Over all these questions a hot fight for
and against, will be wages and the out
come of each and all Is In doubt.
The officers and directors of the club
have filed a report which declares that a
"further continuance of the paid-waiting
list Is a travesty upon the constitution and
the Individual lights of members and It
should be abolished.

The city council has agreed upon submis
sion t the police magistrate. The submis
sion is a trifle sarcastic and unfriendly,
but at least an emissary has been ap
pointed to wait upon his honor and ask
him what he may be pleased to ask as a
modification of the garbage ordinance that
will permit him to enforce It. At the meet
Inn of the council held Thursday morning
a communication was received from Health
Commissioner Connell stating that the men
brought before Judge Crawford for violat
ing the garbage ordinance or the milk
ordinance are greeted with a smile and
Immediately discharged without a question
or admonition. Within the last month the
ordinance was amended once after a dis
pute between Assistant City Attorney Dunn
and the police Judge, but even that seems
to be Insufficient.
"Oo down and find out what be wants,"
said Councilman Funkhouser. "Wt can't
afford to go on for three years more of
monkeying and horse piay. The whole thing
Is a farce."
Judge Iterka having been a police Judge
himself, as well as being famous as a
pacificator, was appointed to go down and
treat with the obdurate bench and reach
some basis of compromise.
Some change tn the charter will be made
if possible so that the city will have a bet
ter chance to legislate upon the letting of
contracts to dispose of refuse and garbage.
The city electrician recommended that a
part of the S3.K00 surplus In the year's

they are changing the letters. The artesian
well of the City National bank building was
again brought up for discussion and the
street Improvements committee was In
structed to advise the company to clear
the street. The well, according to the re
port of Councilman McOovern, has reached
a depth of 1,233 feet three and one-half
Inches at 8 o'clock Thursday morning, but
that precise Information gave no hint as to
how much further It would have to be sunk
before water was reached.

Crawford Thursday morning.
"Judge, I have had to make my own liv

Mrs. Richardson, "and the only money he
has spent on me In the last three months
was 75 cents for a stove that he bought at

Ways and means of reducing the gradua

school were earnestly discussed by the
mothers of seniors at the meetlngbf the
Household Economio department Thursday
morning. The department was scheduled
to consider textiles and did begin that
Important study, but forsook that for the
more pertinent and personal question of
"high school expense."
Furthermore, this latter subject Is to be
given thorough discussion at the next meet
ing of the department, which Is to be held
at 1 o'clock, December 15. and to be open
to the public. Miss Turner, teacher of
domestic science at the High school, is to
be Invited to speak.
The club women expressed themselves as
favoring the Introduction of the study of
sewing Into the high school curriculum
If It was introduced aa a substitute and
not as an additional study.
The Idea that the high school girls might
be taught to fashion their own dresses and
the commencement gown be thus a diploma
and Illustration of her needlework skill
was heartily favored by the mothers.
Gowns for the girls were given chief at
tention as chief source of expense at grad
uation time, but the mothers whose high
school representatives were sons declared
that they, too, had a problem of Increased
expense. Some attention, therefore, was
given to the boy's problem of escorting the
girls to the festivities.
Mrs. F. J. Burnett, leader of the d'art
ment, presided at the morning session.
GOSSIP OF THE VIADUCTS
New Ordinance to lie Introduced to
Shorten the Krw Locust
A new ordinance will have to be passed
by the city council before th Docust street
viaduct can be built. The regular pruce
dure is for the council to pass a resolution
declaring the necessity of a viaduct and
then an ordinance giving Its seciflcatlon8.
The resolution already passed can stand as
It Is, but the ordinance will h:ive to be
repealed and another substituted, because
the councllmen have decided to shorten
the bridge. It was originally intended to
have it run on Locust street from Fifteenth
street to the east city limits. Now It will
run from Fourteenth, but the distance be
tween ' two streets at that point is less
than 100 feet. The new ordinance will be
presented and passed at the next meeting
of the council.
There, is some agitation among Fifth
ward citixens to have a viaduct on Paul
street Instead of on Nicholas. The Nich
olas, street bridge is directly In the line of
the heavy traffic of that part of town,
however, and as ' Paul street has never
been opened across the tracks, there is
not likely to be a change. The Nicholas
street bridge will soon be under way.

Jennie Gibson, a stenographer In the office
of Robert Smith, clerk of the district court,
was robbed of 135, her salary for half a
month, which she had received less than
two hours before. The police department
and Sheriff Hi alley's office are working
on the case, but as Miss Gibson can give
but a vague description of the highwaymen
there is little possibility of their apprehen

courage. When she reached her home,
Twenty-second and Leavenworth streets,
she collapsed from fright, but she waa able
to be at her desk as usual Thursday morn
ing. Leaving the county building Wednesday
evening Miss Gibson attended to some per

on foot. As she reached the corner of
Nineteenth street and St. Mary's avenue
two men stepped out from the shadow of a
telephone pole and one of them accosted
her. asking for the name of the street.
Affected with the natural fear of a
woman suddenly accosted on the street at
night. Miss Gibson, without looking up Into
the faces of the men, replied, "Bt. Mary's

The fellow started to examine the con

The order was obeyed and the highway
man who was doing the actual work pro
ceeded to search the several pockets of
Miss Gibson's coat. He found nothing of
value, remarking In a sneering tone when
he found some candy that she could keep
that. The man who was giving the orders
suggested that the girl's glasses be taken,
the mounting being of gold, but the other
said he would let her keep them so that
she might find her way home.
The men left Miss Glbaon and walked
briskly north on Nineteenth street while
she ran home.

ASKS POLICE TO FIND WIFE
Farmer from Iowa Thinks His Wif
Has Been Kidnaped Search
Leaving his wife In a clothing store
Thursday morning at 1122 Farnam street
while he went across the street to an em
ployment bureau to apply for a Job, Bert L.
Burk, a farmer of Walnut, la., returned to
the store and found she had disappeared.
He reported his loss to the police station.
Detective Dunn was detailed by Chief of
Detectives Savage to go to the store with
the man to find the missing woman. A
search of the store, which was demanded
by Burk, proved fruitless. The clerks in
the store said the woman had gone out
after Inquiring where she could buy some
furniture. Burk declares that his wife
wanted no furniture.
"I know that girl too well," he said, "to
believe that she has left this store. Some
body has kidnaped her or has hidden her In
this place. I am not satisfied with looking
under these counters."
If the woman Is not found soon m"re
detectives will be detailed to help the hus
band find her.
