Claim of Taxpayers' 1 Inb. A favorable report was made by the finance committee on the claim of the Tax payera" club for the restitution of $245 pent in architect and other fees for tho Capitol avenue market house. The bill waa ordered recommitted to come up before the council in general committee meet ing. An ordinance Introduced last summer and providing for a contract with the Omaha Street Sign company for the erec tion of free street signs bearing adver tising matter, was placed on file. The city already has a contract for satisfactory atreet algns which are now being erected. The claim of Elizabeth V. Van nrocklln, which Councilman Mount declared, occu pies more pages of council records than any other personal Injury claim ever known, was agnln placed on fie. making the fourth time this performance haa been gone through with. Tho woman waa hurt by falling on the sidewalk at. Eleventh and Harney streets and the claim grew from 11,000, when It was begun early In 1899 to 115,500, for which amount Julius S. Cooloy atarted ault In the federal court. Ha wanta to compromise now for $5,000. Improver Heard From. .A communication from the Southwest Improvement club stated that that or ganization la opposed to new fire engine house and gnrbage crematories, as "Omaha Is sufficiently In debt and we can wait longer." The Sllcntlum association. Including 170 of the deaf, auks help from the city in securing a hall In which to meet, and Mra.

Samuel I. Gordon's bill for salary for January, 1903, aa police Judge, waa sub mitted, saluted and dispatched. A Serloua Mistake. To the average man it aeema childish to doctor a cold, and unless It becomes par ticularly annoying to him little or no atten tion la given It. Often a cold contracted In the winter la allowed to run until the open ing of spring. This la a grave mistake, aa even though the warm weather may bring relief, the ayatem la thereby weakened and rendered susceptible to disease. A cold should never be neglected, whether it be a child or an adult who la afflicted, aa health and often life la risked. A bottle of Cham berlain'a Cough Remedy, coating but a amall amount, will bring apeedy relief and all dangerous consequences will be avoided. Publish your legal notices In The Weekly Bee.

MUSIC AND MUSICIANS tiabrilowltsrh Piano Recital. ' Osslp Gnbrllowltsch, the Russian pianist, In a recital at Kounze Memorial church. Program: PART I. Rach-Tauslg .Toccato and Fugue (D Minor) Beethoven Op. 2S Bonatl (Pastorate) Allegro, Andante, Scherzo, Rondo. FART II. Chopin Impromptu (F Sharp Major) Etude (C Major) Prelude (D Flat Major) Scherzo H Minor) PART III. Oabrllowltsch Op. 2 Oavotte Arensky "Preg de la Mer" esqulsie Henselt SI olaeau J etals Kubinetein Op, 16 Valse "Lie Bail" Osslp Oabrllowltsch, the Russian pianist, came very close to the hearta of the 400 mu sic lovers who heard hla recital at Kountze Memorial church last night. Though It was his first appearance here, and despite the fact that he risked all by departing emphatically from the usual and expected array of recital selections, hla work so thrilled the aoul of the man that Garbril owltsch won Immediate aDd fervent com mendation. Hla all-pervadlDg Individuality was not to be resisted. It waa by no means the stereotyped pro gram of the virtuoso that Oabrllowltsch played. There waa no time-honored ae. quence of List, Schumann, Mozart and Chopin. In fact, only the latter of these waa represented. The program throughout waa a aerlea of bold sallies from the con ventional. Its chief feature waa that it was Intensely classical. Gabrllowltsch off ered numbera that Paderewski or Hoffman have never played on American tours. He even tempted fate to the uttermost by open ing his program with a number by . Bach, that real test of a pianist, yet a composer to whom the American public haa never taken kindly. Technique Is subordinate to melody with Gabrllowltsch. -He la fundamentally lyrlr In all hla work. Tct he possesses the un usual combination of Are and temperament with delicacy of touch. The tone coloring of the man la perhaps the most remark able detail of all. Hla la a subtle touch. capable of an endless number of variations, from the caress to the hammer stroke. In the Beethoven selection was this moat ap parent, aa the pianist used fully twenty different ways of striking the keys In that rendition, yet retained the form of the aonatl with remarkable perfection through out. The , number waa well calculated to exhibit bla great versatility and alao his comprehensive Interpretation. Many European maatera consider this youthful planiat the greatest of al! Chopin renderera. This opinion Is understood after hearing Part II of laBt ntght'a pro gram. The Chorln selections embraced ad mirably the scope of that author, and here again la Gabrllowltsch the pioneer. Weak and efflminate in feature and body, Chopin yet had the aoul of a. lion, and this plan 1st put that into the numbers he played. From a remarkable portrayal of delicacy In the Impromptu be swerved to a royal dash and fire In the acherzo. This Chopin group waa the gem of the program. Gabrllowltsch's fhotto would seem to be "No mannerisms; no encores," for he aedu lously avoids both. His athletic figure la held at eaay yet dignified poise at the piano, and he plays distinctively with hia bands Four times was he recalled to the platform after each of hla earlier numbera, yet he refused to play an encore till repeated calls following the Chopin compelled it. Then he gave Schumann'a "Romance in F Sharp Major No. 2." The pianist's own gavotte waa bubbling with youth and enthusiasm, and reminded one much of the minuets of Beethoven. The Arensky number was marked chiefly I tv bringing out hla lyric tendencies. The Henselt waa a delicate breath, tho zephyr of the evening. The soloist closed with the stupendous Rubensteln valse, where hla great strength and fire came Into full play Though but 25 yeara of age, this planiat la already capable of vast depth, as was shown In the tremendoua Bach number that led the program. It ia eaay to sympathize, at least, with the many predictions aa to hla final pre-eminence in hia work. F.1W.' Ball. Spectators' ticketa. to the Elka masquer ade ball and entertainment, to ba held at Ak-Sar-Ben hall February 23, may be pur chased at Meyer A Dillon's and Beaton McGinns drug store. Two new features will be shown during the progress of the ball one being the minuet dancers, the other being the children's dance. The Jub ilee singing club holds nightly rehearsals every evening.

ADVANCES PRICE Of WASHING SHIRTS Om ad nath Omaha l.aaadrymea aid to Have Joined Hands to Roost Trices na Their Work, Those who near "boiled" shlrta and cuffs and collars sent through a laundry will be met with a surprise soon, aa'the price haa been raised all along the line. The laundry where shirts were done up for 7 cents la now a thing of the past, and 10 centa will be the universal charge. Other garments will be charged for accordingly. Thla raise Is due, so It is atated, to the Increase in price of laundry supplies. Washbouse men say that starch has gone up, and that sheet, lng used has also advanced in price. The advance In aupplies makes It compulsory to advance the price on the work turned out. While the laundries do not counte nance the Idea of a trust. It is a fact that there Is an agreement. In South Omaha to advance prices. Letters have been aent out from Omaha announcing to saloon men that on March 1 the price for bar towels would be In creased $1 a month. Thla matter was ta ken up yesterday by the Saloonkeepers' union, and it waa decided that the liquor dealers in the two Otnahas would establish a laundry of their own,' and thus be inde pendent of the trust. While thla latter matter la not in shape to discuss at the present time. It Is underatood that at a meeting to be held next week funda will be raised for the purpose, and that an In dependent laundry will aoon be atarted by the unlona mentioned. On the other hand, the Individual who ta compelled to send clothing to the laundry to be washed will have to pay the price designated by the combination. There la another peculiar feature of the trust, and that is If a man who has a laundry route la discharged he cannot be, employed by any other laundry for a period of six months. This la done, it is stated, to prevent one popular solicitor from going to work for another concern. The Laundry Workers' union proposes taking this matter up and will ask for a thorough Investlgatbn and endeavor to have thla clause omitted from the agreement said to have been made by employers in lcundrles In the two Omahas. Ilalpln HnKtllna Honda. Edward Halpln, who waa elected asses sor for the Sixth ward, has for aome months paat been employed In Omaha, and now ves there. He was trying yesterday to secure a bond as one of hla bondsmen who ad signed at first, failed to qualify. Now the question la raised aa to whether Hal pin can make the assessment In South Omaha in the spring, aa he Is practically a nonresident. It Is understood that objec tions will be raised In case ne cornea back to South Omaha and attempts to make the assessment. No one knows of Hatpin's ever having paid any taxes to speak of, and this will be against him when It comes to a show-down on April 1. Sheep Barns Completed. The big sheep barns destroyed by fire on December 25 at the Union stock yards have been rebuilt. Last night Chief Engineer King of the Stock Tarda company stated that the big north barn la practically done. All It needs Is a few finishing touches. Sheep were housed In it yesterday, ao that It ia really conaldered completed. The big barn and the annex will hold 80,000 sheep. In the rebuilding some improvements over the barna destroyed by fire have been- made. There is a covered run way from the un loading chutes to the barns, and this aids greatly in the care of sheep coming in off the range. While the shipments of sheep were not reduced to any extent on account of the burning of the barna word has been sent out all over the west that the new barns are now ready and big shipments arO expected shortly. Deeds Filed Yesterday. Deeds granted by the city for a portion of Thirty-aixth street were filed yesterday by the Burlington road, and now the city officials will proceed to file the deeds granting to the city a portion of Boyd atreet. When theae claims have been duly registered the transfer will be closed. In the meantime, the Burlington keeps mov ing along with Its grading machines. It is expected that the heaviest part of the work will be finished by April t. Maa-lo City Gossip. So far no date haa been aet for the nra. Umlnary hearing of Patrick Shea, Mr. and Mra.

A physician pots the query: ' Have you never noticed In any large restaurant at lunch or dinner time the large number of hearty, vlgoroua, old men at the tables, men whose agee run from 60 to 80 years, many of them bald and all perhaps gray, but none of them feeble or eenlle? ' . Perbapa the spectacle la ao common aa to have escaped your observation or com ment, but nevertheless it Is an object lea son which means something. If you will notice what those hearty pld fellows are eating you will observe that they are not munching bran crackers nor gingerly picking their way through a menu card of new tangled health foods: on the ! contrary, they seem to prefer a Juicy roast of beef, a properly turned loin of mutton, and even the deadly broiled lobpter Ib not altogether Ignored. The point of all this Is that a vigorous old ak? dependa upon good digestion and plenty of wholesome food, and not upon dieting and an endeavor to live upon bran crackers. There Is a certain class of food cranks who seem to believe that meat, coffee and many other good things are rank poisons, but theae cadaverous, sickly looking indi viduals are a walking condemnation of their own theories. The matter in a nutshell is that if the stomach secretes the natural digestive Juices In sufficient quantity, any wholesome food will be properly digested; If the stom ach does not do bo, and certain foods cause distress, one or two of Stuart's pyspepsla Tablets after each meal will remise all difficulty, because they supply Just what every weak stomach lacks, pepsin, hydro chloric acid, diastase and nux. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets do not act upon the bowels and In fact are not strictly a medicine, aa they act almost entirely upon the food eaten, digesting It thoroughly and thus gives a much needed rest, and giving an appetite for the next meal. Of people who travel nine out of ten use Stuart's Dyspepsia Tableta, knowing them to be perfectly safe to use at any time, and also having found out by experience that they are a safeguard against indigestion in any form, and eating aa they have to, at all hours and all kinds of food, the traveling public haa for years pinned their faith to Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets.
