Poaltton, bat Board of Directors
. Preferred McVana tor
E. J. McVann, present commlasloner of
tlie .Commercial club, la the choice of tho
board of directors of the Omaha Grain ex
change for aecretary. The board met Fri
day aXternoon In the office of the exchange
and from ten candldatea aelected Mr. Mo
Vann. After the meeting President Q. W.
Wattlea save out the following statement:'
"There came to our attention a report
that Mr. McVann was about to leave the
Commercial club and take a position In
another city., t'pon Investigation we found
that thla was true, that he had been offered
an attractive position in another rlty and
was aerloiisly thinking of leaving Omaha.
Ve do not want to take him away from
the Commercial club, but since It aeemed to
ua the club wua to lone him at all events,
we did not think it out of the way to make
film an offer. There were ten other men,
and good men. from whom we could have
aelected. but we considered Mr. McVann
aa having the broadest experience tn rail
road rate matters. We have mad Mr. Mc
Vann a proposition and he haa accepted
It with one provision, that the Commercial
club Is found willing to accept hla resigna
tion. I think there ean be no question
about that. Under present arrangements
there will be no combination of the trans
portation Interests of the exchange and
the club. I believe ' Mr. McVann will be
worth much more to the city aa secretary
of the exchange than as commissioner of
the club, since In the position which has
been offered him he will not bo compelled
to do office routine, but will be free ' to
spend his entire time In securing from the
railroads such arrangements as will help
to make Omaha a greater grain market.
The exchange will give him more than he
is getting from the club."
Mr. McVann said he was not in a posi
tion to talk on the matter. He haa not
handed In hla resignation to the executive
committee of the Commercial club.
The city to which Mr. Wattles referred
from which Mr. McVann had received a
flattering offer is St. Louis. He waa con
sidered there for commissioner of the Com
mercial club. The Bt. Ixuls poiiltlon is un
derstood to carry a much larger salary
than is paid in Omaha. It la the under
standing If McVann takes the Grain ex
change position he will receive a substan
tial Increase In salary over what has been

Mr. Wm. Tbos. Lanorgan, provincial con
stable at Chapleau, Ontario, aaya: "I
caught a severe cold while hunting a bur
glar In the forest swamp last fall. Hearing
cf Chamberlain's Cough Remedy, I tried It,
and after using two small bottles I was
completely cured." Thla remedy Is Intended
especially for coughs and colda. It will
loosen and relieve a sever cold in lesa time
than by any other treatment and I a favor
It wherever Its' superior excellence has
be com known.

The general public does not know of the

from Chicago. On one train Friday morn
ing two cars were devoted to supplies for
these unfortunate people. The Northwest

been put to a test in supplying motive
power, but results show they have met the
emergency wjth remarkable success.
The Union Pacific on the train which ar

enthusiastic auditor. Carl Relter. besides
being general manager of the affair and
purveyor of many things necessary,
mounted the boards and told a few stories.
Some were pathetic and out of thla clever

vein to the audience.

worth more than his blank state of mind
when it come to knowing one seat check
from another. Carroll Clary, who used to
be doorkeeper at the Orpheurn before he
became a plutocrat business man, was bock
at the old stand, however, and what Mr.
Morrison didn't remember, he did. Just
beyond Mr. Clary, "as the guests entered
the church," stood Miss Eva I.Ang, Miss
Mary Hill and Miss Marie Hudson from
the Burwood theater, each laden with a
big basket of roses and gowned her
prettiest. The three btossorn sellers cleaned
up about $100 from twice as many roses,
meaning an average price of 90 cents each.
Mr. Morrison added to his glory ly buy
ing the first rose for a silver cartwheel
from Miss Lang and Manager Relter
picked the second for the same price. One
man paid 12 for a posey, but Bob Hhlrloy
paid the highest price, $2.(10, 'for a flower
for Mrs. Wim Manchester. It required team
work on the part of Mr. Morrison and Miss
Lang to wo'rk the. deal, however, though
Mr. Shirley said It was the "lady" who
did It. During the Intermission the flower
sellers and their assistant, the head usher,
passed down the aisle and their entire stock
remaining was exhausted In three minutes.
When It closed M' Lang was offered ti
for her basket and disposed of that.

and the efforts of the players were warmly
commended by applause and. curtain calls.
It required hard work on the part of the
mechanical forces of the Hoyd and Or
pheum to transfer the sceneries and prop
erties and get them back for the evening
performance. But for that matter thirty
six stag hands from all the theaters In
town were behind the acenes and this ag
gregation made light work of tho tasks.
The Orpheum. company gave Its complete
program with some necessary curtailments,
the participants being the Caprice, Lynn &

with her sextette of singers from the

"This was what he loved, to far forth at
night and come upon some group about the fire;
to begin his chant abruptly, ia the midst of con
versation; to see his listeners draw close and
closer, gazing wide-eyed, .half in awe ; to sway
them as the marsh wirds swayed the reeds. At
times, when his sense of power shook him, he
took a savage delight n seeing them turn, one to
another, simple-hearted children of moor and
forest, whose emotions he could mould as a pot
ter moulds his clay."
