"The Cloning of the Theater on Sunday
Nlght"was the subject, of Rev. W. J. Csl
fee'e pulpit opinion, delivered at the
Broadway Methodls. curcH laat evening In
blace of the regular sermon. .
In opening Rev. Calfee stated that' bis
pulpit opinions were not given as the opin
ions of the. members of Broadway church
and congregation, but were decidedly the
bplnloa of the one uttering them, and re
ferred to the fact that the attempt of a tew
food wive and mothers to close the pub
le playhouse on Sunday night had Invited
Considerable discussion and even criticism.
In brief Rev, Calfee's opinion on the mat
ter was g: Ven briefly as follows:
"The ' searchlight from the top of the
playhouse turned on our homes, our
Churches and our streets on Sunday nights
teems so popular that we propose to trans
fer It to the church steeple tonight and
turn It on the Sunday night theater. My
tatm, deliberate judgment Is that the Sun
flay night theater ought to be closed, and
this In the face of all arguments used so
far to the contrary." i
Then, after calling Attention to the fact
that the crusade for the closing of the
Bonday night thjater bad been begun by
Women, be said: "Now, my opinion la that
some man who ought to be enforcing law
la this city and those who are not should
Bet up soma morning and dress themselves
In the garments on the other chair and
leave their chair and Its contents for the
wife. : Women may not be as astute poli
ticians or aa long-headed la business mat
ters as men, but they do know right from
wrong. I have never beea much of a wo
man's tights man, but I declare to you I
would like to see some of our sissy men
Bfflclals In skirts and some of our broad
Winded, home-loving. God-fearing, patrl
btlo women In control of publto affairs.
(When the best . wives and mothers of a
community say a thing Is wrong and ought
to be atopped, let all the men aay 'Amen.
Not (or Werklagmea.
"It is urged that the Sunday night play
bouse ought to be allowed to run for the
sake of the working people. I confeas this
argument makes me .mad. . I resent such
an Imputation against the very best class
of citizens In our city. The working peo
ple go to church as a crass In greater numw
bars than any others. This argument la
also a libel on the men of our' community
who employ labor, as If they were grinding
the life out of the men and women they
employ. Thla argument Is' as false aa sin,
(or neither class Is guilty of the charges
preferred against them.".
Taking up the argument that the theater,
would hate to close ' - permanently unless
the Sunday" night performances were' al
lowed. Rev. Calfee said that dulng bla two
years' residence in Council Bluffs there
bad aot been. In his opinion, a single first
class ahow presented either on Sunday or
any other night. This statement, be aald,
did not apply to the plays given by home
talent. "In my opinion all the shows given
here have not added one lota to the com
mercial well being of the city or- to the
physical, Intellectual, moral or spiritual
well being of a atngle Individual.".
As to the argument that if the theater
waa closed here people would go to the
theaters in Omaha Sunday nights. Rev.
Calfee said: "Perhaps It is for the best
they should go, for Sunday night In Omaha
may satisfy them so they will not be
tempted to go over week dsya with full
purses and empty arms and return with
empty purses and full arms. I suppose we
ought to have a modest little hell In Coun
cil Bluffs as long aa they have such a ltlg,.
prosperous hell in Omaha. At least all our
city officials seem to second that motion.'
In closing the speaker assured the mem
bers of the Woman'a Christian Temperance
union of his support in their effort to close
the theater Sunday nights.

of Its Owi,
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES, Feb. 1. (Special.) Gov
ernor A. B. Cummins has not yet decided
fully In bis own mind whether or not it Is
necessary that he should call a special
election In the Second congressional dis
trict to fill the Vacancy caused by the death
of Captain J. N. W. Rumple. The law In
Iowa appears to be mandatory and requires
that the governor shsll immediately call a
special election oa the death of a congress
man and give ten days' notice thereof. The
purpose of making It mandatory la ao that
no governor could Interfere with the ma
jority in congress by refusing to call an
election In districts where the rote might
not suit him. It Is not recalled that any
Iowa congressmen ever died In office, so
that the provision of the constitution and
the law requiring the calling of a special
election have never been put Into use. It
Is estimated that an election In the Second
district woufd cost between $12,000 and $15.
000 and the successful candidate could not
possibly serve more than fifteen days In
congress. This would be securing repre
sentation In congress at a greater expense
than It would be worth. There are elx
counties In the diatrlct and all are popu
lous. Captain Rumple had about 1,000 re
publican majority, but Judge Wade, at the
last election, bad over 1,500 democratic
majority. The district Is regarded as norm
ally democratic. Th democrats would un
doubtedly put up Judge Wade, but it is
not certain who would be named by the
republlcana. If there la any possible way
the governor can avoid the calling of a
special election be will do ao, as be re
gards It as not worth while to go to the
trouble thla near the end of the aesslon.
He will decide It on Monday, and If the
special election la ordered it will be for
the Ilth or 12th bf February. Politicians
of the Second district aay they do not rel
ish the Idea of a campaign being thrust oa
them at this time.

Another railroad Is to he built Into the
town of Pella, in Marlon county. A local
company has b9en formed' for the purpose
of constructing a line of railroad about
eight or ten miles from Pella to the town
of Harvey, where connection will be made
with the Burlington and Wabash railroads.
Tho only railroad Pella baa had la a

has beten poor. The people have resolved
upon building their own outlet.
Complaints continue to coma to the
state railroad commissioners ia regard to
the taking off of a trala oa th- Waukoa

Hir Ask for Resorvey.
Governor Cummins has beea vrged to
ask the surveyor of the general land office
at Washington to send surveyors to Iowa
to resurvey Goose Iske, in Greene .county.
This was meandered aa a lake by the sur
veyors when the original survey waa made
In 1852, and waa so treated for many years.
Recently It baa been drained and used for
a field. The owners of the lake now de
sire to secure title to the same by hav
ing it declared swamp land, so that the
title could come through, the atate and

Refuses to Bead laiaat Back.
For over a year efforts hava been made
by the officials of Polk county to bave
sent back here a large number of the In
sane in the state hospitals. Polk county
has a very fine insane asylum for the in
curables near Des Moines, where there are
now over 100 persons kept. It is much
cheaper to keep them there than to aend
them to the atate hospitals. Last year an
order waa procured from atate board of
control directing the superintendent of the
hospital at Mt. Pleasant to aend back to
Des Moines twenty-eight of the Incurable
Insane from Polk county. For some rea
son it waa never presented. Recently the
county officials bave applied to the super
intendent at Clarinda, where they are con
fined now, and have received a letter from
Superintendent Wltte, informing there that
none of the Polk county Insane at the
atate hospital are Incurably Insane, and he
therefore refuses to allow them to be sent
to an asylum.
Stopped Boxlna Boats.
Governor Cummins took prompt action
whoa he heard that there waa being ad
vertised in Davenport a aeries of prlxe
fights and boxing matches, and gave no
tice to the sheriff of the county not to al
low the fights. Accordingly, the sheriff
took action to stop them. One Harris, who
was In charge of a theater where the car
nival of sports wss advertised to take place,
defied the sheriff, and aold tlcketa to the
carnival. The sheriff arrested him under
the vagrancy act, and kept the theater
closed until after the time for the box
Ing matches. For several daya the past
week he haa kept the theater closed, In
this manner, and the governor today
learned that his efforts to op prlxe fight

The text of the appeal is as follows:
The Thomas Jefferson Memorial associa

We have here beautiful and costly trib

sailors, statesmen, physicians, inventors and
philanthropists, and the soldiers and Bail

American, Thomaa Jefferson.
We ask the people to contribute accord
ing to their ability to this memorial. Con
gress will not be asked for money, aa we.
rely solily upon the people, the young and
the old, the children and their parents, for
the success of the movement.
The character and cost of the proposed
memorial cannot now be stated, but it will
be appropriate to the tieatuess of the
man and the importance of the document
from which his nam is inseparable. Klgld
economy will be observed In the expenses
of carrying on the work. Every contributor

When a cold goes down into the
chest, a man or woman or child
ought to stop work right then
and there. Go home, soak the
feet in hot water and get into
bed. Rub the chest and throat
thoroughly with Omega Oil.
Soak a piece of flannel with the
Oil and lay it on the chest over
night. See to it
that the bowels
are kept open.
Stay in the house
several days, if
the trouble is
gone. The use of
Omega Oil brings
about a much
than any other remedy.
It is to be applied as
above every morning
and night until the
cold disappears. Never
allow a druggist to sell
you something else when you
ask for Omega Oil. Your
health is at stake, and your
money should command just
what you want to buy.
We have used Omega Oil frequently for
sore throats and chests. Being singers, we
appreciate hs value. We simply wish to
inform you of this fact. We are with Harry
Williams' Own Company, and have recom
mended your Oil to all the differenrmem
bers, and they think it wonderful.
