rumored that Mr. Howe I to be manager
of the new plant.
Armour It Co. have been contemplating
building in the Argentine for some time
and the schema haa been worked out on a
gigantic scale. Ore of the biggest move
In that direction was the election of Sam

The nullification of the plan for publicity

figure to the state committee.
"This contribution waa sent to the com

of course," said Judge Sullivan. "I may
say that I am not familiar with tha terms
of the law that now governs campaign
funds, because I have given it no attention.
I am not a candidate by my own seeking
and am really indifferent a to the result

Pol ate to ftpeeifle Caae Where Kaaal
Diphtheria Proved Fatal Day
After Esaaalaea by tha
Health Commissioner Connell Is losing
patience with the critic of hi course In
the matter of quarantining for diphtheria.
'It Is every whit as distasteful to me to
quarantine thee folks a It I to them to
be quarantined," he ays. "Wherever pos
sible to Isolate the afflicted person, with
the nurse, without endangering the health
of the rest of the family, w permit tie
wage earners to go about their usual occu
pations. Neither do we keep anyone under
quarantine any longer than Is absolutely
necessary, but we cannot release them
hlle culture after culture hows positive.
As an example, there Is one block the 909
block on North Twenty-fifth street In
which there are six house quarantined, all
on the same side of the street. With thla
fact before our eye, can anyone (till Insist

Take the Saunder school as an example.
It ha been stated In Th Bee that the
twenty-seven posit I v cae taken from
among the 400 pupil In that school re
sulted from contamination brought In by
the five children of one family, wherein
there waa originally but one child affected.
Duration of quarantine cannot be
exactly regulated as to day or hour. We
must be on the alert as long as culture
taken by ourselves or the family physician
show positive. There la In New Tork a
noted case of typhoid infection, where a
woman haa been under quarantine for
two year and is still held; and yet she
never had typhoid fever.
Some of these doubters should talk to
Attorney Charles Battelle, whose brother
died from nasal diphtheria the day after he
had been examined by an Omaha physician,
to whom he was brought too late for any
thing to be don to save him.
'Th danger la Just there. Th children
afflicted with this form of diphtheria are
not sick, apparently, and their condition
excites little or no worry. Neglect is the
great thing to be guarded against, since
every ' time they breathe, or sneese, or
blow " their nose, they scatter the germs

Verdict of Coroner's Inquest Juit How
Received Opposing Theory
Tolf Hanson came to hi death by acci
dent and not a a suicide, according to the
verdict of the New Tork coroner' Jury,
which haa Just passed upon the case.
E. F. Leary, trustee In bankruptcy for
th Hanson creditors, has this word from
the east, with further statements that the
evidence at the Inquest showed that If
Hanson did contemplate suicide he made
singularly few preparations in the lodging
house room where he died. ,
The evidence at the Inquest showed that
he had not plugged up any of the cracks
In the door, and more than this, that one
of the window was left partially open,
Practically everyone In Omaha haa be
lieved that Hanson took his own life be
cause of the circumstance of death by
asphyxiation, of his long nl-sence from th
ken of hi friends and of his highly In
volved financial affair and hopeless debt.
