trars Slow to Come
Discussion of the possible disposition of
the so-called labor vote at the coming
election Is a matter of considerable Inter
est to many of the candidates. Certain
"wise ones" talk of this vote as if It were
a solid and a certain quantity. To this
view an observing member of the Typo
graphical union takes flat exception.
"It is 41ke the vote of any other element
of the community," he said. "It has never
been delivered. In my Judgment, to even
the extent of a majority. Of course, the
unionists have their own friends that they
will sustain on any proper occasion and In
any proper manner; but the blustering
friends of candidates often lose scores of
votes by their Idle boasting.
"There Is not a more intelligent element
of the electorate, taken as a whole, than
the members of the trade unions, and one
of their own number even must give a bet
ter reason than a mere Itch for office be
fore he can get their votes. I think this
view should be emphasised In fairness to
The Fontanelle governors are very much
perplexed over the selection of Justice of
the peace aspirants. Just thirteen, the
usual unlucky number, have tiled their
names and fees for candidates for Justice
of the peace, but only six are to be chosen.
The Fontanelles have promised each of
them separately, provided they will all pull
for the straight Fontanelle ticket without
an "If" or an "and."
And that reminds us that the nomination
of Ten Eyck for police magistrate Is re
garded by many lawyers In the same light
as the solid five of the oounrll have re
garded the injunction of Judge Sutton.
Borne of the Kontanelleites even s& they
are willing to go to Jail rather than to
vote for him, and a great many do not
hesitate to say they will vote for Fryce

The fight among the candidates for cor
oner is becoming exciting enough to make

Donahue should stay In the field In the
race against John McDonald for sheriff Is
absolutely baseless. The fact of the mat
ter Is that the representatives of Hoye
were all present last Tuesday at the hour
named for the conference, but not one of
the representatives of Mr. Donahue put in
"I have been a bumping post for the
mayor and council long enough," says City
Clerk Elbourn. "This declaration is to the
effect that I will not take the extreme
measures to secure the services of reffis
trars this fall that I have in past
years. The outlook Is that many places
will be vacant on primary day, which also
Is the first day of registration. Only 113
out of the 162 registrars have qualified. It
will be up to the mayor and council to
send out policemen to compel absentee
registrars to come to the polling places
this year. The Job is Just a little bit oner
ous and I have had about enough of It."
Registrars are lagging behind more than
usual this fall because they are required
by the famous Dodgo law to act as Judges
of the primary election as well as super
vise the registration of voters. Besides
this, they must attend a school of Instruc
tion, learn how to operate the new voting '
machines and be able to demonstrate prac
tice and theory to the electors. For all
this they will receive but $3, starting to
work at 8 o'clock In the morning and fin
ishing after the votes are counted, and
the polls do not close until 9 o'clock. The
two clerks at each polling place will be
raid $6 apiece, but tho law expressly lim
its the registrars-Judges to J3.
Ten days are given appointees to qualify
and take tho oath as registrars, but Inas
much as the primary Is to be held Tuesday
there la a shorter time Intervening and ap
pointments made now to All vacancies can
not be Insisted upon and the men made to
serve if they choose to sneak out of the
duty. A few have been excused by the
mayor. One of these his honor described as
a cocaine fiend.
"I knew him of old," said the mayor.
"He has gone all to pieces from the use
of the drug. He came In to qualify and I
asked htm how he felt. His hand trembled
like a rosebush In a hurricane, but he re
sponded "pretty well.' His name went oft
Short registration and primary election
boards mean more work for the men who
are on duty. At the best the tasks laid out
for the officers primary day are anything
but easy and present a bigger accumulation
of work than at a general election. After
a taste of the experience It Is predicted
that the professional registrar and election
officer will dodge the Job In future years.
Those who are familiar with what they will
have to do already are squirming and are
sorry they ever turned In their names to
the counollmen. Some, however, do not
want to break their records of having
served on every registration hoard for long
terms of years. Thvse will be driven to
tasks by pride.

MONEY LOST ON THE TRAIN
Nearly Thousand Dollars Dropped by
Passenger Between Sleeper
and Diner Car,
Upon the arrival of the Overland Limited
train from Chicago Friday morning at the
Union station M. Flnlen, a business man
of Oak Park, 111., reported that in some
manner he lost $960 on the train, his belief
being he left the roll under his pillow in
the sleeping car while he went to break
fast In the dining car. The Joss occurred
somewhere In Iowa.
Mr. Flnlen's story Is that he did not
think to take the money with him when
he went to breakfast, but suddenly thought
of It at the table. He returned to his berth,
found It had been made up In his absence
and then Instituted a thorough search, but
without result, he stated.
Detective Donohoe, who Is detailed at the
Union Btatlon, was called on to search the
car on Its arrival at Omaha. Mr. Flnlen
continued on to his destination on the Pa
It was reported that a Pullman porter
has been suspected of the theft, although
an Inquiry made at the office of the local
district superintendent of the Pullman com
pany elicited the Information that the mat
ter had not been brought to his attention.

PRIMARY ELECTION FORUM.
Donahoe for Sheriff.
OMAHA, Sept. 14 -To the Editor of The
Bee: I am glad that The Bee has given
Its readers a chance to express their po
litical opinions through Its "forum col
umn." As republicans we must consider several
points regarding our candidates, via., the
men, their moral and physical stamina,
their qualifications for the office, their rec
ord, past ami present, their availability
before and after the primaries and the con
fidence their appearance Inspires In the
minds of the people. And then we must
remember that local politics demand clwn
men men who will strengthen the ticket
after It Is nominated, and when elected be
a credit to the party and themselves.
Now, I will come to the question of
sheriff of Douglas county, in the hands of
the democrats for the last six years. It
Is necessary that we nominate a man who
has the above enumerated qualifications.
8uoh a man we find In the person of A. J.
(Tony) Donahue, candidate for the repub
lican nomination for sheriff.
Now, Mr. Editor, I desire to say that I
have known Mr. Donahoe for about eight
years and that we have a mutual ac
quaintanceship of several hundred people
in this county, and I have never yet heard
one word against him from any one.
My Judgment tells me that the people
of Douglas county will nominate him for
the office September 19, and when they do,
the republicans of Douglas can rest as
sured that they have made no mistake, for
the "Fontanelle club" will not "knife"
him. the "machine" cannot and the Clvlo
Federation has nothing against him, and
with his magnetio personality he makes
friends with all he comes in contact with.
Another thing occurs to me before I
close: "Tony" has no relatives holding
office, has never held office himself and has
no apologies to offer any one. Let the
people decide. I am yours respectfully,
BEN J. STORM.
