rjllgrlmage to Omaha and In a speech at
the Crelghton-Orrheum Thursday chopped
a few chips out of tba present plaa of as
sessment of that order and biased th wsy
for a chsng.
la addition to tba address of tba bead
consul, members of tbs local camps ren
dered a musical and literary program which
was not only enjoyable but was credit
able. Thoae who took, part in this were

T. U Broadburst asd E. G. Rostie; George

Mr. Maguey welcomed tbe bead consul In
an eulogistic talk of tbe work be bad done
for tbe order and be did not fall to throw
a few boquets at what tbe order baa done
for Itself in tbe west.
: Mr. Nortbcott was Introduced br Nelson
C. Pratt and during tbe course of bis re
marks took occasion to ear that Omaha
ia tbe aecond largest renter for Modern
yVoodmen In tbe world and that ia Nebraska
fewer members have' died In proportion to
membership than in any other state.
Tkmr of Hea4 CoaeaL
After speaking of the wonderful growth
Of the order, especially during tbe laat Are
years. Mr. Nortbcott launched Into a dis
cussion as to wbr tbe present plan of as
sessment should be cbac red. '
"After twelve years of experience with
rur society," be said, "I bare come to
tbe conclusion thst our plan is not sufficient
and that it will bring ns trouble In a Tery
few years, and I believe that some remedy
01 net be adopted to preserve this order."
Conttnulag Mr. Nortbcott stated that at
the present time tbe younger members of
tbe order were paying more than the actual
cost of their insurance and the older mem
bers leas than the actual eost.- "Vp to tbe
present," be ssid. "our deficiency baa been
paid by tbe younger members, and It has
act been a burden to them. But our cost
la bound to Increase, and then the coat to
the young man will become a burden. He
rill become dissatisfied at the Increased
assessment, and will seek some younger
society. It will not t possible to secure
tnough young members, to meet the de
Iclencies as tbey accrue with the tnereaaed
age of our member."
From tablea prepared by tbe committee
Mr. Nortbcott ahowed what each member
sr tbe order paid for bis lnsursnce and what
tbe order loat or gained by the difference
In the actual cost of tbe Insurance. He
looks of the several lodges that had been
compelled to cbazure their plan of assess
cent from those similar to the plan of the
Toodmen. He advocated the establishment
tf a reserve fund and the assessment of a
ember according to bis age, tbe age de
termining the risk. ' The member were
trged to give tbe subject deep thought and

the Pee pi.
Catholics, Episcopalians, FreebTterlanB
and Baptists turned out In the rain to
brnor a Roman Catholic bishop. From
the standpoint of diversity of th religious
belief represented, it waa a remarkable
assemblage that touched albowa at the
Omaha club last night, and Right Rev.
John Lancaster Bpaldlng. D. D., bishop of
Peoria. 111., to whom the complimentary
dinner waa given, waa moved to his moat
lofty flights of eloquence In praise of tbe
growing spirit cf tolerance that bad made
possible such a gathering. It was said that
in all. aeven denominations were repre
sented. The laity and the clergy, the
business and the professional man were
there, and throughout all the addresses
rsxg clear tbe notes of patriotism, charity,
spirituality and love of fellow man.
Those who responded to toasts were
Blshoo Bcannell. "His TTortb is Warrant
for His Welcome:" Bishop Spalding. "My
Country, 'tla of Thee;" Hon. Charles F.
Manderson. "Not What We Gain, but What
We Do;" Hon. Mel Vhl, "There's a Chiel
Amang Te Takin Notes, and Faith He'll
Prent 'em:" T. J. Mahoney. "But Faith
Ordalna that Dearest Friend Must Part."
Informal addresees were also made by Dr.
George L. Miller and Rev. T. J. Mackay.
John Rush acted as toastmaster.
Bishop Scannell waa the first speaker.
Hie remark were very brief, being confined
for tbe most part to extolling the guest
of honor. Bishop Spalding, to whom he paid
a glowing tribute. "He is a man of well
defined ideas," said be, "of firm convictions
snd he has tbe courage to proclaim tbem.
Therefor let his worth tonight be a war
rant to the welcome we extend him."
In introducing Bishop Spalding, tbe toast
maater said in part: "We do not extend
him thla spontaneous burst cf welcome
because he la celebrated among church
men, but because hi work for good, for
tb elevation of moral, christian cltlren
sblp and right living are manifest wher
ever hi great Influence la felt."
Trae Aaserlcaaism (a West.
Hie keynote of tbe bishop's address was
patriotism, as hinted by tbe toast to which
he had been assigned, and he spoke with
special reference to the great central west.
"The typical America, tbe real America,
shall grow up, not on the Atlantic seaboard."
he eald. "but here in the heart of our
country far enough away from Europe,
far enough away from Asia, thank God!
with ita effete and stationary populations
where it can get the pure air of freedom
to inspire the highest alma of American
n-anhood. America is tbe garden of tbe
world. Our great corn belt feeda the world
feeds it with pork, with beef or what
ever it may need. But Is there an American
who aay he love hi country because It
produce more acres of corn than any other,
because lta herds are countless and Its
wheatflelds boundless? No; that la not
tba ideal. That is not the life germ that was
merited br our fathers. Our Ideal la a
spiritual one. It must have been a spirit

present material supremacy. Matter la but

"He who has exceptional endowments,
whether Intellectual, moral or spiritual,
unless he would warp Into m nonentity of
selfishness, unless he would shrivel into
a cipher in tbe great sum of humanity,
muat give himself to others. (Applause,)
"So far as I am concerned, I have no
eyes for foreign conquest. W are not
here to perpetuate the might of material
things. Tbe great man ia not tbe war
rior, not the millionaire tbe great man to
be who has ths deepest insight, the broad
eat sympathies, and the clearest concep
tions of truth and virtue. The nations
who have produced a lasting Impress upon
the world have not done so by their wealth
or by their powers of conquest, but by
their spiritual prowess truth. Justice, hope.
love, raith. I would dedicate America, to
these groat principles."
Warla Mara Taleraat.
"The World Moves' waa the refrain of
General Manderaon' address. "I see evi
dence of H." aaid he, "In the growth of
tolerance. There la leas animosity between
exponents of different political bellefa, and
a spirit of Christian charity for those of
different religious faiths. Why, wa all
remember when a gathering like thla, given
In honor of a Catholic prelate, would be
criticised, yet now It 1 taken aa a matter
I see Taft has presented tbe literary
works of President Roosevelt to the pope,
and I can say that If there Is anything
calculated to rejuvenate that illustrious
gentleman it la the works of Theodore
Roosevelt. I can aea him now, inspired
by their fresh. Invigorating atmosphere,
and I can see him coming over here with
hi rifle, and going up into tb Rockies to
shoot mountain Hons in emulation of Theo
dore Roosevelt. Thla is one of tb evi
dences of tolerance.
"I can remember of reading when I wa
a boy la that part of tba Episcopal confes
sion of faith where it referred to tbe pope
aa 'anti-Christ,' and aa a 'son of per
dition,' but the Episcopal church has can
celled these terms of odium. It makea lit
tle difference whether I worship at one
church and yoa at another so long aa we
remain true to the principle which 11 at
tbe basis of ths Christian faith."
Mel Uhl road a brief paper entitled. "The
Moral Influence of th Newspaper." T. J.
Mahoney referred feelingly to several epi
sode In tbe life of Bishop Bpaldlng. Dr.

of Omaha, extolling the efforts of the Cath

"tbe fnlon Stock Tarda company has
made a great atrlde toward securing bus
iness for this market. By having a rep
resentative at Lincoln all of th time it
1 thought here that Mr. Kenyon'a in
vestment will soon pay for itself. Ship
ments of stock will doubtless be diverted
from other points to tbla market and
that la what the packers and tbe com
mission men here want. This market and
th yards can handle all of tbe stuff com
ing in and there la a constant demand for
mora. Good price are paid here and
with the shutting off of tbe shipments to
markets on the south it 1 predicted that
top notch price will prevail all tb
Caillar far Bids.
Th chairman of the buildings and
grounds committee of tbe Board of Edu
cation la advertising for bids for the lots
owned by tbe school district at Twenty
seventh and M street. Several times in
years past an effort haa been made to sell
this property and In fact tbe board has
been offered cash. Now there seems to
be a change aad the board wants to sell.
Tbe price tbe board has held these lots
for has alw&rft been considered too high
by those who talked of purchasing. Now
that tbe board wante tbe money to use for
building purposes In tbe eastern part of
the city a Bale may be made. When the
first tender waa mad it was for a long
time lease with the understanding that a
lumber yard would use tbe ground. Then
the Vnlon Pacific wanted the triangle and
tbe property now advertised, but tbe
board decided for aome reason to post
pone the sale and the railroad made other
Ceaeral satlsfartlea Expressed.
The eettlemest of the strike In Chicago
In connection with tbe teamsters and
packing houses appeared to give general
satisfaction to the people here. It had
been rumored that unless a settlement
was mad soon the trouble might spresd
to other packing centers. While tbe
worklngmen here, and especially the
teamsters, are, according to statements,
well paid, a demand from tbe Chicago end
of the union would have resulted in the
men here declining to work. Tbe notice
that there ia an end to tbe trouble seems
to aatlsfy business men, the packers and
the laboring men as well.
Fight Davis CI a I am.
Rumor haa it that L. A. Davis wants
aome more money for drawing the plans
for the proposed High school building.
He haa paid 11,900 already, but tbe agree
ment was to pay him a 'certain percentage
on the cost. Ths building haa never been
erected, and yet Davis, so It la reported,
wants more money. Ha alleges that there
la still J1.000 due him for tbe plans. Aa
the plane were accepted the board will
doubtless have to settle, but ther la
going to be a strong protest from tax
payers. Exaaatatasr Board.
