Four stormy hours were consumed In

creaming at the top of his voice before
he had proceeded far. carried away by the
Intensity of his feeling.
The four wrong-doers had more noise

) Intense excitement was stirred up by the
fierce oratory of the evening and, repressed
so long. It broke in a storm when the re
sult of the vote was announced. The
meeting at once, without any formalities,
'dissolved into a general debating melee
'and It proceeded without a chairman from
that time on, the members adjourning down
',the stairway In groups as soon as they had
aid enough upstairs. There was no reg
ular adjournment and the confualon was
jcarried out into the street. Feeling was
trery strong and one of the leading mem

servative element, sail.

caustic report of the special committee ap

were profuse In the expression of great love

peculiar tenacity and an oratory that was

DEMOCRATS DECIDE ON DATES
Timet for Holding Primaries, and County
EFFORT TO HARMONIZE THEIR SQUABBLES
Committee Appointed to Fatch ip
Peace Between Members of the
County Commissioners Who
Are Now at Oats.
The county central democratic committee
decided, in meeting Saturday afternoon,
that at the primaries to be held June 13,
frum 12 o'clock noon to 7 O'clock, delegates
should be chosen to a county convention
to be June 21, at 1 p. m., this convention
to be made up ot three delegateo-at-large
from each ward In Omaha and South Omaha
nnd three from each country precinct, with
one additional for every seventy-live votes
or major fraction thereof cast for Judge
Oldham for attorney general In 1900, the
same convention to select delegates also
to the state convention at Grand Island
June 24, the congressional convention, the
Judicial convention, and to nominate a full
county ticket. Of the thirty-five commit
teemen present or voting by proxy only
three voted against this arrangement.
Other buslnee of the meeting was the
appointment by Chairman E. E. Howell ot
John Reagan, Patrick Ford and Hobart
Williams as a committee to wait on the
democratic members of the Board of County
Commlaeloners and ask them to coagulate.
This action followed an attack on Commis
sioner Richard O'Keeffe by Ford, whom
O'Keeffe had declined to boost Into the
office of county storekeeper, vice Thomas
O'Connor, whom Connolly doesn't like.
More Talk Than Business.
The business of the meeting occupied five
minutes In Its transaction. The talking oc
cupied an hour and a half, it being neces
sary for several democrats to tell what
they thought of some other democrats, and
for still other democrats to tell how cer
tain they feel that It Is going to be an
almighty hard Job for the party to get
anybody to run on Its legislative ticket
this fall or even to get delegates to go to
Grand Island to attend the convention. The
name of no candidate was heard, except
that of C. J. Smyth, who has a notion he
Would like to be governor. His came up
when Will McCoomb, first aide to County
Clerk Harry C. Miller, moved that Smyth
be allowed to name the delegates to the
state convention. Miller's former bosom
friend, but present declared enemy. Chair
man E. E. Howell, declined to even con
sider the motion and announced that It
could not be passed with him in the chair.
In calling the meeting to order Howell
thanked himself for the efficient work that
he and the rest of the committee had (lone
and said that be wouldn't be chairman
again even If somebody aeked him to, which
he admitted hadn't happened.
Squabble Over Katnre of Call.
The secretary read the call and J. P.
Connolly moved that the primaries be June
19, which will be Thursday, and the county
convention June 21, which will be Saturday.
L. W. Herdman moved to amend by Insert
ing the stipulation as to the business to
be done by the county convention, and Con
nolly accepted the amendment. L. J. Ptattt,
secretary to the committee, opposed part
of the motion, saying that it waa unfair
to the candidates nominated, as It would
'subject them to troubles for six months
the length ot the campaign." He said It
would be an unheard-of 'arrangement here
and seemed to consider that the prospective
ticket couldn't stand public analysis for so
long a time. Lee Herdman responded that
they are doing that way in Ohio. 3. 3.
O'Connor said It would be necessary, under
this arrangement, to put clean men In the
field, and while it would be difficult, he
thought it might be done.
It was at this Juncture that McCoomb
asked: "Have we a state candidate? and
upon being Informed that Smyth consid
ered himself such, moved to allow blm to
name the delegates to the atate convention.
but let the rest of the Herdman motion
Howell flared Instantly and said: "I
have no fear of that motion carrying here,
but I warn you that it cannot with me in
the chair. I'll resign first." The matter
was dropped, the chair declining even to
entertain the motion.
Ed Callely said he fsvored the Herdman
plan, as the fewer the primaries the bet
ter. "Every time you fellows In the city
have a primary and a squabble It costs
like thunder to fix It up," be explained,
Men Hard to Find.
J. J. O'Connor met the Piatti objection
to ths early nominating by saying that it
Is going to bs harder to get men to run
than It Is for them to get the nominations
in the convention, whenever it's held.
Somebody remarked that the other speak
ers were making no mention of the two
county commissioners to be elected.
Connolly, who was the only member of
the present board at ths meeting, aross to
say that the democrats could elect a mem
ber from the north district if they nom
inated a man he had in mind, as "all h 1
cannot beat htm," and that they can elect
the other one from the country, no matter
who Is put up.
The redoubtable Mr. Ford then inter
Jected his remarks about O'Keeffe, alleg
ing that the Utter had always been known
ss a crank, but an honest one, ana mat
he (the speaker) still believed blm honest
but that his first official act had been to
tie up with the republicans. He made also
the serious charge that O'Keeffe Insists on
knowing sll about everything before it goes
through the board and that be was tired of
him and believed Plattt, who used to cs:l
him "the grand old man," Is also tired of

was allowed to proceed and finally made a
motion that the chair appoint a committee
of three to wait on the commissioners to
"see what's the matter and what can be
done." Plattl seconded it and it carried
"Mr. O'Keeffe Is up against it." remarked
the chairman with much dignity and Bow
sry rhetoric. .
"No, the chair is up agalnat It," sug
gested somebody elss.
"On ths contrary, ths chair takes pleas
ure In naming this committee. Reagan,

Mr. Connolly posed for the grandstand
and declared that it the committee met

crats of the county and that whatever two

THEIR Ql'EEEH COIRT9HIP.
Moat of It After Marriage and While
Divorce Salt Was Pending.
One of the prettiest romances in real life
with its principal scene laid in Minne
apolis has been completed st Evanston, 111.,
and the narrator can now say, "and they
lived happily ever after."
Harold W. Bennett, one of tbe chief act
ors in the romance, relates the Minneapolis
Tribune, was a Minneapolis boy, but he left
his native state a few years ago and took a
position in Chicago. While there he met
rene M. Graves, a pretty young woman.
well connected. The young people were
friendly and became fond of each other, but
there was no idea of an engagement up to
the time when Miss Graves went to St.
Paul to visit friends, early in 1899.
While the young woman was there Ben
nett took a run up home and then went
over to SU Paul to pay a visit to the young
woman. Tney met, and half In Jest, half In
earnest, a marriage was proposed and thn
young people, without the knowledge of
anyone, were married In St. Paul February
1899. After the ceremony they sep
arated with an agreement that no one
should know of it until some future time,
and there the romance ended for a brief
time. Bennett went back to .Chicago and
Miss Graves did also shortly afterward.
But while they kept silence, they cor
responded whenever they were separated
by distance, and all was well until a third
aotor appeared in the shape of the young
man the parents of the young woman
wanted for ber husband. Then in the com
plications that followed the Graves family
became aware of the condition of things
and there was trouble.
Pressure was brought to bear upon Ben
nett, and George L. Matchan and a young
attorney named Lewis were selected to
bring divorce proceedings, one attorney ap
pearing for each. Bennett brought the
action in Hennepin county through Lewis
and Matchan. appeared for the wife. The
cause of the action was desertion and
Judge Harrison tried the case.
Now the peculiar part of it all was that
all the time that this was going on tbe
most loving letters were passing between
the young couple. ' Not silly epistles, but
lovely missives, filled with endearments
that were gems of womanly and manly af
fection. Both were doing what they could
to please the old folks, but their hearts
cried out against their hard fate.
But for a Judge with a keen eye to facta
the divorce might have followed and the
young woman have been mated to the
wrong man. But things shaped themselves
right after all. The two hearts that beat
as one cried out in letters, and one of them
found Its way into court, so that in Judge
Harrison s findings be refused the divorce
on tb ground that it appeared from his
reading of human nature that tbe proceed
ings were friendly and that tbe young peo
ple were in the litigation to please the old
folks. So the divorce was denied.
Both the young couple were happy. They
wrote more letters. They were more In
love than ever, and finally the parents re
lented and they were allowed to see each
other. The result is that they are to be
husband and wife after all, but in order to
keep tbe whole affair from becoming publc
they were married Just as If nothing bad
happened. The ceremony took place at
Evanston, a suburb of Chicago.

Then tbe other night the building burned
and tho fire company has no borne. Three
appraisers were named, who went over the
remnants of the building and reported as
being in favor of a settlement for $824.
The council haa refused to accept any set
tlement ot this kind snd will either insist
upon the payment of the full amount ot
the Insurance or else the rebuilding of the
fire ball. It Is understood that the Insur
ance company has declined positively to
replace the building In the shape it was
prior to the fire. The city will not accept
the tender ot $824 In full payment ot the
claim and It looks now ss If the relations
between the company and the city would
be strained, to say the least.
There Is constant inquiry from residents
In the western portion of the city regard
ing the rebuilding of this hall, as now the
entire ( port Ion west of the trscks is left
Mayor Koutsky Is anxious to have some
steps taken to reconstruct the present
building or else, If this cannot be arranged,
he wants the insurance money paid" and
then the city will go ahead and erect a
brick fire ball. While there Is no money
In tbe fire fund at the present time, it Is
thought that an effort will be made to se
cure more money for both the fire and
police departments this year. In case the
levy will not prove sufficient for new build
ings a bond proposition may be suggested.
With bonds amounting to $26,000 at a low
rate of interest the city could construct a
fire hall In each ward in the city and equip
the same and thus give the protection to
property that Is now demanded.

A MAGA. l
RICKLY ASH BITTER
A FEW FACTS.
If pstent medicines ars not almost given away In the next few weeks, then we
are not prognostlcators. This Is how It hsppened: Tbs Omaha combine of re
tall druggists have so utterly failed in their effort to prevent us from buying goods
ever since last September, that they have called the chairman of the executive
committee of the National Association ot Retail Druggists out here from Phila
delphia to TRT and help them. He ca lied on us laat week and wanted to know It
we would consider ths proposition ot Joining ths association and raising the prices,
holding out the bait to us that ws could still PRETEND to be CUT PRICE
DRUGGISTS, snd thst tbs PEOPLE would never know ths difference. We po
litely told Mr. Holllday this chairman that there were enough PRETENDERS In
the drug business in Omabs and that tbe hold-up business was not our style that
we would not Join the association, but was perfectly satisfied to run our own busi
ness, and every other merchant hsd ths same privilege, so far ss ws were con
cerned. He looked wlss and ssid he was very sorry, but thst hs was out bers for
business and thought hs bad a schems w hereby, with the aid of the other Omaha
druggists, hs thought they could FIX IT so thst It would be Impossible for us to
buy sny mors goods, and then we woul d either bars to come in or close up shop.
Ws told him all right, go ahead; we certainly would not have a thing to do with
their trust gang and would shut up shop. It that was ths only alternative. Now,
. ws are not out begging sympathy from the public; that is not our style, either
but if the people of this community wis h to help this combine in their fight
sgalnst us, all we have to say la,-patron lie them. Their new spheme is to cut
tbs prlcss so low that ws can't follow, b ut we never have taken a' back eeat yet, ao
crack ahead, Mr. Omaha Drug Trust, e halrman and all, and as wll be here on
Jtn and Chicago to see ths finish! We busted your hot sir outfit ones and csn do
it again. Now watch and see If we are a prognoetlcstor.
