When Mr. Shakespeare . Comes to Town
Fred A. Nash, grnrral western agent of
th Milwaukee ral, returned from Chi
cago yesterday, wliere ha went for a
wnfmnce with President KarUng and
elher cumiany official". When shown the
Item printed In The Hoe Thursdny to the
effect that the Milwaukee rnad Is tail
ing steps to serure Innd from Fourteenth
street cast, and from Howard etreet south
for terminals for frrlKht traffic, and
upon which around the company will
erect a mammoth freight house, costing

"The report ia a Mule premature. Far
ther than thlit I have nothing to say
about tha Milwaukee terminals at this
time. However, I will say that there are
Home big moves contemplated, on the
I all road checker board thin time, and
' 1ft the financial hurlxon clears away
I within the next ninety days, as It proni-
I sea to, I would not be surprised to see
: the game played."
At the time when the Milwaukee road
'; completed the details for Its Puget sound
i extension, by which It reached the Pacific
coast In a record breaking time In rail
' road building, the work waa so quietly
dan that even the most watchful of the
'competitors knew nothing of the move
ment until the lines had been established
and the grading contracts, or many of
I them, let.
Terminals In Omaha.
i While It la not generally known. It la
a tact that at the time when the Puget
hound road was decided upon,. It was also
decided to build 300 miles of road In Ne
braska. Beside) this, immense freight
terminal were contemplated In Omaha,
the oust to be not far from 11,000,000. It
waa the intention that thin extension of
the Milwaukee should start from Omaha
and run northwest, tapping the Chamber
lain and llapld City line at a point In
Kouth Dakota, and then going on to the
northwest, where a Junction wee to be
formed with the coavt line. With this ex
tension completed. It was the purpose of
the company to make the Omaha-Chtcago
line the main portion of the Irnnscontl.
nental route, the through train passing
through the Omaha gateway.
About this time stringency In the money
market et In end about the aame ttme
there waa aome legislation adverse to
railroad operation enacted In some of
the weetern state. Aa a result, notwith
standing the fart that the money had
been aet aalde for the building of the line
out of Omaha, for the purrhaie of ter
minals her arid the erection of a great
freight honse, equally in every respect
to any in the city, the deal; was called
off. . V- J'-,
Work had progressed on the 1 Piit
Hound line to auoh an extent that. It waa
pushed through to completion.
Omaha Mae Not Absseaaei, -
However, the Omaha line waa not abati
duned. The officer of the road realise
the Importance of a line from Omaha Into
the northwest and kept It In view. They
reallied the Immense country that It
would develop and the Immense ouantl
tlcs of freight iba It would haul Into
and out of It. Th offlcala also reallied
that with-tha line out frm Omabu. build,
ing across Nebraska.' and fcouth Dakota,
they would open a fljld, that would be
their own,' a other road for a great
portion of th distance between the two
terminal point would be o far away
that It would be year before there would
be any competition.
Now, with ; th money market easier
and large sums of it seeking Investment,
and with indication that the era of rad
ical railroad legislation 1 at an end, and
that th courta are Inclined to look upon
tallroad in much the same line as other
property owner, aome of the companies
are lining up for a period of building ac
tivity, commencing next spring.
It develops that the Milwaukee Is
among th first of the western road to
jump Into th breach and tak advautag
of th changed condition that have come
about within th last few weeka. Conse
quently. It I now taking th preliminary
step, not only to acquire freight ter

Itelnrarnatlon f Itomeo, Hamlet,
Ophelia, Juliet and the tamed shrew for
the past week have been stalking the
streets, surging through the shops, riding

librarians can testify, the presence of a
troupe of actors, staging a repertoire of
Shakespearean plays In a city always
creates a demand for the playwright's
goods that usually In not satisfied until
they long since have left town. The
phraseology flows oyer the footlights and

with th parlance nf the street.

"Front. Show this gentleman to 87."
That has been the clerk's direction to
the bellhop since Noah opened Hotel Ark
Not so now In Omaha. It's:
"Hither, bellboy and to this gentleman
be as cicerone. llrect him hence to 87
and all his luggage store within his room.
Homo of those persona who are such
profound students of Phakespeare that
they believe Hamlet and King tear were
written by Bacon were seen to stop the
other day In front of a saloon. They
were filled with Shakespeare and beer.
They had met in consultation and diag
nosed their respective cases as pyrosis
of the throat. The philanthropist of the
lot was first to speak. IHd he say In
vulgar modern Kngllth, "Fellows, come
and have one on me?" No. Shakespeare
is In Omaha.
Thus spake lie: "Oh heat, dry up my
brains, but care talcs you that this, my
throat, unscorched and free shall go.
List, gentlemen, let's to this varnished
bar and there solace and content seek tn
what sweet brew shall flow from HA-m
seltxer or a beer, mayhap a wine of red.
Come, let's to the bar."
And as they were swallowed up in the
swinging doors a witness said it was so
realttlc he thought he saw written on
thosi doors: "Exeunt all. Curtain."
The question often has arisen as to how
Shakeekearean syntax and expressions be
es me so universal, but as the recent epi
demic In Omaha has shown, once It gets
a start, it Is as mercurial as the odors
from th packing houses and us con
tagious as measles. x
Austin Webb of the Woodward Stock
company tells this story, which demon
strates how such an epidemic may spring
from an innocent origin:
"I once rehearsed, 'As Vcu Like It'
In a garden that was overlooked by a
building operation, he bays. "As the
actors postured and chanted the bard's
beautiful lines, bricklayers above us laid
bricks, carpenters pinned boards and
masons chipped stones.
"One afternoon during a silent pause
in our rehearsal, we heard a voice from
the building operation say gravely: 'I
prythee, malapert, pass me yonder
And so It originates lit numerous ways,
thrives like weeds on a cerner lot for a
while and finally wilts to stay wilted,
however, only until some more elocution
ists com along with Shakespeare fertilizer.

sued by Judge Troup yesterday morning
against the Board of County Commla
sloners. ellarlng on th application for a
temporary Injunction win be given on
December 20. Th applicants for the in
junction are Km 1 1 Hansen and .Joaeph
Hlnkule, who set forth the argument that
there Is no good reason why the machines
should be. sold or their us abandoned. .
Hanson and Slnkule ar straw plain
tiffs, but Carl Ii. Herring, th attorney
who I employed to mak the fight
against doing away with the voting ma
chines, refuse to say anything about
them and to designate th real Interests
behind th move.
The restraining order will remain In
effect until Judge Troup ha ruled on th
pplleatton for a temporary injunction.
If th temporary Injunction la granted It
will remain In effect pending hearing on

have been uaed under a state law; that
the sale of the thirty-eight machines
owned by the county will reduce the total
number of machines to forty-nine, which
will not be enough to hold an election;
that the county board has ordered the
ale of the county machine and will
ell them unless restrained. The petition
further asserts that though the board
voted to abandon the machine because
they are -Inaccurate and .unreliable they
really are not so. It say the action was
Uken for political reasons, certain un
named politicians .'being responsible for
the action. It alleges that while there
were many election content before th
machine were adopted there have been
none since then. I
Hlnce the abandonment of the machine
and their sale was favored by leading men
of both parties, It I consldsred unlikely
that either party organisation Is behind
th injunction suit and Herring may
have been employed by the Empire Vot
ing Machine company of New . York,
which makes and sell them. Th aban
donment of th macblsas for, tha reasons
given by the county board is not a good
advertisement for the machines.
County Commissioner Pickard moved

Lynch passed, not being fully advlaed in
the matter, and Commissioner Elsasser
voted no on th ground that th county
