LINCOLN, Sept. 12-(8peclal.)-The re
publican rounly committee met this after
noon and organized by the selection of
Charles E. Matson as rhalrnian and How
ard 8chlegel as secretary. The chairman
was Instructed to apiolnt an executive
committee to assist during the campaign.
John M. Stewart was selected a delegate
to the state convention and C. O. Wheedon
and F. C. Severlne were recommended for
members of the state committee.
In accepting; the chalrn ansh!p of the com
mittee Mr. Matson said he would accept
tha responsibility anly with the unierstaml
Ing that factional fighting cease with the
primaries and that each candidate and eacii
committeeman would go to work with the
perfect understanding that the principles
of republicanism were broader and more
Important than any factional differences.
He then announced thta he Intended to
sevsr his connection with the office of the
county attorney next Tuesday and remain
in tha county headquarters until after
election, devoting his entire time to the
work of the campaign.
Mr.; Stewart has been looked upon here
as one of the advocates of county option,
but whether he will vote for that plank
In the atate convention platform was not
discussed In the committee meeting and the
general presumption is that he believes
county option is purely a matter to be
dealt with by the county and therefore It
has no place In the state platform.
Tha meeting of the committee and can
didates was harmonious and enthusiastic
and most of the committeemen were

must purchase and receive the same at the

The above is the closing paragraph of
City Attorney John M. Rtewart's opinion,
handed down today, regardlns the legal
phase of the agitation to stop the sale and

changes In the aeroplane which were de
cided upon by the aeroplanlst after the
flight made yesterday for the purpose of
determining the rale of speed at which the
machine has been traveling. The sprocket
of the shaft now has ten teeth. The gear
tng will be reduced by substituting a
sprocket with nine teeth. This will result
in a greater number of revolutions of the
sprocket In proportion to the propeller,
thereby Increasing the power, but dimin

used his motor at 1,210 revolutions per
minute, but when the new sprocket Is In

1.450 revolutions. With this change, the
aviator expects to maintain an average
speed of at least forty-four miles per hour,
which would give him a bonus of $10,000 If
this speed were averaged in the official
speed trial. Bo far the motor has never
failed and during the longest flights has
neither become overheated nor shown any
