couple went to Milwaukee Monday find put
up at the Planklnton house us man and \\lfo.
After breakfast they took a carrlaeo and
scoured the city tor n minister to marry
them , but failed to find a preacher to whom
the oxtrcmo youth of the girl did not look
suspicious. After approaching six ministers ,
and In every Instance being turned away , the
couple departed Tuesday morning after occu-
pylne qitaiters In the Planklnton house Mon
day night. Where they went or by whom
they wore married has not transpired , but It
Is understood to-night that they nro mar

All in nil it Is a pretty social IIICSH , and dudes

yesterday afternoon. Superintendent
James , Prof. Lewis , Mrs. Mclntyre and
Members Livcscy and Long and Secre
tary Conoyer wcro present. The com
mittee was getting ready for work when
the discovery was made that several
"ubiquitous reporters , " as Mr. Davis
would say , bad blown in , and were ap
parently just as ready as the committee
lo commence proceedings. Secretary
Conoyer welcomed * the scribes and
wanted the court opened. AVhile he was
practicing up on the reading of the affi
davits with which he was going to sup
port his side of the case , the members of
the committee yielded to outside in-
llucncea and decided that the loportors
should bo tired. The marching order
was given , but Mr. Conoyer protested.
He asserted that ho had performed no
act in his career as u member
of tlio board that was not open
to the public , ahd ho wanted
the investigation conducted in the pres
ence of newspaper scorpions. The
plan was opposed , however. There wcro
several young laiy pupils of the high
school on hand , and Mr. Conoycr wanted
to know by what authority they were
present. It developed , that Air. Copeland
had sent for the young ladies. Mr.
Conoyor objected on the ground that Mr.
Copoland. as a judge of llic testimony ,
had no authority to invite anyone.
"JJnt you wanted the reporters , did yon
not , Mr. Conoyer ? " asked Mrs. Molnlyrc
by way of justification of Mr. Copolaml's
k > Jt was filially decided that the reporters
ought not hear the testimony , and to
carry out their purpose the committee
iidjoiirucd to the superintendent's room ,
where the investigation was held. Mr.
Long retired with the committee. Inside
the superintendent's room Mr. Conoyer
wanted to know what business Mr. Long
hud in the room , and finally moved that
ho bo asked lo retire. It was stated , however -
over , that Mr. Long was an interested
party , as a witness , and Mr , Conoyor
suH'ercd him to remain , and the ex
amination was commenced. Hero Mr.
Conovor made another kick and asked
that the witnesses bo sworn. This was
decided not necessary and Mr. Conoycr
subsided in disgust. The investigation
was then made with the result that bus
been precieted in these columns. It was
shown that for a number of years u reference -
oronco book , known as "Qiiano's Anat
omy , " has boon kept in the high school
library and used by tlio leacher of the
sciences. Tins wine-colored volume con
tains a number of illustrations showing
the different purls of the liunum body ,
and is not considered a proper book to bo
found in the hands of the smaller cliil-
ilron of the school , although its use is es
sential for tlio proper instruction of tlio
science class. I'rof. Lewis stated that
children should not bo allowed to use the
book. It was also .shown that the library
at the high school is not pro-
vidcd with Jocks and that pu
pils are accustomed to iiso it
ut their pleasure. The committee will
report to the board that the library
should bo kept locked , ami that books
should not bo taken 'trom ' it by pupils
without the permission of tlio lonelier in
ciiargo. If any reference- made in llio
report to Mrs. Maltjjtyro's trouble over
tlio matter it will bo that she is not to bo
blamed because sofiid pupil got llio book
tram llio unlocked library , and that Sec
retary t'onoyer did no wrong pending
word that llio the bpqlc should bo kept in
the teacher's desk , i
Secretary Cono.vr is wratliy over thu
action ot the committee. Ho denounces
tlio investigation a-snu one-sided farce ,
and will luuc something to oiler on the
matter later on.

to Porlor's ClmrKON.
General Manager Callaway , of tiio
Union Pacillo , was interviewed yesterday
with reference to the charges made by H.
II. Porter in the Chicago Tribune against
the Union Pacific management and tlio
Colorado pool. In answering the charges
in detail Mr. Callaway said that there
were no steel rail works at Denver.there.
fore the statement that the Union Paeitic
olllcers were interested in a steel rail null
in that city required no refutation. The
Colorado Cotil and Iron company have a
mill locattxl at Pueblo in Colorado , upon
the line ol the Atchison , Topeka & Santa
Vo railroad. Ihis mill has been closed
for years on account of its inability to
compete with eastern manufacturers.
The steel rail combination had , however ,
forced the price of steel up nearly $13
per ton within the past year , and during
the last fo\v months the Pueblo works
had thus been enabled to open
up nnd roll n small quantity of
rail in competition with pastern makers.
Tlio rate ciren llio Colorado Midland on
stool rails from the Missouri river to Col
orado Springs was sixty cents a hundred
pounds a rate which Air. Callaway con
sidered not unreasonable in view of the
long haul through n sparsely settled
country where tralllc was exceedingly
light. This rate had been paid by the
Denver & Kio Gramlo railway for years
nnd was satisfactory to that company.
Ho saw no reason why the rolling mills
should not meet the comnetition of the
the Pueblo mill out of their largo profits
instead of expecting the railroads to
close thalconcorn up by a reduction of
rates which were now not unreasonable.
The rate on fctoel rails to Colorado was
formerly S1.20 per Ion , Ith.id been re-
puccd one-half , and thus thn total trans
portation charge from llio Missouri river
to Colorado Springs now represented just
the Increased price of the the stool rail
over that charged a year ago. The ani
mus of tins attack , made upon the cvo of
tiio discussion by congress of tlio exten
sion bill , and apparently in the interest of
Chicago railroads which nro being extended -
tended into the Union Pacific territory
and thus crippling It in every direction is
"Tho Are Heautlful ,
and much larger than in other Addi
tions , " is the usual verdict regarding the

The fifty mile race that will take place
at the exposition building to-night be
tween Prince and Dinglcy promises to bean
an exceedingly interesting contest. Hoth
men are in excellent shapo. Dingley
don't look like the same man who took
second 11101105in the great six-day race
hero in December , so greatly has ho im
proved. Ho lias beaten Shock fairly and
badly , and is now ambitious , although a
comparatively now rider , lo defeat Prince ,
anil will use every oll'ort to do it. Prince
himself admits that Dinglcy is the only
wheelman in the country that ho is afraid
of , and oilers to back him against Kck ,
Morgan. Woodsido , or any ether wheel
man. He can't afford to do anything but
his best , however , and the race will bo
the speediest ever witnessed here.
Hullock is in training for tiie handicap
race which will run at the exposition
building next Friday evening , in wliicli
ho is entered with Prince and Dingloy.
IJullock is still holding his car to tlio

In the attempt to swim the Niagara whirl
pool rapids is no more reckless or danger
ous than to triltcvith disease which each
tiny secures a stronger hold nnd hastens
the end of life. ThU is specially true ot
rheumatism , nciunlaia , sciatica and ncr-
VOIH headache , which though perhaps
slight nt first nrc extremely dangerous , anil
readily secure a firmer grip until at Ia l
the ng'ony is unendurable and sudden death
These diseases can be cured by the use
of Athlophoros which , in connection with
Atlilophoros Pills , never fnili when prop
erly used. Read the following from those
"who have tested It :
