Uoethe, Faust and the Eighteenth
- OMAHA, Sept. 11. To the Editor of The
Bee: Kev. IJtshop Quayle will pardon me
If I take Issue with him on his views of
(J oc the and Faust In his recent lecture
at the Methodist Episcopal church a few
days ago. It Is an awful charge to make,
as he did, that the eighteenth century
was "inhuman and Immoral and that
(Joe the was Its true son."
Let us take a glimpse at the galaxy of
names that helped to make up the eight
eenth century and at the events of that
epoch, and we will see thut the above
charge of the reverend bishop has no
foundation to stand upon and must fall.
Ooelhe was a product of the eighteenth
century. In literature he held a place
as the successor to Voltaire,, the vivacious
Intelligence of the eighteenth century, and
of RoUHseau, the brooding sensibility of'
the same age; one aiming at ait emancipa
tion of the cold and stripped understand
ing, the other aiming at an emancipation
ot affection, deficient In sanity and
thought. Uoethe embodied In his writings
:he two forces of the two men, although
le differed from both. in his lyrical
vritlngs be Is a Rousseau; In his "Faust"
1 Voltaire. The new motto of that time,
'I'rnatur gegen Cnnatur" the "Natural
Against the I'nnatural" has been pro
Maimed by the fiery genius of Rousseau
Ike a new gospel, and Faust reflects
n it In Its full force. The theorist, the
vornotit creeds, the book learning, the
deallst. Is given way to communion
vtth nature, to the fount of life. Mcphlsto
jheles, the base realist and cynic, Is to
vecompany Kaust and mar the high poe
:ry of human life, to act as a spirit of
legation and to degrade and destroy the
ofty aspirations of the young Faust, who
s to enjoy life in Its full splendor, with
'ull freedom of thought and action. It

In downing the evil spirit Faust Is saved.
Faust may err, Faust may fall, but if ho
does not lose his identity of the higher
creation he will be redeemed in the end.
This Is, in short, the great philosophy ot
the great Uoethe In his great legend, Faust.
Where is the Immorality in the creation,
Faust, or in the creator, Goethe, as the
Rev. Bishop sees fit to call It, or find it?
And how about such men as LesBing,
Herder, VVieland, Kant, etc., great poets,
philosophers, explorers und scientists of
Germany, who lived in the eighteenth cen
tury? Can any ono accuse them of Im
morality, or find fault with their conduct
as men, or to make ttie time in which they
lived Immoral? Or take the great writers
and the epoch-makers of France, like Vol
taire, Rousseau, and other no lesser lights.
Are they to be classed among those who
would make the world Immoral? Or Paine,
Franklin or Thomas Jefferson, who lived
In the eighteenth century and who, with
their pen and mouth, contributed so glor
iously to the civilization of the world and
mankind. Would they be classed among
It is true that there were events and
deeds in 'the eighteenth century which left
a stigma, a blot, a stain on its pages, and
which points with scorn and shame on the
eighteenth century; but who are they, and
where do they emanate? We had an inqui
sition in the eighteenth century which
tortured, killed and shed the biood ot thou
sands of Innocent people, for the sake of
religion and religion only. We had wars
which destroyed thousands of lives and
millions of property, but the cause of the
Inquisition and Die religious wars were
nothing else but religious disputes for the
sake of religion. If the eighteenth century
had produced nothing else but ope Thomas
Paine, the century would have been re
deemed for all Its misdeeds and the das
tardly mischiefs of the Inquisition. If noth
ing had been written In the eighteenth cen
tury but the Declaration of Independence
by Thomas Jefferson, that century would
have been Justified to stand out as the fore
most century of all the time. If nothing
had been accomplished in the eighteenth
century but the French and American revo
lutions, the world should pay its homage
to that century because the French und
American revolutions gave the spark that
lighted the torch of freedom, and emancipa
tion the world over. To call a century lnv
moral where such colossal deeds were per
petrated deeds that have laid a lasting
foundation for new eras, for new thoughts;
to call a century immoral for deeds that
have shaken off and destroyed the shackles
of slavery and tyranny and has given the
world freedom of thuught and action to
call such a century Immoral Is preposter
ous. If Uoethe, who lived and toiled In the
eighteenth century, had done nothing but
create his Faust, the world owes him an
everlasting gratitude, and Goethe deserves
to be put on a high pedestal among the
Immortals ot mankind. .

F. W. Burns, bartender In W. A. Atkins'
saloon, lliO Farnam street, who shot and
kl.lsd a stranger In the saloon at 10. 30
Friday night, Is held at the police station
rending his preliminary hearing. His state
ment that he shot the man because he
flashed a revolver In bis face Is generally
accredited by the police. The victim has
not yet been identified.
This was the third traaedy since Septem
ber 1, the other two being tlie death of Dr.
Fred T. Rustln and the murder by Van
Goodell of Mlts Edna Kennett.
A clue which might lead to the Identity ot
the man was presented to the police by the
soldier's cap which was worn by the
stranger when ho entered Atkins' saloon.
The cap Is the property of T. G. Rllcy, a
private of Company H, Sixteenth infantry,
stationed at Fort Crook, who was picked
up In a helplessly drunken condition by
Detectives MKchell and Sullivan shortly
after 6 o'clock Friday night after he had
fallen down a stairway at ths northwest
corner of Fifteenth and Capitol avenue.
When sent to the police station Riley was i
wearing a high-crowned soft black hat
which answers the description of tlie hat
worn by the man who attempted to hold ui
Levy's saloon and others. Riley cannot
recollect anything that oocurred during the
latter part of - Friday afternoon, but tho
dead man and the soldier were evidently
In each other's company. Riley was taken
to the coroner's office, but could not Iden
tify the mart who was killed by Burns.
Man Who Was at Levy's.
The body of the dead man was Identified
as that of the man who had entered A.
Levy's saloon at Eleventh and Capitol ave
nue shortly before the affair in Atkins' sa
loon. Levy, who 'made the Identification,
slated to tlie authorities that the dead man
had been In his saloon and had acted sus
piciously, even showing the handle of a re
volver sticking from a hip pocket. Levy
secured his revolver and held It In his
hand, whereupon the other had walked out
of his saloon without making any remark.
He evidently went Immediately to the At
From a description furnished the police
Friday by Jake Landmen, a saloonkeeper
at 1M South Twentieth street, who was
confronted by a would-be holdup artist In
his saloon Thursday evening about ll:3u
o'clock, It seems possible that the man shut
by Bartender Burns last night is the same
man who attempted to hold up Landroch.
So far the body lies unidentified at the
Davis undertaking parlors, where an In
quest will be held Monday afternoon. The
police are Inclined to believe that Burns
shot in self-defense. Although a bartender
in a saloon where the roughest class of
trade Is encountered, railroad laborers,
Burns does not drink Intoxicants. He
could add but little to his story told Imme
diately after the shooting, with the excep
tion of his ordering tlie stranger to put
away the gun that he flashed. The latter,
however, replied that he had pulled it to
use It, anjL-tlse It he would, whereupon
Burns secured his revolver from the work-
board under the bar and during the scuffle
that ensued Burn's revolver was dis
charged. Two Men Arrested.
When tho killing occurred the patrol
wagon was out on another call and arrived
at Atkins' saloon a few minutes after, the
bartender and B. F. Holbrook, the porter,
being the only persons In the place with the
dying man. The latter was as white as a
sheet and only gasped for breath, saying
Burns and Holbrook were arresled, the
former on the murder charge, by Patrolmen
Dillon and Bitter, and the latter as state's
witness, by Detectives Ferris and Dunn.
"What's the matter?" asked Patrol Con
ductor Dillon when he arrived on the
scene, before seeing the dying man on tho
In answer Burns pointed to his vlollm and
said: "He came In here and flashed a gun,
so I shot him as I thought he was going
to hold us up."
At the police station, where the man was
taken In the patrol wagon, Drs. Harris and
Flttgibbon examined the wound and said
that an Internal hemorrhage caused by the
cutting of the abdominal aorta would bring
death In a few minutes, and the man died
at 11 o'clock, about thirty minutes after he
Assistant Coroner Hulse took charge of
the body, removing it to the Davis under
taking jarlors on South Sixteenth street.
In an Interview Burns, the man who did
the shooting, said that there were no men
aside from himself and the supposed robber
in the saloon at the time the shot was
fired, but that a crowd soon gathered after
hearing the report of the gun.
O'Donnell Had Just Left.
"Ex-Officer Steve O'Donnell had Just left
the place before I shot the man," said
"The fellow, who did not appear to be
drunk, entered through the front door and
had reached for his hip pocket and drawn
bis gun when I grabbed the pocket .38 pistol
which I keep under the bar and fired one
bullet Into his stomach.
"He sank to the floor, gasping for breath,
and calling George' Dwyer from a nearby
saloon I attempted to revive the man I
had shot, applying Ice and bandages to his
wound. A crowd gathered and I sent for
the police, who arrived In what seemed to
be a wonderfully short ttme.
"While the patrol wagon was on Its way
we tried to find out the man's name and
where he lived, but he- said nothing and
seemed to be In a bad way.
"I shot the man, but I only did It because
I thuught he was going to hold me up or

Lawrence, l.'oS JIarney street," was dis
covered on a badly defaced book cover
taken from the body at the police station
before the coroner took, charge of it. How.

is listed In the city directory, and that lo

Corduroy trousers, a black sateen shirt,
a gray vest, black stockings and white
canvass shoes were worn by the dead man,
whose only belongings aside from his hat,
clothes and book cover, were a broad
brown leather belt, an unused 33-callber
revolver cartridge, a sack of tobacco, 11.15

Ilnar. Time for Police. .
Tha shooting, with one or two minor
cases, furnished considerable hustling at
the police station between 10 and 12 o'clock
last night. The hurry call from the aatoon
where the shooting occurred came In while
the patrol wagon was out on another case
In which an Austrian had been stabbed
several times in the right shoulder by a fel-
low countryman at Durke's saloon at 223
North Tenth street. Joe Kranwek did the
cutting and like Ootanh was the recipient
of 'the slashes. Both men room at the
hotel Roma, a lodging house at Eleventh
and Dodge streets, and were arrested on a
charge of drunkenness and fighting. Dr.
Harris attended to dotash's wounds, which
were not serious. ,
While one of the Austrlans was being ar
rested by Emergency Officer Hell across
the street from the police station', a crowd
of foreign laborers gathered and attempted
to Interfere, thereby giving the police offi
cers another chance to be active. It took
several of them to disperse the crowd and
get the man arrested to the station.
VAX GOODELL IS BOUND OVEH
Murderer of Mlas Kennett Probably
Will Have lnannltr Uefenae.
Van Goodell, who shot and killed Miss
Edna Kennett, a check clerk in tlie Loyal
hotel, on the evening of Si.ptemKr i nt'ar
Fifteenth and Chicago streets and then at
tempted suicide by shooting himself in the
head, was arraigned in police court Sat
urday morning on tlie charge of murd'-T
In the first degree and bound over to the
district court In the sum of to.OuO, which
was not furnlHhed, leaving the criminal
still in Jail. His attorney intimated insanity
as his basis of defense.
The charge was read to the accused by
Deputy County Attorney Magney. Goodell
stood in front of the desk of Judge Craw
ford, with downcast eyes, but evidently
listened Intently to every word of the com
plaint, as was Indicated by an occaslunul
tremor which passed over his body. At
such timeB 'he would brush his forehead,
where a slight bandage Indicated he shot
himself in the right side. His fingers re
vealed yellowish-brown vtains from the
constant smoking of cigarettes.
At the conclusion of tho reading of the
complaint Goodell did nut raise his eyes,
and W. W. Slabaugh, his attorney, pleaded
not guilty in behalf of the defendant und
waived preliminary examination.
Citing the Banner case . In South Omaha
Attorney Slabaugh requested that a bund
be named by the court, which was objected
to by the deputy county attorney, who
stated that it could be proven conclusively
that Goodell had previously threatened the
life of the Kennett girl and thut the mur
der was premeditated. In reply Mr. Sla
baugh admitted tlmt homicide hud been
committed, but ins ifar us the di-fendiint
hud utlempted suicide after the shooting
of the Kennelt girl the killing di 1 not con
stitute malicious and willful murder, but
on the other hand Indicated un unbuiuiued
Accepting the argument of Attorney Sla
baugh, Judge Crawford bound Uoixk-1' over
to the district court and fixed his bull at

light was greatly diffused. Another possi
ble explanation would be that the shafts
of light frequently sent up by the furnaces
at the smelter and gag works colored the
clouds at some distance. I am quite sure
that It was not electrical."
Another explanation which has been of
fered was that there was some electrical
disturbance In the air some distance east
of here. This theory is somewhat strength
ened by the fact that the telegraph wires
between Omaha and Chicago were many
of them working badly, which indicates
that something was wrong with the atmos
phere. The light was described by one man as
looking like the ray from a great search
light playing on the clouds and moving
across the southern sky toward the cast.
One man of vivid Imagination was sure
that it was an airship traveling over
Omaha too high to be seen, leaving a
trait of light as It went. A great man

disturbed and made Inquiries to find out

condition of the poll books. Another will
be the Third of the Second, in which ths
