WHAT WITTEN SAYS.
About 200 Claims in First and 600 In
Second Class , He Says.
Omaha , Nov. l.- Persons who drew
lumbers in the recent land opening
in Bennett and Mellette counties ,
South Dakota , need not be alarmed
over the reports that the state of
South Dakota Is to have all of the
'irst class land for schools , according
; o a statement by Judge James W.
Witten , superintendent of the land
opening , who passed through Omaha
on his way back to Washington.
"The state Is entitled to sections 1G
and 30 in each township , and there
are about thirty townships , which
gives the state about sixty sections of
land , scattered throughout the thirty
townships opened , without regard to
the quality of the land. The only
power of choice possessed by the i
state Is In cases where parts of sec
tlons 1C or 3G In a township have
been alloted to Indians , In which case
the state may select , In other parts
of the same township , nn area equal
to that so allotted to Indians in the
state's two sections of the township
There Is comparatively little land ir
the state's townships allotted to In
dlans. I do not know just what per
cent , but it is very small and the facl
that the deficiency in the state's sec
tions must bo supplied from the sam <
township in each case makes it 1m
possible for the state to concentrat <
on the best land of the opening.
"Thero are about ICO to 200 clalmi
of the best class , and about GOO In tin
second class. I should say there an
about 1,200 or more worth filing on
There were over 63,000 registrations.1
Judge Witten declared that the fac
was published in advance and sen
out with all circulars and other ir
formation that there would bo certal
reservations and withdrawals whic
would reduce the area to be opened
somewhat from the figures given In
advance. The extent to which the
area would bo reduced could not bo
foretold , he said.
JOKES OF HALLOWE'EN.
The Night Resulted In a Number of
Them at Nellgh.
Nellgh , Neb. , Nov. 4. Special to
The News : On account of the extra
precautions taken by the city officials
in supplying special police In automo
biles on the night of Hallowo'en , very
little damage was done to property ,
and aside from giving the windows on
the business streets a thorough soapIng -
Ing , It was probably the most quiet
night experienced In Nellgh for sev
There were some good jokes played ,
however , that wore Intended to have
been kept from the nubile , but these
leaked out and tlio laugh has been on
those Interested. All the public buildIngs -
Ings had special watchmen , and Ed.
Getcholl was assigned the job to see
that no damage was attempted at the
Second ward school building. During
the course of the evening a crowd of
young men concluded to visit Mr.
( lotchell , who received them cordially ,
entertaining them with stories , and
the boys In turn rendered several se
lections from the Gospel hymns. Dur
ing the song service one of the young
men drew away from the crowd and
called up the police , stating that the
watchman had been bound and gagged
and that a rough house was In prog
ress. Chief of Police Nichols and
Night Officer Jackson made the hurry
call In an automobile , and upon arrlv-
ing at tlie school building and being
admitted found Mr. Gctchcll surround
ed by the boys and all singing : "God
Be Witli You Till Wo Meet Again. " It
goes without saying that the officers
departed without making any arrest.
One of the same crowd telephoned
George Fletcher , county treasurer ,
that his son Harold had been arrested
and was in jail. Mr. Fletcher told the
Informant that If his boy did some
thing that caused him to bo placed in
jail he considered it proper and just.
It was the plan of tlio boys to got Mr.
Fletcher to walk down town , but this
failed. They were more successful in
tlio next attempt.
The telephone at the residence of
William Wolfe started ringing furi
ously , and the head of the household
answered. The person at the other
end of the line informed Mr. Wolfe
that ho was Wellington McConnell ,
! and stated that his son Alexander was
In Jail. Although Mr. Wolfe had been
confined to his home for a couple of
days on account of sickness , he im
mediately prepared to get down town
to tbo business district as soon as
possible and ascertain the cause why
his son should be held In the county
I bastlle. The first person he met on
his way down town was McConuell ,
I who stated that Mr. Wolfe was so
, badly rattled that he could with dlf-
I flculty make clear his statements , and
i all of his remarks were a complete
puzzle to "Mack. " The joke was soon
I discovered , and the drfy following the
I cigars were passed by the one recelv-
. Ing the telephone message.
CREIGHTON VS. SOUTH DAKOTA

Omaha , Nov. 4. Creighton will line
up against South Dakota at football
] on the Creighton field this afternoon.

' fast backfield. They started out by

ELLIOTT WILL CARRY CUMING
Will More Than Overcome a Normal
Majority of 400 Against Him.
West Point , Neb. , Nov. 4. Special
to The News : The political pot In
Cuming county is boiling merrily. In
county affairs the chances for elec
tion of Milt. Knight , republican , as
, sheriff are considered good. For
treasurer , Herman Zeplin , republican ,
I vfho is the present incumbent ,
' lias a practical walkaway , his demo
cratic opponent being comparatively
unknown and being further handicap
ped by the fact of his being a saloon
keeper. Mr. Zcplin's past term has
demonstrated his excellent qualities
as a custodian of the public funds ,
and in the opinion of nearly every
body entitle him to another term. Miss
Emma R. Miller , present county su
perintendent , republican , will run un
opposed for her second term. County
Judge Louis Dewald , democratic , will
also hold Ills office again , his peculiar -
liar fitness for the position he has
. held so worthily for the past three
terms having been fully demonstrated
to the people of Cuming county who
have eliminated party lines and unit-
i'ed ' upon him as the man for the place.
' , The judge has established a very en-
viable record In his administration of
* the affairs of decedents coming before
. him , in that he has always conducted
! those matters with a minimum of cost
i to tbo parties interested. His policy
in the general conduct of his office
has been to discourse fictitious litiga
tlon and in this he has been eminent
ly successful. In view of the fact
that the estates now and In the neat
future coming before him are verj
largo and the citizens regard these
qualities as a valuable asset and pro
pose to retain the judge in office
as long as he can be induced to serve
them. For county clerk , W. H. Har
stick , democratic , Is opposed by C. C
Malchow , republican. The office o
clerk of the district court will be con
tested-for by Carl C. Kramer , republl
can and Otto II , Zacek , democratic
Mr. Zacek appears to have the Insld
track , Kramer being comparative ! ;
unknown to the voters , while Mi
Z&cek ia a native son of Cumin
county , representing the younger an
more rlrlle and progressive elemen
- v t - *
of citizenship and Is besides , a man' '
of very high Intellectual attainments.
For congress , It Is confidently expect
ed and believed that James C. Elliott ,
republican , will carry the county. Ills
long residence here , his high char
acter and his personal popularity com-
blno to Insure a largo complimentary
vote , sufficiently largo , It Is hoped , to
overcome the normal majority of 400
In the county. The tendency of the
times Is moro and moro apparent to
break away from party lines and to
support the man , in local affairs , most
capable of fulfilling the duties of tlio
office with honor and profit to his
