"I rail upon Chairman fcvaiis of the cum

"Vour street c;ir faro ordinance will have
to br amrnded In about 157 particulars br

Mr. Kvun. "There plenty of time."
The t linr- la now,''. mild Mr. Hoy. "I am
prepared to dfnid that ordinance and I
want artlon on lt. If I mn't not It on that
ordlnan'-e, I will introduce new ordinances
on etery sinI separate point."
"Co ahead and do 11." quoth Mr. Evans;
bo ahead, It's all right with me."
"And If you don't report on that ordi
nance next week I'll put In another Just
like It," ppolte the man from the Pccond.
More the Merrier.
"Mure," remarked Mr. ijvans. "the more
the merrier. I'm Investigating thla question
and want time to mako a report."
At thla point Chairman Schroeder cut Into
the eonversation, which waa growlns;
loud-r. with Cnunrllmen Zlinman and Iy
lmll involved. "Any reports from other
commit teen?" asked the chairman. "Any
other persona wish to address the council?
If not the meeting la adjourned."
"Wall a minute," exclaimed Hoyc and
X.linnian together. "We are not through
with thla- y;t.'M " ;
'Tight It out, acnojig yourselves," replied
Mr. floliroeder. "I have other business to
attend to. Ooodbve and have a nice tlm"
In two minutes the room waa deserted.
The performance followed an earnest but
unsuccessful effort upon the part of Presi
dent Zlmman and City Attorney Ureen to
induce Chairman Huntington of the finance
committee, to report on the ordinance cre
ating the office of second assistant city at
torney at tl.Snt a year. Councilman Hove,
made an appeal also. It was stated the at
torney's office waa overorowdod with work
and the third lawyer, who will also assume
the duties of claim agent, an office vacant
since the first of the year, la urgently
Huntington la PasalTe.
Mr. tHunlington smoked his cigar and
suid nothing. He remarked there was noth
ing personnl In his desire to hold a repot t
on the document a while longer, but fur
ther sold nothing "on the subject." He
mas begged, lirgd and beseeched to- re
consider, but to nu avail. A motion to
Instruct him to return a ravoraole report
was lost, Comstock, Back and I'vlml! vot
ing niiuhiHt it. J'rcsidcut Ziinmim repudi
ated tno report that he- wished to dlctule
Hit appointment. '
By what wan said to bo a compromise
arning' inenl, with the union printers ob
jecting, action waa taken on the printing
bids. ,The committee' decided to mako the
awards to the "low" bidders and not to
reject, thin -meaning that the Klopp &
Ilart'.ctt company will get practically all
tlio. work nnvl.the Omaha Printing com
pany A little. -.The concession mode to the
union meri Is to readvertlse for the litho
graphing bids and to chang the specifica
tions so ps to admit various modes of en
graving and etching.
. The point waa made that the proposed
letting of bids for matter In bulk to last
the yean Mid specifications to suit would
bo awkward if the administration and the
roster jf ' appointive ;and elective officers
at tho olty hall got witched off the track
at the" May election.
Contract tar Coal.
It was decided to give thu contract lor
2.1.00 tons of steam coal to the Central Coal,
Coke 'and IJme company at $2.'j6 a ton.
Thla price Is 1 cent higher than another
offered, but Superintendent Hugh Insisted
the Central company would furnish tlio
best fuel and tlio kind he wanted. The aa
alstuni city attorney said It would be right
to consider quality us well as price in de
lermii.liig tlu successful hldder.
For ;.uni t ,nx of nut coal the contract
was given to C. 11. Havens at 13.36 a ton;
for fifty tons of screened lump In one
fourtlf 4id ine-hn)f e ta lots, to -Victor
White- at $4.23, and ' for- twenty-five tons
Pennsylvania anthracite, to C. W. Hull &
Co. at Dlp,; a jton, , , .
Assistant 'City Attorney Herdman said
the bid of 11. J. Peufold for drugs, chemi
cal and laboratory, supplies wpuld have
to he ; rejected becauao" it otme under the
name of the Klopp & Ilartlett company,
tie said bidder for plicae goods had to bo
registered pharmacists or have a person of
this kind employed. The remaining bid
ders are Myers A Dillon and Sherman A
McCminell. Kaeh Is low on many articles.
It wuji decided to refer the entire matter

Morton Will lleadjnat Affair
of the Kqoltable.
l. Ogdcn Mills, financier, of New York,
father-in-law of Ambassador Whitclaw
Held and a heavy stockholder In many of
tho western railroads, was In Umuha Mon
day enroute to California In his private
car. Mayflower, accompanied by his son,
"This purchase of tho Illinois Central by
tho t'nlon Pncillc has been talked of for
some time In New York," said Mr. Mills,
"but although I am a stockholder In both
roads, 1 do not know much ulmut It. My
on uiid I are Simply going to California
to spend the winter In thu land of sunshine
and flowers, and my Kin Francisco busi
ness manager, Mr. Taylor, Is accompanying
us on the trip.
"Matters connected with the Kuuitablu
tire ull quieting down, and I think under
Judicious management will soon nil tw ad
justed. Mr. Morton has tho confidence of
the, people, as well as tho financiers, and
will be able to adjust ull dilnVulties."
Mr. Mills' name, like that of other promi
nent victims or Intended prey, waa fre
qtlently mentioned In connection with the
recent Town Topics and Fads and Fancies
Investigations, and when asked In regard
to that affair Mr. Mills simply said he paid
no attention to It whatever.
Mr. Mills Is quite a philanthropist and
recently erected an enormous hotel In New
York as a home for worklngmen. He wns
usked If he did not think ho could build
such a hotel In Omaha, but he did not
seem inclined to consider the proposition.
Ho spent the day In looking over the city
and took several trolley rides, leaving on
the afternoon train on the I'nion Pacific.
Home years ago Mr. Mills, when a resi
dent of California, bought at auction sale
in New York for $75,000 an Italian marble
statue of Columbus kneeling before gueen
Isabella, presenting his plan for discovering
tho new world, and gave tho masterpiece
to the state of California. Those who have
visited tho California capital at Sacramento
have been Impressed with this magnificent
life-sized statue facing them as they en
tered lit one of tho main doors. It waa
carved from a single piece of marble. It
shows the queen of . Spain seated and Co
lumbus with the globe In one hand kneel
ing before her, describing his plan.

tinguished violinist, and the American
prima donna Hopranii. Sibyl Sammia, ussiHted
by C. F.. Clarke, baritone, and Alex Mac
Fadyen, piuuist, will appear. This society
Is new, but has already had un auspicious
lieginnlng. Its prime purpose, iiiHteud of
being pecuniary advantage to its members,
la the promotion of interest In the various
departments of life most conducive to iiihii
taf culture. As a matter of tact, certain
entertainments are said to entail balances
on the wrong side of the ledger Instead of
producing prollla. Hut Hr. Herring ami his
people, while not seeking to cnnllne the
work or benefit tf the society to the mem
bers of their church by any means, feel
the results amply Justify the expense In
curred. The society Is trying to reach
people who may be Interested in aelf-culture
and may not bo otherwise reached, mid at
the same time afford entertainment and
enjoyment for all.

competitive rates generally in other parts
of the country.
As to whether tho facts herein before

Jim O llonrltr Itns Gone Thlrt y-Nlne
Fifty years on the diamond. That is the
ambition of James H. O'Rourke. the great
old ball player who has been In the busi
ness for thirty-nine years, consecutively,
never having missed a season. He has by
long odds passed the record of any other
"Half a century nf active ball plHying."
O'Rourke recently snid, "wouldn't that be
great? And I think I can do It. I feel
good as ever I did nnd have no Idea of
quitting the game I love so well. 1 think
any man whose health Is good and who
takes care nf himself nnd an Interest in
the game can stay as long as I have."
Jim O'Rourke has played on eight cham
pionship teoirs. lie helped Boston win the
pennant In 1873, 1S74, 1S75, 1877, 1878; Provi
dence in 187! and the New York Giants in
18S8 and 1SS9.
Always n. heavy hitter, O'Rourke never
failed to attract undue attention of tho
fans. He used to be an outfielder left
but since 1893 has been catching. He Is
now captain, nanager and catcher of tho
Bridgeport team of the Connecticut league.
His son, James H., jr., plays third base
for the same team, having formerly been
a member of the crack Yale college team
that beat the New York (Hants when his
father was one of them. The elder
O'Rourke urged his son not to become a
professional In II player. but In vain.
Father and son on tho same team make
an Interesting feature.
James H. O'Rourke was born In Bridge
port, August 24. ISM. and always has made
that his home. He is one of the most
prominent citizens of that city now and
wealthy. Besides being the longest play
ing ball player, he Is said to have amassed
more money from It than any other. At
tho age of 62 old Jim Is still active on
the bases and can put In one of the old
long drives frequently which made him
famous long years, ago.

The city council met aa a monthly board
nf equalization Monday morning to con
sider plans of assessment for special Im
provements amounting to $195,000, represent
ing a greater sum of expenditures than any
locr.l special board of equalization has had

Comstock was elected president.
The filing of two protests against the
plan for raising money to pay for the en
largement of Be mis pttrk indicates a deter
mined fight by property owners to resist
levying the tax. The petitions are signed
by about lOu property owners who object
because no special benefits are derived bv
them and they believe the whole city should
bear the burden of the Improvement. It
was through the efforts of a number of
Bemls park residents that the lots ut Thirty-third

Peculiarly Illustrative nf the ways and
methods by which women are outgrowing
their conservatism through the medium of
the woman's club, the members of the sn-ial
science department of the local club were
Monday iiftcrnnon treated to a lllieral pre
sentation of the object and value of labor
unions through s program announced as
explanatory of the white label of Ihe Na
tional Consumer's league. The origin nnd
object of the Consumer's League were pre
sented by Mrs. Clara Burbnuk In a paper.
In which she further pointed out the re
sponsibility of the club woman In creating
the demand for the goods bearing the label
which l a guarantee that they havebcen
manufactured unjr sanitary and whole
some conditions, for a fair wage nnd that
no person under 16 years of age haa worked
From lis jmiail beginning in ISM the
league has grown to Include branches In j
twenty states, and the club women con
stitute a substantial proportion of Its
nteniberthlo. At nreent the white lals-1
Is used most on women's wear, particularly '
white underwear, and women are urged to I
Insist on buying goods so marked as I h"
most pruclli til and surest way of eventually !
abolishing child labor and overcoming
other manufacturing evils against which
they are striving.
On Invitation of the department Mr. Will
O. Maupln of the "Wage Worker" spoke
of the labels of the various trades unions,
what they stand for and why it Is to the
Interest of women especially to lend their
support to extending the demand for union
labl goods. "Any Industrial aystem that
necetsltatea women tailoring outside the
home is wrong In principle and vicious In
theory," he said. "The home Is the wo
man's rightful place, nnd anything that
takes her from It and deprlvea It of her
Influence Is a menace to that home." Am!
then he told the women that the union
label Is the guarantee of manufacturing
conditions that will correct many of tin
present wrong conditions and make It pos
sible for women and children to resume
their proper and natural places. Ho found
no fault with the Consumer's liengue label
except that It, does not guarantee enough
and asked the co-operation of the women
In pushing the union label by asking for
goods bearing It. He condemned the "bar
gain sale" and the dainty finery in wo
men's wear that Is bought by heedless
women totally Ignorant of the tears and
blood and sweat that are sewed Into them
by their despairing sisters In eastern sweat
shops. He described the sweat shops of
the large cltleis he had personally visited,
where practically ever- kind of wearing
apparel Is made amid conditions as dan
gerous to the eventual purchaser us they
are hard for the unfortunate lalxirers. He
told the story, now familiar to club women,
of the wearing apparel being made In the
tlark rooms of the New York tenements
where all manner of disease, contagious
and otherwise, existed and actually worked
on by men and women far gone with con
sumption. He concluded by assuring the
women that If the trades unions can have
the co-operation of the club women of the
country for a few years the battle against
the sweatshop, child labor and the other
evils will be won. Mr. Maupln illustrated
his argument with two pairs of overalls,
one made by union labor at 62 cents a
dozen and one made by non-union labor
at 42 cents a dozen.
Several other men present, representatives
nf various unions, were Invited to speak
and each added something to the argu
ment that the greatest possibilities of
solving this problem through the demand
for labeled goods lies with the women,
who do so much of the buying. Besides
representatives of the labor unions, mem
bers of the Women's Auxiliary to Ty po
graphical t'nlon No. 190 were guests of the
department. While all of the merchants of
the city have been requested to send the
heads of their women's white goods de
partments to the meeting that they might
know more of the work of the League,
only two stores were represented.
