The original tally sheets lu the mayoralty

County Canvassers. V. R. Hearst's law

they were found to differ from the returns
on which the account electing Mr. McClel

Mr. Hearst was found ti have- seven more j
votes than were counted for him and in
another the tally sheet showed that twenty

KANSAS CITY. Nov. 10.-l8pecial Tele
gram.) At the fifty-seventh annual dinner
of the Kuire and Fork club at the Coates
house this evening Edward Rosewater. edi
tor of The Omaha Bee. was second speaker
on the program. Mr. Rosewater was given
an ovation when he was Introduced by
President H.. B. Topping of the club, and at
the close of his address he was the recipient
of another. It, being necessary for nlm t0
rise and bow his thanks before the banquet
ers would let him go. His assigned subject
was, "Our Friends the Bosses." He said in
wirt: - '-
"I am here tonight, not In the role of a(
prophet, but to have a heart-to-heart talk
with you on the subject of 'squaring our
conduct" to fit the golden rule, or, as Presi
dent Roosevelt has It,, 'the square deal.'.
"1 do not know why I should be called, on
to back up tho bosses, as I have no use for
those 'of the present age. ' Who makes the
bosses? Why, they are nothing more nor
less than the walking delegates of the big
corporations, which order the ward heelers
to do their bidding, and so lonr a Vu do
not take these corporations out of the con
trol of your municipalities there, will be
bosses, and bad ones, too.
"Now. as to the question of the 'Square
deal.' The president's Idea Is to return to
the golden rule. He wants to protect the
weak from the strong, and give the poor
man an equal show with his more wealthy
. System of Rebates Condemned.
Mr. Rosewater spoke- vigorously against
the System of rebates and spcrhU privileges
given the railways and told. of ttstlmony
he gave before the senafe committee on
Interstate commerce twenty years ago. In
which he advocated the same principles
that are now being advocated. as against
the railways. He thought that if congress
could regulate the rato of fare to be
charged by the cabmen of Washington city.
It has. equal power to regulate the. rail
ways and the rates, and the statements
made by Mr. Olney and others that, con
gress could not do so, were untrue and not
good logic.
He further ststed that the movement for
the regulation' of railways Is meeting, with
Identically the same .kind of opposition
that was directed against . the Interstate
eommerqe bill twenty years ago. "The rail
ways do not want to have It said that they
pre subject to- governmental rontrol, and
that If tho regulations are put Into effect. It
will mean goTerttmefit ownership. I do not
favor governmental ownerships but prefer
that! to railroad ownership of the govern
ment." ' " ,
Mr. Rosewater waa applauded when ' he

who passed sentenco upon Bartlett Rich

attention of Attorney General Knox to tha
case, and at his request Mr. Knox has
wired to District Attorney Baxter for a
full record of the case and the proceedings
