told his family that ho had been dis
missed from the service. If his wife
knew it tho a flair had not troubled
hor much, as she, too, was in a joyful
tnood beforo tho tragedy occured. He
had not told any of tho shop men of
his ill fortune, and but one or two per
sons in tho village know of it. Ilia
discharge had not yet become gossip.
It is known that he had expected to
bo asked to resign, because he had j
discussed this possibility with friends
some time ago, which is still fresh in
tho public mind, and has not yet
eeasod to bo a .subject of common con
versation on tho streets of 4Iavelock,
he feared that he would be let out,and
confided his fears to some of his per
sonal friends but to Done of the men at
Those who remembered his visits to
the shops during tho day said that he
had had little to say, although he was
not morose, nor did he apper to be
brooding over troubla of any kind.
One of his foremen said that he had
been more than usually attentive to
work in the shops during the day, and
had visited every department and in
spected 4 progress of the work.
Mr. Grousel's dom ;stio troubles bo
gan recently. Hi9 wife died last
March and he remarried August 2S to
Mrs. K. W. Allensby of Lincoln. The
marriage occured at Council Bluffs
the day following the arrest of Mr.
Greusel and Mrs. Allensby in a room
at an Omaha hotel.
Mrs. Allensby and her husband had
separated, she having secured a di
vorce last spring. The couple were
traced to Omaha by Mr. Allensby who
desired to secure evidence to show that
his wifo was not a proper person to
have possession of their five-year old
son Floyd Allensby. Following the
arresv Mr. Allensby said he did not
desire to prosecute the couple. All he
wanted was possession of his son who
had been given into care of Mrs.
Allensby. She refused to give any
satisfactory answer to thia proposi
tion. On the day following Mr. Greusel
and Mrs. Allonsby went to Council
Bluffs and wero married. They re
turned to Tlavelock immediate. Mr.
Greusel stated that he had been pay
ing attention to Mrs. Allensby and
that he had announced to members of
his family that he intended to marry
her at tho end of the first year after
the death of his first wife.

Mr. Greusel had worked for the Bur
lington thirty-six years. Fie learned
" his trade at Aurora, III. In 1879 he
was sent to this city to be foreman of
tho shops, and ho held that position
here for many years. He was trans
ferred to Havelock when the shops
were built there, and since that time
hat been th matter mechanic under
Superintendent of Motive 1'owor 1).
Hawksworth Ho was counted one of
the host mechanic in tho Jtorvloe of
tho Burlington, and was a man of

E S Greusel was llfty-four years of
age. He leaves a wife, throe children

His mother lives in Havelock. His
eldest child, a daughter, is marriod
and lives with hor husband at Univer

father's death Immediately last night,
It being feared that the news might
result seriously to her. Two young
sons are also left, one thirteen years
of age and the other five yearn of age.
,It is said that Mr. Greuael two weeks
asro carried $7,000 life insurance, but
his relatives feared that he had al
lowed some of the insurance to lapse
since that time. In addition to this it
is known that ho took out a 82,000
policy in the New York Life company
two weoks ago. Ills friends thought
that he had at least $5,000 life insur

to his heirs and not to any particular

SCHOOL BOARD'S STATEMENT.
The Necessity of m New .School Itullrilng
I Very Apparent.
The following etatomont signed by
tho members of the board of educa
tion Messrs. D. 15. Smith, George
Dodge, C. M. Butler, F. G. Fricke, J.
It. Cox and 11. B. Windham is res
pectfully submitted to the public in
order that the public may have a clear
conception of the reasons which actu
ated the board in their action in re
gard to a new high school building:
"Tho proper seating capacity of tho
high school room is 12G, and the at
tendance at present is 175, or 49 more
than seats, and tho prospects for tho
coming year are thai tho attendance
will reach 200 pupils. One of the
rooms on the third floor of the central
building was given up to the high
school, and thus the high school is
to be operated temporarily until some
relief could be provided. This merely
permits the classes to be heard, but in
no way relieves the congestion in the
high school itself. If the high school
enrolls 200 pupils next fall, as is indi
cated at present, it would be impos
sible to organize the high school at
all in the central building without the
removal of the grades from the third
floor, and the making of the top floor
into one room, using tho top floor as
an Assembly room and the four rooms
on the third floor for recitation pur-po-ea.
In this ca6e 6ome provision
would have to be made for the pupils
in the three rooms on the third floor.
In ttiis event a three-room building or
a two-room and a one-room building
would be built upon the north and
west side of the city. The conditions
around the "old, "or west Fourth ward
building, are such that neither the
board or the patrons desire to use it in
tho future. With the plan of placing
the high school upon the upper two
floors of the central building, the
board believe that the climbing of the
stairs to the top floor and the going
up aud down stairs between classes
would be a constant source of injury
to the health of pupils, especially the
girls, and that by locating the high
school there this injury would con
tinue to be inflicted upon the pupils
for years to come.
"The top floor Is the only floor
which can be made into one room
capable of seating the pupils, and as it
is necessary to have one room where
all the pupils can be seated, with reci
tation rooms near at hand, the organ
ization of the high school is only
feasible upon the third and fourth
floors, and if the high school should
increase in the next few years in any
thing like the ratio that It has in the
past few years, the top floor would not
be large enough. The board desires
that whatever arrangement be made
should be permanent, and that future
increase be allowed for, so that there
would not be a necessity for a re-arrangement
in a few years at an addi
"In the next place the board believes
that the central building is none too
strong, and that the great weight of
over-crowded rooms on the top floor is
a serious menace to the building. The
Omaha high school building has just
been condemned as a fire-trap and the
board does cot believe that our build
ing is in any better condition. It is
believed that the great mass of the
patrons desire that the top floor be
abandoned, as does the board, on ac
count of the weakness of the building,
the great loss of life which would be
the result of a Gre or panic and also on
account of the constant and, in many
cases, permanent injury to the health
of the pupils in the climbing of the
stairs, especially as (If the high
school were placed on the third and
fourth floors) the pupils would not only
have to go up and down on the fourth
floor but would have to go up and
down 6tairs to every class.
''The board, therefore, has deolded
to build a high school building on the
southwest corner of the present high
school grounds. It is their intention
to build a one-story building, with a
main room soatlng 240 pupils suffl
cient, unquestionably, for years to
come,and necessary class rooms adjoin
ing. It is the intention to heat this
building with the same steam plant
at the central building, and by these
plans the employment of an extra
janitor is avoided, together with the
expense of a steam plant. Only a few
radiators will be needed, as the radia
tors upon the top floor of the present
building will furnish more than half
tho radiation desired. Tho building
is to be made as inexpensive as pos
sible no money being wpont upon
"gingerbread work," so-called.
"To those who would favor a two
btory building instead of one, the
board desires to call attention to the
following facts: A two-story building
would probably look more symmetrical
and might make a somewhat more at
tractive building in appearance al
though a one-story bulldlDg will not
be unattractive but that is about the
only feature in fe.vor of a two-story
building. In a two-story building
there are stairs to climb between
classes, four and five times a day. It
is more expensive, for while the roof
of a one-story building H more expen
sive than a two-story building, tho
walls can b9 of lighter material, the
foundations need not be so heavy, hall
space does not have to be provided for,
the cxpenso of stairs are avoided,
while it is possible to so construct a
one-story building that several of the
recitation rooms can bo thrown into
connection with tho main rooom by
means of folding partitions, and thus
making a largo auditorium capable of
seating not only the pupils, but their
parents, and thus making entertain
ments feasible which ia is impossible
in a two-story building.
"It is the intontion of tho board to
build tho building from tho regular
school revenues as was the case with
the Columbian building, levying a
few mills each year to bo applied to
the payment for this building. The
Columbian building waa paid for in
two years by this method, and by thus
spreading tho expense over three or
four years, tho burden will bo light,
comparatively. Thus it will not be
necessary to issue bonds, and the
building will be built and paid for in
a few years, in all probability. The
board desires to call attention to tho
following fact: On Juno 1, ISOti, the
board wrs in debt something over
f7,-')00, and on June 1, this year, the
board was out of debt, having oper
ated tho schools and wiped out the
debt at the samo tirao.
"During these throe years, also, tho
schools have been raised to among
tho first in tho state, and .it is thia
high rank with tho university that is
the main cause of tho fact that nearly
twice as many pupils corao into tho
high school during tho last thrco
years from the eighth grade, as was
the caso before. Tho graduating class
of this year numbers sixteen, but the
indications aro that tho. classes for
several years to corao hereafter, will
number in tho neighborhood of "0 or
Tho great increase both in rank
and enrollment during tho last few
years ought to bo a sourco of gratifica
tion to every citizen and by tho con
struction of tho new building tho high
school should continue to erow both
in numbers and ia rank a source of
pride to the entire city."
CONDUCTED ON POPULIST PLANS
United Mutual Hull Insurance Company'
Way Not Satisfactory.
From Wednesday's Daily.
J. P. Falter was in Lincoln yesterday
for the purpose of learning, if possible,
upon what plans the United Mutual
Insurance company did business. Aa
was announced in The News one day
last week a number of the stockholder a
of this 'mutual" concern held a meet
ing at tho court house in thia city last
Saturday, having become convinced
that there was something wrong when
they were notified that they had been
assessed 4 per cent. It was decided
to send J. P. Falter to Lincoln to in
vestigate the matter. j
He stated to a News reporter this
morning that he investigated the
thing aa best he could, but was still
unable to comprehend just why a 4
percent assessment had been made
unless it was for the benefit of the
parties in charge. He found that the
total amount of insurance in force in
the state was $3,009,000 and the losses,
they claimed, were $72,100. In Cass
county there are 279 stockholders, rep
resenting 8188,000 insurance. The 4
per cent assessment on tho total
amount of insurance in the state
amounts to $120,000. Taking the $72,
000 losses the company sustained there
is $18,000 remaining. Mr. Falter in
quired of the secretary what was to be
done with thia amount and he stated
that that waa to defray tho expanses
and incidentals. He found no one in
the office except J. F. Zimmers. the
secretary, and a young ladj'. There
was but one book,a ledger, and he was
unable to understand how such a large
sum of money could be used.
Mr. Falter states that It is a populist
concern and in making inquiries of
the state officers they speak very
highly of it.
Another meeting of Cass county
stockholders ia called for next Satur
day, when it will be determined what
action will be taken in the matter.
Hansen Bound Over.

that he would have no trouble in se
curing the same. He stated that his
family and crops needed his attention.
