seventy-three examined twenty-two were
excused oa peremptory challenges and
thirty-nine, over half of them, for cause.
The principal cause of Ineligibility was
opposition to the death penalty. A number
of those who had no prejudice against
capital punishment already had formed
opinions as to the guilt or innocence of the
defendant. Many of them were from South
Omaha and were acquainted with one or
more of the defendants. Five members
of the Jury are from South Omaha and the
same number from Omaha.
Whether or not the Jurors .will be locked
up during the trial has not been decided
yet. Judge Sutton dismissed them yester
day with an admonition not to talk or read
about the case and this morning will listen
to arguments for and against the Isolation
of the Jurors. He admonished them In
case any person Insisted on talking to them
to report the matter to the court.
The first witness to be called for the
state will be Raymond Nelson, who alone
was with O'Hcarn In the saloon when the
shooting occurred, according to his pre
vious statements. He is expected to testify
along the lines of his previous confession.
The defense. It Is believed, will attempt to
lay the blame for the shooting on Nelson's
shoulders and will seek in this way to
avoid the death penalty.

CLARK TRIES TO ESCAPE

LINCOLN, March 13.-(Speclal Telegram.)
Clark, one of the negroes who was held
here for several days to keep a mob from
South Omaha from getting him, made a
desperate effort to escape from Jail last
night and nraa almost successful. Clark
was In the women's ward and had dug out
almost enough brick to allow the passage
of his body.
The hole he made opened Into a vacant
room from which it would have been an
easy matter for him to get out. The hole
was discovered after the prisoners had
been started to Omaha.
Jeeaon Xot a Delegate.
Judge Paul Jessen of Nebraska City Is
not a candidate for governor at this time.
He may be a candidate later, however, and
his announcement may be made within the
next week or two.
Judge Jessen and William Hayward were
here this morning from Otoe county and
vlBtted the various state officers and dis
cussed politics in general. When asked
whether he would be a candidate for gov
ernor. Judge Jessen replied:
"I am not a candidate now."
And the manner In which he made the
reply Implied that later he might be a can
Down In Otoe and Cass counties it Is a
tossup which Is the most popular. Senator
George Sheldon or Paul Jessen, and as Sen
ator Sheldon Is down In Mississippi looking
over his business there, It Is probable no an
nouncement will be made by Judge Jessen
or by friends of Sheldon until the latter re
turns home. This will be within a week or
two. Sheldon and Jessen are Intimate, life
long friends and neighbors, and whichever
one decides to make the race he will in all
probability receive the support of the other.
Judge Hayward, who accompanied Judge
Jessen to Lincoln, said:
While I have no authority to speak for
Judge Jessen. I believe if he Intends to
be a candidate no announcement will be
made Inside of a week. Down in Otoe
county we have been quiet In politics and
no discussion has been indulged in at all.
We are not making any governors or
United States senators, but when the time
comes I suppose we will do something."
When asked concerning the reported op
position to Congressman Pollard. Mr. Hay
"I have heard of no opposition to Mr.
Pollard except what little I have seen In
the newspapers. As far as I am con
cerned he will have no opposition. I can
not speak for the county or for the 'dis
trict, as I am attending to my law prac
tice now and have too little time to pay
any attention to politics."
Nebraska People Awake.
Representative Junkln, author of the
Junkln anti-trust law which the supreme
court recently held was unconstitutional,
was a Lincoln visitor today en routs to
St. Joseph, where he was going With a
shipment of cattle. .
"I am not a candidate for re-election,"
said Mr. Junkln. "I have held the office
for two terms and that is enough. Who
we will send up this fall I do not know
at this time, but I Judge there will be
plenty of good timber from which to Select
the man.' t believe the next legislature
will enact a freight rate bill, a primary
election law and an anti-pass law. I think
there is little doubt of that. The people
are really aroused and they Intend to
elect a legislature that will carry out
the wishes of the people rather than the
orders of the corporations. Nebraska has
been asleep for twenty years and the peo
ple have allowed the railroads to get ab
solute control of the affairs of state, but
that time Is over now and the people are
wide awake. I believe the sentiment
against corporation control is deep-seated
and will result In the enactment of the
laws I have enumerated.
"Were I to belong to the next legislature
I should vote for a direct primary law,
though I opposed it last winter. Out In my
country we do not need such a law, but
In the eastern part of the state I guess It
Is badly needed. To help out the east
end of the state I should advocate the en
actment of a direct primary law."
Mr. Junkln expressed his satisfaction at
the supreme court decision holding his law

Something over 100 members of the Young
Women's Christian association met In the
association rooms Tuesday evening and
completed arrangements for the building
fund campaign for 1126,000. which will open
Thursday morning of this week and will
continue one month. Mrs. W. P. Harford
presided and the meeting opened with the
singing of "Onward Christian Soldiers"
with an enthusiasm that permeated the
entire session. The campaign will open at
8:45 Thursday morning with a prayer serv
ice In the association rooms, at which all
the workers and all Interested are Invited
to be present.
Mrs. Emma F. Byers, general secretary,
explained further some of the details of
the proposed canvass. As nearly 500 mem
berships will expire this month It has been
decided to furnish the soliciting "tens"
with lists of these i expirations and give
them the credit for all renewals secured
and for new members, the money to be ap
plied on the building fund.
All subscriptions over 16 may be paid In
three payments. July 15. 1906. January 15,
1907 and July 16, 1907. Sums under $6 are
desired In one payment where possible.
Mrs. Harford has announced that the cam
paign would begin with practically no largo
subscriptions, although, several pledges
of several hundred dollars have been made.
Headquarters have been fitted up In one
of the rear parlors of the association rooms
In the Paxton block, where a bookkeeper
and secretary are Installed to attend to
the building business.
The big clock which told the progress of
the Young Mkm's Christian association
campaign last year and which has since
served In other cities. Is expected here
from Kansas City the last of the week and
will be erected some place down town.
Miss Mary Dunn, at the head of the
Weighty Professional Endorsements.
That the several American medicinal
roots, the concentrated glyceric extracts
of which make up Dr. Pierce'g Golden
Medical Discovery, have the strongest
kind of endorsement by scores of lead
ins medical writers of all the several
school of practice, a brief glance at
the standard works on Materia Medica
will show. Of Golden Seal root, which
is one of the prominent ingredients of
Golden Medical Discovery Dr. Roberts
Bartholow, of Jefferson Medical Col
lege, says: "Very nseful as a stom
achic (stomach) tonic and in atonic
dyspepsia. Cures gastrio (stomach)
catarrh and headaches accompanying
same." He also mentions catarrh of
the gall duct, jaundice and constipa
tion as diseases which the use of
Golden Seal root overcomes; also
catarrh of the intestines, even when
it bas proceeded to ulceration, is
remarkably benefited by Hydrastis
(Golden Seal root).
Dr. Grover Coe. of New York, says:
"Hydrastis (Golden Seal root) exer
cises an especial influence over mu
cous surfaces. Upon the liver it
acts with equal certainty and ef
ficacy. As a cholagogue (liver iovig
orator) it has few equals." Dr. Coe
Also advises it for affections of the
spleen and other abdominal viscera
generally, and for scrofulous and gland
nlax diseases, cutaneous eruptions, in
digestion, debility, chronic diarrhoea,
constipation, also in several affections
necnliar to women, and in all chronic
derangements of the liver; also for
chronic inflammation of bladder, for
which Dr. Coe says "it is one of tho
most reliable- agents of cure."
Prof, nobart A. Hare, M. D., of the
University of Pa., says of Golden Seal
root that it is "of service in chronio
catarrh of the stomach and bowels,
following abase of alcohol, and as a
tonic after malarial fever." He further
eavs, it "haa a distinct anti-malarial
influence. " Also "good in all catarrhal
conditions, as uterine catarrh, leucor
rbcea, etc., and as "a curative agent in
Prof. Laurence Johnson, M. D., of
the Medical Department, University
City of N. Y.. is equally loud in his
praise of Golden Seal root, especially
for its tonic effects in convalescence
from acute diseases and its special
tonic influence upon mucous surfaces
and upon the prll bladder.
Doctors Barton and Tully recom
mended Golden Seal root as a pure
tonic and as an alterative in dis
eased conditions of the mucous mem
branes. Prof. John King, M. D., late of Cin
cinnati, author of the American Dis-
Pensatoky, gives it a prominent place
among medicinal agents, reiterates all
the foregoing writers have said about
it, as does also Prof. John M. ncudder,
M. D., late of Cincinnati. Dr. Send-
der says: "It stimulates the digestive
processes and increases the assimilation
of food. By these means the blood ts
tnricked, the consequent
improvement on the glandular and
nervous systems are natural results."
Dr. Scudder further says, "in relation
to its general effect upon the system,
ther is no median in ute about which
there M luck general unanimity of
OPt num. It is universally regarded as
the tonic, useful ia til debilitated

women that they should not hesitate in
asking for money In this cause as getting

the 'women that there would be plenty of
discouragement, but that tho people of
Omaha will not fall to do their part In this
great need for women.

Soon, Probably Saturday
of This Week.
The corner stone of the new Young Men's
Christian association building at Seven
teenth and Harney streets will be laid In a
few days, probably Saturday of this week.
Owing to the absence of I, W. Carpenter,
president of the association, who went to
Illinois with the body of his father, plans
have not been completed. AS soon as ho
returns the program will be published. An
effort will be mado to get W. E. Sweet of
Denver to lay the corner stone. Mr.
Sweet started the building fund campaign
In Denver,, with a subscription of $25,1)00.
In the corner stone, among other things,
will be placed a list of members of tho
association. The Irregularities and incon
veniences connected with tho vacation of
the old quarters have 'been the cause of
.the lapse of many memberships. The
men can get their names In the corner
stone by registering this week.
