The program for Omaha today has no In

ever so slightly.
Simultaneously with tha announcement
that the South Omaha saloons are to do no '

efforts are maturing to put the same plan

this, but to prevent the sale of liquor at

"I believe." said Elmer E. Thomas, at
torney for the Civic Federation, last night,
"that It Is the desire of the Civic Federa
tlon to have the Sunday closing law en
forced throughout Douglas county."
Mr. Thomas stated that a movement hod
been started In Council Bluffs to compel
Sunday dosing of saloons In that city, lie
said he did not know what citizens were be

that such was the case. A delegation of
Council Bluffs men Is expected to confer

said that the liquor traffic In these places

Although the federation has not acted In
the matter some discussion hss been had
with members of the Board of County Com

JMckey yesterday. It reads: .r
1 The Brotherhood of the Hanscom Park

Sunday closing feature achieved this day
by the arousal of the normal sentiment of
Omaha through the Civic Federation, and
we call upon your excellency to use without
delay the adequate authority at your com

Slocumb law as you are In duty bound to
do under oath of your office.
Now, my dearly beloved men and breth
ren, did you mean by this Insulting lec
ture upon his "duty" to the chief execu
tive of the state that he should order the
mayor to enforce the 8locumb law In
Omaha "under oath of your (his) offleeT"
If this wss your Idea of Governor Mickey's
"duty" "under oath of your (his) office."
It should be said that Governor Mickey
has never taken an oath to do what he
has neither the power nor the disposition
to do. But you did not mean this. I con
cede the fact. You did mean, however,
what you lacked the candor and the cour
age to say, that the governor should issue
an order, "without delay," to the Board
of Fire and Police Commissioners, direct
ing them to strictly enforce the Slocumb
law tn the city of Omaha.
I am very glad, venerable and dear breth
ren, that you gave me excuse and war
rant to respectfully say that, In your bat
blind seal, you hav allowed yourselves to
be misled by some curbstone lawyer Into
the honest belief that the law requires the

and enjoins upon It the duty to strictly
enforce the Slocumb law In this city In
respect to the closing of the saloons on
Sunday. If I am right about this, you
w ill be surprised and probably very sad, to
know that the board has no power to do
what they think is their duty to do. It -cannot
enforce the Slocumb law. "strictly"
or otherwise, and under the decision of
Judge Kstelle do you happen to know
Ie Estelle? If not you may have lienrd
of him In regard to the powers of
the police commission. He derided and held
that It had no power, no legal authority tn
enforce the Slocumb law. Carl Wright,
late city attorney, and the present City
Attorney Breen, always advise the board
against sny attempt to exercise any such
power. Judge William D. Mcllugh. long an
honored member of tho Board of Fire and
Police Commissioners, always held to the
opinion snd acted on It.
I am not speaking for the police board
nor for any member of It but myself Ir
making this statement, for I am not speak
ing as a member of the police board. An
a plain citizen of Omaha. Who for many
years edited a "religious" newspaper In
this city and said more In Its columns pnd
made more public addresses In behalf of
sobriety and sgslnst alcoholic evils In those
days than any dozen Methodist preachers
and deacons ever did, 1 thought It right
and proper to kindly admonish my very
reverend and noble brethren and slstern
that they don't know what they are talking
about. GEORGE L. MILLKR.
What Will Come Sextf
Commenting upon the efforts of Elmer E.
Thomas and the Civic Federation as re
gards the liquor traffic, a Saloon man said:
"It is difficult for me to see Just where
the sgttstlon of tha Civic Federation mix
ture is going to stop. It will be remem
bered that a year ago all that Attorney
E. E. Thomas wanted way the closing of
the saloons st midnight. This wss con
ceded. This year the sams interests appear
sgaln. Now they want Sunday closing
added to midnight closing. This, too. Is
granted. What will be demanded next
year? I look for the hostility toward the
brewers snd saloons to take the form of
raising the annual license, even though
It Is now $1,000 a year for each place.
"I have noticed that the arguments Mr.
Thomas makes for the closing of saloons
Bunday may Just as well be applied to
closing the saloons all the time. In Other
words, they are prohibition arguments,
based on prohibition doctrine. Personally
I do not think Omaha wants anything of
this kind, yet I should like to know what
the federation will Insist upon one year
