Jim llahlman. Smith Faction
Ed 1. Smith lias wlllidruwn from the
mayoralty race, and mill lh" democrats
are tmable to unite upon the candidacy
it Jim iMhlman. the only active aspirant
now In the ring;. The Bmllh adherents
want a different man. They want a man
who pan represent the antl-corporollon
planks I Mr. Bmith"s platform, but who
will be morn arm-rat than specific on the
Blocumb law proposition. The man they
think they will nominal has not yet been
named In this campaign. The Pahlman
contingent. It I tindt-rstood. keenly dis
appointed not to receive the full strength
of Mr. Smith's sufiport since he has grne
out of the race, but the Smith faction
snems Just as determined aa the others are
disappointed not to let their followers go
astray by Joining Duhlmun. And atlll the
fight Is on.
.To Ms friends Mr. Smith Saturday issued
After very careful consideration I have
reached a definite conclusion that 1 should
not become a candidate for the nomination
for rnayor. In reaching this conclusion 1
am actuated very largely by selilsh mo
tives. To be elected to mat office and ac
complish the things 1 would hope to ac
complish, it I tilled the office, would neces
sarily demand my entire time nnd atten
tion. I do not feel that 1 can possibly
afford to quit my business or neglect It, as
would necessarily have to do If 1 should
be chosen to nil that office.
The only regret I have In the matter la
that It may possibly be some disappoint
ment to those of my friends who have
been so earnest and enthusiastic In my
support. 1 want to take this occasion to
thank you very earnestly for all you have
done and aald In my behalf and assure you
thai the loyal support guaranteed to me by
many of my friends has been worth more
to me than I am able to express.
I fullv realize that this step means the
abandonment on my part of any political
aspirations, but the advice to the shoe
maker to ntlek to bis last wus good advice,
and I have concluded to apply It to myself.
Reference to Mr. Smith statement that
lie cannot afford to make the race, it la
pointed out he has been attorney for the
Updike Grain company for a number ot
years. Recently this firm has greatly In
creased Its business. The report la that In
order to keep Mr. Smith as Its attorney
and out of the mayoralty contest the grain
company raised his yearly allowance to
more than the emoluments of the execu
The news that Mr. Smith would not run
waa forced by a number of democrats who
Interviewed Mr. Smith and insisted that
ha file his primary certificate at once and
give them an opportunity to get out and
do effective campaigning. Backed Into a
corner, the candidate threw up his hands
and said he wanted to null. Saturday a
number of his followers received personal
letters formally announcing the with
drawal. Speculation ns to Smith's successor before
the democratic primaries, and It Is re
garded aa well aa settled that he will have
a, successor, la rather vague and Indefinite.
Aa a matter ot fact. It Is clear no man has
been decided upon by the Jacksonlan club
leaders and the younger element of the
local democracy. Certain Interests are atlll
laboring with James I. English and others
are talking Frank Hansom, but the know
ing ones say the choice will be a new man
Edward Whulen, a venerable socialist,
has filed a certificate for the city clerk
demanding that his name be placed on the
ballot of his party for the position of
"alderman" from the Eighth ward. Pre
sumably Mr. Whulen mean "councilman,"
aa audi things aa "aldermen" are not
known in Omaha. Other filings listed are
William Neckel, councilman Second ward,
republican; George M. Baler, councilman.
Seventh ward, republican; Thomas McGov
ern, councilman Ninth ward, democrat;
8. P. Sorenson, councilman Tenth ward, so
cialist. The patent medicine fixers in the Fon
tanels club are worried about the matter
of a platform. One thing the braves have
always Insisted upon Is a high and mighty
sounding platform. - No campaign since
they organised haa been complete without
one. In this battle they have endorsed
a lot of candldatea and left the platform
business lis over until afterwards. Since
they were endorsed the candidates have
held several meetings and a marked antip
athy to any platform has been developed
among a number of them. These argue
that there Is no necessity for such an en
cumbrance. On the other hand, more
esthetic braves, not on the endorsement

STATKMEST OF FACT.
Royal tnloa Motnal Publishes Fnll
Report of Auditor ot State.
The directors of the Royal I'nlon Mutual
Life Insurance company are practically the
same today as when the company was
organized twenty years ago. They have
been re-elected during all these years, by
the policyholders. When the guaranty
fund of the company was created In 1S97,
It waa found to be Impossible to secure
subscribers to this fund, In any great
amount, outside of those who were Inter
ested In the company, and consequently
the director nearly all became holders
of shares In this fund.
The creation of the fund at the time
was felt to be In the Interest of the com
pany and tho policyholders. The manager
does not believe that those directors who
for so many years were elected by the
policyholders have any less Interest In the
welfare of the company and the policy
holders than In the years of the past, be
cause now they are the possessors of
shares In the guarantee fund.
Regarding tho compensation of executive
officers and directors, the company has
recently adopted the policy of paying a
small compensation for services as mem
bers of the board of directors, and In Im
portant committees, with a view of secur
ing a larger attendance at their meetings
and creating a deeper Interest In the work
at hand. Corporations frequently resort
to the method of paying $10, $15 or (20 to
each member of their board of directors
for attendance at meetings. The board
of directors of this company did not feel
that It was necessary to exclude the sal
aried officers of the company from the
rule of receiving payment for specific
duties which the board of directors and
the Important committees demand, follow
ing the same principle which the state
pursues regarding Its salaried officers, the
governor, secretary of state and others,
who receive a special compensation of SS00
a year to perform the duties coming be
fore the executive council. It will be
noticed In the full page report of the audi
tor of state found In this Issue that the
gross salaries paid to officers Is not criti
cised as being too large.

Little Excitement Engineered by
Rttition of Biuistration Lists.
PROPHESIES OF COLON'ZINQ UNFOUNDED
Police Take the Snmea of a Few Who
Appear splcloae a a They Will
Re lavestlaatea Before
There was little excitement in the poll
ing places yesterday during the revision
of registration. There was no evidence of
a wholesale stuffing of the registration
lists as was prophesied by certain candi
dates within the last week. It was de
clared that twenty or more voters of
Council Bluffs would be repeated tn the
different wards, so that tha candidate
could vote that many votes at the pri
maries. As a precautionary measure a
police officer was stationed in each oolllng
place with orders to watch every voter
and If possible detect and arrest any
party who should attempt any fraudulent
registration. Their orders further were to
take the names and addresses of any
of whom there was a suspicion of lr
regularity. These lists will be turned In
at the city Jail for a thorough Investiga
tion, and If there appears any crookednesi
connected with any of them the parties
will be subjected to Immediate arrest and
prosecution. Considering that this was a
revision of registration and not a general
registration, lists of voters were iulto
extended. It Indicates considerable Inter
est In the primaries and the special elec
tion. One reason for the number who
were listed yesterday Is that the vote test
fall was a long way below the normal
voting strength of South Omaha, so It s
evident that those who failed to vote
last fall will appear for the purpose this
spring. In order to bring the lists up to
the normal the revision will have to add
something over 1.300 names. Besides these
there will be a considerable number
changing precincts and wards.
No arrests were made In connection with
the registration, but the names of several
people went on the police lists for In
vestigation. Arrests may follow as the re
sult of this move. It may be that the
large number of candidates has had the
effect of Interesting people In the pri
maries. Republican Clob Meetlnas.
President TJrbanskl of the Kosciusko Re
publican club, speaking authoritatively on
behalf of his organization, declared yes
terday that the club stood In an attitude
favorable to the Issue of 1250,000 sewer
bonds and that few If any dissenting votes
would be cast among the Polish voters.
The club had another well attended meet
ing last night, at which the various aspects
I of the spring campaign were discussed and
a general social time enjoyed, as has form
erly been the custom of the organisation.
A ticket has been Informally decided upon.
The formal vote will be taken Friday.
The Swedish-Norwegian Republican club
last Thursday night passed a resolution
favorable to the voting of the sewer bonds.
The feeling In the Oood Government club
has long been known as favorable.

Bin Meat Buyer In City.
' 'William Simpson of Liverpool, one of tha
largest transatlantic customers of the
Cudahy Packing company, waa in South
Omaha yesterday. He haa one of the largest
meat distributing establishments in the
world, the ramifications of which . reach
not only English markets, but to the conti
nent as well, notably France. He Is In the
United States touring with his wife and
at the same time combining his business
Interests with sight-seeing. They went
first to Chicago and then came here. It is
possible, since the business has been so
large between the two firms, there may be
.some large contracts agreed upon before
Mr. Simpson's return. M. R. Murphy,
general manager of the Cudahy company,
was In Sioux City yesterday and the office
was unwilling to make a public statement.
Candidate Pulls Oat.
I J. FiUgernld. one of the democratic
candidates for city tax commissioner, re

I to file for the position and was obliged to
visit City Clerk Olllln at hla home last
Saturday evening to have his name put on

Freshmen are Winners.
The freshmen won the honors In the high
school the last month for having made the
best record in attendance and punctuality.
For the last four months the four classes
In the high school have been rivaling each
other In the matter of attendance and punc
tuality. The class making the best record
Is given the privilege of floating its pennant
from the flagstaff over the building, and
last month a new feature waa added,
namely, granting a half-holiday to the suc
cessful class. This contest Is based on both
attendance and punctuality, and the aver
age of both determines the standing of a
class In this matter. The senior had no
tardles. but they had too many absences to
win out against the freshmen, who, though
they had six case of tardiness, by their
per cent of regularity of attendance made
up for this.

was apparent on all sides. Although the

cause of the entertainment, a great many
more were present than ever before, both
of maskers and spectators In the gallery.
On the stage was presented tableaux of

OUR LETTER BOX
GRAND TBLAND, Neb.. Feb. 9-To the
Editor of The Bee: In view of the pub
lications going the rounds of the various
paper In the Vnlted States that all the
coal miners are anticipating going on a
strike on April 1 next, 1 desire to place
before the many readers of your valuable
paper the following propositions, to enable
them to meet this emergency of the possi
bility of shortening of the fuel question,
(specially tn the state of Nebraska; that
Is to say, a process of procuring heat and
light without the means of fuel of any
kind whatsoever. To do so I will quote
from articles published with this object
In view, one from the New Century Path
of Point Loma, Pan Dlcgo, Cal., and one
from the Popular Mechanics' Mugaxlne of
Windmills On Board Ship A novel us
of windmills was made on board the ex
ploring ship Arctic. To save fuel, all of
which must be carried, a set of windmills
were erected when the ship became Ice
bound. The power was employed In com
pressing air. which whs used to run a
fenerator and charpo storage batteries for
Ightlng the ship The system was suffi
ciently successful tn warrant the American
Shin Hnilricr In recommending the adop
tion of windmills on board the lightships, '
which serve as floating lighthouses along
our coast. . , . , .
These vessels are where they are subject
to almost continuous winds from some
direction, and It Is believed would make
enough current, not only to light their
signal lamps, but sufficient to cook with
and possibly warm the ship In winter. The
suggestion Is made that the experiment
be given a thorough trial, not only on the
lightships, but with lighthouses also, which
are usually In exposed locations.
The town of

tion of a' windmill. Of course, it Is a very
large one, the wing area being about l.OOO
square feet. The Ianlsh government, says
the Scientific American, has been experi
menting for several vears In this direction,
and some d finite results have been reached.
It has been found, for Instance, tltat a
powor a flat one; that four wings
make tne most sausiaciory Brrnngeinrni,
that the width of the wing should be about
one-fourth of the length, and that the
greatest width carried In front should be
three times the narrowest width.
In view of the variability of the wind
some method must bo adopted of storing
the energv developed. It may be at once
turned Into electricity and directed Into
stornae batteries. Or It may be made to
compress ulr or to carry water to a height.
A n( these are, of course, expensive at
their Installation. After that the only
points to be considered are the expense of
watching, working and keeping them In
repair. A storage battery, watched by an
r'ettrlcal expert, would seem to be the
There are now on the market, and In
use In many places, a list of electrical
radiators and they sell as cheap as the
ordinary steam or hot water radiator.
Mr. Edison, writing to me on the subject,
states that tho only way to get power
