North Dakota's contributions to the com
posite picture which la to show the con-
' < Ienst.'d essence of the beauty of the women
' of the transmlsslsslppl region haa been re
ceived by Maniger Llndscy. The two women
chosen by Vice President Lounsberry of
Fargo are Mrr. Fred U. Fancher of Bismarck
and Mrs. K. M , Darrow of Fargo. Their
I'hiJtographs meet the requirements of the
competition and have been forwarded by
Manager Llndsey to New York , where Phol
togrnpher Ilockrood. the Inventor of the
composite photograph , will Include them In
the picture which Is to form the model for
the woman's head which will appear on one
eldo of the expedition medal ,
In addition to these two pictures , VIre
ricsldcnt Lounsberry sent to Manager Llntl-
scy tlio photographs of the woman not chosen
who luul consented to having their pictures
cpprar In Munoey's Magazine as tyjica ot
'western beauty. The Department ot Pub
licity and Promotion has already received a
largo number ot pictures which had been
thrown out by the several vice presidents
and those will all bo turned over to the pub
lishers cf Mnnsey'n Magazine for publication.
The conditions surrounding this contest weru
so severe , and the time ot the contest was io
c''ort , that comparatively few eligible women
could comply with them. The pictures were
icqulrod to show a full profile ot head and
hhculdcrs , showing the left Hide of thu face ,
and evening dress was absolutely necessary.
As a photograph complying with these speci
fications Is a decided rarity , and as expert
photographers do not exist on every corner
In moat western towns. It was a very dltncult
matter to secure photographs coming within
thn requirements. A largo number 'were '
sent to the vice presidents , however , with
the Idea , perhaps , ttnt they "ralsht do. " and
BS a result thn vice presidents have In tholr
pcasfjalnn a largo number of photographs
of very handsome wcmen. Acting urtler the
request of the Publicity department the vice
presidents have endeavored to secure the con
sent ot the subjects ot these pictures to have
them appear In Munsoy's ami the department

i SOU WOMAliA NEWS.
It waa reported on the streets yesterday
afternoon that certain republicans had de
cided to push Councilman John Schultz to
the front KS n candidate for may-c-r as a dai-k
horse. In thla event It la surmised that B.
13. Wllcox would again become a candidate
for city treasurer. While a great many re
publicans appsar to think that the cicmlna-
tlo'.n uliould go either to Uarrett or Lane ,
others are of the opinion that an ljutalder
would bo able to poll more votfa than either
of candidates MOW talked of. Of courao
.this l \ all street talk , and nothlns may come
ot It. The frlerfds of Schultz and Wilcox1
assort that they mean business and they nay
that unless Ilarrett or Lane uucceed In get
ting the full strength of U5e' convention tha
republicans mentioned will be placed In
Mr. Schultz declined Home time ago to be
come a candlJato for re-olectlon to the coun
cil , as his private business occupies a great
deal of his time nnd he expects to be absent
from the city a greater part ot the coming
year. It Is stated , however , that In case
Schultz receives the nomination for mayor
ho will remain In the city. Bert Wllcox ! a
one of the beat known republicans In the
city and was a candidate for city treasurer
two yea ago , but was defeated by Frank
Broadwcll. So far Mr. Uroadwcll li the only
democrat who has announced himself In the
race for treasurer , though several who arq
a little bit backward would like to haolle
the city's cash.
Up to date the following rcpubllcns havq
cnnuonced themselves. For member ot the
city council , John Frledt , chief of the
flro department at Hammond's and a well
known Gorman ; W. B. Vansant of the First
ward , who Is a well known republican
leader ; Auguat Miller of the Fourth wardj
William McCralth of the Third ward tid ;
Councilman William A. Bemaett , aaothci'
leader In the republican lanks. For police'
Judge , W. S. llabcock , the barber , Is aa well
known as anyone on the ticket ar.l as hu
has many friends , ho hopes to secure thu
iomkiatlcin. : J. P. Hayes , another old resi
dent of the city , Is looking for the chance
to deal out police court sentences , whllo
John Mclutyre Is the latest candidate to
announce himself for this office on the re
publican ticket. D. S. Curtis is out In a
card stating that he seeks the Independent
nomination for police Judge , whllo Major1
Davis Is being talked of by some.
City Clerk Caipenter Is the only repub
lican candidate for clerk so far and M. L.

city will bo open In every precinct In thu
city for the revision of last fall's registra
tion. Every voter la the city who was not
registered last fall or who has changed hi *
pltico of residence since that time will have
to register. On account of the large num
ber of persona wh.i have taken up their
residence In this city slnco the last elec
tion It la expected that there will be quite
an Increase In the registration over last
year. Preparations are- also being made to
rare for first votcra and committees' hive
been appointed by the different parties to
look after thla class. The large amount of
building which' has hern going on here dur
ing the last few months has brought quite
a number ot people to this city who \\lll
bo eutltlcxl to a vote In the spring , and as
many are foreigners It will bo necossiry for
them to secure their first papers. It la for
the purpose of taking care ot these people

Would Smoke u Tenant Out.
Peculiar requests are made of city offi
cials , but something out of the ordinary oc
curred when City Engineer Beal waa re
quested to condemn a chimney In a house
In the Second ward In order to compel the
tenants to leave. A woman owns the prop
erty In Iquratlon and she called at the en-
'jrlneer'R office and unfolded a long tale of
woe. She stated that aho desired to rid
horeolt of some tenants , but did not know
how to go nbout It. Shn thought that If
the engineer would condemn the chimney
she could closn up that aperture' and smoke-
out the undralrablo tenants. The engineer
Informed the womin that his department
was not conducted for such purposed and
referred her to the police court.

Third district to succeed Judge Maxwell ,

The control of the admlsxlon ot visitors to
.ho main court of the exposition has passed
'rom the hands of Concessionaire Swobe ,
who managed the Ice carnival , Into 'the '
charge of the Department of Ways and Means
and Alanagcr Llndsey has Issued an order
excluding vehicles from the grounds en
tirely , except such as are required to haul
material for the use of contractors. The
grounds are In such a torn up condition
with the numerous excavations for sewert\
underground conduit ? , tree planting and road
making , that It Is almost impossible for a
vehicle to find a passageway and their ad
mission Is a great annoyance and cause of
delay on the part of workmen.
A change has also been made. In the price
of admission to the main court. The fee Is
now 10 csnta for adults and children under
12 years will bo admitted froeo If accom
panied by adults. Children not accompanied
will not be admitted at all. The latter rule
hao been made by Manager Llndsey because
there Id moro or less danger attendant upon
a visitor to the grounds and children un
accompanied rush about In the most reck
less manner and are entirely beyond control.
No attempt has yet been made to exclude
visitors from the bluff tract or the north
tract , but as work progresses on both ot
tlieso tracts the necessity for such action la
becoming more apparent. The large crowds
of vl<ors to the grounds these beautiful
days are becoming a serious annoyance to
the workmen and their exclusion has been
under consideration for some time.

The exposition stock subscription list has
been liicresaed by the addition ot $25,000
which was subscribed by the Union Pacific
Railway company. This subscription has
been announced by President Hurt and
brings the total amount subscribed by the
railroads entering Omaha to $115,000 , the

Special Agent C. E. Llewellyn of the De
partment of Publicity and Promotion , has
just returned from Ues Molnes , where ho
went at the direction of Manager Rosowatcr
to survey the ground and report on the
probability of an appropriation for state par
ticipation In the exposition. Mr. Llewellyn
states that ho Is convinced that the Iowa
legislature will appropriate at least $23,000
In addition to the $10,000 appropriated by
the procRdlng legislature.
"There Is no particular opposition to an
appropriation for the Iowa Exposition com
mission , " said Mr. Llewellyn , "but nearly
all of the people admit tlia't ' something
should bo done. The state Indebtedness ls >
about $000,000. while the constitutional limit
Is $250,000. All appropriations for state In
stitutions are being reduced to the lowcat
limit and the sentiment 1st In favor of treatIng -
Ing the exposition appropriation In the same
way. The slate commission has asked for
$47,100 and the commission says If It cannot
got that much It doesn't want any. This
rather , arbitrary position , has caused some
llttlo friction--- - the -matter will
probably bo adjusted without trouble.
I was satisfied when I loft Des
Molnes that the house committee would
recommend an appropriation of $30,000 and I
see that was done yesterday. I am Just as
well satisfied that the senate committee will
reduce this amount to $25,000 , and I believe
that Is what will ho appropriated. I talked
with n number of members of the legislature
and told them that If anything was to bo dona
It should bo done at once , as the/ space whlcli
has been held la reserve for Iowa Is In great
demand , and they must not expect the ex
posltlcn to keep It for them and then bo loft
holding the sack. The state commission has
been pounding the legislature to take some
actlca In the matter and I believe there will
bo no further delay. "
The delay on the part of Iowa has caused
the Department of Exhibits great uneasiness
for some time. AV'hcn the Iowa commission
ers were In Omaha soon after their appoint
ment they picked out one of the choicest
building sites on the bluff tract and the
choicest locations .In the main buildings , re
questing that these bo reserved for Iowa.
Merely as a matter of accommodation this
was done and no further steps have been
taken by the Iowa commission to clinch the
reservation. Other states have been clamorIng -
Ing for the slto selected for Iowa's build-
Ing' and have Insisted that they were ready
to take the site and pay for It. Missouri
and Arkansas each demanded that they be
given thla slto because Iowa had given no
sign that It would erect n tmlldlng or make
an exhibit and they were very wroth when
they iwero refused. Relying upon the par
tial promise of the Iowa commissioners the
spaces In the buildings and on the grounds
have been held , but a formal notice was re
cently sent to the Iowa commissioners that
this sort of thing could not bo rontlnued In
definitely and decisive action must bo taken
at once or the spaces would be assigned to
Manager Z. T. Llndsey of the Ways and
Means Department and Manager E. HOJC-
watcr of the Department of Publicity and
Promotion , have started for Now York and
other eastern points on exposition business.
They will stop In Chicago to call upon a
number of ofllcom of corporate InterestB
which are Interested In Omaha , but whlcn
have not yet manifested the extent of their
interest by subscriptions to exposition stock.
The same errand will occupy Idem In New-
York , ntid from there they will go to Phila
delphia to make final arrangements for ttio
exposition medals and endeavor to expedite
their l&sutj as much as possible , Washington
will probably bo visited before their return.
