World-Herald's Zeal for "Nonpartisan"
Ticket Provei Disastrous, .
Jadare Bnrtlett Exposes the Trick Be
hind Which the. Effort te Defeat
Tat Renabllraa Candidates
Is MasaneraSlag.
E. M. Bartlett, chairman of the Judiciary
campaign committee, for the Fourth Judicial
district, In apeaklng of the antics of the
World-IIerald In Its campaign, says:
"The front page of the Morning World
Herald of October 8 hna a cartoon. It Is a
picture of a man soiling goods over the
counter, before whose wondering gam the
merchant holds the flimsy, gauty stuff. The
merchant In the cartoon Is labeled "Douglas
County Democracy.' The goods he la dis
playing Is a boit of cloth and Is labeled
'Democratic Ticket.' The customer la
labeled 'Voter.' The customer is closely ex
amining the material. He looks doubtful
and serious.. The merchant wears one of
those beatific, disingenuous, Bryan smiles.
Above the picture, tn black type, are the
words, 'Good Good a' Underneath the pic
ture la the following: 'All wool and a yard
wide, and warranted not to rip, ravel or
run down at the heel.' The expression
upon the merchant's countenance, as well
aa the language Itself, Indicates the extent
of the sincerity of the merchant (Douglas
County Democracy) In representing the
stuff to be 'good goods' to his customer, the
voter in representing that It Is 'all wool'
and a "yard wide,' ete. If It did not run
down at the heel It was because It had no
heel to run down.
"Turning from this cartoon to the edi
torial page of the same paper the true
character of theae goods Is disclosed. The
cotton threads, frayed out, proclaim It to be
shoddy. It does not feel right to the voter.
There Is something wrong with it. And this
tell-tale material, which enters Into the
cloth, ran be plainly seen under the edi
torial heading, 'A Dangerous Injunction.'
The piece of goods exhibited Is not 'all
wool' nor a "yard wide.' It will Yip and
ravel.' and when we look at the poor old
'Douglas County Democracy we find It
badly run down at the heel.
Indications of CetoB Warp.
'Going back In the files of the World-
Herald to September 6th, last, we find some
more Indications of the cotton warp In theae
headlines: 'Bar Ticket Nominated by the
Democrats. Favors the Selection of Non
partisan Judiciary In this Judicial District.
Irving F. Baxter, Republican. George A.
Day. Republican. Charles T. Dickinson, Re
publican. Lee 8. Eatelle, Republican. Ar
thur N. Ferguaon, Democrat. Ernest C.
Page, Democrat Guy R. C. Read, Repub
lican.' '
"Baxter, Day and Eetelle' were nominated
by the republican party. Read and Dick
inson were candidates for nomination in the
republican convention and failed of nom
ination. The democratic party Is In the
minority In this Judicial district, and has
no possible chance of electing a democrat
to the bench by its own party vote. To
elect one democratic Judge by hook or crook
Is the best they could hope to do, but the
endeavor Is to elect two democrats. They
nominated only two democrats, and the
election of those two Is desired by the dem
ocratic party. How can this be done while
the republican party has a large majority
In this district T Simply by creating dis
tention In the republican ranks. How do
they expect to accomplish thte? Their
course has made It' plain'.' ft Is to be done
by making a fight against Just two repub
licans, Sears and Sutton, and booming
Dickinson and Read In the hope of making
possible the election of Ferguson and Page.
Itnmbled am Sears.
"But, In starting out upon this course
they find that Sears' record Is too strong
for them. Much to their dismay, they
learn that he is one of the ablest lawyers
In the district, and Is popular and welt
thought of at home. With this condition
of affairs confronting them the situation
becomes desperate. They talked for a time
of putting Baxter and Estelle off of the
ticket, because they had not filed a state
ment of expenses for their endorsement by
the democratic! convention, but the demo
crats found It was not necessary as Baxter
and Estelle had not been candidates before
that convention. A prominent democratic)
attorney wrote and published an exhaustive
legal opinion to Justify .the committee In
taking the names of these two, candidates
off the ticket, but his premises and conclu
sions were unsound, and, as there was no
law against a man running for office If
he did not file a statement of expenses tthe
Inhibition only preventing him from getting
a certificate of election In the event of his
failing to file such statement), that scheme
was abandoned.
'The World-Herald's attack on account of
his alleged Incompetency proved to be so
absurd that It put Sears way ahead, but a
place must be made for a democrat at
11 hasards. The World-Herald Is not In
terested In Dickinson and Read, apostate
republicans, but Is Interested In Ferguaon
and Page, stmon pure democrats, so the
World-Herald applied the ax to Dickinson's
head. It was a bloody act, but It had to
be dona. True, Dickinson bad ruined hla
chances politically when from pique or de
sire to hold office he left his own party and
became a democratic nonpartisan, but to
make assurances of his defeat doubly sure

Immediately after the publication of

Dickinson modifying the restraining order

original order specified the acts and doings

trained the defendants from "making or

Favor of the Move et the
Central Club.
An Omnha Beautiful" was the theme
discussed at the meeting of the Proapect
Hill Improvers last evening. Small attend
ance did not deter those who were there
from entering earnestly and vigorously Into
the spirit of the meeting.
Mr. Dally spoke of the condition of
streets and alleys, which, he told the club,
are In fair condition for winter, and In
view of the shortage of funds Tith which
to carry on street work the probability of
further Improvement In that direction he
considered very remote this fall.
Mr. Talbot, who looks after the street
lighting on the hill, or at least ts willing to
help, spoke of the necessity for a gas lltrht
at the corner cf Thirty-sixth and Dy.r.tu?
He moved that the matter be referred to
the commlttse on street lighting, which

He also spoke at some length of the plan
proposed at the laat meeting of the central
body looking to the organisation of the
school children Into Junior clubs, to help
along In the general scheme to render the
city beautiful and of the proposition, also
advanced by the Central club, to place the
grounds of the city schools In the hands of
the park commissioners. He advised the
Prospect Hill Improvers to be alert, and
being the oldest club tn the city suggested
that it was proper for the club to take Im
mediate steps to organize a Junior club and
xpressed the hope that such a dub would
be a tangible thing before the date of the
proposed mass meeting.

The call of Mayor Moores for a special
meeting of the city fathers laat night
brought forth a quorum, but there was
mighty little doing. ' The mayor waa not

with the ordinance Vhlch will grant to

Zlmman stated that an opportunity will
be given to the property holders to plead
their cases today at 10 o'clock, and Mr.
Nicholson then annbunced that he would
hold his report until next Tuesday.
The entire meeting was not over twenty
mlnutea' duration and the members cor
ralled were Evans, Dyball, Nicholson,
O'Brien and Zlmman. ' The absentees were
Back, Hoye, Huntington and Schroeder. A
bunch of four vetos from the mayor were

they could not be heard at this special

nounced a list of places for registration
and the ' following resignations were ac

from the person waa made yesterday after
noon. The case was that of Minnie Brown,
The defendant' In this case was a resi
dent of the burnt district Of late the In
crease in the number of cases where lar
ceny from the person was charged, has
worried the county officials, as it Is a hard
matter te secure convictions In these cases.
The plaintiff In this case, H. D. Jones,
while a visitor at Miss Brown's domicile,
had six $20 gold pieces taken from his per
son and charged Miss Brown with the
theft. The case was called before Judge
Eatelle Tuesday morning and yesterday
afternoon the Jury returned a verdict of
guilty and the defendant Is therefore sub

Speaking et this case, Judge Estelle
aid: "This conviction Is a matter of much
concern to me and I am gratified to know
that we have established this precedent
It will give the habitues of the resorts
below the line some Idea of what they may
