LINCOLN. April 2. (Special.) Oeorge
W. Berg ha returned from Excelsior
Spring, where ha and hi family spent
th laat few week, and h will now enter
actively upon hla campaign to be the demo
cratic nomine for itovernor of the slate.
Last night Mr. Berge aald:
"I am a candidate for governor, and not
for attorney general. If I am not nomi
nated for governor 1 will not accept a
nomination for any other place on the
ticket. I rhall Issue within a few day
ststement regarding my position and whnt

cratic paper at Bcrlbner, which has been
very much In favor of the candidacy of
A. C. flhsllanberger for governor, haa come
out now for O. M. Hitchcock for inator
and for Berge for attorney general, a
number of democrata are of the belief that
Hitchcock and flhallanberger have made a
tieup and the talk of making Berge at

If future events demonstrate this la true
Mr. Berge will come In for a good share
of the support of the followers of Mr.
Bryan, who are not favorably Impressed
with Shallanberger nor In favor of the
Omaha man for senator. Friends of Berge
are feeling good now because of the mis
takes of his opponents. Inasmuch an they
lalm he could be fought only on the
ground that he haa alwaya been a populist,
they hold now h cannot be objected to on
thla ground because a great number of the
democratic paper a well aa democratic
politicians are willing and anxlou to nomi
nate him for attorney general.
View of Berae' Friends.
A friend of Berge figured out hi chance
In thla manner:
'' view of the campaign made 'by Berge
Mit year he I recognised a an iintl
corporation man. Should the democratic,
convention turn him down the sentiment
throughout the state will be the conven-'
lion has taken a man who can secure the
railroad support. This would be the case
whether It is true or not. Then, should
tlip republican nominate a man who is
icci gn r'd as an nntl-corporatlon candidate,
the tlrinociats would have no chance-at
n!l. On the other hand. If Berge Is nomi
nated V th democrat the railroads will
move l.e.ivcri nnd earth to nominate the
anOidne for the republicans and thus
serine candidate upon whom they can
rely. Te cdluni of corporation taint, con
sequently, would rest upon the republican
card. daf. In that case Berge could be
elected, because the people of Nebraska
1 hi year will not elect a corporation candi
date on any ticket."
A leading democrat who haa always op
puted tiers said last night upon such
argument Petge may be able to bluff the
democratic convention Into nominating him. '

a few other things, has put the democrats
up In the air.
Ilcluiont Car l.lne In l.luie Light.
After years of neglect, Lincoln haa finally
turned Its attention to It original street
car line, which connect the city with the
thriving little village of Belmont. Thla
line consist of a car and two mules, which
aettled In Lincoln at.tbc same time Stanley
Wleks struck the town and R. II. McDon
ald became night clerk at the Llndell.
These mules naturally have become a little
threadbare and th effects of the hand of
time Is plainly visible. It la the condition
of these ancient landmark which ha
called attention to th Belmont line. An
officer of the Humane aoclety ha filed a
complaint against I. L. Lyman, the cor
poration owning the line and th franchise,
charging him with treating the motive
power of hia concern In a cruel manner.
It I charged In the officer complaint
that the aide of the mule are badly worn
and, further, they are not properly fed
and cared for, and great patches of hair
hav been worn off their aide and flue
point stick out all around. Lyman doe
not deny his mule are not fat, but he
claim mule rarely are fat. He claima
also he feds th mutes on th beat th
market afforda In their line and It Is known
to be a fact th mule have never gone
on a strlk or run away, and, ao far a

URAND ISLAND. Neb., April Is.-tSpe-clal.)
At 4 o'clock yesterday morning,
after an all-night session, the city coun
cil, by unanimous vote In each case, over
ruled the remonstrances filed against all
of the saloonkeepers In Grand Island and
granted licenses. In only on caae was
notice of appeal given, that of Henry
Hann, owner, of Hann'a park, who re
fused to make appearance by an attor
ney, and wa Indifferent a to Whether
he secured a license or not. The remon
strances were brought through the efforts
of the Anti-Saloon league of the state,
which sent agents to secure the evidence
some time ago. A weak feature of the
case, admitted to be such by the attorney
for the league, was the testimony of
William Chambers, a Grand Island college
student, who testified that he weighed 145
pounds, continually wore glasses, was bald
on both sides of the forehesd, had a pretty
heavy beard and waa five feet eight Inches
in height, and had been selected out of
seventy-five young men at the Grand Island
college to go about from place to place
In th city, buy a half pint of whisky
and bring In the evidence ns a violation
on the part of the saloon man of the law.
Chambers would b taken anywhere to
be anywhere from 22 to 25 years of age.
At no place did he give any Indication
of the fact that he Was not of age, and
these facts led to a severe attack on the
part of the attorney for the saloon men
upon the methods employed to secure the
evidence necessary to sustain a re
monstrance. On the Sunday opening
charge the evidence wa more substantial,
but appears to have been set aside by the
technicalities plead by attorneys that the
saloons were not sufficiently located, or
It had not been sufficiently shown that
licenses were issued to th Same appli
cants lt year. General opinion seems
to sustain the action of the council, but
not the excesses It Is generally reported
are at times permitted by three or four
of the saloons, and the action of the city
authorities does by no means Indicate that
still more liberties can be taken.

Farmers representing ten central Nebraska
counties met here last week and formed a
state branck of the American Society of
Equity. Resolutions were adopted vigor
ously endorsing the farmers' strike which
wo called by the society's officer In
Indianapolis two months ago.
Th purpose of the association la to con
trol through united action the prices of all
farm products, the general plan being to
withhold products until msrket prices have
advsnced to the minimum standard fixed
by the national officers. The standard for
the strike' called In February fixed the
price of wheat at 11 per bushel, with a
corresponding Increase In the prlc of other
grains and agricultural products. The so
ciety propose to maintain It own system
of crop reporting and to base th price
standards, which are published in th offi
cial organ each month, upon tho crop
figures thus obtained.

work In this section of Nebraska since
February 12 and thus fsr has enrolled 4,000
members. The counties represented In the

The resolutions adopted, besides endors
ing the farmers' strike, contain a demand
for the repeal of the statute requiring

of growing crops, as well as crops already
produced, it being held by the society that
"such future figures are of no value to the
farmers, but only furnish. Information that
assists gamblers and speculators."
The society also advocated the Inaugura
tion, by some Institute or agricultural col
lege, of a course of Instruction as to the
disposal of farm products, conducted "to
the end that the farmer may receive Just
compensation for his labors."

Attended by Tnlre
CHICAGO, April 29-Standing unsteadily
and with great effort before an audience
of 2.(sio persons in Zlnn tabernacle this
afternoon, John Alexander Dowie charged
his traducers. if any were present, to rise
to their feet snd make their accusations
before the whole congregation. The fol
lowers of Voliva, the new leader In Zlon
City's affairs, however, were at that mo
ment attending a rival meeting, set for
the same hour at the Zlon college build
ing, a quarter of a mile distant. There
(S.Ono of the the city's inhabitants wore
gathered, together with the famous choir,
now divested of Its ecclesiastical garb,
and the Zlon hand and orchestra. Those
who listened to the words of Dowie were
for the most part visitors from other
towns, brought In by the hundreds by the
electric csrs and railroad trains. For over
an hour the crowd in the tabernacle watted
for the appearance of the venerable "first
apostle." Immediately In front of the
platform and In the choir loft were prob
ably ISO of the faithful.
Dowie In Feeble Health.
Dowie was borne bodily by two atalwart
negro attendants from an ante room up
the stairs to the platform and deposited
upon his feet before the elaborate prayer
altar. He was attired In an apostolic
robe of white and gold and p.irple. Upon
his head was a turhnn of marvelous pat
tern, embroidered In purple and gold. He
delivered his address and sermon seated
before the altar Only occasionally, when
roused to an unusual pitch of earnestness,
did he rise to his feet. Mrs. Dowie, who
has severed her allegiance with the Voliva
faction, sat In a chair among Dowle's fol
lowers In the congregation. Except for
the presence upon the platform of former
Mayor R. T. Harper. Dowie wss alone.
He announced the hymns and led In
prayer In a voice, the firmness and
strength of which surprised those who
have been In attendance upon him.
Dcnli Alt Charges.
He prefaced his sermon by a spirited
denial of the charges that have been
brought against him in the course of which
he exhibited much of the fiery Impatience

to speedily forget the recent disaster was
the resumption of the Sunday afternoon
concerts In Golden tiata park. These con
certs have always been a Sunday feature
In San Francisco, and In addition to the
excellent program given In the big park,
a volunteer band discoursed music for a
short time in the "tented city" at Jeffer

The city officials were highly elsted today
upon finding the contents of the municipal

In a section of tha city hall that escaped
the fire, and when an expert opened the
doors this morning he found gold, silver
and securities scattered over the floor,
but there was nothing missing. The vsult
contained I5.9i0.000 In coin snd currency,
$300,000 In securities of the German Savings
bank and tl2.0U0.0OU of unsold city bonds.
Shipping Is beginning to resume Its nor

parturea of steamers todsy and several ar
rivals, the latter bringing provisions.
The steamer lmur arrived from Victoria,
B. C, with 600 tons of provisions given
by the people of British Columbia and the
cargo was admitted duty free.
Art Treasures Destroyed.
One loss that csn never be replaced Is t lie
destruction of art galleries and libraries.
Over a million volumes and thousands of
canvasses were burned. The most valuable
paintings In the Mark Hopkins Institute
were cut from the flames and carted to
Oakland as the conflagration approached,
but a large part of Its picture and marble
which were taken Into the yard of th
Flood mansion across the street were
utterly ruined. The most complete destruc
tion of works of art and articles of value
occurred In the private residences whose
owners were forced to flee at some sudden
turn of the fire. Some of these contained
galleries of single pictures unique and un
equalled elsewhere In the world. In the
Crocker residence, for Instance, Millet's
famous painting, "The Man with the Hoe.'
was consumed. In downtown art stores
many valuable canvasses were burned, the
accumulation of years.
Local artists, many of whom had their
studios along Montgomery street, were
burned out at the first onset of the con
flagration, and the studios further uptown
began to go one by one, each with its
treasure of pictures. Hundreds of Keith's
and Charles Rollo Peters' compositions are
lost and the whole colony ot Ban Francisco
artists and connoisseurs are great sufferers.
Even the earthquake caused some damage
and some of the most valusble pieces of
statuary In the city were shattered.
Will send Two Regiments.
WASHINGTON, April 29. Only two regi
ments of troops, comprising In all about
1.350 men, will be sent to San Francisco to
reinforce those there, Instead ot 2.500 men
as originally proposed by General Greely
and sanctioned by the War department. The
troops . to go are the First cavalry from
Fort Clark and Fort Sam Houston, Tex.,
and the infantry regiment from Fort D. A.
Russell, Wyo. A telegram asking that only
the reduced number be aent was received at
the War department today, and ordera to
that effect were promptly Issued. Th re
mainder of the troops originally directed
to proceed to San Francisco have been or
dered not to move until further orders. Th
war office officials decline to discuss th
ressons for General Greely's request, but
the Impression given Is that It Is due to a
wish of the citlxens' committee of San
Francisco not to have the government Incur
the expense due to their transportation, so
that the money may he available for relief
work instead. The transportation charge
for the men probably would have aggre
gated more than Uuo.ouo, which can be spent
in buying rstlons snd other necessities for
the stricken people.
