. MOORES GOES TO BROATCfl
Mayor Take Up Publicly with His Mort
Implacable Personal Enemy.
SSUES WRITTEN STATEMENT TO FRIENDS

Mall Circles or Asjiaaa; the
I oral ralltlelana.
Tlie foreshadowed conversion of Mayor
Moores to the support of W. J. Broatch's
mayoralty ambitions Is confirmed by a
statement Saturday defining his position.
The mayor says his chief reason for as
suming tha attitude Is because he believes
Broatch to be the stronger of the two re
publican aspirants opposed to E. A. Benson.
The mayor's announcement caused no
particular surprise. It had been known for
some time among the politicians that a
deal had been made between Broatch and
Moores. One of the mayor's friends said:
"Mayor Moores, of course, has nothing
to gain or lose personally by taking a
hand In this campaign, but he feels a sense
of responsibility to hie friends who gave
Mm support in the past. It Is, in a meas
ure, to look after the future welfare of
these that he has decided to take a posi
At the city hull It Is thought the ap
pointees and employes of the present ad
ministration will be divided between al
legiance to Ilonnlngs and Broatch. Two of
the most active Broatch men are Gus In
spector Iynch and Plumbing Inspector
The statement from the mayor, though
not signed, was typewritten on official let
ter paper and given out by his secretary.
Yes, after mature deliberation h ml dire
ful study of the situation, I realise that
we must have a man for mayor who will
be mayor for all of the people and not for
a certain class.
While I do not approve of lawlessness or
excesses, yet with a city of our varied
population we must govern to suit all sorts
and conditions of men.
The rich man can take care of himself,
while the poor man must be protected In
In deciding to support Mr. W. J. Broatch
I do so believing him to be the strongest
of the two men pitted against Krastus A.
Benson, whose nomination and election, I
.believe, would give an administration that
would be a menace to the prosperity of our
While everyone knows that Mr. Broatch
and I have been political enemies In the
past, yet I am big enough and broad
minded enough to bury my personal griev
ances for the good of our city.
For this reason I ask my many friends
to help me support William J. Broatch
at the coming primaries.
The schism In the Fontanelle club had a
further manifestation Saturday, when Rob
ert Houghton tiled his application for a
place on the republican primary ballot for
the eouncilmanlc nomination from the
Twelfth ward. Mr. Houghton was a candi
date for the endorsement from the Fnnta
nelles, but tho branding Iron wss applied
to D. A. N. Chase, a new comer In the
ward. Mr. Houghton, being one of the
governors and founders of the Indian band
and a president of the Twelfth for "nigh
onto twenty year," deemed himself ab
solved. "No organization need think It can eon
trot me," said Mr. Houghton when he made
hi entry official. "I should like to see any
bunch that thinks it can stop me from run
ning for the council. I'm going to skin this
man Chase and want you to watch me do
Mr. Houghton remarked furthermore he
didn't care a straw whether the Fontanelle
machinists still hanging around the wig
wam liked it or not. He Is out for Bob
B. A. Benson declares that he proposes
to have a platform of his own upon which
to make his mayoralty campaign. In addi
tion to that framed by Fontanelle machine.
Further than this he does not commit him
self, nor say when he planned to let it loose
on the public.
It la said the "good government" council
manlo slate framed up at secret meetings
by a bunch of democrats who pretend to
cultivate "reform" aspirations Is almost
ready for public scrutiny and is to be given
to the newspapers In time for a Sunday
GAMBLING WITH DEATH.
What Many of I a Are Jtotua; Three
Times a Day.
For everything we get something Is
taken away. Every act pulls two ways.
Some men In power dole out their souls
for It. i They can't have soul and power at
the same time.
And ao. In. this quick-living age, most of
us can't have energy and, health at the
same time. One or the other must be lost,
and It Is usually health.
We know we are doing wrong and would
like to reform, but we have a morbid fear
of being laughed at If we aim to live and
eat according to conscience and good sense.
Some of us break away for a while and
enslave ourselves to a diet. ' We read about
the hardy Scotsman being fed on porridge
and oatcake, making soldiers of muscle
and dash, and how Caesar's army was fed
on corn. But the diet doesn't last long.

BELLEVUE GETS FIRST PLACE
Charles ri. Baskerville Wins State
Oratorical Contest and dura
Bellevue will send Nebraska's representa
tive to the Intertstate Oratorical associa
tion contest at WooBter, O., In April.
Charles E. Baskerville will be the man,
for Mr. Baskerville won first place In tiie
state contest at Lincoln Friday night. At
this contest each of the colleges In Ne
braska that Is a member of tho Intercol
legiate Oratorical association had Its ora
tor. This contest Is held each year for
the purpose of selecting the state repre
sentative to the Interstate contest, and
this year Bellevue won, and not Doane, as
was erroneously stated. Each state In the
Interstate association there are ten of
them holds similar state contests, at which
lta Interstate representative is chosen.
At the Lincoln contest W. G. Sternberg
of Creighton and A. Y. McVay of Wesleyan
tied for second place. N. Duntup of Has
tings was third, Louis Knowl of Doane
and A. J. liolllngsworth of Cotner tied
for fourth, Dales Blarr of Grand Island was
Hfth and B. C. Bailey of York sixth.
The victorious oration was on the 'sub
ject, "The Power of Thought." Bellevue
is proud of its honor and has earnest
hopes of carrying oft first place in that
larger forum at Wooster, where the ten
best orators at the various states will
meet and try their steel. Mr. Baskerville
Is from Edgemont, S. D., and Is a hard
student. He posesses unusual natural pow
ers of oratory, w-hleh have been well culti
vated. He Is a senior.
Some men now of distinction have
won these interstate ' contests. Senator
Robert M. LaFollette of Wisconsin is one
of them; John H. Flnley, first, president
of Knox college, his alma mater, then edi
tor of Munsey's new magazine, then In
cumbent of the chair of politics at Prince
ton, and now president of tho College of
New York City, is another, and William J.
Bryan Is another. The states Mncludod In
the association are among the leaders in
educational lines and have an aggregate of
ninety colleges and universities represented
In the interstate association, and these
acjiools have a combined attendance of
25,000, so that It is always counted e. dis
tinction worth the while to carry off the
laurels at the contest.
NEW TRAINS JM BURLINGTON
Passenger to Korthwest Makes Fine
First Run-Excursion for
, the Cat-Off.
Joe Williams, traveling pessengt-r u go lit
of the Burlington, has returned from the
initial trip of the new Burlington train
to the northwest, going as far as Helena,
"The surprise to me of the whole trip
was the large volume of travel, especially
on my return, when we met the long
trains of passengers who were taking ad
vantage of the (low colonists rates which
went Into effect February 15 and will con
tinue during the spring," said Mr. Wil
liams. "The trains In every direction were
filled with these seekers after homes.
"The ' government sanitarium at Hot
Springs Is being pushed right along under
the impetus of the mild winter weather
which Is prevalent In that country. It
will be ready to receive the Invalids some
time this summer. Residents in the north
western part of the state were more than
pleased with the new train, which will
fill a want and be of Immense value to that
section as well as to Omaha."
The Burlington will open Its station nt
Fremont for business March 6, and trains
will be operated on the line from Fre
mont to Ashland, when the Great Northern
company, which constructed the road, will
turn It over to the Burlington to be op
erated by that line.
The Burlington will operate the new line
from Billings to Great Fails, Mont., as
soon as that line Is constructed. This will
connect the Great Northern, the Burling
ton and the Northern Pacific.
Lincoln business men are considering the
Idea of opening the Burlington cut-off with
an excursion which will bring the whole
northeastern portion of Nebraska to Lin
coln for the day. They think the Bur
lington could be induced to put in a rate
which would move a large number of people
to Lincoln and thus give the business men
of that city an opportunity to learn the
advantages of Lincoln. Omaha business
men are planning an excursion over the
cut-off as soon as It Is opened, to let the
Omaha business men get acquainted with
the merchants along the new line.

VICTIM CONCEALS FACT THREE DAYS
Police Them Irrest the Robbers and
lllseover They Had Returned the
Stolen Money to Their
A peculiar case of robbery was committed
In South Omaha lust Wednesday. Patrick
Lopan, locally known as "Paddy," was
held up liy four men and robbed of $10.50,
but ho made no complaint to the police and
did not tell any of his friends until yes
terday. When they learned of it they ad
vised him to see the police. This he did
and it was the first knowledge the depart
ment had of the crime. He declared that
he hnd been hold up by four men, must of
whom appeared to lie young fellows. This
occurred In Albright. From the descrip
tion the police were able to locate John
Karnes. Jr., who lives at 2110 Polk street.
Kurnes did not hesitate to confess the
crime, but said tho money wus paid back,
and sure enough when the officers notified
Logan of the arrest of Karnes It was found
that he had received the money. Then he
expressed un unwillingness to push the
prosecution. Karnes said he had borrowed
the money from his mother to pay buck
what he had taken. He also said that his
brother and two neighbor boys had been
in the crowd that committed the robbery.
Now the police are talking of arresting
Logan for compromising the crime. They
say he had no right to receive the money
back nor to promise the boys not to file a
complaint,. It Is likely that he did this
through ignorance, for it was appureut
that he did not know how to proceed or
he would have notified the police at once.
If he cannot be induced to file a complaint
and the police do not arrest him, then tho
only way to bring the boys to trial will
be for tho chief of police to file the com
plaint himself. Karnes Is a young fellow
of good physical appearance, not unlike
O'Hearn and his companions as to age and
position. He comes from n family of sev
eral years residence In Albright and which
Is known an law abiding. At 10 o'clock last
night the second brother, Frank Karnes,
was also placed under arrest. The names
of the others ure known to the police, and
it is likely they also will be brought to
answer for the crime. No charges have as
yet been entered against the boys except
that of suspicion. Logan is said to be a
new arrival In this country.
Democrats Mix .Medicine.
At the scunccs of the political gossipcis
little has developed during the past week.
Since the little Hurry just prior to" the re
vision of registration February 10, the
democrats have been silent for the most
part. Thomas Geary, one . of the demo
cratic candidates for treasurer, has with
drawn from the race. It Is said thut the
move has its origin among the friends of
Mr. Brennan. One other democrat, a coni-
miteeman, is said to have resigned. This
Is J. J. Gushing, in the Second precinct of
the Sixth ward.
There was a rally of the party Friday
night at Evans' hall, where all the candi
dates except three, namely, Martin, Paik
hurst and Queenan. were present. This
was called especially as a candidates' meet
ing and for the purpose Of coming to some
understanding. It Is said that plenty of'
oil was poured on the troubled water and
It was a most harmonious .meeting. The
candidates one and all agreed to stick to
the men nominated, as all declared they
had ever done In the jiai:t; a remark that
a bystendcr designated a?. The most un-
qualilled pipe dream that ever emanated
from a politician's Imagination." All the
candidates bowed to the party yoke. It
remains to be seen whether the three ab
sent candidates will also express the same
New Republionn CInb.
A new republican club, and the first In
the history ot the Bohemian communities
of the city, was formed last night. Nearly
100 met at the old Koutsky hall at Twen
tieth and S streets and elected a president
a"hd secretury, under the temporary name
of the Bohemian Republican club. The
further election was postponed from the
fact that five or six candidates of the re
publican ticket were present and desired to
be heard. Joseph Sinkule called the meet
ing to order and he was later chosen
secretury. John Kralcek was elected presi
dent. Mr. Sinkule made a splendid speech
In favor of the organization as did Frank
Medura. editor of the Polish Western Star.
Then all the candidates were given the
privilege to speak. Swan Larson, William
Mcfraith. W. F. Evans, O. L. Mallen
FTank Dworak and H. C. Murphy were
present and their efforts were given marked
attention. A membership roll was passed
and bove fifty signers secured. There will
be another meeting In one week to perfect
The Lithuanian societies hold their re
publican club meeting this afternoon at 5fil
The Kosciusko club met Friday night. In
stead of the usual Saturday night meeting.
It appears from a transcript of the poll
books, which was made yesterday In the
city clerk's office, that the socialists now
number sixty-four candidates, It Is likely
to cost the city about $5 for placing each
one of these on the ticket.
Two Families la Need
There are at least two families in South
Omaha at the present time who are In ties
perate circumstances. One of the families
Is that of Mrs. Lucy Curtis, living on West
F street. She has been receiving some aid
from the county, but for sdme reason her
pittance was stopped in the matter of the
coal. During the last severe cold she was
obliged to borrow. The second Is the case
of Mrs. Conrad and her sick daughter, who
live in the hollow between H and J streets
and between Twenty-fifth and Twenty-
sixth streets. Mrs. Conrad has been almost
helpless from an accident some years ago.
She at o.ie time sued the city for the In-
Jury, but did not succeed tn getting any
thing that would support her. Of the J10O
It Is said tho attorneys' feea consumed the
greater amount. At present her daughter
is sick In bed and It Is likely that an in
vestlgatlon would show that lack of suit
able food and clothing has much to do
with her Illness. Some private parties
have done a little toward relief.
Rendered I neonselons by Fall.
Ixiu Foley, a son of Remmy Foley, Sev
enteenth and K streets, was rendered un
conscious by a fall yesterday afternoon.
He had been out coasting with a number
of his boy friends nnd while trying to
slide down n steep place on his shoes fell
and his head struck on a stake which had
been driven by a surveyor. At first It was
'thought the boy was seriously hurt and he
was carried to his home by the boys who
were with him. Here he was attended by
Dr. Kelly. In the course of about two
hours he regained consciousness. By even
ing ho was much Improved and may lie
able to be out this morning.
Election Booth Rented.
The mayor has perfected the contracts
with the owners of the voting booths for
the use of their buildings or rooms for
the coming primary election and the lust
revision of registration and lastly for
the general election. The totol cost will
be for each booth. The primary r.;-.d
the election are each $10 and the revi
sion $3. The voting machines are being
stored In the city hall building. It Is
thought the cost of handling the machines
and moving them will be considerably less
this election than formerly. Complete
lists of the poll hooks as they now stand
are being prepared by the city clerk. These
are to be made ready for the use of the
board of revision, which Is to meet again
Marcn .n. a copy of the same is to
go to the chairman of the central com
mittee of each party. With this most
of the ..work required for the oresent In
connection with the elections is finished.
Fridajf the. clerk posted notices of the
primaries and made mention of all offices
to' be 'filled and also named the polling
places in order.

speaker tonight at a banquet at the Union
league club. During his address Speaker
Cannon discussed the fallacy of the people
who would try to shift responsibility in a

Dangers that Threaten the Child's
(From the Chicago Tribune.)
'Health Commissioner Reynolds of Chi
cago, in his latest bulletins l the depart
ment, says that the worst danger to which
the children ot Chicago are now exposed
Is the neglected cold."
It would be unwise for the health com
missioner of a city to recommend any rem
edy for a cold; but should he do so, Cham
berlain's Cough Remedy would certainly
head the list aa the most efficacious for
colds, croup and whooping cough In chil
dren, aa a remedy that can always be de
pended upon to effect a speedy cure and
that Is pleasant and safe to take. TliU
remedy 'contains no opium or other harmful
drug and may be given as confidently to a
baby as to an adult. Its great worth and
merit In the treatment of these diseases has
been attested by many thousands ot mothers.
