Tho Omaha police may ret bo gtven a
chance to be compared In efficiency with
tho departments of cltlen of tho samo tlie
as this. The Increased number of tul-"
cldes and deaths by asphyxatlon have
caused police sunceons to bemoan their
lack of equipment and It Is mgRested
that a pulmotor be added to tho regular
equipment used by the physicians.
Commissioner Ryder Is strongly In
favor of one of the machines and he says
that If ho can secure money enough,
one will be purchased by tho department.
The machine Is iv German Invention that
produces artificial respiration and often
saves lives, where the efforts of human
hands are useless.
Police Surgeon Harris has voiced his
need of such an Instrument and last
night he declared that In the case of
the young French lad, who died Inst
Thursday morning, a pulmotor would
probably have saved his 'life.
Kitty Cheatham
Gives Her Concert
In Charming Way
Kitty Cheatham, the distinguished
"dlaeuse," visited Omaha yesterday for
tho second time. Her first appearance
hero was under a concert sorlrs managed
by Mrs. W. W. Turner.
'It Is unfortunate that Miss Cheathnm's
unique rocltals were not better adver
tised, as the artist certainly deserved
much larger audiences, and many Omaha
people, missed a. very delightful and un
usual entertainment.
A great many of her songs were writ
ten especially for Miss Cheatham. Great
arias r Oh, no; much more Interesting to
everybody just charming llttlo bts of
childhood or southern Ufa told In story
and song.
Her, children's songs are nil very clover.
In these, whether humorous or otherwise,
tho child's point of view Is almost always
given. This Miss Cheatham brings clearly
to her audience by gesture, facial cxprcs
slon and song, and each ono remembers
that at otic time ho or she was young
and suffered or enjoyed somewhat similar
"Violets," in this group, composed by
Huntington Woodman, was a gem in
sentiment, music and Interpretation
Among the most humorous of these cml
dren's songs may bo mentioned "Vis
itors," by Waddlngton Cooke, and
"Practicing." by Carpenter."
The most interesting part of Ml
Cheatham's recital, however, was the
group of old negro songs and sayings.
This part of tho program was entirely
too short. Mies Cheatham is a southerner
herself and knows tho old plantation
negroes by actual living' among them.
The chants and old melodies that she
songs and are genuine folksongs, and
they abound In tho beautiful minor in-'
tervals and tho -real syncopation that we
seldom hear In these days of blatant
Miss Cheatham would do well to glre
many moro examples of' tlficso vitally In
teresting folksongs.
In speaking of tho use of minor. Miss
Cheatham brings to mind that tho negro's
problem lsnot worked out; that only
when a people's difficulties are solved do
they sing In major harmonies.
Miss Cheatham feels that the colored
man', with his Inimitable humor, pathos
and mimetic powers,- is using these pow
ers too much to follow other people,
rather than for working within, and de
veloping individually, as ho should.
Tho third part of the program was made
up of many widely different numbers.
"When Mallndv Sings." a recitation writ
ten for Miss Chealhnm by Paul Lawrence
Dunbar (the only genulno negro to attain
any literary prominence), was very artis
tically Interpreted. "Punchinello" was
tho most dramatic number on tho pro
gram, and "The Little Gray Lamb," by
Sullivan, a request number, was full of
beauty. "Why Adam Sinned," "Don't Be
What You Ain't," "Tho Elf Man," by John
Kendrlck Bangs'. "Matilda," a humorous
song by Usa I.elunann. and "The Owl
and tho Pussy Cat," by Gcorgo Ingraham,
were among tho more humorous, and all
wero given In Miss Cheatham's own
charming manner. Although a number of
the selections were tho same that she
gave In Omaha at her previous visit, they
were nonetheless Interesting for that
It would have been very delightful to
havo heard Miss Cheatham in her Tschat
kowski program, including some of tho
Hoffman fairy tales, or a group of Paul
or Debussy Interpretations. However,
as tlx), dlseuse camo to Omaha upon
rather short notice, and was not In com
pany with an orchestra, we can but hope
for ono of these at some future time. Miss
I P. Jones added much to the evening's
entertainment by her sympathetic and
beautiful accompaniments. II. M. It.

Five more of the twelve Indictments
returned by the grand Jury on Friday
evening were made public In Council
Bluffs yesterday, the accused persons ail
being securely locked up in the county
Tho. Indictment attracting the greatest
amount of public Interest was returned
against the Omaha architectural engineer,
whose name was given ns William C.
Gott, but which numerous witnesses be
fore the grand jury declared was William
C. Gott. He Is charged with bigamy.
Tho witness who guve the most materia
testimony was Miss Lorctto Damahy, a
young Omaha girl, who caused his ar
rosL shortly after her marriage to him
on Scptomber 2$, believing his statements
concerning his social life and that he
was an unmarried man.
Sho told the grand Jurors thnt sho
first met Gott during the latter part of
August or tho first part of Sepcmber, and
that the attraction was mutual. Bho testi
fied that on the afternoon of September
2S they camo to Council Bluffs and were
united In marriage. A fortnight later
sho discovered he was already married
and had a young wife living In Council
Bluffs In a homo which ho had recently
provided for her, Tho discovery was
made when wife No. 1 called upon her
and told the story of her marriage of
Gott, who had given the name of Gotz.
Several Omaha men and women went
before the grand Jury and testified that
they were neighbors of Mr. and Mrs.
Gott when they lived at 2572 and 2G74
Spauldtng street, Omaha, confirming the
testimony of Mrs. Gott, who told of her
married llfo with Gott. Gott's bond was
fixed at J2.0W. He Is still In the county
Miss Bfdge Tells of
Italian Influence on
. the American Art
"The, Italian Influence on tho American
Art" was the subject, of the program
glvon by tho Society of FIno Arts at Its
meeting Thursday morning. Mrs. Leonard
Everett had ehargo of tho program and
was assisted by Miss Caroline Dodge.
Miss Dodge first spoke of tho work of
Caryl Coleman, whose pictures usually
bear some classical group of buildings as
background, his fanciful conception of
"Christ Walking on the Soa" being a
pleasant exception to his architectural
subjects. Tho chtef artist under discussion
was Ellhu Vedder, whose remarkable
imagination has been the Inspiration for
the canvases which havo mado him fa
mous. Mr. Veddor often uses a simple
composition or sketch ns a themo which
he embroiders and encircles with mystery.
Thls-"was very clearly shown by Miss
Dodge, who presented a sketch of a
pathetic old colored woman a vender,
whom tho artist passed In his dally walks.
This sketch with its turbaned head sug
gested tho picture of tho Cumacan Sibyl,
nnd later the splendid head of Lazarus,
which Is perhaps tho moat popular of
Veddcr's works.
To tho art world nnd tho critics Veduer
Is best known by his remarkable Illustra
tions for the Itubalynt of Omar Khayyam.
Mrs. Everett showed, many beautiful
slides from tho pages of ,tho book, reciting
tho text of the poem on each picture, a
charming proof of the suitability of the
Vedder Illustrations to this material.

company still a creditor of the general
contractors to the extent of J3.000. So
far as Is known, Morrow still had the
other $10,000 In his pooket when he left
for Baltimore early last evening.
When Mr. Morrow's company becamo
surety for Caldwell Drake tho gen
eral contractors signed an agreement
that whenever he should chooo to do
so. Morrow might assume charge of
their contraot and collect any money
duo thm. Last Friday, when Morrow
announced to the county commissioners
that ho desired to exercise hi privilege
of collecting money du tho contractors,
the surety company representative said
he wished to expend the money In
liquidating obligations to the msrblo
company and local creditors of the
Morrow Won't TnlU.
Just before ho left for Baltimore. Mor
row wns asked what paymonta, If any,
had been mado to local creditors out of
tho $50,000 payment made i him by
tho comity. He would make no state
ment. So far as could be learned last
night, none wero made. They npprox

Tho county still holds WH.000 of tho
original $123,000, which was 15 per cent
of tho total contract price of the build

County Clerk Frank Dowcv paid tho
warrant to Morrow. Doputy County At
torney Mngney had advised him that the1
statute undor which John W. Towlo had
asked suspension of payment for ten
days does not apply to this contract.
For nearly two years Morrow has had
on file In the county clerk's office two
assignments for $20,000 each against
Caldwell & Drake's money In the
county's hands. Before paying tho war
rant Dowoy required Morrow to endorse
on these assignments a statement that
no part of the $50,000 should bo applied
to satisfy .them. 9.UI1, so far op Is
known, Morrow.' held -140,000 of the $50,000
when he left tho city.

This is the deliberate opinion of no less ari
authority than Philip Dreesbach, German
Expert and scientist in the Wahl-Henius Insti
tute of Fermentology. He says:
"Beer acted upon by light soon takes tip the very disagreeable,
so-called 'light taste,' and also a rcpulslvo skunk-Ilka odor. Deer
so affected la offcnslvo to the palato of most consumers, and
thero is probably nothing that vlll Influence them moro agnlnst

defect, however, is not always tho bottler's fault, as the con

the consequences must usually be borne by tho bottler."
