V7HZRE TO CUT IS PROBLEM Number of Kerns Cannot He Hedoced nil several Kami Are Over drawn -I. aat of I. not Year's Appropriation. City officials ore now figuring on the appropriations for the mnlntenanre of the Vfrl municipal department during the new fiss year, which commences April 1. The .apportioning of the anticipated revenue of the rlty for the ensuing year 's a tsk thnt devolves on the present rlty rounc'.l and not or the new rouncll trif n, who will Ve elected on March 28. In dentions are that the appropriation for the new year will have to he cut. a the anticipated revenue during the next fiscal will probably he considerably less than during the year Just coming to a close. A larfie portion of the clty'a revenue Is derived from uncertain and unstable sources, such as saloon licenses, police court fines, forfeitures, etc. This portion of tho revenue will. It Is confidently ex pected, he conslderahly smaller than dur Ing tho fiscal year now closing. A year apo the anticipated revenue was figured at $S7.00, and the appropriations for tho several departments were made on . this basis. At first It waa figured at sr,.nO0, but City Solicitor Kimball gave It oa his opinion that $2,000. which had been paid out In connection with the proposed municipal water works plant, could be transferred from the water works sinking 'j ill to the general fund, so the council iic Ided to base th ' appropriations on an estimated revenue of $7.0n0. Hevrnue Waa Overestimated. Unless there would 1ms a material Increase In tiio at.se.ved valuation of the city, which Is hardly expected, the revenue for the next twelve months cannot. It Is said, be estimated much over $M).000. The shortage will occur In the amount derived from sa loon licenses nnd from what la known as the "police fund." The appropriations for the year now closing were as follows: Salaries of executive department $11,020 Police and marshal's department 2 1. IV) Klre department 28.W0 Fire, and police telegraph 2.OH0 Engineer's department 5.000 Streets and alleys 10,000 Printing and supplies 1,200 ity hall 1.500 Klectlons 2,3T rlty pound AM) Health department 1.800 Total IK.220 The salaries of the executive department follow: Mayor - $ t.JOO Auditor 1 l.aoo Treasurer 1.200 Sollollor 1.600 Clerk 1,200 Deputy clerk 1.000 Right council men 2.000 Judge superior -court 1,000 Stenographer .for city offices 720 Total $11,020 hortaaret In Several Funds. Where to make a cut la what Is puzzling the city officials. No appropriation will be needed this oomlng year for elections unless the advocates of the commission form of government got busy ajid secure the neces sary number of signers to a petition for a special election at which) lb, proposition may be submitted to the voters. The appro prlatlon for the fire department cannot be reduced unless the number of man Is de creased, as the city must provide for the paymonts on the new central fire station. which was built on the "Installment plan." The last monthly report of City Auditor McAneney shows that the amounts appro prlated for some of the departments were Insufficient and have been overdrawn. For several months the streets and alleys fund has been depleted and It Is conceded that $10,000 Is . Insufficient for this department. It Is likely . that the matter will come up at the meeting of . the ' city council this evening, at which time City Treasurer True Is expected; to make a report.

The Henry Wilier Associate riayers in "The Servant In the House," a drama in five acta, by Charles Ilann Kennedy. The cast: James Ponsonhy Makeshift, P. D.. the Most Reverend, the Lord Bishop of Lancashire John Westley The Iteverend William flmvthe. Vicar.. George Irving Aunt e. the Vicar" wife Lizzie Hudson Collier Mary, their niece Ml Edith Fpeare Mr. Robert Hmlth. a aentleman or necessary occupation Willis Granger Hncer. a Dase bov Henry Traver Mr.nson, a butler Howard Kyle Charles Rann Kennedy's allegory, which has been much debated since It waa offered first In America last season, I now being expounded at the Brandets by a capable company. The drama has changed none since It was first seen here, although Miss Lizzie Hudson Collier Is the only member of the cast that survives the progress of tlmo In connection with 'The Henry Miller Associate Players." The argument of the drama Is the familiar postulate that the world mould be a nice place to live In If men and women would but realise their obligations to one another. It Is as old as humanity, and up to date has proven as futile as humanity has been perverse. The mere fact that In the present Instance Mr. Kennedy alms his shafts especially at the church Itself, or, rather Its condition of defective "drainage." does not alter the course of the, play's Indictment of man kind. Maybe this Is the whip that Is to stimulate us Into such frenxy of contrition as will bring about the desired reformation; It has been a year since It was first pre sented here, and so far no sign of any social cataclysm Is noted. One doesn't like to be listed as a pessimist; but surface In dication favor the conclusion that Mr. Kennedy's preaching is no more potent than has been that of all the long line who have preceded him. It Is not espe cially to the credit of man that this Is so; It Is as easy to live rightly as to live wrongly, and only requires the subjuga tion of self to achieve the happy state all at least pretend to wish for. "The Servant In the House" shows how the better condition may be brought about, and does It In a way that Is Interesting. It Is not merely dry preaching one listens to, but a morning's life of an Interesting group of people, who are simply human. It Is a remarkable production from this standpoint alone, and deserves the careful attention It has been given. The company having It In hand is giving It very ef fective Interpretation. Mr. Kyle has a much more satisfying comprehension of the role of Manson than Mr. Creston Clarke showed. Mr. Clarke seemed to be under the obsession that It was necessary to sug gest the Savior In every word and ges ture; and persisted in a frequent offense against good taste and dramatic strength by so doing. Mr. Kyle gives his audience credit with having some discerning ability, and tactfully leaves to the people in front the matter of associating the character with the Son of Man. Mr. Granger is not so Impressive as the Dralnman as waa Mr. Clement, yet he gives the role a quality of sincerity that compensates in some measure for any power it may lose. Miss Collier Is still giving the wife of the vicar excellent care, and Mr. Irving Is decidedly convincing in the role of the minister who wrestles mightily with his own doubts and Anally resolves them In favor of the right. The work of Mr. Westley, Mr. Travers and Miss Speare Is good. "When Knlarhthood Was la Flower" at tae Boyd.

Mr. Morrison makes a fine bit ot a man In the role of Charles Brandon, giving It all the qualities of modest courage that would attract the notice of a princess of the royal blood to a captain In the king's guard. Mr. Ingraham has In King Henry VIII one of those character studies In which he takes such pleasure, and Is prov ing himself again a most capable actor. Mr. Dudley's Csskoden Is good, and the Buckingham of Mr. Duggan la well worked out. Miss Gates shows remarkable capacity as Mary Tudor; In fact, her performance last night showed the best conception of the part yet seen, at the Boyd, and that Is saying much, for the play has often been enaoted at the theater. If all of Miss Gates' work Is on the same plane she will be a decided success In Omaha. Mlas Valentine's Jane and Miss Hudson's Anne are also good. The play Is splendidly staged.

Conse quently Mrs. Sterling was not the triple divorcee her second spouse for awhile deemed her. to the Imperilling of domestic happiness. With this baste theme Lau rence Grattan has written for Miss Eva Taylor a farce which has a little more body and substance than the usual vaude ville sketch. Grattan himself plays th husband with Mis Taylor as hi wife. Miss Taylor Is familiar here as a come dienne of ability and her new tola will not diminish her popularity.

The girls are pretty enough to be interesting and they sing besides. Tho tuneful bits that became hits when the production appeared several seasons ago find friends and favorites still. "Tho Goo Goo Man" still has a home. A good house at the Krug last night gave generous appreciation of the show. Julia Dl Cynthia, as Trinket, sings "Peggy Brady," backed by a shamrock chorus, with unusual' success. The mimicry of Mattle Mart, as Kamorta, in the "How Can You Tell Till Tou Try" song claims approval. Mattle Is a cheerfully well developed and good looking blonde, with "those eyes," too. Though tho Jokes of Blubsy Mackinaw, played by Harry B. Watson, have been out of the shop for a long time, they are de livered to the audience with an air of sincere freshness.

Some novel spectacular effects serve to distinguish the current offering from predecessors at this theater. The extrava ganza, which form the first and third parts of the entertainment, are of about the same quality as others In recent time and the efforts of the comedians secure the same quantity of laughter. Vocally, the organisation Is better than the last two or three companies. A song In which a pony ballet Invaded the audience won the most encores of Sunday evening.

NEW YORK, March 14. After a day of conference and compromise the situation In the republican party of New York state Is still In the clouds. Hostilities have been postponed. Both the partisans of Senator Root, Governor Hughes and Senator Hln man on the one hand and of Timothy L. Woodruff, chairman of the state committee on the other, preserve a trucculent and glum mien. There Is no desire to duplicate, In the republican party, the situation over the state chairmanship that lately afflicted the democratic party. It Is not wished. In endeavoring to eliminate Mr. Woodruff, to make him a Conner, and Mr. Root in at tempting It does not wish to be a Murphy. Yet on the fate of Mr. Woodruff, a large measure of the fate of the republican party In the elections next fall is felt to hang. Senator Root, Lloyd C. Orlscom, president of the county committee, and the new school of republican leaders at large be lieve that Mr. Woodruff and his allies are directly responsible for the election of Allds as president protem of the state senate In the first Instance, and, when that proved a mistake, of Senator Cobb to succeed him, which they feel to be not only a personal affront to Senator Root, but a second mistake of only less weight. There fore there Is a strong disposition to de mand that Mr. Woodruff retire, and It Is understood that It Is with the express In tention of demanding his resignation that Senator Root came to New York last night. Senator Root would not say directly to day that such was his purpose, but he virtually admitted It. In this purpose, he held conferences this afternoon with Mr. Grlscom and James W. Wadsworth, speakers of the assembly and tonight with Mr. Woodruff himself. Neither he nor Mr. Grlscom would discuss the outcome of these conferences, but Mr. Woodruff waa more communicative. He consented to Interview himself for tho newspapers. "You may say this," he said: "When Mr. Woodruff was asked If Senator Root had demanded his resignation, he answered, 'ask Root.' "When Mr. Woodruff was asked If he was any question of retiring him, he an swered with even more emphasis, 'ask Root. "When Mr. Woodruff was asked if he Intended to resign of his own accord he answered with an emphasis almost border ing on belligerency: "Ak Root.' " In' iplte of the wide diversion of opinion as to what Is proper to do In the present crlsl within the republican party of the state, and what Is the proper way to do it, both sides are still sincerely anxious to avoid an open breach at the primaries. The adherents of Woodruff sum It up In one word hysteria. TROUBLE WITH NEW AUTO Klagstoa, N. Y., Man Wrecks Twro Store Fronts and lilts Wonina la First Effort to Drive It. KINGSTON. N.
