LINCOLN. Xeb., Feb. l.-( Special. -The
filings of democratic candidates for the
presidency are brine. ck to the surface
some of the trouble! of that party. W.
J.- Bryan end those who have always
trained with him are generally credited
with favoring TVoodrow Wilson, but at
the same time Speaker Champ Clark of
Missouri also has a lien on the favor of
the three-time candidate. Bryan himself
!a la the attitude of "How happy I could
be with either. If the other dear charmer
iere away.' lie has postponed making
any public declaration of bis preference,
evidently "In the hope that lime would
bring some soiutlon of the embarrassing'
rltualioB, but the situation stubbornly re
fused to go into solution.
In spite of Bryan's dictum against
Harmon the Ohio man's friends have
filed his name to fro on the primary bal
lot, and there Is no disguising the fact
'that It la giving them considerable
worry. Mayor I'ahlniaji of Omaha and
John Maker of Lincoln are the recognised
heads of the Harmon movement tn Ne
braska and past experience demonstrates
they are strong enough tot mske the
Bryan following lots of trouble, even If
hey do not carry the state against his
Wdrlib Gove o I'lrdae.
U B. Kulier, private secretary to Gov
ernor Aldrlch. lu the absence of the gov
ernor today makes positive denial that
Governor AMrlch sent any telegram to
Uovemor Stubbs of Kansas pledging the
vote of Nebraska to Roosevelt 1n case
the latter was a candidate before the re
publican convention. Mr. Fuller asserts
ha handles all the governor's letters ami
telegrams and that he knows no such
letter or telegram was ever sent.
F. N. Merwln of Beaver City today
rent In his acceptance of the petition to
place hla name on the primary ballot as
a La Foilette alternate from the Fifth
dittrict to the republican national con
vention. The acceptance, however, will
have to go Into cold storage, as the peti
tion to which It refers has not yet been
filed with the secretary of state,
t.'. 8. Bassett of Gibbon today sent in
Ms filing as ' republican candidate for
Mass retldeta lrrrwlar.
A letter received by the secretary of
Mate from a prominent resident of Ber
trand staiea that only two of the names
signed to the petition to have Mr. Ross'
name placed on the ballot as a candidate
for the presidency are or have been tor
several years past residents of that place.
A similar report came from another town
represented on the petition. All the names
are of parties who at some tlmo or other
resided at the places set opposite their
names and the wonder Is where did the
circulator of the petition obtain the sign'
turea. ! ' '
Those who have been scanning the Jour
nat's straw vote on presidential preference
are wondering If the results obtained are
as reliable as the straw vote on the
mi) orally taken lust before the Isst Lin
coin municipal election. At that time the
vote showed Mayor Armstrong did not
have a look-in. but the count of the bal
lots election night landed Mm In the
mayor's office. . The straw vote may be
amusing, but it lacks much of being con
vincing. Stat Senator J. A. Ollls of Ord has
1 ten looked upon as a probable demo-
ratio randldate for railway commissioner,
but he Is out In a card In which he de
cline to make the rare and takes occa
sion to give the people several yards of
advice on the kind of a man who would
make a good official. In spite of the
lecllnatlon It wee remarked by a person
who read It that the letter sounded much
I ke Mr. Ollls' measure of himself.
A petition filed In the Lancaster county
I'lrrk's office asks that the name of P. F
Zjmmer be placed on the primary ballot
as a republican candidate for the state
senate from Lancaster county.
11. K. Purkett, republican candidate for
1 lie nomination of atate representative
from Lancaster county, has filed his writ
ten acceptance of statement No. 1 to vote
ftir the candidate for United States sera
tor who receive the highest number of
votes In the election.
Irrllk Clab Meets.
The State Swedish Republican club met
last night at the Llndell hotel and among
other things discussed waa the endorse
ment of someone for the office of lieu
tenant governor. At a previous meeting
i'. II. Oustafson and Petrua Peterson had
both sought the endorsement of the club
and after considerable discussion the
question wsa put over. Peterson has
withdrawn from the race, but while the
members of the club ei pressed a kindly
feeling for Mr. Oustafson no formal ac
tion was taken on the candidacy of any
one. The democratic central committee of
Taucaster county will meet Saturday at
1 w p. ir. to take a survey of tbe political
situation. One of the things to be dis
cussed is how Lancaster county can be
lined up to best meet the political wishes
of W. J. Bryan, and It Is a foregone con
clusion that friends of Judson Harmon
will receive scant courtesy. Another ob
ject Is to see It some way cannot be de
rived by which the democrats can cap
ture some of the local offices at the
coming election, particularly members of
the legislature. -v,
J. H. Morchead ef Falls City was In
Hnculn today, and after scanning the
letter nf 1. A. Ollls. in "which the senator
from Ord urged democrats to force all
candidates to Issue a platform In advance
of !he primaries, said that be was not
yet ready to make any detailed statement
of his ideas, but that he would do so
later. Incidentally, he declared for
.conomy in public expenditures and in
co.mr so admitted that the last legisla
ture, controlled by the democrats and of
w hies he was a member, made, many In
All State Warrants
From a Staff Correspondent)
LINCOLN. Feb. 1. Specia 1. 1 For the
first time in several months the treasury
today hi paying all warrants on presenta
tion. All outstanding registered warrants
have been called of this date and interest
on them ceases. Also the treasurer is
taking up all current issue either from
cash in the general fund or from invest
ment funds of the state, and they are
held for the benefit of the school fund.
Thts will mean a material saving for
parties who have claims against the state,
as dealers have Insisted on discounting
the state's obligations in the past. In
spite of the payment of the temporary
school apportionment In January the
fund In the hands of the state treasurer
show a heavy Increase over the amount
on hand January 1, being against
K3.6H. of the amount on hand
Kl.it is la depository banks The addi
tions to current cash arc due to the set

January, and there Is considerable more
to come in from this source, as all have
not made their January settlement.
