Dahlman Says Story From Sioux City
Was Exaggerated Claims Chairman
Labored Under Mistaken Impression
That He Was a South Dakotan.
Omaha , Neb. , Jan. 24. Special to
The News : Mayor James Dahlman
of Omaha today declared that the re
port of the Sioux City waterways con
jress episode in which ho figured , had
been grossly exaggerated.
Ho denied that he was intoxicated
or that he did anything ungeutlomanly
or was out of order.
Ho said the chairman made errors
thinking ho was from South Dakota ,
with the result that a number of dele-
atcs from the state precipitated the
trouble by Insisting that he sit down.
Sioux City , Jan. 24. Mayor Jim
Dahlman , of Omaha , made his speech
yesterday afternoon that Is , ho tried
to make it.
The cowboy mayor was on the list
of notables who were down for ad
dresses at the doubleheader banquet
of the Missouri River Navigation con
gress Wednesday night , but ho failed
to arrive in time for the banquet.
The far famed burgomaster endeav
ored to make n few brief remarks at
the closing session of the congress nt
the New Grand theater yesterday af
ternoon , with the result that ho was
ejected from the convention upon do
in nnd of the assemblage.
Hisses , cat calls , stamping of feet
nnd loud cries of "Put him out !
drowned the thick accents of the man
from down the river when he endeav
ored ( to present sonic of his perfumed
"I want to say right hero that I
represent the people of Nebraska , '
came in an unsteady volco as Dahlman
rose to his feet. It was evident that
the mayor during his sojourn in Sioux
City had not devoted his attention ex
clusively to waterways.
The audience got restless.
"I want to say right here that I
have something to say about this mat
ter , " repeated Omaha's mayor. "Let
me tell you something. I have some
thing to tell you. I know something
about this. "
Difficulty of Navigation.
Thereupon he proceeded to Illustrate
some of the difficulties of navigation
and advanced a few steps down the
aisle , grasping the seats on either side
as he went.
By this time the audience had dis
covered the truth. Dahlman was for
water in the river.
The audience was more than rest
"We are ready to help fix the Mis
souri river , and want to see it done , "
declared Mayor Dahlman , "but I want I
to tell you that what you have got to
do is to go down to Washington and
see Joe Cannon and Allison and all
those other fellows "
A noisy pounding of shoe leather
sounded from one end of the room
and was taken up by other Impatient
delegates till the voice from Nebraska
was drowned in a racket. Remarks
of protest came from various members
not respectful of the dignity of the
chief executive of so large and Im
portant a city.
Dahlman Held Floor.
One man arose to a point of order.
Others seconded his point loudly. The
confusion grew as hisses were added
to the stamping. But Dahlmau held
the floor.
Gov. Burke tried to make himself
audible above the din.
"The gentleman from Nebraska is
out of order , " shouted the chairman.
"Put him out ! " came in a vociferous
chorus from an upper box.
"Sit down ! " and "Shut up ! " re
sounded from all corners of the room.
"I won't sit down , " balled Dahlman
In as loud a voice as ho could muster.
"Come on and nut me out ! I nm hnro
to talk , and I am going to talk. "
And he began to remove his coat.
The demand that the speaker bo put
out was repeated time and again.
"Is there a sergeant at arms in the
house ? " Inquired Gov. Burke , trying
to make his voice heard above the
confusion. "Is there a sergeant at
arms In the house ? " ho repeated.
Dllley to the Rescue.
The call of "Sheriff Dilley ! " was
taken up on all sides.
The sheriff was the official sergeant
at arms of the congress.
That rotund official finally elbowed
through the crowd and made his way
to Mayor Dahlman , none of the
Nebraska delegates interfering. Ho
took the explosive Mr. Dahlman by the
arm and that worthy , with hut little
objection , gathered up his coat and
hat and was personally conducted to
the door by the officer.
Later in the proceedings , after the
report of the committee and the mat
ter of how the president should be
chosen were disposed of , Gov. Burke ,
in Justice to Omaha's mayor said : "I
will now hear the gentleman from
Nebraska. "
Cries Immediately rang out : "Wo
don't want him. " They showed de
cidedly that the delegates were in no
mood to listen to the cowboy mayor.
And Mr , Dahlmnn did not endeavor
to continue his remarks.

Suggestion Is Made That Such a Plan
Would Economize on the Lot , on the
Heating Plant and the Janitor One
of Each Would Do.
"Allow mo to suggest , " said a Nor
folk business man who is interested
in both the proposed public library ,
the proposed new Y. M. C. A. building
and the welfare of the city of Norfolk ,
"that the two buildings be united Into
one proposition , that subscriptions be
taken for both in one fund , that we
buy the lot directly across the street
south from the postoffice and put both
these buildings on that lot.
"That would mean economy in many
ways. In the first place wo would
have to buy only one lot. In the second
end place , one janitor could take care
of them both and in the third place
one heating plant could heat them
"It seems to me that would be a sim
ple solution of the whole matter which ,
If allowed to remain two distinct prop
ositions , is very soon going to cause
"Let us get together and quit quib
bling and quarreling over the affair.
Without absolute harmony and enthu
siastic co-operation , both propositions

"We could move the house off that
lot and sell it for what it would
bring. "

old Gerecke or Howe Egbert property ,
is 100x170 feet
