(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, July 1 (Special Tele
gram.) It la the plan of the Bryan demo
' crats, aided by bunch of tryanlte,
who have at y led themaelvea republicans,
to fight the senatorial battle on the
county option Issue.
At this time they are laying their
lawa to compel Henator Burkett to get
Into the county option band wagon and
let up on national Issues. They are ar
ranging mass meetings for Lincoln and
Grand Island to endorse county option
and they have Invited Senator Burkett
to address the meeting here.
Rchard L. Metoalfe. the democratic
candidate for senator behind whom the
near republicans are lining up", la publicly
committed to county option, and It la
the hope of theae Bryant tea to have
Senator Burkett get on the same plat
form or on the antl-optlon platform, so
that county option will be the sole Issue
of the campagn and thus the splendid
record of the republican national ad
ministration will te overshadowed. These
near republicans figure the only way
they can hope to bring about the de
feat of the republican ticket this fall Is
by clouding the Issues so their polltcs.1
records and the democratic record will
not be brought to the fore.
The meetings are to be under the
auspices of what Is known as the state
county option, which ' was organsed here
last winter. This organisation proposes
It Is reported to hold one meeting at
V Grand island and one meeting at Lincoln
the night before the state convention. At
I the Grand Island meetings the speakers
united are Lyale J. Abbott of Omaha,
W. R. Patrick of 8arpy county, Richard
L. Metcalfe, Hoke Smith of Georgia and
W. J. Bryan. Chaplain Harmon will be
asked to preside. It has not been de
termined who will speak at the Lincoln
'm meeting, but Invitations have been sent
9 to E. P. Brown of Lincoln, C. F. Reavls
( of Fall City, R. B. Windham of Cass
1 county, C. O. Whedon of Lincoln, C. M.
I Brown of Cambridge and Senator Burkett.
It Is proposed that E. P. Brown will
preside at this meeting.
The politicians who are behind these
meetings are not giving It out that their
Whole object la to make county option the
one Question of the campaign so that the
democrats may have a chance to elect
senator and state officers, though
from the most reliable source it Is
learned that this la the object of the
Me teal fe F.HUe Way.
Should Senator Burkett attend the
xn--a meeting and declare himself In op
position to county option, they intend to
at once denounce him as an agent of the
brewers, and if he endorsts county op
tion, they will continue to ' boost Met-
calfe Just the same.
A aother Bryaa Plaa. ,
N,lfc developed today that C. W. Bryan had
7 fnore to do with that so-called republican
convention laat Thursday than was tnt
mated this morning in The Bee. Mr. Bryan

dosen near republicans were to Jump on
Senator Burkett had he (persisted In his de
mands to.be chairman of the convention,
and each waa to do a separate and distinct
tunt to confuse him. It Is even reported
on good authority that these Bryan helpers
bad their little pieces written out, but
Whether the carbons had been furnished by
Charley Bryan or Paul Clark cannot be
learned for a certainty.
Richard L. Metoalfe has hsrkened to the
calls to arma and Is now a full fledged
candidate for United States senator agatnst
