ELECII REIMS STILL VERY
UHSATISFACTORY FROM STATE
Everything However Indicates Mayor Dahlman's Undoubted
Nomination, While Shallenberger Claims Hi Own Nomi-:
nation by li500.
Ed. Mone went to Lincoln Mon
visited this vicinity
The returns from Tuesday pri
maries come in very slowly, and the
final result will not he known for
several days, especially as to the gov
ernor. Dahlman's friends rlalm his
nomination hy at least .",000, while
Sballcnberger claims that he will be
nominated hy 1,5007"" The fad Is
that'lf the returns have been as In
complete In other cotintieH as they
have appeared in Cass county up to
the present time, no one Is able to
conjecture the result. It seems to
be all guess work. From Incom
plete returns It appears that Dahl
man Is nominated by a pood safe ma
jority. On the Republican side of
the house, Aldrlch has undoubtedly
defeated Cady for the Republican
nomination for governor, although on
the face of the returns, the result
will he less than 1,000 difference in
the vote. In fact, Cady concedes
Aldrlch's nomination. Will nay
ward, for congress, has evidently car
ried every county In tho district. The
dirty attack made upon him in Lin
coln by Tohey's friends, aided greatly
In the sweeping victory for Ilayward.
This would denote thnt dirty poli
tics will win nothing with intelligent
voters. The race in tho First dis
trict is now up to Magulro, Democrat,
and present Incumbent, and Mr. Ilay
In the other five congressional
districts it appears that C, O. Lobeck
has been nominated In tho Second,
Latta renominated In the Third,
Judge Good of Wahoo, In the Fourth,
D. R. Sutherland in Fifth, and Judge
Dean in the Sixth, all Democrats.
Ralph Clark of Richardson has been .
' nominated for lieutenant governor on
the Democratic ticket, while M. R.
Hopewell, present Incumbent, has
been renominated. This is about all
that can be gleaned from the returns
tip to the present time. It would
neem that In getting the returns from
. the state at large, people lost all In
terest in everything except governor
.and United States senator, and the
wonderful victory of G. M. Hitchcock
over Metcalfe, Is amazingly surpris
ing, when such a strong effort was
made by Mr, Rryan's friends to de
feat him. Here is another Instance
, where honesty would have been tho
best policy, .even in politics. Itelow
will be found the vote of Platts
mouth, which Is all we are able to
produce until we can get the returns
from the county In full:

J. C. Pressnel, a Smooth Travel
ing Man and Gallant Wooer.
Those who were out early enough
last Sunday morning, might have
Been a drama enacted in real life.
The parties thereto were a traveling
man who has made himself familiar
to our citizens, while stopping at tho
Gibbon house. Ho has been here at
various times, and for several days
before his departure, hail been keep
ing company with a charming widow
lady. Ho has represented himself as
a divorced husband, and through ard
ent wooing for Bevcral weeks had bo
come engaged and even set the date
of the wedding. The bride's clothes
It is reported, were all ready for the
propitious occasion, a wedding tour

ingly going on swimmingly when a
rude awakening occurred.

saw fit to (pi it his job, lose sight of
his wife, who resided In Chicago,
and secure a Job traveling for the
Thomas Manufacturing company of
Dayton, Ohio.' In the meantime it
seems he Informed his wife that ho
could never return to her. This news,
and failure to reach him by corrcs
pondence, or through the firm he was
traveling with, Induced the woman to
search him out and at least find out
his condition. She telegraphed her
son to meet her, and together they
Journeyed to St. Louis, Mo. After
keveral days search she was about
to return, when the displayed the
picture of her husband to the police.
A traveling man standing near no

I know where you will find that man.
He is in Weeping Water, Neb." They
both started for this noted city and
reached hero Sunday about 7 a. m.
She was not long In locating her
truant spouse, whoso health never
was better. There was something
doing for a time, but she said: "I
will never leave until you go with
me." He got his laundry, his grip
and his wife and son Btood on Am
bler's corner to await his coming.
Chug, chug, said the livery barn auto,

In the race on the Democratic side lor
the same position.
In the First district, William Hay-
ward defeated Tobey for the nomina
tion for congress, even carrying To-
bey's home county, Lancaster. Con
gressman J. A. Maguire had no oppo
sition for renomlnation on the Demo
cratic ticket in the First. In the Sec
ond the Republicans nominate Judge
A. L. Sutton and the Democrats nom
inate C. O. Lobeck. In the Third the
race between J. F. Boyd and L. G.
Brian for the Republican nomination
has apparently been determined in fa
vor of Boyd. Congressman James P.
Latta was renominated without oppo
sition. In the Fourth C H. Sloan, Re
publican, was named without opposi
tion, while the Democratic contest is
close between Bailey and Good. On
the Democratic side R. D. Sutherland
has a lead over Harman In the Fifth,
where Congressman Norrls was renom
inated without opposition. In the
Sixth contests are being fought on
both sides, and the returns from there
are very meager, but it )s Indicated
that Congressman M. P. Klnkaid will
be renominated by the RepubUcans.

1). T. Dudley in Town.
Dave Dudley who has been a Cass
county citizen for the past twenty
years was in the city this morning,
having come in with the Weeping
Water city returns. Mr. Dudley is
not as robust as formerly, only now
weighing 204 pounds, having fallen
away 37 pounds within a few years.
Mr. Dudley landed In Plattsmouth
at the foot of Main street something
over forty years ago and was a citi
zen of the village for twenty-four
hours. There was not much of the
town of Plattsmouth in sight at that
time, only a few houses near the
river. He went from here to Lin
coln and remained a few days and
renewed his Journey, starting for
Seward, but the hills west of Salt
Creek were too much for him and he
returned to Lincoln and later settled
on a farm near Weeping Water, For
the past twenty-five years he has re
sided In Weeping Water city proper,
and has been in business there ever
Jesse 15. Strode Xwninated.
J. B. Strode of Lincoln, formerly
congressman from this district, was
in the city today looking after the
Samuel Johnson estate. Mr. Strode
was a candidate for county attorney
on the primary ballot Tuesday, and
received the nomination by 200
votes. Mr. Strode says he cannot ac
count for the way Republicans voted
for Mr. Dahlman at Lincoln, unless
It was that the 600 Republicans who
supported Dahlman did it to show
their resentment against the temper
ance waive that took the saloons out
of Lincoln Mr. Strode thinks that
some of the same Republicans will
support Mr. Dahlman at the polls la
ease he receives the nomination al
though he Is of the opinion that not
all of them will do so.

The electrical storm In the vicin

It on fire. The structure was burn

could be extinguished. The rain at
that placo and Weeping Water took

coming down In torrents and sweep
lng everything before It.
