It now develop! that several of the
' South Omaha school teachers absolutely
Trrudra to sign mo petition 01 trie ami
,; annexationists whlchvwss Insistently pre
sented to all the South Omaha pedagogues
.t when they drew their pay checka for the
kjf month of ' February. While It la charged
Vtoy none of the teachers that they were
commanded to sign the paper by which
I they pledged thomuelvea to go to Lincoln
i to lobby against annexation, atlH it waa
. made plain that to refuse to sign would
, mark such a one- for special displeasure,
which means much to a person employed
in the school. There Is no doubt that the
young women felt it was policy to sign the
, paper, net because they feared any radical
' action from the board, but that they might
. keep the good will of a large class of ontl
annexationlsts. One young woman who re
. fused to sign was called up by telephone
, by her friends all that afternoon and they
usually asked how she dared to refuse to
sign. Bhe said that If her position de
' pended In any way on her signing that
paper she was willing to give it up at
once. Thia action of the city officials, for
It was they who presented the petition,
has been the cause of several men desert
, ing that side and allying themselves for
.'Greater Omaha. If It were possible to
name these young women or the frlenda
' who on their account Incensed, without
' still further bringing displeasure upon
. them from the antl-annrxatlonlsto, their
names would be quoted. They can be pro
" duced at the right time.

Dr. William C. Bents, one of the repub-'

tion, desires to make the following state
ment of his position and attitude, that It
may be clearly understood by the 8outh
I wish it to be thoroughly understood
that I am absolutely unpledged, untram
nieled and i nbound to any set of political
promoters, or to any who plan how best
to advance their own personal Interest
rather than the public good they may be
stow. I am a candidate for clean city gov
ernment. I promise and pledge myself to
that which will make for the best Interest
of the school system, at the same time en
deavoring to conserve the bent Interests of
the taxpayers and patrons of the schools.
I seek to avoid all personal antagonisms
and enmity, giving to all concerned fair
nd equal consideration, extending special
favor to none. Standing on this declara
tion, I solicit the support of the voters of
the city, and on this basis will endeavor to
carry out the trust they repose In me to
the best of my ability.

order of the city building Inspector, Ed
Trapp, for alleged violation of the city
ordinance In refusing to make the proper
repairs to his building at 2B04 N street. Tho

the buildings on the corner. Rypins de
clared that he would not repair the build

Inspector explained that he had told Ryp1

about $23, but that he had no Intention of
holding up anybody.

RIVALS RESORT TO" PAINT
Omaha and Sonth Omaha Hlrh School
Basket Bailers Smear .
Saturday evening's game of basket ball
between teams of the Omaha and South
Omaha High schools in the gymnasium of
the latter Institution is said to have been
responsible for class rivalry, which became
manifest in color schemes wrought with
bright paint on the front of both high
. The Omaha school authorities were noti
fied Sunday that the high school building
had received a liberal decoration on the
front steps and doors. Superintendent
Davidson viewed the scene and believed he
could read between the lines and discern
suggestions of South Omaha. He drove to
the South Omaha High school and found

What Is probably the best bill of the
season so far Is being shown at the Or
pheum this week, headed by the Fadette
orchestra, which proved so popular last
season. Its members have the advantage
of having another year of association and
experience with each other, which makes
their work that much nearer perfection.
Aside from the novelty of its being made
up entirely of feminine performers. It has
the distinct merit iof being a musical or
ganisation In every sense of the term. Mme.
Nichols last season demonstrated her ca
pacity with the baton, and her leadership
stin dominates the performance. The mem
bership of the orchestra has not changed.
The numbers played yesterday were such
as exhibit to the nest advantage the capa
bility of the several performers, the most
popular number, probably, being the Von
Buppe "Poet and Peasant" overture. This
is a familiar enough composition, yet it
admits of each section of ' the orchestra
being heard by itself, the motif running
through the score in such way that the
strings, the wood winds and the brasses
are called Into action separately. A de
lightful feature of this number Is that of
the 'cellists, who evoke a smooth, rich
melody from their Instruments. The violins
nre effectively handled, too. The most
showy number was a Spanish Intermexso
by Esplnoza, full of little tonal tricks and
surprises, with much apparently aimless
dash and snap, characteristic of Its na
tionality. The other numbers were a
march, a coon song, a medley of patriotic
airs without ft note of "Dixie" and a de
scriptive piece, "A Day at the Circus,"
which Is very effective In Its way. Mme.
Nichols and her orcheRtra were given a
most enthusiastic greeting, and richly de
served It. People who love music as such
ought to hear the Fadettea.
After the Fadcttes come Dan Burke and
his merry maidens, who dance. Seven
count 'em seven young women sit down on
seven chairs, take off seven fluffy wrappers,
and then in seven well, you know If you're
married, and If you don't yon can see them
hanging up In the store windows remove
fourteen stockings from as many dainty
feet, and set seventy toes to twinkling In
front of the astonished gase of the multi
tude. This isn't all of the turn, not by
a good deal, for Mr. Burke dances with
rare grace, and the girls assist him. It's
a good act. Leonard and Ixiule do some
good head and hand balancing, executing
their tricks with graceful agility, and the
LaMaze brothers contribute a knockabout
acrobatic act that Is a little bit ahead of
anything else In the line. Jlmmle Lucas
does what ha calls "Imitations," but they
are originalities, and very good ones. He
was pumped dry yesterday, and had to
beg off. Fay and Loa Durbyelle won much
applause with their shadow pictures, and
LaVeola was much liked in her dancing
"A Texas Steer" at the Barwood.
"A Texas Steer," that riotous comedy
from the hand of Charles Hoyt, is tho
bill at the Burwood this week and. Judging
from the reception It received last night.
It wll be ccrdially welcomed by the pa
trons of the theater. It la a play that re
quires quick action and lots of It, but Us
presentation by the Woodward Stock com
pany is very satisfactory. Under the di
rection of Mr. Hartford the play runs
through every act with a smoothness that
is the first requisite of a performance of
The play Itself is familiar to the public.
The transplanting of a bunch of cow
punchers from the plains cf Texas to the
national capital not only furnishes comedy
situations galore, but by contrasting the
natural, whole-souled plainsmen from the
district where the congressman comes by
his election honestly secured, by paying
full value for every vote he receives, wlth
the wily lobbyists,' male and female, of
the capital, Hoyt has developed ' a subtle
vein of satire of the political game.
Miss Pettes displayed her talents In an
entirely different role from the one she
had the week before, and as Bossle
Brander, the girl from the short grass coun
try, she Is a delight. She enters into this
breeiy part naturally. Mr. Morrison ' Is
seen In the role of Hon. Maverick Brander,
the new congressman whose entrance into
Washington life makes up the theme of
Miss Marie Hudson Is well cast as the
wife of the new congressman. The sup
port Is up to the standard and among
those who contribute to the general result
are Mr. Echofleld, as Colonel Brasney Gall,
the lobbyist; John Da vies, as Major Tell,
who heads the Texas Investigating com
mittee: Mr. Hartford, as the minister to
Dahomey, and Mr. Todd, as Captain Fair
"A Rocky Road to Dahlia" at Km.
"A Rocky Road to Dublin," presented
yesterday at the Krug theater. Is some
thing of a pleasing entertainment, due to
the efforts of Barney Gllmore and com
panions; but Just why the piece Is called
a "new comedy drama" perhaps Daniel
Hart, the author, may be able to explain.
The production would be strengthened if
Mr. Hart would have omitted his dramatic
Interpolations. Mr.4 Gllmore is what the
program says he is, namely, an Irish actor
with a naturalness that is refreshing, but
the same cannot be said of Author Hart's
mixture of Irish scenes and customs and
modern dramatic speeches.
It is w;th no discourtesy to Mr. Gllmore
and his company to say that what pur
ports to be a plot In "A Rocky Road to
Dublin" is so fragmentary as to make that
part of the piece depressing. Most of the
characters In the play are Irish delinea
tions and are In capable hands. Mr. Gil
more has an ease and grace of manner
that Is born of native wit. John D. Griffin,
aa driver of the finest Jaunting cart in Ire
land, Is pleasing. Miss Shirley, In the role
of Bernadlne Ferguson, is charming.
At the close of the second act Irish
dances are presented in a manner that
harks back to Erin's Isle. Mr. Gllmore
sings several selections during the action.
"Her Fatal Error" ' at the BIJoa.
Miss Ruth Craven and her company
opened what Is booked for a four-night
stay at the Bijou, presenting "Her Fatal
Error." If the attendance Is a criterion,
her fatal error was made In coming to
Omaha. It is hardly fair to her, though,
for she Is a hardworking little woman,
with a melodrama of some merit. It U
not a thriller, but tells, a coherent story
In Its own way. The engagement last till
after Wednesday evening, with another
matinee on Wednesday,
Concert at Washington Hall.
Frau Oda Nielsen of the Royal theater
of Copenhagen, entertained a large audi
ence of Danish extraction at Washington
hall Bunday night. The program was
niade up almost entirely of Scandinavian
and Norwegian folk lore songs, which are
only capable of true appreciation by those
familiar with the history and traditions
of those countries. The numbers which
made the most decided hits with the audl
nce were "Little Pierrot's Ctiniplalnt to
the Moon" and "Little Veggo," au old
Police Officer Alonso L. Troby waa badly
Injured In the right arm by a bullet from
his own revolver shortly before 8 o'clock
Monday morning in the nous at 617 Popple
ton avenue. Troby had gone to the house
to aid in holding a man suffering from vio
lent convulsions and Jt wss while thus en
gaged that the gun was discharged.
The manner In which the officer'! revolver
happened to leave his pocket and be dis
charge Is by no means clear. Persons In
the house af the time stated the gun fell
out of his hip pocket while he was strug
gling with the sick man on the bed and
struck on the side of the bed, or the floor,
with sufficient force to set It off, the bullet
striking Troby. The latter, however, said
the revolver was lying beside him on the
be dafter he was shot, so It could never
have struck any hard substance, and he
was of the opinion the sick man took the
gun from his pocket and pulled the trigger.
A fact to support . the officer's theory is
that the' revolver Is not of a kind to be
fired by a slight Jar.
The bullet was of S8-callber and splintered
the officer's arm Just above the elbow. It
also barely missed Officer McCarthy, who
was with Troby. Troby was hurried to the
Omaha General hospital, where an opera
tion was performed.
The sick man was Eugene Ingman, a
printer, and a brother-in-law of Officer

Charles D. Woodworth filed an answer
In the district court Monday to the charge
of contempt of court preferred against him
because of his alleged refusal to respond
to a subpoena served on him in the case of
F. W. Fitch against Euclid Martin. He
says the deputy sheriff called at his office
with a supoena made out to "C. W. Wood

because It was not his name; that It wns
late and he went honie while the tffflcer
was telephoning for Instructions; that
some one came to his home that evening
and rang the bell long and persistently,
but that he did net rrfply, being provoked
at the person for making the noise. He
says he received information that Fitch
had closed his case, and, as he had made
arrangements to go to Excelsior Springs,
he went. His stenographer sent him .
newspaper clipping showing that Informa

That Post-Prandial Joint Debute.
OMAHA, March . To the Editor of The
Bee: That post-prandial Joint debate be
tween Mr. Bryan and Henry M. Whitney on
government ownership of railroads, as re
ported by The Bee, waa something much
more than interesting. Mr. Whitney la
an owner of one of these railroads, the
Boston Maine, and with the true Yankee
instinct his concern about trie matter was
to have Mr. Bryan give him the assurance
that he would pay him a fair price for his
road and that he would not attempt to
confiscate It Mr. Bryan, with a sense of
his power, kindly assured Mr. Whitney that
he had no intention of confiscating tne
Boston & Maine, or any other trunk line
pf railroad, and Mr. Whitney Immediately
remarked that he saw much good in gov
This Is an astonishing exhibition. Mr.
Bryan says he Is a democrat and believes
It. This, with his msrvelous Intellectual
and moral force as a leader or ptinno
opinion, which la without parallel In modern
times. Is what makes him dangerous, a
democrat only' In name; a federalist of
the Hamlltonlan brand multiplied many
times. In fact, he would place In the handa
of the federal government a power of con
trol over the states through the ownership
of the trunk lines of railroad against which
even Alexander Hamilton would have drawn
his sword. Such a calamity would mean,
and could not fall to mean, the instant
extinction of republican self-government In
the United States. Not less than S.OOO.ooo
votes held as a balance of power In the
various states would be under the direct
control of the president and 1,000,000 more
could be safely added that would be under
his Indirect control, througn Iron and steel
magnates and labor unions. Is there a
white man, or a mulatto, of average Intel
ligence In America who can have a shadow
of a doubt about itT The republic In every
thing except the empty forms, behind which
tyranny and oppression would Instantly
masquerade, would be dead the moment
such' a condition' should come upon us.
Federal satraps would swarm all round the
people In every state, in every municipality,
to dictate and dominate the local gov
ernments, as they recently swarmed Into
a federal court In this very city, to strike
down ' and overawe the real fortress of
personal rights .and liberty by open assault
upon an honest and upright federal Judge,
a loyal and able United States district at
torney and a United States marshal void
of all lnten or act of personal or official
Does ' not Mr. Bryan ' know how can a
man of .his masterful mind fail to know
that given the power, the principle and
measures he openly advocates, would de
stroy self-government In our country In
a dayT -Concede to him patrlotlo motives,
In the same moment must be denied to
him frightful Incapacity to foresee the
fatal consequences of his Own acts upon
the political and personal rights and lib
erties which Thomas Jefferson wrested
from the monarchical centralisation of
federal power, which George Washington
and Alexander Hamilton meant to fasten
upon this nation, by his great triumph In
And now as to Mr. Whitney. He, too.
Is a democrat a good democrat In1 theory
as his famous brother, William C, the
founder of the United States navy was. In
fact, in other tdays. It was he and Daniel
Manning who made the nomination of Mr.
Cleveland to the presidency In 1884, and
It was he and A. P. Gorman who elected
and seated him. The Whltneys are blooded
democrats, but the red corpuscle Is evi
dently giving way to the white In the vlg
oroua veins of Henry. In the Joint debate
neither he - nor Mr. Bryan saw anything
but the commercialism which Is destroy
ing free government In our country
through a plain plot openly avowed and
advocated by President Roosevelt and Sec
retary Root In a certain contingency
which, with the aid of Mr. Harrlman'a
genius and popular clamor, they are doing
their utmost to produce. Mr. Whitney
wanted nothing but fair pay for the Boston
Maine, and Mr. Bryan, with the cool
nonchalance , with which he could tell ten
years ago, as now, how to uplift fifty
centuries of civilisation among 400,000,000 of
the people of China at a single sitting with
"That mighty Instrument of little men." '
Not that Mr. Bryan Is "little" by any
means In point of great and brilliant
talents, but that as a lawgiver he la not
merely unwise, but dangerous.
But the astounding things In the Joint
debate seemed to be the audacity of the
thing.' The Idea of even thinking seriously
of Mr. Bryan, or any other man or any
other million of men, talking about "con
fiscating" billions of private property In
this country! Blood would run In red
rivulets cm a thousand battlefields before
such a crime could be seriously discussed
by any president . or congress for those
days, and the men who should have to
lead In a' cause that even contemplated
