Jerry Howard, former state representa tive and friend of tho South Omaha laboring men regardless of party lines, has announced his candidacy for mayor against the present Incumbent, Tom Hoc tor, In case annexation does not take placo. "It's either annexation or It's me for mayor," said Howard last night. "And I'm going to win if I go into the race," paid Jerry. As a matter of fact the entrance of Jerry Howard into the race wll bo the last straw In tho present burdens of the old gang. Jerry Is the Idol of the work Ingmen In general and with the packing hoiwe men especially. His ability to win was shown a year ago when without funds or machlno backing he beat Doc Tanner for the democratic nomination for sheriff and caused the present democratic sheriff considerable worry. It was his valiant work at the last election that helped save the packing house vote to the democratic cause. Jerry supported Hoo tor for mayor a year ago and Hoctor got across the line with a narrow mar Bin. It Is therefore thought that if Howard gets into the race he will have little trouble in disposing of the gang that has enjoyed his assistance for so long when running for office. For his opponent, Hoctor will have be sides Howard .William Queenan, it is said, besides a probable republican and possibly a progressive, Glllln will run again for city treasurer, although It If conce4$o that a weak man will find lit tle difficulty In beating him for th '.or thet laa asy of hfa ' nomination. It is said that he has burod Attorney V. X, Jameson fuppofT for city attorney. John J, Ryan and Joseph rivonka are mentioned for the fire and police board, while Frank Tettva, formerly engaged in the saloon business. Is also mentioned aa a pos h1 bio candidate for the commission. The olection will not take place before May Hnd in the meantime it is possible that annexation will be effected. I, on In Dolezal III.

'Gift Sent to Girl Returns in Scorn; Can't Locate Buyer A mystery of a pink moire box is caus ing no end of speculation nt the Mantel cigar and candy shop on Famam near Eighteenth street. It is a story sweet with lomanco and It is the all absorbing topic of conver sation In the little shop. Early last week a handsome young maji. perfectly groomed and stylish, entered the store and pointed to the largest box of candy in stock. "How much Is that?" he iutkrl Man- Bger"lllgglns. "That Is a $20 box." was the reply. Twenty dollars was hovnd across the glass and the purchaser gave an' nddre's for the pretty moire box. He slipped a note beneath the cover uid saw that the silk cords were tied securely again. The tvxt scene was In ft hallway ot a fashionable West Famam street home. A messenger boy Insolently rang the door bell and throw away his cigarette tub when a "vision" appeared. The young woman examined the box closely. "Who sent this?" she Inquired. "Dere's a note Inside," the boy gasped. The girl carefully untied the package. lifted the cover of the expensive box and took one glance nt the note. Quickly she closed the box and tied It. Then tears canio Into her eyes and she cried: "Take It back and tell HIM 1 don't want his gifts." The boy found himself pushed out of doors with tho pretty pink candy box In his hands,. It was returned to Mantel's nnd Is being kept for the young man who paid f for It. Ml this happened last week. The young man ha not yet nppeared at the store to claim the box. nor has the young woniati telented. Insldo of the box tho note reposes and the clerks are afraid to open It. They have appealed to the young woman for tho young man's name, but Ih aln. Sho maintains an attitude of In difference. The cigar store folk refuse to rerveal thrf Identity of the "vision" who pnt a crimp in tho romance.
