Is tn th . na ture of forcible possession and In no man ner change th legal right of th member of th contending boards. " There wa no consent or refusal on th part of th old board to turn over the offlc to th gov ernor' appointees. At ' a meeting of th board la th afternoon before tt wa known who had been appointed, a resolution wa adopted authorizing and directing the city ottorney to take such, actios js be might deem proper and necessary' to 'protect the member of tbe old board In their ' right to the office held by them. Within half n hour after th action ao taken and ad journment of th board th governor' ap pointee entered th offlc while It wa la leave. . Tha mavor. accomoaalnfl bV th city attorney thereupon entered, the offlc for th purpose of ascertaining th situation and was Informed by Mr. Wright and Mr. Broatch that they, together with Mr. Thomas and Mr. Bpratlen bad been ap pointed member of tb board by th gov ernor and submitted to th mayor . their commission for bis inspection. The mayor responded b had no doubit that the com miaslons were signed by th governor, but he could not recognise thetn as member ( tb board. Mr. Wright then mad on motion, which th mayor refused to enter tain or consider. Th mayor stated that he could not act with them aod would therefor retire. , . It waa suggested by me a I entered th offlc that th member of tha old board be called together by the mayor at early as 10 o'clock tomorrow morning for the pur poev of considering th demand of th member of th new board, and either con sent or refuse to comply whh tb same. This waa not satisfactory to Mr.' Wright, who acted aa spokesman for the members of th new board, to which I .replied that tb possession taken would1 then' b consid ered a forcible poeseeslchV-," , "Soon after the mayor had retired h had an lntervlar, a I am Informed, with Governor Savage at the Millard . hotel aod was" told In substance by th governor than ba proposed to seat th members ap pointed by him if It took the entire mil itia ef the state to do IU Mayor Moorea said la reply that there would b no neee. alty for extreme actlod, aa he a not On favor. Of violence, or any dlaturbaace of the peace. Mayor Moore may not b an angel, but he certainly l no a black aa a i somstime painted. No on who, knows hi army record will question hla iearleianea, but ia thi matter I think he acted moat wisely and discreetly. It would have been a great injury to Omaha to have It reported throughout tb country that there waa a conflict between th. mayor .and nolle on on eid and the governor and mUltla on the other. If there is any one thing more than another that demonstraUs the cor rectness of local self-government sad th Justice of the original decision of th su preme court In favor of home rule It 1 tbe secret and arbitrary and proposed vloleut manner of the governor tn seating bis own appointees for the "purpose of controlling the police and fire department of the city of Omaha. . - . -"Is regard to the action of t old board contesting the right of th member ef th new board proceeding la g peaeeabi and orderly way will b taken la tbe court to vindicate and establish their eoateation. Thi will be done by an action. In th nature 'of quo warranto.' I have ao doubt about the ultimate outcome of auch an action It law and Justice are to prevail. The queatlons which will be raised In tha proposed action are not In aa? iu6ar covered or determined by the recent de cision of the supreme court lu th caae of Wright against Eavage. lu Ifct..t& deol alon tn this caae clearly recognizee tb right of at least one member of the old board to hold his fSo and la express terms declares tht th Judgment in tba Moores case la rea adjudlcai ao far aa the rights of th members of ths eld board are concerned for the term to which they bad been appointed. CcuiiBtiisluuer Kennedy, who waa one of the defendants In the Ken nedy case, obtained a Judgment In his favor for th term which he Is siiii occupying. His term of office, wtjih waa In eootre veray before the supreme court. Will not eiplr until April. 1S2J. Notwithstanding this fact aud botwHbatanding ths exprs.s declaration of the auprem eourt la his favor Governor Savage has appointed an other peraoa to take hla plao before his term eipirsa and then declared In subatanc that h would remove Kennedy sad seat his own sppotnte though the streets of Omaha ahould be deluged with blood.

It at tins tn me that it Is now merely a question abetter (he changed Vltes cf the Judges of the supreme court kre to prevail or whether tbe solemn Judgment f that Court hall control. "Th great barrier aad preventive of an archy la this cw.ijt are th Judgments of ur courts and th respect of th. people for uch .Judg ment. If courts ran break away from their own Judgment and overturn them merely beefcua the Judges have changed their views regarding the law on which tuch Judgment were baaed wbst ran w expert from the common people? The result will be In a little time tbat Judgment of eourt will have a more consideration or respect than edicts Issued from street .corner. "For the present without regard to their legal right so to do, the member of tb txMrd appointed by th governor will have control of the fire and police department. Th governor's board being tn possession and assuming to act will bo th board d facto. As such It will be tbe duty of the chief Of police, the chief of the fire de partment and th men of these depart ment to obey tb order of the governor' board. The mayor, however, whe 1 by law ex-offlcl chairman of the board, will hot act with or In any way recognlx the governor' board."
