The first of a series ot "Rood citizenship'

the Bocletles of the St. Mary's Avenue Con

filled the auditorium. The addresses wen
devoted to a general discussion ot the < IUOH

local or state politics.
A prayer by Hev. Henderson of the I'-iil

The domination of corporations was nllmlei
to with stinging force. The speaker de
dared that the- American people were bour.i
In more abject slavery than the nesroes o
the south before the war. Taxation CPU
stantly grew heavier and the public sonic
poorer as the corporations tightened the I
grasp on the purse strings of the city
stuto and national governments.
The spealier Introduced figures tending t
uliow how largely the Increase In tuxatloi
exceeded the Increase In population and sali
that In spite of this our cities were mor
poorly govprned than ever. Valuable trnn
chlscs ygn corruptly conveyed to corpora
tlons , poor pavements predominated , th
streets were disfigured and rendered unsaf
by overhead wires , and sanitary measure
were mElected. These Influences had ex
tended to the state and national government ;
United States senators had been openly ac
cuscd of purchasing their seats In congrcs
and the people seemed to take It nil as
matter of course.
Jlr. Durns discussed the concentra

at some length and the consequen
breeding of disease of body and soul In th
densely habited slums. Then he proceede
to define In a general way the duties , of goo
citizens. Ho contended that those who woul
govern others must first learn to gover
themselves , and they should not allow the !
Inherent evil , tendencies to corrupt thcl
political life. It was the duty of every cltl
zen to know for whom ami for what he wa
voting. Fictitious Issues were easily create
by shrewd politicians to obrcure the real Is
sues of the campaign. To vote blindly wa
worse than criminal. It was simply brcamln
a tool of the great corporations , and oftc
resulted In doing Incalculable Injury to th
In conclusion It was urged that the vote
should not be .too tightly bound , by part

After a solo by Miss Frances Hoeder , Ilei
T. J. SUckcy was Introduced and spoke upo
the same subject. In one respect ho dll
fered slightly from the first speaker. 1
waa his opinion that the era of good cltlzcr
ship was to be brought about through the Ir
fluence of Christianity rather than by tli
attendance of the Christian people at tli
caucuses and primaries to purify them b
their example and personal attendance. 1

duced Harry Drome. Prof. Korty ar
T. J. Majors as the speakers.
T. J < Majors spoke first. In np&.ilng I
said that he had no set speech , hut wanti
to talk like a great governor ought to tal
with the people. He said that lu . wanted
get acquainted with the people of the Blxl
ward and let them see what kind of chara
ter they were going to elect as the re :
governor of Nebraska. Ha then told ho
he had lived In the state for Milriyoi
years , and had by Industry and frugal ! !
accumulated enough of this world's goods i
keep the wolf from the door. The cred
and standing of the commonwealth must 1
maintained and could only be by electing It
republican ticket from top to bottom.
a populist governor were placed In tl
chair the credit of the state would be mine
Majors said that ho had .ihvjys been
tvorklngman and was In touchith r
vor km en. and that he would do what I
could when elected to restore the prosper ! !
of the state. In speaking about a pop.ill
rule , Majors cited Kansas and Colorado :
"It , " said he , "you turn the slnto ov <
to the populists wa will be the same :
they are In Kansas. Down there Ihev cai
not renew ft loan or sell bonds. It Is tl
same In Colorado. I want to appeal
workliignien to help restore to us the crcO
of the state , and so help every man wl
wants to work to get employment. "
After drifting about on minor subjets f
B. few moments Majors said :
" 1 have been accused ot being n rallro :
ninn , I want to say right hero that not 01
stable dollar of corporation money , rallrcu
or otherwise , has ever entered my pocket
I live on & farm , and am Interested In tl
worklngman , In my heart I have no an
mostly against corporations. They have
'In their power to do what Individuals ca
not do. I have no defense to make of co
poratlons when they trespass on the rlgh
of Individuals. I call on God to witness n
statement that not a single dollar ever c
tereO , my pockcta that was not mlns I
right. About Senator Taylor , I bavo b <
charged by iny lUtle friend God bless li
Rout It he baa one of abductingTaylc
Now. I knew no more ol Taylor than ot ai
other member of thu legislature. Beth Co :
tlie paid detective ot my little friend , a

tie frleml Is raUlng this cry to cover up I
own tracks. He Is stoking to advance I
Interest ! ol his sheet , the Stinger. The i
publican party was never so well organk
us now. and Us banners will be carried
victory on election day. "
* After telling all fibbut his war recoi
which didn't take Mm long , Majors a
that when elected the people would nev
rcgrtt Imvlng put plain Tom Majors In t
governor's chair , anil Invited everybo
present to come down and sen him and
would give all a. hearty welcome to the ata
capllol. "You shall bo proud ot me , " tt

After the reading of the communlcatlo
Mr. Strlckler said that he wanted a inos
rigid Investigation of the matter or none a
all. The air was full of rumors of th
evasion of the gambling and liquor law
and charges had been made by The De

M.1. Smith was opposed to this , but as h

Officer Gustavlson was reported as havln

OPENED TO A BIG BUSINESS
Judges Again Fat on ThoSr Eobos and
Open Their Dockets.
LEGAL MILLS GMNDING AT fULL BLAST
Sonic of the Important Cases That Will IIo
llrurit at tlic September 'Icrm of Court
Impeachment Proceeding * Against
The September term ot the district court
opined yesterday with 2,203 cases on the
dockets , as against 2.24f > last May. With
the exception of Judges Hop'wcll and Key-
ser , all of the seven Judges are In their re
spective roams , nhcro they disposed of the
business that was called to their attention.
Judge Hopevsclt had not arrived from his
home In Tckamah , owing to some delay In
the running of the trains. Judge Kcysor was
In Washington , holding- the regular Septem
ber term of court , which will consume ttvo
weeks of his time. After his return he will
go upon the equity bench In room No. T ,
Judge Walton taking the law docket In room
No. 2 and continuing In charge of the same
until hh resignation , which will bo pre
sented about the nitddla ot next mouth.
In the criminal section , Judge Scott had
charge , where he called the docket , after
which he examined the Jurors who will servo
during the next thro ! weeks of the term.
In Calling the docket of criminal causes ,
County Attorney ICaley announced nearly
everything ready for trial , and the entries
were made accordingly.
The case of th * state against Edward Iloso-
water , editor of The I3ee , wherein he Is
charged with criminal libel on an Informa
tion , sworn out by Sophia D nnett , wlfo ot
ex-Sheriff George A. Dennett , the court said
that ho wished the county attorney would
fix the date for thu hearing , as he wanted
to make arrangements with some of ths
other members of the bench to conduct the
trial , Ho said that ho would like to have the
county attorney give at least one week's no-
tic ; . Attorney Ed W. Slmeral , one of the
attorneys for Mr. Uosewatcr , stated to the
court that he was ready and anxious to go to
trial , ami hoped there would bo no post
Dealing with city cases , the court an
nounced that In the future the prosecuting
attornsy would be compelled and required to
set out In all Informations some reference
to the city ordinances violated. The mere
mention that a crime was committed In violation
lation ot the ordinances of the city would
not be sufficient.
Th ? county attorney announced that the
case of the state against Ed Hargershelmer
would be ready for trial , and the order was
made , the date to bo flxcd , and In the mean
time the defendant remains out on bonds.
This Is the case where Hargershelmer was
convicted of forgery. The case was appealed
to the supreme court , where the judgment ot
the lower court was affirmed , the mandate
comin ? back with the Instructions to the
sheriff to take the man lnto hls custody and
execute his writ , which provided for a
five year term In the penitentiary. As soon
as the sheriff took Hargershelmer Into cus
tody , an attorney jvent before the Judge of
the criminal court , and upon making a show
ing succeeded In having the judge declare his
man Insane. The mandate of the supreme
court was set aside , Hnrgershdmer was re
leased on bonds and cited to appear at the
prtsent term of court to answer to the charge
of forgery on o new trial.
In the celebrated Jardlne case , In which the
publishing of the facts thereto sent the edi
tor of this paper and one of th ? reporters to
jail , n nsw order was Issued. The court an
nounced that Jardlne had conducted himself
In an honorable manner since having pleadsd
guilty to the charge of grand larceny. The
court also said that It had been broucht to
his attention that Jardlne was under the In
fluence of liquor at tlif time of the commis
sion of the crime of grand larceny , and that
he was not the real criminal. In view of nil
these things , the court again put off the Im
posing of the sentence , putting Jardlne upon
his good behavior , and requiring him to re
main under bonds.
The case of the state against Sam Payne ,
charged with the murder of Maud Itnbel ,
was called , the attorney for the state an
nouncing that he was ready for trial. No
date , however , was fixed for the hearing.
The contempt case against Bishop Scannell
has been continued until October 1.
To Itupeiicli Miyor IleinU ,
At 2 o'clock In the afternoon Juclgcs"Ilope-
well. Ferguson and Walton went upon the
bench for the purpose of hearing the Im-
pe.achment charges preferred against Mayor
Hernia by Councllmen Hascall and Wheeler.
These charges were filed late Inthe , afternoon
ot July 3 , and wern for the purpose of having
the mayor suspended from oOlce. The
scheme did not work , however , for none of
the judges of the district court would Issue
such an order , consequently the case has had
to come up in the regular way ,
In brief , the charges are as follows :
OfTlclal misconduct as a number of the
Board of Fire and Police Commissioners in
obstructing the enforcement of the law
That ho has conspired with certainper
sons to permit the running ot gambling
places In Omaha , In violation of law.
That on April 21 he was guilty of mal
feasance In office by spending several hun
dred dollars of city funds for Kelly's army
after It had passed through Omaha and was
going through Iowa.
That ho failed , neglected and refused to
appoint a successor to Mr. Cowgtll as city
electrician after the council had rejected the
appointment ot Mr. Cowglll , and left the of
That he was guilty of a misdemeanor In
office by selling Bemls park , In which he
was Interested as owner , to the city of
Omaha , of which he was mayor. That he
was Interested personally and as agent In
the contract for the purchase ot Ilemls park
for $30,000 , and drew $29,750 thereon.
Most of the afternoon was devoted to readIng -
Ing pleadings , consisting of the specifications
by Hascall and Wheeler , and the- answer by
Attorneys for the two councllmen had de
murred to some portions of the answer and
asked that they be allowed to argue them
at the convening of the court this morning.
Attorney Connell for the mayr Insisted that
If the court found that any portion of the-an
swer was Improper , he was willing that It
should be stricken out.
This morning the arguments to strike out
certain portions of the answer will be made ,
after which the Introduction ot testimony
will begin , to continue from day to day until
the 'caso Is submitted.
