keeping them back.
Two sets of fours were in advance of

PATRICK AND THOMAS

LINCOLN, Nov. 13.-Elmer E.
Thomas, ex-Senator W. R. Patrick and
Judge Holmes, representing an anti

him a petition asking him to direct the
attorney general to begin quo warranto
proceedings under the Sackett law to
oust Mayor Jim Dahlman and the
members of the Omaha fire and po
lice commission and Chief of Police

The complainants appear to be arm
ed with testimony. At any rate they
make a multiplicity of charges against
various persons for violations of the
law. It is charged that the daylight
saloon law and the Gibson law relating
to the sale of liquors at retail by brew
ers have been violated with impunity,
that gambling is allowed and that 300
joints are in operation where bootleg
ging is conducted.
The complaint charges that T. J.
O'Brien, licensee at the Henshaw, vio
lated the daylight saloon law by sell
ing beer in teacups at 9:20 p. m. It is
charged that Rome Miller repeatedly
violated the same law by selling li
quors after hours in th6 Rome vine
yard. The dates of alleged sales are
It is alleged that Lcntz & Williams,
T. J. Foley, J. J. Sullivan, W. E. Nes
tlehouse and Henry Sherman also vio
lated the daylight saloon law. On Oc
tober 9 it is charged that gambling was
carried on at 1409 Douglas Street

we have been compelled to disappoint
our readers in many things very much
to our regret.
We believe now that everything has

Our carrier system is not yet as we

patrons of the office to promptly no
tify us of anything that is not satis
factory. It is our ambition to make

our friends to co-operate with us in no
tifying us of any inconveniences they

failure of the paper to be delivered. If

Frank Sampson is said to have con
ducted a gambling room in the Murray
hotel September 15. Rome Miller and
O'Brien are charged with having sold
liquors on election day, November 2.
The complaint sets forth that liquors
are sold by women who opwrate dives.
One of these houses is said to exist at
Fourteenth and Jackson. Jcanctte
Williams, 613 South Fourteenth street,
is named as another violator of the
daylight saloon law. Liquors are al
leged t6 have been sold illegally at 31 13
South Eleventh, on Douglas street near
Ninth, at the northeast corner of Elev
enth and Douglas and 300 joints known
as bootlegging places are in operation.
Morris Milder, alleged by the com
plaint to Iw a young politician, is
charged with selling liquors illegally in
the Kcnnard building, Fourteenth and
Douglas, and that Milder is the newly
elected assessor, and that ho is a friend
of Tom Dennison, whom the complain
ants say is a gambler and a politician.
Two clubs are listed. One is tho Owl
club, open only for "Owls"and tho oth
er is the young men's social club.
It also alleged that the brewers vi
olate I'ne Gibson act and that irotice of
all these violations have been formally

lations to continue. The governor is
asked to direct the attorney general to

The State Platlorm lor 910 DIs
cussed Very Fully.
LINCOLN, Nov 11. Mayor Jim
Dahlman came down from Omaha yes
terday and in a joint convention con
sisting of himself, W. J. Bryan and
Edgar Howard of the Columbus Tele
gram, discussed the platform for next
year and other things of importance.
The. conference was called by Mr.
Bryan, but why Governor Shallen
berger was not invited was not made
public, though possibly that may not
It is said that Mr. Bryan insisted
that the democrats should put county
option in their platform, but Dahl
man and Howard just as strongly in
sisted that it should be kept out.
Governor Shallenbcrger will insist
upon standing upon his eight o'clock
closing record, and does not care
whether county option is in the plat
form or not.
Mr. Brynn announced after the con
ference that he would not be a candi
date for the United States senate, un
less conditions demand it. He said:
"I appreciate the compliments that
have been paid me by the democrats
tonight, but republicans in the legis
lature paid me a compliment even more
flattering. They opposed the adoption
of the Oregon plan on the ground that
it was intended to elect me to the sen
ate. By making the objection they
virtually declared that I could be
elected if the voice of the people would
be made effective. I thank them for
this certificate of my popularity but I
need not tell my friends that I was ac
tuated by higher motives than person
al ambition in urging the passage of the
"The principle is right anil I am in
favor of it, no matter what party or
what person may get the benefit of it.
If you will pardon the reference to my
own plans I will tell you that I do not
desire to occupy a scat in the senate.
There are a number of men at this ban-
quct board and others in the state who
I would rather see elected than to be
elected myself. I am in a posotion
where I can go anywhere and find an
audience. My election to the senate
would hot add to the number of dem
ocrats in public life. The election of
some other democrat from Nebraska
would add one more. "
Since then utterances of friends of
Governor Shallenbcrger indicate that
he desires to make the race again for
governor, mainly that he may secure
a vindication of his policy in signing
the daylight saloon bill. The common
statement is that sentiment within
the party will force him into this raco
rather than the senatorial one.
The scheme proposed is that the
democrats espouse county option so as
to have that plank as well as the re
publicans. This would eliminate that
factor from the election and allow the
democrats to center on national issues.
It is fondly hoped, and believed, by
many democrats that if Bryan and
Shallenbcrger could head the ticket
and the issue be made a national one
the entire state, legislative and con
gressional tickets could bo carried by
Handed a Bunch.
County Attorney Ramsey was hand
ed a bunch yesterday in Judge Travis's
court which he was not looking for.
It was in the matter of Baylor vs. But
ler. The case was called for hearing on
motion to quash bill of exceptions.
The court had previously issued a man
damus compelling Justice Patterson
to settle bill of exceptions according to
law. Under advice of County Attor
ney Ramsey he failed to obey orders of
the court, hence the package which
was handed to the c. a. The court in
formed Ramsey that all orders of the
court must be obeyed. Without such
obedience there would be no law or
order and anarchy would bo the result.
He was given to understand that the
court orders must be obeyed implicit-
Chicken Pie Supper.
The annual chicken pie supper given
by the ladies of ' tho Presbyterian
church Thursday evening in the base
ment of the church was the"best ever"
in every way. Those in chargo of the
tables vied with each other to make
their tabic the most beautiful. All
were loud in praise of the coffee. At
one time all of the tables were filled
and the room was full of people pa
tiently waiting to be served. Every
body had a good time and enjoyed a
most excellent supper.
