Robert Kirk Prepares for. Death, bat
Chill Causes Hint to
Tired of life, and with nothing to be
thankful for on Thanksgiving day. Rob
ert Kirk, an sued man, made up his mind
Thursday to drown his troubles beneath
the waters of the Missouri, and he wended
his way to the banks of that troubled
stream south of the Douglas street bridge,
where he tied a rock around his neck with
a plere of wire and then started to walk
along the bank till he should find a de
sirable spot to shuffle off. But as
he was walking he stepped rn a stone
that slipped from under him and fell
Into the river sooner than he had ex
pected. Finding the water much colder
and wetter than he had anticipated and
not over waist deep, he gathered up the
stone In his arms and yelled loudly for
help. Two men who were rlng re
sponded to his calls and dragsed him out.
The police station was notified and the
patrol waron went and took h'.m to the
station. He was wrapped In a blanket
and thawed out and then given dry clothes
to put on. He admltti i that l e Intended
to commit suicide, but sa'.d he was not
ready when the stone slipped and let him

Notwithstanding the usual sense of com
placency, as It were, which marks the
condition of thr average person as Thanks
giving day grows to a close with memories
of blessings and other things disposed of
or digested, there was a genernl activity
which could not be accounted for in musi
cal circles had it not been for the fact
that Mrs. W. W. Turner had announced
one of her delightful concerts for Thanks
giving night. Mrs. Turner has been mak
ing great Impressions In her role of man
ager, and she Is adding to her laurels
with each concert. Another, and a very
potent reason for th- er1rr.itlon of the
people from their n,r .i,t,.., 0n Thanks
giving night wns that Mr. George Hamlin
of America (also of Chicago) was the at
trsctlon nf this, the third of Mrs. Tur
ner's concerts for this season.
Mr. Oeorso Hamlin needs no Introduc
tion to an Omaha audience. He has been
heard here before many times and o"t, and
he will be heard here many times more,
If the demonstrations of enthusiasm which
he was accorded last night offer any sug
gestion of the demand for his services.
Tenors are rare. In fact they are
usually very rare, and In many cases quite
Undertone. Put In George Hanrlin we have
a tenor who Is a fine well rounded, In
tellectual musician with a fine tenor voice
which has been developed and cultivated
by good schooling. Ho la more than a
t ;nor. He Is a musician and an artist.
When R'chard Strnues (who has written
many things, other than the "niue Dan
ube," which he did not write), was l
Klnnlng to be known in the musical world,
George Hamlin undertook the study and
presentation in America of the songs of
the great modern wlcard of composition;
and only thone who have attempted the
careful analytical study of Richard Strauss
can appreciate what it means when In
formed that Mr. Hamlin h is no less than
forty of these songs In his repertoire. If
Mr. Hamlin had been here to give us a
series of recitals Instead of but one, we
miK'.'.t have expected more Strauss than he
gave last nieht, but as he himself says:
"If I should give a group of Strauss, I
shi ' have to omit several other won
derful things which are also worthy of
Immediate notice, and I try to make my
or- program Just as Inclusive as pos
sible." That Mr. Hamlin's Judgment waa emi
nently proper was evidenced by the nu
merous good things which he had pre
pared and which wure a delightful novelty
to the musical people.
The graceful H ydn number followed by
the old English "Phyllis" has such charm
ing graces led up, by contrast, to the won
derfully dramatic song by Handel, "The
Trumpet's Loud Clangour." which was
given with an Impetuosity of temperament
cf which one would scarcely have thought
Hamlin capable; the song Itself, generally
not well known, waa a revelation In that
It showed that all the dramatic and strik
ing effects In song writing were not born
yesterday. Handel the Great had a few
things which musicians are beginning to
look for and find. Another song in which
the singer's firo and force and power were
a surprise was the "Provencallsches Lied"
this was superbly done and made one
dream of seeing the tenor In grand opera.
In speaking thus of George Hamlin s
power being a surprise, Jet It not be In
ferred that he lacked It be'ore. but he has
brought out In the last few years powers
which those who knew him felt that he
was only holding In reserve.
The "Botschafi" of Brahms was fang
with unction and Its difficulties were ad
mirably handled. "I'm Kahne" waa re
demanJed, and It waa sung well. The
Strauss sor.g and the numbers dedicated to
Mr. Hamlin were, of course, exceedingly to Hie audience.
In his tone production Mr Hamlin bdvo
cates de Idedly tlif nasal resonance and
that dots not mean that he i-'ngs In his
ncke. Lut that l.o ues the nu;-i resauator
In a very effective manner. Ills German
tongs, however, would be better without
It. He has a splendid crescendo and ft
fine technique. His niezza voce and soft
effects often become so ctheral as to
border upon the effeminate; they lack
body and carrying power, but therein lies
tho greatest difficulty which presents It
self to the singer. Mr. Hamlin has the
equipment to make ft tremendous success
of the broad style of song recital
which ho Is now presenting through
the country and which stands well In the
light with those of other recltallsts of still
greater fame. He is a success and Is not
resting on his laurels.
The accompaniments were played In tha
most superb. Intelligent, co-operative man
ner by Mr. Martin Schneider, a pianist
of splendid qualities and noticeable
strength. K.
coyote hid in the weeds thore and was
finally discovered and killed. Its weight
was forty pounds. It Is thought that
the coyote had been In captivity at some
time, as there was a mark around its
nock like tho mark of a cord. The peo
ple In the vicinity of Forty-second and
Kmmet streets have been losing many
chickens of l.tte a:.,: It Is now attributed
to the coyote.
E. I'. Morrow Falls In Attempt to Kill
Spouse and Destroy Home
with Fire.
Because Mrs. E. E. Morrow. 2009 North
Thirteenth street, had no Thanksgiving din
ner prepared, she Is lying In the Omaha
General hospital suffering from two bullet
wounds, and the husband Is lying In the
city Jail and will have to face the charge
of shooting with Intent to kill. At 3 o'clock
Thursday afternoon E. E. Morrow went
home and asked his wife If she had a
Thanksgiving dinner ready. Bhe replied
that he had not, because he had not fur
nished the necessary provisions for such a
dirmer. This angered Morrow, and he
pulled out a revolver and beiran shooting
at h's wife. The first shot glased her ab
domen and the second struck tho front rail
of her l"ft shoulder, running downward
and coming out at the back. The third
shot mifsed her. There were no more
cartridges m the pistol and Morrow's wrath
nas not yet appeased. "He went into the
bedroom and set fire to the house. Neigh
bors who had been attracted by the sound
of tho shots saw smoke emerging from the
houso and turned in a fire alarm. When
the fire department arrived Morrow fought
the firemen when they attempted to enter
.the house. He pulled his gun on Captain
Jenk-, but a stream of wnter was plavel
on him that knocke.l i .m down, and he w::s
relieved of his gun ai.J held for the police,
and was later taken to the station In the
patrol wagon. The five was extinguished
beforo any considerable damngo was done
to the house, although the bedding and
furniture were quite badly damaged.
Mrs. Morrow was attended by Dr. J. C.
Plshop, who had her taken to the Omaha
General hospital. Her condition Is not re
garded as serious unless blood poisoning
should set In. Morrow wns not drunk when
he did the shooting. His wife says he has

Eleven cf them related to procuring Illegal

dismissed against him and he entered a
plea of guilty on the twelfth count which
related specifically to Illegal fencing of

with which ho was churged with fencing
illegally was relatively small and the fences
have long, since been removed and the lands

Beyond the Reach of Call by State
Treasurer for Remit
tance. "The action of State Treasurer Brian in
railing on county treasurers to remit state
fum'.s In their hands December 1, does not
affect this county in the least," said
County Treasurer Fink Friday. "Douglas
county remits Its state funds every month.
The smaller counties, I understand, remit
only two or three time a year and tha
letter of tha state treasurer Is for tha pur
pose of having these counties make their
distribution and remittance at once."
State Treasurer Brian was led to make
tha call for funds because of the lack of
ready money In the school funds. Ttia ap
portionment will bo made Monday and tha
treasurer haa but 1187,000 with which to pay
an apportionment of (266,000.
