Tlio Jolnl nnnunl meeting of Iowa nml
NehMBka state denial societies began In
the city yesterday afternoon and will con
tinue In session for four days.
Tlio Iowa association lield a short busi
ness meeting In Council lIltirfM In the fore
noon , but tlio Nebraska members did not
get toRotber. Tlio meeting was called to
order In the lodge room In tlio Darker block
nt 2 o'clock by President T. R Skcede of
Seward , wlm Introduced President T. L.
James of Kalrflold , la. , and lie took charge
of the arranged program.
Mayor Ilemls was Introduced and wel
comed the visitors. Ho said that ho con-
Hlilercd It an honor to welcome so many
distinguished looking people , but as he had
always felt timid about going before ono
dentist he foil some hesitancy about facing
n collide of hundred of them. He hoped
that all would make themselves porfeiftly at
home , and If they did not see what they
wanted they Hliould ask for It. He thought
that the advancement made In dentistry
hud been marvelous , and was pleased to note
that this country was far ahead of the other
nations In this science. Ho briefly reviewed
the history of dentistry and the manufac
ture of false teeth , Instruments , chairs , and
other appliances used In this profession. He
had met with some of the most noted den
tists In the country , and was greatly In
terested In the advancement of their work.
Ho would HUe to bo able to predict the
strides they would make in the next Ilfty
years , and felt a desire to explore Saturn ,
Mars , Jupiter and other celestial planets and
learn how they managed to pull the aching
molars. Ho was somewhat undecided
whether to class the dentists as gold bugs
or Comnionwcalcrs. He reviewed the growth
of the city and told the visitors all about
the vast commercial , financial , manufactur
ing and social resources at the command of
Omaha residents.Ve have no Htibbards
nnd Jacksons In this state , " said Mayor
Ilemls , "but we do havn our Judge Scott
nnd Frank Crane. " This called forth a
vigorous round of applause.
The mayor spoke of Kelly's army and the
late "unpleasantness" In western Iowa and
said that It was the railway officials who
would not let the Commonweal army stop
In Omaha and the only thing that could bo
ilono was to feed the men and let them go
on their way rejoicing. The people of Coun
cil muffs and Iowa were all right , but they
had been made vjctlms of by the railway
attorneys and the governor and would have
a largo sum taxed up against them for the
acts of these parties , who appeared to have
acted from wholly selfish principles. His
cordial welcome greatly pleated the dentists.
Ills remarks were responded to by Dr. J.
T. Abbott of Manchester , la.
UK. AlIBOTT'S RESPONSE.
The doctor had been hero before and had
enjoyed Omaha's hospitality. lie hoped that
Omaha would treat the dentists as well as
It did the Commonwealcrs , feed them and
pass them on their way rejoicing after they
v ere , through with their business In this city.
Ho complimented the city and Its mayor
and expressed the kindliest feeling for the
people of the enterprising western metrop
olis. Dr. Abbott said that ho would relate
a bit of imprinted * history as to the v/ay In
which this city was named. Ho said : "A
good many years ago a man and his family
landed on the eastern banks of the Missouri
river. The man came across in a. boat and
began to blaze away out Into the pralrlo
country. His wife arid son were later ferried
over nnd with ( ho woman driving an ox
team they took up their western Journey.
The boy was walking behind. They had
reached about the spot where the corner of
Ninth and Farnam streets now is when the
boy noticed that his mother was getting out
of the trail. Ho shouted : 'Oh , ma , haw. ' "
Ho said thai when anything was to be
used as a comparison Omaha must always
be favorably excepted , and that they must
nvold making the mistake which a servant
did who had been Instructed by his master
to always except him In everything. .The
servant had an experience with a skunk ,
and In relating it to his master the man
said : "Massa , 1'se dun met de stlnkenest
ting In do world except yu'solf. "
Ho said that Omaha would grow to be a
greater city than It Is because It had the
right kind of men for citizens. They were
full of push and energy. He thought that
the streets of this city were better paved
than those of any other western city , and
the city had the handsomest men , prettiest
women nnd girls , and the fattest and best
naturcd babies In the world , except those of
Iowa , Dr. Abbott then detailed the work
of dental colleges and the advancement and
use of scientific principles In his profession.
On motion of Dr. Kulp , visiting dentists ,
physicians , scientists and others Interested
In dentistry were Invited to a'tend the meet
ings of the association and take part In the
PRESIDENT JAMES' ADDRESS.
Tr. ) T. L. James , president of the Iowa
association , then delivered his annual ad
After the opening remarks the president
rcfcried to the painful method of Jerking out
n tooth In the olden Union. IIo hud a mu-
chlno which looked like a cross bctwcn a
Jack screw and a hand vice , and said : "I
liad my ilrst experience In tooth pulling with
this. It may not look well , but It Is dead
euro In Its work. Just a twist of the wrist ,
a yank on the crank and tlio jerker got 25
cents from the jorkco , while a jagged liolo In
the Jaw was left to heal up as It would. "
He spoke of tlio Improvement In tools and
appliances , furniture , etc. , nnd a great re
ductlon of pain , which usually attends such
Ho advised that the dentists make a thor
ough study of their profession and not to
hoard their knowledge , but to lot others
know about their discoveries for the benefit
of suffering humanity. Ho advocated betttr
colleges for dentistry ami less criticism in
the profession as to methods of practice. Ho
was pleased with the Interest and attendance
and hoped to soon BCO every reputable dent-
tlst In both sUtcs join their association.
Dr. II. J. Cole of Norfolk , Neb. , delivered
an essay on Schlcr's remedy for treating
the pulp canals with sodium potassium , as
laid before the Columbian dental congress
held In Chicago last year. The paper and
views of the author brought out a great deal
of ( llHcusUon as , to the best methods for
preventing Inflammation In the pulp canals
nnd the now theory found favor with a
groit many of the members.
The o nvent'cn was not ca led to order
fop the uvenlng session until after 8 o'clock.
"The History nnd Progress of Dantlstry in
Nebraska" were described In a paper pre
pared by W. F. Uosomnn of Fremont. The
Ilrst effort at organization by the dentists
was In 1ST I , when the Missouri Dental so
ciety was formed. Hut there were no regu
lar dentists In the Interior of Nebraska before -
fore the year 1SC9. The Nebraska society
was organized at Lincoln In 1ST ? with six
members. The association Increased to sev
enteen members Insldo of two years , but In
18SO the Interest became greater and the
membership began to grow , until In 1893
It had become a flourishing body of men ,
who Bought to advance their Interests on
vclentlflo principles. The author of the
made the prediction that the No-
Eapcr society would bo the strongest In
thu country In a few years.
IS AGAINST ANAESTHETICS.
Ji A. Dloltonbacher of York , Neb. , read a
paper on anaesthetics local and general.
IIo expressed his opposition to the administra
tion of anaesthetics not combined with oxy
gen , In the belief that they were dangerous
and llkoly to result In death. Ho had tried
nnd stood ready to recommend Dr. Hayes *
nornted hypnotic process for using anaes
thetics as being a enfo manner In which to
Administer gas to deaden the pain following
UUeased teeth. Thin paper coined quite a
spirited discussion , and the majority of those
who spoke on the subject expressed their
opposition to the use of gas or anything else
In dental work. Dr. Hunt of Iowa City
ipoka In forcible opposition to the use of
gas In any shape , and said that the mUstcn
ft dentlHtB should bo to educate the people
how to save and protect their teeth , and not
to pull them cut on the slightest provocation.
Pulling teeth should bo the last resort , Mr.
Hunt thought. Dr. Funck of Hcatrlcc agreed
with the speaker , and wished there wan no
such thing as gas used In dentists' offices.
Dr. Gillette of Norfolk thought that the use
of anaesthetics approached too close to pro
ducing death , nnd that dentists who used
them with fatal results should bo held liable
by the law. The general opinion seemed
to bo that If one dentist or all the
other dentists In a town would quit using
gas , the remaining ono would. None of
them thought It a safe proceeding , but the
people hod been humbugged up to n certain
standard and It was hard to educate them
differently. It was thought that dentistry
had been so advanced through the aid of
scientific appliances that thinking people
would soon ccaso to a k for gas to alleviate
their pains. Another point made against
the use of gas was the uvlls of after effects
upon the persons who used It. These results
were often surprising and even alarming In
their extent and many people seemed to
suffer a permanent change In their modes
nnd habits after having been completely
under the Influence of an anaesthetic. Then
again , 99 per cent of the deaths while under
the influence of powerful narcotics occurred
In persons who had safely used them pre
viously and were In apparently n healthy

Omaha Elks Produced a Paralysis that Prj

Shades of Christie , Luke Schuolcraft , Emcr-

would have been could they have cat In front
during the Elk minstrels first part last night
nt Boyd's ! It was an old time Havcrly
minstrel night , with swells In the boxes ,
the leaders of social light and life In the
stalls , and a thoroughly metropolitan audi
ence crowding the theater as far back In
the top gallery aa there were scats.
The trouble began promptly at 8:15 : with
half a hundred Elks In black faces perched
In pyramidal style , the last tier coming In
contact with n magnificent specimen of the
animal from which the order takes Its name ,
standing majestically , almost touching the
border lights , while round and about his
Elkshlp were palms nnd other topical plants ,
a beautiful floral emblem with the letters
"B. P. O. E. " being suspended from the
third border. John Hyler Is Included
In the list of thank offerings , which
universally concludes Elk benefits and Press
club entertainments , us having captured his
elklets In a stscl trap In the wilds of Oregon ,
but visitors to Burlington headquarters will
recall It has done service In the large hall
of the building for years , principally as a
hat rack and on object lesson to tenderfoot
who expect to IIml blbon roaming about the
streets of Omaha.
This only by way of an Introduction.
But the minstrels of the past were not
the only mummers who would have been
surprised could they have watched the birth
of genius last night. "Sweet Will" of Avon
fame , and his contemporaries , to say noth
ing of the semi-moderns , would have mar
velled much at the heaviest tragedian on
the stage , J. Edgar Owens , appearing ns the
middle man of a black face show , and he
didn't do anything but give cards and spades
to the best Interlocutor In the business.
And to his large stage experience Is duo
much of the success of the entertainment ,
which had the rare merit of being largely
original and the additional delight of lots
of snap and vigor.
The first part , which was largely made up
of local hits , also contained a number of
right clever parodies on popular songs , sung
by well known local artists , the lilt of the
evening being "He Stole Doc Haynes" Dog , "
a tearful ballad after the style of "Johnny
Dugan , " sung with delicious humor by Judge
Shields , Ed Mullen and Frank Flannegan.
The men on the ends of the line are well
known In business and professional circles ,
but from last night a larger clientele will
tell In enthusiastic manner of the debut
made by II. R. Vondecar , Ed Mullen , M. J.
Dowllng , George Cronk , Frank Flannegan
and Judge Shields as runny men of the Elk
minstrels , Vandecar showing undisputed
talent as n comedian , his singing and dancing
being a feature of the seance.
The music was highly satisfactory , HIP
Bedouin and Elk quartets being compelled
to icapond to encores.
In point of fact , It was n thoroughly good
humored audience , and encores were so nu
merous that a stop had to be made to their
acknowledgement when It was ascertained
that the biggest local huccess ever achieved
was In progress.
Part two was n potpourri ot professional
and amateur numbers , the LaRose brothers
appearing In an acrobatic act which met
with Instant favor , the tumblers having
to respond to a double recall.
John Green and Ache Smith , assisted
by the Silver Tone quartet , gave a genuine
southern flavor of the program , their work
being spirited to a degree. "The plantation
holiday , " without which no negro minstrel
performance would be successful , called forth
several of the brethren In varl-colored cos
tumes , "Mamie , Come Kiss Your Honey Boy"
being sufficiently snappy to bring out all
the talent of the participants , Patsy McGrath
of South Omaha giving an example of artis
tic wing dancing that would have donu
credit to n professional.
Assistant City Ticket Agent Dcnnlson of
the Union Pacific , with an assurance ac
quired only through long association by send
ing unthinking trnvalers to New York by way
of Galveston and the Sunset route , appeared
as Prof. Her man In a startling expose of
the cabinet mystery , assisted by Clinton
Franklin as Queen Lallakooler , the eminent
Incidental to the negro part of the per
formance , Messrs. Jules Lumbard , Jo Bar
ton , A. O. Potter , W. S. Marshall , W. S.
McCune song very acceptably , Mr. McCuno's
song , "Calm ns the Night , " making an un
qualified hit. The performance closed with a
howllngly funny burlesque , entitled , "Order
of Howling Swells , " In which many of the
members appeared In thinking parts.
Congressman D. II. Mercer telegraphed
from Washington to Exhaltcd Ruler Flan- '
negan as follows : "Accept congratulations
on successful benefit. Jokes are excellent ;
can hear them here. "
There were flowers in profusion and any
amount of perspiration , to say nothing of
"buck fever" experienced by the audience ,
but the performance ended without any
tragedies , except that Doc Haynes came
near losing his dog in the crush , which
would have been a paradox truly.
Representative Elks were present fror
Kansas City , Sioux City and other near-u ,
towns , the city by the Kaw sending a half
dozen delegates to felicitate with the Omaha
brethren upon the complete triumph.
To the Thurston Rifles , the Orchard &
Wllhelm Carpet company nnd tn Shlvcrlck

courtesies extended , and to the public for
having berne their grief bo uncomplainingly.

tidal allowances , and making all the neces

her true average speed was 18.14 knots. As
her contract speed was 17 knots , she earned
for her builders a bdiius of J125.000 , being
$23,000 for each- quarter knot above 17. The
average revolutions on this trip were 17C

Another ( 'use of Smallpox.
Health Commissioner Savllle made a per
sonal examination of the case of Christine
Chladek , the latest addition to the number
of smallpox patients yesterday. IIo found
that the disease was unquestionably small
pox , but the sympjoms Indicate the less
serious form of the disease. The woman
was at once transferred to n tent on the
poor farm and n female friend of the patient
who has had the disease was taken along
as nurse. The report of an additional case
had the effect of causing several persons to
visit the health department yesterday to bo

that she often siw Dr. Girth , the voterl-ary
surgeon , visit Mrs. Irvine when she was liv

mnilo by one O. M. Dulllold , who alleges
that ho worked for It vine when ho nnd
his wife lived In this city In 1STO , and that
he saw Montgomery nnd Mrs. Irvlno to

STOLEN MONEY ORDERS.
TnUcn from the United Stairs KxprcHH Com
pany's Olllroat YVustnn , la.
Yesterday Mr. S. A. Huntoon , local
agent of the United States Express company ,
called at detective headquarters and reported
the loss of eighteen express company money
orders. These the agent says were stolen
from the Weston , la. , express office a few
nights ago. The numbers of some of the
stolen orders follow : 717,408 , 717,109 , 794-
470 , 717,471. 717.172. 717.473. 717.471 , 717,475 ,
717,470 , 710,477 , 717,478 , 717.199. Already
some of thcso orders have been cashed In
Omaha and this led to the supposition that
the thief was In the city. The maximum
value of each order Is $50 , but most of those
cashed in this city were for less amounts.
Agent Huntoon suspected n certain person
In the city of being the thief , and of having
some of the stolen orders In his possession.
A search warrant was Issued by the police
Judge and was given to Chief Detective
Haze to serve. This officer was accom
panied by Detectives Savage and Dempsey
and Mr. Huntoon. They kept the locality of
their search a profound secret. In the
course of an hour or two they returned and
reported having found nothing , so It Is biip-
posed that they are on the wrong trail. The
numbers of the orders still missing huvu
been bulletined at all of the express offices
In this section of the country nnd should
they be presented for payment the holder
will promptly bo arrested. If each order
had been made out and passed for the full
amount the express company would lose
about $1,000 , but fortunately the officials
caught on to the little game before It had
gone very far and will lose very little cash
Local detectives and officers of the express
company have an Idea that the thlof Is stop
ping In the city at the present tlmo and sev
eral parties ore under surveillance with good
chances of running the right man to cover.
