MHDP IN FIRST DISTRICT
Possibility Call for Bpeoial Congressional
Election May Be Illegal
NO SESSION BEFORE GENERAL ELECTION
(Ideation Alio ArliM Whether the
Two Parties Will Be Inder Obli
gation to Hold Cote
From a Staff Correspondent)
LINCOLN, June 23. (Special Telegram.)
Republicans and democrats of the First
congressional district will In all probability
hold no election July 18 to select a succes
sor to Senator Burkett. This because the
proclamation Issued by Governor Mickey
calling; the special election Is. In the opin
ion of prominent attorneys. In direct con
filet with the statutes and Is therefore null
and void. Section 108 of the Complied Stat
utes bearing; on this subject reads as roi
When a vacancy occurs In the office of
representative In congress or members of
the legislature, and the body In which such
vacancy exists will convene prior to the
next general election, the governor shall
order a special election to fill such vacancy
at the earliest practical time and ten days'
notice of such election shall be given.
It Is claimed the election proclamation Is
void for the reason that there will be no
k session of congress before the general elec
tion, or at least no extra session of con-
' v. I lfA.4
gress has been called
Governor Mickey Issued his proclamation
under the Impression that there would be
no election In Nebraska this fall and that
President Roosevelt would call a special
session of congress.
Advisors of the two candidates, Pollard
and Brown, have had the matter under
consideration all day, but refuse to Issue
any authoritative statement, but that both
sides realize the proclamation Is void Is
evidenced by the fact that not a wheel Is
turning In either headquarters and all
operations have been suspended. In fact,
everything politically is up In the air. It Is
beHevosl by leaders In both parties that
Governor Mickey will rescind his proclama
tion within forty-eight hours, but whether
he does or not. they say the election will
be void. ,
. Mar Mean Another Convention.
Should Governor Mickey withdraw his
proclamation It Is held by prominent at
torneys that it would be necessary for both
the republicans and democrats to hold
again their nominating conventions. Prom
inent democrats tonight said they would
merely renominate Mayor Brown, while
prominent republicans said there would bo
a right for the republican nomination
Should this be the case It might mean the
defeat of Candidate Pollard, as many of
the Lancaster republicans have not yet be
come reconciled to him. Should the candl
date pull off the election anyhow, It Is
claimed that any one who would have his
name put on the ticket at the general elec
tlon and who received any votes would be
Attorney General Brown tonight said he
would prefer to look Into the matter fur
ther before making a statement, though he
thought If both sides participated In the
election, and a special session should be
called before the general election, there
would be no trouble. Otherwise, he said
the call for the election probably was void,
Chairman Metcalfe of the democratic
committee had this to say
"I take It for granted that Nebraska's

attorney general would not make such a
serious mistake as to advise the governor
to call a special election unless he knew
what he was doing. We have made all our
arrangements for a clear-cut fight for July
18. Of course If our republican friends are
so badly scared that they want to find an
excuse for postponing the date of battle
we must submit. Mr. Brown Is really the
Togo In this fight and he cannot, of course,
conquer Rojestvensky until he Is able to
meet him. We believed all along that we
had the enemy on the run. We are sure of
It now. Tct we are prepared to fight It out
July 18 or at the general election."
LABOR FEDERATION ENJOINED
Temporary Order Issued In California
at Instance of Cnnnecticni
SAN FRANCISCO. June 23.-Unlted
States Circuit Judge Morrow has granted
the application of Dietrich E. Loewe & Co.
of Danbury, Conn., for a temporary in
junction against the California State Fed
eration of Labor and the San Francisco
labor Council, which Is boycotting a local
firm of Jobbers In the hats manufactured
by Loewe. The Injunction pendente lite
was granted on the ground that the unions
had conspired not only to protect them
selves, but to destroy the property and
ruin the business of the complainants.
The defendants' contention was tiat they
had used neither force, threats nor intimi
dation and had only urged upon the friends
of labor the necessity of using their pa
tronage for the benefit of labor a constitu
But can it be truthfully said that this
Is all that has been done by them In forcing
the boycott?" the court proceeds and points
out that this Is the power of "combined
numbers" and that the company is helpless
"unless they surrender the management
and control of their business to a labor organization."
AH employes have the right to quit their
employment, but no right to combine to
quit In order thereby to compel their em
ployer to withdraw from a mutually
profitable relation with a third person for
the purpose of Injuring the third person
when the relation thus Bought to be broken
had no effect whatever upon the character
of the reward of their services."

LINCOLN. June 25. (Special.) The re
publican state commltree will be called
together within a few days, at least within
ten days, to sot a time and select a
place for holding the state convention
to select a candidate for supreme Judge
and two condldates for regents of the
State university. Chairman Burgess Is
out of the city today, but Is expected
back shortly to consult alxiut the time
of the meeting of the committee.
Already T.ancaster politicians have be
gun to talk about a candidate to run
for the place of Chief Justice Holeomb
and new names arc being discussed every
hour. Among those mentioned are: Com
missioner C. B. Letton of Falrbury, Com
missioner Ames of Lincoln, Commissioner

In fact, before the opinion of the court
deelnrlng the biennial elections law Un
constitutional had been out an hour, the
ever watchful Lancaster politicians were
discussing probable candidates and now
the Interest In the Judicial race has over- i
topped and overshadowed the congres

B. II. Oouldlng of Kearney, assistant
secretary of the senate last winter, was
among the visitors to Lincoln today and I
he put In a good word for K. C. Calkins j
of Kearney. Mr. Gouldlng also said the

Clyde Barnard, reading clerk of the
late house of representatives, who was !
here last night and today Is paying some
attention to the congressional race be- '

Barnard said the outside counties would ,
get out their full vote and If Lancaster
failed to come up to the old-time majority
for Pollard It would have to pay the
penalty by a reduced representation In
the next congressional convention.
Senator Fries was here Wednesday
night en route home from a visit to Vir
ginia and John Wall was here this morn
ing. Both of these are prospective can
didates for governor next year. Fries
said he was too tired to talk and Wall
was too busy putting the finishing touches
on the house Journal to say when he
would formally open his campaign.
Assessment Hecord Sinned.
The records of the State Board of Assess
ment were signed this morning by Gov
ernor Mickey, Treasurer Mortensen, Aud
itor Searle and Land Commissioner Eaton.
Secretary of State Galusha was absent and
his name was not affixed to the final find
ings of the board.
Incidentally the big fight Is yet to come
between the threo new members of the
board, Searle, Eaton and Galusha. The
latter made a statement yesterday that
Searle and Eaton had broken faith with
him in that the three had agreed to prevent
a final vote being taken during the absence
of either of the three. Searle and Eaton
this morning emphatically denied the state
ment and said tomorrow they would give
out a signed statement In regard to the
charge made by Galusha.
Governor Mickey and Treasurer Mor
tensen are disappointed that the Union Pa
cific was riot assessed at a higher valua
tion, but feel under the circumstances they
did the best they could. All three of the
new members stated emphatically they
would not vote for an assessment over
112,000 a mile and fearing that Searle and
Eaton would go to the figures of Galusha,
$11,000 a mile, they accepted the 112,000 as

Gas Plant for Mate House.
Deputy Auditor Cook has taken the pains
to figure out that it would be cheaper for
the state to have a gas plant of its own
than to pay the Lincoln Gas company for
lighting the state house. Mr. Cook today
figured out that the state has paid this
company during the last year, from June
to Juno, 11,476.60 for gas. This does not In
clude the money which has been paid out
for electric lights. About $700 of this amount
was spent during the legislature. Mr. Cook
