ICr. sua Kri. Edward H. Barrlman
pant their twsnt j-nLnth wedding an
niversary In Omah last evening, and
the Informal dinner at the riald
olnb, giTan by buslnest man of
Omaha, served for the celebration of
the event. The tablei were decorated
and each guest rlTen a red roee,
which wee found to be the favorite
flower of tba Karrlmana and the kind
carried by Mre. Harrtman at her
wedding. She expressed hereelf aa
much, pleased with the coincidence
whan aha left the city laat evening
and bid goodbye to thoae who ten
dered "an anniversary to Mr. Harrt
man, the olldren and myaelf."
"Co-operation" wu the word selected by
Edward H. Karrlman, railroad king and
railroad builder, president of the Union
Taclflc railroad and controller of other
line, aa the one word which most expressed
lila desire In the relationship of the people
of Nebraska and business men of Omaha
to the organization of which he Is the head,
In his brief address at an Informal dinner
given In his honor at the Field club Thurs
day evening' by the Commercial club of
Omaha. , v
"1 like ihls word co-operation, suggested
Just now by Dr. Miller," said Mr. Harrlman.
"You men and the people of Nebraska are
Just as much Interested as we are. Help
ua to continue, as we are now, the great
highway across .the continent, bringing the
traffic of the east to your city and for
warding It westward bringing the traffic
of the west through Omaha and distributing
It over the lines which go out from here
to the east."
When -Air. .Harrlman arose to speak at
the Field club dinner last evening, .where
the tables - were In the shape of an "H,",
where a beautiful floral piece of the Union
Pacific shield was In front of him and
where even the cakes had "H" on them,
the applause which he received threatened
to compete with the record made at the
republican and democratic conventions,
when Taft was cneered and democrats at
tempted to cause rain by their explosions.
Mr. Harrlman and his party arrived at
the Union depot from Ogden. and the west,
where Mr. Harrtma'n has been spending a

vacation, at 6:16 last evening. The train,
consisting of seven private cars, had been
brought from Ogden since 6:38 p. ni.
Wednesday evening, making the trip In
twenty-two hours and fifty-three minutes.
Even the chief of the road commented on
the perfect .road bed snd manmrement which
made the trip possible, snd Mr. Harrlman
appeared as fresh when ho stepped from
the train si though he had Just left his
bedchamber In the New York home after
going to bod on a game of golf with his
children which he says he does some
times. liarrlmnn in Good Health.
The neat, little, black coat, the naturnl
flHX linen vest, the almost hidden necktie
which Mr. Harrlman wore, gave him the
sppenrance of being "dressed" for the oc
casion though his clothing was only ordi
nary and on him lK-cause they had to be
for business reasons and not. for show.
Ills usually tawny face whs browner than
usual and he walked like an athlete
through the Union statl n with Euclid Mar
tin, chairmsn of the executive committee
of the Commercial club. The reception
committee which greeted Mr. Harrlman and
his party consisted of:
Will I,. Yetter. N
Dr. Oeorge I.. Miller, T
W. H. Burholi. O
T. A. Fry, O.
I.uther Drake, C.
W. M. liurgess. J.
C. W. Hull. J.
Mrs. K. L. Lomax, Mrs. T.
Mrs. Raymond H. Welch met
M. Orr and
man and her daughters.
Contrary to all expectation, Mr. Harrl
man stopped when he reached the north
entrance of the Union station and con
fronted the army of photographers wait
ing for a picture.
"Do whatever you war.t to do to me,"
was the permission he gave, ua half a
dozen shutters clicked.
The party was taken around the city for
an hour In automobiles furnished by
Thomas A. Fry, Luther Drake, C. W. Hull,
George II. Kelly, W. R. McKeen, J. A.
Sunderland, Oscar Allen and T. M. Orr.
Mr. Harrlman occupied a seat In the Fry
machine with Mr. Martin, Oeorge L. Mil
ler and W. II. Bucholx. A. L. Mohler, W.
L. Yetter and Ward Burgess followed lr.
the Drake machine.
Informal Gathering on Linii
Mr. Harrlman was a good fellow when
he arrived at the Field club for more than
three hours, If he ever was In hia life, and
appeared to enjoy every minute. He dis
cussed golf with the members of the party,
occupied the center place when crowded
Into It for photographs, said the Informal
reception on the lawn reminded him of
"lawn socials" which he attended In earlier
days, and that he did such frivolous things
now and then as ride horseback and play
lawn tennis with his children. In fact did
whatever they wanted him to do If It did
not take too much time to "get Into the
It was on the lawn that he met most of
the eighty business men who attended the
dinner. He stood bareheaded among the
group and appeared to be receiving as the
business men arrivtd in carriages and
automobiles. His handshake was free; his
grip had something In It which suggested
that he had Just returned from a vacation
and gave demonstrations of the physical
strerjgth he had galned
Before this sort of thing had proceeded
fifteen minutes, Edward H. Harrlman was
real chummy and declared by business
men to be companionable, versatile, good
natured, entertaining, ready for all oc-
casions and as well poised as the white
head of Shasta as It looks down on Oregon,
from which he had Just returned.
Dinner at Field Clnb.
Then followed the dinner In the long
dining room of the Field club. Mr. Har
rlman occupied the seat of honor, Euclid
Martin presided. To the left of the rail
road builder was Dr. George L. Miller and
Mr. Martin was on the right. Others near
him were: A. L. Mohler, Will L. Yetter,
J. A. Monroe. Q. W. Wattles, W. L. Park,
Thomas A. Fry and K. L. Lomax,
One story after another, applicable to tho
conversation, was related by Mr. Harrlman
as he ate the big dinner with evident relish,
from blue points to sprigs of parsley.
Typical of his remarks was that when
Henry W. Yates, president of the Nebraska,
National bank, was admiring the floral
shield In the colors of the "Overland
Route," and remarked:
"This is about as near as I have ever
been to the Overland Route."
"How Is thatf Inquired Mr. Harrlman.
Mr. Yates replied: "I have always been
with the Burlington on the other side, as
"Oh, that's all right," replied Mr. Harrl
man. "I came nearly having the Burling
ton once." "' .
Dr. Miller's Tribute.
In compliance with Mr. Harriman'a re
quest no speeches were planned, but Chair
man Martin asked Dr. Miller to say a few
words after dinner to give voice to the
"spirit of the occasion."
"We have with us tonight a man with
out a peer in the development of America,"
said Dr. Miller. "I speak with deliberation
and advisedly when I say that the his
tory of this country from the wigwam to
the present, contains no record of any
man doing more for the Transniississippi
country than Edward H. Harrlman. He has
done more than all the rest of them. I say
this because I believe I am justified In K
by the consensus of opinion of tho people
In a community where I have lived for
Dr. Miller referred V Mr. Harrlmans
work for the relief of the people of San
Francisco, saying that he had blended
heroism with achievement.
"I believe I have a right to pledge you
the support of this community in your
great work," said the doctor, "and I pledge
you the same support for this man Mohler,
and he cannot axk ua too often to stand
by him, for we will do It."
Mr. Harrlman could not res'st the Ions
applause and loud calls for a few words
from him. when Dr. Miller had paid the
short tjibute to the railroad king. With iiU
hands under the shcrt black coat, and with
a face which showed more plainly than his
words told of his gratification and pleasure,
Mr. Harrlman said:
Union l'arlflc on Soand Basis.
"I can only say that I am gratified by
this, and to meet you us the representative
of that great organization which has done
so much for this community.
I am gratified because It shows the re

we not secured them tha Union Pacific
railroad would have remained Just what
It was years ago.
'We have spent over $300,000,000 Improving
the Union Pacific and Southern Pacific
railway systems since we took hold of
them and we have much more to spend.
But the route of the old Union Pacific rail
road was so well selected that in all these
years and with all this expenditure of
money we have only been able to shorten
It thirty miles.
'The Lane cut-off is an example of this.
It has been an expensive cut-off and cost
about 2,000,000 more than the original esti
mates, but I find that we are liable to
lose money on the traffic we haul over it
because we have shortened the distance,
some and can now get your goods and the
passengers out of Omaha better and more
conveniently than ever before.
'In all serlouhneps we ought to be allowed
for the service and facilities provided re
gardless of the distance, but we find our
selves In the position of cutting off our
revenue on thirty miles of road because
e have shortened the distance and bettered
the service by that much."
Turning to Charles Lane, assistant gen
eral freight agent of the Union Pacific,
Mr. Harrlman asked:
"Is not that true, Mr. Lane?"
"e'adly so," replied the traffic man.
Then Mr. Harrlman Introduced "Charlie"
Lane to the business men, an Introduction
which Mr. Harrlman himself evidently
knew was unnecessary, for he said:
"I never mot this man Lane until this
evening. I havt often wondered how that
ut-off got Its name. Hut It has been a
mighty expensive cut-off." Someone sug
gested that "Charlie" would make it up.
Mohler Bess Oft.
As Mr. Harrlman's party had to leave a
few minutes after 9 o'clock, Chairman Mar
tin announced that while there were a
score of those present from whom the party
would like to hear. It would be Impossible,
and when A. L. Mohler was called he ex
cused himself by saying that he was sav

AFFAIRS AT SOUTH OMAHA
Bohemian Catholics Planning for a
Fair to Be Held Next Month.
EAISINO MONEY FOE SCHOOL
New Packers National Bank Bnlldln,
Now Completed, Object of Much
Admiration Thlevea Return ,
A Bohemian" Catholic fair,' enlarged
enough in scope to Include all Bouth Omaha
business men. Is planned to begin October
11 and to continue until October 16. This
fair will be held at Franek's hall and park
at Twentieth and Q streets.
The object Is to raise money for the
maintenance of the Bohemian Catholic
school at Twenty-second and S streets. An
Invitation has been extended to all the
South Omaha business men to assist the
project. This appeal is said to be meeting
with great success.
Many of the business men have agreed
to open booths at the fair. These will be
used for the sale of all kinds of merchan
dise and to add to the charms of the mid
way features. The Bohemians have erected
a line school building. Already there Is an
enrollment of more than 200 children and
the number will be swelled to nearly 300 be
fore the close of the year.
To get the school securely on Its feet at
the start they are bending, every effort to
plans which will yield a monetary return.
New Bank Building; Attractive.
Many people stop every hour in the day
as they come from the Bouth Omaha yards
to look at the completed Packers' National
bank building at Twenty-fourth and O
streets. The management has announced
that the $60,000 building will be occupied
September 14. The building will be thrown
open Saturday afternoon and the public is
Invited to make a full examination of Its
conveniences. The location at Twenty
fourth and O Is manifestly better than at
Twenty-sixth and N streets. It is at the
point where all the stockmen and com
mission men take the cars for Omaha. A
move is said to be on foot to have the
course of the car line changed, so that
the loop cars will turn north at Twenty
fifth and Q and again turn east at Twenty-
fifth and O streets. This would be an ad
ditional convenience for the new bank, pro
vided that O street be made the transfer
The Packers' National bank building,
though only one-story high, has been de
signed solely for banking purposes. Every
room and apartment Is designed espe
cially for convenience and security In
this kind of business. The main public
lobby is finished in a dark green antique
marble, highly polished. The lighting is
from windows on three sides and from a
large skylight above. The walls and cell
ing are frescoed In bronze of the fighter
shade, even bordering on yellow or goia.
The celling contains an elaborate system
of lighting, the lamps being set In the In
verted cups of bell-flowers. The vault and
safe are both as secure as possible to pro
cure. The private offices and the lobby
are all done in a mahogany finish In the
matter of furniture. In the basement a
lunch room and other accommodations for
the employes, Including bath rooms and
storerooms, are located.
Stolen Property Returned.
Two cases of tender ' conscience were
brought to the notice of the police yester
day. The first was the theft of a bicycle
belonging to C. A. Voung. the secretary
of the 1 w;l Young Men's Christian aaso
tiation. ile loaned it to a boy to ride over
to the Burlington station at Thirty-seventh
and L. When the boy came out after de
livering a message at the depot Wednesday
afternoon he found that tha bicycle had
been stolen. The police were notified. They
suspected a boy employed part of the time
at the station and threatened to place the
boy undT arrest. About an hour after this
the wheel was discovered where it had been
returned and carefully placed at the rear
of the depot. No one saw the boy, who is
suppiaed to have used the wheel, return U.
The Hucond was a case of the theft of a
harness of considerable value from a man
