The Commercial club commute, which
went to Lincoln 'Wednesday to preaent to
the legislative committee on labor argu
ments why the proposed double shift bill
for the fire department should, not ba passed
returned well pleased with the showing
r . Just what kind of a report the labor com
mittee will present Is not yet known, but
the Commercial, slub oommlttee hope to
.defeat the bill on purely business grounds.
The Douglas .sounty delegation Is divided
on the .matter- . . ; ...
The bfir wm , fc brought up Thursday.
Those whd went for the Commercial club
were W. 0. Wright Frank Carpenter, Frank
Sanborn, David Cola. Kd Georse. Byron
Hastings, .""yyslteV ; Jardlne, John I. Brady
and O. W. Hoebler. Chief Salter of the
fire department accompanied the Omaha
committee to explain" conditions as -they
dually Alet In Omaha end to give expert
testimony on the question of a double shift
system. N : ' ''''

It understood he did not go to Lincoln with
any Idea of either opposing or supporting
the bill, but merely on requeat of the Com
mercial"" club and rtth permission of the
Board of Flre and Police Commissioners.
States His Position.
"I really did not want to go, but felt' It
my duty when the Commercial club made
the requeat. and If any of my statements
had the effect of placing the double shift
bill In an unfavorable light I could not
help that, for I sgid only what could be
verified by Investigation and answered such
questions as' were asked me," Chief Baiter
explained.' An Impression got out that the
chief went to Lincoln with the avowed
r purpose oi opposing lot measure.
Part of the facta and figures presented by
Chief Salter Wednesday before the commit
tee on labor, of which Representative Ed
Leedcr la ohalrman, ws:
Bhould the double shift system be adopted
It would entail an additional coat of nearly
$100,000 to maintain the department on a
safe footing, allowing for a reduction of
one man from each hoi company and
figuring tho salaries on a basis of the high
est that might be paid according to present
conditions. At present th department has
117 men besides the chief, two assistants
and a sccretary'the snlarles amounting to
J11B.100. With the double shift system In
operation and allowing but five men to
each hose company. In place of six aa at
present, and eight men for ah engine com
pany, the salaries would figure tlM.OCO, or
a difference of seventy-seven men and
$78,WiO Ip expense.
. Constat? Down to Brass Tacks.
. Chief Salter explained that by reducing
the number of. men on tha hose wagons
and engines the salaries would be reduced,
but to cut tha department, under the double
shift, from tha, figures presented by him,
would make the department inefficient and
rouse excessive Insurance rates. At present,
he said, the men receive twenty-four hours
In "offs" each Id, at days and ten days a
year vacation with pay, making about
seventy-two days a year off duty. The
chief explained how leas than five men to
a hose ' company would not be practical
even under the double shift system. He
said: -

Major Furay had a kindly feeling for the
lata Colonel' Frank: E ' Moo res. The two
were . the closest of friends. Mr. Furay i
and Charles H. Gulou were Mr. Moores'
original bondsmen, Mr. Furay- remaining
such during Mr. Moores' term of eight
years as clerk of the district court, and
when the late mayor waa elected In 1897
Major Furay called on his friend and
asked to be one of the bondsmen. Mr. Fu
ray was bondsman with George T. Mills,
park commissioner, during Mr. Moores'
mayoralty career.
When Mr. Moores was In trouble over
an alleged mlaapropriatlon of fees as clerk
of the district court Major Furay wrote to
him: "Never mind, old comrade; I'll stay
with you."
Colonel Moores wrote back, saying he
never would allow a bondsman, to pay a

Toathfnl Executive of Milwaukee
Will Be Star at McKlnley
Clnb Banquet.
Speaking of the McKlnley club banquet
arrangements, John J. Ryder of the com
mittee having the banquet In charge says:
"We considered ourselves fortunate In
being able to secure Mayor Sherburne M.
Becker of Milwaukee for this annual event.
He Is In constant demand as a speaker at
political and commercial banquets and will
oome to Omaha from Louisville, Ky.,
where he addresses the Board of Trade a
day or two previous to our date. While
not as radical a republican as La Follette,
Mayor Becker' Is every whit as forceful.
His fight for tha mayoralty against -democrats,
socialists and 'conservative' repub
licans was one of the most notable po
litical battles ever fought In Wisconsin.
Becker always has something to say that
makes people talk.
"In cldltlon to the Wisconsin leader
we havo the promise of I'nlted Btates Sen
ator Norrls Brown that he will make all
possible effort te gut back from Washing
ton In 'time for the'toanerurt,' and the tone
of hi letter 'leaves no doubt of Ms in-'
tentloA to be with us. ' He wants to' meet
and become acquainted with the ' Omaha
leaders tn business and politics, and has
let his friends so understand. The Mc
Klnley club, because of Its position as a
boosting club purely, provides a safe meet
ing ground for men of all elemonts tn the
party, and Senator Brown has always been
a very popular man with the membership.
He knows, too, that his friendliness Is
heartily reciprocated.
"Governor Sheldon has also given the
committee an acceptance of Its Invitation,
conditional on his official duties permitting
the trip. As matters demanding his Im
mediate attention will be pretty well set
tled by tho end of the month, we are conti
nently counting on his attendance.
"Tickets will be on sale with the mem
bers of the club the coming week. Those
wishing to attend must make their reser
vations early, because we expect to test
the capacity of tho Millard to accommo
date the crowd on the evening of Janu
ary IS."

rhursday morning. Mr. Mohler waa one

Four Sample Steel Cars.
The Union Pacific Is building at its
Omahtw shops four sample steel cars, two
for freight, one for passenger service and
one mall car. Steel car construction Is
attracting the attention of railroad man
agers all over the country because' of their
great superiority over the old wooden type.
The difficulty has been that steel cars
were built along the same lines as the old
wooden cars, and this has made them too
heavy, although they were considerably
stronger. The problem Is now to develop
a, car wkloh will get the additional strength
from the use of steel without piling on too
much additional weight.
. Deniarrsge Law Btar Help.
The railroads claim the new demurrage
law Is a great help to them In getting coal
to tha centers where It Is needed. Under
this new arrangement the dci.lers are re
quired to unload the cars within a certain
time or pay a heavy demurrage, while
under the old ruling cars were held for
weeks before they were unloaded. Take
the Instance of the Burllngtonaaloni, which
Is the heavy coal carrying line Into Omaha
because it brings coal here from all dlrec
tlons. Before the demurrage clause was
enforced It was no uncommon occurrence
for that roud to have 500 loaded cars on
the tracks In Omaha at one time. Thurs
day that roud had 200 loaded cars and all
these probably would be unloaded before
they began to draw demurrage. Omaha Is
consuming more and more coal every year
as the homes Increase In number as well
a the manufacturing Institutions.

Omaha will remember Helena Modjeska
an standing wide-eyed and gasping, staring
at her hand, the anguish of a soul torn by
remorse written on her face, while her
whole attitude and aspect depicted the ter
ror and misery and sorrow of a kindly na
ture overborne by sin. )
It Is Just a little singular that Mmo.
Modjeska should have chosen to make
her farewell appearance In the sleep-walking
scene from "Macbeth," but she did,
and she depicts with terrible realism the
blttesness of that spectacle, prophetic as' it
was of her impending doom, when all the
fabric of her wrong-doing, born of ambi
tion snd foxtered in lust for power, should
come crashing down upon her and bury
her bonnalh Its ruin. It msttera not here
to debate the question as to which was
first the sinner, husband or wife, or to
argue as to which was the greater. Laily
Macbeth In Helena Modjeeka's hands be
comes the equal partner of her lord and
sharer In his Inmost thoughts. Ehe fur
nishes htm with that finer quality of
courage which he larks, but saps her own
strength in giving the inspiration for his
bloody deeds. All this Is made cleur by
the star whose light will soon be lost In
voluntary eclipse. It Is a great character,
and lias been daemed worthy the Lt ef
forts of ths greatest of tragediennes. In
this attitude Mme. Modjeska has ap
proached It. and with careful, well consid
ered steps she develops It from the first
scsne, In which a newly hatched hope
fledges Itself into bloody resolve, to that
ending wherein remorse and horror for
the crime blots out all else. The climax
is reached by such degrees as lessen the
shock, but do not disturb the impressive-
ness of the cumulative effect.
Herman Klne Macbeth.
Supporting Mme. Modjeska is a company
of uncommon excellence. Mr. Herman gives
such a presentation of Macbeth as might
In the main be called a star performance
Itself. He shows a rare and discriminating
Intelligence in his reading of the lines,
majestic in their poetry and Impressive in
their tenor, set down for the part, and il
luminates their meaning perfectly. Once or
twice during the evening he seemsd to re
cede from the high plane on which he
pitched his conception of the part, but only
for an Instant, and these brief relaxations
were more than compensated for by the
fire and vigor with which he renewed his
effort to make the real Macbeth live. Al
together Mr. Herman quite dominated the
situation, sharing with the star the credit
(or the success of the evening.

The piece has been staged with much
elaboration. In the witches cavern a realis
