the great amount of cable put under

There will be twenty-two of the (laming
arcs on bioadway and the reinamuer
will be on Pearl and Mouth Main streets,
r'our of the lamps on liroauwjy have not
been placed for tint reason that poles are
in the way. They are located ai the
corner of liroadway ana Main and at
Seventh, Eighth and Ninth sueris. Man
ager Englisu endeavored to overcome the
obstacles at these points by swinging the
lamp on tha telegraph and telephone
pules that occupy the sites and teed them
from tho regular arc Imi.t circuit, but aa
theta circuits are aes gnrd to supply
. and tha flaming arc ueo lo t amphures
of lower voltage, It waa iifcensary to
place a reparato transformer on en eh. of
the poles. Manager Kngllnh ordered
these oarly In the struggle and they were
shipped from the factory at I'lttHfleld,
Maes., on October M, but so far have
failed to show up, although material
ordered since ha been received. Until
then transformers arrive the lamp on
theee pole cannot be lighted.

Tha total cost to the company for the
Installation of tha new service ha ex

will give about twenty time as much

will give an Illumination on the streets

the numerous machines that requlr It.
The construction principle of the tntlte

times heavier than the uninformed

pier to sustain tho dynamo and pounding

With an outburst of good-fellowship

ment In centering the thought of the ss-
in.iHuon upon tne general theme "Th
Fhyeiral side of Poliool Life." We be
lieve that the nhvsicsl if.r
child Is of the most vital and ronsenuen

The position which Nebraska oc?u-a

to leave the regular schools, or who have
become retarded In their work.
We commend all attempt of whatever

Winahlp for New Method.
Dr. A. E. Wlnshlp. editor of the New
England Journal of Education, pleaded
for looser methods In the modern edu
eatlonal dispensation. Ho condemned the
rigid rule which make a prescribed cur
rlculum more valuable than the student
and denied that . modern education had
been travestied by the desire for culture,
It la pervaded too much, he said, by
tho atmosphere of Industrial life and
controlled too much by the business man
who 1 demanding super-efficiency Ir
mathematics. The mathematics course
taught at present he roundly scored as
Inefficient because It teaches pupils knowl
edge which they are not ready to absorb.
"Loosen up on thl regulation scheme,"
was the advice he emphasised.
Teacher Weep tor Hoys.
Tha convention had been all laughter
and work and enthusiasm until Dr.
"Wlnshlp began ft plea for better treat
ment of the truant boys of the schools,
In pathetto paragraphs the speaker re.
ferred to the work of Hen Peterson, a
truant officer at Muskegon, who because
he was square with the boys and they
believed In him eliminated what threat
ened destruction of the school system. He
recounted the work of the great-hearted
John Brennan, superintendent of school
In ft little town In northern Michigan,
who established a course Jn high school
known as course twenty-three for boys
Who left school ln the lower grades and
later regretted It. The work of these
men, told In ft sympathetic manner,
caused a snuffle In the crowded Audi
torium and before the doctor had con
eluded hundreds of bright-eyed, pretty
school teacher were Industriously wlp
Ing th tear from reddening eyes.
Alloa l.nlhrop Is Eulogised.
'I have never," said Dr. Wlnshlp con,
gratulutlng the convention on It success
and the spirit of the teachera toward
their work, "seen a woman preside at
ao large ft convention with auch grace
and skill as Miss Lathrop has presided
at this meeting. And I have never seen
man who did It better."
The last number on the program was
an address by Francis O. Hlulr, state
superintendent of Illinois, who spoke of
"Waste In Education," und in his speak
Ing spared not the stute of Illinois nor
other states, all he declared having be
como "weak-kneed and fuint-hearted ln
the great work they have started." He
asked for larger appropriations tnai
teacher might be paid more and that
'tho Kreatest cause of waste ln edu
cation" might be removed.
Schools Must Have Honey.
"We've got to havo more money," said
Dr. Hlair. "Thero will always be a leak In
education until we have enough money
to put the schools on ft going basis. The
fight I to get school board to levy taxes
o that we can get principals and super
Intendents who know more than to draw
their salary und their breath."

Recall Petition Against Administra
tion is Harmed.
THREE DISTURBING FACTORS
One Movement Rased on Alleg-ed
Defect In Law Extending- Term
of Present City Admlnlatra.
Hon In "oath Omaha-
Those whd believed that the defeat of
annexation would bring quiet and peaca
to the turbulent spirit of the Magic city
were disillusioned yesterday when It was
learned that ft recall petition wa to be
circulated for the ouster of the city ad
One of the principals In the movement
Is an annexationist and the other Is ft
man who claim to have been the subject
of unmerited mud sllngrng during; th
campaign just closed.
Another movement said to have origin.
In Omaha Is based on an alleged defect
In the law extending the terms of tha
present city officials. It Is sold that at
torneys are working on the cas and
will take the matter into court.
The third cloud upon the political
horizon Is the maturing of the threat
made by the annexationists to deprlva
South Omaha of tho convenience of the
local deputy treasurershlp. According to
those. who are behind tha movement, tha
law does not warrant the maintenance
of a deputy treasurer here. This argu
ment has not met with ft great deal of
favor among the people of the city who
have enjoyed the convenience of the local
office for some time. The long trip to
Omaha for the payment of taxes 1 not
looked upon with favor by the taxpayer.
Those interested In the recall petition
say that they are not anxious to have
tho proposition come to maturity before)
next April, at which time the fight
against the extension of the terms ot
office will be made.
Some ai the 'city officials when they
learned of the new movement expressed
their disapprobation In terms mora
graphic than polite. They say that much
of tho trouble charged to the administra
tion is due to continual agitation.
