The o,,di I unit v fur candidates tit gnt on
the municipal primary ballot will end at
noon Fitturdav. The Dodge law requires
nil fllimrn to be nrnd"! at least thirty days
beforo' the primaries, which this year will
be held April i. City Clerk Blhourn, to
whom, the npplt"ationa are made, announces
I.e. will close his offlc-s at noon aa usual
and a provided bit the ordinance. No
(treat rush of aspirants Is anticipated on
the Inst, day or In the Interim, except to
complete tkkvts for committee places. It
Is thought that practically all the entries
fc the Ma- offices are In with not to ex
ceed a dozen" possible new filings.
City Clerk Klhourn gives out that candi
dates who have filed for places on the pri
mary ballot will not be allowed to wlth
, draw after the filings clone Saturday, t'p
to that time any one who wants to may
pull out. h fays, but after Baturduy lie
will permit nothing of th kind. He holds
thnt In the absence of provision In the law
for withdrawal in gMwl faith any conces
sions he may make In tlw-tnatter are purely
Ktatultaus and under' Ms control. Assist
ant City Attorney1 H fdmun takes precisely
the oppoalte view. He says any candidate
can withdraw up to the time the ballots
are printed, any ruling by the clerk not
withstanding. Willi the question still open as to whether
or not u man needs be registered last fall
to pa Ipatc the municipal primaries
still oj,tn, a nHw complication has arisen
with reference to the Iodge primary law.
This time the vexation concerns the up
pnlntmcnt of judges and clerks for the
primary election. It has been generally
accepted that the board, composed of
three judges and two clerks for every pre
cinct, would be nAiited by the council about
the middle of March, but lawyers whj
have been st inlying the supremo court de
cision on the law pay this Is decidedly in
doubt. The llodEe law provided that the
supervisors of registration act as Judges J
and clerks Ht the primary election, which
the law said would be held simultaneously
with the first of four registration days.
The supreme court knocked out tin:
authority for the registrars constituting
the primary election board, so it la con
tended. On the other hand the courfcon
tended that the primary was an election
and just as much so In a legal way as
the general election for placing candidate
In office. Following this reasoning the
question is "asked whether the general
election boards named lust fall are not
llto proper boards to have charge nnl
control of the spring primaries. The law
says these boards shall serve for a yea
after appointment and officiate at all elec
tions, general and special held within that
time. If this view shall be accepted it
Cleans the election boards of last November
vill run the April primaries. Prominent
lawyers have both the question of tliu
necendty lor registration and the personnel
of the primary election boards under con
sideration. It is probable there will be at least one
more democratic filing for the city attor
neyship and one for the clerkship. With
regard to Hairy K. Hurnann who has tiled
for th first, mimed place.' astute demo
cratic politicians do not believe be has
the strength to stand even a fighting
ha nee against a republican nominee. These
same leaders contend that Albert SJobetg
Is not Hble, physically, to make a cam
paign for city clerk, and that his presence
on the ticket would mean only so much
dead weight. The democrats have had a
great deal of trouble getting candidates
to come out for every office, and the jr
suit will be v!!- mild and unexciting
primaries so fHr aa the party Is con
cerned. Jim Uahlman Mill have no oppo
sition for the mayoralty nomination. C.
t). Lobeck none tor comptroller and
Charles Withuell none for building In
spector. Probable contests for city clerk
and attorney have been outlined. In the
wards a slate fixed up by democratic lead
ers will have everything Its own way and
no contests In some places.
An Interesting sldelieht un tne personal
and political characteristics of W. J.
Broatch has been revealed by a conversa
tion a city employe bad with one of the
representatives of a large Iron firm the
other day. Ilroatch, up to a few weeks
ago, was engaged In the Iron und heavy
hardware business, an occupation he hud
followed for years. The other house re
ferred to has been a leading competitor.
According to the statement of the city
employe, the representative stated In sub
stance: "Our house formerly did a considerablt
business with the Omaha breweries in
selling them what is known as hiJbp Iron
that Is, material for 'the hoops that go

business and Broatch got it, We know
he charged the brewers much more than
we could ask, and for a certainty we
know one carload of material was shipped
In here which the Broatch firm sold to
the breweries for fl.nm) more than our
pricesand we would have made trn"i by

F. A. Benson ha employed one campaign
method t least which occasioned quite
a bit of amusing embarrassment for a little
while In a certain household In an upper
ward. Benson has hired a lot of boys to
carry his autograph photographs to the
homes of voters. Now. It generally hap
pens that the "lady of the house" Is the one
wNi greets the boy at the door. The boy I
maks this speech, presenting the photo
graph: "Mr. Benson wants you to have
one of his photographs and says If there
are any men folks here who vote ask them
please If they won't vote for him." That
may not Im the way Mr. Benson trained
the boys to talk, and It l not exactly the
way one little fellow did talk. Forgetting
the last part of the speech he exclaimed,
with considerable stammering, as he handed
the photo to the woman who answered his
ring at the door: "Mr. Benson says here
Is that photograph you asked him for and
he er er r, he would like to have one of
Now, It Just so happened that the male
head of that household was at home. He
was sitting in the room where he could
not help but overhear the little chap. The
wife returned to the room where her hus
band aat, holding out the photo to him
and exclaimed, with much dismay, that
she never In her life had asked Mr. Benson
for his photograph.
"The Idea of his asking me for my photo
graph," she Indignantly exclaimed.
"Oh, don't try to get out of It that way
just because I happen to be at home," said
the husband, who bad a sense of humor
about him. "That's all right; I'll go down
and see Mr. Benson about this little mat
ter." Tom Deunison Is very sanguine of
Broutch's success In the mayoralty race
and so expressed himself with emphasis
to a reporter for The Bee In the mayor's
office at the city hall. He seems convinced
the Fontanelle club Is all split up as be
twen Benson and Broatch and contends
that Westberg, Butler, Willis and others
on the Fontanelle club ticket are in reality
for Broatch and are not supporting Benson
at all. He expresses himself as sat lulled
that all the councilman trying for another
term will be with the Broatch contingent
If they are not so now.
"Ill say this," renin iked Denninon: "I
am for Broatch because I believe he Is the
strongest man. There Isn't anything I
can say against Hennlngs, but I don't be
lieve he can get the votes."

SALOON HEARING IS BEGIN
Finally Geta Into Court and is Once
RIGHT OF APPEAL IS QUESTIONED

I. sitter Claims It on 'lironnria
the Board Had Keen
The heating before Judge Kennedy on the
motion for an order to require the fire and
police board to cancel the licenses of cer
tain saloon keepers for alleged violations
of the Sunday closing law took up the
forenoon session of the court Wednesday,
and at noon was continued until Friday
morning at 9:30. Judge Kennedy has an
other case on and he did not care to breaa
Into it any further, and as it will require
all day Thursday to finish that case, it was
agreed to let the saloon matter go over a
day and a half.
The principal question discussed by the
attorneys was whether or not Elmer K.
Thomas had lost his right to appeal, be
cause sixty days has elased lietween the
action of the board and the tiling of the
City Attorney Bieen for the board ccr.i
lended the right of appeal hud been
forfeited. He said no demand had bc-n
made on the board for the transcripts of
the proceedings In the five cases Involved
lu this hearing or they would huve ben
furnished. The only demand, he said, was
for transcripts including the evidence
taken by the board In the 170 cases. To
have furnished these, he said, would have
cost the board 15,112 and transcripts for
the pleadings alone would have cost $121.
As no money is available for this purpose
he did not think the board could be re
quired to furnish the transcripts. Not
withstanding a lack of funds he said if
the demand had been for only a few
transcripts, which might have been fur
nished without extra labor, the demand
would have been compiled with.
Barred by the Board.
To this Mr. Thomas retorted soinewlm
hotly that the lsiard would not even let
Mm look ut the papers without paying for
"Your board is not going to give any
thing out that would injure a saloon
keeper," he said.
Mr. Breen said a mandamus case In
volving the same question was before
Judge Sutton, and he did not think Mr.
Thomas ought to have the right to go
Into other courts to secure the same
Mr. Thomas declared the mandamus case
before Judge Sutton had not been finally
heard because Mr. Breen could not ba
Induced to set a time for the final bearing.
He said the present motion was made
in order to expedite matters and cause
the cancellation of the licenses of saloon
keepers who have recently violated the
law, pending an appeal to the supreme
court. This, he said, would take a year
or two and would be of no value because
the licenses would expire before a de
cision could be had.
He contended the board had been remiss
ill not furnishing him with transcripts
and for this reason he had not lost tha
right of appeal. He charged the board,
the chief of police and tne niayor with
being determined to prevent the enforce
ment nr the Sloeunib law and said a few !
Sundays ago he had seen four men come
out of the rear door of Joe Waclitler'a
saloon while a policeman guarded the front
door. Mr. Thomas went on the witness
stand and offered testimony In support
of his contention that he had done all he
could do to secure the transcripts for hn

John L. Webster has returned from u trip

of the legislature ot Pennsylvania, which
appropriated $ltl,0au to pay the expenses of

"I regard the divorce law congress as a
most important meeting and one that is
likely to initiate developments of a far
reaching nature. While the congress was
able to agree tipon certain broad und gen

placing of restraint upon the granting of
divorces and diminishing the number of
legal separations between husband and
wife, yet It Is evident there will be sharp
and severe differences of opinion when it
comes to fixing the precise laws to be
recommended to the various states.
"The chief general principles enunciated
may be summed up as follows:
"Against what are termed migratory di
vorces and the requirement of two years'
residence In a state as a requirement to
gain a divorce.
"Prohibition of the graining of secret
divorces by requiring all proceedings to ne

other states are not recognized unless
