AFFAIRS AT SOUTH OMAHA
Sewer Contractor Give Their Side of

While murll criticism In In the air In
almost every phase of the municipal life
of South Omaha, and while many expres
sions of resentment have been heard on all
side owing to recent charges from the
grand Jury, some of the departments at
tacked are beginning 'to offer explanations
to show why conditions exist as they are.
One of these explanations comes from the
city engineer's office regtu-dlng the ex-cm-dlnly
slow progress In the construction
of the Bouth Omaha sewer system. It hap
pened at ths time of the letting of these
contracts, the Union 9tock Tards, as an
Interested party, made great efforts, In
dependent the city, to interest the big
sewer contractors of the country, request
ing them to bid on the proposition under
the estimates ot the city engineer. The big
contractors tame ty South Omaha, looked
over tee ground and every one refused to
bid, on the' ground that the appropriation
was too small. It therefore fell to local
contractors to bid on the proposition. The

proposition looked easy, but experience has
shown that It was a most serious under
taking. The National Construction com
pany, attempted to drive A tunnel through
ths mil at Fifteenth and Monroe streets.
They have been working over a year and
1.0W feet or more yet "remains to be built.
Mistskes were made which are now ad
mitted, due to lack of deep tunnel experi
ence and the work of the company so far
has shown a steady loss. George Tarks
has often remarked that hs would give
l'.O0O In addition ii the contract pries to
any man who . would take the proposition
off his hands. Water, ssnd and block
clay nave twn a constant hindrance to
progress. It has required the purchase of
a steel shield lately and the use of a sys
tem of Jacks. With all this the progress
has not been more than three feet dally.
For many weeks not any progress was
made, accident after accident causing de
lay, several of the other sewers cannot be
constructed until they hsve -an outlet Into
the Mud Creek sewer. Such has been the
history and the outcome of the effort of
the company so far clearly demonstrate
that figures rhade from surface survey
tell next to nothing of the engineering
feats required under ground. The city en
gineer and W. 8. King likened the sewer
to a mule In difficulty when steady pro
gress was sought. The company insists
thst the contract will be carried out. One
of the biggest contractors at the time of the
letting of the contract agreed to do the
work at cost and asked the city to guaran
tee him a profit of 10 per cent on the
ity engineer's estimate; bat would sub
mit no bid. That Is he agreed to furnish
skilled men and furnish material at cost,
allowing the city to build Its own 'sewer,
as It were, under his supervision.
These difficulties and the handicaps
which some unforseen events have brought
nbout are given out the reasonable ex.
planation of the slow progress complained
Changes la- the Charter.
C. A. Melcher, from the standpoint of the
city treasurer, has expressed the opinion
that the South Omaha charter needs radi
cal reforms with respect to the special Im
provement assessment. Ho declared that
the city never could keep even and show a
consistent financial situation until It was
made Impossible for people to elude the
payment of levies for special' improve
ments. He made the assertion that , this
escape of obligations was practiced In
fully half of the assessments heretofore
levied In South Omaha. In many of these
cases the tax was escaped entirely.
As a remedy for a state cf affairs which
has kept the city In an uncertain state on
all matters of paving and street Improve
ment the treasurer' suggested that the
charter provisions defining the steps be
simplified so that grounds for suit to set
aside the levy be obviated. The laws In
this direction are cumbersome and involved.
A few precise regulations would make the
way clear. "It seems the law was mada
for lawyers," said the treasurer. "They
don't want people to understand legal
matters. And it follows that Invariably
errors have crept Into the city ordinances
which have made plenty 6f good money
for attorneys, but taxed the city at large
while the benefit has gone to A few. As
soon as a special levy Is made' attorneys
overhaul the whole history for defects
great enough to overthrow the levy. It
has often happened that part of the people
pay up promptly and the matter goes for
a number of years, when suddenly a lult
is begun and the tax Is knocked out. Then
we have to remit. In a case like this there
should be a law providing that all right
of protest or action to set Aside a special
assessment should be forfeited unless the
action began within one year after . the
levy was assessed. I understand this was
attempted at the last session of the legis
lature, but the clause . was defeated by
special Interests and the real estate men
of both cities owning property along paved
stieets. Without such A limitation many
people now neglect or refuse to pay the
assessment to see If strme time the levy
may be knocked out. It has not been a
policy to sell this properly At once for
special taxes. It usually falls to the
scavenger tax. which means a sacrifice to
the city. If there as a year limit which
msde further protest Impossible we could
sell the property at that time and realixe
on the tax sale enough to make the city
finances look comfortable. I suppose other
people don't see It like I do."
It is likely that some such suggestion as
offered by Mr. Melcher will be examined
Into and taken up by the charter revision
committee, which meets Wednesday, ;
'Athletic Clnh Orgaalsed.
The Shamrock Athletic association has
been organized in South Omaha for a few

Manager Gillan of , the Auditorium Is

Baltimore, Fred Beell and Farmer Burns

tournament. Say Hums and Beell start It
and the winner wrestle Roller, and the
winner of that match wrestle Americus.
Certainly such a plan would cerate Interest,

Dr. Roller was never thrown until Gotch
got him out at Seattle last spring. In fact,
up to that time he had never even lost a
fall. Gotch took two straight. Roller de
feated both Burns and Beell last year, and
Americus beat Beell. But Bums and Beell
both have some contention on their side in
these matters. They journeyed clear across
the continent each way to meet their men
in their home cltiea, Americus in Baltimoie,
Roller In Seattle. And beside that both
Burns and Beell were overworked each
time. In addition, Beell, when he went to
Baltimore to meet Americus, was laboring
under the extra handicap of grief over a
death in his family or serious sickness,
and waa admittedly not at his best.
Burns, the beat loser in the business, waa
willing to admit that he should not have
wrestled Rolier when he did. He traveled
from Omaha to Seattle and went onto the
mat the evening of the day he arrived. He
was so tired after he got on the mat that
he took the precaution publicly to ask men
not to bet on him. for fear that his fatigue
would prove more than he could overcome.
Roller threw him twice, but each time
Burns came within the merest fraction of
winning and the chances are that had he

but Joe Is out with the announcement
that he will be back on the mound next

said O'Neill. "Years ago when you were

said the friend, 'if that's all you Are wait

Fage to Herodias
llerodiaa, wife of the Tetrarch
Salome, daughter of Herodias
Let us waive discussion as to the pro
priety of producing a tragedy so terrible
as that Oscar Wilde evolves In his
"Salome." The dramatic force and
poetic beauty of the language, and the
sequence of the events are reason enough.
If reason must be furnished, for calling
the drama great. The elements of con
trast are there the sensuous monarch of
A sensuous court; the ascetic prophet,
elevated by his religious fremy Above
earthly considerations; the several sects
of the day, disputing as to the relative
merits of their creeds, Just as they are
today; the queen mother, sick of her In
cestuous marriage and writhing under
the prophet's denunciation; the daugh
ter, pure In body and undeflled In mind,
even amid the surroundings of A court
given over to voluptousness; And thla
daughter, suddenly stung Into the re
sentment of a woman scorned, because
the .has been denied that which she
asked, and her caprice leading her to
A terrible demand all this is wrought
Into the course of the single act that
comprises the play with a steadily ac
cumulating force until the tremendous
climax comes, and the limp and llleless
body of the once beautiful Salome lies
alone on the scene, a mute Answer to
the question born of evil passion. And
all told in language whose wondrous
imagery shows In every line the genius
of the erratic author. It Is a fascinating
drama, and Us acting possibilities are
carefully brought out by the players at
Miss Elliott makes Salome much different
from the general notion of the character.
In her hands the daughter ot Herodias la
not the degenerate wanton she has been
depicted; she Is a girl. Just on the brink
of womanhood. Imperious and willful, as
becomes a princess, fond of her own way,
but to some degree considerate of others.
And, when she cannot have her own way,
she sulks Just as a spoiled child, and
only when she sees a chance to accomplish
her end does she brighten up. And then
she Is once more the willful, disobedient
girl, bent only on her own purpose. That
this purpose has for its end the destruction
of a holy man. one In whom All About her
seem interested and whom the tetrarch is
bent on saving, even though fearing him.
matters nothing to her. She is too famil
iar with the death of inferiors to be dis
turbed by the thought that her whim
muns the end of a human life. "I will
kiss thy mouth, Jokannon!" This Is the
cry she sends after him Into the cistern,
and she refuses to be tempted from her
purpose by any array of Jewels or peacocks
or other gewgaws Herod may offer her,
seeking lo touch her childish fancy. She
has ceased to be A child, and her Insistent
demand. Qiva me the head of Jokannon'.'
Is the word of a woman, bent on hAvint
her own way at any cost. She exults ove.

willed, in spite of his puny, power? AnC
then her grief comes: Her triumph Is em
bittered by her thought of him as she saw
him first, and In the poignancy of the mo
ment weeps. It is not the kiss of Uu
wanton she presses on the dead Hps o:
the murdered Jokannon, but A kiss of lovt
salted with tears, and her cry, "I have
kissed thy lips, Jokannon," is a wail of
Miss Elliott has put much care Into her
preparation for the part, and enacts It with
the same conscientious effort that she
brings to nil her undertakings. Her read
ing of the lines she has is very effective;
she brings out the poetry of the thought
splendidly, and gives to ach. phrase the
delicate turn 'that illumines its meaning.
She cajoles or commands, wheedles, en
treats, pleads, begs, and demands with a
glrllshness that Is charming. And then
ahe Is terrible, when, after her sensuous
dance, frightened herself at the thought
of the request she Is about to make, she
asks for the head of Jokannon. It Is surely
a fine conception, finely wrought out and
played with greet force. The dance of
the seven veils, while but an incident
of the drama, is done with a grace that
is not the least of the charms of the rolo.
As the sensuous monarch, who has sunk
his manhood In pleasures of the flesh,
who flatters himself while pretending to
honor the Roman ambassadors, who looks
with libidinous eyes on the daughter of
his wife, she who was his brother's wife,
and whose lust leads him to swear an
oath he fain would have broken, Mr. In
graham Is achieving an accomplishment
quite equal to that of his work In "The
Devil." This son of work is expected of
him, and he does It welL Mr. Connor has
the rola of John the Baptist, and presents
a splendid picture of the man who came
as a voice from the wilderness. ,Mlsg
Downln does well as the queen mother,
and Mr. Grew makes much of his
opportunity as the young Syrian captain,
who takes his life when he sees his love
for Salome Is "hopeless. Mr. Todd, as a
soldier, Mr. Murdock, as the first Jew,
and Miss Meyer as the page, are well lo
cated, and the others In the cast add to the
general success of the performance.
The drama is well staged and costumed,
and presents a series of well designed pic
tures. All in all, it is probably the most
ambitious thing the Burwood folks have
yet essryed, and is certainly an artistic

Ben Welch who Is a comedian 14 hours
a day, or at least all his waking time, was
seen as such for fifteen minutes at the
Orpheum yesterday afternoon and evening.
Those who saw him when here two years
ago knew what U expect; others had a
dimmer Idea and still a third group had
heard fellow performers talk of him. Sj
unanimous is the praise which other men
and women on the circuit accord Welch
that one looked for a good deal and was
not disappointed. It is character acting of
the truest type although be is doing noth
ing but a monologue.
Comedy Is the motif of the whole Orphe

act frdm "General" Lavlne who opens the
program to the Trapnell family, five Eupo
pean acrobats touring America, who are

Violet Black and her company give the
headline act, playing a one-act comedy
entitled "In The Subway." Miss Black
plays the girt who had lost her carfare;
and Cameron Clemens the man who
came to rescue, but who gave her much
trouble Incidentally. Another well acted
part In the sketch, which is quita amus
ing, is that of the ticket chopper played
oy Eugene Keith. Herbert Morris and E.
A. Brown did much with small parts.

Omaha Doctors Score
Have Eastera Physicians Barked Oft
Many stories of remarkable cures have '
oetn reported throughout Nebraska, bear
ing eastern date lines, but now a wonder
ful statement comes direct from an Omaha
The case Is that of Mrs. Carrie Little of
lT.'I Capitol avenue, and has to do with
nickness, suffering and doctoring, with a
iinal verdict of "operation the only hope,"
out that was before the Austro-American
doctors arrived rn -Omaha. Now tire woman
declares she does not need an operation,
and the Auetro-American doctors are the
ause of It
To a reporter she told the story as only
a woman can after suffering Intense pain
for years and after being relieved In a few
days, thereby escaping a dreadful . oper
ation. Mrs. Little Is a bright. Intelligent woman
and Is not fanatical In her beliefs. As
she herself said: "I half no faith in the
treatment to begin with, but I have plenty
now, for I am a new woman."
When asked to tell the story of ber sick- .
mbs, Mrs. Little said:
"I have been a great sufferer for years
with that miserable, dragging sensation
that so many- of us women are familiar
with; took treatmit until the local physi
cians at last admitted that they could do
no more for me. I steadily grew worse,
new complications developing, until I was
more dead than alive, and frequently
wished myself dead so that I might bo
relieved of my suffering. My stomach and
bowels seemed to have become dead, so
far as performing their natural functions
were concerned. When I came to see the
Austro-American doctors I had Just been to
see some of the most prominent doctors
in the city, and they told me my only hope
was In an operation, and they did not seem
to be very confident of success In thst. It
waa my good fortune to pick up one of the
city newspapers, in which I read of the ,
Austro-American doctors and the wonder
ful cures they were making, and as I had
been told that my heart was In such a
bad condition that I would probably not
survive an operation, I came to aee theso
Austro-American doctors. In the hope that
I might be saved to my little daughter.
They told me they believed an operation
was unnecessary; that my case was similar
to many that had yielded to the "Austro
American treatment before, and while my
hopes were raised just A trifle, I believed
it was too good to be true.
"You can see what only A few weeks'
treatment haa done for me. My friends
caa scarcely believe their eyee when they
see what a change there Is in me. AH the
Id dragging pains are gone and I Am no
onger nervous. ,
"In addition to my other troubles I had
in excruciating pain In my arm. I have
mffered with this pain fof, the last seven
.ears, having tried osteopaths, magnetic
eaters and A number of the other doctors
ithout any results whatever. My arm
vould get so bad at times that I couldn't
ven pick up a pin. I couldn't afford to
e sick, for I Am a widow And hAve A
hi Id to care for. I w as discouraged, for I
didn't know how to do anything but hard
"When I went to see the Austro-American
doctors they were mighty good to me
when they heard my story, and made the
price low enough so I could afford to take
the treatment. My arm soon began to im
prove, and while it Is not entirely well. It
keeps right on Improving, and the pain baa
almost left It. I feel that I will soon be
as well as I ever was!
"I am enthuslaf tie over this treatment, and
I have all the reason In the world to be
so. I am not the only one who has found
a cure In the Austro-American treatment,
and I am not the only one who Is rejoicing
over my own recovery."
In every word spoken and In every action
Mrs. Little showed her happiness and ap
preciation over the success of the treat
ment in her case, and as the reporter
listened to her story of speedy recovery he
could understand why the newspapers of
the central west have been full of good
things about the Austro-American doctors.
The Austro-American dnetors are perma
