alaophuteV V straight . FOR THE V gk. . . AFFAIRS AT SOUTH OMAHA City Counoil Meets and Passes Bond Ordi nances on First Eeading. HIGH SCHOOL BONDS NOT IN THE LIST Decision Reached to Pave the Alley Between Twn4rrnarth and Twenty-Seventh Streets from 1i to R. Only four member of the council ana the mayor were present at the meeting held last night, Broderlck and Smith toeing detained at home. Three bond ordi nances were Introduced and read for the first time. One provided for the voting of 135,000 for an extension of the sewer- sys tem In the eastern portion of the city; an other for bonds to the amount of $60,000 for the purchase of a site and the erec tion of a city hall building. The overlap ordinance came' In last. It calls for bonds not to exceed $70,000 for the purpose of paying the dustandlng Indebtedness of the city. These ordinances were referred to the judiciary committee. According to the report of the special committee, the overlap on August 1, 1902, waa as follows: Salary fund, $6,860; pub lic light, $10,048; street repair, $2,234; water, $11,668; general, $11,678; fire, $8,761; curbing and pavement repairs, $2,000; police, $9,56&; interest, $7,300. In the ordinances Introduced the mayor la empowered to call a special election for June 23, when the proposition to vote on the bonds will be considered by the public. In the ordinances the bonds are to draw 4V4 per cent Interest and to run for twenty years. It may be possible that the rate of Interest may be raised to 6 'per cent, as some doubt was expressed after the meet ing In regard to the city floating bonds at bins tuna i iiiv rj jjor cent rate. ' ( . Very likely when the judiciary committee reports on the ordinances at an adjourned meeting, to be held this afternoon, the rat i J or interest win ds changed, with' a a, per jcen bond. H ia.asserted. that .the city 'can obtain a premium,' while with the' lower rata only' par will be paid. . On the claim of Thomas Nestor, CJty Attorney Murdoch reported' adversely find the report was adopted. ' A protest against the changing of the grade In the alley between Twenty-third and Twenty-fourth streets, from E to F streets, was read and referred to the city attorney and the street and alley com mittee. . O'Connor, chairman of the committee on printing, reported that as he had not been furnished with any copy for the blanks desired by the Fire and Police board,' he desired further time, and this was granted. When the bond' proposition ' was up in the council nothing was said about votln, bonds for a high school building,, as ni request had been made by the Board of Education for an ordinance providing for such an issue. The intention of the coun cil is to pass these bond ordinances thla week, and then, to set a date for tba re vision of registration. School District Bonds, At the meeting of the Board of Edu cation held last night It waa decided to submit to the people a proposition to vote bonds in the sum of $100,000 for the con struction of a high school building. It is presumed that the school district bonC question will be voted on at the same time as the city bond election, June 13. The apportionment or the coming school year, waa made. It calls .for $179,000, dl .vided as follows: " Teachers, $70,000; janl. tors, $12,000; supplies, $33,090; miscellaneous, $35,000; new buildings, $40,000; total. $179,000. Rules of the board were changed to con form to the new school law. An Inspection of buildings will be made by the six mem bers of the board on Saturday afternoon of this week. This Inspection is for the purpose of deciding upon what repairs and alterations are needed. ' No teachers were elected, but a large number of applications for positions were received. Superintendent McLean reported that the high school .would have twenty-five grad uates this year, but the date for the grad uating exercises was not set. Enumerators for the taking of the an nual school census were appointed. They are: .First ward, J. W, Creas; .Second ward, M!h4 Mary . Neenan;-' Third ward, Mrs. Caj-y Mullen; Fourth ward, M. J. FltigeraM; Fifth ward, William Broder lck; SJxUi ward. Harry L. Kelly. The next meeting of the board will be held on Monday evening, May 1$. Want Altera Paved. Several members of the city council who have been looking over ' the streets and alleys within the last few days have come to the conclusion that the alley between Twenty-fourth and ..Twenty-fifth streets from L to N should be paved. "This alley," said member of the council, ''Is Xused a a mother should be a source of joy to all, but the suffering and danger incident to the ordeal makes its anticipation one of misery. Mother' Friend is the only remedy which relieves women of the great pain and danger of maternity ; this hour which ia dreaded as woman's severest trial is not only made painless, but all the danger is avoided by its use. Those who use this remedy are no longer despondent or gloomy; nervousness, nausea and other distressing conditions are overcome, the system is made ready for the coming event, and the serious accioems so common to me critical hour are obviated by the use of Mother's mend, "it is worth its weight says many who have used it. bottle at drug stores.

It should be paved with either stone or vitrified brick,, and that right away." When talking on .this, pro position another member of the council said that the government did not pay for any pavements, therefore the cost of pav ing would have to be borne by the district when created. ' When the street nnd alley committee made up Its mind on this matter yesterday afternoon It was too late to have the city attorney draw an ordinance to be ready for the session' held last night. As surance was given that an. ordinance will soon be forthcoming and that the alley will be paved this summer at the expense of the property owners. ' Button Starts Suit. Attorney A.

( Judge Benjamin S. Baker of the' supreme court of New Mexico, together with Mrs. Baker, dropped in among their old friends in Omaha yesterday. The Judge Is In fine form physically and talks enthusiastically over New Mexico, and especially of Its reception to President Roosevelt, In 'which he had a leading part. 1 " -' "I am fresh from New Mexico; and It is all right," said Judge Baker. "There "have been many new finds In the gold and copper fields. The railroads are' at work on ex tensions and a new railroad that assures us $,000 miles more by 1904. The heavy rains and snows insure one of the best years for sheep, cattle and agriculture for many years. Large Investments are being made by outside capital In mines, lumber, stock and irrigating plants, so' that pros perity in New Mexico is visible on every hand. The territory has a great future. I think I am safe In predicting statehood for New Mexico In some form along Jointly with Arliona next congress, from a talk ' with the president. I think I am "war ranted in the conclusion that he Is for Joint statehood for New Mexico and 'Arl iona, allowing Arizona single statehood after acquiring a population of some $00,000. Statehood Is in the air and ia coming sure in 1904. "New Mexico gave the president a great reception on May t. Santa Fe did itself proud and Albuquerque's reception was sublime, and we, felt assured that the presi dent was pleased. In front of the speakers' stand, on an elevated and inclined' plat form was a living map of little girls, dressed In white, each properly located, and holding a banner of the state she repre sented. In front of the sisterhood of states was a rail fence and a small gate slightly ajar, inside of which stood Uncle Sam holding a star, and outside a small girl in white, representing New Mexico, reaching for the star. This tableaux pleased the president very much and he spoke of the 'little miss on the outside.' On the arch under which he waa driven were the worda, 'Roosevelt Statehood,' and between a pic ture of the president below, the figures 1904.' As we drove under the arch I said: Mr. President, how do you like our mottoT' He replied, 'There Is nothing the matter with that.' "We presented the president with a mem bership card of the Albuquerque Commer cial club In the form of a Navajos blanket, 23x53 inches. I drew the design, selected the colors and a Navajos squaw wove It The ground waa a beautiful red, the border of red, white and blue, with atars, squares and diamonds, while the center waa a large diamond of blue, bearing the inscription: 'The president, honorary membership card. Commercial club, Albuquerque, N. M., May t. 190$.' I tell you It was a beautiful saddle blanket and when the president said, I am delighted,' it was in no pro-forma manner, lie exclaimed, 'By George, It's a real Nava jos; it's the real thing!' In short, we gave him a spleqdld reception. "You can say New Mexico is all right, and I am much pleased with It and the people, and I shall do all I can to boost It along. Of course I can never forget the great state of Nebraska and my many good friends here, yet I am contented and satis fled with my new home. We have the finest climate and nicest people anywhere to be found. Mrs. Baker is with me. We are here on account of her mother's Illness and may stay several weeks. I had a hard year'a work, but my docket Is practically cleared Up. . barring some supreme court work my Urn ia my own till September L" WOMAN IN CLUB AND CHARITY Excepting the Inst ten minutes, the en tire session of yesterday afternoon's meet ing of the Woman's club was occupied with the election of officers and chairmen of standing committees. Not that there was any contest for the offices, but rather that withdrawals seemed the order of the day, much time being consumed In filling out the ticket, while a tie and a failure to secure a majority vote necessitated a sec ond ballot for the offices of first vice presi dent, treasurer and chairman of the house and home committee. When nominations were called for Mrs. H. 8. Jaynes arose and In the following words made the nomination for president: "I wish to nominate for a second term one who has endeared herself to her friends by her ever gracious tact and courtesy; who has shown unfailing energy In the discharge of her. duties and who has never swerved from her loyalty to the Omaha Woman's club and its best interests Mrs. F. H. Cole." The applause that followed waa most hearty and a motion was at once made that the secretary cast the ballot for the club unanimously for Mrs. Cole for presi dent. Prolonged applause followed, during which several bunches of flowers were carried to the platform, and when quiet had been restored Mrs. Cole thanked the women simply, saying that while It waa im possible to please everyone or be governed by the opinions of all, she had done con scientiously what in her Judgment seemed best. The unanimous re-election of Mrs. C. H. .Townsend' as second vice president and of Mrs. Edward Johnson as corre sponding secretary followed. Mrs. George Thompson refusing to serve a second term as first vice president, Mrs. R. M. Ste venson was elected' to succeed her. Mrs. A. W. Bowman succeeded Mrs. C. S. Lo blngler, who refused a second term as treasurer. Mrs. Charles Rosewater was elected recording secretary. The following chairmen of committees were elected: Auditing, Mrs. H." J. Penfold; constitution, Mrs. I. R. Andrews; courtesies, Miss Ethel wynne Kennedy; house and home, Mrs. H. S. Jaynes; library, Mesdames Miller, Towne and Crowley; membership, Mes dames E. B. Towle, Thomas Ward, Crow ley, Ralph Bush and Chlsem. Upon recommendation of the committee appointed to devise some means for rein stating delinquent members it waa pro posed that all "delinquent members, no matter of how long standing, be reinstated during the month of. May by .the payment of $3, that to stand aa membership fee for the coming year.- - This . recommendation was opposed on the ground that it waa unfair to those women who had come in last month and paid $5 for the remainder of this year and next, and the motion waa lost. . . ' Mrs. Mary Teats, national superintendent of the purity department of the Woman'a Christian Temperance union, waa then in troduced and presented greetings from the organization that she represents. Mrs. Teats Is in the city delivering a course of lectures under the auspices of the local union. Upon motion of the house it was decided to make the discussion and adjustment of the complimentary membership list, busi ness held over from last meeting, the first order of business at the next meeting, which will be the- first of the year. A piano solo by 'Mrs! Samuel Katx was fol lowed by the presentation and introduction of the newly elected' officers. ' Mrs. Mary Teats Will speak this evening at the Second Presbyterian church.

Russia had alao explained that it had no Intention of adopting any measure tending to ex clude foreign coneula or obstruct foreign commerce or the use of the ports. Under the circumstances the British government saw no sufficient reason for securing con certed action between the United States, Japan and Oreat Britain with the object, aa suggested by his questioner, Joseph Walton (liberal) "of arriving at a definite agreement with Russia for . the prompt fulfillment of ita assurance."

The French minister adds that the Chinese officials are not gravely concerned by Russia's alleged designs on Manchuria, being fully satisfied with the foregoing assurances.
