Ono of the laws pawed at the last session
of the legislature was that providing for
compulsory attendance of children , within
certain years nnd under certain conditions ,
nt school twelve weeks during the year. Up
to the present time little , If anything , 1ms
[ , t been said regarding this enactment. As n
consequence no attempt has been made to en
force It. The text of the bill is us follows :
An act to requite the attendance of ull per
sons Uutween the ages of eight nnd fourteen
years at some public or private Mihool or
aehools In the state of Nebraska.
Ho It enacted by 'the legislature of the
state of Nebraska :
Section 1. That It shall bo unlawful for
liny parent or guardian living In the state of
Nebraska , to neglect or refuse to cause or
compel any one person or persons who are or
may bo under their control as their children
or wards , to attend nnd comply with the
rules of some ono or moro public or private
school or schools for n term of twelve weeks
or moro during each successive your from
the time said children or wards are eight
years old , until they are fourteen years old ,
Inclusive , unless they may be pre
vented by illness , poverty , inn-
ullity or by reason of already
being proficient , from attending such public
or private schools , and
Provided. That in such case they shall bo
u excused by the board of education of the
* school district In which such children or

nished by two or moro creditable witnesses ,

Yesterday u llr.i : reporter sought sev
eral members of the board of education of
this city , for the purpose of ascertaining
what the board proposed to do with regard to
the enforcement of the law. Homo of thcso
gentlemen frankly admitted that they did
not know that such a law had boon passed.
Others thought that In the main the law was
n good one , although they had not read it.
They knew that it would reach u number of
reckless parents and guardians , who wcro
allowing their children and wards to grow up
Hev. W. A. Copeland , ono of the board
members , was the llrst met who seemed
thoroughly conversant with the provisions
of the bill. Ho unhesitatingly pronounced it
u'fnllurc. It was loosely drawn , authorised
nobody to enforce it , designated no officer or
body of men to secure evidence upon which
conviction could bo secured , und besides , in
no way specified when the twelve weeks
mentioned as the time of compulsory utten-
' dance upon school were tobe spent under the
teacher's care. "We would never put such
1 a bill into force , " said the gentleman , "ex
cept during the lust three months of
the year , because parents and
guardians might elect to send their children
nnd wards to school at that time , though up
to that time the little ones might be allowed
to roam the streets in tfpparcnt violation of
the law. The board of education has nothing
to do with the matter. Neither has any
oflleer that I know of , because
no person is mentioned In the
law as the oflleer to secure
evidence for conviction. Now In Boston ,
they have a truant oftlcer who visits the
schools daily. Ho finds in n box a list of
names of the absentees , placed there by the
principals. Thcso absentees he hunts up.
But wo Imvo no truant officers here , and , of
course , wo cannot ourselves look around for
children who nro not enabled tcf go to school ,
nnd the law docs not authorize us to employ
Superintendent James was later seen and
ho held substantially Unit the law was in
operative , and nearly upon the same ground
us above taken by Copeland. He referred to
Cleveland , O. , where a compulsory education
law was in force , but there certain ofllcers
wcro given the power to register all the
children of school ago in tlio city , anil
Investigate whether parties employing chll
ilren gave work to those who , within u year ,
had not attended school for three months ,
If within the time specilicd the child hail
complied with the law , it was given u certill-
cute to that cfTect , and was then
instilled in seeking employment. If ,
however , without this certificate cm
ployment was ghvu to a child ,
the employer was subject to a lino. As ri
consequence , no employer ran the risk ol
being lined. Without some such provision
compulsory education could not bo enforces
In this state.
Several other gontlcmen wcro spoltcn ant
their opinions were that the law was n fail

John Qulnn Wanted nt Scotln for tlic
Murder of Charles Smith.
A suspicious character who gave the name
of John Quinn , was arrested on South Tentl
btrcet yesterday morning , while endeavoring
to sell n lot of finger rings. When the ofllcci
took hold of Qulnn he threw the Jewelry intc
the street , and but one piece was recovered
On being called from the docl
. the chief seemed to recollect that Inquiries
had been made to him about ono Quinn , ant
going up to his private ofllco ho returnct
with n letter which read as follows :
SCOTIA , Neb. . Nov. 20 , ISST.-Chief o
Police , Omaha , Neb. Hear Sir : I see by tin
Omaha papers that ono John Quinn has nec'i
figuring before the police court. The uu
thoritle.s of this county are in want of a mai
named John Qulnn for the murder of om
Charles Smith on the , ' ' 7th of July last. Sait
Quinn is from twenty-two to jvcnty-clgh
years of years of ago , about live feet s > i >
Inches tall , light complexion , light hair am
mustache , and weighs somewhere in tin
neighborhood of 18. ! pounds. Ho was a la
borer on the 11. & M. raili oad , In the cmplo\ \
of Mullory , dishing & Co. tit the time o
committing the crimo. If the Omaha Join
Qulnn Is the man , wo .want him bad. In
vcstigato and communicate with either T
O. Cantwell , sheriff , or myself. Yours re
spcctfully. H , S. Si-itr.cKini ,
County Attorney for Ureuly Countv.
On the divulging ot this Information thi
court turned the prisoner over to Chto
Seavey , who took him upstairs , searched bin
and took a mlnuto description of him. Thi
tallied with tljo description given by th
Scotiu authorities , excepting this Quinn ha
no mustache , and weighs about 170 pounds
When interrogated as to his Identity , occupn
lion nnd resilience , his answers were con
fused and contradicting. Ho said ho was
railroader , that ho had been in the hospltti
all summer with n broken leg , and had novr
been in Omaha until night before last. II
was remanded to Jail to uwait further partk
ulurs f i om Scotia. Of course Quinn himscl
r-\ denies all knowledge of the crime , and s > ay
I'inphutlcully that he was never In Scotia i

on them , and many of them tire but shadows
of their formerhulves. Yesterday afternoon at

four pounds. Weak and exhausted fiomtho
frightful p.mgs of hunger , it was with tlio
greatest of difficulty that ho mounted thu

Mayor IJroatch yesterday rcitcrateil
what has already been printed in these col.
limns that ho intended to enforce the Slo
cumb law with regard to the paying down bj
saloon-keepers of il,000 when they apply for
licenses. Ho hud made up his mind on this
point irrespective of what the license
board would do In the premises. Heretofore ,
the other members of that body , Messrs ,
Heche ! and Southard , have aiifcrcd from the
mayor , holding that the ordinance of the
city warranted them in issuing a permit , 01
rather a receipt , to every applicant for li
eenso who paid down J.M ) . Shouli
thcso men continue In this manner ,
under the recent ordinance , whicl
the mayor did not think.they would , lu
would rcfnso lo sign the license. Fuithei
on tills subject , however , thu mayor did no ]
desire to speak. The mayor said ho couK
not tell to what extent the number of saloon
keepers under the now ordinance would be
reduced , but two dealers had mcl
him this morning and told hin
they were glad of the change
All saloon-keepers must therefore apply toi
their licenses at the llrst of the new jcar.atu
those who tire now in business will bo givei
n rebate of ? 277 for the part of the year foi
which they paid.which has beer cut off uudei

A GREAT MANY
Of our Customers , after seeing < the incomparable bargains we offered during the last two
weeks express astonishment at the prices. The secret is simply this. The warm weather and
late season have had a very depressing effect upon the wholesale trade. Manufacturers are
overstocked and discouraged and the same goods which a few weeks ago they intended and
expected should bring them a fair profit , they are now ready to sacrifice at almost any price.
This is the chance for the.retailer. It is merely a question of who can use the quantities. The
firm that does a large business can take advantage of such opportunities. We are in this hap
py position. Our ample resources enables us to buy in enormous quantities for cash : we sell
on same terms and the quick return of the money makes the smallest profit satisfactory. Any
one can see the force of these remarks by coming and pricing our goods.
Another lot of those fine Chinchilla Satin Lined Overcoats at $14.5O. The first lot sold so quick that during
the past few d.iys we had to disappoint many customers , who called for that coat. AVe are now pleased to say that wo have
received another supply of these same coats , only with this difierence , that the first ones were velvet piped while these open
ed now are with corded edges ; otherwise in every respect the same first class garment , the like of which was never offered
for less than twice what we ask for it , $14.50.
Another lot of Overcoats to which we call attention is a splendid Shetland , lined with double warp Italian satin
sleeve lining , silk velvet colar and corded edge. These we have in blue and Oxford colors , si/.es as to US. It is an elegant
coat for a young man , very nobby and of splendid out. "We offer it at $8.90 and guarantee the real retail value of it to bo
at least $15.
In Single Pants , we make for this week the following remarkable offers :
One lot strictly all wool , heavy winter weight , grey striped Cassimere Pants , well made at $1.50 , fully worth $3.
One lot heavy all wool Fine Cassimere Pants , in dark neat striped patterns at $2.10 , worth $4
One lot very fine silk mixed Cassimere Pants at $3.50 , worth $5.50.
One lot of elegant Worsted Goods , in choice patterns , at $3.90. These last are equal to any custom made pants and
have never been offered for leas than $6 to $7.
Remember that in our Boys' and Children's department can be found suits and overcoats at
about one half their real value and for which we challenge comparison.
In our Hat and Cap department , we offer a large assortment of fur and other winter caps , far
below the prices of others. Genuine imported Scotch caps , high crown , at 35c ; sold everywhere
at 6Qc to 75c. Good heavy knit caps , turban style , men's and boys' sizes at 30c. Jersey caps ,
silk lined , men's and boys' sizes at 4Oc , which cannot be bought elsewhere for less than 75c to $1 ,
In our Glove department , we carry the largest assortment of winter gloves and mitts and offetf
some big drives.
Good heavy knit wool mitts , men's sizes 2Oc , boys' sizes 15c.
Very heavy best fulled wool mittstit 4Oc and 45c ; sold by other dealers for 75c.
Good lamb lined kid gloves at 5Oc , which would be cheap at $1.
