part of H. B. Fleharty, council for the de

The evidence submitted to the police
court was much stronger than had been
supposed, although a number of the wit
nesses for the prosecution testified unwill
ingly. Most noticeable of these was Albert
Slager, who admitted having been one of
the party, and to have helped carry the
beer. He tiled to establish the. fact that
he was too drunk to know anything about
the case, but he remembered that all tho

Chris Perlna, the new sanitary Inspector,
has announced an active policy, now that
his appointment has been confirmed and
he expects to begin by serving notices for
a general cleaning up of the alleys and
back yards of the city. He said that the
notices would permit the residents three
days ' In which to comply, then if their
premises were not cleaned he would at
once order their arrest for violating the
city ordinances. He held the position that
much of the summer season diseases, In
cluding diphtheria and scarlet fever come
from poor sanitation, and for" this reason
will take active measures that no blame
will rest on him for not being active in
his office. He said it was not necvtisary
for people to wait until he served notice on
them, (but that he hoped they would take
the hint and clean up.

ing. It had been Indicated to the coun
cil that the assistant veterinarian would
be forced to resign, were his request for an
assistant not granted. The new function
ary shall have a salary of t0 a month.
The only hitch that arose In considera
tion of the request was the question,
whether it Involved the creation of new
office, In which case an ordinance would
be required. The council In the end de
cided that an assistant to an assistant
properly was merely un employe and not
an official, and that therefor, tho council
could act without framing an ordinance.
City Clerk Butler received quite a task,
when the council, upon a resolution from
Councilman lierka, ordered him to gather
data from forty cities to be used In con
sideration of the petition from the Omaha
Klectrlo Light and Power company, for an
ordinance. Mr. llcrka's resolution recom

The committee of tho whole was alBO
empowered to proceed in arranging to pay
the Omaha Electric Light and Power com
pany, for the maintenance of four lights,
which since August 1903, have been used
without cost to the city. This action was
In response to the threat from tho com
pany that the lights would be discontinued

charges, if an agreement were lot reached
by June 1, 1910. The lights in question

AYLESWORTH 0N SUFFRAGE
Finds Woman at Meeting; Who Takes
Opposite View of Question
, Froirt Him.
Both sides of. ha ,syfrge question were
represented Tuosday,.,afternoon when Dr.
Barton O. Ayleswort,h, lecturer and organ
izer for the National American Woman
Suffrage association, spoke at the Young
Women's Christian association under the
auspices of the Omaha Woman's Christian
Temperance union. Dr. Aylesworth, whose
lecture was on "Woman and the Ballot In
Colorado," was the chief speaker, but he
was not the first to express himself. Mrs.
H. J. Klrschsteln had the first opportunity,
as she led the meeting in the singing of
the opening hymn and made this a chance
to declare that she was not a suffragist,
though Indeed she was open to conviction.
Before taking up the subject of the west
ern woman and her vote, Dr. Aylesworth
gave a few pictures of the recent strike of
the shirtwaist girls of New York. In these
pictures he paid tribute to Mrs. O. H. P.
Belmont, whose support was instrumental
In bringing victory to the strikers, and also
to Miss Anna Morgan, who encouraged the
strikers to stand out for the last conces
sion, recognition of their union. He em
phasized the glimpse this strike offered of
the splendid way In which the young
women of weath exemplified In their as
sistance to the girl tollers the true mean
ing of democracy.
It Is planned to have Dr. Aylesworth ad
dress other meetings In Omaha this week,
but aside from his address before the Cen
tral Labor union Friday evening definite
arrangements have not yet been made.
Mrs. I. S. Leavltt. vice president of the
Omaha Woman's Christian Temperance
union, introduced Dr. Aylesworth.
STOOKEY'RETURNS FROM EAST
President of IleUevue aays He Finds
Eastern People Look with
Favor on this Section.
"The east feels right toward Bellevue
college and Omaha as the seat of a great
western Institution of learning," declared
President Stookey on his return from a
Journey to the eastern states. "I was as
sured time and again of the confidence that
the east feels In the country which centers
about our western metropolis. They have,
too, an. appreciation of the great oppor
tunity for the college in this field and are
willing to co-operate in helping the devel
opment of the school.
"But at the same time I feci most sin
cerely," said Dr. Stookey, "that the local
Interest and initiative will be the measure
of such co-operation and practical help."
Dr. Stookey'a Journey was not without
material fruits, either.
"The trustees were happy to receive a
substantial addition to the current funds
of the college," he added, "although this
Is not the time of year to canvass for

May Festival al the UrnndeN.
The first concert of the Omsha Mar
Music Festival of 1310 was given last nleht
at the Brnndels theater. It was practically
the curtain raiser of the festival, as the
Mil ncapolls symphony orchestra and Mr.
Obtrhoffer will not miike their bow until
As a curtnln raiser and without the or
clurtra, It offered a very Interesting pro
gram of choral und solo numbers.
The chorus, consisting of between seventy
and elshty voices, gave a good account
of Itself and showed plainly the hard work
which the members had done under the
direction of Mr. J. II. Slmms. who made
his first appearance as conductor of the
society. Incidentally, the sopranos and con
tialtos added much to the goneral appear
ance by the red rose and green leafed stem
carelessly laid ngalnst the whlth back
ground of each gown.
In the "Hymn to Music," a most ap
propriate opening number, a choral odu.
with music by the late lamented Dudloy
Buck, the chorus sang with firmness and
precision, obeyed cnrcfully the bnton of
Mr. Slmmr, who left nothing unsure, and
save a very welcome presentation of the
music. This was also true In tho "Hunting
fong" of Mendelssohn, and In the "Land
sighting." by Grirg, Mr. lUverstock offer
ing a nice bit of singing in the barltono
solo Incidental to the Inst named number.
In each number there seemed to be a very
well balanced choral effect, even where the
parts divided. Mr. Himms tecelved a huge
bunch of roses and he Is to be congratu
lated on this concert, which Is surely only
a foretaste of the big work, "King Olaf."
Mr. Czerwonky was applauded to the
echo over and over again and responded
to encores after playing groups of violin
solos, inclining very decidedly to "sweet
ness long-drawn-put," but pcrchnnco our
young genius hath fallen In love since his
lust visit here. But one can forgive the
"sentimental" In consideration of other
things that ha did with breadth and skill.
Madame Langondorff did not come up to
expectations. It Is a mistake to herald
"second Schumann-Heinks" unless one
really has them. Madame Langendorff has
a splendid voice, which she uses well In
the lower and middlo parts, and in the
upper portion when she sings very softly,
but only then. It is a pity, because Madame
Langendorff has an appealing, a very ap
pealing manner, and sho is full of tem
perament. The best work she did was In
the ''Cry of Raohel," wherein sho did some
remarkable dramatic work, but not beauti
