LINCOLN, June, g. (Special.) There
are scores of democrats and populist lead
ers throughout the state, who confidently
believe that t J. Bryan will be the next
fusion nominee for gtivrnor. They bass
their belief principally on the ground that
be will be the choice of those elements of
both parties which would oppose a fusion
on any other candidate. Populists who
would not willingly vote for the nomination
of apy other democrat woifld go gladly to
.the support of Mr. Bryan.
This condition Is cadilng the party lead
era to do aom serious thinking. There are
numerous democrats who contend that Mr.
Bryan should remain In the background for
a while, but they are not tllnd to the hos
tility of the popujlsta and rather than see
two tickets In the field they would consent
to his nomination.
"Whatever opposftloo there Is to Bryan lt
Jlkely to come from the democratic aide if
It la known positively that Mr. Bryan will
accept the . nomination' said a democrat
today. "Of course the populists want the
nomination; they want man of their own
party at the headof the ticket, but they
realize that the democrat's are determined
In the same direction. In my opinion It will
be a deadlock for not less than forty-eight
hours, or It wlU tie" Bryan with a whoop.
If Mr. Bryan signifies to his political
friends that he woull not accept tha
nomination and the fat became cenerally
known he would probably pedropped. But
bere we . have, the uterance of a leading
populist, a former senator, who ays that
after due consideration he believes that
Bryan la the man. That editorial la olng
to have a tremendous effect."

Pursuant to orders of the Board of Edu

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Neb., Juno 2. (Special Tele
gram.) W. J. C. Keflyon of Omaha today
purchased the entire property of the Lin
coln Packing company, at West Lincoln.
The sale includes two well equipped pack
ing houses and several hundred acrea of
feed yard. Mr. Kenyon tonight says he
made the purchase Individually.
"I expect to take Immediate posseesslon,"
said Mr. Kenyon tonight, but for some time
at least, I will not operate the packing
house. The atock yards will be improved
and enlarged. Upward of 8,000 acres will
be used, a large portion of which will be
for sheep grazing."
Mr. Kenyon aays the Omaha Stock Yards
company, of which he is manager, haa no
Interest In the purchase. He bought the
property and will operate It himself. It
la understood that arrangements have been
completed and are a part of today's tran
saction, for the purchase of a tract of 500
acres of saline land near the packing
houses. This land Is, or was, the property
of the state, but has not been used In re
cent years. The Lincoln Packing company
ceased operation of ita plant about three
years ago, but has continued to offer facil
ities for stock feeding. - Under the new
ownership the yards will be Improved and
enlarged from time to time, but thua far
no definite plans have been made for the
opening of the packing house plant.
Harry L. Carpenter, for. years one of the
chief clerks In the stock yards offices an t
of late auditor of the company, will go .0
Lincoln aa manager of the yards there.
Since the Lincoln Packing company has
closed down there will be no attempt to
slaughter live atock there, the yards being
used merely for feeding purposes. As Lin
coln Is a point where stock destined for the
various marketa frequently divides the pur
chase of the yards there Is considered a
stroke of policy by the commission men
bere. By having representatives of tho
South Omaha yards on hand at all times at
thla Important feeding station It la thought
that some shipments now sent south will
be sent to this market.
