i: N very probable that C. II. Gregg,
Member uf .the State Normal board, who
rtlrd h claim egalrst the state for payment
of Xl.tAo for hardware furnished the Kear
iey Normal -vhool by the Kearney Hard
ware company, of which h) Is president,
will have to make explanations to others
than the state auditor. Mr. Gregg as
nppolntcd a member of the Normal board
by Governor Mickey, and the fact that he
Is a member of a corporation which fur-nl.-hes
supplies to a state Institution Is In
direct opposition to the policies of this
administration and It Is safe to predict
that governor Mickey will not allow the
Incident to pass without some explanation.
U was reported today that the contract
was transferred to the Stoddard company,
which wo succeeded by Mr.' Gregg's com
pany, at the personal solicitation of Mr.
Uregg. Just why the transfer was made
or for what purpose the records In the
atate superintendent's office do not dis
close. It is not unlikely that Governor
Mickey will call upon Mr. Gregg for an
explanation, and . that In the very near
In the meantime Auditor Searle will not
Issue the warrant for the payment of the
claim until some other member of the
board signs the receipt showing that the
hardware has been delivered to the proper
authorities. Thin statement Mr. Searle
made this afternoon.
Omaha Man Arrested.
Ned Morris was arrested here this morn
ing and lodged In Jail on complaint of
Cackley Brothers, liquor dealers of Omaha,
wno charge him with embezzlement. The
particulars of the case .were not received
by the police, but according to Morris he
has been traveling for Cackley Brothers
for about a year and quit last Friday with
out making a final settlement with them.
He says he has collected some money,
probably $70 or $xn, which he has not yet
reported to the firm and probably this Is
the reason for his arrest. It is customary,
he said, for a liquor salesman to use the
firm's money he has collected when he
runs out of expense money, and that Is
what he did. He thinks Cackley had him
arrested merely to get ths settlement. Mor
ris has a wife residing In Omaha. He
was taken to Omaha this afternoon.
Colonel Matter Lands Again.
Judge Alton B. Parker, late candidate
for the presidency on the democratic
ticket. Is to visit. Nehraska on a hunting
trip next yAr. and during his stay In the
west he will be the guest of Colonel John
a. Maher. The latter Intends to take
Judge Parker and a number of friends who
will accompany him to the west, to his
ranrh, where It Is said, the best chicken
shooting In the world Is to. be found, and
keep him for a couple of weeks. A num
ber of prominent Nebraskans are to be
Invited to go with the party on the hunt.
Colonel Maher recently sent an Invitation
to Judge Parker to . visit Nebraska this
fall and yesterday he received a reply from
the New Yorker that owing to a press of
legal business he would be unable to get
away this year, but that next year he
would be glad to come to Nebraska for a
couple of weeks on a hunting trip. Oilonel
Maher will endeavor to get Judge Parker
to time his visit so that he can be here
during the atate fair next year, and then
after a few days In Lincoln visiting the
fair to take him to his ranch for the
' Bryan to Attend Convention.
Contrary to expectations William J.
Bryan will attend the democratic state
convention to be held here September 20.
It was the Intention of Mr. Bryan to start
for the orient about that time, but for
some reason he has changed his plans and
will be In Lincoln on the date of the con
vention. He, with Mrs. Bryan, will leave
within a few days after the convention
en their trip around the world.
, The populist state convention will hold
forth at the same time as the democratic,
but It Is given out positively by a prom
nent democrat that no conference commit
tee will be appointed by either convention
and that this year the democrats will go It
lone. Of course,, this mand said. If the
democrats nominate Chief Justice Hoi
comb, as it now seems probable they will
do, then the populists and democrats will
likely trot again In double harness. Each
convention, however, he said, would act
on Us own responsibility and there would
be nothing In common between them. Judge
Holcomb Is still In the west and whether
his health has sufficiently Improved to
