Council Urges Une
Scene Be Removed
from Big Picture
Upon request of John Grant Pegs, Rev.
G. O. Logan and Rev. W. T. Osborne,
negro citizens, the city council voted to
urge the management of Brandela thea
ter to eliminate from "The Birth of a
Nation" the scene wherein the negro ser
vant, "Gus," pursues Flora Cameron to
her death at the bottom of a cliff.
The action of the officials became of
regard In the form of a resolution of
fered by Commissioner Jaraine who ex
plained he witnessed these motion pic
tures and his view of the scene in ques
tion coincided with, those of photestanta.
"I think there might be no objection
to the first part of the scene, showing
the girl running away from the spring
when she sees the negro, but I believe
the subsequent chaee and death could be
eliminated, without detracting from the
general excellence of the pictures,"
stated Commissioner Jardine.
Mr. Pegg said he visited the theater
and observed expressions of aroused feel
ings during the presentation of this ob
jectionable scene. He added that thla
particular scene had been eliminated In
most cities where "The Birth of a Na
tion" had been presented.
The mayor explained there is no ordi
nance I" force at this time covering a
situation of this character. An ordinance
Is pending.
Says Everything Posiibls it Being-
Done to Prevent Spread of
Health Commissioner Connell con
tends there is no foundation to state
ments which have been made that
Information regarding diphtheria
and scarlet fever cases In Central
Park, and Monmouth Park districts
have been neglected by his office.
He asks for specific Information on
the subject
Inspector Jensen, he says, has
been detailed to watch the north
west part of the city and arrest any
persons breaking quarantine.
Dr. Connell states that during the last
two weeks only three eases of scarlet
fever have been reported to his office
and no cases of positive diphtheria re
ported during the same period from the
districts mentioned.
Dr. Connell Makes Statement.
The health commissioner dictated this
public statement:
' The charge is unjust and uncalled for
and Is wholly without facts. It Is true
there were some cases of scarlet fever
In the northwest part of the city and
through my endeavors the Board of Edu
cation engaged two nurses who form a
nucleus for larger activities along this
line. These nurses discovered a case of
scarlet fever at Central Park school and
another at Lothrop school a few weeks
ago. It Is reasonable to assume that those
casos spread more or less contagion.
"As for conditions at Central Park dis
trict, I want to state here has not been
an Instance of a contagious disease or
even suspected case reported to this of
fice that has not been attended to within
a fow hours by myvlf or assistant. If
anybody has evidence to the contrary I
want to hear from that person.
Ilea Man to Make Roindi.
"t presume there are some cases now
under quarantine and In some Instanoes
the quarantine regulations may not have
been obeyed strictly. I have a man who
goes the rounds, but I cannot place a
policeman at every house under quaran
tine. "I have been criticised because I have
Insisted upon proper observance of quar
antine and vaccination regulations, but
this Is the first time I have been oen
sured for falling to be striot In tho en
forcement of rules and regulations to
prevent spread of contagious diseases."
U 5. Commerce Expert Urges
Ncbraskans to Study Spanish
"Learn more Fpenlsh, study Spanish,
put courses of Spanish tn your schools."
that Is the advice given Nebraska and
Omaha, by Stanley H. Rose, special
stent of the Buerau of Foreign and Do
meetlo Commerce, who arrived in Omaha
'Herman and French are all right In
the schools for educational and cultural
purposes; but get at It and learn the
commercial languages.
"Here we are with twenty republics
south of us In this hemisphere. Klgh
teen of theni speak Spanish. One speaks
Portugese, and the republic of Haytt
speaks French. Why should we then not
learn Spanish, next to Bngllsh?
"For the very reason that we have neg
lected the study of Spanish we are not
at all ready to build up the trade with
South America that we should. We
haven't nearly men enough to go Into
South America and speak the language
well enough to carry on commerce on
any large scale."
Mr. Rose says while South America Is
a good field that American manufac
turers should look to for an outlet for
their goods. It Is In his opinion not so
good for Immediate market as New Zea
land, Australia and China. "South Amer
ica will be very good, too, for the future,
but I believe the best Immediate pros
pect now Is China, Australia and New
Zealand," he said. "South America is
not so well fixed financially just now as
to be able to do as much buying as we
should like."
Mr. Rose came to Omaha from Lincoln,
where he has just been attending the
meeting of the Nebraska Manufacturers'
association. He Is on a junket now,
traveling over a large part of the United
States, meeting manufacturers personally
and giving them Information gathered by
the government of interest to their par
ticular line of manufacture. He has just
been visiting manufacturers tn New York,
Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia and
other states, and Is now on his return
trip to Washington, after which he starts
immediately for a long trip throughout
the southern states.
He Is to speak Friday noon to the
Omaha Manufacturers' association at a
meeting at the Commercial club rooms.
He ts meeting manufacturers personally
and talking over their business with
them. He has with him a trunk full of
Information regarding markets of the
world for goods of various lines. He has

Widow Cannot Get
Mother's Pension
The petition of Mrs. Louise Saco and
her three small children, left destitute
since Joe Saco, the husband and father,
was called to the colors by Italy, for a
pension for their support, was rejected
by District Judge Leslie On the ground
that they are not cltlsens of the United
Statu. ,
The Italian government will be asked
by J. M. Leidy, administrator of county
charities, to support the family. The
county has been providing for the mother
and children through the ordinary chan
nels of relief and will continue to do so
until other aid Is secured.

Mr. Anna waa areatlv Interested In what
little haa thus far been done toward es
tablishing river navigation on a section
of the Missouri river out of Omaha. He
said, too, that Omnha and Nebraska oc
cupy a peculiar position In the matter of
commerce, being so far from the sea
board, "but." he anld, "they have done
wonders In a short time and I see that
this Is a wonderful state and Omaha a
wonderful city with a great future. I
can see It no other way."
Democrats Try to
Agree On Dr. Hall
In an effort to save some state office
for a democrat In the election next fall,
leaders of the party are trying to agree
on Dr. P. L. Hall of Lincoln as a com
promise candidate for governor.
"We don't believe Morehead can make
It again," one leading democrat said,
"and we have about agreed on Dr. Hall"
as a man that could draw the votes from
the various factions of the party."
The movement for Dr. Hall comes
largely from the antl--Bryan faction, al
though Dr. Hall Is a Bryan man and
was a pro-Bryan and pro-Wilson national
committeeman from Nebraska.
Nevertheless so desperate do the demo
crats consider their chances for success
in 1910 that they are ready to agree to
any kind of a compromise that would
ueom to promise a sliver of hope to cling
to in the whirlpool.

aonie Omaha literature from the Bureau
of Publicity and the railroad offices, and
to say that Omaha is a wonderful city.
Street Cars Bump
Each Other on North
Twenty-Fourth St.
Two street cars on Twenty-fourth
street, near Michigan avenue, scraped
as they passed each other, wHh the re
sult that the sides were torn from the
cars and several passengers were slightly
Injured by broken glass.
The condition of the paving of Twenty
fourth street has been a source of an
noyance to the city commissioners as
well as the street railway oompany for
some time. The pavement has been or
dered relald and it Is probably due to the
bad condition of the track that the ac
cident happened.
The conductor of the south-bound car
reported that but one person was hurt
by the broken glass.
Florence Laborer

Thomas Clark, laborer of Florence, was
found dead in a cell at the police station
early Thursday morning by the turnkey.
Clark was arrested Wednesday after
noon on a charge of drunkenness and
begging on the streets. During the even
