on the second page.
'I ho mayor stated that ho had been
called upon to luhlrcns the assemblage
in Ids capacity as the city executive and also
nB a member of tbo order. Ho referred
briefly to the fact that this is the Ilrst session
of tti grand lodge which bus been hold In
this city and cnuincratcd the innny attractions
which would be prevented to the members for
their entertainmentthe miles of paved street *
the numerous manufacturing Institutions
nnd the largo building * in the city.
' 1 Im mayor also called thu attention of the

ing lit the city. He then welcomed the grand

welcome.
After tuo applause had subsided , Grand
Chancellor W. H , Love , of Lincoln , uuulo an
eloquent , response.
"I thank you for the kindly expression
just made , and yet it required no net or
words upon your part to say that wo ivoro
welcome , for from the Ilrst time wo entered
the gates of your beautiful city , wo have
been made comfortable and happy , and led
to Imliavo wo were welcome.
"I hope nnd trust the notions of this grand
lodge will bo such that you may
never have causa to regret our
having assembled In your uihlat , or sorry
that you bade us thus welcome. May we bo
a blessing to you nnd you to U3. May thu

P.vthlauUm friendship , charity and benevo
lence have been planted , watered , nnd have
blossomed with tbo growth and thu fruitage ,
which nro but legitimate results of honest
cmlcavoiHUpon which God has placed his
bennd lotion.
"I wish to return to you and ihrrmgh you

Following the remark * of the grand chan
cellor , Dr. Patten Invited tlio grand ledge to
Uiko part in the rklo whiih had been pro
vided for their entertainment in the after
noon.
The lodge then went into close ses ou and
nclmmlHtorc'd ttio grand lodge degree to the
new representatives , after which un adjourn
ment was taken until this moraine ; lit 11
o'clock.
Owing to the late hour nt wliicli on ad
journment was taucn , the delegates did not
assemble in readiness for ttie drive until
about half-past U o'clock.
At Unit tune the entire grand ledge nnd n
number of ladles were scaled lu about forty-
llvo carriages and started over the route as
announced in Monday's Hii : . The trip was
a revelation to the pntirt ) party , inunr of
whom had never visited the district througti
wuich the carriages passed. Hxprcssiuns of
delight and surprise were heard on every
oide , and n jollier crowd never graced Omaha
with their presence ,
About 5 o'clock the party drew up at Tun
13m : und Now York Life buildings , which
were inspected thoroughly. Jt was the
unanimous opinion thntitiis was n most lilt ing
ending to a most enjoyable afternoon H enter
tainment , .
The following ladies nro in the city , nc-
couipunying some of the delegates to the
grand lodge :
Mrs. It. O'Neill nnd Mrs. H. E. Chnpol , of
Lincoln ; Mr.s. J. H. Rogers , Aurora ; Mrs.
Jos. Ounkin , of Havennu ; Mrs. L. A. Hrowcr ,
of Caudron ; Mrs. H. H. Baldwin and Mrs.
Grove Haldwin , of lOllchorn.
Dining tlio eveiiinir the doleg.ites were left
to amuse themselves , which they did in
various ways. Most of them spent the even
ing at the various places of amusement ,
while others , who tire ot a practical turn of
mind , bul.l a secret caucus in one of the
loading hotel" , ami llxed up a shite for the
coming election of grand loilgo olllccru. The
ofllccs over which there will bo the hottest
fight are those of grand chancellor com
mander unu of representative to Itiesupremo
lodge. There are two suprcuio representa
tives from this state , who arc elected for two
yearu each Last year Omaha hau both
representatives , 0110 of whom holds over.
'Iho terra of the other has expired and
Omaha wants to name his successor , but
Lincoln enters a strong objection. The
oftlco of grand chancellor was held by n Lin
coln man lust year , and there will boa spirited
contest over the election of his successor.

All the county commissioners wore present
at the special mcctitie yesterday afternoon.
County Treasurer Holla submitted n 10-
port of miscellaneous feus collected In his of-
flco during the ( juurtor ending September ! 10 ,
18V. > , amounting to WUM15.
A comtnunlc ition from Architect My
ers nddresseil to Superintondonl Coots ,
recommended that the sewage of
the county huspitnl bo conducted into
large cess uools. which shall bu ( lushed ut
intervals and led inio the creek. The com
munication was * placed on fllo.
The committee on finance submitted ale-
port from Auditor Evans on the bill of thu
Democi at for printing tin ) tax list. There-
port recommended that . " > 15. 11 bo allowed us
the full amount at" the hill. The number of
descriptions was reduced from the number
in the bill rendered , an d the rate wns nl " } {
nnd 55f for the three insertions.
O'Kcpffi ? demanded if any of the members
of the llnanco committee knew last Saturday
that the bill was wrong , and asked whv they
bad made no protest whoa the bill was pre
sented , He was very much excited und
talked vcri hard ut Anderson.
Anderson responded as chairman of the
committee on finance. Hu said tlio bill had
not been referred to the committee until
after the mcetim ; on Saturday , and they hud
no knowledge of it. When the bill came up
ho wont upstairs to see if the bill was cor
rect , nnd wbllo he was gone thu bill was paid
in part.
O'Koeffo retorted ttiat Anderson should
bavo stopped tlio payment of tno warrant if
ho knew It was wrong.
Anderson said tlio majority of the board
woio doinir the business and be did not care
to eel into unv argument about it.
O'Keoffo said excitedly that ho didn't
know anything ahdut it until after tue meet
ing last Saturduv , but If hu had known it hu
would have protested against it.
Turner arose to explain his position. Ho
Haiil he had u suspicion Saturday that the
bill was not riuht and studied over the matter -
tor , but thought the amount of $700 was cov
ered by the correct amount of the bill and
the bill for road advertising. Ho stated
that If the ayes and nays had been callou ho
would hnvo voted nralnst it , but us two
members had voted for It ho let it go. 116
tried to made it appear that the $700 was al
lowed OH any account Vaughn may have
with the county , aiul not on the tax list bill
alone , notwithstanding the fact that the $700
was paid out of the general fund , whllo the
bills tor the other work come out of other
funds.
The report of the llnanco committed was
Dually adopted.
OB motion of O'Kooffo thn voting place of
Irvinglon Place was located nt Gcorgo L ,
lleilman'H , In the center of the district.
After flxini ! tbu polling places for thu com
ing election the board adjourned.

If I go to the pen for It , I'll put un end to
you. ' At the stum time sno drew her re
volver nnd raised It to llro. I Jumped back
und slammed the door shut between us. That
is the whole story. "
