After viewing "Corianton" one Is almost
forced to exclaim as did Sheba at Solomon's
magnificence, "The half ha not been told
me." No good reason exists why a power
ful play should not come out of Utah. In
fields of art the Mormon has achieved no
great distinction, and yet bis productions
In srchltecture, music, and literature have
served. If they bare not satisfied, bis peo
ple. It may be that his aspirations bava
leaped out to a wider world. At any rate,
he was not forbidden to "make any graven
image or likeness of anything that is In
heaven or In earth or the waters under the
esrth," and bis light has Anally Bashed
forth. It may be a meteor' flight, or It may
be a new star in the armament of art; only
time can answer this, but Orestes U. Bean
bas certainly given to the world a play of
power and, what Is better than that, a
play of purity. Vice has a large part In
the play, but Is Introduced only for the pur
pose of showing how hideous sin really is.
It affords the sable background against
which th bright hues of virtue are dis
played to shine the brighter by the con
trast. And to the embodiment of this lofty
Idea Mr. Bean has brought the gift of po
etic expression and the blessing of artistic
Imagination, and the working out of bis
thought ha resulted In a dramatically
strong play dressed In appropriately at
It Is not the purpose to take up the play
In detail. "Corianton" Is not perfect, nor
would one expect It so, but the pleee most
thoroughly justifies all that bas been said In
Its praise. It Is given with an Infinitude of
pains, and present a remarkable succession
of pictures from end to end. Its story Is
simple. A deeply religious people under
takes to work the conversion of a thought
less, which stands as a, buffer between the
devout and a savage race that alms at the
destruction of both. Corianton, son of the
prophet, 1 converted by the miracle which
striKes down Korlhor, the scoffer, and beads
the mission which undertakes to accomplish
the alliance sought by preaching the true
gospel. He Is thwarted in the moment of
his triumph through the wile of a fallen
woman, who repent too late. Stung by
shame and remote, he makes a new resolvs,
and finally saves his people. A a suplot the
Inevitable thread of love runs a devious way
to a satisfactory conclusion. Pervading all
the play 1 a deep religious thought, which.
towever, doe not at any time dominate the
human Interest of the story.
In Mr. Joseph Haworth' hands Corianton
become a reality. Thl actor ha fairly
realized all that was promised tor him, and
stands pre-eminent on the American stage
today aa an Illustrator of romantic tragedy.
Hi physique and splendid voice afford an
Ideal medium for the exploitation of bis ex-
celent artistic thought. His support Is al
most uniformly good. Cbarle Ray Bower,
a Shlblon, brother of Corianton, a relig
ious sealot with an unsounded depth of fra
ternal love, and James H. Lewis, as Korlhor,
the blasphemer, are actors of unusual merit.
Miss Agnes Roseland, as Isabel, the siren,
I Inclined to overact, ber deficiency In this
regard being emphasised by the bearing of
Mr. Haworth during their strong scene In
the second act. Miss Thais Magran bas th
Juvenile part of Rella, and doea It very well.
No better ataged play waa ever seen at the
Boyd and the chorus and ballet Incidental
to Its production are marvellously refresh
ing, the chorus being selected from the Tab
ernacle choir of Sat Lak City, a recom
mendation sufficient, and tb ballet being
recruited from among the fairest of Utah's
daughters. A fairly good audience warm:
applauded the play last night.
"Corianton" will be at the Boyd for the
reat of the week, with matinees on Wednes
day and Saturday.

"Christmas cornea but once a year and now
'tis almost here," runs the little ditty.
Rlngling'a circus, like the glad Yuletlde,
comes but once a year, and now It's come
and gone. That's tb only sad feature to
It. It' a pity that Christmas and Ringllng's
both can't com on every day in th year,
or stay longer when they do come, they both
bring such universal pleasure.
What better proof of the general popular
ity of the great show and tha universal
pleasure It gives thsn the admiring and
cheering thousands that packed the mam
moth tents at both performances yesterday!
Surely no one who could have gone, or at
least who could have gotten Inside tb tent,
did not ge, for tb tent was bulged out on
all sides, almost punctured In places, and
then some. - Papas and mammas, grandpa
pa and grandmas. Aunt Mary, Mallnda and
Sarah and Uncle Jeb, Joalah and John Henry
were all there, besides Aunt Lucy's ben and
Cousin Em and all of their folks and the
hired man. Then there were Cbawley and
Augusta, L, 8tevsnus and all of "them
boys." It was a typical circus crowd la the
afternoon and another typical circus crowd
In the night.
And It was "th real thing" In th show
line on both occasions. Never bas this
great aggregation of wonders appeared to
better advantage than It did at theae two
performances yesterdsy. Rlngllng Bros.'
circus bas a completeness about It that gives
It th air of substantiality and places It be
yond tb pel of ths ordlnsry show. They
have a wonderful collection of animate and
theae animal do some wonderful things.
But tb wild animals, tamed to suit, era
not all there are people who are equally
a remarkable In their line. All th per
formance and exhibition are a unique and
interesting as could b seen under a circus

SETTLE THE TEXT BOOK CONTROVERSY
"Stepping- Stoones of Literature" to Be
Ised la the Public Schools Place
Baa oa Boys Who
More than four hours were consumed by
the Board of Education last evening In tha
transaction of the business of the meeting
and most of thst time wss occupied In
contention over rule of order or ques
tions of privilege. In spite of the pro
nounced disposition on the part of some
of the members to work at cross purposes
with one another, the session wss not
barren of results, for the work of restoring
salaries to their status prior to the cut
of Isst January was practically completed,
and the earnestly debated question of the
Introduction of, "Stepping Stones to Litera
ture" was settled, for the time being at
least, and various other matters which
have given the board and Us committee
more or less concern of late were dis
posed of. President Barnard waa the only
member absent and the chair was occupied
by Vice President Howard.
The committee on salaries having had
before It the resolutions of Messrs. Wood
and W. F. Johnson, proposing the Increase
of certain salaries, recommended as a
substitute for both of those measures that
the salaries of the principal and teachers
of the high school and the supervisors of
kindergartens, music and drawing, and the
superintendent of Instruction, be restored
to the amounts respectively which these
employes were receiving at the time of the
adoption of the present rules, January (,
Restores (he Old Rates.
W. r. Johnson moved to amend the report
by Incorporating a provision that all teach
er who would have been entitled to an
Increase by reason of term of service be
given the natural Increase, and the mo
tion to amend was adopted by fourteen
affirmative votes. Finding the board in so
liberal a mood, Mr. Johnson offered a fur
ther amendment to place the salary of J.
F. Woolery, second assistant prlnclpsl of
the high school, at $140, on the ground that
he bad not been given the Increase which
hi advancement In position entitled blm
to and was only drawng $130 per month.
Robert Smith was unwilling to agree to
that unless Miss Kate McHugh. first as
sistant principal, was advanced from $1,590
per year to $1,800, and offered a substitute
amendment fixing both of the salaries at
the figure named. This amendment was
also accepted by unanimous vote of those
present, as waa still another Increasing
the salary of J. F. Wlgman, teacher of
manual training, from $100 to $110 per
month, and the report with all of those
amendments was adopted by a vote of 12
to 2, Messrs. Levy and Mcintosh voting In
A report of llio couUulttee a sa'arSsa
recommending that the pay of Thomas FlU
gerald, custodian of the high school, be
raised to $95 per month, was adopted by
the same vote of 12 to 2.
Stepping; Stoaea Adopted.
The committee on textbook and courso
of study renewed.. Its recommendation that
"Stepping Stones to Literature" be adopted
for gradual Introduction Into the schools
above the second grades, specifying, how
ever, that th Introduction should be in
accordance with the rules now In force,
which In effect defer the uae of the book
until tb opening of the next school year.
The presentation of thl report opened a
general and animated discussion a to the
desirability of making any change and the
wisdom of making a change at thl time
to take effect next year.
J. J. Smith, chairman of the committee
which bad reported, stated that In response
to letter be hsd received replies from
all and thirty-two of thirty-four favored a
change from the Appleton readers. From
a list of textbooks named in the letter
twenty-two of the principals bad selected
he "Stepping Stones" ss their preference.
Robert Smith questioned the fairness of
certain members of the committee in the
wording of that letter to which Mr. J. J.
Smith had referred and read from a copy
of the letter to show that It was so worded
as to convey te tbe prlpclpals the Informa
tion that the committee had already de
cided upon that particular book and desired
that tha preference expressed should be
In consonance with that idea.
A motion on tbe part of W. F. Johnson
to postpone the report until tbe second
meeting In October, on tbe ground that
there was no hurry abou adoplng new books
tor nex year, was lost by a vte of 11 to S
and the committee report wa adopted.
A motion by Mr. Mcintosh to suspend
tbe rule to adopt a resolution to have
the change of booka take effect at once
wa ruled out of order on th ground that
tbe time bad been set, and a motion by
W. F. Johnson to rescind the action of the
board as to the time of adoption was laid
on tbe table until the next regular meet
ing. On recommendation of tb committee on
text books and course of study, Williams
A Rogers' were adopted for us In the
high school and 275 copies will be or
dered; also twenty-four text book on
shorthand either of tbe Graham or Munson
system, as the teacher of shorthand may
A report of the committee on supplies
was adopted providing for the purchase of
a pair of parallel bars and other gymna
sium apparatus amounting In all to about
Penalty for saoklaa;.
From the committee on rules there were
two reports aa to the matter of dealing
with smoking among the students of th
high school. The majority report, signed
by Mr. Mcintosh and Robert 8mlth. rec
ommended the amendment of the rules ap
plying to military Instruction In such a
manner as to provide that "hereafter In
the high school no young men who smokes
clgsrettes be promoted to a position as
officer la th cadet regiment."
The minority report, which was from Mr.
Funkhouser, waa simply less poaltlvs in Its
wording and recommended that It be un
derstood that In making promotions In ths
cadet regiment the queatlon of whether a
young man used tobacco or not would be
taken Into consideration. After soma dis
cussion ths minority report waa lost and
the majority report adopted.

Th committee on high school recom
mended that la accordance with the sug

On the resolution of Mr. Cermak provid
ing for vaccination as a rsqulsits for ad
mission to the schools ths judiciary com
mittee reported that after having conferred
with tbe attorney the committee bad be
come convinced that compulsory vaccina
lion waa a subject for tha health depart
ment rather then th Board of Education
to deal with, and recommended thst the
matter be dropp.d. Tbe report was sdopted.
On recommendation of the committee on
buildlnga and property the bid of W. P.
Deverell to build a smokestack and coal
room at the blgh school of bsrd ssnd brick
was accepted. There were six bids and that
of W. T. Deverell was tbe lowest.
Tbe committee on boundaries reported al
veraly on the application of F. A. Kllker, a
resident of Benson, from free tuition In the
high school for hi children on the ground
that he is a taxpsyrr of this city. Tbe com
mittee stated that the case was similar to
a number of others In which the board
had required that a tuition fee be paid and
that tbe law did not grant free tuition to
children, even though their parents owned
taxable property within the school district.
Tbe report was adopted.
Tbe resignations of Edna Harney Water

BOARD OF EDUCATION HOLDS SESSION
John Jack man, After Five Ballots, Is
Elected Truant Officer Library
Deeds Are Ready Mnajle
Mayor Kouteky declared yesterday that
he wa In favor of Issuing a proclamation
calling upon tb people to express their
opinion on an issue of bonds' to take up tbe
overlap. The mayor said:
"At the present time the overlap amounts
to about 162,000, and this ha been paid
out of tbe 1902 levy. The payment of this
outstanding Indebtedness has caused a
shortage in the funds snd city employes
will be compelled to discount their psy
warrants for the next ten months, before
th next levy will be available. When war
rant are Issued the city pays interest at
the rate of 6 per cent. Now, with an Issue
of bonds, this rate could be reduced and
the financial affairs of the city would be
placed on a firm basis."
In addition to tbe overlap bonds the
mayor favor asking the voters for from
$30,000 to $59,000 for the erection of a city
The lease for the building now occupied
as municipal headquarters expires in De
cember, 1903, and the mayor figures thst
It will tske at least ten months to erect
a suitable city ball In case the bonds aro
voted at the November election.
Another city official said: "For some
years past the city baa been paying $145
a month for tbe present city ball, and the
accommodation furnished are not adequate
to the needs of the city, as the quarters
are cramped. More room is needed. In
addition to this, $40 a month I being paid
for rental for the fire hall on Twenty
fourth street. Then there is the rent for
the mayor' office and the office of city
attorney, which together amount to $25 a
month. Thl makes a total rental of $210
It I asserted by certain business men In
terested In South Omaha bonds that there
would be no difficulty In disposing of these
sect-lties. In case only overlap bonds were
voted the Interest would be $2,70 a year,
while If the $50,000 city hall bond were
voted the Interest would-be $5,040 a year.
Mayor KouUky had a conference with
City Attorney Murdock yetsreday evening
and It is possible that a proclamation will
soon be forthcoming.
