and allowed claim and began th work of

th exact figures cannot be ascertained
til all claims are presented. Th aur
i will be expended in Improvement on
ground. Just what this will be can-
' not be determined until later, There la
talk of a new fisheries building, which la
onceded to be badly needed, additional
amphitheater at th race course, a theater
building for entertainments, and moat of
All toilet rooms and additional sewerage
for th ground.
Th only complaint heard Is th meager
Seas of th speed program. While there
Is no complaint about the sis of th racing
, parses, which were incressed last winter
by action of Che board, th race did
not fill and th contests were poor. It was
Imply a lack of horses. It is believed to
be due to some lack of diligence on th
part of th fair and the great competition
of other race meetings. Secretary W. R.
Mellor has don much for the speed depart
ment and the board ha seconded his
efforts, but th horse were not here. Mr.
Mellor say th greatest obstacle is th
Minnesota fairy which comes In competi
tion with th Nebraska fair. In Minnesota
126,000 Is offered tn purses In the speed de
partment. There r so many racing meet
ing In th fall that th competition for
fast horses makes It almost Impossible to
get them In Nebraska.'
Th hop la expressed that next year a
better showing will be made by the speed
department. Thl department for th first
time In . the history of the fair mad a
profit. The total receipts were $10,048, and
th amount paid out for' races. Including
$83 for base ball, was $S,068, leaving a
balance of 11,990 In th treasury of the
peed department. .

ment for bids, but was rather a little pri
vate purchase decided upon after Stat

for themselves. On of the firms that has
never been able to make a sale to the

Though efforts exerted for a year or
two past to get Ernest Bush out of the
state penitentiary have proved unavail
ing, hla frlenda have not despaired. A
delegation of them called on Governor
Mickey this afternoon to press anew the
application for clemency. In the party
were L. C Burr, who mad a fruitless
attempt to have Bush's life sentence sot
aside by th supreme court; Mrs. John
Wiseman and several other Lincoln
women who have taken an Interest In
the prisoner. Governor Mickey gave them
no promises. ' '
Bush wa aent up from Dundy county
for life seven year ago for the killing
of a man named Bailey. Th two were
employed on the Mora ranch, two mile
from Benkelman. On day they were left
there alone and that wa the last time
anyone saw Bailey alive. Bush mad a
trip to town on that day and returned to
the plac alone. Bailey was missed for
two weeks. Then somebody found his
body In the Republican river. It wa full
of buckshot. Indicating that murder had
unmistakably been committed. Th
theory of the crime wa that someone
had killed - Bailey and dragged his body
to the river, where It was dumped
through a hole In th lee, the season be
ing winter. When the ' Ice melted th
body reappeared at the surface.
The only motive assigned for th kill
lng wa that the slayer ' wanted what
money Bailey had. . Bush, at th time, wa
IT year old.
