the proposed ' Issue of bonds does not
specify any amount nor does the ordinance
provide any accommodation for them,
'hereupon it was moved that the city at
torney should draw up an ordinance which
should set aside for the; purpose of giving
a proper sewer, to this, district, which is
denominated as sewer district No. 20, any
moneys derived from premiums on the sale
of the bonds and also any surplusag left
from the" other districts. It was thought
that with : pie liberal provisions contem
plated' under the new bond Issue this sur

' TM sc-hool board Is asking fer bids on a
new school sit which Is desired for the
erection of a new eight-room brick building
to. accommodate the large number of pupils
which are now crowding the Hawthorne
school." A- careful estimate of the expendi
tures for the balance of the year figures out
that there will be enough left for the pur
chase of this site. It is hoped with the be
ginning of the year to start tha erection of
she proposed building. There Is not enough
now. considering the expenditure of $46,000
for buildings during the past year. It Is
desired that the new building be erected as
jieaf toJTwenty-second and F streets as
possible. This will be near the center of the
district which la to bo accommodated. The
new Milldlng will cost . bet ween $20,000 and
$30,000.. .'. ' .

- A -number of the local saloons are dis
playing signs calling the attention of their
patrons to the faet that their places of
business will be closed on Sunday from
this time on, They warn tho public to
sunk up on Saturday to meet the day of
thirst. The reason for this is the order
whk.-h la said to have come from all the
breweries to their representatlvea -to close
on that day. Thla Is thought to be an
tffort on the part of the saloon men to
- keep the fire and police commission from
taking any definite action In the matter.
' l-Sr If the fire and police board passes an
, order It will be a long process to have It
undone, while If the matter passes over

contrary order at a moment's notice and

SALOON CASES TRIED FRIDAY
Peremptory Order Issaed by Jadge
Muttoa Ftxlac Time of
On the claim that City Attorney Breen
had put into his answer matters that re
quired testimony to contravene In order to
go to the supreme court, Elmer Thomas
Thursday afternoon secured from Judge
Sutton a peremptory order setting the sa
loon appeal cases for trial Friday morn
ing at t.46.
Mr. Breen at once noted an objection
and put formally on record an exception to
the order of the court, on the ground that
the case should take its regular order on
tha issue Joined by the alternative .writ
and the answer thereto.
Mr. Thomas, when the court called the
hearing on the alternative writ, said the
testimony of Charles Potter, stenographer
In the saloon cases before the Board of
Fire and Police Commissioners, would be
necessary to disprove certain things set
up In the answer of the board, as to time
required and the cost of preparing the
transcripts. He Insisted that to.&Oo, as given
In the answer, was an absurdly large
amount and made the statement the whole
cost would not exceed fl.OOO.
Mr. Breen retorted that his estimate of
expense and of time required was based
on the statement of Mr. Potter.
"I know nothing of these things myself,"
suid Mr. Breen. "My information is from
Mr. Potter himself."
The court said he would grant a reasou
able time for tho appearance of Mr. Potter,
who is In Kansas city, and named Friday
morning. At that time testimony will be
taken on the part l relator in rebuttal of

Sure, 'twas a sociable welcome they gave
Andy Mack at the Boyd theater last nljrht.
Dlvil a wan of m there but were his
friends, and all so glad to see him hack to
this country again, after stravagatlng away
to Australia and beyant. And it's the fine
lad he Is. too. No wan deserves a warn-,
welcome better nor him.
And with his Dan Maguire and his bit of
a song and his broth of a brogue did he
charm more hearts than that of Rose
Donald. It was all In the play, but he has
the winning way about lilm, and his smile
Is as bright as his heart is light, and his
laughter Is but a cause for mirth, while his
songs steal Into the hearts of the hesrre
with something of the jc-y of the singer
who sings for the pure love of singing. It
would bo a waste of time and Ink to under
take to analyse Mr. Mack's playing or his
play. He is simply a fine, manly, lovable
Irish lad. with a frank, open nature and
not a bit of meanness In his makeup, and
with his skin fairly cracking with devil
ment; Everybody wts glad when the vil
lain got his fahin' In the end,, and Dan got
the girl he loved and. the earldom of Ken
mare by way of a make-weight. It's some
thing of a tribute to the art of the star
that his auditors hang on his every word
and action, and follow his fortunes through
the four acts of the play with keen Inter
est, despite the fnct that the denouement
is as plain as the beginning. And his sing
ing Is but a part of his humor. It Is tender
and pure and sweet, those strains of Irish
melody that have been and are aa much a
part of the Emerald Isle as the brogue it
self. Along with Mr. Mack Is a company of ex
cellent players. Mr. Brandt makes Clement
Falrley quite a convincing rascal, and Mr.
McCormnck's Martin Keen Is good even If
It Is conventional. Mr. Herron is a fine bit
of . an Irishman who has never left the old
sod and who has thereby missed a chance
of 'wedding one of Its fairest daughters.
Tho German of Mr. Robertson's is undoubt
edly his own, and he Is not likely to be dis
turbed in possession of it. It Is too In
volved to be copied by one not gifted with
Infinite patience, and Germans enually serv
iceable for comedy purposes are more easily
Jonephlne Lovett Is a Rose Donald worthy
of Dan Magulre's devotion and utmost ef
fort, while M4 Berlin is a splpndld Aunt

JOHNSON FAILS OF GOOD TIME
Panne Clothlag; to Co to Theater and
Is Pinched Before Time for
A mud desire on the part of William John
sin, colored, of South Omaha, to be the gny
Lothario and go the limit in dissipation
for at least one day, is said to have led
him. Into trouble with the police yesterday.
I'pop the request of the South Omalia police
he waa located and arrested at $ o'clock
last night In this city, the Information
stating Hint he was wanted for petit lar
ceny. When searched Johnson was found to he
minus coat or vest, there being nothing be
tween his dirty shirt and limp, ragged mac
kintosh. Instead, a pawn ticket was found
In a pocket, and Johnxon explained that he
had met two women of color, and Invited
them to accompany him to the theater for
the evening. They accepted, and then
Johnson looked around for the means to
secure reals, for he had no money. What
he had when he came to Omaha was gone.
But he is, a resourceful African and he was
bound that the women should go to the
show, if It required him to take his coat
from his back, literally of course. In this
case It proved to be literally, for Johnson
went to a pawnbroker, where It m-as found
that the only things of value on his person
that he could possibly do without and still
appear on the street mere his coat and vest.
These brought $2. sufficient to secure throe
60-ccnt seats and lenve a small remainder
for candy for the fair ones. He would have
to cover his bare sleeves under the mackin
tosh throughout the play, but what of that?
That would not deter him from having a
good time with the girls. But it was not to
be. While the dusky maids waited and
waited for their coatless gallant, he was
being piloted to the city Jail, and was soon
behind the bars.
It was a sad plight in which he found
himself, as he told of the proposed theater
party and of the disappointed girls, who
would think all sorts of mean things about
him for not showing up. Johns n was taken
to South Omaha during the evening, and
perhaps lie will be able to square himself
