The people of the Illaek Hills are holding
frequent meetings for arranging for the ex
hibit which the IllllR ilUtrlot Id to make at

day contains three columns of an account of
si meeting hold In the. court house at Dcail-
wejiid Wednesday of this week , at which rep
resentatives wtiro prt'Hfnt from nearly all of
the counties In the Dlack Hills district.
The pliniH of the exhibits were discussed and
the various represcntatlvi'H Indicated the
general nature of the exhibits which will be
made by thulr respective districts. The
famous Wind Cave of the Hot Springs dis
trict will probably bo reproduced on a small
ttcalc. Mini models of famous in I ties In the
hills will bo on every hand together with
models of HiuelterH , stamp mills , etc. One
general plan which was generally fuvored
consisted of a stone wall surrounding the
I'lillre exhibit upacc , the wall to.he con
structed nf the various kinds of building and
ornamental stone to bo found in the hllU , In
cluding onyx , quartz , pyrltic ore , galena ore ,
copper ore , etc. Inside this wall will be In

The Board of County CommlMloners will
flubmlt to the voters of Douglas county at i
the next ficneral election a proposition to
Issue the bonds of the county In the sum .
of J180.000 to fund the Judgments nnd claims '
now pending against the count ) on account |
of the attempt of a former board to sell a .
part of the old poor f rm property for city |

rate of 4'j per cent per annum , payable ;
teml-annually , ami shall not be sold for less '
than par. They are to be Issued In dcnom- ,
Inatlon * of $1,000. '
A resolution providing for the submission
of this preposition to the voters of the county
was Introduced at the meeting of the board
yesterday by Commissioner Klcratcad ,
who explained that this proposition did not
contemplate any Increase In the county In
debtedness , but was a means for avoiding
nn excessive levy of taxes tn pny at oncu the
Judgments and claims now standing against
the county , on which the holders arc now de
The question was raised whether the bond
proposition should be printed on a separate
ticket or placed at the bottom of the general
county ticket. It was stated that the lat
ter method would be fatal to the proposi
tion , as many people would think that If
they voted a "straight tlckot" they would ,
by the same act , vote In favor of the bonds ,
whereas this would not bo the case. This
question was referred to the special attor
ney employed by the board In the poor farm
Councilman Stuht appeared before the
board as a special committee from the city
council to ask the county to bear the bur
den of the registration of voters In Omaha ,
hauling the booths , etc. Ho was accom
panied by City Attorney Connell , who ad
dressed the board on the question. He re
ferred to the fact that no city officers are
to be elected this year , and to the condi
tion of the city funds , as reasons why the
county should bear the burden.
The city ofllcers received very cold comfort
at the hands of the commissioners. Com
missioner Hector said this was the experi
ence South Omaha had been having every
year slnco the registration law had been In
force , as their election had always been
held In the spring , and no city officers elec
ted In the fall. 'Mr. Hector turned the
tables on the city officials by reverting to
the old question of the amount due the
county from the city on account of boarding
city prisoners at the county Jail.
Commissioner Klerstead said the city offi
cers had squandered the funds of the city
and now asked the county to help them out
because the commissioners had been care
ful and economical.
City ( Attorney Connell hinted that the city
might refuse to move the election booths or
take any part In the election.
In reply to this Chairman Stenberg callnd
attention to the fact that when the booths
referred to were purchased It was agreed that
the cltv and school board should each pay
one-fourth of the purchase price and the
rountv ehould pay one-half , the city agree-
Inc to care for the booths and move them
to the points required at all general elections.
Mr. Connell asked for the reading of the
contract. The record was produced and read
aloud by the clerk , showing that the city
agreed to move the booths at all elections
in which the city and county should take
part , special exception being made In the
case of special elections held by any parly
to the agreement.
A protracted discussion ensued over the
ronitructlon which should be placed on this
clause. Mr. Connell claimed that the city
was relieved of responsibility In elections
where it had no IntereJt and Chairman Sten-
herg Insisting that the city was morally and
locally bound to carry out the spirit of the
A motion was made to refer the matter
In the finance committee and Mr. Stuht re-
nuested that the committee take action be
fore the next meeting of the council. There-
uuon Chairman Stenberg said the board could
settle the matter Instantcr and Commission-
era O.strom and Hector moved that the re
quest of the city be denied and that the city
be called upon to carry out Its portion of
This motion was adopted without delay and
Mr. Stuht departed.
A proposition was presented to the board
by Connell and Ives , In which they offered
to act as special counsel for the county In
the canea which have been pending In the
courts for several years against the Pullman
I'alaee Car company and the Belt Line Hall
way company for taxes which each company
refuses to pay. The proposition stated that
no charge would bo made for services unless
the county was successful In the suits , and
In CUSP of success It was provided that the
decision of the board fixing the conmensa-
tion would be final. The matter was re
ferred to the finance committee.

IMPROVING THEIR CIIABCE
Railroads Take Advantage of Break Between
Union Pacific and Short Line.
THROUGH TRAINS TO THE PACIFIC COAST
\cw " .Mlilliinil II on IP" SrlH nil lixiini-
ple Which Mny lie Viillnwpil hy
Uthri-H of < luWiNtiTii
The announcement that the Colorado Mid
land would tuke advantage of the break be
tween the Union Pacific and tlio Oregon
Hallway and Navigation company to establish
through Pullman car service between Den
ver and Portland has not only created much
interest in railway circles but has caused
other railroads to consider tt similar propo
sition. It is understood that the new service
or the "Midland Uoute" from Denver to
Portland will Include both first and second
class Bleeping cars. It will form the west-
em outlet for the combination o ( the Mil
waukee and the Hock Island , and Is ex
pected to prove quite a card.
Asked If the Ilurllngton would establish
thruugh car service between this city and
Portland via the Oregon Railway and Naviga
tion company line , General Passenger Agent
Krancls of the II , M. yesterday said :
"I shouldn't be at all surprised. The mat
ter is under consideration , but we haven't
ijulte made up our minds whether to put In
through car service over the Short Line
and the Oregon Hallway and Navigation com
pany or not. We already liuvu one route to
Portland , via nilllu&a and the Northern Pa.
clllu railroad , but It U possible that we may
open up another. "
Should the Ilurllngton decide to establish
another line of through car service between
here ami Portland it would be via these
lines : Ilurllngton from Omaha to Denver ,
Denver & HIo Grande from Denver to Grand
Junction , HIo Grande Western from Grand
Junction to OgOen , Oregon Short Line from
Ogdcn to Huntlngton , Oregon Halluay and
Navigation company from Huntlngton to
Portland. This would be In competition
with the I'nlon Pacific's line to Portland
via the "Shasta Houte , " with the Mil-
waukeo-Hock Island-Midland route , and
with the liurlington'8 cthrr route vlu 1111-
llneft and tbe Northern Pacific.
Thu through tourlit car service which li
noon to be established between Plttsburg and ,
San Kranclsco , via Omaha , Is In effect an
extension of tourist car service 600 miles
further eastward end railroad men who are
familiar with the progress of the move
ment consider It likely that extensions of
western tourist car service will be made still
further eastward. At present the rules of
the Joint Tradlc association prohibit the run
ning of tourist cars In New York , but the
rules of that Institution have been so badly
fractured during the last year that it Is not
at all Improbable that this rule will soon be
honored more In tbe breach than In the
Apropos the Inauguration of tourist car
rnrvlco from Pennsylvania to California
through Nebraska It may be well to cell at
tention to the length of the runs of tourist
sleeping cars on foniu of the new lines ,
The run via what has been termed "The
Midland Ilouto. " Including the Pennsylvania ,
the Milwaukee , the IVyik sland , the Colorado
Midland , tbe HIo Grande Western and the
Southern Pacific railroads , Amounts to no
less than 3,001 miles. " *
The run from PltUburB to San Francisco
via St. Louis Instead ref via Chicago and
Omaha , whlch will go 'lnto ' effect October
1. will include the Penasylvanla lines from
PlttdburR to St. Loils ; , ( he Missouri Pacific

figuring 2.7G4 miles. J '

As previously Indicated , the natural se
quence of the Union Pacific's break with
the Oregon Hallway & Navigation company
has appeared In the order to cancel all
freight and passenger tariffs existing be
tween the Union Pacific and the Oregon
Short Lino. Notices that such tariffs will
be withdrawn on Friday , October 1 , were
ycsterdsy filed with the Interstate Commerce
commission. After that date there will be
no through tralfic. cither freight or passen
ger , via the Union Pacific to points on tli :
Oregon Short Line and on the Oregon Hall
way & Navigation company's lines.
This Is the result of the New York con
ference among officials nf the Interestel lines.
It Is believed that General Manager Dickin
son , Freight Traffic Manager Munroe and
General Passenger and Ticket Agent Lomax
of the Union Pacific will return from the
conference within a few days. Until then
the subordinate officers of the reid here
can give out but little Information on the
disruption of all traffic alliances between
the Union Pacific and what was once Its
branches. The result will be ta divert busi
ness from tlio Union Pacific to other western
lines for delivery to the Oregon Short Line.
