LINCOLN , Juno 22. f
Although early In the season , there Is
more or loss "fixing of the political slate"
for 1890 among the politicians. As they
gather together , from time to time , in the
corridors of the hotels , from different parts
of the state , the bout of their minds seems
to turn upon the probable candidates for the
various state ofllces and the relative chances
of each in the convention lottery. The corridors
riders of the Capitol hotel were the seono of
an animated discussion a few nights ago.
Among the prominent Nobrusknns who
were considering the plums and plum seek
ers , Tin : BUB representative noticed Ropre-
BOntatlves Christlo and Smith , Culdwcll , of
Clay ; Senator Linn , of Richardson ; E. P.

ivay. Though a guessing party , some of
tholr guesses are of gonoial interest to the
"Candidates for the governorship are as
thick as blackberries In Juno , " quietly re
marked ono of the party. Let's seo. There's
DcmiHtor , Dlnsmoro , Majors , Richards ,
Moiklojohn , Raymond , Dorsey , Holmes.
Laws nnd Humphrey. A pretty respectful
list of candidates , Is it not ) "
"With two or throe exceptions , yes. " cnmo
an answer , somewhat brusquely. "But there
are only three of the candidates you have
named that have a ghost of u show. "
"Wno are thoyl"
"Secretary Laws , Chairman Richards and
Lloutcnant-Governor Moiklojohn ; but Laws
and Richards have the best chance. Molklo-
is too young to cut a grout figure , still
ightning might strike him. "
"I'll ' bet you 850 , " said another , "or any
other member of the party , that Melklejohu
will down any man that has beennauioi ) , and
that's not saying that ho'll got there , either.
I'm thinking there's a dark horse in the
back-ground who will lick 'em all. If not ,
Wind me , Mciklojohn will uo the man. "
"Who will win the lieutenant-governor-
ship , then t"
"Don't know , but I hear Frank Ransom
prominently suggested us the most available
man , " chimed in ono of the party who bad
kept eilcul up to this time. "I have also hoard
Jim Culdwoll and C. C. MoNlsn suggested
AS probable candidates. "
"But who will succeed Laws , Loose , Hill ,
Honton , Steen and Lane I"
"Hard to toll. It is my opinion , though , "
aid still another of the gang , "that Bon
Cowdry , the secretary's deputy , will come
mighty near knocking the secretary

quiet , but bis friends are grooming hltfl tor
the fray , and if be makes the ruco ho will be
mighty upt to pluy the winning liana. Locso
will have served the dear people three terms
as attorney-general , and It is generally auroud
that he would get there for the fourtli if ho
BO desired , Hut I understand he declines
further honor in bis present position. Some
of bis friends are talking him strong for gov
ernor. Nobody can bout Hill. Henton will
have opposition for u second term , I bear the
Lancaster boys liavo It in for him , and they
rimy do him up in the county convention ,
bteen will probably live to see another term ,
U'hls depends , however , upon his good bo-

The councllmanlo investigating committee
took up the sewerage question again to-day.
Indeed , the committee took tbo sensible way
and went out to make a personal Inspection
of the man-holes Harvey told about yester
day. It is presumable that a formal report
will bo made as to what the committee dis
covers. The Investigation Is fast becoming
chostnutty. While in some respects it has
done some good , In others it has been a sig
nal failure. Dean , it is generally admitted ,
is in tbo soup. Cooper , if not in , hangs on
the cdgo , while the bond deal seems very
questionable. Other than this , if the opinion
of the public Is worth a cent , the so-called in
vestigation has proved to bo a farco. Hut it
nears the end , and there will bo a general
sense of relief when the announcements have
been finally made.
The committee meets again , Wednesday
afternoon , to make its llndlngs.

that the assessment of the Union Pacitio sys

ANOTHER LETTER FROM MEYERS.
Mr. O'llooffu Will Give the Dilatory
Architect One More Oliuuoo
A Very Quiet
The County Commissioners.
"I'll bo hero on Monday , but I'll bo d d
if I'll bo hero after that , " said Mr. O'Koeffo
at the meeting of the county commissioners
yesterday afternoon. The expression was
evoked by the reading of a telegram recolved
from Architect Meyers , announcing that ho
would moot the board on Monday. "I've
boon hero waiting for Meyers every day for
the past week , and I'm gottmg tired. "
The meeting of thojbonrd was a very quiet
affair , nothing but routlno business being
County Attorney Mahoney filed an opinion
that tuo telegram of Architect Meyers
authorizing Superintendent Coots to make
changes in the hospital's plans was a compli
ance with the liens of the contract with the
county , and a suflicicnt authority for making
the said changes. The report was placed on
County Clerk Roche's communication ex
plaining the distribution of stationery to the
county ofllclals was received and placed on
ilia. The communication was addressed to
County Attorney Muhonoy , and was as lol-
"In reply to your favor of the 18th Inst. , I
bee to submit my explanation of the report
on stationary of the llnanco committee of the
board of county commissioners :
"As regards pens , there were no pens on
hand when I took charge of the ofllco. The
llrst requisition was made m April , 1883 ,
when I suggested keeping requisitions , the
lirat in use in the county. Since then it is
claimed I have ordered ISO gross of pens. I
liavo supplied the different ofllcos since
April , IHorf , with eighty-throe gross and have
on hand sixty gross. Now , several persons
employed about the court house have called
from time to time , and I have often supplied
them with boxes of pens without the formal
ity of a requisition. This may account for
the requisitions being absent if there are
any. I have always receipted for all station
ery rocolvcd by mo. The commissioners had
the stationery contract ? and it was their duty
to do the cheeking ; in fact I never saw the
stationery billH uutll after the vouchers were
made and allowed. < Muuy orders for station
ery have been given wJtUout my consent or
knowledge , notably by the clerk of the dis
trict court , of which fact I warned the
county commissioners at the time.
"Concerning , tha overcharge for pens ,
Messrs. Gibson , Miller , & Richardson , have
acknowledged tholr mjituuo and will , upon
request , remedy the same , If there is any
blame to bo attached to'tiny ' ono for this , it
must rest with the' commissioners who so
safely hold the contract and never allowed
me to see it. ' < >
"Of the bookbinding and canvas covering ,
I know nothing wha oypr , and it can in no
way refer to mo. The commissioners allowed
and paid tbo bills without contract and you
must ask them to explain this matter ,
"The assessment books and sheets are all
hero and accounted for us follows :
"January 81 , 1833 , 1,100 assessment sheets
value $ b3. You will nnd by taking 1,100
shoots , divided oy SO , us there are 20 sheets
to go in books which will give 55 quires , our
contract per quire $1.50. Total , $ bJ.50.
Then Mr. Rocho gives mo an itemized
statement of these bills , ohowing that the
total for them is $203.50. "
"Tbo erasers , like the pens , " ho continues ,
"have frequently been given out by mo to
parsons whom I well know work for the
county , without the formality of a requisi
tion. The distribution of stationary , such us
pens , pencils and eraseis , has boon amicably
done by mo and without undue oxtrava-
liauco , always with the idea of obliging ofll
clals and Known employee.
"Everything received without an official
order ban been accounted for ; therefore ,
there can bo no charge of fraud possible.
"You will see by the nbovo explanation
that there can bo no charge brought , against
me , except that I may have bcon too obliging
to employes about tha building in letting
them have pcucils , pens uud erasers when
they urgently wnnt.ua them , and this without
a rcqulsitiou. This explanation will , I am
sure , satisfy you and the board. "

The commissioners will meet again on
Monday to consult with Architect Meyers
regarding the hospital plans.
The Palace Stnulss nnd Other Prop
erty Iloinaln in His Hands.
Judge Wakcloy gave a decision In the case
of Ballou vs Shorwood. An exchange of
property , it seems , had bcon agreed on , and
Sherwood , according to Bullou's petition ,
failed to come to time. Sherwood's ' livery
stable , corner Seventeenth and Davenport
streets , is the property in Question. The deal
nmountsto $115,000. The court hold that the
contract was not valid on the part of Ballou ,
because ono signed it for two , but could
show no written authority for BO doing ; then
the contract was not mutual. Bnllou was to
convoy to Sherwood for his stublo and lot
several tracts of land , $35,000 in cash and
some stock in an investment company.
This contract uud its terms were intelligible ,
uut the naso to bo determined was whether
or 1101 the property had boon properly nnd
honestly described. The description given
by the Uallous of the property to ho con
voyed was held as being irregular. Ho could
not discover that twenty acres ol land , de
scribed as adjoining Coda Urllllant pluco ,
Douglas countv , belonged to Uullou , Any
twenty acres adjoining that particular addi
tion mleht have been taken.
The result of tbo decision was that the
contract could not stand , and the case was
dismissed for want of equity , and plaintiff
must pay the costs.
Ho Is Chanted With Complicity In
the Murder of liuna Meyer * ' Child.
William Ellorsick , a saloon-keeper , and
brother-in-law of Lena Meyers , who is
charged with infantcldo , was arrested , yes
terday , charged with aiding In the murder of
Lena Meyers' illegitimate child. The war
rant was issued after hearing Lena's con
fession , charging Ellorsick with being the
father of tno murdered child. The case will
bavo a hearing before Judge Uorka Tuesday
attornoon at 3 o'clock.
Ellorsick not only denies having assisted
in the child's ' murder , but says ho knew
nothing of the case and was In no way
responsible for the child's existence , but that
a traveling man wus Lena's Mayors' seducer.
The case is attracting considerable attention ,
and Is the subject of much street gossip ,

considerable confusion and much Inconvoui
lonco caused by allowing vehicles btocidni
up the driveways , Now why could not our
authorities compel fill carriages , buggio/i / ,

ttioy could stop uny whore and leave room for
others to pass. Any one of them could then
drop out of the line and turn back without
disturbing the ontlro lino. These rules are
observed in all larger cities on the streets ,
and in the parks signs mo placed , lettered
"Keep to the Right. " Unless something U
