NEW BOORS AND MAGAZINES Alfred Henry Lewii Haa Made ft Hit with I , I uis wmt uviw I HARPERS PUBLISH A WORK ON SCIENCE A Snaaber at Interesting- Leva ttorlea I lien -now i jvrrp Well. 'A prominent English novelist to whom Draxel Blddl. the Philadelphia publisher, sent a copy of "Peggy O'Neal," by Alfred Henry Lewis, has styled "Peggy" "The pretty stumbling block of Jackson's admin istration." Ha has written a letter to Rud- yard Kipling, in which he says that "Peggy O'Neal" Is more worthy to be called the long-looked-for American novel than any other that haa thus far appeared. Peggy O'Neal waa known by Washlngton lans In Andrew Jackson's day as tha wife of Secretary, Eaton of the president's cabl. net. It Is tha war against her, carried on by tha women of Washington, who for the reason that Peggy O'Neal waa younger, handsomer and more vivacious than they, decided that their own social supremacy depended on combating the young woman. They based their warfare on the fact that her father had been a tavern keeper, and that the gay Peggy waa altogether too frivolous of character. The gret presi dent, "Old Hickory." took her part. The plot is masterly and the Incident exciting. "New Conceptions in Bclenee," by Carl Snyder, is one of the yaluable new. books published by Harpers. The great beauty and value of this work of Mr. Snyder's lies in the fact that it Is written in language end style so simple and comprehensive that it Is not necessary for one to even make pretensions of being a scientist to under stand It, A desire to keep abreast with the times Is the only requisite to reading and comprehending this scholarly and Interest ing work. Mr. Snyder Is an optimist and there are no gloomy parts or passages. The ' subjects chosen are Just those one desires to know about. The opening chapter is a very Interesting one on "Science and Progress." The rise and fall of the school of science at Alexandria is used as tha first object lesson. Speaking of Alexandria, the author says: "Here flourished for more than 600 years that long Una of astronomers and mathematicians, geographers and ge ometers, physicists and physicians, begin ning with Euclid, and not ended with Ptolemy, which made illustrious tha Alex andrian school which, made Alexandria, Indeed, a veritable city of science." The attention of the reader la called to the length of time the human race has stood at its present level and. to the "brlefnesi of the period, in which exact knowledge, based upon measures and experiment, has replaced guess work . and dreams." He says: "The last two or three centuries have acquired a wider knowledge of this world and of the larger universe, than all of tha sixty or a hundred centuries preced ing." The reason for all this he sums up In this brief way; "For tha upbuilding of the vast body of verified and unified ex perlence and experiment which we call science, there waa required the invention of tools of delicate instruments and me chanical constructions of every sort. It li the requirement and possession of these that alone differentiates us from the old days." Ho gives as another reason for the slow progress that science lacked numbers that ita adherenta and exponents were too few. . The. other chapters are equally enter taining and instructive. While one cannot resist the spell of the author's optimistic charm, yet, probably there are those hi will differ from him in some thoughts. He says; "The end and aim of all scientific endeavor Is to describe natural phenomena. including all visible and invisible things- matter, life and mind by simple mechan leal laws, expressible in mathematical equations." Then again, "We may now change tha tense of Tyndall's famous " phrase and say: ' "Science has claimed, and it has wrested from theology, the entire domain of cosmologies! theory." Speak ing of the "deformed, the defective and diseased" members of humanity, he says they "must be incessantly weeded out.' Then he has something to siy of the prei nt marriage relations, that while it may be scientific, will hardly be accepted with out "a grain of salt" by those who are not ao "up" In science. The price Is 13. "The Modern Obstacle," by Alice Duer Miller, is a love story thjtt differs ma terially from the' usual love stories in that it immediately cornea to tha point on tha "modern obstacle" question. 'The modern obstacle" la money, and no tlrv is wasted In "love in a flat" or "willing; to sacrifice ' theories. This modern hero ine must have money and don't care who knows It In this clever story Mrs. Miller ahowa that for some, money Is the symbol of happiness, and she paints a true picture of how' enslaving It becomes to those who ao absolutely depend upon It Charles Scrlbner's Sons, New York, are the pub- Ushers. The Sins of a Saint." by J. R. Altken, author of "Lov in Its Tenderness," is historical romance of the tenth century, The principal characters are King Ead wln. Queen Elglva and other historical characters of that period. Mllner in his "History of England," says: "The events of this reign are among the most painful In English history, and though not free from obscurity, they are sufficiently clear to win for the king our sympathies as the victim of unmerited Injuries, and rouse Indignant feeling at the lust of power and pride of place, which Involved an eccle- tastiest) party adverse to him in the guilt of atrocious .crimes." Published by D. Appleton Co., New York. "For the Pleasure of His Company,' an affair of the Misty City, thrice told, by Charles Warren Stoddard. Is a story in . which the. principal character, Paul Cllth ro. who is really a very nice fellow, educated and Intelligent has a much more serious time "keeping his head above water" than usually come to the prin cipal characters In stories.

'Notes from Nature's Lyre," by Howard Beck Reed, la a very handsome book of poems, singing of nature In its different moods and phases. The muses have cer tainly Inspired Mr. Reed, and this study of nature In verse will be appreciated by those who love to live near nature and nature's God. Published by O. P. Putnam a Sons, New York and London. "Shakespeare and the Rival Poet," with portraits of Shakespeare and George Chap man, by Arthur Acheson Shakespearean scholars have long investigated the per sonallty whom the great bard In some of his plays honored with no toy emulation. Both In "Troilus and Cresslda" and In 'Love's I,abor Lost" there aro "passaees of arms" with this rival poet. Mr. Acheson seeks to prove, in his able and entertaining monograph, that George Chapman, poet and playwright was tha contemporary with whom Shakespeare deigned to touch lances. It Is a work that will be of great Interest and Importance to the scholar of literature. Published by John Lane. The price Is $1.26 net. "Remembrances of Emerson," by John Albee, Is one of the new books published by Robert Grler Coolce. Its contents are divided Into three parts, "A Day with Emerson," "Emerson's Influence on the Young Men of His Time" and "Emerson as Essayist." A perusal of this work, written by one who had the most profound admira tion for and an intimate acquaintance with the great philosopher, gives one an Insight Into his moods and thoughts that . could not possibly be written by those who had not had this personal and close acquaint ance. It will be especially appreciated at this centennial time. The frontispiece Is a portrait of Emerson, of which he himself said, "Looks most as I see myself."

By a unanimous voto, Dyball alone ab sent the city council last night sustained the veto of the resolution authorising and ordering Contractor E. D. Van Court to repair Sixteenth street from Douglas to Cuming. It waa on the ground that the resolution was In direct conflict with the charter provisions defining the powers, du ties and authority of the city engineer and the Board of Public Worka. It also called attention to the fact that Con- ractor Van Court began work on the street Immediately after the council passed the resolution and completed the work that he had no authority whatever to do so, the resolution not having been con curred In by the mnyor. The Omaha Waterf company must sue the city for Its water rent bill for the first six months of 1903. The last legisla ture wiped out the provision for a levy for water rent and there Is no money In the water fund. - The council, on the rec ommendation of City Attorney Wright, re jected the bill, thereby allowing the com pany to sue and get Judgment. The bill for the regular contract rate and was not rejected on Us merits. The protest of the Omaha Real Estate exchange egnlnst the city employing an assistant building Inspector, and other minor officials, and he creation of other offices, was placed on. file without discus sion. License Inspector Scott reported ll.4S3.60 and Weight and Measure Inspector Ma- hammit reported $118.80 collected during June. Two attempts were made, and fnlled by tie votes, to settle the matter of employing special counsel to represent the city In the railroad tax litigation.

Th O'Netl family, consisting of David W. O'Netl, Mrs. O'Netl and 6-year-old Ruby O'Nell, Just missed being sent toward the clouds through the roof of a North Six teenth street tenement house yesterday. As it was the wallpaper of their room was burned and scorched and their dinner was polled where It reposed on a gasoline stove which had a full tank. Anothei gallon of gasoline stood in th corner where the flames were hottest but for soma strange reason declined to en thuse. Because of this disdain the O'Nell family and a few other families, likewise In one-room homes, lived to discuss th matter with Chief Salter. It all happened In the Phoenix rooming house at 709 North Sixteenth street In this habitation there are many rooms, most of them small and moat of them serving aa a sort of tabloid edition of a horn with parlors, bed chambers, dining rooms and kitchens conveniently merged. Mrs. O'Nell had th dinner well under way on the small stove, which Is Just opposite the dresser, and left for a few minutes. Meanwhile the 'little girl played on th floor and amused herself by demonstrating that small bits of paper would burn. She found out that large bits also would burn, and th loose wallpaper on the dry partition was soon ablaae. Mrs. O'Nell rushed in and began to hurl all liquids In jilght on ths fir. Apparently she didn't mind th two cans of gasoline that were conspicuous by their silence In the blaxa With the aid of other women and men who cam In a hirry th fir was put out with small damage to ths room and soma .Usflgurement of the O'Nell wardrobe not forgetting ths mixing of ths dinner with fragments of charred paper and wood.

TO BUILD ELECTRIC RAILROAD Kloax City, Homer 4t Soataera Coma aay Is laenraomted with Omaha Men. The local promoters of the Sioux City, Homer ft Southern, an electric lnterurban Una. for which articles of Incorporation were filed Monday with the secretary of state, refused today to enter Into the de tails of th company's plana R. 8. Hall said th time had not yet come when they felt at liberty to talk. The Omaha Incor porators are Senator Joseph H. Millard, Postmaster Crow, J. B. Haynes and R. 8. Hall. The articles of incorporation allow for the construction of a road south from Sioux City, . through Dakota county to Homer, and further south If the company desires to extend. It Is understood that R. A. Talbot of South Sioux City la the principal promoter of th Una. He has en tered already Into a traffic arrangement for the bridge between Sioux City and Bouth Sioux City, over which at present run rail way and electric oars, and has obtained the franchises necessary to carry the line south to ths northern boundary of the Winnebago Indian- reservation, which is the right to lay rails through the three towns. South Sioux City, Dskota City and four miles south of -Homer, this Including Homer. The line haa been surveyed to the latter place and staked out a far as Da kota City. The articles of incorporation call for a beginning of building by September. There probably will be no attempt to come sjuth of Homer thla year and the extension will somewhat depend on the people of Decatur. The line may come to Omaha at some fu ture day, but the probability Is remote. Tho line south to Homer, It Is said, will be unusually easy of construction, as It is slmost level, with only one small bridge to build. There 1 a thickly populated plateau running for twenty-five miles down the river, all the reads of which lead to Sioux City, because of the heavy bluffs to the west, making communication with upland towns difficult. The Incorporators are said to have received guarantees of heavy travel and the 'people of the district touched, which has now no railway con nection, to be much elated. During heavy rains the roada of the tection are very muddy and the electric read will be a great benefit DEATH RECORD. Mrs. Caroline Barbaak. SPRINGFIELD, Neb., July 14. (Special.)

QUESTION OF MAINTENANCE DISCUSSED Disagreement Over the Aaoiati to Be AlIoTted May Reanlt la a Salt Against Coancll by the Board. Tuesday th Fire and Police Board en deavored to hold a conference with tha city council, the main object being to receive some recognition from the mayor and city council. In the first place, the member of the council declined to meet with th board and individually gave it out that in no manner, shape or form would the Fir and Police board be ' recognised by the council. The board wanted to know where the salary of Its member was coming from, also, th salary of th secretary. Incidental expenses wr also mentioned. The finance committee of th council as serted that in compliance with th law a levy had been made for th mainte nance of the Are and polio departments and that was all that could b expected. Chairman Vansant stated that it was de sired to put firemen and policemen under bonds, and have ths city pay th premium on th bonds. This raquest waa met by th statement that aa none of th members of the board were under bonds, th council could not see Its way clear to levy a tax on th people for such purposes. It Is too late now to make any cnang In the levy ordinance, as th law specifies that the levy must be made btwn July and 15. Both th levy and ap- nronriatlon ordinances have been passed and are now being printed. Evn should the council hav any inclination to mak alteration it could not do o aa th time limit has now expired. It Is expected that th board will instltut proceedings against the council, and this la Just wnat is wanted as it has been asserted oy at torneys that the law permitting th gov ernor to appoint a board of commissions Is invalid.
