EFFORT TO ELECT DEMOCRATS UNMASKED 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 the World-Herald takes the pains to ad ust Dickinson's head to the editorial gull lotlne In the morning edition of October I In thla fashion: A Ds s Injnaetlem. "Government by Injunction haa coma to be recognised as one of the rreat evils of the day, and a restraining order, which nas Deen grained Dy judge Dlckinaon of thla dlHtrlct, la certainly open to criticism.

Immediately after the publication of that editorial an order was nade by Judge Dickinson modifying the restraining order referred to In the editorial, but the modi fication appears to be a more drastic In- trument than the original order, for the original order specified the acts and doings restrained, while the so-called modified order let down the bars entirely and re trained the defendants from "making or causing to be made, any complaint against the plaintiff for setting up and keeping In said pool room any device, machine or Instrument used tn operating said pool room.' Vlt Is worthy of note that Judge Dickinson, on the last day of the Ak-Sar- Ben carnival, dissolved the restraining or der absolutely. And thla Is some of the warp and woof that enters Into the demo cratic ticket that la advertised as 'all wool and a yard wide, and warranted not to rip, ravel or run down at the heels.' " FOR AN OMAHA BEAUTIFUL Prospect Hill Improvers Line V la 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 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. CITY COUNCIL PROCEEDINGS Special Meeting; Held, bnt Tery Little Pressing Business Gets Attention. 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 there, and Chairman' Nicholson of the street Improvement "and viaducts com mittee pleaded for more time on the spe cial report In his hands1. The report deals with the ordinance Vhlch will grant to the Chicago Great 1 Western railroad the right and franchise' Tfor certain territory within the bounds of' the city. President 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 received, but theae were speedily disposed f by President Zlmman announcing that they could not be heard at this special meeting and they were laid over without being opened. City Clerk Elbourn an nounced a list of places for registration and the ' following resignations were ac cepted from the registration board: J. H. Berger, George W. Coryell. H. A. Daniel, W. S. Greenleaf and George Eckles. A resolution commending the action of the city clerk In publishing the notices of the places of registration In The Evening Bee and the World-Herald was adopted, as was also one changing the place for registration in the Fourth district of the Fourth ward to 2GM Douglas street The last resolution, , providing for the filling qf vacancies on the board of registration for both parties, was adopted, and then, on motion of Councilman O'Brien, the meeting adjourned. IRST CONVICTION OF KIND Precedent Established y Finding . Gnllty Woman Charged with Larceny front Person, In the criminal division of the district court the first conviction ever made before Judge Estelle on the charge, f larceny from the person waa made yesterday after noon. The case was that of Minnie Brown, colored. 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 ject to a penitentiary sentence. 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 expect In future cases of this kind. They victimise every one of the persons who have exhibited such poor Judgment as te visit theae places. There are no reasons however, why wholesale robberies should be made a rule, even In theae resorts." In this case the proeecutlng attorney was Assistant County Attorney Frank L. Weaver.
