Without our knowledge or consent the landlord has
leased our buildings to other parties, and virtually forced
us out of business, we have searched in vain for a new
location in the retail center, and now that we are forced
to quit we will make a quick job of it, by selling our
stock at the biggest bargain prices ever offered the public.
It's strange how many men want to pay just fifteen dollars for a
suit of clothes. No More, and No Less. It's for this reason we al
ways spread ourselves on our fifteen dollar lines, and this season we
are showing the

Text of the Derision.
The decision of the board was presented
in writing us follows:
In the matter of the request of Con
testant Crosby coming on for hearing upon
the counting of three certain ballots not
being endorsed as provided by. law by either
a Judge or a clerk of election and upon
ihie consideration thereof, it is the opinion
of the board that the former ruling of
the board should be adhered to, and t ho
ballots be not counted, for the following
res sons :
First That section 9 of the primary law
provides that the slgnxturcs of at least one
Judge and one clerk of election should ap
pear on the back of the ballot.
Second That it appears by section 38 of
primary law that upon any point upon
which the primary liiw ahouifi be de
ficient and not fully covered, the general
e Hon laws of the state should control.
TTiTrd That section ljl of the general
election law provides that ballots not prop
erly endorsed by two Judges should not be
counted. This provision, however, is modi
fled by section I of the primary law which
permits ballots to be counted having but
ths name of a Judge or clerk endorsed on
the back thereof.
Fourth That paragraph 3. section 159 of
the general election law, provides that bal
lots shall be so folded by the" elector as
to expose on the back thereof the en
dorsements ot toe names or tne juuges of
Fifth The count v attorney of Douglas

Sixth The board, having on counting the
ballots ot all the precincts In Iouglaa
county, uniformly held that ballots not en
dorsed by at least one Judge or cierK ot
the election board should not be counted.
It Is therefore the judgment of this bosrd
that ssid request to count the said IKree
ballots be denied and the same nn counted.

WATER COMPANY SAYS NO
Refuses to Make Showing- on Record
of Earnings to the
Refusing to make any showing regarding
its earnings and .expenditures as a basis
for the fixing of water rates, officials of
the Omaha Water company declined to be
present at the meeting of the Waer board
Friday afternoon. President Woodbury
sent a letter to the board and this was read
by the secretary, the board adjourning im
mediately afterwards to meet the first
Wednesday In October.
At Ita last meeting, the board requested
of the company that it furnish the board
with copies of Its records showing the
amount of Its earnings together with its
expenditures in the cities of Omaha, South
Omaha and Florence. This was desired so
rhat the board would have a basis on
which to fix rates. Since the company re
fused to make the showing. John L. Web
ster, one of the attorneys for the board,
ays that it will have to gather facts the
best it can and make rates of Its own
motion and without the consulting advice
of the company's officials.
The letter from President Woodbury is.
in part, as follows:
Inasmuch as the Water company adheres
to the views of its contract rights and obli
gations expressed In its statement delivered
to the Water hoard at the meeting of Au
gust 29, 18. the company can see no good
reason why It should appear before the
Mater board on September X, ln jnit
since the company can neither assert to the
assumptions contained in the recitals on
which the orders and resolutions are ba'ed
nor admit the validity of any of the orders
which relate to ths company. Its f i am-liUe
contract rights or business, the company
must decline to present to the Water
bosrd any of the Information requested.
The letter was written from New York

Fred H. Cosgrove, for fourteen years a
leader and one time president of the Jack
sonians, Is about to desert their rutiks and
cast his lot with the Jimocrats, or the
Dahlman democracy, the ancient enemy.
This disturbance in local politics takes
rank with the Hearst bomb recently ex
ploded In the national camp of democracy.
Mr. Cosgrove Is disgusted because the
Jacks, for whom he has done everything
but wade In blood, repudiated him at the
recent primary. He has been bidden by
such prominent Jims as Joe Butler and
John Mahoney to come Into their house and
not one Jack grabbed hold of him to pre
vent his going.
But the strongest invitation for Cos
grove came in the form of Jim's demand
that Ed Berryman get off the Park board.
It was this way: Ed Berryman was cred
ited by the Jacks with fixing up the slate
at the primary election on which sUtc
Cosgrove and the rest went down to de
feat. Then after election Berryman, they
say, tried to get from under the onus of
responsibility and shift It to his friend
Cosgrove. That simply set the amiable
Cosgrove on fire, and when he heard that
the Jims had demanded that Berryman
take his choice between resigning and be
Ing kicked off the Park board, he shouted,
"Hurrah for the Jims," and got ready to
Jims Are Nobody.
Incidentally Mr. Berrytnun hu3 managed
to show himself somewhat of a humorist
In this Jim controversy. Asked the other
day If he would accede to the request that
he resign, he said, with the most bland
look on his face:
' Nobody has asked me to resign yet."
lie was reminded that the Jimocrats had
asked it in their most characteristic style
"Ha, ha," he laughed heartily, "yes,
but I said nobody hud asked mo to re
sign." "We'll show this Bilk stocking whether
we are nobody or riot," shouts big Jim
Meantime sweet and dulcet harmony con
tinues to da-ell In the house of local democ
racy. "I do not want to appear disgruntled,"
said Mr. Cosgrove, " but I feel that I have
nothing in common with the Jacksonian
club, that my friends belong to the other
organization, that they -can be better de
pended upon, and that the Jimsonslans
can do more real good for democracy than
the Jacksov.:ans. The 'Jacks' are virtually
dead, while the 'Jims' are 'live ones.' I
have always been a fighter and admire a
fighter. The Dahlman Democracy club
has shown Itself to be a fighting organisa
tion. I am out ot politics and for that rea
son it makes little difference whether I be
long to a political club or not, but I am
considering Joining the Dahlmanltes and
resigning from the Jacksonlans."
Welcome to Oar Midst.
Trestdent Thomas J. Flynn of the Dahl
man Democracy was overjoyed when he
mas told that Fred Cosgrove was consider
ing Joining the club and said that he would
like to see him taken Into membership by
unanimous vote of the entire organization.
"Nothing would please me inorw than to
see Frederick 11. Cosgrove- become a mem
ber of the Dahlman Democracy." said
President Flynn. "and If bo should decide
to put In an application I will tell the boys
so. and I believe the application would go
through a whooi'lng."
