest- ! ; atlon. " AVnnllow'n IilenUflvntlon. It was not until yait'jrday morning thai Wardlow's real identity became known Upon his arrest ho gave the name of Fre'l Smith nnd his address as South Omaha Wardlow lives on South Sixteenth s'reet lust below the viaduct , and Is s. member ol the notorious McCnrty gang , to which th < "long and short" holdup men recently ar rested belonged. Ho is a young man scarcely 20 years of age. Captain Haze "sweated" Wardlow yes' ' torday afternoon , but was unabli to get from him more than'i i learful denial of any connection with tin iiold-up. When ho wns arrested n revolve ; with ono cartridge exploded was found it Ills pocket. This shot , It is supposed was fired at Druggist Graham. In explana tion of how ho cumc to bo chased by thi police , Wardlow says ho met the man win was his companion , but whoso name he dli not know , but which ho thinks was Jones on Sixteenth street. They had me previously at Mullen's concert garden As both lived In the same dlrcc tlon. they started away together after taking n. drink at a saloon Ho said they went west on Dodge street ti tbo High school grounds. As they wcr passing the grounds Wardlow said he pullei his revolver , which ho had recently1 pur chased , from his pocket nnd showed It t his companion. To test It ho says his com panlon exploded ono of the cartridges. Thi ho said , explained the empty shell. Aftc reaching Twenty-fourth street ho and hi friend turned south to Fa' < im street , am then started west on tl street. Whei they got midway betweim Twenty-fourtl and Twenty-fifth streets ho snUl ho hean a shot nnd saw two men running townn him , with several people In pursuit. A the men passed ho said ho and bis com panlon Joined the pursuers. He said they chased the men Twenty sixth street , where they turned and ra : west to Harney street. Hero they dlsap peared and ho and his companion con tinned to run west on Harney street. The two officers who chased them fron this point to All Saints' church , on Dewe ; avenue , where he was captured , he say ho thought were highwaymen , especially s when they fired at him. His companlor ho says , returned the officers' lire , but h did not. Wardlow was "sweated" agiln last even Ing hy Captain Hnzo and Chief White , bu nothing could bo gotten frr ' him but hi original story. | Druggist Graham was resti. g easily Ins evening , his wound giving him little trouble Ho did not visit the station yesterday a wns expected , but hopes to bo able to cal nnd look at the suspects this morning.

He was then robbed of a wntth and 5 cents. He oald he bad known the men for five years. His story waa corroborated by hit girl , Emma Nlrk- vlckor , who had stood near by during the robbery. Anton Franc ) , who was robbed of the Mexican dollar found In McDonald's pos session , said he had known Cook for years and nleo McDonald. He was not , however , sure In his Identification of McDonald , as the mask hid his face.

ONE OR MORE HIGH SCHOOLS Superintendent Pearse Favorr the Three- School Idea for Omaha , PATRON CITES HIS OBJECTIONS TO IT Item oily for I'rrnrnt Condition * 11 \i'femH > 'i "nt Widely Dlvrrncut l.iitrrtnlniMl nn to AVhilt IN AilUnlilc. . Superintendent I'carse has given out the following statement with reference to his plan for three High schools 'or publication. "One scheme is to gel plans for a great central High school , to be built on the pres ent High school grounds. One wing of this building would bo put up now beside the present building and used lu connection wilt It. Later another wing would bo put ur nnd used in the sumo way. Finally tht present building would be torn down and the central portion" erected , connecting the two wings and completing the building ac cording to the original designs. "The other scheme Is td erect ono Hlgl school building at some convenient point It the south part of the city and another at i convenient point In the north part. Thcsi two buildings could , and would , probably relieve the present building of about one half the present attendance. This woult permit the use of the unsuitable rooms It the High school to be discontinued , mos of the unsuitable rooms being In the nttl or In the basement. This , nnd some sllgh remodeling , would make the use of thi building practicable for many years , wlthou detriment to the health of pupils nttcndlni It. "Which of the two plans Is better dc pends on the point of view. If the mos Important thing Is to hnvc In the city ni Imposing structure to which every cltlzei may call the attention of his visiting friend nnd which will be noticed by all visitors a one of the monuments to the enterprise am public spirit of our citizens , thcu the grca central High school , upon the present site Is certainly the proper thing. If , on th other hand , the most Important thing Is t secure for the greatest possible number o Omaha children the benefits of a High schoc course , with the Increnscd value to the com munlty which such training gives the stu dent , then It seems equally certain that th proper thing is the scheme placing Hlg schools In those parts of the city most dls tant from the present building. The firs plan would secure the finer building , whlc' must bo planned to provide both for presen attendance and for future growth. At th rate for the last few years , a High schoc of 2,000 or more must bo accumulnted upo the hill In the next eight or ten years. Th second plan would be likely , within th next few years , to Increase the High schoc attendance by several hundred , bringing 1 children who , by reason of the great dlstanc of their homes from the High school , cannc now attend. Wlmt Other CUIejt Do. "St. Louis has only two high school ! though the city is three or four times a largo as Omaha. Piobably for fhc reaso that high school facilities nro lacking I different parts of the city , the high schot attendance there is only a few hundred mor than in Omaha. Many cities much smallc have a far greater hjsh nchool enrollmoi than St. Louis. Louisville , Ky. , has fou high schools. Minneapolis hns four hlg schools. Indianapolis has two high school : ono of twenty rooms , nnd one of thlrt rooms. Kansas City , has three high school ! St. Paul has four high schools. Denver he four high schools. ' Milwaukee hns tli re high schools. Columbus , O. , has three hlg schools. Cleveland hns four high school San Franeslco has three high schools. Wet tester , Muss. , has two high schools. Bosto has eleven high schools. Many cities mcr tloned nro larger than Omaha , though soir of them are smaller. Nearly all are inuc more densely populated , covering fowc square miles In proportion to populatloi Several with greater population cover few < equaro miles than Omaha. In only two < the cities heard from did the reply favc the ono high school Idea. " Vle N of it I'nlrou. The following on the High school subjci Is bygone of the patrons of the school : To the Editor of The Bee : I nm clad note the fact that the Board of Educnth Is discussing the advisability of provldli better facilities for the High school. The who have children attending the High HCho know only too well the great necessity better accommodations than have been pr vlded for the last three or four vears. T ] health mid safety of our children demai Immediate steps looking to the erection a now building and In this connection I d sire to say that It seems to mo that tl sugggestlon of two new buildings Instead ono is not advisable. While It mnv Inco vcnlence some of the citizens In the subur to send their children to the nresent loc tlon of the High school , yet the erection two new buildings , ono In the north ni the other In the south , would make It ne essary to conduct three high schools , 1 creasing the expense enormously and pr vldlng no better high school facilities f those who reside In the southwest , west ui northwest portions of the city than at pre ent. Transportation facilities have been i vastly Improved during the last decade th the Inconvenience of going to school fro the suburbs of Omaha Is not nearly BO gre now as It used to be nnd mnnv of the chl drcn of the older residents of the cltv hn s walked one. two nnd three miles to attei the High school and In all probability we not injured , but on the other hand In enr respects wcro benefited by the exercise. A very largo number of young people w ! deslro to attend the Illnh school rl wheels and by providing a bicycle room the High school thu matter of transport tlon would bo simplified even where ch dren live two or three miles distant. It poor policy. In my Judgment , to expand t High school system before the city Is pr vlded with ono modern , first class HI school building , which we da not possess present Drive one nail at n time. Th Is my doctrine. Let us complete ono Hi Since wnr began our Government In ordered 1,000,000 pairs fchcos. Le than 200,000 were hand sowed , ovi 800,000 pairs were Goodyear \VeIt Shoes.

Some of ( ho advocates of three hi eh schools point to other cities , not much larger than Omaha , having more than one High school , but In many Instances these same cities would bo better off If their High school facilities v > ere consolidated rather than distributed. Tnko Kansas City , for Instance , with three high schools , yet their facilities nro no bet ter , so far as convenience In attendance Is concerned , than In Omaha , for the icason that ono of their high schools IB exclusively for colored children , another ono Is n manual training high school and another for cln M- i ml mid scientific courses. | I think the Hoard of Education should ask the people to vote bonds this fall sufficient to erect at lenst ti part of a new bulldlne on the present High school Bite , tMrXlclently large to relieve the present crowded condi tion and furnish accommodations for n first class manual training scnool , thf Inborn-1 lories and u large number of refItalian , rooms , and. if possible , an auditorium In which the pupils of the High school could bo well seated. I bellovo the citizens of Omaha will gladly vote bonds tor this pur pose If the money Is properly and wisely ex pended , for It Is absolutely wrong to con tinue crowding children .

[ A. TALK WITH MHH. 1'INKIIAM. ] Nearly thirty years of woman's life is a struggle with menstrua tion. From the dawn of womanhood to the calm of middle life , the monthly period is the pivot on which the female existence swings. Tradition handed down from generation to generation has made some women believe that this constantly recurring event must be accompanied by great pain and real sickness. While it is very true that a certain luff amount of discomfort is unavoidable , those prostrating headaches or dull , wearing pains , and in some cases excru ciating agony , are for the most part unnecessary and cruel. The relief from painful men ses , resulting from the use of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound , has been proven conclusively by the testi mony of thousands of wo men. It goes straight to the root of the trouble and relieves quickly and perma nently , c Nature has not intended that women should suffer so , and it is a pity to see beautiful young women fade early in life because of need less pain. Mrs. ( iF.OKQE NKiinnosn , of Critlcndcn , Krio County , KY. . , buys : There is no need for women NJ V to suffer if they will only take Lydia E.

I recom mend it for all women who buffer with painful men struation. Here are letters from two other grateful hearts : From the timeiny courses commenced , every time they came I would suffer terrible pain. I got so bad that I would be taken with fits and would fall. 1 was treated in two hospitals in Now York and in Middletown. Every month I was out of my mind. I thought 1 would try your Vege table Compound ; and after using one bottle , I found it was helping me. I continued its use , and now it is a great surprise to all who know me to see me .so well. J wish to thank you for the great relief I obtained from taking your Vegetable Compound , and would recommend it to all suffering women. Miss IIin.KN HAKHCIIK , ! M3 Atwater St. , New Haven , Conn. I am a girl that lias to work for a living , and am obliged to be on my 'eet a great deal. I was troubled with my menses being irregular and painful , but by following your kind advice I have found relief. I shall never regret the money 1 .spent for your medicine.
