Pool Declares Candidate! of Parties
that Do Not Affiliate Must
Go it Alone.
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. March (Special.) No
candidate for office on ore ticket hai
any right to appear as candidate for
office on another ticket, according to Sec
retary of State Pool, and whenever a
protest Is entered against auch double
representation, the secretary of atate will
hold that the word affiliation simply
means that a man cannot affiliate wtth
more than one party.
The matter came up on the protest
of F. P. Corrtck, state chairman of the
progressive party against the names of
republican and democrats going on the
progressive ticket. Some withdrawals
had been made, and the matter finally
dwindled down to consideration of the
names of Congressmen Sloan and Kln
kald, who as republicans had been filed
for places for congressional nomination
on the progressive ticket by. bullmoose
petitions and acceptance of the same had
been received.
Pool Raises Bar.
Both had been the candidates of the
bulmoose party in two previous cam
paigns and no objection had been made.
However, Mr. Pool holds that as the
national organisation of the republican
and progressive parties do not affiliate,
candidates for office are barred from
Hower, while republicans are barred
from the bullmoose ticket, moosers can
run on the republican ticket, and such
will be the case in the instance of A.
II. Blgelow of Omaha, candidate for con
gress In the Second district, who late
yesterday accepted a filing for his name
to go on the republican ticket for con
gress, and as no one took enough Inter
est In the 'matter to protest, ths prim
aryballot will show the name of Mr.
Blgelow on the republican ballot con
testing with Judge Ben Baker and David
Mercer for the nomination.
In the case of C. H. Sloan and M. P.
KInkaid, there were no candidates for
congress In their districts on the pro
gressive ticket.
The same old farce of peoples Inde
pendent filings on the democratlo ticket
will still continue, although that party
has, no organization and mighty few
District lacks Candidate.
The Seventy-sixth representative dis
trict will have no candidate for nomina
tion for that office on either of the six
primary ballots, no one having e'nt In
their filing to the secretary of state.
The district comprises the counties of
Banner, Kimball, Cheyenne, Deuel and
Garden, represented In the last session
by William L. Bates of Lodge Pole.
Newspaper notices indicated that Mr.
Bates had filed for the republican nomi
nation with the county treasurer of his
own county, but no receipt for the fillnj
fee or filing has ever reached the secre
tary of state and so no name will ap
pear on the ticket.
If Mr. Bates had really made KIs filing
In hfs home county and'Vald the filing;
fee and the official had neglected to for
ward the same to the secretary of state,
It Is. possible that mandamus proceeding
might compel his name to be placed on
the ballot. However, that would be up
to Mr. Bates to take action It he so decider.
