(From a Btaft Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Bept. 11. (Special.) That the
republican state convention will meet
In Lincoln next Thursday Is not
evidenced ' by any political talk at
the atata capital. Old politicians
who have been able to . give the right
"hunch" as to who would "be nominated at
a atata convention weeks before the con
vention claim to be up In the air about the
matter, and It Is the general belief here
that the matter has not been set but that
the nominations, both for supreme Judge
and for resents of the university, are still
up In the air. A well-known politician
from northwestern Nebraska who was
here yesterday predicted the nomination of
Supreme Court Commissioner C. B. Letton,
and said that all alone the line of the
Northwestern railroad there was a general
sentiment In favor of Letton. Whether or
not the legal department of the North
western has been using Its influence or will
use Its Influence for Letton he could not
aay. Other men from Out In the state who
have visited Lincoln lately say there has
been very little discussion of candidates
and that no one could make a safe pre
diction as to what would be the outcome
of the convention.
Around the state house the Idea Is gen
eral that an anti-pass resolution will be
adopted, and one state officer at least has
announced that If such a resolution Is
adopted he will at once surrender his pass.
This man, during the month of August,
traveled over 4,009 miles on official business
without cost to the state. He is now mak
ing arrangements to conduct his business at
long range, at least until the next legis
lature makes an appropriation for his
There Is some talk of a resolution re
questing the nominees for regents to pledge
themselves to hold open meetings when
transacting business for the state uni
versity and thus do away with the execu
tive session and the censored reports of the
meeting which are now given to- the public.
Baralar Robs State Treaanrer.
A thoughtful burglar who entered the
residence of State Treasurer Peter Morten
sen last night relieved that officer of a
delicate duty which probably he himself
would have performed after the next re
publican state convention. ' The burglar
wilfully and maliciously did take from the
coat pocket of the state treasurer certain
annual "courtesies" over certain railroads
In Nebraska, which had been presented to
the state . treasurer in the form of passes.
Along with the courtesies the burglar took
i In cash, a gold watch and some Jewelry,
the latter the property of Mrs. Mortensen.
The burglar removed the screen from a
window, raised the window and walked
Into the room, lighting the way, evidently,
by matches, as a number of burnt ones
were found scattered over the room. The
fact that Mr. Mortensen failed to awaken
during the visit of the midnight Intruder
Is attributed to his easy conscience and the
knowledge that no complaint has ever been
made against him as state treasurer.
Burglars also entered the house of Judge
Tlbbetta and attempted to enter the house
of Frank IfolUngsworth of the land com
missioner's office. At the latter place Hoi
llngswortb awakened and scared the men
away.,' At, ..Judge Tibbetts' the burglars
secured a quantity of silverware and a
small sum of money.
Trembler of Normal Board.
Governor Mickey In all probability will be
called upon to take a hand In affairs of
the State Normal board. The minority fac
tion of i the board is not pleased with the
manner In which the majority Is transact
ing the business which oomea before the
board. It has been customary for some
time when a matter comes before the board
to refer It to the executive committee "with
power to act.".. The executive committee la
composed of Chairman Ludden, Tom
Majors and C. II. Gregg. When the propo
sition comes to a show down, Delsell usu
tti&f votes with the executive committee,
thus making a majority. By giving the
executive committee power to act, Ludden,
Majors and Gregg virtually control every
act of the board. These are all appointees
of Governor Mickey, and the governor has
the power. If he so desires, to discipline
them, and It Is Intimated that a member of
the minority faction will request the gov
ernor to cast his eagle eye over the sltua
f.'Btnst Return to Mlssonrl.

A gentleman who has acquired a Judi

value of Grape-Nuts as a food. He says:
"For the past five years Grape-Nuts has

STRANGER KILLED BT A THAI
Man Giving Name of John Bernhardt
trnrk by F.ngrlne Near Tekamah.
TEKAMAH. Neb.. Sept. 11. Special.)
Passenger train No. T, southbound, ran
over and killed an unidentified man about
four miles west of this place this morning.
The man appeared to be a worklngman,
about M years old; he had a telescope and
a small grip and was standing In the mid
dle of the track when the train came around
a sharp curve. He seemed to be scared, as
he made no effort whatever to get out of
The coroner's Inquest, held here this
afternoon over the body of the man killed
by train No. 7 this morning, supposed to
be John Berhardt, completely exonerated
the train crew.
Conductor Capllnger, Brakeman Palman
tler, Engineer McClalr and Fireman Jones
were the principal witnesses, and all testi
fied to practically the same thing that the
deceased when first seen by the engineer
was standing in the middle of the track
with his face turned sideways, and he
seemed to be looking down. The engineer
blew the whistle and rang the bell, but
he did not move. The train struck him
and threw him over against the right of
way fence. The train stopped, backed up
and brought the body to this place and
turned It over to the coroner.
In an Interview with The Bee reporter
this morning Burn Kelly, aged 12, told the
following story: "The man that was
killed by the train this morning rode from
Herman to Tekamah yesterday with me
and my brother, arriving here about :30
p. m. He gave his name as John Bern
hardt and said he was on his may from
Omaha to Sioux City to see a sister who
lived at that place, and also to find, work."
Kelly also said that the man was so
hard of hearing that they had to yell at
him or he could not hear at all.
Although the deceased had a telescope
filled with clothes, there was not a scrap
of paper found that would in any way
lead to his identity.

Peter E. Her asked the general council
committee for a number of Important priv
ileges in connection with his proposed new
twelve-story hotel at Sixteenth and Howard
streets, yesterday afternoon. The commit
tee agreed he should have everything he
asked for. Mr. Her had his requests care
fully written out and attached to a picture
of the hotel and cuts of the plans for each
floor; also a map of the city showing the
route of his conduit line for the supply of
water; carbon dioxide and heat.
Tabulated Mr. Iler's wants are these:
Permission to lay pipes through streets
and alleys from Sixth and Leavenworth
streets to Sixteenth and Howard for the
distribution of water taken from a sub
terranean current of the Missouri; the
transmission of carbon dioxide to be used
for refrigeration, preservation ot foods and
fire protection, and for the distribution of
heat from a central plant under the new
hotel. These conveniences are to be ex
tended not ohly to the hotel but to other
buildings that Mr. Her owns along the
rlght-f-way. All the pipes are to go in the
Permission to move the old Her residence
from the corner of Sixteenth and Jacksqn
streets back on the same lots to the corner
of Seventeenth and Jackson; to move the
west one-third of a four-story, 22x100 foot
building, known as the Garfield block to
the southwest corner of Sixteenth and Jack
son streets; to move the three-story brick
60x90 foot building at Sixteenth and Howard
to a lot next to the alley on Fifteenth
Permission to excavate under the side
walk on Howard street to the curbline and
eight feet In the alley between Howard and
Jackson streets; also to build a subway In
the alley so as to connect with a hotel
.Necessary to New Hotel.
Mr. Her said all these things are neces
sary for the construction and renting of his
new hotel, on which he expects to begin
construction within six or eight months.
The city attorney advised him, he said, that
the pipe line privileges are not In the na
ture of a franchise, as he Is to supply only
his own buildings. An ordinance will be
prepared embracing all the concessions and
submitted to the council for passage.
Incidentally Mr. Her told the council that
he Is about to make a contract with G. E.
Goldner, manager of the Stoneyhrook Brick
and Slate company In York county, Penn
sylvania, to assume the supervision and
management of a new brick manufacturing
plant at Sarpy City, which will have an
output of about BO.000 bricks a day. He pro
duced letters from Mr. Goldner, who was
out here recently. In which the writer
agreed to terms made by Mr. Her and
digressed on the details of brick manufac
ture. Mr. Her announced that he will at
tempt to form a stock company to estab
lish the plant, but that If this falls will go
Good Soft Mad Bricks.
"Experiments have shown that a superior
quality of soft mud bricks can be made
from the clay at Sarpy City," said he.
"This means that the price of brick In
Omaha will be cut from 10 to 15 per cent.
We can make the material to sell for 16 per
1,000 for the best, or face brick, as against
prices of from 37.60 to 38 now prevailing.
The brick can be shipped up here for J4 a
car. They will be first-class building brick
and of a kind now largely used In the east.
Oil will be used In the plant for fuel and we
will, be making bricks for the new hotel."
Mr. Her announced that about ten miles
of the Omaha. Beatrice A Lincoln electric
railway has been laid between Lincoln and
Bethany, and that recently twelve cars of
steel were received, which Is going down as
fast as it can be laid. Three contractors
have the grading work In hand.
A request from Mr. Her for the sale to
him by the city of a small piece of ground
near Second and Hickory streets Is pend
ing. He says that the land Is needed for
the construction of a four-story brick
building that will be used by a new radltor
manufactory and a new paint factory. The
latter will make the. product from ore
found In mineral deposits on a tract ot land
