KEARNEY. Neb., April 12.-(Speelal
telegram.) ClUacna ot Kearney will In
II probability hae another opportunity
to vote on the question of having sal

made In printing the ballot when the

(legally grant license for any licensed

The ballot failed to atlpulate what par

lights sufficient error either to call for
another election or to make it possible to
restrain the newly-elected, city council
from issuing licenses of any nature.

much of the credit lies at the door ol Sen

Is partially due to the fact that the sen
