DUEL OF FATHER
ANtl HUSBAND IS
STOPPED BY GIRL
Omaha Elopement Foments
Anger of Parent Father
and Groom Unreconciled
, i .
Dark-eyed Kettie Teakell Sesto,
17-year-old bride of one week, pre
vented a gun duel betwen her boy
'husband, Tony Sesto, 1901 South
. Fourteenth street, and her "father,
W. E. Teakell, 2223 DodgV street.
Thursday night at the Teaketl home,
' when husband and father drew guns
on eachsother, police authorities say.
Police were called and arrested
Tony for carrying concealed wea
Done. He was fined $25 and costs
', in Central police court yesterday.
' Mr. Teakell 'alone appeared against
him. The young wife waited at her
father's home tor tbye return of her
husband from police court.
Nettie's elopement last Saturday
with Tony caused the anger of the
father, police claim. The young
touple were married at Papillion,
Neb. When Mr. Teakell reported his
daughter missing to police Thurs
day he learned , she was married
- to Tony. Uponv request 'of the
father, Tony and his young wife
visited at the Teakell home early
Thursday night for an interview
tmth Mr. Teakell. '
Nettie warned her husband to car
"ry a gun, 'according to Tony."
"I know father is awful angry at
us," he says she told him. -
x As the young couple entered the
Teakell home the father is said to
. .have reached for his gup and Tony
followed h example. Nettie, the
peacemaker, stepped between them,
grabbing her father's hand, which
site claims held a loaded gun. She
wept, Tony testified in police court
f yesterday, and husband and father
put dcwn their guns. ;
Mr. Teakell called police and ac
companied his daughter and son-in-
law to Central station. ' Police held
Tony. Silently weeping, his young
wife left the station with her father.
; Mr. Teakell refused to be reconciled
v , with Tony in police court Thursday.
; QUESTION ARISES ,
OVER FILING FEE
' FOR CONVENTIONS
Meanwhile, Candidates From
, County Must Deposit $5 "
. Test Case oon.
.- . ,
Must a candidate for the-county
convention under the Reynolds law,
, passed by the last legislature, pay a
filing fee of $5? This is the problem
s which Election' Commissioner
Moorhead yesterday asked Chief
Deputy County Attorney Coffey to
' V decide, - ' . .
The new law provides for election
f of delegates Ho the- county conven
. tions of the big parties, one man
. a.nd one woman being elected from
. each precinct of each-county. It is
, designed to eliminate "handpicking"
, of the county convention.
. But nothing is, said ,of a filing
fee. The. statutes of the state stipu
late that fees shall be paid by can
didates filing for offices at the pri-
maries as follows: For United States
senator, $50; for state offices, mem
ber of congress and district judge,
- $10; for county, legislative and city
, ," offices, $5. ,
. Doubts ; Necessity of Fee.
"Is tne office of delegate to the
s eounty convention of a political
party, a county, legislative or city
office? That js the question to be de
cided," said if r. Coffey.
( "The statutes provide that no fil
ing fee shall be required from candi
dates for regent of the state univer
sity or fofl presidential elector. My
own personal yiew fro,m a cursory
'' examination of thcNsubiect is that no
" fees can be demanded from candi
dates filing for delegate to the coun
ty convention.- However. I have
"asked to have the whole subject pre-
t sented in writing and will then give
a definite decision after looking up
all sides of the question."
Those who sponsored the bill say
it was an oversight that no Clause
was put into it providing .that no
filing fee need be paid by candidates
-tor this office, which pays no salary,
' It is admitted that if a filing fee
is demanded there will be no candi
dates fortheoffins! .
