tnrrd the Ballots.
Maynr Zlmmin mated Saturday morn
tns that a chairman of tha cnviiilng
board he would dnmand an Inventlfta
tion of the ballot box frauds by County
Attorney Hlahaugh and would plate the
tampered ballots and other evidence bo
fore that officer.
The talk of discovering who changed
the votes from Greenlcaf and Ptockham
to Elbourn and from Hennlngs to Broatcli
and prosecuting the suspects Is not so
strong as It was. Apparently no one In
particular Is getting at the facts or turn
ing, up anything new. Matters rest
practically where they were several days
ago. County Attorney Blabaugh Is busy
and there la nothing to show any activity
on the part of his office in the matter.
A broken Tale padlock, similar to those
used to lock the ballot boxes, was found
In one of the boxes during the demo
cratic count. The appearances are that
the staple was severed by the use of a
hammer and chisel. The box was prop
erly locked, although the other was
found broken open during the recount.
Tha finding of the broknn lock Is not
considered especially important or il
luminating. The keys to every box were
tied on tha handle.

SCHOOL BOARD ON NEW TACK
Poller few nnlldtngrs la to Be
Modified In Rome
Members of tha Board of Education are
Investigating school house plans in other
cities and the manner of their preparation
in order to get tdeaa to be used in arrang
ing for the new Vinton school building. A
twelve-room structure, with a high base
ment containing space for four rooms, or
permitting the equivalent of a sixteen
room building, haa been decided upon by
the eommlttea of the whole, which haa
the matter in charge, but further details
are not fixed. The experience of Boston,
St. l4uls and other cities that lead In
school architecture la being canvassed with
an idea of determining what is deemed the
best method of procedure, as well aa the
cheapest consistent with economy.
Efforts are being made toward abandon
ing the old plan in vogue in Omaha of
simply turning over the whole affair to an
architect selected and letting him do tha
reat. Boston haa adopted permanent plans
for school houses of various sixes and
costllnesa and a question has been raised
locally It this plan would not be econom
ical and much mora satisfactory all around

WORK OF THE COUNTY BOARD
Commissioners Authorise Treasurer
Fink to Employ Help to Con
The county commissioners at the meeting
Saturday authorised County Treasurer Fink
to employ the help necessary to effect the
consolidation of hla offlce with that of the
city treasurer. The board decided to meet
Monday at 2 o'clock with the city council
to arrange the details of the consolidation
and discuss the quarters to be provided for
the consolidated offices.
It la held to be desirable to have the
treasurer's and assessor's offices and the
scavenger department close together, and
one proposed plan contemplates the re
moval of these offices to the city hall pro
vided room can be found for them.
The board removed J. M. Buel. night fire
man at the court house, and Tom Clark,
one of the Janitors. Tony Calabria was ap
pointed to Mr. Clark'a place, but Bust's
successor was not named. These are the
first changes made In the force since W. II.
Phoop, the new superintendent, took charge
of tha work.

LOCATING THEDUAL TREASURY
Treasurer Fink Will Have His Main
Offloe In the City Bnlldlns;
County Treasurer Fink has had the floor
space of the treasury department offices
In the. court house and city hall measured
and finds thnt the former exceeds the lat
ter by about 300 square feet, the ratio being
about 2,000 to 1,700. Aside from convenience
of access to the public, the most pressing
question Involved In getting quarters for
the consolidated treasuries is officii room.
Treasurer Fink says the present city treas
ury offices will not bo large enough and
that the scavenger tax section or some
other would have to be separate if a move
was made from the court house. He favors
a location in the city hall and will take
the matter up with the county commis
sioners and the city council. There Is
plenty of unused offlce room in the city
hall on the second floor and above it that
may be utilized.
Most of the office force retained in the
treasury office at the city hall is to be
placed on the payroll permanently to take
care of the additional work. Mr. Kenning
has been Invited to occupy his old private
office until the expiration of his term, but
has not signified his decision whether to
do so or not. Ha has moved out his per

Man and Sixteen-! ear
Plans for the nuptials of James Arm
strong, an old man of 62 years, and Gertie
Myers, aged IS. were delayed when they
applied at County Judge Leslie's office Sat
urday morning for a license, owing to the
failure of the gir! to show she had proper
authority from her parents to wed. She
presented a written permit signed by her
mother, Mrs. Alice May, but it appeared
from questions asked by Judge Teslle that
her father was still living, though divorced
from her mother. Under the circumstances
Judge Ieslle declined to Issue a license
until the father could be heard from. The
pair left, headed for Council Bluffs.
Mr. Armstrong said his Intended bride
and her mother had lived in one of his
houses in South Omaha for some time and
he waa well acquainted with them.

The lid Is chafing at Bennington and the
saloon keepers at that place have been
petitioning the county commissioners to
suspend the Slocumb law as far as that
locality Is concerned and permit the open
ing of saloons on Sunday. The first letter
to Mr. Solomon was signed by John
Borghoff, A. J. Speltman, Frrd Kruse and
T. I Neumeyer. Mr. Solomon replied by
refferring them to the Slocumb law and
a few days ago received another letter
from John Borghoff, saying the Slocumb
law was passed long ago and the people
wore unanimous in the desire for the open
door, which they had enjoyed for a long
time. He says Rev. Mr. Ahrens. the
Lutheran pastor, is In favor of opening the
saloons on Sunday.
The communications were referred by the
board to the county attorney.

nearly every morning, and I wish that
some Improvement could be made. We
xpected a delay In the western mall
during the past week on account or trie

JAMES K. POLK TADL0CICS LIFE ROMANCE
His Daughter Saves Htm from a Jail
Sentence by Infolding the
Details of a Family
"Still he is my father!" And with that
exclamation the young woman clasped the
man In fond embrace, wiped away a few
tears from his cheeks and kissed him aa she
had been wont to do years ago when they
lived together In the old home back In Il
linois. The young woman was Miss Marie
Tndlock, whilo the man was James K. I
Tadlock, once mourned as dead by his
wife and daughter, but who came out as
from the grave of the wide, wide world
Friday afternoon. The little scene oc
curied when the girl was returning from
her work with companions with whom sho
was exchanging girlish confidences. The
face of a man coming toward her sum
moned with tnuglcal quickness memories of
other days. She Immediately recognized In
the man her father, and although choking
with emotion managed to excuse herself
from her companions. Then the little scene,
part of the world's great dally drama, took
Five hours later, as the theatrical pro
gram would have it, Tadlock was arrested
by Patrolman Delehanty on the charge of
drunkenness and disorderly conduct. Tad
lock was carted to the city bastlle as hun
dreds before him had been. Like many
before him have done Tadlock drowned his
grief in strong drink and then grew reck
Early Saturday morning the young
woman called at the city jail and Inter
vened for her father. She told City
Prosecutor Ie her story, and even that
official, whose ears are burdened from day
to day with human plaints and troubles,
would not prosecute Tadlock. The police
Judge discharged the prisoner.
In short. Tadlock's story was that ho
left Ills family In Illinois five years ago.
The wife waited three years for him to
return and then married again, later mov
ing to Omaha, where she and daughter
prospered. Tracing the family to Omaha
Tadlock arrived here Friday afternoon and
met his daughter near her place of em
ployment on Dodge street.
When searched at the city Jail a verse
of William Chains' old poem was found in
the man's pocket. The poetry had peculiar
significance in view of Tadlock's life. The
verse read: '
Within a crowded waiting room one cold
and wintry night,
I waited for the fast express upon its east
My thoughts took flight, as thoughts oft
will, to home, my girl and you;
Those happy days, once gone, returned and
passed in swift review.
John Neupert of California was arrested
Friday evening by Patrolman McCarthy on
the charge of drunkenness and begging on
the street. Neupert claimed he was wait
ing in Omaha to meet President "Mitchell"
on the Union Pacific. The prisoner en
deavored to identify himself by saying he
served President Roosevelt meals in New
York City when the president was police
commissioner. The police Judge discharged
Neupert with a warning.

The city engineering department is
preparing to respond to many complaints
of the use of sidewalk space by busi

by obstructions and driving teams and
wagons upon it. On Farnam street dur
