LINCOLN, March . (Special Telegram.)
Under the name of democratH over X
peraona (atliered around the banquet table
at the Lincoln hotel tonight at a love
feaat In a mighty effort to resuscitate the
old party and rt It In ahape for another
go against the biixxmw. In the crowd were
Bryan and anti-Bryan democrats and the
laat of the populists, George W. Berge,
the anti-pass candidate for governor In
The crowd began to reach IJncoln early
In the day and by night it had reached con
alderabln proportions and was sufficiently
enthusiastic to nttrart attention. Omaha
sent down at leant a dosen of the faithful.
Including James Dahlman, who In an as
pirant for the democratic nomination for
mayor, and Dan Custer, the old warhorsr
who admitted the party had gone to thi
bow-wows and who tried (o get a sreclu.
train home before the speaking.
Before the banquet bt-gan members of the
state committee met and diecuiwcd the beet
way to secure an organisation and the best
way to get the remnanta of the party In
fighting shape. While no formal action
was taken except to allow the executive
committee to call the state convention
when It got ready for It, It was the senti
ment of the majority that the convention
should be called some time In July or
August. The question of holding a primary
and of endorsing a candidate for senator
was not dlHcusned.
Receptive I'andldatea for Governor.
On the lint of speakers were several pros
pective candidates for governor, I. E. Mc
Klllip. A. C. Bhallrnberger. W. H. Thomp
son and O. W. Berge. .None of these made
formal, of course, but each
left no doubt In the mlndn of the crowd
that be would be willing to make the sacri
fice should the nomination be offered him.
It was late when P. l Hall of Lincoln,
the toantmaster, took charge of nlTuIr
and called on the spcakrrn. From a demo
cratic standpoint these were Ideal. Even
ths populists could not object. It was the
same old talk. AH the speeches seeni'tl
to run out the same funnel. The speakers
were opposed to existing conditions; they
objected to corporation rule; they
to railroads dominating politics of the na
tion or state; they predicted failure on
the part of President Roonvelt in his
fight for tho government regulation of
railroads; they favored a 2-cent railroad
rate; they favored a direct primary for
the nomination of officers.
Klves Bryan All the Credit.
H. 11. Hanks devoted the time allotted
to him In preaching of Bryan and he made
the statement all the things which are
being done by Roosevelt, and Folk! and
LaFollette and the things being said by
these men and others of their kind, were
the-things for which Mr. Bryan and the
democratic party had been working for
years. In fact, credit for all things good
was given tho democratic lender and the
democratic party.
Governor Thomas of Colorado, J. B.
Weaver of Iowa and Mr. Shallenbergor
confined themselves almost exclusively to
latlona: nniilrs. The speakers and their
subjects were as fallows:

larger than mustard soeds.
