Seal Estate Exchange Hears Two Bides of
Case Argued.
Points Oat What Appear to Him to
Be Dangerous Defects and City
Attorney Breen Explains
the Provisions.
City Attorney Breen. John L. McCsgue,
H. W. Pennock and others In a less degree
discussed the amended, patched and tin
kered charter for an hour before a few
members of the Real Estate exchange. Mr.
McCague was the most intent of the speak
ers and sailed into the proposed form of
government in about this manner:
Mr. Breen ndmlts the charter before the
legislature has been amended by htm
eighty-two times. Has It occurred to I'our
honorable city attorney that If he could
find eighty-two places where changes are
necessary how many more the citizens of
Omaha could find? As o real estate owner
I wish to say in all esrnepinpss that If it
becomes a law our city wii? receive a stroke
It will take years to recover from. The
charter has been gotten up by a sugges
tion here and there by people not suffi
ciently Interested In the city. Men who
have the Interest of the city at heart have
worked at the charter In a desultory way,
but have not had the opportunity to Ingraft
their ideas on it. The proposed charter is
so full of holes I doubt If It could stand be
fore the supreme court. This Is too Im
portant a matter to be taktn up In this
desultory way. Omaha citizens should ap
point a commission to make a charter in
which all Interests shall have a hand.
Its Effect on Assessments.
After years of effort we have got the as
sessment on the basis of a fair selling vnlue
for property. This is as it Is In other cities.
If the amended charter becomes the law, we
will have to go back to the present county
and state assessment at one-fifth the vulue.
It will be a stroke the city will not get over
for years. We will have a valuation of
twenty millions and not one hundred and
twenty-five as now we will be looked on as
a county seat and not as a city. Will you
submit to a mlllage of 8? What will out
side property owners say when you send
them a tax bill of 7 or 8 per cent?
The charter Is full of errors from top to
bottom. As a member of the school board.
I wish to point out that It makes no pro
vision for a school treasurer, no provision
for his bond, nnd that it cuts the school
board out entirely and leave us to run on a
credit basis until we can get the law
changed next year or can go Into the su
preme court.
Breen Defends His Work.
Mr. Breen hastened to point to Mr. Mc
Cague that he and his attorneys are en
tirely wrong In supposing the school board
has been cut off from Its source of Income.
He said the school board exists under the
general laws, which are not affected in any
way, and the board can go on as It has
"The whole Idea of the amendment," said
Mr. Breen, "Is to consolidate the taxing
and assessing bodies of the county and city.
These changes, together with the abolition
of the Advisory board and the Board of
Public Works, are the real changes In the
charter. Almost all of the others In the
eighty-two amendments are merely changes
In punctuation and In diction which make
them legally correct. There can be no
reason to question the benefits which will
follow these changes. We attempted to
make It so that all taxes should be paid
nt one place at one time and be placed nil
on one ' certificate, but the corporate In
terests made a strong fight not to change
the time of payment for city taxes, so that
we let hat remain. But tho average citi
zen will have no difficulty In paying every
thing at once In one office, which will do
away with great confusion. Another bene
fit IS that tho charter will absolutely limit
the mayor and tho city council so that they
cannot spend more than the amount al
lowed for the departments."
Pennock States Objections.
H. W. Pennock raised some points about
taxation and objected to the charter be
cause, he said, It created nine new ways
In which special tuxes may be levied on
property owned.
"It gives the council," he said, "power
to levy an Immense amount of money on
property which there Is no way to escape.
It hits property owners very hard. If
there should be an, error In the notice so
that property owners do not know of the
work proposed it makes no difference. It
puts great power In the hands of the
Mr. Breen denied that the changed
charter would give any Increased power
of taxation.
Few ppi Know How Cscrat It Is la
Preserving Health aad HenntT.
Nearly everybody knows that charcoal
the safest and most efficient disinfectant
and purifier la nature, but few realise Its
valus when taken Into ths human system
(or the same cleansing purpose.
Charcoal is a remedy that the more you
take of It the better; It Is not a drug st all.
but simply absorbs the gases and Impurities
always present In ths stomach and Intes
tines and carries them out of the system.
Charcoal sweeten the breath after smok
ing, drinking or after eating onions sod
other odorous vegetables. ,
Charcoal effectually clears and Improves
the complexion. It whitens ths teeth and
further acts ss a natural and eminently
safe cathartic.
It absorbs the Injurious 'gases which col
lect In the stomach and bowels; It disin
fects the mouth and'throat from the poison
of catarrh.
All druggists sell charcoal In one form or
another, but probably ths best charcoal
Charcoal Losenges; they are composed of
the finest powdered Willow charcoal, ,0i
other harmless antiseptics In tablet form
or rather In the form of Urge, pleasant
tasting losenges, the charcoal being mixed
with honey. ;
The daily iise of these lozenges will soon
tell in a much Improved condition of the
general health, better complexion,', sweeter
breath and purer blood. nd ths beauty of
It Is, that r.o possible harm can result from
their continued ua, but on ths contrary,
great benefit.
A Buffalo physician' In speaking 'of ths
benefits of charcoal; says: "I advise
Stuart's Charcoal Losenges to all patients
suffering from gas In stomach and bowels,
and to clear tha complexion snd purify the
breath, mouth and throat; I also believs
the liver Is greatly benefited by ths dally
use of them; they cost but twenty. flvs
cents a box st drug stores, and although In
some sense a patent preparation, yet I be
lieve I get more and better charcoal In
Stuart's Charcoal Losenges than In any of
the ordinary charcoal tablets."

IuTtstigation of Method of County Board
it Well Under Way.
Motions to Delay or Qnnsh the Ob
jeetloa Are Overruled aad Tak
ins; of Testimony as to
Lists Starts.
The district court Judges on Wednesday
morning started In to investigate In earn
est the method of making up the Jury lists
for Douglas county. They overruled all
motions looking to delay In the matter or
to throwing out the motion to quash.
In opposition to the motion of Weaver A
Oilier to have the entire 19u6 list qunshsd
and declared void, appeared Judge Holmes
as the active attorney in the case at bar
In which the question was raised snd
County Attorney Slabaugh as the official
adviser of the county board. Both .raised
the points that the motion is not proper
at this time and that it Introduced matters
not at all pertaining to the case In which
It was made, . or, rather, which was
seized on as the excuse for making It.
After a short consultation Judges Day,
Estelle, Kennedy and Redlck, sitting en
bane, overruled the motion. When Deputy
County Clerk Dan Butler was put on the
stand to Identify the lists handed In to the
county clerk's office by the five county
commissioners, objection was again raised
and a long argument made by Judge
Holmes against the receipt of testimony
going to the merits of the lists as made up.
It, too, was overruled, nnd the whole pro
ceeding will apparently be gone into.
Inquisition I'nder Way.
After the motion to throw out the pro
ceeding had been fought and beaten by
Weaver & GllJer, I. J. Dunn assumed the
position of questioner. Mr. Butler identified
the lists and explained the method of check
log In the county clerk's office. He admit
ted It might be possible to get the same
name Into the Jury wheel on more than one
slip of paper without the clerk being aware
of the fact. The people who write the lists
out on the slips are depended on to check
them over by the commissioners' lists.
Mr. Dunn pointed out three duplications
on the list as copied Into the book in the
county clerk's office. They were repetitions
of the names of Domlnlck Cosgrove, Jere
miah Howard and James E. Connolly. How
ard hasRlready been drawn twlco on the
present panel and Cosgrove and Connolly
once each.
Mr. Butler had no personal knowledge
by which he could account for the ap
pearance of the names twice on the list.
At a second session, which continued tin
til 6:15 o'clock, the court heard testimony
from Chairman Kennard and Commission
era Hofeldt, Brunlng. McDonald and
Tralnor, and from former Commissioners
Connolly and O'Keeffe. '
All of the witnesses agreed In saying
that, while there might have been somo
carelessness in making up the lists, so far
as strict compliance with the letter of the
law Is concerned, they had exercised their
best Judgment In the preparation of the
Commissioners Brunlng and Tralnor had
taken the lists left by tho commissioners
who preceded them and had contented
themselves with adding a few names. They,
of course, were not very familiar with the
lists of their districts and could not say
as to the proportionate equality between
the different precincts.
"Preparation of Lists.
. The testimony Indicates that It has been
the habit for the commissioners to leave
the preparation of the lists to a clerk, to
whom they, would furnish names and give
Instructions. They held It to be an Im
possibility to prepare so large a list of
names and know the qualifications of the
men. Each man expressed this view on
the stand and freely admitted that his
personal investigation had been somewhat
Listening members of the bar smiled and
shook their heads wisely while the com
missioners were testifying. This was espe
cially true when Mr. Kennard said there
was one name on Jiia list that he had not
put on or authorized, and that he did not
know who had put it on; also when wit
nesses admitted that they could not ex
plain the appearance of the same name
twice or account for men on the 1905 list
who had served In 1904.
The hearing will be concluded this morn
ing and to hasten It the Judges will meet
at 9 o'clock.

the public is the final
