. Brother-ln-Law to Pro
. Arthur B. Jaqulth, president of the Ex
change Grain company, 32ft Board bf Trade
building, and vice president of the Ne
braska Underwriters Insurance company,
was found lying dead In a deserted portion of
Kountze Place In the old exposition ground,
with a self-inflicted bullet wound through
Ms heart, about 6 o'clock Tuesday morn
ing. The body was discovered by W. S.
Jtowe, 3818 North Twentieth street, and
Arthur Davis, 2W5 insas avenue, two
youths who passed on a nearby footpath.
The police 'and coroner were notified and
the .body taken to Brailey & Dorrance's
undertaking rooma A 3S-callbre revolver
with one shell exploded was found lying
beside the body.
Mr. Jaqulth lived at 2017 Spencer street.
He left his office late Mondayafternoon
fat company with his business partner,
O. E. ) dames, and appeared to be in his
usual health and mental condition. No
mention was made to Mr. Barnes of an
Intention to takj his life nor was any In
timation given to any members of his
He went to Union station early1 Monday
evening to meet hia sister, Mrs. George
Lowe, and her husband, who live at Cedar
Rapids, la., and came from Fremont,
spending the evening In their company nnd
playing with h.a children. During the
evening he appeared to be laboring under
rm for tof mental stress, but not auch
as' to excise comment.
' Writes the I'nual Notes.
' Mr. Jaqulth remained up after the other
: members of the family had retired and
'wrote two notes to his brother-in-law. Mr.
1 Lowe. Informing him of his Intention to
commit suicide. One of the notes was writ
tan, on heavy paper and said: "Do I not
leave until I return. I want you to care
for my ' wife and ' . Vfn." The second
, note was written on wire's stationery
and read: .."Dear George:. .Owing to my 111
, health, I cannot bear to remain-with you
any longer. .' I want you to: take care of my
' ftvlfe and children." i
J? The '"spot 'Where tbe two boy a found the
rtody fain the portbeast corner of the pajk
about alxty feet from an artesian' well, Jt
waa lying partly concealed by a clump bf
bushes. The spot was evidently selected
; for Us distance from any residences, the
fiearist being a full block away. So far as
learned no, one In the neighborhood heard
, any shot fired during the night
'. It Is believed Mr. Jaqulth took his life
' before midnight, from the condition of the
' body when found. The park la about five
.' blocka from hia home and he evidently had
.gone directly there and after selecting a
spot waited until no one was In sight.
, , Charter Member of Exchange.

secretary and treasurer, Mr. Jaqulth waa

the Chicago Board of Trade. As a member
Of the local grain exchange he was a very
i active trader and a great volume of busi
ness waa done by his firm, which waa In
: eorporated several years ago. The business
' affairs of the firm are In first-class shape
' and will be continued for the present by
; Mr. Barnes, although It Is possible the
corporate name may be changed after set
tlement. For twenty years Mr. Jaqulth was as
sociated with Frank H. Peavey of Mlnne
' spoils in the gralrl business and resided
in Minneapolis and 81oux City when rep
resenting the Peavy. elevatora. He was
general manager of the Peavey business In
Omaha, which waa then transacted through
tbe Omaha JSlevator - company, but his
health failed about seven years ago and he
was ent by Mr. Peavey for a trip around
the world and waa gone a year, being suc
ceeded as manager of the Omaha Elevator
company by Edward P. Peck.
One of the Prim Movers.
When the Omaha Grain Exchange was
organised In 19US he took a prominent part
In the movement and was a charter mem
ber, being elected to a position on the
directorate, to which he was re-elected re
cently. His wide acquaintance for the last
' twenty-five years among grain dealers
brought him an Immense commission busi
ness. Ills business obligations were Invariably

' large deals, chief among which was an at

These conditions should be
remedied. After a few dote of
there is a quick improvement ia
the general health. Slight ail

serious affairs, unless promptly
taken in hand. Use Beecham'e

RESULTS SHOW MUCH SCRATCHING
Voting- In Most Instances Is uletly
Condneted nnd Party Questions
Are Kept Entirely In
Elections were held yesterday In all the
Incorporated cities and towns of Nebraska
except Omaha and Lincoln, the special
charter cities. South Omaha, also a spe
clal charter city, elected two republicans
to the board of education. Only In rare
cases were party lines drawn, and where
the lines were drawn at all between demo
crats and republicans the success was vary
ing, neither side gaining any material ad
vantage. The question of license or no
license waa the chief point at Issue, and
the returns seem to show that a large num
ber of towns of the state have shown i
desire to admit the saloon, this being es
pecially true of the larger towns. Republi
cans won at Fremont, Beatrice, Blair,
Tecumseh, Alliance and McCook. Demo
crate carried Schuyler, Columbus, Ashland,
North Platte and Grand Island, though In
Schuyler four republicans, Including mayor.
Warm Contest at Benson.
BENSON, Neb., April 2,-(Speclal Tele
a;ram.)-The election today for city of
ficers was a warm one. There were two
ticket In the field, the citizens, headed by
Mayor Howard, who was up for re-election
and won out. The remainder of the
ticket was mixed. Both parties declare In
favor of Sunday closing and the Issue was
largely one of personal favoritism. The
following Is the result:
Mayor, Howard, citizens, 215; Long, law
and order, 142; treasurer, Wulf, on both
tickets, 247; clerk, Johnson, citizens, 170
Stlger, law and order, 177; police Judge,
Killer, citizens, 196; Carter, law and order,
161; engineer, Snell, citizens, 206; Hauck,
law and order, 137; oouncllmen. First ward

kins, 209; Rice, 179; Brown, 172.
LONG PINE, Neb., April 2. (Special Tel
egram.) The local Temperance and Im
provement club, after a bitterly fought
campaign, received at the election polls to
day the most decisive defeat It has ever
received. The high license candidates, W
B. Dickson, W. H. Mason and W. B,
Dougherty, were elected by a majority of
fifty votes. This Is the largest majority
that high license ever polled in Long Pine,
and this majority was polled In spite of
tns heavy personal abuse that was heaped
upon the high Ilcenso candidates by the
temperance party. This has been the most
bitter campaign ever witnessed In Long
Blnlr Still "Wet."
BLAIR, Neb;, April 2. (Special Tele
gram.) The candidates on the high license
ticket won out today with Honorable W,
D. Haller for mayor with a majority of
64 over Dr. C. R. Mead, the "dry" ticket
candidate. Tl 'a the third attempt of
the antt-saloci. tuple to make Blair a dry
town. The contest, while a quiet one, was
closely contested and the result was
surprise to both sides. The council for the
next year will- stand, in all probability,
to t in favor of high license. Mr. Haller
will now, serve . his tenth term aa mayor of
Blair with a record that none can question.
In the Second' ward the candidates for
council, Gearhart. Mehrens and Charles
RobertBon, tied and the council will de
cide the vote. Jamea EvMaher and Dr.
C. Rl Mead, the anti-license candidate for
mayor, were re-elected as members of the
Board of Education. Chris Schmidt, city
treasurer, was re-elected, as was also
Wallle McAllen, city clerk, with W. H.
Hill, city engineer. The city election a
year ago with the referendum as an Is
sue, was so bitterly contested and so much
pressure was brought to bear on the ad
ministration that all chairs, tables and
partitions were taken out of the saloons
and standing room only has been the pro
gram for the last year. The temperance
people declare their intention of trying the
Issue another time and will not give up
until Blair Is a dry town.

GRAND ISLAND, April 1 (Special.)
Today's election was one of the most
quiet in the history of the city. There was
no opposition to the present incumbent for
mayor, city clerk, water commissioner or
for three of the members of the council.
A contest for police Judge and treasurer
resulted, there being three candidates for
each, but little Interest was taken In the
result, no Issues being Involved. A special
election for the county has been called on
May 28th, on the single question as to.
whether the county should sell the old
court house square atrn upset price of
113,000. The question has been up three or
four times before, and once at a special
election, but it has always failed to carry
the necessary two-thirds vote. The upset
price upon the former occasions has In
variably been $10,000. The price of the
property, located In one of the best resi
dence sections, has Increased and the vot
ers have thus lost nothing In not selling.
The block waa originally donated by the
Union Pacific for court house purposes.
