Omnlm nnd DCS Molnes pluycd ugaln yes
terday ufternoou , and tuo prohibitionists
won the game.
Nobody cares , however , for the White
Sox , the real work for the L.USOU being
The weather was moist and disagreeable ,
and thcro was only a baker's dozen or two
who witnessed the game.
Like the meteorological condition , the con
test wus soggy and uninteresting.
Young Freeman , released by Milwaukee
early in tbo season , wus given a trial in the
box for Omaha uud did fairly well.
Abbey , of Kearney , occupied loft garden
for the visitors , und ho played the position
superbly , making the only brilliant play of
the game , a long , running dlfllcult eaten of n
fly from Willis' bat.
The first Inning was unproductive for both
sides , hut In the second Ornuhu made ono
run and DCS Monica two.
For the champions Messltt mudo a safe
'drive to right after Walsh and Andrews hud
gone out. Cody's inexcusable muff of Canu-
van's fly lo ; Jack homo and Jimmy to third ,
but ho was left. Freeman striking out.
Old man Pholan mudo a nicobunt for his
side after two hands were out und Abbey
_ nnd Kennedy following with two-sackcrs in
quick succession , the two first ruuaors
scored. Koach Hew out to Crooks.
In the fifth Omaha made two more runs ,
, whUo th.o Prohibs made throe. Again \hero
wore two out when Freeman drove the ball
against left field fence for two bases. Then
Cooncy smashed out a resonant homer way
out to the middle field fence , earning botn
runs. Cleveland llew out to third.
For the visitors Abbey got to first on a
muff by Can a van. Kennedy wont out to
Andrews nnd Honch struck JCleveland's
short throw guvo Patton his1 base , and
Maskrey made a homo run. Connell followed
with a safe one , but Cody ended the fun by
fouling out to Mossitt , '
' The sixth was a blank for Omaha , but
again DCS Moines scored twice.
Crooks' error gave Traflley a life , nnd he
came homo on Phelan's two-bucger. A wild
pitch let Diek.to third , and ho crossed thu
pinto In Abbey's out to Cnnuvun.
That ended the Prohibitionists' run get
ting , but they had enough to glvo them tbo
Omnlm pulled up to within ono run nf a tlo
in tbo seventh and eighth. In the seventh ,
after Andrews' out , Messitt made his second
lilt , Cunuvan struck out , but Freeman uud
Coonoy both hitting safe Jack came home.
After two outs in thu eighth , Walsh und
Andrews knocked oi.t homers , WaUli into
the cowpen In the northwest corner aim
Wally over the right Hold fence.
The ninth war a blunk , aud thus the game
went to DCS Molncs.
The score :
Earned runs Omahn 5 , DCS Molncs 3.

J. M. Woolworth , the toastmnstor , spoke
as follows :
Gentlemen , wo will proceed now with the
call of ttrj cases assigned for to-day. [ Laugh
ter ] , No higher tribute can bo paiu to n
man's character than to select him for the
determination of a controversy bo-
twcon conflicting parties. It implies
judgment , learning , character and resolution
elution to resist the persuasion
on the ono side nnd the criticisms on the
other side ; and , to como forth from such
n service accepted by both parties , with the
judgment , If not the nppreval , at least , re
ceived as lionust'and faithful nnd intended
to bo just , is nn achievement , ' oven
when the service is between individ
uals of u very high order
But , whoii'tho person called to this service
is called by a community , a multitude , is
called not to render ono judgment , but to
render many judgments upon many contro
versies coming before him from every quar
ter , and corned forth from that scrvico with
the approval of his fcllow-cltlzoni ; accepted
us one who has brought to that service
good intention , u resolute determination to
do right , adequate learning und competent
judgment ; that man has achieved a position ;
that nrau lias rendered a service vor.y rare in
the world. lAppluuso.J
1 can only say that it Is a great gratification
to the b.ir of Douglas county nnd the bar of
this judicial district that ho , who goes forth
from n brief judicial service with the ap
proval nf his fellow citizens nnd of the com
munity on all sides , and is advanced to a
higher , a more responsible , a moro laborious
situation of llkc'charactor , is our guest this
Gentlemen , it gives , rae great pleasure to
present lo you the cuest of the evening , the
Hon. Lewis A.'GrdJT. [ Great applause. ]
Judge Groff them , arose und spoke as fol
lows : f > w ,
Mr. Toastmastqi ; and gentlemen of the
You know that Tor nearly three years it
bus been my dntyso listen to , nnd bo instruct
ed nnd entertained by you. I am hero ,
to-night , in the/ sumo attitude.
There is another reason why I shall not
attempt to inalto a speech. You are my
friends. But , tfontlemon , you must not taito
my brevity to ho" a sign of indifference.
Could you scojtrijf ' heart , you would read
there my dccp'appreciaiion of this proof of
your kiualy feeling
In tno picturo'qf the ideal judge and man ,
so eloquently arawn by Chancellor Woolworth -
worth , I recogniiojfar more clearly the par
tial hand of 'a friend than my own attain
ments. I am kccnlj sensible that for what
ever success ha'd'httend'dd ino I urn largely in
debted to the support ol the bar , the press
nnd the pcopl < "rrhat JL h'avo not been un
grateful ismy greatest merit.
Respecting the office to which theprcsidont
bus appointed me , I can only promise tuat ,
in the administration of its affairs , I shall
endeavor to do my whole dnty.
I thank you goiillomon of the bar for this
evidence of your esteem , and you , associates
of the bench , for the fraternal support you
havs always given me ; and you , gentlemen
of the press , I thank for tbo fairness with
which you have dealt with my public 'nets
and the courtesies you have shown mo as
neighbor nnd man.
A. J. Poppletyn then responded to the
"Land Laws of the United States. " He re
ferred to history , snowing from what
countries the' United States had acquired
title to a great part of its domain , and that
ono uuioutr the heritage of its people was
that of the laws which protected them in
their possession of the hind which they had
acquired in purchase. Ho also enumerated
the various moans by which landholders hud
bccomu possessed of their holdings und
closed with u fervent tribute to the energy ,
ability and integrity of Judge Groff in Ins
capacity both ai u lawyer and a jurist.
Hon. W. J. Connell , in response to the
toast of "Tho Civil Service , " stated he be
lieved that , in a recent interview which ho
hud the Honor and privilege of having with
the president , ho but reflected the sentiment
of the gontlomea present when ho stated
that Judge Groff was not only one of the
most approachable of men , but , at the
same time , ouo of thn most unapprouchublo
of men , u man whose honesty nnd integrity
could not bo questioned. Now , bu was to
talk in regard to civilmcrvjco , und had pre
pared n speech of some lengthen
on that subject , Ho had con
cluded , however , to waive that
privilege In view of the eight or ton who
weru to follow him , and that those present
might listen to thorn on moro important sub
jects than his own.
J. C. Cowin spoke upon the question ,
"Shall wo have a national divorce law } " Ho
paid an eloquent tribute to Judge Groff , and
then , addressing himself to his subject ,
showed the inconsistency of the divorce luws
in various s'tntus of the union. He instanced
a case which illustrated his point that a
man might have us uiuny wives as ho
wuntcd in the males , that they would all bo
legal wives , und that in the matter
of right of dower , when it might
bo claimed in the state of Ne
braska , the claim could not uo contested.
Ho suid , "If I were a legislator I would
make but one ground of divorce for the- man
and many grounds > for too woman. I tnko it
the experience of all of us is that the woman
needs the protection nf the law , und though
many u divorcn is granted on the part
of the huahnnd it frequently occurs
that thecustody oftchildroii is given to the
mother. It is the itfcundcst thing to mo in
courts that it is-lbu mother , poor , helpless
and weak , teat alwuys stops up and takes the
custouy of the chiklcon , "
Eloquent speeches were made by other cen-
tlcmuii whoso nani6sappear above and to
which reference wjiyjp umdo later.

tno city that was not represented.
The proceedings of the committee were
opened by Pat Ford , who moved that the
state nnd county convention bo n "wheel
within n wheel , " that is , that but ono set of
primaries bu Hold. The motion wns sus
tained. J. J. Mafionoy broke up an informal
discussion on the tlnio of holding the county
primaries and convention by propounding u
motion to the offcct that the primaries to se
lect delegates to the county convention beheld
hold October 11 und the convention on tlio
afternoon following. Chulrman Martin cast
an caglo eye about the room nnd remarked
that "there were no doubt some
Individuals present that would bo cuu-
didutos for oitlco , nnd thut an op
portunity was ouon for them to express
their preference sl regards the dates. 1'lioro
were ubout thirty-llvo linlivuluals in Iho
room , and about twtinty-niuo of them
blushed that meant twonty-nino candidates.
The fact thut there hud been so mo talk of
the aspirants to olllco advancing means
wherewith to defray the expense in getting
out naturalization papers and like inciden
tals , coupled with a decoction of suppi-osscd
gall und domocrutic modesty , was the means
of dolnc away with a voluminous supply of
crude oratory. After a painful silor.iuj the
chairman put the motion and the dates , as
above , were selected. Messrs. Snydur and
Priclio were appointed a committee to se
cure u hall and make other urrungomuuts for
the to-be-choscri delegates.
The matter of ward and precinct repre
sentation was next taken up , und was the
means of arousing the astute Puddy Ford
from u comatose state of providing some
other attraction for his occulurs , that were
rested calmly yo' ilrinly on tha gin Husk
that by this time bore evidence of having
been assailed on an elaborate scale. He said :
"Sout Omcelia.v is intoitlod to ns many
voatz fur each wuhrd as iny wahrd

dimucratlc voatzs , than they do hero.
Oi malto a motlschn that she bo allowed

twilvo. Ol , " but the or.stwhilo Patrick
was suddenly slue-tracked by J. J. Muhonuy ,
who accused him of making misrepresenta
tions to thn committee. Tlio latter stated
that the First ward polled a heavier demo
cratic vote than all tlio four wurds in South
Omaha combined. Mr. Muhouoy then moved
that ouch ward in the city of Omaha bo en
titled to seven delegates , each ward in South
Omaha three delegates , and the country pre
cincts ono dolcKO'to each. The motion was
sustained. The registry laxv was then
taken up for discussion. It was foreign to
the knowledge of numerous members of the
committee us recurds Its exact measure
ments , but nn individual who "declined
to make himself known" warned the com
mittee to adhere to the specifications of the
law , in view of casting a full dumocratio
vote. The places for Holding the .primaries
were decided upon as follows , no elianirn
being made from last year where the warder
or precinct was not represented : First

A communication , signed by Louis Hulin-
rod and others was received ufkliiR thut the
polling place of tha Second ward ho either
established ut Sixteenth nnd Williams or at
Kessler'a hull , on South Thirteenth street ,
so us to bo more central. It was tabled with
out discussion. Julius Meyer then brought
up the subject , of naturalization. Ho stated
that some responsible person , or persons ,
should guarnntoo the payment of naturaliza
tion papers , otherwise Clerk Moores , of the
district court , would not extend credit on
the same. Ho stated that ho had done so lust
year uud was inonoy out of pocket by doing
so , und ho did not propose to shoulder nil
the responsibility , The members again
branched out in an Informal discussion ,
Chairman Martin said : ' 'An ' opinion
seems to prevail that Douglas
county Is safely democratic , nnd
that a ticket can be elected simply by putting
It In the field. Such Is not tbo case. I hold
that this county Js not democratic , and to bo
victorious wo will have to malto u dcsporutu
"That's so ! You're right ! " name from iv
dozen lips , In response. The chair then , tier
motion , appointed Julius Meyers uud Joseph
Tehou u committee of ( wo to wait upon ttio
clerk of the district court for the purpose of
securing special rates on naturalisation pa.
pcrs. Tehon , who is the local "sycamore"
of the Wnbash , accepted the position , but
casually remarked that ho. too , was "m the
hole" from thu last campaign ,
The chairman wiia about to proceed to the
next order of business , when Pudd. " Ford
arose. and , swinging ills mauleys
promiscuously in the air , announced
his allegiance to Commissioner Mount.
"Tho papers hayo Bid that oi would
knoifo Mount , but ol Intlnd to blip him nil oi
kin , " and another chapter on "rule or rum"
was brought to u close ,
James Donnelly , tr. , stated that the vote
in the Second wurd was so large thut with
two products n full veto could not bo polled.
The flrat precinct , ho said , lust year polled
1,433 votes , nnd the Second 1,140 votes. Ho
agreed to procure the signature of the re
quired"nuinbor , nnd nsk thn council to create
an additional district. But who elioulil
guarantee the payment for naturalisation
papers ) This was the all-Important problem
ns yet undlstoluuble. Finally u finance com
mittee wus appointed consisting of Adam
Snyder. W. A. Gardner , H. Fncko , James
Donnelly , Jr. , and J. J. Malioney to solicit
alms for tht purpose , and in the midst of a
wilderness ot perplexity an adjournment was
