HOW THEY BEG.
Special to THE MCCOOK TIUBUNE.
LINCOLN , NEK. , Oct. 21. William A. Pax
ton has sent out from headquarters of the
rotten concern in Omaha known as the "State
liankcrs and Business Men's Association"
an appeal that is really piteous in its abject
mendicancy. Mr. Paxton admits that the
liquor men have made si canvass of the state
and that "the Amendment can only be de
feated by an earnest , united and persistent
effoit , intelligently directed , and backed by
the names and money of the business men of
the state , and of : those living outside who
have material interest , real or personal ,
Mr. Paxton then oes on in his letter to
generously announce that the outfit which he
represents , with Eosewater as the , chairman
of its executive committee , has taken liberty
to bejj of the party addressed § 50 , "as a do
nation to assist this committee in its efforts
to avert the approaching calamity , " etc. In
addition to this agonizing cry for boodle , cer
tain bankers of Omaha , whose banksare made
depositories for saloon , distillery and gam
bling funds , are going from one business firm
to another and making their piratical levies
of from 510 toSoO to put into the great boodle
lund of these corrupt agents of the Liquor
BANKEUS OUTSIDE OF OMAHA.
Our readers will remember that some time
ago L. C. Humphrey , cashier of the Nebras
ka Savings & Commercial Banks of Lincoln ,
wrote to the bankers of the state to learn
their position on the prohibition issue. The
resultsof this canvass have not heretofore ap
peared in these columns.
October 10th , the following letter was sent
to many bankers throughout the state :

DEAR Sin : In your answer to my letter re
questing the poll of your bank ou the prohibi
tion Issue you used the language given below.

munications were sent mo in confidence , I do
not feel at liberty to use them without your

mail whether I may publish this in such an
article , in connection with your name ?

MOKE CKXSUS KKAUDS.
Investigation into the census returns of
Lincoln show that outrageous fraud hasbeei
perpetrated here. The first ward of Lincoli
was reported by the unscrupulous enumera
tors under Tom Cook as containing a popu
lation of 8,879. Careful estimates made bj
special enumerators who iiavo gone over the
ward , block by block , show an actual popu
lation of only 2,979. Several other wards aie
probably padded in the same outrageous way.
What the friends ot the liquor traffic would
not stoop to the Devil himself would blush
