The republican county cantral commit
tee yesterday, by a close vote, surrendered
to the congressional committee Its rights
and powers to conduct the forthcoming
primary election at which delegates to ths
county and congressional conventions are
to be chosen. Furthermore the commit
tee resolved to require republlcsn voters.
Including those regularly registered as re
publicans, to make oath that they voted
for the republican electoral ticket at the
last presidential election before they can
vote at the primary in oase they are chal
lenged. After the county committee adjourned
the congressional committee met at the
office of Mr. Mercer'a campaign manager,
called the congressional convention for the
forenoon of Saturday, September SO, de
cided te admit the delegates already se
lected by the eounty conventions ot Wssh
lngton and Sarpy, denied to Douglas county
the right to select Its delegation In the same
way, and fixed an apportionment giving ths
Omaha wards, where Mercer le weakest,
only seven delegstes eacn, the South
Omaha wards three delegate each and the
county precincts, where Mercer is supposed
to be etrongest, three delegstes each. Can
didates Cornish and Breen were called la
to address the congressional committee be
fore it acted, but their argument and pleas
for fair play were answered by Mr. Black
burn telling them that the action of the
committee had been arbitrarily decided
upon tn advance.
Coaaty Committee Proceeelaae.
The' county committee met at Washing
ton hall at I:tO In the afternoon, with
Chairman Goes . presiding and Ofty-nlns
members present or represented by proxy.
As soon as order had been called the chair
man recognised W. F. Gurley, as proxy
for Harry Morrill ot the Fourth ward, who
Introduced the following resolution:
Reeolved, That the chairman of this
committee be authorised end directed to

That the apportionment of delegatee be

for each ward In the city of South Omaha.
That for the purpose of this primary
election the boundaries of the voting dis

South Omaha the same aa the boundaries)
of the various wards respectively; for the
country precincts, the same as the bounda

Coaaell Call for Pair Play.
W. J. Connell objected to that Bart ef
the resolution which sought to give Into
tne nana or a committee known to be an
tagonistic to three of the four congres
sional candidates the power to name the
Judges aad clerks and select the polling
pieces tor us primaries. He questioned
the right ot the committee, as representa
tive of the republicans of the county, thue
to surrender its prerogative, and armed
that the resolution wss drawa for the pur
pose of giving one of the congressional
candidates an unfair and undeserved ad
vantage over the other three.
Mr. Gurley made a long speech.- In which
he declared that the purpose of the reso
lution wss to secure a vote on the con
gressional proposition sepsrately from the
vote on candidates for county offices. Hs
avowed that the congressional committee,
of which he is a member, was disposed to
treat all candidates for ths congressional
nomination fairly, but failed to exclala
why he desired the Judges and clerks and
polling placss for the primaries to b aa.
lected by a committee controlled abso
lutely by Mr. Mercer.
Charles Unltt. R. W. Breckenrldse. A. H.
Burnett and O. C Thompaoa spoke In fa
vor of the resolution, and Joseph Koutsky
and H. C. Murphy of South Omaha and
Theodore Oleen, members of the commit
tee, aad E. J. Cornish and John P. Breen,
candidates for congress, argued In opposl.

Mr. Cornish said U part:
"I am willing to let the congressional
commutes make the apportionment of con
gresilonal delegatee for this county and te
have the county committee endorse such an
apportionment if it is any thing like a fair
ens. I am willing t have delegstes to ths
eeuaty and congressional convsntlons voted
for separately at th primaries, so as hot
to complicate the congressional contest with
that between candidates for county offices.
But I want ths selection of the Judges and
clerks aad the polling places for the prt
msrlee to be determined by the eounty com
mittee, wHose members were chosen without
any reference to their choice for congress
man, lnstsad ot by ths congressional com
mittee, all of whom are for Mercer, aad a
special committee te be appointed by Chair,
man Goes, who haa expreaasd himself for
Mercer. Ths resolution presented by Mr.
Gurley establishes a precedent that destroys
the county as a political unit. Under such a
precedent the ststs commutes could make
ons apportionment of delegates to a stats
ccaventloa for all the counties In the stats
excepting Douglas county, and then maks a
different apportionment for this county,
thereby destroying all opportunity for united
sctloa by ths republican party."
The first vote en the question of surrend
ering to ths congresslonsl committee was
Uksn ea a substitute motion made by Mr.
Connsll te have the meeting proceed with
the formulation of a call tor the primaries,
during whloh proceeding . the committee

after brief debate:

Mr. Oonnell was then recognised.. He
said that he had prepared a resolution, the

Mr. Cornish was called upon and took up
the matter of apportionment between the

or apportionment was used In Omaha as In
the remainder of Douglas county and the
apportionment based upon the vote cast for
Mr. Mercer at the last election, the basis
being one delegate for each 100 votes cast
ror tne candidate, no precinct would have
more than one delegate, and that It would
not be fair to change the basis, but hs
was willing to concede two to each pre
cinct outside of the city. He asked D. H.

rrom the country, If that was not fair.
"It Is fair epough," replied the commlt-

The congressional committee did not con
vene until after the adjournment of the
county committee. Th committee ac
cepted the resignation ot J. L. Carson as a
member and his successor was appointed
by Drid H. Mercer selecting George C.
Thompson. A messenger wss sent out
to bring In the candidates tor nomination
and reported Mr. Pratt out of the city.
Mr. Breen being called upon to express
his idea of what the committee should do,
said that as a lawyer he was of the opinion
that the committee could do no more than
fix the time and place for holding the con
vention and determine the number of dele
gates from each county composing the
district; that the selection of delegates by
Washington and Sarpy counties was Ir
regular and In the case of thu former

In response to a question by Mr. Cornish,

and bunting, and for the greater part of

Those Inevitable Mattering.
Acting Mayor Freeman introduced Presi
dent Roosevelt, who spoke aa follows:
We are passing throush a nerlod of rrent
material prosperity and such a period is as
sure as adversity itsen to nrlng mutter
tnss of dlacontent. At a time when mt
tr.en prosper somewhat It always happen
in a tew men prosper greatly, and It Is
as trus now as it was when the tower ot
HI loam fell upon all who were under It,
that rood fortune does not omn nnlv tn th.
Just, nor bad fortune only to the unjust.
When the weather la good for crops It hi
also good for weeds. Moreover, not only
do the wicked flourish when the times
such that most men flourish, but what Is
worse, ths spirit of envy and Jealousy and
hatred springs up In the breasts of those
who, though they may be doing fairly well
themaelves, yet see others, who are no
more ueverving, aoing iar Better.
Wis Laws Fearlessly Eaferee.
Wise lews and fearless and Upright ad
ministration of the laws can glvs the op
portunity for such prosperity as that we
see shout us. But this is all that they can
do. When the conditions havs been cre
ated which make prosperity possible, then
each Individual man must achieve It for
himself, by his own thrift. Intelligence,
energy, industry and resolute purpose. If
when people wax fat they kick, aa they
have been prone to do since the days of
Jeshurun, they will speedily destroy their
If they go Into wild speculation and lose
their hesds, they hsve lost that which no
legislation pan supply, and the business
world wllj suffer in consequence. If In a
spirit of sullen envy they insist upon pull
lng down those who have profited most by
the year of fatness, they will bury them
selves In the crtih of the common disaster.
It la difficult to maks our material condition
better by the best law, but It Is easy
erough by bad laws to throw ths whols
nation Into an abyss of misery.
Now the upshoot of all this Is that It Is
particularly incumbent upon ua. In a time
0( auch material well being, both col
lectively as a nation and Individually, each
on his own account, to show that we poa
sc-ss the qualities of prudence, self-knowl
edge and self-rvstralnt. In our government
ws need above all things stability, flxlty of
conomlo policy, while remembering that
thla ttxity must not be fosslllsation that
there must not be Inability to snap our
courss anew to meet the shirting needs of
the people as these needs arise. There are
real and great evils In our social and eco
nomic life, and these evils atand ojt with
ugly baldness during good times, for ths
wicked who prosper sre never a pleasant
Valve ef Camhlaatlea.
There Is every need ofstrlvlig In sll
possible Wsys. Individually snd collectively,
by combinations among ourselves In private
life and through th recognised organs of
government, for the cutting out of these
svlla. Only let us be sure that we do not
use the knife with an Ignorant seal which
would make It more dangerous to th pa
tient than to the disease.
On of the dangers of th tremendous
Industrial growth of the last generation has
been th veiy great Increase In large pri
vate, and especially In large corporate for
tunes. W maks liks this or not, lust ss ws
pleaaa, but It U a (act, liiVol tliclraa, and aa
far as we can aee It Is an inevitable re
sult of th working of various causes,
prominent among wmcn Haa been the im
mense Importance steam and electricity
have assumed la modvrn Ufa. Urban popu

In great masses It Ine-rttaWy results thst
they must work far more largely by means
or combinations among themselves than
when they live Isolated from one another.
Now, I suppose that most or us prefer en
many accounts the old conditions of Ufa,
under which the avers man lived more
to himself and by himself, when th aver
age community was more self-dependent,
snd where, even though the standard of
comfort was lower on the average, yet
mere was ess oi tne timing inequality
In worldly conditions which ws now see In
our great cltlee.
U Is not true that the poor hsve grown
poorer, but some of the rich have grown
so very much richer that where multitudes
or men sre nerned tosether In a limited
space the contrast strike the onlooker as
more violent tnan formerly. On the whole,
our people earn more and live better than
ever before, and the progress of whloh we
are ao proud could not have taken place
had It not been for the great upbuilding

cial snu manufacturing cities.
Both Good aad Rvll.
But together with the good there has
com a measure oi evil. Lrfie Is not s.i
simple SS it was. and surelv both for the
individual snd the community ths simple
life Is normally the healthy life. There is
not in tne citiea tne same sense ot common
underlying brotherhood which there Is still
in country localities, and the lines ot social
cleavage are far more clearly marked.
For some 'of the evils which have at
tended upon the changed conditions we
can at present see no complete remedy.
For others, the remedy must corns by
action among themselves In the private
capacity, whether merely aa Individuals or
by combination, one with snother. For yet
omers some otner remedy csn be round in
legislative and executive sctlon, national,
slate or municipal. Much of the complaint
sgalnst combinations Is entirely unwar
ranted. Under present conditions It la ss
necessary to havs corporations In ths busi
