more than n postage and the necessary

the entire allotted time. Aa another attrac

The most Important Item before the city
council Monday night will be the sale n(
the park bonds, amounting to t40,OUO and
accrued Interest, for twenty-one months.
It U anticipated that the only bidder In
tha field will be Spitxer 4 Co., who already
hfive purchased so many, of the municipal
t-curltles. It Is hinted about the city ball
tlir.t this company will not be overly anx
ious to take the bonds with the twenty-one
month i,2 icui J Lr.ternt to be paid. The
law requires that the purchaser shall bid
at least par with accrued Interest. This
Interest amounts to over t2,0U) at the pres
ent tims. Of course this may not be a
stumbling block to the sale of these bonds,
but there are some who are Inclined to fear
that the council may not Insist on the
accrued interest for this length of time,

To organise an International traveling

the conductors' aasoc'atlon, without Insur

about twenty-five traveling men at the
Paxton hotel Saturday evening. Juat how
thla la to be brought about was not decided,
but it was thought an organisation which
did not carry Insurance and which had for
tta scope the betterment of the -condition
of tha traveling men could be organised.
S. O. Smith waa elected chairman and
J. 8. Griffen secretary. The evening was
spent In discussion of the plans for the
organisation and an adjournment was taken

Be Aaked to Settle.
Th Omaha branch of the Nebraska Hu
mane society is threatened with a political
disturbance which already has grown to
the extent that Captain Francis J. Ellison,
local superintendent, has been discharged
by the trustees. Mr. Ellison, however, re
fuses to consider himself discharged and
Intends to test the matter in the courts
If necessary. He has engaged Attorney C.
O. McDonald and has referred officers of
th human society and other to Mr. Mc
Donald for any further Information on the
subject. Captain Ellison will continue to
perform the dutle of superintendent of the
human society from his office on th fourth
floor of th city hall until some court -orders
htm otherwise. He contends he had
a contract with th society to remain as
superintendent until at leaat May 1, 1907.
Th trouble between Mr. Ellison and the
officers and trustees of the human society
came to a head when the superintendent
sent out proxy blanks intended to be used
at the annual meeting of the aoclety tomor
row afternoon. Mr. Ellison made up a
slate In this manner: President, Dr. Q. U
Miller; vice president. Rev. John Williams;
ecretsry, J. P. Hayden; treasurer, Gould
Diets; attorney, Frank Crawford; trustees,
Father M. J. Dowllng. Rev. Newton Mann,
A. Hospe, Mogy Bernstein, Judge A. Li.
Sutton and George A. Danforth. The hu
mane society trustees asserted Mr. Elllion
exceeded his prerogatives when he made up
a slat and sought proxies, while Mr. El
lison maintained he was doing what any
member of the society might do and was
doing what he thought waa for the best
interests of the society.

Tasterday noon H. 8. Mann presented
Mr. Ellison a resolution purporting to have

Board of Trustee of th society, directing
that Mr. Ellison be dismissed aa superin

property h had belonging to tha aoclety.
Mr. Ell'.ion then and there refused to take

LINCOLN, Jan. f.-To the Editor of The
Bee: In view of the articlrf In The Bee
of December 16, from F. W. Bouska of
Iowa City, I wish to call attention of the
publlo to the fact that steps have been
taken to secure instruction In th Bohemian
language at the University of Nebraska.
The first attempt waa made a year ago,
when the Ciech students at the university
presented to the university senate a petition
signed by students and Csechs residing at
Lincoln, asking that a chair of th Csech
language be established at th university.
The petition was accompanied by a sche
dule, showing the comparison of th lan
guages taught with the number -of th
population using the same. Thla petition
waa taken before the university senate by
Prof. W. G. Hastings, and by him ex
pounded. For financial reasons th attempt
failed, but th plan ha not been given up
and another and more energetic effort la
now under way. The plan now I not to try
for a separate and independent chair of
Csech, but to appeal to the regents of the
university and Chancellor Andrews to se
lect a Csech Instructor In some language
or literary department, who would be given
an hour a day through the week to teach
the Csech tongue to sll desiring It. In this
way It Is hoped to meet the financial side
of the objection and affect tho purpose.
Considerable Interest Is shown in the
matter by the Ciech newspapers and their
support is supplemented by that of a num
ber of Bohemian societies. Th Importance
of the Instruction to the Bohemian is so
clear that It needs no argument. The Bo
hemian who I not well versed In English
is at a distinct disadvantage In his life In
the new world. He cannot converse with
his American-born neighbor, and so he is
left for social and business Intercourse to
his countrymen who are in th same posi
tion. This has given the Bohemians the
name of being backward, when the reverse
is true. The young Bohemians, educated In
America, ar given Instruction In English
and other tongues, but not In Ciecb, and
so they drift away from ths language of
their fathers, and are not of real service
to their fellow. If they could be !nstruc;ed
In Csech and In other languages they would
be able to communicate mor freest with
their people, and so could Impart th knowl
AND "THE BEST."

edge they hav gained from attending ths
schools and universities. In this way they
would assist th Bohemians who have not
been educated in English and give them th
advantage of higher education.
In th University of Nebraska today sre
about thirty-five Czech students, represent
ing a population of about 60,000, all tax
payer and thrifty oltlzens. They now see
that th methods they hav so far pursued'
ar not conducive to their best Interests
or to the attainment of their alms and
Ideals. Th small band of student at th
university are their representatives, seek
ing a way to perpetuate the attainments
of their countrymen and to secure for them
better recognition by their fellow citizens
who do not now understand them. Instruc
tion in the Csech tongue would not be
merely to perpetuate that language, but
would be a means to an end having In view
great benefits to the people of tha state.
W hop th regents of the university will
see this, and provide means for the de-
sirea instruction, jujim l,

Leo aad the Lobby.
OMAHA, Jan. S. To the Editor of
the Bee: Your criticism of tha member
of the Douglas county delegation who
voted against the "lobby whereas and res
olution" Is unfair and unjust, and I know
that I have no need to "get right" on that
proposition. If I voted for the declaration
In the "whereas" "that It was the custom
In the last house for railroad and other
lobbyist to buttonhole and bulldose mem
bers on the floor of the house" I would
be voting for what I know to be untrue.
( I never saw a railroad lobbyist nor any
other lobbyist, on the floor of the hous
while tha last legislature waa In session.
It was strictly prohibited by the rules of
the house. I would consider It art insult
for any lobbyist to attempt to "buttonhole
or bulldose" me on the floor of the hous
and I would be ashamed to admit such a
thing by my vote. The truth is always
better than grandstalid plays built of
falsehood. . MICHAEL LEE.
