Sllmguff's wife Josie lntrupldl eggy, per lngulaltlve daughter Ethel Johnson Catherine, companion to Helen .u;a jensen A visit from "The Storks" to Boyd's theater last night was sufficient is call forth a good audience, which applauded vigrously the music, mors or less tuneful, not much of It original, Jokes which were clever, or mannerisms which were funny, characteristic personages who were decid edly original, and a chorus of vigorous voloes, to say nothing of the local remarks and "joshes" which wers frequently In evidence. The soloists were of ths usual light opera style, wltb the one exception of Miss Harriet Standon, who showed an unusuallly good voice, wltb a good style of tone production, marred only by a care lessness in tiis pfouuuiilalluu of certain words. Miss De Sousa, who was heralded as an Omaha favorite, was much encouraged by her audience. It was evidently in sym pathy with ber throughout the entire even ing. She has a very winning personality, a bright, pleasing and nromiseful voice and an bonest straightforward way of singing and acting which satisfies one by its ear nestness. Ths duet In the first act which Intro duces Miss Ds Sous and Frank Kushworth, ths tenor, was bds of the gems of ths evening. It was novel in every way, and If the ending was sweetness long drawn out, it was a 'etching bit f haraaonioue work. Mr. Rusbworth did aome very good work in ths "Song of ths Night," exhib iting a good voloe of effective and musical quality, with a tendency to push bis upper tones, or let them die into falsetto. He has a good stage presence. Mr. Wolff has a voice. It is a mighty voice. He uses U mightily and if hs may be criticised for over-strenuousness, b must certainly be praised for bis infusion of dash and vigor to every scene in which be has a lead. Mr. Richard Carle, who wrote most of the libretto, directed the performance per sonally and was ons of the "Storks" when be was not busy "bungling," as it were, In bis capacity as the Bungaloo of Bak terla, was very mirth-provoking. In fact, he was distinctly "all right." His work was of that quiet nature which provokes the audience to the heartiest enjoyment. The real Barns bee type cf comedy, and bow rare it is! Mr. Carle and bis fellow stork, Gilbert Gregory, made good with the audi ence from their first entrance to ths last curtain. Miss Johnson did some Interest ing character work, as did also the Ir resistible William Rock, with bis sepul chural "Brlsopholua." The chorus was com posed of fresh, vigorous voices, ths men very robust and ths women vary bright. The ensemble effects were well worked up. and there was no lack of climax.

One of her supporters, the wile of a member of Parliament, made personal charges against their opponents and In spite of hisses and prolonged Interruption, Lady Helen persisted that she be allowed to continue. The wife of another member of Parlia ment declared that the executive commit tee bsd deliberately tampered wltb Lady Helen's circular by issuing It wltb under lined sentences which were not marked by the president. This statement was greeted by a chorus of hisses from the Scotch women assembled. Then the delegates stood up and shouted and wild confusion prevailed while the tellers for the vui.e were appointed. Lady Helen, referring to one of the women chosen, said: "She should at least be trusted." Whereupon all the other tellers, believing tbelr honor to be Im pugned, refused to act. A ballot was im mediately taken and after the uproar had subsided it was found that Lsdy Helen's lignatlon bad been accepted by 133 to 3 votes. The countess of Aberdeen was then elected president.

"It will pot do to bare this ideal established from Imagi nation, but from a scientific study of so ciety.

Tbe future society exists poten tially in the prevent and it must there fore be discovered what elements there are to mould tbe ideal. A few elements are now revealing themselves . In social life which are tbe fundamectal requirements of an Ideal humanity. These are a high de gree of social Intelligence, perfected social organizations for the accomplishment of social tasks and tbe truly co-operative spirit. "We must look forward to a realisation of society in which nothing lncor;stent with these elements may be found: a society In which the atrocities of the individual and naUonal strife will no longer be per mitted: a society in which kings and em perors will no longer exist because no one will assume authority over his fellows."

It fa the stern, solemn truth that when a prisoner at the county jail was searched yesterday afternoon there was taken from bis coat and vest enough rubbish to fill two market baskets. Frank Kochar was his name and be bad just been brought In from the fiver bottoms of East Omaha by a deputy sheriff with an insanity warrant. Upon bis arrival in tbe Jail the official "frisker," who Is the brave man who reaches into strange pockets to get be don't know what, made a Gastonlan bow and delved into the first hole be saw. He brought forth a soap wrapper, two long pieces of fish line and a book of Instructions on palmistry that kind of palmistry that enables one to look at tbe back of another man's hand and tell instantly whether it Is worth while to drew any more cards. The next handful consisted of more paper and that article of woman's apparel which lnntrs something like a shopping bag, yet which goes on before the shopping bag and still is behind tbe shopping bag. To de scribe tbe rest of the searching process is not worth while. It was merely the process of pulling one handful of trash after an other from the recesses of that marvelous coat and vest, the most sensational piece, Perhaps a dead mole. It was discovered that he bad silt the' pockets of the gar ments and weighted the lining wltb this valueless trash. Wien the search was complete two market baskets were heaped above their rims with the stuff. Kochar, who Is 62 years old, gives no explanation of bis Strang mania. - - ' ' JOHNSON BOYS ARE FOUND Tkey Vlalt Kaaaas Cfty and Other Folate of latere ta Mlasaarl. alheet Jnbnaon. rider of the two sons of W.

The meeting of the executive committee of the Commercial club at noon yesterday sounded an echo of the irrigation congress beld at Colorado Springs last week. George H. Maxwell, tbe executive chairman of the National Irrigation asaoclatlon, was preent snd delivered an address. In which be pre sented tbe reasons for continuing the x latenoe of tbe association. Tbe address touched upon many phases of tbe work of Irrt ration. "The educational propaganda which the National Irrigation association has been carrying on for the last three years and which has changed tbe public sentiment of tbe east from opposition to a generally favorable sentiment must be enlarged ten fold and carried Into tbe west as well as Into tbe east," said Mr. Maxwell. "Home rule in irrigation should be tbe slogan of the Irrigators of ths west from this time on. Tbe individual Irrigator should manage his own ditch on bis own farm. Each canal system, large or small, should manage its own aCalrs. Where more than one canal system takes water from a single stream tbry should all be organized together iuto one association to manage their mutual Interests and divide tbe water among them selves. If public officers are necessary, each drainage basin should be organised sepa rately into an administrative district, hav ing power to elect Its own water commis sioners and ditch tenders. No such officer should be appointed and put over any irri gated community by any governor or any state board of any kind, and no such ad ministrative district should be organised unless it is done voluntarily by the Irri gators themselves Upon tbelr own Initiative and -vote."

INJUNCTION ARGUMENTS END Tea Hoars of Talk Before Twa Jadars f i Mra SHIM Caart. During the ten hours of argument allotted In the I'nlon Pacific injunction Against tbe strikers tbe pith of the line of thought of each opposing side has been plainly brourht out before Judges Munger and MrPhcrsnn, sitting in Vnitrd Stctes circuit court. For the railway company John N. Baldwin fin ished his fourth hour of argument at noon yesterday, and had one more hour for clos ing between 4, and S in the afternonn. Meanwhile for the strikers Ed P. Smith completed his three hours' .argument at 11 o'clock In tbe morning, and C J. Smyth finished for the defense with two hours In the afternoon, commencing pt 2 o'clock. The sum and substance of tbe argument of the railroad counsel has been as follows: "Testimony has been introduced showing that stnee the beginning of tbe strike there have been twenty-four assaults, one murder and forty cases of threats snd Intimidation resulting from It. This shows exactly v. hat tbe picket line has done and forms ample basis for the granting of an Injunction against it." To this the defense has made reply: "It has been shown that of all the men Involved in this injunction only twelve have been guilty of any misdemeanor or wrong conduct as charged. For the handling and proper punishment of these malfeasants the criminal laws of the state are ample and sufficient. It would be an outrage to issue an Injunction including tn its purview 2W men Innocent of any offense because half a score have misbehaved." If tbe Injunction is granted it Is the Inw that not only the 140 odd men mentioned ia the application and served in the rase Hre Included In its scope, but a'l men even bearing of it. Chnmo&fftie"!
