Y Concerning the general criticism among
fuslonlsts ot the form of the ballot relating
to district Judges , and the particular as
sault upon him because of It by the World-
Herald , County Clerk Havcrly has made
the following statement :
OMAHA , Nov. 13. To the Editor of the
World-Herald ! I have read your editorials
In your morning Issue of the World-Herald
of Tuesday , November 7 , entitled "A Warn
ing to Voters. " and that of Wednesday
evening , November 8 , under the caption
"Thou Shalt Not Steal , " In which you charge
mo with willful Intent to so construct the
omclal ballot an to befog and mislead the
voters of Douglas county , and that I was
us putty In the hands of a machine or com
bine , etc. , etc. This Is the first opportunity
1 have had to answer your unjust and un
warranted attack. I deslro to submit here
with the history of the official ballot re
ferred to , and ask that you give It equal
publicity with your two articles , that my
follow citizens may bo fully advised , to the
end that no unjust criticism may re t upon
tno In their minds In connection with this
matter. I have endeavored to bo courteous
to all In the administration ot the duties of
this offlco. I have discharged the duties
along my own Ideas and have not been
dominated by any man , combine or raa-
chlno. I have endeavored to bo a servant
ot all the people. I bellevo had you In
vestigated the matter your articles would
not have appeared.
lllntory of nniclnl Ilnllot.
After the nominations were made and were
certified to this offlco I had prepared a
bulletin upon which I placed the names of
, all parties nominated and by whom noml-
\ natcd. On the 19th day of October , 1899 , I
/ sent the following letter to tbo different
political county central committees :
"Your attention Is called to a bulletin
which shows the nominees of the different
parties to bo voted for at the coming No
vember election for Douglas county , Ne
braska , which Is now ready and open for
your Inspection.
"I would rotiucst that you call nnd cx-
nmlno tbo same , and eco that tbo names
arc correctly spelled , and that they appear
Y thereon for the offlco for which they were
J nominated. I would also call your atten-
' tlon to the fact that It Is the duty ot the
county clerk to have the sample ballots on
file for Inspection ten (10J ( days prior to
the election ( October 28) , nnd request that
you call nnd oxamlno the same and see that
It Is technically correct , that there may bo
no objections thereto after It Is too late to
correct tbo same. "
The above letter was sent to the following
named persons , tow It : Ed P. Smith , chair
man democratic Judiciary committee. New
York Llfo building ; Louis V.Guye , chair
man people's Independent Judiciary commit
tee , CIO South Thirteenth street ; Thomas
F. Sturgcsa , secretary silver republican
Judiciary committee , care Omaha Bee ;
John T. Hart , secretary democratic county
committee , 938 North Twenty-third street ;
M. H. Collins , chairman republican county
committee , Karbach block ; Lawrence Rath ,

YcUer. 'chairman people's * Independent
cqurity.icoranilttc .t'.iori New-P-York Llfo
building ; II. II. " BaldrTge , chairman repub
lican Judiciary committee. New York Lite
building.
On October 27 the printers had the sample -
plo ballot printed , a copy of which was
placed In my ofllco open for Inspection. I
then sent word again to the different com
mittees Interested , as well as to many of the
prominent candidates , and earnestly re-
fiucsfcd them to promptly call and examine
It to see that there vvero no technical errors
Jn the ballot. In response to this request
the different committees examined the ballot
and the general consensus of opinion was
that the ticket ns formed was In every way
satisfactory , and I have the written O. K. of
the secretary of the republican county cen
tral committee , and the secretary of the
democratic county committee to this effect ,
/ the other committees saying that the ticket
I -xvas all right , but withheld their O. K. on
/ * account of the mandamus proceedings then
pending against the placing of the name of
Martin Langdon upon the ballot , and also
had in mind their contemplated mandamus
proceedings respecting the placing of the
names of the people's Independent party
nominees Instead ot tbo republican nominees
fliet on the ballot , which later on man
damus proceedings vvero Instituted and
decided by his _ honor , Judge Powell , In
favor of the ballot as prepared by me.
\ No objections vvero made by any ono on
J\ \ the formation ot the ticket until the 2d
Jy ' day of November , after G o'clock p m. , after
both tbo odlclal and sample ballots had
been printed and the sample ballots dis
tributed , and this single objection being
made by I. J. Dunn. I then told this party
objecting that It was too late to make any
change , that the sample ballot was dis
tributed and the offlclal ballot printed.
I would also call your attention to the
concluslvo fact that the total number of re
jected ballots on the Judiciary ticket for
the county Is 291 , This Includes blank and
rejected ballots , and the total Is Insufficient
to change the result. Furthermore , the total
of thcao rejected and blank ballots for South
Omaha Is 9. South Omaha Is democratic
and ono would expect the greatest less there
'to the judicial ticket If your assertions In
the editorials complained of herein were
correct. '

the different central committees were noti
fied to call and Inspect the ballot , and they
rcaponded to the call , and we received the
written 0. K. ot the republican and demo
cratic county committed , the other commit
tees eaylng the ticket wan all right In form ,
but withheld their written approval on ac
count of the mandamus proceeding * con
templated and pending , and after the deci
sion of the court sustaining the action of
the county clerk the official ballot was
printed , and no objection was made until
after the ballot was printed and too late to
make- any change. And knowing D. M.
Haverly so well and Intimately , I am sure
that ho is Incapable of a trick to take nd-
vantage of any one In his own Interest , or
anybody cine , and I wish to eny further that
by reason of his fidelity to his'omclal duties
he neglected his canvnsa almost entirely and
depended on his friends and his administra
tion of the offlco during the past term for
support.

State of Nebraska , Douglas County , ES :
U. a. Solomon , being first duly sworn , on
oath sajs that ho Is the chief clerk In the
tax department In the ofllco of D. M. Hav
erly , county clerk ; that he , under the direc
tion of said county clerk , prepared the offi
cial and sample ballots used at the election
held on the 7lh day of November , 1899 , us
well as a bulletin upon which was placed
the name of the party nominees , and that
tbo sample ballot and bulletin wcro dis
played In a conspicuous place at all times
during office hours for the Inspection ot the
voters of said county ; that by Instruction
of the county clerk the different county
central committees were advised of the sarn-
plo ballot being on exhibition nnd were re
quested to call nnd examine the same. In
order that there might bo no technical er
rors to correct after It was too late to do
BO ; that there were no objections made by
any of the different parties to the manner
nnd form of the ballot ; thnt the 0. K. of
the secretary of the republican county cen
tral commlttco and the democratic central
committee were made In writing upon said
ballot. The other county central commlt-
tcco withheld their O. K. for the reason that
mandamus proceedings were then instituted ,
or about to bo Instituted , relating to the
placing of the name of Martin Langdon for
county Judge , and that of the nominee of
the people's Independent party being placed
first upon tbo ballot. The Judicial cart of
the ticket contained the names of fifteen
candidates , seven of whom were republicans ,
und seven had the endorsement of the pee
ple's Independent nnd democratic conven
tion , and ono nominated by petition and had
the endorsement of the silver republican
committee. That no objections were made
until the night of the 2d ot November ,
ifter the official and sample ballots were
printed and the sample ballots distributed.
This objection was to the effect that there
was not sufficient space between the names
ot the nominees of the people's Independent
party , the democratic party , and that of the
candidate by petition , who had the endorse
ment of the silver republican party. But
by reference to the election law of the
state of Nebraska , section 140 , will be found
the Instructions for making up the ballot ,
which says : "That the space intervening
between the names ot the candidates of the
same party for the same offlco anall bo 3-16
Qf an Inch , and the space between the names
ot candidates of different parties shall be
} l of an Inch , " which law was
strictly compiled with , and will so appear
by Inspection.

Just after The Bee had reeled off Its edi
tion on Us presses Wednesday evening a
member of the btaff took down the telephone
to call up the Milliard hotel. The wires
seemed to have been crossed on the central
keyboard , and this Is the conversation bo
heard :
"Hello , there ! IB that you , Web ? Did
5 on tec The Dee tonight ? Doesn't that beat
all ? "
" .No ; I haven't seen It yet , "What's In It ? "
"What's In It ? Why , some chump be
longing to our league has been putting down
In a memorandum book everything that's
happened since we started out , and the
blamed fool has lost It and It's been sent In
to The Hee , "
"What's tliat you say ? "
"Keep out , central. Hello , there Is that
you. Web ? "
"Yes ; go ahead. "
"Well , they've got the whole story. How
we worked Palmer Into the deal and what
a bull the World-Herald made when It gave
away the purpose of the league to knife the
whole ticket , and how wo had to send Our-
Icy down to square It and afterward call
Flehcr In so that the World-Herald wouldn't
spoil the whole pie. I wonder who It can
be. "
"Well. 1 don't know. "
"It must have been somebody right on the
Inside ; otherwise how would they know thnt
wo did not Invltn anybody except those we
could depend upon to cut the whole ticket ,
and then pulled In a few of Hosewatcr's
friends to throw them off tbo track ? And
how else would they know , too , that we had
fixed It up with the World-Herald to print
all your speeches and that jou were to keep
them supplied with Imperialism talk for use
with the foreign voters ? Do you think some
one has turned traitor ? "
"I hardly bellcvo that , H Is simply as
you eny , some chump thnt has written down
all ho know as a memorandum and then let
It get Into the hands of The Dee. How
many of us have they got In It ? "
"More than they ought to have , although
only a few names are mentioned. H tclla
nil about the way we raised our money and
the scheme for permanent quarters. Won
der how they knew Ourley had won money
on bets on democratic candidates. Hold on
there , central , we're not through yet. Is
that you yet , Web ? "
"Yee. "
"Well , I told Gurley he should not bo so
anxious to mrvko money by offering to bet
publicly on democrats oven If ho did think
It was n sure thing. John 1 > . Kennedy made
a pretty muss , too. What did ho want to
promlso a contribution to the county com-
mtttco for It ho did not Intend to put It up
and while ho was working the ether way ?
You did better than that when you told them
there was nothing In It for you and you
didn't eco why you should put up at all.
That diary Is a dead give-away on nroatch.
I thought ho was smoother than that and
that ho did not even let our own people
know ho had the key to the combination.
I don't suppose ho carea , though. Don't BOO
how It can bo stopped now. The Dee has got
the whole thing. What's | hat you say ? We
keep right on with our plan ? You would
rather see democrata In the offices than any
republican outside of our crowd ? Well , I
feel that way , too. May as well stick to our
democratic allies as long as wo can't run
the regular party organization by ourselves.
Hope no other fool will cough up our
secrete. "
"No , not through yet , central. "
"Hello , Web , hello. Well , never mind ,
central. Let It go. "
PRAYERS READ FROM A BOOK
Ceremonial of I3i > lncopiil Service In
Explained nnd Defended Iiy
Itcv. IrilnK I * . Joliimon.
The ceremonies and customs which have
grown up around the Episcopal church dur
ing the centuries since Us Institution , form
a most attractvo historical study , and In
a scrlea of lectures , Ilev. Irving P. John
son of South Omaha Is taking up those
subjects In a popular way. Thursday night
at St. Paul's church Mr. Johnson answered
the question , "Why Do Wo Say Prayers
Out ot a Book ? " The speaker began by
repeating the verso from St. Matthews ,
"When yo pray , be not as the hypocrites
nre , for they love to pray standing on the
street corner and In the synagogue. "
"People say , " continued Mr. Johnson ,
"that God does not want a ceremonial wor
ship ; that Ho would prefer words spoken
In His pralso to bo extemporaneous ; from
the heart , and without set form. In the
first place , how does any ono presume to
say what God wants or does not want ? As
a matter of fact the only service that
God ever Instituted was a ceremonial wor
ship In which Ho presented very minutely
what ceremonies should bo used and even
how the priests' vestments should be
trimmed. , r > > ,
"So far as we know from the holy scrip
ture , Jesus Christ never conducted nn ex
temporaneous service. Ho preached ser
mons In public , but never , so far as we
know , made an extemporaneous prayer. He
certainly did worship frequently according
to the ritual In the temple. St. John , also ,
when he describes In Revelations the wor
ship of heaven , describes a ceremonial and
not an extemporaneous service.
"Taklnir hlHtorlcnl vlnur
n thn i =
record of an extemporaneous record before -
fore the sixteenth century. Surely If * Is
fitrango that In all the ages of Christian
worship It should have been reserved for
the last three centuries to worship God
In the only approved method.
"Tho objection Is made that prayers read
from a book do not come from the heart.

FIGHTING OVER THE SPOILS
Fusion Managers Haye Difficulty in Satis *
fying All the Olans.
DEMOCRATS MUST GIVE WAY TO CONVERTS
.Vlipnrilnninrnt of Appointr ! Oflleeft
Het-iveen Purlieu ntnl Within
the ItnnkH i\eltoa Turmoil
mill Contention ,
The partial victory won by the fusionIsts -
Ists In Douglas county has culminated In a
mad scramble for the loaves nnd fishes , and
promises' made before election have fallen
to a low discount. Since the returns proved
the success of the fusion candidates for
clerk of the court , sheriff and treasurer , the
leaders have been putting their heads to
gether nnd resolved arbitrarily to deter
mine who shall nnd who shall not connect
with the salary roll , The disposition of the
populists to divorce themselves from the
trlumvlrato as manifested In the last cam
paign has forced the democratic managers
to rcprcsB their ravenous appetites and con-
ccdo to the populists n share of the spoils.
Democratic conimlttccmcn luuo been busy
for several days deciding upon the appor
tionment of the officco with the end In view
of placating the hostility existing among
factions in their own ranks , even when to
do this prominent democratic workers who
have been hewing the party wood and carryIng -
Ing the party water for years have to bo
turned down.
I'nt l-oril In Cut Out.
For example , Pat Ford , the democratic
wheclhorso of the Third word , was assured
3f the position of county jailer nnd on the
strength of the assurance worked night and
: lay for Power , but Ford's laurels are to bo
snatched from him nnd given to a populist ,
James B. Jones , president of the Peter
Cooper club. Jones , although not endorsed
by the populist committee nor by the club ,
das the favor of the plecutters , with the re
sult that the ehcrlff-elcct has accepted the
edict to make Jones jailer.
Another deal said to have been closed
Is the appointment of Charles Posplssel , an
other populist , who has the support of the
machine , as ono of the sheriff's deputies.
The populists have also secured the ap
pointment of John W. Barnctt as one of
the clerks under County Treasurer-elect El-
Basscr. Secretary Morearty of the popu
list county committee has been grooming
himself for a place In the district court
clerk's office and counts on the solid backing
of the machine manipulators.
So far as the populist part of the situation
is concerned , things seem therefore to bo
in a pacific condition. But among the dem
ocrats the wool Is flying like a prize sheep-
shearing contest. All sorts of threats arc
being made against the machine. Demo
crats protest that the populists ate hogging
It and that the tall Is wagging the dog.
Content llet eeu > iitloiinlltlt < ri.
Still another source of contention is aris
ing from the allotment of the offices to the
different nationalities. The leaders have
undertaken to say that each of the suc
cessful candidates shall appoint such and
such Bohemians , such and such Germans ,
such and such Swedes , etc. , and naturally
the ordinary every-day political worker ,
who has not the advantage of foreign birth ,
wants to know where he comes in.
The Bohemians , In particular , are being
eyed with jealous glances , because , accordIng -
Ing to the slate , they nre to bo given balm
for falling to elect any of the Bohemian
nominees on the ticket.
It Is understood that Editor Roslcky , who
played a star role In the Bohemian defec
tion , Is down for a place on the revised
police commission should the Herdmanltes
get their board restored.
Vnc Buresh , whose grievance was held
up for Qvengemcnt because he slipped In
his aspiration for a republican nomination ,
expects to be kept In his present position
as a deputy In the treasurer's office , while
Vcdlcka , another Bohemian , who served on
the election board as a republican , Is to be
rewarded with a place In Broadwell's office
In recognition of his signature to the cir
cular appealing to the Bohemians to vote
the straight fusion ticket.
More ISohemlnn Discontent.
In the sheriff's office the flght Is on be
tween Prlborsky , a republican bolter , for
deputy and Havclka , a democrat , now work
ing In the capacity of bartender at the
Crelghton theater bar. Bohemian demo
crats who have been voting the ticket right
along are asking themselves what they nre
to expect If the republicans who turned
tall on the eve of election are to have all
the lucrative jobs.
Similar sources of dissatisfaction are dis
playing themselves In other nationalities
and , while the victors have the spoils , It
Is a question whether they are to be a
burden or a benefit.

Sick Women Advised to Seek
Advice of Mrs. Pinkham.
[ LETTER TO IISI. HNK1IAU NO. 94,86 ] ]
"I had inflammation and falling1
of the xvomb , and inflammation of
ovaries , and was in great pain. I took
medicine prescribed by a physician ,
but it did mo no good. At last I heard
of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com
pound , and niter using It faithfully I
am thankful to say I am a well women.
I would advise all suffering women to
seek advice of Mrs. Pinkham. " MRS.
G. H. CIIAPPELL , QUANT PABK , ILL.
" For several years my health was
miserable. I suffered tl\o most dread
ful pains , and was almost on the verge
of insanity. I consulted ono of the
test physicians in New York , and ho
pronounced my disease a fibroid tumor ,
advising an operation without delay ,
saying that it was my only chance for
life. Other doctors prescribed strong
and violent medicine , and one said I
was incurable , another told mo my
only salvation was galvanic batteries ,
which I tried , hut nothing relieved me.
Ono day a friend called and begged mete
to try Lydla B. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound. I began its use and took
several bottles. From the very first
bottle there was a wonderful change
for the bettor. The tumor has disap
peared entirely nnd my old spirits have
returned. I heartily recommend your
medicine to all suffering women. "
