; At 4 o'clock T. J. Mahoney took the Moor
rand began with a facetious reference to the
. range of Judge McHugh's remarks.
"When Judge McHugh and others Int
. pugn the motives of the Protestants we
. rise to remark that we notice they ure not
.'above- reproach." began Attorney Mahoney.
"You are In the same position," sharply
retorted Commissioner Thomas.
;. "We'll come to that alf," rejoined Mr.
Attorney Muhoney lhn alluded to re
ported opinions said to be entertained by
.the commissioners regarding public senti
ment on the Sunday closing mutter, and an
alleged:' predcllctlon on the part of the
commissioners to maintain a "liberal Inter-,
pretation of the 1hw," to which Commis
sioner Bpratlen said the commissioner
might entertain those opinions privately
and yet not consider them as a police
board. - '
"I have made no charges that the com
missioners "have been servile tools for any
Interests," quoth Mahoney, "but I contend
they have 'acted' with perverted notion of
their duties and I will not charge the cotn
mlsaloners with any tiling more serious
than I think them guilty of. The worst of
the motives of the boa.r8 has been that the
members. have docmod It unwise atrictly to
enforce the Slocumb .law, because they
thought tha people wanted a lax enforce
ment of that law and .they have followed
that policy." 'rt'-
Dr. Miller rose to remark he admitted the
members entertained sunh Ideas person
ally, but hot pfficlnlly. realizing they had
no power to' act in the premises If they
wanted to.
Admitting the police board "has discre
tionary powers Mr. Mahoney contended It
had power to. Issue' orders to the police de
partment and showed by the board's, own
records, which were oil exhibit, that on
June vs. 19"?, : the a commissioners . ordered
the chief of pollt-e to suppress prostitutes

pflshed.' Sir Mahoney. said the board's own
books had many such orders, showing the
board had gnd knew It had complete con

Miller, W. J. nroatch and J. W. Thomas,
constituting the Hoard of Fire and Police
commissioners, severally made personal 1
statements to the governor regarding their
sincerity In office and the beliefs they en
tertained a to what they thought thlr
duties as commissioners were.
Mr. Mahoney then stated he and his as
sociates hnd tried for three years In Omaha
to secure an enforcement of the Blot imb
law and would agree to dismiss the cluirges
then and there If assurance would fce
given that the law would bi enforced bv
the commlHsloners henceforth, but that
assuranoe was not forthcoming.
The governor concluded the hearing by
reading the opinion of the attorney Ken
eral and stating the decision on the case
would be rendered as soon lis he hnd taken
the whole matter under mat-ire advistniert.
Attorney (ienrrsl's Opinion.
Toward the close of the hearing the gov
ernor read an opinion received a few days
ago from Attorney General Norrls Brown
on the duties and powers of the Omaha
fire and police commissioners. After
quoting the law in the matter the attorney
general wrote:
From the foregoing It will be eeen that
the duty of enforcing the law In cities e.f
the metropolitan class Is lodged with the
mayor and police board, of whlcii ;h
mayor is ex-nirielo member. 8uch board
appoints chief of police, who has the
supervision and control of the police forca
of the city, subject to the order of the
mayor and Board of Fire and Police com
missioners. Therefore, If the Isw against
the sale of Intoxicating liquors on Bun. lav
In such citv is not enforced the Board of
Fire and Police commissioners, who are
glvn the authority to direct and super
vise the chief of police and police forre
of the cltv. are re.tnnnsihl fluoh
enforcement of the law on the part cf the '
noarn or r ire ana foitce com.-niHSIiers
would. In my opinion, constitute 'neglect
of duty," and would authorize you to re
move them from office.
That opinion, when read by the governor,
had a visible effect on the police commis
sioners. Member Thomas suggesting to the
governor that he be not guided only by
that opinion, but seek further legal en
lightenment on the subject.
Governor Mickey said he arranged for the
hearing In Omaha for the convenience of
the parties concermd. He left last even
ing for Lincoln. Trom where he will an' I

around the e-ontentlon of "the commission

The hearing was fraught with .several
