Council Bluffs and Omaha have 16,000 people
who une cocaine. By this la not meant
that all of these are what are known aa
cocaine "flenda." hut that they use the
drug In some form or other.
Thia startling declaration wan made last

made that the above number of users of
cocaine were to be found In South Omaha,
Council Bluffs and Omaha, but the state
ment also wss made that the number of
persons who are twins; the drug Is Increas
ing at an alarming rate. And to prove and
mphaKlse this assertion, Dr. Alkln related
a conversation which he had recently with
a Clerk In one of the Omaha drug stores,
in ' which the clerk stated that the first
thing he did each morning, the year round,
was to wrap np a large number of 6 and
10 cent packages of cocaine for each day's
supply. The statement also was made that
one of the local drug stores had recently

Dr. Alkln's address consisted largely of
a protest against the use of patent proprie
tary medicines. .It was held that many a
Godly father and mother used these articles
which all contain from 10 to 60 per cent of
alcohol and then they wonder how It la
that their boya have acquired the taste
for liquor. Alcoholism was defined as a
chronic poisoning resulting from the use of
alcohol, and that alcohol Is of use to no
ona and harmful to everyone. It was also
declared to be a fact that persons af
flicted with erysipelas, scarlet fever and
other well-known diaeases, have the bet
ter chance of recovery by two to one If
they have not been addicted to the use of
alcohol, than that class of people who

Pateat Medlclae Gives Taste.
During his lecture Dr. Alkln gave the
names, of many well-known patent medi
cines which are sold In this country and
also Indicated the amount of alcohol which
each contained, and these amounts ranged
from 10 to as high aa 70 per cent. The uni
versality with which cocaine Is used In
these, medicines was held to be largely re
sponsible for the Increasing number of
those who are addicted to the use of co
caine, which is superseding morphine.
In this connection it was held that Ine
briety is as much a dlaease as any other,
and among these tubercolosls was named.
Thia dread disease was numbering Its vic
tims by the thousands among the black
people of the south and If the present ratio
of Increase In this disease was maintained.
It would do more towards solving the race
Question than anything which might be
named or devised.
It was held that the liquor interests of the
country are largely responsible for the ex
tensive use of alcohol In patent and pro-
prletary medicines, since the desire for
liquor must be created and maintained In

of a hotel In Boscobel, Wis. Three men
who had grown weary of the devil and his
ways, and traveling men at that, conceived
the Idea of organizing a clan pledged to
Ood and the cause of Christianity. The
growth of the movement, he declared, had
been so marvelous that reference to It bad
become proverbial. The Gideons were' now
4,000 strong and Invaded Canada and had
seventy local camps In large r.ities and
twelve state camps.
With characteristic real and fervor
Charles Palmer told his hearers of the
work the Gideons had accomplished and
of the good they Intend doing in the future.
"We are an egotistical lot," he declared.
"We believe In ourselves, and what travel

POLICE SHUT OFF THE CROWDS
Sergeant Stops Farther Sale af
Tickets at Theater to Pre
Somebody In the crowd Jostling about
Manager Gonden in the lobby cf the Krug
theater yesterday afternoon shortly after
I o'clock said, very distinctly:
"You're full. Don't take any more."
Mr. Gonden was reared In the prohibition
precincts of Iowa and was as dry and
sober as a crop bulletin. Se he felt piqued
and turned to tell the man to go hence.
The man proved to be Police Sergeant
Cook. Therefore Mr, Gonden hesitated,
and while he was hesitating the officer ex
plained that the remark referred only to
the theater, saying:
"I've been through the house and Its got
all It can comfortably accommodate. You'll
have to stop selling tickets, as we have
had orders to prevent Jams hereafter In
all the theaters. Some woman or child
might get hurt If .your aisles get choked,"
The manager gased dubiously at the Jong
Ineup still trailing from the box office and
"We've got room for some up In the
balcony. I don't like to turn 'era away.'
Aa he spoke he toyed suggestively with
a cigar that looked to be about the kind
the sergeant would smoke If he didn't have
anything, else to do with his money. But
the officer stood pat.
"No, I've been up there," he said, "and
you've got all that'a coming tu you. You'll
have to shut m off." ...
Accordingly the gate closed and the wait,
ing patrons with the. ready money had to
go away or play the future openings.
It Is perhaps the first Instance of the
police stopping a sale of theater tickets in
Omaha, and It Is worthy of note Just at
this time, because It shows what a "show
town" this is becoming, or, indeed, has
become.- From the east and aouth reports

ELLSWORTH .COMES CLEAR

The Jury In Judge Kstelle's court which
had In hand the case of Charlea Ellsworth,
charged with the murder of David Houser
last September, after being out over
twnty-four hours. Saturday returned a
verdict of not guilty. The vote stood nine
for acquittal and three for manslaughter
during most of the time the Jury wns de
liberating on the enso.
Ellsworth lives In Council niufls. Ho has
alwsys resided with his parents, who stand
high In the community, and this was the
first trouble In which he has been con
cerned. Ellsworth's reputation hsd always
been fair. Houser and Ellsworth met st
a dance at Hill's roadhouse on the night
the murder occurred. They had been
known to each other before, and Houser,
like Ellsworth, resided. In Council Bluffs.
Houser took offense at Ellsworth dancing
with a woman with whom he was ac
quainted, and threatened Ellsworth. Ells
worth left the roadhouse shortly after
Houser, who had stopped by the roadside
and waited for Ellsworth's team to come
up. When the horses came alongside of
where he was . standing, Houser stepped
out Slid grabbed them by the heads. Ells
worth leaped out of the buggy and stabbed
him In the shoulder, severing an artery.
Houser was placed In a single buggy by
Charles Fosdlck, who was .with him at the
time the stabbing occurred, and sent on
with Irmtructlons to secure medical attend
ance aa soon as possible. The reason Fos
dlck did not accompany his friend wss
that he was with a woman who fainted
when the stabbing' occurred, and he re
mained by. the roadside to try and revive
her. After the woman came to, she and
Fosdlck started on . foot to Omaha. When
they reached the Missouri Pacific viaduct
on Sherman avenue they saw the buggy,
with Houser lying In the bottom, standing
by the side of the road. Fosdlck ran for
ward and found that Houser was uncon
scious from the Iobs of blood. He Jumped
in and drove the rig to the office of Dr.
Hobbs, on Sherman avenue. Houser died
about two minutes after being carried into
Ellsworth never denied that he delivered
the blow which killed Houser. but said
that he did It In self-defense. He was ar
rested in Council Bluffs when he drove Into

PROPERTY RIGHTS OF WOMEN
Subject Is Treated la Address Before
Philosophical Society by G. IS.
At the meeting of the Philosophical so
ciety, held at the Paxton hotel parlors yes
terday afternoon, George E. Prltchett de
livered a very Interesting address on the
"Property Rights of Women."
The general trend of Mr. Prltchett's -address
was to the effect that women en

system, this ' being particularly true of

right In the property of her husband, and
really stands In 'a' 'more Independent po
sition In that regard than her husband,
who cannot alienate any of his property
without the consent of his wife.
Owing to the lateness of the hour when
the meeting began, and considerable time
being taken up by Mr. Prltchett's address,
the paper was only briefly discussed. There
was a general de'slre that the paper, ' or
at least a digest of It. be published In the
near future. The political phases .of the
question were not treated upon nor did

The trains running between Red Oak and
Chicago are being operated by the block
system and without train orders, the Bur
lington being the first road In the west to
install this system, which goes a long way
towards preventing wrecks.
By the building of the double tracks
grades and curves have been eliminated
so far as possible. It is thought that when
tho system Is entirely double tracked be
tween Chicago and the river It will be the
cause of quite a reduction In the running
time of passenger trains. The trains will
be able to run at much greater speed when
the danger of collisions is eliminated by
the block system and the added safety of
having all trains on the same track run
ning in the same direct loa. The first re
