' The democratic party In this city is In
competent, Irrelevant and Immaterial. The
democrats have talked 'home rule so much
that they have forgotten all about the
golden rule, and s number of other good
rules. 1 would rather vote for a man of
honor and ability without a platform than
for a platform wlihoiil a man. The last
administration has been a veto administra
tion of 'nothing doir.s.' "
, These sre a few of the sentiments given
hv the speakers last night 'r, the voters
who crowded the large Crelghton hall at

It will not be by placing the democvallo

In closing," said Mr. Breen. "When I am

science will be my only guide, the welfare
of the city will be my only motive, and
the hand of Douglas will be his own."
Tainted Money for
Mayor Jim Would Turn Cash
Rejected by Bryanites Into
Public Library Purse,
Tainted money holds no terrors for
Mayor Jim. A democratic legislature, un
der the domination of the Peerless Leader,
refused to allow the hard working pro
fessors of the State university to run the
risk of taint by participating in the bene
fits' of the Carnegie pension fund on the
high snd moral grounds that Carnegie's
money carries an Ineffaceable taint aa of
dollars coined from the blood of the toll
ing masses, but to the unterrified cowboy
such things carry no weight.
Dahlman is after Carnegie money, lie
has already been carrying on a corre
spondence looking toward the annexation
of certain sums and last night he sprung
a surprise on the board of directors of the
public library oy turning over to them
letters he hss recently receivpd from rep
resentatives of the plutocratic Scotchman.
What the mayor wants from Carnegie
1 money to build branch libraries In
Omaha-. In reply to thla request he has
received letters ssklr.g for a varied as
sortment of Information In regard to
Omaha, Its population, library facilities snd
kindred data. These letters he turned
over to the library board last night with
the request thai the desired information
be furniahed him.
After the matter had been broached and
the board had caught its breath a motion
waa made and carried to the effect that
the communication be referred to the
executive committee of the board with re
quest tor a report at the next meeting, a

"College Life" wa the subject of an ad-
T6 delivered last night by Prof. Nsthan
Bernstein before Mr. Dennlson s class of
hln cho1 young men.
That there la not enough distinction made
in this country between colleges and uni
veiaitie was one of the point made by
Mr. Bernstein. He says that a college
train a man eor life and not for a living
as universities do. hence the college is the
hotter institution. The college gives the
education necessary to men who will have
to fight and overcome great obstacles In
life. College life Ir.gralns loyalty in a man

yesterdav afternoon and evening hearing
a protest brought by the president of the
Anti-Saloon league of Douglas county
against granting a license to A. H Frye
to operate the bar at the Houlh Omaha

Mr. Thomas sought to prove his position
by placing Kverett Buckingham, A. 11.
Prye and Ralph C'arley on the atand to
show that Frye was the agent of the
fnlon Stock Tarda company. The attor
ney did not succeed In getting satisfactory
evidence from any of these men. Mr.
Buckingham testified that he had leased
the bar to Fry and he was to sell all
the liquors st the Invoice price. The
others supported this statement.
The defendants produced a petition of
forty signers, but Mr. Thomas objected to
many on the ground that tliev had not
been personally ncqualnttj with A. II.
Frye. The boaid overruled these objec
tions. Thomas further objected to cer
tain petitioners because the names had
been added to the petition by pasting
them on the original list. The reason for
this, as contended by the defendanta, wa
that the blank form provided for only
thirty and the applicant wished to have
forty signers. Over thirty of the signets
appeared before the board and swore that
their signatures were genuine and had
been regularly affixed to the petition.
Few of them knew Mr. Frye personally

Reeere Prte for Lambs.
The price paid for Iambs reached the
highest known record yesterday In the
South Omaha market.' . Ten dollars per
hundred straight was paid for a load of
thirty-seven choice spring lambs. The
thirty-seven lambs brought the shipper
over (300 In cash. Such prices are consid
ered remarkable and are caused by light
receipts and urgent demand for gcapd qual
ity of lambs. All grades of lsmbs and
aheep sold high and rapidly yesterday.
In other classes of live stock no greit
change were noted and so excitement pre
vailed. At the end of the fourth month

Mayor and College President Discusi
Prohibition in Chicago Audi- -tori
CHICAGO, May 1. Before an ajdience
which applauded each speuker with gener
osity, the second debate between Mayor
David 8. Rose of Mllwnukeo and Presidant
Samuel Dickie of Albion college, Mich., on
the liquor prohibition question was given
at the Auditorium tonight.
Mayor Rose, In arguing I lie negative of
the proposition that prohibition U right,
said in part: r
"Thinking men recognize prolilb'tlrtn aa
proposed a a.n t-xlremu remedy, wholly
Insufficient and destructive in actual prac
tice, while on the oilier hand they realize
that tha Joint saloon and the dlv menace
society. Now thuy are set-king vome ra
tional middle ground.''
Mayor Rose presented Htaiitl''s fioin
Kanaaa, Maine and other prohibition states
to show that prohibition Is failing Io stop
drunkenness. He said that thr only
churches now in favor of prohibition were
those that fostered intolerance.
Mr. Dickie contended that liquor drinking
shortened life and increased liability to
disease. Of the liquor dealers he said:
"The brand of Cain sms to be upon
them. Th net result of their llfo and Ubor
is to l'wer the moral tone of the com
munity. A few nights ago I went Into a
