SAY CONTEST WAS CORRUPT Charges and Counter Charges From Pottawattamie County. Sear and Cummins Men are After Each Other, Alleged That Vatas Ware Bought and Ballot Boxes Stuffed. Des Moines, Sept. political pilgrims who went out to Pottawatta- mie county to assist 'the good people ol that community in CQnd.uctlnsr their primaries last Friday and Saturday evenings, haVe drifted back to town, and they tell some hair raising stories about the contest in which Gear car- ried the county. The Cunimlns lead- ers, while they do not admit that the county was of such vital importance to their cause as outsiders considered, yet admit that they wanted it very much and made by far the hardest flght they have conducted in any single county thus far. The altruistic advocate of high toned political methods would find .a. good deal In the general conduct of the fight calculated to grate on his tender sensibilities. But the effort of either side to cast aspersions on the other because of methods employed would be a modern instance of the old debate between the pot and the kettle. If the stories that are brought back have any truth in them, neither side can lay claim to a large measure of political virtue in connection with the matter. The Gear people have insisted for some time that Pottawattamie was not a pivotal They declared they had the contest won, even they should lose that county. The energy with which they devoted themselves to the fight, however, does not indicate so great confidence as would' be pre- sumed- from their statements. If the whole question of electing'a senator had been referred to Pottawattamie the fight could hardly have been waged with more desperation. But with this; county won, and with their triumph In the "Big Five" district, the Gear men are now claiming that the fight is all political mathemati- cians'-gives out the statement that Gear now has.58 votes in sight in the joint caucus, on the basis of nominations already made. In making this esti- mate he leaves ,out _the count of a few- nominees in close or democratic dis- tricts, where the chances are against the republicans electing, and xipplies his best judgment and information to determine how the others stand as be- tween Gear and Cummins. He then calculates that 115 is the outside limit of the number who will be entitled to seats in the joint caucus. He considers 107 or 108 the more probable number Placing it at 115. his estimate gives Gear a majority of one. But about the Pottawattamie flght- The Gear people who were" on the ground say that the Kock Island roact sent all its gravel trains In the vicinity of Council Bluffs into the town on Fri- day afternoon, with instructions that the men were to vote for Cummins The Burlington, however, was not to be outdone in any such style. It had a few gravel gangs of, its own, less the management of the road "has been libelled, it sent them from all over southwestern Iowa into the town ana voted them. But this all wasn't a patching-. Wagons and carry-alls came over from- Omaha with patriots who were willing to vote in Iowa at a fixed amount per. And they voted, too, by hundreds.One precinct which cast less than 400 votes for McKinley in 1896, ana has never cast so many for a republi- can candidate since, turned out over 520 votes in the caucus.No attempt was made, practically, to assure honesty in the primary. Nobody's qualifica- tions were especially investigated. Men filed into the primary rooms, deposited their ballots with the judges and filed out, to receive the ?2, which was ac- cepted" as the standard price. The Gear people, from all accounts had the longer purse. They were able to keep at it longer. Both sides had managers on hand from general head- quarters, looking after organization and the process of handling the money and it was a red-hot time. The half has not been told about it; probably never will be written. But in the end the Gear people won out. The Cum- mins people insist that an honest prim- ary would have shown a different re- sult, but Pottawattamie has never been very strong on morality in politics, and the resupt will have to be accepted philosophically by anybody who doesn't like it. ago, in., sept.

In Hebrew Chronology it Begins the Year 5660, Is Traditional Festival of the He- brew Faith. In common with congregations all over the world the Jewish cltlcns ot Waterloo are, celebrating the Hebrew New Year of. Feast of. Rash Ha.siian.ttU, The observance the day began at C o'clock hist night and will conclude at 6 o'c'rock tonight. In Hebrew chronology this begins tho year 6680. In the tabernacles, ortho- dox "and liberal, there will be obser- vance of the holiday, alike In Intent, but differing vastly In manner and form. The liberal congregations in the Uni- ted States.whose membership embraces all the Jewish population ex- .cept the Russian and Polish Immi- grants of the last ten years, have discarded, the solemn ceremonies ami antiquated forms that orthodoxy still reveres. This observance of New Year's, like their customary Sabbath services, arc characterized by a sim- plicity as severe as the least ritualistic Christian meetings. By them the New Year's festival Is observed through re- spect for old traditions and because ot its "relations to the phollsopby of the Jewish religion. In the various synagogues there will be .devotional assemblages this even- ing to signalize the advent of the year The services will consist in the liberal churches simply of Biblical readings prayer with responses by the choir' hymns and a sermon. The folio wing morning a somewhat similar ceremon- ial will take place. At the latter meet- ing the'prayer .of Hannah from the book of Samuel Is to be read in all the synagogues. The only other ceremony strictly char- acteristic of the day is the "blowing of the trom'which phrase the festival derived Its original name of Yom Therau, Even in this the Amer- ican congregations have departed some- what from the. old forms and Instead sofa blare of horns an organ, accom- paniment having somewhat the sem- blance of trumpet tones heralds the advent of the new year.'. New Year's day, oivftosh Hashanan is but the first day of a season of pe- culiar; significance that ends on the tenth day ..thereafter .with'the solemn "Yom or .Bay of Atonement, -the intervening days are called days of repentance and are observed by prayer and fasting. There is much misunderstanding as to Jewish customs and beliefs founded largely on that profess to elucidate theni. It should be understood that we observe the Julian or Gregorian in all respects as fully as do all other modern people It would cause a queer state of confu- sion were.we to do otherwise. Our ob- servance of the New Year, as such, is merely in deference to traditions as as any In the world has. But there Is also a philosophy governing this holi- day institution that may bear explana- tion. The New Year festival is, of course one of joy. It signalizes the reawaken- ing of all life for another year. The tradition has it that for eight days fol- lowing the Lord keeps open the books of life and of death, and in one or other the name of every mortal is written. It 1s natural that in this period of uncertainty there should be a spirit of repentance and mortification exer- cised. On the tenth day the books are closed and all make atonement, to ex- press their submission to the Divine will. So it will be seen there is a religious significance to" these holidays, but It is a mistake to suppose that in a calendarial sense they possess any importance. By the orthodox Jews the approach- ing season is invested with a much more exalted meaning and the most solemn ceremonies are employed. The observances begin some days before Rosh Hashanah. The ceremonies are visited and rites performed at the graves of the dead believers in the an- cient faith and in the synagogues the scroll of the decalogue Is publicly read three times dally. The Jewish calendar year is a lunar one. The first day of its every month is so calculated as to be identical with or but one day after the appearance of the new moon. To keep this relation the months consist of twenty-nine or thirty days, But. a twelve-month year would fall far short, in this arrange- ment, of the solar year and would displace the calendar in relation to the seasons. To adjust this it was ar- ranged centuries ago that an extra month of twenty-nine days be inserted seven times in nineteen years. And so this survival of the world's oldest civi- lization is today as accurate and re- markable a piece of astronomical cal- culation as the Gregorian calendar. W. A.

The subscription plan adopted by Manager Brown for this engagement Is necessary on account of the guarantee required by this com- pany, and Manager Browns efforts to secure for the music lovers an attrac- tion of- this character should be met with a hearty response. The company met with an cxtliusias- tlc reception here last spring, the una. nlmous verdict being that'll was tho best musical attraction of years and it Is safe to. say that the guarantee can easily be obtained. The cast of principals of the Andrews company for the coming season la again headed my Miss Myrta French whose :beauUful voice and splendid" acting won for her the plaudits of Wa- terloos music lovers last season. Mr. F. ,W.'Walter's marvelously fine tenor voice which will long be remem- bered here, will again enact the princi- tenor role. Messrs, Geo. anU Ed. Andrews who were, on account of.
