Marie Franklin Polly Bright, grandpas protege Carrie Jie Ar At first blush the Foxy Grandpa pictures look a mighty small peg on which to hang ny sort of a play, musical or otherwise; but a very good thing In the way of a musical comedy baa' been suspended from it, and Joseph Hart and Carrie De Mar, as sisted by a bevy of pretty girls and some very clever young men, give life and quality to the conceit. Foxy Grandpa pictures merely figure incidentally. Just enough of them being usod to give license for the use of the name, but there are other pictures far mots to be desired than these rather in ane comic supplement features, and they are afforded In plenty In the working out of the theme for play purposes. A some what connected story runs through the piece, holding together the several Inci dents produced. Briefly, Foxy Grandpa and the boys, his nieces and his protege, Polly Bright, are at a summer resort. where an Italian adventuress seeks to and for a time does ensnare' the old man. He discovers ' what he Is tip against, and es capes by the aid of an Impersonator who has made up as his double. Polly Blight Is awarded In marriage to the young man of her choice, and the curtain goes down on everybody happy. Mr. Hart's charactorisatton of the old man who has not gotten over being a boy Is good; he has his own way of making fun, and does It without ever getting out of the character. Miss De Mar la the Pony Bright of the cast, and she fairly revels In witty words and cheery songs. She and Mr. Pearce do burlesque tragio stunt that brought down the house at both perform ances yesterday. Miss Wright ' makes a slgnorlna who might easily capture a less susceptible heart than that of Foxy Grandpa, and Mr. Bedding's Bolero Is also a clever bit of Impersonation. The chorus Is strong In numbers, voice and good looks, and groups together most effectively In the spot light pictures. The two boys are genuine boys, and their contribution Is not the least of the good things the piece con tains. Altogether, "Foxy Grandpa" is well worth the time spent In watching and listening to It. "Hearts Adrift' at tha Krsg, "Hearts Adrift," a melo-drama In which Intrigue and Infidelity, vicarious suffering and simple love are the essentials, thrilled two packed houses at the Krug yesterday and Is on the boards for three days more of thrilling, with , a matinee Wednesday afternoon. It Is certainly a thriller, but one that takes ' and whose snell does not prees so nara uui . ui&( u .conveys mucn that la of Intense human Interest The first two presentations yesterday afternoon and evening, respectively, were decidedly popu lar. This la one of those little vivacious melo dramas In which, though hearts and other treasures do drift off, they all come back and everything dovetails In at the last In the very way the over-wrought spectator would have It. The villains are slain, their plots and conspiracies frustrated and ruined, heroes and heroines triumph and love reigns supreme. The finish suggests All's well that ends well," but the thoughtful spectator Is repeatedly reminded that "There's many a slip 'twlxt cup and Up," for verily Its a rough road to travel be fore that blissful culmination Is reached and wnai penis ommm ma way. .mm unng 01 pistol shots becomes a fad, $60,000 is stolen. two murders and one suicide committed be fore the goal Is captured, but It's finally captured and then everybody Is gladder than ever that the pistol shots were fired. the money stolen and recovered and tha tragedies committed and halt sorry that there la nothing more doing. Mr. E. L. Snader as Captain Teddy, the hero who wins-his fame in the role of a detective. Is so far advsnced from ordinary twentieth' century selfishness fiiat he la willing to die for a friend, became very popular for his good work, and Frederick Backus and Auguetln Olasslmlre as the two villains ought to have been satisfied. for they brought out the hateful elements of their parts so lucidly as to force the audience to htsa them for nothing else than being villains. Miss Mabel Florence as Rose Barkworth, MIsa Fannie Mldgley as Peggy McOuIre, a KUlarney daffodil and Mr. Bert Walter as Simon Green, tha last two comedians, all won merited applause. The entire company waa pleasing and the scenery effective. Vaadevllle at tha Crelghtoa-Orpheasa, The bill for .the current week at the Crelghton-Orphrum baa some remarkably good features. All of the acts are good. for that matter, but at least three stand out strongly. Arneeen, the gymnast. Isn't on the scene long, but he Is there quite long enough to convince the watchers that his title of "Incomparable" has not been lightly assumed. His balancing Is simply marvelous, almost beyond belief. Charles Dickson and his assistants, Mlas Pauline Billings. Master Harry Goodwin and West- oott Adams, present a bit of a comedy that Is far above the average seen In a vaude ville theater. Mr. Dickson and Miss BUI Ings assume tha bulk of the work, and by their quiet methods succeed In winning much applause. They are both finished actors, and do not allow the fact that they are In vaudeville to deter them from doing their beet work. Paxton's pictures are a aeries of living models grouped to repre sent well known works of art, and are most cleverly posed and lighted, so as to bring out) the beauties of color and pose In the strongest way. The list given com prises the following: "The Quarrel," by Blaas; "Sword Dance," by Medavlc; "On a Country Road In Norway," by Hana Dahl; "Unexpected Visit." by Koch; "Scenic Pro duction of the Verdict of Paris In Old Rome," by Slemlradskl; "Golden Daya," by Dettl; "See-Saw," by Penea; "La Douche," by Scalbert; "A Christian Death In the Circus of Nero," by Slemlradskl; "The Af fair of Honor," In two pictures, by Bayard, Al Almont and Mile. Dumont contribute a pleasing series of selections on different boras, their trombone and cornet solos and duet being loudly encored. Emily Lytton, William Gerald and Joe M. Wlckes have a ketch. "A Lucky Duck." which contains the elements of a clever farce, but which la rather overdone. Bearl and Violet Allen do a stunt of conversation, song and dance that Is pleasing, and Carleton and Terrs have a new conception In the way of a "rube" sketch.

On the eve of election the republican campaign managers were confident of the success of the whole ticket, while the demo crat lo leaders confused their predictions with a plentiful sprinkling of "ifs" and "buts." Following Is what the county chairmen said yesterday afternoon: Chairman Cowell, Republican Every can didate of our party without a single ex ception will be elected by a handsome ma jority. While I dislike to forecast figures I am confident that the republican majori ties will rants from 1,000 to 1,600 and may go even higher in some cases. We are thoroughly organised and you will find very man at the polls performing his duty by casting a straight ballot.. No one need, feel alarmed over what the opposition has to say concerning a lack of "sincere har mony." The unification of the party In Douglas count is complete, and I sea no reason why we should not feel confident over the returns tomorrow. Chairman Dahlman, Democ ratio We rely, on the manifest lack of sincerity In the harmony movement among republi cans, aiid I believe our whole ticket stands an excellent show for winning out. There will be more scratched ballots than for years, deeplte the open factional fights that have prevailed In the past. The best In formed workers of the opposition concede that Power will be the high man on. our ticket, and thla means his certain election. The most excellent canvass made by Otto Bauman for treasurer and Flattl for county Judge Insure their elections by handnome majorities, aa does the campaign made by Broad well, Boyd, Drexel and Gish. Re ports from various districts In the county Indicate that the remainder of the ticket will win out by safe pluralities." Chairman Bartlett of the republican Ju dicial committee: "It Is Interesting to note In an advertisement In the dally papers where Mr. Ed P. Smith, chairman, and A. C. Kennedy, secretary, have promul gated matter under tha following heading: Shall the District . Court Be Partisan or Nonpartisan?' and sign the matter 'By or der of the democratic Judicial committee. Ed P. Smith, chairman, J. A. C. Ken nedy, secretary.' If thla is genuinely non partisan It must suggest itself to the mind of every thinking person that the order would not have been signed by the demo cratic Judicial committee, but by some non partisan committee. The truth Is that the ticket nominated by the democrats at the bar meeting, at which meeting the repub lican attorneys withdrew, contained the names on the democratic, ticket, with the exception of A. N. Ferguson, and Instead of Mr. Ferguson the democratic lawyers nominated a republican, Mr. Herman Aye of Washington county. The republican Ju dicial convention, having failed to "endorse the action of the democratic bar meeting, Mr. Aye publicly announced that he would not accept a nomination at the hands of tha democrats, fo Xhat It became necessary for the democratic lawyers fathering the scheme to supply . some one to fill the vacancy . on the democratic bar ' ticket caused by Mr. Aye's declination. But in filling this vacancy .they did not copeult tha democratlo bar meeting, but Induced the democratlo county ' central committee to name the delegates tq, the democratic judicial convention, .instead of permitting the rank and file of the democratlo party to choose them at primaries, thereby se curing control of , the democratlo Ju dicial convention, and were thun en abled to accomplish then purpose. Tha selection of the . slate 'Tamed by these few democratic law yers was resisted In the convention by such prominent democrats as C. S. Montgomery and others, but the result was that the slate went through, and A. N. Ferguson waa substituted for Herman Aye ''without the aid or consent" of the democratic bar meeting, and the ticket named by the detn oeratlo Judicial convention. Including Mr. Ferguson, was dubbed by It a nonpartisan Judicial ticket. "It la a well known fact that lawyers are somewhat technical and as a body cannot be Induced to father a proposition which they do not endorse. Judge Ferguson may be one of the best men and a worthy can? dldate upon the democratlo. ticket. It la a well known fact that many democrats wre not In favor of his candidacy, but whether In favor of It or not that ticket oannot be considered as a bar nomination-without Its endorsement by the bar, although, composed maln!y of democrats at the bar. meeting which finally made the nomination without their being consulted. Hence It Is unfair and untrue to say that thla Is a nonpartisan bar nomination, and the very fact that Ed P. Smith and J. A. C. Kennedy sign this as chairman and secretary of the democratlo Judicial committee stamps their manifesto with error In making the statement that this la a nonpartisan ticket. Democrats everywhere In the district are on to tha scheme, aa well as the republic ans, and Intend to rebuke the high-handed manner by which this ticket waa selected. and to visit punishment upon the candi dates who, without any sense of decency, accept a nomination brought about aa this was. I expect that tha republican Judicial ticket will carry every county In the dis trict, something unheard of heretofore." . Vice Chairman Scott of the democratlo state committee who, officially, la conduct ing the campaign for the state ticket, was heard .soliloquising the other day some thing like this: ' "Money we have none, We are too poor to carry out many legiti mate campaign schemes. Whether we are going to get through with all bllla paid or not I don't know. At first I thought there would be plenty of funds, because of a great amount of enthusiasm, but I have found the enthusiasm disappointing and the wherewithal most elusive and retreat ing. I do not like to manage this kind of a campaign and will not do It again If I can help myself." Bo much for the unguarded statements of Mr. Scott, which, to do him justioa. were not couched In exactly the words used but the meaning was tha same. It Is the sentiment of the democratlo leaders generally that the Sullivan rainbow la due to fade from the sky election day. - A closing spiel Is expected lot the shape of a baton of dodgers boosting Telser and Dickinson In tha name of union labor for circulation especially among the South Omaha packing houne men. An effort was made last week to get the Central Trades council of South Omaha to pass an en dorsement for these candidates, but It failed. "In order that nonreglatered voters may know whether they have a light to swear In - their votea today, I wish to have the conditions thoroughly understood, said City Clerk Elbourn. "In the first place his affidavit must be supported by two resident freeholders of the voting dis trict in which the nonreglatered elector re sides.

Admits Shooting; His Conipanloa, bat Declares it Was Dona Accidentally. Ole Hanson of - Benson, the 17-year-old boy who was shot Sun day afternoon by his U-year-old com panion, Thomas Brockdorff, 2bl4 Cass street, while the two were out hunting on the Dodge street road near Woll's saloon, died from the wounds, which produced in ternal hemorrhage, at his home at 2 o'clock Monday morning. Brockdorff, who admits shooting his com panibn accidentally and with no malicious purpose, Is held at the police station, but no charge will be preferred until after the coroner's Inquest Wednesday, If then. The body of young Hanson will be kept at bis home In Benson until after the Inquest, pur suant to orders from Coroner Bralley. ' It will be Interred Thursday . In Eprlngwell cemetery near Benson. , , Young Brockdorff expressed a desire this morning to make a statement for himself which he. Captain Haxe and Sergeant Slgwart should sign. His desire was granted, and this Is the statement as the young man dictated It to Captain Haie: "Ole Hanson and 1 went out for a hunt. as told In' the morning papers,' and Went west along the railroad track to. Paplo creek. Ole had ray revolver. I, asked him for It, but he refused to give It to. me, and then I asked him the second time for It. Ole kept on shooting with my revolver and I said: 'If you don't give me that revolver my gun may go off.' I had put my gun to my shoulder and was pointing It directly at him. I did not In my heart Intend to shoot him I pulled the trigger, not realising the gun was cocked and shot him In the back." Brockdorff Is under a tense nervous strain and manifests grief over the tragedy. Story of the Affair. The two-boys started out early Sunday morning to hunt. Each of them carried a shot gun and young Brockdorff had a revolver. The two boys were shooting at a fence post and Brockdorff handed the revolver to Hanson, who fired a . shot at the post. Brockdorff asked his companion to return the revolver to him,- which the boy for some reason failed to do at once. Then the statement of Brockdorff and the tragedy followed. The gun was discharged and the entire load of shot entered the back of Hanson, who fell to the road. After the shooting occurred Brockdorff Immediately started down ths road on the run. He had gone but a short distance when he met H. C. Barnes, a contractor who realdes In Benson. To Barnes the boy said that a man down the road had been ascidently shot and naked him to go to his aasistance. Barnes made the boy ac company him back to the spot where Han son lay. The wounded boy was taken Into Barnes' buggy and conveyed to the home of his parents In Benson and a physician summoned. John McOutre, who Is JusUce of the peace In Benson, heard of the shooting early tn the evening, but understood that It was accident.!, and took no steps at once to secure the arrest of- Brockdorff. Later he with Special Deputy James Gallagher of Benson called at the Omaha police sta tion, where they left a report of the case. Detectives McCarthy and Ferris were as signed to arrest Brockdorff. They went to the home of the young man about 10 o'clock, but the house was dark, and they could secure no Information as to hU whereabouts. About 13 o'clock Sunday night they made another trip to the place and found the young man at home. I Brockdorff Was Excited. The parents of Brockdorff said, that he had come home early In tbe evening and had appeared very much excited - and nervous, but when questioned failed to tell them anything of the shooting.

After his arrival at the station Brockdrtrff said he was so excited at the time that he did not know what to do and did' the flint thing which came Into his mind, and that was to run for assistance. When he met Barnes he did, not know what' to say, but It occurred to him that It would be better to deny the shooting, which he- did by stating that the man had accidentally shot himself. ' - The story which was secured from Han son shortly after the shooting agrees with that told by Brockdorff, excepting in a few minor details. The -Hanson and Brockdorff families have been friends for years, and the two boys have been playmates for a long time past It Is not believed by those who are acquainted with them that Brock dorff did the shooting maliciously, and. In fact, the police look upon It as more of aa accident .than anything else. HUNTS UP MANY OLD BOILERS Inspector - Scheldt Makes a New Record for-Ills Department v ' Daring October.
