Bryan-Wilson democrats are Joins lomt
little talking now of tho possibility of
tunning J. W. Woodrough of Omaha for
congressman from the Second district.
Woodrough Is a young lawyer who has
becomo popular recently, especially since
he ma do his great soap-box campaign
during tho Wilson campaign la Omaha.
"Woodrough had never made an open-air
political talk until someone prodded him
to tho sticking point. He then waxed
loquacious, mounted a soap box and made
a stralght-from-the-shoulder speech.
Ho had pretty good success, as such
successes go. That Is, ho was not slain
with a brick.
Uo took courage. Tho next night ho
moved his soap box and spoke at another
comer Again ho had success. Ills cour
age mounted, and for two weeks ho was
almost a nightly orator on the street
corners, .always expounding the beauties
of democracy as represented In Bryan
and Wilson, and a few other fellows he
Then, too, he was president of the
Woodrow Wilson league In Omaha long
before the famous fight at Baltimore.
He was president of the league after
"Wilson's ylctory nt Baltimore and up to
the big victory at the November elec
tion. Silk (Hacking; Democracy,
Also, one night at a called meeting of
the'so-calfod? "silk-stocking democracy"
of Omaha, Woodrough, as president of
the Woodrow Wilson league, advocated
new county convention to select dele
gates for tho democratic convention at
Grand Island. Ho pointed out that per
sistent rumor would have It no other way
than that tho Dahlman democrats, who
had been appointed as delegates to tho
Grand Island convention wero not duly
chosen according to the rulen of con
vention procedure, therefore, ho wanted
to know If tho rest of the democracy of
the town would sit Idly by and let tho
bunch send a delegation to Grand Island
that did not at all represent tho democ
racy of Douglas county. Homo of the
"sIlK stockings" wero enthusiastic with
him, but the meeting adjourned without
any action on tho matter.
Dahlman DclCR-nllnn,
The result was that at the Grand Isl
and convention tho Douglas county dele
gation was a Dahlman delegation.
Everything that camo up In favor of
Uryan was opposed by tho solid phalanx
from Omaha, which announced In a deep
Voice "One hundrAii'
Now the question Is, how will Wood
rough stand with tho DnHlnfan de
mocracy T Not so bad, say some, for
wmie he has. often been against them,
he Is a clean little fighter. Then. too.
the question Is asked, If only he and
Lobeck should enter tho race for tho
democratic nomination, what would hap
pent Tho Dahlman democracy may not
wasie christian kisses on Woodrouuii.
but they have mado it plain that they
are not strong for Lobock again. At tho
same tlmo Lobeck is said to havo lost
much of his support from tho churches
on account of hlsvoto on tho Webb.
