WANT MEETING SUNDAY
A petition asking that writ of
mandamus be issued compelling the
t city commissioners to revoke the con
: tract wtih the Nebraska Prosperity
league for the exclusive me of the
Auditorium for the ten days from
; October 27 to November 7, has been
filed with the clerk of the district
," court by Elmer E. Thomas campaign
manager of the Douglas county "dry"
. campaign committee.
The petition alleges that the action
' of the Prosperity league in renting
the Auditorium is against public pol
" icy and was entered into for the pur
; pose of preventing the "dry" forces
from using the building for arguments
i in favor of the prohibitory amend-
ment. . ' t ";
i The plaintiff asks that ,tlie court di
f rect the city commissioners to itn
i mediately revoke the contract and
1 rent the Auditorium to the "drys"
Sunday afternoon or Monday even-.
' ing. . ' - ..', '
That the Prosperity league has of
fered the use of the Auditorium to
' anyone agreeing that the prohibition
: question would not be discussed is
- charged.," The petition states that this
proffer was made to the ' Christian
- Endeavorers, who declined it. -
The petition further alleges that the
contract impairs the rights of the pub
lic, is unreasonable, unfair and was
made for the purpose of preventing
r a free discussion of public questions
: in a building supposed to be for the
use of the public in general.
The case will come before Judge
: Sear. .... , ;
Secure Lot, Too. ' j
Not only have the wets leased the
Auditorium so that the drys are un
able to get it for the Bryan meeting
or for other prohibition meetings dur
ing the remainder of the campaign,
but the Prosperity league, according
to. Elmer Thomas, has leased many
vacant lots, including the site where
the Billy Sunday Tabernacle stood a
This Mr. Thomas and the dry fed
eration discovered when in despera
tion, after failing to get the Audi
torium, they rushed to rental offices
seeking to get vacant lot on which
to erect a large tent for the Bryan
meeting and for other dry meetings.
"They have sewed up everything,"
laid Mr. Thomas.

proceedings to have hi little daugh

child's grandmother, Mrs. Mary Mon
The fight over who is to have the

J his wife obtained a divorce decree

Letters to War Prisoners
The po9toffice is experiencing a
rush similar to that of the Yuletide
period because of the flooding of the
local office with political literature.
The political literature being sent out
this year is the largest the local office
has had to contend with.
The postoffice has started on' its
way a large amount of foreign mail
for prisoners of war held in the va
rious internment -camps throughout
the world. The consignments are ex
pected to reach the prisoners about
Christmas time. The mail is handled
without cost to the sender and con
sists chiefly of books, periodicals and
newspapers. A large portion of the
mail will be sent to Japan and Rus-ia.-
