Says Mrs. Cammenzind Had
Another Husband Living
When He Was Mar
ried to Her.
Charles Caninienzind lias added
another chapter to the domestic sit
uation of hii home filing an an
swer to his wife's petition for di
vorce. ' He alleges that at the time of his
marriage to Ella Cammenzind, July
23, 1917, sin was the legal wife of
Frederick Louis Meyers; that she
represented that she had been mar
ried only once and that her first
husband, named Olwin, had died.
Mr.. Cammenzind relates that when
he proposed marriage to his present
wife lie explained that on account of
religious scruples he could i.ot mar
ry a divorcee.
Says Marriage Illegal.
The husband contends in his an
swer that his nia-riage to Mrs. Cam
menzind was illegal and he intends
to contest her divorc action on that
The answer alleges that Mrs. Cam
inenzind recently went to Omaha
from Sioux City, ostensibly to visit
relatives and to locate a young
brother whose absence worried her
mother, and he charges that his
'wife journeyed to Omaha with his
daughter, Mary, for the purpose of
starting an action for divorce and to
obtain alimony.
He alleges that Mrs. Cammenzind
has been exercising a wrong influ
ence over, his daughter by a former
Mr. Cammenzind has been a
ranchman in Sioux county for 30
years. A feature of the divorce pro
ceedings was a habeas corpus case
brought last week against the wife
for the custody of the daughter; also
a damage action brought by Mrs.
Cammenzind following her success

Long Lines Waiting To Buy
Seats for Concert Friday
As was predicted the seat sale
which opened yesterday for Gal-li-Curci
concert next Friday night
eclipsed any previous demand. For
one hour or more before the box
office which opened at 9 o'clock,
was ready for business, a long line
of buyers were waiting their turn
and a steady stream has been lining
up to the window all day long.
Homer Samuels, accompanist,
and Manuel Berenguer, flutist, will
lit lime. Galll-Curci's assistants.
, Mr. Samuels is a talented pianist,
whose work is without the sem
blance of a flaw.
Mr. Berenguer is recognized as an
accomplished artist. Mme. Galll
Curci's programs are not at all rem
inscntof the old fashioned "Grand
Opera entertainment," for she is
not only a- remarkable mistress of
florid music, but is also a singularly
intelligent and convincing inter
preter of leider and modern songs
in many languages.
It is impossible to say whether
it is the voice itself, the art with
which it is used or the singular and
infectious charm of the singer's per
sonality that appeals most strongly.

Was Writing Letter to
Roosevelt When He
Heard of His Death
Boyd W. Carey, one of the young
men who was formerly connected
with the Omaha Grain exchange and
who enlisted and went overseas last
June, was seriously wounded in the
face during the last days of the
war. He is now on this side and in
the United States Naval hospital,
Recently Carey wrote to Leigh
Leslie of the Daily Price Current,
telling him of his injuries. Early
Monday morning Mr. Leslie was
writing a note to Colonel Roosevelt,
suggesting that he write a cheering
letter to the Omaha boy. Before he
had finished writing a friend came
into the office and apprised him of
the death of the former president.
Council Refuses Pension
to Widow of Fireman
' MS-s. Patrick F. Connolly, widow
of Capt. Patrick F. Connolly of the
Omaha fire department, appeared
before the city council asking that
she be granted a widows' pension.
' Her request was refused because
Captain Connolly died when his
service in the deparament was four
months short of the required 21
. years.
"If my husband hadnt been so
faithful to his duties and had taken
better care of himself when he was
taken sick I think he would not
have died," Mrs. Connolly said.
Captain Connolly 'died of pneu
monia following; Spanish influenza
and though Mrs. Connolly does not
claim his death was incidental to
his duties as a fireman, a man who
..' accompanied her stated that Cap
tain Connolly's -last illness started
when he responded to a fire call

To Refuse to Sell Drugs
to Cure Social Diseases
. t.
Health Commissioner Manning is
pushing the city campaign against
social diseases by an educational
drive and through the co-otjeration
of druggists.
"I am having notices posted in
pool rooms and other places where
young men congregate," he said.
These tell about the social vices
and diseases and the dreadful con
sequences they bring with them.
"Druggists have agreed io stop
thte sale of the patent medicines pur
porting to be a cure for these dis
eases, i This move, Ubelieve, will
bring afflicted persons directly to
competent physicians so that they
will get the best treatment and their
cases will be reported; by number,
to the state board of health."

Rev. Samuel Barrett Pays
High Tribute to Ex-President;
Nation Needs Mora
, Men With His Courage
Rev. Samuel Barrett, pastor of St.
Paul's Baptist cluirch, speaks of ex
President Roosevelt as the negro's
greatest friend in an article written
following Mr. Roosevelt's death.
The article is as follows:
"In the death of ex-President
Roosevelt the American nation in
general, and the negro race in par
ticular, loses its strongest individ
ual force for unadulterated Amer
icanism and one of the greatest
champions for right and justice the
negro has had since the days of
Garrison, Phillips and Sumner. Hiii
attitude toward the social, economic
and political problems of the negro
is one of the brightest pages to me
in his remarkable career.
Really Great Man.
"And it makes him really great;
fcr any man in a great position who
will conscientiously, and not for the
plaudits of men, champion the cause
of the oppressed, yes, and perse
cuted, in the face of an intrenched
anti-feeling; yes, who will stand; as
it were, alone and not follow the
rabble, lifts himself at once out of
the ordinary and immediately be
comes great. Men like Roosevelt
who work for human uplift never
die. Right and justice, with him,
as it related to the negro, were no
mere idle words, no classical phras
es, but were part and parcel of his
very makeup. His very soul hated
wrong and injustice, and when he
said, 'All men up and not some men
down,' it was to hin- a strong moral
and spiritual reality.
Entertained Booker Washington.
"When he entertained Booker T.
Washington, a man who gave his
life for his race, and in trying to
bring about more friendly and toler
ant feeling between the races, the
whole country went into hysterics
because they said he was putting
his seal of approval on that Amer
ican bugbear, social equality. To
the avalanche of criticism Mr.
Roosevelt opened not his mou':h.
He knew that if a man like Mr.
Washington, rising as he did from
such an humble beginning, could
build up such an institution in the
south as Tuskegee and be of such
-etical help to his race that he
vas worthy to dine with the presi
dent of his own country.
Appointed Colored Postmistress.
"I remember on one occasion he
appointed a colored woman to post
mistress in a small town in Missis
sippi, and when they refused to ac
cept her, he closed the office and re
fused to open it during his adminis
tration. H,e appointed a colored
man, Charles W. Anderson, by
name, to the collectorship of the
city of New York, and Mr. Ander
son held that office up to and during
the first administration of Presi
dent Wilson. He nominated an
other colored man, Dr. Crum, to be
collector of the part of Charleston,
S. C, and although the senate held
up the nomination continuously,
President Roosevelt never withdrew
the name. The auditor of the navy
was a colored man, the register of
the treasury was a colored man, the
recorder of deeds was a colored
man, and all these men were ap
pointed by Roosevelt. Mr. Roose
velt believed, and believed rightly,
that if a man paid taxes, bore arms
m defense of his country, as the
negro has done from the revolu
tion to the world war, in a word
a citizen, he ought to be allowed to

in East St. Louis, III., when colored
men and women were slaughtered
because it was said they were strike-

pers attempted to defend this crime
in a great meeting held in Carnegie
Hall, Mr. Roosevelt suddenly arose
from his chair, and with clenched
fist told Gompers that he was not

"This nation, and the negro
element in it, need more men of his
sterling moral courage. Lynched
as we are, men, women and child
ren, discriminated against in public
places, and public institutions, given
the most common and ordinary
kinds of work to do, irrespective of
our fitness, disfranchised through
out the south, if ever a people that
has been unquestionably loyal to a
country needs champions, it is the
negro. It is such characters as
Roosevelt that make the leaders of
the negro feel encouraged as they,
in their unaided efforts, attempt to
help their people in their various
social, economic, moral, religious
and industrial problems."
