The F street viaduct over the Union Pa
cific tracks at Twenty-ninth street was
the most Important matter passed upon by
the city council In session last night. The
ordinance ordering the Union Pacific rail
road to build the viaduct was given Its first
reading. It is said that the road has long

should legally ba demanded by the city.
There I perhaps no crossing in the city
which needs the Improvement more. It
Is the only street open to the west south
of Vinton street, Omaha, until L street Is
reached. Travel has been delayed by the
cars weighing there and while engaged In
weighing the train men pay little atten
tion to the vehicle waiting.
' An ordinance waa Introduced opening
Thirty-ninth street across the Burlington
tracks. It Is expected with . this action
that the Burlington wilt at once construct
the short viaduct necessary to span it
right of way.
An ordinance was Introduced providing
an Issue of bonds for ths grading of Six
teenth from H to I.
Tha ordinance declaring the necessity of
paving E street from Twenty-fourth to
Twenty-eighth was Introduced. This will
be followed with the bond ordinance and
the contract. The Tmprovement has been
eagerly sought by the residents all summer.
It Is hoped that the street may be Im
proved this fall.
Bonds were authorised for the grading
of J street from Elghteentn to Nineteenth.
The health Inspector reported one case
of contagion, a case of diphtheria In 'Sep
tember. It was mild. He reported vigorous
effort In cleaning up back yards. He an
nounced that he had Inspected, the dairies
doing business In the city aocordlng to law.
Tha sale of 11,950 worth of Improvement
bonds at public auction In the council
chamber was ordered advertised. They pay
the cost of grading J street.
The plat of Home place, a new addition
south of Jefferson street, between Thirty
third and Thirty-sixth, was approved. This
plat Is being promoted by N. P. Podge &
Co. of Omaha.
The claim of Jacob Levy for damages on
account of grading operations was on the
recommendation of the city attorney al
lowed and warrants ordered.
The police judge reported 167 cases in
police court In September. Of these seventy
six were dismissed, twelve given suspended
sentences, nine sentenced to county jail,
thirty-nine to city jail, twenty-six fined,
and one bound over to the district court.
The fines for the month amounted to IMS.
The building Inspector reported that all
the doors and exits of the public buildings
were properly hung and safe with the ex
ception of tha main door to tha South
Omaha public library. Thl swings Inward
instead of outward. ,
Bids were opened for the grading of J
etreet from Eighteenth to Nineteenth and

REAL THING IN SKYSCRAPERS
Iter-eat Com pa tat loaa ' Add to the
tatar of 'Moant Kvereat, Al
ready Wlthoot a Rival.
It ha been proved by the Geological
Survey of India that Mount Everest Is stilt
higher than 29.002 feet, the result of the
computations of 1S49 and I960, which for
over half, a century have been accepted
aa making Everest the highest known
summit. The mountain la at least 139 feet
higher than those computations made it.
Before mentioning how thl ha been ascer
tained It may be well to answer a query
that has doubtless arisen In many mind
and was recently referred to by an English
writer who said It was ridiculous to give
the height of Mount Everest as 29,002 feet
because the determination of the hajght of
peaks Is liable to errors of different kinds,
and to give the elevation, at exactly 29.002
feet Implies a degree of accuracy In the
value of the height assigned to the moun
tain that has not been attained. He thought
It would be better to say that Mount Ever
est Is about 29,000 feet high.
The fact Is that the value of 29,002 feet
was not obtained from any one station of
observation. Six trigonometrical values of
the height were deduced In 1949 and x 1850
from six station far to the south of the
mountain. The mean of these six value
I 29,002 feet. Owing to the objection of
the Nepalese government, Mount Everest
cannot ba approached by surveyor from
tha ld ef India nearer than eighty mile
from the mountain, and the oDservatlon
above mentioned were therefor carried out
under great difficulties.
But at last It ha been shown con
clusively that Mount Everest Is higher
thaa the well known value given to it- Be
tween 1S81 and 1902 a series of six addi
tional observations from five different sta
tions waa obtained. All but one of these
stations are nearer to the mountain than
those from which the six determinations
of height were made In 1319 and 1850, and
the north aa well a the south side of
Everest haa been Included in these obser
vations. The geological survey of India na lust
corrected these results for probable errors
due to refraction and has found that all
hese later value of the height of the
mountain are from 1S2 to 149 feet higher
than the long accepted 29,002 feet. The
mean of these six values Is 29,141 feet
The survey In the report It has Just is
sued says that the height. 29.141 feet. Is
still probably too small, as It haa yet to be
corrected for the effect of deviations of
gravity. But though It I a mora trust
worthy result than 30,001 feet, the latter
value will be retained for the present In
maps and publications of the survey.
There are other problem of refraction to
be solved and other uncertainties to be
eliminated and it would be a mistaken
policy to Introduce new values at every
step of the investigation which Is yet to
ba made. No change of the figures will be
made In the publication of the survey
until thoroughly satisfactory scientific
computations make It possible to give ,
determination of the height of the moun
tain that may be accepted as final.
The report adds that there Is little prob
ability now of discovering a higher peak
than Mount Everest. Some geographer
have held that peak higher than thi
mountain were standing behind It to the
north, but when Major Ryder crosaed Tibet
along ths Brahmaputra In 1904, he passed
eighty miles ni"lh of Mount Everett and
found no peak approaching It In height.
For more than half a century since the dis
covery of this summit the mountains of
Asia have been continually explored1' but
no second peak of 29,000 feet ha been
found. New York Sun.
SCHOOL SYSTEM ' INDICTED
V. I,. Haller Call Attention to Some
Poluta oa Which Ho Assort
F. L. Haller, general manager of the
Linlnger Implement company put the public
school system on trial at the Y. M. C. A.
last Evening and brought In himself a ver
dict of guilty. There were four counts to his
Indictmont: "Graduates." he said, "cannot
write a plain, legible hand, and they cannot
pell even the small vocabulary required
In business correspondence,, they cannot
add, subtract, multiply and divide correctly,
and they are lacking In methodical appli
cation to detail.
"Business men who have bean paying big
taxes for a long time for the schools are
now almost universally asking why ao
poorly trained a product I sent them.
They are aaklng why we have to take
boys, poor aa they are, and send them to
commercial schools or Y, M. C. A.' to
learn elementary branches?"
Mr. Haller' was the principal address
at the Inaugural night of the educational
work of the year at the association. An
audlenoe of 200 young men faced him, and
with him on the platform were Educational
Director Miller of the association and
eighteen prominent technical, professional
and business men who constitute the fac
ulty of the extensive courses which the
association is offering.
President Gtlmore of the association
first read a short but carefully prepared
paper relating to the advantages of night
school work. He was followed by Dr. J. P.
Lord, who also spoke briefly, as a repre
sentative of the educational committee of
the Y. M. C. A. Several of tha Instructors
were heard and Mr. Miller gave a general
outline of the courses offered.
Mr. Holier, who declared himself a pub
11s school man, from kindergarten to and
through a state university, assertsd him
self a not unkindly crltlo of the public
schools, but said that he thought the
charges he made were Incontrovertible. He
attributed the failure of the schools from
a business man's standpoint to the fact
that they were dealgned to lead up to the
university to which only 2 per cent of all
"It I pitiable In the extreme," he said,
"that mother and father should some
times deny themselves all luxuries and
even the necessities of lire to send their
boys' through high school In the hope that
they will be better prepared for business
He declared, however, that sign were
rife of a general change In thl regard and
that the grade of high school curricula
would soon be modified for the better.

Taking a Nap Under Water.
As showing how much at home m.n
may be today under water. I mv r.i--
an amusing story. Some months ago, while
me great Datlleshlp Dreadnought was at
Malta, one of the seamen divers went down
to clear Its propeller from
that had become entangled; and he failed
to come up. It chanced that the rest of ths
battleship's divers were ashore, and grave
concern was felt on the Ironclad for the
missing worker. Signals by telephone and
lifeline were sent below, without avail.- In
tne launch above, the throb, throh of th.
air pumps's cylinders went on; but the at-
icnuanis tooaea at one another In dismay,
feaerlng some strange tragedy deep down In
tnose neaving green seas.
The worst was feared when anmsi Hit
brushes and other tools came floatlnsr to
the surface; and thereupon the navigating
lieutenant sent ashore an urgent messags
for one of the other divers. The man m.
on board, dressed Immediately, and went
oeiow, only to come up full of Indignation.
"Why. that fellow's been asleep all this
time!" he said, wrathfully. It was true.
i ne man naa just had his lunch, and find
ing the work much leaa serious th
thought, he finished it In a few rvlnutes and
men sat comrortauiy on one of the giant
blades of the Dreadnought' propellor and
went to sleep, with Inquisitive fishes
swarming around him. attracted by the
daszllng searchlight on his breast! The of
ficers were so amused at the occurrence
