Continue on Bond Proposition
After Ren-ular Election
Ever since It wan decided by the city offl
rlals to hold a special election on Novem
ber 7 for the purpose of submitting the
sewer bond proposition there has been some
uneasiness In official circle about the
counting of the ballot on the voting ma
chines. The general election laws provide
for the cloning of the polla at ft p. m.,
while at city or special election the polla,
under the charter, muat remain open until
7 p. m.
Yesterday A. 8. Powers; a representative
of the United States Standard Voting Ma
chine company, called on City Clerk Glllln
and explained to him how the machine
could be worked for the bond proposition
only, after the polls close on the regular
election. There la a restricted voter s knob
on the machine and by moving this knob
at ( p. m. the balance of the machine ts
locked. This will permit voters to enter
the machine and vote only for or against
the sewer bond proposition. When 7 o'clock
arrives the machine can be opened and the
total vote for the regular nominees and the
sewer bond proposition counted.
After the explanation by Mr. Powers the
city officials felt much relieved. There will
now be no hitch in the election as far as
the machines go. Special tally books will
be provided for the sewer bond vote and If
Instructions are carried out by the election
omcers the total vote, bonds Included, can
be made public by 8 p. m. Each member
of the election board mill be paid 13 extra
for tabulating the sewer bond vote.
Storm Damage Heavy.
Not nearlv all of the damn Inn (n tv
streets by the storm of Monday night has
been reported. Mayor Koutsky tried to get
about some yesterday, but found It difficult
to get through many of the unpaved streets,
After returning to the city hall from the
trip the mayor said that the storm was the
worst of the year and that a great deal of
damage had been done. At Twentieth and
N streets storm water carried a big block
of the pavement over the bluff, and It will
take a good deal of filling to repair this
washout and considerable expense to relay
the stone pavement Many of the streets
are practically Impassable. On unpaved
streets where telephone conduits are being
laid washouts have occurred. Grading op
erations on Sixteenth street had to be
miRMnilMl a will ka a4ll Ka .
up. The basement of the new fire depart
ment building has over a foot of water in It
and work on. the Union Pacific freight
depot has stopped until the mud in the
excavation dries up.
As a general thing the sewers carried off
the storm water fairly well, but some of
the main sewers were clogged. Men will
be put to work today cleaning the man
holes in order to be prepared in case of
another heavy rain. The cost of putting
the streets In a passable condition will
consume considerable time and cost quite
a sum of money.
Drafting Curbing; Ordinance.
City Attorney Lambert has been directed
by the council to draft an ordinance for
the curbing and guttering of Twenty-third
street from the city limits on the north
to Missouri avenue. The petition for this
work Tiaa- been, published according to law
and now there remains only the passage
of the ordinance and the letting of the
contract. It Is hardly probable that any
haste will be displayed In this matter, as
the season is getting so late. Those who
have taken an Interest In this Improvement
think that It would be just as well to let
the matter drag along through the winter.
The contract can be let any time during the
cold months and everything will be ready
to start this curbing and guttering as soon
as frost Is out of the ground in the spring.
Miu t'hsaw for Paving.
Kven though the money is In sight for the
paving of Twenty-fourth street there seems
to be no likelihood of getting even one aide
of the street paved this year. It seems
that material Is not only high but scarce.
Contractor George Parks stated at the
city hull yesterday that it was almost
impossible to get coment Just now and there
is no use of tearing up the old pav.nent
until plenty ot material ts at hand to work
with. Contractor McGowan is doing what
he can on Missouri avenue, but the weather
has been bad since he made a start and
very little has been accomplished. Resi
dents on Missouri avenue hardly hope now
that the street will be paved this year.

ONE THOUSAND FOR THE FAIR
Cash Donation Made by Woman to

The last vestiges of the Horse Show dis
appeared from the Auditorium yesterday.
Over twenty-five carpenters, gas fitters and
electric workers were at work yesterday
preparing for the opening ot the orphans'
fair, and at 8 o'clock last night most of
the parish and commercial booths were
completed. The following firms have their
booths already erected and today will begin

In all the affair will be conducted upon far
the largest scale of any fair ever yet seen
In the city. Father McNamara was greatly
encouraged by a cash donation of 11.000
from a woman Interested in the welfare of
the orphanage, who took this means of
manifesting her appreciation ot the manner
in which the affair is being conducted.
Some Seasonable Advice.
It may be a piece of superfluous advice
to urge people at this season ot the year to
lay In a supply of Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy, It Is almost sure to be needed
before winter Is over, and much more
prompt and satisfactory results are ob
tained when taken as soon as a cold Is con
tracted and before It has become settled in
the system, which can only be done by
keeping the remedy at hand. This remedy
la so widely known and so altogether good
that na one should hesitate about hi.vinj-
It In preference to any other.

CUTTING SIMPLE ASSAULT
County Attorney Decides to Class Lower
Crime by Negroes,
JURIES FAIL TO GO ABOVE THAT
For This Reason Slabuugh Will Re

Defendants Are Will

Apparently owing to the fact that juries
will not convict of the higher grades of
crime colored persons who are brought
Into court charged with cutting other per-
Bona OI colr' lno county attorney s omce
has adopted the plan of accepting pleas of
simple assault in such cases, where .the
defendant Is willing to enter such a plea.
This is done for the purpose of saving ex-
pense to the county. Juries repeatedly have
returned verdicts of assault where colored
folks have been Involved in cutting scrapes,
apparently on the theory that to use cold
steel to settle their differences is a racial

to accept a plea of guilty of assault In the
case against James Barnett, a colored man.
Barnett, who was out on ball, was charged
with carving bis wife with Intent to
damage the smoothness of her cuticle, be

they could not get together. The county
attorney said he understood the gentleman
was willing to take whatever the court
might give him. If he did not have to go
any farther away from home than the

noon and was sentenced to serve ninety

Cemetery association held Tuesday after
noon in the company's offices, 622 New Tork

Campbell and M. H. Gllss were elected
trustees for a term of three years. Super
intendent Craig was authorized to con
struct a drainage system for the avenues

prove the roadways and assist In keeping
them In good condition after heavy rains.
Flans were ordered for the construction
of an entrance to the park which will be
In the nature ot a lodge for the superin
tendent as well. The public vault Is re
ported as being a great success and has
been useful on numerous occasions. Eighty
I bodies have been placed in this vault while
amaltlng a place for permanent Interment.
From the time the cemetery was laid out
there have been 8.844 Interments. The
original plot was 330 acres and rf this
twenty-two acres have been sold, leaving
298 for future use.
NO BOND F0R CROWE YET
Ball Delayed, Though Prisoner's
Attorney In Hopeful Matter
Can Be Arranged.
Former County Attorney James P. Eng
lish. Pat Crowe's attorney, said yesterday
afternoon there was nothing certain to be
said In the matter of bond Just now.
"The question of giving bond Is under
consideration," said Mr. English. We are
hopeful we can arrange a good and suf.i
clent bond to secure Crowe's release, but
until we are sure of our ground we prefer
to say nothing for publication."
Rumor, seemingly from informed sources,
I Is to the effect that friends of Crowe or.
more correctly, friends of his friends will
put up collateral that will be satisfactory
to a bonding company, and the latter will
then qualify. The matter of combining
the two amounts In one bond 15,000 im
posed by the municipal court and I7.0f0
by the county court can, It is said, be
easily arranged. If Judges Berka and Vln-
. sonhaler assent. -

GOSSIP OF THE POLITICIANS
Republican Vaotgert Working to Oet Oat
PREPARED TO WAIT ON MR. DREXEL
If County Clerk Persists In Refuslng
Acceptance of Committee Somlo
nt-ee Mandamus Will Be
Men In charge of the republican organlta
tlon are devoting much time to preparations
for getting out the registration Thursday.
While the registration was fairly heavy the
first day because It was the day of the first
primary under the Dodge law the vote was
light and many citlsens have not yet ar
ranged so they can participate in the elec
tion. Secretary Greevy of the republican county
committee has filed a list of over 800 names
of men suitable for appointment as election
board officers with Clerk Broadwell of the
district court. The lists were sufficient to
provide a republican majority of the offi
cers on every board. At the last minute
the secretary found himself about thirty
names short, so he proceeded to "conscript"
citlsens to fill the bill. Incidentally he ap
propriated a number of prominent citizens,
who may either have to serve, pay a fine of
860 or furnish a substitute and get excused
by the district clerk.
As this Is the last day permitted by law
for filing party nominations with the county
clerk the officers of the republican county
committee will make a last demand on
County Clerk Drexel for the acceptance of
the nominees for minor offices made by the
committee, after vacancies had been left
from the primary election. If Mr. Drexel
persists In his attitude a mandamus suit Is
likely to follow and to follow soon.
State Representative 8. C. Barnes and
Committeeman Thomas Wiley, have been
placed In charge of the republican county
headquarters at 1712 Farnam street, by the
As to the apparent apathy among the
democratis County Chairman Cosgrove has
this to say: "We have abandoned the old
shouting, roaring, windy style of campaign.
The work Is being done quietly and re
sults will prove effective. We have quit
spending money with cheap shouters and
grafters, and we are reaching the genuine
voters direct In various ways. It won't
pay republican candidates to get the Idea
that the democrats are not putting In good,
hard licks this fall. There will be few
meetings or public demonstrations."
City Treasurer Hennlngs does not propose
to let Billy Kierstead get any the better
of him with the candidates on the republi
can county ticket. He says: "I consider
the republican ticket the best ever put In
Douglas county. It Is certainly a pleasure
to work for such a tlcket I have my coat off
and until the votes are counted, will be
doing everything I can for the success of
the whole list."

Construction of the new buildings of the
Union Pacific shops Is In progress and plans
for the erection of the new general ofllce
building a dream of years are under way,
being brought to completion as rapidly as
possible. The rumor gained currency that
these plans had been completed and all
lacking for the construction ot the building
to begin was the seloctlon of the site on
which to start - work. General Manager
Mohler was asked about this and replied:
"No, that Is not correct. We have not
yet finished the plans for the new head
quarters, but are working on them."
So It is certain a new general headquar
ters building Is coming In the near future.

Rnlldlna- of the Shops.
The first shop building to be constructed
will be the office building and laboratory.
This will be a two-story brick structure,
with offices for Superintendent of Motive
Power and Machinery McKeen, offices for
the superintendent of shops, offices for the
superintendent of tests, Mr. Harriman,
offices for the master mechanics, chief
clerks and others. Part of the second floor
will be utilized for a drafting room, rooms
for the mechanical engineer, electrical en
gineers and inspectors. Here also will bo
a lunch and an assembly room. On the
first floor also Is to be a committee room
and a foremen's reading room. The build
ing will have a tiled roof with blue print
rooms in the ctriler. It will be built near
the Cass street gate of the yards. The
building will be 60x170 feet.
The blacksmith shop will be the finest In
the world, according to experts who have
seen the plans. A two-foot gauge railroad
will run to all parts of the shop, which will
be equipped with all of the best and mnrt
modern machinery. It will be 90x37t feet
and will be en expensive building. In con
nection will be a lavatory with shower
baths and locker rooms, a pet scheme of
,Mr. McKeen's. The building will be of
brick with pile foundation and the Immenxe
structure will be constructed without a col
umn. A lantern will be set in the roef for
light and ventilation and the whole shop
will be equipped with the latest system of

The stripping shed Is the third building
and will be 42x176 feet. An engine Is taken

An iron house also will be built at this
time 1)0x162 feet and will be used to store all
Iron and supplies for the blacksmith shop.
It will have the same system of trackage
as the blacksmith shops.
Other buildings are being planned for

Northwestern Steals n March.
Word comes from Fremont that a survey
ing party Is In the field working on a new
line from Fremont west to tap the Alliance
branch of the Burlington, presumably
about Broken Bow, While the Information
Is not definite as to the road which Is mak
ing the survey, it Is generally understood
to be the Northwestern. One official said
when broached on the subject that the
Northwestern was Jumping liyo that terri
tory heretofore exclusively Burlington, as
a sort of retaliation for the Burlington,

Burlington's Neve Basin Line,
Official announcement was made Tuesday
by the Burlington of the letting of the con
tract for the construction of fifteen miles
of road from Frannle south into the Big
Horn Basin country. Considerable specula
tion has been made concerning the con
struction of this line, but nothing definite
has heretofore been given out. This la the
first of contracts to be let of 160 miles of
road which the Burlington will build Into
the Big Horn Basin from Frannle to Wor
land. This road will run through a country Irri
gated by private enterprises and will pass
through the Mormon towns of Lovell,
Bryon and Crowley. It will run through
Basin, the county seat of Big Horn Basin
county, to Worland. The proposed termi
nus Is situated ln the enter of 65.000 acres
of Irrigated land, and as sixty acres of Irri
gated land Is equal to I'iO acres of ordinary

meeting on the night of August 14. was
called up for sentence Tuesday afternoon In
the criminal court. Before sentence was

The bill on at the Orpheum this week ts
drawing well and scoring big. Melville
and Stetson, as Is their want, are taking
to themselves a goodly share of the favor
In turn for their merry contribution. The
Mlllman trio are also making a 'hit" On
Thursday the regular popular price mid
week matinee, which is elected by so many
women for their weekly visit to the popu
lar playhouse, will be given.
"Piff, Faff. Pout" will be at the Boyd
on Thursday night to open an engagement
of three nights and a matinee. This an
nouncement ought to be enough to flit
the theater without any further argument,
for everybody has heard of the clever
arrangement of fun, music, mirth, non
sense and jollity that kept New Yorkers
laughing for weeks when all other things
had failed. It is to be offered here Just as
it was on Broadway, with a big all star
cast headed by Kathryn Osterman, ' the
well known and always liked comedienne.
The company has seventy-five members,
the book has twenty-two song hits and
the muRio is all ot the kind that goes to
the heart and sets the blood tingling.
It surely Is to laugh at the Burwood
this week, the company more than making
good with the Gillette comedy, "All the
Comforts of Home." The next shopper's
matinee at the Burwood will be given on
Thursday afternoon. This arrangement
Is proving most popular with the ladles,
who can make thlr visits to the stores,
and still have time to see a fine perform
ance In Omaha's cosiest theater.

has decided to hold a special matinee on
Monday. October 23.
It Is claimed that the Itaverly show Is
the best of the minstrel shows, and the
Russell, the premier comedian, is without
a doubt the greatest of all burnt cork
artists. He Imitates no one, but ptvsents
a type of black face comedy which Is ex
tremely funny and he Is well named "tho
assassin of sorrow." Seats are now on
sale for the entire engagement.
