Clara Amelia Canada bhaw McKlee, Auretia, The reason for the withholding of the ppolntment of the Board of Review at Monday night's council meeting leaked out yesterday. Under the law the city trees- rer Is directed to name one member and the mayor the other. Both the treasurer nd the mayor were ready, but, at the solicitation of the democratic majority In the council, the naming of the board was cferred for one week. It appears that be fore voting to confirm the appointees the Jemocrattc majority wants soma conces- ilons from the mayor. In the first place. ihe democrats want Oeorge Dunscombe ap- olnted street commissioner. Then they want the mayor to employ a plumbing in spector and a building inspector. For early a year City Engineer Beal has at tended to the duties of these three offices besides looking after his own work, the mayor making no appointments to these acancles, for the reason that he la sav ing the city money and the taxpayers are getting Just as good if not better service than under the old system. In order to conform with the provisions tt the law the board must be appointea so as to be able to get down to work on June 15, as only ten days Is allowed for complaints to be heard and the equaliza tion of the taxes. Last year the valuation returned by City Tax Commissioner J. J. Fltsgeraid was 114,091.206. It was firmly expected by the majority of citiiens that the valuation this year would reach 120,000.000. Neither the mayor nor the councllmen will talk for publication about the matter, but It Is ex pected that a compromise will be effected before Monday night The Coal Situation. As far as the packers are concerned the coal situation Is practically unchanged. In order to tlds over packers purchasing agents are buying any 01a Kina 01 coai that will burn to keep the plants in opera tion. No coal was received here yester day for the packers, but some shipments are expected today or tomorrow. One of the packers said that there Is coal in signt, meaning that shipments are enroute, but he did not know where the cars are being held. Last night It was reported that there was a big shipment being held at Paclfio Junction and an effort was at once made to f nd a way to get the cars to the ards here. Railroad officials are doing all they can to assist the packers In hurrying forward coal and It looks now as if the famine would be over by the end of the week unless there Is a decided change for the worse In the weather. applying Southern Trade. South Omaha packers are taking care of the Kansas City trade and shipping pack Ine- house products Into the territory usually covered by the Kansas City pack ers. This will continue until the packing houses on the Kaw are In operation again. No effort was made yesterday to send dressed meats to Kansas City, as meats are now being sent direct from Chicago to the stricken city. On account of tba eloa- Ina- down of the Kansas City and Bt Louis packing houses the South Omaha packers will be kept busy for some tlms tn come surviving the southern traae. Is expected that many packing house em Dloves from Kansaa City will strike out for South Omaha as soon as 'they can get away and then the houses here will no doubt be run to their fullest capacity in order to supply ths demand for meats and other products of the packing houses. Seeking; Information. A committee composed of P. A. Wells, James H. Bulla and Charles A. uunnam haa been appointed by the Commercial club directors to procure information and statistics In connection with tha proposed bond Issue. This committee will explain In Its report Just why South Omaha Is in need of a new high school building, wny a eltv hall la neeaea ana wny wiw nn of the city should be extended. The Idea of the director of the club In appointing this committee is to place the matter be' fore the voters In the right light Some work was done yesterday by the committee and It hopes tha by Friday night It will have a complete report ready to submit. The meeting Friday night will be held at the parlors of the South Omaha club and a general Invitation Is extended to all interested in the voting of bonds for im provements at this time. Charles Akofer Dead. Charles Akofer died at his home. Twenty-fourth and K streets, at ( o'clock Tuesday afternoon. The deceased was one of the pioneer residents of the Magic City. During the greater part of his residence here Mr. Akofer was engaged in the retail meat business. For over a year he had been ailing, but death came unexpectedly. The deceased was a member of the local lodge of Eagles and the Modern Brother hood of America. The funeral will be held under the auspices of the Modern Brother hood. A special meeting of the Eagles has hn called for this evening at A. O. H. hall. 23H N street, for the purpose of tak in soms action. Arrangements for ths funeral will be announced later. No Quorum, Only two members, Chairman Vanaant and Secretary Bergquist of the Fire and Police board, appeared at the council chamber last night and after a moment's conversation Chairman Vanaant announced to those who had gathered to listen to the proceedings that there would be no meet ing. It is presumed that the at-sence of Mr. Nolan from the city was the cause of there being no meeting. Still Conferring?. Representatives of the packers and the labor unlona are still conferring. Yester day the conference devoted its attention to skilled labor, especially in the pork butcher and the easing departments. The best of feeling still prevails between the representatives and it is expected that all differences will be settled this week. Nei ther the packers nor the labor representa tives will give out the scales submitted. This will not be done until the difficulty is settled, and then the scale to be paid will be announced. Fllllag Vacancies. Members of the city council are preparing to nil vacancies on the Board of Registra tion, which meets on June 20 for a revision of the registration books. Every one who desires to vote on the bond proposition must be registered. In addition to filling the vacancies on the board the council will select the places for holding the regis tration.

The following letter from President George B. Harris of the Chicago, Burling ton & Qulncy railway, which was read at the Commercial club yesterday, gave con siderable satisfaction: I have received your favor of the 27th Inst... with the netitlon of a larae number of the responsible business men of Omaha, who desire, In case we build a line to aioux City, that the Interests of Omaha shall be fully considered. I nave to say mat mis will b done, and whatever may be done at first we expect to linally furnish Omaha with a practicable and convenient connec tion for Sioux City and the country oe- yond. It is known that the H. interests pro pose to build a line from Bloux City down Into Nebraska to Ashland, with the idea of getting a direct route for Nebraska grain to the lake ports and the Hill water lines. It the connecting link is built, as It prob ably will be. It will only need the con struction of a short cut off from Omaha to a point near Fremont to give this city a direct route to Sioux City and the country beyond. Omaha Jobbers desire this very much, as It will Increase their advantages in the competition with St. Paul and Minneapolis In the territory north of Sioux City, especially In South Dakota. A.-1de from the letter. President Harris has given verbal assurance that when the Ashland extension is put In the cut off will be built. If Fremont is made the Junction point that city will have another railroad to Omaha and the east together with the new communication to the northeast $000 APPEALS TO SUPREME COURT John O.

' VASELINE XO-OOD FOR HAIR, Dandruff Germ Thrives la It, as Well as la All Grease. A well known Chicago hair specialist In vited the Inter Ocean reporter to come to his office and see, under a microscope. how the germ that causes dandruff thrives In vaseline. The specialist said that all hair preparations containing grease simply furnish food for the germs and help to propagate them. The only way to cure land ruff Is to destroy the germs, and the only hair preparation that will do that Is Newbro's Herplclde. "De stroy the cause, you remove the effect.' Without dandruff no felling hair, no bald ness. Ask for Herplclde. It is the only destroyer of the dandruff germ.

Joseph Tolbert, the colored porter of a Missouri Pacific Pullman sleeper, waa run down and Instantly killed last night shortly after o'clock by a Union Pacific diner that was being switched into the Union station. The accident occurred Just west of the Tenth street viaduct. Tolbert had Just finished his run, coming in on the belated Missouri Pacific train from Kansas City.

Donahue, the pilot of the Union Pa cific train crew, saw him disappear In front of the Union Paclfio dining car, No. ' 317. that was being backed Into the station, and not observing htm pass on to the other Side, at once surmised-the result. The dining car was stopped immediately and Tolbert was found lying Just under the front trucks, lengthwise across the track He had evidently been knocked down and rolled along the track by the trucks, which had also passed over him. Police Physician Trostler was at once notified, and went down to the scene of the accident, finding Tolbert lying In the post tlon described. With the aid of Captain Hate and one or two other officers the body was dragged from the track, the onlv visible Injury being about the head. Coroner Bralley was summoned and took charge of the body. ' Tolbert was carrying a bunch of flowers and a bowl when struck by the car. He was one of the oldest Pullman porters In Omaha, having been for msny years a porter on the Union Pacific. For the last fifteen or twenty years he was a porter on the Missouri Pacific. He haa a son living In Sioux City, but has been separated from his wife for many years.
