democratic and popullitic executive com
mittee will meet Jointly in this city to
morrow evening, to fix the time and place
for the state nominating contentions. Al
though no dates have been suggested by the
party- leaders, the Impression seems to
prevail here that the conventions will be
called for July, and that Lincoln will b
made the meeting place. There has been
some talk of late conventions, but the ma
jority of the party workers In this city
favor beginning the campaign sooa after
th republican convention Is held.
Democratic and populist candidates ' for
the gubernatorial nomination are getting
numerous. Among the populist candidates
sre: Congressman W. L. stark of Aurora,
R. D. Sutherland of Nelson, former Gover
nor W. A. Poynter of Lincoln, and t)r.
Damarell of Red Cloud. Friends of these
men are already at work. Oeneral Victor
Vlfqualn of this city is mentioned as a
democratic candidate, and C. J. Smyth is
being urged by torn of the workers.
Windows Nark Damaared.
Roofs, billboards and signs in all parts
of the city were blown away by the terrific
wind, which began about 11 o'clock last
night, and. continued with unbated furr to-i
day. At Normal, a suburb of LfncOln. the
old power shed of the Normal college was
demolished. The roof of the South street
atandplpe was caved in. A farmer living
three miles southwest of the city sustained
the loss of 200 thoroughbred and fancy
chickens, killed In the destruction of the

streets a portion of a roof of a tenement
building was blown away, leaving the fam
ilies of J. K. Litton, B. W. Hlgglna, Mrs.
McDougall without shelter. Numerous plate
glass windows In the business district were
broken. About midnight a slight shower
fell, but today's wind and sua quickly dis
sipated the moisture.

Only two day's intervene before the time
s,et by the supreme court for the execution
of William Rhea, and yet the governor has
given no intimation as to whether or not
he will commute the sentence. It is as
serted by reliable authority, however, that
the governor intends to grant a respite of
sixty days' and the impression prevails that
the pecalty will finally be changed from
death to Imprisonment for life. When In

to either deny or affirm the report, but
said he would reach a decision and make
It public tomorrow or Thursday.
Nearly all state, county and city offices

pointed by the school board.
