HABTIXG3, Neb.. Oct. 7. (Special Tfle
frram) Mayor William Madvett today
named E. B. t'uher and N. C. Bachelor
of Milwaukee, Wis., aa the men who,
he alleges, attemped to brtbe him In
Omaha last June to support the proposed
franchise of the Hastings Oaa company,
which carried a big majority at the spec
lal election on Tuesday of thla week.
The mayor laid If. he had nt been
taken sick ten dnya before the election
he would have railed a man meeting
and laid the facta before the people.
Among hla Item of proof the mayor
mentioned a telegram from Mr. Hacheior
urging him to come to Omaha at Bache
lor's expense on "a matter thatmlght
prove beneficial to both."
Mr. Bachelor, the mayor claim, in a
detective employed by the gaa company.
He waa In Hastings during the lant week
before election. As there had been no
rumors In circulation here of the urn of
tiny undue Influence on the part of the
gas company, the charges came as a
wmplete surprise to Hastings people.
Vice president and Manager A. W. Bor
den this evening refused to discuss the
matter, further than to say that he knew
nothing of the meting In Omaha until
weks afterwards and was not conver
lant with what had taken place.
"However, It does seem singularly
trange that anything of so serious a
character has not been brought to the
attention of the people before this, even
before the man who purports to charge
with misdemeanor left Hastings," added
Mr. Borden.
Mr. Usher and Mr. Bachelor were here
representing the eastern Investors of the
gas utility, returning to Milwaukee fol
lowing the election.
Mr. Madgett Is a candidate for the
republican nomination for governor. He
signed the proposed gas franchise after
It had been approved by the council,
explaining today that he did so because
his city attorney advised him that he
had no discretion because It w?a up to
the people to decide whether or not the
franchise should be granted.
