Every kingdom divided against Itself Is

Matt. xil. 25.
The Pontsnll club will start Saturday
night at the meeting of the Boiud of Gov
ernors to endorse candidates for the mu
nicipal ticket. The word "mart" is used
advisedly, for even the most ardont Indian
anticipates a long fight and a merry one
ever more than one office all. of course, to
bo trlrtly within the wigwam and behind
doors, locked, bolted and double-hnrrrd.

and only one endorsement available for the

pieces on this rock la more than feebly
It la presumed that with Ttroatcii'a
strength on the executive committer lit
name will be recommended by the select
few, but among the seventy-six governors
both of the other men have many sup
porters. It takes two-thirds of those pres
ent to endorse. If the mayoralty business Is
finished Saturday night and the organiza
tion Is not disrupted, the governors will
deem It much accomplished Indeed.
nuadera Seems In I,ead.
Saunders' friends and even one of his
bitterest political enemies declared Tues
day he would get the endorsement, because
they have counted up his sure votes and
know. Tom Plackburn has let out the
secret that the colors of tho club can't
possibly go to any one but " 'Uastua" Ben
son, but the Erontch machine. In which
John McDonald and R. B. Howell are two
of the big spokes In this contingency, say
the captain has things all tied up, ready
for delivery to himself and receipted
therefor, which saying Is scouted by such
men as N P. Dodge.
After the mayoralty come the city at
torneyship, clerkship, building inspector
and city comptroller. Just what date the
club will get down to these places, and
later to councilman, Is not predicted.
For the city attorneyship It Is given out
that John Paul Breen, present Incumbent,
by reason of Carl C. Wright's resignation
and an election by the council, will be tho
choice of tho Fontanclles. I'p to a few
days ago Mr. Brren looked scandalized
whenever the matter of running for the
office was mentioned, but he now admits
It Is so. He Is going to try for the Job.
No one else has come out for It. The names
of A. W. Jefferls and Ben 8. Baker, and
even that of Irving F. Baxter, have been
floating around In the atmosphere, how
ever. Greenleaf for City Clerk.
Sam K. Qrcenleaf Is practically certain
of the club's pat on the back for city
clerk. W. II. Klbourn, who has had the
Job for six years and who has managed
to make. It pay In salary increases, pota
toes, fire and casualty Insurance and surety
bonds; W. E. Stockham, Inspector of pub
lic works,- and Harry Cowduroy, street
foreman of the asphalt repair gang, have
not been on specially good terms with the
Indians. Indeed, Klbourn dropped Into the
club the ether day for tho first time.
Stockham is not of thRt variety and Cow
duroy hasn't mixed, cither.
Although John N. West berg has been
miking eyes at his old Job in the city
hall, John W. Foad will get the club's en
dorsement for city comptroller, It Is said.
Ho far as known he has no opposition worth
considering. Ho has born at the city hall
ho lung In expert capacities that the comp
troller's Job would seem as easy to him as
For Rnlldlna Inspector.
So far the fluid with respect to the build

Within the last few days politicians of
all kinds have been at the city hall asking
questions about the Dodge primary law.
In this office they have ft figured out that
primary day will be April 3, which 'falls
on a Tuesday. Entries for the nominations
must be filed with the city clerk at least
thirty days before the date, and this should
make events lively and Interesting about
March 1 and for a few weeks prior. Of
course. In view of the supreme court de
cision, filing fees will be knocked off and
listing one's name will be cheap In fact.
It will not cost anything. A deluge of
names is looked for and a ballot that would
make two or three of the old-fashioned
crazy quilts that grandma used to turn out
every fourteen days.
Pertinent to all these matters is the all
absorbing question US to whether council
men are nominated by the people of their
wards or by the whole city. The Dodge
law Is silent on the point. Bo is the char
ter and the election law and all the other
sources of authority that can be brought

to lear. in the quest of opinion City At
tuimy Breen was asked to express his.
Itreen t.les His Version.
"After examining the Dodge law and the
charter I am of the opinion that nomina
tions for the council' must be made at
large, or by all the members of parties
who are entitled to vote in the city, and
hot by wards. There is no direct authority
for such an opinion, but it Is the only one
that can be reuched by logical Inference.
The printury law takes the making of nom
inations out of the hands und pleasure of
the parties and makes the method a legal
election. The general election law provides
that councilman shall be elected at large.
If they are to be chosen by all the voters
for the office. It is reasonable to suppose
they should be nominated by parties in a
similar manner. Particularly Is this view
convincing when there Is no exception ut
tered, either directly or by implication.
Therefore, I say that the nominations for
the council must be at large."

Ia Praise of Chamberlain's Congh
Very few medicines have received so
much praise and so many expressions of
gratitude as Chamberlain's Cough Remedy.
Grateful parents everywhere testify to Its
merits. It is a certain cure for croup and
will prevent the attack If given at the first
appearance of the disease. It is especially
adapted to children as It Is pleasant to take
and contains nothing injurious. Mr. K. A. I
Humphreys, a well known resident and
clerk In the store of Mr. E. Lock of Alice, j
Cape Colony, South Africa, says: "I have i
used Chamberlain's Cough Remedy to ward
off croup and colds in my family. I found
It to be very satisfactory and It gives me
pleasure to recommend It."

cesful he will proclaim himself a candidate

the Intent to defraud the United States of

ranch enclosure in Sheridan, Thomas and
The motion to quash alleges there was
no Intent to. derraud. that the nine counts
of the Indictment are Indefinite, no value
Is charged, the descriptions of the lands
are inadequate and the Indictment de
fective In practically all of Its counts.
There are two indictments, each of which
alleges practically the same offenses, with
some technical differences. One of the
indictments has nine counts, and the other
but eight counts. It is the nine-count In
dictment It Is sought to quash, as it goes
Into more specific detail.
In the trial of the case, which la set for
Monday, It Is expected Frank Lambert
will be the chief witness for the govern
ment, although he Is Jointly Indicted with
the two other defendants In the conspiracy
charge. Lambert, who is held In custody
under $10,000 bonds, was In- conference with
Special District Attorney Rush Wednesday
afternoon for the purpose of outlining the

Many complaints have barn received by
Gas Inspector Lynch within the last sev

are from SI to 12 more monthly than they
were at the same time the year before,
despite the fact that the price of the com-
modify has been reduced from $1.35 to $1.25
per 1,000 cubic feet. The Inspector esti
mates the number of these complaints at
2t. It has been Intimated openly by at
least one of the complainants, who puts
himself on record In writing, that an undue
amount of air Is mixed with the gas, thus
causing the Increase In the bills. Con
sumers say they are obtaining no more
light or fuel than they did 11 year ago, and
still the charges have Increased instead of
going down, as they supposed would be the
case with cheaper rates.

To be health inspiring, appetizing, nourishing the
beer must be good. Blatz Wiener beer possesses every ele
ment of beer quality. Its very fragrance and "body" suggests at
once the honesty of its ingredients. The Vitality of the

original style of brewing accomplish certain results peculiar to
Blatz Beers this is the secret ofBlatz character.

The hop bitters act as an appetizer and dlgestant and the malt is nourishing and "foody."

evidently takes himself seriously In the
further discussion of Bill Rourke, shows
himself to be a Scotch humorist, thoroughly
oblivious of his own witticism. He says:
"Bill has a system of handling ball play
ers that is efheacious to the greatest de

there are but two ways to convince ball
players: to take their money from them In
fines, or to whip them. BUI doesn't be
lieve that managers should take money
from their players.
"When one of O'Rourke's players tries to
loaf, or gets drunk, or tries to disorganize
the club, Bill simply takes him around

whips hint into tractahilily. The player

dealt more gently with his men than this
same "pugnacious" 1.111 "O'Rourke." True,

Bill has found It necessary to defend him
self, physically, against nieu on his team.
Out in Denver, sonic- three or four years

passes at Bill on the players' bench and

recently. Ben Krhufstal thrust his boss into
