that possibly a meeting would be held
during the week to straighten the matter
out. No meeting has been held and the

Itrown Park, ; West SJde, $90; Lincoln,
rx; Mudlaon. 188; Highland, $; Corrlgan,
M5. and Lowell, $86.
This resolution pertained to the office and
not to the Individual who held the office.
In contradiction of this resolution Secre
tary Rich of the school board placed the
salaries of the principals on the appro
pilatlon sheet at the figure the Individuals
were paid when teaching grade schools.
Mr. Rich asserts that Miss Campbell and
Miss Fitzgerald were never appointed prin
cipals by the board. It will be remem
bered that at the time the vacancies In
these prlnclpalshlpa occurred the board
could not agree, on who was to be named
to fill the vacancies. Superintendent Mc
Lean submitted a list of about a dozen
tiamea and President Morrill and Dr.
Schlndel, chairman of the teachers' com
mits, suggested Miss Campbell and Miss
Fitzgerald. Neither Messrs. Laverty or
Rich would vote fur these teachers, and
o when the date for opening the schools
arrived Dr. Schlndcl directed the superin
tendent to till the vacancies, and this or
tier from the chalrnvin of the teachers' com
mittee resulted In the naming of Miss
'ampbell and Mlsa Fitzgerald. Authority
for this action on the part of the chairman
f the teachers' committee Is found In sec
lion 25 of the manual of the South Omaha
public schools, which says that the super
intendent shall nil all vacancies occasioned
ty the absence of teachers.
It appears to be the Intention of the
irln.'lpnls Interested to let the matter run
.long for another month and then If they
re not no Id according to the schedule
tuit IS to bk brought against the board
to secure the compensation provided ao
wording to the resolution of the board fix
ing tho salaries of principals.
The teachers are watching the outcome
of the tie on the board with considerable
Interest. Morrill and Schlndel compose one
Taction and Laverty and Rich the other.
The result ia anything but harmony on the
Mayor Alans Ordinances.
Mayor Koutsky haa signed the ordlnanoea
for the vacating- of streets and alley In the
northwestern portion of the city for the
Union Pacific Railroad company. These or
dinances were passed by the city council
Thursday night and the mayor attached
his signature to the documents yesterday.
There la nothing in the way now, as far as
the city of South Omaha Is concerned, to
prevent the Union Paclflo from getting to
work at once on the laying of a new double
track road from the 8ummlt to Elkhorn.
Surveys for this line have about been com
pleted and when the ordinances were
passed officials of the railroad company In
timated that the work of construction waa
to start at once.

It la with thla play that Mr. Mansfield's
name will be ever peculiarly associated.
He made all there Is to It, and this la
much from the standpoint of histrionic
art. One cannot see the ploce without
leaving the theater weighed with a re
spect for the actor's powers that amounts
almost to awe.
Doubtless many m the large audience
last night remarked that without Mans
field the play would be Incapable of pro
duction. Possibly there is truth In this
reflection; possibly not. What a sorry Jest
is Shakespeare In the hands of Incompe
tents. What an Idle effort a theatrical
of any kind In which the protagonists do
not measure In their ability to the capaci
ties In which they serve. If It be fact
that no other actor could hold an audi
ence's attention half an evening In "Dr.
Jeykll and Mr. Hyde," then all the more
honor to Mansfield. It means the accom
plishment of wonders. Indeed.
Three of the four acta constitute a study
of the beast. The last act has Its tinge
of horror, to be sure the horror that a lost
soul feels as it looks over the brink of
hell, but it demands compassion for the
man who haa "lost the balance" of what
Ood. put In him, and which part, if any,
la not to perish.
Throughout an tha Intense dreadfulnesa
that Mansfield pours Into the unspeakable
Hyde runs an unquestioned moral lesson;
the certainty that evil begets evil, and
unlike Its antithesis, produces more and
more of Its own kind by feeding upon
Itself. Good haa to be nourished to be kept
alive. Badness spreads of Its own accord,
be It wickedness of soul or the bacteria
of decay or disease.
It Is In nature that when Jekyll absolved
his being of all the good, the other part
of him grew and grew,' stronger and
stronger, until It became Irresistible and
ruled. And when It Is too late. Just as a
tainted fruit never can be restored. Dr.
Jekyll finds he can be the Christian gentle
man no more. It Is a lecherous, poisonous
monster or death. No one can regret It la
There Is nothing In the play or Mr. Mans
field's acting to relieve the horrldness. The
play Is simple and direct. The monster I
strangles Sir Danvers with a suddenness :
that Is breath-taking and a flendlshness
that is appalling. No one can ever forget
Hyde as he sinks to the floor with his
prey that brute exultation, the hissing,
In the third act when Jekyll. throush his
Hyde, makes his desperate plea for exist
ence and the transformation that follows
the drinking of the potion tha one scene
stamps Richard Mansfield on the mind
forever. The way the actor makes one
feel the awful plight of Jekyll at the end
is the third of the trilogy wherein the per
formance of the play Is memorable.
Of course no one goes to this play for
a pleasant evening. It Is much nicer to
read the story. If one must have anything
about It, for it will be remembered that
Stevenson lets a low grade witness describe
the .most outrageous acts of Hyde. In
writing It Is easier to accent good, beauti
ful things than bad, ugly ones. In acting
It Is the reverse.
With the exception of one charaeter, all
the other personations In tha piece are Inci
dental. The exception Is Rebecca Moore.

The production closed Mr. Mansfield's
At the matinee yesterday Mr. Mansfield
appeared aa Shylock In "The Merchant of
Venice" for the first time in a number of
years at an Omaha theater. Those who
can recall the last appearance of this emi
nent actor locally In the role note with
much satisfaction the changea for the bet
ter Mr. Manafleld has made In his concep
tion of the part. He does not now under
take to make Shylock the avenger of racial
wrongs, but rather lets him feed a private
vengeance "a certain lodged and fixed
hatred and loathing" toward Antonio. His
bond, conceived In Jest, was intended first
to show his contempt for the Christian
methods of doing business; later, when the
sanctity of his home had been Invaded and
his daughter' stolen away by one of An
tonio's friends, and the misfortunes of the
merchant crowd upon him, the bond be
comes an Instrument for revenge. It could
not be that Shylock drew that bond With
any prescient knowledge of ths miscarriage
of the argosies from Tripoli, Mexico and
England. It must therefore be concluded
that ho made the loan to Antonio expect
ing 'to be repaid promptly and In kind.
Previous slights and Insults had not awak
ened In Shylock's breast any nosltive de
gree of hatred for Antonio or any other
of the Christian crew; it waa only' when i
his daughter was stolen away and became
the bride nf one of the despised sect that
he gave wny under his grief and thought
of retaliation. To encompass tho death
of Antonio opened to him a way to be
even with his tormentors In a body. This
Idea Is made clear by Mr. Mansfield, and
seems a very reasonable one.
Shylock, under the Mansfield troatment,
is a dignified, educated gentleman, a
man of substance and affairs. His scene
with Antonio, when the loan Is negotiated,
Is made a business transaction, a certain
degree of Iroulcal comment emeriti into
it, but no more than would be expected
any m here under like conditions. In the
scene with .Tubal, when Shylock is torn
between grief for the loss of his daughter
and the money she took along and his
dawning opportunity for revenge, Mr.
Mansfield gives a delightfully clear Inter
pretation of the conflicting emotions that
rack him. In the trial scene he risee to
greatness. Shylock Is here a man, bent
on one great, fixed purpose. His bond
gives him the life of Antonio, and that
he Is determined to have. His own great
wrongs are enough to shut out from him
sny thought of mercy, and the prices of
the law Is to serve his purpose. It is with
fine effect that he delivers his lines in this
scene. His scorn, his withering sarcasm,
his hatred for the men who have so
cruelly misused him, all are expressed In
the sentences that come crisp and sharp,
with that locuriveness of utterance that
only Mansfield among all our actors has
mastered. Not for a moment does be lose
his dignity, never does his passion rise
above the fixed level of his determination.
He Is not a ravening wolf; he Is simply
s vengeful man, certain of his position,
snd exultant In his power. When he has
been balked by the judgment pronounced
by Portia, and has been humiliated by the
Christiana,- haying thrown bark to him a
portion of that which was his own on the
hardest of conditions, it Is a mental rather
than a physical ool lapse that sends him
tottering from ths duke's court room. All
In sll. Mr. Mansfield's Shylock is a most
than to Shylock. Portia was appealing to
the Jew and to no one else, a fact Miss
Rockwell will do well to remember.
Generally, the cast of the play was good,
and the setting ia every .way adequate.
