Omaha was not us much of a city as It Is at
the present tlino.
As early" as 1805 the younf ? Germans of the
city conceived the Idea of organizing a Turn-
vcrcln , nnd at once prepared for the work.
The next spring the goutloraen above men
tioned completed the organization and held ,
tbclr meetings In a hall In the old Caldwell
block , on Douglus street , botwrcn Thirteenth
and Fourteenth. The organization prospered
until It hnd nearly ono hundred members.
The hnll became too crowded , nnd In
n few weeks the lot on Tenth
sticot was bought for $1,200 nnd the Gorman
theater built at n cost of $9,000. It was a
line building , ono of the best la the city at
that time , and the members felt very proud
of this property. Tills was the lint Tumor
society wester Chicago , nnd besides having
their friendly class contests for prizes , pleas
ant dancing parties were hold In the build
ing , with nu occasional Sunday night thea
Louis Anderson was olcctud the first
speaker of the society , and for a year the
members were as happy us children of ono
family , but In 1807 there was an election of
ofllcors. Anderson wanted to bo ro-olcctcd ,
but met with considerable ) opposition ; so
much that no loft the society and nt once sot
about to organize the Concordia Sinning
Boclotv. AH of the young Germans were
very fond of muslo and went with him. This
cost the Turnvorcln a great many members ;
in fact , so many that it was difficult to secure
n quorum. A meeting was held , nnd to
bridge over the dilUculty a resolution was
adopted by whicb seven members constituted
n quorum. The following Sunday Charles

members , but as only six could bo secured ,

Prior to tbls nnd nt the time of building
the hall , tUo society Incurred a debt of $3,000.
Stock to this amount , in shares of $10 each ,
was Issued to the members ana the money for
the same paid Into the treasury but for some
reason never appeared to the cancellation of
After tlio society was abandoned John
Brandt managed to secure most of the stock ,
paying n trilling sum for the same. This
action disgusted the members and they let
A everything go by default. The taxes on the
property becnmo delinquent , nnd In 1S70
Brandt took a tax deed under which ho holds
the lot at the present tlmo.
Two j ears later the Turnveroln was re
vived , now blood was infused Into the organ
Izatlon , and since then It has prospered Junti
siow it has 1M ! active members ana the vulua

Last July the general mooting of the Turn-
bund was held in Now York city , nnd Phil
Andres of the Nebraska bund attended as a

that the state bunds hold delegate conven

but the trouble among tno reds In South
