LINCOLN, Dec. 27. (Special.) Around
Lincoln these days considerable talking In
rbolrirT done regarding politlcul natters a,nd
.several conversation slutes have been made
fop the next republican state ticket. Some
talking litis been done also as to the ne
'Ccaslty of holding: two conventions. No
tone, however, seems to care whether one
'or two convention are held and so far
as any public expressions are concerned
no one had said.
' Senator Marshall of Otoe county was h'?re
Saturday and had an extended confer jnce
'with Addison Walt, who wanta to succeed
his chief In the offlre of the secretary of
atate. The Otoe statesman said little wus

J. 1m McBrlen, deputy superintendent, from
Fillmore county. Bo far as heard of here
Brown has -no opposition and Ms friends
and promotera are urging his candidacy
as a representative 6f the middle west sec
tion of the state.
MeBrlen, though, If the reports eurrent
here have any foundation, will have some
opposition. Among those mentioned to op
pose him for Mr. Fowler's shoes are: W.
H. Gardner of Jfemnha, Jamos E. Delzell
of Dawson and J. E., French of Adams
Bo far as heard from, Eaton will be op
posed by f x-Senator Manning, who was
postmaster of the senate during the late
legislature, who halls from the northeast
section of the state. Those who are urging

to boost the- latter. i
Last night the Traveling Men's Repub
lican club endorsed J. M. O'Neal of Lan
caster county for state auditor and of
course he will be a candidate for tht place.
Thore Is some talk that Arthur B. Allen
of Johnson county, secretary to the gov
ernor, will be a candidate for this place,
but so far Mr. Allen haa given out no state
ment regarding the matter. Bocretary
Marsh, who comes from Richardson county,
haa also been mentioned for this place, but
It Is not likely that he will be a candidate.
To succeed Bocretary of State Marsh
there are several candidates, among them
F. 3. Badllek of Saline county and A. V.

Just who will get It. During the last few
days the stock of Will Rose of the at-
torney general's office went 'up several
notches, but the stock of the various can
dtdates fluctuates worse than cotton, and
as the Judges are not saying anything It
Is useless to speculate.
' Teachers Are Arriving.
Now that the festivities of Christmas
are over, Lincoln la beginning again to
put on gala attire to welcome the small
army of teachers that will throng the city
this week. Already the advance guard
' Is beginning to arrive, and within two days
the hotels, private boarding houses and
homes, of friends will be thronged with
choolma'ams. Lincoln Is preparing to
welcome and care for fully 2,600 teachers
and present indications to to show that
this number will not far exceed the
actual attendance. Among the recent ar
rivals are: Principal F. W. Deffer of 'St.
Edward, Principal 8, IK Thompson of
Nelson, Principal R, M. Thompson of
Ravenna, Principal W. II. Manifold of
Vlysses, Principal D. 8. Mussleman of
Auburn. Principal W. C. Green of Cozad,
Prlnrlpul J. J. Koasler of Ilartlngton and
Prtnelpal Oeorg Burget of Kearney. All
are enthusiastic over , the coming meeting
and report large delegations from their
towns and counties. From Nelson. Prin
cipal Thompson brings the word that all
of the touchers will attend the state meet
ing and he says that a large delegation
ts planning to attend from Nuckolls county.
From Boone county, Principal Differ says,
Lincoln will have the largest delegation
in tho hlntory at the association. ,

It Is rumored that politics will add con
siderable Interest to the sessions of the
association. There are three members of
the Reading Circle board to elect, and then
the usual friendly contest over the oftVe
of president. Last year the contest over
the office of president wan unusually free
from any strife or bitterness, and as far
as can be seen now this year will follow
closely the precedent established last year,
There is some talk among the members
of the executive committee about a reduc

committee. .The expense Incident to each
meeting of the committee seems to be the
ruling motive. Borne urge that three mem
bers could easily do the work now done
by a committee of five. It remains to bo
seen, however, when It comes to repre

whether a reduction In the number of of
ficers would be advisable.

FA PILLION, Neb., Dec. S7.-(Ppeclal Tele
gram.) After an Investigation lasting sev
eral days the authorities have come to the
conclusion thnt John Nelson, the man found
dead in tho woods along the riat,te river,
had committed suicide. He was found hang
ing to a limb of a tree by his neck with his
feef" upon the ground, a gash had been cut
in his throat extending from ear to car
and almost severing his head, making a
horrible woend. A bullet had been shot
entirely through his Tiead, coming out near
the temple and the man's wrist was shat
tered from a revolver shot. Strychnine In
large quantities was found In Nelson's
stomach, which alone is considered enough
cvtdenco that the man committed sulctdo.
No Inqueat was held.
In answer to a dispatch to Nelson's
brother In Racine, Wis., orders were given
to decently bury the body, which was done.
A letter also stated that Nelson had long
been dtrnented and had often said he would
commit suicide as soon as his nerve would

GOES FOR BODY OF SMITHSON
Remains of Fonndrr of Smithsonian
Institution to Be Brought
GENOA, Dec. 27. Dr. Alexander Gra
ham Bell, inventor of the telephone, has
arrived here. Ho will convey to the Smith
sonian Institution at Washington, D. C,
the remains of James Stnlthson, founder
of the institution, who died in Genoa in
WASHINGTON, Deo. 27.-U is said here
that the reason for the removal at this
time of the body of the founder ot the
Smithsonian Institution from Genoa to this
country Is because a stone quarry has en
crouched on the English cemetery at Genoa
to such an extent that it has become neces
sary to remove the remains Interred there.
Mr. Bell left this country a little more
than a week ago. Congress has made no
appropriation for the removal of Mr.
Smlthson's remains to this country, and It
could not be learned, tonight, on account
of the absenoe of Prof. Langley from the
city, whether the regents of the Smith
sonian had voted money for this purpose
or Mr. Bell was acting on his own initia
tive. The matter had been discussed in
local scientific circles, where the opinion
prevails that the grounds of the institution
in this city are the proper site for thoir
final resting place.

FREMONT. Neb.. Dec. 27. (Special.)
Reluttyes of George Vascalda, a young
farm hand formerly employed at the ranch
of Mark M. Coad, east of tne city, report
that be has been missing for nearly six
months, and from certain circumstances
connected with his disappearance they are
fearful that he has been murdered.
H. A. Vescalda of Topeka, Kan., the
young mans fathef. has arrived In Fre
mont to search for his son. He has en
listed the services of Sheriff Bauman in
that mission, and the sheriff would like
to get bold of any Information which
would tbrou' light on the case. 80 far

On the date mentioned, Vascalda cult
work at the Coad farm( and drew the
wages dua him, which amounted to $42.30,
He wrote home that he was going back
there soon, but when several weeks passed
by and he did not come, his parents ad
dressed a letter to him here, asking whst
detained him. No r-ply was received, and
they wrote again. Both letters were sub
sequently returned to Topeka, with the
information that Vascalda no longer called
for his mall here. -
A team, wagon and outfit of harness
owned by the young msn were left at Ba

Vascalda had nearly $&0 in his possession
when he was last seen. It Is not incon
ceivable that' he may hive fallen in with
companions who murdered him for the
money. Men have been killed for smaller
amounts than fW, and it will be remem
bered that robberies of one kind and an
other have been frequent In this part Of

"In that case the federal Judge would be

he saw had the slightest effect of drawing
out the least expression of admiration.
Weeks and weeks passed, and the rest of
the party were dumbfounded at his lack
of appreciation of the sights which met
them on all sides. Finally It was decided
to send a committee of four, two gentle
men and two ladles, to his room and in
quire what it was prevented his enjoyment
of the trip.
" 'Old man,' said one of ths committee,
'tell us what is the matter. If any one in
the party has displeased you we will dis
miss him; if any wrong has been done you
we shall see that It is remedied, but doJ
tell us what the trouble is, for we are

PIERRE, 8. D., Dec. 26. fflpeclal.) At
the meeting of the Missouri River Ktock-
newed efforts to subdue the seceding state;
that, thereupon, Texas applied for admis
sion to the American union; that there was
not the necessary two-thirds In the senate
to make the treaty of annexation; thit
John C. Calhoun railroaded a Joint resolu
tion of admission through congress a dan
gerous precedent happily never followed;
that the bouujary between the stitee of
Tamalipaa and Cohull, on the ens band,
and the state of Texas on the other, was
more uncertain and unsettled than the
same question now Is between Iowa. South
Dakota and Nebraska; that the julnt reso
lution aforesaid presumed to settle the
dispute "without the aid or consent" of
Mexico, and fixed the boundary ad filura
aquae of the Rio Grande river; that Gen
eral Taylor refused to enter tbe disputed
territory until h had received express or
ders from the president; that the batte of
Palo Alto was fought while Arista was re
slating the Invasion of Taylor; that congrers
never declared war, but declared that war
"exuited'' between the United State and
Mexico. This Is history which every school
boy ought to know.
