LINCOLN. Neb.. Feb. 12.-4Special.r-Governor
Aldrlch hu returned from his
trip to Chicago, where he attended a
conference of governors favorable to the
-.candidacy of former President Roose
velt. He appears to be satisfied over the
outlook, but from a few remarks dropped
it is evident Governor Hadley of Mis
souri and other governors did not hitch
'ery well.
The sessions were executive, but the
governor Intimated there was an opinion
that Hadley wanted to run the whole
thins and there were several others there
who desired to have something to say,
the result being- several clashes. Hadley
Is credited with having an ambition to
he the vice presidential candidate on a
itoosevelt ticket, and It Is Intimated hi
is not the only similar ambition harbored
about western executive mansions.
Aldrieh Sat Hlitlai It.
Governor Alty-Ich's vica presidential
boom drew a mention today In the form
of a te'egram from the Chicago Inter
tK-ean, which wired him aa follows:
."Chaunccy Depew says your name has
bt-en under consideration for vice presi
dent on Roosevelt ticket. Will you
kindly wire anything you wish to say on
the subject?"
Governor Aldrlch sent the following re
ply: DM not know I was being mentioned
as candidate for vice presidency on the
Itoosevelt ticket. It is premature to
think of such a thing. This position
peeks the man and it is Impracticable
for the man to seek the office of vice
This telegram and the report which
drew It out probably had its origin in
the recent meeting of western governors,
at which It was currently reported sev

Sentiment of local democrats concern
ing the attack by Congressman Dies of
Texas on William J. Bryan Is con
siderably divided. Those who oppose
Hryan. particularly the friends of Har
mon, are complimenting th Texan, while
the followers of Bryan are by no means
united in condemning the attack. Many
of them assert that while they like Bryan
and endorse most of his policies, they
appreciate that tha former presidential
candidate haa a dictatorial manner
which Is not pleasant and In fact very
utten uitenaive.
Says one: "The principal trouble with
Bryan is thai there Is no question In his
mind that he Is always right and every
one who disagrees with blm la not only
necessarily wrong, but that he la actuated
by some ulterior motive. His intoleranoa
Is becoming unbearable to a large many
and though I have always followed his
lead I must confess that this attitude of

LINCOLN. Feb. Il-((ipeclal.-The
Board of Public I-amls and Buildings has
decided to guard aga'nst the atate Insti
tutions being out of coal through bad
roaus. congestion or delay of freight
traffic or a strike of coal miners, which
is considered not Improbable In view of
the failure of the operators and mlnert
to agree on a scale for the coming year.
At the recent meeting of the two or
ganizations they were far apart and In
consequence heavy consumers of coal
have started a demand on the 'nilnea
which la giving some trouble lo fill, but
the Whitebreast Coal company, which
has the state contract, believes It ran
furnish a supply for storage. The board
decided to have a thirty days' supply of
nut coat delivered and stored at each of
the state Institutions In addition to pur
chasing the ordinary steam coal for cur
rent needs. The coal for storage is to be
nut snd costs N cents per ton more than
the slack usually used, but the latter
cannot be stored as U. heats and catches
fire. While the storage coal costs more,
the board also believes it Is worth more
snd that the slight additional expense Is
warranted by circumstances.

they must not permit such things In the

forming was then making Its last ap
pearance In the state. This Incident also
served to call to his attention that many
