Republican Voters of Nebraska Put
Upon Their Guard.
Iho IiatcHt Scheme of the Democratic
managers to Secure the Klcotion
of tlicir Candidates Lin
coln News Notes.
LINCOLN , Oct. 29.1
I Bogus election tickets are abroad in
the land. The plan of these tickets is
somewhat original , but they bear the
( stamp of democratic genius and knav
ery. The play ib not only made upon
I' ' the republican party , but also upon the
union labor party. Under the caption
of "Tho Republican Ticket" the presi
dential candidates are intact and also
the electors , but the first name on the
state ticket is that of John A. McShano ,
over the words , "Democratic Candidate
for Governor. " The union labor ticket
receives the same deal. But following
the name of McSh ano on the republi
can ticket is that of George D. Mioklo-
John for lieutenant governor , and then
that of Isaac Honthorn , the union labor
candidate for secretary of stato. The
name of J. E. Hill follows for stale
treasurer , and that ot William Poyntor
for auditor of public account * . These
tickets have been scattered broadcast
over the state , but the package that
came to Lincoln fell into the wrong
hands , and the scheme of the wlly.dom-
ocrats explodes before the oppor
tunity comes for them to do
any dirt. But the desperation of the
democratic party lenders is none the
less apparent. They evidently intend
to secure prestige and representation
by fair moans or foul. As soon ns Chair
man Richards discovered that buch
tickets were Hooding the state ho nd-
drcfascd a letter to Attorney General
Loose for hlb opinion as to the legality
of such tickets , and secured yesterday
evening his reply , which is as follows :
Your communication of the 2Gth inst.
is at hand asking my opinion as to the
legality of a ticket headed republican
ticket , with the name ot another there
on , not found In the regular ballot hav
ing such heading.
In answer thereto I would state that
under the provisions of section 115 of
chapter 20 , entitled elections , all such
schemes to deceive the electors are de
clared to bo fraudulent.
D Sect Ion 110 of same chapter makes it
a criminal offense for any person caus
ing ballots to be printed with a desig
nated heading , containing a nitno or
names not found on the regular ballot
having euch heading. Or , Tor any per
son to knowingly peddle or distribute
any such ballots.
Tha statute is remedial , and to arrive
at the intention of the law makers wo
must consider the old law , the mischief
nnd the remedy. With this rule In
view there can be no doubt but what the
intention of the law makers was to avoid
any deception that might bo practiced
on the elector. And I would deem it
the duty of th-i canvassing bo.ird to re-
fiwo to count the vote ot anyone whoso
name is printed or patted in print upon
the ticket , unless the name of that por-
eon is found upon the regular ballot
having-such heading.
The ticket sent mo for inspection is
, headed 'republican ticket , ' and contains
tbp names cf presidential 'electors.1 Now
under the word 'state' on such ballot to
irint the words 'democratic candidate
or governor , ' or 'prohibition candidate
or governor , ' or 'union labor candidate
or governor , ' or any other officer , and
allowing thereafter a name not found
on the regular ballot of the party of
iuch heading , is , in my opinion , an il-
ogal vote for such candidate for gover-
lor or such other ofllcor.
The heading is 'Republican Ticket. '
The words 'democratic , ' prohibition , ' or
union labor , ' candidate for governor ,
as printed on the ticket , is a designa
tion of the officer to bo voted for ; a name
found thereon , other than the name
! ound on the regular ballot , is but a
schemes or device to mislead , and con
trary to law. Tlio only method by
which such name can bo legally counted
Is for the elector , or some other person ,
to erase the name found thereon , and
write in the place thereof the name of
the person the elector wishes to vote
for. Any other method is in my opin
ion illegal. Yours very truly ,
Attorney General.

60U1 > KOll THAYKK.
The Grand Army boys of Lincoln are
Folld for the re-election of Governor
Thayor. There will bo no half way
work on their part to secure this result.
At a special meeting ot the post , called
on last Saturday evening , there was a
full attendance , and the action of the
Call in bolting the governor WHS dis
cussed pro and con and denounced in
no unmonsuicd terms. Resolutions
were introduced favoring the solid
support of the order to Governor
Thayer , and to-day petitions have been
circulated all day long among the old
soldlera , and. TilK l\KB \ representative
is reliably informed , with splendid re
sults. It is stated that with a single
exception , oo far n peon , the boys have
agreed to stand by him nrst and last
and all the tlino. It la perhaps well to
state , however , that the mooting was
not called for regular business work
connected with the order , but as a body
of citizens to discuss the best interests
of the state in the preferment of guber
natorial honors. So the charge of
"ollensivo partisanship" cannot bo made
against the boys.
The governor to-day appointed the
following Nebraskans notaries public :
Peter J. Hanson , Plattsmouth , Cass
county ; S. A. Searlo , Nelson , Nuckolls
county ; Walter M. Koeimn , South

Frontier county ; C. Jensen , jr. , Jensen ,
Jefferson county ; John P. Aruott , flem-
ingsford , Box Butte county.
Dora Uhrman and Mary Harpster
filed petitions in the district court
against their respective spouses for
divorce to-day , on the grounds of
cruelty , desertion and failure to pro
vide for their comforts and wants. They
say they prefer to fight the battle of life
Hon. Josiah Rogers , of Syracuse , ono
of the most prominent democrats of
Otoo county , v-as in Lincoln to-day. Ho
concedes the election of Horn , repub
lican , to the houbo , and when pinned
down was not so sure but what the
whole ticket was on the road to victory.
Two young Bohemians , aged forty-
five and forty-two years respectfully ,
were married to-day by County Judge
Stewart. They hail from Crete and
answered to the names of Frank Novak
and Mrs. Antonia Nowatino. They
looked as happy ns a youthful married
couple newly wedded.
T. J. Mahony , of Omaha , and Colonel
E. D. Webster , of Stratton , were regis
tered at the Cnpltal hotel to-day.
Colonel Webster lias his eye on san
guine democrats with money to give

llrouehr lii a New Conundrum.
Chicago Tribune : "I have got a
conundurum , " said the visitor , timidly
sitting down on the corner of a chair ,
"that I think is new. Why is a man
who lavs out a now subdivision like
pickles ? "
"Because he c-c-cumbors the ground ? "
hn/arded the real estate editor.
"No , that isn't the right answer. "
"Because , " suggested the exchange
editor , "it makes him sour if ho doesn't
ketchup with the "
"No. no ; that Isn't it either. Give it
up ? Because ho makes lots of acres.
See ? Acres achres. Spoils the teeth ,
you know. Makes acres into lota "
And then they rose up as oue man and
threw him out of tlio window.
Tlio late Hon. John Wentworth used
to give the following account of the man
ner in which ho gained the cognomen
by which ho was so well known : "When
I was going to school down in Connecti
cut I was the longest , skinniest boy you
over saw. I was fourteen years old. I
used to have a habit In those days of
getting my heels up on the scat , so that
my knees towered above my head. I

when ono of the examiners came around.
Ho said to the teacher , 'What's that boy
doing standing up on the bench ? Why
don't you make him sit down ? ' The
Tlio teacher bald I was sittin' down.
'That's the way ho hits'said the teacher.
'Who is hoV' asked the examiner.
'John Wentworth , ' saiu the1 teacher.

An Anaconda In the Street.
Now York Sun : John Burckhardt , of
41 First street , had nine feet and six
inches of real anaconda neatly coiled up
in a market basket on tlio lire escape
outside of his parlor window. It came
out of the manhole of a bower near the
corner of First street and Second ave
nue on Wednesday afternoon , just as
school was letting out at Grammar
school No. 79 on First street , a few doors
awa.y , and hundreds of children wore
pouring out. When first seen it was
gliding along First street toward First
avenue. The children saw it and
shrieked :
"Look outfor the crocodile ! " screamed
one of them ns they ran. Their cries
brought hundreds moro of persons flock
ing from doors all along the block , and
heads appeared at every window. The
school janitors and other grown persons
hustled the children back into the
building and up the high stoops in the
neighbornood. As the snake moved
along , men , women and children tied
before it , screaming warnings to others
At first the snake took'its time about
covering ground , but in a minute or two
the throng , pressing closer behind it ,
apparently annoyed or terrified it. It
stopped and threw itself into a coil.with
throe or four feet of very vicious look
ing body vibrating upright from the
center and a mouth eight inches long
gaping open to lot a forked tongue spit
out. The children screamed louder
than over and everybody that could run
did so.
It was at this moment that Mr. Burck
hardt first saw the snake that ho had
celled up in his market basket. The
noise in the street had called him to
his window , and just as lie hud taken
ono look at it the creature sprang for
ward. Mr. Burckhardt's hair still rises
perceptibly as ho tolls of it.
"I could just ROC It as it Hashed by , "
ho said. ' 'Four men had run out from
the wheelwright's shop with whatever
they could lay hands on for a club. The
snake stopped again , seeing the crowd ,
and made itSelf into a coil ready to
spring. Ono of the men jumped for
ward and hit it a terrible blow on the
back of the neck. It dropped to the
pavement and before it could got up
again the rest of the men and every
body else that could got anything for
a club wore on top of it hammering the
life out of it. It fought desperately ,
but it had no cliinuo. ) "
The snake is ijnd4oubtedl.v a genuine
anaconda , nearly full grown. Its body
measures oaailyla foot in circumference
ut its thickest part ) and its length was
verified yesterday by Mr. Buckhardt.
who stretched 'it out on his lloor and
measured it. It is po cut and bruised
from the boating1 ( t had with clubs that
it is doubtful if i its skin can bo pro-
served. It is suplx > sed that it came
from some South American vessel un
loading at nn Esftf river dock , crept
along the sowet-s ! 'and ' along them to
the place whoroMt reached the street.
Some sailor probab'ly brought it from
South America. It may have come
from there when young , hidden in fruit
or other cargo , and have grown to its
present size in the sewers , but that is
not likely.
A. Sea or Seiuor Water.
Now York Sun : A company has pur
chased the Seltzer spring at Saratoga ,
N. Y. , and will utilise its watorb for the
purpose of liberating and storing , in
liquid form , the carbonic acid gas with
which it abounds. To do this , oxton-
slvo arrangements are being made upon
a largo amount of invested capital , The
establishment of the plant is under the
supervision of Mr. Oscar Brulil r , a
German export.
The' Seltzer spring , located on Spring
avenue , waa developed by Dr. Ha kins
Icb3 than three years ago. The drill
was put clown to ii depth of 600 feet. At
this depth an abundant supply of water
was found llowing from a crevice in the
rock bottom. A few days ago , to assure
himself of the depth of the spring ,
Mr. Brunler sounded it with
a line and plummet ; but instead
of resting at 600 the weight sank
the whole length of the lino. ! X)0 ) feet.
Other soundings have since been made ,
the weight used being a piece of inch
gas pipe flllon with lead and weighing
thirty-four pounds , until a depth of 3.300
feet has been reached , and yet without
touching bottom or any obstacle. No
further sounding will bo made until in
struments expressly designed for the
purpose can bo procured.
Prof. Brunler admits it as possible
that the line and weight could have
been carried away by some powerful
current , but ho holds to his original be
lief in the existence of a mibterranian
&ca of greater or less extent , and that
there is undoubtedly some connection
between it and the water of the ocean.
In other words , that Saratoga Is over a
vast wutor-iilled cavern , tlio roof of
which is about 500 feet thick. Ho albo
thinks it probable that at a given depth
and temperature carbonic acid gas may
bo found in a liquid form. The specific
gravity of the liquid gas is about nine
degrees lighter than water , which
would readily cause the water to climb
300 feet above the" ocean level. Should
the existence of a subtorranian nca bo
established , It would put to flight many
theories and scientific speculations as to
the bourco and course of the many min
eral springs hero.
A Word to YOUIIK liadios.
Five Talents of Women : We must
give all the nice , modest girls wo know
credit for not consciously endeavoring
to catch husbands. If men fall in love
with them and desire to marry them ,
and they are the right sort of men , and
the girls can love in return , well and
good they marry , and hoixi to ho
happy over after , but they will not run
after men. or think in everything they
do or say , "Can I catch a lish with this
b.iit ? "
It must , however , bo confessed that
there are girls who , instead of making
themselves useful and calmly resting
in their maiden dignity , think only of
getting married , and use qucbtionablo
moans to achieve their purpose. For
getting the proverb , "Tho more haste
the less bpeod. " This bert of girl not
unf requently assumes a "fast" style of
talk , manner and dress , in order to
make herself attractive to the opposite
sex. In doing BO she makes a great
mistake. Fish may nibble at her bait ,
but they will notallow thoinbolvos to ho
caught. A loud girl may attract atten
tion and liavo half an hour of popu
larity , but she Is a. type of the short
sightedness of some of her BOX. Men of
the baser sort may amuse themselves
with her , but no man worth having
would think of marrying her.
There is a liberty that makes us free
and u liberty that makes us slaves , and
the girls who take liberties with mod
esty of speech and manner , and who
cross over the boundary line into mus-
culino territory , are not morn free but
more slavish than before. And the ap
probation of men , which is the end in
view , is loat by the means taken to gain
it. Whatever men may bo themselves ,
they like gentleness , modesty and
purity in act and thought in women.
They want their wives to be better than
themselves. They think that women
should bo the conservators of all that la
restrained , chivalrous and gentle.
Ho Spilt in the Wheat.
Chicago Times : When his roynl high
ness the Prince of Walei visited Chicago
cage , John Woatworth wu muyor , and
one of the nldormcn was Fernando
Jones. Mayor Wcntworth mapped out
the programme of entertainments for
the distinguished caller and his suite ,
and each day during the royal sojourn
some ono alderman was designated to
head the procession. It came Alder
man Jones' day , and ho took the party
to the grain elevators. Mayor Wentworth -
worth was in the midst , for ho went
every day as the generalissimo , the al
derman being merely the master of do-
tails. The largest elevator at that time
was the ono still standing near the Illi
nois Central station. The blooded vis
itors and the escorts inspected thor
oughly. Alderman Jones directed the
gaze of his highness to a mammoth hop
per filled with the golden cereal of the
northwest , liis highness was then an
overgrown lad who retained some boyish
manners. There never was a boy who
when ho looked into a depth did not
spit in it. The Prince of Wales gazed
into this great depth of wheat and , un
consciously perhaps , ho spat in the hop
Mayor Wcntworth was standing some
distance from the scone , but ho called
out so that everyone in the party heard
it : "Say , prince , your highness , you
mustn't spit in that wheat. Don't do
that again , please. "
Not only the prince but everybody
prebont roared. Mayor Wontwortn
then came around to the hopper and
apologized to his highness. A gentle
man who was present and hoard this
apology repeated it to mo to-dny , as
nearly as ho could remember it.
Mr. Wcntworth said : "Your high
ness , this wheat is to bo loaded in the
vessel down there , and is to pass through
the royal dominions of your highness'
mother by way of the Wclland canal ,
down the St. Lawrence , and then to betaken
taken across the ocean. This very
wheat is to go to your highness'mother ,
her majesty , the queen , aa a present.
She may huvo it made into bread for
the royal table , your highncbs , and I
don't want it spoiled , Your highness
will understand why I spoke so abruptly
about your spitting in the wheat. "
A Hurled Cedar Forest.
Donnisvillo , ( N. J. ) Letter : An in
dustry , the like of which does not exist
anywhere else in the world , furnishes
scores of people in this part of Now
Jersey with remunerative employment ,
and has niado comfortable fortunes for
many eituons. It is the novel business
of mining cedar trees digging from
far beneath the surface immoiibo
logs of sound and aromatic cedar.
The fallen and submerged cedar
forests of southern Now Jersey wore dis
covered llrst beneath the Donnibvillc
swamps soventy-ilvo years ago , and have
been a bourco of constant interest to
geologists and ( .cientibts generally over
binco. There are standing at the pres
ent day no such enormous specimens of
the cedar anywhere on the face of the
glebe as are found imbedded in the deep
much of the Donniuvillo swamps. Some
of the trees have boon uncovered meas
uring six foot in diameter , and trees
four feet through are common.
Heading Off a Prohibition Committee.
Boston Courier : She was a Boston
woman and although the accidents of
her life placed her in u prominent po
sition in a western city , eho still main
tained the courage of her convictions ,
and un independence which savored
strongly of Now England.
The city whore she dwelt was at ons
time greatly given over to the vagaries
of the prohibition movement and Mrs.
X. was teased and badgered to a degree
which she could ill brook.
After she had been interviewed and
written to and solicited to help the
cauje in one manner and another , she
was oue dajr Informed .that a committee
of women wore coining that afternoon
to make a last effort to induce her
to join the prohibition movement. Mrs.
X. smiled placidly and gave her ordora
to her servants. 'When the visitors ar
rived they were met with much cor
diality , and the conversation kept , by
the cleverness of the hostess , to strictly
impartial subjects. Just as the commit
tee wore clearing their throats to broach
their errand , the door opened and in
walked a procession of demure maida
bearing trays upon which were punch ,
wines and liquors in moro variety than
the horrified callers had probably over
encountered. Of course they all de
clined the refreshments with nirs of the
most indignant virtue , but ovou the
prohibition committee of a western city
lacked the hardihood to invite Into
their body a lady who sat sipping her
wino with the nonchalance which Mrs.
X. assumed for the occasion. It maybe
added that Mrs. X. was never troubled
by them again. _
The Rcliiclous Taut.
Glebe Democrat : A queer state ot
things is found to exist ns to using a re
ligious test on the witness stand.
Twenty-six states and territories forbid
the exclusion of testimony owing to the
religious belief , or unbelief , of the wit
ness. These states are : Ari/ona , Cali
fornia , Colorado , the District of Colum
bia , Florida , Georgia , Idaho , Indiana ,
Iowa , Kansas , Maine , Massachusetts ,
Michigan , Minnesota , Mi.Stiissipni , Mis
souri , Montana , Nebraska , Nevada , No w
York , Ohio , Oregon , Wisconsin , Texas ,
Utah and Vermont. This loaves twenty
states and territories that still apply the
religious test , to their disgrace. Early
Christians , in heathen courts , refuse to
tuku paths ; and the authority of scrip
ture is fully against it ; but the usage
came in as the nges grow corrupt. It
is to bo hoped no state will long retain
this rolio of barbaric intolerance. It is
well known thut the oath is valueless.
