have been set going In Lincoln by the ad-,
vent of Rnea Hammond of Fremont Into
the race Tor , the Elmer Btephenson Job,
as it was generally understood herfe that
Mr. Hammond wanted no political Job, but
rather he wanted to be viewed In the light
of working reform for reform sake only.
The other avowed candidate for the. place
is W. B. Rose, the Norrls Brown political
manager and chairman of the republican
state committee. He has the support of
Senator Brown, publicly acknowledged by
the Junior senator, while it come straight

him, the politicians say, at the proper
time to the scrap. The political guesaers
down here have lined up to watch the
contest, believing It may develop into a
nice one. The advent of Mr. Hammond

the place and that nothing will come up
in the fight to Jar the pleasant relations
now existing between them. In the mean
time Elmer Stephenson will probably be
allowed to hold on peacefully until next
January, when he Is willing to retire and
might, perhape, be persuaded to stay awhile
longer to keep peace to the political fam
