Smith Si Holmes , South Omaha , has cnterod
the republican raeo in the Fourth district
for county commissioner and , while time is
short for him to make a light in , ho proposes
to do some lively work.
Frank Bandhauer , Daniel D O'Connoll ,
Charles Brandos und George Holmes , Jr. ,
are making a 2iO : ! dash for Justice of the
peace m the First district , which Dick
O'Keeffo says is democratic by a largo ma
jority. Bnndhauor nnd O'Connor belong to
Dick's party , while Brandos and Holmes
carry the republican colors.
Over in the Second district there are flvo
democratic nspirants for this office ugainut
one republican. It D.-A. Wade , Ignatius
Dunn , Gus Kroeger , Alonzo J. Hart and A.
C. need constltuto the former crowd , while
Seymour G. Wllcox , n young attorney resid
ing in the Eighth ward , senms to be the only
representative of his party in the Justice
The hottest fight , however , is going
on in the Third district where Gus
tavo Anderson , George M. O'Brien , J. S.
Morrison , Charles J. Johnson , ex-
Councilman F. W. Mnnvillo , W. H.
Plnttner nnd Samuel Stotnin are whooping
things up in lively stylo. All tbeso candi
dates arc of the republican faith. Alexander
Meintosh and Edward Bortlett are also
spoken of. There seems to DO no democratic
ambition for this oltlfto in that district at nil.
Whether or not that party has 'iiven up hope
of succeeding there is the question. There
are eight justice ? to bp elected , nnd while the
republicans are sure of takme lour , they also
think the olmnces are good for nt least one if
not both of the Justices in the First district.

At 0:30 : a , m. , Tuesday , October 1 , three

tiary nt Lincoln , which may bring about
curious complications for the state to han
dle. They wore as follows : Fouco liainoi ,
number 20 , sentenced seventeen ye rs for
stage robbing , horse stealing nnd shooting
with Intontto kill ; Albert Spear , number n ,
sentenced for Ufa for singe robbing and mur
der , nnd Jack Fierce , number 73 , sentenced
for lifo for murder. These men were nil
transferred from the Wyoming prison on
Stout's convict labor contract. Spo.ir nnd
Fierce had tholr sentences commuted to ten
years which would expire January 1 , IS'.H ) ,
and Hnlnes' sentence- would not oxoiro until
Juno So , 1591. A strange chain of circum
stances attend tholr discharge , mid
TUB BRII Is the only paper able to
got bold of the facts. During Gov
ernor Nunco's administration a law wna
passed forbidding the holding or receiving of
convicts from other states nnd territories
after January 1 , 18S9. An amendment was
secured to the original bill by W , H. U.
Stout to take effect October 1 , 13S9 , idviug
htm the privilege of holding those ho had up
to Hint time on condition that lie secured their
discharge before that data Having failed to
secure tholr discharge ns agreed the three
convicts referred to were the only ones left
on his bauds , all the others being leased by
limitation , pardon , commutation , or other
wise. Tim Dyer , the prison inspector of
Wyoming , investigated the Nebraska , peni
tentiary , and before leaving promised the
warden that ho would secure tlio discharge
of the Wyoming convicts hold there if tlio
warden would recommend them for dis-
churgc. Warden Hopkins wrote u recom
mendation which , together with n copy of
the law showing that ho could not hold the
Wyoming convicts titter October I , nnd that
they could not bo removed to Wyo.-sing , for
warded the papers to Governor Warren , of
Wyoming. No action wns taken by the
Wyoming authorities up to Octo
ber 1 , nnd on that date the
prisoners wcro discharged. The recom
mendation was . not ncluiowlodtcd and
the matter was ignored by tlio ( rovernor , the
men were therefore discharged by the war
den. They wcro called from their cells on
the morning of October 1 and told to pack up
und loom They were given no papers of
discharge , nnd were advised to clour out of
tbo state us soon us tlioy could.
An authority on such matters was pre
sented with the facts , nnd said : "The ques
tion arises in my mind whether or not the
state could bn put to some trouble nnd OK-
pcnso by the Wyoming authorities for releas
ing those convicts , with uncxpircd sen
tences , without giving them the proper
notification and receiving permission to dis
charge them. And it seems to mo that the
state would still bo under liability to expense
should thcso convicts sue for fnlso im
prisonment , and for not receiving from
the prison authpritios tno usual
papers of discharge , which nro their only
means of proving themselves no longer con
victs. The only way In which the state ,
should such an emergency arise , could pro
tect itself would bo to look to Stout for the
amount of damage which might nriso in
"Another question which might nrlso , it
seems to me , is , under whoso Instructions
did Warden Hopkins discharge thrso men ,
and did he notify the territory of Wyommirl
If ho notified the territorial oQlciuls it looks
rather strange that no instructions In regard
to their disposal has born received. At all
events there may bo some interesting ques
tions to decide. " _

To inhale the germs of disease with their
daily breath is the fate of denizens of
malaria-scourged localities everywhere. The
endemic atmospheric poison may , however ,
bo reft of its venom nnct rendered innoxious
by a defensive use of Hosteller's Stomach
Bitters. This pre-eminently , safe and effec
tive remedy nnd safeguard not only eradi
cates the disease when developed , but en
ables the system to safely brave its as
saults. Every physlc.il function is con-
iirmcd in or restored to regularity , tlio cir
culation quickened if sluggish , and a bilious
habit , which of itself begets n proneness to
both intermittent nnd remittent types of
malarial disease , where extrinsic atmos
pheric causes exist , powerfully counteracted
by this inimitable- fortifying nnd defensive
nccnt , which has , moreover , none of the dis
agreeable characteristics of a drastic cathar
tic or an alkaloid. Fever and apuo , dumb
ague tiud ague cake , und the calcntura of tlio
