LINCOLN. Aug. 30 (Special.) Be
cause the canvassing board of Douglas
county tied a string on Us returns to the
slate board, the ' secretary of state was
Instructed 'by the hoard to secure an ab

pasted on the abstract.
"That was probably put on there at the

said . Mayor Dahlmnn, when Treasurer
"If I were sure that rider on the Douglas

would be In favor of canvassing the vote

But because of that rider and protests
from Governor Shajlenbcrger and Attorney

Valentine's Old Source of Supply
Crashes to Ground New Structure
VALENTINE, Neb., Aug. 30.-(Special
Telegram.) The city water tank collapsed
last night, making a crash like an earth
quake. The rush of water from the bursted
tank formed a small wave that did con
siderable damage to buildings close to the
tank. The Shaw gallery south, and almost
under the tank, waa almost completely
wrecked, but no one was In It, having been
wurned. The rush of water slightly moved
the Jennings studio north across the street
about a foot off the foundation, and broke
some poles In the side of the building.
The old tank has been leaning for some
time and the street hss been fenced off
for several weeks to keep people away from
It. Fortunately no one was hurt. Work
was begun Immediately to remove the
wreckage. Water Is being pumped direct
Into the mains, so no one will be without
water. The new steel tank on top of. the
hill north of town Is about half completed
and work la being pushed to complete It.

shortly before 10 o'clock and refused to
come back while-Governor Shallenberger
came to I)1 office shortly before U and
remained there, refusing to attend the
i meeting for the reason he sent word, that
I he did not , car to attend . the meeting
unless the full membership was present.
Mr. Thompson's excuse was that he was
1 buMy packing his household effects pre
paratory to renting his home. Mr. Barton,
; the fifth member of . the board, was at
' Valentine. '
Mr. Brian and Mr. Junkln finally secured
' the promise of the governor and attorney
general to attend a meeting during the
: afternoon after threatening .to canvass the
vote .without a quorom being present.
At the afternoon meeting two hours or
moie was devoted to a wrangle over the
rights of the board and of Governor Shal
' lcr.berger. , Attorney' John Rlne for Mayor
Dahlman, Insisted that the law provided
' fur (to , recount on state officers at the
pr imary ' election and that even If the re
count had been provided for the proper
plao to have filed the affidavits would
have been wtthv state " boardt lie In
sisted thai Governor Shallenberger could
not halve known, whether he was nomt-
nated r not, when he sent out bis affi
davits ' to the various county canvassing
beards and he could not havu known
, whether the change thut might have been
I jade In one county would have changed
trie result of the election. Therefore, If re
count waa permissible, the proper place
I to secure relief was the state board. He
Insisted that It was the daty of the can
, vasslng board to canvass the abstracts of
the votes as sent In by the canvassing
board and Issue the certificate of nomina
tion to ine canuiaaie receiving uie nigu'
, est vote.
Uaotes Attorney General.
Arthur Mullen, speaking for Governor
' Shallenberger, insisted that the governor
had acted legally, when he appealed to the
county boards. In support of his conten
tion he quoted the attorney general who
had held that the county board had a right
to recount the votes.
Mr. Thompson was called upon to state
his position and he said that when the
Question' had been first put to him, he gave
bis decision without having looked Into the
' rights of the state and county boards. He
admitted that the Jaw was ubject to a
different construction from that which he
put upon it
There were several passages at arms be
tween Brian and Junkln on the one side
and : Sliallenberger and Thompson on the
other, while Mayor Dahlman and Governor
Shallenberger gave evidence that there has
grown up between them some little feel
ing.. , .. .. .i
Uovrnor Bhallenberger insisted that tha
board should take no action until the re
count from Douglas county had been re
ceived nd In that position he was upheld
by the attorney genual, while Brian and
Junkin Insisted that the board could not
. adjourn over five days. The governor In
sisted thai Douglas county could not make
Us recount In five days.
"Then Mayor Dahlman was called on to
"it the board connot legally adjourn for
trior than five days, then let the governor
pick out as many precinct In Douglas
county as can be recounted In five days
ad turn them Into the board. Then if
then riosen or so precincts show that there
Is going to be any material changes, the
board (an take such' action as it desires.
The governor charges thut a recount In
Dounglas county will show so many
changes, he should Itnow what precincts
fraud wait committed In. He had his own
election boards and lie had his challengers
and , his men at every voting precinct In
Douglas county. The counting of the vote
wsa made publicly and not a single objec

Omaha's newest theater, the American
Music Hall, opened Its door to the public
Monday, and may now be considered to

All the attendant circumstances of a first
night were noticeable, at well as the estab
lished feature of a dedication. The audi
ence that assembled was one that any
manager might feel proud to have in his
theater; the mayor made a short address.
and the show went on. It was a good
show, too, a bill of varied attractions, with
only light and music and gay colors and
twinkling feet to distract. Applause was
plenty, and laughter, and the audience
watched the final curtain, satisfied that
the latest of the playhouse of the city had
Justified Its establishment.
Theater Beautiful and Comfortable
The theater 1 very beautiful as well as
comfortable. It Is constructed according
to the latest Ideas in theater building, with
view to the comfort of the patrons as
well as to the profitable conduct of Its busl
nes. It seats are roomy, Its aisle are
spacious. It exits are many,' and Its stair
ways are easy. The line of vision from
any part of the house Is uninterrupted, so
that one seat is a good as another, from
the point of view, while the acoustics have
proven most excellent Sound carries well
In the house, and no actor will ever have
occasion to complain that he cannot get
his voice "over" if he will use it properly.
The decoration scheme is simple, tasty and
artistic. It is notable, -perhaps, for the ab-sflrK-e
of florid display, the shade of olive,
drab and bronze blending most harmoni
ously, while the mural decoration are in
keeping. All through it fs marked by that
note of quiet elegance which Is so much
a part of the better class of modern thea
ters, and which goes so far toward estab
lishing the patron In the right mental atti
tude to enjoy whatever Is set out on the
stage. Even the program partake of this
quality, and is in keeping with the general
scheme of luxurious comfort the American
Music Hall here affords.
Scene an Inspiration.
It would have done the spirits of some
of the pioneers much good If they could
have been permitted to view the scene at
Eighteenth and Douglasstreets last night.
One may Imagine the astonishment of the
resident of not so many year ago at the
spectacle of dozen on dozens of automo
bile parked, where once the ox team slowly
dragged Its cart on the way to the Golden
West; the sight of a multitude of well
dressed people thronging the sidewalks, and
slowly disappearing through the brilliantly
lighted entrance of a beautiful modern
theater, where once the shaggy haired man
from the mountain. or jthe lean and ragged
red man looked down on the straggling vil
lage, and wondered at the Intrusion of civi
lization. It was a sight novel even for the
present day resident of the city, long ac
customed to seeing theater crowds gather
in another part of the city, while the pres
ent location wa thought to be well out of
the district where a theater might thrive.
The locution of the new music hall is in
Itself a striking proof of the growth and
development of the ' city; the area over
which city life Is found ha expanded, and
Eighteenth and Douglas is not nearly so far
removed from the tide of traffic a was
Seventeenth and Harney, when Governor
Boyd located his theater there nineteen
years ago. And so the gathering last night
at the opening Is significant in more than
on way of the Importance of life In Omaha,
both social and commercial.
What the Mayor Said.
Mayor Dahlman'a address wa mercifully
brief. He ha heard the sound of his own
voice frequently during the last few weeks,
and wlfl hear It again. So, when he had
waited for the applause of genuine enthus
lasm that greeted hi appearance to quiet
down, and had answered the acclaim of
an ardent admirer, who hailed him from
the gallery a "governor," by laying, "Not
until January next," he spoke simply of
the new theater and Its purposes. To the
Messrs. Brandel he paid a deserved tribute,
speaking of their enterprise and liberality in
building up the city, referring to the great
service they had done the community by
the construction of Imressive' business
blocks, and the building of two magnificent
theaters, and prophesied that such efforts
would result In making Omaha the most
populous and important of all the cities In
the great central west For the Vllllam
Morris management he spoke a good word,
and expressed th hope that they would
find their ventures here and elsewhere
crowned by success.

ular are little more than children. The
youngest one who plays a part with a

wears bound tightly around her wavy locks
and streaming behind like a banner. Just
why this Is a morning garb no masculine
mind could understand, but it is explained
in a general way by the fact that the mak
ing of a coiffure Is expensive and time-
consuming, and when it Is once done it is
preserved as long as possible.
