(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Aug. ITj (Special.)
"Neither populists nor democrats will ever
be satisfied with the ticket named here
last Thursday morning." This is the gen
eral exclamation "of both democrats and
populists In Lincoln and some even go
so far as to say when Bryan comes home
he should try and have Shallenbergor
withdraw and let the committee name
some good man with an aatl-corporatlon
record. That Thompson and Hitchcock
tied up at the laat moment to defeat
Berge there la no doubt among the rank
and file In thla county, and it Is supposed
most of the leaders knew it all the time.
Hitchcock Is blamed by both democrats
and populists. Metcalfe's defense of
Berge on the convention floor haa
strengthened him. While Berge haa gained
friends and admirers among the demo
crats by his magnlflcant conduct after
his defeat, ha haa loat the political friend
ship of a number of the old-time popu
lists. A half-dosen of them bade him
good-bye Thursday night and told him
hereafter they would travel- different
roads in politics, not because Bergo re
fused the populist nomination, but
cause he advised the populists to endorse
Hitchcock became badly frightened when
he realised what a storm the nomination
of Shallenberger raised, and once during
the proceedings he advised getting somo
one to go over to pacify them. Home one
suggested Hall and Metcalfe.
"Tee, they are the men to' go," said
Hitchcock, "they can do It."
"Let Hitchcock go himself," retorted
Metcalfe. "He got us into this trouble.
Let him get us out." i,.
But Hitchcock wouldn't go. Ha pre
ferred to let the democrats get out of
the hole Into which he put them the best
way they could, but he didn't intend to
risk being hissed and Jeered by crossing
the street himself.
Like the Platform.
The proposed platform drawn by a com
mittee appointed fof that purpose to be
submitted to the republican state conven
tion next Wednesday, has taken the wind
out of the sails of the Lincoln "fake re
formers" and their cohorts.
"I have not had time to read the plat
form ' carefully," said Governor Mickey,
"but It looks like It .covers the ground
pretty thoroughly. I can hardly see how
the anti-pass and freight clauses could be
any stronger. I think It is clear cut."
Attorney General Brown said: "The
platform Is good.'. It Is clear cut and to
the point. It covers the ground all right."
"The platform la a good one. It la dig
nified and speaks on .all the Issues, state
and national. I think It la what the con
vention wanta," said Superintendent Mc
Brlen. .
"I have not read the platform carefully,"
said Land Commissioner Eaton, "but from
glancing over it I think It speaks out
plainly on all the issues."
Secretary, of Bute Gelueha eaid: "The
platform Is a dandy. it covers every
thing and I think the invention will adopt
it Just aa It was published.''
' Mr. Mortensen aatd-heaad not yet had
an opportunity to read the platform and
Auditor Searle ls0t.f the city so no ex
pressions could Ve, secured from them.
It Is understood soma of these who have
been objecting to the personnel of the reso
lutions committee, which was appointed by
the executive committee upon authority
given it by the republican state committee,
will Insist that the platform should have
been more specific In regard to the assess
ment of railroad property.
George S. Rouse, candidate for governor,
came In tonight and will remain until after
the convention next Wednesday. Speak
ing of the proposed platform aa prepared
by the committee on resolutions he said:
"The platform looks all right, though I.
mignt suggest some changes."
"What changes would you suggest?" was
"Well, I don't know: you people might
use different language."
He would suggest no definite change.
Speaking of he Dodge delegation Mr.
Rouse said the delegation was for Rouse
and probably Brown would ' have half
of It.
Chance for Governor to Invest.
Governor Mickey has received the follow
ing letter from Clarkson, addressed "Tho
Stato Capitol:" . ,
WH you please let' ma know what the
governor pays for pocket gonhersT T hv
shot one with s shotgun and It waa alls
tun m noies ana torn up rrom the ahot, so
I think It won't he worth shipping it. So
let me know what the governor pays for
them and send me a few shipping tags,
and does the governor want the hides or
the whole gopher?
The governor has always figured the
"tall goes with the hide," but as gophers
are a drug on the market, so far as the
state house is concerned, he Is not now
offering any premiums for this kind of a
pelt, though he has been after a few other
scalps lately.
More Investments Needed.
Treasurer Mortensen has figured up that
since December tl, 1904, the counties of the
state have Issued (450,000 school bonds. The
treasurer was figuring to see if the con
stitution was amended so that the per
manent school fund could be used for in
vestment In school district bonds, whether
the result would remove the pressure. He
concludes the amendment should also give
the treasurer the right to buy good mu
nicipal bonds, as well as school district
Stat Hons Briefs.
General Manager Bishop of the corn con
test to be pulled off in Lincoln next De
cember has received a letter from the sec
retary of agriculture stating that Dick J.
Crosby will represent the department st
the meeting. Mr. Croaby la expected to
remain throughout the session.
Superintendent McBrlen received a let
ter todsy from Superintendent Koch of
Sewsrd county ststlng that all of his
teachers had passed the examination under
the new certification law, or would pass
within the next few days, as those who
had not finished their examinations were
the older teachers. ) who would hsve no
trouble. Mr. Koch said his teachers found
no trouble with the new law.
James D. Phetan. chairman of the San
Francisco relief committee, haa written
Governor Mickey asking him for a state
ment of the money -sent and yet to be
sent by the various committees organised
In Nebraska for the relief of the Cali
fornia sufferers. Governor Mickey desires
the chslrman of the various committees
to notify him at once of the money they
have on band and have sent west.
Superintendent McBrlen addressed ths
teachers' Institutes at Auburn and Weep,
lng Water yesterdsy. He reports good
Institutes, managed by capable educatora.
Much Interest, he said, la being taken In

Labyr Day Proclamailoa.
Governor Mickey has named Monday,
September S, as Labor Day and hss
Issued the following Labor Day pro
clamation: In keeping with the custom and laws
of our stste. I, John H. Mickey, governor
of the state of Nebraska do hereby
designate Monday, September 3, next, as
Labor Day.
It Is desired that the day be generally
observed and that, as far as possible, the
working people throughout our state be
encouraged to tske a respite from their
dally labors and spend the day In rest and
wholesome amusements.
We are all laborers In the world's vine
yard and our success or failure Is deter
mined by the manner In which we perform
our dally tasks. We cannot tell by the
clothes that a man wears what kind of a
r1tlsn he Is; the homespun and the over
all take rank with the finest of broadcloth
when measured by the true test of citizen
ship. Labor la ennobllnr; it Is dignified; and
the debt this country owes to labor can
never be estimated. The excellence of our
nation and of our own commonwealth is
due to labor, backed by brains and capital,
and guided by the hand of providence.
Labor and capital must of necessity dwell
together. Both are needed by each; One
neither "Is good or fair alone." Then,
may they go hand In hand and peaceably,
for the future development of our great
nation depends largely upon the attitude
these two great factors hold toward each
Today we are enjoying an unprecedented
