WEST POINT, Neb., July 26. (Special.)
Another severe electrical storm and
heavy rain Interfered seriously with har
vesting operations In this county last
night. A strong wind accompanied the
storm and did great damage to the ripened
grain, laying It flat In many fields. About
one-third of the harvest Is done at thla
time, and with floe weather for the next
few daya will be finished In six days more,
but the prospects are for more rain, which
will be very harmful to uncut grain. Corn
Is In splendid condition, never looked bet
ter, and with no untoward weather will
yield a crop above the average.

LINCOLN, July 26. (Special Telegram.)
The unheralded visit of D. H. Mercer and
Frank Ransom during the early hours' this
morning may be significant In connection
with the Indefinite poatponement of Oov
ernor Savage's trip to Omaha to confer with
Interested persons regarding the Fire and
Police commission appointments, especially
aa the two men were In close consultation
with the governor while here.' They came
on the train arriving here at 12:40 a. m.
They were Joined down town by the gov
ernor and together the three went to the
Elks' clubrooms, where they remained while
the reports of the Jeffrlee-Fltxslmmons
prize' fight were coming In. After the knock
out they went to the Lincoln hotel, where
they remained in uninterrupted conference
for over an hour. The midnight visitors
left the city on tha 7:45 train, returning to
"That waa all a pipe dream," said a man
close to the governor, speaking of the re
port In The Bee that Oovernor Savage
would arrive In Omaha at t o'clock this
afternoon. "He didn't Intend to go any of
the time."
Notwithstanding the declaration of Gov
ernor Savage and his friends to the con
trary, there are good grounds for the as
sertton that the meeting of the early morn
ing was prearranged, but on short notice,
and that It was all because of the gov
ernor's expressed intention to listen to
Omaha taxpayers before making the ap
pointments. Tha reason Mercer I Inter
esting himself In the case la self-evident
for with a commission whose appointment
he has dictated or Influenced he will be In
a position to exercise authority over the
commission's creatures. One msn almost
hysterically remarked when he heard of
the court's decision declaring It to be the
duty of the governor to make the appoint
ments, "that will save Mercer If he can
name the men for the commission."
