The public schools of Washington. D. C,
opened last Monday and nearly 60.000 chil
dren were enrolled. Under the superin
tendence of Dr. Davidson, formerly of
Omaha, beneficial results are expected.
System Instead of the confusion of former
years is confidently looked for, especially
n the mattr of adjusting school accom
modations to the number of children.
In securing Dr. Davidson, late of
Omaha, as superintendent of the schools,"
says the Washington Times, "the authori
ties have been peculiarly fortunate. Dr.
Davidson has made an excellent Impres
sion since he has been in Washington. On
Saturday he served notice on a big gath
ering of colored patrons of the schools
that It would not be worth while for them
to go about aligning Influence and putting
pulls" Into operation; he was going to
run the schools, and would not require
assistance of that sort.
"That is the right attitude; and the
best part of It Is that Dr. Davidson comes
here with a record which is earnest of his
purpose to make good on such a policy.
In Omaha he took charge of the schools
when they were almost as much a po
litical as an educational establishment.
He proved both the diplomat and the ad
ministrator. He got the politics eliminated
and th schools put on a solid business
basis,, besides developing the educstionaJ
work to th point where the system was
recognised as one of the models of the
"In the hands of a man of established
abilities, both educational and administra
tive, it Is to be hoped the Washington
schools are today entering on a new era.
Dr. Davluson has not made any promises,
which Is an excellent sign. In a very
short time he has performed most reassur
ingly, which is a better sign."

"The millers of the north will still be

JUDGE HOLDS EMPLOYE'S
NEGLIGENCE CAUSED DEATH
After the testimony on both sides had
been nearly completed and all of the
material facts communicated to the Jury
Judge Smith McPherson yesterday di
rected a verdict to be returned for the
company In th suit for llO.nno Instituted
by Otto Applequtst, administrator, for
the death of John Johnson. Johnson
was killed while unloading a lot of dump
cars In the L'nlon Pacific freight yards
In April, 1905. and a suit was brought
sgainst the company on the grounds that
It Incurred the responsibility of negligence
when the foreman in charge of the
freight handling crew went away while
the work was In progTess.
"It Is very clear in this case," said
the court, "that the man who un
fortunately lost his life was guilty of
contributory negligence to a degree that
absolved the company from all responsi
bility for his death.' He was not com
pelled to stand in the position where
common prudence should have shown he
was in danger of being killed, and that
hla acts of assisting to remove the
standard that kept a heavy piece of
machinery from falling put in Jeopardy
the company's property as well as his
own life. From the testimony it ap
peared almost a case of suicide, and no
construction of the ruleB of equity could
hold the company responsible for the
suicide of an employe."
FARMER FROM CHILLICOTHE
LOSES BIG SUM IN DRAFTS
L. S. Stump, a farmer, residing near
Chillicothe, la., reported to the police
yesterday morning that he had been
robbed of $3,500 or that he had lost his
pocketbook containing the money while

of Investing In farm lands. Of the
amount only 190 was cash. The re
mainder was In drafts, two for .00 each
and one for $ issued by the Ottumwa
National bank. The man spent some
time In the saloon and says ha did not
miss his pocketbook until late In the
evening. He denied that be waa In
toxicated, but. could not clearly explain
why he delayed so long In notifying the
police. Payment of the bank paper was
stopped by wire. The police detectives
are Inclined to believe that th old man
was "touched" by some of the South
Main street gang, whose regular vocation
Is to "roll" drunken men.

northern wheat Is preferred because it
makes a whiter fiour and iouks h little
better. It has no other advantage.
"I doubt if much was gained by the
dealers on the sudden rise Ui wheat
prices, for the reason that not one In
three bad an Idea that reciprocity would
be beaten, so none of them were long.
It Is my judgment that the price was
pushed up too fast, but it w-111 go higher
before spring. The situation Is simply
"The last government report gave us
about B.sO.noo.O'O buxhrls of wheat for this
year's crop. About 1PO,V0.010 bushels
were held over. Against this we .have
a home consumptive demand of about
6ln,(M),.M bushels for food and about
5.OVono bushels for teed. Our export In
form of flour Is about "5.000,00 bushels.
This will leav less than Sl,000.a) bushels
to hold over, which its far less than the
normal amount. In the meantime, the
Chicago clique, who were hit pretty hard
two years ago and who have been holding
a lot of wheat, are planning to get even
on the losses Incurred, and It wouldn't
surprise me In the least to see wheat
going at 1.2S In Chicago by April.
"Not so much of this gain is going
to the farmers, for they have been more
early to market than usual this season,
and more of thlB year's crop is In the
hands of the holders than Is usual at
this season of the year. In Chicago, for
example, a rule was passed by the Board
of Trade last week to recognise boats as
public warehouses, and already a consid
erable number of boats have been rented
for storage purposes for the winter. The
traffic on the lakes has been light, and
the boat owners prefer to tie up now and
rent their capacity for storage purposes
