EARLY UTTERANCE3 RISE AGAINST THEM
Rallroa Politicians Have Don a
Little tho assootheet Work of Their
Long Career la "eoroska
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. Au. . Special.) "The
ell out of the Joumal-News-Brown com
bi nation to the Burlington machine In
11 Lancaster county In order to vet an en
dorsement for Norrls Brown In the county
convention for United Btatee senator,"
aid a Lancaster politician, "has risen up
as a mighty embarrassment for the fake
"By the time' the Burlington machine
landed the old time railroad wire-pullers,
"4 j John McKesson and Joe Burns, for state
senators. Ever since the Journal-News
began to pump hot air reform the two
Lancaster senatorial candidates have been
held up as shining examples of what the
republicans of Lancaster should not tol
erate. , Since the tie-up, kowever, by
which Brown got the Lancaster delega
tion, the two papers have endorsed these
two men. whom they themselves stamped
as railroad tools and agents.
"To epdorse them further or work for
their election stamps the News-Journal
as Insincere In Its alleged work for the
elimination of the railroads from the
control of Nebraska politics. Another
thing the fake reformers are worrying
about Is the fact that McKeuson and
Burns are not Instructed to .vote for the
convention nominee for ' senator, and If
tin Burlington' concludes to change Its
mind and not send Brown to the senate.
Of course It can depend upon McKesson
and Burns voting for some one elie.
"In thu meantime It will be Impossible
for Norrls Brown to come Into Lancaster
county and ask the republicans to vote
' for - reform, as personified by McKesson
"ft and Burns. The columns of the Journal
V would be pulled on him the first rattle
4" oitf.of the box.
at' ' "The "railroads never before played poli
tics so smoothly. If you will take a look
over the counties Instructed for Brown you
will, in many cases, find railroad agents
nominated for the legislature. This Is
the deal through which the Burlington
let Norrls Brown be the convention nomi
nee for senator."

Cltlsens of Lincoln will spend some
money this year for the first time on street
lighting during the state fair. Lights will
be strung along O street out to Twenty
seventh from the postofflce and In several
Instances along the side streets. The rea
son of this Is the homecoming reception
to William J. Bryan, which Is set for
September i. The lights, however, will be
run every night during the state fair.
Lincoln Is looking for the biggest crowd
ever assembled here on the occasion of
the Bryan reception, as thousands of peo
ple from the state and outside of the stated
have signified their Intention of coming.
The railroads are preparing to handle the
Immense crowds by putting on extra
Nebraskans to Sea Girl.

will go to Bea Girt on September I has
been chosen by the umpires with the camp
