stated the reason for the action of the
convention was that It would 1 :nipoaslW

real reason for the 'action of the conven
tion was a rebuke to the president tor the
frt It la alleged he naa takjn tn behalf
of National Secretary Wood and the con
vention feared that the president would
attempt to Interfere in district poll tits.
After the storm bad S'lbjldod, G. H.

defeating W. H. Rlddtll, the prcsunt in
cumbent, by a vote of 43 to ,7. F. K.

The meeting closed tonight with a

resolutions, President Kldv.eii was heard.
He said the money had been used In fur
thering the Interests of the association,
but that he could not furnish details of

Democrats Are Eessomlcsl.
The democratic I state committee will
waste no time, money, passes or mileage
In coming to a meeting to select a time and
place for a state convention. The demo
cratic state committee will hold no meet
ing. Instead Chairman Allen has written
a letter to the members of the commute
asking them to state their preference of a
place and a time for the convention, and
When these answer arrive the chairman
will cast them up and name the place and
time for the convention. This will not only
Save expense, but -will prevent any kind of
'a' Jar between the Bryan and anti-Bryan
factloas of the party, or rather what re
mains of the party. It Is very probable
that the convmtW will be located soma
time between the 15th and 36th of Beptem
tr, aa It will come after the republican
convention, which will be held the 14th of
September. It Is almost the unanimous
i opinion among democrat here that Chief
Justice Holcomb will be tendered the nom
ination for supreme judge If hi health will
permit of him accepting it.

Looking I Aatl-Traat Laws.
The fact that Deputy Attorney-General
Thompson was assisting Attorney Howell
today going over the anti-trust laws en
acted by legislatures during the last twenty
years gave weight to the talk that the at
torney general would soon take a hand In
the grain case now pending between the
elevator men and Tom Worrall. Some time
ago Governor Mickey and Norrls Brown,
attorney generr', discussed the matter and
the governor suggested that the attorney
general keep his eye on the nrocee- 'ngs and
If the evidence taken Indicate! that the
state should take a hand, for him to do so
with the knowledge that he would have the
backing of the executive oStce. Mr. Thomp
son said there was nothing slgn'.rant about
him helping Mr. Howell, that he was merely
seeing tor himself about the laws, aa his
office frequently received requests for opin
ions concerning them.
Water Bonds May Be Iavalld.
R. E. Moore, a large purchaser of village
and town water bonds, has raised the ques
tion of the validity of the statute under
which these bonds have been Issued for a
number of years and the matter Is now up
to the attorney .general for an opinion. In
his statement, filed with the state auditor,
which he wants passed upon, Mr. Moore
says the amendments to the original act
passed In 1879 are not germane to the act.
The original act provided for the construc
tion of water works plants without provid
ing for the Issuance of bonds. -
This new act of 1893 provided that "suoh
cities or village may borrow money, or
Issue bonds for the purpose not exceeding
20 per cent of the assessed value of the tax
able property within said city or village.
according to the last preceding assessment
thereof, for the purchase of steam engines.
or for lire extinguishing appartus, or for
the purchase, erection or construction and
maintenance of such water works, or to pay
for water furnished such city or village un
der contract; and to levy or collect a gen
eral tax tn the same manner as other mu
nicipal taxes may be levied and collected to
ah amount sufficient to pay the Interest
and principal of said bonds heretofore or
hereafter Issued aa the same may mature
on all the property within such city or vll
lags a shown and valued upon the assess
ment rolls of the assessor of the proper'
preclnot or township, in addition to the
sum authorised to be levied under aubdl
vision 1, and all taxes raised under this
clause shall be retained tn a fund known as
the water fund.
Auditor Searle passed the question up to
the attorney general and It will likely be
several days before the opinion is rendered,
for the reason that the legal department
Is loaded up with work at this time.

egram.) Judge Paul Jessen granted the
motion for a change of venue In the sev

Th district court was convened In ad
journed session this forenoon, at which
time E. M. Trach. for Chamberlain, read
th motion, as well a an affidavit signed
by some twenty or more citizens, express
ing the belief that Chamberlain could not
get a fair trial In this county owing to
prejudice against him. It waa also alleged
that prejudice prevailed In Nemaha county.

affidavits from this county and fifteen from
Nemaha expressing the belief that he could
be given an Impartial trial tn either county,
respectively. The county attorney also cited
some authorities on changes of venue.

deal of prejudice prevailed against the ex
banker In this locality.

When City Clerk Elbourn had Identified
certain official proceedings after the noon
adjournment the evidence was announced
all In.
Bnrbanlc Begin Argument.
Attorney Burbank, for plaintiff, opened
the argument and was still talking when
the court adjourned at 6 o'clock. He said
the suit Is based on three separate proposi
tions: First, that the men on the payrolls
for April and May were never In the em
ploy of the city; second, there were no
funds available from which the men could
be paid and as a matter of fact they were
paid out money raised by the 1904 tax levy;
third, that at the time they were paid for
their work there was no ordinance In force
signed by the mayor authorising their payment.
Arguing from these premises Mr. Bur-
bank proceeded to say that the Board of
Public Works had never properly approved
the list of names of street workers and' had
not sent the same to the council and the
mayor for approval. He contended that
the city engineer, as chairman of the Board
of Public Works, had made the appoint
ments himself without consultation with
any one else and without regard to the let
ter of the law The attorney quoted nu
merous authorities and decisions In sup
port of his three contentions and read some
of them at length.
Attorney Connell, for the city officials,
will present his argument this morning.

Everything has to have a beginning, and one of the most prolific sources of

orrhoea, etc. While Gonorrhoea Is considered one of the simplest contagious
lliniiiiiiupi;
it has in
vaded the kidney, bladder and prostatic region, rendering It so complicated aa
n k inr.urui.iA in ime cases Perlian the first symptom was a little OIB-
charge, which. If properly treated, could have been cured In a few days. Rheu
matism is another result of improper treatment of this condition, producing not
onlv excruciating pain, but It frequently warps and twists one or more of the
Joints in the body, producing horrible deformities, frequently depriving the In
dividual of the ahllitv to earn a living for himself, leaving lilm a helpless and
tortured cripple for life. Another deplorable result of this disease when Im
properly treated Is swollen glands, that are not only painful, but will finally
destroy a man sexually, and In many cases physically. When this disease
through neglect or improper treatment bv Irs extension has caused a. ryslltlc
Invasion of the bladder, thence by its extension up the ureters to the kidney, it
there produces results that are Indeed lamentable. Some men through Ignor
ance of the consequences which are sure to follow neglect or Improper treat
ment, consider this a trifling nllment and rely upon patent medicines, druggists
and unskilled doctors In an effort to secure relief for tho cost of a bottle of
medicine, and by this procedure allow the disease to irmke such serious Inroads
upon the sexual and nervous systems that It Incapacitates them for the physi
cal, mental end sexual duties of life, and the patient pays dearly for his
economy or the selection of Incompetent attendance.
