SAYS SCHOOLS MUST BRACE Colonel Soale Would Admit Only High School Graduate. Colonel George Soul of New Orleans yes terday afternoon startled some members of the Western Commercial School Manager' association. Colonel Soule told the con vention delegates that in. hi Judgment the time has come to admit only high school graduate to business college. Th speaker admitted that It will be diffi cult to bring about such a change suddenly, "But it must come," he added. "I don't believe, either, in graduating pupil," said Colonel Soule, "unless th stu dent I proficient enough to warrant it and our schools will profit in th nd by raising standard in thee respect even though it mean a decrease In number of student at the beginning." Tbe convention also heard some plain talk In th afternooa from W. N. Ferris of Big Rapids. Mich., who spoke upon "Manner and Moral." -- . The two are very closely co-related," said Mr. Ferris, "and they go hand In band, i though, of course. It doe not follow that well-mannered people always hav good ethic. " Mr. Ferris advocated dally lessons in etiquet and In support of this told of young barbarians who hav attended h's own institution. , Leeturo for Boiled Linen. Talking of hi own boyhood days on the farm, th speaker said he lacked many advantage of proper training In etluuet. He described hi sensation while attending hi first banquet, and gave many examples of th necessity of paying attention to the little details of life. He told of talking plainly to a youth with regard to th wear Ing of dirty collar and cuffs.

The annual custom of the veterans of the civil war, addressing th public schools, was very generally carried out in Omaha Friday. The schools were all prettily decorated for tbe occasion, and patriotic exercises were carried out in all of them, embracing short patriotic recitations, patriotic songs, the delivery of Lincoln's Gettysburg ad dress In unison. y In several -of the schools the exercises were hejd in the forenoon, but the more general observance was during the after noon session of the schools. The exercises were very generally attended by the par ents and friends of the pupils. The general character of the addresses delivered by the old veterans were reminis cent of the war days and war time ex periences. Some related wholly to the preservation of the American patriotic spirit and of eternal fidelity to th flag and American institution. Among tbe speak er were several of the Spanish-American war veterans and withal the exercise were full of patriotic interest. The speakers in almost every Instance were presented with handsome bouquet of flowers, and in all instance wer most loy ally and reverently received by the school and their teacher. Those who spoke at the school were! High School H. E. Palmer. Bancroft W. W. Eastman. Cass John A. Dempster, Beala C. F. Weller. Castellar Charles W. Allen, Central J. H. bhugart Central Park J. 11.

V Catholic Authorities Object to Use of 0. A. E. Eitual in Holv Sepulchre Cemetery There seems to be a hitch In a part of the program regarding the decoration of the graves of Cathollo soldiers burled In th Holy Sepulcher cemetery. Th duty of decorating the grave of veterans In this cemetery was assigned to - Custer 'post. Grand Army of the Republic, and Custer Woman's Relief Corps, Saturday morning at 10 o'clock, and th Grand Army ritual services were to be carried out Monday morning at 10 o'clock. . Owing to objection of the Catholid authorities having eontrol of the oometery, the decoration services at Holy Sepulcher cemetery have been abandoned, Monslgnor Colaneri says that the Cath olic authorities have no objeotlon to allow ing the Grand Army to decorate the graves of the deceased members in the cemetery, and hope that the Catholic soldiers will be honored with a wreath and a flag, but the authorities do object to the use of any religious ritual In the cemetery except that of the Cathollo church. . "When the representatives of the- Grand Army came to me," said the monslgnor, "I made it plain to them that they might decorate the graves and fire a volley it they wished, but the cemetery Is conse crated ground and wa cannot permit any other ritual to bo used but that of th Cathollo church." Councilman McGovern has started a flurry that may end In a law suit, brought bysthe city, to ascertain Just what rlRlus certain companies have to secure permits in general terms and then proceed to bo- come parties to what the Ninth ward coun cilman claims 1 a plain violation of law. The case which has aroused Mr. Mc Govern, and which has enlisted the lively Interest of the city engineer's department, has to do with a lunch wagon situated partly on the sidewalk and partly on a lot on Fifteenth street, between Chicago end Cass. The gas company secured a permit to lay a "service" pipe to 415 North Fifteenth street. It happens there is no house at that number, but there Is a lunch wagon situated as stated. On the permit secuied the gas company proceeded to cut the new pavement and laid a pipe under the curb and sidewalk, then through the floor of the lunch wagon to connect with a gas stove. Examination of the ordinance governing the location of lunch wagons show that the one In question is within the lines of the district in which lunch wagon may be located, and the engineer's record show the permit was regularly granted for the cutting of the street to lay a "service' pipe. Councilman McGovern contends that such permits should not be granted, while As sistant City Engineer Campen contends the engineering department cannot very well go behind the requests of the gas company, when a house number is given to find out in every case Just what is In tended. This particular case has seemed to many of the councilman so flagrant that an attempt will be made to have a test, In court. If necessary. And in the meantime the ordinance providing for the Issuance of permit to cut the pavement will be made more strict and definite.

A can of powerfully explosive and In- flamable disinfectant standing high on shelf In the store room of the city Jail was leaking a slender stream of the deadly fluid, which oosed down a crack In the plaster toward a burning gas Jet. Slowly th stieam crept along, a moving fuse to the canned terror ' above. A few Inches more to seep along the plaster and then the crash. Tom Baughman, chauffeur-ln-chlef of the police automobile fleet, passing through the halls, detected the odor ot something akin to gasoline. He pushed open the stock room door and, guided more by in stinct than discernment, dashed to the light and turned It out. Subsequent Investigation showed . that a minute mot and the store room would have been torn by a blast from th ex ploding disinfectant, which could not but have thrown fire and destruction Into every recess ot th delapidated building.
