(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, July 22 (Special.) Attorney
Jet.eral Thompson will represent Secretary
of State Junkln In the suit brought by
Victor Rotewatcr, republican nntlonal com
mitteeman, to prevent placing the names
of candidates on more than one ballot when
only one filing fe has been paid.
The legal department will argue that the
fee charged for filing refer only to the
office and not to the ballots. . For Instance,
the attorney general says the law is that
candidate for United State senator shall
pay a filing fee of $50. According to Mm It
makes no difference on how many ballots
the candidate's name appears, Just so ho
has paid the one 150.
In the office of the governor the hold
ing tls that the county treasurer has no
right to ask what office 'the candidate In
tel, ds to file for. If he. tenders his $10 to
file for governor Jt Is the duty W the
treasurer to give him a receipt for $10 and
the ballot on which he runs need not be
designated. Then the candidate' may pre
sent that receipt to the secretary of state
and have his name placed on as many bal
lots as he chooses.
A receipts was tendered by Rfr. Hitch-'
cock as a candidate on the peoples Inde
pendent psrty ticket, but It was not ac
cepted, the secretary acting under the
opinion of the attof general. This Is
taken to mean that i last Mr. Hitchcock
believed that the fa contemplated the
payment of a filing fee for- every ticket
upon the name of the - candidate was to
appear. Deputy Secretary of State Walt
this morning said that James P. Latta
had also tendered a receipt for filing fee
on the populist ticket and It was not ac
cepted. ' Mr. Thompson does not expect to file his
answer unll next Wednesday.
Treasurer Brian Ketnrna.
L. G. Brian, state treasurer has returned
fcvlth his family from a trip to Iowa, where
M 'visited relatives and pitched a little hay
In order to get In condition for the cam
pagn. Very shortly Mr. Bran wll go out
to Albon and make arrangements for the
construction of a new home on his farm
near that city as he expects to remove back
there when his term of office as tate treas
urer expires netx Januury.
After Patrick Votes.
Governor Shallenbergcr went to South
Omaha today to visit the Country club this
afternoon and deliver a speech to a Shal
lenberger democratic club tonight. Repre
sentative Krause of Albright has organised

the 8oldiers' home at MUford, spoke right

, "Patrick won't get twenty-five votes In
' South Omaha, and I'll bet $100 he won t get
100 votes in Sarpy county." ' ;- '
"Do I know Patrick?" "Well, I should
ay I do," snorted Colonel Rowden, repeat
l lng the question. "He knows ma, too, but
he don't speak to me alnce I fired him
out of the women's waiting room of the
Union Paclfio depot. I was employed by
tha secret service department of the Union
Paclfio and was at the Union station. Pat
rick and Judge Sutton went, Into the wonv
n's waiting room and began to smoke
cigars about a foot long. I touched them
on tha shoulder and ponlted to . the sign,
N Smoking.' Then I went out, thinking
they would follow me. I. looked back and
there they were smoking as big as life.,-1
fwent baek and told them it was against
the rules to smoke in there, ,
-'the rules to smoke in there."
" 'Who are your asked Sutton.
"I told him 1 was an officer and he said
o am I. . Then I : said so much the more
reason you should obey the law. Then
Z said it you are gentlemen you will get
out and If you don't get out' I will throw
you both out, Tou bet they ot out. But
ton afterwards apologised to me, but. Pat
rick ain't said nothing since to we. I'd

$1.50 to $7.50 Hats

Last year we sold every hat In the store.
Not an old one left when we started the present
season. We propose doing the same thing this
year. June let,-we had 410 dozen. Today we
have 39 10-12 dozen. We feel that the fairest
way to sell them Is at half price, rather than to
let the "wise" buyer pick the "plums" at a low
price and the "unwise" buyer pay within 6c or
10c of the regular all season price.
