Ames Gets a Rest
Arnea. Ia.. Oct. 25. fSDeciaU The
crippled Ames eleven pulled away
from Columbia in good bodily shape,
considering the toughness of the 0-to-6
game. Packer was thrown out of
the game for a few minutes, but he
finished the game, mostly because it
was a case of have-to.
With the game so stubbornly
fought, and a weakness on the end
of the line where Right End Jones
should have been, the coaches simply
could not pull Packer out. The big
.team-mate of Jones, who was hurt
in the Kansas game, was not badly
damaged, for it was announced that
he Will be ready to go back on the
first string for the game with the
Cornhuskers November 4.
The team gets a good long rest of
a couple of weeks before taking on
the Cornhuskers.- The Cyclones have
this big advantage over the Cornhusk
ers. The Nebraskans have a heavy
schedule, . which gives them a big
game this week, when Ames will be

HERE THIS WEEK
; f )
Creighton Meets Denver and
Central High Tangles With
York High Saturday.
TWO COMBATS FOR FRIDAY
Four foot ball games will occupy
the boards in Omaha Friday and Sat
urday, so gridiron followers should
hot want for entertainment at the
end of the week.
On Friday, Omaha university
clashes with. Kearney and the High
School of Commerce will collide with
Creighton High school at Creighton
field. On Saturday, Creighton uni
versity tangles with Denver univer
sity at Creighton field, and Central
.High will battle with York High at
Rourke park.. The other two local
schools play out of the city, Bellevue
plays at Wayne, Friday, and South
High goes to Nebraska City on Sat
urday. The Creighton-Denver game, of
course, is the big attraction. The pro
hibitionists are coming to Omaha
with a strong lineup and are confi
dent of scoring a victory. The Blue
and White warriors, however, are
just as confident of success. .At all
events, the fray should be one to
make the foot ball fan's blood tingle.
Central High promises to be a long
favorite over York and the dope
reads for a comparatively easy vic
tory for Coach Mulligan's troupe,
Kearney has the edge on Omaha uni
versity and is expected to win more
or less handily. .
The Creighton High-High School
of Commerce event, which will be
played Friday at Creighton field,
promises something stirring. While
these two schools are not champion
ship squads, they are believed to be
pretty well evenly matched and a
corking conflict is anticipated.
Visit to Glacier
Great Falls, Mont., Oct. 25. (Spe

Stop at Glacier National park, the Ne
braska foot ball special Tuesday made
its last sightseeing halt on its home

part of the park. This Morning some
of the party went boat riding on Lake
McDonald, while others went tramp
ing, and still others fished. The
team had a five-mile signal practice,
running through their plays all the
way to the lake and back. Another
stop was made at the eastern en
trance to the park and the Glacier
hotel was visited. Wednesday stops
will be made at Billings and Sheridan,
where the team will work out.

HOMER SCORES IN
Large Audience Gives Its Most
Enthusiastic Approval to
ORCHESTRA WINS A HOME
By HENRIETTA M. REES.
"II Trovatore," by Giuseppi Verdi,
with all its beauty of familiar melo
dies, with all its richness of harmony,
with its many dramatic scenes and
magnificent climaxes, was presented
at the Auditorium for the second and
closing engagement of the Ellis Opera
company Tuesday evening.
The audience, while not so large as
that which greeted "Carmen" Monday
evening, was of a proportion to fill the
Auditorium except for a few balcony
seats, and was even more enthusiastic
than that of the preceding night.'
Congratulate the Committee.
' The committee of the Retailers' as
sociation having in charge the work
of arranging the course has covered
itself with glory in its present attempt
and is receiving hearty congratula
tions from all because of the excel
lence of the entertainment provided.
That so responsible a body of citizens
and business men is behind the gen
eral movement to provide high-class
music for the public in Omaha is of
immense assistance to the cause of
the art in general, and this fact is
fully appreciated bv those who are de
voted to music in any way. Other
numbers in the course are being
eagerly awaited. ,
Although "II Trovatore" is one of
the best known and most popular of
all grand operas, and unquestionably
one of the greatest of all of the Ital
ian school, it has not been presented
in Omaha for several years, and never
upon quite so generous a scale.
Triumph for Homer.
The performance of last evening
was remarkable for one outstanding
figure, and the name of "II Trovatore"
in the future in Omaha will always
be linked with the overwhelming
triumph of Louise Homer as Azu
cena. He voice is a contralto of
great beauty and power, and she
uses it with a skill to delight the
most exacting and with an art to
ravish the most aesthetic. Over and
above this, she is a consummate
actress, and the character of Azucena
as she portrayed it, was one of the
most magnificent pieces of interpre
tation it has been the writer's good
fortune to witness. In the first scene
of Act II, while relating to Manrico
the dramatic story of her mother's
death, at the stake, and how in frenzy
she had .thrown her own babe (nto
the flames, she presented the music
with a dramatic fire and histrionic
realism that fairly swept the audi
ence off its feet. In the entire act
she was all that could be desired
and was called and recalled before
the curtain as many as eight or nine
Others In the Cast.
Marie Rappold as Leonora sang
the part with sincerity and great
beauty of tone. Her voice is unus
ually sweet, and of great power, and
was displayed effectively.
Morgan Kingston made an ac
ceptable "Manrico." He is possessor
of a rarely beautiful voice, essentially
tenor, yet of immense power and
richness of quality. Although not as
yet a great actor, he sang the many
taxing numbers which fell to the
part of the troubadour with splen
did effect, and was cordially re
ceived. Giovanni Polese was heard to ex
cellent advantage as the Count di
Luna, by his singing and acting, mak
ing much out of a rather ungrateful
part. Leon Rothier, as Fernando, de
served especial mention. He sang
the opening aria with such life and
vocal ability as to win him a curtain
call all his own, and his part in the
various ensembles was highly satis
factory. The other, parts were also
Chorus' Work is Great.
Of the concerted numbers, of
course, the great prison scene stands
out pre-eminent. Here the voices of
Leonora and Manrice were most
artistically contrasted and blended,
while the chorus in the distance added
yet another effective contrast to this
intense scene. In the "Anvil Chorus"
in act two the chorus did some ex
The-dramatic intensity of the last
act, with its exquisite duet for Man
rico and Azucena, first with its weight
of woe, and then with the beauty of
the well known "Back to Our Moun
tains," to later develop into the trio
with Leonora, a series of wonderful
beauty and exquisite pathos was done
with such artistry as to develop its
every charm and hold its listeners in
enraptured suspense to the end.
Orchestra Wins Friends.
The orchestra, itself a most artistic
body, upheld its high standard of per
formance established last night, and
came into its own with the three in
terpolated solos, "Overture from
Tannhauser," Wagner; "Barcarolle'
from "Tales of Hoffman," Offenbach,

Maestro Campanini, as always, domi
nated the situation and was most
gracious in his acknowledgment of re
peated applause. Curtain calls were
numerous after each act, and there
was hardy a single number of the
entire opera that did not win its
round of steady hearty applause from
an appreciative audience.
Baggageman Takes His Tour.
One of the most astonishing effects
of the evening was afforded by the
ambitious baggageman, who furnished
a trunk obligate for the impressive
prison scene. The exquisite music of
this most interesting part of the opera
was listened to by those on the north
side of the Auditorium with such
pleasurable interest as was possible
under the circumstances of being com
pelled to endure the rumble and
bumping of heavy trunks undergoing
transfer to the wagons. This discon
certing circumstance annoyed singers,
conductor and all, but it is hoped
Maestro Campanini will understand it
is not an Omaha practice to thus dis
turb musical effects so impressive as
those interfered with by the energetic
baggageman last night.
South High to
City on Friday
Coach Patton's South High foot
ball team will go' to Nebraska .City
Friday morning to play one, of its
hardest games the same afternoon'
with the school team of that town.
For three years past the local teams
have won over Nebraska City teams
in both foot ball and basket ball. A
rivalry as ancient as the schools
themselves has existed,
Patton has developed a powerful
offense in shifting Dworak from
fullback to halfback. For three years
this worthy plugged the line and did
admirably. In shifting Nestor, re
cruited quarter of last year, from the
general's position to Dworak's old
place he has added speed where
weight once existed. Emigh, at the
other half, has been giving a good
account of himself, while Etter. at
full, a new man, is considered a find.
Corr, star end, and Rugie, big
tackle, are showing up well in scrim
mage. . There is a chance that O'Con
nor, freshman tackle, will be up in his
studies and back on the line again
before the game Friday. O'Connor
is proving himself one of the best
tackles in the history of the school.
He has three years ahead of him.

Republican Candidate Resents
Attempt to Cast Suspicion
Upon His Loyalty.
KENNEDY ALSO SPEAKS
Fremont, Neb., Oct. 25. (Special.)
To an almost affectionate audience
of old friends, both republican and
democratic, who gathered at the head
quarters of the Hughes-Fairbanks
club here last night, Williim P. War
ner, republican candidate for congress
from the Third district, and John L.
Kennedy, republican candidate for
United States senator, delivered the
last of their speeches in the joint
campaign of the Third district, which
has been going on for the last ten
days in spite of rain, snow and muddy
roads. The republican headquarters
were gayly decorated in bunting of
stars and stripes and a profusion of
flags. The Fremont band played.
Standing out in relief against a back
ground of Old Glory Mr. Warner,
amid cheers which almost drowned
out his words, shamed the Columbus
Telegram and its democratic editor,
Edgar Howard, for seeking jto cast
a suspicion as to his loyalty to the
United States upon him because his
brother happened to be a resident
of Canada -and a member of the
Canadian army. Many citizens of
German extraction were present and
assured Mr. Warner publicly of their
indignation that an attempt should
be made to influence, their vote by
such political claptrap. It was plain
to see that Mr. Warner was among
friends and his earnest and unaffected
manner as he set forth his claims to
the election as congressman drew
much favorable comment.
C. E. Abbott Presides.
C. E. Abbott, city attorney of Fre
mont, acted as chairman of the meet
ing, and following Mr. Warner's
speech he introduced John L. Ken
nedy, who for more than an hour
and a half stirred his audience with
his patriotic utterances, his speech
being interspersed with humorous
bits which caused frequent ripples of
merriment to run over the crowd. The
crowd was for Kennedy from the
start and at times the applatrse and
cheering became a positive uproar.
The crowd was a mixture of all na
tionalities and both republican and
democratic, and all gathered about
Mr. Kennedy after he had finished
and expressed their pleasure at hear
ing him so fairly discuss the ques
tions before the voters, and so care
ful of the requirements of strict neu
trality, discuss the problems growing
out of -the world war. Numerous
sincere assurances of support Were
given to Mr. Kennedy.
The meeting was under the aus
pices of the Hughes-Fairbanks club
and the last in which Mr. Kennedy
and Mr. Warner will hold together
this campaign. Mr. Kennedy will
return to Omaha today to begin his
campaign there and Mr. Warner will
continue his campaign here in the
Meeting at Schuyler.
This morning a meeting was held
at Schuyler in the Bohemian hall.
George W. Wertz presided. In the
audience was Otto Zuelow, who was
Mr. Warner's rival in the primary
campaign, and he expressed himself
very generously in support of Mr.
Warner. Here Mr. Kennedy met his
young friend, W. B. Sadilek, who
joined with Mr. Zuelow in offering
their complete support to the candi-

dates. Mr. Sadilek was formerly on
the foot hall squad at the University
of Nebraska. Although Schuyler and
Colfax county are considered normal
ly democratic, it is generally admit
ted that Mr. Kennedy and Mr. War
ner will received a large support from
the democrats there. This fact, how
ever, did not deter them from sup
porting the entire state and national
republican ticket in their speeches.
The heavy rains today made it im
possible for the speakers to reach
Howells, Dodge, Snyder and Hooper
in time to speak as scheduled. Auto

was held at the court house Monday
evening. R. W. Devoe, republican
candidate for attorney general; H. P.
Shumway, republican , candidate for
lieutenant governor, and other prom
inent republicans were present and
made addresses. Devoe's speech made
a great hit and his reference to
Hughes, Kenedy and Warner was
loudly applauded. Republican senti
ment in this county is growing rapid
ly, and a sweeping victory for the en
tire ticket is anticipated.
