What qualification Khali constitute fit
ness to teach in the Omaha public schools,
ami what tost Khali bp applied to determine
the question of that fitness, are two ques
tions which presented themselves In differ
ent forma to the Board of Education at
the meeting of that body last evening, and,
now that they have been opened, bid (air to
raune some controversy. , Neither of thee
propositions was carried to a ronclualon
at. t h Ik meeting, but In the discussion it
wns apparent that several of the members
are not entirely satisfied with the system
at present In practice and that sooner or
!atcr changes will be proposed.
The ftrxt Intimation ot -thla feeling of
i!liut1facMon cams from Mr. Wood, when
th? committee on teachers and examinations
recommended that leaehera' certificates be
granted to four persona designated by num
bers who had been recommended by the
examining board to reraivo certificates,
Mr. Wood prefaced his remarks with the
ftatemrnt that what he had to say was In
no way pertinent to this report, but as the
report had reminded nlm.- he would with
the indulgence of the board, take this time
to unload something he had to say on the
subject of teachera' .examinations. y
Believe Plas ms' n'raaf.
He thought the present system a mis- I
take, and was convinced that there muBt be
somethlng seriously wrong with it, from
the fact that seven of the candidates who
had taken the last examination had failed,
notwithstanding that they had been gradu-
atrd from the Omaha High school. He be-1
lleved that either the examination must be
too rigid or the plan must be a mistake. I
The discussion became general and several
members of the board expressed their views. I
Mr. Homan thought that the board should
be willing t accept the standard of its own
Institutions, and it was suggested that a
graduate of the High school or the state
normal or state "vnlveralty should be con- I
nldored qualified to teach without being bud-
raltted to a scholarship examination. After
this question had been dlscuseed for some I
time It was dropped without definite action
and the report of the committee waa
adopted. : : I
Later la the proceedings Robert Smith In- I
troduced a: resolution te instruct the presl-
dent and secretary to communicate with tne
board of regents of the state normal school
and request that body to ao modify Its
ourse aa to permit those who had gradu- I
ited from the high, school to receive teach-
era certificates after a one-year course at I
he normal as formerly, instead of requiring
'wo years' attendance as provided tor under
;he present rules. ,"

In moving the reference of the resolution
to a committee suggested that the Omaha
Board Of Education ahould feel aomewhat
aelicate about recommending to an Institu
tion such as the normal school a radical
change in lta course of study and Us rules.
The author of the resolution and several
of the other members thought that after the
full course at the High" school a one-year
course at, the normal was sufficient to suffl-
.'le-ntly -Qualify-a teacher, while Mr. Wood
nd others' believed that It would not be
wise to act hastily In so important a matter.
The resolution was referred to the commit'
:ee On teachers and examinations.

Another matter which created aometblng
of .stir In the board was a resolution by
W. F. Johnson, providing tbat the board
recommend to the incoming legislature that
tho proper steps be taken to provide for
diverting the Income from liquor licenses
and police court and other fines from the
support of the public schools and to pre-
vide for the suDDort of 'the schools hv direct

resolution was referred to the Judiciary
On recommendation of the committee on
teachera and examinations, the board di
rected that night schools be opened In the

A report from the same committee sub
mitting to the board the question of whether
it would be advisable at this time to ap
point a truant officer, raised some discus
sion as to the need of such an officer and
the legal powers ot the bbard to make an

committee to which was referred the In
vestigation of the claim of John Rowe t
Co. on their contract to Install tie beat
ing and ventilating plant at the high school,
requested that the committee be empowered
to, employ an expert at an expense not
greater than $200 to make a more thorough
technical examination than the committee
could make unassisted. Discussion ot tba
resolution brought forth the fact that It Is
the purpose of the committee to bring the
exper from out of the city, that be may bo
some thoroughly unprejudiced person. A
resolution empowering the committee to
employ such an expert was adopted.
A communication was received from John
La tenser, accompanied by affidavits ot eight
members of the grand Jury of the October
term of court, to the effect that John Rowe
had not made such statements before that
Jury as had been reported in a letter from
W. F. Johnson In The Bee of October 12,
1902, as having been made by Mr. Rowe.
The aflldavita were signed by N. C. Denny,
A. A. Nixon. J. W. Austin, John Grant,
Frank Urban, Henry Kbrenpfort, Olat Naa-
lund and John O'Neill. The communloa
tion was placed on file.
When the communication and affidavits
were reel 7. F. Johnson said that at this
time he had no apology or retraction to
make. If he could be convinced that what
Mr. Rowe had stated to him and he had
atated In the board meeting aa coming from
Mr. Rowe was Incorrect, he would apologise
to Mr. Latenser and make every amend In
his power, but yet he waa not convinced
and he still believes Mr. Rowe to be an
honorable and truthful man. He had shown
his letter to The Bee to Mr. Rowe before

that the statements contained In It were

tlv business centers. The board's action

After an hour'a session, to which none
but the members were admitted, the board
brought forth this resolution and adopted
it. In the presence of a few spectators:
Resolved. Thnt the chief of the fire de.
riaxtment be Instructed to report at the next
meeting what nouses can be nest closed so
as to properly divide the lores to protect
all parts or tne city.
Aa a preamble to the resolution there
were a number of whereases, stating that
In order to keep the fire force within the
limits of the funds allowed for the support
of the department lt would be necessary te
reduce the force by about sixty men, and
the reduction must be made by the closing
of the Are houses. Another whereas stated
that the present board had reduced the ex
penditures of the Are department from $11,
000 per month to $9,600, the lowest possible
amount at which the force could be main
taiaed at Its present else.
During a brief discussion of the resolution
the members were unanimous In saying they
did not want to be held Individually respon
sible, should the expenditures of the de
partment exceed the appropriation set apart
for Its maintenance. Chairman Broatch
believed the number of men to be taken off
could be lessened were those left on not
allowed their usual day off every nine days.
He waa ot the same opinion even after
Member Spratlln reminded him that the men
worked twenty-four hours every day and
were certainly entitled to some time tor

"Well, they don't work near as hard as
policemen. They Just have to sit around
most of the time," replied the chairman,

The resignations of F. A. Graham and
Frank McClure ot the fire department were
accepted. Each baa secured more profitable
employment. Frank Trimble waa put on
the regular firemen list.
W. H. Shopp of the police department
made application for another thirty days'
leave ot absence without pay, his present
leave having expired. Mr. Shopp has been
laid up with rheumatism, but the board re
fused to grant him further leave, it having
been reported to them that he was a can
dldate for assessor. A judgment for $41.50
which had been obtained by a boarding
house keeper against Policeman Frank I'r
ban was taken up and the sentiment of the
board waa for Mr. Urban to pay the judg
ment. Several Bremen and policemen were
granted leaves of absence.

who tried to throw several policemen out
of their saloon last Sunday, went over until

At the general committee meeting of yes
terday afternoon the bids for the construc
tion of the central division and west wing
ot the proposed market house recently
opened by the Board of Public Works were
presented in the report of tbat department.
The bid of C. W. Partridge to do the work
for $11,987 was approved aa the lowest and
It was directed by the committee that a
contract with Mr. Partridge hi drawn in
legal form and presented to the council at

Peterson, $15,887; J. H. Wlospear, $16,997;
W. H. Parish $17,200.
The question of the fire department was
discuased In a general way and the members
generally agreed that the department must
not be niduced In any way and tbat some
meana must be found to carry the expenses
of the present force of men until the next
appropriation becomes available. It waa
determined that all possible effort should
be made to Induce the legislature to take
steps at the session this winter to Increase
the Ore department appropriation to $150,-
000, It having been proven that working un
der the limitations of an aproprlatton ot
$125,000 the department has been IsufBc
iently provided and haa had an overlap each
year for a number of years.
The committee approved the ordinance to
open Howard street thirty feet wide from
Twentieth to Twenty-second street, the or

block occupied by the Monmouth Park

The convention was opened at 11:45 by
National President John Finerty, who read
the following addresa:
In a Dnnl Capacity.
We aealn assemble In the dual canacity
of American citizens and aillee of our Irish
kindred to lift up our voices in behalf of
Ireland's tillers of the soli to own the
land they cultivate. Now 6U0O0 Irish hus
bandmen are farmer-proprietors and they
are so becauHe of the labors and sacrifices
of Parnell and Davitt. O'Brtt-n and Dillon.
Blggar and Redmond, who followed in the
track of the pioneers for Irish liberty.
Today there are other Irish patriots, the
brothers and friends of Ireland's delegates
to the convention, wearing the convicts'
clothes and performing hard labor in Irish
Jails, because they have dared to tell the
bngusn prime minister that his rule in
Ireland Is founded on invasion, usurpation,
confiscation and the breach of treaties,
which even savage virtue would have re
spected, but which EnaiiHh Breed and
Jealousy systematically violated.
1 he AnKio-Normans. at the close of the
twelfth century, introduced their foul
feudal system into Ireland. Before they
came the Irish lands were the property
of all the people and were beld in trust
by monarch, prince and chief. But the
invaders did not respect the 'Breton laws,
which governed ancient Ireland, and were
in the main models of wisdom and justice.
On the contrary, they overrode them from
the first and after vanquishing fathers and
brothers in the field, or by traitor methods,
they married the daugntern ty force ana
laid claim to the land which was the
common property of all the Irish people
and not of a favored and privileged few.
Longr aud Persistent Fight.
Ireland did not tamely submit to this
new and violent kind or affairs, lint, as
nlstory tells, has fought long Hnd persist
ently for liberty. The Anglo-Norman feudal
system was paramount in Ireland until
Parnell. supported by the Land league, of
which the United Irish league la the lineal
successor, made a breach In ita brazen
shield. Catholics and Protestants alike
were persecuted and the outrages forced
them to emigrate to the American colonies,

official representative:: of Its own servants,
which show that Ireland has today a
smaller population than lt had In and
that within the last sixty years 1,250.000 of
its people starved to death, more than 2,000,
0ii were evicted from their holdings and
4.000,000 at least sought refuge from British
tyranny In this and other free countries. A
government, whether native or foreign,
that could and can find no remedy for this
wholesale destruction of an ancient and
highly endowed people has no right to
exist. It has sinned against the beneficence
of Ood and the Inherent rights of mankind.
To End an Iniquity.
Under more favorable conditions the Irish
people would be entirely Justified In resort
iiiK to arms to end thin huge iniquity.
Rlfht and Justice are on their side and
present opportunity alone Is wanting. Wltn
a powerful ally to furnish it with the
nucleus of an army and with the munitions
of war, Ireland, by putting our abl?-bndied
men in the field, could win its independence,
but without such an ally nothing short of a
miracle could render It victorious. The
men upon Irish ground are the men to de
cide the policy of their country. So long
as they keep the green flag flying and make
no compromise of their right to be free awl
independent, the American kinsmen are
and will be their allies and auxiliaries.
Ireland must fight England with such
weapons as it has ready. It must not sub
mit to be extinguished while waiting an
oi.portunlty o strike. It is threatned with
one great and pressing danger extinction
As its manufactures, except in the line
of linen and a few other staples, are
almost destroyed by English competition,
which has every advantage that wealth,
plant and skill can give, its young people
are in a great measure cut off from skilled
labor pursuits and agriculture Is the only
other alternative of employment. The best
lands of Ireland are held by alien end
absentee landlords. The worst are occupied
by the tillers of the soli. Between these
two classes there Is an "irrepressible con
flict." Terms of Settlement.
The Irish landlords are offered a settle
ment tantamount to forty years' rental for
toe lands they hold, In general, by the law
of conquest or ine process ni connscaiion.
These lands belong by hereditary right to
the Irish peoule, out the Irlevh peopla do
not ask for a new confiscation, but for
condemnation and purchase by loan on
terms of easy repayment. W hen. Instead of
60.UH0, 600.UUO heads of tenant Irish families
become proprietors a tourniquet win have
been appllnd to the bleeding arteries of
Ireland. The) young people, the pride and
flower of their country, will remain at
home and beneath the genial skies of their
native land make Its fertile soil bloosom
as a rose. And with prosperity will come
llbertv, its hand maiden.
England Itself must be growing tired of
the cruel Irish landlords, whom It upholds
by its sheriffs and its soldiers.. Balfour
and Wyndham are making a last effort
In behalf of their clients, the landlords.
They have dug up the gaunt and ghastly
remains of old Edward I, "the hammer of
the Scotch." and with this rusty, rotten
old "hammer" they are attempting to put
down the United Irish league. They have
hammered a dozen Irish members of Parlia
ment and about 300 local leaders into Jail.
Object, of Meeting;.
The meeting today, said President Fin
erty, was to express the sentiments of the
American-Irish on the Irish question and
to welcome Ireland's chief and his fellow
delegates. A year haa not yet elapsed
since the United Irish League of America
was temporarily organized. In spite ot
senseless opposition in some quarters and
apathy in others it has Increased and
multiplied throughout the American con
tinent and has furnished the true men
In Ireland with a respectable amount of
the sinews of war to carry on in a manly
manner the noble struggle for land and lib

Catholics ot the south have Joined hands

J. P. Martin of Baltimore and Mr. P.
Shelly O'Ryan of Chicago, also national I
