Use the blanks himself, though It Is possi

Mr. Taylor Intended to stay over to the
meeting tonight, but later decided to leave
the city at 8 o'clock.
Mr. Taylor Is strictly opposed to calling
an extra session.
"We had ample opportunity and a good
-and we did not do it, so I see no reason
i why the legislature should be called In
extra session for that purpose. I have re
ceived no word from the governor regard

that he is seriously considering this move.
I can not see any good that would- come

From the most reliable sources here it
Is learned that if Mr. Hitchcock expects
to get the support of the Bryan brigade
for senator he will be disappointed. There
aeems not the least doubt that T. S. Allen,
manager for the presidential candidate,
will be found looking after the interests of
W. H. Thompson of Grand Island, while
If he keeps out of the race himself,' Mr.
Metcalfe may favor the candidacy of the
Omaha editor, though there Is much doubt
about this. The only words that have

Mr, Thompson and Governor Shallenberger
will get together and join forces providing

Shallenberger have had more tleups prob

Some of Them Are Dissatisfied with
Way the Lincoln Meeting
(From a Staff Correspondent) '
LINCOLN, Jan. a. (Special.) As a re
sult of the action of Mayor Love, chair
man of the Insurgent meeting last night.
In announcing that he. had been authorised
to appoint a committee on organisation,
there is dlssensltlon in the ranks of the
"genuine progressiva Insurgents."
"I didn't like that statement from the
mayor that he had been authorized to ap
point a committee on organization," said
George A. Adams, one of the chief insurg
ents. "That smacks too much of Cannon.
I don't knew who gave him that authority.
I wanted to vote on that proposition." Mr
Adams gave vent to his. feelings on the
street car while going home from the meet
ing. It had been announced to a few before the
meeting that a small banquet would follow
for the select, but evidently this was cut
out, for Attorney General Jackson of Kan
sas, the principal speaker, was located
shortly after the meeting sound asleep in
a chair In the lobby of the Lincoln, a
stranger in a strange land, his reception
committee having faded away.
After the meeting some surprise was ex
pressed by many of those attending that
Mayor Love, who Is recognized here as a
scholarly gentleman of many virtues,
should have permitted himself to be
dragged into such an affair.
The audience was ready for anything, and
It had come keyed up to raise the roof for
anyone who could start it. As Editor Tay

LINCOLN. Jan. 2l.-(Spcclal.)-Clty offi
cials, business men and citizens of H.ive
lock have Joined in a denunciation of the
way In which their little city Is being ad
vertised, and the .criticism Is aimed espe
cially at the Lincoln Tractlonr company and
the press of Lincoln.
Because Lincoln Is dry, the little city of
Havelock has become the Mecca for the
thirsty of the capital city and every fight
or every disturbance In Havelock Is charged
up to th. citizens of that community. To
add to the humiliation of the shop town,
the traction company has secured a num
ber of Lincoln policemen and hnd them
sworn In as special deputy sheriffs These
officers, beginning yesterday, ride to Have
lock and come back on the cars after giv
ing a demonstration of power In the vil
lage. , "We believe we are getting the worst of
it,", said Mayor Hlnkle. "Before Lincoln
went dry we had no trouble at all here and
our people hardly knew we had any saloons.
At that time we had three saloons. Thre
were seven applicants for licenses when
Lincoln voted out her saloons, and as the
council was tied I voted against Increasing
th. number, because I thought wo' would
be better off without , having so many
places for the riff raff of Lincoln to loaf
"We have one policeman In the day time
and a night watchman. But every time
there Is a fight here or any kind of a dis
turbance we are held up to the state a. a
most lawless community.
"Our trouble comes directly from Lin
coln. W. are simply asking that the peo
ple be Informed that It is not the home
people, but the Lincoln people, who are
giving our town a bad name.
"I hope we will never again have the
samo" conditions as now. The two cities
should be the same, either both wet or
both dry. When Lincoln was wet and
Havelock dry then our boys that desired
to drink would go to Lincoln, and there
wasn't anything said about Lincoln being
such a bod place."
Basinets Men ' Aroused.
The business men of Havelock are very
much worked up over the action of the
Traction company because, they say, the
Traction company has violated Its fran
chise and has no right even to do business
In Havelock. The single fare to Havelock
Is 10 cents, though, to go from University
Place to Lincoln and transfer and then
go to College View orfly costs 6 cents.
The people of Havelock believe this-Is a
rank - discrimination and they now , have
In the courts a suit to oust the company
from doing business in Havelock. . When
the Traction company secured its fran
chise It was permitted to charge' 10 cents
for period of ton years, after "-which an.
agreement was to b. reached as to fare.
At. the 'time, of the passage of the, or
dinance th. argument used by the copupaay
and the citizens was that the fare would
be 6 oents. This is- the statement of of
ficials of Havelock, and. they maintain
that the company has not acted fairly with
the people of the show town.
In discussing the Lincoln drunks that In
fest Havelock, Chief of Police George
Smith said he had no trouble with the
old-timers, but that It Is th. $11 clerks
and the young men who cause the trouble.
These, said the chief of police, when they
see a beer sign . at once begin to swear
and create a disturbance, while on oc
casions, he said, the employes of the
Traction company had become drunk and
If it is the intention of the Traction
company to prevent Lincoln drunks from
leaving Havelock after having been
brought there by the company, the citi
zens Intend to resist uch an order. : They
Insist that as the Traction company bring
out the drunks and some of them they
said were drunk when they leave Lincoln,
the Traction company should take car. of
Honey for fne soldiers.
