CHICAGO ORCHESTRA MAKES DECIDED HIT
Coadaetor Rosenbecker Pleases (he
Maale Loteri and Soloists and
Chorus Share In b Tri
umph and Applause.
Early members of the audience who got
to their seats In the, Coliseum yesterday
evening before the majority were treated to
connlderable of that preparatory tuning
and warmlna; up of instrument which so
whets the music lover's appetite of sound,
and to the fanciful so simulates the busy
barnyard; the clarionet, which gobbles In
Its lower register and crows above; the
bleating trombone and the bassoo, which
quack, and the French-horn cow. But
when Conductor Rosenbecker smote his
rack and waved forth the stream of sound
he began one of the best concerts which It
has been the pleasure of an Omaha audi
ence to hear. And the hearers knew and
warmed Into strong applause.
Nlcolal's "Merry Wives of Windsor" was
the overture, a composition from Its nature
always popular, and Rosenbecker wrought
with his violins In such delicate phrasing
aa almost to parallel the human voice, lie
conceded an encore, a graceful number
played with muted violins. During the
evening the orchestra gave three numbers
in addition to the accompaniments. First
were two movements from the Scandi
navian symphony of Cowen, the orchestra
tion noticeable, the allegro moderato con
ferring an unusual prominence to the reed
section. "The Irish," a symphony by Stan
ford, two movements of which followed
In Interpretation, held many suggestions of
the Celtlsh nature Its poetry and sudden
bursts of passion but did not particularly
please the audience. MacKensle's "Scot
tish Rhapsody" closed the program.
Rosenbecker Is Popnlar.
Omaha musicians endorse the opinion of
other cities In placing Mr. Rosenbecker
.among the first conductors in this country.
Vllls full orchestra numbers and aocompani
Li?nts are alike the pleasing product of ripe
Experience and native talent. His selec
tions have been Judicious, not playing a
heavy aymphony through, but giving di
versified and masterly movements from
various compOHltlons. And, moreover, the
numbers which he plays during the festival
are many of them practically new to
Omaha. We are familiar with the German
and Italian, but Scandinavian, Irish and
Scotch inspirations are novel.
There seems no question that our audi
ences like best the human voice and this
in solo. Each of. the three singers was
called back and repeated bowing would not
do and encores followed. The soloists
chose the declamatory music of the aria,
which is best fitted to the barnlike Coli
seum. Mrs. Genevieve Clark Wilson, her
very bearing proclaiming the finished ar
tist, sang an "Ave Maria" of Bruch in
German, receiving hearty applause and
flowers, and answering with "Kathleen
Mavourneen." Marked purity of style is
hers and a distinct enunciation. Mrs. Sue
Harrison Furbeck gave Gorlng-Thomaa'
"Ah, My Heart Is Weary," In a rich con
tralto voice of much quality and responded
with "Slumber Boat," by Gaynor, a lullaby
In marked contrast to her aria. She Is a
singer of much promise. Mr. Beresford
rendered the difficult aria from the Mes
siah, "Why Do the Nations' Rage?" and
responded tc the applause with a Gypsy
aoflgv'- He has- a rolling r which might not
be pleasing to some hearers.
Festival Choir Well I. Iked,
The festival choir sang twice and held
their popularity of the previous night, this
especially so of Mr. Kelly, who received
pink and white roses when he came on to
conduct. Plnsutl's "Parting Kiss" was
given delightfully, with a feeling which
held the audience. The first number, "The
Two Cupids," was also pleasing. In this
the ,tenors made an uneven reach for one
high and exposed "Cupid," but more than
compensated in the "Parting Kiss."

pictures made at the time the
eventa occur. This la one of
the functions of The Illustrated Bee.
Its staff photographer gets there at
the right time, and he always gets
the right kind of a picture to make
plain the point 'of the story. In the
forthcoming number will be found
another line collection of Illustrations
of local events, all made from photo
graphs taken right here. During the
last few days Omaha has undergone
considerable excitement In the way
of political and labor struggles, and
The Bee has kept up with them, giv
ing the very latest and only reliable
news; so also It gives the only pic
tures of these Important events. In
this respect as In others. The Bee Is
still unrivaled in the west.
STRIKE PICTURES HAVE THE LEAD,
for all the local interest ha
centered around the labor disturb
ances. The Bee staff photographer
was busy on the 1st of May, when all
the others were getting ready to be
Idle, and he secured a nice lot of
photographs, showing the men going
out from the different places, showing
the effects of the strike In the way of
unfinished buildings, and other In
teresting features. Along with the
pictures Is a conservative review of
the situation. This feature of the
paper Is alone worth more than the
price asked for the whole. It gives
better than a volume of print an Idea
of the local labor situation today.
WHAT OUR LIBRARIES ARE DOING is
a special article on a popular
feature of the work of the public
libraries, by Dr. Victor Rosewater of
the Omaha Public Library Board. It Is
Illustrated from photographs made In
the Omaha Public library and Omaha
public schools. Mr. Frank G. Car
penter writes from Frankfort-on-the
Main giving an account of the origin
and rise of the Rothschilds, and tell
ing of the wide and varied ramifi
cations of their Immense banking
Interests, which began In a very
ordinary way. "Beautiful Models in
Art Photography" deals with a new
branch of artistic activity, and Is
illustrated from photographs of some
of the most noted of the beautiful
women so engaged; then there Is
another Installment of the Crockett
serial; and two pages full of matter
especially for the women; a special
story on the women workers In the big
hotels, and a special story on a race
of men who dress and act like women.
A short complete story rounds out the
fiction, and the regular departments
of the paper are all well filled. In
addition the usual number of Inde
pendent pictures will be found, mak
ing the number complete In every
detail. If you are not now a sub

Citiieni in Mass Meeting Ditoasa the Hew
High School Proposition.
BOARD GETS SUPPORT IT NEEDED
Sentiment All On Way and That la
Favor of the Immediate Con
straetlon of aa Ample High
In response to a call for a mass meeting
to consider the matter of more school room
about three doxen representative citlxens
gathered In the assembly room ol the high
school building snd discussed the question
last night. Although all of the newspapers
had given notices of the meeting and many
personal letters had been sent out by the
committee on buildings and grounds the
attendance was small. Dana Morrill acted
as chairman. He first called upon Superin
tendent McLean to give facts and figures
In regard to the condition of the schools.
Prof. McLean told of the enrollment of 207
pupils In the high school and said that
fifty-seven classes had to be accommodated
In what might be called eight rooms. He
considered the ventilation entirely Inade
quate and called attention to the condition
of the assembly room where the meeting
In his argument for a new high school
building Superintendent McLean said that
from the sidewalk to the assembly room Is
seventy two steps. This he considers too
many. Then again he said that the halls
tn the present building are entirely too nar
row. Taking each department through the
professor showed those present that the
building now occupied by the high school
Is not adequate. While he made no sug
gestions, he told of the actual conditions
existing and offered to show those present
through the building to substantiate his
When Superintendent McLean concluded
It was evident that nearly every one In the
room was In favor of the construction of a
suitable high school building.
Chairman Morrill called upon Colonel C.
M. Hunt for remarks, and the colonel
favored voting bonds to provide sufficient
room for pupils of the public schools.
A. L. Bergqulst, a former member of the
board, was asked for an opinion. Mr. Berg,
qulst said that he favored spending IIOJ.OOO
on the construction of a high school build
ing on the site already owned by the dis
trict, but he did not favor bonds. He sug
gested an Increase In taxation Instead of an
issue of bonds.
Thomas J. O'Nell favored the Immediate
construction of a high school building and
so did Colonel J. B. Watklns. Other speak
era followed In the same strain. It Is more
than likely that the Board of Education
will submit a proposition to the people to
vote $100,000 In bonds for a high school
building and turn the present building Into
a ward school.
Many of those present did not favor the
Idea of the city buying the present high
school property for a city hall, as It Is re.
ported that the building Is not worth as
much ss might be demanded by the board.
although all admit that the site Is an Ideal
one for a city hall.
The meeting was called for the purpose ef
securing an expression from the people on
the rubject of bonds, and It Is now up to the
board to decide whether the proposition
will be submitted or not.
Dirty Area Ways.
Several times within the last month the
attention of the city authoiltles has been
called to the condition 6f areaways In the
business portion of the city. Many of the
areaways are filled with rubbish of all
kinds, especially papers and other Inflam
mable material. Inspector Jones has served
a number of notices to clean up, but he
merely wastes postage, for no attention Is
paid to his orders. Now that the police and
fire departments are under control of a
board there Is to be a cleaning up of the
areaways. Chairman Vansant of the Fire
and Polloe board said last night that at the
meeting of the board to be held Tuesday
night the matter will be brought up. It It
understood that Chief Garrett of the fire
department will be directed to make an In
spection of all areaways In the business
portion of the city and to serve notices to
clean up within twenty-four hours. If tin
orders of the chief are not obeyed arrests
will surely follow.
Viaduct Considered Dangerous.
The flooring of the Q street viaduct Is
considered to be In a dangerous condition.
Teamsters say that the cracks between
planks are so wide in some places as to
pull the shoes off horses. The bridge Is In
such a condition that street cars are com
pelled to run slow, In order to prevent
vibration as much as possible. All the rail.
road companies, supposed to keep the
bridge In repair have to ray is that the lack
of material prevents them rrom maaing re

Mrs. Mary E. Teats, Rational Lecturer
of the Organisation, l)e
llrers an Address.
But a small audience was present at
Kountse Memorial church last evening to
listen to the address of Mrs. Mary E. Teats,
national lecturer for the Woman's Chris
tian Temperance union.
Mrs. Teats said In part: "I regret thtvt
some of our Christian people cannot better
employ themselves than In sitting down and
shuffling a pack of cards and calling it a
social diversion. We cannot serve God and
Mammon. Progressive euchre Is but pro
gression from a mother's parlor to the
penitentiary. There ,1s no difference from
a prise of beaten gold in the form of a
souvenir spoon in the parlor of a Chris
tian home to that of a beaten or impressed
piece of gold or silver in the form of money
that Is won or lost In the gambling den. A
boy once said to his mother, who chlded
him for gambling: 'Why, mamma, I did
but what you did. I won a $10 gold piece
at the club, while you lost a gold spoon of
the same value at progressive euchre.' The
spiritual cause of Christ is at low ebb In
the progressive euchre or whist parlor. Just
as much as It Is in the lowest gambling
"No organisation has done more for the
cause of the church of Christ than the
Women's Christian Temperance union. Its
mission is the upbuilding of the home and
the perpetuation of its beauty and glory.
Its worst enemy Is the saloon. Its Initials
are the synonym of annoyance to the sa
loons. They characterize it w-omen con
stantly t-ormentlng u-s. It was a woman
who caused the state of Kansas to enact
the prohibition laws of that state, and it
was a woman who compelled the enforce
ment of those laws by her hatchet."
Following Mrs. Teat's address Miss Grace
Rummel of Omaha, one of the winners of
the Demorest gold medal prizes, gave a
very impressive recitation upon "Beauty of
Womanhood In the Christian Home."
The evening's exercises closed with a
number of those present signing the white
ribbon pledge, and the announcement of
further meetings to be addressed by Mrs.
Teats during the several days she will yet
