A number of the policemen recently die-
charged by the fire and police board hav
retained an attorney and propose com
mencing suit againat the city for their
pay. These suits are to be filed snorny
after June 1. First a demand will be made
on the board for the payment of the sal
aries of the discharged men, and In case
this should be refused suit Is to be started.
It will be alleged that the men were die-
charged without any charges having been
filed or a trial of any sort.
T. J. Nolan, a member of the police com
mission, said last night to a Bee reporter
that In his opinion the men discharged
had no cause for action. "When this board
took hold of affairs," said Mr. Nolan, "It
directed that every member of theflre and
police departments flle application for po
sitions. In going over the applications the
board rejected some. The board merely
acted on the applications, and no trial wa
necessary to remove any of the member
of the department.
"Those members of the departments
whose applications have not been acted
upon are merely acting members. In the
case, of Chief Brlggs, he sign all of hi
official papers a acting chief. In the case
of members of the department appointed
by the board It will b necessary to prefer
charges and hsve a trial before an order
for dismissal can be Issued."
In conclusion Mr. Nolan stated that In
the case of some of the member of the
police department removed it would be
better for them not to start anything, a
the board I supposed to have evidence of
Incompetency which would be brought out
should th cases go to the courts.

McLean Want Addresses.
superintendent McLean of the publlo

address and occupation of every graduate
of the South Omaha high school. Last
evening Prof. McLean said: "I find that

are Incomplete In respect to the name of
the graduate of the high school. I should
like to hav every graduate, wherever lo

be made. In some Instances I find that
pupils were allowed to graduate without
taking the full course, permission to grad

to return In the fall and finish the course.

the course has not been kept. Members

A truly magnificent audience, represent
ing the social and musical people ot Omaha,
filled the Immens area of the Coliseum last
night, the occasion being the climax con
cert of the very successful May festival
which waa then brought to a close.
To say that Omaha went wild with en
thusiasm over the musical gems Which
were offered, would be a mild description
of 'the tumult of applause which greeted
The scene presented was one never to be
forgotten. The stage picture, which In
cluded the superb orchestra the Metropoli
tan Opera House orchestra of New York
backed by the chorua of over 160 people,
the women gowned In soft white, the men
In evening dress, behind that the national
colors, blended with those of Ak-8ar-Ben,
and above all the starry dome of electric
lights truly a scene from fairyland.
The orchestra opened the program with
the old war horse, "Rleml" overture, In
which the beautiful ensemble of that fine
body of say sixty Instrumentalists wa
well brought Into evidence.
Mr. Due conducted In a most original
manner. He I not what one would call an
orthodox conductor, but he I magnetlo, h
believe In action, and Uvea up to hi be
lief. He might almost be termed the Sousa
of the orchestral world at times. His baton
s a conjurer' wand, and he swings It
with flourishes galore. Monsieur d Resxke
not being on hand when the second num
ber waa called, Mr. Duss took occasion to
give a most Interesting talk in connection
with the "Bymphonle Pathetlque" of Tsch
alkowsky. Mons. De Reszke, with his
glorious voice and stage presence, his ar
tistic tone-production, his ease of delivery
and perfect enunciation, captivated the
audience, which showered so much applause
upon him that he gave the familiar old
song, "The Palms." Thl, of course, cre
ated a storm, which the good-hearted big
basso responded to by singing the "Port
er' Song" from "Martha," to piano ac
companlment by Mr. Romayne Simmons.
The movements from the "Bymphonle
Pathetlque" were very Interesting to tha
music-lovers, the first movement showing
abundant color and variety of Instrumental
tion, while the "Adagio Lamentoso ' was
a fine example of broad, massive tone- as
semblage, reminiscent Indeed In many
pot of the Immortal "Largo" of Handel
but none the worse for that.
Madame Nordlca, America' American,
and Art' artist par excellence, wa In
troduced In the celebrated "Polonaise'
from Ambrols Thomas' "Mlgnon," which
showed oft her superb vocalisation, her
magloal run, trill, staccatl, and mlracu

light of the audience. Thla magnificent
piece of work brought, of course, an ea

All of these did Mona. De Reszke give

I a singing, sobbing, speaking tone, full
of warmth, color and Intensity, For an
encore the old familiar "Largo" of Handel

shown laat night that Omaha claim him

The "Inflammatu" from Rossini's
"Btabat Mater" by Mm. Nordlca and the
May Festival Choir, waa a great hit, and
wa repeated In part. Mr. Dusa read a let

had requested Mr. Franko to conduct thla
number, as he himself was Indisposed, be

NEW YORK. May 15.-The Army and

the president, who directed him to give

Coming to the subject of cruelties in the
Philippines, General Miles' letter reads;
It Is Idle to assume that campaigning In
the PhillDnlnes has conditions that warrant
resort to medieval cruelty and a departure
from an honorable method ot conuuctlng
warfare, and that such depredations should
be overlooked and condonen.
It is most arat fv Ina that the serious
onenaes have not been committed by the
soldiers unless under the direct orders of
certain officers who were responsible. Sol
diers have withheld fire when ordered to
shoot prisoners, protested againat acts or
cruelty and written to relatlvea at home
urging them to take action to put a stop
to these crimes. It will ever be one of the
glories of the army that such deeds, ooin-
