Mil. YJihSlilt'S ItEMEDV.
Mr. John O. Yelaer, a viuni): attorney
of thin city who liux mndu a careful
Htudy of political Hcletioo and economy,
hit (lev hied a new plan for relieving
the ntrlngency of the money market,
tho dlntrenHlng condition of labor and
thu well-founded dlHtruNt of manufac
turer and capital ImIh, 111 Idea I for
congpoH to piiHNalaw aulhorl.lng tins
appointment of labor overnerr, who
In turn hall havo iower to employ all
Idle men, canning them to work upon
national highway, cuiiiiln, river Im
provement, irrigating ditche, publlo
mine and quarries In fact In any and
all branches of IiuhIiich whore. klllod
or unnkllled labor t required. I hi
would havo tho government adopt "any
cheap, convenient and durable mixture
of metal, or paper, to represent this
standard" a "medium of exchange
based upon a common standard" and
pro rata thu same among tho several
state according to their population.
Ho would circulate thin money by pity
ing for tho work done on the alxivo. Im
provements, under the direct ion ol thu
overseer working under rule and for a
salary prescribed by the general gov
ernment. Thl money would havo all the debt
paying power of either gold or llver,
based on tho value of unnkllled labor
and li redeemable by the government.
That the schemo is original with Mr,
Yelser though verging very closely
upon the plan outlined by Itellamy in
"looking Iliickward" wo havo every
reason to believe, and that It appear
both feiinlbloand plauslblo we arc bound
It may Im that Mr, Yelser ha found
tho solution for theso vexation crises
or "slump" In tho money market, that
occur every quarter of a century, At
any rate Ibo plan will bear discussion,
and wo doubt not Im will Isi abb) to
lucidly defend the advanced ground ho
has taken against all who brand hi
scheme with being "visionary" or Im
practicable. What do you think of It?
Probably at no tlmo since tha city of
Omaha was founded ha thera been a
many good men mentioned in connec
tion with tho mayoralty a there ha
been thl year,
The World-1 Itrutd ha been particu
larly ii nx lou to II ml soma man who
would awaken a popular entlment. It
ha mentioned some men whom TllK
AMKItlOAN would not object to seeing
elevated to tho position of chief execu
tive of thl city. Among tho number
of honorable citizen It ha mentioned
may li named Chas, Goodrich, Truman
Duck, Mayor Demi, K. V. Davis, Dr.
Mercer and A. H. Churchill, Wo do
not mean to say these men havo all
been endorsed by tho World-1 It rttld,
nor would they all bo endorsed by TllK
AMKIIK'AN. Hut they havo lxen sug
gested. Probably tho mont popular
men on either side,' at thl time, are
Goodrich and Churchill, but whether
either will ecuro the nomination, re
main to ho seen.
Mr, Hemls, in our estimation, has
made a very competent official, and
thera ha been llltlo or no scandal con
nected with tho city governmontsinco
ho annumed the oflico of mayor, yet
there seems a dlnponltlon on tho part of
a large number of citizen to supplant
him with Mr. Churchill, or oho of the
other gentlemen mentioned above.

.hint how thin w III suit the voter of
this dlntrlct w III not lie know n until the
votes have lieii coimied,
Prolmbly no one ever thought just
how far this question of bur nomina
tions would li carried,
Tho bar has censed suggesting- It
now dictate-and (ho people will lie
linked to decide whether or not It Is
proper for a Judge to depend wholly
upon tho lawyer for hi olllco.
Hut the dlntrlct bar ha lieen excelled
by tho action of tho bar of Dougla
county. It never appeared In politic
before, but after the adjournment of
tho district bar, tho Kormin Catholic
contingent, backed by Lee F.stollo, Lee
Itolsley, W. S. Shoemaker and Ed.
Slmeral, had the Douglas county bar
called together to nominate a candidate
for county Judge. Hut a very Binall
fraction participated, and of tho num
ber who did take part very few ever
had any business In either the dlntrlct
or county court being mainly oflico
clerks and young attorneys.
These gentlemen were aided by a
largo delegation of politicians who
were not member of the bar, but hud
turned out to help their favorite can
didate, Tho sentiments expressed elsewhere
In those columns show how tho better
clan of lawyer felt when it came to
nomination a county judge.
If tho people permit the bar to en-'
crouch upon their right thl year, they
need not bo surprised If, two years
hence, tho lawyer arrogate to them
elve tho rlgkt to nominate tho clerk
of the district court, tho hherliT, the
pollen Judge and justice of tho pouee,
They are all oHloer who deal more
largely with tho lawyer than with any
other class, and this would he but a
natural senuenoo to what they have
done this year.
The question now 1 will you ratify
their action, or will you act for your
selves in the coming primaries and

copies of tho Desert lOvcnlng AV, of
Hull Lake, Utah, which contain an ex

are becoming so common that we be

Wo believe they are started by certain
members of tho order for the purpose
of advertising tho association, for it
always ha an unprecedented growth In

tho bead olllcer, having become aware
of th! fact, havo evidently authorized
theso exposure knowing that the

I g b sve to ute Uu rvunon why my

"I have practiced law for more than
twctiiy years, and am frank to say that
I have alwajs striven lo command Ihe
ct and kissI will of all mem Iters of
tlo profennion, and It I needless fur me
to say that my delro In this regard
have not Is-en changed since my elec
tion to the Is-nch. During my term of
olllco the attorneys who have had bunl
nens In the county court have been
mont eouiiiious and resHiclful, and I am
confident that I have the rcsja'ct and
good will of all.
"Heing deHirous of having these
pleasant relations continue, especially
while I remain upon the bench, I shall
refrain from doing anything which
may disturb them. Kocolleotions of
the pant cause me to bear in mind the
bitter feeling engendered as a result
of a bur nomination. Again, I have
yet over four months to serve as county
judge. Should I now passively permit
my name to come before this bar con
vention and secure Its endorsement my
political opponents would Immediately
charge that I had used my Influence as
county judge to obtain tho bar recom
mendation, and this charge, should I
succeed in obtaining the nomination of
tho county convention, would boused to
my detriment nt tho election.
"Another reason is that many of the
duties of this court partake largely of
responsibilities which may bo classllied
purely as business matters, for the ready
dispute!) of which good business
methods aro essential. Of such
methods tho business men might claim
to be the more proper clus of citizen
to lake the Initiative step lis to who
should bo tho candidate for Judge.
Without seeming to boast, I wish to
say that tho system of ulnpatchlng
business with care which ha been In
troduced during my administration
will, I believe, commend Itself to all
good business men, whatever may bo
their calling or profession.
"The probate work bring tho county
judge in direct communication with a
larger number of peoplo and a greater
variety of classes of citizens than doe
the work of any other county olllclal.
lie is consulted upon all manner of
questions; Is often made n confident in
family matters and Is, in a confidential
way, regarded ai a counsellor and ad
viser In nearly all matter except In
itvil Hulls. This Is not the case In the
district court; the parties Invariably
having an attorney to speak for thorn.
"Hear In mind that the civil business
of this court, while it command one
half of tho time of tho judge on the
bench, coyer only about one-tenth of
tho responsibilities of tho judge of tho
county court, nnd this Is true whether
you consider these responsibilities from
a money value stand point, or of im
portance In general terms. Civil suit
may or may not he brought In thl
court at the option of the attorneys or
clients, but In all other matter tho
business cannot bo brought In any
"I will now mention a few of tho
classes of citizen who aro liable to
argue that their particular class should
havo It inllucneu felt with equal force
as tho bar in the selection ofacandl-
'date forjudge of thl county.
"We settle many estate where law
yer have nothing to do with them,
but few whore a doctor 1 not in
terested, "In tho matter of assignment of In
solvent debtor tho merchant aro
especially interested In having the
matter speodlly settled and tho money
"In tho matter of guardianship of
Insane nnd Incompetent persons and
minor, tho friends and relative of the
ward are especially Interested to have
a judge who will have the courage and
conscience to protect tho estate from
all kinds of unjust claim and losses.
"Abstractors might claim that they
were tho more capable of passing upon
the qualifications of a judge,
"Administrator and executor might
regard that they were tho most proper
persons to say who should be Judge,
"Tlio mention of these few classes
will suggest many others of equal Im
portance. "It has so long been the custom to
appoint the widow, or uny other per
son suggested by tho next, of kin as
administrator of an estate, regardless
of business qualifications or experience
In affairs, who regard it an unnecessary
expense to employ a lawyer, that tho
judge must act as Judge and lawyer in
tho whole proceeding.

Tho above letter appeared In tho
World-1 k raid Wednesday morning,
and the outcome of the county bar con
ventlon to nominate a candidate for
county judge was certainly an endorse
mcnt of tho sentiments set forth In
Judge Eller's letter to the bar.
After tho district bar had met and
nominated three candidates for district
judge namely, Judges Walton and
Dullleand Mr. W. S. Curtis, nnd after
a campaign committee consisting of E.
W. Slmeral, W. S. Shoemaker, Lee
Eskllo, T, J. Mahoney, II. II. Howes,
J. P. Davl and E. T. Langdon had been
appointed tho convention adjourned
Immediately after its adjournment a
motion was made that the Doug
las county bar bo called to order and
presided over by the sumo chair
man and secretary. Ex-Judge Donne
had acted as chairman and Mr. liwdlck
as secretary, but when the motion was
declared carried Judgo Doane without
assuming tho chair, stated that he be
Uevcd the bar had gone as far a it was
expedient for It to go. That heretofore
It hud experienced some chflloulty In
securing recognition for lU (selection,
and that If tho bar undertook to carry
this Idea of bar nominees to positions
beneath the district bench ho believed
It would bo wrong, and would seriously
affect tho good work already done. For
those reasons he would decline to act
a chairman or to participate H tho dc
liberation of tho county bar conven
tion, Thl announcement provoked
Mr. Hrogan then moved Unit Chas.
J. Greene act as chairman of the county
bar convention. Tho motion wa put
and declared carried.
Ed. SImoral, becoming aware for the
flret time that tho bar would not back
the Roman Catholic fight to supersede
tho action of tho various party conven
Hons, moved to adjourn, but the motion
was voted down.
Then Mr. Hoolek raised a question as
to thu legality to hi m at ii secretary
and retired. Hut on motion of Mr,
Mahoney tho cloud wa removed from
Mr. Charle OITut, Imbued with tho
Idea that had been so tersely set forth
In Judgo Eller's letter, said that In a
much as there had been some business
transacted since the last motion to ad
journ had been made and defeated, he
would now move that the convention
do now adjourn.
Tho motion was voted down,
A formal ballot was then taken, which
showed no choice, and such a small
fraction of the bar participating, that
Mr, OITut again moved an adjournment,
stating a hi roamm that there were
nearly four hundred attorney In Doug
la county and that hardly one-fourth
of that number worn participating,
therefore they had no right to nom
inate a man for county Judge and label
him tho county bar nominee.
Hut again ho met a Waterloo, and a
second ballot was ordered, which also
resulted In no choice. A third ballot
wa taken and Mr, Irving Haxterwas
chosen. Ho received slxty-nlno votes,
and was declared tho nominee,
Mr. Haxter wns called for and
thanked tiio bar for tho honor it did
him and declared It wus "tho proudest
moment of tho thirty years of my life,"
Tho convention then adjourned.
We make a specialty of brief print
ing, and attorneys having this kind of
work should call on us. We will ho
pleased to make price which aro reas
onable, and guarantee good work.

Tho reporter for the Ike was not in the

some distance from Twentieth, getting

Setter puppies, which were somewhoro
near my residence, tho mother of the
puppies having a city tag on her collar.
O'Grady admits having taken the dog,
was seen to carry it to his car and tako

tlio privilege of hi own wishes In thl
case, justice Smith, in giving hiB
decision, said, that although it was be
lieved by some, that a dog was not con
sidered property that ho has never for
one moment considered a dog anything
else hut property, and that ho could not

O'Grady should pay for the dog fifteen
dollars ($15.00) and costs of tho suit.
O'Grady Insisted that a dog was not
property, and appealed the case. With
regards to tho worthless red and white
spotted cur, If tho reporter for tho lko
will come over to tho corner of Twen
tieth and Ilarnoy streets, I will show
him the difference between athorough-
bred and a cur which I doubt ho could
tell If ho were left to his own judg
ment. John Hosk.
