Ths ikm-psymsnt by property owners of
tha taxes assessed for the paving of
Thirtieth street, from Q street south to Y,
1 causing the city authorities some little
trouble and also some expense.
, . Several weeks ago an Hem was printed
In The Bee to the effect that the Thirtieth
street, property owners had refused to pay
the Special paving: taxes, alleging that thera
Were several weak points in the ordinances.
At that time mention was made of the
fact that the cost of paving this street,
which amounted to about $22,000. would
eventuallyroave to be paid by the city al
A' new feature came to light yesterday
i when it' was the intention to pay to the
r. paving v .contractors. Parks. Johnson
Parks. $T.S7 reserve money. After Clerk
...Ollljn. had drawn the warrant In pursuance
to aa order from the city council It was
found that' the city treasurer had used the
... ieeerve fund to pay. two of the paving
bonds -which. !! due not long ago. There
nag a hasty Consultation between city of
. flclals, and ft n decided to borrow the
money'.' 0 pay Parks the reserve from one
of tha banks. -The. loan. Is to be a short
time' one end Is to be taken up when prop
erty 'Owners' pay Into the treasury the
amount due fur thts paving.
It has been customary In holding back
money die on paving contracts for a year
. to- Invest- the same In a certificate of de
"- posit and pay to the contractor when the
vctfr la up the reserve and Interest at the
! rate, -of. . per -.cent. When the Thirtieth
Mroet paving' was completed and the final
atlmates" nllowcd Parks. Johnson & Parks
tasked -permlssjon to give a surety bond In
Tilaee of the reserve, but the council would
',not hear" ,t6 this.: The Intention was to In
struct tb city treasurer (to Invest this re
'serve for a year, but the matter was over

paving-f and Instead of being mvesieu,
Wheri.the bonds became due the treasurer
"paid (he amount out of the reserve and
consequently 'when Parks called for his
money -yesterday he found the fund ex

OMAHA, Dec. 5. To the Editor of The
Hee: I had no Idea that Bishop Bcanncll
was such a humorist, for excommunicating
s good-looking young woman because she
actc-d as bridesmaid In high social affairs Is
indeed the very essence of a Joke. Excom
munication, forsooth! Why, none know bet
ter than the reverend gentleman himself
that even In matters of violation of church
discipline Itself which this act cannot by
any stretch of ecclesiastical authority be
called -- excommunications have been
through all time flat failures. Luther was
excommunicated. but the reformation
flourished. Henry VIII was excommuni
cated, hut England was not held to the
faith. Free Masonry was excommunicated,
but the body only grew stronger. History
does not record a single instance In which
excommunications had any results, other
than the opposite of the effects desired.
Theologically, too, an excommunication
cannot lie, according to the best Roman
Catholic theologians, in any case where the
co'nsclence of the Roman Catholic approves
the act, as In Dr. McOlynn's rase. Besides,
the most the reverend bishop can do Is to
make, or attempt to make, his position "a
reserved case," and Instruct his priests to
fefuse the women In question the sacra
ments. In that dilemma all these women
have to do Is to cross the ecclesiastical line
Into another diocese where they will be ad
mitted to the sacrament. So these women
can enjoy the unique position of being here
tics In one diocese and orthodox In another.
Of course the whole thing Is a tempest In
a teapot, which will quickly pass, and tend
only to bring the once dreaded anathema of
excommunication Into a current of contempt.-
To common sense Catholics a calm, digni
fied exhortation from the reverend bishop
to his flock to quietly discountenance such
functions as caused the Irate utterance
would be more Just and productive of bet
ter results.
There Is still another, and a non-Catholic,
view of the bishop's side. The parties to
the ceremony were both Protestants, pre
sumably acting In accordance with law and
their own conscience, Why should any
Catholic object to attending for the cause
assigned any more than because the prin
cipals attended a Methodist church or were
subscribers to the thirty-nine articles?

, Comes to Omaha to Spend
Cold Season.
Colonel William McCune has returned
to his native heath after a summer spent
with the Buffalo Bill show In France and
la quartered at the Merchants for the
winter. He has Just returned from the
reservations, where he left the Indians
which were with the show during the sum
mer and says he escaped all of the frontier
games and returns well prepared tor a
winter's rest In Omaha.
"The Indians were good sailors, although
they did not take well to the German cook
ing on the boat we used." said Colonel
McCune, "the grjb not agreeing with them
very well. After a long tiresome season tn
France, Colonel Cody thought he would
give the men the advantage of a scenic
trip and consequently pent them Via Naples,
Oenoa, Olbralter and Morroco. The boat
was a regular tourist's boat and we were
fourteen days from Naples to New Tork.
Tha Indians were often pressed Into service
to give an exhibition before the cabin
passengers and amuned them with dances
and songs. '
"The people In the southern part of
France are a hard lot In some cases and
several times we were called upon to cry
"Hey Rube" and give them a good drubbing
before we could load the ahow. In Naples
our electrician. "Mr. Ballej-, had his wife
ashore with several of us and she gave
him her purse to carry and after we had
gone about thirty feet she asked him for
It to buy a post-card and It was gone. We
had been advised to keep our coats but
toned, but did not see how the thieves
could work so quickly. Bailey threatened
to kill the first organ grinder - we struck
after we reached America.
"The Indians all had a nice piece ot
money coming when we reached the
reservation. We do not pay them until
the season Is over, but protect their money
for them until they return to the res
ervation." ,'

Charles Weston, ex-stste auditor, will be
candidate for the republican nomination
for governor. This announcement was
made In Omaha Wednesday afternoon and.
though It did not come direct from Mr.

doubted. During the last year Mr. Weston

date for governor or for United States
senator, but It Is now stated with authority
that he will try for the gubernatorial chair.
Some weeks ago Mr. Weston stated he
would not say anything regarding politics

Railroad Official Thinks He aa Well

Protected. v .-
wish the president had gone further
and urged that a limit be placed onthe
number of hours ot employment In rail
road headquarters and offices," remarked
an- official at one of the big headquarters
buildings In Omaha, who, personally. Is
strongly opposed to working clerks long
hours. "I think the president la right In
recommending that the men who run -the
trains be not overworked as to hours and,
seriously, I think he could well afford to
Investigate the situation In the big railroad
headquarter. It Is not right that clerks,
who get small pay, should be compelled to
put in such long hours. In many Instances
they are required to work all day. and far
Into the night. Thta Is the case here In
Omaha and many a young man Is paying
dear tribute to this custom with his very
vitality. . .
'There is just this difference between
the clerk working overtime and the man
on the train or in the shops putting In
extra hours: The clerk? does 1t without any
extra pay, while tha railroader or shopman
gets extra pay pay , and a half aa they
call It. So, you see, the injustice to the
clerk is all the worse. After all, the me
chanic who la protected by his union has
got the better of the bargain. The me
chanic geta better pay, works shorter hours
and gets extra pay fr working overtime.
"I wish the president had gone Into this
matter, too."

George If. Murray, representing a New

In time to have legal papers served on those
