Two prominent gold democrats and one
of the foremost silver men in Douglas
county gave The Bee their ideas, in unadul
terated form, of the Herdman brothers and
their relation to politics. In brief. It may
be said that these expressions harmonised
and were not at all flattering to the Messrs.
Herdman. . . :
The silver spostle, referring to the
Herdman talk that they were net fighting
Bryan, but Metcalfe, recalls the rather lm
passioned Interview by Will Herdman In
The Bee a few weeks ago. In which epithets
wero used and Mr. Bryan excoriated for
assuming to think and talk for the party;
where the blank statement was made that
Bryan must take a back seat, etc.
"That shows what the Herdmans sre
Hrylng to do." said this msn, "The truth
of the matter la the Herdmans hsve shown
their hand; they are franchisee! corpora

politics and they can t fool us any longer."
A gold democrat, a lawyer and a promi
nent politician aaid almost the ssrae thing
in these words:

from first to last. The truth of the matter
is that In Omaha and Douglns county there
Is no Herdman ling or following among the
democrats; it's so small and insignificant
that you can't call it a following."
It now develops that Supreme Court Com

WILL LEE HERD WAN HANG ON?
Ho la Reported to Bo Slated tor An
other Tear as Snpremo Court
Coming almost simultaneously with the
action of the supreme court in retiring
Omaha's two members of the commission,
Judges Duffle and Faweett, is the report
that this city Is still to be represented In
the department of Justice at Lincoln by
Robert E. Lee Herdman as the chosen dis
ciple. The report Is that Herdman is to be
kept in the office of clerk of the supreme
court, the best paying position In the state,
at least until' January 1, 19i0, the united
fight of his democratic brethren to the con
trary notwithstanding. ' Of course It Is not
presumed that the retention of Herdman
and the retirement of Duffle and Faweett
have any compensatory relation.
The story goes that a prominent local poli
tician who would like to see Herdman un
seated, reevntly asked a railroad plugger
If he could tell when the supreme court
Judges were going to be able to agree on a
successor to Lee Herdman, and that this
guardian of public affairs smiled one of
those knowing smiles, carefully winked his
right eye and whispered: "I guess they
won't be able to agree until next January,
anyway. The truth is it s settled for Herd-
man to hold on till then."
Faweett Is DUapsolated.
Considerable disappointment Is felt la
Omaha over the retirement of both the
city's representatives from the supreme
court commission, leaving the largest popu
lation center of the state without a mem
ber of the court or commisitlon. To no one
does the action of the court come with
greuter surprise than to Judge Faweett.
who has not endeavored to conceal his feel
ings. He has told friends that he felt sure
of being retained, because of the statements
and attitude of the judges, particularly of
Judge Sedgwick, who Invited him to the
commission. He had been led to believe,
he has said, that the court was well pleased
with the Omaha representation and thought
at least one should be retained. For this
reason Judge Fawoett said he felt certain
he or Judge Duffle would be kept on the
commission and was rather Inclined to the
Idea that It would bo himself, since he was
only appointed the first of the year. This
leaves Omaha without either a commis
sionur or a Judge on the supreme bench.
The elimination of Judge Faweett Is not
the only surprise. Judge Holcomb was ex
pected to favor the retention of his brother-in-law.
Judge Ktrkpatrtck, and let Oldham
go. The retention of Judgo Letton Is no
surprise, as his action in getting out of the
fight last fall In favor of Judge Barnes was
regarded as assurance enough that Judge
Burnes would look out for him.

That the best laid plans of mice and
men often end In a four flush Is forcibly
but sadly appreciated by J. L. Baker these
days, although he' Isn't saying why every
thing to him is as if seen through a glass
darkly; thst is, not to any great extent Is
he unburdening his soul.
Mr. Baker has always borne the reputa
tion of an alert and successful business
man, and ne Is when he confines himself
to the furniture trade. But the duck
traffic calls into play certain characteristics
in which recent developments have shown
him to be deficient. When he went to
Herman a few days since, with a party of
frnds, and found upon arriving at the
shooting grounds that he had left his
hunter's license at homo he was not much
bothered, because he didn't expect to get
much game. But at the count-up he
found himself the possessor of fifty fat
birds and was puzzled, because he wanted
to take those ducks home with him, of
course, and show the stay-at-homes a
thing or two about the duck hunting
No two men are more unlike in personal
appearance than Mr. Baker and Marc Per
kins. Mr. Raker is light of hair and blue
of eyee and his friend Perkins is Just the
opposite, but the latter had a hunter's li
cense and loaned It to his friend In order
thst the railroad might not exercise its re
puted heartlessness in refusing to transport
Of course Baker foresaw obstacles In the
way of using the license, owing to the de
scription of the personal appearance of the
owner that Is made a part of each license,
But he wanted the ducks and decided to
take a chance, on the understanding that ha
should get a license and send to Mr. Per
kins upon his arrival In Omaha. This
would cost II, but the ducks were worth It,
and so it happened that upon arriving at
the station he did not make application to
have his birds transported until the train
was almost due to leave. Then he rushed
up to the station agent, threw down the
license and asked to have the birds put
aboard in a hurry and it worked all right.
"By tha way, Mr. Perkins," said ths man
of buttons, "did you get the 'phone dim
sage I sent out to the camp to you yes
terday T" he aaked.
"What the that Is, what message?"
"Why, that one from Mrs. Perkins," said
ths other, in some astonishment.
And the Mr. Baker remembered who he
"Oh, that one, you mean. Tea, I got my
wife's message all right. Much obliged,
and Mr. Perkins-Baker breuthed a sigh of
reHef and moved toward the train. But
the end was not yet, for tha steely glitter
that denotes a refuse I to be done came

"Tea. but. Mr. Parkin.. he said. Dluck.

of 2.40 to pay on that message that Til

And of course "Perkins" paid. What else
