TALK OF THE SPEAKERSHIP
Member of Coming Legislature Coming
Iito Capital to Talk it Orer.
OFFICESEEKERS WAITING FOR MICKEY
Cndahy romptir Baf Proprrtr oa)
Which to Erect a Distributing
Plant and Poultry Wr.
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. Dec. 20. (Special.) Aa the
time draws near for the convening of the
legislature considerable mora Interest la
being developed and much more talk la
being Indulged In a to who will be th'i
apeaker of the house and t,he president
pro tern, of the aenate. So much Interest
la being taken In these two positions that
apparently the minor offices are being lost
' alght of. And, while there are many who
preteid to forecast the organisation of
both hcuses, when It comes down to bot
tom facta the prognostications are all
guess work. One man who is prominent
In the management of the candidacy of cne
of the applicants for the speakership aald
this afternoon that It was Impossible to
tell who would win out, but from the re
ports coming to him It would be either
Mockott or Thompson. Both of these men
had attained some degree of leadership
during the past sessions of the legislature
and both were well known.
While most of the talk around the ho
tela la about these two, It Is by no mesne
certain that either baa a cinch on the of
fice. During the week DelesDernler and
Sweczy have both been at the capital look
ing after their Interests and conferlng
with friends. Sears was also here, but
what they did or what encouragement any
of them received Is not known. Rouse has
not been here during the last few days,
but several of his friends have spoken
good words for him around the hotels.
Sweezy and Rouse are In contiguous terri
tories and It Is not known whether that
will Injure or help them.
The fight for the speakership la consid
erably mixed with the race for president
pro tern of the senate. Since It Is be
lieved that Harrison and Mockett have no
deal or compromise on, It la aald that the
Harrison contingent will take what It
can get and allow the Mockett element to
do Ita own getting. During the last few
days Wilson of Pawnee county has been
requested several times to allow his name
to be mentioned In ccrnectlon with the
speakership. 80 far Mr. Wilson has not
announced his Intention. It la believed by
some that this la a move to hurt Mockett,
as It la likely that Wilson could get soma
of the latter'a support In that part of the
Paul Jessen was here from Otoe county
during the last few days doing consider
able hobnobbing with politicians, but It
Is not public what he accomplished or ex
pected to accomplish. In the meantime
O'Neill of Lancaster Is pegging away and
his friends are doing the same to land the
office that Harrison wanta.
Waiting for Mickey.
When Governor Mickey atrlpea town
Monday morning, aa he Intends to. he will
find awaiting him a number of frlenda of
Office aeekera who will use strenuous ef
forts to have the governor announce the
ramee of aeveral appointees. Among these
friends are members of the National Guard,
who are anxious to have a band In the ap
pointment of an adjutant general.
Several prominent members of the guard
were In the city last night and a quiet ccn.
"terenca was had between them and local
members with a view to arriving at tomi
understanding as to how best to reach thi
governor with one of their comrades. It
la believed that the wishes of the guard
will have some weight with the governor
and the guard doea not Intend to allow the
opportunity to assist In naming the man
rsrape It. There are several candidate
who would meet with the approval of the
guard, but the first thing the guard will
Inetst on Is that the appointee be a veteran
of the Spsrlsh-Amerlcan war. Amonj
those who can 1111 the bill bo far as that,
requisite Is concerned are: Major Glffen
and Captain Ringer of Lincoln and J. H.
Culver of Mliford. The friends of Adjutant
General Colby still believe that he will
continue to draw the salary for the office
after Governor Mickey takes his seat.
Notwithstanding the Impression given
out by Governor Mickey that he would not
appoint a atate oil Inspector until the term
rf the present Incumbent has expired, It la
thought that If he remains In Lincoln very
long during the week this placo will be
t'adahy Ballds In Lincoln.
The Cudahy Packing company has pur
chased a lot at the corner of M and Eighth
atreeta and in the spring will erect a
tructure for the accommodation of Ita
Lincoln business. The building and Im
provements will cost about $60,000. It will
be three stories high, with a basement,
fitted for a poultry house. Cold storage
will occupy a large part of the building.
The entrance of thla company Into Lin
coln la taken aa an indication that It in
tends to meet the competition of Armour,
who has established a number of branch
poultry distribution stations throughout
the state. It la expected the erection of
the building will begin by March 1.

DIVORCE CASE AT COLUMBUS
Dassrll-lleary Trial Oeraplea Attea.
tloa of the District Coort of
COLUMBUS, Neb., Dec. 20. (Special.)
District court Is still grinding away on the !
Dussell-Henry suit, in which the plaintiff, '
A. Dussf II, sues for fulfillment of a con- 1
tract mrde in Denver last March at the
time of the marriage of Miss Jessie Dussell
to Robert Henry, the contract being for $500
and being given for defraying the expenses
of the young wife, who wss then so soon to
become a mother, and tor the care ot the
child. Mrs. Mr.ry A. Henry,, mother of the
young groom, who made the contract, after
wards refuted It on the grounds that It waa
obtained under atreaa of great excitement
and by a misrepresentation of the facta.
Tho defense, admitting part ot the clalma
ot plaintiff, wti granted the opening and
closing perloda in which to present their
testimony, and their first period closed just
prior to adjournment last night. They at
tempted to prove Mra. Henry'a excited and
overwrought condition by Denver witnesses,
most ot whose testimony waa ruled out on
account of being merely hearsay.
The prosecution Is holding forth today
and numerous witnesses have been exam
ined, including Attorney J. Q. Rudn. who
accompanied the sheriff to Denver last
Msjrch when the latter went to secure
young Henry on the ground of statutory
assault, and to whom the contract waa
given by Mrs. henry. The attorney'a tes
timony waa. In effect, that no duress waa
laid on her either la the matter of making
the contract or la bringing about the mar
riage of her son Robert and Jeasie Dussell.
The case will In all probability occupy
the balance of the week, and next week
It la expected that the Borr tiers boys and
the Humphrey boys, charged with the mur
der of their stepfather, will come up. The
latter case la attracting extraordinary In-
