Eighty of the moat prominent and beat
known young business men of Omaha were
banqueted at 6:30 last night at the First
Congregational church by courtesy of the
women of that congregation and aa guests
of the three dally newspaprra whose edi
tions they retail. Afterward they were the
fcueata of Manager Carl Rotter of the Or
rheum theater.
The affair at the church was a function
of much pomp and circumstance. Hon. Joe
Carroll and Hon. Mogy Bernstein, with
Captain Crip of the supply station at Six
teenth and Farnam atreeta, were given the
seats of honor at the east end of the ban
quet hall, facing the profllea of the other
guests, who ranged along the two long ta
bles extending westward. All were In full
dress Tery full by the time they were
through eating. Mr. Joey Newman got his
too full and had to be helped out Into tho
air and revived.
All delivered addresses, extemporaneous,
but pointed and full of philosophy. Mr.
Fatty Fisher said the oceaslon would re
main Impressed upon both his cerebrum and
his cerebellum through all future epochs
and that In the meantime he'd be glad to
get another helping of turkey. Mr. Mickey
Free expressed an entire concordance with
the sentiment of the occasion nnd wondered
If he could be: put next to a third slab of the
angel food. Mr. Two Sticks declared that
the event had Inclined him to optimism,
notwithstanding he was two feet shorter
than he was before he got under tho street
car. Mr. Jumbo (maiden name "Little
Eddy") toasted the five vokinteer cooks
and eleven waiters and Immediately there
after'gave them all something to do.
It's la the Air.
Mr. Cream Satda, real Syrian, and Mr.
Nano Pasha, real Turk, spoke of the facility
with which one of foreign birth may In
uoculate hlmaelf with the germ of Yankee
strenuoslty and incidentally Inquired how
'.he celery was holding out. Mr. Shanty
Campbell dessertated upon the immutable
law of human progress and stated that he
llmself was getting along very well at that
writing. Mr. Ooo-Ooo Eyes O'Brien de
fended as rightcocs and imperishabl-i tho
principle of free speech, but admitted that
personally he was too full for further ut
terance. Mr. Oshy Rosenthal denounced as
maliciously and designedly falsa tho derog
atory rumor that he had surreptitiously ac
quired and sold a ball and chain belonging
at the police station and then to prove his
good Inclinations stowed seven pickles away
in his right-hand pocket. Mr. Buddy Cramer
iteotiite.' tho Joys of be ..g "off to Cali
fornia, In a boxcar, but drew the conclu
ilon that the mashed potatoes should come
his way by express. Mr. Joey Mahan, the
dude too proud to hustle, deprecated any
manual toll tending to detract from In
herent daintiness, but allowed he could
i.lspose of more jelly without tolling hla
lunch hooks.
Mr. Ixzy, who generally is not where nil
mother thinks he is, occupied a seat ad
jacent to the base of supplies, having ar
rived half hour earlier than "the bunch"
'or that express purpose, and he waa a
very busy Iity through tbo entire pro
eedlrig, because he sat next to Mr. Little
Shanty, con man, who had successfully
gold-bricked a waiter Into giving them
through service to the pie works. Mr.
Hunky Orapenhelsor begged to be excused
Trom speaking, because the day's open air
meetings had made him husky of voice.
Other devoted considerable attention to
the provisions of the pure food law.
Sot Too Frond to Walk.
Those who had not their private car
riages had walked to the church from the
rendetvous back of The Bee building In a
body and left the same way, first pausing
to give a Comanche hurrah as an expres
sion of the gratitude they felt. Another
hurrah was for Manager Relter and an
other was as encouragement to a Bee staff
photographer, who was trying to get them
still long enough for a flashlight.
This was but one of several annual din
ners given the newsboys of Omaha, but
the guests seemed no less Interested and
pleased with the progress of the meal.
There was good order, and somewhere out
In this broad universe they had found
water and soap enough to reduce their
complexion to approximately the normal.

A How Preparation Which Everyone
Will Seed looser or Later.
Almost everybody's digestion Is disor
dered more or less, and the commonest
thing they do for It Is to take some one of
the many so-called blood purifiers, which In
many cases are merely, strong cathartics.
Such things are not needed. If the organs
are In a clogged condition, they need only a
little help and they will right themselves.
Cathartics Irritate the sensitive linings of
the stomach and bowels and often do more
harm than good.
Purging Is not what Is needed. The
thing to do is to put the food In condition
to be readily digested and aaalmilated.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets do this perfectly.
They partly digest what Is eaten and give
the stomach Just the help it needs. They
stimulate the secretion and excretion of the
digestive fluids and relieve the congested
condition of the glands and membranes.
They put the whole digestive system In con
dition to do Its work. When that Is done
you need take no more tablets, unleas you
sat what does not agree with you. Then
take one or two tablets give them needed
help and you will have no trouble.

mon sense treatment and it will cure every

Thomas l,onr) of Minneapolis Spends
Few Honrs In Omaha on
War West.
Thomas Lowry, the Minneapolis cspltallst,
president of the Boo railroad and also presi
dent of the Twin City Rapid Transit com
pany, which embraces all the street car
lines In Minneapolis. St. Paul. White Bear,
Stillwater and the other suburban lines In
that vicinity, was in Omaha aeveral hours
yesterday with Mrs. Lowry on their way to
Colorado Springs for a holiday visit and to
become acquainted with a new granddaugh
ter whom Mr. Lowry says is his Christmas
Mr. Lowry Is making extensive Improve
ments on both his railroad and street car
lines. He has already ordered 11,000,000
worth of new equipment for the Soo road,
all of which will be placed In use during
the coming year.
"The natural increase In the volume of
our trsfflc, both passenger and freight, has
made it necessary for us to Increase our
equipment," said Mr. Lowry. "The Soo
road haa enjoyed one of the moat prosper
ous periods of Ms history In the yesr Just
closing. We hsve done considerable build
ing and have materially added to our equip
ment, but the next year will show more ex
tensive improvements."
Mr. Lowry denied the rumors that he had
been Intending to project his line up into
Canada. He said he had all the territory
he wanted in the United Statea and would
confine himself to this domain for a while
at least. He also said that hs waa not in
terested In any railroad building in Colo
rado. Mr. Lowry spoke with real of the vast
Improvements being n.ade in tho Twin
City Rapid Tram-it company.
"We are building a central power plant
In Minneapolis that will furnish power for
our entire street car system and for some
other things, too, If it, is required." said
Mr. Lowry. "Wo have been operating our
cara with several plants In St. Paul a-id
Minneapolis, but when this central plnnt
is completed all theso plants will te
abandoned and the motive power will all
come from this one establishment. We will
expend $2,500,000 In the establishment of
this plant. The foundation Alone, on which
we are now working, will cost $100,000. Thi
plant will start with 27,000 horse-power
and will be enlarged as occasion demands.
We expect to have It In operation some time
In 1904."
Mr. Lowry was a republican candidate
for United States senator to succeed the
late Cuahman K. Davis in the legislature
of 1900, when Moses E. Clapp of St. Paul
was elected. When asked If he expected
to become a candidate for the same office
again, the jolly Scotchman merely smile 1
and said:
"There will be another contest two years
Senator Clapp was elected to fill out the
four years of the unexpired term of Sen
ator Davis.
Mr. Lowry made a call on the editor of
The Bee while in the city. He and Mrs.
Lowry proceeded west In their private car
over the Union Pacific.

Latest One Puts City Claim Agent in
Beminisctnt Mocd.
Whenever Anybody Takes a Sidewalk
Fall the Plrtnre Man Itnrrlea to
the Scene with Ills
The city clerk has received from Mrs.
Susie Cottrell a notification that she pro
poses to demand of the city of Omaha
110,000 tor injuries sustained In a fall a
few weeks ago In front of 1401 Douglas
street. She avers that the sidewalk there
was rough and icy, and that the "ssld
Injury wss caused on account of the side
walk being left in such rough and icy con
dition." The injury, she explains, is per
manent, as by falling she broke her coccyx,
the lower extremity of the spine.
When the communication was mentioned
to City Claim Agent George C. CockrW.,
he said: ,
"In view of the fact that every time any.
body gets hurt outside his own door yard
he generally tries to gel the city to pay
tor It, I expected that this claim would
be showing up In due time, and the city
Is fully prepared for It. It happened to bn
two city hall men who picked up Mrs. Cot
trell when she sat down that evening, and
they mentioned the matter to me. I went
down the next morning and had tho plac
photographed. It was as clear of ice as
a walk could be. and In addition to the
evidence of the photograph, I have several
witnesses who will testify to the same.
Measure of Self-l'rotectton.
"Attempts to make the city pay for all
accidents of all kinds have become so
numerous that now we send a photographer
on the run nearly every tlmo we hear of
anybody falling and slipping. It is a
measure of self-protection for tho city
more than Justifies Its slight cost. Ono
who has never had anything to do with
the legal department has no Idea how
many fake claims we have to puncture
right at the start to save the bother of
beating them in court, nor what a help
this photography Is. Omaha paid out only
$2,540 in settlement of personal injury
claims last year, whereas South Omaha,
one-fourth the size, paid out in tbe neigh
borhood of $2,200 for the same period. This
year our total will run a llttlo higher, but
I do' not know how much, as the annual
reports are not ready.
"The public never hears of some of the
claims and requests which are filed, as
they are of such trifling consequence as to
receive scarcely more than a laugh and a
teas. One man wanted pay for breaking
the leg of his dog, and explained very
frankly that he himself had sat upon the
dog and caused the fracture. He consid
ered the city responsible because the walks
were wet and slippery at the time.
Held City for His Nose.
"Another man bumped Into a telephone
pole out In tbe suburbs one dark nlgbt
and wanted damage for the resulting frac
ture ot hi nose. Another fell over a fire
hydrant, sprained hi wrist and wrote City
Attorney Connell that he would settle for
$30 and a week' board at some asylum.
One night last winter an Italian peanut
vender wrenched a wheel off hi cart aa
he wa going over the car track and came
up to the city hall a day or two after to
make us pay tor the glass broken and for
having a new wheel put on.
"But the worst we ever had as a dem
onstration ot gall was by an Omaha busi
ness man quite well known out in the
north part of town. He slipped on the Ice
or snow In front of hla own residence one
evening and wanted the city to pay him
for the time he wa laid up with a sprained
ankle. I told him If he ever made such
a proposition again we would have him
arrested and fined for maintaining a
nuisance, endangering publto safety and
conspiring against the city."
Announce that lie Will Not Accept
Position In County Auditing
Thomas Hoctor gave It out cold and flat
In South Omaha yesterday that he will not
serve as deputy In the county auditing
office, for which place he was named a
month ago when the deputy county clerk
ship was given to A. J. Webb, thun serving
In the place to which Hoctor was ap
pointed. Hoctor said that he "had never
worked under a boss and doesn't propose
to commence now."
A year ago he retired from the office of
county commissioner with the consent of
a majority of the democrats ot his terri
tory, and thereafter remained in the con
struction contracting business and in lnJ
nocuous desuetude until tbe death ot
County Clerk Miller, when he promptly
bobbed up as a candidate for Miller's Office.
He lost to John C. Drexel, but upon tho
latter there was imposed the condition
that Hoctor be made deputy clerk. When
it came to a "show-down" this was aban
doned and Hoctor sidetracked into the
auditor's office. This he appeared to ac
cept, but now turns down.
Yotan Cltlsen Sends Sick Relative
Here for Free Hospital
Mary Jordan, who claims that she is a
resident of Yutan, Neb., was taken to police
headquarters from the Union depot Monday
evening, Just after she bad arrived In the
city to receive treatment at a hospital. She
claimed that a relative placed her on board
the train, telling her that she could re
ceive free treatment here. She Is under
the matron's care at the Jail and appears to
be slightly demented. Surgeon Mick is in
consultation with the County hoepital au
thorities and the patient may be taken
there, though she is not a resident of Doug

have had aeveral such cases recently from
up tbe state, where people are sent to

Blglow Is a boy about 22 years old, and
was only one of three Implicated In tbe
postoffice robbery. It Is believed that Big
low played the smallest part In the affair
and that he was a tool In the hands of
professional burglars. The other two men
were never apprehended and Blglow, up to
date, Is the only one to be punished for
the crime.
After Blglow was arrested and up to a
few days before his trial he appeared to be
entirely friendless, and his only visitor was
the Jailer. Then a person dressed In
woman' clothes appeared on the scene and
applied to Assistant United States Attorney
Rush for permission to visit Biglow, stat
ing that she was the boy's mother.
The alleged mother was referred to
United States Attorney Summers, who re
ferred her to Judge Munger, who granted
her permission to visit the prisoner. Thl
she did and then she railed upon J. M. Mo
Parland rnd engaged him as attorney to
defend Blglow. She. hinted that the boy
came of good family and that she wished
to work as much in secret as possible.
After the boy was convicted she disap
peared. It Is thought that the person was
one of tbe men guilty with Biglow of tbe
robbery and that he appeared on tbe scene
to look after his own interests and avoid
being Implicated.
Judge Munger yesterday afternoon sen
tenced Blglow to three years' imprisonment
nt Sioux Falls.

Report to Annoyance of
J. C. Root.
By transplanting the date line of a dis

Its contents, a local yellow Journal has
made J. C. Root of this city, the sovereign
commander of the Woodmen of the World,
the leading figure in a court scene at El
Paso, Tex., In which he had no part what
ever, being safely here In Omaha, hundreds
of miles away. The dispatch purported to
be an account sent to a St. Louis paper ot
an outbreak by Mies Alice Frlzzel, plaintiff
In a slander suit against A. C. Root, Inter
rupting the trial by firing a revolver and
driving the defendant out of tbe court room.
The Fort Smith Root has no relationship to
J. C. Root of this city, and the only local
feature of tho case arises from the fact that
Miss Frlzzel was plaintiff In a spectacular
damage suit against the Omaha Street Rail
way company recently. The distortion of
the report has naturally caused some an
noyance to Mr. Root as a case in which tbo

new psychological point of view, analysing
the several traits of Tolstoi's character,
tracing tbe growth of character, the mo
tive, the varying methods and indicating
his shortcomings. Intellectually, and point
ing out wherein lies the peculiar greatness
ot the man. To accentuate theae things be
contrasts Tolstoi with Destolevskl, hi an.
tithesls In nearly every rcapect. Tbe two
men are typical Russians; Tolstoi "1 lord
of the present," Destoievikt's fame, the
writer believes, is of tbe future. He say
the nearer Tolstoi Is to the body, the
animally primitive "natural" man, the
more faithful and profound Is hi psycho
physiology for he denies him acute psy
chological powers. In proportion as Tolstoi
leaves thl field for that ot spirituality, un
connected with the body, leaving ths pas
sions of tbe heart for ths passions cf the
mind, bis psychology becomes doubtful,
while his rival, Destolevskl, becomes
greater. Merejkowskl calls Tolstoi "the
greatest portrayer ot tha human animal In
language, the first to strip the human
frame of all social and historical wrap
ping, and again entertain the Aryan Idea."
Criticism and critical anaylsia go hand In
hand in this work, which deals Impartially
and Justly with the authors ot "the two
greatest works of the European literature
of to day, "Anna Karenlna" and "Tbe
Brothers Karamaiov." Published by O. P.
