Mayor Dahlrnan made the emtlre circuit
yesterday and others of the square seven
preceded or followed the chief executive.
Jamea H. Hanley. Congressman Lobeck's
secretary, and I J- TePoe! were among
the volunteer speakers. The mayor's trip
was marked by several Incidents which
served to break the ennui of campaign
work. While addressing a large gather
ing of Greek cltirens on Jackson street
a report of a powder explosion was heard
from the Eleventh street viaduct, and
some wag suggested that It was the antls
getting their 42-ce.ntlmeter guns In
action. A shower Interfered with tl

; Administration and antl leaders declare
they are all ready for the flnsl heat to
morrow. They say there are ho de
flections In the ranks, . and eaoh side
maintains their men will be elected.
Speaking on Ogden avenue, the mayor
said: "I have observed that In all of the
campaigns I have been In tho fight has
been centered upon me, because they
know they' can't control me. A certain
newspaper Is, continuously fighting me
because it cannot control me, but I want
to say that I have compelled that paper
to stop using my name."
He also declared that he has. ben
elected mayor three times, but in this In
stance he does not believe that the "three
times and out" rule will hold good.
"I despise a . coward, and a .hypocrite,
and I want to tell you that I will go
down fighting these fellows.' They cant
make ma quit." he said."
, This Is the manner la whloh fh mayor
hi J the target: j lf yo believe itjfrae

Are you going to stand for bunk? If
anybody her knows of any reason why
the antls should ba elected, 1st htm stand
up now and give his reason and not wait
until Jtmmle has gone. ' I want, soma Of
them to stand up before ma and tell their
vicious Una, and then 111 tell what I
think of them. - We'll throw these four.
fruahars into ' tha deck ' on Tuesday. I
oould have rested upon my primary fight
and would have bean re-elected without
further effort, but I want six other
men In with me. I would not give two
cents to ba re-elected with those six
antls. Do you want those b rasa-collared
fellows in tha city hall?. Do you think
you could shake hands with those antls
tf they are elected? Why are they so
anxious to get rid of Little Jlmmie? I'll
stay with them until hell freezes over!"

EXPOSE PLAN OP THE DEMOCRATS
Entry of the republican "band
wagon" Into the municipal political
situation Saturday waa the most im
portant development of the later
stages of the campaign.
,The "bandwagon," which was an
automobile truck . carrying four re
publican speakers, a fife and drum
corps and several horns. Invaded tha
downtown districts last' night and
made : the "hit" of the campaign.
More than 5,000 persons, it was es
timated, listened to speeches of wood
republican doctrine and exposures of
"prang-faced democrats' love of non
partisan ' politics in a republican
city.'f The trip will be repeated Mon
At Fifteenth and Douglas streets, the
storm center of the campaign, hearers
of rival "Ins" and "outs" oratory, de
serted In large numbers to listen to the
republicans. They visited also. Sixteenth
and Capitol Avenue and Sixteenth and
Douglas. , All afternoon the "Bandwagon"
traveled tha streets ot Omaha bearing
huge signs reading, "Help to Has tore
Confidence and Prosperity," and bearing
tha names of republican candidates for
the city commission.
E a poses Democrat Plot.
A. W. Jefferis, chief speaker, gave bis
audience plain talk. Ha told thorn of
the wave of republicanism which Is
sweeping tha country, of the need for
Omaha to put men in its city offices
who will be in sympathy with the next
national and state administration, and of
the closed mills and factories in the east
walling for republican prosperity to re
open them. He exposed outwardly in
nocent but really designing attempts ot
democrats to elect all but two commis
sioners of their own party, and their ef
forts to put democrats In control of po
lltlcal machinery In the city.
"Seventeen ' thoussnd republicsns are
registered In Omaha," he declared, "which
is T.000 more than the democrats can
muster. A hopeless minority of demo
crats is attempting to elect five out ot
seven city commissioners.
Osaaaa, Mast Get la Mae.
"Omaha should get In Una with Chicago,
Bt. Louis. Oklahoma City, Kansas City,
Kan., and all the other cities that just
the other day voted republican. It Is a
part of the wave of republicanism which
Is sweeping the country. Omaha should
get ready for it; should join In.
"National issues now are effecting
every man and woman in the west, as
well as in the east. Placards on the
closed mills and factories In the east tell
th story 'Closed ' by democratic tariff
theories.'. The. nation Is about to make
Itself prosperous once more by putting
republicans back Into office.
"Leave nonpartlsanship to the democrats-who
are trying to get republican
votes by a. plausible outcry."

NO EVIDENCE OF BIO BATTLE
LONDON. May 2. Interest has
turned again to the eastern front

by tbo Germans.
The extent of this new raid has

In their ability to deal with this new

turned from their offensive against that
pass to attack the Austrlans; who were
threatening their communications In the

their report, won considerable success,
capturing two hetKhta and a number ot

It Is expected that a big offensive soon
