LINCOLN, Neb., Oct. 2. Ther
seems to be a very general misunder
standing regarding the correct inter

to tho filing of certificates of nomina

didates have until twenty-five daya be
fore election to file certificates of nom
ination, but their expense statement:!
must bo on file within ten days after
the convention. According to the gen
eral understanding of the law it is not
necessary for Judicial candidates to flto
certificates with the secretary of state.
The law In this respect provides that
all persons nominated for any Judicial
or state ofilce by a convention repro
pontlng a district Inrgor than n county
shall fllo certificates with the secretary
of state, except as otherwise provided.
Another section provides that Judicial
candidates must flic certificates with

OMAHA, Neb., Oct 3. The experi
ment of sprinkling railroad tracks
with crude petroleum In order to keep

gether glittering success. This was
not due to the fact that the oil would

curely, but because the oil was n con
stant menaco to tho safety of travel.
Sections of track on some of the sea
shore lines that tried tho experiment
were set on flre in the most mysterious
manner. Tho management knew that
tho bresoncc of the oil would account
for tho extent of tho fires once started,

of so many. It was thought that re
vengeful tramps were at the bottom
of it, but finally It was ascertained that
Hvo sparks from n locomotive would
do the trick as quickly as would a

this to bo true, and the oil plan la be.
