ROBERTS BRANDED
AS CRIMINAL CHIEF
Teire Haute Prosecutor Say Mayor
Had Finger in "All the Dirty
Outrage."
EVERYBODY DID IT FOR MONEY
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., April 2.
After Judge Anderson, in the Vniled
States district court, had overruled
notions to Instruct the Jury to brine
in verdicts of not guilty, Milton W.
Mangus, assistant Vnited States dis
trict attorney yesterday began the
opening argument in the trial of the
Terre Haute election fraud case. Each
Bide was given ten hours for argu
ments, which means that the case
111 not go to the Jury until late Mon
day or Tuesday of next week.
aa Kllilrnrr Insufficient.
Clarence Nichols, attorney for
William Doyle and George Woodall,
moved that the court Instruct the
Jury, to bring In a verdict of not
guilty for hla clients, on the ground
that the evidence Introduced against
them by the government was not suf
ficient to constitute a prima facie
case.
A. O. Stanley, attorney for Mayor
Donn M. Roberts and the majority
of the twenty-right defendants, made
a similar motion on behalf of George
Zovern, Pearly McKay, Andrew
O'Brien, Joseph O'Mara and Richard
Knuckey.
Jery Present.
After t'nltcd Ststes District Attorney
Palley hsil siokcn In opposition to both
(notions Judge Anderson luitde hla ruling.
He stated that the evidence against Doyle
waa the weakeat link In the chain, but
that It was sufficient to be given to the
Jury to decide. The Jury was not present
luring the consideration of the motions.
"Donn nt.rta was tiie real leader of
the conspiracy and had hla flngor In all
Die dirty outrages." Mr. Mangus aaserted.
"He had direct charge of the con
spirators." He ssacrted that money waa the motive
for the conspiracy and that "loyalty to
party waa no excuse for the many Crimea
commlttecd In connection with the elec
tion of November 3. ISM In Terra Haute."
He. said I'll H. Redman Joined the con
spiracy for the aalnry he would receive
aa judge; that the city employe entered
It In order to hold their position and, draw
their pay: snd that tho saloon keepers
and gamblers were In the conspiracy be
cause of the favors they would obtain
from the city administration.
No Loophole Left.
Vr. Mangus referred to the testimony
of Policeman Thomas Barry and Detec
tive Fred Armstrong, who were called by
the defense and on cross-examination
gave evldenre favorublo to the govern
ment as 'The evidence that made the
rase undhpulablc and the opportunity for
the government to foreclose on the de
fendants, if they had no gap luft for

LONDON. April 2.-The official war re
ports contain little news today, and that
which they do give relates only to opera
tion of minor Importance. Mine warfare
ha been In progress at many points in
the west, and at other points there have
been artillery duels ano occasional In
fantry attacks, but nothing that has In
any way approached the proportions ot
a battle.
In the east the smiles stand about as
tliey were. The fighting in north Poland
ha been of a desultory character, both
sides apparently having given up any Idea
of advancing for the present. In centrat
Poland, however, the Russians arc show
ing a certain liveliness.
The German offlclsl reports for the last
two days have noted attempts of the
Russian troops to resume the offensive
on the Rawka river, while Vienna re
ports a severe attack by the Russians In
the vicinity of the Plllca river, which
they claim to have repulsed.
Thexe movements doubtless have been
undertaken to prevent the Auntrlsns and
Germans from sending reinforcements
fi-om this front to strenpthen the armies
which are trying to hold the Carpathian
passes against the onslaught of the Rus
sians, who dally report the capture of a
large number of prisoners, but who sp
parcntly are making very slow headway
In the operations against Lupkow and
1'xsok parses. The Russians also are
nlowly pushing the Turks back In the
Caucasus.
Belgrade has sgaln been bombsrded by
Austrian guns, while Austrian airmen
have dropped bombs on Cettlnje, the
Montenegrin capital.
The operations of the allied warships
In the Dardanelles are still In a state of
abeyance.

MARK THIS ON YOUR SLATE
I PLEDGE MYSELF TO THE FOLLOWING DECLARATIONS :
BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION.
I will give the business of the city my close personal
attention. Nine years of experience as Councilman, Pres
ident of the Council, and Mayor of the city, with a careful
study of Municipal Problems, has given me a practical
understanding of the needs of this great city, and will en
able me to enforce new economies and secure efficient
service.
BETTER SERVICE.
I will extend my influence and ability for the re
organization of the various city departments, to the end
that better service may be obtained at a less cost, and
will see that the taxpayers' money is spent with the same
care that would be exercised in any well regulated private
corporation.
LAW ENFORCEMENT.
Am in favor of the enforcement of the Slocumb Law,
believing that the legalized liquor dealers should have
proper protection and that bootleggers should be uncom
promisingly suppressed. Joints breed crime and should
be stamped out without further delav.
POLICE DEPARTMENT.
It is ray contention that Omaha should have a police
department entirely free from outside influences. The
aim of the police department should be to enforce the
laws, reasonably, humanely, fearlessly and impartially.
The Administration of Justice in the police court
will be a farce as long as the present City Prosecutor is
retained in office. I am for his removal.
MENDICANTS AND FAKIRS.
The annoyance of street mendicants should be stop
IhhI. Hegging on the streets is unnecessary. Street
fakirs and itinerant merchants should not be tolerated
they have no bargains and only interfere with legitimate
business.
PHYSICAL VALUATION AND RATES.
1 have for a long time favored employment of ex
Hrts to determine the physical valuation of all franchise
corporation properties, to the end that the city may regu
late and control such service and effect reduction of rates.
Elect ric light rates should le reduced without delay, by
ordinance.
FRANCHISE RIGHTS.
I insist that the right of franchised corporations to
occupy streets and alleys should be specifically deter
mined and in no event should an extension of any fran
chise be granted.
MUNICIPAL OWNERSHIP.
I am in favor of municipal ownership rf all public
ntilit ies and I contend that steps should be taken imme
diately for the acquisition of the gas plant, rather than
to wait for the expiration of the existing franchise. I
favor the idea of the city taking steps to acquire the elec
tric light plant and to operate this monopoly for the
benefit of the city, and I will exert my best efforts to in
duce the voters to approve bond issues for the gas and
electric light plants. It is also my belief that in the
event the city cannot satisfactorily agree with the electric
light company on the terms of purchase, the cityhould
have the alternative to compete by municipal operations.
GARBAGE.
The city should have complete control of the collec
tion and disposition of garbage, instead of letting three
year contracts to private interests who reap large profits.
A reduction plant should be established, thus affording
the city a more sanitary as well as profitable garbage
system. The by-products of the reduction plant can be
sold and the plant made self-supporting. I am for mod
ernizing Omaha's garbage system.
STREET LIGHTING.
The street lighting system of the city needs improv
ing, and I stand for placing this city in the front rank of
well-lighted municipalities.
CITY CHARTER.
A city charter convention should be called without
delay. Omaha should be working under a charter of its
own making, without being compelled to go to Lincoln
every time the charter needs changing. A home rule,
city charter should be written at once, ami it should con
tain the best and most comprehensive declarations
PARKS AND BOULEVARDS.
The improvement of the boulevard and park system
would be a splendid way to advertise Omaha. Other
cities have stent millions to Omaha's thousands in boule
vard improvements. Omaha has a fine boulevard system
laid out, and it is time for public spirited officials to
work toward the completion and the beautification of this
magnificent system of pleasure thoroughfares.
m CONCLUSION Asking for the support of the
voters of Omaha, I refer to nine years as a public official ;
also to various campaigns for the people, when I worked
without salary. I challenge anybody to point out one
questionable act during the nine years I was Council
man, Persident of Council, and Mayor.
It has been my contention for many years that tbe public busi
ness .should be conducted upon a business basis; that a public of
flm Is not a private tsnap. and that the administration of municlDal
affair Is a business worthy of a man's best efforts
... 1 JlVe uled municipal t-roblems for years; have gone Into
th. subject of franchised corporations, physical valuations, munic
ipal ownership, occupation taxes and other subjects. I feel com
petent to serve as city commissioner and my best recommendations
are the records of my past bervice.
I promise to devote all of my time, energy and abil
ity to the office. HARRY B. ZLMMAN.
