meteorological purposes. The bureau Is
grudnally acquiring Ita own property In the
smaller towns for weather observations,

FUN, OVER VOTING MACHINE
Comty Official of Etch Nationality Want
Recognition ia Character!.
FINALLY DECIDE IT WILL BE FAIR
Company Sends Ont Expert Who
Sets t'p Device In Court
House for Public In- . .
Expert Hamilton, representing the United
Statea Standard Voting Machine company,
had one of the new voting rpachlnes set
up Tuesday morning In the office of Su
perintendent McCaffrey of the court house.
It waa an object of much curiosity and
subjected to many experiments by officials
and people who dropped In.
County Treasurer Fink and County Clerk
Drexel naturally were grently interested in
the machine. They practiced on It for some
time, under Instructions from many ob
servers. Mr. Fink, naturally a mathemati
cian, went at the machine like a small per
son goes at a music box or a squeaking
doll. H wanted to know how so-and-so
waa thus. He operated stops, pulled levers
nd watched results with sbsorblng Inter
est, and finally figured the matter out as
pretty good for the republicans.
Then County Clerk Drexel was allowed
to monopolize the machine, while admiring
party followers looked on with almost pain
ful Interest. Mr. Drexel threw up one
lever with a copper on it, played the next
one open, and then strung a few bets
across the board." Adjusting hla piercing
pectacles and viewing the result, he said:
"That's all right, but they ought to have
the figures, or the hieroglyphics, or equies,
or things. In all the various languages.
For Instance, a Roman or an Arab can
easily vote on the machines, but what
about a Oalway man, or a Luxemburger,
or a Turk, to say nothing of the Assyrians,
direct descendants of the original stock?"
Fink Takes Anotheir Peep.
Then "Bob" Fink looked at It again with
more care and said:
L'h, huh, that's .so. Kelly and Burke
and Shea will have the best of this at first
glance, but the high atandard of education
in the Germanic races ought to count, and
believe it will. Nlcht wahr? Eln, swel.
drel let me see, now! To vote a straight
ticket you pull this lever, Is It not? So!
Das 1st gans recht. Now, to shut out the
double-up, you do oh, yes, Hofeldt, how
It Is, yett"
And soon, with the sdvlce of Bob Hough
ton and a lot of other mechanical geniuses
the county treasurer and the county clerk
saw where the machine may save a lot of
real or anticipatory agony - on election
'Well, I am not afraid of It," said Mr.
Fink. "We ar a progressive people and
this runs for me on the counting end. All
I want Is for my friends to see it first."
"Me, too," said the county clerk.
"Sure, everybody can see it," said Joe
McCaffrey; "the only objection I see Is
there are no Gaelic characters. But maybe
the Irish can pull the levers with any other
nationality. They do on the railroads." '
"That's true," said Register of Deeds
Deuel, "but I cannot forget that there are
a good many holes in a skimmer." And he
replaced his baize summer garment and
thoughtfully passed out.

HIS CONSCIENCE DEMANDS A HEARING
Csasot Determine Offhand Whether
He Could Do Party Jastle aad
Atteaa to Private
Although the republican state convention
Is to be held Thursday at Lincoln. Bin to
Chairman Burgess, who was In Omaha
Tuesday, could not tell at 11:14 Tuesday
morning whether he would "be a candi
date" for re-election or not.
"I really cannot tell yet," said Mr. Bur
gess, "whether I shall be . candidate lor
chairman of the state committee again. I
don't Just exactly know what to do about
the matter, but at all events I wish you
wouldn't say anything about It Just yet
and I will tell you as soon as I decide."
Burgess and Ed Slzer, postmaster at
Lincoln and political manager of the Bur
gess element in Lancaster county, had
Just separated down Farnam street.
"We Just happened to meet in Omaha
this morning," said Burgess, referring to
himself and Slzer, who he asserted, was
up on "postofflce business."
"When will you know whether to run
tor stats chairman or not?" was asked
"Well, er-ah why later In th day," h
"Who and what are to determine It for
"Oh, well, you see there are other In
terests" Seises the Baaaeatloa. .
"I see you have been elected president
of the American Protective association or
something like that."
"Yes, the American Order of Protection,"
quickly interposed Burgess, and then get
ting away from the thought of the antl
Cathollc crusaders, he added, as if inspired
by a splendid suggestion:
"Yes. you see that is It. I hav been
elected president of thl concern, which Is
a beneficiary order, and I am Just now
deliberating whether I could conscien
tiously accept the state chairmanship
again and do Justice to that position while'
holding thla other office. I am in doubt."
And then deep wrinkles made their ap
pearance in Mr. Burgess brow, denoting
the profound study Into which he had
plunged over this Intricate problem which
was so harrasslng his brain.
Yes. It is Just that One thing which
stands between me and a decision. I
really don't know what to do."
But as he walked east on Farnam street
he remarked that he would know "later
In the day."
Burgess didn't say whether or not he
felt It necessary to come to Omaha to
decide later In the day" whether accept
ing the beneficiary Job would prevent his
being chairman Spain.

COMMERCIAL CLUB AFFAIRS
State Association Expeeta to Hold
Meetings In Omaha Some
Time In October.
The State Association of Commercial
clubs, which was organized at Fremont
last winter, expects to hold a meeting In
Omaha sometime In October. At Its meet
ing Tuesday the board of directors of the
Commercial club of Omaha decided to ask
the association to make the club room Its

INDIAN FOR STATE COURT
Silas Woods Probably Will Ifot Be

It la not probable that the government
will undertake the trial of Silas Woodsytha
Omsha Indian, Indicted for the murder of
another Indian, George Phillips, in the
summer of llwt. at Woods' home In Thurs
ton county. While the case has not been
dismissed In the federal court it probably
will be In the event of a formal Indictment
being found against Woods In the district
court of Thurston county.
The attitude of the government In thla
matter ia assumed at thla time as a result
of the Brewer decision, which holds that
Indians who hold land allotments are aa
amenable to the atate lawa aa any oth
cltlsen, and the state courts are the
courts of original Jurisdiction in such
cases as the Woods' murder case.

NEW CREIGHTON SCHOOL OPEN
Colleae of Pharmacy la Dolna; Easi
ness aa an Active Department
of the. Oreat lalveralty.
The College of Pharmacy la the latest ad
dition to the group of colleges composing
the Crelghton university. It has been In
successful operation four years, known as
the Omaha College of Pharmacy. It has
been steadily growing under the manage
ment of the present dean, Edmund Thorp,
M. S. Ph. O., who Is a firm believer In hard,
thorough and practical work by the stu
dents. In the malntlass room, which also con
tains the dean's office, the walls are lined
with shelves containing the official drugs
recognized In the United States pharma
oopoela. These are for the use of the
students who are expected to familiarize
themselves with them and be able to Iden
tify them. Crude drugs, such as roots.
barks and flowers are provided and the
student Is required to reduce them to prac
tical use, and become acquainted with their
physical properties and their drug value.
Each student Is required during his course
to manufacture from crude materials a
set of one hundred samples fit to be used
by any pharmaceutical chemist. A prize
of considerable value is awarded for the
best set of samples.
The study of botany, of physics, chemls-
ry and the laboratory work of the Junior
year is done In the splendidly equipped
laboratories of the Dental college on the
third floor of the building.
The studies In quantitative analysis, phar
macy, mnterla medica and the manufac
ture of chemicals by the members of the
senior year are accomplished on the ground
floor, which contains a pharmaceutical lab
oratory td accommodate sixty students
Each is supplied with a locker and drawers
gas snd water, and with a set of working
In the Junior year there are Ave courses
followed, and each course In turn is finished
before another Is begun. First, quallta-
Ive analysis, pharmacy and Latin, fphcr-
maceutical and medical.) Second: p'.iyslcs
I-atln and pharmacy. Third: organic and
Inorganic chemistry. Fourth: physiology
and pharmaceutical chemlBtry and prob-
ems. Fifth: experimental chemistry and
qualitative analytical chemistry. In Iho
senior year the courses are: First, manu
facturing chemistry and dispensing. Sec
ond: quantitative chemical analysis, drug
assaying, physiological chemistry, urinal
ysis and toxicology. Third: materia
niedlca and therapeutics and the fourth ia
pharmacy. Beside these courses, there are
classes in commercial training, special lec
tures in materia medica, anaethetlcs and
first aid In emergencies, bacteriology, toxi
cology and pharmaceutical Jurisprudence.
"The average age of our students Is 21,"
says Dean Thorp, "a time of life, I belleve
when a man Is best fitted for hard mental
study. We have two young women this
year In the senior class, and seven In the
Junior. There are more women this year
In the Crelghton College of Pharmacy thnn
In any other college of pharmacy In the
United States. They take to pharmaceutical
work and are very successful In It. They
are delicate of touch in experimental work
and possess accurate and analytical minds.
"Prospects for this year are very en
couraging. On opening day we had fifty
one students and that means about two
thirds of our full attendance, but with the
new superior facilities it would not be sur
prising if we reached the hundred mark
this year." i

sent to numerous parties In the state and
are gradually finding their way to the
federal authorities at Omaha. The game
Is an old one and very few people are
caught by it now.
The federal authorities wish, however,
that all these circulars may be sent by
the recipients to the United States marshal
here, as it may be possible to trace their
origin and. have the originator of th
scheme ferreted out and punished.

PLENTY OF ELECTRIC LIGHT
Power Sofflclent to Provide for Ak
Sar-Ben, Despite Many Sew
Demanda Made oa It.
No apprehension Is felt but that the
electric light company will be able to sup
ply all the lighting needed In decorations
and street lamps during the Ak-Sar-Ben
festival. The capacity of the power house,
due to the installation of new machinery,
is capable of handling ,X0 more sixteen-candle-power
Incandescents than a year
ago. Therefore the 125 new arc lights put
In the city, each lamp consuming th
equivalent of ten Incandescents In current,
the 2.0C0 new lamps at the Burwood thea
ter and the large number of electric signs
sre not expected to hamper the genersl
service. All of these take up only about
one-fourth of the additional capacity,
