aA this day and generation, when the
religious linea of demarcation are soften
ing, it becomes the pleasure, not only of
the Catholic but the non-Catholic, to listen
to such a. scholarly and interesting speaker
as ttlshop Keane, who last evening at Mie
Sacred Heart churoh, Twenty-third and
Blmiey streets, answered his own ques
tion, "Why. Am I a Catholic T" -
Bixhopv liteane Is conducting a mission at
the Sacred Heart church. The mission will
be closed Saturday morning, when Bishop
Keane goes to Iowa. '
"Jesus Christ, came as the revelation of
a doctrine, as a personified Christianity.
H began His career by selecting a few
men, who were the apostles, to whom He
aid He would be with liiem all days, even
anto the end of the world. lie commanded
them to tfcacn the gospel to all men," began
Bishop Kaana- . .
Cathollo the Mather Chnreh.
, "For the apostles Ha created a home for
religion and established through them a
corporate body for the propagation of the
revelation ' made by the Father through
Him. He ha to provide a guarantee of
authenticity of that religion, which He did
through the apostles by Investing in them
the gift' of Infallibility. This treasure of
Qod's revelation was transmitted to the
apostolistlc mind, as Christ never wrote a
line nor commanded one to be written. The
church flourished for 100 years after Christ
without script or parchment. To the Shep
herd boy, who could neither read nor
write, God sent an angel, and today,
through the Catholic church, which Is the
mother and universal church, Ood's mes
sage is delivered to those In the desert as
Human Head Necessary.
"The Cathollo church la historical Chris
tianity and we are thankful for this in
contestable gift. The Cathollo church Is
not a church of any national temperament,
but the church of the world. Man ' feels
his Insufficiency to make amends for the
wrongs he has done, so the churoh becomes
hta 1 mediator.; PauJ protested against
the, Individualising of Christianity. The
apostle pictured the church as a body, with
Christ the head. As the Catholic church
today must deal with human btlngs it
must have a human head on earth, which
Head Is practically Infallible, even as we
consider the supreme court of the United
States a practically Infallible body. Thero
Is not today an office In the Catholic priest
hood that Christ did not transmit to His
apostles. The Catholic church Is not merely
a ministerial corporation, but a magisterial
one, being legislative, judicial and execu
tive in Its authority."

H. J. Condon, formerly city editor of The
Bee and now with the Bulletin of the
League of American Municipalities, Is in
the city for a fortnight's visit with his par
ents, Mr. and Mrs. U N. Oonden. While
Mr. Oondon makes his headquarters In Chi
cago, he Is almost constantly on the road
collecting Information for his publication.
During the past year he has Investigated
the telephone situation In more than fifty
cities, and is therefore In position to speak .
interestingly on the subject of the double
telephone proposition which Is now attract
ing some attention In Omaha.
"Before Omaha admits a second telep
hone company," says Mr. Oonden. "It
would be wise to ascertain the results of
competition In this business In other cities.
I have been reading some of the state
ments recently published In the Omaha
papers by A. B. Hunt, and If It were not
for the obvious fact that they are Intended
to mislead the people In a matter of great
Importance they would be funny. Mr.
Hunt promises that telephone competition
will bring to Omaha exactly the things
that it has utterly failed to bring to the
cities which have tried It. His first and
most alluring promise Is a reduction of
rates amounting to from 26 to 83ft per
cent. In the fifty or more cities In which
I have Investigated this matter I have not
found one In which competition has re
sulted In a reduction of rates. The effect
of competition on rates Is Just the oppo
site from what Mr. Hunt says It Is, for
in the cities where they have two telephone
systems the users get the additional ex
pense of the second 'phone, while the com
petition does not reduce the expense of the
"Mr .Hunt's next Important promise Is
that competition will Improve the service.
This has not been one of the results of
competition In other cities, and I can't un
derstand why It should be so here, where
the existing telephone service Is absolutely
up to date. If Mr. Hunt should take the
trouble to get the facts he would find that
competition. Instead of Improving the ser
vice, merely complicates the service.
"Another -theory advanced by Hunt la
that the advent of an Independent exchange
In Omaha will bring better service to and
from the surrounding country. In my
travels I have Interviewed hundreds of
business men on the merits of the Bell
and the Independent services, and the most
severe critics of the Independents are the
Jobbers. and others who have frequent use
for the toll lines. The wholesale grocers
of St. Joseph went so far as to have the
Independent 'phones removed from their
places of business, not on account of the
expense, but simply because the Independ
nt toll aervloe proved an Injury to their
business. Mr. Letts of the Letts-Spencer
Jobbing house, told me it was impossible
to take an order over the Independent
toll lines without' making mistakes, and
these errors proved too costly. Omaha
Jobbers are not likely to lose any country
trade to St. Joseph, at least by not hav
ing the Independent 'phone.
"The most significant fact In connection
with this matter, however. Is that the Bell
companies have succeeded In maintaining
their rates and Increasing their business
Jn nearly every city where they have en
countered competition. Mr. Hunt will most
likely dispute this fact, but then It Is ap
parent that Mr. Hunt Is like a great many
other professional franchise seekers in that
he doesn't care as much for facts as he
does for personal profit."

Every lady In the land Is more than In
terested in the advent of fall millinery. It
Is one of her most effulgent experiences,
a something to which she looks forward
with the liveliest Interest and It Is a satis
faction. Indeed, to have right at one's hand
an exposition that has no peer In the
progressive west. A visitor In the guise
of a critic, not Immune, however, from the
seductive fallings of femininity, visited
Thursday morning the Bennett Company's
display, for the double purpose of satiat
ing curiosity and learning something of
the trend of millinery art.
The excellent arrangements Include day
light fitting rooms, wherein each buyer
can have seclusion with uninterrupted at
tention and the assurance of the proper
"meeting" of style In costume and hat and
figure. In this respect the "Sinclair" mil
linery department of the Bennett store Is
unique. It Is said by the obliging and
courteous manager, Mr. E. R. Beach, that
on special display days over l.SOO hats are
shown, every one of which Is either sold
or put under cover by the end of the day,
and an entire new recherche brought out.
But of the characteristics of fall mil
linery the all absorbing matter for milady,
it is evident at a glance that fall millinery
models are distinctive, even to a revolu
tion In styles from fall Ideas of former
years. The FTencri designers are showing , stimulus for future patriotism:

GRANITE MEMORIAL TO DEAD OF WA

sion and Addresses Made by Jadge
Faweett, UOTfrnor Mickey
A perfect day marked the Impressive
ceremonies Incident to the dedication and
unveiling of the handsome granite monu
ment erected to the memory of the union
soldiers and sailors of the civil war at
Forest Lawn cemetery Friday afternoon.
The monument occupies a commanding po
sition on the crest of the hill immediately
south of the main entrance to the ceme
tery. The members of. the Orand Army
of the Republic and old soldiers generally,
first assembled at the gateway and marched
In a body, numbering about Ik), headed by
a fife and drum corps, to the soldiers' plot.
where they formed in front of the plat
form which had been erected to the east
of the monument, from which the ritual
sen-ices were carried out.
On the platform were grouped Dr. S. K.
SpauUllng as commander and president of
the day; T. J. Crelgh, Junior vice com
mander; Mrs. Anna Yule, president of the
Monument association; Miss Clara Feenan,
secretary of the association; Governor
Mickey, Adjutant General Culver, Judge
Jacob Faweett, orator of the day; Mrs.
Harriot Wilcox, department president of
the Nebraska Woman's Kellef corps; Mrs.
Camilla Elliott, department president of
the Ladies cf the Grand Army of the Re
public, and other members of the monu
ment committee. The platform was sur
rounded with palms and potted plants and
decorated with the national colors. The
monument was entwined with asparagus
fern and smllax. the statue at the top
being veiled with a flag.
Music Opens Ceremonies'.
The Elks' quartet, consisting of C. R.
Miller, C. P. Morearlty. W. H. Brown and
T. F. Swift, who also occupied positions
on the platform, opened the ceremonies by
singing "Tenting on the Old Camp Ground.
A brief address by Mrs. Anna Tule. presl
dent of the Ladles' Union Veterans' Monu
ment Association of Douglas County, fol
lowed, in which she gave a brief history of
the monument and, continuing, said to Dr.
S. K. Ppauldlng, president of the day:
"This association was organized In 1897 for
the purpose of erecting a monument to the
soldiers of lRfll to 18C5. It Is not all of what
we hoped could be done, but we did what
we could. The war which It seeks to com
memorate lasted four years and we have
been eight years In trying to raise the
means to erect this shaft. It Is built In the
memory of the men who fought for the flag
and the men who died for the flag. What
these men did will live forever. Therefore,
Mr. President, on behalf of our association,
I have the honor and pleasure to present
this monument to you as the representative
of the union soldiers. In whose memory It

When Mrs. Tule had -concluded her ad

a large American flag, was unveiled by Miss
Emma Feenan. and the handsome shaft
stood forth In Its grey-white beauty.
Dr. Spauldlng said In response: "In the

hats, large and small, which at first glance
seem ludicrously short in front, a style
that requires an effort to bring forth' one's
admiration on one's part; but when this
Is gained Its elegance and modishness are
beyond question. To bring out this short
front effect the back of the hat Is long,
rather severe, thus forcing Its peculiar
characteristic. The blendlngs and color
ings for fall are exquisite and beyond com
pare. The soft grays and un metals, the
mulberry shades, the Alice blues, the em
erald and the fascinatingly changeable
brown-greens, have all a unique. Inter
esting and Impressive attractiveness. And
then there are the staple blacks and
whites. Indicative of serlous-mlndedness
and old-world gentility. These are models
shown from the most eminent arbiters of
fashion: Llchensteln, Henri Hernial, Nlles,
Waters, Burley and others, which are new
names and own their introduction to a
strong promise of making a hit. The sea
son's earliest and sauciest little novelty
was the special exhibit, though It might
deserve a better name. It is called the
"Johnny Jones," the lineal descendant and
successor of the turban polo, or its chum,
the irrepressible "Tommy Atkins," both
Introduced by "Sinclair" for spring busi
ness. And there's the Kitty Barry, the
Anna Held and many other exclusive num
bers whose claims to fame rest upon a
quaint inimical and characteristic touch or
twist. Something really new In western
millinery Is worth noting. It Is a beautiful
showing of French Jewelry novelties, re-
minurui 01 tne days or the second em
pire, when Antoinette and Eugenie were
the belles and spirit personified of France.

Then followed the formal ritual of charg
lng the representative 'of the Cemetery as.
sorlatlon to care tot this shaft and lot
where reposed the dead soldiers and sailors
of the union cause.
T. F. Crelgh, as the representative of the
Cemetery association, replied that such
care would be taken. He stated that In
1SS9 the association had donated a plot of
26,153 square feet, sufficient for the burial
of 601 dead, and another plot had been set
apart outside this circle for the exclusive
use of such soldiers who desired to pur
chase burial lots adjacent to the larger
plot and under the shadow of this monu
ment. A guard of honor was then ap
pointed, consisting of it. W. Nicholson, A.
J. Jurgens and W. R. Cameron, to take
position near the monument. The flag was
then hoisted to the top of the flngstaff and
the Elks' quartet led off with singing "The
Star Spangled Banner," In which the vet
erans and visitors Joined with fervor. The
ritual services were then continued with
prayer by Chaplain T. J. Mackay and were
concluded with the announcement of the
dedication by President Spauldlng, who
again thanked Mrs. Yule for her efforts and
these of the monument association In pre
sentlng this monument In the memory of
those who died for and In defense of the
Judge Fnwpetfi Address.
Judge Faweett was then Introduced and
spoke. In part, as follows:

The speaker quoted at length from the
matchless oration of Ingersoll paying trib
ute to the soldiers of 1861-5. and concluded
with a quotation from "Cover Them Over
with Beautiful Flowers."
President Spauldlng then read letters of
regret from Department Commander John
Lett, who was unable to attend because of
the death of his daughter; also one from
Mrs. Abble A. Adams, national president
of the Woman's Relief corps, who had been
