LINCOLN. Aug. 7 (Special Telegram.)
At the suggestion of W. R. Patrick, a
speaker at the Epworth assembly this aft
ernoon, the assembly adopted a motion to
request Governor Shallenberger to remind
the attorney general to begin proceeding!"
to oust the mayor of Omaha and the mem
bers of the Board of Fire and Police Com
missioners from office, because they have
failed to revoke the license of an Omaha
saloon-keeper who was convicted of selln.g
liquor after S o'clock at night.
The motion to adopt the resolution was
made by Senator Patrick at the conclusion
of a speech in which he said the brewers
and corporations had admitted they spent
130.000 to defeat him for election to the stato
senate and that on the day of election they
had twenty-five paid workers at the polls
In his home precinct working against him.
Senator Patrick was defeated by Alex Lav
erty of Saunders county.
Judge Fawcett Endorsed.
Just before his resolution was adopted,
Mr. Patrick announced that the executive
committee of the Nebraska Temperance
union had passed a resolution endorsing thi
candidacy of Judge Jacob Fawcett for su
preme Judge. The assembly then promptly
voted unanimously to adopt that report.
When the motion was put to request the
governor to take action against the Omaha
mayor and the Board of Fire and Police
Commissioners. Chairman Metcalfe askcu
for a rising vote, and the great majority
of the audience stood, including ex
Governor Sheldon, who had experience wllu
requests to discharge police commissioners.
In his talk preliminary to the Introduc
tion of the motions,' Senator Patrick said
he had ben working for ten or twelve
years against the liquor Interests and he
waa glad now to see so many others get
ting Into the fight with him. He had al
ways been successful, he said, against
the brewers until they tied up with all the
corporations In Omaha and had caused
his defeat by the expenditure of 130.000.
The remainder of the speech consisted of
a denunciation of the city of Omaha,
Mayor Dahlman, and a charge that the
press of the state does not attempt to
snow up the magnitude of the influence
of the liquor Interests.
Sheldon for Resolution.
In a short speech ex-Governor Sheldon re
peated his stand for state-wide prohibition
with a proviso that when three-fifths of
a community voted In favor of saloons,
that community should have Its saloons.
"Make the state dry," he said, "all
over, and then let the saloons break In.
It is easier to get out when you are In
than It is to get In when you are out." The
ex-governor created some applause when
he announced that he was In favor of tem
perance, and when the temperance forces
decided what they wanted to do, he would
fight with them.

Notwithstanding tne law In plain In the
matter, and the secretary of state has
sent out letters of Instruction with his
sample ballots, he Is having all kinds of
trouble with the county clerks oxer the
printing of the primary election ballots.
The secretary Instructed the county clerks
to have as many changes tn the ballots
as there are voting precincts In the county.
That Is, the names should be rotated that
many times. He also Instructed the clerks
that the names of candidates for state
offices should be rotated. '
Some of the clerks have paid no atten
tion to the basis of rotation as fixed by
the legislature, but have divided the num
ber of ballots by the number of candidates,
and placed eaj-h name at the top of tho
ballot as many times as the figure given
by the division. The law provides, as In
terpreted by the secretary of state, that
John Smith's name shall be at the top
of the ballot In precinct No. 1; John
Jones' name at the top In precinct No. li,
and so on. Should there be sixteen pre
cincts In the county, every candidate for
supreme Judge on the republican ticket
a 111 have his name at the head of the
ballot In two precincts In that county.
It will frequently happen that one can
didate may have his name at the top of
! the ballot In three precincts, while the
! other candidates will be at the top In only
two precincts, but the secretary of state
says that Is the plain law.
The county clerk of Johnson county was
here today to see the secretary of state
to get .straightened out In the matter.
He brought his ballots to Lincoln to get
One or two county clerks have Insisted
to the secretary of state that the names
of the state candidates should not be ro
tated, and It Is possible some of the coun
ties will have ballots upou which the
names of state candidates are not rotated.
Mill Hear County Officials. .
The State Board o( Equalization will
listen Monday to county officials who(ob
Ject to Increases on certain classes of prop
erty In their counties. At that meeting
of the board there will be present Land
Commissioner Cowles, Secretary of State
Junkln and possibly Governor Shallen
berger, should he happen to be here on
that date. '..
The levy cannot be made probably for
tome time after that because the governor
goes away August 11 to Seattle, the state
treasurer will not return until the middle
of the week and the auditor the latter
part of the week.
In the meantime the state board has
discovered a proposition in a law enacted
by the late aggregation of nonpartisan
democrats in which It can see little good
or bad for that matter. It Is found In
S. F. M, by Fuller of Seward. This gentle
man attempted to get passed a law which
would prevent the state board from raisins,
valuations reported by the county assessors,
but the legislators finally lost their nerve
and changed the law to provide that In
1911 and every to years thereafter the
county boards, shall equalise the value of
real estate. Under the old law. which U
not changed, real estate Is assessed In
1904 and every four years thereafter. So
real estate will be equalised by county
boards tn 1911. it will be assessed In 1912.
