president of the State Historical sorlety
Blackbird was a noted warrior Bnd

never broke, faith, so Mr. Webster dc
Clares that Omaha coum find no finer
way In which to rommemorate Its earli
est authentic history. The city's war
veterans are agitating a movement to
place a monument In front of the court
house, and he believes artistic demands
would be satisfied by the niacin ot
two fine works of art there. The sub
Ject has been laid beforo Architect Jbhn
Frederick C. Hlbbard. a sculptor of OhI

was highly pleased with this, and ar

trepid warrior that feared no man and'
shunned no danger. Ho had the spirit
of leadership that would have done credit
to an Alexander when engaged in war
fare with his common enemy, the Sioux;
but he welcomed and always maintained
peaceful relation with, the invading white
race. He encouraged the exchange and
traffic In commodities between the red
men and the white men. as we now ev

command, according f tradition, burled

Miss Adelyn Wood opened the program
with an "Allemande" by D'Albert, fol
lowed by "Etne Llebesnovelle" In three
movements by Wolff. -MUs Wood has
ample technique and plays with clarity
and style, her delicately spun runs in
the Wolff number being especially ef
fective. This novelty to Omaha audiences
was a beautiful thing, each movement

Mrs. Welpton maintained her well de
served reputation for artistic singing in
her shard ot the program, her irjejr fleet!
contralto voice being used most advan
tageously, and her Interpretations being
as always, tru to tho spirit ot the song.
She sang two groups, opening the first
with "Quando a te Weta" from "Faust,"
by Gounod, following with a brilliant
"Mandollnata" that sounded decidedly
Mexican and which was sung with vivac
ity and abandon. A rather unusual "Lul
laby," by Itopartx preceded a "Dance
Song," by Thome, which completely fas
cinated the audience and won as an en
core "Wind Fairies." by Walte. In' her
second group Mrs, Welpton did espe
cially nice- work in "Summer Italn." by
Wllleby, the lovely restful "Oao Tao

"Spring Song." with which she closed
