The Idea of holding a special coundlll meet
ing this week to transact the business lefi
over by reason of. the early adjournmeni
Tuesday night has been abandoned tnd un
less BO ins new occasion should arise th <
council will not bo called together until tin
next regular meeting. The most Importer
matter that Is scheduled to be acted on nex
Tuesday night Is the opening of the bids to :
electric lighting , as provided by the rejdver
tlsemcnt which was ordered some time ago.
Since the resolution Instructing th ? comp
trailer to advertise for bids was passed tlu
Idea has occurred to one or two of the tnombeti
of the council that It would bo a very astuti
scheme to postpone action on the bids untl
after election. According to reliable an
thorlty this schcmo Is being Induitrlousl ;
Incubated In the cranium of Councllmai
Parker and will bo sprung at tht propc :
time , providing he can acquire the necessar ;
support to carry It through.
It Is stated in favor of the proposltloi
that the prospective action of the counct
on the bids may be productive of more o :
less criticism which would cut a coed ilea
of flcuro before election , but wouldl not b
so objectionable after the danger period hai
been passed. It is understood that the post
poncment will be effected by a ref ronce o
the bids to a committee that can be rellei
ii | Hitc.iclay d report until It Is thepleasnn
of the combine to consider them.
On the other hand , some members asscr
that It will bo Impossible for Parker t
carry out his Intentions and that they wll
Insist that the bids shall be repotted bacl
to the council at the earliest posilblc mo
inent. The members who are not In the com
blno are determined that the otheri shall gen
on record before election and claim that thel
opponents will scarcely dare to to openl ;
dodco the Issue.

Henry Williams , the ninn who was shot
In the ankle early Thursday morning , Is
still confined In one of the hospital cells at
the city jail. He la suffering Intense pain
and sleeps only -when under the Influence of
opiates. Last night a Dee reporter visited
\Vllllanis In his cell anil asked him for a
plain statement of the case. He said :
"I gensrally meet Mrs. Powers , the cook
at Pabst headquarters , twice a week and
walk home with her. She Is my promised
t\lfe. Wednesday night I went down to the
icadquartcrs as usual to meet hsr. She was
late In coming out , BO I waited. Two or
hrcc times I went Inside the place to get
n glass of beer. Finally I saw Mrs. Towers
come out , accompanied by a tall , heavy set
man. I do not know who he was , as I am
not acquainted with any of the pro
prietors or male help. They walked
up the street as far as Fourteenth
anil Hartley streets , Then I stepped up
and said , 'I object. ' The man left at once
und Mrs. Powers said , 'I will go home alone.1
Then I skipped over to Seventeenth street
between Harney and St. Mary's avenue and
waited behind a telegraph polo tor Mrs. Pow
ers , t expected that she would meet me anil
explain her conduct , llefore she came the
police stirred mo up and I ran. When the
policeman fired I did not stop , but kept on
running. A couple more shots were fired
and I was hit In the ankle , but 1 kept or
running till I fell. When Drummy and
Hcelln came up one of them hit me over the
icad with his revolver and here Is the lump. '
Williams exhibited the mark on his heail
and then said that was all the statement lie
had to make. When asked explicitly aboul
mnn wl.o WHS with Mrs. Powers Wll'
llnmi aimln bald that ho did not know whc
It was.
In his official report to Acting Captain
Ormshy Officer Drummy fcatd that when he
was called by Kortlang at Fourteenth and
Harney streets , John Schrandt , one of the
partners at Pabst's , and a woman were with
him. The woman went her way and he
went up the hill with Kortlang. Last nlghl
Drummy stated positively that he nevei
nade any such statement. When Julius
Kortlnng was telling his story to Ormsby
at the police station Ormsby asked him
who was with him at the time and Kort
lang said Mrs. Powers and his partner ,
Sehrandt. Captain Ormsby was taking down
Kortlong's statement at liie tmp ! , and made
a memorandum of thtt just the same as
ho did of the rest of the story.
Mr. Kartlang lest night denied that he
was with Mrs. Powers at the time when he
left the store or when he called Ofllcei
Drummy. He said that his partner was
with her.
Ofllcer Drummy In describing the shooting
soon after it occurred remarked that Wil
liams was running when he fired , and he
II red because he thought Williams had t
revolver. Drummy even says that Williams
threatened to shoot him , but last evening
the prisoner declared that he did not do sc
and that he did not have a revolver. Nc
revolver was found on him when he was
l.ltcljr n n Trout.

"Last Days of romiirll" Increasing in Popu
larity liy Itft MorlU.
Ten thousand people witnessed the "Lasl
Days of Pompeii" last night at Courtlanci
Reach , and went home perfectly satisfied thai
the day of merry making , In which the majoi
portion of tno Immense crowd participated
had not been without some compensation
Never has such a crowd been seen on loca
pleasure grounds , and the amphitheater ai
an early hour was a black mass of color
contrasting splendidly with the varlegatct
colors of the costumes as seen In the picture :
of Pompellan life presented in the spcctaculai
story of the days when Vesuvius became thi
spouse of the Bay of Naples.
Thousands of persons have asked since thi
Initial performance of Tuesday night how al
the firing of the Immenss rockets , bombs am
other pyrotechnic effects was done. The not
ural answer to such a query is , of course
'by electricity , " but that stops far short o
an explanation of the mysteries that an
concealed behind the burning mountain.
The electrical system Is composed of t
number of circuits sixteen In all. Thi
pieces that are to bo fired at the same tlmi
are connected , and the one touch of the keyi
sets all ablaze. Those which arc Indcpenden
have Independent wires , but all of the cir
cults connect with the keyboard , which 1 ;
situated bihlnd the temple of Isis , befori
which is the altar , where the last act o
the drama occurs , as the eruption of thi
mountain begins.
A cell battery Is used In firing. It Is i
square box containing cells similar to thosi
on a dynamo , and on top Is a lever b ;
means of which the coils arc mad ; to rovolv
and thus the electricity is generated.
Pyrotechnist Jim Cunllfe and Charles Cor
delta were standing at the board last nigh
when the procession of priests marched dowi
the marble steps of the temple.
"Now watch the altar , " Mr. Cunllfe said
"and you will see how the lire. Is started. '
As ho spoke he moved tlifi switch to one o
the knobs and quickly i allied the lever of til
battery. Instantly a vivid flame shot up fron
thu altar , producing a weird effect upon th
solemn scene.
"Now look out for Vesuvius , " he said
moment later. The switch was swung t
another knob , the lever given another move
mcnt , and the ominous red ( Ire began t
! o\v on the mountain top. Mr. Cunllfo the
had time to remove his Roman toga , do
his fireman's suit and quaff some water t
brf pp him for his struggle with nature *
forces. By this time Colonel Arbaces an
Mr. Qlaucus arc * engaged In their B\vor
combat , and old Vesuvius gets an electrl
shock which most effectually 'awakens hlr
from his reverie , and , as though makln
up for long-lost time , 1m belches forth
flood of flames , smoke and hissing , craclf
ling fire serpents.
A few seconds after the eruption hits com
menced the burning lava has flowed dow
the mountain sides , and while the cart
continues to quake , buildings and palace
must bo leveled. Again and again the ke
board Is manipulated , each time In anothe
part of the painted city ; destroying flame
shoot up , accompanied by the most deafer
Ing explosions. The buildings begin to fa
In every direction. Mountains toppled eve
und the walls of the city began to crumbli
It la a thrilling and realistic eight \vhe
viewed from the front , but back amid tli
falling buildings It Is wildly exciting. Th
timbers of which the buildings arc mad

from the roofs tumble about regardless i
who may be In the way. The Sime ! : I

Wednesday night after Ihe state conven
tion adjourned a couple of delegates
wearing convonllon badges could be seen
wending Ihelr way down Nlnlh slreet In
side the proscribed dlslrlct , with three
married women who have heretofore claimed
respectablllly. The quintet were out
for a time , and were visiting the different
houses of disrepute , drinking beer and
having a good time generally. In
their wanderings the parly slopped In
Bertie Mann's place , and an officer who
happened to go Into the house on business
placed the women under arresl as Inmalej
of a house of prostitution , but the men es
The women were taken to the city jail ,
and the men huslled around lo get them
out on ball , for fear their racket would be
given away and a scandal created. En
gaging a hack the men wenl lo Clerk of
the Police Court Michaels and deposited
$37.50 for the appearance of the women In
court yesterday , but when the cases were
called no one appeared and the money was
declared forfeited. The men carefully con
cealed their Identity , but one of them dropped
a remark which would Indicate that they
lived In the vicinity of Lincoln , and having
met these three giddy females , who live on
South Sixteenth slreet with alleged hus
bands , Ihey slarled out for a gay old time.
The men are said to have come to Omaha
as delegates lo Ihe slale convention , and are
said to bo engaged In business In Lancaster
county. None of the police knew them , and
they managed to keep their names out of the
affair. The women gave the names of Jen
nie White , Miss Moore and Mrs. R. D. Mann.
