Dean of American Organists
to Open Musical Season
The musical season was inaugu
ratde with dignity yesterday when
Clarence Eddy, dean of American
organists, gave two recitals at the
Kountze Memorial church. The
h&tVY occasion which brought this
T favorite organist to Omaha again
was the presentation of the new or
gan recently installed. The instru
ment is an excellent one with mod
ern action, the console equipped
with every appointment for the con
venience of the performer. Of its
many stops the Vox Humane and
Clarinet are perhaps the most ad
mirable. Needless to say, Mr.
Eddy (who, by the way, seems to
be injeague with the powers of eter
nal youth) made the most of its
many possibilities. While there were
momenrrof profundity, his two pro
grams held much of a light charac
ter, as befitted the season.
The big numbers of the afternoon
program were the Borowski Sonata
and the brilliant Concert Variations
by Bonnet. "Hosana," by Dubois;
... Eddy's own arrangement of the fa
miliar Russian Boatman's Song and
a wierd "Basso Ostinato," by Aren-
. sky, while less taxing for both per
former and listener, were most thor
oughly enjoyable. A new negro
aong, "Mammy," from the "Magno
lia Suite," by Dett, found instant fa-
vor and was repeated by request in
The evening concert opened with
tht impressive Prelude and Fugue
by Bach, in which the composer's
own name furnishes the theme, the
'tones B, A, C and H, one of the
'.. simplest and grandest of themes.
" It was played with authority. Pie
tro Yon, from whom we have come
to expect good things as a matter
of course, was represented on the
program by a "Diversion" called
"Hope," full of fascinating harmo
nies and delicate effects. "Evening
Harmonies," by Karg-Elert, evi
dently a favorite of Mr. Eddy, was
curious in that its Wagneresque
progressions ended quit?, unexpect
edly in a passage of French chords.
"Neptune," by Stouton, was a rous
, ing festival march with a well con
' trasted middle section. One simple
carol, "The Holy Boy," by Ireland,
must linger in the listeners' memory
as a pure gem.
- To comment upon the playing of
Mr. Eddy would be superfluous.
Suffice it to say that he has lost
rone of his force as an interpreter.
His readings are vivid and his
magnetism is marked. The two
large audiences which assembled
yesterday were most responsive, a
fact which was noted and appre-
ciated by the great organist, v

Glasgow Retains Direct Action
Glasgow, Sept 11.. By a - com-.-
paratively close vote the trades
v union congress in session here today
i voted down a resolutiondeclaring
. against the principle of direct action.
The vote was 2.255.000 against the
resolution, to 2JD86.00O in its favor.
HERE is good news for play
goers: The Boyd theater will
be utilized a few weeks longer
before razing for high class shows,
the opening date being Richard
Carle in "Sunshine" September 26
27. Stuart Walker's company, pre
senting "Seventeen," is to appear
a the Boyd theater for the week of
October 12. If for no other rea
son than this, patrons will be glad
that the playhouse is to endure a
while longer, even if it does not
last for the entire dramatic sea
son. The site, as everybody knows,
is presently to be utliized for a new
building to be added to the Bur-gess-Nash
The following Schubert attrac
tions, however, have. been booked
for the autumn: -The first is the
successful farce, "She Walked in'
Her Sleep," which will be the of
fering in Ak-Sar-Ben week. The
engagement opens September 28
and closes October 1.
Next after that comes "Seven
teen," the charming play dramatized
from the story by Booth Tarkington.
Last season this attraction was
booked here, when the influenza
closed all the theaters. Again at
Christmas time the company was
scheduled to appear, but at the last
minute the engagement was can
celed. The musical comedy, "I Love
You," is to come October 23, 24 and
25. This is to be followed by the
big melodrama, "Seven Days'
Leave," which is booked for Oc
tober 26, 27, 28 and 29.
One of the bigpest attractions
sent on tour by the Schuberts, "The
Passing Show of 1918," is to be the
attraction late in October, with Eu
gene and Willie Howard being two
of the conspicuous favorites in the
No war play shown at the Or
pheum has aroused the enthusiasm
which is evoked by "An American
Ace," the big melodrama which is
on view this week. With a cast
of 17 people, headed by Taylor
Oranville and Laura rierpont, and
presented in 11 scenes with a car
load of striking stage effects, the
thrilling stage story is elaborately
produced. Three other acts of the
current show score emphatic hits.
One is the travesty act done by
Jack Durham and Sammy Edwards.
Another is the piano comedy of
Herschel Henlere. Still another is
the startling gymnastic feature pre
sented by European equilibrists
known as the Three Jahns.
Today George Douglass, John
Barry and their merry associates,
"The Bon Ton Girls," who have
done so much toward making Mer
chants' market week a grand suc
cess, will give their two final per
formances at the popular Oayety.
Tomorrow matinee, "The Million
Dollar Dolls, whom Omaha was
deprived of seeing last season be
cause of the "flu" shut down, will
open a week's engagement. Cliff
Bragdon, Ede Mae and Scottie
Friedell head the organization.
Ladies' matinee today and tomor
The Quaker City quartet at the
Empress fully sustain their reputa
tion. Their "Forge" number from
"Robin Hood" is put over with all
the fire and ambition of four lusty
blacksmiths. Another number that
proves a big hit is the patriotic song
entitled "America .Never Took
Water," which at the present period
is most appropriate.
Alexander, the original, "The Man
Who Knows," student of the occult
and thedelver into psychical re
search, and his show of wonders,
will commence ne'xt Monday night,
September 15, at the Brandeis thea
ter and continue six days, with a
ladies' matinee on Friday and a gen
eral matinee on Saturday.
E. S. Waterbury Addresses
Wholesale Credit Men
E. S. Waterbury of Morris & Co.,
Chicago, addressed the regular
monthly meeting of the Omaha
wholesale credit men at the Hotel
Fontenelle last night. He spoke in
opposition to the government regu
lation of industries, as defeating the
purpose for which it was intended
to reduce living costs.
The solution of the readjustment
of prices, he contended, was to in
crease production, holdings that
prices are all regulated by the law
of supply and demand. Strikes and
the formation of regulation bureaus
by the government, employing thou
sands of able-bodied workers, he
said, were the principal factors in
keeping up high prices.
Canadians and British
Organize Maple Leaf Club
Former members of the Canadian
and British forces in this city, all
casuals, many of them veterans of
three years of warfare, organized
the Maple Leaf club at a meeting
at the Army and Navy club last
night, lhe new club is now com
posed of 16 members.
Resolutions, seeking affiliation
with the Great War Veterans' as
sociation of Britain and Canada,
were passed. It is probable that a
charter will be received by the lo
cal organization in the near future,
according to J. H. Neilson, 4368
Burdette street, who was chosen
Admission of "Enemy"
' Delegates Up to Labor
Paris, Sept 11. The supreme
council has decided to let the inter
national labor conference, which
meets at Washington in October,
decide for itself whether German
and Austrian delegates be admitted.
The Italian delegation was anx
ious to have the council authorize
the admission of those delegates,
but the other delegations preferred

Building Tieup in Chicago

Chicago, Sept. 11. After seven
weeks of tie-up by a strike of car
penters and a lockout of allied
trades, Chicago's building industry

for North Platte Con

Episcopal church, held in Omaha,
closed last night with a mass meet'

clergymen, laymen and women.

western Nebraska churches will be
Bishop Hulse last night declared
that the present nation-wide cam

"This is a 'wake-up' movement,"
he said. "The enemies of Chris
tianity make that one of their prin
cipal arguments that the church is
asleep. It is not true. The church
necessarily uses different methods
from wide-awake business. The
church may profit by borrowing
ideas from business and applying
these ideas toward the realization of
the ideals of Christianity.
"Such is the object of the present
great survey of the 'stock' of the
church. We will see what material
we have in men, women and money
and will then apply it toward doing
the work that God would have us do
in the present-day world."
Women in Campaign.
Mrs. Arthur Goldsmith of St.
Paul spoke on woman's part in the
"Besides active work the Chris
tian women can help by prayer,"
she said. "The spiritual side of a

earnest prayers of Christian women
are the strongest powers in the
Bishop Remington of South Da
kota and Rev. George Long of Mil
waukee, Wis., were other speakers.
Bishop Hulse Speaks.
Yesterday was an extremely busy
day for the Episcopalian clergy of
this diocese. The conference con
tinued all day at the Trinity par
ish house, 1716 Dodge street.
Bishop Hulse spoke at the morning
"The nation-wide campaign of the
church now going on is showing the
people their responsibilities and
teaching them their ability to shoul
der those responsibilities,'" said the
bishop. "The primary purpose of
the campaign is not to raise any
money, but to inspire and inform
Episcopalians regarding the church's
activities and to mobilize all the
church's resources in men, women
and money for the expansion and
continuance of these activities, par
ticularly in missions, religious edu
cation and social service."

on "Facts Up-to-Date." He stated
that 24 dioceses have sent in com

work to be done to the people in
proportion as they are able to do
