B. n. Kimball Makes th Beat Soar,
llttUi Fire tp Against III
Th Country club golfers had an easy
match with th Field club yesterday after
noon on the latter' llnki thejr taking the
Field club Into camp to the tun of 8 to
on the number of matched pair won.
Soorer Bherwood matched the player as
they cam on th tee for the cam and
taxted tbem oft at S o'clock. Th Field
elub men atarted away In a canter and for
a while It looked a If they would finish
aoh pair with from four to fir up. Th
Country club men car a a reaaon for
their opponent walking away from them
at th start that th greens were In poor
hap and wer too rough. However, th
play had not prooedd far until th Coun
try club braced up In th gam and It
began to show where th Field club was
beginning to fall off.
In all eighteen hole war played and It
was getting dark when th last matched
pair cam up on th home green for final
play. R. R. Kimball of the Country club
walked off of th links with the best soore,
being fiv up against his opponent, Harry
Morrill, who Is considered the best player
In th Field club. Bherwood and Bartack
came tn even up, a did Rohm and Lowrle
and MoCorratck and Bherldan. These three
pair started to play an extra nine-hole
gam to play oil th tie, but as the contest
gam only called for an elghteen-hole game
this did not count. The hazard formed by
a string of freight cars on the Belt Line
caused quit a bit of trouble and on the
return round a number of balls wer lost.
Bprague made two beautiful cuts through
clump of trees while playing from the
seventeenth hole to th home green. Borne
of tfie finishes caused much goslp among
th players who had already finished, and
who stood waiting to see Just what the
final score would be. Kimball had a lead
-of three over his oppoAent by winning the
Ighth, ninth and eleventh holes, and
wound up even better, by taking the six
teenth and seventeenth holes. Lemlst made
two bad siloes Into th woods on the other
side of the links, about the seventh hole,
and lost on the horn green to his op
ponent, Campbell. The finishes were ex
citing, in that the score swayed back and
forth as each pair cam In, and until th
sixteenth pair landed. It was nip and
Caddies were there In abundance and In
fapt, they wer too numerous, and had to
be ordered oft the links sever I times, on j

that the better candidate will be found on

Important office of assessor Mr. Harry D.
Reed occupies a prominent position. Th

matter for more than twenty years. No
man In this county can be more thoroughly
conversant with real estat description
nor with the values of land In Omaha and
Douglas county than Mr. Reed. Indeed It
may be said that he has been raised from
childhood In the business Involving real
estate values. If he be the choice of the
republican party for assessor ther 1
hardly any question about his election, and
In that event the county will hav an of

OMAHA. Sept 2-To th Editor of
The Bee: Kindly permit the publication of
a tew words regarding the all-absorbing
question of seleotlng a republican ticket
that can win this fall. With few excep
tion everyone agrees that political wisdom
demands that different elements of the
voters In the county should be recognized
as much as possible and undoubtedly this
sentiment will result In th selection of a
republican ticket having many elements of
strength. The laboring people make up a
considerable percentage of trie voting popu
lation of Dougla county, and while th
local organization make no demands for
representation on any ticket, yet th nomi
nation of a prominent laboring man on tn
republican ticket cannot fsil to be ap

member of organized labor, being a mem
ber of th Order of Railway Conductors
and th Switchmen, and also being at th
head of the Nebraska State Society of
Labor and Industry, on -of th most con
servatlve labor organizations in th coun
try and yet at the same time one of th
most powerful and effective. Mr. Dona
hoe has served th republican party long
and faithfully and many active repub
licans believe he Is th strongest man for
the nomination for sheriff by th repub
licans. Reasons too numerous to mention
herewith prompt me to ay that A. J.
Dor.ahoe is th logical republican for th
nomination for sheriff, and while I shall
of course do all in my poWir to elect
whoever is nominated, it is my candid
opinion that neither of the other candi
dates can successfully cope with either of
the men the democrats are at present
considering for the nomination for sheriff.
A. J. Donahoe possesses many elements
of strength, and with them all combined
he can be elected sheriff If given th
nomination. A a starter permit me to
say that he is not now holding an office,
is not a chronic office seeker, lias never
sought an office before, and did not con
sent to run for th office of sheriff until
he had been solicited by score of his
friends, and then only after months of
serious consideration of the matter on his

, truly, iXJ D. rOtrTSK.
The month of October will be a very In
teresting one for the higher onlera of Ma
sonry, the entire month being given over
to some of the conventions and councils of
the order.
The first meeting will be that of the gen
eral grand council of the Royal and Select
Master of the United States, which con
venes at Little Rock, Ark.. Octuber 6.
This iody Is composed of three representa
tives from each state in the union, the rep
resentatives being the three highest offi
cer of the grand council of the various
states the grand master, th deputy grand
master and the grand principal conductor
of the work. They legislate for the order
throughout the United State and, while
the order Is one which does not appear
prominently before the public on ordinary j
occasions. Its meetings are of much In
terest to the craft at largo, especially as
there Is a growing sentiment throughout
the grand Jurisdictions to make member
ship In the council prerequisite to member
ship in the chapter of Royal Arch Masons.
The second meeting of national Im
portance will be the grand chapter of Royal
Arch Masons, which will convene at Little
Rock, October 16, It being understood that
the grand council will complete Its work in
one day. This body Is composed of the
grand high priests, grand king and grand
scribes of the various grand chapters of ths
several slatei of the union, and Its sessions
are generally longer than the meetings of
the grand council for the reason that the
chapter Is one of. the required degrees In
tfie York rite previous to taking the high
est degrees of the Templars.
It la seldom that there is a full repre
sentation at the meetings of the general
grand council and the general grand chap
ter, one of the grand officers of the state
usually representing his fellows and vot
ing the entire strength of his Jurisdiction.
This course has been pursued In the case
nf Nebraska this year. Judge Guslav An
derson being deputized to represent this
state at both meetings. He will leave for
Little Rock Friday.
Before the Judge returns to Omaha he
will have attended a far more Important
meeting than either of these, the biennial
session of the supremo council of the
Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite, which
will convene October 19, at Washington,
D. C, the Judge being one of the twenty-
four men who are entitled to a voice and
vote in this body. As he Is a member of
the committee on foreign relations, he must
be in Washington some days before the
opening of the council and will be at head
quarters October 12, remaining there dur
ing the sessions, which will probably con
tinue for two or thrse weeks.
Something of more than utual Interest
center around the coming meeting of the
grand council, because of the probability
of an Increase In the membership of that
body, tinder It constitution there can be
but thirty-five active members of the body,
who are known as Inspector general. At
the last council there were twenty-six mem
bers, -which Is as many as there has ever
been, the constitutional limitation having
never been reached since the organlxatlon
of th grand council of the southern Juris
diction, which Includes all of th United
States outside of that portion bounded on
the south by the Ohio river and on the
west by the Mississippi river. This sec
tion Is under the Jurisdiction of the grand
council of th northern Jurisdiction, which
held Its meeting in BoHton last week.
Two of the inspectors general having
died within the last two years. It is prob
able that 'successors will be elected, while,
on account of renewed activity in some
part of the country, it I possible that the
number will be Increased above twenty-six.
In this matter It Is Impossible to make a
forecast, a the Inspectors are so widely
scattered that they seldom confer except
nt tho biennial meetings. It is understood,
however, that th vacancy in North Da
kota will be filled, as well as the vacancy
In the state of Washington, as those grand
Jurisdiction are very active and require
the presence of a thirty-third degree mason.
The foreign relations committee will have
some Interesting things to consider and
the evex present "French situation" may
not be the least of them. At the last
biennial council the Mexican grand lodge
matter was settled satisfactorily and the
Mexicans have put themselves In good
shape before tho Masonic world. The
French situation" Is not of such easy
solution, as it is a matter of public knowl
edge that there ia considerable divergence
of opinion as to the merits of the case and
even locally there are those who raise a
word of defense for France.
Nebraska lodge No. 1, Knights of Py
thias, will recommend to the new grand
chancellor to be elected next month, th
name of Dr. Roy A. Dodge for appoint
ment as deputy grand chancellor. At the
coming grand lodge the representatives
from No. 1 will urge united action on the
part of the knights of the state looking to
ward the enactment of a law similar to that
of other states making it a misdemeanor
to wear the emblom of an order unless a
member. The next grand lodge Is to be
held at Lincoln, October 13 and 14. The
delegates from No. 1 are. Melnrad Wulpl,
George A. Magney, W. T. Denny and Will
C Matthews.
A temporary organization looking toward
the formation of a company of the Uni
form Rank Knights of Pythias was effected
at the hall of Nebraska lodge No. 1 last
Monday night. The officers elected were:
Captain, John W. Malone; first lieutenant,
Dr. Roy A. Dodge; second lleutentnt, John
N. Dennis; recorder, Will C. Matthews

appointed to report on uniforms and by

Th case of Balll M. Nswiom t al

Certain Elements Oppose Mnr to
Prohibit Push Cart and

Considerable opposition 1 being brought
to bear to defeat Councilman Dyba'.l's or
dinance prohibiting pushcarts and street
stands from doing business down town. It
Is calculated that enforcement of th pro
posed measure would drlv at least 125 men
out of employment and compel them to
either leave the city or enter new voca

hav dependent families, and It ha been
pointed out that great hardship will be
worked upon them If forced to give up
their following.

with a sprinkling of Greeks, 8yrlans and
