ns an assistant teacher. Attached to this
was a clause authorizing tlio secretary to
make contracts with the principals ,
teachers and assistants uow employed
by the board.
Mr. Blackburn objected to the motion ,
ns , ho said , ho was not prepared to vote
on such an important question
without a chance for preparation.
Mr. Copeland said he objected to the
high-handed manner in which the com-
mjttoo on teachers and text books had
been carrying on their business. The
board should bo allowed to have some
thing to say in the selection of the tcach-
eis.
Chairman Long of tlio committee said
ho did not consider it necessary for tno
committee to consult with tlio other mem
bers of the , board in regard to business
that had been referrett to thorn.
"Mr. Blackburn said it was generally
understood that the committi-o on teach
ers was a close corporation. They spring
o report on the board and ask that it bo
swallowed whole without the board hav-
ingany knowledge of its merits.
Mr , Copeland said the board had never
dy n asked a report from 'the ' superin
tendent upon the qualifications of tlio
touchers.
Mr. Long replied that the superintend
ent had refused to recommend teachers.
Superintendent James came to his feet
Ilistantor and . .said lie had never shirked
tiny duly imposed by tills boiinl. Ho had
never been asked a statement concern ng
the qualifications of tlio teachers
but ho had filed such a report
with the committee. Ho expected
it would bp destroyed so ho kept a copv
OTit. IIo said the board was employing
teai\hors \ who bhould not ho omnloyed.
Ihi had always furnished information
when asked of liini and ho hated to bo
licensed of cowardice.
"Mr. Copeland said he wanted to getaway
away from the dictation of tlio tuanhora1
committee.
Mr. Coburn explained the committee's
position at somu length.
After wrangling until 10:30 : o'clock the
motion to proceed with the election of
'tqftphors was pastponod. The motion
was afterwards reconsidered so far as re
garded the teachers in the high school ,
and the following touchers were chosen

Kx-Sctmtor Hill , of Colorado In Town.
Kx-Srnator Hill , of Colorado , arrived
last night from the west and registered
at the I'nxton. Ho was met at the depot
boTranic'Managcr Kimball , with whom
ho had n short conversation. Hn tiicn
took n bus and rode up to town.
Ho was met before leaving the depot
by a BKK reporter to whom ho said in
answer to a question that he was not on
his way to Washington , He had not had
much business there lately , and on this
trip he would conline himself to a visit
to Ivcw York and .Boston.
His stopping over at Omaha
was occasioned solely by business
neccs.iitics. The interests he represented
in the mountains , mining and others ,
naturally throw them into business rela
tions of considerable importance with
the Union 1'acillc road. These interests
required , of course , to bo attended to ,
and ho was here to attend to them. He
would remain over night and leave early
in the morning.
Tim ex-senator is looking well. Ho
bears Ids honors as one of tlio wealthiest
men of thu mountains with the ease of a
man who has yet to make
a competency. His face is full
and florid while his hair and mustache are
a steel gray. In manner , ho is a liable
and kind , yet looks like a man who meant
everything ho said and did when opposed
to the outrageous wrong inllioted by the
kings of monopoly , and especially the
emperor of kings , Jay Gould.

NKW VOIIK , Juno 7. Special Telegram to

effects ot the president's marriage as closely
as the result of the ward caucus , say Mrs.
Cleveland will bo ambitious to nuiko her lord
and master his own successor , and that In
the next two years there will bo quite a dif
ferent policy pursued at Washington from
that of the last two years. The spoilsmen
among the democrats in this vicinity are
vociferous In their declarations that Gov
ernor Hill will luuo tlio next democratic dele
gation from thi * state. S. B. Elkiiislio has
just returned from a western and south
ern trip , said In on inteivlew to-night
that his observation was that Cleveland
would bo lenomlnuted. " 1 reason this way , "
bald lie. "Tho south will bo uniform tor him
and he will tiold the south through the power
of the nntronago of Lamar and Carlnud and
Buyaru. The southern democrats are of a
character to bo goveined by pat
ronage. Cleveland has the solid
south at his back , whoso votes
they must have to succeed. Theio will be gen
eral turntiitr about , and ho will bo nominated
oven though the buntlmeut in New York
may be against film. You fiee the , south has
votes that the democrats must have , Besides ,
Cleveland will have stiongsupport In several
northern and western states. ' Ho will have
nearly all of Xew Kugland , Michigan , ! Wis
consin , Olno , possibly Missouri and some
others. These , with the south , would be
sulUclent to renouilnate Him with
out Now York. Hill has the
lead in New .York now , and would
be nominated If the convention was. to comei
otf next mouth but It Is after the president
has thrown his patronage in the balance ( hat

was an old man , with wrinkled brow and
stoop shoulders and long white hair and
beard. Ho was drcssep , in. a well- worn
suit of clothes , . buf which was neatly
brushed as though' the , owncr still took
some interest in hlsjporsprial appearance.
There was a rcstjcssnoss In his eyc.s ,

last fall , " continued the gentleman.
"where ho leads a hermit life , and
learned Ills history. It is over thirty
years since the romance of his life bcirau.
Ills father had a snmll farm a little this
side of the mountains , and Joe tilled the
soil until long after his majority. His
was th'o' old story of falling in love with
a yoUng girl , whoso father was what
would be called a magnate in that sec
tion yaars ago. The girl's friends would
* not'listen to her marrying Joe because
h'6 'was poor , and tha engagement was
pfT.
. "Joo used to ponder over the fact that
the 'marriage ' was prevented solely because , -
cause ho was poor. Hut for months ho
plodded along , doing the drudgery of the
farm work an though lie had abandoned
all thoughts of wedding the girl whom
ho loved.
"Suddenly lib mysteriously disap-

One. day. n party of hunters , who had
kh'owii him , discovered him living in a
hut upon tlio mountains , a hundred miles
from his father's farm. He was morose
and silent , refusing to say why ho had
chosen the life of a rceliihO. and merely
telling his former friends that ho was sat

'dreamily down thd mountain siilo. His
frrowISTOturnod home and narrated their
meeting with Joo. His farcical mode of
living was a subject of gossip for a cou
ple of weeks , anli then ho was ngain for
gotten.
"But Joo's romance was only half begun
gun- ' ' continued the gentleman. "Early
ono morning in th spring , two years
after ho had loft homo ; ho suddenly re
appeared , IIo was a jlillcront man. Ho
had sold' a lot of skins ho had cured , was
well dressed , und seemail to fairly beam
with . ,
happiness. / - ,
IIo had several h tvy packages in his
pockets , which liUvgn'anlM /.oalously
that curiosity walk lupusod as to what
were thulr contents. Ily wus so impatient
that ho had not beou-hcro an hour until ho
hurried oil' to tho'villlago and accosted
the proprietor wjUi.Jho announcement
that ho" had b'eoif working for tlio past
two years in a gVhl mno ho had dis

mine in tlio world. * ! If-Avas a * cavern , he

whispered to the iwofor ? that at last ho
could wed the ginl i-for , whom ho had
labor od unceasingly for two years stow
ing away gold nuggets.
"At last ho produced the mysterious
little heavy packages , which ho said were
samples of his vast wealth. Tlio little
group that had gat.horud together in tlio
otoru drew close to Joe and gazed ,
awestruck , upon the yellow bits of
mineral. The jovyolcr carefully picked
up suvc-Tul pieces , looked at them a
couple of moments , aiid then said : 'Joe ,
my friend , yon are mistaken. This is
notgpl'l. These- deceptive yellow lumps
are iron pyrites. , They ate worthless. '
"Far a full minute Joe uttered not a
word. Ho Bceinod bereft of speech.
Then ho mechanically raised his hand to
his blow , as though to collect his
thoughts. 'Am you sure it is not gold ) "
he truniulouslr asked. 'Yes,1 was tlio

was all ho said. Slowly ho loft the store ,
and as quietly passed along through the
village. His father's farm was now
reached , but he stopped only to open the
door of the homestead and , say jrood-by ,
In another hour ho was on his way baoK
to his retreat in the mountains. His dls <
appointment had been so sudden and hi ?
grief so intense that his mind seemed t < i
weaken under the great strain. Ho did
not even stop to scq tlio ono ho had lovd
and worked so hard for , but seemed to
feel that all was lost to him forever. She ,
It is said , was true to him , and died a few
years ago of a broken heart. Joe has
ever since dwelt in his hut in the moun
tains , which of late years lias become an
object of curiosity to people visiting that
section of the country. Ho has grown
lee old to eke out a subsistence , but lives
on a small income ills father loft him.
His mind lias become so weakened that
ho now imagines the cayo near his hut
contains a great mass of wealth , but that
the world has conspired to ignore him
and his imaginative tons of gold
nuggets. " _ _
The Fly-Screen Man.
Detroit Free Press : lie had a simple
fly-snrcon under his arm , and ho turned
asldo and entered a little shoo shop in
Lafayette street east.
" 1 vluis worry busy to-day , " said the
cobbler , as lie looked up.
"Y-o-s , 1 suppose so , and so are the
flies , " was the reply. ' "My friend , have
you given any thought to the momentous
query : "Shall I keep the tiles out or in

"I liaf to get dls boot done in half an

" .Exactly , and I don't propose to Inn-

"I doan' vhant some. "
"That is lo say , you propose to sit in
this shop all summer and encourage the
visits of winced insects. Do you Know
how much tune a man loses m four
months in 'striking at flies ? "
" 1 doah' figure up on him. "
"Of course jrou don't , but I have. You
will loae just two days in every

and not a fly killed. Now then - "
" 1 doan' vhant some lly-scrcmis. "
"That is , you think vou don't. How
many cubic feet of air do you
think comes through that door in four
months.
„ "Maypc six , "
"Maybe millions ! How much dust do
you suppose , accompanies that air ? "
"I vhas worry uusv. "
"Evactiy , but more than two bushels
of dust enters this shop by way of that

IIow many microbes accompany the

"That's ' all right , but for ten hours a

"Suppose you do. A fly-screen door is
portable property. There are flies and
dust and microbes in Chicago as well as
Detroit. Do you want to die of cholera ? "
"If I die it vhas all right. If I live I
haf to work all dor time. I vhas a great

"Certainly you are , out the question

The shoemaker jumped and locked the
