OMAHA. Apt II . To the Editor of The
Bee: Be a gentleman, at leapt, and bring
forth your argument, and don t aling mud
and us abusiv language.
New Building t Cost 17.000,000," In the
ffirst column of the first page of The Sun
day Bee. In th second column of lh edl-
! torlul page we find th editor bursting out
with his madness by cursing our present
mayor and member of the legislature
merely because they ar democrats. The
dltor of The Bee evidently find himself
several laps behind wlt!i his candidates In
the present race of the city campaign, and
th democrats with their broncho-busier
in the lead, of course. Is enough to make
any republican editor mad; after failing to
persuade his reader and the voter of
Dougla county last fall to send a repub
lican delegation to Lincoln, and on top of
that, also to fall In the republican city
ticket. It's enough to make any one mad.
and you know It is always the esse when
any one gets angry, he will scold and
curse and swear, and In his anger will
say things of which a man of Intelligence
usually is ashamed of when hi aggrava
tion I over with.
Of course. It Is hard for oir republican
editor to put up an argument against a
democratic candidate for mayor, when
there Is no material on hand for such an
argument, and he la obliged to scour th
country over to tnak a showing after
long search with a eoupl of letter that
say nothing, and to tnak people believe
that such "bosh" a wa added by hint
will convince the voters of our city to vote
for the set of gentlemen that ar on th
rpublkn ticket. Don't you see that the
voters of Douglas county did not want
your candidates for the legislature? And
they permitted themselves to be misrepre
sented Id the lata democratic legisla
ture by a delegation mad up of
"crook, gratters, incompetents, corpora
tlo i cappers, and coarse roustabouts."
Now, weren't you mad when you wrote
that, and don't you see that the people Of
our city recognize In you th loser in the
present city campaign?
You nor the republican candidates need
offer themselves to restore the good nam
of Omaha. Tha democrats began to restore
this nam three years ago, and hav also
made a success In that line and if the re
publicans can let us work thro more year
then the tetoratlon will be complete, and
then the voters of Omaha will have fully
learned that the democratic party fter all
Is the party that with success can boom
and restore th good name of Omaha. In
the three years that "Jim" has held the
whip-hand Omaha' name ha almost been
a byword from one end of the country to
th other. These are your words; good
for you and good for Omaha. Can you con
ceive of betlei i?"ertlsing?
You need not let the pc?! of Omaha
devote time, efforts and money year in m?A
out for cementing friendly relation with
the cltle and town in tributary trade
territory to make Omaha stand for. the bet
in business, art and culture; you need not
urge three efforts If you will let th city
have three more years of prosperity under
a democratic mayor and council, so that
you may have that building boom kept
up, and give you a chance each year and
three years from now to nam the turn of
$7,050,000 In buildings In Omaha; also let u
hav three more year like the last three
were; we aJded to our city's numerous In
dustries and widened It scope aa a market
town. Then we'll need no mors of the
cement you pak of. as th wealth produc
ing farmers will give ua the preference
over all the cities along the Missouri river,
as qualltv and price will talk louder than
works. All this can be accomplished by
having a dtmociatlc cowboy, broncho
Therefore. Mr. FMiror of Th Bee. don't
let the people ee that you re a hard loser.
With kind regard. I am.

mayor, H. H. Baldrtge and numerous can

at Osthoff's hall. S13 North Sixteenth
street. Monday night. The speech of th
candidate for mayor especially created the
greatest enthusiasm among the colored
voter, and at his Introduction he wss
greeted by tumultuous applause, many
standing and waving their hats and hand
kerchiefs, while the Omaha Military band
added music to th demonstration.
Mr. Breen called attention to th demo
cratic promise of three years ago and their
failure to make good on a single one of
them. He recalled to the voter the fact
that the democrats had promised dollar
gas. which had failed to materialise. He
called attention to tha promise of the pres
ervation of the personal liberties of the
people made by the democrats, and found
the answer In the enactment of the S
o'clock closing law.
Desaocrat and ProklMllon.
Mr. Breen read the Interview given out
by Richard L. Metcalfe, in which Mr. Met
calfe (aid the democratic party must stand
for county option in the campaign of two
year hence, and the prophecy of Metcalfe
that the democratic party, nationally,
would be the party of the temperance ad
vocates. He also read from the Metcalfe
Interview the statement that the signing
of the daylight saloon bill would not sat
isfy the advocates of temperance, so, there
fore, the democratic party must advocate
county option, and he predicted, said Mr.
Breen, that the liquor question would be
the Issue in tit coming fight over state
Mr. Breen essured the members ot the
club that the liberties of the people would
be conserved by th republican party. The
democratic party, he said, had proven Itself
absolutely unequalla ihe task. It Was
th republican pay' which enacted the
Blocumb law, back in and kept It
Intact without Important amendment until
the late democratic aggregation assembled
In Lincoln and changed It while promising
to do Just the opposite.
Howard H. Baldrlge gave the voters a
word of encouragement by telling them
the republicans hsd gone Into the campaign
united nd harmonious, while the demo
crats were badly divided and were fighting
among themselves. He called attention In
the broken pledges of the present city sd
mlnlstrstlon, and If the administration
were continued, history would repest It
self and the record of the next three years
would b a story of more broken promises.
Though Mayor Dahlman, he said, mav
have been a good cowboy and had don
his work faithfully on the range, this was
no Indication that he had the ability to
make Omaha a good mayor. The colored
voters of the city should stand by the
republican party's candidates, he said, be

which had stood by the colored man, and

H. J. Plnkett, colored, talked at length
