A most enjoyable recital was held
?A the Young Women's Christian as
sociation auditorium last evening,
when M. Albert Haberstro, lasso
cantante, gave the program, assisted
by Miss Lillian Eiche, cellist, of Lin
coln. Mr. Haberstro is a newcomer to
Omaha, having come here last sum
mer, and this is his first public re
cital, although he lias sung from time
to time, upon other programs.
Many nice things may be said for
Mr. Haberstro's singing. He has a
voice of beautiful quality, rich in re
sonance, sweetness and power, wide
of range, and full and even in de
velopment, lie sings with ease,
clearness and distinct enunciation,
and controls his voice well alike in
powerful fortissimo or in his soft
work. He presented two groups of
songs and an aria, "Ombre di Mia
Prosapia," from "La Gioconda," by
Ponchelli. which is well suited to
1 is voice and was given with care.
Yery nice pianissimos were noticed
in "On the Shore," bv N'eidlinger in
group one, a number which furnished
a marked contrast fo Schumann's
inspiring "Two Grenadiers," which
Many interesting interpretations
were given to the five songs contained
in the last group. A rhythmic "Com
rades in Arms" of a rather ligh. opera
type and military flavor was the open
ing number. This was followed by a
well balanced presentation of the Vul
can song from the opera, "Philemon
,"i:d Baucis." by Gounod. "Give a Man
a Horse He Can Ride," by O'Hara,
.save Mr. Haberstro an opportunity
for a wide variety of tonal effects, and
w ith the dramatic "Sword of Ferrara,"
by Bullard, held some of the nicest in
terpretative work of the evening. A
iinging climax was gained in "In
"iotus. ' by Bruno Huhn, which closed
t'ne program. Mr. Haberstro sang two
encores, the first by request, "Some
where a Voice in Calling." and a
charming sorig entitled "Until." I

Miss Eiche of Lincoln proved her

musical taste, and closed her second

Railroad Officials Work
On Uniform Signal System
In compliance whh the order of the i
uate railway commission officials of
tlie railroads operating in Nebraska '
nave commenced work on getting out
uniform signals for crossings at pub-:
lie highway.-. The new signals willj
ie in place early next year. j
Xext year the signals at all railroad i
rrossings in Nebraska will be of one
,iyle. These warning signs will be
set 300 feet back from the track. The
signal will be a metal disc, two feet
in diameter, with a black border.
Thereon, in black letters, will be "R.
K. 300 feet." The disc will be on
high mcta; post.
In addition to the signal warnings
it crossings in cities and towns there
will be flagmen, who instead of wav
ing flags to halt people crossing the
tracks will carry metal discs painted
white, on which in black and in large
etters will be the word "Stop."
South Omaha Brevities
Joseph Buggy, styling himself "a
taxpayer of Douglas county." has
filed forma! objection to the payment
of Sheriff Clark's jail feeding bills for
the months of August, September
and October, allowed by the county
commissioners November 20.
Buggv is a plumber emploved as
general foreman by J. J. Hannigan,
a contractor. Hannigan has been a
successful bidder on a number of
plumbing contracts for Douglas
county and Omaha.
The bills for the three months,
about which Buggy wants to go to
court with Sheflif Clark were allowed
by Jhe county commissioners Novem
ber 20. At the same meeting it was
voted to pay the bills for the months
of May, June and July. The district
court had decided in favor of the
sheriff. Commissioner Lynch voted
the only "nay" to both propositions.
Immediately after the bill for the
last three months was allowed,
County Clerk Dewey is said to have
been notified by Lynch not to pay
Sheriff Clark's warrant until 10 days
had elapsed, as a protest and appeal
from the order would be filed within
that time. On November 30. Buggy
filed notice of the appeal and protest
which lias just been recorded.
"I suppose Lynch figures that by
having some of his friends file the
protest he can hang tip this money
which is due me during a long legal
fight through the courts, in spite of
the commissioners," said Sheriff
Clark. "As far as 1 am concerned I
don't want a nickel out of this office
that does not legally belong to me.
But just for this reason I need every
nickel that docs belong to me. It
costs money to feed these prisoners
and they've got to be fed whether
Johnny .Lynch ties up the money
that ought -to go to pay the grocery
bills or not. We can't let them starve
while he is waiting for a decision in
my favor from the supreme court."
Commissioner Hoffmann estimated
that it would cost the county $3,000 to
carry the appeal on the former bills
to the supreme court and probably
would occupy a period of two year
