Island on Viaduct. ASKS LATTER TO PaY PORTION OF COST Faads for Y. M. C. A. Are rre. tleally Raised ThanksalTlna Ob. sered by Protectant Churches. Villon Pacific engineers are still working on the data to be secured prior to the drawing of th plans for the construction of a viaduct across the tracks from U to Y streets. Lines have been run and somo stakes set, but the work on the bridge Plans proper has not begun. There Is to be no long delay In this matter, but Just at present the Union Pacific Is holding back to see what the Rock Island Intends doing. In case the Rock Island desires to have a viaduct built so that Its trains can get under it at tho south of the Swift plant the Urea already run will be abandoned and a viaduct with a longer westerly approtich will be built. It is understood that the Union Pacific has re ferred this matter to the Rock Island officials and an early reply is expected. Should the Rock Island decide not to pay a portion of the cost of the viaduct, then the Union Pacific Is to go ahead and con struct a bridge as originally Intended with the west terminus near Twenty-seventh and Y streets. The Rock Island now has a track laid to the southwest corner of the property owned by Swift, but this would be of no particular service In ease the Union Pacific built a bridge with a short approach. A decision In this matter Is looked for some time this week. In this connection the rumor la again current that when tho U street viaduct Is com pleted the Q street structure Is to bo abandoned. No definite Information can be obtained on this subject, but those who claim to know declare that the Q street viaduct will not be abandoned, no matter how many other bridges are built across the tracks. Trouble A boat Curbing. Somo of the property owners on J street, between Twenty-third and Twenty fourth, are taking exceptions to the snap Judgment of the city council at the meet ing Monday night In relation to the nar rowing of J street. An ordinance was first Introduced desig nating the curb, lines on J street from Twenty-fourtn west to Twenty-eventh. This was reported on favorably and then the document was amended to read from Twenty-third street to Twenty-seventh. As the ordinance was then passed under a suspension of the rules, the property owners who opposed narrowing the street say that they were not given an oppor tunity to file a protest. Under the or dinance the street for this one block will be forty feet In wtdth. Bright and early on Tuesday morning, before the mayor's signature on the ordi nance was hardly dry. the curbs at Twenty-fourth and J streets were set out so as to make the thoroughfare forty feet wide Instead of sixty feet. Streets north of I street Intersecting with Twenty-fourth have been narrowed on account of the paving, but It was announced by the council some time ago that neither I. J or K street would be narrowed. So far 1 street has not been narrowed and K street will not be, but J street has been, much to the disgust of somo of the owners of property. Fnad Pmeleally Raised. Secretary Charles Marsh of the Young Men's Christian association said last even ing: "We can report progress. Up to this evening we have raised $?.275 f the $2.50f needed. There has been some little delay In the receipt of subscriptions from the packing houses. Today we expect that these institutions will donate to our cause. In case the balance Is not made up by the packers we will raise enough elsewhere to proceed with the Improvements we have In view." Mr. Marsh and members of the associa tion are well pleased with the liberal sup port given the Institution by the business men of South Omaha and desire to express their thanks. Just as soon as arrange- merits can be made the new gymnasium building will be sturted and the Interior of tho building at 413 North Twenty-fourth street will be fitted up for the use of the association Day Observed Quietly. Thanksgiving day was quietly observed In South Omaha. There was little If any busi ness transacted and after the noon hour but few persons were to be seen on the streets. The packing houses were closed down and the receipts at the stock yards were light. At the city Jail the ten prls- i oners were given a turkey dinner with cof fee and pie on the side, for which "they appeared to be truly thankful. Not an ar rest was made by the police during the day or evening. Union Thanksgiving services were held by the Protestant churches In the forenoon at the First Methodist Episcopal chuivh. Twenty-third and N streets. The church whs well filled and the music rendered had been prepared especially for the occasion. Rev. W. D. Stambaugh, pastor of the Lef ler Methodist Episcopal church of Albright, delivered the sermon, lie spoke. In part, as follows: "Giving thanks always for all things, unto God and the Father, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ." We need not rehearse tne history or our : national Thanksgiving day. Neither do I consider it worm wime to review me nis tory of cur prosperity us a nation and u people. We are acquainted with our geo graphical areas and financial resources. All of these will avail us little if we are not able to be a arateful people, not only on the national Thanksgiving day, hut as a hnbit of our lives Innate within the char acter. If I correctly understand the purpose of this day. It is to pause amidst the busy ac tivities of life and in a special manner render to God devout thanksgiving tor Ills mercies and cultivate the spirit uf grati tude In Its growth In our character. And this must be practlcul as well as senti mental. The apostle exhorts In another place: "In everything give thanks." If we consult Webster as to the meaning of thanks, he refers us to the word "think," which is deiined "to reflect, to ponder, to remember, to meditate." And that "thank" Is an ex pression of gratitude. And the command or exhortation of the text would have these In continuance. No human being is wholly destitute of reason, for thanksgiving. The siirlt of ingratitude Is one of the most de based of sins tho Soul can be posstssed of. While the spirit of gratitude Is one of the most noble. We are so prone to look on the dark side and forget the bright. Our eyes are so fixed on Old adversities that we forget the prosperities. We wrote Bishop McCabe a doleful letter once, and he replied: "Look on the bright side, brother." We wrote hack: "What If there Is no bright side?" Soon came th reply: "Uel busy polishing up a side then." If ever a man was qualified to speajc if gratitude, it was Paul. His life had bee: one of deep shadows and bright light. Yet, lie gloried In his Infirmities. Nothing so dark but there Is reason for thanksgiving. Be of good cheer until God dies. There Is no occasion to act as If the universal fu neral had begun. Especially the Christian has no reason to go about In mourning. The poet C'arpnian asked Haydn how it was his music always had a cheery ring to It. His reoTy was: "I ctnnot make it otherwise. I writs according to my thoughts When I think upon Gud. my heart I so full of Joy that the uolea dance and leap as it were from my pen. And since God has given me a cheerful heart, It will be lur demed me If I serve Him with a cheerful spirit." Along with the Thanksgiving spirit and deeds of kindness should go acts of char ity.

Four degrees above sero was the record of the temperature at Omaha Thursday morning. Wednesday night was clear, cool and bracing, and the morning dawned Just as tho kindly Colonel Welch predicted It would, cool and crisp. The wind iiad died , down early Wednesday evening and j scarcely a breath of air stirred during the I night; hence the cold temperature wns not so perceptible. While Omalta was reveling In a 4 plus temperature, up at Valentino xero was the mark. North Platte showed even with Omuha, at 4 above; Cheyenne, g above; Des Moines, above; Denver. 12 above; Rapid City, 10 above, and Sioux City had I the nerve to go 2 below xero. Reports for the farther north were very meager, but sufficient Is ascertained from the scat tering reports that no storm conditions are prevailing anywhere that need cause the slightest alarm. The local lorecast was for warmer Thurs day night, with fair and warmer Friday, with Increasing cloudiness Friday night and warmer. The low temperature of Tuesday and Wednesday nights was sufficient to put a thin crust of Ice over the ponds and lakes of this vicinity and for several feet out from the Missouri river banks. At Bemls park and out at the Mercer pond, at Forty third and Ixard streets, the Ice was suffi ciently thick to permit the youngsters to enjoy skating all of Thanksgiving day. The Ice thickness on the ponds was nearly two and a half Inches and It didn't thaw any during the duy, cither. The sudden cold snap continues to be a menace to good time on the eastern rail road lines running Into Omaha. All trains which come from Iowa were from one to two hours late Thursday morning. The Missouri Pacific from Kansas City was reported two hours lnte, with no special reason but the cold. Engineers and engines are Just like other people, they have to get usd to this cold before they can make time. Many much colder days than today will find the trains running on time. GERMAN FAIR GETS THRONG Afternoon unit Evening- ut Jthrmarkt Made Memorable by the Merry frond. Thursday was a big day at the Platt deutsch Jahrmarkt at Washington hall. At 2 o'clock, when the hall was opened for the day, the Germans began to come and by S o'clock the hall was crowded to Its capaclt. This conditljn con Inuel through out the afternoon and evening. All the German societies of Sarpy, Douglas and Washington counties were present, and many cume from Pottawattamie county, Iowa, and from Davenport and Avoca. People who wore not of German descent mingled with the throng and participated in the merrymaking. There was music b(- Eggers' band both afternoon and evenirrg. also singing by the Omaha Manr.erchor and gymnastic ex-i hlbltlcms by the Southslde Turners. The Germans are above all a social peo ple. No one can think otherwise who has visited the garden on the second floor, known as "Unter den Linden." Here whole families sit and sup their beer and eat sauerkraut and Wienerwursts, feuch table Is shaded by real linden trees, which hold sweet memories to a man born In the Fatherland. What a happy lot these Ger mans are, think the Americans who tarry for a while In the garden. The museum, under the management of Otto Ntederhauser. was a popular place Thursday. Those who went stayed a long tlmo to wonder at the quaint relics shown on the walls. One of the most antiquated specimens Is the apple which Eve gave to Adam, and It is yet so perfect that Father Adam's teethmarks can be seen by close observance. Perhaps n hundred curious things are to be seen In this wonderland of the olden time. NEW ROLLER SKATING SEASON Sport Resumed at Auditorium with Good Attendance and Excel, lent Prospects. The second roller skating season at the Auditorium was opened yesterday with two merry crowds of skaters who covered the new hard maple floor afternoon and even ing. Although the new floor will bo further sandpapered and made even more pleasant for the skaters, it proved its excellent skating properties yesterday. Dimmlck's orchestra accentuated the poetry of motion on roller skates with a program of popular selections. Manager Gnlan announced he has a num ber of skating novelties on the tapis for patrons of the Auditorium rink. Prof. Franck and daughter of Minneapolis, who were at the rink lust seauon, will be here soon. Next week a potato race will be put on and something new in the way of a live duck race will be in vogue. An Instructor for the women will be here in a few days. It Is suggested that women who are learn ing to skate or wish to excell in the sport patronise the afternoon sessions, when spe cial advantages for them will be provided. Mr. Glllan also stated he intends to foster correct and artistic skating more this (sea son. Yesterday afternoon's crowd num- ' be red no, while in the evening a crowd of over i.iwo was on hand. SOUTH DAK0TAN CREDULOUS Pays Companion's Hallruad Far to Omaha and Roys Him Coal, bat Gets Mo Job. A. J. Waters poured out whole showers of credulity and confidence, not unmixed with good hard coin, on a total stranger yesterday. Ho was in South Dakta at the time. The stranger told him that his father was a rich implement dealer of Omaha and that If Waters would agree to pay the fare to Omaha he would see to It that his father would give him u Job In the Imple ment house. o Waters paid the fare for both to Omaha. When they arrived here the enterprising stronger satd to Waters: "I don't exactly like to brace up against the old man look ing like this. Now, If you would only get me a coat to wear it would look a lot bet ter." 8o Waters bought the coat for 10, and the stranger went in search of thj "old man." go far as Waters knows be is still aeaichlng. The police are at a loss to know how to classify this offense. It is surely a breach of confidence, but Waters gave him the money on the promise that he would try to get lilm a place to work In Omahu. Harry B. Davis, undertakes Xei. 1X3. BEFORE THEJEOPLL'S BAR Jitlfe Berka Ditpenm Jnttici with th Soft Fedal. MARY DOE HEARS CRY TO MOTHER Oldest Inhabitant und areful Ob. server Puy Their Itespeets to the Court of the Proletariat. The Thanksgiving spirit pervaded the po lice station from the basement, where Caterer Billy Huston eonkM the Thanks giving dinner for the prisoners, to the second floor, where Judge Berka dispensed Justice with a soft pedal. The morning's exercises were started in the Jail office, where Desk Sergeant lieavey read to the Jail attaches an edltorlul In The Bee on the subject, "Suggestions for Better Muni cipal Government," Except In a few Instances, whero the offenses were of a serious character, the prisoners crraigned before the people's bar were all discharged by , the police magi strate, who Hid the offending ones to go and sin no more and be thankful with the list of humanity. The cno really amusing incident of the morning's session of the people's bar oc curred when John Holmar, an old denf man. was discharged on the charge of drunkenness. "DON'T GET DRUNK ANY MORE!" shouted the police Judge in toneshat were heard by "Mary Doe," wiio was Just de scending the police court stairs. "I WON'T." replied Mrs. Doe, In equally loud tones, thinking the advice directed to her. The unexpected response from the stair way produced a most humorous effect. The various prisoners left the court room with a feeling of thankfulness in their hearts. Ancient and Receptive Ones. After the morning police court grist had been disposed of the Careful Observer and Oldest InhabltHnt, who attend the people's , bar every Thanksgiving morning. ap proached the Judge's desk and exchanged greetings of the day. The police Judge always dips into a vein of philosophy when he meets these exponents of kindness and brotherly love. "Do you know, Judge, there are lots of things we should be thankful for, If we only take a little time to reflect. I was telling my wife this morning we should be thankful we were not prostrated by j the heat Inst summer, that our chickens come home to rcost every evening, that ; we Jiave half a ton of hard coal left from last winter, that our country cousins sent us a barrel of apples and stayed at home i themselves that our hote was not burned ! down during the year, that the stove does not smoke, that we have voting machines, I that my lodge dues are paid ahead, that Willlo has not fallen down the cistern. that the gasoline stove has not exploded, and thut we have a new lamp post on our street," remarked the one who observes men and affairs. "Yes," answered the police Judge, "we should be thaVikful for the sunshine, tho air wo breathe, the reduced price of gas; thankful for the prospects of a greater Omaha and thankful we are able to be thankful." Then everyone left the iioople's bar and the Janitor closed up. Outsldo a row of sparrows lined a telephone wire and chirped as if In thankfulness to the Creator. Break All Weenie.

AT THE PLAY HOUSES Iralnla." ut the Royd. Mr. Louis James and companv. In "Vlrgi.i lua" a tragedy in six acts, by James Sheridan know los. The cast: Virginia Miss Aphle Jsmes fervla Miss Annie Mane 8eha f-r remale slave y. Miss Keln Jones lpl'"us Mr. Norman Hackett Ap,lus Claudius Mr. James A. Voting Dentatus Mr. Charles Stednian Calus Claudius Mr. Harry C. Mm ton Mihiltorlus Mr. Williarri L. 1 home Marcus Mr. Hatrv MacFavden 1-otius .Mr. Milton Noh.rs. Jr. 3"s Mr. V. N. rHsrk Juleilus Mr. Harry K. Lt1l r Mr. Louis James Vlrgmius The tragic story of Virginia and her de voted father still has a hold on the popular heart, as Is attested by the presence of a goodly number of people St the Boyd last night to witness the presentation of this fine play by Mr. Louis James and his com pany. Mr. Knowies seized an Incident that has Its roots deep In human sympathy, and decks if with rare flowers of poetic fancy, till It stands forth an undlmmed creation of tragic force. It enlists as few others of the classic tragedies do, the element so In definitely defined as ""heart Interest." and holds the sympathy of all from first to last for the fond father and tender daughter. In this It has the flrst and chiefest element of greatness. Mr. James Is all that might be wished In Vlrglnius. He Is tho fond, Indulgent father, the kind and generous friend, the brave soldier and the loyal citien of Rome. More over, he is the man with sufficient of cour age to protect his daughter from a ravisher even at the expense of her life and his. A splendid figure, a voice of power, Mr. James very happily unites the old and new school of acting. He has had training and ex perience In both and brings to his use the best of each. He well deserves the rank he has attained among America's great actors. Norman Hackett as Iclllius Is a thor oughly satisfying actor. He reads his lines with splendid effect, getting the full mean ing of the pregnant sentences written for the part, and yet without bombast, and commands without posing. James A. Young enacts the thankless role of the libidinous tyrant with excellent taste. His voire, manner and bearing are those of the arro gant, heartless and truculent libertine. Charles Stedman gives to the role of Den tatus a due dignity, and speaks his words with uncommon otert and direction. Miss Aphle James, daughter of the star, and the second of the family to adopt her father's profession, makes a most sweet and winsome ( Virginia. Young and full of the buoyant life of fresh, Innocent girl hood, she Is Virginia personified. The oth ers In the cast are good, the entire company being strong in every regard and well cal culated for the line of plays being offered. At the matinee "Ingomar, the Barbar ian," was offered, Mr. James nppearing In the name part and Miss Terese Deagle as Parthonla. The comedy was very well re ceived. The engagement was for the one day only. "The Cilrl from Kays" at the Kruv. Two of the large audiences of the season assembled nt the Krug theater to welcome "The Olrl from Kays" yesterday, a special .matinee being given. This piece has lost nothing of its original attractiveness through being transferred from the higher to the lower price theaters. Its music Is Just as crisp and sparkling as ever, and tho fun It exudes Is Just as funny. Bobby North has the role piade famous by Sam Bernard, that of Max Iloggenhelmer, who was so rich he couldn't be vulgar, and 1 gives the eccentricities of the Individual 1 much life and snap. He has made a careful study of the rolo, and inds In It ample opportunity for expression. It Is a capital Piece of work he does The "girl" this season Is Llla Blow, who also has charms of person and a manner that Is decidedly fetching. She manages her affair with Hoggenhelmer In a most artistic and diplo matic way. Paul George Decker Is good In the essentially silly part of Fitsthistle, and Kathleen Clifford Is a clever sou brette. Miss Morton looks well nnd acts well as Norah Chalmers, but Joseph Tuohy falls a little short of the mark as Harry Gordon. The company Is lurge and splen didly equipped with costumes and scenery, nnd the piece Is well produced In every detail. "The Girl from Kays" stays the rest of the week, with a matinee on Satur day. Announcements of the Theaters. Florence Roberts has been looming big as a star in the west for a long time and Is now about to try for a recognition In the enst. She will go Into New York early In the coming year, for a run at one of the Broadway theaters, presenting the new play in which she will be seen at the Boyd theater this evening. "Ann Lamont" Is by Paul Armstrong, author of "Tho Heir to the Hoorah," and has been said to be his best so far. - It was first produced early In October, but has drawn forth much favor able comment by Its strength. It is briefly commented upon us a "modern play of strategy and Insistent dramatic Interest." It gives the unquestionably gifted woman a fine opportunity to exhibit her ability. Those who remember Miss Roberts from her visit to Omaha last season well know what a treat Is in store during this engage ment. Her company Is a strong one, spe cially picked for the New York run, and everything is in keeping. Miss Roberts will be at the Boyd Friday and Saturday even ings and a matinee on Saturday. Miss Eva Lung has so far recovered from the effects of her injury as to make It posi tively certain that she will be In the cast of "L'nder the Red Robe" at the Bui wood next week. Hhe will have the role of Rene de Cocheforet. In the, meantime Miss Hill is giving very satisfactory performances of Lillian Weslbrook In "The Banker's Daughter," which will remain on till after Saturday night. Lots of Trouble for Fonr Dollars. Adolph Kindt, at the Lyons hotel, lost about H at tho rooms of a woman by the name of Lillian Whitlow, 1219 Capitol ave nue. He was positive that the woman had his money and he complained bitterly of her treatment of him. She la said to have given 12 back after tho wrangle. He was not satisfied and the quarrel began again. Then Walter Whitlow, the white woman's colored consort, came In and hit ths grumbling Adolph Kindt in the right optic. This caused some swelling to the eye and the arrest of ail the participants. Walter Whitlow was charged with assault, Lillian Whitlow with larceny from the person and Kindt wlih boing drunk. Police Called to Settle Trouble. Louis Koeher, 1112 North Seventeenth, a workman at the King brewery, was ar ,.n tho fiimnlulnt of his wife that he hud thrown her out of the house. This Kochvr and his four children stoutly deny, lie admits, however, mat the family has not been at peace for the last live years. J The captain saw that the man was in a 1 desperate frame ot mind and thought It I best to keep him at the Jail during the night. No charges were booked against him md he was retained only as a pie- ' cautionary measure. LOCAL BREVITIES j water J' 1 uuiBi in .. vii ..wiiiiuu, llol Douglas, at t o'clock last night.

Tliero are three wisiies wnlch are In my heart today for the club women of America, and wnlch, If gratiited, will be a leaven wnlch will go far to muko a new ie.i..ii,g ot tne bum of the Christ-child and the coming of the new year. First, I wlsii that we may study and learn happiness. It Is not, as we have believed, an Inheritance, a blrtnrlght. No, it is a science to be studied and practiced, like anv other grace or accomplisnment. As I tore off my quotation calendar this morning, 1 read this a good omenr "Blessed are the happiness makers: tliey represent the best forces of civilisation, 'i . . aie to the heart and home what the honeysuckle is to the door over which It climbs." There are bitter heart breaking sorrows for all of us. It Is true, and we must bend to them at times; but the minor ills of life, the dally pin-pricks, tho usual disappointments, may lie conquered by a persistent taking hold of one s self and a ! .... hrlirht Rile If We resolve eo eec win ,- - , practice laughter instead of weening, In a generation there will be no need for hos pitals for the Insane. The second wish is thut the club women may have work, not only the home duties, the loving ministrations of wifo. niother. teacher and friend, but a bit also nf the world's work, mere is no ij 7 there Is no education of books equal to It. there Is no satisfaction to be compared to that which one feels in having been even the smallest factor In the world building process-work, cheerful, happy work, with the hands, head and heart. The third desire of my soul Is that the Club women of America mav come more full to believe and realize the high mls slm of the federation: that 11 may . dawn upon each and every one of you that this union of forees is here, not a hmcnlng. not for a fw '-rs. but a part of 1 he plan of the world; that It is a great, helpful, uptift'ng Influence for the making of t he k iigdoni. We have not united In tills great union for fame, for notoriety, for discontent. We have joined hands to work for better homes for better laws, for better care of children and dependents, for belter schools, for the honest, systematic, scien tific upbuilding of a great nation. May the three wishes he granted-the shining of the spirit, the useful world s work, the abiding faith in the federation; und may "tela be trulv said of us and all of us. With reiolelng for the past and courage The American Federation of Labor In convention at Pittsburg last week passed the following resolution which was Intro duced by Thomas I. Kldd of the Amal gamated Wood Workers' International union: Whereas, Various organizations of women. Including some fratrnally afllii'.ted with the American Federation of I,aiKr, are seeking to have the government Inves tigate "the social and economic condition of women employed In manufacturing and commercial pursuits;" and, in Industry" is one of vital concern and Buy Hair at Auction?

Such substantial support of one of th" nrtst Important movements yet Inaugurated by the rlub women will mean much and Is appreciated by the women In proportion. It will doubtless be Interesting to muuy club women to know that Mrs. Webster Glynes, president of the Society of American Women In London, which cherishes tho much discussed scheme of establishing scholarships In English universities fur American girls, was for five yeurs presi dent of gorosls of New York. As Miss Ella Diets Clymer, she was chairman of the advisory board of the General Feder ation of Women's Clubs from 1S88 to IKW, and did much toward perfecting the organi sation . of that ! body. In , the December "Keystone" Miss Louisa B. Poppenhelm, corresponding secretary of the General Federation, tells briefly of her recent visit to London and her entertainment by the Society of American Women, an organi sation of 160 members, and It Is largely duo to Mrs. Glynes' loyalty and . strong executive ability that the society has kept In touch with the mother organisation in , America.
