Indebtednese of the city were authorised
by the city council In an ordinance passed
at the meeting of last etenlng. Thli or
dinance takes the place of one which was
peeked by the council, but waa later found
to be technically defective as to title and
waa therefore vetoed by Acting Mayor
The proposition of the Omaha Realty
company for the settlement of taxes now
In litigation was returned by the Judiciary
committee with a report to the effect that
the committee had rejected the offer of
the company an Insufficient, but with the
assistance of the city legal department
had effected an agreement whereby the
company would pay ita general taies In full
with the exception of those of 1902 and
Ita special taxes, less a discount of $19,000.
The Indebtedness la question Involves a
large number of parcels of land owned by
the Omaha Realty company and Includes, as
ahown In the report of the committee,
principal and Interest of regular taxes
amounting In the aggregate to $14,886; and
principal and Interest of special assess
ments amounting In the aggregate to $33,
778.73. The company bad proposed to pay
to the city In settleavnt In full the
amount of $20,891.45, setting foith aa an
argument In favor of the acceptance of the
offer that many of the apeclal aasessments
bad already been Invalidated by the courts
or would be It put to the test, and the
um named waa probably more than the
city could collect by process of law. The
committee rejected that basis of settlement,
but recognizing that many of the special
assessments were faulty in law made the
concession of $19,000, as above stated. An
ordinance providing for settlement aa
recommended by the committee was given
Ita first and second reading.
Opening- Thirty-Fifth Street. f
The ordinance ordering the opening of
Thirty-fifth street, fifty feet wide, from
Farnam to Harney street, waa given Its

appropriation of $15,000 for a market house
waa resumed, and nearly every member

Speaker from Headqonrters of Na

Sandwiched between music by two col

dates, A. C. Rankin of Pittaburg. Pa., sent
out by the republican national congressional
committee, delivered an address of two
hours and fifteen minutes on national la
aues at a meeting of republtcana of the
Eighth ward last night.
Congressman Mercer arrived at the hall
at 9:45 o'clock and after the address cf
the evening he did the glad-hand act. A
W. Jefferla, candidate for county attorney,
waa also present, but did not speak.
Mr, Rankin discussed the tariff, the

unlike the democrats, did not endorse a
proposition one campaign and condemn It
the next. He placed the blame for the
formation of trusts and their growth In
the country at the hands of the democrats.
"Trusts bad their Inception during the
laat democratic administration." he said,
"and their formation was due to the condi
tion of the Industries of the country at
that time. Those business men, proprie
tors of factories, who survived the hard
times brought about by the mismanage
ment of the affaire of the country by the
democrats. Joined together to prevent a
repetition of this, and to prevent the cut
ting of throats by each other In order to
get rid of their products, which wss neces
sary for them to do to be saved under
the Cleveland administration. The demo
crats promised to make laws to govern
the trusts when they were given power,
but they did nothing."
In concluding his discussion of the trusts
Mr. Rankin stated that the republican
party would handle the question and would
do It In a way that would result in good
for the country. "They will not do It
with a free tariff." he said, "for the tariff
la not responsible for tho trusts." The
spesker was frequently Interrupted by ap
plause and at the conclusion of tho ad
dross thoRe present were Introduced to him.
Mr. Rankin was at one time the head
of the Federation of Labor In Pittsburg
and during the '70s was an Iron molder
under Captain Webb, now of the secret
service, stationed here.

you. but no Intimation of the possibility
of a change In the president's plans was
alven in that message. '
"I regret," said the senator, "that the
president Is not to come to Omaha, for bU
presence here has been, looked forward to
with great pleasure ny tne people oi Ne
braska, and they will be sorely disappointed
I regret also that It has been necessary for
the president to submit to tin operation, al
though I understand that It was successfully
performed and that no 111 effects are likely
to ensue. With the president with us
Omaha would have had a great day Satur
day, a bigger day probably than It ever
had. Of course the Ak-Sar-Ben festlvat
will go on and with favorable weather there
will be great crowds In the city during the
carnival season, but we lose tho great big
day on account of the Inability of the pres
ldent to come here."
Senator Millard had nothing to say In re
gard to calling off the arrangements that
have been made at other NcbraRka cities for
the president's reception. "I suppose," said
he, "that there will be nothing to do but
to wear out our disappointment the best we
can. The local committees will undoubtedly
stop right where they are with their af
fairs." Omaha Clob Waa All .Ready.
President Peck of the Omaha club said:
"We had turned the club over to the pres
ident and his party upon the request ef th.
board of governors. Our arrangements were
all complete and the news Is disconcerting
In the extreme. I cannot tell what will be
done, aa the matter Is entirely within the
control of the board."
Probably the man most affected by tho
news was Steward Pryor of th? Omaha club.
For three weeks he has been at work on
the arrangements for the banquet. Th
markets of the country have been ran
sacked to secure the best to be had In tho
way of food and beverages. Some had been
difficult to secure, but Monday night the
worry of the steward had ended. He had
succeeded In securing the things he desired
nd In hla mind there was no reerst. The
delicacies which could not be purchased In
Omaha had been shipped so as to arrive
tMa morning. The cooks had received their
Instructions and !n btr' mind's eye the
teward saw' spread before the chief execu
tive of the country and his party the most
complete banquet ever served In the city.
Then came the cancellation of the engage
ment. All the work has gone for naught so
far aa the president 1s concerned. Th?
teward Is a disappointed man and It will
require time to restore his Injured frel'njs.
Railway Rates Will Stand.
Railway passenger officials were unable to
say last night much that was definite con
cerning the probable effect on railroad rates
of the abandonment of President Roosevelt's
visit. It will doubtless affect them to some
extent, but everything that Is done will be
unanimous, all the railroads acting in con
cert. To thia end representatives of the
various lines will meet this morning snd de
termine all action in the matter.
The fact that only three days now re
main before the expected data of the visit
makes any aweeping change -of the ratea
almost Impossible. The flat rate reductions
have all been advertised, and will doubtless
(and. In the case of special parties and
special trains, however, the effect will be
felt. Most of these will be called off, at
least for that date.
Sonth Omaha Troopers Sorry.
Members of the South Omaha troop of
cavalry are among those who are greatly
disappointed by the turn affairs have taken.
Captain W. L. Holland had been asked by
the Board of Governors to turn out his men
to act aa escort for the president. Cap
tain Holland accepted, and his troopers
were eager to respond, as It would be
their first public appearance, and they
were anxious for the opportunity to figure
in such an Important spectacle.
It la probable that the troop will take
part in the great daylight parade on
Wednesday next. Captain Holland has been
asked to turn out hla men . on that dsy.
but la unable to give a. positive answer
to the Invitation yet. He favors it. though,
and Is of the opinion, that he wil be able
to get his entire command to Join In the
demonstration on Wednesday afternoon.
To the Citizens of Omaha During the
next two weeks Omaha Is to be the center
of attraction for the people- of the trans-
mlsalsslppi region and many thousands of
visitors will be In our city.
It is the desire of every loyal cltlien
that Omaha ahall show herself to the best
advantage during the Ak-Sar-Ben festlvl
ties soon to open and particularly during
the time that President Roosevelt is In our
city. Let every person feel that It Is his
duty to show his loyalty to the city la some
effective way. I particularly request that
the residences, stores, factories and other
buildings along the route to be taken by
the presidential party and by the AkSar
Ben parades be decorated,, with flags and
bunting and be Illuminated In honor ct the
president. City permits will be Issued
without charge to those desiring to use
On Wednesday, October 1. la to occur the

Board of Oovernors of the Knights of Ak-

THE OMAHA DAILY
AFFAIRS AT SOUTH OMAHA
Talk ef Forciag County Attorney to Preie-
cuts Bsloen Law Vislaters.
FORMAL DEMANDS TO BE SERVED ON HIM
Assistant County Attorney Credited
with All Work Done Ip to rreeeot
and People Become Dis
pleased with Affairs.
It was stated yesterdny that formal de
mands would be served upon the county
attorney to appear In the police court of
South Omaha on September 29 and prosecute
all of the men who have been arrestel
during the laat two months, charged with
violations of the saloon laws of the state.
All complaints now on file have been
drawn by Assistant City Attorney Cohn
snd the cases, up to this time, have been
looked after by him. Twice have the casej
been set for trial and at each time con
tinuances have been secured by the saloon
men on one pretext or another. Now that
the cases are about to be reached for final
determination, the legal department of tho
city docs not seem to be in the least anx
ious to have the whole responsibility of
a successful prosecution rest upon Its
shoulders, but says that all honors should
be divided with the office from which the
prosecutor ehould come. This office, . It
claims. Is that of the county attorney.
City Attorney Murdock Is said to favor
the calling In of the county attorney. The
only reason assigned for this action la the
fact that the prosecutions sre claimed to
be really without the Jurisdiction of case
to be prosecuted by the assistant city at
torney, and If the cases should be ap
Dealed to the district court. It would then
undoubtedly become the absolute duty of
tho county attorney to prosecute them in
that court. Having this In mind, the legal
department seems to feel that If any ob
jections ehould be raised against the word
ins: of the complaints In the higher court. It
would come In for Its share of censure, and
desires to avoid this by having the approval
of the county attorney on the form of the
complalnta filed in the police court.
Members of the Anti-Saloon lesgue stated
yesterday that they approved of the action
of tho city attorney in asking the county
attorney to prosecute these saloon cases.
Some of them stated that the county at
torney has been requested to prosecute sa
loon men In South Omaha for violation of
the liquor laws, but that nothing ever
came of such demands. The outcome of
the present demand by the eity attorney is
watched with interest.
School Tronble Vnchansred.
There Is no change In the situation of
the troubles brewing in the different
schools of the city. Other than the Inde
pendent action of the South Omaha police
In endeavoring to arrest the parties con
nected with the outrage at the West 8lde
school, nothing is being done. The Board
of Education seems to Ignore the trouble
both at the West Side and at Lowell, and
s taking no ateps to stop the different
acts of lawlessness said to ! continually
going on In those schools. Certain mem
bers of the board, when asked yesterday
what action the board would take, went so
far aa to lay the blame on teachers, say
ing that It waa their duty, and not the
duty of the Board of Education, to put a
atop to this alleged lawlessness.
Aeanult Officer Ttnamnasen.
Complaints were yesterday morning filed
the police court against Henry Bel-
heimer, Timothy Lloyd, Dan Donovan and
Charles Southerland, charging them with
having, assaulted Officer Anton Rasmussen
qn Monday, night. .It seems that while
Rasmussen was attempting to arrest Dono
van, the other three pitched In and not
only captured the prisoner, but tore away
the officer's club and one of them stole
hla revolver. They were charged with
assault and battery and resisting an of
ficer. Lloyd and Donovan both pleaded
guilty and were given heavy fines, but Bel
hetmer stated that he would stand trial,
which was set for next Friday morning.
Southerland has not yet been arrested.
Additional Letter Carrlera.
It was announced yesterday at the South
Omaha postofflce that three additional car
riers would be employed here. For some
time there has been much objection over
the overworked condition of the different
carriers In the city and a great effort has
been made to secure additional carriers.
Postmaster Etter has, In response to his
application, received Instructions to em
ploy three additional carrlera. Two of
these will be put to work on the delivery
route In the business portion of the city,
while one will act as a collector. There
Is a continual Increase In the mall re
ceipts at South Omaha, which, if It con
tinues, probably will necessitate another
addition to the present force. The routes
of several well known carriers may be
changed In October 1, whin the additional
force goes on duty.
Kaln on a Rampnare.
Mike Kaln was yesterday afternoon ar
rested and lodged in Jail, charged with
drunkenness, disorderly conduct and as
sault and battery. Kaln'a father, a con
stable, started to tako the young man to
jail, but getting the worst of the argu
ment, called to hla assistance a police
man, and together they finally succeeded
In getting the youth to the bastile. A
complaint was filed against him last even-
lpg by T. T. Munger, charging him with
beating young Floyd Munger in a horrible
manner. Kaln was locked In a solitary
cell, as he waa still In a violent frame of
mind Isst evening.
!Vo Heat at Schools.
Parents of school children are register
ing a rigid complaint over the fact that
the different school buildings of the city
are so Inadequately heated that seversl
severe cases of sickness have resulted.
For she most part the rooma are damp.
owing to the fact that they have now been
closed tor several months. It Is said that
the worst trouble of this kind is at the
High school, where, K Is said, but little
effort Is made to provide the building with

g as much progress along certain lines
of work and even more in some than before
the strike began," he continued.
To sustain his point some records of the
ork done In Omaha shops and one or two
others were disclosed. According to these
records five engines were turned out of the
looal shops last week, thoroughly repaired
nd ready for use. Anticipating upon the
basis of what has already been done this
month It was shown that during the entire
onth of September there will be turned
out from the local shops between eighteen
nd twenty engines generally repaired. This

Itlons, this official states, by about half a
doxen, the ordinary month'a output being
from twelve to fifteen engines.
On the whole system a total of sixteen

Intention of obeying what seemed to them
ths legal and reasonable provisions of this
Injunction, but as frankly stated that
there were certain restrictions upon their
conduct and methods which they would
Ignore and this policy has been pretty
generally adhered to. The picket line has
been maintained, but not nearer the com

ctins nave been sent out as usual and the
strike leaders have not ceased to give out
interviews or statements for publication
since the Issuance of the Baldwin In
unction, but there has been an evident In
tention and effort to abstain from demon
strative talk or conduct. Thus the 143
men effected by this Judicial decree feel
satisfied, as the time of hearing ap
proaches, with their conduct in the light
of the edict and say they will go Into
court serenely confident of establishing
their side of the case.
It Is understood that the Union Pacific
will endeavor to make much of the per

usually heavy defections that have oc
curred in the shop forces as an evident re

that fully 100 men have left the sh0D3

LATTER RETURNS TO TELL ON SNYDER
Can tilve Details of Alleged Xeatotla
tlon to Iluy Ills Vote on Central
Traction Hill and of Subse
qacnt Confidence Game.
ST. LOUIS, Sept. :3. Former Councilman
Frederick O. Uthoff, who, It Is said, wsb
"buncoed" out of Mj.OOO of $30,000 alleged
to have been received for his voto on the
Central Traction bill from R. M. Snyder
of Kansas City, has returned from Colo
rado to testify at Snyder's trial next Mon
day, and was in conference with Circuit
Attorney Folk thia afternoon. It is believed
that Uthoffs return Is second in Impor
tance only to the return of John K. Mur
rell and that his revelations may render
unnecessary tho testimony of Fugitive
Charles F. Kellyj who la wanted by the
state sa a witness against certain million
aire brlbe-glvers in the city lighting bill
legislation. Circuit Attorney Folk Is si
lent on the result of the conference. Uthoff,
who has been In Colorado the last six
months attending to mining Interests, is
a most Important witness for the state In
the coming trial of H. M. Snyder.
Uthoff. it Is said, received $50,000 from
Snyder for his vote for the Central Trac
tion bill. His name was last on the coun
cil list, and his voto was tho deriding one.
It passed the bill, which made possible
the consolidation of the street car system.
Later, Snyder, Jtr is said, borrowed $45,000
from Uthoff and went to New York, whence
Uthoff fallowed hlra. There Snyder In
duced Uthoff to sign an agreement by
which he accepted $5,000 and denied that
any offer of bribery had been made. Uthoff
came back to St. Louis with his $3,000
and Snyder remained in New York with
Snyder's Fatal Mlatake.
His remaining there made It possible for
him to be Indicted for bribery after the
three years, owing to a statutory provision
extending the statute of limitations In
case of nonresldence In the state. Last
winter, when the bribery cases were first
brought tinder investigation, Uthoff went
before the grand Jury and testified. It
was supposed then that he had made
