July 15 — (Re printed Prom The Lincoln Star)— William Wood, veteran colored care taker at the state executive mansion, who has served continuously in that capacity under all governors sines 1907, is tho latest victim of the per sonal feud between Governor Bryan and Land Commissioner Conklin, growing out of the recent unsuccess ful prosecution and ouster suit brought against the latter. Wood’s name was taken off the regular janitor payroll for the capi tol. by action of B. M. Johnson, assistant custodian under Conklin, and will no longer be paid $40 a month salary in that capacity. This leaves him still drawing $50 a month out of the executive mansion main tenance fund, which is under the governor’s control. If he is to receive the same pay as heretofore, Pryan will have to make up the difference. During Conklin’s recent trial, he testified that Governor Bryan told him Wood was a “pensioner” who had become a fixture at the executive mansion through many years of ser vice, and it was that understanding that Conklin continued to carry him on the capitol payroll, although he was not regularly employed there. Wood was not called as a witness in the Conklin case.
