primary to be held Friday three of the men
who bad been selected by the Mercer forces I
for delegates to the county convention and I
one who hsd been selected for delegate to 1
the congressional convention declined to j

tha congressional delrga'lon and W. A.

the county delegation. Their resignations
were accepted, and upon motion of Joseph
Koutsky their names were omitted from the

and the resignation of Charles F. Johnson,
a delegate from the Fifth ward, was also '
received. In both canes It was decided not
to place the names on the tickets. ;
The question of the arrangement of the J
tickets on the ballot was then considered.
John l Fierce moved that the Mercer dele-
Rations be placed In the left-hand column ;
on all ballots In each ward and precinct in
tha county. Harry Zlmman moved an
amendment to the effect that the preferred
position bw given to delegations, Mercer or
anti-Mercer, according to the time of their
filing. The champions of Mr. Mercer pres
ent at the committee meeting objected to
this, as Mercer's delegations had all been
Died with T. W. Blackburn Monday and !
were not filed with the county committee
until Just before noon Tuesday. Finally
Joseph Koutsky moved that In every case
the anti-Mercer delegation be placed In the
left-band column and this amendment pre
vailed by a vote of two to one.
It was then decided that all names appear
on the ticket In alphabetical order and that
a mark In the circle to the right of the
delegation would vote for all of the names
on that delegation. The Weekly Independ
nt was awarded the printing of the ballots
of South Omaha and the Omaha Printing
company those for the city and county out
side of South Omaha.
Tha secretary was ordered to prepare the
ballots In the order named and the printing
committee adjourned until 4 o'clock In the !
afternoon to approve the copy before It Is
sent to the printer.
Charles W. Fear, a printer employed by
the Dally News and a man wldey and fa
vorably known In union labor circles, is the
latest candidate to enter the lists in the
Eighth ward. Mr. Fear has been out of the
city on a short vacation and when be re
turned announced bis candidacy for repre
sentative la the lejlslfttyr". The "nnminrr
raeot has been given favorable reception,
as th candidate has a host of warm friends
la hla home ward. Th fortunes of his can
didacy have been cast with the anti-Mercer
delegation, as has that of Van B. Lady, the
ward's other candidate for the house. Mr.
Lady Is with the Bankers Reserve Life com
pany, and aside from a high standing In
business circles he enjoys wide popularity
with th republican voters of his ward.
Another Eighth ward candidate whose for
tune rest with the anti-Mercer delegation
Is Georg F, Munro, who aspires to the
state senate. Mr. Munro is a well known
grocer and ha taken an active part In the
battles of th republican party for years.
H had tb support of his ward for the nom
ination for county commissioner last year,
whon ther was soma doubt as to which
district was to tlect a member, and he will
doubtless bav It thla year for the senate.
Candidal for the republican nomination
for county attorney ar plenty, and the
fact that all but one of them have alighned
themselves with the anti-Mercer forces Is
anothsr Indication that the nonresident con
gressman la not very generally credited
with th strength necessary to win out at
the primaries. A. W. Jefferls of the Eighth
ward Is the only aspirant to the county at
torney' office who has gone In with the
Mercer outfit, and he long ago forfeited any
claim that he ever may have had on the reg
ular republicans of the county. Aside from
Jefferls, th candldatea are Jacob L. Kaley
of th Fourth ward, C. W. DeLamatre of the
Fifth and B. F. Thomas of the Seventh,
all of whom are against the renomlnatlon
of the nonresident candidate for congress
and therefor opposed to th Mercer dele
gation for tha county convention.
Every ward yln the city, with the excep
tion of the First, has from one to tour can
dldatea for tha house of representatives.
In th Second ward S. A. Corneer and
Fred Behm appear: ip th Fourth Charles
P. Tuttle, tha well known lawyer. Is a
candidate; In th Fifth George Redman
come up with th endorsement of the ward
club;, In tb Sixth W. R. Homan. Charles
H. Lear and Herman Tlmme ar In the

Eighth Charlea W. Fear and Van B. Lady

For th senate Oeorge A. Mead of the
Third, L. N. Gonden and J. A. Sunderland
of th Seventh, George F. Munro of the
Eighth and M. A. Hall of the Ninth are in
th running. All of these are understood
to be anti-Mercer candidates, and then
there is Charlea L. Saunders, a Mercerlte,
la th Fifth ward.
B. D. Evans of th Sixth and George B.

ar candidate for county commissioner In

the renomlnatlon of Congressman Mercer,
and the placing of two delegate tickets for
each the congressional, county and Judicial
conventions In every ward but the Ninth,
the county committee comee In for a nice
windfall. There are 20 candidates for
county delegates, 155 for congressional
delegates and f4 for Judicial delegates In
Omaha and South Omaha, and a tiling fee
of 12.00 had to be paid to the county com
mittee for each one of these. Th total of
415 delegates filings therefore put Into the
coffers of the committee the neat sum of
130. The expense of the prlmarlea, nine
In Omaha and one In South Omaha, will
hardly exceed 1250.
Eighty-seven members strong, the North
Side Second Wsrd Republican club sprang
Into being last night in Mlnlcus hall, at
Twentieth and Pierce streets, and on the
tanner which It flung to the political
breeie were emblazoned the anti-Mercer
delegations from that ward.
Auspicious in Its Inclplency from the fact
of its large charter enrollment, the club
further proved Its passage under a lucky
star by holding ss an Initial meeting one of
the moat rousing political gatherings ever
known In the Second ward. Organization
waa the first order of business and John C.
Lynch was elected president by acclama
tion. In response Mr. Lynch said:
"This Is an honor totally unexpected by
me, but I assure you that fo be elected to
the presidency of a club destined to wield
such a strong Influence In the republican
politics of this ward Is the proudest achieve
ment of my life. I do not deserve this of
fice when our membership list contains
names of so many men more worthy than
I, yet slnte it is your wish I accept It."
William Westorgard waa made secretary
of the club and Michael Mlnlcus treasurer.
Resolutions were passed endorsing the antl
Mcrcer congressional delegation from the
Second ward, man by man. President
Lynch then called upon E. J. Cornish, can
didate for congress. Mr. Cornish spoke for
half an hour, being frequently Interrupted
by cheers. He recalled the events of his
eighteen years in political life here, which
Justified his asking for the coming nomina
tion. He expounded the principles of the
republican party In which he believed.
A large crowd was present when Chair
man Turner called to order the meeting of
the West 81de Republican club at Fortieth
and Leavenworth streets last night. Party
members from the Seventh and Ninth wards
vtere there In Joint session. Congressman
Mercer had been Invited to attend and
speak, but found It Impossible to appear In
the ward from which he only has a dele
gation on county and congressional tickets.
Congressional candidate John P. Breen,
however, was present and made a stirring
speech on national topics, not Italicising
his own candidacy till near the close. Other
speakers were Candidates Robertson and
Davlee for the state legislature, John F.
Stout and Ed Morlarty.
At the meeting of the Fifth Ward club
last night addresses were mad by C. W.
DeLamater, candidate for county attorney;
L. D. Holmes, candidate for district Judge,
and J. B. Bruner, candidate for assessor.
There waa no club business transacted.
Dr. J. C. Mocre of the Fifth ward Is an
other man whoso name has been used with
out authority by the Mercer managers. The
doctor's name has been put on the Mercer
delegate ticket In the Fifth without hla con
sent To a Be reporter yesterday Mr. Moore
said: "I am entirely out of politics and I
do not want my nam to appear on any
ticket The Mercer people asked me to go
on their ticket in this ward and I told them
plainly that I would not consent to It The
first I knew of the use of my name was
when I saw It published In the newspapers.
I am not a candidate and if I am elected as
a delegate to the congressional convention
I will refuse to serve."

night In its hall at Twentieth and Cuming

that candidate, the following resolution
was Introduced by J. O. Pegg and carried;
We, the members of the Douglas County
Republican Central league, realise that our
constitution provides that we shall not en
dorse any candidate, but does not prevent
us from condemning anyone who has of

do hereby and herein declare that David

NONUNION MEN LEAVE SHOPS
Guards Ont Trying to Ronnd Up a Large
INJUNCTION WORKS IN TWO WAYS
Danger of Interference from Strikers
Ilclnsr Removed Dissatisfied Work
ers Take Occasion to De
sert the Company.
The Union Pacific's Injunction which
Judge McPherson of Iowa Issued at the be
hest of Attorney John N. Baldwin against
the strikers Is working with a reflex ac
tion. While it has had some effect In con
firming the conservative policy promulgated
by the leaders of the strike, It hss Imposed
a hardship upon the company In causing a
serious defection among the nonunion
forces In the Omaha shops. A large number
of these men left the shops yesterday morn
ing, some reports say forty, as an Indirect
result of this Injunction. This will con
tinue the necessity of hiring more men to
keep up the quota in the shops.
One of the men who left the shops said:
.Since we heard of the Injunction being Is
sued we have felt a greater security In
leaving the works. - We naturally sup
posed that If there was any dacger of vio
lence at the hands of the strikers, this
restraining order would have a tendency to
suppress that and enable us to get out of
the shops and the city, if we desired, with
out being molested. As a matter of fact
there are a great many men in th shops
who sympathize with the strikers and would
have gladly left long before had they not
been led to believe that In doing so they
were taking a hazardous step."
The desertions have caused considerable
excitement at the shops. The men left,
supposedly to spend a few hours over In
the city and return, but they failed to re
turn and guards were detailed to searcn
Lesson of the Tragedy.
Strike leaders have been taught a valu
able lesson by the tragedy of Sunday morn
ing. While the responsibility for the mur
der of Earl Caldwell haa not been laid at
the door of any striker, tho fact that It
was committed on the picket lines and that
several strikers were witnesses to it, one
and perhaps another being Incidentally In
volved In the general fight out of which
th tragedy arose, has had a temporizing
Influence. The picket forces have been
thoroughly reorganized and from now on
this work will . be conducted with better
system and more precaution than before.
It will bo the purpose to place men of tried
Judgment and character In charge of the
pickets and dispense with minors for this
As has been stated on previous occa
sions Mike Spellman, one of the men
whom Mordlca W. Ball charges as his as
sailants, on the fatal night, was lieutenant
of a squad of pickets and was specifically
charged with responslt illty for the conduct
of the men under him. The fact that Spell
man neglected his duty In this direction
and became a party to the assault of which
he Is accused, has brought upon him loud
and severe censure from the strikers and
confirmed the leaders In their determina
tion to select sober and reliable men for
these positions hereafter.
It will be the purpose of the strikers to
maintain their picket lines Just as they did
before the Injunction was served on them
and to prosecute this work with more vigi
lance and precaution than ever. They stilt
Insist on being within tbelr rights in pur
suing this course.
"The men ought to be. careful to obey
very order of. tb police and do. nothing
to court or Incur trouble," said. Vice Pres
ident Conlon of the machinists. "We are
not looking for trouble. We want to con
form with th law in all respects and will
discountenance its violation by any of our
Aid for th Strikers.
Conlon and William Rlcbllieu went to
Missouri Valley Tuesday night, where they
held a meeting and secured a generous do
nation from a larg and enthusiastic crowd
of worklngmen. Th big mass meeting In
Washington hall Monday night Is consuming
time and interest here. The prime object of
the meeting Is to expose tb Issues between
the Union Pacific and its men In their true-
light. The principle of injunctions will be
discussed and prominent citizens will be In
vited to participate In this debate. Vice
Presidents Conlon, Mulberry and WUson of
the International Association of Machinists
John McNeil, president of the International
Brotherhood of Boiler Makers, and R. B

will speak. Harry McVea, president of Cen

confusion in some quarters with the Jack

that every effort should be made to dispel
this delusion. Jack McKenna, the ma

For sewn years I did not know what it was to be well. At
that lime I slipped and fell, straining myself inwardly. I paid
little attention to it at first, but soon I found that I had habitual
backache and a peculiar sick feeling at my stomach. The right side
of my bowels ached and if I was on my feet a couple of hours at
a time I would pive out completely. I began coughing and thought
I waa getting consumption but the doctor told me this was on ac
count of my weak condition, that I was in reality troubled with
falling of the womb. My menstruation was very irregular. Some
times it would stop for two or three months and again I flowed so
much there was danger I would flow to death. I now became con
vinced that the doctors could not help me and as I saw an adver
tisement of your Wine of Cardul I decided to try it. It brought
me quick relief, the nausea stopped, my apjtetite improved,
gradually my pains stopped and I felt how my entire system
was being renewed. I have now been a well and happy woman
for over a year, thanks to Wine of Cardui.
IT is little wonder Miss St. Elmore
was discouraged in the sarch for
health. There is hardly a physi
cian who would hesitate to call snch
a case chronic and incurable. But
Wine of Cardui has cured thousands
of such cases. To cure sickness of
seven years' standing tbe treatment
must be thorough. Wine of Cardui,
to regulate the menstrual flow, be
gins at the fundamental principle
that of allowing the poisonous waste
to le discharged naturally and health'
fully. This removes all irritation
and inflammation. Wine of Cardui
brings relief as a mild aid to Nature
in removing the causes of sickness.
The proper flow of tbe menses re
lieves the blood of impurities and
allows pure blood to build up and

POLITICS IS PORTO RICO
Election of Officers for Island to Be Held on.

SAN JUAN. Porto Rico, Sept. 10. (Corre-
spondent ot the Associated Press.) On No
vember 4 will be held an election covering
the entire Island, at which time a resident
commissioner to th United States, five
delegates from each legislative district, a
mayor for each municipal district, one
municipal judge, three school trustees and
members of the council will be chosen. In
Ban Juan two municipal Judges and two
substitutes will be voted for.
While the campaign has not fully opened,
yet tbe first few meetings have been thea
trical. The Porto RIcan Is a good citizen,
he generally minds his own business and be
lieves in tha adage, "Live and let live,"
until it comes to politics. Then ther are
no half way measures. If you are on the
opposite side, whatever that may be, your
opponent considers that you are not en
titled to live and that you bav lost claim
to respectability because you do not believe
as be does. This being the case with on
faction and tho other it will be readily seen
that when Greek meets Greek there is bound
to b results of tbe Donnybrook species
more or less.
Two Leading; Parties,
Thus far few meetings have been held
which have not ended with a few broken
heads and the grave charge has been made
that the police were not the least active
in either precipitating or lending passive
encouragement to one or the Other faction.
Today in Porto Rico there are strictly
speaking, two parties. The republican
party, now In power, and tha American fed
eration. Another party has sprung up In
the laat few weeks which styles itself union
ist. Its platform Is Utopian to such an ex
tent that it la not being considered serious
by tbe other two.
Two years ago the federals cast no vote
at all, claiming that It would be useless to
go to the poles, aa the republicans would
count them out. Tbe federals are going
to the polls this year and are going to see
that their votes are counted as cast. In
this determination they have the endorse
ment of the governor, who hss declared
that a fair election must be held, whatever

Most of the trouble occurs in interior

TARRYTOWN. N. Y., Sept. 17. The resi
dence of John D. Rockefeller, at Pocantlco
Hills, Westchester county, waa destroyed
by fire tonight. The fire Is supposed to
have started from crossed electric wires.
Tbe house stood on the top of a hill about
00 feet above tbe level of the Hudson
river, overlooking the country for miles tn
every direction. None of the family was at
home and tbe blaze was discovered by
some of the servants about the place. The
fire departments of North Tarrytown and
Tarrytown responded to telephone calls,
but lack of water prevented the building
from being saved. The firemen and ser
vants succeeded in . getting out a great
portion of the valuable furniture. The es
timated loss Is 40,000. Tbe burned build
ing was a substantial structure, though
built many years ago. It was occupied by
the Rockefellers pending the erection ot
the manor house whlcn Mr. Rockefeller
hss been planning to build nearby.
