BLACKBURN INSISTS ON THE TEST OATH
Coasreaalenal Committee Chairman
- Also Refnse to 'I14 Other Con
dltloa Considered Infalr by
The conference between the candidates
for congressional . nomination brought Bo
results Wednesday afternoon. . It was held
at th office of W. F. Ourley, with Candi
date Cornish, Breen Snd Pratt present.
Mr. Mercer wss represented by Mr. -'Blackburn
and before the conference broke up
Mr. Gos of the county commute cam
In, but took no part tn tbe proceedings.
Before the candidates presented their ob
jection to lb arbitrary action of Mr.
Mercer' committee the chairman of that
committee stated tbat he was willing to
waive the payment of the $50 entrance
fee and would consent to consult upon the
Judges and clerks and th location of poll
The candidate then gave their principal
causes for objection, saying that upon tbelr
aid they , would waive tbe unjust appor
tionment, would nonsent to a convention
of delegates elected at primaries, would ac
cept tbe judges and clerks as agreed upon
by tbe joint committee with tbe distinct
understanding that it should not afford a
precedent. Then came th point on which
there wa no concession. , j ' ," '
Mr. Blackburn Insisted upon having the
name of the congressional candidates ap
pear upon the official ballot, With the
statement tbat a vote for tbe aandldatos
for delegates would be a vote for the con
gressional candidate whoso name sppeared
at th bead of the list. He also Insisted
upon the enforcement of the test oath, by
which restrictions unknown to the state
law would be laid upon tbe republican
voters. It , wa shown to him tbat tbls
test oath could not be enforced and a
section of tbe statute, which be had evi
dently overlooked, wa pointed out to him
making it mandatory upon th primary
election officer tp receive the vote of
every person registered a affiliating with
tbe party holding the primary election. - In
th face of this section ha atlll Insisted
upon the test oath. He would not yield
his position as cashier of the fund to be
created for the congressional primary and
insisted that the certificates of th elec
tion of delegates should be filed with him.
There wa no compromise upon these
points and th conference broke up. It Is
said tbat Mr. Blackburn , will make an
other effort to lead th candidate Into a
spirit more agreeable to being swallowed
before the call for the county and con
gressional convention Is Issued by the
Mr. Ooss said that th call Would be Is
sued Saturday before 12 p. m., a there
would be no time to lose after that date.
He further said that the committee had
not decided upon all of tbe places for hold
ing the primaries In tbe ward and pre
cincts and tbat all of the election officers
had not been seiiicii upva.
In the absence of Chairman Baldrtgs th
Judicial republican committee ha been
called by Captain H. B. Palmer to meet at
hi office In th Merchant National bank
building at I o'clock next Friday afternoon.
The meeting baa been called at tbe request
of four of th candidate for Judge Key
or' plac on tbe diatrlet bench, which, It
1 said on th best authority, will be va-k
cated tn time for tbe selection of th suo
ceeaor at the coming general election . In
November. . .
The four candidates requesting th call
of tbe committee are Judge J. H. Blair,
George A. Day, L. D. Holme and A. C.
Troup. A tbe Interested parties desire to
have the delegates to tbe Judicial conven
tion selected at the same time tbe dele
gate to th county and congressional con
ventions are voted for, the eall for th com
mute meeting could not be hetd back until

FIFTH WARD REPUBLICANS
Well Attended Meeting; Listens to th
Merit of the Meroer
At s well attended meeting of the Fifth
Ward Republican club last night tb fol
lowing resolution, Introduced bjr Bryc
Crawford, wa adopted: .
Resolved, That the republican of th
Fifth ward present the name of Mr. C. W.
DeLamatre to the county convention for
nomination to the office of county attor
ney; that we pledge our earneat efforts to
his nomination end election, ,
A motion to endorse J. B." Bruner for as
sessor was unanimously adopted. '
L D. Holmes, candidate for nomination
for district Judge, apok at length upon
the constitutional amendment which is to
provide for amending the constitution by
a vote of the majority of those voting upon
For the second time this season D. H.
Mercer failed to acknowledge or accept aa
invitation to attend a club meeting.
J. P. Breen referred to the Action of the
county committee of last Saturday, wblch
In effect turned the Judge and clerk of
the primary election over to Dave Mercer's
committee, and said:
We maintain that Mr. Blackburn's com
mittee has no right to Invade Douglas
county, Hut ha haa dune bo. He says that
he will supervise the selecting of the 121
delegatea from Douglas county. He may
aa well aay that the state committee can
apportion the delegatea from the several
counties to the various townships or from
any one county of the state. The congres
sional committee does not attempt to In
vade Washington or Sarpy counties. But
Mr. Blackburn said today that If the
county central committee attempts to hold
a separate primary and to elect delegates
to th congressional convention he will call
separate prlmarlea and not recognise tbe
delegates chosen by the county convention
or county primary.
Further than this, the Judge and clerk
the majority Mercer men are to apply a
teat oath. Theae boards may apply almost
any teat and the voter la at their mercy.
I deny the rights of any Judge to aak any
man who he la going to aupport at an elec
tion. The right to vote a secret ballot Is
one of the rights of American cltlsenahlp
and 1 deny the right of any man or aet of
men to Invade that secrecy. They cannot
extort more from him than I required by
the naked law.
We almply want what' fair. We want
no advantage of Mr. Mercer and will con
cede much to him. We are willing to fol
low him to the country, where we are a
well acquainted aa he u.
1 am aa sorry aa anybody that this
sqabble haa arisen, but we are all In earn
eat In our canvaaa and with . fair field and
no fifor may th beat man win, and 1 11
aupport him. ,
The apeaker concluded with a discussion
of national issues.
E. J. Cornish followed Mr. Breen. The
speaker said la part:
Why doe th congreselonal committee
desire to make a change? Mr. Mercer
named every member of that committee
ann v. nen ne wants to make a change It la
auaplcloue. No candidate but Mr. Mercer
knew that there was to be a delegation se
lected In Washington county when It was
done, but If any candidate should ask to
have S new selection there we might anger
eumcieni voters to give tne democrats a
majority. We have - therefore conceded
him that delegation. Down In Sarpy
county they attempted to do th same
thing. I told members of the committee
It was Illegal, but the postmaster aild It
wa customary and that It wa my mis
fortune If the congressional committee was
against me. We had a contest and I car
ried every precinct but one In Sarpy
1 have eight delegates from Sarpy
county. He has fifteen from Washington
county. If we have no county convention
In Douglas county his higher number will
be effective. We conceded that. Then
cornea the apportionment. Mr. Mercer has
appointed the postmasters of the county,
has scattered seeds and literature at gov
ernment expense, but In every case he has
followed the gift with a letter saying that
he expects the recipient's support. Recent
events have weakened him In Omaha with
the laboring population and he believes he
can do more with the farmers; therefore
he gives to the 1,200 votes In the county
forty delegatea and to the lO.floO votes In
the city seventy-three delegates. But we
have waived that. In 1901 Mr. Mercer made
the flrat trade with the country delegatea,
giving them three tlmea the number of del
egates they sre entitled to, but we cannot
resist because It Would nrohahlv alienate
enough votes to elect the democrat.
wnen tnat committee has allied with It
every Interest which the people will not
trust It Is time to call a halt. In spite of
the chairman we have succeeded In calling
together the county committee and wa are
going to ask for fair play. Such an appeal
win iiui no unueeueci. 1 aon I want tnem
to trust me. I want them tn let the leirai
authorities select the Judges and clerks.
If there la any contest I want to know
that at least one judge would not sign his
name to the ballot unless It was used
right. Surely after Mr. Mercer has drawn
fifl,000 from the people and been given a
trip around the world twice he should not
do anything to tend to the election of a

Ine; and pay put us In a place where the
knife will be used on the party.
N. C. Pratt followed, saying In part:
It la a very serious thing which confront.
us. There Is- a time when for the good of
the party one man must be Inconvienced.
In considering: the candidate It Is not only
necessary to look to his ability, but avail
ability. When a man has ao conducted
himself as to lose the confidence of the
laboring people he la not entitled to recog
nition by the party. I believe the time has
come when It will be to the best Interest of
wie party to eiect someone besides Mr.
Mercer to congress. The party has looked
to the Interests of the whole people and
not the Interest of any one man, and this
year should be no exception.
The meeting closed by a story told by
W. A. DeBord. Illustrating th Idea that
no candidate should take any steps which
would Injur the party.

to take exception and which we have 'no

acquisition of new territorial right In
North or South America by any of the Euro

International law, but a question of policy
