Com' mlssloner Cornish did not attend Wednes day evening the meeting of the South Side Second Ward Improvement club, though invited to do so, but instead sent an tnvita tlon to tho club to attend the next meeting of the park board. In turn the club mad another criticism, to the effect that it was Mr. Cornish's duty to attend tha meeting. In explanation, but not defense, Commls stoner Cornish now states that he could not, in Justice to himself or In courtesy to bis fellow commissioners, attend the meet ing. The engaging of muslo for Hanscom park, which wa the action the club had criticised and desired him to explain, waa opposed by him at two meetings of the board and don at another meeting by the other member when he wa out of town. He had nothing whatever to do, he says, with providing music or. hiring any band. but it would not be proper for him to at tend an Improvement club meeting and criticise his colleague on the board or de fend an act which he had opposed in the board.

Oon- ; j d . rf f " vt """" CORPORATIONS PRODUCE NO TESTIMONY Board After Hearing the Evidence tart In on Night Session to Deride What it Will Do In the Matter. Thursday wa the closing day of the ten days' session of ths Board of Review. From I a. m. until 6 p. m., with the exception of the lunch hour the board waa busy listen ing to testimony and considering state ments made by corporation attorneys. Mr. Koutsky waa on the stand the greater portion of the afternoon and In reply to questions from his attorney gave out a number of facts and figures concerning the packing Industry In South Omaha, along with what he considered a conservative valuation of the personal and real property of the corporations against which com plaints had been filed. Some of the testi mony of Mr, Koutsky was decidedly amusing while portions were entirely too serious to be laughed at. Attorneys for the corporations subjected Mr. Koutsky to a most thorough examina tion and his replies to questions asked showed that he had made a study of valuer, particularly of corporations, for a number of years. While the corporations did not refute by testimony the charges filed by Mr. Koutsky, the attorneys representing the packers and the stock yards company made statements to the board to the effect that the valua tions, a compared with 1902, had been raised, and they thought the Increase made last year waa sufficient to hold for a time. Therefore they considered the figures re turned by Tax Commissioner Fltsgerald for 1901 wer entirety too high. It was practically admitted by these attorneys that lf th valuation was made the same this year as it was In 1902 no remonstrance would b made. Vain of Stock Yards, When the case against the stock yards waa called Mr. Koutsky was not examined. His place on the witness stand was taken by L. A. Davis, one of the stockholders of the company. Under examination con ducted by Mr. Lambert, Davis stated thnt he owned sixty shares of stock in the yards. He asserted that the stock was worth over $100 a share and that the stock was all paid up. As for dividends Mr. Davis de clared that he received at least 6 per cent Interest annually on his stock. Further he stated that he would not sell his stock for $100 a share. In fact he did hot care to part with It at all Mr. Lambert then asked the witness what was the amount of the last check he re celved from the yards company. Before an answer could .be made Davis received a hunch to shut up. From that time on his memory failed him and no further in formation of Importance was secured. All of the proceedings were taken down In shorthand by an Omaha court reporter and a record will thus be made in case it be comes necessary to refer to It later. The members of the board made minutes as the Important points in the testimony were brought out for the purpose of refreshing their minds at the meeting held last night when the valuations were equalised, Under the law no complaints could be heard about t p. m., and so shortly after thta hour the board adjourned for dinner, At T p. m. the board met In the council chamber- and proceeded to go over the complaint. . ' first It was the intention to takv u recess until today but both City Attorney Murdoek and C. C. Lambert, the attorney representing Joseph Koutsky, con sidered that it would be better to hold night session and finish up th work hi the time allowed by law After remaining In executive session for five hours the board took a recess at mid night for lunch. It was stated at this hour that the consideration of the valuation of th packing houses and stock yards would be tsken up again after lunch and that the session would most likely last until nearly morning. High School Improvements, Going on the supposition that the high school bond voted at Tuesday's special election can b old, the Board of Educa tlon Is making preparations for securing plans for a building. Dana Morrill, presl dent of th board, said yesterday that architects would be asked to submit plans subject to' approval by the board. Mr, Morrill figure that after the request has been made by the board It will take arch! tects fully six weeks to prepare plan. Then some time will naturally be taken by the board in going over the plans, lf any are submitted on the basla proposed by the board. Next will come advertising for bids from contractors. All of these preliminaries will take time and the chance are that it will be well along In the fall before construction work can com mence, Further, Mr. Morrill stated that the plans of Architect L. A. Davis, for which the school district ha o far paid $1,900. will not be considered by the present board, al though formally accepted by a former board. Mr. Morrill considers that the Davis plans ar entirely too expensive, alleging that to construct the building on these plana would mean an expenditure of not less than $160,000. Th suggestion has been made to some of the members of the board that it might be wise to wait and see if the bonds can be floated before going to any great ex pense In securing plans ana letting con tracts. Some of the board members assert that should th bond fall to sell, a ward school building, similar to the Jungmann school, would be erected on a portion of the high school site. Aa lajaaetloa Threateaed Some of the residents In the eastern por tlon of th city are greatly disappointed at the failure of th e-er bond to carry, In order to prevent the use of the creek east of Twentieth street ss a sewer, meeting wa held last night by residents and property owners and It wa decided to employ an attorney to go Into court and If possible secure an order restraining th. nalna- of th N street u.tr fur a.i t.r nri. This oueatlon ha. a number of times, but for some reason haa always been dropped. Some yesrs ag when th nrsi sanitary connection was mad with this sewer, which was supposed by many to have been constructed for storm water purpose only, protests wer filed with th mayor and council. A th number of residences from Twenty-fourth ., . Tarantlath lnrr , " . ' I ' owners were permitted to make sanitary connections. About three year. . . lv"' named Kerr took the cases of those living east of Twentieth street and stsrted -ult against th. city, but Kerr disappeared I and the case was abandoned. Now those Interested assert that they will employ an I and endeavor to have the city or prop- I erty owners on N street construct a sanl- tary sewer from Twentieth street east to Thirteenth. Since Lawyer Kerr started his ease the Jungmann school haa been built and connected with this N street sewer. Two saloons at Twentieth and Q streets are also connected. The plaintiffs in this case want the courts to stop the use of this sewer for sanitary purposes and thus force Immediate action In the matter of building new sewer. Library Foundation Completed. Contractor Wlese stated last evening that the foundation for the Carnegie library at Twenty-third and M streets was practically completed. Additional material Is being re ceived end Mr. Wlese expects to push his work ss rapidly as possible. A quantity of stone for the building Is already cut, this work being done In Omaha. The stone will be hauled here as the setters need it, and with favorable weather the outside walls f the building will soon begin to rise. Ac cording to the contract the building Is to be completed by January 1, 1901. Paying Rlertloa Jadgea. City Clerk Shrlgley stated yesterday that th council could scrape up enough money to pay the Judges and clerks who served at the recent special election. Mesibers of the registration board will also be In cluded. Already some of the Judges, clerks and registrars are clamoring for their money and as th matter is to be brought to the attention of the council Monday Ight it is thought a sufficient sum will be pproprlated to take up these obligations. Second Installment Doe. On July 1 the second installment of the 1902 city taxes becomes due. Yesterday Swift and Company sent to the elty treas urer a check for $4,250, aa th lost half of last year's taxes. Other corporations who took advantage of the law permitting the tax to be paid In two Installments will make payment on or .before July 1. Very few of the amall property owners held back as they could have done, so that the work In making out atatements for the second half will not be as great aa when the first Installment is collected on Janu ary 1.

DESPONDENT BECAU.E OF ILL-HEALTH Gets Into Bank at Flace of Employ ment aad Apparently Makes De. liberate Preparations for Ending Ills 1.1 fe. Despondent because of Ill-health, Flts hugh John, better known as John Peter son, committed suicide some time after 11 Wednesday night by shooting himself through the heart. The tragedy occurred in tha tannery of O. R. Gilbert, 1124 South Thirteenth street. The body waj found by Mr. Gilbert at 9:30 yesterday morning. Coroner Bralley was notified and will hold an inguc.it, probably Friday. Peterson had made careful preparations before shooting himself. Upon a long shelf along the north side of the building he had made a bunk of dressed hides and appar ently to keep the blood from staining these, over them he had placed a laprobe. lie then got Into the bunk and covered the lower portion of his body with a horse blanket. These were all in place when the body was found, except the cover, whlc'h had been s'.lghtly disarranged, showing that the man had struggled some after the shooting. The right arm of the suicide was over the top of the head and the left arm was curved over the left breast. From the position of the latter arm It Is presumed that Peterson held the revolver to his heart with his left hand and. pulled the trigger with his thumb. The revolver was by his left side near his arm and had evidently fallen back over the hand after the shoot ing. Came Here from St. Paal. Peterson was about 33 years of sge, un married, and came to Omaha from St. Paul three years ago to work in the Gilbert taanery. For the last three weeks he had been feeling sick and did no work. He feared paralysis and It Is believed this caused him to take his life. For some time he had made his home at the Thurston hotel. Wednesday, however. employes at the tannery left on a fishing trip and Peterson had promised to rleep In the ptace and look after It during their absence. He was seen about 11 o'clock Wednesday night In a saloon near where he had been employed and that was the last seen of him alive. When the body was discovered by Mr. Gilbert the latter thought Peterson had died a natural death and did not know that he had shot himself until the arrival of the coroner. A hole was torn in the man's left breast and the blood had clotted on his undershirt. He was fully dressed with the exception of a shirt nd coat. On a table near where the body was found was a half pint bottle partially filled with whisky. Peterson's right name was Fltrhugb John, but for some reason he preferred to be called John Peterson and by this name he was known In Omaha.

The clubwomen of the Loulslan Purchaae states, who petitioned the worlds fair legislative committee to "strike out suoh clauses as provide for a special woman's department," as Mrs. Kretschmar says. saved the world from a new proclamation that wc still knit, and that knitting, being very commendable, should be prettily rewarded though naturally only as an un important, 'side Issue of human activity," but, it would seem, not quits in tne man ner they planned.
