Judge Kennedy of the equity court lis
tened to affidavits Wednesday morning In
the Injunction case against members of the
local Typographical union. The hearing
was of a formal nature on the application
of the Typothetae for a temporary Injunc
tion to supplant the restraining order Issued
by Judge Beers, At the close of the hear

advisement, saying he . wished to look up
some authorities cited by the attorneys.
W. J. Connell, attorney for the union,
was absent, being engaged In a case In fed

presented by W. P. Thomas. Mr. Thomas
called the attention of the court to the fact

J. A. C. Kennedy, who represented the
employers, said he had not secured any
proof on this point. He read to the court
twenty-seven affidavits from nonunion
printers and employers In support of the
allegations of the petition. It was alleged
In one of the affidavits that at least four
nonunion workmen had been Assaulted and
that attempts had been made to Intimidate

that the striking printers passed cards to

Which Orrart Wltela a Week

After considerable consideration ester
day af term on the Board of Kducatlon
put the question of a decision on the
site for the new school building over to
another time. A number expressed a
preference for the three lots offered st
Sixteenth and H streets. The board took .
pains to go over the grounds and take
note of the good features of each. It
la the object to get a aite as near the
center of the district ss possible. The
only drswback to the location at Six
teenth and H streets is that the ap
proaches have not been graded. The grad
ing of Sixteenth street has been ordered
as far north as I street, but this lacks
a block of reaching the proposed site.
It Is likely that provision ran be made
for extending this grade by interesting
the residents In thst quarter In the mat
ter. At all events the grade can be es
tablished by the city engineer at this
point, so the board will know how to
plan for the construction of a new build
ing. There are three kits offered here.
The board had another meeting last night
to settle with the contractors for the
additions to the Uncoln and Madison

The regular meeting of the Highland

Arrangements have been made to give

Candidates Barred from Board.
It has been discovered that according to
the new election law the parties who file as
candidates for any office cannot legally act
as registrars for the revision of the polling
lists, neither can they act as clerks nor
Judges of the elections. In connection It
haa been discovered that not less than
seven of the present board of-registration
appointed last fall have filed as candidates
for the approaching election. Therefore
there will be seven vacancies to be filled
by tha mayor before the first day of regis
tration, which is next Saturday, February
10. Testerday the clerk sent out letters
notifying these parties of the effect the
matter of filing had on their right to serve
as members of the board of registration.
All other members of these boards have re
ceived due notice of the day of revision snd

Talk of Hood Election.
There has been absolutely no discussion
in a public wsy on the matter of the special
election which is now only one week dis
tant. It appears that the discussion has
been pretty well threshed out In the strug
gle to have the question csrrled over to the
regular- election. Except for the occasional
comment in the newspapers no one says
anything about the bonds.
Charity Ball Toalgkt.
Tonight will be the occasion of the Char
ity ball. Judging from the advance sale of
tickets thia will be one of the largest at
tended balls in the history of the charity
organisation. The final arrangements were
made nearly a month ago and the society
people and many who do not lay claim to
tha rank, but who make up the firm and
admirable following will ba there to enjoy
the pleasure and add to the funds of the

clerk to advertise for propositions for the

Whst has become of the
Plvonka Injunction case?" It is well
known thst notice of appeal was filed
after the last decision In the esse, but
since that time no one has given the
public any light on the matter. It was
evident that Spltser & Co. were not afraid
of another tleup when they bought the
city hall bends when they were last of
fered for sale. It Is bsrely possible that
they knew- that the appeal would be
dropped at that time. There has been a
statement to this effect within the past
two days. City Attorney Lambert declared
last night that he had i.eard that the
Injunction suit had been dropped, but that
It was- not lo be taken as the final v.-ord.
for there Is yet plenty of time for a
change of mind with regard to the case.
It ia aaid that the restricted area, within
which offera for the site will be con
sidered, leaves out the Plvonka property
entirely. They will not. therefore, be
able to enter the conij etltlon even if they
should enntinus the Injunction.

as the "sand hills." by lease or sale, for
cattle rxising and grailng purposes. Be ii
Resolved. Thst the need of srmie measure
cf this sort Is ura-ent and early action is
most esrnestlv urged upon our representa
tives In congress. Be It further
Resolved. That such a measure, properly
framed, will be In the Interest not alone of .
th- cattle Industry of this state, which Is '
now Imperilled, but will bring relief to a
large number of settlers In the region af-fecu-d.
in which confusion and uncertalnty
now prevail. Be It further
Resolved. That It Is the sense of this or
gnnixatlon that a bill making provision for
this emergency will not only greatly benefit
the Mate, but will yield considerable rev
enue to the government upon lands other
wise unoccupied and unmarketable.

water, who thought it would be more prao- j
Ileal for the government to sell to the cat- ;
tlemen land w hich Is only fit for ararina. !
A motion to send a representative to
Washington to help the cattlemen was nol
received with fsvor. The committee was I
unanimous In Its sympathy with Mr. Cur-
rie and his associates, and resolutions wer?
