(From a Staff Correspondent. )
LINCOLN. July 15.- Special.)-State Aud
itor Hllss R. Barton of Grand Island today
announced that he would make the race
for congress In the Fifth dlMrict next
year. The statement was given out Imme
diately upon Mr. Barton's return from a
trip to Denver and other western points.
The belief In republican circles hers Is
that Auditor Barton will not have to op
pose present Congressman Noriis, but that
the McCook man will soon announce his
candidacy fur the United Btates senate
Representative William Prince,' also of
Grand Inland, and former Secretary of
Btate George Junkln of Smlthfleld are also
aid to have the congresiMonal bee In their
bonnets and It la probable that their an
nouncements will be forthcoming as soon
as Congressman N orris states his attitude
en the senatorial situation.
John J. MacFarland of Omaha filed today
as a republican candidate for the nomina
tion for the supreme bench, while Charles
Anderson of, Oxford filed as a democratic
candidate for regent of the state university.
In filings for Judges of the district court
other filings received at Secretary of State
Walt's office today were: J. J. Thomas,
fustonlst, of Seward, for the Fifth Judicial
district; B. H. Tayne, democrat, for the
Labor Protests Water Cat.
In resolutions adopted at a meeting of the
Central Labor union last night stand was
taken against the alleged forthcoming re
duction of water rates to large consumers,
such as the Traction company, the Electrto
Light and Gas company and the Beatrice
Creamery company. The action taken
called attention of the city council to the
effect that city government Is meant to be
run so that the greatest good to the greatest
number results and that such a thing as
granting a decrease in water rates to the
corporations I would obviously be running
matters contrary to that policy.
I Harmon Jnasps I at Rate.
Clarence E. Harman of Holdrege, well
known democratic leader, and who last
year stirred up democratlo congressional
matters In the Fifth district by waging an
eye-opening campaign against Roderick Z.

the democratlo ticket. Harman has long
lent his hand and his pocketbook to the

Fremont where their contemporaries will
gather, are that a program of more than
ordinary Interest Is laid out for C B.

the state Industrial school at Kearney,
when that affair Is held.
The charge laid at ths St. Paul man's
door by those who are Quite frank In ad
mitting that they are going after his scalp
Is that he did not content himself last fall
with boosting for Aldrich .as against
Dahlman, but that he Insisted' on bucking
the entire state ticket as well. Not only
that, say. those of the populists who still
have a warm spot in their hearts for things
democratic, but the Industrial school head
la alleged to have quietly scattered trouble
for the democratic state organisation. Mr.

since the document making him the head
of ths reformatory under Governor Aldrich
