SNAG FOR NONPARTISAN LAW
Bequest from Haigler for Inter
pretation of Judiciary Aot.
PETITIONS CAUSE THE DISPUTE
Old Ijw Permitting I'nmlliliitr to
Grt ou thr llnllnt HtUI Kxlatn

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, July 25. (Speclal.)-Th non
partisan Judiciary law passed by tho lot
session of the legislature nnd which wlU
receive Its first trial at the primaries Au
gust 18. has already encountered difficul
ties. There stands on the statute books
of the state a. law enacted more than a
neons of years reo that tnay do away with
tho law as enacted. This statute pro
vides that n candidate for any state of flea
may be nominated, otherwise than at the
primary, by filing with tho secretary of
state a petition containing the blgnatures
of 1,000 voterB. A candidate for county
office may have his name placed upon the
election ballot by filing with tho county
clerk a petition havInK 200 signatures.
Francis B. Moore of Haigler has asked
Attorney General Martin to straighten out
the apparent conflict Tho littomey gen
eral today received a letter from Moore
asking If under tho old statuto he may
become a candidate for county Judge by
Petition. Attorney General Martin lias
declined to give an opinion on the ques
tion, and should tho question bo further
pursued It probably will be noccssary to
take it up In court
SIlKht Avoid I'rliuury.
The advantaged of this law to the can
didate, should it bo held as still valid,
are obvious. Under tho nonpartisan Ju
diciary law a candldat for any Judicial
office cannot become a party candidate,
and a petition bearing 2,000 signatures is
necessary to assure the placing of a name
on the primary ballot. Thus under the
older statute the candidate could have his
name placed on the ballot at tho genornl
election by petition with a smaller num
ber of signers and also avoid tho expense
of the primary campaign.
One clause of the recently enacted law,
however, may render tho older statuto in
4ralld. This reads:
"In no event shall the names of t tin
tofflclal ballot in each utfico division be
moro than twice the number of offices to
bo filled at tho said general election."
Should this clauso be held valid It will
do away with the petition law, as under
the nonpartisan act 'the two candidates
receiving the highest number of votes In
tha primaries will havo their names
placed on the official ballot
Elliott Gives Platform.
Robert 3. Elliott, candidate for state
superintendent of public Instruction, on
the republican ticket, and for three years
deputy in tho superintendent's office, Is
sending out letters stating his qualifica
tions and giving his platform. He has
had long experience as a teacher anr
teacher's trainer In Nebraska, He says
in part after declaring the rural school
needs greatest attention In Nebraska:
I believe that more attention should be
given to the teaching of the essentials
such as reading, writing, arithmetic,
(spelling and language in the public
schools in order to obtain moro practical
results; I favor the continuation uf full
publicity of the flnancos of the office,
nnd careful economy In the transaction
of tha business of tho department in
I approve of the wider use of the
school plant as a social center, and
would encourage tho establishment of
lecture courses and literary societies for
community participation nnd enjoyment.
I feel that the school Interests of the
state are too sacred to be marred by
trivial personalities, and that educational
policies aro living Issues meriting the
thoughtful, unprejudiced consideration of
the people. I believe in non-partisanship
In the administration of school nffalrs.
