- Recoguizing llio right of the Voters to be
thoroughly informed as lo the position of enndi
dates for public office, the Citiavf as Union candi

to our intention if elected: , ...
First, as to the Police Department:
, We will eliminate all graft and favoritism,
and will abolish gambling and dives and the solo
of liquor at unlicensed places. -
"We will investigate thoroughly and with open
minds all charges or allegations against the police
department, and where such, barges' or allega- $
tions are proven to be well founded we will cor-
rect mismanagement and punish dereliction of
duty to the limit of our power under the lnw. (
All meetings of tho Commissioh as a License 't"

Second as to Public Service Corporations: ,
No franchise, or extension of franchise, will
bo considered without full publicity qnd free dis- '
cussion by the citizenship generally and submis
sion to a referendum vote. We will demand of
every public service corporation the best service
at the lowest price that careful investigation and
experience elsewhere shows to be possible; and
will insist on specific and continuous performance
of the matters' and things contemplated iu exist
ing franchises by every corporation doing busi-
ness under a license or franchise from the City
of Omaha, having constantly in mind the right -of
the city to ultitaately own or control the service.
We will endeavor to ascertain the legal date
of expiration of every public service franchise,
and to secure at the earliest possible moment the
physicial valuation of their property.
