Mini Fdllh Tobllt, librarian, presented
her annual report for 1909 at the January
mating of the library board. The report
showed a R'n'ial Increase In ail depart
ment! eticu as would naturally come with
tho Increased growth nf the city. All linen
of work were discussed very fully.
A books . represent the stock of the
public, library naturally most attention was
given to this department. Six thousand
four hundred and twenty-four books were
added of which one-third were duplicates.
Theso purchases represented a la: go col
lection relating to useful arts, some books
of architecture and many books In foreign
language) 'is well as history, literature,
fine arf ft, and . works on all subjects con
tained In a popular library.
The uso of books for home circulation In-creaV-d
12.0OJ volumes over 19uS. This U
probably due to the growth of the city.
Borrowers are Allowed two cards, one on
which may bo drawn flctkm or any book
and the, other only books which are not
fiction,', A fiction finding list was dis
tributed, ree of charge, to patrons. Lists
of books III foreign languages and many
sprclal (tats have made known to the
pnlllo the contents of the library. Of all
the books ltu:d the circulation of fiction
wai but 08 per cent, a very low average.
Generally libraries are credited with 1s
aulng almost all fiction. The figures prove
the fallacy of this. statement.
The question. Is . frequently a.ked If It
Is yet time to observe the benefit of the
great attention' given to work among the
children In libraries. The great increase In
the' use of books In the adult department
Is recognised as a result of this careful
training of the children.
The Rummer vacation club for boys and
girls had a membership of seventy. Al
mott ail of the iiieiiibtntg lead the required
number of books. The story hour held
once each, week has had a, largo attend
ance. Tho Noise stories were told the
first part of the year and later the stories
of Charlerrt'agne asil his Puladln?. A col
lection of books for the young people just
leaving the children's room, has been gath
ered together ;f or 'tli e 'se of the boys and
girls who ars not yet ready to independ
ently select" their books from the adult
department, , .
Books were Issued to the public schools,
the parochial schools, the school for the
deaf and many private schools. The cir
culation Is entirely without membership
cards, the- books being issued according
to a special plan adopted by each school.
The high school students have represented
the largest percentage, of reference room
visitors. Outside of the required reading,
they havetiad assistance In the making of
class programs, the selection of plays and
dialogues and the preparation of the work
for the debates. High school students from
Benson South Omaha and Bellevue have
also used' the library In connection with
their debates. The largest bibliography of
the year 'was the one prepared on the sub
ject of French art for the Omaha Society
of Fine Arts. .This brought Into use all of
the material on the study of French art

were also used In the selection of picture

for the use of the class previously men

of the Woman's club, the Mu Hlgma club,

The reading room has added during 1909
a number of newspapers In foreign lan
guages, also periodicals in foreign lan
guages which were circulated after one

Massarhosetts Papers Give Extended
Notlee to Father of Well Known
i Omaha Attorney.
Pprlr.gfleld, Mass., papers devote consider
able space to the notice of the death of
Dr. John B. Iearned of Florence, Mass.,
father of Myron Learned of Omaha. Dr.
Learned, who was 71 years of age, had
been very active, not alone In the practice,
of medicine, but In other ways, He took
great Interest In educational matters and
served the public In this connection In
rrany ways, chiefly as a member of the

PREDICTS GOOD WHEAT CROP
George Campbell of Wy more ays
Reeent Suow Did No Harm
' Prospect la Excellent.
George Campbell of Wymore of the
board of commissioners of Qage county
does not give credence to the report, that
tho snow has had the effect of rotting
the winter wheat to any perceptible ex
tent. "On the contrary," said Mr. Campbell,
"In my thirty or more years residence In
Nebraska I have never seen the winter
wheat In finer condition than It la now.
The snow blanketed the ground before It
had a chance to freeie and the wheat has
been given a substantial start,
"The wheat fields in Douglas, Sarpy,
Lincoln, Saline and Oage countlea, where
the (now had gradually thawed away,
have a bright, healthy and vigorous ap
pearance. The growth Is not rank, but
It Is remarkably even, and I am looking
for one of the best crops of wheat we
have ever had In southern Nebraska. It
will take an unprecedentedly severe spell
of weather to hurt the wheat now."

Some Things You Want to Know
The English Elections How the Newspapers Fight.-
The English newspapers In a political
campaign go quite as wild as the public
speakers or their friends, the hecklers. The
Ind'-pendent Journal is all but unknown,
every newspaper Is a party organ, and
every one goes Its full length In praise of
Its candidates and In derogation of thoe
of the other party. Tho liberal newspapers
refer to their conservative contemporaries
as the yellow press, always with capital
letters. The torles retort by calling the
radical papers "socialistic rags." But
neltlier over admits defects In Its own
party or sees virtue In the opposition. It
may be said that many American news
papers arq quite the same during political
campaigns, and It Is true In many In
stances, so far as the editorial columns are
concerned. But no d.illy newspaper In the
United States, however partisan on Its edi
torial page, would dare to use Its news
columns ss do the British papers.
The British press for so many year has
congratulated Itself upon Its superiority
above American Journalism that even
Americans are Ircllned to credit the Eng
lish boasts. It Is true that big headlines
are rot used In the English papers, and
therefore the outward and visible signs so
often associated with yellow Journalism
are not In evldenco In England. . But It Is
possible to be "yellow" In small type, and
even tinder small headlines which give no
hint whatever of the nature or character
of the article which follows. .The methods
of the British press In campaign time
leave no doubt on that score.
In the first place, nearly every English
newspaper occupies the relation of "organ"
to one of the two principal parties, and
nearly every one Is further Identified with
some particular clique or following. The
party organs are slavishly devoted to par
titan Interests as American newspapers
were forty years ago.
During this parliamentary campaign one
cf the London evening papers published an
article on the sensational press in the
United States, declaring that the "authori
ties" In America recognised that some
thing must be done to correct the evils
of the utter and absolute untrustworthlneas
of the American press. In the same article
It was charged that thoughtful Americans
fear that the United States Is about to
come under the domination of a newspaper
oligarchy, representing the worst and most
sensational section of the American press.
The article concluded with an Indictment
of the American newspapers for the "im
propriety" of each newspaper having Its
own policy with respect to public affairs.
At that time the campaign was In Its
Climacteric week and the newspapers were
flooded with election news vastly more
space being devoted to politics than Is
given by American newspapers. One news
paper had a review, by constituencies, of
all tbe London and nearby contests. In
each and every case the special corre
spondent pointed out that the ''right man"
could not possibly fall of election. An op
position newspaper on the same day, In
the news columns, claimed every one of
these seats for Its party, each paper de
plored the Indecent tactics of the opposi
tion party In each constituency, and each
accused the other of all sorts of outrages
Mr. Lloyd-Oeorge In a speech about the
merchant marine referred to the British
tonnage of eleven millions. The telegraph
wires got twisted and In many newspa
pers he was made to say L 100.000,000. The
error was palpable, but the conservative
press 'gave great space and prominent
headlines to what was called another ex
ample of the chancellor's Inexactitude. Im
mediate correction was made, of course,
but many of the papers did not print it.
One of the principal morning papers
printed the correction, but placed It with
out ft headline as a two-Una note under a
letter from a contributor gently calling
Mr. Lloyd-George a liar. Over the whole
was a prominent headline "The Chancel
The principal newspapers. Instead of de
voting space to an exposition of the Issues
they represented, printed long accounts of
the heckling of peers and stories of the
unpopularity of the Tory leaders. They
made no effort to refute the arguments
of the other party by publishing news ar
ticles giving the facts in the controversy,
but contented themselves with long and
heavy edltorUils about the constitutional
questions Involved. The news oolumns
were devoted entirely to the smallest Items
of Inconsequential news from the various
local fights not one n a thousand of
which could get by the desk of an Amer
ican news editor.
The conservative newspapers were much
more effective in their style of campaign
ing, although they laid themselves open to
the charge of representing the yellowest of
all yellow Journalism. To read a stout
tory paper Curing the campaign one would
have believed that the German invasion
JOHN SMITH CUT IN FIGHT
Colored Man Severely Hort, bat Caase
f Trouble Does Not
John Smith, colored, was badly cut last
night In a fight at Smith's home, 1600 Burt
street. Officer Anderson arrested Albert
Harper for being Implicated In the fight,
but Harper says he was not the man who
did the cutting.
Officer Egan, patrol conductor, went to
the place and found Smith bleeding pro
fusely from seven bad cuts on his shoulders
and arms. The Injured man was taken, to
the police station, where his wounds were
dressed by assistant police surgeons. . but
Smith would not allow them to sew up the
cuts and he was taken to his home, where
a colored surgeon was called.
Smith says a colored man named Ed
Morris did the cutting. . There were three
men In the fight, but Smith declares that
Morris was the one who wielded the knife.
Smith Is a hodcarrlrr and one of the best
men physically among the colored popula
tion. When arrested he had a revolver of
large caliber with him, but It was not
alleged that he mode any effort to use it
on his assailants.
Smith would not tell what caused the
fight, but Harper says It was "nothing but

Try Chamberlain's Cough Remedy when

with the prompt relief afforded,
could not possibly be postponed for more
than two days; that the whole country was
In financial ruin and wreck: that the
radical leaders wero all anarchists with
designs on the life and property of all the
rich; and that another liberal victory would
be a license to the mob to plunder and
sack. No American newspaper, In the
onslaughts against political "burglars
has ever used stronger language than was
applied every day In scores of conservative
newspapers to the liberal leaders.
At the very last of the' campaign. Just
as the polls were opened. "The Times,"
the most staid, dignified and solemn of all
Journals, compressed Its views Into this
sentence: "The liberals apparently rely
upon the black bread fiction, at which
educated Germany Is laughing, on pension
lies, on Impudent appeals to every form of
Ignorance, and ' on the Invective of the
Probably one-half of the space devoted
to politics In the newspapers was given
over to our old friends, "P. B. Publico,"
and "Veritas." Sometimes these com
munications were Interesting, but usually
they were merely long-winded expositions
of personal views, or labored and extended
explanations Of trivial Incidents.
The organs on neither side made any use
of the news article bearing on controverted
policies. Although both parties maintained
effective lMerary bureaus and sent out
great quantities of exceedingly attractive
campaign documents and arguments, the
newspapers made no use of this material
except when they reproduced some pictorial
poster, or when they quoted from such
documents for the purpose of Inviting the
public to purchase thern In pamphlet form.
The "Interview," the great American
channel of distributing political news and
views, is not used at all. The public men
make all their announcements and argu
ments lit their speeches; and If occasion
demands an , Immediate statement it is
made in the form of a letter to some politi
cal friend, and the letter Is then made
publto through the press, j
One difficulty about the interview In
England Is that the ordinary newspaper
reporters are not. given that confidence
which is reposed In them by American
political leaders. .This Is not because the
British reporters are untrustworthy, for
the opposite is the case. It Is because the
stratified and .classified constitution of
British society makes the London reporter
get his news from the fourth under-asslst-ant
secretary, instead of from the cabinet
member himself, as does tho Washington
correspondent Exceptions are made, of
course, In favor of the most prominent
The tory papers mode the most of Lloyd
George's escape. . In policeman's clothing:

was to address a pro-Boer meeting, anft
continually reprinted It They repeated
over and over, after many denials, what
Was known as the "Lord Savile charge,"
or the "Lord Savile He." according to your
politics, that Mr., Lloyd-George hadcheered
a British defeat In the South African war
while in his seat in the commons. At the
Instance of the chancellor. Lord Savile re
tracted the charge, but the press kept It up.
The liberal newspapers, supporting the
government, poked fun at the noble lords
In a fashion which would have done credit
to America's liveliest Journals. They , said
the peer's speeches reeked of the stables
and that pertain particular peers, naming
names, ought to learn how to be gentlemen
first and noblemervJater. .
Compared with American newspapers the
British Journals. ;in political activity are
directed with less, skill, are more partisan,
are more given over to abuse and unsup
ported denunciation of the other side. .
Charges of corruption do not appear In
the British press as freely as they do In
the Amerlcal papers at election times.
There are two reasons corruption Is not
nearly . so prevalent on account of the
stringent laws, arid things which are con
sidered corrupt in the United States are
here condoned ,or looked upon as quite
light. For Instance, the press of an
American city would ring with charges of
corruption If a representative of a certuln
railroad combine were to run for con
gress for the express and avowed purpose
of representing that railway I system. It
Is done by Indirection, of course, but no one
would dare to do It openly. In England the
groat business cpneerns have men In Parlia
ment as a matter of right. English elec
tions are much more free from corruption
than American. , but the British press can
not successfully claim the seme superiority.
Over here a man yho reads "The Dally
News'' is' utterly Impossible as a social
acquaintance. .. .thinks the conservative;
while the reader of "The Dally Express"
is looked upon by all , good liberals as a
potential cracksman. They take things

L D. BOUVIER EARLY SETTLER
Prominent Member of Nebraska
Pioneers' Association Cum
West In INS 4.
L. D. Bouvler, who came to Nebraska
with his parents In April, 1854, Is still living
on the old homestead taken up by his
father near DeSoto, Washington oounty,
in that year.
Mr. Bouvler, though one of the youngest
in years, ranks as one of the earliest pio
neers of the state. He has distlnot recollec
tions, as a child, of the pioneer days when
Omaha consisted of but three or four apol
ogies for log cabins.
He is the proud possessor of a badge, pre
sented him at the last meeting of the Ne
braska Pioneers' association In Lincoln,
which is given only to the earliest settlers
of the state. The badge is a metalllo affair
upon the face of which there Is represented
In relief a prairie schooner, drawn by an
ox team, passing a group of three Indlun
tepees. The badge Is suspended from a
bar of the same .material on which Is the
word "Nebraska," In relief. The lettering
on the badge gives the date of the arrival
of the possessor and his name. All of the
older pioneers will be furnished with these
badges by the state association.
Mr. Bouvler well remembers when the
Mormons were encamped at Florence, and
he frequently vlsltsd their encampment. He
has also an Illuminated map, representing
the Mormon migration from Nauvoo, III.,
In 1846. The map shows the date of each
camp, rm.de by this first migration and
how long the Mormons remained In each
place. It also has a good picture of Brig

, "On January 16 Louis Anderson, sr., was
