ditch along the roadway on North

of Omaha were not seriously hurt
and the only injury was a slight
bruise to the shoulder of Mrs. Berger.

sive county central committee met

resentation was present from over

one not to the liking of the mem

for county sheriff, the committee af
ter some deliberation decided to
name Ed Thimgan. one of the well
known and popular young men of
the west portion of the county, as
the standard bearer for this ofli. e and
the nomination was received with
the greatest enthusiasm by the mem
bers of the committee and Mr. Thim

The condition of affairs in the

or injury.
The care of the violation of the

pleased with the way in which the
affairs have been conducted and the

Ramblers of Omaha
Have Losing
End of 2 to 0 Score in Fast
Game on Local Lot.
Sunday afternoon the fans the
greater portion of whom were from
up the river gathered at the ball
park to witness oue of the best and
fastest games of the season and
which resulted in the victory being
won by the local team by the score
of 2 to 0.
Manager Wolff had designated Joe
McCarthy as the hurler for the oc
casion and Joe proved in the best
cf form, allowing but one lonely
hit and striking out thirteen of the
visitors. The fielding of the team
was also par excellence and at no
time were the Omaha players in dan
ger of scoring. The best chances of
the visitors were extinguished by a
pair of double plays in the game.
In the second inning, Bilby secur
ed first on being hit by McCarthy
nnd was followed by Budd who hit
to Gradoville at s'lort and Bilby was
forced to Newman at second and
Hans threw out Budd at first. White
was struck out. The second of the
doubles occurred in the fifth inning,
when Budd secured first on a bobble
of a grounder by Herold, but Pete
ame right back when White hit a
fly in his territory and doubled Budd
at first and nipped off the chance
of a score as Miller was whiffed by
The Merchants opened their scor
ing in the second inning when Shep
herd secured a clean hit to the cen
ter garden and also picked up a
couple of stolen bases around to
third, and when Budd at third was
unable to handle the grounder of
Joe McCarthy, Shepherd registered.
The third inning gave the locals an
other run to their credit, when Wolff
rapped one to the right field line
that was called safe and Johnnie
rested on second when the ball was
recovered, took third on a passed
ball and scored on Herold's hit to
third base.
This closed the scoring for the
game and both teams showed good
fielding form in the remainder of the
contest. Martin, the mound artist of
the visitors, pitched a good game as
only four hits were annexed off his
delivery and nil who saw the game
ere more than pleased with Its
speed and clean playing. The Ram
blers are a fast and clean bunch of
young men and one of the best teams
teen here this season.

Resident of Nebraska Masonic Home
Who Has Been Bedfast Since
1902, Called to Long Rest
On Saturday evening at 5:30 at the
Nebraska Masonic Home in this city,
where for the past eleven years she
has resided, Mrs. Harriett Van Wie
was called to the last long rest. The
death came after a severe attack of
pneumonia and a period of long sick
ness as the deceased lady has been
bedfast since April 13, 1902, and
practically helpless the greater part
of the time, as the result of a para
lytic stroke.
Mrs. Van Wie was born November
1, 1844, at Salem, Wis., and made
her home in that state up to 1888,
when the family came to Nebraska
ami located at Lincoln. She was a
charter member of East Lincoln
chapter 148, Order of Eastern Star,
and following her stroke of paralysis
in 1902 she was brought to the Home
here on June 11, 1911, where she
has since resided.
She was a lady of Christian char
acter and uncomplainingly bore the
cross of pain and suffering that had
been her misfortune to have come to
her and was bright and cheerful un
der the suffering and her personality
endeared her to all those who had
the pleasure of knowing her.
The death of her son, Fred Van
Wie of Waverly, two months ago,
had a very depressing effect on the
aged lady and her decljne has been
very rapid and an attack of pneu
monia was too severe for her frail
body to bear and quietly she sank to
rest. She is survived by her daughter-in-law,
Mrs. Fred Van Wie, and
two granddaughters, Mrs. John Lod
er and Miss Harriett Van Wie of
Waverly and the two granddaughters
were here with their grandmother at
the time of her death.
The body was taken to Lincoln

services held Monday afternoon at 2
o'clock from the Vine Congregational
church in that city. Rev. Bullock, of

patient will find relief in the opera

Mrs. Jennie V. Fantham of Rapid
City, Iowa, Asks for This Sum
for Alleged Injuries.
From Tuesday's Dally.
The board of county commission
ers at their session this morning
were faced with a claim for the Mini
of $10,950 filed by Mrs. Jennie Fan
tham, C. II. Fantham and Earl Fan
tham as the result of injuries that
the claimants state occurred as the
result of their auto running into the
ditch on the O street road south of
the town of Elm wood. Mrs. Fantham
asks the sum of $10,000 for personal
injury, while the remainder of the
claim is asked by the husband and
It is alleged that the accident oc
curred on August 2nd when the
three claimants were traveling on
the O street road toward the went
and in going down the hill failed to
make the turn and ran into the
ditch that has existed for a gr-at
many years there and which is cov
ered by a bridge a short distance
south of the turn in the road.
The road has been kept In good
shape by the county and the bridge
also is in first class shape, but the
sharp turn in the road has apparent
ly been the cause of the many ac
cidents that have occurred there as
parties coming from the east who
are not familiar with the road and
traveling at a good rate of speed
can easily miss the turn and as the
result go over into the ditch instead
of crossing the bridge a short dist
ance south.
In regard to the matter the coun
ty authorities can see no Justifica
tion of a claim for the heavy dam
ages and the matter will probably
be aired in the district court, as the
county commissioners are not in the
mood to allow the large amount
asked for by the parties in the ac
