Ho states that such schools Mai boon tried In
other cities and had proven to bo very prac

school bo located where the pupil * from the
Long , Lakc , ICcllom , Izard and Cass schools
could ottond.
Superintendent Fltzpatrlck was granted n
leave of abscnco from February 13 to SO , to

A petition signed by about twenty citizens
Baiting for the establishment of a special
school for all pupils who hnd fallen behind in

The ilrst catyclnsm of oratory broke forth
over a resolution Introduced by Mr. Martin ,
authorizing the contractor on the Kollom
school to put In oak steps of one solid piece
Instead of. two or throe pieces gluou to

Mr. Morrison objected to the resolution.
Ho declared that the stops made of two or
throe pieces and glued together wcro bettor
than stops made of a solid piece. Ho thought
the solid plcco stops would warp with the
And then Mr. Wohror opened his throttle
Vftlvo and gave the bouru a sample of oratory
resembling the calliope solo in a circus pa
rade. The talk of Spartlcus to the gladiators
was a summer idyl us compared with Mr.
Wehrer's effort. Ho favored the glued stops
nnd declared that the recommendation favor
ing stops made of a solid piece was simply
the vaporlngs of somebody who aldn't know
the difference between an oak step ana a corn
cob pine. Tbo board enjoyed u lough over
Mr. wohror's outburst , uud tneu the discus
sion went right along.
Mr. Mcngedoht , tbo contractor , was asliod
to say n word. Ho said ho would nisko the
stops either solid or in pieces just as the
board wanted them.
The resolution authorizing solid plcco slops
was adopted.
CliiIniH Ordered I'nld.
The committee on supplies was Instructed
to take action upon the matter of furnishing
scats for the ICullom school. Tljo committee
was authorized to use all the old scats not in
use and advertise for bids upon any now
seats that might bo needed to supplement the
old ones.
The committee on claims reported salaries
and bills duo amounting to $3(5,110.00 ( which
were ordered paid.
And then the discussion drifted toward the
cessnool of the Walnut Hill school. Mr.
Morrison reported a claim for cleaning the
aforesaid cesspool , but said that the superin
tendent of buildings had told him that , the
board baa bocn paying too much for the
work , as the cesspool was not so largo as the
scavenger baa reported.
A good deal of discussion was Indulged In
over the matter , and finally the bill was re
ferred to the judiciary committee.
Mr. Elgnttor offered a resolution authoriz
ing the secretary to draw up n general state
ment of the number and character of the
buildings to bo erected this year and the
character of the work that will bo required
of the atchltocts who have been asked to bid
on the work , so tlmt they might bid intel
ligently upon the job as a whole.
The resolution was brought out by the fact
that a resolution had boon passed at a
previous mooting calling for propositions
from architects upon all the architectural
work to bo done by the board this
Mr. Elguttor sntd that tbo former resolu
tion was too vague. The architects , ho said ,
could not tell how much work the board
might require or how rapidly the plans might
bo demanded.
Mr. Martin said ho was opposed to giving
the architects the Inside track upon the
matter. There were the buildings to bo put
Up plainly stated upon the ballots which
Uotod the bonds. The architects coula cer
tainty road and they certainly ought to know
how many plans would bo needed , and thsy
ought to know by reading the cost of the
buildings something about the character of
the plans required.
Mr. Popploton spoke In a similar strain.
Ho snld the architects might bid on the
work Intelligently by reading over the ballots
used at the recent bond election and thereby
learn the number of buildings to bo erected.
Each architect Miould understand that Uo
would bo do nil the work , and to
do It In proper ttmo.
Mr. Morrison thought that no one man
could got out the work in time.
ArchltcctH , Not rimncrH.
Dr. Glbbs replied that the architects
who would bid upon this work
were not farmers ; they were men
who employed numerous assistants. The
board would not expect ono man to prepare
these plans. Ho might employ twenty monte
to get out the plans , but the man employed
by the board would bo held responsible to
the board.
Mr , Martin said that when the board made
a contract with n man to put up a building
it was not expected that the contractor
should do all the work with his own hands ,
neither should It bo expected that the archi
tect employed to furnish plans would do all
the work himself , Mr. Martin believed that
the board would save $50,000 by employing
an architect to do all the work for the year
Instead of advertising for plans for each
building and paying 3 per cent of tUo cost
prica of all the buildings for the plans.
The resolution was referred to the committee -
too on buildings and property with power to

the study of mental arithmetic In tbo schools.

Mr. Powell authorizing the superintendent
of buildings to examine tbe floors In the Kel-

Slnco the caving in of the foundations of
C. W. Gring's undertaking establishment
Sunday , rumors of a now building on the
site of the row of ono-story structures on
Farnara street between the Chamber of Commerce -
morco and Seventeenth street have been
floating around.
Mr. Sweosv was seen by a BEE reporter
yesterday afternoon nnd asked If there was
any truth In the rumors.
"Yes , " said Mr. Sweesy , "I have been
thinking of putting up a large , substantial
brick structure covering the on tire lot , 00x132
foot , and to bo six storlos high.
For some titno past 1 have
boon negotiating with the Dewey & Stone
Furnltuio company to erect the building for
thorn , As yet no definite conclusion nas
been reached on account of a difference of
opinion In the matter of rental. If the blocu
if nut up I want to lease it for a long terra of
years and this Is a bad time to enter into
long lea-ses on account of the dull times.
However , I think that an agreement will
ultimately bo reached. "
It is understood that Mr. Sweosy wants
$12,000 per year rental ana the Dewey &
Stone company only offer $10,000. Both
parties interested think that a settlement
will bo reached before long.

Vice 1'rosldent M. U. Murptiy presided at
a well attended meeting of the South Omaha
Llvo Stock exchange yesterday afternoon at
8 o'clock. It was the regular monthly mootIng -
Ing , but the large attendance was duo to the
fact that final action was to bo taken on the
proposed amendment abolUhlnv prepaid
market messages to country shippers.
The members of the exchange were pretty
evenly divided ou the question. The pack
ers , shippers , scalpers and stotlt yards rop-
sontatlvoa with ROIUO of the loading commis
sion houses were opposed to the amendment ,
whllo the majority of the commission firms
were strongly In favor of It. The same was
true nt Chicago nnd Kansas City , where n
similar rule Is on the books.
A motion was made to call tbo roll and
record each member In black and white on
the proposition , but this Idea failed to moot
approval by a vote of 24 to 31. The mooting
then proceeded to vote by ballot , each mem
ber ns his name was called placing n "for" or
"against" ballot In the box. There was con-
sldcrnblo oxeltomont throughout , but appar
ently no hard icellnc roused. The amend
ment finally carried by the close vote of 83 to
It Is a question whether tha rule can bo en
forced , but its friends say It can nnd will nnd
that it will result not only In a big saving to
commission firms , but in more evenly dis
tributed receipts nnd consequently in fewer
fluctuations In market prices ,
The amendment goes in iorco atonco and
Is as follows. Hulo D , section 13 :
Ithhnllbo doomed n violation of this rnlo
for any member of this exchange or firm of
which ho may be n mumbor or employe to prepay -

Cun Itruoicr Money T.ottt on H 3I 't.
The remarkable suit in which Thomas
O'Neil sued to recover $100 won from John
McMillan in a bet has boon finally decided
by Judge Levy. His honor declares that the
winner of the bet wins the suit and George
Parks , the stakeholder , is ordered to sur-
ronaor to O'Noil the $100 put up by Mc
Millan. "Mao" is very Indignant nt this
decision and after bis honor handed down
the aamo yesterday the remarks made by
McMillan were anything but complimentary.
Ho capped the climax by threatening that In
three months he would have Judge Levy off
the bench.
The case has attracted a great deal of at
tention In South Omaha , not only on account
of the prominence of the persons concerned
but Because of the popular query : "Can
money lost on a hot , be collected I"
In tno case under consideration McMillan
had put up $100 on a bet that bo could de
liver within a certain time a lot to a customer
of O'Neil's for $1,050. O'Neil bet that ho
coula not and the proper papers
were drawn up. McMillan lost , but
instructed tbo stakeholder not to surrender i
the $100 put up by him. O'Noil brought suit
to recover this money from Purks , the stake
holder. McMillan as iutorvonor took the
place of the nominal defendant. The defense
dwelt mainly on tbo allegation that betting
was illegal and therefore the money
could not bo collected. Judge Levy
hold that the statute prohibiting
betting mentioned only gambling institutions
and appliances , and further that as wont and
labor were necessary to secure the lot and
deliver the same that there was no gambling
or gambling appliance about it that is cov
ered by the statutes. Ho therefore gave
judgment to the winner , O'Neil ' , for the full
The greater part of the costs , those of In
tervention , wcro assessed to McMillan , the
loser of tha bot. The other costs will be
paid by O'Noil , the winner , as his honor hold
that Parks , the stakeholder , was an inno
cent party and should not bo made to suffer
any loss ,

The construction of "Hunt's chicken coon , "
as Councilman Walters torn.s it , was consid
ered at length by the city council of South
Omaha last evening. The building in ques
tion Is a woodnn shanty being erected Inside
of tbo flro limits by C. M. Hunt , ono of South
Omaha's wealthiest citizens , permission hav
ing been granted by the council ut a previous
meeting. Councilman Walters declared that
according to the promise of Mr. Hunt the
structure was to be of sheet Iron nnd was to
bavoa gravel roof ; that the building was

Walters therefore moved that the building
Inspector bo instructed to inspect the build
ing in question and see If It was being con
structed in accordance with the ordinances
governing the construction of buildings In

after considerable aobato.
A sidewalk was ordered put in on the west
side of Twenty-first street from G to J.
Mr. O'llourlie , tno temporary chairman ,
called attention to the fact that the poor
people of South Omaha were utterly ignored
by the county commissioners and declared
ttmt not a pound of coal or flour or any other
necessity had been given to the indigent of
South Omnha this winter. Ho therefore ap
pointed Messrs. Haley and Bowloy as a com
mittee to act with himself in looking after
the matter.
J. C , Norton of Norton llros. demanded of
the council that his claim of $1,745.15 for
grading against the city bo allowed so that
ho could draw interest on the money. Ho
was informed that the matter was under
consideration bv the proper committee.
Messrs. Wood , Walters and Howloy wcro

ter of a city hospital and to llnd a building
suitable for such n purpose.

ho would feel amply rnpald for his efforts.
Ho declared that advanced civilization had
onlv corno from agitation nnd predicted that
it would only cease whan Justice had boon
meted out. to all. Ho assorted that a spirit of
dissatisfaction hud led to tbo organisation of
the women's nsseniuly. They were debarred
from taking a band-in making tbo laws to
govern thorn or from having anything to say
as to their wages , which are kept down by
men at n starvatioinllguro. Ho declared that
the only way for tbe women to obtain relief
was to'organize and educate themselves.

The Union Pacific railway Is resting upon
a sleeping volcano. Already there are faint
muttorlngs of an explosion , nnd It it comes to
pass there will bo ono of Iho biggest strikes
known to railroad history.
Proceedings of the two grievance romrelt-
tees now In session hero have been guarded
from publicity with the utmost oaro , and In
terested parties on both sides nave met uuws-
pnpcr inquiries with the statement that
everything was lovely and there was no
danger ol trouble.
If that was true n now spirit has come over
affairs. The nfllcors of the two committees
laid their grievances before Assistant Gen
eral Manager Dickinson last Tuesday.
Nearly n week has elapsed , and the trainmen
have received no reply. The full committees
expected to have n conference with Mr. Dick
inson yesterday , but that gentleman had not
returned from a trip toChlcnco.
The mom bora ol the committees show some
Irritation , nnd are not as guarded as formerly
in giving expression to tholr foclings.
It appears from their statements
that tholr grievances hnvo boon nut to the
railroad company as demands , nnil they sny
with emphasu that they will Insist on their
rights. They assort earnestly , nna no doubt
honestly , that they hope there will bo no
strike , but they admit that it is possible nnd
announce with eVident confidence that they
nro prepared for such an emergency. They
speak of the Munition us a "llcht. " They
Intlmnto strongly that thu Union 1'ncllc
must nccedo to their demands nnd they de
clare that the strilto , If It comes , will slop
every wheal on the entire system.
From nil this It appears that the con
ductors and brnkomon are determined to
force their claim ] to an Issue , nnd that thov
have carefully considered both the possibility
and tbo practicability of n strike ns an alter
native. They hope for peace but are prepared -
pared for war.
Tholr demands Include ono for an increase
in wages on some divisions , and there are
some proposed changes in rules that nro
likely to bo quite ns troublesome. As ono of
the trainmen said : "Thoy may appear
trilling to the public , but they are important
to us , and wo moan business. "
T. T. Slattory , second vice grand master of
the Brotherhood of Hallway Trainmen , was
In the city again yesterday and hud another
conference with members of tbo grievance
committco ot that order.

brequins while waiting lor it. This sale is as
different from the ordinary pant sale as black
is from white. We buy no pants for it. Wo

vests have been sold , for a whole season , when
we sort them into different lots , mark a price
on them and put them on sale. At the prices
we make on them they go with a rush. VVe are
never compelled to mark them down a second
time to dispose of them. The sale this time com
prises something like two thousand p airs oi
pants , mostly from fine suits , as it is seldom we
have to break a cheap suit.
