FIFTH AND SIXTH ARE MOST CONCERNED Popular Knmrillon la to Divide These Two Wirda by the I nlon Pacific Tracks Mna'r (Iff (osalp. Now that the fall election Is over mem bers of the rlty council are beginning to i talk about the chAnglug of ward boundary ' lines. It Is asserted that the Sixth ward line should be run on a straight line either up Twenty-third or Twenty-fourth street. It will be rememhered that at the time the present Sixth., waid wag laid out a jog was made for the benefit of V. B. Vansant, who was appointed a member of the council by A. R. Keriy, then mayor. It was the same with the Firth ward, when Ed Johnston was named.. Politicians- hold that the Sixth ward HnoB should be changed and that the Fifth ward mlgnt be reduced in size. The best suggestion seems to be to di vide the wards by the Union Pacific tracks. This, it Is stated, will avoid confusion and will obviate the necessity of persons liv ing In the eastern part of the Fifth ward from going to the lumber yards -in the cen ter of the tracks to register and vote. It is estimated that a large number of votes in the Fifth ward have been lost by both parties by having the voting precinct at the lumber yard.. By a change in the ward lines1 the precincts would bo altered and It Is asserted that voters would be better ac commodated than they are now. The same Is true of registration, as the voting and registration places are practically the same. As Is to be expected, the democratic ma jority . In tho council are looking for the best of It. , However, they represent to out siders .that they will be fair and that If the ward lines are changed that each party will be given representation. Outside of poli tics the Idea seems to be' to Shorte'n the walk of the voters to the registration booths and the polls. Little complaint is heard from the Third and Fourth wards. As for the Second ward it appears to be all right and the chances are that no change there will be made. Borne of the councllmeri favor cutting the Fifth ward and making a Seventh ward, but It Is hardly probable that this will be done unless there Is a change in the present charter, which provides for six wards. . . I ndersjronnd Wires. It was reported On the streets yesterday that an ordinance was soon to be intro duced in the city council providing for the placing of both telephone and electric light wires undergrpund. For the last few months the Nebraska Telephone company has been engaged in placing the wires 10 the business portion of the city in cables and thus re ducing the number of overhead wires to a great extent- It Is almost the same with the Electric Light company. Some weeks ago The Bee announced that contracts had been made by the Thomson-Houston com pany for the laying of conduits across M street. This work is to commence with the next few days. An ordinance will, so it was stated last night, not hurry mattera any, as there seems to be a desire on the part of the companies mentioned to place their wires under cover. Policemen's null.

Chief Ktter of ths fire department, at the suggestion of Mayor Koutsky, yesterday asked for the resignations of Captain I. J.

He wants five daya off.

MOVE AGAINST CIGAR TRUST .Tinaa .nrriing liriu at WHICH CltlsetlS Exploit Independent Toliarro Healers' Interests. At a meeting of the retail cigar dealers and Jobbers at Washington hall last night io wnicn me ptiDiic was invited, many speeches were made in opposition to the cigar trust and reasons advanced for the organization of the retailers to fight the trust. Secretary Butler announced that out of 133 dealers sixty-five had Joined the local organization. He opposed the idea of the hustling committee appointed at a former meeting and in Its place recom mended that every member secure one new member before the next meeting. I. J. Dunn was the principal speaker of the evening. It was not the purpose of the. local organization, he said, to fight any ono, but to protect the retail dealers. Graham Davis, representing a New York firm, followed with a strong talk against the trust and what the retailers were doing in Chicago and New York to fight it. The trusts were making the greatest fight on tobacco and the tobacco dealers had a harder struggle before them than the cigar dealers, he said. There were 2,210 mem bers of the local organization In Chicago, he said, and the membership was growing every day. In New York, be said. 1,000 dealers attended the first meeting. He urged dealers to push the goods of the in dependent manufacturers. A representative of the McCord-Brady company aald he was not speaking for the firm, but that It likely would be in tho band wagon with the Independent dealers. C. E. Williams said he was selling more Independent tobacco than the trust made, because he was shoving the former.

As was confidently expected by the rlty council. Mayor Moorea returned to that body last evening bis veto of the contrsct and bond of the city with Charles W. Part ridge, for the construction of the Capitol avenue market house; and as had been threatened, the council promptly overruled the veto by an affirmative vote of seven, Mr. Whltehorn being excused from voting and Mr. Mount, the only member who would have voted to sustain the veto, being absent. The veto message was as follows: I return herewith without my spproval document No. 2S72. passed by your honor able body at your last regular meeting, No vember 4. 1902. This document Is a contract and bond between Charles W. Partridge ard the city of Omaha tor the erection and completion of a market house In Capitol avenue. I veto this contract and bond of Charles W. Partridge for the following rea sons: First That the proceedings required to be taken to protect the city against claims and suits for damages by reasin of the appro priation anil using of the portion of Cap itol avenue proposed to be used have not been taken. Second That the constrjctlon of the pro posed market house on Capitol avenue will not meet the needs and requirements of the city of Omaha and Is a mere tempo rary makeshift. In the first place, the loca tion Is not a suitable one for patronage by the public generally. In the second place the size and character of the proposed structure Is utterly Insufficient for a city like Omaha. Ihlrd 1 also veto and refuse to approve said contract or bond for the reason that the proposed expenditure of $11,98" of the money belonging to the general fund is not only Illegal, but utterly unjustifiable. In view of the present condition of the gen ersl fund and existing outstanding liabil ities which should be paid In place of di verting said fund as proposed to a market hojse. The diversion of this amount of money for this purpose will certainly leave an overlap at tne end or tne present nscai year, and there will then be liabilities cre ated bv the mavor and council Which of necessity must remain unpaid. The direct result of thus diverting this money, In view of these outstanding existing obligations, is to create a liability against every official who votes for or aDDroves this contract. For one. I do not prooose to make my bond liable for this unauthorised and excessive expenditure. The resolution of the council author izing the Board of Public Works to execut- the contract with Mr. Partridge was also returned with the mayor s veto and was enacted notwithstanding the veto, by an affirmative vote of 8, Mr. Whltehorn vot ing with the majority on this proposition. Asphalt Company Wants Bonds. A proposal was received from the Barber Asphalt company to exchange the city war rants to be Issued to it In payment for the pavement of districts 767, 769, 803 and 804 for the city bonds to be Issued to pay those warrants, the bonds to be taken by them at par. This communication was referred to the committee on finance and claims. The city clerk reported that W. J. Hunter and Victor Rosewater had duly qualified as members of the Board of Review. A petition from Rocco Brothers and about fifty other business men of the Third ward, asklog that the old street car tracks on Eleventh street from Tweffth snd How ard streets to Eleventh and Jackson streets be torn up for the reason that they were of no usa and were a detriment to the street, was referred to the.' tlty ' engineer to be reported upon at the next meeting. A resolution was adopted instructing the city engineer to proceed with the plan of assesaraent for the opening of Central boulevard from Hanscom park to Burt street In accordance with the previous in structions of the council. By resolution provision was made for refunding the various sums of money paid by market gardeners for market stalls or spsce on Capitol avenue for the present year and the comptroller was instructed to include these amounts in the next ap propriation ordinance to come out of the general market fund. The claims amount in all to about $500.

Nov. 11. The Planters' aoctety Is being severely attacked by' the radical press, mhlcb claims that the movement to organize branches of the society Is being carried on In the interests of annexation. The radical element in the house of rep resentatives Is urging the .formation of a f Poor Improves. Ways Dr. Hawerth. In his lecture last night st the First Congregational church on "Wallh snd Want" Dr. Ira W. Howerth, referring to the common theory of the enormous in crease in wealth during the last century without corresponding increase In the gen eral well being of the people, said: All such statements embody two proposi tions. First, that our wealth producing power has been enormously Increased, and, second, that wealth Is Inequitably and un justly distributed. The first of these propositions will not be denied. Our increase In wealth per decade since 1RS0 hss been ss the following figures, representing billions of dollars: Seven, six teen, twenty-six, forty-three, sixty-five, ninety-four. Our productive capacity has enlarged through Improved organization and the Introduction of machinery. Mn chlne powet has multiplied the produc tiveness of our industries sometimes a hundred fold. As to the second proposition, namely, that poverty has both absolutely and rela tively Increased, there Is much dispute. Many writers on sorlal questions deny thut the rich are growing richer and the poor poorer. " It may still be claimed that the Increase In wealth due to Improved organization and machinery Is not equitably shared, that the condition of the working class has not Improved as rapidly ss their contributions to Increased production would warrant. The results of Industrial progress are hnr vested chiefly by those who control ma chinery. The next lecture of the course of twelve op modern social problems will be given by Miss Jsne Addams of Hull House on "Social Results of Charitable Effort."

GOING BY THE GAS ROUTE fieoraje O'Dell Stopped on Jonrney Aeroaa the Rlrer by Physl elan's Work. Between 1 and 2 yesterday morning, at the Midland hotel, George O'Dell, who reg istered from "Nebraska," was stopped on a journey across the river . by the gas route by Dr. Arnold, assistant city physician. O'Dell went to the hotel Monday and en gaged a room. He retired about t o'clock that night, after first .turning off the gas and then turning it on", lie was discovered shortly after 1 o'clock by ths night clerk. who was making his rounds. . The clerk J smelted the gas, opened the door to O'Dell's room and found the jet turned partially on, O'Dell was lying in bis bed unconsolous and apparently lifeless. Dr. Arnold was called and after several hours' work pronounced the man nut of danger. O'Dell denied that he had attempted to take his own lite and said be supposed he had turned off the gas and then accidentally turned it on again. In Omaha Public The announcement that by almost a unan imous vote the 4,500 members of the Chi cago Teachers' federation have decided to apply for membership In the Chicago Fed eration of Labor was received with inter est among tne Omaha teachers and has been the subject ot much discussion. Some time ago there was considerable ag itation among some ot the teachers for tho establishment of a teachers' federation in Omaha, but the matter was dropped. The action ot the Chicago teachers . seems to have stimulated a fresh interest in such an organization and set on foot an agitation that may result In something. This plan of the Chicago teachers of securing an al liance with the union men, most of whom have children In the city schools, as a means of bringing about desired conditions, especially appeals to the Omaha women, particularly at present, owing to the strong feeling among teachers and patrons alike regarding the recent consolidstion in soma of the schools that has put three classes into some rooms and ons large and oue small class In others. Local teachers agree with the Chicago teachers thst forty-eight pupils In one room should be the limit. In speaking of a federation of the teach ers, one ot them ssld: "Why should we not have a federation? Why should women not organize in their own Interest as well as men? A teachers' federstlon would not necessarily mean that we join a labor union or go into politics, but we all appreciate that there Is strength In union that would be desirable In anything we might under take.

BERLIN, Nov. 11. The home secretary presided tonight at an official banquet In honor of Andrew D. White, former am bassador from the United States. Among the two hundred guests present were three members of the cabinet and a number of distinguished men in all walks of life. Among the Americans present were John Babcock, jr., W. J. Clark. T. W. Crldler, C. W. Kohlsaat, F. I. Pprague, Consul Gen eral Mason and American consuls from all parts of Germany. Count Von Poeadowsky Wehncr in proposing the healths of Em peror 'William and President Roosevelt, spoke of the emperor's great admiration of the development of the United States, he commended the vigor with which President Roosevelt had conducted the affairs of the nation after being called suddenly to their administration and praised Mr. White's un usually meritorious services to his country abroad. Professor Harnack, In proposing Mr. White's health, said: "Representatives of every variety of Ger man public life are here but we are only a small portion of those throughout Ger many who feel reverence for you. We beg you to widen these walls to the boundaries of the empire." While Mr. White spoke in reply, Professor Mommsen loft his seat and stood at his side, listening to every word and nodding his head in approval. Professor Mommsen presented an extraor dinary figure, with his long white hair fall ing over an old-fashioned, broad linen col lar and his bosom covered with decorations from all countries. fiermany America's Friend. Mr. White said that during the life and death struggle of the American union Ger many was the one nation which took the side of the union. "Therefore," he said, when some of my fellow citizens endeavored to reproach Ger many with an antl-Amerlcan feeling in the more recent military struggle in which my country was engaged I re minded them that this more recent es trangement was Infinitely outweighed by the fact that In the struggle for our very existence It stood by us through evil and good report." While the United States on a superficial view appeared, he continued, to be the most materialistic of nations, the people of America were among those most power fully swayed by beliefs and Ideals of senti ment. In no country could the ac tion of these two forces, apparently so antagonistic be seen more vigorously acting and reacting upon each other. He traced the Influence of Ideals in political strug gles In the United States and said he knew no other country where money was less worshiped as money. Referring to America's love for peace he said: "The case which has Just been arbitrated between the United States and Mexico shows sbundantly that the United States, had It been anxious to fight or de sirous of plunder, might easily have made the question ot the Plus fund Into a causus belli, but instead the matter was quietly referred to The Hague tribunal and there It waa quietly settled." Referring again to the Indebtedness of the United States to Germany, Mr. White said It was a curious fact that while down to the middle of the laat century the ideals controlling American institutions of learn ing had been derived almost entirely from Great Britain, during the entire latter half the Ideas and methods which gave substance to American instruction In every ization, and why should the teachers not unite their efforts In a similar manner?" Mrs. Orletta Chittenden, supervisor of the city kindergartens, addressed the gen eral meeting of principals and teachers of the South Omaha schools on Saturday morn ing on the practical and theoretical side of kindergarten work as It pertslns to public school work. Later she talked to tho teachers ot the first, second and third grades on a general program and the ma terials that could be used In connection with their primary work. There is at pres ent much interest and enthusiasm in South Omaha regarding kindergarten work aud there is considerable agitation for Its in troduction Into at least three ot the schools. Miss Nellie Mageo, city missionary, has applied to Superintendent Pearse for an In structor for the children In the district ot Tenth Street City mission who are out of school, either because they have been ex pelled or for some other resson are pre vented from regular attendance. Last year Miss Magee Instructed these children her self, but this year she asks tbo Board ot Education to supply this Instruction which, with the ssslstsnce of the truant officer, she thinks can be made much more effect Ive. Immediate Investigation of the situa tion has been promised. Mr. Pearse Is in sympathy with the plan for special schools for these children where they may be In charge ot teachers especially fitted by na ture aud experience to deal with them. He thinks by such an arrangement the great majority ot well disposed children would 51 Yn) Cvf As a cleaner, soap doesn't begin to compare with (BdDLUj) USdUBFa GOLD DUST does more work, better work and does it cheaper.

ATTEMPTS TO KILL HIMSELF Union Pacific Strike Breaker I'oonda His Head Agrnlnat the Pavement. James Dolan, a Union Pacific machinist, crazed from liquor and the effect" of sev eral bad cuts on his bead, was prevented from killing himself about 10 yesterday morning by Sergeant Gibbons, who arrested him. Dolan was near Tenth and Dodge streets, lying In the street striking his head with much force on the pavement. As fast as he would regain his feet he would again throw himself against the pavement. He received several ruts on the head and his injuries are serious. At the station he was unable to give a rational statement ot how he came to be in such a condition other than to say he had been struck by a man while at work In the Union Faciflo shops. His wounds were dressed by Police Surgeon Hahn and he waa locked up. Do lan is from Providence, R. I., and has been employed at the shops for some time. Dtepped Acalnat Hot Stove. A child of Mrs. George T. Benson, when getting his usual Saturday night bath, step ped back against, a hot stove, which burned him severely. The child waa In great agony and I) Is mother could do nothing to pacify him. Remembering that she had a bottle of Chamberlain's Pain Balm in the house, she thought she would try it. In less than half an hour after applying It the child was quiet and asleep and in less than two weeks was well. Mrs. Benson is a well known resident of Kellar, Va. Pain Balm Is an antiseptic liniment and especially valuable for burns, cuts, bruises and sprains. Schools be free from the annoyance, loss ot time and the contamination they now suffer, whllo thcBe special esses more carefully looked after by teachers qualified to man age them would receive much more benefit than they now get from the schools and might gradually conform or return to the normal type from which they are now at variance. The Omaha Teachers' Annuity and Aid association Issued today 1,000 Invitations for a reception to be held from 9:30 to 11 o'clock on Tuesday evening, November 18, In the Woman's club rooms In the First Congregational church in honor ot Miss Jane Addams of Hull House, Chlcsgo.

Edmund H. Hlnsbaw ot Falrbury. congressman-elect in the Fourth Nebraska district, spent the day In Omaha yesterday, passing through the city. Mr. Htnshaw de voted his time to visiting friends and re ceiving congratulations upon the successful race made by hlm for congress. "If there were not such a large number of stay-at-homes In my district my majority might have been reduced, but I am sure 1 would have been elected nevertheless by a handsome vote. I believe most ot the stay-at-homes would have voted the re publican ticket, as satisfaction with exist ing prosperous conditions is In the air. I found during my campaigning that then never wss a more popular figure before the public than President Roosevelt, Every mention of his nsme or reference to his work brought out vigorous and spontaneous applause. I made it a point to devote part of my time In each speech to telling abou the president and his policies, and from the way it was received I know that I couM not have said anything that would bav? struck the audience so favorably. It Is a long time yet before I will be called upon to participate In legislation unless the next congress should be convened earlier than its regular session, but I hope to begin making myself useful to iny constituents at once."
