MNCOL.N, May 7.-(8peclal.)-The dry
forces and the Municipal Ownership
league of Lincoln arc wondering this
morning what hit them yesterday. After
putting up one of the hardest and sup.
posedly most thorough fights In the his
tory of the city, the municipal league
comes out of the fight with only one
candidate to the good and he wins by
only a small majority over his next con
testant below, Representative Mockett.
The majority in favor of saloons for
the coming year Is about 831. Two years
ago, when the last fight wns mode, the
wet policy won by 605 The three wet
candidates for members of the Excise
board, Harry Porter, Will Jove 'and
Nicholas Ress, have majorities ranging
around the 1.000 mark.
The business men's candidates for
places on the commission under the new
charter, Dayton, Henbley, Schroeder and
Zehrung, won easily with- majorities
ranging around 800, while O. J. King, one
of the candidates of tt)e Municipal Own
ership league, was the fifth man, with a
vote over Mockett of 203.
In the selection of departments over
which the successful candidate will pre
side, Zehrung will probably have charge
of the executive branch. King of the
police department, Schroeder of the
'water department, llensley of the streets
nnd Dayton of the financial department
Dayton Is the present city treasurer,
while Schroeder and Hansley, as mem
bers of the' out-going council, will hare
charge of the water and street depart
ments, with which they have looked
nfter, while members of tho council.
The reason for the town going so
Btrongjy against the municipal ownership
league candidates, Is laid to the fact
that the fight was carried on to such
an extent that It became obnoxious to
many, whllo a dry advocate lays the
result to the saloon fight to too much
activity on tho part of the evangelist,
who sold he "proposed to stay In Lin
coln until he made the town dry."
The butting In of outsiders, who made
b. general attack on the morality of the
city had something to do with It, ac
cording to many, while the Saturday
night dry meeting, in whlcT affidavits
from prostitutes containing language of
nn Indecent aharacter were read before
a mixed audience composed of many
young people of both sexes, is also
claimed to have done the dry cause much

date who desires appointment. First, he
must be a good man; second, he must
not have mixed too closely in 'Douglas

tho requirements, nnd who should know-

Insurance bill that peiple need to worry
In speaking of the city tltetlon yester
day In Lincoln, the Red Willow states
man said he thought that tho mutter of
removal of the. state university had prac
tically been settled by Lincoln giving
such a strong majority for the saloons.
"It means that Lincoln people have by
a very strong argument, which cannot
be controverted, said that thoy prefer
the saloon to the uplvcrslty," said the
senntor, "nnd tho people of the statf.
looking upon the matter in that light,
will speak In no uncertain language when
they get a chance to express their prefer
ence at the polls at tho next general elec
tion when they will vote upon the propo
sition of removal to the state farm.
Continuing he said; "1 have found only
one man since I returned .to my "homo
who Is opposed to removal. Ho tukes a
certain democratic paper published in
Lincoln and has been reading some of tho
stuff published therein about what It will
cost to move the university to tho farm,
and Is opposed to spending 3,000,000 for
the removal. As soon ns ho gained a
clearer knowledge of tho real conditions
he promptly changed his mind, and It Is
my opinion that ns far as the fanners
and the people of the smaller towns are
concerned tho, vote will be practically
unanimous for removal to the stnto farm
when the true facts are made known as
to tho cost on the two propositions. The
result of tho election in Lincoln yester

LINCOLN, May 7.-(Spcclal.)-Anothcr
condition as a result of the workings of
tho late lamented legislature has been
discovered In regard to the legislation on
salaries to the warden of the penitentiary
and his assistants.
The old law gavo tho warden 31,600 a
year. The new law allows him a salary
of) 32,600. Tho appropriation bill gives him
bht 32.000. '
The new law, whllo fixing the salary
o fthe warden at 32,600. gives the Board
of Control authority to fix salaries of tho

bill fixes tho amounts as follows: Dop
uty, $1,230; chief clerk, sl.SGO; stoward,
$1,200; physician, $1,200; usher, $000;

Tho bill gives the Board of Control au
thority to fix tho salaries, the appropria
tion bill Axes them as above and the at
torneys general of former administrations
have decided that the appropriation bills
arc tho rcul thing.
What will turn up next as the result
of tho hide and seek game by tho demo
