"It li highly Improbable that any amend
ment will be made to the Interatate Com
merce law. auch as hi been discussed
by the National Industrial Traffio league,
but the three principal amendment will
be taken up at the nrxt aesslon without
doubt," aald K. J. McVann, who ha re
turned from meeting of the traffio league
m Pittsburg and Washington, where he
went In the Interest of the amendments.
"The league' position I unchanged. It
favor the three proposed change, giving
the Interstate Commerce commission the
right to stay the putting Into effeo of ad
vance In railroad rate until a hearing
can be had and the shippers heard on the
proposed advance. Another amendment
propose to give the shippers the right to
route shipment, something the shipper
bave believed they had a right to do for
number of year. To make the railroad
responsible for erroneous quotation of
rate and require them to Insert the rate
, In the bill of lading, la the other amend
ment" Mr. MoVann said the uniform bill of
lading was perhaps the moat Important
subject discussed, even overshadowing the
amendment. For several year the ship
pers and bankers have been trying to get
a form of bill of lading which would be
mutually satisfactory, but effort o far
have been In vain, or practically without
Hankers Bill Eadoraea.
Now the National Industrial Traffio
league, representing thousands of ship
pers, ha endorsed the bill of lading drawn
by the American Danker' association and
which It desires to make a form prescribed
by statute. It Is known as an "order" bill
of lading and is one the bankers can
handle. The fact that the shipper are go
ing behind the bankers' bill with such
a force a the traffio league, gives promise
that It will be adopted, probably the bill
passed, which will make It the universal
form in this country.
.'At present the eastern and western roads
are using a form of bill of lading pre
scribed by the Interstate Commerce com
mission. The southern lines did not adopt
the bill of lading as recommended by the
commission, but took from It all the con
cessions of the carrier and left In the con
cessions made by shippers. Accordingly,
the bill recommended by the Interstats
Commerce commission Is not satisfactory.
The traffic league recommended that lta
Committees take It up first with the car
tier to see If an adjustment could not
be made, and If not, the shippers will go
to the Interstate Commerce commission,
which said when the bill was recommended
that It would listen to criticism and hold
a hearing on the bill of lading subject at

"bill of lading committee of the National
Industrial Traffio league for some Urns,

He says he resigned. Also It Is said the
league has ordered a new supply of tin

on Anti-Saloon league stationery last

and sent the letter broadcast over the
Naturally enough the Impression went
abroad that since th letter was written
on Anti-Saloon league stationery the letter
represented the league and Its attitude to
ward the governor. This was the Impres
sion the letter was Intended to create.
But the assertion was made freely, and
not denied, that Thomas' action was In
the Interest of the brewers, who were
fighting Sheldon and supporting Bh alien -berger.
But scarcely had the letter been shown
up In Th Bea than an officer of th Antl
Saloon league at Its state political head
quarter In Lincoln, called up The Bee by
long distance telephone and denounced the
action of Thomas, declaring It did not
represent the league, was not sanctioned
by the league and In fact was taken sur
reptitiously so far as the league was con
cerned. Th next day a prominent Omaha min
ister of Omaha said:
"Thomas will not b with the Anti

About Music, Musicians and Musical Events

Iwl Sort oner's magaslns there ap
III peared a splendid article on
LJ "The Use of English In Bing-
lng," by Francis Roger, the
well known baritone, an article
which should be read by every student
and all thinking teachers of singing. Mr.
Rogers gave a thoroughly interesting song
recital at the Lyric theater when' It was
first opened and he Is remembered by many
local musio devotee.
In this article Mr. Rogers offers for con
sideration a number of salient points. For
example, he says: "Fine settings of Eng
lish texts are deplorably hard to find, and
their scarcity Is often attributed to alleged
lacks In our language. We are told that It
Is unmel odious, 111 adapted to musical uses
and unsingable. Against this too generally
accepted explanation I . wish . to . protest
most emphatically. We have a poetlo liter
ature of marvelous richness. Only the Ger
mans can lay claim to a lytic wealth as
great as ours. The language we Inherit is
an extraordinarily rich one. A German au
thority credit It with a vocabulary three
times as large a that of its nearest com
petitor, German, and ten times as large
as that of French, the poorest, in number
of words, of all the great languages."
As to Its vocabulary, the trouble per
haps. Is, Mr. Rogers, that the English
speaking people, especially on this side of
the Atlantic, do not use as much of their
language In proportion, as do the Germans
or the French, especially the former. Ask
a German how to translate an English
Idiom; he replies to you by giving a Ger
man form of the sentence, and just as you
have mastered It, to a degree, be says:
"Or, you oould say It thl way." Tou
try again, and to your despair be Imme
diately finds another way which would be
perhaps "less stilted." A German asked an
American the other day, "How would
you say 'Please, stop that,' in another

Wo are terribly addicted to th "direct"
method; the present rule seems to be that
va should get to the point of expression
aloi g the lines of the least resistance, and
the result is a woeful vocabulary of slang
which ha gradually floated from the street
Into our business, and, in some oases, social
life. The latest to bombard the writer's
ear was "come across." This means "band
over," "pay up," or word to that effect.
(No, gentle reader, it wa not a bill col
lector who aald It It was a friend who
ws telling how he made someone "come
across." It was also used, methlnks, by
Mr, William H. Crane, the eminent comed
ian, in his play "Father and the Boys."
This new phrase doubtless Indicates the
retirement of "dig up" and "band over."
Another blow from Mr. Roger's trusty
weapon bring this: "Again, it is asserted
that th sound of English la unmelodious
because of Ha many consonants, but w
are no richer In consonant than th Ger
mans, and German Is accepted as a suitable
veMcl for song. Furthermore, a richness
and variety In consonant sound adds to
the vocal expressiveness of a language, a
th beat German singer have amply
Here, again Mr. Rogers Is eminently cor
rect, with respect not only to the allega
tion, but also to the defence. It is too
often asserted that the Italian language,
for example, Is so superior to th English
because of the consonants In the latter,
but for that same reason, as Mr. Roge-a
spy elsewhere, "It 1 the most limited In
Whoever hear nowaday of Italian songs

great German ZJederT We have some rare
gems, some exquisite examples of the old
Italian songs, but a recital .of even those
might prove monotonous. Tt songs of
Schumann, Schubert, and th persistently
neglected but nevertheless radtant Robert
Frans, are the pearls for which our artist
of the recital are diving. Brahms, Wolf,
Reger, Grieg, Strauss are great, but they
will not eclip the first mentioned. The
English language Is as singable as th
German, and all lovers of good singing
and good songs find abiding Joy In th
The pith of the matter, the vital osnter
of the whole question, is to be found In th
following, line which should be laid to
heart and whloh will be, by th discerning
few. Mr. Roger says:' "If our singer
would devote to the study of their own
language one-half of the time which they
give to th study of foreign tongues, their
hearers would all be justifiably proud of
the mere sound of English. American sing
ers feel that because they have always
spoken English, they need not study Its
theoretic side at ail, and may safely tak
for granted their own ability te us It suffi
ciently well. The French, who are Justly
famed for th perfection of their dlotlon In
singing, take nothing for granted, except
that their language is a beautiful one to
llstent tot and consequently, they submit
themselves to a long, rigorous and intelli
gent study of th whole ubjecfc"
The same Is also true of German In Just
as marked a degree, although Mr. Rogers
thinks. In a less degree. But if one has
ever really studied a German song with a
really fine teacher (and you don't have to
go outside Omaha to get one of the finest)
be will remember th Infinite pain and
endless patience which th true German
scholar takes, to Impress the exact pro
nunciation of each syllable upon the aerl
Good German scholars have often com
plained to the present writer about the care-
leas German pronunciation of some of th
beat known concert singers on our Amsri
can recital platform today, and the musical
editor of The Bea has heard singers with
national reputations sing German songs in
Omaha, with a pronunciation which b has
nsver beard used by Germans.
The actual fact la, Mr. Rogers' Insinua
tion that Americans feel no need for study
ing th English language in singing, is
based on positive faot
When one undertakes the study of a
song in foreign languag ho must get down
to th study of th const motion of each

Mr. W. H. Neidlinger was greeted by
large audience on th occasion of his lec
ture recital on Thursday evening, when
he gave a program of his own song a While
Mr. Neidlinger I not one of the great
American composers, he Is certainly

Neidlinger la also popular with th school

Mr. Neldllnger's suggestion to the "Ad

he advised th exploitation of Music, Art
and Education a well as business or com
merclal Interests. Orqaha has enough ma
terial here In the way of first-class musical
Instruction and education to attract at

commercial sympathy with artletla progress
would be helpful.

of his audience, as he has given promise
that he will present at his Omaha recital

I have been taking the Austro-Amertoan
treatment for two montha, and hay mad
such wonderful Improvement that I feei
that I should write you a to my oonditlon
and tell you how grateful I am to you.
I realise I am on the way for a complete
cure, and can aay, truthfully, that you have
done me more rood In two months than all
th other doctor I ever doctored with,
and that 1 a great many. We have spent
hundred of dollar for doctor bill and all
kinds of patent medicine, of which I got
only temporary relief. I have been afflicted
wHh stomach trouble linos October, 1&32.
I began to have cramps In my stomach. I
never went two weeks at a time but what
I had two or three spells a day, sometimes
they only lasted a few minutes, and other
times all day or all might. I had these
spells for five years, when I began to have
gall atones, from whloh I suffered untold
agony. I had a constant pain In my right
side. I would have such severe attacks
that I would have to call the doctor and
I would be so bad that I eould hardly
move In bed. The doctors told m they
oould curs my stomach, but could do noth
ing for my gall stones. Last April I had a
bad attack, from which I grw worse all
the time. In that time I had treated with
three doctor, and grew worse all the time.
I got so weak and nervous that I was in
a constant Jerk when I would lay down at
night I oould hardly sleep when I did
go to bed, and when I did. I had such
terrible dreams, as though I was falling.
In the daytime It seemed like something
was going to fall all the time. . I would
catch at my dishes, thinking they were
failing, and knocked them over and broke
a number of them. I suffered such awful
riln In my head and aeok, that sometimes
thought I would lose my mind. My mem
ory was very poor. I could not eat any
thing, and If I did, I suffered untold
sgony. My stomach was awfully sore, in
fact, I was sore all over. I could hardly
lay my head on a pillow. It seemed as
though a rock could not havs fait any
harder than the pillow would to my bead.
My abdomen waa bloated to twice km nat
ural slse, and seemed almost paralysed.
My heart bothered m terribly. My left
sAoulder waa so lame I oould hardly raise
It up. I waa not able to do anything when
I went to see the Auatro-Amerloan Dootora,
and now I cook and work for seven men,
and eat and sleep well. In fact, I feel like
new woman. I thank Ood (or sending
me to the Austro-American Twmtora.
know aom will aay they ar fakes, but let
some one who wishes to know about them,
write to me, and I will only be too glad to
tell wh&t they have don for roe. I would
ay to one and all, who ar In need of
medical treatment, don t put It off, but
go to Dr. Theodor Mllen and let him tel!
you your trouble, a he told me mine. In
a way that I have never been told before
Ha told roe that my trouble was a rundowi
condition of the kidney and nerves, e4
that this waa the real causa of all my
trouble. I would to Uod I knew what to)
say that It might benefit others. I will
gladly answer any one doubting this states
ment I am singing praises of the Austro
American Doctors wherever I go.
Hoping you will publish this letter for the)
benefit of others, and with kindest regards,
I remain, your grateful patient,
