Christian Church Eircntlve Commit
tee Ready to Dispose of
At a meeting of the executive committee
of the Christian church convention com
mittee at Council Bluffs Thursday It was
decided to close with several persons for
concessions at the Coliseum. There will
be maintained at the building a restaurant,
barber shop, bootblack stand, news depot
aud place for tho sale of souvenirs of the
occasion. These places will be controlled
by persons who are licensed by the local
committee and a percentage of the salea
will go to the convention funds or the con
cessions will be sold outright.
It was decided by the committee to hold
but one more union meeting of the gen
eral church committee. This meeting will
be held on some Sunday between now and
the opening of the convention and will be
devoted to prayer for the success of the
oonvention and thanksgiving fnr the work
already done. The executive committee
will hold sessions as usual.
The chairman of the entertainment com
mittee reports that she has been well re
ceived by the people of the city with whom
ahe has conferred regarding the entertain
ment of delegates' to the convention. Many
of those having large houses have placed
their extra rooms at the service of the
delegates and have refused to receive com
pensation for their use. Others have fixed
prices which were wholly inadequate for
the aarvlcs, so that It is expected that
there will be no trouble In providing
houses for the visitors.
The committee Is now In, doubt aa to the
future of the Omaha Christian, a weekly
publication started as the official organ
of the convention. There have been some
Who desired to have it made a permanent
publication of the church and a committee,
consisting of Dr. Slabaugh of South Omaha,
Judge Slabaugh of Omaha and Rev. W. D.
Crewdson of Council Bluffs, was. appointed
to consider the matter and make recom
mendation to the general committee.
WORK AT THE FAIR GROUNDS

Necessary to Build Addi
The street fair grounds In the neighbor
hood of Douglas and Seventeenth streets
are beginning to assume form. The grounds
re now enclosed and a number of those
having concessions are putting thetr tents
and temporary buildings In shape.
The local merchants, manufacturers and
Jobbers are taking advantage of the fair
to advertise their business. All but twelve
of the booths set aside for Industrial pur
poses have been leased and it Is expected
that more will have to be constructed to
accommodate all who desire to make dis
play. There Is some delay in sending out the
souvenirs and invitations to the grand ball.
It was expected that a large part of them
would be mailed Friday, but they have not
been delivered by the maker at this time
nd will not be sent out until Monday.

Tst Commissioner Isaacs t'lrcalar
Pertalalasr to Aearaaanent of
Tax Commissioner Fleming has Just Is
sued a circular for the Instruction of his
assessors and the information of the tax-
paying public generally, which Indicates
pointedly that In the pending assessment
of personal property particular attention Is
to be given to bank accounts, mortgages
and other securities which are enumerated
under divisions 26 to 29 of the sssesement
schedules, and to all of those other classes
of personal property which ordinarily
either escape taxation or are listed at much
less than their real value. In connection
with the brief statement above as to those
items of the schedule which are referred to
only by number the circular is self-explanatory
and reads as follows:

Fourth The returns on diamonds,

last night had an experience with a gentle
manly highwayman, who, with the exception
of making Hlgby 's hair stand on end for
several minutes, did him no harm. Hlgby
was on his way home shortly before 11
o'clock and was at Thirty-fourth and Leav
enworth when the incident occurred. The
highwayman, with a handkerchief over his
face and a revolver in his hand, stepped
from a shadow.
"Hands up!" he commanded, as he shoved
the revolver close to Hlgby's face. Hlgby's
hands went up. Then the highwayman
searched Hlgby's pockets and discovered
In the corner of one of them one lone
nickel hovering deep In the pocket, as
though in tear. When be bad assured him
self that the nickel waa all the money Hlgby
had, he looked at It for a few minutes and

man, take It back; you need It worse than
I do." And Hlgby took it

Not only for the amount of money In

transaction regarded with special signifi

prompted by the conviction on the part of
the Burlington management that before a

convenient hauling distance would be ab
sorbed by a gigantic trust. The Burling
ton has therefore taken time by the forelock
in thus securing possession of bituminous
fields, in order that it may be absolutely
Independent of the trust, when its appre
hension may have been realized. It was
regarded as even more profitable by the ex

submitted Its proposition to buy new and
