FINES RUN HIGH ON ADVERTISING MAN Governor Mickey EiperH to Take t" Ontkt Police Board Matters aa lot aa Strike U Orer. (From a Staff Correspondent ) LINCOLN. May 11. (Bpeclal.) The Re- publican state committee has been called i . h. i inj.n . . - tl . ' to meet at the Llndell hotel In Lincoln on Tuesday, May 28, 19(4, at 8 o'clock p. m , for the purpose of fixing the time and place of holding the next state convention, ap portioning delegates and transacting gen eral business. The state convention will nominate a candidate for supreme judge and two candidates for regents of tba state university. W'lnes Pile t'p. R. H. Cone, who represents an eastern coffee concern. In an attempt to show the people of Lincoln that his coffee was the best on the market has subjected himself to fines sggregatlng 190,000. To do all this Mr. Cons got up bright and earlM on sev eral mornings and plastered most of the poles around town with his advertisements. The City Improvement society swooped down on Mr. Cone and dragged hlrrt Into court, where the police judge informed him that by his own confession he was subject to fines In the amount stated. Inasmuch ss Mr. Cone agreed to hustle these signs down about as faat as he hustled them up and promised never to do It sgaln, he was given until Wednesday to do It: If It Isn't dons then Mr. Cone will either have to pay up or sleep It out If the society elects to fores the prosecution. Police Board Nest. The man who la to take the place of C. C. Wright, shortly to resign from member ship on the Omaha police board. Is 'not worrying the governor very much at this time. But as soon as the laor question is off his hands this will come up and the man will be named. Another question, that probably would have received aentlon at . . t,J- n ........ .... i. V, . . - , ... .- . members of the Omaha police ooard in using the members of. the police depart ment during the recent Omaha municipal election. . Before the strike the governor wss milch concerned in the matter and In a conversation he showed plainly that he was much Interested in the reports of ths actions of members of the board. It would not bs surprising to many If, after ths labor strike is settled, Governor Mickey takes a band In the Omaha police board affairs with a-view to making the police department what It was intended to be In stead of a political club. Wants Bill Itemised. Becausa hs failed to itemize his bill of 1300 for the execution of Gottlieb Nelgen find. Warden Beemer has been requested to do so by the Board of Public Lands and Buildings, and the bill Is held up in the meantime. The statement turned into ths t. ikrd by Mr. Beemer is for $300 and It is Itemised this way: . Scaffold-' :.. $50.00 ."Jxpenaes. George Stryker: Hotel v $ 3 00 Batuery 7. BO Rope , 10.00.

"" Statistics of Schools. Ths discussion of the erection of a new normal school and the efforts being made Vy various towns throughout the western portion of ths stats to secure Its location, recalls the fact that .Nebraska stands at the head of the states in educational mat ters In that it has ths lowest per cent of illiteracy. These excerpts from the report of the state superintendent may show a reason for this. Ths 'report shows that Nebraska had at ths end of the scholastic year, July 12. 1902, 1.813 schools. Of thess . 6,900 were frame; brick, 327; stons, 26; log, 121; sod, 436, and iron, 8. In 1901 there were 464 sod school houses In the state out of a total of 6.773. Many of these houses were well finished, nearly all floored and plas tered and many finished around ths doors nnd windows on the Inside. Ths iron school ithnuse Is In Johnson county, about five ,nlles from Tecumseh, and it Is said to be one of the best country school houses in ths stats. Male teachers last year were paid $636. S29 94 and the females drew in salary $2,207. 301.83, which is not considered so bad. There were employed 1,862 male teachers and 7.767 females. The pupils between 5 and 21 years or, sgs numbered 375,340. The money avail .! for school purposes was $6,320,227.56, I nnd of this sum there remains on hand VMM.S89.il. Plenty of Water for Irrigation. Secretary Dobson of the State Board of Irrigation has Just returned from a trip to ine irrigated portions of the state snd brings with him the report that the pros pect for irrigation this year is brighter than sver before. He reports that con slderabls new land has been placed In cul tivation and the crops In good condition. "The Irrigated country I passed through seemed to be In the bsst of condition." ssld Mr. Dobson this morning. "Ths flow In ths 'streams is even above the normal and the ditches are all carrying a good supply or water. In fact I think that In some leases too much water is allowed to flow through the ditches. I saw alfalfa fields that seemed to be. suffering from too much water In spots 'This difficulty will be overcome when the- measuring boxes provided for In a re cent law are Installed In the ditches, since this will enable the under secretaries in the f.eld to determine just how much water each person Is entitled to. 'There will be a good many applications for permits for irrigation, works this yeir," continued Mr. Dobson. "Most of them, however, will be for the construction ol embankments across dry runs and canyons in order to store flood water. Ths normal flow of the streams has been fully appro priated as a general rule and this ten- Stiffened koui tban n a tetafcl ana VaV .' JP ! I " 't! "V of ram, and -.- "t HOSHCuhi f noosnlaoa jewekra.

"Many of these runs In which water Is to be Impounded are almost dry throughout the year, but. dining the wet season they run 'full. A large part of this water can be saved and turned Into domestic uses. It costs but little to construct a dam across a canyon, a mere earihen embankment serving the purpose, while In all section.' of the Irrigated region available canyon:1 and runs may be found. All that Is nec essary to make a satisfactory reservoir Is the construction of an embankment higher than the possible rise of the water and t " " . ' " w" ,.

This Is ths plan that the United States government Is carrying out on a large teals in the North Platte -valley, and the same method employed on a grand seals by the English government In Egypt to bring largo, areas under cultivation.

Less Llaht In May, According to the reports of the state oil Inspectors tiled during the last few years less oil is used during the month of May than any other month In ths year. This is due to the fact that the days are longer, the farmers are busier and the young man and the young woman turn to moonlight walks and shaddy nooks. Last year ths receipts for May were not sufficient to pay the expenses of the office. Decrease In Appeals. A very small number of cases were filed in the supreme court during the month of April, the number being 40 per cent lees than for April of last year. Clerk Herd' man surmises that this Is due to the fact that district courts are in session about this time and most of the lawyers are busy In thess courts. Another reason ad vanced Is that the new law requiring the filing of papers within six months of the time of appeal Instead of In one year as neretoiore, has discouraged appeals for delay. The cost of appeal would be too great lor the small time gained. Supreme Conrt Call. These cases will be called for hearing May 19. 1903, In the Supreme Court of Ne- orasxa: -. . .
