Spcnklnc Incidentally of the proceedings
f the last session of the legislature , ho re-
erred to the disappearance of Senator
I'nylor. This aroused Snrndcr and other
ndepcodcnt leaders on the platform nnu in
ho audience , nnd there was another stormy
ccno , lasting a mlnuto or two. Somebody
asked :
"Who stole Taylorl"
"I don't know , " replied Judee Crounso.
You people [ mcaninir the Independents ]
brought him to Lincoln and placed him on
ale. I don't know who bought him , "
Legislation on Trusts.
"My friend complains about trusts. Did
10 over Introduce n bill aimed at trusts ?
Does ho remember that the republican party ,
vhlch has had control of the government for
so many yeara , and which he charges with
to much corruption. Is the only party thai
ras tried lo reach the trusts ? "
Ho read the antl-lrusl law introduced in
he last legislature of Nurasua , nnd re-
'erred to n committee of which "D n the
Joustitutlon Sbrader" was chairman nnd
wns reported for indefinite postponement ,
tie nlso cito'l other bills airacd at corpora-
lions introduced in the legislature and post
poned by the Inuepenaent leelslntors.
There was contlnuons cheering for several
minutes at tbo conclusion of Judge Crounsa's
opening address , after which General Van
Wyck was introduced by Cbuirmnn Magoon.
i'ho Independent candidate was warmly re-
colvcu. n number of men nud women In the
audience becoming enthusiastic in their ex-
pro slons of Joy.
Ulniculty In Grttlng Started.
In openinc Mr. V n Wvclc said ho would
Ike to tinve his opponent explain lo Iho au
dience whal ho muanl bo debased currency.
Tudee Crounso accommodated him , repeai-
ng in subslanco some of his former declara
tions. The republicans cheered and the in
dependents hissed.
"Now , " said the spenKer , 4 > l am not hero
Tor the purpose ot nbusing anvoorty. The
dirt which my opponent has tnrown'at me I
will allow lo lie at my feet. "
Ho would like to ask his friend if heal
ono time was nol in favor of llal money ,
homebody in tbo audience tried to enter into a
discussion with the speaker , nnd there was
another interruption. Oraer being restored
the speaker said he would like to know the
justice of the procosdinc whereby the bond
holder got his intcresl In gold while the sol
dier who fought for his countrv wns paid in
greenbacks. Referring to monopolies , ho
said :
Souio Morn on Trust" .
"All the trusls In the United States have
grown up under the administrations of the
old partlo ? . The law which the republicans
have passed ngalnst the trusts is strong
enoucn 1 alwn.vs.said thai but you repub
licans didn't mean lo enforce 11 , did you ?
You had n sugar Uust Did your party <
which bad tno power , try to ehsck It ? You
are opposed to trusts , are you ? By word of
mouth , that's nil. "
Ho spoke of Claus Spreckles , who , ho said ,
is ihe pretended enemy of the sugar trust ,
induced the people of 'Philadelphia to give
nlm fU,500,000 to put up a factory In thatcilv.
Spreckles erected the factory and afterwards
sold It to the sugar trust for an advancu of
three jr fojr mllllo&s.
"Now , wasn't that a violation of the law ?
It's the same way with all tno trusts. "
Ills Lnclslatite KeeorU.
"My opponent , the Juag-o , has referred to
my record. Does no remember that I advo
cated a bill forfeiting 15,000,000 acres of
Southern Pacific railway land and fought it
through ? Wns thnl bill of no benotil lo Iho
American people ? Does ho rctnetabcr my
efforts to 1:1 : alto railroad lands subjccl to
taxation , and how 1 succeeded ? 1 didn't do
anytulng for the American people ,
eh ? I Introduced a bill In the
Nobraiun legislature a ereat many years
ago reducing the amount of Interest from 12
to S per cent. In order to got it Ihraugb we
bad to compromise on 10 per cent , and because -
cause I accepted thai , knowing that if J
attempted to put the bill through at S per
cent il would fail altogether , it was charged
thai I was not In favor ot lowering the rate
of interest. I Introduced another bill In tno
legislature , nlso many years ago , reducing
passenger milence to S cents on regular
trains and 2 cents on ifreight trains. My
friend seems to forget these and other
measures of n similar nature thai I helped lo
pass. "
Hero n copy of the Daily State Journnl
was produced , nnd he read whal purported

him ib 1S01.

vened at the fair grounds to hear the Whitehead -
head and Kern joml deoato today. Hon.
Mark M. Neoves introduced Mr. Whiteuead ,
who ut once entered lulo a clear nnd logical
speech. He effectually showed tbo Incon
sistencies of people's party doctrine
and in particular Mr. Kem's
a&clrine. The statement ttiattbis country
is on-the verge of moral , political and material
'
terial ruin was raaclo to nppen'r very r lcu-
lous by his authentic statistics. In his
tariff lallc Mr. Whiter-end had the advantage
of results at his disposal in showing bow
this country has prospered unaer a protec
tive system and bo made use of them In n
forcible manner. Histnli < on the monetary
question met with general approval among
business men regardless of politics.
Mr. Kem took up bis tluo with funny sayIngs -
Ings , slang phrases and a general defense of
his record. His assertion to the effect that
this county is not la n prosperous condition
bad about tbo same effect upon bis audience
as old the statements following , thnl Instead
of the farmers having soup for din
ner they baa uo spoon , nnd
because a tiger cub was Jound
running with the cow was no evidence that
the cow was mother to the CUD. Ho charged
tno republican party with causing tbo late
Indian war ana being responsible for the low
price of wheat. His reform schemes were
Invariably In the interests of some country
other tbuu America. Ho feared tujtalr and
water would soon be bottled up to tneiBborer.
Mr. Whlteboad in closlus the discussion
completely met nnd refuted any attempt Mr.
Kem madd to gain a point ana effectually
exposed his record on such measures as Iho
Pickler banking bill , gas bill , etc. His en
tire speech was dignified and gentlemanly ,

: of n How.
The councilmnnlao committee Investiga
tion which has been In progress during tbo
past week has closed. The curtain was rung
down on iho last net last tilght. The Investi
gation wns not completed , however , but tbo
curUln wont down , nttcndcd by lots of red
fire nud slow music ,
Omnbn peoulo who hnvo attended Investi
gations In the past hnvo been called upon to
wltr.oss many wild scf-nos , but they never
vleuui ono that could hold a candle to Iml
night's session.
The members of iho committee , the In
terostcd parties , the lawyers , the members
ot Iho council and a lobby full of spectators
wcro present. Chairman Lo'.vry of the com
raittco called the session to order and invited
the mayor to take the witness stand. The
mayor responded to the call , and up to that
point everything was a * serene as a May
mornlne , but there was a black cloud hover
ing over the scene and the rumblings of Iho
approaching storm were soon hcaid In the
dlstanco.
Mr. Prince of the committee staled to the
mayor that ttie , investigation had reached a
point where it was absolutely necessary lor
Lhe committee to know iwo things before
any further progress could bo made. The
committee must hovu the imrnts of tbp
parties who had told the mayor that the re
port of the committee would be a whitewash ,
and also the names of the parties who had
told the mayor that Beiudorft had con
tributed ? JOub to the defeat of Liuiugor and
to the election of Gushing.
Ho Would Not Aimucr.
With reference to tno flrst point the mayor
declared that he would not answer , while
upon the other point he could not remem
ber ; there wore numerous persons who had
spoken about It , In fact , ho said , the air
was full of rumors.
Chairman Lowry iald that when the mayor
was on the witness stand Wednesday nlgl l
bo had stated thai ho would furnish Iho in
formation ut the next meeting of the commit
tee. Georze P. Bcmis was the second wit
ness who had refused to nnswer the ques
tions of the committee in an iuvoiUuation
which wns brouuhl on by himself. Conllnu-
ine. Chairman Lowry said :
"Mr. Mayor , H jou refuse to answer it
must bo baid that you arc in the road just at
present. There was Jacob Counsman , who
could not remember the names , though he
told them to Or. Mercer. If il has reached
a pass where a witness will not testify wo
mlgnt as well resign. "
This was tha first Ibing Ihnt indicated that
the face of ths moon WAS streaked with
blood , but tbo other Indications followed in
rapid succession.
Tho"maybr slardd"Vhal "tblnirs looked as'
though ho was the party who was being in
vestigated , instead ol the parlies whom the
committee should hunt qut.
The mayor insisted that the air was full of
rumors and that the motnoord of the commit
tee bad heard them.
"Pardon me , Mr. Mayor , " said Mr. Prince ,
"we are not Investigating the air. "
The mayor remarked that tbo architect had
said that ho bad contributed money and why
not put.him on thosland )
"Will you , or will you not give Ihose
names ) " usked Mr. Mcl carlo.
UI will not , " answered Iho rnavor.
' 'Then , Mr. Chairman , " continued Mr.
McLearis. " 1 have this resolution which 1
will introduce , though I halo to do so. "
The resolution was handed up lo Ihc chair
man und It read line this :
Whereas. His honor , the tnavor , made a
statement on thu Witness stand Wednesday

pcisoni had told him durliij the day , that no

Council Wanted to Talk.
City Attorney Connell was upon his feet
before the chairman had JinUned reading tbo
document.
"Bit down , " said Chairman Lowry , bul ho
did nol sit.
He did nol sll down , bul Instead started to
talk. This much it is known thut ho said :
'In thointercstof the taxpayers of Omaha ,
I desire lo ask n few quesiions of witnesses
who are present and " But thu rest of bis
remark : ! were losi In the tumuli.
"Sit down. " commanded Chairman Lowry ,
"or I will order Ibo scrgeant-at-anns to put
you out. "
Above the din of the conflict came a sound
which evidently was the attorney's voice
uniting up among the pictures In the celling.
U sounded like this ; "I wanl to make a few
respeolful ana ptoper remarks , "
"Sll dowul" again yelled the chairman ,
bul Mr. Connell did nol care 10 sit down jusl
ihen. i
"Sergennt-at-arms , tnko him away I" com
manded tbo chairman , pointing to , tno at
torney.
'As president or this council. " said Mr.
Davis , who was watching the proceedings ,
"I command you to'ao your duty. "
"Are you a member of this'committee ) "
asked Mr. Council.
"I am the president or the council , nnd
again 1 command iho sorgeanl-ut-arius to do
hi > duty1 ; responded Mr. Davis.
Wouldn't Ito I'ut out ,
The sorgeanl-ul-arms started to do ns told ,
apd grasping Mr. Council by tbo arm , tugged
away , trying to got him outside of the lull.
The little icllow was not equal to thu occa
sion , and Mr , Connell remained In hU track * .
The mayor hud watched the proceedings ,
dud nl Ibis point , addressing Mr. Davis ,
sold : t'lf you are n member of thin coin in It-
toe , thon. an the executive ofilcer of the city ,
J am also. "
"Sit down , sir , " commanded .Vjr. Davis ,
"you have no voice In Ihis thing. "
"We'll tee , " quickly reapomled the mayor ,
and turning to the sorgeant-ai.arm * , who
had not lei go of Mr. Connell's coat , haid :
"You go , sir , aud call the police and tne
patrol wagon. "
i'be sergeanl-ut-arms wns in n dilemma.
"Take Ibal man from Ibo rconi , " com
manded Ibo prcsldenl of Ibe council.
"Call Ibe police , " commanded the mayor.
The peico. oftlcer of the council looked at
both of his superiors , eelzed his bul nnd
rubbed Irom the room.
Then the trouble broke out anew. Mr.
I'rinco moved the adoption of the resolution.
U wii seconded by Mr. McLoarle.
'Iho unyor tried to talk whlln Chairman
Lowry continued to pouna a hold in iho pol
ished oak detU.
The mpyor said that bo was Inllv con
vinced that It was a wbltowatn committee
and thai It was appointed for tha purpose ol
bIlltllnc him and uinolhvriae the damnable
uburc s that bad been mado.
Attorney Council was liking ai the name
time , voicing the sentiments expressed , " '
thoinnvor. \
The chairman , In reply to what the ma\
was sny Ing , remarked ! "You can talk
you want to , but you can't ride over tn\ \
oven If you nro together hand and glove
Tbo notion of you two parties convinces mo
that you , Mr. Connell , nro the portou who
tundo these whitewash statement * to jou ,
Mr. Homl . nud you , Mr. Council , hnvo not

All of the purtles were spnn-lng for wind
mid during ibo momentary lull the rosolmlon
was adopted.
Oiieo more Mr. Connell Insisted that ho
was ronvluiAul tbnt Ihu cotntulttco tntondcd
to sptcad whitewash.
The remark was caught by-Mr. McLcarlo ,
who nt once denounced Mr. Connell us a
Uur.
Uur."If
"If It was not so , " Insisted Mr. Connell ,
"you wouid have let the witnesses gone upon
thostnnd. "
"Yns. and you nnd the mayor , " said Chair
man Lowry , "would have continued to do-
famu the reputation of hunoit men with
your damnable stories that you Iloat through

"You can't smother this and you will all
land In court , " answered Mr. Council.
Tb n tno meeting broUo and tba members

Half nn hour later the council chamber

Lhe anti-snapper * use It for the support of an
Independent nomination for the mayoralty
nnd other cHy oftlcinlsj The antl-snappon ,
if they do act Independently , will uaso their
action upon the ground that a contest for
two city tlrkots hero will bring out n larger
vein tor the head of the national l.ckcU
John Jcrolonon , a member of the indepen
dent ucmocrnt committee that Is to dccldo
the ijucMlon , said to-iay : "If there wcro
simply the local conditions to look to , I
should say at once that a third Itckot Is ad
visable. But how will the country nl largo
lojk at the matter ) 1 thlnl : that two rival
tickets would urine out this heaviest possible

campaign , llut how will the country at
laru'o have It ! Where would It weaken the
cuse ! This is the exact status of Iho case
nnd it is tto lundumuntul question to be de
cided. "
Ex-Secretary Whitney said : "I have
never been nulc to convince myself that It Is
notn uood thing to name a second demo
cratic local ticket. But I don't lnovr
wether It is best or not. I know In I s3
when thiro wns but one ticket , the national
ticket suffered bauly nnd Mr. Grace wns
elected by n bore a.OOO votes. A local Dghv
brings out a vole which otherwise does not
appear. Mr. Corolonon himself , KVS that it
made no difference to him whatever. The
only way it might hurt us Is in the country ,
whcra the people believe there Is n lot or
trading colng on here , and It might Injure us
in that way. "
Kx.Mayor ( irnco's Opinion.
Ex-mayor Grace , leader of the anti-snap
pers , expressed himsoli thus ; "Thu battls
Is a desperate ouo In Now' York state. * The
Indications are bad. The Uemncr.itlo situ
ation is very much complicated by local
causes. There Is no doubt that a verv'strong-
'
clement exists in tbo city which Is 'anxious
to run.a lo al tirkot in opposition to the one
that will bo named by Tammany hall. If
the < o who have charco of Mr. Cleveland's
canvass are of the opinion that it will Injure
thu national ticket if n third local ticket \a \
nominated , I Kupposo that the winncsof these
men will have to bo respected , although such
opinion does not nijroa with inlno. I shall
certainly withdraw from any movement hav
ing a third ticuot in view. It must not be
said that I or any of the friends of Mr.
Cleveland last winter Imporlloil his election
by any action wo might nave taken locally.1
Finally Tarumany's chieftain , Richard
Crokor. was seen und questioned. "Wo of
course know about tbo movement to nomi
nate a second democratic ticket. 1 have
nothing to say about thnt matter now , ana , "
smilingly , "My boy , I don't thinli you can

Tbo oolmon "was expressed nt the demo

be but one democratic candidate for mayor
In the city m the forthcoming elco'.Ion. The
