While Shallenberger Still Claims 1,500

"Nine hundred and live precincts

lonberger 20,024 votes in the nice for

Aldrlch runs well In the state ami
cut down the big lead that was given
Cady in Douglas county. Ho will prob
ably bo nominated , but the final fig
ures will not show n widespread dif
ference between the winner and the
Dahlman Seems Safe.
Dahlman went out of Douglas with
a big lead , which he Increased in Lan-
cnater , and the Shallenberger pre
cincts have not been sufficiently nu
merous to reduce Dahlnmn very much.
At the rate returns are showing Dahl
man is safely ahead.
Burkett Is running far ahead of
Whedon and the others for the en
dorsement for United States senator
by the republicans , and Hitchcock
left Reed and Metcnlfe far In the rear
in the race on the democratic side
for the same position.
From David City last night Mr. Aid-
rich sent word that he had returns
which convinced him he would have
10,000 majority over Cady for the re
publican nomination for governor.
Over the long distance telephone from
St. Paul , Mr. Cady said he was satis-
tied with the way the figures were
coming in. He made no claims.
Governor Shallenberger gave at Lin
coln a statement that he had figures
from enough precincts to overcome
Dahlraan's lead in the big counties ,
and that he would be named for gov
ernor by at least 1,500.
Late last night Chairman Flyun of
the Dahlnmn club said he had received
information which assured the Omaha
mayor of the democratic nomination :
"Our information from men we have
had reports from in various counties
leads me to claim Dahlman's nomina
tion by 8,000. " said Mr. Flynn.
, 'Flgures received and tabulated
here are favorable to the mayor , even
in localities where we did not expect
much , and at the present rate the
mayor will have at least the majority
I have named. "
Chairman Flynn did not have his
figures in shape to give out , he said ,
but Insisted the mayor would come tc
Douglas county with between 2.50C
and 3,000 votes.
The Congressional Races.
In the First district William Hay
ward defeated Tobey for the nomlna
tlon for congress , even carrying To
bey's home county , Lancaster. Con

PRESIDENT TAFT BEGINS FIGHT
LONGWORTH IS THE SPOKESMAN
Roosevelt's Son-ln-Law , Who Has Been
Called Into All Taft Conferences
Lately , Says Cannon Must Go.
Longworth Off to Oyster Bay.
Beverly , Aug. 18. Reflecting the
views of the administration , it is gen
erally believed , Representative Nicholas
las Longworth of Ohio today gave out
a statement In which he says he will
never support Speaker Cannon again
and that lie does not believe that
Cannon ever can be re-elected. This
Is regarded as the actual beginning of
the real light on Mr. Cannon.
It had been regarded as significant
that Mr. Longworth had been called
into all of the recent conferences of
a political character held by Presi
dent Taft. He was present yesterday
afternoon when the president and
vice president talked together. It was
reported then that a statement adverse
to Mr. Cannon was being prepared in
quarters close to the administration" '
and It was also intimated that Mr.
Sherman who , like Mr. Lotigworth , has
always been a supporter of Mr. Can
non , had become reconciled to the
fact that Mr. Cannon must go.
There may be further significance in
the fact that Representative Long-
worth is going to Oyster Bay Satur
day to spend several days with his
father-in-law , Colonel Roosevelt.

"Mr. Cannon declines to answer any
statement which Nicholas Longworth
may or may not have made until he
sees it. I do not answer any state

mischievous parties make.
"It is time enough for me to an

States if he wants any statement
touching on the republicanism of the

hours President Taft and Vice Presl
dent Sherman talked over the defeat
! of Colonel Theodore Roosevelt by the
( Now York state republican committee
'and ' the selection of Mr. Sherman ovet
| Mr. Roosevelt as temporary chairman
of the Saratoga convention. Mr. Slier
* man said he had no intention of with
drawing in favor of Mr. Roosevelt ant
he treated lightly the stories thai
there might be a light to repudiate
the action of the state committee li
The vice president also talked will

. 'slonal ' campaign. Ho wants the figh
. to bo waged along the old lines.
c | "A straight cut republican light 01

j' ' ord of the party , including the tariff , '
j he put it.
t At Mr. Sherman's solicitation Presl
dent Taft agreed to point the way li
the campaign by writing a letter whlcl
Is to bo made a part of the campalgi
text-book of the republican committee
While the fight apparently Is to hi
11 directed along the lines of the past
It can be said authoritatively that th <
I feature of the party reorganlzatloi
1.1 plan , which calls for the retirement o
JI Speaker Cannon , will bo strictly ad
s hered to , It is even said that Vic
: President Sherman , one of th
staunchest supporters the speake
over had , has become reconciled to
the decision that Mr Cannon must go.
It is said In quarters close to the
administration that the attitude re
cently taken hy Mr. Cannon In public
Interviews Is deplored and it Is made
plain that there Is no thought on the
part of many of his former supporters
again to name Mr. Cannon.
Representative Nicholas Longworth
of Ohio , who lias been called into near
ly all of the recent conferences at
the president's homo , was at the in
terview with Mr. Sherman. Represen
tative Anthony of Knnasa , one of the
two so-called "standpatters" In the
Kansas delegation who succeeded in
staving off defeat by the insurgents
In the recent primaries in that state ,
also saw the president. Mr. Anthony
supported Speaker Cannon , but he ,
too , said that he deplored the stand
Mr. Cannon Is taking. Mr. Anthony
said that Speaker Cannon had almost
been forgotten as an Issue In Kansas
until he came Into the campaign and
made himself one.
President Taft will begin work at
once on the letter which is expected
to bo the keynote of the congressional
campaign. He will address the com
munication to Representative William
B. Mckinley of llllonis , chairman of the
republican congressional committee.
It lias not been decided as yet whe
ther the letter will bo given out In
advance of its npeparatice In the text
book. There Is every llkllhood that
It will , however.
Mr. Sherman urged the president to
make the tariff a prominent issue.
ROOSEVELT MAY STAY OUT.
He Has Not Decided Whether He'll
Take Part in Campaign
Oyster Bay , Aug. 18. Theodore
Roosevelt may stay out of politics in
New York state during the coming
campaign as a result of the action of
the republican sftite committee in re
fusing to name him as temporary
chairman of the state convention.
| I The colonel laughed today as he
talked of the mooMng and said that
the result gave him ? enuine pleasure ,
i He explained his attl'ude by saying
that he felt that H.e commltten re
lieved him of all responsibility in con-
| nectlon with the conduct and result
1 of the campaign. He added that he
had not decided whether he would at
tend the convention.
He would talk things over with re
presentative W. W. Cox and other
political leaders of his home district ,

inclined to the belief that it would
be better to stay away and let the

LEARNING HOW TO RACE.
Spanish Yachtsmen Have No Hope ol
Getting the Taft Cup.
Marblehead , Mass. . Aug. 18. "We
are learning a lot about racing evet
if we are not winning prizes , " said om
of the Spanish yachtsmen as he bow
ed his way down the clubhouse lloa' '
today and started off for the secotu
race with his American antagonists.
Although the Spanish yachtsmet
were hopeful that their boats mlghi
draw nearer the three America !
yachts before the races were ovei
and perhaps win a cup or two , evet
the most sanguine of them wen
forced to admit that their chances o
winning the President Taft and tin
Governor Draper cups were ver ;
It transpired that although th <
Chonta of the Spanish fleet led tin
other two boats in their chase afte
the Americans yesterday , she wa
badly handicapepd through a leak ii

Spain the keel was slightly wrencli
ed , but Captain Aranena looked it eve

But in the big sea yesterday some o

IHICAGO AVIATOR'S GOOD FORTUNE -
TUNE DESERTS IN ENGLAND.
TWO ACCIDENTS TO AEROPLANE
The Propeller and Frame Are So Bad
ly Wrecked That Continuation of
Flight Toward London Is Postponed
a Day Narrow Escape from Death.
Chatham , England , Aug. 18. John
B. Moissant , the Chicago aviator who
s attempting the Hy from Paris to
Condon , descended for the second time
.line near hero today , breaking the
iropoller and part of the frame of the
nachine In making the second landing.
The broken parts must be replaced
'rom Paris and a resumption of the
light to London before tomorrow Is
mprobable. Neither Molssaut nor his
nechanician was Injured in the uccl-
Good Luck Deserts Him.
The good fortune which accompa
nied Moissant In tne earlier stages of
: iis flight from Paris and in his record
breaking journey across the channel
with a passenger , seems to have de
serted him with his arrival on English
Motor defects In the aeroplane ,
which yesterday had worked without
a stop , forced him to make two suc
cessive landings when about half way
on the course between London and
Tilmanstone , where he ascended at
4:55 : this morning.
Narrow Escape From Death.
His first descent , a mile from Sit-
tingborne , about thirty-five miles from
London , was due to the displacement
of a small pin in the mechanism , entail
ing an immediate descent. He nar-
rowily escaped in the landing , miss
ing the mouth of a deep chalk pit , a
fall into which would have meant
death for the aviator and his mechani
cian. Repairs to the machine detain
ed him nearly three hours.
He then made a second start , but
had scarcely covered ten miles to
ward his goal when a second accident
brought him down at Ralnham , Kent.
Another Accident to Machine.
A rod connecting up the driving
gear of the aeroplane was fractured ,
stopping the engine and forcing the
Chicagoan to the ground. He landed
in a field , but only skillful handling
of the aeroplane prevented its plung
ing Into a clump of trees.
Moissant made an abrupt turn to
escape the trees and the machine
came down heavily , breaking and
smashing the blade of the propeller.
Moissant and his mechanician climbed
out uninjured , but on looking over
the damage were of the opinion that
repairs could not be made on the spot
and must watt for new parts for which
they immediately telegraphed to Paris.
THE SHOES WE WILL WEAR.
Styles For Next Winter and Spring
Chicago , Aug. 18. Sample lines of
spring shoes which are ready for dis
play by Chicago manufacturers show
gome novel effects in footwear for
men , women and children , as well as
some changes in staple lines.
Among the most striking of the new
effects are velvet and romalne silk
boots and pumps for women , suitable
for evening service , the pumps being
especially adapted for opera wear.
In the men's shoes patent and other
leathers designed on the "corn cure"
last for persons affected with corns
and bunions are expected to meet
with favor. For children there is a
new thing In a shoo with brass but
tons , but the strap effect , sandal and
pump continue in favor. One new
model has a snap button like a purse.
The patent leather sandal for misses
and children is coming into vogue.
Buttons , it is said , will be popular
in the cities , but laces will still be
the favor in the country districts.
Women's shoes for the spring sea
son are to have a slightly high toe
effect with vamps a tritle longer than
In the pas. .
In men's shoes buttons are still pop
ular , but laces are in the majority.

Bearing out the assertion that New

by year , one dressmaker said yester
day that only ten years ago the wli-
'iowy ' creature with a 31 or 36-inch
bust measurement commanded the
general attention of the modistes ,
whereas today the general measure
ment is l8 ! to 40 , while a growing de-

The head of tne suit department
of a large store said yesterday : "Fat
women need no longer lament that
they cannot buy gowns with the fa
cility that slim women can. We have
so many demands from women whoso
measurement runs into the forties

them all this fall. "
THE MATINEE IDOL PASSES.
Girls Are as Interested In Able Women
New York , Aug. 1 ? . The matinee
Idol Is practically a thing of the past.
So said Lionel Walsh , as he rested
from the rehersnl in "The Wife Tam
er , " at the Maxine Elliot theatre.
"Everything , " he explained , "runs in
cycles , and this is not the matinee
Idol period. It Is just a little too bad
to have him gone , because certainly
at one time there wus a greater glam
our about the stage than tiiere In
"Why has ho gone ? Well , the reason -
son is complex one can't answer that
in just a word. You see , the women
used to make a veritable hero of the
man on the stage. They have ceased
to do thnt. You don't see girls buying -
ing the pictures of their favorite act
ors now as you did , and If he doesn't
act well and can't Iiold their Interest
the girls won't po to see him. They'll
go to another theater where some
able woman Is playing.
"You can't fool the women today.
They have become too critical A
number of years ago. you know , the
actor was not rwolvpcl by the public
ns he Is today. Ho was a thing apart ,
now he lias convinced the people that
he Is not n mere puppet , but a real
man. This change In the social po
sition of the stage has done a great
deal towards dominating the matinee
"In many Instances women who go
to the play know the actors. They
are friends or have mot thorn socially
two or three times. Tney have ceased
to have that tremendous curiosity
that used to possess them about an
actor's life. And that he lends n sane ,
more or less prosaic exlstanco also
detracts from the fascination.
"Very few actors today receive
what is known in the profession as
the 'mash note.1 Girls used 1o write
to tlio actor , I believe , because they
did not have much to think about and
the romantic side of their minds
worked over time. At present the
; foung women of the country nro ft
protu hus > lot and they don't find
time for that sort of thing and , besides
sides If they did they know n great
deal too much about the stage and
