OUR LETTER BOX.
That F.pwertk Resolatloa.
OMAHA, Aug. 11. -To the Editor of The
Bee: For some time I have been battling
with myself as to the advisability of mak
ing known thst of which the public lias
been erroneously Informed, vis. : the antl
Rneewater resolution which was adopted
at a recent aenibly of the Epworth league.
This resolution In the most, vehement
language denounced, defamed, censured and
condemned Mr. Rosewater as being a most
unfit and Improper person to represent the
state of Nebraska at the nation's capital.
Far be It from me to assume that the gen
tleman In question Is totally lacking In
those Imperfections which constitute world
Uness. But I do assert that n body of
people claiming to believe In a God who
distinguishes not between persons and
Whose highest law is that of love, and
assembled In t fie nsme and through the
grace of Him who tsught us, saying "Love
them that hate ye." and "Judge not that
ye be not Judged," and when so assembled
they become the -prey of a few men who
for purely personal reasons vllllfy and
denounce publicly a fellow cltlxen who had
no chance to ssy a word In his own defence
or In any manner to remove the malicious
slander heaped against him. It la high
time that the world became Informed of
the despicable manner In which the resolu
tion was railroaded through.
It was by no means the voice of the
assembly, hut was a purely personal affair,
prompted by the most ulterior motives, cut
and dried from Its Inception and proposed
at the psychological moment when the
audience wss wrought to an Intense nervous
pitch by the oratorical Dr. Banks, In addi
tion to this, the audience had been sitting
on rough, hard benches for two long hours,
and so when the resolution was proposed
they rose to their feet without seriously
considering the propriety of their action.
Scarcely hd they risen when a unanimous
vote was announced In favor ot adoption.
Fully one-third of those voting did so
without knowing what they voted for or
why they voted. A hurried canvass later
In the evening revealed the fact that hnd
the people been aware that such a resolu
tion was to have been presented not only
would the measure have been fought, but
It would have "been 1 overwhelmingly de
feated. The unutterable nerve with which
these high-handed proceedings were con
ducted was more becoming to the unblush
ing, unprincipled ward heeler than to the
meek and pious follower of the lowly
To the gentlemen concerned who may
take exceptions to my way of presenting
facts to the public I can say that I am
prepared to back up 'my position to the
uttermost, and further, there Is no place
In holy writ which would In the leaet de
fend or even' excuse this utterly Irreligious
action. L. M. HORR.

Thought on Legislative Halls.
OMAHA, Aug. ll.-To the Editor of The
Bee: As the time npproaches when an
other legislature will convene. It may not
be out of order to call the attention of our
state authorities to the condition of tho
legtHlatlve hall when the last legislature
met. It looked as if it had not been
touched since the preceding legislature
adjourned, ft had all the appearance of a
"rough house. T The old. rickety furniture,
pot fit for a secpnd class lodge room, was
covered with dust and rdlrt and the light
was barely visible through the windows.
The- matting -on the,'lkmr "was so well
loaded that It Was dangerous to attempt
to sweep It. That good old clock over the
speaker's desk always ready to move for
ward or backwards aa Occasion required
could hardly tell the time through the dirt
on Its face. It was no Uncommon thing to
see a venerable 'legislator drop through the
eane bottom of his chair, and the old desks
looked as If they had ' served since Ne
braska was admitted to the union. Our
stats officials have lived too long In Lin
coln and other country, (owns. They oaght
to come snd visit the council chamber of
a great metropolitan city like Omaha and
get' some pointers on legislative elegance,
and how to keep- things dean. The lobby
was the only part of the Institution that
wjis In .good repair, and ready for busi
ness. It was - clean and neat and well
led. and decked with flowers and win
ning smiles. , MICHAEL LEE.
