Hours of balloting-, caucussing, connota
tion and conference last night left tho
fioard of governors of the Fontanelle club
till divided aa to who ihould have the en
dorsement of the club for the republican
nomination for mayor. When the last of
sixteen ballots wss taken It showed a result

In the executive committee of nine the
Vote had been: Benson, 4; Broatca, 3;
Saunders, 2.
Neither of then votes Is derisive, and the
iowers that be in the club will spend
Soother week in setting up the pins and
fixing things, and on next Saturday night
another effort will bo made to name a can
didate for the club.
Tha Bensonltea went Into the conference
last night well organised and determined.
They stuck by their candidate from start
to finish with no show of weakening, and
professed to feel confident at the time ad
journment was taken that victory would
ultimately be theirs. The flambuoyant an
nouncement In the Dally News on Friday
evening of the candidacy of Mr. Benson
had not the desired effect of stampeding
i he Fontanelle braves to his support, while
'the deadlock seemed to Indicate that his
carefully nurtured plans had not sufficiently
matured. Within a fortnight Mr. Benson
had refused to answer certain leading ques
Hons, saying he was not a candidate, and
did not know that he would be before the
people. When he did come out he would
announce his platform.
How They 1,1 ne I p.
, Tom Blackburn, Harry Brome and Harry
Burnett have been the chief engineers of
the Benson boom, but have met with much
opposition In the Fontanelle councils. In
deed, some of the membera of the Inner
circle have been heard to say that they
would be everlastingly jumped up and
down If they were going to let Blackburn,
Brome and Burnett run things as they bad
been trying. R. Beechcr Howell Is num
bered in this list, and has pinned his faith
to Captain Broatch. with whom he pur
poxes to sink or swim. The Broatch men
have been battling a hopeless fight for
some time past. They have realised the ap
parent Impossibility of Broatch being able
to land the endorsement, and have sought
to break the Benson strength In favor of
some other candidate.
Many of The members, realizing how dis
tasteful Benson is to a large number of
the republican voters of the city, on ac
count of his bolt of the city convention
three years ago, and his effort to secure
the office of mayor as an Independent can
didate, have demurred at the proposition to
endorse him. These have also felt that j
Broatch would be very objectionable to a
large number of republican voters, and so
have put their faith in Saunders. While
Saunders Is not popular In the Inner cir
cle of the club, he developed much strength

pretend to do the thinking for the Fon
tanelle. Indications of a Split
It wua predicted last week tha effort to
endorse a candidate for mayor would lead
to a split in the club, and the developments
seem to justify that prediction. No reason
exists to belhve that Benson "will abide by
the, decision of the club any more than he
did by the decision of the republican city
convention. Friends of Broatch assert that
he will bolt the Fontanelle decision If he
does not receive the endorsement. This
makes It pretty certain that the fight be
tween the three will be carried to tha pri
maries and that ttte factions into which
the organisation seems to be dividing will
have It out there.
Much friction was engendered at the
meeting last night. Telephone calls and
messengers were sent after absentees, and
every effort was made to muster up enough
vots to make one or the other of the can
didates, but without suoceee. Those who

out that no attempt was to be made in his
trip across the country to break a record
on land or sea, still the continuous trip
was the fastest that whs ever accomplished
over the route.
The party consisted of Mrs. llartinmn
and daughters snd Miss Alice ltoosevelt,
and Mr. Harrlman gave Imperative in
structions that the safety and comfort of
his guests were to be the first considera
tion throughout the Journey. A prominent
feature of the entire trip waa the careful
and uniform manner in which these in
structions were carried out on each of the
different lines over which the special train
sped. Many of the engine drivers felt a
keen disappointment that they were not
permitted to let out the Iron monsters
which were hitched to the train in its trip
across the country. It would have been
mere child's play for some of these rein
deers to have added many miles an hour
to the schedule which was maintained.
In spite of the way that the engines
were held back, the time from Yokohama

Our grandmothers knew this whan they

Charles Norrls, up stairs of 1715'St. Mary's
avenue, attempted his life Saturday after
noon by drinking chloroform after brooding
several days over the humiliation of the
arrest of his wife, Sadie Norrls, at a dance
at Creighton hall last Thursday evening.
Norrls was attended by Dr. Hirschmnnn
and Police Surgeon Morsman, who arrived
In time "to apply effective antidotes. He
will recover.
Mrs. Norrls and her mother rent rooms
at the number mentioned. Norrls was
yardmaster at a South Omaha cooper shop
for two years, quitting his position a week
ago. Last Thursday Mrs. Norris attended
dance at Creighton hall, where she met
Miss Amy Canfleld, who lived at the Nor
ris apartments and who, according to the
Norris woman's story, told the roomers
Btorles about Mrs. Norrls. When the latter
met the Canfleld woman at the dance she
referred to the alleged slander, which waa
resented by Miss Canfleld with a slap.
Officer Wooldrldge, who waa on duty at
tha dance, put the women out of the hall.
and then the women renewed the trouble
on tha street, both being arrested by the
officer for disturbing the peace by fighting.
Mrs. Norrls furnished a cash bond of 19,
while Miss Canfleld gave 12 for her ap
pearance, tout both bonds were forfeited in
court Saturday morning as tho parties did
not appear for trial.

her arrest was followed with trouble be

Root, and other officials of the War de

fusal to act, Dr. Morris said, the presi
dent was the only person left to whom
such an appeal could be made. What he I
desired, he added, was a vindication of the
charges tiled by his brother-in-law rather
than a reinstatement.
Acting on the advice of friends, it Is
probable that Dr. Morris will address a
letter to the president urging him to In
vestigate not only the charges against him,
hut also certain officers of the War de
partment who are alleged to have per
mitted themselves to be improperly Influ
enced In his case.
"I do not desire a reinstatement to my
position," he said, "but I do want these
charges looked Into. They are unjust and
"According to my present determination
I feel that so far as the treatment of
Mrs. Morris is concerned I will take no
action, believing that the sympathetic let
ters and telegrams which have been re
ceived from friends an strangers from
all parts of the country, as well as the
attitude of many newspapers on the sub
ject, have accomplished more than could
be done If a protest were to be made to
the president."
Reply by Mr. Hall.
Representative J. A. T. Hull of Iowa,
whoso sister, Mrs. Minor Morris, was
ejected from the White House on Thursday,
made a statement today concerning his
troubles with Mrs. Morris. At the time
Mrs. Morris was removed from the White
House she was endeavoring to see President
Roosevelt that she might have her husband
reinstated as a clerk in the War depart
ment, and in Interviews she nnd her hus
band have charged that Mr. Hull was re
sponsible for Dr. Morris' removal. The
statement opens:
The deplorable events of the past two
days seem to render it necessary for me to
make a statement. In the beginning I de
sire to bespeak the kindly consideration of
the public lor the members of my family
prominently connected with the unfortunate
atTair. 1 cannot believe the public specially
Inteiwsled in the domestic difficulties of
anyone and greatly deplore the necessity
for making any statement whatever. 1 cer
tainly would not say or do anything which
would unnecessarily reflect on my sister and
ask those who may read what I have to say
to cast the mantle of charity over all of us.
The trouble began on the death of my
father and lias been continuous since. It is
charged that I violated the provisions of
his will. That I failed to file a codicil to
tho will. And I understand it. is further
charged that I forged part of the will.
These are very serious charges, and If true
1 would not be entitled to even associate
with decent people. This charge was made
at first in January, 11X12, and I will take
the matter up In the order In which It has
come Into my life.
My father left mo executor of the estste
without bonds. He gave me envelopes pur
porting to be, first. Ills will; second, a cod
icil thereto, executed more than a year after
the first paper was placed in my hands. On
the deatn or my father I forwarded the
same lo the probate Judge at Pueblo, Colo.

posed both were properly filed. My sister

breakings have all been In neighborhoods
which are not, as a rule, thoroughly po

period. The greatest loser Saturday nUht
was Henry W. Clark, who lives at Wirt

house, taking several articles of jewelry, the
total value of which probably amounts to
$50. Officer Uinn went to the house as soon
as the robbery was reported and secured a
list of the goods stolen, but could not find
any trace of the men.
Another victim was C. D. Van Court, 1'2

from him wrote to the probate Judge direct.
The statement then reproduces letters
from Horton Pope, the judge, saying the
codicil was found in a separate envelope
and had been overlooked. It also includes
a sworn statement from the deputy clerk
of Pueblo county, Colorado, which shows
that Mr. Hull properly discharged his duty
as executor. The statement then continues:
Even this did not stop the controversy.
My brother, M. A. Hull, and his wife,
cared for my father for more than two
years. It was understood by all of the
children that whatever father left should
go to my brother for this care. Knowing
how small would be his compensation, I
contributed an equal amount for my
father's support. I am not eniitled to any
credit for this, and only mention it as an
explanation of the rhurge filed. He pre
sented his claim, charging only 15 a week
for support during the time lie cared for
father. Afterwards ho reduced the amount
to $10 per week. The court allowed the
full amount, after It was contested for
two years by Mrs. Morris. I did not go to
Pueblo and used no effort whatever to
influence the court, except the bare state
ment of the facts under oath, and the
court did not sustain Mrs. Morris.

Old Sores that refuse to heal are a constant III- UlsMJl II
menace to health. They sap the vitality and undermine the constitution by
draining the system of its very life fluids, and those afflicted with one of
these ulcers grow despondent and almost desperate as one treatment after '
asother fails. They patiently apply salves, washes, plasters, etc., but in
f pite of all these the sore refuses to heal and eats deeper into the surround
ing flesh, destroying the tissues and prowing to be a festering, inflamed and
angry mass. The source of the trouble is in the blood. This vital fluid ii
filled with impurities and poisons which are constantly being discharged
into the sore or ulcer, making it impossible for the place to heal. It will not
do to depend on external applications for a cure, because they do not reach
the real cause, and valuable time is lost experimenting with such treatment;
the most they can do is keep the ulcer clean. Any sore that will not heal is
dangerous, for the reason that it may have the deadly germs of Cancer behind
it. A cure can be brought about only through a remedy that can change the
quality of the blood, and this is what S. S. S. does. It goes to the very
bottom of the trouble, drives out the poisons and germs with which it is
tilled, ana purines and builds up the entire cir
culation. By the use of S. S. S. the sore is
supplied with new, rich blood which corrects
tbe trouble, soon stops the discharge, and allows
the place to heal naturally and permanently.
