So Asserts Colonel A. D. Fetterman
in Letter to Lincoln Paper.
Pettermnn Wan til to Know Why Lin
coln la So Worried Over Uxpen
Uture for nn Armory at
Nehrnnlm City.
Colonel A. D. Fetterman, Inspector
general of tho Nebraska National Quard,
comes back onco more .with a pronounce
', ment on the armory target, making the
charge In a Lincoln paper that refcren
dum petition circulators in Omaha are
being paid 2V4 cents a name, the opening
for his statement:
"It Is not Omaha men. who aro paying
this money, If I may rely upon the state
ment of Prof. L. B. Tuckerman of tho
state university, to the effect that the.
money for this project woa raised In
Lincoln, and that he was Implored by
W. L. Locke, editorial writer ou tho
State Journal, to come to Omaha to or
ganize tho campaign here.
Instead, it Is quite apparent that tho
whole dastardly attempt to injure the
Nebraska National Guard has been or
ganized at Lincoln, as a list of tho execu
tive council ot the Voters'- Legislative
League ot Nebraska, maae public In
Omaha for the first time this week. In
dicates that L. B. Aylsworth, A. L.
Weathterly, W. L. Locke and A. W.
Richardson, all of Lincoln, are among Its
members, and again relying upon Prof.
Tuckerman, Its actlvo managers.
Why Are They Worried t
Why. permit me to ask, are these four
gentlemen of Lincoln so much worried
about JIO.OOO being npeht elsewhere than
In Lincoln? Does not Lincoln, fattening
Upon the enormous, appropriations made
for the support of tho state university,
tho penitentiary, one of tho three asylums
for the Insane, the state capltol, the state
fair and perhaps a few more Institutions
feel that Its share of the state funds Is
sufficient? "Why this Insane Jealousy of
Nobraska City and of other cities that
may later ask for armory appropriations t
Why raise a slush fund and dragoon uni
versity .professors into their service to
Injure others?
"It cannot be with a patriotic motive,
elHe they would not rely largely upon the
Industrial Workers of the World and
other enemies of law and order, to flit
their petttlqns. It cannot bo to rebuke
log rolling, else. their voices would be
raised In- protest against every appro
priation for a Lincoln institution. It
cannot be In the cause of .progress, else
they would not run counter to tro spirit
and practice of the most progressive
states of the .union In the matter of
armory building. It cannot be for the
introduction of tho referendum, because

' At what will probably be tho last
meeting of the Water board in whloh
he will participate D. J. O'Brien, who
resignation is In the hand ot the watet
commissioner, told R. Beeoher Howell
and his colleagues where to head -In at a
meeting yesterday afternoon.
One of O'Brien' .frjends, whose' name
ho did no wish to make public, had been
hard hit by one of tho Water board
fool rule. Under one of the regulations
tnado by Water Commissioner R. B,
Howell, tenant cannot have water turned
on until tho owner ot the premises slgne
on security for water bills.
This friend of O'Brien' rented a house
from a men who Is now In Europe. As
wa to have been expected, under the
Howell rulings the man was 'rofusod
water until tho owner ot the place signed
a security. In anger tho roan catted
on O'Brien and with little less anger
than hi friend O'Brien marched up to
tho water offices' and ordered the water
On, but he had to' glvo his own word
that he would pay the tenant')blll It the
tenant should ever refuse to pay.
"There is no Justice In such an Iron
clad rule a this," O'Brien told tho
water obard. "It works an undue hard
ship on water users. I see the necessity
of some rules, but this one Is too string
Illatnea Wchafer.
"Attorney Webster made this ruling
about a year ago and it has been in cf
pot Blncer" mildly remonstrated a wa
ter, boarder.
."What If he did make It?" snapped
O'Brien. "Webater hasn't been always
right- He told u certain suit wero com
ing out thus and so and they didn't"
Wile no action was taken to remedy
the gross injury which result from this
regulation, O'Brien Insisted on remedial
regulation and tho matter is being con
aidered by the water commissioner, al
though action may be delayed until after
O'Brien' resignation takes effec', whlon
will be wjthtrt the next few days, it Is up.
O'Brien ha frequently voiced bis de
termination to resign, but owimr tn tha
flg'ht for lower water rate he eald he
hated to quit under fire for fear of being
called a "wolsher." Now that the Water
board haa forced the water commissioner
to make two slight reductions of rate
O'Brien Is ready to quit.
W. If. Buchols will follow O'Brien, hi
resignation having been unofficially an
nounced several tlmoa recently. He, too,
decided to "stick under fire," but he
hastened the action "ST the board In
