Hoctor an Ensor have taken to fight

creased tho pieetlgo of cither with the

ho was not present to mako attacks on

for less than sis months, during which
time ho has won a number of friends by
his personal characteristics.
Among other things It now develops
that the Industrial Workers of the World,
nf which organization thero are two coun
cils In South Omaha, have gone on rec
ord against Mayor Hoctor because of his
attitude towards tho laboring man.

ltev. James Aherne, one of the well
known and highly esteemed clergymen of
tho city, pastor of St. Agnes' Catholic
church, was elected n member of the gen

city hall. Rev. Mr. Aherne was dole
gated to look Into tho matter of giving
a Christian burial to the unidentified
man who has been kept at I.arkln's fu
neral parlors since the cyclone at rtal-
ston last Sunday. The funeral was ar
ranged for this morning at 10 o'clock
from Larkln's chapel. The rellof commlt
teo donated $30 for tho burial and the
undertaker furnished tho rest. Inter
ment will be made In Laurel 11111 ceme

sufferer made destitute by the cyclone,
was provided with transportation to her

llotu Kntor and Hoctor are opponents of
Howard In the race for mayor. Yestor
day morning Ensor and Howard met
Morgan Heafey at Twenty-fourth and M
streets. "Here. Morgan," said Howard,
"take the doctor, here, and do the
necesary by him while I go and get ah
undertaker to look after Hoctor." Tae
funny part of It la that Howard's toke

To the Voters and Citizens of South
Ill soliciting your support of my can
didacy for the nomination of city at
torney at tho prlmury on next Tuesday, I
deem It my duty to call your attention
o tho fact that I am opposed by every
gangster and combination of professional
politicians who look upon tho people and
tho people's good money as their Iegltl
nmto spoil. True to my election pledges,
I l.avo stood between the people and
their spoilsmen, and for that reason the
gang and their affiliations havo marked
mo for slaughter.
Hero are some of the reasons why tho
politicians do not want mo to be city at
torney: 1. Bcoauso I believe "ho revenues of
each year should lutly satisfy to dis
charge all the debts and liabilities con
tracted by tho city in that year;
becuuso I have Insisted that ac
cording to law all back ,tax money
should be carried forthwith into the In
terest and sinking fund, und not spent
In hiring unnecessary help in tho dif
ferent city departments merely with a
view to Increasing the strength of cer
tain perpetual officeholders,
2. Because I would not permit the city
treasurer to Increase his already too lurge
office force by hiring additional tax col
lectors. 3. Bocauso I firmly refused to counto
nanco ii echemo whereby tho paving tax
burdens of certain Influential citizens
should bo Imposed upon the city at large.
4. Because notwithstanding tho
"pulls" of gang politicians, I vigorously
prosecuted the toughs and hoodlums who
Insulted the wives and daughters of htfn
est men on the streets of tho city.
6. Because X drew a special ordinance
seeking to eliminate the slot machines
from the city,
6. Because I have fought grafters at
every turn of the road so that you and
every citizen might get n square deal re
gardlcss of politics, race or creed Be
cause when tho chief of the flro depart
ment says he can man his forces with
twenty-six men that It Is dishonest to
employ twenty-nine men. I don't under
stand why the city with $600,000 on de
posit, Is the only depositor who gets only
2 per cent Interest on Its money.
Even my opponents are compelled to
ndmlt that I have managed tho affairs
of tho people with ubsotute probity and
Justice to all. If you arc with me against
grafters and gangsters, I want your sup
port on Tuesday.

MEN ARE WARNED NOT TO
BECOME RIP VAN WINKLES
"George Washington and Rip Vun
Winkle are two of America's Immortal
memories, both wero very much alike,
asldo from tho small difference, that
Washington was all that u citizen of a
country Ehould be, whllo Rip Van Winkle
was all that a citizen should not be."
This formed one of the opening re
marks made by Bishop William A. Quayle
in his lecture last nigh'- ut the First
Methodist church, entitled "The Tragedy
of Rip Van Winkle.'' Dlshop Quayle,
aside from being a forceful nnd holding
speaker. Is possessed nt a sense of humor
which Inst night kept his large audience
In almost continuous merriment.
The bishop said why people should
weep over the recounting of tho life of
this character Is n mystery which he has
never been able to fathom. Rip Van
"Winkle, he continued, was nothing more
than a veritable hobo, a man who would
not work In any cense of the word let
his farm go to rack and ruin, and even
did not havo the energy to give his dog
a name. When Washington wus fighting
the battle of White Plains u fow miles
away and praying for men who could
shoot. Rip Van Wlilklo was rlddliu? him
self of the effects of a saturnalia by a
twenty years' sleep. A man with two
strong hands which might have accom
plished much for his country and family
was wasting his life. In sahi'-tng and
splddlng." This, lilshop Quayle stated.
Is the tragedy In the lives of modern Rip
Van Winkles, men wno are given able
bodies and sane minds, but are either too
lazy to work or aro busily employed In
the lucrative occupation of "schmoking
