F. Novak, Assistant County Attorney Fos
ter and others, telling of the remarkable
trend of sentiment In favor of Mr. Rose
water and urging the need of careful work
at the primaries July t to overcome the dlf-
flcultlea of the confused ballot forced by the
machinations of the remnant of the Fonui
n.lles. Precinct committeemen reported 90 . per
cent of the Tenth ward voters anxious to
tend Mr. Rosewater the senate, but era
phaaixed the necessity of Instructing people
how to mark their ballota properly. Mr.
Behm and others declared they proposed to
make a house-to-house canvass of their dis
tricts to roll up the biggest posalble ma
jority. nana Which Miscarried.
"In my political experience I have found
the men of no ward more enthuslustlc or
displaying greater Interest in polltlcnl mnt-
trs than those of the Tenth," fnid Mr.
Cowel'l. "This time you will find you are
up against a proposition specially deslpiird
to prevent many of you voting for the ilrT-
tgates to the atate convention whom yn
1 "Few men In the county or city who bnve
paid any attention to politics durfhg the
Inst few years can be found who will not
concede that If It were U-ft to popular vote
Kdward Rosewater would be elected United
States senator by on overwhelming major-
ity. The opposition In our own city know
It and they know It well. Prior to th. last
city election a man . who often acts as
spokesman for the Fontanelle club called on
Victor Rosewater and asked him his opinion
about the filing of delegates to the atate
convention. He said It was Ms theory that
the eighty-three delegates should be brack
eted so one cross In the circle would suf
fice. Mr. Rosewater agreed with him. The
Fontanelle club fully expected to win In
'the city campaign and emerge as a strong
political factor. They planned to Induce a
prominent man of large means to be fju-lr
standard-bearer for t'nlted States senator
and they anticipated an easy victory In
capturing the state convention.
"They later realised that they must con
duct their senatorial fight on a different
basis. They first presented a plan for
a compromise delegation, half from each
faction, to be pledged to the candidate fqr
senator tecelvlng the highest preferential
vote. Experience had taught ua that such
a delegation could not be effective. If
Mr. Rosewater won, the Fontanelle half
would go to Lincoln, not to make him
senator, but to embarrass his candidacy.
Plan of Fontanelles. ,
"The opposition then went info court,
finding they could not get a man willing
to be their candidate who could defeat
Mr. Rosewater In a fair and open fight.
The only hope they had left was to break
into the Rosewater delegation ' for the
' purpose of making trouble in the conven
tion and possibly prevent any endorsement
for senator. We are told their present
plan is' to concentrate on from two to
twenty-Ave of their delegates with the
hope of making them part of the delega-
tlon to carry out this program of dissen
sion and dog-in-the-manger policy.
"W are anxious to send a solid delega
tion to Lincoln. Buch a body would lend
prestige to the Rosewater candidacy and
influence other delegates I feel, however,
that even though our delegation Is not en
tirely solid the convention will nominate
Mr. Rosewater anyhpw. I have aeen a
surprisingly large number of letters from
Influential men all over the atate, some
of whom have antagonized Mr. Rosewater
for years, pledging their support to him
at thla time on the ground that ha Is the
Nebraskan best fitted to represent the
state and entitled to the honor because
be has done more for the republican party,
the state and city of Omaha, than any
other man In Nebraska.
"It is necesarry to exercise great car
in marking the ballot and to carefully edu
cate all voters alqng these lines. If more
than eighty-three delegates are voted for
the ballot Is lost and the Judges must dis
card It. If you spoil your ballot In th
booth you ran get another one. but a
spoiled ballot once In- the bos Is lost.
Every man Interested In Mr. Rosewater's
success should get out and take part in
this work of Instruction. If you do there
will be no doubt of the complexion of the
delegation that goes to Lincoln, Oet the
voters out. and if half who are pledged
to the cause vote our list, it will be car
ried by a great majority."
Mr. C.owell explained at length th In
tricacies of the. rotated ballot and said
that study ana preparation was the only
V to guard against pitfalls.

BULL PEN SUITJS DISMISSED
Federal Court In Colorado Find.
Injury Complained of lacideat
to Martial Law.
DENVER, June 2J.-Judge R. E. Lewis
in the I'niied States district court today
dismissed the suit of Mlehaet Gibbon, for
mer police magistrate of Victor. Colo., for
$.00rt damages against L. E. Hill, Nel
son Franklin, F. M. Woods and H. Mc
Garry, the military commission appointed
by Sherman Bell, adjutant general of the
Colorado National Guard, to investigate the
case of prisoners who were thrown into
flie bull pen during the labor war of 1904
In the Cripple Creek mining district." Gib
bon accused the defendants of conspiracy
to compel him to resign his office and of
false arrest and Imprisonment.
The case was dismissed after General
Bell testified that, acting under the gov
emor'a proclamation of martial law, he
had ordered the troopa to throw In Jail
any men "who would make trouble" and
any who were "liable to be attacked."
Gibbon, he aaJd. was locked up because
his life had been threatened.
"I chose th military commission," said
General Bell. "They were responsible solely
to me. They had no right to order arrest.
Their dty was to examine the case of
every man In the bull pen and then ad
vise me. I did not have to accept their ad
vice. If I thought right I discharged a
After hearing this statement Judge Lewis
interrupted the proceedings. He said that
the constitution and the statute of Colo
rado gave the governor the right to declare
martial law and he was the sol Judg aa
to whether th facts Justified such action.
Military rule always worked hardship on
soma one, he continued, bu't unless It could
be shown that persona affected had been
maliciously mistreated and such treatment
was not merely an Incident In the general
purpose of suppressing anarohy they had
no recourse and no cause of action. Th
Jury waa inatruoted to decide for th defendants.
MAY ASK COURT TO HELP THEM OUT AGAIN
Indian. Begla to Discover 'What a
Bad Mistake They Made la. Farclasj
Rotation Ballot to Dlstraa
l raise Voter.
County Clerk Meveny said Saturday
morning he would not allow the withdrawal
of any of the Fontanelle candidates for
delegate, as the time for such withdrawal
has passed. The copy Is already In the
hands of the printers and the ballot will
not be changed.
Not fully satisfied with their rotation
ballot mandamus, the Fontanelles may ask
the court to help them out again.
Testerilay afternoon several of the lead
ing Indians appeared in the county clerk's
ofTlce and wanted County Clerk Haverly to
agree to let them pull off forty or fifty of
the names they had filed as candidates for
delegates to the republican state conven
tion. "The time allowed Dy law for withdraw
als," said County Clerk Haverly, "has ex
pired and the ballots are now In the hands
of the printer."
"But we have too many name filed," de
clared the Fontanelle spokesman. "We
don't want to scatter so much. We ought
to be able to pull our men off any time we
want to, especially If by doing so it re
duces the expenses of printing."
"The law is very plain," replied Mr.
Haverly. 'T.'nder the mandamus Issued by
the court, I must obey it strictly. It says
I must make up the sample ballot on the
Mth day before the primary election, which
was last Tuesday. Even under the general
election lsw, which allows up to twelve
days before election for withdrawals, you
are too late. If you think I am wrong, you
have the privilege of going into court
The Fontanelle delegation endeavored to
persuade Mr. Haverly that they were Above
the law and should have whatever they
asked for, but In vain. They did not Indi
cate what names they Intended to with
draw, nor did they have any withdrawal
requests signed by their candidates for pre
sentation. . Fontanelle In a Bad Bos.
"The trouble with the Fontanellea," said
a court house man who witnessed the per
formance, "Is that they have bitten off
more than they can chew. They started
out In the expectation of getting an alpha,
betlcal ballot, stationary and not rotated,
and to confuse the voters got as many
people to file as delegates as they could
Induce to do so. They evidently got those
people to file to Influence the court In their
mandamus case by making out that a
larg-e number of Independent candidates
wanted to go to the convention and were
entitled to the same chance of election as
those who had lined up on one side or the
other of the senatorial contest, and now
having accomplished their purpose with the
court, so far as getting the decision Is
concerned, they want to pull off all those
independent candidates whose rights they
were so eager to protect.
"The rotation ballot order haa left those
folks with 140 names, as agatnst . only
eighty-three Rosewater delegates, and
makes It almost Impossible for them to
concentrate. Thex asked 'all these people
to file as a favor to them, and to cut any
of them out will be slapping their own
friends In th face. They admit they were
beaten In advance If the ballots were made
up with group delegations, and now they
have discovered that they are no better off
by reason of their foolish Insistence', upon
their rotation scheme. If the Fontanelles
had set out purposely to play th wrong
card on every trick they could not hav
done so more successfully than they have

inally guilty of prolonging th excesses by
abandoning his post. Th governor washed
his hands of the affair, not knowing th
attitude ef the officials at St. Petersburg,
and absented himself from the scene with
out giving a single order. That th gov

assumed that the Goremykln ministry,
which bsd printed Blak Hundred circulars,
would not punish those who participated In

principally responsible. In concluding the
