is much less numerous at this time than
ever before, for there have been recent
evidences that the gang cannot win

Next spring there will be elected seven
commissioners to manage the business of
the city for three years. The 115,000 voters
are entitled to representation, not mis
representation. Sterling; Character Kaaratla.1.
At the head of each department there
should bo a man of sterling character, a
man of unusual ability and a man who
will recognise the rights and the interests
of all of the people.

business men and every division of the
voting population all of the voters mimt

Our opponents at the outset announced
that the Citizens' union wart an offshoot
of the Business Men's association. Noth
ing more untrue was ever stated. The
purpose wus. of course, to prejudice wajje
earners against this organization, it was
unfair to the voters and unfair to the
Citizens' union to create this laUe Im
pression. Tlie fuct as that two prominent mem
bers of organized labor are now acting
as members of the executive committee,
a tact which must convince the most
skeptical that the Citizens' union is not
in any sense opposed to the wage earn
ers. This organization can be of no
greater service to any citizen than to the
wage earners. The wage earner Is the
best friend of good government and good
government is tbe wage earner's best
The Citizens' union Is just what the
name implies a union of the citizens of
Omaha, Its sole purpose being good gov
ernment for Omalia.
Men of all positions and activities In
life can well atrord to Join flands on this
proposition. All men have a common in
terest In good government. All men have
eqvjal power to help secure It.
And light here It may be stated that
the Citizens' union will not endorse nor
recommend any candidates for commis
sioner who will not recognise and respect
the rights and privileges of the wage
earners as citizens of Omaha.
No ticket of seven candidates will be
satisfactory to the Citizens' union utile
It Is distinctly representative of the en
First of all. the candidates must have
good character and ability to conduct the
business of the city successfully. Tlio
candidates must be free from entangle
ments with the gang which the Citizens'
union Is determined- to defeat.
The Issue next spring will be clear cut
as between government in the Interest
of the whole city and government in the
Interest of the corrupt machine gang.
Of necessity the voters who favor good
government will find it necessary to unite
upon seven men who deserve public con
fidence and support.
Any other plan will spell defeat.
Every citizen is invited to Join the Cltl
sens' union. All members 'will receive
each week the union paper with informa
tion as to what Is being done.

' Variable and Universal Line Spacing
One of the satisfying conveniences of the I.
Smith Premier Typewriter
which saves time is the variable and universal line
This deviee brings the writiug point just whre
you want it in order to insert a letter or word in
any given line of typewriting, and also permits of
writing on the lino of ruled paper even thbugh the
distance between lines'varies. At the right hand
end of the platen you will find a small knob. Press
this knob and you can bring theaper exactly to
the line required.
The perfect alignment of the Smith Premier type
writer need never be marred in making correc
tions, once the operator loams to use the variablo
and universal line spacer. Also writing on the line
on ruled paper is as simple as writing en unruled
paper because of this device.
Ajid yet it is but one of the 28 Smith Premier ad
vantages. The business men of Omaha are generally acquainted
now, with the fact that this is the tyxewriter office that
doesn't "pester" a man tabuj They ask for a dcraonstra-
tor with full knowledge that "all" their time, from then ,
on, will not be taken listening to typewriter salesmen.
They feel safe that's why they call.
