OMAHA. Oct. r. To the Editor of The
Bee: Referring to ex-governor Robert B.
Glenn's speech made at a recent session
of the W. C. T. U., It seems that In his
nxiety to prove that prohibition does pro
hibit, he still persists In the many times
dlaproven assertion, that U. 8. internal
revenue receipts were decreased because
some southern states lately adopted prohi
bition. I append herewith figures from the re
ports from the Commissioner of Lnitcd
States Internal revenue, showing wlthdraw-
ls from bond of spirituous liquors, which
represent the quantity tax paid for con
sumption during the last eleven years.
(The fiscal year ends June 90th, 1. a. the
year 1900 covers the period from July t
IMS to June SO, 1909:

The falling off during the year 1907 to
1908 was dua entirely to the panic of Octo
ber, 1907, and does not mean decreased con
sumption, but merely a reduction of floor
Stocks In the hands of wholesale and retail
dealers who, on account of the panic, could
not obtain currency for paying revenue
taxes, as demanded by the government at
that time, being thus compelled to do busi
ness from hand to mouth.
This reduction, you will see. Is more than
offset during the next following year end
ing last June, when the withdrawals from
bond were nearly a million gallons greater
than during ths heaviest previous year, the
most prosperous the country has ever seen.
n other words. Instead of falling off over
five million gallons, as the governor, mis
represents, there has been an Increase of
one million gallons over the largest previ
ous Annual consumption, notwithstanding
the area added to prohibition territory.
This laat year In fact was twenty-two mil
lion gallons above the average for the last
It does seem that the W. C. T. U. when
engages foreign spellbinders, paying
them large fees, would demand correct
statistics from such people; otherwise the
public must believe that Its causa needs
bolstering up by falsehood, and will neces
sarily doubt the truth of other statements
made by such speakers.
A. I METER
City Clerk Agralast Registrars.
OMAHA, Oct. W. To the Editor of The
Bee: Now that the fall registration Is
over and inasmuch ss our democratic city
clerk has, (since his re-election) repeatedly
boasted ot the horrible things he would
do "under the law" to those citizens filling
the thankless position of supervisor? If
found deficient, I would ask sufficient
space to gtve the experience of one of that
number, who although never very tardy In
the prosecution ot Its duties, was Inveigled
nto accepting the same for another year
by the false representations made at the
city clerks' office.
About six weeks ago being asked by the
chief olerk If I would serve another year for
my ..precinct. . I , answered In the negative,
but subsequently consented to Berve. Cal
ling the morning after the registration of
October 5th, last, and asking an explanation
of an apparent repudiation of the condi
tion of my service, I was told by same
party that "Dan did it." Upon Clerk But
ler's arrival I went Into the inner office
and stated the esse in detail, (although he
hardly looked at me); In a very surjy man
ner he replied, "Well, .what of It, I leave
all thoae things to the chief clerk, and what
he says goes see? Now don't come around
here bothering me." I replied that I hardly
thought It necessary to call again hav
ing heard both of their. statements It waa
very easy to size up the situation.
If this official, so scrupulous concerning
those who devote fifteen to eighteen hours
time for a paltry Stipend, would but con
form to the legal requirements himself, he
would be more consistent; let him see that
the supervisors are provided always with
the proper blanks so that the proper copy
can ba made for publlo Inspection of all new
names added; let him see that the registra
tion offices are habitable and fairly warm;
let him make the rounds and show himself
upen registration day and familiarize him
self with conditions; but no, he leaves it
all to another, and what he says goes, see?
It might also be well for him, hereafter,
to see that names of all deoeAsed demo
crats are stricken from the voting lists
as promptly as he has those of republicsns
especially Just before city election. I oh
served this marked partiality last fall.
Although this official has been In office
for m years, and has had the opportunity
of meeting Intelligent business people. It
seems to have had no effect; he may be
considered a good representative of hla
party, although I doubt It; I do realise.
howeyer, that he reflects no credit upon
the Irish raoe, and I only hope that he Is
the last of his kind to afflict the public at
the city hall or elsewhere In this vicinity

REPUBLCIANS FAR AHEAD
ON REGISTRATION FIGURES
Have 4,460 More Votes aa Lists Thaw
the Democrats Are Cred
On Saturday last the republicans regis
tered 4.035, the democrats 1,833 and those
answering no party 678, a total of 7,548.
This, added to the number registered here
tofore, gives a total of 17,036 on the regis
tration lists for the election to be held
The division of the registration between
the parties stands: Republicans, 1,865;
democrats, 1,336; no party affiliation, l.SM.
This high total credited to the "no party"
element Is largely accounted for by the
fact that some registration officers held
that no man should give his party affilia
tion, notably . In precincts of the Fifth,
Sixth and Twelfth .wards.
Following Is the total registration by

true as when
Hamlet said It to the playere. Theater
goers who elected to see Mrs. Carter in
her first offering here and the better
known one, made a mistake, for "Vasta
Heme" Is a far better drama than
"Kassa," and was a better acted one.
Proof of this is to be found In the im
pression the two plays made upon their
respective audlencea. Not only was audi
bls expression of appreciation more
strongly in evidence last night at the end
of acts, but the compliment of close and
hushed attention was paid during the
tense soenes, as it was not upon the other
Mr. Peple has given Mrs. Carter a
drama which, while not without some
minor faults, la thoughtfully wrought, log
ically, developed, true in its essence and
with some merit of novelty. It will
awaken not horror and revolt, as does Mr.
Long's play, but. Instead, some measure
at least of awe, which Is the' trua func
tion of tragedy.
Mrs. Carter is playing In "Vasta Heme"
a woman who has trespaased once beyond
the border to pass which Is for a woman
the most tragic predicament In life. Bnt
the trouble which comes on this account
when a love for another and a better man
developa, is not the chief subject ot the
early part of the play. The climax to
result from this Is held back while her
struggles with another affliction are still
pending. Hartley Bellalre. publisher, not
only has tricked Vasta Heme In this be
ginning, but, discovering that by eneourag
Ing her In the use of laudanum he can
obtain from her pen a series ot novels
startling in a phantasmagoric way, he
urxes her on and on In the drug hsblt.
The struggle to overcome the opium habit
practically monopolizes the first two acts.
Next. Vasta Heme, helped out of slav
ery by the advice of and her love for a
Dr. Dudley Maury, is confronted by Bel
lalre with a threat to tell the other man.
He Is told in Bellalre's presence by the
woman herself. The attack falls, with
Maury still willing to marry her.
Ths drama seemed here to portend a con
ventional, commonplace, "bless-you-my-
children" ending, but fear of this Is quickly
dispelled by the scene which closes this,
the third act. The woman sends Maury
from her, deceiving him as to herself, her
action being, of course, taken in a spirit
of sacrifice. Then In the fourth act he'
comes back to have her die In his arms.
The bald narration of the central facts
of oe slory conveys little Idea of the grip
v.hlch a large part of the play has upon
an audience. Not altogether easily Im
pressionable people sat with tight clenched
fingers while Mrs. Carter portrayed al
most too vividly the sufferings of a soul
deep down In torment. One may Say soul
advisedly, tor there is anguish of the spirit
as well as pain of the body and there was,
too, again and again that thrilling clash
and collision of character with character
essential to living drama.
Mrs. Carter rouses admiration the most
as an actress through her wonderful elo
cution. Given one of the finest women's
voioes on the ttage, she has a smooth and
facile technic which allows the employment
of that voice in the fullest possible-measure.
When she runs up a little vqcal
climax, repeating, for instance, a word
reveral times, the gradation of emphasis
Is exquisitely precise. And although In
respect to elocution her merit is superla
tive she Is not lacking In others.
E. J. Ratcllffe and John Glendinnlng, re
spectively, the Bellalre and ..Maury of the
play, both appeared to better advantage
than the evening before. Mr. Glendinnlng
In particular was more forceful and con
vincing. The minor characters were less
Inconsequential, too, and Miss Florence
Malone and William J. Shay furnished
some effective comedy relief, all the more
effective because an audience previously
taut-strung was the more eaally moved to
laughter. The two would have succeeded,
however, without this advantage. .
Maay Doctors Prescribe
proprietary medicines under a Latin name,
charging for the written prescription three
times the cost of the medicine, and do not
hesitate to condemn that self-same medi
cine If it 's advertised or mentioned by
There are. however, many honest doctors
who do nut hesitate to openly reoommend
and prescribe such standard remedies as
Lydia E. Plnkham's Vegetable Compound.
