fare nf their party to mure than hint at
the di. honesty of any nf its nllioiuls.
Hence It was that, when once HHpecllIc
act of alleged dishon stv was made
public, the suspicion that had lieen
aoouinuluting for years took tangible
form and a volley of accusations wan
precipitated that involved not only
otllcials now in olll"e but some who had
proceeded them. The purpose of this
trial 1 to ascertain whether or not
these suspicions have not been l'l
fouuded. The chief desire is not to
convict the men now charged. It, is
rather to acquit them if the circum
stances will justify it. It is not just to
condemn them in advance, neither Is it
just to ac(tiit them until they have
shown that they deserve acquittal, not
through any technicality of tin. law but
y proofs of Innocence. It is maxim of
the law. it is true, that every man is
innocent until proven guilty, but in
thee caes, while tlie law will probably
technically prevail, the man who ex
pects to simply cheat justice by relying
upon the Inability of his accusers to
prove their charges will not bent con
servo his own ends. If any out of them
fails to prove conclusively hi innocence
he will be condemned. Perhaps he will
ecape punishment from the courts, but
there i a higher tribunal even hereon
earth. It Is the voice of the people.
There Is an expressed determination
everywhere to demise the political
atmosphere, and the accused olllcial
who leaves room for suspicion on the
completion of this trial Is doomed to be
as thoroughly punished as if th art
had found him guilty and inllictcd its
severest penalty. ThU will be by far
the most momentous and interesting
case ever tried in tliu west, and hund
reds of friends will earnestly pray that
the accused may come s ifely and hon
estly out of it with dean records.
It will be remembered that during
the Finyd-Tliuyor contest there was a
great deal of political sentimental gush
as to the acredues4 and inviolability of
American citi.ciiship. Luckily this
spasmodic ellusion of distate for and
horror or the I'oroigni r is only skin
deep, and investigation will show- that
the Amei'lcnni.ed foreigner N not un
worthy oftriisl. Of course America
should be governed by Americans, but
there i many a foreign-born person
who iua, not have con formed to the
perfunctory rules proscribed for ac
quiring oitioiiship, who nourishes n
his loyal heart a more profound and
self-sncrlliring love for thu adopted
country that is doing and promising
so much for him, than exalts the
moth es of many men whose quiilitlcu
tioiisas Americans and citien are
uuiiie-tioncd. Hight here In Lincoln
we now have a councilman .serving his
.second term, of whom it Is alleged that
he has never boon naturalized. It Is
.lames ()"Sheo of the First ward. In

claimed that he became a citl.eii when

Investigated, that Mr. O'Shoo's father
was not naturalled In Des
Moines in lVTH, or at any other
time Mr. O'Shoc is Mill a member of
the council, and no one has been so
bold as t i say that ho Is not a good
American at heart. It is also assorted,
but never made generally known, that
Alexis Halter, formerly a councilman,
did not acquire his eitluuship until af
ter he had become a member of the
council. Mr. Halter Is a Canadian,
and only discovered after his election
that he was not a naturalled Ainorl

hundreds of such cases every year lu
