SCHOOL BOYS TO BE TAUGHT SWIMMING Boys in the city schools- of 12 years of age and upward who cannot swim will be given three lessons each of half an iliour's duration in the Young Men's Christian association swimming pool. This action was taken by the Hoard of Education upon the advice of Superin tendent K. U. Uraff, who believes It will be a "very practical course." There aro now 1,600 boys who will need the instruc tion. These wUl be taken In relays of twenty-five from tho schools to the Young Men's Christian association, M. H. Cbrsan, an expert teacher and son of an expert swimmer and teacher of swimming employed by the Canadian government and stationed at Toronto, will give them instructions. The swimming- tank will be refilled and heated each day during the two weeks in which swimming lessons will be given. Boys who desire to enter the swimming class IU send a card to the Young Men's Christian association from a reputable physician stating that no danger will at tend the lessons because of physical cou COUNTY MUST PROVIDE FOR INSANE PATIENTS While the state Is supposed to provide clothing for Insane patients in the state Institutions, the county must do so at this time, according to an opinion of Deputy County Attorney George A. Mag. hey. Just filed In the county clerk's of fice. The opinion Is a reply to an inquiry by County Commlxsloiier Peter K. El taaaer, who objected to paying for cloth ing for Insane patients sent from Douglas county. Mr. Magnwy says the state's ap propriation for clothing for Insane la ex hausted. Conunliinloner Eltasser Is not In Omaha. When be returns be may tuke the poslUun that it Is for the state to fiod rauua way tw rspUniah Ui tutu PREPARE TO BEAT RING RULE Sitizcnt' Union Issues en Address to Voters orXhnaha. A CLEAN SLATE IS DESIRED In lna M ill l K adorer Any Candi date for lammlaalonrr Who Will ot llmpert HUM of the Wage Karnrrs. The Cltliens' union has made another appeal for membership. The following resolution ha been adopted by the ex ecutive committee and turned over to the publicity mHnagers, with Ralph Sunder .and's O. K.: Oirtiha Is the home of neatly l.VO.floO people. A large ratine of Interests and a great variety of opinions are represented o.v the Ifo.uuo voters of this city. Any pian of government which does not recognise this tact will full short of Its Miriest usefulness. The Cltlsens' union Is prepared and willing to act as the servant of hII voters who want Omaha to be the best gov ern"..! city In the United States. There am In this city tour classes of citizens, via.: Firet Those who earnestly desire good city government. Second Those who take no personal In terest or responsibility in tne matter. I hey don't care. Third Those who would take an in terest, but believe It Is impossible to de teat the gang. Fourth Those who do not want good government and will do their utmost to defeat it. In our Judgment class No. Vat this time outnumbers class No. 4 probably four to one. In our Judgment claws No. i mav be aroused to their duty and be added to class No. 1. In our judgment class No. 3 is much less numerous at this time than ever before, for there have been recent evidences that the gang cannot win against an awakened public. As for cIhm No. 4, they vote solidly together like clock work and they win whenever they can scatter tho Interest and the vote of classes Noa. 1, I! and 3. among a large number of candidates. "Anything to win" Is their slogan and they have won often by using classes Nos. If 2 and 3 as their Innocent helpers. Next spring there will be elected seven commissioners to manage the business of the city for three years. The 115,000 voters are entitled to representation, not mis representation. Sterling; Character Kaaratla.1. At the head of each department there should bo a man of sterling character, a man of unusual ability and a man who will recognise the rights and the interests of all of the people. The wage earners of Omaha, the for eign population, the colored people, the business men and every division of the voting population all of the voters mimt bo faithfully and honestly served by the commissioners. Our opponents at the outset announced that the Citizens' union wart an offshoot of the Business Men's association. Noth ing more untrue was ever stated. The purpose wus. of course, to prejudice wajje earners against this organization, it was unfair to the voters and unfair to the Citizens' union to create this laUe Im pression. Tlie fuct as that two prominent mem bers of organized labor are now acting as members of the executive committee, a tact which must convince the most skeptical that the Citizens' union is not in any sense opposed to the wage earn ers. This organization can be of no greater service to any citizen than to the wage earners. The wage earner Is the best friend of good government and good government is tbe wage earner's best friend. The Citizens' union Is just what the name implies a union of the citizens of Omaha, Its sole purpose being good gov ernment for Omalia. Men of all positions and activities In life can well atrord to Join flands on this proposition. All men have a common in terest In good government. All men have eqvjal power to help secure It. And light here It may be stated that the Citizens' union will not endorse nor recommend any candidates for commis sioner who will not recognise and respect the rights and privileges of the wage earners as citizens of Omaha. No ticket of seven candidates will be satisfactory to the Citizens' union utile It Is distinctly representative of the en tire population. First of all. the candidates must have good character and ability to conduct the business of the city successfully. Tlio candidates must be free from entangle ments with the gang which the Citizens' union Is determined- to defeat. The Issue next spring will be clear cut as between government in the Interest of the whole city and government in the Interest of the corrupt machine gang. Of necessity the voters who favor good government will find it necessary to unite upon seven men who deserve public con fidence and support. Any other plan will spell defeat. Every citizen is invited to Join the Cltl sens' union. All members 'will receive each week the union paper with informa tion as to what Is being done. THE CITIZENS' UNION. Bv Its Executive Committee.

Smith Premier Typewriter which saves time is the variable and universal line placer. This deviee brings the writiug point just whre you want it in order to insert a letter or word in any given line of typewriting, and also permits of writing on the lino of ruled paper even thbugh the distance between lines'varies. At the right hand end of the platen you will find a small knob. Press this knob and you can bring theaper exactly to the line required. The perfect alignment of the Smith Premier type writer need never be marred in making correc tions, once the operator loams to use the variablo and universal line spacer. Also writing on the line on ruled paper is as simple as writing en unruled paper because of this device. Ajid yet it is but one of the 28 Smith Premier ad vantages. The business men of Omaha are generally acquainted now, with the fact that this is the tyxewriter office that doesn't "pester" a man tabuj They ask for a dcraonstra- tor with full knowledge that "all" their time, from then , on, will not be taken listening to typewriter salesmen. They feel safe that's why they call. The Smith Premier Typewriter Co. 19th and Douglas Sts. OMAHA, NEB.
