Northwestern Passenger nans Into
Rear F'.ml ml Milwaukee
in a rear-end collision between the sec
ond section of Chicago Northwestern
passenger train No. 6 and a Milwaukee
meat train last evening, about half way
between the bridge and the transfer de
pot, the caboose and one car of the freight
train were burned up, but no one was in
jured. Both trains were eastbound. The North
western passenger train, which was fof
tunately running not to exceed five or six
miles an hour, collided with the meat train
at a point about one mile east of what
Is known as the Union Pacific yard Junc
tion. The caboose was partly lifted from
the tracks and rested on the front of
the locomotive of the passenger train. A
few seconds after the collision the caboose
caught fire, evidently from the stove, and
was burned down to the trucks. The flames
communicated to the adjoining freight car,
took a short walk about the city after but the crew succeeded In extinguishing
first making the suggestion that they go I them before the car was completely des
across the river to spend the evening, but troyed.

Preparations Being Made for Ananal
Inspection of the National finard
Indict a Nebraska tattle
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINE3, Dec. 4. (Bpeclal.)-In the
biennial report of the superintendent of
public Instruction considerable space Is de
voted to the compulsory "school attendance
and truancy law. The superintendent states
that It Is the commonly expressed opinion
of the frlrndi of education, regardless of
creed, that the compulsory school attend
ance and truancy law enacted by the
twenty-ninth general assembly was the
most Important single statutory enactment
In recent years; that It has In it more of
promise for good In education than almost
any other law relating to education If Its
provisions are executed In the spirit of
fairness. The statistical part of the report
says that there are about 8.000 pupils of the
ages of 7 to 14, Jnolusive, who did not attend
school during the year 1992-1903. Regarding
the enforcement of the law, reports from
county superintendents show that forty
nine of the counties enforce It "In part,"
eight "are trying to enforce," thirty-one
report that "It Is enforced," two report "it
has had good effect," one says "sentiment
Is growing in favor of the law," one "no
complaint," one "not very well," four re
port "not enforced" and one reports "en
forced In rural schools only."
The superintendent recommends that sec
tion one of the act providing for com
pulsory attendance be repealed and Uat
the following be enacted In lieu there)?.
Any person having the control of any
child of 7 years of age or over. In proper
physical and mental condition to attend
school, diall cause such ca id to attend
some private or parochial school where
the common school branches of rending,
writing, spelling, grammar, arithmetic,
geography, physiology and I'nlted States
history are taught, or attend uponequival
ent Instruction by a competent teacher
elsewhere than school until such child has
completed the eighth grade of the ele
mentary common school course, and has
received from the county superintendent a
certificate certifying to the completion of
the work required, and that all children
shall attend school during the entire t'me
school Is In session, unless excused for
good and sufficient cause by the Judge of
the district court.
Commenting on this proposed amendment
to the law, the report says:
Such change as is here suggested con
templates that the child should have a cer
tain degree of education before being per
mitted to leave school. Why should a cnlld
not be compelled to remain in school until
16 or even 18 years of age, if by a failure
on his own part to apply himself during the
earlier vears of lifo he falls to reach a
certain degree of proficiency In his studies?
May it not be that a boy who Is compelled
of teachers of S3 or 14 a month, but this will
not show In the statistical reports until
next year. In regard to high school educa
tion Prof. Barrett would have some form
of state payment of the tuition of non
resident pupils In the high schools, so that
a high school education would be literally
free to all the children of the state.

H. O. Jackson, who owns a ranch In

dicted by the grand Jury of Jasper county
on a charge of obtaining property . by
false pretenses. He purchased $30,000 worth
of cattle from Albert Harrah and paid only
$4,000 on the same. It Is claimed that he
misrepresented Ms financial condition and
obtained credit in thla way and that si no
the purchase he has sold a portion of the

has a good defense and that It is only a
case of disagreement over a deal, that the
reason the cattle have not been paid for
Is that he never received certain pedigrees
which were to have been deliverd.to him.
