toaat of "Kindred Societies." Lord Rose
bery, who waa received with great enthus
liam, said that when he cnjne there he
knew that he ahould hear a great deal that
would Interest him. In that bo had not
been disappointed, but he came to hear one
thing fall from Dr. . Murray's Hps, and
that had not fallen. , lie wanted particu
larly to know and It waa worth coming
some sixty miles in a motor car at the
legal rate of speed-nnd under all the moral
and legal obligations laid down In an act
of Parliament to hear It what was Dr.
Murray's opinion of President Roosevelt.
Might he offer one observation with regard
to the controversy, and It wag .thle. that
the blow struck at the recognlied spelling
of the English race waa a blow struck at
morality Itself. As a well known states
man said on a famtius occasion.- he heard
a smile. . But he thought he could prove
Jbll, vase. ..Who was It who were hampered
hy the laws of spelling? It waa only the
conscientious and the virtuous. The un
scrupulous and Intrepid epelled ahead ac
cording to phonetic rules of their own and
produced a result full of acceptation to
themselves and sometimes understood hy
others. But the man of conscience puizled
oyer his spelling, and he waa not at all
sura that our archaic rules of spelling, laid
down strictly as they were from tradition
and as stereotyped by dictionaries, had not
filled half the lunatic asylums of the coun
try. The unscrupulous man spelled ahad,
but the conscientious man pondered until
his brain got addled: tried the word on
paper In half a dozen different forma be
fore he ventured to commit It to his final
manuscript, and In that way his Intelli
gence reeled. Think of those words that
were epelled "believe" and "conceive," and

LINCOLN. Oct. :. (Special ) Get.rg L.
Sheldon and Mrs. Sheldon spent the day
in Lincoln at the Lindell hotel. Many
visitors called during the day and late in
the afternoon the two went calling upon
friends. This la about the Ust diiy of net
Mr. Sheldon will get until election, aa he U
booked i:t fur nieetlnes every day. Bf-
'fore election he will sH'nd three -day In
"We have been having good melints,'1
aid Mr. Sheldon, "and 1 am wll satislled.
The people have come out In good num
ber and I appreciate, the courteous treat
ment I hove received. During the last
week most of my time lies been In the
,Third dlstrlft and I believe Judge Boyd
i will be elected with the usual majority. He
j Is strong with the people."
Mr, Sheldon has quit trying to answer
the lale statements in the democratic
i press concerning him. At the meeting tn
' Newman Grove he made the statement
he had received a pass from the Burling
! ton railroad and had given It In person
to Mr. Ager. the political agent of the
Burlington, without using It. The demo
cratic papers reported him faying the pass
had been handed back to him by Mr. Ager.
"What I said was reported in The Bee
correctly, after that meeting," Bald Mr.
Sheldon, "but about three daya later the
World-Herald printed a deliberate false
hood about It.
"I expect to spend three daya in Douglas
county before election and get acquainted
with more of the people of the metropolis.
In the meantime, however, I am expecting
a good vote there."
Rose la Satislled
From a republican standpoint the cam
paign Is progressing nicely and according
to Chairman Rose of the state committee
he is well satisfied and looks for the usual
republican majority In the coming elec
tion. Chairman Allen of the democratic
state committee talk hopefully also and
both committees are starting 'in on a whirl
wind flnlsh. With the aid of the railiouds
the democrats are bending every effort to
elect A. C. Shallenberger governor over
George L. Sheldon and while the repub
licans believe there Is no doubt Mr. Shel
don will be elected hand down, every turn
of the campaign will be watched carefully.
Sad Daya for InlversWy.
Poor old university. It was beaten at
foot ball and It cannot start riots. Ames
turned the first trick and the high school
has shoved It off the riot table. The stu
dents are gentle enough to eat out of the
hands of strangers. It takes a couple of
policemen to keep the high achool boys In
line and they are having poor success. In
fact, the principal of the high school has
to be guarded by policemen while going to
l.ls meal, while the university professors
walk the atreets unmolested. The melan
choly das hsvs come for the old "unl."
Its old "Hoo! Rah! Rah! Hoo! Rah! Rah!"
sounds like the gentle cooing of a dove.
And there was a time when this old "Hoo!
Rah! Rah!" shook the plate glass windows
In J.he store buildings. There wsa a time
when it struck terror to the heart of the
policeman. Peace-loving men . and gentle
women used to hide under the beds when
the gallant band swept through the streets
to 4hlsdear old tune. There was time
when the high school students used to
follow this bsnd around glad to get the tall
end of the cheers shouted at the big guns
by those who feared them. Do they do It
now? Well, not much. They do say the
university boys tske to the woods when
the high school boys start out. They do
say the university boys talk In whispers
when a high school boy comes along. Is
there any fighting going on between the
freshmen and sophomores over taps and
such things? Well, not as sny one has
heard of; but they do say the university
boy play old maid after dark.
It's all very sad.
No longer do theae terrors drill Into a
soda fountain, get theirs, and walk out
without looking at the check. Not much.
j The whlte-aproned clerk would spank them.
It's a tame set, that.
High Schaof Terrors.
The high school students? Every day at
noon Principal Sanders marches out be
tween two great blue-ooated policemen.
They are there to protect him. The boys
charge he'beoke up their foot ball team,
and they really had a team. The news
papers In Lincoln are calling the boys all
kinds of names. They are getting more
space than the 'university crowd ever got
tn Its palmiest day. They are after Sand
era with a will. Notwithstanding the pres
ence of the policemen, they have succeeded
In balancing a few potatoes and such things
on his hat on one or two occasions. Flv
of them have been arrested and will he
tried In police court tomorrow. They were
up a week ago, but they didn't go to the
alatlon alone. Not much. Over 100 fellow
students went down with them. Mr. Sand
ers wss there, too, but he had policemen
to look after him And the high school
boys have most of ths town agalnxt them.
Several parents have telephoned the police
they will not help the boys oul of their
troubles. No one hsa heard any of them
asking for help, though. It waa Chief
Cooper himself who sent tor a lawyer to
help the boys out. They were willing to
wlr their case by brute strength and
awkwardness. Certainly a new era haa
dawned upon schon' life 'n Lincoln. Aud

"The Wlsard of Ox" ha come back to
the Boyd this season with added lustre.
Stone and Montgomery, the old scarecrow
and tin man, are not there, but George
Stone and Fred Nice are, and that Is one
reason why yju don't find time to grieve
for your old friends, great as they were.
The tw'o new leaders are funmaker from
the auld sod. Many people sat through
the performance and laughed and shook
and called back this pair. George Stone

sembles his distinguished namesake, and
Nlee aupplles the part that Montgomery

that you would notice out loud.

It Is evident "The Wlxard of Ot" has
lost none of Its fsselnatlon for Omaha the
atcrgoera. It will be at the Boyd tonight
and tomorrow night, with a special matinee
"Mr. smooth" at the Bnrvrond.
A laughable farce comedy full of ridic
ulous rltuatlons Is presented at the Bur
wood this week In William Collier s "Mr.
8mooth." The play la not merely smuslng,
it is laugh compelling, and It haa move
ment and vivacity from beginning to the
end. The plot Is based on a confusion of
, names caused by Joe Patton's asumptlon
I of the name of his friend, Cornellu
! Smooth, and thereby imposing on the ho
pltallty qf Arthur Chillelgh, Smooth's
I father's) former business psrtner. Jt re
quires a glib tongue and a quick mind to
get htm out of all the trouble he get into,
especially since he falla In love with Mr.
Chillelgh' daughter, but he rises nobly to
the occasion every time much to the merri
ment of the audience. Everything comes
out all right and It is the reel Mr. Smooth
who is denounced st the close Instead of
the lm poster. '
Albert Morrison gives sn excellent In
terpretation of the imposter and Miss Kit
llott Is entirely satisfactory aa Rose Chil
lelgh, with whom the Imposter falls In
love. Marie Hudson has an Important part
in the cast aa Mies Angelica Chillelgh, a
maiden woman with a decided prejudice in
favor of matrimony. Mary Hill also has a
leading role aa Vera Vane, a Chicago girl.
and takea the part' well. Fern Maycllff
makes a very pretty woman's maid. Carl
Fey leavea the villain's role for a week and
appears to good advantage as Dolt, a
thick headed servant. Charles Scoflcld
furnishes comedy In the. part of Glib, a
very funny valet. Grant Simpson, a bash
ful lover, and John Todd, a the' real
Mr. Smooth, are Important factors In the
comedy of the play. Harry Long won
special recognition In a new character,
that of a race track bookmaker, falling
easily Into a low comedy -part.
The staging of thllay under Harry
Long la up to the usual Mandard. "Mr.
Smooth" will run Ale -the -.week with the
Vaaderllle at the Orphean.
The bill at th Orpbrum offers two nov
elties that ought to secure a great deal o
attention during tiie week. It may not b.
exactly correct to refer to Mme. Edith
Helena as a novelty, for ahe Is not a freak
nor a curiosity, but an artist, with a won
derful voloe. She was In Omsha two
years ago, and since then haa traveled ex
tensively In. Europe, singing and studying
Her voice Is a pure soprano of remarkable
range, and loses none of its sweetness In
its highest register. The lone comes pure
and limpid end apparently without atraln.
Mme. Helena selects such srlas as give her
opportunity to properly display her won
derful organ. Her reception last night was
remarkably enthusiastic, and she shquld
prove a great hit during the -eek.
The other high spot Is Mile. ' Rens shd
her horses. These sre two besutlful ani
mals, well broken, and, with their accom
plished rider, present some very attractive
pictures on the sfage, as well ss going
through some pretty paces. Flske and
McDonough have an Set that Is worth

the shafts home and., not far enough to
spoil the comedy. It la well conceived and
presented. Kates Brothers, eccentric acro
bats, are good, and Bedinl and his dog
present a aeries of stunta that are worth
watching. Ferry, the "human frog," Is
surely the most accomplished of contor
