CITY COUNCIL PROCEEDINGS Mayor Approves Ordinance Permitting Bill- road Tucks on Fourteenth Street. DISCUSSION OVER CLEANING THE STREETS Chnlrmnn ltnnewatcr of thi > Board nf 1'nlillc Work * Explain * How He U Hampered In UlnchnrRe of III * Oulle * . Unquestionably the most Important matter at lost night's regular council meeting was an announcement from Mayor Moorcs that he has affixed his signature to the ordinance granting to tbe Omaha Bridge and Terminal company the right of way to lay tracks on Fourteenth street from the north to Hurt street and 'hen ' In a southeasterly direction to Eighth street and Capitol avenue , and also to the ordinance by which the Chicago , St. Paul , Minneapolis & Omaha railroad Is given title And right to twenty feet of the went side of Fourteenth street , between Ginning and Nicholas , thereby transforming both ordinances Into laws and terminating , so far as the council ts concerned , a con- trovcisy that baa lasted for weeks. But while the foregoing matters might be considered of considerable moment , their Importance was cast in the shade by some other , features of the meeting , which were spectacular and exciting , and which were precipitated by an Innocent resolution Intro duced by Lobeck , who wanted the council to rescind the resolution adopted by It a year ago , by which the Board of Public Works was ordered and directed not to remove In the future any snow or Ice from the streets of the city unless specifically ordered to do so by the council. This Is the resolution over which Chairman Rosewater of the Board ot Public Works and the coun cil have locked horns for several weeks. When the council a week ago ordered the board to expend $1,000 in "cleaning" the streets Chairman Rosewater stated In a very emphatic manner that this action was but a grandstand play. He said that he could not employ the money appropriated In clearIng - Ing oft the snow and Ice on the streets , be cause he had not been ordered to do so ; he had simply been told to "crean" the streets under the icy covering. He declared that the council wanted to shift the blame for the filthy streets upon the Board of Pub lic Works and at the same time to pose as desiring to have the streets cleaned. A little desultory discussion on the measure ensued and then the flrst firebrand was cast by City Engineer Rosewater when he was called upon to explain. Talk * Out In Meeting. "I do not think that the Board ot Public Work * needs a guardian or any one to de clare how much It shall expend In the work cut out for it , " he declared. "The council has allowed bills aggregating hun dreds of thousands of dollars for politico1 purposes "Do you mean the present council ? in terjected Councilman Stuht. "I mean that some of the members , of the present council had a hand in It , " responded City Engineer Rosewater. "Men who ap prove such bills are hardly In a position to pass upon bills that the Board of Pub- llo Works may Incur. But returning to thla resolution. It was not adopted after consul tation with the head of the department , but was drawn up by some disgruntled councilman. I do not propose to bo mealy mouthed about this matter. Within a month after It was passed certain members o" this council wanted me to violate tbat reao lutloa by cleaning the snow and ice oft thi street in front ot certain firms they fa vored. "Thiswinter you are trying to avoid thi responsibility for the condition of thi streets , -which has resulted in the killing o several horses and the serious injury of a fireman , although you , abolutely refuse to rescind the resolution by which the board bes been prevented from cleaning them. Why ? Because that resolution was adopted to hamper and hem in the board becausr I refused to get down on my knees In an wcr to some ot the councilman and re fused to accede to the disgraceful demand ! ot some members who are in the councl ring. "One councilman demanded that I choul employ a man who had committed a crime who bad tampered with the ballot box , am' tie held this criminality as a recommend * tlon In his favor. I refused that demand Then this ring of seven members , four o which dominate this council ot nine , me In caucus a coward's retreat a retreat 1 , which boodlers can work out their boodlln schemes " . "Am I In that rlnir. " hotly broke In Presl dent Blngham. "I do not say that you are , " was the answer. "If you say that I am In such a ring , I'll adjourn this council and show you where I am at , " angrily retorted the president. Mercer 1 * Hard Hit. City Engineer Rosewater went on. He de clared that the flrst opposition from the council resulted from some letters received by him in recommendation of the Improve ment he bad made In tbe condition of the streets. Councllmen were afraid that ho was getting too much credit. "What councllmen ? " asked Stubt. "Mr. Karr told me tbat you had taken the principal part In the work against my department , " rejoined tbe city engineer , "and that the others backed you. " "Tbat Is true so far as that resolution la concerned , " testified Councilman Karr. "I want to explain about that criminal employe business. " broke In Councilman Mercer. "I atked Mr. Rosewater to employ Andrew Wiggins , who bad been my loyal friend and worked for my election. Mr. Rosewater refused. I think Wiggins Is far more efficient than half the men Mr. Rosewater - water now has. The only reason why ho refused my request was that Wiggins was u n enemy ot some candidate he favored. " "I'd like to be put under oath regarding Ihls matter. " answered the city engineer. "Mr. Mercer told mo that Wiggins tampered with tbe ballots In bis behalf and said that he must bo appointed on the city force In order to save him. Let me ask you some- Words of Praise.

Why did you try to tamper with my clerks when they wer drawing up the levy for the Walnut Hill grading and urge them to violate my In structions ? " Mercer paid no attention to the last ques tion , but further explained the Wiggins affair. He said that Wiggins declared he knew something about the election that would benefit him In hta contest , but re fused to divulge It unless he wa * given a job. When the time came Wiggins knew nothing. For some time longer tbe discussion con tinued , gradually growing cooler. It finally narrowed down to the resolution that pre cipitated it and ultimately tbe roll was called upon It. Burkley , Burmester , Karr , Lobeck and Blngbam voted In favor ot rescinding the troublesome resolution , while Mercer , Mount and Stuht recorded votes in the negative. Consequently City Engineer Rocewater will be able to ex pend the $1,000 appropriated a week ago In cleaning oft snow and Ice from the downtown streets. > ew I'ark Cummlmlon. The Appointments by the mayor of J. H. Cvans , H. E. Palmer , E , J. Cornish , J. L. Brandcli and George W. Llnlnger as park commissioners were confirmed. Mr. Brandels succeeds C. E. Bates and Mr. Ltnlngcr succeed * John C. Wbarton. who resigned. Guy C , Barton was orig inally appointed to fill the latter vacancy , but declined the office. The threatened fight on Brandels did not materialize , Blngham being the only mem her to vote against his confirmation. Tbe councilman explained that when he voted for the ordlnanc * giving the mayor the power to appoint the park commissioners b * did so on the understanding tbat the existing board would be reappolnted , with the exception of Wharton. For this reason he voted against the appointment and not because of any feeling against Mr. Bran dels. dels.Tbe Tbe resolution requiring that all clt > printIng - Ing and lithographing shall bear the label of the Allied Printing Trades council was for mally adopted. Stuht and Mount voted against It. The latter Insisted that tbe rcso lutlon Is In violation of the charter. Coun cilman Stuht did not explain his vote. Leave of Absence for IJevcrlr Street Commissioner Beverly , who Is one of Douglas county's representatives in the state legislature , wa * granted * lxty day * ' leave ot absence the length of the legisla tive session but 4t waa not settled whether he should draw hi * salary during thta time. A resolution granting the leave without re ferring to the matter of the salary was In troduced first by President Blngham. The question immediately arose whether the reave waa with or without pay. Blngham stated that he was willing to let the street , commissioner's salary run on during his absence. The sentiment prevailed that the granting ot the leave would carry with it tacit agreement that tbe salary should be paid. Four members thought that the street commissioner should not draw a salary from the city and another from the state at the same time. These four were Burkley , Lo beck , Mount and Stuht and they voted against the resolution. Burmester , Karr , Mercer and Blngham cast affirmative votes. Bechel being absent , the adoption ot the resolution therefore failed. Later Blngham Introduced another resolu tion granting the leave on the agreement that "Its passage does not carry with it or refer to the question of salary. " This was adopted. Favor the KzpoHltlon. Councilman Karr Introduced the follow ing resolution , which was unanimously passed : Whereas , The successful conduct of the great Transmlsslsrlppl Exposition recently closed has reflected great credit upon the city of Omaha , baa called the attention of the people of tba country to the city a * never before and baa brought In a new era of pros perity ; and Whereas. Tbe citizens of Omaha are con sidering the feasibility of holding another exposition in Omaha thi * year to be known as tbe Greater America Exposition ; there fore be It Resolved. Bv the city council , the mayor concurring , that , believing as we do that such an exposition would be of great benefit to the city of Omaha end state ot Nebraska , therefore we endorse said project and pledge it our staunch support. The request ot the Board of Education that the alley In the rear of the new Pacific school site be graded by the city was re fused , as tbe board was informed that the council will not do the work until a proper petition , cuch aa 1 * required in other cases , Is filed.

BLAZE FROM AN UPSET LAMP 1 Little France * Everest and Her Father of 2031 Parker Street Are Seriously Domed. Frances Everest , a child 3 years ot age , was seriously burned last evening In a blaze that resulted from an overturned lamp. The little one's Injuries may prove fatal. The father Is L. J. Everest and the accident oc curred In the dining room ot his home at 2631 Parker street shortly after 6 o'clock. While the mother was busy preparing sup per little Frances , who bad been left for a few minutes to amuse herself in the dining room , began to tug at the cloth covering the table. On tbe table stood a lighted lamp. H was drawn with the cloth Inch by Inch to the edge and then it toppled and fell. In an instant the cloth , carpet and tbe child's clothing were ablaze. Her screams brought the father to her aid and he smothered the flames with tali coat , but not before hia baby' * limb * had been badly burned. An alarm ot fire was sent In by one of the neighbors who saw the blaze , but It was ex- tlngulihed without the aid of tbe depart ment. Mr. Everest aUo was burned about tbe hands and a physician was called to dress his Injuries and those of the child. The doctor said that the little one was very badly burned , but tbat he had hopes for Its recovery. The lees from the fire amounted to only a few dollars. Hllpped on lor Walk. George Munroe , a car builder whose home la in Denver , slipped on the icy eldewalk laat night In front of 1314 Farnam street and received a hard fall. He waa severely Injured on the right hip. HEARD ABOUT TOWN. "Mining , " said Joseph T. Brown of Miles City , Mont. , "why , there ts more and more ot It every year In Montana. But that Is not what I waa going to talk about. I wanted to tell you of a casual meeting In Miles City over a decade ago between Gov ernor Teddy Roosevelt of New York , the Ill-fated Marquis de Mores and a wild-eyed cowboy. Roosevelt and the marquis were In a little log saloon drinking snake medi cine when In swaggered the cowboy. " 'Dance , you little pup of a half-starved coyote ! ' yelled the newcomer , flashing a big horse pistol and pointing Its muzile at the hero of the Rough Riders. Whether It was because he was taken o suddenly or uad not learned to dance In Is boyhood , I don't know , but there Teddy loojevelt , the 'dude cowboy from New York , ' , s we all called him , stood stock still with- mt moving a leg , while we ihrunk around , breathlessly expecting that all his hopes , anchlng or political , would be suddenly cut ihort by a chunk of hot lead from the drunken cowboy's treaiendous Colt. Reese elt's imperturbability was too much , and t unnerved the cowboy. Turning away with dlsguct the latter began to pay atten- lon to the marquis. " 'Will you have a little drink with us ? he young scion of Gallic nobility invited him , In the mildest of tone and with a soft French accent that was excruciating. Til ako a little wine ? ' said the marquis , tuni ng to the bartender. " 'You measfy bullet-headed Frenchman , ' hundercd the cowboy In a voice that was almost a screech , 'you'll take whisky , you will , ' at the same time swinging his weapon so as to get a bead on the marquts. Quick aa lightning a report came , the cowboy's pls- : ol fell to tbe floor and his hand hunc limp by his side. All we saw was the smoking revolver of. the marquis. I don't know to this day how It happened how that mild mannered little Frenchman did It and I never saw a wild and woolly cowboy more aken aback. " 'I will have little wine ' a , said the mar quis , repeating his order , 'and our friend here will take some water ! ' his tone still being ot the most tantalizing- ! quiet kind. ' 'If you'll permit me , ' broke In the cow boy , humbly , I'd like to take whisky , and the drinks are on me ! ' "I remember putting In an otherwise dull Sunday at a negro Baptist church In a small Tennessee town , " said Clayton White of New York , the well known theatrical man , as be stood In one ot the downtown hotels yesterday , reeling off stories by the yard. 'This church waa the only attraction in the place , and , Inasmuch aa our company was billed to play a night in tbe same edl flee , It was the most natural thing that I should become a model church goer on the Lord's day , and make a good Impression on the people of the place , nine-tenths of whom were colored , and most of them admirers of Elder Andrew Jackson , as the white-haired old darky minister called himself. "Several hymns were sung In the characteristic style and then there were a few fervent prayers by the pastor and some very eloquent deacons. The sermon fol lowed. It was on the text : 'All Things Are Possible to Him That Bclleveth. ' " 'And now. ' said the minister after leadIng - Ing up to his subject by a confusing mass of scriptural quotations , giving book , chapter and y > rse for each , Tse gwlne ter gib to youse black Iambs ob de good Lawd'e flock de bery authorltlylty from de book ob de Most High , which am i'gwlne to con vlctlfy ebery sinner In de Ian * dat wars di wool. ' "He turned to his fclble to read th quotation ho had In mln(5 ( , .little recking ' that some bright urch'fp bad previously pasted several of the leaves together. Then he read : " 'And dls yar eon ob Belial took unti himself a wife * ( turning over , as he sup posed , to the next page ) 'forty cubits long and sixteen cubits broid. ' "Adjusting his spectacles so aa to b certain of the startling revelation , he read It again. With an air of deep satisfaction he raised the whites of his eyes to his In tensely Intereated congregation and com merited : ' 'Deah chlllun ob de White Lamb , dls I de bery passage what I's been prognosticating for , an 'It am de bes' proof from de highest authorltlvlty an * shows how truly an' won'erfully we'se made. ' "I stuck through that service , -but If I had not been schooled long and hard In wearing a solemn look on all occasions I should have spoiled rv face for life. " Personal I'araaraph * .

Another ot the robbers , Elmer Byrum , told he Mansfield officers today where they could flnd $ GOO In money and two watches which the robbers had hid and the booty was re covered. Kennedy was out on bond on the Schu- maker murder case. He was twice tried tor eadlng the Alton robbery at Blue Cut , near here , in 1896 , when $32,000 was secured. The first jury disagreed and the second re turned a verdict of acquittal. At the time stories ot perjured witnesses and bribed Juries were common.

Kennedy and Young Jame * are good friends. FIRE ON JAPANESE CRUISER Crew Debnve * with Great Bravery and Finally Bring * the Ship / Into Port. SEATTLE , Jan. 10.

Yale has appeared , and although she has repeated her lecture several times , an additional In crease of interest has intensified the demand. As a result of this condition It has been found necessary to regulate the free distribution of tickets for Mme. Yale's lecturea by the following system : Tickets for Mma. Yale's Lecture HOW AND WHERE TO GET THEM. As Boyd's Opera House holds about two thousand people only , , and as at least ten thousand ladles will apply for tickets to at tend Mme. Yale's lecture , it will be neces sary to turn thousands away , as usual , bu t so as to give the purchasers of the Yale remedies the preference , one ticket will b e given with the purchase ot any of Mme. Yale's dollar preparations , or Us equlvalen t In any of Mme , Yale's Remedies. Pur- cbaso must be made at the Yale departmet , with the drug department In the Boston Store at the time when ticket Is applied for. This system will have a tendency to re tard rdorc curiosity seekers from attcndln g and occupying space that might bo utll- lt d to better advantage , and besides It wll 1 create a. feeling of mutuality between the audience and lecturer , and at tbe sanio time enable Mme. Yale to appear before an audience ot ladles who have manifested their Interest In her work In a practical sense. Besides , it is absolutely necessary to make this arrangement in order to handle the crowds who apply for tickets. Although Mme ; Yale's lectures are Invariably attended by tbe more intelligent classes , it Is an Ira poss\blHty \ to accommodate them all. SOUVENIRS.
