With election clay almost at hand, cam
tpalgn managers of the republican and
oemorratlo parties are expressing confl
dence that TetisCay nlphl will see their
run tickets elected. When asked for
statements they aald:
Ren S. Raker, Chairman of the re
publican County Central Committee
Tha ticket Is aa good at elected rlitht
now. The smalle't lead any man on the
ticket possibly can have over hla op
ponenta, In my opinion, la 6.100. That la
lha moat pessimistic prediction I can
make. I will be surprised If every one
doesn't have at leapt 7.000 votee to apare.
Louis J. Piatt!. Chairman of the Dem
ocratic County Central Committee
Thera la nothing to nay only that we are
Bolng to elect our ticket. I won't aay
.According to a prominent Omaha real
state man. realty dealera of the city
generally will vote for William G. Vr
for treasurer at the election next Tues
iay. the reaaon bain that he la the only
candidate . for the place, who really la
competent to handle and direct the
weighty affaire and business of this Im
portant office. "Mr. Ura la an experi
enced business man," ha aald. "He Is
familiar with lha work which would de
volve upon him and thoroughly compe
tent to aolve and dispose of the diversi
fied problems that are sure to present
themselves. Ills business experience has
made him so. M. L. Knilrcs, Mr. ITre'a
opponent, la a man who has had com
paratively no business tialnlng. He runa
a paint and wall paper shop, but even
In thla work the real estate men gener
ally do not consider him capable of hand
ling a really big Job. Hurh limited ex
perience aa ha has had In attempting to
execute large contracts has not been such
aa to Insure confidence. Tha general
opinion among us Is that a man who
cannot make a greater auccesa In the
painting and wall paper business surely
would make a fnllura In an office that de
tnande Infinitely greater ability and In
a Una of work In- which he has had prac
tically no experience."
Confusion among many voters haa re
ulted to a considerable extent from the
fact that three men named Foster are
eeklng election to publlo office at next
Tuesday's general election. Charles K.
Foster Is the republican candidate for
police judge; J. J. Foster, a republican, Is
asking election aa a member of the JJonrd
of Education from tha Ninth ward. Vot
ers aliould take core not to confuse these
men with Dr. Harry A. Foster, th re
publican candidate for member of the
Hoard of Education from the Twelfth
ward, aa they are both thoroughly repu
table and respectable men, standing high
In morality, and Integrity.
Thomas J. Klynn, democratic candidate
tor clerk of the dlatriot court. In a com
munication to The Bee, asks publication
of hla side of tha Bouth. Twenty-first

provement club haa condemned blm. lis
"Let ma give tha people tha facts.
Rome two years ago soma of my men la
cleaning Leavenworth atreet put probably
four or flva loads of atreet cleanings on
Twenty-first street. One property owner,

resolution, claimed to have been adopted,
objected and Informed na he wanted

owners complained about tha condition of
Twenty-first street and asked permission
to permit soma grading contractor to

Idea when they would be able to secure

president of the Central Improvement

It costs In fouth Omaha. This Is true,
but Omaha's property Is taxed for thla

channel. The addition of Bouth Omaha
to Omaha will not cost Bouth Omaha
property owners any more than at present
because the bulk of the taxation la made
on what la now Omaha property. Valua
tions determine taxation.
The antl-annexatlonlsts give figures to
show It conts more to operate the city
hall In Omaha than In Bouth Omaha.
They fall to say, However, that after an
nexation it will not be necessury to spend
tha aum now spent on the city hall of
Houth Omaha, because there will be but
one city hall and one act of city of
ficials. The antl-annexatlonlsts sy It costs

Bouth Omaha Is paying more in pro
portion to population than Is Omaha.
Omaha paya Its teachers a much higher
salary than Bouth Omaha (ays and our
teachers will bo benefited by Increased
salaries If we annex.
Antl-annexatlonlsts say Omaha school
bonded Indebtedness Is much higher than
Houth Omaha. Thla la explained because
Omaha has five times the population of
Bouth Omaha and the but school build
ings In the wrst. Thore Is but one sani
tary school building In South Omaha,
while alt of the school buildings of
Omaha are sanitary throughout. Omaha's
property values Justify the bonded in
debtedness fur schools or It would not
have been mude. 1
Antl-annexatlonlsts explain that coun-
oilmen's salaries of Omaha exceed those
of Bouth Omuha. They full to explain
that there will be no council In Omaha
under the commission form of govern
ment, and even It there were that one
set of councllmett will answer for both
cities. Ihey say the commission form of
government will cost Omaha $32,000 per
year. As it costs Bouth Omaha $S.tM for
Its councilman, if they are done away
with that will make a saving to the two
cities of ft,000 over present expense.
Antl-annexatlonlsti gay It will cost
more to run the fire department of
Omaha than tha entire city government
of Bouth Omaha. They fall to explain
that Omaha works a double shift and
has prober(y value sufficient to raise the
required revenue. They fall to explain

MISSTATEMENT OF FACTS.
Antl-annexationlsts say. that local aa
loonmen will be without license If we
nnex, for a long period, and will have
to lose $-B3 on tbelr license when they
secure a new one. This In playing to the
galleries. It Is no breach of confidence
to say that arrangements have been made
whereby the aaloonmen will be given a
new license after annexation and credited
with the $3.13 In question. The fucta to
prove thla arrangement are In the hand!
of the committee of tha Bouth Omaha
Iletull I.hiuor Dealers' association. Any
lalooniuan can obtain these facta by ask
ing their committee. This disposes of
that matter effectually and satisfactorily
to the saluonmen.
SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT.
Home owners, the present city adminis
tration has raised your taxes In the last
yeur for the city alone J.17 mills. In round
figures. The Board of Education added
i mills. On a piece of property worth
$1,000 the Increase amounts to $3.17 mora
than last year under the, same valuation.
Thla doea not Include Interest on more
than $400,000 worth of bonds that have
alread been' Issued and $130,000 expected
to be Issued after the first of the year.
This means your Interest fund alone must
be Increased next year mora than $30,000.
EXPENSIVE, NEEDLESS EXPENDI
Four blocks, from Twenty-fourth to
Twenty-eighth on J, paving coat $27,997.17.
Halt rout per front foot was $1.63, tha
city paying the other half. Taxes, on
each front lot were fXA What will tha
taxpayers in general aay when they re
call that J street from Twenty-fourth to
Twenty-elgh'b Is only a road to tha lum
ber yard of a prominent antl-annexatlon-l?t?
This la a sample of the city council's
method of economy.
CITY TREASURER'S OFFICE.
During IMS the city treasurer's office
cost the taxpayers t2U. in 1P10 the cost
had increased to UMi. Taking the flrat
ten months of 1911 aa an example, the
treaaurer's office will cost tha taxpayers
for 1911 $i.W0 an Increase over ten yeara
ago of C.400.
In lSuii the treasurer'a office force con
alited ct the treasurer and the deputy.
The force today haa been doubled several
times, which forced the salary expense
up from IS.ZA 1906 to $5,100 for 1911.
EXPENSE IN CLERK'S OFFICE
, In 1X! the city clerk's office was oper
ated by two men, trie city clerk and an
assistant. The city pity roll shows the city
clerk's office for salaries In IMS amounted
to but $2,400. In li'10. only flvo years
later, the salary expense In the city
clerk's office had crept up to $t.W0. This
was nn Increase of $-.040 per year. The
following year, 1911, the records show
that the expense for ealarles In tha city
clerk's office will amount to practically
the same as during U'lO
The population of Bouth Omaha, In
round figures. Is the same as It was In
l!tt6. when the salaries In the city clerk's
office amounted to but $2 W. againat
$4.SU for I9IL Cltlxena wilt also remember
that there lias bten no material Increase

the pnbllcity committee of the Bonth

'ihrt annexationists fired the firxt gun
or inetr campaign by attempting to
prove that tuxes had steadily Increased
in South Omaha since l'i02. They give
you the annual appropriation, beginning
with 1!2, but fall to give you the tax
levy In mills for those years. It shows
the disposition on their part to be unfair
and mislead you. We give you herewith
the annual tax levy In mills, beginning
IP" 9.22 mills W g.07 mills
" 9 4 mills lOKt I.M mills
.J5 rnUis Ii9 mill
7 i& mills 1910 .4 mills
Notwithstanding lha many Improve
ments we have made, the mill levy of
1910 waa only twenty-two hundredths of a
mill more than In 1902. On property val
ued at $1,000 the tax for 1910 would be
only 23 cents more than In 1902. Any
Increase of the tax levy of 1911 over 1910,
as claimed by them, Is due entirely to
the fact of maintaining two new fire
hails end also Increased Interest on bonds
ixsued for paving, of which the tity-nt-large
pays one-half. We cannot have
improvements without paying for them.
The amount Omaha haa rained by taxa
tion has steadily Increased. During the

TO THE VOTERS OP NEBRASKA:
By the kindness of the Editor of The Omaha Bee. I am ncaln
permitted to address you through Its
I published my other letter to you.
as a republican candidate for judge of the supreme court. You voted
for me and you nominated me. Most earnestly do I thank you for It.
e are now approaching the election,
come or ine newspapers nave, complained because I communicated
with you in this way. The newspapers which complained ar dominated
by some other idea than republicanism.
It cannot be wrong.to do right.
It cannot be unlawful to do that which the law makea nrurv
I am going to publish this letter to
do It, If the editor permits me, no difference who objects.
If it is right for the candidates to tell the voters about themselves,
so that the voters may know for whom they wish to vote, then telling
ine voters cannot pe wrong.
How areHhe voters to know about the qualifications of the candi
date and his views unless the candidate tells them, either through the
press or by word of mouth In conversation, or from the stump in speeches?
If I attempt to drive around and tell the voters by word of mouth
that I am a candidate, It will take me, at the rate of two hundred for
each week, more than two years and a half to net around. Therfor. thla
Is the cheapest and best way.
The old way of procuring a nomination to be made by a convention
has been done away with by an act of tho legislature. The new way
of procuring a nomination to be made Is by direct vote of the people at
The candidate and the people should be free to exercise their Intel
ligence in any way that seems best to them, and especiaclly touching the
communication of Ideas by letter, by word of mouth in conversation, by
speeches in. public assemblies and by Communications throueh newspapers
That new way puts It up to youUo find out about the candidates, and
then to vote for your choice both at the primary and at the general elec
tion. It also puts It up to the candidate to let the people know that he .
Is a candidate, and the reason why the people should vote for him. I
cannot, hitch up my bay mare, "Blaze," and drive around in my old buggy
and see you, because there are two hundred and, seventy-one thousand
of you, and it would take two or three years to go around and see you
all. I cannot write and mail you each a letter because that will cost
eight thousand one hundred and thirty dollars, which Is very much more
money than I have. Now I would send to every voter in the state a letter
written by myself and signed by myself and enclosed in an envelope If
I could, but the Job Is too big for me. I must do tho best I can. I know
that you will give me credit for my good Intentions and for any effort
which I make.
I am the kind of man most of you seem to want to hear from. I
know something of the trouble you have had and which you may have
again, and you are certain If I am elected of having a judge on the supreme
bench who can sympathize with you In your troubles, and who knows
something about you.Jjecause he is one of you and he will try to deal
fairly with you.
My experiences In my primary campaign were chiefly the expenses
of communication with you by letter, or through tho press. 1 am again
successful at the primary. For the first time la forty-four years the west
has chance to elect a republican candidate for supreme Judge.
I am a republican. I began as a boy to be a republican. I was in
a procession carrying a big banner for Abraham Lincoln when I was
seventeen years old. The banner was about twelve feet square. It had
Lincoln's picture painted on it. We went by Mr. Lincoln's house In
Springfield. It was Just after he was nominated the first time. I waved
tho banner and felt proud of being permitted to hold it. I was old enough
to vote for him the second time he was a candidate and I cast my first
ballot for him. I have Industriously voted the republican ticket ever
since. I expect to live and die a republican. I always vote for the re
publican candidate if I think he is as good as the democratic candidate.
If ho isn't it's my privilege to vote for the democrat, and I have oc
casionally done so when I thought he was the biggest, broadest and best
man. 1 have always had democratic personal friends and acquaintances
who knew me and believed in me and voted for me, whenever I waa a
candidate. There are a good many of these same friends in Nebraska
tBis fall, and along with my republican friends and associates they are
going to vote for me. I expect to be elected.
The last time I was elected district judge I ran against a very able
democratic lawyer. He was a great speechmaker, I always was proud
of his ability. He was my neighbor and my friend. We never said un
kind things of each other. He was subsequently a Judge of the district
court and after that a member of congress. In my contest with him I
was elected by a majority of forty-one hundred and ninety-six In a total
vote of slightly more than fifteen thousand five hundred.
I have no unkind words to say of the very few editors who deem it
to be their duty to oppose me. They do not know me very well. They
do not live in my neighborhood. Then they may have listened to some
person who was unfriendly:' When the editor of a republican paper can
be driven from his post of duty near election time by the dictation of
oue who is net a member of his party, and who does not affiliate with
his party in any way, then there Is a total disregard of party obligations
as well as a disregard of republicanism.
1 served the people as a district Judge a little more than eight yeara.
I disposed of more than five thousand rases in that time. I tried many
important civil cases. There was a good deal of valuable property In the
district, cattle ranches and cattle. The district extended from the east
line of Buffalo and Sherman counties to the west line of the state. It
was nearly three hundred miles long by about one hundred and fifty
miles wide. I did my duty n3 a district Judge. Guilty persona were
promptly tried. They were generally found guilty and punished. Tha
jpeople were satisfied.

I was a district Judge I neglected my duty or that I was favorable to any
special Interest. It was not charged that I was favorable to saloons
or that I refused to .punish those who violated the law regulating the sale
of Intoxicating liquors. I have been tested all along the line. I have
never refused to discharge my duty anywhere.
