R the whistles tooted that It was 4
o'clock and everything was off exhibitors
began to take down their wares and be
fore tomorrow night the grounds will be
clared. The crowds yesterday and to
day saved the day for the fair board and
1t la probable there will be no deficiency.
Th advertising exhibits and the agricul
tural exhibits this year were better than
ever before and In all respects the fair
seemed to give ertlre satisfaction. Owing
to the Interest taken In the ball games.
It Is likely this will be a permanent fea
ture of the fathering. President Mellor.
who Is not long from the pitchers' box
himself, conceived the Idea of a ball
game and It proved a drawing card.
Douglas county, which Is supposed by
the rest of the state to be the borne of
Injunctions and farmers who farm the
farmers, carried off the prlie for the best
collective agricultural exhibit, scoring 1.170
out of a possible 1.W0. Washington county
came next with a score of 1,449. The other
counties finished as follow: Pawnee, 1.440:

President Mellor of the fair board an
nounced that the receipts this year from
the concessions amounted to at least $MK)
more than last year, while the attendance
was within 2,o" of last year. The differ
ence In receipts will not be more than
K.OOO In favor of last year.
Holrnmb nt n Caadldate.
Chief Justice Silas A. Holcomb will not be
a candidate for re-election. Last night he
authorized" the statement that owing to
the condition of his health he would not
he a candidate for the democratic nomina
tion and If the nomination were tendered
him he would he compelled to decline !t.
Judge Holcomh expressed his gratitude to
the people of Nebraska for the honors they
have given him and said he expected as
a private cltlxen to work for the best In
terests of the state which has been so good
to him. When Judge Holeomh's term Is
concluded the first and the last of the old
band of populists will have passed out of
official life In Nebraska. Judpe Holcomb
Is stilt confined to his home, but Is slightly
Improved and expect soon to be able to
leave the house.
Prominent democrats In Lincoln wtio
have expressed themselves since It became
positively known that Judge Holcomb
would not be a candidate say that ex
Commissioner Hastings will be the demo

H. C. M. Burgess, chairman of the repub
lican state committee, may be a candidate
for re-election and may not be a candidate
.Jor re-election. He may .announce his can
didacy In S few days and he may decline to
be a candidate In a few days. But Just at
this particular time Mr. Rurgess Is In a
state of "statu C(Uo," meaning that he Is
not yet ready to announce his Intention.
The announcement in the State Journal
yesterday morning that he would not be a
candidate was without the authority of the
stata chairman and has greatly Incensed
Mm To a Pee reporter today Mr. Burgess
siid: "I have never told a living soul
whether I would be a candidate or not. and
I am not yet ready to say whether I will
be a candidate or not; but the Intimation In
the Jouraal that I was going to assist an
other party to become chairman Is without
foundation and Is malicious. I wish that
you would publish a correction of the state
ment so that the members of the committee
and the republicans of the stata will know
that it is absolutely false. When the proper
time arrives I will tell the people whether
or not I win be a candidate for re-election."
Thames Booms Kearney Xorsnal.
A. O. Thomas, superintendent of the
Kearney Normal school, was In Lincoln
today, attending the State fair and whoop
ing up the Normal school, which will open
September 2. That the school will open on
this date Is not generally known and Just
now Mr. Thomas Is using his best en
deavors to get the announcement generally
Incidentally Mr. Thomas Is standing up
for C. H. Gregg on the letter's contract to
furnish hardware to the amount of fUOKI
to the Kearney Normal school. Mr. Gregg
being a member of the board. "There Is
nothing wrong about Mr. Gregg being In
terested In that contract." said Mr.
Thomas. "The contract waa first let to the
Lincoln Hardware company and then trans
ferred to tre Stoddard company. W. E.
Jskeway, who was Interested In the Lin
coln company and also In the Ptoddard
company, asked that the contract be trans
ferred to the Ptoddard company. A brother-in-law
of Gregg desired to open up a hard
ware business at Kearney and did organize
his company. The building they intended
to secure was rented by another company
and then It was the Stoddard company
agreed to sell out and the new company, of
which Mr. Oregg Is a member. bought the
concern. Governor Mickey knows all about
the affair and It is all right."
When the matter came up before the
board Treasurer Mortensen asked Mr.
Gregg If It was legal for him to have that
contract and he replied that as an Indi
vidual he had no right to the contract,
but as a member of a corporation holding
the contract tt,e transaction was all Wgal
and proper. Gregg has received his money
for the hardware.

Guardsmen Hot IMscearaa ed.
The team from the National guard which
participated In the army shoot at Sea Girt,
N. -J., and returned home a few days ago,
does not feel discouraged that It finished
third from the bottom or fifteenth from
the top In the contest. One member of
the team said: "The conditions at Sea
Girt under which the contest waa pulled
off were entirely different from what we
had expected. The teams from the east
used thermometers, barometers and every
thing else, while we expected the contest
to be pulled off according to the practices
in vogue on a battlefield. With their pat
ent gauging apparatus they could take
Into account the atmospheric conditions,
m-hlle we who had been trained to shoot as
they will have to shoot In actual battle,
had none of these aids."
General Culver believes the trip of the
team will result In stimulating the guard
members In attaining a higher proficiency
In the art of shooting and of handling fire
arms. Jnry Asks Pardon for Convict.
A delegation of Sioux county cltiiena,
among whom were nine members of a Jury
which convicted Charles Russell of murder
and for which he was sentenced to the
penitentiary for life, called upon Governor
Mickey this morning to ask that a pardon
be granted the man. Russell has been In
the penitentiary for, five jears and the
Rev. D. J. Clark of Chadmn, who headed
the delegation, said evidence had been
found which proved conclusively that Rus
sell had not committed the murder of
which he had been convicted. The victim
In the case was A. F. Ftaudenmaler, whose
body was found shot full of holes out on
a prairie three miles from his cabin and
six miles from the cabin of Russell. As
the two men had had trouble and It was
known Russell waa handy with the gun,
he was arrested and charged with the
crime. He was convicted on circumstantial
evidence and the decision of the lower
court was- affirmed by the supreme court.
He probably will get a pardon.
Pratt Gets enre.
O. H. Pratt of Omaha, contract agent
for the Nebraska Telephone company,
spent a miserable few minutes at the Bur
lington station this morning which his
frends are now enjoyng to the uttermost.
Pratt, on the siytgeston of a 13-year-old
boy, was gathered under the sheltering
wings of a great policeman and charged
with having sold the boy a worthless
horse for fifty-five good silver dollars.
Pratt thought It a Joke at first but when
the boy Insisted that he give him back the
money and take his old horse. Pratt began
to realise that' It was something serious.
As the policeman suggested they go to the
station and there make an explanation,
Pratt bethought himself that Mrs. Pratt
would arrive from Omaha on the train
within a few minutes.
"Good Lord I can't go to the station,
my wife's coming In on this train. Its a
mistake. I never owned a horse In my
"He's the man that sold me the horse
mister," the little boy Insisted. Then some
of Pratt's friends, known to the policeman.
came to his assistance and proved to- the
policeman's satisfaction that it was a case
of mistaken identity. The boy still Insists
Pratt Is the man. The boy paid 55 for the
horse at the fair grounds yesterday with
the' understanding that If the boy's father
didn't like the trade he could get his money
back. The father didn't like the trade.
When the boy got to the grounds the man
hsd left and he at once got a policeman
and went to the station where he Jumped
