Floor of the Recent
Mayor Dahlman entertains the oplnioo
thst Governor Shallenberger ought to
consider himself as lucky to be able to
grab as much of an endorsement as he
did at the recent democratic state conven
tion and that If the goernor knows what
is good for him he will keep to himself
any private opinions he may entertain and
not comment on the convention.
"If I nad done what the governor did
in signing the 8 o'clock closing law an en
dorsement of my action at the hands of
delegates in a state convention of the
party would be the last thing I would ex
pect." said Mayor Dahlman. "I have not
talked to any members of the resolutions
committee and know nothing of the con
tention within the committee, but I would
like to have seen the endorsement propo
sition go to the convention as a whole for
a fight on the floor.
"It is said the governor Insisted on the
endorsement plank. Whether or not this Is
so, I do not know, but I have a rather
firmly fixed idea that thrre would have
been a pretty fight on the floor of th
convention to pass the plank, had It not
been contained in the original report of
the resolutions committee."
The mayor does not hesitate to say that
he will be a candidate for the democratic
nomination for governor next year, but
says It is too early to make official an
nouncement to this effect. He will take
the wet side of the prohibition question,
knowing that Governor Shallenberger will
advocate prohibition if he asks for a sec
There seems to be a well defined Idea,
however, among politicians out in the
state, who make it a point to see Mayor
Dahlman whenever they come to Omaha,
that Governor Shallenberger will not run
for governor next year. They .pat the
mayor on the back by saying it is a fore
gone conclusion that Dahlman will be the
democratic nominee and that Shallen
berger realizes It. For this reason they
say that Shallenberger will probably shy
