Among the In xtructtons given to the judges Is a blank form for them to nil out with the unofficial returns. These will be sent In as soon as possible after the polls are closed. With good work the entire ticket should be re ported at 7:15. It has been arranged with Mr. Carter to leave a aet of instructions with the telephone operators that will ma terially assist In hastening the work: The public will be excluded from the office of the oierk, but they will be Invited to make ue of the council chamber, where prompt announcements will be made of the returns hs they come In. ' This will give the crowd a chance and will not Interfere with the work of tha tabulators In 4he clerk's office, Only t hope who' "have assigned duties will lw allowed In the latter office.. The public wilt greatly assist the work of the clerk by refraining from using his telephone until 7:30. There are three other "phones In the building which are just aa easy of corse and a man will be at each to answer ca.il. The numbers open to those asking tiuestions are il 90 and MO. After 7 o'clock tientral, wljl ask this question of thoae who call No. .194, "Do you wish to send In elec tion returns?" If the answer Is yea the ' connection will be made; If no, the con nection will be diverted to one of the other three numbers. This will keep the wire to the clerk's office open for the ahort fif teen minutes necessary to get all the re turns In. It Is expected that the council chamber will be rilled to the limit at 7 o'clock, when the polls close. wctratth Makes Used Haa. .

A' folr-slaed hole was found In the lid In South Omaha yesterday aftrrnoon. and as a result Barney Cogan, who has a sa loon at 2700 Q street, was landed In Jail. Fifteen men were found In the saloon, several of them drinking at the bar. The door waa open both at the back and the aide. Several times formerly the police have been trying, to see what was being done. No attempt waa made at conceal ment In this case, and for that reason It may be thought that an attempt was being made to aee what the attitude of the Board of Fire and Police Commission ers waa concerning the question of Sun day opening since the presentation of the recent petition. After going to Jail Cogan secured bonds for his appearance. It waa stated at the Jnil that complaints would be filed this morning charging Cogan with a breach of the Slocumb law. laaram l,nss Ha ad. Ed Ingram of Omaha, who works at the Lucerne Food Products company's mills, met with a serious accident Saturday morning. While working at the mill near Tweaty. ninth and B streets he accidentally got his hand In one of the feed cutters. Which clipped It completely off. He was taken to the South Omaha hospital, Where his wound waa dressed. He suffered con siderable pain yesterday, but Is reported doing batter today. Balka Holdup Mam. Edward Trapp, a earpenter living" at Thirty-first and K streets, visited the Jail last night and reported that aa he was going home last Saturday night In the vicinity Of Thirteenth and U he was ac costed by two men with revolver who made a demund on him for his cash. He said he had no gun In his pocket, but made a strong bluft of drawing one, but In reality drew only a jrnrpenter's rule. It worked. In the dark It could not be distinguished. The men begged to be al lowed to back, away In the dark. He thought It better to let them go. They had been hiding behind a ruined house at that point, and around IV they disappeared. Trapp then proceeded to his home, and as he had lost no money did not report the case until last night. The officers were sorry that he did not send In an alarm at once. Captain Shields and Officer Turfi qulst agreed that It was just such good na ture on the part of many people which keeps many criminals from being brought to justice. Too many people will not re port these holdup Jobs, unless they lose considerable sum of money or get wounded. v Maa-le City Gossip.

Minneapolis won the second of the ex hibition series from Omaha Sunday at Vinton Street park by the score of 6 to 1 In a game filled wih Interesting features. Three double plays were made, two by the Millers and one by the Omaha colts, and several other fast plays were pulled off which kept the spectators keyed up so all stayed to the finish In spite of the cold east wind which made the day aome- what disagreeable even to the most hard-, ened fan. The Millers lined up In about the same positions as . Saturday, while Rourke changed his men around a trifle owing to the absence of Joe Dolan. Dolan was hit on the wrist by a pitched ball Saturday, and while his wrist Is badly swollen, he will be back in the game In a day or two. Welch was sent to first and Fenlon was given a try In the middle garden, where he showed considerablo speed, taking "two difficult chances. EacfT team used three pitchers, Fa send ing In McNecley, Banders and Koukallk In the order named, and Kelley pitching Orrlng, Welsenberg and Brittsen, each working three Innings. For' the home team McNecley And Koukallk pitched good ball, the latter holding the Millers without a hit, but Sanders had a bad Inning and waa touched up for four hits in one Inning, with a total of four runs. Sanders always has been backward In the spring In get ting Into condition. x Minneapolis made the first run In the third and Omaha evened up In the same inning. Bassey lilt for a double to third on Carter'a single and scored on Free man's error. The Millers made four in the tilth In ning. Sander had gone through the fourth Inning by being touched up for only .one double, but In the fifth the bombardment began. Sullivan started the fun for Min neapolis by making a new kind of bunt. He started on the run and threw his bat at the ball at the same time and scored on Graham's double to right field. Fox singled and stole second and both he and Graham scored on Welch's error. Persons was given a life by Runklcs' error and scored on Yeager'a double. No game will be played today, but the Millers will be back for a game Tuesday. The score: MINNEAPOLIS. AB. ti. II. PO.

CAMPAIGNS ARE NOW TOO FREQUENT Provision Uxtendtnav the Terms of Representatives to loir Year Will Make Bill Topolar In the Senate. (From a Staff Correspondent.) WASHINGTON, D. C, April 1. (Special.) Judge George Norrls. who represents the Fifth Nebraska district in congrese, has broken Into the Inner circles of house legis lation. He has accomplished this by a steadfast desire to be right and his straight forwardness and his ability have given him a prestige In a body which, although made up of 3S6 members, together with the dele gates from the territories, is controlled by a few Individuals. Recently Judge Norrls had the honor paid him of having his bill providing for tho election of senators by the people and the extension of the term of representatives from two to four years, made the basis for a committee bill. Which has been re ported favorably from the committee on election of president, vii'e president 'and members of congrca and Is now on tho house calendar. Norrls Defends His BUI. In discussing an editorial recently pub lished In The Bee, taking exception to Judge Norria' bill, because of the extended term given to representatives In congress, he made the following statement: Yes. I have read the recent editorial In The Daily Uee in regard to my proposition now before congress to amend the constitu tion by providing for the election of sena tors by the people andjyr the election of members of the hou.-- fi representatives lor a term or jour yenrn( In my Judgment, tha claim made in the" editorial that the provision lengthening the term of ofilce of members of the house will lessen the chances In the senate of passage of the provision to elect senatots by the direct vote of the people, la not well founded. U Is quite evident to me- that the eltect will be exactly the reverse. The house has sev eral times passed resolutions providing for an amendment of the constitution in the matter of the election of senators uy me vote of the people, and in every instance the provision has failed to pass the senate by the constitutional majority. There are senators wno inina ihhi any proposition to amend the constitution af fecting the senate ought to originate. In the senate and not In the house, and there aeems to be a prejudice in the senate against any such propoaltion that cornea from the house, tor years mere un-n a sort of understanding that any law af fecting only one branch of congress shoulu orlKlnate In such branch. And there has alao been an understanding that any propo sition so originating wouia receive uivoi nble consideration In the other branch. I nder this understanding, at proposition to amend the constitution affecting the term of ofilce of members of the house, having originated In the house'and passed by the house, would be looked upon with more favor in the senate. On this aecount, 11 was deemed best to couple the two propo sitions with the Idea that a proiKiscd amendment emliodylng both pmpotntiona would doubtless ba looked upon with greater favor in the senate. Then again, an attempt has several times been made, as I have said, to pass the proposition relating to tha election of senators, -and In each Instance such proposition has met wltn failure. What proof have we that the sen ate has experienced a change of heart anil that auch proposition, standing alone, would receive favorable consideration In the sen ate? The most Important part of my propo sition is the part relating tn 11el?,!" of senatora by the people, and while I be lieve that more good would result, to tne country from the adoption of that portl'in . . C. .u.r. ..intinir to the term of otllce of members of the house. yetyI am most heartily In favor of the latter proposition. I'nder the present law members of the house are elected In November, and unless there Is a special session of congress called by the rresldent, they do not actually begin their official duties until a year frotn the following December. Their term of office la thus practically half gone before the commence the active duties pertaining to their office. Before they ai fairly star ed In the work for which they were elected they are plunged Into another campalgn a campaign for venomlnatlon. tfhey wish "o be returned. Their attention Is thus di verted from their work-the work In which they Hhould be engaged, and much of theli time is devoted to securing a nomination and a re-election. This is not only unta r to the congressman, but is likewise unfair to the pe"Pl ha represents. Ton Many Elections. In my Judgment we have too many elec tions We scarcely get out of one cam paign before another 1 gin. -We all know that campaigns, at least so far as tney affect members of congress and national questions, always have a depressing in fluence on business and the prosperity of the country generally. People contemplat ing an enlargement of their business or the investment of money in new I enter prises alwavs hesitate If a national elec tion Is approaching until the result is known. There la always a tightening along financial lines and neeessarlly along ail lines of business Just pr.or to a milLonal election. . ... It Is unfair to the members of Ihe house that thev should be put to the expense of being continually in a raiuiiMlgii. Besides taking their time and attention from thlr ottliia-l ilutt'?a the expense connected with a campaign make an inroad upon his sal ary until it has heeome common knowledge that only the wealthy can afford lo retain a seat til our national legislature. I think It would be an improvement if we eleeted all of our state and county officers fur a term of tour years. KaTect of Krennenl f nninnlgna. It Is not only the officeholders who s'muld be relieved from rws frequent campaigns, but tho people themselves are tired of this continual pollt.cal quarrel and strife. In my Judgment tills has a tendency to cauae them to loan interest In pullltc matters. They become tired of this julitical strife and -are apt to become riist-allahed and pay no attention to the piiinanea and con ventiona the foundation of our system. I'nder our present system of holding an half aa many opponun.tie. ror mm to piy his Hade In our counties In Nebraska we elect a clerk of the court for four years and a county elerk for two years.

Many thousands, yes, millions, of dollars would be sAved In our own state if our terms of offW were four year Instead of two years. While it 1h very probable that most of this tnoney remains In the state, there Is a large per cent of It that la scnt for Il legal and undesirable purposed, and the spending of money In this way cannot help but have a depressing and Injurious effect. The tendency nil over the l'nlted States has been to lengthen the term of office of the public servants to four years. If my proposed amendments were adopted In my Judgment it would not be long be fore Ihe state constitutions Slid stnle lawn would be amended to conform with this provision, and instead of having a con tinual political turmoil to the Injury of tho work of the offliiala and the dlcgust of the people we would have some time for work, peace and quietude, and some time to cultivate the goodrcllowship of our neighbor who happens to be of an opposite potmrai uiiin. It is a well known fact that a member of congress hardly becomes acquainted with the routine of his office during his first term of two years, and that in order to hnve any material effect upon legisla tion he must have served severs! years. In a large body like the house most of the actual work Is necessarily accomplished In the committee rooms, or at lenst tho work Is outlined In the committees. To obtain a position of advantage on an im portant committee requires years of serv ice and no slate or section of the country can eTPect to have any material Influence upon national legislation until their repre sentative has served In the work for a long time.
