WORKING MAN IN POLITICS

JCdward RoMirolrr'a Addrrss to Voters
of fteTenth Ward on Rights and
Defies of the tborlnsj
Man la PolMlra.
Following I the full text of the speech
of E1wsrd Roewter, delivered In the
Seventh ward Friday evening. dealing with
tbe question of labor and the right and
dutlea of the laboring man, particularly as
they affect the present municipal cam
paign: Fellow Citizens: 1 might ay fellow
worklngmen, for I spring from the ranks
of labor and have been a bread winner
nearly all ray life. I commenced to earn
a livelihood when I was 12 yean old.
I served thirteen years as a telegraph
operator and I doubt whether any of you
put In aa many hcurs at hard labor a I
do. For more than thirty years I have
been an employer of labor, but my sym
pathies always have been with the toll'rs
because t know what It means to be a
Tonight I propose to talk to you about
the political rights and duties of the work
log man. I want to Impress upon you the
fact that the most precious asset of tbe
American working man Is his elective fran
chise. In no other land under the aun Is
there such absolute equality before the
law as Is enjoyed by the citizens of this
republic. At the ballot box each of you Is
a sovereign; each of you Is the equal of
the richest man In the land; wealth and
station count for nothing under our political
system and corporations cannot cast a
Ingle ballot except through debased and j
.o War on ( orpnmtlonn.
Now I do not decry corporations as such.
I would not counsel or countenance war
fare upon them except when they levy un
righteous tribute upon the people or con
spire to destroy self-government. But
they cannot destroy self-government as long j
as tne worklngmen or America are true to
themselves and truo to their country, as
long as they do net barter away their man
hood either for money or the opportunity
to earn money.
Tbe wag worker of America who labor
for a living In the shops. In the mills. In
the factories. In the warehouses and office
buildings are the bulwark of America's free
institutions. The greatest menace to
America's free institutions is the
political coercion of worklngmen
by their employers. This doea
not relate only to corporations, but also
to Individuals. When you hire out to any
body for wages you agree to give up a
certain number of hours to your employer
and he pays you for the muscle and brain
you hava devoted to his use, but in selling
your labor you do not barter away your
soul, and your employer has no more right
to compel you to vote for ths party of his
own choice than he has to ask you to match
your religion to his religion. The em
ployer who threatens you with discharge
or seeks to compel you to vota against
your honest convictions la more dangeroua
than the man who would advise you to bur
glarise a store or to aet a house on Ore. If
ever the time comes that the corporate em
ployers or single employers of large bodies
of men can deliver them at the ballot
box Ilk so many chattels the government
of th people by the people baa perished
from the earth. . ,
Some Omaha History.
Now let me relate to you a story of a
ampalgn In the city of Omaha Just thirty
years ago. Back in 1873 every office in
tbe city hall and court bouse was Oiled by I
democrats. The republicans appeared to
be in a hopeless minority, but they nom
inated a ticket for county offices and
started to make a vigorous campaign. The
outlook for a republican victory was de
cidedly doubtful until the day before elec
tion. About noon on that day two tele
graph operators railed on me at the old
Bee building and one of them wrote a
message which, In substance, read as fol
lows OMAHA, Oct. . 187S: To S. H. H.
Clark, Oeneral Superintendent Union Pa
ciflo Railroad, North Platte. Neb. Please
Instruct I'nlon Pacific shopmen to cast
their vote for the democratic candidates
for sheriff and treasurer.
(8(gned). A. J. POPPLETON.
Mr. Poppleton was at that time general
pure. The critical ordeal through which the expectant mother must
pass, however, is so fraught with dread, pain, suffering and danger,
that the very thought of it fills her with apprehension and horror.
There is no necessity for the reproduction of life to be either painful
or dangerous. The use of Mother's Friend so prepares the system for
the coming event that it is safely passed without any danger. This

, W. H. BRILL, Dlst. Pass. Agent,
attorney of the Vnlon Pacific and the
message was very suggestive. I asked the
operators whether that message really bd
passed over the wires and they said yea.
I then asked them to bring me the original
mersage, if possible. TVIthln a few min
utes they presented me the original. Mr.
Popplcton'a handwriting waa as familiar to
me as my own and I knew It was hi at
once. Immediately thereupon The Bee pub
lished an earnest appeal to the worklngmen
of Omaha, and especially to the I'nlon Pa
cific slirmen, to spurn this attempt at
coercion as an Insult and to rebuke the
railroad magnates by casting their votes
for the republican ticket.
Under ordinary conditions It might
not have been proper for me
to make uee of a dispatch sur
reptitiously carried awsy from ths tele
graph office, but Inasmuch as this dispatch
was virtually an attempt to deatroy free
government I have never yet seen fit to
apologise for that act and I stand today
where I stood thirty years ago and where I
have always stood against the coercion of
the wage worker by his employer.
Drove BnperlntendeBt'a Order.
At that time we had no Australian bal
lot. Every voter had to bring a separate
ballot and deposit It In the ballot box or
hand It to the Ju'e of election, and It was
very eaoy for an. body who was a spotter
to see Just how any man voted; but these
I'nlon Pacific shopmen, almost to a man,
braved the order of the general superin
tendent, walked up to the ballot box and
voted the straijht republican ticket from
top to bottom and elected tbe entire
ticket. (Applause.) They asserted their
manhood, and they braved the chance of
being dismissed or punlBbed In some way.
They demonstrated that American working
men are not slaves, but are free men, and
will maintain their freedom, no matter
what comes. (Applause.) Are Omaha
worklngmen of today of a lower
standard of public morals than
they were thirty years ago? I do not be
lieve they are. I do not believe that they
will allow themselves to be dragooned,
coerced or Instructed Into voting for any
man because their mauler, their employer,
their superintendent, aska them to do so.
(Applause.) I maintain that the employer
has no more right to ask his employe to
vote his pirtlcular party ticket or for can
dldatea he prefers than he has to compel
his employes to Join the church in which
he worships. Every American citizen bas
a right to cast his ballot according to the
dictatea of his own conscience, and that Is
the highest and most sacred privilege of
an American citizen, and ought to be re
spected by the men who employ others.
(Applause.) During the entire period I
have been an employer I have employed
thousanda of men, and never at any stage,
no matter how deeply Interested, have I
dictated or sought to dictate the vole of
any man In my employ. I have had demo
crats, republicans, populists and socialists
and I have in my employ today men whe
have been at times bitterly opposed to me
politically and yet tbey continue at their
work Just the same as If they voted with
me, and will so continue as long as I
have anything to do with the publication
of the paper that I founded. (Applauae.)
Orders from Employers.
Now, an edict has gone forth In this city,
from certain Jobbing "houses and corpora
tions, that the men who are employed by
them must vote against Frank E. Moorea
Tbey have given them their instructions,
and given them the privilege of voting
either for Benson or Howell, but they will
not permit them to vota for Frank E.
Moorea. I want to known whether any
American wage-worker in the city of Omaha
whether Indifferent or vitally lntereated.
who has got the right to cast a ballot, will
permit himself to be degraded In that man
ner? (From the audience: "No!" Loud
Tbe fact that these corporations and Job
bers are combining together to down the
present administration of this city is the
moat conclusive proof that (he freedom of
the city Is In danger; that these corpora
tions want to rule the city Instead of being
controlled and regulated by It. That is
the issue of this campaign. The person
ality of tbo men cuts comparatively small
figure. It la not half aa Important that
Frank E. Moorea should be elected as that
you should elect a man that these corpora
tions and Jobbers do not own. (Applause.)
Why Is It that all theae corporations and
Jobbing concerns are opposed to Frank E.
Moorea? Simply because he will not do
their bidding; because be Is not what they
would call a safe man, a man that will do
what they want.
Howell for Corporations.
Now, while I do not wish to decry or
berate Mr. Howell, who Uvea In thla ward,

officer, as a member of the City Council,
aa a member of the lertslature, he waa sub
servient to the corporations, and is their
preferred candidate, because tbey know, no
matter what has been published, no matter
what promises have been made, they have
a string on blm. and can pull blm back any
time that they want to after be is elected.
(Applause.) Why Is It they trouble them
selves tn opposing Mr. Moores? Why are
they also opposing William Hunter, the
republican candidate for comptroller?
Simply because for many years these cor
porations and the wholesale dealers have
been paying comparatively a small amount
of taxes men, who have In their establish
ments hundreds of thousands of dollars
worth of merchandise. Insured for hundreds
of thousands of dollars were assessed at
from $5,000 to $25,000; and that continued
tO b tbe case for VPtri until tha hnntan
was shifted. They should have carried It
cheerfully, but It was put upon the shoulders
oi me poor nome owner, and Incidentally
upon the working men, for even If the
workingman was not the home nwn.r ha
a renter and he had to pay rent, and If
ins taxes upon a piece of property were
high, tbe owner of that little hnuaa that
he rented had to charge Just that much
more rent, ana that burden was placed
upon those who least could bear It and
shifted from those who best could bear It.

The principal owner of that mnem ia ,it
today fighting tooth and toe-nail against

Because Mr. Moores appointed two men
on the Board of Review that raised thla
assessment from less than linn nnn tn linn .
000 of $400,000. It is still too low. If Insur

POLICE GREETING FOR DAVIS
Man with a Peenllar Record Is
Received with Opes)
Charles Davis dropped Into tbe city two
days ago, oatenslbly from Hlllsdsle, Ia.,
after an absence of several years, and was
received by the police with annoying
effusiveness and taken up to tha city Jail
for dinner, and supper, too, for that mat
ter, and placed on the register as a aus
picious character. On his person were two
fine specimens of the skeleton key, and ths
authorities are speculating as to whether
Mr. Davis did the piece of entering Fri
day at Twenty-third and Davenport streets.
In which work ths door was opened and
closed by a skeleton key. Davis has served
two penitentiary terms, ona of them under
peculiar circumstances. Charles Davla bas
a brother named Joe and about eight years
ago the pair were arrested and conv'cted,
Charles or petty larceny and Joe for burg
lary. These brothers wars twins and hsrl
to tell one from another. Ths sheriff took
the burglary brother to tha penitentiary
and passed him In to serve his two years,
leaving the petty larceny man to do hli
thirty days In the county Jail here. Jt
waa not. until about two weeka afterwards
that It waa discovered lhat ths wrong
brother had been taken to Lincoln. The
scheme was that Charles, answering to the
name or Joe, should go to the penitentiary
and serve for thirty days, until the burglar,
Joe, had finished the larceny term and
gotten away, after which Charles -waa to
declare bla identity and be liberated. The
sheriff, thinking to spoil the game and aes
Justice through as scheduled, took ths real
Joe to Lincoln aud asked for aa exchange.
He then found that thla could not b dons
