Weatberar's Cnmnaia-n Biography.
Ia each of the municipal campaigns since
1896 biographical sketches of Mr. Westberg
have appeared in the public prints. These
sketches tell us that tha subject was
born In Sweden In 1861, came
to America In 1867. to Nebraska
In 1874 and to Omaha In 1879. All
of the campaign biographies cover the
period from 1885 to 1892 by stating that
westberg wss a member of the firm of
August Benson Co., but a reference
to the Omaha city directories for 1890 and
1891 shows that Mr. Westberg, In prepar
ing bis campaign sketches, must have
stretched the Benson engagement aome.
tor no auch firm was then In exiatencs.
Mr. Benson had by that time gone out of
the Ice business and Into the resl estate
trade. The directories show that West-
berg was no longer a partner of Mr. Ben
son, but was secretary snd treasurer of tho
Oate City Ice company, of which Benjamin
Melqulat was president and Peter D. Matt-
son was vice president. The Bee wss there
fore tempted to Investigate first that part
of Mr. Weatberg's record which he had
slighted In his campaign sketches.
It was impossible to learn anything per
taining to Westberg's retirement from the
Benson firm, for Mr. Benson died some
years ago. Mr. Melqulat and Mr. Mattson.
the partners of Westberg In the Oate City
Ice company, are still living In Omaha and
both were found willing to talk of their
business relations with Westberg.
Story of One Partner.
Mr. Melqulat Is the proprietor of the
Nebraska Stone company at Fifth and Jones
streets and lives at 152S South Twenty
seventh street. To a Bee reporter he
"I was not an activs partner ia the Gats
City Ice company, but I was one of the
three stockholders and president, while Mr.
Westberg owned a slight majority of ths
stock and had control of the business as
secretary and treasurer of the company.
When I went into the Ice compsny I had a
prosperous stone buclness and owned from
35,000 to $40,000 of good property, and
when I came out of It I had nothing. In
the winter the company would borrow
money from the bank to put up loe. In
the summer the Ice would be sold and In
the fall. Instead of having the proceeds
of the salea to pay the notes at the bank
the company would have nothing. I don't
know what became of the .money, but I
suppose a part of It was apent for run
ning expenses and the remainder went to
Mr. Westberg. At any rate Mr. Westberg,
as manager of the business, waa unable
lo taks ears of the company's obligations.
The n6tes had been algned by the com
pany as such and by me and Westberg as
Individuals. When the smash came West
berg had no money to pay about $14,000 of
notes and I had to stand for them. I was
the 'good' man on the paper and the hold
ers took my property.
"This unexpected burden from the tee
company's failure involved ma so hesvlly
that I was unable to care for my obllga
tloss ia my other business snd consequently
I was ruined. I had to begla all over again
In the stone business.
' Held YVeatberg-'s Koto.
"As I had to pay the Ice company's dbts,
I also became the possessor of Its ssets
which consisted principally of Mr. West
berg's personal notes In ths sum of 6,0Q0.
These notes had been issued to the lea
compsny by Mr. Wss t berg to cover, an
overdraft In his account with tte oom
pany. After a number of unsuccessful at
tempts to collect this 14.000 from Mr. West
berg after he bad become a city official, the
matter was Anally, disposed of In the spring
of 1M0. Then my Iswyer told me that as
Westberg waa a candidate for re-election
It would be a good time to make another
attempt to collect the notes. Ths lawyer
found that Westberg was anxious to keep
all knowledge of the affair trom the public
and would do what he could to avoid pub
licity. After considerable dickering West
berg told the lawyer be would pay $300 for
the notes, which, mind you, amounted to
$4,000. We thought we had better take the
1 1300, for as a matter of fact we had given
up ail nope oi ever gcuing n crui, aau tue
$300 we considered Just like finding so much
money. When It came to a settlement,
however, we bad to take $50 In caah and
five notes, payable one each month, for
$30 each. These notes came due after the
election and I held them some time, but
was unable to get any payment out of
Westberg. Finally I turned the paper over
to another party, and I don't know whether
Westberg has settled or not."
Soaked for a Thousand.
Peter D. Mattson, who Is now employed
as Janitor at the federal building, said:
I owned $3,500 of stock In the Oate City
Ice company, of which John Westberg wss
secretary and treaaurer. My experience
with Mr. Westberg in this business was
very unsatisfactory, to aay the least. At
one time I sold a lot In South Omaha for
$1,100 In cash tor the purpose of making an
Inveatment In soms property at Fortieth
and Farnam street. I got the caah from tha
South Omaha property before tha Farnam
street deal waa ready to close and West
berg knew it. Westberg asked me to let
the Ice company have $1,000, but I told him
that I was expecting the Farnam street
deal any day and would have to keep the
money for It. He told me the ice company
would need the use of the money
tor only a few days, and promised
that ha would return It to me on demsnj
It I would let htm have it. Reluctantly I
let him take the thousand dollars, but
with the clear understanding that I waa to
get It back at any time I called for It. Pres
ently the Farnam atreet deal was ready
and I called upon Westberg for my ip-.ney.
He tola me ne couian t pay it, ana when
I reminded him of the solemn promise he
hsd made to return the money on demand,
he got abusive and told me to go to h I.
I never saw a cent of that $1,000 from tho
day I gave It to Westberg."
What Weather Says.
The statements made by Mr. Melqulat
and Mr. Mattson were related by a Bee
reporter to Mr. Westberg, who said. In
"Those stories ars all right as far aa they
go, but they do not cover the whole ground.
It la all a matter of business misfortune.
In which ws all lost money. When tho Oate
City Ice company waa formed I put In
$15,600 worth of property, and It was un
derstood among ths stockholders thst I
was to tske $6,000 out of the company to
pay oft my Indebtedneas at that time. If we
bad made money all would have been well,
but aa It was we lost, and I was unable to
taks care of the $4,000 obligation.
"At the time Melqulat undertook to col
lect the notes Just before an election I
thought It might hurt me to let the matter
get out and so I went and borrowed $50 and
paid It to him and gave htm notes tor $250,
with a mental reservation never to pay
tha notes, because I considered It merely
a casa of blackmail.
"As to Mr. Mattson's story I will say
that It Is true that he loaned the company
that $1,000. but he did It with a full under
standing of the company's condition and It
is no fault of mlns that hs lost the money.
"The $350 cf notes given to Melqulst for
ths $6,000 (obligation were divided between
clir.eelt and bis lawyer. I have paid those
held by tha lawyer and thoae Melqulat
got he turned over to U. A. Lindqulst and
them because Lindqulst made me had by
telling me to fork over that money before
he would atgn my official bond. Oh, I've
been paying for dead horses la this town
long enough. Where I made a mistake was
In not aklng advantage of the bankruptcy
law long ago."
Hla Present Enterprises.
It will be noticed that Mr. Westberg re
marks thst he hss been paying for desd
horses, but the fsct remains thst the "dead
horses" of the Gate City Ice company have
never been paid for. Westberg pleads bus
iness misfortune and poverty aa the ex
cuses for not meeting his obligations, but
during the last year or so he haa had suffi
cient means to invest In speculative enter
prises, as hs Is a heavy atockbolder and
secretary of the Omaha-Wyoming Oil com
pany and the Uintah Petroleum company.
The Omaha-Wyoming company owna 11,180
acres of land In Uintah county, Wyoming,
and the other owns 640 acres In the same
territory. Both companlea are represented
by Westberg to be substantial concefna.
Edward Walker, former mayor of Flor
ence and now a farmer two miles north of
that town, la another sufferer through hav
ing had confidence tn John N. Westberg.
The Walker atory waa well told by West
berg when In conversation with a Bee re
porter on the strset seversl dsys ago.
"It seems that you have been looking for
Mr. Walker," began Wesberg. "That old I
fellow Is pretty foxy. As soon as he heard
that The Bee was looking up his story hs
came into town and asked me to pay him
$100. He told me that $100 now would do
him more good than it I had paid the $1,000
note which be endorsed for me some years
ago, but I had to turn him down, becauae I
really didn't have the money. To be frank
with you I haven't got a dollar, but I've got
friends who ars willing to put up the money
necessary for my campaign. Now, to tell
the truth, I feel sorry for old man Walker
he loat everything he had, but then I'm not
to blame. He went on my note willingly.
I met him on the street and asked him to
step Into the bank and sign with me for
$1,000. NHe thought I wss good for It. and
ao did I at that time, but misfortune came
and the note had to go by the board."

PART OF THE KLAN'S CAMPAIGN
Dlsa-rareful Efforts to lecnre Votes
Resorted to by the And
One of the striking features of the Go
pher Klan's campaign was exhibited to the
cltlsens yesterday. Someone, presumsbly
the "general committee," equipped a wagon
with a pair ot sorry plugs and a six-piece
braes band, and sent it about the city
streets to discourse such lively airs as
"There'll Be a Hot Time," and the like, to
attract attention to the banners which
decorated the sides of the wsgon. On
these were painted with a marking brush
what is supposed to be a representstlon of
a hoc. Under it this Inscription: "We are
not for Moores tor a third term. Are you?'
Who the "we" might be Is left to con
Jecture for no one could be seen in con
nection with the wsgon savs the driver,
and the only evidence thst It waa occupied
was afforded by the dolorous noises msde
by ths brass Instruments spasmodically
blown by the concealed "musicians."- The
general appearance ot the outfit and Its
artistic ensemble lesds to the suspicion
that it is a conception of the asms es
thstle brain that devised the beautiful
Mercer poster, that charming study In
black and white which decorated the bill
boards lust before election last fall. It
Is certain that the announcement that "we'
are not for Mayor Moores enabled many
decent people to make up their minds te
vote for him.
