The people of the Illaek Hills are holding frequent meetings for arranging for the ex hibit which the IllllR ilUtrlot Id to make at the exposition. A Uendwood paper on Thurs 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.

The bonds proposed to be Issued will | run for twenty years and bear Interest at the 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 manding payment. 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 cases. 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 contract. 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 the contract. 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. County Treasurer Helmrod submitted a report of fees collected by him during July and August , this year , amounting to $1)9.73. ) County Surveyor McHrldo requested au thority to employ one extra man to keep the olllce open while the entire force Is in the Held and an extra team for field work. Ho was authorized to employ one man from September 20 to November 1 at $3 per day am ! WHS authorized to hire an extra horse and buggy during the same period at the rate of $30 per month.

THROUGH TRAINS TO THE PACIFIC COAST \cw " .Mlilliinil II on IP" SrlH nil lixiini- ple Which Mny lie Viillnwpil hy Uthri-H of < luWiNtiTii Trunk Linen. 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 observance. 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 to Colorado Springs , ilicnco the Colorado Midland , the HIo Gfaliije Western and the Southern Pacific , the distance via these lines figuring 2.7G4 miles. J ' Loneer Ftill Is therj'n | of tourist sleeping inrs from Washington , ) to Sin Francisco , amounting to 3.C33 mllee 1 divided as follows : Mll < - .

AVITlimi.VW TUAFI'KJ ACJUKUMKXT.S. Trial Act In Union Tin-Hln mill Short U n iConflict. . 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. Mnlir ll Kltfct Hull. The special train of the Kantua City.
