i.uJui or sii.iy agtma of tha said oi'icc
liunlers' meeting whli n was beid In the
tuoma of the organization known aa the
Commercial ciub In Soutu Omaha U deplore
tlie fact that annexation was btlna; ataied
and la felicitate eves tlie present deplorable
lji.itii.ul cundttlon of South omana. but
n-ore panlcula.-ly aa to their own personal
satisfaction wits the salary they draw or
tha pricea they get for tha material tney
"Honestly, t waa tha beat comedy of
errors ever perpetrated on a long-suffering
public, Modesty preventa me from offering
their names, but reed the account offeraU
by their able penrll-puaiier.
"There were federal officer, dty offlcera
and ecfiool board offlcera. I am advised
that one prominent office-holder tearfully
remarked that his campaign for the posi
tion he holds had cost htm good money and
he would never aubmlt to being pried looae
mithout a f I (lilt. I don't blame him. They
adopted several resolutions, the first one
deploring repeated aaltaUon of the (luna
tion. I would remind them that the present
condition making It possible to aubmlt the
question to a vote of the people waa a
legislative enactment of their own making,
or at least acquiesced In by them, aa a bill
waa offered at tha sama time which would
have been equally beneficial to both el ties
and was apumed by them, they preferring
the present bill. I pretend to say that the
stagnation in bunlneaa which baa been ap
parent to everybody since that time would
not have existed If the Contract offered for
consolidation bad been adopted instead of
the meaaure now existing.
Met ree,?e ta Iadlvldaala,
"Their second resolution refers to 'certain
Individuals' without authority who have
been carrying on negotlatiuna in Uie city of
Omaha endeavoring to have the annexation
"I infer their reference to certain Indi
viduals simply means those not drawing
salarlea or acting aa agenta to supply those
who do draw the salary and I presume they
mean by unwarranted that they who profit
by tha system were not first asked to give
"Their next resolution it-cites that the
businesa and commercial Interests of South
Omaha have expressed Uiemaelvea against
"I would remind them that the only argu
ment aver offered against consolidation
from a businesa man a standpoint baa been
civic pn.te, love of home, and a protest
againat toiling one'a Identity. I agree with
them in this one statement, aa there ia no
other logical anrtitnerrv against the iaeue.
I would remind themi however, that the
bird leaves its nest when it fails to keep
It clean, and to my notion the time has
come when South Omaha can better afford
to lose Its much cherished name than to
continue under the mismanagement being
perpetrated, and particularly by our last
city charter. These changes, and there are
many of them, were written and con
reived pure and simple by the same Indi
viduals whp organized Uie so-called Com
mercial club and who comprised the per
sonnel of the individuals who offered the
felicitation and enthusiasm at the last antl
annesatian meeting, the report of which In
ffcil can be found In the South Omaha
leaia ml tha RriMiat,
"I would suggest to you, thoughtful
reader, that as yon prise tha morals of
your home fireside and children that one
of the moat reprehensible changes made
waa the repeal of that section of the char
ter which formerly provided for the ap
pointment by the governor of the tire and
police commissioners to the preaent condl
l on which now makes this board elective.
Tin oretlcaJly the proposition may look
r'-Kht. but under the present practices in
South Omaha it ta pernicious. If you don't
Wileve it come with ma for aa hour and I
w ;i convince you.
1 'Tha additional enlargment of the ex
V penaa of the city printing of about fs.000
per year surely could not be of any bene
fit to anyone, except It might be to tha one
who conceived It.
"The change which eliminated the Board
of Review for taxation purposes making
the present duties of the tax commissioner
only that of a copyist Is a change that was
not made for the small home owner.
Their next resolution red tee that there
ia not tha least semblance of doubt but
w.iat tha votera would defeat the question.
"Nay, my dear office holder, you are
wrong. I believe that patience has ceased
to be a virtue and I am quite aura that
you know that your protest cornea from
tha fear at loaa af gain, about the aame
feeling; . that cornea over tha man wbo
stands at tha bar af Justice.

"Seriously I am- Inclined to believe there
are a majority of tha good citizens of
South Omaha, who now favor consolidation
under an enactment which would not de
prive South Omaha of any of her present
vested rlghta I furthermore believe that
a majority af ear citizens have coma to
a final conclusion that there la more to
this question than that which pertains only
to tha office holders and supply agenta
"It the reputation of an Individual
amounts to anything, how much mora Is
a dty department on her reputation. Did
you ever stop ta think and consider the
causa for the growth of any city, or the
reason why ana location Is mora valuable
than another. Did It ever occur to you that
Investors either In manufacturers or those
making personal Inveatmenta depend
largely aa tha reputation of the city In
which they Invee.

the consolidation of any interests where
they are Identical is always beneficial Do

E.iltor of The ??. It has ben cirrer.tly
rr.oited that one of the leading office hold
era of Soii-h Omaha haa. in the heat of the
iromer.t. si, id that the people who are in
favor of annexation to Omaha are neither
Ttitied to a fair election or a fair count
on the Tii'stlon. That surely la a funny
i.K-trne for a sworn official representative
if the peipln to advance.
Home of the hottest antl-annexatlonlBts
want to prevent the etrsulatlon of petitions
'ailing; for an election on that queation.
They are scared to death for they know
that the sentiment In South Omaha la
simply overwhelming for annexation and
will carry tremendously If voted on. Our
forefather f jusSt for the right of petition
and it ia a pretty late day In the history of
the world to try to ffevent what the revo
lutionary soldiers fought and died for on
many a battlefield.
.4ome who are opposed to the circulation
f the petition came from countries where
thn right of petition la forhldden. and either
they or their Immediate ancestors came to
thia country to escape the tyranny of such
govemmenta It now comes In poor grace
for them to try to prevent what has been
considered a God-given rght for more than
13B years in thia country, and to try to
Russianlse the free Inatitutiona of America,
