Aged Indian Woman Gratified that
Logan Fontenelle Wat Remem
bered in Naming Edifice.
Almost blind, unable to see tbe
magnificent Fontenelle hotel in
which she dined with her people last
night, Mrs. William Tyndall, daugh
ter of Logan Fontenelle, former
chief of the Omaha Indians, tottered
to her aged feet last night and spok
to the fifty Indians and twenty-five
whites of Decatur who held a ban
quet in honor of the great chief
Fontenelle. The aged daughter of
the martyr chief, whose name the ho
tel bears, spoke in her native Omahu
Without lifting the lits from hr sinlit
Ues eyes, she thanked tbe people who
had built ,thci hotel and who had been so
thoughtful and considerate as to name
It In honor" of her dead father, whom
they had never seen.
Ulad Children tnn Enjoy.
"I am almost blind," aba laid, acrord
ini; to t tip Interpreter, "and 1 cannot see
this great iiilldlng whic h the whit peo
ple have built in honor of my father,
lint I am happy that my rhlUHvu . and
grondi'nlldreri are here, and the knowl
age that they are seeing this treat
structure and enjoying it la as good 'to
me as though I saw it myself. I am
thankful to the people for thinking of
iny rather when numing this hotel, it
is especially pleasing to think that those
who never knew, him, who never saw
him and .ho in rto way came in con
tact with him should still honor him in
this way." Sj
M pet let h Birthday of 4 btrf.
A littlo group or bunlness men of De
catur gave the banquet. . John K. t'lliott,
i;. A. Hanson, Axel Johnson and a nuni
ler of others headed the enterprise. Mr.
HUlott first began making the arrange
nxnts for this banquet with the late W.
Tt. Burbank shortly before Manager Uur
tank died. Yesterday the Indians, prin
cipally direct descendants and reUtlvea
of Logan Fontenelle, were brought to
Omaha in the automobiles of a number
of the Decatur business men for the oc
casion. It waa the celebration of the
ninetieth birthiuy of Chief Logan Fonte
r.elle, who was killed near Bellevue while
defending a party of women and children
from an attack of Sioux warriors.
White Horse Gives Advice.
Another speaker who talked in the
Omaha tongue was Chief W hite Horse, a
descendant of the ancient chief Black-'
bird. White Horse has passed the four,
score mark in yearn. He has discarded
the blanket, however, and In bla talk
told Jils people to live, the ways of the
white mbn, to strive to learn the wa.-a
of the white man and adapt themselves
to them. He advised them to hold their
lands and not let them slip carelessly
from their grasp, but to make their liv
ings by working the lands. .
E. A. Hanson of Decatur was toast
master. T. R. Sloan, attorney, new prac
ticing In Washington, D. C, reviewed the
history of the Omaha tribe, and praised
them as a highly intelligent people. He
spoke of them a being a highly moral
tribe of Indians and a tribe with whom
the whites had no trouble even though
the' overland trail passed through their
territory in the early days. Mary Mit
chell. T. R. Ashley, Mrs. Harriet Mac
Murphy and Mrs. Thomaa MeCauley were
other speakers.
Two Comrades Me4. .
Thomas MeCauley la a full-blood In
dian. He is a veteran of the civil war.
having fought In Company D of the First
Nebraska cavalry. Jonathan Edwards of
Omaha among other visitors strolled Into
the hotel during the evening to hear the
Indians. He learned that McOauley was
present. He 1 got the old brave out In
the lobby and there the "two renewed
acquaintances, for they had been com
rades through the civil war and had not
seen es another since forty-nine years
ago, when they were discharged from the
srmy. There was no more banquet for
them. They sat in the lobby and talked
nf long marches and battles, related
stories of army life, and mutually re
called many a funny Incident with a'
hearty slap of one another's shoulders.
Mrs. Tyndall was the only direct1 de
scendant of Logan Fontenelle in the first
degree present at the banquet Her
three daughters and a son were present,
however. They are Theresa Milton,
Amelia Lovejoy, Madeline Sherman and
Christopher Tyndall. Besides these and
their own smaller children, there were
many relatives of the Fontenelle fam'ly,
such as descendants of the brothers and
sisters of I,ogan Fontenelle.
Over half the Indian women' at the
banquet wore a dark tattoo mark on"
their forehead. This, among the Oma
bss, Is a badge of royalty, signifying
that the bearer is a direct descendant of
a chief.

"While the banquet was being held, Don
ald B. AJlan. son of J. T. Allan, who
ran the old Herndon house in Omaha In
the early days, showed to Manager Bur

Miss Pima's Recital.
Mlta Kutli Flynn, one of Omaha'a
younger pianists was heard in an en
joyable recital last evening at the First
Christian church. Miss Flynn baa musical
talent, and has spent much time In con
scientious study. She haa a great deal
of velocity, and sings her melody with a
clear round tone, and Hays with con
siderable spirit and marked musical
The program showed care In its selec
tion and arrangement. A concerto in G
minor by Ignax Moscheles, came first, the
orchestral parts plsyed by Mr. Landsberg
on the second piano. This la an essen
tially planiatlc composition, with an ex
hilarating allegro moderate, sa beauti
fully tender adagio which moves easily
and Interestingly into the allegro agitato
with which it closes. The players brought
its many beauties into clear relief, in a
most satisfactory Interpretation. The
variations brillants "Eeossatsses" by
Chopin and the two Max: Do we 11 numbers
gave Miss Flynn opportunity for sonic
excellent tonal work and musical effects;
"The March Wind," Mendelssohn, "Spin
ning Song" and "Aeolus" by Oernshetra
especially called into play fluency, with
which she is ao ' ably equipped. The
"Japanese Study" by Poldint was one
of the most attractive numbers, having
a strong national flovor from the first
to the very last note.
The program closed with an arrange
ment by Roff of the "Vaise-Jullette" by
Gounod, in which the beautiful familiar
melody is so elaborated by difficult and
showy ornaments as to tax the endurance
of the most technically efficient and
which were presented clearly and bril
liantly. MUa Flynn was the recipient
of many beautiful bouquets of flowers,
and responded at the close to an Insistent
encore with Nevin's "Rosary."
Mr. Frank Mwh assisted with a violin
solo In which he was accompanied by
Iiss Grace Slabaugh. This was a bril
liant Paganlnl number, "Danse des
Bordereau," which was followed by a
most effective encore. Mr. Mart! also
was presented with flowers.
There was a large and resiwnalve audi
ence present, who were cordial la their
appreciation and applause.

Builders Unable to
Make Enough Ships
(Correspondence of the Associated Press.)
CHRItiTIAXIA. April 10 Norwegian
shipbuilders can scarcely keep pace with
the demand for vessels. The shipowners
find the war so advantageous to their
trade that. In need of more vessels, they
are turning to obsolete craft. They are
taking old whalers and other vessels that
had been marked for the grave, fitting
them with gasoline engines and screws
and pressing them Into service. The lo
cal ahtpyarda were sever ao busy as now.
In tonnage per capita, Norway's mer
cantile marine is tbe largest to the world.
It has (7 tons for each 1,000 Inhabitants,
as against 20 In Great Britain. The
wrecks of Norwegian ships during the
laat year do not greatly exceed normal,
although a third of them were caused by
mines and torpedoem
When the war ends Norwegian ship
owners expect to put out a new lot of
Atlantic and Pacific freighters and com
pete serioulsy for the trade then to be
