-Political Dopesterf Are Plannit?
Spring City Election.
PROPOSE TO MAITOAMUS MAYOR
peer and ComMr of Caleasjo
Given Manured aad Ten Tho-nd-Dollar
Block 9t City
Honda at Low Interest.
Pouth Omaha Is to have another city
election next spring; according politi
It seems, accord Inn to the wise men,
who Incidentally have once served tlia
people In official capacity, that the law
extending the term of the present ad
ministration, is Illegal, null, void and un
constitutional. Report has it that ex
Mayor Tom Hootor has aald so. Ex
t'lty Treasurer Chris Melcher and cx
City Treasurer John Grlbble have con
curred together with several former
emirs, sheiks and caliphs of the past
As the slate Is marked, there Is talk
of the following lineup: Joseph Kc
piets for mayor, Chrta Melcher for treas
urer, Tom Hector ' John Grlbble and
a few others for what is left. John
Grlbble Fttld yesterday that ho would
not consent to the use of his name for
nny polltl.-nl office. Joseph Koplets It Is
Sfild. docs rot take kindly to the sus
gtvtlon o' citing Into politics.
Mayor T.ainor, It Is understood, will
bo mandamusrj to Issue the call for
election. . '
Lawyers in discussing the extension
clause of the charter stand pro and con.
Pome maintain that the law Is unconsti
tutional on the ground of class legisla
tion and others maintain that the legis
lature hns every right over a municipal
corporation which Is its own creature.
When ..some of the merchants and busi
ness men were told of the move yester
Cay they openly expressed their dlsa
probation. One man anld: "Here we
are Ju-n recovering from the effects of
the annexation .fight and we must face
another row that will tear the city wide
open. It Is time that the people were
relieved of the machinations of the professional-politician.
If these things are
to' go on, 1 shall take the first oppor
tunity of closing out my business."
Sprrri Get the Bonds.
tpeer & Co., bond buyers of Chicago
111., were awarded the $110,880 issue of re
newal bonds at i per cent after a fight
that has caused the mayor and city off!
clals to become doubtful of the altruistic
Intentions of bond houses In general.
The meeting was called to order at 2
o'clock and representatives of four houses
were? present in the persons of W. J.
Long, agent of Spltrer-Rorlck company of
Toledo; A. J. Spencer, agent for lioehler
OumnilnKs of Toledo: A. J. Fischer, agent
for Roth-Well of Cincinnati and Chicago.
peer's bid was a written communication
ssnt direct from their house without any
third party or agent to offer It.
Telegraphic and telephonic communlca
tion satisfied the officials that the Speer
people were thoroughly reliable and the
only question to be decided by the coun
cil was whether the transcriptions can
be completed and gotten out in lime for
the Speer people to take them up before
January 1. In caise the attorneys of the
Speer house find the transcriptions Im
proper they may reject the agreement
and leave the city without means of re
deeming the outstanding and imminent ob
HoatinnM which. . unless .satisfied, will
seriouxly threaten Its credit.
'' The promise of the local banks to stand
in the breach is not considered entirely
satisfactory for the reason that national
banks cannot go surety or guarantee the
credit of the city. Of course it might be
arranged that the banks could supply the
amount required to the city, but the city
would have to furnlBh good collateral that
would be available as security elsewhere.
It Is hoped, however, that the company
in whom the bondB have been awarded
will carry out its contract and success
fully float the Issue.
With the final conclusion of the sale
will paBs an element of disturbance In the
city government. At yesterday's meeting
there were personalities bordering on re
crimination. The bond buyers claimed
they had not been fairly treated by the
city. Mayor Trainor said that the bond
buyers had done anything but treat the
city according to rule.

The stage was set for the event with
every attention to detail. Six chairs In

all things were In readiness Clerk Good
emerged from his private office to 'the
middle of the outer room, where he was
-flanked on either side by . Ills deputies,
John Fennel and John Mereell.
Amid a deathlike stillness the clerk
then presented Misses Isabelle Flaherty,
r.ccretary to the mayor; Matilda Wogen
een, stenographer to the ally attorney;
Anna Martin and Agnes Fitzgerald,

church for the last six years, the choir
members last evening presented a solid
silver toilet service to Mrs. I H. Greer,
who Is about to take a two months' trip
to the Taclfio coast.

Mrs. Greer will be absent for two
months during which time she will visit
