Mercer would bo elected , but even at such

can bo had. A republican made a proposi
tion to bet a hat with the secretory of the
fusion congressional commttteo that the lat-
ter'e candidate would bo defeated by 2,000
votes and the bet was accepted because
there was nothing else for the secretary to
do but accept or confess n lack of confidence
in his own campaign. Charles Fanning is

The popocratlo candidate for congress is
resorting to the tactics of the demagogue and
of the political boss In conducting his fight
for Dave Mercer's shoes. Although ho was
repudiated by the Jacksonlan club In a series
of resolutions which The Bco published and
which \Ncro passed by an almost unanimous
vote , he Is now writing letters to members of
that organization \\hlch Indicate that he Is
not entirely Ignorant of machine politics.
The following letter has been received by
a largo number of citizens of Douglas county
who at one time or another have been mem
bers of the Jacksonlan club. The friends of
the republican nomlneo will discover from
this communication what sort of efforts are
being put forth to prevent the popocrattc
nomlneo from experiencing the avalanchs In
Its full force. It goes without saying that
ho will bo defeated , but the aspiring young
gentleman hopes to cut down Mr. Mercer's
majority to a figure which will encourage
his ambition in some other campaign. It
will be observed that Mercer democrats ore
being driven Into line and that each Jack-
sonlan Is expected to turn out and use bis
personal Inllucnco among republicans ,
OMAHA. Oct. 7 Mv Dear Sir : I trust
that In making my campaign acalnst Mr.
Mercer I can depend upon Your active sup
port. Of necessity I am forced to relv upon
the advice and co-operation of those staunch
party men , like vourself. who are Interested
lu the success of the whole ticket.
Knowing you to be a "Jacksonlan" I think
I have a rlcht to expect mare of you than
your vote. There Is some work vou can
do with but llttlo Inconvenience to vour-
aolf and which will be most effective In
my behalf. The work I refer to Is this :
To aid In perfecting the party organization
In your precinct ; to look after the registra
tion of our party friends : and to see that
those who do rcelster. vote unon election
day. This work must be done bv these
living In the precincts , and I shall depend
upon you to take care of your precinct.
Another thine I would ask , and I deem It
the most effective of all kinds of colltlcal i
work. Is that vou make a canvass amonc I
your republican friends in my behalf , I i
do not expect you to clvo all vour time to ,
this , but would succest that If vou would ;
make a list of half n dozen or so of vour
republican friends , and when you happen to '
meet them during the campaign , solicit
their votes In mv behalf. vou i
would accomplish this work with but little i
loss of ttmo and with but little
Inconvenience to vourself. I cannot unre the
necessity of this work too stronelv. It is
the persistent personal canvass bv cartv
men that controls elections , and I doubt not
that K vou would make mich a canvass as
above Indicated , vou will win mo a vote or
two which would otherwise be cast realnHt

SELLING THE SCHOOL BONDS
Concession to the Silverites May Interfere
Somewhat in the End.
GOLD PAYMENTS WOULD HAVE HELPED

Uxuellcnt for Arlirniiko.
Whllo the members oi the Boaid of fMu-
cation do not anticipate that they will fiud
much difficulty In disposing of the school
bond ? . If they carry at the coming election ,
yet several of them arc inclined to think
that the recent change in the pioposltlon
which permits the payment of the bonds in
any old Kind of coin of the realm may op
erate against the board securing as big a
premium as It otherwise would have been
nblo to get. Regarding this matter one of
tbo members of the boa id said :
"I would have liked to have sefn the
proposition stand as it was originally formed ,
providing for payment In gold coin. We not
only would have been abls to secure A far
better premium , but it would also have been
a good thing for Omahn , as It would have
overthrown a somewhat prevalent belief
In the cast that we out here In
Nebraska transact business through tlw
medium of silver , beaver skins and other
such commodities. The contention made by
free Bllvcritcs , City Attorney Comiell In the
number , that the gold clause would have
rendered the bonds Illegal , Is proved ground
less by the fact that not only were the Kan
sas City school bonds , with gold clause at
tached , quickly snapped up , but they also
brought n , epfendld premium. This alone In
validates this objection grounded on the yel
low metal provision , aa bond buyers are ex
tremely zealous in their examination of the
legality of bonds and will not purchase a
batch upon which the slightest doubt la
"This same Inqulsltlvencfis of bond buyers
IH what will Interfere with the board's as
readily and advantageously disposing of the
bonds as It might otherwise have done.
When the bonds are placed on the market
they will bo accompanied with a statement
of the entire proceedings that lead to the
presentation of the proposition to the pee
ple. If this record was absolutely clear , if
there had not been the slightest hitch , they
would bo sold much easier than now , since
the proposition had to be amended , after con
siderable discussion. Yet , as I have said ,
the bonds will find a buyer. "

OVER THE ATTORNEY'S FEES
Oepfiiloit of the Attachment on the
StrvetM of All \ntloni liy Mont
gomery it Hull.
Acting under Instructions from the county
court Deputy Sheriff Strykcr has released
the attachment that he served the other day
on the Streets of All Nations us the result
of a suit for attorney's fees brought by C. S.
Montgomery. According to the Btatcmoii : of
Gaston Akoun , proprietor of the concession ,
the legal squabble with the Strw.s of Cairo
that occurred during the summer has been a
very prolific source of Income for the attor
neys Interested. In speaking of the suit Mr.
Akoun declared that It was an unqualified
outrage , as ho had already paid Mr. Mont
gomery $2,600 In cash for services that were
guaranteed pot to cost over ; iCuO. '
Mr. Akoun says that \\hen his contract
with the exposition management was drawn
up he submitted It to Mr. Montgoraeiv with
the statement that ho did not want to
sign It if it would Involve him
in a legal controversy. Mr. Montgomery
assured him that there could be no
tioublo and that ho would bo protected by
the exposition management. On that assurance -
anco ho Invested $16.000 In the concession
and soon after it was closed up by the In
junction Issued by Judge Scott.
"At that tlmo , " continued 'Mr. ' Akoun , " 1
went to Mr. Montgomery and told him that
as ho was familiar with my contract and as
1 was not acquainted with cny other law
yer , I wanted him to look after my Inter
ests. I Bald that I would not go into the
fight unless the entlro expense could bo
kept Inside of $1,000. If It was to cost more
than that H would bo more economical to' '
compromise. Mr. Montgomery told mo he j
would not charge mo over $1,000 , and that'
in all probability It would not coat mo over
$300. So I told him to go ahead. I paid
him $200 and $300 and $100 at various times
until I had paid htm $1,800 altogether. Then
he demanded $1,200 additional. I reminded
him that ho had promised to protect me
for $1,000 , but ho declared that It I knew |
what was good for mo I would pay
him SI 200 ind it once. I sked I
him If that would pay the entire
bill and he said that It would pay him for
his services to date and if there was any
more litigation a now arrangement must bo
made. I could not pay the amount in cash
at once , but I paid him $800 moro at various
times and then Monday ho called on me at
my office and told me I must pay him the
other $400 nt once or ho would close me up.
I told him that I would pay him If ho would
glvo mo a receipt for the entire $3,000. He
refused to do this , saying that n receipt for
$100 in full would answer just as well. I
then told him ho could not bluff me , as I
was not making any money anyway , and re
fused to pay him the $400. The next day
the deputy sheriff came out with a writ of
attachment and seized the theater , the con
tents of a number of the booths and the va
rious other features of the concession. I
etlll refused to pay unless Montgomery gave
me a receipt for the entlro $3,000 and told
him that if this outrage was continued I
would make the facts public to every one.
A day or two after the officer was instructed
by telephone to release the attachment and
he did so. "
Mr. Montgomery declares that his firm Is
In a position to prove that the amount de
manded us an attorney fee balance Is not in
OXCCKS of the amount stipulated to bo paid
for the firm's services. He said that the con
cession refused to pay the balance , and
therefore an attachment was Issued and
served. No levy , however , has been made ,
according to Mr. Montgomery , because dur
ing the two days that the deputy of tha
court has been hanging about the streets
ho has been unable to find anything of suf
ficient value to satisfy the attachment. Ev
erything has been transferred.
