county people evidently are not satisfied
to let the ease of Mm Murphy, whom
they hold In a 'measure responsible for
the lynching of Charles Sellers, who m
paying attention, te her, rest wtih the
refusal e ft he county attorney to prose
cute the case. The awn' who participated
In the affair are now serving a term tn
the penitentiary, but the cue against
Miss Murphy was dismissed. At the time
a request was made of the governor that
he send some Judge into the district to
take the place of Judge "Westover and also
to send the attorney general to Cherry
county to take charge of the case.
The governor has no authority under
the law to send another Judge into the
district, even had he desired to do so,
but since the chief executive has taken, a
hand In the affairs of Douglas county.
Judge 'WeMover has requested to have the
attorney general go to Cherry county and
appear1 before the grand Jury. County
Attorney Tucker was at the state house
today conferring on the matter. The
governor Is out o fthe city, but Mr.
Tucker saw the attorney general. Mr.
Martin takes the ground that he will not
o Into any county In the state unless
ordered to do so by the governor,' as he
holds he would be overwhelmed with such
requests It he acceded, to one. As the
governor was out of the city the matter
rests lust where It did.

LINCOLN. Feb. .-( Special -In spite
of the denials from hie close friends the
supporters of La Follrtte In Lincoln have
come to the conclusion that the Wisconsin
senator haa suffered auch a physical
breakdown that the definite announce

brought about the union of the La Kol

when the announcement came. t'P to
that time the leaders ot the la Foilelte
forces were saying nothing oould divert
them from their original purpose or In
duce them to make any alliances. Colonel
Roosevelt end his friends being selected
as a particular target, coupled with as
sertions that the Roosevelt candidacy was
sprung for the sole purpose of weakening
the La Foltette campaign. '
Now all la changed and they say there
la the utmost harmony and they will be
perfectly satisfied to march under the
Oyster Bay banner. Nothing apparently
remains to muke them happy except the
announcement of the former president
that he will accept a nomination for the
Kew Tark by Popalleta.
Democrats who desire to appear on the
ballot as both democrats and populists
have taken a new tack. Instead of filing
petitions, one saying they, are democrats
snd another selling forth their allegiance
to the populist perly, they file a populist
petition . staling they "have" affiliated
with the democratic parly, but omitting
any admission of allegiance to the popu
list party further than a desire to get on
the ticket. Just what Inspired tha new
