waiting the acceptance or refusal of Wil

partment atore. The franchise waa granted
yeat. relay by Commissioners Ostrom,
O'Keeffe, Connolly and Harte, the fifth
member of the board, Hofcldt, being ao
buay with hla political fenres in the coun
try diatricta that he hasn't been at th4
court bouse for several daya and could noi
attend this morning's meeting.
Chaoses Hayrien'a I'ropoiKlon,
Mr. Hayden filed bin first request with
the board two weeks ago, and It was hinted
that the $1,000,000 capital required bad been
offered him while he waa In Boston and
New York a month or more ago, and that
be could begin building Inside of a year.
The board seemed receptive and so he filed,
a few days since, a blank franchise for Its
approval. In this, however, he asked five
years from January 1, 1904, In which to get
Ave miles of road Into operation and to
this clause Commissioner Ostrom objected,
arguing that the time was needlessly long.
The commissioner proposed drawing up a
new franchise, and this was done. In It the
date of getting five miles of road Into oper
ation was brought one year nearer; Hay
den or his assigns are required to provldo
thirty-two-foot crossings wherever the
lines cross roads; are required to use only
good material; are required to bear the ad
ditional outlay for bridge work; are re
quired to maintain continuous operation of
ears, and are made to agree that the price
of the franchise alone shall be but $1 In
case the county should In future desire to
purchase the property. None of these stip
ulations were In the franchise proposed by
Ho it tar Resolatlon Reads.

Then are given the stipulations, with the

Omaha Psplla Not Concerned la Ttto.
Year Arrangement at Nor
W. R. Homan baa received letter from
W. A. Clark, bead of the state normal
school at Peru. In which the writer en
deavors to make plain the action of tho
regents In changing the course of study
there. The letter refers to the action of
the Omaha Board of Education In asking
that the one-year course be restored, ao
that graduates of the Omaha High school
may obtain a diploma from the normal
school ns In previous years.
Mr. Clark ssys that ao far as the one
year course la concerned there has been
no change, except the substitution of In
struction and practical demonstrations In
pedagogy for the "practice teaching"
which previously existed, and that this
change has been made by all of the leading
normal schools of the country. He fur
ther says that a two-years' course has
been provided for pupils from schools other
than a half dozen In the state, Including
Omaha, where the standard is high, and
this Increased length of term la for the
purpose of giving the graduates of the
smaller schools more practical work and
drill In English branches. He says the
pupils from Omaha are taking hold of the
work in first rate shape and that by fol
lowing the one-year course they will bs
found fully equal to their predecessors.
Mr. Clark takes kindly to the idea ad
vanced by Mr. Homan of making a diploma
from the state normal sufficient warrant
for the employment of teachers in tho
graded schools of Omaha without prelimin
ary examination, and says that such a
course probably would strengthen the
school, as well as Improve the quality of
teachers which may be secured by Omaha.
CUTS DOWN TEACHING FORCE
One Room Is Closed at Each of
Six of the Pnbllo School
Six rooms in as many different schools
have been closed by the Board of Educa
tion within two weeks, the last closing
being ordered Monday evening at a ses
sion of the teachers' committee. By the
order one room is closed in each the Far
nam, Cass and Saunders schools. A week
ago one was closed at each tho Pacific,
Windsor and Lincoln schools. By this
action there are thrown out of employment
six teachers and the salaries of the princi
pals of the schools In question are reduced
15 per month. A member of ths teachers'
"The rooms were closed because there
is falling off in the attendance, which
makes it possible te accommodate the
pupils in the smaller space. It is Im
possible to give any one reason i for the
smaller attendance which will apply In all
cases. In some instances it represents
the removal of families from the wards in
which the schools are located, and there
is an Increase in the attendance of some
of the other schools. In other oases there

from the city, as a large number of former
employes of the Union Pacific shops have
left town, seeking work in other places.

Whereas, The report Is generally believed
to be true, and there are evidences pointing
to such an attempt to violate the sanctity

Commissioners of Douglas county. Neb.,
Resolved, That all persons not legally en

the provisions of the election law and all
law-abiding citizens are urged to give their
personal attention to this matter and to

In protecting the purity of the ballot box

The managers of ths Mercer campaign
are getting ready for the last day of regis
tration and have apparently decided that
the "scabs" employed at the Union Pacific
shops would look better living at other
places. Monday there was a considerable
exodus from the temporary boarding bouse
conducted by the company. Seventeen ot
the strike breakers were removed to the
State hotel and eleven of them to the Met
ropolitan hotel, while, it Is understood,
others went to other boarding houses In
the Third ward.
The strikers' pickets lost no time In
locating the breakers and In discovering
the names of those who removed for the
purpose of acquiring residence outside of
the Union Paclnc yards. Members of the
strikers' committee were yesterday
making arrangements to take photographs
of the strike breakers who have moved to
the hotels, for the purpose ot identifying
them on election day and thus preventing
them from repeating at the polls.
"The men seem to be making more money
loafing than they were working," said a
member of the strikers' picket torce."
They are keeping close around ths hotel
snd do not seem to be reporting at the
shops at all. We have spotted every one
of them and know that some of them
came from the east, while others may have
been residents of ths stats before tbey
cams to Omaha."
The question ot the legality of ths rest
denes which may be acquired b strike
breakers by reason of their living at the
Union Pacific shops has been ralijd. and It
Is argued that the boarding house opened
by ths company at the (hops Is not such a
place as may be legally termed a place ot
residence under the Nebraska atatuts. So
far as tha married men residing at ths
shops ara concerned It Is certain that they
could not acquire susa residence, as Us

BURT HAS NOTHING TO SAY
Refuses to Discuss Report that Deuel is to
DENVER MAN NOT CONSIDERED LIKELY
Some Who Are Familiar with ITnioa
Faelfla Affairs Expect to Bee Posi
tion of General Manacer
"I havs nothing whatever to say upon
This was the answer of President Burt of
the Union Pacific when asked If William A.
Deuel, superintendent ot the Colorado
division of that road, was to be made gen
eral manager to succeed Edward Dickinson.
The report originated In ' Denver and
arouses little Interest here, as no one who
pretends to have any knowledge of these
affairs believes that Mr. Deuel will be ele
vated to this position. The rumor Is gen
erally discredited at Union Paclflo bead
quarters by those officials who will venturo
an opinion on the subject. Mr. Deuel Is a
popular man and regarded as a good rail
roader, but he Is not one of the Burt favor
ites and Is, on the other hand, distinctly
recognized as a Dickinson man, and it has
been generally conceded that no such man
will be asked to till the place vacated by
The report which comes from Denver Is
to the effect that Deuel is slated for the
general management and that private ad
vices from Omaha state that this appoint
ment has been positively decided upon.
Mr. Burt read these words carefully when
the report was handed to him and then
passed the slip of paper back with the
remark already attributed to him. No
significance of any kind can be drawn from
the president's treatment of the matter, for
since the day that Mr. Dickinson's resigna
tion was first mooted, Mr. Burt has main
tained the same stolid, silent Indifference,
remarking. If condescending to speak at
all: "I have nothing whatever to say upon
Remark Not Blarnlacaat.
It is not probable, therefore, that his
refusaLio deny or confirm this latest re
port, signifies anything either way. The
only semblance of significance which could
be gathered from the president's office
came from a remark dropped by his secre
tary, T. M. Orr, who said to a reporter
for The Bee:
"I don't think you need be concerned
over the possibility of advices being sent
abroad, for there really Is nothing to be
given out on this matter now."
The Deuel story Is believed to bave
been given circulation by frlenda ot Mr.
Deuel, who are anxious to see him get the
place, Just as friends of W. L. Park of
Cheyenne ars agitating his candidacy. It
would not be surprising if every important
city on the Union Pacific had Its candidate.
J. O. BrlnkerhoS of Kansas City, who
holds the same position on the Kansas
division as do Deuel and Park on the Colo
rado and Wyoming, has been spoken ot In
connection with the office, and yet thers
Is no evidence that be Is In line for it.
Ths most popular theory la Omaha re
garding this matter Is that Mr. Dickinson's
place will not be filled for soms time. It
is thought that a desirable man could not
be Induced to step Into the c3ce now dur
ing the pendency of this strike, which
naturally has a tendency to complicate the
functions ot the general manager.
Office May Be Abolished.
The fact that the province of this official
on ths Union Pacific has been so restricted
as not to extend beyond the limits ot ths
operating department, lends strength to
this theory. In the minds of many It even
suggests the possibility of abolishing the
office ot general manager, which under tha
conditions, they consider a misnomer and
substituts instead that of general superin
tendent. Ths question has been asked, la can-

never drank a finer whiskey than the
brand which bears his name. It comes
