Correspondence of The Uco.
LINCOLN , March 14. Avastfnhount
of talk has been-wasted here lately in
the discussion of , the ponsibilttyof the
governor calling the legislatnre to
gether in special session. Nobody
socnis to know definitely what , the
prospect * are. An appeal to sundry
state officials for information oa this
subject has evoked but ono general
response : "You know whntaNanco
is ; when ho gets ready to signify Inn
intentions ho will do so. ' ' ' A certain
amount of reticence in tile chief nx-
ecutivo is doubtless ijoramendabie ,
but in the present instance this re
ticence 13 carried altogether ted far.
It seems as though thoalmost ; univer
sal demand made upon the | governor
by thet state proas and the people JIG n-
erally ought to load him tq'dcclaro
his intentions. The sronerallnffjronco
drawn from his actions * ta niat he
is very reluctant , personally , to have
the legislature meet. Notwithstanding
many disclaimers which have boon is
sued from his lipi of late regarding
any further political aspirations which
ho may have , it is orotty well boltovod
hereabouts that the gpvernor has a
congressional , yearning deep down in
his anatomy , and that he , prefors..to
take his chances , for a nomination at
largo , whore ho might en mo in on his
second wind as a compromise. Tilts'
belief is natural on his part for the
reason that if the districts were to bo
formed as now Eoems probable , there
would bo very little chance for him to
secure f , nomination. The governor ,
however , does not seem to take into
consideration the fact that the anti-
monopolists might happen to control
the next republican stiito con vent idn ,
nnd in that case diminish his chances1
to zero. If political aspirations still
perplex him , ho had bettor gratify the
wishes of the people by convening
the legislature and taking his chances
on this action The movement in
favor of an extra session is
very strong in the western portion of
the state , where the people seem to
feel that they are in danger of being
loft out in the cold if candidates are
nominated at largo. Apparently the
inhabitants of the Republican Valley
sown io expect that a district contain
ing about ton counties and fifty thou
sand people is to bo carved out for
their npecial benefit. The prospects
ore that there will be a multitude of
apportionment bills introduced , if the
legislature moots. The ono meeting
most favorable here is that ono whjah
throws Douglas and Lincastor counties
together in one district. Lincoln
statesmen nrguo that by tin's shoving
Omaha off in ono corner the influence
of the metropolis will bo largely

UNDER THE CARS
A Union Paolflo Switchman Moota
With an Accident.
About 3 p. m. yesterday a scriou * '
though not fatal acoidont occurred in
the Union Pacific yard near the smelt
William Hon , a German , ia switch'
man in the lower yard , and at the
time of the accident ho was engaged
in coupling two cars together. As ho
was dropping the pin through the
link ho woa struck by thu brake rod. , ,
which knocked him down. ' He fell *
on his back and thu wheel struck'him ,
running up on the middle of the
body across the right hip , but strange
to say , not breaking any bones , but
merely causing an abrasion of
the skin. Aa he was pushed
off the track his loft foot
wai caught and the bones of the loft
ankle were crushed.
The wounded man was taken to
Dr. Murcnr's hospital , where his in
juries were attended to , and ho was
last night resting easy. Mr. Han will ,
no doubt , bo confined to his bed fo'r
some time , and as ho has a wife and
six children dependent on him for
support , it may bo inferred that it was
u misfortune iu more ways than ono.
