(From a Btalt Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Aug. 2 (Special.) Consid
ering tha fact that a repuolican state con
vention and a double-headed demo-pop
county convention were held here thla
week, thlnga along political linea ara cle
tresslngty quiet. Of course, the uual
Lancaster right la still on, and the domi
nant faction la atlll being bucked and
watted, with apparently little hopes, how-
aver, of It being toppled over.
R. J. Oreene, who led the to-called guer
rilla to defeat agalnat Bud Llndsey. for
member of tha state committee, la now
real mad at the guerrillas for not fighting
In tha last ditch, Instead of dying easily,
aa they did. Ha expressed his sentiments
In a local paper one evening this week,
and In that statement apoka of lining 'up
for the next legislative delegation.
And whenever this legislative delegation
business is mentioned, there are a few
members of the old D. E. Thompson fol
lowing who have been having some work
to steer through the troubled times during
Mr. Thompson's abet nee, who are anxious
for htm to return.
"He will take his organisation and
straighten out the kinks In about a m.n
ute," one member said. And the general
belief Is that Thompson will be home, and
that very shortly. The- date of his home
coming has been set all the way from
January 1 to June 1. never later than tha
last date, however. His wife is on her
Theaapsom a4 the Tesjaw
And whenever Mr. Thompson is men
tioned It has some reference to the next
United Slates senator. Some friends of
the Braslllan minister say that If he la
not a candidate he will surely have a word
to say about who will get the place. In
this connection It la rumored that Gov
ernor Mickey Would just as soon step out
of the state house into Washington as not.
To give credence to this belief, a copy of
the Manltou Springs Journal was received
at the state house today containing an In
terview with the governor. The story
winds up with the editor's announcement
that "Governor Mickey will be the next
senator from Nebraska." Whether the gov
ernor gave out the announcement of his
Intentions to the Colorado editor, or
whether It waa just the tatter's enthusi
asm for an old time friend, la not stated.
Lavaab Dislikes the Pern.
Michael Lamb, the Greeley county
farmer who was sentenced to nine
years In the penitentiary for sell
ing a few head of cattle he didn't
own. has a distinct aversion to serving
those nine years. Consequently his at
torneys have filed a brief In the supreme
court asking for a rehearing.
"The punishment Inflicted la both cruel
and unusual," says the brief. "Nine years
In the penitentiary at hard labor, Sundays
and legal holidays excepted. This is ad
mitted by the closing paragraph of the
sentence: It la the opinion of the court
that after the service of a portion of this
sentence that a parole may be advisable
If It can be legally done.' This la quite a
clear statement upon the part of the
court that tha sentence is exoesslve. If
thla errer cannot be remedied by the court
by commuting the sentence, the case
should be reversed. A recommendation to
executive clemency Is a request to undo a
part of what the court does at the time
of doing it. If It should be undone. It
should not be done. It Is but fair the eiurt
should know why the record Is thus. The
court In talk to the prisoner said he was
going to make the sentence so long It
would be an Inducement to reformation,
by the governor paroling. When the
court's attention was challenged to the
fact that the statute as to parole did not
apply to second term prisoners, he placed
It In the record for the guidance of the
governor. It says to this court, while the
sentence Is nine years, the court deems It
exoesslve and does not Intend the prisoner
shall be Imprisoned nine years. Just how
long the court deemed the prisoner should
be Incarcerated before paroled he does not
"It Is uncertain aa what la to be done
with the prisoner on legal holidays and
Sundays, whloh are excepted from the
days of Imprisonment and labor.

Barns Held for Trial.
William J. Burns, who fllmflammed Mr.
Llzxie Williams Into a mock marriage with
him, was this morning bound over to the
district court In the sum of ISO). He waived
a preliminary examination. When Burns
was arrested he telegraphed J. A. Cochrane
of Kansas City, western representative of
the National Art and Literature bureau,
lor which Burns claimed to be an agent,
to send him $50. as he was In trouble. In
stead of sending the money, Cochrane came
to Lincoln today, and after learning the
cause of Bums' trouble promptly de
nounced him snd his stories and said he
would discharge him. Burns could not
glvo bond and went to JaiL
Burns claimed that he waa getting chorus
girls for the eastern concern and In order
that the girls would not be rejected when
they reached the east he subjected them
to a physical examination and measure
ment. Many girls, the daughters of re
spected families, consented to be measured.
and even went so far as to give Burns tl
tor doing It The fathers of these girls
have become very much Incensed against
the man and there waa talk at the police
station when Burns was arraigned of giving
him a dose of tar and feathers. One 17-year-old
girl refused to allow Burns to
measure her unless other women were
present. At this Burns told her she was
too Innocent for his purpose anyhow and
allowed her to go. Burns told tt that Con
gressman Richardson was at the head of
the concern, but this Cochrane denied.
Cochrane claimed that his company sold
books and vehemently denied that they
engaged In any chorus girl business.
Mickey Back front Colorado.
Governor Mickey and family returned this
afternoon from a visit to Denver, Manltou
Springs and other Colorado points. The
governor reports a most delightful trip
and said he met many old veterans at a
reunion held at Manltou. He had plenty
of good fishing and good breexes and good
climate. The crowds, however, he raid,
were so large that It was almost impossible
to secure comfortable quarters.
Love Ret Insane.
The Insanity board today declared that
John Love was not Insane even If the
county attorney did file that complaint
against him. While several witnesses were
heard In behalf of the charge there was
very little to indicate that Lova had gone
wrong mentally. It was brought out
though that he was somewhat peculiar In
his beliefs. Love has the mental science
Idea down to a finished degree. He be
lieves that a half dosen men can stand
In Washington and control the thoughts
and actions of a man In Lincoln. He had
attended a mental science school In Wash
ington and was somewhat worked up now
he said, because the professor In charge
had been sending out suggestions to him
that were Inimical to his health.
Police Judge Cue grave testified that Love
had complained to him that a jeweler
known by the name of Hahn had used the
thought racket on him to the extent that
he was unable to use his engraving tools
or to do ' any work when Hahn got to
thinking. The police Judge suggested to
Love that he transmit to Hahn the thought
that he (Love) would use a six shooter If
Hahn didn't quit thinking. Love then. It
was reported, got to making threats ver
bally Instead of thinking them and It was
for that reason he was jerked up before
the board.. . His friends are very Indignant
that any one should thtnk Love Insane.
He was advised to take a few days rest.
Boy's Bass Crashed.
Raleigh Wilson, aged 1 years, had his
right hand almost torn from his wrist,
and the bones of the wrist and forearm
badly shattered and broken by being

Western Newspaper union. Wilson Is em

FREMONT. Neb., Aug. E.-(Speclal
The democratic primaries for the selection
of delegates to the county convention were
held last evening. The democrats seem to
be making a strong effort to regain their
control of Dodge county politics, which
havo been gradually slipping away from
them during the last six years, and any
number of the faithful are striving hard
for the different nominations. Their con
vention Is called for August 24. and that
of the populists for the same day. The
latter party has been pretty much all ab
sorbed by the democrats and there la not
much left of It The fights in the demo
cratic convention will come over assessor
and county clerk. O. W. D. Reynolds and
George Looschen, both oldtlme wheel
horses of this city, and J. J. Farrell of
Pleasant Valley want this office. For
clerk, C. O. Boa of this city snd Dennis
Killean of Union have been aspirants for
nearly a year and Boe will probably get It.
There Is no active aspirant for county
Judge, but Editor Schaeffer of the Platte
River Zeitung, on account of his two phe
nomenal runs for assessor, wilt be given
the place. The treasurer, county superin
tendent and clerk of the district court will
be renominated. Clerk Crulckshank was
elected as a populist, but since the disinte
gration of his party began has "affiliated"
with the democrats In their caucuses. It
Is generally conceded that Judges Hollen

inees for district Judges In the Sixth dis

The ' Inquest consumed about two
weeks and according to reports was
one of the most sensational cases ever heard
In Marshall county. Miss Strohm, at the
time of her death, waa. in the employ of
Charles Pusch, a cigar manufacturer cf
Marysvllle, who. It Is alleged, bought her
a nice home and furnished her with every
thing that her heart could wish for. Pusch
paid her constant attention and, tt Is al
leged, that he was criminally Intimate with
her. When she passed away suddenly and
was laid to rest at Holmesvllla the next
day after her death without much cere
mony, there appeared to be some mystery
surrounding her death.
The authorities concluded to make an In
vestigation. Owing to the prominence of
the parties a strong effort was made to
prevent tho case from being heard, but
Miss Strohm's sister from the east in
sisted on an Investigation. Dr. Gafford
of Wymore, assisted by Dr. C. W. Walder
of this city, held an autopsy on the. body
to determine the cause of Miss Strohm's
death, and while none of them could swear
positively that a criminal operation had
been performed, enough evidence was se
cured during the coroner's Inquest to hold
Dr. Hosmer and Charles Pusch responsible
for the young woman's death.
