(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, July It (Special.) Chairman
Walter Roberta and Secretary Beman Fox
have Issued the call for the republican
unty convention to be held In the BIJou,
.icster July U at 1 o'clock In the afternoon.
lie convention, besides nominating candi
dates for the legislature, a police Judge
and a county attorney, will name thirty
four delegates to the state convention and
fifty-six delegates to the congressional con
vention. A eurprl a good many people In Lin.
coin Is the fact tbe cull contains the nom
ination of a police Judge. This Is due to
the supreme court decision some months
ago In the Gordon case from Omaha, where
It was 'held the police Judge should be
elected W the fall election.- Judge Cosgrave
was elected at the spring election and his
term Is not out until next spring. It ts
likely he will have no .apposition except
what tittle fight the democrats may put up.
The fight preliminary to the convention
has already started and will be a warm
one before It is concluded. Attorney Gen
eral Norrls Brown Is working night and
day to secure an endorsement for himself
for I'nlted Statea senator and to make his
IMMltlon stronger he has allied himself
'with Dr. Wlnnett as a candidate for rail
road commissioner. Should this combina
tion be successful, It would mean also a
majority of the delegation for Sheldon for
governor, while Luther P, Ludden would be
refused an endorsement for lieutenant gov
ernor. Judge Lincoln Frost of the district bench
is managing this combination and a new
phase was put on the situation yesterday
by the report that Judge Frost wa trying
to procure control of the county convention
also In order to name the delegation to the
Judge Holmes, a colleague of Judge Frost
on the bench. Is an avowed candidate for
congress and fully expects this delegation,
consequently this effort Of Judge Frost
will naturally cause 111 feeling between
these two. In the meantime It Is reported
Congressman Pollard Intends to Invade
Lancaster county and contest for a portion
of the delegation.
. Friends. of Mr. Ludden are making a vig
orous canvass for him and believe they
will control the convention. Should he se
cure the delegation It Is unlikely that any
one else will be endorsed. Should Wlnnett
win It would prwbably mean endorsements
for Brown and Bheldon, too.
It was reported yesterday that Dr. Wln
nett would shortly withdraw. When asked
concerning the report Dr. Wlnnett said:
"That Is the first I have heard that I
am to withdraw and (he first I have heard
that I am to Issue a statement giving my
reasons' for withdrawing,. I will Just say
to you If I do withdraw from the race
I will announce It myself."
In the first round ' friends of Dr. Ludden
scored, first. In the date of the. convention,
nttfeh the' Brown-Sheldon-Wlnnett combi
nation wantld fixed sometime In August;
second, In the fact that the temporary
chairman will be selected by an executive
committee appointed by the chairman of
the county committee.
. HeaJ-uryrt 'nrctrfe a Shock.
The suicide' of A.' H. Hennlngs, former
city treasure of Omaha, cant as a dis-1

house and to those who knew and re
"He was one of the most optimistic men
I ever knw," said II. C. Llndsay.-clerk of
the supreme court, "and I never knew
him to he morose or to have the blues.
He wasslways cheerful. I can hardTy be

Secretary Allen of the state committee
was one cf !the first to receive the news
"Mr. Hennlnga was treasurer of the
state committee and tm a popular and
efficient officer. He made frlenda when
ever he met people, and I can aee no rea
jon why a mih of his disposition would
commit suicide. I thought much of Mr.
Hennlnga and deeply regret his rash act."

excursion to Auburn lnXconJunctton wllh
the Commercial club trade boosters. A

company and paid by the excursionists, felt
that the Investment was a wise one.
"It has become plainly .evident that
there Is not a metropolitan city In this part
of the country which sends out such an
enthusiastic crowd of business boosters as
Omaha does," remarked C. B. Swan, a
leading merchant of Auburn. "The effect
of yesterday's outing was far-reaching."
