(Prom a Btaff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. JVb. 10. (Special Some of
II. onhangers around the mate houae say
they have found a constitutional bar that
w-ill cause the boom of Bute Treasurer
Mortensen for governor to die aborning,
because of a provision of that document
that no executive officer shall be eligible
to hold another state office during the
time for which he has been elected. Mr.
Wort en sen's term as treasurer will not
expire until next January, whereas the
lection comes in November, and the su
preme court haa held in several cases that
euaUflcatlons to eligibility to office must
data back to the date of tba election, rather
than the date of entering upon the office.
This point. If well taken, would also rule
out the gubernatorial ambitions of Lieu
tenant Governor McGilton, who In this
respect Is In the same boat with Mortensen.
Attorney General Norris Brown was In
Omaha todajr and no opinion could be
secured from him. though other lawyers
profess to think Mr. Mortensen Is not
eflglble to be a candidate. Mr. Mortensen
himself believes there is a serious doubt
of his eligibility, but at this time he la
rot going to announce his withdrawal from
the race, and until he has consulted further
with attorneys he will make no statement.
In the meantime the political slate makers
have already gotten busy looking for more
candidate to usher to the front. A letter
was received today from Senator George
BbeHon of Cass county, who Is now in
Mississippi in which the senator said:
"I shall be enlisted wherever and in
whatever capacity It may be necessary to
best serve the people of Nebraska. "
Inasmuch as Mr. Sheldon has frequently
been mentioned as a candidate for gov
ernor and hla letter today was in answer
to an inquiry regarding his candidacy. It
Is taken to mean Mr. Sheldon will run
for the office, providing there is a senti
ment tor him.

( emmeads MeBrlea'a Efforts.
Superintendent McBrien Is making an
effort to Impress his teachers it Is better
to teach few things well rather than teach
a little of many things. Today he received
the following letter of endorsement from
Prof. Hart of the Peru Normal school:
I am delighted beyond measure to note
what you say In lehalf of the five essen
tials crusade. It is a good thing and de
serves pushing siring. My stammering
tongue hss stood for reform in this direc
tion for twenty years. If all other studies
below the ninth grade were dropped from
the school course we should have better
scholars, better thinkers and better In
formed men and women. Furthermore. If
all other studies were dropped from the
second-grade certificate and if the basis of
the second-grade certificate wss changed
from its present basis to a basis of a 95
rr cent average in the five essentials,
would add to good scholarship and clear
thinking, better teaching. There is noth
ing so confusing to the mind as dispersion
of effort. Thoroughness In teaching Is in
comprehensible to one svho has not been
thorough In learning. Thoroughness In
learning 1s unattainable by those on whom
we muFt depend for teachers under present
saprenae Coart Call.

Tha growing sentiment against tha for

He says that the only way to gain the

with a wholesome fear of foreigners. He
adds that the few regiments stationed at
Manila will be entirely Inadequate to cope
with tba trouble in case It comes.
"It is Impossible," ha says, "to deal -with
tha Chines with diplomacy. Tho

as Germany did In 1899, and thus bring
them to their senses."

And it cures dandruff also.
