Pesplte telegrams from Washington say
ing that the rxstrli t of Columbia Board of
bduca tlon Is In correspondence with Super
intendent of Instruction Pavldsoo of Omaha
with a view to offering him the vacant
superlntendency of the schools of ;Vash
Ingthn, Mr. Davidson snys he has had nd
communication with the achool board at
the national capital.
"I am neither a candidate nor an appli
cant for the plnce," said he.; 'If the..Waah
Ington board has my name .under consid
eration It la without my knowledge. No
correspondence has passed between us, and
I had no Information thai I was even
thought of In thla respeot."
Although It pays S6.0UO a year educators
do not view tlic superlntendency of the
Wnnhington schools as' a particularly at
tractive position owing to a tendency con
tinually to drrfg It into politics. It Is re
called that Superintendent Powell a num
ber of years ago, after bringing the schools
there to a high state of efficiency, lost his
place because lie declined to make a purely
political' appointment. Kta . friends assert
that he died of a broken heart as a result,
being nn educator with small Inclination
toward the political game or appreciation
of Ita methods.
It the .Washington place Is tendered Su
perintendent Davidson It does not follow
that Omaha will be looking for a new su
pertntendent of schools. It will be merely
the third time within a year that a (5,000
position has been offered him ' elsewhere,
and both times he declined, feeling, accord
ing to his friends, that be could not quit
the local schools until be had started fairly
under way the new wage system and train
Ing plana. Besides this he likes Omaha.
It is said that Cleveland and St. Paul
have made efforts to secure Mr. Davidson
to head their schools. The salary of the
Omaha tuperlntendency Is now $4,1500 a year.
WASHINGTON. July 81. (Special Tele
gram.)-rfluperlntendent Davidson of the
Omaha schools has been under considera
tion y the nominating committee of the
board of trustees for the position of super
intendent of schools In this city. His con
sideration, however, has been predeoated
on the proposition that on or two met
who have first consideration would de
cllne. It looks now as If an eastern man
would be selected for the place.

at least seventy-five atrange negroes who

Yesterday afternoon Don C. Ayer, chief
of the Bureau of Animal Industry at South
Omaha, made his first authorized public
statement concerning the new meat Inspec
tion In South Omaha. Regarding numerous
purported statements heretofore, the doctor
said: "I hae been quoted so much that
every time I see my name In print It
makes me swear." Hts statement antici
pates a visit from Secretary Wilson and
A. D. Melvln. chief of the Bureau of Ani
mal Industry at Washington, D. C. He
says all Is practically ready for the visit
and the new Inspection. His statement Is
as follows: -
I have Informed the chief of the Bureau
of Animal Industry at Washington that the
Swift, Omaha and Cudahy Packing com
panies are now ready for Inspection under
the new regulation, and that Armour ft
Co., are still making some changes In dress
ing rooms, closets and so forth, which will
be completed In a few days. Then all the
plants at thla point will be ready for In
spection. We are expecting, consequent
upon our report, that all the planta In busi
ness here will be personally' Inspected by,
Secretary Wilson and Chief A D. Melvln
of Washington before the Inspection under
the new regulations will be established.
The new force will Include a number of
sanitary men and additional night men.
These have not aa yet been assigned. The
doctor thought that by the time the officials
from Washington should arrive Armour &
Co., who have been working night and day,
will have all necessary Improvortients com
pleted. He said he thought, with' the cheer
ful aid of the packers, the plants were In fine
condition, and would be much disappointed
If they did not meet the approval of the
heads of the departments.
Commend I. oral Plants.
By way of comparison of these plants
to those In Chicago and Kansas City end
other, points, eyen to Los Angeles, -cry
favorable assurance came this afternoon
through a casual visit of Manager Hick
man of the Cudahy Packing, company at
Los Angeles. He is taking his summer
vacation and during this recreation has
visited Kansas City, Chicago and other
points. He said: "Judging from what I
have seen "since I left 1.0s Angeles, I Am
satisfied that Omaha has as clean and
satisfactory packing establishments as any
In the Vntted States. I remember of times
and Instances which have come. under my
observations, when some packing houses
permitted things which, were not exactly
right; and it Is a good thing, or will be
in the end.' that the government has in
sisted on the clean up." He spoks with
special favor of the night Inspectors and
Ihe assistance they would be able to give
to the regular watchmen. Mr. Ayer then
showed him a copy of the dally reports
from the night inspectors,, and told of the
success of the Innovation here. The night
men have a peculiar advantage over the
day men In some directions. This 1 es
pecially true of the sanitary conditions
They have a chance to know whether the
plants are cleaned thoroughly and at the
proper times. ;
The packers anticipate no severe crlti
clsm from the heads of the departments
when they shall arrive. The date of their
arrival Is not known and will depend much
on circumstances. .
Eaat sldera Jubilate.
The East Side Improvement club held a
Jubilee meetlag last night In Fitaalminon's
barber shop on Twentlth and' Missouri
avenue. The object of the rejoicing was
the prospect of seeing tha work of paving
begin on thq avenue this morning. The
meeting was called on short" notice, after
a consultation. The mayor has been time
and again to Mr. Murphy and the cause
of the delay has at length been removed.
Mr. Murphy stated yesterday morning that
If he could be assured by the property
owners on the avenue of hearty support,
and that there would be no further at
tempts to delay the work by legal means,
he would have his outfits at work this
morning and rush the contract to a speedy
completion. This the Missouri avenue
men were glad to promise anif about thirty-
five of them met last night., with whom
the mayor was present, artU publlcally
agreed to stand by the work to the best
of their ability. After the meeting Mayor
Hoctor left at onee for Omaha to Inform
Mr. Murphy of the result of the meeting.
Therefore some of the late rising people
may perhaps be wakened by the ciaog
of the scrapers. There is no doubt that It
111 have been a welcome sound.
Who Arc Sewer Bidders f
Trie mystery of yesterday around the pfty
hall was: - "Who are the Denver Building
and construction company? So far no
one has beenr able to anawer the question
In a satisfactory manner. The clerk knows
simply that a man representing himself to.
be Fred Mullen of Denver placed his bid
for the contracts, and It Is bis name which
Is signed to the personal checks which were
offered as an evidence of good faith. The
city engineer knows still tss of the firm.
It was hoped that the firm would put In an
early appearance, for there Is one discrep
ancy already which may be a fatal check
to the validity of tha bid. The contract
calls for a certified check, whereas the
checks offered, segregating $3.0. are ' all
personal checks. It was openly hinted that
Hugh Murphy and ex-County Commissioner '
McDonald were the personnel of the com
pany, but Mayor Hoctor sail last evening
that he had questioned Mr. Murphy espe
cially and that be had denied all connec
tion with the company, stating that his
Denver branch waa under another name.
He declared he had heard of the Denver
company of the name given, but had not
considered It a strong company; but from
actual knowledge waa unable to say that
It waa not a responsible company. Several
weeka ago It waa rumored that a number
of South Omaha men were about to form
a construction company to bid on the new
sewers. In certain quarters it la broadly
hinted that the Denver company Is in
reality a South Omaha syndicate In dis
guise. No one was able to say aa much,
however, nor to name any South Omaha
man who was connected with the enter
prise. It has appeared a trifle strange to
some also that the I'nlon Stock Tarda com
pany, which haa shown such a decided In
terest at the outset, has made no publlo
move alncs the bonds were voted. So far
aa known, they have not shown any Inter
est In the letting of tha contracts. Mayor
Hoctor last night expressed a sincere hope
thst the company would make good, but
said he knew as little about the company
aa any one.

MILWAUKEE,. July. 31.-A special to the
Journal by a staff correspondent from
Raddlsson, Wis., says ttlat after crawling
on his hands and knees for a great dis
tance Duyo Rogich of Milwaukee, wounded
In three places by Clarence Diets, reached
the homestead of Charles Johnson and
was later tarried Into Winter, where he
secured medical attention. Slight hope Is
entertained for his recovery: He had been
terribly exposed when he reached the
Johnson place and his wounds had become
filled with dirt
Rogich told the story of his terrible
experience to the conductor pn a Hay-
"When the fellows who were carrying
me out of the woods- thought they were
pursued by Diets ' and dropped my
stretcher I feared that my last moment
had come," he eald. '.'They told me to
remain where I had been left. After a
while, realising that they were not coming
back, I started to crawl on my hands and
knees. I ;couId not raise myaelf to my
feet. All that night anil part of the next
day I made my waytnrough the woods,

Mrs. C. J. Ziebarth of IH Franklin street
displayed remarkable pluck Tuesday morn

house burplar by holding a 44-callber re
volver over the man. After an exciting
chase and spectacular stand, "Stuttering"
James I.ane Smith, only three days out of
the Lincoln penitentiary, finally was landed
In the city Jail.
While hanging out some germcnts about
10 o'clock Mrs. Ziebarth was apprised by
a neighbor of the entrance of Smith. The
woman started through the house and nt
once noticed her purse hnd been taken
from the Ice box. She saw Smith run
through the front door, which he unlocked.
Then the chase began.
Bert Houghton and the Ziebarth bulldog
started after Smith, with Mrs. Ziebarth
bringing up the rear with the artillery.
At Twenty-eighth and Burdette streets
Houghton grappled with Smith. Smith
Mpughton and bulldog were mixing It at a
lively rate, when Mrs. Ziebarth arrived
with her revolver. Houghton rolled the
colored man down a small embankment
and when the culprit arose he looked Into
the mouth of the woman's revolver.
Don't move or I'll shoot you," said Mrs.
"Then there will be two dead persons,"
Tho woman then brought the weapon
closer to Smith's head and the men lost
his power of speech.

Patrolman Ed Morrison hurried to the
scene and took Smith In charge. Evidently
the colored man had thrown away the
purse and money In hla flight. At the
police station a So bill was found concealed
In the prisoner's mouth. Mrs. Zlebarth'a
money was all silver.
Smith has served three terms at Lincoln
