It la said that there nro between four
and five thousand school districts In the
ntato which are furnished cortaln blanks
by the ntato superintendent , for Instance
blanks for district reports. Taking for
granted that Cvo such blanks are sunt to
each district and allowing Cvo thousand
districts in the state It would make a to
tal for each year of 2,500 blankc.
It is very tiuo and artistic printing that
can not bo obtained for $10 per than-
sand , a pen which basis the cost of the
25,000 blanks would amount to $250 ,
which Is a pocd fair cstimato for ordinary
printing. This would leave a surplus of
$750 In this ono Item.
The Horn of $1,000 for
publishing the school laws Is
clearly ont cf proportion. The work
is doiio in pamphlet form , and oatsldo of
actual composition is Inexpensive. A
BEE reporter called at Snpsrlntondeut
.Tor ci'office , but fonnd that gentleman
had loft the city. Hla clerk was askort
concerning the $0,000 Item against which
is marked records for school districts and
plans for school houses. The gontlmnsn
oald that formerly superintendents of dls-
tricts woru allowed to purchase their own
rocoiihwhich are books properly ruled
end arranged to comprehend the nnmber
of pnpils attending school and other data
for the i iformitlon of proper au-
thorlt C3 from any source the din-
trial nipeilntendents thought proper.
Some time olnco Superintendent
Jonca thought it wonld be more ccomm-
cal for him to furnith the books to the
various dlatrlotr , and the ohatg } was
made In accordance with his vlor/s. It
will ba soon that 52,500 a year Is sot
aside for thcsa books. Which certainly
must furnitih a vary elaborate article In
deed. Tbo clerk in Mr. Jones' oflico
said that heretofore smo money had
been made on the stationery and printing
done for the superintendent ! ) offic ? , but
that ho did not bollovo thoru wonld bo
nny realized for the next ensuing yearn.
When asked why , ho said that thura had
been competition in the bidding for the
work. Ho did not explain thnt the cam-
petition bids wora not of such a character
na to take It away from the hcuse which
has heretofore done the work ,
viz : tbo Stnto Journal of this city. The
superintendent bus not yet filed tny
vouchers with the auditor ( or nork un

A Mil ED AFFAIlt.
A pocnliar case cimo up for trial before
Justice Brown yesterday. Jnly 150th

The mornbots of the executive com

grounds for the purpose of looking ovc
the improvements already mndo and dl
rooting operations on others content
plntod. A BEE reporter accompanies
them to sco whathcidrray had bicu mad
co far In preparing for the great event
Porfivo weeks the fair grounds Imvo been
tha econo of lively preparations , and
largo amount of work has bcon acom
pllshod. A force of sixty men has teen
employee ? , nnd under the efficient super
vision of Mr. A. J. Potter the aspect o
the park has changed wonderfully. Th
now buildings , frojh paint and qouorallj
bright appearance of the place has given
it an air of something grand to follow
Tro moat striking object on the
grounds is the elegant new amphitheatre
which Is norr nearly completed. It Is
the finest ono of the kind In the state
and Is a source of pride to iti pro
jectors. It has a seating oapac
Ity of 3,000 , tnd from
any part of it the entire stretch of the
: rack is visible. Tbo scats are wldo and
comfortable , arranged In tiers , ono above
another , and at the top Is a wide prome
nade. In the cantor It Is proposed to
place sx hundred reserved chairs , and
everything Is to bo so arranged as to se
cure the greatest amount of comfort to
the occupant ? .
Thirty now stalls invo been erected
or the acommodatlon of racing stock.
They are built substantially , and with
.ho additional room thus tillbrdod every-
> ody can ba accommodated. The two
ocd barns each contain eighteen stalls ,
which have been thoroughly renovated
and whitewashed throughout. Nearly
all the buildings have received now coats
of punt. Floral hull locma up boautl-
ully In adrccs of pea green , which adds
; ratly to Its appcaranca. The barns
tavo boon pilntod rod , striped with
vblto , and ( ho chads are colored red and
Particular attention IB boirg paid to
ho track , and it is baliig worked into
plendld condition. Scrapers , rollcra
and cprlcklors arj boicg called into re- $
nleltlou , and men are kept bnny enpcr-
ntcnding their operations. On each
ildo of the track new fences arc balng
jullt. They are of pickets , painted
while , and add greatly to the appearance
of the placD. They also make it passible
or occupants oa the grand stand to BOO
OTory motion cf the horses en all parta
of the track.
Plans have been kid out for ntlll fnr-
lior improvements , and in two weeks a
Imo everything will bo In readiness for

n all the surrounding ! of the pirlr , and
hey are doing their work successfully.
Vith elegant grounds , Cno buildings and

CONVICT LABOE ,
lore About tlio Suspension ot Imuor
on the B. & M. lUiildintr , nnd
tlio CAUSO Tlicrcoi' ,
Mention waa made in these columns
yesterday ol iho cessation of labor on the
Burlington & Missouri headquarters ad
dition , because the bricklayers discov
ered ihat atone prapartd by convict labor -
bor was being put Into the building.
List evening a reporter for the BEE
mot Councilman Ballsy , cno of the con
tractors who have in charge tbo work of
construction , and from him gained fur
ther Interesting facts about the matter.
It aoras that the understanding van
when the contractor took hold of the
work that the cut stone waa to bo fur
nished by tbo company. When , there
fore , it was hauled to tbo epot , the con
tractors ordered It into the building ,
without making any particular inquiry us
to Trhero It came from , or by what firm It
had been cut. Several days ago , the
bricklayers on the building quit work ,
saying tint they hed discovered tbat the
atone had'hoon cut by convlctlabor , and
that they did not proposeto continue
work , If the atone waste ba used. Yester
day tto Burlington & Missouri company
secured norno laborer * from abroad , in
tending to put them to work upon the
building When these mon found out
how matters stood , they , too , declined to
work , beotuso they were union men , The
work , thurefoio , la at a standstill. The
union men have bson repeatedly seen by
thn contractors , but rofueo ua yet to make
any compromise. They nro to hold a
meeting to-night , in conjunction with the
Knlghtaof Labor , when acoursa of action
will ba determined upon. It is thought
by Mr. Bailey and hta partner Mr. Olaen ,
that an arrangement will bo nude w here
by the union men will go to work upon
the building and finish the contract with
the out stone furnished by the company.
Jiut what the terms of tbo truce will bo
Mr. Bailey wai nnablo last night to
utato. The B. & M. folks declare that
unless work Is returned by tbo union men
they will scour the country and import
non-union men nt any price ,
The workmen on the Lindquest build
ing were about to atop bricklaying , In
sympathy with their fellow-laborers on
the Burlington & Mle-ourl addition ,
When the contractors explained to them ,
however , that they had nothing to do
with the importation of the cut stone ,
and know nothing 01 the matter before
hand , they consented to resume work
The union mon explain their cause by
raying that they propose to do all they
cm to drive canvlct labor oat of the
stata. They think lint , through legisla .
tion has aa yet failed to abolish the ob
noxious system , tbeio are other moans of
dealing with the evil.
Street Car Disnutor.
As a Thirteenth street car was Blind /
the turntable on the Ilaacall's
park extension of tint line , the horses
attached to it b.csmo frightened and
started on a run. The driver was not en
the car at the tlmo , and two Germans ,
who wera p&uengeiB , became frightened
and jumped through tha windows , The .
hones , drawing the car , continued TO
run until Ihey reached Vinlon atroof
when In making the turn the car wo
thrown over on Its tido. Ouo of th
horses foil under the ear and wa
BO badly injured that ho had to b
killed. The other horse continued u
the otrcot , and was finally captured nn
hart. The two Germans who jnmpt
through the car windows were consider
ably bruised and shaken up. The !

An order nooi Into effect to-dsy in th
Union Pacific shops , the annoancomon
of which has produced uo Hello stir among
the workmen. The hours of labor are tc

eight ins'cad of ten , as at present from
8 o'clock in iho morning nntll noon am
from 1 o'clock In the afternoon unlit

a half day'a work will bo dnnoon Satnr
day. The change , It will bo noted , cf
fic's a reduction of almost a dsy and r
half in the J working tlmo of the mon ,
and as they are paid by the hour , a cor-
reapondlrg redaction In the wages. In
addition , a chancjo is to bo made
in the regard to the payment for
Dvcr-tlmo work. Heretofore men have
been paid for over-tlmo work n price and
a half iccelvlnpr , for instance , the price
of three hours' work for two hours' over-

Thoao change ? , which affect all de
partments , are not at all favorably re
ceived by the men. Some are Inclined
to bo rebellious , and mutter ominous
threatn about a strike , 2They ! say that
they ca-jnot aflord the reduction ; that
thcio Is enough labor on hand to keep
the entire mtjabor of chop men 1,600 in
all at work on full hours Others are
Inclined to ba more conservative. Said
pna man to a reporter who was necking
ing a general expression of opinion
on the subject : "I don'e toi but whit
wo will have to otand tha reduction with
the beat grace possible. I arn hardly In

ono will occur. There la uo doubb , how-
