VB1TM0RE FOR THE REGENCY
Douglas County to Preient Him for Place
n State Tioket
WEBSTER ON RESOLUTIONS COMMITTEE
Members of the Delegation Hare
Already Agreed on the Various
Blatters of Its Own Or
ganlsatloa. The Douglas county delegation to the
republican state convention at Lincoln next
Tuesday will present the name ot Hen.
William O. Whltmore of Valley for the
nomination for regent of the stato uni
versity. Mr. Whltmore has been consid
ering the question of his candldiiy for sime
time at the solicitation of friends and has
finally concluded to accept the position If
It Is tendered to him. Mr. Whltmore is
well known as a suocessful farmer and
stock raiser and has been In publlo life as
a member of the state legl:liture. He
also stood for the position of university
regent as the nominee of the republicans
In 1894, although on that occasion none of
the candidates on the ticket were success
ful. A large majority ot the delegates
elect to the coming state convention hive
Indicated their desire to support Mr. Whlt
more for this place and he has also been
assured of support from other counties.
The delegates have practically agreed, In
addition, to an organisation of the delcga
tlon with W. W. Bingham as chairman and
lion. John I Webster as member of Yho
resolutions committee for this d.str.ct. Ths
members of the state committee w'.'.ose
terms expire are: Victor R -s 'Water,
Charles E. Morgan and B. E. Wilcox. T.ie
last two are not asking to be re-elected, so
the choice has been expressed for com
mltteemcn for Douglas county Victor Rose
water, Charles V. Fear and Joseph
. Chairman Ooss of the republican county
committee has had a tabulation made of
the delegate apportionment for the next
county convention under the new rules
adopted by the committee fit the last
meeting. This tabulation gives a total
membership In the convention of 431 able
gates. For South Omaha the representa
tion Is partially estimated, because the
ward and precinct lines there have been
changed since the 1900 'election, the appor
tionment being based on the vote for presi
dent In that year.

would not have it if tendered mo," said
General Charles F. Manderson when asked
If he Would become a candidate for vice
president of the United States, for which

continued. "I appreciate the kindness of
the Sixth Ward club, as that is my old
ward. But I am not a candidate, nor would
I accept the nomination. I am out of poll
tics. I had twelve years of It at Washing
ton and have no further aspirations for
political '.lfe. There is too little domesticity
to be enjoyed there, and I am a home man.
I really had not given the matter much
thought, being occupied with other busi
ness, but I am free to say very emphat
ically that the vice presidency should come
to the west by all means.
"You may certainly say for me that even

The Impression that Shrlver was out of the
race came from a chance remark he made
concerning the expensive filing fees re- J
quired under the new primary rules.
The county convention of the socialist
party of Douglas county will be held at
socialist headquarters, 619 North Sixteenth
street, Friday, September 4, for the nomi
nation of candidates for county Judge,
sheriff, coroner, county treasurer, county
clerk, county surveyor, superintendent of
fcchools, county commissioners, clerk of the
district court, county assessor, police Judge
and such other officers as are not herein
name'd, and for the transaction of general
miscellaneous business. All members of
socialist party In the county In good stand
ing are entitled to participate In the pro
ceedings. The call Is signed by Parker 8.
Condlt, chairman, and J. J. Condon, secre
tary, of the socialist county central committee.
At a meeting held In the office of Chair
man Ooss the executive committee of the
republican county central committee de
cided to Issue at once the call for the re
publican primaries to be held October 6
and the convention to be held October 10.
The meeting was called to correct some
clerical errors In the primary rules and to
make some additions that had been over
looked by the county committee. The
county central committee will meet Septem
ber 13 to name Judges of the election and
to select polling places. The committee
added to the list of offices that of police
magistrate, whose fee will be 36; coroner,
t'jO, end road supervisors, 13. Justices of the
peace In the country were added, but no
fee was attached for becoming candidates.
The remainder of the changes In the rules
were merely clerical.
The committee decided to have the new
rules printed and distributed and this will
be done at once. The committee expects to
get busy now In preparing registration rolls
by precincts, this being necessary owing
to the fact that precinct primaries will be

STICOEY PROMISES TO HELP
President of Great Western Pledgei As
sistance in Oompletioi of Auditorium,
DOES NOT- NAME ANY DEFINITE SUM
Last Line to Enter Omaha Taking
Lend In Enterprise Directors
Hope Other Railroads
The Chicago Great Western railway will
help Omaha build the Auditorium. Presi
dent A. B. Stlckney so told a committee
of business men who waited on him at the
Millard hotel Thursday afternoon. No
definite sum was mentioned, but It Is be
lieved the road will purchase IE,000 or $Q.00O
worth of stock, tho president saying that
he would name the amount later.
This will be the first subscription toward
the Auditorium made by a railroad. It is
pledged by tho chief officer of a line that
has not yet established a terminus in the
city and which has' had a stiff legal bsttle
to be assured of entrance over the Union
Now that the last transportation line to
reach Omaha has been first with an Audi
torium subscription. It Is confidently ex
pected fliat the bther lines will respond
with equal or exceeding generosity. Such
Is the hope held by the members of the
executive committee of the Auditorium
The committee that called upon Presi
dent Stlckney by appointment Included the
executive committee, and was composed of
these well known business men. J. E.
Caum, Charles H. Pickens, Frank J. Car
penter, F. E. Sanborn, Arthur Smith, F.

Introduced by Kellogg.
Frank B. Kellogg, general counsel for the
picture of the Auditorium as It will appear
when completed and was much pleased
with It. He remarked, laconically, that It
would make a pretty fine station building
If properly located.
The committee thanked the president for
his generous treatment of the proposition
and departed much pleased with- the inter
view. The fact that the Great Western
contributed a handsome amount to the
Kansas City Auditorium leads to the be'.let
that Omaha will be as liberally treated.
STRANGE FREAKS OF MEMORY
Incident of roaKhkeepste Man He
called, Tog-ether Wltb Parallel
Case, by Chief.
The stranger stopping at the Morgan ho
tel In Poughkeepele, N. Y., who totally lost
his memory and who was Identified from
descriptions published of him as Dr. Harry
P. Cate of Lakewood, N. J., was In Omaha
some months ago and yesterday Chief
of Police Donahue recalled the incident.
Cate called upon the chief to tee about his
baggage, which It seems he was i.avlng
some trouble In getting located. An officer
was sent out with the man and the bag
gage was found all right.
"I remembered the man well," said the
chief, "as soon as I saw his picture, but
yesterday I could not lecall the Incident.
1 remember well now trrat he cime to tho
office to see about his bagg.ige.
"This was the second cae of the kind I
remember of," said the chief. "The other
was a Kansas City fireman named Evans,
who had shipped some potatoes to Lincoln.
Something went wrong and Evans started
to Lincoln to see about the shipment. He
never got there and the Plnkertona were
put to work on the case. James McFar
land, now superintendent of the western
divlHion of the plnkertons, after eighteen
months' search, located Evans in a hos
pital In Liverpool. On the road home with
him Evans regained hi memory and said
he had no Idea how he ever got to Liverpool."

South Omaha and compete for a share ot

In replying the president said he was
willing not only to make a definite pledge
of support for the Auditorium, but was
pleased to have the opportunity to show
hi good will toward Omahan. He had
fully decided, he announced, to help the
people of Omaha build what he eharac

"I want It distinctly understood," said
President Stlckney, "that the Great West

friendly feeling. I have taken up the In
terests of Omaha In conference with the
officer of the company, and they were all

Plans are being prepared by the Union
Pacific for Increasing the trackage facilities
at the Union station, now that the Chicago
Great Western will run Its passenger trains
Into that depot. The eight tracks row in
place are scarcely adequate to lianrtlo the
trains at certain periods of the day and
heavy movements have taxed the tracks to
The plans at present are to ndd two pas
tracks and put In place one more umbrella
senger tracks to the south of the present
shed. The large shed running north and
south will be extended over the entire ten
tracks. The placing of these new tracks
will necessitate the moving of the fence
between the freight and passenger trucks
and will encroach on the freight tracks, so
that two of the upper tracks in the freight
yards will) have to be torn out.
Work on the additional tracks probably j
will be undertaken and flnltilied this fall, as
the necessity for them is ulmost'lmmedlnte.
It Is Inferred from these preparations by
the I'nlon Pacific that It has abandoned
