With the first day of the new year the
true which ha been hanging over the po
litical camps appears to be broken, and
already there s talk on the outlook of the
wprlna; election. No definite head nor plan'
of campaign ha been given to the public,
though here and there In South Omaha
are heard rumors of a possible candidate.
The municipal election will be held this
year on Tuesday, April 3. Under the provi
sion of the new charter, a primary elec
tion to select the cnndldatos of the parties
will be held thirty days previous, to the
general election, which makes the date of
the primaries this year fall on Tuesday,

publish notices of the primaries In two pa-
tier of the city, stating the list of offices I
to be filled twenty days prior to the dste

posted In the regular polling place of the
ward and district, or In such other place
at may be legally designated. After the
primaries the vote shall be canvassed by
the mayor, treasurer and city clerk of the
city. The result of this canvass shall de
termine the nominations. The city will pay
the cost of this primary election, und the i
vote will be by ballot. The hours of the
day during which the ballots may be cast ,

It Is now required that all nspirants must

Nothing ha aa yet been brought before

such a plan had been under consideration
by the Omaha Land company, of which

The Gunthera of Chicago won the third
match and serle from the Omaha picked

showed better form than In the previous
matches, winning the first game by 8s
points, the second by 93 and the third by
123, making a total of S"4 for the match
with team No. 3. They simply won In
a canter, having become used to the alleys
and showing good speed ull the way

with a total of nn and during the after

Gunthera made the high score for the
whole series with a total of 957. although
Sprague's score of 238 made Sunday night
was high for single game. Wood made
an average of 2"3H for the series. Wood
made nineteen strike.
The Ounthers Improved as they played
and at the finish one was heard to re
mark that they would like to take the
Omaha alleys back to Chicago, as they
would be ure to make some records.
Bowling dope was all shot to piece by
these games, as the first was last and the
lust first. Dad Huntington had his pick

make as good a showing as the second
The Ounthers showed steadier work than
any of the Omaha teams and their first
ball 9! times out of 1(10 got the head pin,
and although It did not always hit the
strike spot. It was always so close that
easy spares were left to shoot nt. The
first ball seldom went wild. Some of these
Ounthers almost make bowling a business
and their experience In different alleys all
over the country stood In good stead before
the large crowds which had a slight ten
dency to make the Omaha bowlers a trifle
nervous. The Omaha bowler seemed to
be aware all the time that they were
bowling agalnHt the best In the world and
this had considerable to do with their
making a poorer showing than wa ex

Kansas and Nebraska Decide to
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. Jan. I. (Special.) Athletic
strangers for upward of two years, the uni
versities of Nebraska and Kansas have
latched up their quarrel and have ugreed
to abide together In peace. The break be
tween the two institutions followed the an
nual foot hall game In Lawrence two years
ago last November, in which the Corn
huskers were victorious In a thrilling strug
gle, the fleet footed Johnny Bender turning
the tide In Nebraska' favor by pulling
off a sensational seventy-yard run for the
only touchdown of the game. Prior to ths
contest bitterness had been engendered bv
a protest made by Kansas against Bender
and Wilson, two of Nebraska' plavers.
The Comhuskers stood pat and refused to
withdraw the player in Question until Kan
sas presented evidence in substantiation of
the charges, which were or professionalism.
The Jayhawker sulked, but finally waived
their protest, only to Issue a pronuncia
mento two day following the Lawrence de
feat that relations hud been suspended.
The rupture had no effect upon the Corn
buskern, who promptly picked up a "Hig
Nine" teum as an opponent in place of the
Jayhawkers, but the loss of the game with
Nebraska had a decidedly depressing effect
upon athletic at the Lawrence Institution.
llssiitlsfaction within the student body at
Kansas over the summary action of the
athletic board speedily became manifest,
and. after a lapse of two years, the Jay
hawker board took the Initiative toward a
resumption by appointing abrltratort to
discuss resumption ami al the same time
solicited similar action by Nebraska. The
Cornhuskers acquiesced, and the arbiters
met in Lincoln today and at once caine to
Deun Pound of the law school at Ne
braska and Maurice Benedict, ex-captaln of
the foot ball team, represented Nebraska,
while like service for Kansas was per
formed by Prof. J. T. Walker and C. O.
Plngry. the latter a member of the student
bod v. Prof. Walker at the outset was dis
posed to express his regrets for what had
happened in the past, but Dean Pound as
sured tbe visitor that Nebraska wished
to forget any such unpleasantries, pre
ferring Instead to discuss the future. With
this display of liberality and good feeling
the arbiters lost no time tn coming to
an agreement for a full resumption of re
lations. I'nder the term of the agree
ment the Jayhawkers are to play basket
ball in the Nebraska irmorii as the first
contest provided for by the term of peace.
Base ball and track will come next In
order, to he followed by a foot ball game
next fsll on the Nebraska campus. Botli
institutions are to conform to the con
ference rules governing eligibility.
The agreement reached by the arbiters
Is not Una!, as t li athletic board of the
two schools must meet and approve, hut
the latter 1 considered a mere formality.
The Kansans also broached the subject
of creating a tri-state league to Include Ne
braska. Kansas and Missouri. On this the
Nehraiikaiis weie not so favorably Inclined.
