(From a Staff Correspondent.!
LINCOLN, April 8. (Speclal.)-The utter
absence of political activity at the stste
house these days la In strange contrast
lo the general activity of a few weeks
ago. Immediately after the meeting of the
state committee, at whlrh the time, for
holding the atate convention was act for
August 12, the atate officers who are candi
dates for re-election let up on their atrenu
iiul talks on politics and now everything
is running along as though no convention
was In sight.
' An impression which In some way gained
considerable headway, to the effect that
the state officers who wsnt to succeed them
selves had made a combination with candi
dates for other offices. Is denied by every
one of the state officers. It Is true some
time ago all of the state officers who are
now running held a meeting and agreed
to assist each other, but this agreement,
they are now asserting. In no way affected
a candidate for governor, state treasurer
or United States senator. In fact, some
of these officers have snid no Ironclad
agreement wsa made that they would stand
or fall together, bu the meeting, merely
had for Its object an understanding, where
It would not conflict, each officer was to
throw out a helping hand to hla brother
It la freely discussed In Lincoln, and
really believed, the outcome of the fight
In Iowa over the nomination of a candidate
for governor may have a direct bearing
on the Nebraska fight. There is no ques
tion but what Governor Mickey has become
a possibility as a third term gubernatorial
candidate, even though aome ef his friends
are considering him aa a senatorial possl
bll(ty. The fact that he Uvea south of the
Platte may check any ambition Governor J
Mickey may have In the senatorial dlrec
Ion, but If Governor Cummins Is nominated
for a third term Governor Mickey may re
consider his declaration, given on the spur
of the moment when the direct question
was put to him, of returning- to the tall
uncut when his term Is out. The. fact that
he still continues to take "conversational"
shots at the railroads every once In a
while has led his friends to believe he will
put nothing In the way of any movement
which may tend to continue him In office,
either here or at Washington. In other
words. If "duty calls" the governor won't

In the meantime hare In Lincoln there
Is considerable disappointment among th
friends of Senator Burkett because he i
not helping along In political affairs,
When Burkett defied the old-time ma-

year ago hla followers thought, of course,
that meant ha waa going t o keep on doing
things to the machine, but It aeema such
Is not the case. The so-called machine
has been going along the same aa for
merly and there seems to have been no ef
fort on the part of Burkett to organise
against It and those who whooped it up
for him in the late convention are corro
spcndlngly cast down, for they have no

N r w Point In Land Law. '
KEARNEY, Neb.. April it (Specie lY-A
law suit which has for almost a year been
hard and bitterly fought here was con
eluded In the district court before Judge
If. M. Grimes Saturday. The suit Involved
the title to 100 acres of land located In
Buffalo county, a goodly portion of which
was In alfalfa and the land Was fairly
valuable. The whole question involved was
whether or not a timber claim could be
willed away and If a court could enforce
the terms of the will when at the time of
the entryman's death final proof had not
yet been made of the land. The sutt was
' brought by three sisters and the children
of two other deceased sisters, the plulntlffs
being Ellsa Walker. Amanda Hasaary,
Mary Newman and others against Henry
Khresman, who claimed the land undtr the
will. Judgment waa rendered for the plain
tiffs, who were n-prestnled by Attorney
Muldoon and Shuman of North Platte. The
defendant had purcltused the land from
the only son and brother of the sisters
and the mother of these. The sisters
claimed the five-sixths interest In the land,
which they secured by the Judgment, leuv
ing the defendant the one-sixth Interest
which he purchased of the son.

out six snd permitted the Cooleyltes no
hits and no sco es; In fact, none of the
gentlemen from Kansas got as far as sec
ond. Hits on the part of Omaha were also
scarce. The only players who got more than
one were .Dolan and Perrlng, and they
came unexpectedly. McGlnnla pitched a
good game. The three runs made by Omaha
In the second Inning were made by one
hit and two errors. Again In the eighth the
runs were made on two singles, an error
and a bad throw. The newly made ground
on Pa's infield was largely responsible for
the errors made by Reagan, as the ball
bounded badly.-'New dirt has been put all
over the Infield to level It and a rain Is
required to beat It down.
Jay Andrews got one of the two hits
made off Heusser. It was a corker, and
with one of Omaha's fleet-footed Colts to
run could have easily been a home run,
but Jay Is getting old.

NEW YORK, AprHl 22. Theodore P.

In the canal gone and highly praised the
work of Chief Engineer Stevens. The
effective working force on the canal April
1 numbered 17,631 persons.
"Chief Engineer Stevens," satd the ca
nal chairman, "has carried forward the
preliminary work on the canal and the
railroad with vigor. Many docks and
railroad facilities have been completed
and houses are ready for 1,000 more
employes than are on the istmus.
The work on the Culebra cut has been
carried forward steadily. During March
210,000 cubic yards of material were
moved with an average of ten and
seven-tenths steam shovels working. By
July or August It Is believed forty shovels
will be In position to move 1.000,000 cubic
yards a month. The actual cost, figuring
In contractors' expenses for the work

Mr. Shonts met on the Isthmus, by ap
pointment R. P. Schwerln, vice president
and general manager of the Pacific Mall
Steamship company, for conference rel
tlve to the Interchange of trafflo between
the Panama Railroad and Steamship line
and the Pacific Mall company.
Mr. Schwerln waa accompanied by
other officials of his line, and a demon
stration of the facilities of the Panama
jallroad for handling traffic resulted In
the settlement of all differences and an
agreement to work in harmony In the
Interest or the entire route. Mr. Shonts
said there had been no congestion of
freight on the Isthmus since December.

A lighted cigar falling from the fingers

would be well for the War department to

FAME OF SOLON BORGLUM
New York Paper Describes His Kqnee-
trlan Statne of General Gordon
This item of an "Omaha boy" Is clipped
from a New York paper:
Solon Boralum has ertmpleted the model
for a statue, heroic slae, of the late Gen
eral Gordon, which Is to occupy a conspic
uous site near the t-spltoi in Atlanta, ta.
It shows the general mounted and watch
ing a review. It was the wish at those,
who provided the money for the statue to
avoid the suggestion of war save aa it
might be denoted in the wearing ot tne
confederate uniform which the general
never nut on attain after Lee's surrender.
Gordon sits firmly, easily, the reins In his
left hand, his hat In his right and his
eyes looking off watchfully. The horse Is
well planted on his reet, out animation is
denoted In the awltch of the tall, the toss
of the head, the champing of the bit and
widening of the noBtril. The whole work
has character, firm modeling, solid lines
and simplicity and Is to be placed on a
pedestal wnicn, annougn riftjoima son
handsome, will be hut a little shove the
ground. Most equestrian statues are
perched on the top of two-story chimneys,
where one dreads lest the horse make a
step In either direction and come to the
earth In pieces. An equestrian work of
different character Is In process of com
pletion by Mr. Horglum anil is to represent
!'Bucky" O'Neill of the Bough Riders. 1 It
will be placed at Prescott, Aril. In this
the horse Is galloping and the figure is
full of the earnestness of fight, yet- It Is
not a flamboyant expression of war so
much as it Is a portrait. The soldier no
longer goes Into battle in full regimentals,
with all the buttons and gold and lace
his kit affords., but rough and tough, often
ragged, and stripped to his work.
