"I am tor Frank K. Moores for mayor and
for A. H. Hennlngs for treasurer," remarked
Brneet Uertens in a crowd of democrats
Thursday night, "and I defy any man to
.uestlon my democracy."
Mr. Mertens' stand In this campaign Is
of special Interest because three years ago
he was on the democratio ticket as the
candidate for city treasurer against Mr.
"I am tor Hennings," continued Mr. Mer
tens, "because I know that he has made a
first clasa city official nd every cltlieni
who wants good government should sup
port him for a second term, regardless of
party ties. If I had been elected three
years ago and had made u good a record
as Mr. Hennlags has made I would now be
expecting, from the cltiiens of Omaha an
endorsement of my work.
"As for Frank Moores, I will say that
he has made a good mayor a better mayor
than Ed Howell would make. I was op
posed to Howell for the nomination for
the reason that I did not consider him a
go'.d man for the office, and he Is no bet
ter now than he was before the democratic
convention. Ia a city election X am not
going to vote tor any man simply became
he la a democrat, but I am going to make
my selections on the broad ground of good
cltlsenshlp. I don't think any democrat
who is familiar with affairs tnalds the party
and who really knows what Ed Howell
stands for can argue that It would be for
the best Interests of Omaha to have a
change In the mayor's office at this time."
W. J. Perry, president of the Perry Live
Stock Commission company of South Omaha
and a resident of the Fourth ward, met a
little party of republican and democratin
politicians on Sixteenth street Thursday
afternoon and the dlscuaaion naturally
drifted to the city campaign. Mr. Perry
was known to have taken an active part
la the opposition to Mayor Moores before
the primaries and some one In the party
suggested that he waa now among the
"Not on your life," exclaimed Mr. Perry,
as he reached into his vest pocket and
pulled out a roll of bills. "Here's 1250 to
back my opinion that Frank E. Moores
will he elected on the 6th of May. I was
against him at the primaries, but after
he won out fairly against the odds that
were stacked up against him and after the
corrupt practices of his opponents in buy
ing that Eighth ward delegate I say that
every repi-olloen who loves fair play ought
to vote .or him. I am not a supporter of
bribery at any stage of any game."
Mr. Perry found no taker for his $250
or any part of It. despite the fact that be
gradually reduced the amount to $1 to
accommodate any enthusiastic Howell man
in the party.
Late Thursday afternoon, when Ed
Howell learned that the Douglas County
Democracy waa almost at white heat be
cause he had neglected to give It any rep
resentation on the democratio executive
committee, there waa quick action. The
organization was to hold its regular weekly
meeting In the evening and thero was no
time to loae. Therefore measengers were
dispatched to inform Lyale I. Abbott. Louis
J. Plattl and Joeeph P. Butler that they
were members of the executive committee.
These men then supposed that they were to
repreaent their respective wards in place

of the Jacksonlans who had previously been
put on the committee, but when the com
mittee met in the evening they found that
the Jacksonlan members were all to remain
and ths three Douglas Countyltes were
merely added to the committee, giving the
Third, Fourth and Fifth wards two rep
resentatives each, while each of the other
wards had but one. The adding of an extra
man in each of three wards was a good
deal like the placing of a fifth wheel on a
wagon, and ao the Douglas Countyltes
asked to have one of their men put on In
each of the remaining six wards. This
plan, however, was frowned upon by Willie
Herdman, who, by.the way, has been made
chairman of the committee by his brother

he is to "see" the local brewers and the

The literary editor of The Bee begs to.
acknowledge receipt of the twenty-ntntn
volume of William O. McAvoy's interesting
work on "Persons We Have Met. Never
Met, and Never Care to Meet," otherwise
termed the Omaha city directory.
For students of Mr. McAvoy's previous
works it will be sufficient to state that this
one has bearing upon the same era and
deals with characters he baa already made
familiar. But, to be frank, the author's
style is becoming tedious. There Is an
everlasting sameness about what he writes
and one searches in vain for some pungent
paragraph that can be quoted before the
Philosophical society or played as original
at a swell dinner. He grinds out pags after
page In plain matter-of-fact, work-day,
battleax style and then attempts an awk
ward concession to the tendency of modern
journalism by sticking In a yellow ribbon
as a place keeper.
Ho la Pandering; to Prosterlty.
There will come a time when Mr. Mc
Avoy's works will be searched for dili
gently and studied profoundly, perhaps;
but the search and the study will be
prompted by that same desire to monkey
with the facts and names of the long-dead
past that now animates certain distin
guished gentlemen who are scratching the
pyramids of Egypt in the hope of digging
up more scandals about Mr. Ptolemy, a
deceased contractor, and his family. Mr.
Ptolemy is generally conceded to have been
unfair to union labor, but Eastern Institu
tions of learning are not content to let the
matter rest with the corpse, and one can
not refrain from soma times suspecting that
Mr. McAvoy, noting the expensive expedi
tions they have sent out, has been fired by
an unholy ambition to write more tor re
search, present and future, than for simple
entertainment, and to provide clues for tbs
historians of 2903.
To make a bad matter worse, the author
has been guilty of rank partiality. In tbla
laat volume he makes honorable mention
of exactly 1,065 persona and firms whose
names begin with Mc. The Browa family
la mentioned III times, the Smith family
110. ths Jones family lit. the White family
9T, the Miller family 101. the Rogers family

on an average of only a dozen to two doien
times, unless they pay for It.
Caters to tbo Classes.
Moreover, he seems to be catering to cer
tain classes of business and professions. He
mentions 163 physicians and forty-nine den
tists, but only a handful of undertakers;
20S saloons, but only 116 clergymen; fifty
two loan and bonding companies, but only
ten collection agencies and six constables;
20 lawyers, but only one court where a
man can go into bankruptcy voluntarily;
130 music teachers, but just a 'tew dealers
in ear muffs; fifty-five tailors, forty-one
laundries and twelve Chinamen, but not one
woman who will sew on buttons for ovo;
sixty-five newspspers and publications, but
only one home for aged Indigent; -etebfv-elgbt

Pandering to local pride, he mentions ISt
firms using the word "Omaha" In thel.
names and forty-six using the word "Ne

gin their names with Z, but gives X the

that it is "a book for the family," he gives
prominence to the Vesbnowskla, the Telle
