condition depends upon his character while
socialism says character depends upon con

solution to social problems."
Hev. Newman Hall Burdlck reached the
above conclusions In a sermon delivered at
the Second Tresbyterlan church Sunday
nlRht on ' "Socialism." leading up to his
conclusions, Rev. Burdlck delved deep Into

On this latttp- subject Rev. Burdlck
pointed out a vast difference between the
principles of Christianity and the principles
of Christianity as exemplified by some who
profess to be Christians. Even the church
as a body, he said, has not been controlled
by genuine Christianity, which he explained
as principles of Christianity as laid down
by Christ. "If one out of ten persons who
claim to he Christians would be controlled
by the principles they profess to believe,
those reforms which are so much desired
would noon be brought about," he said.

In pointing out the order of things
which must be changed he said In sub
stance, thst condition which does not give
to every man a "square deal" must be
changed. The small business man knows
that the large concern secures rebates
from the railroads and that he la unjustly
discriminated against. This Is unjust,
wicked, unrighteous and cannot exist.
The private cltlxen finds that while we
boast of our prosperity the price of living
has Increased out of all proportion to the
Increase of his wages. He finds that his
dollar will not buy as much as It did a
few years ago. This must be changed.

orlallsm Not tne Remedy.
The socialist program, the speaker said,
was Inadequate to remedy these evils. This
program he said advocated the common
ownership of the Instruments of proa ac
tion; the common management of produc
tion; and the distribution of the Income.
Ths basis of socialism Is unsound. In that
labor does not create all value. Labor and
demand create value. A ship constructed
on Plke'a Peak would be worthless there.
Socialism depreciates the value of brain
work. Politically It Is Impracticable. It
would create a system of bureaus to dis
cover the wants of the people; to secure
statistics; it would require a machine that
could not stand the test.
At this time human nature Is not equal
to It. The severe charge against socialism
la that men ' cannot be made honest by
legislation. Men cannot be trusted with
such an undertaking. Socialism falls t,o

attempts to Improve the temporal man

The special train bearing Secretary Taft
and party arrived at the Union station
Sunday morning at 6:15. on the Union
Pacific, and departed twenty minutes later
over the Northwestern en route to the
east, by the way of Chicago.
Of the original party, not more than
fifteen were left. On reaching San Fran
slsco, they began to separate, a number
took the southern route, others went to
Portland to pay a visit to the Lewis and
Clark exposition, several remained In Cali
fornia. The three Pullman coaches that bore the
party were the Milton, the Colonial and
the San Franslsco, under the supervision
of R. L. Ruble, San Jose. California, travel
ing passenger agent of the Union Pacific.
Mr. Ruble said the run was one of the
best he had ever made. They came all the
way through on the time of the Over
land Limited. The run from North Platte
was made In seven hours, which he aald
was very fast time. Nowhere had there
been a delay nor lack In the arrangements.
He declared he was satisfied, and that the
members of the party expressed themselves
as delighted with the service.
During the twenty minutes the train lay
at the station all the curtains were drawn
and not a member of the party appeared
except two southern congressmen who were
to take the Burlington to St. Louis. The
others were In their berths, for the hours
were small and wee, and the air was chilly
and fit for delightful leep. Three curious
people werj the only spectators. At S:35
the departure was made In charge of the
Northwestern agent. The two congressmen
were William A. Howard of Georgia and
A. A. Wiley of Alabama. They will travel
to Nashville and from there Representative
Howard will go by the way of Chattanooga
Representative Wiley will go home
No More Paradea.
Mr. Wiley Is such a man as tradition has
taught one to expect In a southern gentle
man. He Is large, even poised and strong
In mind and body, and he is good natured.
Mr. Ruble hinted that he should stay over
In Omaha until today, saying that the Ak-sar-ben
festival was In progress, and that
he might see some parades. (Here Mr.
Ruble winked at the Northwestern agent).

immediately to the Harrison street station,
where they were attached to a Baltimore

Omaha's Telephone Fight.
A. B. Hunt has the lasting gratitude of
the mechanics laborers and the largest
portion of the business men of Omaha and
surrounding towna for the splendid fight
he Is making against the Bell Telephone
company and Its millions of dollars back
of it, and with Its thousands of paid plug
gers, who are as active as files around a
molasses barrel ever alnce the 'phone ques
tton came up. These cappers can be found
talking against the Independent company
on every prominent street corner in the
city day or night. Keep up the good work
old man, you are bound to win ultimately
Tha people are with you.
"Give la Connection with the People."
From tho Examiner.
The people of Omaha will, indeed, think
It very strange If the city council will not
permit them to vote on the question of
granting a franchise to an independent
telephone company a corporation that is
financially responsible and Is able in every
respect to give A No. 1 bonds as a guar
anty of good faith and as a pledge that
the enterprise will be carried out In an
up-to-date manner. In the event of the
Independent telephone company securing a
franchise through the vote of the people
tha public can rest assured that better
service a service that cannot be equaled
and lower rates will lie the gratifying re
sult. Remember that competition always
benefits the people. The argument that the
telephone business Is a natural monopoly
and that no city should have
won't wash among sensible peopl
is believed that they are In the majority
In Omaha. All they want, and they have
right to demand It, Is that the council
let this question be decided by a popular
vote. This permit, which is within the
power of the city council to grant. Is not.
a privilege, but a right that belongs to
the people. It should be allowed without
any hesitation. By putting the matter be
fore the peoplo the city councllmen assume
no responsibility whatever. They will sim
ply bo doing their plain duty, no more, no
less. It Is hoped that the citizens who
have the best Interests of Omaha at heart
will urge their councllmen who are the
servants of the public to refer the fran
chise question to the people. If the people
vote against the granting of the franchise
to the Independent company the Indepen
dents cannot and will not complain. Noth
ing can be fairer than a popular vote.
It should be borne in mind that the In
dependent company proposes to spend a
big sum of money In Omaha and employ
a large number of persons, and It should
be remembered also that thla new tele
phone company will connect Omaha with
hundreds of towns and thousands of out
side business men not now reached by any
other line, thus bringing them Into direct
connection with our wholeaalera and re
tailers and attracting to thla city a large
volume of telephone trade orders now go
ing to rival cities.

Shakespeare hardly wrote "Richard III"
to Justify history but rather to please the
last of the Tudors with a graphic and glow
ing account of how the first of the line
to mount the throne of England did so
through closing the desperately criminal
career of the last of the Plantagenets. U
has never been charged that Shakespeare
was not a courtier. Only In this way can
we now account for the heavy load of In
iquity he heaps on the misshapen
shoulders of the Duke of Oloster, who Is
painted by less !ntcr.-steil and therefore
probably more accurate authors In colors
far more attractive than those used by
the great dramatist. It Is not the purpose
here to enter Into a defense of Richard
Planatagenet, Esq., third and last of the
name. This reference Is made solely to In
dicate In a measure th. excuse for the
dreadful array of crimes that stalks
through the Clbber version of the Shakes
peare drama. It wasn't bloody enough for
good old Colly's .uses as It came down to
him from Its writer, so he syncopated it
with the precedlnr tragedy of "King Henry
IV" and tncked the . nirder of that monarch
onto Its successor as a sort of pleasing
preface for the horrors that followed. In
order to do so, he mercifully spares the
audience the drowning of Clarence In his
favorite drink. But at that. "Richard HI"
affords abundance of work for both coro
ner and undertaker.
Mr. Robert Mantell. who since his last
previous visit to Omaha, has writ bis name
large among the list of American trage
dlans, opened a week's engagement at the
Boyd theater last night, using "Richard
III" as the play. His conception of the
character of Oloster might easily be sub
ject to discussion, were one to step aside
from the text of the drama and apply the
light of knowledge gained otherwhere; It
may be questioned If he has given the
very best of what Shakespeare Intended.
In his grim determination to wipe out the
Plantagenet family, all save himself, the
Nevilles, the Woodvllles. and the Tudors
If he could catch them. Mr. Mantell's
Richard overlooks certain little touches of
sardonic humor, and pursue his bloody
and devastating course unllghted by a
pleasant thought, or even one of those
sarcastic smiles that occasionally gleamed
across his terrifying pathway. He ap
proaches this task with an earnestness that
Is almost as terrifying as the cold, rent-
less course of the crafty, cruel monarch,
and follows It with the same vindictive
zeal. At no point does Mr. Mantell step
aside from his apparent purpose, but, as
Indicated by the text, he piles point on
point In cumulative horror, until the cli
max Is reached In that dreadful dream that
disturbs Richard's rest the night before
Bosworth's bloody field. Here Impending
doom daunts his soul, and he grovels af
frighted at the visions and crushed by his
thoughts. His cry that "Richard Is him
self again': does not convince, and he sets
forth . at the head of his army, plainly
doomed. His struggle with Richmond on
the field would lose much of Its force were
it not for the artistic simulation of ex
hausted vitality that leaves the tyrant at
last victim to overtaxed nature and prey
to an avenging sword. It Is surely a
thoughtful and satisfying rendition of the
character Mr. Mantell gives. He reads his
lines with taste and force, avoiding, or,
rather, checking a slight tendency to rant,
giving a most intelligent Interpretation to
the character as set forth In the play.
Tils support Is very good. Mr. Ilolllngs
worth's Buckingham is. quite well done,
while Mr. Parmer's Omaha friends are
glad to see him so well situated as ho finds
himself In Catesby. Mr. Lelghton is a
maniy Richmond, and Giles Shine gives
dignified life to Stanley. The women of
the play are done with uncommon good
Judgment. The play is superbly mounted,
and is presented with a comniedable fidel
ity to detail. The audience last night,
which was larger than one might expect
to be drawn by a classic performance on
Sunday night, wm enthusiastic over tho
performance, and gave the star .-- most
cordial expression of its full approval.
"Richard III" will be repeated tonight hy

audiences were so dull In comprehension
as to do their beet. Ineffectually, to spoil
this and several other bits of brilliant ef

K-va Lang as Gertrude West, the Jealous

wherein she can appeal more to the sym
pathies. But she does the next best thing
and portrays the wife so she does not
lone the chnrm of personality and you
feel sorry for the foolish, doubtful one.
The husband falls to Albert Morrison
and he resolutely plays It as buoyantly
and as humorously as the most optimistic
could desire. James Fulton lends his usual
careful and Intelligent work to the part
of the girl's father, and the only
criticism on Florence Gerald as the
girl's mother might fall because she lays
It on a trifle too strong. Grant Simpson

the peddler, Is the principal part of the
play, yet the star Is supported by a com

the title role Mr. Welch presents a charac

extreme. Mr. Welch keeps close to nature
In his dlllncatlon of the part. The humor
suggests that which conies unstudied from

Kn Joyed ly Large
Sousa's Is a band that plays eminently
as though controlled 'to the final whisper
by one breath, and that breath completely
in accord even to the most elusive desire
of a masterly musician mind. The popu
larity of the march king was shown by
the large audience that sat In the chilly
Auditorium to hear the program. It was
a very large turn-out for a Sunday night
with so many competing amusements. No
attempt was made to give the program a
Sunday character. In fact as to program
the single Sousa performance was not not
able In any particular. The greatest en
thusiasm was shown after the conductor's
new march, "The Diplomat" was played,
and he responded to an encore with "Stars
and Stripes Forever." The latter piece
called forth the biggest applause, though
another encore, the sextet from "Lucia"
awoke warmth In tho audience.

course the girl loves the thief, not know-
It g him, and the sheriff, when he finds out
the situation lets the thief go, giving him
money to start anew In life. It will hardly
stand the test of ethical analysis, but as a
bit of rough and ready sentiment It is
superb. It is finely acted by the little com
pany, consisting of Mr. Day, Mr. Watson
and Miss Winston. The humor Is clean
and pungent, the sentiment tender, und
the whole Is more than enough to repay
visit to tho Orpheum.

was a municipal contractor who had the
order to repave the street, and requested

of the stones for themselves. Thi im
position was only discovered when the
street had been unpaved for some days.
