Without his knowledge, George W. Craig
of the Kats-Cralg Construction company
has been placed In nomination for city engi
neer by a petition circulated acid signed
by abour 100 of his friends "sturday morn
ing. The petition was filed at noon Satur
day with the city clerk.
Mr, Crnig. who lives at 813S North Thirty
third street, was assistant city engineer
under Andrew Rosewater for about ten
years, resigning a few years ago. When
the office was made elective his friends
wanted him to file for the office, but he
persistently refused to do so if Mr. Rose
water would file. Mr. Craig and Mr. Rose-
water were close friends and Mr. Craig
would not consent to enter the race against
his former chief.
When the death cf Mr. Rosewater was
learned Saturday morning, friends of Mr.
Craig circulated six copies of a petition
and in one hour secured about 4U0 slgna
Mr. Craig Is at Forsyth, Mont., and knowa
nothing of the action of his friends or of
the death of Mr. Rosewater.

the party's candidate for city engineer, to
gether with the nomination of four men
for the Board of Fire and Police commls
Bloners. The committee may meet at once
to fill the vacancy caused by Mr. Rose'
There Is yet some doubt In the city
clerk's mind as to whether the nominees
can be placed on the voting machines. Mr,
Butler says he will do as the city legal de
partment advises him, and City Attorney
Burnara says he questions the authority
of placing nominees made In this manner
on the machines. The attorney ay he
has . not looked into this phase of the law
thoroughly and will not give an opinion
until he is more sure of his ground.
The democrats will follow the example
set by the republican committee and will
meet this afternoon to nominate candidates
for city engineer and for the excise board
This meeting will be held In the Pahlman

Characterising the democratlo platform
as 'ridiculous, idiotic and Inane," Harry
B. Zlmman, pointed out to the young men
who attended Friday's meeting of the
"Breen Boosters." the best way of defeat
ing the Jlmocratlc ticket and of redeeming
Omaha. The meeting was held in the Fon
tanels club rooms and was attended by
about 460 young men. Mr. Zlmman went
to it directly from the Jim convention
where he witnessed the preparation of ths
platform of the opposition party.
"The democrats say they believe in munlc
lll ownership of the waterworks system
and declare for' co-operation with the
Water board." said Mr. Zlmman. "but dur
ing this campaign I Intend to ahow a
number of resolutions the democratic city
council passed denouncing this same Water
board and attempting to discredit it en
tirely. But now they say they wish to co
operate. Why haven't Ihey co-operated dur
ing theaJast three years?
"They also decry the social evil snd say
they believe the houses of assignation
should not be In the residence districts.
Well, the mayor la in command of the po
lice force of the city and haa the power
to close these houses. If they are In favor
In the future of segregating these places
or of closing them altogether, why haven't
they done so In the last three years?
"The democrats also declare for tl gas
again. They did that three yeara ago, but
we didn't get the gas that la, the Illumin
Then they claim credit for the 160,000
Mrs, Levi Carter gave this city for the
new park, and they claim credit for sev
eral rtieces of beneficial legislation, when
none would have been passed but for the
seventh vote of the republican councilman;
and they claim credit for the unlveraal
street car transfer when the mayor vetoed
it and we passed it over his veto.
"I tell you that thoae councllmen now,
after three yeara' experience, don't know
whether to vote "aye" or "nay" when the
wish to sustain or override the mayor's
veto. Is It not time we elect a set of coun
cllmen or directors, who know how to ad
minister the city's affairs?"
Mr. Zimman reaffirmed his allegiance to
the party, and, telling his hearers that he
was the first man to congratulate John P.
Breen on his nominator., declared that he
was willing and ready, to do everything
possible to elect the whole republican
ticket "and redeem Omaha from Its un
enviable position In the democratic column."
L. A. Burmester, couucllmanlc nominee
from the Third ward; Fred Schroeder,
counctlmanlc nominee from the Seventh
ward, and the following made short talks:
Cadet Taylor, Martin Sugarman, C. V.
Hlgbee, H. Hobert, Charles Kubat, Beecher

John T. Jepson and Ed Crook.
Music was furnished by the "Breen Boost

A crowded house greeted the speakers at
the Fifth Ward Republican club'a meeting
at Its headquarters, Sherman avenue an-J
Locust streets, Friday night. President
Frank E. Stone acted as chairman of the
meeting. The principal speakers were John
P. Breen, the republican candidate for
mayor, Byron G. Burbank and H. H.
Baldrlge, although a large number of the
republican candidates were present and
made brief addreaaes.
"This Is a republican year," aald Mr.
Breen, "and if we hold up to the registered
vote there la no reason why we should not
reap a aubstantlal and overwhelming vic
tory. T.-.ree years sgo the democracy went
Into power In thia city on the alluring
platform of $1 gaa and home rule, with a
municipal gaa plant as a side issue. They
now admit that the II gas and municipal
gas plant have not yet materialised, while
the home rule promise has also gone glim
mering. But they want you to give them
another three years' lease of power, when
they will make good their promises. We
have had a recent example of their home
rule promises, with personal liberty fea
tures added, in the 8 o'clock closing law."
Mr. Breen spoke further upon the record
of the republican party In fulfilling Its
platform promises and of the efficacy of
the Slocumb law as a liquor selling regu
lation measure, which met all the require
ments of a good law. Ha denied that he
waa s prohibitionist.

He favored the doctrines pronounced by the
republican city platform, wnich he charac

easily understood. Character in the person
of city officials waa more to be desired, he
held, than promises, and that after ail the
greatest platform waa the man or official
who ran discover evils and move on them
and remove them.
Mr. Burbank said: "No law haa any

out In the breaat and activities of an honest
