Tha coming week the State Pharmacy
commission will meet for reorganisation
for the year,' aa a new commissioner Is
due before the end of the week. Thla will

Phillipa will retire aa secretary. He has
been the secretary for a number pf years

conscientious official. He haa served on the
republican state committee for a number

Woodward Will Get Pardon.
The governor has signed the Joint resolu
tion of the legislature with regard to a
pardon for C. H. Woodward of Decatur
county, which makes It certain he 'will
soon Ia3ue the order for his release. This
Is one of the strangest cases In Iowa, for
despite the fact that Woodward la serving
a life term In prison for murder In the
first degree, the legislature concluded that
he Is entirely innocent. One phase of the'
case related to life Insurance upon Ills wife,
who waa poisoned, and since the trial it
haa developed that Woodward knew that
the Insurance had lapsed. Aa this waa the
sol motive assigned the case la believed to
have resulted In a defeat of Justice.

Insane When He
- Killed Himself
Former Council Bluffs Man's Claim
of Plot to Ruin Him is
WASHINGTON, April 1. Questions hav
sulate of William E. Bainbridge. confi
dential sg-ent of the United Statca Treasury'
department In charge of Its Tarts customs
bureau, who committed suicide In this city
Saturday, waa opened this morning. ' A
drawer contained a box of cartridges, five
of which were missing, and a slip of paper
In Mr. Balnbridge's handwriting describing
himself as beset by a "plot." None of the
off leal papers found, however, disclose the
slightest evidence that the department waa
dissatisfied with Mr. Bainbridge's work.
Washington had sent neither criticism nor
reproach, and a letter received thla morning
from James Burton Reynolds, assistant
secretary of the treasury, waa of the most
friendly character. It Is known that Wash
ington fully approved of Mr. Bainbridge'a
action In a recent smuggling case.
The documents found confirmed the opin
ion previously entertained at the consulate
that Mr. Bainbridge had broken down from
overwork, that he was temporarily insane,
and that he took hia life while suffering
from the mania of persecution. On Friday
of last week he sent a telegram to Mr.
How land, his assistant, who was on a
vacation, urgently requesting him to return
to Paris to aid In the Investigation of the
trunk smuggling cases, regarding which
Mr. Bainbridge was greatly worried. The
cabled reports that the agent had been
reprimanded In connection with these cases,
however, are untrue.

Alumni of the
In Books Placed in Omaha Drug
Stores Long List of Names
Feople of all ages, classes and occupation
are being brought together under one head,
that of being Omaha High school gradu
ates, by the alumni registration books that
have been placed In several of the down
town drug storea for that purpose.
A Judge of the district court, several doe
tors, a number of business men and men
of varloua lines of work, with a large per
centage of women, many of them now
married, make up the lists, which hare
been growing by leaps and bounds since
the books were placed In the storea a few
days ago. Already over fifty names have
been Inscribed In them, although but two
or three days have elapsed since they first
made their appearance, so it Is safe to say
that' the registration will number In tha
hundreds, even the thousands, before tha
next annual meeting pf the Alumni asso
ciation Is held, the latter part of June,
Miss Louise Northrop, 'OR, president of
the Alumni association,1 originated tha Idea
and placed the books In the atores, with a
placard asking graduates of the Omaha
High school to sign their names, addresses
and class numerals, and to spread the idea
by getting other alumni to do so. Several
more books are to be placed in other stores
soon. In order to get aa large a registration
Judge Howard Kennedy Is one of the
more prominent alumni of the school who
has already placed his name in one of the
books. He graduated In 1SS3. Mrs. David
Gross of 24S2 Franklin street, holda the dis
tinction of belonging to the earliest claas
of which (a member has yet signed up.
She graduated In 1876. So far, five persons
whose names appear on the books, now live
in other cities than Omaha. Edward M.

tests on for the most popular woman wage
earner and the moat popular candidate for
city council, and the race la getting stren
uous. The woman who wins goes to the Seattle
exposition and tha politician well, he goea
to the city council.
While the Klka began their fair laat week,
the best is yet to come. Beginning at noon
today the wheels will moye full foroe. Much
Is to be made thla week of the Cinderella
danoe and those people who were crowded
out of the Coliseum last fall may satisfy
their desires to See thla fantastic show of
art by the same children who presented It
at the Ak-Sar-Ben den. But the children
have been more thoroughly drilled and
practiced and 'consequently are far more
skillful than . they were last fall. Prof.
Chambera haa them In charge.
The dance is given in tha evening on the
stage between the." Bohemian and Japanese
villages. And these placea themselves are
works of art as well aa engines of utility,
for there are hungry to be fed, while the
dance goes on.

Tou have to watch pretty close to see
where the stubbornness of Cinderella cornea
in at all, but you don't mind that; while
you are watching for the Cinderella stunt,
you are being entertained so delightfully
by a lot of clever people that you wouldn't
feel badly if the Cinderella proposition had
been left out altogether, and matters were
simply allowed to take their course. It all
bomes to-the same total In the end. Adams
and Hough have provided a better book
for thla piece than they did for either of
their others, and Joe Howard has written
better music; maybe It would be nearer
the mark to say that he recalled more
good airs he had heard elsewhere and suc
ceeded in fitting them more closely to the
words. Whatever course he adopted, he
haa furnished a lot of sprightly tunes, and
If so be they remind you of something you
have heard before, you have- the certain
satisfaction of knowing It was something
good. But the lines are bright and snappy,
the situations funny without being out of
reason, the songs good, and the ensemblo
all that could be asked. George Marlon
haa arranged some very effective groupings
for the stage pictures, and with his ex
cellent taste In color and posture makes
the combinations beautiful.
Homer B. Mason, a quiet comedian who
Is really funny, heads the cast, and has
the assistance of several others who help
to push along the Jollity at a rapid pace.
Messrs. Plumer, Fauli, Wilson and Raffael
are worthy coadjutors of the clever Mason,
and their efforts are all to the good. The
quartet whleh renders that'a the word,
"rendera" "If They'd Only Let Poor Ad
am's Rib Alone" Is about the funniest
stunt that waa ever put on the atage In
Omaha. :ut the evening Is so full of good
things that one hesitates at undertaking a
catalogue of them.
Miss Edmond ia a beautiful girt, with a
voice of great range, power and purity, and
enacts the role of an unsophisticated titled
personage with good effect. She sings a
solo at the very close of the performance
that wins for her much deserved applause.
Ethel Dovey, well-beloved In Omaha since
she made her flrat public appearance here
with her sister aa a "child wonder" some
ten years ago. Is the same dainty, vi
vacious little tease and romp she has been
from the beginning, and her part is cleverly
done. Miss Noelke sings and dances In a
LB. il' ILUTJmnaX fflgiim .JlUJmmMJm
way that Justifies her popularity, and the
others in the list of principals are well lo
cated. The chorus is numerous and con
tains all kinds and sizes, from the gTent
dler show girl to the diminutive broiler, of
all shapes and styles of beauty, and every
one a willing worker at least none was
noted In the act of cheating at anytime
last night, and between changing costumes
ind doing tho stunts set down for them on
the atage, they are kept pretty busy. All
In all, "A Stubborn Cinderella" Is tho best
musical comedy seen here in a long time,
and the enthusiasm ot tho big audience
that listened to it last night Is Justified.
VaodeTllle at the Orphenm.
The best bill in many weeks and one
of the best of the season la offered at
the Orpheum this week. From the open
ing number, three Italian singers, until
the musical farce, "The Naked Truth,"
which closes the Mil, there la not a weak
act. Miss Jeanette Adler and her picka
ninnies follow the three Italians, who
are worthy of the highest praise. Miss
Adler alngs a number of character songs
and her diminutive assiatants dance In
lively fashion. Fred Gray and Nellie
Graham are next In order. Gray In
dulges In a good deal of amusing clown
ing, while hia companion plays various
instruments, including "the largest sax
ophone in the world." Tho sketch,
"Thirty Dollars," by Kewell Collins, ia
bettor than the ordinary, and la In the
effective hands of Frank Nelson. Dorothy
Deshello and John C. King. Nelson, is
an able character comedian and Mlss
Deshelle a young woman whose acting
betrays both temperament and Intelli
gence. King also merits praise.
The Sisters TJeFaye follow the sketch
and score one of the decided hits of the
bill. They do a little graceful dancing
and play mandolin and banjos, tha lat
ter particularly well. Part of their suc
cess is doubtless due to the fact that
they are young and quite pretty. TVttt'a
