Pany yesterday obeyed the Instructions
of the city council Imparted at tha meet
ing Monday night and yesterday re
moved tha big pole at the corner of
Broadway and Bryant street. It stood
exactly at the point where one of the
pedeetala has been located to bear the
flaming are light, and the efforts that
have been made for the last three montha
to ecu re It removal han all failed.
The huge pole belonged to the electric
light company, but It carried the Postal
Telegraph company' wire under an
agreement made several yeara ego. The
telegraph company claimed It and for
bade ita removal, or lla use for any other
purpose than to carry the electric light
wire. Manager English finally took the
matter up with the council and the
council acted. City Electrician McKln
ley wm Instructed to remove any city
wire ih pole might be carrying and
Manager English waa directed to remove
It. K kept hie couneel and detailed a
party of skilled linemen early yesterday
morning. Two of them ascended the
pole and In a few minutes every rental
wire was detached, crossarm were re
moved and thrown aside and the tall
pole waa bare from the ground up. The
work was so skillfully dona that not a
wire was short-circuited by a single
toacb and the operators at the keys along
th lines, which extend from New Tork
to Ban Francisco, never missed a click.
The cement was broken from the base
and the pole waa half. dug out and lean
ing over before the first Tostal employe
happened to come along. lie was a line
man and, It required five minutes before
he fully realized what was going on. II
raa to th office and reported. If any
action waa contemplated It waa too late
and not even a protest doveloped.
All of the cables for the new naming
aro lamps has been placed and the last
connections with the cables In th
pedestals were being mad yesterday. Th
lamp have been on hand for several
weeks. Th only cause of delay has been
th failure of the General Electric com
pany to send th proper hangers for the
new lamps by which they are attached
to th pedeetala.
Manager English ha been contemplat
ing for several day th us of tem
porary hanger and yesterday decided to
us them for the Installation of the
lamps. It la probable now that within
a week th current will be turned on th
new system and the business section of
Council IHuffe be transformed Into one

Musks lovers who failed to find a seat
tn th crowded Danobo hall last night
missed th opportunity of hearing on of
th moat remarkable voice that ha ever
charmed a Council muffs audience.
Iloiger Itlrkerod, the tanlsh baritone, did
trior than Consul Llngoy and other cul
tured Danea expected of him. II held a
big audience for two hour In a state of
rapt admiration. ' '
Three-fourths of the audience were
Danish cltlxens, but fatherland pride was
not required to accord their fellow coun
tryman all of the appreciation possible.
Tbe genius of th man compelled ap
proval. Th hall waa not th best adapted for
cuncert purposes, but tha splendid volume
of th singer' vole swept away Impedi
menta and waa unaffected by environ
ment Only the lanea could understand
th word of th solos, but th rare voice
pok in the universal language of mualo
to all ears. la Some of the many enoores
Rwedlsh, Norwegian and Danish folk lor

era almost out of their seats. II played
with a master band upon th emotion
and between selection there war genuine
tempest of applause. Thus who have
heard Jeand Reszk and Battlstlnl de
clared last night that Ulrkerod was In
very respect their equal with dramatic
Intensity la th Interpretation of his

Morris, a Mabrayito,
Signs His Own Bond
EdJIa 1C! Morris, Nfgro prlss flutter,
wrestler. Jockey and Mabraylta, Just fin
ishing a two-year term In the federal
prison at Leavenworth, Kan., can Qualify
aa being worth 110,000. Ha yesterday
signed his own (10,000 bond to appoar in
tha district court for trial on numerous
Indictments la connection with Mabrsy's
operations tn Council Bluffs.
Morris waa brought here when Mabray
was taken to Dei Moines and both were
locked up in tha county jails of tha two
cltiea to be held as star witnesses ln tha
oasea against Ban Marka and tha others
that are enpected to follow. Morris yes
terday algned hla.pwn bond and waa re
leased from the 'Pottawattamie county
In tha Mabray coda Morris was known
as No. 11, and tha indictment in which he
figured, that led to the Indictment upon
which he waa to be tried at Council
Bluffs, occurred when ha Is said to have
led Jamea Webber Into the Mabray "bis
store" In Council Bluffs and oaused him
to deposit tS.000. Webber recently died at
hla home In Bliomokln, Pa.
Attorney Ooeral Cosson, who haa man
aged thar Mabray casrs here, oonswited to
the release of Morris, and aa there waa
no one available to furnish tha bond re
quired but himself, he waa considered to
be sufficient, and under the Instructions
from the attorpey general's office. County
Attorney Capell applied to Judge Arthur
In tha district court for an order per
mitting the negro to sign his own bond.
Tbe home of Morris Is ln New York
city and owing to bis arrt by tha state
authority he la deprived of th provision
of th federal prison law that permits
transiwrtatlon to b txsued to him to his
former home. He got l& and th suit of
clothes he Is wearing when b left the
Leavenworth prison last Saturday even
ing. Morris waa Interested In a prise fight
or wrestling match that wa pulled off ln
an empty building located oi. Broadway
and blxteenth atreet, and which was
fully gone Into when the civil suits ag
gregating nearly fbOO.coo were thrown out
of court by.Judg Smith McPherson last
spilng. It Is SLSserted that th money
Webber lost In the old Sixteenth street
saloon on th night of July S, 1WT, was
furnished to him by a woman of the un
derworld In a Pennsylvania city. It is de
clared by all of th Mabray men that
Morris was generally a faithful employ,
prompt to "die" In th stipulated wanner
and at th proper time.

SCOTCHMEN LEAVING HOME
of k Wild Fat Lands
Canada Too Strong- to
Scotland Is being drained of her life's
blood. In tha highlands and the low
lands th old people are being left In
loneliness, and by their hearthsides they
are thinking wistfully of th bairns who
one played around them. There Is si
lence now In many Scottish homes. Tbe
footstep of tho young folw no longer
clatter up from the village street or
crush th scent out of tha purple heather
on th hillsides. Th bairns hav grown
up into tall men and women, and they
hav listened to th voice which is call
ing away th sturdiest son and th
tallest lasses of Scotland. Tbey hav
followed th call and hav con to build
homes In th far west, while the old
folk sit with clasped hands, bugging; re
membrance, which Is but a cold and
During tha past few years this tide of
emigration from Scotland has swelled
and broadened into a great, rushing, Im
petuous torrent. The son of Scotland
are leaving their native soil not slngl
spies, but In battalions. Th new census
returns reveal a desolated country with
deserted villages and abandoned parishes.
Even ln tha towns th artisans are leav
ing their factorlea and besieging the emi
gration officer for cheap passages to
are amaxing figures which will
strike sharp arrows Into the hearts of
Scdtsmen who hav prld tn their coun
try's h Htory and a love of It soil. In
ten yeara a quarter of a million of peo
ple hav been drained from th popula
tion of flv millions. Canada alone
absorbs Scotsmen at the rate of 17,000
a year, and this year will ae a large
Increase above this flgur. Even In East
Lothian, th most prosperous and fertile
province in Scotland, there are oecreaues
in population ln half th towns and vil
lages. In more barren districts depopu
lation haa been mor swift and more
tragic It Is tru to say that only the
old people and the Infirm and th very
poor bave been left behind In villages
w'ulch ten and twenty years ago were
full of busy Ufa and lusty manhood.
Th vole of th Canailan cdvertlser

Canada already Is a transplanted Scot
land. It la the Scotland of th American
continent. Ita map Is strewn with Scot

as deep aa that of the Irishman for tha
Emerald Island, deeper, perhaps, than
tha English colonist for the mother ooun-try.
