most important primary ever held in

In this same primary all political
parties will indicate a preference for
United States senator, between whom
tbe voters will decide In November.
They will nominate candidates for
governor, and all the executive state
offices. They will nominate candi
dates .for congress. Tbey will noml
nate . complete legislative tlcketa.
They will nominate randldatea for
county attorney, assessor and com
missioner, and here In Omaha for
School board and Water board.
More places are to be filled, and
the ballot Is longer than ever before
In a primary election. It Is a severe
test on the voter, and tbe efficiency
of our election machinery; and re
turns will teacb many lessons.

' The Hatter of Patronage.
President Taft has reappointed tbe
collector of customs st Salem, Mass
who Is a rampant Roosevelt worker,
doing all he can for the colonel and
tterefore, against the president.
Some of th collector's friends had
assumed, aa bia term of office drew
near, tbat because of his radica
Koosevelt proclivities. President
Taft would decline to reappoint hi
but the president. It appears, had
taken no pains to ascertain what the
man's presidential preferences were
He was concerned only with knowing
the collector's fitness for tbe office,
snd bow well he bad conducted it.
That determined. It made no differ
enc to tbe big man In the White
House whether the collector admired
blm or Roosevelt the more.
And yet even Colonel Roosevelt,
himself, goes over th country de-
clsring tbat President Taft ia delib

originally known as th "big stick,'
to further bis campaign, and all the

that wants to know If bachelors know
what true love Is I will ssy, yes, they do
know. I aa sa Individual do not con-

Btsmsg aasuM be determined from a
business standpoint first, not necessarily
lov. Tat If It to determined thst they
are suned aa Ideal man and woman, they
else would be Meal husband and wife.
The aad only then would tru love come
Into effect. Love before man-life Is only
a mild oss of Insanity. It vanishes with

I called up the sheriff and was Informed
by his secretary that I could only reach

OMAHA. April J8.-TO the Editor of
the Bee: Malicious stories circulated for
campaign purposes have made It appear
that I had moved my goods and my fam
ily away from Omaha with the intention
of making my home elsewhere. Another
tory equally ridiculous Is thst only sfter
learning of my endorsement by the Ctrl
sens' union did I decide to return home
snd file for commissioner.
Ths fsct is that I seriously considered
becoming candidate before I sold my
interest in Klng-Swanson company and
my trip to tlie west was merely for a
much needed rest.
I have lived In Omaha for twenty-Xlve
yesrs and expect to remain as a cltisen
whether elected or defeated on May 7th.
To those wbo know me this statement Is
unnecessary, but to others I desire to
present my denial of tM truth of such
stories. I'nfortunstely a political cam
paign seems to develop many a gepiu
for falsification which induce some to
give such stories credence.
