"Representing the Board of Fire and
Police Commissioners, I wish to pay public
testimony aa to the worth and faithfulness
f the firemen whose losa we deplore. They
were In the service of the city for varying
periods, one for eight years and none much
leaa than two years. It la but a plain duty
to atata that the records of the Fire and
Police board show that during the time
theae men were on the rolls not a single
- charge waa lodged against them. They
were not negligent In the performance of
their duty, guilty of misconduct of any
kind and It la proven that they were faith
ful In discharging email dutlea aa well aa
fearless and ' brave In great emergencies.
' Their glory Is as great aa can come to any
man, because they did their full duty and
paid the full price.'

QUEER SORT OF PROHIBITION
Featares ( Sew Hssspskire's Rev
I.laaor Law aad Its Black
When the state of New Hampshire re
pealed the prohibition law and adopted a
new statute governing the sale of liquor It
waa understood that thereafter a ahrlna to
Bacchus might be set up here and there at
which a conaumlng thirst might be reason
ably asauaged. 'At least this waa the clear
Intent of the lawmakers. Fancy their sur
prise, therefore, to discover that the new
law haa been bo Interpreted as to Introduce
a aort of prohibition compared with which
the old style waa a liberal license.
Ex-Oovernor Ooodell la now clothed with
the authority of a Justice of the peaoe. Ha
la not only a teetotaler, but one or tnose
who believe that because they don't drink
no one else should. He finds that under
the law it la left to the discretion and Judg
ment of the magistrates to determine what
persona ahall not be permitted to aecure
liquor at the saloons.
In Mr. Goodell's Judgment liquor Is bad
for anyone, and bo he ha aet out to apply
the law aa he thlnka it ahould be enforced.
Starting with the town of Hlllaboro he haa
presented ita lone saloon keeper with a
blacklist which Includes all the voter of
the town. Of course, the men thua posted
are protesting vigorously, but Mr. Goodell
nmiim firm, tta has bea-un to run a little
prohibition game of his own, and he pro
posea to keep It up until every port 01 me
state haa been covered.
When he gets into the cltlea his blacklist
will be the city directory; In the amaller
towna he will use the voters' lists. And If
he should succeed the situation In that
state will be aomethlng like this: Saloon
keepers may open their bars, well stocked
with liquors, but cttlaena whose names hap
pen to be on the votera1 list or In the di
rectory cannot buy a drink in New Hamp
shire. The casual visitor or commercial
traveler will have to do all the drinking.
And we may fanor the feeling of the
thirsty native who watchea the casual vis
itor vettlna- aittiidcallv Intoxicated, while

IMPROVERS INA FAMILY ROW
Omaha, Tlew flak Haa a Nlee Tielah
fcerly Jaagle Over a Street
The Omaha View Improvement club had
one of the liveliest sessions of Its history
last night. The trouble grew out of the
report of the etreet committees, which had
been directed to aee If some relief could
not be given Mrs. Lyon's property on
Maple street, that had been damaged by
a fill In tha street to such an extent that
her property is badly flooded during heavy
rains. The committee, through its chair
man, Mr. Olson, reported that arrange
ments had been about concluded whereby
Mrs. Lyons waa to obtain the relief asked,
and had wanted the club to vote on the
proposition aa to whether the members
favored having the dirt removed from In
front of her property. Before the vote waa
put Dan Callahan, president of the club,
resigned the chair to Vice. President Frank
Forbes, stating; that he wished to speak
on the proposition.
Chairman Olson, of the street committee,
charged Mr. Callahan with being opposed to
the proposition, and that he had on Mon
day last threatened to enjoin the removal
of the flirt at thla location aa It would
work an Injury to his property, and this
started the fun.
Mrs. Lyons, the sggrieved party, ac
cused Callahan ef double dealing In the
matter, and waa aupported In the statement
by Olaon and a wordy wrangle ensued.
Callahan maintained that his property
would be greatly damaged by any attempt
to change the grade of the street, and
atated that he had already paid over $2,000
to put hla property in shape from former
grades on Maple street, which he thought
was about hla share and that he could net
submit to any further changes In the grade,
even though Mrs. Lyons' property waa dam
aged. Olson charged Callahan with signing
the petition for the former lowering of
the grade, and that he had been partly re
imbursed for what damagea he had sus
tained. This Mr. Callahan Indignately de
nted, and then came charges and counter
chargea of 'double dealing and unfairness.
Compliments were exchanged and It re
quired the peaceable offices of several of
the members to quiet the matter down.
Mr. Callahan left the room with the obser
vation that hla relations with the club
ended there and forever.
The incident had a rather cooling effect
on the remainder of the meeting, but the
regular order of business was resumed.
The club went Into a committee of the
whole to discuss the building proposition
and It waa finally decided, after some dis
cussion, to leave lta further consideration
for a special order of business at the meet
ing of the club to be held December 18.
On that aame evening the annual eleclon
ef officers will take place, and it was de
cided to hold no meeting on Christmas
The sidewalk committee reported that re
pairs had begun on the aldewalk near the
brick kiln property. Some desultory talk
was had on the park and boulevard ques
tion, but nothing definite was decided upon
and the club adjourned.

CHRISTIAN GOVERNOR IS PROPOSED
Police Force of Coaatry to Carry Oat
Reform Plaaa May Be Composed
of Mem Xamed by
LONDON, Dec. I. Negotiations began
today by the powers rray result in an In
ternational administration for Macedonia
along the lines observed In tha present gov
ernment of the island of Crele. The Asso
ciated Press learns that In order to prevent
another Macedonia uprising In the spring,
attended by unspeakable horrors, and the
danger of a war between Turkey and Bul
garia aa a consequence, Russia and Aus
tria have proposed to the other powera
that immediate steps be taken to put Into
operation a plnn which, In Its general out
lines, resemblea that now enforced In Crete.
This proposal is the result of the accept
ance, In principle, by the sultan three days
ago of tha Russo-Austrlan note concerning
reforma in Macedonia, which was submitted
to the Porte after the recent conference
between Czar Nicholas and Emperor Fran
cis Joseph. To what extent each power will
participate In the organisation of an inter
national gendarmerie, to be formed for tha
preservation of order and which power will
be placed in supreme command of the gen
darmerie, as well aa other details, must be
settled by the powera.
This proposal of the two powera dissi
pates the apprehension which haa prevailed
In diplomatic circles on the continent that
Russia and Austria were arranging a set
tlement of the Macedonian question in a
way to Insure their own Interests.
Will Protect Moslem Right a..
According to the Information obtained by
the Associated Press the powers will this
time unite In the appointment of a Chris
tian governor of Macedonia. While it Is In
tended that tha Christiana shall be pro
tected there la also a determination that
equal protection ahall be accorded to Mus
sulmans. All ,the powers concerned sre
anxious to aettle the difficulties In the Bal
kans, so that they can no longer menace
the peace of Europe.
It Is believed that results identical with
those obtained In Crete, are likely to follow
from the enforcement of a similar policy
In Macedonia. At first a large force was
aent to Crete, but at present there are not
mere than 1,600 men there, representing the
governments of Great Britain, France and
How the Russo-Austrian proposal will be
received by the powers la not known, aa lta
presentation only occurred today. It is be
lieved, however, that It will be acceptable
to France, Italy and Great Britain, but it
Is likely to be opposed by Germany.
Though thla. proposed action will be an
other step toward the separation of Mace
donia and Turkey there la nothing In the
proposal to Indicate that the powera have
any Intention of weakening Turklah owner

Dear Sir: Oct. 15th, 1903.
"I had been Buffering severely from kid
ney trouble. All symptoms were on hand;
my former strength and power had left
me; I could hardly drag myself along.
Even my, mental capacity was giving out,
and often I wished to die. It was then I

York paper, but would not have paid any
attention to It, had It not promised a
sworn guarantee with every bottle of your
