Building Inspector Withnell, who ex. officio I. one of the three members of the Board of Public Works, announced yes terday that he would make no effort to Interfere with the .appointment of employes made by the late board and confirmed by the council While Comptroller Lobeck, the second democratic member of the board, refused to talk,, It is understood that he hag receded . from the reported plan either to block public work or control tha patronage. ' Inspector Withnell said: "I am not dis posed to complicate matters by insisting upon a new list of employes, and I am not willing to tie up the work of the depart ment In the effort to have them confirmed by the council. So far as the legal phase, of the question are concerned, I know noth ing about them. I have looked over the list of employe, appointed and eon firmed and find that the men are capable and efficient, and that a number of them are democrats. "Further than this, I wish It understood that I desire to work In harmony with Mayor Moore, and the whole administra tion, and to act In such a way as to best serve the city. As to the assistant building Inspector, 1 would, like to have a man of my own selection, as I will be held respon sible for his performance." This positive statement haa cleared away tha clouds that were threatening to spill a storm over the public works department, as Withnell with City Engineer Rosewater will constitute a majority of the board, thereby defeating any disturbing po'.lcy which Comptroller Lobeck might Inaugu rata. The Board of Public Work, had a quiet and brief session yesterday. Comptrol ler 'Lobeck 'suggested that the May pay roll, amounting to $3,358, be referred to the city attorney for an opinion as to whether payment should be made, as the man had worked without councllmanlo confirmation An adjourned meeting will be held at I o'clock Monday afternoon to receive the opinion and take action.

Omaha St I Ida fetaraoo, Omaha A Right at the outset let there be regis tered a protest agalnat the taste of the authoress In choosing London as the. seen, of her very successful play. Incident, such a. the one on which It. action are based are not uncommon In any clime; people quite a. .mart a. any she presents might be found on this side; men as wesk as Arnold Wlnnlfrlth have been found by other authors In New Tork (note the In stance of Nick Van Alstyne and hi. singu larly suggestive prototype, both In name and Character. Dick Van Buren); and more potent than any other reason, Mr. Good win would not have been forced to parade his unquestionable Americanism, aa the utterance, of an Englishman. Otherwise the play well merits the attention thst ha. been given it. It is an old theme, but Is handled with much tact and In a manner decidedly original. Other authors have found It ronvenlegt to remove by death or some other means equally as effective the main offender before relieving his scape goat of the charge, but Mis. Ryley boldly sends the offended wife and the offending husband out to face their wrecked honey moon and to mak an endeavor by patience to patch up their love again. This might not have been possible If the disclosures had come after a few years of wedded bliss. In other ways the theme Is handled with equal daring and with an adroitness that Is quite an acceptable substitute for the efforts commonly made to excuse or Justify the conduct of one or the other of the guilty ones. In this Instance the man simply admits that h. is tired of his play thing and the girl accepts the condition as a matter of course and goes out Into the world to look up a situation. The dialogue sparkles In spots, with no ap pearance of an effort at epigrams and no approach to homilies on any topic. It Is mildly satirical at times, but not enough to give any flavor of acerbity to Its smooth flow of all but unrestrained humor. In a word. It Is quite what might happen In real life. Mr. Goodwin takes the part of a brother who temporarily allows himself to become the victim of a mistake to shield his sis ter's hspplness, snd who promptly rebels when his own happiness comes Into the play. His main departure from the Good win we have known In other plays Is In the fact that he Is quieter, mora subdued. In his methods. He doesn't make any noise. Isn't boisterous at any time, and still gives to the quiet ending of the acts a strength that Is really Impressive. And he absolutely refuse, to be serious, even when the action of the play would not suffer by an exhibi tion of sobriety of conduct. Miss Tlllbury. who Is supporting Mr. Goodwin on hi. present tour. Is decidedly clever. Her part Is a small one, but out of It she makes a good deal and show. evidence of ability that would easily take care of a much more exacting role than her present one. Miss Dean Is a charming Ingenue, and acquits herself with credit. If anything Is to be said of Miss Irwin's pres entation of the part of ' the girl who Is toyed with and cast aside, it must be that she accept, the fate with a stolidity that seem, hardly natural. Fred Tlden gives to the part of a ead a degree too much ot caddlshness. A little show of spirit at time, would relieve the situation, and prob ably mora nearly realise what the authoress had In mind. Other members of the cast have been selected with care, and the com pany as a whole Is well qualified to sup port the star. The staging Is adequate, artistic And beautiful In ensemble and de tail, too. The Boyd theater wss very well filled last night with a fashionable audience and one that generously expressed Its apprecia tion of the play and the players. "The Altar of Friendship" will be gltien at a mat inee and evening performance today. THREE MEN UP FOR BURGLARY Oae Case Ceatlaned aad the Other Two Seat te District Ceart. Three men charged with burglary were brought before ' Judge Berka yesterday. J. W. Smith la charged with stealing MO worth of goods from the residence of C. L. Nelson.

The following officers were elected; President, J. II. Evans; vice president. G. W. Llnlnger; superin tendent, W. R. Adams; secretary, Mary C. Peake. The old committees were renamed. Considerable business of minor Impor tance was transacted.

A resolution was passed by the bosrd authorizing Superintendent Adams and such commissioners ss cared to go to at- j tend the annual convention of the Ameri can Park and Outdoor Art association at Buffalo, July 7 and 9. The board discussed and plsnned work on the Central boulevard, which will be done as soon as the labor troubles are settled, the action of the council In making the special assessment levy to pay for the ground appropriated being the last legal ob stacle that stood In the way of immediate consummation of the scheme. PUSH SADDLE CREEK SEWER Policy of West Omaha Imprnvemeat Oak aad Its Plaa'of Aetloa. The West Omaha Improvement club, at a well attended meeting Thursday night, decided to make the completion of the Saddle creek sewer its chief concern and to drop all other public matters until this Improvement is accomplished. With this end in view It was decided to Invite City Engineer Rosewater, Councilman Hunting ton of the Ninth ward and the council paving and sewerage committee to attend the next club meeting at Forty-first and" Dodge streets Thursdsy night. The pre liminaries for th. sewer are in such shape that proceedings to let the contract can be started, but the city officer, deem It wise to wait until the city has an official newspaper and legal publication of the ad vertisement csn be made.

Then you have contagious parasite disease, unpleasant, un healthy and one that will eventually lead to baldness. To cure It you- must destroy the parasite that eats at the root of the hair. The only preparation for destroying these germs Is Newbro's Herplclde. Charles Klein of Laramie, Wyo., says: "Herplclde allayed the Itching, cured the dandruff and atopped my hair's falling out; and It I. bringing a new crop of hair."

"The rains have given corn a serious set back, but have helped amall grain," aald Senator Umatead of Fullerton, who Is In the city on business. "Som. corn will hav. to be replanted, but unles. the rains con tinue ss bad as they have been .1 don't look for much replanting. A great deal of corn that otherwise would have been planted ta not yet in the ground because of thla un usual wet season snd that already In Is, of course, retarded. However, the old saying Is that a late spring brings a late fall, ao we are not worrying yet over the con ditions. Small grain looks well and if we start In to worrying over the corn we might juat as well rejoice over the small grsla." AFFAIRS AT SOUTH OMAHA Packers and Labor Leaders Hold Two Con ference!
