LINCOLN. Nov. 13. (Special.) Thu at
tempt of Joe Burns and John McKesson
of the Lancaster delegation to gel Doug
las county to Join Lancaster In a bolt of
I NnrHi Rrnwn. renuhllcan convention
nominee for United States senator, has
stirred up considerable discussion down
here, and, as usual, the fake reform
Journal and News have rushed to the
support of their pre-conrentlon allies and
plsce the blame upun Douglas county.
After publishing the story sent out from
Omaha regarding the visit of Burns and
McKesson, the News adds this paragraph
on its own account:
Mr. Burns Is still in Omaha. It was
suggested here this afternoon that pos
sibly the story was started In Omaha
for the purpose of shouldering oft the
blame onto some other county In case
the Douglas county delegation carries out
the threat It made some time before elec
tion. In the meantime. W. H. Thompson, the
democratic nominee for United States
senator, defeated, has come to the rescua
of Norrls Brown, and has pledged friends
of the attorney general to give him two
votes for every republican who go.-
astray. Mr. Thompson is quoted as say
"I know a fight Is going to be madj
on Norris Brown. I have been told so.
I want to aay right uow, if any republi
can members of the legislature vote
against Brown for senator I will have
two of my fellows vote for him. I have
told some of Mr. Brown's friends this
and I sent word to him not to make any
I.romises to any fellows who are trying
to defest him. If there is any deflection
from the republican party I will have
my friends fill the plac.ea so Mr. Brown
will get sufficient votes to elect him."
Regarding the object of - their .visit to
Omaha both McKesson and Burns have
published denials In the Lincoln papers.
Both claim they did not broach the mat
ter of bolting Brown to any member
of the Douglas delegation. The News this
afternoon contained the following:
If anyone other than members of the
Omaha legislative delegation stooti
sponsor for the tale about Lancaster
rountv statesmen hatching up a plan to
beat Norrls Brown out of the senatorsfilp,
people would be likely to give it more
credence; but as the Omaha men have
several axes to grind, any story originat
ing with them should be taken with sev
eral grains of saline matter. Nothing
would BUlt Omaha better than to stir up
a row and divide the republican majority
In the legislature so that Brown could not
be elected senator. It doesn't want to
appear In the light of starting any trouble,
but If such a division should arise Omaha
would soon come forward with two or
three candidates for senatorshlp. The
state will do well to pay little attention
to reports on this subject emanating from
Brian Knocks a Knocker.
L. G. Brian, state traasurer-elect. ac

"Tea, I am well satlelled with the way
tilings look now," replied Mr. Brian.
"Tea," said Johnson, "it looks like that
pass business about you is about dying
out und I hardly think It will cut down
your vote much."

Changes His Mind After Work of
Wecnrlnsr Jirr Had Commenced.
TEKAMAH, Neb., Nov. 13-(Speclal.)- ;
Jesse Headley this morning pleaded guilty !
to the charge of manslaughter In the second J
degree and was sentenced to twenty-three
yesrs In the penttentlory by Judge Ken- 1
nedy. The prisoner Is only V) years of age.
He killed his father, Jacob liendiey, on tne I
morning of May 15 last. 1
At the time the plea of guilty was en- j
tered, on tho advice of the defendant's at
torney, the regular jury panel had been
exhausted and only six Jurymen secured.
When asked if he had anything to Bay
before the sentence was pronounced. Head
ley simply shook his head, no. After giv
ing him a good talk Judge Ktnncdy sen
tenced him to twenty-three years In the
state penitentiary at hard lnbor, with one
day (the anniversary of the killing of his
father) out of each year for the first ten
years to be ient In solitary confinement
that he might meditate and ponder ovtr
the great atrocity of the crime he had com
mltted. Jesse Ifoadley, aged 19 years, killed his
father, Jacob Headley, on their farm -about
two miles north of Craig. May 16, 19mi. whllj
his mother and sister were away visiting.
On his mother's return she asked him where
his fathn was and he told her he had
gone to Tekamnh. This explanation seemed
very plausible, and as he did not come
home Saturday night, and she knew that
court was In session here at that time,
she thought perhaps he had lieen subpoe
naed on the Jury and was unable to come
home until court was adjournud.
After killing bis father Jesse loaded the
body In a swill cart and hauled it over the
hill about a quarter of a mile, where he
dumped It In the creek. The high water

was discharged, as there seemed to be no
evidence to connect him In any way with
While receiving the sentence Headley
did not seem the. least bit concerned and
did not wink an eye or shod a toar.
