Pueblo to look after a business that had
belonged to hia brother, and announced
his Intention to give up hla residence In
Omaha and remove there? He communi

not their fault. "

he found himself pounced on by several
constables summoning him Into justice
courts to tell why he had not paid up
certain accumulated debts, and at that
time ha set about to father In a little
easy money. To mora than one party
who wanted to Inherit his shoes, hs sue
astad that his resignstloa would be worth
something, at least enough to square up
what he awed, particularly aa the other
cnoneilmea had promised ta let him name
his successor, and he could therefore
guarantee to deliver the roods. Inquiry
of asms of the eounellmante associates
in a way corroborated Davis assertion,
as they said that while Dans' sndors

fee given great weight. Councilman
Hummel wss Just at that moment trying

his decision to resign and atsld on the

"As to the place going to a republican
or a democrat, that was all threshed out
at that time. Aa every one knows, sn
inner circle combine of three republicans
and three democrats has been running
the council for the last three years, and
the agreement was reached by the com'
bine that all vacancies In elective city
offices should be Oiled from the same
party aa the outgoing officer. That Is
ho the dry attorneyship was kept by
the democrats when City Attorney Bur
asm died, and the city comptrollership
passed on to another democrat when
Congressman Lobeck resigned. The
Davis place in the council was to go to
a republican, even though without him
the remaining councilman could name a
democrat by ( to I, and the asms under
standing applied to the seat of Hummel,
which ha expected to vacate ta favor of
a successor of hla own selection when he
became sheriff. Bo far the democrats
hava had the benefit of that agreement
all the way through, and they certainly
will not go back on It now when the re
publicans have a Twelfth ward council
man's Job coming to them."
