was lntrndt.ccd by the state to suppoit It
charge that Chief lilt hmond was cognixai,.
of the preenre of the Mabray gang it
Council Bluffs during
J. K. ooper on a4and..
Justice of the Pi-ace J. K. Cooper aiiu
Constable J. C. Paker testified to b. In,
ea h handed IM by Chief Klchmond at tli
Orand hotel. Their testimony as to this
was substantially the aame us contained in
the affldmlts filed at the time application
for the suspension of Chief Ktchmond wa-
made by the attorney general, but refused
by JuilB- Wlreeler. lloth witnesses were
emphatic In their statements that no sug
gestion had lieeti made by Chief Richmond
that the money was intended to Influence
or bribe them In any manner. He merely
stated that he had been asked by a cer
tain person to hand them the money. The
croes-exa initiation by Attorney Tinley In
dicated that the defense will show that
this money came fiom Thomas Ratcliff,
formerly part owner of one of the gambling
houses in this city, with whom Justice
Cooper was well acquainted. The prose
cution's line of examination of these two
witnesses indicated that it wanted to Inti
mate that the money came from John C.
Captain Chafer cf the polite force was
put through a grilling examination as to
the system of arresting women of the town,
forcing them to pay fines, etc. He waa
also closely questioned as to his knowledge
of the operations of the Mabray gang
Beyond street rumors which had reached
his ears the witness had been unaware, be
said, of the operations of the gang.
Money for Slot Machine.
Henry Koark, a stationary engineer living
at 2415 Avenue F, testified to, as he alleged,
' paying Chief Richmond $15 for the return
of a slot machine which had been taken by
i the police from the Ogdcn hotel. The wlt-
ness was working at the hotel at the time,
j It Is understood that Charles Kimball, pro-
prietor of the hotel and brother of City
Solicitor Kimball, has made an affidavit
refuting the testimony of this witness and
will so testify In proper time.
Postoffice Inspector Swenson was on the
stand for a considerable time during the
afternoon and told of his first getting a
clew to the operations of the Mabray gang
and his subsequent work on the case. He
admitted that he had not spoken to the
chief about it and in explanation said lie
"had not thought It safe to do so." The
letters which had fallen Into the possession
of the postoffice authorities led them, the
witness said, to suspect that the local offi
cials, county and city, were not disposed
to interfere with the swindlers. Much ot
Mr. Sweimun't testimony was similar to
what he gave at the trial of Mabray and
his associates In the federal court recently.
Hev. J. W. Jones, Rev. J. M. Williams and
Rev. George A. Ray, members of the
Ministerial association, testified to what
they considered the lack of enforcement of
me lurfew ordinance by the chief of police
a:id his officers.
Stolen Letters Recovered.
The letters taken from a mall pouch,
which was stolen from a truck at the
Union Pacific transfer depot Monday night,
were found yesterday morning In the yards
of the Northwestern railroad near the
roundhouse. All 'of the lettersthad, been
cut open and rifled. The pouch contained
ordinary mail and not registered matter
so the postal authorities do not believe
the thief or thieves secured much booty,
If any. I'p to lat evening the stolen pouch
had not been recovered.
The pouch was one made up on Rock
Island train No. 1? and was to be trans
ferred to the Rurltngton for Kansas City.
The Roc-k Island train was too late to make
regular cannectlons and the pouch was
placed on a truck with others to be sent
forward at 11 p. m. It was missed at 11
o'clock and must have been taken from
he truck some time between 8 o'clock and

JUCKRAKINO TACTICS ARE BAD
"millions nbt to He 4 oasidered

Democratic t amp.
"Insofar a the so-called Insurgents fight
r.T what they cnll a print iple, no other
icpuhliran can object." said Thomas W.
Blackburn. Just bffoie his departure for
Los Angeles, "but when they Insist upon
destroying Individual republican leaders by
malicious personal attacks through the
press and public speeches, they are play
IriK directly Into the hands of the enemy
and ought to be criticised by their fellow

unless the Individual leaders by base be
traynls of party and people are no longer
entitled to partisan or public confidence.
"It Is the muckraking tactics resorted to
in the case of Joseph G. Cannon, for In
stance, which disgusts thoughtful repub
licans. 1 have no desire to see Mr. Cannon
re-elected speaker because four terms In
tl at high position is enough, and because
the interests of the republican party are
more Impoitant that the ambition of any
leader or the vindication of any individual
"But I think the republicans of Nebraska,
and especially the young republicans.,
ought to consider some established facts
In relation to present conditions in Wash
ington before they permit themselves to be
carried bodily Into the democratic camp,
either as active democratic voters or so
cailed insurgents. It matters little what
may happen to the republican candidates
for congress In this country next fall, con
sidered individually. The election of a
democratic congress Is another proposition.
Such a result would be notice that the
PHrty has lost the confidence of the people,
and that the republican administration and
its policies are to be changed. The people
may properly vote such a want of confi
dence and elect a democratic congress, but
it should not be the result of a campaign
of malicious misrepresentation, and for that
reason I would like to make a few sugges
tions for the consideration of republicans.
"Joseph G. Cannon is "3 years old; for
thirty-five years lie has been in congress.
Twenty-five years ago Speaker Carlisle
named him as one of the republican mem-1
bers of the committee on rules. His asso
ciate republican was Thomas B. Reed of
Maine. When the republicans returned to
power, Speaker Reed. Joseph G. Cannon
and William McKinlcy constituted the re
publican membership of this Important
committee. Kor fifty years the speaker has
bedi a member of that committee. After
the adoption of the Reed rules the demo
crats swung back into power, partly be
cause Reed was called "cxar," but chiefly
because of the McKinlcy tariff. In lisSi,
and Crisp of Georgia, as speaker, continued
Reed and Cannon on that committee on
rules and the Reed rules, without essential
modification, were adopted by the demo
crats. The "Cannon rules" are the same
rules and the American congress has been
governed by them continuously now for
about twenty years.
Cannon 1'nanlmon Choice.
"When Joseph G. Cannon was chosen
speaker, he had been thirty years before
the American people as a member of con
gress. He was the natural, the unanimous
choice of his fellow partisan ay the suc
cessor of Speaker Henderson. He was
twice re-elected, and at the end of five
years' service, two years ago the house re
solved Itself Into a Joint caucus, with Hay
of Virginia In the chair, and with laudatory
speeches from both sides, the chamber pre
sented Mr. Cannon with a valuable token
of an esteem which was then well nigh
unanimous. It would have been fortunate,
Indeed, for "Uncle Joe" If he had then re
tired from the speakership, with the words
of these democratic leader, John Sharpe
Williams of Mississippi, ringing with praise
for his ability, sturdy honesty and remark
able common sense.
"Why then this sudden outbreak against
the man who throughout a long and always
active public career, had previously held
tho confidence of associates and the na
tion? It should not be forgotten that in
tiio late presidential campaign Cannon
made notible public addresses, and was
a favorite everywhere.
"Less than two years ago the newspapers
of the country united In a cry for free
wood pulp. Spea tr Cannon said he did
not favor tinkering with the tralff in de
tail, but thought the wood pulp schedule
should wait for the promised general re
vision, and there and then gnve offense to
the public press, which has succeeded in
destroying a reputation of which ony man
would be proud. Then again some enthu
siastic "reformers." notably Colliers," de
manded an extension of the forest reserve
idea to the Appalachian forests, and here
again the speaker suggested delay. He
said he thought before the government
committed Itself it would be wise to find
out what the present owners of the pro
posed reserves would ask fo their land.
The third causa of the malevolent erup
tion of abuse of Cannon, was the changes
made In the personnel of certain commit
tees. The speaker In the exercise of a
power three times given him, had on oc
casions offended congressmen by falling
to assign thera to the committees desired,
and eight or ten out of 31 members of
that body were personally hostile. Fowler
of New Jersey, Norris of Nebraska, and
Cooper of Wisconsin wer three of these.
Aliraya la the Hht.
, "The magazine writers snd some of the
other insurgents belittle the achievements
and ability of Speaker Cannon, but when
we remember that he was In the forefront
of every form of fight, as the Immediate
lieutenant of Reed arid McKlnley, and that
his career was not evanescent, but ran
through the democratic congress, presided
over by Carlisle, Wilson and Crisp, I think
it may be conceeded that Mr. Cannon is
a man of distinguished ability. Hi, per
sonal honesty has never been assailed ex
cept In mudslinglng Invective. Ills pre,
tnco on tiie commute of appropriation',
and in the chair has admittedly saved
th country not less than t"i00,000,000.
"Thit e does not arbitrarily prevent
en. pressmen from intiodc.cing resolutions
at d otherwise obtaining the floor, notwith
standing the extravagant charges of in
tolierance and arrogance. Is made plain
to Nehthskaiis. becat.te Judge Nor-ls was
recognised and offered the resolution to
change the committeo on rules, ajid Q. M.
Mitchcock tfets up some sort of political
resolution once or twice a month.
"I am not discussing the merit of the
rulers, though 1 fancy th next congress,
if democratic will not greatly modify
them. Mr. Cannon did not make th rules.
I am objecting to the cap-goat method
of th Insurgent. They all know Cannon
and most of them love him personally, as
do his democratic associates Io congress.
It is nean and contemptible to pretend
that Joseph G. Cannon is all that is wicked
and bad In A met lean politic, and to Join
l.snds with tho .iIiiiib sltr.gers of that por
tion of Ihe pres. engaged In maligning him
to destroy 1. 1.. Influence and reputation.
Again 1 gram that th I'ayn Urlff is
not ntlnfactory. It is unsatisfactory to
ncijbly. So was th McKinlcy bill. Th
Wilson democratic tariff was so bad that
Cleveland would not sign It and as so
serious a blunder that th I'lngley tariff
took Its place within thtee years The
IMngley bill was criticised most bitterly
during all Its life. A tariff bill Is a se
cession of compromises and alwavs will be
so until we create a tariff commission
which shall be Independent of the local in
terests which now dictate the schedules.
With the members of congress who voted
against the Payne tariff 1 have r.ft uuarrrt.
They executed their royal privilege and
have no one to answer fo for their votes
exceptlug their constituents and their con
science, but the Payne tariff has been en
acted into law and no on thinks it desir
able to enter Into a new tariff campaign
brfoi the Ink has fairly dried upon the
present schedules. It Is tolly to permit
democrats to drag us off our equilibrium
upon the trumped up suggestion that we
did or did not revise the tariff downward.
Just stop and reflect. To enact any tariff
law we must narmonize the Interests of a
majority of the congressional districts and
a majority of the states as they are repre
sented in congress. We cannot pre'end to
enact a luw which will be wholly opposed
by political economists, publicists or Chau
tauqua speakers. We are very lucky when
we manage to have a majority aree to
vote for it.
Tariff ot for Revenne Only.
"Practical man that he is. President
Taft knows this. Everybody else ought to
know It, and the insurgent senators who
are still growling about it know that If
every' single amendment to the schedules
proposed by them had been adopted It
would not have relieved the schedules of
criticism. A republican tariff Is enacted
not for revenue only, but for a measure of
protection and must be adjusted to produce
revenue. The Payne tariff is producing the
revenue. H it the first tariff In forty years
which was adopted without Injury to busi
ness. The wisdom of the measure as a
whole can only be determined after it has
been In force for two or more years. Give
it the benefit of the doubt until we can see
"President Tsft entered upon his duties
with the universal good will of the Ameri
can people. He was praised for every
utterance In his Inaugural address. When
he took a hand In the tariff legislation he
was again lauded and encouraged. His
Judicial sense and his calm good humor
pleased the nation.
"All at once there was a change of pub
lic demeanor. It was not due to the
Winona speech. It did not follow the
signing of the tariff law. His appointments
and the removal of Plnehot were not re
sponsible. The president did not profit by
the wood pulp experience of the speaker of
the house. In a message to congress
President Taft stated that the deficiency
In the postal service was due to the rates
charged for carrying newspapers and maga
zines through the malls. He recommended
that the rate be advanced to something
near the cost of performing the service
and suggested that such an advance would
save the service something like IS3.000.000
"The public press of the country pun
ished Speaker Cannon for venturing to op
pose free wood pulp. The same press Is
now punishing President Taft for proposing
to make the publishers pay something near
the actual expense of transporting their
publications through the malls.
"The last two sentences are well worth
reflecting upon. Reputation in an asset of
great Importance to a public man. The
press of America Is a ruthless destroyer of
reputation. The people in the long run
reach wise conclusions, tiut they are some
times-stampeded by the prims 'and maga
zines. Unless the republican newspapers
wake up and Inform the people correctly on
the pretended issues of the immediate
campaign the next congress Will lie demo
cratic, the admniBtratlon will be hampered
and the country plunged into the doubt in
cident to a proposed radical change in gov
HUNDREDS PAY TRIBUTE
AT JOHN ROSICKY FUNERAL
Services for Serial of Prominent
Omaha Bohemian Held Yesterday
Were Largely Attended.
Several hundred persons, among whom
were a number of distinguished men of
the city and state, packed the Bohemian
Turned hall at the funeral of John Roslcky
The services opened Impressively at 3
o'clock, with an oration in Bohemian by
L. J. Palda ot .Cedar Rapids, la. Mr.
Palda had been a life long friend of Mr.
Roslcky, the tao having known each other
since they were school children in their
native land. F. Fuchs, editor of Amerlka,
the Bohemian perodical of which Mr.
Roslcky had been publisher, followed with
an address over the bier. In his address
in Kngllsh, Councilman Louis Berks ex
pressed the deep respect felt for the de
ceased. Mr. Berka, with references to
the accomplishment of the deceased
Bohemian, told how he had stood out
as a figure in Omaha and Nebraska.
The active pall-bearers, chosen from the
various groups of local Bohemian Turners
were: Joseph Mlk. iJr. Frank Jellen,
Anton Hudecek. V. Sebek and Adam
Sloup. The honorary pall-bearers were:
John Slelger, Charles Bartos, V. Kucha.

shields of splendid sise and design, formed
the setting for the occasion.
The Quartet K ra, a Bohemian chorus of
male voices, and an orchestra of five musi
cians had their part In the ceremony.
With the clese of the orations, the as
semblage was formed Into a line and per
mitted to pass round the bier for a last
view of the dead. The funeral procession

ROW OVER AN INTERVIEW
Members of Board Object to State
ments Made by Karbach.
MAYOR DAHLMAN TAKES A HAND
Commissioner lloyr Marts the Kna
Hrriiir of Accusation that lie mm
Influenced Ii. Appointment
Commissioner Kathach was the stormy
petrel of the l-'iie and Polite board last
night and btfoie the storm which radiated
frm him as the cenui passed to other"
regions there was an Interchange of exple
tives that are not heard in polite society.
It all arose, according to Commissioner
Hove, out of an Interview given out by
Commissioner Karbach criticising tht
board in appointing Thomas Casey a senior
captain of the fire d parlnient and J. H.
Hetigeti a Junior captain. Commissioner
lloye said he thought the board as a body
should take cognizance of the Interview,
and he deflated that insofar as it stated
I tl at he was influenced by politics In niak-j
ing any appointment it was a misstatement
ti.f the facts. He asked Commissioner Kar
j bach if he persisted in his statement.
I Karbach declared that he did. and Ir. 1
Justification said that Commissioner lloye
had said he thought the south side should
have representation and that the taxppyers
in that part of the city were complaining I
Commissioner Hoe denied this, and'
added that he had never deceived the ,
board at to his friendship for Casey, "it i
was. however," he announced with em
phasis, "a mere matter of personal regard ;
Casey and 1 have known one another fori
years and I thought he should get the pro
Wappleb t orroborates lloye.
Commissioner Wnpplch corroborated Com
mit sloner lloye and conim"tited on the fact
that members should discuss what oc
curred in executive session. Mayor l"ahT
man took up this phase of the discussion
and Indicated his own feelings as to what
considerations should Influence him and
the board in making appointments.
"My policy." ho declared, "has been to
select the man 1 think best for the position.
no matter what the recommendations oi
the chiefs of the fire "and police depart
ments msy be. Of course, we pay atten
tion to their recommendations, but we
should pass ourselves upon the fitness of
As to executive sessions, he agreed with
Commissioner Wappich that what took
place there should be considered private.
"I would rather have the doings of the
board altogether in public so far as I am
personally concerned," he said, "but when
we have executive sessions confidence
should be respected."
Commissioner lloye endorsed this senti
men and added: "Doesn't everyone know
the fight I made when member of the
council to have everything public?"
Plament of Imagination.
Commissioner Hunter characterized the
statements made by Commissioner Karbach
as a figment of the Imagination. "They
emanated," he said, "from the mind of a
man who thinks that the whole board is
working against him."
Commissioner Karbach repeated that
what he said was true, which drew from
Commissioner Hunter the retort that surely
the four other members of the board Could
not be wrong. "I want It to be understood,
first, last and all the time." he continued,
"that I am not Influenced by politics in
doing anything on. this board." and with
this declaration of faith. In which all the
other members of the board with the ex
ception of Commissioner Karbach agreed,
the Incident closed. There was fire in the
discussion, but It was only evident now
and again by the expletive sparks, and the
net result of all the pother is that the ma
jority of the board feels that what is done
In executive session should be shrouded in
the camera cloak, and that If this honor of
secrecy is to be abused executive sessions
should be abolished altogether. "But what
I complain most of," said Commissioner
lloye, "is that what we did In executive
session was not truthfully told."
