.We may tolerate social vice, but we must
.enforce decency in the public highways
and suppress resorts that are the hot
beds of crime. We must recognise the
'right of law-abiding citisens to the ex

Upon that platform I feel sure that Hen

deflned tonight the position he proposes to
occupy. He will see to It that all Inde
cency and disorder is banished from
Omaha, and professional crooks and pro
fessional thies of every description shall
be kept out of the city. It will not be pos
sible for him to search the Inner recesses
of every man's domicile to find out
whether he Is playing a game of cards at

beer or wine In his own home or In a ho

Relief of Exposition.
This city has, of course, been a wide-open
town for many years, because we had an
exposition here in 1X98 which brought In a
great deal of material that Was undcslr
able. Gradually but surely this class has
been crowded out. Occasionally we have
Criminal assaults and highway robberies,
Just the same as other cities of equal or
larger population. Within the last four or
five days New Tork City, which maintains
J 2.000 policemen, was the scene of a kid
naping case. Highway robberies and mur
dors have pecurred in old and orderly
towns of Massachusetts and other parts of
New England. There seems to be a spirit
of deviltry abroad in the land, and, in my
Judgment, it is largely due to the pub
Ucity that Is given by yellow Journals to
crime and scandal. These things are made
So glaring and prominent that young men
and young women and even older persons
are taken with the mania. It is in the air,
an J it Is no doubt a good deal of the In
xplration comes from that source. If you
hud multiplied the circulation of the New
Turk Police Gazette In this country and
Circulated It in every household, you cer
tainly could not have expected anything
else than a run of crime and vice. The
same effect has been brought about under
a, different name. The atmosphere of
merles, has been no i finned bv the yellow
Journalism to even a greater extent. You
see lurid pictures of crime wherever you
ffc. Tou see them on the stage, and thou
sands of people go to the theaters and
bear a repetition of ' these criminal acts
and see them before them. It goes through
their minds and they are imbued with It,
and that Is one of the reasons for the de
moralisation permeating American cities.
What Broatchlsnt Meaas.
"The wide open candidate for mayor, Mr.
V itllam J. Broatch, who has established
Headquarters In a former gambling room
It): his campaigning In the saloons, makes
It his boast that he proposes to let every
body run wide open regardless of the law.
It he is successful you may prepare for
a' continuation of the crusade for the next
three years and Omaha will be agitated
from center to circumference with neighbor
arrayed against neighbor and vice and
crime will be rampart In the lower end
of the elty. It la amaxlng that a man
who Is a member of the police commission
should boldly advocate and encourage law
lessness and vlclousness.

the police commission knows thst a resort
Is patronised altogether by the .vicious o
all clnasea nnd colors, its plain duty
to refuse to grant the llcenxe. It should
not compel any rltlsen to come in and
Cfmplaln because complaint necessarily
implies knowledge of the fact, for few
people want to say that they have been
visiting such resorts and mingling with
It Is a matter of general notoriety, how
ever, that a doi, n such resorts are In full
blast in the Third ward. Two of these
are conducted for the especial benefit of
the colored people. When I called the at
tentlon of one of the police commissioners
recently to the horrible condition of the
Midway, he said: "The negroes have got
to have saloons as well as the white folks
They cannot get along without liquor
and why shouldn't they have a saloon for
themselves." I said, I do not see any
reason why they should not. Negroes have
exactly the same right to drink liquor as
other people, but Is it necessary to plant
a negro saloon In the very heart of the
burnt district? Is it necessary that the
worst characters of white men and women
should congregate in these places and In
dulge In all the criminal vices of the cat
endar? Is it necessary that our police
court should he kept busy day In and day
out with lawbreakers who congregate in
these places? If negro saloons must be
had, why should they not be located !n
another part of the city? I It necessary
to maintain hell-holes In the Third ward
black and white, where all the criminal
vices are exhibited in their moat repulsive
Llajanr and Social Evil.
Concede that social vice Is to be tol
erated. Why should we permit the liquor
traffic In conjunction with it? They sav
that we cannot separate the liquor traffic
from the social evil. There is no truth
In that, however. It can be done and
haa been done and la being done In other
cities. There Is no reason why the liquor
traffic should be licensed in the pro
scribed district. The answer has been
"We are told that we must have mouse
traps. We must have places where the
police will know that crooks and foot
pads who come to Omaha will surely con
gregate so that they can keep their eye
on them and catch them In the mouse
trap better than In. any other plaoe,
Welt, I am against mouse traps alto
gether, and If I had my way Mayor Moores
would have suppressed those mouse traps
long ago. The next mayor of Omaha
should be committed against mouse traps.
There will be no trouble then about catch
lng those fellows that come here to hold
up people. When any of these crooks
come from another place or locality, the
very first thing they go to Is the saloon
In the district. There they nnd out who
would go their ball In case they got into
trouble, then they fix up their pull aad
begin, to operate on the people.
Broalch asisl His Reeord.
I presume you want m to give you a
few other reasons . why I believe Mr.
Broatch ought not to be nominated or
elected mayor. Mr. Broatch served th
people of Omaha so badly that they do
not want him again. The first time be
came In on his good behavior, hut when
he' got there the people did not want him
again. He had violated more pledges or
rather had more unredeemed pledges than
all the pawnshops in town. (Laughter.) He
had pledged everything and kept faith with
nobody, He is pursuing the same course
Ten year ro he managed to work him
self back on the anti-Catholic wave. The
A. P. A's. were bound to banish the Cath
olics, from public office And In that war
he got In.' Whether he waa really elected
or not I never yet have been satisfied.
His second term, like his nrst, was dls
tlnguished by a breach of faith with his
constituent. His last act aa mayor dur
ing the nrst term was to order a Judgment
confessed against the city for a gas claim
that amounted to 146.000 and costs, which
could have been defeated readily in the
courts. . He closed his second term by
signing an electric light contract between
two days at jtn exorbitant price.

RED HOT TIMES AT "REPUBLICAN" MEETING
Heelers from All Over Tawa Gather
la Twelfth Ward aad Ra
Thlasa at Tea tared
Led by W. J. Broatch. the primitive In
stlncts of man dominated an alleged mee
lng of the Twelfth Ward Republican club
which waa In reality a cosmopolitan asscm
bly .from various wards In the city, In
low-celllnged storeroom at Thirtieth and
Bpauldlng streets FYiday. About one
third of the voters foregathered were col
ored. At times the session bordered on h
verge of a riot. After Broatch and several
allied candidates had been endorsed by
high-sounding and properly prepared Yes
olutlons. City Clerk Elbourn showed up the
true character of the ensemble by demand
lng a count of noses of genuine Twelfth
ward residents. About half of those pres
ent responded by trotting to the rear end
of the room.
From a purely spectacular standpoint the
meeting was Immense. As a deal in prac
ticai politics It was a beautiful object les
" oo iar as tne Hrostch machine was
concerned everything moved auspiciously
until it came to endorsing the candidacy of
w. h. Hoffman, who ts running for coun
cllman In the Third ward. It seemed that
a printer had Inadvertently left the union
label off some of the candidate's cards, so
he said, which he had been so unfortunate
as to distribute.
Hoffman Declares tha flat form
A union man mentioned the fact and it
almost started a rough house and term!
nated In a parliamentary tangle from which
Mr. Hoffman emerged without an endorse
ment. He made a speech, however, and
among other things he said:
"I am one of the so-called saloon-gam
bllng gang and proud of it. We are going
to sweep the town clean, and we lt show
people what the right kind of a city ad
mimstrauon should be. I want to say
right here now that I am for W. J. Broatch
for mayor, flrst. last and all the time.
wish to Ood Tom Dennlson waa mayor,
Dut as he can't be a candidate, I'm for
Broatch. Tom Dennlson Is one of the best
generals and wisest men Omaha haa got. I
want to tell you that I did special work for
Tom Dennlson for three years. I won't telt
you what It waa I did. That wilt go to the
grave with me. But I found out that Tom
Dennlson's word Is as good aa gold and he
helped me in the hour of need.
"We don't, want such men as Benson to
run this town. Benson Is not a Christian
and I can prove it. He may be a church
member, but he Is not a Christian. Tor
that matter, we have too many church
members In Omaha now."
Mr. Hoffman related how he had been
a bartender and a barber and that he
had done no manual labor for some time.
Broatch aad Fontanelle Comblae.
The affair of resistance was the presence
speech and endorsement of Broatch. The
trilogy was handled early In the evening
oerore some of the colored brethren be.
gan to get busy on the floor and dis
organise proceedings. The ball was opened
by Chairman James C. Lindsay announcing
tnat everybody was to get a fair deal.
He then undertook to strike a nice balance
by Introducing alternate Broatch and Fon
tanelle candidates, sometimes striking
combination In one personality, as In. the
case of John N. Westberg, who opened the
talkfest. Westberg was followed bv John
A. Scott of the Fontanelle slate, who
said crime was no more rampant in Omaha
than in other cities, - but he proposed to
Increase the allowances for the police and
Are denartments If nut In tha rniincii nni
explaining how he proposed to expand lim
itations fixed by the legislature.
At the conclusion of Mr. Scott's speech the
mayoralty candidacy of Broatch was pro
posed In a formal resolution. It met with no
opposition and waa adopted viva voce. There
were loud cans for Broatch and several
voices remarked that he was In the fire
engine nouse across tne street. With a
wild yell several patriots rushed over to
the engine house and escorted him to the
hall. While he waa coming, John H. Butler.

drums of his auditors shake and tremble
with a discourse on his reeord as a volun
teer fireman and his remarkably isolated
Independence -of temperament. .
Behold, lie Comes.
Broatch wae hailed with noisy acclaim.
He Immediately noted the presence of a
Bee reporter and called attention to the
Act and asked that his audience, not hold,
the reporter responsible for the accuracy
of the account of the proceedings because
he knew a marvelously active blue pencil
had to be sharpened frequently In The Bee
offce. Continuing, he said:
"I am Quite as well known in one way
as Edward Rosewater Is in another and I
don't mind the compliments he is con
stantly paying me, for I feel he la making
me votes and I hope he will continue pac
He said some cutting things about the
Daily News; said he was not ashamed of
his record; asserted he had served hia
country on the field of battle like his old
friend John Butler, and was again on the
firing line along with Butler.
Jallas (S.) Caesar Cooler.
At this stage of the game Julius 8.
Cooley. bursting with the virtue of his
municipal ownership platform, entered the
hall and there were demands for his pres
ence on the rostrum, but an overwhelming
chorus of "news" caused Chairman Lind
say to refrain. A ready-made endorse
ment of the councllmanlc candidacy of Bob
Houghton waa read and unanimously
adopted and Mr. Houghton made a speech
n which he announced he had been with
'the machine, the antt-machlne and with
he Fontanelle club," but that he was aow
concerned chiefly In Bob Houghton, whom
he had no doubt would fill a council chair
the next, three years.
J. A. Beverley ald It "Impressed and Im
bued him with such a gathering aa thin,"
and spoke tenderly of the education being
administered to the children of the city In
the public schools. There were speeches by
Blnvm Trostler and W. J. Hialop. Westberg
was indorsed for comptroller in consonance
with the Broatch program. Jacob Couns-
man made a talk. So far things were
Ha Place for Bill Elhoara.
Then Chairman Lindsay railed on his
brother Scotsman. Wtlllsm Kennedy, for a
speech. Mr. Kennedy In an arabesque ef
fort proposed the Indorsement of City Clerk
HI bourn for a renomlnatlon. One Spady,
full of Broatch enthusiasm, and another
colored voter loosened vocal chorda about
this point, and in thirteen seconds It waa
obvious that Ihe deck was atacked against
Llboitrn. His Indorsement waa tabled with
a loud thud. The Spady faction announced
that the colored republican club of the
Sixth and Twelfth wards had Indorsed Sam
a re n leaf for city clerk, whereupon W. IL
Hoffman produced a card of Oreenlears and
demanded to know If the colored people
wanted to support a maa who bad Beneoa's
name oa the reverse of his lite rat are. Thla
touched off a ten minutes' display of fire
works, during which Mr. Spady ran affairs
to suit himself. The warfare waa trans
ferred to another Issue by the reading ef a
resolution prepoaing to Indorse Hoffmaa as
a Third ward councllmanlc candidate. Hut

the fun and declared Hoffman no friend of

his label had been left off and his frirnds

but motions, amendments and amendments

asked for a "realoeratlon" and accused the
halrman of all sorts of mean duds. When
he was out of breath he sat down. The
union man who first attacked Huffman was
Elfcaara poses the t.anie.
Psrcelvlnf that the thread of thing had
somehow been snapp-d the Broatch cap
tains tried to adjourn the meeting, but City
Clerk Elbourn, remembering the rate of
the Kennedy resolution, put on the mitts
and made a speech that melted the tar on
the gravel rooi.
Elbourn stood on bis rights as a cllisen
of the Twelfth ward and a member of the
club. He demanded a roll call and said the
room waa packed with rank outsiders, who
not only did not btlonf to the club but did
not live In tha Twelfth. He oiened the
switch aad ran the colored contingent Into
side track and demanded a tally, for tbe
first time a dead silence prevailed. The
patriots aaaerobled seemed to be scared.
At tha suggeaUoa of Klbeurn the Twelfth
arders filed up around the chairmen'
desk and it was shown that many of the
loudest voters had no rlsht to dip In their
Elbourn then, with his hand on the throt
tle, ordered the adjournment postponed
and other candidates permitted to talk.
Mr. Hoffman took advantage of the oc
casion and made the speech, part of which
was quoted. The city clerk followed him,
saying he had not asked or desired an en
dorsement . from such a miorepresentatlve
body; that hi record was clear and the
clonest Investigation would prove he had
been an excellent city clerk. He remarked
that when he wanted an endorsement of his
Twelfth ward friends a hall ten times as
large as that employed would not be big
enough to hold them.
Cooley for Dessert.
Tlie final and concluding feature was the
rush of Judge Cooley around the end and
the accomplishment of a death grip on tne
floor. The Judge let go of his municipal
ownership platform In all Its grandeur and
promised Ta-cent gas and dollar telephones
if he were elected mayor. He recalled bis
distinguished association with Johu M.
Tburstoa and got rid of much orator
such as Is seldom heard nowadays amid
cheers, eat-calle and rude Interruptions.
When the hall was nearly empty and the
tired and serried ranks had drifted Into an
adjoining saloon, Cooley qjit talking.
It waa noted that the chairs used hire
