THE OMAHA DAILY BEE: BUNDAY. NOVEMBER 1, 1903.
3 VOTERS FAIL TO REGISTER x Lut Opportunity Hot Taken Adfantug of bj a Large Number. DERELICT ONES NOT IN ANY ONE PARTY Mrfi Cnart Orders Unffr Bal lots Printed with Separate Circle, for Eaeh of the Fasloa Parties. From a Staff Correspondent.) LINCOLN. Oct. HI (Special.) The lat day of registration here was, if anything, mora disappointing than the other two, sue to some extent ponnlbly to the ex tremely Inclement weather,' It having; rained here continuously from early Ust night. Neither party, however, can claim much advantage In the registration, for both will fall short of last year to a great number. The per cent of fuMonlnts who filled to come up la, however, greater than that of the republicans, so there is no re ilclng In that camp tonight. . In the meantime most of the Active work bl both the republican and fusion head quarters has been completed and all that regains to be done Is to draw In the lines that have been thrown out during the campaign. The fuslonlats are elated be cause It Is rainy, they claim, because rainy weather means that the pops will come to town, being willing to sacrifice a rainy day for the sake of the party. This belief of the funlonlsts that all the pops live on farms may be well taken, but that does not mean, said a leading repub lican, that all the people living on farms aim fuslonlsts. In fact, during the last few years the great Increase In the ranks of the republican party has come largely from the farms, and IT this rainy weather makes It Impossible for a populist to work, thus giving him an excuse to come to town, it will work the same way on the repub lican farmer voter. Anyhow, the republicans are not uneasy whether It rains, pours or Just stays dry. The state committee has done good work anil the party la so well organised over the state that It will be ready for any sur prises the two-headed . aggregation may try to spring. The work of the two com mittees, of course, now will be devoted largely1 to getting the nonreglstered voter to swear In his vote and as the time draws near It Is predicted that many will do this. There Is little .expuse for any voter to stay at home, because not only have the workers been among these people, who al ways vote, but they have done a good tunt among the stay-at-home men. Chairman Lindsay is not Just yet Issuing any statement as to whether Judge Barnes' majority will be 10,000 or 15,000, but he is confident of success and he ought to be, for the reports received at the headquarters have been most flattering. Strange as It may seem .Chairman Weber of me populist headquarters Is also confident, but he bases all his hopes on the wet weather, contrary to the national impression that democrats don't like water. Divide Tartles on Ticket. The supreme court. In extra session this afternoon,' granted a peremptory writ of mandamus to James R. Farris and Milton Schwlnd to compel County Clerk Frye to divide the names of the populists aad dem ocratic parties on the official ballot, using the circle after each Instead of placing them In brackets, as. upon the sample ballot Issued by Secretary of State Marsh, As soon as the writ was applied for yes terday afternoon Mr. Frye gave an order for tickets with the names divided, having no Intention of taking advantage of either of the parties composing the fusion aggre gation. The populists, however, refused to top the proceedings and the supreme court had another opportunity to .make a ruling. Just why the division Is wanted In Lan caster county does not appear, inasmuch as the parties are fused here and both have endorsed the republican district Judicial nominees. Baspfcloaa of Foal Flay. Coroner Hawes of Falrbury was here to day to have Dr. Nicholson of the State university examine the stomach of Jeff Smith, who died Thursday night under clr cumstancea that point to arsenic poisoning. 80 far as known there was no motive for the murder of Smith, but the attending physician was under the Impression that he had been slowly poisoned with arsenic, A Jury was empanneled by the coroner, but the verdict will not be arrived at until after ' the chemist makes his report.

It Is expected in the near future that the three harvester concerns In this city will consolidate and two of them para out of ti istence so far as Lincoln Is concerned. Just when the combination of local Inter ests Is to occur Is a matter of conjecture, except that It Is understood that It is to come soon. One seemingly knowing In ONLY A SUQQESTION. Bat It Has Proves of Interest aad Common sense would suggest that If one wishes to become fleshy and plump It can only result from the food we eat and digest, and that food should be albuminous or flesh forming food, like eggs, beefsteak, and ce reals. In other words, the kinds of food that make flesh are the foods which form the greater part of our dally bills of fare. But the trouble Is that while we eat enough and generally too much, the stom ach, from abuse and overwork, does not properly digest and assimilate It, which Is the reason so many people remain thin and Under weight; the digestive organs do not completely digest the food forming beef. teak and eggs and similar wholesome food. There are thousands of such who are really confirmed dyspeptics, although they may have no particular pain or inconven ience from their stomachs. If such persons would Uy their prejudices suuae ana make a regular practice of taklnsr after each meal one or two of Stuart's Dys pepsia Tablets, the food would be quickly and thoroughly digested, because these tab lets contain the natural peptones and d'la tase which every weak stomach lacks, and by supplying this want the stomach la noon enabled to reach Its natural tone and Vigor. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets digest every form of flash forming food meat, ema. bread and potatoes and this is the reason tney so quickly build up, strengthen and In vlgorate thin, dyspeptic men, women and cnuaren.

Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets Is the moat auccesaful and most widely known of any remedy for stomach troubles, because it Is the most reasonable and scientific of mod ern medicines.

After a struggle lasting eighteen months William K. Van- derbllt, Jr., has succeeded In gaining per mission to close the public highway leading to Lake Success, on his Long Island estate. near Hempstead. Falling to purchase the lake after acquir ing his estate In and around that body of water, Mr. Vanderbllt asked for the lease of a strip of ground that forms the connecting- link between the old road and the waters of the lake. There was nothing of record to show that the board of trustees of North ITempstesd ever acquired owner ship of the disputed right-of-way to the lake save by use. The Idea that Mr. Van derbllt would stock the ctrem with fish and hold it as a private preserve raised much opposition. Previous to the election a year ago he made an offer of 850,000 to the town for the lake. It was determined to settle the ques tion by the ballot. So intense was the feel ing that the vote polled was more than that at the presidential election and the offer was rejected. Finally Mr. Vanderbllt appeared before the trustees and applied for a leave run ning nlnety-n'ne years. In return for which concession he proposed opening a road to the lake by another route. His opponents still refused to capitulate, but the matter was put to a vote of the board and he won.

CHETENNE. Wyo., Oct. 81. (Special Telegram.) There were sensational devel opments this afternoon In the case of Tom Horn, the range detective, who Is sen tenced to be hanged on November 20 for the murder ot Willie Nlckell, when his attorneys petitioned Governor Chstterton to commute the sentence to life Imprison ment. A Urge number of affidavits were submitted with the appeal, and In a' num ber of cases the affiants charge that Tom Horn did not kill the boy. Miss Gwendoline Myrtle Klmmell, a school teacher, who lived at Iron Moun tain when the crime was committed, but now of Kansas City, swears that Victor Miller, son of Nlckell's neighbor, confessed that he killed the boy. Ollle Whatman, an Iron Mountain ranch man. makes the same statement Some persons who testified against Horn now swear that they were Jobbed wit nesses, and also swear that Horn's con fession was a put-up job, and that ha really made no confession at all. Governor Cbatterton has taken the mat ter under advisement, and will render a decision next week. While the appeal Is strong, and has a tendency to create doubt. It Is believed the governor will refuse to Interfere with the action of the courts, and Tom Horn, the friend of General Miles and Colonel Cody, scout and trailer, must hang No vember 20. Nothing Is being done at the county Jail to prepare for an execution, and nothing will be done until the governor renders his decision.
