The overwhelming election of Mc

How the Opera Was Received In
The following concerning "The Bur
gomaster," which will be in Topeka Fri
day evening, is from the Omaha World
Herald of November 2:
"The Burgomaster" appeared at the
Boyd last night, fresh despite his sleep
of 2D0 years, and delighted one of the
best audiences of the season. He has
decided to remain for tonight and to
morrow night and throw in a matinee
Saturday for luck. Incidentally he will
do a few things at the Press club benefit
this afternoon. After seeing it one can
easily understand why "The Burgo
master" packed the Dearborn theater
in Chicago during the hottest weeks of
the summer just past. It takes an at
traction of superior merit to till a capa
cious theater night after night while
the mercury is hovering around the 100
mark and mankind recalls with regret
the lament of Lamb that he could not
"peel off his flesh and sit in his bones."
And that is what "The Burgomaster" is
and accomplished. It is as bright and
sparkling and wholesome at a glass c-f
spring water, and as refreshing as a cool
breeze in the desert. Mr. Gus Luders,
who composed the catchy melodies did
not strive to write classics that would
go thundering down the ages like a
Wagner overture. He wrote to set feet
to keeping time and blood to circulating
faster and he succeeded "The Burgo
master" is full of those tantalizing
tunes that one can not refrain from
whistling as he goes to and from his
work. From the time that the burgo
master drinks his draught that put him
to sleep until he finds his long lost sec
retary in the last act, the opera is full
of vivacity, good humor, catchy music,
charming lyrics and pure humor. Mr.
Pixley, who wrote the libretto and the
lyrics, knew what would take; and Mr.
Luders, who fitted the whole to music,
knew just what would set people to
humming snatches from the opera. The
result of this combination is 'The Bur
gomaster," a phenomenon in the comic
opera world. The company presenting
the piece is practically the same as that
which made the piece famous during its
long run in Chicago. Miss Yerrington,
who "ssays the leading part, possesses
a pleasing voice and infuses into the
opera a vast amount of vim and snap.
In the dual roles of Lieutenant Sweezer
and Willie Vonastorbilt she made a
Fplendid impression. Miss Coleman is
delightful to see and hear and her vocal
numbers were rapturously applauded,
especially "I Love You." Harry Daven
port as the Burgomaster, makes the
most of splendid opportunities and his
every apearance and word is the signal
for laughter. Knox Wilson won favor
by his splendid comedy work and his
saxaphone solo was a decided hit. Wil
liam Riley Hatch, who is a prime favor
ite in Omaha, appeared as the "Harlem
Spider," and hia representation of the
tough guy was a bit of artistic work.
The Spider and his "tough goils" won
enough encores to supply an average
company for a week. Tom Ricketts
added much to the pleasure of the even
ing by bis good work in the role of K.
Booth Taikington, a broken down actor.
Laura Joyce Bell appeared to good ad
vantage and added to her already splen
did reputation in Omaha, where she has
appeared several times, the last time in
support of Digby Bell. The scenic in
vesture of "The Burgomaster" is unusu
ally good. soTne of the scenes being
greeted with hearty demonstrations o
approval. The chorus is strong, both
numerically and vocally, and the young
ladies seem actually to get as much fun
out of the opera as those who sat out
in front. The Indian chorus, composed
of male members of the company, was
one of the best things of the evening.
The costuming is up to the standard de
manded by opera and scenery. "The
Burgomaster" is really up to all of its
advance notices, something that can
truthfully be said of very few theatrical
attractions. The performance will be re
peated tonight and tomorrow night, and
also at a matinee tomorrow.

How the State Committee Refuted
Charges of Unfriendliness.
During the campaign, the charge that
Governor Stanley has not sustained the
promises which he made to give the old
soldiers the preference in making ap
pointments under his administration, was
freely used.
The criticism of the governor has been
offered mainly with reference to the
state institutions under the manage
ment of the state board of charities.
The management of the state cam
paign has deemed the charges of suffi
cient extent and importance to cause
the publication of a letter which Gover
nor Stanley wrote to the board of char
ities soon after it was organized under
his administration.
It has also been charged that Gover
nor Stanley was not acting in good
faith when he referred applications for
places in the state institutions to this
The letter which the state committee
caused to be resurrected and published,
in the opinion of the campaign mana
gers, explains all of these charges as
groundless. The letter follows:
"The new administration will bring a
change in the management of the board.
1 have selected the new members of the
board because of my confidence in their
character and efficiency.
"The law provides that the subordi
nate positions in all charitable institu
tions in the state shall be tilled by par
ties of your selection. I propose to leave
the responsibility of these selections
with you, but if agreeable to you, would
be glad at any time to confer with you,
both as to your appointees and the man
agement of the several institutions un
der your charge.
"If changes are made in the employes
of these institutions I desire to make
the following suggestions:
"First That in making your appoint
ments, honesty and efficiency in the ap
plicants be the first consideration.
Second That all other things being
equal, you give preference to the sur
viving soldiers and sailors of the civil
"Third That you conduct the several
institutions under your charge with the
strictest economy consistent with effi
ciency. "Fourth That a prompt discharge
follow every instance of. dishonesty, im
morality or drunkenness upon the part
of your employes.
"With these suggestions I leave to you
entirely the management of the charita
ble institutions of the state, hoping for
you the greatest success in their admin
istration and trusting that your man
agement may meet with the hearty ap
proval of the people.
Accompanying this letter is the an
nouncement that three members of the
board are old soldiers and explaining al
so that the board has made the follow
ing list of appointments since March 1,
Fifty-two veterans of the civil war.
Ninety-eight daughters or veterans.
Kighty-three sons of veterans.
Three widows of veterans.
Twenty soldiers of the Spanish war.
One widow of the Spanish war.
A supplementary explanation claims
that there are at present in the service

Student of Public Buildings Visits It
and Talks.
George R. Quarrels, general traveling
agent for an eastern company, was in
Topeka recently. Mr. Quarrels only
makes the larger cities of the country
and visits them once each year. In the
course of the year he sees every state in
the Union.
He was standing on the north steps
of the state house when a State Journal
reporter was passing that way. The re
porter was accosted in the following
manner: "What building is that over
there?" pointing to the east. He was in
formed that the building in question
was the general offices of the Santa Fe.
Then followed questions in quick suc
cession as to the other large buildings
in sight, the high school, the city library
and the Presbyterian church being
among the more prominent ones.
In the course of the conversation Mr.
Quarrels said he had been through ev
ery state house in the Union but the
one in this city and that he was just
about to go through the Kansas state
Mr. Quarrels proved to be an interest
ing talker and could tell some little story
of almost any public building of import
ance in the United States.
"Did yoS know that there is one state
in the Union which is without a state
house?" he asked.
"Well there is. It is the state of Utah.
Plans and specifications have been made
for the building but it is not yet under
the course of construction. It will be
much larger than the building here or
for that matter than almost every state
house in the United States. It will with
out doubt be the most magnificent
building of its kind when completed.
Nearly all the money for its construction
has been appropriated but the fund still
lacks considerable of reaching the re
quired amount."
After visiting the senate chamber of
the Kansas state house Mr. Quarrels
was quite liberal in his praise of the
room, saying that it was far above the

Harry Davenport, the leading comedian
of "The Burgomaster" companv. which
comes to the Crawford Friday night, pos
sesses a valet who accompanies him en

absolutely necessary to assist him in his
many changes at each performance and
especially in the proloeue to the musical
comedy, when he portrays i"eter Stuyve

wooden peg for the other limb. This

Plays Havoc Among the Cages in a
Milwaukee Bird Store.
Milwaukee, Wis., Nov. 7. In the bird
store of W. F. Brummer & Co. yester
day afternoon a ring-tailed Chinese
monkey, one of the large variety, broke
out of his cage and started on a career
of murder and pillage. He killed two
canaries and pulled the tail feathers
from half a dozen parrots. When it
came to plundering, he found the draw
ers filled with packages of bird seed.
Not wanting it himself, he took to
throwing it at the parrots. It was while
this was going on that the police, at
tracted by a roaring crowd of men and
boys in front of the place, came and
tried to get in.
It was finally decided to send for the
proprietor. When he arrived the mon
key had reached the desk and was tear
ing up accounts and splashing ink. On
the entrance of Brummer the rioter fled
to one of the high shelves. The monkey
had released a number of smaller mon
keys and to these the bird man appealed
for help. At once they started in pur
suit and after an exciting chase the big
monkey was overtaken and pulled to
the floor by the little fellows. The bird
store looked as if it had been through a
cyclone. The damage can not be made
good for less than $50.
Jersey City Pastor In Hot "Water For
Censuring His Flock.
New York, Nov. 7. Rev. Percival C.
Pyle, rector of Grace PJpiseopal church.
In the Greenville district of Jersey City,
created a decided sensation among his
parishioners on Sunday morning. In his
sermon he charged that the church was
deteriorating with startling rapidity.
"When I came here, four years ago." he
said, "the old vestrv had nearly wiped
out the church debt. Then a new vestry
was chosen, and they have done nothing
but increase the debt, until it has almost
reached $5,000. The congregation dees nit
do its part toward sustaining the church.
"Some of the men. I am told, spend
their money on tobacco and in saloons in
stead of eriving one-tenth of it to the sup
port of the church, which is sadly in need
of its tithes. I have made calls through
out the parish, as mv duty commands,
and in some places I have had the doors
slammed in my face. I have even been
stoned in the street and I have been slan
dered in public."
One of the members said that the rec
tor's assertions were wild and unreliable,
"As to the use of tobacco," he said, "'ht
is all non-sense. The rector himself is
addicted to 1he use of the weed. The
members of the church ere sick and tii-ed
of the whole business. He has made trou
ble for ns before and we do not intend to
stand this sort of abuse any longer."

From the Louisville Courier Journal.
J. W. Buchanan, an attache of the gen
eral offices of the Louisville & Nashville
railroad, whose home is at 321 West
Market street, Jeff ersonville, relates an
unusual incident in connection with an
old hen's eagerness to raise a family,
not caring whether it was a brood of
chickens or not.
Several times the hen was supplied
with a sitting of eggs, but being a hen
of extraordinary weight she managed to
break the eggs and at last gave up the
egg-sitting job in disgust after Mr. Bu
chanan had placed a half dozen door
knobs under her henship. Along -came
a cat with three kittens. The old hen
chased the cat away and took charge
of the kittens. The real mother ses
them only occasionally, when she feeds
them, but when the hen comes storm

Then a sore or ulcer appears on some
part of the body ; it may be small and
harmless looking at first, but as the can
cerous cells form and are deposited by
the blood near the sore, it increases in
size and severity, with sharp shooting
pains. No matter how often the sore is
removed by the surgeon's knife or flesh
destroying plasters, another comes and is
worse. The real disease is in the blood,
and the treatment must begin there. The
poisoned blood must be invigorated and
purified, and when this is deme cancerous
cells can no longer form and the sore will
heal naturally and permanently.

Detroit Men Plan Big Mexican Enter
prise on Modern Lines.
Detroit, Nov. 7. An interesting exper
iment in conducting a western ranch
will be made this winter. It will be tried
in Lower California and Mexico by
Michigan people. Many of the old
ranching methods will be done away
with and in their place strictly novel
and up-to-date ideas will be put in op
eration. The ranch is controlled by J.
Durley Morton of Pontiac and his uncle,
T. Morris Flower, who has been ranch
ing in Lower California for several
years. Mr. Flower is a nephew of the
late Roswell P. Flower of New York and
Mr. Norton a grand-nephew.
The two ranchmen have secured con
trol of l(i6,0!K acres of land just across
the border from the state of California.
The property is seventy-five miles from
Pan Diego and thirty miles from
Ensenada, Mex., the nearest town. It is
situated in a valley, almost surrounded
by mountains, is fertile and well water
ed. Large quantities of grain will be
raised, 8,0fi0 acres already having been
sowed, but the main industry will be
stock raising. In addition to this the
ranch will possess one of the largest
poultry runs west of the Mississippi
river. The most modern incubating
plant will be installed for this portion
of the enterprise.
The ranch will b supplied with all the
conveniences possible. A unique feature
of it will b2 the placing of se eral s-arcii-lights
on the mountains overlooking the
ranch, thus replacing the old system of
night riding to prevent thlevine. Ti-e
tender of each light will be armed with
a long-range rifle and will also he pro
vided with a signal code by which lie can
fla-sh information to the other i;pht ten
ders and any one who may be out amoni
the cattle. Each light tender will nl'o
have at hand a telephone connected with
the main ranch, the pushing of the but

tFrom the St. Louis Republic
Henrique Amal, 14 years old, French
by descent, but a native of Pecos, Tex.,
has business that in Itself is unique,
and which certainly is practiced by no
body else of his age. He acts as In
terpreter, guide and general factotum
for parties of emigrants from Kuropa
traveling to this country.
Last night he passed through Union
station, escorting a party of 25 French
emigrants bound for Albuquerque, N.
M. He was very busy. Ail the station
officials asked questions of him in re
gard to tickets; he negotiated such pur
chases of food that had to be made, saw
that the baggage was properly checked,
and did a thousand things which would
naturally be a grown man's province.
He did all well.
He said that down in the southwest,
where irrigation is continually opening
up new lands suitable for vineyards,
there is a scarcity of steady labor, and
that the owners think it desirable to
colonize them with foreigners. To bring
a parly of these over, there is needed
somebody who can talk Kngllsh as well
as the language of the emigrants. He
was French by bii'th and spoke the lan
guage fluently, and consequently could
serve for persons of that nationality.
This is his second trip with colonizer,
making the fourth time he has crossed
the ocean. He Is a bright boy and at
tends to his duties thoroughly.
