I am not going to be ft candidate

Although I had madfl up my mind
not to make thin known until after
the holidays, 1 have decided, on ac
count of certain papers publishing;
fnk interviews, to make thla stale
inent nt once.
1 have come to the conclusion,
after carefully conslih-rlng the ltu

to retire from public life when my
term as treasurer expire.
tity Treasurer Ilennlngs (rave The Bee
this signed statement Saturday.
This derision was reached by Mr. Ilen
nlngs after several days spent (n can
vassing the situation and a short stay In
Lincoln, which he spent In quiet medita
tion away from the busy political whirl.
Whether Mr. Ilennlngs will retire from the
office of treasurer by resignation, a pre
viously indicated, when County Treasurer
Fink takes charge oil January 4, la now an
open question and until the time arrive
Mr. Ilennlngs is unable to say. Inasmuch
as the school board will refuse to release
the bond Hied by the city treasurer until
Ills term expires. In May, will have a
bearing on thla phase of tho situation.
Not a Bore Spot on II I m.
After giving out tho statement, Mr,
Ilennlngs said:
. "That explains everything. I have not
another word to say. I am quitting with
out a sluglo bo re spot and I am quitting in
time so that no other candidate can bo
embarrassed. I came to the conclusion
not to be a candidate, after careful study,
and thought over the matter and I know
that I have acted wisely.
"The fake Interview I referred to ap
peared in the State Journal and did nbt
contuln a word of truth. It was written
by a man who has had It in for me ever
alnce I became treasurer of tho state com
mittee. "I do not know at this time whom I
will Bupport for mayor, but of course I
hall take an active part In politics and
when the proper tlmo conies and when
I have decided whom to support I will,
' of course, get busy for that candidate.
However, I am not worried In the least
about anything and I am glad I have
gotten out of the running. I am not sure
what I will do about resigning when Mr.
Kink takes charge of this office. That will
have to be decided later."
Interview He Repudiated.
The Interview which npieared In the
State Journal which Mr. Ilennlngs branded
a a fake Is as forrows:
Seeking to gc away from the turmoil of
Omaha polltii-B while he could, tlirure out
a course of action. Air. A. Ilennlngs, the
city treasurer, has been In Lincoln for two
or three days, lie said to a reporter that
he was here simply for a reHt.
"I have not annnounced that I am a can
didate for slate treasurer," said Mr. Hen
Mngs. 'That story has been started by
Mr. Itosewatcf, who does not want me to
be a candidate for mayor. He is opposed
to ine because I will not agree to do
everything he wanta done.
"We are having a pretty lively time up
there, and everything is so mixed up I
wanted to get away where 1 could reHt
and think.
"Broalch la a candidate, too, and he la
lining up the saloons. lie thinks they will

have no use for him. Hosewater will have

Mr. Ilennlngs was rather gleeful over
one phase of the situation. He said that

Prosperous New Year
l'ermit us to thank you for the ,preatest holiday trade
in our entire business career. In spite of the great addition
to our floor space in our New Annex and Arcade the unpre
cedented crowds taxed our capacity to its utmost and at
times hampered our service. For any inconvenience that
shoppers may have experienced in the last few days we
wish to offer our apologies.
Wo have eVery confidence that next year we will be
settled in our magnificent new building fully equipped to
care for much greater crowds, which Omaha in its rapid
growing condition will certainly furnish.
Very respectfully,

A. W. Smith of Bis Pine, Wyo.. Is In the
city superintending the recent shipment of
a large bunch of cattle from his ranch In
the Green river country to the Omaha
markets. "It Is a pretty long haul from
our section to Omaha." he remarked, "but,
I then, we have a preference for the Omaha
market, a It Is tho most direct one fo
i us. we have to drive our cattle about
i sixty-five miles to reach the railroad. Wc
I are located on the Oregon Short IJne.
Tho railroad haul occupies about six days,
but this trip It took us seven days, which
means considerable to a shipper. Our
stock Is brought direct, from the range.
We aim to drive It from the range to the
hipping; stations In four or five days, or
an average of fifteen miles per day.
"The Green river country, you know,
lies west of tho mountains and Is In a
fairly prosperous condition. Settlers are
coming Into tho country. They are largely
Americans and make the best of citizens.

cattle are shipped there as feeder "
