TALK OF THE POLITICIANS
Sidney W. Smith Selected as Man
ager for Fontanelles'.
OLD WAS HORSES BALK AT JOB
Several of Them Are Asked to Poll
, the. Load, bat Prefer to Throw
It, on the YoonsT
1 . ' .',. . Fellow.
After trying out a half dosen old stanfl
bys who refused to rlak their reputations
with the aggregation bearing the Fon
tanels label this year, the candidates
with price mark endorsements have en
gaged Sidney W. Smith as campaign
manager to look after their intereata tor
the primary. "Sid" Smith la no relation
to "Bob" Smith, although the similarity
of names and th further fact that both
have decided prohibition leanings may
have had something to do with his selec
tion. ' "Sid" Smith is a law clerk in the
offlco of MCGIlton & Gaines. He has
been In close touch with Judge Vlnaon
haler, who used to throw htm occasional
plums from the county court that stif
fened hi loyalty to the "ant Is."
"What determined us for 'Sid' Smith."
explained one of the Fontanelle candi
dates, "was the experience he had as sec
retary el the . committee that managed
the bolting Benson campaign against
Moore in 1903. He was indefatigable
then and went right through with those
of us who had walked out of the city
convention when Moores was declared
the regular republican nominee. Of course.
It was A losing fight he waged for Ben
son, but he ought to do' better this time."
rvmocrats are now figuring upon having
a complete ticket In the field when the
polls open In November despite the fact
that there will be a larpe number of va
cancies on the primary ticket. Andy Gal
lagher,, chairman of the county committee
claims to have had a conference with the
attorney general snd his assistants with
special reference to the Judicial ticket.
When selections for nomination were sent
to IJiicoln the democrats failed to file ac
ceptances and their names do not appear
on the. primary ballot. The party leaders
feel that a complete ticket will be stronger
than one with blanks upon It. but (cared
that they could not . fill vacancies left by
voters at the primary.
In this connection there Is some specula
tion as to what committee shall nil the
vacancies. Vnder the new law the nom
inees of the party nam the committee,
and tha democrats have no Judicial can
didates of their own before the people.
All the republican candidates endorsed by
tha democrats have promised to retire un
less they are also nominated by the re
publicans, but bhould any of them be
nominated by the republicans they will
also be the democratic candidates. Wh -a
they da this, under the new law, they alone
can nam a democratic Judicial commit
tee. Only af nons of the republican u-
dorsed by the democrats receive the re
publication nomination will the old Judi
cial committee hold over with power to
act. So If one such republican la nom
inated and accepts the democratic nom
ination he alone will be compelled to go
Into conforence with himself and name
the men to flu vacancies aa opponenta of
his associate on the republican ticket.
Incidentally the right of the democratic
county committee to select candidates for
Justices of tho peace and constables Is In
volved. In the matter of the Judicial can
didates an effort was made to nominate
candidates,, and for this reason It Is held
that the committee may fill vacancies.
Some court. decisions hold that where a
convention has made no effort to nominate
candidates and has not provided, fully
empowered, the committee, the committee
cannot fill such vaoancles, and under this
decision It Is held possible that no vacan
cies on any ticket not occurring after tha
primaries can be filled by the county com
mittee. An effort Is being made to oust one elec
tion officer In East Omaha precinct. A
resident of the precinct complained at the
office of the clerk of the district court
that one of the members of the official
board can neither read nor write English,
although this official has served for years,
because no one could 'he found to qualify.
But now another man, fully qualified,
wants the place and rallies the point. He
was given blank affidavits to have signed
and promised to do so in time for the dis
trict clerk to act.
"The Elks could never have a more effi
cient secretary than Frank A. Furay,"
declares a brother Klk. "Ho , keep ttU
books and records right up to the mark
all the time. I say, 1oo, that as county
treasurer he' can be depended on to show
how that office can be rim with sys
tematic precision and prompt accommo
dation of taxpayers that will lie ap
preciated by people who have business
with the office." ,
"Do you know whst oiiRht to be done
with the nmney gathered In from the as
sessment levied on Fontanelle candidates
as the price of their endorsement?"
"Why, they ought to chuck It In a pot
and use It to help Vlnaonhaler put it
"There la no use holillnar & nrim,m

" poimcian. "Tr.e Fontanelle bunch
claim that their endorsement carries with
It l.ftJO votes, and the Knuc! F.lghters say
they are equal to 1.800 votes for any can

their combined endorsements must have

JUDGE SUTTON'S CANDIDACY
Connell Opens Up and Cleans the Decks
for Further Action. . . '
OMAHA, Aug. 23.-To the Editor of The
Bee: An Invitation has been extended edi
torially to Judge Sutton to make use of
the columns of The Beo in defense of his
record, and to me has been accord-J the
privilege of setting forth the reasons why
he should not be re-elected. As stated by
The Bee, side Issues have been projected
Into Judge Sutton'a campaign for the pur
pose of Influencing voters. As further
stated by The Bee, it Is Judge Sutton who
is seeking re-election not Tom Dennlson.
Let us first get rid of these false Issues.
The case of Tom Dennlson was tried over
two years ago at Red Oak, where he re
ceived prompt acquittal and vindication
at the hands of an Iowa farmer Jury. If
any further vindication was necessary, he
received It recently at the hands of a
Douglas cqunty Jury, who gave him a
verdict of 17,600 as partial compensation for
the wicked libels published against htm by
the Dally News. Notwithstanding all thla
Is true, the Dally News na tho special
champion and supporter of Judge Sutton,
for the purpose of diverting attention from
hla record and creating a false sMo Issue,
charged Tom Dennison with entering Into a
conspiracy to defeat Sutton and with fixing
up a slate for the democrats.
Thla charge, as I personally know, wss
absolutely false. Tom Dennlson had noth
ing to do with making the democratic slate.
Neither had he been engaged In any com
bination or conrplracy to defeat Judge Sut
ton, but waa absent from Omaha In Colo
rado and Wyoming. The publication In the
News, however, accomplished the purpose
It had In view, of helping Button by fan
P'ng the flame of prejudice against Dennl
son, and tha false Issue thus crested wss
subsequently canie'd Into a number of the
country newspapers. Before these subse
quent publlca'.lo-n In the country news
papers were made. Tom Dennlson took to
the Dally News a denial of Its fuke Inter
view with htm. which It refused to publish.
So much for one of the false Issues
created for the special benefit cf Judge
Sutton. I will deal with others later on.
When viewed in a proper light, what differ
ence can It make whether Tom Dennlson
favors or opposes Judge Sutton? As a
matter of fact, he was urged to support
. him. Judge Sutton concluded he did not
want Demiison's support only when he
found out he could ni l tt It. The list of
seven Judges for whom I expect to vote will
Include Judge Day, Judge Redick and
Judge Kennedy. I presume Tom Dennlson
will also vote for some, If not all, of these
Judges. For that reason, or for the reason
that I will do so, will any person of fair
ness or Intelligence vote against them? If
not, why should ; any one vote for Judge
Sutton merely because Tom Dennlson hap
pens to oppose him. In fairness, ought
not Judse Sutton stand or all on his own
merits and not on the demerits. If any, of
Tom Dennlson? ; The Dally News in a
recent editorial said that Judge Sutton was
going to Btand en his record and not make
any fight. This is another of the side
track statements of the Dally News.
The fact Is, Judge Sutton Is making a
harder fight for re-election than all the
other Judges put together. Ho Is attending
very meeting to which he cin( get an
invitation and talking about the great
things which ho hos accomplished ss Judge.
In place of standing on his record, he If
running on his shape. He has had a big
lot of fine lithographed pictures made of
himself, regnrdh ss of cost, to be placed
In the churches and saloons, so that all
classes, the good and the bad. may gase
upon the only good and true Judge. That
every one so gazing may know a public"
officer Is hired man, ha appends his own
certificate that such Is his belief, etc.. etc.
The record of Judge Sutton, like his
picture. Is all show. It consists of "grsnd
stand plays." Th's will be demonstrated
In subsequent communications. For the
present, I only desire to clesr the deck' for
action. Actual facts and truthfull Inci
dents making up the real record of Judge
Sutton will be. given In my future con
tributions, W. J. CONNELU
I don't believe 'Uncle Bill' has forgotten
It. At any rate, some of his friends have
The Twelfth Ward. Republican club will
hold a mass meeting at Twenty-fourth
street and Ames avenue Saturday evening,
beginning at 8 o'clock. James C. Lindsay,
chairman, will preside and there will be a
number of speakers.
Deputy Clerk of tho District Court Galla
gher, who has returned from a trip to
Lincoln, reporta a peculiar condition in
that county from a political standpoint.
In the first place the clerk has not notified
the election officers to report for work aa
officers of the primary election, believing
that the law Itself is sufficient notice that
they are to serve and In the next place
the voting at the primary election will be
based upon the registration of that day.
The county officials are of the opinion
that In providing the same day for primar
ies as for registration the legislature in
tended that the previous registration
should not govern the matter of party
designation and other qualifications. In
Douglas county an exactly opposite opin
ion was rendered by the county attorney.
BINDERS WANT EIGHT HOURS

The bookbinders in the Omaha printing
shops threaten a ptrike If the demands
they expect to make at a conference to be
held early next week aro not acceded to by
the employers. They will demand the
eight-hour day and the closed shop, with
the same wages they get now. For two
weeks they have been asking for a con
ference, but have sgreed to await the re
turn of Samuel Reee of the Rees Prlntlrj
company, who has been In the east. Mr.
Rees Is said to have given them a promise
that the employers would meet them next
The contrsct of the bookbinders' union
with the employing printers expired last
spring and the bookbinders have been
threatening to strike ever s'.nee. The em
ployers declare they will grant neither of
the demands the binders propose to make.
There Is some talk also among the press
men of a strike, but no committee of the
union has waited on the employers and the
latter do not take much stock in strike
