GRADES TRANSFERRED TO HIGH SCHOOL
Boar Would Uke to Establish a V
School, hmt fund Are ot la
Sight for Patoie- Paplla
Walk Two Miles.
Except informally talking over the mst
ter the Board of Education has not taken
any steps toward the erection of a grade
school building In the northeastern portion
of the city. Another school building east
of the street car tracks on Twenty-fourth
street la badly needed and doubtless one
would be arranged for this winter were It
not for the fact that a statement of the
finances of the school district shows that
there will be an overlap at the end of the
school year of about 1S,0. Hawthorne
school Is overcrowded and In order to make
room for the Increase In the number of
pupils three gradca have been moved from
this school to tho High school building.
One eighth grade school was transferred
from the Hawthorne to the High school
building some weeks ago and yesterday
two sixth grade schools were located In
rooms on the ground floor of the High
school building. These two sixth grades
number 120 pupils. The teachers trans
ferred from the Hawthorne to the High
school building are Miss Elsie Montgom
ery, Miss Genevieve Maddox and Mlaa
Ethel Yost. .
Pupils living as far east as Thirteenth
street and who formerly attended the Haw-
I thorne school are now compelled to walk
i ch ar to the High school, funding. Borne
' ir the pupils live nenrly two hilles from the
; High school and In severe wenther the long
walk will be extremely hard on these
i chlldien who live so far away. With an-
other ward scnool building in the north-
eaft portion of tho city the. overcrowded
condition of Hawthorne school would be
greatly relieved and pupils would not have,
nearly so far to wulk. It Is possible that
the Board of Education may ct fkid some
way to secure the funds for another school
Mre Trouble About Foundations.
When work was commenced on the foun
dation of Wie I'nlon Pacific passenger sta
tion on Twenty-seventh, between M and
N streets. It was not thought there would
be and trouble about putting In the
foundations. Much to the surprise of those
in charge of the work the excavating Is
caving In and the trenches till rapidly with
water. A great deal of lumber la being
used in bracing the walls of the excava
tions and every effort Is being put forth
to hold the walls long enough for the con
crete foundation walls to be set. Work
men are having a hard time digging In tho
mud and It Is almost impossible to secure
men for this kind of work.
Timber boxes ure being used to mold the
concrete for the foundation walla below
the surface. It Is presumed that the, water
comes from the springs and creeks, which
formerly flowed through the land where
the railroad tracks- are now laid. On ac
count of the trouble with the cave-ins the
work on the passenger station Is not pro
gressing as rapidly as wus expected. Noth-
, . ,, , ,. ... ..
Ing has been done for two weeks on the
Vnlon Pacific freight depot soutli of N
street. Heavy timbers still brace, the walls I
of the excavation to prevent the ground
1 from caving In and the tracks from sliding
; Into the big hole.
! Every Fair Uay t'onnta.
( "Every fair day now counts a greiyt d"al."
' said James Parks yesterday. In speaking of
' tho piivlng on 'Tweiily-fourth street".' "We
. are. using nil the men we can get and sM'l
want more tp go to work at 20 cents :tn
The concrete mixer is working steadily
and the five Inch concrete lase for the pave
ment Is going down rapidly. This work can
continue .hist us long as the temperature
does not drop too low for the successful
use of cement. The old asphalt pavement
Is now helng torn up between I and J
streets. Most of J he old pavement clear to
I street hns been broken up and hauled
away. If the weather holds good until the
concrete base Is down the laying of the
paving brick on two inches of sand can bo
done even If the temperature is near the
Contractor McOowan has about com
pleted the curbing of Missouri avenue to
Twentieth street. Some work was being
done yesterday at the Intersection of Twen
tieth and Missouri avenue. With two or
three exceptions both sides of the avenue
are now cdrla'd to a point west of Nine
teenth street. These exceptions are where
the washouts are so deep that curbing can
not be set until considerable filling is done.
This filling Is to lie made when the roadway
Is graded for the pavers.

GET PROFITS OF INSURANCE BUSINESS
City F.lecrtrln Compiles Interesting
Flcnrea In t oarae of Ills
Fight for Redaction
In his efforts to compel a reduction In fire
Insurance rates In Omaha City F.lectriclnn
Mlchaelsen has compiled some Interesting
figures showing the Immense amount of
money taken out of Obi alia each year nnd
the handsome profit the Insurance com
panies make out of the Omaha policy-hold
ers.. These figures will be turned over to
the committee at pointed by the Commerc'al
club to look Into the matter.
During the yer 1W2, the last year In
which the Insurance companies filed with
the city authorities such statistics, the
total amount of money paid for fire Insur
ance was $671, 400 and the total flrn losseu
that year aggregated W!.GiX. The totl
amount being paid now for Are Insurance
Mr. Mlchaelsen estimates. Is at the least
1600,000 a year. . i
"The losses for the last ten years," said
Mr. Mlchaelsen, "averaged 1173.000, a year.
Allowing the companies jo per cent for
running the business. It would leave Omaha
contributing aa "a net profit to the fire In
surance companies from Sluo.OU) to tOOO.utO
each year. t
tlasls of Profit.
"This profit Is based on the figures which
the companies have filed with the city
authorities under the old law nnd does not
count the rebates and the reinsurance busi
ness, which would Increase their profits.
Another thing. In figuring their profits, the
salvage Is not .considered. When a large
fire occurs the companies puy the face
of the policy and take the wreckage. This
wreckage Is taken by them to Chicago or
some other city by some of their own or
ganisations and there disposed of, which
also contributes to their profits, which are
not considered In the above figures.
"After the wires were put under ground
the Insurance companies were only asked
to -make a reduction of points, which
would amount to 115,000 or JJO.ouO, and they
should have been glad to concede that.
Now that they have refused they should
be fought for a still greater reduction.
If Chicago and New York ure to get all
of the profits of this business they should
send the money out nere to Keep up our
fire department and help us protect them
against Are loss. While It Is true Omaha
rates aro not much higher than a lot of
other cities, there is nn reason why an
Insurance company should iiuike such enor
RESULT PLEASES UNCLE SAM
Obviates Big Expense and Trouble of
Long, Incertaln l.eal
"We are naturally gratified over the out
come of the Bartlett. Richards and W. G.
Comstock cases," said United States Dis
trict Attorney Baxter Tuesday morning.
"The plea of guilty In their cases was un
expected, ss wo hsd anticipated a strong
and expensive fight wi'h tlitin. They were
first indicted by the federal grand Jury after
the November term of lDTtl, being one of the
first formal Indictments brought for Illegal
' fencing of government lands. Subsequently
i indictments were found against them In
1904 and 1905. the last I wo being merely
to verify and fortify the original indict
ment. In the meanwhile-1 he gos-erhment
has been ready for trial on two occasions,
but continuances were obtained by the de-
fendunts on fomn pretext or other. We
were anxious to bring the case to trial, as
it was the backbone of the opposition to
removing rences In the northwestern part
i of the state,
It was the determined Inten-
tlon of the government lo puh the case
against them to the full extent of the law.
Hence the admission bf their guilt was
I very gratifying to the government. These
defendants were men of large means and
were able to employ the most competent
counsel and hence we were anticipating a
long and hard flsht.
"The result o' this confession to the
plea of the government will have a most
salutary effect. The government has not
sought to persecute these men or any of
the cattlemen, but simply to secure the
public domain to the equal rights and
privileges of all. We look now for the
general removal of the fences on the pub
lic lands and between that the outcome of
the Richards and Comstock cases will be
' the stimulus to a speedy removal of the
fences. However, the government will not
temporize In tho matter at all. All cases
now pending for illegal fencing will be
most vigorously prosecuted and the fences
must come down. We shall also energet
ically prosecute all caaea of fraudulent
homestead and land entries. We exect to
tart In on other cases at the earliest

WARE INSERTS HIS PROBE

that It Is Not
In line with what recently appeared In
The Bee touching the intention of the
Board of County Commissioners, when re
organized, to Insist on economy. It now
develops that Attorney John D. Ware has
been delving Into laws passed by the last
legislature with the same end In view.
It will be recalled that last snrlna Mr.
j Ware tiled with the board a formal protest
ngAlnst Uf'nlrowancr'of th"full claim of
j the electric light company for service to
, the county buildings. At the time the bill
j were already held up and when paid It
j was at a reduction of something like 31, 000.
Mr. Ware's new lead, If he concludes to
take action, will be along the line of In-
i slating that the board adhere strictly to
! the law in making contracts and paying
i bills. Ha takes the position that the board
has no right whatever to make a contract
of any kind unless the money (s in the
treasury to pay for the same. He says
that under the law what Is known as the
"overlap" (expenses Incurred In one year
and running Into the next) cannot be taken
care of from the current levy.
"For doing business that way," said Mr.
Ware, "the county commissioners person
ally and their bondsmen are clearly liable,
as I understand the law. From what I can
learn the Board of County Commissioners
has been letting contract and Incurring
expenses without much. If any, notion of
