LAYING THEIR WIRES a mm mm ' 'Trifkfr Arc Already Arriving fer tba. Mrrllng of the Slat Asaoela tlon This Wrrk and Hecor , Attendance Looked For. (From a Staff Correapondent.) 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 doing tn the political line, but It is gener ally accepted here that he will wlwnp things up for Walt, the two being from the same county. At least three' of the deputies now hold Ing forth at the Btate house will be candl dates to succeed their chiefs. These are Norrls Brown, deputy attorney general, a T.. M . 1 .. ......,.. 1 T w lntn rianittir land commissioner, from Dodge county, and 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 county, 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 the 'candidacy ' of "Eaton are claiming for mm mnar nr ine nrmut irjr 1110 wuia uuiio under Land Commissioner Follmcr. Norrls Brown and McBrlen ere also run nlng on their records as deputies and out at Oeneva Jhe papers have already begun 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. Ollmore, now employed at the asylum, hav ing been appointed from Pawnee county. Several Jays age- a son of C. Duraa of Ballrle county was at the state house, dis cussing Ma father's chances for the secre taryshlp. Of course Governor Mickey and Treasurer Mortensen will be candidates to succeed, themselves. Location Cats Figure. In considering the chancea of candidates. location necessarily will cut some figure. It would.be out of the ordinary Jn - pon tics to nominate a secretary dt state, state superintendent and an auditor from adjoining counties. Walt and Ollmore, both candidate for seeretniy of atate. come from adjoining counties which are also Joined to the counties of Allen, Marsh and Gardner. Therefore It. will be up to some of these men to lose out. McBrlen and fiadtlek are In adjoining counties. separated from the five men mentioned by the width of one county. Adams county, from which French halls, Is sep arated from McBrlen's county by Clny, 1 hen comes Norrls Brown's Buffalo county adjoining Dalxell's Dawson county. Eaton Is away off from the other candidates In . Dodge county, with Manning considerably northwest of Mm. This leaves the ex treme west, now represented by Auditor Weston, out In - the cold and It is thu general talk that someone from that sec ' tlon of the stato will come ' up, or pos slbly Omaha might with every .hope of success demand some recognition. In the meantime a clerk of the supreme court In yet to be named and there Is much speculation as to who the lucky man will ' be. Every candidate Is claim lng the place and apparently no one knowi 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. , Hallroad !latr..N There will be for this occasion a rate of one fare plus 60 cents from all points In , Nebraska to Lincoln and return, except where rato 'of one and one-third for the round trip makes less.

Tickets limited fur return to January i. In past years some difficulty haa been experienced by teachers in securing rates uver the lines of the Omaha road. Bo this year, In responao to a letter from the prln dl.il of the schools at Pouci, stating th:it the agent at that point had not received Instructions to sell reduced fare tickets tl Llnc-vln, ft letter setting forth' the case wus sent to tho passenger department of the rosd at St. Paul. The following reply to tho letter mentioned seems to clear the matter sr.d to Insure the reduced fare over that road: Dear Fir: Tour letter of the IHth Inst. In regard to reduced rates to Lincoln for the annual meeting of the Nebraska State Teachers' association hss been referred to me. We have this day written to our agent at Ponca s to the rates and ar rangements, and I trut that members of your association deplrlng to secure tickets from that point will not experience any trouble In securing them, as all of our saents In Nebraska have been fully In structed. Teachers who live along the line of that road are requested to write Immediately or wire W. L. Stephens, chairman of the local committee, Lincoln, In case their railroad agents refuse to sell state asocla tlon tickets, as per the above announce ment Politics of Session. 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 tlon In the number of members on that 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 senting the various sections of the state, whether a reduction In the number of of ficers would be advisable. Arrangements may be made for boarl and room In private houses and boarding houses at reasonable rates. Teachers de siring to engage rooms In advance must address J. I. Wyer, at Station A, Lincoln, Neb., stating time of arrival, price they want to pay, number In party, board or room or both, time of departure. Mr. Wyer will make assignment and notify each pernon of address assigned.

HELD TO BE CASE OF SUICIDE Brother In Wisconsin Orders Body of Man Fonnd Near Papillitis Bnrled at that Place. 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 permit.

Mr. King has made a success of earth road construction, having kept mud roads In good condition throughout the past season. His experi ments extend over a period of seven years. Prof. Burnett will aend Mr. King to the institutes In the eustern portion of Ne braska, beginning north of Omaha the Oret week in February.

In reviewing he year's work of the United States army In the Department of tbe Lakes, Major John C. Bates, commander of the northern 01- vlslon, says that the character and ap pearance of recruits is not up to the stan dard of those of former years, the num ber of undeveloped youths being especially noticeable. According to the report, the "baby blue" facings for Infantry Is unpopular, and with out exception Is opposed by all Infantry officers, and a return to the white facings is universally deslrod, as is also tho reten tion of the officers' blue overcoats In lieu of the new olive drab overcoat. The gen eral mess system In operation throughout the department Is declared unsatisfactory, and a return to company mess system is recommended. In discussing the need of a military prison, which the report declares has been fully demonstrated. General Bates says: The post guardhouses have been over crowded, although under Instructions from superior authority I have released many prisoners where. In my Judgment, such ac tion was not likely to be detrimental to I 'discipline, and, In some eases, 1 am afraid I have exceeded .tnat limit In efforts to re duce the number of prisoners. Furthermore, I think It a bad effect on the young soldier entering the service to have constantly before his eyes those old soldiers serving long septences, and that It would be in the interest of discipline to send oil men under sentence of a year or more away from the post to a military prison. The roster of the department contains the names of Iu2 commanding officers and 2,764 enlisted men. In the period covered by tho report there were 357 enllstud men tried by general court-martial, this being an In crease of 23 over last year. Of the 307 men tried, 842 were convicted.

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 1829. 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.
