It was too cold for ball playing or for con
fort yesterday afternoon. The ngurcgntlo
of fumolcrs from Milwaukee were especial !

temperature. About ono thousand pcopU
Including moro than a hundred ladles , shh

llors' batlory , against Willis and Naglo fo
the homo leant Clark didn't pitch any belle
than Grlmths did on Tuesday , but ho fui
rushed moro amusement for the spectator
by his baby blufTs at Umplro Kelly's judt
niont on balls und ntrikes. Ho was ably a <
nlsteii In his beefing by Hcrr and Iho anted
luvlan Ezra Sutton. But kicking didn' '
count , aud tlio Brewers suffered Iholr sccon
The Onmhas were blanked In Iho firs
Inning. For Milwaukee , Poormun was hi
by the boll , stole second and third , but wa
caught ut home. Morrlssoy got u base 01
balls , went to second on Alberts out al firs
by Cleveland , and second on llerr's hit. Mt
Vey was thrown"out at llrst by Willis.
Then luck cumo to Iho aid ot Iho O malms
Walsh popped up a fly which McVoy dropped
nnd Ihrow wild to Hcrr , giving the runne
eccond , nnd Canavan brought him homo bv ,
urlvo over second. Canavan was put out n
second by the umpire's assistance. Mcssit
got four bulls , went to second on Nngle's ou
nt llrst , nnd scored on Willis'-lilt , which wa
fumbled by Clark. Strauss brought Will !
in with the third run , but was caughl steal
Ing second. After Lowe hud struck out
Sutton rapped the sphere for a two-bagger
etolo third , and scored on Clark's ' out a
llrst. Poormun How out lo Canavan , ondlnf
the second inning with a seoro of 3 lo 2 it
favor of Omaha.
In Iho third Crooks made a hit , stole second
end and third , and scored on Lowe's inuft of
Walsh's fly to loft. Coonoy went out at llrst
Cleveland was caught stealing second , uuc
Walsh followed suit.
'iho Brewers gave evidence of being allvi
for a few minutes , nnd secured two runs
tioing the score. With MoVoy out. Lowe gen
n hit to loft und scored on a two-bagger bj
the venerable Ezra , who scored alter Clarl
had fouled lo Naglo , ou Ihe throw-in of Ful
Icr's long fly lo Strauss. The enthusiasm o :
the Mllwaukees was short lived. They won
blanked in the next inning whllo S'coleo'i
Rluggcrs secured two moro runs. Willis goi
first on missed third strike aud scored or
Cleveland's two bacgor , Strauss having per
ished on nn easy ono to Morrissoy. Cleveland
was assisted out at third by the umpire
Crooks weal to first on a hot ono to Sutton
stole second nnd scored on Coonoy's lilt tc
ritfht. Walsh got n base on balls. Canavar
went out on nn easy drive to Horr.
Two scores was hardly considered lead
enough , so Messllt , in the sixth , after having
llrst base given to him on four balls , stole his
way home. Clark gave four more wide balls
to Naglo , who stole second nnd canio in on
Willis' clean hit to right for two bugs.
Strauss' safe hit sent Willis home , but the
Trlsocker was caught at second for attempt
ed larceny. There was a hole in Cleveland's
bat. Croons nnd Coonoy both made singles
to right and Walsh's drive to second scored
them. Canavan's fly to right stopped the
fun with ten runs to Omaha's credit. The
Urowers made another futile attempt to tic
the score. With Herr and MoVoy out Lowe
got'ti base on balls nnd came home on u
homer by E. Sutton , late of Boston. Clark
nnd Fuller got bases and Poorman struck
J In tlio seventh Messitt's two-bagger and
Willis' sacrifice gave the visitors ' n run ,

lo slop. All obeyed except Miss
Williams , who ran half way around ihu
truck. In looking around , at the north end
of the course , lo BOO what Iho olhor riders
were doing bho ran against Iho wall nnd was
thrown from her wheel. The start was de
layed ten minutes , but the riders Anally all
eot oft In good shape , Miss Williams leading.
She sot a rattling pace and was being closely
pushed by Oakcs , Woods and Beauty
Baldwin , when her loft foot slipped from the
| ) CdiU. The man Brown , who u attending
tier , started to her assistance , but was beaded
off by Patsy Fallou. Ho rushed upon the
track and selrcd Miss Williams' wheel by
Iho backbone , slopping it so suddenly that
she was thrown headlong upon Iho track uu-
dor her wheel and Fallen. MUs Woodswho
wa * closely following , collided with the
obstruction and was thrown from her wheel ,
Oakcs uud Baldwin luckily getting throuch
without a tumble.
Miss Wood regained her wheel and plucitlly
rantinucd the race , Oakcs having gained ono
lap ou her by the smushup. Miss Williams
less fortunate , was quite seriously bruised ,
and will not bo able to conlinuo the race.
The accident was sincerely rcgrotlod by
all Interested lu Iho conical , and was duo
entirely to the interference of a man
who knows no more about a bicycle than a

Further Discussion ol' the School

Eleven members of the board of education
were present at last night's meeting of that
body , which congregated purposely to deter
mine the amount of bonds that nro proposed
to bo issued for school sites and now school
buildings. The absentees were Messrs.
W ebcr , Spore , Folton nnd Clarke. In the
absence ot the latter , who Is president of the
board , Vice President McConuolL presided.
At a previous meeting , hold last Friday
night , the board met ns a commltlco of the
whole nnd made a report , recommending
that $300,000 bo allowed as an estimate for
the various now-ls hoolsitcs and buildings.
In this report it'wiis proposed to hold a spec
ial election May 14lor the issuuncoof the
bonds. As no dclinito action was taken an
other tneotinsr was held last night and sev
eral amendments were made to the report.
. Before the meetlrig was called to order ,
however , there wus considerable discussion
on the question of , the legality of the propo
sition of subniittincr'tho question , of issuing
the bonds at an election.
Morris Morrison Mated that as there was
a qucslion as lo thoilcgallty of such an alee-
tion , it would bo'better to get un opinion
from the board'siattorney.
C. IT. Goodman',1 with this in view , sug
gested that the bo/uvl had better adjourn. A
motion was inuile to that effect but was lost
by u vote of 5 to ; l.-'S
When the meuling convened Mr. Sholes
moved to go into a committee of the whole
for tbo consiuoiatlon of the report made last
week on the bond Vniostion.
Regarding the logftlityof elections held for
the purpose of Issuing bonds , and' in
relation to estimates of expense ? , the
following sections of the school law of 1887 ,
chapter 77 , are appended.
Section 'J5 That the board of education
shall annually , during the month of Juno , re
port to the city council an estimate of the
amount of funds required for Iho support of
the schools , for the purchase of school sites ,
the erection and furnishing of school
buildings , the payment of Interest
upon all bonds issued for school
purposes , and the creation of a
sinking fund for tlio payment of such indebt
edness , and the oily council is hereby author
ized and requlrou to levy and collect said
amount the same as other taxes. Provided ,
however , that In case the purchase of school
sites and the erection of buildings shall re
quire an expenditure exceeding f-w. > ,000 for
any ono calendar year , the duestion shall bo
submitted to a vote of the electors of the dis
trict , at the time and plucoof any cily. county
or state election ; the board of education
shall , previous to such election , designate , in
at least ono dally paiior published in the dis
trict whore such election shall bo held , the
locality of the situ or sites required , and the
cost of buildings to bo erected thereon.
Sec. 23. That the board of education may
borrow money upon the bonds which they
are hereby authorized and inipowered to is
sue , bearing a rate ot inlcrest not exceeding
( J per cent per annum , payable annually or
seml-unnually , at such place as maybe
bo mentioned upon the face of
such bonds ; which loan shall bo paid
nnd reimbursed in a period not exceeding
thirty years from the duto of said bonds ;
provided , lhat no bonds shall bo Issued , nor
question of issue be submitted to the electors
without tlio consent of two-lhlrds the mem
bers of the board of education , und bu offered
in open market and sold to the highest bid
der for not less than par value on each
dollar ; and provided further , that no
bonds shall bo issued by the
board without first submitting the proposi
tion of Issuing said bonds , at an election
called for that purnoso , or at any regular
election ; notice whereof shall bo given for
at least ten days In ono or more of Iho dally
papers published within the district , to the
qualified voters of said district , and if u
majority of the ballots polled at
such an election shall bo for
Issuing bonds , said board of education may
Issue bonds in such an amount us shall bo
named In the election notice.
Some of Iho members claimed that the two
clauses were inconsistent , but after u long
discussion the conclusion was reached that
they In no wise conflicted , and that it would
bo perfectly proper to call an election.
The report at the committee , with its
recommendations for the various sites , was
published In Saturday morning's HICK. The
llrst amendment to'lt at hint , night's meet
ing was the estimate of f-M)0 ) ) for retaining
walls und walks around the High school , the
Farnam and Leavenworlh schools , to bore-
iiuccd to $12,5UO. Cor/led.
The estimate of J7.0X ( ) for an addition to
