Every seat In the auditorium of the
Ancient Order of United Workmen temple
war. filled at an early hour last night to
list in- o the speakers who 'united to make
the meeting- the biggest event of the cltir
campaign. As soon as the seats on the
lower . floor were filled the gallery was
.upened and a large number ot people
flocked; there and many stood at the back
of tha room. A number of Interested
women were present, though, naturally,
the men were In the great majority. The
speakers of tha occasion, aside from the
candidates, were J. U. Von Dusen and L.
O. Gibson. The favorite candidates were
.ctoeered roundly as they appeared. H. C.
.Mufphy. B. L. Howe and W. P. Adklns
were specially singled eut for an unusual
demonstration. ' The speakers of the even
ing brought out tha merits of the present
cam Da Inn with vigor and eloquence. Borne
of the Indisputable facts brought out dur
Ing the evening were as follows: There
has been, a regular reduction In the rate
of taxation -since- the republican party
came Into power. The rate grades down
from 11 mills in 1900, thus: 1901, 9. mills;
1902. .2S; 1903, 49; J904, -84; 1905, 7. In
ltW) the corporations paid 118.017.81 and' In
1P05 $84,047.6V,an Increase ot $66,029.75. The
home . pwners ot South Omaha yaid less
taxes' In K05.than in. any year wince the
1lrst dataiSMmtloned. r f-.'
; There was tn the .treasury April 1, 1900,
only $40,496.11, while -March 8. 1905, the
amount stood $255,5:4.14. Out of the present
year's levy the city has paid for a new
Are hall, $20,000; on a pest house, $1,000;
on voting machines, $1,200; on primary
Veleotlon. $700.
:-, An answer to the challenge of the dem
rcrata as to what was done with the scav
enger funds was niade a point of argument
.Thin, it was explained, has been accruing
Slineo 1904, and the total amount received
was $24,799.61. Here are the itemised dis
bursements: January, 1906, paid old Judg
tnents outstanding against ttu city and
cleared up every outstanding warrant, $,
371.67; May, 1906, paid all the outstanding
sidewalk warrants, which had run against
the city for four years back, $4,310.88; June,
1906. appropriated to 1906 levy $6,761.12. Since
that time $186.89 has been paid out on war
rants which can be produced in evidence at
the treasurer's office. There remains as
cash balance to be appropriated to the 1908
levy $7,170.25. So every dollar is accounted
for by the records. Anyone taking the
trouble ran And the exact items.
' ' Mr. Houseman's Attltade
' George Houseman has made it so plain
what his attitude will be as a member of
tha Board of Education that no one need
have any doubt as to his policy. In speak
ing of his attitude with reference to the
school board, Mr. Houseman said to a rep-
esentative of The Bee: "I want it dis
tlnctly understood that I shall have no part
Interest In any factional or personal
right on the board. My aim will be to help
in every . way to promote the general wel
fare of the schools, regardless of personal
a- political quarrels. I want to sue the
schools grow in size and In strength. I am
proud that we have one of the fluent high
school buildings liv the west, and am proud,
too. that we have a fine corps of teachers
-it may be stated that Mr. Houseman Is a
man of ripe experience and splendid Judy:
ilient, Ho is a scholarly man, liberal in his
views and peaceful In his nature. He has
made a clean campaign and he has aseur
ances from the voters of every class and
Ian that he .will be elected on Tuesday
next,' '..""'
Adklns aa .Campaign
' W. P. Adkiov the republican candidate
fur niayor, expressed himself as well satis
tied with the outlook for a complete rrpub
llcun. victory at the approaching election!
In the phrase of the. .moment he said,
"Wo ve got 'eini skinned." He was more
than satisfied. with the result of yesterduy'a
registration. The returns looked so flatter
ing that he could not see a cloud in the
way of success. Ho said:. "You may say
for me, with regard to lite much talked
of question of the vacating of the stub
ends of streets aud alleys In South Oinuha,
that In the first place these streets went
buck to the owners of the lots which con
nected with theoi. according to the elate
law, and not to the corporations as so post
Mvely stated. Cf course, if a corporation
owned property on one side or the otlie:
of the vacate property they got their half
of the streets so vacated and iu more. In
HK4 the city collected In taxes from tl.i
very property, $HM.65, and Id lao5. owing to
a reduction In the rate of taxation in the
city, be 41. The tax list will show tha
over twenty firms, companies and private
parties have contributed to this tax fund.
Wa ve got two viaducts that never cost
thn city a cent, one on O street and lb
other at West L street. We are going to
have twa more within the next two years.
That will be better than a bonded debt of
$78,000, such as we got on account of the
Q and It street viaducts. By yielding these
ainreta we have Increased the yardage fa
cilities to a large extent. We have made
room for elevators and Industries such as
the Peter's company and others which will
follow soon.- Watjave made it possible to
be accommodated with tao new and sub
stantial depots. With regard to the rentals
on hydrants, let me nail that right here.
There Is always a semi-public interest in
the property of any corporation, and It Is
tmly Just lee to the heaviest taxpayers In
the city to allow them to remain. I am
tKiafldnnt that they cannot legally be moved.
"One of the best arguments for the con
tinuation of the re publics n policy is the
n conditio! of the city's finances. It
means that the city has been economically
governed When Treasurer Howe took his
office. h could not collect his own salary
for tha ftm tix months be was la ottlce, by
reason of the se vere depletion of th-4reas-
uiy. At the present moment there Is $ift,
oriO deposited In the South Omaha banks
u the credit of the city. The rate of taxa-
tlon has been reduced from what It wss
hen he took hie office. It means economy
and common sense In governu.',nt. The
people of South Omaha are not going
forget these things when It comes to vote."

Governor Geaeral of Canada Retarsa
Portrait of Fraaklla taptared
by His Great Grandfather, .
NEW YORK. March 81. Earl Grey, governor-general
of Canada, was the guest ot
honor tonight at the Pilgrims dinner held
In the Waldorf -Astoria. . At the reception
which preceded the dinner many ot the
most prominent and distinguished men of
the city were present.
Earl Orey, accompanied by lady Orey
and - their daughter, arrived in company
with his host, Joseph Choate. Shortly after
$ o'clock a bugle blast brought the formali
ties of the reception to a close and the
guests assembled In the banquet hall, in
the grand ball room. Regrets were received
from Bishop Potter, President Roosevelt,
Major General Corbln, Ambassador White
law Held and others. The toast, "The
President and the King," was drunk stand
ing, while the orchestra played see "The
Star Spangled Banner." and "God Save
the King." Then came a toast to "The
Right Honorable Earl Grey, Governor-
General of Canada."
In Introducing Earl Orey Mr. Choate
It was a remote ancestor of his hi
great grandfather. Major General Sir
Charles Grey, who became the first earl,
that 1 wish to speak of, because his ex-
ferlence in America furnishes us with an
iv:ldent which ought to give satisfaction to
ali American people. Sir Charles was in
the possession of Franklin's home In Phila
delphia at one time during the Revolution
ary war. In the ronfuaion of their de
parture a tine portrait ot Franklin dlaap
peared. Franklin himself was In Paris
forming that conquering alliance with
France. I suppose the British regarded
the picture as a suitable capture, since they
could not get him. How the picture got to
Kngland nobody can tell, but It came into
tiiw first Lord Grey's possession and has
hung for Ki years In the Urey ancestral
hall as a precious heirloom. And now Lord
Grey, In full recognition of the deire for
h irmony and f ricndMhip, has decided to
rcKtore to the t'nlted ritates, as a free
Will ofterlna this portrait, and a month
aito he wrote to President Koosevelt mak
lis; the formal presentation. It is hop-d
tiiut the portrait will reach Philadelphia In
time for tne oeienration next month.
Hie Karl made an. extended response,
dwelling upon the amicable relations be
tween Canada and the United States. Other
toasts were "International Comity," Sec
retary . Root; "The Empire State," Gov
ernor HlKglns, and "The Peace of the
World," General Porter.

The week was characterised by a decided
lull In real estate. After a flurry ot two
or three weeks. It was natural a quietness
should ensue for a few days, say real estate
men who note that business always comes
In "bunches." This term lull can be ap
plied to the situation only so far as big
transactions are concerned. For while big
deals have been few, nothing having been
reported Involving a consideration of as
much as $20,000, yet business In smaller
properties has been brisk. One desler te-
marked Saturday thst he never had so
many trades to close, and most of them
were on properties ranging from $2,0U0 to
$1I00. Requests for houses and lots were
mainly from those who wanted to buy for
An unusual number of inquiries Is noted
from persons out in the state who wish
to come to Omaha to live, and several
sales'' have been made to such people in
the last few days. T,here is a consider
able number, also, of men In the smaller
towns who arr buying Omaha real estate
as an investment. Some ot them come
from the western part of the state to look
at Omaha property.
Alfred C. Kennedy reports the following
recent sales: Double house on southeast
corner of Twenty-fourth and Dodge streets.

$1,700; two vacant lots In Fearon Place to

May 1, which is moving day In nearly
every city In the country, is only a
month off, but Omaha has never come to
give that day the character It has else
where. In Omaha the rental business, ac
cording to local rental agents. Is peculiar
unto itself. The people rent whenever
they can and usually try to get in with
or without leases. When they make
leases they make them for a stipulated
period ot one year or two years, with
out reference to them expiring at any
particular time; as a consequence there Is
no general exodus, although, of course,
the spring and, fall are the favored periods
for house hunting, In Omaha, as In. east
ern cities.
