Herbert 8. Daniel of the Omaha con

It was a convention of young men, he
believed, more than any national assem
blage ever held. "And the young men
were practically all for Wilson," he con
tinued. "They seemed to like the man
He has a fine personality, a clean record,
and he carried on his campaign for the
nomination In a clean and dignified way,
holding himself aloof from any entangle
ment that would discredit him, so that
the delegates that went there for Wilson
just simply stuck to the man through
thick and thin."
Mr.. Daniel says it was no great hard
ship for the Nebraska delegation to vote
for Wilson when the time came, because
al though the state . primaries went for
Clark, the delegates elected to the con
vention were, with the exception of three,
Wilson men at heart

Mr. Daniel says that the . talk of
Bryan'a having expected the nomination
la unfounded, as it waa clear from the
fight Bryan made that he sought nothing
for himself, and he pointed out that
Bryan said on the floor of the convention
that he would relinquish all leadership
of the party to Wilson. As to the state

vising Wilson to cut loose from Bryan
and the Bryan Influence, Mr. Daniel said,
"J am cure Mr. Bryan will not force him

whJch Wilson will not want his services;
and besides the Bryan lnfluenoe cannot

out here shows the sentiment to be that
Bryan Is greater than he ever was before,
and even greater than If he had received
the nomination himself. Bryan simply
dominated that convention from start to

Dr. Mathew H. Cryer of Philadelphia,

few days - of A. L. Reed and he has

The first ISO acres of this land, lying
two miles north of Millard, was pre
empted by Dr. Cryer"s mother about 1881
and the estate gradually waa Increased
to 70t acres. Never has this land been
old or transferred. It Is supposed to be
oue of the very few parcels of land in
this county held In the possession of one
ownership for more than fifty years.
Another Interesting feature about it

pre-empt land In Nebraska. She was the
third woman to become a citizen of the
United States and her son. Dr. Cryer,
believes he la the only man living who
became a citizen through his, mother'

to Council Chamber
Union bricklayers have quit - work on
the Happy Hollow sewer because George
Co., who are paying $100,000 for their
share of the Improvement, had failed to
employ an Inspector from the ranks of
the union. The matter was brought to
head In the olty council when Com
missioner Hummel ' and Secretary Ed
Shannon of the bricklayers' union went
to a clash following the latter's charge
that a butcher had been detailed to In
spect the sewer. ,
He Is -a butcher," said Hummel, "and
he's a brick inspector who has been In
the employ of the city engineering de
partment The only trouble is that he's
too good for that Job out there."
Shannon Insisted that a Union man be
appointed to Inspect the work of the two
men in the ditch. All bricklayers have
struck and refused to return to work
until a union man Is employed. Hummel
was obdurate, bat the other councllmen
prevailed upon him to taks up with
George ft Co. the matter of employing a
union inspector. ' '
Hummel said George & Co., had prom
ised to put a union man in charge at their
own expense, but had failed to do so,
The park commissioner aald the city's
share of the Inspection had been paid.
The contractor and R. A. Webber,
bricklayer, seconded Shannon's attitude
There is about five days' work to be don
on the sewer.
