TIIE OMAHA DAILY BEE: TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 12, 1905. KENNEDY ON THE PRIMARIES ConfreHniai from the 8cond Addrei i C t- Large Metting in Eiith Wird i V'- VOTERS TO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR TICKET rarr Faction Should Disappear In ''me of Direct hole aa4 DIN ftmm Should Cad at the Primary. CTles of "What's the matter with Ken nedy for senator?'- mingled with the ap plause at the close of Congressman John 1 Kennedy's feech at a crowded meeting of the Sixth Ward Republican league Id Idlewlld hall last night. In part Congresa man Kennedy said: I ronelder It a duty to take part In every republican campaign when called upon to do ho. Whatever candidates are nomin ated thin fall I will be at all time at the call of the chairman of the committee and earn candidate can depend upon me to do all In my power to elect him. I have never known a county campaign In I'ouKlas when the republican had such good material to select from an It has thla full, j here in no possibility that any man will bf nominated for any of the office who will not be a credit to republicanism. A week from tomorrow we are golnu Into the llrst genlune direct primary that we ever had. The candidates who are asklnir for the suffrage of the party are going before the people and tle voters them selves will have an opportunity under of ficial and statutory provisions to expresa I reference at the poll. 1 have always be lieved In primary nominations. 1 think that most of the trouble we have had In th imrtr. and the democrat party as well. came about from the old system of nomin ating our candidates. People Are Responsible. The people pf this county ouuht to coma out and express themselves, and If they don't do It It Is their own fault. If they do not nominate (food candidates they will bo to blame. If good candidates are not nomi nated they should hold their-peace. It makes no difference whether the primary law le held temporarily Invalid, becausa the primary luw Is here to stay, and no republican or democrat should want a nomination unless a majority of his party wants him on the ticket. Rome reference was made tonight by Chairman Morearly that we have some factional differences and that the, club does not recognise them. It was the old style rotintv conventions wlwre delegates acted otherwise than they were elected to do, and traded one office for another, and no man stood upon his merits that brought thla condition. This Is a Popular government and th nearer we et to the tieople the better we will he governed and the less corruption we will kave in high places. y Judgment Is that the oirrerences grew rom causs that have ceased, it tne ause hava ceased the difference should cruse, too. jsvery good repuoucan snouia stand by the men nominated as the at clared full and free expression of the pop- uiar will. Let us forget we nave naa an-ferences. We are going Into a campaign thla fall ' not only with good candidates but with unusually good general conditions. The country was never more prosperous. The state of Nebraska today 1b a creditor In stead of a debtor. I will admit that there are certain elements of our people that are to prosperous. Large aggregations of capital have appropriated to themselves more business than Is their share. It Is . your duty and mine to see that they are limited so they will not get more than their ; share. V should o frame our laws and KJ so administer them so as to give every man en equal chance. One of the great facts about President Roosevelt that I have ad mired Is that he has always stood by the common people, lie has been ana la what the country needs. M ork Before ' CoBarrcas, I think that the coming session of con gress will be one of the most Important and Interesting that this country has ever known. Theru Is the question of railway legulatlon that I presume will be pushed to the front. I believe that however we may differ as to details that any measure that la Introduced and passed on that sub ject, we all agree that the government has the right to regulate railways. I believe that the creature can never be greater than the creator. Another of the Important Questions that Is llkey 10"Oixne 'before congress la that of the revision of the tariff. The house la pretty nearly equally divided on this point, but the west stands for a moderate revision of the tariff. Not that the principle of protection should be tampered with, but that no tariff made eight years ago can be suitable ror conditions that exist today. The Urn'! to discuss the tariff in now, when the biiHlness of the country will stand It Mt Judgment Is that the people of the west are anxious to have thla question settled so as to give proper and reasonable pro tectlon where It la needed, and so as not to give certain Interests a chance to profit more than is right and reasonable. The gratest figure In the world's eye is I neodore rtoosevelt. It Is not luck but pluck that has made him. Every propo sition he has undertaken he has carried through. lie reached out his hand and In the face of disbelief he brought iieace to the warring eastern nations a peace that I think Is permanent and stands for the progress of that section of the world. The1 president stands today ereat not onlv for what he has done but for the poslb!"'- that are yet within him. I believe tht event wui so snupe inemseivca mat nu 1U be forced to be a candidate fur presi dent again. Candidate Who Spoke. Before Congressman Kennedy spoke I large nuriiber of candidates launched their appeals to the voters. They were Intro duced by Chairman Morearty with ten minutes of Infinitely encouraging and dl plomntio talk about each.

FIRE AND POLICE MATTERS Board Will Assist Water Board to Making; Test of Hydrant Pressare. At the meeting of the Board of Fire and Police commissioners last night permission was given to the Water board to use men and paraphernalia from the fire depart ment to test the pressure of the water company, at a time to be selected by the city engineer. The board took up the ease ef Policeman Thomas O'Connor, who was charged with being negligent in the discharge of hia duties as a police officer. The charges set forth that Officer O'Connor was within a block of the' place where Officer A. E. Hel ler was having trouble with a man who became violently Insane from being over heated on the afternoon of August 7, and that he made no attempt to assist his fel low officer, although he knew something of the trouble. The board found him guilty and fined him five weeks' pay. A petition was received signed by aboVit 100 members of the fire department asking that each fireman be given twenty-four hours oft duty every six days. The petition was turned over to the fire chief and will be acted on- at a futare meeting. The applications of Mrs. J. II. Kirk and Miss Catherine Btlllwell for the position of matron at the city Jail were received and placed on file. The resignations of Patrolmen A. F. Lam bert and Howard Sawyer, who resign to enter other fields, were received and ac cepted. A communication was received from King Ak-Sar-Ben asking that members of the fire and police departments be given an opportunity to participate In the daylight parade during the fall festivities. The com munication was referred to Chief Donahue of the police department and Chief Salter of the fire department, and these men will arrange for the participation of their de partments The following firemen were given their annual leaves of absence: George Ander son, William Bohan, Oeorge Hill, Oliver Morrell, Robert Oliver and Zena Smith. Jailer Glover and Officer Goodrich of the police department were granted their an nual leaves. The meeting adjourned until 11 o'clock. when the question of the financial condition of the two departments will be taken up. KRAUSES PLEAD FOR TRIAL Convicted Land Fencers' Attorneys Argue for Kew Hrsrlog Before Jodie Manner. The arguments for a new trlgl In the case of the Krause brothers, who recently were tonvlcted of fencing public lands contrary to law, were concluded before Judge Mun ger In the I'nlted States district court Fri day evening. Judge Munger has taken the matter under advisement and will hand down his decision In a few days. The motion for a new trial was argued by Attorneys R. C. Noleman and C. C. Barker of Alliance, attorneys for the Krause brothers. Their chief contention is the alleged unreliability of the principal witnesses, Mr. and Mrs. Theodore Osborn, upon whose testimony the accused was chiefly convicted. Affidavits wrere filed Im peaching the character of these witnesses. Special District Attorney Rush, represent ing the government, argued against granting the motion on the ground that the con viction of the accused was complete, after a long and fair trial, and that the attempt to Impeach the testimony of the Osborne at this time came too lata. The tim to Impeach their evidence was during the trial and not dow. He further held that even was the testimony of the Osborns completely eliminated, sufficient evidence had been produced from other witnesses to warrant the verdict of conviction as ren dered by the Jury. Announcements of the Tbeatera. One of the merriest and quaintest ot all Richard Carle's conceits was Prof. Pettl bone. who wanders down Into Texas and thereby furnishes the theme for "Th Ten derfoot."

Miss Ruth White Is singing the leading soprano role with th company this season and Oscar Flginan Is playing the part of the professor. The rest of the cast is of equal strength and the production Is entirely new. "The Ten derfoot" will begin an engagement of four performances at the Boyd on Thursday evening. A matinee will be played on Saturday. In ftome Politics. Mayor King of Nome. Ahuka. Is In Omaha ylHiiing his wife and daughter. Mrs. H U. Mclntyre. at their home, 4-J8 Harney street.

THEIR HOBBIES DREXEL REFUSES TO ACT Comtj Clerk Will Not Pat Dra ud Ostrom tn Ballot. SAYS HE IS WITHOUT AUTHORITY Places Solomon and Tracy on Ticket, and b,e Other Two Men Decide to Besort to Man damus. I County Clerk Drexel Insists he will not place the names of William Q. Ure and Henry Ostrom on the official primary ballot for the office of county commissioner. "I cannot do It," said the county clerk to Mr. Ostrom. "No court will attempt te compel a man to do an Impossible thing, as 1 view It. There Is no Fifth district defined In this county, as the law requires, and I am going to stick close to the terms of the law In this matter. If you, Mr. Ostrom, or Mr. Ure, want to go on thla primary ticket you must get an order from the proper authority." A to Messrs. Solomon aod Tracy, the republican, and democratic candidates Id the Third district, the county clerk said: "I will put the names of these two men on the primary ballot, because I know the district in which they live and where they must run. In the case of the Fifth district there will be no candidates for county commissioner so far as this office Is con cerned. I feel that all my duty was dis charged when I notified the county com missioners by letter that It would be Im possible for me to make up the ballot prop erly unless they redlstrlcted to comply with the rearrangement of wards under the new charter." Some Hot Words. Chairman Kennard of the county board and Mr. Ostrom had some heated argu ment about the failure of the board to redistrlct, and Mr. Ostrom denounced the failure to act as unwarranted. Mr. Kennard took exception to this statement and presented a imp of the districts to show that his own district was the only one tampered with In the 1! Tun ing resolution, which the board refused to pass on Saturday. The argument ended In nothing, definite, but Mr. Ostrom then turned to the county clerk and insisted that he should put th two names on at large, as running for county commissioner In the Fifth district. This Mr. Drexel flatly refused to do, and again announced that unless served with an order of court he will put no "names on for commissioner In the Fifth district. Messrs. Ostrom and L're have decided to go into court and ask Judge Redlck for a mandamus to compel the county clerk to place their names on ' the primary ballot as candidates for the commissioner nom ination In the Fifth district.

Story of ('stoaa In the White House for Eleven Administrations. That custom, despite the strenuous trend of the times, Is not dead In th I'nlted State Is proven by one of the collection of tales out of school Just published by Cap tain Pendel, chief doorkeeper and usher, and oldest employe of the White House. H cite a singular coincidence In which all the ten presidents whose habits he knew so well were of on mind. This I a story of the one thing besides soap and water which all the presidents used In common. It was a little thing but It Is just such trifles that impress uaon us the fact that great men are but human, it was a toilet article. There have always been many rivals of this particular article, but, curiously enough, all th presidents from Lincoln to Roose velt have had an Identical Idea concerning the brand of their- choice. The presidents' of thirty years ago and their successors used It. as did all persons of refinement In their time. Reference la mads to Dr. Lyon's Perfect tooth powder.

WOMAN IN CLUB AND CHARITY An Invitation has been extended to the Iowa Federation of Women's clubs by the Woman's club of Oskaloosa to hold the next state biennial In Oskaloosa. The In vitation comes through the club president. Mrs. II. L. Spencer, who departed recently to spend the winter In Japan. Mrs. Gertrude Nash of Audubon, corre sponding secretary of th Iowa federation, has returned to her home after an outing at Okobojl, and others of the state execu tives are back from their summer outings, and In a short time th work will be well under way for the coming biennial period. At a recent preliminary meeting of the Council Bluffs Woman's club an innova tion was adopted In the way of club ex tension. A musical department was or ganised, and the privileges of that de partment, as well aa of the art depart ment, were extended to men, a fee of 13 being set for the same. There la certainly no more practical or more eertaln way of enlisting the Interest of men In the women's work than to enlighten them re garding It. Of cours th majority of men think they know what It la all about, but the fart remains. Seeing is believing, and as no man can deny that music and art are eminently ladylike Interests, the ele ment of prejudice, which Is one of the greatest obstacles to enlighten them re garding women's work. Is eliminated, and as there Is usually a fair proportion of men in each community who are Interested In music and art, those branches ought to serve well aa mediums through which to reach them. The election of Mrs. Abble Adams of Su perior to the presidency of the National Woman's Relief corps at Denver last week gives another honor to Nebraska. This Is the first time that the office has ever come to the state, and members of trie order appreciate it accordingly. Mrs. Adams, however. Is not unknown In the national ' work. Resides holding prominent offices n the state organisation sh has had a more or less conspicuous part In the national at different times for a number of years. It was In this work that her ex ceptional executive ability became known, and the honor conferred upon her St Denver last week was not wholly without a realisa Wire Mother's Friend, by its penetrating and soothing properties, allays nausea, nervousness, and all unpleasant feelings, and so prepares the system for the ordeal that she passes through the event safely and with but little sufferinp, as numbers have testified and said, "it is worth its weight in gold." .oo per bottle of druggists.

The following characteristic story of Mrs. Decker, president of the General Federa tion of Women's clubs, Is going the round of the press and ought to carry with It more than one hint to club women: Recently the president of one of th musical clubs In the federatlor wrote to Mrs. Decker, saying: "I come to you for help and suggestion. My club Is apparently loxlng Interest and disintegrating. W hn.v tudled just enough parliamentary law to know how to quarrel; and we have sung to ourselves until we are tired and bured. What shall we do?" The letter reached Mrs. Decker when she was very busy, and she. therefore, answered: "Try to sing to others. My fuay day. Excuse brevity." She ant this etter, feeling; sure that sh had no time to really help the woman. To her great surprise, she receive i a letter afterwards from this same club president, saying: "Tour letter wss an Inspiration.
