STATE HAD AID FOR BRYAN
Public Money Used to Get Recruits for His
ANOTHER OF THE GOVERNOR'S ' SCHEMES
1'lrNt mnl Scconil Itrulinrnl * Illndcrcil
While the Third IN MMMVII ratom

lime to Mettle.
LINCOLN , Oct. 6. ( Special. ) The claim
has often been made tint the Third regi
ment received special favors that wcro not
granted to the other regiments In this
state nnd the claim has ns often been
denied by the popocratlc officials , who wcro
anxious to have the Bryan regiment sent to
the front , where It could attain military and
political glory. It Is now learned from an
official source that the machinery of the
stale was used to furnish recruits for the
Third and at the same tlmo to hinder the
recrultlnK of * Ve other two reglmen',3 anl
that the crpenso of this political favoritism
will have to be borne by the state.
I : will bo remembered that at the tlmo
the pres'dcnt was picvallcd upon to accept
the Brjan regiment ho called attention to
the irquest just made upon Governor Hoi-
eomb to furnish 660 recruits to the FK'st
and Second regiments and expressed tbo
hop ? that the regiments already In the field
uhou'nt bo filled up before any other rcgl-
m'nt was mustered In. Soon after , v.hen
the Third regiment was getting ready to
mobilize at Omaha nud the recruiting officers
of thn other tv o regiments were In the state
trying to get recruits. It is well known that
officers of companies In the Third read
orders to their men notifying them that
they could not be allowed to join cither of
the other regiments These orders pur
ported to hive come from the headquarters
of the Nebraska Guard , but were disavowed
by the governor and the adjutant general.
MMcltIt lliiril for Hecrnlti.
It Is a matter of record , however , that
the recruits to the First nnd Second regi
ments were required to pay their own rail
road faro to the place of enlistment and In
the case of being rejected had to pay their
own faro homo again This was such a
hardship on the young men who lived nt n
distance from any recruiting station that n
large number who wanted to enlist remained
nt home because they could not afford th6
f personal expense and , as a consequence , the
recruiting was delayed a long time Ono of
ficer , who was stationed nt Lincoln nnd who
ras raising men to fill the Second regiment ,
nt least paid out a considerable amount of
his own money to defray the expenses of
the remaining recruits that he needed so
badly All requests made by the recruiting
officers for transportation were Ignored by
the governor , or the statement was made
that "for some unexplained reason It was
r Impossible to secure transportation for re
At this same time the machinery
of the state was being used
to get recruits to Bryan's regi
ment as rapidly as possible nnd trans
portation was furnished to bring men from
all parts of the state. When it was learned
that transportation was being furnished for
recruits to the Third the governor was In
terviewed on the subject nnd gave out the
Impression that the general government was
paying the faro of the men and that he did
not know why the recruits for the Second
were not favored in the same way.
It now develops that this transportation
\\as furnished on the request of the state
officials and that the bills for the same
have been charged up against tthe state ,
to bo paid some time in the future. Thta
explodes the story that the general govern
ment was furnishing the transportation and
it also proves the charge so often made that
the rankest of favoritism was shown the
Bryan regiment. The governor now has the
assurance that the expense bills for the
men finally mustered into the volunteer serv
ice will be paid by the War department ,
but that railroad fare of the men rejected
because of physical disabilities will have to
toe berne by the state. But the recruits
to the First and Second regiments , having
paid out their own money to reach the re
cruiting stations , nro-out of pocket just that
much and no effort wlrl bo made by the
governor to reimburse them or to present
their claims to tbo War department. It was
a deliberate plan to boost the Third and
delay the First and Second and the expense
of the plan will bo berne by tbn state , aside
from that already paid bj ' atrlotle in
dividuals who wcro an.loi' oin the two
order regiments in the field
\ Mniir .IhiiNci ICemilt.
The wholesale Issuance of transportation
to recruits for the Third resulted In many
abuses. There were a number of cases
where men went to Omahii at the expense
of the state , well knowing that they would
bo rejected by the medical board. They
were running no risk of financial loss and
turned the trip Into a little pleasure junket
At this same tlmo young men were paying
out all their pocket money to get to Lin
coln to muster In with Hnrtlgan or other
\ recruiting officers and while waiting for the
examination wcro living on cheese and
crackers and sleeping on the floor of the
armory here. To get these men hero and
to take care of them after they arrived took
many hard dollars from the private funds
of the recruiting officers and no aid was
extended by the men who now are crying
that the war was mismanaged , nor was
any relief offered by the officials who were
nt that time showing so much activity In
the raising of men for the Bryan regiment.
The total expense entailed by the state in
the scheme to rush Bryan to the front can
not bo computed at the present ! time , as the
vouchers are not all on file yet. When the
amounts are finally paid from the fund pro-
vldwl by the state for tbo maintenance of
the stare guard , that fund will be materially
reduced nnd the claim made by the popo-
crntlc campaigners of bow much they have
"saved" iu the handling of the state guard
will have to be reduced In the same proper
tion. Not only will tbo fund be depleted , but
the money will bo paid out for the railroad
faro of men who never weie In the state
guard , but who were being rushed to Omaha
to Join a regiment that was mustered dl-

rcctly Into the volunteer service. So It will
bo peen that Bryan's shoulder scraps and his
opportunity to poao for photographers nt
Jacksonville will coil the state a pretty
largo sum after nil nnd that It will have
been drawn from tin appropriation In an un
authorized manner. In Cho meantime- the
men of the Second regiment will understand
the reason why they were so long getting
their full number of recruits , The recruiting
officers have understood the situation all the
time , and It Is said that ) they are unani
mous In condemnation of the part played by
the governor and the other officials , nnd
that their feelings In the matter are not
In the slightest exccnt ruled by their Indi
vidual political convictions Several of the
recruiting olficers hnd always been fusion-
Is'ts , but they now have no excuse to offer
for the performance of the state adminis

LINCOLN. Oct. 6 ( Special. ) Employe !
In tbo state Institutions wcro some weeks
ago compelled to pay an assessment to help
defray the campaign expenses of the "re
form" officials. The amount of this first
assessment was said to have been 1 per cent
of the yearly salary of the employe. An
other assessment has just been made ,
amounting to l'/4 per cent , or 18 per cent of
the mtnthly salary of the Individual. This
assessment Is In the nature of blackmail
end the employe who declines to pay Is sum
marily discharged from his position.
Proof of this system of political black-
mall was obtained I-day J p. McCrosson ,
n guard employed at the penitentiary , gave
an order to cash a $30 voucher and the
warden drew the money for him. McCros-
son was then tendered a personal chock for
$24 60 ns his share of the money , the bal
ance. Just IS per cent of the whole amount ,
being held out for political purposes. Me-
Cresson objected to the assessment , de
clined to sign a receipt for $30 In exchange
for a check for $24.00 and was at once dis
charged Ho retains possession of the tell
tale check ns pro-.f of the holdup. It
seems from this sample that the "reform
ers" are hard put for campaign funds and
that the monthly "saving" from the wages
of state employes will bo the biggest fea
tures of their campaign.

LINCOLN , Oct. 6 ( Special Telegram )
Among the opinions just handed down by
the supreme court Is ono reversing and re
manding the case wherein T. P. Kcnnard
was allowed $13,521.99 for collecting certain
money from the general government. The
court holds that In the joint resolution
passed In 1873 , which authorized the em
ployment of n collector , there was a special
"Inhibition of the employment of an agent
to collect the C per cent cash school fund
accruing to the state , " and Kennard's claim
being bused on the collection of this fund ,
he could not recover.
In the ca-io wherein Herman Granger of
Sheridan county was sentenced to the peni
tentiary for stealing a cow , and who came
to the supreme court with a plea that the
bill making cattle stealing a felony Im
properly passed the legislature , the court
holds that , "Where from the journals of
both branches of the legislature , and from
the copy of the bill sent to the governor for
approval and by him approved , and which
was attested by the proper officers of both
houses It Is shown that a certain bill was
properly passed , that fact cannot bo dis
proved by the Introduction in evidence of
what It Is agreed between the litigants was
the bill originally Introduced and memo
randa thereon Indorsed tending to show that
the bill approved and attested was not the
ono really passed by both houses. "

murdered here , his head being cut off with
a razor and his head and body laid
across the railroad track In such
a manner as to make It appear
that ho had been killed by a train. Abra

but wns released for lack of convicting
evidence. Others were suspected , but it
looks now as If the deathbed confession of
Mrs. Jeffreys of Hillsboro , O , Just made
In the presence of four persons whom she
called to her death chamber , will reveal
the identity of the murderer. Mrs. Jeffreys
implicated herself , another woman and four
men , giving their names. She said that
she held Ball's head whllo a man cut It off
with a razor ; that the blood was allowed to
flow Into a tub which was afterwards con
cealed under a houro and that the other
woman held Ball on her lap whllo his head
was being cut off. The men carried the
body and head to the railroad track to covet

desire of the convention that Instructions to
the commissioners to be appointed to the
International peace conference proposed by
the crar of Russia shall recommend the
establishment of permanent court for the
settlement of all differences by arbitration
Several resolutions on the question of
marriage and divorce were presented and It
v..is moved that the discussion of these
questions by the convention bo held behind
closed doors , but some objection was made
to Immediate consideration and the mat
ter was referred to the calendar of busi
ness for consideration by a commission.
The communication received yesterday
from Felix Agonclllo. the representative of
Aguluardo. now In this city , was read by
Dr. McConncl of Louisiana. The documents

The convention then took up the report
of the committee on the rovlslon of the con-
, -it.tir.n Men v > as made a special order
for 11 o'clock.
ii.o aruuimmcnts acted upon were these
adopted by belli houses of the general con
vention to become operative. The first of
these affected the question of a title for the
constitution , canons , etc , of the church and
provided it bhould be as follows.
"ConstltMtiors nnd canons for the govern
ment of that portion of the Catholic church
known In law as the Protestant Episcopal
church in the United States of America ,
The amendment made by the last conven
tion incorporated in the title the following
words : "That portion of the Catholic
church known In law as. " The change had
few advocates , but many opponents , who
asserted that the change made the title
cumbersome and awkward ; that It was un
necessary to declare the Episcopalians were
a par'J of the Catholic church and some wag
would soon nickname the Episcopalians the
"in law" church. The resolution was cVe-
ffnted 108 to 3.
The next amendment which contemplated
the substitution of "Article lrt for Articles
1 , 2 and 3 of the old constitution , and which
was adopted almost unanimously by the last
convention , was also defeated by a vole of
92 to 17. Meantime messages hnd been re
ceived from the house of bishops that they
had adopted both the amendments rejected
by the house , but In each case a motion was
made In the deputies' meeting that they re
fuse lo concur In the action of the house
In 'the ' house of bishops most of the time
was consumed in amendments to the con
stitution already referred to.
A message of sympathy was directed ro
be conveyed to Bishop Nlles of New Hamp
shire , who Is seriouslv ill. Petitions were
presented for the creation of a new diocese
In India and also for the division of the
Japanese district into two dioceses
The afternoon session of the deputies was
consumed In the consideration of an amend
ment originating with the committee on
constitutional revision which Incorporated I
In the constitution that vision of the ca- '
nonlc laws which , requires the selection of
bishops shall be sanctioned by a majority
of the standing committees In all the dlo- 1
ceses of the church. It gave rise to inter- I
mlnable debate and the deputies adjourned |
without acting on it. They argued that ,
the provision would have a tendency to
bring the people together In better church
relations than if the selection of the bis
hops was left to the dlosese n.one. The
opponents of the change contended there
was no demand or necessity for it. '
The main speech in opposition was made
by Dr. Wcllcr of Fond Du Lac , Wis. , who
said when a bishop was elected there was
always a minority In the church opposed to
his confirmation nnd covered the whole land
with scandal. It was not a question of
larger laity representation but larger liberty
and freedom in the state.
"If you want to wash the church's dirty
linen , ho concluded , put this provision In
the constitution. "
It was announced that the woman's aux
iliary , also In convention here , had reported
a collection of $ SO,400 for missions , about
$25,000 more than the previous year.
Adtournment was then taken until to
The delegates commenced the considera
tion of the amendments to the canons
recommended by the committee. Those dis
cussed today related mainly to ordination of
Ilrnzll V.'anln n Itlahop.
The bishops referred to a committee cf flvcj
a memorial from the Episcopal church In
Brazil , asking that the church in America
consecrate for It a bUhop. The church here
had provlrlon in it < i laws for consecrating a
mlEislonary. but the petition presents a new
question It wa also determined , In view
of the technical difficulties nt present en
compassing the matter of constitutional re
vision , that the tubject of the consideration
of "tho amendments repoi'tel by the joint
committee be indefinitely postponed. "
This action refers to certain amendments
to the conf tHutlon passed on favorably by
the bishops three years ago but which were
never finished by the deputies It was at
first p'oposcd again to consider them ct
this convention , together , possibly , with ,
amendments , but , as above stated , the Idea
has been abandoned. They have no bearing
on the amendments now under cons deration
by the deputies. ProvUlon was made by tils
