SOUTH OMAHA NEWS.
The stock yards company let a contract
yesterday for n cattle viaduct over the
tracks from the main alley on the north to
connect with the Armour runway on the
south. This viaduct will bo 700 feet In
length and the span across the tracks will
bo 141 feet long. C. 13. H. Campbell of
Council Bluffs will build the structure ,
which Is to cost In the neighborhood of $10-
000. This bridge is to bo of unusual
strength , Its capacity being 300 pounds to
the square foot. A floor of vitrified brick
will bo laid nnd the entire viaduct will bo
under roof. The viaduct will start west
of the hog sheds In the yards nnd will con
nect with the present Armour viaduct. All
of the hogs for the Omaha Packing com
pany's plant will bo handled over this new
bridge. Contractor Campbell will commence
work at once and will complete the bridge
within n few weeks.
The covered bog alloy , which extends from
the stock yards to the Cudahy plant , Is
being pnvod with brick.
Material has been purchased by the stock
yards company for an underground runway
to connect with the Hammond and Swift
runways. When this new runway Is com
pleted all of the packers will bo connected
directly with the Texas division of the
yards. This new runway will go under the
tracks , the superstructure being supported
The graders employed on the excavations
at Armour's completed the cellar for the
new cooler building last night. Over 1,000
piles will bo driven for n foundation for this
building , and it Is expected that this work
will commence today. This building will be
a nine-story structure. 150x155 feet , and will
bo completed by November 1. The water
main which was laid some time ago across
the land to bo occupied by this new building
was taken up yesterday and workmen are
now engaged In digging a trench for the
pipe , which will skirt the edge of the build'
Ing on the north , east and south. Concrete
foundations for the glue factory at Armour's
were laid yesterday. This building will form
an L about the fertilizer building , which Is
now under roof. Owing to the additions to
the Armour plant , the fire hydrants which
were located sorno tlmo ago will have to be
changed , and it is stated that a number of
new hydrants will bo located. About CEO
mon are still employed on the construction
force , nnd more will bo added as soon as
the two now buildings now under way are
ready for the brick work. With the com
pletion of the grading for the cooler build
ing the graders will go back to work at the
west end of the site , where an Immense
amount of dirt Is to be removed in order
.to mnko room for car shops , an electric light
plant and ono or two other buildings. The
work of grading for these buildings was
stopped when it was decided to enlarge the
cooler , In order that the entire force might
work on the cellars of the new structure.
Work on the cottages on Q street Is pro
gressing as rapidly as could be expected and
they , will bo ready for occupancy in a month.
K Ofllcer Wnittcd.
A short tlmo ago P. J. Barrett , president
of the city council , was offered the posi
tion of disbursing officer for the now fed
eral building here , but up to the present
time ho has neglected to qualify nnd It is
more than probable that another man will
bo appointed in a few days. It will be
necessary for the person who accepts this
Job to put up a bond of $20,000. The amount
to be disbursed Is in the neighborhood of
$80,000. as ono estimate has been allowed
and $15.000 out of the original appropria
tion of $100,000 was paid for the site. The
new building is progressing as rapidly as
could bo expected , the walls being up to a

Or inline lloiulH Arc Due.
The first Installment on the Twenty-fifth
nnd Twenty-sixth streets grading bonds is
now due. These streets were graded last
fall nnd the special tax , which amounts to
about $5 a lot , will be receipted for by the
city treasurer as fast as paid. The first
payment on the Missouri avenue sewer
bonds Is also due and all property owners
are expected to meet the payment promptly.
The same might be said of the Twenty-
flfth street sewer bonds. This sewer was
laid In the alley between Twenty-fourth
and Twenty-fifth streets from D to H street
and bonds sold to meet the expense. As all
of these obligations are district bonds the
property owners are expected to pay their
proportion without any special notice.

White was standing talking to W. n. Pat

and both rolled In the gutler after clinch

worth the latter was chewing away at the

DELIVERS A MOST INTERESTING ADDRESS

Dubuque Dally Times.
The closing session of the Dubuque Sum
mer school ou Friday morning was ouo of
the most Interesting of all the Interesting
and Instructive cessions of the untlru scries ,
and this may bo truly sold without In the
least detracting from anything that had
taken place before. The special attraction
of the hour \vns an address delivered at
the request of friends and educators by
I'rof. William P. Stewart of New York City ,
who had coino to' Dubuque on business of
an entirely different nature n day or two
previous. This matter of addressing pub
lic assemblages , however , was no now thing
to him , as during the last twenty-five years
ho had frequently appeared before appre
ciative audiences in various parts of the
uorld , speaking on a variety of subjects
as the occasion demanded. At this time , on
account of the literary tastes of his hear
ers , most of whom were teachers from the
public schools of lown and other slates of
the northwest , ho took as his subject "De
cadence of Sentiment , " which In Itself was
enough to arouse one's poetic thoughts , If
ho had nny. From his opening sentence to
the last the professor commanded the closest
attention from every listener.
I'rof. Stewart was Introduced by Prof.
Horchem , one of the managers o the Sum
mer school , In a few well chosen remarks ,
expressive of the pleasure they were ex
pecting to derive from his forthcoming ad
dress. Attending the platform the pro
fessor was received by an applause which
showed how well prepared the adtilcnco waste
to enjoy the promised treat. The pro
fessor's manner of delivery was graceful ,
easy and attractive as from the first. Ho
spoke for three-quarters of an hour with
out reference to a single note nnd with a
rapidity , lluency and point that carried the
audience as with the suspension of time.
In fact , one lady teacher remarked to the
reporter that It had made her angry to dis
cover , nil of a sudden , that the professor
had ceased. The effect upon the audience
was so unusual and profound , so lit once
satisfying and yet unsatisfying , that at the
conclusion of his address the professor was
prevailed upon by the almost unanimous re
quest of the teachers and visitors present
to give them another opportunity for the
still larger amplification of the subject
treated by him , and especially that ho would
then favor them with specimen readings
from his own compositions , and with the
reading of a certain poem of his own which
had been referred to by him 111 the circum
stantial treatment of his discourse of the
It Is safe to aver that the professor Is
sure of a delighted audience whenever he
may be called to speak. It is practically
Impossible to render the full address of
the professor , particularly his many quo

"Managers , Teachers nnd Visitors : Night
before last I arrived here on a personal
mission , after three days of the hottest
travel I have , seemingly , ever experienced ,
and I have beeit in wine very hot coun
tries In my time. Yesterday morning I was
captured by the fascinating suggestion that
I should make an Impromptu address before -
fore the summer school of the teachers of
Iowa nnd their visiting coadjutors from
other states. Naturally , I had objections to
suiih a sudden impressment of my speechmaking -
making ability , but those were overruled
by the friends whet yero urging mo to the
step. On consideration of the subject I
should take as 'tho"th 'sis of my discourse
I was told that I Was not to address you
upon the matter of' my own profession , as
that , of course , would mean empty seats ;
nor was I to address you on any of those
general lines of instruction with which you
yourselves have been engaged and with
which your minds might bo supposed to
bo already sufficiently weary , gumming up
this general caution , I concluded that I was
not to talk to yon upon the subject with
which I was most 'familiar , nor upon any
subject of which you might be supposed
to have a familiar understanding.
( Laughter. )
"I said I was captured by the fascinating
suggestion of having to make a talk to the
teachers of Iowa , because the opportunity
to see the mind builders of the state that
boasts that It has within Its borders no
Illiterate child would be the realization of
always one of. ray moat gratifying desires
the coming into inspirational touch with
that professional life which I regard as the
most exalted. Surety , If I have ever been
inspired to say aught that would justify
the flattering Introductory , encomium of the
press of Dubuque , it should bo on this occa
sion , when I am confronted by so many
wise heads and pretty faces.
"In an off hand way I said my subject
would bo the 'Decadence of Sentiment. ' I
do not mean you to understand that I be-
llovo there is really a decadence of sentl-
mpnt , but I have taken the title thus un
qualifiedly , because there Is a widespread
and growing popular belief that such Is
the fact ; which belief Is Injuriously react
ing upon Itself , and , if unwarranted. Is a
specloa of mischief which the iruo teacher
would only too gladly counteract. As I view
the case , there Is no real decadence of senti
ment as of humanity , but there Is of some
of Its wonted modes of expression. This
Is especially true of poetry Its hitherto re
garded high priest. You and I know , as
of our own experience , that we now rarely
Indulge In the reading of poetry except as
It Is found as a part of our curriculum of
study. The dally papers are full of jokes
at the expense of the poet. The style of
jocularity at his expense would appear to
rate him with the daft and Incomplete.
For one In the more serious concerns of
life to be charged with the frailty of rhyme-
making Is really to single him out for a
sort of amazement. If not for a lessening
of regard. For the woman to wrlto poetry
Is simply to manifest the otherwise charmIng -
Ing and condonable weaknesses of her sex.
In this respect It is not the MekyU' side
of your nature that you are to conceal , but
that of the 'Mr. Hyde. '
"It is felt by the better minds thot this
passing away of the old time reverence for
poetry Is to bo lamented , nnd that It should
be organized against through the schoo s
and a revivification of the bard and his
songs established. Hence , wo have the
present Interest In the poets nnd their
poetry manifested by the teachers gener
ally throughout the English-speaking world.
As you know there Is in this a definitely
concerted action nnd by ita means the hope-
and expectation of restoring to the world.
In Its present growing generation , its old
tlmo veneration for things spiritual and
sacred. But if poetry , considered as pentl-
mcnt , is decadent as of nature and humanity ,
or decadent as of the more complex re
lations into which life Is socially develop
ing , must we not ask , 'Is the revitalizing
of poetry ns heretofore constructed to be
the cure ? ' The up-coming generation must
see things from the standpoint of ourselves.
bo literal , notwithstanding
AB wo have thus grown to
withstanding our own training as of decades
of old tlmo sentiment
ago and In the very lap
ment , will not the new generations , nnd
still the newer , grow up to bo still the more
literal , and the more averse to rhymes as
having still the more literal conclusions ot
life to govern them ? Hut If sentiment is
not decadent , and if it Is poetry alone , con
sidered ns one of Its modes of expression ,
merely , then the problem what confronts
the teacher Is this : Whether poetry is de
cadent ns to Its own nature , or ot the crudi
ties nnd defects that timely understanding
may eliminate ?
" \Vo might ask In the first place If po
etry had any right to the assumption of
high priest , or , In Its present garb , to any
near priest hood to sentiment. As optimists ,
we' should have to conclude , not that our
common nature was growing less ethereal
or sublimated , but that poetry was becom
ing obsolete , that we were outgrowing It
nnd that In itself It was no longer sufficiently
remunerative for the effort iiml attention it

of making things easy , smooth and simple.
Poetry , as a vernacular , is In nothing an
Improvement on prose , and unless it be the
special function of some special sense It
Is certain to bo pushed to the wall by the
fairer charms of Its younger sister prose.
"The great pool of the past was regarded
as a great oracle one of the especially In
spired , but with our lleral mind of today
we fall to see wherein the claim is to bo
sustained. If It is a story told by the poet
we find the story as told by the modern nov
elist far more Interesting and dramatic.
If It Is an effort of pure Imagining the Ideal
ist in proEo Is found to be more under
standable and believable. There Is for po
etry swing nnd rhyme alone , nnd this Is so
easily to be mistaken for the essence of the
poetic as to be its bane , and perhaps the
true reason for the present discredit Into
which the whole art Is fallen. As for
rhyme , no phase of It can equal the possi
bilities of prose. But I am not hero today
tb condemn poetry any more than I am hereto
to confess to the decadence of sentiment.
I am not hero to shatter your Idols and
leave you without the altars upon which
you were wont to lay the tender tribute
of emotion. I am not hero as the icono
clast , ambitious solely to revel In the pride
of his prowess , but ns the builder , who
would but first make way for the more
desirable structure already designed , for I
will show you before I am through that
there Is to bo a new poet and a new poetry ,
in fact a new poetic era , to which the scho
lastic ; mind is Instinctively turning , and of
which the present efforts to revitalize the
poetry of the past la the awakening mani
festations. It is not that sentiment Is deader
or dying , but that It Is alive , and very much
more alive than It has over been before in
the realm of the world's intellect. Think ,
if you can , what a flood of uplifting and
ennobling sentiment poured In upon the gen
eral mind from the stanzas of the poet who
wrote in oI | lamps. In gas Jets and In electric
bulbs. Think of the magnificent odes that
have been sung tn the steel plow and the
sowing machine. Think of the grand eplca
that are found in the railroad engine and
the ocean steamer. Edison Is a dreamer of
the most exalting nnd exalted poetry. Morse
left behind him a deathless volume of song ,
and Field translated it to the uttermost
parts of the world. So like is dreamer and
poet. But in no ono mode and to no one
living , but nlwoys for the ono great pur
pose , the God-intended and the still God-
Inspired the refining and the spiritualizing
"But of the poet of the past and I fear
mo he is very much of the past let us look
In upon him , If you will , and see if we
may what ore the causes of his decline.
That he has declined Is a fact shown by
the records of the publishers. For the last
ten years there have been no now editions
of the poets. There has , of course , been
the stray volume of the stray poet , and
there has been the now and then volume
of the present recognized genius of his class
to whose living personality wo come with
more or less the Instinctive tribute to abil
ity , but of the dead poet there IB but little
ro-urnlng of the ashes.
"I have here a volume of selected poems
supposed to Include the more succinctly In
spired and the moro distinctly best ; and
yet If this were to be regarded as the vol
ume of any one poet and wo were to lay
down those ordinary rules of guidance by
which we should expect to be governed In
dealing with the merits of nny proposition
that was to appeal successfully to the com
mon Judgment , wo should find ourselves se
lecting , again , but the one or two manifestly
the bettor , to bo carried forward to some
still superior collection. Thus wo perceive
that poetry of the past has not made itself
concrete of sentiment as it has been re
vealed in sculpture , painting , architecture ,
In the printing press or in the loom. "
The strength , plot and analysis of the
profcjsor's argumfnt were carried forward
In the relation of an experience ho had bad
with n noted Journalist nnd critic on the
subject of poetry , In consequence of which
n test had been made of the different lead
ing English and American poets which vin
dicated the profesnor's theory the Justice of
which was evidently concurred in by hla
present audience. In the relation of this
experience the professor outlined what
ehould bo regarded as the true standard by
which poetlo excellence should be meas
As a single example of the wonderful
powers of analysla possessed by the pro
fessor , we quote as follows :
"So much for the simple structure nnd
Its requisite , but there Is the standard of
the higher Intellect and of yet the grander
aspiration ; this standard demands the
sweeter scintillations of truth , the moro
picturesque metaphor , the simplicity cf
prose , the logically nnd symmetrically de-
lined continuity of thought , and this from
a natural beginning to a definite ending.
By these lights lets us read one of Long
fellow's best poems. I bring to this task a
spirit of reverence , for of all poets Longfellow -

And resembles sorrow only
As the inlst resembles rain.
"Como read to me some poem ,
Some simple and heartfelt lay ,
That shall soothe this restless feeling ,
And banish the thoughts of day.
"Not from the grand old masters ,
Not from the bards sublime ,
Whoso distant footsteps echo
Through the corridors of time
"For , life strains of martial music ,
Their mighty thought suggest ,
LIfo's endless toll and endeavor ,
And tonight I long for rest.
"Read from some humbler poet ,
Whoso song gushed from Ills heart ,
As showers from the clouds of summer ,
Or tears from the eyelids start ;
"Who through long daya of labor ,
And nights devoid of ease ,
Still heard In soul the music
Of wonderful melodies.
"Such songs have power to quiet
The restless pulse of care ,
And come like the benediction
That follows after prayer.
"Then read from the treasured volume
The poem of thy choice ,
And lend to the rhyma of the poet
The beauty of thy voice.
"And the night shall bo filled with music ,
And the cares , that Infest the day ,
Shall fold their tents , like the Arabs ,
And ns silently steal away.
"In the very first verso the author has
made nn error in physics , and has cm-
ployed a false metaphor. The shadows of
night do not descend ; on the contrary , they
rise. As the rays of light are Intercepted
by the surface of the earth In Ita turning
from the sun , night simply becomes the
absence of those rays , hence It should have
been said 'the shadows of night fly up
ward , ' which of course disposes of the met
aphor of the 'downward' feather ; in it
self not a common occurrence , and In noth
ing significant of night. Then wo have In
the second and third vortes another error ,
both in metaphor and physics. The state
ment is made that ho bos a sadness that
Is not akin to pain , and yet that resem
bles sorrow ns inlst resembles rain. Well ,
mist IB but flno rain ; It certainly Is of the
same nature as rain , and by condensation
becomes rain. Then the thesis of the
poem carries with it a false appeal. It Is
not for a reading , not from the great mas
ters of poetry , but from the obscure and
humble ; and the conditions under which
this humble poet is to give utterance to
his soul are such that aa seen In everyday
life It would bo absurd to oxpcct any such
realization , and especially aa could ever
find successful publicity much less a place
among the treasured volumes of learning.
This poem has a grace and a charm that Is
ot structure , and of the poetlo supposition ,
and yet as measured by the mechanical
rule ot the schools it Is nt fault in nearly
every verse. "
The professor concluded his scholarly and
most Interesting address amidst a storm
of hnndclapplng that Indicated how thor
oughly ho had pleased his audience ,

Competition for passenger traffic has as
sumed such a bitter state In late years and

Central to grant concessions to their com
