associate thu date April 'A5d ns being the an

the death ( April 2J , 1G10 , ) of the poet Shake-
Nebraska claims the honor of being the
homo of the originator of Arbor Day Hon
.T. Sterling Morton therefore it is fitting
that the children of the state commemorate
the day ns one to bo given ovar to the plant
ing of trees , shrubs nnd \ incs , and the mak
ing beautiful of tlio surroundings of the
Hohool nnd home. Encourage each child to
ic.ill7o that in planting a trco lie not only
bcnellts himself , but coming generations
inny rest beneath its welcome slmdo and
bless the hand that planted it.

Let each child cliooso some ono In the field
of history , poetry , art or science whoso
memory ho will consecrate , and so perpetu
ate the nnmo of Washington , Grant , Loiran ,
Longfellow or Morse , by dedicating Ins tree
us n living monument to "those names that
were not born to die. " Thus cultivating his
patriotism and love of the beautiful and the
If in tlio village or country schools , the di
rectors or boards of education wcro present
nt the exercises on the school giounds , to ill-
icct the planting of thcso trees In a system
atic and artistic manner , it would do much
toward making the grounds attractive and
pleasing. It is suggested that tiecs bo plant
ed by classes , in clusters known ns Authors'
Gioup , Soldiers' Group , etc. , thus investing
these trees with n personality that will recall
the names and deeds of each of the men
whoso "niemoiios are of living green. " The
fjlrls cau plant rose bushes , shrubbery and

As far as possible let the child bo induced
to bceomo interested in the preservation of
whatever Is planted. Thodovcloplngof such
nn interest and the formation of the consequent
quent habit will constitute a high type of
moral education.
It will bo wise to accompany the planting
with appropriate excicises. Thcso may pleas
antly and pi olltably Include the leading or
reciting by the teacher or pupils , of seine
choice selections in poetry or probe , bcaiing
upon the beauty and value of trees. Among
the selections adapted to this put pose may bo
Hnmod the following : "Woodman , Spare
U-hat Tree , " George P. Moirls ; 'Tlio Plant-
Ingot the Apple Tree , " William C. Ho ant ;
"A Flower for the Window , " Leigh Hunt ;
"The Voice of Spring"Mis. Heinous ; "Sow

"Tho Hlrthdny of Spring , " Hoi ace Smith ;
"Tho Ube of Flowers"Maty Howitt. Many
other appropriate selections may bo found ,
n few of which with slioit quotations aio
It will bo seen , therefore , that If the rec
ommendations of tlio state superintendent
ore generally observed , that , arbor day in

Gcorga Maiming , a ranchman whoso lands
lie in the northwestern part of the state ,
reached this city in company with his wife
Sunday afternoon. They had been cast
and wcic en route homo. At the St. Paul
depot Mr. Manning went out to see rabout
thotiansfor of their luggage , leaving his
wife in charge of their valises in the waiting
room. Ho had been pone but a few moments ,
and when ho returned Mrs Manning inlet -
lot mod him that while she was engaged In
queiichiiig her thtistat the cooler somebody
hud stolen his valise. The gentleman was
much disturbed at this pleco of infonnation ,
as his valise contained $3,000 or f 1,000
uorth of valuable papcis , besides $10
or ? 00 woith of clothing nnd
other articles. Losing no time , Manning
huiiied off for u policeman , and meeting Of-
llcer Graves acquainted him with the facts in
the case. Two hours later Graves marched
into the ccntial station with Henry Uurlte ,
whom lie arrested upon Sixteenth street in
the net of selling Manning's property.

eyeri thing was all right. Hurko took the

Thoofllccrs were inclined to doubt Burko's
Btoiy and matters began to look rather
black for the young fellow
until last evening , when a fellow
was caught stealing a satchel at the U P.
depot something after the manner in which
Mr. Manning's was taken. As soon as this
fellow , who gives the name of .1 W. Llddoll ,

The city council met last night , nil mem
bers being pi cscnt. Major George , who oc
cupied his chair nt the sldo of the piesidcnt
of the council , was among the conspicuous
characters in the gathering. Ono of the
lirst matters brought up before the
council was that peitulnlng to the school
board election. A lively tilt ensued between
Mr. Mac Murphy , ono of the now members
of the school board , and sovcral mmnbors of
the city council. Mayor Savngo reviewed
the case , stating that the canvassing boaid
could not center upon any definite icsult on
account of the irregularity of the ballots us
regards the term of such candidate. Nu
merous cases were found where on one
ticket a candidate was elected for u thrco
years' term , nnd on another the sauio
for a two jcar term. This complexity , ho
stated , led the board to believe that the mat
ter could only bo adjusted in the couits.
After a series of wrangling the council de
cided to refer the count to a now board , to bo
composed of members of the new council.
At thu conclusion of this Mayor Savage , in
giving place to Mayor Sloan , addressed the
meeting as follows :
"Gentlemen and Members of the Old
Council : I Intended to give you a brief outline -
line of the condition of South Omaha My
business , however , in connection with my
duties as mayor has occupied the major patt
of my time. We came licio and found this
hollow , now comprising a prospcious city ,
about the same as our Maker loft it or , I
might add. a little bit worse off , for wo
\\erolndobt. Wo liavo struggled along un
der great disadvantages und to-day wo tuin
it over into your hands as a prosperous city
a city fust becoming the leading stock mar
ket of the west and ono whore the busy
wheels of industrj- and enterprise arc con-
stnntlj- action. Hull am sorry to saj- that
there still remain certain barnacles which
have a tendency to Impede our advancement.
Wo hnvo to our credit and at our seivlco the
sum of SO.OOO to bo used in public improve
ment , when we are and was entitled to f 18,000.
Hut in conclusion I will say that whatever
has passed from our hands in the line of
public improvement has been in good faith.
And while in ofllco any mistake
that I might hnvo made came through
ignorance and not from my knowledge
to the control j' . If I have made enemies
through the execution of my duties I ask
forgiveness. Thanking you for the many
favors I have icceivcd and for past cour
tesies shown me , I turn over my olllce to inv
successor w ith the kindest feelings toward
nil. "
The next movement taken was to swear in
the now members of the council and they
wcro swoin in as follows : Aldeimcn Toe-
sober and Smith escorting Aldci men elect
Yetler and Fcrlno ; Aldeimcn Uafferty and
Garj'cscoiting Alderman McMillan ; Alder
men Geary and Glasgow-escorting Smith and

escorting Alderman O'Kourke. Aldeimcn
Glasgow and Geurj' were then appointed to
escort City Cleik Hector bofoie the major ,
who propounded tlio oath of oftlce In a
similar manner Aldeimon Glasgow
and Geary cscoited City Ticas-
urcr Geary , who nlso took the
olUehil oath. Following this was the appoint
ment of the cntiro council as a committee to
escort Mayor Sloan to the chair.
In tinning over tlio olllce , Mayor Savage
made a few brief remarks to his successor ,
Mayor Sloan , who , in turn , madoabiiof
reply , stating that ho was thankful for the
nonois confeirud upon him nnd that while in
olllce ho would endeavoi to disclmgu the du
ties incumbent upon him with fairness to all
and partiality to none.
Tlio following of the new members then
( lied their bonds with the citj' cleik and weio
approved by the mayor D. P Hayliss , with
.1 Lovj' , William Stewart and James A Sil

pointed a committee of tineo to investigate
tlio books and condition of the munieipil
Judge , city treasurer and citj' clerk , the same
to report thu result ut the next meeting of
the council.
Alderman Smith then introduced the fol
lowing resolution , which was unanimously
passed :
Whereas , Oa the 3rd day of April , 18S3 ,

establishment and , being in citizens dress
his presence aroused no suspicion. The man
asked to ECO some tovolvers , and after some
dickering purchased ono ana the party left
the stoic. The oftlcor followed and overtak
lug the man asked him who ho was and lila
bualcoss. Ho said bis. uuiuo was Klchan
Johnson nnd that ho wns n former. Ward
then Inquired what ho hnd bought the re
volver for and ho replied that ho was going
to move to o ranch upoti the northwest bor
der , and ho thought It would bo n handy

wns not wholly satisfied , but ( bluing the tn.n

On Friday night last , as was detailed In
thcso Voluumns a fdespcruto attempt was
made to murder J nines' Milton Ivor 119 nt the
brickyard south of the Cltv by his soti-in law
Hilly Woods Officer Ward was ono of the
detectives detailed to look the matter tip ,
after the flight of Woods , but as is already
known nothing was ddrclopcd that tended to
throw additional light upon the murderous
assault mndo upon Kerns. Sunday after
noon , however , the detective obtained information
mation that Woods had returned to his homo
on South Thirteenth street , and thither ho
proceeded to nrrcst him.
Heachlng the dwelling ho was admitted ,
and found , as lie supjwscd Woods engaged in
a pleasant tete-tcte with his wife , but was
much surprised to see in him the man Hlcli-
nrd Johnson , who ho had interrogated on
the picvious Wednesday In retrnrd to the re
volver ho had seen him purchase at the Tenth
street Junk shop.
Ward immediately placed his man under
nrrcst nt the same time asking him if ho
was not Woods Ho replied that ho was not ,
that his name was Ulclmrd Davis and tlmt
ho was a friend of the family The oftlcer
then related the Tenth street incident and
asked him whv at that time he gave'tho name
of Johnson. To this Davis did notseo piopor
to replj" . butoccupicd his time In protesting
ngalnst his arrest Ho wns very "foxy , " but
not "foxy" enough , and thinking that ho
reallj1 had the would-bo muidcrer of old mnn
KOI ns "dead to rights , " the officer put the
biacclots upon him and rang
up the patrol wagon. Upon
its nrrlxal , being convinced that
Mrs Woods was accessory to the crime , the
oftlccr placed her under arrest also and the
-twain was hurriedly driven to the station
house. Here Davis was specdilv identified ,
and Detective Ward's astonishment was un
limited when ho was Informed that ho was
not Woods at all , but Davis in rcalltj' . How
ever , Officer Ward hud done a good piece of
work , ami was fully satisfied , for It turns
out that Mr. Davis is a very conspicuous fig
ure in this whole bloody and muddled affair.
lie wasaiiaigncdbefoio Judge Uerka yester
day moining on the clmreo of shooting with in
tent to kill , and pleading not guilty , usUcd
for an immediate heating. This , however ,
was denied him , on the grounds ol nn accu
mulation of business upon the hands of the
county attorney , and the extremely piccarl-
oils condition in which ICerns was rcpoited
to bo at the hospital ycsterdaj' . In the
event of his death , which Is In nowise nil-
piobablc , the charge against Davis will bo
bo changed to that of murder. In consequence
quence of this status of things the court de
terred the piolluimiuy hearing until Wed
nesday morning next , and remanded
Davis to Jail without bail. Mis. Woods was
nlso placed in confinement in default of $300
as a witness bond.
It nil looks vcrj' much now as If some high
ly sensational particulars will bo brought to
