The unofficial returns had shown McDon

Fifth precinct of the Ninth ward ho lost
ten votes, the unofficial table having glvort
him 11 Instead of 10s, while In the i-'ift'.i
ward Lobeck gained two votes and In 1b
Ninth lost one, or made a net fia of one,
which, with the ten McDonald lost, re

Ballot Mar He Opened.
It Is understood that the conteatant
will have the ballots unwrapped and
counted In county court by agreement
before any certificate of election It Istued.
Should thlt plan be abandoned then It
would be up to the county clerk, as the
complied ttatutet (2!5, sec. 491 read;
When there Is a tie between two persons
for an office o be filled by the county alone,
or by any precinct therein, the clerk shall
notify them to appear at hie office at a
given time to determine the tame by lot
before the canvassing board, and the cer
tificate of election In to be given accord
ingly. If either party fall to appear or to
take part In the lot, the county clerk ahall
draw for htm.
The statutes also provide that such
course shall be taken In the event of a
contest which results In leaving the candi
dates still tied.
Judge Read of the district bench, a
chance visitor at the tax department
shortly after the vote was announced, ln
9 formed an Inquirer that either contestant
could allow the matter to be decided by
the county clerk drawing lota without
prejudice to hla case should he get the
wrong atraw and desire afterward to con
test, Such contett would begin In county
court and could go up on appeal.
The McDonald-Lobeck race became such
a close one yesterday that all other can
didates were dropped practically from no
tice and no accurate tab kept of the slight
and aa yet Immaterial changes In tho vote
on the legislative ticket. The official board
will not do Its totaling until the whole
county vote has been canvassed and en

WILL MAINTAIN THE FORCE
Hoard at Fire and Police ( omml, lon
ers Deride Sot to Redare Fire
The mort interesting feature of the ses
sion of the Fire and Police board last
evening waa the fact that they took no
action In regard to the reduction of the
Ore department of the city. Charles H.
Pickens of the Omaha Commercial club
made a talk to the board in executive ses
sion. In which he pleaded that there be
no reduction made. One of the raembeta of
the board stated that the department would
be kept to its present strength until the
funds on hand were completely exhausted.
Mr. Plckent stated that the Commercial
club would take some official action re
garding the matter next Tuesday at the
meeting of the executive committee.
The resignation of Nick Dargacxewskl aa
patrolman was accepted. Edward Way
bright, driver of hose company No. 7, was
reprimanded for being under the influence
ef liquor. He was excused from further
penalty on the grounds that his dram was
taken on an empty stomach for the pur
pose of giving him strength to battle with
a fire. Edward Heldeman of hook and lad
der company No. 1, up on the same charge,
waa also reprimanded and also fined hla
yearly thirty days off. Frank McClure.
who resigned from the fire department a
week ago to accept another position, was
reinstated at h:t request.
The first actual concert appearance of
Mr. Robert Cueeaden, violinist, since his
return from a prolonged study In Europe,
was sufficient to call forth a large and very
representative audience of the musicians
and music lovers to the Kountte Memorial
church last night. The church waa more
than two-thirds filled downstairs with the
foremost musicians of all branches, and
the critics were out In full force.
Mr. Cueeaden was most ably assisted by
Mr. Joseph Gahm at the piano, which Is
tho equivalent of saying that Mr. Cusca
den'a accompaniments were gems of, art,
and that there was nothing left undone
which would tend to the. support of the
Mr. Cuscaden has broadened much since
he played here last. Hla tone la more
voluminous, more highly colored and more
varlod in the production. His readings are
literal, perhaps too much to; In fact, one
looks for breathing spacea In a violin solo
as well aa In a song. He Is Inclined to
carry one phrase Into another, after the
manner cf so many violinists, and there la
manifest an Indisposition to "cut loose"
and be himself.
Mr. Cuscaden has not yet attained the
zenith of his ability, but he certainly has
attained to one triple point of excellence,
and that Is the ability to make beautiful
tones, to play with sincerity and to In
terpret with feeling. Mr. Cuscaden Is a
violinist who will be a joy to the Omaha
musical people. He Is certainly muslclanly,
artistic and honest in his work. He Is an
acquisition beyond doubt.
The program presented aome worthy of
ferings of true and tried value, while others
were perhapa what one might call experi
ment!. The first number, a sonata, by
Sjogren, was boresome In much of ltt over
development of a vary ordinary theme, tho
piano part being by far the more Interest
ing of the two parte, while the idea of
Introducing a quasl-barcarolle figure Into
an "allegretto acherzaodo" movement Is,
aa yet, questionable. The recital, aa a
whole, waa most enjoyable, and Mr. Cus
caden secured the spontaneoua approbation
of thoae who know and love the high stand
ards In the musical art.

P. E. Hoores as the one to respond. The
mayor was In his element and Eiade a
short address which was received with
laughter and applause. He paid tribute to
the able and earnest work of the volun

heroes the soldier, the locomotive, engi

their Uvea in their handa for the defenae
of their country and their fellow citizens.
"Today we have but one more engine to
defend the city from fire than we had when
the volunteer department went out of ex

volcano. Our fire department should be
enlsrged and the legislature should place a

. There Is no longer any doubt that the
trainmen of the I'nlon Pacific, In accord
ance with the concerted action planned by
the trainmen on all the roads througbojt
the country, will demand, an increase in
wages. The switchmen will be In on the
proposition, as was confirmed yesterday by
a leader of that body, who said that hla men
would meet within a few days to formu
late their plans. They are affiliated with
the trainmen here and will ask for th
scale which has been granted the trainmen
by seventeen trunk lines converging In
Chicago, which 1 an Increase tor fore
men of 4 cents and othera S centa an hour.
The general rate of increase to be de
manded,' it is understood, is 20 per cent.
It was given out at President Bun t
office yesterday morning that the trainmen
of the I'nlon Pacific had made no demand as
yet and bad not advised the company of
their intentions. The committee probably
will be In the city this morning, and as
President Burt and Mr. Buckiniiam are
expected back today, a conference between
the officials and the trainmen Is probable.
President Burt has maintained all along
that "our trainmen are not thinking cf any
Increase in wages: they are getting good
sages and tbey are an Intelligent set of
men and will not be unwise enough to ask
for more money."
Notwithstanding this, however, it has
been definitely learned that the I'nlon Pa

In order to get It bave silted themselves
with the g neral movement Involving the
co-operation of the trainmen all over th
country. Aa was originally stated In The
Bee, this movement was Inspired by the
conservative element of the trainmen and
sprung from a determination to bring wagea
up to a corresponding level with the vast
earnings of railroads and the Increasing
cost of living.
It la a fact that wagea have not been
lowered and trainmen admit that If the
general coat of living had not advanced
ao materially their lncomca would be satis,

they say they are not. Therefore In view
of tbla fact and the fact that from year to
year the earninrs of all railroads have been
going up by leapt and bounds, tbota of the
