a business trip to the east; that he had
replied to It and received no answer.
"Before I left the city," said 'the chair
man, "I met Mr. Howell and at that time
he did not suggest a primary, and It Is
my Impression from his conversation that
he then understood no primary would be
held. He asked me what my plan was
to give places on this delegation to mem
bers of the Fontancllo club. I asked, 'If
the Fontanelle club controlled what show
would they give the machine?' He
shrugged his shoulders and walked away."
Howell tried to squirm out of the con
versation, but admitted Its main points.
He contended that he had usked when
the primary would be held and the chair
man replied he was waiting to see what
the socialists would do in their proposed
attempt to have tho Dodge law declared
"I aald," ssser?d Mr. Cowell, "that I
bad delayed calling a meeting of Tie com
mittee, waiting the action of the courts."
In answer to Jeers and interrogations
from the committee, Howell admitted he
"might have shrugged his shoulders and
Inconsistency of Antla Shown I'p.
"Mr. Howell calls the proposed action
of this committee revolutionary," said
Victor Rosewater "As far as that is con
cerned, the whole Dodge law Is revolution
ary. Mr. Blackburn has just proposed
placing the selection of the delegates to
the state convention in the hand of one
man by letting Judge Duffle name them,
but now when we advocate letting a com
mittee of our own members do the work,
making up the list from names submitted
by nvery member of this committee, they
call It 'revolution.'
"Mr. Blackburn and Mr. Howell pretend
to be very eager tn Tiave a primary so the
rank and file may have a chance to select
these delegates, when they know that what
has prevented selection by primary Is the
new law gotten up and put through by Mr.
Howell's bosom friend, Mr. Dodge.
"Iast year Howell and his associates
went down to Lincoln with a delntratlon
they controlled and tried to get the state
convention to throw us bodily out of the
state committee, although we were ap
pointed for two years by a delegation that
bad been, duly chosen at a primary. The
expressed wishes of the rank and file didn't
fount then. ' We had another primary laat
'year and In which Howell was a defeated
candidate and the next thing w found htm
running on the democratic ticket to beat
the republican nominee.
Fair Play Moat Be Mutual.
"He Is for a primary when he carries It
and against It when he Ipse. He wants
'fair play' for himself, but never want to
give It to any one else."
"I Just want to add this: Judge Duffle
has expressed himself as satisfied with the
plan of selecting delegates proposed. The
fact Is, these speechmakers have been
talking simply for grandstand effect with
out regard to Judge Duffle's Interests. They
do not want to see the fair play they put
so much stress on. but are doing every
thing In their power to avoid receiving
fair play for fear they will be deprived of
a lot of political capital. They want to be
kicked so they can go out and show the
dents and say. 'See what the terrible ma
chine has done to us.' " .

Chairman Cowell permitted him to dissect

City Attorney Breen, who Is trembling
In fear of the Dodge primary law being
knocked out by the supreme court, says:
"I would suggest that the county com
mittee adopt a resolution agreeing to abide
by the result of the primary election and
accept the nominees as the nominees of
the party for the general election. In the
event that the Dodge law Is declared In
valid. "It probably will be as late as October 1
before a decision can be secured and then
there will not be time to arrange for an
other method of nominating candidates and
give the aspirants a chance to make a de
cent canvass I am afraid of the legality
of this law. The principle Is good, but
there seems to be technical defects.
"My attention has been called to the fact
that the making of primary day a regis
tration day has not been Included In the
title of the bill. Then section 140 of the
general election law has been repealed.
This section provided for the form of the
Australian ballot. There Is nothing left de
scribing the form of the ballot for use at
the general election. Of course If we use
voting machines In Douglas, the only
county affected by the Dodge law, this will

Interests of the people If they were for

tomorrow evening by the Pennsylvania and
Rock Island for Fort Omaha. This Is the
beginning of the big post, as It Is known

With the abandonment of Fort Meyer
three signal corps posts will exist Fort

corps of the army. Every feature of army
manipulation will be tnught there. Accord
ing to the present Ideas the four com
panies which will ultimately be assembled
at Omaha will be divided so that each com
pany will have distinctive work to per
form. Congress has authorized the pur
chase of horses to mount 100 men. and
these will be known as the mounted men
of the signal corps, trained to carry helio
graphs and field glasses and to string wires.
A second company will be in charge of the
telegraph train. A third company will be
detailed wholly for wigwagging, while the
fourth company will have charge of bal

spondent of the Rocky Mountain News
and Denver Times and secretary to United
States Senator T. M. Patterson, tho owner
of those papers. Ho Is also a stockholder
In the American planograph, the new ma
chine which. It Is cfalmed, la destined to
supersede the newspaper typesetter now on
the market and go Into the great book
field as a labor saving device unheard
of In that quarter before. A machine that
Is In effect a Justifying typewriter Is the
main part of the new invention.
On this machine the operator prints out
his matter Just as he desires it to appear
in the newspaper or Job of printing, the
machine producing a perfect copy, In
which the letters all hnve their printed
value and In which every line Is Justified,
on transfer paper ordinary commercial
paper coated with a preparation of glycer
ine and starch. This copy Is laid
down on a thin sheet of sine or aluminum
and dampened. The printed characters
leave the paper sheet and cling In nega
tive form to the zinc. For this greasy Ink
de.lgn Is there substitutes: a non-
greasy. Imperishable base, which will re
ject moisture and take printers' Ink. The
plate is then ready for press and capable
of producing a million impressions without
What Single Plate Will Do.
Mr. Johnson says the planograph com
pany has produced many thousands of
Impressions from a single plate, at a speed
of 10,000 an hour, without the slightest de
fect being shown.
As Mr. Johnson explains, the process is
simply lithography perfected for practical
printing purposes. A felt roller precedes
ths Ink roller on the press, leaving a Aim
of moisture over the blank portions of
the plate. The design Itself, patented by
the company, rejects moisture and takes
the Ink, which Is Immediately taken off
by the paper Although the matter Is ap
parently composed In Its final form on the
machine, it can be corrected precisely as
linotype printing Is corrected, and can be
"made up" by a clever system of zinc
slugs ontif which the copy Is transferred
before finally being placed on the zino or
aluminum sheet whleh Is placed on the
Along with Its feat of accomplishing
typeless composition, the company has de
vised a new system of cuts, or picture
reproductions, which the, printers pro
nounce far superior to anything the print
ing world has yet seen. These cuts are
produced from photographs without tho
use of the familiar "half tone" screen
and are printed similar to the manner of
the reading matter above described. An
astonishing feature of the process Is the
fact that It reproduces pictures aa well
on the flimsiest and poorest paper as on
the finest embossed sheets. Mr. Johnson
states that eastern magazine publishers

Not a Wild Theory.
"The new planograph printing process Is
not a wild theory or mere dream of an
Inventor," said Mr. Johhson last night.
"Machines and presses are already In ope

the latter city the government has al
ready adopted portions of the process In

here to learn something of the forthcoming

smaller towns and villages could be tele

Burely, In view of facts like these, It Is
to be hoped that we will not ho swallowed
up by a department which tells us frankly
that it has no hope of reducing the l"i0
charge of the National Telephone com
pany. In Parliament there has been a tendency
to accept Lord Stanley's assumption that
the postal and telegraph systems leave
nothing to be desired. Commercial people
know how far this is contrary to facts.
