It has Ivoen claimed that L. D. Rich

that, therefore, there would, on this

tween electing him or Mr. Boyd for gov

petition wo have no proof of it, and
don't believe that ho did. Anyhow, it
wasn't a republican governor who vetoed
the bill.
Lincoln is getting to havo a go -1
many suspicious characters. A mntiL -ted
human limb, evidently that of a
woman, was found Saturday, in tho
vault of a place not yet occupied. It
was found wrapped in three copies of
the Chicago Times of January l., March
15 and March 22. The city physician
gave it as his opinion tiiat it had
been recently severed from tho body,
and that it was of a woman somewhat
past tho prime of life.
Ten o'clock Sunday night the firemen
of Omaha were called to save the Paxton
house. At 11:30 the names had been en
tirely extinguished. The fire originated
in the kitchen and destroyed 823,000 of
property, fully insured. A falling wall
caught four firemen. Captain Carter,
one of the injured men, died Monday
morning at 6, never having gained con
sciousness from the time of his removal
from the wreck. At noon Monday,
Mulvihill, McGuire and Downs, the
other injured men, were reported as im
proving and resting easily. All three
are in a fair way to recover.
Sunday evening, Chicago suffered one

How It Worked and Some or the Mi-UkM
Made by Voters.
Tho new law gave almost universal
satisfaction. It is certainly the best
method ever et devised for the casting
Of a secret ballot. The occupation of
the ward bummer and the corrupt ioli
tician has, of course, not altogether
ceased, but it is now imiossible to know
how a man voted, and the purchase of
votes cannot be readily effected unless
tho purchaser knows that he gets what
he pays for.
Another time, so many mistakes will
not bo made in the preparation of tho
Some were voted without any indica
lion of preference. Some with an X be
fore the name. Some with an X be
tween the name and the party designa
tion. Some with pencil marks instead
of ink. Some scratched the names of
candidates they didn't want, but failed
to signify their preference by placing
the X. Some voted for three of the four
names mentioned for school lxard, when
they were entitled to vote for two only,
and. jis it could not lie ascertained which
two, they lost their votes. Some voters
not using a blotter, considerable trouble
was caused to the judges liecause the
folding of the tickets placed a duplicate
X where not deMgned. Somo insisted
on telling tho judges aloud, how they
wished them to mark the ballots. Some
wrote tho name of their candidate after
the printed name and without making
the X. Tho most trouble came from in
sisting on the folding of tho ballot so as
to exKso the names of the two judges
written on the back.
If you can read and mako your mark,
your vote is absolutely secret; if you
cannot, tho knowledge is shared by those
who are sworn to secrecy in the matter.
There is no ticket peddling; there is no
pulling and hauling at or near tho polls.
Tho demand for tho Australian ballot
system Mas been met by the recent leg
islature with a good law, which will ap
p.oe itself more and moro with the
people, as tho years go by. There is one
feature that wo have noticed of value in
a few cities of tho state in tho late elec
tion, and that is very likely to be ex
tensively used in the future, viz: The
nomination of candidates otherwise than
by convention or primary, that is, by
certificate of nomination, signed by "not
less than ftMl electors, when the nom
ination is for an office to bo filled by the
electors of tho entire state, and need not
exceed T0 when the election is for an
office to be filled by tho electors of a
city, county, district, or other division
less than the state, and need not exceed
20 when tho nomination is for an office
to le filled by the electors of a town
ship, precinct or ward." Women can
sign such a certificate when it applies to
an officer for whom they have the legal
right to vote, aud no person shall sign
more than one certificate of nomination
for any office. Now that the ballot, for
tho first time becomes for all voters, an
absolute secret, tho above feature of tho
law may lo used honestly, in the public
interest, or it may be used (as can read
ily le seen), to weaken the force of a
party nomination by having a number
of candidates of liko mind, while the op
position remains "solid" for their own
party nomination. This, however, is a
game that two can play at, and the new
way is a long stride towards securing
purity in elections, as well as in nom
inations. The Methodist Conference.
The hearty manner in which people of
all denominations in this city havo taken
hold ot tho plan to secure the Methodist
conference for Omaha in 1892 promises
well for the project. To some extent the
preliminary work has been taken out or
the hands or the Methodists, or, at least,
lopped or its denomiuationalism.
Members or other churches have sub
scrilied most lilierally to tho guarantee
fund and Omaha has shown heiseir
ready ami coinjietent to meet tho emer
gency. It is to bo hoed that the in
tluence in tho church which opposed
Omaha in its fight for tho conference
will Ihj entirely satisfied with what she
guaranteed. Tho local committee has
accomplished a great labor in securing
the fund and procuring the necessary
accommodations. It has been success
ful! and tho appointment of tho various
sub-committees completes the arrange
ments. Tho Methodist church may rest as
sured that its memlers have not at
tempted too much in securing the con
ference, ami it may also bo certain that
Omaha sis a city will not Tail to welcome
most heartily tho delegates or so powor
ful and enterprising a church. IWorld
Herald. How folds Are Cured in Alaska.
Some or tho readers or The Journal
may wii to know how colds are cured
in th rroen regions or the north. H
j the rollowing extract from a recent
letter or C E. Coon, a druggist in
Juneau, Alaska, will interest them. He
sa s: "Chamberlain's Cough Remedy is
selling lietter than ever. It is harder to
get into the boxes than to sell the Rem
edy after they are opened." Mr. Coon's
sales were rather light Tor the first year
he handled this medicine, but have in
creased each enr as the people there
become better acquainted with its valu
able proierties, until it is now the most
popular medicine he handles for coughs
and colds, which shows that real merit
is as much appreciated in the far north
as at home, and in time tho best is sure
to become tho most popular. For sale

If there is anything more that Omaha
wants, let her ask Governor Boyd for it.

This is supposed to have been written
by Mr. Davis immediately after the an
nouncement of Heimrod's appointment
as oil inspector, a position for which Mr.
Davis himself was an applicant. A re
publican remarked upon seeing the
above paragraph "the pig squealing
under tho fence!" As a journalist, how
ever, we think he has a right to squeal,
and squeal long and loud, and keep it
up. It looks a little, sometimes, as
though the only class of newspaper men
who do not fail of ''recognition" in a
substantial way by candidates are those
who get into possession of ugly facts and
hold them suspended until paid for si
lence. The dispensing of public pa
tronage is a source of great weakness to
the dispenser, and is pretty sure, soon
or later, to tindo him. The better way
is not even in sight, in the dim distance.

What Two Well liser in Seanh of
Water Found.
Henry Heiler and H. It. Fisher, two
well diggers, were digging a well on the
property of Lou Adams, Forty-fifth and
Leavenworth streets Saturday. When
a depth of forty-live foot had been
reached the lottom suddenly fell out of
the hole and the men had a narrow es
cape. They managed to save their lives
by quickly grasping the ropo of tho
windlass which was hanging down tho
well. As it was, all their tools were
swept away into what was then sup
posed to bo a subterranean stream.
For a time the water rushed by tho
opening with great rapidity and gave
out a peculiar sulphurous odor. After
a time the rushing and the odor ceased.
The water is very clear now that it has
become quiet and ban the taste of pure
mountain stream water.
Soundings were made in an endeavor
to ascertain the depth of tho cavern, but
100 feet of rope let down failed to find
the bottom.
Mr. Adams has abandoned tho hole as
a well and will have it securely lKmrded
up. Tho walls of the shaft near tho ljot
torn are rapidly caving in, caused, no
doubt, by tho action of the water during
tho first rush.
Last night the surface or the water at
tho lottom or the well was perfectly
smooth. No current was visible.
It is probable that tho well diggers
havo tapped soup of tho many subter
ranean streams that carry off the great
rainfall of Nebraska. Omaha -Boo,

Washington Letter.
From our regular correHondeiit.
Secretary Blaine was closeted for sev
eral hours today with Sir Julian Paunce
fote, tho British minister, Sir Charles
Tupper, ami several other representa
tives of the Canadian government. This
conference is understood to have been
informal, and was granted by Mr. Blaine
at the request of the Canadians for the
purpose of exchanging views on the
subject of reciprocity. It is not known
whether a definite agreement was reach
ed as to a common basis for negotiation,
as Mr. Blaine declines to talk about the
conference, considering it only as a
friendly talk about official significance.
Unless there was a great change on the
part or the Canadians from their recent
expressed opinion as to what Canada
was prepared to offer us it is certain
that no agreement was reached, as it is
known that Mr. Blaine will never con
sent to any arrangement that will injure
the agricultural interest of this country.
There is a well defined suspicion here
that the Canadian government is laying
wires for the purpose of trying to get
some benefit in some manner not yet
clearly apparent out of the arbitration
of the Beh ring sea question. However,
ir they can bol Mr. Blaine they aro
welcome to everything they can get. He
hns not leen Tooled yet.
The international sensation caused by
tho request of Baron Fava, the Italian
minister, made of the department of
state for his passports lasted jii6t four
days. Last week everyone was talking
of the situation, today, owing to the
dignified and positive manner in which
Mr. Blaino answered the silly vaorings
and demands or the Italian government
ami entirely reversed tho situation in
tho eyes ot tho civilized world, tho inci
dent is regarded as a matter or history,
although it will occupy an important
place in tho diplomatic records for some
time to come. Tho silly talk uliotit
changing the constitution of the United
States for the purpose of giving tho gen
eral government authority to protect the
citizens of foreign countries resident in
any portion of this country does not
emanate from the administration, nor
docs it, so far as I can learn, reflect the
sentiments of a single memler of the
administration. If being put upon pre
cisely the samo footing as native Amer
icans isn't good enough for the foreign
subjects, they had better return home.
The idea of giving them more than our
own citizens is rather more than the
American people will stand.
Senator Manderson, chairman of the
senate committee on printing, after a
month's rest, has returned to this city in
ortler to begin the arduous duty imposed
upon his committee by congressional
resolution, of investigating the method
of printing and distributing all classes
of public documents including the Con
gressional Record, tor the purpose or
reporting a bill to reduce the expendi
tures in this line, ir it can bo done with
out injury to tho public interest. There
are unquestionably gross abuses in the
present system of distributing public
documents, but a reform would take
away some of the perquisites of con
gressmen and their hangers-on, and is
for that reason doubtful. Another con
siderable expense that may easily be
avoided is the printing of a quantity of
each and every bill that congressmen
are worried into introducing for their
crank constituents, an editing commit
tee could remedy this by reporting upon
the bills that should be printed at gov
ernment expense. About ninety per
cent of the bills printed under the
present system entail an absolute waste
of money, as they are not again beard
from until the next session when they
are again introduced and printed at
government expense.

The figure 0 in our dates will make a lone .tay.
So man or woman now- living will ever date a
locurnent without uf.m the figure 9. It stands
in the third place in 1890, w here it w ill remain ten
years and then move up to .second place in 1900,
where it will rct for one hundred years.
There is another "9" which h-is also come to stay.
It is unlike tlie figure 9 in our dates in the respect
that it ha already moved up to first place, where
it will permanently rcm.iiu. It U called the "No.
V High Ana Vti-c!i r A. Wilson Sew ins Machine.
The "No. 9" was endorsed for first place by the
esperts of Eurojx; at the Iari Exposition of 1S&9,
where, after a M-verecontest with the leading ma
chines of the world, it wns awarded the only
Grand Prize given to family sewing machines, all
others on cxhihit having nceivt-d lower awards
of Kld medjla, etc The French Government
also recognized itssupcriority by the decoration of
Mr. Nathaniel Whei Ier, l'residentof the company,
with the Cross of the Legion of Honor.
The "No. 9" is not an old nrichir.e improved
upon, but is an entirely new m.ichino, and tho
Grand Prize at Paris was awarded it as the grand
est advance in .sewing machine mechanism of the
age. Those who buy it can rest assured, there,
