Manning wa Included In the former trip
of some weeks ago, so was not Included In
the schedule to make a stop there, but the
delegates remembered how hospitable was
the town before and they did not have
tha heart to leave It out, so Manning had
to stand a second Invasion, and stood it
well. In fact the people were so cordial

Omaha bunch's pictures taken. Manilla

days to the Philippines, met his aged
mother In one of the small towns, and It
was all tha mother could do to stand the
parting from her beloved boy.

Eastern bond buyers notified Frank J.

'0,(XH) to the credit of the South Omaha
Board of Education. This money Is the
first installment of the HOO.iiQO voted for the
erection of a high school building. As fust
as the money is needed the bond buyers
will forward It to the Packers' bank. The
agreement was that the fluO.GO.) should be
paid in four Installments. Owing to the
lateness of the season It is hardly probable
that the entire amount will be drawn this
year. The arrival of the money provides
for the payment of the plans and tha ex
cavating and assures the contractors that
the money will be forthcoming as needed.
Under the present agreement the building
is to coat not more than T5,000, the balance
to be expended In furniture, tlttlngs, etc.
John Latenzer of Omaha has the contract
for the plans and will superintend the work
of construction. It Is understood that the
plans meet with the requirements and that
the Board of Education will hasten the
construction as rapidly as possible.

pleted In order that the congestion at Cen
tral school can be relieved.

Aaaaalted on the Street.
M. F. Bowman, who lives In Schuyler,

was walking down Farnam street Friday
morning early and, as he says, attending
to his own affairs, when two men accosted
him. tie waited lor them to come up, and
without further words une of them struck
him over the head. He was knocked down
and laid there for some time, now long
he does not know. Finally, after regaining
his senses, he made his way to a saloon,
whfre he staid several hours. The pro
prietor of the place advised him to go to
the pollco station, which he did. His left
eye was very badly bruised and blackened

Apparently the people are as fond as
ever of foolery set to music, for that Is
what "The Storks" amounts to, and yet It
was listened to by a large audience at the
Boyd lact night. Laughter and applause
gave evidence of the enjoyment of the
witty sallies and humorous points with
which the piece bristles, and the song
were well received, too. No mnterltl
change has been made In the Incidental
words of the piece since Its last appear
ance In Omaha beyond the addition of a
Joke or two to bring It up to date, one
Involving Sir Thomas Lipton and Reliance
being particularly noticeable.
Qua Weinberg Is the Bungloo of Bak
terla, and works faithfully to make the
part a go. He lacks somewhat In unctuous
ness, but more than makes up for this In
earnestness. Mr. Gregory's SUmguff Is an
excellent second and well supplements the
Bunglqo's effort. Olga von Hatzfeldt, who
mado a tour of the vaudeville circuit with
a bevy of good-looking dancing girls, Is
singing the songs that fall to the lot of
the poundmaater's daughter. She has a
voice that eludes classification, but Its
deficiencies are overlooked In the earnest
endeavor of its owner to do something- to
p'ease. This is more than noticeable in
her "Flirty Little Gertie" song, which was
better acted than sung last night. One Of
the principals Omnha Is glad to hear from
again Is Ada Deaves, who Is known and
liked as one of the "funniest women In

makeups, and It would be a hopeless part
she couldn't get some fun out of. As Pene

ance In anticipation of Ak-Sar-Ben week,
but he has fared badly. Chief Donahue has
his force on the lookout and believes he
can keep the usual carnival gang of crooks
down to the minimum.
Of the first gang five were arrested Thurs
day night by DetecUves Savage, Mitchell
and . Davis. They were found snugly en-,
sconced at m&Vi South Tenth. Among those
fcund at this place was "Billy' Morgan,
tha leader and according to the police the
smoothest proposition that has shied his
castor In thttr midst for many years. Mr.
Morgan has shown his cleverness on at
least one occasion within tbs knowledge of
the police. He It was, they say, who hired
the confiding young man from Lincoln,
promising him work on a cattle ranch near
Butte, Mont., at $45 a month and board,
and did not forget to borrow $33, all the
young fellow had, on the strength of giving
him the Job.
Associated with Morgan and now In the
city jail are George Clark, Tom Gorman,
Harry R, Mitchell and a woman. Lulu
Mitchell, who says she is Mitchell's wife;
Llizle Henry, supposed to be Morgan's
wife; H. H. Kline, J. HecknWn and A.
Petit. The last four named were arrested
The police say there Is plenty of evidence
In their possession to fully establish the
character tf the crowd. The police say
the men have 2,000 blank checks suitable
to all parts of the country. Two checks
already drawn, one In the sura of $675, made
payable at a bank In Minneapolis, and an
other for $600, payable on a small bank in
Wisconsin, were found on Morgan. A good
supply of what the police say look like
bonds In blank form, but In reality are
mere Imitations, were also found among
the paraphernalia necessary to the proper
conduct of a flist-class "confidence" estab
lishment. A speclflo charge will be filed against
Morgan and others of the gang within a
few days. I or the present all will be held
at police headquarters pending further In
vestigation. Some of the gang figured In
police court last week, having been found
In kn opium "Joint."

again In the district court, but not this
time as on three previous occasions dur
ing the present year, In the form of an In
junction. Adams A Morgan, attorneys for the Bar
ber Asphalt Paving company, have filed an
appeal from the allowance by the city
council of the bill of John Grant and the
Nebraska Bltullthlo company for asphalt
used In repairing Fifteenth and other
streets the last ten days. By the appeal
the mayor and other city officials are noti
fled not to pay the claim until it Is passed
upon by the district court Similar appeals
will be filed on any further street repair
bills allowed by the council.
Under the charter any taxpayer Is per
mitted to file such an appeal, In which cast
the person presenting the claim must prove
It before the courts. The appeal will not
stop the work, as would an Injunction.
"I'll go to Jail, if It Is necessary, to -pay
the honest bills that the city has contracted
for repairs to asphalt paving," was the
declaration made by Comptroller Loheck
this morning. Harry W. Cowduroy of the
Barber Asphalt company had Just filed no
tics that the bill of tha Nebraska Bltu
llthlo company for more than $1,000 worth
of asphalt would be contested In court.
The remarks of the comptroller Illustrate
the temper of all city officials In the matter
of repairing asphalt pavements. They say
the fierce fight between the two paving
companies has gone far enough and the
line must be drawn, even though a sacrifice
Is entailed. The repairs are going forward
rapidly and much to the satisfaction of
the engineering department.

"Stuttering Jim" Smith Is back In Omaha,
and occupies his usual residence, the city
Jail. Jim has probably had as much trouble
as any man in the city, but he absolutely
refuses to take warning from past punish
ment and be good. The last time he was
up before Judge Berka he was given time
enough to get out of town, and as he was
strapped, as usual, he could only get as
far as Council Bluffs. He staid there a few
days, but the glimmer of the Omaha lights
at night proved too much of an attraction
for him and he wandered back. After his
arrival, being still without funds, it oc
curred to him that measures to replenish
the exchequer would have to be taken, so
he cast about him for something that was
loose. Mrs. Schlndler went home Thursday
afternoon, after being abBent almost all day.

2530 Caldwell street. When she entered the
house a colored man made his exit through
ths back door. The woman marked him
carefully and gave the description to the
police, who Immediately surmised that Jim
was back In town. An officer was sent out
to look blm up, and sure enough, he was
found. He Ib charged -with being a sus
picious character, but this charge wll' prob
ably be changed to one of a more serious
