Delisting that tne county commissioners

on the office of the district cl rk. County
I rommiulontr P J. Trainor has clen out
A statement replying to Judge Esti ll , who
made the cliaige that the larger sum had
been expended. Mr. Trainor declared:
"Responding to the remarks which Judge
Estelle made from the bench, I wish to
state that 1 have alwaya been In aympathy
with and supported the Juvenile court and
the Detention home, which the coun.y re
cently constructed with a capacity of fifty
children. Because the home was filled
shortly after it was occupied the commis
sioners called the superintendent of the
Detention home and the Juvenile court
Judge Into conference to see if they could
not find a way to' provide homes for at
least a part of the children, so we cuuld
make room for other delinquent children,
or cut the expense which the county and
taxpayers would have to pay.
Tor the benefit of the public I wish to
state that the county has Inve-ted In the
Detention home grounds, buildings and im
provements in the last two years the sum
of S4C.7J7, and the cost of maintaining each
inmate during the year 1908 was $19 per
month. If the new Detention home Is filled
to Its capacity during the coming year It
will require from $10,000 to $11,000, not count
ing the Improvements and repairs which
will necessarily have to be made.
"In regard to the statement of Judge
Estelle that the commissioners have spent
$25,000 in fixing up the office of the clerk
of the district court, I wish to state the
books show we actually spent during ths
year 1308 and 1909 for furniture, fixtures
and repairs the sum of $2,416.90. More tran
half of this was for filing cates and other
fixtures which will be used In the new court
house. So the commissioners did not ex
pend to exceed one-tenth of the amount
which the honorable Judge said they did in
fixing up the office of the clerk of the
diet i let court.
"Mr. Plckard waa not a commissioner
during 190 and therefore did not help to
expend '$25,000' to put in proper shape for
the public use the office of the d strict

j The special session of the committee of
the whole council Wednesday afternoon re
sulted in a" compromise of the difficult
problem of redisricting the city cf Pouth
Omaha to make seven wards. In this mat
; ter two objects were sought In the main
I The first w as to make the wards as nearly
' equal In size as possible and the second
Vi make them equal In population.
It Is likely that the First ward will in
clude all the territory north of N street
suit east of the alley between Twenty-second
and Twenty-third streets. The Pec-
.. 1 .. . . 1 ..-,11 ... V.I.. Innl.Ma all t Vl

territory south of N street and east of n
Twenty-first street. The Third ward com
prises all the territory south of U street
and west of Twenty-first. The Fourth
ward Is bounded on the east by Twenty
first, on the north by L, on the west by
the railroad tracks and on the south by
U street. The Fifth ward comprises all
to territory north of L strtet and west of
Twenty-seventh. The Plxth ward Is to
consist of all territory north of L street
and between the boundaries of the First
and the Fith wards. The Seventh ward
contains the packing district west of the
railroad tracks lying between L street and
i'opnlatton fiot Yet Kaonn.
It remains for the council committee to
examine the sources of Information to see
whether any greet discrepancy In popula
:ion is found in the new territory. The
snly means of estimating at present Is
the record of the tax commissioner and the
school census. Between the two a fa r
estimate should be essy. In the Fourth
and Seventh wards will be found most ot
ihe floating population and It Is in these
wards that the greatest difficulty in esti
mating the districts will arise. Care was
taken by the council not to throw any
councilman out of his ward and Into a
ward where two of the present councilman
would be. This may be taken as an Indi
cation that all the present councilmen
propose to become candidates for re-election.
The only case In the above plan
where a councilman was put out of his
v.aid was that of John Hasburgh, mem
ber from the Fourth ward. He will be
shifted to the Seventh ward by the new
arrangement. It is thought however that
the change will be greatly to his advan
tage, as he is a resident of the west side
and the new ward contains no terr tory east
of the railroad tracks. In times past this
artificial division of the city has worked
a division of political Interest also.
The ccuncil committee will probably make
Its report on the new wards at the next
meeting and then It will be the duty of
the city attorney to draft an ordinance
establishing the new boundaries. The
necessary steps will occupy the rest of
the year in all probability.
Tabercallne Testa In Dalrlea.
For several days the deputy state veter
inarian has been In South Omaha making
tubercullne tests of dairy cows. The city
hus about thirteen dairymen whose herds
are kept in and about the limits of the
city. The South Omaha city council re
cently passed an ordinance requiring all
dairymen to aubmit to a test. One or two
of the dairymen whose cows were exam
ined came out fortunately; but one dairy
man of the city hud every animal of his
herd condemned. This will be a serious
blow to a man of small means and wiU
probably mean that his business will close
down. All the cows which respond to the
tubercullne test will be sent to the pack
ing house for immediate slaughter under
the conditions of government Inspection.

Cleveland. That distinguished democrat. In
his first administration, succeeded in firmly
establishing the Independence of the execu
tive. In his second administration he did
much to destroy the Independence of the
legislative brunch of the government by
forcing congress to take art'on against
Its will, albeit for the sake of what Mr.
Cleveland deemed to be the best Interests
of the nation. These thlnps were not
accomplished without a struggle, and the
name of Gro"er Oveland goes down In
history as the victor In two distinct con
tests with congress.

remove men from office for political

but he was very, very slow In the work
of removing republican officeholders and
replacing them with democratic "patriots."

Senator Hoar and other republican lead
ers attacked the president with fury, de
claring that he was the first to interfere
with the plain rights of either house of
congress, and comparing htm to King
Charles I. But It developed that Duskln's
term had expired by limitation in Decem
ber and there was nothing to fight about.
The senate went on talking, and the re
publicans had a great deal of fun quoting
from Cleveland's speeches on civil service
reform and contrasting them with 643 sus
pensions from office during the first sum
mer of his administration. But the presi
dent had won the fight by his boldness.
The senate has not since called into ques
tion the right of the president to suspend
or remove federal appointees from office.
In the next session of the same congress
what remained of the tenure of office act
was formally and completely repealed.
In 1833 Mr. Cleveland came to the White
House for a second term, the nly presi
dent to return to office after a season In
retirement. He found a large democratic
majority In the house and the senate was
also under democratic control. The country
was In sore distress, there was a great fi
nancial panic, banks were breaking, fac
tories were closed, men were starving, and
the whole people cried aloud for relief.
Everybcdy agreed that the financial sys

passed the senate by a vote of 4S to 32.
The president was supported by twenty
three republicans and twenty democrats,
and he was opposed by nineteen demo
crats, ten republicans and three populists.
Party lines were broken into smithereens.
When the senate bill got back to the
house for concurrence In some alight
amendments, an attempt at a filibuster
was made. Said a contemporary reporter:
"Chevalier Bryan 1 of Nebraska stood like
Horatius at the bridge, with hla quiver
full of dilatory motions." But the filibus
ter was choked by Speaker Crisp, and on
the final vote seventy-six democrats and
five republicans ' resisted the demands of
the president that the purchasing clause of
the Sherman act be repealed uncondition
ally. It was a great triumph for Mr.
Cleveland, and It led to the settlement of
the vexing problem of the coinage ques
tion. Mr. Cleveland had established the
power of the presidency In legislation.
But now that the Sixty-first congress
is with us. perhaps one of the most inter
esting recollections of the extra session of
1S93 Is that one of the twenty-three "In
surgent" republicans who voted against
the repeal, and one of the five republicans
who supported Mr. Bryan's futile filibus
ter, was that fearless champion of free
silver. Joseph O. Cannon, a representative
