OMAHA, Jan. 4. Editor of The Hee:
You do not seem to understand the powers
that are guiding and directing the con
spiracy to overthrow our present excellent
city charter. Let hie give you a few facts.
The attorney of the school board was the
attorney and lobbyist at Lincoln ull last
winter for the contractors who controlled
the majority of tho old Hoard of Public
Works, that was an obstruction to all pub
lic Improvements that the said contractors
could not control. This attorney, with the
assistance of several other lobbyists fought
the charter up to the last moment of its
passage, and the said school board attor
ney brought additional amendments on the
day of Its passage for tho pretended pro
tection of the school board In the consolida
tion provision, but really to defeat the
charter. The conspirators thought we could
not get It through, but we did, und than
they vowed they would lieat it In the
One of the new provisions of the charter
provides that all contracts must he made
by ordinance, which will give the people
two weeks to see what they look like.
Contracts cannot be rushed through the

ANNAPOLIS. Md.. Jan. I. -Today's pro
ceedings before the court martial which Is
trying Midshipman Worth W. Foster of I
New Albany, Jnd.. for the Hllraed haling
of Midshipman Chester S. Roberts were of
Interest, us not only were some new forms
of haling explained, but the number of
witnesses who sought to be excused from
answering questions on the ground that
they would Incrimlnnte themselves Indi
cates how thoroughly the practice' of bas
ing has permeated the Institution. The
court ruled that a midshipman did not in
criminate himself by stating that he was
present during haxlng If he did not actu
ally lake part In It himself, but even after
this explanation several midshipmen asked
to be excused from answering questions.
saying they would Incriminate themselves
If they answered.
The record of yesterday's proceedings In
Decatur's case was verified and some small
changes made In the record of Midship
man "Prenmor Coffin's trlsl. The court
then took up the case of Midshipman
Worth W. Foster of New Albany. Ind..
who In charged with hazing Midshipman
Chester 8. Roberts It is aTleged that be
tween the middle of October and December
Fortrr .hased Roberts by compelling him
to stand on his head, to hang from the
clothes locker and eat under the table.
Mr. Theall. Foster's counsel, objected to
the Indefinite lint a re of the time alleged
for the commission of the acts. He said
that he was not able to properly prepare
a defense when the time was so uncertain
and asked that the judge advocate be com
pelled to specify more exactly. The court
was clfared to consider his request.
Foster pleaded not guilty to the charge
and all the specifications.
Midshipman Chester S. Roberts was the
first witness. He identified the accused by
nime. He appeared most reluctant to
testify against the Accused and parried
the question of the Judge advocate until
Captain Rees, president of the court, cau
tioned him that he was under oath to tell
the whole truth In the matter. He then
said that about two weeks after the school
lind opened Foster had ordered htm to
report to Foster's room and he had done
so. Foster ordered him to go In the small
room, and that some one had then held
his thumb In four positions, these in
dicating, he said, that he was In succes
sion to tell his name, where he was from.
who he succeeded in the academy, and to
get on his head. He was compelled, then,
to do "No. 11" and then to hang on the
locker, both of which he did. He then
was asked If he could hear any better at
the table.
The witness answered that he had done
his best before, and was then"ordered to
hang on the locker again. Roberts said
that Foster then sent him fir Midshipman
Clevenger. Foster and Decatur were In
the room, he said, and he lie'.ieved thnt
roster had made the motions with his
Midshipman William R. Mannter of the
second class was the next witness. Counsel
usked thnt the witness be cautioned that
he need not give testimony which would
Incriminate himself, lie was then asked
if he had seen Roberts sent tinder the table
at any time, and iu reply asked If In an
swering this question -fcf the affirmative he
would be incriminating Idniself ' by admit
ting being present when hazing was going
on and not reporting It. The court ruled
that his mere presence would not incrimi
nate the witness. He then said that Mr.
Roberts had been put under the table by
Mr. Foster, he thought.
In response to a question of the court
Maiinier said that Foster was responsible
for the conduct at the table and that It was
not likely thnt a midshipman would be
placed under the table and the midshipman
in charge not know It.
Midshipmen C. R. Hyatt. William L. Beck
and Paul H. Rice, who followed on the
stand, gave testimony corrolorating Slan
r.ler. Midshipman John C. Campbell said that
he had heard Roberts ordered under the
table by Foster. This was the first wit
ness besides Roberts who said directly
that Foster bad given the order to get
under the table.
