est In Public Office.
Wo have received tho verbal rtpt'ea
of n viral of the gentlemen meitloted
in our serlc. of questions of Ut week
but we are satUfled that the people
will demand something more than a
mere private atement, and therefore
republish this wetk In order to give
thtae gentlemen every opportunity to
set themselves right before the public
Next week we will have tome polnkd
questions to other candidates:
Gentlemen: Now is the time for
each and every one of you to place
yourself on record before the people oJ
Douglas county as being opposed to
the Rosewater-Moores ring the most
corrupt combination which ever at
tempted to foist themselves on the re
publican or any oilier political party.
To J. II. Van Dusen:
Usually you have been credited with
having a mind of your rwn, but It Is
a known fact that at one period In the
contest you were the choice of Rose
water for the ofllce of county attor
ney, and this fact has laid you open
to suspicion. You will have a chance
to define your position, and If you wish
to avail yourself of the space of the
Atnerlenn WO cheerfully offer It to
you. We also tender space In our
columns to your associates on the tick
etMessrs, Crow and Noycs.
To Miles D. Houck:
You were nominated for the legUla
ture by the Welmter forces, but you
have been a strong supporter of the
Moores-Hosewater machine, so much
so that you are classed as a Ilosewater
man. The voters will require that you
define your position. They will not
be satisfied for you to simply support
Mr. Webster for the United States sen
ate, and serve Roscwater In other mat
ters. Aro you for ltosewatcr dictation
or ngulnst it? The people would like
a squnre-tood answer.
t t s
H, H. Olmsted: You secured your
nomination for the legislature because
of the fight you made against the fire
nnd police commission and also tho
manly fight you made In the Interest
of the farmers In tho Agricultural as
soclatlon cases, and na a result of that
police commission fight the city of
Omnha has had foisted upon It a non
resident for chief of police, In viola
tlon of the letter of the law. You did
not vote for this chief of police, it Is
true, The American does not hold
you responsible for his election, but
what the people want to know Is
whether you have a Itosewaler tag
concealed about your person, which
meana that your vote In the legislature
will be controlled by that Individual
on any proposition whatever. Our col
umns are open to you.
To J. A. Beverly.
Sheriff McDonald Is authority for
the statement that over a hundred pris
oners were voted at the Fourth ward
republican primary for tho ticket bear
ing the name of Frank E. Moores
What did you have to do with thli
transaction? Does this account for
the "flattering vindication" which the
Bee claims that Moores received at
that primary? One other question
Did you go to the Bohomlan Catholic
priest and request him to furnlBb. men
to do street work? Is It not a fact that
you have made it a practice to consult
this priest in the matter of the em

Your record as county corn-
mlHslotter bears out this statement.
You were elected county commissioner
when you had a claim against the
county for $3,500 which the commis
sioners had to act upon, That claim
was outlawed, The special attorney
of the board so advised you in
Ing. Your claim stood where over
$100,000 of other claims stood, It was
your duty as county commissioner to
plead every legal defense. But you
did not do It. You schemed to defeat
tho law, and you succeeded, Yotl
were the claimant as well as the Judge
nnd jury. You displayed no modes
ty In the matter. Your flKbt waq
shameful, nnd It has cost the people of
Douglas county over n hundred thou
sand dollars, Then you were a Moores
man, Your vote gave to Moores $1,000
of money out of tho county treasury
hen Moores held In his possession
thousands of dollars of witness fees
and other funds which belonged to his
successor In ofllce. And you knew It,
Not only that, hut you became tyran-
