Aspect of the Fight for Secretary
ship of School Board.
OEPENES ON THE NEW MElIBEr
Llnrnut Shown that Man Chosen
Sueee?d Boorke on Hoard May
Decide the Election of
Again the office of secretary of the
Omaha Board of Education is the foot
ball of rolitics.
History is quite likly to repeat itself,
and J. F. Burgess, the incumbent, is in
imminent danger of being set aside in
favor of W. T. Bourke under exactly the
same conditions as prevailed when James
M. Gillan was set aside In fuvor of Mr.
Burgess. No charge of any sort is made
against Mr. Burgess; it is admitted by all
that he has been a good man in the posi
tion of secretary of the School board, and
he is accused of nothing more serious
than being a little "cranky" at times.
Men who are fimiliar with the work of
the office say that Burgess is both faith
ful and efficient, that his records ate
models of exactness, and that he has
managed his office economically.
Boorke AVauts the Pluce.
Over against this Is set the claim of Mr.
Bourke, which amounts to the fact that
he wants the place. Bourke has just
resigned as member of the board, for the
purpose of contesting with Burgess for
the place, the resignation following a
quiet campaign that has been carried on
for several months. On the election by
the board of a successor to fill Bourke's
unexpired term as member will turn the
election of secretary.
At present the lineup of the board mem
For Burgess. For Bourke.
Members Sears and Courtney are listed
as uncertain, although it Is commonly be
lieved that Courtney will vote for Bourke;
Sears has been counted for both sides,
but is thought to lean to Burgess.
Seven votes are required to elect, and so
the election of a new member on Monday
night will determine the question. It has
been reported that Sears has expressed
himself that, In event of his voting for
a new member who is in favor of Bur
gess, he will vote for Bourke for secre
tary, and vice versa. This will give Sears
the decision either way.
Richardson Snnisj Vp.
Considerable feeling has been engen
dered among the members of the board,
and quite a little gossip is rife among
those who have kept In touch with the
progress of Bourke's campaign. James
Richardson, who is chairman ot the fi
nance committee of the board, Is the
leader of the Burgess party, and in dis
cussing the question says:
Part of this trouble began last year.
when Bourke was on the finance com
mittee, and R. V. Cole was chairman.
They went to the secretary's office for
certain information befoie the appropri
ations were made. Burgess was on his
vacation, and they didn't get the Infor
mation. A deficit of nearly $100,000 devel
oped as the result of that appropriation
sheet, and Bourke and the members sup
porting him laid the deficit largely at
the door of Burgess, because they didn't
get the Information they desired on the
day they called, when he was out of
Trade In Janltorahip.
"My committee brought in a report
acknowledging the deficit. Since then
there has been trouble. Bourke Is a good
man, and I'd like to do what I can for
him, but under the circumstances, I am
for Burgess, Who is a good( faithful ser-
ant, and ought to be re-elected. The only
reason for Bourke's resigning to enter
the race for the secretaryship is that he
heeds the money."
At the last meeting of the board. Dr.
Holovtchiner, who is a member of the
buildings and grounds committee, suc
ceeded in having the pay of Thomas H.
Fitzgerald, head janitor at the high
school, reduced from $110 to $85, and An
drew Johnson, a former employe of
the Armour Packing company, elected
as assistant to Fitzgerald at a monthly
pay of $S5. In the case of all other as
sistant janitors the pay is $t. In this
instance it is offered that Fitzgerald Is
physically unable to attend to the . du
ties! of janitor, and therefore his pay is
reduced, while Johnson will in fact be
It is further alleged that Johnson is
close friend of Jacobson, Who will
vote for Bourke under the circumstances,
as Holovtchiner has been and is a
champion of Bourke for the office.
When Bnrgeaa Got the Job.
Ten years ago a very similar state of
affairs was presented. James H. GUI an
had been secretary of the board for
several years, succeeding Charles Con
noyer, who had succeeded J. B. Piper.
Burgess had served as a , member of the
board for five years, and early in 1900
resigned to make the campaign for the
secretaryship. He finally succeeded in
defeating Gillan, and took over the of
fice in July, 1900, holding it ever since.

new factory will have a greater output
than the one which was burned.

pany because of alleged lack ,of pressure
the night his factory burned.
Wyoming Oil Line
m Working Order
The Franco-Wyoming Oil company's
pipe line from the Salt Creek fields to
Casper, Wyo., has been completed and
tested and is now ready for oil.
The pipe line is Xirty-eight and one
half miles in length and has been tested
at 770 pounds pressure. This is the first
step in the work of getting oil from the
Wyoming fields to the Omaha market
and is deeply interesting to business men
of this city.
