that he would expose the plot from the

spect to his connection with It:
"As I was going out of the Koehler hotel
on my way to the convention in the after
noon I met the governor coming to the
hotel. He stopped me and handed to me a
piece of paper which he said was the Met
calfe plank; that Mr. Metcalfe desired him
to hand it to Dr. Babcock, a delegate from
Adam county, that he could not find the
doctor and had another engagement which
demanded his immediate attention. He
therefore requested me to take charge cf
the paper and deliver it to Dr. Babcock.
I took it. carried It in my hand, so that
I would not forget it, and upon arriving
at the convention I looked for Dr. Bab
cock and could 'not find him, but meeting
Mr. M. F. Harrington, a member of the

the paper and delivered to him the mes

I tried to Impress upon Mr. Harrington
the Importance pf getting the resolution to
Dr. Babcock, so that It might be considered
by the committee and Mr. Metcalfe given
a hearin there''! if th committee thought
proper. Mr. Harrington took charge of
the resolution and said he would do as re
quested. That was the last that I heard
about the resolution until the' matter came

DIRECT LEGISLATION 13 LAUDED
MjrntMcnnt I.nnBuaae Is l'cd by the
Deposed Lender, with a Covert
Threat that Ills Opponent
Will Got No Quarter.
(From a fctaft Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Neb., July 2S Special Tele
gram.) Mr. Bryan Issued a statement thin
morning calling on the voters of bota
parties to nominate for candidates for the
legislature only those who aie.pledsed to
county option and the Initiative and refer
endum. County option, he said, should not
enter Into the congressional or senatorial
fight, tror cut any figure on the nomination
and election ol stuie officers, except the
governor. It I the belief of Mr. Bran, as
expressed in Ills statement, that a gov
ernor will be eincied who is either for
county option or pledged to sign a bill. He
does not designate the politics of the can
didate he believes will be elected.
The siktemunt In full follows:
"While the failure of the democratio
convention to endorse county option was
disappointing, still the fight for county op
tion In the democratic party has not been
In vain. In the first place It has helped
to secure a declaration in favor of the
lnltlutlve and referendum In both parties,
and now that all parties have declared
for It there Is no doubt of the necessary
amendment being submitted at the next
session of the legislature.
"The populist party declared for county
option two years ago, and it was to be
expected that it would declare for It again.
The work now to be don Is to s,ecur
county option candidates In every sena
torial and representative district. The dem
ocrats who favor county ' option should
turn out at the primaries and nominate a
candidate favorable to county option. . The
republicans In favor of county option
should be as active In securing the nomi
nation of republican 'candidates favorable
to county option. County ; option candi
dates should be dominated by alt parties
In each district, and I have no doubt that
this can be done in a great many districts.
It the democratic convention had endorsed "
count option... the' Iwsuu would have been. .
eliminated from our campaign for state,'
offloars, congressmen and senator. But
even as It is it will not be a controlling
factor except in the case of governor,
There Is no reason why anyone's vote en
other state officers should be Influenced
by the attitude of the candidate on tha
question of county option, and there la no
reason why we should not vote forour con
gressman with a vUw to securing repre
sentation on national issues."
Expelled from the' Hanks.
It is very evident that Mr. Bryan is go
ing to have no one In a position of prom
inence In the democratic party organization
who la not thoroughly in accord with his
views at this particular time, ,If he can
help it. He has severed th ties that bound
him to P. L. Hall, one of his most faithful
