The 'audience cheered and cheered,-and
then the vote came quick. .
It wM,tafter. the , rentolutiotj' commltteo
had retired that Governor Shallenberger
came out flat footed In a statement that
ho. -would sign a county, option bill If re
elected and the legislature passed such, a
measure. The audience gave . the governor
a most enthusiastic hand on his statement.
It cheered long and loud. The Shallen
berger statement was not unexpected to
many, though the fire he put Into his
speech for the moment seemed to stir up
.the audience to a high pitch. . At the
inclusion of tho speech there were loud
cries for "Patrick," but the Sarpy county
candidate did not appear.
Help for Dahlnaan.
"Shallenberger's 'Indorsement of county

said Bernard McNeeny, a delegate from
I Webster county. "Dahlman is now the only
candidate for governor who stands com-
' mltted against county option.'
'Others expressed the opinion that he had
renominated himself by his speech. His
' speech was vigorously applauded by C.

in a tent used for the Grand Island Chau

Dahlman Intlsts on denouncing county

It must be endorsed. The governor
and his followers who seem to be In the
majority are favorable to a plank which
will' provide that county option Is not a
party Issue, but that the liquor question
should be settled under the initiative and

majority of the resolution committee will re
port the Shallenberger suggestion and then
Bryan and Dahlman an J Metcalfe will each
Insist on his plank. It was reported this
morning by the Bryanlt- that Shallen

that the governor pledge himself to sign

BELFAST, Ireland, July 26, Fire swept
through the Kelvin hotel today, burning to
death three employes, while several guests
received frightful Injuries. Five of the
guests were dangerously burned and others
are In a serious condition.
Among those surviving, who suffered most
were the Rev. William John McCaughan,
for nine years pastor of the Third Presby
terian church of Chicago, and his wife. ,
The Mccaugnans -were caught on an un
peg, floor, and. in attempting to find an
exit through the Lall. were terribly burned.
Their escape through the usual exits being
cut off by the flames, the minister and his
wife finally threw themselves from an up

with great: force, and when they were re

Dr. .McCaughan resigned his pastorate In
Chicago Jn May, 1D07, to become pastor of
the, May street Congregational in this city.
The fire burned out tne interior of the
hotel. The flames spread so rapidly that
the three, employes had no opportunity to
escape from the building and many of the
guests were compelled to Jumji or drop
from the windows of their rooms. Several
received serious Injuries.
