Michael Oillen, Veteran Police
Officer, Reported Near
HIS RECORD NOTABLE ONE
Michael J. Gillen, policeman and
detective on the South Side since
1908, was reported to be in a critical
condition at a late hour last night at
St. Joseph's hospital. Doctors predict
ed that he would probablyjiot live
through the night.
Gillen was considered one of the
most able police officers connected
with the South Side department. His
part in several of the daring espi
sodes that mark the path of South
Side police in investigating murder
cases hat been notable.
Under the annexation law he be
came detective under Chief of Police
Dunn and was several times compli
mented on his record.
For the last six months the veteran
policeman has been declining in
hearth. Last week his illness became
acute. An operation was performed
Friday morning. He weakened fast
after the operation.
The Gillen home is at 5129 South
Thirty-ninth avenue, South Side. Mrs.
Gillen and a family of seven small
children live there. Mr. Gillen is 46

Polish-American Citizens' club, which

of this district, met insessiori a week
ago and decided to hbid a political

was later rescinded, it is charged,
and arrangements made for another
meeting inviting only Senator Hitch
cock and Congressman Lebcck of the
democratic party. The meeting was
far from a success, there being
actually only , twelve v voters in at

ranged for a big republican rally for
Monday evening at the club hall at

GREAT CAMPAIGN OF
1916 REACHES END
Battle for Votes of Nation
Waged by Presidential Can
didates Nears Close.
WAS SOME EXCITING TIME
New York, Nov. 5. With a final
appeal to voters, the csndidates for
the presidency closed their campaigns
tonight. Similarly throughout the na
tion, advocates of the different parties
presented their closing arguments in
behalf of their candidates, both na
tional and state. ' s
President Wilson made his last ad
dress late today at Shadow Lawn at
a celebration of "Old Home Day,"
that was participated in by his neigh
bor! from New Jersey, the president's
home state. From now on the presi
dent plans to spend his time quietly
at his summer home.
Charles E. Hughes, the republican
nominee spent the day with his
neighbors and friends in his home
city, New York. He made a whirl
wind tour of the town, beginning
early in the afternoon and ending
with a mass meeting at night in Madi
son Square Garden. He plans to re
main in the city over election day.
Both Are Confident.
Both candidates in their final talks
summed up the issues as presented by
them during the campaign and each
expressed confidence of victory.
The campaign has been active and
prolonged, fought largely on issues,
such as the problems growing out of
the European war and the situation
in Mexico, the tariff and the pros
perity of the nation. '
It has provided some remarkable
features in the way of long continued
journeys and speech making. These
included the tours cf Mr. Hughes,
who started on August 5 and since
then has traveled about 28,000 miles
through thirty-three states. It has
been stated that Mr, Hughes made

ever before, because or the tact
that several slates have been added

feature of the pre-election' activity.
This train traveled 11,700 miles
through twenty-eight states and ad--

Besides the president and vice

BRYAN DOESN'T TAKE
SINGLE WORD BACK
Commoner, in Open Air Speech,
Has Nothing to Say for
SCORES LOCAL DEMOCRACY
At an open-air meeting north of the
postoffice Saturday evening. W. J.
Bryan excoriated local democracy for
alleged affiliation with the liquor in
terests, neglected to mention Senator
Hitchcock by name or inference, de
clined to consider the candidacy of
Keith Neville when asked by one of
the audience, delivered a prohibition
lecture in characteristic Bryan man
ner, answered several Hecklers and at
tempted to defend the policies of
Woodrow Wilson. At no time did he
take back the charges which he had
previously made against the Nebraska
In a preliminary talk I. J. Dunn an
nounced "a democratic political meet
ing." On the platform with Mr. Biyan
were L. J. Quinby, L. B. Johnson, S.
I. Gordon, W. R. Patrick, Lysle .1.
Abbott, C. G. Cunningham and Frank!
Harrison of Lincoln.
Uses Portable Platform.
City Commissioner Hummel loaned
his portable band platform, which
served as a speaking stand and was
placed near the curb at the north side
of the postoffice. A crowd of nearly
5,000 heard Mr. Bryan, who referred
in impassioned words to the necessity
of being required to speak outside.
He experienced some difficulty in try
ing to satisfy the demands of those
who wanted him to face their direc
tion, as the audience surrounded the
platform. . '
"Turn around this way, Bill,"
shouted a good-natured listener. And
then someone on another side would
make a similar request.
Mr. Bryan had fairly launched into
his attack upon the fiauor' interests.
when a heckler shouted, "What about
the grape juice? whereupon Mr.
Bryan quickly retorted. "I- want to
tell the man who said that, if he
would drink grape juice he would not
get drunk and beat his wife."
Another heckler asked Mr. Bryan
something about the drug stores after
Nebraska went dry, Mr. Bryan reply
ing that if the drug store would take
the place of the saloon, then the ques
tioner should have no fear of the drug
Neville Not Important.
"What about Neville?" asked an
I have more important subjects to
talk about tonight, sir," was the ready
"What about Missouri?" was an
other question. s
1 here are too many breweries in
Missouri now, but that state will be
in line later on," replied Mr. Bryan. -
.wnat about woodrow Wilson?
was the next query. i
"I'll get to him, but you won't help
his cause any by trying to tie him to
ypur liquor interests," was tile answer.
Not a word for Senator Hitchcock
during the whole evening, although
Mr. Bryan was particular to mention
the democratic congressional nominee
for this district bv name and even en
dorse him with Woodrow Wilson."
Roasts Local Democracy,
Mr. Bryan's arraignment of local
democracy was awful to behold. After
declaring he intended to vote in Lan
caster county for dry candidates re
gardless of party, he said: "Here in
Omaha a democrat seems lonesome if
he is for prohibition, but after next
Tuesday we will have a democracy in
Nebraska with a higher ideal than de
fending the saloon. Democracy out
side of Nebraska is not ashamed of
prohibition, but, on the contrary, is
taking the lead. The democratic party
is not going to be the servant of the
liquor interests." -
But not one word of comfort or
recommendation for Senator Hitch
cock, although the meeting was pub
licly announced as a "democratic po
Mr. Bryan showed considerable f;re
during the first half of his address,
which was devoted to the liquor issue.
He showed religious fervor somewhat
of the evangelistic kind, but was dis
appointing in his defense of the dem
ocratic administration. He said Oma
ha is progressing on the liquor ques
tion and referred to his speech in
Washington hall Six years ago, when
he was chairman, committee, speaker
and all that was.
Will Surely Vote Dry.
"When I vote in Lancaster county
next Tuesday, I will vote for dry
candidates and I don't care what
party they may be identified with.
If two dry candidates are in oppo
sition, I will vote for the dryest of
the two," he said. He repeated much
of his prohibition address delivered
here last spring, stating that the sa
loon is against ithe best interests of
any community and he stated that no
St., Louis The Shoe City.
city advertises the numbers of saloons
in recounting its advantages.
"Why, arrest a man for drunken
ness why not place him outside of
a saloon as an advertisement?" he
"No matter what Omaha does, the
rest of the state will vote to drive
the liquor interests from the state,"
was another declaration.
Give Men Courage.
"Oh. God, give the men of Omaha
courage to take a stand against the
liquor interests. The brewers will
have to answer on judgment day!" he
"Turn around this way, Bill," yelled
a man toward whom Mr. Bryan's
back was turned.
In his consideration of the Wilson
administration. Mr. Bryan recited
some of the arguments which may be
found in the democratic textbook or
in the literature which is being dis
tributed by the democratic national
committee. He failed lamentably to
explain the fallacies of the democratic
administration, but did the best he
could to apologUe for the administra
tion. He repeated the old story about
"democrats and aristocrats," the
former eating the crumbs and the. lat
ter eating pie and cake.
Keeps Them In Good Humor.
He interpolated a repertoire of
funny stories, which put the audience
in good spirits and thus appealed to
their imagination. One story was
about a mother-in-law. The son-in-law
was asked whether he wanted
her cremated or buried and he said,
"both," because he wanted to take
no chances. Another story was about
a mother who was buying a coffin for
her son. "Want any trimmings?"
asked the mortician. "No, that was
what he died of," replied the mother.
Mr. 1 Bryan referred to Hughes,
Roosevelt, Cannon, Depew, reaction
aries, wool, prosperity- hides, Mexico,
Lusitania and a tew other things.
"A republican farmer is now re
ceiving as much for the hide of a
steer as he formerly received for the
whole steer," was his way of explain
ing democratic "prosperity."
Wall Street and Labor.
He told how the democrats gave
Wall Street knock-out drops and en
abled 400,000 workingmen a chance to
enjoy the comforts of home by pass
ing an "eight-hour law." He referred
to Charles E. Hughes as a "promi
nent republican," and said the Mexi
can situation resolved itself into the
demands or certain American specu
lators, asking the home folks to help
them make good in their gamblers'
chance in that country.
Mr. Bryan made an appeal for sup
port, of President Wilson and the
democratic congressional nominee of
this district, but would not ask for
support for Senator Hitchcock or
Keith , Neville or any other "wet"
Quinby and Dunn.
L. J. Quinby And I. J. Dunn spoke
until Mr. Bryan arrived from the
South Side. Vitriolic reference was
made to the alleged attempt of the
liquor interests to monopolize the
speaking places of the city. Mr. Dunn
voiced a eulogy ot Mr. Bryan and
hurled anathemas at the liquor inter
ests. He also asked Charles E.
Hughes .what he would have done if
he were president.
Lysle I. Abbott - (introduced Mr.
Bryan as a man "Who gave the coun
try the greatest president since Abra
ham Lincoln." ..

in committee room No. 19, directly
over the lieutenant governor's office,
during the session of the legislature, a
blind pig was being operated.
"There has never been a session of
the Kansas legislature when the hotels,
in Topeka were not a clearing house
for bootleggers, where the legislators
went to hibernate with their liquor. s
"I do not drink intoxicating liquor
of any kind; but I have bought liquor
all over the state of Kansas, and all
about the state house during sessions
of the legislature, and I have even
bought liquor from a man who works
in the governor's office."
Not True in Kansas.
The speaker declared that though
Governor Capper has been advising
Nebraska to vote dry and increase its
chucch population, the church popula-
tion of Kansas under prohibition had
been going steadily down, so that
while in 1905 the state was fifteenth
in church population, it is now twenty
ninth in the union in church popula
tion. "The question tonight," said Con
well, "is whether Bill Bryan wants
you to vote for the prohibition amend
ment so that he can run for president .
on the prohibition ticket in 1920. '
Haven't you had enough of Bill Bryan
yet? He started back in 1896 with a
paramount issue which was free silver,
and since that time he has been hunt
ing new paramount issues every few
years. He takes off his paramount
issues as a lady takes off a lavaliere
and coolness is
largely the result
of its two years'
