' By a vote of. four to two ih rVuth Omaha
city council awarded th electric light eon
tract to theOmaha Electric Light and
Power company for a period of five years,
rejecting thebjd of the South Omaha Elec
tric Light and Power comrany, which of
fered to furnish" lights a; the rate -of $70
per lamp Tor a period if ten years.
Two democratic and two republican mem
ber of the council supported the report of
the committee of the whol to award the
contract to the former company In accord
ance with their bid. Tha affirmative
voters were Dworak, Hoffman, Larson and
Peterson. John Larsen and John' Hasburgh
favored the South Omaha company,, '
The arguments offered by the men who
favored the Omaha company were that they
favored a five-year contract and that In
the contract offered, judging from , the
established business of the present' com
pany, the royaltle-paW In would more
than counterbalance the bid of the new
Company, , ;
John Larsen opposed the Omaha company
nd maintained that the saving to th peo
ple on commercial lighting would make the
contract of the new company much better
without considering th public light con
tract. John Hisburrh favored a'readver-
tlsement of bids. '
A petition of U0 cltisens was received or
the subject asking that the city council
favor the South Omaha company,-, but It
had no effect In changing th vote of the
eouncll. A franohlae ordinance was Intro
duced also by each company. Incorporating
th teim of their bids, but these were re
ferred to the judiciary committee for later
action. It Is considered out of the power
of the people to protest or to ask that the
contracts be submitted to a vote of the
people. The time of submitting such a pro
test Is expired with the final award and
the matter up to the present tlm has been
considered simply a contract and not a
franchise. Th Omaha Electric Light and
Power company claim to hold franchta
running yet for fifteen years.
ii oeomon or me city council is sure
to arouse considerable feeling, but a each
party waa equally represented the feeling
win have no- pdlltlcal weight except upon
the individual councllmen.
Councilman John Hasburgh waa Incensed
to the point of profanity at th determina
tion of the council to Ignore hi ache me of
WhI L Want Car.
The Northwest Improvement club ' pre
sented a petition asking th city council
to use Its Influence with th Omaha &
Council Bluffs Street Railway company
to furnish accommodations to ' West L
street. The obstacle at present In the way
Of an extension of th atreet car service
is the poor condition of the I street via
duct, which will not support auch traf
fic The railroads and the Union Stock
yards have shown no disposition to recon
struct this viaduct. It la unknown that
the city can at present fore these com
panies to repair or reconstruct th same.
Th structure has been conaemned as un
safe for heavy vehicle, but his. not been
closed a yet. Th mayor appointed Lar
sen, Peterson and Dworak a committee
to wait on the' Omaha A Council Bluffs
Street Railway company to see what could
be done toward granting this extension. '
Oeenpatloa Tax Ordinance.
On of tha Important resolutions of the
meeting was thst th city attorney be In
structed to nraft an ordinance imposing
an occupation tax on an publle service
corporations and defining the method of
such an assessment. This is In accord
with a recent decision of the supreme
court of Nebraska, declaring auch action
valid. It 1 not known whether this tax
would In any affect th royalties paid un
der the charter, but It Is presumed not,
since the ordinances cannot supercede the
charter. Such a tax would simply be an
additional burden to be assumed by the
publle service corporation.
Water Plpta Franchise.
A new franchise ordinance waa Intro
duced granting the right to Thomas Geary
to lay pipe In the city streets for th
purpose of conveying the water of the
South Omaha mineral spring to any point
In th city. Such franchise' was Intro
duced before th former democratic council
over two years ago, when It waa discov
ered that a prominent democrat of the
city desired the franchise. Th council
therefore refused th franchise and voted
on to Dr. W. J. McCrann. The doctor
haa made no use of the privilege. There
fore th franchise, has practically lapsed
and la again introduced. The springs re
ferred ta ar located in Brown 'park.
An ordlnanc ws Introduced to compel
the Chicago. Rock Island Paolfic railroad

Lew Etter gave notice of a claim for
damages to his proierty to the amount

John McMillan gave notice of a suit for

The realism of "Salvation Nell" la terri
ble as truth Itself. It may be aeriouely
questioned If any good purpose Is served
by showing such sordldness to those who
know of it only by .hearsay. That open
ing scene In Bid McGovem's tough saloon
has been repeated thousands of times
perhaps millions, and will be. It may he
offered In support of its presentation at
all that It la essential to the artistic sym
mefry of the story 'as subsequently de
veloped. The argument Is the redeeming
power of love; "the metery of love Is
greater than the mystery of. death." and
Nell Sanders clings to Jim Piatt Just as
he does to her, because bark of it all la
that something that subsists between a
man and a woman that Is beyond analysts,
that defies reason, that baffles questioning.
It Is the something that leads the woman
to give up all, everything, on earth, un
questioning and without reserve to the
man, and that leada the man to come back
and back again to claim his own. It Is not
a new thought; It permeates everywhere,
and whether the scoffer admits It or not,
dally proof IS given of Its potency, and
womankind and mankind ar very much
alike at the bottom. "The colonel' lady
and Judy Brady are sisters under their
skin," and, by that same token, the colonel
and Tommy Atkins are brother when
stripped of their uniforms.,
Admitting the potency of love; It led
Nell 6anders down to scrubbing the floor
at Sid McGovem's tough saloon although
Mrs. Flake suggests rather than actually
performa the menial labor ascribed to her
position. It also led her to bodily fidel
ity to a man who was' about as worthless
a loafer as ever spent fne price of a worn
an's aaul for drink: And - It redeemed
them both; the woman turned to the shel
ter offered by the Salvation Army, for It
was that or Madame Coquette s place, and
she realised that aoon .she would be called
on to pay In the pain of motherhood the
price of her. love. Perhaps It was some
higher motive, but thjs Is the apparent
reason that turned her to the meana that
wrought In her the change '' which made
Salvation Nell out of the scrub- woman.
And out of this" gToww-the 'conditions that
bring home to Jfrf) 'PWt 'the thought that
he wants Nell more than he wants any
thing else In the worM',- and to get her
he must give over his Ideas of life In any
but honest way, and In this wa see the
apotheosis of humsn love, with a tinge
of th saving grace of divine love. Tet
all of this haa been shown us at other
times and In other ways, fsr more pleas
ant to behold than la this picture from the
lowest walks of life.
These objections are not the outburst of
prudery, nor do they spring from any hypo
critical pretense that aurh things Co not
exist. The fact of their existence Is only
too well known, but many other things
are known to exist that are not paraded
on the stage. That the theater Is no place
for a clinic of any sort haa been urged
many time before, and will be again and
more' the pity, clinics will still be held
on the stage.
But what' the use of arguing this point
here? Mrs. Flske has taken up the play
definitely, and Is giving It her serious at
tentlon. She lllumiiii-tei the character of
Nell Sanders with the light of her genius
for seeking out th soul-nature of whatever
woman she strives to' delineate, and the
fidelity she brings td her portrayal cf Leah,
of Mary, of Rebecca, of any of her many
roles, she gives to this. She shows Nell
Sanders, a soul wallowing In the lowest
of social morasre; nothing could well be
below the pcsitlon of scrub woman at a
saloon like Sid McGovem's, with the addi
tional degredatlon of being mistress to the
apparently lowest loafer around the ealoon
and she shows us the rise of that soul, till
It stands triumphant,, redeemed from the
physical and moral squalor of Its earlier
surroundings and rejoicing In the. approach
of happiness that would ahut out the past.
It is In Its way a psychological study as
earnest as that of Rclecca West, though
not comparing with It Ir Importance. The
won an of the Iba.m' drama was a woman
worth while, although she brought destruc
tlon to herself and her lover; Nell Banders
Is also a woman wr-rth while, and she
bring salvntlon to herself and to her lover,
But Juat as Rebecca West typifies the
intellectual, so Nell. Sunders stands tor the
physical; Roaruer was a weakling, and
could not grasp, his happiness, but Jim
Piatt gains strength from the woman he
loves and does.. All these and many. kin
dred thoughts are suggested by Mrs.
Flake's building up of the part.
Holbrook Blinn 1 a Jim Piatt worthy of
the Nell Sanders of the star. It Is not sure
that he dos no: ut times impress- itlr.ieeif
more extensively on the picture than she
does. It Is perhaps the correct perspective
that he should. He la the brute man, with
out gloss or refinement. "She's me gill
an' I mear.a to have her," is his argument.
It Is not fine sense' of chivalry (hat leads
him to strike down At McGovern; it Is the
brute Instinct of possession, the assertion
of property rights, and it is this that leads
him to pursue her to the very end, until
that last tragic moment, when, humbled
In spirit and contrite In heart, unable to
aay goodbye to the' woman he loves, he
stands before her and In broken words aaks
her to meet him after the meeting Inside
the barracks, and ahe rewards him by ask
ing him to stay, for the want him to go
home with her that night. It ta a fine
portrayal Mr. Blinn glvea of th character
In it moral progression and physical retro
gression. The great good natured, bullying
hulk of a man who killed another with
blows from his fist, comes home from
prison, broken In strength, full of bltt-.t
resentment, and actuated by on desire
to get hi "girl" and flee from the un
friendly surroundings of his youth. And
shu holds him her aad overcomes his brut
nature and leave th (lnal Impression that
he is about to enter on - a life of useful
endeavor. The whole I finely don. -Another
chapter' might be written oo th
work of the others In the largo company.
Hope Latham's Mrtle Odell. Mary Msdl
son s ."Rallelujah Masale.-one hesitate'
where to stop In naming the character
that deserve Individual mention. And in
realMm of an the surroundlnas Is such tha
needs no commendation, it Is perfectl
to the last shocking detail. In this at least
the work of Mr. and Mrs. Flske hss been
done with a fidelity that hss been if any
thing too faithful. The diama Is lmpres
sire, lut the Impression Is not pleasant.
The Burwood was filled last nliit b
such an audience as only assembles there
when Mrs. Flske Is In town. It was a
thoroughly satisfied andlence that paid to
the star and her company th merited
tribute of continued applause, and yet such
expressions aa were heard after the fail
of the last curtain were of a single ton.
Folks would much rather have seen her In
something a trifle less somber.
