Chief of Police Briggs Believed
Slated for Decapitation.
VARIOUS CHANGES EXPECTED
Ilonda Will Probnbly no Korcert to
Ilnlld i Viaduct Over Tracks
at Fortieth nnil P
While there has been no official Indi
cation since election, there seems to be
a well-understood Impression that Chief
of Police John Brlggs Is slated for de
capitation at the hands of tho new Board
of Fire and Police. Chief Brlggs was
on duty all daf yesterday usual, but
Chief of Detectives James Rhcahan was
said by a number of men about the city
hall to be In practical charge of the po
Chief Brlggs, It Is understood, will not
resign, and under the civil service rules
charges must be filed and proven against
him In order to warrant his dismissal.
Brlggs Is said to haVc been active for
Frank Koutsky's election. His activity,
however. Is said to have been of the same
order manifested by others of tho de
partment. It Is not thought, therefore,
that charges of political activity on the
part of Brlggs can be used against him
without including men who worked on
the side of the administration. Some
changes In both fire and pollco depart
ments are looked for with considerable
expectancy, both by the men of the de
partments and the public.
Concrete Plcra Completed,
Nine of the big concrete piers for the
new F street viaduct have been com
pleted and the plies for the foundation
of the east approach have been placed.
The work of completing tho viaduct Is
being rapidly pushed In order to com
plete the work during the warm weather.
City Engineer Herman Beal, who recently
Inspected the work, reports that tho new
bridge will be one of the bcJt improve
ments of the city.
With the completion of tho now via
duct at F street It Is probable that the
city will proceed to force the railroads
to erect a viaduct over the tracks at
Fortieth and P streets. For some time
real estate men and the railioad offi
cials have been dickering over the prop
osition to erect a wagon bildge and a
foot bridge over the tracks at this point.

In speaking of the Allman shows, M. E.
"It is a well known fact among the
show-going people, that the Allman

carnival companies touring this country."
Tho contract with the Allman show
states specifically that each md every

University of Omaha
Girls Are Hired to
Teach in Nebraska
Following closely upon the announce
ment that the State Board of Public In
struction has given to tho University of
Omaha the right to grant state teachers
certificates, comes the announcement
thnt of the girls in the graduating class
who are taking the normal work, several
have already secured positions In schools
for next year.
Of tho girls who graduate six are tak
ing the pedagogical work. Two will teach
In the Omaha schools. Miss Clara
Hendricksen will go to Gordon, Nob.,
wheii she will tench Latin and German
in tho high school of that place. Miss
Zella Becbo has been elected a member
of tho faculty of the Gretna High school.
The university officials feel that this
Is n deal of recognition, for It Is the only
school In Nebraska that has been given
the Tight to Issue teachers' certificates
nt this time to first graduates, and In
addition It Is said the school boards In
different cities .have shown their con
fidence In tho standard of tho work by
hiring the young women before they re
ceive their degree and before a reputation
has been established.
The university Is working toward the
establishment of a teachers' agency, but
contrary to tho plan In vogue In most
places, Is not charging Its graduates any
fee for aiding them In securing positions.
Another recent addition to the deport
ment of pedagogy Is tho introduction In
the curriculum of n course In the school
