'KOUTSKY DISCUSSES CITY BUSINESS 1 .. llepreseatatlv of Financial Concern Mays Present Holders of Bonds Will iiot Consent to the Re , , newel Arrangement. Another cnthuslastlo'raliy of republicans vaa held at the troop armory last night. iAa a week ago, this meeting was held under the auspices of the Swedish-American league No. 2. Juhn Nelson presided and in troduced the speakert One of the ft ret speakers was Frank Koutsky, republican candidate for mayor. After the hearty applause bad subsided Candidate Koutsky spoke, in part, as fol lows: "As you all know, I am not much of a apeechmaker, but I do desire to say a few things about municipal affairs. Since I have been city treasurer more personal taxes have been collected within the period of two years than during any similar time In the l story pf the city. The records of the cilice show, a, expert accountant vouch, that every cent collected by me as treas. tiror has been, accounted for. Some people aay that received money on dally balances from the local banks. This is an absolute misstatement. The banks do not now and jiever have paid me a cent of interest on daily balances. This practice was discon tinued over two years a pro for the reason that the city might have large sums on de posit one day and the next the treasurer might issue a call for warrants and draw out all of the money on hand. I have done this frequently In order to save the city in terest which it pays on warrants." The brief address of Mr. Koutsky was Mell received and he was given an enthusi astic reception as be left the rostrum. Other candidates on the ticket followed Mr. Koutsky and the meeting was consid ered one of the best so far held during the campaign. There was another rally at Evans' hall, Twenty-eighth and R streets, Where the candidates also spoke. -i jmii rtr'Maat Ilrtns; ' Knit. . .. "If the .Johnston-Kelly-Miller combina tion expects to deliver to C. Bevln Old iHeld the recent lasue of $140,000 of renewal bonds it is ' badly mistaken." This state ment was made yesterday by a representa tive of one of the big bond buying houses of the east. Continuing, the representative Bald: "In the first place, considering the underhanded work which has been done fand the . manner in which the ordinances iswere passed no bond attorney would consent to such a deal. Next is the reluctance of holders of the present bonds to let go of securities which they now hold and take a lower rate of Interest. One concern in the east, a big banking house, virtually controls the original issue and It will not, to my certain knowledge, ask its customers to turn in the bonds they now hold for others to be Issued at a lower rate of Interest, Just because some politicians who are going ' out of office want them to. The original feonds were Issued for twenty yeans straight and the holders will endeavor to force the elty to carry out Its agreement. At any rate the renewal of this issue of bonds at this time is illegal for the reason that the pres ent city charter does not provide for an option after the expiration of Ave years. It la true that the old charter did, but the city has been working under the new char ter for a year now and it cannot go back to the old charter because the combination mentioned suddenly takes it Into Its head to try and save the city money. It is a safe wager that if the present city authorities attempt to perform their part of the con. traot with Mr. Oldfleld they will meet with some stubborn opposition from the holders 'tef the present bonds."

A repub lican said at the headquarters last night: "Frequently democrats pursue these tactics but this year the play is being made stronger than ever. This Is because A. R. Kelly and his man Mitchell are helping out Loechner in bis troubles. It Is pre sumed that if Koutsky should be elected mayor too much light would be thrown upon the recent administrates. At any rate It is safe to say that the coloniza tion movement will be watched closely.' "pedal Council Meeting:. There was a called meeting of the city council held last night. It was for the purpose of complying with the recent man date of the supreme court in regard to the Catherine Drlscoll claim. In order to avoid the making of a special levy for the purpose of liquidating the claim at once it was decided to make a transfer of funds. All of the money In the judgment fund was used and a portion of that remaining in me interest fund was transferred In order to make up the total of $1,770. The city clerk was Instructed to draw warrants today for the amount, and so with this pay ment the famous Drlscoll claim will doiibt less come to an end. Made City Gossip. Register today.

C AYBtt CO CARRIE NATION AND OMAHA Kansas Crusader Givei the Town t Verbal Smashing. UNDER SAME ROOF WITH A LIQUOR BAR Her Invitation to tin on Wrecking Toar of City Declined by Woman Mho Heard Her I.ectnre. Carrie Nation has come, has lectured and has bad a night in Omaha, but a dry man can still get a drink. The promoter of parched tonsils arrived at the Webster street depot at 6:35 last evening and In the absence of other reception committee was taken in charge by Albert Parmelee, who Introduced himself as the only newspaper man In Omaha who neither drinks, smokes, chews or uses slang, and by Washington O. Perclval, who chews his cigars, but never smokes them. One took her satchel, shaped like a traveling man's toilet grip, and the other her dressing case, shaped like a Kansas barroom after one of her calls. They led her to Fred Meyer's car rlage, Mr. Meyer having done as much as any other hackman In the world toward doing away with liquor, and he whisked her away to the Her Grand amid the shouts of about 300 persons, many of them women, who had assembled at the depot to see her arrive. She Didn't Bar the Bar. At the hotel desk she did just what her schedule calls for. Addressing Manager Shafer, who was behind the desk, she said "I want a room, but, young man, I see you've got a bar in this tavern." "Yes, a real good one. Front, show the lady the bar," answered the hotel man serenely. "Oh, mercy, I don't want to see It. won't even stop here or any place else where there is a bar." But she did. She stopped there and she ate there. Coming out of the cafe she faced the cigar stand, presided over by Miss Hat tie McAdsu, and raised her hands in bor ror. Striking a pose suggestive of Nell Burgess in "The County Fair," she ex claimed: "Ob, to see one of my sex handling those nasty things and tempting men to do wrong and spend their money foolishly It's terrible! " A traveling man was just lighting up and she turned on him. "You, sir, you are wicked to do that and you know it. You ought to be ashamed!" Sweeping out to the elevator, sniffing as she went, she was taken up to the parlor and then posed most cheerfully for The Bee's staff artist, retaining her shawl, of which she said: "Oh, I love It; I love It. I wouldn't have my picture taken without It. It was my only pillow In Jail." She sent down word to have her baggage taken to a room, remarking that she hated to stay in a hotel where there was a bar, but that there didn't seem any way around It. Missed Many Faces. She was sorry, she said, to see so many vacant seats at the Boyd theater last night. As a matter of fact, it was not a crowded house, but such as were present lost not a syllable of what was perhaps one of the most remarkable discourses ever delivered from the stage of that playhouse. It was evident from the startoff that she was "fer nlnst" the things that be. She shot ragged holes In the social system, upset theology, ripped politics up the back,, and . with a well-primed . charge . of verbal . dynamite blew up the government at Washington. . At 8:30 the curtain ran up, disclosing a table with a pitcher of light-brown Mis souri river water on It, twe ohairs and a piece of scenery representing a street with two or three saloon signs over the sidewalk. The scenery was probably an accident. A moment later the famous hatchetter emerged from the wings, followed by a female at tendant. Both stepped to the table and took a drlnk of the fluid In the pitcher; then the attendant seated herself in one of the chairs and Carrie strode to the foot lights and began her lecture without a line of preface. She scolded those present because others had stayed away, and then painted a word picture of Omaha as a "hell-hole of In iquity." She wore a severely plain brown suit that "hiked up" in front and hung straight behind. Fastened to her bosom was a small gold hatchet made into a pin. Samples of Her Shots. Here are some of her epigrams: I am a lilerallst; I Just take the bible literally and don't try to spiritualise. Oh, for radicals and fanatics! 1 wish we had more of em! We've got a lot of perjurers in office In Kansas. From down they're a lot of rotten perjurers devil s scullions! One morning the Iord spoke to me. and lie said: "You go to Cairo!"

If there's any six women In this house mat u go out ana smash saloons tonight a ii sq wun yuui At the close of the harangue the speaker announced that she had a lot of little hatchets mids Into pins that she would sell at 10 cents each; there were oly a tew left. She then installed herself in box A and for the next quarter of an hour was busy sell ing trophies of her prowess. - Unlldlnn- 1'ernilts. Building permits have been issued as fol lows: Julia A.

The Are Insurance agents of Omaha are not satisfied with the action of the compan ies they represent In advancing the rates In Omaha on commercial risks outside of those where the schedule rating has been applied. There was a meeting of the Fire Under writers association of the city yesterday afternoon, at which the conditions were dis cussed and it was decided that there was nothing in the local situation to warrrant any advance, to say nothing of the 25 per cent which has been demanded by the companies by letters to their several agents in this territory. It was decided that each agent should write a letter to his companies protesting against the advance in rates snd showing that the conditions in Omaha are not such as to demand any such action "Several of the agents went so far as to say that they would refuse to write policies at advanced rates and some Intimated that certain com panies not In the insurance union would be found which would be willing to accept risks at the present rates. Once before some of the agents of the city have succeeded In having companies rescind an order for an advance In rates. A few years ago some of the companies decided to sdvance rates upon dwelling houses snd Instructed their agent In this city to put the Increase into effect. This agent absolutely refused to consider the matter and tendered his resignation rather than exact the advanced rates. He explained his reasons to the companies and in reply the proposed rates were rescinded. CRAWFORD IS EXALTED RULER Spirited Contest nt Annual Election of the Omahn Lodge of Elks. Omaha lodge of Elks held Its annual elec tion last night. It was the warmest contest that ever occurred In the local lodge, and more members were present than had ever before assembled in the hall. The principal contest was between Frank Crawford and Frank P. Hanlon for the position of exalted rulor, and while the rivalry was friendly, it was none the less earnest, and every man who had a choice between the candidates and all who could be impressed by either side were present, so much so that when the votes were counted It was found that over 200 had been cast, Mr. Crawford winning out. Lulun C. Gibson was chosen esteemed leading knight; Judge Lee S. Estelle, es teemed loyal knight; J. R. Dewar, esteemed lecturing knight; Frank A. Furay, secre tary; Charles L.

LATHERS THE "MUG" OF BAILIFF GREBE l.nale Objects, bat Justice Potter Overrules Objection, as It Is Sight and Mo Other Mags Available. The goddess of justice on the courthouse dome bent far over snd hung by her toes while she tried to peep into courtroom No. 2 last night in an effort to discover what was going on. Her marble eyes discrrned a professional barber poised in the middle of the room with a lathered shaving brush In his hand trying to show, by passes over an imaginary fare, bow shaving is correctly done and when the goddess saw this she knew that the suit of John Studelska versus the Moler Barber College was on. N On the bench, austere and Imposing, sat Charles Potter, ordinarily court sten ographer for Judge Slabaugh, but between times a justice of the peace In Dundee. The jurors were all from the same suburb and were business men, the list including John E. Moore, insurance; W. F. Sweezy, a for mer t'nited States marshal and large real estate owner; E. H. Westerfleld. attorney! O. E. Ferry, Insurance; A. II. Palmer, banker; W. S. Wedge, secretary of a build ers' association. Ths action was one of eighteen brought against the college by former students to recover the sums of from $40 to $100 they bad paid to be taught the trade, their alle. gatlon being that they hadn't been taught It. The attorneys were four in number and the first name of each was John, the last names being Yelser and Battln for the plaintiff and Cooper and Boucher for the defense. A. B. Moler, proprietor of the college, had come from Chicago to be present. May Be Drawn Ont. The hearing, which occupied until 10:45, and was then continued until 1:30 today, may last through many night sessions, as there are nearly twenty witnesses who may be called. The first was L. V. Guy, a pro fessional barber, whom the attorney for the defense accused of having interested him self on behalf of the barbers' union. His testimony was an effort to show that It re quires three years for a man to become a competent barber, acquainted with face photography, rotary lathering movements, razor boning and the four standard styles of hair cut, to-wlt., full cut, crown cut, halt crown cut and pompadour. In the course of the cross-examination he was furnished a mug, brush and soap and asked to demon strate the science of his trade. "I'll have to have another mug," he re marked. "Oh, I guess that Is big enough to put the lather In," said counsel for the defense. "But I want a mug to put the lather on,' answered the witness, emphasizing the last word. "The court will order Mr. Grebe, the bailiff, to furnish another mug," commanded Justice Potter. "Not on your life," responded the alarmed Louis. "My mug Is sore enough from my own experimenting." "Objection overruled. Witness will pro ceed to lather the mug of the bailiff from the mug of the defense, snd near enough the mugs of the jurors for them to see.
