High School Turni Oat More Graduate.
Thh Tear Than Ever.
There Will Be Six Oration by Mem
ber of tbe rian, Wkt Win Thl
Distinction In Opt Ce
The largest graduating class In tha
history of tha Omaha High achool will
receive diploma at the Orpheum theater
on the evening of Friday, June 1. Ther
ara 1W) student In the senior claaa, 101
of them being girls and flfty-nln boya.
The largest class before the present waa
graduated last year, when 14 finished tha
work. The old ratio of one boy to three
girls who graduated from the Omaha High
school Is maintained, but It Is probable
that In the competition for the honor of
representing the class at the commence
ment, the boys will rank stronger than
they should from a mere numerical point
of view.
For the 180 students who will leave tha
high school, approximately 500 pupil will
enter from the lower grades, according
to Superintendent Pearae. Thle number
Is little, If any, In excess of the high
school matriculations for the past few
years. During the achool year Just draw
Ing to a close the attendance In the
schools has ndl been marked by any
considerable Increase. Last month there
was an Increase of "60, over a correspond
ing time last year, but earlier In the sea
son the number had fallen below the
previous year's record.
The school authorities say that many
families have moved away because of
the Union Pacific strike, while on the
other hand the truant officer, who Is being
used In Omaha for the first time, has
kept from 200 to 300 children In school
who otherwise would be absent.
Six Class Orators.
This year the commencement of the
graduates from the high school Is to
follow along the same lines as that .of
last year. There will be six orations from
members of the class, the presentation
of diplomas and certificates to cadets who
have drilled four years, and possibly a
short address to the class. Aside from
the Incidental music and accessories this
will be all there Is to the commencement.
The orators should be the best fitted for
the office of any In the class, as they
will win the privilege by open competi
tion. Early In the year Principal Waterhouse
began two classes of oratory, open to all
the seniors. Entrance was equivalent to
entering Into competition for commence'
ment day honors. Only forty-four, how
ever, took advantage, but this waa nearly
twice the number that did last year. Some
time ago the members of the oratory classes
prepared essays or orations which were sent
to the Instructors in the English depart
ment at the State university, Inspected an
graded. .
The eleven highest will deliver their pro
ductions some time within two weeks' and
the same. judges will. then further reduce
' the number of contestants to six, who
will speak from the platform commence
mont night. It Is a fact perhaps notewor
thy that the majority of tha eleven who
submitted successful manuscripts are not
students who have achieved any remark
able distinction in scholastic standing.
Eleven la the Contest.
The 'names of the eleven 'are: August
Swenson, Claire McDermott, Sidney Singer,
Erla Coral, Byron Eaton, Alice Wright,
Josle Frailer, Ellen True, Jessie Waugh.
Roy Sunderland . and Madeline Killis. It
will be observed that four out of tho
eleven are boys and It Is said that least
two of them will survive the delivery test.
The officer of the 1903 class are: President,
Hugh Wallace; vice president, Laura
Rhoadei; secretary, Rita Clark; treasurer,
Joy Btftphen. While the program for the
final exercises Is iAt complete it has been
decided to dispense with the elaborate,
costly and time-consuming class day ex
ercises of former years and as aubstltut
to hold a class banquet at the Millard hotel
on the night following commencement, at
which most of the best class day features
will be preserved. The class history, proph
ecy songs, poems, etc., will be Inter
mingled with the toasts and a committee
of which Miss Jennie Besserman la the

riaaa Being Rapidly Metered for the te Ce Gives la
Plana are rapidly being matured for the
banquet of the Omaha High School Alumni
to be given on June 23. Heretofore the
alumni in reunion haa always been com
bined with a dance. Last year, owing to
an unfortunate condition of affairs the
usual reunion waa omitted much to tha
disappointment of the alumni. Something
unique In the way of banquets Is prom
ised this year If the committee's plan Is
auceessful. It Is felt that the large and
growing band of alumni I not a potent
aa It ahould be In affair looking toward
the welfare of the high school and It is
hoped that this banquet will have the ef
fect of bringing out large numbers of the
aona and daughters of the Omaha High
achool. At a meeting last night at the
home of Miss Bertha Phllllpl, It was de
cided that owing to the slse ot the ban
queting hall, the number of tickets sold
should be limited to too. Further that no
tickets ahould be sold after June 1. There
fore It will be necessary that those de
siring to attend should secure their tickets
before that date. On and after May it
tickets msy be had of Allan Hamilton at
the Midland Olasa and Paint company, or
of Arthur Jorgensen at the Toung Men's
Christian association.' The reception to be
held before the banquet will give all op
portunity for class reunions, as well aa
for meeting and greeting old school mates.

Aether of Novel of Omaha Society
Talks Bnek at Destructive
Crltlea of Hla Work.
sln the Indianapolis Journal Meredith
Nicholson gets back at tha attack on his
book, "The Main Chance," as a roast
upon Omaha, expressing his opinion of the
World-Herald man and his comment in
the following faahlon:
"It Is curious," he said, "that he should
take this view, for a number of eastern
newspapers, In reviewing my story, have
expressed pleasure that at last a novel
of western life has been written in which
-all the characters were ladles and gen
tlemen, who, aa. the Boston Herald says,
no. longer eat sugsr and vinegar on their
lettuce. I had an Inquiry from a gentleman
the other day as to where my town of
Clarkson Is, aa he thought It sounded
like an Ideal place, and he wanted to
move there. I fear the World-Herald man
was looking for trouble. The loyslty of
the Clarkson people toward their own
city Is one thing that I hoped to get Into
the story, and nobody but this one editor
seems to have missed It. My story is
dated back to the early nineties, and
Omaha had changed much In the past
decade. I don't care to have my book
advertised In this yellow wsy, at the ex
pense of Omaha, which I meant only to
"But there are certain incidents that
seem to have given especial offense, a
ball, for instance. What about that?"
Mr. Nicholson laughed. "My descrip
tion of the Knights of Midas ball does
seem to have wounded the Omaha editor."
he replied, "but here again be has quoted
from the Joking references to It of one
of my characters, and not my own com
ments. He calls my description of the
Clarkson club 'sarcastic but there Isn't
a word of sarcasm In th whole book.
Ther may be a little gentl irony here
and there, but not enough to wound any
normal human belng'a feelings. Tha
World-Herald aeema to have forced me
Into the position of defending Omaha,
which Is not a wise thing for a news
paper of good Intentions to do."
"Do you admit the charge that you
drew your characters from life?"
"It makes me tired, this effort to find
the originals of my characters in certain
Missouri valley cities," said Mr. Nichol
son with much earnestness. "I have had
lettera from Kanaaa City, St. Joseph and
Omaha asking aa to th Identity of cer
tain characters," he want on. "Ther are
no originals of any of my people. They
are pencil ketches and not kodak pic
tures. William Porter Is a composite of
two or three men that I have known In
western cities. Evelyn Porter Is, I think,
a type of the present-day college-bred
girl, who goes home from school to find
that life Isn't all chocolate creams and
matinee tickets. Mabel Margrave Is her
antithesis. I have known about seven
Mabels In different parts of the world.
and It has seemed to me that they added
a good deal to tha gayety of nation.
."I have no Intention of quarreling with
the literary crltlea, but the World-Herald
man ia not of that clasa. He went through
The Main Chance' merely to find some-
thing that would maka a sensational ar
ticle. He ha digged hi own pit, for I
never told anybody that Clarkson waa
Omaha. H doesn't owe me any apoloa-y.
but as an admirer of the snap and vigor
and charm of Omaha I think he owes' an
apology to his fellow-citlsens."

I'nlon Paellle Surveyor.
About a dosen surveyors In the employ
of the Union Pacific ar camped at Sey
mour lake and will remain In this neigh
borhood for some days yet. 'This party
la surveying an air line from C street and
the boulevard to Fremont. The work
started several days ago from the point
where the Burlington bridge crosses the
Union 'Pacific tracks mt C streefand Is be
Ing run In as .'straight a line as possible.
When completed the line" will leavethe city
limits at about FOrty-elghth and Q streets
and thence to Fremont.
By building thla air line from ' South
Omaha limit on the north direct to Fre
mont the distance will' be shortened be
tween "nine and ten miles. The report her
1 that only fast tralna over the Union
Pacific will us this cut oft. '
For m eemple of years It was supposed
here that the Union Pacific would use tha
new line being contsructed by the North
western. This line started at nearly the
same point the new line ha been started
and for two years nearly work has been
kept up. Rumor has it that some differ
ences of opinion exist between the Union
Pacific and the Northwestern people, hence
the new Union Paclflo survey. The en
gineer In chsrg of the party decline to
talk about their business and especially for
Few Repairs Needed.
Mayor Koutsky and City Engineer Beal
made a tour of Inspection yesterday to
ascertain what damage had been done ,by
the heavy rain of Sunday night. To th
surprise of both officials very few wash
outs were found. "The street are hold
ing much better thl spring than ever be
fore," said th mayor. "I attribute this
to the thorough going over the engineer
gave all of th street last fall before cold
weather set In.' What work wa needed
was well done. The thorough repairs made
in the fall have saved the city several
hundred dollars this spring. It will take
but a little work to fill th few washouts
nd th entire cost will hardly exceed $100."
Police Board Meeting.
Considerable Interest Is being manifest In
the meeting tonight of the Fire and Police
board. Rumors of all kinds were rife yes
terday, but no one appeared to have any
authority for atatementa made. Some said
that th fire department wa to have a
general overhauling, while others asserted
with equal confidence that an order was
to be Issued closing the saloons on Sunday.
At any rate thoae In the employ of the
board are kept on th ragged edge watting
to see what will develop next.
Wast th C'lnh Revived.
There seema to be a general desire for
the calling of a meeting for the purpose
of reviving th South Omaha Commercial
club. It 1 about two year lnce thl or
ganisation held a meeting of any Import
ance. F. J. Freltag. th last president ot
th organisation, la reported aa aaylng that
h would Issuer a call for a meeting soon,
with the request that all of ths former
members and all those Interested In the
welfare ot th city attend and assist In
the reorganisation.
Raiaa Damage Excavation.
The recent heavy rains have done con
siderable damage to' the excavation mad
some time ago for the Carnegie library.
Th walls ar rapidly being wsshed away
and the holes dug for th ston pier sup
ports ar filled with mud and water. Quit
a sum will have to he expended to repair
the damage when the work of construction
commences. Officers of th library board
stated, yesterday that they had no Idea
when work would commence. There la
money on hand to proceed, but for som
reason the contractor haa been holding
back for ever two month.
Last Might' Storms.
Th heavy rain last night appeared to
be wore than any ot the preceding storms.
On N street tha water ran curb high clear
across the atreet. While the sewer stood
th strain well, It was feared that soma
repairs to th storm water sewer will hav
to be made, a th volume, of watar wa
too great for th sewer to carry it all off.
Fortunately all of th catch basins In th
downtown portion of th street had been
cleaned yesterday In order to prevent
clogging In case of a heavy rain. At th
railroad tracks, from L trt south of Q
street, the water .stood a foot deep in
places over the trscks, snd for a time
during the height of th storm no effort
wss made to switch stock or freight In
the ysrds. Many cellars were flooded, espe
cially In the business portion of the city.
Major Kreppa laapeeta Troop.
Last night, at the Troop armory. Major
Kreppa, U. S. A., Inspected th South
Omaha Cavalry troop. Officers and men
appeared In their best and made a de
cidedly creditable showing. The equipment
waa also Inspected and found to be In first
class condition. Drill for an hour followed
the Inspection of equipment. The storm
prevented the troop from maneuvering on
the streets, as had been planned, so the
Inspection had to be held In the armory.
Major Krepps complimented both officers
and men on their soldierly besting and th

"One of the strangest events 'occurring
In my experience in those day wa dur
ing the winter of 1867. We had left Fort
Reno, on the Powder river for Fort Lar
amie and had expected to meet the mall
pa,rty from Fort Laramie at the camp on
Dry Cheyenne. -There were but three of
u in th party . and . were led to be
lieve that the Indian were "pretty " quiet
on that road. We failed to meet the ex

pushed on to the Piatt and on th eeond
day went into emmp em Brown Island
In the North' Ptatt near Fort Casper, aa
m matter of aafety agalnat any prowling

there. The weather waa Intensely cold
and there was considerable snow ' falling
a we .went Into camp. It waa not yet
dark and we saw on the outh aide of the
river bottom a couple of mile from our
camp a party of four or five horsemen
escorting what appeared to ua to toe a
government wagon. We at once divined
It to be the mall and escort and watched
It for quit a while with our glasses.
Darkness soon settled down and we anx
iously awaited the morning. Leaving our
camp we rode over to where we had seen
the escort and wagon last, but could not
find the slightest . trace of It, nor even a
wagon track. This could be accounted for
through tha snow drifting badly during
the night, notwithstanding we mad a de
tour of several mile to find th wagon
track. But w never did find them and
tar thl day I do not know what became

Of th two hour allowed tor the business
ot the annuil meeting of the Woman's club
held yesterday afternoon, forty minutes
were very much occupied witn a motion to
continue the complimentary list; amend
ments to the motion, numerous and varied
amendments to the various amendmenta
and a spirited discussion of each and all,
individually and collectively, in order and
out of order, to th end that th list waa
continued for the coming year; was limited
to ten women, who shall be of benefit to the
