AFFAIRS- AT SOUTH OMAHA
Board of Fire and Folic Commimionen
Hear Protest on Licenses.
FINAL DECISION - IN CASES GOES OVER
With Oae ' Member Absent Busri) Is
a Tie 'on Haatalalas; the Protest
of The Bee Cones I'p
The Board (if. Fire and Police Commis
sioners again took up the matter of pro
tests baaed on the publication of the no
tices In the legal paper. The cage bf.The
Bee was conducted by Attorneys Cohnell
and Thomas. The World-Herald had no
lawyer. The statements of The Bee in the
matter of circulation were not allowed as
evidence for the reason The Bee did not
bring the books Into court; but on except
ing to the ruling of the board Mr. Connell
managed to get the circulation firmly be
fore the people of South Omaha.- By this
It was shown that the circulation of The
Bee In Douglas county Is 15,171 This Is
the average circulation for the last six
months. Similarly It was shown that the
circulation of the World-Herald was 5.500
and not to exceed 5.750. The statement of
the World-Herald has been that the circu
lation Is above 9.0HO. Even taking this as
true, which The Bee denies, they are not
entitled to publication by t,0CO subscribers.
The- cases of Alexander Grant, Nels
Lundgren and Emil Hansen were tried,
both as to the question of good faith and
as to the point of largest circulation.
Judgment in the cases were deferred un
til Monday night, April 30. After the trial
of Alexander Grant, T. J. Nolan made a
motion that the protest of The Bee be not
sustained for the reason that The Bee had
not technically proved by the best evidence
the exact number of Its circulation. This
motion was lost for want of a second. It
was then moved by A. L. Berqulst and
seconded by Mr. Van Sant that the pro
test of The Bee be sustained. A vote on
the question resulted In a tie, A. A. Nixon
being absent. Nolan and Masson Voted in
the negative. It was then moved to defer
Judgment until Monday night. A number
of other cases were taken tip by the board.
John Franek was protested by a citizen in
the vicinity of Brown park on the ground
that he had kept a disorderly house and
a dance hall In Connection. Chief Ttriggs
testified' that so . far as he knew Franek
had conducted his place In an orderly
manner. Judgment on the case was de
ferred until tonight.
J . Cosntry Club Meeting;.
At the general meeting of the South
Omaha Country club held In the library hall
last night, the members enjoyed a most en
thusiastic session. The excellent reports of
late from the board of directors had the ef
feot of bringing out more than fifty of the
present membership of lflt!. Had the weather
been good it Is likely that the total attend
nee would have reached nearly 1(K). The
board of directors made Its first official re
port to the general assembly and this em
braced all the business of the club up to
the present date. Including all the plans
for the future which are In process of ex
ecution. Many questions were asked by tho
members as to the details of the business so
far conducted. On the whole the member
ship expressed Itself as well satisfied with
the progress. The directors pressed the ne
cessity of Increasing ,the membership, and
three hustling committees were appointed to
iet out and bring up the lists. It Is hoped
to increase tho number to 2tO by the time of
the: formal opening of the 'clubhouse, which
is elated for May 28. . The club will meet
again two weeks from last, night to receive
the reports of these committees, and at
that meeting the board of directors will
present another report also.
Preparing; Iaternrbaa Ordlnanee. .
The city attorney Is preparing an ordi
nance to allow, the Interurban Railway-
company to pass along, across and over the
streets of the city of South Omaha on a
peclflc route. The line is to enter the city
at Forty-fourth and 8 streets tnd proceed
In a northeasternly direction to block (.
Llpton Place.' It will cross L street at
Fortieth. Thence It will continue In the
same general direction, reaching the north
eastern limit of Its right-of-way In the city
at Thirty-sixth and A streets. It would ap
pear from this that the work of construc
tion was about to be undertaken by the
road. There Is little doubt that the council
will grant the right-of-way without oppo
sition. As to the right-of-way over private
property, It Is Understood, through the ef
forts of. II. M. Christie and others, It has
been for the greater part secured.

The presence hi the city of one of the
Junior Si-hwartsschilds of the firm of
Bchwartszchlld & Sulzberger was the oc
casion of considerable speculation on the
part of the men of the Live 6tock ex
change. Many of the commission men de
clared they would rather see this nrm
open a good plant Irt South Omaha 'than
any other firm In Chicago at the present
time. Many wers not inclined to attach
great Importance to the. presence of this
member of the firm. They considered It
one of the frequent visits common to all
Chicago houses. It Is known positively,
however, that Peter Her has offered the
land of tha SouthOmaha Land company to
the company and that Sohwartsschlld at
Sulzberger have made a bid on the same.
No options have been secured, however,
hut there Is a prospect there may be.' The
position of the Bouth Omaha Land com
pany Is removed a considerable distance
from the stock yards and to that extent
Is Inconvenient for packing purposes.
Old Depot Removed.
The Union Paclflo management ordered
the removal of the old passenger depot
at the foot of N street yesterday morning.
This removal was hastened by the fact
that the depot took fire a few days ago
and burned nearly all of the roof away.
The freight office was removed to the new
freight depot at O street and Railroad
avenue. This has been ready for' two
weeks or more and had been In use for ail
except the office force. The telegraph offlce
Got Rid of Catarrh
The chief cause of Catarrh is the suppres
sion and perversion of the normal secretions
of the mucus membranes. Tha chief causa
of this perversion are uric acid poisons in
the blood, which clog the circulation la the
I i F t a I, the circulation clogged the mem-
V V 1 1 1 1 branes become congested, and
the secretions themselves, Instead of keeping
the membranes bathed . with a soothing
moist, antiseptic fluid, become thick and
tough, clog ths respiratory tract, and seri
ously disturb tha whole system. Local in
halations, sprays and washes give some re
lie, but as they do not remove the causa,
their effect is only temporary.
EJim.l.nA clears the uric acid
llin I nO from the blood and
thus restores the natural secretions of the
mucous membranes. This relieves the con
gestion, quiets the irritation, and supplies a
normal antiseptic fluid which destroy
germs and allows nature to work a substan
