In the presence of 300 Commercial

Meaing of Americanism.
Robert Cowcll and Richard L. Met
calfe spoke on the dignity, the ad
vantages, and the privileges of Ameri
can citizenship.
lorn Lynch spoke of the Red Cross
membership campaign, citing the his
tory of the Red Cross movement, and
urging all men who have not joined,
to do so.
Speaking of the privilege of Ameri
can citizenship, Robert Cowell said:
"It is a great thing to be a citizen
of a nation that gave freedom to
Cuba; and it is a great thing to be
a citizen of the nation that gave back
$20,000,000 of the indemnity collected
by the nations of the world from
China after the Boxer uprising. And
when the president of the United
States says we are not going into this
war for territory, nor for indemnity,
I believe he means what he says, and
that the American people w:ill stand
back of him."
Character Counts.
Mr. Cowell praised the dignity and
value of labor, and said that in this
country the time is coming soon when
there will not be an aristocracy of
wealth or of birth, but an aristocracy
of intelligence and character.
Richard L. Metcalfe used the figure
of the melting pot in speaking of
America, and admonished Americans
to see that there arc no clinkers in the
"If the product is not pure," he
said, "it will not be the fault of the
melting pot, but of the material that
goes into it."

Omaha Police Out of Aicohol
And Are Unable to Get Any
Omaha police surgeons yesterday
found themselves without alcohol to
use for medicinal purposes and no
way to secure it.
"We use several gallons a week,"
Police Surgeon Nigro said, "but we
are all out of it and can't get any
more. We used a great deal of it as
an antidote for carbolic acid."
In the last two weeks officers have
seized more than twenty-five gallons
of alcohol, which has been emptied in
the sewer.
Sour Stomach.
This is a mild form of indigestion.
It is usually brought on by eating too
rapidly or too much, or of food not
suited to your digestive organs. , If
you will cat slowly, masticate your
food thoroughly, eat but little meat
and none at all for supper, you will
more than likely avoid the sour stom
ach without taking any medicine
whatever. When you have sour
stomach take one of Chamberlain's
Tablets to aid digestion. Adv.

Prosecuted Boss Tweed,
Mr. Choat was 85 years old.
He came from an old New England
family. His father was a cousin of
the famous Rufus Choate. He was
graduated from Harvard in 1852, a
college mate of Phillips Brooks. He
established himself in New York in
1856 soon after finishing his law
studies, and as a member of the firm
of Evarts, Southmayd and Choate he
rose to leadership of the New York
He appeared in all the celebrated
cases it was said a case was not a
case unless Choate appeared in it
where fluency and wit and searching
cross-examination brought him con
siderable success.
He figured in the prosecution of
"Boss" Tweed and his followers who
looted the New York City treasury;
he so successfully defended General
Fitz-John Porter, that by reversal of
a court-martial that officer was rein
stated. He appeared in the Tilden will case,
the contest over Commodore Vander
bilt's millions, and the Chinese ex
clusion case, arguing against the
validity of the act. These are but a
few of the famous litigations in which
he figured.
Dares to Rebuke Court.
His professional income during the
height of his career was believed to
he the largest of any practioner in
the American courts.
It is on record that, during his
younger days, he had the daring to
rebuke a judge, who had turned to
converse with someone behind him,
while Choate was addressing the
court. Lhoate stopped short in his
address. The judge remarked the si
lence, and as His Honor turned to
face the room the lawyer began

time allotted me for summing up; and
I shall need your Honor's undivided

a brief term as a member of a state
constitutional convention, when he
was invited by President McKinley
in 189 to go to London as the Ameri

What He Would M.
The stories told about him, too,
were countless as those he told, for
he was one of those picturesque fig
ures about which stories cluster
some of which undoubtedly belonged
to others. One typical flash of his
wit is that with which he answered
a dinner partner, who asked who he
would chose to be if he were not
Joseph 11. Choate.
"Mrs, Choatc's second husband,"
was the instantaneous reply.
Mrs. Choate was Caroline D. Ster

five children.
