Kept Every Pledge It Made and
Made a Ciena Fight K. Roaewater
trnnger Over the State In
i Detent Tnaa Even Before
(From a Btaff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. Aug. 14. (Special.) A large
number of the oeiegatea to the republican
state convention were unable to get out of
Lincoln until this afternoon and It was
a sorry looking, bedraggled bunch, us
nearly all of them failed to get any sleep
during the laat two nights.
Bide talks with the delegates disclosed
various opinions of the , ticket and the
outcome and varloua explanations of how
It happened, everyone agreed, however,
that the Douglas delegation waa the best
and cleanest set of men the big town ever
sent to a, state convention. One delegate
who had worked along with the Douglas
delegation expressed the sentiment of hun
dreds when he said:
"Douglas county kept every pledge It
made. Not once did it fall to do just what
the steering committee bad agreed that it
should do. The delegation waa composed
of a bunch of the beat workers that ever
came to the state convention and It was a
pleasure to work with them. They inspired
the respect of their, opponents for the able
and clean fight that was made for their
candldatea. H. H. Baldrlge. Robert Cowell
and Victor Roaewater made more friends
for Omaha and for themselves yesterday
than any three men In the atate conven
tion. These men, with the Douglas delega
tion, have won the confidence of the stats
and' Douglas county stands closer to the
atate today than It ever did before."
Just how Representative Caldwell feels
about the double cross he received Is not
known from Caldwell personally, but
frienda of his believe the Clay county man
went home In a bad humor, as he bad a
right to do. Inasmuch aa he was led to
believe the nomination for railroad com
missioner was to be his on a silver platter.
H. J. Wlnnett of Lancaster count..-,
nominee for railroad commissioner, is
glad Robert Cowell ia on the ticket with
him. Inasmuch as Judge Froat expected
to run rampant with the .tate, he and
Dr. Wlnnett had quite a tilt over the dis
tribution of the Lancaster vote for rail
road commissioner. Wlnnett himself,
sent word to the Douglas delegation tnat
he would caat the Lancaster solid dele
gation for an' Omaha man for commia
sloner If any one would take the place.
Thla morning Wlnnett said:
Wlnnett Makes Explanation.
"I did not know Omaha had a candidate
when the first ballot was taken. On the
second ballot I was told 1 the delegation
had to make good on pledges and would
not vote for the Douglas man. We got
seventeen of the delegatea, however, and
had I known Omaha had a candidate on
the first ballot he certainly would huve
received the solid vote. I feel very
kindly toward Douglas county for what
It did for me."
Deputy Attorney General W. T. Thomp
son expressed himself as follows this morn
ing: "I certainly feel under obligations to
Mr. Roaewater and Douglas county. )f
the men who made the fight here for Mr.
Roaewater ever want help of any kind. I
will respond to any . call."
Secretary of State Oalusha is taking h!
defeat philosophically and has llttlo to
say. Inasmuch, howeyer, as, Oalusha s
delegation, broke to.Opwn -wrth six vote
at the critical time., they believe "tho
Webster county man was, badly nsoii by
the victors In the convention. It whs
Douglas county that put the fixing to Mr.
Oalusha. It was also Douglas county that
carried Mr. Brian through for treasurer
over the opposition of Kyd and Goo'L each
of whom relied on the Brown boosters
to make good' on their promise to land
them. A delegation of Boone county men.
Including Mr. Brian, requested greetings
be sent to Omaha and whatever Omaha
wants Boone county will help fand it.
The most talked of incident of the con
vention waa the speech by Mr. Roaewater.
The fp.ke reform sheets here had tried to
make the people believe everything evil
of the Douglas county candidate, but to
day all over Linooln nothing but ex
preaslona of commendation are heard for
him. On the other hand the failure of Mr.
Brown to even mention the Douglas county
candidate, ia commented on. Judge Eng
land who has been one of the great Brown
"Mr. Rose water' s speech waa a gem. It
waa one of the greatest speeches I ever
heard In an'y convention. Never before
have the hearts of the people of Nebraska
beat so kindly for him. He Is without
doubt the best qualified man in Nebraska."
Bright Ontlook for Fnlr.
Present indication are that., thla year's
state f ulr will be a record breaker. The
applications already received for space In
the varloua departments exceed last year
to a surprising degree. William R. Mellor,
secretary of the state fair board, said
Thursday morning that many applicants
for space cannot be accommodated. The
animal department this year will be an
Interesting exhibition. For the draft
horses, four barns with 166' stall each are
provided, while there are 1 stalls for
speed horses. Five hundred and fifteen ap
plications for( cattle stalls have been re
ceived, with only 450 stalls available at
the present time. The swine pens were all
assigned In March and SO applications re
ceived since that time. Twenty-six counties
at least will be repreaented with collective
exhibits In the agricultural 'hall aa against
twenty-one last year. This year's exhibit
f farm machinery and vehicles will sur
pass any previous ' year. An annex for
the machinery department has been pro
vided. In the speed department .there will
be 101 harness horsea entered, last season's
number being fifty-three.
Secretary Mellor said the interest In thlp
year's fair has been in keeping with the
general proaperlty of the state and Is a
good Index of general conditions.
