Will Ed P. Berryman accede to the
Jims' demand that he resign from the
pa.k board 7
Ed P. Berryman Is far too shrewd a
politician for any Jlmocrat to bullyrag. He
has not dons a thing but placate tha Jims
by offering to Join their belligerent club,
and they, like a whipped regiment, have
snickered and layed down.
Dd P. Berryman. big chief In the camp
of the Jacks, capitulates to the Jims snd
follows his enemy, Frederick H. Cosgrove,
Into the Jim household. Mr. Cosgrove,
for fourteen years a leader of the Jacks,
announced Friday that he intended to
Join the Jims so as to get away from Mr.
Berryman, but his move is of no avail, for
now Mr. Berryman follows his lend and
comes to the Jims, bowing low and pound
ing his head on the floor.
Naturally, the Jims have not renewed
their demand that Mr. Berryman resign
from the Board of Park Commissioners.
Fred Cosgrove laid his defeat In the
campaign for membership on the Omaha
Water board to Ed Berryman, secretary
of the Jacks, claiming that Mr. Berryman
renounced the Jacksonlan slate and laid
the blame on him (Cosgrove). Therefore
he received with favor overtures made by
leading Jims that he forsake the Jacks and
Join them, the Intention being to leave Mr.
Berryman in the other camp. But "the
well-laid plans of mice and men gang aft
That Sweet Mttle Bait.
Ed Berryman, secretary of the Jacks,
conductor of slates for that organisation,
manager of Its excursions and In short
generalissimo of the whole organisation,
writes the president of the Jim club ask
ing that official to let him (Berryman)
do whatever the Jims will. Mr. Berryman
wrote his letter on Friday, addressing It
to Thomas J. Flynn, president of the Dahl
man Democracy. The epistle was quite
lengthy, but one sentence culled from It
tells the whole story:
"I am yours to command if I can do
anything to help along the cause of 'Ne
braska for Bryan.' "
Needless to say, the Berryman letter has
caused excessive jollification among the
Jima and many were the paen of praise
offered up at the meeting Saturday after
noon of the democratic counly central
committee by those who knew of the ca
pitulation of the Jack leader. Mr. Berry
man was not present at the committee
meeting Saturday afternoon1 he Is not a
member, Jims only being allowed on the
committee but he paid a visit to the Jims
Friday afternoon, the first time he was
ever in the Dahlman headquarters. When
Charles E. Fanning, Joseph P. Butler and
other leaders of the great unwashed saw
their hated rival calmly sitting In the Jim
club rooms they nearly fainted away, but
recovered themselves In time to give him
the glad hand and welcome him along
with Mr. Cosgrove.-

The democrats in the committee meeting

the republicans and Instructed Chairman

Upon the motion of George Eterrett, mem
ber from South Omaha, the committee de
cided to try to arrango for n big political
meeting In that city Immediately after the
visit of "this man Taft," as the republican
nominee was called by the South Omaha
member, to Omaha next Thursday. The
committee also decided to hold meetings In
each ward In both cities on Monday even
ing, October 5, the evening before the first
day of registration.
The committee discussed at some length
the appointment of judges of election, U
D. Picksrd stating that they ought to see
to It that the man who Is empowered to
show the uninitiated how to operate the vot
ing machines la a democrat. Chairman
Flynn smoothed this bald statement over,
however, by announcing that he believed
that If a man came to the Judges and told
them that he wanted to vote the straight
republican ticket that the democrats are
good enough citizens to show them how to
pull the republican lever on the machines.
Chairman Flynn appointed the following
members of the executive committee:
George Rogers. George Sterrett. John Pow
ers, John K. Reagan and John A. Rlne.
Mr. Rlne was also Instructed to look after
speakers for the campaign. Tlio first
speaker the democrats will have will be
Senator Goie, the blind senator from Okla
homa, who will address the faithful In
Omaha on Saturday evening, October 3.
Five hundred poster pictures of nryan
have been received by the committee and
these will be posted before Taft day next
Thursday so as to attmpt to show that
Omaha Is for Bryan.
