"I do not expect to be a candidate for
governor," Bald Judge Hopewell. I have
my private affairs to look after, and I
have reached that sue In life where I
woold not like to get out and make a fljrht
for a nomination and then a campaign for
election If nominated.
"I appreciate the kind words that have
been said to m about the matter, and I
do not say that nmlT no circumstances
would I be a candidate. But at this time
1 am not expecting- to be a candidate."
Judge Hopewell believes the democrats
will have considerable trouble over the
liquor trouble brought about by the dec
laration of Mr. Bryan for county option.
"Ia seems to me." he said, "that Mr.
Hi-yan cannot very well stop now that he
has promulgated a platform, but that he
must select a candidate to run on that
platform. When he selects his candidate
It appears that Muyor Pahlman will get
the democratic nomination unless Mr.
Hryan's candidate defeats both Oovornor
Shallonberger and Mayor Dahlman. It Is
difficult to forecast 'Just how such a three
cornered flftht would come out. Mr. Bryan
Is strong with the rank and file of the
democratic party and It Is ,ery doubtful

found everything In very good shape. En
route to the home they stopped at Central

Commercial club of that city.
Time Table Changes.
The railway commlHslon spent the after
noon discussing informally the proposition
of notification td the public of changes
In time tables. All the railroads In the
state were represented at the hearing.
Tho railroad men said they desired to
notify the public as soon as they them
selves knew when chimges are to he madi-.
but It sometimes happens that when a train
in Iowa changes Its time that requires a
change In the same system In Nebraska.
It Is then usually too late to notify
the people through the country press and
the railroad docs tho best It can. It no
tifies the agent ','at each station and he.
In turn, posts Clio 'changes, not only . In
the depot, but In the postofflce. In addi
tion to that, the railroad men say thnt
parties', who travel, usually call up the
depot,- before starting, to get the exact time
of the departure, of .trains. .It. was the
oplrlui of tho railroad men that . very
few people are complaining on Uls score.
ffarLja'rlgiit of -the Northwestern k1
his road does not' publish Its time table
In the country papers. Should a- change
l9 ordered on Monday It frequently would
he Impossible to get the changes to tho
papers In time .-for their weekly publica
tions and thus the public would be goinj
by the old time table.
Tho railroad men agreed that It was' to
their Interest for the public to know when
changes are made In the tima tables and
they did all they could to keep the people
posted, but they' could see no reason for
an, order from the railway commission In
the case. .
