MERCER FAILS TO REPORT
I BtaLment of His Campaign Eipemet
Tiled With Oomtj Clerk.
QUESTION AS TO PLACE OF RESIDENCE
Law Haye Ktatrmrn Must Be Filed
la County In "W hich andldate
ResMesi Therefore Mercer
County Clerk Pn'inl hns turked away In
toe office vault cabinet the financial state
ments of tb campaign filed with him by
those who wore candidates, or at least
thought they were, at tho recent election,
and la tome Instances these reports tell
tales of coatly disappointments.' The candi
date had to make such filing w'.ihln ten
days after the election and the treasurers
ot the. committee within twenty daya.
The time being expired. It was supposed
that all had compiled, but this morning In
running through the bunch there waa dis
covered an Important omission which raises
an Interesting question of law for those
who can bear to discuss the affairs ot the
Section 4 of article III of the corrupt
practices act states that "every person who
hall be a candidate for election to the
office of representative In the congress of
the United States or to any office which
tjnder tho laws of the constitution ot this
state la to be filled by popular election
except township, precinct or school dlstrlci,
ffloers or Tillage trustees, shall within ten,
daya after the election held to All suh
fflce, maka out a statement In writing tyiA
file the same with the clerk of tho county
la which he resides and make out and file
a duplicate thereof with the board of tffl
eera. If any, empowered by law. to Isjue
the certificate of election to such office.
Such statement shall set forth In detail
each and all sums of money and other
things of value contributed, disbursed, ex
pended or promised by him and (to' tho
best of his knowledge and belief) by. any
ether person or persona by his procurement
In his behalf."
Penalty Is Heavy Fine.
The section immediately following reads:
"Any person falling to comply with tho
third section or the fourth section of this
act shall bo liable to a fine not exceed
ing 1,000, to "be recovered with costs,
brought In the name of the state by tho
attorney general or by the county attor
ney of ths county of the candidate's resi
dence, the amount of said fine to be fixed
within such limit by the Jury, and to be
paid into the school fund of said county."
Notwithstanding these provisions of the
Statutes, there Is not In the filing box any
Statement from the late David Henry Mer
cer nor from any of the eminent counsel
ors who spoke and acted for him during
hla campaign for another term In con
gress. And since these learned jurists
must certainly have known ot this law,
there la at the court house the Inference
that David Henry must have been, as some
Insinuated at the time, really a resident
of some other section than Douglas county
during the late campaign and prior thereto.
Tie law question that arises Is as to
whether David Henry will have , to file at
ail, since Washington Is In a district, not
a county, and Minneapolis is In a state
whose laws may not be so exacting as
Neither has there been any filing here
by the republican congressional commit
tee, but that may be because the treasurer
la an evanescent being whose location
seems as hard to learn as that of the con
gressman himself. Mr. Blackburn would
be appealed to, but Is out of town. ' Mr.
Ourley wouldn't tell; Mr. doss couldn't. '
nitcbeoclc's Expense Aceonnt,
Mercer's opponent has filed and so has
the treasurer of the democratic committee.
Gilbert M. Hitchcock reports that he gave
Treasurer Burkley for the congressional
committee $200, that he paid $200 more for
"sundry" needs recommonded by Burkley
and $58 in hack hire and for ward vigilantes,
making a total of $458.
Burkley's report shows contributions ot
(100 from John A, Creighton, $100 from
W. S. Poppleton and $200 from Hitchcock, or
a total of $400, as against a total expend
iture of $395.90 for printing, stenographers'
hire and secretary's needs.
Secretary Cosgrove reports that bis larg
est expenditure was $42 for postage and
the next largest $15 for Hebrew circulars,
paid Philip Stein. The other disbursements
listed were In sums of $1 to $5 for furnish
ing "lists of voters."
Bernard McCaffery, socialist nominee, re
ports that his expenses amounted to "not
one red cent." ..
A. W, Jefferls, republican candidate for
county attorney, reports that be gave the
central committee $50 and spent enough
more tor printing cards and advertising to

WANTS PAY FOR DEAD CAtTLE
Quitman Company Snea J. L. Carey
to Recover Loss by Texas '
. . ' Fever. .
In the United States court ths case of
the Quitman Land and Cattle . company
against John L. Carey la on trial. This is
a suit for $4,580 damages arising from the
death of a number of cattle owned by the
plaintiffs. It is alleged that the plaintiffs,
residents of Missouri, purchased from the
defendant and C. J. Hysham of Omaha 304
bead of cattle from Texas, which the de
fendant and Hysham said were not contam
inated with Texaa fever, but which did
communicate the disease to a number ot
northern cattle which were placed on pas
ture with tbem, so that sixty-eight bead of
tho northern cattle and two head ot the
Texans died, with a damage to the others
amounting to the sum sped for. '
Ths answer ot the defendant Is to the
effect that he did not sell the cattle to the
plaintiff, he and Hysham having divided
their stock before It reached St.- Joseph,
where the sale waa made, and the stock
sold to the company was the property of
Hysham and not ot both; that if any dam
age resulted to the stock, of plaintiffs it
was due to their1 own carelessness, as they
should have known that Immune Texas cat
tle might communicate the disease to

A DraaaTlet's Advice,
Mr. C- L. Thompson, a druggist of Dan
ville, Ind-, gives the following wholesome
advice to bis customers: "If you should
ever need a remedy for croup or whooping
cough, get Chamberlain's Cough Remedy.
It absolutely has no equal for the preven
tion and cure of croup, and if taken la
time and according to directions. It la a
most excellent remedy for whooping cough
and all throat and lung troubles. I would
recommend that a bottle of this medicine
be kept in tbe borne at all times, especially
where there ore children in the family."
