THE BEE: OMAHA, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 1916. Nebraska CANDIDATE DIES ON ELEC TION DAY. SILAS R. BARTON DIESJUDDEEK Republican Candidate for Con gress in Fifth District Dies of Heart Trouble. WAS ILL ONLY FEW HOURS Grand Island, Neb., Nov. 7. Hon. Silas R. Barton, a member of the Sixty-third congress, representing the Fifth Nebraska district, and the republican candidate for election to the same office at this time, in com petition with Congressman Ashton C. Shallenberger, died suddenly at 11:30 this morning of heart trouble. Mr. Barton closed his campaign in his home city last night with an open air meeting. Intimate friends had known that the severities of the cam- aign had previously affected his ealth. and during the last five weeks he had, upon several occasions, peen compelled to remain in his home for recuperation. The exposure of last night, he having stood with bared head while addressing the home folks, is believed to have brought the fatal end. Widow .Waa Miss Metcalfe. He leaves a widow, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. R. L. Metcalfe, ol Omaha, and one son, Silas R. Bar ton, jr. Silas Reynolds Barton was born at New Lindon, la., May 21, 1872, moved with his parents to Hamilton county, Nebraska, in 1873, where they took up a homestead. He graduated from the Aurora High school and attended the Peru State normal. He engaged in farming and teaching school until 1898, when he was appointed deputy county treasurer of Hamilton county, from which position he resigned in 1901 to assume the duties of grand recorder of the Ancient Order of United Workmen of Nebraska. He was president for two terms of the Grand Recorders' association of the United States, was a member of the supreme lodge finance committee to audit the accounts of the order, was a member of the committee of fifteen to revise the rates of the order at a meeting held at Montreal, Canada, and resigned as grand recorder of the Ancient Order of -United Workmen upon his election to the office of audi tor of the state of Nebraska, serving in this capacity from 1909 to 1913. Prominent in Order. During Mr. Barton's two terms as auditor and insurance commissioner he was a member of the national ex ecutive committee of insurance com missioners; was nominated by the di rect primary as a candidate for con gress in April, 1912, over four com petitors, receiving 6,109 votes of a total of 11,389; was elected to the Sixty-third congress, receiving 18,816 votes to 17,522 for R. B. Sutherland, democrat. The news of Mr. Barton's death spread quickly throughout the district. In many cases republican managers ent word, as far as oossible. that the voting should continue unaffected by ine suaaen eternise. In many cases democratic poll workers called attention to the death by information to the voters. Inquiries also came in as to the result should Mr. Barton be elected. In his home city republican voters generally and even independent and democratic vot ers cast their votes for their departed fellow citizen as a measure of respect . What Effect May Be. Congressman Barton's death may leave a vacancy to be filled by ap pointment oy ine governor in case the dead congressman receives a ma- jority of the votes cast, according to the opinion of prominent Omaha at torneys. Under the state statutes the appointee of the governor would hold over until the next general election, unless removed by the house of repre sentatives, which oasses on the tier. tion credentials of its members. The Nebraska constitution does not pro vide for a special election to fill such vacancies. Local republican leaders suggested Congressman Barton's death miorht be used as cause to disqualify Shal lenberger in the house of representa tives, should a republican house be elected. One attorney said: "A re publican house would undoubtedly re move onauenDerger and direct the governor to appoint a republican to represent me t ittn district. Possible Vacancy. Other attorneys and republican lead ers, holding that a dead man could not be elected to office, declared that in the event of either Barton or Shal lenberger receiving a majority of the votes cast, the logical course for the house of representatives to nursue would be to declare a vacancy and di rect tne governor tp till the vacancy by appointment. The federal constitution has no pro vision for such vacancies and they are covered by statutes of the states, at torneys said. Attorneys were unani mous that under the Nebraska law no litigation over the office could grow out of Congressman Barton's death because the case is covered ex plicitly in the statutes. It was suggested by some Omaha attorneys that the death of Congress man Barton would possibly influence the lower house in disqualifying Shal lenberger, should he be elected, and directing the governor to appoint a third candidate without there be one. No other party candidates, however, were nominated for congress in the Fifth district. Mr. Barton was married a few years ago to Miss Ellen Metcalfe, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Richard L. Met calfe. Word was received this morn ing by Mr. Metcalfe that Mr. Barton was quite sick with pneumonia and he and Mrs Metcalfe took a tram for Grand Island about an hour before the news of his death was received.

Bellevue College Voters Cast Ballots for the First Time Youthful Voters of Bellevue college had the thrill that comes once in a life-time when autos came up the hill to call for those fortunate enough to be of age. Of course, the young ladies could not vote, but their influence had been felt, and classes and such immaterial things were temporarily put aside and campaign speeches held the minds of the students. Every issue before the public had been discussed and settled to the satisfaction of the feminine politicians, and many a mere man had been set straight as to the proper thing tor the good ot the nation.

Captain Mainland of the steamship Lanao, sunk by a German submarine off Cape Vincent, said to day that he knew nothing of the re ported sale of the Lanao to a Norwe gian. He was acting on the assump tion that the Lanao was still of Phil ippine registry and entitled to fly the American flag. Captain Mainland said it had been a moot question for a long time whether vessels under Philippine reg istry were entitled to tly the Ameri can flag, adding. Many owners ot sucn vessels nave been fined by the United States gov ernment for flying the American flag, but a recent decision gave them the right to do so." The captain saved the ship's papers, which he brought to Cardiff, showing that the Lanao was registered at Manila and thus entitled to fly Amer ican colors. State Department View. Washington, Nov. 7. In the ab sence today of Secretary Lansing and other high officials of the State de partment the course of the United States in dealing with the case of the steamer Lanao, sunk by a submarine October 28 off the Portuguese coast, was undetermined. The department was without official advices from con sular or diplomatic officers on details of the sinking. On the strength of press dispatches officials here were inclined to believe that there is but little ground for an American protest, since the ship carried contraband and was warned and its crew transferred without accident. The question of her registry ap parently is the onlv troublesome fac tor. Despite the declaration of its American captain that it was under American registry and flew the Amer ican flag when sunk, the official view at the Department of Commerce, which handles changes of registry, was that the Lanao had been sold by the Findlay, Millar Steamship com pany of Manila to Hans Hannevrg of Chnstiania, Norway, and that while actual transfer to her new owners had not been made, the sale had gone far enough legally to take her from the protection ot the American tlag. American Woman Killed by Bandits Tucson, Ariz., Nov. 7. Arthur Wil liams, agent for an automobile supply house in Chihuahua, reached here yes terday in a battered automobile after a chase by Villa bandit sharpshooters in another car, in the course of which a woman, whose name is unknown here, and Williams' little daughter were killed.
