CRIST OF POLITICAL COSSIP
Worker Gradually Btinninn to Warm Up
to tbe Coming Primary.
TUG-OF.WAR ON SHERIFF IN BOTH PARTIES
Talk Heard Street Coraera Bad

the Laeal Political
Although no perceptible popular Interest
In the primary election to be held next
Tueaday under the new Dodge primary
law haa manifested Itself, the under cur
rent among active politicians and candi
dates of both parties la growing In volume
and Intensity and from now on until tha
polls close the battle will be on In dead
In the democratic camp the contest la
centering entirely upon Power and Flrnn.
The democratic sheriff and would-be sheriff
both appear to be equally confident of vic
tory. John Power la conducting a still
hunt with a good deal of tact and keeps
the telephone wires ao warm that It sug
gests a long-felt want for a second tele
phone system. Flynn. on the ether hand.
Is fighting his battle In the open and banks
almost entirely on the support of organized
labor, with which h has been identified
since boyhood. As the battle la not always
won by the strong nor the race by the
Swift, there Is no telling Just what-the out
come will be when the primary election re
turns are footed up.
"A good many politicians on both sides,"
said an old-timer, "will be surprised at
the heavy vote that will be polled at next
Tuesday's primaries. In the first place, the
fact that Tueaday will also be the day of
registration for the November election will
bring out a great many voters who would
not otherwise take the trouble to attend
a primary. The opportunity offered them
to register and to vote for their preferred
candidates at the aame time will be a great
Inducement for them to turn out. In the
next place, the pulls, which under the old
system were open from noon until i p. m..
will now be open from t In the morning
until at night, or very nearly double the
length of time, and the chances are there
will be more than twice as many votes
cast as at any preceding primary of both
parties combined. The participation of men
of all parties on tbe same day and at the
same place cannot fall to stimulate a
marked Increase In the vote, and, last but
not least, the fact that the voting machines
will be on trial will tend to attract voters
to the polling booths."
"The battle royal In next Tuesday's pri
mary will be fought by republicans In the
selection of the candidate for sheriff. With
three candidates in the race, I am willing
to admit that It is nobody's cinch," pro
claimed a Sixth ward antl on the street
car platform, "but I feel confident Johnny
McDonald has by far the best of It, be
cause Hoye and Donahue will divide tbe
machine vote. McDonald is a good mixer
and besides the solid Saotch support he
haa a large following in the country as
well as In South Omaha and Omaha. He
made a very wide acquaintance during his
term as sheriff, and his business partner,
Police Commissioner Broatch, is not Idle,
"Oh, yes!" exclaimed a staunch sup
porter of Hoye, "we know Johnny is fore
handed in politics and knows how to reach
out in every direction. We know, too, how
he is carrying on his campaign In the
county. He went out fishing and hunting
along the Elkhorn and carried with him all
his old deputy sheriffs to beat the bushes
to bring every farmer in tbe neighborhood
to his tent, where, they were treated to
all tbe beer and whisky they wanted to
drink and all the cigars they wanted to
smoke. That's good politics, you bet, but
we are onto Johnny In town as well as in
the country precinct. We are not entirely
asleep ourselves. We know how he is work
ing the reform and religious element up
town while downtown liroatch's plain
clothes . policemen are scouring the sa
loons and dives for McDonald and pledging
their protection to both ends. Of course,
McDonald has quite a pull with saloon
keepers. He kept a saloon for years on the
corner of Fourteenth and Douglas and he
never troubled the dlvekeepers when be
Two separate organisations under the
name of tbe Eleventh Ward Republican

BERG-SWANSON SPREAD OUT
detain rirna Ae-ealree Another Mere
Roan aad a Basement fop
Ball nr. s Pirsetrt,
With the removal of the Orchard A Wll
hlm company from the Continental block
the fterg-P anson company haa acquired
a large room and basement in addition to
the space already occupied. The entire
store of the latter firm has been repaired
and renovated, new steel ceilings and floor
ing having been put in, together with Im
proved lighting. As a result the clothing
store. In its third successful eeaaon. pre
sents a much better appearance and holds
a much larger stock than ever before.
"What Is most flattering to our firm,"
said Mr. Swansnn. "is the steady Increase
in trade no noticeable as compared with
the two previous years. Tou can draw a
crowd with a tin pan and a hammer, but
you cannot hold It with such Instruments.
It Is the same with clothing. Tou may
advertise cheap clothing at cheap prices
and create quite a sensation, but you ran
do it only once. It's a dollar's worth for
a dollar, after all. that brings business
that stays and gives stability to any firm,
and that Is the foundation upon which this
house is built."
"When ready-made clothes are properly
made the custom tailors are not better,"
said Mr. Berg. When they are Indifferently
made they are an abomination. I don't
blame some people for their prejudice. The
trouble with the average man Is that he
buys hurriedly and blindly. He doesn't
find where the best are sold. My experi
ence has taught me that there are in
America not more than eight manufac
turers whose product la worthy of a high
place In a conscientious dealer's estima
tion. These goods are the ones we handle.
They are so evenly balanced that no mat
ter how much at random you select you
can't get anything but rood garments; In
fact, the best America affords."
Said Mr. Swanson: "I have spent a great
part of my life In the close study of cloth
ing and in contact with the men who make
clothes. It Is the mission of myself and
this firm to act as Intermediaries to pre
vent the public from Imposition in clothing.
We act as clothing physicians. If the pub
lic knew the great amount of really bad
clothing with which the market Is
flooded they would flock to us like chick
ens after com. They are coming pretty
fast. We are as proud of our present fall
and winter stock as a father Is proud of
his first bom and want to have everyone
look it over."

This evening at the Boyd that fine favor
ite play of music and endless comedy. "The
Tenderfoot." will open an engagement,
coming for a stay of four performances,
Including a matinee on Saturday. The
company which Is presenting this piece this
season Is Said to be one of the strongest
ever seen In It, being headed by Oscar Fig'
man and Mias Ruth White, who has also
established herself in Omaha as a beauti
ful woman, with a sweet voice and
charming manner. The production is new
thia season, with bright and fresh scenery
and pretty costumes.
Tbe sale of seats for the first week at
the new Burwood theHter will open at the
box office this morning. The Interest In
the start of this new theater Is so great
that lta success seems absolutely assured.
The company begins Its local rehearsals at

together for four weeks at Kansas City
guarantees a smooth performance. The

bill filed by the Union Pacific Railroad
company relative to the taxation of Its
property in Omaha June 29, 19u6. was Bled

The answer of Mr. Hennlngs denies a
number of the material allegations of the
complainants, particularly In answer to
paragraph 7. Treasurer Hennlngs avers
that the city council, acting aa a Board
of Equalisation. In determining the value
of the railroad property, did so In full ac
cord with the law, by multiplying the
value per mile as returned by the State
Board of Equalisation and Assessment by
five, and found the full value of the com
plainant's property to be Ave times the
amount so returned as compared with the
assessed valuation of all other property
within the city, and admits and avers that
the council. In process of the equalisa
tion of all praperty within the city, as
sessed complainant's property within the
city at fO.VO per mile Instead of at flS.OOO
per mile, aa returned by the state board.

According to this equalization by the
proper officers of the city there was ex
tended upon the tax records of the city a
tax in tbe sum of $6.329. agninst the com
plainant, but the defendant denies that
under the law thia tax charge so extended

the company or that It becomes or re
mains so, or that the tax charge of $S.S2S So
is excessive to the amount of I6.SW.18 or
any other amount, and denies that $M9 44
