EVET COLORED CHILDREN SINO IMd yon ever hear colored children larlng "Die Wacht am Hhein?" Ringing it with abandon, with gusto and with a care-free swing that ahowed the words were as familiar to them at the words of "America" and "Old Kentucky Home." This was the sight exhibited to those who were present at the first rehearsal of the rrand children's chorus for the Omaha Saengerfest, which was held in the Auditorium Saturday morning. A number of the 2.000 school children partici pating are colored. Enough children were there to half fill th big lower floor when Prof. Theodore Rudolph Reese seated hlmiielf at the piano on the stage and struck the first chord. And when Prof. Ferdinand Stettlnger. director of music In the public school, smote his palms together the Juvenile multitude rose as one boy, or rather as one girl, for nine-tenths were llttlo maids and burst Into the beautiful tune and words of "Alle Voegel Bind Sehon Da, Alle Voegel Alle." Worthr of Ornni.gpn, Why, It would take grown-up choruses a Jong while to reach the degree f perfection which these Juvenile hundreds have reached already and, seemingly, by Instinct. Without a pause at the end of the first selection. Prof. Reese at the piano guided them Into the second, "Homo. Sweet Home'' snd so, through the pro gram they alternated, German and Eng lish. Most ef the children know all the songs by heart. Whether the music of the German com positions is more catchy and lilting and inspiring or whether there Is something In the soft sibilants and thrilling gut turals of the German speech, the fact remains that th children sing the Ger man songs with greater gusto than they do th English ones. Close observation of the colored contingent revealed the par adoxical fact that they sang "Bah Eln Knabeln Roseleln Btehn." with greater Joy, confidence and tunefulness than they did ' 'Way Down Upon th Buwanee Rlbber." All TaVe Part. The battlefields of Buroi seemed a mere mlasmlo dream, a nauseous night mare, as American children of German, Austrian, Italian. Scandinavian, Russian, French, British and African ancestry Joined Joyously In the Inspiring strains of "Die Wacht ant Rheln" and then rolled Joyously and, perhaps, a little more so Into the well krtpwn and especially bo-lovd-of-chlldren, "America." The children's part of .the great Saen gerfest will b the last matinee concert of the big singing meet which will bring OcVmari sinters from 100 Cities to Omaha In July. The child voices will be reinforced by an orobestra of fifty-five pieces. Judging from this rehearral. the first rehearsal and on In which the vocalists were accompanied merely by a piano, the children's chorus of 2.000 voice, with onchestra accompaniment, singing the time-tried and well-loved songs of both American and the fatherland will be an attraction worth going far to hear and sea. ! L i r r- f J Omaha Delegates Return from River Meeting at Dubuque Frank J. Hughes and E. J. McVann have returned from Dubuque, where they were sent as delegates of the Omaha Commercial club to the meeting of the Upper Mississippi River Improvement as sociation conference. Mr. Hughes was appointed as one of th members of a working committee that Is to gather all possible data between now and October on th subject of how much freight there ib In sight that might take advantage of river navigation on the upper Missis sippi and Missouri, and also ss to what capital might be available to go Into a river navigation enterprise. Th Omaha delegates say the meeting wss well attended by representatives of f 11 the upper Mississippi river states. The working committee Is to report to th general association at the next meeting October 13. One of the notable things about the meeting In the minds of the Omaha delegates was the marked Interest taken by St. Louis delegates. They be llv that St Louis has awakened to the possibilities that are in store for it if Mississippi river navigation Is properly developed In th upper reaches of the river. Judge W. H.

Theod (j Beirens HOCTOR'S NAME IN ALIENATION SUIT Mayor of South Omaha Gets Into the Damage Case Brought by McNeill Against Parents of Wife. LETTERS BEFORE THE COURT Thomas Hoctor, mayor of South Omaha, yesterday figured In the evi dence la the $15,000 damage suit brought by George H. McNeill against Mr. and Mrs. Arthur C. Jew ell, parents of his wife, as a friend of Mrs. McNeill, who was once cen sured but later forgiven by her hus band. Mayor Hoctor's name was mentioned In testimony brought out by attorneys for both plaintiff and defendants. McNeill testified tt.at h hid found his wlf and Mayor Hoctor sitting In clos proximity to each other In the tatter's of fice two years ago, but that he had after ward forgiven them.

Bis; and Little Fellows. The letter began "Dear Tom" and re ferred to a certain 'little fellow" who had been a clos friend of a "big fellow" who later became mayor of a city. Th 'little fellow," it said, was proud of his friendship with the "big fellow" and of the fact that they had office together, and had helped the latter in his political campaign. 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, when the "little fellow" reproached his wife for making known to the "big fel low" that money was needed for certain purposes. gome thing rsuse a scar upon friend ship, continued the letter, but old friend ships are best after all. The epistle closed with a poem upon "Friendship" and the expression of a hope that If the "big fellow" should find th "llttl fellow" In a position to do him a favor that be should atk for 1L 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. "Vou accused your wife of being Inti mate with Tom Hoctor and afterward apologised to thsm both, did you not?" Attorney Baker asked McNeill during cross-examination. "Well, I did not consider It was an apology," was the reply. Office, 15th and Harney tta. msnm I.
