When It first became known that Iho Illi
nois Ccnlral was extending Its line Into
Omaha persistent rumors arose thnt It en
try would witness a cessation of the close
trBfflc'arranBcmcnta between the Northwest
ern nnd the Union 1'aclflc. Shortly before
the arrival of the now road the through
transcontinental 'train ecrvlco was estab
lished from Chicago to San Francisco over
thn Northwestern and the Union 1'nclllc un
dcr such conditions as to warrant belief In
Its permanence , and rumors thnt the Illinois
Central would step Into Ihe Northwestcrn's
SHOPS In its relations to the Union I'aclflc
subsided. Speculation has ngaln been
aroused In local railroad circles by the re
port that the Illinois Central will have the
haul east of the MlEnourl river In Ihe new
Chicago-Portland iraln lo he Inauguralcd by
the Union Pacific , Oregon Snort Line ana

Reportw floated in from the west last week
that one "reason for the participation In the
Salt Lake confersnce of the Northwestern
line was to press Its claims for the through
Portland-Chicago train over Its road between
Omaha nnd Chicago. That it was consid
ered necessary on the part of the Northwestern -
western olllclals to use any persuasion In
thi ; matter Is taken to uphold Ihe belief of
several Omaha railroad men lhal a proposi
tion Is under advisement whereby Ihc 1111-
tiole Ccnlral may bo allied with the Union
Pacific and Its western connections In the
new train service to be established April 1.
M. C. Markhnm , assistant tralllc manager
of the Illinois Central , was Interviewed In
Denver last week relative to the gossip of
th dissolution of Iho existing arrangements
tctween the Northwestern and Union Pacific
and the forming of a combination between
the Illinois Central and the Union Pacific.
He professed absolute Ignorance of any such
proposition being on foot. Nothing was
mentioned , however , relative to the proposed
Portland-Chicago service.
Train * Arrive tin Time.
The snowstorm Tuesday night did not
interfere to any appreciable extent with the
oporallou of passenger trains. With one 01
two exccptlonrt the morning trains yesterday
from both east and west came in nearly on
time , the record of all Ihe roads being one
that would bo pleasing to the operating ofll-
dais oven on a fair weather day. The Mil
waukee was about two hours late. Oeorge
B. Haynes , city passenger agent , atlrlbulet
the occasional delays of the trains on hU
road to the substitution at Perry , la. , ol
lighter engines than Iho big ones which pull
1ho trains from Chicago to Perry. This I ;
necessary because the bridges west of Perrj
nrc not heavy enough to warrant the speei
nnd weight of the heavier engines. Tin
present bridges will bo replaced In the ncai
future with steel structures nnd then thi
( Milwaukee' never expect their trains
to be late , ns the big engines will bo rur
through to Omaha from Chicago.

What promised to bo a raltllng good pugi
listic exhibition between Marlon Mclntyrc
of Omaha and Tom Carrel of San Kranclscc
was terminated abruptly nt the end of the
fourth round by Carrol's refusal to longci
continue Iho match. The bout was scheduled
as the main event of n boxing exhibition
given nt Washington hall Wednesday night ,
H was witnessed by about 125 sporting men
of Omaha and South Omaha. Carrel as
serted that the time lltnltj of the round had
been cut short when ho was getting the
uppcrhand of his opponent and dcniandcd
that his gloves bo removed.
The preliminary exhibitions were tedlouf
nnd long drawn out. The crowd became Im
patient and was not In the best of humor ,
but the first round of the Mclutyrc-Carrol
bout nrotiBcd plenty of enthusiasm nnd until
the end of the mill Interest continued at the
top notch. The first preliminary was a gc
between local colored llghtwelghts"Dangpr'
Talbot , Jr. , n brother of the hall player bj
the same name , nnd "Kid" Johnson. The
lads put plenty of ginger Into their exhibi
tion and Ihe crowd wn > fairly well pleased
At the end of the fifth round the matcli
was called nnd Talbol awarded the decision
The next two bouts were entirely too tame
to suit the spectators and their concluslor
brought a. general sigh of relief. Both were
four-round matches , the contestants bolnf
Jack Gorman and Jack Thornton , and Blllj
Barrett of Omaha nnd Jack Macnhm of Chi
No sooner did the first round of the Me-
Intyro-Carrol mill got well started than tin
spectators realized that they were' to gel
their money's worth. The two prize fighters
mixed things up In lively fashion. Thej
went so fast , Indeed , that those near thi
ringside appreciated the wisdom of tin
agreement , lhat the fight should last bui
six , Instead of twenty-five rounds , as wai
originally Intended , for neither man was It
even fair condition , nnd the labored breathIng -
Ing of both Indicated plainly that a six-roum
go would give each as much fighting as hi
had bargained for.
Mclntyre handled himself cleverly , was
light on his 'feet and reeled off a few short-
arm jolts and left-handed swings that rathei
slaggered Iho San Francisco dlsclpulus o
fisttann. In the third round the Omaha lat
had his opponent going. He had landed i
right-hand blow in Carrol's wind , followct
by a left-hand swing on the jaw and an
other punch would probably have laid Carrel
rol on the shelf , but the referee called tlmi
and Ihe fun was lemporarlly at an end.
In the fourth round both men were rapid
Carrel came up in good condition am
seemed to reverse the order of things ex
Isttng at the end of the third. He was 01
the offensive from the start and had thi
round his own way when the tlnie-keepe
shouted time. The crowd was In a hlg !
pitch of excitement , owing to the raplult ;
with which the mill was progressing am
someone started a cry that the time wai
eut short. Immediately a howl went up
punctuated hy hisses and cat-calls. Carro
took advantage of the disorder and rcfusei
to fight longer , asserting that the time ha <
been cut short because he was gelling Ihi
hotter of Mclntyre , His aptipn was op
plaudcd and he disappeared Into his dress
ing room. Within a few moments the hal
wns emptied and the first renl game prlzi
fight given In Omaha for some time cnde <
In a most unsallafactory manner.

wife , Mrs. Soloman , Mns. Nahll George ,
Jobra Shaboe , George Smith , Joseph Body
and Mrs. Shahoo. Ferris says these people
send their children to lorment him and hU
"They come and drag tin cans full or
gravel over the sidewalk In front of inv
house nnd yell and throw stones at mo. They
hope I'll get mad' ' and go out and slap one
of them so they'll have a case against rae.
One tlrno three women throw my wife down
and sat on her while another pulled her hair
out. "
The truth of this last statement was prac
tically vouched for by the woman's placing
govern 1 handfuls of jet black hair , long ,
j straight and coarse , on Hie- desk of the city
attorney as sbo swore to her complaint.
Upon her scalp were bald places whence the
nalr came.
The case was continued until April II.

Sergeant Ambrose King of Iho Twcn ; > -
sooonil I'nltcd States Infantry spent yester
day in the city on his way to Michigan. He
Irfi Fort Crook with his regiment on Janu
ary 26 , i8 ! ! t , nnd now carries a discharge
dated nt San Francisco , February 5. His
character Is given as excellent In Iho dis
charge , and In addition lo this he has a let
ter frosi Chaplain K , H. Fitzgerald which
s-ri > fl that ho served with distinction In Ihc
Cuban and Philippine wars. Sergeant King
participated In fifteen Important engage
ments nnd Is considered ono of the best non-
commlssloncr offlcois In Iho regiment. In
speaking about his return trip Sergeant King
said ho loft Manila on January 10 on board
the United States transport Meado. On board
were 13o prisoners destined to the military
prisons In ihis country. Al Nagasaki , Japan ,
eighteen of the prisoners escaped through n
hole inado by members of the crew of the
ship. Th0 guard on board was not blamed
for the escape , as It afterwards transpired
that the crew alone was at fault. Two pris
oners died on the way over and were burled
at sea.
When asked about the conditions In and
about Manila , Sergeant King said that on
the north line the natives wore peaceable
and wcro returning to their pursuits. Many
were starting In life again after having lost
everything In the early stages of Iho war.
On the southern line It Is only a mailer ol
a few days , said Mr. King , before Iho same
seltlod conditions will prevail.
Sergeant King said that ono ot the grand-
ml sights ho over witnessed was on Decem
ber 30 , In Manila , when the remains of Gen
eral Lawton were escorted to the transport ,
Over 8,000 troops were In line nnd the parade -
rado was a momornblo one. I2very eoliilei
nt the front mourned Lawton , who was con
sidered the best of leaders and regarded bj
the soldiers as ono of the few great gencrah
of the army.
Aa nn Indication of the loyalty of the Japanese -
aneso for the Americans , Sergeant Klnj
stated that the transport Meade took flu
Inland COUIKQ north from Nagasaki and thi
ship was guided through Iho narrow channo
by a Japanese pilot who refused the custo
mary fee for the reason that the ship car
ried the American flag. Ho said the Japan
ese generally regarded the Americans ai
tholr friends and did everything in theli
power to make the stay of the tioldlors a
Nagasaki pleasant.

The Bohemians of Ihe cily are greallj
elated over the action of the Board o
Education In naming the new nchool liotisi
on Twentieth street after Joseph Jungmann
the great historian of Bohemia. In certaii
circles there Is a complaint about this , am
It Is asserted that a request will be made o
the 'board to change the name of the schoo
for sonio American. AH the Second ward 1 :
populated principally by Bohemians am
those of Bohemian descent , It I declaret
that the name selected Is fitting and shouU
stand. Every 'member ' of the board presen1
at the meeting Monday night voted for tin
adoplion of the name , and It Is hardly prob'
able that the resolution naming the schoo
will be rescinded. Already the Bohemian :
of the ward are making preparations for r
proper observance of the dedication of th <
school. A parade Including all of the Bo
hemian socle-ties of Ihe clly will form :
feature of the Ceremony.

Republicans realize the fact that goo <
men are needed for the Board o.f Education
and with this Idea in view a canvass o !
the well known and prominent republican ;
Is oelng made. As three members of the
board arc to be elected this spring , these
names are suggested : Howard Mayers , R
C : Young and E. T. Miller. It Is assertet' '
that these men will (111 the places to tin
entire satisfaction of the party. The need
of ( business men In the board Is apparenl
from the financial condition of the- school
district. Even with the election of three
republican members this spring the demo
crats will still have control , but It Is thought
that the presence of republican * on the
board will have a tendency to curlail Ihe
exlravagence of Iho democrals and pave the
way toward the election of three more re
publicans In thci spring of 11101.
ConipIiiliitN oil Police Ji'orcc.
There Is considerable lalk about the police
department lately. Most of the complaints
are caused by the pairing of the police In
the fouslness portion of the city. On the
down town streets two policemen are al
ways together , and In some Instances three
"coppers" are found In line walking along.
This system Is supposed to result from the
fact that there is no chief of police. Captain
Hanley handles the men to suit himself on
the day side , while Captain Allle posts hlfi
men at night according to his liking. The
result appears to bo the utmost confusion
and a lack of discipline all through. Mayor
Ensor Is being urged to appoint a ohlef ol
police In order to straighten out the force
and compel patrolmen to walk beats alone ,
Instead of going about in pairs , us is now
the custom. %
Storm ToDlcN.
Wednesday's storm caused considerable
Inconvenience , 'but ' no damage to speak ol
was donp. All stock trains were a little late
In arriving , but plenty of help was nt hand
to see to the unloading as soon as the care
wcro run up to the chutcw. Quito n force
was employed In keeping the puzzle switches
In the yards clear of snow so as not to ob
struct the rapid switching of cans. Strcol
car truffle was Impeded to some extent and
motors were run without trailers. The
travel was heavy and the company's re
sources were taxed to the limit. Those wlic
were compelled to walk from Twcnty-fourtl
street to the yards complained bitterly , ani
concurred In the Htatement that the terminus
of the line should bo nearer the center ol
business , Instead of where It Is.

The Board of Education will make a
thorough invesllgatlon of the claims of the
West Side , A'mbler and Kckermann school
patrons , who consider Ihe recent lopping off
of those districts an unwarranted hardship.
A special committee has been appointed ,
consisting of Members Black , Smith and
Johnson , who intend to visit the districts
affected and Inform themselves thoroughly
of the situation. They will Inquire regard
ing the method of Iransportallon In wagons
favored by Superintendent Penrsp nnd make
an estimate of the alleged economy of the
new Byfitem.
The West Side Improvement flub , together
with the residents of the other districts , do
not propose to subtnll to the now nr > . . P-
menl without a vigorous and contlninre
monstrance. A committee has boo | > -
polnted to urge the reopening of the HC\ \ IH.
as follows : Edgar Walsh , 0. T. Mount.n
Wlslcr , S. E. Howell , John Long. ' ( ! PI-
Duel , Frank Wagner , John Mallkle and \Vli-
llnm Stark.
In reference to the matter one of the
committee wild : "The board tried ihp
same plan ono year ago , but was unable to
carry It out in the face ot public opinion
and the Rcntlmont this year is much more
pronounced. Wo will show thp hchool
board that there Is no economy In the method
and that it Is an Injustice to the taxpayers.
At Ecltennann school , for Instance , the board
paid $25 per month lo the janitor who was
discharged and now pnyu $28 per month for a
wagon to carry the children back and forth. "
