MAKE IT A TEST Nebraska TEST SOON ON CONTROL BOARD Senate Today Will Take Action on Governor's Choice. TWO APPOINTEES ARE ANXIOUS ;rnff nml Grrnte Are Not Ccrtnln Whnt Thrlr Knte Will He, While Gerilcn In Not Worrrlnsv. (From a Staff Correspon-lent.l LINCOLN, Neb., March 10. (Special.) "To be or 'not to be In the question. Whether to May In this fiRht and suffer the pangs of possible defeat or steal si lently away and wrap the mantle of my couch about me and lie down to un pleasant dreams" Is an all-Important question which Is agitating the minds of two of the members of the Board of Control selected by Governor Morehead and who will run the gauntlet of the sen ate 'Inquisition Tuesday. That these two members fully appreci ate the danger their confirmation Is In Is evidenced by the fact that they have been haunting the lobby almost con- stantly during the last wck and this morning Mr. Graff was busily Inter viewing the members and seeking to dis cover what the fates had In store for him In fact, the senate chamber was a very busy place at one time, from the stand point of the lobbyist. Only a few sun ators were on deck, as the senate had adjourned until 2 o'clock, but thoso fo v had plenty of time to devote to the gen tic lobbyist and over In one corner Mr. Graff was Impressing upon the minds of n group of statesmen the Importance of his case, when over In the other corner It. B. Howell had another Fenator cor ncrcd up, presumably lrapreMlng hlin with the Importance of the Omahu Water board bill being carried In order to save the country. While the fire of the "fornlnsters" has been turned on Mr. Graff and Mr. GrcgK, more recently there has developed some opposition to Mr. Gerdes from members of his own party. This, however, may inot materialize Into anything Berlous, bt it is among the possibilities that the Knvcrnor mav have to try the luck of some other letter of the alphabet than tho letter "G" In the selection of names to go before the senate for confirmation Union Pacific Sued for Forty Thousand KBAR.NBY. Neb., March 10. (Special.) John W. Patterson, administrator in the estate of Orel A. Bleau, hes filed suit In the state court at Lexington In behalf of the widow of Bleau, seeking 140,000 damages for tho death of her huB band. The defendant In the caso Is the Union Pacific company, who It Is alleged are at fault for the death of Bleau through negligence on the part of their company. Bleau, In company with Herman Flnke a chauffeur, was killed June, 1812, while crossing the Union Pacific tracks on the main highway east of Lexington. The petition filed In the case alleges that the necessary precautions were not taken by the engineer driving the train at the time and that no whistle was sounded for the crossing. For the charter convention election tomorrow the Water board has filed the name of P. C. Heafcy, one of its own members, as its par ticular and special representative, The Water board is just now asking the legislature at Lincoln to enlarge its powers and perpetuate its high-salaried political en gineer in life tenure control. The candidacy of Mr. Heafcy as the Water board race horse is, therefore, in the nature of an appeal to the public for a vote of confidence. LET US, THEN, MAKE IT A TEST. If Mr. Heafcy Wins out it will mean that the people of Omaha en dorse and support the demand the Water board is making at Lin coln and its bill should be passed. If Mr. Heafey loses out it will mean that the people of Omaha op pose the Water board demands and its bill should be killed. TF YOU ARE FOR THE WATER ROARb BILL, VOTE FOR HEAFEY. IF YOU ARE AGAINST THE WATER BOARD BILL, VOTE AGAINST HEAFEY. ASSESSORS HAYE NEW JOB County Officers Must Petition Sepa rate Lutings Hereafter.

Wales, who died suddenly at his home In this city Saturday, having suffered a stroke of apoplexy, was held this afternoon. The deceased was one of the best known con tractors In this part of the state and quite wealthy. He was born In Broad- stairs, Kent, England, March 14, 1844, and f come to this country In 1870 and reached Nebraska City In 1872 and has since mado it his home.

Enyart, a share In his large estate and named him as executor over all of the property named by him In the will. He qualified as executor of the estate, In which he was Interested, and then resigned and asked the court to appoint his son, Frank B. Enyart, In his stead.

THREATENSUTf TO HOLD UP SALARY OF MAYOR ukuken BOW, Neb.. March 10.- (Speclal.)-Thls city will probably have another law suit on Its hands by a re cent action taken by Councilman John G.

The council will bo given an opportunity at Its next regular session to cancel the warrant If It sees fit. KING ALFALFA MILLS . WILL WIND UP AFFAIRS NEBRASKA CITY, Neb.. March 10.- (Spcclal.)
