The republican primaries preceding the city convention on Saturday after-; noon, were held yesterday. The polls were opened at the various voting places at noon and were closed at 7 o'clock. In the First, Second, Third and Fourth wards the voting was very quiet, no con tests of any importance being made. . In the Fifth and Sixth a different state of affairs existed. There waa lively firfit- iner in both these wards. In the Fifth the result, as will be seen later, it still verv much in doubt. In the Sixth (Jol. . Pace was victorious by a majority of lorty-tnree. THE FIEST WARD. The first ward is the home of Elmer Stephenson, the livliest candidate for the treasurership. That gentleman had a ticket in the held and his forces were so well organized that it was a foregone conclusion that he would be successful in securing; a strong and united delega tion. During the afternoon -two other tickets were sprung, but they received tfcut -little attention from the voters.' One was headed, "For May-'or, K. B. Graham." It was supposed to Vbe in the interests of W. C. Lane for , treasurer. The other was said to be prepared for Sir. Jones, the present treasurer. The excitement around the polling place was of the mildest kind, and yet w50 votes were cast. Of these 264 were f for the Stephenson ticket, 34 were for the alleged Lane delegation and 62 for the "Unknown. Ihe successtul dele- vgation is said to be pledged for no one but Mr. Stephenson. - it is a trading del egation and everything possible will be done to secure the success of the first ward candidate for treasurer. It is an .open secret, also, that the delegation is favorable to Mr. Urahani for mayor. Here is a list of the successful dele gates: ; A. Halter, Thomas Lancaster, C. E. Waite, E. J. Flaharty, H. De Vere Simmons, W. S. Crick, Oliver Maggard, .rrank Austin, William Smith, J. ti. "White, W. B. Bennett, Mat Oleson, C. Champion, Robert Nixon, Nils Johnson, A. J. (Jornish, Uhaa. Coyne, Kobert (J, Bertram, H. T. Dobbins, John Eller, David Nefskey. SECOND WARD. No incidents of any kind occurred to break the peaceful monotony around this ward during the voting hours. The number of votes cast was eighty-nine. The delegation is for Doty for council and v an iJuyn tor city clerk. It is com posed of the following gentlemen 4 L. V Billinralev. A. O. Hastine-a. S. M. Melick, D. eil Johnson, Henry veith, John A. Ames, A. W. Scott, J. R. Bing, W. H. Woodward, John Fraas, Win. Rhode, H. P. .Lau, 0, M. Druse, W. P. Johnson, H. W. Sheridan, Chas. Betz. THIRD WARD. The peace which characterized opera tions in tne inira warn was strongly suggestive of a Sunday afternoon in August. But one ticket was in the field. It was headed for J. D. MacFarland for mayor, but the preferences of the delegates for the other offices are not known. The number of votes cast was 122. The delegation is as follows: H. H. JShaberg, G. M. Lambertson, Chas. O. Whedon, H. H. Dean, Jos. Burns, R. S. Young, W. G. Powell, H. : Waltemade, L M. Raymond, Henry Logan, Joseph Teeters, R. E. Moore, Sain Westerfield, H. H. Wilson, Joseph Gould, Will Green, J. C. McBride, W, J. Marshall. B. T. Johnson. J. H. Fawell, Fred Reiners, L. J. Byera, J. D. MacFarland, J. R. Richards. FOURTH WARD. The judges and clerks in the Fourth ward amused themselves by spreading the report that two tickets were in , the field. There were two tickets, but as they bore the names of the same men it was impossible to stir up much of an interest in the balloting. Just 128 men dropped around during the afternoon to chat with the judges and drop in votes for the following delegates: J. H. McMurtrv, C. T. Boggs, R. H. Oakley, C. M. Parker, T. F. Lasch, Phelps Paine, R. H. Townley, C. W. Lyman, E. E Brown, C. E. Montgomery, W. E. Kirker, Thos. Sewell, J. O. Carter, William Gillespie, Henry Mohr, A. R. Talbot, C. W. Mosher, Fred Beckman, J. . B. Archibald, J. B. Wright, D. B. Howard, F. A. Bohemer, Norris Humphrey, , A. H. Harrington, W. C. Griffiths, A. E. Kennard, J. J. Davis. THE BLOODY FIFTH. The rounders who went from polling place to polling place in search of amusement, found plenty of it in the fifth ward. There was a war on hand there, and it took the attention of a large part of the population of the ward alT of the afternoon and a good portion of the evening. There were no people killed or wounded; even wordy encounters were few, but a casual glance would show that the workers were deeply in earnest. Every device that could be thought of was employed to bring republicans to the primaries, and a good sized vote was polled. It was a three cornered fight. Bush-nell, Ensign and Klock were in the field. A great complication was made by the fact that eight of the men on the Bush-nell ticket had been considered good enough Ensign men to be placed on his ticket. Six of the Klock men were likewise adopted by Mr. Ensign. When the vote was counted it was found that followers of all three candidates had been elected. Nineteen of the men on Mr. Bushnell's ticket were elected, fourteen of Mr. Ensign's, and six who were on the Klock defecation. This leaves matters in a decidedly mixed condition. It is simply a question of votes on the delegation as it is elected. The candidate who receives a majority of the votes of the twenty-five men will be the regular nominee. Mr. Bushnell claims that his nomination is assured. Others insist that the matter is still very much in doubt. The total number of votes cast was 584. ' There were 261 straight votes for BushneU, 112 straight for Ensign, and 175 for for Klock. There were in addition 21 scratched Bushnell votes, 11 scratched Klock votes and 2 scratched Ensign votes. The following gentlemen were elected: . i W. G. Houtz. iC. J. Ernst, W. II. Clark, Chas. Magoon, John Geisler, S. J. Alexander, S. 7H. Burnham. R. D. fctearns, C. M. Carter, O. C Bell W. H. Dobson, L. Heiskell. W. J. Percival, Wash Johnson, L. Otto, Kit Wilson, M. B. Cheney, Thos. Ryan, D. A. Robinson, v. W. Hoxie, James Aitken. J. Frank Barr, S. T. Cochran, Jan. McGraw.W. H. Snellinc: The Bushnell - men who were defeated were Jos. Boehmer. John Lavne. C. B. Beach, John J. Gillilan, Jerome Schamp and M. M. De Levis. It is not probable that anything will be definitely known until a meeting of the delegation is held. THE GOKY SIXTH. The hottest fight of the day occurred in the Sixth ward. It was a straight contest between r . C smith and L. J. Pace, the former a "straight republican' candidate and the latter simply a "republican" candidate. The origin of the struggle was back in the past, whenTMr. Pace belonged to every party under the sun. O f late he has been led to see the error of his ways, and within the last year has declared himself a hrm believer in the doctrines of the republican party. It was proposed by many republicans of tne Sixth ward to take mm back into tne fold, and a mass meeting was called for the purpose of giving him formal bap tism. This meetmg was neid with con siderable promptness, so much so, in fact, that a large number of men were too late to take part in the services. They were considerably offended, and as they did not consider Mr. Pace a good republi can anyway, proceeded to put Mr. Smith in the field, This waa about the only issue between tne two candidates, isoth were conceded to be good men. There was enough in terest taken in the management of the politics of the ward, however, to make it an exceedingly hot tight. The trouble began in organizing for the work of the day. Both parties were on hand in force and engaged in a lively scramble for control of the board. Then they settled down to a long and strong pull for supremacy. A big crowd of men worked m the wind and dust until the polls closed, and although it seemed that Uol, Pace had the advantage, it was not a sure thing by any means. The count showed that 419 votes had been cast. Mr. Pace received 231 and Mr. Smith 188. The majority for Mr. Pace was therefore 43. The following gentlemen will represent Col. Pace in the convention: H. M. Rice, I. L. Lyman, V. H. Dyer, C. A. Wickers ham, E. Hunger, E. A. Stephens, James M. (Jamp, jr., 1. E. Johnson, C T. Brown, W. W, Carder, W. C. F. Harding.

For once in their lives the people of Lincoln have an opportunity to attend a strictly first class minstrel show. To night, at the Funke opera house, the Elks will appear in a performance that will put to shame three-fourths of the travelling companies. The best male singers m the city have been en gaged, and leading members of the lodge will appear in black face on the stage. There will be fine music, wonderful jokes, taking specialties and a screaming after piece. The young men engaged in this enterprise have been at woik under competent direction for weeks, and will give value received for every cent in vested in tickets of admission. It is certain that nothing will be mediocre. Every act will either be very good or very bad. Anything in an amateur performance that is very bad is highly en-, tertaining to the audience, even if it is a little mortifying for the actors. Among the specialties ought to be mentioned an act by the Wertz brothers. professional tumblers, and an act or two by Mr. Goodall of Omaha and his daugh ter, Miss Eva. A list of the specialties by the mem bers of the club would be too long for nublication. The specialties will be there and the people who fail to see the entertainment will regret it for years. A minstrel show will not be a success without a parade. The Elks and military band will appear on the streets at noon, moving west on P street to Ninth, thence south on Ninth to O, thence east on O to Eleventh, thence south on Eleventh to N, thence east on N to Thirteenth, thence north on Thirteenth to O, west on O to Eleventh, thence to Elks' halL MORE THAN THET COULD STAND. The newsboys and bootblacks were in dulging in a free fight in a back alley. The air was thick with flying snowballs, brickbats and bad language. "Boys." said a policeman, approachinsr them, "this will have to be stopped. It looks like a meeting of the Indiana legislature." With a yell of mingled shame and indignation the boys turned on that policeman and chased him half a mile. Chicago Tribune.

The attendance at the Eden Musee per formances every afternoon and evening is large and increasing. The musee seems to be just about the sort of a thing that the people like. People who fail to see the minstrel show at the opera house this evening will regret it as long as they live, ane show will be the greatest event in the history of Nebraska.

Two fire alarms were sent in from North Lincoln within an hour yesterday afternoon. The first came from Z street between Eighth and Ninth, where a hay stack against a barn was burning. The department arrived on the scene in time to save the barn. This fire was caused by children and matches. The second alarm came from Twenty-first and W, where a barn was burning. In this case the nearest hydrant was on Twenty-seventh street, and the department could render no assistance. The barn was consumed, together with a valuable horse. Members of the A. O. TJ.

Three or four private rooms in this building will be for the use of customers, and women of a proper character will not be ex cluded.

On his last birthday a month or two ago a youngster in knickerbockers who lives in East end received from his father a watch, the price of which, it is safe to say, did not exceed $15. It will not surprise you to hear that the boy took the watch to pieces after it had burned in his pocket but three days. When every wheel lay in his hand the boy naturally feel to thinking how he might put it in runnine order again. He must be some thing of a mechanical genius, for he succeeded in getting the dismembered works inside the case in some sort of shape. It is hardly a reflection on the boy's skill. either, that after the mechanism was put together it railed to respond to the winding stem. But the boy persevered. He detected the root of the trouble in the balance wheeL He tinkered, until to his unfeigned astonishment, after he had jacked up the wheel with a bandage of cotton thread, toe watcn oeean to tick.

DNAGEROUS USE OF STRONG PCRSITIYES Most pills. Dunratives and Bitter Waters. which act quickly upon the bowels, irritate and often destroy the mucous coats of the stomach and bowels. Indeed their cathartic action is directly caused by the irritation of tbe bowels, which they produce. Their action should be soothing and stimulating instead of irritating. A continued use of such remedies produces chronic inflammation of the stomach and bowels. Tbia often ends in dangerous disease. The use of the genuine imported Carlsbad Sprodel Salt is highly recommended as an aperient, laxative and diuretic, because its action is due solely to its solvent and stimulatina; propertiea. It soothes and allays inflammation, and is therefore much preferable to all strong purgatives and Bitter Waters. Beware of Imitations.
