QUITS THE CONTEST
GOVERNOR YIELDS NOMINATION
SENDS LETTER 10 CHAIRMAN
Offers His Services to State Commit
tee in Behalf of the Whole Demo
Lincoln. Governor Shallenberger
has conceded the nomination of
James C. Dahlman for governor on
the democratic ticket, has filed his
declination of the populist nomination
and has offered his services to the
democratic state committee.
The governor came to his decision
not to go into court to contest the
nomination of Dahlman after the con
clusion of the recount in Douglas
county and after a conference with
some of his friends there. Several of
the executive's close advisers insisted
even up until Friday that he go into
court, and there is every reason to be
lieve several days ago he had about
determined to take such action.
When the official returns were re
ceived at the office of the secretary of
state they showed that Dahlman had
secured the nomination by 304 vote3.
Before the State Canvassing board
had an opportunity to meet the gover
nor asked that the votes be recounted
in fourteen counties. When he heard
of this Mayor Dahlman asked that the
vofts be recounted in forty-two coun
ties and invited the governor to join
with him in asking for a recount of
the entire state. The invitation was
The canvassing board began its
work while the Douglas county re
count was in progress, and the gover
nor, with the assistance of Attorney
General Thompson, secured several
adjournments in order to wait for the
final report of that county. Three
members of the board insisted that
county boards had no authority to re
count the ballots and signed the elec
tion tabulation, while the governor
and attorney general withheld their
names. Then came the decision of
the Douglas county district court that
the recount was legal. Since that
time the State Canvassing board has
taken no further action.
By the recount in the various
counties Governor Shallenberger
gained 107 votes.
His statement which is a letter to
Chairman J. C. Byrnes of the demo
cratic state committee, follows:
"Dear Sir Since the recount asked
for by me in certain counties has
shown that Mayor Dahlman has been
chosen as the nominee of the demo
cratic party of Nebraska for governor,
under the primary law of the state. 1
write to inform you that in conformity
with my statement made at the time
the recount was asked for. I shall
proceed no further in the matter and
am ready to do all I can for the suc
cess of the democratic ticket and the
good of the party in the future. While
a recount of the forty counties which
Mayor Dahlman ask.d for might have
given me the nomination, the time is
loo short and a longer delay can but
result in injury to our party and to
the benefit of our opponents, the re

State's Monthly Expense.
At the last meeting or the board of
public lands and buildings, as shown
by the records of l.and Commissioner
Cowles, vouchers to the amount of
$45,966.22 were allowed by the board
to cover expenses of state institu
tions for the month of August.
The total amount allowed on main
tenance funds for the eleven state in
stitutions was $24,415.90; $7,702.65
from cash funds of Institutions; $12.
061.23 for salaries and wages; $564.14
for repairs, and $1,322.30 Tor other
purposes, a total of $45,966.22. The
penitentiary and the asylums at Lin
coln and Burkett sell a good deal of
live stock and produce that brings in
a good cash fend. This fund Is de
posited with the state treasurer and
is drawn out upon orders of the board
of public lands and buildings. The
cash funds or the institutions are used
for the maintenance of the institu
tions to which the funds belong, but
by this method of handling the money
a check is kept upon the cash re
ceived and the cash expended and for
what purpose expended.
The cash fund expenditures last
month were as follows: Lincoln asy
lum. $1,571.5: Norfolk asylum.
350.62: Hastings asylum. $500: peni
'tentiary. $1,022.50: asylum at Bur

for women at Milford. $755.52.
State Fair Receipts.
The net receipts from this year's

as yet. but it is estimated that after
all expenses are met the state board
of agriculture will have left in the
neighborhood of $35,000. It started
the present year with a balance of
$19,000. The cost of preparing Tor the
fair and expenses while it was in pro
gress aggregated from $60,000 to $65.
000. The total amount taken In was
about $80,000. which added to the
previous balance, made $99,000 for the
board to go on. Deducting from thle
sum the estimated expenses, there
remains on hand something like $35.
000. This is just about the same
amount as was realized from the fair

country will attend the session, which
begins October 6 and lasts until Octo

importance of the congress it was
thought especially needful that Ne

the 600 delegates appointed it is ex
pected that a crowd of several hundred
Nebraskans will appear on the floor
of the congressional sessions.

The custom or men wearing hats
Originated In the days when they wore
;helmets. These helmets were usually
made of Iron or brass or some other
durable material and were Intended
to prevent the head of the man be
ing whacked off by some enemy.
It was a great deal like our present
day method of builuing navies. Some
,ono would invent a helmet that could
not he carved with a sword and then
.some one would invent a sword or bat
'tie ax that could send the helmet to
jthe scrap pile.
Finally the Iron hats became so
.heavy and hot that genucracn refused
to wear them, and when an enemy ap
proached they called the police.
So today we have the derby hat. the
:silk bat and the straw. Also the (fold
ling or collapsible opera bat. which was
invented for the use of vaudeville
comedians. A man in ordinary life
may snap his opera hat all he likes,
and never get a smile, but let him
