Every atep of the contest has been
watched by the politicians here and by
tha state officers, and while all conceded
Mr. Rosewater would get the great ma

Representative Crutchfleld of Kearney
county, .who. was, here .yesterday en route
to Omaha, was shown a sample ballot to be
used In the primaries
"That la all oatrage," he said. "People
who would resort to such tactics should
not be suocessful In politics. Mr. Rosewater
will suit us out In, Kearney county."

that way," he, said. ."The people won't
stand for that .Douglas county ballot. The

Rosewater in a fair fight, so they resorted
to the. rotation ballot. It glvta Rosewater

-: Fonrth at the Capital.
A few short hours after Mayor Brown's
proclamation tor a. safe and sane Fourth
had been Issued. .Lincoln assumed all the
aspecta ef an annex to Dr. Greene's In
stitution. The most fastidious of Dr.
Greene's guests would have been perfectly
at home on O street, and the hippopotamus.
Ilka movements of the small police force
to head off the ambltlona of the crowd of '
safe and sane celebrptors was amusing if
nothing else. , . (
Jn bls proclamation tJ .mayor called at
aoosennot the- fact, that Lincoln was with
out water with which to fight fires, and
therefore any person shooting a firecracker
er a revolver or an other explosive within
the business -district would be promptly
arrested. The proclamation waa riddled
with Roman candles, sky rockets, devil
chasers and such things aa soon as it was
dark, and mixed with these dangerous things
were thotfaands of torpedoes, which were
placed on the atreet car tracks. The fa
vorite place of operation along these lines
was ' near the IJndell hotel. When the
policeman reached this point and stopped
the work the noise began a block to the
east. And then, as though It waa a studied
attempt to oatractse the policeman from
participating lit any big arrests, the poople
turned loose all along the street car lines
and Mr. Policeman waa busier than a horse
fly, though not so successful. In causing
-' One Fire Alarm.
' During the early evening sn alarm of fire
Was turned In from Miller & Palnes. where
some cotton caught In the basement and
caused considerable smoke, but no damage.
"When the department made the run down
O street small boys and old men took a
few pokes at the firemen with Roman can
dles. 'When this failed to stir up enough
enthusiasm they were turned loose on the
crowd. During the horrible din some one
swooped' down and arrested a small boy
for riding a bicycle without displaying a
light, though the light waa a thousand
candle strong all around him.
Day was., broken with a' thousand
. punotures long . before it waa the usual
time for "the sun to get up, much less the
rest of the tamily. Then followed Lincoln
auid Sioux City, wttH a couple of games of
ball; a half dosen games between smaller
teams; the celebration at Epworth park
and Lincoln park the opening of Capital
Beach, and the open air show at Blystone
park. During the day no serious Injuries
were reported to the police, but late this
evening the doctors ars getting together

The report of Warden Boemer, filed with
the governor yesterday, contains mention
of an attempt made to escape by four pris
oners In the state penitentiary some days
ago. The prisoners In one cell had sawed
a hole over a foot square through the steel
side of the cell, while In another cell some
distance removed, a hole large enough to
permit a man going through, had almost
been completed when the work was dis
covered. In each cell the warden discovered
a braoe and bit, and rope with which the
prisoners expected to use in getting down
out of the building. Parker and Lynch,
burglars, were In one cell and Gray and
Bradley, bank robbers, were In the other
cell. The work had evidently been done
in a short time as the cells are thoroughly
inspected twice a week. Hereafter a daily
Inspection will be the rule.
Coacresatonal Primary In Lancaster.
The congresalonal committee of the Frst
congressional district has been called to
meet at the Llndell hotel Friday evening
at 8 o'clock for the purpose of deciding
whether to call a convention or a primary
and to set a date for the same. It is freely
predicted In Lancaster county Congressman
Pollard will not insist upon the committee
calling a primary, for If It does It Is be
lieved no other candidate will contest with
blm, and thus he will have to bear the en
tire expense. As to whether Pollard can
win out in a convention is a very much
disputed question and a very much dis
cussed question. A strong effort has been
made to get Judge Field to be a candidate

To obtain a uniform Barley, we have built a new, up-to-date
Malt House in the Best Barley section of Wisconsin,
and Wisconsin is conceded to be the banner Barley State in
the Union. Most brewers buy their Barley on the Board
of Trade, and get a mixed article; in fact, do not know
where their Barley comes from.
Our Malt House is equipped with the Galland-Hen-ning
"Drum System," thus insuring us Slow-Grown
8-Day Malt. Most Beer is made from 4 to 5-day
against Judge Holmes in this county, but
so fur without success. The other counties
would come to Judge Field, It Is said, but
It is claimed they will not come to Judge
Holmes, which means if Holmes stays In
the race' Pollard's chances for a renomlna
tlon are good. Over the district, though
not so much In Lancaster county, there is
a feeling against Pollard and a desire to
return him to his orchard. In this county
so far, it seems, either take Holmes or
Pollard. Some of Holmea' friends say If
the outside counties won't take Holmea,
then Holmea will force Pollard on the dis
trict, as he did at the last convention.
Boyd County Land Casts.
The state legal department has filed' a

land cases. This Is the case in which the

of the land. The court held, in Its opinion,
the settlers should be allowed the Improve,

that had her nest In the box elder near his
bedroom window had begun her morning
thanks, arose and dressed htm leisurely and
strode out Into his tittle garden at the back
of his lot, and without losing any of the
wren's melody plucked him a bunch of
radishes, cut a liberal supply of heads of
tender lettuce, picked a pan of strawberries,
and while in the garden took out of the
soil several handfuls of young beets with
their tops and also picked a dish of green
Going back to the house he picked over
and washed the vegetables, and berries, lay
ing the peas and beets aside to be cooked
for dinner. The radishes, lettuce, berries,
together with a pitcher of milk and a plate
of crackers or bread, go on the table.
Breakfast Is ready. There has been no
banging of stove lids. No frantic stirring

THIRTEEN INSTANTLY KILLED
Runaway Oar Dashes Into Party of Merrymaker-
Near Fortaee, Fa.
VICTIMS ARE ALL MINERS FROM ARABIA
Car Rons Three Miles Down Steep
Grade and Leaves Track at
'Sharp Carve Bodies Hor
' ALTOONA, Pa., July 4. investigation
today of the runaway car accident near
Portage late last night showed that thir
teen men of a party who were holding a
celebration along the track were killed.
8everal others were Injured.
The disaster happened on what is known
aa "Martin's curve" on a track four miles
long that acts as a feeder for several mines
located between Portage and Puritan. The
Incline Is very steep and It Is the custom
to run cars down to Portage by gravity.
The car had gone three miles before leaving
the tracks and had gained a frightful mo
mentum. It hit Martin's curve while go
ing at full speed and left the tracks at a
sharp angle, turning half way round and
plunging into the crowd of merrymakers.
The party had been drinking and singing
for several hours. One of the men taken to
Portage to have his Injuries dressed de
clared the party was singing Its last song
prior to retiring for the night. The specta
tors were appalled by the frightful sight
that waa presented. Two of the unfor
tunate foreigners had been decapitated.
The lower portion of the bodies of four
men were visible, while the trunks were
crushed Into a shapeless mass, pinned down
by the twisted steel and broken timber.
One man whose head and a portion of his
body protruded from the wreckage was
alive when the first of the rescuers ar
rived at the scene, but they were unable
to remove the weight thst pinned him to
the ground and he died In a few minutes.
Awful Sight Under Wreckage.
In the course of an hour a portion of the
wreckage had been removed and disclosed a
horrible sight. Directly under the car were
at least seven bodies and they were ground
Into the earth, the heads crushed as flat
as though they had been placed under a
All of the dead men were Arabians who
had lately been Imported to work In the
mines near Portage. . Many of them were
young, at least nine of the killed being
under 21 years old. They lived In a shanty
near the scene of the disaster. A Portage
undertaker was directed to take charge of
the remains. Several of the bodies, ground
to a pulp, were shoveled Into a wheel
barrow and taken to the undertaker's.
It' was Impossible to see the car--in Its
headlong flight down the decline until It
was within twenty feet where it left the
tracks. It cleared the tracks, plunging sev
eral feet Into the air and alighting squarely
upon the Arabians. The awful suddenness
made escape out of the question.
Mine policemen are making an Investiga
tion with a view to ascertaining who
started the car and the coroner of Cambria
county la also Investigating.
