HITCHCOCK LANDS MAJORITY FOR FORMER
Lysis' I. Abbott Bites a a F.nrioraement
f Mis 'andldscy fnr -lb
domination for Attorney
The caucus of the delegation to the demo
cratic state convention at the Taxton hotel
last night did all that was predicted for It,
and a few other things. It split between
Fhsllonberger and Thompson for governor,
selected the future state committeemen
from Douglns county and launched with
unanimous endorsement the boom of Lysle
I. Abbott for attorney general. Ied by
Gilbert M. Hitchcock and Bill Canada of
the I'nlon Pacific, a secret ballot was taken
for the endorsement of a gubernatorial
nominee, and In the Interests of Shallen
berger. That gentleman received thirty
fire of the fifty-three votes In the caucus,
Thompson seventeen snd W. 8. Poppletqn,
who Is not a candidate, one.
Perceiving In advance that Hitchcock and
PHI Canada and the Bhallenberger sym
pathisers hsd the upper hand. Mayor Dahl
man and his minority faction present en
deavored to block the organlxatlon and
preparation of a program last night. That
Is, lieutenants of the executive did the talk
ing, and the latter contented himself with
voting against the motion to go ahead and
do business. The mayor made no effort to
capture the chairmanship of the delegation,
the honor going to C. B. Montgomery by
acclamation and with the mayor's expressed
Da hi man Lands Here.
In the choice for committeemen to be
recommended to the state convention the
Dahlman faction fared better, scoring at
least two out of the three men chosen.
The three were George Rogers, II. 8. Daniel
and H. B. Fleharty of South Omaha. Other
candidates for the committeeship voted on
were A. L. Anderson, Sam J. RothwHI.
Councilman Alma Jackson, LoulifJ. Plattl,
William Russell. Kd Howell and C. Q.
Cunningham. Rogers was elected on the
first ballot, Daniel on the. second and
Fleharty by acclamation, after Ed Howell
had withdrawn and said a place should be
given to South Omaha.
Ed P. Berryman, who acted as secretary
of the caucus, was recommended for secre
tary of the convention, and Gilbert M.
Hitchcock and W. S. Shoemaker for the
Abbott's Name a Surprise. " '
The endorsement of the Abbott candi
dacy for" attorney general was made at
the sacrifice of a railroad commissioner
from Douglas county. No sounding brass
had announced Abbott's ambitions and he
presided ' during the greater part of the
evening as chairman without many of the
delegates knowing anything about it. Then
Ed Walsh suddenly let loose the bolt and
found the caucus In art exceedingly Vccep
tlve mood. 80 was Mr. Abbott, who
smiled and voiced .his thanks. Then Walsh
started "In to have Dr. Ira W. Porter en
dorsed for railroad commissioner. He wus
followed by W. S. Shoemaker with a plea
for B. H. Hayden for the same Job. Bill
Canada bucked the endorsement of either
man and Ed P. Smith said that Douglas
county was asking for enough In the Ab
bott candidacy. There the matter' rested
and adjournment soon followed to 1 o'clock
convention day at the Llndell hotel, Lin
coln. .," , Several Delearates Shy. J ' '
There 'Were forty-eight delegates 'present
and five proxies out of a total, of alxtyrslX.
Objection was made by the Hitchcock, peo
ple, to admitting proxies and the discussion
brought out the Interesting question If any
proxies are allowed from delegates chown
at .primaries. Chairman Abbott thought
hot. Mayor Dahlman declared that dele
gates In' the convention 'certainly "were en
titled to be renresented If thev-eOAM nut
he present themselves. Just what the legal

The mayor made a strong talk for Thomp
son when his faction found It was useless
to oppose a ballot on the question. lie
said the contest for the gubernatorial nomi
nation was between Thompson and Berge
and that to carry Dougln county by a big
majority Thompson , inst b . nominated.
Bhallenberger, he asserted, would not get
within gunshot of the nomination. He said
that If Douglas county was divided on the
proposition "Berge would most X"e'y walk
away with the prize.
Ed P. Smith took the opposite end and
made a good-, strong talk for Bhallcnberyf r,
saying tlie delegation was bound to be
