The courier. (Lincoln, Neb.) 1894-1903, March 29, 1902, Page 6, Image 6
THE COURIER Horrlgan, a young democrat of ability, is contesting with Mr. Cosgrave for the police Judgeship, but his hopes of elec tion are based on nothing tangible and in fact neither he nor any of the fu sion candidates on the city ticket have any chance of election. In the Fourth, Fifth, Sixth and Seventh wards the republican councllmanlc candidates, while opposed by men against whose character and fitness there is practl- cally nothing to be said, have a walk away. Mr. Bishop in the Fourth is a much more able man than his un known opponent, and Is so much better equipped to perform good service that not the least hope exists for Mr. Keith. In the Fifth and Seventh Councilman Frampton and Lyman are seeking re-election. Both have made excellent representatives In the city governing body, and with their expe rience and knowledge of affairs are In a much better position to do good -service than their opponents. In the Sixth, in Lee J. Dunn, the republicans present the sort of a man the people of Lincoln desire to see In' the council, a business man of property and experi ence. In the First ward M. D. Clary, the republican nominee. Is confronted with Councilman Malone, who is reeking a third term. Mr. Malone's record as a councilman Is so 'well known that It seed not be commented upon. Mr. Clary ls"a business man with a follow ing sufficiently large to justify the be lief that he will be elected. In the Third ward George H. Moore, the re publican nominee, is having opposition in the person of Horace F. Bishop, a young attorney. Every indication points to the election of Mr. Moore. He Is a big, stalwart Burlington engineer, a man very popular among his fellow workmen and influential in labor cir cles. He has been very active In re publican politics, and he will take the office with but one pledge, to do his best for the Interests of his ward. In the Second C. E. "Wilkinson, republi can, nnd Jacob H. North, democrat, are the contestants. Both are capable genDemen, but there Is no reason why any republican should decline to vote for Mr. Wilkinson. He is a clean and able man, who can be depended upon not to co-operate with any faction or gang In opposition to the city's best interests. ft ft ft Facta of later Doctors in Sweden never send bills to their patients. They cheerfully ac cept whatever sum the patient choose to give them. In Europe ten out of every one thou sand people are living out of their own country; in America 137 out of every thousand, while 300 out of every thou sand Australians were born .in some other part of the world. America sells nearly three times as much as she buys; Germany buys 9360,006,660 worth more every year than she sells, while Great Britain last year actually bought twice as much as she told. In France the women teachers elect women members on all boards of edu cation. In Sweden women vote for all elective officers except representatives; also,' Indirectly, for members of the upper house. In Ireland the women vote for the-harbor boards and poor law guardians,- and in Belfast for municipal officers. Iq Russia women householders vote for all elective offi cers and on all local matters. Professional shoppers are employed by a certain targe dry-goods firm in London to test the ability of shop as sistants. This firm owns several large shops and employes nearly 1.000 assist ants. To find out whether every cus tomer Is politely served a number of lady customers are employed to call at the various shops. They are told to give as much trouble as possible, and sometimes to leave without making a purchase after looking at nearly every thing in the shop. Peru holds the record as a mining country. She has 2,560 mines, from which 76.6M workmen dig gold, silver, sulphur, coal, phosphate, quicksilver, and lead. SOCIETY NOTES LIFE'S MAZY WHIRL The season of fasting and penitence is nearing the end, sorrow and sighing will flee away with the setting of to day's sun, and tomorrow will bring joy and gladness, and Easter carols, and resurrection lillles. Never before was there such a display of lovely blooms for Easter, as a visit to the florists' shops will prove. First there are the lillles pure and white, and fragrant, general favorites at this season. Those to whom the white flowers are sug gestive of sadness may revel amid the colored beauties but they will find" it hard to choose from so much loveliness. The lavender, pink, and purple hya cinths, the yellow daffodils, the bril liant hued tulips, touched by the brush of the most skillful of artists, with the gayest of colors, are all there to tempt with their reminders of spring. Then there are the roses and carnations which are always with us but which seem to feel glad themselves that spring is here and to be just a HtHe brighter than usual on that ac count. To these are added the cycla men in Its various shades, and the deli cate splrea, and many many others, anl for a setting to all come the palms, tall and graceful, and the ferns.
