A series of interesting experiments
has been Inaugurated by the Chicago
& Alton railroad , which will bo con
ducted for several weeks to determine
the advantage or disadvantage of steel
coal cars over wooden cars. For sev
eral years the Alton has been replac
ing wooden coal cars with steel cars
of greater capacity , and lately engi
neers have been complaining that steel
cars arc much more difficult to handle
In the train than wooden cars , the rel
ative weight of the train being the
same. As the trucks of steel and
wooden cars are Identical , officials arc
skeptical at the difference In the pull ,
The tests will bo made with a train
of 3,000 tons of coal , the weight to be
the same in each test.

HIS FATHER DIED SOON AFTEF
Con O'Connell , Living Southeast o

Thigh and Side While at a Nclgb
Atkinson , Nob. , Aug. 10 , Special to
The News : Con O'Connell was badly
wounded In the hand , thigh and sldo
In an accidental gun discharge , while
nt the homo of a neighbor and a few
hours after the accident the wounded
man's father , who had been in a se
rious condition of health for some
time , expired.
Mr. O'Connell lives southeast of At
John O'Conncll , the elder , who died
shortly after the accident to his ROII ,
was burled today from St. Joseph
Catholic church. He was ono of the
oldest settlers In Holt county. Death
wnH primarily duo to a cancerous
growth on his face , of long standing ,
lie IH survived by a large family of
children , most of them well settled In
life. The widow is now on the old
homestead , where she will remain for

Contesting the Primary.
Sioux City Journal : The California
supreme court has sustained the con
stitutionality of a clause In the pri
mary law requiring every vot'er testate
state bis party affiliation at the time
of registration. The decision Is likely
to have a dampening effect on the
plans of former Senator W. V. Allen ,
who has been threatening to contest
the validity of the Nebraska primary
provision requiring each voter to de
clare his party affiliation when calling
for a ballot. Senator Allen's theory Is
that It is none of the state's business
what ticket a man votes nt any old
election. The theory can bo applied
nicely to a general election , but It
cannot be applied to a primary. In a
primary law the state undertakes to
regulate the method of making nomi
nations by the various political parties.
In order to make the regulation ac
complish its purpose It is necessary
party lines be preserved. In order to
preserve party lines it is necessary to
see that each voter shall not have ac
cess to the tickets of nil parties.
Some regulation to carry out this ob
ject is needed If the system of making
party nominations at a primary is not
to become a farce. If the state ban
the right to regulate the making of
party nominations it Is absurd to say
It has not the right to do whatever is
absolutely necessary to make the sys
tem a success. If former Senator Al
len wants to contest the Nebraska pri
mary on logical grounds ho should
base his case on the theory that the
state has no right to Interfere with
the nominating methods of voluntary
associations such ns political parties
might be held to be. A lively argu
ment could bo put up on that point ,
though the chances for a successful
outcome of the contest might not bo
at all bright.
