M The lapsing of the Isle of Pines treaty on account of Its not being ratified within the time limit, Is re garded here to bo mainly due to tha fact that the State department at Washington did not call attention to the matter. It would also appear, however, that the Cuban State department failed to remember this time limit The treaty waa signed In Ha vana, July 3, 1903, and waa ratified by the Cuban Senate on July 18. since when It ha been pending In tho I'nlted States senate. The last condition of the treaty was to the effect that the ratifications be exchanged In Washington within seven months of the date of signing. Persons Interested In securing American sovereignty for the Isle of Pines are Jubi lant at this development, considering It to be a setback, which gives additional prom ise for the defeat of the proposition that the Island remain Cuban sovereignty. Ths Board of County Commissioners voted to build a crib in the Missouri river at East Omaha to prevent further disas trous overflows of the river there, where it has wrought such great damage and de struction. This was the result of the commissioners' visit to the scene yesterday. The crlh will cost 14,000, S2,) to be raised by the property owners. Kcnnard alone Voted against the proposition. He thought the county should wait for the government to do Its own work. This resolution was adopted: We have carefully examined the condi tion of the river front at East Omaha and would recommend that Douglas county construct one crib fifty feet long by twelve feet wide and sixteen feet deep, well con structed with piling and planking and tilled with rock, at a point designated by tho county surveyor and to do the grading and throw up dikes sufficient to protect the Interests of Douglas county, as shown on profile now on file In the office of the county surveyor. The above work to be done under the direction nf the county commissioners and the county surveyor. When It came to a vote on this resolution Commissioner Kennnrd said he would like to explain why he felt he must vote ngalnst the adoption of the measure, lie did not wish to be put on record us against doing any work there, as there was no doubt but it was needed and at once, but he did not think It was Incumbent on Douglas county to build any crib or put up any temporary work of any kind. He was In favor of doing the proposes grading, he said, but he did not think the commission had any right to spend the county's myney for work that was manifestly the govern ment's. Another reason why he opposed the measure was on account of the short age of funds at the disposal of the com mission and the large number of demands upon Its resources. Commissioner McDonald voted In favor of the resolution and thought the only trouble with it was that they hud not gone Into the restraining of the river to as lurge an extent as they should have done nor as the danger to the property of the people on that particular part of tho bank war ranted. He wanted It understood. However, that he was In favor of the work only on the condition of the government's consent and approval. Commissioner Connolly said it was true that, as had been Intimated, a government engineer had surveyed the situation within a short time, but it was not true mat ne hnd not seen fit to make any recommenda tion. On the contrary he had realized inn .lumrer that threatens property in that vicinity and had said so. But, Mr- Con nolly said, there is so much red tape at tached to everything that tha government does that.lt would take a year or more before it would even get started to do any thing, und by that time we would have no East Omaha and there would be no need of doing the work. He thought it was en tlrely within the province of the board to protect any of ita citizens when they were as much In need of It ns these people, and that It would be far. more wrong to dlsre gard this appeal for help than It would be to spend the county's money In extending it. Therefore, he voted In favor of the adoption of the resolution. Chairman O'Keefe also voted In favor, He was inclined to second Mr. Connolly's sentiments In the matter and further cited the fact that If something waa not doo Immediately the rip-raps that already have been put In by the government at a cost of $15,000 will surely be washed out In the spring. The resolution wbb therefore adopted by a vote of four to one. A committee will at once wait upon Colonel Chittenden, the government erglneer In chirge of the Mis souri river at this point, now at Sioux City, and get his permission to proceed with the work. In addition to the work that will be paid for by the county. East Omaha parties already have raised a fund of 11,300 with which to put In eight fasclnea to further hold the river to Its course. Theei) will cost $250 apiece, so that In order to complete them at least $700 more must be raised. It Is proposed further to gel the government machinery to working at once, bo that by the time the local work shall have become Insufficient I'ncle Sum will have taken the matter up and begun some thing that will keep the river where It belongs for all time to come.. The work which the commissioners de cided to have the county pay for will cost In the vicinity of $2,0n0, according to the statement of one of the members of the board.

So much by way of Introducing the gen eral remark that "The Isle of Spice" made a distinct and appreciable hit In Omaha on Its first appearance, and the large, though hot ultra fashionable, audience enjoyed every moment of the evening, and laughed and applauded until the theater resounded with merriment. The r'.r,ce Is one well calculated to engender Just such enthusl asm. It Is built oii the good old-fashioned lines of extruv.igunxu, and brims with witty remarks, comic situations, pretty music of the light order, the music with the snirit und the apurkle In it, choruses that are melodious without being mere Jin gles, and snoppy movements that blend Into pictures of ImmuiIv. Indeed, the ending of the second act Is one of the prettiest ever seeii. being novel in conception, artisuc In design and almost perfect in execution The curtain was raised severnl times to satisfy the demand for the picture. It would take too long to give individual mention to the features of the evening. Mr. Kelly worked like a man trying to mako good with his rule, arid as he has the qualifications of a first-class singing comedian, he had no trouble. Toby Lyons and Denman Maley share with Mr. KpIIv In the Biieeess of the comic part, Mr Lym's topical song In the third act, "The Go -Goo Man," with its chorus of lively midgets, was Very warmly received, and Its oral hits a success. Ir. Kelly's "Father's Always Talking In His Sleep" was another of the hits. But the greatest winner, prob nbly of the evening, was the duet between Mr. Armstrong and Miss May, "You and I." The people enjuyed the very realistic ending of the refrnjn, and Insisted on hav ing It repeated until It became plainly embarrassing to Mis May. and the audi enco In mercy foreliore. The chorus la well calcu' ted for Its part In the presents lion, both in point of looks and for ability to sing, sr.d the Staging is good.
