" "Little Johnny Jones" may have been the best musical comedy Sioux City has seen this year , as Manager Jencks of the New Grand telegraphed that It was , but the show was a dis appointment to Norfolk playgoers. The disappointment was due largely to the fact that the show lacks any j one vivid moment of Intensity to .arouse the audience to a high pitch of enthusiasm. The audience was con stantly in the mood of hoping for some screamingly funny incident or some brilliant &ong that would take nway the Hat taste that the show , as It Is now constructed , leaves In the mouth. In many respects the show was a fair one. The scenic equipment was unusually attractive , the chorus was made up of pretty girls with good voices , sonic of the principals sang well , the costumes were pretty and the music for the most part catchy , though the "Johnny Jones" tunes have been whistled nil over'the country so much that there was no now thrill to bo found In the tunes of themselves. Probably It Is the Cohan personal ity that Is lacking to make "Johnny Jones" go with a snap nnd ginger that the audience expects nnd demands. The hit of the evening was "The Unknown , " who outshone "Johnny Jones" for favor with the audience. "The Unknown" reeled off a string of wit that kept things bubbling most of tbo time. "Goodbye , Flo , " was the most popular of the songs. The scene In which the ship moved off Into the ocean , with brilliant elec trical effects , was an attractive one. The stage settings , however , were so heavy that they caused tiresome waits between act . Perhaps the fact that "Little Johnny Jones" was the best musical comedy Sioux City has seen this year nnd the show wns the big fenturo of the week there merely tends to demonstrate strato that the American play pro duccrs nro not turning out the sue cessful musical comedies of n few years ngo , and that the legitimate typo of drama la returning to Its own. For one thing Is sure , "Little Johnny Jones" doesn't come within fifty miles of "Tho Prince of Pllson , " nnd Bomo of the musical comedies of that type , seen here three or four yea ago. There wns no Jess Dandy lu tbo water fountain to sot the au dience howling and leave It In oxtrno- dlnary good humor throughout the performance. But that mtiHlcal comedy , oven so , Is still popular In Norfolit IB Indicated by the fact that a bigger house greet ed "Johnny Jones , " than saw "The Third Degree , " "Tho Man of the Hour , " or "Tho Lion and The Mouse" all magnificent examples of the "legiti mate" drama. ASKED IN CENSUS. General Schedule to be Used for Man ufactures Is Completed. Washington , Nov. 1.1. The general schedule which will bo use In the federal - oral census of manufactures for the calendar year 1009 , has been formu lated , and about 700.000 printed copies have ; been ordered by Census Director E. Dana Durand. The schedule Is In the form of a four-page folder , about Oxl IVj Inches In size. It Is smaller and simpler than the ones upon which the 1000 and 1005 censuses of manufactures were taken. It has less than half as many spaces , for entries , as the earlier ones , and scorns likely to Insure loss labor and greater accuracy In the collection of the manufactures data. There are , In the general schedule , thirteen principal questions , with their subdivisions. This Is the same num ber as In the general schedule for 1905. There are , however , Important differences between the two schedules. Those comprise , In the 1909 schedule , the now questions authorized by con gress ; the elimination of former queries to which It Is possible to obtain approximately accurate replies , and also the simplification of others by their separation or combination in other forms. Another now question Involves the quantity of fuel used , whether anthra cite coal , bituminous coal , coke , wood , oil , gas or other kind. This Is ex pected to elicit replies affording con siderable data on the fuel conserva tion question. The thirteen principles questions are , briefly : First , a description of the establishment second , time In ope ration nnd hours worked ; third , capi tal Invested ; fourth , salaried em ployees ; fifth , wage earners , includ ing piece workers , on the payroll December - comber 15 , 1909 ; sixth , wage earners , including .pieceworkers , employed on the 15th day of each month ; seventh , salary and wage payments ; eight , ma terials , mill supplies and fuel ; ninth , miscellaneous expenses ; tenth , pro ducts ; eleventh , power ; twelfth , fuel ; thirteenth , remarks. The general schedule , beginning shortly after January 1 , 1910 , will bo circulated among the manufacturers throughout the country by special agents , of whom 1,600 will bo ap pointed from the successful applicants at the test examination , to be held November 3. Only Bogey Man On Taft's Trail. Washington , Nov. 13. So persist ent has been the anti-Taft talk in the eastern press for several days that finally Vice President Sherman gave out nn Interview In which ho said there was nothing to it , that President Taft had made good on his western trip , nnd would be renoml- nated without opposition. At the same time , the National Con servation association , of which form er President Eliot of Harvard , is president , authorized n statement that there was nothing In the charge that It was to bo used secretly as n medium for promoting the political fortunes of Colonel Roosevelt and trying to land him another presidential nomi nation In 1912. It Is noteworthy , as bearing on this antl-Tnft situation , that attacks have already been made on two members of the cabinet , and that a third Is soon to be put on the defensive. Sec retary Ballinger has been a target for criticism since last spring. Secretary Knox is now passing under the rod , the charge being made that his recall of Minister Crane before that gentle man could get out of the country was at the behest of one of the two great money powers of the country which has financial designs on China. Now comes the report that Post master General Hitchcock Is to suffer criticism because of a deal ho Is said to have made with the Guggenhelms , whereby Taft was to have Guggen heim support In the northwest In re turn for permission to get away with the coal lands in Alaska. All this talk , oven though It bo largely moonshine affects Taft , and undoubtedly It Is designed to do so ; at least , that Is the way folk down hero regard It. A politician who has heard several of the speeches delivered In the west by Chief Forester Plnchot , declared that every such speech carried an Implied menace to the Taft admin istration and that Mr. Plnchot's speeches might bo summarized as fol lows : "Tho salvation of this country depends ponds upon the loyal prosecution of the policies of Theodore Roosevelt. I stand before you as the chief ropro sentatlvo of those policies. It is a fortunate thing for the country that Its present chief executive is solemn1 ly pledged to carry on those policies. Ho pledged himself to those policies before his election. Beware of the man who seeks too closely to ad here to the law. 'It Is the letter kllloth.1 " Ho assorted further that the unex pressed but clearly Implied message of Mr. Plnchot In these speeches was : "Ift-Presldont Taft dares to deviate from the Roosevelt policies you know what to do to him. " It Is known that the president has boon kept advised as to what was going on , and that ho returns to Wash ington well Informed , and In posi tion to protect himself nnd his admin istration. His message to congress It Is said by men close to him , will bo n complete answer to all of the charges and insinuations made by cer tain men of the radical wing of the republican party. And BO the gossip goes the rounds , embracing not only the president , but thus far three prominent members of his cabinet. The Washington Post , ono of the eastern dallies of prominence , discuss ing the situation takes no stock In the antl-Taft talk. In an editorial It says : "Among thoHo to welcome the pres ident home was the bogey man. Ho had not been In evidence since the Chicago convention. Yesterday he ! had In his possession 'n concatenation ! of coincidences * * * strongly resembling a chain of strikingly sig nificant political events , ' that he had curled and twisted Into a 'far-roach- [ Ing and shrewdly organized political > movement. ' This ho had prepared to submit to Mr. Taft on his arrival. It goes without saying that the bogey man's flyer wns tnggcd 1912 , nnd that the far-away look under his visor pierced South Africa. "Someone ban defined a dream as being an unwinding chain of verbs something doing all the time , until nil of n sudden it snaps of Its own weight. So with the presidential con spiracy story of yesterday , only In stead of an unbroken chain of verbs , the name 'Pinchot' constantly recurs. Mr. Pinchot , wo are expected to be lieve , has betrayed his chief and Is the head center of the widest , deep est and most insidious conspiracy over hatched In political life. Already ho controls the press and the maga zines and has three members of the cabinet under fire from his concealed guns. "Tho convention of 1912 is to bo captured , and the story of 1880 Is to be repeated. By 1912 Mr. Plnchot will have gained at least two re cruits Senator La Follette and ex- Secretary Garlleld. In the roles of Conkling , Cameron and Logan , with Roosevelt as Grant , they will cast 306 votes , nnd stand pat. But. hold. The writer's analogy nods here , and It Is discovered that La Follette Is playing a double role. lie wants to be James A. Garfleld. It is an awfully sudden shift , but it wins on the historic thir ty-sixth ballot. Taft Is beaten for re-nomination , and Roosevelt is out- sldo the breastworks , too. In sporting parlance La Follette has given them the 'double cross. ' "Too bad to add that the conspiracy article admits , at the end , that Mr. Taft's seconds have not the slightest idea that Mr. Roosevelt Is n party to the 'concerted movement , ' or would sanction it If he knew of It. Mr. Taft's friends might say , also , with equal confidence that Mr. Roosevelt Is the last man to allow his friends to put him before the country In any such light , and that Mr. Pinchot Is equally free of any suspicion of betraying President Taft or embarrassing Mr. Roosevelt "But what Is all this to the bogey man ? He knows a concatenation of coincidences when ho sees one runn ing at large. " LEARN TO PREACH BY MAIL. The Chicago Congregational Seminary to Establish Correspondence Course. Chicago , Nov. 13. A correspond ence school for ministerial studies is an Innovation which Is to be started in connection with the Chicago Theo logical seminary by the Congregation al church. Its establishment was de cided at the eighteenth triennial con vention of Congregational churches , now being held hero. The especial aim will be to reach those preachers already in the field , but who need moro training. TO CHANGE THE INAUGURATION. All the Governors Except Four In Fav or of the Plan. Washington , Nov. 13. The gover nors of all the states of the union , with the exception of four , Connecti cut , Georgia , Washington and Wyom ing , are heartily In favor of the chang ing of the date for the Inauguration of the president of the United States from March 4 to the last Thursday in April. As members of the national commit tee they Intend to exorcise all their influence at the coming session of congress to have a constitutional amendment submitted. Commissioner McFarland of the District of Columbia , as president of the organization , had collected a largo amount of material , Including photographs of Washington on the last Inauguration , a compari son of the weather hero March 4 nnd on the last Thursday In April , the death roll of victims who have been sacrificed to the severe weather and other material which will , It Is be lieved , make a great Impression , not only upon Congress , but upon the public generally.

Now York , Nov. 13. The stock ex change seat of B. H. Harrlman , which has been sold for about $80,000 , was purchased by him forty years ago for $10,000 and , according to his associ ates , was the basis of the vast for tune which ho left. Mr. Harrlman told n friend , It Is said , that he pur chased the seat with money which that from that moment his fortunes began to increase. Nellgh-Madlson Game. Madison , Nob. , Nov. 13. Special to The NOWB : The Nollgh nnd Madison high school football teams will join Issues on the homo gridiron Saturday. Coach Day , of the Madison aggrega tion , has his team In battle nrrny nnd Is quite confident that the Nollgh team bus the fight of the season on Its hands. East Fights for Electoral Vote. Washington , Nov. 13. Already the politicians are looking forward with Interest to the taking of the census , next spring the democrats with moro ! or loss complacency and satisfaction ; the republicans with more or less anxiety , for If the census should de mand a rearranging of the electoral college , and n slilftlng of a number of Its votes , the republlcnn pnrty would bo more likely to lose than the democratic party. ' The census for 1910 will determine for ton years the membership of the house of representatives , nnd also of the electoral college. In none of the north Atlantic states , where the republican party Is strong , has there boon , since 1900 , any largo Increase In population ; In fact , In some of the smaller of these states population has been for ten years almost at a stand still. But In the west and the south west , the former uncertain politically , and the latter strongly democratic , the population gains have been very conj j alderablo. Of course , the basis of representa tion In the house will be changed as the result of the next census , and In stead of their being ono member for each block of 194,182 Inhabitants , It will undoubtedly bo ono for each block of considerably more than 200-J 000. A house based on the present' ' ratio would mean an increase of about seventy-five In the membership , which Is undesirable for several reasons , and also out of the question considering the present crowded condition of the house chamber. I Should there bo Increase an of the i ratio , so as to retain the same num- j of members as the present , 391 , n' ' few states north of the Ohio and east' ' of the Missouri , excepting possibly j Michigan , Minnesota and the Dakotas , probably would lose ono or more of their present representation. It Is [ in this territory that the republican party wins Its presidential battles. Such an Increase In ratio as has just been mentioned would result in gains In membership in several of the states of the south , among them Alabama , Georgia , Texas and Oklahoma , nil democratic strongholds. There also probably would be gains In the north west , notably In the neighborhood of Puget sound , and In Minnesota and the states near it. Other gains prob ably will appear In several of the In- termountaln regions , broadly speak ing , are not reliably republican , al though In most cases leaning in that direction. It is thought such as these that are causing republican politicians more | or less anxiety. Cutting off repro- sentatlon from such republican states as Ohio , Iowa , Michigan , Wisconsin , Pennsylvania , New York and Massa-i chusetts , to say nothing of Indiana , ] which since free silver times , and un til last year and this , has been reli ably republican , and giving it to Ala bama , Georgia , Texas , Oklahoma , per haps to Missouri , and to some of the politically uncertain states of the Intermountain - termountain and northwest regions might possibly mean a reversal of af fairs and the election of a democratic president In 1912 , for it Is assumed that , other things being equal , the now apportionment will bo made by con gress prior to that time. The reap- portlonment following the census of 1900 was made In 1903 , and it would have been made earlier had a pres idential election been at hand. The count will be made next spring of all' the Inhabitants , and the census bureau 1 will have all of the totals made up for the use of the session of congress i which will meet the following Decem ber. Speaking conservatively , the addi tion of fifteen to twenty electoral votes | to the south , and the taking nway of. a like number from the sure republican states pf the north and east , probably would make the next presidential election a very Interesting affair , re gnrdless of the candidates and the Issues. Especially will this bo true If existing republican dissatisfaction should continue some of the re publican states of the central west , notably Wisconsin , Minnesota , Iowa , Kansas and Nebraska. East vs. South and West. Viewed from any standpoint , the situation is ono sufficiently serious to cause republicans to sit up and take notice. Politicians In the east have already been figuring on the next ratio of representation. They are desirous of shaping affairs so that their section shall lose as little as possible in the house nnd the electoral college. Should a combination as to this ques tion of ratio bo formed between the south and the west , of which there Is at this early day some talk , It would easily defeat the plans of the east , and th f ; would still further add to the gravity of the situation , from the republican viewpoint. As throwing an Interesting sidelight on the question of political uncertain ty now existing , nnd nlludod to pre viously in this article , the following statement will bo worth reading. It Is made by J. Harry O'Brien , a prom inent business man of Indianapolis , who , has been spending several days In this city. Ho says discussing political condi tions In his state : "Indiana seems to be drifting back Into the democratic column. The tarIff - Iff Is responsible for this change. Within twenty years , Indiana has drifted away from the democracy , with which she stood In the days of Hend- ricks , Voorhlos and English , out through the doubtful area to republi canism. This was on account of the revolt In the state against Bryanlsm. With Bryan apparently out of the way J ' the state BOOIIIB starting on the re- I turn journey Into the realm of doubt , through which many hope It will pass Into the democratic column. "Sonntor Bovorldgo cnn bo returned to the Bonnto next yenr , but It Is only his position ns nn Insurgent that had made his place secure. The only ex cuse the people of Indiana will accept next year for the election of a repub lican legislature Is the assurance that such a legislature will return a low- tariff republican to the senate. "Notwithstanding the Immense pro tected Interests of the state , Indiana Is In favor of revising the tariff down- ward. In n slandup light between high nnd low tariff elements , party nnmcs nnd relationships eliminated , the Inttcr would win by nt least 100- 000. And what I say of Indiana , Is also true , ns wo understand things in that state , of practically every state beyond Ohio. Such states as Minnesota seta , Wisconsin , Iowa , Nebraska , Kan sas and even Illinois , are filled with low-tariff sentiment. It will bo only a question of a few years when this sentiment will crystallize into a power that will drive all these states Into the democratic column , unless a change takes place in the attitude of republican leaders toward the men' who for the past decade have been furnishing the republican majorities. " Many will claim that Mr. O'Brien overstates the situation ; but that there Is something In what he says , folks In this vicinity well know. This con- dltlon of uncertainty and threatened republican lovolt In some of the strong republican states , only adds Ur the anxiety of those republicans In the east who have been figuring on the next congressional and electoral col- Iegireapportloument. . SENSE , AND DOLLARS , TOO. Marie Corelli Gives Praise to the American Woman. London , Nov. 13. In ono of the mo&t remarkable eulogies of American women and English women over de livered , iMnrie 'Corelli , who was the guest of honor at the luncheon of American women in London held at the Hotel Cecil today , in response to the toast to her health , said : American women in London arc a recognized force In our English social j life. There is hardly any society func- ' tlon of Importance that Is not graced' ' nnd enlivened by the presence of some J ' brilliant American women. Our golden youth , whose gold some times is apt to be rather scarce , are I always ready to fall prostrate at the feet of every American heiress , but we must occasionally give them credit for falling victims first to the charm I of the American woman's personality , without her dollars , for her charm is' ' always there. The American woman is not quite like other women. The same emo tions move her as moved Mother Eve but differently. She Is absolutely original. She Is not the daughter of an ancient kingdom , rich In history , literature and tradition , which felt the hand of the Roman conqueror before ; the Christian era. She has arisen , as It wore , suddenly , miraculously , like Venus from the foam of the sea. She Is the offspring of a'land of liber ty , a young country teeming with Im petuous rush and untried Ideas. She Is always fascinating and Interesting. SATURDAY SIFTINGS.

Radical Explains Situation. The most satisfactory explanation offered for the Insistent repetition of the rumor that Taft's renomlnatlon will be opposed in 1912 by the repub lican radicals , appeared today during the course of a talk had by several newspaper men with one of these rad icals. He said the conservation people ple would put up a program of defin ite legislation to congress the coming session a program involving water- powers , mineral and coal lands , etc. , and that they wanted tbo active co operation of the president to get it adopted by congress. They were cer tain congress would act If the presi dent were to keep his hands off after writing his message. The talk about ! not renomlnatlng him , this gentleman suggested , might for all ho knew to the contrary , be for the purpose of arousing him when the time comes for him to get busy with congress. BOXING BOUTS IN A CHURCH. Trinity Parish , in Seattle , Also Will Have Wrestling Matches. Seattle , Wash. , Nov. 13. Boxing bouts and wrestling matches , with the members of the organization on the mat , will be among the winter amuse ments tto be given by the Men's club of Trinity Parish church , according to .announcement of Cyril Arthur Player , recently from Oxford , England , the new assistant rector and secre tary. to President Roosevelt for the supreme premo bench to succeed the late Asso ciate Justice Brown , hut Mr. Roosevelt velt considered him too old and nam ed his attorney general , William H. Moody. It will be recalled also that , nt ono time , Mr. Taft considered Judge Lurton for an appointment In his cabi net , but finally selected Mr. Dickinson ns the representative of the south. It lequlred repeated efforts to induce the latter to accept the secretaryship of war. i Bonney Could Name Others. ( Emory Bonnoy's mother declares there are men "high up" Implicated In the depredations of the gang of Nor folk boy bandits , and that Bonnoy could have made startling disclosures in district court at Madison , If he had been willing to toll what ho know. Ho remained silent , sno says , for the reason that telling would have done htm no good and that he was afraid of consequences when ho should get out of jail. She says Bonney was not the leader of the gang , but that older men than ho , living hero In Norfolk , were at the head of the youthful thieves. Mrs. Bonnoy says that her son would have willingly pleaded guilty to petty larceny , which was the final charge against him , live months ngo , nnd she says that If ho had chosen to stand trial finally Instead of pleading guilty , he could have coma homo free with his mother , because of a lack of evidence against him. She declares that when it was found that tfforo was no evidence against her son , the charge was changed. $1,500 , .1 Mecul nnd Wife for Him. Frnnk Larson , the Northwestern fireman living at CM South First street , and who recently married the mother of the 2-yi'ar-old boy whoso life ho saved by crawling out on the pilot of the onglno nnd lifting the sleeping lad from thu track while the train was going at high speed , has not yet received the $1,000 cash prlzo which was awarded him last week In Chicago by the Carnoglo here com mission , llo Is expecting the draft , however , any day. This will make $1,500 cash for Lar- mm , besides the Cnrnuglo hero medal and the young widow , as l iraon'H re ward for the daring net which scut u t'.irlll all over America at thu time. A representative of the Carnoglo hero commission was In Nebraska re cently consulting the engineer who accompanied l > nrson when thu fireman norvlly climbed out on the pilot and risked his own life to save that of the little son of his future wife. The railroad gave Larson $500 nt the time. Won't Make It Union Depot. Local railroad officials do not be- Hove that the movement projected by ono of the state railway commission ers , following the recent hearing In NorfuJk , for convcM'tlng the North- western's uptown station Into n un ion depot , will over coino to pass. The plan Is said never to have been submitted to them. On top of that , It Is declared by those who ought to know , that such a plan would not bo ontertnlifed by either M. & O. or Un ion Pacific officials. It Is urged that such a plan la never satisfactory and that It is much muro probable that ' ' .o Union Pacific and M. & O. will build n now station of their own. A now station IH highly probable if Norfolk continues to demand n substitute for tbo old wornout and cramped up station now doing service as It has for a third of a century past , it is claimed. Flying Machine To Be Made Here. A flying machine is to he made in Norfolk. David Smith of Deevore , Garlleld county , Nob. , has Invented a flying machine. He has just received his patent papers , which cost him a good deal of money , from Washington and has placed the plans and maps of his flying machine in the hands of William Ahlman , of Norfolk , with money and orders to start work In building his first machine. Mr. Smith , who has been working on his Invention for over four years , Is very enthusiastic over receiving his patent papers , and he believes his machine will be a successful flyer when completed. Bird-like In build nnd movement , \ the plans of the machine look very reasonable to Ahlmnn. It Is to be operated like a bicycle , with peddles which keep the wings , which automati cally open and close , moving up and down bird fashion. The stearlng gear rudder , whlcii is controlled by handle bars , also operates the tail which causes the machine to rise and fall. The ir/ichjlne Is Istarted from a stand , the operator starts peddling and a switch causes the wings to tilt , giving them the forward drive. The wings will bo made of the best canvass , or possibly china silk coated with rubber , and tbo frame of the lightest steel tubing making a net weight of less than thirty pounds. The sprocket wheel , chain and peddles do the entire work of keeping the wings going up nnd flown , while the handle bar does the guiding of the machine nnd also controls the tall. Mr. Smith-for a Jong time has tried to Invent a flying machine which could be operated like a bicycle , using his own words"somethlng a man can take and fly Into town with. " Mr. Smith believes the machine will bo u success , and has every assurance of its being able to attain any alti tude. tude.Mr. Mr. Ahlman , who gets the contract to build the flying machine , says ho believes It will bo a success and work will begin on It Immediately. Much special material will have to bo sent for" and It will take nt least three months before a trial trip can bo made. My Kingdom for a Quart of Milk. A town right In the heart of the greatest dairy region on earth and Norfolk Is using condensed milk be cause It can't get ordinary milk. Norfolk housewives are fairly cryIng - Ing for milkman's milk and yet their salty tears bring no response. There's a great , big opportunity right in this town today , It Is pointed out , for a dairyman. The Commercial club Is hoping that some dairyman may see the oppor tunity and move to Norfolk to supply household wants and to make n bunch of money for himself. A very large portion of the city of Norfolk cannot today get real milk and cream for love or money. It Is an actual fact that condensed milk is being used by n very largo number of households , because they can't find anybody who will deliver milk to them. Is Is one of the big problems Norfolk housewives are trying to solve and without success. When Wlllems Brothers discontin ued their dairy business a few days ago to supply only the wholesale trade and make Ice cream , hundreds of homes were left In a quandary. Otto Zuelow operates a mljk route of small proportions , but Is not reaching the entire city by any means. The prayers of only a few nro nn- swered by the milkmen , nnd con densed milk business nt the stores has gone up. Where , Oh where , IB there n milkman - man who cnn supply the town of Norfolk with the kind of milk nnd cream that mother used to cook with ? Milkmen in Norfolk In bygone days have all prospered , It Is pointed out.
