Hal Reed doesn't know what half-way

and "At Cripple Creek" was written when
he had the throttle wide open and no brakes

play might have been called "At Denver"
or "At Gory Gulch," or even "At Podunk."
The name doesn't, hamper . Mr. Reed any
more than do facta. What; he wants la the

knives, a Mexican, an Indian, a 'bad man,

a good littlest girl, with a negro and a

It will stand by democratic principles, as
sist the mayor of Omaha to carry out the

was elected, and become a mighty power
for William j. Bryan for president." Such
Is the gospel as It was proclaimed last
night at the first ' meeting of the club
by such prophets as Mayor Dahlman, Louis
J. Plattl, John E. Reagan, Dan Butler and
other democratic luminaries.
"This organisation Is for the common
man, and we are not even going to aak

In his address to the club. "If the leaders'
ask for membership, they will be admit

would be a powerful . factor for him In
his own state.

General Hitchcock, who has jurisdiction

In salary will follow. The periodical pro
