judge for the light sentence In a voice In
which but a slight quiver was noticeable.
Judge Otin In referring to the case after

A very good-slued auli( nt e whs out last
night to greet the old time favorite of
Omaha. Mr. Hans Albert, who. with the i
assistance of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Gahril
Mrs. Gale and Mr. Fred Kllis. gave a very
delightful concert at the Boyd theater.
Mr. Albert was In a most excellent and
mellow mood and played with that sym
pathy for which he has always been not"d.
In response to the applause of a most de
lighted audience he gave an an encore a very
touching arrangement of "Old Folks nt
Home." It is with gTeat repret that we
part from Mr. Albert as a soloist and only
trust that In the studio work he takes tip
he will find as much pleasure as he has !n
times past given to Ids hearers. .
Of Mr. Ofthm too much cannot be said as I
1.0 ms conscientious worn, nis pcnece ,ccu-
nique ana oeautirui conception or me coin
posers' thoughts. His rendition of thp
"Dedication," by Schumann-Liszt, In Ms
flrst series, the "Gavotte" of Gluck-Brahnis
o.r.d the "Polonaise" of Paderewskl In the
second S'Tles, iwere all given with wonder
ful style and finish, proving In his versa
tility his right to rank with the real artists
of the present time.
This was Mrs. Gahm's flrst appearance ns
professional and most nobly did she
acquit herself, playing her beautifully toned
and picturesque harp with a charming ease
of manner and delicacy of touch, showing
the result. of the hard work she has been j
doing under the Instruction of Slgnor En- :
rieo Tramontl. The "Welch Melody" was
very much enjoyed. Her friends remem
bered her ln that best of ways, by deluging
her with flowers.
Mrs. Kate Norcross Gale ia a new addi
tion to the ranks of Omaha's sopranos. She
possesses a mezzo voice of very good range,
which was at Its best In the song of Pas
eard's "Good Day, Marie." As an encore
she sang In a very delightful manner "Love
is a Bubble."
A much felt need In Omaha of a fne
basso-baritone has been supplied by Mr.
Ellis, who has one of those absolutely true
voices, which nothing can shako from the
pitch, having besides a tender and sympa
thetic quality, which. !n addition to h:s
thoroughly artistic manner of singing,
makes his appearance as a soloist a delight
to bis audience. His rendition of "Ocdlpe
Colone" was very dramatic, and ln the bal
lads he sang to equal advantage.
Taken as a whole the eoneert was up to a
high mark of professional work, only prov
ing what talent we have right here In our
own city that we have but too seldom

Mr. Burrows, chairman of the committee
on elections, Interposed an objection, say
ing that the certificate of election was de
fective in that It was provided that Mr.
Gearln shall serve "until his successor is
elected." He said that the governor had
no constitutional right to place such a
restriction upon his appointment. He,
however, withdrew the objection after Mr.
Spooner and Mr. Toller had auggested that
the certificate Is not without precedent.
Mr. Spooner agreed that the words ob
jected to were surplusage, but pointed out
that they do not invalidate the appoint
ment, which, he said, was regular ln other
Mr. Gearln was then escorted by Mr.
Fulton to the vice president's desk, where
the oath of office was administered. Mr.
Gearln took a seat on the democratic side
of the chamber. He is the flrst democrat

Mr. Elboiurn hus a suy coming. He heard
Thursday morning th.it Mr. Breen Intended

him the inspiration to explain:

Inve run this office during the incumbency

"Mr. Elliourn'r orlnlon is on the disk

talked oyer the matter with Mr. Herdmun

FIGHT TO SAVE TENDERLOIN
Kflortn of Property Owner to Mate
Off Track Kserted la
After the attorney hod stipulated a to
the facts involved in the Goldsmitb-Krug
injunction suit against the Union Pacific
to prevent the laying of tracks at Elev
enth street and Capitol avenue, argument
proceeded before Judge Troup Thursday
Attorney W. H. Pennock. associated with
Isador Zlegler, for the plaintiffs, admitted
that If the railroad has a franchise for
the use of the streets at the point In
question, then plaintiffs ought not to pre
vail, but It is th contention of plaintiff's
attorneys that the road has no such
franchise, only a city license or ordinance,
and so should be estopped from "irre
parably damaging" the property of Gold
smith and Krug.
In his answer for the railroad company,
Edson Rich set up that the company did
not admit anything a to tt.e ownership of
the property In question, but did admit
that Goldsmith occupies the building with
a saloon. The answer says the room
over the saloon are. to the knowledge of
plaintiffs, occupied by prostitutes, who
carry on an unlawful business. It is al
leged in the answer that the railroad Is
proceeding under authority granted by an
ordinance passed by the city council on
December S and 12.
In his argument Mr. Blch contended that
In any event the railroad 1 among the
corporations that have the right .to the
use of the streets, within reasonable
limits, when necessary to the conduct of
their business, even against the protest
of property owners. He pointed out that

ten or twelve feet of space between a
passing car and the Goldsmith saloon.
Mr. Rich effectively .called attention to
the fact that the advent of the track
meant the complete transformation of a
district whose only Industry is prostitu
tion of character into a district of laud
able business enterprises, ueh a would
be a boon to Omaha.
At the conclusion of the arguments the
attorney for plaintiffs agreed to submit a
brief to the court on. Suturday. Mr. Rich
said he would submit a reply brief next
Monday. Judge Troup will give his decl
I sion after reading the briefs and mill not
dei ty the ruling any longer than necessary.
