They have formerly been ty or fifty votes apieca, frequently a precinct or a ward, but they are now apathetic. They will vote tiie ticket straight, probably, because they have nothing to look for from Lind, but they are not enamored of the prospect of Eustis' election and they v i are to lay themselves open to the accusation of offensive partisan ship by Governor-to-be Dind. Mr. Eustis is fortunate, however, In having found a scapecoat to bear pan of the burchn of his losing cam part of the burden of his losing breaks as mayor, did enough to defeat any ordinary man who was coming before the people for their suffrages, and now Judge Emery has bee* putting his foot ln it. Emery, who was rewarded for In ;• litical services with a police justiceship, was sent out on the stump. Emery is a pompous aristrocratic in dividual whose main interest with the people is when he can use them to help himself into a good job. He got out Into the western part of the state and he rend William Henry's speech about remembering the Maine. Emery thought that was good as far as it went, but it did not go far enougn to suit him. He thought he could add a frills to it. So he got up Ln a ting, a Republican meeting, and he thought lie was safe. "Show me," he said, "where there we,s a Democrat behind an Amreican gun, either at Santiago or Manila, an-0 show y pu a white crow." It so happened that the Republican n the ounty ticket were men who had friends in the Democratic party, and they hoped to get these votes. Many indeed of the Democrats camo cut in order that the local com mittee might not be prejudiced by a small meeting. Then Emery slapped in the faces men who had sons fighting SEVENTH AND CEDAR STS.

The Repub licans whose sons were there despisea him, and the Democrats whose sons were there could not help but hate the man whose attitude during a time of turmoil in Minneapolis showed him anything but a friend of the common people. Emery has lost votes for the ticket ln the west and the county ticket are busy trying to square the thing. But the Democrats and Republicans alike know that the best thing that the Re publican party can do for its own gocd, is to put a muzzle on Emery at once. Some of the sager heads in the par ty knew that when the campaign started, but he wanted to go so bad that Judge Steele let him get a few dates, and he has done just what everyone who knew the man knew he would.

WM PROHIBITIONISTS WANT THAT AS MUCH AS THEY WANT SEC OND PLACE ACCORDING TO DANIEL DOTY Burden of Hla Argument Before the Supreme Court Was the Question of the Secretary of State's Rl^ht to Slake Up the Ticket Hon. T. D. O'Brien Appear* for Attorney General Childs. The order to show cause brought against Secretary of State Berg, in the proceedings instituted by the Prohibi tion party, demanding a second place on the state ticket, was considered by the supreme court yesterday and tak en under advisement by that body. Daniel W. Doty, on behalf of the Prohibition state central committee, occupied an hour with his argument on the order. Hon. T. D. O'Brien, at the request of Gen. Childs, appeared lr» rebuttal. Mr. Doty asserted that if the sug gestion of Attonney General Childs that the court had no jurisdiction in the matter held good, it would make Albert Berg an absolute monarch and that ho being on the ticket as a candidate for re-election, could, by virtue of the office which he held, keep all other names except his own off the ticket, and he could perpetuate himself for all time in Uie office. This would be the re sult if the courts had no jurisdiction, and if Mr. Berg should assert an ar bitrary attitude In the matter, Mr. Doty held that the Democratic and People's party lost their identity when one par ty indorsed the candidates of the other. "When the secretary of state comes to make up the state ticket," said Mr. Doty, "he will place at the head of the ticket the Republican nominees, they having received the largest number of votes at the last general election. If he proceeded according to law he would place the Prohibition party second, as its candidates received on an average about 7,000 votes. The Democratic and People's candidates would, by reason of the fusion, not be entitled to second place, as it would be impossible to de termine which votes were People's par ty votes and which were Democratic ballots. "But," interposed Judge Start, "tak ing that as true would it not deprive all the old parties of their legal status, if some new party should come along and indorse their candidates?" Mr. Doty: "It is a matter of choice whether they would accept the nomina tion or not." Judge Collins: "How can you keep a party from indorsing a candidate or set of candidates?" Mr. Doty: "It is merely optional, as I said before, whether a man accepts his nomination or not. Furthermore, It the rule applies and the secretary o£ state is not compelled to follow the law, he would soon become a despot and un limited monarch." Judge Collins: "Well this opens up* an endless chain. All you would have to do to deprive any of the old parties of their legal standing would be to get some party to indorse its candidates. One year the Republicans would lead the ticket, next year the Democrats and so on down the line." Mr. Doty: "I think it could be de pended upon that the parties would be more fair than that." Judge Collins: "It is hardly correct to presume that all is honorable in war, love or politics." Mr. Doty: "By indorsement the Re publicans would destroy themselves. It would virtually be committing suicide for the party to indorse the candidates of any other party, and I think the court can depend upon the selfish neaa of the party to avert any such calamity as that." In closing Mr. Doty said: "The state will go right along the same as before and its subjects will continue to enjoy good health, which ever way the court decides. But the principle involved is just as important is if it was an at tempt of Albert Berg to keep all but himself off the ticket. The Dem ocratic party and People's party are .-till in existence and doing business at the old stand, but neither of them are entitled to second place on the ticket, as it would be an intellec tual impossibility for the secretary of state to determine what proportion of the ballots credited to the fusion ticket belonged to either party. If Albert Berg is to have unlimited power it is high time that the people of the state know it." T. D. O'Brien, at the request of the attorney general, took up the other side in behalf of the secretary and the Dem ocratic state central committee. Mr. O'Brien made a brief straightforward address. '"It is quite apparent," said Mr. O'Brien, "that the secretary of state has treated the matter with emi nent fairness. Mr. Doty acknowledges that the Democratic and People's party received next to the highest numb* r of votes cast at the last general election, and it is of this fact that the court must take cognizance. In considering the case we must not loose sight of his torical facts. For forty yeais the Dem ocratic party has been in existence in this state, and has polled at all times from one-third to 40 per cent of the votes in the state. The People's party is ten years old, and in 1596 the parties joined forces and polled 162,000 votes as against 165,000 cast by the Republic ans of the state. The candidates of the Democratic and People's party bc-i; g identical they have in all fairness a right to second place. "The primary election law and the Australian ballot system which took the composition of the tickets out of j the hands of the candidates were not intended to allow small parties to man- I ipulate and confuse the voters." » Judge Start: "Suppose the contro- • versy had been between the People's and Democratic parties for a certain place on the state ticket." Mr. O'Brien: "Well, in that case there would be no point at law; they would be given places on the ticket in the order which their certificates of Domination were filed." At the close of the arguments the court took the matter under advisement with the understanding that an opinion would be given this morning, as this is the day when the ballot will be com pleted by the secretary of state.

STATE PRINTER WHITNEY SE CURES AN OPINION The Latter Han Always Regarded That Xewnpaper WltSeli Published the Delinquent Tax List as It. State Printer C. C. Whitney has been in receipt of frequent inquiries from county officials asking what consti tutes an official newspaper. As the time for the publication of the official ballot draws near, this is an important question to all county auditors. In an opinion rendered to Mr. Whitney by Gen. Childs yesterday considerable light is thrown upon the matter, al though there is no speciflo statute bear ing on the matter. The text of the opinion Is as follows: In your communication of this date you ask what constitutes an official newspaper. The statutes have nowhere defined an "of ficial paper, although the term is used in one or more places therein. The term may be used somewhat relatively. In counties where a paper has been selected by a board of county commissioners for the publication of all official matters, it would clearly be entitled to such title. But it frequently and, perhaps, generally, i 8 the case that the pub lication of official notices and proceedings required to be published by the board of county commissioners is distributed among several papers. It is then apparent that all are not entitled to the designation of of ficial papers. The general election law re quires the sample ballot to be published by the county auditor ln the "official newspaper' of the county. Clearly this does not imply that lt may be printed in any one of the papers ln which the official matters may have been published by the board. I have long entertained the view that tho paper to which the title belongs la the one ln which the delinquent tax list ia published. Such a paper la selected, it must be pre sumed, with due regard to the Importance of the subject. This view accords with the generally accepted view obtaining with coun ty officers and ip ty my Judgment, the moat rational one which can be advanced.

HOSPITAL WAS CLOSED. City Attorney Markham'i Opinion Good Only for a Reference. It transpires that the opinion that City Attorney Markham rendered a few days ago to tho effect that a consumption hospital might be considered a nuisance under some circumstances, was not necessary to the re moval of the offending institution. Six weeks ago some residents on Prescott street complained that they believed tho health of the neighborhood was jeopardized by the operation of a hospital in that vicin ity. The health authorities sent the protest to the corporation attorney. The other day he rendered the opinion and the authorities proceeded to act on it, and found that the hospital had been closed for some time. NURSING THEIR WOUNDS. Col. T. J.

For several moments Miss Irene Owens, living at 2030 Selby avenue, lay under a Merriam Park street car last evening, In imminent danger of being crushed to death. She fell into an ex cavation between the track ties and the car passed directly over her. Ow ing to the fact that her body was well down in the hole between the ties, she escaped being mangled., as she was not struck by the wheels, and when rescued from her perilous position, as quickly as possible, wafi found to be seriously, but not dangerously, hurt. Mrs. Dr, Hen derson, of Merriam Park, also stegped into the excavation and fell down, but fortunately was thrown outside of the track, instead of 'between the rails, jjnd so escaped being imprisoned under "the car with Miss Owens.

Henderson was" be hind and fell outside of the rails, but Miss Owens fell Into the hole between them. At this moment the car started to back up to make room for the ap pioaching east-bound car to pass, and, before the frightened cries of the wom en could be heeded, Miss Owens was pinioned under the rear coach. When the car was stopped, she was complete ly hidden from view. A hurried Inves tigation showed that the young woman was party protected through lying ln the excavation between the ties and the car was quickly drawn forward, re leasing her from further danger.
