The underlying principle In the brief of
McCoy & Olmsted attacking the law Is that
every voter Is possessed of an Individual
sovereignty which gives him the right to say
who shrill occilpy the various offices In the
municipality ttithln which ha lives. He shall
not only have the right to vote for the offi
cers lo manage the affairs of the state , but
nlto In congressional districts , judicial dis
tricts , counties , cities , nchool districts and
townships. Tbe , legislature may say that
certain ofllccrs shall bo , provided for , but It
Is for , , tlio , rioter nlonojto decide who shall

right Is/guaranteed tj the voter by the con

When the announcement.was made at
police headquarters at noon' that the supreme
court had denied the outfawcd flro.and po
lice'board a rfchearlng of Hq case It' cast a
pall of gloom over those members of the
department who had been enemies of the
legitimate board , The report ! fell the heavi
est , on tbo. heads of the department , as they ,
with but , few exceptions , were creations of
the outlawed board. ,
Chief Gallagher1 , was the only ono who
wou.jdj cxpreja himselffreely , , on thp subject.
He'safd , when as'kcd forxan expression oa
the matter : "As the supremo-eovjrt has

thcro Is nothjnff 'left ' forlus to do but sub

"I , want to say thts , , however , that dcsplto
all the adverse criticism that bas been
heaped on the police , the city Is freer
from crime than U ever has been In Its
hlstbry : Under the present board nnd police
administration crime has been minimized
Thcro Is less crime , and I have statistics to
prjjvo Jt , In Omaha than In any other city
of Its stzo In the country. Even though wo
haj'o , n great exposition within our gates
thcro Is less crlmo 4han there was ten years
ago. I believe , In view of recent happen
ings , that the police department will bo
forted Into partisan politics and I consider
that when't.hls Is brought about It wll
be1 the , greatest calamity that ever befcl the
' 'I .don't think politics ought to meddle
with tbo police department , as It destroys
the efficiency of the force. Regardless of
what'has been said to the contrary , I never

public officer , whlfh did not b'cgln In the

Police Captain Slgwart would not ex
press himself on the matter and Chief of
DoVttlyoB McCrath was equally as non-

discuss' the action of tho' supreme court

Three SiiftlalnliiK.InlluonceN ' of All
Th nt U Si'iuiiil/und I'll re
In ClVlUzntlon.
The home , the schoolud she church , thro , ,
sustaining influences back of all .that Is
bound and pure In civilization , were.spoken
of by Dr. Leo M. Franklin last night In the
weekly lecture at Temple Israel. U was
shown that the prosperity of nations In
creased ns rovercnco was paid to those Insti
tutions and that'national decay followed
their disregard. Dr. Franklin wade an
earnest and convincing arraignment of the
spirit of materialism , which sets at naught
those Influences ns an empty sentiment.
"There are free Institutions upon which
the stability of human sqclcty is absolutely
dependent , " he said , "and whose removal
would mean a long , backward step toward
heathenism. Indeed , BO 'necessary are they
to the permanence of human Institutions
that without them the very headwaters of
the world's progress would bo checked. The
three Institutions which form , as it were ,
the structure of society are the home , the
bchool and the church and the growth of the
civilizing forces of tnanklnd Is exactly com
mensurate with these factors.1 'Their vital
Importance Is apparent even In the narrow
scope which wo , ns"lhdviduals , { , have of the
whole social fabric , Imagine the unutter
able destitution ! our own lives If the doors
of home and church Iwcr'o- closed to us and If
the school denied our children entrance. For
every homo tlo broken , for every empty
school or church , a work" house , nn asylum ,
a prison would needs bo opened. Why do
you think Franco , a government once'fore
most among the nations , Is crumbling to
decay ? Not because ot political 'Intrigue
or of military scandal only , but beyond and
behind all this , because of a deterioration
In Its Inner life that Is ruining the nation
as It deserves when Its homes have losl
their purity and sanctity. If we como Hearer
home It Is clear that the awful crimes of
negroes In the south can be traced to an
enforced .Ignorance In their denial of pub
lic school privileges' ; What- has brought
Spain so low that It is n Jest arid a byword
of the nations ? Not a. Weakness Of her navy
or cowardice of her ? oldlery , for the Span-
lards met their foe llko men. Deeper than
any material defense lay the cause of her
helplessness , her Inherent unrighteousness.
It Is true that there has been an established
church In Spain for generations , but from
It has gene forth bigotry , hatred and Inhu
manity. It has been to all Intents no cluirch
, and the- national llfo has felt the restraint
of no religious Influence.
"It Is not necessary to dwell upon the Im
portance ofthe home- and the school to
Americans who prldo themselves upon the
purity of the one and the excellence of the
other. They feel that it Is hopeless for any
community lo attempt to maintain itself un
aided by such Influences nnd that political
Issues or other material matters nro of no
account besldo them. But often the third
factor , the church , Is not so generally ap
preciated as a vital part of the scheme. It
Is not clearly felt that the 'three elements
are Interdependent , that Incompetency In one
may destroy the effect of the others. The
Influence of the homo and the school would
bo fruitless wlthouit that of the church ,
which adds the spiritual to the mental and
reconciles itho heart nnd the Intellect. The
chu ch should take Its place without question
as the safeguard of the home and the co-
laborer wl'th ' the school. Without one It
should bo seen that the others are Impotent
and unavailing , for wherever the Influence of
the home and school Is preserved there Is
found equally a reverence for the church ,
"Tho Jews have always made these factors 1
a part of their national life. Their rabbi
has been both their teacher nnd tlielr priest
and the nation has always been as ambi
tious for knowledge as U has bcen , observ
ant and sincere in religion. None the less 1
have they sustained the sanctity of their
homo llfo and thcso things have reflected
themselves In thulr Influence among men. "
Sunday night the "Eve of the Atonement"
will bo observed by memorial services nt the '
temple. They will bo commemorative 1
throughout and the address wljl bo upon 1
"Memorial Thoughts. " On Monday thp fes-
tjvat of the Atonement will be carried out
by a service lasting through the day. The 1
ceremonials Incident to the season will bo )
observed and there will bo a lecture by Dr. .
Franklin upon "Casting the First Stone. " '
The subject of the evening address will be >
"After Confession , What ? " The music at
the .temple will ba unusually good during the

SAN FRANCISCO , Sept. 23. The Evening
Post pVlnts an article oday In which It
makes knoun the plans of the Germans ) n
regard to the disposition of the Philippines.
U will bo remembcied that some time ago
the Post published an exclusive article re
garding the seizure of the LadronS falanda
by the United States.
The details of the plot on the part of thp
government arc furnished by n high author
ity In the opinion of the government otn-
clnlg of this country and Germany. The snme
man now states that Germany Is en
deavoring to embitter the followers of
Agulnaldo against the Americans and tbnt
he has.odlcers In their ranks secretly drillIng -
Ing them. The man In question states
that this has been going on for years and
pi lor to the Interference of the United States
In the Philippine affairs utmost everv Ger
man vessel that landed' there carried ono
or more olllers In disguise and stacks of
arms and ammunition for the Insurgents.
ThePost's Informant has Just received a
letter from an authoritative source In Ham
burg , giving the details of'Germany's futilrn
plan In regard to these Islands. The plan
Is ns follows :
Germany will send numerous trading ves
sels to the Islands and will arm 150.000
Filipinos , besides furnishing Krupp guns
and artillery for field use. The Islanders
are to bo drilled by German ofllccrs and by
February Scnor Agulnaldo will be prepared
to make an onslaught on the American
forces. To aid this plot the letter says
Germany Is trying to Induce China to pur
chase a > large number of big war vessels ,
ostensibly to strengthen her navy , but re
ally to be held for transfer to Germany
should complications arise.
The Get man agents who have made n re
port to their government say It will bo
Impossible for the United States to land
moro than 50,000 men In the Islands before -
fore Aculnnldo Is ready to make his coup.
The German correspondent says tha ( Amer
ica's only hope Is to disarm the Insurgents.
The Post regards the recent ordering of j '
additional troops to Manila , after their mus
tering out had been ordered , as an Indica
tion that the United States has been In
formed of Germany's attempt to frustrate
American acquisition of the Islands.
Uctoi't ( hi * I'olnoii In Time.
MANILA , Philippine Islands- Sept , 23 , A
careful Investigation of the attemptto poi
son Agulnaldo' shows that the cookIs not
dead as reported and that no trJWta ? hrfS ,
Implicated , as alleged by the fn'jj'u'rgeats.
Paterno , the president of the Philippine
assembly , exaggerated the facts In the case.
Several Spanish casedores were allowed"
remain nt liberty at Malolos and two of
them were employed In Agulnaldo's house
hold. One of these put a packet-of oxalate -
ate of potash powder Into the soup , but the
cook detected it Immediately and nobody
was injured. A packet was also folind. In
the casederoa' pocket. There Is no reason
to believe that ho had any accompllcK-'Tho
Filipinos and the Filipino government pro
posed to send a long dispatch to President
McKlnley , protesting against certain al
leged Spanish mlsstatcmcnts as being calcu
lated to "undermine the friendship between
the Filipinos and the Americans. " but in
stead-of sodoing , , they simply1scnt'a.lls -
jatch tendering to the American go-vprfi-
ment and the American people through
President McKlnley an expression of "high
esteem and unity of sentiment towards the
champions and protectors of oppressed pee
ples. "
On Thursday the Filipinos Intend to have
a great festival at Malolos In celebration
of their Independence. The Filipino Na
tional association has decided to request
the Americans , first , to recognize the In
dependence of the Islands ; second , to estab
lish a protectorate over their external af
fairs and to Induce the powers to recognize
their Independence ; third , to appoint a joint
commission ot Americans and Filipinos for
the arrangement of details to "reciprocate
the Americans' services. "

WASHINGTON. Sept. 23. It Is probable
that Agonclllo and Lopez , the representa-
I lives of Agulnaldo who arrived nt San Fran
cisco yesterday , will call at the White House
on their way through Washington td Paris.
i They will be admitted to see President Me-
Klnley , but only ns Individuals- not as
.representatives of any goveri acnt. . It would
be plainly impolitic and Inconsistent for. the
president at this date and pending the con
clusion of the pqace conferenceatParis
to allow U to be understood , by according
: i formal reception to the delegates , that1 he
bad thereby recognized the Philippine gov
ernment as an Independent nationality. H's
attitude toward the Filipinos uould bo 61m-
liar to that assumed by him toward the
As the Filipinos have repeatedly sought
to convey the Impression that the United
States representatives In Manila have at
some time during the war recognized -Agul-
naldo as an Independent ally and entered
Into formal co-operation with him , It may
bo stated that the government at Washlng-
ton Is unaware that any such thing has 1
happened. Admiral Dewcy , who was In
command of all tho.UpHed States forces
during the most' critical period , expressly
cabled the secretary of- the navy that ho
had entered Into no formal agreement with
Agulnaldo. As for Consul General Wlldman ,
any understand he may have assumed with
Agulnaldo must have been upon his own ,
personal and Individual responsibility and
would bo without foimal standing ,
Inasmuch as ho had not the express author-
Izatlon frpm the State department absolutely
required to negotiate In such cases. The
peace commissioners arc , free to "deal with
the Philippine 'problem at Paris absolutely
without , restriction beyond that which
might be supposed to arise from a sense of
moral obligation to avoid , committing
the Filipinos' again into the hands of their
late rulers.

The explosion Is said to have been caused
by the loosening of a large block of coal
which opened a pocket of gas. Immediately
following the explosion of gas there was a '
second explosion of flro damp.
Thcro wcro seventy men nt work In the
mlno at the time of the disaster and at
flrst It eeemcd an Impossibility for any of
the fifty-four men In mines Nos. 9 and 10 ,
where the explosion occurred , to escape.
Four men , Jacobs , Davis , Whesca nnd Wal
ker , who were near the entrance , managed
to crawl out and the others , with the ex
ception of those caught by falling coal ,
escaped by traversing a mile and a half of
underground passage , coming out nt the en
trance near Lynn station. This' point Is
four miles from the opening" of the mine ,
on the Monongnhela river.
j Slo tly a.tor he re-o ; t was circulated that
an exploslo.n had taken place at the Em
pire mlno and that many miners were en
tombed , Water street , a narrow thorough
fare leading to It , was crowded with men ,
women and children , nil moving nt break
neck saecd towards the mines. When the
mlno was reached wilting hands at once
went to-1 work. There wag no waiting.
Hferj > bodysedmed to vnnt to co Into the
mlhoi It was by sh'cer' force that these
In charge at tlio entrance kept tlio crowd
oirt. There was a sufficient force Inside to
do rescue work when a' weary and painful
wait of hours took place.
It was several hours later that the tink
ling of the electric boll In the engine house
announced that a train pf coal cars rwas
coming from within. The scene of the dis
aster Is more than a mlle from the en
trance. The ci\rs are taken In and out by
means of heavy bales , wrapped and un
wrapped by two largo spools. It took about
ten minutes for the first load to reach the
outside world. While the coble was wind
ing there was a suspense that bordered on
the awful.
When the little train of cars emcrced a
ahuddor. was yjslblo In the crowd. First
there came tweycars loaded with coal. Then
three cars , In each of which there were two
bodies. In one were two brothers , side by
side , John and Salem Halston. In the others
were Robert Davidson and John Bennett ,
William Prltchard and John Cartwrlght.
James Hill was In the last car.
During the cntlro afternoon there was a
doaperato wait. It was announced that
many men had come out of the mlno from
an abandoned entry nearly three 'miles dis
tant. This allayed the fears of many and
as fast as the men wore accounted for to
their friends and families rejoicings and
congratulations followed.
At 9 o'clock the last of the explorers from
the mlno came out and announced that
there was nothing living or dead behind In
the mine , leaving the llet of fatalities as
given. Flro Boss Henry Farrar and Pit
Boss James Broderlck were In the party
that made the last search of the mlno to
night. When questioned as to the cause
of thp disaster they would.not talk , merely
saying they had nothing to say for publi
cation. Much Interest Is manifested In the
cause of the explosion and Coroner Smith ,
who. Arrived from Uulontown tonight , Bays
a searching Investigation will bo made at

It is not in me
chanics alone that
the world is making rapid progress. Not
many years ago all physicians pronounced
consumption an incurable disease. To day
a large proportion of people recognize that
it is a distinctly curable disease. Doctor
Picrce's Golden Medical Discovery cures
§ 3 per cent , of all cases of consumption.
It has stood the test for thirty years. Thou
sands of people who were given up by their
doctors , and had lost all hope owe their
lives to this marvelous remedy. It acts j
directly on the lungs , driving but all im
purities and disease germs. It restores the
appetite , corrects all disorders of the diges
tion , strengthens the weak stomach , makes
the assimilation of the life-giving elements
of the food perfect , invigorates the liver ,
purifies the blood and tones the nerves. It
is the great blood-maker and flesh-builder.
It does not make flabby flesh like cod liver
oil , but the firm , muscular tissue of abso
lute health. An honest dealer will not
offer you an inferior substitute for the sake
of a little added profit.
Miss Mary Whitman , of Kast Dickinson ,
Prankllu Co. , N. Y. , writes : " I'or nearly ten
months I liaxe had a bad cough , and instead of
getting better , It grew worse. I wa said to have
consumption. I tried Dr. Hcrcejs Golden Med
ical Discovery , and when the second bottle was
empty I had no cough and , was cured. "
