Objection to Locating Library There Com
from Mhit 8onrcs.
PARK BOARD UNALTERABLY OPPOSED
Pusey Property Looked I pno with
Mark Favor and Itstement la Made
It Can Br Feeured, Though
Owners Prefer to Keep It.
The Board of Library Trustee has aban
joned all Idea of erecting the public II-
brary building, made po.s.ble by the mu
nlficence of Andrew Carnegie, In the center
of flnyllsa park. This was the statement
made yesterday afternoon by President
. ,lh. . . ,, DK.
Rohrer of the library board. Mr. Rohrer
stated that the board realized that the
public would not permit the use of the
park for the building and that It waa very
doubtful If under the terms of the gift of
the property to the city the park could be
utilized for sued a purpose.
There Is also another serlou's stumbling
block to the building being erected in the
renter of the park and this Is the refusal
of the Board of Park Commissioners to
consent to It. Park Commissioner Graham,
who asserted he spoke with authority from
the other two members of the board, stated
yesterday that the board would not for a
single moment even consider such a propo
rtion. Mr. Graham said the property had
been deeded to the city for a park on the
express conditions that it be used as such,

W. H. Pusry would net seriously object to
part with the property In the event of the
library board deciding to build the library
there. A member of the family when seen
yesterday stated that while Mrs. Pusey
would be loath to part with the property,
U,i DOt P,aCP nn obstacles in
way, realizliiR the fnct the law gave the
library board the power to condemn any
property it might deem suitable for a site
for such a purpose. The property. It Is
urged, has an ample frontage on Pearl
street nnd Willow avenue and that the site
would b the most accessible from all parts
of tho city.
It a said yesterday that the property
could probably -be secured for a sum within
tho amount appropriated by the library
board for a a!to for a building.

The rtatement has been widely published
In correspondence sent from Des Moines
that tho legislature which Is to be elected
thla year Is likely to have the choosing of
a Vnited States senator. If this were true
a aenatorlal conflict might be stsrted at
once. But this was on the assumption that
the biennial elections amendments will
carry and there will be no election of a
legislature In 1905 and no legislature until
after the expiration of Senator Dolllver's
term. This Is not the case. The biennial
election amendment, which. Is pretty urs
to be carried, will necessitate two session
of the legislature elected this year, tut
another legislature will be elected and will
meet three month before the expiration of
the present term of Senator Dolliver.

This declaration by Commissioner Con
nolly at yesterday morning's meeting of thn
county board Indicates the amicable and
harmonious spirit In which the demotrstlo
members enter upon the work of 1903. It
was a retort to the protest of O'Keeffo
against the Immediate adoption of a resolu
tion ordering Robert Z. Drake, bridge con
tractor, to lengthen two county bridges, one
two miles northeast of Valley and tho other
six miles below KIkhorn.
When the resolution was Introduced
O'KeefTe tried to have Its adoption delayed
a week, but Harte said the bridge con
tractor had his plledrlver near there and
ought to be allowed to go ahead with thn
work. O'KeefTe answered It wa peculiar
the board had not discovered the work was
Imperative until the contractor got there
with his machinery and called attention to
it. Ho said when the board had Inspected
the location It had favored filling? Instead
of lengthening the bridges. Connolly said
the board members had not all so expressed
themselves at that time, but had quietly
"let O'Keeffo have his own way until time
to build," and that to move dirt tor filling
would cost 25 cents per yard.
Nome Kndearlnsr Terms. ,
O'KeefTe said he would take the contract
for moving it at 20 cents per yard and pay
for the bridge if ha lost money on It. There
were other endearing remark, including
Connolly" reference to the brass collar,
and then a vote was taken. McDonald
passed, but later voted with the other for
adoption, O'Keeffe's being the only negative.
"Are there any other resolutions?" Chair-,
man Hofeldt Inquired.
O'Keeffo marched to the desk and de
posited a slip, remarking: "Yes, I've got
one, but It's nothing to do with bridges.
It's to make Dr. W. S. White of South
Omaha assistant county physician at hi

There was read and referred to the com
mittee on court house and Jail, with power
to act, the request of Judge W. W. 81a
baugh that court room No. 3, which he oc
cupies, be painted. O'KeefTe raised objec
tion to this course, declaring bids should
be advertised for. Harte, who Is chairman
of the committee, said he would have va
rious painters make estimates, but that
there is not time now to advertise snd get
the work done before the new term opens
rebruary 2. O'KeefTe thought It strange
that the matter should demand such imme
diate attention on such short notice when
the application could have been filed weeks
ago and said that the county had paid $600
for painting one room without bids being
submitted, whereas one of about the same
size right across the hall bad been painted
