Judge Mung-er baa handed down a memo randum opinion In the United States circuit court In the case of Samuel Relchenbera;, complainant, aalnst the Mason City ft Fort Podge Railway company (Great West ern) In which he denies the relief afcked by complainant for compensation for dam ages to his property caused by cutting- down and grading of a portion of Nineteenth treat in the city of Omaha adjacent to the complainant's property and also dismisses the bill to restrain the cutting down of Nineteenth street for railway purposes as granted by the city council. The city of Omaha by ordinance vacated a portion of Nineteenth street from the south up to the south margin of Keicheu berg's premises and authorised the Great Western railway to enter upon the same, cut down the (Tads thereof and looata its tracks and ridings in the vtejnlty. Relohso. berg claims that because bis premises abut upon Nineteenth street h has a special property right in that street or Its rontage along block 10, and by reason thereof ha cannot be deprived of suck prop erty right without compensation for his damages first being ascertained and ten dered. Assuming It to be a correct proposition of law that a property owner has a special Interest In the street which abuts on bis premises, the court does not think he has auch special property interest In a portion of the street which doea not abut upon his -premises and that the same may be vacated Without ascertaining his damages, so long as the street which abuts upon his prem ises and which gives him free and full access to his premises Is not taken away. In this case the street la undisturbed from the south boundary of the complainant's premises to the north and he has full and free access from his premises to the public atreets. The court holds his damages are only In kind with other property owners. WOMAN IN CLUB AND CHARITY. MAYOR SAYS SIGNS MUST GO Vetermlaed Ksecata Order, Wktch, City Attaraey Wrlckt sax, la Valid. Mayor Moorea says he intends to stand Arm in his effort to rid downtown streets of curbstone signs and advertising devices. While ha will accord the committee from the merchants and business men a hearing be thinks Its argumenta will not change bis attitude. The matter of electric signs. In his opinion, has nothing to do with the curbstone nuisance. The first of the fifteen-day notices to remove the signs esplrea April 24." said the mayor. "It may be necessary to give the notice again In writing, but after this for mality Is complied with and the time esplred X shall order a force of man from the public works department to remove the nuisances, provided 4he owners do not get them out of the way. I am told by the city attorney that I am right from a legal Standpoint, and I think a majority of the dtlseng will back me up." 4 - Tea free trtpa. to the World raUr'eacb ikets. 1m congou a page N The Woman's Auxiliary to Typographi cal Union ISO met Monday afternoon at the home of Mrs. W.

Two evenings will be gtvon to the exhibition, Mondsy and Tuesday, May t and S. Owing to the cramped space In the gymnasium, and that a crowd may be averted, only a limited number of tickets will be sold for eaoh evening. At the meeting of the parliamentary practice department, held Monday after noon at the home of Mrs. W. H. Han cock, Mrs. W. P. Harford waa re-elected leader of the department; Mrs. M. J.

There will be orches tra muaiu and in addtloa to this Mrs. Don ovan and Mrs. A. L. Bheets will sing Leh mann's "Bong of Love and Spring," Miss Corlnna Paulsen to play the accompaniment. The following program la announoed for the press session of the 6M Louis bi ennial of the General Federation of Worn' it's Clubs: The press session which will be held on the alleruoon of May 21. will depart in soverat iruuiuni iroui me pieaa ea-liins of preordlng ulennlale. MIm f'loreace Hay Wanl, chalimau of the tieiteral fceaeiation press committee, realised that an unusual opportunity offered Itself In the fact that the dales of the biennial covered those of the World's Press parliament, thus mak ing It possible to onus- toavlher the dele galea to the biennial, and the leading rep resentatives of the profession of Journal- Ism, not ouly ef the Uuiied States, but of ins woria. Arter a conierenoe witn Mrs, David R. k'raocls and kra. Phlllo N Moore, the two other members of the General Federation lrea commit tee, it was (leaded to Lave Uie presa aessloa consist of two parts; the first consisting ot short addresses from four speakers, two men and two women, journalists, all prominent end representative members ef the pro fession. This part of the program will oc cupy an hour and a half; the second part to consist of a reception to the executive committee of the world's Press parlia ment and their distinguished guests. The officials of the World's fair, espe cially President Francis and Mr. W. B. Stevens, secretary, heartily approved of the plan as a whole and Immediately of fered the use of a suitable building at the World's fair grounds In which to hold the seaalon. An offer which, It Is needless to say, was accepted promptly. The Italian commissioner general, M. Giovanni Branoal. on learning that the session would be held at the world's fair grounds, generously offered the services of the Italian marines as attendants. They are picked men, in uniform, and will add a note of Interest to the afternoon. The band in attendance will be either that of the Philippine Boouts or of the Philippine Constabulary, obtained through the courtesy of the Philippine commis sioner, Dr. W. P. Wilson, and the United States officer in command. Captain John ston. Though not finally arranged for. It is f robable that tea will be served by at endants from China, Japan and Ceylon, after the fashion of each country. The large number of guests at the session, par ticularly during the second part of the program, tne reception, will mane it im practical to offer more solid refreshments, but as the session will open at 2:30 p. m., and end In In good time for dining and at tending the evening session at Odeon, it Is believed that the tea offered during the reception will be all that Is needed. The art session occurs on tne evening or the 14th. The chief feature will be an Illustrated lecture on "Landscape In Poetry and Palntmg." by Mrs. Kisie J. Hlattner. This lecture Is a study of the development of the modern feeling for Undtcape, aa ex pressed In poetry and painting, and snows some of the causes and Influences that have made landscape a favorite theme of American artists.

Remendado Lilius Pastia, Innkeeper Mercedes Krasqulta Mlchaela Carmen There Is such a beautiful lawless disre gard of all of the seventeen sacred things in the naughtiness of Carmen the dlsrs gardful abandon which we commonplace law-tamed mortals In certs In moments envy so that wa all admire the capable wanton and secretly wish her luck. And Don Jose will keep a-hanglng around, and In the last act gets his largest friendship from the audience for holding the oold steel so well. He should have sung "Back to the Woods" early, when Carmen and the audience were tired of him and have gone. Carman is Ilka some of the good little books In the Sunday school library wa all lova the bad boy. Rose Cecilia Shay makes bad that Is, a good Carmen. She la wantonly wicked right up to the limit, and sings the re spectable gentlemen of Seville out of all remembrance of publlo opinion. She had not gained complete control of her voice last night, but ths hoarseness waa only no ticeable at intervals, and when It per mitted, the audience were much pleaaed with the quality of her contralto. Her ong, "When Love Unfolds His Wings Above You," gained hearty applause, and her singing throughout, barring an oc casional hoarse note, was very pleasing. James Stevens as Escamlllo, the toreador, sang well again, although he might per haps have thrown a little more abandon Into the lilting song of the toreador. The chorus and ensemble In this song, however, were excellent. The chorus has mora to do than In soma of ths operas and sang well, the cigarette song to the smoke In the first act being specially good. A hear ing of Blset's score with Its smashing cli maxes makes the auditor regret that the musician's early death cut us off from more of this brand of muslo. "Oeergla Camp Meeting0 at (he Krag. An organisation of colorsd vocalists Is giving an entertainment of music and negro foolery at the Krug for the latter half of the week under the nam of "Georgia Camp Meeting." Among tho numbers on the program are several songs and choruses that have been made fa miliar -by other singers and soma old-time plantation ditties and negro hymns. Sev eral of the company possess musical voices of some training and the choruses, while light In volume, are pleasing In tone. The general aspect of the show Is not such as warrants any suspicion that It will set the river on lira at Its present stage. The company will be at the Krug until after Saturday night, with the usual Saturday matinee. Asaatear katta.t at the Orakeasa. Ths amateur show given after the reg ular bill at the Orpheum matinee Thursday commanded mora serious consideration than any that has been presented, three out of the four acta being of such merit as to escape a thought of ridicule, eaoh being given by children who could scarcely help but win sympathy from aa audience. The Misses McCane and Oatsrllts. of about I In years, danced prettily. Minnie Weber, of but about two years farther along In life, played the violin ootnmendably. Sing- tog, dancing and corset playing by the two Becker children showed them to be talented and versatile. The one turn to arouse the rlslbles was furnished by a little colored boy, Walter Broomfleid. A discordant orchestra accompaniment ex ploded the aspirant's equanimity, which brought forth storms of laughter from the audience, but the lad succeeded admirably in turning the Joke on Huster and bis bunch, for be cam up Ilka a win ner and let them play to suit themselves down in their own little ysrd while ha reeled off the steps apparently uncon scious of their existence.

Bandmaster Innes has not yet. forwarded the names of the soloists, but has written twice to caution the management to get a cannon which he needs In the "Peace and War." HOWARD JOINS OMAHA TEAM Omaha Gets the) Center Fielder and the Renrke Roster is New Complete.
