QUESTION OF LIABILITY
Board of Education Hal a Peculiar Propo
sition to Face.
CALLED ON TO PAY FOR STOLEN GOODS
Theftn from the Clonk HOOIIIH of
School Itiilldlnux llrlnur I'p u
loii of the l.lahlllty
of ( In.Hoard. .
The Uoard of Education held a long meet
ing last night. There was little beyond thu
regular routine business to prolong the ses
sion , but the board took occasion to discuss
In an Informal way the recent thefts In the
'High ' school. The matter was brought up by
a motion from Mr. Fonda , authorizing the
expenditure of $6.50 for the purchase of anew
now overcoat for Willie Duggan , a pupil
whoso coat was stolen from the coat room
several weeks ago. He explained that the
father of the child had asked to be reim
bursed for the loss. The father , he said , Is
a poor man , working on a railroad section ,
and was unable to buy a now coat for the
boy. .Mr. Fonda flald ho did not know what
the legal statu.'i of the proposition was , but
ho felt that the board was under moral ob
ligation to buy the boy a new coat.
Mr , 1 ho ma a said ho was willing to help
the boy , but ho did not believe It was set
ting a good precedent to appropriate the tax
payers' money net apart for school purposcn
to such uses. Ho suggested that at ) therj
were just alx members of the hoard present
that each should chip In $1 and buy the
coat and quit talking about It.
The suggestion did not seem to meat the
approval of the other members , although
some of them generously otfcrcd to contrib
ute all their B.ilartrs aa members , and
Thomas moved to amend the motion and re
fer it to the secretary and attorney for an
opinion as to Its legality.
Snydcr thought that If the board Intended
to buy the boy a now coat It should not wait
until next summer to do It.
Fonda again declared that the beard wan
morally , and he believed , legally responsible
for the coat for the reason that It was
against the rule ? , which the board has ap
proved , for the child to take his coat to hli
seat. Ho was obliged to hang It In the
closet , where It Was out of ha ! possession
and beyond his protection. This made the
board responsible for Its safety.
. Thomas called attention to the theft of the
deposit check for J500 , and other sums of
money that had been stolen from the cloak
rooms , and asked If the board would like
to be held responsible for these losaea.
The matter was finally referred to the
secretary for legal advice , with Instructions
that If he found , the sum could bo legally
appropriated to draw an order on the chair
man of the finance committee for the
City Welghmastor Hlggcson complained
that the contractor who was supplying the
coal to the schools was not following the
provisions of his contract , which required
him to weigh on the city scales at the cen
tral market , all of the coal used In tlici
Washington avenue , the High achool and
the Harrison street bulldlnga. Ho com
plained that no coal had so far been weighed
by him. The matter was referred to the

R. F. Collier of Omaha paid out $28 yester
day for the privilege of managing for ono
day Nlblo's Gigantic Humpty Dumpty ag
gregation that scattered to the north , south ,
cast anil west after a sorry attempt to stave
off a lot of unpaid bills and play to an 1m-
[ patient house at the Dohany theater last
I night. The trouble had been brewing for
! some time , and even after gathering up the
[ scattered remnants of a once great show ,
from Marysvlllc. Mo. , and Scranton , la. ,
Mr. Nlblo met with a serious defeat last
night at the hands of Constable Albert ) , who
represented the combined claims of thu col
ored hand that had paraded the streets dur
ing the day. This action precipitated a
general strike , from the piano player down
to the new manager , Mr. Collor ) of Omaha.
I The first act was pulled off with moro or
1 less Interruption and explanations. Ono
I long wait 'was explained by the leading man
J by stating that "the great transformation
' Econo had become entangled.1' Hut the
finale came during the second act. The
overture failed to materialize , while the
piano player was presenting on order at the
box office for his wages. Finally Llttlo
Norma , the child wonder , came on with a
song. There was no orchestra or piano
player , and she struggled bravely. After
getting through "Tell Them That You Saw
Me , " and several kindred melodies , the au-
dlcnco refused to listen any longer. M.
Nlblo , In the meantime , was having a
stormy Interview with Manager Bowen In
the rear of the house. Ho had on his full
Humpty Dumpty outfit , but his bluff didn't
go , though he announced that none of his
people would work unless they got $10 on
back salary. There were no ten dollar bills
scattered around that Constable Albcrtl
wasn't carefully watching , and Nlblo went
back behind the scenes again to try what
eloquence would do. It didn't have any ef
fect on the players , except.Gcorgo Urooks ,
ono of the knockabout comedians. He tried
to sing but the audience refused to listen.
Finally ho ended the agony by calling the
audience fools , and going off the stage mad ,
Manager Howen Interfered at this Juncture ,
and called the fun off. Few complaints
wcro heard from the audience , as they all
seemed well satisfied at the substitution of
a bit of genuine llfo for the old original
time-tried "Humpty Dumpty. "
"Manager" Collier stated after the agony
was all over that he had resigned from the
show business for all time. Ho had met
Nlblo In Omaha and decided to back him for
a time. It had cost him Just $28 , and he felt
glad It wasn't more. All the company who
had the change rode back to Omaha. The
others walked. Constable Albcrtl spent the
night In guarding the attached properties.

Not Certain About Hellley.
The Identity of Rclllcy , the supposed Grls-
weld bank robber who was brought back
from Pennsylvania to answer to the charge
of shooting Nick O'Brien , Is causing consid
erable discussion. Hellley Is putting up a
ctrong case of Innocence , and ho has about
succeeded In peisuadlng some of , tbo police
to believe that ho Is not the man. Nick
O'Brien has seen him and maintains that
there to no mistake. While bringing him
iiero Sheriff Morgan stopped at Chicago and
took his prisoner around to the Plnkerton
olllces and the detective headquarters of the
city for Identification. There all the officers
disclaimed that the prisoner was Rellley. In
appearance the man Is uomewhat changed
after serving eighteen months In the Allentown -
town jail. He lies grown fatter and his com
plexion Is bleached. Ho has the red , stubby
jeard ho were when ho waa supposed to
mvo shot O'Urlen and In fllzo answers the

lawyer asks that $75 bo forwarded to him

Various members of the Board of Educa
tion have been holding secret conferences
with the police authorities for the purpose
of getting assistance In the effort to dis
cover the leaders In the vandalism done at
the high school a number of weeks ago.
Prof. Spruit , ono of the members of the
teachers' committee , held a conference with
Chief of Police Canning yesterday , and the
matter was discussed nt some length. What
action was taken of course Is not known ,
but It Is known , that the members of the
board have never relinquished their deter
mination to prosecute the boys If they could
succeed In finding the right ones. Ono of the
obstacles In their way was the great num
ber Involved In the job. So far ns can bo
ascertained the board has learned that there
were about seventy- five young men , more or
less , Implicated In the work. The disposi
tion Ins been not to prosecute any unless
the leaders and a majority of the others
could bo punished , and the largo number Im
plicated created the fear that their punish
ment would have a bad effect upon the
Voted til Two .SI at ox.
Thomas Parrlsh was lodged In the county
Jail last night In compliance with a request
from the sheriff at Blair , Neb. Parrlsh Is
a squatter who lives on the accreted lands
northwest of Crescent City. The charge
against him Is Illegal voting. During the
election last fall he voted In Blair and also
In Iowa. The long delay In arresting him
was duo to the fact that he could not be
located. Parrlsh admitted to Deputy Sher
iff Joe Welghtman , who arrested him , that
the charge of Illegal voting was true.
HKSTOIll'.S OIU113H IX ALASKA.
Spirit In the Territory I
Firmly 1'nt Down.
PORT TOWNSEND , Wash. , Jan. IS. From
the latest Alaskan advices It Is apparent that
the former lawless spirit prevalent in the
territory is being supplanted by a whole
some respect for law and order by the dis
trict court , which has just finished the win
ter session In Juneau. Concerning the In
dictment of Joseph Murray by the grand
jury for libel , the Mining Record says : "Mr.
Jcseph Murray , late fish commissioner for
Alaska and special treasury agent , saw fit , In
his last annual report , to impugn the mo
tives and Integrity of our court and court
officials nnd this action cf the grand jury
will afford him an opportunity to substantiate
his words or to crawfish his way out of the
predicament Into which he has permitted his
prejudices to lead him. All Alaska Is In
debted to United Statca Attorney Bennett ,
Clerk Rogers and Marshal Williams for the
able support which they have rendered Judge
Delaney In his efforts to kill the germs
of crime with which Alaska seems of late
to have become Inoculated. Each and every
one seems to have been actuated by no pur
pose other than a conscientious performance
of the duties Imposed upon them , and that
they have succeeded Is not to be gainsaid.
Th manifest determination of the court to
" maintain and enforce the lawa as they stand
has won the applause of the Judge's friends
nnd the respect of his enemies , and It Is to
bo hoped that the good work"so well begun
may not bo suffered to lapse , but may be
prosecuted to a finality. No better method
could be adopted for bringing about the
enactment of wholesome , legislation than
lies In the rigid enforcement of existing
misfit statutes. If these laws bo disre
garded and bo permitted to become a ueail
letter upon the statute books , they will
remain forever. It will require hard work
and plenty of It to secure substitution of
better , but Judge Delaney has pointed out a
way and opened the gates , and it remains
only for the people of Alaska to act In concert
anil In unity of purpose to secure the reme
dial legislation which has so long been
unavalllngly sought. "
Touching on politics , the following would
Indicate that residents of Alaska arc going
to take the republican administration at Its
word on the subject of home rule : The name
of Edward Degroff Is prominently mentioned
for the clerkship. It Is rumored that J. G.
Brady of Sltka Is also a candidate , though
his mind has been leaning toward the gov

CEDAtt UAPIDS , la. , Jan. IS. ( Special. )
Great Interest Is being manifested In the
case of William Wlggln against Charles A.
Hucton , which Is now on trial In the district
court 'before Judge Ilcmley. Every day
the court room Is crowded with men , women
and children from the northern part of the
county , where the parties to the suit arc
well known. Mr. Wlggln has sued Mr. Hus
ton for $10,000 damages for alienation of
his wlfo's affections. Mr. Huston Is ono of the
largest landowners In northern Linn county ,
and Is reputed to be worth from $40,000
to $50,000. For a number of years he has
been very prominent In politics , and few men
are better known In the county than he.
In 1894 Mr. Wlggln and his family moved
onto ono of Mr. Huston's farms near Wau-
bcck. He reserved one room in the house for
his own use , and often remained there for
several days at a time. Wlggln alleges
that Huston took advantage of the oppor
tunities offered , won the affections of his
wife , became Intimate with her , and subse
quently caused her to leave him , and for
this lie asks damages In the sum of $10,000.
A number of leading lawyers ore employed
on both sides and the contest Is being bit
terly fought. The trial probably will last
a week or ten days yet.

NEW ORLEANS , Jon. 18. A special to
the Times-Democrat from Atlanta , Ga. , says :
Sam Palatka , cross-eyed , a fiend In expres
sion , revolting In countenance , has confcsscJ
to having perpetrated the horrible Cahaba
brldgo disaster , which occurred three weeks
ago In Alabama. Stolidly and with immov
able lines of criminal harshness on his face ,
ho admits that he , single-handed , sent twcii-
ty-sevcn persons to a horrlblo death and
wounded and maimed a core more. There
was no romantic reason back of the work
of this courageous coward , a man who dared
dUcovory , which In Alabama meant certain
death , to drlvo a train to ccstructlon In order
to obtain a few dollars.
Palatka was arrested In Eatonton , Putnam
county , In middle Ocorpla. His first cap
tors believed him half-witted , us ho gave
himself away. Those In charge of him today
In Atlanta , as ho was on lila way to Ala
bama , say he Is absolutely reckless and en-
Jtlrely wit hout human feelings. Today he
spoke of the fearful wreck with no sign
o ! emotion.
"I did It , " ea'ld ' Palatka. "I wanted
money. It's nobody's business- what I
wanted It for. I did. I found It very easy.
I say this for the benefit of those who want
( o wreck trains. It Is Just as easy to wreck
a passenger train as It Is to wreck a freight
train. There's no money In a freight. I did
not get anything out of the wreck , I moved
a rail , put 'It across the track and the whole
business seenled to fall , There wcro plenty
of dead folks with money ono man had
$300 but before I could get It the llvo ones
got up and then the crowds came. I skipped
out then. " _

WASHINGTON , Jan. 18. A number of
senators , together with several representa
tive shipbuilders and owners of steamship
Ines.mct In the rooms of the senate commlt-
tee on commerce today and had a conference
as to the best method of Improving the mer
chant marine. Senators Fryc , Perkins , Ledge
and Elklns , and Messrs. Qriscom , Sowall ,
Smith , Clyde , Cramp and Hyde and several
others Interested In ships and shipping ,
wcro present. The plank in the republican
national platform calling1 for discriminating
lutlcfi was the basis of the discussion. Some
of those present favored It , whllo others
were opposed , stating It might tend to divert
: ho carrying trade to Mexico and Canada ,
to the detriment of American ports and
American ships. There was a general In
terchange of views , and the opinion was
expressed that a bounty In the way of mall
jounty on tonnage , such as given by for
eign countries , would bo better than dis
criminating duties. Ono gentleman ex
pressed the opinion that $5,000,000 a year
llstributod among American lines would
mild them up equal to the English lines.
The senators finally said the s'llp owners
and builders should agree among themselves ,
and they were asked to prepare what they
thought was a suitable measure , which
would not conflict with treaties , and send It
o congress. _
