IoJnred Ones Are) Worse . . !
The last reports from the 8011th Omaha j
hospital are not so encouraging as thoce I
Blven out yesterday morning. It is said !
" ,, . ,
that all of the patients have taken a sud- ,
den and rather alarming turn for the
worse. Yesterday morViing It was thought
that aeveral of the wounded men had a ;
, , '
chance of recovery, but now no hope Is ;

la said to be likely to prove fatal befure
the others. Ieo Mefjulre was thought to
he the one having the best show, but even
he la not doing well.
The cases outside of the hospital are
doing us well as could be expected. Katie
Tobler still continues to Improve, but It
will be aeveral weeks In all probability
before she la well again. The exact extent
of the Injury to her back has not been de
termined. It may bo nothing more than a
severe bruise nr possibly something of more
serious nature. Jacob Taulson'a condition
Is reported as much better. He hue ceased
to hare the sinking spells which menaced
htm at the first and It la apparent that lie
has recovered from the effects of the shock.
The remains of Joseph KoHkuba still lie
at the parlors of O. H. Brewer's under
taking establishment. No word an to the
disposition of the body has been received.
Probably a Case of gear.
A case of robbery was reported early
Saturday morning. Joseph Sodomka. of
whom little is known except that he has
a bank account of $KtiO to T0O, Is snIJ to
have been held up at Twenty-fourth and K
street and relieved of $5.10. After the
holdup Bodomka took a great fright and
instead of going home to his lodging house
with Joseph Hunipal at Twenty-sixth and
M street he started to run north up
Twenty-fourth street as hard aa he could
go. He nrer stopped tintll he got to tk I
Vinton street car barn.
Here he arrived
In a very much exhausted condition. The
atreet car men took him In charge and
brought him down to South Omaha on the
last car. when the robbery waa reoort.d

gave a description of the men who robbed
htm. At an early hour this morning par
ties called tip the police station and asked
If the police had captured a craiy man
Friday night. On Inquiry It was found
that the reported craiy man was none
other than Sodomka. The party stated
by telephone that lie had seen Bodomka
get off the car at Twenty-fourth and K
nd that after standing on the corner he
began to yell and started running north
on Twenty-fourth without any apparent
cause. He kept on running and yelling as
far as he could be seen or heard. This
report was verified by Investigations.
Bodomka ld not return to the police
station yesterday to see whether there had
ben any resulta from the search of the
officiers, so the police are Inclined to think
that he waa only seised with fright.
Herrr Arraigned for Robbery.
John Berry, the man who escaped from
the county Jail more than a week ago, was
brought down o 'South Omaha yesterday
for a new arraignment. He was In the
first place arraigned on the charge of rob
bing Adam Buskia In his saloon at Thirty
first and W streets. It has later been found
that ho did not rob Buskls, but his bur-
tender. So the complaint had to bo sworn
out anew and a new arraignment had. Berry
plead not guilty and whs bound over to
the district court under U.OOO bonds. He
was returned to the county Jail nfier the
Flary Warrants ot Perved.
The warrants hare not been served In the
case of the three ncgroea, Clark. Wain and
Gathrlght, for the reason that they are not
In Bouth Omaha nor In Omaha. It la likely
that the warrants will lie ket here until
the cases now pressing on the district court
are in a measure disposed of.
The Bouth Omaha police department ex
pressed considerable satisfaction over the
verdict In the O'Hearn case. It waa further
advanced aa an opinion that there would
be no further attempts at lynching the
other captives In the city. That the people
will be willing again to trust to the Judg
ment of the courts and the ability of tho
Several Republican Meetings.
There were several woll attended repub
lican meetings last night. At 8inkulc's hall
there was a large crowd and all the candi
dates were present and expressed u great
deal of enthusiasm at the way the cam
paign la going. It was expected that Judge
Berka would be present to address the
meeting. For some reason he was unable
to le present. There was no lack of good
speakers, however. After the meeting at
Blnkule's hall the candidate went on to
Peter L'vlck's hall, where another meeting
waa In progress.
There waa also a full meeting of the
central committee at the republican head
quartera In the Murphy block. The chair
man, Jay Iaverty, declared that he never
saw such an enthusiastic and prompt com
mittee aa long aa he hae been a resident
of Bouth Omaha. It has been arranged
that the headquarters shall be really a

Patrick's day by the Ancient Order of Hi
bernians of Omaha and ladles' auxiliary
was observed Saturday evening at Crelgh
ton College of Law hall before a large
audience of men and women. M. P. O'Con
nor acted as chairman of the evening.
Ho gave A brief opening address giving
an outline of the purposes of tho Ancient
Order of Hibernians, and urged all men
of Irish blood and faith to become mem
bers of the otder.
A muslcnl program ot several numbers
followed, Including a quartet of Irish mel
odies on the hurp and violin, with Miss
Eileen Mcfrann hs harpist and Mr. Leo
Hoffman as violinist; a vocal solo by Miss
Oertrude O'Connell, violin Solo by Miss
Emily Cleve, with Miss Eileen O'Rourke
as pluno accompanist ; vocal solo by Mr.
Clint Miller, vocal solo by Miss Mamie
O'Brien, and bagpipe selection of Irish
airs by Mr. McDougnll.
The principal address of the evening
was that of Mr. John Rush of Omaha,
who gave a brief outline Of Irish history
and tho reverence In which St. Patrick
la held throughout the world. Mr. Rush
spoke of his forty years', residence In Ne
braska and deplored the disappearance of
the early Irish farmers who settled this
region, saying their farms and homes are
now In the hands of strangers, their former
owners having gone no one knew where.
"The Irish are charged with being a
nomadic race." he said, "and this la not
wholly untrue. The Irish people have been
emigrants for centuries. Yet Ireland Is a
land capable of sustaining a population, of
C'entorr of Irish Struaule.
The speaker then went into the history
of the Irish people for the last hundred
years. "In 1 the penal code of England
was In full operation, a code forged In hell
and executed by satan. A code built for
the virtual enslavement of the Irish race
by the English Parliament, and finally re
pealed by the Catholic emancipation act
through the fearless energy of O'Connfll.
which permitted the reopening of Catholic
schools and permitted the Irishmen to labor
for a living, go to mass on Sunday and go
to market to buy or sell like other people.
This was followed later by the revolution
of 1S48, which gave rise to such patriots as
Thomas Francis Meagher. Smith O'Brien
and John Mitchell, who took up the light
where O'Connell laid It down. True their
work was a failure, and tho Irish people
became scattered as before. Though born
and reared in Ireland, the Irish did not
own a foot of their native land."
He gave a brief review of Jhe Fenian up
rising, through which nothing was gained.
However, by consent agitation and the
work of the Lund league organisation,
which resulted In the church disestablish
ment, and later the county government act.
there were better things promised for the
Irish people.' It was not magnanimity that
caused England to grant these concessions,
but the force of circumstances and progress
of events that In Its selfishness It could not
The speaker hoped yet to see the day
when the Irish langunge should be restored
and spoken throughout Ireland, and that
when an American should In future years
visit Ireland he would have to employ an
Interpreter. He hoped, also, to see Irish
shipping In the splendid ports of Ireland,
and Irish manufactories dotting the streams
Ireland's Bards aad Minstrels.
"The MukIc and Poetry of Ireland" was
the subject of a brief and eloquent talk by
Colonel John O'Keefe of Clinton. Ia. He
gave to Thomas Mooto the palm as the
sweetest of the barda of any nation.
"Her muHlc and poetry," he said, "has
made Ireland famous through all the ages.
Her greut poets and bards lived hundreds
of years before and many after Moore. Ire
land Is the only nation of all the earth that
has a musical Instrument as its national
emblem. This emblem wns emblaioned on
the latnner of Erin centuries before the red
cross of St. tleorge Was borne on the ban
ners of Brituln. The note of her nightin
gales tamed the vultures of England.
Moore touched the chords of the human
heart In all nations and peoples. In him
was embodied the strength of Pindar and
Horace, the genius of Dryden, the sweet
sympathy of Burns, all concentrated In the
grandeur of his beauty of genlug rising as
an Incense from the altar fires of Ireland
and sung throughout the world."

Never before have the women of Omaha
united so earnestly and enthusiastically
as In the campaign which opened last
Thursday for the raising of $l,ono for the
erection of. a Young Woman's Christian
association building on the association lot
at the southwest corner of Seventeenth
and St. Mary's avenue. Besides the loo
young business women pledged to raise
$10.0)0, about fifty other women, among
them some of the most prominent In the
city, have pledged their time to the
For the first time the women are corfj
fronted with a realisation or their mistake
In the past of depending upon their own
efforts to make the association self-supporting
rather than ask the assistance of
business men in Its support. National
workers have criticised this plan In the
past on tho ground that, not being asked
to contribute to It, business men and other

the association actually is doing. The vis

The big clock began Its career by Indi

15 finished a record of over ti.oon.uoo, when
the canvass closed for the Young Men's
Christian association building at Kansas
City at $278,119. Forty thousand dollars
had been subscribed on the condition thst
$150,000 more be raised within thirty days.
Of this amount $.12.57 came In the last duy.

the Dttltith association. Tho women are
looking to this clock aa a mascot, and do
not anticipate any break In Its wonderful
record Just because theirs la the first wom
en's association to employ It. Instead, they
look to the people of Omaha to maintain
this record. The fact that the association
has ita $1S.0"0 lot already paid for Is Im
mensely gratifying to the members.
Numerous Instances of the seriousness of
the women have developed this week. To
make It possible for some women to give
their time to the canvass, several others,
themselves unable to take an active tart,
have loaned their conks and maids to these
women or assumed the family mending and
darning and other duties, for the month.
The teachers of every public school build

factories where the girls have coine to

to the building fund.

in the grand march shortly after o'clock

from any btandpoint it is the best office in the city of Omaha. Opportunities to
secure an office like this are rare. It is not once in two years, that an office like this in

All the ingredients entering into
Dr. Pierce's favorite Prescription are
printed in plain English on each bottle

he is not afraid to tell his patients Just
what this medicine is made of. This
is not true of any other medicine espe

peculiar ailments. This "Prescription"
is also the only woman's medicine sold
through druggists that does not con
