a decided Increase of the Kuropean visible

Gossip that the Dutch government was

Active foreign demand for lard gave

Kreislcr's Art Eludes Definition of
Those Who Are Thereby Enthralled
Fritg Krelsler, violinist, who will close
the charity concert course In his recital
at the Auditorium Tuesday evening.
March 2S, seems to be the only artist of
our time concerning whom connoisseurs,
professional and lay, are unanimous. Th
public flock to his concert aa they have
never flocked to those of any violinist,
and it seems as If they cannot get
enough of his playing. The critics seem
unable to find words to express their
admiration for the perfection of his art.
Many things have been written, but per
haps, nothing quite hit the nail on the
head aa a paragraph In the review of a
concert he gave In New York, written
by William J. Henderson, for the New
York Bun. Mr. Henderson said, among
other things: '
'But Mr. Krrlsler's technical skill.
which disclose Itself so spontaneously,
apparently so unpremeditated, and which
never obtrudes Itself as an end. la by
no mean the greatest Item of his unsur
passable art. Thoughtful people In the
course of year weary of tempestuous,
temperamental players, who seem to
lack all mental balance and who have
no conception of the trua meaning of
th word "art." To such people nothing
Is more satisfying, more restful, more
Joy-glvlng than Mr. Krelsler's almost Im
peccable taete. He has plenty of tem
perament, but It Is mastered by judg
ment. He Is a truly emotional player,
but his fastidious appreciation prevents
him from disturbing the artistic struc
ture and character of a composition."

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, March 20. (Special
Telegram.) Speaking last upon a
long program of addresses In the
city ' auditorium here on the occa
aion of his fifty-sixth anniversary,
W. J. Bryan tonight departed for a
considerable period from the prohi
bition question and discussed na
tional topics and his relations with
President Wilson, who.4e renomlna-
tlon he declared he favored. There
would be, he said, no other candi
date at the St. Louis convention.
"I am a candidate for delegate-at-large
to that convention," said
Mr. Bryan, "but if any of my friends
who have suddenly become friends
of Woodrow Wilson can serve him
better than myself let them send
some one else to the convention.

"If Woodrow Wilson owes ine anything
he has more than paid It back by giving
himself to the nation as president Instead
of Roosevelt. Friends of Champ Clark
found that I could be counted againat
him. My purpose In Baltimore waa that
I would not do anything that would make
me a party to turn the democratic party
over to Wall street. I believe that by re
pudiating Wall street we saved the dem
ocratic party, and -mad possible a vic
tory in 1912.
"Where would we be today with a man

with Mexico three year ago, and would
be at war with Europe today.
"I have been abundantly rewarded In
supporting Wilson. I have differed with
him' on two points, that we could have
set a better example to Europe by refus
ing to send them the materials of war
far, and that we could have don more

"The saloons of the country are the
lawbreakers of the country and they
want the democrat of thla state to be

going to do It?"
Mr. Bryan was very emphatic in his

In closing he saJd the democratic party

out from a certain source that the wet

Dr. Martin Hardin of Chlcsgo, talking
upon "Preparedness," showed the cost

sary as the belligerent countries of
Europe wou'd not dare take on the United
Word from Alabama.
Judge 8. D. Weakley, chief Justice of
the Alabama supreme court, talked of
prohibition. He said he made enough In
his law business to live on and he fought
the liquor business as a - pastime. Ht
advocated putting none but prohibition
ists In office as the only way to make
prohibition a success. The wet man who
did not drink, he said, - was th worst
kind of a man to elect. The legislature,
must be a prohibition legislature or the
carrying of the amendment would amount
to little. -
The Judge exhibited copies of national
weekly papers showing blank pages wher
the publishers had expunged liquor ad

prohibiting papers carrying liquor adver
