LINCOLN - IN MANY LIGI1TS
Chancellor Andrewi Tells of the Great
President At He Knew Him.
TRAITS OF CHARACTER AND TURN OF MIND
Kindly aad Considerate, With laMei
Ible Honesty of Parpose and a
Faith la nod to the
Chancellor K. Bor.janiln Andrews of the
University of Nebraska filled one of the
numbers of the Calvary Baptist church
entertainment course last night with a lec
ture on Abraham Lincoln. Dr. Andrews
saw Mr. Lincoln twice, and on one of those
occu.lnit talked with him, a thing he said
he oomdilpred one of the rare privileges
of his life, since the great majority of
people living today never saw the great
president. By way of Introduction to his
consideration of the character and works
of Abraham Lincoln, Dr. Andrews gave his
heart is a gllnip.xc of the martyr president
a lie taw him.
"I was with McClellan In Virginia lir the
cninpnlgn of 1W:'," said Dr. Andrews. "One
night we citine no near Richmond, and I
am sorry to say It was thirty -ears before
1 ciime thaj near again, that we could
hear the iIoks bark nnd the bells ring. We
seemed almont to have the city then, but
the very next day we began to. think of
retreat, and the next night we- were re
Two lUni ot Lincoln.
"It was above Harrison's landing, on the
Jamrs river, that we stopped, and to this
place President Lincoln came to review the
army. He and McClollan rode side by
ldc, and It was a rare sight lb note tlif
t'Obtraai between the awkward civilian
and the ttmutith riding ttoldler. Lincoln
bounced so llinl had It nut licuu for his
extreme length of leg and his weight of
foot he undoubtedly would have been
thrown off. Vet for all his awkwardness
and apparent discomfort, he did not forget
to look kindly at the soldiers and doft Ms
hat from time to time.
"The second time I saw Lincoln was
when I, u lleutcnaul In the army, made
my way to the White House, seeking an
appointment to West Point. I shall never
forget the kindness with which that noble
man, busy with the duties, of office and
worn with the cares of war, received me,
nor shall I forget the consideration he
showed me on my comparatively selfish
errand. He took my name and promised
to see Stanton, though it finally turned out
there was ho chance for ma to get to
West Point at that time.
"The room In which Lincoln sat war filled
with books, piles ot them on the right and
on the left. What caught my attention
more than anything else was a large map
of the United States on the wall, drawn
to a scale and showing the seat of "war.
Without leaving his chair. Mr. Lincoln
could scan the map and note the location
of each army and the point from which
each dispatch came. Though I had studied
the geography of -the country, I never had
a thoroughly comprehensive Idea of the
theater of war until I looked at that
Anecdotes of Lincoln.
How Lincoln visited a slave market when
on a trip down tha Mississippi river, and
how an Impression was made on him
whfeh determined his attitude On slavery
was told by Dr. Andrews. It was wRh
groat' satisfaction that he told the story,
related to him by Schuyler Colfax, of Lin
coln's methods In a lawsuit. ..When ths
attorney "for the other -side" would say
"First, wa Intend to prove," Lincoln would
say "We admit it." "Second, wo Intend to
prove," Lincoln would say "We admit It.
When the opposition reached, perhaps, the
sixth count, Lincoln would say "There we
moke contention.' We intend to disprove
It." Through such action he always had
the Jury with him, for the Jurymen rea
soned that tho man must bt honest who
would admit so many things without argu
ment. Dr. Andrews described the debate be
tween Lincoln " and Stephen - A- Douglas,
invincible until he met the rail splitter,
telling how Lincoln asked a Question and
forced Douglas to answer It,, by tho
answer destroying forever hla hopes for
tho presidency. That question was whether
or not Nebraska should be made a free
state If the majority of the people wanted
It a free state. To satisfy his own Idea
of right and to satisfy the northern dem
ocrats, Douglas had to answer In the af
firmative, and the answer being a deroga
tion' of the Dred Scott declxtoiv "damned
Douglas In the south," to use the' words
of Lincoln. Thus Lincoln dethroned Dong
las, after many o( his friends had advised
him not to be- so foolish as to meet the
"Little Giant" In debate. Douglas had
the floor first, and 'was so masterful, so
decisive, so comprehensive, Lincoln's
friends were sure there was nothing left
for him to say.
Warrior and statesman.
Speaking of Lincoln as a military leader,
Dr. Andrewa declared that never In history,
either under Alexander, Napoleon or
Turenne, was a war fought through with
such perfect grand strategy as was the
civil war. Speaking of his diplomacy, Dr.
Andrews gave Lincoln credit, together with
tho prince consort of England, for averting
war between tne two nations over tne
seizure of the British ship Trent by the
United States. IJncnln softened Seward's
message to the British government by cut
ting out words which would have meant
nothing else but war.
"I want to say a word about Lincoln's
faith In God and his prophetic vision," said
Dr. Andrews in closing. "This Is told by
Or ncr 1 Sickles, and It happened, when
Lincoln came to see Sickles lrf the hospital
after the battle of Gettysburg. He said to
tha wounded soldier: 'Sickles, when I
found there was about to be a battle ai
Gettysburg, I got down on my knees and
said, "Hod. I've done all I can do. and con
gress has done all it can do. Now, God,
If You want this country saved. You have
got to do It." .And when I rose I felt sure
wo would win the battle. I now have news
In my heart that we have won a victory
at Vieksburg as great as the one at Qettys

WC.'AI II CLUB 1X8 CK1&1TT
An Important step, and one significant of
the tendency of opinion among club women
regarding the relative Importance of the
state and district federations, was taken
by the clubs of the Third district of the
Nebraska Federation of Women's clubs at
their third annual convention held at Mad
ison Wednesday, In the recommendation to
the state convention that the district fed
eration bo made permanent organisation.
The district vice president Is elected by the
state convention and Is the only permanent
officer of the district. Upon her devolves
the task of arranging district programs,
extending club Interest and club work and
working up the annual meeting of the dis
trict clubs. These meetings, since their in
stitution three years ago, have been merely
councils regarding club work and programs
on the various lines of interest. In view
of the proposed amendment to the con
stitution of the state federation to come
before the next convention providing for a
biennial Instead of an annual state meet
ing, the women generally feel that the dis
trict organisation and Its annual convention
must be made stronger. Coming from the
Third district, the recommendation for the
permanent organization will . carry niucli
weight, as that Is one of the largest and
most Influential districts of the state.
The convention was one of the best at
tended and most profitable that has been
held this year, fifteen towns being repre
sented. The round table, conducted by Mrs.
H. M. Bushuell of Lincoln, whs generally
participated in, the women not only evin
cing a lively Interest In state work, btU a
gratifying understanding of It as well. The
advantages to etubs through direct repre
sentation In the general federation, as well
as through the state organization, were
discussed. Mrs. H. I Keefe, district vice
president, recommended that all clubs. In
making helr year's program, leave at least
one meeting open for the consideration of
the special subjects requested by the state
or general federation.
The necessity of carefullv prepared and
complete reports of state and national meet
ings to clubs by their delegates was em
phasized by Mrs. Bushnell. Any club
wotnan could afford to pay a per capita tax
of cents to the state and 10 cents to the
national for all the benefits the individual
club derlv from such affiliation, even If
that club woman never attended one of the
conventions. The necessity of library exten
sion and tho value of tho state traveling
library to the remote and smaller districts
of the state was Indicated In tha club re
ports, many of the clubs having started
libraries, many more contributing to their
support, and still others asking advice and
suggestions on how and what to do to
secure them. Many plans such as only
women can devise to this end were reported.
A book social, at which the price of ad
mission was one good book, afforded the
start In one town, while pathetic Instances
were related of the struggle and the efforts
that had secured the box of books from the
state traveling library commission for the
beginning at other places.
Tho pla.ee of meeting for next year was
not decided upon, although invitations were
extended from Stanton and Albion. Thurs
day morning's program was brief, short
presentations of library work and" the' work
of the- Consumers' league, with a brief talk
from the chairman, being given. .Tho visit
ing women were entertained In the hospit
able homes ot Madison, and luncheon and
dinner were served Wednesday bv the
women of tha Methodist church, A brief
Informal reception in the church ' parlors
following, each session eliminated tho neces
sity of even a change of gown and af
forded ample and pleasing opportunity for
the women to become acquainted, with the
result that the Madison convention will be
long remembered by those who attended.

A Bensonlan Jefferson Ian.
VALLEY, Neb., April 25.-To the Editor
of The Bee: I have Just finished reading
the leading article In today's World-Herald
that mouthpiece for the modern Judases,
whe, like the Esau of old, would sell the
city s moral and spiritual welfare for the
pottage of trade. It looks to me like a
verification of "God moves In a mysterious
way. hla wonders to perform," for out of
the mouth of his enemies has come the
Information the people wanted to know:
What manner of man Is Benson. It has
placed before the people of Omaha In
whoVe minds the epidemic of crime through
which the city has Just passed Is still
fresh Its solemnly stated opinion that Ben
son would use his authority and Influence
to remove the cause of the crimes.
In Its own columns, In reporting the
trial of Jay O'Hearn, It stated that "drink
ing" and "saloon" were the worde most
frequently met in the testimony. Can It
be possible that It la now upholding' tha
conditions that caused this unhappy fact?
Shortsighted World-Herald! Its article Is
the biggest advertisement Benson could
have. The Bee might have screamed until
It was (figuratively) red In the face, with
less promising results. Benson no longer
appears as "republican candidate for
mayor," but the champion of clean muni
cipal government and a cleansed criminal
The people of Omaha have had a lesson.
They want the city streets to be safe for
unarmed pedestrians; the taxpayers' bur
den lessened by the diminution of criminal
prosecution, the cost of which is . now
enormous, and they want clean municipal
government by officials who have the whole
city's welfare at heart, and not simply
the moneyed Interests. '
My ancestors vo'. d for Thomas Jefferson,
and their sons followed the example, but
If Benson Is the man described In today's
World-Herald, Oodspced Benson.

OMAHA. April 36-To the Editor of The
Bee: There seems to be a tendency on the
part of the public to misinterpret your ar
ticle ot recent Issue relative to the case
of Mrs. Bennett on North Sixteenth street.
It Is a fact I was called to see her,
also that I insisted on her Immediate re
moval to some hospital. Their finances
were very' limited and yet they positively
lefused to accept accommodation at the
county hospital. I made several efforts to
secure a bed In some chsrlty ward, but
fafled, and so telephoned her son, adding
that t would gladly give my services If
the hospital expenses were met.
The health commissioner was notified an
hour after I saw ths patient and promised
to assume charge of the case, hence my
reason for not returulng.
I regret exceedingly the unfortunate In
cldent, yet I teol the family Is entirely to
blame for tbelr Indifference to the patient
and refusing assistance at the county hos
pltal, when they have been, so I am told.
county charges on several occasions.
That the police were not notified until
1:M p. m. was In no way my fault. My
responsibility ceased as soon as the health
oftlce was Informed of the case and this
was done at 10 a. m.

was then as now deservedly popular. In
making his arrangement Mr. Presby ha
barely disturbed the dust that had accu

It In any of Its attractive features. It was
thoroughly enjoyed last night by the rather
meagre audience that assembled at the
Boyd to welcome Miss Crosman and the
clever player folk who are making the
tour with her.
Miss Crbsman Is one of the most accomp
lished comedienne and brings to whatever
part she undertakes a carefulness of
method and a certainty of accomplishment
that assures her success if such a thing be
possible. She Is devoid ot that bane of
modern acting, mannerisms, and enter
with a est and earnestness on the por
trayal of whatever chsracter she assumes.
A certain nervousnes of manner Is her
only distinguishing mark but even this var

It is really more of the role than of the
actor. In her present play she Is the sim
ple, straightforward woman endowed plent

by a keen sense of the ridiculous as well
a 8 of propriety. In one of her scenes with
Mr. Putnam In the second act she treats us
to the purest comedy, but other are
marred by a. tendency to the farcical. Es
pecially Is this true of the scene In this act
with Mr. Pitt. Over It all. though, is the
Charm of the clever woman, who by her
thoroughness and capacity, make a rather
indifferent role a most amusing one.
Mr. Putnam most ably seconds Miss Cros
man's efforts and gives to the quality of
the comedyta distinct flavor. Mr. Pitt'
conception of the role of the Jealous hus
band 1 rather broad and the same Is true
of Mr. Herbert's Idea of Professor Brown.
Miss Tyler Is good as the wife. Other In
