" The principal question now con- and getting ready for summer.
An effort had been made by the
various candidates to reach an agree
ment as to the withdrawal of all but
one of the men who are opposing the
governor for re-nomination, but the
greater part of the candidates re
fused to accept the various compro- I
mise measures. The changes in the
situation, if any occur, must be by
the voluntary withdrawal of some of
the candidates.
Mr. Pollard taxes the position that
he is in no way responsible forN the
tangle- and confusion that exists
among the numerous candidates. He
declined for weeks to get into the
contest for the governorship and
yielded only when a showing of a
general sentiment for his entering
the race was made by the republicans
of the state. At the time the peti
tions for his nominations were filed
only the name of Adam McMullen of
Beatrice was in the field. Since the
filing of the name of Mr. Pollard,
Hall, McLaughlin, Bachelor and
Mathewson have- filed. The state
ment of Mr. Pollard given out is as
"Soon after I came to Lincoln as a
member of the constitutional con
vention, republicans from over the
state as they came to the
city began to urge me to file as
a candidate, for governor. I always
replied that I was not a candidate
and did not care to be considered at
all in connection with any office. I
maintained this postion for over two
months. Finally I said that before
I would give the matter considera
tion, I must be convinced that there
was a general demand for me from
republicans all over the state.
"Against my advice, petitions were
circulated in a number of counties,
come of which were filed with the
secretary of state, presenting my
name as a candidate for governor.
The plea was made to me that in
view of my having represented Cass
county In the legislature two terms
and the first .congressional district
in the United States congress two
terms, and being a member of the
constitutional convention, that my
qualifications and public record were
such as to make me the most avail
able man to make the race.
"I was told that I have been hon
ored by the party in days gone by,
that I was indebted to the republican
party for any political successes I
had enjoyed, and that now it was my
duty as a republican to come to the
rescue of the party in its hour of
"Four years ago I withdrew my
name as candidate for governor in
order to insure the election of a dry
candidate to lead the party in the
prohibition fight which was the do
minant issue at that time. -I with
drew then because I felt that the
interests of the republican party aid
the temperance cause were para
mount to my personal ambition.
"At the time my petitions were
filed with the secretary of state, one
filing only had been made, other than
the present incumbent. All the fil
ings except this one, were made sub
sequent to mine. Consequently I am
not responsible for the present con
fused situation.
"I was drawn Into, the contest
against my wishes as the result of a
general demand on the part of re
publicans over the state. It is im
possible now for me to communicate
with them In regard to the situation
confronting the party at this time.
However,. I have talked with as many
of my personal friends as I have been
able to reach. Without a single ex
ception they tell me that the same
situation that confronted the party
at the time my name was filed still
obtains, and that my duty, now, is
to remain in the field. I have given
this matter careful Consideration and
I have finally concluded that under
no clrcumstant-es will I withdraw. I
none, that republicans all over the
state will stand by me now in this
campaign as I stood by them when I
withdrew four years ago.
