SOUTH OMAHA NEWS.
In hie monthly report for October Chief
Carroll of the police department recom
mends that a number of police telephone
stations bo established In different parts
of the city so that communication can be
held with oincera on their beats. Further
than this Uie chief , eays that such a system
would Insure vigilance on the part of the
patrolmen , os he would Insist upon each
officer calling up police headquarters at
.stated Intervals. A large amount of ter
ritory has to bo covered by a few men and
a great saving In tlmo could bo made by
placing such a system In service. Busldca
this , fire alarms could be sent In from these
patrol boxes at any time of the day or night.
WhlTo the present telephone system ex
tends to all parts of the city , ofllccrs do
not like to wake .residents up at night to
use a telephone , nnd as most of the busi
ness places close early there la nothing for
a policeman to do but walk to headquarters
when he has anything Important to report.
Now when the chief desires to communl-
cato with an officer on his beat ho has to
drive around In his buggy until he finds
him and this takes a great deal of time.
The chief recommends that these boxes
be placed In the following localities : Twen
ty-fourth and D streets , Twenty-fourth and
N streets , Twentieth and S streets , Twen
ty-eighth ana Q streets , Thirty-second and
L streets and If possible one near the Hock
Island depot.
When the matter was brought to his at
tention yesterday Manager Holland of the
Nebraska Telephone company said that the
service contemplated would cost but little.
It the city furnished the patrol boxes the
telephones would be Installed nnd main
tained for a coet of about $3 per montb
each. This would bo at the regular party
line business rate. As no more than four
telephones will bo placed on a single cir
cuit , It woufd take two circuits to handle
the business properly , as Chief Carroll has
recommended .that- six patrol box. stations
bo established. For a two-party circuit the
rate would bo $3,00 per month , for a three-
party circuit $3.25 per month and for a
four-party circuit $3 per month for each
station. v
The idea Is cpnsldcrcd a good ono and a
number of city qfjflclals appear to bo In favor
of It. It Is assorted that the total cost will
not amount toua.ny thlng as compared with
the convenlenxyfjja such a eastern. ,
* Park People.
HcsldcuO of' brown "park arc delighted
at the prospect of obtaining flro protection.
The question of erecting a flro hall In the
Second ward whs brought up by Henry
Mies a number of years ago , but for lack
of funds the project had to bo abandoned.
Ever since P. J. Barrett has been in the
council he has been talking about the mat
ter at Interval's , but It was only recently that
he obtained the support of enough mem
bers to carry the project through. At
Wednesday night's meeting of the city
fathers a resolution was passed directing
the purchase of a lot on Twentieth street ,
near Q street , the purchase prlco being
$323. In speaking about this action yeatcr-
day the mayor said that If the property
was all right and sufficient funds were at
hand to complete the purchase he would
offer no objection. If the lot Is bought the
next thing will bo the erection of a suita
ble flro hall and the purchase of the equip
ment needed. Just where the money to
pay for all this Is to como from Is not evi
dent , but no doubt some arrangements can
be made. One resident of the ward sug
gested that as some of tbo breweries owned
costly buildings In the neighborhood of the
site of the proposed flro hall It might not
be unreasonable to suppose that the orew-
erles will purchase a team and present It
to the city , the same as the packers did
when the fire hall In the Third ward was
established. If this Is done the city can
probably see its way to complete the Im
provement.

ISSUES INVOLVED IN THIS CAMPAIGN
Intelligent Voter Tclln AVhy Uuvu
Mercer .Should He Kloe.tcd and
Why Ills Opponent In Unworthy
of Dcociit Men' * Support.
OMAHA , Nov. 3. G. II. Hitchcock , Ksq. ,
Omaha : My Dear Sir I am in receipt ol
one of your Illustrated requests for my sup
port of your ambition to bo congressman
from this district. In which you claim my
support as a populist because you have re
ceived the fusion nomination for that of-
Uce.
Uce.I
I have a high regard for you personally ,
Mr. Hitchcock , and have- been a reader o (
your newspaper for many years. I cannot ,
however , give you my support at this time ,
as against ( Mr. iMorcer , for reasons which I
believe , after election , you 'Will ' agree arc
entirely good.
I was a populist until a year ago. I was
a populist because I 'believed what yoursel !
and a great many other public men an
nounced as the truth. I believed firmly , two
years ago , that If William AIcKlnley were
elected president of the United States that
commercial ruin would como upon this
country. I nnd that you and the other
orators were either mistaken or purposely
attempted to mislead the people. Instead ol
the country going to ruin , U has steadily
Improved every day since 'McKlnley ' was
elected president , and stands today where
It stood In 1892 , when Benjamin Harrison
was president of the United States.
" > ! Cannot , * therefore , accept your predic
tions at this time and I am unwilling In view
of this exporlenco to bellovo that what you
predict will occur In case a republican con
gress Is elected.
IlnKn tcd with Democratic
I have been pretty thoroughly disgusted
with the democratic party many times In
my life. I have never known of a single
campaign when that party adopted a gen
uine and sincere platform. In every cam
paign within my recollection the democratic
party has attempted to win votes by bring
ing up false Issues and misrepresenting Its
own purposes as well as maligning the op
position. When you say that the McCleary
bill Is a republican measure , I know that
the statement Is false , because no republican
state or district convention had declared
Itself In favor of this bill or any other
currency bill pending 'before ' congress.
You are simply resorting to the tactics
of that party , and I am not frightened by
your hysterical double column comments
upon that measure.
In your personal platform you ask my
support because you have announced that
you are In favor of the free coinage of sil
ver at the ratio of 16 to 1 , and yet It Is not
many years nlnce I read editorials from your
pen denouncing this Idea as the "free silver
fallacy , " and later , I remember when you
came out with a double leaded editorial ,
suggesting as a compromise that silver be
coined at the ratio of 21 to 1. You can
hardly expect me to believe that a man
whose money Ideas are so vacillating Is a
safe representative of this district In con
gress.
You say that you are In favor of the "de
feat of the bills now pending In congress
providing for the Issuance of more Inter
est-bearing bonds. " Frankly , Mr. Hitchcock ,
do you suppose that the people of this coun
try are BO wanting In Intelligence as to b
mislead by you In this sentence ? If such
bills are pending , why did not the three
parties which nominated you for congress
declare themselves upon the question ?
Shy on Connlntenuy.
What bills are now pending In congress
providing for the retirement of greenbacks ,
treasury notes and silver certificates , In
place of which It Is proposed to Issue either
bondn or national bank notes , and If there
are any such bills pending what responsi
bility has the republican party for such
pending bills ?
You are now extremely solicitous for the
smaller banks , and yet , remembering your
vicious attacks upon banks and bankers dur
ing the last two years , I have no more faith
In your consistency upon the bank nnd paper-
currency question than In your consistency
upon the coin question.
There are five paragraphs of your plat
form which , In iny opinion , are traitorous
and unworthy of any American citizen. If
I had no other reason for refusing to sup
port you for congress , these flve paragraphs
would bo sufficient. You know that In each
of these paragraphs you seek by contemp
tible Innuendo and exaggeration to dim ths
glory of the page of history which has been
made during the administration of William
McKlnley. I cannot characterize this con
duct without resorting to Invective , nnd as >
this letter Is Intended to be a friendly one ,
I will pass that subject over by simply sayIng -
Ing that any man or any party seeking po
litical advantage or promotion by means of
malicious attacks upon the government at
a time when peace negotiations are pending
and not concluded , deserves the oblivion
which I believe will follow these efforts.
You know that the yellow journals are giv
ing at this moment aid , comfort and hope
to the yellow flag of the enemy and their
mouthlngs arc delaying the proceedings in
Paris.
Ilcllherntely MlnIeiulIiiK.
The last three paragraphs in your plat
form are net up for the sole purpose
of misleading the people. You
know that no republican platform
has declared ) n favor of an entangling al
liance with England or any other monarchy ;
against < the postal savings banks ; In opposi
tion to the election ot senators by the direct
vote of the people or against the plan ot
the Initiative and referendum.
You also know that David II. Mercer , the
republican nominee for congress In this dis
trict , has a bill pending In the lower house
for the establishment of a system of postal
savings banks nnd that ho has voted In the
house several times In favor of bills pro
viding for the election of senators by the
direct \ote of the people , but you seek l-y
Indirection to make people believe that
you favor and he opposes this measure.
Your platform Ignores all the live issues
of tbo day. It Is not the democratic plat
form , upon which you say you stand. It la
not the populist platform , which you say
you are ready to defend , and It Is not the
free silver republican platform , which you
say you are ready to defend. It Is your
Idea of a brief , vote-catching statement ,
wherein you seek to avoid the direct re
sponsibility ot great Issues and fool the
voters.
Where Do Von Stnmlf
Where do you stand on Hawaiian annexa
tion ? What policy will you favor in regard
to the Philippine Islands , Porto Rico and
Cuba ? Where do you stand on the Nlc-
araguan canal question ? How will you vote
on pension legislation ? Are you still of the
opinion that the soldiers ot the late re
bellion and their widows and orphans are
government paupers ? Do you favor govern
ment ownership ot railways , of the telegraph
and telephone ? Are you In favor of pro
tection or free trade ? Would you vote for
the Increase of the standing army ? Are
you In favor of n great navy ?
1 observe also that you boost of being tno
son of a republican senator , who was In the
senate when Nebraska republicans favored
free silver. How did your father vote on
the so-called "crlrao of 1873 ? "
Why did you leave the republican party ?
Was It because you were defeated as a can
didate for the city council or was It be
cause the republican party refused to sub-
sldlzo your paper ? * i
Were you a republican or were jou a
democrat when you sold out two coluinna
of your paper dally to the republican * tate
committee for the pittance of $201. Have
you ever , until the present campaign , sup
ported honestly nnd sincerely the entire
democratic ticket ? In fact , did you ever , In
all your life , vote or support a straight
democratic ticket ?
How About Hartley nnd Ilollti ?
Did you or did you not borrow .noney froia
Joseph Hartley , the late state treasurer ?
What was the consideration for that ? 2,000
check , signed by you , found among the as
sets of a defaulting city treasurer.
You say you left the republican party thir
teen years ago. To what party did you give
allegiance during the tlmo you conducted
the World , nnd afterward the World-Herald ,
as an Independent newspaper.
Did you over discover that you were a
democrat prior to the campaign of 1896 ?
IB It not a fact that you became a free silver
man only after the silver barons of the west
contributed funds to the support of your
paper , and Is It not true that up to the early
days of 1896 you were opposed to every prin
ciple of populism , democracy and of free
silver republicanism , which you now pretend
tend to advocate ? Would you now be a fu-
slonlst If you owned your own newspaper
and had not received this nomination for
congress ?
Why did you fight Holcomh when ho was
the populist nominee in 1894 and support
him In 189C.
Why did the Jacksonlan club unanimously
repudiate you In 1895 ?
Hilton n a Sample.
Why do list Frank Hilton , late oil Inspector
specter , as a republican defaulter , and at
the same time hire him to manage your
campaign In Washington county ?
You will excuse my inqulsltlvcness under
the circumstances , but I have been told that
you were greatly surprised to learn that I
am for Dave Mercer , and several of your ad
mirers have Been mo at your request. As
you acemcd eager to know what Is the mat
ter with me I have attempted In this com
munication to satisfy your curiosity and
also to obtain some light In regard to your-
eerf. C. JOHNSON.

Handier , Knlpy mill OtlicrM ArK'ie for
the .StrnlKiit Ticket.
The republican cally , under the auspices
of the Seventh Ward Republican club , held
at 1312 Park avenue last night , was at
tended by a largo number of enthusiastic
voters and after the transaction of some
routine club business J. J. Boucher spoke nt
some length. Ho urged the voters to sup
port the legislative nominees , as their elec
tion means the selection of a United States
senator from Douglas county to succeed Sen
ator Allen , who has not been able to rise
above the petty matters of party politics.
The election of a republican to succeed Sen
ator Allen means , the speaker declared , a
man who will be In sympathy with the re
publican administration and not working
against tbo best Interests of the country.
Relative to congressional matters , Mr.
Boucher said that the republicans have a
candidate , Dave Slorcer , who needs no In
troduction. He has erected his monuments
all over the district , In the way of an expo
sition , new pojtofflcfn , an Indian supply
depot and many other things. He 'Is a level
headed man , whose judgment Is-tho best
and who Is always found on Inn right side
of every question. Hitchcock at Washington
could do nothing , would have no weight and
bis election would be ono of the greatest
calamities that could befall this section ot
tbo country.
J. L. Kalev declared that h U for the
entire republican ticket , from top 10 bet
tom. While thuy may not all be Methodists
or Baptism they are all superior tu the
heat of tbr nominees on tht * populldt ticker
who favor cheap money , repudiation , damna
tion and soup houses. U has been the
s , the Intelligence and the great worth
of the republican party that has performed
all of the great deeds of the country. There
never has been an equal to It nnd the ques
tion is , Shall It be sustained In Its great
ness ? To bo a republican means being ft
'republican ' from the- first name to the last
on the ticket ttnd this Is the way that the
most of them will vote next Tuesday.
Mr. Kaloy declared he could not flee how
nny man In Omaha , republican , democrat or
populist , can refuse to vote for Dave Mer
cer for congress. Ho has accomplished nioro
for the district than have nil of the sunatorx
and congressmen ever sent from tbe state.
His usefulness has Just begun aud to retire
him now would bo suicidal to every Interest
of the district , county and city.
The speaker eulogized Judge Hnyward ,
who was designated as an able lawyer , a
man of sound judgment and n candidate
who can bo trusted after being elected.
F. C. O'Hnlloren , who was out doing duty
as a soldier during the recent war with
Spain , explained 'that the unsanitary condi
tions of the camps were not duo to lack ot
attention bj- the federal authorities , RS has
been reported , but were so on account of
natural causes and the topography of the
country.
The meeting closed with speeches by J.
0. Dctwcller nnd V. B. Walker , legislative
candidates , who predicted a sweeping re
publican victory at the polls next Tuesday.
nt Forent Unit.
A meeting of the fuslonlsts was held at
Forefit hall , Sixth and Pierce streets , last
evening. W. A. Poyntor. popocratlc can
didate for governor , was the principal
speaker and his speech was a repetition ot
what he had said at the previous meetings
of the campaign to attract votes to him
self. John Llddell , popocratlc candidate for
the legislature , also spoke and was followed
by C. J. Smyth. G. M. Hitchcock put In a
bid for some votes for himself. Ho devoted
considerable time to explaining away the
charge that ho was not cord.fal or sociable
and , thaj he did not remember his friends
when he passed , .tlicm. pji ho"streets. . 'J {
said that since carl'y'youth' hn'ha'd been BO
completely occupied With business trials that
ho knew but llttlo else. He- declared that

plants , flowers or shrubbery. "
