Delsell Socialist Nomine.
The multttudinoua battle of the eleven
candidates in the First congressional dis
trict for congressional nominations has
not turned out quite so one-sided as It
was at first feared. When the returns
first came In it was supposed that Frank
Rcavle of Falls City and Johnny Magulre
of Lincoln had carried off all the honors,
but a canvass of the votes of the First
district discloses that there are others
who have had honors thrust upon them
and are recipients of nominations which
are not to be sneesed gsV
James E. Delsell, who. In the battle for
state superintendent, turned the mantle
of defeat over to his deputy and entered
the race for congress and lost out for
the republican nomination, la the nomi

TO MAKE PEOPLE VOTE
(From a Matt Correspondent.) .
LINCOLN. Sept. a.-(Special.) The man
' who does not go to the polls and vote in
the future may be subject to a ride In
the patrol wagon, If a bill which J.. H.
Grosvenor, chairman of the populist
party, bas drafted and proposes to have
introduced in the legislature, becomes a
law. It la understood that the bill is
brought out to asslut the suffragist cause,
us one of the great drawbacks which the
advocates of equal suffrage have to face
in the one that if the woman are given the
vote they will not use It, therefore, Mr.
Grosvenor comes to their relief. ,
The measure is called a "non-voting
poll tax law." By its provisions a tax
of $6 is levied against every qualified
elector of the state. When the elector
goes to the primaries and votes half of
the tax Is remitted. If he also performs
his duty similarly at general election time
the other 3 Is remitted. Electors who fall
to put in appearance at either election
must pay the full amount.
Reasonable exemptions on account of
eUkness or absence from the state are
provided In tho measure. Collection of the
tax is put up to the county authorities. A
system of checking of names of electors
Is provided for as between election boards
'IV . 7 . .
The state tax commission may get be-
hind the measure. There la some doubt
whether such a step comes properly under
the out.ln. of duties for that body. If the
commission takes notice of the bill pre-
pared by Its chairman it will likely do
