LINCOLN, Neb.. Aug. fT (Special.
Governor A eh ton C. Bhallenberger, who
may be a candidate for United States sen
ator himself next year, believe William J
Bryan will be a candidate nd he says
Mr. Bryan hue a chance of being elected.
In discussing the campaign next year.
Governor Shallenbergrr said:
"The tariff will be the big issue In the
next campaign and the man who la elected
will be the candidate who standi for a de
elded reduction. It Is my Judgment that
kin Nebraska the majority of the people
are not In favor of the tariff bill that
passed and f that reason It will be a very
live Issue In this state.
"I am very much In favor of our law
which provides that the senator shall be
elected by a popular vote, for It Is very
Seldom that the people err In such mat
ters. I am ol the opinion Mr. Aryan will
be a candidate for United States senator,
and if he consents to make the race I be
lieve he will be elected."
Governor Shallenberger has taken a deep
Interest In the differences between Forester
Plnchot and Secretary Balllngnr since he
has had an opportunity to read up on the
matter and he expressed the hope that the
fight would not go so far that either would
be forced to retire from the service.
In discussing these two and Director
Newell of the reclamation service, the
governor said. "Both Plnchot and Newell
have won their places, and they should be
retained In the servloe to complete the
great work they have commenced. I do
not criticise Secretary Balllnger, for he Is
an able man and has done much good
work, but I hope the differences between
the two departments will not become so
acute that either Plnchot or Newell will
be forced to resign. Ihey should be so
licited to remain In office."
Split l p Prohibition Debate.
The committee In charge of the Woman's
Christian Temperarce union program at
the state fair has concluded to have Sena
torT'atrlck speak on Tuesday and Mayor
Daxlraan and W. B. Price ( speak the fol
lowing day. Dahlman and Patrick In one

ferson club of Los Angeles. The presi
dent of the club wrote the governor that
he understood he Intended to visit Los
Angeles this summer and If such were
the case the club desired the governor to
make a speech on any Saturday afternoon.
Band Concert Sanday.
The protest of the ministers of Lin
coln against a band concert at the state
fair Sunday, the opening day, fell on deaf
ears. The board decided to go ahead with
the arrangements, the band has received
the free advertising and everything Is
lovely once more. Rev. Mr. Batten called
upon the secretary of the board this
morning and said the newspaperN here
had been a little too radical In their re
port of the doings of the preachers What
the ministers objected to, he said, was
anything that would break Into the ob
servance of the Sabbath day. He did
not know when the discussion first came
up that It had been customary In the past
to charge admission to the fair on Sun
days. He left well satisfied with the ar
rangements of the fair board. The con
cert will be held at 1:30 o'clock. After
the hour of 2:30 an admla.lon of 25 cents
will be charged and befcie that hour SO
cents will be charged to get Into the

Of the charge that he had demanded a
15 per cent reduction on purchases made
by him of local merchants. Governor Shal
lenberger said It was absolutely untrue,
He said when Mrs. Shallenberger went to
settle some bills against the state for sup
plies for the mansion, she was told to de
duct 15 per cent and also deduct 15 per
cent for the private bills and this was
done. When a second firm presented a bill
Mrs. Shallenberger asked if there was to
be any reduction and she was told a re
duction of 15 per cent would be made for
goods bought for the state, but no reduc
tion for goods bought for private use.
By the firm from which she accepted a
reduction Mrs. Shallenberger said she had
been told It had been customary to make
reduction on goods bought by the gov
ernor and the governor has since been in
formed that all state officers heretofore
had boen given a reduction on their pur
Mrs. Shallenberger said she dealt more
with the firm that did not give the re
duction than the one that had.
In the matter of the charge that the gov
ernor had charged $00 for a speech de
llvered at the Is or folk schools the gov
ernor said: ,
I was paid $60 each for two speeches
that I delivered, one at Norfolk and one
at Alliance. The engagements were made
with a lyceum bureau to which I had en
gaged myself to make five speeches.
had nothing to do with the making of the
contract. I would hate to think anyone
thought that the speeches were not worth
the $60. Mr. LaFollette, you know,, gets
five times that much. However, where no
admission la charged I make no charge.
Both at Alliance and Norfolk admission
was charged. Had the school engaged me
would have made no charge, if no ad
mission had been exacted."
