that Governor Shallenberger btlll Insists
that he Is It.
Mr. Hitchcock made his speech especially
'to the women arguing that they "make up

Dahlman Denies II n mors.
I understand It was told In Lincoln
that I had made the statement that I would
veto any appropriation for the state Insti

I untrue and no man ever heard me make It.
(I am In favor of appropriating enough
money to properly take care of them. I
want', the professors over there to under

'teaching the- young men and women of
this state and not to try to run the politics

' that they are paid to do, then there will
be no time for tljem to do anything else."
"nl discussing the liquor question Mayor
Dahlman said he would veto ' a county
option bill If one was passed by the legis

not oonslder himself a czar. I have de
ceived no man. I have told everyone here
that I will if elected veto the county option
bill. I want every one In the state to
know It. Now, If I am elected is not that
an indication that a.maJorHy of the people
of the state are opposed to county option.
"1 am not ft law breaker either," said
the mayor. "I stand for law enforcement

Late Legislature to Repeal or
(From ft Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Sept. 7. (Special.) "I sent
ft message to the last legislature In which
1 said, "the primary law should be irnealed
or it should be radically amended,' " said
Governor Shallenberger at the meeting of
the state canvassing board this morning.
"I should have cut off the sentence
after the word 'repealed,' " he continued.
"There is no justice in the ,i1mry law.
It Is all right in theory, but It does not
work out In practice. Under the primary
law the counties of Douglas and Lancaster,
if they get Into the same bed as they old
in the late election, can control the nomi
nation of candidates. We have found that
the politicians vote and manipulate the
primary instead of the people, and that la
what we tried to avoid. The primary law
was enacted so that the nomination candl
dates would be taken away from scheming
politicians and placed In the hands of the
people, but Just the reverse has been the
result of this law. The fart that out In the
Twenty-ninth senatorial district, a candl
date gets a nomination with only one vote
la enough to show the viciousness of the
"I agree with you that the primary law
should be repealed," said Treasurer Brian,
"in so far as It relates to the state, but 1
believe In a county primary law."
"I believe It would be all right to select
delegates to a state convention by primary.
but I am opposed to our state-wide pri
mary law," concluded the governor.

Fanner, Whose Body Was Found in
River, Was Killed Near Railroad
Station in Auburn.
AUBURN, Neb., Sept. 7. (Special Tele
gram.) It was definitely determined here
thla afternoon that John Ruby, the Murray,
Neb., farmer whose body was found float
ing In the Little Nemaha river near here
Monday afternoon, was murdered Thursday
night near the Missouri Pacific station and
that his body was taken to the river in a
light wagon. Evidence in possession of the
sheriff indicates that at least two men were
concerned In the Job and that robbery was
Mr. Ruby, together with several other
parties, made a trip to southwest Kansas
in view of Investing In some land in that
locality. The party returned Thursday night
via the Missouri Pacific The party, being
well tired out, slept most of the way. They
had passed this station when they dls
covered that Mr. Ruby was missing. They
finally came to the conclusion that he had
stepped off the train at this place, where
it usually stops for several minutes, and
had been left.
.An inquest waa held, also ft post-mortem
by Coroner I. W. Irvtn of this city, and It
was developed that there waa no water in
the man whatever, thus showing that he
was dead before being thrown In the river.
The body shows no marks of violence and
the face and head are so badly discolored
that it has not been decided as to the cause
of death. It Is the belief of the officers
that he was sandbagged or drugged.
Mr. Ruby had considerable money on his
person when last seen, and when the body
waa found there was nothing but sand in
his pockets, absolutely nothing of value be
ing left on his person. He was about 47
years of age and was the owner of a fine
quarter of land near Murray, Cass county,
which waa well stocked. He leaves a
family of four children.

LINCOLN. Sept. 7. (Speclal.)-Governor
Shallenberger will call no extra session of
the legislature to submit the Initiative and
refreendum, and thus again is Mr. Bryan
turned down by the governor.
"There Is no truth In the rumor that I
Intend to call a special session of the leg
islature," said the governor. "That is set
tled. I will call no extra session. It is
unfortunate that the recount of the votes
cast for candidates for governor has been
so alow, as it has given rise to all kinds
of rumors, but there will be no extra ses
sion." Mr. Bryan, so It was learned from very
reliable sources, still wants the governor to
call that extra session, and during the last
week has made this fact known. He was
unable to have a talk with the governor
about the matter, but he la expected back
to Lincoln the first of the week and at that
time he will have a conference with the
Had the initiative and referendum been
submitted at the fall election, Mr. Bryan
could have remained "regular" and sup
ported Mayor Dahlman, as he could have
argued that the liquor question had been
taken out of politics by the Initiative and

believe that Mr. Bryan is hunting for an
excuse to be "regular."

"Without reflecting on any republican
who may be within sound of my voice. I
wish to say that there would be much less
trouble for the party today If all of us
had been consistent republicans. The
trouble with ua republicans some of us
Is that we find It too eas yto manufacture
excuses for voting for some democrat. If
we all had always voted right we would not
have a democratic mayor today nor ft dem

"We do not always get In the platform
planks which exactly suit me. But the
point Is the greatest good of the greatest
number and it is for the majority to say
wha two ought to do and then for ua to
follow. The republican party Is right In
principle. It la always right In principle,
and when we stand by our principles In

But let me remind you this: There is not

And If other counties out In the state vote

But perchance the brewers could not build
as many $500,000 homes In the last half
