Jtlie Itcatoiii for Tliulr Action.
A great hue and cry lias been raised In
certain quarters by the recent wholesale
dismissal of officers and patrolmen from the
police force and n concerted effort has been
made during the past ten days to create
popular sympathy for the men who were
summarily dropped from the police pay roll.
While everybody concedes that the com
mission Is only carrying out the spirit and
purpose of the recommendations of the grand
jury last winter , the mayor and police com
mission are being roundly abused for fear
lessly Aulng M'.clr duty.
Incidentally every removal and appoint
ment Is charged up to The Hoc and Us editor ,
who In a sort of bogle man to not only the
howling dervish gang , but all of the other
Chief of Police White was seen at his
office this morning and expressed his reasons
for reorganization of the force as follows :
"I recommended the discharge of these men
for good reasons. They were fired simply because -
cause they were chronic agitators and dls-
organizers whose dismissal was for the good
of the service. Mr. Uosewater has never ,
either directly or Indirectly , sought to Influ
ence me In the discharge of the old men
named or the selection of the new ones. I am
not subservient to Mr. Rosewater , or any
other newspaper man , In attending to my
duty as chief of police. I linvo been doing
considerables Investigating on my own hook
since I came to Omaha and I have ascertained
from reputable citizens , If you pleise , that
the men dismissed were too much Interested
ID politics to make good policemen.
"It makes no difference to me whether
a man Is an A. I' . A , a Catholic ,
nn Infidel , or a FIJI , If ho Is an
agitator and political jawsmlth he has
got to give , up his star. I don't propose to
have ward politicians In uniform. I
don't Intend to have officers attending
political meetings In uniform unless they are
called there to preserve order. I don't pro
pose to have the station turned Into a nur
sery for politics , and I don't propose to
nllow men going out on their beats with
hatred In their hearts for one another. There
has been too much disorganizing , too much
backcapplng , too much horse play among the
police here. Politics and the police must
and shall be divorced. Policemen have a
perfect right to vote , 'tis true , but they have
no right as policemen to hold curbstone cau
cuses In uniform and allow politics to Inter
fere with their duly. The policemen of
Omaha under my administration are networking
working for anybody except the people o
Omaha who pay taxes and pay salaries to
policemen to preserve the peace and dignity
of this city. I won't allow either politics or
religion to Interfere with their duty as offi
cers. The records prove that I have not
been Influenced by the men's politics or their
religion , or Mr. Ilosewatcr , but by their
pernicious activity as agitators. I Intend to
put the police force of Omaha on a metro
politan basis , and I think all good citizens
will uphold my action. "
Mayor Bcmls It Is a Ho for any one to
assert that I was Influenced by Mr. Hose-
water or by any political preference In
selecting new policemen and discharging
others.Mr. . Uosewater had referred the
boajy td the record of Haze , which was
looktd "Up , and after duo consideration my
vote to dismiss Haze was prompted by tin
result of that Investigation. Mr. Hosewatei
lias never sought to control any appoint
merits or removals on the force.
Commissioner Smith said : "I have voted
In the affirmative and with the majority In
each Instance except three for the removal !
and appointments on the police force. I dk
so without solicitation of Mr. Hosewater urn
In fact he has never sought to Influence m
In this respect. I believe In sustaining tli
chief In his desire to reorganize the do
purtment. "
Commissioner Tlrown I never was ap
approached or requested or in fact In any
manner directly or Indirectly communlcatei
with by Mr. Hoscwater or his friends re-
gardlng the appointments to or removals froir
the police force.
Commissioner Deaver Viewed from a con
uervatlvc standpoint , the necessity of polio
reorganization has been apparent for semi
time , for the good of the service generally
Mr. Hosewater has never sought to dictate o
control the appointment t > r removal of men o
the force , with the possible exception c
Haze , whose record rather sustained the sug
gestlon. The commissioners , or father a ma
jority of them , have voted to Improve police
service on their own responsibility and have
no occasion to regret an action which was
taken for the Interests of the citizens of
Omaha who believe In separating police and

According to the foregoing , which can be
verified by reference to the original applica
tions on file In the odlca of the pollco com
missioners , twenty-two men have been ap
pointed to fill vacancies on the pollco force.
Of this number nineteen are native born
The blanks which an applicant for a post-
tlon on the police force fills out , contains a
number of printed questions wnlch must be
truthfully answered. There Is no Interroga
tive pertaining to the religion or politics of
the applicant.
Each aspirant for a policeman's star must
have five tcpiitablo reference1) or endorsers.
Of the twenty-two men recently appointed
to positions on the pollco force , five are
Catholics , sixteen are Protestants , nnd one
professes no religion. The total number of
applicants for positions on the police fores ,
( lied for these vacancies , wns 200. Of this
number ninety candidates were examined.

Central Mississippi It must bo borne In
mind has these distinguishing characteristics
lat are of great value to the settler ; that Is
3 say :
Fruits of all kinds grow luxuriantly and In
bumlanee. Krults fresh from the vines and
ees arc gathered eight months In the year ,
'egetubles can be had fresh from the garden
ivelve months In the year.
And while often the pastures In Illinois
nd other western states are parched and
rlcd and farmers are compelled to haul
ater for their stock and feed them from the
rain fields , our pastures are covered with
rcsh , green , natural grasses and all cattle
re fat enough for beef. It Is not only the
aso this year , but I have found It so every
ear slnco I came here. I have never seen
necessary to feed stock In tlio pastures
nd nowhere Is water more abundant than
i this section , making It one of the finest
lock countries In America.
We can raise any cereal or product that
an be produced In any of the northern or
, 'cstern states nnd a great many other
lilngs that they cannot produce. I have
teach trees three years old from the seed
hat have borne- this year from one peck to
half bushel per tret- , and I have bearing
rape vines three years old from the cut-
Another great advantage Is that we have
Ircct railroad communication to all north-
rn nnd western markets , furnishing cheap
ransportatlon for vegetables , fruits nnd
roducts of the truck farm. We have lines
o eastern markets and we are close with
hroitgh transportation to the southern and
least markets , which are the best In the
Jnltcd Slates.
As a mild and delightful climate this Is
iiirpassed by none , not being as hot in sum
mer as northern Illinois , and seldom , If
! \-er , docs the mercury reach within 10 do-
rees of zero In winter. People suffering
, vlth consumption , catarrh and bronchitis
nd other throat and lung troubles find nl-
lost Instant relief and In many cases permn-
ent cures , while scarlet fever and diphtheria
ro unknown here.
I would say to young men seeking homes
who nre unable to Invest In the high priced
lands In the north and west , come south
ivhero you will find Improved lands close to
good markets for less than you can buy a
'lomestead and Improve the raw lands on the
'rentier , where you arc compelled to hau.
high priced lumber nnd fuel a long distance
o Improve the lands for which you hav
paid more than you can get farms nil ready
nnd fenced , with wells supplied with pure
fresh water , comfortable houses , orchards
and beautiful forests at the very door , which
afford fuel and good range and shelter for
In the west they are exposed to the bleak
winds and bllzzerds , with frequently no
other shelter than a barbed wire fence to
pllt tho-wlld winds and storms.
Here a man will find the comforts of life
prepared for him ns soon as ho arrives ,
where he Is free from such pests ns flics ,
mosquitoes , buffalo gnats and green herd
flies , such as he and his stock have to
contend with In the north and west.
He will also find agreeable and desirable
neighbors , willing and ready to promote his
Interests In every way , and close to good
schools and churches , Instead of living on
he vast prairies , with hero nnd there an
occasional house In the dim distance.

i-antages offered you In this Orchard Homes

Several Weighty Subjects Ulsciusoil anil
1'hmlly UUpajod of.
Chief of Police White occupied a seat as a
member of the Board of Health for the first
time yesterday. Ho was Introduced to the
members and the Insjectors present by Mayor
Demls. He listened with as much equanimity
as possible to the highly edifying dlscussfons
for which the board has become famous.
The first weighty subject that demanded
consideration was the request of a citizen of
thn Seventh ward who wanted psrmlssion to
put In an earth closet , Instead of making
connections with the sewer. This matter was
dUcussnJ In a statesmanlike manner for
nearly an hour. At length It was decided
that the subject was too Important to be thus
quickly disposed of , and another consideration
was postponed until the next meeting.
Property owners complained that the street
sweepers were dumping their refuse on va
cant lots In various parts of the city without
first obtaining permission from the owners.
A resolution was passed In which the Hoard
of Public Works was requested to co-operate
with the Hoard of Health In arranging for a
satisfactory disposal of the accumulations of
the streets.
Dr. Towno reported that there was a seri
ous prevalence of typhoid fever. There had
been ten cases reported since July 1. He
recommended that the people be urged to boll
their drinking water and not to use ICG water
for drinking purposes. Much of the Ice was
said to have an unsanitary flavor and the
water could be coole.l Just as effectively by
placing the Ice In contact 'vlth the outsldo of
the pitcher or Jug , Inbtenl of putting It In
the water.
A resolution to ask the city council for an
appropriation for the purpose of cutting the
weeds on vacant lo > was referred to the
cotlncllmanlc members of the board.
Tlie council will bo asked to provide for a
system of fees to be charged for certified
copies of } he records of the Hoard of Health.

II. Houser Is n smoother swindler than
! ie pollco thought him when the first reports
ere received. Ho passed bogus checks on
tanfleld & Co , and the Globe Clothing corn-
any Monday evening after banking hours
nd got nwny with the profits of his work ,
bout $20. before the olHcers could get action
i the case.
Vigorous search in Omaha. South Omaha
nd Council Bluffs failed to locate
he forger and yesterday another crop
f his victims appeared at the police sta-
on with their tales of woe. On Monday
veiling Uouser went Into I'rlsman's cloth-
g store and made a small purchase , offer-
g In payment a check for $3. He received
Is change , $2.85 , In good coin and Prlsman
as the check , which was drawn on the
erclinnts National bank. The check was
irown out this morning and the case placed
n the hands of the police.
I'rlsman had hardly left the police station
hen Charles Gooder came In and wanted
o bo put onto the process by which he
ould get $15 that he had given Houser , who
as known to him as E. Cohen , a collector
f bad debts. Houser , or Cohen , called at
coder's place of business nnd took a con-
ract to collect some bad claims. Ho gave
! io name of E. Cohen and had printed
: ards , giving his office ns 320 North Slx-
eenth street. On the card wns printed In
ed letters , "Hemoved to New York Life
ulldlng July 15. " Gooder gave the col-
cctor a bunch of claims and ho went out.
le returned on Monday and reported that
o had made collections amounting to $11.
lo did not have the cash , but had accepted
check for $25 , made payable to E. Cohen
nd signed by H. Houser. He explained
hat he had secured the paper In the course
if the day's work and asked Gooder to
: ash It , retnlnlng the $11 due him ns the
esult of Cohen's efforts ns n collector.
Gooder had never hoped to see that $11
gain and ho paid Cohen $1 commission and
gave him $11 In change on the- check and
i-oted him a crackerjack In the collection
Mr. Cohen , alias Houser , Is still missing.

The Polish Catholic church troubles have
broken out In a new spot , or several new-

had the appearance of a hall on n Pulaskl
nnlversary celebration. Half a hundred
'ollsh women and girls , dressed In their
holiday attire , were at hand to tell all they
now nnd have heard about the trouble that
'ather Karmlnskl had with some of his
neighbors on July 5.
Father Karmlnskl Is charged with having
assaulted Martha Engler , Ignez Heptowskl Is
accused of having used abusive and pro-
"ano language , Mrs. Joseph Herarzwlskl Is
charged with having assaulted Martha Eng-
'cr , Agnes Henarzewskl Is said to have used
obscene language , and Mrs. Rakowskl Is In
jail for disturbing the peace. The others
are simply witnesses.
The stories don't agree at all , but the pre
ponderance of evidence Indicates that there
ivas a row. Father Karmlnskl says the fol
lowers of Bishop Scannell have tried to make
his life a burden. They congregated in front
of his place , and he went out and told them
to leave or he would make It warmer for
them than It was on the day before , or some
threat of that kind. Then they had him ar
rested for assault. The girls swear that they
were standing on the corner talking when the
reverend father came out and called them

court on a warrant charging him with arson.
Detectives have been at work and have found

the baled hay , with which the car was
loaded. The complaint waa sworn to by
Twamley & Sons , the owners of the hay ,
which was partially destroyed. The police
claim to have further evidence that will
connect Wills with the large number of
fires that have occurred recently In the hay

The viaduct question will not down , and
the members of the cltjr council who repre
sent the southsldersiare having no end of
trouble. For the past year the Sixteenth
street viaduct has been sufficient to keep
them busy trying to satisfy the demands of
their Impatient constituency , and now that
the final arrangements have been made for
repairing that structure , their attention Is
occupied by the Indignant expostulations of
the Eleventh street property owners.
The latter seem to think that they have
een misled In some way. They have been
ssured that tbe Eleventh street viaduct mat
er was In the courts , and that nothing could
ie done until a decision was rendered. But
lioy observe with angry suspicion that the
ouncll has been able to take measures to
epalr the Sixteenth street structure , and
"ley are asking why nice , fresh bated bread
liould bo dished up to the Sixteenth street
eople while they are compelled to be satls-
ed with the legendary stone.
The Eleventh street viaduct his bsen prac-
cally closefl to .he public for the past three
ears. At first only vehicle traffic was sus-
endcd , but In Decsmbcr , 1894 , the struc-
ire was closed entirely , thus Indicting a
naterlal hardship on the dwellers south of
"ie viaduct. For more than a year past the
matter has been allowed to rest , while the
ty has vainly endeavored to obtain n de-
Islon from the courts by which the rall-
oads could be compelled to repair the struc-
Suit was originally brought In United
talcs court to secure an order directing the
ecelvers of the Union Pacific to take steps
o repair the viaduct. Judge Cornish , as
naster In chancery , decided that no suclr
rder could properly be Issued until .a similar
trder wns obtained against the B. & M. Then
" : io city went Into the district court with an
ppllcatlon for a writ of mandamus to com-
iel the Chicago , Burlington & Qulncy rnll-
oacl to do Its share toward repairing the
laduct. The railroad contested the right
f the court to Issue such a writ , nnd the
iase Is now In the supreme court. The evl-
'ence has been submitted , but the Judges
ave not seen fit to hand down their opinion.
In the meantime the south side residents
ave waxed wroth and they assert that their
nterests are not being protected. Councilmen -
men Lcmly , Gordon and Kment represent this
cntlment In the council , and they do not
.esltato to declare that the city Is not likely
o get nn opinion soon. They assert that
he railroads are playing a waiting game ,
nd that this policy la being aided by some
if the ofllclal representatives of the city.
Some time ago Back introduced a resolution
* hlch provided for the appropriation of
5,000 to repair the Eleventh street viaduct ,
'his was with the understanding that the
xpenso was to be charged to the city and
hen taxed up against the railroads , according
o the provisions of the charter. The resolu-
lon was referrei to the committee on via
ducts and railroads , of which Bechel Is
A vigorous effort Is now being made to
iccuro a favorable report from the committee
n this resolution. H Is urged that the city
might Just as well have a law suit to collect
he money ns to spend nn Indefinite period
n court , while the viaduct Is allowed to re
main closed. Chairman Bechel Is quoted as
"ncllnlng to this opinion , but the legal de
partment of the city government Is strenu
ously opposed to such procedure.
Assistant City Attorney Cornish says thai
f this action was taken the entire work ol
the past year would bo lost. If the city
should repair the viaduct the railroads couk
jo Into court and show that the repairs de
manded had already been accomplished am
ho suit would be at once dismissed. Then
ho city would be compelled to begin all over
again , and there would be no telling how
nany years the railroads' ' couU delay the col-
ectlon of the money. Mr. Cornish received
: i letter from the clerk of the supreme court
the other day which stated that the man
damns case could not be reached before the
September term. Then there were aboul
forty criminal cases awaiting consideration ,
and It would bo October 1 before the city case
could be taken up.
"Now thut a decision Is In sight , " tald Mr
Cornish , * 'I believe It wouldi be iv ry foollst
for the city to do anything else than wait
So far the city has had all the advantage In
: ho fight In the courts , and by waiting a few
nonths longer we can have the question
settled for a'l ' time. I am confident that the
city will win , nnd then the council will be
nblo to proceed at once. "
