a Haverstlck, President Omaha
Commercial dub: "Through the Com
mercial club are conducted all ot the
necessary activities for Omeha'e eommer
dal., industrial and dvlc inngrem. it le
the only medium organised and equipped
tor this purpose and la therefore Invalu
able; the developer of the highest type

3. H. Dusaont, J. U. Dumont a Boa!
The value ef the commercial dub of
Omaha Mm chiefly In the concentrated
force waic. the dtiaena of Omaha are
enabled, through ft, ta throw tnto every
effort made to Increase the business and
the prestige ot the city and protect It
against unjust discrimination and unfair
competition, lacldamally. the mlngans
ef the various dements comprising Ita
membership smoothes out many differ
encea which otherwise would ietord de
velopment and apllt the community into
factions. The work of the dub Is cee
telnly arrataable to the dty. and every
loyal ettlaau shoald aire It ala support."
TV. H, KCor4 President McCord-Brady
oomnany: "It It the desire of thl. com
pany and- all of Ita 'officers to work for
the welfare of thai Commercial dub I
this dty la an unselfish and. Impersonal
way.- It Is.. i.ellSv the desire icf the
majority 01 me memoers m m. tvumw
dal elub to work In the same way for
the welfare of each one of Ita membera.
It Is. therefore, only fair that the Com
mercial club should have the earn, cordial
treatment from each one of the business
Institutions la this dty, whether retailer,
wholesaler or manufacturer. -
George H. Kelly', vtce preatdenf execu
tive committee; president Adams a Kelly
company: "The Commercial club Is the
only organisation embracing all llnea of
business through which Intelligent and
effective action uiay be taken on any sub
ject, it Is the business men', clearing
house and the greatest single power for
material development In the "city. . The
dub la working all the time for the. good
of the community and therefore to the
direct benefit of every d titan. Its policy
and work are carried on unceasingly until
Its objects are accomplished."
J. E. Baura, ea-presldent; The Bennett
company: "The one great big fact that
the Commercial club lands for Omaha la
the essence of the whole thing, and to
lightly represent this city the Commercial
club should be an Institution strong, alert,
aggressive and high-class, and representa

the community, and that la Just what I
think H U."

In her affidavit Mra McKeen denied
the maid's testimony that McKeea fre
quently visited her wbea she waa Mrs
Hull, but admitted that he called 'occa
sionally. She denied that he frequently
remained until midnight, and declared
that oa the rare occasions on which he
called he always left about le o'clock.
