After Thorn.
Considerable Knutlno
Ilnpkl Increase In tlio Num

rlcs of 1'cnrs.
or Education.
Owing to the nbacnco of both President
Clark nnd Vlco President McConncll at last
night's meeting of the board of education , O.
F. Goodman was chosen chairman. The
members present were Messrs. Coburn ,
Kelley , Millard , Morrison , Parmolco , llccs ,
Savlllc , Spalding Spore and Wchrcr.
The flrst routine matter taken up was re
ports from the secretory. Ho read an Invi
tation from teachers and scholars of Lake
school asking the members of the board to
attcnd n flag-ralslnc this afternoon at S3
o'clock. The Invitation wa accepted.
In his report Superintendent of Schools
James recommended cno additional teacher
for each of several schools as there had
boon n great Increase of pupils nt the open-
Ingot the now term. The schools that nro
In need of the extra teachers are Control ,
Pnrtnira , Lake. Long , Omaha Vlnw , Pool lie ,
and Walnut Hill. The superintendent be-
llovotl that additional schools should bo
opened In the Center building nnd Hickory.
In neither of these districts does the board
own unoccupied rooms , nnd Mr. James
stated that It would bo necessary to rent ad
ditional ones. Ho also thought that the
board would bo compelled to open an addi
tional room lu the Forest seiool and ouo at
the Franklin. Mr. James reported that the
Incronso of teachers ut the opening of the
term was not proportionate to the increase
of pupllfl. The average number of iholattor
to the teacher was somawhat larger now
than it was last term. The total number In
the schosls last 'Friday wns 0,230 , or over
1,800 moro than the membership n
year ago. The growth of the schools , ho
said , hud bfon moro rapid this your than it
has during any former period. Tlio report
and recommendations were referred to the
committee on property and buildings.
The committee on" supplies was instructed
to purchase 400 desks for the various schools.

00 copies each of First and Second readers
of thu Barnes , Swlnton and Franklin series.
David H. Ivorr , of thu Southwest Presby
terian church , nslccd permission to hold mis
sion Sunday schools in the Jackson street
school building. There was considerable
protest against granting the request , many
of the members claiming that the board had
no right to use school buildings other than for
the purpose they wcro built. The trustee *
of the A. M. E. church , of South Oinnhn ,
also asked the privilege of holding religious
services In a frame school building south of
Williams street between Fifteenth and Six
teenth , Both requests wcro grunted , not
withstanding the opposltion.of several mem
bers.Eva M. Elliott , of Iowa City , and her sis
ter , Delia Elliott , of Salina , Kan. , made ap
plications for positions as teachers in thu
"chools. They presented the usual batch of
recommendations , showing their capabilities.
The applications were referred to the com
mittee on teachers and text books.
Dr. E. T. Allen made application for the
position of examining oculist in the various
schools. Ho stated that ho would spend two
half days of each week testing the vision of
all the pupils in the different schools. His
object was two-fold. Ho wants to prepare a
reliable table of statistics , based on scientific
examinations , for the benefit of the medical
.profession. . The ether to benefit the pupils
themselves , giving words of advice and urg
ing hygonio measures whore they seem
needed. The doctor wanted no financial ro-
.muncratlon. His application was referred to
n special committee on Instruction.
Emma "M. Wells wanted a position as
teacher In Central Park school. She has
been a substitute , and her application was
.handed . to tbo superintendent of schools.
Several propositions to sell Jots for pro-
.posed school sites were .read , and referred to
iho committee on buildings ana property.
In a communication City Clerk Southard
staled that ho had TJCCU Instructed by the
council to Inform the board , In response to a
report of the committee on finance asking
for a financial statement of lines and licenses ,
that the council had declined to accede to
the request. Tie { city clerk stated , however ,
that tuo desired information could be ob
tained nt the comptroller's office upon appli
cation by the proper authorities.
The Judiciary committee , to whioh was re
ferred a resolution relating to the powers of
the board in relation to the management of
the high school grounds , raportcd that it had
consulted with Attorney Cannel and he reaffirmed -
affirmed his opinion rendered January 30 ,
1883. In his opinion the passage of tbo act
of the legislature on the execution of a dead
to the city did not in any way invalidate
the title of the school district or
change or affect its right to use
the square for school purposes. The report
was placed on file.
Bills amounting to 5310 were allowed on
recommendation of the commlttoo on claims.
Superintendent James was grunted n leave
of absence for a period of thrno weeks , after
May ! , to visit the schools of eastern cities.
The board adjourned to moot next "Monday
Eight to consider the issuance of bonds.

Jamison & Co. , and was nt work with h <
sbovol digging , and lost his Ufa by the cav

Which crushed nearly every bone In hl body.
H seomH that at the point whore the acci
dent occurred , the ground Is rather loose and
sandy , but no fears were entertained thut it
was dangerous. Consequently , when the
cave started , It fell so quickly that Todd did
not have time to rcallru his position or get
out of tbo way. As soon as the other
'workmen discovered that their com
rade had Lccn buried , they made
ovnry effort to release him. as quickly as
poftilblo. When taken out. the poor fellow
was beyond the roach of medical assistance.
Coroner Dimol was notified Immediately ,

like the Dr. Mercer's motor. Mr.
O'Hourlco wanted to know why they
nikcd for n franchise covering
every itrcot In South Omahnl And fol
lowed it up with some other questions.
Mayor Slonno objected to the forty-year
franchise , and thought that some time
should bo fixed for the commencing of work
and completion of the lino. Mr. McMillan
objected to the ordinance- because it did not
state what streets would bo occupied und
when the work would be done. Mr. Fcuno
stated that the company expects to run on

pected to build a viaduct from O street
across to the stock yards and to the boule

rind Rolled Concrete aim Oppose
OrndliiK Uonanznu.
A few days ago the board of publio works
in a body cxauilaod the 'concrete pavements
about the city , selecting pieces of work laid
in different years und for which material has
boon furnished by different companies. A
n result , the board Issued an order that the
cement from tlio companies at Utica , 111. ,
and Mankato , Minn. , aliouU not ba used on
city works , asserting that they had. found
the concrete where this comcnt had boon
used , so soft that it could be crumbled iu thu
IJf-pretjentutlvcs of these companies do-
acandod upon tlio board this morning and
urged that the order bo rescinded , making
all manner of excuses for the condition of
the work. Ono of the companies urged that
it was oo hurried b > thu contractors that the
r'Jincnt did not have time to become bydrat
ed nnd the other acknowledged that ft had
Bent iicro two carloads of poor romcnt. but
tbU your , they said , they would b so Hltuat-
od ui to bo able to do bettor work and would
prouilso the board that uono but good ma
terial should be forwarded. They don't card
for the dollars and cents Involved , but they
do not llko such iv btlgum cast
upon their ceineut. The morning session
of the board was taken up In listening to the
eloquent arguments of tbo representative ) *
of the ceuiuut comp&uUs. The
Inexorable , however , and the Utlca and
Mankato companies arc tabooed this year.
In making this test , the board found that
where cement from the Milwaukee and
Louisville companies had boon used the con
crete was as hard as Iron , and ordered that
the cement from these companies , alone ,
should bo used In publio works this year ,
but after doing so they realized that the
companies might take ndvantago of this and
ralso prices , and consequently made provis
ions for permitting the cement of other
standard companies to bo used , should It
prove necessary.
Yesterday the board was nt work upon
the paving specifications. Major Furay has
raised a question as to the legal right of the
board to tlx the prices on extras In all bids
and the matter will bo referred to the city
attorney for his decision.
Last year Hugh Murphy bid to do some
pnvlrig on Vinton street tit 52.45 n yard , and
80 cents per yard f-n1 extra grading , The
prlco for doing the paving was lower
than the others , but the prlco on
extra grading was very high. The
board , however , according to the statement
of its chairman , did not anticipate that there
would bo nny extra grading to bo done , and ,
so awarded the contract to Mr. Murphy , < As
a result , when the work was finished the
board found that It had run the city in Mr.
Muiphy's debt $9,800 for extra grading , and
the same year , under a siinlar contract , tlio
board found itself ccr.npolled to allow
another contractor between (0,000 und $7,000
Tor extra grading on Wlrt street ,
the bid having boon as high as thirty-
ilvo cents a yard. On the ground that it
wished to avoid nny such loss and complica
tions this year , the board llxcd the prices on
all contracts for extras. All the contractors
expressed themselves satlatlcd with
the prices sot. but Major Furny thought
the board should bo sura of the legality of
I In action bcfaro the now bids were made In
accordance with it , and. therefore , the mat
ter was roforrcd to the city attorney.
Kate Cnstloton'fl audience nt the Boyd last
night welcomed her , bnok with even moro
than its wonted cordiality. It almost filled
the house , whllo the n ppluuso anil laughter
which at Intervals followed the entry of the
star , shook the roof bourns.
There Is an indescribable attraction , a fas
cination almost , In the personality of Miss
Custloton. Her oyca are of the brightest ,
her smile of the Rwootost , while nil her
movements are characterized by grace it
self. She sings nnd nets most chnrmingly ,
nnd independent of her company , would
servo as a strong attraction for an evening's
"A Paper Doll" is n funny piece. It is
played by people who know how to bo funny ,
who know how to sing and net. They give
excellent support to the star , nnd contribute
to.tho success of their very successful prin
.lohnson & Slavln's minstrels opened nt the
Grand opera house last evening to'aver.v
largo and enthusiastic audience. It was not
only ItucrcBtlug from beginning to end , but
superior in diameter and artistic excellence
to any of the many blnck.fnec shows that
have been In Omaha this season. The llrst
part was a perfect picture of neatness and
presented the entire company to splendid ad
vantage. The beauty , richness und novelty
of the costumes worn elicited grout comment ,
while the snugs , stories nnd jokes kept the
nudionco busy with laughter and applause.
CarrolKTohnson and Bob Slnvin fully sus
tain their well earned reputations as end-
man , while Will Stephens , Hurry Forsomnn
and Raymond Shaw easily hold flrst pluco as
solo snipers. Tlio musical talent of this com
pany almost equals nuy of the traveling
opera organizations , nnd has proven un im
mensely profitable feature. Their afteronrt ,
a one-act burlesque ou comic oporu , entitled ,
"Tho Inland of Pokah , " created lots of mer
riment and made a pronounced bit. The
usual complement of specialty turns com
pleted the programme. They wore nil good ,
uud especially thoMcShauo brothers , a tenm
of small boys who imitate swell sports and
give juvenile exhibitions of scientific boxing.
The Union Pacific anil Northern I'aci-
ilo Conic to nil IHSUC.
At present the Northern Pacific has a
prooloin before It which is attracting the at
tention of its officers. , „
It will bo remembered that a short time
ago the Union Pacific announced that it had
put'tickcts on the market to Puget S und.
No sooner was this announcomcnt made than
the Northern Pacific oblected and followed
the objection by tiling a protest with Chair
man Leeds of the Trans-Continental asso
ciation. It maintained that the Union
Pacific had issued coupon tickets and that ,
too , over the western division of the North
ern Pacific from Portland northward to the
sound. This the Northern Pacific claimed
was nn infraction of the trans-oontinental
agreement ,
Juquiry was made nt the Union Pacific
headquarters to-day , aud it wus learned that ,
while that road is scooping in u largo volume
of the trafllo to and from that point , it'was '
in no way breaking the trans-continental
agreement. An uttnohuof the company said :
"wo have no flght with the Northern Pacific
on this mattor. The fact is thut in our effort
for coast trafllo at this point , wo ignore the
Northern Pacific. In its complaint to the
chairman of the trans-continental associa
tion , the Northern Pacific stains that we uro
soliciting ether roads to Roll tickets over our
line couponed for Puget Sound. That Is not
true. We have no coupon tickets ourselves
for that purpose. Wo merely srtv to other
roads that wo will guarantee to look after all
such tralllc turned over to us. Yes , It Is nn
Important move , and ono In whioh the pas
senger tratlfc of the Union Pacific will bo
lurtroly increased. Wo will continue to con
duct the business right along regardless of
tlio Northern P.xciflc. "
"To a man up n tree , " said another railroad
ofllcial , "it would appear that the Northern
Pacific had been duping the Union Pacific nil
along , nnd when competent men wcro put in
charge of the passenger affairs of the Union
Pacific they discovered the fraud , und in re
pairing it cut deeply Into tlio exchequer of
the Northern Pacific. "
It is thought that if the Union Pacific remains -
mains firm in its action something in the line
of rate-cutting may result as the Canadian
Pacific ns well ns the Northern Pacific is
protesting against the action of the Union
Pacific. Under the present status the Union
Pacific is on top and Us officials hero state-
that it will remain so.
A HorlouH Wreck.
A serious wreck occurred nt a point be
tween the upper and lower yards of the
Union Pacific at this place Saturday night.
A train of twenty freight cara was being
switched and at a point whore a down prado
is reached the engine was uncoupled. Tlio
cars wcro laden and bud only one uiun to
apply the brakes. At a point
near the Intersection of the
lower yards , the rapidly moving train came
in contact with another string of cars thut
was on the same track and resulted In four
cars being demolished and the breaking of
twenty drawhcuds. Two of the cara wcro
loaded with stoves which were entirely do-
mollshed. Tlio loss will foot up about 1,000.
The accident was largely duo to
the fault of the company In not having a full
crew of incn to manipulate the brakes.
Cuahlnic'H Economical CniBailc.
Saturday Superintendent Gushing , of the
motive power department of the Union Pa
cific , issued an order discontinuing all Sun
day work in the round house at its transfer ,
and at other points on the line. It has been
customary for the repairing of switch en
gines in tiso In thu transfer yards to bo done

Bnondonco of TUB Bnr.J Wlmt the uoxt cen

the public mind. Many estimates nro being

think , below the mark.
In 1TOO wo had only 0,029,014 Inhabitants In

at present from forolpn and domestic sources
may safely bo set down i t S per cent per
annum on a population of 50,155,788 , or say
1,504,073.40 souls per year.

United States of America , 00,353,931 souls.
Cut this out and see how far it will differ
from the census ro turns. Of course , no pos
itively accurate census can over be made in
this country , on account of the transitory
nnd mleratory habits of our people , as well
as the inacccssablo regions in which some of
thorn live. About 1,000,000 people in every

Congressman W. J. Connell was asked
concerning his opinion of the postofllco mat

Vftcato an alloy for the purpose of locating
the poitofilco. Ho said : ' 'So ' far us the legal
objections made by Judge Neville are Con
cerned ) t do not think thiM-o is anything In
them. In fact I know there Is nothing. The
council by provision of the charter is jjlveu
express power to vacate alleys oP streets
when publiointerosUsodmnund. In this case
it 1ms the right to vacate any alley. In this
light , the alley was vacated for the Douglas
county court house In 1S31. nnd was
then vacated upon the ndvjco of Senator
Mandorson , who was city attorney of Omaha
at the time , and who has always hold that
the authority to do this was vested In the
city council by the charter. If this Is the sum
of Judge Neville's difficulties , you may say
that the block at Eighteenth and Farnain ,
intersected by an alloy , , may easily bo re

Terry from the penitentiary at Lincoln as
witnesses. The latter arrived yesterday
afternoon In the custody of u strong guard.

tract considerable attention. Eighteen

cally robbed one another ; that "Big Frank"
perpetrated assaults on helpless UO.VB ; that
frequently ho had his attention culled to pro
hibited wrongs , but treated them indiffer
ently ; that ho conspired to retain property
taken trom persons when confined
there , and many other things , all of which
he denies.
Miller was suspended for a time , while the
committed of the board of commissioners on
the jail inado an investigation , and at Its
cloao was reinstated.

tion , ho charges that Sheriff Coburn is prejudiced
diced in Miller's favor and. therefore , should
not bo permitted to act in hlsolllulul capacity
