T. J. Nolan, on behalf of the Are and
police coramlMloiiOT of South Omaha, paid
a visit to the city Jsll last ntirht at the roll

The looms of the Young Men'a Christian
association were crowded yesterday after
noon to hear Dr. R. L. Wheeler's address on
"Abraham Lincoln." The early part of the
service consisted of the singing of a num
ber of hymns by the young men and of two
seecton by the First Prebyterian quartet.
The address of the doctor was stirring from
tha start, for he was able to enliven it from
Ma own experience. 11" told of the popular
prejudice which the great president had to
battle against, both at home and abroad.
Lincoln's life was not a bed of ros-e. His
climb from the lowest obscurity waa a con
stant battle, against overwhelming odds at
every step of the way. He quoted many
strikingly characteristic anecdotes on the
serious side of the man's life. .One of tiietn
lierhnps was never told before, showing how
an old woman of the doctor's homo town In
New York visited the president and ob
tained a passport which mould admit her to
all the union lines, where she went In
search of her scis. wounded and fever
stricken. In the south. The story was a
touching one, hut not unlike the thousand
similar onea told of Lincoln. From the
discourse, at the close. pr. Wheeler drew

LEAKS IN THE UP IN PLACES
Xamlier of Intoslcated Mea Indicate
I.lqaor Was to Be Had
Although but one Instance of actual vio
lation of the Sunday closing law was dis
oovered among the aaloona of Omaha yts
terday, there was an apparent restless leel
lng among ealoonmen under the continued
restraint. Early In the morning, less than
an hour after midnight, several men were
found drinking In the saloon of Peter Pe
terson, 311 North Sixteenth street, and the
proprietor arrested. During the day, while
no evidence of open saloons could be lo
cated, Investigation disclosed Information
of a fairly reliable nature to the effect
that from twenty to thirty saloons were
open for business ycslerdny, at least for
a short time. There were also gatherings
of men who had prepared themselves for
the drouth and laid In a stock of strong
beverages on Saturday for consumption on
the Sabbath. At certain hotels porters
have formed a plan of securing a stock
of the Intoxicants and having them on hand
for all who may lie on the "inside." In
dividuals, also, determined to provide
against the enforced dry spell, provided
themselves with an extra bottle or two
of the favorite liquor on Saturday night,
and nearly every drunk arrested and
setirched at the police station waa found
j to have one or more bottles of whisky in
i his pocket. By daylight yesterday morn
ing Desk Sergeant Havey had a row of
bottles that made hia desk look like the
back-bar of a saloon. Whether as a re
sult of these facts or not. it is neverthe
less true that there was more drunkenness
on the street yesterday than has been seen
for a long time.

Federation, auid last night that he had

bus dared a little
farther than Mr. William DeMllle, jr. Mr.
DoMllle separated his Indian lover and pale
faced .naiden. and between them reared
the insuperable barrier of racial divergence;'
Mr. Brown sweeps away this barrier on a
tidal wave f true love, and bids defiance
to the psychology that would hold apart
hearts that are united in psychic affinity,
regardless of the color of skin or sny sim
ilar ethnological attribute. Tint quick
sympathy that responds tut reo.ly to the
call of true love is with Mr. Brown: the
thought that followa cold, hard reason Is
still with Mr. DeMllle. Mr. Browns In
dian is quite an improvement on Mr. Dc
Mille's. for the reason that whereas Strong
heart offered his white sweetheart only ,the
posdl'- f'iU"en of a starving hand of
reservation Indians, Iroquois proposes to
find for his oil the comforts of whiteman's
civilization, with automobiles. country
homes, gymkhanas und that sort of thlntr.
and IroijuolH has the wherewithal to make
sure thst she gets them. Iejirjuols Is an
Indian who has so far mastered white
man's wuys that he can beat him at Lis
own game, and has won for himself for

Mr. Brown has not outraged the verities
In any way, either in conception or develop
ment of his idea. Hist Indian is a rational
creation, true to life In the elemental emo
tions, and quite an attractive figure for
this reason. So completely does the char
acter of Iroquois dominate the action of
the play that the others seem to suffer; In
fact, none have advanced fnr beyond th
utlir.es sufficient to indicate their identity,
still lucking the touches necessary to round
ojt their details. One. that of Arthur La
Salle. the white foil for the red hem. is
most nearly completed, and affords at timr-a
a fine contrast of the mental processes of
the civilized and the savage. This phase
cf the drama has been carefully treated by
Mr. Brown, and pursued a trifle further
with the same deftness und decision would
laud it well inside the pale ,,f greatness. As
It Is. It Is first class and thoroughly de
serves the recognition It has had.
For the story's sake nothing is lost by
the dimness with which the minor charac
ters are sketched In. Iroquois and La
Salle, two names that are Inseparably con
nected with the history of the progress of
civilization In America, are the tyjies. and
the others are merely a tribute to con
ventionality in dramatic construction: for
Mr. Brown has clcsely observed the canon

Mr. Morrison gives evidence of careful
study In his characteritation of the Indian;
he doesn't realize all Its possibilities, but
does remarkably well under the circum
stances, and in his great scene In the
third act fairly reaches a climax. His
triumph over his fallen rival is most nat
ural, and his sudden turn from his all but
satiated vengeance to his generous for
giveness and assistance from the man
he has broupht to earth is a cspital ex
position of one of the traits of Indian char
acter that Is little, understood. This scene
is Mr. Morrison's best. Mr. Owen, who
has the role of La Salle, shows his uf.ihI
careful and satisfactory" study of the part.
Miss Lantr clothes with life a rather color
less heroine. Miss Hudson as the doctor
who has to propose to a lover who is too
lazy to propose for himself gives Interest
to a charade" that is unique. The rest
of the cast Is adequate.
Mr. Brown has every, reason to feel
pleased with the reception accorded his
play. It was most enthusiastically ap
plauded at both performances yesterday,
and !s reasonably certain to be as well
liked duripj the rest of the week. Tt Is
well conceived, well written, and staged
perfectly. In fact, one of the most enjoy
able features of the production Is the

THE SOUVENIR BEE
George P. Rends furnishes the following
extract from a letter he has Just received
from A. W. Rnstwick. who edited the Lon
don American for Mr. Bemls in london dur
ing the civil war:
"On the occasion of a recent re
turn to Baltimore from New York I
found nwaltlng me the handsome illustra
tions of Omaha In that enterprising, much
quoted Journal with the modest hut Indus
trious name of Bee. Of course I recognized
your handsome chlrography even without
the signature, which announced the
thoughtful sender. It gives me much pleas
ure to ref)o t that I was a subject of your
generous recognition. Please remember me
to the editor and proprietor of The Bee and
'.ell him that I i-onsider that Issue of his
publication as fine as anything that has
been Issued by any of our great newspapers.
It Is a valuable evidence of enterprise, in
dustry and artistic excellence."
Lincoln Star: The Omaha Bee issued on
New Year's what it appropriately calls "A
Bird s-Eye View of Omaha and Jubilee Edi
tion." It Is strikingly and solidly meri
torious, not merely on account of bulk, al
though it fills thirty-two pages, sixteen of
which are devoted to such local Interests as
the title Implies, but on account of the
value of the matter and the artistic work.
It is compact, thorough, comprehensive and
yet attractive and entertaining. It Is the
very reverse of the stuffed and padded
showings which so many newspapers com
pile for such editions. This performance of
The Bee is worthy of special note for the
high standard which it establishes In Ne
braska and western Journalism. It Is a
mugnlficent advertisement for Omaha, the
good effect of which is beyond all ertinia
tion. The business men should circulate it
by the hundred thousand.
