Judicial ttaW evidently 1 not over
plentiful In this district. If the talk about
poarlbl candidates on ths judicial ticket
at this iUi e-f the proceedings Is any
Indication. There ars three places on the
supreme bench to be filled next November,
but no one has appeared In Douglas county
who thinks he would like to make a try
Several Judges on the district bench are
known to harbor aspirations for promotion,
but all of them are going on the theory that
"a bird In the hand Is worth two In the
bush." and will try to keep their present
places by seeking renomlnatlon and re
election. That start the list of republican
entries off with seven in a bunch, namely:
George A. Day. Lee Estelle, Howard Ken
nedy, W. A. Redlck. Willis O. Bears, A. L.
Sutton and A. C. Troup.
The sitting Judges are not to have a walk
away, for three or four competitors are al
ready in view. Judgo C. T. Dickinson,
who has had service on the district bench,
expects to present his name again and
County Judge Charles Leslie Is an an
nounced candidate for a place on the dis
trict bench. Judge W. A. Foster, who was
for many years a Justice of the peace, and
has more lately been chief deputy in the
sheriff's office, and was a candidate four
years ago. Is considering filing, and some
of the friends of A. C. Pancoast of South
Omaha likewise think they see in him suit
able judicial timber.
The judicial district which formerly con
sisted of Sarpy, Douglas. Washington and
Burt (Sountles, was changed by the last
legislature by cutting off Sarpy county,
normally democratic, thus leaving the dis
trict more republican than ever, and In ad
dition reducing tho area over which the
canvass Is to be made. The politicians
count the republican Judicial ticket a win
ner, and the nomination equal to an elec
tion, which fact Is expected to bring still
more entries Into the field.

after which. If she wanted a little
change of outlook or a breath of
fresh air she must seek the streets,

our new building she can now find
a clean, wholesome, warm, midday
lunch, after which she may either
go Into the gymnasium for a little
physical exercise, or she may pass
a quiet hour In the large and spa

rest room, or enjoy a book or maga

appointments. For two- 'years the com

for a sucker. When Brunlng retired and
two more democrats came In, the third
place went to O'Connor, whose hunger was
appeased with less pie even than Brunlng'a.
Although Elsasser was elected as a demo
