Report Prom Chicago That Mr , Max Meyer
Ha3 Boon Seized by Custom Officers
ICr. Jullnn Muycr Bcouta tlio Idea ,

Already Proved Ills
Itinocuncc. ,
About 11 o'clock last night the nsoool
ntcd press telegraphic report brought the
following telegram :
CIMCAOO , Oct. 7 Customs officers here
to-day Hci/cd $1,000 worth of diamonds
found among the oll'ects of a member of
thu linn of Meyer Bros. , leading Omaha
imvolora , wlio had just returned from
itiropu nnd was stopping at the Tro
moil t iiotiso. From remarks made by
follow passengers of the man from whom
thu diamonds wore taken , the ollieers
suspect some $7,01)0 ) moro of smuggled
goods have been consigned to parties at
OniuJia , and a representative of tlio de
partment was dispatched to tlutt place
to-night to investigate the matter.
Upon receipt of the news a reporter
called upon Mr. Julius Meyer at his room
on Karnain street. ' Tito hour was late
nnd Mr. Meyer was in bed , but upon be
ing told the object of the visit lie admit
ted the reporter , with the remark that
the news was over twelve hours old.
"I hoard of it this morning , "
said Mr. Meyer. "A dispatch came
from my brother from Chicago saying
that he had been followed by n custom
nflicinl nnd his goods searched. The dis
patch ulso said that nothing wrong hud
been found , ns my brother hud no ilia
mends or other dutiable goods with him.
When in Europe ho purchased $ ! ? 5,000
worth of diamonds ami they are now in
the store hero. The duty on them was
all paid , and it is foolish to suppose that
ho would attempt lo smuggle $1,000
worth. Ho has never done any smug
gling business. "
Mr. Meyer also stated in answer to a
question Unit ho was not avvaro that his
brother had purchased diamonds for
other uartic.s in the oily , and lie did not
believe ho had. Ho arrived in New York
from Europe Saturday , and was ex
pected in Omaha to-day.
"I believe there is some mistake about
the matter , " eontinnod Mr. Meyer. "I
do not believe that Max has bcon ar
rested , nnd I think that the report arises
from the fact that the customs oflioial
followed him to Chicago and searched
his ofl'eets. I think it will bo explained
to-morrow , and tliat everything will be
found satisfactory. "

"We , democrats ol Massachusetts , in con

people of the countiy on the election ami In

vial sv mpathy with Its policy not cteating an

ot tlio people : that the public lands bo lescued

Weaiecainestly opposed to the payment
of the poll lax ns a condition on winch tlie
light to vote must depend. We believe In a
fiee , honest and unobstiucted ballot ; that
the right to vote should attach to the citi/cn
mid not to do > lais. Wo me opposed to the
competition ol convicts with the labor of
honest people , and demand such legislation
as will piovcntit. We believe that ueqiiciit
payment ol wages enables em loves to live
economically , and assures to them greater
Independence. Wo deem It unjust to ictain
wages earned to en argo or .swell HID
pionts of Iho employer ; wo therefore
aie in lavorol thep.issnguof a law leiiuiiiug

existing laws routing to debtors and
