Omaha Ashton C. Shallenberger is
slowly creeping ahead of Mayor Dahl
man in the face for the democratic
nomination for governor. The work
of canvassing boards as made known
Friday reveals in nearly every in
stance a slight gain for the Alma
man, which, if maintained, is certain
to land him in the leading position
on the ticket.
Returns from the various county,
boards specify whether democratic or'
populist, and it appears there is only
the remotest ground for contest m

and democratic votes are being added

Corn is King.
"Republican and democratic speak
ers, orators and nation- savers all
agree, says Labor Commissioner Ry
der, that they never saw so little pub
lic interest in politics or candidates
The contract price of corn or the aver,
age date of early frost in Nebraska
are the engrossing subjects.
"Talking of prices, I was told by an
Aurora man who has several farms
that he has been offered 60 cents for
all the corn he will deliver. He re
fused the oifer. And let me say the
government estimate of our corn crop
is too high, while some of the railroad
estimates are away off, in my judg
ment. We have several hundred re
ports here In the office now, that bear
out this statement and I have been In
a large number of. fields on foot. A
great deal of corn is thin and uneven,
and fully 10 per cent of the total acre
age planted has been lost. Nebraska
will have probably 70 per cent of a
full normal crop, not more.
"This must be said, however. Where
we have good corn this year we have
as fine a crop as heart could wish. A
yield of 60 bushels to the acre can
be looked for in some fields, barring
a hard frost within two or three
weeks. Forty bushels will be the tally
in a great many Instances, and 20 to
30 bushels will be realized in many
more fields. But the big expectations
of some folks on aggregate yield are
due for a hard tumble.

cent horticultural exhibit. In fact, in

of Omaha was in charge, he being the
president of the society. It was a
