DENVER, Sept. .-PhllHp B. Stewait.
recenuj- nnminsira tor governor 01 v.oio- :
rado on th republican ticket, tonight wnt i at
a letter to the republican state chairman
declining the nomination, While the letter
doee not state It In 16 many words, the
reason Mr. Stewart declined to run Is on
account of the placing of Judge William
M. Oabbert on the ticket as candidate for
re-election to the supreme bench. Before
the convention Mr. Stewart advised against
the nomination of Gabbert. When the nom
ination was made Stewart was not pres
ent, being 111 at his hotef. He did not
learn that Gabbert' ''name was on the
ticket until Sundnr aria It Is said he de
clared to State Chairman Vivian that "he
would not run on the same ticket with a
populist." A very diplomatic letter was
sent to Ohtsf Justice Gabllert, who was
elected (to the supreme bench six years
ago as a populist. Oabbert la said to have
declared; he would not withdraw If the
entire republican ticket refused to run with
him." Mr. Stewart then gavf the republican
tate central committee until 10 o'clock
tonight to get Gabbert ort the ticket. As
no move was apparently made In that di
rection he Issued the following letter to
right: DENVER, Sept. 17. lSOfi John F. Vivian.
Chairman Republican State Central Com
mittee. Denver, Colo.: Dear Blr I beg to
Inform you that I have forwarded to the
secretary of state my declination of the
nomination of the office of governor re
cently tendered me by the state republican
1 very deeply regret that a sudden and
evere attack of, lllneg prevented, under
directions of my. physician, the report of
the work of the convention being- brought
to my attention prior to Its final adjourn
ment on Saturday last.
A later act of the convention, however,
makes It quite Impossible for me to render
tc..,'le star end to the party the service
whloh I bed confidently hoped to perform
In the coming campaign.
I wish to exprert through you to the re
publicans of the state my sincere appreci
ation of the honor conferred by my nom-
i me many personal assur
ances of regard, and to assure you that
my efforts for the success of the party
and Its principles will be In no way re
laxed, very respectfully vours,
V; PHILLIP B. STEWART.;
It la reported tonight that Judge Charles
F. CaswelJ, who was nominated with Mr.
Gabbert for the supreme bench, will with
draw his name from the ticket tomorrow.
There was, also a report current tonight
that the republicans would call another
convention and nominate an entire new
ALL IS WELL AT LINCOLN NOW
Maker an Hie Auto Having; Sabslded,
Peace Aarala Relgas ea
Colonel John O. Maher. of Lincoln la In
Omaha and brlnga the consoling Informa
tion that he and his automobile have burled
the hatchet and signed,-sealed and executed
a treaty of peace. It Is understood there
la at' third party -to the treaty namely, the
city of Lincoln.
Colonel Maher's auto threatens to plunge
him even further Into the limelight than
did his faithful typewriter during the
troublous daya of the Spanish-American
war, down at Chlckamauga, when General
Grant, who Insisted on making use of the
bellicose colonel's typewriter, was all but
court-martialed by the fall sycamore from
the Platte originally the Wabash.
. That automobile had become the terror
Of tranquil Lincoln; men dodged it, atreet
Cre stopped "to let It pass, anxious mothers
fled with their little ones at Us approach
and children ran, screaming, to their mam
mae whenever It met their gase. The fact
la, or waa, the auto waa not inherently a
bad auto no worse than any auto but It
Waa too much for Colonel Maher. 'With the
doughty colonel at Ita helm the machine
waa just as. liable to go snorting up O
street when he wanted It to traverse Thir
teenth street as anything and all the col
onel could do would not change things a
bit. The machine would stand and puff
and plunge like an Infuriated bull, and one
time It actually plowed lta .way Into a
house, from which the frightened occupants
fled In holy terror. Immediately this depre
dation became publicly known; residents of
that part of town held a mass meeting and
decided the only thing to do In the Interest
of humanity waa to build "auto" cellars on
the same order as the cyclone cellars In
It waa at this juncture -4-he city took a
hand in affaire. After repeated conferences
between Colonel Maher. the city officials
nd two or Jhree expert automobile men,
matters were patched up in such a way as
to obvla(a the, necessity of auto cellars.
And today, ' so. the story runs,' vehicles
nd pedestrians travel the streets of Lin
coln with almost the same Immunity that
.surrounds the Inhabitants of other commu
nities, where rantankerous uutos and
belligerent typewriters are wholly unknown.

of the Lawrence family at 2814 Webster
street Tuesday morning and discovered one
of the worst cases of squalid surroundings
he ever witnessed. Mr. Carver's particular
Interest In the rase was the welfare of two
children, I and 4 years of age, the children
of Mrs Vace, daughter of Mr. Lawrence.
The building occupied by the four per
sons Is a double house with eight rooms.
When Mr. Carver entered the place he at
first thought he hsd received the wrong
address, as he wandered through empty
rooms until he located ths family In a
side room with nothing but one old mat
tress on the bare Moor and a broken down
stove. The mother and grandfather were
given three daya In which to find suitable
quarters for the two children under
penalty of having the children taken away
from tbem and properly cared for.

A glorious leave-taxing waa the one of
Monday night at Ak-Sar-Ben den, . where
a large assemblage of loyal knights paid
their last visit to the . Fountain of Youth
and its youth-giving waters. The very
rafters of the old building reverberated
with the enthusiasm of those who have
made up the legion of honor for the com
ing of King- Ak-Bar-Brn XII. two weeks
hence. Every eye beamed with a luster
peculiar to the Inner circles of Ak-Sar-Ben,
every ear was keen, to hear - every word
apoken by those who had the gift of oral
expression, every hand was quick to grasp
the hand of his neighbor and every heart
beat with firmness.
Judging from the twelfth year at the den
the king, when he enters his favored city
thla fall, may well look about him and pro
nounce his gracloua blessinf on the city and
state which has done so much for his king
dom the past season.
One of the largest. If not the largest,
crowd of the season was on band at the den
last evening. As is usual on the last In
itiation night Gua Renze injects a little ex
tra flss into the Fountain, and last evening
was no exception. A more good-natured
and yet resolute body of men than the
one at the den last evening; could not b
found within many, many miles of the chief
city of Qulvera.
Speeches Short aad to the Point.
The list of sneakers was well selected by
Acting Grand Mufti B. F. Thomas. A few
pithy remarks cf the various sponsors of
Ak-Bar-Ben and the realm, as related last
evening;, follows: .

GERMAN BANDMEN ARRESTED
Maslrtans Victims of Joke that De
prives Them of Their Real
After the initiation at -the Ak-Ear-Bcn
den Monday evening the German band.
Imported for the occasion, was hauled to
the police station and charged with die
turblng the peace by making loud and
unusual noises against the peace and dig
nity of the city of Omaha. Of course tho
whole affair was a Joke, but where the
real joke came In was. when the members
of the band wandered back to the den for
their regular clothes. By the time the
band returned Gus Rense had gone home
and left In charge a watchman,. who had
not been advised of the fake arreats.
The members of the band lined up at the
east entrance at 12:U a. m. and Herman
Dlnkinspell, leader of the band, knocked
loudly on the door. Watchman Johnson
responded by asking". "'Who goea there?"
' "Der Shoyman band. Glf us oar clothes
already, or If you don't glf ua some clothes
.we vill make some noises vot you like not,",
replied 'the leader.
But the watchman had instructions to let
no one enter after hours, so he knew only
his duty, as he understood it Der Shoyman
band went home In the burlesque attire,
i, Mayor Dahlman personally called at the
police station after the arrest and arranged
for the release' of the prisoners.
A nut brown maid captured the hearts
of those who went to the Auditorium last
night to hear the Royal Hawaiian band.
She was Misa Lei Lehua, whose clear, liquid
voice sang In her own soft native tongue
the Hawaiian farewell, "Aloha Oe," to
music composed by her one time sovereign.
Queen Lllluokalanl. She sang other songs,
too, some tinged with sadness and filled
with longing, others bright and lively. For
all she waa given generous applause. She
la pleasant In appearance, with expressive
features, slender body and abundant hair.
Once or twice, as encores, she sang Amer
ican songs, perhaps Just to show her au
dience her versatility, for the native melo
dies were much sweeter.
Scarcely less popular were the songs of
the Glee club, part ot them arranged by
Band Director Berger, and part of them
by the Hawaiian Sonny Conha, director of
the Glee club. These were much more
thoroughly appreciated than "Happy
Heine" and other popular muslo which dec
orated the program at frequent Intervals.
In the Glee club numbers John" 8. Bills
appeared twice In tenor solos, pleasing; his
audience Immensely. The -"Stars and
Stripes" at the beginning of the program
and "The Star Spangled Banner" at the
end served to remind the audience that the
people on the stage, though dark-skinned
and of another tongue, were a part of the
American republic. Altogether it was' an
