Plwention Over the Personnel of tha Ateo
oiation'i Legislative Committee.
OBJECTION TO FISCHER AS CHAIRMAN
Retert Imllk Refuses to Serve on
Committee Reranne lie Says It la
Hot Headed by Heiresent
tire Hnslaeas Maa.
Internal flssonslon which threatens to
Injure the power of the Retail Orocera' as
sociation has rome to light and there
aome evidence that the legislative commit
tee which han been selected to represent
the state organization at Lincoln before the
legislature will have more difficulty In
bringing about peace In tha ranks than It
will In Impressing the law makcra. The
dissension center around the appointment
of the committee, which was made by O. C.
Thompson, of Blair. The statement of
Robert Smith, one of the parties to the
difficulty, la an follows:
"When Mr. Thompson was In the city I
was called Into conference with him and
the matter of the appointment of the com
mittee was brought up. I told Mr. Thomp
son that It had been practically decided
that W. J. Hunter of this city should be
chairman and he told me that that was his
understanding. I said no more about It,
but told Mr. Thompson that I would serve
on the committee, but did not care to be Us
chairman, as I had all I could attend to as
chairman of the legislative committee of
tha Omaha association. A short time after
that I was called up by Harry Fischer, the
Secretary of the association, and was told
that the committee would consist of Mr.
Toungblud of Lincoln, Mr. Cook of Blair,
W. J. Hunter and Robert Smith, with Mr.
Fischer as chairman.
Protests Against Flecher.
"Then I immediately made up my mind
to decline a place on the committee. I
wrote to Mr. Thompson protesting against
the appointment of Harry Fischer as chair
man of the committee for four reasons, the
principal one being that he I a paid em
ploye of the organization and not a mem
ber, and that the rules of the organization
distinctly limit his powers, not giving him
any right to serve on any committee except
the executive committee, of which he Is
expressly made a member. I told him also
that Mr. Fischer had always made himself
too prominent. He has taken . credit for
work which has been done by members of
the association and baa tried to Impress
upon those with whom he came In contact
that be was the whole thing. He has posed
as the master of the members and has de
Toted more time to his private business
than be has to the work of the organization,
although he is paid to divide his time be
tween the state and the local associations.
"Mr. Thompson has been Imposed upon,
and when the matter Is brought to his at
tention he will see his mistake, and I hope
be will rectify it. It. he does not be will
have a hard time to get a working com
mittee before the legislature. The chair
man of that committee should be a man
engaged actively in business; one who can
apeak with authority of knowledge, and It
the man whom the majority of the local
association desired had been appointed we
would have had confidence In the ability of
the committee to get results."
LOOKS LIKE SEVENTEEN CENTS
C'taerk Herelre4 by fcalrmaa Ilofeiat
of Roaral at Coaaty Com
Chairman Hofeldt of the Board of County
Commissioners received yesterday a let
ter which he Intends to have framed and
hung, together with tbe sender, in the
chambers of the board at some convenient
date In the Immediate future. With the
letter came a check for 17 cents, which he
may have hung, also, as Indicating the Idea
of county finance which at least one man 1
In the county is cherishing. j
In 1866 the sender of the letter owed the
counfcy of Doug Ins 12 cents and 5 cents
taxes. Since then Interest on the former
his accrued In tbe sum of 78 cents and on
the latter In the sum of 45 cents. Thus the
original account stands at 17 cents, but the
interest account at $1 23. The economical
taxpayer sent a check for the 17 centa and
stated that he supposes he le now square
with the county. Chairman Hofeldt said
well, never mind what he said. It wasn't
for publication, anyhow.
