To the, Editor of The Bee: If a town U hopelessly provincial and enjoy It, then the advertising of that fact la doubtless correct If a city of 125,000 people, aspiring to met ropolitan honors, has not yet shed Its bucollo garments It is a question of good unM ci n whAihsr jmi hdil hMt t P 1 nn ourselves. Ths visit of a high class opera company, presenting one of the most difficult com positions In modern dramatic music, Is noteworthy event In every sense. The ac count In two newspapers here of the per formance at the Boyd last night Indicates that a circus has been here and that most of ths clowns were In the audlenoe. The re port of The Bee was alone sane and sen sible. . If pur people do not know how to dross when attending grand opera "a de cent regard for the opinions of mankind" ought to shield us from the mean criticism of our neighbors and this we may surely expect, wken they read about It. I have never read a more deadly character assas sinaMoh'artlcl than, those which appeared In the two before- mentioned nameless pub lications. It was an. attack on cultured Omaha which will be teceived with howls of delight by Kansas City and Denver and Sfbox'plty and other centers of sweetness and light. And besides the report Is, In spots,, grossly Inaoourata. There were some who .brought their lunch In paper sacks and did not go out to a restaurant.

OPPOSE THE CHARTER BILL Prospect Hill Improvers Adopt Reso. lotion Denouncing; the Pend ing Measure, The Prospect Hill Improvement club at Its meeting Wednesday night passed reso lutions opposing the passage In the legis lature of the bill providing for changes In the charter of the city of Omaha. It was the unanimous opinion that the bill had been twisted out of all semblance to the form in which It was when It left the charter revision committee. At that time the club passed a resolution favoring the passage of the bill, but sentiment has changed aa amendments have been made. Ths resolution reads' a follows: Whereas, We have learned that the city charter, as amended and compiled by the citizens of the city of Omaha by represent atives of different Improvement clubs and representatives of different organisations materially interested la, il, welfare of the olry,' h&s''been chaitgeffr andr'rr Whereas, We have learned -that the city charter has been- so amended' as to- be wholly in the Interests of city contractors and to Increase the salaries of city offi cials and employee so as to become a bur den to the taxpayers of the city; be it Resolved, By the members of the Pros pect Hill Improvement club that we are, under existing circumstances, opposed to any change In the present charter . until such time as the citisens of this city shall be granted the right to make Its charter by a charter convention. Be H- further, Resolved, That a copy of this resolution be sent to each representative of this county In the legislature. The resolution was Introduced by Chsrles Unltt and a spirited speech In Its favor was made by J. W. Van Gilder.; A resolution was passed Inviting O. M. Hitchcock to address the club on the sub ject of postal savings banks when he should return from Washington, also one Inviting Judge Slabaugh to speak before the club on civic Improvement.

Harry Burr, a 17-year-old lad, was brought back from Chicago last evening by Detective Mitchell. Burr is wanted In Omaha for panning five forged checks upon business houses of this city. In all cases he forged the name of his father, A H. Burr. The checks ranged In value from 16:40 to J12.85, and the total of them all Is $37.85. The checks were passed some time ago, but Harry Burr left for Chicago Im mediately and was arrested there on a charge of forgery. The officers here heard of his arrest in that city and Detective Mitchell went after the lad. When Mitchell arrived the boy was on trial, but when the Omttha officer asked to have the lad turned over to him for trial in Omaha the Judge sentenced Burr to one hour In Jail. As soon as Burr served1 the hour and was released he was rearrested by Mitchell and placed aboard a train for Omaha. . Klbocan on Trial.

PEOPLE WANT TO KNOW THE LOCATIOH Citisens Express Themselves aa Op posed te Voting In the Dark en Proposition and Ask the Connell te Speak. The coming election, Aprlt 4, at which several bond propositions will be submitted, Involves one question which It Is expected will grow In Importance and Interest until the day of the election. That la the prob able location of the proposed city hall. "If those interested In voting bonds for this proposition want to see It carry, they must let the people know beforehand something about where the structure will be located," said a cltlsen yesterday. In this connection the proposition to re model the old high school building Is being revived. There Is a sentiment favoring the purchase of this structure by the city coun cil and having It fixed over for a city hall. It Is contended by those who favor this Idea that no better site or better building could be secured. One citisen says: "I am in favor of the city hall bonds only on the condition that I know where the building Is to be. That must be stated to the people's satisfaction before the election Is held. Otherwise, I as sure you, the city hall bonds will be de feated by a decisive vote, and we will go along here for another term of years pay ing high rent for an unsatisfactory build ing, the present quarters, of course, being too small for the olty'a use. "Just let the council apeak out In this matter. Let it be known that the old high school, which can be bought for a modest sum, will be used. Or, let It be understood that any site satisfactory to a majority of the people will be decided upon. This can as well be stated now by the council as after the election, and It would probably save a lot of trouble, too." There were many who held out hopes that the proposed new fire hall would be built on the site occupied by the old high school building If that were purchased by the city. Another site has been purchased, however, and that somewhat lessens the de sirability of the old building as a city hall site. However, the council will have to de cide the matter some time, and there Is ap parently a popular demand for the decision at an early date, that the people may know something about what they are voting for when they vote for the city hsJl bonds. Wedding; at Judge Levy's. At 7 o'clock last evening the marriage of Miss Jennie D. Levy and Mr. Julius Gold stein was solemnised at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jacob Levy, 2221 N street. A large number of friends witnessed the ceremony, which was per formed by Rabbi Cohn of Omaha. A din ner was served later In' the evening, and the bridal couple took a late train for the east for a wedding Journey. The groom is well known In business circles In Nebraska City, and the bride Is as well known In South Omaha, having lived here for several years. Stranger Dying; nt Hospital. A stranger walked Into the police sta tion yesterday and ' aked, fo medical assistance. He gave his name as Albert Rudley and claimed to hall from East St. Louis. He was taken Jo the city hospital In Brewer's ambulance, and last night was reported In a dying condition. Dr. John Koutsky said It was a critical case. The authorities are trying. ,fo., locate! some of his relatives. Tho stranger was about 30 rears old. . Alnmni Association Officers.

When acting as Nature designed they should, the organs of digestion do then work regularly and Un consciously, like a perfect machine. Those who use Mlo-na do not have a sallow complexion, sunken cheeks, nor flabby flesh. Their skin has a ruddy glow, the eyes are bright, the breath sweet and the step elastic. In short, the users of Ml-o-na have the maximum of good health and are plump,' rosy and robust. Nine-tenths of all sickness comes from a weak stomach, causing loss of flesh, shat tered nerves, flatulency, heartburn, sick headaches, backaches, spots before the eyes, rheumatic troubles, and general weak ness and debility. Take a Ml-o-na tablet before each meal, and all irritation, con gestion and inflammation In the stomach or bowelB will be immediately soothed and relieved. In fact, the stomach will become well and strong and the whole system filled with strength and vitality. Even If a weakened stomach has brought you to a chronic stage of 111 health, where life Is one long drawn out pain, do not de spair. Mi-o-na will effect a cure if the simple directions in each 60c box are faith fully followed. Read the guarantee given by Sherman A McConnell Drug Co., corner 16th and Dodge streets., Omaha, with every package of Ml-o-na they sell.. They pledge themselves In this guarantee to refund the money, should Mt-o-na fall to help. rirf. orchard, treasurer; Jesse Clark, sergeant-at-arms. The association now has forty members, and win meei bhi day evening at the new high school to lis ten to a report of the committee on enter tainment. Want Streets Flushed. A general request has been made by the business men for the flushing of the streets by the fire department, and this probably will be done within a few days. The streets have accumulated a consider able amount of filth and mud during the last few days, and nothing cleans them as quickly as the firemen with the hose turned on. The country roads are com mencing to get In fairly good shape, and the farmers, who came to town numerously yesterday because of It being bargain day, said that hauling large loads was compara tively an easy task. Farmers are looking forward to the paving of West Q street. Those from the south end are greatly pleased with the paving on South Twenty fourth. Waartc City Gossip.
