Tho citizens' ticket had no paper to
fight its battles. All tho praise it re
ceived was by word of mouth and by a
circular addressed to tho electors of
South Omaha, but oven that primitive
way of conveying to the voter tho great
superiority of tho candidates on tho
citizens' ticket over all contestants

that tho entire citizens' ticket has been

Early Tuesdiiy morning tho friends of
tho various candidates began to collect
about tho several polling places, and
soon carriages and wagons were hurry

of men who desired to vote tho ticket
being worked by the crowd having thb
vehicles in charge.
At first there was scarcely any ex
citement alxmt tho election liooth. Men
quietly cast their ballot and went back
to work. Most of tho votes cast up to
noon were for tho citizens' ticket, but
after that hour tho tide seemed to turn
tho other way, and while tho election of
Mr. Miller, and most of tho citizens'
ticket, seemed assured at tho closing of
tho polls, tho counting of tho ballots
gave little encouragement until near

Tho night before tho election tho
Romans held a mass meeting, which
tho J Ire characterizes a democratic mass
meeting. Those eminent Romanists,
John C. Carroll, Mike V. Gannon, Tim
.1. Malioneyand Erwin B. Towl partlci
patod In tho melee. Tho Ike gives tho
following account of tho meeting:
Tho democrats made an abortive at
tempt to hold a mass meeting in Blum's
hall last night. Tho accumulated
stock of campaign enthusiasm proved
too much for tho capacity of the build
ing, however, and it broke up in con
fusion at tho end of tho first act. Tho
scenes of tho recent democratic converi'
tion were repeated and showed that tho
intervening time has only increased tho
acrimony that pervaded the ranks of
Tho meeting was under the auspices
of tho South Omaha Democratic club
and President John C, Carroll called
the meeting to order. Ho Introduced
Hon. M. V, Cannon of Omaha, who re
marked that ho had always boon a dem
ocrat. He added that ho was there to
support an independent candidate lie
cause his opponent had boon an Imle
pendent candidate twq-years before. Ho
denounced corruption" in polities In a
manner that pointed to the charges
which were to follow, anil referred to a
long lino of men who had been sacrificed
for their principles, extending from
Mucins Seavola to M. V. Cannon. Ho
was there to protest against the nom
ination of a man for mayor of South
Omaha who had betrayed his party last
fall. Ho produced a photograph of a
nolo which ho said was a proof of his
trultorous conduct and which had lieon
photographed by Judge Ievi. Tho
note was dated Novonlier 14, 8')l, arid
signed by D. JA Bayless, W. C. Sloane
and Ed. Johnston. Its significance as
stated by tho speaker, was its effect In
inducing Bayless to pull out of the race
for county judge.
"Do you dare to make such a charge?"
said a voice from tho audience.
"Yes sir, I do deliberately, and I
make tho further charge and I can sut-
stantlato it, that your democratic can
didate for mayor distributed the ImmhIIo
in this city."
"It is for you to say," added Mr.
Gannon, "whether tho men who

attention to tho fact that the alleged

was dated ten days after tho election,
and that was as far as ho could go. The
crowd pressed up close to the platform
and the disorder which had broken out
half a dozen times during tho meet ing
culminated In a general muss. The
president vainly pounded his table with
a lH-er glass. Tho rank and II lo of democ
racy whooped with added vigor, and
pushed up to have a hand In tho gen

confusion tho speakers deserted the

Sound Advice From a Catholic Source.
John IS. Walker, Ph. I)., in a lecture
befom the students of tho Romish Uni
versity of Washington some time ago,
is thus reported;
Why do Catholic writers seek to covt-r
up tlic lienors of St. Uartholomew,
the cruelties of an Inquisition which
burned the flesh of human beings made
In God's likeness, or the sell-sulllclent
wisdom which refuse to recognize tho
truths discovered by Galileo? Iit
these stories be told In every child's
text book, let them stand, the monu
ments they are. to the folly, the blunders,
tho siiperstltitlon, the weakness of hu
man souls, who, In tholr arrogance, refus
ed Intoprct God's Word except to suit
their own passion." Turning to the
students, the lecture added: "You are
to go out to teach, recollect that God
does not ask you to cover up the truth.

There are many other men and wo
men prominent In oureountry's history,
and many others of the leading news
papers, that have referred to us In like
But that which I desire to speak of
concerning these praises Is that they
all seem to think we are organized
principally for tho purpose of defend
ing our country In case of war. In fact,
In nearly every case, whenever we
have boon sstken 0 by tho public or
press, this seems to bo the leading im
pression of us as an organization of
today. Hut such Is not tho case. While
this Is one of them, It Is not tho prin
cipal one. If It should become neces
sary, tho Sons of Veterans would de
fend our country as their fathers did In
the days of '(11, Hut if war should not
come, what then are wo U do' Can we
do nothing else for our country's sake?
Looking at our country as It Is to
day, with some of our principal offices
In the hands of boodle politicians, with
large numbers of foreigners annually
landing on our shores, the principles
for which our fathers fought, scorned
by capital, can we not see a nobler
work Iteforo us?
Looking at all this, must we spend
our time in Idleness, ns It were, and
wait for wnr? Shall we watch the for
eign element becoming more and more
a controlling power, and yet wait for
swords to bo crossed before we can take
a hand? Shall we see the old Hag dis
honored and Insulted, and yet wait for
a chance to defend It In ojsm conflict?
Shall we close our eyes arid ears to all
this, and wait for the time to come
when we can shed our bhssl upon the
Hold of batt le?
No, we must not stop here. There is
a greater work for us to do than this.
Tho time is, of course, not far distant
when the G, A. R, will pass away as an
(dement of Influence. We must then
lie ready to take its place In peace as
well as war. Wo must 1st ready to
buckle on Its armour as an Influential

OlTV 0 MKXIfjO, April .'l.-A few
weeks ago A7 Tlnnim, the newspaper
organ of tho Catholic clergy in Mexico,
opened a register to Inscrlble the
names of all the Mexican patriots who
are opposed to the rc,Uvn til the flags
taken by tho Americans during the
Mexican war, and publishes each day
the names received for Inscription. In
Its Issue of today appears the following,
which Is signed by Iwls Alfonso,
minister: "As a Catholic and Mexican
I protest against the Insult which the
hated and grasping Yankee offers to

Mixed Politic and Religion,
IlKTKOlT, Mich., April ft. The muni
cipal elections held throughout this
state resulted In victories for republi
can tickets In a number of democratic
strongholds, while the demisTuts were
successful in others. The great feature
of the election was that religion and
politics were mixed in a large numlsT
of towns. In such cities as Saginaw,
(fraud Rapids, Port Huron and West
Hay City and In many smaller places
the anti-Catholic issue was a strong one,
calling out a tremendous vote. In most
places tho result was such as to give
the antl-Cuthnllo element grounds for
claiming the victory, although, In u
mixed political situation, there were
ot her controlling issues. Out of fifty or
more of the principal cities arid towns
in t he state the returns show victories
for the republicans for twenty-five,
while twenty went demis-ratlo. In a
riiimlsir of cities the result was mixed,
while in others the non-partisan ticket
