This was the sight exhibited to
those who were present at the first

chorus for the Omaha Saengerfest,
which was held in the Auditorium
Saturday morning. A number of

river navigation enterprise.
Th Omaha delegates say the meeting

f 11 the upper Mississippi river states. The
working committee Is to report to th
general association at the next meeting

possibilities that are in store for it if

McNeill testified tt.at h hid found his

the separation was due to the efforts of
her parents, whom he is suing cn the
ground of aileped alienation of her affeo
tlo'is. Mr. and Mrs. McNeill were living
in South Omaha at the time.
A letter written by McNeill to Mayor
Hoctor, In which th relations between
the latter and the husband and wife were
referred to, was Introduced In evident

friendship with the "big fellow" and of
the fact that they had office together,
and had helped the latter in his political
But, the letter continued, the "llttlo
fellow" married, and so great was his
confidence in his greater friend that he
told him of difficulties which had arisen
between himself and his wife. . Tl "big
fellow," said the missive, cam to be in
the "little fellow's" home and after he
begun taking meals there wanted to pay
for them. The money, being refused,
then was given to the baby and was used
to buy articles for the home, it recited.
Then there came a time, sstd the letter,

Another letter was Introduced by th
defense in which McNeill told bl wife
that he believed It wss best that they
should part for at least one year.
