The voter of Omaha will be called upon
April t to nominate three complete mu
nicipal tickets for the republican, democrat
and socialist partlee. Five general city
offlcea are to be voted upon and twelve
councllrnanle poaltlona, making- for all three
ticket fifty-one places t be filed, for a
further end fin el reduction to nineteen on
election day. For the fifty-one places ITS
persona presept themselves, vastly more
than ever submitted themselves as candi
dates for municipal nominations In the
history of Omaha. Whatever may be the
defects of the Doit primary law Its weak
ness does not lie In producing numbers of
candidates, it Is appanenU
Analysis of the figures shows bow much
more highly a republican nomination is
prised that a democratic nomination. Out
of the 171 names filed lis are to go on the
republican ballot, only twenty-atine on
the' democratic ballot and but twenty-four
on the socialist ticket. The rebublicans
hare twenty aspirants for the general city
offices, or those of mayor, city clerk, at-
. torney. comptroller and building inspector;
the democrats but right and the socialists
the same number. For rouncilmen the re
publicans have ninety-nine in the field, the
democrats but twenty-one and the social
ists only eighteen. Jim Dahlraan will have
, walkaway with the democratic nomina
tion for mayor, and C. H. WitnrreH a' aimi--

Patrick F. Ford, republican councilmanic
candidate from the Third ward, has caused
consternation among his twelve opponents
by announcing on his campaign cards that
of them all he la the only "resident prop
erty owner" In the Third. Most of the
others own lots In other wards, but the
Third has long been scarce of resident
freeholders, owing to the fact that It Is
composed almost entirely of business prop
erty. Ford, incidentally, is a man with a
history. . He Is the son of the late Fat
Ford, for years a leading democratic
politician of the city and at one time
member of the council. Young Pat a long
time ago was arrested and convicted for a
robbery in Omaha. He, was sentenced to
the penitentiary for a long term of years,
but en the eve of being taken to the
state institution escaped and was never
cantured. The escape was made through
the folly of hie guards In permitting him
to make a visit to relatives. Nothing more
vas heard from Ford In Omaha until the
Spanish-American war. Then It became
-cnovrn that he was one of the survivors of
the blowing up of the Maine at Havana.
Later he was one of a small party that
maneuvered a dangerous cable cutting deed
in Cuba and later still distinguished him
self in the Philippines. In short, he came
home laden with medals and honors and
was pardoned by the grace of Governor
Holeomb. Since then Ford has lived
auletly In Omaha. He is a young man of
good appearance and address. One of the
priced adornments of the mayor's office it
a device on the X'nited Butes flag dose in
silken colors, which Ford sent to the ex
ecutlv from Japan..
Omahans who have followed city hall af
fairs In past years are amused at the
spectacle of W. A. Saunders oh the same
platform with E. A. Benson, when the
latter declaimed against the outrage done
the cltlsena of Omaha in the loose special
tax legislation, which resulted in CCIO.OQO
in assessments for special improvements
being declared void by the courts and
thrown back on the city as a whole to pa;
for, notwithstanding the fact that directly
benefited property owners petitioned for the
improvements and enjoyed all the Ad
vantages of the same. The juxtaposition
of Saunders to the reform mayoralty candi
date has its bit of irony because Saunders
happened to be a member of the city coun
cil during the years that the bulk of the
Invalid special assessments were made.
Nothing like the number of mistakes and
careless work has prevailed in the council
manic body before or since with reference
to special taxes. ,
Another thing "about Saunders In con
nection with special taxes that has not
escaped notice at the city hall. Is the fact
he has been one of the most active lawyers
In working up cases to have the taxes de
For a long time this practice has yielded
a highlit lucrative Income to certain law
yers, who devoted days to scrutinizing tbe
records in the hope of finding technical
errors In the proceedings. Once the mis
takes are discovered immediate steps are
taken to Inform property owners interested
and ta solicit a resistance of the taxes in
the courts upon the representation that the
litigation will be much cheaper than pay
ing the taxes.
One of the Fontanelle councilmatiio candi
dates. Frank Crawford of the Eleventh
ward, is one ef these attorneys.
At the city hall both Saunders and Craw,
ford are known among the most active of
the special tax Inquisitors. When tha
council attempted to make reassessments
to replace taxes declared void Jaet month
Saunders, In behalf of a large number of
clients, protested long and loud to the
proceeding, which, nevertheless, was car
ried out in accordance with the desires cf
tbe city legal department.
A merry little bit of warfare lias brokea
out among; the candidates for republican
city committeemen from the First precinct
"of the Fifth ward, where three filed for
tbe place. One of them. G. P. Brown, has
filed a protest with City Clerk El bo urn
against the candidacy of A. H. Donecken,
better known aa "Gus" Donecken. alleging
that Donecken is not a resident of the pre
cipct. The third candidate there la Fred
Rockenhouse. The city clerk will notify
Chairman Cowell of the city committee and
have a hearing en tbe dispute In hia efflo
at S o'clock Thursday, at which Mr. Broan
will be called upon to present evidence
why Mr. roneckene name should not go

Secretary Merchant's report says at the
late of gain made In the last year Omaha
soon will occupy a place near the top at a
primary grain market, but he deprecates
tba failure to draw largely from northern
Kansas and southern Nebraska. He sayt
vast Inroads must be made In these sec

successful campelitor of others.

tenance of the original basis of rates put in
force Junce 1 lt, declaring it Insured
equilibrium of rates and a growth In the
Omaha market. He also favored through
rates to Liverpool and other foreign
Seed of strssg Bayers.
The report mentions the cash market as
having made good progress, but not as
much as It should have made, owing to the
need of strong buyers, and the fact that
some heavy dealers, encouraged by through
lines, are bidding strongly for grain in the
country. The option business has suffered
from a lack of speculative spirit, the
dealers devoting their energy to the up
building of the cash market.
The statement Is made that the exchange
is doing something never done before by
another exchange, running its business
without assessing its members, the reason
being that inspection and weighing are
under the Jurisdiction of the exchange, and
pay revenue to it. There are 162 members
and the limit is 20. Tbe exchange has no
annual dues and thus far has paid all
expennes without drawing on the original
capital. Fur the. who are speculating as
to what will be the value of a seat in the
exchange, Mr. Merchant allows merely this
statement: "Memberships are selling, ap
proximately, in Chicago at $3,200; in Min
neapolis at $4,700; in Duluth at $2,600; in
St. Louis at $150: In Kansas City at $3,100."
In Mr. Merchant's opinion the Omaha grain
market Is worth $H.KJ0.ftii a year to the
producers of Nebraska, first by enhancing
the value of grain with near market and
elevator facilities; second, by reduction of
freight rates on grain; and third, by se
curing through rates from Omaha to foreign
