Hnry F. thr f AlHm, who res:gnd
from the chairmanship of the repub.lcan
n.te central committee because of press
of private busine and the llln" of his
wife, was a caller el the state headquar
tera. "Mr. Lehr-" visit demonstrated better
titan anything elm- that h. resigi.arlr n m
not the result of uisautisfaxlion with the
nominee or the propria d conduct of the
campaign," declared Chairman Burgers. He
rae every Indlcati'ia that he Is anxiu for
republican success In Nebraska this year
end 1 doing what he can la bring it about.
He in the head of one of the beat county
organisations we have, and a republican,
ail the time. He expressed the belief that
the republican ticket will carry the Hate
raslly thl year."
Chairman Purge s.lso ha taken occa
ion to deny statements to the cffct tha.t
National Commituwnmn R. B. Schneider
of Fremont Is trying to arrange matter
o that republican members of the next b-g-
lslatura would be unfriendly to the Farm
ers" and independent elevator Interests of
the stale. The fart that Mr. Schneider la
heavily Interested In the grain and ele
vator business, not only in Nebraska, but
throughout the west. wa raid to have been
uand a the basis for this argument.
"Th matter was brought up at the meet
Ing of tha committee and candidates last
Saturday," aaid Chairman Burguas, "and
Mr. Schneider denied ajiy such Interest or
efforts. His statement satisfied the In
quire and Jeft no doubt but that tha re
ports are unfounded. There la pimply no
truth In these allegations, which have been
started by tha democratlo press for cam
paign fuel."
Effort era under way toward retting
speakers of national prominence from the
eaat to apeak In .Nebraska, but who may
be assigned will not be known till after
the first of the month. Borne of the best
stump talkers of the party are In view and
no pains or effort will be spared to get the
best there Is to expound republican doc
trine to reputolioans and other open-minded
voters of the state.
Efforts' f local democrats to organise a
Parker and Davis league in - Omaha are
limping along without much display of
spontaneity or enthusiasm. , After the St.
Louis convention leaders of the defunct
Success league, which was unmercifully
turned down at tha primaries, announced
that a big Jollification meeting would be
held to gloat over the downfall of Bo an
In the national convention. Le-ter this idea
was abandoned and a plain "ratification"
meeting at which W. J. Bryan and demo
crats of all factions would be Invited was
proposed. Finding do special response to
this proposition, the Suocee leagtffcrs
dumped the thing on the Jacksonian club,
which stood It In a dark and lonely ooroer,
to accentuate the "ghastilness" that Dan
Custer talks about. No tneetiag of any
kind ha been held and since the fusion
deal at Lincoln about every democrat In
town of any prominence not out for an
office begs to be excused when asked to
talk "politic. The proposal lor a Parker
league 1 the last hope of the chosen few
who desire to reap a harvest by federal
appointment tf the democratic ticket should
win out.
While little Is being said and the work
jelng done at republican state headquarters
is on the Quiet, It has been given out thnt
cue of the principal campaign documents
to be used in the state fight la the re
markable showing the republican state ad
ministration has made in the economical
conduct of publlo institutions. Figures al
J ready prepared show a great saving over
' the last fusion regime, the analysis re
's veallng that it has coat 118 less per inmate
f per annum under the Mickey administra
tion than when stats affairs were handled
by the democrats said pops.
No secret whatever Is being made of the
fact that the Union Pacific is doing all It
can to force the nomination of W. F. Gurley
for congress. Political callers In John N.
i Baldwin's office are told so frankly and
i urged to work for the road's preferred
candidate, The Burlington, also, is not
' Inclined to place any obstacles In Gurley's
path. Burlington man said the other
day: "Yea, the Union Pacific gets the
credit of backing Gurley, but we are en
tirely satisfied with conditions, reports to
' the contrary notwithstanding."
"I doubt whether the railroads will dare
to get out and bustle openly for Gurley
at the primaries," said the local attorney
; for a third railway company. "I should
think the lesson taught two years ago In
' the Mercer fight should be sufficient. It
' was the activity jf the railroad agents at
the polls and throughoia'. the whole scrap

PAINFUL AILMENT.
Think what this means. Imagine the
amount of misery that exists and is endured
simply because people do not know there Is
an absolute cure.
The only way to cur any complaint is to
remove ths cause. There are very few dis
eases or ailments that can be cured by ex
ternal application and piles is not on of
them. 1'Ues can be cured; the treatment
nt, however, be internal, for the cause of
piles is an internal disorder of the liver or

plenty of mol.ture sire the last Burllnr

mont, Sutton and Hasting on the Lincoln
division of the B. & M the surface of the
ground Is somewhat dry and practically
no fall plowing Is being done. There la
also a narrow strip of country between
Norcatur and Kanona where the around

there Is no suffering for the want of mois

grain crops have turned out better than
was predicted when the harvest began.
This is particularly true of the Llnco'n

Wymote division complaints verify the un
favorable reports first sent out. On the
Alliance division the harvesting has been
somewhat later than on the western di

yield ia also reported on the Sheridan
division.
Com la in good condition on all parts of
the line west of the Missouri. All the re
ports of this crop are exceedingly favor
able and the only danger now to be feared
is an early and severe frost.
The pastures and range are still In ex

northwest are turning brown, the feed is
still good and cattle are In superb shape
for the market. Haying is about finished
and the crop win be a large one.
Sugar bwts are in splendid ahape and
the danger from dry weather is now past.

In Good Faith.
The mandamus proceeding begun by the
Nebraska Bitullthlc company to compel
Comptroller Lobeck to Issue a warrant to it
for the payment of 13.091.70 for paving re
pairs, was heard by District Judge Kedick
yesterday.
City Attorney "Wright appeared for the
comptroller and said the latter official was
ready to order the amount paid, but had
been estopped by the Intervention of
Charles E. Fanning, who opposed the mat
ter before the council and has since given
notice that he intends to appeal to the
courts from the order for payment.
Attorney TV. J. Connell, who represented
the petitioner, declared the action of Fan
ning was not brought in good faith and
was In the nature of a "holdup." The court
took the matter under advisement.

PURCHASE LIKELY 10 BE POSTPONED
L-al Objections Their lee sfvet
Be Hratitl ky Legislative Aetlea
Before the Machine tan Be
I aed In Ontnha.
The c ity council '1 m s-v-..y night declined to
adopt a report presented by Councllmen
Nicholson and Evans declaring that the
city is not financially able at this time
to buy voting machines and postponing
the mattir indefinitely. Councilman Hoye
said thnt the Juit.t committee from the
Omaha and South Omal.a councils and the
Koaid of Coui.ty Commissioners would pre
sent a rtport within a week, comprehend
li.g the objections raised by the city at
torney, and making recommendations. He
asked that the Nicholson report be recom
mitted and considered with the other. This
was ordered, only Nicholson, Evsna and
Huntington voting against It.
City Attorney Wrlgbt, In an opinion, said
he did not think the eity bad the right to
enter into a contract for muchlnee on the
installment plan, thus mortgaging fulur
city revenues, nor to make the purchase
without advertising for bids. He also
pointed out certain sections of the statutes
which militate ogainet the use of votlna
machines, one of them being the limitation
of iiKi voters to a machine. He advised
that nothing be done for a while, as the
city would not really need the macninoe
for use until UuE.
Whit May Be Recommended.
Councilman Hoye said that the oommlt
tue will probably recommend the purchase
of sixty-eight Standard machines, the con
tract not to be signed until after the laws
have been changed at the legislative ses
sion next wln'.er and all thauoe for legal
diflicultlcs removed.
Acting Mayor Zlmman Introduced his
ordinance making it obligatory upon city
emrioye6 or appointive oflloere to pay their
debts or subject themselves to dismissal.
The ordinance is brief and provides that in
cases where debts that have been reduced
to a Judgment are evaded, the offenders
shall be removed from the service of the
city.
The rejection of the bid of the Nebraska
Bithulithic company for repaying South
Thirty-second avenue west of Haneoom
park with asphalt at $1.71 a yard, was
reconsidered and the award approved. A
recess .was taken until this morning at 11
o'clock, so the council can meet and ap
prove the contract In order to expedite
the work. The bid was turned down a
week ago because It was thought too high
and the eouncllmen wanted a chance to
Investigate.
luklag for Krw Fire Hoase.
A resolution was sdopted directing that
suitable temporary quarters be obtained
for the fire department force in the house
at Twenty-fourth and Cuming street in
order that the bouse, which ha been de
clared unsafe, may be torn down and an
other built as soon a th eity ha the
necessary fund.
Comptroller Lobeck was directed to fur
nish the city claim agent with a list of
leases for city property and Information
whether or not th rent had been paid
and the amounts owing In each case. This
was done to help along the work started
by Acting Mayor Zlmman to get efty prop

lead her to the absconding spouse or sup
ply Information that will disclose his where

me," writes Mrs. Scannell to Chief of Po
lice Donahue. And instead of time lending
enchantment, or, in other words, softening
the wrath of this deserted wife. It has ma
terially accentuated it.
"I want to advertise this man," she
wrote, to keep him from marrying some
girl and ruining her life, as be Is not di
vorced from me."
The letter lays bare the broken heart of
a wronged woman.
"My husband deserted me four years
ago," It says, "leaving with me four chil
dren, tiie oldest of whom was 7 years of
age. I have had to slave to keep them
alive and the 15 reward that I offer for the
arret t of this man is all that I can give.
The warrant ia out against him, so do not
be afraid to arrest h(ni."
The letter goes on to say that the wife
has followed the huslmnd to several towns.
