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. Maale City Gossip.

FOUR DbGHEES ABJVE ZERO
Temperature Goes Lower, but the
Mrong Wind Sub
aides.
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.

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

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.

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

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

not satisfied and the quarrel began again.

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

WOMAN II CLUB AND CHARITY
Mrs. Barah Piatt Decker, president oi
tho General Federation of Women's clubs,
extends the following greeting to cliu
women through the December Federation
Bulletin:
j rry Christmas and a Happy New
Year.
How shall we help to bring these to the
world? 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

Resolved by the American Federation of
Labor, That we Indorse this movement for

Such substantial support of one of th"

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
