Sewers t All Schools.
The members of the Board of Education
are rejoicing at the fact that the proposed
sewer system will be built so as to accom
modate all the school buildings In Mouth
Omaha except one and that Is the Lowell
school. In one or two cases the connection
will be three or four blocks, but It will
gladly be done. Few people realise what
a great task It Is to have the correct sani
tation with no sewer facilities under the
crowded conditions of many of the school.
Four of them are Still using outside closets,
from which many evils, both sanitary and
disciplinary, result. The new sewer also
will accommodate the new site recently
purchased at Sixteenth and It streets.
There has no pew name been adopted for
the school which Is to be erected In the
autumn at this point, and some of the
members of the board suggested that some
of the patrons In that district should be
ble to recommend a suitable term by
which It should be known.
Republican flab Mass Meeting.
The mass meeting of all the republican
clubs held last right at the Commonwealth
hall. Twenty-fifth and N streets, was at
tended by large delegations from all the
clubs organised In the city. There was a
full crowd In the hall during the whole
evening. George Housman was chosen
chairman and C. E. Fay secretary. The
presidents of the various clubs were asked
to speak and all readily responded with
words of encouragement for the success of
the party In South Omaha. After them
many of the candidates of the party and a
number of the councllmc n and others made
brief addresses and kept thefloor rumbling
with the enthusiastic stamping of feet.
The Kosciusko Republican club extended
a formal Invitation to all the other clubs to
meet with It next Friday evening In an
other mass meeting at the Paproskl hall at
Twenty-seventh and J streets. This the
assembly unanimously accepted and a rous
ing meeting Is anticipated.
Carnival of All Nations.
The carnival of nations given by the
Young Men's Christian association last
nigh', was attended by about 2D0 of the
young people of the city. Of these about
one-third was In costumes. There was a
brief program, all musical, consisting of a
piano solo by Miss Beulah Davis, which
waa generously applauded, and a really
flrst-class performance on the violin by
Master Hiram Scovllle, accompanied on
the piano by his young brother. An Im
provised quartet of black face comedians
sang a number of southern songs and did
Its best to liven things up. The crowd did
not get warmed up until rather late In the
evening, and then the two booths came In
for a fair share of business. All together
the evening was a pleasant and a profit
able one to all concerned.

a case heard Tuesday morning In police
Tom and John Donlon of Kill Pinkney
street were charged with disturbing the
peace by flghttyig and assaulting James
Lyons of 8412 Maple street. When the evi
dence brought out that the Donlons had
cut Lyons with a knife the police Judge
sentenced the prisoners thirty days each.
Mrs. Donlon watched the proceedings
from a rear seat and cried pitifully when
her boya were sentenced.
"They are tho best boys In the atate,"
the mother said, between her tears.
Although her son Tom tried to burn her
house dowrt a month ago, when she wss
rescued by neighbors, and notwithstanding
the other boy was going to strike her with
an axe on another occasion, she appeared
willing to forgive them ten thousand times
The boy In the case was Fred Ross, a
witness to the assault. Master Ross was
told to tell his story, so he began at the
beginning of things by telling how he and
two companions got their sleds, what kind
of sleds they were, where they slid down
hill, how long their mothers allowed them
to stay out sliding, the condition of the
sliding, the length of the slide. The

been made to determine which of the four
bidders Is lowest. The results so far se

and they show the Myers-Dillon Drug Co. to
be lowest on the largest number of items.
These are the figures showing the numbev

each Item used last year.- These are the
figures on prescriptions: Kherman A Mc

Beaton Drug company,- 19 cents. Mr. Yates,
who had the contract last year, took It

For extra supplies, not included In the

Myers-Dillon Drug company tbld S per cent
less than the wholesale price. The other
bidders bid 3 and 20 per cent above whole

For furnishing cement and sewer pipe
Sunderland Brothers appear to be the

about 10 per cpnt higher than last year's
contract price but slightly lower than the
bids which were rejected. The Omaha Hay

be lowest on sand, and C. W. Hull & Co.

CUMMINS ASKED FOR PROOF'
Senator Oilliland Resents Statements in
Letter of the GoTernor.
CHALLENGE LIKELY TO BE ACCEPTED
Senate Intends Rate Resolatlen
that Kverybody Concerned Is Kn
dnrsetl and Then It Is Passed
by Decisive Tnte.
I From a S'aff Correspondent.)
1M-:S MOIXKS. Feb. 30. -t Special. )
I Charging that the statement of Governor
Cummins In his formal announcement of
his candidacy for a third term In this
morning's palters that the railroads are
"exerting every Influence that money and
organisation can create to defeat the prl
nutrv bill" l a direct reflection on the
members of the legislature. Senator Shirley
O'llllanU of MIMk county today Introduced a
concurrent resolution calling on the gov
ernor to furnish the legislature specific
facts bearing on the assertions. The reso
lution went over till tomorrow under the
rules of the senate. After the resolution
was Introduced Senators Msytag, Garat,
irf-wls. Smith of Mitchell and Hughes, five
of the strongest Cuminlns men in the
senute, were seen and each In a general
way endorsed the resolution and talked
favorably to passing it. This attitude as
sumed by the Cummins people, when It was
supposed by Gllliland that they would op
pc se It, hns complicated the situation. The
Cummins people talk of amending the reso
lution so as to hsve testimony taken under
oath before a committee of the house nr-.d
senate. The Cummins people declare they
will "call the bluff'' of the standpatters.
Two of them asserted today to The Bee
r-'pre'entntl-e that If the governor didn't
have sufficient facts to present they had
enough themselves to bear out every as
sertion of the governor in his statement.
The Glllllnnd resolution Is as follows:
Whereas, Governor Cummins In the ad
dress to the "republicans of Iowa." issued
in this morning's papers, makes the alarm
ing statement that the railroad corpora
tions are "exerting every ounce of strength
which money snd organization can create
to defeat the primary election bill": that
"they are hunting It to Its death with a
persistency and vlndlctlveneas I have never
seen surpassed": that "these masters of
tntrlgue who are now endeavoring, to
thwart the will of an overwhelming pro
portion of the voters of Iowa and (for this
purpose) are spending the winter In Des
Whereas.. The gravity of this charge -Is
such as that, If believed by the people, It
will seriously reflect on all legislators op
posed to a state-wide plurality primary, no
matter how conscientious their opposition
may be, and will lead the people to believe
that all such are being Influenced In their
action by the "exertion of every ounce of
strength which money . and organisation
can create"; now therefore be It
Resolved, by the senate, the house con
curring. Tliat In fairness to the members
of the legislature, and that only those (If
thei'M be any) who are really culpable may
be pointed out, the governor lx? asked to
communicate in writing to the legislature
such specific facts (as distinguished from
mere assertion) as to
1. How money Is being used by the rail
roads to defeat the primary bill.
2. What legislators. If any, have been the
recipients of this money.
3. Who are the "masters of intrigue thst
are spending the winter In Des Moines"
and where are they located.
Everybody la Endorsed.
After continuing for an hour the debate
of yesterday on the Weeks resolution to
memorialize congress In favor of adequate
rate legislation, the senate this morning
killed both the Jamleson amendment to give
credit In the matter to Dolllver and Hep
burn and the Smith of Mitchell amend
ment endorsing only the Ideas of Roosu-
velt on the question and then passed A
substitute by Courtrlghf thanking (lie Iowa
delegation In Washington for Its efforts
and assuring them of the appreciation of
the Iowa people. of their efforts to secure
"in effective measure, giving to the Inter
state Commerce commission power to fix.
establish and enforce reasonable Interstate
freight rates and charges, as demanded by
the president." - v
The debate was a1 rapid fire one from the
opening to Its close. The question wus
brought up by Senator Jamleson, who read
a telegram from Hepburn received this
morning stating that his bill had the en
dorsement of President Roosevelt. Sena
tor Jamleson produced' the bill Itself and
made a strong effort to defend Hepburn
and secure the credit of the legislation to
him. Saunders of Pottawattamie took the
floor long enough to say that ha waa op
posed to endorsing any particular bill
which might be changed for better or worse
before the senate resolution was passed
and printed. He read from a dispatch In
a morning paper that the president la con
ferring with advisors as to making changes
In the Hepburn bill. Crosslet ' tried to
amend by endorsing the "recommendations
of President Roosevelt as set for'h In the
bill commonly known as the Dollfver-Hep-burn
bill." There were claims that there
waa no such bill as the "Dolllver-Hepburn
bill," and then Senator Lyons, a demo
crat. got the floor. He aald there would
be time at the republican convention this
fall to discuss party matters; that he wus
opposed to taking valuable time of the
senate longer and moved the previous ques
tion. Roll calls were had on each vote,
which were all largely factional till the
Courtrlght substitute was reached. The
Crosslet amendment waa defeated, 21 to
the Jamleson amendment giving credit
to the president only, defeated, 22 to 24;
the Jamleson amendment giving credit
only to Dolllver and Hepburn, defeated
17 to 28, and the Courtrlght substitute
passed, 31 to 14.
