Reforms Rare to feme.
"The editors who are disposed to ridicule

a century ago would have denounced as
degrading to literature. The editors of the
next century will In turn marvel at the un

"Since our language has been constructed
through unceasing change, literary men
should welcome new words and new spell

Frank K. Mnorea aa a f.ratefnl Friend.
OMAHA, March i'l To the Editor of Tha
Uce: Omaha never saw a more generous
minded man than Frank K. Moores. The
local press teems with proof of the truth
of this statement. His loyalty to friends
was one of his most striking traits. But
he also had the rare quality of gratitude,
as a case I am about to cite finely demon
strates. Thirty years ago a tall, handsome young
man appeared In the IlersM-office, and,
with fine and modest bearing, introduced
himself to its editor. With suitable apology
and explanations he said that he had just
been appointed hs passenger agent at
Omaha for the Wabash railroad. He had
heard some klrid things said of me In re
gard to helping young men, nnd he hud
come to see whether I could venture to
belli him. He hud come from St. Joseph,
1 Mo., but he had no friends either there or
In Omaha whom he could nk for such a
favor as he greatly needed. He wanted
somebody to aid him or he would Jose the
place to which he had lieen promoted 111
the railroad service, and he wanted to
know if. after all he had said for himself,
I would go on his bond for $J,ieo, whlcll
was necessary before he could enter upon
his new duties. He won my confidence,
and I signed his bond for that amount, In
which Mr. layman Richardson Joined me.
Twenty-two years Inter I was appointed
surveyor of customs at Omaha and dis
hurslng officer for the construction of the
new postofflcn building by Crover Cleve
land. The double bond I had to give was
a very heavy one. I did not need the help
of Mayor Mcores. Walking up Farnam
street the next day after my appointment
I met the mayor. He was moving at a
rapid pace. This was his greeting: "Hello,
Oeorge Miller, where have you leen all
day? I have been hunting for you ail
j morning. Voy have to give a big bond
unaer your appointment, end l to
go on that bond. When 1 came here a poor
and friendless young man may years ago.
you and Lyman Richurdxnn went on my
bond, and I now want to go on yours."
Nothing could dissuade him. and he had
bis noble wny.
This Incident illustrates the generous
heart or our dead mayor, end it Is the
more worthy of record In The IJee because
at the time he was a man of means ayd
financial standing, and my own personal
circumstances had changed. Insomuch that
our respective positions had been completely
reversed. . OKOROE I-. MILLER.

Sentence Im potted by Judge Troup on
Another South Omaha Highwayman.
standing- Hetneen Tito Cratches Fnrd
Listens to Ilia Doom and
Timely Words from tha
Michael Ford, convicted Of an attempt to
hold up the saloon of Leo Roemer In South
Omaha December 17, was sentenced to
seven and a half years In the penitentiary
Saturday afternoon by Judge Troup. In
passing sentence Judge Troup told Ford
he would have given him the full penalty,
which is fifteen years. If It were not for
the had condition of his health.
Ford stood before Judge Troup lo receive
sentence propped up between two crutchea.
His left ankle, which he sprained In an at
tempt to escape from Jail, Is still too weak
for him to use. He spoke very briefly
when asked by the court why aentence
should not be passed upon him. W. W.
Dodge, his attorney, asked for the mini
mum sentence of two year, as Ford's
health was very poor and h might not
survive even the short sentence. H also
referred to the fact that James P. Maher,
Ford's accomplice was convicted of plain
assault, the maximum penalty for winch
Is ninety days in the county Jail.
Jndae'a Timely Words.
"At tliis time." said Judge Troup in pasfc
Ing sentence, "any man can earn a good
living or even a liberal competence If he
wants to work. lAhor is in great demand.
In the face of this when men will hold up
their fellowmen at the point of a deadly
weapon and compel them to give up tho
competence they have rightly earned there
is a call for all good men to do what they
can to put down these conditions. Tou and
your companions have-brought the name
of Nebraska Into disrepute. If it were not
for the state of your health I would give
you the limit. 1 hope when you come out
of the penitentiary you will be better in
health and morals and will come back and
lead an honorable life."
Before the sentence was Imposed a mo
tion for a new trial was argued and over
ruled by Judge Troup. Attorney Dodgu
made a hard effort to secure a new trial
on the grounds the defense had been forced
Into trial without time for preparation and
that new evidence had been secured. Judge
Troup said he did not think the defense
could have been Improved upon and that
the new evidence was not sufficient to war
rant a retrial.
J. Walter MeF.lhannon. Use uf Fastest
Linotype Operators In Country,
Kills Himself.
J. Waller McKlhannon, ug"d 111 years, a
linotype operator, committed suicide by
taking a large quantity of strychnine in hln
room at the Center hotel, 3mj North Seven
teenth street, at 1(1 o'clock last night.
Death ensuedun hour later. In spite of the
efforts of Police Burgeons Morsman and
Wills to revive him.
The circumstances connected with the
suicide us related by other occupants of
the bote) are that McKlhatition had been
low spirited during the dicy. causing hlin Jo
! Indulge In liquor. The cause of hts ne
I pressed spirit was soli to be the separation
from the woman with whom he had been
living as man and wife, which took place
Thursday. 'The' woman took herHtilngs and
moved to 612 South Thirteenth street, where
she i3 now living as I,oii Batram. The
separation weighed heavily upon McElhan
non, so he had confided to acquaintances.
Ijist night he went out. and. although he
had been seen to be badly under the in
fluence of liquor during the eurly evening,
returned with an envelope containing the
polnon. The paper was marked with the
name uf the Howell Drug company. Six
teenth and Capitol avenue. Soon after re
turning to his room lie was heard to call,
hut when a man In the next room tried to
enter the doors were fonnd to be locked.
This caused several moments' delay, ai'd
when entrance was at last secured the
poison hud almost done Its work. The police
were notified and the surgeons sent to the
scene, but their efforts were futile. Coroner
lirailey"took charge of the ibody.
McKlhannon was known to be one of the
fastest linotype machine operators In the
country. He was born at Atlanta. jCla., and
hud worked In nearly every large city In the
Cnlted States. A letter In his clothing
indicated his mother lives at Winder, Ga.,
und thut he has a wife and children, but
their address wus not mentioned. A brother
at Atlanta is also mentioned. He came
to Omaha about two years ago for the
first tlino from Washington, D. C. lMing

The brief season nf Kngllsh grand opera
closed last night with a tremendously fine
production' of the "Valkyrie." The or
chestra did splendid work under Mr.
Behenk's capable baton, lie Is master of
the art of conducting and gives a very
finished effect with the Instruments under
hla control. Then, too. If scenery is part
of the opera and It certainly has a big
share In producing fine effects the stags
settings were triumphs of scenic art, espe
cially In the second wnd third acts; the
rough mountains, the flying clouds, the
restless, shouting Valkyries of the third
act being absolutely thrilling. It cer
tainly Is deplorable that there was not !
"packed" house to hear and enjoy this
geni of the Nibelungen Ring series.
Miss Rennyson made a chrmlng and
lovable Blegllnde. Physically she fitted the
part to a nicety und did some very good
work as an actress. Her voice showed
to best advantage In the love scenes with
Rietmund. and a feeling of comfort Is ex
perienced that the war maidens have so
nobly stood by her in her sorrow. The
fact that Miss Rennyson could do so wsll
In such opposite style of music as tha
Italian style of "La Boheme" and tliM
very trying Wagnerian music shows her
to be a versatile singer. Her voice shows
a great improvement over the work she
did last year aud she has sung her way
Into Omaha hearts.
Of William Wegener nothing but words
of praise csn be said or written. His fine
tenor robusto, softening in the higher
tones to beautiful head tones, crealed the
greatest enthusiasm. His love making was
superb, being full of fervor, tenderness
and with a keen sense of the dramatic
possibilities, the bext opportunity for ef
fective work being, as was the case with
Sieglende. In the first act. The hymn to
spring was a delight In itself, and his
renunciation of the Joys or Wuhalla for
Bieglende's sake ws nobly done. Pleg
mund's combat with Hundlng was not
effective, lacking reality. Hunding's part
was taken by Mr. Parker, who did not do
as well as on Friday night. His voice
was Inclined to be dead'' in all of 1 bis
work. Neither was he particularly force
ful In the part assigned him.
Woten's pert wus very well done by
Ottley Cfanstnn. anil it does not give much
opportunity to display his voice except
In the last act. when his fatherly devo
tion Is fully felt In his song moderating
Brunhllde's punishment. Miss Crawford
only appeared In the one scene, but did
good work ss Krlckn.
Of the Valkyries. Brunhilde Is. of course,
the most brilliant role. Miss Rita New
man's work in this was superb from her
first thrilling shout of the Valkyrie bund
to her last song entreating her fatier to
forgive her for her rash disobedience in
protecting flegtnund. Miss Newman did
fine work last year and fully kept up the
favorable impression she made last year.
The assembling of the bend among the
rocks, their shouts of laughter and calls
to each other was most excellently done.
As a matter of fact, the whole opera
was given with a great amount of finish
and there was liurle to call forth any un
favorable criticism.
The matinee performance of "Faust" did
not leach the excellent stu"dard set by
"r.a Hoheme" and "Die Wnlkurp." These
two operas were given, with remarkable ef
fect and balance..
The cast for the afturnoon Included Mine.
Miner as Marguerite: Mr. Francis Maclen
nan. whom we heard last season In h
title role of "Parsifal," ns Faust; Mr. Har
rison W. Rennett as Mephlstophelcs; Mi s
Claude Albright n . Sfc!e1 : - Mr. - Arthur
Deane as Valentine 'and Miss Helen Petri
as Martha. MrY Maelennun sang his pa't
In a conscientious and muslcianly manner,
with much beauty "of tone but little pas
sion. Hla Interpretation of the cavatlna
"All Hall Thou Dwelling Pure nnd Holy"
wns most satisfactory, although he marred
j his climax by avoiding the c. an oppor
tunity wnicn most tenors use witli avidity.
Ills singing In the last part of the garden
scene was unusually artistic.
Mme. Miner's Marguerite was veiy good.
Her voice Is well trained nnd tru.;. Oc
casionally she seemed to have 'trouble in
attacking her upper tones. She also lacked
In intensity, although she rose to a con
siderable height In the trio. Her rendition
of the Jewel Song was n pleasure and put
to shame a certain great prima donna who
recently had this number upon her program
in Omaha.
Miss Albright's Hiebel was just fair. She
has a pleasing personality and shows much
earnestness In her work.
The Mephlsto of Harrison Hennett was a
conscientious study, hut artificial in its
ring. Mr. Dennett's voice is not one of
natural beauty.
Valentine was distinctly bud In the first
net. How he did flat! He redeemed him
self to h great extent in the duel and
death scene, but his production is wretched,
he will never sing true until he mends his
method. His voice in quality is pleasing.
As Martha Miss Petri did delightful work,
although the part Is small.
Two of the choruses were tlrst-cluKs, tiie
street revel "valro eeoed" and the soldiers'
chorus. These were given with absolute
Intonation and much spirit.
The orchestra, under the leadership of
Mr. Kmanuel did thoroughly satisfactory
work. It Is to be hoped that Omaha may
have the pleasure, of hearing the Savage
forces every season.- Music lovers will al
ways give them' a warm welcome.
