Tha trouble that h been brewing at th
Couth Gin ah postofflc for torn Mm
reached a rlimst yesterday, when Post
master fetter requested Harvey D. Mosely,
deputy postmester, to resign. Mosely de
clined to accede to the request at the time
and lent algbt wa etlll at hit desk handing
ut money order, etc
The indifference on the part of Motel?
rather tiled Etter and he went and told
Jilt trouble to . K.. Bruce, one of the
Jtnltor of the building. . Bruce euggetted
Ithat he hold off a while, a Moaely la a
(launch aupporter of ' Mercer, hut Etter
would not hear of anything of tb aort and
'inflated on an immediate ,rr slgtiatlon.
When the demand for a ','tlop payment"
rder came Mostly went out and conferred
with hit friends, and found that for tome
, reason Governor Savage , and Congressman
Mercer had taken a dielike to him and that
Savage wanted tb appointing of a deputy
,for the postofflce la South Omaha In ac
cordance with the view euggetted by Mer-
'. , ;,- r- . :
i In speaking of tha matter Moaely aald:
x-Pn.frr, Vtl.r a In nfflxa

'at once. I Inferred from hi tone that, he
,waa angry, but I did not reply to him a

Cerent. He misunderstand me. I hare al
Stay been and am ttlll a. Mercer man, but
It appear that he doe not brieve m and
o I wa requeeted to retlgn. 80 far I have
not tent In my resignation. Just when I
wvlll remains to be seen."
I During the afternoon reporter for The
See called upon J Postmaster Etter at hi
yjfBce In the government building at Twen
ty-fourth and M street.. The pottmatter
(divided hi attention between a book agent
'and tha reporter, but he managed to ay he
ihad "suggested" to Moaely that he had
better resign a deputy postmaster. When
'asked a to whether he had rescinded the
requeit aa per the report of the Janitor,
Mr. Etter commenced to talk about the
recent senatorial fight.' . . i
Then came the flat-footed question, "Why
Old you ask Moaely to resign?" To tblt Cap,
tain Etter responded that Moaely I a can.
Bidet for the poatofflce and he thought, that
by disposing of hi service he would fur
ther the Interests- of the Mercer combine
and would stand a better . shew of being
reappointed te tha tame position for an
other four yean.
Moely ys: , "Captain Etter called on
n for my resignation, but I declined to
hand It In. v' Then he went to one of the
janitor and told him that ha did not mean
It It seems that the trouble Is that I am
a candidate for the postofftce and Mr. Etter
take this meant of putting m out of the
race. 1 , traaersiana inl. Gvtvrscr
and Mercer want to put a man In my place
who win do their bidding. While I hava
alway been a Mercer man, this action on
the part of Morcer and Savage rather rile
see and there Is no telling where the how
U1 end. ' My friend came to tn and
urged me to enter the Hit for pottmatter,
and being far, mora familiar with the work

Femaieai Hospital Bnllalaax.
There , I a project on foot to secure a
permanent building for the South Omaha
' Hospital association, and Mayor Koutsky
la behind it. At a conference held a day
or two ago the mayor suggested that he
talght be Induced ' to erect a building for
- hospital purpoaes on his property at
Twenty-fourth and P street. The only
consideration Is a long time lease.
Mrs. Talbot, secretary of the hospital
association, said to a reporter for The Be
that a number of the member bad con
sulted with Mayor Koutsky and that they
left with the Impression that he would
endeavor ti eecure the money" tor th erec
tion of hospital building. When the
mayor wa seen about the natter he said
that h wa perfectly willing to go ahead
and assist In tha securing of funds for C
erection, of a suitable building, providing
some arrangement could be made for the
payment of tha rent for a term of years.
What tha hospital people want U a twelve
room building, with aa operating room in
1 addition and a beater tor water to be run
all the time. Jutt now the city allows tha
hoepltal association $25 a month, but the
association wants the , city to stand lor
th entire rent of the proposed new build
Ing. This matter will have to be referred
to the finance committee before It can be
acted upon. ; 1 - .
' Member of the hospital, attoclatlon as
tert that the building now occupied I not
what It should , b, and that' there 1
scarcity of hot water when needed by the
nurse, and that stoves hava to be. used
la winter. With the proposed building, all
of the heating appliances. Including the
hot water, would be tn the Cellar and there
would be no carrying of coal or th empty
ing of aahes. Aa effort la to be made to
Indue the city authorities to appropriate
enough money each month to pay th rent
' of tha oroDosed hospital In case It I
rected. - , . ' j

Attorney Connell, after the conference,
and the reduced captains have no right
to question any act It may perform on th
ground that it 1 not a legally constituted
board. Th real question Is: Hsa a board
that 1 both de jure and d taoto the right
to reduce aa offloer.to ii,o ranks, thereby
Indirectly . causing hi removal, without
charges being preferred T No member of
either the police or fire department can be
removed ' Without charge being preferred
and a hearing on the charge. Th only
exception to thi rule arises when ther la
a necessity tor tha reduction of th force
to keep th expenditures of the depart
ment within th fund allowed.
"It la my opinion that the board had no
right to reduce to the ranka Captain Her
ana Hay and immediately afterward an
point in their place Mostyn and Hhxe.
Thi in effect is a removal of old officers.
If it can ba dona today, then Chief Dona
hue and Chief Salter can be reduced to th
rank next week. Thi I manifestly against
th spirit and purpose of th law.
.- "An unauthorised removal in tb nature
of those Just made 1 not only detrimental
to the departments, but la financial! tn.
jurtous to the city. The result will be that
Ilsr and Hay will claim talarle a cap
tain, and . If In the meantime salaries
ahould be paid to Mostyn and Hate the city
win d paying four salaries for the serv
ice of but two officer." '
Mr. Connell said b had not a yet begun
work on the petition and brief In quo war
ranto to test th legal status of the new
board, as he baa been -busy trying other
cases In th district court, but Ae , expect?
to set at it by the. flrat of next weeav j 1
