It was talked on the streets yesterday that Mayor Adams would refuse to appoint the board. The mayor may refuse and he may not refuse. Teaterday he said that ha had given the matter no thought and In fact he had not Ten read the bill through. A member of the Lancaster county dele gation, who doea not live In Lincoln, waa taken to taak this morning by a cltlien for allowing the bill to become a law. He ex plained that the Lincoln member of the delegation said the town wanted It and therefore, as no one had objected, he had supported the bill. If the mayor doea ap point the board the council can prevent It working by refusing to appropriate the Salaries of the members, and aome of the eltlaens at least will use their Influence with the council to get It to refuse the appropriation. The bill waa Introduced In the legisla ture at the request of members of the plumbers' union. It Is said to be the same law that applies to the city of Omaha. It provides for the appointment of ths health officer, the plumbing Inspector, a Journey man plumber and a master plumber as the Inspection board.

Gives His Own Experience as aa Em ploye la the Railroad Shops Coalda't Afford to be sick. Mr. A. C. Holmes, of Oneonta, N. T., an employe of the railroad ahops at that place. Is well known In labor circles and his own experience, recently related, de serves the attention of every working man who has lost time and money on ac count of sickness. Mr. Holmes said: "Two years ago I had a aevere attack of grip which left me in a bad condition. I was ao weak that I frequently had to lay ff for two or three days at a time during a period of four or five montha. I could not very well afford to do thla but there waa no help for It I simply was not able to work. I lost flesh, got nervous, had wful headaches and felt worn out all the time. 1 had read of aome remarkable cures made by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People in cases like mine and ao decided to try them. A few boxes helped me and I think I took ten altogether. They drove 11 traces of the disease out of my sys tem and made me feel like a different man. have told many of my acquaintance about Dr. William' Pink Pills and what they did for me." After an attack of the grip there la al ways left behind some troublesome effects. Often these are worse than the disease itself and seem to baffle all efforts of phy sicians. Health la shattered the blood be comes poor, the flesh falls away, the suf ferer grow nervous and irritable, and even light exertion causes shortness of breath. These are dangeroua symptoms and Indi cate that the system is in a state that In vitee pneumonia, bronchitis or even con sumption. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills tor Pale People, however, will not only quick ly restore the health after an attack of the grip, and expel the lingering germs but, working upon the blood, will render the system proof against the disease. In hundreds of cases Just as remarkable as that of Mr. Holmes, It haa been shown that Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have aurely ac complished this result. At all drug stores or sent postpaid, on receipt of price, 60 cents a box; six boxes for $2.60, by the Dr. Williams Medicine Company, Schenectady, N. T. of Lancaster. The only condition Imposed upon the fortunate town is that It give for a site upon which the school Is to be erected twenty acre of land valued at $75 an acre. Ex-Representative Wbltmore of Aurora was In Lincoln today and la very anxious that tho normal school board grant hia cl'tr the new achool. He waa gratified to learn that the $10,000 provision had been atrlcken from the bill. This will be the mean of putting many of the smaller towns in the race for the achool. In the meantime It will be July 9 before the law becomea effective and then the fact that the achool la to be erected will be advertised for twenty day before the lite 1 chosen. Probably It will be the latter part of July or the flrat of August before the school 1 located. In the meantime State Superintendent Fowler 1 receiving appltcationa for those who desire to teach In that achool yet to be built. Though no appropriation ha been made for the maintenance of the achool and It la the belief of Deputy Superin tendent McBrlen that the achool will not be In running order for a year from Septem ber, there are many who are willing to take chances and work on credit. No one haa yet applied for the position of principal. Relief Maaey for Swedes, Chancey Warner, a member of the late legislature from Lancaster county, was at the capital today from the rural regions aroqnd Waverly to look after that $2,000 appropriation made for the starving people of Sweden, Norway and Finland. Warner introduced the bill. He waa met here by Hon. B. M. Stenberg of Omaha, tha vice conaul for Norway and Sweden, and to gether they called upon Governor Mickey to aee If the warrant could not be aent off at once. : Probably the . warrant will be drawn tomorrow and the money aent aa aoon aa possible. It will be divided in three parte. One thousand dollars will go to Sweden, aent through the Swedish con aul in Washington; $500 to Norway, aent through the Norwegian consul at Wash ington; $500 will be sent to the Russian minister, to be forwarded to Finland. Fire) Eieapei la Fall City. Chief Clerk Dtspain of the office of the labor commissioner is in Falls City today to make those parties who have buildings without fire escapes hustle up an comply with the law. Many of the partiea, who have been served with notice to con struct Are escapee, have complied with the notlcea. There are others, however. In various towna of the atate who have done nothing. A vigorous effort will be made and continued to be made to bring these men to time until every building that la In need of a fire escspe ha one. Coavlct Labor Debate. The question of convict labor waa too much for the Board of Public Lands and Buildings todsy, and after hearing more arguments on both sides, and after consid ering the evidence t3 aome extent, the board adjourned, to meet again tomorrow afternoon to make a final settlement From the action of the board today it begins to look aa though Warden Davis will lose out on his contract and the Lee Broom and Duster company will get all the convlcta it can use for the broom snd duster business, though tomorrow a differ ent front may be taken by some members of the board. Member Mortensen moved that Warden Beemer be instructed to al low Mr. Davia a sufficient number of con vlcts to conduct his button business. But there waa no second to the motion. Mr. Mortensen explained that Mr. Davis would only require about ten or twelve men, but the board preferred to wait until tomorrow and then make a final report of the matter. Mortensen feels sure that Mr. Davis will be granted at least a few of the convicts. He Is opposed to granting a monopoly of the convict labor to any one firm or com pany and he believes that ths board will think the same way by tomorrow. Straw Board MM1 Closes.
