LINCOLN. Jan. 27. (Special.) Democrats
in the Fifth district are becoming uneasy
over the fight that is developing between
Fred Ashton and R. D. Sutherland for the
democratic nomination for congress and
they are anxious to get a third man who
might defeat them both.
The man they have picked on to make the
race is Colonel J. V. Furse, Secretary , to
Governor Shullenberger. Several delega
tions have been In to request the secre
tary to permit the use of his name. In ad
dition to this Mr. Furse has received let
ters urging him to consent to be a candi
date. So far Colonel Furse has Indicated a de
sire to be left alone, right where he Is and
his loyalty to the governor floes not permit
him to enter tain seriously the Idea of run
ning at this time, though the pressure is
getting strong. Many democrats, how
ever, from the Fifth district Insist that . It
Is to the Interest of the party that ho an
nounce his candidacy and thru his personal
wishes In the matter should not stand
In the way of doing a stunt for the party.
Governors, nod Vice Presidents.
Notwithstanding Congressman Latta has
nominated him for ioe President and the
governor enjoys Washington life, Governor
Shallonberger this afternoon expressed
himself as not In any sense being worried
about having to remove from the state.
Some of his callers this morning urged
him emphatically to decline the nomination
at the hands of the democratic national
oonventloi, for they predict that In case
he permits the miller, to iuu on, history
may repeat Itself and he may find himself
back on the farm.
In tlve meartime if Mr. Bryan could be
induced to sign a statement and give a
bond that he would nut accept a nomina
tion for the senate it Is a safe guess to
say that tho governor would leave a clear
field for Mayor Dahlman. Otherwise, his
friends say the executive will try for his
Railroad Hearing- at Hastings.
Tho hearing of the complaint against the
Burlington for not giving adequate train
service between Red Cloud and Hastings
will ba held at Hastings February 9. One
of the commissioners will go to Hastings
to take the testimony,- but it has not yet
been decided which commissioner will be
detailed to go.
To Increase nates.
The Douglas County Telephone company,
operating at Valley, Waterloo and Elk-
horn, has filed a modified petition, asking
tha State Railway commission to Increase
rates. The proposed Increases are as fol
lows: Independent party line, from S1.50
to $1.7S for business," and from $1 to SI. 25
for residence; farm line, SI to $1.25, pro
viding that If the charges are not paid six
months In advance an additional charge
of 25 cents shall be made. Tha hearing
on this application has been set for Febru
ary 15 at Valley.
In its petition tha company set out that
it is trying to improve amd increase its
service and that material costs much mora
than it did when the company first began
to operate. For that reason it ifnds that
It is necessary if it keeps up a high cla
service to increase the cost.
I. amber Hearing: Postponed.
The complaint of the Omaha people
against the railroads for alleged discrimi
nation against that city In the matter of
rates on lumber set for hearing eomorrow
has been postponed for thirty days. The
case will be heard by the railway com
mission. Democrats Can PersniyBe Tolpp.
Senator Fred Volpp of TScrlbncr, who
fought so manfully last winter to be known
as the father of the banking bill, but who
was pacified by having the committee agree
to call it tha "Volpp-Wilson" bill, which
agreement the committee failed to keep, is
ready to be persuaded to be a candidate
for the democratic nomination for state
treasurer. To his friends here Mr. Volpp
appeared as one very anxious to get Into
the running, though for publication he felt
certain that he was not now a candidate.
Mr. Volpp was sure, however, that he Is
for Mayor Dahlman for governor, notwith
standing the office of the governor ap
peared wU satisfied with what the senator
said In there regarding his preference.

From the present outlook the people of
Kearney will be treated with an excep
tionally low price on Ice during the next
summer. A local Ice company, dealing en
tirely In natural ice, baa lowered the price
to 25 cents per hundred pounds, and this
has brought the artificial Ice plant's price
down to 30 cents per hundred pounds. On
account of the long cold season an Im
mense harvest was gayiered off of Lake
Kearney this winter. Two large ice houses
on the lake were filled to the top, and
whatever buildings that could be obtained
were filled with natural Ice that rivals the
artificial In clearness and quality, Whether
the price will go lower when the dealers
get to sparring for business remains to be
seen, hut even at this rate the people will
be paying IS cents per hundred pounds less
than they have ever paid before.
