crowd aa waa at the monster meeting at
Workmen temple Saturday night, yet there
will be a fine crowd out to witness the taut
effort of the winning; candidates before they
give their cause to the people.
The meetings which were held yesterday
ly the Lithuanian at New Settler hall
nd by the people of the Third ward at
Twenty-flrat and C street In the new

and getting stronger every hour. Every
body knowa what we are standing for and
believes we will do what we promise after
we are elected, aa we are going to be,
We have been working hard, too hard to
attack the little slanders which have been
thrown our direction, Nobody believes

Tuesday South Omaha will likely poll the
largest vote In Its hlgtory. The city charter
provides that electors shall have been in
the city for sixty days next precodlng the
election. Anyone who haa been here a lees
number or days will be subject to challenge,
by anyone knowing the circumstances. Sev
eral names are reported registered whose
residence in tlio city has been made a
matter of record, with lens than sixty days,
The police have taken the namesof several
men whose cases will he looked Into.
Those who have failed for any reason to
register in any of the opportunities given
will still have a chance to swear In their
votes. They will be obliged, however, to
appear In person before the city clerk and
l.rlng with them two men of the same
, ward and precinct who have known them
me year, who will vouch for the correct
ness of the statements offered as an excuse
lor not registering.
Gathering; Election Itetnras.
Partial arrangements have been made
with the city clerk concerning the election
returns tomorrow night. Among the In
xtructtons given to the judges Is a blank
form for them to nil out with the unofficial
returns. These will be sent In as soon as
possible after the polls are closed. With
good work the entire ticket should be re
ported at 7:15. It has been arranged with
Mr. Carter to leave a aet of instructions
with the telephone operators that will ma
terially assist In hastening the work: The
public will be excluded from the office of
the oierk, but they will be Invited to make
ue of the council chamber, where prompt
announcements will be made of the returns
hs they come In. ' This will give the crowd
a chance and will not Interfere with the
work of tha tabulators In 4he clerk's office,
Only t hope who' "have assigned duties will
lw allowed In the latter office.. The public
wilt greatly assist the work of the clerk
by refraining from using his telephone
until 7:30. There are three other "phones
In the building which are just aa easy of
corse and a man will be at each to answer
ca.il. The numbers open to those asking
tiuestions are il 90 and MO. After 7 o'clock
tientral, wljl ask this question of thoae who
call No. .194, "Do you wish to send In elec
tion returns?" If the answer Is yea the
' connection will be made; If no, the con
nection will be diverted to one of the other
three numbers. This will keep the wire
to the clerk's office open for the ahort fif
teen minutes necessary to get all the re
turns In. It Is expected that the council
chamber will be rilled to the limit at 7
o'clock, when the polls close.

as a result Barney Cogan, who has a sa

Fifteen men were found In the saloon,
several of them drinking at the bar. The
door waa open both at the back and the

have been trying, to see what was being
done. No attempt waa made at conceal

It may be thought that an attempt was
being made to aee what the attitude of
the Board of Fire and Police Commission
ers waa concerning the question of Sun

recent petition. After going to Jail Cogan
secured bonds for his appearance. It waa
stated at the Jnil that complaints would
be filed this morning charging Cogan with

said he had no gun In his pocket, but
made a strong bluft of drawing one, but
In reality drew only a jrnrpenter's rule.
It worked. In the dark It could not be

thought It better to let them go. They
had been hiding behind a ruined house at
that point, and around IV they disappeared.
Trapp then proceeded to his home, and as
he had lost no money did not report the
case until last night. The officers were
sorry that he did not send In an alarm
at once. Captain Shields and Officer Turfi

Leaving political discussion, Mr. Backus
spoke of the breaking up of a horse steal

pleasure. This gang haa been atealing
horses by the score and had a very clever
way ef getting away with the animals.
Daniel Webster and Bam and Joe Craay

those In custody for doing the work. They
turned the horses over to white men at a
small fraction of their actual value They
were doing huslnesa In a wholesale manner

Minneapolis won the second of the ex

Three double plays were made, two by the

several other fast plays were pulled off

NORRIS DEFENDS HIS BILL
Fifth District Oonereesman Discusses Meaa-
'nre for Popular Election of Senators.
CAMPAIGNS ARE NOW TOO FREQUENT
Provision Uxtendtnav the Terms of
Representatives to loir Year
Will Make Bill Topolar
In the Senate.
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON, D. C, April 1. (Special.)
Judge George Norrls. who represents the
Fifth Nebraska district in congrese, has
broken Into the Inner circles of house legis
lation. He has accomplished this by a
steadfast desire to be right and his straight
forwardness and his ability have given him
a prestige In a body which, although made
up of 3S6 members, together with the dele
gates from the territories, is controlled by
a few Individuals.
Recently Judge Norrls had the honor paid
him of having his bill providing for tho
election of senators by the people and the
extension of the term of representatives
from two to four years, made the basis
for a committee bill. Which has been re
ported favorably from the committee on
election of president, vii'e president 'and
members of congrca and Is now on tho
Norrls Defends His BUI.
In discussing an editorial recently pub
lished In The Bee, taking exception to Judge
Norria' bill, because of the extended term
given to representatives In congress, he
made the following statement:
Yes. I have read the recent editorial In
The Daily Uee in regard to my proposition
now before congress to amend the constitu
tion by providing for the election of sena
tors by the people andjyr the election of
members of the hou.-- fi representatives
lor a term or jour yenrn(
In my Judgment,
tha claim made in the" editorial that the
provision lengthening the term of ofilce of
members of the house will lessen the
chances In the senate of passage of the
provision to elect senatots by the direct
vote of the people, la not well founded. U
Is quite evident to me- that the eltect will
be exactly the reverse. The house has sev
eral times passed resolutions providing for
an amendment of the constitution in the
matter of the election of senators uy me
vote of the people, and in every instance
the provision has failed to pass the senate
by the constitutional majority.
There are senators wno inina ihhi any
proposition to amend the constitution af
fecting the senate ought to originate. In the
senate and not In the house, and there
aeems to be a prejudice in the senate
against any such propoaltion that cornea
from the house, tor years mere un-n
a sort of understanding that any law af
fecting only one branch of congress shoulu
orlKlnate In such branch. And there has
alao been an understanding that any propo
sition so originating wouia receive uivoi
nble consideration In the other branch.
I nder this understanding, at proposition to
amend the constitution affecting the term
of ofilce of members of the house, having
originated In the house'and passed by the
house, would be looked upon with more
favor in the senate. On this aecount, 11
was deemed best to couple the two propo
sitions with the Idea that a proiKiscd
amendment emliodylng both pmpotntiona
would doubtless ba looked upon with
greater favor in the senate. Then again, an
attempt has several times been made, as I
have said, to pass the proposition relating
to tha election of senators, -and In each
Instance such proposition has met wltn
failure. What proof have we that the sen
ate has experienced a change of heart anil
that auch proposition, standing alone, would
receive favorable consideration In the sen
ate? The most Important part of my propo
sition is the part relating tn 11el?,!"
of senatora by the people, and while I be
lieve that more good would result, to tne
country from the adoption of that portl'in
. . C. .u.r. ..intinir to the term of otllce
of members of the house. yetyI am most
heartily In favor of the latter proposition.
I'nder the present law members of the
house are elected In November, and unless
there Is a special session of congress called
by the rresldent, they do not actually begin
their official duties until a year frotn the
following December. Their term of office
la thus practically half gone before the
commence the active duties pertaining to
their office. Before they ai fairly star ed
In the work for which they were elected
they are plunged Into another campalgn
a campaign for venomlnatlon. tfhey wish
"o be returned. Their attention Is thus di
verted from their work-the work In which
they Hhould be engaged, and much of theli
time is devoted to securing a nomination
and a re-election. This is not only unta r
to the congressman, but is likewise unfair
to the pe"Pl ha represents.
Ton Many Elections.
In my Judgment we have too many elec
tions We scarcely get out of one cam
paign before another 1 gin. -We all know
that campaigns, at least so far as tney
affect members of congress and national
questions, always have a depressing in
fluence on business and the prosperity of
the country generally. People contemplat
ing an enlargement of their business or
the investment of money in new I enter
prises alwavs hesitate If a national elec
tion Is approaching until the result is
known. There la always a tightening along
financial lines and neeessarlly along ail
lines of business Just pr.or to a milLonal
election. . ...
It Is unfair to the members of Ihe house
that thev should be put to the expense of
being continually in a raiuiiMlgii. Besides
taking their time and attention from thlr
ottliia-l ilutt'?a the expense connected with
a campaign make an inroad upon his sal
ary until it has heeome common knowledge
that only the wealthy can afford lo retain
a seat til our national legislature. I think
It would be an improvement if we eleeted
all of our state and county officers fur a
term of tour years.
KaTect of Krennenl f nninnlgna.
It Is not only the officeholders who s'muld
be relieved from rws frequent campaigns,
but tho people themselves are tired of this
continual pollt.cal quarrel and strife. In
my Judgment tills has a tendency to cauae
them to loan interest In pullltc matters.
They become tired of this julitical strife
and -are apt to become riist-allahed and
pay no attention to the piiinanea and con
ventiona the foundation of our system.

a large per cent of It that la scnt for Il

spending of money In this way cannot help
but have a depressing and Injurious effect.
The tendency nil over the l'nlted States
has been to lengthen the term of office
of the public servants to four years. If
my proposed amendments were adopted
In my Judgment it would not be long be

of congress hardly becomes acquainted
