tendent Davidson, who Was Just returned
from a meeting of the department tt su
perintendents of the National Educational
association at Louisville.'
Superintendent Davtdcon favors th
founding of a de-tinciuent school In Omaha,
elleving a need exists f'.r such an Instl
tullon arid that It would keep many boys
and girls out of reformatory Institutions
and do a great eieal of good In correcting
the faulta of nature or- environment. He
advocate a school conducted without spe
cial rer train t or the exercise of arbitrary
uthortty toward the pupil, but fashioned
so as to meet the special requirement of
children delinquent tn various ways or cte
lrtur from the norna3 type. The school,
be contends, should be free from the odium
attached ti penal and reformatory Insti
tutions and no sentiment permitted that
dgrace is incumbent upon attendant.
No estimates have been made as to the
c..t of establishment and maintenance,
these matters having ten left for general
discussion after the matter pets before
the Board of education.
Sat far the b-I1Ibc Refers.
Superintendent Davidson aa;-s much more
interest has been created by the action
at Doeier-ille regarding spelling reforms
than! was created among the educators
there. The recommendation that twelve
more words be spelled in a new way in
all published proceedings and correspond
ence of the National educational associa
tion, was not adopted by that department.
It was proposed by Chancellor Andrews
of the Vniverslty of Nebraska and got no
further than at the round table at which
reformed spelling was discussed.
"Personally. I am opposed to Inaugurat
ing spelling reform unless It is accom
panied by broad basic principles and rules
that can b applied generally and com
monly." said Mr. Davidson. "I do not
think that any rreat amount of good can
result from trying to change our spelling
by a dosen or so words at a time, selected
almost haphasard and not conforming to
any definite plan. In other word, the
change must be broad and comprehensive
and not by trying to change the spelling
af a few words this year and a few more
ix it year, and so on.
"Sentiment at the meeting seemed to be
pretty generally unanimous against the
presence . snd effect of fraternities and
Hororities in high . schools. Other cities

the question, particularly at Kansas City,

This attractive and clever comedy fares
exceedingly Well from the Woodward stock;
company, although it does not by any
means exhaust the strength of the organisa
tion. The piece If modern, clean-cut and
delightfully amusing, without having re- i
course to tha farcical. Real humor in li i
runs in a rich vela through all of the four ;
acts. It gives Mis Lang and Mr. Morrison
special opportunities and both develop their
roles in a very satisfactory manner. "Miss
Hobhe" is a satire on the so-called new
woman, and the particular classification of
what Miss Hobbe set out to be is appor
tioned decidedly the losing end of the
argument. After ' discovering that Miss
Hobba believes all men to be hypocrites
and thorough sirmers. Wolf Kingiwarl (Mr.
Morrison) proceeds to demonstrate to the
lady bow much her views vary from a sana
acceptance of the conditions as they eaist.
He succeeds. He certainly ought to, for
Jerome K. Jerome, the author, gives the
new woman small latitude to ventilate her
opinions. She does put up something of a
mental contest for a while, but Wolf is
decrfctadly too clever in physical contrivance
and intellectual exchsnge; also in preach
ing sermons with object lemons.
Miss Xiobbs starts out with her views
perverted, and Miss Lang interprets well
the young nomas who has followed Iter
own cocksure notions long enough to make
little, trouble, but not to a point where
she is hide-bound by them and can't be
altered. In a measure the role is a hard
ona in which to retain sympathy, but by
the aid of bar beauty and an obvious un
certainty of assurance after Wolf has
sought to trap her. Miss Lang succeeded.
In fact, she compels one to take a heart
burning Interest in the final happy outcome
of the affair, rendering the role with
marked Intelligence.
Mr. Morrisons work goes a long way
toward making the play a hit. He goes
through scene after scene with a light
hearted abandon and crisp wit that are
captivating. Mr. Todd and Miss Hill do
eflective and pleasing work as Mr. and
Mrs. Fercival Kings earl. One of the big
gest laugh of tha show is provoked by
Grant Simpson as George Jessop in the
third act by a broad comedy touch. Miss
Ward is loveable, funny and happy as
Aunt Susan, Miss Davis charming a MU11

The Orpheum opened the week Sunday
with another entertaining and amusing bill
snd at both initial performances the house
was thronged. Some members are above
the average and the whole is an adequate
fuinilment of the prime mission of vaude

Is not a "dead one" or an idler on the list.
The string begins to unwind at a most
lively clip with the O'Rourke Burnett
trio, father, mother and son, in some nov
elty dancing work which merits the gen
erous applause it received. The boy is
about 3 or 11. but the little chap already
is a worthy student of his parents' art
and working between father and mother
in a three-handed affair his little feet clat
ter away with about as much dekterity
as some older folks. Mildred Flora, an
eccentric comedienne, is clever. She does
soma neat tricks on a slack wire. also.
Mitchell and Cain, or as the bill has it,
The Frenchman and the other fellow,"
come In for a large share of the well
earned cheering. They are fut,ny enouarh
to "stay on" much longer than they do,
and at that they didn't appear to shy at
the lights any. This pair of pink or posies,
aa tha taata may be, strike a rattier cordial
spot right at the starts for they bring
back that happy eld tradition of the "long
and short" and mix up at least three
languages in ways that amuse. Mary
Dupont and company in John. W. Cope's
sketch. "Left at the Part," Is only another
method of introducing Willard Hutchinson

on first money with a mighty rich little
skit as incongruous as it is funny, being
a burlesque on a marriage affair which
comes so near not being the real hymen
that a woman with a top hesvy temper
makes life one unutterable horror for a dudy
man with a Wall street name. Ferry Cor

things and the Watson-Hutchlngs-Ed-wards

Harry Vokee Is happy In having the as
sistance of Willie Wert this season. West
plays Harold, while Ward does Percy, In
Just the same old way. It is a natural evo
lution of the characters, or rather the In
evitable progress of the pcir. Ward and
Yokes made them famous in days of old.
West and Yokes are adding to their ex-
, prrience nightly. In many ways this com
; blnailon of nonsense and foolery has broad
ened since last keen here, and with new
song, new chorus inoteincnta and new
lighting effects, it Is almost a new show.
West is a most acceptable substitute for
the original Haroid: Indeed, some go so far
as to say that he is a distinct improvement
on Ward. At any rate, ht i a low come
dian of resource and apparent tact, and
makes a lot of a liule in the way of get

"Ylddisher" of tha troupe, is a worthy
member of the trio. Between them they

Messrs. Nixpn A Z4mmennn restrained
for tra seasons any impulse t send this

no real violence to truth to Bay that the
prosperity or general happiness of the west
wjuid not have suffered greatly if it had
never been eent. A thin plot Is stretched
through three acts of indifferent music and
comedy of the simplest sort. The company
in charge of the affair works In an heroic
ay to give life to the lines and situation,
but without any very marked succe.

A iare crud gathered on tut W street
viaduct at 1'j o ciock yesterday morning
to witness the lowering of the old square
stack of the Hammond plant- Originally
this stack wne one cf the highest in South
Omaiia and it was the first, but since the
build. ng came into disuse It has been sur
passed ty the active coropaniea. It had
gotten out of repair so aa to be of no
further servioe. so when it was desired
ta clesr the space for the Introduction of
the new hollers and th more commodious
new stack the National company began
to look out for the tet means to lower the
brick work. At first several feet were
taken off by hand, but the process was
slow. It was given out a few day ago
that the company would dynamite the
stack and bring it all down at once.
About 1J feet cf the stack wss left in
position. This accounted for the large
crowd that assembled to see the bricks
come down. r?rk. Jcr.nsr.u & Parks had
charge of the work., and they had the as
sistance of Mr. Chtistlanson. chief of con
struction of the National company, and
Messrs. Anderson and Gsrdener of tha
local fores.
The first step was the undermining cf
on side of the stack ss far as safety
would allow. Then a few sticks of dyna
mite were placed on the other side. H. C
Murphy wa given the honor of firing the
fuses which loaered one of the old land
mat ks and marked a new era In the activ.
Ities of the Hammond plant and the in
dustries of South Omaha. On the moment
of the explosion the firm looking structure
simply ditiaolved end dropped in a Bhape
less mass of rubbish. Th blast was a
perfect success in every wsy. Not only
did the brick separate from the. mortar,
but most of them fell uninjured and can
be used again.
In the place of the old stack the Na
tional company will build a new 2(K-foot
stack of large capacity. With the removal
of this stack the most of the ground has
been cleared for the erection of the new
power building and some of the new con
struction Is already under way. Quite a
force of men is buKy clearing and exca
vating on the ground, beside a very large
force occupied in the main building. The
construction of the new re-enforring wall
on the west side of the largest building is
almost completed.
Tsi Firemen Hart.
One or two narrow escapee on the part
of the firemen were recorded at the
Koutsky fire Saturday night and two were
slightly Injured. Assistant Chief Fred Linn
was one who fell one story and received
several scrstches and minor bruises, but
nothing of a serious nature. Jack McKeal.
one of the firemen, u also similarly in
jured. Lou Vanscoy fell into the fire and
managed to come out without a scratch.
With two other companions he volunteered
to assist the department. The chief sent
them up the stairs st the front of the
building which hsd burned through near
the ceiling of the paint store, but could
be mounted from the bottom for about
half the distance. He gave them a hose
to handle while he went about other duties.
When he returned he heard the men shout
ing from the mslrs. He rwhed to the
spot and was informed by Ihe two men
who were left that Vanscoy had Just fallen
over the top step of the partially burned
stair into the fire. He ordered the men
to throw the hose down at about the place
where the man disappeared and ran down
the steps to the first floor of the paint
shop, where the fire wa rapidly working
its way to the front. Here he met Vanscoy
walking out of the flames with the remark.
"They never touched me." So far as could
be seen the man did not have a hair
The firemen kept a line of hose on the
fire ail day ant? the ruin hue ceased to
smoke. The Koutsky brothers, who own
the paint store, are both out of the city,
so it cannot be lcsrned what the precise
damage to their stock will be. It was
stated that there was an insurance of W.VI0
on the building and that Koutsky Bros,
were Insured adequately to cover most of
their loss. E. E. Anderson, on the third
floor, manager for Schmoller A Mueller,
had considerable household goods which
mere destroyed, but these were also pro
tected by insurance. The estimated loss
by fire was about Uft.OMi. It is likely that
at least fi."".! Is covered by the Insurance.
The Stott Stationery company suffered a
loss of about from water in the base
ment and the Tcung Men's Christian asso
ciation estimates its loss at about 130.
which wa insured.

Quite a number of anxiou politicians
visited Clerk J. J. Gillin yesterday and
the object of their concern wa the opinion
of City Attorney Breen of Omaha on the
judges of election at the primaries. Ac
cording to Mr. Breen the Board of Regis
trars who have charge of the revision of
registration are to act as" judge of the pri
mary election. It has been the opinion
here that the mayor and council should
appoint a new and separate body for this
work. This w as done last Wednesday noon.
The clerk said he did not know . whafAt
tomey Lambert's opinion concerning the
point wa. not thst St would be at all
affected by the opinion of Breen. Mr.
Lambert stated last night that so far as
the judges and clerks were concerned, he
had no Intention of following the opinion
of Breen: that Ereen had given out eight
or ten opinions on the elerton law which
had all been turned down by the supreme
court. As to the point of swearing un
registered voters, he admitted that Breen
was possibly right in saying that they had
no rirht to vote at the primaries at all.
He did not give this as his official opinion,
but expects to Investigate the matter this
morning and report the same to the city
clerk. At all events any one wishing to
swear tn hi vote tomorrow will have to
be able to prove his party affiliation by a
reference to a poll book where he last
voted. It is the apparent Intent of the law
to exclude that class of voters from the
primaries who do not take interest enough
in them to see in good sen son that their
names are on the registration lists.

The usual lively Interest has attended
all the meeting of the republican clubs
during the week. Friday evening th
Polish club met at tis hall at Twenty
seventh and J streets and celebrated a
great victory in advance. The meeting was
one of unusual enthusiasm and remarkable
for the large number of candidates present.
Most of the candidates made short speeches
asking the support of the club in the pri
maries. Saturday night the Bohemhui Republican
club met In Smkule's hall in Brown park.
This is the newest .organisation in town,
buf'lt also was most enthusiastic. The
meeting was addressed by W. P. Adkins,
H. C. Murphy and other candidates, and
It Is apparent there will be a strong vote

City clerk, viiy: Iv-ar bir Complying with
your reiust lor our views in writing as
to the rinht of one not repsicred to vote at
the coming primaries, we submit the fol
lowing: In State ex rel Adsir against Prexel. re
cently rteeicled by our supreme court, and
belr.K the last expression of our court on
this question, the following is lound: "The
conclusion reached in respect to the mat
ter last discussed disposes of the objection
that only those who have registered at the
last general election, except first voters
and those moving into the precinct since
t.aid eleciiori. are tiermilted to vote at a
primary election as therein provided for.
It doe not appear to have been the legisla
tive intent to exclude from voting at such
primary election those not having registered
at the lata general election, nor do we
think it competent for the legislature to do
so. Such election must be free to all who
are other wine qualified to participate
therein; where there is a failure to register,
when good and sufficient reasons exist,
this fact shouid not justify disl rancliise
nient of the voter at such primary. State
against Comer, Neb.. 3b&. The provi
sions for registration tefore voting, as w
have feeti. contemplated a registration on
the same day as the primary election, and
those provision having been eliminated, no
obstacle in I lie way of registration, or the
absence thereof, can prevent a voter other
wise qualinod from casting a ballot at
such primary election "
This language is too plain to admit of
douk.t. and it is unquestionably the law of
this state that a qualified voter may. upon
the showing of good and sufficient reason,
vote at the primary election. However, 1
believe .that there is considerable discre
tion vested in ou to determine whether or
not tlie reasons asnigned are sufficient be
fore giving the affidavit. To the end that
fraud may not te practiced under this
rather liberal provision of the law. it would
s-em proj-r that utmost precaution be
taken to de termine the sufficiency as well
as the good faith of I he excuse offered for
not reaieterine. tnquestionahly the two
persons takina the oath with the applicant
should be irecholde rs and should reside in
such proximity to ttie proposed vote r a to
exclude any aoubt of their knowledge as to
the facts to which they swear to. With
such precautions rigidly impose-d, the intent
as well as the plain provisions of the law
will be carried out to its full extent.
