Jeesen Oat for Conarreaa.
It waa reported In Lincoln today that
Judge Paul Jeesen of Otoe county had
announced his candidacy for the republican,
nomination for congress In opposition to
Ernest M. Pollard, present congressman
and candidate for re-election. "According to
friends rf Judge Jessen In Lincoln, he waa
Induced to announce hlmaelf by the sud
den turn of affairs since the publication
of the stories that Congressman Pollard
had drawn salary for a period of time
previous to his election aa a member of
congress. There la no question but whst
number of the Pollard delegatea In Lan
caster county will refuse to stand by
the Instructions of the Lancaster county
convention, but will either get off of the
delegation or vote for someone else for
he congressional convention. Some of
Pollnrd a friends. Including the Journal,
are asserting ha waa Justified In taking
me salary because such a precedent had
been established. His opponents and other.
however, criticise Mr. Pollard severely and
ay that aa he was elected as a reformer,
he should have been the man to have
smashed such precedents.
Berg Followers Jaallaat.
Berg democrats In Lincoln are rejoicing
today over the outcome of the Platte county
convention yesterday, which endorsed Mr.
Berge for the democratic nomination for
governor. On the other hand, those who
oppose Berge merely say It was a slap at
Edgar Howard and the convention cared
nothing about Berge. Berge now Intends to
put up a fight In Otoe county, snd if that
Instructs for him his friends assert he will
get the nomination without any more op
position. One of the principal backers of
the Berge candidacy said last night:
"A few of the so-called leadera of the
democratic party are fighting Berge on the
ground thai he Is a populist. The fight In
Platte county forever puts an end to that
opposition. Platte county Is the hotbed of
democracy In this state. The remit of
that convention practically ends the con
test and Mr. Berge will be the nominee of
the democratic party.
"Hitchcock will try bis best to name
Bhallengerger, but he will fall, and with his
failure there his chance to be Vnlted States
senator, even if the democrats control the
legislature, is gone glimmering. In fact,
there Is no opposition to Berge except by
a half doeen would-be leaders who can do
nothing with the uprising among the rank
and file of the democratic party for Berge."
Pallmaa Assessment.
The attention of the next legislature will
be directed to the law which governs the
assessment of the Pullman Car company In
Nebraska. Attorney General Brown, upon
the request of Tom Benton, the Pullman
representative here, told the Board of As
sessment, when that body wanted to In
crease the assessment, that under the law
It would be Impossible for It to so do.
Every member of the board expressed a
desire to Increase the assessment of the
Pullman company and Treasurer Mortonren
and Governor Mickey wanted to do so even
after Mr. Brown had told them the law did
not permit It.
Mr. Mortensen and the governor wanted to
double the assessment of the Pullman com
pany by adding the franchise value Instead
of Just assessing It upon the dead physical
property. Both held that the' railroads were
assessed that way and that it was legal to
assess the franchise of the Pullman com
pany. Tom Benton at once sent for the
attorney general and Mr. Brown sided with
the Pullman representative.
That Tom Benton, the Pullman lobbyist,
then became the ardent supporter of Mr.
Brown for Vnlted States senator and as
sisted him In getting Lancaster county, ac
cording to Mr. Brown'a friends. Is of no
In the meantime Mr. Mortensen. though
still believing the board has a right to as
sess the Pullman company on Its franchise
value, believes If the law Is not right the
next legislature should amend It so the
Pullman company could be assessed at
something near the value of Its property In
First Car oa laterarbaa.
The Interurban company this morning
received Its first car and It was formally
received Into the city by General Manager
Hurd, who smashed a bottle of good rich
win over Its side after which H. H. Wil
son, attorney for the company, made a
short address In which he told of the diffi
culties which the company had overcome.
The car will be tested and will be used
In a few days to carry passenger to the
Bethany assembly.

report condemning railroads and corpora
tions, also recommending an antl-paaa bill

Why Pabst Malt Is
The Perfect Malt
PABST has proven by scientific
experiment nd aixtv vrar of
practical brewing that eight days are
required in making malt to bring shout
those necessary chemical changes by
which the perfect preligested malt is
produced. In many breweries the old
four-day process is still used and the malt
is of forced, unnatural development. It
lacks in nutrition and is in all ways inferior,
much of the vital nutriment of the grain being
lost. Beer brewed from Fahst eight-day malt
retains in predigested form all of the nutritious
life-giving elements of the grain.
It is the exclusive Pabst method of brew
ing with Pabst eight-day malt that makes
Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer superior as a
nourishing tonic and a delicious beverage.
When ordering Beer, call for
Pabst. Blue. Ribbon
