'At the meeting of the Board of Education
h ld last night nn attempt -was made to
plunge the knife Into the salaries ot Ills"
ehool teachers ami all Janitors receiving
more than $60 per month , but this was de
feated ami In the end the school year was
shortened one month. H will close on May
25 this year. Instead of on June 25 , as In
former years.
Alone the line of retrenchment Mr. Hhoades
presented the following report :
"Your committee to wlilch was referred
the question of finance would respectfully
recommend that the school year bo closed
on May 25. 1893 , nnd tliat the salaries of
teachers , principals and Janitors bo adjusted
on that basis. Your committee would also
recommend that a cut of 10 per cent be maclo
In the salaries of all teachers In the Jllsn
echool , and a cut of 10 per cent In the nala-
rles of all Janitors receiving more than Joi1
per month. Your committee would rccom
mend that the commltttee on buildings , prop
erty and supplies be Instructed to ha\o no
material purchased , or work performed unless
the committee first receives the approval ot
the board , or unless absolutely needed In
case ol accident. "
Mr. Plerson submitted a report , which wns
In lltio with that of Mr. Rhoades , with the
execution that It spared the teachers In the
Illch school and the Janitors from the cut.
Mr. Hhoades was loaded down with figures
nnd proceeded lo show that by adopting his
report the turn ot12,000 could be saved dur
ing the school year. He Insisted that the
Plerson report saved but $10,000 , which
would not do much In wiping out the deficit.
Mr. I'kxson maintained that by the adop
tion of Ills report $35,000 , In stead of $10,011(1 ( ,
would be saved.
Mr. Ithoades maintained that In Omaha
High school teachers and Jantors , wro paid
more than In other cities.
MrHursesa Insisted that Mr. Rhoades
was In error , nnd In support of his position
read from a 1IM , showing that Omaha sal
aries wcro much lower than In other cities.
Tlio Janitors were good men and It was not
necessary to go outside to find out what
they should be paid. They were all good
men , nml If their talarles wcro cut 10 per
cent they would leave and seek employment
elsewhere. Mr. Burgess knew that the good
teachers would not stand the cut proposcJ
by Mr. Ilhoades ; they would leave , while the
poor ones would slay
Mr. Elguttcr thought that It was true Hint
High school teachers and Janitors were paid
good salaries , but he did not think that they
should be made the victims to help make up
l shortage In revenues.
The adoption of Mr. Khoades' report was
defeated by a vote of eight to four , -while the
report submitted by Mr. Plerson was adopted
by a. unanimous vote.
James H. Melkle , the attorney for the
Board of Education , reported that he had
consulted with the city authorities upon the
matter of special taxes paid by the school
district of Omaha on account of the Tentl
slrectviaduct. . The city , ho said , hod re
fused to refund the taxes , or any portion ol
the Mine. As the taxes were paid on Octo
ber 23 , 1890 , he said that the statute ot
limitations would run against their recovery
on October 23 , 1801 , The report was re
ceived and placed on file.
Some forty of the citizens , of Central part
and vicinity petitioned tor a night school U
that vicinity. In their petition they prom
Ued to pay the salary of a teacher , providing
the Hoard of Education would supply room
beat , light and books. The petition was
placed on file. The board decided that I
could not Incur the expense.
The treasurer reported $21 , US.43 of schoo
moneys , on hand on the first day ot the present
ent month.
Superintendent Marble reported that then
were 579 children attending schools outside a
their respective districts , not Including those
transferred on account ot lack of grade In
Iho schools In the districts In which thc >
There were six bids on the proposition t.
ECll the board a slto for a school -building In
Iho vicinity of Fortieth and Davenpor

to $5,600. All bids wers referred.
By resolution the superintendent of build
Incs was Instructed to report the kind am
quantity of coal ufccd each month during th
comlnc winter , making his report to th
board each month.

the old commlttoa providing for such amend

discussed. Chairman \Vlnspear , of the
Board of Public Works , said that ho was not
willing to go aft far as the resolution con
templated , but thought there wcro some de

to advantage. He cited the street sweeping

tlono < t l'roi > < i o to Shut Ilia
Jlnllronds Ont.
The democrats Inaugurated their local
campaign last evening with a procession ,
headed by the First Ileglment band , and a
roily at Washington hall. The principal
speaker ot the evening f > as ex-Governor
James E. Uoyd , democratla candidate tor
Mr. Boyd was In bad form , having arisen
from a sick bed to bo present at the meetIng -
Ing , and he spoke with evident difficulty.
The larger part of his address , wns devoted
to a discussion of tlio tariff and the silver
questions , and upon the latter ho took decid
ed Issue with the doctrine of free coinage.
Harry Miller called the meeting to order.
Before Introducing the speakers , ha said a
few things on his own account. Like his
distinguished friend In New York , lie was
a democrat , and with all the ardor and en
thusiasm of his makeup hs proposed to work
for the election of every man on the demo-
cratlc ticket , from Silas A. Holcomb down to
Churchill 1'arkcr. The republicans , lie said ,
Had nominated a man who by the best re
publican authority In Nebraska was notori
ously unfit for the position of governor. Tom
Majors , nsterled the speaker , w s the rep
resentative of u corrupt ring , and the demo
crats had decided to assist In defeating him.
He said that he would And no fault with
John McSlianc , W. A. Paxton , W. S. RIc-
Hugh and nuclld Martin , but he wanted to
tell them that there were enough populists
and enough decent , honest democrats In Nebraska -
braska to elect llolcomb.
C. J. Smyth , chairman of the meeting , was
the next soeaker. He said that In the pres
ent congressional campaign there were three
candidates , and that beyond question the
contest was between the republican and
democratic nominees. There was no hope
for the election of the populist candidate
and Mr. Smyth made an eloquent appeal to
populists to rote for Boyd instead of Dcaver.
Ho defended Doyd's attitude on the silver
question and claimed that the latter was
the friend of the while metal.
Mr. Smyth also referred to the calamity
crusade. He said that the cry raised that
Nebraska's credit would be ruined by the
elect on of the democratic candidate for gov
ernor wns false. The state of Nebraska , he
said , did not need to borrow money. It had
money In Us treasury , and It also haJ a
great deal of money not In Its treasury. He-
feirlnc to the assertion that the election of
Holcomb would drive eastern Investors away ,
ha mid that the constitution of Nebraska
prevented any legislation Impairing the ob
ligation of contracts , and neither democrats
nor populists could legislate against the
eastern Investor , even If they desired.
After being introduced as the ex-governor
of this state and the next congressman from
this district. Mr. Boyd stated that on the
advice of his physician his remarks Mould
be very brief. He held that It was the duty
of every cand date for office to declare his
position on alt of the leading Issues before
the people. Four years ng-o , he said , he had
been elected governor of Nebraska , upon an
Issue clearly defined , and upon which the
republican candidate was silent. In the
democratic convent(6n ( a bright democrat
had declared , "God hateg a coward , " and the
defeat nf the republican candidate for gov
ernor four years before proved the assertion.
Mr. Boyd took up first the recent finan
cial panic , and argued at some length
against the assertion that it had been
brought about by fear of democratic legisla
tion , The panic , he declared , was brought
about by the bankers and money loaners.
England alone , according to a statement
made by Gladstone , had $5,000,000.000 In
vested In America. At 5 per cent per an
num , America was sending back to England
$250,000.000 annually as dividends and In
terest. Naturally England had a deep In
terest In America's financial system. Con
sequently , when England saw the United
States treasury empty , the gold reserve di
minishing , a he.ivy deficit In bight and vaults
overflowing with silver , she began to with
draw her Investments. The flow of gold to
England brought on the panic , and the gold
had been driven out of the country by re
publican legislation.
Mr. Boyd discussed the tariff question nt
length , declaring himself In favor ot a tariff
for revenue only. Ho said that the repub
lican party would never advocate the rc-
ennctment of the McKlnley bill. He denied
the oft-repeated assertion that the price of
farm products went down with the price of
silver. The price of hogs today was twice
as high as It was when sliver commanded
Its highest price. The price of wheat and
other cereals was fixed by England.
Mr. Boyd declared himself In favor of the
election of United States senators by the
people and in favor ol arbitration of differ
ences between capital and labor , but did not
favor compulsory arbitration , for where com
pulsion began arbitration ceased. He WOE
In favor ot the regulation of freight rates ,
but believed that maximum rates should be
fixed by a commission rather than by the
Mr. Doyd expressed his \lews on the silver
question at some length. As long , he said ,
as Grovcr Cleveland was president there
was no hope of free coinage of silver at the
ratio of 1C to 1. Personally , he was directly
Interested In the extensive use ot silver , as
he was the owner ol nine-tenths of a silver
mine producing 3,000 ounces per week , but
ho would not favor the Injection of silver
Into the national currency to such an extent
as to endanger the credit of the nation. Ho
eald that he firmly believed that the enact
ment of the law for the free coinage ot
silver at a ratio ot 1C to 1 would drive from
J550.000.000 to $050.000,000 In gold out of the
United States and put this country on a sil
ver basis. Ho did not believe that HID pas
sage of such a law would restore prosperity
to the country , and he cited the financial con
dition of Mexico as an example.
In conclusion , Mr. Boyd stated that he
was In favor of the election of Judge Hol
comb , and asked th support of populists In
his canvass for congress. Ho had been a
resident of Nebraska for thirty-eight years.
Ho had served tlio people In many public
places , and he was perfectly willing to stand
upon the record he had made , and if elected
to congress he would endeavor to perform his
full duly.
The next speaker was \V. S. Poppleton ,
candidate tor state senator. He reviewed In
a comprehensive manner the alms and pur
poses of the democratic candidates for the leg
islature. In addition to voting for Bryan
for United Stales Herjator , they proposed In
vestigation of state finances , an Investigation
ot the- state penitentiary , and the revision
of the convict labor laws , and the- passage
of Irrigation laws which would prevent the
absorption of the state's scanty supply of
water by eastern syndicates ,
Ed Smltb , candidate for county attorney ,
was then Introduced. He said that the only
Issue In the present campaign was : \Vblch
party la presenting the best men for the
offices to bo filled this fall ? He discussed
the , tariff question , and then , alluding to the
state campaign , said that the issue was
sjuarely joined between the railroad corpora
tions and the people. There were two big
offices In sight the .governorship and , the
United States senatorshlp. The B. & M.
wanted ono ot these and the Union Pacific
was after the other. If the democrats did
their duty llolcomb would defeat Majors ,
the Ir duty llolcomb would defeat Major * ,
and TuurBton would be beaten by Bryan.
W. 8. Pelker , candidate 'lor ' state senator ,
closed the meeting with a vigorous fifteen-
minute talk , In which lie paid a tribute to
the long career of Governor Doyd as a citizen
of Nebraska ,
of ! the voters arc taking itho precaution to
resistor early.

Ian of the Ie > nocrlto ICotnln the City
When the city clerK -ordinance was passed
iy the council the republican members ex
* acted that It was scttltd that a successor to
the late city clerk wtfuld' ' bo elected nt the
: omlng election. But unless a plan that has
Inco has been Incubated by the democratic
talesmen In and out of the council proves
bortive n desperate effort will be made to
iilllfy the ordinance or at least postpone
Is approval until It Is too late to Include
.he mention of the clerkship In the election
It was stated yesterday by a democrat
* ho Is supposed to be In the scheme that
he courts would bo applied lo for nn In
unction to enjoin the mayor from signing-
he ordinance on the ground that It Is Illegal ,
he democratic councllmen and others have
jecn doing a good deal of caucusslng since
ho ordinance passed , and It Is understood
hat they have made up their minds that the
ilan la worth trying. Previously they cn-
leavorcd to convince the mayor that the or-
illnaiico was Illegal and that he could not
Ign It , but falling In this , the appeal to the
: ourts was decided on.
It Is understood that their petition for an
injunction willl be based on section 129 of
ho charter which says that "The city dork
hall be elected nt the same time as the
mayor , and shall hold his office for two years
"rom and after the first Tuesday of January
luccecdlm ; his election and until his suc-
: ossor Is elected and aiiallfled , "
This Is Interpreted to mean that a city
ilerk can only be elected at the regular city
lection , nt whloh the mayor and other city
ifflcers are elected , and that In case of a
'acancy the appointee of the mayor and
council shall hold until the two years term
las expired. A dozen of the leading lawyers
n the city have been consulted , but It Is
t claimed that they have held out much
Section 16 of the charter says that the
nayor and council shall have power to fill
iuch vacancies as may occur In the office ot
jouncllmen or other elective offices of the
: lty , and It Is on the Interpretation of this
lauso that the legal status of the proposl-
.lon hinges. The democrats assert that this
liould bo construed to apply only to on tip-
lolntment by the mayor and confirmation by
ho council , while the republicans claim that
t also concedes the authority to call an
ilectlon at any time under the provisions of
ho ordinance which was passed last week
If the court can he Induced to take the
icmocratlo view of the proposition It Is ex-
iected that the Injunction on the mayor will
ie granted on the ground that the council
lad no legal right to pass an ordinance
: allng an election at a time not contemplated
py the charter. The republicans are borrow-
ng no trouble , and declare that even If their
ipponents should appeal to the court they
vould be knocked out In a minute , as the
ipeclal election to fill a vacancy was ex
actly what was contemplated by section IS.

akliiR her London attorney. William Isaac
ihard , a co-defendant. This suit has been
Uthdrawn nnd another for a like amount

cgatto-ns being almost Identical. On top of
all of this , the husband , Adolphus , has sued
John W. Cooper for $75,000 damages , the
averment being that as long ago as January

In another suit Llnton has sued the at-
orney , Shard , for 183,000 damages , alleg-
ng that In London , when ho was sued by

ompany stock deal , he retained Shard to
ook after his Interests , then and there ad-
nnclng the sum of 120 as a retainer. In-
tcad of looking after his end of the suit ,

ecret agreement Vtllh the enemy , making a
ettlement lhat was against the interests ot
ds client.
ciiorruD HIS IIIM.U orr.
Judge Scott ( Sets Aftrr Attorney Itltcblo
nnd blmt * Him Out nf Court.
Judge Cunningham R. Scott had another
no ot his tantrums yesterday , and while
he spell was upon him he swung the cleaver
nd cut off the head of a lawyer , sending him
ut into the world without a sheepskin.
Some months ago the police raided the
alaon of Mike Wallenz on a warrant sworn
ut by the city license Inspector , In which
.ocument . It was charged that the said AVal-
onz was selling liquors without first having
ecured a license. Wallenz waived examlna-
lon and the cato came to the district court ,
vhere Attorney Albert S. Ritchie was look-
ng after the defendant's Interests.
Something like ten days ago Sir. Ritchie
appeared before Judge Scott asking for a
continuance on the ground that a material
tncss , Peter Eck , was absent from the
tate. At that time an affidavit was pre-
ented In which It was alleged that Eck
vas In the northwestern portion of Iowa.
Yestoiday Mr. Ritchie was In court again
.o ask for another continuance , still urging
hat he had been unable to secure the
attendance of his witness. He said that
3ck wns In Bloomlnglon , III , and to prove
he statement he asked Wallenz to produce
a letter written by Cck and bearing date of
October 11. This was the firebrand that
caused Mr. Ritchie all of his trouble Judge
Scott , at the mention of the letter , paced
ho floor , declaring that he was not to be
ilaycd The motion /or a continuance
id said that he would overrule , and what
vas more , he would disbar Mr. Ritchie from
practicing In his court. Mr. Ritchie tried
o explain that after he had made the affi
davit , some ten days ago. In which he had
alleged that Eck was in Iowa , ho had gone
over to Bloomington. where he was at this
: lme. Scott remarked that he still had the
affidavit in mind , and added : "You are
disbarred from practicing before me until
you can purge yourself. "
In speaking of the matter after the court
had adjourned , Mr. Ritchie slid thai he was
acting In the most honorable manner with the
court In the Wallenz and all other cases.
The only reason lie could Imagine that
Scott had It in for him was by the fact that
one year ago when a large number of the
lawyers of the district took steps to have
Scott removed from the bench , ho signed
the petition asking for his removal. Re
garding the Wallenz matter , Mr. Ritchie
said that he know nothing about Eck having
removed from Iowa to Bloomlngton until he
read the letter , and asking for the con-
tlnuar.ce was simply a duty that he owed to
bis client He had not Intended to mlslcac
or Impede the work ot the court. So far as
purging himself In Scott's court was con
cerned , ho said ho did not think that he
should do fo , as he had done nothing dis
respectful or unprofessional.
