Candidates Fear Bryan.
The hoplesness -of the democrats to
carry the legislature and at the name time
the, hold Mr. Bryun has on these who are
candidates on the democratic ticket- was
evidenced by the number of legislative can
didates who got In under the Oregon' plan
and signed Statement No. 1 at the laset
mlnutce. Many democratic candidates for
,the legislature sent In Bpeclal requests
after making their filings and asked that
the secretary of state record them as hav
ing; signed Statement No. 1. This activity
on the part of the candidates was noticed
after Mr. Bryan issued his statement In
favor of an endorsement of that act of the
legislature of which he waa the father.
f t Motive of Patrick.
The fart that .W. , R. Patrick announced
hlmeelf aa a candldato for governor on the
democratic ticket after having said he
favored the euectlon of Senator Aldrlch,
republican; and that he was apposed to
both Governor Shallenberger and Mayor
Dahlman, has started some discussion
among democrats us to his real reason
for getting Into tho race. An Omaha
democrat Is authority for the statement
that Patrick said he was for Aldrlch and
hoped to see him elected. . Aldrlch la
quoted as having suggested that those who
desire to help him would boost Mayor
Dahlman for the democratic nomination,
as '. friends of the governor are of the
opinion ' that Patrick hopes In the long
luii to help Aldrlch by hla candidacy.
Though Mr. Bryan haa Issued five of
tidal statements in his latest round, he has
not yet aald whether he will support the
democratic norrJnee for governor If de
feated, In the. Grand Island convention, so
efforts are being made to draw him out
In this subject. Some believe that he will
support Patrlckf, and othera are of the
opinion Aldrlch fills the bill.
Will Attain Lead Pops
Governor Shaken berger has a cinch on
one nomination, that of the populist party.
He Is the only candidate for governor who
haa filed m that ticket..
Willis Reed of Madison, thought he had
