LINCOLN, Am, 4.-(Sprclal.-The talk j
of the railroad politicians In and out of
Lincoln I to the effect that there will be i
rm nomination of United State senator In !
he republican state convention, nor any i
U democratic slate convention, either, '
for that matter. The pins are all set,
O they say, to head off Instructions In ;
enough counties to leave a working ma- ,
jorlty that will vote the senntorshlp eff !
the call altogether. Bnld one of them I
yesterday, who usually talks by the card: I
"We have the senatorial candidates whore
,W'Wint them now and there will be nn
domination at all. The orders have onf
out to that effect, and they will be car-
rled, out If it Is possible to carry them
out, and we have not lost our grip to that
xtent yet. The first stroke Is to be j
played In the democratic convention. The j
democrats have not put the srnatorship j
In their convention call,'' although a lot of i
them will try to get the convention to I
nominate anyway on the ground thilt it Is j
la line with democratic doctrine and has j
been promised repeatedly In platforms do- j
daring for electing senators tiy the poo-
pie, but nothing will be done. After we ;
have headed off the democrats from put- '
ting up a senatorial nomination It will be j
easier for us to fix the republican convention-,
because the argument that it I
must be done to meet the democrats will 1
"Yes, we expect the Influence of Burkett
and his friends to he thrown for a nomina
tion, because Burkett was nominated in
the convention two years ago and confirm
ation of the precedent would be desir
able from his standpoint, with a view to
repeating at the end of his term. But
,he Burkett crowd will not show much of
hand in this convention the chances are
i won't be here himself, and he Is the
only one who reallxes the Importance of It
Vest Pocket Delegations Multiply.
It la said that the vest-pocket delega
tions are part of the railroad program to
nldetrack the senatorial nomination, and I
the fact thnt Norrls Brown has himself
aet the example by hiding away his list
of Buffalo county delegates until the eve i
of the convention gives nn excuse for pur- '
suing the same tactics on the other side, j
Brown's home county held Its convention
way back in June and authorized 'him to
name the delegates, but he has "not yet
done so. The same condition now prevails
In Cass county, which turned the Job over
to Hheldon; Lancaster county, which Is
Waiting for Winnett; Webster county,
which belongs to Qulusha; Nemahn county,
Which Is turned over to Good, with proba-
ly some more coming. The organ of the
ke reformers here at the outset of the
campaign viciously assailed the practice
of vest-pocket delegations, but it has not
ty'i. i 2j of vest-pocket
fc I 1 vf , ad a word to
Jr In hls conn
say on this question of late.
ectlon it Is notable that the
Journal-N,ews spokesman has become on
ardent advocate of the direct primary.
Commenting on the primary held in Fron
tier county it would have it understood
that the crowd it represents wus for di
rect primaries all the time.
"Did you see. that article In the Journal
about the direct primary?" asked a state
house employe. "They have tHVir" nerve
to pose as the champions of the dlro t
primary when everyone knows that a direct-primary
proposition was presented to
the state committee by Victor Rosewatcr
with the very purpose of getting ah out
right expression on a candidate for sen
ator from all the republicans throughout
the state and was voted down by a com
bination among the committeemen, in
cluding not only those known to be und i
railroad Influence, but also several who
are In with the fake reform crowd. If
these people were, sincere for a direr:
primary ths state committee would have1
ydopted the plan proposed and Instead of
Caving primaries in only three or foul'
counties they would have been held in
very county in the state."
Pre-Con ventlon Platform Committee.
Thera has been considerable debate pro
and con over the appointment of the res
olutions committee by the executive com
mittee of the state committee. So fat
only one member of the committee, Eii.
Burnham of Norfolk, is sure of being a
delegate In the convention, and another
member, Representative Perry of Furna-i,
has been left off his delegation, so that
ha la sure not to be a delegate. Chai.
man. Warner, In an Interview the other
day, said he thought the plan of ap
pointing a resolutions committee to drai't
a platform ahead of the convention wus
good, but that the requirement for nam
ing them thirty days ahead of the con
vention assumed too great a prevision
on the part of the appointing power and
that if appointments were made a week
or ten days ahead of the convention,
hen the membership of the different del
egations would be fairly well known, th?
effect would be much better. Some of the
extreme radicals talk of relectlng the
names selected by the state commltto; a-

(nrether.-for the reason that they were
so Selected, but the general disposition IS
to wait F--d see what kind of a platform
Is devised before saying whether It should
be accepted or turned down.
Kitrna nllh Amendment Notices.
Though he believes the legality of the
publication of 'he proposed railroad anifnd
ment to the constitution will not lie ques
tioned If It Is published for thirteen con
secutive weeks prior to the election, Sec
rf tiry of'State Gnlusha t xlay telegraphed
a. id telephoned to each of the papers to
which he had sent the amendment, to pub
lish an extra edition of the paper to In
ru:e the legality nf the publication. Late
this evening he had heurd from nearly all
of his wires and extra editions will be
published. This will mike the necessary
three calendar montr.s.
The other st ite officers. Treasurer Mor
tensen, Land Commissioner Eaton, Super
intendent Mcfctrlen and Auditor Searle also
sent the following telegram, which Is like
the one sent by Mr. Galusha:
1'ubllsh special eriltlnn of this week's
paper or supplement containing constltu
tlonul amendment and Issue It not later
tnan today or Sunday to Insure validity,
As an excuse for getting Into the game
these officers said they sent the messages
because they believed It would Impress the
country papers with tlie seriousness of the
situation and would make them doubly
anxious to get the extra paper printed.,
Who Is to r-ay the cist of the extra pub
lications has not been figured out as yet.
The extra edition Idea was suggested by
Deputy Attorney General Thompson, who
said it would remove all doubt as to the
validity of the publication of the notices.
Attorney Genenl Brown Is out campaign
Ins and in his absence the legal depart
ment would hazard no opinion as to the
law In the matter.
Mr. Galusha said he has been ready to
send out the copy of the notices for mote
than two weeks, but he hnd written to a
number of the county chairmen, asking
what paper should receive the contract.
He has heard from only a few of them, he
said, and this morning received a letter
from one who Is a county attorney, saying
he would discuss the papers when he came
down to the state convention.
Papers from Franklin, Oage, Dodge,
Douglas and Lancaster counties containing
the amendment notices were received at
the office of the secretary of state today.
Jlncli try for Little Weil.
In their efforts to array the state against
Oniiha the Lincoln papers are still abusing
the members of the State Board of . Equali
zation who voted against lowering the as
sessment of Lancaster county merchandise
5 per cent. Had the members of the state
board acceded to the demands of the fake
reformers the merchants of Lancaster
county would have been saved the enor
mous sum of $i4.23. This would have saved
each of the merchants of the county about
50 cents and may be not that much. Be
cause the state board refused to lop off the
enormous sum of IW4.23 from the state and
school taxes to be paid by the Lancaster
merchants, the fake reformers assert the
Lancaster board next year will do Its own
Lancaster county merchandise was as
sessed at 1754.978.20. County Assessor Mil
ler asked the Slate Board of Equalisation
to cut this down i per cent. This would
have made a reduction In the assessment of
$37,748.81. The total state and school levy
Is 7 mills, which would make the taxes
over which the fake reformers are throw
ing fits $2ii4.23.
"The Lincoln papers doubtless have never
figured what the 6 per cent reduction would
save the merchants," said a member of the
board, "but Jumped Into abusing the board
as though we had robbed the county of
thousands. It should be borne In mind also
that the other counties of the state con
tribute to the support of Lancaster county
over J2,000,0n0 every blennlum, or almost
two-thirds of the total appropriations of
the entire state. Lancaster county fur
nished no evidence that Its merchants were
over-assessed., but on the contrary the
county assessor said they were under-assessed.
Afsessor Miller and J. E. Miller
also failed to substantiate their charge that
Omaha merchandise was under-assessed.
We listened to the evidence and were sat
isfied. I would like the people of the state
to know, however, that all this talk Is over
the enormous sum of It Is about the
-Uiber of the Lincoln fake sheets."

TELEPHONE LI 3 EM AS 19 KILLED
E. Truesriale and Compactions Strnck
by Trnln Sear Grand Island.
GRAND ISLAND, Neb., Aug. 4.-(Specia1
Telegram.) E. Tuesdale, a telephone line
man, with two assistants, Julius Jones and
Rewell Perrlne, were run Into by a Union
Pacific freight train late last night nnd
Tuesdale was instantly killed, while Jones
and Perrlne Jumped In time to save them
selves, one landing on one side of the train
and the other on the opposite.
They had been out In the country to put
In a farmer's 'phone. To complete the
work they labored after the supper hour
and at 11 o'clock were returning to the
city. As they approached a crossing from
the west, and were yet driving somewhat
parallel to the track, they saw train No.
5, from the east. Just pulling out of Grand
Island. They doubted whether they could
cross ahead of the oncoming train, and
their attention seems to have been cen
tered wholly upon the approaching head
light. The driver was of the opinion he
could cross and hurried the horse. The
horse shied as he was approaching the
middle of three tracks. The men looked
up. A freight train from the west was
upon them. Jones and Perrlne Jumped.
One of them landed on the south and the
other on the north side of the train, which
came from the west. They heard the ve
hicle struck. When the freight had passed
they looked for their companion. They
found his remains horribly mangled, a
distance of about fifty feet away. Further
on they saw the remains of the horse.
Train No. 6 was then Immediately upon
them. It brushed the remains of the
wagon from the track and went on.
The two men Immediately went' to the
nearest telephone and police officers and
the coroner were soon at. the scene-. The
undertaker's ambulance was sent for and
Undertaker Sondermann, John Allan, Jones
and the driver, Herbert Wescott, started
for the city with the remains. While driv
ing along, the wagon struck an em
bankment, and Jones, who escaped the rail
road train, was somewhat bruised, and
Undertaker Sondermann had his wrist
sprained. A runaway was, however, pre
vented. Truesdale was 34 years of age. He leaves
a wife and a 6-year-old daughter.
Tho coroner's Jury was In session all this
afternoon and this evening went over the
ground at the scene of the accident, ac
companied by the crew of the freight train.
It reconvened at the coroner's office after
returning from the western part of the
YORK EXPECTS MONSTER CROWD
Low Rates and Special Trains Will
Brine Thousands to Hear Tillman.
TORK, Neb., Aug. . 4.-(Speclal.)-The
Democratic county convention has been
called for next Saturday morning, and
In the call all Democrats are urged to be
present to hear Senator Tillman, . who
speaks In the afternoon at York Chautau
qua. This year the democrats of York
county, although few In number, propose
to go It alone and not hold Joint conven
tion with the populists.
The railroads have announced that dur
ing Chautauqua week special rates will
be made to York commencing August 10.
On "Pitchfork" Tillman day, August 11,
a special excursion will be run from Lin
coln through Mllford, Seward and Utlca.
The Lincoln business men are being In
terested In the York Chautauqua and on
"Tillman" day the management believe
25,000 people will attend.
There was a large attendance on Friday
evening at the opening of the tabernacle,
which has been built for the use of the
Chautauqua. The musical program was
a rich treat. Congressman E. A. Hin-
shaw 'delivered an address that was
highly appreciated. Quite a sum of
money was raited to finish paying for the
finest and largest outdoor tabernacle in
the state. The tabernacle Is of graceful
structure, having excellent accoustic prop
erties, and seats 3,000 people. The style
of architecture is similar to that of the
Mormon tabernacle at Salt Lake.
