POLITICIANS GETTING BUSY
AipMng OfBce Beeksrs Find Plenty to In
tenit in Bnpreme Court Decision.
CALL OF STATE COMMITTEE COMES FIRST
After Stat Committee Lead tbe War
It Will Be In Order for
Count x Committee to
fh decision of tbe supreme court that
an election will be held this tall to choose
county and state officers, in spite of tbe
law passed by the last legislature postponing-
It a, year, has worked a sudden
transformation in the local political firina
BMnt The streets have been dotted with
more groups of gossiping- politicians today
than for many a moon, although sufficient
time has not yet elapsed to crystallize the
programs of the various nascent candi
dates. "The first thing- to come," said an active
republican who is In close touch with the
party organisation, "is a call for a meeting
of the state committee. It will be useless
for the local committees to get together
or try to do anything until they know
when and where the state convention is to
be held and what representation they are
to have In It The state republican head'
Quarters have been removed to Lincoln, so
that the meeting- will probably take place
there tn the course of ten days or two
weeks. As the state convention will be
comparatively unimportant one, there will
probably be a little contention over It.
"After the "state committee leads the
way It will be in order for the county
committee to establish tbe rules of the
game as it is to be played here In Douglas
county. We will for the first time operate
under the new primary election law, whloh
requires for direct nominations by all par
ties. The very fact that the law Is a
new one leaves several points obscure and
open to different Interpretations.
Intention of Lawmakers.
"The Intention of the lawmakers was to
have the primary election and the first
registration day In one, but the bill changing-
the date of registration fell by the
wayside. The law contemplates the- use of
last year's registration as the roll of voters,
but the redlstrictlng of the city into new
wards promises to complicate this side of
it. There has even been talk that the pri
mary election law Is 6T Questionable con'
stltutionality, but I do not know of any
one who would care to test It."
The decision of the court affects the dem
ocrats and populists the same as it does
the republicans, and here in Douglas
county they will all be subject to the pri
mary law. The democrats expect to have
their state committee called together soon,
but nothing- has been heard from the pop
ulUts. Dresel is Gratified.
County Clerk Drexel expresses gratifica
tion over tbe decision of the supreme court
knocking out the biennial election law.
"It will," says Mr. Drexel, "give the
democrats a better chance to win, as the
election will be held in an off year." But
in another direction the county clerk sees
trouble ahead for his office. This is In
the matter of preparing- for the election,
lie thinks there will be some difficulty in
getting all the preliminaries ready on time,
especially on account of the delay on the
part of the city council in dividing- the
newly arranged wards Into primary dis
tricts. "All of these precincts must be arranged,"
says Mr. Drexel, "and the voting: places
fixed upon, so that they can be announced
in the proclamation of the county
clerk calling; for a primary election,
As this must be published about July 20, it
will take some swift work by the council.
This office will proceed Just as if every
thing- was fixed, and if we should be
brought up against the kind of a problem
I have Indicated, we will simply appeal to
the legal authorities to straighten out any
Under the new primary law, the primary
is to be held on Tuesday, seven weeks pre
ceding the general election, which would
make the date Tuesday, September 26. At
least sixty days before this date the clerk
must publlHh a notice once a week for
three consecutive weeks tn at least two
newspapers. He must also post, in each
precinct, notices of the time and place
where the primaries will be hold.
Filing; of Applications.
Candidates who desire to be voted for
at the primaries must file their applications
for place on the ballot with the clerk thirty
days before the date for the primary,
and before doing; so must deposit with the
county treasurer 1 per cent of the total
emoluments of the office they seek for the
term. For instance, in the case of a candi
date for county clerk, salary 2,500 a year.
the fee will be M, 1 per cent on $6,000.
The county treasurer's receipt will be the
clerk's warrant for placing; a man's name
on the primary ballot. No fee will be less
than J10 under the law. Men who want to
be delegates to a convention must pay a
filing fee of SO cents.
Political parties having- representation on
the lost general election ballot shall be
entitled to a separate primary ballot if
they polled 1 per cent of the total vote.
The clerk must group all the candidates of
one party on a separate ballot; of -these
samples must be conspicuously posted. All
ballots will be uniform in size and color.
Rotation of the names of candidates for
any office Is also provided for, this being
a detail of the printing, so that each man's
name shall appear an equal number of
times at the top. After being thus printed
the ballots will be laid off In piles, one at
a time, to maintain the regularity of this
provision. Polls for the primary are to be
open from 8 a. m. to t p. m.
Incidentally it may be stated the con
ducting of a primary election will cost the
county about $18,000, according- to Mr.
Drexel, and fees will be but a small part

WIZARD GOES TO PORTLAND
KUpatriclc, One-Legged Cyclist,
Passes Throuah Omaha on
Way to Exposition.
Charles O. KUpatrlck, originator and pro
ducer of sensationalism, who made the ride
for life with his bicycle and one leg at
Krug park last summer, passed through
tbe city Friday morning enroute to the
Portland exposition, where he will put on
his new stunt. This consists of riding- an
auto at the rate of twenty-five miles an
hour up steep Incline, turning- It around
on a sixteen-foot platform, and then mak
lng the ride down the Incline again. He Is
famous for hts capital steps ride, spiral

aerial loop-the-loop, flying' machines and
other death-producing equipments which he
operates, although he has but on leg Isft
INTEREST NOT UP TO CITY
Proceeds on Claims of Outside Persons Not
Chargeable to Municipality.
SUCH IS DECISION OF MR. BREE.N
Demand for Opinion on Subject
Grows Ont of Itefusnl of Grant
to Accept Warrants,
City Attorney Breen has given the city
treasurer a written opinion In which he
lays down the rule that the city cannot
be held responsible for interest on claims
wnlch have been held up by lltlgatiou
started by outside persons.
The demand for an opinion on the sub
ject grew out of the refusal of John Grant,
general manager for the Nebraska Bltu
llthlo company, to accept the face value of
the warrants for paving and paving- repairs
in 1904, Just released under an agreement
among the warring paving contractors.
Grant requested St42 interest, or at the rate
of 7 per cent on all the warrants, and the
treasurer promptly refused to pay it.
The matter was Immediately taken up
with the 'legal department and the city
attorney lost no time In expressing- his
views. He says positively that there is no
warrant or authority for holding the city
liable for the Interest In such cases, which
grew out of the bitter fight between Grant
and the Barber Asphalt company. Using
one .case as an example, he shows that a
warrant for $8,29C for 1904 paving- repair
work was ready for payment September
21, 1904, the claim having been allowed by
the council. A competing contractor,
Charles E. Fanning;, filed notice of an ap
peal from tbe allowance of the claim and
carried the matter Into court. The city
was restrained from paying over the
money, although It had the cash on hand
to do so.
Agrree to Dismiss the Case.
Whereas the Barber company had about
$16,000 worth of Grant's claims tied up, the
latter got the bars put up on over S42.000
coialng to tbe former. Matters hung this
way until the other day, when it was
agreed to dismiss the cases and let the
money get Into circulation. The Barber
people up to this time have made no claim
for interest, but Grant did. He complains
that the law requires the person making
the apteal to put up a bond covering the
costs of the case only, leaving no one ex
cept the city vulnerable for the Interest.
Attorney Breen points out that if Grant's
claims for interest were recognised as
valid there would be nothing to prevent
persons having claims against the city to
file appeals against one another and make
a sort of Investment deal, with the exces
sive 7 per cent Interest rate as the booty.
He says the city Is not Interested at all,
was willing and anxious to pay its debts,
but was prevented from doing so through
do fault of Its own, and he does not pro
pose to let It hold the sack for warring
contractors, If he can help It. '
More litigation may grow out of the city's
refusal to pay the Interest, and the old
game of blockade and dog in the manger
tactics may be started again among tbe
city July 3, at 10:25, and the train bearing
the Nebraska delegation will leave Omaha
July 4 at 4:10 p. m. The Rock River (111.)

SUIT COMES FR0M DECISION
Action Filed Aicalnst Globe Unllding
Company, Sbermnn-McConnell et
nl, to Enforce Collection.
As an outcome of the recent decision of
the state supreme court In the Iltlgutlon
affecting the old Globe Savings bank, At
torney Arthur C. WakeSey, acting for
Arthur C. Rawson, has filed a suit against
the Globe Building company, Sherman &
McConnell Drug company ct al, to enforce
the collection of $4,2u2.S2. Plaintiff recov
ered Judgment for this amount July 22,
1904, against Emma O. Devrles, adminis
tratrix of the estate of Henry O. Devrles;
David T. Mount, Globe Loan and Trust
company and Globe Savings bank. The
judgment was based on a bond given to
settle all the liabilities of the bank. On
account of the bankruptcy of Cadet Tay
lor tn July, 1904, the Judgment was stayed
as to him for a year.
The Sherman & McConnell Drug com
pany Is brought Into the suit simply as a
leaseholder of lot 1, block 107, city of
Omaha. Plaintiff asks that the court shall
adjudge and decree that the Globe Build
ing company holds ' a long lease of the
north 22 feet of said lot in trust for the
Globe Loan and Trust company, Cadet
Taylor, W. Beach Taylor and the other
parties to tho suit; also that .the same
may be appraised and sold to pay the
judgment. It Is further asked that the
drug company and all others be enjoined
from paying rent except to a receiver to be
appointed by the court. The sheriff or
some other responsible party Is to be named
as such receiver If tbe prayer of the peti
tion Is to be granted.

"It is little less than criminal for a news
paper to print a story to the effect that
Omaha has a typhoid epidemic," said
Health Commissioner Ralph. "Ianguuge
is hardly strong enough to denounce the
faltilty of statements to this effect recently
made. There Is no typhoid epidemio in

of alarming the people who live here and
giving the city's general health condition a
black eye is utterly reprehensible.
"It is true that for the first five months
of tho year sixty-two cases of alleged ty
phoid, or more than was reported in 1903 or
1904, were reported to this office, but this
does not mean an Increase. It Is due to the

sired was noted almost ImmedlatokVi The
fact Is that In past years only a small pro
portion of the typhoid cases have been re

Not Many Cnses Genuine.
"It is extremely doubtful whether many
tvnhold cases reported are really the djs-
eano. ' We have noted reports of recoveries
coming In within fourteen days and we
know this Is Impossible with true typhoid.
The doctor attending was simply mistaken.
If we could have the blood test for typhoid
the same as we have the culture tube test
for diphtheria I am sure the number of al
leged cases would be greatly reduced. Just
as the diphtheria cases were.
"In my opinion, based upon the reports
of experts, there is no necessity of boiling
water taken from the city water supply.
Well water, however, should always be
boiled before using.
"If there Is uny way to counteract the
false reports about a typhoid epidemio and
the Impurity of our water I wish it could
be done, as it hurts the city and causes
much unnecessary apprehension to have the
groundless statements believed."
