WATCHES Fremer, 16th and Dodge,
The twentieth ttay of the land trial began
Wednesday morning with J. C. Pettyjohn
still on the stand for the purpose of Identi
fying filings on tha records of the Valen
tin land offlca 'during his administration
Following his evidence old soldiers from
the Soldiers' home at Mllford wer placed
on the witness stand. These men were' the
special proteges of A. B. Todd and had been
shipped to Gordon to receive tha necessary
Instructions relative to the lands they were
to file upon. In these cases the declaratory
statements were not only secured, but the
filings On the lands executed In' tbe usual
manner at the Valentine land office, with a
subsequent visit to ' the notorious "wind
mill" claims, all carriage and expense free
iu ma entry men. ma soldiers an made a
second Visit to the lands to carry out the
six months proviso. Neither of them In
tended to Irva on the land, but expected In
soma way to realise something from their
frea Investment. ' Neither would they have
entered the land but from the fact that
their filing fees were paid by others.
Defense Has Surprise.
The defense evidently has something In
the ' nature of a surprise to spring, as it
has not given any sign aa to the number
of witnesses it may summon. In this event
the case Is likely to go to argument Friday.
The first wKness of Wednesday was
Charles E. Simmons, a soldier from tha Mil
ford Home and a former resident of Omaha.
His evidence was of the same general char
acter of all old soldiers secured by A. B.
Todd from the different soldiers' homes of
the country. The witness, had no Intention
of living on tbe land, but said: "I thought
that by filing on the land this way would
be equivalent to holding It, in the same
manner as by a land warrant, and If the
land warrant was good I would have a
piece of land to live on or do with as I
pleased. I would not have filed on the
land had not my fees and expenses all been
James U Armel another of the Mllford
colony told a similar story, being one of
Tood's recruits. , Armel when shown his
homestead papers by Mr. Rush, repudiated
his signature to one of the documents, but
admitted that he had signed the other
documents pertaining tp the entry. He
said: "I aiked Todd what was In it. and
he said .K) or WOO, but the parties who
paid the filing expenses, for the grub and
travel expenses wanted the first chance
to buy the land."
Andrew Corning also of Mllford, told
like story. He said: "I did not file or
ftgn any declaratory statement, though I
made a filing and signed for It at the
Valentine land office. I wag told by Todd
that I would have to stay on the land
one night In the whole five years."

With Fnlnt Interior, Bnt

A young woman In North Omaha Who
has been a cadet In kindergarten work for
a couple of years Is In charge of a room
full of little tads this year. She had never
bad any trouble In discipline until a few
days ago when one boy became obstreper
ous. The young woman she Is little more
than a girl saw that the fatal moment
which she had dreaded for a long time had
come, the moment when she should have to
aaeert her authority by Some" praotleril
demonstration thereof. , , .
But What should she do? The boy ap
peared so complacent. He seemed to have
no fear of anything she could do. Had It
not been such a critical moment she would
have cried. She realized that her whole
authority would be destroyed If she gave
way. 8o she fixed the boy with her most

Johnny stood up and looked expectantly
at her. The young woman declares that
at that moment her mind was a perfect
blank as to what to do next. Then she
thought of a large closet In the room.
"Go Into the closet," she commanded In s
terrible voice. Johnny went Into the. closet
which was the place usually dedicated to
the administering of whippings. The little
school teacher had never whipped a child
and didn't want to try It. But the boy
expected a whipping. The little woman
was at her wits end. Then she thunderd:
"Get down on the floor"," and down went
the little boy on hands and knees.

BETTER POLICE PROTECTION
Snbjeet to be Macassed nt First Joint
Meeting; of Senators nnd
The matter of better police protection for
Omaha will be brought up by the Douglis
county legislative delegation at the first
Jilnt meeting of the representatives and
senators, which probably will be soon after
Attorney John P. Breen has spoken on
legislative needs before the Reel Estate
exchange next Wednesday noon. The dele
gation is alive to the needs of more ade
quate police protection In Omaha and will
favor and urge an emergency approprla
tlon at the next session, thus giving the
city an early benefit of that appropriation.
The Commercial club committee on the
matters of fire nnd police protection will
meet the delegation In a dtty or two.
At present the police department has a
limit of J115.0CO, with only 90 per cent usu
ally available. There are now fifty-five
patrolmen on duty In three shifts, making
any one shift- insignificantly small.' The
question of fire protection Is one that tutu
been brought up particularly by the Insur
ance companies. The delegation will give
that matter a careful hearing. Sonator
Saunders said he was heartily In favor
of nn Increase In the police department,
and believed the others of the delegation
were of similar mind.

T. J. O'Nell of South Omaha said he

Selby Offers Statistics.
W. I Selby offered some very carefully
prepared statistics for the further con

preventing a discussion of them Wednes
day noon. The figures were: Full assess

Mr. Van Dusen said the matters of
water, schools and parks were the three
main things on which larger municipalities
having adjacent territory should consider
consolidation. He expressed opposition to
any law contemplating consolidation with
out a majority vote of each city as
against a majority vote of both cities. The
matter, he declared, should rest on busi
ness considerations, with no political or
sentimental elements. "Provision should
be made," said Mr. Van Dusen, "to direct
the mayors and city councils of each city
to put the matter to a vote of the people
upon the presentation of petitions of 6 per
cent Of the voters."

In preparing "Peer Gynt" for the stage
Mr. Mansfield was confronted by a task
the magnitude of which might easily have
daunted even a more during and persistent
spirit than his own. It has been for years
the opinion of the test of Judges that
"Peer Gynt" was not to be acted. Tha
difficulties presented by the poem are not
merely physical. In addition to Its great
length and the Intimate relation of Its sev
eral phases. It presents an essence so sub.

INTENDED MURDER CHARGED
Colored Man Who Shoots nt
Lady Friend 1 Round
After a preliminary examination In police
court Wednesday morning, James Whit
more, colored, was bound over for trial in
the district court under bond of $500 on
the charge of shooting with Intent to
murder. It Is alleged that Whltmore fired
two Fhots from a revolver at May Reed,
colored, on the night of December 7, when
a quarrel was started over a rent bill.
Whltmore was serving a sentence In the
city J:ill for frightening Mrs. Brown, ITS
South Pccenteenth stieet, when lie was
again arrested on the second shooting
Is a sad picture, but Is portrayed with
fidelity that is almost cruel. It Is the
crowning effort of the actor. The scene
comes as a distinct shock, so great Is the
transition from that which Immediately
precedes It. The encounter with the Button
Molder, where Peer Impotently pleads for
his life. Is most res II "tic, and the clos'ng
scene, where he In permitted to Join with
Solvelg and under her devotion la spared
to do, If possible, something that will save
him from annihilation, Is a genuine climax.
It would be difficult to exaggerate the ef
fect Mr. Mansfield has produced in his In
terpretation of Peer Gynt. "It deserves a
high, If not the very highest, place In all
Sharing honors with Mr. Mansfield are
Miss Dunn nnd Miss Now-k. As Ase, Miss
Dunn shows remarkable capacity. Hi-fcin-ceptlon
of the character Is clear and acute,
and she varies the moods of the mother,
tie. so evanescent and yet so all-permeattng first berating nnd then . fending her boy
and Important that without it the meaning
of the poem is in a great measure lost,
and yet to preserve which in an acting
version seemed for beyond possibility of
Rtcompltshment. That Mr. Mansfield has
succeeded so well In embodying not only
the letter but the spirit of the poem Is a
triumph far greater even than his excellent
Impersonation of it principal character.
Architecture has been called "frosen
music," but scenery Is far from being
"frozen sentiment." The environment ,of
"Peer Gynt" Is very essential to an under-
wlth a swiftness and facility that Is fully
In keeping with the part. Her death sc; ne
Is so absolutely true as to be actually
ghastly. Miss Dunn Is well recalled as a
former member of the Woodward Stock
company at the Crelghton theater. As Sol
velg, Miss Nowak Is somewhat colorless In
the earlier scenes. Her first appearance Is
that of the Innocent, inexperienced girl In
her purity, coming on the man to whom
her heart goes out. In the forest she lacks
that element of warmth which would brln;.'
a girl to forsake her father and mother.

which make the play a sentient thing.
This fact presented ' one of the greatest
problems offered for Bolutlon by the
adapter, but, like the other. It was met
with an Indomitable spirit and a determina
tion to succeed. . How well this essence Is
preserved may be attested by those who
witnessed the scene In the mountains,
where the voice of the Great Boyg is heird,
warning the unfortunate Peer; by the
scene ut the court of the Dovre King,'
where the troils those fantastlo creations
of the Imaginative Northmen were very
nearly realized, and so Impressively pre
sented as to give the most accurate infor
mation of what the great author had In
mind; and, again, in the ship-wreck scene,
where the Mysterious Passenger challenges
the returning Peer and forces him again
from his apparent charitable purposes Into
the old selfish and Inconsiderate man whose
footntepa were lending him directly to the
Button Molder's ladl.
The production Is scarcely less Important
than the conception. It Is the result of one
great Imagination seeking to rtallzc. the
thought of another. Mr. Mansfield has
made his scenery subjective and with it
' supplements the Idea conveyed by the
! spoken word.
To the part of Peer he has brought that
same cireful, studious and artistic cbser-
i vat ion which has marked his course klnce
he became prominent on the stage. The
thoroughness with which he has assimilated
I the role in every detail and the exactitude
1 with which he presents It, In even Its most
minute and apparently insignificant as.
; pects, is but characteristic of the man.
It is In a measure a labor of love for Mr.
Mansfield, for It Is Inconceivable that Peer
should not appeal to him mora strongly
than nry of his recent creations. It is In
such distinct contrast to the gloomy and
depressing character of Don Carlos, or the
sensual brutality and unreasoning tyranny
tunes of one she so lightly knew. It Is
only by deference to the fact that the ac
tion of the play demands it that Miss No- J
wak's Solvelg can be understood In this i
In the closing scenes, however, she rises (
to that height and brings this unassuming !
quality to her assistance, giving there the
fullest notion of the unselfish devotion ol 1
a life that has been spent that another
might at Its close be benefited. This phase
of Miss Nowak s work more than redeems
her earlier shortcomings.
The rest of the cast has been excellently
chosen and each presents his or her share
of the production in a way that Indicates
the careful drilling to which they have
been subjected by the master mind. The
Orleg music under the direction of Mr
Clarence Lucas, is a great part of the ever-
I Ing. The scenery is massive and beauti
fully adequate. Th" audience nt the Boyu
'theater Tuesday night was one cf the larses:
ever assembled theie and the largest thai
Omaha ever furnished for a Mansfield per
formance, and Its expression of satisfaction
must certainly have been pleasing to Mr.

to either. It Is entirely different . with
Peer Gynt. Not only Is there here material
for the artist, but there Is also that Incen
tive to the thinker in the lesson Intended to
be conveyed that moves him to a greater
Mr. Mapsfleld has approached Peer In
this spirit. In the earlier scenes as the
thoughtless, idle, bragging boy, whose
serious nature has not yet been touched,
he gives a sympathetic note to the part
that U easily distinguished. Under the ap
parent carelessness Is discovered the deeper
nature which comes to light on his meet
ing with Solvelg. His encounter with the
Dovre King's Daughter and later with
the Great Hoyg Is merely an incidental
remorse that needs must follow reflection.
It Is a physiological fact that great depres
sion follows great exaltation, and "In ths
cold, gray dawn of the morning after,"
when he had disturbed' the wedding feast
and carried off the bride to dismiss her
later with contemptuous scorn, tt waa but
natural that Peer should feel the reflection
that is evidenced In the supernatural spec
tacle presented. Following this he meets
Solvelg and his better nature springs to
life, but just as he Is about to enter upon
a realltrtlon of this hope comes the Dovre
King's Daughter (Folly) and her Impish
offspring (Consequences) and Peer is thrust
back from the happiness that seems to be
his and Is sent out to expiate alone the sin
he has committed.
The scene at the deathbed of his mother
la one of the most Impressive ever enacted
on the stage. The fantastic Idea of the boy
driving tha dear old woman to the gates
of heaven and tot re pleading with St. Pe
ter to allow her to enter la one that can
scarcely be exceeded In Its peculiar effect.
Mr.' Mansfield has here also freely embel
lished the thought of the poet with his own
great artistic nature and has illustrated It
so thoroughly that It cannot possibly be

man, still big with the Idea of his own Im
