(Jeoige L. Sheldon carried Pouglns county
ly an even 230 majority, according to the
official count of the voten. The totals on
governor wero made Friday afternoon and
how Sheldon recidvetf f.Ko votos and
Tht canvassing board protests against In
sinuations that It Is to blame for the late
ness In securing the returns. They ascribe
it to Incompetent and careless olpctlon ofll
rials. In four or Ave 'products the re
turns have beu Incomplete and It hiis
been necessary for the hoard to send out
and get the complete figures. In the Klrt
or the Tenth wrd the vote was not re
turned at all and the board had to open
the voting machine In order to get at the
facts. In Millard precinct thu board for
got to Include the count on the constitu
tional amendment and It was nncessiiry to
end a messenger -out to get the returns
from the duplicate books. In one, ot he:'
precinct an error was made In rccordlnu
the vote and the board had to go to the
trouble of having it corrected. All . thl
has taken time and the members of the i
. board contend they have done the work
as rapidly ss possible. The matter of
making returns is very simple, amounting
only to a trunsfer of the figures from thi
machines to the poll books, and even this
mechanical transaction appeared to stump
some of The tlectiou boards.
Nearly 5, Qua entirely new gurments are be
ing distributed among the hospitals ;and
charitable' institutions of the city as a re
sult of the annual collection of tho Needle
work snilld. The garments were gathered
at t'nlty church Thursday, counted and
sorted' and assigned to the various charities
according to their need.. The collect loft In
cludes everything in the way . of wearing
apparel nnd a considerable. quantity of bed
linen and towels.. About 116 was given -in
cash, which . will be. expended for . more
clothing. ' . '.' .-
The annual election of officers of the guild
was. held Friday morning.' Mrs. R. C. Mrtoro
being made president, to succeed". Mm.
Thomas Kllpatrick. and Mis Louise' Harris
and Mrs.-J. .W. Nicholson, secretary and
treasurer, respectively.- .
Friday afternoon' the guild v held ' n tea
In the parlors of Unity church that all In
terested might have an, opportunity to see
. tho collection and the disposition that. had
; been made of It. - ','.'..
I This annual 'distribution Is one of thu
chief sources from which tho hospitals and
charitable Institutions of the citv derive
their supply of new clothing. The e.nntrihu- i
tion of two new garments Is the member- I
ship fee of the guild and the only obligation j
entailed. The guild was organized In Omaha I
twelve years ago by Mrs. Humphrey and!
Mrs. James Van No Jt rand and has grown j
from a small beginning of a few'dosen par- i
menfs to this year's splendid result.
Thirty-four prisoners lu the city and
county Jails benefited by the executive
clemency of Mayor Dalilmnn during the
month of Octvbtr, for It was that numler
of pardons tho mayor lssm-d ns shown by
tho official records at tin: police headquar
ters and sheriff's office.
I The records wnieii reveal tins state oi
affairs relative to the lavish exercise of
the pardon power also discloses the fact
that his honor, the mayor, has ventured
to remit fines .Imposed upon offenders of
the law by the: police Judge, tho name of
fenders being pardoned by Colonel Dahl
man. This has been done In at least three
cases, thoso of Richard Joyce, Ed Thomas
and J. C. Llndsey, where the lines wero
That Mayor Daulman's magnanimous at
titude toward the erring Is not exactly to
the liking of all his party rsnentei lins
come to light from several different
crevices In the uncertain liouas of demo
cracy. Tho mayor has not undertaken to re
fute the records in the sheriff's office nor
those held against him by the clerk of the
polles court, but he did take violent ex
ceptions to tho 'publication of the state
ment that he pardoned Mamie Willlan s
and Verna Clark, two characters who got
out of Jail on bonds. Both he and Chief
IXinahue aver the mayor did not pardon
the women, though The liep obtained Its
Information on which the story was pub
lished from C'lly I'rosecutor lanicl, who
asserted the mayor's pHrdou of thoso
women was told him by tho desk sergeant
at the police. ' station. The desk sergeant
says "I didn't, either."
Dablman Jumps on Daniel.
Friday morning Mayor I'nhlnian called
Up City Prosecutor Daniel over the - tele
phone, and while Mr. Daniel's end of the.
conversation was not audible lu the mayor's
office to those listening, what Mr. Dahlman
said to Mr. Daniel fell upon tho ears of
all with no uncertain sound.
But for this littl.! string of pardons Mr.
Daniel is not responsible; It comes from
the official . records and only covers the
month of October:

mayor's office and returned n a short time !
with a pardon for McVey. Both are well
known chracters. Boy Givens, another ben-

A TRIPLE CURE BY
A. D. T. Mends Pmall Roys to Pro
scribed District aad Postal
A, report has been made to the Juvenile
court that the order of that court had not
been obeyed by the messenger service com
panies In respect to fending small boys with
messages and packages to the red light din
trlct and Judge Button has made the asser
tion that the order of the court will have
to be heeded.
Manager Vmstead of the Westurn Union,
which also controls the A. D. T. boys, said
In reference to the order: '
"We don't send any small boys there and
are complying with the regulations as laid
down by the court officers. Wc have plenty
of large boys who are through school or
re attending night schools, or sre past the
school age. and these we send when we
have messages or packages for that section
of the city."
Manager Huntley of the Postal Telegraph
I company said:
"We have received no such orders from
j the court, nor any notice of such orders.
; and I old not know thure was such a re
quest. We deliver no packages and besides
have no boys working for us under 16 yeurs

dreadfully. Ia two mouths, under the
skilful treatment of my dm tor, con
joined with Cuticura Soap and Cuticura
Ointment, I found myself cured.
"Six years ago my son was laid up
with a ae vera cold, a hard cough, and
finally painful eruption all over the
body. I procured the Cuticura Remedies
as soon as possible, and after his faith
ful use of same was as well as ever iu
