NEGLECT PRIMARIES AND CONVENTIONS
t.cRlslntlvu Interference with Municipal
Affairs by Speclftl Iuvi Strongly
Condemned liy the
Member * .
CLEVELAND , May 30. The second day's
session of the National Municipal league
was icsumcd this morning In the rooms o
the chamber of commerce. In Ida mornlnt
Hon. George W. Ochs , mayor of Chattanooga
Tenn.-read a paper on "The Municipal Condi
tlon of Chattanooga. "
Ir. Ochs began by" explaining In detail tin
present government of his city and contlnu
Ing , 'no said :
"Tho legislative Interference with munlcl
pal government by special enactment casino
bo too strongly condemned. The citizens ar
the best Judges of what their community re
quires. No governor lives and none will eve
bo discovered who can choose officials to con
duct the affairs of a city better than It
own people. No present day legislature no
future legislature , unless the cany day
of the millennium are at hand , can proper ! ;
administer ta the government of a city
which , perhaps , the great majority of th
members never saw. "
The speaker then directed his attention t
the reforms accomplished In municipal gov
crnment by these In authority devotln
personal , conscientious attention to the a I
fairs of the corporations , by giving Its bus !
ness the same scrutiny , the same thoughl
the same thorough consideration that tlio
glvo to private or personal concerns. A !
legislative remedies , ho said , are absolute !
futile and will accomplish nothing unless thl
spirit animates the officials.
"Careless , negligent public officers unde
Ideal laws will not ? lop , waste , prevent ej
travagance , or reform vicious method ;
Prudent , unremitting attention to details ur
der the most pernicious laws can complete !
icvolutionize expenses. It Is not so muc
a question of methods ns of mora's. A "fc
grabber , " a dishonest official , will find
way under any system. "
MISFORTUNE OF BAD CITIZENSHIP.
Continuing , he said : "Tho misfortune I
our cities Is the bad citizenship of goc
citizens. They shout to the world the
woeful lamentations ; they sob In dire dli
trcus over the evils that prevail. They ai
reduced to these Uchrymosal lapses In tl
wrong places either beneath some hlgl
vaulted tcmplo as this , or on the night i
election or primaries when candidates ai
nominated. They pour out their sorrows I
the bosom of their families In their comfor
able drawing rooms , and on election df
fhey go fishing or become so absorbed In tl
contemplation of the evils that prevail th ;
they actually forget to vote. Study the ele
tlon figures of all the cities of the Unlti
States ; compare the vote for president , f <
congress , for governor , to the vote for mayi
or aldermen , and what do you find ? 1
nlno cases out of ten the presidential vo
Is twice as largo or three times as large i
the vote for mayor. It Is BO In my city , ai
I presume J am safe In saying that It
the case at the homo of nearly every do !
gate hero pressnt. Whence comes the losi
Certainly not from the machine , the wa
heelers , the election b'hoys.
"Tho good citizen must bo taught that i
city government can rise above the level
thopo governed. He must be taught th
theories of civil government do not work r
forms. Sentiment Is good enough and th
orloj ore fine educators. But while sen
ment and theories nro diffused through
precinct , perhaps In the course of yea
votes will sweep a whole city on a day. "
Papers were also read by Rev. Gregory
Powell , secretary of the Municipal league
Omaha ; Luc-Urn B. Swift of Indlanapol
William Kennedy , mayor of Allegheny , P ;
and Hon. E. J. Blandln of Cleveland.
Mr. Powell's paper on "Tho Municipal Co
Jltlon of Omaha" was :
" the postmaster
"Forty-one years ago
Omaha carried around his office In his hi
Today there is nearlng completion a postoffi
building which occupies a whole block , a
will cost about $2,000.000. The atraggll
Indian village has become a city of 150,0
people , and of this growth nearly four-lift
has come In the past fifteen years. In 181
thirty years ago , the poet , Saxe , wrote , aft
a visit to Omaha , the following verses :
"Hnst ever been to Omaha ,
Where Hews the dark Mlssqurl down ,
Where four strong horses scarce can drz
An empty wagon through the town ?
"Whero sand Is blown from every mou
To 1111 your eyes and ears nml throat
Where nil the steamers nro aground ,
And all the shanties are afloat ?
"Where taverns have nn anxious guest
For every corner , shelf and crack.
With half the people going west ,
And all the others going back ?
"Whcro theaters nro nil the run.
And bloody scalpers come to trade ,
Where everything Is overdone ,
And everybody underpaid ? "
Please remember these verses were wr
ten of Omaha by a stranger on a wild a
windy day full thirty years ago , In IS
and not In 1S95.
"A city leaping from 30,000 In 1SSO
over 100,000 In 1890 , located where the s
bhlnos after he has lighted up Chicago a
St. Louis In the very heart of the boundli
west , with agricultural , range and mine :
resources which promise continuous coli
sal growth , it Is not strange that a c
eager to woo to Its budding enterprises t
venturesome capital of older and more cc
servatlvo communities should , amidst t
bustle and confusion of such times , ban
away rights and franchises of such gr <
value that now In the quieter days of sol
reflection we are led , like Esau of old ,
weep so readily we parted with our blrl
right. Omaha has been the headquarti
of the Union Pacific railroad for over tlili
years. It Is not to be wondered If son
thing of the same spirit dominant in tl
and kindred western Institutions should fl
expression In municipal affairs.
PRESENT FORM OF CITY GOVEUNMEIv
"Tho election for the city Is held on I
same day with the general election. Oma
Is the only municipality In the state
which this Is the case. Wo elect a may
cleric , treasurer , comptroller , police Juc
and nlno councllmen at largo every t
years , and In the years alternating with t
general city election wo elect nlno count
men , one from each ward. Our city couni
therefore , consists of eighteen alderni
who are paid $ SOO a year each. The Bo :
of Public Works , consisting of a clialnr
and two commissioners. Is appointed by 1
mayor and confirmed by the council. C
Board of Fire and Police has been made
of flvo men , appointed by the governor
the state , excepting the mayor , who Is
offlclo. Its presiding officer. It Is trl-pai
san and Is made up at present of two
publicans , two populists and ono ilemocr
Our Board of Park Commissioners Is <
pointed by the district court and may
said to bo entirely out of politics. (
Boaid of Health Is strictly In politics. L
the Board of Public Works , It consists
the mayor , a health commissioner , chief
police , plumbing Inspector and two coun
men , chairman of the streets and sow
committees. The health commissioner
appointed' by the mayor , with th.o cone
rence of the council.
"While wo do not believe * our city govc
inont Is the worst , neither Uo wo regard
a * perfect. We could wisely cut our Beef
of Aldermen In two and thus have nine
stead of eighteen : ncn , as at present.
"We suffer also from too great a dlvls
of authority and responsibility In the ei
utlvo departments. Only with * the cons
of the council can the mayor appoint
city attorney , city engineer , UIP Board
Public Works aird the health coinmlssloi
There Is a constant contest on between
departments and the council. When '
wurU Is done the fault cannot bo traced
any ono In particular. All Inspectors arc
pointed by our political Board of 1'u !
Works and the result Is this Important
partment Is feeding ground for parti
cormorants without proper regard for tl
quallflcalong. The came Is Hue of
Board of Health. The health commUnlo
Is a partisan choice and the positions
Inspector are meted out to the various mi
bcrs of the board for their friends.
MnN.u'KD nr CORPORATIONS.
"I'mnclilsed reparations , living upon
right * and prlvlleeei clveiv by the city ca
ell. are a constant menace to nooJ cave
ment In Omaha. They are the ring. Before
the city election , In the fall ot ' 93 , I have
It on good authority the various corporations
held a meeting , through their representatives ,
and agreed upon the men who should be
supported for the city council , and agreed
also , to stand by and help each other. When
the smoke and noise of the election wrre
passed It was found that they were In the
saddle. This council would , of course , only
confirm such men for the IVxird cf Public
Works as were agreeable to the corporations
and contractors , which made their election
possible. Thanks to a mayor who kcuws
how to exercise the veto power , these forces
have been kept well In check. Honn rule
for the city Is a greatly neiitod leform
with us , but these corporations defeat It
In the state legislature. The wnstant med
dling with the city charter by a stale legis
lature , wholly unacquainted with the ; ieeJ
of the city , Is a vexatious rourco of trouble ,
Last winter , earnest , thoughtful men worked
for months upon amendments to the churtct
and had their work so bungled in the s-tatr
legislature that In mer'-y to the city the
governor vetoed the wholj thing.
"We need our state constitution st
amended that franchises could only be given
by vote of thf people , and that all Impov'anl
changes In the administration ot the dtj
government shall In like manner , be refer'
red to the voters for ratification.
"We suffer also from the confusion of oui
city government with state and natlona
Issues , and all the more because our munlcl
pal election Is held at the same time as thi
general election. At the last election oui
city papers scarcely devoted a line to thi
local Interests , and , Indeed , quietly the clt )
and state offices were traded In a shame
ful and conscienceless way.
"Another hindrance with us Is the Intro
ductlon of the sectarian principle Into oui
city government. I know no more Immedl
ate obstacle In the way of good governmen
than this. A certain element would dls
qualify a man of a particular religious faltl
from holding any office , as though all tha
Is needed to have honest , efficient muni
clpal government Is to elect mrn to offic ,
who believe members of that particular re
llgious communion should not hold office , am
that they themselves should. If all that I
claimed to be true It Is only curing one evi
with another. As long as this secret , politic
Irreligious element Is dominant In our city
the day of good and efficient governmen
EFFORTS TO IMPROVE.
"Our city charter has been repaired fror
time to time , and I believe It ID better no ;
than ever before. Our Municipal league
which Is somewhat closely patterned after th
plan of the Civic Federation of Chicago , ha
be n at work about a year. Public meet
Ings have been held and some literature du
trlbuteJ , to make the voters acquainted wit
the movement. We have passed through on
election end have had , we believe , a dc
tormlning hand In the election of some goo
men to the city council. We have take
some part In the discussion of amendment
to our city charter. Wo have Just had ou
annual meeting and have elected a stron
central council , with a secretary who wl
devote all his time to the work of munlclp ;
reform. Our situation Is much like that c
the Israelites of old. The Philistines (
corporate greed and partisan spoils ai
camped not about , but within , our city. It
deed , they have taken our citadel , the clt
hall , anl have trained their guns so th :
they easily commanl every street and alle ;
Our people , like that anc'ent ' people , quali
and tremble before the mighty host. Fc
years wo have paid a heavy tribute to tlic
municipal freebooters. Civic pride has lat
guUhed and wo have feared that our clt
must always remain cawed and liopclc :
under the tyrant's heel. But a shephot
boy has come among us who believes I
God and In righteousness , and whose rlsln
Indignation has given birth to a great pu
pose , that In the name of God and the pei
plo he will go out and slay the giant ar
put to rout the army of the 'hlllstlnes. Tl
shepherd boy Is the reform organlzatloi
calleJ the Municipal league. It docs not EI
out In the partisan armor of a Saul , bi
rather with the simple sling of munlclpa
non-partisan , non-sectarian city governmen
Wo have five stones for our sling , too , i
rather rocks of civic truth. They are i
follows : First , , 'Bvery citizen must tal
his part In the government of the city. ' Ai
ether Is that 'city government Is buslnes
not politics , ' and therefore a third Is 'tl
separation of city from state and nation
Issues. ' Our fourth missile Is that 'the . = er
Ice of the city should be entirely on the mer
basis , ' and our fifth Is that 'the city mu
own and operate , In the Interests of all t !
people , what franchlsed corporations no
monopolize for their private enrichment. '
may not be this year , and It it may not 1
next , but In less time than It took David
work his way from the position of shei
herder to be Israel's king we expect to se
municipal reform upon our civic throne.
"Indeed , the prospects are very good
this time that our city election next fall w
bo strictly non-partisan. The elemen
favorable to a business rather than a pa
ttsan administration are coming together i
a municipal reform platform , and we si
cerely hope and believe that Omaha will
found well up near the head In the gre
world wldo civic procession toward the Ide
In municipal government. "
At the afternoon session Vice Preside
Charles Richardson of the National Munlcip
league road an Interesting paper on "Mur
clpal Government of National Parties. " I
spoke , In part , as follows :
"Although the average citizen appears
bo without any very adequate Idea of elth
the nature or Importance of good city gover
ment , " Mr. Richardson said In the beginnin
"or the proper means of securing It , v
may assume tint a largo majority of tl
voters are really In favor of It. If this w
not the case there would be little use of t
tempting any kind of reform work exce
that of a purely educational character. It
Is the case. It Is obvious that In order
make the wishes of the majority effect ! '
wo must have a system which will cnab
them to unite for the nomination and ole
tlon of good municipal candidates. "
PARKS UNFIT FOR CITY CONTROL.
r After discussing the method of politic
nomination of candidates for public olfic
Mr. Richarson continue ! : "Even If tl
machinery of the leading parties could
so purified and Improved and their voters
educated and stimulated that their nomln
tlons woull be really representative It won
still bo true that a national party Is as un
.for the government of a city as an ax Is f
digging potatoes or a spade for cutting ilov
treoa. The real Issue In municipal electlo
relates solely to the management of munli
pal business , and the custom ot allowii
such contests to be decided by combats b
tween national parties Is just as Irrelova
and absurd as the mediaeval plan of havli
a battle between two mall-clad knights In ord
to decide which of their lady lovoa was t
most beautiful. "
Continuing the speaker sold : "No o
who Is familiar with city politicians ai
ward workers can suspect them of beii
actuated as a class by a genuine dovotli
to great principles. There are few , if an
whoso moral perceptions are not blind
by their anxiety for personal and partlsi
success and by their belief that that su
cess can only bo achieved by .the aid
those whose assistance must bo purclms
with public offices , illegal protection ,
opportunities for public plunder. It
therefore essential for the prosperity of o
natlona ! parties that they should be fore
to abandon municipal elections , which ha
been the chief attraction and the main MI
port of their present masters. Much mlg
bo said of the advantages of munlclr
parties In teaching the voters to consld
their local Interests and to be guided
their own opinions. Instead of acting as t
dumb , driven cattle ot unprincipled boss. .
The now system would certainly tend
develop Intelligent discrimination and 1
dependence In the voters and a much lars
proportion of our citizens would recognl
the Importance of honesty and ability
rd local officials. It no Intruding thought
national issues could blind them to t
direct connection b twecn their votes a
the sizeof their tax bills , or the heal
prosperity and b nuty of their city. T
more we study the practical effects of a i
publican form of government the clearer v
wo perceive that It Is the- most powerful

ceived at the Pacific Mall Steamship com
pany's offices give more iletallol and graphic
Information concerning the ( rightful disaster
which befell the Collma.
Soventy-flve miles below San Bias a hurri
cane was encounteroJ , and It was debated as
to whether or not tlio ship should put about
to gain partial shelter In the shallow and
treacherous Dandcras bay , which has rocks
near Its entrance , or whether It were better
to push out to ea.
One local Mexican passenger , Don Matlas
Moreno , testifies that while cautiously steer
ing for what to all appearances was the
usual entrance a slight tremble was felt to
go through the ship. It was so faint that
It wao hardly apparent to the trained senses
of the pilots anil captain. The captain or
dered a ellght change In the course ami gave
other directions , which were obeyed by the
officers and crew.
In a very few seconds after the keel
grounded on a rock tightly , and there was
at once great excitement among the ofllccrs
and crew and fear on the part of the few
passengers on dock. Following the danger
signal , in less than ten seconds the great
ship crunched on an unknown reef and a
shudder ran through the hull from bow to
The passengers sprang from their berths
In terror anJ ran out on the decks , screaming
and praying In a paroxysm of fear as the
nwful truth bagan to burst van them. Ths
wind howled and a dense pall of fog hung
over the ship as she was tossed by the
surges and began to pound herself to pieces
upon the rocks. She rote and fell three
times , and then a crash was heard This
was followed by siicnco for the space of a
quarter of a minute , during which time only
low sobbing was heard and muflled prayers.
SCRAMBLE FOR THE I30ATS.
"Man the boats ! " trumpeted the captain ,
after a short Interval In which another crash
was heard from beneath the water. The
boats hnd previously been made ready with
all the life savers placed at convenient places ,
although covered from the view of nervous
passengers. Within three minutes of the
first crash In the -111111 the ship began to real
rom Its upright balance , to settle and to

The scenes about the lifeboats wcro Inde-

blalnablo the panic-mad passengers anJ the
hip's force struggled for first place , although

f the sailors or ship's people lost their pres-

o saving the passengers.
There wcro a number of children on the
lassenger list and quo of these was pitched
iverboard Into the frothing sea by a frenzied
athcr , who aimed , for pno of the lifeboats
while still upon the davits.
