Schmader Cuts Loose.
Schmader did not unleash his full
fury until the second round. The

jab and left hook, as Burke rushed

round by tapping the Chicagoan on
the jaw and followed this blow by

Rostan Beats Sudenberg.
The Johnny Sudenberg-Navy Ros
tan bout was the best contest of
the evening, although scheduled as
the semi-windup. It was a battle be
tween a boxer and a fighter and in
fighting played an important part.
Rostan excelled at long distance,
having the reach on his opponent,
but the infighting of Sudenberg was
superior to that of the winner. It
Was a .good scrap, in spite of the
fact that Referee Fitzgerald was
forced to "break" the men frequent
ly. ,
During the second round, Rostan
opened an old cut over Sudenberg's
glimmer, which seemed to bother the
local boy in the early part of the
bout. Sudenberg's best rounds were
the fifth and sixth, when he jabbed
his opponent with snappy lefts and
succeeded in' landing good blows to
Navy's mid-section.
In the final frame the Illinois box
er opened by hooking a right to Su

two lefts to the head. The Omahan,
however, weathered the storm and in
good fashion.

To the Voters of
""Vi! jf
I am seeking the nomination for City Commissioner
at the coming primaries, April 5. I realize it is impossible
to meet any considerable number of the voters before that
date. Accordingly, I am endeavoring to come to your no
tice through the daily papers of the city, and by this means
to call to your attention some qualifications wliich I be
lieve I possess, and which result from considerable ex
perience and a large interest in the welfare of the city.
I favor a clean, active and economical business admin
istration of the affairs of the city. My experience has
been such as to enable me to help to give such an admin
istration. My interest in Ihe general welfare of the city
and my business and property interests therein are such
as to assure active and persistent efforts along such lines,
should I be selected as a Commissioner of this city. For
the last thirty years I have been in the retail businessin
the South Side, and have been always taking an active
part in the civic and municipal affairs of my city before
its annexation with Omaha; and since its annexation, I
have been no less an active booster for the Greater Omaha.
I have hopes and an ambition to help to make Omaha one
of the best cities in this country, and a place where gather
ings of large proportions and conventions will certainly
come. Not only this, but a city where people will be both
glad and proud to live. I feel that, such things in behalf
of the city may be brought about by the right sort of offi
cials, whose interest in the general welfare of the city is
greater than merely holding an office.
I realize that it is not possible to call your attention to
any considerable number of desirable improvements which,
in my judgment, may be easily accomplished and brought
about if the right kind of officials are selected to adminis
ter the affairs of the city. I sum up my promises in the
slogan "Onward Omaha," and I assure you full apprecia
