1NCOLN, Nov. 4. (h..fcc.....,-. .embers
of the self-appointed committee organired
to compel Rev. Helner to give over to their
management Tahltha home, an Institution
valued at $10,000, which he has built up dur
ing the laat seventeen years, are fighting
among 'themselves and the committee Is
about to become ehlpwrecked upon the rock
of distrust. Thin cropped out at a meeting
held by the committee last night at which
time the committee expected to put the
finish to the Rev. Helner and take active
charge of the home, or get In a position to
do so by securing a majority of the mem
bera of the board of trustees.
The fight came over the spoils which tha
committee expected to get after freexlng
Rev. Helner out of the home. The meeting
closed, however, with members of the com
mittee distrusting each other and with Rev.
Helner, serene and patient, holding the
winning hand with four memlera of the
board to the three which he allowed the
committee to name. The committee pro
posed last night to put two more of their
flock on the board of trustees and thus se
cure a majority, when they could get the
acalp of the Rev. Helner. That developed
the fight. Miss Cora Garner, one of the
chief agitators, wanted to be on that board,
so did Miss Sarah Harris, another agitator.
Mrs. Joseph Wlttman and Mrs. II. M. Bush
tiell were the other two recommended by
the committee for membership. From these
four the Helner end of the board Is sup
posed to select two members. But it hap
pened that the Helner contingent has four
members of the board, a majority, and the
parties recommended will have to be passed
on by the board before they can become
When the meeting was called to order
Miss Cora Oarber, who, besides agitating
against the home, is also an employe of
the atate, holding down a position In the
land commissioner's office, demanded that
legal proceedings be resorted to get Helner
out and at the same time Investigate the
home To the surprise of Miss Garber,
her old-time ally, another agitator. Rev.
Batten, objected to this and proposed the
committee select four names from which
Helner and his board could select two to
serve on the board of trustees. Miss Har
ris favored this move. The fight lasted
for almost three hours and the preacher
won, thus preventing Miss Garber'a "plan
for an official Investigation. The result of
this meeting Is that the status of the home
la the same as 1L has been. Rev. Helner
Is In charge and ne has been encouraged
by such men as Governor Mickey and
others almost as prominent, while the
committee Is still knocking without offer
ing any relief. Discussing tha meeting.
Miss Garber said:
"Rev. Mr. Batten Is being manipulated
by someone. He should have asked for
an official Investigation. Instead of that
he let Dr. Bailey, the president of the
Btate Board of Health, work him Into let
ting Rev, Helner run things Just as he
lias been doing. Miss Harris also Is now
for" Dr. Bailey, when she used to be
against him. Tha whole thing Is just
where It waa two years ago. I think Rev.
Mr. Batten la a good man, but he la just
Dr. Bailey, president of the Btate Board
tf Health, haa been a member of ' the
board of trustees for some years and is
also physician to the home. The last re
ports from the home were that the In
mates were getting' along nicely and, not
withstanding the continual knocking on
the part of a doxen cltlxens of Lincoln,
Jlev. Mr. Helner was getting much aid
from the people of the atate.

All that remains for the republican and
Democratic chairmen to do now Is to give
to tha press their statements of the vote
that will be cast Tuesday. Then It will
be up to the people. Chairman Warner Is
mora than gratified at the Interest that
baa been taken In the campaign by the
county and precinct chairmen and he sees
no reason for anything except the usual
republican majority. From all quarters of
tha atata he has received assurances that
good vote will be polled, and during
thai fast few days he haa done nothing ex
cept to urge the chairmen not to be over
confident. That Is what he has to fight
all during the campaign, because there
bad been absolutely no apology to make
for candidates and no Issue to discuss. It
bas Just been a question of whether the
republican candidates are not mors fitted
for the offices than the democrats and
whether tha republican pledgea made In
the past have not been carried out, while
the pledges made by the fusionlsts In the
past have been of no effect and only made

Joseph C. Cutter, Who wss appointed
some time ago by Secretary Iohson of the
Plate Board of Irrigation to draw plans for
bridges under the law enacted by the late
legislature whenever plans were requested
by counties, has resigned his place and
gone to California. Mr. Cutter wss ap
pointed from Omaha. He will spend the
winter In California. It Is probable that
no one will be appointed In his place, as
the demands of the cbuntles are so few
and far between that the general plans pre
pared by him will likely be sufficient to
supply the demand.

Would Prosecute Enumerators.
In the opinion of State Treasurer Morten
sen, those enumerators of school children
who padded the lists In order thst their dis
tricts could secure more of the school ap
portionment should be prosecuted crim
inally, "It Is nothing but graft," said Mr. Mor
tensen, "because the enumerators were
paid so much per name and every name
that they fraudulently put on the list
swelled their pay, consequently It waa an
Inducement for them to pad the lists. I
suppose It Is the duty of the county at
torney to bring the proceedings and I hope
It will be done In this and Douglas coun
ties and In every other county where the
lists have been padded. There Is no doubt
In my mind but what this grsft has been
carried on for years and It Is time to stop
It. The proceedings should be started
against the enumerators.
"I agree with Mr. McBrlen that the best
way to enumerate school children is by the
attendance. This would to a great degree
stop the graft, as the teachers would have
to report to the superintendent and he to
the state superintendent, and thus It would
be more difficult to pad the lists."

section of Union Pacific train No. 10. The
body waa thrown fully 126 feet, the head
being knocked entirely off the trunk. Mrs.
Wacha had been to town to do some trad
ing and was returning home. The place
where the accident occurred is a bad place,
the mill being close by the track, and the
noise of the machinery completely drowns
the noise made by approaching trains.
According to Joseph Buresh, an employe
of the mill, and the only eye witness of the
accident, Mrs. Wacha attempted to cross
the track and was nearly across with one
foot on the other side when the train struck
her. The train stopped and waited until the
sheriff arrived. Considerable trouble was
experienced In Identifying the remains, as
the clothing was the only means, the face
and head being crushed beyond recognition.
No less than six deaths have occurred at
this particular spot In the last ten years.

any part of the Reef; another 1TO men will
be specially employed to apprehend roaming
Chinese; compound supervision on the
mines Is to be stricter; legislation is to be
Introduced to give Europeans the right to
arrest wandering Chinese In the absence of
police; white residents are to have permits
to possess firearms of any description save
magaclne rifles, and the government will
lend guns and ammunition to poor whites
In the country districts until the Chinese
danger has passed away.
But this Is not the end of the difficulty.

charged to the Intercolonial council, which
pays the South African constabulary, there
will be a strong protest from the Orango
(River Colony, which Is already crying out
that It is saddled with more than Its fair
share of the common expenditure. And If
the Transvaal alone has to pay there are
many who will strongly object to have to
bear additional burdens because the mines
employ Chinese labor. Already It Is urged
that the mines must pay for any protection
The general feeling seems to be that the
Chinese should be strictly compounded, on
the Klmberley system, but before this could
be done the opposition of the traders who
look to the mines for a large amount of
business would have to be overcome, and
there would, nf course, he a revival of the
cry of "slavery" from thoss who desire to
make political capital.
