TO NAME CENTRAL COMMITTEE The spirit of republicanism was re awakened at Washington hall Satur day evening, by a well-attended gath ering of republicans from every precinct of the city, under the aus pices of the McKinley league. The keynote of the resolutions and the addresses was a plea for renewed ' partisanship among the rank and file of republicans, that affairs of the city, state and nation may be administered by the party which the speakers de clared has successfully piloted the ship of state through many storms and whose supremacy was over thrown by "bolters, weather-cocks and nondescripts," as expressed by George D. Meiklejohn. The l!"t sentence' of the resolution adopted reads. "We declare It necessary that the republicans of Omaha support for the offices of city commissioners. May t. 1015, men who are members of our party and who have a party responsibility." Adopt Ilenolnllona. Following- the adoption of the general resolutions, offered by Frank A.

Hackett. which brought an amended resolution from Ed Leeder, who wanted the nam of J. J. Ryder Included In the list. After some discussion it was decided that the original resolutions covered the whole ground and that it was unnecessary to art upon the Shriver and Leeder resolu tions. C. S. Elgutter objected to the Shotwell resolutions, his point bring that he n against drawing a strict party line la purely local affairs. He said he stood for republicanism In national and state affairs, but would not commit himself to a policy of Indorsing men for local of fices because they wore a certain party label. He wanted the resolutions re ferred to a committee before the meeting took action, but received no support or second. The meeting lasted about an hour and the business was transacted expeditiously. Ar W. Jefferis was chairman and J. M. Talbot and M. J. Oreevy were secre taries. .. Believe In Partisanship. In his opening address Chairman Jef feris said: "The McKinley league wa formed to Inject new life into the city and county republican organisations. There Is need to return to the old Idea of par tisanship, something which finds ex pression In all of our affairs of business, labor, sport and even ouP religion. A partisan Is looked upon as a man with fixed ideas and whose mind Is not turned by every wind which blows. Partisanship has given u the beat thing all through the age. "In theory, fancy and folly some have declared there Is no more ' place for parties in local affair. President Wil son recently aaid that all men should join the democratic party. He is a partisan. There ar some here in Omaha who have said that the republicans should not meet and Indorse republicans. onpartlaanhlp Breed Cllqne. "This so-called non partisanship brings out private cliques, Klates and combina tions. It Is a sort of drifting along. It Is a case of nobody' business. What ha berndone In our recent city campaign,? It has been like a grave yard There, wa no commotion until trie republican talked of holding a meeting. We have them talking. Beuubllcans -have the tight to vote for republicans. " "The McKinley league 'was formed to keep alive the party tlst has always stood for liberty and prosperity. At the old-time party meetings we learned of the capabilities of men, but we have degen erated Into a regime of fancy and folly. The.-tlme has come for the people to get back to republican government and a good administration of affairs." To Eliminate Bolter. Referring to Mr. Ryder, Ed Leeder suggested that those present who have made no mistakes throw the first bricks. No bricks were thrown. "I believe that our policy of nenpar tisanshlp has resulted in placing In giower democratic governor and legis lature In a republican state and also sent senator and half of our congressmen to Washington, besides defeating such (Continued on Page Two,' Column Two.)
