City Attorney Breen Denounce Secret Meet
ing of Political Candidates.
ADVOCATES BIG PUBLIC GATHERING
Although He 'Undersea' by Fontn-
nellea, Wkt Hold tnr- s.
1 her sessions. He Pays
' They Are Had.
City Attorney Breen lias relieved his
mind on tile subject of secret political
meetings and pow-wows arranged for the
special Interest of candidates or sets of
candidates. Talking out loud Thursday,
he said:
"This campaign Is the damndest thing
I ever saw. Politics seems to have run
to cliques and little bunches and to secret
meetings In cellars and garrets. We have
organisations with every conceivable title
and about every object on earth trying to
take a hand in the campaign. I have no
use for this sort of thing and don't care
whJ knows it.
"When a man gets ouf and becomes
candidate for a party nomination, he ought
to be permitted to talk to the members
of that party. I like to meet my fellow
men irrespective of division within party
lines. I have always thought I was
welcome to go anywhere to what was
called a republican meeting and Insist I
am still entitled to view politics In that
way. I feel a candidate for office should
ssume the great mass of men are striv
ing to elect good men to office and men
who will discharge the duties of the office
for the good of his constituents and not
for the benefit of any political club or
clique. Neither has any the right to own
him or Influence his actions more than
nother. ,
'There seems to be In this campaign as
never before a', sort of closing all oppor
tunity for men who want to go before the
people and be heard, and to shut them oft
by organising on side Issues and cllqulng
together. I believe the meeting should
be thrown open to everybody, except per
haps, club meetings In executive sessions.
That may be permissible possibly under
certain conditions. What 1 most particu
larly dislike is the meetings of voters
where tliey invite nly such candidates as
the leaders of the affair desire present. f
think a large building downtown, the
Auditorium or another, should be rented
and all candidates for mayor asked to pre
sent themselves and address the people
on their policies and 'course of action In
city affairs and let the people see and
size them up man for. man."
The fact that Mr. Breen is a member
of the Fontanelle club, that organization's
endorsee for city attorney gives his re
marks a peculiar piiuancy., The keystone
of the Fontanelle urch has been secrecy
and star chamber sessions. Mr. Breen
protests, however, that he has not been
requested by the - Fontanelle management
to refrain from attending Broatch and
Hennings , meetings as well . as Benson
meetings.
official election ballots, but Assistsnt City
Attorney Herdman anf mher lawyers have
given optnlont that this Inhibition ts value
less. Herdman contends that under the
general election law a citizen wbo wants te
can get on the ballot as an Independent
candidate by presenting a petition signed
by a required number of voters. He is
equally emphatic In saying that no candi
date who submits his name at the Srlmarles
can take advantage of this plan If he Is
defeated, t'nder the Dodge law a candidate
who submits his name at the primaries
must pledge himself to abide by the result.
and this every candidate has done over his
signature.
The friends of Dan Butler have failed
In the effort to Induce Alvln E. Patten to
withdraw from the contest for the demo
cratic city clerkship nomination. Mr. Pat
ten authorizes the statement that he will
continue to be an active candidate for the
place, having filed In good faith and hav
ing no Intentions of withdrawing.
Albert BJoberg, who withdrew his filing
for the same place, has written a letter to
The Bee, denying absolutely that he pulled
out In favor of. Dan Butler and declaring
mat nis sole reasons were because of a
physical condition dlsaUing him from tak
ing an active part In the campaign and
in view of a ruling ynade by the city clerk.
v nat ruling he refers to. he does not
explain. He says, however, that he does
not propose to be made a stepping stone
for person entirely unknown to hlni.

Evidently concluding that If he expected
to be nominated he would have to do more
for his candidacy than through the efforts
of "Billy" Saunders, manager of the Fon
tanelle club campaign. Representative C. J.
Andersen, an endorsee on the slate, held an
organization meeting for his special benefit
in the Eighth ward Wednesday. In Wolff's
hall at Twenty-second and Cuming streets.
and cards announcing the object were is
sued as Invitations to" a select number.
Cigars were part of the attractions. Mr.
Andersen lias Included something of a curi
osity on his campaign cards. He says in
red Ink: "This Is one plank of my platform
gas at 11 per 1,000 cubic feet or less."
How much less gas than 1,000 cubic feet
Mr. Andersen proposes to have sold for. $1
he does not specify. Observers have pointed
out that If the recession Is enough gas
migm oe innatea . to as high as 12 per
thousand In Mr. Andersen's favor.
And now Jim Dahlman conies out as a
"ladles' " Man. In the announcement of
a Joint meeting of Polish societies In his
Interest In Pollbh hall ion the night of
Bt. Patrick's day, Manager George Rogers
says:
"You are requested to bring your friends.
especially ladles, as James C. Dahlman
will be present."
Authentic advices have It that Mr. Dahl
man has on his hands an Insurrection of
the Irish,' who accuse him of having
confused them, the Polish and the signifi
cance of St. Patrick's day. They are said
to be planning a raid on the Poles If proper
amends are not made, ladles or no ladles.

meeting of the Sixth and Twelfth ward
Colored Republican club at Thirtieth and

CoL.toMrs. rink
hamtLynn.Mass.: Dear itrs Pinkham :
" Fov five years I
was troubled with a
htmnr. which ksnt
AflJrchAltfg powing, causing ma
great mental depression. I was unable to at
tend tomy house work, and life became a bur
den to me. I waa confined for days to my bed,
lost my appetite, my courage and all hope.
" I could not bear to think of an operation,
and in my distress 1 tried every remedy which
I thought would be of any use to me, and
reading of the value of Lydia E. Pinkham 's
v egetable Compound to sick women decided
to give it a trial I felt so discouraged that I
bad little hope of recovery, and wheu I began
to feel better, after the second week, thought
it only meant temporary relief; but to my
great 'surprise I found that I kept gaining,
while tbe tumor lessened in size.
" The Compound continued to build np my
general health and the tumor seemed to be
absorbed, until, in seven months, the tumor
was entirely gone and I a well woman. I am
so thankful for my recovery that 1 ask you
to publuh my letter in newspapers, so other
women may know of the wonderful curative
powers of Lydia B. link ham's Vegetable
Compound.1'
When women are troubled with Irreg
ular or painful periods, weaknesa, dis
placement or ulceration of the female
organs, that bearing-down feeling, in

Judge Kennedy Thursday morning
granted a divorce to Henry Wyman from
Alice ntaua Mary wyman. oeversi oin
tlnct charges of cruelty were made In
the petition and supported by depositions
from New York, winere the defendant
still lives. Mr. Wyman alleged that his
wife frequently assaulted him and once
came near chocking him to ' death. On
another occasion he says she drew a re
volver' and threatened to shoot him and
also hit him over the head with the family
Bible. These acts were testined to in.
depositions from Mr. Wyman's' relatives.
One of the deponents explained Mrs. Wy

morning, looked out upon the earth which
was covered with a deep blanket of snow.
Across the street he saw a girl with a
little shawl drawn tightly over her head
and a basket swinging from her left arm.
The basket was covered with a. newspaper
to protect Its contents from the elements.
Ritchie was conjuring up in his mind the
details of the little drama being enacted
before his eyes. The girl . was taking a
basket of provisions to an old woman who
was hungry. The girl was lost to phys
ical sight when she started the long climb
of the stairway which led up to the humble
apartments of the old woman. But pulling
aside, the veil of mortal vision Ritchie
followed the girl with the basket up the
eighteen steps of the stairway, he saw
her open the door and greet the old
woman:
"I have something real nice for you,
granny, said the girl, us she threw back
her shawl, shook the snow off bud then
opened her basket, which revealed a lot
of nice things to eat.--The old woman man
aged to raise herself up, on her pallet of
sorrow and suffering before the girl could
get to her. The girl propped the woman up
with a pillow, spread out on a table the
good things she had brought, and then pre
pared a cup of tea for the old woman.
As the girl looked liked the old woman's
daughter, who had been killed by wolvea
years ago In Sarpy county, the old woman
cried, the tears falling into her cup as she
drank the tea.

SALE OF CIGARS INCREASES
Dae to Prosperity aad Passage of

Cigarettes. "
The number of cigars manufactured in
Omaha shows a large Increase for last year
over the previous year, and this Is ac
counted for In two ways, first by the pros
perity of y people, who an better afford
to smoke cigars, and by the law which
has shut, off the sale of cigarettes. Ac
cording to the manufacturers and deal
ers, the sale of all cigars has increased
Just as fast as the sale of' home made
cigars, and Is taken as a good reflex of
the prosperous condition of the state.
The following is a comparative state
