Republicans Hold Big Meeting at Armory
, , in City JIb.11.
1 ..
llepreseatatlv of Financial Concern
Mays Present Holders of Bonds
Will iiot Consent to the Re
, , newel Arrangement.
Another cnthuslastlo'raliy of republicans
vaa held at the troop armory last night.
iAa a week ago, this meeting was held under
the auspices of the Swedish-American
league No. 2. Juhn Nelson presided and in
troduced the speakert
One of the ft ret speakers was Frank
Koutsky, republican candidate for mayor.
After the hearty applause bad subsided
Candidate Koutsky spoke, in part, as fol
lows: "As you all know, I am not much of a
apeechmaker, but I do desire to say a few
things about municipal affairs. Since I have
been city treasurer more personal taxes have
been collected within the period of two
years than during any similar time In the
l story pf the city. The records of the
cilice show, a, expert accountant vouch,
that every cent collected by me as treas.
tiror has been, accounted for. Some people
aay that received money on dally balances
from the local banks. This is an absolute
misstatement. The banks do not now and
jiever have paid me a cent of interest on
daily balances. This practice was discon
tinued over two years a pro for the reason
that the city might have large sums on de
posit one day and the next the treasurer
might issue a call for warrants and draw
out all of the money on hand. I have done
this frequently In order to save the city in
terest which it pays on warrants."
The brief address of Mr. Koutsky was
Mell received and he was given an enthusi
astic reception as be left the rostrum.
Other candidates on the ticket followed
Mr. Koutsky and the meeting was consid
ered one of the best so far held during
the campaign. There was another rally at
Evans' hall, Twenty-eighth and R streets,
Where the candidates also spoke.

"If the .Johnston-Kelly-Miller combina
tion expects to deliver to C. Bevln Old
iHeld the recent lasue of $140,000 of renewal
bonds it is ' badly mistaken." This state
ment was made yesterday by a representa
tive of one of the big bond buying houses of
the east. Continuing, the representative
Bald: "In the first place, considering the
underhanded work which has been done
fand the . manner in which the ordinances
iswere passed no bond attorney would consent
to such a deal. Next is the reluctance of
holders of the present bonds to let go of
securities which they now hold and take a
lower rate of Interest. One concern in the
east, a big banking house, virtually controls
the original issue and It will not, to my
certain knowledge, ask its customers to
turn in the bonds they now hold for others
to be Issued at a lower rate of Interest,
Just because some politicians who are going
' out of office want them to. The original
feonds were Issued for twenty yeans straight
and the holders will endeavor to force the
elty to carry out Its agreement. At any rate
the renewal of this issue of bonds at this
time is illegal for the reason that the pres
ent city charter does not provide for an
option after the expiration of Ave years.
It la true that the old charter did, but the
city has been working under the new char
ter for a year now and it cannot go back
to the old charter because the combination
mentioned suddenly takes it Into Its head
to try and save the city money. It is a safe
wager that if the present city authorities
attempt to perform their part of the con.
traot with Mr. Oldfleld they will meet with
some stubborn opposition from the holders
'tef the present bonds."

serted that tbey had lived here for some
time, but could not give any specific dl
rectlons as to where they might be located
or where they were employed. A repub
lican said at the headquarters last night:
"Frequently democrats pursue these tactics
but this year the play is being made
stronger than ever. This Is because A. R.
Kelly and his man Mitchell are helping
out Loechner in bis troubles. It Is pre
sumed that if Koutsky should be elected
mayor too much light would be thrown
upon the recent administrates. At any
rate It is safe to say that the coloniza
tion movement will be watched closely.'
"pedal Council Meeting:.
There was a called meeting of the city
council held last night. It was for the
purpose of complying with the recent man
date of the supreme court in regard to
the Catherine Drlscoll claim. In order to
avoid the making of a special levy for the
purpose of liquidating the claim at once it
was decided to make a transfer of funds.
All of the money In the judgment fund
was used and a portion of that remaining
in me interest fund was transferred In
order to make up the total of $1,770. The
city clerk was Instructed to draw warrants
today for the amount, and so with this pay
ment the famous Drlscoll claim will doiibt
less come to an end.

Carrie Nation has come, has lectured and
has bad a night in Omaha, but a dry man
can still get a drink. The promoter of
parched tonsils arrived at the Webster
street depot at 6:35 last evening and In the
absence of other reception committee was
taken in charge by Albert Parmelee, who
Introduced himself as the only newspaper
man In Omaha who neither drinks, smokes,
chews or uses slang, and by Washington
O. Perclval, who chews his cigars, but
never smokes them. One took her satchel,
shaped like a traveling man's toilet grip,
and the other her dressing case, shaped
like a Kansas barroom after one of her
calls. They led her to Fred Meyer's car
rlage, Mr. Meyer having done as much as
any other hackman In the world toward
doing away with liquor, and he whisked her
away to the Her Grand amid the shouts of
about 300 persons, many of them women,
who had assembled at the depot to see her
She Didn't Bar the Bar.
At the hotel desk she did just what her
schedule calls for. Addressing Manager
Shafer, who was behind the desk, she said
"I want a room, but, young man, I see
you've got a bar in this tavern."
"Yes, a real good one. Front, show the
lady the bar," answered the hotel man
"Oh, mercy, I don't want to see It.
won't even stop here or any place else
where there is a bar."
But she did. She stopped there and she
ate there. Coming out of the cafe she faced
the cigar stand, presided over by Miss Hat
tie McAdsu, and raised her hands in bor
ror. Striking a pose suggestive of Nell
Burgess in "The County Fair," she ex
claimed: "Ob, to see one of my sex handling
those nasty things and tempting men to
do wrong and spend their money foolishly
It's terrible! "
A traveling man was just lighting up and
she turned on him. "You, sir, you are
wicked to do that and you know it. You
ought to be ashamed!"
Sweeping out to the elevator, sniffing as
she went, she was taken up to the parlor
and then posed most cheerfully for The
Bee's staff artist, retaining her shawl, of
which she said:
"Oh, I love It; I love It. I wouldn't have
my picture taken without It. It was my
only pillow In Jail."
She sent down word to have her baggage
taken to a room, remarking that she hated
to stay in a hotel where there was a bar,
but that there didn't seem any way around
Missed Many Faces.
She was sorry, she said, to see so many
vacant seats at the Boyd theater last night.
As a matter of fact, it was not a crowded
house, but such as were present lost not a
syllable of what was perhaps one of the
most remarkable discourses ever delivered
from the stage of that playhouse. It was
evident from the startoff that she was "fer
nlnst" the things that be. She shot ragged
holes In the social system, upset theology,
ripped politics up the back,, and . with a
well-primed . charge . of verbal . dynamite
blew up the government at Washington. .
At 8:30 the curtain ran up, disclosing a
table with a pitcher of light-brown Mis
souri river water on It, twe ohairs and a
piece of scenery representing a street with
two or three saloon signs over the sidewalk.
The scenery was probably an accident. A
moment later the famous hatchetter emerged
from the wings, followed by a female at
tendant. Both stepped to the table and
took a drlnk of the fluid In the pitcher;
then the attendant seated herself in one of
the chairs and Carrie strode to the foot
lights and began her lecture without a line
of preface.
She scolded those present because others
had stayed away, and then painted a word
picture of Omaha as a "hell-hole of In
iquity." She wore a severely plain brown suit
that "hiked up" in front and hung straight
behind. Fastened to her bosom was a small
gold hatchet made into a pin.
Samples of Her Shots.
Here are some of her epigrams:
I am a lilerallst; I Just take the bible
literally and don't try to spiritualise.
Oh, for radicals and fanatics! 1 wish we

We've got a lot of perjurers in office In
Kansas. From down they're a lot of

At the close of the harangue the speaker
announced that she had a lot of little

at 10 cents each; there were oly a tew left.

They Insist That Companies Have fto
Reason fnr Advancing!
Omahn Rates.
The Are Insurance agents of Omaha are
not satisfied with the action of the compan
ies they represent In advancing the rates In
Omaha on commercial risks outside of those
where the schedule rating has been applied.
There was a meeting of the Fire Under
writers association of the city yesterday
afternoon, at which the conditions were dis
cussed and it was decided that there was
nothing in the local situation to warrrant
any advance, to say nothing of the 25 per
cent which has been demanded by the
companies by letters to their several agents
in this territory.
It was decided that each agent should
write a letter to his companies protesting
against the advance in rates snd showing
that the conditions in Omaha are not such
as to demand any such action "Several of
the agents went so far as to say that they
would refuse to write policies at advanced
rates and some Intimated that certain com
panies not In the insurance union would
be found which would be willing to accept
risks at the present rates.
Once before some of the agents of the city
have succeeded In having companies rescind
an order for an advance In rates. A few
years ago some of the companies decided
to sdvance rates upon dwelling houses
snd Instructed their agent In this city to
put the Increase into effect. This agent
absolutely refused to consider the matter
and tendered his resignation rather than
exact the advanced rates. He explained
his reasons to the companies and in reply
the proposed rates were rescinded.

votes were counted It was found that over
200 had been cast, Mr. Crawford winning

Overrules Objection, as It Is Sight
and Mo Other Mags
The goddess of justice on the courthouse
dome bent far over snd hung by her toes
while she tried to peep into courtroom No.
2 last night in an effort to discover what
was going on. Her marble eyes discrrned a
professional barber poised in the middle of
the room with a lathered shaving brush In
his hand trying to show, by passes over an
imaginary fare, bow shaving is correctly
done and when the goddess saw this she
knew that the suit of John Studelska versus
the Moler Barber College was on. N
On the bench, austere and Imposing, sat
Charles Potter, ordinarily court sten
ographer for Judge Slabaugh, but between
times a justice of the peace In Dundee. The
jurors were all from the same suburb and
were business men, the list including John

Ths action was one of eighteen brought
against the college by former students to

The hearing, which occupied until 10:45,
and was then continued until 1:30 today,
may last through many night sessions, as
there are nearly twenty witnesses who may
be called. The first was L. V. Guy, a pro
fessional barber, whom the attorney for the
defense accused of having interested him
self on behalf of the barbers' union. His
testimony was an effort to show that It re
quires three years for a man to become a
competent barber, acquainted with face
photography, rotary lathering movements,
razor boning and the four standard styles of
hair cut, to-wlt., full cut, crown cut, halt
crown cut and pompadour. In the course
of the cross-examination he was furnished a
mug, brush and soap and asked to demon
strate the science of his trade.
"I'll have to have another mug," he re
marked. "Oh, I guess that Is big enough to put the
lather In," said counsel for the defense.
"But I want a mug to put the lather on,'
answered the witness, emphasizing the last
"The court will order Mr. Grebe, the
bailiff, to furnish another mug," commanded
Justice Potter.
"Not on your life," responded the alarmed
Louis. "My mug Is sore enough from my
own experimenting."
"Objection overruled. Witness will pro

I lost my appetite, became irritable, nervous, and unable to attend to my duties. My
doctors could do nothing for me. Fortunately for me a friend, on whom I called, had
a bottle of Warner's 8afe Cure in the house and gave me a dose to try it, I felt
the effects Immediately and I ordered a large bottle and took It faithfully. I kept

new life and strength had been given me. My old vigor and enthusiasm had re
turned, as did my appetite. Your Safe Cure Is Indeed a true friend to suffering
humanity and better than any other medicine I know of.
Yours gratefully, THOMAS 8. KKATH. ITesldent Detroit Travelers' Club.
