On application Judge Redlck, sitting In
chamber, gi anted an order on defendants
to sl.nw cause Wednesday morning, August
2M, why they should not place the names
of the petitioners on the primary ballot as
candidates for the office of county com-
inlKsloner. If this order shag be granted,
and the prayer of the petitioners prevail.
It will mean the county clerk and treasurer
will have to show cause why they do not
accept the money of petitioners and place
their names on the primary ballot.
Should Judge Redlck decide that peti

Which ever way the decision of the Judge
may go, there will be an appeal to the
supreme court. As this latter body does
not meet until September 4, all hands will
have to wait until a day or two after that
date for a decision; but the men who have

Breea Bays Officials Erred.
Attorney Breen says:
"The county clerk and the mimiv tru,.
urer are wrong4. A close study of the law
under which these officials take their po
sition shows it provides that counties that
change from the three to the five com
missioner plan, shall elect the two new
oinrers at the next general election on an
even numbered year. Now, Douglas county
has had five commissioners for twelve
yoars, and the t.ew law simply does not
apply. As a result the general election
laws govern, and In my opinion, the terms
of the commissioners from the Third and
Fifth district expire this year, and their
successors must be nominated and elected
this fall. We do not Intend to test the
constitutionality of the law, but to prove
that It Is not germane to the affairs of
Douglas County."

More C'rnnklnK to Start Engine
or Trouble with Sparker, Not
to Speak of Smell of
Pupils of the Saunders school no longer
will have their esthetic sense offended by
the smell of gasoline. The Board of Edu
cation last night decided to Jerk out tha
gasoline engine that has furnished power
to operate the fans for three years and to
put In an electric motor. The gasoline en
gine will be sold and the new motor will
cost t'J0. Here Is a list of the reasons
given by Member Rice for the change:
Will prevent the Jiinitor from getting
fatigued applying crank.
Will give the board a chance to clip $3
a montn off the Janitor's salary.
Will save money In the long run in mat
ter of repairs.
Will obviate the unpleasant smell Of
gasoline in the basement and school.
Will lessen the chances of an explosion
and demolition of the building.
Will enable the board to pay from :
to l.TO a month for electric power Instead
of 1S for gasoline, plus $5 bonus to the
Janitor for "cranking" or making the
sparker mark. ,
Secretury Burgess skeletonised the read
ing of the minutes and thereby saved much
time. In return he received a two weeks'
vacation, the first In five years, which he
' will spend with a daughter in Canada.
Henry Hensley was elected Janitor of
the new Omaha Heights school at Thirty
sixth street and Kansas avenue. This Is
a new school and a new Job, the building
being the old Monmouth Park school. .
Mary C. Smith, Alice Bradman and Alice
C. Gilchrist resigned as teachers. Miss
Bradman said she was going to take up

come up. The buildings and grounds com
mittee reported that none of the additions
to schools would be completed for some
wteks and rooms will b rented temporarally
In the districts where the schools were
overcrowded last year. It was for tho
purpose of giving the committee time to
rent outside rooms and furnish them that
the opening date was deferred for one
week beyond the usual time.
Janitors were assigned as follows:
High School Frank Voeasek; firemen J.
B. Smith, James Hamilton.
Central Harry Real, John Klupnaur.

Member Schlndle brought up the mat
ter of naming two principals to fill vacan
cies, but as the members could not agree
Superintendent McLean will be directed
by the chairman of the teachers' commit
tee to make the assignment.
Five sets of encyclopedias and the same
number of pictorial and historical .maps

The board then adjourned until the next
regular meeting.
Council Meeting Tame.
President Adklns occupied the chair at
the meeting of the council Monday night
owing to the absence of Mayor Koutsky.
Ordinances were to have been presented
for the paving of Twenty-fourth street
from A to Q. City Attorney Lambert had
failed to get, the ordinances prepared In time
and a meeting is to- be held on Wednesday
night, when the ordinances may be .ready.
It was the same with accepting the plans
for the fire department headquarters build
ing. The matter of accepting or declining
the plans was talked over, but no decision
was reached. It was agreed, however, that
this matter would also be considered
Wednesday night.
A favorable report was made on the or
dinance for the grading of Twenty-second
street from S to Y. This, ordinance can now
go to the second and third reading. One
permanent sidewalk ordinance was passed
and one was Introduced,
The session was the shortest for some
time and was wholly without interest.
Ken yon Files Protest.
W. J. C. Kenyon. general manager of the
Union Stock Yards company, has sent to
the mayor and council a protest against
the granting of a petition filed by J. C,
Caldwell a couple of weeks ago.
Caldwell asks the city to give him permls
slon t? erect a frame structure at the east
end of the Q street Viaduct. It Is under
stood that Mr. CaldweH wants to open a
candy and cigar store. ' .
Mr. Kenyon's remonstrance is based on
the grounds that the viaduct 1b kept In re
pair by the Union Pacific and the Union
Stock Yards company and officials of these
companies do not want to run the risk of
fire In this proposed small building damag
ing the bridge. In addition to a general
protest, the general manager of the Stock
Yards company serves notice on the city
that If the Caldwell request Is granted the
railroad companies will decline to make
repair in case the viaduct Is damaged by
reason of the erection of the proposed frame
After being read to the council last night
the protest was ordered filed.
Moving School Annex.
A portion of the old high school annex
Is being moved from Twenty-sixth and M
street to Brown park. The section now at
tached to a cable la being hauled east on
M street. When between Twenty-fourth
and Twenty-fifth street Monday afternoon
a number of large electric wires had to be
taken down. Electric lights and fans In the
business portion of the city could not be
used for an hour or so. It will probably
take about two weeks to get both of the
sections of the building moved and placed
on foundations.

Sheep Commence Coming.
Monday's receipts of sheep numbered
17,5iiO head, the largest receipts In any one
day this year. Tho majority of the seventy

.wanted here, but some wise ones declare
that the feeders are being held hack as
long as possible on account of the fine
range. On account of the heavy receipts
the prices fell off on both packers' supplies
and killers.
