NOT TIIE REAL SCHLATTER
Dead Man at Hastings Eaid to Be the
ORIGINAL DIED SOME TEARS AGO
Faker Reeeatly la Omaha and He !
Relieved In Be lae Mia Whose
Body Call for Identlfl
eatloa. Beversl men are now In Omaha who
visited Denver In 1SI6 or ISM at the time
"Schlatter" was creating: auch a sensation
there through hla dlvlno healing processes
at the Alderman Fox residence, and they
doubt extremely If the man now dead at
Heatings and who waa recently in Omaha
ia the original Schlatter.
It will be remembered that Schlatter dls
appeared from Denver Just aa suddenly aa
he appeared there. He waa reported to
have been aeen afterward In many parts
of the country, and several men, proteasing
to be the original Schlatter, undertook to
perform the cures attributed tn him a few
weeks after his disappearance, but with
On thing la certain: that there haa been
for yeara another man, regarded aa a
sheer charlatan, representing himself a
Schlatter. Thla man waa very recently In
Omaha and In The Bee office, but finding
poor harvest here he drifted on, and
there la a popular belief that thla la the
man who died at Hastings.
Jok Worked oa Easy Oaea.
Ed Wilson, formerly chief of police at
Beatrice, (who had aeen the original Schlat
ter In Denver), and who la now employed
with the detective service of the Burling
ton, tella a droll story regarding an al
leged Schlatter appearing at Beatrice
shortly after the disappearance of tha
original Schlatter from Denver.
"Some Joker had registered the name of
"Schlatter" on the Paddock hotel register
and the story very soon spread that Schlat
ter was in town and would do the healing
atunt at the Paddock hotel. There waa a
German living in Beatrice at tha time by
the name of Qua Schmidt, who everybody
knew and, who waa somewhat of a practi
cal Joker. He bore a falc resemblance to
Schlatter, wearing fairly long hair and a
blonde beard, and It occurred to soma of
the other practical Jokera of Beatrice to
have Qua pose aa Schlatter, and . bless a
few handkerchiefs and do aome divine heal
ing. Gua took up with the Idea, and we
hired a room for him on the Court atreet
front on the third floor of the Paddock
hotel. A placard waa written and placed
In the lobby of the hotel stating that Schlat
ter would be ready for business at 10
o'clock that morning, and at 4 o'clock In
the afternoon he would do aome long dis
tance healing from hla window and blesa
the poor and othera who were unable to
meet him personally. The whole thing waa
to be dorus without cost to those to be
blest and healed. Did It take? Well I
guess yea. '
Go to Get Doable Dose.
"The funniest part of the proceedings waa
that Beatrice had aent thirty or forty
cltlaena to Denver to be cured by the real
Schlatter, and they knew- him fairly- well.
Many of them remaining there two or three
-daya to get a double dose or cure.. Well,
practically all of these people who had
been to Denver to see the original Schlat
ter, were willing to ewear that Gua Schmidt
was the real thing and were among the
first to visit him at the Paddock hotel
"The door to Gua' room waa permitted to
be only partly open and he being dressed
In similitude to the real Schlatter could
only be aeen indistinctly through tha half
opened door. Well, handkerchiefs went In
there by bales to be blessed, and the own
era had the completest faith In the efficacy
of the cure they would give.
"The hotel waa Jammed with the crazy
mob waiting for a blessing, and the thing
began to look serious. We managed to
get the crowd away on the representation
that Schlatter wanted 8 little rest before
beginning the public blessing from the win
dow. Well, when 4 o'clock came Court
atreet In front of the Paddock hotel was
literally Jammed with people waiting for
Bale of Handkerchiefs.
"We had In the meanwhile bought an
other bale of cheap handkerchiefs, and got
Gua to stand between the partly opened
where: to eat.

was a mighty scramble for them. Never
for a moment did the crowd doubt but that

Nebraska Productive Wealth;
It's Poverty in Advertising
The facta presented in the letters printed
below are of deep Interest to the people of
Nebraska. They deserve serious consider
ation and remedial action at the earliest
poasible day. In a pyramid of statistics
are shown the quantity and value of the
product! of the state. Beside it Is a showing
of the penurious policy of the state In tell
ing the world of Its productive wealth. In
other words, nature and Industry produce
"the goods," but the state fatla to advertise
In a note accompanying the letter of In
quiry and the reply. General C. F. Mander
aon explains that he wrote to the deputy
commissioner of labor for additional light
on the statistics of the products of Ne
braska contained In the annual report of
he bureau. "You wilt aee," he writes,
"that my estimate of 1100.000,000 aa the
value of the products of this state for the
year 1908 was much short of the facts.
With the great development of the state
during the last twelve months I firmly
believe . that the value of the products of
the state, which by the estimate of Mr.
Maupln, were $610,000,000 in 1908,' have prob
ably increased ao that the year 1909 will
show our products to approximate $750,000,
000. These figures are enormoua and almost
challenge belief, but those of ua who are
tamillar with the state will realize that It
ia not an over estimate."

General Manderson's letter, dated Oc
tober 13, to the deputy commissioner of
"I received the report of the bureau of
labor and ' Industrial statistics and have
looked It over wlth Interest. There is
much Informatlor) in It that Is of value,
but I wish It went Into greater detail and
gave the value of the different products
of the state about which It treats.
"A short time ago I was in Cleveland,
nnd coming down from my . room to the
office in the Hollenden hotel, I saw an
other Nebraskan who waa with me In
Cleveland alttlng by the aide of an old
gentleman who recognised me, and I aaw
that he waa looking at my companion In
an Incredulous way and aa he might look
at a champion liar. My Nebraska friend
said: 'Suppose you ask General Mander.
son to give you hla estimate of the value
of the products of Nebraska.' I aald: 'I
have aeen It stated lately that the products
of Nebraska resulting from agriculture and
labor are valued at $400,000,000 annually,
and I do not believe, from what I know
of the state, that this is an over estimate.
The state had 1,070,000 people by the census
of 1890 and I think the census of 1910
may ahow It to have 1,250,000, so you aee
the product stated meana that there la a
production of the value of $300 or $400 for
every man, woman and child In the state.'
"The Ohio man seemed utterly astounded
for, like many other people in the east, he
haa always looked upon Nebraska as a
"I think it would be of great value to
the atate If you would take all products,
whether of labor In manufacture, or the
result of labor tn cultivation, and give an
estimate of the value so that It might be
given to the world. Figures of buahela and
acrea and of the number of live atock of
all aorta do not carry Information that la
of 'great value to the average mind, but
when you put It In dollars It appeals to
"For my gratification, and, indeed for my
use, where I think It will do the state much
good. I wish you would make an estimate
for me of the value of Nebraska products
in all lines. With the information that you
have you could approximate very nearly
to the actual value.

early convenience and will, of course, see
that you and your office get the credit that
Is fairly due for the material furnished."

few things about this department, hoping
to enlist your support to the end that the
bureau of labor and census statistics will
be so equipped that It may, in future, do
something really worth while in the mat

going Into the details you request, let
me give you some Idea of the handicaps
under which this department labors:

Young Bride at Convention is Cause
of Some Little Delicate
The local entertainment committee of the
Women's Christian Temperance union Is
having Its own dlfflcultler to meet. There
have been many who changed their minds
at the eleventh hour and asked to be al
lowed to entertain pergonal friends instead
of strangers and other equally vexing
things have had to be met, but the com
nJttee met a unlcue difficulty Friday
A young woman whose credentials bore
the prefix "Miss" and who had been as
signed with several others to one of the
homes for entertainment, blushlngly ex
plained that she would like another place
a place for two In a room. The committee
looked over its list and passed her a
card for another place, where one delegate
had already been quartered. Looking it
over she handed that back too as unsatis
factory. The busy assignment clerk an
nounced that was the best she could do.
"Well, I must have a room for two," In
sisted the young woman, ana tien she ex
plained confidentially, "You see, I was
married a few days ago and my husbam
has come to the convention with me."
The assignment clerk "saw," but as en
tertalnment is being provided for dele
gates only, no provision had been madt
for husbands, and upon learning thla, the
bride left without even giving her name
or her delegation.
