would visit Omaha tnia season umu
before and the way they have been arriv
ing the last few days would Indicate that
the earlier predlctiona were correct.
The general market altuatlon la also very
satisfactory. Prlcee are fully aa high aa
they were a week ago, and In fact moat of
the changes that have taken place during
the week under review have been In the
nature of advances. In view of the liberal
demand from all sections of the country
for all classes of staple goods the general
belief Is that strong, active markets will
be experienced for some time to come.
Collections are. If anything. Improving,
wing to the fact that retailers have now
tleaned up their winter Blocks In much
better condition than they thought they
would a short time ago.
Groceries Active aad Strong.
Local jobber, experienced an active de
kiand all last week for staple lines and In
fact trade was unusually large for this
Ume of year. The most of the changes that
took place In market quotatlona 'were ad-
Sancea, but still there were no very sensa
onal fluctuations of any kind. Sugar Is
selling In Just about the same notches It
waa a week ago. both raw and refined
grades being unchanged. There Is. how
ever, a steady improvement In the demand.
Both steal and Manilla rope advanced
suite sharply last week, owing to the high
prices ruling on the raw fibre. Cheese is
also higher than It waa at last report, be
cause of the light aupply and heavy con
umptlon. The advance amounts to about
Ko and present indications are favorable
tor Btlll higher prices In the near future.
In dried fruits, peaches head the list. All

-T2rU.eno.,Ue."lrabVe .rade." a now
aid to be very scarce, while fancy stocks
are out of the market.
Canned goods are in Just about the same
position they were a week ago, but still
there Is a very firm feeling all along the
Una ' and particularly is that true of to
matoes, peas and corn. It would cause no
surprise If higher prlcea should rule long
before the new pack comes on the market.
Brans, owing to the light receipts now
somlng forward, and also because of the
liberal demand, have advanced about 10c
per bushel during the last ten days.
So far as the tea and coffee markets are
soncerned, thre Is not much to be said, as
prices are Just about the same aa they
were a week ago. There are. of course,
some fluctuating back and forth, but the
market can be quoted neither strong nor
Other staple lines handled by Omaha
houses are about steady for the week, but
from the changea above mentioned it will
be seen that there Is a strong undertons to
the general market.
Advance ia Cottoa Goods.
The feature of the dry goods trade last
week was the strength which developed In
the cotton good, market. An advance In
theprlce o.fraw material caused a change
I!li iin hM in. thaaa" ainda la
V,o and it Is claimed that the products of
the Fall River mills are engaged until Au
gust. All lines of American prints were ad
ranoed Saturday, February 22. c. making
- prices respectively, as follows: Shirtings,
h: blacks and grays, 4Hc; all lines of blues,
l4o. Competing linea of staple prints met
the advance and are now held hie higher
than recent quotations. The low grades oi
bleach gooda are also up Ho nd four-yard
crown goods are strong.
Blankets, wool underwear ana wool areas
goods are also higher than they were last I
season and preparations for fall arebelng;
eenducted on a verv laree scale. Omaha
Jobbers In particular say that they will
start out after fall orders earlier and
harder than ever before. The Improved
condition of trade during the week Just
fast has given them even more confidence
k future business than they had before
and they are all looking for an active mar
get from this time on. House trade was
active all the week and the men on th,
road also did a good deal of business. In
tact. It may be said that sales of all de
sirable lines of spring goods have been
large jnd many lines of wash goods, not
ably 'ginghams of both staple and fancy
lines, are scarce.
Sprlaa Trade More Active.
' Hardware Jobbers also report spring busi
ness for last week as showing considerable
Imnrovement over tha nrevloua week.
Drders for all kinds of spring lines are now I
coming in quite freely, but, of course, I
srders are not as numeroua as they will I
be In a short time if the weather remains
ftilld. Everybody posted on the general
situation seems to be predicting a very
Successful spring trade with both whole
Balers and retailers and as a result very
few complaint, are heard.
The market has shown practically no
Changs during the laat several daya that Is
worthy of mention. All lines are In a
food, strong position and present indica.
Ions are that they will remain that way
for soma time to come. Omaha Jobber,
claim to have good reaaons for their be.
Ilefs on that point, as they are experiencing
a good deal of trouble In getting gooda
from the manufacturers. On an average
mills are Just about three months behind
with their work, so that Jobbers order
about five months before they want the
goods. In that way they manage to keep
good stocks on hand. The shortage la not
confined to any one line, but appllea to
? radically all kinds of staple goods. St rue
ural ateel mills are not accepting orders
for delivery In leas than eight months, as
ior Quiivtrj in im inun iiini munmi, u
until that time. Other kinds of iron and
steel mills ar. equally well supplied with
orders so there doea r.:t seem to be much
chance of a droy In prices owing to a lack

Leather goods Jobbers are still busy get
ting out their advance orders for spring.
The bulk of them are, of course, filled, but
swing to th. large number jobbers had on
hand at the opening of th. season it has
taken considerable time to get them all
out. Quite a few buyers are now coming
on the market and as a general thing they
have a gooa wora to say regaral

The rubber goods trade la more brisk
than It has been fur some little time. The
warmer weather lias put th. country roads
In bad condition and consequently rubber
boots, as well as .and a la, have been mov
ing freely th. laat week. Traveling men
ar. alao picking up a good many orders for
fall and are more encouraged regarding the
.outlook for tall and winter bust liens than
they were a few. weeks ago.
Fralts aad I'redaee.
There was not a very heavy demand last
week for fruits and vegetable, although
there waa mure lite to the trade than dur
ing the extremely cold weather. Jobbers
are now looking forward to the time when
the weather will be more mild, so that re
tailers can dlsnlay their aooda and attract
buyers in that way. There wer. very few
changes tn prices last week that are worthy
of mention. A few such Hues as cucumbers,
cauliflowers and tomatoes ar. a little lower,
but th. mure staple lines, such aa potatoes,
beets and turnips, are unchanged.
In fruits th. only chang. of Importance
Is an advance In apples. The prices at
which the different lines are selling will b.
found in another column.
The egg market attracted considerable
attention last week bM-ause of the scarcity
and consequent high prices. On soma days
the market was up to SO cents and oc
casionally it went even higher than that.
Toward the rloaa of the week, however, re
ceipts were more liberal and prices took a
tumble. With continued warm weather
commission men look for liberal receipts,
which, of course, means a declining mar
ket. Th. poultry market held up In fairly good
shape sll the week, even though consump
tion is usually somewhat reduced during
Lent. Bultvr was very scarce and as will
be seen from th. prices quoted th. market
There wa, a marked ahortag. In oysters
and th. Inst of the week bulk Standards
advanced to $1.60. It wtll be remembered
that they were $1. and previous to the
S resent shortage they were tl 26. Local
ealers are unable to ret enough atock to

euently are rutting all their customers

U n.rk,t n iuddIv for the week, how-
ever, has been fairly liberal, as will be seen
from thi tahla nf recelDta above. The sup
ply was not aa large, though, as it was
the week before, but as compared with the
corresponding week of last year there is
a gooa substantial Increase. The demand
on the part of packera waa in good shape
all the week and consequently the general
tendency of prices was upward.
A good proportion of the offerings this
week consisted of beef steers, but, tha
same as haa been the case for some time
piist, the quality was nothing extra. There
were comparatively few cattle offered that
were gooa enougn to sen aa nign as o.vu,
while a finished buncn ougm 10 onng
around $6.50. The bulk of the cattle sell
from $4.90 to $5.76. The market as a whole

BEAUTIES IN DUBLIN CASTLE

DUBLIN; Feb 22,-New York World C
blegram Special Telegram.) Dublin castle,
so interwoven with tradition, ha, never
been more brilliant than on the occasion of
tha ft rat d-awlngroom, February 7, with
which Lord Lieutenant and Lady Cadogan
opened tha season. Tha vicereine, who I,
a woman of splendid dl, Unction and great
popularity, made a fitting ceatral figure for
such a court. Standing by the side of her
husband In front of the throne In the old
throne room, as custom prescribes, she was
strikingly picturesque. Her truly royal
gown of white oriental satin was veiled
with "liver tiasue. embroidered with huge
black velvet lilies and silver roses. Over
this was a covering of black chantllly net,
through which the shimmering satin and
sliver shone with marvelous effect. Dia
mond ornaments lent tha last perfeot touch.
Hitherto tha lord lieutenant ha, saluted
tha cheek of each debutant, aa she wa, pre
sented. This waa one of the royal preroga
tives. But King Edward's request has mod
ified tha greeting to a handshake and the
beauties who passed In review were for tha
first tlm, spared a blushing consent.
The Irish court Is renowned for Ht
beauties and there waa an unusually large
number of charming debutantes this year.
The fact that the Irish drawlngroom Is
held in the evening makes It an affair or
much greater enjoyment than the mora
formal afternoon state reception.

(Continued from Thirteenth Tag..)
to the Orpheum bill last week by Katherlns
Bloodgood that redeem vaudeville In these
days for the intelligent theater-goers by
lifting It out of th, common and Insipid.
With her rich and powerful contralto. voice
Mr,. Bloodgood ha, the tone and quality
that make, .her singing appeal to every
true music lover. The .cant taste of her
art afforded Omaha people in 1898.' when
she participated In one of th. delightful
musical program, for which the exposition
period will always be memorable In our
music circles, had left recollection, holding
out promise of rare enjoyment from her
return, which were not a bit disappointed.
Her experience on the concert stage has
given her that forceful presence, which,
added to attractive personal charm, and
tasteful costuming, mad. her appearance
the natural climax of the performaace. Th.
real musical artist 1. disclosed a, much in
the (election of th. songs as In the rendi
tion. Mr,. Bloodgood sang during her week
In Omaha Hosanna, Genevieve, Star of My
Life, the Low-Backed Car and several oth
ers. The peculiar fitness of each piece to
her vole, and range showed the scope of
her power and th, versatility of her talent.
We do not believe a woman with such a
voice will stay long In vaudeville, although
this Is Mrs. Bloodgood'. second season. It
she cling, to a professional career much
more substantial victories are before her.
The meeting of Katherlns Bloodgood and
Bandmaster Innes the early part of the
w.ek developed the fact that Inne. had
mad. th. first contract to bring Mrs. Blood
good out in concert. That waa several
year, ago when Mrs. Bloodgood, who bad
Just transplanted herself from California to
New York, allowed Innes, through mutual
friends, to persuade her to sing for blm.
H. engaged her on th. spot. The next day,
however, she came to the conclusion that
she waa not yet ready to go out in concert
and prevailed on him to release hor. Th.
Incident was recalled by both when they
A paper has been received from Mrs. R.
C. Hill, of Missouri Valley, president of
the Treble Clef club, which is a very in
teresting . organization over there, and
which presents programs from the work, of
various composers, including sketch of
their live,, etc' Th, program at hand was
given ever to the works of Sir Henry
Smart and Sir Arthur Sullivan.
A word as to Mr. Albert!. Mr. Albertl is
the artist who sang the "Prologue" to
Pagliaccl" last Monday afternoon at the
Innes concert. He has been heard here
many times before in the Scalchl compa
nies and with Innes of late years. Mr. Al
bert! 1. an artist. He has studied himself,
his voice, his theme, and his style most care
fully and the result is that he ha. now, at ma
turity, an absolute ease, self command and
intellectuality of style. He sings as though
be had something to sing about. He is a
rebuke to that stiffness which la, alas, too
often seen in baritones. He Is an incentive
to those baritones who are working out
their musical salvation from day to day and
from hour to hour, with understanding. He
knows how he does things, and he knows
why he does things. Th. singer who doe.
not know these things is not never will be
until h. does an artist I salute the artist
Albertl. May his tribe Increase.
The second of the series of the Lenten
muslcales was given yesterday at the resi
dence of Mr. and Mrs. George Barker, The
attraction was the Chicago soprano, Gen
evieve Clark Wilson. Mr. Wilson sang a
number of songs In her usual charming
manner. She is an artiste from whom much
was expected because she haa great reputa
tion. Her prominence in the musical cir
cles of America warranted the audience In
expecting something; very much above the
average. They were not disappointed. To
a naturally beautiful voice she add. an un
avoidable sweetness of expression and a
poetlo mentality. Mrs. Wilson 1. on. of the
"real" people one meets, and that sincerity
which rings through every Una of her work
Is simply reflective of the reality within.
It Is gteatly to be deplored that there was
not an opportunity to hear her in the even
ing and at a place where many students
could be accommodated. To hear her it an
Inspiration to the student.
Mrs. Wilson sang a long and varied pro
gram. Including Schumann, Saint-Saens,
Brahma and Hen.chel songs, Glordanl, bal
lad, of old Irish and old English and the
late lamented Ethelbert N.vln. Soma num
bers sh. waa compelled to repeat.
Mrs. Andrews, a local organist of modest
personality and tremendous ability and
musicianship, accompanied the linger with
sympathetic skill. v
Mrs. Crofoot played a few Chaminade
numbers most effectively and with her
usual temperznental style. '
A few of us were having a discussion
about , th. general badness of th. English
translations of operas and song th. other

THE HOIt FENIMORE CHATTEITON, Secretary of the Crest Sltt of Wyoming, Ssy ,
In s Hecest Interview, that He Beliee Asolher Fabulosity Rich Copper Mine Haa
"It is not often that one can speak tn such positive words of commendation
aa I can In behalf of the mining clalma owned by "The Black Tiger Copper
Mining Company," said Mr. Chatterton In a recent interview.
-It certainly Is the making in my judgment, of a wonderful mine. Of course,
ne one can look Into th. ground. The mammoth tunnel now being driven Into
th. mountain side will cut the vein before many months, if th. workmen have
ntt,"BhouldCn.ey encounter a rich ore body, as several reputable mining engi
neers predict Ihey will, why, stock in th. 'Black Tiger" would jump In a alnitle
day up to $4.00 or $5 00 per share. Yet this same stock at this time, while the
company Is yet In Us 'swaddling clothes,' ma to apeak, can be had for only 7
centa per Bhare. Think of it. supposing a man should inveet $70 w today, that
would pay for 1.000 shares, then If this stock goes up to $5.u0 a share, th. I,0u0
Bhares that cost only $70.00 would be worth $5,0uu. That's a chance worthy of
anyone taking a 'flyer.' " ,

been quietly leaning over the rati at the
rear of th, hous. explaining to Mr. George
Kearney the difference between the vibrato
and tremolo, suddenly seised hie hat, camp'
over to where the little coterie of musicians
and newspaper men were standing, and ear
nestly whispered, pointing at the same time
to the stage, "Say, I. that man roasting us,
nowT On the dead, is he? I don't know
that language." On being assured that he
was simply Imagining himself In a bull
fight scene in Spain the msnager resumed
bis quiet study of the artist. Of course
had it been a South Omaha bull fight the
song would have been a lullaby.
A young lady who ha. evidently studied
some voice culture ask. for information
about the register, of the voice. Bh
1. a very talented young lady, who llvei
