LINCOLN. Neb., Aug. 17.-(Sneclal.)-The
splendid majority fur Will Hayward
In the First district and the good vole
that he received in Lancaster county, the
home of Ueorge Tobey, his competitor, hue
been generally discussed today and It la
looked upon a a decisive victory for de
cency against corruption and mud slinging,
as well as an endorsement of the national
This lust conclusion Is due to the work of
the ffpponent of Hayward, who Insisted
that he had been sent to Lancaster county
to run for congress as a vindication of the
administration. liayward hud the support
of the business men of IJncoln. who. In
their own automobiles, went out and
hustled for hlmj while they come out pub
licly and endorsed him In the press of
this city. ,
The large Vote given Mayor Dahlman
here is accounted for In several different
ways, In addition to it being an endorse
ment by tho people of Lincoln of the things
for which he stands. Shallenberger tried
to secure vot,es through his lieutenants cir
culating literature to tlie effect that a vote
for Lmhlman was a vote against Lincoln.
One very heavy taxpayer was approached
v. lib thin-argument and his reply was:
"I don't care If Dahlman haa already put
a mun on the dome of the capltol picking
.out the bricks, I Intend to cote for him In
Another factor that contributed to the
Dahlman -vote was Felix Newton. When
Newton was discharged from the Lincoln
asylum, where he was employed as book
keeper, because he filed charges against
Superintendent tWoodard, he announced
that he would get the scalp of the gov
ernor. So. Newton, like Cinclnnatus of old,
left his plow in the furrow on a homestead
In Wyoming and Journeyed to the great
capital of Nebraska and got busy. In his
home precinct with Bob Malone working
against him, Newi'on plied up 101 votes for
Dahlman, and Shallenberger got only
twentv-three. Bo tllat wa" not a"
this Outraged little Russian . did. He
went out to the asylum and the penitentiary.-
his old stamping ground, and
he permitted Shallenberger to get only
sixteen majority In the precinct There
are forty-nine voters remains mere who
are appointees of the governor, who only
received thirty-five v'otes.
Will Hayward cut into the vote that
would have gone for Dahlman, democrats
here are saying. They say the change of
sentiment for Hayward cost Dahlman sev
eral hundred. Borne democrats, who were
aroused at the dirty fight on Hay-ward,
line up fort him whjere before they had
been for Dahlman.
There -are others who say Dahlman's
vote waa a protest registered against the
policy of the city administration and the
bunch of people who have blackwashed
neighboring towns and taken It upon them
selves to dictate the policy of the state
generally. ' -
With jraotlcally the entire vote of the
cltf reported; fihsUii?rger has ; nt and
Dahlman 1,172, a lead for the Omaha man
of 558 votes. Shallenberger has reduced this
ga lie somewhat in. the country, receiving u
few .more votes than his competitor there.
In a total of forty-two praflncts already
eard from in Lancaster county the tolal
vote on democrat for governor Is 1,065 for
Shallenberger and 1.M9 for Dahlman, a lead
for Dahlman of 4M. Thus' Shallenberger
has gained almost a hundred Votes In the
. country1 precincts.
in seventeen cltv precincts the vote
stands: Aldrlch. 1,080; Cady, 0)1; Low, 116.
In thirty-eight precincts, country and city,
the vots Is: Aldrlch, l,7fl9; Cady, 935; Low,
Hayvrard Uakes Sweep.
With seventeen precincts heard from In
the city on the congressional contest Hay
ward leads Tobey by 199 votes, which lead
he Increases in the country precincts heard
from. All Indications point to his carrying
Lancaster county by 3G0 votes at least. In
thirty-six precincts, city and country. Tobey
has 1,184 votes. In thirty-seven precincts.
city and country, Hayward has 1,4!3 votes,
a lead of 838 votes. Tobey had expected to
carry Lancaster county substantially, and
tl that Hayward, had hoped to do was to

OiBUKftt AuJlliS HILLING
rremont Painter Writes Confession
Behind Bars of Jail.
SAYS PEDDLAR HIT
Clrenmatanrra of Attack May Lead
C'oanty Attorney to l.odue
Charge of Manslaughter
FREMONT. Neb., Aug. 17.-(8peclal Tel
egram. )After two hours alone In his cell
with pencil and paper, George Osborne,
the Blair painter arrested In connection
with the murder of John Hoctor in the
local railroad yrads last Saturday, passed
through the bars to Sheriff Hauman a com
plete confession of the crime with which
he was charged.
Osborne s confession came after an ex
amination at the hands of County Attorney
Cook and Sheriff Bauman. The officers
showed Osborne the futility o fattempting
to deny the crime In the face of a mass
of circumstantial evidence connecting him
with It. Osborne declares that lmporper
proposals on the part of the murdered
peddler led him to commit the deed.
In the light of circumstances surround
ing the case It Is possible that County At
torney Cook will not make a charge of
murder in the first degree but of man
slaughter. Osborne's memory, which was
obligingly clouded (luring the preliminary
questioning Sunday and Monday, gradually
returned to him yesterday. The officers
were elbseted with Mm nearly all the fore
noon today, and he finally admitted clearly
having trouble with a man Friday night
owards noon he seemed on the point of
confessing and finally he asked for a sheet
of paper and a pencil.
Hands Out Confession.
These were handled him and he was left
lone for two hours at his own request
When Sheriff Bauman returned at the end
of that time Osborne handed him the writ
Osborne says he met John Hoctor on the
treet Friday, that they secured some liquor
and went down to the yards to sleep. While
there the peddler attacked him and, Osborne
says, "grabbed me around the neck. 1
fought him loofe and he got mad and
started after me with his cane. I ran
around the lumber pile and picked up an
Iron bar. When I got back he asked me
to drink some more and I did. Pretty goon
he grabbed me again. I was crazy drunk,
and I pushed him away and hit him over
the head with the bar. He fell down and
I stood over him and hit him once or twice
more. I don't remember how many times.
Then I started up the street toward town."
Osborne then goes on to tell how he went
down to the depot and caught a freight
train for Blair, where he went to his home.
His story agrees materially with the
statement made before his confession, save
only In Its relation to the crime Itself.
This afternoon Sheriff Bauman and County
Attorney Cook took Osborne to the scene
of the crime. There Osborne went over
again his actions of Friday night, showing
In detail how the crime was committed.
Believe Ho Tells Truth.
His testimony conforms to the evidence
given by witnesses at the inquest in all
details, and the authorities nave no qoudi
but that he wrote thetruth of the affair.
Evidence of Hoctor's character had already
come to them through other sources. s Sus
picion was first directed towards Osborne
when a clerk in the-Brunswick restaurant
told of overhearing conversation between
him and Hoctor. When arrested Osborne
denied even having met either, the clerk
or Hoctor. This denial. In the face of good
evidence to the oontrary, merely strength
ened the suspicions of the officers.
Poker Game May
Be Valuable Clue
Man Murdered in Phelps County May
Have Been Killed by Losers
HOLDREGE, Neb., Aug. 17. (Special.)
The search for a clue to the parties wno
gagged and bound Frank Swanson to his
barn early last Friday morning and then
robbed him and burned his house has con
tinued with little success. Swanson, accord
ing to those who know him well is fond of
poker. Thts. says a county official,
may be the basis for gaining some headway
In the Investigation. About three weeks
ago Swanson and his neighbor had two
hoboes working for them. The two, who
were pals, after having worked for the
farmers some time, had each amassed a
considerable sum of money. They had fin
ished harvesting and were nwl'Jng prepara
tions to move on when Swanson and one of
his friends Inveighled them into a game of
poker. This proved to be their Waterloo,
and in a few hours the hoboes had lost
every cent which they had earned in the
weeks previous. It Is said, by those who
related this story to the local county off!
clals, that the tramps left Swanson's place
the next morning with no great love in their
hearts for the proprietor. That they were
vindictive enough to return and try to
regain their lost money and then to spite
fully set fire to Swanson's house does not
seem at all improbable. The bloodhounds
followed a trail next day after the double
crime to the railroad track at Funk. There
It is possible that the' hoboes may have
made their escape, as a freight train which
had aided for an eastbound passenger train
left the Funk yards about an hour after
Swanson's house u discovered to be on

Automobiles and Chautauqua.
MINDEN, Aug. 17. (Special.) The Mln
den Chautauqua closed last night after the
most successful session ever held in Mln
den. This was contributed largely by the
fact that farmers from every part of the
county could attend, doing so both after
noon and evening in their automobiles. By
actual count as many as fifty touring cars
surrounded the public square in the even
ing. This feature ibt the automobile has
not been considered, by those who oppose
Its use. It eliminates distance of the farm
from the city and gives to the farmer the
advantages of the chautauque and like edu
cational and social opportunities. .

FOOT BALL REVOLUTIONIZED
New Bales Announced Designed to
QUARTERS INSTEAD OF HALVES
Klylna; Tackle Abolished Forward
1'asa May Be Made Only by
Player When Back of Line
NEW YORK, Aug. 17.-After labor, last
ing nearly all summer, the foot ball rules
committee today made public the rules
which are to govern the course of the game
during the season of 1910. Changes adopted
are revolutionary In character and calcu
lated to minimize greatly the (lunger of
fatal accidents existing under the old rules.
For one thing the time of play Is divided
into four periods of fifteen minutes each
Instead of two thlrty-flve-minute halves.
The usual intermission of tlfteen minutes
is maintained between the Becond and third
periods, but an Intermission of three min
utes only. Is allowed between the first and
second and third and fourth periods. Dur
ing this short Intermission no player will
be allowed to leave the field nor will any
one be permitted to come on the field, Bave
only the tratnci.
At the beglnnnig of the second and fourth
periods the teams change goals, but the
down, the relative spot on the down, the
possession of the ball and the distance to
be gained remain as they were at the con
clusion of the preceding period' of play.
Another radical change is that governing
the flying tackle. This has been entirely
eliminated by a new ruling which provides
that a player must have at least one foot
on the ground when tackling.
Forward Pass Chana-ed.
This year's rules provide that a player Is
qualified to make a forward 'pass only
when he is at least one yard back of his
own line of scrimmage or occupies the posi
tion on the end of the' line. No man may
make a forward pass or kick the ball unless
he Is five yars back of the line of scrim
mage. The, territory forward of the line
of scrimmage and consequently in ' the
enemy's camp is adjudged neutral for a dis
tance of twenty yards .pending the com
pletion of a forward pass or kick. A for
ward pass is not legal if the ball crosses
a line twenty yards in advance Of (he spot
where it' was put in play before touching
the ground or a player.
In the case of a kick the players on the
defense within the twenty-yard sons must
not interfere with the ends or other players
In any way until their opponents have ad
vanced twenty yards beyond the line of
Interlocked Interference Abolished.
Interlocked interference, that is, players
of the side having the ball taking hold of
each other, or using their hands or arms to
grasp their tern mates in any way, Is for
bidden and It is also forbidden for any man
