legislative ticket. The primaries to- elect
delegates to this convention will be held next
Friday and caucuses were held last evening
for the nomination of delegates.

up tliclr lightning rods ns soon as thu state

have gained Beve-ral laps over their demo
cratic brethren. The following named gen
tlemen have shied their castors Into the ring
for place In the state senate : T D. Crane ,
C. N. Powell , E. M. Bartlett , C. H Bates ,

Gustavo Anderson , Charles limner , R S
Uerlln nnd James II. Kynsr , while there are
fully as many more who have hid their lights

Until yeMerd-y the democrats were
as shy as a lot of school girls ,
as ow > ng to the administration and
antl-ndmlnlstratlon flight they did not
know where they were at. But since that
has passed Into history and Bryan has walked
away with the big end they have snooped
down In drove after drove , with enough can
didates to clean up the whole platter.
The men who are In the fight for the
senate are. George W. Ames , W. S. Tclker ,
Charles Brown , Eli Doud , II C. Miller , W

themselves by taking places In the house

iiitl-Iry ) > n dcmoctata and republicans ycs-

Mr. Council granted the prosecution the
right to Introduce Chris at any time , nnd
lie defense begun the refutation of the
charges ol Managers Wheeler and Il.-uc.Ul.
As an evidence of the merits ot the cate
Qgalust the major , Hascnll x\as overheard
a remark that he didn't believe they "could
stick Bemls anhow , but. that the blame
would now rest on the court relative to the
runn ng of g.mbllng houses In Omaha. "
Tin- first \\lti-CEs for the defendant was
Guy Ocane , sccrolary of the park comnila-
slon , who gnvo n recorded history of the
inirchaso of liemls park In 1S90 , after the
lark ccnimlss on hcd requested propositions
'rom laud owners , J H. Dumont , secretary
of the Itemls Land company , offered to sell
his land for $ ' ! 3,000. The commission In
structed Its secretary to tend to the city
xnincll a recommendation that this tract
ID purcliatcd by the city at once for a
lubllc paik. A copy of the report WES
read and admitted In evidence. A number
ot tjtii'Etions were asked about the minor
tleta Is of the purchase of this tract , which
went to show that beyond thu fact that lie
was president of the IJcmis L'ml company ,
the major had notlilnp ; to do with the sale ,
and the sale was also perfectly legitimate
This caused the prosecution to offer a series
of objections , which were overruled bj the
Dr. Georpc I , Miller , ex-president of the
noard of Park Commissioners , testified that
he had been president of the park board
slnco Its organization , until May of this year ,
when he was appointed collector of customs
He had made a careful study of the park
question and nt the request of the council
a special meeting was arranged between the
council and park hoard for the purpose of
discussing the voting of bonds for the purchase -
chase of a series of tracts of land for cltj
park purposes The suitable tracts of land
were also d'scus ' cd , among which was ttie
llcmls tract , which was recommended as be
ing available and suitable for a city park
Ho said that the board objected to the price ,
$35,000 , asked for these lots and made an offc'
of $25,000. A compromise was finally of
fectcd by which the tract was purchased for
5-iO.OOO All these negotiations , with the
probable exception of the filing of the deed ,
took place under ex-Major Cushlng's admin
istration In the cross-examination an at
tempt was made to show that a donation to
the city of a small tract of land by the Bcmls
Land company prior to the purchase of the
park was as an Inducement to the park board
to purchase a larger tract , but It was shown
that the city accepted numerous donation *
of land for park purposes In other parts ol
the city , from other companies and individ
Judge Wakeley testified that he took an
Interest In the voting of bonds and the pur
chase of land for parks , being n taxpajcr and
having the public welfare In view. Us said
that prior to the voting of bonds there had
been a great deil of public discussion re
garding the suitability of cei tain tracts ol
land for park purposes , iimong which was
Demls park The propositions were well un
derstood by the public , being discussed Ir
thu papers , on the streets , bj real estati
men ami property owners In general. The lo
cation and prices were thoroughly dlscussei
so that every Intelligent citizen must ha\ <
been aware of the use to which the nionej
obtained by the sale of the bonds would In
GeorRo W. Llnlng r a former member el
the park board , testified that < lurlng his
term as a mcmb r of the hoard the parti
sjltein nf Omaha was discussed. When tin
board was organized the city had only on <
public resort , Hanscom park , and the boarc
solicited donations. Several Individuals am
companies responded , and a sinal
tract was given to the city by the Ilemli
Land company. AVh n the subject of pur
chasing additional tracts for park purpose :
came up It was discussed and negotiation !
entered Into by which Bemls park wn :
eventually purchased by the city for aboui
$110,000 to carry out and complete the plans
of the park board for a complete park am
boulevard system.
The cross-examination of Mr. Llnlngei
was continued In iho afternoon , but beyom
the facts clcited In the direct examination
nothing new was developed. Managers
Wheeler and Hascall were absent.
Chris Spcclit was put on the stand nn <
said that he was a member of the cltj
council In February. 1S92. when a proposl
tton was made to the council to purchasi
Demls park The proposition was rejectee
when It first came up for consideration. Hi
mada a motion to reconsider the matter twi
weeks later. He said that the reason hi
changed his mind was that he resided litho
the north end of the city nnd he wanteil i
park there Ho consulted with Dr. Miller
the North Omaha Improvement club and othe
.Interested parties , and found that the Heml
park tract would be part of the city's parl
system. He withdrew his opposition am
voted for the proposition. He sa d that Con
ncll was opposed to the puichase of th <
Dlstnn tract.
Judge ) Clarkson tried to make Specht sa ;
that Bemls and Conncll were opposed t
the D ston tract and forced him to vote fo
the Itemls park tract , but the witness denlei
this allegation and Clarkson tried to Im
peach his own witness , but failed , as Spech
did not change his story. Clarkson then ac
cused Specht of attempting to evade ques
tions In order to shield the defense Clark
son was told that he would not be allowed t
Impeach his own witness , and then he ar
gued for the admission of hearsay evidence
but this was refused. Connell protestei
against Clarkson's makingmlsstatcment
in Ills arguments relative to what Mayo
Hernia was accused of doing The gist o
SreclU'fl testmony was to the effect that h
Knew absolutely nothing tending to shov
that the mayor had dishonored his olflce o
been guilty of dishonest practices.
The prosecution said that they would no
Introduce any evidence relating to tli
charges of conspiracy to unlawfully diver
the city's funds In providing food for Kelly'
Commonweal army when It passed ttiroug ]
Omaha In April. Councilman Uechel test I
fled that a meeting was held In the mayor'
office on the day previous to the nrrho
of the army , at which the mayor , city at
torney , physician , engineer , Chairman Win
spear of the Board of Public Works , th
witness and three councllmen were presenl
Hascall nnd Wheeler and the remainder o
the council are said to have been cnjoyin
themselves on a Junketing trip to San Pran
Cisco at this lartlcular time. It was con
ceded , by the officials present nt the mcetlni
In the mayor's office that this was a eas
el uTgehl rieceiBily , and measures must t
taken at once to provide the army \vll ]
food- This was agreed JeTby l | ol the ol
ficlals , and the major was authorized to ox
pTnd not over 1100 for food for Kelly's men
This constituted the alleged conspiracy li
squandering the cl'ty'afiipda. * -sr .i.
J. li. Oumont. necretarf of the Bernl
Land company , testified that Mayor Ilonil
was elected In the fall of 1691 and too !
charge of the office In January , 1892. Thl
was after the land company had receive
notice from the park commissioners ' ,
naVe a proposition ) In Iho city for the ealo

MEDAL OF HONOR. Mercer Will Ask tlio Cciicrn-
nifiit lo Itrunril l.nclnror Knot.
Engineer Root , the brave Jim Bludsoc of
the Minnesota forest fires , is to have n
magiiHiccnt medal voted him by congress.
Comparatively little opposition to such a re
ward of heroic fidelity to duty as Root dis
played Is anticipated
The Idea of Mus ghl g cmgieislonal recog
nition to the hero of the HlncKley holocaust
who saved a train filled with human fr.Isht
originated with Congressman Dave Mercer
of this city , who will father the bill nnd push
It through nt the next session of congress
"I propose to Introduce- bill at the next
session of congress to give James Root a
imilal for his bravery during the Hlncklay
feirfsi fires , when , as engineer of n passenger
train , he- defied death by heroically sticking
to his post and running tl.e train between
vvnlls of flames to a place of safety os well
as saving the lives of many Scandinavians
who were fie-lng from Hlnckley nnd leavliig
their homes behind them , n mass of ruins.
Cor press 1ms honored men nnd women for
saving life on the water. I sec no reason
why such brave railroad men as Root should
not be cntltl d to the same recognition I
was In Minneapolis during the forest fires
nnd heard Root's name universal praised.
I made up my mind right then that such
phenomenal heroism des'neil congressional
recognition. Months may pass and
Root's name may be temporarily forgotten
but he Is too good a man to bo lost In
oblivion , and I have detennlned that rail
road heroes Bli.ill lie 'honored as well as
marina heroes , nnd , while I am at It , I'll
Just make it a double header and see that
the fiicman and entire crew are olllclally
recognized by congress for their brave and
efficient services on that Ill-starr d occasion. "
