AT TENT SERVICES
Large Audiences Attend Both
Morning and Evening.
The reception planned by the
Christian church people to take place
at the big tent, north of the court
house, Saturday evening was carried
out to the entire satisfaction of all
concerned. A splendid program was
given, though not Just as announced
In the papers. It was even better
than anticipated. But one number
was omitted, It being that of Mrs.
William Baird, and It was deeply re
gretted by all that she could not fill
her place on the program, having
been called to attend the funeral of
an old friend at St. Joseph, Mo. Mr.
and Mrs. Baird departed for St. Joe
Saturday afternoon. With the one
exceptiou the program was given
about as planned.
Mayor Sattler made a brief speech
of welcome, in which he turned over
the keys of the city to the managers
of the meeting. After the mayor,
Hon. R. B. Windham spoke of the
church work In the city, and extend
ed warm words of welcome to the
evangelists, and hoped that much
good work should result from their
stay In the city.
At the close of Mr. Windham's ad
dress the entire audience sang
"America," and Rev. Wilhite re
sponded to the welcome of Mayor
Sattler and Mr. Windham. Mr. Tuck
erman then sang a solo, which was
appreciated highly, while Mrs. Tuck-
The Burwood Has Great Attraction.
Of the many brilliant dramatic
successes achieved by the Messrs.
Shubert In recent months, "The
Creat John Ganton," a play of Amer
ican .finance, Is conspicuous. This
drama was given its first perform
ance at the Lyric theater in New
York. Its success was immediate,
and critics were unanimous In its
praise. The announcement that the
Shuberts are sending this attraction
in Its original form to the Burwood,
Omaha, for four days, starting Sun
day, September 19, will, therefore, be
Interestnig news to playgoers in this
part of the state. "The Great John
Ganton" tells a story of tremendous
power. The principal character is a
man of relentless business methods,
who has come into complete domina
tion of the packing business of the
world. How he throttles all compe
tition, deals with labor disorders and
dictates prices to both hemispheres,
Is grippingly told in the stage narra
tive. Mr. George Fawcett, considered
by many critics America's foremost
character actor, Is the star of the
production. His conception of John
Canton is said to be one of the most
notable contributions to the Amer
ican stage. Surrounding Mr. Fawcett
Is a company of Broadway players.
The Shuberts have spared no cost in
the preparation of this production.
Many of the scenes are almost lavish,
reflecting as they do glimpses of
fashionable life In Chicago. There is
an absorbing love story woven
among the more sordid themes of the
tory. John Ganton's son has fallen
in love with Miss May Keating, the
daughter of an old-time business
rival of the meat baron. Naturally
the match is abhorrent to the old
man and at a crisis in the play he
disinherits his son and throws him
out of the business. How the young
woman beards the old stock yard
lion in his den and succeeds in re
pstahlishinir her lover, forms the
most thrilling scene of the drama
The entire production fairly bristles
with interest and never fails to meet
a most enthusiastic reception.
Again Changes Hands.
The Eagle Beacon has again
changed hands, Mrs. Inez Brlnkworth
disposing of her Interest In the plant
to Charles E. Allen. The Beacon has
had a sort of a checkered career
from its Infancy, but with the right
man at its head the paper can be
placed upon a good paying basis, and
the Journal hopes that Mr. Allen
will prove to be that man. Eagle
lias a live set of business men, who
lire liberal advertisers, and the town
Is surrounded by tin' excellent class
cf farmers, who will prove loyal to
the support of the EuRle under or
dinary circumstances, and stand by
anyone who Is disposed to do right
bv the town and community. The
Journal wishes Mr. Allen all the buc

The receiving line was composed
of Rev. Luther Moore and wife, Rev.
Tuckerman and wife and Rev. Wil
hite and many others. After the re
ceDtlon the ladies of the church
served delicious refreshments
The services yesterday and last
night were well attended by atten
tive listeners. Evangelist Wilhite
preached two powerful sermons,
which were well received and left a
deep Impression on the audience. He
made a strong appeal to the young
people of the city to take a stand for
a Better life. The special music by
Mr. Tuckerman and wife added much
to the effect of the strong and able
sermons delivered by the evangelist.
The M. E. people closed their
church and attended the service in
the big tent. As a result of the first
day's effort, at the first invitation
for those desiring to live a better
life, nineteen persons came forward,
and before the meeting closed twen
ty had signified their intention to
unite with the church. Among those
who signified such intention were
some of the best young people of the

Cuss County Product.
Frank E. Schiater of Plattsmouth
the Democratic candidate for
treasurer of Cass county. He is now
serving his first term in that office
and relies upon his record of two
years to recommend him and secure
the support of the voters of that
prosperous old county. The funds
of the county are In good hands and
the records of the office are open for
Inspection for the public any time.
Frank Is a Cass county boy, born In
Plattsmouth about forty years ago,
and has lived In Cass county all his
life. He Is most popular where he is
best known and they run short of
material to make better stuff about
the time he was born. Wish I had
an opportunity to vote for him. Any
how, hope he will get a rousing ma
jority. Lincoln Herald.

Harry Palmer of Louisville, Neb.,
is in the city on his way to Harvard,
where he will take up a course of

Cardinal Cibtxms on Prohibition.
Prohibitionists all over the coun
try are making an effort to suppress
the use of intoxicating liquors, and
while I hope they will succeed, I
don't think they will. Reform must
come from within, not from with
out. You cannot legislate for vlr-
ture," said Cardinal Gibbons the
other day. His remarks were made
during an address following the
pledge given to the main portion of
a class he had confirmed in St. Mary's
church, adjoining Doughoregan
manor, on the historic old Carroll
estate, near Baltimore.
"There is but one thing to do,
continued the cardinal, "and that is
to inculcate abstinence in young per
sons, so they may not become slaves
to liquor. Its effects are found
everywhere, sometimes even among
churchmen. No church should tol
erate a clergyman who drinks. If a
tendency to drink is found among
seminarians, they should be asked to
leave off studying for the sacred min
istry. Should the superior of St.
Charles college, who is present, find
among his students one or another
with an Inclination toward strong
drink, he would at once have that
"Understand me, I do not mean to
say that it is a sin to take a little re
freshment, but it should be taken at
the proper time, and once you are of
age you are not to make up for lost
time. The Catholic church does not
advocate extremes, but wisely, safely,
steers in the middle course.

D. a LOSS
Round House at South Omaha En
tailing a Loss of $50,000.
The less to the Burlington rail
road through the burning of Its
roundhouse at South Omaha Satur
day night was approximately $50.-
000, according to the estimate of
the chief of the fire department and
the foreman of the yards. The
roundhouse contained five stalls for
engines. Three of these were oc
eupled by engines. A new engine had
been brought in from Havelock Sat
urday and had not yet gone Into com
mission. It was rendered worthless.
The origin of the fire is somethng
of a mystery, but is thought to be due
to the accidental Ignition of a quan
tity of oil and waste. One of the
men had gone In to fill a torch w ith
oil and a few moments after he came
out the flames sprang up and filled
the whole interior so quickly that
no one could go In or save any of
the three valuable engines. By the
time' the fire chief arrived the roof
had fallen in and the loss was total.
A circumstance which caused some
delay to No. 2 fire company was that
house movers were moving a house
In the street over which the com
pany had to run to approach the
fire. . By good fortune the company
avoided a collision, but it was com
pelled to retrace its course and was
delayed several minutes.
This condition of affairs is a source
of concern to the chief. He will ask
that house movers be compelled to
report to No. 1 fire hall each night
where they leave houses In transit.
J. C. Brandon, while on a visit to
his farm over In Mills county, Iowa,
south of Glenwood, barreled 100 bar
rels of the finest apples we have seen
this season. He brought a couple of
specimens over when he returned to
Plattsmouth to show the Journal
what kind of apples they raise across
the the Big Muddy, and we want to
tell you, they are dandies. It Isn't
any wonder that Mills county Is so
well known for her fine apples, If the
ones Mr. Brandon left at this office
are fair samples. Cass county ought
to raise just as fine apples as Mills
county, and we can, if we do not al
Burlington detectives will go to
PapilMon today to attend the trial
of two men, Walters and Adair, who
are charged with receiving stolen
property. This is the wind up of the
raid made about a year ago, when
Burlington sleuths worked out com
plaints about cars being robbed af
ter leaving Omaha. It was found
that car3 were opened In Omaha and
that the men got In the cars and
rode them out to the Fort Crook line
Junction, where the goods were
thrown out of the car. A brother of
Adair Is now serving a term In the
penitentiary for this work, after
pleading guilty. The two men to be
tried Monday at Papillion are mere
ly charged with receiving property
taken from the cars. Lincoln Jour
