. Wilson's Train ' U Late.
URBAN A, O.. Sept. Vi.-r"No more pri
vate cars for me unless better arrange
ments can be made,' 'said Governor
Woodrow Wilson today. The private car,
according to railroad rules, could not be
attached to fast trains and as 'a result
Governor Wilson was forced to spend all
day on, the train when he might have
been in Chicago.
To add to the nominee's discomfiture,
the private car went through a series of
maneuvers in the railroad yards ,at Col
umbus that were far from pleasant. It
was shoved around In short, quick Jerks
which played havoc with the breakfast
table where the nominee was seated. The
governor made up his mind that unless
the railroads could attach the private
tA fax tr trains he would take the
rdlnajry reservations on sleeping cars.
Governor Wilson's train was two hours
late when leaving Columbus and Indica
tions were that the nominee would have
more difficulty in Chloago, where his
itinerary called for only an hour's leeway
In making connections with the train that
was to take him to Sioux City. Is., to
night , .
The governor spent the day reading and
dictating to his stenographer. A crowd
greeted the governor here and he shook
hands leaning over the rail of his car.

Attend the Meeting.
NO LAW FOR THE PROCEEDING

PRIMARY IS PLACE AVAILABLE
Secretary of State Has No Authority
to lace the Names of the pull
Moose Nominees o nth
LINCOLN, Sept. 16.-Speclal.)-A. M.
Morrtsey, democratic candidate for at
torney general, was at the state house
this morning and filed with the secretary
of state this afternoon a protest against ;
the appearance of 'the progressive party
candidates on the election ballot The '
protest goes farther than that and denies
the legal formation of the party.
For the first cause of objection to th .
admission of the bull moose candidates to
places on the ticket, the relator sets up
that no convention such as alleged was '
cer held; that the signatures to th
certificate were obtained at the stats
fair grounds, on the streets of Lincoln, at )
the hospital for the Insane and at the
penitentiary, and at other points remote
from the place where the alleged mass
convention Is said to have taken place;,
also, that many of the signatures ap
pended thereto are of persons who did
not In fact attend the allegee convention
end have no personal knowledge that
any such gathering was ever held.. That
C. O. Van Meter, who makes affidavit
to the certificate, did not see the signers
whose names are attached, and does not
know if they signed the certificate. That
the names of many persons signed to
the certificate are those of state em
ployes, who signed under duress for fear
of losing their Jobs It they refused.
No Law tor the Convention.
For a second cause of objection, Mor
rtsey sets up that the regular primary
election for candidates was held in April,
and that since then no primary has been ,
held, and that the alleged progressive
party had no candidates on the primary
ballot at the regular primary election In k
Third That there Is no provision - of
law that wUl awrtffl,'ifthe- nomination '
of candidates by a political convention, ' .
or by a mass convention, nor Is there any 1
provision of la wthat will permit the
nomination of candidates in the manner
as proposed by the certificate filed by
the bull mooeers. ' '
Secretary of State Powerless.
The objector further sets up that the
secretary of state has no power under
the law to put the names of the bull
moose candidates on the ballot; that the
laws of the state give no legal power to
hold a nominating convention to any po-
lltlcal party, old or new; that political
parties are prohibited from holding nomi
nating conventions; that the pretended '
did not represent any political party;
that those who took part In It are affili
ated with the old political parties, and '
participated in the primaries In April;
that the convention was called for the
purposes of defeating and abrogating the
result of that primary! that the conven
tion was not a mass convention, open to
all persons, but was made up of the se
lected representatives of a faction se
lected by a few . Individuals.
For these and other 'reasons the ob
jector protests against the names of the,
bull moose candidates being placed on
the ballot or being certified to county
clerks as being entitled to go thereon.
