Ttobert Smith, clerk of the district court,

was the worse for liquor. He telephoned
Clydo Sundblad, who lives not far from
the voting place. Commissioner Kugcl
also was notified. Sundblad and Kugel
reached the polling place shortly after 6
o'clock. The election board members
were making no progress. They were at
work, but to no purpose. The tally book
was blotted, evidently because the pages

blotting paper. Ballots were scattered
on the tables: some were on the floor
under the feet of the election officials.

some election offlolats of the precinct
were drunk. He said he didn't know of
his own knowledge whether they were
drunk or not.
Mr. Smith availed himself of tho op
portunity to expose the weakness of the
present system of naming election boards.
"No public official Is responsible for
the oharacter of the election officials."
he said. "The clerk of the district court
has to appoint them, but ho Is not freo
to appoint whom he chooses. If he were
probably he would secure capable men,
knowing that If there should be any
trouble he would be held responsible.
The clerk must make the appointments
from lists submitted to him by the po
litical committee chairman. He" cannot
go outside these lists. Many of these
names he doesn't know; he doesn't know
whether they aro capable, reliable men
or not. When the time comes that some
public official Is charged with the duty
of naming the election boards and Is given
an unrestricted choice of the citizens for
this work these troubles will be prac-
flcally unheard of."

Mr. McCarrlck of New York, who Is In

Mr. Preston, whose addra.s was made
early In the evening, spoke of the neces
sity of department co-operutlon If the
owners were to get the full value of their
money, both from the advertising and
from the clerk service. He pointed out
that an efficient clerk, one who kept
posted on the dally advertisements of
the store, would be able to sell goods
that were, not In his particular depart
ment, through being able to tell a custo
mer, who came to him, where certain
other bargains were being given at tho
time, lie would be able to drop a hint
about certain goods, on sale In another
part of the store, and Inform hts visitor
that these were really godd values, ob
taining, probably, only mr a short time.
Mr. Preston argued that co-operation
among the various departments among
their heads and their forces would bring
a higher degree of service, and at the
same time Increase tho efficiency and
selling power of the clerks many per
cent. He continued his remark's to ex
plain that no stoie received full value
from Its clerks unless these employes
had a wide range of knowledge regarding

Mr. Hoblnson, In a few remarks, told
the gathering that the, piano' business of
Orkln Brothers was ono of the largest
growing departments of the store und
that the saten In It ranked high among
those of any piano or department store
In the west. He also told of the scope
of tho present big and of the many
advantages It uttered to peTsons who

BIG TRAFFIC IN GRAIN AND
COAL NOW. SAYS BYRAM
Vice President nyram of the Burling
ton was In town between trains on his
way from Chicago to Lincoln, where he
has gone on a short visit with friends.
While here he stated that the car short-'
age continues without much prospect of
relief until the. time when the cars lined
up along the Atlantic coast loaded with
export stulf are released.
Mr. Byrom sees a large movement of
grain during the next few weeks and i
correspondingly large movement of roal.
but If the cars londed with export stuff
are held at coast points could be i-lean-d
the loads generally would havo
sufficient freight cars to take care of the
business, he says.
