ItiR of the registration booths on Thursday , nntl no effort will bo spared to urge upon every voter the Importance of early enroll ing himself for participation In the coming election ind subsequent primaries of the party. Voters who have not familiarized them selves With the provisions of the new law cnnctcd by the UU scmlon of the loslilaturo for the protection of primary ( lections nail con\cntlons of political parties are apt to encounter , when they present themselves for reglHtrntlon , a entrprlse In one of the ques tions that will bo propounded to them by the rcGlHtcrliiK officials "What political party do you desire to affiliate with ? " will bo the pertinent Inquiry leveled nt each applicant for a place on the tlng list. This question will not , lie prompted by tho. Idle curiosity of the oinclal propounding It , nor by any reprehensible ambition on his part to pr > Into the Hccr-ls of the \otcr , but because the law dlrcclH him to ask It. The law effecting this requirement was Introtlu'i-d at the last scbslon by Senator Van Duron of Uouplas county and approved April 11 , providing that the first registration of votera under tbo net shall bo h.ul at the htate registration In the fall of IS'n.

" Viirloii * PrnilNlnnx. The law further provides that the com mittee or governing authority of any polit ical party desiring to conduct a primary under the provisions of the act shall- have the right to copy the names of all persons registered on the regular state registration books as nfflllated wllh such political party Into books provided by such committee or governing authority , a book being provided for each precinct in which It Is proposed to hold a primary under this law.

The parties selected to do the copying must nlgn their lists and deliver them to the committee under the direction of which the copying Is done , to bo by It delivered to the primary election orrtclals. 1,1'KnI Opinion * . A number of attorneys were consulted as to the effect of the above provisions In cases In which the voter demurs to the Inquiry Into his political preferences , nnd all agreed that any voter who does not care to answer need encounter no obstacle to his preserv ing the secrecy of his party affiliation , but In order to do so ho must effectually re linquish the right to participate ; in the primaries of his party Immediately follovv- . . .

Heart trouble , nt least among the Ameri cans , Is certainly Increasing and while this may bo largely duo to the excitement nm worry of American busliicb.i life , It Is moro often the result of weak stomachs of pee digestion. Heal 01 ganlc dlsenso Is Incurable ; but no one case In a hundred of heart trouble is organic The eloso relation bctwton heart trouble nnd poor digestion is because both organs nro controlled by the same great nerves , the Sympathetic and rneumogabtrlc In another way also the heart is affcctet by Uxi form of poor digestion , which cause gas and fermentation from half dlgcstci food.

HitchcockSCCM Cront Merit In it IMIimt Third Ward Assessor Thomas Harrington of the Third vard appears to have won the everlasting gratitude and approval of the publisher of ho World-Herald by singling out the North- vestern Mutual Life Insurance company of Milwaukee and listing It for taxation at a valuation of $ . ' 15,000 on the claim that it lolds over $1,000,000 of mortgages In Omaha. } . M Hitchcock of the World-Herald , was once accommodated with the loan of a very argo sum of money out of the funds of this company , the repayment of which he under- ook to becuro by n mortgage upon a Tarnam street block known as Bachelors' Head quarters. When the tlmo came to settle. litchcock was not ready , and the only al- crnatlve left the company was to forccloso ts mortgage. This it undertook to do , but > y vorlaus pretenses an * through various nfluences Hitchcock has had the appralso- nentft and sales set abide and has carried the case Into the federal court of appeals ather than submit to the Infliction of a deficiency judgment. The judgment at the time It was rendered , was that Hitchcock owed the company $82,939. When 1he prop erty was sold to tatlsfy It , the company bid , t In for $74 , SCO , leaving a deficiency of SS.G79. There was no queetlon that Hltch- : ock had received the money of the original oan , aud none that the company was en titled to get It back. Thc o are the conditions , that have prompted Hitchcock's paper to touch the button on Its pulling machine and start It In operation In lauding Abeesor Thomas Har rington for placing a big assessment upon this company , and at the same time Indulge In an Incidental "aside" to the effect that this company has quit loaning money In Nebraska and started its reprebentatlvee denounclnc the laws of the Kinto. John Steel Is the local representative of the Northwestern Mutual Life. When shown the elongated puff given Arsessor Harring ton , ho declined to discuss tbo case Involv ing the mortgage , but gave some now facts. Yes , I have seen the World-Herald article you icfer to It Is almost too ridiculous to make an explanation of. "We well know tbo animus that prompted this iiutule , which I prefer not to speak about. The fncth In the cao arc that one James llii.in v\as employ eel to examine the DOUR- 1ns county records and see what amount of leans the company held bero Hn innk this list nnd went before Will Wilbur in the World-Herald otllco and swore to It It was then Riven to the asessnr , Thomas Hurrlnirton of the Third ward , who at- taUicil It to his assessment blanU. Jlr Harrington did not toll any ono of the compauv's representatives here what ho proposed to do , but tilled out his blnnk and swore hlms-elf by himself that the company should be assessed JJ15.000 on its mortgages held In this county , If Thomas Harrington knows any thins , ho ought to know thnt ho could not tn\ Individuals or corporations In other states on pernonnl property held by said persons or corporations In other states The mort gages nnd notes In question are not held in this state , but it will put our company to th annoyance of having to KO into court to get this illegal assessment set aside1. The animus In the matter can bo seen further from the fact that the Northvvebt- urn alone has been singled out for assess ment If some ono would employ Mr. Kuan probably could llnd u large num ber of foreign insurance and loan com panies holding mortgages on Omaha real estate , but I presume ho vvns not paid for that purpose A casual reader of thlH article would have thought it a political boost for Thomas Harrington , but he Is simply a tool in the hands of another party that has caused this assessment to bo The Northwestern Mutual pays many thousand dollars per annum In taxes In tills county , both on ItH real estate hold- Inert ailll US Ilisurnuc.

To the Editor of the Dee As the time for registration of voters who desire to vote at the ensuing election approaches preaches , It might bo proper to give public notice of a fact which may not bo generally understood , that under an amendment of the law pertaining to the qualifications of electors at school flections , passed at the last seBelon of the legislature , and found In section 1 , chapter 59 of the session laws of 1899 , women who desire to vote nt such oletlon must first cause themselves to bo registered the sa no as male electors. U is porslblo that there may be slight room for an opinion that this amendment is in conflict with provisions on the same subject found elsewhere In the statute aud which have been neither repealed nor amended In conformity thereto , but I be lieve that upon an examination of the whole subject. It will bo found that the amendment referred to must prevail and that women. If they would en&ure their right to veto Ser school ofllcers at the coming election , must llrst sumblt themselves for registration the batne as men. Hespeetfully , A C TROW. Confer llh "Coin" llur f > . Behind closed doors some ot the leading politicians of the Sixth ward nnd "Coin" Harvey held a conference with a number of lesser lights Tuesday night. Necessity for active work in the rresent campaign was the burden of the "executive" besslon. Steps were also taken for the polling of the ward. After this secret sotslon had como to an end the men who had participated In It helped fill the small hall and listened to ad dresses by a few of the local fusion candi dates fir county otllce The principal I speakers wore John Grossman and "Coin" 1 Harvey .

The announcement of n republican meeting In the Klghtb ward never falls to bring out n good crowd of enthusiastic \otcrs to lend to republican campaign movements thcli countenance nnd earnest support The Ulghth Ward Republican club met last night In Wolff's hall , Twenty-second nnd fuming streets , to henr the Irsues of the campaign presented , nnd the meeting drew the ever- ready largo attendance , nearly a hundred votoiB being present. President HCP Rowloy called first upon Judge n. S. Uakcr. who responded nt con siderable length nnd with evident effect Ho protested ngalnst the efforts of the opposition to fix the republican platform In the cam paign , for It was sure to put In planks that It could easily step through , while If the re publicans make their own platform the oppo sition never can break through It. lie protested that there Is no Issue this year but patriotism. Tor three years the opposition had stuck to the free sliver Issue , contending that conditions never could grow better un der the republican financial policy , but the day of prosperity Is certainly here , and seem ingly hero to stay. Ho noticed evidences of it , partcularly In the courts A few months ago when the mimmons was sent oat for a ury It was seldom that anyone summoned was found seeking an excuse on account of press of work , but the other day when the summons went forth to 150 men only twenty- nine were found ready to serve , and In nearly every caeo the excuse offered was that the party summoned had work to do that must fiuffci' If ho left It In the campaign of 1S9G , and since , hundreds who had afllllntcd with other parties were found marching In the republican ranks and wearing republican bidges because they were ashamed to follow their parties , and ho believed that the same condition will prevail In the campaign now opening. Hclev the "War Sltuntlon. Now the opposition Is crying militarism nnd Imperialism and building n republican platform upon them. On tlm subject Judga Ilakcr recounted the sttps ttiKen by the ad- mlnlbtrutlon In the Spanish war , which was conducted without thought of conquest , epohe of the necessity of providing a stable govern ment for the lands acquired by the treaty with Spain , dwelt upon the fact that the rat ification of the treaty with Spain and the In crease of the army was favored by the rep resentatives of all parties , Uryan even re- nlgnlng his position In the volunteer army to go to Washington and Induce his political friends and followers to ratify the treaty. That being the case , the opposition was as much responsible for prevailing conditions as the republicans. It Is not within the power of the president to grant Independence to the Filipinos , as that power lays with congress , and all that the president can In honor do Is to maintain a government In United States territory by carrying the flag -victory. . If he were to criticise the administration It would bo because the Filipinos are allowed so long to continue In rebellion. The quicker they are subdued the better It will bo for them and for all concerned. Over 400 years of Spanish rule o-ver them had left them still but scantily clvlllred , but ho ventured the assertion that fifty yeans under American government will work wonders toward their complete civilization. This talk about re publicans favoring militarism and imperialIsm - Ism js but another effort of the opposition to fcol somebody. AVJiUcr SpcnKN. Charles C. Winter spoke -with telling force and effect along practically the same lines , calling attention to the fact that In 1882 Diyan was using the butcher knife In his campaign to show that under a protec tive tariff the country was cursed by high prices , that In 1896 he was howling that the republican financial policy was cursing the country by low prices and that now again ho Is crying that the trusts are cursing the country with high prices. Turning to the state campaign , he said that Holcomb had been tried and found wanting , for had ho been a man of courage ami Integrity ho could have compelled an accounting by Hartley at the end of his first term , as it was his duty to do , and have thus saved the state a large amount cf money. When the crucial test had been applied to Judge Reese and ho had been commanded to do that which was wrong In his sight ho had declined to comply. The speaker condemned the fuslon- ista for their attempts to violate the Eaictlty of the ballot In the supreme court recount nnd In their succcfiiful disfranchising cf the voters of Douglas county by unseating the republican representatives from this county. Ho paid an eloquent tribute to the. states manship of President McKlnley In the con duct of the war , and said tlmt twenty ycais i from now his name would be revered with those of Washington and Lincoln. Ho clo'al with n confident prediction of the election of every man oa the republican Judicial , county and city tickets nnd declared that the republicans will plant their lUg this fall on the dome of the capital , seat Judge Kecso on the supreme bench , give President Mc Klnley an unqualified endorsement and ab- sure him of the electoral \oto in 1'JOO. Till lieTnlU * . Charles Tuttle responded to an Invitation of the president and spoke for a few minutes In a Ftrnln that stirred the crowd , Inter spersing a few humorous stories. Ho dwelt especially upon the conditions In the- Philip pines that necessitate a continuance of the policy of the administration until the In surrection shall have been suppressed and congress shall have declared a policy Ho denounced Agulnaldo as a self-constituted ruler who did not derive any authority from the nilplnoB and with whom they are not In sympathy , Mr. Tuttle closed with an appeal for each of the candidates on the county ticket , detailing the claims of each to full republican support. Short addresses were also delivered by George McHrlde , K. J. Ilodwell , D M. Vin- eonhalfr , D. M.

AR a prelude to the meeting In the In- tereat of the new- Choral society held In Hospo's hall Tuesday night , a rare little musical treat was given , which afforded In troduction to two now musicians a vocalist and an Instrumentalist and also gave the listeners opportunity to hear favorite sing- on who have been in the city for sonio time. Much Interest w.is manlfeated In MlbS Ulla Kthel Tree , the young pianist , who create 1 such a furor Sunday at the Bellstcdt concert and her playing electrified the se lect audience present. She again displayed a brilliant technit ] , but added much more poetle fervor than at her first apnearance the surroundings and the aud enco being more conducive to good results. Her first number was Moszskowski's most renowned concert etude In R flat major , a piece of many dlfllcult pnsangce , the readIng - Ing being alone n task of no mean proper tions. The performer played the btudy as though she loved It and gave the music a fine Interpretation. After the flattering re ceptlon that followed her appearance she responded with Chopin's r sharp major Impromptu , which was also received with great enthusiasm. The other musician was Mr. Garelssen , who displayed a bass \olco of exceptionally good quality and tlmbro In "King Duncan's Daughters" by Frances AlJItsen. Miss Kellog sang- very sweetly "Without Thee" by D'Hardelot and ns an encore gave "My Wco Bird , " a berceuse by Roy Smith , a Nebraska composer , who has caught the ear of the public with several dainty songs. A quartet , comprisingMrs. . Thomas J. Kelly , Miss Bishop , Dan Wheeler and Mr. Oarrelssen , sang "The Water Lily" by Gado nnd "Good Night , Good. Night , Beloved" by Plnsutl. Mr. Hospo made n short speech outlining the policy of the society , In which he urged the pcoplo present to work for its succeso. Mr. Kelly made a bright talk , recounting the choral societies which had been organ- bed In the past and telling how they one by one had expired after moro or less use ful cireers. Mr. GareJssen pledged his cf- forti and hearty support In a short address. The society was organized and J. M. Woolworth - worth selected for president. W. S. Popple- ton and n.

Hcpalrs to the nsphalt pavement on Twenty-fourth street cost the city about M.- 600 this year. The Rtrcet IS now In a fair condition and It is expected that no moro repairing will bo needed until next spring. When It was first decided to make the re pairs City Engineer Heal went over the ground nt\d \ estimated that the expense would bo $950. No action was taken by the council for several wci'ks nftor this estimate wns made nnd the holes In the pavement were deeper so that when the making of actual repairs commenced the cost of the work v\.ia considerably Increased Mnvor Kn or sug gested some tlmcngo that a contract be made with some pivlng company to Keep the street In first-class condition for a certain sum pi r year He favored advertising foi bids for the work and letting a contract to the lowest re sponsible bidder This plan was Informally dlsciKsed , but no action WOH taken by the municipal family. City Knglneer neat also favors n plin similar to the ono suggested by the mayor. Mr Deal assorts that In Omaha contracts are made with paving com panies for the keeping In repair of asphalt covered atreets , the city ptylng from 5 to S cents per square yaid for the entire surface of the street. Thcro Is In the Twenty-fourth street pavement about 10,000 square yards , and If a contract at 0 cents a yard could be made \\\i \ \ ( wruld mean $2,000 n year. Considering the condition of the street nnd the ago of the pavement , engineer Heal considers that a contract at J2.000 a year would be n splendid Investment for the city.

Ano'her conclusion has been reached , and which la In the main icsponsl- blo for the hc.vvy buying going on now , not only In the south , but the wett ns well The beef supply available next spring does not figure out as going to be as great .is the de mand , consequently there Is n great likeli hood that beef will be high. To counteract this high market and to btipply such con sumers as will not find themselves iblo to buy the high priced beef all the tlmo there Is a strong possibility that much mutton will bo consumed , and thc'c sheep buyers are getting ready for such demand. "Tho latest purchase of forty carloids of Now Mexico lambs and yearling wethcis by a big Nebraska feeder at a cct , of 52 30 per head at point of loading Is a price that can not help but render a handsome profit when marketing tlmo comes.

I resolved to try Mrs. Pinkham's medicines , and after taking several bottles tles of Compound , also used the Liver Pills and Sanative Wash , I can truly say I am enjoying a new life. Menses have become regular , and last the proper length of time. 1 feel better than I have for ten years. I praise your medicine to all my friends.

PINKHAM About two years ago I began to run down and soon became almost a wreck. I lost my appe tite and began to lose flesh ; my blood was impoverished nnd I had to leave our store. The doctor gave me a little tonic , but I steadily grew worse nnd consulted another doctor. He helped me in some ways , but my headaches continued , and I began to have night sweats and my rest was so disturbed that I would have hysteria and would cry and worry over business matters and my poor health. Finally , husband took me South , but with benefit. This no was a year ago ; no one can ever know what a winter of misery I spent. Would bloat after eating and was troubled with palpitation of heart and whites. Having read by happy chance of your medicine. I bought it and wrote for your advice , and before having fim&hed the first bottle of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound , the hysterics nearly stopped and I slept soundly. I used seven or eight bottles with such benefit that I am as healthy as I can ever remember of being. I shall never cease to sound your r.raises.-nrs , E , fl.
