Mr. W. A. L. Gibbon thought no wiser plan
Csuld bo provided than to double attractions

country cousins are here , give thorn iimuso-
cumin In Inruo doses.-
Mr. William I. Klcrsicml approved Mr.
Glbbon'fl sentiments. lie also suggested
that ho wns a very fastidious sortof man
who would not consider a trip through TIIK
VBK and Now York Llfa buildings ixlono
worth the time ha spent In coming to Omaha.
Mr. Louis Hclmrod said something about
cutting the wcok to three days , but tils prop
osition was not considered nt nil.
John A. Wakcflcld thought the manage-
inont wns catering -too much to the fair di
rectors. ' 'If you want to advertise nnd work
for the fair why not conic out nnd say so at

have our Merchants' week celebration u
quiet , pleasant gathering of murclmnts. "
Mr. Wnkoflold chairman . of the commit-

Unxccutivo comtnlUuo , and everyone foil bet
ter when ho caino into line after uwlulo nnd
sola ha would work as hard as anybody to
nnilte It alt u HUCCCSS.
And then there wns the ether question of
money. How to llnd out the necessary
amount , how to rniso It and what to spend it
for , were sorlous questions.
Joseph Garnoau suggested $10,000 , nud
said ho ImUn't a doubt but what $0,000 could
bo raised easily.
Mr. Wukeflold wasn't very sanguine , and
Bald ho thought hard work might raise the
Btnko to $1,000.
"Nonsense , " replied Gnrnoau , "wo can
raise $000 hero lir this mooting. "
"Put down Dewey ft Stone for $50 right
now , " Klorstoad shouted.
"We can rnlsa $500 among the packers of
South Omaha , " caino from II. H. Mcday , of
the pork-pnckintr suburb. ' 'And cveu If , ns
Mr. WaUoIlold sny , the ( air knocks KOO oft

another way. It will bo so much amusement
wo won't huvo to pay for , * '
When this discussion undcd all committees

very strongly. Plans which hnd bcon sug
gested in Tin : UKE were mentioned , and the
following suggestions were mado. First ,
thuro might bn ward organizations of horse
men , uniformed or carrying torches , who ,
well trained , could make a pretty appear
ance. A banner to bo given the best drilled
organization would ntlmulato hard work in
the direction of ofllcloucy. Or , the old plan
of getting out n number of floats might bo
adopted. It la a little more expensive than
the others , but always good. Last , a bril
liant display of lira works might bo mndo
from the tops of the Now York Life and BUB
buildings , where everyone could sco them.
Each of these motions was well received ,
but no action was taken.
After deciding to meet hereafter every
Tuesday night , the committed adopted Mr.

Non-Pnrtl i\n Members Now Ponu-
nnlo the School Honrd ,
Ever slnco the last school board election
efforts have bcon made to crcnto n division
of the members , with the avowed purpose of
breaking up the old combines nnd cliques
which have prospered for n number of years.
The now members are said to have formed
n compact looking to n thorough reorganiza
tion of the commlttOQs. Secret meetings
have been' hold , and a definite line of action
was mapped out and agreed upon. Evldonco
of this first came to the surface when Mr. C ,
F. Goodman was a wcok ago elected to tbo
presidency of the board , vlco Mr. Henry T.
Mcanwbllo the old combine were busy.
They hold meetings , endeavored to induce
Bema of the newly elected members Into
their camp , nnd oven went so far ns to offer
the tatter Inducements to strengthen the
ring which had been strongly formed.
The now men held , however , that they had
not been elected as ringslcr * , that they had
been chosen in non-partisans , nhd that as
non-partisans they proposed to act.
At the adjourned mooting Thursday night n
complete reorganization of the committees
was effected. The attempt to bring about this
chunga created a hot discussion and stubborn
resistance on the part of the old faction. The
resulthowovcrshows conclusively that a now
order of things will hereafter prevail In the
A leading member of the Iwara was
seen and questioned about the com
plexion of the now committees and the
chnngo they would bring about In the affairs
of the school board. Ho said :
"Tho rooorts published in the morning
papers don't do our sldo of the question 'Jus
tice. nnd I want It explained.
"Tho public has bcon clamoring for this
very change for a long thno. Heretofore ,
all the work nnd nil the glory luivo boon In
the hands of n few mon. Now , Just consult
that list of committees and see If auyono has
been snubbed. Each ono of the fourteen
members Is chairman of BOUIO committee
nnd each name appears somowhcra on four
committees. All this tnllc about a combine-
with democrats Is bosh. Politics cut no
figurent all. I don't know anything about
Mr. Clarkn's statement as to being asked
to depose Coburn. Teachers nnd text books
were too much for ono committee so It wns
divided , and Coburn is chairman of the lat
"Tho whole trouble Is the rlntj Is broken
and the people have what they asked for.
Tboro worn thrco kickers , Clarke , Sholes
and McCouncll. CInrko was disgruntled be
cause ho lost the presidency ; Sholes , because
he did not get the committee on buildings ,
and McConuoll , bauauso ho was taken off
the commlttoo on claims. Now , ho has had
that position for n long time nnd
when the report comes from the comp
troller's ' o 111 eo you will see that
business was done in a very slipshod manner.
An immense amount of money is passed on
by this committee and Mr. McConnell was
very looao in his methods.
"The books of the secretary nro hoxv being
chocked ui > and I am told that tnoro are or
ders and vouchers which havn never been
O K'd by any ono.
"There are ether rather serious dlscrop-
.neics which will bo reported to the council
ind board when the puoplo may judge for
.hcmselvcs . whether or not a change of com-
mittoemcn was desirable.
' . 'I consider that the pledges Implied In my
iloction on the non-partisan ticket are ro-
.eumod and hereafter two or thrco men
, von'i bo nblo to run the board. "
Mr. Kelly 1 haven't ' much to say. Some
coplo arc in the soup. The public will bo
iutistlcd , however , nnd the work is pretty
ivenly divided. Politics has no business m
ho affair at all. Mr. Sholes makes some
jhargos. Tno trouble with him is ho would
iavo given his shirt to have boon appointed
; hnlrman of the commlttoo on buildings. Ho
; old mo he wanted It. The couiblno was all
in the other side. They anticipated that the
ing was going to bo broken and they were
.round yesterday hunting votes to save It.
They didn't got them and they are hot.
Mr. Hoes Oh , I could say two or thrco
, liinirs if I wanted to , but I don't. I can't go
.utolho Coburn question. Everybody under
stands that. The object of the now move
ivm to put each member at work. Wo don't
ivant two or three men to run the board.
The new committees wo created wore
necessary. I don't see how you ara to know
ivhoro to erect a school building If thcro Is
no committee on boundaries , and Jdon'tthink '
anv man should have authority to expel u
child from school. The committee on sal
aries and discipline will remedy lhat. The
last election turned on thin very uoint , nnd
ivo have redeemed ourselves. I didn't ' notice
; ill my attention wns called to it this morn-
ng , that there were democrats on the most
mportant committees , and Itvould have
undo no difference If I hud. The other side
ilxud un their slate and wo beat them.
OiSpaulding The ventilation committee
1 consider the most Important in tbo wholu
list , and it should have experienced men.
Fclton , it is understood , is about to resign.
which will leave me on this board associated
with an Inexperienced man. On these
grounds I refused to servo.
Sheriff Coburn I was' not at the meet
ing , therefore can't ' give an opinion for
publication. It looks , however , as though
the board was bound to be dragged into a
political squabble. I have heard , for several
days , that a combination was formed to put
democratic members at. the head of all com
mittees , but knew nothing about It.
'Tho Board'H Accounts.
Comptroller Goodrich was seen in refer
ence to the reported slipshod methods of
keeping the books of the board of education ,
and in reply to n question said that It would
rcqulra upwards of ton or llftccn days to
complete the auditing , and , until that lime ,
ho could make no statement.
The conversation of the people in the oflloo ,
liowevor , implied that considerable irregu
larity was boinc discovered.
Notwithstanding the inability of the comp
troller to shed light on the subject , it has
been currant In the city for some days p.ist
that the secretary of the board of education
has been keeping his books , to say the leant ,
In an original mann r. It is alleged that ho
keeps no ledger , and that Its substitute is a
memorandum which shows entries in a style
that are far from being satlstactory to a com
petent accountant. *
It is also stated that some time ago the secretary -
rotary uudortook to keep a lodger , but aban
doned it for reasons of his own.

urements of the b'alcony , and will have
completed by to-morrow , an Itemized report
of what the balcony should cost. The board
paid $1,500 for it. Mr. Cranes' estimate will
bo about $300. Ho takes into account every
screw , bolt nnd bar at contract prices , and
says the Job , at (500 , would leave a largo

Georto C. Hagen , a wealthy boot and shoo
dealer dolug business ut Chicago and at NewCastle
Castle , Pa. , was arrested yesterday , charged
with being a fugitive from Justice.
It is another casu of an uncon
genial wife nnd a pretty typewriter.
Tbo arrest was caused ou u telegram
from the cliiof.of police of Milwaukee , stat
ing that Hagen had eloped , dosertlng his
wife nnd taking a lot of her Jewelry. Hugcn
nnd his typewriter , a handsome young irirl ,
about eighteen years of age , named Kauhcl
Vaghn , arrived in Omaha Wednes
day evening , and stopped at the
cheap lodging house on Fanmm street
where they were registered as "Mr. Adums
and wife. " They remained in tbo place until
noon yesterday , when llagen ventured out to
call upon u friend of his to secure
Identification to enable him to get
cashed a draft for $1,200 , which ho
purchased nt the Chicago National
bank. Ho was placed under arrest by lo-
tectivo Mostyn while on his wny to the bank ,
and was placed in Jail awaiting orders from
