A grand campfiire was held at the

encores in a most pleasing manner.
Considerable complaint has recently
been made to the city authorities abou'
the manner in which Charley E. Ilubbal,
the young man who was killed Decembei
31st in the B. & JL yards, was buried.
The father says that the boy always ab
bored the idea of being buried, and U.
his desire to honor his dead son built it
vault on t"p of the ground with a glas?
facing, and placed the coffin containing
the remains in this. To this manner of
burial exceptations haye been taken, and
today notice was served on the father
' requesting him to bury his son.
A humiliating and troublesome
blunder has been made by School Dis
trict No. 2S, located northwest of Platts
mouth. Last fall the school , house in
that distsict was destrayed by fire. Tl e
district proceeded immediately to hold
- an election, and ambititiously voted $ GOO
bonds for the erection of a new school
house. Their school population is only
twenty-three ana when this is the case
the law provides they shall not vote
bonds to exceed $500 so that the f GOO
bonds are not valid, and the election 'is
of no effect; the election will hare to be
recalled and bonds voted not to exceed
the $500, unless the school population
can' be increasxl, even then another
election will have to be held to tnnke
$300 bonds good. The bonds were
made out in proper shape and sent to the
state auditor at Lincoln to be recorded
where they were refused.
The City Council Acts on tftroot

A communication was read from Mr.
C. SL Twias, who is now engaged in
taking the school census, stating that if
the council would make an appropriation
for the purpose ho would take the com

A motion from Mr. Murphy that the
street commissioner be instructed to hire
a foreman for the work, carried.
Mr. Murphy, after a discussion of the
slope of the bank of the cut on Third

A. man surely don't know what trials
of life are till he serves a term on the
jury. A prominent business man of this
city, who is on the jurv, and who loves
sport strolled down to the depot this
morning before court, and there found a
party of sporting friends W. D. Jones,
VV. II. Baker, A. W. White, J. Q. Richey,
Jim Johns and Max Lemm bound for
Lake VVambaunsie, Iowa, to have a grand
hunt. The great occasion was explained
to the juryman, and then tiie boys said:
"Come, Tom, the judge won't say any
thing." But Tom had considerable con
fidence in the judge's idea of business
and said no, he guessed he couldn't go
this time, though it was a trying ordeal.
The Iv. C. came and the party moved cd,
leaving the juror ts the dictates of his
conscience and the mercy of his fellows
who might keep him out a week at a
time. "Honesty is the best policy" and
it may be the juror will get out all right
yet. The next train from Omaha brought
Mr. Van who was to have gone with
the party, but got left, and intends to go
on to the lake tonight. Ths juror learned
of this, and he was seen today pleading
earnestly with the judge on several oc
casions for s release, that he might join
Mr. V .
