Schradcr , the Chicago cnglnccre employed by tlio special committee of tlio Hoard of Directors of the TtancmlaalEslppI Exposition association to Inspect the five alte < ) proponed as locations for the exposition , arrived In Omaha > OT- terday. After engaging rooms at the Tax- ton the experts went at once to the office of C. i : . Yost , chairman of the special commit tee. Hero they met Messrs. Yost anil Wll- cox , the third member of the committee , J. II. Mlllard , being out of the city. After a short conference It was decided that the most expeditious plan of examining the fllttfl would bo for each alto to be shown to the experts by Its friends without the Intervention of any niembep of the special committee or of any advcfse Interest , after which the engineers mtqht make such In vestigations as they wished. In accordance with this arrangement , Mr. Yost telephoned the advocates of each of the sites and asked them to come at once to his office. In a short time Ue Kstcllo , representing the Ulvorvlew park site ; I ) . II. Christie , representing Miller park ; City Attorney Council , representing the Hanscom park site , and \ \ . II Dennett and Ocorgo W. Kelley , repre senting Dlmwood park site , were on htind. After consultation It was decided that Miller park should bo visited jtfiterday morning , Haniscom park In the afternoon , Interview park this morning and Hlmwood park thin afternoon. The representatives of Kast Omaha were not present , but It was In formally decided that the site lying between Cut-Off and Florence lakes should bo visited Wednesday morning. Councilman Chrlatlo quickly secured a carriage , and , accompanied by II. W. Hlch- urdHon , another ardent advocate of the ad vantages offered by Miller park , the start was made for the north side park. The parly returned to the 1'axton In time for the engineers to take the edge off an ap petite whetted by the short outing , after which they were taken In band by Ulty Attorney Connelt and drl\en out to Ilanscom park. In rosporso to questions the experts said that In inaUIng their reports to the com- mltlco and Hoard of Directors they would Include all matters which , In their Judg ment , had nny bearing upon the desirability of the several sltca for exposition purposes To do this they said they should consult with the city engineer regarding the grades , sewer and water facilities and other en gineering data necessary to bu taken Into consideration and should also make such examination of all the surrounding condi tions as would enable them to make an In telligent and comprehensive report. KAItl.V ACTION Ts MU'OHTANT. Itrnl HNlutc Mrll Drue tinXei - -HHl ( } of IXiiiMlltlon. The exposition was Ilia principal subject , of discussion at the meeting of the Heal n.state exchange jostcrday. As a result the following icsolutlon , offered byV. . 13. Tay lor , was unanimously adopted : "Resolved , That It Is ths bense of the ex- changa that It is of the greatest Impoitanco that the Nebrauka legislature now 'In ses sion shouid Immediately proceed with the consideration of the bill'ifoupending making an appropriation for tlio Transmlsslwilppl Ex position , and that the said bill should bo favorably considered without unnecessary de lay. In view of the fact that the legisla tures of other states aru now In session and that they will bo largely governed by the action of the Nebraska legislature on this very Important measure , It should receive Immediate consideration and prompt , final and favorable action on the part of our legislature. " In support of the resolution Mr. Taylor called attention to the fact that unless the Nelnifik.i bill was passed before Februaty 1 then ? vould bo only two or three weeks left In which to secure appropriations from the ItglMatuics of tlio other western states. Naturally other states could not be expected t uct until Nebraska had done Us part. A committee expected to go to Springfield next week to urgi > the patsage of the bill now befoio the Illinois legislature , and the first question asked would be how much the Nebraska. leclslntuiu had appioprlated. The k'Klslirurcs of nearly all the western states were limited In time and It was Imperative that action should be taken n.s early ns pos- 6lble. The Nebraska bill , Mr. Taylor said , bhnuld bo paraed nt the earliest possible date In order that the committees might go before the legislatures of other states and tt.turo adequate appropriations. The resolu tion was dlscus-ced along this line and passed. There will bo another meeting of the exchange today to make arrangements for following up the resolution. A memorial on the death of J. Q.

The Woman's club took action jesterday afternoon upon the request of the executive committee of the exposition , asking the club to appoint a committee to formulate a plan for a woman's department of the ex position. A committee of nine members of the club was elected to formulate such a plan , and submit It to the exposition exec utive committee for its approval. The meeting of the club was held In the Crclghtou theater , and was attended by about 250 women. After the preliminary business of the meeting had been disposed of , the special older of the session was taken up. and Mrs. F , R Ford moved the ap pointment of a committee to name a com mittee or five to prepare such a plan as had been requested. Mrs. Sutlborough moved to amend by making the coitmltteo consist of nlno mem bers , In order to give It a wider scope. The amendment was discussed by several of the members , and was then adopted. President Harford suggested that the nom inating committed should report eighteen names to bo ballotled for. Instead of select ing nlno names , thus limiting the cholco of the club. This suggestion was Incotporatcd Into tlio motion , which wna then carried unanimously. The chair appointed the following nom inating committee : Mra. W. W. Koisor Mrs. W. II. Wyinnn and Mrs. n , 13.

The home committee was appointed to act an tellers , and the ballots were collected by the member * of the committee , who then re tired to the waiting room to count the vote. The meeting was thin turned over to Mrs. T. K. Sudborough , chairman of the educa tional department , who Introduced Superin tendent C. O.

A plan Is being discussed by which It Is proposed that the Rides shall go to Washington and participate In the Inauguration ccrcnnonles and at the same time do pome effectual mis sionary work In the cast for the Tr.uismls- slsslppt exposition. The plan Is to send the nifles to Washing ton In n special car , which will be decorate J and supplied with a quantity of advertising matter. The Iliflcs arc willing to stop at all the principal cities and give exhibition drills and at the same time afford an opportunity for the dissemination of Information relative to the exposition. At the same time they will endeavor to secure the attendance of the crack militia companies at the exposition and will make their club looms at Seven teenth and Douglas streets a headquarters for the ooldlcr bojs when they come to the city. The Idea has been submitted to mem bers of the executive committee of the ex position association and la regarded with a good deal of favor.

SPRING ELECTIONS VIEWED WITH ALARN City ( Hill-lain llntc Their Oun Plan In ( lie Hit-lit Ilia ! ( lie IVKN- ) latut-e .MnUi-N Some Char- tvr The prospect of a spring election Is hang Ing with awful menace over the ofilcla heads of the present Incumbents of the clt offices , find , although some of them lm\ but recently taken their scale , they are al ready beginning to build fences for re election. The municipal family has burled lot of personal differences during the pita week or two In an effort to got together am defeat the clause of Iho new charter tba proposes to legislate them out of the of flees with which they have scarcely had chance to become acquainted. Hut It I apparent that they have but little hope o making any Impulsion on the holy of law makers that nt present occupies the otat house. A committee went to Lincoln lav week on a aoit of scouting expedition am returned with no evidence of satisfaction , The majority of the city officials take I for granted that there will be an election next April and are now making their plan accordingly. No one Is more tully allvo t the exigencies of the situation than Mayo lircatch and for some time past he has been Industriously at woik building up a com blnatlon on which ho expects to secure a re nomination. The most wondciful fcatuic o the ma > or's candidacy Is the fact that Scwc Commissioner Wlnspcar Is his conlldcntla adviser and campaign manager. To thos who are familiar with certain deals tha wcro patched up In the major's ofllco las summer thla la not eurpi-lslni ; , but a vas number of others remember that only a > ea aga the mayor wna rampaging up and ilovvi the city asking for votes on the ground tha the first tnsk of his prospective ndmlnlstra tlon would be to annihilate Wlnepear The > have noticed that Droatch did not annlhltat worth a cent , but they are somewhat sui prised to see two such rancorous opponent peacefully slumbering In the same polltica oed. oed.All All this was accomplished during th weeks In which John T. Clarke's appoint ment as chairman of the Board of Publl Works was held up by the Influences com manded by Wlnspear and Munro. Th combination which was hinted nt at th tlmo has only recently blossomed Into at admitted fact. Mayor Hroatch refused to name a successor to Mr. Wlnspcar wl-on Mr. Clarke had been disposed of ; Chalrmai Munro retains his position at the head o the board , while Mr. Wlnspear retains hi title as sewer commissioner. In return for this the board discharged Its secrotarj to make room for a man chosen by Hit. mayor , and Winspcar Is now the head of the combination that Is engineering the candl dacy of Major Uroatch for re-olcctlon. Tlio plan of moblll/lng the city hall forces now being worked out is said to have em anated from Wlnspear. All the elective officers. Including the councllmen , have beet Invited to Join In an effort to beat the spring election provision In the new char ler. At least , that is what most of then are given to understand. A few of thu major's confidential advisers undcrstam that the real purpose Is to Join all theae officials In an alliance , offensive and de fensive , for the purpose of securing the ic- nomlnatlon of all of them In general am that of Maj'or Droatch in particular. It Is urged that Comptroller Wcstberg and Treas urer Edwards have no ncrlous opposition li sight. Therefore If all arc tied up to gether the bulk of the effort can bo con- conlrated on the opposition to Maj-oi Droatch. If the councllmen from each vvari can be held In the movement Its promoters expect , with the assistance of the appointive officials , present and prospective , to con struct a machine thafwlll be powerfu enough to control the prlniailcs In nearly every ward In the city. During the last few dajs , however , some at the other officials have been displaying some reluctance to becoming members ol the combination. Some of them calculate that as tlfo case ntands they have everj icaeon to believe they will be renomlnated They have gauged the opposition to Mr. Hroatch that Is already breaking out In various quarters and fear that In assisting him to realise his ambition they will ef fectually quash their own. Nevertheless there is every Indication that a powerful city hall combination Is In procecs of In cubation , headed by the major and the Doard of Public Works. It Is stated on reliable authority that Clerk HIgby Is prac tically p. part of it and that only the comp- tioiler , treasurer and a few councllmen re main to bo won over.

The partlcUlnrischcmo Is a step In the right direction , but It deco not cover what Is needed for tlio people In the middle vvrat , I have been 'having some discussion of the matter with Mr. Dana of the New- York Sun during the p st fovv months , and In a lesser way with iSocrctary Morton , Don M. Dickinson , Governor Flower and Bourke Cochran , but I am not , on account of my obscurity In life , In a position to secure at tention from thtao who have earned the power to command Not to Intrude upon jour valuable space to. > much I w.'l ' condense my Idea of the na tional needs b > quoting the following from the memorandum not Intended for publica tion , which I submitted lo Mr. Dana , as fol lows : "National prcsperlty and peace for the next fifty jcars can bo secured by a bold and biond policy for national defence anil advancement through the direct action of the government Itself , i > s follows : " 1. Five huudied mllllona expenditure for Rcacoast defenses on lines laid down by Mr. Tllden In the Carlisle letter which you have so long advocated. " 2. A gieat sjstcm of Internal Improve ments In the way of ship canals , of which the Hcnncpln canal to connect Lake Michi gan with thu MIsslEslppl broadwatcr to the gulf Is an existing Initiative. The system should also Include a canal via the St. Law rence and Lake Chnmplaln to the harbor and estuaries of New York. " 3. These broader canals to extend to the great Missouri basin , and perhaps to the base of the Ilocky mountains ; all to be rc- cnforced by lateral canals In the varloni states , the latter to bo supplied by state credit upheld by the federal credit , and subJect - Ject to fedeial supervision ; the peopleto pay low tolls on all canals to provide for low In terest on money for a period , nnd no tolls In the not far future. " Mr. Dana printed and crltlcUed this propo sition In , great personal kindness to the writer , but with some sevorltjHo dc- nouned It ns "a gigantic ocheme of social istic paternalism , federal and state , " be cause , and , 1 think only because , It suggests ultimate Iieo tolio on thesj canals Thla van tlono In the Sun of January 11 under the heading * , "Tho Canalization of the United States. " In an answer , whose publication I wan glad to leave to the friendly judgment of Mr. Dana , and which he evidently de clined , I was not willing to admit his con clusion , and suggested an amendment to my plan by striking out the lame p-jrt of It I cited to him , as I now cite to the editor of Tha Bee. the Erie canal as the whole argu ment for this great sjstem of Internal water- wiijs. What Now York has done with the Erin canal I would have the whole country do with the great productive areas of the west. If this country could defend Itself In war at the cost of $3.000,000.000 and millions of lives ; If it could tax the people to support a pension list of more than $100,000000 = year for moie than thirty jears ; If It can waste countless mllllona In building a navy whlcn will have to be rebuilt within twentj- llvo jcars ; If It can throw away hundreds of thousands and millions on postolllco struc tures In the towra and villages of the Unltcrt States which the people do not need ; If It cm shouldet $80,090.000 a jcar to carry on sjstcmatlc river and harbor piracies , Is It either wild or unvvlso to say that It can af ford nn expenditure during a series of jcais of 51,000,000.000 , or so much of that mnn aa may ho neccosarj , In building broadwater- wajs for the development of the wealth of the country ? Just as New York was en- ilchcd by the Erie canal by the upbuilding of the chain of manufacturing towns ana * cities from Harlem river along the Hudson , and from Albany along the Mohawk and Gen- cssce vallcjs to Buffalo , so would railroad and watcrwajs build up the states of the central west. I will not argue the case. It argues Itnolf And i am utterly oinabli to see any social ism , either state or federal , In the propo sition , any moro than itlicre has been In New York from the building and operation of thu Lrlo canalisince the daja of Clinton.

Ho was at a disadvantage In Ihat b's own violin broke Us neck a few dajs ago and ho was obliged to use an Inferloi Instrument. His rcnilc'lag of Schubert's "Serenads" his encore was a wonderful bit of playing.

Bees 118-07 CAN'T HELP IT TMie Nebraska can no more help selling things cheap than some people can hclp snoring through their sleep. It's a way we have. When we started in two years ago to sell styl ish , wc'l made and perfect filting shoes of solid leather for $1.25 , folks said 'twas just for an advertisement and that we possibly couldn't keep it up , Not only did we keep it up but we bettered the shoes and last week sold ten times as many asye did The same week last year. When we commenced selling a fine laundered shirt for ,500 , some years ago , people who always got a dollar for their white shirts , thought we struck a job lot somewheres and wondered how long 'twas going to last. Our contract with the factory this year calls for more 500 white shirts , by several thousand , than all of the dollar shirts combined sold in Omaha , outside of here. \ \ hen we introduced our Nebraska Special , four years ago , people who couldn't get a decent derby hat less than $3.00 bought them by twos , because they were afraid that the snap was too good to hold out. We have just received 112 cases of this remarkable fine fur derby , being the first invoice for the Spring trade and we will continue to sell the self same quality for $1.50 that people from far and near have come to know and appreciate as the equal in shape , finish and wear ing quality of aiiy other $2.50 hat in the world. Yes. The Nebraska sells things cheap too cheap maybe , but our busi ness was built up that way , and we've been at it so long now we couldn't stop it if we'd try. Folks would find it out too. . soon. 100 Couclice In the special sale at JS , $10. 70 different styles of dining tnblea In $12 , $15 , $18 , $20. $25. ? 30 , $10 and $50 all at tlio sale nt ? 5 , $ G , $ S. $12 , $14. $13. $20 , ? 25 , $30 and $10 all at greatly reduced prices. about half price.

Thlrly-flvo Omaha coal dealers have paid the license Imposed by the new coal ordi nance. Whether their money will bo re turned to them or not will depend on whether the suit that was decided adveiscly to the cltj Saturday will be carried to the supreme court. Clly Altorncy Connull Is ot the opinion thai the license of $20 lo not excessive and that the supreme court will uphold the legillly of Ihe ordinance But as he has beo'i absent from the city , the recom mendation of Assistant City Attorney Estellc will probably be followed The mailer will be brought before tlio city council tonight for some soit of action License Inspector Hursl sajs lhal In his opinion Iho cvldercc upon which Iho de cision agilnct Iho oidlnance was obtained will not hold. This evidence was lo the effect that there vvcio about 120 coal dcalcis In the city who would be compelled to pay n. license It the oidlnance was sustained. On that nuppcsltlon the court figured that the revenue would considerably c\ceed Iho cost of regulating the dealers. Inspector Hurst calls attention to the fact thai fully hnlf of these 120 dealers are not bona fide dealers In the scuio that they would pay a liter-He. One big coal concern has sent iu on ml a lot of cauls announcing that the establl.ihmci Is where thej are prated are agen'a for a ccitaln brand of coal These have bean posted In Iho windows of gioccrlcs and other business establishments and each of these has been icckoned as a coal con cern by those who are opposing the ordi nance. The Inopeclor contends that If a license were levied not ono of the con cerns would pay , but would simply take .down the card Consequently the Inspcclor figures lhal only aboul sl\ly firms are really In a position to pay n license , and on this uaais tlie tax imposed would not bo ex cess Iv e. sncics nivoitci ; rutm THIS IJOCTOH , III'M. Clni-lc CoeN ( o ( lie ConrH for Itellrf from Mntrlnioii } . Mrs. Jennie Bedford Gluck hasa applied to the cot.rto for a divorce from her hua- band , Dr. Isador Gluck. Tlio grounds on which the application la ba'jcd could nol bo learned , as llic allorncya for lira. Gluck abstracted the Hies from the olllco of the clerk of Iho district court , and tlio records In the olllco do not show the contents of the petition. The attorney in Iho taso first applied to llio clerk of Iho court and tried to have the case "auppressed" by not entering It on Iho dockel , but Deputy Clerk Harris refused to consent to any vlolition of Iho stnttitcH and Informed the attorney that the case must take Us regular course Ilia eamo aa all oilier cases , and must bo cnlcrcd on the court docket In its proper place and the papers then filed In regular older. Finding that this method of suppicBsIon would not work , the atlorncy started out on a still hunt for ono of the judges of the district court. Ho succeeded In finding Judge Uaker , and secured from him an order allowing the flics to bo re moved from the ofllco of the clerk for twenty days. This left nothing except the record showing Ihat a petition bad been filed and that an affidavit for publication had also been filed , the latlcr indicating thai the prcflt'iit whereabouts of Dr. Gluck aio unknown. Dr. Cluck Is well known In Qmaha , having been a prominent ploslclan and eye spe cialist hero for several years. Ho Is re ported to bo In Mexico , where It la alleged ho haa been for some tlmo engaged In busi ness. During his residence In Omaha Dr. Gluck figured quite prominently In society nnd was married to Mlro Jciinlo Uedford , a daughter of Jcffcison W. llcdford.
