DODGE PLEADS NOT GUILTY
Disolaima Intention of Applying Botation
Scheme to Election of Delegates.
THINKS THIS EFFECTIVE FOR OPPONENTS
Wilt ' Go to the Kezt I.esUlat ur

Hvll. of the I'reaent
N. P. Dodg. Jr., legislative sponsor for
the primary election luwn In Nebraska de
plores the rotation ballot plan which the
courts thought necessary fur use In selecting-
delegations to the state convention,
and points out that enemies of the direct
primary will seise on the experience for
ammunition In contesting a direct primary
law for the whole state. Mr. Dodge says
there la no reason why the defects dis
covered should not be remedied and he
proposes to attend the next session of the
legislature and work for various- amend-
merits that practice has shown needful. He
"I think It Is very unfortunate that I did
not foresee the construction the courts
placed upon the rotation ballot clause of
the primary law. as it Is just such, things
as this, aa The Bee showed editorially, that
bring reforms In election laws Into bad
repute. I had no idea there would be any
rotating of the names of delegates. In fact
I thought we would hereafter have but one
'delegation and that the candidates would
file their names and the highest man would
get the delegation. 1 knew there would
bo no more county or city conventions In
Douglas. I provided for the election of
. state and district delegates, anticipating
nothing except they might be voted for
Rotatloa Scheme Dangerous.
"The primary law as a whole has come
t stay and we should be careful In ad
ministering It that the natural enemies to
It the special Interests cannot find weak
nesses that prove disagreeable to the voter.
If this rotating ot names la not corrected
before another state convention we will
have thrown at us one of the strongest
arguments used by the lobbyist for the
special Interests against the state primary
'aw, namely, the expense to the county.
1 have heard that the printing bill for the
rotation ballot alone will be about 17,00(1.
Vnder the old party primary plan the en
tire cost never exceeded $3,000, Including the
wages of Judges and clerks and everything
else, whereas a single Item under the new
plan Is twice as much In this instance.
"The construction placed upon the
statute by the courts Is one Of those -amples
of pure logic-reaching conclusions
that are Impractical and burdensome and
shows how frequently In enacting legisla
tion the legislature views matters In a
practical rather than a scholastic way. I
have no doubt that every man who takes
an Interest In political matters feels ws
had no such Intention ot Inconveniencing
the votr by compelling him to vote for
each delegate. The' strict Interpretation of
the statute and the wide publicity given to
It may be Inimical to the passage of a
state primary law at the next session of
the leglslatuie. Those Influences that have
promulgated our state tickets will take full
advantage of the opportunity, but they
must be defeated."
WILLIAM B. JACOBS TAKES ACID
Dies Before Doctor Who Was Kin
Hissed Coo Id Reach the
William B. Jacobs drank a quantity of
carbolic acid at the home of his brother-in-law,
Robert Richelieu, 1S0J Blnney street,
at 8.30 o'clock Friday afternoon, and when
found by his wife a few moments after
ward life was almost extinct. Dr. Hixliip
was called Immediately but when he ar
rived Jacobs was dead.
Financial reverses and consequent de
spondency are believed to have been the
cause ot the suicide. It is said the man
had attempted taking his. -own life before
and was saved from self-destruction by
drowning by a number of boys only a
couple of weeks ago. Mr. and Mrs. Jacobs
were to leave In the evening for Kansas
City, where their son had secured a posi
tion. Tickets had been purchased, bag
gage taken to the station and all was
ready for departure, when on entering a
bedroom Mrs. Jacobs saw her husband
stretched upon the bed, apparently dead.
The couple had made their home with
Mr. Richelieu for a short time, having
! previously lived at 23.14 Poppleton avenue.
Mr. Jacobs was lat employed with the
National Union, before which he had been
with the Modern Brotherhood of Arneilca
and the Kannus City Mutual Life Insur
! nnce company. The son was educated for
' the ministry.
Coroner Brailey took charge of the body
and will hold an inquest at 9 o'clock this

Ocnnoil Irnores Lynch'i Appeal for Facili
ties to Ds Proper Work.
MEANTIME TURNS DOWN APPOINTMENT
Pretend to Want OBlce Ahollshed nnd
Have Another Man Really
for It When It Is Recreated.
While the democratic council has been
busy trying to abolish the office tit gas
Inspector to recreate It and fill It with
another Incumbent more to Its liking, ur
gent requests of OAS Inspector Lynch for
facilities to Improve the gas service have
gone unheeded. The Inspector In bis re
port filed May 31 called attention to the
need of testing apparatus In his office and
made a number of recommendations, among
them being one for an analysis of the ga
to determine If the complaints of residents
about Increased bills with decreased rates
were well founded.
No attention whatever was paid to the
report by the democrats, who promised
everything under the sun to the people
of Omaha before election. The document
has been growing dust and cobwebs In a
pigeonhole In the comptroller's office and
the councllmen have gone their way de
vising schemes to defeat Mayor Dahlman's
plans for distributing patronage. .
Meter rroven Bad.
Inspector Lynch said during the month
of May he had tested nine meters at the
city hall, but that the meter prover was
not reliable and Should be put lrt proper
condition. He said the office required a
Bristol gauge to ascertain the gas pressure
at all hours, and that he could not . test
the candle power Ot lamps because the
photometer of the department waa broken
and should be repaired.
"Complaints continue to come In about
the Increased gas bills," he remarked.
"Gas should be analyzed, the heating
power determined and all meters tested
by the city to bring about proper re
sults." He pointed out that his apparatus was
altogether insufficient to do the work of
the office rightly.
Among the recommendations was one
that all gas posts not In use be removed,
as they are "unsightly and dangerous."
Up to date all the council has done with
regard to gas Is to obtain a letter from
President Hamilton of the gas company
saying It was Impossible to lower rates
under the $1.16 price, which will be ef
fective October 1. The communication was
put on file. .
Meanwhile It Is said eight of the coun
cllmen have made an Ironclad agreement
to fight the mayor on appointees for city
engineer, city prosecutor and gas Inspector
until a certain warm region freeses over.

A HOUSEHOLD STANDBY"
"In reply to your letter I writ you
my experience, and you are privileged
to use it as you see fit Last year,
after having my little girl treated by a
very prominent physician lor an obsti
nate case of ecsciua, I resorted to the
Cuticura Remedies, and was so well
pleased with the almost instantaneous
relief afforded that ws discarded the
fihysician's prescription and relied ent
irely on the Cuticura Soap, Cuticura
Ointment, and Cuticura Puis. When
we commenced with the Cuticura Rem
edies her feet and limbs were covered
with running sores. In about six weeks
we had her completely well, and there
has been no recurrence of the trouble.
"In July of this year a little boy in
our family poisoned bis bands and arms
with poiaon oak, and in twenty-four
hours nis hands and arms were a mass
of torturing sores. Ne used only the
Cuticura Remedies, washing his hands
and arms with the Cuticura Soap, and
anointed them with the Cuticura Oint
ment, and then cava him the Cuticura
Resolvent. In about three weeka his
hands and arms healed up; so we have
lots of cause) for feeling grateful for the
Cutioura Remedies. We find that the
Cuticura Remedies are a valuable
household standby, living as we do

It costs from twenty to twenty-five dol

liigs In the case of the Chicago Oreal I
Western against the fnlon Pacific were
being heard before Judge Munger In the
I'nlted States circuit eortrt Friday. The
opening argument was .made, by Edson
I Rich for the fnlon Pacific, denying the
fact of contempt. He argued that every
concession had been' given the Chicago
Great Western In conformity with the or
ders of the court and that no restrictions
had been made against that road in the i
matter ot terminal accommodations.
Mr. Rich occupied the entire forenoon In j
his argument. He was followed In the
afternoon by Frank B. Kellogg of St. Paul,
general attorney for the Chicago Great
Western, and W. D. McHugh of Omaha, In
which they undertook to show that the
orders of the court had been Ignored, giv
ing the Oreat Western terminal accommo

officials and employes had persistently en
deavored to annoy and hamper the Oreat
Western, especially In the matter of grain
