Mayor Vmtm Off Matter Aaethcr Wtck
at tho Request at Hrabiri
f the Ceaaell Who
While ths city council, at Its meeting
last night, transacted considerable routine
business, there was little done of public
Interest. Contrary to expectations, the
mayor did not name the members of the
Board of Review, saying the members of
the council preferred to have the matter
postponed for one week.
The muddy weather hea caused a de
mand for crosswalks. Mr. Smith offered
a motion directing the street foreman to
lay crosswalks at Twenty-ninth and w.
Twenty-sixth and Y. Twentieth and W,
Nineteenth and W. Eighteenth and W, and
Thlrty-flrct and U streets. O'Connor
wanted a walk laid at Thirty-third and 1
streets. Both councllmen made strong ar
guments for the walks they asked for, but
when It was learned that there Is now only
about 1100 In the street repair fund, the
mayor said that the laying of the walks
would have to bej postponed until there Is
more money In the fund.
A committee of the First Christian church
sent in a communication asking that grad
es taxes, amounting to 1118. be canceled.
The committee alleged that the tax Is
Illegal and wanted the amount erased from
the books. This matter was referred to
the city attorney and the finance com
mlttee. In the same communication It was
stated that the congregation of this church
expects to commence the erection of a new
house of worship before a great while.
City Attorney Murdock and City Engineer

the grading of C street from Twenty-third

placed on nie. The grading of this street
will most likely be done this summer.
An ordinance wss read for the first time
providing for the laying of a two-plank
sidewalk on the north side of Jackson
street from Twelfth street to Railroad
An amendment to ordinance No. 41T, per
talnlng to vagrants, was read, but as nons
of the members of the council appeared
willing to father the document It waa con
signed to the waste basket. This amended
ordinance was' a great deal more radical
than some of the rules of the .Fire and Po
lice board and the council would have
nothing to do with it.
Clerk Shrlgley was directed to draw a
warrant for Si.750 to pay Interest on out
After a few bills had been ordered paid
the council adjourned for one week.
Board of Education.
The ' recular monthly meeting of the
Board of Education was held last night.
but little business was transacted. A doxen
or so applications for positions as teachers
and Janitors were read and placed on file.
A communication from Bohemian citizens
asking permission to use a couple of rooms
at the Brown Park school for summer
school was read and the request granted.
Bills to the amount of $9,000 were allowed:
This amount Included teachers' and Jani
tors' salaries' up to June 1.
The services of I A. Davis, architect for
the board, were dispensed with, although
Mr. Davis" contract does not explro until
.Juno.-, at was agreed that no more arcHi- 1
tects would be employed by contract. After
this architects will be employed after com
petitive bids have been submitted.
No steps were taken to build an addition
to Madison school, the mattes, going over
for one week.
A. C. Fancoast, the board's attorney, who
was elected at the first meeting In May,
was paid for the month, ..although A. L.
f utton, the former attorney, has a contract
binding the board until June 6. Therefore
the board will be compelled to pay for the
services of two attorneys for May.
Hustling- for Cool.
The South Omaha packers are again con
fronted with another coal famine A large
proportion of the coal used at the packing
plants comes from Kansas. Some ship
ments are made from Iowa and Missouri,
but the bulk of tne supply Is shipped from
Kansas. Under ordinary conditions the
that several shipments had already been
made from Chicago to Bt. Louis for fear
that the trains leaving South Omaha would
not be able to get through. South Omaha
packers have an abundance of dressed
meats and packing house products on hand
and with any sort of transportation fa
cilities can supply the demand for some
time to come.
Miss Myrtle Burns, assisted by Miss
Margaret O'Toole. will give a piano recital
at Masonlar hall this evening. The recital
tnsrks the conclusion of Miss Burns' musi
cal course under the Instruction of the
Sisters of Providence of St. Agnes' school.
At the closing exercises of the musical
course on Juno 18 Miss Burns will be pre
sented with a gold medal by the Sisters of
Providence. No admission will be charged
and friends of Miss Burns and the school
are cordially Invited to attend. '
Emergency Hospital Abandoned.
Owing to the rapid rise In the-river the
emergency hospital at Tenth and P streets
has been abandoned. Yesterday afternoon
the water hsd reached the door sill and
was still rising. J. D. Homan, the head
nurse, moved his family to higher ground
before the water got too deep to make
transportation across the sand bars un
safe. The hospital is now a little Island
all by Its lonesome, being completely sur
rounded by water. No patients have been
In the hospital for some little time, so
that the only persons Inconvenienced by
the high water are Homan and his family.
Flshirmen who had shacks along the river
bank have taken to the tall timber on top
of the bluffs Just south of the hospital.
All Mall Delayed.
Postmaster Etter as Id last night that all
mall is way behind time. Chicago and other
eastern mall was twenty-four hours late
yesterday. The banks and packing houses
miss the eastern and southern mall, but
as there Is no help for It they have to
worry along as best they can. Yesterday
the accumulation of three days was dis
tributed, but a light run of mail Is looked
for during the) balance of the week.
Another Vladact Delay.
The rains have washed out the excava
tion made for the retaining wall to be
constructed at the west end of the Q street
viaduct. Chtey Engineer King of the Union
Stock Yards company said last night that
nothing more toward repairing the viaduct
would be done until there was a change
In the weather. Even after the rain ceases
It will take some time for the ground to
dry out sufficiently Ho permit the excava
tion to be completed. With good weather
It will not take a great while to construct
the retaining wall. When this Is done the
bridge will be closed while general repairs
to the structure are being made. There Is
no telling when the work will be com
pleted, as It now all depends upon the

Thursday night that young person In
question appeared suddenly at the police
station, shortly thereafter went Into spasms,
was promptly chloroformed and sent to
Clarkson hospital, where he was solemnly
treated for lockjaw until Sunday, when
disquieting suspicion was aroused, which
led to Inquiry. It was found that the
patient had only Just been discharged from
Denver hospital, where he had gone
through the sums routine, been trepanned,
Injected with antl-toxlne and turned nut
cured. So yesterday afternoon the disturb

There is now apparent perhaps what
might be - termed a feeling of chagrin
among professional men and nurses and
others concerned and a slight desire to
avoid discussion. Dr. Paul Luddlngton, an
authority on tetanus, said when questioned
In regard to Marshall, that he held no
theories, or at least would express none.
and referred the questioner to Dr. Sum
mers, whose case It was. In response to
the question whether he had seen the ease
the doctor admitted that he wouldn't go
so far as to say that he had not. ur.
"I only returned to the city yesterday and
detected the sham at once. I charged the
man with It and he quit his foolishness.
He had told another patient that h was
hiding from the law. The man was
brought here under chloroform."
Miss Henderson, the head nurse, who had
had general supervision of the case from
Thursday, also became suspicious by Sun
day of the readiness with which the pa
tient yielded to the anaesthetic and of
His Denver Experience.
The prisoner is cither an Impostor simu
lating tetanus for the pleasure of being
chloroformed and trepanned or a fugltlvu
from Justice who seeks this means of evad
ing the police, or simply a person of un
sound tnlnd or one affected with a disease
which resembles lockjaw in its manifestations.
When Investigation was being made a
clipping was found In the pocket of Mar
shall's vest, which had been left at the
police station. It was from the Denver
Post of May 28, and told that Marshall
had been discharged cured from the
county hospital, his being the first case
successfully treated In the city. He had
been taken from the police station, where
he had appeared with his Jaws set, giving
the cause of his condition as a rusty nail
on which he had stepped four days De-
fore. The patient' skull was opened and
antl-toxlne Injected. This was on May 13,
and on May 26 he was playing ball.
On the night of May 28 he came to the
city hall In company with two other men
who had found him on the street and asked
for the city physician. He was not there
and Marshall was directed to the police sta
tion. There he appeared with his Jaws
set and apparently unable to talk. Tie
wrote on a scrap of paper that he had
stepped on a nail four days before and
begged that his mother be notified. He was
apparently seised with convulsions and
was chloroformed and later a priest sum
moned. The fresh scar on his forehead
was noticed, but thought to have been a
scalp wound which had been stitched to
gether. Those present say that if It waa
acting merely, It was very good of Its

placed on file.

IMPROVEMENT CLUB MEET
Orchard Hill and North Side Organ!.
aationa Dtscnsa Varloas Pub
The Orchard Hilt Improvement club met
at Fortieth street and Hamilton, avenue
lostevenlng with a good attendance. The
subjects discussed were additional i.trect
crossings and curbing and the urgent necos
slty therefor. Another matter engaging the
attention of the club is the extension of
thd sanitary and drainage sewer system In
that vicinity. The council will be petitioned
to glv the necessary relief. The ques
tion of a viaduct over the Missouri Pacific
at Parker street was also discussed and the
matter will be urged. The club Is In
working spirit and numerous Improvements
will be undertaken at Orchard Hill as soon
as the weathsr will permit.
The Inclement weather was a little too
much for a very large attendance at the
meeting of the North Side Improvmen
club at Magnolia hall. But little business
was transacted, though there are many
matters that demand attention In relation
to street grades and sidewalk Improve
ments. President Paul Ellis appointed
Charles Martin. Charles Onienlg and Henry
Dunn as a committee to make arrange
ments for the regular monthly entertain
ment to be given under the auspices of
the club the last Monday night of 'ht

DANTE AS THE WORLD POET
Theme of Rev. M. I. Strltch'e Lecture
at Crelghton t'nlverslty
"Dante Is a world poet, because he ap
peals to all men of all times. In all places,"
was the conclusion reached by Rev. M. I.
Strltch, S. J., In his lecture In the audi
torium of Crelghton university last night.
The lecture was given In honor of the
patronesses of the Oratorical association of
the university. These patronesses were re
quested to Invite their friends, and the
result was that the hall was well filled with
members of the Woman's club, teachers in
the public schools and others who were
more or less Interested in the subject.
Fsther Strltch began his lecture by re
ferring to the return of the Italian poet to
great popularity among the people of all
nations. He then referred to the physical
universe as understood by Dante, whose
conception of the universe was the Ptolemlc
idea, of ten spheres, each In charge of one
of the orders of heavenly beings of whom
the highest order Is seraphim and the
lowest angels; of the formation of the
earth, with Its four spheres of earth, water,
air and fire, and the disarrangement of the
earthly sphere when satan fell from the
throne of grace to the point furthest from
the presence of Ood, which, under that
scheme of philosophy, was the exact center
of the earth; of the formation of hell, by
the entrance of satan and his followers,
this abyss being In the form of a cone,
having Its base at a point In the western
hemisphere and Its point Immediately under
the city of Jerusalem; of the formation of
the mountain of purgatory, whose base
rested where the Society islands are now
found In the South sea. He then sketched
the Idea of the poet about things political
and his desire to see a universal emperor
In Rome, co-operating with, but entirely
free from the pope.
With these material and political Ideas
he spoke of the great poem, and Its In
fluunce upon man; the effort of the poet
to show in each of the nine gradations of
hell, of purgatory and heaven, a type of
mau corresponding to those to be found
on earth. The poem, like the ancient
writers said of the scriptures, has four
meanings, the literal, the allegorical, the
moral and the analogical, all to be found
in some parts and some to be found In all
parts. These 'meanings are as clearly
shown as is possible where such deep
themes are treated, for It required 'twenty
years for the completion of the great work

Only one ocesslon for debsts was sprung
on the Bosrd of Education at its meeting
last night. This came when the committee
on rules sought to get enacted a change
that will allow teachers pay for time lost
on account of sickness. Mr. Smith argued
that Omaha ought to be more liberal In
this regard, citing that Denver and other
cities allowed teachers pay for such un
avoidable absences from duty. Mr. Rice
urged similar reasons In support of the
change, but Mr. Mcintosh was not ready
to vote, and asked that the matter might
go over for one meeting, la order that other
members could have time to post up on
