THE society any society, in any city is
giving a banquet. The diners have had their
food hurled at them and have hurled it into them.
A long and imposing toast-list has been prepared
and the speakers are at the head table trying
not to appear self-conscious. Cigars are lighted.
' The orchestra is playing The Merry Widow. A
few of the younger set are humming along with
. the tune. The ladies have arrived in the gallery.
The Toastmaster rises, taps with the gavel, glances
around the room and smiles complacently. There
is a great noise of chairs being shifted so every
body can face the head table. The Toastmaster
straightens his tie, pats his shirt bosom and begins.

"When Mr. Bryan sounded thi battle
cry, 'Shall the people rule?" and handed It
on down clear to Colonel Fanning. I really
believed that the people were to rule. Hut
I have dlaeovered thct there Is nothing: In
It The people are not to rule, btt tha
colonels cn the board of strategy are to
do the ruling."
Thla la the aollloquy of Joph Thllllp
Butler, erstwhile candidate for atate oil
Inapector, who haa, at laat, given up the
ghost and become convinced that Arthur
Mullen of O'Neill, who haa been appolnttd
to the position for the second time, will
not for the second time refuse.
Consequently the ''uncrowned king of
the Eighth ward" haa aurrenderert and
will chaie no more after a wll-'o-the-wlp
appointment, but will Instead attend to
his dutlea aa assistant gas commissioner
of the city of Omaha.
But Just because Jce Butler has become
resigned to his fate, It does nt follow
that Joe Hutler Is In a happy frame of
mind and at peace with all men. Far
from. It. Joe Butler Is wroth, he Is angry,
he Is fighting mad.
"Because I thought the people were to
rule I got endorsementa from the people."
aald Mr. Butler, "but I waa never so far
wrong In my life. I used to think I was
something of a politician, but I am not,
aa haa been shown In the way I have
been let down. I got the endorsement of
the people, but I should have got the en
dorsement of the 'big ten,' or, not so much
from the ten as from the three men who
really controlled the, giving out of post
"The men on this powerful sub-board of
three are Colonel E. ParUboard lierryman,
Colonel C. Eldelwelss Funning and George
Campanella Rogers. They are the nvn
who are responsible for my getting turned
down and they are the men who are to
rule. Tom Flynn, the mayor, Lee Bridges
and others on the 'board of control' are,
In the mind of the new governor, accord

John McCreary, one of Omaha's oldest
and best known pioneers, died of paralysis
Thursday morning at Sti Joseph's hospital.
He wa 76 yeara old and since suffering a
first stroke In March, JSo7, had been in
broken and uncertain health. Following a
aecond attack of the disease a week ago
Friday, hla condition became worse and
death released him from this life soon
after o'clock this morning.
An early and prominent member of the
community when Omaha waa yet a strug
gling town, Mr. McCreary led a life that
wa more than usually active and varied.
Real estate Interests occupied his attention
in the later yeara of hi long residence In
the city, but previous- to his retirement
from active business In 1888, he was at dif
ferent times a railroad contractor and con
structor of telegraph lines tn Nebraska and
the great west.
Born In Merrow county, Ohio, Muy 21,
1832. he lived In that seption of the country,
and for a few years In Mississippi, until he
removed to Omaha in 1S58. Since that time
hla home has been here, and of lute years
I he has resided with one of hla sons, C. F.
McCreary, at the latter' home, 2416 Man
derson street. A member of the Catholic
church, he attended St. Phllomena'a cathed
ral and the church of the Sacred Heart.
He was not a memoer of any lodge or
After an extensive exporience in railroad
and telegraph construction work and as u
manufacturer in Ohio, Illinois und lowa.
Including work on the first Ohio railroad,
the Invasion of the west by the Union Pa
cific drew him to Omaha. In 1861 he began
I the building t telegraph lines across toe
plain to Salt Lake City, later was a
"freighter" on the prairies for four years,
i and at one time also ra'lsed broom corn and
manufactured brooms In Douglas county.
Omaha real eBtate and a Wyoming ranch
were gradually acquired by the veteran
citlsen, who at the age of 66 years, twenty
years ago, had a well earned competency
.that at least made active business life un-
I necessary after that time. Energy and
strong business ability were prominent
i traits of the man. However, the panic of
S93 caused him to suffer heavily.
A large family, consisting of six children
and twenty-three grandchildren, survive
Mr. McCreary. There are five sons, James
H., C. F., John A., William W. and Emmet

and one daughter, Mrs. M. O. Daxon ot

WOMAN FOUND DEAD IN BED
Disease la Consumption, bnt Death
May Have Been Dne to
Anna I'mathuin, a roomer In a house at
8lfc Jackson street, was found dead In bed
Thursday morning by Sam Walker, an
other roomer at tho place.
The woman had been .suffering from
consumption for several weeks, but waa
Improved somewhat Wednesday. It is
thought possible she died of morphine or
some other kind of poisoning, as there
are symptoms that death may have been
due to such cause and th woman had
declared that she would rather die than
be taken to the county hospital. She had
had been ordered there by Assistant
County Physician Van Camp, who, with
Health Officer Nielsen, had made several
visits to her room during her sickness.
Thursday tho authorities had Intended to
take her to the county hospital against
her will, but early Thursday morning they
were notified of her death. Coroner Hea
fey took possession of the body and held
an Inquest at 2 o'clock to investigate.
