MAHER NOW OUT OF A JOB
Court Reporter Hk'xct 14itaks of Not Fol

IS DISMISSED BY A POPULIST JUDGE
Two MiM-ola Mm Fall to Win f
raska Hrldea and Are Willing to
rTrom, a Staff Correspondent.)
.IN'COI.N, March (Special.) john O.
Msher. member of the ilerdmsn element
of democrats, has been removed from hla
position SB court reporter for the Fifteenth
judicial district and In Ills plare C. B. Scott,
vice chairman of the democratic state com
mittee and a radical Bryan democrat, has
The removal and appointment vii made
by Judfre Harrington, populist, for the
reason, o It Is reported here on good au
thority, that Mr. Mahrr advocated at the
democratic state, committee meeting the
holding of one convention at a late date.
Judge Harrington acting under orders or
upon advice given him by friends of Mr.
At this time Mr. Maher Is out of town
and Is supposed to have gone to O'Neill
to see Judge Harrington and until his re
turn this cannot be confirmed, but an 1ntl
mate friend of Mr. Maher stated that
Judge Harrington had written a letter dis
missing Maher, In Which he stated thnt
many members of the bar had made com
plaints against him for being so much In
politics, and that besides, owing to his fic
tion at the democratic state committee
meeting held recently, many I'.ryan demo
crats had demanded his removal. Judge
Harrington Is quoted ns saying that he
believed with these men, and as they were
men of .prominence he could not do other
than to act upon their demands.
While there Is no doubt thai Mr. Maher
received the letter of dismissal from Judge
Harrington and there Is no doubt of the
reasons for the dismissal, there are some
here who do not believe that Judge Har
rington would have discharged Maher even
at the request of Mr. Bryan himself, for
the simple fact Judge Harrington owed
to Maher hla election. During the cam
paign and before, Maher acted as Judge
Harringtons press agent and before the
election lie worked night and day for his
success and Is In a large measure respon
slble for Harrington being on the bench at
But Maher hss been discharged and C.' B.
Pcott, who at the democratic state commit
tee meeting stood for those things that Mr.
Bryan wanted him to stand for, has been
appointed In hla place. This action of
Judge Harrington In dismissing Maher and
making the mistake of giving his reasons
In a letter, It Is said, will materially In
crease the fast widening breach between
the Bryan and anti-Bryan democrats, with
the result that a magnificent fight will be
pulled off In the state convention.
The removal of Maher Is believed to he
the beginning of a crusade by the Bryan
managers on all democratic or populist ap
pointees who have In the least expressed
en optnlcn that could be construed as an
tagonistic to Mr. Bryan or free silver,
With these men out of office It is believed
their Influence for harm, so far as Bryan
Is concerned, would be materially lessened.
Orders Vlnesrar Returned.
Deputy Kood Commissioner Thompson has
ordered returned to the wholesale mer
chants sixty-five barrels of vinegar that
analysis proved to be adulterated. The
vinegar was discovered In stores in these
towns: Columbus, Madison, Norfolk,
, Wayne, Emerson, render, Bancroft, Lyons,
. Oakland and Tekamau. The analysis made
by State Chemist Walker showed that none
of the vinegar was the pure cider article
and that all of It had been artificially
colored, and was grain vinegar. Mr.
Thompson ordered the retail merchants to
return the vinegar to the wholesale mer
chants, but he has not yet decided whether
i to prosecute the merchants for violating
the pure food laws.

Objects to Par Ins Insurance.
"o prevent Mrs. Elisabeth Hardinger,
ardlan, from recovering upon a life In
suunce policy held by Quorge S. Hardinger,
deeased, in the Modern Brotherhood of
Arerlea, the company this morning filed
a hlef in the suprcnio court In an endeavor
to rove that Hardll.ger took his own life.
At he time of taking out the policy Hard
ing was cashier .of a bank at Overton,
i'b from whlcli, during the same year,
he ta discharged because he was a de
, faultr to a large amount. He at once left
i Nebrska and went to Englewood, near
C'hlcaro. Two years later, so the brief
clalnad, . Hardinger, while in a flat in
Chlcno, during the absence of his wife,
as otirconie by gas, and in this condition
whs dlcovered by the postman. The brief
cliiline. that In this Instance Hardinger
had alenvpted suicide, because when he
recoverd consciousness he was asked by
the phjnVlsn why he had turned on the
gas. ant he only "grinned."
About ten months lalwr Hardinger was
found dud, beside a log In a lonely spot
on an laind In Jackson park. He had a
bullet ho; in his temple and beside him lay
a revolve, from which evidently the shot
had ueenlred. His clothing was unruflled
and the ift arm was lying straight out
along his de. The revolver was near hU
right hand Two police officers who heard
the shot lished to the place and found
Hardingi r lead, and the smell of powder
Was still oatlnrt. It was daylight, and.
the brief clslms, there was no Indication
that Hardingr had been murdered.
Two Want Wives.
W. H. Cnnklln, 14 North Th'rtleth
street, and Joseph Wahl of Thirty-second
and Doane streets want to get married,
and in either of them some good woman
will And a good, loving. klnl. affectionate,
robust husband, capable of earning a good
living. Cnnklln. who said he had bucked
the matrimonial market In Nebraska un
successfully, wrote to the chief of police
in Pt. l,ouls for assistance In securing a
helpmeet; not. however. because he
wanted a police diameter, but because he
yearned for one of those corn-fed Missouri
girls that he had read about so much.
Wahl does not object to big feet. Just
so he gets hi wife, and has written to
the chief of police In Chicago for as
sistance. He. too, has failed In Nebrsska
so far as landing with the fair sex, but
his friends say that neither failed becaue
they were not full of the material for the
making of good husbands, but because
they have heretofore been too bashful.
Neither Is prejudiced against the Ne
braska girls, and If there are any In the
Omaha market that would leave a com
mercial town and come unto the Athens
of the west they will be received with
open arms by these two young men and
will be given a royal reception by numer
ous friends of the two men.
Conklln has received one letter from St.
Louis, and the young woman hss said she
would In the next letter forwsrd her pho
tograph, so probably his case Is settled.
The fact that? the boys wanted to get mar
ried was not known here until the letters
were printed In Chicago and St. Louis.
Conklln denied at first that he had any
serious Intentions, but today he made ft.
statement that he was after a wife and
wanted her bad.

The retail clerks of this city have
organised themselves and have applied
