Uebestod (Tristan and Isolde) Wagner
Mr. Edwin Schneider at the piano.
Madame Johanna Oadskl, the renowned
prima donna, appeared In song recital
last night for the first time In Omaha.
Years ago Madam Gadskl sang in th
sam theater the role of Michaels In
"Carmen," and the memory of her high
soft tones Is with many local muslo lovers
to this present time. Then In th Audi
torium, Madame Gadskl appeared since
that time as soloist with the Pittsburg
Symphony orchestra, under Mr. Emll
Paur. Last night a full program was
the prima donna's means of communi
cation with her audience. She was
greeted with the real genuine "loud and
prolonged- applause and was gracious
to the last degree In giving encore and
double encore. Madame Gadskl haa surely
no ground for complaint against the
Omaha people from the standpoint of
reception, appreciation and manifesta
tion of th latter.
Madame Gadskl sang a program which
was not only well diversified but was also
very exacting. She did not spare herself
In the least, but actually closed her pro
gram with that wonderful outpouring of
Isolde over the dead Tristan It would be
sacrilege to call It an aria; It Is far too
xalted for a classification Ilk that, and
all honor to Madam Gadskl that she left
one with the strong Impression that he
would go far to aee her and hear her in
terpret that role of roles, th apotheosis
of dramatic singing parts.
In each of th great prima donnae on
finds soma special point of Interest which
Is an Individual characteristic. This Is not
th place to Indulge In comparisons, so
passing the relative virtues of the chief
singers of the nations, one must linger
with pleasure in contemplation of the won
derful pianissimo tones which the singer
of last night displayed to her satisfied au
dience. Madame Gadskl, In her soft tone
work, should be the model for every singer
and student of singing. It is tha part of
singing which so many slight, and yet it
Is the most beautiful of all the charms of
the vocal art. Seldom does one behold, if
ever, such consummate skill In the use of
the upper vole In delicacy and ethereal
ity. And then, still more remarkable, the
absolute facility and Integrity of pronun
ciation therein. In some of her song th
transition, suddenly and startllngly, from
a huce dramatic outburst to the mi
small voice" was almost superhuman.
Madame Gadskl Is a dramatic singer
through and through: she Is for the most
part a dramatic Interpreter: she enters
into her work with high Intelligence and
command of her Intellectual forces.
Mr. Edwin Schneider played very Inter
esting and illuminating accompaniments,
and was heard In some solo numbers which
delighted the audience. Madame Oadskl
also sang some of Mr. Schneider's songs
which showed originality and musicianship.

The plaintiff has a good deal of money, but
this has not helped to make the course of
true love run any smoother course than
th proverbial one.
Another auto replevin suit now filed In
county court Is brought by J. H. E. Fred

Central Labor union, in conjunction with a
mass meeting of the South Omaha union
men. The hall was, comfortably filled.
Thomas Conway presided and introduced
P. J. Barrett and P. J. Tralnor, who made
short addresses on the influence of the
working men. P. J. Barrett emphasized the
need of the working men taking an IntereBi
in all elections and see to it that the right
kind of men be elected to the offices.
P. J. Tralnor spoke briefly, expressing
sympathy with the workingmen in their
struggle for better conditions and advtBing
sane methods of procedure.

Coal lltt Want Help.
The South Omaha coal dealers have been
doing a heavy business during the cold
snap, and more than usual on account of
the warm weather before It. Nearly every
dealer complains that help cannot be se
cured nor have they teams enough to keep
up with the orders. Several of the local
dealers have two days' hauling ahead cf
them. Many people are impatient at th
delays, and it has been the practice for
dealers to deliver coal by the sack to
keep customers going until their orders
cat. bo filled.
Foot Ball Team Wants Dates.
South Omaha High school foot ball team
has been seriously handicapped lately bv
lack of games. Enough were negotiated
to fill the schedule until after South
Omaha defeated Counoll Bluffs by an
overwhelming score. When that was an

pay all expensea and pay the admission
of tne whole team to the Minnesota-Nebraska
game for any team to meet South
Omaha Friday afternoon or Saturday
morning. He found a number of schools
with open dates but none which cared to

melodrama, just before the fait of the cur

In lovo with the wife of his foreman, a
hard-working employe. He seeks to break
up the happy horns by enticing the wife
away, but he runs against some hard

the beautiful young wife and also of an
unforgiving hero, in the person of the hus
