Archbishop Keane Is spending a few days In the city as the guest of the bishop of Omaha, this being hla first visit to this dio cese since he became archbishop of this province. To a reporter he said: "My visit has nothing of an official na ture in It. Bishop Scannell had Invited me to visit him, and finding a few days In which I could take a little vacation I de cided to spend it In this city. I have been here once before, when I waa rector of the Catholic university, and waa very favorably Impressed with the city. At that time I believed that It wpuld only' be a question of time when Omaha would be the seat of an archepiscopal see, and I am of the aamo opinion still. Aa Dubuque is the aeat of a province west of the Mississippi river in a growing, progressive country, I expect to see the day when Omaha will be a similar aeat west of the Missouri river. You may be assured that, far from being Jealous of the advancement of this city, I will do all I can to bring It about, and I hope to see It accomplished In a short time." . Discussing ' affairs ' of the province, he said: "We have divided the see of Du buque by creating the see of Sioux City, rod It la only a question of time when there will be four dioceses in Iowa, the seat of the one to bo created being at Des Molnea. When this will be dono we cannot say. The bishop of Sioux City will bo In Omaha to day, und we will spend the time visiting and meeting some of the clergy and laity of the diocese. We are very well pleased to know that there la no occasion for the solution of any problems at thla time, and that everything Is moving smoothly and well." To Entertain the Arehblahop. Uast evening Bishop Scannell gave a dinner In honor of the archbishop, to which ' were Invited a number of the clergy of the diocese. Wednesday evening there will be given a banquet In his honor at the Omaha club, at which will be about fifty of the prominent citizens of Omaha.

The re ceipts during the month were 1235.177.87, while the disbursements were $315,874.10. Arfrne I nlon Pacific Cane. The suit of the state against the Union Pacific Railroad company. Involving some I625.0C0 nf penalties alleged by the state to be due under the maximum rate law for alleged overcharges, was argued today In the supreme court and aubmltted on a motion for judgment on the report of the referees. This suit was Instituted, with other of a similar character, against other roads, by C. J. Smyth while he was attor ney general. When the case was submit ted to referees by the supreme court they found against the state on the ground that the law providing penaltlea waa annulled by the supreme court decision declaring unconstitutional the law creating the State Board of Transportation. Attorney Gen eral Prout haa filed objections to the find ings of the referees, and it was upon these objections that the argument was based to day. This is the case In which the Union Pacific is reported to have expended $40,000 for testimony provided by an expert ex amination of Its books. Howell Case Ip In Conrt. Considerable Interest was manifested among attorneys In the argument in the supreme court today of the case of Gro andln against the First National bank of Chicago, Involving the former Omaha pos sessions of the S. R. Howell Lumber com pany of Chicago, which failed In 1891. The evidence shows that in 1874 Spooner R. Howell, then a young man, borrowed $5,000 at hla old borne In Batavla, 111., and went to Chicago to embark in the lumber busi ness. He seems to have gained the confi dence of Lyman J. Gage of the First Na tional bank of Chicago, who backed htm In his business, and the lumber business established by Howell prospered until It had yards In many western cities and did an Immense business. In 1891 experts as certained that the company waa on the verge of bankruptcy and immediately there after made an assignment to the Chicago bank, which Included the property of the company In Omaha. The suit argued to day Is brought by Nebraska creditors of the company attacking the assignment of the Omaha property on the claim that the Chicago bank has already collected under the assignment some $240,000 more than the company owed it when it failed. The Omaha property Involved Is said to be worth about $50,000. Senator Allison was one of the attorneys appearing in behalf of Mr. Gage's bank. . Think They Are Robbers.- . Detective Malone and Chief Hoagland are very sanguine that In the three men ar reatel last evening they have three of the four men who robbed the Burlington train here some weeks ago. The men answer the description of the robbers as given by the train crew, but whether the police will be able to fix the crime upon them Is another matter. That they are professionals seems evident. They shut up like clama the minute they were taken into custody. They not only declined to give their names, but refused to give any Information as to their recent movements. One claims to be a detective, but be will not say anything further than that he bas a good thing of it and Is hot on In Omaha Public In view of the tntereat that la being manifested among teachers and patrons alike in the Ward system of reading, now being taught in the city schools. Miss Clara Cooper, pribclpal of Forest school, haa prepared the following article for the benefit of the many wishing to know more of It. Miss Cooper haa supervision of the Instruction and gives every Thursday to visiting the first, second and third grades of the various schools. She Is also at the city hall on Wednesday evenings for the benefit of those teacher wishing special help: Some four yeara ago there waa brought to the notice of our school authorities a new set of readers, four In number. Ac companying the books were three sets of drill cards and a manual of Instruction fir the teaching of the "Rational Method In Reading." Thla method waa given to the public by B. O. Ward, an assistant superintendent In the Urookiyn, N. Y., schools. It Is usu ally spoken of bj our teachera as "Ward." Aa Mr. Ward ststes In his manual, his method Is 'a peculiar combination of the word and the phonetic methods." It alma to make the child independent and self reliant in reading and to put him in pos Keasloii. during the first year and half of his graded school life, of a complete key to our language. During the first term s work the child Is taught some eighty words by sight. These are used in sentences written on the black board by the teacher, and they comprise the full vccibulary of Part I of th-? primer. Also during ihta term, and at a period quite distinct from the sight-reading les son, the pupils are taught In the order given the sounds represented by the fol lowing Inters and combinations of letters: f, 1, m, n, r s, a, e, o-ing. ings, lght, ignis. These sounds represent the initial stock of phonograms employed In the first phonetic reading. The phonograms are printed in heavy, large type on mani'.la carda, print on one side, srrlpt on the reverse. To tell how these cards are used In the dally drill would occupy too much apace. Drop into your neighborhood school some morning and aee lor yourself. The iatchstrlngs of the public schools hang always out and are too seldom pulled. In time the children come to see that words are formed by combinations of sounds, and there daily drill are given In uniting sounds to form words. This unlor. of sounds Is called blending. After some ten weeks of sight reading from the blackboard the primers sre taken and the transition from the script of the teacher to the print of the book Is very easily made. In t art II of the primer be lt, is the use of phonetic reading, and the three readers that follow tbts book contain many phonetic words with their diacritical markings. A book and a aet of phonograms are pro vided fur each of the first three terms. At th scent of case In which a big reward awaits him. He gives the name of Standlsh snd ssys he Is a British soldier. He admits having been In this city for several months and divided his time between here and Omaha. Rowley After n Tardnn. Martin 8. Rowley. ant to the penitentiary from Douglas rounty for forgery, wants a pardon and his friends are making every effort to secure It before Governor Savsge leaves the executive mansion. In addition to many letters that have been sent to Lin coln In his behalf, a delegation of Rowley's friends from South Omaha railed on the governor. Monday Sheriff John Power from Omaha called on the governor, after a talk i with Rowley, and spoke a good word In his behalf. As the time draws near for Governor Sav age to vacate the s.tatehous the applica tions for pardons are Increasing. Tuesday seventeen applications were received and the governor's office was crowded until late in the afternoon by friends of inmates of the penitentiary. Rnya Sew Grounds. The Epworth aasembly, composed of rep resentatives of the various Epworth leagues of the state, a Methodist organisation, haa about completed rtie purchase of a tract of land a few mites south of the city as a permanent home. The price Is understood to be $8,000, and a contract has already been made to extend the Traction company's lines to the new park. Oleo Law Ararned. Is It a crime to sell oleomargarine col ored to make it look like June butter? is the question raised by Beha Bros, of Lincoln in a criminal case argued before the supreme court this morning. The men were fined in Lancaster county and appealed to the su preme court. Teachers Are Poorly raid. GRAND ISLAND, Neb., Dec. 2. (Special.) The teachers of the various school dis tricts of the county outside of the city, at a meeting In which the matter of salaries paid for their services waa discussed, de cided to postpone action to a Joint meeting to be held In this city on' December 13 be tween the teachers and the boards of di rectors of the different districts. It Is alleged that the teachers in these districts are very aadly underpaid, comparing the necessary qualifications with those in other employments, and It waa suggested at the meeting thst thla was not only the case here, but all over the state, and that the agitation of the matter should be carried to every school district In the state. Enforcing: Compulsory Edncatlon. SCHUYLER. Neb. Dec. 2. (Special.) At the meeting of the school board last night Superintendent Sherman presented a list of names of fifty children of school ago not attending school aa required by the compulsory education law. In order that the law might be enforced and the chil dren have the benefits of school aa contem plated, E. H. Phelps, secretary of the school board, waa appointed truant officer to In vestigate the cases reported. It was voted that a representative of the board attend the State Teachers' meeting at Lincoln during the holidays, to be present at the sessions of the school board section, suffi cient funds being allowed to cover the ex. penses of the representative. Jndsre Haa No Jurisdiction. PLATTSMOUTH, Neb., Dee. J. (Special.) Judge Paul Jessen arrived from Nebraska City yesterday and in., the afternoon lis tened to the arguments In support of the application for a writ of habeas corpus to secure the release of Joseph A. Janda from the custody of Sheriff J. D. McBrtde. The attorneys In the case furnished a number of citations, but the onrt informed them that he bad read those and wanted some thing touching on the case, and as they could furnish nothing better, decided that' he had no juriadictlon In the case and the writ was denied. Janda was arrested sev eral weeks ago on the charge of being deserter from the United Statea navy. Revivals at Wrmore, WYMORE. Neb., Dec. . (Special.) Two revival meetings are In progress at pres ent, conducted by the Methodist and Con gregational chuches. The meetings at the First Congregational church have been In progress for over a week and Rev. W. F. Berger, the paator. Is attracting large audiences.

BEATRICE, Neb., Dec. 2. (Special.) Following is the mortgage report for Gage county for the month of November: Num ber of farm mortgages filed, 13; amount, $23,530; number of farm mortgages re leased, 24; amount, $30,535; number of city mortgages filed, 17; amount, $7,600; num ber of city mortgages released, 15; amount, $8,472. the end of this time practically all the sounds of our language have been taught. The fourth book Is read before the third year opens. The books are well graded and there la a good reiteration of sight and phonetic words that gives the little reader a thorough practice In the use of that which he haa been learning. A child ia expected to prepare hla sentence before he gives it aloud. It ia seldom hur ried and he has the privilege of asking for any word he doea not know. Thus he is able to use what he does know and Is helped to give what he has not yet the power to gain. If It be a phonetic word, or to remember if It be a sight word. It is a most merciful manner of reading to the slow or the nervous child. Three primary teachers were first aaked to try "Ward." They were willing to do so, and auch excellent results did they ob tain that at the close of the year others were asking the privilege of using the method. Material waa furnished them. At the end of the second year other teachers asked to try It. More material was fur nished, and the Interest grew. The third year still others were falling Into line and many who watched the work with dislike and a spirit of adverse criticism became converted, and most sealous converts they proved. There were but three or four schools not teaching reading by the rational method when it was adopttd by the Board of Education. Of the three pioneers In the work only one remains with us. Miss Margaret Reed Is connected with the schools of New York City and Miss Coolev Is resting in the west. CLARA F. COOPER. Thanks to the woman's auxiliary of the American Park and Out-of-Door Art as- aoclation, five Chicago school yards are to be made beautiful with trees, shrubbery and flowers, and an effort is being made to extend this work to all of the towns of Illinois. Already 300 trees, vines and shrubs have been planted and 5,000 aprlng flower bulbs are now being distributed, among the different schools. With the general observance of Arbor day In the Omaha schools and the interest of the teachers and rupils In beautifying the achool yarda, Omaha haa come, within the last two yeara, to have an enviable reputatlcn tor Its accomplishment In this line, and at a recent conference of civic Improvement workers, held in Chicago, Omaha's system waa referred to aa an ad mirable plan for the advancement of and stimulating general interest In the work of city Improvement.

I L VllavL Germany Not Disposed to Force Immediate Payment of Claim DEBT IS ABOUT TWO MILLION DOLLARS Bonds May Be tsaneri at a Moderately lllsh Rate of latereat Secured by Certain Cnstoma of the Country. BERLIN, Dee. 2. The published state ment that Germany's claims against Ven esuela amount to 1 15.000.000 la. the corre spondent of the Associated Press is offi cially Informed. Incorrect. While the German government Is not .yet ready to publish the details of Its de mands, persons who have aeen the papers say the total Is about $2,000,000. Preldent Castro represents to Oerrosnr that Venetuela has little credit abroad, that the country la just emerging from a c'.vll war during which planting and Industry were partially ruined, and, therefore, no matter how much Venetuela may desire to satisfy Immediately the claims sgalnst her. It is obviously Impossible. Hence an agree ment on the subject must provide for de ferred psyments. The selxure of the customs houses, thereby depriving the government of an Im portant means to administer the country, would add to the Internal distress and dis order. While President Csstro'a proposals are not disclosed there Is reason to believe that they include the Issue of bonds at a moderately high rate of Interest. lth some sort of a guarantee that It the Interest Is defaulted certain Venezuelan customs may be taken over by Germany. Nothing Is known here of the plans of Isaac N. Sellgman of New York, for floating a Venezuelan loan. He bas not approached this government In the matter. There la no disposition to proceed against Venezuela If mild methods will suffice to cauae action, but the German government Is fully committed to obtain ample satisfac tion. The claimants are constantly urging the government to preas the collection of the amounts due them, not only because of the sums Involved, but, it Is represented, In f view of the fact that the long delay has . rendered the position of Germsns In Ven . ,, . ,. K fo .,.lm.d tne government must strike and strike hard in order to properly protect Its Interests. WELCOME TO THE SUFFRAGISTS Twenty-Second Annnnl Meeting: of Ne braska Association Held at Tecnmseh.

S. MINISTER TO ENGLAND Commends Perntin to All Catarrh Sufferers Hon. Louis E. Johnson Is the son of th e late Reverdy JohDson. who was United States Senator from Maryland, also Attorne y General under President Johnson, and United Statea Minister to England, and w ho was regarded aa the greatest constitu tional lawyer that ever lived. In a recent letter from 1006 F afreet. X. W., Mr. Johnson says: "No one should longer suffer from catarrh when Peruna Is accessible. To my knowledge It has caused relief to so many of my friends and acquaintance, that It la humanity to commend Its use to all persons suffering with this dis tressing disorder of the human system." Louis E. Johnson. Catarrh Poisons. Catarrh is capable of changing all the life-giving secretions of the body Info scalding fluids, which destroy and Inflame every part they come In contact with. Applications to the places affected by catarrh can do little good save to soothe or quiet disagreeable symptoms. Hence It Is that gargles, sprays, atomizers and in halants only serve aa temporary relief. So long aa the irritating secretions of catarrh continue to be formed so long will the membranes continue to be Inflamed, no mat ter what treatment is used. There Is but one remedy that has the desirable effect, and that remedy Is Peruna. L01 . Mil1 , Christmas Present Offer.
