In the city he visited The Bee office bulld-

While In the city General Greely, In com

the new urmy signal poet at Fort Omaha
and 'expressed himself as much pleased
with the progress of affnlrs there.
"I am Just on my return from Alaska,
where we have been putting the United
Estates signal service system In shape,
covering a distance of 1,40 miles," said
the general. "We have a cable line from

In respoDse to an inquiry relative to the
establishment of the Fort Omaha signal
station, he said:
' Fort Omaha will be made the head
quarters of the signal service of the United
states army, supplanting Fort Meyer, Va.
Four of the twelve companies of the sKnal
service will be stationed here as soon as
accommodations can be prepared for them.
Two of the companies will be here in about
two weeks to take station. It Is not prob
able that any balloon experiments will be
made at Fort Omaha, because of the ir-rt-gularity
of the air currents In this sec
tion. , However, the Fort Omaha signal
achool will be the most important one In
the country and will be the main signal
t-rvlce school for the army. The newly
rehabilitated fort la admirable for the

Fifth ravalry, to, undertake an expedition
to the frozen seas of the north, with the
ostensible purpose of establishing a supply
depot at the farthest point accessible for
future Arctic explorers. The rarty set sail
from ft. Johns. Newfoundland. July 7.
1W1. After Incredible hardships the party
finally established a depot at Thirty Frank
lin bay and began exploring the frozen
seas from that point, rendering incalcula
ble service In their varied meterologtcal
observations Jto the science of polar re
search. While at Tdy Franklin hay two
of his party, Lieutenant Lockwood and
Rergeant Bralnard. traveled to within SH6
miles of the geographical pole, the farthest
point then reached by nny Arrtlc explorer
and since only exceeded hy Dr. Nansen by
less than a degree. The supplies of the
Greely party becoming low and fhe ex
pected relief expeditions falling them, the
party started on its return to Cape Pa-
bine, 20n miles southward, where arrange
ments had been made to meet them with
a relief expedition fitted out by the United
One of Moat Thrilling: Storlea.
The march of the little party of Intrepid
explorers from Idy Franklfn hay to Cape
Sabine comprise one of the most thrilling
slortea of human endurance and travel.
Most of the party perished on the march
and had to be abandoned. Finally, after
the most Incredible hardships, the ema
ciated remnant of the party reached Cape
Sabine. They built a sort of shelter from
the fragments of an old tent and managed
to live in It. suffering untold privations
from hunger, scurvy and cold for several
months. Their food supplies, meager as
they were, had become exhausted and they
were reduced to the extremity of eating
their skin clothing and hoots; and finally
this precarious sustenance was exhausted
and the men 'gave themselves up for Inst
and reconciled themselves to a miserable
death. Occasionally one or two of the
stronger members of the party crawled out
of their miserable hovel and found a few
shrimp, which gave them a little longer
lease of life. However, with but six of the
party now surviving, all hope was not com
pletely abandoned and from the highest
point at their refuge at Cape Sabine a
fragment of the tent was unfurled from
a makeshift pole torn from one of the
sleds. A short whlfc prior to the final res
cue of the party a United States vessel
approached In slirht of Cape Pahlne. but.
eelng no sign of life there, sailed away

However, on July 21, 1"A, Captain Win
field Scott Schley, commanding an Ameri
can naval vessel, appeared off Cape Sahine
In search of the Greely party and saw the
flutering piece of tent cloth. The result
was the rescue of the party of survivors,
six In number. Had Captain Schley delayed
his visit twelve hours longer the entire
party would have perished As it was they
were In the most pitiable condition. Cap
tain Greely was temporarily blind and de
lirious and the others were so emaciated
from their privations and sufferings as to
be unable to move or sn.uk.

BIG CROWDS IN BOTH TOWNS

Alfred Darlow. advertising manager for
the Union Pacific, has returned from Chey
enne and Denver, where he went to attend
the Frontier day celebration and the Grand
Army of the Republic convention.
Mr. Darlow said:
"Frontier day was a big success and has
grown to be the largest and grandest cele-
untiiuii m us mno. in tne world. I was
there Monday, the (hlrd day, and there
were over 10.000 people on the grounds to
witness the pranks of. the cowboys, the
Indians, the wild horses and the wild steers.
There was nothing artificial about it and
nothing of the kind has ever approached
it in grandeur and successful management.
"There were SMVio extra people In Denver
because of the Grand Army of the Republic
and the cheap rates, and yet there was no
confusion nor disorder. The story of peo
ple having no place to sleep is all foolish
ness. Denver Is the Ideal convention city
because of the mountains, parks. hotls
and climate. The people there seemed to
live on the streets; they were out at all
times of the day. This was the grandest
convention ever held In Denver and Denver
t.aa pulled off some good ones at that,
which I am not overlooking."

for alleged contempt of court in violating
the restraining order Issued out of his
court last Wednesday afternoon.
In reaching this decision and giving his
Instructions to the county attorney Judge
Sutton spoke in severe terms of what he
bluntly called "the conspiracy of these
councllmen to violate the order of the
The court reviewed recent Injunction his
tory In Douglas county, as affecting the
city council, and said:
"It is common knowledge in Omaha that
for a long time certain of the councllmen
have been organized and prepared to treat
with contempt any order that might be
issued against them by the courts. They
have publicly announced that Intention, and
at least one councilman was quoted hy the
newspapers aa having made that declara
tion on the floor, of the council.. All of the
equity Judges of this county have thor
oughly understood this.
"I am not, therefore, surprised at the
action of the council In ignoring the re
straining order Issued In this matter, and
I am of opinion that a speedy hearing and
Investigation of this complaint should be

I nope I am mistaken about some of
these things I have mentioned, but 1
certainly shall not allow any other pro
ceeding to Interfere with this matter of
contempt. Right now is the time to take
up and settle the complaint against these
councllmen. 1 do not want to In the least
prejudice their rights, but I feel I should
not do anything to help them carry out
their conspiracy against the order of the
This latter remark was made In giving
a refusal to Attorney Connell's request
that the Issue as it might affect the mayor
ought to be decided at once, as Mayor
Moores has only until next Tuesday to
sign or return the gas ordinance to the
The court continued:
"1 rare nothing at all about the parties
In issue. I certainly would not allow
myself to be made a party to pulling
any chestnuts out of the fire for the
electric light company, and 1 have no
personal Interest in the gaa company or
in the official acts of the councllmen. as
such. But if these oouncllmen have done
everything they could to violate the order
of this court they are not to be excused
by any other intervening proceeding.
The important question right now. be
yond all others, is: Did the court have
Jurisdiction to Issue the restraining order

up as part of the defense In the contempt
proceeding and will be subject to proof or
Judge Sutton's peremptory order to the
county attorney was made after a hearing
of sn hour. Attorney Oilier, asking for
the contempt order, on behalf of T. W.
Blackburn, who secured the restraining or
der, and Attorneys Connell and Rreen the
one strongly against the proceeding, the
other tentatively so had presented their
contentions at length. Mr. Oilier empha
sized the alleged Indignity to the court
and the bar smd suggested that half a
dozen members of the latter organization
should be called Into the case to possibly
outline a remedy. He also presented af
fidavits, sworn to hy himself and President
Zlmmsn of the council, giving a detailed
account of the court and council proceed
ings In the case. He closed by demanding
the offending councllrrfan should be at once
placed In Jail.
Mr. Connell In opening was sarcastic In
his allusions to Messrs. Rlackbiirn. Weaver
and Glller. the legal wranglera. or appli
cants, c.n the other side. He likewise shot
a few warm allusions at the electric light
company and the Douglas County Bar as
sociation and threw out a aly hint as to
barristers without briefs. Then he set
tled down to a discussion of the surround
ing facts and circumstances which he
said had to be taken Into consideration.
No Contempt tor Court.
"The members of the city council have
only the highest respect for your honor.
This restraining ord?r was not treated In
a contemptous manner. It was secured at
the last hour before action was to be taken
on an ordinance that had to be reported
out under a time limit. The councllmen
were given no opportunity to be heard in
court. And. In any event, tne restraining
order merely enjoins them from passing
the ordinance, not from ronslderng or
voting on It. We claim It never was
passed and Is not in any sense a legal or
dinance." Mr. Connell then offered a separate an
swer on behalf of Mayor Moores and asked
a hearing on It forthwith. He contended
that such a hearing would develop all the
facts and that It could he readily shown
that this case waa not in the aame shape as
cases cited by counsel pleading for the con
tempt order. He also dwelt on the fact
that the mayor has, under the charter,
until next Tuesday to sign, veto or return
the ordinance aa not a legal one.
Sutton Ready to Act.
When City Attorney Breen had stated
that he represented the four councilmen
who refused to vote on ths ordinance, Mr.
Giller arose to elaborate on his argument.
Judge Sutton stopped him by saying: "The
court is ready to decide 'this at once." He
then spoke substantially as quoted above.
At the end of Judge Sutton's talk Attor
ney Connell again attempted to have the
court take action on the mayor s end of the
case first. City Attorney Breen likewise
suggested that a demurrer proceeding might
solve the question of whether or not the
court had Jurisdiction ab Initio over the
persons and the subject matter. Then there
was a lot of legal sparring, but the court
was firm in Insisting that the proceeding
against the councllmen for alleged con
tempt should be heard first, and as quickly
All of the attorneys. Mr. Connell espe
cially, aald the sooner the hearing waa

NO SURFACEW0RK FOR HIMf
Careful Observer Cannot Stand for
Man Who Won't
"A man after my own heart Is one that
probes Into the hidden meaning of things."
remarked the Careful Ohserver yesterday
afternoon, as he and the Oldest Inhabitant
moved away from a phonograph that was
desecrating the flag by playing "The Star
Spangled Banner." with a broken record.
"Tes, Indeed," continued the Infinitely
careful one. "a man that lives out his
little life from day to day by merely ac
cepting things at their face value, without
dipping Into the stream and bringing up
the hidden mysteries and beauties, will
not get much out of life, will not have
his cognomen Inscribed In the hall of fame,
nor will he see his name In the advertised
letter list, or be asked to say a few words
on public occasions. I have tried both
ways and never got In on the money until
I shouldered my little spade and began
turning up the sod and otherwise making
my presence felt."
"You have again struck a paying lead,"
replied the Oldest Inhabitant. as he
stopped at a window to view some horse
show clovhes and light his pipe. "Time
was when I would Just drift along with
the current, would never grumble about
the weather or the irlce of gas and would
never ask whether the white elephant at
the circus was whitewashed or the real
thing. I Just took things as they came,
paid my money and took my pick without
asking whether the eggs might be fresh
or cold storage variety. But now It is
different, for I walk boldly up and ask the
man what Is what and take a second look
at the substance before I Jump for the
shadow. There Is a hidden meaning, an
obscured significance, In everything and It
