Is it because a woman bosses them
that the girl, in Mollie Williams'
burlesque show step with more pep
than any group of dancing damsels
that struck town this season? Form
your answer to fit your philosophy,
but the fact remains that the troupe
of choristers whom Miss Williams
sent through their paces at the Gay
ety theater last night performed with
a vim and dash which other shows
Although it's a girl show in which
the girls wear costumes of beauty
and brevity, the spice of good com
edy is not lacking. Teddy Burns has
an olio about a hotel clerk's experi
ences in which there is many a
laugh. Limber Roscoe Aills enter
tains by his lithe contortions, funny
sayings and queer songs.

ism is enhanced when Mr. Fanning
falls from the top of a dight of steps

I that Miss Williams performs the
Dance L Fnticcnient, a terpsichur

Kva Malvin, Frankie Burns and
Florence Kelly lend their charms
and abilities to make a success of sev
eral little farces. In "Some Sanitar

Aills and Simon Meyers and produce
a rattling good comedy in which there
is much appreciable satire.
Miss Williams herselt offers a
"fashion review," in which clothes
are not the only attractions she dis
plays. She has several specialty
songs which make a hit, including her
ditty about a "Letter Carrier" girl,
whose proficiency in handling the
"males" merits the attention of more
than postoffice authorities.

Gov, Eberhart Favors Omaha Plan
Of Securing the New Industries
Co-Operation of Business Men
Strong Inducement in Secur
ing Factories for City.
BRINGS BETTER CONCERNS
Former Governor Eberhart of Min
nesota is in favor of "The Omaha
Plan" of getting industries to locate
in Omaha. He said so in his talk be
fore the Commercial club of Omaha
He heartily approved Omaha's plan
of offering a prospective new factory
or industry in Omaha the co-operation
of the Omaha -business men in
stead of offering them a bonus to get
them to locate here.
"A lot of cities spend a lot of time
and money," he said, "bribing fac
tories and industries to come, that are
no good when they get there. I
would much rather have the co-operation
of all the Omaha business men
promised me than all the bonus or
bribe another city could give me to
locate an industry within its borders."
Former Governor Eberhart had a
lot of things to say about Omaha as
a manufacturing and jobbing city. Of
course, his subject was something
about the problem of enforcing peace
after the great war, but then he could
not refrain from touching on manu
facturing and general industry while
he was talking and while he was in
the heart of the industrial whirl of
So he took occasion also to touch
on river navigation and its importance
to a city and to a community in the
upbuilding of industry, and the afford
ing of adequate facilities to handle the

Inventory of State Lands
(From . Stan Corrtapondeitt.)
Lincoln, April 8. (Special.) For
the first time in thirty-four years the
land commissioner is taking an in
ventory of the lands due the state
of Nebraska from the government by
reason of resurveys and rights-of-way
granted by the federal govern
ment through state lands.
No definite figures as to the acres
have yet been reached, but the De
partment of the Interior has been
asked to set aside as indemnity for a
part of this ihort acreage four farms
in Grant county. The lands are now
reserved from entry pending the
checking of the claims by the United
States Department of the Interior,
when, no doubt, they will be trans
ferred to Nebraska as common school
industries to the best possible advan
tage. "Water transportation is necessary,"
he said, "to a city like this, and I am
very glad to see that river navigation
is one of the activities with which the
business men here are concerning
themselves. There was a time when
the railroads fought river transporta
tion, but that time is past. They don't
fight it any more. They realiie that
there is an advantage in co-operation.
"Just at this time when we see the
assurance that it is only a question
of a short time when the cars and
railway facilities will be all tied up
with the transportation of munitions,
we can readily see the importance of
having river transportation developed
to handle at least a part of the normal
transportation the railroads handled
for us before."
As to the necessity of co-operation
between the railroads and the river
boat lines, Mr. Eberhart said: "It is
only a question of a short time when
they must establish joint transporta
tion. Facilities must be so arranged
with switches, trackage, docks, etc.,
that freight can be readily handled
from boat to rail and from rail to
boat. They must aid one another,
each being an auxiliary of the other.
"We can never have an adequate
service until this is accomplished and
is in good working order.
River navigation is now open on
the Missouri and the Julius Silber
has gone to Decatur loaded with mer
chandise from Omaha firms. It will
return soon with a full load of live
stock and grain.
Boats which have been in operation
here have made good money, and the
navigation committee says there Is a
good field for more boats.
