At Seventeenth and Clark streets a stout
woman got on the car and with some effort
made her way to a seat. She looked around
the car with amusement and presently her

to her since childhood no longer presented
their former aspect. She thought she was
becoming faint. She asked that the car
be stopped as she wanted to walk anyway.
The conductor tried to reach for the bell
cord, but he grabbed the cash fare register
and registered up sixteen fares before the
fat jvoman left the car.

LINCOLN. Dec. U-tSpeclni. Repre
sentative Mike Lee of Douglas waa In Lin
coln today. His frequent trips over ths
state has given rise to the report that he
is a candidate for speaker, but when ques
tioned he said thai he Is merely going
about working up Interest In Greater
Omaha, a bill whlchj he Intends to Intro
duce for tho consolidation of Omaha and
South Omaha, and a bill for the terminal
taxation of railroad terminals. When ques
tioned, Mr. Lee said: "Certainly, Mr.
iKxlue of Douglas ought to and will re
ceive the support of Douglas county. It
would be dishonest and traitorous for a
Douglas member to work against him."
Among the members of the legislature
who came to town today were Si-nator
J. C. F. McKesson of Lancaster; W. E.
Thome, senator from Nuckolls, and D W.
linker, representative from York.
Rob Clancy of the Union Pacific waa at

Cavalry Troop l.lrctlon.
General Culver has ordered the troop of
cavalry at Miiford to hold an election Sat
urday. The troop ha been In bud condi
tion, but It is hoped by a reorganisation
to place it in good condition.
It is rumored that William H. Wheeler
of Clay county, stcretury 1 the last sen
ate, is an applicant for secretary to Gov
ernor Sheldon.
Miss Cora Garber of the state land com
missioners office Is reported to be a can
didate for the position of private stcretary
to Governor-elect Sheldon. It waa asserted
at one of the oftices In the capltol this
morning that she is conducting an active
campaign to that end and has written to
several men in Webster county asking for
their Indorsements.
Asked by a reporter whether or not sha
is seeking to obtain the appointment aa
private secretary to the new governor,
Miss Garber said:
"I am not a candidate for anything."
No governor of Nebraska 'within present
remembrance has given tho private secre
taryship post to a woman. It Is thought
that Governor-elect Sheldon will foll,w
precedent In this regard. He has been In
the south for three weeks, and no an
nouncement of whom he has In view for
the place Is forthcoming as yet.

TECLM8ETI. Neb., Dec. 13. (Special.)
Tho annual meeting of the Johnson County
Agricultural , and Mechanical association
was h?U at the court house yesterday
afternoon. The following officers were
elected for the coming; year: President,
P. JI. Hopkins; vice president, Theodore
Smith; treasurer, T. J. Plerson; secretary,
C. M. Wilson; members boaM of manager,
Bdwiird Howorth, H. U. Miner, Al Rus

8cretary C. M. tVllson submitted his an
nunl report, which was accepted. It
showed the receipts of the annual fair to
be ll.9J9.40, and the expenses to be $2,100.92.
showing a deficit in current expenses for
the your of 1177.52. A committee from the
TeruniHfh Chautauqua association was
present nt the meeting with the request
that they be allowed the privilege cf hold
ing the Chautauqua next summer from
July '6 to 14, inclusive, on the fair grounds.

a political dictator, nor have I ever said
that I would control Buffalo county."
"Did you exert yourself or use your In
fluence In any way to Influence votes In
the recent campaign?"
"I did not. I neither sought votes for
anyone by word of mouth or wrote any
political letters."
"How about state money bring paid out
of the dorml'ory fund to help you control
your ward at the primaries?"
"1: ts absolutely untrue. I have a re
ceipt for every penny scent out of all
fuads, showing what waa received In re
turn. '
Here President Thomas produced bis
biennial report of expenditures at thi In
stitution. He went over It in company with
two newspaper men and explained a num
ber of luim which might have beeu In
terpreted as payment to employes for
campaign purposes. He asked the re
porters to notice that about halt of these
payments were made to women.
"Of course the women wer all out to
the primaries," Mr. Thomas sarcastically
remarked. "They all vote out In Buffalo
county. Here are the names of some
students, too, who were j.aU small amounts.
Several of them are old enough to vote,
and others don't live In my ward, but 1
see I am accused of having them on the
payroll to help me politically."
Relative to the crowding of the State
Normal with students residing al Kearney
who should be attending high school In- ,
strad, Mr. Thomas said there are only j
121 Kearney residents attending and that 1
forty-nine of that number are high school I
graduates. The number Includes many
grown teachers, some of them married,
who hava removed to Kearney for the pur
pose of getting the advantage of normal
training. On account of tbeir age, these
could not go to high school. The normal
management. Mr. Thomas says, wants a
high standard and Is not anxious to admit
students who have failed to complete the
tenth grade In the course of study. On the
contiary, they are encouraged to remain
at home until they have got as far as
that. The Kearney High school takes them
through the twelfth grade.
President Thomas asserts that there will
not be a deficit In a single fund at the
Kearney Normal, although the school has
been patronised by three as many
students aa the legislature counted upon
when the appropriation was made. The
teachers have generously agreed to accept
hulf salary fcr one month, so that it will
not be necessary to present a deficiency
