What Attorneys Had to Say.
The proceeding! opened with an addresa
by Mr. Connell. who explained the legal
t bases of the controversy, making the point
that the city could reclaim the ground un
let the company lived tip to Its contract.
Attorney Ranroco, representing the Iron
moulders, followed by presenting their side
cf the case.
City Attorney Connell reported the re
sult of a conference he bad had with Gen
eral Solicitor Kelly on the subject. "Mr.
Kelly told me," eaid Mr. Connell, "that be
didn't have anything to do with the pro
mulgation of the order, but that he knew
of lta existence. He aald the railroad com
rany expected fully to carry out all the con
ditions of lta contract with the city, and
that already it was building a plant on
iiiuch more extensive scala than wai con
templated at the time the contract was en
tered Into. Instead of expending $750,000 on
the shops, he said, ai wai originally
planned, the company Is going to spend
Councilman Haacal said: "I'm In favor
of adopting the resolution aa it has been
Introduced, and then If the railroad com
pany wants to have a controversy with the
rlty, let's make It red-hot. Let us find out
what the new work now In progress con
templates, and then If there is no corner
there for the Iron moulders I am In favor
of holding the company to the strict letter
and spirit of Its contract."

Councilman Loberk aald: "I had a talk
with Mr. Kelly and be told me It would coat
more to run the foundry here than the
company could buy the castings for In Chi
cago. Chicago castings, he said, were bet
ter anyhow than those made la Omaha,
since they contained more new pig Iron.

be unnecessary. Few western railroads bad
Iron foundries at their repair shops, he
aid. However, as for myself. I think the
company should be compelled to live tp to
its contract or forfeit the ground deeded
It by the city."
Mayor Moores ssld: "When I signed the
ordinance deeding the ground to the Union
Pacific road I did so with the understand
ing and belief that it would end the city's
troubles with the road, and when I read
here the other day that the company waa
going to remove Its foundry I confess I waa
startled. It looked to me as an evidence
that the company waa acting In bad faith.
I think we should find out at once whether
the company proposes to maintain perma
nent sbeps here, and If we find It doesn't
propose so to do. then I would be In favor
of taking bark what we gave It to secure
urn a eonreasion."
Councllmen spoke along similar linea and
moved that the resolution be referred to
the Judiciary committee with Instructions
to report It to the council meeting this
evening. The motion waa carried unani

NEW INITIATION CEREMONY
Member of Board of Ak-ar-Hew le
feada Drpartare frsaa
There la considerable speculation among
the Knights of Ak-Sar-Ben as to the out
come of the present aeaaon'a work, aald
a member of the board. "The Innovation of
abandoning the initiation only passed the
board of governors by a narrow majority
and la looked on by the faithful with mixed
feelings of approval and regret. A self
constituted committee of twenty-two old
members met the ritual committee Satur
day and atrongly urged a return to the
plana that have been so successful In past
years. Chairman Allen explained to them
at length, that it waa too late for any
change, aa the arrangements for the year
are too elaborate and far-reaching to admit
alteration. Many prominent speakers already
have been Invited to be present different
evenings during the summer, among them
Senators Mason, Dietrich, Piatt, Vest and
Bailey of Texas, and Governor Savage. The
space Immediately south of the Coliseum
has been leveled and will be turned Into a
beautiful summer garden, where refresh
ments will be served and music discoursed.
Every Monday night before and after the
meetings a portion of the Coliseum Itself
has been fitted with billiard tablea and
bowling alleys, ping pong tables, a small
but complete gymnasium, shower baths and
lockers. In addition particular pains has
been taken with the ceremonies, which,
while simple, will be solemnly grand and
"The ritual committee has every reason
to believe that the membership will
promptly come around to their way of
thinking, as soon as the meetings com
mence, which will be May 4.
"Owing to the radical change above out
lined, the board of governors is seriously
considering the advisability of making each
third Monday evening 'ladies night,'
whether a small membership fee will be
charged the women, if admitted, or whether
the Invitation will be extended the Woman's
club and the Immediate relation of the
knights, is a mooted question.
"The plana for the annual parade and
carnival, are also far advanced. One large
retail firm baa asked the board of gover
nors to locate the carnival grounds on the
old Murray plat, south of the courthouse.
This matter, however, is yet In abeyance."

position with regard to both the extremely
conservative and the liberal schools of be

Who Has aio.wto Verdlrt
At a regular meeting of the Board of
Education Monday night. Superintendent
Pearse reported that there were 15.629
pupils in the city schools April 11,. which
is an Increase of seventy over the enroll
ment of the corresponding dsy, one yesr
ago. He added: "The Indications are that
my next report w ill show a decrease, aa to
several of the achoola there Is a mild
scourge of measels and whooping cough,
and scarlet fever Is quite prevalent."
An Invitation was received from the va
rious Grand Army of the Republic posts
of the city, urging the member of the
board to participate in the Memorial day
parades and other rites tn honor of the
soldier dead to be observed May SO. The
invitation waa accepted.
Leaves of absence were granted to the
following teachers: Misses O. 9. Chitten
den. Elirabeth P. Allan, Nellie Van Duyn,
A Hire Hitte and Alice Drake. A discus
sion of some length wsa precipitated by a
resolution Introduced by one of the mem
bers, which proposed to grant Mies Drake
a ten-day leave of absence with pay, as
she wished to attend the international kin
dergarten convention In New York. The reso
lution waa finally voted down, as It seemed
to be the general opinion that to grant
thla permission would be to establish a
dangerous precedent. She wsa given a
leave of absence without pay.

Comptroller Westberg reported that he
exsmined the achool funds In the hands
of the city treasurer, snd found that, on
March SI. they amounted to f232.206.St, of

from bis wedding tour, was present for the
first time since his marriage. He thanked
the board for its resolutions of congratu
lations, adopted at the last meeting. "We
will prlxe those 'benedictlne' resolutions,"
said he, "not only because they reflect the
hearty spirit of well-wishing, which I be
lieve thla board entertains for me, but be
cause of their literary ejycellence."
Appeal la MrDoaald Case.
A resolution was adopted directing the
attorney for the board to perfect hla ap
peal in the case of John McDonald, against
the achool district of Omaha. This is the
case wherein Architect McDonald aued the
board for $10,000 damages, as the result of
the rescinding of his blanket contract aa

court, receiving a judgment for the full
amount and interest.
A communication was received from

of the plans and prospecta of the Nebraska
delegation for the trip to Los Angelea and
the remainder of the hour waa given over
to general sociability.
An Impression has gone abroad among the
club women that the club women's special
train that is to take the Nebraska delega
tion to Kansas City will lesve Omaha at
midnight Thursday. This report has be
come so generally circulated that It la
feared there will be trouble. The train
loaves the Burlington station promptly at
10:30 p. m. Thursday, though the berths
will be made up at any time after 9
o'clock. Applications for accommoda
tions have come In so rapidly of late that
one coach is nearly filled. The complete
representation to which Nebraska Is en
titled at the biennial is seventy women
and of this cumber about forty-five have so
far expressed their intention of attending.
The state federation will have Ita full
representation of delegates and alternatea.
The Lincoln delegation, which consists ot
about ten women, will not go with the
Omaha and atate delegation. The club
women's special which leavea Omaha at
10:30 Thursday evening will be met at
Kansae City the next morning by the Iowa
and Minnesota delegations, which will make
up the train through to Los Angeles.
Local club women are planning a royal
send-off for the Nebraska biennial visitors
and while the committee has not divulged
all of Its Intentions the travelers have
reason to suspect that their departure will
not be unattended with hilarity In keeping
with the dignity of club women.
At a committee meeting held yesterday
afternoon final arrangements were made
for the reception of the four trains of New
England club women and the Michigan dele
gation which pass through the city Friday
afternoon. Each train will be met at Coun
cil Bluffs by a committee of three women
and at the Omaha station by a reception
committee of from ten to twenty women.
If time will admit of It, it is hoped to take
the visitors for a car ride over the city.
Some . light refreshment will probably be
served at the atation and flowers will be
presented to each delegation.
