Although the writ was most explicit and concrete In Its Instructions, there was a treat variety of opinion among the mem bers of the council as to how they should proceed. Never before has ther been so much concern manifested for keeping a "straight record." A majority of the council was on band at ' 10 o'clock, the time set for the meeting, but an hour elapsed before the tap of the gavel called them to order. Meanwhile a caucus waa held In the private office of the city clerk. These were present: Has rail, Karr, Whltehorn, Zimman. Trostler, Hoye and Lobeck. It was announced that Burkley and Mount were out of the city. though the former had left since service bad been obtained upon hlaa Thursday evening. Besides the foregoing. Attorney ABSOLUTE SECURITY.

Hascall was studying up a saury retort when Whltehorn woke up and wanted to know whether he should notify the In Ion Pacific to be on hand Monday afternoon. "Because If we're going to meet Monday as a board of equallxatlon." he added, "we can't give them a hearing." Nobody paid any attention to htm and the discussion was resumed. Mcintosh wanted the council to meet at once as a - board of equalisation, set the time for hearing the complaints of Relators Shriver and Morton, instruct the clerk to Issue notice and subpoenaea and then ad- ourn to that time, and this program, over the protest of City Clerk Eibourn, waa finally carried out.

Another motion provided tor the notifica tion of Mount and Burkley. Whltehorn asked bow be ahould proceed in the matter of the Union Pacific foundry hearing and waa told that be could set the hearing for 2 p. m. of next Monday.

MORRILL WINS STATE AMATEUR HONORS er Chamrloa Has to Kill Forty Fight Birds Oat of Fifty to V la Elliott- roshy boot Today. The third day of the state gun rlub tour nament was undoubtedly the beet si far. The day was at no time as pleasant as Wednesday afternoon and the targets were not as easy on account of the strong wind which blew them down and many of them were broken below the fence line. At the aame time the men were In better shape, as is shown by the scores. The high score wss little higher than that of Wednesday, but the average was ftu h higher and the number of men tied for first place waa aomething unusual. In the third event, one for twenty targets, there were ten men tied for first place, and this number was rcpested In the ninth event, for fifteen birds. In th fourth event there were fourteen of the shooters who had clean scores, and an even doxen tied for first place in the aixth event. In the first event there were six tied for first place, and tn the second the numb-r reached seventeen. There were seven men with clear acores in the fifth and tenth events, eight men at the same point In the eighth race and five men tied far first tn j the seventh. Fifty-one men shot through all events and sixty-seven were at the traps during the day. Fred Gilbert was the high man for the day, his score 'being lf5. He was followed by William Crosby, whose score was 163. Spencer and White were tied for third place on the score for the day, with 162 targets to their credit, and Burns! le was fourth with 160. J. A. R. Elliott, who today will defend the castlron medal chal lenged by Crosby, made a fair showing, but was behind his rival five targets when the day's program closed. State Aanatear Champloashlp, The feature of the day, however, was net the shooting of the men In the regular program of events, but the state amateur championship, in which twenty members of the Nebraska association took part. The shoot began at about 3:30 o'clock and waa finished about Of the twenty entries five men were left to shoot off the tie. that cumber having acored twenty-four targets out of twenty-five. These men were Illion. Dominie, Bray, Morrill and Rogers. Rogers was the first one to miss a target. He missed his secend and fourth, but with that exception the men shot perfectly until tho tenth target wss thrown, when Illion. Domi nie and Bray esch missed a tsrget. leaving Morrill the only man with a clear score. He kept this score clean until the twenty second target, which he missed. In the meantime others had missed more, leaving htm the high man at the time the .twenty fifth bird waa thrown, with a score of twenty-four.

At the close of the program It waa an nounced that the Crosby-Elliott shoot would begin at 2:30 o'clock sharp today and that it win be hurried through aa rap idly as poasible ao that the regular pro gram can be completed.

RUMORS ABOUT TICKET OFFICE It IwTolves Board of Trade Cerarr aad tlrs Railroad Mea Three Stories Are A dost. Commotion existed In the city railroad i offices yesteraay because of a widely disseminated report that some road would move its uptown office Into the Board of Trade building, first floor corner front, at Sixteenth and Farnam streets, as soon as improvements now in progress there art completed. It was said that no lease was yet signed for the place, but that three local railroad offices were vleing with each other for the corner. These were the Chicago, Milwau kee at St. Taul, the Chicago, Rock Island A Pacific and the Wabash. Offlciala In charge at each office named, however, flatly deny that any change on their part ia con templated. The fact remains that George t Co., who handle this building, are apparently fixing the room designated for occupation by a railroad office. Every special arrangement necessary for such a purpose is being made. The firm, however, gays that tt has com pleted no arrangements for occupancy with anyone. Which road will move there is a puzzle. All admit that it Is a most desirable loca tion, with advantages of floor space and square room and two fronts aa well. But the Milwaukee people Insist that they are still after the Mandelberg corner in the Paxton block acroaa the street; the Rock Islsnd officials say they have a two years' lease yet on their present location, and have apent much money on permanent fix tures, while they will shortly spend more on Improvements, so it Is preposterous to think they will move; lastly, the Wabash men say they would like the place, but thai the price ia entirely too steep, and they will not go there. George t Co. have recently approached the Wabafh on the matter. They ask 110,000 for the lease be sides the rent. Four years are yet to run on the lease. As a last stab It waa suggested that the Burlington waa going up there.

MORSMAN WAITING FOR THE BRIDGE Telephone Compaay's neprrsea ta tlve Says lie ' n't lee Wsat Will Be Galurd by tbowlsg ' of Books. Secretary D. H. Goodrich of the street railway company waa surprised when, at 2 yeaterday afternoon, a reporter for The Bee notified him that the supreme court had granted a writ of mandamus, the effect of which would be the summoning of the officers of hla company to appear with their books and records for a re-assessment. "I had beard nothing of it," aald he. "Certainly, we will bring our books and records If the court orders us to do ao. We were all ready to do that the other time, but the referee aaid he didn't want to see the books. However, it will surprise most people to see how little the street railway company Is making." E. M. Morsman, secretary of the Ne braska Telephone company, had heard of the Issuance of the writ, but "wasn't cross ing any bridges until he came to them." He aald: "We are waiting to aee what shape the order will come to us In. and then, if everything is regular, we shall, of course, obey the order of the court. We are already aasessed at our full valuation. I don't aee what the city hopes to gain by bringing our books Into court. Then there a another aide of the question: If the five public service corporations are as sessed too low, how about a hundred other concerns, public and private, of which the aame may be aaid with equal truth? Where ia It going to stop? This is a broader question than appears at first glance." E. M. Fairfield, general manager for the water company, aaid: "There will be no attempt on onr part to evade the order of court, and when we receive notice to ap pear before the board with our books and recorda we'll be there."
