Mr. Saliter (or Battier), waa here Just the
Friday before the murdtr, and he had the
package, and, aa 1 waa not at home and
it waa a valuable package, he did not Ilk
to leave It, aa he intended to com buck
to Laroy from Omaha. Poor boy; it waa
too bad to take the life of auch a useful
life. He waa a young lawyer. Now there
la aomethlng wrong, aa I have been waiting
and looking every day foj the package.
The man that ha the paotage must not
b aa honeat man or he certainly would of
sent It to m and again why did ne writ
to m at all. I do with I knew the right
of It and had my package. If It la not too
much trouble to write to me I will be
greatly obliged to you. I have a friend
her In. IKoy that expecia to be In
Omaha before a great while and he la
folng to Inveatlgat . Into the matter and
have written to the chief of polio there
In Omaha and I hop the peraon that ha
the package will be found. If neceaaary I
can send the letter that waa written U. m.
Your very truly.
MRS, W. H. STRONG, LeRoy, Minn.
P. 8. I got a letter from the supposed
foatmaater algned Mr. Andrew Donaldson,
a that your name7 Pleaae write me fi
I think there is aomethlng wrong some
where. Chief "aye It I Fraad.
The letter waa shown to Chief 'of Police
Donahue Tueaday morning, and h doea
not hesitate to as.? that the acheme la a
fraud to Indue Mr. Strong to put up a
anug aunt tor the recovery of the package.
If auch one really exists. No auch person
aa named In the letter has been murdered
anywhere In or near Omaha, to the knowl
edge of the police, and no such person as
Lawrence Blmpaon has' ever been con
nacted with the register f deed ofllee In
Omaha. The possibility la that Satller
may have paaaed through the city and had
Ills pockets picked on a, train of letter
and some sort of A, package, which the
thief, finding valueless to hlmsellf, . seeks
to make a little out of It, The game la an
old on ;ynd Ha In all .respects similar to
1 th 'express, package": scheme that has
been played with more or less success In
Omaha and elsewhere. " .
The. postofflc officials know of no auch
postmaster as Andrew Donaldson In . th
state of Nebraska.
The who! affair shows on Its face that
some smooth party Is trying to work Mrs.
Strong out of some cola for the recovery

Twenty-five years and a little over ago
a slip of a girl with a figure, a face and
a voice that have never been forgotten
by those who saw her, sang her way Into
the hearts of the Omaha people, and through ,
all there years ehe has remained enshrined
In . th warmest ' affections of those who
have watched the girl grow Into the woman
aa th town has grown Into the city. Fay
Templeton has never been less than a fa
vorite In Omaha, and In all likelihood will
never be. It Is no disparagement to George
M. Cohan's play, nor to the other In the
company, to ay that the great bulk of the
people who assembled at the Boyd theiter

associated In Omaha that the one always

Farnam streets the first real theater
Omaha had and that first performance of

by those 'who were fortunate enough to
ee It as Is the delightful performance ehe
gave last night. Never mind, Mary: you're,

Fnrtr-flv Minutes from Broeaway is
a cueer combination of comedy and melo
drama, put together with much technical
skill, and permitting the Introduction or ai
lenst two clearly, cut characters, In addi
tion to the conventional parsons who move
through play of all orts. Mary Jan
Jenkins Is a housemaid, and In the develop-
ment of her peculiarities Miss Templeton
has shown a capacity for comedy that Is
far and away beyond what was expected
of her. She ha lifted a play that would
have been merly funny In the care of a less
gifted person to the realms of genuine
merit, and has given It a vogue that It
doesn't Intrinsically deserve. It Is unit
likely that Mr. Cohan saw the possibilities
of tha role In the hands of a competent
person, and .yet It Is Improbable that he
expected It to be so endowed with delight
ful life, aa it ha been by Miss Templeton.
She baa certainly enriched th author'
dream until It 1 a scintillating gem. And

awkwardness that 1 th more laughable

Mr. Maurice Elliott Is playing ths part of
Kid 'Burns, Mr. Victor Moore being laid
up In Denver with typhoid fever. Elliott
gives a very satisfactory presentment of
the -worldly wise young man, full ot city
slang, suddenly set down In a country
community. He doesn't overdo the part
and In the one or two strong scenes that
are hla reaches the climax quito faturally.
The desire was strong to see Mr. Moor
in th part, but Mr. Elliott doesn't need
to apologise for the work he did last r.lght.
The others in the cast are quite Capable
of giving Mlaa Templeton th splendid sup
port she deserves.
The piece Is staged very appropriately,
and the Incidental muslo Is of the catchy
Cohan type. Th principal songs, "Mary
Is a Grand Old Name," and "So Long,
Mary," were already well known, but Miss
Tsmpleton's singing of them waa none th
lea enjoyable for that reason. The Bf yd
theater waa filled last night with an audi
ence that waa quite demonstrative in It
enthusiasm, and which showed every ex
ternal symptom of being highly enter
tained by ths performance.

Omaha, Imperial City
Th wisdom of th r.ilroads in aocedlng
to tne demands of the board of governors
that the rates be put into effect a day
earlirr this year, was shown In Omaha
Tuesday morning by the Increased crowds
which flooded the city gates to join In
the festivities which' had been prepared.
Every morning train was crowded to the
guards and the cry of most of the road
was for mora equipment. Th Union Pa
cific No. 4 cam In from the west with
extra coaches and all filled, with people
standing In the aisles. The Burlington
trains were all crowded and the Burlington
people still stick to their first, estimate
of one-third' more people to come to
Omaha than came laat year.
The Missouri Pacific Is literally swampod
with bualness and It was given out offi
cially at the Missouri Pacific offices In this
city that there would be at least 1,500 peo
ple from their territory' who would be un
able to get her on the trains after reach
ing the depots and expressing a desire to
be brought in. Every available coach of
that road has been pressed Into service
and a special train will be run from
Nebraska City Wednesday. The Missouri j
Pacific is short of equipment because'
everything Is pressed Into service for the
Karnlval Krew at Kansaa City, the Vflled 1
Prophets at St. Lquls, the state fair at
Sedalla and the atat fair at Little Rock.
The Omaha representatives have made
strenuous efforts for more cars and en
gines, but they were needed for the other
More Than All the Week.
The morning trains on the Wabash and
Chicago Great . Western brought In more
people Tueaday than they hav for the
last week altogether. The street rail

so noticeable on their lines from the depot.
where half-minut service Is being given,
but a visit to the depots show hundreds
'walking uptown that they might see the
wonderful growth of the Jobbing district I
and the many new building which are
being erected there. . - - '
George West of the Northwestern says
his road Is bringing In more people than
ever before, ao the people must be here.
The streets show they are here and they are
here. Added to the attractions of the
parades and the carnival Omaha ha other
attractions this year which were not to be
seen In former year and these consist of
the gorgeous new stores, which have been
opened for the benefit of visitor a little
In advance of thelf time. These are prov
ing great attractions and the stores tn
Omaha were busy spot Tuesday morning.
People Are Awakealag,
"People of Nebraska and western Iowa
seem to be realising more and more the
value of Omaha to them as a retail trading
point and many have made arrangements to
prolong thetr stay over that ot former
years," said Ttobert Cowell of the K II Pat
rick store Tuesday morning. "There Is not
a merchant in Omaha but who feels the
Impetus of the renewed retail activity In
the city. This 1 no spontaneous affair for
the benefit of the fall trade, but is In keep
ing with the growth of the state. Mer
chants ar not overdoing it, but simply de
veloping on conservative lines aa th
growth ot the 'immense territory .back of
Omaha demands. The conditions" 'In Ne
braska are remarkably good and people are
beginning to realise ' that Omaha Is their
natural trading point. The fact Is, ths
merchants of Omaha were compelled to In
crease their facilities to meet the actual
demands for more space to handle their
business. The growth of Omaha's retail
establishments la legitimate and In keeping
with the growth In population and other
lines of Industry."

rested he had skipped to Sioux City, la.,
going from there to South Omaha and thrn
returning to Lincoln. Mr. Ellison gnt word
of hla return to Lincoln and notified the
