POLITICS SAVIOR FOR LABOR
Washington Socialist Palate thu
Way ta Heal All In
D. Burgens of Tacoma, Wash., candidate
for governor Of Washington on the socialist
ticket in the 1904 campaign, addressed a
meeting of socialists Thursday night at
Washington ball. HJs discussion embraced
almost all of the socialistic doctrines, but
his chief endeavor was ta show the need of
political organisation as a means to the ad
justment of nodal Inequalities.
"Labor unions sro futile," he said. "Their
leaders have betrayed them by the nun
dreds for money and office. ' Capital talks
about the sacredness of the contract and
holds It sacred only as long as It serves
capital's Interests. But how terrible a thing
It Is In the eyes of the employer for the
union man to break his contract! The
contract Is binding on you and me then, but
not on the rich man.
"What are we to have Instead to advance
the Interests of the laboring man?, I tell
you we mast organise our workers in the
political field as well as the Industrial; we
must get control of the government, which
is at present only a means for the rich to
rob the poor and occasionally each other.
Then we won't send the military down to
the mines to shoot the poor working-man.
Then we won't protect the capitalist In his
robbery -of employes. Then the man who
creates the wealth may keep It, and If the
jveople now rich want to enjoy the fruits of
labor It will be the fruits of their own, for
they will work like the rest of u for their
living." . ,,

GIVE YOUR STOMACH
A NICE VACATION
Don't Ik It By (Starving It Either
IX a Substitute Do The Work.
Tbe old adage. "All work and no play
makes Jack a dull boy," applies Just ai
well to the stomach, one of the most Im
portant organs of the human system, as It
does to the man himself.
If your stomach Is worn out and rebels
sgalnst being taxed beyond its limit, the
only sensible thing you can do Is to give It
a rest. Employ a substitute for a short
time and see If It will not mora than re
pay you In results.
Stuart's DyRpepsIa Tablets are a willing
and most efficient substitute. They them
selves digest every bit of food In the stonv
acb In Just the same way that the stomach
Itself would were it well. They contain all
the essential elements that the gastric
Juiol and other digestive fluids of the stonv
acb contain and actually act Just the same
and do Just the same work as the natural
fluids would do were tho stomach well and
svnd. They, therefore, relieve the stom
achi just as ono workman relieves an
other, and permit It to rest and recuperate
and regain, its normal health, and strength,
This 'Vacation" Idea was suggested by
ths letter of a prominent lawyer In Chi
cago. Read what he says: "I wss en
gsged In the most momentous undertaking
of my life In bringing about the coalition
of certain great interests that meant much
to ma as well as my clients. It was not
ths work of days, but of months; I was
working night and day almost, when at a
very critical time my stomach went com
, pletely back on me. The undue mental
strain brought it about and hurried up
what would have happened later on.
"What I ats I had to literally force down,
snd that was a source of mlBery, as I had
a sour stomach much of the time. My
head ached. I waa sluggish and. began te
lose my ambition to carry out my under
taking. It looked pretty gloomy for me
and I confided my plight to one of my
clients. He' had been cured by Stuart's
Dyspe psta Tablets and at once went down
to a drug store snd brought a box up to
"I bad not taken a quarter of that box
before I found that they would do all the
, work my stomach ever did, and as a rest
-r vacation was out of the question for
me, I determined to give my stomach a
vacation. I kept right on taking the tub
lots and braced up and went ahead with
my work with renewed vigor, ate Just so
much as I ever did and carried out that
undertaking to a successful issue. I feel
that I have Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets to
thank for saving me the handsomest fee I
ever received, as well as my reputation,
and last, but not least, my stomach."
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are for sale
by all druggists at 50 cents a bog.

Very seldom Indeed Is such a charming
song recital given anywhere as the one
which Omaha people listened to at the
Lyric last night. Mrs. Mabelle Crawford
Welpton has been a fellow townawomnn
for two yesrs. This concert was her first
public appearance here since her marriage.
In the old days of the tent festivals on

Mrs. Welpton has a messo-soprano voice
of surprising range and sweetness. Her low
notes have the contralto quality and her
upper tones ell the clearness and ease gen
erally associated with a soprano. Her voice
haa been exquisitely trained (her enuncia
tion being a study In Itself). She also has
the great gift of temperament. Added to
all this she has an alert, discriminating
mind, which she uses continually through
all of her work. Upon her program were
represented the modern French school of
song, the German and the Old English, to.

The first number, taken from Msssenet's
"Herodlsde," "II est doux, II est bou." was
given with a fine sustained tone and great
dignity. Of the German songs Wagner's
"Traume" was most beautiful. Robert
Frans's "Im Herbst" was given with rare
dramatic feeling. Frant is almost the Isst
word In the literature of song, and few ar
the singers who appreciate and can convey
to an audience the exqulslteness and subtle
ness of his feeling.
The little Massenet "Pensee d' Autonene"
was another gem, and Chamlnade's "April"
gave a chance for the most delicate, web
llke work. Mrs. Welpton has thoroughly
sane Ideas on the subject of "values." Why
Is It that so few singers ever arrtveTat any
conclusion at all on thla,all-absorblng topic?
The romansa from "Faust" struck a fe
sponsive chord. It was very familiar and
given with breadth and repose.

Announcements of the Theaters.
"On His Uppers," George Ade's first effort

Orpheum next week. It Is scarcely neces
sary to say It is a comedy and Its most
salient Investiture to claim attention is
bright and crisp dialogue, Ade's forte. It
will be. presented by Fred Lenox and com
pany. Another feature of next week's
program that will undoubtedly enlist an
unusual attention will be Captain Bloom's
demonstrations of Marconi's'' wireless
telegraphy. The three last performances
of the bill on for this week will- be given
tonight and Saturday matinee and night.
The coming of Sam Bernard and Hattie
Williams Is a welcome announcement, even
If their stay Is limited to a single per
formance. The impression made by this
pair of stars In their line when here In
"The Girl from Kays" last season has
added to the, Interest felt in their coming
visit in "The Rollicking OlrL" The stories
sent out from New York about this piece,
which was so good that It drew crowds all
last summer on Broadway, have caused a
general desire to see It, and the chances
are that the Boyd theater will be crowded
on Saturday night when the piece is shown
for Its single performance here. Mr. Ber
nard and Miss Williams will be supported
by the original New York company, com
prising eighty funmakers, and are equipped
with the best of costumes and scenery. The
production Is under the direction of Charles
Frohman, which assures its excellence.
"Why Smith Left Home" has been se
lected as the bill for the next week at the
Burwood theater, to succeed "Under the
Red Robe," which will have its closing per
formance on Saturday night. Director
Brown has carefully cast his company and
has prepared especially for the production
of the" Broadhurst farce, so that a fine per
formance is looked for.

rTENNINGS AND OTHERS CRITICISE HIM

The letter of Btate Superintendent Mc
Brlen to Treasurer Hennlngs of the repub
lican state committee In which Mr. Mo
Brlen said he would not allow the em
ployes In his office to be assessed for cam
paign purposes and would pay his Own
assessment "as a republican and not as
state superintendent." has created , con
siderable surprise and some . indignation
among republicans who helped to elect
McBrien. The expression was made by
one republican office holder who did not
want to get mixed up In the affair, that
"McBrien should have told the commitU"?
during the campaign that his employe?
would pay no assessment so' the committtc
need not have looked after that 'particular
office, and not wait until he was In office
himself and had spent a large portion uf
his time building up a personal machine
among the school teachers of tbe state."
Another republican said:'
"It looks like McBrien bellovetTJe Is
stronger than the republican machine
which elected him. He was not crying for
a nonpartisan office when he was a candi
date on the republican ticket and It comes
with 111 grace from him at this time, after
he has been elected by' the republican
Hcaningra Expresses Snrnrlse,
Treasurer Hennlngs said:
"I was very much surprised to get such a
letter from Mr. McBrien. His office Is po
litical ffnd lie was elected by the repub
lican party, which nominated him. His em
ployes hold their places by the grace of
tho republican party Just as much as any
other employe In tho state house serving
linden a republican official. As far as as
sessing members of the faculty of the unl-.
versity is concerned ot course We do not
do that. The regents get no salary, but In
nearly every case they contribute to the
campaign fund. Chancellor Andrews was
not asked for a contribution and neither
were the members of the faculty ot the
Junior normal schools. It would not be
right to ask them, but their case Is .dif
ferent from that of McBrien. Why, the
chancellor was elected by a fusion board In
the first place. Tnless we do assess the
employes of republican officials I don't see
how we can hope to Keep the republican
party together and conduct our campaigns.
We assess all other employes In the state
house and they are Just exactly In the
same class with the employes In, Mr. Mc
Harry B. Davis, undertake Tel IM

About a dozen bids on the construction
of the new Young Men's Christian Asso

of Fisher & Lawrie Thursday. All were
made by local contractors. So many things
are ito be considered In awarding the con
tract that it promises to bo about a week

"I suffered for a long time from weakness
of the limbs. My head and stomach pained
me all the time. I tried doctors but they
did me no good. A friend told me ot your
medicine. I went to the drug store and got
one bottle and began to take It, and today
I feel like a different man. I know that
Duffy'a Pure Malt Whiskey Is the only
