approximately $100,000, was placed in the

This money it was told afterward went

Dan Stephens of Fremont on the populist

In his protest Colonel Eberly sets out
thst . the alleged nomination was not
signed by the officers of a duly consti
tuted convention and that the officers
who signed the nomination certificate
filed with the secretary of slate were
not authorized to do so for the populist
party of the Third district.
The other reasons ara that no legally
constituted convention was held at Nor

to have been, and that there Is not only
no populist committee tn the Third dis

cially exist in that part of -the state at
