THE OMAHA DAILY ItEE: SATURDAY, JUNE 14, 1902.
BIG NIGHT AT ROYAL DEN
Ak-Sar-Ben Esceives Nebraska Undertaker
with Bpccial Osremonies.
SEVERAL BRIEF AND HAPPY SPEECHES
"Serial of the Hatrhet" Sceaa from
Initiator? Services of Two Years
Asa Revived Especially for
One hundred and sixty-four brave and
worthy esquires from Nebraska and a few
from torn other states were enrolled upon
the parchments of the kingdom of Qulvera
Thursday at a special communication of
the Knights of Ak-Sar-Ben VII. In honor
of the guests, most of whom were members
of the Nebraska Undertakers' association,
In whose honor the special meeting was
held, there was a variation In the usual
program and the knights hearkened back
two years to the Initiatory service of 1900,
giving the scene of the "burial of the
hatchet," one of the strongest scenes In
the Initiatory service of that year and on
which on account of lis suggest I veness was
considered particularly appropriate for the
occasion. The work was done principally
by those members who had taken the parts
two years previously.
With this exception the ceremony of en
rollment of the present year was followed.
It was undertakers' night and the games
and amusements were turned over to the
visitors. The highest scores In single
games were made by S. H. Reppert of
Pierce, Neb., and Albert Minds, a rank
outsider, who works In the postofTlce at
Detroit, Mich. In the games where they
scored blgh the work was remarkably bril
liant and elicited much applause from the
newly made knights and others who sus
pended operations to watch the plays.
Winners la the Finals.
In the finals, where strong playing and
nerve tell against the greatest brilliancy,
the star players, those who carried the
circulating medium away, were Peter Mer
ton of Blue II1U, whose great nerve was
shown by the haxards he took at critical
moments; J. O. Walroth of Edgar, whose
luck was phenomenal;' P. C. Heafey. who
faced the .tables and the odds with an
abandon which excited comment; E. Mead
of Chadron, whose play was considered the
most scientific, and Vat Becker, who lives
In Council Bluffs, which, may account for
the way In which he played.
At the conclusion of the games there
were speeches. The hit of the evening was
made by Oeorge H. Brown of Superior,
secretary of the Undertakers' association,
who spoke feelingly upon the relations
of Omaha to the state and the good fellow
ship shown in the entertainment of the
visiting delegates, not only at the den, but
In all other places about the city. He
closed by proposing three cheers from the
visitors for the Knights of Ak-Sar-Ben
and the city of Omaha. These were given
with a tiger and were responded to by
cheers for the guests by the knights la
attendance. W. P. Hohenschuh followed
Mr. Brown, speaking on the benefits to be
derived from a mixture of business and
pleasure. The last speaker was Val Becker,
whose stories convulsed the 'audience. The
usual refreshments closed the evening's
List OX the Visitors.

When Coffee Left tho Troablea Dlsap
It Is bard to make people understand
that' coffee really will do business tor them
If they stick to it long enough. It Is al
most a certainty that some little symptom
of disease, stomach trouble, or kidney or
heart trouble, caused by coffee drinking
.will ultimately develop into some fixed
organic disease unless the cause of the
disturbance Is removed. An illustration
may not be amiss.
A lsdy in Kearney, Neb., says': "I used
coffee a great many years. Gradually my
health, broke down. I had dyspepsia and
was extremely nervous. 1 passed many
leepless nights, but, like many others, did
not know what was the cause of my Invalid
"Finally the trouble centered into a fatty
tumor Just over the stomach and in the
region of the heart, causing acute pain In
the stomach and a spasmodic action of tha
heart. A surgical operation waa deemed
accessary, but after all the preparations
were made a good, old, honest doctor sug
gested that I take treatment a little longer
and leave off coffee and take Poetura and

"I began oa Postum and had it made

At the Boyd.
Another overflow audience was at the
Boyd last night, when the curtain rose on
the first act of "The Three Musketeers,"
presented by the Ferris Stock company.
Mr. Ferris has modified the piece rfc some
respects, notably the omission of the pro
logue, adding thereby to the movement of
the play and eliminating some of Its grew-
some features. As D'Artagnan Mr. Ferris
wears the costume and arms of tho Mos-
quetalre with much the same grace as
marked him when accoutred with some
brero, top-boots and six-shooter as the
Missouri sheriff. He enters boldly Into the
plrlt of the piece and makes the swash
buckling hero the genuine article. Miss
Hayward has a sympathetic role as Louise
and brings to the part much natural sweet
ness and artless grace. The supporting
cast is good and the ataglng is excellent.
The piece will run the rest of the week.
Gentry Bros. Ihow,
Gentry Bros, have a penchant tor com
ing to Omaha and saying, "Oh, no, there
nothing new about our exhibition. It la
Just as good as it was Isst year, no better
and no worse." But when you find your
way Into a tent and see 406 animals there
on parade array and have it demonstrated
beyond a doubt that all but four of them
are skilled actors this statement ia diffi
cult to believe.
In fact, the trained animal exhibition now
being given by Gentry Bros, at Eighteenth
and Douglas streets is by far the best thing
ot the kind that has ever visited Omaha.
It is not only that there are so many
trained animals gathered together; tt is not
only that the divers acta of a kind that
are duplicated nowhere with the same de
gree of precision and proficiency, but what
makes the Gentry exhibition most wonder
ful Is the absolute absence ot all human
Interference, collusion or connection ot any
aort. From first to last these little and big
animals come In front of tbe scenes and
do thetr little stunts seemingly with all the
willpower and Initiative of man.
In these days when both suggestion and
actuality in publlo performances border ao
often on tbe questionable It is an absolute
pleasure to see an exhibition that is totally
devoid of any symptom ot coarseness.
That's tha Gentry show through and
through clean, spotless. It is almost as
pleasing, too, to see a performance that is
Just what It purports to be, one with real
consistency as a Justifiable recommenda
tion. Add to this a uniformity In both con
duct and demeanor that cannot be excelled
by the strictest disciplined human army of
the world and then adduce the final fact
that not one act drags, that all parts of
the show are good from the start, and you
bave the Gentry affair sized up correctly.
When forty ponies come out for the open
ing act and go through marvelous military
maneuvers without an error the spectator
Is seized with tbe idea that this la cer
tainly the best act of the bill. All the
marching movements known these ponies
do and one half expecta tbem to take up
the setting up exercises and battle forma
But this la not the best. All the way
along the same high standard is main
tained. There are three elephants that
are simply great, among them the only one
in the world that really atands on Us head
tbe Baby Pinto, 28 years ot age. Equally
aa good are the little Mexican rough riders
in their fantastic attire, and the eight
ponies who alone in tbe world do the May
pole dance. Then, of course, tbe 207 dogs
with the organization are smooth as satin.
and the little bunch ot monkeys who do tha
conflagration act are the best In the busi
ness. They set their own fire, bring their
own apparatus and put it out all alone.
The exhibition continues with two perform
ances today and two Saturday.

FOUNDRY PROPOSITION FAILS
Holders' Union Eefusss Offer Mads by
ALL NEGOTIATIONS OFF FOR PRESENT
Representative of Chicago Concern
Kot Able to Make Satisfactory
Terms for Establishment
of Foundry Here.
II. H. Wright, general manager of the
Featherstone Foundry and Machine com
pany of Chicago, who has been in the city
since Tuesday investigating labor condi
tions, with a view to establishing an Iron
foundry at this place, left last night for
Chicago. He did not come to an under
standing with tbe members of the Iron
Moulders' union and all negotiations be
tween the company and the union are at an
end, at least for the present.
This foundry, should it be built, would
take the place of the foundry now being
torn down by the Union Pacific. It would
have a capacity of thirty to forty tons per
day and would furnish employment to the
moulders formerly employed by the Union
Pacific and now on lock-out because ot the
action of the railroad company In shutting
down Its foundry and sending its work to
the Featheratones In Chicago.
Mr. Wright and the executive committeo
of the locked-out moulders held several
conferences during bis stay In the city, and
of three written propositions he made to the
moulders all. were rejected. One, however,
was accepted by the committee, but later
voted down by the union.
"I made the committee a proposition,"
said Mr. Wright, "which provided that a
bonua of $1,600 be forfeited, subject to the
order ot the union. In the event of the fail
ure on the part of the Featberstone people
to have the foundry erected within ninety
days. It also provided that transportation
be furnished to members who desired to
work during these ninty days In Chicago.
When the foundry was completed here the
men would be returned at our expense. The
proposition provided, further, that the men
be paid minimum wages. The moulders to
raise the strike on the Union Pacific work.
"This proposition was modified to suit
the members of the union and waa finally
agreed upon by the committee. The com
mittee then reported to tbe union and this
afternoon they reported to me that the
union voted not to accept it.
"The matter of establishing such a plant
here has been under consideration since
last fall. President Burt of the Union Pa
cific has been Instrumental in Interesting
the Featherstone people in coming here. It
was our intention, should we have been able
to work Harmoniously with the union, to en
deavor to get the work of other railroads
and bring It to Omaha, which would be
something for the town and would furnish
employment to a large number ot men."
I'nlon's View of Situation.
The members of the executive committee
of the Iron Moulders' union were seen after
tbe meeting yesterday afternoon. The chair
man stated that the $1,500 proposition of
fered by the Featherstone people was a bid
to get them to go to Chicago and there do
acab work for the Union Pacific. "That Is
all It amounts to," said the chairman, "and
tbe union voted it down because we do not
Intend to be bought. They wanted us to
raise the strike on the Union Pacific. The
foundry proposition Is only Imaginary and
we do not believe the' Featheratones are
acting in good faith."
The members) of tbe moulders' union are
divided as to Jhe proposition of Mr. Wright
and considerable feeling has Been engen
dered.' One Ttneraber said he expressed the
sentiment -6f several when he gave out the
following interview: "The proposition of
the Featherstone company as offered by
Mr. Wright was a good one and perfectly
fair. It was rejected only on a technicality
and there was no real difference In what
they ottered and what we asked. The trouble
Is there are several members of the union
who have lived here a number of years and
they do not want to go to Chicago or any.
where elae to work. They voted against tbe
proposition because It eant that the strike
would be declared off. Several members
withdrew from the committee because they
became disgusted with the action of the
South Omaha News,
A number of taxpayers and others Inter
ested In tbe public schools have called a
meeting for tonight at the High achool tor
the purpose of discussing the proposition ot
constructing at least a portion of tbe pro
posed High school building this summer.
The plans for this building were drawn
aome time ago and, according to the etate
ment of the architect, the front or either
ot the wings may be constructed separately
without marring the symmetry ot tbe struc
ture when completed. As there is need of
more school room In the district north ot
N street some steps may be taken at the
meeting tohlght to Induce the board to de
fer action on the proposed building in tbe
It Is asserted by those interested that the
erection of one of the wings of the pro
posed High school building will obviate the
necessity for the building of an addition to
the Hawthorne achool and that there will
then be no need of a building ao near the
Jungmann school at the present time. Mem
bers of the Taxpayers' league and the East
Side Improvement rlub are interested In
the meeting to be held tonight and It Is
expected that there will be a large at

There has been do much talk lately about
the Taxpayers' league and the Influence
that it bears on the administration of pub
lic affairs that the people are beginning to
want to know who the members are. Then,
again, comes the Anti-Saloon league, with
Its agitators and a list of names at the
head of the editorial page. This paper has
been criticized many times tor Its action

promoters of the league who never be
longed or even thought of belonging. There
is going to be a request made to bave the
Taxpayers' league and the Anti-Saloon
league show their hands to the extent that
they make publlo their lists of members.
Club stars In Present Quarters.
For seme time past members of tha South
Omaha club bave been figuring on moving
into more commodious quarters, but It ap
pears that a suitable lease can not be ar
ranged at this time. It has been decided,
therefore, to remain In the present location
for the summer. While tbe quarters now
occupied are considered ample by soms of
the members, others desire to expand, and
as there Is no lack of funds a move may be
made In the fall, when a lease on the prop
erty in view may possibly be secured.

Too Great st Kiaw.
In almost every neighborhood someone
has died from an attack of colic or cholera
morbus, often before medicine could be
procured or a physician summoned. A re
liable remedy for these diseases should be
kept at band. Tbe risk is too great for
anyone to take. Chamberlain's Collo,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy has un
doubtedly aaved the lives of more people
and relieved more pain and suffering than
any other medicine in use. It can always
be depended upon.

Variety is added te tbe proceedings of
the Nebraska State Funeral Directors' as
sociation yesterday by the presence of tbe
State Board of Embalmers, which is also
In aeseion In Crelghton Medical college.
The two bodies are acting In conjunction
as far aa possible and many cf the mem
bers of tbe association will take the ex
amination before the board before leaving
The nndertakera succeeded at the
eleventh hour In finding a cadaver. It Is
that ot a man apparently about 40 years
of age and was delivered Thursday by the
Omaha Medical college. What the man's
name was In life la a secret Jealously
guarded by tbe undertakers, and they also
decline to reveal his late address, his
trade or tbe nature of the disease of which
be died. The body Is stretched out upon
the board before the members, about one
fifth of whom are women, and Prof. W. P.
Hohenschuh la marking on It with colored
chalk to demonstrate his lecture on the
subject, "The Vasculsr System and Arterial
Examination for F.mhalmers.
The embslmlng" bosrd, comprising P. C.
Heafey of Omaha, president; Joseph 8on
dormann of Grand Island, treasurer, and
W. M. Hill of Hebron, secretary, began
its day's work at 10 o'clock with twenty
applicants for licenses. .
"The examination," said Secretary 'Hill,
"will be written, verbal and practical, and
will go Into all branches of knowledge re
quired by the embalmer In the pursuit of
Ms calling. I can't give you any of the
questions that will be asked this year,
but here are three samples from last year's
" 'In a case where death was the result ot
a contagious disease, how would you pre
pare a body for shipment?"
" 'After a death from a contagious di
sease, how would you prepare a room for
" 'What Is bacteria (a) in the living
body? (b) In the dead body?'
"Practically the same ground will be
covered in the present examination. No
license will be Issued unless the applicant
passes the teats with an average marking
ot 75 per cent out ot a possible 100.
Nearly All Llcenaed.
"There are now 825 licensed embalmers
in the state, out of a total of 450 persons
engaged in the undertaking business. To
distinguish between the licensed and unli
censed embalmers, the latter are called
'coffin sellers,' and they live for the most
part In the little villages In aparcely set
tled sections of the state. Considering that
only three years have elasped since
the law waa enacted requiring embalmers
to pass an examination and take out a
license, I think this Is a very fair show
in." The board will finish Its work Saturday
