Majority for Contin
ELECTION IN YEARS
Both Sides Fut up Strenous Fight

' Lincoln went dry at yesterday's
special election on the proposition of
saloons by a vote of 5,208 to 4,273,
giving a clear majority to the drys
of 935 votes. This is a Rain over last
year's rather decisive victory of 580
votes. The total vote of 9,481 was the
heaviest vote ever polled in the city
of Lincoln, and more than 2,000 lar
ger than that of a year ago. The Taft-
Bryan total vote in 1908 was 9,177.
The election was acknowledged by
all to have been the most strenous
ever conducted in the city on any
issue. The organization of both sides
were perfected to a high degree, the
drys plainly outdoing the wets in their
methods and the activity of the work
ers. The drys used more than forty
automobiles and any number of car
riages and other vehicles. The wets
were short on automobiles, having
not nearly bo many but using every
hack cab and carriage that was for
hire in the city. The drys had a thor
ough orgiinzatuion in every polling
nreeinct in the city. They had chal
lengers in ever polling place, each sup
plied with lists of those who were
subject to challenge. The wets on
the other hand made no pretense of
an organization in some precincts.
The wets were extemely confident up
to the noon hour. Then the scarcity
of their vote in the extremely wet
precincts as compared with that
inhe dry precincts alarmed them.
They redoubled their efforts during
the afternoon, the result showing in
the rapidly increasing vote on the wet
side and "the tremendous stream of
applicants for certificates.
No trouble resulted in any precincet
and it was said when the polls closed
that it was as orderly an election as
was ever conducted in Lincoln, which
has hud the name of holding well

splendid comedy productions with
which the stage is blest.
The characters are English I he
scene laid in London, in a seminary
for young ladies, in all that phrase
implies, with the sternest uorgon oi
them all at the head of it.
Among the girls who make up the
seminary is Miss Angelina Brightwcll,
a ward of chancery therefore not
permitted to marry until she has
reached the age of twenty one. She
hivs, however, attracted the attention
nml won the love of one Captain
Charles Courtenay, of the English
army, who, m the universal manner
of lovers, wants to marry her at once.
Waiting until she is twenty one
docs not appeal to him at all. His
first thought is that time honored
resort of all lovers when the course
of their mutual affection is interfeared
with an elopement. Angelina evades
her watchful preceptress and they
proceed to elope, getting as far as
the seacoast on their way to t ranee,
when they are intercepted by Scotland
Yard men and Angelina is returned
to the seminary, there to remain until
her education is completed and she
has attained the age of twenty one,
when the "law's majestic paw" will
To neither of the lovers does this
method of proeccdurc appeal. The
captain is distractedwhen an old
armv friend. Major O'Gallagher (who
was, in earlier days, an acquaintance
of the stern nionitress of the Semin
ary) comes to the rescue. Shortly
afterward, Major O'Gallagher ap

niece. "Miss Brown from Portsmouth"
for the" purpose of completing her
education. Unsuspicious of the mid
dle aired Maior. the nrinc'mal of the
school unquestioningly adnrits "Miss
Hrown" to the well guarded portals.
"Miss Hrown" is no other than Cap
tain Courtenay, who takes this method
of again seeing Angelina and planning
another elopment. The developments
nre among the funniest ever presented
and the play must be seen to be fully
The outcome is a smothing of
all troubles, and the spectators go
home tired from laughter but hilly
satisfied with the evenings amuse
ment. Mr. Crew's work in the part of
Captain Coutenay is unusually fine,
being strongly reminiscent of Willy
Collier at his comedy best yet in
dividual in every way. To those
who have seen him only in serious
parts, this will be a revelation.
The play ran sixty four weeks in
the American theater in New York,
and each presentation found a capacity
house. It is a veritable instrument of
mirth, runninn the Gamut from a smile
to a scream, and brimful of situations
and lines which recur weeks afterward,
and bring a chuckle every time they

PRISONERS SET FIRE TO
MATTRESS IN OLD JAIL
Mrs. Manspeaker's Quick Wit
Again Prevents Jail Delivery
of Five Men.
The old shack used as the Cass
county jail nearly, had a welcome end
to it's existence this morning about
ten fifteen when the deputy sheriff's
wife was aroused by the cry of fire
from the prisoners in the room below,
and the cage was found to be full of
moke. Mrs. Manspeaker is indeed
having her troubles at the old plac.
A few weeks ago she narrowly pre
vented three men from making their
escanc through the brick wall and sev
eral minor attempts have been Headed
off in the past few days.
This morning neither the slientl
or the deputy were in town, and the
creation of the fire appears to have
been a futile attempt of the prisoners
to make their get away in the excite
ment which would follow the blaze.
There were five men in the cage at
the time and one or two of them have
stated before that they would get
out of that place before they were
taken to the pen. Seeing a good
chance for liberty a little after ten
this morning they set fire to one corner
of a mattress and after the room was
well filled with smoke, set up a loud
cry of fire and help, probably expect
ing that Mrs. Manspeaker, who was
alone in the living rooms above, would
rush down and unlock the grated doors
and in a few minutes time would be
well on their way to freedom.
However their plan didn't pan out
as they hail expected and before
going below to the prisoners, the dep
uty's wife notified central of the com
motion in the cdk By the time she
imt, down into the room, the prisoners
had found the smoke rather oppress
ing nml pxtininiishcd the hre them
selves. The door was not unlocked
into the cage and their hopes of escape
drifted up m the cloud oi sihokc
from the smouldering mattress. The
lirwf. pnrt. u'iis C ailed out but the hose
was not removed from the reel and no i
service from the department was!
The little incident this morning
again calls the attention of the public
to the unsafe condition of their jail.
The only means of entering the living
rooms on the second floor are a pair
of shaky old wooden stairs on the east
side and in case of a fire destroying
these which a blaze could wipoutin
a minute's time, the only exit from the
living rooms would be destroyed and
the family up stairs would have to
take the air route to descend.
It is necessary to keep the men
ihp cnire at all times now
niwl t ltfv nn no loitirer civen the frce-
dom of the corridor, for it woum iahe
about five minutes work with a hair
pin or tooth pick to tear out enough
brick from the wall to enable a regi
ment to crawl through. Just a (lay
or two ago an officer entered the jail
and found a piece of a stool forced
under the door of the cage which had
probablty been used by the men in
trying to pry off the heavy door of
the cell. Nearly every day there is

something that happens to show the
perilous condition of the Cass count v
strong house. It has been slightly
repaired and some new cement work
applied to the inside but as far as
strengthening up the old shell and
making it secure, that's an impossi
bility. We need a new jail!
