urer llennlngs of Omaha, who is In the
city for a couple of days, said this after
noon that he Is not a candidate for the
state treaaurershlp, because he is a candi

Governor Haa Hope.
Officials close to the governor and in his
confidence suggest that the cause of fair
railway taxation will not be lost, even
should officials without convictions on the
subject be elected, since The Bee case of
1902 establishes a precedent for the use
of mandamus proceedings to compel the
state board to assess the corporate prop
erty at Its full value. The precedent estab
lished this year will serve as the inln.muin
below which the future boards cannot go,
according to these persons.
